Unspent PP: 3

Characters Name: ArmyofOne

Alternate Identity: Benjamin Witherspoon III

Height: 6' 1"

Weight: 180

Hair: Muddy Brown

Eyes: Muddy Brown

Description:

Benjamin is a bit of a throwback to his eastern European ancestry, with muddy brown hair and dark eyes. With strong features, including a hawk-like nose he is a bit off the standard American blond hair and blue eyes standard, but is pretty good looking even though. He has the body of a serious athlete with a nice balance of well developed muscles in all areas. He has no piercings, and only has one tattoo, a dagger on his left waist just above where his belt would be. He still doesn’t know where he got it. His buddy Fred won’t tell him, but looks amused whenever Ben asks.

Ben dresses well, and tends to wear tight muscle-enhancing shirts with a nice semi-casual slacks and jackets in off colors, mostly brown, gray and dark blue. His main flash is his wristwatch, an expensive courier watch he won at a competition. It is engraved “Ben W. 1st place Regional Championship 2006. He is almost never without it.

ArmyofOne goes for darker colors mostly blues and grays, and so far changes his costume quite often, but with the same color scheme so he is not hard to identify even though the changes. With his different hair colors and facial features manifested through his power, he is really hard to identify, especially as his real face tends to hang way back out of the action.

History:

Ben was born 19 years ago in Massachusetts near the shore. More or less a normal boy, he exhibited no Super-power until he was 17 years old. From his youngest years he was an amazing gymnast and practiced long hours and won a lot of child’s competitions, the funds from which went into further training.

His parents, Alan and Grace were old when they married and had him, an only child. (40 and 38 at his birth) and never really could keep up with him, as Ben was a veritable tornado of energy. His mother, a stay-at-home-mom was run ragged by his pace of activities, centered by gymnastics. His father, a purchasing manager at a power company, spent a lot of time with him on weekends and went to most of his tournaments and championships. He had a good family life.

His Uncle John was the real breadwinner and hero of the family, which had been moderately wealthy since colonial times. Unfortunately, Alan and John hated each other, and neither was shy about showing it at any family gathering, so those got fewer and fewer as Ben grew up. John stayed in the family, and Alan and Grace were unfortunately pushed out.

Ben continued into High school and then University on a full gymnastics scholarship. Winning many state contests and placing well at the national level, he is well known in his sport, but not by outsiders, many students even at his own University don’t even know they have a gymnast team. That bothers Ben sometimes, as football stars rule campus, even ones far less talented than him. Sometimes Ben wishes he was good at team sports, but he just never has been.

His heroic career started when he was 17 and just about to graduate from high school. He was alone at a park at night, and heard some feminine screams coming form a stretch of bushes in the darkest part of the park near his school. When he came up, he surprised three young men attacking a fellow female student and Ben waded in, sure he could take the three of them due to his physical abilities.

But that was not the case, for the three were far tougher than him, and Ben was losing the fight until a man jumped out of the bushes to help him and then a second. The three men, (Ben and his helpers) were enough to chase the three attackers away but took quite a bruising in the process, during which the victim ran away and escaped. Ben looked at his two helpers, both young men much like him, and thought they looked familiar. He went to a nearby coffee shop and talked with them for a couple of hours, and got along great with them, just like old friends. Old old friends. Ben really enjoyed talking with them, and they parted ways.

Ben looked for them at school the next week, but did not find them at all.

A few months later, Ben was working out in the city gym by himself, and really pushing himself, as he needed to perfect a move or two for the state Championships, which were in only three days. His coach and fellow teammates, having long gone to bed, left him in a bind. For there was a maneuver he could only do in a group of three, so he went out in the hall hoping against hope that someone was there. Well, he met a pair of young men, again a bit familiar, who were also excellent gymnasts and helped him complete his training before they walked away.

This happened more and more over the next months, until it seemed like Ben was the center of an immense ever-changing crowd of men. He went to movies with them, ate out, and just BSed but finally he started to get suspicious, especially when he went by mirrors and could not really figure out who he was. Now that really freaked him out, but suddenly he realized that he was indeed all of them, and with that realization is mental link, previously unconscious, came to the fore.

So a hero, ArmyofOne was born.

Since becoming aware of his abilities, he has started to use them, going out at night and patrolling (thus fairly safe) areas of the town, sure that his 5 duplicates can handle most troubles that might arise. He has been successful, and he has been starting to yearn for the better times, and a bit more fame than he has managed to get thus far. As he is still a student, though, he still has a bit to wait.

On two occasions so far, one of Ben’s duplicates has been killed. One by gunfire and another by being hit by a bus. In both cases Ben was unharmed by this experience. However, neither was the one he thinks of himself, the one whose appearance is his. He really doesn’t know what will happen is the ‘real’ him dies, if he will live on in one duplicate, or if that will be it, so he keeps the real him back as much as possible. (I would like him to change to another one if he dies, however.)

Once his real self was injured by falling off a roof, but when his duplicates came to help, he found out that when they returned to inside him, his real self’s wounds healed miraculously, but not totally. His duplicates wounds just have no effect when he reabsorbs them.

One odd part of his power is that at he duplicates do not look like him. Never. The yare all close, with one feature in common, like eye color, hairstyle, or his hooked nose, but everything else varies, sometimes wildly.

Personality & Motivation:

Ben is overall a pretty easygoing guy, though he can be a bit driven and a perfectionist about something he cares about. But he is not one to throw things in people’s faces, he just seems confidant he is at least average, and in many ways above everyone he meets. A bit arrogant at times.

ArmyofOne is an Acrobatic star, one of the best college contenders in the country. Decent at most sports, especially single activity sports like tennis, golf and such, he has never been skiing or snowboarding out of a distinct dislike of the white stuff.

His motivation is the thrill of adventure, more than anything else. He loves the thrill of danger, and huntil bad guys makes him fel like a character in a cop drama, or even a comic book. He majors in criminal studies nad is thinking seriously of becoming a cop, maybe even befroe he graduates....

Strike 3] [strike 3 PF: Mighty] [4]

Strike: Good, but you do realize that this doesn't count as Unarmed, right? Do you mean for your Improved Critical and Attack Specialization to count for this?

Morph: Is it Morph 4 or Morph 6? Move action is not a suitable flaw for Morph. It is a drawback, -1. Uncontrolled Appearance doesn't even seem like a drawback. Please explain it.

Duplication: Good

Ok, I will change the attack specialization to Strike.

As for morph, I want the duplicates to appear different from the base character. Should this just be a feature? I don't really care if people see through the disguise or not. The reason I took action was so I could link Duplication and Morph.

Yeah, sounds more like a feature than full blown Morph.

Looks good. Did a slight edit to include the PL in the title as well as removed the extra bracket in the Strike area. Approved
