High Note - PL 7 - Cyrith

Recommended Posts

High Note

Power Level: 7 (97/110 pps)

Trade-Offs: None

Unspent PPs: 13

Real Name: Gordy St. James

Age: 14

Occupation: Student/Actor

Identity: Secret

Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no criminal record

Other Aliases: None

Base Of Operations: Freedom City

Marital Status: Single

Known Relatives: Robert St. James (Father), Gina Favro-St. James (Mother), Thomas Favro (Half-Brother) Lilly St. James (Sister)

Group Affiliation: Claremont

Goals: Broadway Baby!

Height: 5 ft. 4 in.

Weight: 119 lbs.

Eyes: Green

Hair: Dirty Blonde

Strength Level: High Note possesses the normal human strength of a child his age, height, and build who engages minimal moderate exercise

Known Superhuman Powers: High Note creates powerful sonic waves with his voice with which he can achieve various effects. As a secondary effect of his transformation, and years of exposure to stage lights and loud music, High Note is protected from sensory overload.

Weapons: None

Abilities: As Gordy, High Note is an respected singer, dancer and actor.

Personality: Gordy is most easily summed up in one word. Campy. Almost everything in his life revolves around the theater, doubly so for the works of Steven Sondhiem. Gordy is by no means a dumb kid, but has found that his charm and good looks are enough to get him by most of the time, so he is more likely to be reading the latest Variety in class then the assigned texts. Gordy is well known by most of the student body for his penchant for spontaneously bursting into song in the hall ways, as well as his often failed attempts to recruit fellow students into performing in plays with him. To date his greatest success toward introducing the student body to musical theater was his one man show of Gypsy. It was a success as he learned he could use his powers to deflect the tomatoes various classmates decided to throw(not that it was bad, it just that a play about a former stripper is probably a bad choice for a boarding school.) Gordy manages not to fall into the trap of Prima Donna, though he does love to be the center of attention.

History: Gordy was born the second child of seamstress Gina Favro-St. James, the first to be the product of her marriage to Robert St. James, a struggling lawyer. During his formative years the St. James family lacked money and could not afford day care. As such, Gordy was often to be seen accompanying his mother to her jobs at the Beaudrie Opera House, exposing him to musical theater and opera at a very young age. Gordy quickly became something of an unofficial mascot, just as often found in the care of the actors and directors as in his mothers. As he grew older and started school Gordy would still come to the theater most every day his mother worked, usually to help with everything from serving as a live model to running lights and filling in for absent actors, and occasionally performing in shows. It was during one of these times when Gordy, practicing for the part of Gavroche, found himself witnessing a battle between Dr. Metropolis and Hiroshima Shadow. Gordy ran for cover in the wings, but was struck by a stray bolt of energy and knocked out after hitting his head on the barricade prop. Gordy came to hours later in a dark room and, not knowing how he got there, proceeded to scream, unleashing a fine piercing shrill, and alerting the nurses that he was up. After being assured that he was fine, just being kept for overnight observation, Gordy went back to sleep. He was reawaken the next morning to hugs from his sobbing mother, and a visit from a man he had never seen before. The man introduced himself as Duncan Summers, headmaster of the Claremont Academy and asked Gordy about what had happened the night before, and if he could do the scream again. After hitting his repeat performance, Duncan offered Gordy a spot at the Academy, a spot he accepted about being assured he would still be able to be in Les Misérables. Gordy has taken well to Claremont, though was quickly banned from singing in the shower, as even without his powers he tends to cause ringing in peoples ears.

We do use Claremont Academy here, so High Note could be a student there. Let's see, going through your sheet:

Your Sensory Shield gives you a +12 on saves against Dazzle attacks. You're still PL-limited to a maximum of +15 for saves, so you'd have +15 on the Reflex save, +15 on the Fortitude save, and ignore all Dazzle effects that are DC 15 or lower. You could lower the Sensory Shield by one rank. It'd leave you at +15/+15 on the saves, and you'd still ignore all Dazzle effects up to DC 14.

Everything else looked good, though it took me a couple of reads to figure out how the combat worked. Thanks for the point add-up at the bottom; it was helpful.

If you want to lower that Sensory Shield, go ahead. If you want to keep it, I'm ready to approve you.

Good catch. This is why i need to get a second pair of eyes to look over my builds.

Argh, had a brain fart there and forgot I was looking at a PL 6 hero. The limit on saves is 5+PL, and your PL is still 6, not 10. Therefore, the max save on Fortitude or Reflex is +11, not +15. This means that if you want to hit cap with the Fortitude save, you need Sensory Shield 4 (+8 from the power, and +3 from the regular save). Of course, that lowers the maximum...

Or, as I just realized, something that's even easier is to take Immunity (dazzle effects) for 5 pp, and avoid the saves altogether. Sensory Shield is a bit overpriced, and I don't think it would be out of character. That'd save you 5 points over what you've done so far.

Also, Knowledge (Musical Theater) could be Knowledge (Art), which covers musical theater among other things. It just helps us to use the Knowledge specialties within the book, so we're not confused. I, for one, get confused too easily.

Alright, did some more shifting around. Upped his singing and acting checks, so he's now an expert in singing. Added in keyboard so he can write his own songs. Hopefully third time is the charm.

Alright, did some more shifting around. Upped his singing and acting checks, so he's now an expert in singing. Added in keyboard so he can write his own songs. Hopefully third time is the charm.

1. Your AP Deflect is only 2 PPs per rank, so with the Ranged extra you can only block 1 attack type (Slow Projectiles, Fast Projectiles, or Energy). You need to specify which one you can Deflect.

2. Your AP Nauseate is only touch range. You should probably include some flavor text explaining why High Note needs to touch a person to Nauseate them with his vocal powers.

1.)Did this change in UP? I don't have that book. Core says for two points per rank it's all ranged.

EDIT: I think I see what confused you. That's not the ranged extra, that's Deflect ranged attacks.

2.) Never really thought about it. I suppose he just has to be that close for the Bass frequency to play havoc on peoples stomachs?

It did change, and I was confused. Deflect is 1 PP per rank for each type of attack you want to deflect: Slow Projectiles, Fast Projectiles, or Energy Attacks. So to deflect all three is 3 PP/per rank. Also note that UP Deflect is capped by Defense Bonus now and not Attack Bonus, so 5 ranks in your case.
