History

More or less.

Are you patriotic or a social outcast?

In the middle- I dont care about politics, but if someone tried to invade it, I'll be in the frontlines.

What are your opinion of home?

Its okay. Not much to compare to, but I have no reason to leave.

Where is your home town?

Freedom City. I said that already!

Are your real reasons for becoming an adventurer different from what you tell others?

I got nothing to hide from my friends. Friends equal those I can trust.

How far would you go to keep such secrets from being revealed? What would you do if the truth became known?

I'd rather nobody found out, for the sake of my daughter. And if anyone discovers it, I'll use some heavy diplomacy to make them my "friends". Or silence them forever... nah, kidding.

What do you fear would occur if the truth became known?

I fear it would hurt my daughter. Its the last thing someone will do in their life.

How do you feel about other races?

Neutral. I know a lot of bad and good people, race doesnt matter.

Were there any traumatic experiences in your early years (death of a family member, abandonment, orphaned at an early age)?

I grew up with abusive parents. Explains a lot.

Briefly describe a defining moment in your childhood and how it influenced your life.

There isnt one that overshadows others. Probably something to do with my father, but I dont wanna talk about it.

What stupid things did you do when you were younger?

Joined a gang, bullied a lot of kids and were generally an a-hole. I dont really regret them though, what happened happened.

Which toys from your childhood have you kept?

None. Not that I had any at all.

Do you have any deep, dark secrets in the past that may come back to haunt you?

Yeah, the "laboratory" where I got my powers. These guys think Im dead, but I turned out more powerfull then they hoped, so Im expecting a visit one day or another.

Are you who you claim to be?

Depends who I talk to. If its someone trusted, friend or family- then no, Im not hiding anything. Anyone else- not their business, I have a new name for a reason.

Do you have any sort of criminal record?

Where do I begin... gangs, heists, petty theft, henchman to several small villains. The list goes on.

How do you view the heroes/legends of your country?

I never met any, so I cant tell how much is a lie. I'll get on that when I find out more.

Family

Who were your parents?

Mom was a nurse, and Father was (mostly) unemployed abusive drunk. Good think my mom knew first aid, couse she defenitely didnt know about common sense to move out.

Were you raised by them? If not, then why didn't they and who did raise you?

Raised? Thats a good one. I was raised by street, they cared about me more then these two.

What was their standing in the community?

None at all. They were laughinstock or subject of pity, depending how compassionate you were.

Did your family stay in one area or move around a lot?

They stayed in one place. Far as I know, they still are.

How did you get along with their parents?

I. HAVE. NO. PARENTS.

How would your parents describe you? Answer this in the voice of your mother, then in your father's.

I dont care about them enough to remember. Besides, all my father knew was how to embarass and humiliate me, so that might be answer of it all.

Do you have any siblings? If so how many and what were their names? How did you get along with each of your siblings?

No, thankfully. I doubt anyone else could survive in our home like this.

What was your birth position in the family?

Didnt you pay attention at all?

List all current knowledge of family locations, spouses, children, birth dates, schooling, and any important incidents that only you and they might remember.

Im ignoring this question.

Do you stay in touch with them or have you become estranged?

Take a guess (estranded).

Do you love or hate one member of the family in particular?

I dont care about them, but hate might be close.

Is any member of the family special to you in any way (perhaps, as a confidant, mentor, or arch-rival)?

Nope.

Are there any black (or white) sheep in the family (including you)?

The entire family is a black sheep. I might be the only one to grow out of it, actually getting a regular job and some higher goals.

Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor?

Nope. Grandpa was supposedly a war hero, but I never knew him.

If so, what did this person do to become famous or infamous?

He led a platoon during World War II and was there in Vietnam, but I dont know the details.

Do you try to live up to the reputation of your ancestor, try to live it down, or ignore it?

Not really, though he does seem like a good guy.

Do you ever want to have a family of your own someday?

I already did, but Im not against getting married again, or getting more kids. Who knows, for now Im concentrated on my first child.

Would anything change your mind on this issue and if so, what?

I dont know. Maybe finding out my future kids will grow powerfull and evil might change my mind, but I doubt it.

What type of person would be your ideal mate?

Anything that isnt like my ex-wife, she can die. An avarage, kind and not-ugly is basically all I want right now, Im not picky.

Relationships

Do you have any close friends? If so, who and what are they like?

Not really close friends, but a lot of drinking buddies and collegues from back then. Most of them are criminals or involved with some shady business though.

We grew up together, worked together and often fought alongside- a bond was sure to ensue.
