Luke appears to be a very good looking young man, with soft, slightly feminine facial features. His well maintained red hair that is constantly being changed into new styles by his label's image consultants, and he tends to dress in clothing that downplays his relatively slight build, with a focus on warm colors. When in costume, he wears a morphic molecule costume colored light blue with a thick red stripe tracing the outline of his figure. An open mask frames his face, leaving his hair and face exposed, and a belt with a circular golden buckle adorns his waist.


Growing up, Luke never really was normal. Modeling, pageantry, a brief and ultimately forgettable sitcom, his life was a long stream of being on display in one way or another. During a stint on a popular variety show aimed at the tweenage audience, his perfomances in the song numbers marked him as the stand-out performer, even if his dancing was a bit sub-par, leading to his being offered a record deal by the multimedia conglomerate that produced the show. Almost immediately, his career took off, with his first album hit gold in the first week. Shortly afterwards, he sued his mother for legal separation, having discovered that she was essentially stealing his money in large quantities. Two albums later, he was playing in sold out houses all over the world,

It was one such show that lead to his current circumstance, in fact, as halfway through a performance for a packed Schuster Auditorium, a terrible noise overwhelmed the sound system briefly. The building rocked and shuddered, as if a terrible storm had started above them, an arrhythmic hammering on the roof. As the noise grew louder, the roof began to buckle slightly under some unknown pressure, a small hole slowly widening right over the stage... a hole that admitted a strange, unmarked metal canister. As the canister fell, it began to split open, leaking an unusual gas until it came down right on top of Luke, and exploded. Breathing the gas a bit too deeply, Luke found his entire body racked with pain, as if his skin were suddenly too tight over his bones. As the pain spread through him like a wildfire, he collapsed to his knees, barely noticing the roof as it gave in, barely noticing the people screaming as debris hit the floor around him, barely noticing as the world fell away beneath him, as his clothing burst into so many rags. Eventually the pain subsided, and he opened his eyes again to discover himself kneeling over huddled and frightened fans, now only a fifth of his size, his arms locked into place to support the fallen roof debris.

The course of events flowed fairly swiftly from there, as reporters were quickly on the scene in the aftermath of the super-battle. His public manifestation making it fairly impossible to have a secret identity, Luke publicly announced his intention to become a super-hero, obtaining a morphic molecule suit and calling himself "Scraper", short for Skyscraper. At first, his record label was thrilled, thinking that it would be fantastic new publicity for him and in turn them, although their excitment has been dimished by his prioritizing actual heroics over photo ops and even concert performances, scheduled tours, and recording sessions. Things got even more strained with his recent decision to move to Freedom City, the generally accepted Superhero Capital of the world, to be closer to where the action is... and maybe join one of the premiere superteams in the world. Now, he has to deal with the issues of moving to a new home, settling down, and still fulfilling the terms of his contract while operating as (hopefully) a big-time super-hero. But honestly? He wouldn't have it any other way.

Personality & Motivation:

A confident, outgoing and friendly person, Luke enjoyed helping people even before his powers manifested, and donates a substantial amount to charity each year. While he has a tendency to get flustered when things get overly complicated or technical, he's learned that either relying on others who understand things better or powering through with sheer force of personality will usually let him get by, ideas that may get him into trouble in the world of Super-people. He thinks of people as being basically good, and is trusting often to a fault. Following his first display of power, he chose to become a hero out of a desire to help others and a feeling of responsibility, even though he worries about the potentially destructive nature of his powers. Of late, his normally sunny demeanour has taken a bit of a hit, as frustration with his label is beginning to stress him out.

Powers & Tactics:

Luke possesses the ability to ater his size to any where within a range of his normal slightly better than six feet all the way up to a current maximum of thirty-two, increasing his weight by a thousand-fold in the process. This renders him inhumanly strong and durable, able to ignore even a tank shell and lift seven hundred and twenty tons at a time, as well as granting him an aura of menace. Due to a combination of this and his concerns for the damage a thirty foot tall man can potentially do to a neighborhood, his tactics in combat tend to revolve around shutting down his opponents, either by cowing them into submission or by grabbing them and holding them to the ground.


Claustrophobia After a bad experience early in his efforts at super-heroing left him nearly buried alive, he's had a bad case of claustrophobia, causing him to panic and lash out wildly when confined

Fame Between his identity being public and his singing career, he's fairly well known and in demand.

Responsiblity Speaking of his singing career, despite his best efforts of late, he's still locked into a contract with a major label, so he has professional duties, such as tours and signings to think of.

You actually have 5 points in Feats, not 6. And for your powers you can split up the Linked ones to make it a bit easier on the eyes. Example:

Growth 12


Enhanced Feats


Impervious Toughness

It'll just make it easier as things get added to the character.
