Tryrar- Dyne- PL 10 (First Draft)

Recommended Posts

I'm posting this here to have my math checked before putting this in the character bank.

Power Level: (10) 150/150pp

Trade-Offs: -2 Attack/+2 Damage, -2 Defense/+2 Toughness

Unspent PP: 0

Gold Status: 0/30

In Brief: Scientist gets powers in freak accident with new gravity power generator

Alternate IdentitiesProfessor Don Fried:


Birthplace:Panama City, Florida:

OccupationScientist(high energy physics):

Affiliations:Has regular guest lectures at several universities, and even does work with the military

Family:Two sisters

Age:September 16, 1978

Apparent Age:30



Height:5' 11"


Eyes:light blue



As Dyne Dyne's gravitational field can warp light at zero distance above his skin, causing him to appear not so much as a person than a three-dimensional living shadow with only his eyes visible

As Don Fried Don Fried is your average-looking research scientist-if your average well respected research scientist looked about 30, that is. He's of average height, is slightly skinny, has short wavy brown hair and sky blue eyes, and slightly pale skin(though there are hints of a tan that comes from running at least a mile every few days)

Power Description: his powers manifest as dark, blurry distortions in the air as intense gravity warps the air, and even light!


Born on the sunny shores of Florida, Don Fried immediately showed that he was no ordinary child. Already speaking in complete, coherent sentences at age 3, he was tested to have an IQ in the low 200's at age 7, and later his IQ was proven to be exactly 208, well in the genius range. At age 16, he finished high school a full 2 years early, and then went on to receive his PhD in Physics in an almost unheard of 5 years. He was not done yet, though, and almost immediately set the world on fire with his ground-breaking(and controversial) paper unifying all the known theories on space, time, and gravity into a cohesive whole, for which he received a Nobel Prize for 3 years later. During this time, he also lent his talents to the military in advancing and developing new energy weapons.

Eventually, he got into the environmentalist movement with his ideas on radically different power generation techniques using his now accepted Unified Gravity Theorem, which allowed for the generation of power using the Earth's gravity field alone. With several companies interested, he eventually chose a small high-tech research firm located just on the outskirts of Freedom city called Hallirion Advanced Technology LLC, on the basis of their location and generous employment benefits and flexible schedule. With money pouring in from excited investors, a test facility was constructed just northeast of Hanover, away from most other buildings. Working for two and a half years straight, he eventually designed a truly revolutionary new power generator. However, with investors eager for results, the company eventually decided to rush the production of the generator to the test stage. Dreaming of almost unlimited profit, on day in September(on Don's 30th birthday, in fact) HAT LLC threw the switch on the Graviton Dual Spatial Field Power Generator(called the Big Betty by those working on it, due to it's massive size). It was then that rushing the generator to the test stage proved to be a grave mistake...

Later, forensic reconstruction showed that a flaw in the building of the power generator, along with overlooked and outright cut safety features, allowed the dual opposing gravitic fields to begin a N-space distortion, which caused a gravitic eddy to form, which then degenerated into a full-on graviton vortex. Only the quick thinking of Professor Don, and the swift evacuation of the facility, prevented any loss of life, and only by Don managing to initiate a N-space reversion along dimensional lines(causing the fields to reverse polarity, expending their force outward instead of inward) prevented the vortex from collapsing into an outright unstable black hole, which would have destroyed all of Freedom City(and likely most of New Jersey, New York, and major parts of New England as well) before dissipating. The resulting energy release, however, did destroy the entire facility, and actually broke windows for miles around.When the smoke and dust cleared, though, Don was nowhere to be found, as he had stayed behind to initiate the reversion and check that the facility was clear before getting out. Frantic search and rescue efforts of the rubble located Don's twisted, bleeding, broken body amid the wreckage. While hardly in very good shape, he was miraculously alive.

After spending a year in the hospital, Don quietly retired from the public life for a while to his modest mansion he owned in North Bay. during the intervening months, he slowly discovered that being in the middle of a N-space reversion, coupled with the powerful gravitic fields present, had somehow converged to give him strange powers to control gravity. Being a good, honest, and generally patriotic guy, he knew what he had to do with his newfound gift; Fight Crime! and so, he became the newest superhero on the block, the man known as Dyne.

Personality & Motivation:Don is generally a very cheery, upbeat person, though not above being a little sarcastic(especially to people who actually manage to annoy him, usually by demonstrating acute stupidity). He's also pretty patriotic, and has offered his services to the military in the past, and would definitely be the first in line to volunteer if the country was ever attacked. With his older sister becoming a cop, he also views criminals as scum, and is happy to do his part in increasing the prison population(by catching criminals, of course).

Powers & Tactics: will usually simply either use his gravity powers to vastly increase a criminal's mass to the point where they can't move, or nullify gravity so that they fly up into the air and then come crashing back down. On particularly tough enemies, however, he'll hit them with powerful focused blasts of gravitons, or on huge groups, hit them with a wide reaching eruption of graviton waves. occasionally, he'll use the surroundings by throwing objects using a multi-directional gravitational field.


Famous:(one of the youngest to ever win the Nobel Prize for Physics with his paper that cohesively unifies all the known theories on gravity and space-time into one)

Responsibility:(he takes his research into using exotic energy and gravity to power the world seriously, as well as his various commitments to the military in his advancements of high-energy weapons for defense of the nation)
