Description: Kevin is a broad-shouldered young man with bright red hair, cut short. He looks a lot like the football center that he is, playing on the first-string team for Freedom College, ever since his time as a freshman. Teeth that are just a little out of line keep him from being called handsome, but his ready smile and wholesome physique still get him a fair share of attention from the ladies of Freedom College.

Background/Origin: It was a late night in April, and Kevin Malone was returning from drinking with a few of his friends. The guys had gone out to enjoy the last weekend before finals started and they'd have to buckle down to keep eligible for their scholarships. It was one in the morning, and for a change, the streets were fairly quiet. Darren decided to run across the road for some reason or another and didn't look both ways. The car seemed to come out of nowhere, making a tight turn straight into Darren. Darren must have bounced 20 feet off of the car, falling into the road in front of it. The car sped off, not bothering to see who he just hit.

His friends stood there in shock, and Kevin wasn't much better. As he ran towards Darren, guilt for letting Darren drink so much and anger at the driver and the desire that this had never happened boiled together. He was the first to see Darren, and he looked hopeless - ribs exposed, and his chest wasn't moving.

Time seemed to slow up for Kevin, and he will remember what happened next for the rest of his life. He reached out to Darren, and he could feel Darren's injuries like phantom pains in himself. Darren was dying, and all he could think was "No...."

All of a sudden, the pain faded, and he thought for a moment that Darren had died, but as he stopped in front of Darren, he could see his ribs unbreaking and going back into his body, and Darren started to breathe again. His friends caught up behind him, not having seen what he had done. Darren was still in real bad shape, but Kevin knew he'd live through it. Kevin was drained and couldn't do anything more for Darren. In a way, he knows that's a good thing - if people saw Darren healing up like that, who knows what they'd think... heck, Darren might even think that he was the one with powers, which wouldn't be too safe. As Darren was driven off to the hospital and Kevin gave his statement to the cops on the hit and run, he was thinking all the while: Where did this come from? He'd seen people hurt at football practice, but it was nothing like that.

Of course, the inevitable question came up. Could he heal his own injuries? That test left a small scar on the back of one of his arms, and a profound distaste for cutting himself.

Even so, he has been trying to figure out what the right thing is to do with his power. He still hasn't figured out that when he's trying to help someone out with homework or lifting and they suddenly "get it" that he's the cause; it doesn't feel the same way to him. If he finds other superpowered individuals to work with, that'll give him a much greater sense of peace. He isn't alone, and he can help them do good rather than trying to cure the world by himself. Unconsciously, he would rather work with people than take the credit himself.

History:

Kevin Malone is the oldest son of Jake Malone, a former NFL quarterback for the Houston Oilers. Kevin grew up in Texas, and it was a foregone conclusion that he'd become a football player. He played a few different positions after it became clear that he wouldn't make a great quarterback (although he could throw the ball alright, he tended to get intercepted a little too often). Eventually, he settled down as an offensive lineman and center. His dad would sometimes come by and help out the coach, but Jake made sure that Kevin didn't get any special treatment because he was Jake's son.

There was no need to worry about that, though. Kevin was blessed with the sort of likeable personality that comes when you have nothing to prove to anyone. Rather than trying to be the star, he helped everyone on his team play better, and his proudest moment in his high school career was when he was made captain of his team. Upon graduation, he got a full scholarship to Freedom College and took it quickly. After all, he isn't the only Malone, and his dad has to think about college for the other kids as well.

* Kevin has an older sister, and/or younger siblings. If it's an older sister, she might resent him because their father would have ignored her when he came around. He could have any sort of relationship with younger siblings.

* Kevin's major is business administration. It gives him something to do if he isn't drafted or after he retires.

* Kevin's father was drafted and served a tour in Vietnam. While it wasn't fun, he did sometimes tell stories about it, mostly of how the high-up brass would screw things up and it was up to the sergeants to make sense of it. If there's someone else who wants the title of "team leader" eventually, Kevin'll draw on this and just let the guy lead while he plays the role of sergeant. He doesn't like arguing within the team; he'd rather save his aggression for those they have to fight. He also might get some ranks in Knowledge (tactics) later, based on re-remembering what his father said and studying on his own.

* Kevin is, overall, a fairly ordinary college student. He's only 19, but he drinks occasionally at parties. He doesn't get smashed, which puts him a leg up over some of his teammates. Whatever happened to him did strengthen him slightly, but no more than a point or two in Strength and/or Constitution. It's not enough to be really noticeable, and he'd probably just attribute it to working out and the end parts of puberty (which for all he knows might be the case). He has gotten Bs in most of his classes, in part due to not applying himself. He does great in team projects, as might be expected, and they help to keep his grades up. He's not even close to losing his scholarship, so he's satisfied with where he's at, even though he could do better.

* Freedom City is really the big city for him, and while he sometimes jokes about being the hayseed up north, he does consider himself less cultured than most of the other folks he meets and tries not to let on how awed he is by some of the smaller things, such as ethnic restaurants open till 3 in the morning. Of course, he still has a lot of Texas pride, which can be seen in his Longhorn belt buckle (which he'll still wear with his costume until he realizes that's dumb) and his praise of the Tex-Mex cuisine. Example: "You may make a great pizza, but y'all have no clue how to make a good burrito." (Though that wouldn't be said to the person who made it; he's too polite for that)

alright this one looks good I've got a couple questions about his back story: First did he go to Freedom College because of the scholarship or because of all the heroes flying around here? I ask cause I figure with his ability he probably got offers from all over the country. Second, does he use his powers on the field or is he too honorable for that?

also anything you wanted to talk over with the refs can be PM'd to me or one of the other character judges.

outside of that you're approved.

The original reason to come to Freedom City was the scholarship. There was also an element of wanting to get away from home. Kevin had lived in Texas his whole life, and this was a good opportunity to see what it's like elsewhere. The whole "Freedom City" vibe, with all of the heroes around, certainly didn't make his decision more difficult. After all, superheroics are cool.

So far, when he's used the Boost part of his alternate power, it's been subconsciously. After all, it doesn't have a magic glowy ray (the Subtle), and its effect isn't obviously like with Healing. So while he might be rooting for the wide receiver to dodge the tackle (and Boost him), he wouldn't know that he was doing it. To the other players, it feels like every once in a while, they're in the zone, and can do much better at dodging tackles or blowing past the linebackers to get a sack. When he does figure out what he's doing, will he still do it? That's a harder question. I think he'd try not to, but it's awfully tempting if the game's close. That could make for an interesting non-combat story arc.

The original reason to come to Freedom City was the scholarship. There was also an element of wanting to get away from home. Kevin had lived in Texas his whole life, and this was a good opportunity to see what it's like elsewhere. The whole "Freedom City" vibe, with all of the heroes around, certainly didn't make his decision more difficult. After all, superheroics are cool.

So far, when he's used the Boost part of his alternate power, it's been subconsciously. After all, it doesn't have a magic glowy ray (the Subtle), and its effect isn't obviously like with Healing. So while he might be rooting for the wide receiver to dodge the tackle (and Boost him), he wouldn't know that he was doing it. To the other players, it feels like every once in a while, they're in the zone, and can do much better at dodging tackles or blowing past the linebackers to get a sack. When he does figure out what he's doing, will he still do it? That's a harder question. I think he'd try not to, but it's awfully tempting if the game's close. That could make for an interesting non-combat story arc.

Name: Kevin Malone

Code Name: Hub

Power Level: 10 (154/160 Points)

Tradeoffs: +2 attack, -2 save DC (unarmed only)

Unspent PPs: 6

Age: 21

Gender: Male

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 190 lbs.

Eyes: Green

Hair: Red

Description: Kevin is a broad-shouldered young man with bright red hair, cut short. He looks a lot like the football center that he is, playing on the first-string team for Freedom College, ever since his time as a freshman. Teeth that are just a little out of line keep him from being called handsome, but his ready smile and wholesome physique still get him a fair share of attention from the ladies of Freedom College.

Background/Origin: It was a late night in April, and Kevin Malone was returning from drinking with a few of his friends. The guys had gone out to enjoy the last weekend before finals started and they'd have to buckle down to keep eligible for their scholarships. It was one in the morning, and for a change, the streets were fairly quiet. Darren decided to run across the road for some reason or another and didn't look both ways. The car seemed to come out of nowhere, making a tight turn straight into Darren. Darren must have bounced 20 feet off of the car, falling into the road in front of it. The car sped off, not bothering to see who he just hit.

His friends stood there in shock, and Kevin wasn't much better. As he ran towards Darren, guilt for letting Darren drink so much and anger at the driver and the desire that this had never happened boiled together. He was the first to see Darren, and he looked hopeless - ribs exposed, and his chest wasn't moving.

Time seemed to slow up for Kevin, and he will remember what happened next for the rest of his life. He reached out to Darren, and he could feel Darren's injuries like phantom pains in himself. Darren was dying, and all he could think was "No...."

All of a sudden, the pain faded, and he thought for a moment that Darren had died, but as he stopped in front of Darren, he could see his ribs unbreaking and going back into his body, and Darren started to breathe again. His friends caught up behind him, not having seen what he had done. Darren was still in real bad shape, but Kevin knew he'd live through it. Kevin was drained and couldn't do anything more for Darren. In a way, he knows that's a good thing - if people saw Darren healing up like that, who knows what they'd think... heck, Darren might even think that he was the one with powers, which wouldn't be too safe. As Darren was driven off to the hospital and Kevin gave his statement to the cops on the hit and run, he was thinking all the while: Where did this come from? He'd seen people hurt at football practice, but it was nothing like that.

Of course, the inevitable question came up. Could he heal his own injuries? That test left a small scar on the back of one of his arms, and a profound distaste for cutting himself.

Even so, he has been trying to figure out what the right thing is to do with his power. He still hasn't figured out that when he's trying to help someone out with homework or lifting and they suddenly "get it" that he's the cause; it doesn't feel the same way to him. If he finds other superpowered individuals to work with, that'll give him a much greater sense of peace. He isn't alone, and he can help them do good rather than trying to cure the world by himself. Unconsciously, he would rather work with people than take the credit himself.

History:

Kevin Malone is the oldest son of Jake Malone, a former NFL quarterback for the Houston Oilers. Kevin grew up in Texas, and it was a foregone conclusion that he'd become a football player. He played a few different positions after it became clear that he wouldn't make a great quarterback (although he could throw the ball alright, he tended to get intercepted a little too often). Eventually, he settled down as an offensive lineman and center. His dad would sometimes come by and help out the coach, but Jake made sure that Kevin didn't get any special treatment because he was Jake's son.

There was no need to worry about that, though. Kevin was blessed with the sort of likeable personality that comes when you have nothing to prove to anyone. Rather than trying to be the star, he helped everyone on his team play better, and his proudest moment in his high school career was when he was made captain of his team. Upon graduation, he got a full scholarship to Freedom College and took it quickly. After all, he isn't the only Malone, and his dad has to think about college for the other kids as well.

* Kevin has an older sister, and/or younger siblings. If it's an older sister, she might resent him because their father would have ignored her when he came around. He could have any sort of relationship with younger siblings.

* Kevin's major is business administration. It gives him something to do if he isn't drafted or after he retires.

* Kevin's father was drafted and served a tour in Vietnam. While it wasn't fun, he did sometimes tell stories about it, mostly of how the high-up brass would screw things up and it was up to the sergeants to make sense of it. If there's someone else who wants the title of "team leader" eventually, Kevin'll draw on this and just let the guy lead while he plays the role of sergeant. He doesn't like arguing within the team; he'd rather save his aggression for those they have to fight. He also might get some ranks in Knowledge (tactics) later, based on re-remembering what his father said and studying on his own.

* Kevin is, overall, a fairly ordinary college student. He's only 19, but he drinks occasionally at parties. He doesn't get smashed, which puts him a leg up over some of his teammates. Whatever happened to him did strengthen him slightly, but no more than a point or two in Strength and/or Constitution. It's not enough to be really noticeable, and he'd probably just attribute it to working out and the end parts of puberty (which for all he knows might be the case). He has gotten Bs in most of his classes, in part due to not applying himself. He does great in team projects, as might be expected, and they help to keep his grades up. He's not even close to losing his scholarship, so he's satisfied with where he's at, even though he could do better.

* Freedom City is really the big city for him, and while he sometimes jokes about being the hayseed up north, he does consider himself less cultured than most of the other folks he meets and tries not to let on how awed he is by some of the smaller things, such as ethnic restaurants open till 3 in the morning. Of course, he still has a lot of Texas pride, which can be seen in his Longhorn belt buckle (which he'll still wear with his costume until he realizes that's dumb) and his praise of the Tex-Mex cuisine. Example: "You may make a great pizza, but y'all have no clue how to make a good burrito." (Though that wouldn't be said to the person who made it; he's too polite for that)

Your math was incorrect in several places. I corrected it, and cleaned up some of the formatting to make the sheet easier to read. I'll hold off on any approval until you've had a chance to go over it again and decide if you want to change anything.

If you're interested, I've also got several suggestions on how to "optimize" this build.

Sorry for the math errors. I wish I knew what they were, but I don't see a way to view what I submitted. I suspect one of them was due to miscounting the cost of the Boost.

I'm happy with him as submitted and amended.

You had been spending more points on Abilities and Skills than was noted, and your total skill bonuses were incorrect. Like I said, they were all arithmetic errors, and now the math on the sheet is perfect.

If you're happy, then I'm happy. APPROVED
