Description: The most distinguishing feature about him is his goat legs and horns protruding from his forehead. The legs are covered in black goat fur and end in hooves. The horns are black and quite large, though the curl up on the side of his head, like ram tusks. His skin is brown. His hair is thick, but short. His human body shape is very muscular with broad shoulders. Despite having hair, eyebrows and very hairy legs, there is no one single bit of hair on his body elsewhere.

Though he doesn't look like that all of the time. He possesses the ability to turn into attractive humanoid forms. He doesn't have a favorite, but the one people most know him as is his what he looks like sans goat legs and horns.

Power Descriptions: He really doesn't have any show outward powers. Though his most blatant powers are his ability to run really fast and his horns. The rest are just divine nature.

History: Back in the land of time unsurmountable, gods roamed the land. People now know them as Zeus and Ares, Hades and Hermes, on and on. Though ΗÏων was not a god, he was not mortal either. He was one of their many creations. Being a satyr didn't have much responsibility. Sure you had to go to parties Dionysus threw, but that really wasn't a chore at all. ΗÏων's satyr buddies and he had the same interests: living life to the fullest no matter what. But ΗÏων's satyr buddies also had a nickname for him, "goddess chaser". He'd had relations with Tyche before. That alone set him apart from his normal satyr buddies. But Tyche's favor was that of Lady Luck. She eventually moved on and so did ΗÏων. Though another caught his eye. Sure he'd cavort with the nymphs of the land as was pretty much his nature to do, but he'd always talk about his one true love, Aphrodite. He'd always talked about his love for the goddess in more than a way that was just lewd nymph jokes. He thought he could actually be something more to her than that. When Dionysus heard this he laughed his ass off and told him he'd put in a good word for ΗÏων. Aphrodite got wind of this and was amused at the thought. She wanted something new to play with anyway. The next bash Dionysus threw, Aphrodite was there. She was amused by the antics, but she was there for a reason. She saw her target and approached him. ΗÏων was with his satyr buddies and didn't see the goddess sneak up behind him. She held him and whispered in his ear and instantly he knew it was her. It too all of his fortitude to not melt on the spot, but he did hold together. She offered him one chance to prove himself to her. She kept ΗÏων for a while. He tried to do everything the goddess wanted. She was impressed by his effort too. Though having Aphrodite for a lover has it's challenges. People saw her AND him as a prize. On that saw him as a prize was the goddess of temptation, Ate. She presented herself to him several times, each time his will lurching to remember Aphrodite, his true love. The poor satyr's will finally broke one day. And it would be just in time for Aphrodite to catch him in the act. Aphrodite was perturbed. She leaned in on his dalliance and whispered the last four words he would hear for a while, "You have failed me." Even her scorn sounded lovely to him. He was whisked away to Athens to sit in a square as a statue. Before he lost conciousness he saw the rest of his satyr buddies as statues too. A final punishment from Aphrodite.

ΗÏων didn't technically lose conciousness. it was minimally there. His mental senses lacked definition, but they were there. Millenia after millenia past as his weak thought absorbed everything it could.the semi-conscious thought of everyone around him. Though sadly he could not feel his brothers in arms. In 2011, the curse broke for him. Aphrodite wanted something to play with again. He was in modern day Athens, now holding up a fountain. Steeping from under it he saw that his satyr buddies were still statues. Not only that, people pointed and stared at the six and a half foot beast in horror. He tried to speak to them but they would not listen! They called for a hero, any hero. Luckily Daedalus happened to be in Athens at that point. After a small tussle and a lengthy explanation, he took ΗÏων far, far away from Athens to Freedom City. They would be much more accepting of him there. He said he would help ΗÏων try to free his friends, but in the mean time he would have to lay low. Daedalus called someone and set up a meeting. Someone named Harrier.

Personality & Motivation: Bombastic. Loud. Never a dull moment for him. He's a fun-loving type. He wants everyone else to have a good time too! So he'll go out of his way to make sure they do. He won't put them in danger's way to do so, but anything short of that. He's also has a chivalric attitude. He wants to protect people as much as he wants to have fun. Also, his word is his bond. He's a hero because he feels it is his duty to protect the people from harm.

Powers & Tactics: When he has to fight, he will assume his natural form. Possessing horns and speed unparalleled by normal mortals, he charges into the fray. He has no fear of death, so he can charge fool-hardy into anything really. That along with his divine gift of luck from his former lover makes things much easier to bash heads.


Complications:

Creature!: In his normal form, some might not accept him.

Creature of Habit: Though he is a creature made for the express purpose of "having masculine fun". It's hard to deny instincts.

Enemy (Aphrodite and friends): Aphrodite's not one to forgive easily (see poor Haephesteus), ΗÏων's life will be that much more interesting here. While she does not directly get involved 95% of the time, she does have minions in the mortal realm.

Mechanically, everything checks out, except that you have 1PP left to spend.

As far as the backstory goes, I have two concerns:

First, how exactly was his curse broken?

Second...why exactly did Aphrodite curse him and his friends in the first place? I wasn't really clear on that. It sounded like she cursed them because she wasn't satisfied with your character as a lover. Which, frankly, makes my skin crawl. As a general rule, we try to avoid origin stories which sound, for lack of a better term..."rapey."

Chivalry: this is the strongest one he feels though.

This is not an acceptable Complication description. Please revise it so that it actually, y'know, describes the Complication.

Creature of Habit: Though he is a creature made for the express purpose of "having masculine fun". It's hard to deny instincts.

Emotions: He's partially a living personification of a few. They're much stronger when they flow through him than a normal mortal.

Aren't these two Complications basically the same thing? He's a creature of passion (lust and otherwise), so it's more difficult for him to resist things like Emotion Control. Why list it twice?
