Daisuke Hayashi is a Japanese man who appears to be... well, in his mid-sixties. Exactly what he is, in other words. He is, however, extremely fit, and it shows. He's quite fatherly in his looks and expressions most of the time, and tends to wear a business suit or traditional Japanese clothing. If he's expecting trouble, he carries a katana at his side, but this isn't often nowadays.

Power Descriptions:

None. Daisuke Hayashi is simply a man. An extremely fit, and very skilled man.


Daisuke was born into the Yakuza alongisde Takeshi, his twin brother. His father was fairly high-up in the Midori-gumi, one of the medium-sized syndicates, and he taught Daisuke and Takeshi all that he knew about leadership in the Yakuza, and the physical skills needed as well. Both siblings learnt quickly, and when they became old enough, joined the syndicate. While there was a degree of family connections involved with their rise, the fact of the matter is that Daisuke and Takeshi were both very skilled, and worked very well as a team. And along the way, Daisuke married Noriko Akiyama. In truth, things went very well for Daisuke in the early years, with his brother at his side, a beautiful wife (who soon bore him a daughter, Chiyoko Hayashi).

Then, five years after Chiyoko was born, Noriko was killed in an attack by Overthrow, while she was visiting a friend in Paris.

Daisuke mourned. Then he threw himself into rising up the ranks. Oh, he did it fairly, but his goal became to become the leader of the Midori-gumi. And have the resources to take his own revenge on Overthrow. And it paid off- by the time he was 54, Daisuke Hayashi was leader of the Midori-gumi. It would be a bitter victory. His daughter had become a physics student at Oxford, and during a visit to a particle accelerator there, she was caught in... an accident. The experience didn't kill her, but she was changed, now wielding cosmic energies, and she felt she needed to find out more about her new powers, and to find a purpose for having them. Daisuke let her go- he wouldn't have been able to stop her anyway, and he agreed with her on both counts.

In the past ten years, the aging man has turned his attention to the Midori-gumi. He has continued his work in bringing the syndicate into the modern age, and has kept an eye out for ways to hinder Overthrow. Both these activities have lead him to start expanding his organisation into Freedom City, with the Yakuza starting to muscle in to the protection business.

Personality & Motivation:

Daisuke is a fatherly old man with a hard edge that has become more apparent over time. First and foremost, however, he's a reasonable man. No, really- he doesn't hold grudges if you don't make it personal (if you, say, kill his wife, on the other hand...), always honors his part of a bargain, and most importantly to potential employees, doesn't kill people over failure. He holds no hatred for superheroes, and will often give them a tip-off if he receives information about 'distasteful activities'. That said, he's become more... ruthless since his daughter disappeared.

Powers & Tactics:

In combat, Daisuke uses his katana, only resorting to his gun if he has to. He tends to coordinate attacks, but in personal combat, it's quite apparent that 65 years has done little to decrease his fitness.

Character Name: Tachyon

Power Level: 10 (150/150PP)

Trade-Offs: None

Unspent Power Points: 0

Progress To Bronze Status: 0/30

In Brief: Japanese COSMIC AVATAR

Alternate Identity: Chiyoko Hayashi

Identity: Public

Birthplace: Tokyo, Japan

Occupation: Superhero

Affiliations: Lor Republic (allied a few times)

Family: Daisuke Hayashi, leader of the Midori-gumi syndicate, is her father. Her mother was killed in an attack by Overthrow.


Age: 30 (DOB: 1982)

Apparent Age: 20

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Japanese

Height: 5'2"

Weight: 110 lb

Eyes: Golden irises that glow when she's using a large amount of power.

Hair: Silver- again, it appears to shine when she's using a large amount of power.


Chiyoko was a fairly young-looking Japanese woman, of about 23 years of age, with black hair, olive eyes, and a fair complexion. She had a fairly traditional figure, in fact, fairly lightweight and quite short.

Nowadays, she looks almost the same, except her eyes are golden and her hair silver, both as a result of the accident that granted her her powers. While pretty, she isn't the most beautiful woman around, but she is very graceful, every movement she makes deliberate and considered.

Power Descriptions:

Tachyon's powers are all focused around cosmic energies. In practical terms, she can do a variety of things with them, and all manifest as glowing energy of silver and gold. She can project blasts of energy, form it into a sword (which she prefers to manifest as a katana), heal, corrode, and fly fast enough to travel between starts in hours or even minutes.


Chiyoko was born to Daisuke Hayashi, then a high-ranking member of the Midori-gumi syndicate of the Yakuza. Her childhood was... mixed. Daisuke loved her and her mother, but was often absent. And then her mother was killed when she was just five years old, in a terrorist attack on Paris by Overthrow.

Daisuke grew even more distant after that, throwing himself on a quest for revenge as he climbed up the ladder of the syndicate. He still tried to involve himself... a bit... but to be honest, Daisuke didn't think he was a suitable parent. Her uncle, Takeshi, spent more time with her. And Daisuke made sure she was looked after as well, employing a nanny to help raise her. The socialisation that came with starting school also helped her a great deal, and it was there that she started developing a passion for physics. A combination of hard work, study, and funds from her father eventually got her into Oxford University, where she helped with a few practical experiments. Until one went wrong, and changed her life forever. While she was helping test a particle accelerator, the accelerator suddenly vastly overshot first its safe limit, then what was supposed to be the maximum possible output. And then it exploded, with Chiyoko caught in the blast radius. When the smoke cleared, her hair and eyes had both changed color, and she was staring wide-eyed at the cosmic energy surrounding her hands. In the aftermath, an investigation on the cause of the accident drew no satisfactory conclusions- it could have been deliberate sabotage, but there simply wasn't enough evidence left.

In the meantime, Chiyoko did a little experimentation with her powers, discovering most of them fairly quickly (the light-speed travel through accidentally making her way to Pluto when testing her flight). Ultimately, she decided that she needed to go on... a walkabout to find herself. Except on a much larger scale. So, a month after she gained her powers... Chiyoko left Earth.

The past ten years have been interesting for Chiyoko. She's seen a large portion of the galaxy (although she's the first to admit she's not seen everything- she hasn't gone into Grue space, for one thing), she's had numerous adventures, and she's forged some ties among the Lor. Now... now she's ready to return to Earth.

Personality & Motivation:

Powers & Tactics:

Tachyon has a varied fighting style. She uses her powers to their full extent, switching to whichever use of her powers is most suited to the current situation, but shows a slight preference towards fighting up close and from the ground, using her energy sword to attack opponents.


My Father is a Yakuza Oyabun: Chiyoko's father, Daisuke, isn't just a crime boss, he's a major one. While Chiyoko will not work for Daisuke, she also won't testify against him unless Daisuke goes so far as to kill innocents.

Notes: Here's the sheet for Tachyon. She'll be going up as soon as I get Bronze status, so let's work out her backstory beforehand.

I make no apologies, her sheet's almost a copy of Trollthumper's Cosmic Avatar build. I changed a few things because a) a cosmic avatar should be immortal dammit and B) changed her skills to reflect her former occupation as a student of SCIENCE. Also, to add Luck, because it's practically required hereabouts. :P
