Starshot usually wears a battered military jacket, carries a big gun, and wears a helmet that can extend over his whole face. His left hand is clearly cybernetic, black metal and green lights. If he shows his face, he is handsome man with piercing light blue eyes and a scar down his left side. He is in excellent shape (partially due to cybernetic implants). Under his jacket and clothes he also has a considerable amount of scar tissue on his left arm and left side of his torso.  




As a capable young man, Starshot served in the German Army in World War 2, although horrified by the experience. He ended up on a suicide mission in the Alps with his no-hoper squad. Ambushed by British commandoes, the firefight was brought to a close by Zaul Zeno. The alien was a galactic collector, expert in biology and cybernetics. Firing into the battle, he killed most of the combatants but for Oskar, whom he collected as a prize.


The next several decades, Oskar (rebuilt by Zeno) served on his ship as a big game hunter. Whilst Zeno was not a cruel man (just greedy and amoral), Oskar would have escaped if it was not for the explosives wired to his heart.


Then Zaul disappeared. Left with money, a Starship, and a profession, Starshot took over as captain, removed the explosives in his heart (he hopes), and set off… 


Personality & Motivation:


Oskar is a complex man, who enjoys his profession but is still scarred (physically and emotionally) by WW2. He had a grey and shadowy existence as Zaul Zeno’s right hand man.


Oskar enjoys drink, gambling, and risk, but can also become grim and maudlin at times, lost in recollections.


He partially travels for adventure and interest, but always has an eye out to undo the wrongs he had done, and is, at heart, a man of people.  


Powers & Tactics:
Due to genetic modification and cybernetics, Starshot is in peak physical condition and is immune to many harsh environments. His left hand is detachable and is equipped with inbuilt tools which can be used as weapons (like drills, clubs, or blades) as well as having exceptional grip.


Starshot has a high tech helmet that has a range of sensory enhancements.


Starshot uses his gun “Trigger”, which has a rudimentary and somewhat stupid AI system. Zaul’s little joke. Whilst Starshot finds his weapon irritating, it is also very powerful.


Starshot is a skilled marksman and hunter. He tends to fight as such, sneaking around and sniping his targets.



Power Descriptions:
Trigger fires phased plasma, which passes through barriers until reaching its correct distance. This is bright and loud, a burning yellow colour. It also fires a charged “Net” that ensnares the target (loaded under the main rifle).




War Trauma: Starshot reacts very negatively to war, and particular Nazi memorabilia. He will have flashbacks, becoming frozen, or violent.


Dummy Gun: Trigger, his rifle, has a stupid AI and can speak out inappropriately (This can be played by the GM). It’s a glitch, irritating AI.


Bad: In many corners of the galaxy, Starshot has a bad reputation, having worked for Zaul Zeno for so many years.


Captain: Any guest on his ship is under his protection.


Allergy: Starshots genetic alteration have made him allergic to several medicines, including penicillin.
