Coby Doyle
PL 11
180 pp

Background

Coby grew up in a fairly typical family trying to survive the nomadic raiders, self styled outlaws on hover bikes, and harsh environment of the American west. They fought and scavenged to get by day to day. Sometimes they went for days just hiding out from raiders who attacked them earlier. Most families didn't have bounties on their head larger than the income of some weapon makers though. The Doyle family was a long line of powerful psionics who were mostly hunted down and killed. A few remained scattered, but for the most part all Coby knew about was his parents Jack and Annie and his three sisters Stephanie, Isabelle, and Jane.

They generally traveled town to town, would stay for a little, and move on once people caught on they were Mind Melters. "We could always make them accept us, but we would just prove them right.", Jack would always tell Coby when Coby inquired about making everyone like them. Sometimes a town would send bounty hunters after the family. Some smaller towns pooled there money and made a big pool for whoever killed the Doyle family. No one could quite remember what the family looked like though. When the family left a town, the town knew some Mind Melters with the last name Doyle had been in town, but the faces and composition were just a blur to all of them.

The heat on the family got so bad that they were forced to head to the midwest. Annie and Jack knew it was dangerous, but the west was also getting quite dangerous. Going into Vampire territory wasn't an option either. If they could make it to south Missouri they might find a home. The journey would be dangerous though. To get there they would need to cross some territory controlled by Coalition State allies. The family came together and all agreed it was worth it. They hopped on their motorcyles and drove as fast as they could. They never made it.

Partly through he Northern Gun territory they were surprised by some psi-stalkers sent by the Coalition States to sweep their allies territory. Jack and Annie fought hard, but snipers took them out with highly explosive rounds that penetrated their psionic barriers. Stephanie and Isabelle tried to hold off the psi-stalkers, but were too weak. Coby grew enraged at the slaughter of his family and sent out a blast into the minds of the attackers that killed them all. More were on their way though, so Coby took his younger sister Jane on his bike and rode away as quickly as he could.

There was a family Coby knew about that lost a daughter while traveling named Katie when she was 2 years old. They had money and were desperate. While he hated to do it, Coby took his sister to the families large estate. It was a simple mental trick to convince the family Jane was Katie. Jane begged Coby to stay, but he had other plans. For the next couple years, he kept in touch with Jane through telepathy. She was having a good life. Coby not so much. His day to day struggle was finding parts to repair his bike, keep his mental concealment up so psi-stalkers didn't detect him, and to find any weakness he could that would bring down the Coalition States.

Complications
Enemy: Coalition states will kill him on sight if they recognize him as a Mind Melter. They are also after his family line in an attempt to wipe them out.

Hatred: He will do anything needed to bring down the Coalition States and their leaders.

Prejudice: If people find out he is a Mind Melter he is subject to the fear and scorn of other people.

Secret: No one knows his sister is living with the Reynolds family out west as a long lost daughter. Revealing this will put her in danger.

Equipment
Motorcycle(Strength 15, speed 5, toughness 8, Feature: Smoke Screen), Undercover Light Armor(Protection 4, subtle)

Personality

Coby is a tough and rugged survivor. He can get along fine with others, but is secretive and a little shady. One moment he is patting someone on the back and the next moment the guy is running into a Coalition State bar and yelling "I am a Mind Melter!". He is determined to bring down the Coalition States and get revenge for his family. To this end, he will disregard his reservations against using his powers to hurt others and even his own life if it means the Coalition States will fall. He does have a soft spot for families on the run and will actively use his powers to help them evade capture. Most other times he is not the most helpful person.

Build Notes

As he is, he seems a little too powerful to me. I am thinking of cutting back on his powers, but I am torn because the Mind Melter is supposed to be an extremely powerful psionic. A few of the AE's under mental powers are for rp purposes such as telepathy, memory alteration, and illusion. To hide his powers, he has trained his mind to block his powerful energy so long as he doesn't use them. Someone powerful enough can sense the faint energies his powers give off while concealed.

Nathan Natas

Background:

Nathan was born in the shadow dimension to the extremely wealthy and influential life essence broker Lucy Natas. More precisely, he was created from the shadows by her force of will. The Natas family goes back eons as life essence brokers and has done quite well at the business. Some more primitive dimensions called the brokers in the family names like Satan or the Devil. The more "enlightened" dimensions call them sellers of joy, luck, bliss, and any number of other desirable states. Life essence trade is not without it's perils though. It makes some fabulously wealthy and others get easily squashed by their competitors, literally. The Natas are perhaps the most successful traders and can afford the best shadow servants to protect them. As they age, they also gain the ability to teleport anywhere no matter the dimension, which has helped them stay alive in the cut throat business.

From birth, Nathan had several shadow guards assigned to him. It was there assignment to see he was safe at all times and to do his will. Over the course of a year they became a part of him. Knowing her son was protected was only one issue. Lucy's enemies would like to see Nathan dead and unable to join the family business. While it is true that Lucy had many children, one less broker might give competitors an edge. To keep Nathan hidden until he came of age, Lucy bought a dimensional traveling ship and staffed it with the finest robotic tutors, chefs, and anything Nathan might need. The only thing they could not do is provide friendship.

The next several years of his life were spent being raised by robots. He would wake in the morning to a robotic nanny. A robotic chef would sit with him while he ate breakfast. His tutor and workout instructor were cold, impersonal robots. The ship itself was programmed to jump to an arbitrary dimension every 24 hours and Nathan was never allowed to leave the ship. He would see such amazing sights outside the windows, but never be able to visit or experience them. Lucy always promised to visit, but the Shadow people are not known for their commitment to family, especially the Natas Shadow's.

When Nathan was old enough to reason he tried to convince his mother through communication buoys, robotic couriers, and other impersonal means to let him at least off the ship for a couple hours. He never got a reply. The robotic messengers never returned and he was left to his own devices on the ship. His only friends were the servant's who had been with him since birth. They would talk for days on end about the joys of one day seeing the multiverse as brokers and the fabulous wealth they would inherit. Deep down though, Nathan did not want any of it. He just wanted to be another creature going from dimension to dimension reporting on the sights and experiencing the action. His shadow servants tried to reason with him, but it just turned into a big argument that never got resolved. In the end, they knew whatever Nathan decided, they were stuck with.

After one dimensional jump when Nathan was entering his teens, his ship was spotted by one of the Natas family rivals. Word quickly spread and in hours the ship was surrounded. The ships defenses fought off most attackers and the ones that got through were put down by Nathan's mother who was at the ship in seconds. She resolved to put Nathan in an even safer place for the next few years. The Natas family had a hideaway protected by magical and technological means that existed in it's own pocket dimension only Natas family could get to. Nathan begged and pleaded with his mother not to be hid away.

After much pleading, Lucy finally relented. She agreed to let Nathan attend a school with other children in a dimension rarely visited by life essence brokers. She did not send him alone though. On top of the shadow servants, she contracted some mercenaries who could keep watch on him at all times from an alternate dimension. In exchange, Nathan had to promise to not be careless and get too close to anyone. A life essence broker did not have close friends.

Complications
Hunted(Rival Life Essence Collectors): Rivals of his mother would like nothing better than to see him out of the way. Killing him would cause a war they would never win, so instead they want to kidnap him and use him as leverage against his mother.

Extremely Protective Servants(Shadow servants): If the shadow creatures assigned to Nathan feel his life is in danger or he is doing something stupid that will endanger his life, they will try and stop him in anyway they can.

Parental Pressure(Mother): He is being groomed, against his will and sometimes subconsciously, to take part in the family business. Sometimes he doesn't even know he is doing it due to the influence of his mother. For instance, he might feel the strong urge to try and make deals with other creatures that put them at a severe disadvantage.

Secret Crush(Sandy Webberburn): He has a secret crush on Sandy Wedderburn, the editor of the school paper. He doesn't quite know how to approach her and his shadow servants constantly discourage it.

Personality:

Nathan is a reserved and cryptic teenager. He really wants to get close to others and develop deep bonds, but is hampered by his families trade. Often times he appears to be talking to himself, which makes even the more alien students think he is weird. His interest in journalism helps him gain access to places his strange personality would not allow and to gain some friends who mostly just want to use him for good mentions in the school paper. He is adept at judging what others want though and using it to gain their friendship, if even for a little while.

Appearance:

He looks mostly human. His only non human feature is his black eyes which he often covers with sun glasses. Physically, he is average. Something that is disturbing though is his lack of a shadow. Light seems to hit him and just pass right through him.

Classes:

Normal - Writing, Psychology, and Business

Para - Inter dimensional politics, secret history of the multiverse, and dimensional economics

Extra Curricular - School paper

Shadow Servants

They are echoes of the more specialized servants who carry out small tasks like scoping out an area, getting Nathans books while studying, serving as an early warning system, playing with him when he was alone on the ship, etc. To those who can penetrate their invisibility they look like shadows.

Autumn Wind aka Leaf
PL 10
PP 150

Image

Background

Autumn was a child with all the advantages in the world. Her parents had money and the ability to give her whatever she wanted. She ascended through the grade levels much quicker than any other student and tested near the top of almost every standardized test. Her parents made sure she did extra curricular activities like ballet, piano, some track and field, and several social activities. They could tell she was bored though. School was just too easy. Sports and lessons were a bore. She seemed to be intuitively good at everything. One day Autumn heard about a highly prestigious school for gifted youths. It was all the way on the East coast, almost 2000 miles from her parents, but they could never say no to their daughter. The day their daughter left them to go to school was the last day they would see her.

On the surface, the school was pristine and elite. All of the classes were at college level and the athletic facilities were top notch. Part of the curriculum was even Autumns favorite subject, ballet. Overtime she wasn't the same person though. She started hearing voices in her head. At times she swore she could hear the thoughts of fellow students. Part of the schools program was living on the campus and staying on campus all year round. Her parents kept promising to visit, but all of their visits ended up having to be delayed due to business.

One night Autumn had the strangest dream. She was in a chair and strapped down. Two doctors where standing over her head. Autumn could not make out the details of what they were saying, but she pieced together the basic idea. She was supposed to be some super body guard. Some beautiful eye candy that could read minds and fight with some of the greatest super powered people. She heard the words greatest subject mentioned a lot.

The curriculum started changing after that night and so did Autumn. She was losing some of her inhibitions and hearing things she wasn't supposed to hear. Her courses started focusing on a ballet based martial arts that emphasized where you hit not how strong you hit. She also was taught darts and how to aim them at a wall of targets. Her studies started focusing almost solely on technology much to her dismay. By that time though she wasn't nearly as inhibited as she had been in the past, as normal people must be to function. The local cat that prowled the campus became her best friend and she frequently spoke to it or rather saw what it was thinking in pictures.

She picked up on a stray thought of one her favorite instructors that today was going to be the day she joined the ranks of the agents. Autumn took it as a game, like she did most things lately, until some men in suits came to her. They brought her to a woman with kind eyes, but harboring a dark secret Autumn picked up on quickly. Autumn was being trained to be an assassin and body guard. The woman took Autumn to a closet and gave her a nice red dress to wear. "Now go change into this behind the screen and we will go see your parents.", said the woman in a kind voice. The thoughts behind it were anything but kind. The mission Autumn picked up on was one of assassination. Putting some of her training to work, she easily took out the agents and woman. A bullet grazed her skull though and knocked out any memories, other than the lessons, of the school out of her mind. Not knowing how she did it, she got past the most advanced security systems and escaped into the world.

She found herself in New Liberty. Wandering a back alley one day, she started dancing, like a leaf on the wind. Some homeless people came up and started asking her her name and where she was from. "I have no idea", she said and kept dancing. They called her Leaf and invited her to live with them. Deep down she had an urge to go home to the west, but something inside her kept telling her no. While dancing in the community center someone read out a a couple of head lines in the corner as reading practice "school bust...ed for raising assa...sins all involved arrested" and "girl still missing be...lieved abdu...cted". The person smiled happily at reading the headline. Soon Leaf became the defender of the homeless from thugs and local drug lords. Word started spreading of a girl who seemed to float like a leaf, but hit like brick in her area.

Dodge 13, Fortitude 10, Parry 13, Toughness 7, Will 4

Total:
Abilities 60 + Skills 6 + Advantages 20 + Powers 48 + Defenses 16 = 120

Complications:

Motivation(Loyalty): Normally she is almost child like, but underneath is a fiercely loyal personality that will do anything to protect her friends and city.

Enemy(Street Gangs): She is the only one standing between powerful street gangs and the native homeless population. They want her out of the way so that they can turn the streets into their personal paradise.

Weakness(Intensely Violent Thoughts): Intensely violent thoughts overwhelm her to the point of paralysis temporarily Examples include mass genocide, pure hatred, and massacres of innocents.

No Memories: She has vague recollections of her past, but cannot remember any of it in detail. Elements of her past can blind side her at the worst possible time.

Personality

She is obviously not all there in the head. She tends to blurt things out when it would be much more polite to keep them in similar to a child. Out of combat she is docile, happy go lucky, and loves to dance and skip when walking would do well enough. While she has no idea what animals are saying, she thinks she is talking to them by reading their mind and seeing the things they see. Her number one quality though is loyalty. When her friends are threatened or there is a job to be done her instincts kick in and she becomes a very agile and powerful fighter for a girl her size. Most of her knowledge and expertise isn't readily known by her. When it is needed it just comes to the surface.

Appearance

Age: 16
Hair: Blonde
Height: 5'8
Eyes: Brown
Description: She looks frail and weak. Her movements are as graceful as a swan.

Power Notes

Her powers come from her intuition and training. She has picked up many things as stray thoughts over the years and she intuitively digs up the training for the various skills when they are needed. Her mind reading has to be focused is she wants to get anything specific. Otherwise she picks up random images that make no obvious sense. Her attack array reflects her instinctive training buried in her subconscious.

Restriction: Unable to cause harm in any way to his twin.

Background:

Jack Doyle was the premiere con man of his day. He coned kings and commoner alike. One day he convinced an orphanage to let him take care of it's treasury. The next day all the money was gone and so was Jack. Surprised by how easy the big score was he targeted charities, churches, and orphanages all over Europe. It was not so much about the money as it was the thrill of getting big scores. One day when he was in the town he committed his first orphanage con he saw the streets littered with children who were nothing more than skin and bones with only scraps for clothes in the dead of winter. When he inquired further he found out that the orphanage had to shutdown soon after someone took all their money. Jack was racked with guilt and donated his vast fortune he had stolen to a group that founded orphanages and helped those in need. Not feeling this was enough, Jack went to a wizard known for his ability to cure people of all sorts of ailments. Jack begged and pleaded the wizard to remove the dark impulses that compelled him to do evil. After much pleading, the wizard agreed. The spell did not work as intended and after the smoke had clear there stood two people where Jack once stood. One was covered in a blackness darker than the darkest night and the other in a light brighter than the sun.

Once the brightness had dimmed and the darkness receded into the person surrounded by it, there stood identical twins of Jack. The spell had caused Jack to split into two people. Each represented one side of him. Befuddled, they just stared at each other for a couple minutes. The dark twin acted first and dark spheres the size of pool balls formed around him. He sent out a barrage of spheres out in every direction destroying everything in the room, including the wizard. The good twin still stood completely unaffected. In response, the good twin sent out spheres of lights one bringing the wizard back to life and the rest attempting to subdue the dark twin to no avail. They kept at it for what seemed like hours until the dark twin got angry. The shield of darkness that surrounded him spread out a little and formed wings. As the dark twin flew off he shouted, "Finally I am free! Jack in no more. The world will now bend to Arthur's manipulations!".

Over the next 10 centuries Arthur and his good twin, John, have been locked in a battle of influence. Whenever Arthur attempted to start a war John would swoop in and make peace. When John was helping a charity raise funds, Arthur would manage to steal all the funds raised. The two were locked in a hopeless battle until John allied himself with other forces of good. The combined might of all the allies of John was too much for Arthur and he kept meeting defeat after defeat. When Tyrant gave Arthur the chance to finally defeat John and his allies it seemed as if someone had answered his evil prayers.

Personality and Appearance:

By most standards Arthur is the ideal specimen of human beauty. He is 6'1, semi muscular, deep blue eyes, jet black hair, and perfect proportions. He always wears the most stylish clothes and prefers a color palette of black and gray. He has no redeeming qualities. There is no mercy, kindness, or love in him. He is always out for himself, but recognizes that he still needs to help allies if he expects to be helped. In his mind, the world and all the people in it are just playthings for him to persuade into doing whatever he feels like making them do.

Good Twin:

The good twins powers are almost the exact opposite of Arthur. Instead of draining, John's boosts and heals. The good twin is motivated solely by good intentions and has no malice, anger, or bad thoughts about anything. Despite all evidence, he always thinks that Arthur and all bad people can be redeemed. He will never kill no matter what.

EDIT: I have created a proposal for Arthur's good twin John. If you are interested I can submit it as Arthur's proposed nemesis.

John Stein(Seraphim)
PL 10
150pp

Background:

John's was the son of two perpetual aid workers. Wherever there was a disaster or humanitarian crisis John's parents went. Most of the time they left John and his sister Julia with their aunt Ruth. Growing up, John hated his parents for running off so much. He could not understand why they would run off and take care of other people when they had two kids at home. In his teen years, he started acting out. His aunt was called to the school on several occasions because of some fight John had gotten into or teacher he made angry. It got so bad his parents had to come back from their latest aid mission to deal with him. Julia was just starting to get into her teens and her parents were afraid John would set a bad example for her, so they pulled some strings with the peace corps and got John involved in an aid mission deep in middle east they were heading off on as well. If John saw what they did, they reasoned, he would understand why they did what they did.

The next several months were like hell on earth to John. If he wasn't distributing supplies he was being trained by some emergency medical workers to help the injured. His parents still ignored him in favor of all the people who needed help. The only part he enjoyed was the medical lessons. At least he could be a plastic surgeon one day and make a lot of money. Everyday his parents grew more and more concerned they made a mistake by bringing John along.

About three months into the aid mission, some refugees from a mighty war had taken an ancient city, rumored to be the birth place of good and evil, as their camp. The ruins provided excellent cover and no army ever dared attack the city for fear of supposed evil spirits who protected it. John and his parents were dispensing medical supplies, food, blankets, and whatever else anyone had donated to the refugees. Like usual, John was acting grumpy in contrast to his parents cheerfulness.

The ancient ruins had not had any extended visitors for a long time and strange things started happening. The first night strange voices were heard echoing through the stone. Everyone just chalked it up to the war. The second night refugees reported seeing strange figures roaming the ruins. Some of the figures were dark shadows and some bright light. Everyone chalked it up to shell shock. The third night is when the blood bath began.

Dark shadows rose up from the floor and started slaughtering refugees. In the panic came creatures of pure light to battle the shadows. The refugees and Johns family had no where to flee because the battles were getting so close to the ruins. A being of light recognized Johns parents as good and kind people. He offered them a way to stop the slaughter at the cost of their lives. Johns mother and father embraced their son for the last time. It was at this moment that John understood his parents. They did it all to make a better world for him and his sister. The being infused Johns parents with a power so great that it changed them into light beings. With their new found powers, they fought back the shadows and saved the refugees and their son.

After the battle, his parents dispersed in a brilliant display of light. The being that made his parents what they were came to John and thanked him for their parents sacrifice. Because of them the forces held within the ruins would stay there. As a gift, the being bestowed upon John powers that would enable him to hold back the tide of evil in the world. The only catch was that he would be incapable of evil himself. Using his new found powers, he lead the refugees to the safety of U.N protection. He traveled the world for a short spell until returning home. He had been tracking an evil spirit that had been causing mischief and it lead right to Green City.

Complications

Honor Code: He is unable do any evil even if in the cause of good. Evil includes deception, killing, withholding help from anyone, hatred, etc.

Motivation: His mission is to track down evil and stop it before it grows too large. He is also driven to help any in need no matter the cost.

Enemies: Ancient, evil forces are out to defeat him or turn him to their side because of the power he possesses.

Relationships: He keeps in touch with his sister Julia and Aunt Ruth every week.

Personality:

Seraphim is the embodiment of compassion, love, good, and all that is right with the world. He does not compromise his morals no matter what. This can lead to some rather bad situations and be exploited easily. He has a zero tolerance policy against killing and even goes so far as to stop others around him from killing. Another trait is that he cannot lie or deceive in any fashion. No matter how hard he tries, he always tells the truth and in turn can easily tell when others are lying.

Power Notes:

All of his light based powers originate from the area target themselves. They all have their own unique color aura that forms around the target. His healing powers, similar to his personality, don't discriminate.

Riley Jenkins
PL 8 126pp

Image

Backstory:

On Riley's home world of Xarah, the Catkin are slaves of the Xarahians who are famous bounty hunters. Their fame is mostly derived from using the Catkin as trackers. The Catkin also are known for their incredible endurance and healing. It is common practice for the Xarahians to send their Catkin slaves into the worst of the worst conditions to track someone. Riley was born into servitude under one of the kinder masters and sent to learn the ways of tracking. For 15 years, he was subjected to the worst possible conditions and taught how to track people on command. His "school" exposed Riley to all imaginable terrors and broke his will to resist. It was easy for them to beat him into submission when he disobeyed them since his bruises would be gone the next day.

Upon graduation, Riley obediently followed his masters every wish and his master treated him kindly. Riley's friends were not so lucky. They were made to go into toxic atmospheres without regard for their lives. Many of them died due to the fumes even with their increased resistance to it. When Riley's master died he set him free and apologized for forcing Riley to work for him. He also made Riley promise as a free feline that he would oppose slavery, in all it's forms. To make his way after his masters death, Riley became a freelance tracker and fights to free slaves wherever he can.

Complications:

Hatred(Slavery): He hates the practice of slavery because he has seen so many of his kind suffer under it's burden.

Appearance:

Age: 30
Height: 5'11
Hair Color: Orange, Brown Spots
Eyes: Blue and White
Description: Looks similar to a large cat except with no tail.


Personality:

Riley is a weak willed creature due to his years of slavery and his harsh training. He also has little fear and if his intense curiosity gets the better of him he will explore despite the dangers. In a team he is more apt to follow the direction of a powerful leader than directly challenge authority. While he will never admit it, he likes having someone else lead in group situations. On the same token, he is not afraid to go on his own. If a course of action is dangerous, Riley will be the first to volunteer while others would contemplate the risks.

Sandra O'Leary(Ghost)
PL 6
90pp

Image

Overview
Age: 21

Ties to Division: Parents Patrick Donelley and Katherine Conner are former division agents now captured and under mind control by Division to work as agents. Division knows they had a child, but can't determine any attributes due to them being wiped of all knowledge of her. They are both assigned to track down the Phasing thief known as Ghost.

Normal Day: Works at Starbucks as a cover. She carries scripts around to pretend to be a struggling actress. She lives a modest life off the profits of what she steals. Most of the money goes to the various fences for their discretion and the fact she never touches the items or meets with them face to face. To those who know her everyday, she is just another struggling actress.

Background

Patrick Donelley and Katherine Conner were both recruited into Division at a young age when they got their Phaser powers. While most of the missions they ran were solo missions that involved infiltration, stealing, etc a couple of their missions they worked as a team. No one would suspect a happy couple are a pair of thief's. It was the perfect cover. They walk into an alley near a target, phase through the walls, procure the item, and pretend to be making out in the shadows when the authorities came. It worked too well though. Patrick and Katherine started having feelings for each other. When Division caught on, they separated the couple into separate groups to hunt rogue Division members. Love always wins out thought, and soon Patrick and Katherine were on the run together.

Not soon after going rogue, Katherine found out she was pregnant. In a tearful night, Patrick and Katherine decided it would be best if they gave their child up when it was born. For 8 months, they stole what they needed to be able to afford to hire a Wiper and freelance Watcher. Katherine gave birth in the usual manner at a hospital 8 months later. It was a beautiful baby girl. For her safety, they named her Sandra O'Leary. Pursuant to the contract, the Wiper erased the memory of Sandra's birth from the mind of the doctors, most nurses, and most administrative staff. While everyone was still recovering, the Wiper along with Katherine and Patrick dropped the child off at a foster home randomly chosen in the phone book with only a slip of paper saying "My name is Sandra O'Leary. Please help me." When the trio slipped into the night, the Wiper finished his part of the plan and wiped Katherine's and Patrick's memory of Sandra. Not soon after, Katherine and Patrick were apprehended by Division and pushed into coming back to work for Division as a husband and wife team.

Sandra grew up in foster home to foster home. She wasn't as cute as some of the other children and didn't play to the prospective adopters sense of guilt. Another issue was that she kept running away from foster homes once she discovered she could phase through solid objects. None of the foster parents could figure out her trick. Unbeknown to her, an elderly thief was following her movements after getting a clue of her talent in a post card sent to him. He recognized her natural talent for the art and took her in when she ran away from her last foster home. He was the first real father she ever knew and she was the ideal student. Sandra was taught all the old man knew of security systems, locks, and safes. By the time he passed, Sandra was an expert in the art. She inherited everything.

A day after she spread his ashes over the ocean, a postcard came in the mail for her at the motel she was staying. It read, "If you are reading this daughter, we know you are safe. We are your parents. The day you came into our lives was the happiest day of our lives. The day we were forced to give you up was the saddest. We cannot say why, just know that we had good reason. Please do not look for us. Division is after you. You must burn this postcard as soon as you get done reading it. We both hope you are having a happy life and know that we love you."

From her time with the old thief, she had heard about Division and the various powers their agents had. Powers like her, but of different kinds. Her parents must have had powers like her to know about Division. Sandra's mind spun tales of all kind to explain why her parents did what they did. They were on the run and gave their lives so she could escape. Division captured them and executed them because they would not give her up. They ran off and left her in someone else's care while they took Division off their scent. All she could confirm from the post was that it was delivered to a post office around the time of her birth and delivered 20 years later to her.

She kept the post card and went into hiding. It was the only thing she had to remember her parents by. To fit in with the others in New York, she took a job at Starbucks and carried around scripts. At work she always talked about how she was going to have her big break in some play and had to learn all her lines. In reality, she never touched the scripts beyond putting some in her bag every morning. The only person she got even remotely close to was her coworker Julia Faraday who she had lunch with everyday. Julia would talk about entertainment law and Sandra would go on about her next big play she was trying out for.

Behind all the normalcy though, hid a master thief. She would steal priceless items and sell them anonymously through random fences. Naturally, the fences took 70% of the sell. The left overs were enough to afford Sandra a comfortable life and enough money to buy information on her parents. So far, she has only learned that they were Phasers, like her, dropped her off with someone else, and were Irish. The hospital seems to have only her birth certificate as proof of her birth. No one can remember a thing from the day she was born.

Complications
Motivation(Find Parents): She can't quite remember her parents due to being wiped, but she is slowly piecing it together by stealing records, paying for information, etc.

Enemy(Division): Division wants to bring her in as an agent and she wants to escape Division's notice to have a normal life.

Identity(Ghost): Division does not know who she is, what she looks like, or even her gender. All they know is that a thief phases through walls, disables security/locks, and steals from places thought impenetrable. Her everyday life she works at a Starbucks and masquerades as a struggling actor.

Reputation(Thief): Ghost is thought of as a thief by police and authorities.

Secret(Parents are Division Agents against their will): She doesn't know who her parents are and her parents do not know who she is or that she even exists. Her parents think they are division agents who ran off to get married and she thinks her parents left her somewhere or are dead.

Personality

Sandra is a happy girl by all accounts. She has a drive to find her parents, she can't even remember that sometimes overwhelms her better judgment. On the street or at work she is just like every other person who claims to be an actor, but works as a waitress or cashier to pay the bills. She has perfected the routine of being ordinary, perhaps maybe too ordinary. She also tends to keep people at bay just in case they learn she is a Phaser and thief. Her only friend is Julia Faraday, her coworker at Starbucks who is a college student. Her other identity is a thief who walks though walls and steals what she needs to survive and get more funds to continue her search. No one truly knows this identity aside from the impossible heist she pulls off. She doesn't use the same fence very often and never directly communicates with them except through burner phones.

Adam Jones(Tempest)
Age: 24
Occupation: Anthropology Graduate Student

Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Personality:

Adam is a friendly guy who does his best to get along with others. His experience growing up with the seedier elements of society taught him to be nice to everyone and they are generally nice to you. In his daily life he is a kind and caring person who is extremely calm. Occasionally his anger comes through, but it is generally no worse than anyone elses. He donates his time to soup kitchens and other charitable causes when he is not researching. Sometimes his anger flairs up though and the raging storm inside of him takes hold causing him to do more damage than he intended.

Background

Adam Jones grew up in the ghetto of New York. He was a scrappy kid who got into a couple fights protecting his friends and even had a couple guns drawn on him. In this environment, a kid learns real fast to be nice to people and how to duck when the bullets start flying. His mother worked at Jones construction, an ironic place to work for sure, but it paid decently and provided enough for her medical bills and a decent apartment. Whenever Adam was brought in by the cops for something or other, his mother was always there to pick him up. His only salvation was the library and all the books on ancient cultures myths and legends. He would get lost for hours in them.

When Adam graduated high school, a miracle for people who came from where he does, he fretted about not being able to afford college. One day his mother brought home a flyer from work announcing the first annual Jones Company scholarship. It offered a full ride plus living expenses. Adam applied, not really thinking he would get it, but a month after applying he got a letter in the mail saying he was given the scholarship. Everyone thought he was crazy deciding to study Anthropology and ancient legends at NYU, but the scholarship had no area of study and that is what Adam wanted to study. The only person who supported him was his mother.

Adam excelled at his studies and soon became one of the most hardworking and brightest students. Everyone in the Anthropology department told him to focus on things like archaeology or studying native American cultures, but Adam knew what he liked and kept at studying myths and legends of ancient civilizations. In his final year, he actually got a paper published on the effects of myths and the mysteries that surround them in modern primitive civilizations. Of course, with his credentials he couldn't really advance further until one of his professors, Professor Andrews, offered to take him on as a student provided he could find funding. Adams mind went immediately back to the Jones construction corporation. He found one of their grants dealt with providing for people like himself a chance at graduate studies, no area of study required. It also was quite the generous one. Adam applied and got the grant.

Things were going well for Adam. When the stipend checks started coming they were large. Not needing much to live on, Adam made a habit of giving half his stipend to his mother, which enabled her to move out of the Ghetto. In his second year, Adam ran across some references to Grecian manuscripts that were only available in Greece. The next week, he used the grant to get a plane ticket on a transatlantic flight.

Complications

Accident: His inner tempest flairs up when he gets extremely angry causing severe storms around him.

Secret: If his powers are revealed to the word he will be looked upon in fear.

Reputation: His field of study lends itself to some people thinking he is crazy and not taking him seriously.

Responsibility(Mother): He gives half of his generous stipend to his mother to support her. She is the only one who supported him when he chose Anthropology over a more profitable course of study.

Secret(Father owns Jones Construction Corporation): Adams father is the wealthy owner of Jones Construction as well as many other businesses. He is too afraid to make himself known to Adam or his mother though, so he helps Adam as best he can with school.

Damian Monroe(Outcast)
PL 10
150pp
Age: 23

Image

Background:

Damian was just another poor citizen of Bastion trying to survive. From an early age he had to fight for scraps and hide from the monsters Stronghold never did anything about. Sometimes he would retreat into his own little world, literally, and end up somewhere else entirely just to cope. He lost his parents and most of his friends in his early teens either to roving gangs, monsters, or just disease. It was around this time he started hanging out with other lost teens. They called themselves the forgotten six. There was more than six, but forgotten six had a better ring than forgotten various numbers. For a couple years they had a nice run, but the rigors of street life in a city of monsters and meta humans took it's toll. The group eventually was whittled down to just six from the 20 or so it had before.

Dr Ezra Gazero, a former scientist for Virodyne, made a proposal to the youth. If they agreed to be test subjects for a cure to the ancient plague he had developed he promised to take them to safety. Before he could test the cure, he had to infect them, so he said. Once they were infected Dr. Gazero gave them another shot that halted their descent into monsters and madness, but kept them as the monsters they were and more inclined to do what Dr. Gazero asked. The cocktail had the effect of increasing Damians ability to teleport into his own dimension so that he could do it at will. The other 5 also got varying degrees of powers.

For a year Dr. Gazero used the forgotten six to commit all sorts of crimes and evil deeds. Due to the drug, they weren't able to say no easily and if one did say no all of them were beaten mercilessly. Word quickly spread in the poor quarters of the city about a group of six monsters who terrorized anyone who had money or gang that of meta humans that got too uppity. The worst words were spread about one of the monsters who could teleport and lash out at several people at once with his deadly tail. Some even started calling him the devil on account of the tiny horns and tail. Behind the scenes, some more forgotten people were being taken and given the same cocktail. Most died before the second serum could take effect.

One day, after a particularly gruesome attack on some meta-humans, Damian had enough. He summoned the courage to break free of the power Dr. Gazero had over him and smashed the lab, along with the notes Dr. Gazero made, to bits. Some of the chemicals had some bad reactions and started a raging fire. All of Dr. Gazeros notes were burned as well as the lab. Damian was able to escape, but the other forgotten six stayed with their master.

Damian tried to fit in with other people after his escape, but all they saw was a devil, demon, or monster. If they didn't run at first sight, they usually tried to hurt him. To hide from everyone, Damian went underground for a year. When he resurfaced, he attacked some thugs who were harassing a poor family. The family thought he was going to hurt them, but he just left. His efforts were not contained to the poor. He also saved a few people from the nice parts of Bastion who had wandered into the bad districts. Word was slowly spreading that the devil wasn't so much of a devil to the victims as most thought.

Of course, Dr. Gazero also heard word of the devil resurfacing. The year had not been kind to him. Rebuilding his lab was harder than he had imagined and without his notes he would have to start from scratch. The whole time he was brooding for a chance to strike at Damian. It was a simple setup. The remaining forgotten six ambushed Damian when he was trying to help an old woman from local hired thugs. He managed to get away and do some damage to his former friends, but the damage was done. He was alone again. If Dr. Gazero could not kill Damian, at least he could ruin Damian's name by spreading lies. To the current day, Dr. Gazero continues to spread lies and track Damian, but in a city where whole districts are full of monsters who can really find a particular one.

Complications

Motivation(Acceptance): Damian desperately wants to be seen as more than just another monster. He goes to great lengths to do good to prove to others, and himself mostly, that he is good and not just the killing machine his origins suggest.

Reputation(Vicious Monster): Damian has the reputation of being a horrible and vicious monster spread mostly by the people who made him a killing machine and the bad guys he goes after.

Enemy(Dr. Gazero): Dr. Gazero made Damian what he is and will stop at nothing to get Damian to rejoin his team of monsters.

Socially Awkward: When in an uncomfortable situation or the center of attention, Damian tends to involuntarily teleport away. He also tends to put people off.

Personality:
Damian is shy and reserved. His genetic manipulation instilled in him a servants attitude. He is more likely to view others as better than him and defer or try to protect them above himself. His genetics of being a slave make him susceptible to most lies and other peoples influences. At heart though he means well and just wants to be accepted as good. In social situations, he tries to fit in, but has no idea how and usually just ends up putting people off or teleporting away.

Power Notes:
His tail attacks combine his ability to teleport using a personal dimension with his natural attacks. The idea is that before he attacks with his tail, he opens a tiny slit into his personal dimension that fractures the attack into several. In the case of area attacks, there are several tiny slits opened near his targets. In the case of multiattacks, it is several tiny slits opened around one target. The healing quality of his strike derives from his tails quality to drain energies on a small scale.

Abilities 24 + Skills 23 (92 Ranks) + Feats 12 + Powers 55 + Combat 32 + Saves 19 – Drawbacks 0 =165/165

Background

Nicholas never knew his birth family. He was told by the people who ran the orphanage he spent most of his early years in that they died in a car accident. As far the they knew, this was the truth. At around the age of eight, when his powers started manifesting, he started causing alot of trouble at the orphanage. He would go into fits of rage and fight other orphans. He would bet them he could do some impossible gravity defying feat and when they wouldn't pay off his bet he would beat them. He spent the next two years being shuffled around orphanages until he was adopted by an enforcer of the Nefaria family.

Nicholas was raised to be a fighter and enforcer. By the age of 15 he was one of the premier fighters in the underground mutant fighting rings. When he wasn't fighting his adopted father was teaching him how to be a good enforcer. Sometimes all people needed was some persuasion and a silver tongue to make them change their mind. A little lying did not hurt either. Soon after his 16th birthday he was made an enforcer and protection money collector in New York. Using the skills taught to him by his adopted father, he used his words more than his fists, but a little violence never hurt.

Nicholas quickly rose up the ranks and made quite a bit of money. It was during this time that his betting became serious. Flush with cash, he would force his way into any poker game he heard about. When he got into too much debt he would refuse to pay and cite his connections with the Nefaria family. No one tried to collect when he mentioned the family.

His new found influence also allowed him to find out the real reason behind his birth parents deaths, the Nefaria family had ordered his adopted father to kill them and to make it look like an accident. Nicholas's father had refused to use his powers to help the Nefaria family. In a fit of rage, Nicholas almost beat his adopted father to death, but a voice in his head told him to show mercy and turn his adopted father into the police with the evidence that proved he was the murder. It was that day he resolved to leave the family and change.

He moved down to Florida and used all his money he had made to found an orphanage for troubled youths. The worst of the worst were welcome at his orphanage and never neglected. He hired the best care giver he could find to run the orphanage and the kindest support staff. The kids under his charge became model citizens with enough love and attention. The community even gave him an award for all the community service his charges did.

Helping troubled youths was not enough for him though. He needed to do more to write the wrongs he had done. To this end, he started the Kozloz Private Investigator service. It specialized in finding missing children, helping those who could not afford protection, and other odd tasks not done by the local law enforcement. The job came easy for Nicholas because of his extensive underground contacts and knowledge of the seedy underbelly of crime. He soon blossomed into the private investigator the poor people of his community turned to for help.

All of his charity and good works is only his public image. He is still addicted to poker and gambling. Without the protection of the Nefaria family, he is on his own for his gambling debts that quickly mount. His powers afford him some protection, but not complete immunity from the people he owes money. The winnings he makes go mostly to support his orphanage, but a small portion go to pay off his debts which always seem to come back.

Personality
He is an extremely nice and charming person. His eyes have a sad look in them though, almost as if he is being so nice to make up for some wrongs in his past. For the most part he stays away from vices such as prostitution and alcohol, but he cannot resist gambling. It is almost impossible for him to turn down a poker game unless there is an extremely compelling reason. He is the quintessential people person. When he is around the orphanage he owns in Flordia, he is extremely nice to the kids and is looked up to in the local community as a saint. He has little knowledge of computers preferring to use his laptop solely for note taking and picture processing purposes.

Physical Description
Age: 35
Eye Color: Brown
Skin Color: Tan
Hair Color: Black
Height: 6” 1”
Weight: 190 lb
His hair is cut short and combed. He has a few scars on his chest and arms from his days of fighting and working for organized crime. He always wears a nice tailored suit complete with a tie and fancy dress shoes. He has a semi muscular build.

Total:
Abilities 48 + Skills 28 + Advantages 11 + Powers 25 + Defenses 8 = 120

Complications:
Motivation(Justice): Views the justice system as a failure after the death of his family by corrupt city officials and mobsters.
Quirk: Always leaves a knife with the symbol of a jester, the mascot of his families traveling show, at the scene of his captures or kills.
Reputation: As his vigilante persona he has a reputation fleeing when the situation looks too grim.

Background:

Drafi was your typical traveling performer. He and his family would book tiny theaters and put on shows of amazing acrobatics, knife tricks, and simple slight of hand tricks. As soon Drafi turned 13 his parents let him be part of the act as the knife thrower. It started small at first with him only doing trick throws at fruits or small targets. As his skill progressed, he started throwing knifes at one of his 5 sisters and making interesting patterns. He got so good his parents let his sister, Julia, and him do the trick with a spinning wheel. He also was the target of knives as well thrown by Julia. She wasn't as skilled, but Drafi was able to dodge the knives really well.

The Dinicu family traveled in this fashion for years. Naturally, traveling together made them quite close. It was hard not to be living in a RV with 8 kids and two parents. It was a treat when they could sleep in the theatre they were renting. One night after a show at a small theatre in Hadrian City, some city officials and mob enforcers came backstage.

"Where is the tax you owe us?", said the official. The enforcers were standing behind the official with knives and baseball bats.

"What tax? We we just small time performers.", pleaded the father. He huddled the family behind him in an attempt to protect them. Drafi was out on an errand and wouldn't be back for a couple minutes, but the rest of the family cowered behind the father.

"I think her necklace and one of you daughters to work the streets would be a good enough tax," said the official with lust in his eyes as he gazed at the beautiful Julia.

"You can't have her. We just want to be left alone. We will leave the city tomorrow if you want.", begged the father.

"That is not good enough. She is coming with us.", said the official as he made his way towards Julia. The father pushed back at the official and knocked over a candle that was being used as lighting. The drapes immediately caught fire and soon the room was filling with smoke and flames.

"Get out of here now.", said the official to the enforcers. On his way out he locked the door behind them leaving the family to burn. When Drafi got back from his errand he saw the theatre burning and the official and enforcers walking out of the theatre. After sifting through the ashes he found 9 chard bodies. In a fit of rage he went to the RV parked out back and detached the motorcycle attached to the back. Grabbing some knives, he tracked down the car the inhuman monsters were in and proceeded to kill them all by throwing knives at their heads.

For a month he tried to be heroic and go after more mobsters, but he lacked that spark until one day when he felt invigorated. Memories of being a Jester for King Arthur and playing pranks came flooding back to him. He also noticed that he could summon knives with a simple thought. After some practice, he donned a jester hat, put on a mask, and dressed as a Jester of old. In his new guise as Jester, he went on a hunt to seek justice that could not be delivered by the system and to protect families like his. To make ends meet, he started doing street shows that showcased his skill with knives.

Personality:

Drafi is the consummate showman. Everything he does is with a good show in mind. Instead of throwing a knife straight at a guy, he will bounce it off one or two walls first just to show off the skill involved. In his non vigilante persona, he is a friendly showman who performs tricks on the street for money. After getting the spirit of Dagonet, he picked up the habit of claiming others feats as his own. As the Jester, he is merciless and unforgiving. If a criminal is particularly bad, he will return the favor in kind by seriously wounding him before finishing him off as a warning to others, He has a habit of leaving his calling card, a knife with a Jester inscribed on it.

Complications:
Patriotism: The spirit of the Musketeers of old inhabits him and gives him undying loyalty to France.
Dual Personality: As a Musketeer he is bold, fearless, and courageous. Without his Musketeer uniform he is a shy academic.
Hatred: Nazi's
Fame: The Last Musketeer is a well known hero in France and admired by many. The Vichy regime would like nothing more than to capture and execute The Last Musketeer to help make his hold on France stronger.

Background:

There is a legend of a great musketeer infused with almost magical powers. Of the great royal troops, he was the greatest. Some said he sold his soul to the devil while others claimed he was the embodiment of the musketeer spirit. When the musketeers were disbanded, the man disappeared and was never heard from again.

As a young boy Constantin dreamed of being a musketeer. He read The Three Musketeers so much that the binding the on the book wore out. He was especially entranced by the legend of the greatest musketeer. As he got older he fell in love with the rich history of France portrayed in the musketeer novels by Dumas. His parents called him crazy for a choosing a life in academia studying French history, but for Constantin it was his dream. In college he managed to earn a doctorate in history with his dissertation focusing on the rise and fall of the French monarchies. Once he earned a professorship at Paris University, he was able to realize his dream of tracking down the truth behind the greatest musketeer that ever lived.

Constantin searched libraries far and wide for any reference to his childhood hero. All his researches lead him to a woman named Adele Roux. She was the last living descendant of Charles Roux, the man behind the legend. Needless to say, he was ecstatic when he met her. He talked for hours and hours about what her ancestor meant to him as a child and the need for France to have a hero like that again to stand up to it's enemies. She was so impressed by his passion for France and the legend that she brought out the uniform of her descendant and gave it to Constantin on the condition he be the hero France needed. That day The Last Musketeer was born.

Constantin could tell it was only a matter of time before Germany rose to power again because of the lessons taught to him by history, so he waited and honed his skills helping the French expand their power and defending the home land from super villains. When the Blitzkrieg of France started he was on the front lines, helping his nation stave off the Germans to no avail. The French and British were too unprepared. He would have stayed and helped the French resistance, but there were already masked heroes helping the resistance. His place was by Charles De Gaulle's side in helping to free the colonies before taking back the homeland. In the years after the fall of France, he worked with other heroes across the globe to help push back against the Nazi's.

Andrea Smith
PL 6
105pp

Background

Andrea was a special girl even in a world with super heroes. She never quite fit in anywhere. It didn't help that her mother and her kept moving every six months either. It wasn't that the they liked moving, on the contrary they hated it. Once someone in the neighborhood found out they were the ex wife and daughter of Albert Jones, a notorious shape shifting serial killer, life became unlivable. Neighbors started keeping their children away from Andrea. Teachers started tip toeing around Cynthia, Andrea's mom, for fear of bringing up old memories. Andrea was lucky though. She could shape shift, like her father, and still go to shops and malls without those looks.

Eventually, Andrea was home schooled by her mother until she turned 14. Home schooling turned out to be the best environment for Andreas fertile mind and fragile identity. While she did not soak up lessons about math and science too well, she excelled at languages. Home schooling also allowed her to be Andrea. Andreas life wasn't perfect, but she had her mother and that is all that mattered to her. If she wanted to go out and socialize all she had to do was become some one else. No one ever knew her as Andrea Jones. They all knew her as Sandy, Erin, Judith, and whatever other identity she wanted to take for the short time she had with her "friends". Andreas mother wasn't as lucky as her. When Andrea was the tender age of 14, Cynthia Jones took too many sleeping pills and never woke up.

Andrea was taken in by someone who knew her family intimately and was known to Andrea as Uncle Adam. He was the profiler who finally caught her father. At first Andrea rebeled, but Adam Brown took care of her like she was his own daughter. He nurtured her language skills and taught her how to get into peoples heads so they trust her without giving her the "look". By the time she turned 17 and graduated high school, Andrea could look at a person, read them like a book, and fit in just fine. Adam also taught her to use her gifts, while keeping her own identity. It was a lesson Andrea didn't learn too well. Being the ever supportive step father, Adam encouraged Andrea to get her degree in what she was good at and enjoyed, languages.

During her undergraduate studies in languages and sociology, she got fairly good marks. It was easy for her. She had studied society and language all her life. The stress of forgetting who she was to always fit in combined with the trauma of her mothers suicide and the sheer amount of time it took for her studies took it's toll though. Some nights she would shape shift into some random person, go clubbing, and engage in all sorts of reckless behavior at clubs. It was here she developed her love of whiskey shots and vodka. Everyone thought she was a model student, especially after graduating with excellent marks. Behind what everyone saw, there was a deeper, darker side no one but Adam saw growing.

By the time she finished her degrees, she was manic due to all the pressure of always being anyone else except the daughter of a serial killer. She delved even deeper into the bottle to keep track of herself and allow herself to be Andrea Jones for a few hours before she passed out. She was still in control, but losing it fast. Her guardian angel, Adam, finally stepped in after realizing he was enabling her and made her move in with him so she could get her life back together.

For a spell it worked. She did not have to pretend to be someone else around him. He knew who her biological father was, but was more than willing to take on the role of a loving father to her. It was the most stress free year Andrea ever had. She did some side work as a translator with the pen name Andrea Smith, but for the most part she recuperated and finally talked to someone about her mother and the horror of being Albert Jones daughter. To teach Andrea some discipline and basic techniques that would help her get into SWAT, a police unit that would not take advantage of her gifts or care about her biological father, Adam taught Andrea krav maga techniques and basic yoga moves. Andrea even remained sober for most of the year, minus a small glass of wine here or there. It was all going alright and she was ready to join up with SWAT.

Adam set her up with the police academy where some high ranking officers immediately recognized the value her gifts and ability to blend in with anyone. After she finished her training, they assigned her to undercover work instead of SWAT like she wanted and gave her the identity Andrea Smith. Every time they sent her under, the temptations of alcohol to be free of the lie of a life she was pretending to live sprung up like a geyser. The only things that kept the demons at bay was her focus on yoga and krav maga. She fought off the demons for five years and amassed an extremely impressive unofficial record. Her testimony lead to hundreds of convictions. All of her accilades remained hidden for fear the police would lose their secret weapon.

Only a few select higher ups in the police force knew her as Andrea Jones the shape shifter and daughter of Albert Jones. All court records of her testimony were under the now legal identity of Andrea Smith. Her life was one big lie again. She was always the biker chick, the sweet charity worker, a secretary at a corrupt law firm, a male body builder in the middle of a steroids ring, or whatever other identity was assigned to her. There was just no time to be Andrea Jones. The worst part was, she had no one to talk to or remind her who she was. Her legal name wasn't even Andrea Jones anymore. Sometimes she got lost in the person she was being to the point her handler had to pretend to bring her in for questioning just to remind her she wasn't a criminal.

It all came to a head one day when the pressure got too much. A woman named Jenifer Lewis was picked up on the street for public intoxication. Andrea was supposed to be in deep cover as a bartender named Samantha Ross at a bar that served as the head quarters of a low level criminal organization, so no one made the connection between Jenifer Lewis and Andrea during the arrest. It was common for Andrea to go so deep she didn't make contact for a couple days. During booking, she kept clamoring in a drunken state she was a cop. No one believed her because she didn't have her badge or any identification on her. Her prints didn't even register in the system. Luckily for Andrea, Adam was on loan consulting on a case and heard the rants. His heart sank and he knew it was Andrea. She had finally lost control. That night he got her into rehab. Her rehab was easily explained by the criminal organization as another flaky, hot bartender.

The upper brass feared her rehab would put all the cases she testified for in jeopardy of being over turned and taint the mountain of evidence she already had amassed against the small time gang, so they registered her as Andrea Jones and asked the facility not to ask questions for her own safety. In rehab, she was able to tell others in her small group about her mothers death that still haunted her. Not going too deep for justifiable fears for her life, she even discussed her fear of losing herself. In private sessions with a therapist who wasn't allowed to keep notes, she confided to a therapist of sometimes thinking she was a biker, drug dealer, or any combination of the many identities she took while undercover. In the two months she was in rehab, she got reacquainted with Andrea Jones.

Officially, her rehab stint was termed a "vacation". In the upper brasses mind, that is what rehab was for her. They fully expected her to come back to the undercover squad. They even gave her an extra month of real vacation time to find herself a new place and prepare to testify. During this time, Andrea started going to AA meetings on a regular basis as a shape shifted persona so she did not run into anyone who might want her dead. After her testimony to the grand jury and the criminal organization pleading out to life, the brass sent her a letter telling her to come back in for work Monday morning. This sent Andrea into a panic. She didn't mind being another person for a couple hours or a day, but she couldn't handle it for weeks on end like before. Adam came to her rescue again. He pulled strings like a master puppeteer to get her into the DOSHT unit with only Sergeant Ramsey knowing about her background. It was Adams hope Sergeant Ramsey could keep her on the right path.

Physical Description

Age: 26
Build: petite
Height: 5'3

Personality

In public, Andrea is the sweetest, most kind woman you will ever meet. She is hardworking, but comes across as the sort of person you would love to be around. While investigating crimes she tends to not follow the rules too well. In private, she hides bottles of whiskey, vodka, and all sort of liquor bottles from herself. She drinks a little while with others, but doesn't drink too much. In reality, she is manipulative and very good at deceiving people. This works well when interrogating a suspect or infiltrating a group, but wreaks havoc on her personal life. On occasion, she will slip back into one of the many persona's she has adopted while shape shifting.

Background:

Arthur, Arty as he was known by his friends, was your typical teenage boy growing up in Briton. He went to school, dated girls rather successfully, and watched football with his mates. There really wasn't anything special about him, aside from some minor psychic abilities hardly worth mentioning. On a good day, he could bend a spoon. It was those days he usually made his mother cross. Like all teenage boys, Arty yearned for more. Adventure, excitement, and fighting villains were just some of the things he dreamed of as he went through his boring life of bending spoons and doing school work. Most days he ended up bending spoons as he wasn't the most academically gifted.

Everything changed when an advert for minor psychic talent was put out by an eccentric billionaire Donovan Kensly. It offered the chance to train up ones abilities and be part of a globe trotting super hero team. The fame, adventure, and excitement was too much for Arthur to resist. At first his parents said no, but what teen really listens to their parents when they really want something? His parents knew he would go. At least if they let Arthur go he would stay in touch. Plus, they would save on spoons. There was one catch, he would have to leave Briton and go across the pond to America. Right after he called the number, there was enough funds for a one way ticket wired to him.

Soon after arriving in America, all the required documents were handled to allow Arthur to stay in America as long as he wanted. Any obstacle to him staying and training was removed by the power of green pieces of paper. These green pieces of paper also provided a large training facility fully equipped with goats, rabbits, bears, and any other sort of animal it was deemed safe to hone psychic abilities on. Arthur and five others who responded were briefly told that they were going to be part of a well funded and highly skilled team of psychic warriors. It would be brutal and many cute bunnies might die, but in the end the six of them would be the premier psychic warriors on the planet.

Training consisted of sitting on a chair and staring at an animal for several hours a day. At first, some of the team drew bears, but that was stopped due to casualties. The team went from six to five. Bunnies, dogs, hamsters didn't work out either. All of the trainees didn't have the heart to hurt them. Eventually, they settled on goats. They were docile enough not to reduce the number of team members, but not so cute the trainees didn't want to hurt them. Once the proper animal was found, training progressed rapidly.

Each team member had their own special role to play. Randolf Hearst could see the future, Eliza Hearn probed minds, Andy Lugs could walk through walls, Mary Smith planted ideas in minds, and Arthur was the telekinetic. None of them, except Arthur, had the most pleasant personalities. Randolf was too worried about what was coming, Andy loved going through walls too much, Mary had a vicious streak, and Eliza always read the worst of creatures. Arthur was the most well adjusted and social one of the lot. After training was finished, they were each assigned numbers starting at 2. Donovan insisted on being number one. Arthur was given the leader position, number 2.

The group of psychic combatants started small. There was a crime family take down in Russia, which put the team on the map. That victory was followed up by stopping underground clubs that allowed non powered people to beat up people with powers who were sedated. Like a river, the victories kept coming and Arthur was the face of it all. He would lead the team into battle and deal with the occasionally messy aftermath. No matter how many victories the team racked up, they were still known as the goat team.

One mission in particular stuck out from the others. Word had gotten to the team that there was a messy demon infestation in Japan. The other heroes of the world were busy, so AEGIS called in the goat team. Their point of contact was an agent named Mike. Upon arrival he had some goats waiting for their private plane at the airport, just in case they wanted to train. It wasn't all fun and games. When the Oni were threatened, it took Mike and all of the goat team to get rid of the demons. Arthur got lucky, he was able to stay out of their heads. The rest of the goat team wasn't so lucky.

Missions went on for a few more years, but it wasn't the same after the Oni battle. Mikes antics when he and the team crossed path, after his tenure with AEGIS was finished, did not carry the same humor value for the rest of the team as they did for Arty. Near the end, it wasn't a giant or super villain who broke up the team. It was a girl. Kamiko Lee started dating the teams mind prober Eliza. She was the first to leave on her own with the encouragement of Kamiko. Mike filled in for a couple missions, but it just wasn't the same. The goat team ended with a whimper, not a bang.

For a time, Arthur retired from the pyschic warrior gig for a more lucrative personal relations position. He had a knack for getting out of press conferences when objects mysteriously fell or lights went out. The super hero flair wasn't quite dead for Arty. It was just hidden in a dark basement behind a door with a sign that read beware of cougars. Mike fanned it when he would call Arty about some mission he was just on or exciting thing he did. The rest of the goat team all went their separate ways and hardly ever spoke. Kamiko tried to bring the group back together, but it was too little to late. When the call came from Mike about joining a new team, Arty could not resist the call anymore.

Complications

Famous: He was the face of the once popular goat team. This leads villains to occasionally challenge him and people ask for autographs at awkward times.

Motivation(Thrills): Arthur loves the excitement and adventure that comes with the life of a super hero.

Responsibility(Parents): Arthurs parents still live in England and he sends them money every month to help with the bills.

Phobia(Goats): He cannot bring himself to hurt a goat.

Personality

Arthur is a laid back, fun loving guy. When the situation calls for it, he is usually the first one to step up and take charge. He may not be the most charismatic, but he makes up for it in intuition and knowing the right words to say. As a leader his style is to let each member do what they do best and step in when the team stops acting like a team.

Power Notes

His powers manifest as little spheres, barely visible to the human eye. He uses these spheres to move objects, create objects, and apply force to other people.
