It's taken?: Julio has terrible luck choosing a superhero codename he was the Silver Samurai until one too many pointless fights & some shady legal pressure convinced him to change his colour scheme. He's hoping Green Ronin is free otherwise it's another change to Red Ronin.
Doctor: The inherent conflict between the Hippocratic oath & being a sword wielding superhero is not lost on Dr. Cruz & he never knows which will win out.
Relationships: Julio still regularly sees his parents who often visit Toronto to visit him, is engaged to Dr. Alyson Chambers & is effectively a stepfather to her daughter Jordan.
Enemy: The Hydra- Kirill Desny Russian former agent with 7 tentacles in the place of his missing right arm, first sent by unknown benefactors to steal Julio's sword he subsequently became obsessed with defeating our hero.
Enemy: The White Scorpion ninja clan whose emnity for Master Hoshi the man that trained Julio in swordplay has been transferred to the young doctor.
I was slightly less rushed today so hopefully everything is right this time.
The APs I have are intended to convey the logic of how the sword works rather than save points.Where did your powers come from? Julio discovered a psychoreactive alien metal & after sufficient training in the art of the Samurai was able to control it enough to cast it into a sword
What is your character like? Julio has an easy charm but is nearly completely unaware of it himself perhaps as a result of moving so much as a child & never feeling at home. He can be slightly fidgity.
He has great trouble seeing what other's think of him, it took Alyson over a year of trying to make him realise before she just asked him out herself.
Why are they a hero? Julio took the example of his mother to heart a doctor herself she always taught him that whatever gifts you may possess should be used for the betterment of the world.
It was why he pursued medicine himself & though he considered giving the metal to some kind of authority his early encounters with dangerous people seeking it convinced him it would not be safe to do so & that it was his responsibility to use it.
What is their life like outside or being a hero? Job? School? Family? Though he lives far from his parents Julio still sees them fairly regularly as work permitting they can afford to visit him.
Outside of his work at the hospital Dr. Cruz lives with his girlfriend Alyson Chambers & her daughter Jordan. Alyson has more responsibilities than Julio at work & as such he tends to be the one to go to school events like plays & parent/ teacher meetings more often that she can.
Born in Mexico city to Cesar & Lilia Cruz a writer of some repute & a surgeon respectively, young Julio Cruz lived a charmed life raised in luxury & with an international education only money could buy.
His own intelligence & aptitude even for more physical endeavours and a way with words likely from his fathers constant reading to him as a child guaranteed he could choose whichever path in life he desired. And whether because of the glamorous way they were portrayed in the media or even just his own good heart & the values his parents gave him Julio wanted very much to go into medicine.
It was when he was just 21 that young Mr. Cruz found the alien metal & keeping it secret from everyone else began to experiment with it (& unbeknownst to him bond with it) in those first days it's responses were chaotic as it jumped & writhed attempting to conform to every unclear thought Julio had.
What began with thought exercises to help him control it turned him then to martial arts & eventually zen swordsmanship. It was during his first forays into using his new toy to try & help people that he was attacked by Kirill Desny, who claimed he'd been sent to reclaim the metal by patrons he wouldn't reveal & indeed had a device capable of tracking it.
They fought, Desny was clearly the better fighter & was toying with our hero Julio panicked & not even realising he'd thought it seemingly willed the metal into tripping the Russian who fell into some machinery. Julio jumped to stabilise him & was successful managing to disappear just as the help he had called for the man appeared.
Our hero was horrified at what had happened & it was his haunting by the memory of that moment that led him down the path of casting the metal into a sword, limiting it's utility but allowing him better control over it.
It also led him to move far from his home both hoping it would keep his family & friends safer & also that perhaps they had only been able to trace the metal to where it landed.
He settled in Toronto finishing his studies & finding work at Mount Sinai hospital where he met Alyson Chambers. And serving the community the best he could both as a doctor & as The Green Ronin.
EDIT- The numbers should god willing be straight now.
Added a complication to help explain an advantage without over bloating the background though if you'd rather I do it the other way then I'm more than happy to.
Answered the profile questions mentioned in the OP hopefully they'll add a little more meat on top of what else I've written.
But I'm still not clever enough to work out how to post an Image from hero machine so I may just add a costume description later once I've thought about how to describe it more clearly.
