Background/History:  Kenneth White, super genius. And he let everyone know it.  He was brilliant, but he had an abrasive personality. He alienated everyone in academia and most in industry.  Still he managed to get enough capital to set up his own lab. so what next? Then he heard about a kidnapping of a wealthy heiress and the great reward offered by her family.  So developed a bulky but serviceable battlesuit and after cornering the kidnappers, rescued the lady and got the reward. Since then he has gone out a number of times as Resonator to earn money for his lab.

 

Personality/Motivation:  An ethical mercenary, Resonator is also a scientist at the leading edge of many fields.  So money and intellectual curiosity!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Resonator is a gun emplacement.  He finds a good place to plant himself and starts blasting. If opponents come too close he'll risk the HTH blasts, but then move to a new location to blast from!

 

Campaign Use:  See personality

 

Appearance:  An African American male of 175 m and 75 KG.  The armour looks like a tank and adds about 15 cm to his height and 25 KG.  The suit is metallic grey with blue highlights

 

 

 

 

 

So a Battlesuit build but by someone on a budget.  Seriously this was like Shellhead's first armours, bulky, slow and with limited devices.  First I added a few more entries in the Characteristics list to represent servo motors and reaction modules.  Then I added some minimal flight.  Cleaned up the attacks MP.  And made his disadvantages fit better.

 

So power wise the only flag I have is the 15d6 no range attack.  It is a doozy, but it also has enough problems to be used only in certain situations.  (Example getting through a door or wall and getting that nice presence attack).

 

Personality wise I find him refreshing.  An arrogant scientist, shunned by his peers who has become a hero on his own terms.  You may not like him, but he is on the side of the angels (Just remember In God we trust, all others pay cash)!

Background/History:  Vasily Kurnetzov, hero of the Red Army.  Except the Red Army no longer exists, it became the Soviet Army after WWII.  He was a general fighting the Germans and got caught in a blizzard. When it cleared they found his body, still alive but with a body temperature far below normal.  Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful and soon he was placed in a research facility studying cryo suspension. Then a probe by a soviet telepath finally awoke him.  That was 40 years ago. Since then He has seen many changes in his beloved Russia. But he is a patriot. Currently he is on detached duty as a member of a super team based in Moscow.  There he and his team fight to preserve the Russian people and protect them from enemies within and without. Opponents will learn to fear General Winter.

 

Personality/Motivation:  He's old school army.  Precise, disciplined. He has little political ambition, but uses his influence to help his team.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Vasily is an Ice/Cold blaster.  He prefers to Cage his opponents, but if it escalates he will not hesitate to use his Ice Blast at full power.  As well he's a good tactician and will take advantage of cover and movement.

 

Campaign Use:  Noble opponent or worthy ally.  Depends on the events.

 

Appearance:  180 cm and 80 KG, he wears what appears to be a army dress uniform, but in light blue.  This matches his skin. His hair is white and cut military style under his army cap.



 

 

 

For once they have a NPC that didn't need a lot of clean up, and that was interesting.

 

The build is straight forward.  He has a fair bit of versatility, but if he ever shifts it all to his blast, you are in trouble.  The only real additions I made were +2 all combat (which I am tempted to make Overall) as it fits a NPC with his experience.

 

Personality wise, he's either the noble opponent ( My government demands your capitulation) or a worthy ally ( We agree that this is the greater threat, so for now we fight together).  One thing is to play up his military background.  He's army, with years of combat experience.

Background/History:  Alexandra Maya Laval is the daughter of a French father and Russian mother.  Her father defected to Russia well before she was born, but she always had an affinity for the west.  But even more she has an affinity for space travel. She wishes to become a cosmonaut, to travel in space and maybe even meet an alien species.  When she joined the program early test registered Psi potential and she was convinced to enter a special division to develop her powers. Soon she developed definite Psi talents.  After the Soviet cosmonaut program was discontinued, she became despondent. Her medical degree, her Psi talents, all for naught. Then General Winter approached her. He could use a Psychic on his team, and given how Western Supers seem to meet aliens all the time, it was inevitable that on his team she would meet some of her own.  As well it helps to be useful and in aiding the people. So she became Sympath.

 

Personality/Motivation:  Sympath is a little lost in life.  She set her sights on a goal that she now believes has been snatched from her.  Her being on the team is making her feel useful, but she hopes soon to meet some aliens and learn about their beliefs and culture.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Alexandra is a telepath with the ability to override a mind or cause it to misfire.  As well she can project he consciousness ahead of her to scout an area. When with her team, she will do this to give General Winter as much info as she can so he can formulate a decent strategy.  If battle starts, she will try to find cover and override an opponent into wasting his time. if the situation warrant it she'll use the ego blast. As well she carries a set of syringes that can jumpstart recovery or cause a paralysis.  

 

Campaign Use:  Super looking for a greater purpose.  

 

Appearance:  175 cm tall and 65 KG, she has long brown hair and brown eyes.  She wears no costume, trusting to the anonymity that normal clothing provides.  But at General Winter's orders it is armoured.


 

 

 

This was another build where I didn't have to add a lot to the build.  But I did update it for a more modern feel to it.  She's a space explorer who can't explore.  So a bit of the tragedian in there.  

 

Power wise she relies on anonymity.  She's just a face in the crowd.  As well she's an excellent scout.  All I'd really give her is some basic Martial Arts so she can fight off those mindless drones.  

 

On the whole I like her!

Background/History:  Josef Petrovich was an up and coming KGB agent when he was selected to be the wearer of the Sensor suit.  It was a state of the art suit designed to gather information. The interfaces greatly add to the wearer's on senses, making him a perfect covert operative.  All he has to do is get close and listen and watch. So when General Winter began his little team, Josef was assigned to the team and an extra scout. But really he is to report on the General and his activities.  This is getting hard to do. Josef is impressed by the General's leadership and it is rubbing off on him. As well some of what Josef has seen are things that should be hidden. So Josef is riding a tightrope. But Sensor hopes he can see it coming!

 

Personality/Motivation:  A classic spy with a suit that makes him walking sensor device.  Sonar, nightvision, super sensitive touch, high range hearing, and radio transmit/receive across all frequencies.  Also the suit amplifies his reaction time and allows him to generate an electrical touch. As well he carries a blaster pistol.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Along with Sympath, he's a scout.  He'll find a nice spot and gather as much info as possible.  This he feeds to the General. If combat starts he'll pick his shots for where he thinks it will do the most good.  If he gets into HTH he'll shock them or use his Martial Art training.

 

Campaign Use:  KGB agent having a crisis of conscience!

 

Appearance:  167 cm and 70 KG with short blond hair and blue eyes.  His suit is a full bodysuit in flat black with dark grey highlights!

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously this was a build that just had to be added to.  The core concept is good, all I had to do was make additions to the suit, the pistol, and extra skills, and presto.... we have the sneaky scout who gets into position for that surprise blast.  Also he's perfect for saying where an opponent is, even if hidden, invisible or being stealthy.  He's a sneaky teams worst nightmare.

 

Personality wise, I made him more troubled.  Who is he loyal to?

Background/History:  Nikolai Shatalev was an up and coming Soviet weightlifter. Then some person had the idea of making him stronger by electrical stimulations of the muscles.  To further enhance the effect, he was subjected to gene modification using electric eel DNA. And it worked. His strength became amazing. But soon after rules were passed barring paranormals from competing in the Olympics. His dreams dashed, he isolated himself.  Until General Winter approached him with the challenge of testing his strength for the betterment of the Motherland. Nikolai threw himself into it, seeing it like a competition to beat others and better himself. So Megawatt joined up for some friendly competition!

 

Personality/Motivation:  He's a sportsman turned superhero.  He looks on this as a competition, and a friendly one.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Strong and durable, Megawatt is a classic brick.  But he also has electrical projection powers. He'll try not to use these unless the situation calls for it,or General Winter orders him to!

 

Campaign Use:  The happy go lucky soviet opponent/ally!

 

Appearance:  At 184 cm and 130 KG, he looks like a classic soviet weightlifter.  His hair is very short brown and he has green eyes. His costume is green with yellow highlights!

 

 

 

 

 

So the original was certainly low powered at 45 strength.  So I upped the strength stat, added some movement, cleaned up so other powers, added a few skills and presto, basic champions brick with a bit of a surprise.  

 

He's a bog simple build because he's a bog simple character.  But if played right, he can become that likable opponent. (after battle we go share bottle of vodka, YES?).

Background/History:  Harold Martin, scientist.  And compulsive gambler. Harold was in debt to some people, but as he was working on a project involving speed of light teleportation, if he could get them some "info", then the debt would be forgiven.  As he was copying some of the info, he was surprised by Jeanne Smythe another scientist. In the struggle, he knocked her unconscious. Fearing he killed her, Harold stuffed her into the Tport and randomized the coordinates.  But shortly after security began banging on the door, so Harold reset the coordinates and tported out as well. The resulting fire hid all evidence of his(?) crime. Because when he awoke he was in Jeanne's body. That night he dreamed he was male again, and it was so.  Soon he found he could shift at will, and that he had great powers over light. So he keeps to the Harold identity as a cover for Jeanne Smythe, now called Lumiere!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Greedy and power hungry.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Lumiere is not a front line fighter.  Instead she'll hang back using flashes, dazzles, holograms and blasts to support her team.  

 

Campaign Use:  A very behind the scenes villain.  As Harold (s)he can get inside info that Jeanne can then take advantage of!

 

Appearance:  As Harold 180 cm 220 KGs.  He has brown hair and wears glasses.  As Jeanne 170 cm, 70 KG with long blond hair and green eyes.  Her costume is a full bodysuit of two toned yellow!



 

 

 

Not a lot of raw power, but tonnes of behind the scenes potential.  Played right he/she could plague the group for a long time.

 

Build wise it was OK just the shape shift needed some work.  Personality was kept pretty much as written as well.

 

So I actually like this character.

Background/History:  James O"toole is a second story man.  He specialized in unique art. But when he stole from a collector of the occult, a ebon mirror started to scream.  As he stood there, the mirror broke and a black cloud energed and entered James. James quickly left and vanished. It turned out that the cloud was a creature of darkness and was willing to act as a co tenant.  In return it will let James have access to his powers of darkness. And the mirror itself still had powers as a defensive device and was made into a shield. So he act as a super thief. But the bargain has also made him isolated.  He exudes a creepy "otherness" and his eyes are jet black pools. So he steals, as Sneak Thief!

 

Personality/Motivation:  An isolated man, stealing is the only time he feels engaged.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  He's not a combatant, but more of a scout.  With darkness, desolid, invisibility and teleport there is very little he can't get to.  If he has to he has a darkness touch, but if combat starts, he'll use his shield to protect himself and try to get out of the fray!

 

Campaign Use:  A super thief with ties to the occult.  

 

Appearance:  160 cms and 65 KGs with red hair and black pools for eyes.  His shield is a black glassy slab, and he dresses in blacks and greys!

 

 

 

 

 

Again a fairly straightforward build.  If you need a super thief, then he's perfect.  With him its not the fight, but actually catching him!

 

So within that narrow focus, he does what he is built for!

Background/History:  After fifty year, Robert Gantry had achieved almost complete unity with his Martial Arts.  But after an altercation with some muggers and some policeman, he found himself paralysed by a policeman's bullet.  But a new drug and radiation treatment looked positive to restore his mobility. He agreed and as the treatment started he started a meditation to jump start his healing process.  The result were disastrous. His mobility was restored, but his body is now in a hyper heal mode. His skin is constantly renewing itself, and immune system has become almost acidic to others.  His mind broke and Gantry went on a rampage. Then he disappeared. After a time he re emerged and the sociopathic killer called Deathgrip!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Hate.  Hate for the criminals who started the mugging, hate for the cops who shot him.  All will but punished for making a peaceful man into a monster!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Deathgrip is no berserker.  He pick is opponent and goes in defensively at first, the offensive as soon as he gauges their abilities.  Against hard to hurt opponents he'll go with his touch attack!

 

Campaign Use:  Mad dog killer!

 

Appearance:  175 cm and 75 KGs he is bald with skin that seems to be flaking off all the time as if a scab is healing.  He wears a black doji with a death head symbol on the chest!

 

 

 

 

 

Every once in a while you need the remorseless killer type that the group will not feel bad about taking down hard.  That is Deathgrip.  His story is tragic, but the monster must be contained.

 

Build wise he's not bad.  A Martial Artist with a bit extra.  

 

Personality wise, a barrel of hate and fury.

Background/History:  Her parents wanted her to go to college, but Nora Hansen prefered sales.  Specifically controlled substances. Soon the graduated to smuggling, and found flying her true calling.  Soon she was one of the best smugglers in the Caribbean region. After doing a job for Lumiere, she was gifter with a pneumatic pack that enables flight and power punches.  Since then she has made a name for herself as a very specialized courier and smuggler. As well she hires out for the occasional smash and grab jobs. On the whole she loves being Airhammer!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Greed and thrill seeker!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  She's a speedster.  Hit and runs. If she has to she can go toe to toe, but prefers wide open spaces.  

 

Campaign Use:  Smuggler, extra muscle!

 

Appearance:  160 cms and 55 KGs with Shoulder length brown hair and eyes.  The suit is metallic grey with black gloves, boots and backpack!



 

 

Airhammer is another of the iconic NPCs in this module.  The look and power set are different enough to get noticed.  As it is she's a speedster in a battlesuit.  A different take on battlesuits and a unique spin on a speedster.

 

Build wise this needed a lot of work.  70" of flight and a 14d6 EB was way over the top.  When compared to other NPCs, her powers were totally overdone.  So I reduced both, added a few improvements to the armour and added an End Reserve. 

 

Personality wise, she was OK.  Not much to add.

 

Note she can be very dangerous if used properly.  1+1/2 X KB can hurt if she places herself right.  And combos with other villains (Paralysis from Lumiere) can ruin a heroes day!

 

I like her and would love to incorporate the NPC into my next FtF game!

Background/History:  Dimitri Vostok was a USSR cosmonaut on a four man mission to Mars when he disappeared and was presumed lost.  In actuality he was captured by aliens, who proceeded to experiment on him, improving his physical abilities. Then he was placed in cryo sleep.  When he awoke, the ship was under attack. He made it to an escape pod and ejected, over Earth. When he landed he found over 40 years had passed.  Russia had changed, as had the world. Not having many ties to Russia anymore, Dimitri scrounged his pod for equipment and decided that the world needed a new hero, Copernicus!

 

Personality/Motivation:  To be the hero he always wanted to be.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  A highly trained cosmonaut, the aliens improved him physically to peak human potential.  Add an armoured suit, a flight pack, a shielding device and a power blaster. He knows he's not good in HTH, so he'll stay at range as much as possible.

 

Campaign Use:  Hero from a simpler time.  Also very much a fish out of water.  

 

Appearance:  185 cm and 78 KG with black hair and green eyes.  His costume is a two toned blue bodysuit with golden gloves, belt, holster, flightpack and helmet.  On his chest is a white criss cross with a planet symbol in the middle!

 

 

 

 

 

I like and don't like the build.  

 

Like:  He's built for what he does.  He's a super agent type.  Some skills and a set of special equipment.  Good range of skills (with room for improvement like stealth).  And a definite combat niche.  Seriously I have always wanted to play a type like this.

 

Dislike:  Russian soldier abandoning his country.  Yes I know they are the Evil Empire, but as a trained cosmonaut, he had to develop a serious set of patriotism muscles.  But really it is a minor quibble and opens up a lot of role play opportunity.

 

SAS doesn't go heavy into the complications area, so some of that I had to extrapolate from the text!

 

Power wise all he needs is some Martial Arts or a HtH gadget / gizmo.  Stats are good and he's really a solid build.

So he's an example of a normal human who happens to have access to a lot of power.  His stats are low as even for SAS his stats are low.  But that is made up by his access to a large VPP.  Now the Dynamic Powers in SAS come in three flavours minor, major and primal.  This is the third one, with anything dealing with motion which is pretty broad!

 

So he should have a set of go to powers and some he regularly access in many cases.  But he still is under-powered for a Champions game.  Some Dex, Con, a point of Spd and some abilities outside the VPP and he's good to go.  

 

As it is he can be improved in many ways and has a real good solid base to work from!

Background/History:  Mark Seneca was a child of greek immigrants who became an archeologist in Greek culture.  But it was one thing to look at books, he wanted to be there. He took numerous trips with his family, but after graduating, he took a solo trip.  One night, he spied a mountain reaching to the heavens and the top covered by a storm. It had to be Olympus. He started to climb, but then a bolt of lightning hit him and sent him back to earth.  When he awoke, he was unharmed, but changed. Larger and stronger and crackling with energy. Finding a brass shield nearby he took to the hero life in Athens, and later Europe. Now he's back in the USA to make a name for himself as the Olympian!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Justice and glory

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  A hth brawler.  

 

Campaign Use:  Ties to the gods?

 

Appearance:  At 200 cm and 196 KG with black hair and blue eyes.  His costume is a greek style tunic in dark blue with white leggings and boots.  He wears a dark blue mask and has a large brass shield on his left arm!

 

 

 

So this is a good balanced NPC.  Good stats, skills, and powers.  Seriously I can't think anything bad, except maybe extra DC for the thrown shield and the Martial Arts.

Background/History:  Dr. Alexander Reynolds was researching super condustors for SCI industries.  When an accident resulted in a stable compound, he was delighted. But the stability was dependent on each donor's structure and had to be living.  When his superiors balked at his findings, he resigned and continued in private. Then SCI offered to hire him back. He refused. Then came the lawsuits.  But he continued his research until finally he produced a viable stable sample. Then came the explosion. He awoke to find his lab being ransacked. Having the one sample in his hands, he drank it and it bonded with him.  Now possessing super powers, he defeated the goons, but they knew nothing. So he built a sensory helmet for himself and donned a red bodysuit to become Sirocco>

 

Personality/Motivation:  Scientific curiosity.  And a dislike of those who infringe on it.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  A classic Speedster.

 

Campaign Use:  Industrial espionage, a new scientific problem and he is a world class genetic and biochemical researcher!

 

Appearance:  175 cm and 65 KG with blue eyes and black (grey temples) hair.  His costume is a red bodysuit with gold knee pads, bracers and helmet!


 

 

 

So again because the way SAS does stats, the physical stats are low.  But the rest is standard speedster.  As well SAS does basically a MP for any attacks.  And these fit thematically.  As well he has a decent background.  and a good set of skills.  To make him Champions compatible I would add about 10 pts to Dex.  and some DCV only skill levels!

Background/History:  Marva Raevski died on Mars.  That was the official story. So when she showed up alive in Belarus two years later, it was an official embarrassment.  So she was quietly shipped out overseas and eventually ended up in Mexico. Then on a conjunction with Mars she heard the word Akanidi in here head and her world exploded in a blaze of light and fire.  After a short rampage, the name was repeated and she returned to normal. Since then she has lived a quiet life in Mexico, but the voice occasionally forces her to transform for mysterious ends. Marva is afraid what the voice is and slowly tries to make sense of her life!

 

Personality/Motivation:  As Marva, to try and find out what the voice in her head wants.  As Akanidi, there seems to be little to connect her actions.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  As Akanidi, she has great control over light and heat.  This includes EB, flash, Change Environment, Invisibility, darkness, and similar.  Add the great durability in her Akanidi form and you have a formidable person.

 

Campaign Use:  Mysterious super with a mysterious agenda.

 

Appearance:  As Marva 163 cm and 59 Kg with brown hair and blue eyes.  As Akanidi, 300 cm and 472 Kg glowing orange and yellow with a blazing corona in place of hair!


 

 

 

So I like the idea.  The mysterious background makes it so she can be an ally or an opponent as the story dictates.  In normal for she can be a useful ally.  But in powered form, she can be a bull in a china shop.  

 

My one disappointment is the use of Dynamic Powers (VPP in Hero) to categorize her abilities.  This is a type of hand wavium that I found way to common in this book.  Lets get some concrete abilities here.  At least Delta-V had a list of powers.  She just gets heat and light.  For an unseasoned GM this is a nightmare.  

 

But the background is cool, and I could work around the loose description, so a thumbs up!

Background/History:  Pieter Hans Lissot was from a privileged family but contracted polio leaving him with very weak legs.  Researching ways to fix his legs, he instead found a way to boost tissue samples of people with powers.  He wanted to pursue this avenue, but it would be more than his family had. So he made a deal with organized crime. What he didn't tell his backers was that the process had small side effects and was addictive.  Using his new superpowered followers, he broke the control over him and re-negotiated his deal. Since then he boosts people for a fee, and uses his money to further his research for a cure.

 

Personality/Motivation:  Noble ends but ignoble means.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  He has no real powers of his own except for gadgets he uses mainly for escape purposes.  Instead you will meet his minions, small power supers who he has boosted. The addictive property ensures he has their loyalty!

 

Campaign Use:  Source of supers for organized crime!

 

Appearance:  183 cm and 68 Kg with blond hair and green eyes.  He wears fine suits and has a set of crutches to walk with!


 

 

 

Need a reason why the opposition is getting nastier.  Here's the explanation.  And he's also an example of noble ends with ignoble means.  Seriously you can sympathise with his plight, but what he is doing is creating a lot of harm.  

 

He's not a fighter, and should remain a background guy.  Played right he could bedevil the heroes for a long time.

Background/History:  Marisa Tambolt's father was a game warden in the Republic of the Congo.  She grew up learning to hunt, track, and live in the wilds. Then he was killed by poachers, and she wanted revenge. Tracking them down, she beat them all and rescued the animals they had captured and were planning to sell.  Realizing she needed to be more proactive she obtained a pair of water guns and a modified jet ski and took to the rivers of her country as Cong, protector of the wilds!

 

Personality/Motivation:  To protect the trees.  And everything else!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  If overt, she rides in on her jet ski and goes in blazing.  If covert, then she will try to sneak in and do the damage and sneak out.

 

Campaign Use:  Environmental activist who has decided to take matters into her own hands!

 

Appearance:  179 cms and 73 KG with black hair and eyes.  She wears what appears to be a game warden's uniform with a large hat.  The hair is actually a wig to change her hair, and a mask to help hide her identity!

 

 

 

This one I did not like.  Environmental activist goes overboard.  

 

But the concept of the jet ski and water guns was cool.  But unless you are doing an adventure in the Congo, you probably will not run into her.

Background/History:  In Los Angeles if you have an unusual problem, you want an unusual private investigator.  Edgar is a bull gorilla who stands upright, speaks eloquently and is never found without his trenchcoat and cellphone.  How he came to be is still a mystery, but Edgar has used his skills to open DeadEye Chimp Investigations. No case is too unusual.  

 

Personality/Motivation:  A private investigator and a weirdness magnet!

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  A classic investigator.  Think "Rockford File" and "Columbo".  Add the ability of a fully grown male gorilla.  And add some gadgets and weapons. He carries a pair of 9mm pistols, but has vowed to never kill, so he uses them for trickshots or on targets he is certain can take the punishment.

 

Campaign Use:  A gorilla PI.  There has to be some way you can work him in!

 

Appearance:  A fully grown gorilla (200cm and 241 Kg) with black fur and eyes.  He wears decent clothes with brown trench coat.

 

 

 

 

 

This on they got right though.  He oozes interesting.  From possible hooks on his background, to the fact that he is a licsensed PI with the skills and tool to back it up.  He can be used in a number of scenarios.  And If you game is not in LA, just move him over.

Background/History:  System Crash has been touring since the 1990s.  The fill stadiums and sell platinum albums. Much of this is due to King Volt.  The villain attacked a concert, and the electricity that coursed through the applifier affected lead singer Johnny Cross, gifting him with powers over sound.  His record company, seeing a cash cow, re-invented the band as ROCK HEROES. Now he tours the country performing and fighting crime. He's Feedback!

 

Personality/Motivation:  He's a superpowered rock star.  

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Already having great control over sound, he also has the BLASTER GUITAR to focu his powers and give him some offensive punch.  Thus he will use his other powers for defence and movement!

 

Campaign Use:  A Wild Card.  Also it is there that the whole band got powers.  

 

Appearance:  188 cm and 100 Kg with blue eyes and long sandy hair.  He wear heavy metal leathers and has a gleaming guitar!



 

 

One in a long line of rock heroes. And villains, remember Hero's Road Kill. Well he is in distinguished company. And he has the standard sound based power set. Again they gave him the VPP, but at least they added the souped up guitar. He's not really mercenary, but his management is and they'll insure his at a place where some action is happening. Possible plot is they are causing the problems to make him look good. 

Another addition is that the whole band got powers. 

On the whole he's servicable!

Finally a Chinese hero who isn't a Martial Arts master.  And I like his power set.  But he could use a few more powers, but on the whole he's good to go.

 

Personality wise he is cool also.  He's certainly on the side of the angels, but prefers to keep it more low key.  And if you want some Chinese action (Hong Kong Action theater) then he's your man.  

 

I like him!

Background/History:  The Russian to Mars was plagued with problems, so when transmissions died off and didn't come back on, the project was quietly closed down.  Then 687 days later a complex transmission came through. But it was so complex it could not be deciphered. So for 40 years it was "buried".  Then a dedicated and brilliant researcher after a year of effort, broke the code and out came Star Imp. A bio energy life form, it was extremely immature and playful, but had no clear idea of its history.  It is thought that in the transmission, some was garbled. So it wanders the world, especially any facility with a space program. Some speculate it wants to go home, but Star Imp can't or won't tell!

 

Personality/Motivation:  Imagine a hyper six year old with powers.  He just wants to have fun.

 

Quote:  

 

Powers/Tactics:  Permanently in energy form, he is desolid, can t-port and can generate an electric shock the effects electronics.

 

Campaign Use:  Comedy!

 

Appearance:  100 cm and 1 kg with mirrored eyes and no hair.  And his hair is green with what appears to be a green bodysuit!



 

 

 

Want to add a bit of levity to your campaign?  Here's Star Imp.  He's got a short attention span, a huge curiosity, and the ability to get anywhere he wants.  If you have seen Roger Rabbit, think him!  But only use him to cause problems for everyone.  He's not malicious, just majorly immature.  

 

As long as he is used for this, then he's perfect.  Serious arcs are not made with him in mind, unless it is a final one where he finally goes home.
