MICRONA

Rhea Haterstone was born to an abusive alcoholic mother who hoped one day to make it big with her singing career. Rhea spent most
of her life traveling around the country while her mother sang at karaoke contests or danced at sleazy nightclubs. Eventually her mother
came to Miami and became involved with a drug dealer name Jock Karr. Fearful of the company he kept, Rhea took to living on the streets
and staying over at friend’s houses for as long as their parents would have her. Eventually someone called social services. Rhea wasn’t home
at the time. When she finally did come home, an intoxicated Jock attacked her and knocked her unconscious.
A bloody and beaten Rhea woke up in a garbage dumpster. From that moment, she stayed away from home and wanted nothing more
to do with her mother. Life on the streets was rough. She avoided dangerous situations whenever possible, but at the same time, she did
whatever she had too in order to survive. One day she stood in line with several individuals upon hearing a man would pay out $500 to
anyone willing to donate some blood. Rhea and thirty other people showed up. The doctor and his associates not only took blood but also
injected their “test subjects” with an experimental drug that was supposed to make them physically stronger and healthier. Instead, it
turned twenty-nine of the individuals into rampaging lunatics. They ended up destroying several city blocks and causing the death of dozens
of people. Police in riot gear were called to restore order. They ended up killing half of the crazed-maniacs and those they didn’t seemingly
disappeared within two hours after being subdued and contained. Rhea was the only person who stayed sane and became physically
stronger, to the point she could lift a car over her head. Her skin became as hard as steel, she could hover/fly at will, and reduce her size to
one-eighth of an inch, yet retain her mass and strength. At first, she didn’t know how to control her powers and spent several days at her
shrunken size. However, the moment she mastered her abilities, the world became hers to do with as she pleased.
One day she tried picking the pocket of an older business looking man. He grabbed her arm. She lofted him up in the air. He suddenly
produced a mysterious gun and shrank himself to one inch in height. Rhea did the same. Amazed the two struck up a conversation. The man
turned out to be Eduard Weissor, the original Professor Fraction. Calling her Particle Girl, Rhea became his assistant. During her time with
Prof. Fraction, Rhea became a wanted super villain, having numerous encounters with super heroes and S.C.R.E.T. However, Rhea never
killed anyone nor did she do anything too inadvertently to cause the death of anyone. Her boss on the other hand had no qualms about
killing people, especially hostages. Rhea started questioning her goals and choices in life. Did she want to end up being just like the
Proffessor? That question was answered when he decided to hold an elementary school hostage for 100 million dollars. Using his shrink
technology, he shrank an elementary school to the size of a dollhouse with all the teachers and kids inside. One of the teacher’s assistants in
the school just happened to be Mary Garson. A shrunken Pulsar and Rhea battled for an hour. Eventually the exhausted heroine convinced
Rhea that her boss was not going to let the hostages go. When Rhea confronted Professor Fraction, he admitted it. Rhea turned on him. He
managed to escape while Rhea stayed behind to help restore the people. Rhea expected to be led away in handcuffs. Pulsar invited her to
come back with her to Omega Team HQ. There she persuaded Redfire into letting her join up with them. Redfire decided to give her a
chance, if she changed her name, but he wouldn’t allow her to stay at the mansion. She had to live in town and meet up with them if they
called her. After several successful missions, Redfire agreed to allow her into the mansion. Rhea has only been with Omega Team for just a
year and few remember that she use to be a super villain.

SCRAMBLER

Danteria is an Arismal like her brother Jarion only she adored a life under military leadership. Yet her father Zenys Flask, the Captain
of one of their surviving Leviathan-Class Battleships, refuse to believe his daughter had what it took to be a commanding officer. Danteria
always worked harder and did whatever she had to prove him wrong. Yet her father refused to recognize her potential. When Jarion left,
Danteria felt abandoned and wished he’d taken her with him. With his son gone, it allowed Danteria the chance to prove her worth and the
honor she could bestow upon the family name. Quickly Danteria rose to the rank of Lieutenant Commander but she began to hear the
stories of her brother’s exploits as a pirate. Growing increasingly envious of her brother and bored with the rigid command structure of
serving the military, Danteria asked her mother what she thought she should do. Her mother told her to follow her heart. The next day
Danteria stole an experimental stealth transporter and left the Arismal fleet. She eventually became a smuggler, selling high tech weapons
to non-starfearing worlds, a policy heavily frowned upon by the TMC. It didn’t take long before Danteria became as wanted as her brother.
Before long Danteria felt the galactic police breathing ever so closely down her neck. She decided to lay low for a while, choosing the planet
Earth to hide herself. By sheer coincidence, she picked the mountains of Montana to land her spacecraft where she was captured by the
Omega Team. At first, they interrogated her, believing her to be a spy, but it soon became apparent she was not of this world. Redfire found
her fascinating and invited her to stay with them. Before long Danteria earned the trust of the entire team accept for the paranoid Howard
Chase who envied the close relationship she developed with Redfire. A few months later, Redfire did something unexpected; he offered her
the mantle of leadership. He wanted to retire so he and his girlfriend Julie could marry and start raising a family. At first Danteria rejected
the offer, feeling she wasn’t up for the task. Later after successfully leading the team against their enemies, she agreed too. Now the Omega
Team is being lead by Danteria who is extending the teams status by having them perform numerous missions in the Ilta Quadrant which
has them often running into the TMC, but already countless worlds know the name Omega Team.

MOMENTUM

Becky Sharp grew up in Las Vegas the daughter of a stage magician Stephen Sharp (The Great Phantasmo). For most of her life, times were
tough for them. Becky’s mother, Lily, a Vegas showgirl died of brain cancer when Becky was ten. But it was her father who was the true love
of her life. He taught her most of the tricks of the trade, but it was her love of dice that really made her a standout. By the time she was
thirteen, Becky was a natural at a craps table even though she was very underage. When she turned fourteen, she was allowed to work
backstage to help her father. One night during a performance, her father was attempting to escape from a guillotine like device, when
something went wrong. The blade suddenly came down. Seeing it Becky suddenly screamed and the device stopped in mid-air. Her father
escaped the device unharmed but upon seeing the stunt the hotel immediately fired him claiming they didn’t want to showcase a
superhuman. She and her dad began to experiment with her powers. The trick became making it not look like she was doing anything so
they decided to sneak her into the audience. For a while, it worked and her father became a renowned escape artist/illusionist. At the age of
eighteen, Becky was getting tired of playing the “secret assistant.” Using a well-crafted fake I.D., she managed to sneak onto the casino
floor and start playing her game. She was wining a great deal of money until she went up against Alexander Valentine (Alex Pain). He
recognized the fact she was a mutant and decided to make her pay for cheating him. A few days later while her father was doing his famous
guillotine act, Pain was in the audience and used his illusion power to make it seem the blade dropped on top of him.
Everyone including Becky and her father thought he was dead. As a result, the emotional trauma put him in a mental hospital where he
remains to this day mentally scarred for life and unable to function in a normal everyday life. Becky soon received a letter from Pain
claiming he was responsible and that she should never cheat at craps again. Becky swore to get even. When Omega Team came to Vegas,
she sought them out and asked to be trained as a member. She lied about everything about herself including her age, history, wants and
desires, etc. The only thing she truly wanted was to be trained well enough to hunt down Pain. Redfire believed her and agreed to let her
join the team as the heroic Momentum. Within a few weeks, Redfire himself was beginning to feel a close bond with Becky, at the feeling
seemed to be mutual. Then an encounter with the Dane Brigade allowed Sapphire the opportunity to get up close and personal with Becky.
She knew the truth about her and her father, proclaiming it before Redfire and Doctor Vibrate. After defeating the Bane Brigade, Redfire
wanted answers. Becky revealed the truth about herself. Instead of feeling sympathy or compassion, Redfire felt only betrayal He expelled
her from the group and proclaimed he never wanted to see or her from her ever again. Now that Redfire has left the group, the question
some have wondered should Becky be allowed back on the team.

THOMAS DANE-Would be World Conqueror

The criminal mastermind known as Thomas Dane used to be a Demon Lord named Nybras. For thousands of years he was the chief
vendor of pleasures for the provincial rulers of Hades. He ensured whatever pleasures they desired would be meet. However, he grew
envious of those he served as their rank and status continue to grow, while his remain stagnant. Therefore, he made secret offers and
alliances with various Demon Lords in an attempt to put himself in a position of power. This infuriated the Ruler of Hades and he banished
Nybras for an indeterminate time to Earth. However, to add further insult he was given a humanoid body permanently paralyzed from the
waist down, forever confining him to a wheelchair. Police found the fallen demon lord naked and ranting about what the Ruler of Hades had
done to him. Thinking him a helpless homeless man, they took him to the Arthan Voorhees Psychiatric Clinic. There he continued to proclaim
himself a Demon Lord and that all should obey his demands. This led to solitary confinement and lots of drugs to keep him sedated. As time
went on several psychiatrists tried all sorts of therapy to convince him that he was a mortal man, and they nearly succeeded as Dane fell
further into despair. Then one day while sitting in his wheelchair in front of the pond in the back of the grounds, a duck perhaps sensing his
unearthly presence continually quacked at him. A boiling rage erupted from his lungs as he envisioned himself crushing its neck. Suddenly a
gigantic disembodied hand appeared and crushed the poor creature. Within a few hours Dane realized he’s regain only a tiny fraction of his
former abilities. Nevertheless, he believed they were more than enough for him to take over the world. Within a few weeks, he seduced his
therapist Crystal Deville, who became enamored with the idea of having power and ruling the world by his side.
He asked her to choose a number of psychiatric patients that would make good and loyal servants. Under her leadership, he sent them
to steal a secret book of magic out of the Pierpont Morgan Library. Reading the book provided the Demon Lord the instructions to perform a
black magic ritual; however, it also required the sacrifice of a dozen victims. Dane used several doctors and nurses from the hospital. After
completing the ritual, Crystal and the other psyche patients were infused with super abilities. Dane now used the hospital as his secret base
to launch his first plot at world domination. His first plan was to kidnap the President of the United States. The Omega Team was able to foil
his plan, but all the members of Dane’s Brigade managed to escape. Next Dane had the Brigade lay siege on the United Nations Building.
Again the Omega Team stopped him. Recently, he decided to use the black book to call forth an army of lesser demons to destroy
Washington D.C. Yet again, the Omega Team defeated him.
Dane’s remains a patient at the hospital and Crystal Deville is still his therapist. However, he’s become a model patient (although
everyone still believes him to be hopelessly insane) and he will continue to play the charade until it’s become a liability. With the
aid of Crystal (and his magical powers), he’s been able to conceal his and the Brigade’s criminal operations from the staff of the clinic.
Anyone who comes close to finding out the truth “disappears” (the hospital’s employment turn over ratio has increased since his arrival)
never to be heard from again. Note: Thomas Dane will attempt to align himself with any heroes to oppose Doctor Wilhelm Vilde to
prevent the forces of Dyval from controlling the planet Earth. Heroes should be leery, but open to the idea of
working Thomas Dane for the greater good

3 hours before needing recharging. The wheelchair needs only to be plugged in for 15 minutes for its batteries to be recharged.
The Book of Deuce: This medieval book of black magic not only provided Dane’s the means to bestow super abilities to his
servants, it also contain dozens of ritual spells within its pages. Dane can only cast these spells by reading them out of the book and
performs the ritual as instructed (must use the books P.P.E., not his own). For the purposes of simplicity, it’s safe to assume that all ritual
spells and spell incantations from levels seven and higher (must be cast as rituals) in Heroes Unlimited™ G.M.s Guide can be found in the
pages of the Book of Deuce. The book itself is indestructible. P.P.E.: 270. Performing blood/ritual sacrifices within 30 feet (9.1 m) of the

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
THE DANE BRIGADE

The Dane Brigade is composed of patients from the Arthan Voorhees Psychiatric Clinic. Every member of the brigade suffers from a
pre-existing mental condition or insanity. They are also criminals who were declared insane and not mentally responsible for their actions.
So to avoid having them incarcerated with hardened criminals, they were sent to the Voorhees Clinic for care and diagnostic services. Using
the Book of Deuce, Thomas Dane called upon evil supernatural forces to infuse them with super abilities. Although the magic turned these
low life thugs into super beings, it did nothing to remove their mental disorders. However, this is to Dane’s liking, because they are far
easier to control and less likely to betray him.
Crystal Deville, Dane’s therapist at the clinic, specifically chose each member of the brigade (they are all her patients). She knows
each of them well enough that even without Dane’s intimidating presence, she can get them to obey almost any request or order. She knows
exactly which mental buttons to press to get them back into line if they try to disobey or betray her and/or Dane. Even if she were not
Dane’s lover, she’d make the obvious choice as team leader since she is the only sane one of the group.

Note: The Arthan Voorhees Psychiatric Clinic is a voluntary facility that provides state-of-the-art mental health services and related
research and education programs for the New York University Medical Center. It provides diagnostic services and care for acutely ill
adolescents, adults, and the elderly. Specialty clinical programs have been developed to meet the needs of patients and families. Services
are offered for a wide range of diagnostic categories, including affective disorders, psychotic disorders and dual diagnosis. Few would
suspect that this facility harbors one of the world most dangerous super villains and his band of warrior who are ready and willing to do
whatever he asks.

Man I've been gone for a while based on the last post. During the Gen Con 2020 interview I brought this post up and reminded me time to do something heroish. Two weeks
of vacation I should be able to dig up or come up with something new.

Yeah folks I got a neck and lower back injury in August that made it nearly impossible to walk, stand, sit, and pretty much made me bed ridden. I'm now back to my old self and
wants to get something Heroes Unlimited posted. I had an idea in my head and now I just have to remember what I did with it.

Take your time, RW; good things come to those who wait, and we're willing to wait.
I've heard enough from spinal patients that recovery takes priority.

The idea factor is definitely back and working. Giving the current social climate in the country and the fact DC Comics FINALLY is suppose to bring Milestone Comics back and this
time with a supposed hands off approach, I thought I do something I have never done before, create a super hero team the Black Panther would be proud of. Look for it soon.

League of Civic Authority
LCA

The League of Civic Authority is a group of all African American super beings who meet whenever the need arises to protect the lives of those engaging in their right to
peaceably assemble, petition the government, and engage in self expression, speech, and religion. Furthermore, the group also protects residents, businesses, and personal/public
property when these extraordinary events/uprising take place. Should riot police engage protestors, the LCA tries to intervene to stop both sides from causing further harm to
each other. The LCA does not pick sides, but attempts to remain neutral, even though they are high motivated to see the social causes that bring about these gatherings to take
place (civil and political rights of all people, not just for super beings and African Americans), but all races, genders, orientations, national origins, color, political affiliations, etc).
LCA was founded by Captain Haunt, a former African Slave of the 19th century who received mystical bestowed powers by the goddess Mami Wata. After massive protests
took place in Century Station (Bloody Monday) and other parts of the United States from events involving super villains and police shootings, Captain Haunt decided to get
involved to make sure the just cause behind any social movement would be allowed to take place without escalating into violence and unrest. He also recognized something had to
be done to prevent “outside” criminal forces looking to take advantage of the situation in order to meet their personal agenda; super villains, anarchist groups, criminals, and
would use the protestors as cover while they engage in their criminal activity.
LCA is based out of Victory City, but the individual members live all over the country, and its core members only assemble when there is a need to do so. Should unrest occur
in Victory City or anywhere in the U.S.A., the group uses whatever their available means to gather together as quickly as possible to mediate with those on both sides, often
speaking with protest leaders and local (and state and federal) law enforcement, offering their services to ensure a peaceful assembly and the protection of members on both
sides, those protesting and members of law enforcement.
Unfortunately some law enforcement agencies in the country (notably Chimera in Century Station) as well as the heads of government agencies (G.I.G.M.A./U.S. S.C.R.E.T.)
oppose the involvement of the LCA, insisting their presence encourages rioting and the arrival of known super villains/terrorists. The organization S.H.O.C.K. on several occasions
has gone out of their way to target members of the LCA, more so than the super being(s) that triggered the protest march in the first place. LCA are not the only group of
Legionnaires to operate thorough out the country in this manner, but for reasons they cannot be explained, they often find resistance or are met with hostility and suspicion by
police and local authorities. The media coverage they receive is generally negative even thought the group provides aids to those on both side of the protest. The average citizen
in the U.S. doesn’t know how to react when the group makes their presence known, even thought the group clearly identifies themselves to the public as super heroes.
Because the group meets with resistance, it’s becomes increasingly frustrating on those in the group (those Unprincipled alignment) as to why they should continue as they
are, and they find strength from those Scrupulous in alignment wanting the group to support and take a stand alongside the marchers and protestors. However tose who are
Principled in alignment want to make sure the group doesn’t take specific sides and continues to walk the fine line of being a neutral participant interested in making sure nobody
gets hurt on either side of the argument. The organization known as the Jury has confronted the LCA on three separate occasions trying to determine if they are true super heroes
or at least untrustworthy champions pretending who abuse their powers and threaten or endanger society in large. Captain Haunt, Sphere, and Bankston Frazier have all testified
in front of the Jury. Certain members of the organization (unaware that the Judge is a gestalt) have tried to recruit him as one of their enforcers. Fortunately, the group has
earned the respect, trust, and admiration of notable super hero champions such as Sentinels of Liberty and Justice (Flagwaver is a big fan) and notable Legionnaires such as the
Valkyries (Bombshell is a huge fan), Watchguard (formerly known as Victory City Sentinels), G.I.G.M.A. agent Scott Benter, and of course Michael Veil of The Sector. Veil more
than anyone has pulled numerous strings for the organization, namely out of his guilt for how he treated his old friend and because he believes in their cause (as long as they
remain on the neutral line).

The LCA operates from Victory City in a 5 story low-rise building (bought and paid for by Captain Haunt), with additional regional offices in New York, Michigan, Georgia, Maryland,
Texas, Colorado, and California. The staff in all these locations is paid for by one of Michael Veil’s secretive government funding projects put in place 60 years ago, buried so
deeply nobody knows its exists or where the money goes.

AVTRAN HOVERVAN

Techno Shadow worked out a deal that he would “consult” with Avtran Technologies to help them with some of their “hovercraft mechanic” issues if they grant him use of one
of their latest hover van vehicles. Avtran took him up on the offer. To Techno’s dismay, the company is nowhere near what he thought they would be, essentially he is an inventor
of electric cars talking with the first automobile makers of the 1880s who are arriving in work on horses. The Avtran Hovervan to him is a Ford Model T, however it does what it
needs to do to gather members of the LCA in one location in a hurry. He’d “tinker” with it if he could but the Avtran folks have ways of monitoring every one of their vehicles.

Captain Haunt

Obeda Nidi was born in 1814 in what is now Sierra Leone (Africa). He was a rice farmer/hunter, was married, and had three children. He lived a life of contentment in his
village until one day in 1839 he and dozens of others were capture illegally by African slave traders. While imprisoned on slave ship, one of the women onboard began chanting to
the goddess Mami Wata, pleading for help. Nothing happened, but Obeda began to have strange dreams. One night he found a means to pick at his locks and free himself, but
instead of helping anyone else, he snuck out onto the deck hoping to find a boat so he alone could escape. He was spotted and immediately jumped overboard. He tried his best
to swim away but he was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Suddenly he encountered a strange mermaid-like creature, who grabbed him by his head and together they
disappeared to the realm of Mami Wata. Obeda does not know how long he spent with the goddess in her heavenly realm in the spirit world, but he believes most if it involved
god-size romance and passion (he is forbidden to speak to about the matter, not even psychic probes can reveal what took place). At some point she decided to let him go,
transporting him to the United States in year 1856 with dry fancy clothes on, gold and jewels in his pockets, and bestowed mystical powers.
While in New York, many assumed by his appearance that he was a freed slave, but nobody understand how he acquired his wealth and incredible good looks (his appearance
captivates many white women). Obeda endeavored not to use his powers unless he was forced to when a group of white men try to rob him. He ended up arrested and though he
could escape, he didn’t because he thought the Americans would send him back home. Instead he was to be tried and hanged. Luck cames his way when a lawyer/abolitionist Bert
Huffman decided to defend him. Huffman argued his case well enough, but it’s only when the judge gets pressured by a close associate of the U.S. President, Michael Veil, that he
rules in favor of Obeda. A few days later, Obeda learns that Bert Huffman and Michael Veil are one and the same person, an immortal who can alter his appearance and make
exact duplicates of himself. He has been secretly serving as an aid to every U.S. President (and many other important world leaders, people, etc) for well over a century. He fears
a civil war will come and wants Obeda to join forces with him in the hope of preventing the war. One of his duplicates Ronald Cooley teachers Obeda to read, write, and speak
English and trains him to be a spy (secret agent). Obeda is given the name Kadin Beaty. In 1959, he departs for the South.
Kadin spends time as a slave on numerous plantations working for various men of prominence. Using his powers when he can, he frees various slaves and using contacts of
Michael Veil in the Underground Railroad delivers them to freedom. Kadin does manage to provide intelligence to Veil and his associates, but they can do nothing to prevent the
South from succeeding or halt the start of the American Civil War.
Kadin enlists in a black combat unit for the Union. Using Veil’s secret influence, he gets promoted to sergeant and becomes the commander of 50 men. They participate in very
few battles, but in one he and his men successfully lead a charge that drives the Confederates back. Later with Veil’s assistance, Kadin is awarded a Medal of Honor.
When the war finally ends, Kadin departs for the American West and spends 20 years as U.S. marshal, arresting some 2000 felons and bringing them to justice. Whenever it
became necessary to disappear because of his long life, Michael Veil helps him develop a new identity, one always involved in law enforcement. This is how it goes until the 1930s
when Kadin meets with Veil demanding he do something he help “his people” gain the equal rights and liberties entitled to as white U.S. citizens. Veil sympathizes but informs
Kadin he has much more to worry about events in Europe and Asia. Kadid agrees but tells him he is only bidding his time. Kadin joins Veil’s legendary team of WW 2 superheroes
Team American Eagle, but never as a permanent member, only when the team engages in operation in North Africa or Europe. Kadin also finds himself at odds with the famed
superhero American Rocket and his junior partner Bullet Boy. After the war, Kadin demanded Veil do something about civil rights for African Americans but Veil was focused on
creating his secret organization G.I.G.M.A. to battle the Soviets.
For the next 25 years, Kadin works in the shadows of major U.S. cities helping African Americans fight injustice, racism, and intolerance. During this time he has zero contact
with Michael Veil. Kadin soon learns his time during the Civil War has turned into a Folk Legacy; stories are told in the African American community and by Civil War history buffs
about the mysterious black union solider that couldn’t be killed in battle, regardless how many times he was shot with bullets or stabbed by the enemy. Kadin decides to use his
legacy to be a heroic champion for his people. When the Civil Right amendment becomes law, Kadin gets contacted by Michael Veil to apologize and plead with him to join
G.I.G.M.A. (which later gets split in half and become The Sector).
Since 1968, Kadin Beaty has served as a team leader/drill instructor for The Sector and their many Super Operatives. While he didn’t necessary go on missions, his training
and discipline of Super Operatives has been crucial for the organization to function over the decades. In recent years, Kadin became increasing frustrated with so much unrest
happening in the African American community across the country. Kadin came to believe he wasn’t helping his “people” or fulfilling the “reason” Mami Wata gave him his powers.
Kadin also became aware that although he felt immortal, he was indeed growing older and would one day die for real. He decided he needed to do something to help his people,
as well as stand up for the same patriotic values he did as an agent of the Sector, but on the urban streets of Century Station, Motor City, and the rest.
Kadin quietly assembled a team of African American heroes he named the League of Civic Authority (LCA), whose duty is go to places of civil unrest, demonstration, protest, etc
and try to keep the peace and stop rioters, looters, and those intent on spreading chaos. He must do this without the backing of the Sector or any assistance from Michael Veil.
Kadin knows he is walking a very thin tightrope. He is trying to be a hero for his people and maintain law and order, and sometimes the two forces conflict and he must do
something to remind his team what their role is. When he sees crime, he will put a stop to it, but he often finds himself tormented by an inner conflict, the same one he wrestled
with ever since he jumped overboard and didn’t do right by his own people.

Techno Shadow

Techno Shadow is actually an alien from a planet of African looking humanoids called Odah in the Liloqua Quadrant of the Milky Way galaxy. Odah solar system has 3 suns,
which bathe the planet in constantly daylight (it’s perpetually daylight 24/7). Odah is also covered with vast vegetation (super thick bushes, grasses, shrubs, etc). There are no
trees. The Odhak achieved True Space Age technology 300 years ago. A century ago, they joined the FAR as peace-minded members. Then twenty years ago, scientists on their
planet discovered it was starting to dry out and would eventually turn into a desert planet. Efforts were being made to develop new ways to for them to live on their planet or to
trade technology with other races so they can find perhaps a new home world. Among the Odhak was Ahlwin, his father worked for the Space Military as a pilot and his mother
worked as a medical doctor. Even at an early age, Ahlwin like to tinker with things and he took great delight whenever his father bought him a new engineering toy to assemble.
In his teenage years, he went to school and designed his first hover platform. After graduating from high school, he went to the Orbital University, obtaining the equivalent of a
B.S. in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in nuclear engineering (allowing him to work on nuclear fusion drives for the nation’s large space craft in the military space
force and the fission drives in their space vehicles used to travel about their solar system. Odah however wanted to solve the planet’s current environmental problem with digging
for radioactive elements and destroying their planet’s vast forests. He developed a satellite capable of drawing power from Dark Matter in space. Later he found a safe way to
create Dark Matter on a planet’s surface and utilize it create nearly indestructible materials. The problem they can’t be seen or detected.
Ahlwin managed to create specialize goggles that allowed him to see Dark Matter and when he activated the device he managed to create and shape Dark Matter to his
specifications. After receiving international praise for his work, Ahlwin received word that a group of FAR scientists wanted him to reveal his device at a FAR galactic scientific
conference. Ahlwin packed up his belongs (and his hover car), said goodbye to his fiancée and family, and boarded a space cruiser to take him to the conference. What Ahlwin
didn’t know was the Atorians learned of his scientific discovery and wanted it for themselves. Hired mercenaries attacked the space cruiser. Ahlwin was convinced they were after
him so donning his Cosmic Darkner, he used it to create a Space Vehicle that he was able to load his hover car into and pilot away from the space cruiser. Unfortunately while he
was able to generate a space craft, Ahlwin could not make any oxygen or anti-gravity technology for his craft. He flew the Dark Matter vehicle into a gravity well hoping he could
make it another location. Unfortunately his Dark Matter craft lacked a Space Navigation computer so his Dark Matter ship didn’t disintegrate but flung him across the galaxy and
only by sheer luck (Pilot: Spacecraft) did he manage to avert a crash on a distant planet unfathomable light years away from FAR space. That planet was Earth.
Hiding his hover car, Ahlwin explored the planet he found himself on and quickly realized he was trapped on a primitive world with no means of getting back to his home
planet. He was also confronted by some good old boys, but thanks to his energy sword, he scarred them off. It was fortunate for him he was found by some college kids with ties
to the civilian alien group Reach Up. They took Ahlwin in and helped find a way to hide his hover car. Ahlwin spent his time with his college friends learning about planet Earth and
the United States when he saw Alpha Prime on television. He decided to make his way to Century Station hoping she would have the means to send him home. When he arrived in
Century Station, a massive riot was happening because CSPD killed an African American woman in her home because they believed she was harboring a criminal mutant (she
wasn’t). When a grand jury failed to indict the officers, African Americans and mutant right groups spark protest that turn into a riot by a dozen militant members of the Mutant
Underground and the Ebony Fist color punk gang (200 members). CSPD and many super heroes arrived but hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage was done to the
Silver City of Century Station, countless people arrested, and over 45 lives lost. Ahlwin was simply shocked and amazed at this sight. Nothing like it happened on his home world.
Why did peoples show hatred and aggression toward their fellow Earthlings just because of a difference in physical appearance or possessing super abilities? In all likelihood,
Ahlwin believed he was trapped on this primitive planet and there was no guarantee the alien Alpha Prime would help him get back home. She might even decide to imprison him.
Ahlwin decided until such a time he knew for certain she would be able to get him home, he might as well see if he could help these primitives find a way to live together in
harmony.
As he explored Century Station, it was by chance he ran into Kadin Beaty, Captain Haunt who was meeting with operatives with Sector 10. The two men struck up a
friendship and when they both revealed their secrets, they decided to work together to ensure nothing like what they witnessed in Century Station would happened anywhere else
in the United States, thus the League of Civic Authority (LCA) was born.
At least once a week, in the middle of the night Ahlwin flies up to the limits of the breathable atmosphere, and stares out into the void of space, wishing he could return to
the woman he loves and his home planet in need of rescuing. But this world, so primitive in its design needs his help too, and if he did find a way home, he couldn’t live with
himself if he allowed the kind Earthlings who took him in and gave him food, shelter, and clothing to fall into anarchy because they can’t seem to get along with each other. If he
can save these Earthlings with his brilliant intelligence, then he also knows for certain he can save his own people.

Real Name: Ahlwin Xaam
Occupation: Inventor, dark matter engineer, and entrepreneur.
Alignment: Scrupulous
Power Category: Alien Human (Odhak), Technical Scientist/Super Invention
Experience Level: 4th
Hit Points: 28 (+19 from Darkner) S.D.C.: 40 (+25 from Darkner)
P.P.E.: 21
Appearance: He looks like an African male human but he is really an alien humanoid from a vegetation world affected by perpetual daylight (opposite of twilight world)
because of its three suns. He has a medium build, with jet black hair in a frohawk hair style and dark brown eyes. He has to wear his special goggles since he is completely night-
blind.
Attributes: I.Q. 21, M.E. 19, M.A. 9, P.S. 14, P.P. 9, P.E. 14 (24), P.B. 12, Spd. 10
Age: 28, Sex: Male, Height: 6 foot, Weight: 165 lbs (74.25 kg)
Originating Alien Environment: Vegetation/Daylight World
Unusual Characteristics: Odha is bathed in perpetual sunlight, it never get dark, which makes all Odhak highly sensitive to darkness, anything less than 60 watts (700
Lumens) is consider dim, and 40 watts (400 Lumens) is completely darkness. He has to wear special radiant goggles if he wants to be able to see at night and often indoors in
places without adequate illumination, otherwise he is -8 to strike, parry, and dodge from being blind. On the other hand, he has perfect daylight vision, can see like a hawk (spot a
rabbit size target from two miles (3.2 km) away, provided he has a clear vantage point and he cannot be blinded by bright lights, not even laser, and laser based attack (or
magical lights) can blind him.
Super Invention: The Cosmic Darkner (Right Arm Band), A.R. 15 and 250 S.D.C. 7th Level. Major Super Abilities: Alter Limbs, Create Force Constructs/Create Force
Field. Minor Super Abilities: Shadow Molding and Healing Factor (special). Repairs: Expensive and time consuming (require advance engineering skills and other areas of
expertise).
Techno Shadow is the inventor of the Cosmic Darkner which has the power to create, shape, and manipulate Dark Matter, the cosmic form of matter district from all other visible
matter. Dark Matter does not emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and thus it is invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The device allows Techno
Shadow to create Dark Matter, condense it into a solid, tangible form, which he can shape into tools, weapons, and other items, create semi-living constructs, mechanized objects
and vehicles, and create a variety of geometric shapes and objects. These Dark Matter creations (Force Constructs/Shadow Molding) are “invisible” to all forms of electromagnetic
detection (including visible light, making them -6 to parry and dodge). Only Techno and those with Control Darkness, any Shadow, or Space Based powers can see them. Each
creation draws from the pool of energy (S.D.C) that comes from Techno Shadow’s physical body (2100 S.D.C.). Once all available S.D.C. is used in the creation of one or more
constructs, no others can be created, unless one of the current constructs is dispelled or destroyed (See Create Force Constructs). The Darkner can only “create” what Techno
Shadows knows, meaning he must be familiar with the shape and design. He cannot create imaginary devices or weapons. All items he creates appear in his hand or on the
ground beside him. If the device is not motorized, it can exist for 45 minutes without his constant contact. This includes simple, small items (max #12), or small, simple melee
weapons, large melee weapons (counts as two attacks), simple weapons with moving parts (revolver, pistol, shotgun, bolt action rifle, count as two attack), and large simple items
(rowboat, raft, ladder, table, chair, a wall, circle, dome, box, or bubble (count as two attacks). Note: All ancient weapons do the equivalent of their real world counterparts. Range:
Handguns and Short Range weapons, 170 feet (52 m), Shotgun, rifle, or projectile weapons, 440 feet (134 m), Damage: 4D6, Attacks per Melee: Each shot counts as one
attack/action, Payload: 6 to 12 depending upon weapon, Bonus: As per W.P. if any, plus +2 to strike, +1 to parry, +2 to disarm, +2 to pull punch with any Dark Matter weapon.
The Darkner can create motorized constructs (engines and motors) allowing Techno to make chainsaws, electric screwdrivers, drill, flashlight, sirens, etc) but besides the
S.D.C it costs, he also burns up one Hit Point for every two minutes (8 melee rounds) he uses it (Note: Healing Factor allows him to recover one Hit Point every 15 minutes, 4 per
hour). Because Techno is familiar with complex machines and motorized devices, he can generate semi-automatic weapons (Damage: 3D6 each, x2 for short burst, x5 for long
burst counts as two attacks) or two grenade/rocket type projectiles (Damage: 1D6x10 each, four foot/1.2 meter blast radius).
Creating a Dark Matter vehicle (Cargo Truck, Sports Car, Hover Car, Helicopter, etc) or an industrial machine (stamping press, cutter, conveyor belt, drill press, band saw,
etc) is possible because Techo has the “engineering” know how of, which means he cannot create anything he doesn’t know how it works, if its imaginary, or if he’s never seen or
studied it before. He’s seen and been inside a F-22 Raptor, he has never seen a Dassault Rafale (French Fighter Jet) even though they both use the same
engineering/technological principles. These Dark Matter vehicles are always half the size of the original, and no one but himself can operate/utilize the simple controls, and he
cannot create advance controls, avionics, radar, caltrops, radio, missiles (only the weapons stated earlier). Piloting these vehicles he must rely on his own vision and reaction
timing. For every two minutes of maintaining the vehicle, it cost him 1 Hit Point and they can travel 21 mph/33 km, it cost him 2 Hit Points if he wants them traveling 42 mph (67
km), and 1D6 Hit Points per minute (4 melee rounds) for all air/spacecraft. Making a vehicle also require he maintain direct contact with it AT ALL TIME. He also must continually
concentrate of maintaining the vehicle’s existence which cost him two actions per melee round, so he cannot perform various Vehicle Combat Tactics, Maneuvers, & Techniques
without losing concentration.
Player and G.M. Note: It’s important to remember Dark Matter cannot be seen/detected using the electromagnetic spectrum, and it’s been transformed into a solid, tangible
form. Use the Major and Minor Super Powers (see above) as guidelines for how the Darkner works. Use the Major super power Techno Form to provide stats for all Dark Matter
Vehicles.

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
Arthicide

Jametta has seen the world via mathematics as early as she can remember. Kids use to tease her all the time because of her strange eyes and her six fingers and toes, but
that never bothered her because she knew the probability was she would one day find acceptance from others. Regrettably her personality and quirkiness made it difficult to
develop friendship with her peers and she became a social outcast in school and her neighborhood in Ultropolis. Even family relatives didn’t know what to make of her, although
many wanted to use her amazing gift to pick numbers (the number game played mostly in poor and working glass neighborhoods) and play the daily lottery, church bingo, play
cards, or any other type of gambling. On her first day in high school, she witnessed a boy named Jashon being bullied by some older kids. She decided to confront them. One kid
went to punch her and she quickly countered the punch with relative ease, then punched him in the jaw and knocked him out cold. Another boy tried to hit her with a pipe. She
picked up two, twirling them in her hands expertly like fighting batons. The bullies fled but so did the boy Jashon. When she told her parents what happen, they decided to enroll
her in a private school. Yet even here, her view of the world in mathematical terms made her an outcast.
A few weeks later, Jametta learns that Jashon was shot and killed by a store owner mistaking him for a masked thief who robbed his store on two occasions. Unrest soon
occurs in the city. Protest rallies soon turn violent. Jametta and her family were among the friendly protestors and now found themselves fleeing from the violence. When looters
attacked the store owner shop, Jametta decided to stop them. She was witnessed defending the store on camera and using her amazing combat skills, fortunately she had her
face masked to conceal her identity. However, she was quickly found by Captain Haunt and Techno Shadow. While they recognized the fact she was legally a minor, her amazing
mutant gifts and youth could prove useful to their righteous cause (as long as she doesn’t miss too much school).
Jametta refuse to wear a traditional super hero costume (and chooses only to hide her face with a simple mask). Considering her appearance does not draw anyone’s
attention, she calculates the odds of anyone identifying her as slim. She doesn’t worry about facial recognition technology either. This however is a false assumption because
Jametta doesn’t really care if her identity is discovered because she’s bored with normal life and has calculated that she will never be accepted by regular people. She’s tired of
school and doesn’t want to deal with the tedium of college. She is ready to take up the mantle of a true super hero.

Real Name: Jametta Lewis
Occupation: High School Student
Alignment: Scrupulous
Power Category: Unstable Mutant
Experience Level: 5th
Hit Points: 27 S.D.C.: 30
P.P.E.: 18
Appearance: Jametta is a short, slim, curvy African American teen with natural black hair cut in a natural descending taper style. She has a round face on which she wears
circular glasses over her attentive green eyes. She wears casual clothes (always in jeans) regardless if she on a mission on not. To hide her real identity, she wears a simple mask
over her face and contacts.
Attributes: I.Q. 26, M.E. 15, M.A. 9, P.S. 9, P.P. 15, P.E. 13, P.B. 15, Spd. 10.
Age: 16, Sex: Female, Height: 5 foot and 8 inches (1.72 m), Weight: 118 lbs (84.6 kg)
Unnatural Characteristics: Bright Green Eyes, Ambidextrous, Six fingered hands, and Six toed feet.
Vulnerabilities: Nearsighted, she cannot see clearly more than one foot away (.4 m) away. Anything one foot (.4 m) away is completely out of focus and blurry, likewise
images of people, animals, vehicles, buildings, and surroundings are impossible to identify. Anything beyond 12 feet (3.6 m) is indistinguishable from the surroundings. Without
her glasses or contacts, Jametta is nearly blind. Penalties: Reduce all combat bonuses, attack per melee round, and Spd attribute by one-half. Lose two attacks per melee round
and reduce skill performance by -35%.
Major Super Ability: Tactical Mathematics (Special): Jametta can solve, measure, and calculate problems through numbers without using mathematical operations, but
through pure intuition. She not only understands all forms of mathematics, she perceives reality as a numerical construct and instinctively identifies the variable/quantum
possibilities in any situation. She can use her mathematics to anticipate possible obstacles/opportunities and know the best combat strategy to take in any situation, allowing her
to adapt and prepare for any future events in advance and considering all the scenarios, outcomes, options, paths, and plan ahead for them, to be ready for any situation that
may occur and handle it effectively. This super ability gives her the equivalency of the Major Super Ability Natural Combat Ability and all her Minor Super Abilities. Note: The
longer a single opponent choose to engage her hand to hand combat (after one minute/4 melee rounds), she gains an additional +2 to initiative, +2 to strike, and +3 to parry and
dodge. Only applies to one individual, not someone new who enters combat, unless she wishes to start over.
Minor Super Abilities: Heighten Sense of Awareness, Heighten Sense of Time, Living Anatomy, Extraordinary I.Q., Targeting, and Speed Tasking in addition to her
mathematical powers and skill bonuses.
Combat Training: Special.
Attacks per Melee: 8/9 (2 initial +1 from ambidextrous) + 5 from super powers +1 with any range/projectile weapon.
Combat Bonuses: (in addition to those she acquires from gaining her opponent’s hand to hand combat style): +8 to initiative, +1 to strike, +2 to parry, +5 to dodge, +3
automatic dodge, +7 to roll with punch/fall, +10 to pull punch, +6 to disarm, +3 to entangle, and +3 to Perception Rolls. Note: Whomever she engages in Hand to Hand Combat
or observes fighting, after one melee round (15 seconds), she acquires their equivalent level of hand to hand combat, combat bonuses, and combat skills/techniques (including
boxing, wrestling, kick boxing), added to her own (thus making her that much better than her opponent, she doesn’t add their additional attacks/actions per melee). She can only
do this with one person. When she encounters a person who is an unskilled fighter (non-combatant) or multiple opponents, she will be able to fight with combat style of Hand to
Hand: Expert equal to her own level of experience. Player and G.M. Note: She can only acquire her opponent’s hand to hand (or boxing, wrestling, and kickboxing) combat
bonuses/skills/techniques. She cannot acquire additional combat bonuses/skills/techniques from physical attributes or super abilities.
Saving Throws: +4 to save vs Horror Factor, +4 to save vs possession, +4 to save vs mind control, +4 to save vs insanity, and +2 to save vs illusions.
Combat Skills: Punch 2D6+6, Power Punch 3D6+14 (counts as two melee attacks), Elbow or Forearm 2D6+6, Knee 2D6+6, Kick Attack 3D6, Karate Kick 3D6+6, Jump Kick

place of dodge, can only use back flip bonuses 94%), Leap Attack (critical strike), Knockout/stun on an unmodified roll of 19-20, and Critical strike on an unmodified roll of 17-20.
Note: She can jump 10 feet (3 m) high or 15 feet (4.6 m) long, +50% with a running start. Remember she will acquire all the combat skills of her component (their hand and kick
attacks, special maneuvers, and training techniques within one melee round of engaging them in combat or observing them fighting).
Other Bonuses: +12% to all skills, +30% to all skills involving/or using mathematics or involves assessing the likely odds of success or failure (random chance).
Educational Background: High School Program with special intellect modifications. Note: She can pick up any weapon (ancient or modern) and perform with it as if she had
a W.P. with that weapon. +2 to strike/aim, parry, throw, entangle, and disarm. Her rate of fire (for archery) is 9. Increase range of projectile weapons by +50%. +3 to aim with
any Modern Weapon. +4 to strike/aim or throw range or projectile weapons.
Common Skills: Read-Write/Speak Native Language 98%/98%, Pilot: Automobile 87%, Sense of Balance 92%, and First Aid 98%.

Money: Whatever she earns working a “job of the moment”. Unfortunately because she often leaves her job early to help with the team or engage in various social causes,
she often calls off or leaves early, and ends up getting fired. However, her incredible mathematical powers guarantee she will be able to live off the stock market and/or become a
professional gambler. She has a dozen universities looking at her as well as government and scientific agencies. The Sector is hoping to acquire her services right out of high
school.
Weapons: She never carries weapons, as she can pretty much rely on anything to be a weapon or simple engage the person in hand to hand combat.
Equipment & Vehicles: She own a handmade smart phone designed by Techno Shadow. It has all the high-end functions, but can also work as a high-end compact
digital/video camera. The signal is scrambled making it difficult to detect, intercept, and interpret (requires electronic countermeasures to unscramble).

Sphere

Lyman Stevenson’s family was chosen to live in the “Home of the Future” in Motor City. Low cost housing in a futuristic building that the mega corporation Housing Horizons
promised would one day be the forerunner of the modern home within ten years from now. Instead of metal, wood, and masonry as the prime building materials, the house was
made of recyclable plastic reinforced with fibrous glass. Each room climate controlled to filter, cool, heat, and scent the air independently. Every electronic device in the house
voice activated, completely hands free thanks to an A.I. that controls everything. For comfort, flexible urethane foam for cushioning furniture and rugs. Best of all, each home had
its own power plant, giving the home owner independence from the nation’s grid. So the Stevenson family moved from their high unemployment, high crime, low medium income
neighborhood to those built by Housing Horizons. Home owners became employees of the company so Lyman’s mom, dad, and older sister and brother were given good paying
jobs as well. Things were great for 600 African Americans living and working in the new housing location. But what they didn’t know was Nestor Moss, the company CEO and
founder, was an evil man, an energy research scientist, with evil intensions. He used his billons to create Housing Horizons for the sheer purpose of mass eradication. The homes
in Motor City were his phase one trial. The power unit in each home was purposely designed to generate radiation that would slowly kill each and every homeowner (in 5-10
years) but not damage the environment or affect anyone outside the home. He called the housing units “roach homes” because that was their purpose. By the time all his housing
units done and did as they were set up to do, he would be living safely behind the protective wall of Malvador, the nation of the Usurper, were he would be living in luxury while
tens of thousands of African Americans all across the United States would be dead or dying of cancer. Unfortunately for him, the unit the Stevenson lived had a fault in its power
plant. The amount of radiation in 8 year old Lyman room was greater than normal and the experimental material in his bed stored the radiation and bombarded him with it every
time he slept in it. Within a week, Lyman complained off weakness, fatigue, and other cancer like symptoms. A day later, he felt his body burning. Suddenly he transformed into a
nearly eight foot giant with white skin and hair. He also had this strange ability to create a variety of energy spheres. When the truth came out, the FBI and the Sector went after
Nestor Moss. As for Lyman family and the 599 others living in the homes of Housing Horizons, they were doomed to die of cancer in 5-10 years. Lyman however was able to
control the transformations, but never fully able to control his powers. As part of the lawsuit, Housing Horizons paid for “real medical housing” for the African American families it
poisoned. Lyman was offered a position by the Sector, but he wanted nothing to do with the government agency. Lyman unable to look his family in the eye anymore disappeared.
Lyman eventually found his way into the Mutant Underground of Chicago, here he found sanctuary in a neighborhood where normal people shun them and the law turns a
blind eye to the inhumane goings on there. A neighborhood funded by the charities of others as well as a criminal underworld that supplies the poor misfits with booze, drugs,
guns, and anything else they want. Lyman went to a school of misfits and monsters like himself, not that many attended classes regularly but Lyman did and eventually
graduated. When he wasn’t in school Lyman hung out with a Mutant Street Gang called the Forsaken Syndicate, who routinely rivaled with their arch nemesis the Tiger Claws. At
some point, famed superhero and Mutant Underground leader Warhawk fought alongside the Forsaken Syndicate when Nestor Moss appeared wearing a high-tech exo-suit he
designed to destroy every single non-white person on the planet. His first target was the freak kid who foiled his plans. During the battle, Nestor Moss suit was serious damaged
and started to overload. Moss managed to escape it but just before the suit was about to explode, Lyman protected himself and Lyman with a protective force field. Warhawk
commented that Nestor owned his life thanks to Lyman’s self sacrifice. U.S. S.C.R.E.T. arrested Nestor Moss, and thanks to some fast talking/negotiating by Sector agent Captain
Haunt, members of the Forsaken Syndicate were allowed to go free, under one condition, that Lyman come work for the agency. Lyman agreed, but unbeknownst to everyone,
Captain Haunt didn’t want Lyman to work for the ultra-secret spay agency, he wanted Lyman to work for his organization, the League of Civic Authority to not only help
communities like the Mutant Underground but to defend all people from vicious brutality and violence. Lyman has remained at the side of Captain Haunt ever since.
Lyman is a classic loner who doesn’t socialize with people. He is tortured by the crushing loss of surviving the radiation that not only killed his family but everyone else who
lived in the Housing Horizon homes. He doesn’t think its fair and pushes people away by acting sharp and distant. However, he has come to welcome his new friends/family and
was able to spare the life of the person ultimately responsible for his family death. He views his powers as the means to protect others.

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
GOAT (Greatest of All Time)

Lamond Gover was born to do great things. He could pretty much perform and play well in any sport he wanted to by the age of six. His parents put him in sports and he
always excelled as the top athlete. By the time he was in middle school, he played like a professional athlete and was often criticized for hurting younger kids. By his senior year in
high school, he rushed for 2000 yards as a running back, hit 30 home runs in 25 games, was a three-time decathlon state champion, and set numerous records as a sprinter,
hurdler, jumper, and thrower. When he got to college, he couldn’t decide which sports he wanted to excel in so took to the ones he believed would give him financial security,
football and baseball, but he showed coaches he could do tennis, golf, basketball, and track and field with relative ease. He also began to do a lot in body building, working out to
make himself look utterly amazing. When he graduated from college, he had professional sports all clambering to sign him. He made a public spectacle of himself by having
himself tested to prove he didn’t have super abilities thus making him even more legitimate and prevent his enemies from blacklisting him from professional sports. He signed
with the Century Station Silverjacks (football) and the Reaction (baseball).
It was long before Lamond was making millions of dollars and excelling in both sports. But what no one realized that Lamond was addicted to gambling. In college his
parents had to send him money because he would be broke all the time. By the time he was a professional athlete he got involved with Century Station high rollers, willing to play
for almost any stakes merely for the competition. He got involved with Steven Dull, an expert gambler and professional criminal. When Steven Dull was capture by the Centurions
(having failed in his bank robbery caper) he told the D.A. that he had evidence that he would be willing to share for a reduced sentence. He revealed Lamond Gover owed him
$3.75 million dollars and he ran an illegal gambling ring, which is likely the reason the Silverjacks lost their seemingly destined champion season. The NFL and MLB investigated
Lamond gambling habits and found him guilty of numerous offenses. He was arrested, tried, and sent to prison for 5 years and ordered to pay $20 million dollars. He of course
was utterly disgraced and became the most hated sport figure in U.S. history.
After his release, he was placed under home confinement. Days later, he met with Captain Haunt who offered him an opportunity to improve his reputation and help out the
African American community. Lamond was willing to do anything to get his life on track. At first he had a difficult time teaming with super beings, believing they were “genetic
freaks” and “cheaters” while his abilities were all natural, having trained his body to function as the maximum limit of the human condition. In time, Lamond began to recognize
that regardless of skin color or the presence of super abilities, people treated “what they labeled” as other different because of assumptions rather than as a person first and
foremost. It’s a long road of recovery for Lamon but he’s getting there little by little.

The Judge

The Mega Hero known as the Judge is the mental gestalt of two regular people Denique Tyler and Bankston Frazier. When Denique was 17 years old in Victory City, her older
(Barrell) brother was the fame Victory City Legionnaire superhero Black Rhino who kept his super hero identity hidden from his family. Unfortunately he made some enemies with
a group of corrupt police officers and a fanatic district attorney Deacon Crowe. Deacon was able to learn Black Rhino’s real identity thanks to some informants (who were later
killed). When Barrell and Denique were walking down the street, the corrupt police officers drove up, surrounded him with their weapons drawn and ordered him to get on the
ground. Barrell and Denique complied but Barrell refuse to comply and voice his mistreatment, demanding to know why he was being arrested. But he received no response. As
Denique cried and yell at them to stop, an officer put her in choke hold. This got Barrell angry and he began to toss the cops off him like rag dolls. An officer unloaded on him with
their armor piercing rounds at point blank range. Even Barrell super powered endurance and resistance to injury was no match for the attack and he died on the sidewalk. His
death and the treatment of his sister lead to massive protest not only in Victory City but across the country. No one however knew he was a celebrate superhero, nobody but
famed civil rights attorney Bankston Frazier. He speculated Barrell was not the typical death of a black man by the police, no there was something else going on here. Nobody
talked about the A.P. rounds that killed him, for the corrupt cops and D.A. knew if anyone learned this evidence it would reveal they knew Barrell was Black Rhino. Bankston and
Denique’s family however would not go away quietly and they would demand justice.
After several weeks of peaceful protest, Deacon Crowe arranged for the riot police (most of them members of the corrupt police) to have access to a new chemical gas, one
that would affect the rioters in a way that would invoke despair and sorrow, they would surrender without a fight, making it easy for the police to make hundreds of arrests. On
the day the chemical gas was to be used on the protestors, Denique and Bankston were leading the crowd. When the chemical gas was deployed by the police, someone had also
fires a few canisters of tear gas. When the two chemical mixed together, it caused an unforeseen chemical reaction. The protestors suddenly collapsed on the grown convulsing
and thrashing about wildly as if having severe epileptic seizures. This affect was happening to everyone including various news media personnel and could be seen on fallen
cameras and cell phones. Hundreds of people were completely incapacitated by seizures. Denique and Bankston however were holding hands when it happened and for reasons
unknown, their minds instead of seizing merged together and created a living being (a resurrected Barrell, a pure mental creation of Denique and Bankston, a combination of the
two, his ghost, or something else entirely?). This being appeared to be a large African male dressed in the robes of a judge wearing a domino mask. He possessed tremendous
psychic powers and physical strength and the will to dominate the minds of weaker men. The Judge made the corrupt confess their crimes and implement Deacon Crowe. He then
disappeared.
Deacon Crowe and a few corrupt cop underlings would not disappear quietly. Because they knew Barrell was a mutant they decided his sister was one too. The group made
plans to capture Denique and use any means necessary to get her to admit her “mutant” powers create the gas and likely the entity the Judge and they would put her confession
on social media. However, Deacon never got the chance to do any of that because his organization ran into Captain Haunt and his League of Civic Authority who had recruited
Denique and Bankston into their ranks. The Judge made Deacon Crowe confess all of his crimes which got him sent away to prison. He is currently incarcerated at Gramercy Island
(Bedlam). As for Denique and Bankston they are trying to continue their regular lives while remaining semi-active with the League of Civic Authority.

idealistic young African American woman who wants nothing more than to do well and change the world for the better. She continues to mourn the loss of her brother and wishes
she could reveal his true legacy instead of him being famed for being murdered by white, corrupt police officers. In school, she was a two time state champion gymnast, and on

Bankston Frazier

What most people don’t realize is Bankston Frazier is more than a civil right attorney they see on CNN and MSN. His African American mother was wrongly convicted of a crime
and sentence to prison, all because his white father could not afford a good layer to help her. The experience made him resolved to pursue a career in law, to help the
downtrodden and racial discrimination. After graduating at the top 2% of his class with an undergraduate degree in history, he earned a graduate degree from the Copernicus
University in Century Station. He then went on to law school at UNC (University of North Caroline) and then on to Victory City University Law School where he earned his Masters
of Law (later on he earned his Ph.D.). A few years after he began his private practice in Victory City, he earned successful victories in court with clients winning lucrative lawsuits
against the city. In the midst of one of his trial, a group of individuals decided to bomb his house, killing his fiancée. The bombing received a great deal of national television and
newspaper coverage, but those responsible were never brought to justice. He left his private practice and went back to teaching in UNC. He wrote several important books and
articles but didn’t want to make any more court appearances. It wasn’t until he started to follow the trial of involving famed Century Station lawyer Albert Taylor and his defense
of Samantha Charles that he decided to return to practicing law. When he read about what happen to Barrell Tyler, he decided to get back in the game of things. He is thankful for
Denique because she has made him a better person. She reminds him of his fiancée Lisa, and her words and idealism continue to play at his heart.

knows it’s location and the participants. If a man murdered his wife 9 hours ago, the Judge can do nothing to the man. He can’t physical touch him directly or indirectly, nor can
he use any of his abilities on him. If the evil man intends to kill a person, the Judge cannot do anything to him until he commits the crime. However, if his henchmen kidnap a girl,

Hmm I think I can make the TMNT type characters happen. An idea came to me based on a new slot machine at work.

You can mix the Mutant Animals with a Special Training type like a Pleasure Bunny/Stage Magician,Dog/Super Sleuth and so on.

It would be very nice to see you expand your own ideas into full-fleshed characters, Gaby. You seem familiar with the material, the tools and material are readily available, and I strongly suspect that you already have some ideas where you want to take the Rifter material that you favor. Saves you the uncertainty of waiting to see if others adopt your ideas. Create them and post them for peer review, and I think you'll get much more involved feedback on your efforts. That way we not only have Reagren astonishing us, but we can also get to see what Gaby's been cooking up all these years.
:bandit: Come; time to tell your tales around the electronic campfire. :)

I agree. Why not write up your own pleasure bunny/stage magician and dog/super sleith?

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
While there some parts of Matt's Optional Material for HU that I like, it makes HU way more complicated (difficult to remember stuff) for me. Meanwhile, you asked for some
mutant animal with special training. These two should fit the bill just nice.

Tiger and Ox (Mutant Animal Duo)

Tiger and Ox were two animals owned by Jijll (Old Man), the Jonin of the Kagemusha Ryuujin Clan (15th level Mega Villain Ancient Master). He kept both animals in a barn
(in Japan) and supposedly drew strength from them when he practiced his martial arts training and techniques. However, as he would unleash his positive energy (Chi) and
because he was committed to performing acts of evil, he never realized his energy slowly leaked into the two animals, slowly changing them over a decade. One night during a
thunderstorm, Old Man was confronted by his arch rival Iyetsu Fukami (11th level Ancient Master/Sumo), leader of the Pan-Pacific Action Alliance (PPAA). The two engaged in a
“friendly” competition. The two men struck at each other using both their Chi-Blast. The explosion sent energy into both animals and transformed them both. Tiger and Ox
escaped their cages and were pursuit by both villains henchmen. Tiger and Ox manage to escape aboard a freighter bound for Hong Kong. When the freighter arrived, they
manage to sneak out without being detected. While hiding on the dock they ran into an old man selling traditional Cantonese snack wrap with hard sugar and coconut inside a
white wafer slice. Despite their terrible disguises he took them into an alley and made them hide in a building. The man was Zhuan Guanting (12th level Dedicated Martial Artist).
He told them he had a dream that he would instruct two students all that he knew but he never imagined they would be mutant animals. Zhuan spent the next decade teaching
both his martial art styles to Tiger and Ox. One day after scrounging for food, they returned home to find Zhuan dying from a confrontation with a mysterious American. He told
them he taught them all that he knew the next part of their journey was up to them. He then passed away. Tiger and Ox found clues to the person responsible for their master’s
death was an American. Tiger and Ox went to the Honk Kong International Airport and snuck aboard a plan that eventually arrived in Victory City.
While searching around in Victory City, the duo ran into those who helped out with the Mutant Underground. They were taken in and given shelter. They explained their
situation (someone who spoke Chinese/English) and the mystery American. Those in the underground told them they would help them but first they needed to be at least taught
how to live and work in America. Members of the Mutant Underground taught the duo skills that their master could not teach them, but at the same time these members of this
faction was disassociated from the main Underground movement because they were far more fanatical about stopping any bio-tech industry, government, or anybody involved in
the creation of super beings, mutant, or new life form. Ox was far more influenced over their motives then Tiger (because of his domestication). However, he could not be
persuaded to become a terrorist. Tiger and Ox left the group to continue on their search across the country to find the man responsible for killing their teacher. They do whatever
they can to seek aid from kind and friendly humans and those align with benevolent morals like their master. The journey has put a strain on the good nature of Tiger (she can get
a bit more violent and brutal against those who threaten her or good people in general), but she remains the trusted, loyal, and safeguarding friend of her Ox, despite the fact she
tells him all the time she wants to eat him. Ox is well aware Tiger enjoys eating all kinds of meat (especially steak) but doesn’t take it personally (she is a tiger after all) because
he knows Tiger will always be there for him and he will be there for her. Sometimes though, she needs a head-butt to clear her head when she starts acting irrational.

I agree. My players and I don't like making characters that are that complicated.
I like Tiger and Ox. Are you going to do up stats for the Ancient Master character you mentioned as well?

The two Ancient Masters I mentioned are actually already on this forum. But since they are some of my earlier creations here they are.

JIJII (The Old Man)

He is legend among the assassin community. Some do not believe he is a real person, however
that is the way Hiromasa wants his reputation to stay. He prides himself in his anonymity, and
freedom it provides. Although it would appear he lives in retirement, spending most of his time
fishing and riding his bike, he does on occasion check up on his Chunin to see how they are
doing, when he does so, he never announce his presence. He merely watches, and should he
notice failure or weakness, he will unleash his wrath upon the Chunin and all within the clan.
sometimes when he visit, he will accept an assignment if the target is intriguing or
challenging enough. None have ever live to speak of an encounter with him. Having learn of the
success Hitomi has gained in Century Station, Old Man has decided to see the city for himself.
Who knows what he may do or who he will kill when he arrives?

Age: 73. Sex: Male. Height: 5 foot, 9 inches (1.79 m). Weight: 135 lbs (60.75 kg)
Achilles’ Heel: He maybe one of the most dangerous individuals in the criminal underworld,
but he is extremely nearsighted. He must wear glasses or contact lenses if he wants to see. He
does all that he can to make sure no one learns about this flaw.
Mega-Abilities: Standard plus Awe-Factor (16).
Special Abilities: Feign Death 98%, Cleansing Spirit 98%,Positive Energy, Channel &
Unleash Physical Energy: Range: 112 feet (34.13 m), Damage: 3D6+30, Minor Super Ability:

to the supernatural. Provides its owner a +1 to all saving throws. It has a +1 to strike/parry.
The owner is able to parry energy/projectile attacks with a -6 penalty.
Vehicles and Equipment: He has the resources of the entire clan at his disposal but he
allows his Chunin to decide what sorts of equipment and weapons are available in the city in

THE PAN-PACIFIC ACTION ALLIANCE (PPAA)

This high-tech criminal group is also well versed in martial arts forms (Physical Training). They
operate from a single command base, a stolen U.S. Navy Sturgeon class submarine. The sub was
being sold to Japan by the U.S. but came up missing somewhere in the middle of the Pacific.
Since then the PPAA has used it to hold up freighters, yachts, and cruise ships in the middle of
the ocean. Presently the U.S. Navy is still attempting to locate these criminals, and so is the
Sector. When the ship was sold to Japan (for 320 million), the ship not only maintained several
torpedoes, submarine rockets, and deep water mines, but still had one HARPOON missile on
board. So far the PPAA have been content with being pirates of the Pacific Ocean, but there is
a growing fear that at some point they will threaten to use the Harpoon against another nation
(possibly the U.S.) unless they are paid a hefty ransom. Other claims they are not entirely
concerned because they feel as some point the ship will require an expensive reactor refueling
operation, making it necessary for the PPAA to surrender. Because their base is a U.S. Navy
attack submarine, it’s rather difficult to locate these criminals. If anything, they make
themselves known first by their actions. The PPAA is led by Iyetsu Fukami, who has no problem
with using the armaments of his ship against civilian targets.

IYETSU FUKAMI

As a former Sumo wrestler, Fukami commands respect with his physical presence. Along with
those who run the ship, he also commands thirty-four shadowy warriors who continually trained
to turn their bodies into finely turned fighting machines. Iyetsu has been investing all the money
stolen and plans to start up his own bank. His goal is to retire with one trillion dollars. Presently
he is sitting pretty on 500 billion, which makes him not only one of the richest criminal
masterminds, but one of the richest persons on the planet. And he won’t stop until he has even

different style of hand combat, but they all emphasis agility and speed. They are the ones who
sneak aboard ships, dispatch the crew, and remove the valuables, usually with the owner

THE BEAST

Model Type: SSN-683
Class: Sturgeon
Crew: 15 officers (not including Ityetsu Fukami) and 32 crew hands (does not include the
thirty-four Kubikiri.
S.D.C. by location:
Torpedo Tubes (4)-100 S.D.C. each
*Bridge Tower-1500 S.D.C.
*Main Body-3500 S.D.C.
Armor: 15. Stops pistols and rifle rounds (Penetration Value of 7+).
*Depleting the S.D.C. of the bridge tower or main body destroys the ship’s structural integrity,
causing it to sink. There are more then enough flotation devices and life rafts to accommodate
everyone on board, but these are only useful if the submarine is surfaced! If the vessel sinks
below 1900 feet (1900 m) the pressure will crush the submarine, killing everyone inside.
Absolutely no survivors! Anyone exiting the sub at depths beyond normal lung capacity without
special deep-sea diving gear will suffer the bends and die.
Speed: 28 mph (45 km or 25 knots)
Endurance: 60 days before needing to replenish supplies
Maximum Depth: 1900 feet (600 m)
Statistical Data:
Draft: 28.8 feet (8.77 m)
Beam: 32 feet (9.7 m)
Length: 302 feet (92 m)
Displacement: 4,460 tons surfaced, 4,960 tons submerged.
Power Plant: One S5W Nuclear Reactor
Two steam turbines, 15,000 shp, one shaft
Weapon Systems:
Torpedo Tubes (4): Range: 25 miles (40 km), Damage: 3D6x10, Blast Radius: 30 feet
(9.1 m), Speed: 63 mph (101 km or 55 knots), Depth: 3000 feet (914.4 m), Search and Attack
Depth Setting: Minimum 60 feet (18.2 m), Maximum 4500 feet (1371 m), Rate of Fire: One at a
time or volleys of two, three, or four, Payload: 16 (four for each tube). A full melee round/15
seconds is required to reload a single torpedo, Bonuses: +3 to strike (guided)

Submarine Rocket (SUBROC): Range: After breaking surface/25-30 miles (40-48 km),
Damage: 4D6x10, Blast Radius: 40 feet (12.2 m), Rate of Fire: One at a time or of volleys of
two, three, or four, Payload: 8 (two for each torpedo tube), Bonuses: +3 to strike (guided). A
full melee round/15 seconds is required to reload a single SUBROC. Note: These are ejected from
the torpedo tubes, once it clears the ship, a solid fuel rocket motor ignites coming out of the
water. These are to be launched to attack targets on the surface.

Submarine-laid Mine: Range: Touch, Damage: 2D6x10, Blast Radius: 20 feet (6.1 m), Rate
of Fire: One per minute, Payload: 10. The mines explosive depth is determined by a cable-
measuring device. When the preset depth has been determined, an electrical signal is sent to
an explosive device which locks the cable to prevent further payout. Mine will fill with water and
neutralize itself should it become separated from its cable before reaching its program depth.
Once it reaches it dept, the mine is released where it waits for an unsuspecting victim to touch
it.

Systems of Note:

Passive Sonar: Range is 10 miles (16 km). This system collects all the background
noise in the area which must be sifted through to detect enemy vessels. The sonar can track 30
different targets and identify 100 different vessels from their acoustic signature, like American
and Russian submarines.

Active Sonar: Range is 50 miles (80 km). A system set to locate targets by bouncing
sound off objects and vessels. It gives away the submarine’s position, however, and is thus
rarely used. Can also track 30 targets and identity all of the same vessels as the passive
system.

Targeting Computer System: All of the information collected by sensors is sent to
central combat computer that possesses information and feeds a target solution to the fire
control sub-system.

World Wide Communications: A sophisticated combo package that includes directional,
wide-band, and all radio frequencies, and satellite systems (GPS). To use any of these systems
the submarine must release a radio buoy or rise to a periscope depth (about 100 feet/30.5 M).
For intra-ship communications there is a telephone system and public address system.

Full Environmental System. There is a 60 day air supply
Stealth System: Measures have been taken to reduce the noise made by a sub’s system
when it’s underway. There is a -10% penalty to vehicles, robots, and human operators using
sonar to make the sub’s sonar signature undetectable.

Acoustic Decoys: Launched from mini-torpedoes tubes amidships, the decoys broadcast
an acoustic signal designed to mask the submarine’s signature and confused incoming torpedoes.
(50% chance to deflect normal torpedoes). Decoys can be launched two at a time, and
reloading the mini-tubes requires one-melee. The sub normally carries 20 decoys.

Dry Deck Shelter (DDS): This is a submersible launcher hanger with a hyperbolic chamber
that attaches to the ship’s Weapon Shipping Hatch. It’s purpose it to allow for the covert
insertion of the Kubikiri. The DDS also provides a practical means of delivering the Kubikiri due to
its size, capabilities, and location on the ship.

Note What about the Harpoon? I leave that for G.M. to decide.If you choose to include it in your adventure.

Comment: The greatest part of the writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. - Samuel Johnson, 1775
First a little background. In 1989 my cousin Marco and I along with Vincent, Shawn, and Damien created Hardline Comics, these were going to be cutting edge comic books with
superheroes and other science fiction stories. Marco and Vincent are master artists, if you know Palladium artist Charles Chuck Walton, their stuff looks that good. Marco is a artistic
prodigy. He was offered a position to work for Disney (that's how good of an artist he was). At the time we were heavily influenced by Japanese Anime/Manga and we wanted to tell
super hero/science fiction stories in comics just as good as theirs. Our initial comic BIO Marco and Vincent completed all the artwork, ink, pencils, lettering, and so on and we were
shopping it around. If my memory is correct Issue #2 and #3 we're also done. My job was basically to take all these characters the guys created and give them detailed background,
explain their powers, and work on the overall BIO plot. I also was working on my own stories since I have zero artistic ability. One of the characters I created and wanted to tell
stories about was a character who inhabited the BIO universe but in the distant past when the UNSF (United Nation Security Force) was in its heyday going around capturing and
canistering all super beings. That character was Special Agent Scott Benter (Rifter #64). Scott at that time was an amalgam of Hunter (the cop from the tv show of the 1980s), Tom
Baker's Doctor Who, and my own sensibilities at that age. Scott had all his trademarks his yellow coat, the Vintage AMC Pacer, eating mixtures of Jelly Belly jelly beans, and the GASP
gun which at that time was the fire gun to be able to canister people. You basically shot this ray that turned people into biological soup and then you stored them in these canister to
imprison them. You could reverse the process and the person would be just fine just locked in suspended animation. Scott was feeling guilty at the time over what he was doing.
Questioning everything. Making enemies within the system and so on.

Unfortunately a family tragedy occurred with Marco and Hardline fell apart. We never got a chance to make our vision come to life. It want to say like a year or two later Milestone
Comics came out. I use to lament that could have been us and I still dream of the what could have been all the time.

Anyway I still had all these characters and stories I created and no artists to do anything with. So I retooled everything and created my own personal comics/concepts I called Power
Comics (all my super hero stuff). For those who read any of my Heroes Unlimited stuff posted here and in Rifters #33, #42, #64, #66, #69, and MAYBE one day in a Heroes
Unlimited sourcebook you are seeing "parts" of that comic universe I created in the 1990s, merged in with the Heroes Unlimited material. I never got to fulfill the dream of being a
comic book writer, but I have become a novelist and got stuff public of course published by Palladium Books.

Scott Benter is still my favorite fictional/super hero character from that era along with one other but that character is now apart of my dark fantasy novel writing. Scott has evolved
over the years (the psychic powers is actually a recent and edition). I love to write about him and his quest to remove guilt he feels about his past and the morality of the job that
he's doing. Scott borderlines the novel/short story writing line because its the only way to tell his personal stories. If I could I'd spend the rest of my life writing Scott Benter stories
professionally if it paid my bills. Right now though I enjoy the marriage I've given him with Heroes Unlimited. The following bad guys are a few of the weird cases Scott had during
his comic books days and I reimagined them for the Heroes Unlimited setting for you all to enjoy. They are sympatric villains you can mess around with. They could very easily turn
into very powerful bad guys so enjoy these guys are usual folks.

SCOTT BENTERS’ SEVEN RED FLAGS OF ULTROPOLIS

The following is the official list of Red Flag Watches that Senior Special GIGMA Agent Scott Benter (see Rifters #33, #64 and other short stories that I’ve written) calls the most
dangerous super beings in his home city of Ultropolis. These super beings are not only incredibly powerful, but Scott has decided they must be spared from incarceration at Gramercy
Island and kept out any SCRET Holding Facility (See Rifter #33). The reason he gives is they are not “evil” per say and the guilt they express over their “crimes” makes them worthy
of being watched to ensure they don’t use their super abilities unlawfully. However, Scott still had to file GIGMA paper work on them and send it to GIGMA’s headquarters Richmond,
Virginia to be stored at the G-Lab database, the United States ultimate source (background check system) for super beings (both criminals and lawful registered individuals). Scott’s
paper work on these 7 individuals is missing some key details about their super abilities, and he’s included as much vagueness as he can get away with. The most important thing is
they are red flagged meaning he denotes they are extremely dangerous and not other GIGMA agent should approach them or risk being killed. Being red flagged doesn’t mean they
are criminal or oppose a threat to a lawful society, it means these seven individuals are to be fearful and must not be approach or agitated by the presence of law enforcement,
mutant recovery teams, federal agents, corporation, etc who might be trying to apprehend or arrest them. These seven are very untrusting of everyone ACCEPT Agent Scott Benter
(and maybe a select few of his contacts/associates). Scott as a GIGMA agent has every right to authorize them as red flags under the old administrative guidelines and because he
has Alpha Black Security Clearance (the unofficial highest levels of U.S. classified information, more so than the U.S. President of anyone else in any of the three branches of
government or military) because of his lifelong appointment as an Agent Zero in the US Secret Service (Presidential Detail). Current GIGMA Director Theodore Rains and the
two men who run US SCRET, Army Brigadier General Kevin Drysdale and Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Grover Ridge are not happy about it, but as the mandates
and laws of GIGMA/SCRET cannot be official changed without Congress approval, there is little they can do about it.
Scott unfortunately is so busy traveling the country that he doesn’t spend enough time observing/monitoring all of his watches, especially these seven he red flagged in his
hometown. As such these seven individuals spend a lot of time being unobserved which could potentially get them into trouble for various purposes that a G.M. could introduce in an
adventure scenario. Scott does have some contacts in place just in case things turn sour that he will notify him as quickly as possible. This means Player Characters will run into Scott
as a NPC and he might have to work with him to solve the issue or the other way around. Scott will do what he can to put things right so his red flags can continue living their lives
without government oversight as much as possible. He will attempt to persuade player characters this is also for the best, and if he must, he will use his super hypnotic suggestion to
“mind control” players into doing this for him. If he has no choice he will terminate the red flags but only if there is no other options. The problem is some of his red flags he’s not
sure if that is even possible.

Lenny Burks

Lenny Burks mother Pamela Burks was a strung out junkie/street person. She never turned down a chance to get high. It is believed she likely injected an experimental drug
into her blood stream causing a mutagenic transformation in her unborn child. When Lenny was born, it became quite apparent he didn’t feel any pain or could be harm in any
fashion. Lenny was invulnerable. Despite effort to stay clean and sober to raise her son, Pamela fell back to her old habits and with Lenny able to go without food or water far longer
than normal people didn’t help any. One of Pamela love interests was Alex Rickey Wilcox, a pusher and two-bit hood. He became fascinated in the way Lenny couldn’t be hurt. He
also noticed Lenny was slower than normal children. Whether or not she noticed it or not, Alex began abusing Lenny who never felt any pain nor did he “feel” wrong about what was
being done to him.
Alex worked for criminal mastermind Jaquan “Machette” Durando and his crime family, and accumulated a lot of gambling debt. Unable to pay it back, it was decided Alex
needed to be taught a lesson. Nobody realized days earlier, Pamela told Alex to get out of her house and to leave her and 12 year old Lenny alone. Pamela was really trying to get
her life back together (it is not known if she ever learned the truth). On Christmas Day, Lenny and his mom were in the living room opening presents when their house exploded.
Everything was destroyed accept for Lenny who remained unharmed. When the police arrived, one came up to him to see if he was okay. The moment he laid a hand on Lenny, he
let out a scream, releasing a dimensional energy burst that also transformed all the metal nearby into glass, which in turn destroyed two fire trucks. After a while, U.S. S.C.R.E.T
arrived and believing he lost control of his powers and killed his mother. Lenny was eventually apprehended and put into Suspended Animation at a Maximum Security S.C.R.E.T.
Holding Facility called the Sphere.
For ten years scientists and doctors closely monitored him, then one day Doctor Wilhelm Vilde learned about his existence. He sent the Black Eagles to retrieve him. They and a
small group of Dire Harpies and Deevils laid waste to the compound. Hours later, G.I.G.M.A. special agent Scott Benter and a group of teenage Legionnairs arrived on the scene to
find several demonic troops searching the wreckage for survivors to kill. Scott and teenage group of mutants confront the lesser deevils until the Order of the Three arrived. After
destroying the deevils, Lord Arcane explained to Scott the importance of Lenny and what kind of threat to the world he could impose. Lenny was taken to the town of Centralia,
Pennsylvania where Doctor Wilhelm devised a Chaos Generator to be powered by Lenny that could uses his dimensional powers to open a permanent dimensional portal to Dyval.
Lenny was given the Milk of Power to enhance his powers which increased and further destabilize his powers and control over them. Scott, the Order of the Three, and the teen
mutants attacked the compound. They defeated the deevils, rescued Lenny and destroyed the device. Doctor Wilhelm escaped along with many of his underlings. Most of the teen
mutants were killed. Lord Arcane did a bio-scan on Lenny and realized that Lenny he was nearly bursting with dimensional energy that could take decades to bleed off. He theorized
if Lenny died any other way except natural causes 30 or 40 years from now, his death would create a potential permanent dimensional rift to Dyval. He doesn’t think Lenny should be
placed in suspended animation because it does not assure he will kept safe or that Doctor Wilhelm will find him again. Scott swears to Lord Arcane that he will look after Lenny and
will take him some place safe. Lord Arcane agrees but says he will check on him from time to time.
Scott takes Lenny to the Royal Citadel in Ultropolis, a 60 story building that serves as a city-in-a-building concept,” mixing shopping area, entertainment, restaurants, hotel,
office building, convention center, bank, post office and even a full blown aquarium, theme park and planetarium all into one massive building. Scott doesn’t realize the building is
built on top of a ley line nexus. The site original was a prison known for a long history of abusing prisoners. Scott paid for Lenny stay and for adult services to come and take care of
him. He vowed to come see him at least once a month and give him Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Regrettably, Scott numerous responsibilities and case load prevented him from ever
checking on Lenny who hard work and personality made him the one of the environmental technicians/grounds keeper for the building.

Real Name: Lenny Burks
Alias: Hell Flux
Occupation: Maintenance Man/Grounds Keeper for Royal Citadel
Alignment: Scrupulous
Power Category: Unstable Mutant (experimented on by Doctor Wilhelm Vilde)
Experience Level: 7th
Hit Points: 96 S.D.C.: 171
P.P.E.: 108
Appearance: Lenny is a normal looking male who doesn’t engage in any exercise. He has hooded azure eyes. His fine, curly, long hair is the color of chestnuts, and is worn in
a precise style. He is very tall and has a lean build. His skin is china-white. He has bushy eyebrows and long-fingered hands. He wears clothing more akin to be worn by a 10-12 year
old.
Attributes: I.Q. 6, M.E. 14, M.A. 11, P.S. 16 (superhuman), P.P. 12, P.E. 15, P.B. 9, Spd 14.
Age: 22, Sex: Male, Height: 6 foot and 1 inch (1.85 m), Weight: 189 (85.05 kg)
Unusual Characteristics: He is very pale, but not so much that he looks unusual. Power Lock (Alter Dimensional Fabric). Lenny is unable to turn this power off. It is constantly
on as a result he always loses 1 action/attack each melee round.
Vulnerability: Gases, drugs, chemicals, poisons, toxins, diseases, and radiation will harm him but the damage, duration, effect, and penalty is one half, poison, radiation, and
disease cannot kill him. He is vulnerable to psionics, spell magic, magic illusions, magic weapons, and attacks from supernatural beings. Supernatural P.S. does half damage.
Particle Beams, if Lenny is struck by any type of particle beam weapon/attack, it does double damage direct to his Hit Points. Should his Hit Points reach zero, Lenny will
disintegrate but leave a permanent Dimensional Portal to Dyval in his place. Damage done to him from particle beams heals back three times slower than normal. If Lenny should die
before experiencing a natural death in his late 80s or more, he will also create a permanent portal.
Autistic Mutant Savant, Lenny has permanent learning, communication, and social disabilities. He has the mind of a 5th grader, however he can still do “adult” things with a
skilled expertise such as sculpting and whittling, fixing things that are broke. He is a masterful carpenter, able to build anything from a bird house to complex woodworking and
furnishings. However Lenny can can’t perform some of the simplest of daily tasks, cook for himself, buy the tools that he or even to dress himself properly to go out in public. One
might find him in his woodwork shop naked until someone comes along to help him pick out his clothes and help him remember how to put them on. But he knows which detergent
is the best to remove tough stains fast. He’ll clean an entire house from the top to bottom, even the air ducts, toilet, underneath the sink, beneath the refrigerator.
Major Super Ability: Dimension Energy Absorption, Lenny has the ability to absorb dimensional energy and utilize it in various ways, to make himself physically invulnerable to
conventional injury, release an energy attack, create a doorway portal and/or dimensional pocket. Because he lacks the intelligence to do so, Lenny would have even more abilities.
Lenny super power gives him the following Major Super Abilities: Invulnerability, Energy Expulsion: Dimensional Energy (special), and Alter Dimensional Fabric (1200 feet/365 m).
Note: Lenny’s Alter Dimensional Fabric power is constantly weakening reality around him. He cannot control or regulate this power in any manner nor can he strengthen the
fabric or sense any change to the dimensional fabric. Lenny has no control over the random events that occur whenever he uses his dimensional energy blast. The range of all
dimensional effects is increased by 50% and they last 50% longer and all dimensional portals remain open 50% longer. Lenny cannot close the portals.
Use the following when rolling on the Random Dimensional Event Table:
01-10% Warped Reality affects a 60 foot (18.2 m) radius around Lenny, for two melee round (30 seconds) all creatures, vehicles, and objects are wildly distorted and
resemble something in a carnival house of mirrors. During this time, everyone in the area of effect is fairly helpless, reduce the normal number of melee attacks/actions and usual
combat bonuses by half, and speed by 75%. Anyone trying to shoot into the area from a safe distance will suffer a -9 to strike as the shot/attack is also warped or completely
dispelled. Anyone (including Lenny) entering the area while Warped Reality is in effect will be struck by the effect. While uncomfortable and disorienting, Warped Reality does not
physical damage living beings. In the Warped Reality all energy weapons, energy attacks/expulsions, and magical energy attacks will not work, psionic do not work, and anything
made of metal turns to glass (with 10 S.D.C. for each object). Everything returns to normal after 30 seconds (two melees) ends. (The rest of the table on Armageddon Unlimited
sourcebook, page 16-17) is the same, just remember the range of the dimensional effect is increased by +50% and they last +50% longer and dimensional portals remain open
50% longer, all on top of the fact there is a ley line nexus in the middle of Ultropolis).
Minor Super Abilities: Doorway and Dimensional Pocket
Combat Training: Non-combatant
Attacks per Melee: 2 combat action/attack per melee round/5 non-combat action per round.
Combat Bonuses: +1 to dodge and +1 to damage.
Saving Throws: +20% to save vs coma/death and +1 to save vs magic.
Combat Skills: Punch 1D4
Educational Background: Lenny is slow and rather child like (equivalent to a 10 year old)
Common Skills: Read-Write/Speak English 65%/71% (3rd grade) and Mathematics: Basic 40%.
Domestic Program: Housekeeping 72% and Sewing 80%
Secondary Skills: Physical Labor, Gardening 69%, Fishing 80%, Recycle 65%, Carpentry 60%, General Repair/Maintenance 80%, Jury-Rig 60%,
Streetwise 48%, Land Navigation 64%, and Whittling/Sculpting 70%.
Money: If Lenny needs anything, he has professional (adult care givers) people who take care of his daily wants and needs.
Weapons: Lenny will only use his super powers for self-defense, he will never directly use his power offensively or out of anger. Fear oh yes.
Energy Expulsion: Dimensional Energy, Range: 675 feet (205 m), Damage: 6D6 +50%, Triple the damage and triple the range, as well as triple the
duration of the Random Dimensional Event, whenever he is at a Ley Line Nexus, place of power, or Rift, Attacks per Melee: Counts as a single attack/action.
Note: Lenny has no control over his Dimensional Events, they will occur every time he uses this power.
Equipment & Vehicles: He has his state I.D. since he doesn’t know how to drive. What equipment he does have are basic tools to do his work or household chores.

Trashman

The entity known as the Trashman does not have a true “origin” story but Senior Special GIGMA Agent Scott Benter has been able to “piece together” various circumstances
which he believes account for how this legendary super being came into existence. Fifty years ago, Dan Riley owned the Ultraopolis Junkyard where broken down car ended to be
scrapped and salvaged. Some super villain known as the Rapid Racer had one of his demolished super vehicles towed here to be disassembled. This occurred without SCRET
awareness otherwise they would have taken the vehicle to one of their Holding Facilities. When the car arrived at the junk yard, the owner Dan Riley looked under the hood and
realized he could make a small fortune with all that he saw. As he began disassembling the car, he was unaware that Racer has installed a special safety feature. At some point, this
feature was triggered while Dan was underneath the car causing it to explode. Dan’s body was blown to bits. However, possibly do to the fact a ley line runs through the junkyard, or
maybe it was the strange experimental battery in the car (maybe even both), Riley’s human essence survived as a disembodied spirit but alas trapped at the junkyard unable to
leave the area. His mind began to suffer as he couldn’t communicate with anyone. His sons took over the business and quickly began to make changes that he didn’t like,
nonetheless there was nothing he could do about it. Then one day his eldest son Curt showed up with several people involved with the organized crime family the Syndicate. During
the meeting, Curt got knocked out and the enforcers put his body in the truck of a car and put inside the car crusher. Dan was desperate to save his son but lacking physical body he
could do nothing but watch helplessly as the machine was crushed with his son inside. His anguish turned to rage and from that a host of rats appeared. These rats attacked the
members of the syndicate, biting and clawing them to death. One enforcer started shooting them with his assault weapon and the rats united together to form a living entity, a
physical body for Dan Riley. Dan’s body had the impressive influence over the scrap, junk, and debris throughout the entire junkyard. He used it to kill all the enforcers. For a while
Syndicate keep sending people to the junkyard, and each time they would all die. It wasn’t long before people began insisting the junkyard was haunted but as usual such talk is
typical in Ultropolis.
Years passed and the entity known as Dan Riley grew more powerful but less attached his family. They sold the business but every time someone tried to take down the sign,
they would be “killed” in some sort of tragic accident or drive insane. So it was always said to keep the sign on the name or else, one would anger the spirit. Rufus Haley the current
owner is an odd man and the one who when he first saw Dan gave him the name Trashman. When crime boss Anthony Lorenzo showed up one day to investigate what happened to
his father, he tried to “torture” the truth out Rufus only to end up confronting the Trashman. Anthony barley managed to escape the auto yard with his life. He decided to contact
GIGMA agent Scott Benter to investigate the area. Scott talked with Rufus and realized he was indeed hiding something. Scott could sense some kind of protective, malevolent
presence in the yard. During his confrontation with the Trashman, Scott withstood the Mind Trap and realized what Trashman was, he then informed the entity that he was not here
to harm anyone just make sure no more innocent lives were lost. Scott told Anthony the truth an advised him to leave the auto yard or he would share the fate of his father and
dozens of enforcers, hoodlums, and underlings the Syndicate keeps sending there. As of now Anthony Lorenzo is leaving the Trashman and the Riley Auto Yard alone, but he still
vows revenge against the thing that lives there. Scott has filed a report on the place with the G-Lab warning that GIGMA/SCRET agent should avoid the place at all cost.

Real Name: Dan Riley
Occupation: Entity of Riley’s Auto Yard
Alignment: Aberrant
Power Category: Gestalt (Animal)
Experience Level: 9th
Hit Points: 29 life essence/spirit S.D.C.: 700 gestalt body
Armor Rating: A.R.: 12 gestalt body
P.P.E.: 30
Appearance: His natural existence is a life essence/spirit. His physical body is composed entirely of rats.
Attributes: I.Q. 10, M.E. 9, M.A. 8, P.S. 24 (superhuman), P.P. 17, P.E. n/a, P.B. 9, Spd. 15 running, 30.8 mph
(49.5 km) in flight as a spirit. Note: His physical attributes can only occur when he has his gestalt body.
Age: 50, Sex: Male, Height: 7 foot (2.13 m), Weight: Unknown
Vulnerability: His physical body can only be created twice per 24 hours period. If it is destroyed, he must wait
12 hours before making a new body, with a maximum of two bodies possible per 24 hours. Once both bodies are
destroyed, he must wait 24 hours to make a new one. He will die (true death) if he doesn’t make a physical body
within 72 hours. He begins to lose his memory after 20 minutes of not having a physical body. The physical body
can be maintained for three days before it starts to deteriorate.
Cursed: Trashman is bound to his auto yard. Neither his essence nor gestalt body can leave the place. If anyone
takes something out of the auto yard, Trashman can follow them up to one mile (1.6 km) away before the invisible chain
that tethered him to the auto yard stops him from going any further. There is nothing that can be done to undo this vulnerability.
However, his ability to summon rats does extend beyond the physical boundaries of the auto yard.
Natural Abilities: Ethereal being, Summon & Command Rats, and Alter Physical Form.
Animal Psionics: Mind Trap (No I.S.P. cost). Mind Trap is without question one the most vicious psionic attacks capable of any psychic
character. A bizarre combination of Mental Illusion and Insert Memory that attacks the mind of the victim, making them experience an artificial
reality (for 2D6 minutes) of whatever the user desires. This reality has the same effect as dreaming only far more real and powerful and the
person is fully awake. Maintaining the false reality for the user is relatively easy as long as the fantasy is simple and the effect does not have
a traumatic outcome on the victim. Because the artificial reality takes place in the victim’s mind, he can see, hear, feel, smell, and taste whatever
he’s experiencing. For Example, if Trashman places a victim inside a locked steal cage, the victim suddenly find himself locked in a cage. One minute
a hero could be approaching Trashman, suddenly he’s trapped inside a 48-inch (1.21 m) animal cage. A terrible side effect of the mind trap is for
every minute the victim is subjected to the false reality, he experiences one hour of subjective time. In other words, in the hero’s mind, he thinks
he’s been locked in a cell for 10 hours when in reality he’s only been in the cell for ten minutes. The initial use of this psychic attack counts as a
single melee attack, plus it only costs the user one attack per melee round to maintain as long as the environment and effect on the user is relatively simple.
The saving grace is if the victim makes a second saving throw against psionics (the initial roll is use to see if the victim can resist the mind trap attack
in the first place), he realizes this experience is an illusion, a false reality, and nothing can hurt you. The downside is it doesn’t help you escape the
mental illusion, but the passing of time is less distorted (seems like ten minutes for every one minute of real time within the trap).
Because the psionic attack affects its victim on both a conscious and subconscious level, regardless what the victim does, his subconscious mind
does not allow anything to alter the false reality. Therefore, if a character possesses supernatural strength, he cannot bend the bars of the cage or
damage the cage in any fashion. If he tries to fly out of the cage, instead of flying straight up (which he should be able to since the cage only exists
in his mind), his subconscious mind will only let him fly as high as the ceiling of the cage. If he tries to fire a super energy expulsion blast at the
cage, in his mind he sees himself release the energy blast (nothing happens to the cage), but at the sub-conscious level the power is never
activated, thus in the real world he just stands there with his hands outstretched with nothing happening.
Meanwhile, while the victim is subjected to this false reality, his companions in the real world can do nothing to affect the situation that is occurring
within his mind. The victim might even see them standing outside the cage, screaming and yelling that there is no cage. Yet if they manage to convince
their friend the experience isn’t real (i.e., he makes the second saving throw), it doesn’t help him get out of the false reality. Hence, the reason it’s
called a mind trap. Fortunately once the victim realizes the experience is a complete fantasy he’ll not suffer, any lasting effects.
Trashman delights to torment his victims in complex, twisted, delusions that attack a person’s sanity. These experiences differ from the simple
mentally generated environment (1) The victim is removed from having any sensory interaction with the real world. (2) The fantasy ALWAYS occurs
in the salvage yard involving a maze like experience through tens of thousands of junk cars and towers of broken appliances. (3) The victim
ALWAYS ends up in a car crusher or scrap metal shredder. The experience is so traumatic and mentally upsetting that the victim himself can
be driven temporarily insane. Because this attack requires so much out of Trashman, he loses all melee attacks and movement (user cannot move,
fight, or speak) for as long as the fantasy he is inflicting on someone remains in place.
Major Super Abilities: Junkyard and Dismantle Machines
Combat Training: Basic
Attacks per Melee: 6 (2 initial +4 from Hand to Hand)
Combat Bonuses: +1 to initiative, +2 to strike, +3 to parry, +3 to dodge, +11 to damage, +2
to roll with punch/fall, +2 to pull punch, and +1 to disarm.
Saving Throws: As an ethereal being, he is impervious to all physical and energy attacks,
only harmed by magic, magic weapons, and psionics. His gestalt form is impervious to possession, +2 to save vs psionics & mind control,
and +3 to save vs Horror Factor.
Combat Skills: Punch 2D4+2, Power Punch 3D6+2 (counts as two attacks), Elbow/Forearm 2D6, Knee 2D6, Body Flip/Throw
2D6 plus P.S. damage bonus (lose initiative and 1 attack/action), all Holds, and Critical strike on an unmodified 19-20.
Educational Background: Street Schooled
Common Skills: Read-Write/Speak English 48%/97% and Pilot: Automobile 87%
Street Skills: Streetwise 70%, Prowl 75%, W.P. Knife (+3 to strike, +4 to parry, +4 to throw), Tailing 80%,
I.D. Undercover Agents 86%, Find Contraband 62%, Recycle 85%, Salvage 80%, and General Repair/Maintenance 90%.
Secondary Skills: Hand to Hand: Basic, Basic Mechanics 95%, Auto Mechanics 97%, Basic Electronics 85%, Jury-Rig 80%,
Appraise Antiques 75%, Mathematics: Basic 98%, W.P. Blunt (+4 to strike/parry), Whittling & Sculpting 75%,
W.P. Improvised Weapons +1 to strike/+2 to throw, Wilderness Survival 45%, and Outdoormanship.
Money: Money means nothing to him. He values only the things in his salvage yard.
Weapons: He relies on his super abilities and anything that he can get a hold of to be used to destroy intruders.
Equipment & Vehicles: Sitting on 3 acres of auto scrap, junk, and salvage, Trashman has a few thousand cars, trucks, etc to
choose from (not that he drives any). Besides vehicles the scrap yard has appliances, metal bed frames, and just about
anything else made of metal.

Laughing Skull

Doctor Arthur Burch was a master at molecular physics and wanted to change the world by making it possible for humans to teleport from one location to another. He dedicated
his life to this belief and making the technology possible. His beloved wife Penny shared in his vision and did whatever she could to see his dream come true. When Penny started
experiencing sharp abdominal cramps, vomiting, and weakness, Arthur took her to the hospital where it was learned she had an ectopic pregnancy. Doctors wanted to operate
immediately but Arthur was convinced he could save his wife and his unborn child. He would teleport the fertilized egg out of her fallopian tube and into an artificial womb he
developed that would allow his unborn child to continue developing. What Arthur didn’t know was Fabricators Inc (specifically the Fabricator himself) recognized his teleport
technology nearly mirrored their own. His research could not be allowed to continue so efforts were made to discredit and sabotage his research. While doctors pleaded with Arthur
to let them do what had to be done to save Penny’s life, Arthur was determined to save them both. When sickened Penny stepped into the machine, both she and her unborn child
where disassembled and remerged together at an atomic level becoming an entirely new entity inside the artificial womb. Arthur didn’t know this and believed he teleported his wife
into some random location. He spent weeks searching for her, while still taking care of his growing child in the artificial womb. When the child was seven months old, Arthur was able
to extract DNA from his unborn son and discovered the truth as to what happened to his wife. This drove him completely mad and he took his own life. His research and his unborn
son was given over to his assistant Kane Robbinson.
When the child was removed from the artificial tomb, to the horror of everyone in attendance, it had no flesh or skin on his head, just its skull. Kane Robbinson wanted nothing
more to do with the freakish creation and believed it ought to be destroyed. Those sponsoring Arthur Burch’s teleportation research vowed to look after the child. Years would pass
the freakish child would move from lab to lab, until the corporation fell into bankruptcy. Morris would find himself in a foster family who worked as professional clowns in a traveling
circus. They only wanted Morris to be used as part of their sideshow attraction, the Skull Child. While living at the circus, a young Morris began to learn how to be a performer/clown.
He honed his talents in an effort to earn acceptance and not just be the freak at the circus. Around the age of ten, he developed his Pseudobulbar affect (PBA) as well as his unusual
super abilities.
When Morris was 16 years old, he could no longer tolerate being seen as a freak of nature. During a live performance a man in the crowd said all kinds of terrible thing to him.
Morris grabbed the man and teleported himself over to a spot where the man would materialize inside a tent pole. As the audience screamed and fled in terror, Morris delighted in
the panic before teleporting away. For the next couple of years, Morris spent a life on the run, hiding from GIGMA/SCRET agents looking for him. Using his skills at being a clown, he
would go to traveling shows and circuses looking for work, anywhere to hide his face. It wasn’t long before he decided to turn to crime, however this time he did try to avoid killing
people.
Morris was sitting at his hideout looking at the stolen loot and cash he acquired and the henchmen working for him when he suddenly realized what good was any of it if he
couldn’t do anything with it. He then told his paid henchmen to leave before he killed them all. While sitting miserably watching the television, he watched a guy in the wheelchair
appear on a nighttime talk show and start telling jokes. This disabled person was actually a stand-up comedian who found a way to laugh at himself and at the world in large,
making people forget he was disabled. “If he can make a life for himself as a famous person well so can I.” However just at that moment, Senior Special GIGMA Agent Scott Benter
arrived at his hideout. Morris powers triggered, pinning Agent Benter against a wall. Morris apologized and insisted that he was going to turn his life around all he needed was a
chance. Agent Benter asked about the man he killed, when will he receive justice and how will his family be compensated. Morris told Scott to take the $280,000 he had lying around
and give it to the man’s family. “It’s not enough but perhaps it could do some good to ask for forgiveness.” Agent Benter understood guilt that Morris was feelings and agreed to do
as he asked, but also warned Morris that he would be watching him for a long time to make sure he stayed on the path of redemption.
A few weeks later after filing his red flag report on the Laughing Skull, Scott was watching a televised amateur comedian program and saw Morris Burch perform, he had to
admit the guy is funny and talented.

George Tweedle

George Tweedle’s dad Bert decided to buy some fancy fertilizer he had no idea the company that made the product, Terra Industries, a North American manufacturer and
distributor of agricultural fertilizers, was being investigated for two counts of corruption. Their fertilizers while having an amazing effect on vegetation were producing mutagenic
effects on children and animals after the vegetation was consumed. This of course was unknown to Bert Tweedle because he never paid close attention to any of that stuff. One year
later, his son George would come home dirty and/or covered in mud. George would insist he didn’t do anything to get muddy or dirty, but the earth for whatever reason would stick
to him. His parents refuse to believe it. One day while taking working out on the farm something spooked one of the horses. It came running at Geroge who suddenly held up his
hand and a giant first of dirt came out of the ground and calm the horse down. What spooked the animal was an automaton that looked like George only made out of mud/dirt from
the barn. George was a mutant. His father sought all sorts of means of curing his son, trying to stop him from mutating any further. Yet George’s hair (on top of his head and body
hair) turned green and his eyes yellow. His skin took on a strange leathery texture. George just wanted to take care of the farm and do right by his family but his dad insisted on
curing him and keeping him from being a mutant. Finally some scientists arrived and took George away promising to fix him. The scientists worked for a criminal Bio-Tech company
that acquired the tainted fertilizer and wanted to use it to create an army of mutant animals, but upon realized that could instead have a group of teenage mutants, the Elemental
Assembly. The company decided to use them instead after some serious brainwashing; George was one of eight teenage kids with elemental powers, Terra-Fiend. For a couple of
years, the Elemental Assembly served as an in-house team of enforcers, investigators, and “problem solvers” for the Bio-Tech company. Things were great until they caught the ire
of the Kenaga Corporation, run by Japanese Yakuza. They sent their own team of mutant eliminators that not only took out the executives and scientists of the Bio-Tech company but
eliminated the Elemental Assembly with George becoming the suspected lone survivor. George went into hiding and has been that way ever since, trying to avoid using his powers at
any cost. George also rededicated his life to living as a simple farmer. Years would pass. George would one day run into Aquawave, one of his fellow mutants from the Elemental
Assembly. His former friend tracked him down wanting them both to team up to take on the Kenaga Corporation, but George refused. Aquawave wasn’t going to take no for an
answer. Their conflict in the city drew the attention of Special GIGMA Agent Scott Benter. Scott and George managed to “permanently incapacitate” Aquawave. Scott thought about
turning George in, but since he owed his life to the man and understood his attempt at redemption agreed to let George be at peace. Nevertheless he did warn George he be keeping
a close eye on him. Even though George’s farm is just outside Ultropolis, his farm is technical in a sub-district (like Ulster of Century Station), so he very much falls under Scott’s
home base jurisdiction. George is also unaware that the Kenaga Corporation and the Dark Tribunal are looking for him.
