[Earth-B]Five iconic NPCs!
Face in the Water: Atlantican citizen with a mission and a purpose.
PL6/122pp. Real name is Aura Sherbook. Female Heavenshadow mutant. In addition to the 'standard' Heavenshadow suite of powers, Face in the Water
may teleport from one place submerged underwater to another place submerged underwater, as well as breathing underwater. In the water, Face in the Water's scalding heat aura inverts, becoming arctic cold.
Face in the Water is a citizen of Atlantica, a Hegemonic ur-city covering the entirety of what was once the American state of Hawai'i. Placeholder.
Face in the Water wrote:”I’m glad my home has made such a vibrant recovery! Seeing the devastation humans leveled on it was...AWFUL.”
the Greenery Man: A hope for the future.
PL0/6pp. Real name is Damien Whistler. Male strawberry-Leaf mutant. The Greenery Man is the most famous Leaf alive! This is for one reason: the Greenery Man has the power to vastly increase the number of Leaf sproutlings Leaf couples can have, by way of deep meditation and a friendly prayer. Also, once every month and a half, the Greenery Man may transform mundane plant sprouts into Leaf sproutlings!
As a result, the Greenery Man is in constant demand, and the Leaf race is slowly rebuilding its numbers with his help.
The Greenery Man is a deacon in Turning Over Anew Ministries!
Because of his immense importance, the Dream Moth has placed two Hegemonic Giants---a pair of identical twin brothers!---as the Greenery Man's permanent bodyguards! Placeholder.
The Greenery Man wrote:”We all must do our part to make our planet as wonderful as possible for everyone, not just mutants!”
Leopold Wynters: The treacherous underling.
Crunch Writeup: Here!!!
PL6/67pp. Male maharajah. Dr. Leopold Wynters
is the vile, cunning second-in-command of the Orbitals---despite not
being an Orbital himself!
Though he believes himself to be a Mentat and a mutant, in reality Dr. Wynters is neither: rather, he's a maharajah, a non-mutant psychic. As Mentats're all mentally ill, Wynters believes he is
mentally unstable, when, in fact!, he is not
Because he's not a mutant, Dr. Wynters is utterly immune to The Purity's anti-mutant technology.
the Orbital Man: Mad with power, crazed by isolation and bent on world conquest.
Crunch Writeup: Here!!!
PL9/223pp. Real name is Sandy Upminster. Male Benign Tumor mutant. The Orbital Man
was once a NASA astronaut, before his mutant heritage exploded forth and held him captive in Earth's orbit.
Few supervillains have dreams quite as grandiose as that of the Orbital Man's. A human-seeming mutant, the Orbital Man desires nothing less than to merge his slightly-out-of-synch memetic core with the Earth, below---catapulting the stranded mutant to genuine cosmic entity status! But that is only the begining...
A Supermanalogue, the Orbital Man is trapped in orbit around Earth as the very nature of his mutations demand it be so. However, there is a unique side-effect to this: the Orbital Man may grant a copy of 1/12th his powers to 12 non-mutant humans---creating the Orbitals! The Orbital Man himself loses no powers in the process, and can reclaim his gifts at a moment's notice. Furthermore, he's in constant telepathic contact with his Orbital minions!
This is due to the Orbital Man's unique condition: his soul---his memetic core!---is out of synch with his corporeal body, thus allowing him to flagrantly violate the laws of biological science. Hence his scheme: if he could meld his memetic core with Earth, itself, he would literally become the planet's soul and guiding sentience
Earth in the process!
Despite being a mutant, the Orbital Man is the Exemplar of Orbitals. Placeholder.
The Orbital Man wrote:”Serve me, and grow strong, for I am the STRONGEST of them all!”
PL12/230pp. Genderless ('male' personality) nephilim uber-brick. Normally, Warring Worm
is a genderless humanoid made of pure titanium; in the background forever lurks the Potentiality, a semi-sentient 'cloud' of so-called 'possibility steel' particles. Normally powerless, the Potentiality may be 'worn' by Warring Worm, turning the strange nephilim warrior into a metal-mimicking powerhouse!
