Thank you! Still engaged in that other project, which leaves me with no time to put together character builds and backgrounds, unfortunately.

Author's Note: Had an idea that wouldn't let go. Inspired by Jab's thread, and by a campaign seed in Masks Unbound ...

Fujion

Image

As with all popularity contests, any attempt to identify the most popular entertainer on Earth-Prime runs into the difficulty of finding a metric acceptable to all parties. In other words, it's doomed to failure. But it is quite possible that the man born Antony Campbell in Mississippi, a little more than thirty years ago, would be considered a leading candidate for that position. He suffers a bit for occasional comparisons to another dancer and singer, who died of scandal long before he died of medical malpractice, but Fujion simply smiles at such remarks, expressing only sincere admiration for that individual's artistic accomplishments and the hope that he can do just as well.

Those who've seen Fujion dance will swear that he can't be human, but some creature of purest rhythm brought to Earth. They're wrong, but right that he has something more than skill inspiring his moves. Fujion is probably the single most famous savant in the world, and is both a physical marvel and possessed of something beyond what is understood as perfect pitch. He probably could honestly claim to sing anything better than nearly anyone else, but generally just does his own stuff rather than that of other people.

In the course of his career, Fujion has met and even assisted many members of the Freedom League; even those who profess to dislike his music will admit that his willingness to lend his talents and money to charitable endeavors, in particular working to rescue and rehabilitate child soldiers, demonstrate a quality that's clearly heroic. He deals with being almost constantly in the public eye by being the icon almost constantly -- he doesn't walk, he dances; he doesn't speak, he sings. Very few people have ever seen him when he's not "on", and these universally respect his privacy by not discussing it. (One of them is Trouble, whom he taught to sing.)

Lately, Fujion's dreams have been troubled by a phrase of music that keeps recurring in them. It's not a pleasant sound, but the urge to incorporate it into his work is almost overpowering ...

I'm just waiting to hear how he disarmed a situation with a gang by showing off his dancing skills ;~)

Fun stuff Davies.

It may just be a personal choice on your part, but I'm surprised he has neither Skill Mastery nor Ultimate Check to ensure that his dancing is always top-notch (or, at least, never bad).

Considered it, decided that I don't like the idea of pairing either of those with a 'flavor' skill like Expertise. When he wants to do well with Fascinate, it's a Hero Point situation.
