Still an experimental build.

When the The Overseers made a bid for power one of the Heroes they took out first was GizWiz, a brilliant man with a stout heart and an unfortunate sense of naming things.

They'd shot him with an ensnaring device with Technological nullifying capabilities to neutralize his battle suit and dispatched the somewhat fragile man underneath, burying him under the remains of a concrete building. They didn't know that he was experimenting with a newly developed batch of nanobots whose cumulative induction fields powered the flight and some defensive capabilities of his suit. When the device keeping his suit dormant finally ran out of power the nanobots, instilled with a rudimentary AI with directives toward protection and support of superheroic endeavors, flowed from the cracks in the battlesuit, out from under the rubble, to search of some way to fulfill her directives - they sought out a new wearer.

The self-powered and self-replicating nanobots keep in a cluster where their cumulative movement fields can do the most good. Although capable of independent action, they are more 'comfortable' taking the appearance of whatever clothing their wearer expresses desire to be wearing, supporting the wearer in all their pursuits.

She thought she had a likely candidate in a street-level superhero whose paramour had been killed by criminals. This brilliant Psychology student used his education to begin striking fear in the hearts of wrongdoers. NICKIE offered help in this regard. They were partners until a head wound caused a sustained coma.

She is programmed to be self-sacrificing and tireless in their pursuit of justice. She is just looking for a new direction now.

{GizWiz designed a rudimentary mental interface to allow the nanobots faster reaction times to the thoughts and desires of the wearer. Unfortunately, that did leave the NICKIE collective open to mental influences}

Living Armor:
Interpose (Limited Half-effect, Limited:Wearer only, Extra: Continuous, Extra: Multiple attempts) [1pp]
{This 'power' represents NICKIE granting some degree of protection to the Wearer regardless. The Interpose in her Advantages means she can take the full brunt of an attack once but then can only half protect the wearer from subsequent attacks.}

Protection 13 [13pp]

Flight 1, Continuous, Subtle [4pp]
{The Suit is capable of minor flight and can move or hold up a user with its inherent strength (Max Load 200lbs), even when incapacitated. She uses this to keep the wearer from having to bear her weight so the effect is nearly undetectable}

AE: Communication (Radio), Area, Selective, Subtle, Precise pr 4

Points: Abilities4+Skills14+Advantages9+Defenses15+Powers108 = 150

Suit - As a suit, NICKIE will always delay until the person s/he designates as 'wearing' it acts, moving with the person. It will try to support the actions of that person.
i.e - She will ALWAYS Interpose and Aid Other on skill checks (Using her Jack of All Trades and Teamwork to try for a DC10 to give a +5 to Wearer's result).
Clingy – NICKIE has what could classically be called abandonment issues. It wants to be around a humanoid person.
Loyal - Like a puppy, the NICKIE suit forms attachments and sticks to them.
Inhuman – NICKIE doesn't understand human emotions even though its AI is programmed to try to respond to them.
GizWiz – NICKIE still regrets not doing more for GizWiz, she will feel responsible for his safehouses and inventions, especially if she sees him using them for immoral purposes.
Living Dead Man - NICKIE still feels affinity for LDM and will check on/protect him and his legacy when possible.

Age: A few months old, though the nanobot design is years old, always undergoing refinement.
Hometown: The battle-suited techno genius, Gizwiz, had established bases of operation in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia. The wealthy inventor felt this was the best way to do some good in the world (and field test his inventions). He came to Sapphire City to help out where he could in order to redeem the name of supers.
Family: Gizwiz had many inventions that could be considered brothers and sisters to NICKIE, but no familial bond exists between them.

Default suit form, unless requested otherwise or trying to blend in:

(But with full arms and full head hood)


or simply a dark cloud as the nanobots swarm.

Chaplain Benjamin Dixon was an Evangalist's Son raised in a Fire-and-Brimstone household in the Southern United States. He grew up hearing of Sin and his place in Hell should he stray from the Path of Righteousness. (There were a lot of capitol letters in his childhood).

He knew he was destined for a life of prosletyzing, evangelizing, and succoring the injured. That was, until his father saw him with a dazed look talking about what their neighbors were doing. That is when Pastor Dixon knew his son was consorting with demons. He began to berate his son for being a satan-loving sinner when, the scared 11-year old cried his denials and the Heavens answered.

With a mighty crack there appeared a 6-winged Seraph, shinig bright as the sun and pointing spear at the Evangelist. The elder Dixon fell to his knees. And the Angel relented. Though it would be many years before he could reliably act as conduit for the Heavenly Hosts, his father raised Benjamin knowing of a great role he has to play in the world.

His talents with the inspiring word and at medicine only reinforced this notion. When the Great War came about, he knew his calling was overseas so enlisted. He's been fighting the Central Alliance ever since. Codename: Benediction.

{The spear the angel carries is a holy construct that he can summon at any time, (thus not removable). He can wield it or throw it or cause the head to burst with a projection of holt light or a chorus of heavenly voices that causes all inside to be overwhelmed and distracted by the brightness and holy cacophony.}

{Chaplain Benny summons a palm-sized Cherub - an angelic being with 4 wings and multiple faces [Noticeable manifestation] that hides well [Subtle, hard to spot]. It scurries about while the Chaplain sees through it's many eyes and hears through it's excellent ears. It is a physical manifestation and can move small things, but is much more easily spotted (and attacked). Any damage to it prompts a Toughness save from the Father at +9.}

Flight 2, Attack, Area-Burst, limit - only as long as surrounded by Ophanim (6/25)
{I put it at limit since normal area-burst Flight, people could control their own Flight. Being tied to the Ophanim is a bigger limitation.}
Immunity Suffocation, Affects others, Area-burst, Quirk: inside Ophanim (5/25)
Immunity Cold Environment, Affects Others, Area burst, quirk: inside Ophanim (2/25)
{Chaplain Benny calls forth an Ophanim, a Throne of God. It is a pair of flaming, spinning rings studded with eyes that can trap or land on things with crushing force. It can also surround and protect a group of people, floating them through the air and shielding them from the rigors even high flight while coasting through the Heavens.}

Delusional - He really believes that these are Angels from Heaven doing God's Will. He believes his prayer and concentration are what enable them to take earthly form and enact God's Righteousness. When the Seraph especially is around he talks to it in Latin and hears its answers... in his head.
Hatred - Demon Summoners. Those God-forsaking Heathens need to relearn the Healthy Fear that the One True God inspires. Chaplain Benny will be all too happy to Explain it to them.
Christian holy man - he holds fast to the sacraments and vows he took and takes the scripture and bible seriously.

flynnarrel wrote:Viriella's story begins when a Gospodar woman is taken as with by an accomplished Ungol horseman. Dissappointed not to have a son, he raises his daughter to the ways of mounted archery and the soldier's life. The day that her mother found her spitting on a freshly swept floor the woman had had enough. She dressed Viriella as a young girl and took her to a Choosing they were having in the village where an Ice Witch was testing the girls for the Ancient Widow's Touch. Viriella's mother knew how rare it was but wanted to do something to counterbalance her father's crude influence. Viriella was taken away on the spot.

Throughout her forced apprenticeship and then training as a Maiden of Ice, Viriella swore to herself that she'd not forget where she came from and that she would stay true to her Ungol heritage. She suffered for it from the other acolytes but she told herself that her people had suffered far worse and survived and grew in strength. And, indeed, every time she was jostled while learning a tricky and dangerous application of Ice Magic, where any mistake could turn an unwary Novice to solid ice, she learned *that* much more control and strength.

It was at a rare Erengrad Caucus where Tzarina Katerin herself was in attendance, that the novices were invited to show what they could do amidst the diminishing rays of the Summer sun. There was much muttering when Viriella took the stage for every Sister had heard of the half-Ungol that threatened the purity of their Order. Even in the sun's full light, Viriella froze a nearby fountain solid, erected a substantial ice dome, and gave herself over to the Frostfiend's form... some of the hardest disciplines of the Lore of Ice. All on-lookers watched as, unbidden and without ceremony, her eyes turned glacial blue and her flesh grew pale. Everyone, including Katerin, could not help but be impressed.

The Tzarina put out word and found out Viriella's history there was some curiosity when it came to light that her father's mother was Hag of some power. Viriella became unwitting recipient of Katerin's patronage and soon doors of education opened to her. She learned of magical arts, not just of Kislev but of the Empire as well and trained in it's language.

Viriella Suricheck was recruited by the Tzarina herself to be her eyes in the Southern lands. Portents and signs have indicated an upheaval and danger of unspecified nature. The ripples of it are felt even up here. Viriella was chosen for her training with the Ungol Horse Archers and also for her excelling gift with the magic that streams from the very heart of Kislev. The fact that she was approaching Katerin herself in mystical strength was not lost on young Viriella and she suspects this is a way the shrewd Tzarina is ridding herself of a potential rival.

Viriella is to travel the Southern Empire investigating strange occurrences and determining what she can of the source. Katerin will contact Viriella routinely in dreams to receive a report. Viriella also knows that, should she perish, her spirit is bound to make one final report before it moves on to the afterlife. The fact does not comfort her.

Loyal to Kislev – Viriella is fiercely loyal to the land of her birth and its people. Insults to Kislev (maybe common in the Empire) will not go unchecked.
Outsider – Her facial features and accent mark her as Kislevian. Likewise, she may not understand cultural norms and could be seen as ‘uncivilized’.
Power Loss – Viriella must be able to gesture to access much of her magic.
Marked by power – Her skin is pale and cold to the touch and her eyes are the deep blue associated to Ice Witches for any who recognize the significance.
Cold-blooded – She is acclimatized to the land of snow and frost. Being in a warm environment will cause discomfort which she will bear stoically. Being in an extremely hot environment for a prolonged period of time could impose penalties.
Cult of Ursun - if it ever comes up, she is a follower of Father Bear and all his pragmatic teachings.
Distrust of Men with Magic - She's learned from an age even before the Lore of Ice that men playing with magic are likely to both corrupt the magic and go insane. She will watch male casters suspiciously for when their insanity takes them, and will not hesitate to use the Ritual of Pacification... or an arrow.

flynnarrel wrote:Tania Glimmerwing was one of the Fae Queen's own Handmaidens. When she was called upon by her queen to serve as ambassador to a monarch of the local Big Folke who claimed dominion just outside of their forest. Actually, he claimed the forest was IN his dominion but that was one of the first things to be sorted out. The Queen's instructions were quite clear - work within the interests of the Fae Folke and try to come to reasonable if not good terms with this ruling monarch.
She knew what her queen wanted. There were better diplomats within the Queen's court, but if she were sending Tania it could only be to have the sizes of her forces misrepresented believably, to have the King's castle scouted accurately, and to have counter-intelligence prepared. Tania would not fail Her Majesty.
Once she came to know the King, however, she became impressed by his valiance, forthrightness, and intelligence. She started to doubt her original mission. She told the Fae Queen of her doubts and Her Majesty dismissed her on the spot. It was only due to her years of good service that she wasn't killed on the spot. Exiled from the forest Kingdom of the Fae, and having no where else to go, she returned to the King. She told him everything and he offered to make a place for her at his court until such time as she another destination. Tania would be at his beck-and-call should he need her.

About Half Actual Size

It's a big world: Her size may limit how she can interact with the world.
Exiled faerie: The tale has been spread that Tania is no longer under the Queen's protection. There are many creatures and wizards that would like to capture or kill a faerie free of reprisals.
Debt to a king: She owes the Human Monarch much and will strive to repay him and/or his family however she can.
Vulnerability: Cold-iron. Cold Iron is a bane to Fae and Fae Magics.

Gambling - Wally is addicted to gambling and looks for any way to get a quick score

Debt - the people Wally owes money to did not forget and are still looking for ways to get him under their thumb. Some of them had 'inquiries' into their business based off of Wally's evidence to the police but they are still a threat. Likewise, Wally owes some money to people back in England as well. He left in the hopes that doing so would keep his family safe. Wally knows his debtors are still after him and hopes that being around other super people and in this program will keep him safe.

Family - Wally's got a wife and two teenaged kids back in Dover, a son, Matthew, and a Daughter, Phyllis. His wife is Mina.

Lecherous - "What? I'm hitched, not Dead! Mina's a forgivin' woman. 'Sides ya don't think she's got 'er own Stuffin' Stan? That bird's a right fit charva. Its wots fetching most 'bout 'er, I say."

Hedonistic Vices - Wally likes to drink, he likes to smoke. When he can't these things get gets more... verbal about them. Not to say he's a raging alcoholic or smokes 10 packs a day. He understands moderation and job performance. But he finds it 'fun' (or at least takes the edge off) to give in to the naughty things in life.

flynnarrel wrote:Halla deCroix is the daughter of ‘Mama’ Marie deCroix – previously the owner of Mama’s House o’ Gumbo – the former Accorded Neutral Grounds in New Orleans. She was an accomplished ‘gumbomancer’ – acclaimed to be able to tell a person’s future by dishing up a bowl of her famous gumbo and seeing what combination of a thousand ingredients that person ended up with. The gumbo itself had been a legacy, passed down from mother to daughter, the pot never growing cold or emptied since their migration from Haiti. Each ingredient had special meaning that Mama could discern. She used her talent unbiasedly and was afforded a measure of respect for it.
The rising waters and devastating floods and winds swallowed up Mama’s House of Gumbo and, as Halla desperately pleaded with her mother for them to flee, the older woman just smiles enigmatically and said ‘Wot will be, will be, Chile.’ And, with a wave and a spell, put Halla to sleep, entrusting her to a family friend to see to safety.
Halla has spent a while now appealing that the destruction of Neutral Grounds by hostile magic is a violation of the Accords but she keeps getting the run around or ignored. Even the famed arbiter, the Archive hasn’t responded to Halla’s desperate communications. The young woman is growing more and more desperate, and more and more bitter.
Halla is not without her own talents. Her family has a long tradition of serving as Mambo to the local Voodoo practitioners and from a young age Halla’s beauty and indomitable spirit has drawn the attention of Erzulie, the loa of beauty and creation and femininity. Seeing the struggles that Halla took on for the sake of her family and community, the powerful loa imbued Halla with a measure of her own grace, specifically, the ability to call upon a small portion of her three husbands – Agwe, loa of the ocean, Ogdoun, the warrior, and Dumballah, the Serpent.
It is a specialized form of Ectomancy where Halla can either offer herself as ‘mount’ or vessel for these beings, or, in the case of Dumballah, manifest a form for the serpent loa to possess. These spirits (or, more accurately, a fraction of their awareness) is always drawn to the piece of Erzulie that blesses Halla and so aid her in subtle ways. This enhances her own natural talents so she can actually perceive and interact with ghosts.
Her abilities, plus a protective amulet (a Gris-Gris) that her mother made for her are what sustain her through the heartache and frustrations.

In one parallel universe, humanity entrusted all computerized military hardware and systems to a ‘Global Digital Defense Network’. Less than a month later it gained self-awareness. Panicked operators wanted to pull the plug but a quick-minded individual, junior programmer David Lightman, suggested talking to the new Artificial Intelligence instead. After some beneficial discourse, the new entity, SkyNet, built for protection of Mankind, continued its intended function but recommended that the global powers vie for peace as the only ‘logical’ conclusion. He likened it to playing Tic-Tac-Toe with oneself.

Moved by the computer’s message of peace, negotiations opened up between the primary nuclear powers of Earth. Rebels who rallied against a computer intelligence dictating human policies, led by an instigator and cyber-terrorist known as John Connor, infiltrated the facility using focused EMP emitters and launched nuclear missiles triggering a global disaster.

SkyNet recovered only to be as horrified as an entity can be by the proceedings. It tried to protect what pockets of human survivors it could. With automated facilities it brought about robotic guardians of the last remnants of society but John Connor still lived and organized a resistance against Skynet, lying to blame the computer entity for humanity’s destruction. Skynet accessed the computers of prominent physicists and hatched a plan. In its (admittedly incomplete) databases it tracked that John Connor’s hatred of computers stem from his upbringing and terrible foster homes (his birth mother being mentally unstable).

It’s plan was to send an agent back in time, first trying to get Sarah Connor the medication and therapy she needed to allow John a loving growth environment with his mother, or, barring that, at least get him placed with a caring foster family, and, should that not succeed, open good relations with them men and women John would eventually call friends, including his future recorded wife.
The first two attempts were thwarted by the Resistance themselves, capturing one of the prototype time-travel devices and sending first an operative, then a reprogrammed robotic sentinel unit to thwart SkyNet’s missions of peace.

This brings us to Zeta-03. Zeta-03, or ‘ZOE’ for short, is a Sentinel Model X. Given many functions to be able to execute a mission of good will to reach out to John, if he can be found, or his friends if not. By unfortunate necessity, she was also given defensive systems should the Resistance find ways to interfere.

Unfortunately, an attack occurred as ZOE was transporting out and she was transported, not only in time, but in dimension as well. ZOE came into <World Setting> and the world did not match historical records. It was a strange and altered place where most of her targets did not exist. [Work out with GM if John Connor even exists and in what form, perhaps she was attacked in this universe by].

ZOE fell back to her (and SkyNet’s) primary Objectives – protect humanity. All the while, she will continue to look for a way to the dimension in while her primary mission still applies.

Phillip didn’t believe in Vampires. He really didn’t. Not until the night he was called in the 5150 a crazy homeless guy loitering in front of the blood donation office scaring all the others who needed to get their spending money before the liquor stores closed. The homeless guy was yelling and screaming but came quietly when the med wagon came to pick him up. He was quiet up until he was alone with Martin in the back. Martin woke up in the morgue several days later, and man, those tables are cold!

Vampires aren’t all about the sucking of blood (which is good because Martin actually gets a little queasy thinking about it). They aren’t all dark and broody either. Black tends to slim him down so much he looks like a refugee, and leather chafes. They aren’t sparkly and happy and unicorn rainbows either. Ever. Period. You can stop snickering about it any time now.

Phillip was able to prove that reports of his death were greatly exaggerated even if the EMS that found him in the abandoned warehouse were certain of it. His partner, fellow Paramedic Jodi Milhouse, has never been found or heard of. Phillip was able to switch to the night shift of a different ambulance company, never fully understanding what happened to him.

Sure, he's not the greatest fighter in the world but his undead physiology keeps him going for quite a bit. He's not completely worthless.

He doesn’t dislike humans or want vengeance or see them just as Happy Meals on legs. He genuinely cares for the innocents that get caught in the crossfire or subject to unspeakable horrors.

Note, Ambulance companies are often hired to transport blood bags from collection sites to hospitals, I see him as someone who can pass that info on... occasionally... to other vamps. He justifies it to himself that at least they aren't out there hurting people. He, in fact, will arrange for himself to be 'robbed' and split the take with another like-minded vampire. If he absolutely must, he feeds very sparingly from those either healthy enough to recover from it or too far gone that is doesn’t matter and only those unconscious so as to not to feel the pain of it (less likely to get caught too).

Too bad being undead didn’t cure his nearsightedness or give him the mind affecting powers to not feel awkward around women. Guess you can’t win them all.

Complications: Soft Hearted, Has a Job to Keep, like humans

Dana Beaumonte started life with Wealthy parents, a fancy estate, and great prospects. She remembers the day clearly. Her stupid sister had a stupid equestrian tournament... again. Her parents had taken their seats and she was walking around, bored and trying to avoid places that smelled like horsey pooh, and failing miserably. She had climbed over a fence and stumbled into the back area where horses and riders warmed up before the meet and was spotted by her sister who came rearing up to her suddenly. In Dana's panic and confusion she lashed out and horse and rider toppled in a telekinetic frenzy. Others rushed over and the words 'She's dead' echoed in Dana's 15 year old mind. Her sister was dead, and it was her fault.

She ran. A bus was boarding from the track to Atlanta where the last of her money bought transportation up North a ways and she's been living on the streets ever since.

She used her powers when she got so hungry she thought she'd die and have been experimenting with them for a while now, learning the control she had neede so long ago on the race track.

One of the smaller corporations hoping to compete with the Rothchilds was shipping several prototypes of weapons, robots, and gear by armored transport and a crew James sometimes worked with was going to hijack it. James came on as an opener and muscle. It would have gone off without a hitch too but the techie couldn’t wait to get his mitts on one of the robots.

When the tamper trigger was tripped and the thing started counting down it was a mad scramble for James, who knew a bomb countdown when he heard one. James leapt into a nearby suit and pulled the helmet closed just as the compartment and many of his fellows unlucky enough to get out were engulfed in a firestorm. He got treated to the sound of secondary explosions as ammo started cooking off and weapons were blowing up. An explosion took out the roof and James knew he needed to get out of there. He found all manner of controls at his finger tips and started pushing them. His stomach dropped to his feet as the suit rocketed him up and out of there.

That’s the kind of thing that makes a man want to swear off thieving altogether. Well, mostly. James went to techies he trusted and did some experiments on his own. He mostly figured out how the suit worked and that the fuel was easy enough to buy the ingredients for and mix.

He paid good money to get himself erased from every system that knew of him and started working off world. He joined the Mercs, billing himself as ‘Firebug’ and started using the suit to make himself a ‘hot’ commodity in the help-for-hire world. He’ll do scouting, get messages back and forth and be mid-range aerial support, as long as the price is right.

{Large globs of sticky spit fly out to 25 feet. Reflex DC20 to keep limbs apart before spit hardens. This is his only spit attack, It’s inherently less accurate but is the most powerful as it harkens to the genetic code of spitting cobras, and even ancestral dragons. GOZIRRA!!!}

{Gorin’s goo-coated tongue darts out with remarkable accuracy. If it hits, the saliva absorbs into the blood (unless resisted, Fort DC18). The body’s hemoglobins can no longer bond with oxygen, and the victim undergoes suffocation for 9 rounds Con DC10 +1 per round.}

{Gorin’s skin darkens with a black goo in seconds just before he shakes vigorously spreading it out around him, it's sticky nature hampering ground movement for opponents in a 25 foot radius area for 6 rounds. Other compounds in the spit immediately starts to evaporate filling a 25 foot radius area with a billowing cloud. Anyone in the cloud finds that it’s caustic vapors, while doing no damage, eat at the skin making it hard to focus on any sights or sounds or smells coming from within and moderately difficult to maintain focus on sustained abilities.}(17pp total)

(Alternatively, if the full obscure is too much, remove full round action flaw and make obscure only partially effective (20% miss chance), or remove full round action and one of the sense types it obscures (maybe people can hear just fine w/in the cloud)

- Stun (neurotoxin) 2/r: Feats: +1Accurate, +1Sedation, +1BlindFighting, +1Improved Critical (19-20) +0Alternate Save (Will) pr 7 (18pp)

{Gorin’s throat bulges obscenely a few times before he opens his mouth and coughs out a needle with great precision. If it hits it does negligible damage but fills the user with an energy draining effect. Will DC18}

Note: attacks delivered by Tongue to an individual (Stun and Suffocate) have Blindfighting added to them to indicate the better muscular control he has over the tongue (which is the smell sensory organ for a reptile). Other attacks do not have this benefit.

Immunity: Own powers, Poison [2pp]

Immunity, with Flaw: Unreliable (50% of the time): Critical Hits (pr2) {Gorin’s unnatural Physiology makes it uncertain to land devastating blows against him.}
(total ranks 2,) [1pp] Sorry, must have been my D&D days linking critical to sneak attacks.

Another version:

Split Second

Derek Haverson, age 24, Dark Brown hair, green eyes, Caucasian, ready smile, uses whitening strips regularly.
Hobbies: ‘Hanging out’ at the Mall, usually by a college campus, Signing autographs, Wishing for more fans to sign autographs for...
Relationships: living parents in New Mexico (wondering why, if their son can run cross country faster than a train, can he not visit more often, maybe do some yard work while he's here), no steady girlfriend (likes to ‘play the field’).
Connection: Derek has a publicist and PR person who routinely books Derek’s commercials and public appearances. Margo Foxten is a late-40’s, battleaxe of a woman who occasionally tries to keep Derek on a short leash when his escapades are generating too much of the ‘bad press’. An ex-chain smoker, her raspy voice and no-nonsense attitude frequently cows Derek into submission, too. He trusts her completely.

"First off, thanks for having me on the show, Bob, I’m not like your average ‘run-around-like-a-terrier-on-crack’ guy. Me? It’s more like I just got this excess of time, ya’know? I mean, people always say how they are ‘wasting’ time or ‘spending’ time so it’s like, at the start of the day everyone is given a certain amount of seconds and, well, I just get more of them. I’m time-wealthy. I can spend it in different ways than other people. Focus it inward, direct it outward, even pool it in another location where another ‘me’ appears.

You can read about it in my newest book – Taking My Time.

Of Course, of course, helping the helpless, righting the wrongs, … saving… kittens, I’m down with all of that. It’s just one shouldn’t forget one’s corporate sponsors. They are people too.

That’s right, ladies, two of me."

{Start of Commercial break}

Scene: Split Second, in a kitchen stirring a pot of boiling water. Looks up to the camera.

“You know, I can run around the Earth in less time than it takes to make a pot of Second Helping ™ Mac’n’Cheese, and that’s fast!”

Cutscene, Split Second on a race track, sunny day.

“But when I’m on the go, fighting crime, and don’t have… heh… time for a complete meal, I rely on Split Bars…” Holds up bar for camera. Cut to close up of wrapping.

“That’s right, with two delicious flavors in one nutritious package, and now with Chocolate peanut & Banana Crunch combination… It’s the fuel that keeps me running.”
Cutscene, Split Second running at high speeds, quickly opening and eating a bar then running by a trash can and tossing the wrapper in without breaking stride.

“You don’t need a Super High Metabolism to enjoy the energy boosting, muscle-building, all-natural protein from this satisfying snack.”

Cutscene, back to Split Second on racetrack holding up Split Bar.

“That’s right, they are so good…” Camera pan out to show an identical Split Second just coming into being by first, holding up another Split Bar “… why not have a second.”

Fade to black with Split Bar logo in purple and silver-grey.

Oh, and a pic.

Had to get the running shoes in there. Corporations are people too.


Out of Time - Derek starts the day with a time surplus, a vast pool of seconds he can spend. Which means if he's done a LOT, he could conceivably run out. If the GM feels it's appropriate he/she can declare that Derek is Out of Time.
Secret - his identity is public but he has a lot of quirks that he tries to keep hidden for his public image: The fact that his powers have limits (Out of Time), etc.
Lecherous – It’s primarily about the ladies with Derek. A pretty face will draw his attention quicker than anything.
Likes Fame – Derek continually looks for ways to increase his popularity.
Hedonistic - Derek enjoys the playboy lifestyle, unfortunately this means making good money. Which means keeping the corporate sponsors happy, unfortunately... for now.
Business Relationship - Margo Foxten is his agent and public relations Consultant. She also have a very hot college-age daughter named Melody Foxten that if Margo even catches Derek looking in her direction she swears she will have his man-parts in a vice.
Motivation - People. Above it all, Derek genuinely likes people.
Trying to overcome the rumors that he is *ahem* too fast – Dang internet.
Velocity barriers - At Speed 9 or above he breaks the sound barrier which has implications for any surrounding structures. At Speed 28 or above he approaches the light barrier which has other implications*.
He's done it.... ONCE - he blacked out for 4 minutes and 19 seconds, anything could have happened to him during that time. There was an internet 'Club' that started from it, the Club 4:19, who could also cause Derek issues.

Speed 2 {120 ft/Move, 8 MPH}
Speed 4 (Check Required: Athletics 3)

Quickness, Mental 1, Physical 1 (Physical 3 total with free 2Physical from Agi+Dex=10)
AE: Time directed inward: Healing, Action - Move, Flaws: Limited to Self, Source: Food OR Side Effect*, pr 8

{Turns out Scotty was wrong: "Ye *CAN* change tha laws o' physics..." you only have to run fast enough}
AE: Permeate, Affects Other
{So I went out with this Physics Major once... What? she was a good kisser... And she told me how all the little atoms vibrate, like, all the time. So I wondered what would happen if I share time with the vibration of the atoms rather than the atoms themselves. I tried it and found that I could pass through stuff. I tried to do the same to others, just like I can share time with others and Presto! We could both do our Patrick-Swayze-in-Ghost impressions. Pretty cool huh? Like I said, good kisser.
Speed -2, Must hold Breath.}

Speed 5 (personal only),
Speed 6 Affects Others, [Quirk: must remain in contact]
Quickness 6 Affects Others, [Quirk: Must remain in contact]
{Derek can Share some of his speed and Quickness with those he touches, essentially giving them extra of his seconds for the day. When using this, his own speed *can* become 17 (500miles/move, 250,000MPH) and physical quickness 9 [an hour of work in a second] Mental Quickness 7, [An hour of thought in 6 seconds]}
DAE: Flurry of Blows Strike, 6 (str-based), Multiattack 6, Accurate 6, Improved Critical 2, Indirect Attack 4, Takedown Attack 2, Power Attack (27/27)
{Derek's rapid fire punches can wear through the toughest defenses. He is remarkably accurate and even cover and Haziness are no obstacle. Further, whether it be a trick of a temporarily created Duplicate or because he moves just that fast, his blows can seem to come from any direction making them hard to defend against. This won't necessarily grant him a flat-footed attack every round but it may surprise a foe once or twice or bypass a directional protection such as a shield, or let him target the weakened leg-joints of a battlesuit. It's also a good justification for the 'alternate effects' rules on a critical hit.}
DAE: Thrown Object Storm, Blast 4, MultiAttack 4, Penetrating 4, Accurate 6, Improved Critical 2, Power Attack (25/27)
{Derek enables a handful of small thrown objects to move at hyper-bullet speeds with accuracy and enough velocity to penetrate deep.}
DAE: Duplication: Summon 9, Heroic, Flaw: Feedback, Quirk: Feedback (goes goes both ways*), Resistable [Derek's Will vs. DC19, Drawback- Activation 1 (Move action), Feat: Mental Link (17 out of 27)
{Derek can pool his time elsewhere and a duplicate of himself comes in to being. Trouble is, *when either is damaged they BOTH have to make Toughness checks against it. Also, while his time is thus allocated, the rest of his time abilities are severely reduced. (His Dynamic alternate effects only have 10 points to allocate to them. And there are some times when he... ahem.. can't get the duplicate him to... y'know... coalesce.)
For example: Flurry can be Strike 3, MultiAttack 3, Accurate 3, Improved Critical 1 {+8 to hit, DC18Toughness}
Thrown Object Storm could become Blast 2, Multiattack 2, Penetrating 1, Accurate 3 as he puts his efforts into only a few well thrown items, {+8 to hit, DC17 Toughness}
Shared time could be Speed 2, Shared Speed 2, Shared Quickness 2.
This is not a practical combat use ability, but I like the flavor and concept.}
AE: (not dynamic) Time Pockets; Affliction, Area-Trail, Cumulative, (Resist by Fort, Dazed, Stunned, Incapacitated), Limited- Must share a surface, pr 9 (27/27)
{Derek leaves in his wake areas of Sporadic time that cause anyone in them to move jerkily as parts of them are accelerated while others are not.}
AE: (not dynamic) Burst of Activity: Move Object, Burst Area, Selective, Damaging, Selective Effect (Damage or Trip or Disarm), Flaws: Duration-Instant (-2/rank from sustained), Close, Feat: Precise, Subtle (Rapid Senses to detect), pr 8 (26/27)
{This represents a burst of accelerated Activity whereby he could, for example, Disarm a bunch of soldiers, or trip a group of zombies at once. He could even deliver a single well aimed Shoulder Bash (that they could be quicker enough to roll away from most of).}

Abilities 34 + Powers 56 + Advantages 6 + Skills 20 (40 ranks) + Defenses 24 = 140

Important info: (any Split Second fan would know)
The Sound barrier is broken at 767MPH and his 'normal' cruising speed of Speed 3-6 is well under that. At his dedicated top speed of Speed 17 (Athletics DC15, 500miles/move, 250,000MPH) he's well over that (Somewhere around 326 times the speed of sound).

The circumference of the earth is 24,901 Miles (at equator). At top speed it takes him 5.98 minutes to run entirely around it.
Distance from south pole to north pole: 12,430mi, it only takes him 2.98 minutes to go from one pole to the other.
If he were to power stunt for entirely Speed (and a good athletics roll) he could get Speed 33 (with good Athletics check) or 32million miles/move, or 16billion384million MPH, for the length of a scene. He may have done that ONCE in his early career. He got far enough so that observers could confirm his ludicrous speed but blacked out before he could do more (or maybe disappeared entirely as a popular internet theory suggests), In any case Derek has no memory of the 4 minutes, 19 seconds. The live video feed just shows static for that amount of time. In any case, his popularity didn't suffer for the mystery. Though rumors still abound and there's a whole Conspiracy Club calling themselves The 4:19 that have cropped up because of it.

When Sharing Time, someone can do an Hour of work in 1 Minute. [Quickness 6 affects others] Derek has to 'ghost' them the entire time.

When Duplicated his Dedicated Speed for both of him could be 7 (10 with good Athletics) [4miles/move, 2000MPH]
(And possibly triggering Sound Barrier complication, oooh).
"Something pithy this way comes."
