COMPLICATIONS
Religion: Mariam is a semi-practicing Muslim.

Motivation - Equality: However, she is also an avid feminist, and strives for equality of men and women throughout Africa. She particularly makes it one of the missions of the UAL to combat traditions of FGM.

Responsibility: Diplomatically represent, not the modern government of Mali, but the old traditions of Timbuktu and the Songhai Empire. This is a difficult balancing act, and the modern Mali government sometimes threatens to revoke her diplomatic status.

Old Enemies: Coming from a line of aristocrats over 500 years old means there are old feuds with many rivals to deal with.

Wanderlust: Descended from successful caravaneers, Mariam has a hard time staying in one place too long.

BIO

Dressed in white and with her head mostly covered, slim Sahara seems to be fragile and vulnerable. However, this innocuous appearance masks a skilled fighter and a cunning computer scientist, as well as the scion of an old aristocratic family. Many who know of Sahara's wealth assume she must be an oil sheikh, but in truth her wealth is old and inherited from the days when salt, not oil, was the source of immense wealth for the people of the desert.

Founding the UAL was initially her idea. Despite her fighting skills, Sahara does prefer to stay out of physical conflict when possible, instead assisting the UAL as its moneybags and hacker and in other capacities.

NOTES

It was interesting to see how high a Fighting score she ended up with, in spite of being a somewhat noncombative character conception. Also a rare case I came up with where the descriptors make sense to have Damage resisted by Fortitude.

COMPLICATIONS
Motivation - Responsibility: The rather cocky thief Akin was humbled by his acquiring of powers (Brimming Energy and Resonant Missiles), and it is his overarching goal to live up to the responsibility conveyed by those powers, doing good rather than harm.

Fugitive: Akin is still a wanted criminal in his home city of Abuja. Missions there must be conducted particularly delicately.

Guilt: Deep down, Akin still feels guilty about his past of crime and violence.

Flirtatious: When missions lead to him having the opportunity to manipulate a woman through flirting, he can get carried away ...

BIO

A reformed thief named after his home city of Abuja, Nigeria, Akin Ladipo was a master burglar, urban climber, and knife fighter. One day, he was caught in a high-tech accident while burgling a laboratory. The accident left him with a vibrating energy inside, which made him even more agile and allowed him to channel explosive force into objects he threw. Amazed by his newfound effectiveness in fights, he re-evaluated his life choices and moved toward the coast, and became the second member of the UAL. Now he acts as the UAL's chief representative in the heavily-populated nations along the Gulf of Guinea coast of West Africa, inhabiting mainly Lagos and Ibadan.

NOTES

Should adding the concussive descriptor to thrown weapon attacks be one point, or two? I'm not sure it really qualifies for a Limited.

Loss: Victoria has lost many dear friends and family to tribal wars over the centuries, and is afraid to forge such close bonds again.

Pride: Victoria is easily offended if someone insults her considerable musical talents, which she has worked very hard on.

BIO

Originally (in ancient times) a woman of the mountains of Africa's Rift Valleys, Mukantagara achieved a closeness with the spirits of nature that transformed her into an immortal spirit. She still looks human, except too perfect of features, but she is a bit aloof and radiates immense spiritual presence. She has joined the UAL.

NOTES

I know some people consider lots of Sustained Protection a critical weakness of a build, but I wasn't sure of another flavor-appropriate way to boost Victoria's defenses.

COMPLICATIONS

Responsibility: Rashidi must balance his superhero work with his "day job" as a police detective in Kenya.

Prejudice: Some people are pretty weirded out by interacting with an elephant-man hybrid.

Accidents: While Rashidi tries to use his elephantine mass advantageously, it can often be a hindrance.

BIO

Rashidi was an ordinary (well, exceptionally bright) detective and ranger, until after a particularly disappointing episode in which poachers made off with a fine bull elephant specimen. That night, as Rashidi was questioning his life choices in bed, the elephant's spirit visited him and gave him the ability to change into an anthropomorphic elephant form. He found it was quite useful in physical contests, if a bit awkward socially.

His Southern Cape Lighthouse is where his team goes to relax and "get away" from superhero work a bit.

NOTES

Here's the UAL's team brick and detective.

I did decide to scrap Density Growth, replacing it with Enhanced Strength and Stamina and a Feature for greater mass. Even though it meant scrounging for points elsewhere. I want these to be builds that I might be ok with, were I the GM.

Motivation - Doing Good: Kxaru seems amused by superhero work, but is very reserved about why it amuses her. When asked why she chooses such a dangerous lifestyle, she replies, "I'm old, I've lived my life; hang it all, why not?"

Reputation: Spooky and primitive.

Prejudice: Kxaru is part San ethnically, and the San aren't always treated well by other tribes.

Aversion: Like a stereotypical elderly person, Kxaru struggles with ordinary uses of new technology.

BIO

A gnarled but spry, crotchety, little old woman, a witch-doctor by trade, a San ("bushman") by heritage; the magic specialist of the UAL. Also their translator on the rare occasion they meet someone who doesn't understand any of the 26 languages spoken by the rest of the team.

NOTES

Not sure about applying Incurable to a Weaken effect, technically. The description of Incurable specifically says "damage," which Weaken isn't. But Restorative Healing can "heal" Weaken, so it makes sense that Incurable should be able to block that ...

I know some people consider lots of Sustained Protection a critical weakness of a build, but I wasn't sure of another flavor-appropriate way to boost Jinx's defenses.

COMPLICATIONS
Motivation - Respect: Frungle has deep respect for Africa and particularly for its jungles, and works to save them.

Outsider: Frungle really, really wishes he was a natural, native-born African like his allies. They all like to tease him about it.

Practical Matters: Frungle strives to be as respectful as possible towards the primates that inevitably keep showing up to help him out with things. This is particularly difficult if they end up dying in his service -- what should he do with all those dead monkey bodies?

Anxiety: Frungle has social anxiety, which has nothing to do with language barriers (which he has proved pretty good at overcoming).

BIO

The token white man of the UAL (Unite Africa League), Gabriel Bernard is a seasoned jungle safari man. He tends to dress like an 1800s hunter and acts as the main pilot for his allies. His name "Frungle" is a shortened nickname for "Frenchman in the Jungle," and is sometimes pronounced "Frawn-glay." He's not particularly fond of the nickname, but it's stuck. When not on a mission, he mainly gravitates back to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Nobody knows quite how his superpower works. Monkeys, lemurs, and apes just seem to show up and help whenever he needs them, even in totally implausible places. Nobody knows where they come from, but his allies have seen it happen enough times now to be absolutely certain it's some sort of superpower.

Gabriel's not particularly book-smart, but works very, very hard at learning a wide variety of African languages.

NOTES

His main power is Uncontrolled, partly because I needed the points. This fits its fluff, and adds to the comical nature of the build; but we hope the GM is generous in providing summoned monkeys, because 45 ppt is a pretty big investment.

Dropped the Density Growth power from Elephant Man to make his build less cheezy.

Welcome to the boards, Captain. Good to see you posting here. I've only been skimming the builds but so far, they look good. I need to get around to building some elementals for my fantasy setting and these have given me some good ideas. Keep up the good work. 8-)

Well, if you don't have to keep a PP budget closely (NPCs), you should really be able to go wild with those elementals. :)

BIO

"Aww crap, not this guy again." -a common sentiment of superheroes when they see evidence that Gelnon's about.

Gelnon looks basically human except for his stature and musculature. He works as hired muscle for various thugs and supervillains, even many far less powerful than himself as long as the pay's good. Since he can be reborn in a few days in his secret lab, he's not afraid to die in the cause of his work. (He can charge even more of a fee that way, after all.) This whole paradigm makes him a frustratingly recurrent problem for heroes!

NOTES

Surprisingly hard to build, even though I didn't have to be careful of a Power Points budget. Based on the Brute archetype in the Gamemaster's Guide, but with some unique elements sprinkled in.
