Djinn


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This character is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these characters were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event.

This specific character was part of the New Global Guardians campaign, run by writeups.org contributor Kal El.

  • Real Name: Jasmin ben Korak
  • Other Aliases: Monster, Djinn
  • Marital Status: Single
  • Known Relatives: Unknown
  • Group Affiliation: New Global Guardians; previously, The Djinn tribe and the Quraci rebellion
  • Base Of Operations: HK-47’s Flying Fortress
  • Height: 5’3” Weight: N/A Age: 20
  • Eyes: Black Hair: Black Skin: Olive


Powers and Abilities

Jasmin has got stuck on her astral form and can’t return to the material world (she doesn’t even know if she’s really alive, still). Before, she could barely manifest a kind of “poltergeist” telekinesis around her.

In her new psionic form, her mental powers got developed to a greater measure than before: she can now detect life, is pretty immune to illusions, can speak and attack telepathically, and even read thoughts and memories; she can also project intense emotions around her and concentrating her telekinesis in a single, powerful blast of force instead of spreading it around her.


History

Jasmin’s bedouin tribe was named Djinn because a phantasmal force was known to defend them frequently, ripping weapons from the hands of many enemies at the same time and raising small sandstorms to cover the tribe. With time, it became evident that the poltergeist was linked to Jasmin’s presence, so she was named “Djinn” instead of the tribe: she became a respected and feared person, but not a loved one.

When Djin’’s tribe witnessed secret military nuclear operations in the quaraci desert, militars decided to terminate them. The bedouins (and Jasmin) fighted and escaped, but soon the soldiers came back with Harun, a psionic recruiter from President’s Marlo “Jihad”: he kidnapped Jasmin and killed all her tribe.

She managed to revenge by killing the whole military party with a deadly explosion, but since she has remained immaterial. It’s not yet clear if Harun survived the blast.

Recently, Djinn has joined HK-47, Darksun, Valfadir and others in the latest incarnation of the Global Guardians. Their first assignments have been rescuing two diplomats kidnapped by the Masters of Disaster and defeating the new attempt of Felix Faust at summoning the Demons Three: Abnegazar, Rath and Ghast.

At this continuity Dr. Mist survived his apparent death and Neron has re-evolved Abnegazar to his full form, something he will take away from him in case Felix Faust’s attempt to summon the Demons fails.


Description

Jasmine’s an arab girl about 20 years old. Under her dark blue kaftan with veil, both decorated with Arab light-blue patterns she’s dressed with a black T-shirt and trousers. Her face is not covered, as at the moment of her tribe’s assassination she was still an unmarried woman.


Personality

Jasmine is a shy young girl with a fast knack for getting the details of people and places: she has got used to look behind the first appearance of any situation. She hates the inhumane military dictatorships, and for some time she helped Quraci pro-western rebels to rescue people, because she felt (and stilldoes) too guilty to kill another time.

Finally she understood she didn’t felt at home anymore at Qurac, and accepted Dr. Mist’s offer to join the new Global Guardians to show to the world that there were also good people at Qurac, not just “terrorists”.


Quotes

Djinn: “I’ve done terrible things in my life.”
Dr. Mist: “Some of us must do the ugly work.”
