Eldritch (Golden Heroes RPG)

Eldritch


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game
  • Sheer nostalgia after the 2012 release of Squadron UK – I still have photocopies of the villains included in the 1984 Supervisor’s Book, though these were very brief entries.
  • The stats conversion is eyeballed, as I must admit I haven’t played Golden Heroes since forever.

Background

  • Real Name: Chayaran Da’vel’dor
  • Marital Status: Single
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: None
  • Base Of Operations: A series of hidden bases across the UK
  • Height: 8’2” Weight: 330 lbs.
  • Eyes: Green Hair: Green


Powers & Abilities

Eldritch’s race is naturally very tall, and enjoys slightly superhuman strength despite their spindly appearance – their musculature is dense and they are heavier than they look. They also have developed a strange blend of science and magic.

Chayaran Da’vel’dor is highly intelligent, and prefers not to fight. His dirty work is almost always conducted by hired agents.


History

Eldritch is an exile from a peaceful species of space nomads. He was thrown out of his kind’s worldship as they were crossing the Sol system, and ended up on Earth. One assumes that he was exiled due to his decidedly non-peaceful personality.

Chayaran Da’vel’dor wants to take over the planet using his superior alien knowledge, and has been clashing with British heroes and adventurers since the 1980s.
