Eskimo ice-skating karate killers

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


These peculiar fellows were in a 1970s kungfusploitation DC Comics, Richard Dragon Kung Fu Fighter. It made more sense back then but… not that much really.

They have a profile mostly because of the “wait, what ?” factor. I can’t think of a RPG campaign that wouldn’t be improved with them. Yep, even that one.


  • Group Affiliation: Hirelings for Ojo
  • Base Of Operations: Near the North pole
  • Height: 5’4” average Weight: 150 lbs average
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Black

Powers and Abilities

Those stone cold Inuit killers are excellent karatekas.

They wear super-sharp ice skates, both to deliver deadly bladed kicks and because they usually operate on ice that has been treated with the Ice-10 compound. Ice-10 makes ice 10 times as slick as ordinary ice, making it impossible to stand.


Look – do you really want to know about a story with “Eskimo karate killers” with murdering skates ? Seriously.

They worked for Professor Ojo.


See illustrations.


Fearsome killers, training in their special fighting arts all the time. They are relentless in their murderous assaults.

When applied on ordinary ice, Ice-10 usually gets 8 RAPs of Friction Control (Friction decrease).

Furthermore, people trying to move will have to fight prone, with a -3CS to their OV/RV. People standing up and not moving will just have a -1CS OV/RV and very restricted moves (although Dragon somehow managed to jump up without cracking his skull).
