Powers and Abilities

Gattling wears a large suit of power armour. This suit is actually quite dangerous – while it is not very powerful in itself, its jet pack make it very mobile and its cloaking field (Invisibility) allows the wearer to be a formidable ambusher and assassin.

The suit has specially enhanced arms that can support an impressive array of four multiple-barrelled machineguns, apparently chambered in 5.56mm (that’s .203). While, at first glance, this weapon system would seem to saturate a huge area with gunfire and be nearly impossible to dodge, it actually was about as dangerous and copious as standard machinegun fire.


History

Gattling was a minor, heavily-armed mercenary who was hired as an assassin in a “turf war” between two televangelists. However, the targeted preacher turned his considerable wealth toward buying protection from Silver Sable International.

Gattling’s first attempt was foiled by a newly-assembled SSI elite squad, but he managed to flee the scene ; two Wild Pack men were killed. During his second attempt, the assassin was thwarted and taken down by Silver Sable and Battlestar.


Description

Gattling is obviously ex-military, wearing a green muscle shirt and a crewcut. He has a huge brow.


Personality

Standard ex-Army muscleman with a big, big gun.
