Geist coming in

Geist

(Dwayne Geyer)


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

Context

Geist is one of the characters who emerged from the 1993 Bloodlines event. These Annuals each introduced a new super-hero, unwittingly empowered by alien invaders. However, the event was poorly received by commentators, and one must admit that it was very 1993 – a peculiar era in super-hero comic books.

Only a few characters met with clear success (mainly Hitman), though some had coolness to them (such as Layla).

All in all, he’s such a minor and forgotten character that his power of invisibility is fitting.


Background

  • Real Name: Dwayne Geyer.
  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Former member of the Blood Pack.
  • Base Of Operations: Gotham.
  • Height: 5’10” Weight: 175 lbs.
  • Eyes: All blue/reflective Hair: Blond


Powers and Abilities

Dwayne’s body became transparent to light when in light. Unfortunately, so do his eyes, making him blind while in even average daylight. However in darkness, he gains the ability to see like a cat.

Geist can also, by force of will, extend this ability to other beings or objects.


History

Dwayne Geyer was something of a whiz kid in college. He finished early and landed a plush job at Chem-Max.

While leaving late from work, Dwayne was attacked by one of the Bloodline aliens. After awaking from the attack, he found the he had gained strange abilities.

After thinking about it, he created a cool costume and decided to become a hero. After helping Batman drive off one of the aliens, he realized that a chemical leak at the plant, wasn’t what had given him his powers.

When the government rounded up the New Bloods, Geist was more than happy to help destroy the aliens that had ruined his life. After the Bloodline aliens had been destroyed, several of the New Bloods were contacted by Jeremy Baxter, a Hollywood producer. Baxter convinced them to join the Blood Pack, a meta-human television documentary show.

However, because of his inability to be seen by the cameras, he was not “what they were looking for”, and was fired. His currents whereabouts are unknown.


Personality

Dwayne was suffering from mild depression before his transformation. Working for a disreputable chemical company had alienated him from most of his friends. After his transformation, he became more despondent, as he would not be able to live a normal life due to his new abilities.

However, Dwayne shook it off and now takes it in stride. He often uses humor to hide his inexperience and fear of failing. All this aside, Dwayne has become a true hero and has several times risked his life to save others.


Description

When actually seen, Geist is dressed in an all black body suit. His mask covers his entire face, but not his wild blond hair. The goggles are built into his mask, with only the tinted eyepieces showing through.

He wears a hood that is never up and the tails of his mask always flutter behind him.
