Ghost II

(Luah)


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.


Background

  • Real Name: Luah
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: The New Global Guardians
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Eyes: White Hair: Bald Skin: Grey
  • Height: 4’9” Weight: 140 lbs


Powers and Abilities

The effects of the radioactive waste in the river turned Luah’s skin pasty grey, his head bald and made him recover from most forms of damage, to which he is quite resistant, too. He was viciously attacked by Solar, DarkSun’s alter ego, who managed to burn a big hole in his chest with his vault-door melting laser vision, but some minutes later he was up again.

His muscles have recovered the strength of his youth and even more, as he does not have to bother much about muscles ripping when exerting too much.

Another effect of the radioactivity is that he now can alter his looks and even his whole body aspect, steel hard to others but putty- like to his will.

On the other hand, the transformation of Luah surely wasn’t directly derived from the toxic waste but from the kicking in of his metagene, that may have something to do with either the homo magi or the Greek Amazons, as he is also highly resistant to mental and mystical damage, and has developed a lethal vulnerability to the presence of non-forged, cold cast iron, something typical among some mythical creatures, as Valfadir has explained him.


History

After being covered in toxic, radioactive waste by a north american company in the Amazonian river while taking a bath, old amazonian Luah was mutated into another thing. His recovery powers and his grey colour were considered a curse and he decided, on his own terms, to leave the tribes until he found a cure to his condition.

Meanwhile he did, he managed to destroy some illegal activities going through the Amazon, and doing so he earned an eco-terrorist fame all around Venezuela, Brazil, Bogatago and among some north-american companies. It was while burning some coca fields at Bogatago and receiving, impervious, the bullets of the soldiers while standing in the flames, that the New Global Guardians met him and enrolled him in his rescue of two international hostages held by the paramilitars.


Description

Ghost II is an old man whose skin is covered by a grey, slick substance. Even when he changes his features, he still keeps the grey hue, and has to use make-up to resemble the usual human tone.


Personality

Ghost is a thoughtful old man who sometimes acts in very unpredictable and weird ways. He understands most of the ways of the modern world, but that doesn’t mean that he accepts them: he has little use for social ettiquete, dresses just with a g-string and touches and smells everything and everybody he finds. His best friend in the Global Guardians, for obvious reasons, is The Cowboy.

Luah firmly believes in the Old Traditions, he is strong-willed and can find holes in most people’s arguments, as his mind usually runs a path quite different than others’.


Quotes

Djinn: “We must depose that tyrant !”
HK-47: “We need proof.”
Ghost II: “Proof ? Tyrant ? Sorry, but I don’t understand you : I propose the way we’ve always followed in my tribe. Singular combat between those who want to rule and the winner is the new chief.”
