Knickknack


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

Context

You should first read the Death-Throws’ team profile for history and context. It’s not a tall order.


Background

  • Real Name: Nick Grossman.
  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Death-Throws.
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile.
  • Height: 5’3” Weight: 150 lbs.
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown


Powers and Abilities

Though he’s unusually short, Knickknack is very stocky and muscular. He might very well be the strongest members of the Death-Throws. Unlike the others he seems comfortable with engaging opponents in close combat rather than at a range.

His specialities are juggling bladed objects. This usually means a random assortment of cleavers, butcher’s knives, swords, axes, sabres, machetes, hatchets, etc.. He’s also adept at juggling unlikely everyday objects such as shoes, eggs, lead pipes, screwdrivers and tomatoes.

Knickknack has the strongest track record of all Death-Throws. Though it may just have been a matter of being lucky with the dice, I have given him slightly superior stats, skills and HPs to represent this.


History

See the main Death-Throws article.


Description

The Death-Throws juggle almost all the time, even when discussing with somebody else.


Personality

Knickknack is brash, aggressive and confident. He seems to see himself as a sort of evil swashbuckler – though it may just be the moustache.


Quotes

(After catching and throwing away Hawkeye’s arrow) “Here, archer – I’ll let you practice catching too. Here’s a chainsaw !”

(Juggling six swords) “Nah, we don’t want to kill you… we just wanna play !”
