Powers and Abilities

Luger is a very skilled, professional hitman.


History

Thomas Gordon Hanley was a small-time hood who was offered ten thousand dollars and the chance to make a reputation for himself. All he had to do was to kill an errand numbers runner, who had been caught trying to steal some money that rightfully belonged to the Organization.

Hanley took the job and started on a new career – that of a professional hitman.

Sometime during the long and bloody years in which he worked, he had become the greatest hit man of all times. The number of hits he had successfully completed were beyond reckoning. His alias came from the weapon he had used on his first hit so many years ago : he was called Luger.

Luger died by his own hand during a confrontation with Surge of the DNAgents.


Description

A muscular, thirty-something man with short hair. Luger dress like a biker, and carries his weapons openly. His explosives charges are held in a harness.


Personality

Luger is a basically honorable man despite his grisly profession. He carries himself with an unemotional, almost detached manner which those around him often find chilling. He follows the Assassin’s code of honor : never kill anyone in front of their family, never kill anyone around a church, never rob or torture your victims, carry the job out as expediently as possible.

He always stakes out his victim inconspicuously before he makes his move. When on a job, he always tries to get the advantage of surprise, tries to take out his victim quickly, and then makes for his escape.


DC Universe History

Luger could easily be used if you want a professional, highly experienced human hitman who’s not a munchkin, esp. in a realistic game. Very few changes would need to be made, except that of course he wouldn’t be the greatest hitman ever.
