Slagg (Teen Titans enemy) (DC Comics)

Slagg


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game
  • Coven and Slagg are two generic 1990s villains from one of the aimless eras of Teen Titans continuity.
  • As such, they can be used in practically any campaign without any preparation.
  • They appear but a few times, and the stats thus include noticeable guesswork, but on the other hand… they’re generic.

Background

  • Real Name: Donalley (last name unrevealed)
  • Marital Status: Married
  • Known Relatives: Coven (wife)
  • Group Affiliation: Partner of Coven ; former employee of the Crimelord ; former member of the Force-Troop (along with Deadzone, Powerhouse, Bolt, Mammoth and Sudden Death)
  • Base Of Operations: Unrevealed
  • Height: 6’3” Weight: 228 lbs
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown


Powers and Abilities

Slagg is a tall, muscular man who seems to be a trained soldier and mercenary.

He wears a suit of power armour ; the suit likely has enhanced strength, but its main offensive abilities are high-pressure jets of flames that can be shot from the gauntlets. Those are powerful enough to engage superhumans or destroy small buildings, and Slagg is an excellent shot with those.

The Slagg suit might have further capabilities.

One panel can be interpreted as Slagg’s flame powers being innate.


History

Slagg is the husband of Coven. The mercenary couple worked for the vast criminal organisation of the Crimelord in the mid-1990s, during the general time of the war between the Crimelord and the alien Syndicate.

Though they generally operated as a duo of enforcers, they also were a part of the superhuman squad of the Crimelord, called the Force-Troopers. As such, they were deployed during the large battle in Dallas involving the Crimelord, the Syndicate, Checkmate, the Titans and the Darkstars.

Neither Coven nor Slagg have been seen since this battle.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Slagg seems to genuinely care about Coven, and they are protective of each other. He lets her do the talking and take the decisions, as she seems to be more determined, aggressive and resourceful than him.

Slagg and Coven serve the Crimelord in part because betraying him would result in the death of their relatives.


Quotes

“C’mon, let’s vent some rage !”

(After Guy Gardner slams Coven against a wall) “Hon, are you hurt ?”

Equipment:

  • SLAGG SUIT HELMET [BODY 08, Radio communications: 07, Sealed systems: 04, Shade: 02, Drawback: All Perception Rolls have their OV/RV increased by one CS whilst the HELMET is on, Note: the OV/RV for yanking the HELMET off the SUIT is 05/07, with one or more RAP meaning success.] Since Slagg doesn’t always wear the HELMET, I have assumed that there was a drawback to doing so.
  • SLAGG SUIT [/STR/ 09 /BODY/ 08, Flame project: 09. Note: without the HELMET, the SUIT offer Partial Protection (-3CS Trick Shot to Bypass) and no longer protects from most perception-based and aerosol attacks].
