Slasher

(Jacob de la Font)


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.


Background

  • Real Name: Jacob de la Font
  • Marital Status: Widower
  • Known Relatives: Miquel de la Font (father), Lotta (wife, deceased)
  • Group Affiliation: Hack‘n’slash
  • Base Of Operations: Geneva
  • Height: 6’1” Weight: 190lbs Age: 38
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Blond


Powers and Abilities

Jacob (aka Slasher for his tactic of adapting a knife or even a paper’s cutting power and then enhancing it one thousand folds) is a technical conceptual metamorph: he can adapt the function of any item around him without adopting its shape. Then, a powerful psychical surge enhances said functions to dramatic levels: he has been seen demolishing a building with a single bullet adapted from a Glock.

He is also trained in different military skills (climbing, demolitions, basic combat techniques) and has a natural knack for extracting information from witnesses and security forces. Although he is a bit on the ugly side of male beauty, he nonetheless has incredible (and for his mate “Hacker”, incomprehensible) success with women, who find him lovely and charming.

He is telepathically bonded with Hacker and has been so for the last seven years, to the extent they can now act and move like a single man, even when they don’t exactly know what the other is going to do.


History

Jacob de la Font is the son of a Catalan soldier who exiled himself in France after the spanish civil war. His mother having a low fertility rate, his birth (when his father was 49) was unexpected.

Jacob discovered his powers, met his mate and lost his wife on the same day : a battle between metahumans crashed through his house in Lyon, killing his dear little Lotta. His metagene activated and he was able to survive and mourn his dear departed : only another man sympathized with him, the Interpol agent assigned to the case (Frank Schloessinger, aka Hacker) and who with Jacob’s help finally brought the combatants to justice.

Jacob later devoted his life to working 24/7 as a special, free metahuman opperative for different European security forces, under the name of Slasher.


Description

Jacob is a tall, tough man, with an ice cold stare. As Slasher he wears a long, black trenchcoat, black jeans and a red tight t-shirt, although he sometimes dons the particular suit of whatever agency he’s working for.

On the little moments he devotes to something similar to a “life” he likes knitted pullovers, his smoking pipe and blogsurfing in search of nifty gadgets around the world.


Personality

Since the death of his wife, previously happy-going Jacob became harsher. He sneers at the so-called superheroes and their lack of commitment to saving the innocent people around their battles (his priority over chasing his assigned target).

He tries to hurt (and hurts heavily) those who menace the common man, and will use the same degree of devotion to protect citizens from any harm.
