History

See Rosie’s entry.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Steamroller is the only person on the Demolition Team who actually tried to kill somebody. More generally, he seemed busy projecting a cool, hip, edgy, dangerous image as a bad boy and manly man.

He generally just drives around and smashes into stuff. But if given a chance he will perform a more spectacular attack, such as finding some sort of ramp to jump on his target with his “bike”.

Inf: 03 Aur: 02 Spi: 03 Resources {or Wealth}: 004

Skills:

Advantages:
Familiarity (stunt cycling circuit).

Connections:
Demolition Team (High).

Drawbacks:
None demonstrated.

Equipment:

  • DT UNIFORM [BODY 05, Flame immunity: 01]. Rosie’s costume, or at least her gloves, seemed to have heat insulation properties (she could handle red-hot rivets without any discomfort) so I’ve liberally assumed a little bit of Flame Immunity for the uniforms of the whole gang. The standard Helmets have a BODY of 05 (though they can only protect against attacks on the top of their head) and *might* have Radio Communications.
  • CYCLE/STEAMROLLER [STR 09 BODY (Hardened Defences) 10, Running: 05. Note that the Hardened Defences do not protect the rider]. This improbable vehicle is actually fairly agile and a trained and experienced stunt motorcyclists such as Steamroller can use it to perform jumps and the like.
