Powers and Abilities

Aaden possesses no extraordinary powers beyond the high endurance and modest claws that all Mephits have. He is a avid bodybuilder and ’health nut‘ and keeps himself in top physical condition. He is conversant with most types of weaponry from his time in Backwater, a ’retro-primitive‘ area of Pendor with a sword-and sorcery type culture.

He is an accomplished botanist, and a talented pilot of atmospheric craft. He also posses the AI network implant, a fairly common trait of Pendorian scientists and researchers.


History

The man who would become Kennet Shardik was a highly imaginative and slightly alienated college student in modern-day New Hampshire, who, through a series of events to complicated to go into here, came into possession of an extremely powerful technological artifact, possibly from another universe.

Offered a chance to do literally *anything* by Fawn Eldar, the AI who made up the central component of the artifact, Ken decided to create his own personal world. Using Fawn’s incredible powers (Continuum Control among them, certainly…) Ken sought out the aid of a reclusive Greek goddess (another long story…), and traveled back in time to construct the massive, Larry Nivenesque ringworld of Pendor to be built around a nearby star. Fawn then transported the whole thing to a ’pocket dimension’, for further work.

Using Fawn’s technological resources, coupled with his own innate genius for genetics, Ken gave Pendor a working biosphere, teeming with life and diversity. He then set about creating a sentient population, genegineering several species up from Terran animal stock and using advanced nanotech to make each Pendorian native functionally immortal.

Deciding to bypass the messy business of evolution and social development Ken helped his ’children’ build a near-utopian society based on mutual respect, personal responsibility, and just plain common sense. When all this was finished, Fawn returned Pendor to the normal universe in the Terran year 1990, and Ken made his presence and accomplishments known to the world of his birth. And that’s when things start to get interesting.

’The Journal Entries’ chronicle bits and pieces of the next 1200 years of Pendorian history, focusing on Ken’s unique position as a sort of laid-back, user-friendly Demigod to his people. They tell of his home life, his friends and family, his adventures on Pendor and out into the galaxy. They also detail the odd love-hate relationship between Pendor and Terra, as Terran society moves out into the stars.

Any GM worth his salt should find a wealth of adventure hooks.


Description

Aaden is a Mephit, a race genegineered by Ken from terran skunks. He is considerably taller and more massive than most of his folk, standing a few inches over six feet and weighing in at 200+ lbs of carefully sculpted muscle, clearly defined, even under his thick black and white fur.

He has a white stripe that starts on the bridge of his blunt, pointed-chin muzzle, and runs up over his short-furred head, down his back and back up his immense bushy tail. He has largish ears set high on his head, and sexy dark eyes. His favorite casual outfit consists of black silk blouse pants, and a green vest with multiple pockets worn over his otherwise bare chest.


Personality

Aaden is generally rather quiet and slightly inscrutable. He is capable of speaking well to an audience, and of flashes of exuberance and energy. He isn’t the easiest person to get to know, but he’s easy to be around, polite and amiable. He is a dedicated sensualist, even more so than Ken, taking great joy in food, sex, exercise and good hard work.


DC Universe History

In the DC Universe, Ken might have kept Pendor in it’s little ’pocket‘ (possibly the same little sub-universe that New Genesis and Apokolips exist in?) to keep it a safe step back from a much more active and turbulent interstellar society. It’s possible that he revealed his presence by sending Pendorian troops to aid his birthworld during the Invasion.
