Agent Triangle (DC Heroes RPG) 1/2

Agent Triangle


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.


Powers and Abilities

The Agent has an array of robust psionic  abilities. These include flight, mental attacks, telekinetic blasts, mental illusions, psychic defenses, telepathy… This suite isn’t unlike Jean Grey’s.

Her intellectual, social and physical power have also been enhanced. Her strength her superhuman for her weight, she is exceptionally attractive, and she can focus on certain tasks (particularly investigation) to reach near-Batman levels.

History

Even before she had superpowers, Loren was an activist. She could not understand why she and other lesbians like her had to hide something that was perfectly natural to her. So she marched (and has been arrested) for her cause from the moment she entered college. She majored in psychology in order to help recently coming-out gays and lesbians adjust to being themselves.

Loren was participating in one of those cancer studies they do at the medical schools when the Gene Bomb  went off. She remained at the Medical College until the antidote was introduced into her system.

Once released Loren kept getting these awful headaches. She had a killer of one when she was at the Gay and Lesbian Pride festival. Maggie Sawyer, from Metropolis SCU, was speaking to several folks about protecting themselves against hate crimes when a homeless person burst into the room shouting how he was gonna kill that “damn dyke”.

Next thing Loren knew, the nutcase was curled up in a ball in pain, and her headache was gone.

Protector

Since then she has protected Richmond’s gay community under the name “Agent Triangle”, because no one else would. Not even the city’s other resident superhero, Sneaker. In fact, for a time he hunted her for the purpose of arresting her.

Then a cult to Kithra the Death Goddess arrived. They began a mystic mass-murder cycle that it took both Triangle and Sneaker to stop. This ordeal not only brought Agent Triangle the trust of the Richmond populace, but it was a time of revelation for herself as she found herself falling in love with Sneaker.

This romance was never reconciled, and she never came out as bisexual for fear that it might do more harm than good to the community. She keeps this secret up to this day…


Description

In hero ID she wears a black jumpsuit with silver outlining an inverted triangle. She has short dark hair and dark brown eyes.

She usually wears jeans and T-shirts in civilian ID. Also, she will only date men as Loren Price.
