Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

The Fifth Element is a 1997 French science-fiction action epic. It is an over-the-top movie with a semi-gonzo plot, and lots of scenery-chewing. It is particularly notable for its rich, inventive visual designs and adolescent spirit.

Leeloo is a beautiful an naïve alien girl who crashes on the future Earth after a space battle, and is hunted by an entire army of space orcs out to kill her. So I’d assume that it was a Tuesday.

Powers and Abilities

The Fifth Element has evidenced :

  • Superhuman strength (enough to punch through “unbreakable” plexiglass).
  • The ability to survive crashing through an armored car’s roof relatively unharmed.
  • Enough speed and combat ability to take large numbers of skilled, powerful alien warriors without any difficulty.

History

Leeloo, a perfect human-like being, is the Fifth Element, the final key for an ultimately powerful weapon against evil. Brought to Earth by a Mondoshawan  ship in time for the evil’s onslaught, she was believed destroyed but Earth’s best techs regrew her from a few cells.

Fan-made “trailer” focusing on Leeloo, for examples of the movie’s visuals :


Description

Leeloo moves, speaks and smiles in an unique, elfin way that enhances her already tremendous beauty.

Leeloo has dot-matrix tattoos of the symbols of the 4 elements (earth, wind, fire, and water) arranged in a square on her left wrist. The 5th is, of course, her hand.

Personality

Leeloo is still quite young. Despite her enhanced mind she’s charmingly childish in her outlook, especially when she learns new words or concepts.

While very serious about protecting life, she’s more fragile and sensitive than she seems. Witnessing images of acts of war induced a crying fit, and serious doubts about whether or not humanity should be saved.


Quotes

Leeloo: “Hello.”
Korben Dallas: “Oh, so you speak English now.”
Leeloo: “Yes. I learned.”

“You no trouble. Me fifth element – supreme being. Me protect you.”

“I don’t know love. I was built to protect not to love, so there is no use for me other than this.”


DC Universe History

The Fifth Element has its own self-contained mythology, and upstaging the final victories will be difficult.

One could also have a subtler encounter with Korben and Leeloo after the confrontation with the Great Darkness. The two of them might have gone on to explore the universe they had saved, with Leeloo learning the joys and tragedies of human existence in more detail and the jaded Korben seeing the world through new eyes thanks to Leeloo.

They might also be found working to overcome residual elements of the return of the Evil — it may have minions other than Zorg or inspired other villains in its wake.
