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.

This specific character was part of the New Global Guardians campaign, run by writeups.org contributor Kal El.

Powers and Abilities

The effects of the radioactive waste in the river turned Luah’s skin pasty grey and made his hair fall off.

But it also made him superhumanly durable and regenerative. When Solar, DarkSun’s alter ego, burned a huge hole through Ghost’s chest, he fully recovered within minutes.

His muscles have recovered the strength of his youth and even more. He does not have to bother much about muscles ripping when exerting too much.

Another effect of the radioactivity is that he now can alter his looks and even his whole body density, steel hard to others but putty-like to his will.

Downsides

On the other hand, the transformation of Luah surely wasn’t directly derived from the toxic waste but from the kicking in of his metagene.

It may have something to do with either the homo magi or the Greek Amazons. Since he is also highly resistant to mental and mystical damage, and has developed a lethal vulnerability to the presence of non-forged, cold cast iron. This is something typical among some mythical creatures, as Valfadir has explained him.


History

After being covered in toxic, radioactive waste by a North American company in the Amazonian river while taking a bath, the aged native Luah was mutated. His recovery powers and his grey colour were considered a curse. He decided, on his own terms, to leave the tribes until he found a cure to his condition.

Meanwhile he did, he managed to destroy some illegal activities going through the Amazon. Doing so earned him an eco-terrorist fame all around Venezuela, Brazil, Bogatago and among some North American companies.

It was while burning some coca fields at Bogatago while ignoring the bullets of the soldiers while standing in the flames, that the New Global Guardians met him. He agreed to join the group to help rescue hostages held by paramilitary factions.


Description

Ghost II is an old man whose skin is covered by a grey, slick substance. Even when he changes his features, he still keeps the grey hue, and has to use make-up to resemble the usual human tone.


Personality

Ghost is a thoughtful old man who sometimes acts in very unpredictable and weird ways.

He understands most of the ways of the modern world, but that doesn’t mean that he accepts them. He has little use for social etiquette, dresses just with a g-string and touches and smells everything and everybody he finds. His best friend in the Global Guardians, for obvious reasons, is The Cowboy.

Luah firmly believes in the Old Traditions. He is strong-willed and can find holes in most people’s arguments, as his mind usually runs a path quite different than others’.


Quotes

Djinn: “We must depose that tyrant !”
HK-47: “We need proof.”
Ghost II: “Proof ? Tyrant ? Sorry, but I don’t understand you : I propose the way we’ve always followed in my tribe. Singular combat between those who want to rule and the winner is the new chief.”
