History

Marcos discovered his powers during a journey to the Catalan volcanic zone of Garrotxa . After breathing the gas from a crater, his metagene activated.

That moment on, his powers has been evolving:

  • At first summoning lava (or volcanic stone by cooling it).
  • Later on, some air-walking.
  • These evolved into full flight, and flames projection.
  • Now he can even keep his skin armor under the flames.

    Besides his powers, Marcos is a good journalism student, and learns quickly. For instance he learned to use swords and guns within days.

    A dimensional  jump also endowed him with strange medical knowledge.


    Description

    Marcos is a strong 20 years old. He has light brown hair that disappears when he turns into flames or stone and blue eyes that turn completely red when Flame Being is on.

    As Pedra Roja he wears an outfit that’s a cross between a weight lifter suit and a military one. If you’ve seen Dragon Ball, it’s the kind of suit the Silver Commander wore.


    Personality

    Pedra Roja never liked his powers. They make him look like a weirdo and he doesn’t like that.

    But, with the Barna Patrol, he has discovered a new family, one added to his natural one, and also that his powers can be used for good, and so they have a reason to exist. And why not enjoying them ?

    He is a good boy, and sentimental, although sometimes he tries to hide it with a tough attitude. But he can also be sweet and, whenever the situation requires it, a hero.

    Pedra Roja wants to be involved in a Romance Subplot with his chief at the TV he’s free lancing for, Barbara Cubla. But, five years older than him, and though she likes Jorge, she doesn’t look like wanting to get that involved with him.

    The earnings from his first works at TV and a lottery prize are the reasons of his extraordinary wealth.

    Look at Ariadna’s write-up, but the Barna Patrol fits perfectly on DC Universe’s Barcelona.
