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 a RPG campaign run by contributor Bil.

Powers and Abilities

Render is at the peak of human strength, except in his forearms. There, his strength is superhuman ; his grip can deform steel.

Other than that, he is as much a loser as the rest of the Devastators.


An ex-con. His forearms and grip became superhumanly strong one day when he washed his hands in heavy water on his job as a janitor in a research facility.

He teamed up with the others to found the Devastators, and hasn’t had a break since.

Sometimes, he wishes he had bathed in the heavy water.


Second in command of the Devastators, and the second tallest. His costume is usually some combination of browns and blues.


Render is an annoying loser, constantly preaching about the strength of his grip, and getting angry at the sniggers and jokes about how his grip got so strong.
