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.


He is called TenDeath because each of his fingers is a deadly weapon. Against lesser opponents, he will use only one finger at a time (Trick Shot & Pulling Punch).

Against more powerful opponents, he will spend the first Phase dodging, the better to see what tricks the opponent has. If an opponent uses interesting tricks, Tendeath will “learn” them himself (like Goku from Dragonball) using Adaptation. Otherwise, he will simply use his normal abilities, substituting Superspeed for EV and Martial Artist for RV.

He should be role-played as a standard over-the-top animé -style martial artist, who shouts out names for each attack that he uses. For example, he won’t simply punch someone; instead, he’ll do the Whirlwind-Punch-Of-A-Thousand-Blows.

Much like anime characters, his study of martial arts seems to be the source of his powers (or at least, so he believes). He does not know of any “Speed Force”.

As a crimelord, he typically has dozens of nonpowered henchmen as well as the occasional superpowered thugs.
