Springer


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

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 a RPG campaign run by writeups.org contributor Bil.


Background

  • Real Name: Steven Champlain
  • Marital Status: Single (probably for a loooooong time)
  • Known Relatives: Elise Champlain (Rebound, sister)
  • Group Affiliation: The Alliance
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Height: 5’8” Weight: 130lbs Age: 29
  • Eyes: Hazel Hair: Sandy Blond


Powers and Abilities

The older brother of Rebound, Springer is almost as nimble as his sister, but can leap farther. In a single jump, he can easily clear twenty miles, and has theorized that he would achieve orbit should he push his leaping abilities at all, something he would not survive. In addition, he is possibly the worlds greatest genius, especially in the area of theoretical sciences and quantum mechanics.

He has designed and built every piece of gear the Alliance uses as a team, and also is responsible for Dimensionally Transcendental Fibers, a form of Plot Devicium used for Insta-cange and to explain costumes that morph with the weilder, or don’t ever tear. There are very few areas of intellectual achievement he has not mastered.


History

Springer and Rebound are metahumans with virtually identical powers, save for Rebounds instinctive deflection ability, and Springer’s incredible genius. He was a founding member of the Alliance, in Memphis, and has stayed with the team except for a brief hiatus looking for his sister.


Description

Average height and rather thin, he has absolutely no sense of fashion, so hides his civvies with a lab coat most of the time.

His heroic costume is tan cargo pants, and a tan jacket that closes like the B5 uniforms. He wears a red mask.


Personality

Springer in a fight is a whirling dervish, reacting at speeds most humans cannot concieve of, lashing out with powerful kicks at his foes. Out of combat, he is the classic absent-minded genius, building incredible technologies out of boredom.


DC Universe History

He could follow the same suggestions as listed for his sister, or could perhaps even be a hybrid Coluan/Human with a random genetic twist thrown in.
