Powers and Abilities

Stallion is a human who has achieved physical perfection, only to discover he wasn’t human at all the day a force field saved him from a bullet. Developing a way to project his force field as an attack, he can also create simple shapes – domes, walls, and such. Such fields are usually permeable on one side, but not from the other.

He is also a natural at many physical activities, such as gymnastics, martial arts, and piloting. He is extremely brave and strong-willed, and though he has no skill at speaking to crowds, has a strong personality.


History

Jason Darkhaven was a man with a goal – to become as perfect an athlete as he could. Three of his friends had become metahuman heroes, and he decided he could join them if he could only achieve his goal. Working day and night, he finally decided he had reached this goal, and went to help them on a mission.

When a gunman opened fire, he dodged, only to be hit anyway. Instinctively, he activated a force field, and discovered that he was, in fact, a metahuman. Over the next few years, he and his friends built up a bulletin board system on their computers to coordinate Chicago area heroes, and called themselves the Network.

Following the breakup of the Network, Stallion took over the bulletin board. He turned the series of heroes that used it into the Paragon League. Recently, he has upgraded this to a full secure web server, and coordinates the actions of over two hundred heroes worldwide, as the leader of the single largest organization of metahumans in history.


Description

Stallion is a tall, athletic man with a swimmer’s build.

He wears normal clothes in his civilian identity, but his hero costume is a simple grey bodysuit with boots, gloves, and full face mask, and a chess knight over his heart.


Personality

A bold, dedicated man, self-sacrificing, and honest, but not above a little force to solve a difficult problem.
