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 Kal El, set in Barcelona.

Powers and Abilities

Superior has the power to be more than a match to almost anybody, literally speaking. He can duplicate the powers of his enemy (in DC Heroes RPG terms, Mimic) and make them a bit more powerful (Power Reserve).

Without this power, Superior is still a magnificent hand to hand fighter, given his physical prowess (DEX, superhuman strength and durability) and adventuring training (Acrobatics, Thief, Weaponry).

He also has an incredible presence and manage to get people, even alien people from a just arrived planet, to like him (INFL, AURA, SPIRIT, Attractive).

Many adventurers and bounty hunters through the galaxy consider Superior to be practically perfect.

History

Superior was stealing the treasure of a dragon on a distant planet, and completely defeated the lizard. When the dragon bartered to have his treasure back, Superior agreed to return him half of it in exchange of information to a greatest adventure.

The dragon told Superior about a planet where he’d find great enemies, hidden treasures and beautiful women. Superior was thus tricked into leaving for the dismal Planet Z.

He spent two weeks there, not finding any opportunity to fight or seduce. Then he met Thunderer, Crusher, Power, Sorcerer and Anathema. Superior decided to join the Council.


Description

Superior is particularly handsome. He is quite human looking, except for his golden eyes and the orange dots at his chest. He has a thin moustache and beard, like a musketeer.

Superior wears a modified version of the Council’s dark grey suit, with a buttoned front like the one of a chemise. The suit has 7 black dots on its chest.


Personality

Superior is the space version of the AD&D swashbuckler. A girl in every port, brilliant, cheerful, brawler, troublemaker, daring… He can be a pirate, a thief, a treasure seeker or a gods defier, depending of the time of the day.

As his power allows him to be better than his enemies, but not too much to make fights boring. He has fought all kind of characters, from semicosmic ones (in the Superman range) to bar-brawl ones. If he doesn’t need them any more, Superior uses to “lost” his mimicked powers after the enemy’s defeat.

The only ones Superior tries to avoid in combat are the Warriors of Okaara and the like, who can fight well through skill instead of physical might… something he can’t still match.
