Temper (Villains & Vigilantes RPG)



Villains & Vigilantes is an early (1979) pen-and-paper super-hero super-hero role playing game. We have a fairly large selection of characters from that game, with DCH stats.

They’re here in no small part due to nostalgia. But they also are interesting stock characters in that they can be easily inserted into stories, conveniently filling their niche.

Powers and Abilities

Temper hits opponent with anger and then run, hoping to sow chaos and infighting. He tries his best not to remain in the thick of combat. Sometimes, he Team Attacks with Mocker.


Emotionally unstable, Thomas Perry was treated with an experimental drug to allow him to retain control. It worked, but also activated latent mutant power. After some chaos, the drug (which worked fine) was tried again in more controlled conditions, but with the same results.

Perry realized the drug gave him power and fled with the remaining doses. A few days later he sneaked back and made the head physician kill himself, so nobody would gain the same powers as Temper.


The Temper costume is dark blue with red trim.


A cowardly teenager (aged 19) who enthusiastically follows Mocker.


“Don’tcha just HATE us ?”
