Wight

(Pico Fiorelli)


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.

Powers and Abilities

Wight is a skeletal undead monstrosity, covered in ephemeral musculature that fills his armor as if he had a solid body. His strength is somewhat greater than Vampyre’s, but less than Ghoul’s, and he can lift nearly forty tons. His ectoplasmic musculature is also inhumanly efficient, but since it is not purely ectoplasmic, he is not truly tireless.

As an Undead, he is resistant to cold, and has no need to eat, drink, or breathe (except to speak).

Wight is a tactician and swordsman. As the commander of a significant majority of the forces of the Doom Guard, he understands the basic principles of leadership, and actually practices them, unlike the other Undead. He may also retain some skills from his days as Pico Fiorelli, but either he chooses not to use them because of his honor code, or he has not yet encountered a situation where those skills would become useful.


History

Born as Pico Fiorelli in Mountainrock, he was a Made man since he could first hold a gun. He worked for the Carlotti crime family as an enforcer for twelve years, before he was sent to New york to help out The Master, as part of an agreement between the two families. There, he was taken into custody, and extradited back to Denver due to a considerable number of outstanding warrants.

Feeling the need to lay low for a while, Pico escaped, and went to ground.

Right about the time he felt it was safe to come out of hiding, he heard about a gathering of criminals, mercenaries, and others going down at an abandoned warehouse. Showing up just to see what it was all about, he was chosen to become one of the lieutenants to Blackblade, as one of the commanders of his rebuilt Doom Guard.

Thus, he was transformed into the armored, sword-wielding Wight.

With the initial defeat of Blackblade and the Undead, Wight has gone into hiding with the other Undead. He chafes under Vampyre’s leadership, and plans to take the reins away from him, someday.


Description

On first glance, Wight appears to be a large man in old, intricately inlaid armor, carrying a large sword. However, a closer inspection will reveal a skull-like face under his crown-like helm. He speaks with a whispering or raspy tone, with archaic phrasings and inflections, as wll as a hollow undertone.


Personality

Like most of the other Undead, Wight has no memories of his human experiences. As well, his personality has changed considerably.

Where he had been a brutal leg-breaker and enforcer, with a crude sense of humor, now he was a warrior. He actually possesses a rigidly defined code of honor, but that code does not prevent him from torturing innocents, killing someone in cold blood, or maiming a foe he does not feel is worthy.


Quotes

“Face the inevitable, Though you have given me a valiant fight, there is naught you may do against me !”


DC Universe History

The Undead could fit almost anywhere, trading their allegiance to the League of the Tomb to any appropriate necromancer.
