ABILITIES/ POWERS DESCRIPTION NOTES
Multiple Personalities Whenever something is brought up that challenges Carl’s current worldview (i.e., that he’s not a mutant with multiple personalties), there is a cumulative 10% chance that it will draw out either Alice or Trip. If that chance reaches 50% or higher, the personality which is drawn out will be The Beast. Or a change can occur in one of five circumstances (see Note). 1. Severe Shock or Trauma: Personality best able to handle the situation takes control.
2. Coma or near death: Random (1 Alice, 2 Trip, 3 Investigator, 4 The Beast).
3. Telepathic attempt to force: 65% chance desired personality will show, otherwise random (1 Alice, 2 Trip, 3 Investigator, 4 The Beast). +4 to save if purpose of probe is known.
4. Hypnotic attempt to force: 30% chance desired personality will show, otherwise random (1 Alice, 2 Trip, 3 Investigator, 4 The Beast). +3 to save vs this use of the power.
5. Mind wipe: Automatically fails but brings out a random personality (1 Alice, 2 Trip, 3 Investigator, 4 The Beast).

Character Bio:

Carl is the youngest of three brothers. His oldest brother is a Professor of History (with Tenure) and his next oldest brother is a Doctor.

His family is Upper Middle Class – his Father is an investment banker and his mother is a lawyer who specializes in prosecuting anti-superhuman cases for the government.

Carl is the “black sheep” of his family by going to school for a blue-collar job. “Why doesn’t he just work with computers? Then at least he’d be working with his mind, not his hands.”

His abilities manifested when he was 15. The “cause” of his mutation was an unknown, random element – a complete mystery. His mind rejected his mutant abilities, unknowingly fracturing his mind into various personalities. Carl unknowingly uses his shapeshifting power to maintain his “normal” look.

He’s going to school to become a pilot. He’s completed most of his practical courses and just has a year’s worth of ancillary classes in order to finish the degree.

He enjoys racing cars in his spare time.

He enjoys anime and one in particular, “Assassin Dolls,” is his favorite. He owns an “official” cosplay outfit for the main character.

No matter how much he works out, he can’t seem to “bulk up.” This is because his form is the result of shapeshifting and not natural, though of course he doesn’t know this.

Character Bio:

Alice is one of the multiple personalities of Carl Weisman. She is aware of her fractured mind and knows she’s one of several personalities. She knows about Carl and about Trip, but not about The Beast.

She finds it a bit strange that she’s a 10-year-old girl while the other personalities are adult males.

If pressed about her family she tells others that she’s Carl’s niece.

She is the real-world spitting image of the main character from the popular anime “Assassin Dolls,” which is a series about pre-teen girls who go around killing people. The character wears gothic-lolita clothing and she has access to several of these outfits.

Believes Japanese is her “native” language.

His friends call him “Trip.”

Heavenly Investigator
Sergei Yagovich Isledov



Description: 6’7″ tall.  Sasha is a tall, blond, muscular man of Slavic descent.  His grey eyes could only generously be called warm.  In fact, slate is warm compared to his gaze.  He rarely smiles unless he is ending evil.  While he often carries a sword in the mental spaces of the beast, he does not actually know how to use it.  His wings are 20′ across and made entirely of metal with white frosted detailing over a mirrored finish base to make it look like feathers.

When Extraordinary Abilities First Manifested: A few weeks ago

 

Character Bio:

Thanatos is unprincipled, and he knows it.  He appeared recently when Trip tried to hack the black box because he wanted to create an unshackled AI.
While the Beast knows all the thoughts of the other personalities…The Beast can’t read anything that Thanatos does while Thanatos has the body.  As The Beast said the first time that Thanatos took over, “So, that’s what it feels like for Carl when one of us is in charge.”
Thanatos knows everything about the black box that Carl et all know about the black box.  He doesn’t (yet) know who his true creator is, and is frustrated with how primitive most of the world is.  I’m thinking that when Thanatos takes over, he looks a lot like a cyborg Carl.  His hair is replaced by the black tendrils that have been coming out of the right arm, as well as a domino mask with a yellow glowing line pattern.  In fact…Thanatos found the tron movies somewhere (because of his creator?).  His skin is that grey color you see.  He’s wearing a sleeveless skin-tight shirt, pants and boots.  The boots are a little bulky.  He has the IO disk on his back, though he doesn’t know how to use it as a weapon, he does take it off to play with some of the time.  The face looks as described.  He has a thick yellow stripe on the right side of the shirt and concentric circles on both hips of the pants.  There is a stripe down the outside of both boots.  The stripes all glow, of course.
Personality wise, Thanatos tries to be super serious, and is trying to make sure everyone who shares his body stays alive…but he can’t hold onto it, as he is a bit of a trickster.  He blames this on emotional bleed from the other personalities.  Thanatos, if asked about his ‘Tron’ getup will claim to be a fully realized ISO in the real world.

Character Bio:

“The Beast” is what Carl Weisman could be if he had acknowledged his mutant nature when it first manifested.

The Beast is aware of all the other personalities and has access to the full range of Carl’s powers, mutations, skills, and special abilities.

When Carl first started attending college, The Beast decided to join a corporate-sponsored superhero team. Called The Power Professionals™ and sponsored by Helion Light & Power, they were ostensibly formed to reduce crime in the Dreadzones of Century Station. They didn’t know that their real focus would be to crack down on the rampant water and power piracy in the Dreadzones. The team consisted of:

  • Deluge, Water-controlling surfer dude.
  • Talon Seeker, Mutant bird-man with electrical senses
  • Robo Ruby, Cyborg muscle.
  • Ember Shot, Pyrokinetic sniper.
  • The Beast, Mutant pursuer.

The Power Professionals™ last mission was a famous failure. After a few moderate successes, Helion L&P decided to ramp things up by sending their team into the Labyrinth where the most utility piracy occurred. The City Council and Mayor Zardona refused to devote any city resources to help with this endeavor – the wounds of the Bloody Monday disaster were still too fresh. In fact, even their fellow members of the Council of Industry tried to tell them not to do this. But the more Hellion L&P was told what a bad idea this was, the more determined they became to go forward with it. Hellion went ahead and sent the Power Professionals™ in with a modest backup team of mercenary soldiers. None of the mercenaries survived and only two members of Power Professionals™ returned: The Beast and Deluge. Hellion L&P fired them on the spot for incompetence and tried to prosecute them, but backed down after the story went public.

The Beast was dragged out of the Labyrinth half-dead by Deluge. He remembered very little of the mission, and nothing of the events leading to everyone’s death. Since then however The Beast has remembered a little: a flash of Deluge arguing with Robo Ruby, and another flash of Deluge coming to blows with Ember Shot. He has begun to believe that Deluge betrayed them for an unknown reason. The problem is that since remembering these things he can’t find Deluge anywhere he’s looked, and all of Deluge’s online profiles have gone inactive.

The Power Professionals™ lasted long enough and fell apart famously enough that The Beast may be recognized. Each of the members of the team had action figures produced in their likeness, and these figures can be found in discount bins all throughout Century Station.

The corporate liaison who used to deal the team (Kirby Weiss) was aware of The Beast’s multiple personalities and knew how to manipulate Carl to draw out The Beast when necessary.
