Reflect Kinetic Energy Any kinetic damage the character would take (from falls, explosions, punches, kicks, bullets, arrows, swords, clubs, force attacks, etc) is instead doubled and reflected back upon the object which inflicted it. The character takes no damage from the attack. This power also doubles the damage the character does with melee or thrown attacks. The character is immune to knockback. This power is always active and can only be suppressed when the Protective Kinetic Energy Field is active, or by Jake’s special suit.
Manipulate Kinetic Energy Protective Kinetic Energy Field. While active the character is protected from kinetic attacks (falls, explosions, punches, kicks, bullets, arrows, swords, clubs, force attacks, etc), reducing their damage by half. This effectively cancels out the ability of Reflect Kinetic Energy for its duration. The character loses one action due to concentration for every 15 seconds the power is maintained. It lasts a maximum of 5 minutes per level.
Manipulate Kinetic Energy Increase kinetic force. The character can increase the velocity of a thrown item for double damage OR double range (-2 to strike). He must physically hold, charge with kinetic energy, and hurl the item. The act of charging and throwing an object counts as one melee attack.
Power Channeling Characters with this power have an awesome ability to generate and channel kinetic energy. The character creates a kinetic surge within himself when he attacks someone with his physical body (not a weapon) and releases this energy on contact. This energy release allows the character to deliver punches, kicks, head butts or flying tackles that can damage metal, concrete, or armored targets! P.S. damage does NOT add to this power’s damage. • Body tackle damage: 1D6 +1D4 per level.
• Head butt damage: 1D6 +1D6 for every two levels.
• Punching damage: 1D6 +1D6 per each level.
• Power Punch: 6D6x2 but uses up four melee attacks/actions.
• Kicking damage: 2D6 + 1 D6 per level of experience.
• Jump Kick: The above kick damage x2! But it uses up ALL melee attacks/actions and must be the first attack of the melee round.
Deflect Kinetic Objects This is a kinetic energy parry that can deflect/ knock away a bullet, arrow or thrown object (but not punches, stabs, kicks, etc. , connected to a living body). The deflection works just like a normal parry, roll a D20 to use kinetic force to parry the projectile. The usual bonuses from P.P and skills are not added to this “mental” parry, but the character is +4 to parry using this aspect of his power. Only one object can be parried at a time; a hail or arrows or bullets cannot be parried. Also note that if the item is deflected, it means it could hit somebody standing on either side or above him.
Kinetic Redirection Any object the superbeing has held, charged, and thrown can mentally be directed to do one thing from this list while it is in motion. Only one “redirection” can be performed per thrown object, and it uses up the next attack/ action to do. • Return after it strikes.
• Curve left or right to hit a target not in its direct path.
• Suddenly drop or jump higher by 1ft per level.
Suddenly stop in front of the intended target, stay suspended in the air for 1-2 seconds, then drop harmlessly to the ground.

Character Bio:

Cavalry’s a recent addition to the heroes in Century Station. He developed a reputation for collateral damage in his old hometown of Philadelphia – so much so, that for a while one could even buy a simple tee-shirt with the phrase “Cavalry Happens!” on it. He doesn’t deliberately cause the chaos and mayhem associated with his exploits – he just has trouble keeping his powers under control.

A virtual/ technological villain calling itself “The Mind” clashed with Cavalry several times in Philadelphia. During one of their fights, Cavalry managed to accidentally destroy the Liberty Bell! At this point Philadelphia had enough of him and basically ran him out of town. He wasn’t in Century Station for long before he came to the attention of The Geist and was recruited to join S.A.V.I.O.R..

Cavalry has a pet cat named Harvey. It was a stray he found and brought home to care for during one of his early encounters with The Mind.
