Current Watchers

Character stats assembled using Heroes Unlimited Second Edition™


Centurion

Julian Capetti has come out of his retirement, and is officially an active member of the team. His public motivation for coming out of retirement was to help lead the new incarnation of the Watchers, hoping to train them from the beginning to follow in the footsteps of the original group. Privately, he enjoys the oppurtunity to fight again. When he feels that the new heroes are ready for independence he plans to take a much less active role, possible returning to his home in Italy. Julian realizes that compared to Yun Wei and Defender he has a short lifespan, and does not want to spend all of his remaining years fighting.

Modifications to original stats:


Defender

After years of slow regeneration Defender's body recovered from the radiation damage and he came alive. Within two weeks, Defender was in perfect health, but found that his mortal form had been burned away and that he is permanently stuck in his transformed state. He felt an immediate need to rejoin the cause of the original Watchers, and with Master Wei convinced Centurion to come out of retirement. He is the most active of the three original members in the current group.

After his "rebirth" Defender has a slightly different view of the world. His allignment has shifted from Principled to Scrupulous. He feels more urgency in his quest, having experienced something close to death. Because he has spent the years since his death in a regenrative coma his stats are largely unchanged, other than the permanence of his transformed state.


Floating Dragon

Master Yun Wei has always restrained his power unless he felt that it was absolutely needed. He is rarely in his dragon form when around others, but when alone finds himself there more often as the years pass. He rarely carries weapons, feeling no need. Most of his contribution to the team is as a moral compass and teacher. In particular, he enjoys training the new Watcher Fury in the martial arts and feels a connection to the young Watcher Warlock. If the team is faced with a very powerful foe, especially one he has fought before, he will join his teammates and pupils in battle, but usually he will stand aside and allow them to gain experience.

MarkV is a prototype advancement of the US Government Super Soldier Program, heavily utilized by the Citizen Project. He has been assigned to work with the Watchers to act as a liason, in addition to the obvious benefit of observing his powers in action. The Super Soldier Program is quickly being supplanted by other experimental programs, leaving him with little oppurtunity withing the traditional military structure.

History:
Titan inherited his namesake from his father, a founding member of the Watchers. He also inherited his Bio-Armor and Strength from his father; the Wings and Body Weapons come from his mother, also a founding member: Scream. Titan proudly accepts this legacy, but this background occasionally makes him overconfident and often dismissive of other heroes with lesser lineage. The privelage of his upbringing allowed him a superior education (for a superhero) and oppurtunities for extensive travel.

What he sometimes lacks in leadership he makes up with effort. His only fear is that he won't live up to his heritage.
Powers in Action:
Titan always uses his Bio-Armor (bright silver) to cover his wings when in combat situations. The power allows him to strengthen his wings and sharpen the edges. The armor actually allows him to streamline the wings providing a 10% increase in speed. A slicing attack with one wing causes 1D6x10 damage (no damage bonus due to PS, but those due to speed do apply). In addition to his wings, the Bio-Armor usually covers his head, chest, back, shoulders, forearms, thighs, and shins. His Body Weapons typically take the form of large claws on his hands and feet (4D4). His favorite attacks involve swooping in at high velocity, raking opponents with two sets of claws.

Description of Abilities:
Warlock has a Bio-Elemental Aura, lending her control over elemental forces. The aura lends her the ability to merge into elements, just as characters with Alter Physical Structure: Liquid can use Water Merge. This is a purely defensive ability, and maintaining it reduces her attacks per melee to one. She can maintain the form for one melee per PE point. For the ability to function there must be a large amount of raw elemental matter present (dirt/stone, plants). If she merges with the atmosphere she temporarily takes on a mist-like state, but not fully invisible, and is still vulnerable to energy attacks. Merging with earth and plant matter lends her a degree of invulnerability; the matter she has merged into must be destroyed before she can be injured.

Wraith

The Wraith used his powers as a private detective and body guard. His powers stem from a control of the molecular bonding of his body's structure. In battle with an enforcer named "Surge" he was electrocuted, nearly to death. The trauma forced him to use his powers as he never had before, and enhanced his Extraordinary PE to the Major Ability Invulnerability. His power over his body's bonding, the source of his intangibility and other powers, was the same source as his new power. Years later, Wraith is fully comfortable with his power. He is a straightforward fighter, but often prefers to use his Intangibility to evade a fight (which he knows he can usually win) and do what needs to be done.

Despite his disdain for the spandex scene he seems drawn to live his life in it. He refused for years to permanently team up with so-called superheroes, but has repeatedly found himself fighting against superpowered villains. He has seen too many innocents hurt by SPBs, whether the damage was intentional or not. Wraith joined this new incarnation of the Watchers because of their current goal: policing superpowered beings (good and bad) that abuse or misue their power.

His facial side effect isn't really a disfigurement; people often feel that there is something wrong with the way he looks that they can't quite put into words.Wraith typically wears a hat, hoping to keep his face shadowed and avoid the discussions. He generally wears normal clothes, mostly dark colors, and a long coat (an affectation originally picked up to go with the hat).
