Unoriginal Character: Please Steal

Well we already got some Alt*Hero fan art so let’s do some fanwriting.

https://freestartr.com/project/althero/

Hero Name: Snow Devil

Nationality: Finnish

Alignment: Undetermined

Appearance: Unremarkable, Average height, medium build if exceptionally well toned. Usually with a short beard*. Very much a grey man, which suits his desire to remain unnoticed.

Powers:

Enhanced Strength and Speed: Not terribly strong by Sequens standards and he does need to avoid close combat with more powerful opponents or melee combat specialists.

Camouflage: Snow Devil can make himself far more difficult to see, provided that there is at least some natural camouflage or hiding place to work with.

Light manipulation and minor illusions: Appears to be related to his camouflage ability but Snow Devil has not fully grasped how to use this aspect of his abilities or what the exact limitations are.

Greatly Enhanced Situational Awareness: This allows him to get the drop on much more powerful opponents.

Draw power From Cold: Snow Devil is able to use the temperature difference between his core body temperature and the ambient to fuel or strengthen his abilities. He doesn’t really understand how this works only that the colder it is the stronger he gets.

Instinctive Polyglot: Snow Devil learns new languages in a matter of days if not hours. Note that this applies to spoken languages and not written forms. He can barely read Finnish, never mind English or Russian.

Speak to Animals (Reindeer): Yes he can talk to reindeer. It doesn’t make sense to him either but then again none of this superhero stuff does. Also note that it’s talk to reindeer, not command or charm them.

Non superpowered skills:

Exceptional outdoorsman and survivalist

Very skilled hunter and rifle marksman

Adequate pistol marksman: He can use a handgun but he’s not particularly skilled.

Skilled driver: Above average anyway.

Good Mechanic with some knowledge of operating heavy machinery.

Adequate medical knowledge: About at the level of a typical paramedic.

Fast Talker: Can bluff or charm his way out of a lot of situations.

Flaws and weaknesses:

Alcoholic and Antisocial: Even by Finnish standards.

Uncomfortable in cites or crowds: Likely related to his enhanced senses and alertness.

Prone to brooding and inaction.

Tactics: Snow Devil relies very heavily on his secondary powers and his mundane skills. He fights in a hit and run or ambush predator style. He is also very quick to withdraw if he believes he is outmatched. He is well aware that he simply cannot go to toe-to-toe with a physically stronger opponent like Captain Europa or Michael Martel.

Goals and Motivations: When we first meet Snow devil he has two mutually exclusive goals;

-Lay low and avoid the attention of the Global Justice Initiative

-Intimidate and deter the Russian military from invading his home country

Naturally something has to give. Snow Devil is well aware that he is living on borrowed time but he has yet to come up with any solutions. He does have friends and some contacts in the Finnish military but he been very careful not to reveal the full extent of his abilities. He has also been quietly making friends (or at least drinking buddies) with some of the Russian border guards in an effort to keep a line of communication open.

 

*He likes to shave when he goes into town; usually with hatchet or a large knife.
