Name: Donny Li Yang
Codename: Black Beast
Declared Allegiance: Free-Agent
Birthplace: Fresno, California
Appearance: Five feet six inches in height, weighs one hundred ninety pounds. Has short black hair and dark green eyes, needs to wear glasses. However, when he takes on the form of "The Black Beast", he becomes an amorphous black blob. In this form various bone-like appendages and other organs may be seen, but not all of them belong to him.
Costume: As the Black Beast, the only article of clothing is a white mask, with it's only feature being that it has three holes near it's center. Despite being a mask, the Black beast does not actually have a "face" per say, or anything resembling a head, and the mask simply serves as a medium for communication.
Civilian clothes: His usual attire consist of long cargo pants, a graphic t-shirt, and his custom jacket, with various pockets and pouches inside and outside. He may sometimes be wearing a pair of black gloves when it's cold or he's doing heavy duty work.
Origin: The Event
Shapeshifting - Specifically, into the Black Beast, an amorphous blob creature. There are many benefits as well as disadvantages of taking on this form.
Advantages: The Black Beast has a liquid-like consistency, allowing him to free change his shape and form to suit whatever needs he may need at the moment, from squeezing through a tight space or allowing bullets and blades to past through his body without lethal effect. The Black Beast can change his size as well, from a small as an insect to larger than a two-story building. As the Black Beast, he can also access a personal "Hyperspace", that is to say, he can insert and extract any number of objects into/from himself no matter the size of said object or what that object is. Lastly, it appears that the Black Beast is capable of utilizing various illusions, from creating a powerful light to illuminate the darkness or blind someone, creating a sound to lure away people or discombobulate them with a simulated sonic boom, or even turning himself or other things invisible, and various others tricks to the senses.
Disadvantages: As one can imagine, the Black Beast has a hard time communicating with other humans, as it is unable to make coherent speech. That and it's odd and sometimes horrifying appearance can make social interaction with others strained and difficult. And while the Black Beast boasts a powerful defensive and agility ability, his own physical strength leaves much to be desired. As the Black Beast, he cannot even utilize the full strength he wound if he was fully human, due to his liquid like body being unable to resist the pressure built up, preferring to instead dissipate and allow it to flow through. This makes it difficult for the Black Beast to, say, hold a heavy door open or lift a particularly weighty box without simply consuming it.
Other skills: Outside his abilities as the Black Beast, one might mistake Donny as a thief; he's good at getting around unnoticed, open locks with just a bent paper clip and a screw driver, steal a man's wallet from his butt pocket, and can rob a whole store blind before they even glance at him. He's also dabbled in some chemistry for explosives, acids, and poisons, as well as some medicines, but mostly explosive, acids, and poisons.
Personality: Donny is, frankly, a rather boring person. He does his best not to really be interesting, as it gets in the way of his job. He's a rather nice and polite fellow, and does his best to keep his emotions in check. But he's not without his share of flaws. Off the job he goes and looks for fights, and not even that. He'll just go around with a knife and start cutting people, to let out his anger. In this city, it's easy finding someone no one would mind if they get nicked or slashed. Otherwise though he's mostly a follower, and while he's decent enough to organize a small group, anything larger is out of his ability.
Political Affiliation: Liberal 0
Religious Affiliation: Christian 0
Ambitions: Wants to rule a country, as a wild ambition. Finding and scoring a hot wife is a more realistic one, and than being able to raise and support a family with a son and a daughter.
Background: Be as detailed as you like, or leave it mysterious. The government would do more extensive background checks, but if you want to hide a dark secret from everyone else, you can reveal it later. However, even if you're planning on holding out on the other players, you should PM the information to me. One important thing to include is how you came to be on a government team, whether you applied or were approached after using your powers in public.
Job(s): Current or most recent employment, besides being super. Most people need a cover identity.
Relationships: Not just romances. Not everyone is a lone wolf. Briefly mention close family, friends, perhaps a significant pet.
Preferences: Likes, possibly dislikes. Note that there are some really obvious things that most people like or dislike, so telling me that your character hates genocide is dumb.
Role: How they fit into the story. They might be a party member, a recurring character, a boss, a one-hit wonder, or more a piece of setting than a character.
Notes: Anything you wanted to add, but didn’t fit into one of the other categories.
