Took me long enough to get this up. <_>
Alias: Sunfire. A closer translation of his name is "Sun flame," but since he found it awkward to say, he went with something else.
Personality: Like most of his race, Zorand'r believes in strength and courage. He doesn't take it to the extremes some others do, and won't bash anyone for not being strong, but he's still got a love for battle. As he's yet to undergo the Transformation, he's a bit immature and hotheaded, but still reasonable. He's terribly curious about human culture, and is somewhat nosy because of it.
Abilities: Zorand'r has most of the typical abilities of his race. He's easily much stronger than a normal human, but of average strength compared to superhumans. He can manifest bolts of energy from his hands. Depending on how much he charges them, their strength ranges from a harmless flash to an explosive. Unlike most of his race, he cannot fly. His journey to Earth weakened him severely, and he's all but forgotten how to do it. The most he can do is hover for a few seconds, or boost his jumping.
Other: Zorand'r is not a human, but a Tamaranean.
Physical appearance: Zorand'r is lithe and muscular, but his height makes him look slightly disproportionate. He's 6'3", and has athletic muscles that are built more for speed than power. His skin is very tanned, and has a slight gold tinge to it due to his race's natural skin colour. Zorand'r's hair is long, often kept tied back into a ponytail, and is dark red in colour. His eyes have slightly green-tinged scleras and much darker green irises, giving him a distinctly inhuman appearance.
Costume: A slightly upgraded Tamaranean warrior outfit serves as most of Zorand'r's costume. He wears a purple sleeveless shirt and purple pants as clothing, and covers them with bits of armour. A metal "collar" protects his neck and chest, while a large belt covers his waist and some of his stomach. He wears matching gauntlets, which are fingerless, and a pair of knee-high metal boots as well. All of the armour pieces have a round gem set into them in certain places: The center of the belt, the chest of the collar, the back of each hand, and the kneecaps. He does have a helmet, but it was broken beyond repair when he arrived. His metal undersuit was also damaged, so he now goes without it. He kept them for nostalgic reasons.
History: Born and raised on Tamaran, Zorand'r was raised to be a warrior. Throughout his childhood, he was trained by both his father and mother to be a fighter. They taught him how to fly, how to manifest his power into energy, and how to turn his body into a deadly weapon. At the age of 10, he already knew how to handle Tamaranean weaponry with extreme efficiency.
Four years later, he was finally ready to become an official warrior. In a stroke of horrible timing and irony, Tamaran was attacked by an unknown force. Starships decimated the landscape, and only a few people managed to escape the onslaught. While most of the planet was left unharmed, Zorand'r's home was destroyed. While searching for answers in one of the ships that had been destroyed, he found more targeting data that lead to a planet called Earth.
He immediately dressed himself in a suit of armour and started flying. Without a ship or any way to boost his own speed, he drifted through space for three years trying to get to the planet. When he did finally reach the planet, he was pulled off-balance by the gravitational pull, and was sent careening through the atmosphere and into the ground.
The injuries he sustained nearly killed him, and left him with some minor brain damage. It had no effect on his intelligence or personality, but left his powers weaker than most Tamaraneans. A few months in rehabilitation left him able to perform at half-strength. After giving his warning about the unknown attackers, he was offered a place in a newly-formed team of superhumans. He gladly accepted.
