Obviously alot of my older ones have been lost, so I couldn't post them, but I found as many as I could be bothered to and finally decided to make one of these threads......it feels good to look back at how my CSes have evolved over the months I've been here.
Used in The Outsiders and The Next Generation, both of which center around teenage characters who have developed superpowers, either through a recessive gene, in the case of Outsiders, or being the children of former superheroes/villains, in the case of New Generation, the sheet presented was used for outsiders.
Joseph Stackhouse, "Primate"
Spoiler(This case was filed by various agents of the University of Southern California Medical Center, Meta-Human Division)
Name: Joseph Jacob Stackhouse
Alias: Some of the members of our staff have dubbed him "Primate" and "Sun Wukong", though most within the wastelands, who have yet to see the full capabilities of his gene, have taken to calling him such things as "Monkey", "Silverback", and "Lemur".
- Birthdate: 6/09/96
Status: From what we've seen of him, we would classify him as a "Survivor"
"Superpower" (Yeah, this sucks compared to the one I wrote earlier): In a nutshell, "Primate" is able to shift his body into any animal belonging to the order Primates, and is even able to morph into more than one animal at the same time, entering a sort of "Hybrid" form.
In a detailed nutshell, after numerous tests run on the subject's blood after his mandatory medical analysis, it was discovered that said subject's Meta-Gene was altered by his childhood exposure to primate DNA, and if it were not for the exposure, Joe could most likely transform into any animal he wished, as long as it had existed at some time. However, due to the genes absorption of the foreign DNA signature when Joe was a child, he has been restricted to shifting into animals of the order Primates, albeit, at the cost of far less energy and focus if he were to be an all around "shapeshifter", and the primates he transforms into are far stronger and faster than the normal mammal, so, his restriction can also be called a benefit. However, the longer he spends in "full" animal form, the easier he is to tire and loose energy, although, if he were to only gain a monkey's tail and a lemur's eyes, he has been shown to be able to use them for an extended period of time.
It is also noteworthy that Joe's most common and easiest to perform transformation is that of a monkey, as it is the monkey's DNA that altered his meta-gene, the larger the primate, the harder it is for him to transform into, escalating from almost instantaneously to a maximum of fifteen seconds.
Personality: Joe has drastically changed since his childhood, after sprouting tails and being torn from his family, where Joe used to be megalomanically arrogant, he has now become reclusive and introverted, however, this is not to say he is a coward, as a matter of fact, it can be said he is the opposite, constantly getting into altercations with various other meta-humans (In which the opposing party has never escaped without at least two broken bones) within the wastelands, although most would call these "meaningless fights" it can be believed Joe does such things in order to assert his status amongst the metas, and to ensure he is not targeted by the more aggressive of the bunch, variably ensuring his own survival, something he has been unsure of ever since that fateful day in California.
Although it can be said Joe has become a generally cold person after being torn from his family, signs of the former person still exist, for example, he has taken on a childish hobby of transforming into a monkey or other relatively small primate and exploring the rooftops of the wasteland, and an even more often pastime: stealing various food items from other meta's while in animal form, although one would wonder why he would do such a thing when he constantly finds himself the target for fireballs due to it....perhaps he is just an extremely independent thrill-seeker?

Biography (As filed by Dr. Harold Fitzgerald after numerous interviews with and research into the subject and his parents.): Joseph Jacob Stackhouse was born in Davis, California to a pair of zoologists specializing in the research of primates, who were employed at the California National Primate Research Center. Expectantly, Joe's mother Wylla resigned from her position in order to raise the child, while the boy's father continued working in order to support the family.
During his childhood years, Joe excelled at things such as kindergarten and elementary school, seeming to be the proverbial "perfect child", intelligent, physically adept, and well-mannered. However, his father Jason brought him to the research center on the boy's seventh birthday, and it was here that the boy was exposed to monkey DNA by being bit by an aggressive specimen directly on the arm, the saliva of said specimen entering Joe's bloodstream, and eventually, coming in contact with the "Meta-Gene", astonishingly, the gene apparently accepted the signature without even a dispatch of white blood cells or anything, a rare anomaly indeed.
After his exposure to Primate, and more specifically, Monkey DNA, Joe's demeanor changed, although he still excelled at school and was athletically unmatched, he became something of a loner, pushing away those he used to call friends (which weren't many considering his lifestyle) with his almost god-like arrogance and self-confidence. He also became fiercely independent from his parents, something which the two scientists dismissed as a "teenage rebellious streak".
During his sophomore year in High School, Joe and the rest of his classmates were playing a heated game of dodgeball during physical education, and during the match, an unknown student hit Joe square in the face, driving the adolescent meta to the ground. Curiously, Joe almost immediately jumped back up to his feet with rage, and yelled out in a stereotypically monkey fashion, and his teeth began to enlarge, and of course, Joe ran out of the classroom in terror, thankfully, he found his way out of the school before he sprouted a tail.
After telling his parents of the incident, they feared for their son's safety, as there would no doubt be an investigation into the matter, and their colleagues at the university would no doubt become aware of the situation. The family hastily made it's way to New York, some months before the "Donnie Explosion", which they excused as a genetic phenomenon, and continued to keep their child's supernatural nature a secret (He had been spontaneously growing tails, enlarged fangs, and occasionally, fur.) although they were nearly arrested after they attempted to keep their son from complying with the June 1st mandatory medical exams.
Coinciding with his medical examination, Joe was torn from his family and placed within New York's "Meta wasteland" where he has found refuge in an apartment complex's luxury suite, which he has claimed for his own, only coming outside in order to gather necessities from the federal supply line, and all too often, to prosecute trespassers on his land, and ever so rarely, to playfully explore the wasteland in his animal form, causing mischief wherever he goes.
Curiously, his parents have accepted a tenure at a New York research center in order to complete research of the Meta-Gene's affect on animals, being some of the best zoologists in the world, they were two of the first contacted by the government.

Alfgeir Damphair, Brujah
(Alfgeir rising from the embrace)
Modernized Name: Alfgeir Damphair
Old Norse Translation: Alfgr Damfir
Mortal Culture: Norse Viking
Vampiric Age: 1,123 (or 1,124, dependent upon current IC date)
Position within Vampire Hierarchy: Former candidate for King of the United States, current Prince of California.
Age when embraced: 34
Date of Birth: 10/29/854 A.D.
Date of Embrace: 10/31/888 A.D.
Personality: Alfgeir, during his time as a mortal was the quintessential viking; a warrior of great renown, exceptionally loyal to both tribe and countrymen, a loyal follower of the Aesir. After his embrace however, Alfgeir's personality drastically changed, becoming a survivor in a world of darkness. Although it is mostly hidden behind his calm and calculating persona, remnants of what Alfgeir used to be still remain, to his clan-mates, he is the outspoken spokesperson of the Brujah in the United States and as a whole. To those that find themselves his underlings, he is generally a good leader, willing to sacrifice for the community, despite his usually harsh treatment of his subordinates. To those that cross him, he is still the fearless and passionate raider he once was.
Alfgeir, A History: Born to a tribe of Viking raiders of Norway, Alfgeir spent his mortal life in endless raids along the coasts of Europe, raping and plundering many a village in the name of the Aesir. One day, however, his band was beaten, and Alfgeir was taken prisoner, kept malnourished and beaten regularly within the vast hall of the Lord who's land he had tried to reave. During his imprisonment, the foreign Lord attempted to dissuade Alfgeir and his band from their faith in the Norse Gods and convert them to Christianity, Alfgeir, ever loyal to his gods, was one of the scarce few who refused to convert, and as such, was scheduled for execution.
During the proceedings and ceremonies before the deed was to be done, Alfgeir prayed to all the gods he could think of: Odin, Loki, Frigg, Freya, Heimdall, Tyr, Baldur, though there was one he prayed to more than any other: The patron God of his tribe; Thor, the thunder god. Alfgeir prayed to be saved, prayed for a miracle, for his captors to be struck by Mjölnir itself, anything that would save him from seeing Asgard before his true time had come, little known to Alfgeir at the time, his prayers would be answered, albeit not in the way he expected.
During the execution ceremony, Alfgeir was bound to a wooden post above all others, due to his rank as leader of the band. One by one Alfgeir witnessed his companions burn alive, and once the lord had come to his post, Alfgeir showed no fear, only whispering the faintest of prayers to the Goddess of Death herself. Before he knew it, the Lord's corpse was laid out in front of him, and Alfgeir was approached by a beautiful woman with radiant white skin, Alfgeir believed her to be a messenger or agent of Heimdall, and passed out from malnourishment before his life would change forever.
After he awoke, he found himself amongst a group of pale men and women, all clad in the familiar armor of vikings, one was even wearing a bear pelt as a coat, it was then that Alfgeir's sire explained to him his new life amongst the cainite society, after the customary denial and what not, Alfgeir accepted that there was no way he would survive his fledgling years alone, and joined the traveling coterie of Brujah.
After decades of fighting for his Norse brethren, pushing back Christian influence for as long as he could, Alfgeir witnessed the single greatest insult to his faith; the felling of Thor's oak. Although most history books would say this event took place a century and half or so prior, Alfgeir may be the only being alive who knows the true location of the sacred tree, thanks to his extremely fast and brutal slaughter of the perpetrators, draining them completely and feeding their remains to the wolves of the surrounding forest.
In more recent years, however, Alfgeir was one of if not the first Vampire to reach the new world, securing passage as one of the men of Leif Ericson's party. He lived amongst the new Viking colony, manipulating the population to willingly allow him to feed from them, in exchange for a portion of his own blood, this action would enable Alfgeir to learn of the benefits of ghouls.
Alfgeir, along with a few other kindred, saw the rise of the American empire, moving from viking colony to Native American lands, to the European immigrants' settlements, most notably being Massachusetts, some amongst the kindred even say that the so called "witches" of Salem were ghouls of the Viking's.
After centuries in America, Alfgeir was one of the forerunners in the first election of a Vampire King of the United States. His opponent: Aodh, the Toreador Methusellah. Aodh won the election due to the long standing rumors that Alfgeir's Salem ghouls almost killed several kindred, one of which would become Aodh's right hand: Richard Alphonse the third.
After his failed attempt at becoming a monarch, Alfgeir took up various positions of power in the newly found kingdom, from Prince of Pennsylvania, to Brujah Primogen in Las Vegas, although he has recently found himself in one of the most powerful positions: Prince of California, ruler of Los Angeles, although he has become aware, through his vast information network, of his former superior's death, and he has already begun to make his grasp for power.
- He wears a necklace from which a runic stone replica of Mjölnir hangs, a form of remembrance to his former life, and a sign of good faith to Thor, the God of Thunder.
- He still holds true to the faith of the Norse Gods, and has forsworn other religions from Judaism to Christianity to the Book of Nod, and as such, believes in the myth of Ragnarok, rather than the second coming of Caine.
- His undead body bolsters a large amount of ancient Norse tattoos, some believed to be wards of protection blessed by Odin, a symbol of Gjallarhorn, a wolf's head, the symbol of Fenrir, and a spinal tattoo of Jörmungandr, the terrifying Midgard Serpent.
Malkav, Antediluvian of the Kindred
Epithets: (Malkav) The Wise, The Mad, The Prophet.
Clan: Antediluvian founder of Clan Malkavian
Sire: Enoch "The True Father"
Malkav, the great antediluvian of the clan that has become his namesake and greatest achievement. His history is only known through legends and myths passed down by his childer and grandchilder, many believe that he was one of Gods' own angels, and one of the two-thirds that put down Lucifer's own rebellion, who was thrown from heaven himself for seeking to transcend his angelic nature. Malkav himself does not truly know what happened to him, but has convinced himself that he knows everything about himself, and would never reveal to anyone what he thinks he believes, rather, he gifts his descendants with bits and pieces of his origin, although these could range from being a fallen angel to being a prophet of the first city. Although there are as many legends of Malkav as their are people on Earth, all agree on one point: He was one of the first Vampires, being sired by none other than Enoch, who Malkav believes to be "The First Father", although history (and religion) has deemed him to be the childe of Caine, the mythical being who became the father of all kindred. Malkav is one of the few vampires old enough to know the truth behind vampiric religion, yet he finds humor in the modern vampiric beliefs, knowing that many believe them solely to be a creation myth.
Regardless of what the kindred believe to be Malkav's origin, there is one absolute truth: Malkav was embraced long before the great flood of Noah, and was a prominent figure in the city of Enoch before it's namesake would sacrifice himself in order to save his childer. Malkav, devastated by the loss of his sire, fathered many childer, ensuring the survival of the kindred, and securing his own legacy. After a couple of centuries, ensuring his childer's survival through teachings, he prophesied the return of Enoch, and decided he wished not to wait for such a time, and had his children dig him a grave where he would rest for millennia. It was then, thousands of years ago, that Malkav willingly gave himself to torpor, and through his potency of blood, he kept a prominent mental link with his descendants, which they would call the Malkavian Madness Network.
Through the years, the myths that were prophesied by Malkav and his children would become the basis of the Book of Nod, and rather than Enoch, Caine became the legendary father of Vampires, and Malkav's own prophecy of his return became known as Gehenna, the return of Caine. A few thousand years ago, Malkav was awoken from his great slumber by a rogue sect of Vampires known as the Sabbat, who believed that the antediluvians could help them in their quest to conquer human kind. Malkav destroyed the coterie that had awoken him, and instead of returning to torpor, found himself to be extremely hungry for blood. He returned to civilization, and more specifically, to Rome, where he would feed on many a mortal before he realized that he would be hunted solely due to his status as antediluvian, and used his great power of dementation to fool the entire night society into thinking he was a Toreador, the childe of the clan's own antediluvian, giving himself a place of both high power and respect. The name he took was Aodh, after the Gallic God of Fire.
Over the two thousand years of his rouse as Aodh, Malkav sired one childer: Isobel, who would become his personal plaything, her branch of insanity is not even known to herself, although Malkav would guess it is in concordance to her behavior in the bedroom. During his time in america, Malkav would rescue one of his own descendants: Richard Alphonse, from execution by mortal vampire hunters, and would take him under his wing through a blood bond, which has made Richard one of the strongest non-elders in the history of the Camarilla.
Recently, Malkav has become the proprietor of Caesar's Palace hotel and casino in Las Vegas, and has even become the Vampire King of the United States, using his position and power to take on many thralls and ghouls to quench his unshakable hunger for blood. He has also taken it upon himself to once again transcend the mortal realm, to achieve Golconda. He willingly gave himself to a group of magi, who attempted an ancient ritual, although it was interrupted by Malkav's childe along with a group of others. Enraged, Malkav set up the very event that would bring upon the great revelation of his true self: The Shattering of The Masquerade. Malkav was no fool, he knew of the Half-Vampire Nya's presence in the parking lot, and could've easily killed her and drank her blood, but instead allowed her to escape and reveal the night society.
Malkav smiled wickedly when Albert Manning, a descendant of his, ripped out the throat of many a news staff on live television, setting in motion an action that no Camarilla would ever adhere to: A massive raid of the vampire in question's home. The battle of Albert's Manor was quite the thing to witness, the war between Vampire and Werewolf had begun once again.
Malkav once again used Nya for his own benefit, as he appeared to her in the bowels of Richard's sanctuary, willingly allowing her to seduce his toreador alter ego, dementating her into believing that she had diablerized him, true, Malkav allowed his distant descendant to drink a portion of his own blood, but he was still very much alive. Now, after Nya left the sanctuary, Malkav simply got up form the ground and sat in Richard's own chair, laughing to himself, soon, he would reveal himself to the council of elders, and take complete responsibility for his actions.
- The Malkavian Madness Network is not what the Malkavians have made it out to be, rather than it being Malkav himself, it is the Antediluvian's link with his Vampiric descendants, and as his clan's blood gets more and more removed from his own, their curse of insanity becomes less and relevant and far less potent, along with their ability to contact their ancestor.
Benjamin Reilly, "Second Spider"
Assumed Identity: Benjamin Reilly
Goes by: Ben
Age: Ben is a clone of the original spider-man, Peter Parker, in his prime at the age of 22, but in actuality is only two or three months old.
Appearance (description): He is an exact genetic clone of Peter Parker after he was bitten by the radioactive spider, the same face, the same muscle tone, everything is the exact same, except for one thing, his hair. Due to a minute error in the cloning process, Ben was "born" with blonde hair rather than Peter's brown.
Personality: Ben, being a clone of Peter Parker, has many of the same mannerisms along with powers, from the same genius intellect, to the fun-loving attitude, he is prone to cracking the occasional joke, in and outside of his mask, often to the distaste of friends and foes alike. Due to being bred specifically for the war, Ben has developed somewhat of a bitterness to it, becoming somewhat minorly depressed, believing that he has nothing else to live for other then the war, which has completely enveloped his young life, he is far from self-conscious, however, he just doesn't know what will happen to him once the war is over, even if he survives it.
Powers: Being an exact replica of Spider-Man, he contains all of his powers, spidey-sense, wall-climbing, you name it, if Peter had it, so does Ben, though, unlike Peter, Ben was deemed too important to have the "short-comings" of Spider-Man, and as such, was genetically modified to have organic webbing instead of the hindrance of web-shooters.
Skills: The remaining mutants took it upon themselves to imbue Ben with as many of Peter's skills as they could, including his Genius level intellect in various fields of science, to his quick thinking and inventiveness, along with Peter's memories up to the age of 22, giving Ben the same level of mastery of his powers as Peter Parker up to that age.
Back-Story: Contrary to what most of New York wants to believe, Peter Parker is not only M.I.A. but also K.I.A. he was killed by the mutant hunter squad some five months ago, his death kept a secret to prevent riots across New York by the few remaining supporters of Spider-Man. Without Peter, the remaining mutants lost ground in the war, from the departure of Thor to Asgard, to the vanishing of Bruce Banner. It was because of this that the remaining mutants began a cloning program to bring back some of their most prestigious and needed members. It is unkown how the mutants came to possess Peter Parker's DNA, but nonetheless, they used it. Mutant scientists, such as Spider-Man's former nemesis Doctor Otto Octavius and teacher Curt Connors, even Bruce Banner (before he was captured) worked three months around the clock, twenty-four seven, working exclusively on clones of Peter Parker, failed clone after failed clone, one born with eight legs, one born with no limbs at all, the project looked to be a failure, until subject 149 was born, the perfect clone, subject 149 passed all of the genetic examinations to power tests, perfect wall-climbing ability, flawless spider-sense, he even possessed Peter's personality, to the dismay of some of the scientists on the job.
Although Ben possesses the same powers as Peter Parker, he was deemed too "young" to be placed directly into the role of Spider-Man, and as such, was placed with Gabriel Michaels, also known as the Omniknight, in the mutant retrieval squad where he could train his powers and learn the ropes, this is where he has been for the last few weeks, developing what he would call a "rocky" relationship with Gabe.

Vegeta, Prince of all Saiyans
Starting Power Level: 18,000
Current Power Level: 36,000
- Ōzaru: 360,000
Personality: Vegeta is one of the most ruthless beings alive, believing all weaklings to be expendable and near worthless, he is a true son of the Saiyan race, his pride in his combat abilities is more present than any of his other characteristics. Vegeta is not a man for mercy, only showing it to his younger brother Tarble during his youth when his father threatened to banish the peaceful Prince, even going to the extent of taking Tarble as a personal training partner to attempt to toughen him up. Vegeta has since dedicated his life to becoming powerful enough to destroy the galactic overlord Frieza; to avenge the Saiyan race would be the greatest moment in Vegeta's life, bringing back to light the fact that the Saiyans are the greatest warriors in the universe.
Recently however, Vegeta was exposed to his own weakness by the hands of Earth's protectors, they drove his body to the absolute limit, nearly killing the Prince if it weren't for his younger brother Tarble, this caused Vegeta to suffer somewhat of a breakdown, crying over the corpse of his friend and comrade, Nappa. Vegeta would still call himself a sole survivor, though he is worried about what has happened to Tarble now that he has crash landed on a distant planet. What now drives him is not only to see the death of Frieza, but to see the death of Raditz.

- Flight (舞空術)
- Instant Transmission (瞬間移動)
- Ki Sense
- Power Ball (パワーボール)
Bio: The Crown Prince of the Saiyan race was raised as such, being a true prodigy, he excelled in his combat training, being able to destroy a squadron of Saibamen by the time he was 15. Vegeta had a younger brother named Tarble some years before his planet's destruction, and, as an embarassment to the Saiyan Race, his father had almost banished the young Prince to a far-away planet, his status and most likely life only being secured after Vegeta appealed to the King for his brother's life, despite his ruthless nature, Vegeta has become attached to his brother Tarble, whether he would admit it or not. He even took Tarble under his wing as a training partner, the young man showing a keen liking to the sportsmanship of combat rather than the pure adrenaline.
Vegeta's life was forever changed when the tyrant known as Frieza destroyed his home planet only hours after Vegeta himself had been evacuated by his King Father of the same name. As a sign of obedience, and almost solely to secure his own life, Vegeta pledged lifelong service to the Galactic Warlord, dedicating his existence to the destruction of the man that had destroyed his once proud race. Vegeta was placed in an elite squadron of the last four Saiyans in existence: Himself, the once General Nappa, his brother Tarble, and the low-class Saiyan known as Raditz. Vegeta became something of a protector of his younger brother, the ruthless Nappa almost constantly calling him a disappointment. Vegeta openly accepts this at face-value, but does not cower away from Nappa, and constantly puts him in his place if he were to suggest killing his brother.
Some years after constantly taking over planets with his elite squad, Raditz was sent off to the planet known as Earth to retrieve what was believed to be the last remaining Saiyan: None other than Raditz's own brother Kakarot. During Raditz's mission, Vegeta, Nappa, and Tarble assaulted and thoroughly destroyed Planet Arlia, and after the sack, found out they were no longer receiving transmissions from their comrade's scouter, and decided to go to Earth to retrieve him, but soon came to the realization that Raditz had betrayed them after the income of a new transmission from Raditz's scouter the day after he landed on Earth.
After the Saiyans' entered Earth, Vegeta blew up the capital city of the entire planet in order to drive out Earth's defenders known as the Z-Fighters, he laughed at their pitiful power-levels and allowed his comrades Nappa and Tarble to deal with them while he dealt with the only other Saiyans on the planet, and perhaps in existence; Raditz and Kakarot. After some hour or so of fighting, Raditz and Kakarot unified in their attack and nearly killed the Prince, and while he was retreating to his pod, he leaped in the way of a Kamehameha wave aimed at his younger brother, driving Vegeta's body to near death, his brother getting him back into his pod, the Prince made his escape, but not until after he swore eternal vengeance on not only Kakarot, but Raditz for killing his good friend Nappa.
During his escape, Vegeta crash landed on Planet Yardrat due to lack of fuel, quickly being nursed back to health by the advanced civilization of the Yardrat people. As a way to repay the debt he felt he owed them, Vegeta saved the Yardrats' Vermilion City from the alien he used to call a comrade: Cui. Vegeta was hailed as a hero by the Yardrat, though he quickly informed them that he needed to be leaving in order to hunt down the galactic overlord who sent Cui to retrieve the Prince: Frieza. After some hours of discussing it with Yardrat scientists, and even their Feudal leader, they allowed him to take Cui's pod (Due to his still being repaired) after they implanted him with he knowledge of Instant Transmission, as a boon to help him destroy Frieza, Vegeta has since taken to the stars once more, heading for Planet Namek, not only to intercept Frieza's forces, but to discover just why Frieza is going there.

- Starting Power Level: 2,500
- Current Power-Level: 80,000
- Kaio-Ken: 120,000
- Max-Power State: 100,000
Personality: Krillin, without the monkey-boy to humble him, became quite arrogant in his abilities during his training under Master Roshi, being Roshi's sole student, he underwent a breed of training in order to become Roshi's direct successor as the Turtle Hermit, and due to this, he has become one of, if not the strongest Earthling alive. Krillin was however humbled when he fought in the finals of the World Martial arts tournament with Tien Shinhan, the wonder child of the Crane Hermit, and was thoroughly beaten.

Krillin's life is relatively unremarkable until his fourth birthday, on which he was shipped off to Orin Temple, it was here that Krillin received his signature six incense burns on his head, which he has kept shaved and marked as a sign of respect to his former Temple, despite his constant bullying at the site. After nine years of training at the Orin Temple, Krillin departed his home to seek out the legendary Turtle Hermit, Master Roshi; there he trained rigorously as the sole apprentice of the living legend, his new-found power making him arrogant, as a test, and partially an ego-breaker, Roshi sent Krillin to Korin's Tower in order to retrieve the sacred water. It took Krillin three days to climb the tower and reach the 800 year old cat known as Korin. He then challenged Korin to a fight for his Sacred Water, to witch Korin replied with a simple enough challenge; to catch him. After nearly a month of grueling training to catch the cat, not only had Krillin learned the Afterimage technique, but what once took him three days, now took him only an hour, a sign of not only his increasing stamina and speed, but his resolve.
After his training was complete, Krillin signed himself up for the World Martial Arts tournament, confident that he could prove himself to be the strongest Earthling alive. In the preliminary rounds, Krillin had no trouble, merely knocking his opponents out of the ring inside of a minute at most, the only one he took his time with was one of the former bullies of Orin Temple, whom he took pleasure in humiliating. It was in the semi-finals that Krillin had to verse the man known as Jackie Chun, who Krillin had some trouble with, taking nearly an entire ten minutes, after which both of the competitors were exhausted, and Chun revealed himself as the boy's master, Roshi. Krillin took this as a lie, not believing the old man could still be a match for him, after Roshi revealed himself fully, Krillin found himself humbled by the revelation, learning to never underestimate his opponents.
Roshi forfeited the match, allowing Krillin to advance to the finals after watching the other semi-final, a match between a man known as Yamcha and the triclopse known as Tien Shinhan. Before the tournament, Krillin had been introduced to Yamcha and his group, consisting of his master's former apprentice Gohan and a green haired teenage girl named Bulma. Krillin introduced himself kindly, and even joked about the possibility of seeing him in the finals, but sadly, the wonder child of the Crane Hermit had thoroughly defeated his new acquaintance. The finals came down to the two destined to be rivals; The prodigy of the Turtle Hermit against the prodigy of the Crane Hermit. The fight itself was rigorous, lasting nearly fifteen minutes before the three-eyed boy fired off his signature Solar Flare, blinding Krillin for a split second, in which Tien thoroughly kicked Krillin in the gut, sending him flying out of the ring. Tien had won the tournament, and Krillin found himself humiliated and ashamed, it was after this incident that Krillin began training thoroughly to challenge Tien, even developing his own version of the Solar Flare.
During the attack on Earth by King Piccolo, Krillin found himself being one of the Champions of Earth, fighting not only alongside his rival Tien, but his fellow student Yamcha; the battles that ensued bound a friendship between the three that Krillin had never known, and he now considers the latter two to be something of an extended family, almost like that of Roshi. Krillin never stopped training, similar to his friendly rival Tien, almost driving himself to defeat the man that had humiliated him in his debut in the world martial arts tournament. In order to assist him in this task, Roshi taught Krillin how to use his famed Maximum Power Technique, which Krillin mastered in a matter of months, and was even able to manipulate the ki output as to increase his muscle mass to optimal capacity for a power-up, yet not be slowed down by it. A few years later, the alien known as Raditz arrived on Earth, prompting the warriors of Earth to stand up for their planet once again, but they arrived too late, as the man known as Kakarot had already defeated the alien. The new Guardian of Earth informed them about the coming threat to their home-world, and ever since, Krillin has intensely trained as often as he could at Korin's tower, taking advantage of the benefits of the senzu beans for his training regiment.
