MERIDIAN



Celebrity Claim- Rachael Taylor



Full Name- Marlene Shepard
Nicknames/Aliases- Marlee (to most people), Fey (former codename as a New Mutant)
Age- 32
Date of Birth- December 25th, 1985
Faction- Supernatural (former New Mutant from April 2001 - July 2005)
Occupation- Adventurer, Novelist (soon)



Personality- Despite her mutant powers not having to do with cats, many have described Marlee as "catlike" as far as her personality goes... while others have used "mildly sociopathic". She's relatively laid back most of the time,aside from the occasional sass, but when she sets her mind on something she's incredibly direct about it and sometimes pursues goals to the point of obsession. She's generally all smiles and sass and fun, but can shift to cold seriousness or aggression without warning. She also has a tendency to be disproportionately vicious to those who wrong her or hurt others - she has no problem utterly ruining someone's life if she feels they deserve it, especially those who take lives.

Marlee is a fairly empathic person, though the jury is out on whether it's due to her being biologically in tune with the life force of the world around her. She feels for most people and genuinely likes to help those around her, and is more than willing to put herself in danger to do so. She cares, and when people she cares for are hurt, she takes it very personally. This also results, frequently, in extreme stress. Despite being a relatively strong-willed and assertive person, she is pretty bad at handling emotional stress since she is rarely willing to burden other people with her problems. As a result she tends to bottle things up, and can be prone to mood swings when overly stressed or put under pressure, something that has been substantially increased since her father's death. She is doing a good job faking keeping it together, but at this point Life is all starting to take its toll.
Thankfully her hair is already white.


Likes-
  • Cats
  • Antique firearms, particularly "Western" and Police revolvers
  • Martial arts movies
  • Braiding hair
  • Mint flavored foods / candies
Dislikes-
  • Bullies, and anyone similarly abusing authority or privilege
  • Hot weather
  • Spicy foods
  • Disrespecting legitimate authority or law, vigilanteism included
  • Pointless death or suffering
Strengths-
  • Extremely quick and analytic mind, making her good at puzzles and riddles and learning new things quickly, particularly languages
  • Empathic
  • Practical and resourceful
Flaws-
  • Bad at handling emotional stress in a healthy manner
  • Afraid of spiders, bees, and "bitey" insects in general
  • Allergic to several synthetic/chemical dyes such as those found in modern cosmetics and even processed foods, necessitating a picky lifestyle




Power Name- Life-Energy Channeling
Description- Marlee has a mutant power to tap into and channel the collective "life force" of the world around her through her own body - Chi, Qi, Ki, and many other esoteric energies with other names, it's all the same. Marlee herself calls it "The Flow", due to seeing it as something which "flows" through all living creatures using her life-sight. Marlee is a natural conduit for such life energy and normally is in permanently good health, allowing her to be almost supernaturally resistant to poison and disease (though not immune). She also has the power to channel this ambient life energy directly into things, which produces different effects depending on what she pushes the extra life energy into:

Normal Humans: In most circumstances, channeling extra life energy into a human being causes them to have heightened physical abilities such as strength and endurance, to a factor of about 150% of their normal. This effect lasts for about a minute after Marlee stops actively channeling life energy into them. This can also be used to increase a resting target's natural healing rate tenfold, allowing them to more easily and quickly recover from injuries with proper rest and care.
Mutants/Superhumans: In addition to the benefits granted to normal humans, Mutant powers with primarily physical components are also improved by an equivalent amount, such as superhuman strength or healing factors. This effect also applies to superhuman or supernatural powers that directly base off life energy of some kind, such as Iron Fist's chi manipulation. Purely mental powers such as pyrokinesis would be unaffected. Otherwise her power works the same on mutants as humans, including duration.
Animals: Animals receive the same physical benefits as humans, with one additional effect - animals currently being channeled by Marlee actively view her as an ally or kindred being, and unless provoked will aid Marlee as much as she can communicate with them. She cannot directly control them, but she can suggest things to them in a general sense, rarely more complex than "attack that thing" or "these are friends". Animals otherwise still follow their own natural instincts and cannot be forced to do things they wouldn't normally do.
Nonliving Objects: Channeling life energy into a nonliving object, such as a sword or a computer, allows Marlee to animate the object and effectively grant it an equivalent of life. Its life energy simulates the five senses to varying extents depending on the object, and it gains a limited form of sentience. Most objects animated this way are simple beings with only enough intelligence to attempt pantomimed communication and follow direct verbal orders from Marlee, though machines retain an awareness of all of their normal functions and under some circumstances can still control them. Computers and other modern digital devices have a tendency to "learn" if left animated for too long, depending on how complex and how much processing power they have, and can learn to disobey or reinterpret commands. Marlee can grant an object only between one and five days of life energy at a time (depending on the size of the object), after that it will simply "turn off" if she does not give it another dose, which takes several minutes. She can also pull the life energy back out of an object she has animated by simply touching it and willing it to.
Dead: A living being that has experienced true, genuine death, is completely unaffected to Marlee's powers. She cannot bring back the dead or even animate them. Even creatures that have died and somehow have their life force naturally restored in some sort of genuine resurrection remain cut off from her powers.
Undead/Constructs: If a creature is animate but does not possess a natural life force of its own, such as supernaturally or magically animated corpses, vampires, or constructs, channeling life energy into them is usually harmful. Channeling life energy into them will begin to destabilize the source of their unnatural life and "turn them off" within seconds, leaving nothing left but a slightly smoking dead body. This usually also fries the "wiring" of such creatures and prevents them from being reanimated again... though as with all things supernatural, there's no such thing as impossible. This is the only use of her power that doesn't disrupt the environment, as the moment the creature is destroyed the used life energy will return to the surrounding world.

Finally, though she has never actually done it before, Marlee has the power to drain life force from an individual living creature and return it to the ambient life force of the area around her. This requires intense concentration and about 10 seconds of unbroken physical contact with the target, meaning it is essentially impossible to do in active combat with most enemies. The power is mercifully painless to the target, but the strain of this deadly power will cause Marlee partial paralysis and extreme fatigue for a few minutes afterwards. Marlee is aware that this is something she can probably do, but given her general empathy and value of life, she is not likely to ever be willing to outright murder anything in this way outside of the most severe circumstances.

Limits- Marlee's power is entirely based on where she currently is, as it taps into the collective life energy of the surrounding world. The 150% boost listed above is the standard for most locations in the continental United States, given the population and generally good environment. In a desolate desert or arctic wasteland, or any other place where there is little plant or animal life, she's more or less powerless. In a dense rainforest where every square inch is full of life, she could instead push that 150% up to as much as 200%.

While Marlee gets the benefit of the life-energy boost while she is channeling life energy into a target, channeling it requires nearly all of her focus and attention. As a result, while she would gain the improved physical abilities and healing rate, she cannot do much else besides talking while doing it, including defending herself. While targets retain the benefits of an augmented life force for the above durations after she stops channeling them, Marlee loses all benefits the INSTANT she stops actively using her power, as she is merely a conduit.

Because of her genetic, passive link to the life energies around her, she is incredibly vulnerable to other effects that involve the same energies. There is little she can do to stop these effects being used against her as she cannot close off her connection to the collective life force around her. This also means that sudden shifts in the life force (such as by sudden, large amounts of death) can cause her pain or even put her into shock due to a sort of empathic feedback.
While she believes her allergy to synthetic dyes is a product of her mutation's connection to the natural world, it's simply a normal human allergy.

Finally, life energy is a finite resource. The more Marlee uses her powers in a given area in a short time, the weaker that area's life force will be. Living things will be less healthy, plants will wither quicker, food will spoil faster, and so on. She is aware of this fact from her studies and experiences, and makes sure never to overstress the environment. As a result she is rarely willing to channel life energy more than once a day in any one location as that is her best estimate of how much won't cause any adverse effects to the surrounding world.

Power Name- Life-Sight
Description- Marlee can switch her vision to instead see into a spectrum of life energy rather than the normal visual spectrum. While using this form of vision, all living things will be viewed as glowing green while nonliving and dead things are a black void. The more life energy something has, the brighter green it is. Most forms of unnatural life, such as that of supernaturally animated dead, instead appear as a deep red. Living things that have died and been somehow resurrected to true life will appear a visibly different shade of green, though Marlee has never actually encountered this.

Limits- Nonliving things are completely invisible to her while using life-sight, and she cannot really discern details of individual sources of life energy beyond their general shape. For example, most humans would essentially look the same. She couldn't accurately pick a single person out of a crowd of people, and if she looked at a forest she would just see a giant featureless mass of flowy green.
Life-sight is also blocked by a foot of most any nonliving matter, such as a thick concrete wall.


Skills & Abilities-
- Between training as a New Mutant, a couple years as a police officer, and now years of traveling and studying the ways of various martial arts, Marlee is extremely skilled in combat by human standards (as her powers give her no combat benefits except against magical animates). She is best in hand to hand combat but also very good with handguns, particularly revolvers.
- Marlee has a natural talent for learning languages through reading and firsthand conversation, and finds it to be a puzzle that is fun to solve. She can typically be dropped into any modern society with little more than one of those cheap translator guides and pick up enough of the language to function effectively within a day or two, though it'll always be clear she's a tourist. Due to her travels she is currently is functional enough with Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, and has smatterings of several other languages typically spoken in various parts of southeast Asia.
- Marlee is a skilled practitioner of acupressure, which she often uses in conjunction with her power to amplify its effects and also hide her being-a-mutant, given there is no visual effect to her powers.




Height- 5'8"
Weight- 135lbs
Eye Colour- Green (slightly outside normal human color ranges)
Hair Colour- White-Gray

Appearance- White hair, bright green eyes... Marlee stands out a little. Her white hair and vibrant green eyes are a cosmetic mutation, and it shows. Despite this, she has always vehemently insisted that she just grayed early and adamantly refuses any further comments on the topic. She usually keeps her hair in a ponytail or braid at about mid-back length due to liking her hair long, and often wears a hat or sunglasses to conceal her eyes.

Given her father was former military and her mother was sort of a shut-in, Marlee was raised wearing utilitarian clothes rather than typical womens' fashion. She feels uncomfortable wearing dresses, skirts, heels, and the like due to simply never really growing up wearing them... and if forced to do so it will show. She often just outright wears men's clothes when possible due to the relative flimsiness of most modern women's clothing and her active life. You can most often find her in some variation of sweaters, jackets, sweatpants, or jeans, alongside the occasional region-appropriate clothing on her travels.

Gear-
- Marlee has kept a 2013 PDA "awakened" by her powers since getting it. She calls it "Psion", after its manufacturer, often shortened to "Psi". At this point it essentially functions as a rudimentary AI that she often uses to dictate notes to, as its limited memory and processing power limits it from becoming much more complex than modern day smartphones.
- Typically carries a handgun on her person at any time, usually a snubnosed revolver of some kind for easy concealment. She owns a few different ones.


Additional Information-
- Anyone who was at Xavier's around Christmas 2001 is welcome to reference (and joke about) the one time she dyed her hair black and had a SEVERE allergic reaction because of it, which ended with her having to shave her hair off to prevent further harm. Despite that she very nearly died from it, she has since laughed it off.



Hometown- NYC, NY
Immediate Family-
Jack Shepard - Former Army sergeant, later respected NYPD officer, and eventually the Chief of the NYPD from the mid 90's through most of the 00's. He retired in 2012 and died of natural causes in March 2017.
Marlene Shepard - A loving mother and longtime writer of cop drama and spy novels, and the occasional children's book. Somewhat of a shut-in. Lives in Queens.
Others-
- Barry Cavanaugh (friend) - Former partner on the NYPD when she was on the force, and the only other person but Marlee's father to know she was a mutant (he's a normal human himself). He was forcefully retired two years ago due to an electrokinetic mutant he was apprehending permanently causing minor nerve damage from a powerful shock. He has since been traveling with Marlee more or less as her cameraman due to hitting a similar "don't know what to do with my life now" paradox as she did years before.

History-
Marlee had a pretty typical life, all things considered. Her father was a dedicated cop, her mother was a writer, and there were never any major issues. Marlee planned to grow up to be a cop like her father, and despite the dangerous line of work, they were a happy family. Her powers rapidly got in the way of her life once they manifested in her early teens, unfortunately, as she begin to "tune in" to the natural world and lose track of herself in the process. Her parents believed her to be suffering from periodic bouts of catatonia, never quite putting together the abundance of animals that began to congregate around their house at all hours of the day.

Thankfully, after little intervention from the Professor, she soon found herself transferred to a new school - Xavier's, as one of the first new students after the First Class and the Magneto incident. While she was happy at the school and never avoided New Mutants training, the activities of the X-Men left a bad taste in her mouth for reasons she had a hard time putting into words at that age. While she did see the X-Men as "the good guys" and dearly liked many of her classmates, Marlee's strict upbringing in a military / police household made her still see them as "vigilantes" and not just "heroes". It was NEVER a point of hostility towards them and she trained with them for years after without complaint, but when she graduated from high school she made it very clear that she never wanted to be an X-Man herself. She remained at the school for a year or so afterwards, however, as she still didn't know what to do with her life.

Eventually she followed in her father's footsteps and enrolled in the police academy. While she had the drive and skill to excel, her career never went far. From the moment she joined the force she was always held to higher standards than other officers around her, primarily due to her own choice - she'd made it clear from day 1 that she never wanted special treatment due to her father being the Chief at that point. She never got promoted out of her role as a beat cop as a result, and by 2008 she was utterly frustrated and burnt out with it all, especially the police's poor handling of things when it came to Mutant Town.

She quit before she really had any idea of what to do next, but eventually came to the conclusion that she didn't know where in the world she belonged. She decided to learn more about her own powers, she began traveling the world to study the beliefs other cultures around the world have towards "life energies". Her travels have taken her so far to several parts of Asia, speaking with all sorts of martial artists, monks, gurus, and other practitioners of esoteric energies, learning what she can and comparing it to her own knowledge... and along the way having all sorts of adventures and misadventures. She's currently writing a book on the topic, but her worry about accidentally outing herself as a mutant in the process has always kept it from going anywhere.

As of this year, now accompanied by an old friend named Barry, she had begun to look into legends of the fabled land of K'un Lun while staying with a Kung Fu school in Hong Kong that supposedly knew about it. Before she could discover any concrete evidence of the place, however, she received word from the States that her father had passed away. She has returned home to New York to help with the funeral and, perhaps, give the book an honest try. And maybe say hello to anyone still at the school who remembers her.
But given her luck she's sure Adventure will follow her home too. It always does.

Other Characters- Noivern, Abra, Legion, Spider-man, Honeybear

Role Play Sample-
No matter how many times the strange and occult happened around Marlee, she could never shake the thought that she'd imagined "travel the world and study esoteric energies" to be more "meditate with gurus" and less "fighting weird supernatural things". It made the mundane threats seem so... mundane.

Such as the one she found herself in. Just sitting back, enjoying a nice bowl of soup at a street shop by the water in Kowloon City, talking about philosophy with a man she'd just met there, when a trio of thugs approached them. "<Chao, we told you, you aren't welcome in this part of town.>" The leader of the thugs growled in a thick Cantonese drawl.

"Friends of yours?" Marlee asked, knowing the man she'd been talking to was their target. 'Chao', as he'd introduced himself, a teacher at a local martial arts school just starting up. He'd been having issues with one of the other local schools that had been in the area longer... case in point, it seemed.

"Remember when I said that Berjin guy doesn't like competing ideals?" Chao replied, before jerking a hand back over his shoulder at the thugs. "This is the second time this week. I've already gotten the blessing of the other local schools, but this guy's rather insistent." Neither Marlee nor Chao seemed too bothered by the thugs being there. The cook on the other side of the counter, however, was sloooooowly ducking under the counter.

And in the reflection on the glass, Marlee could see the glint of one of them pulling a knife. That was what changed her mind - she wouldn't have jumped into a fight over turf, but these thugs meant to kill. That, that she couldn't allow. "Think these ones are going to insist as well. You need a hand?" She asked, setting her bowl down and giving a sigh.

"No, but I won't refuse it either."
The lead thug rushed Chao first, only for the man to twirl in his seat and let the stab sail past him. He brought his elbow down hard on the man's hand to disarm him of his knife the hard way, before turning and chucking his soup right into the face of Kung Fu Jackass #2. He didn't take it very well, falling to the ground and clutching his face in pain.

Marlee decided to handle #3 for him. She didn't like getting into these pointless fights, but this man seemed to know of the fabled land of K'un Lun. Perhaps she could impress him enough to be willing to let on a few hints. As the third thug rushed in, Marlee scooted off her stool and picked it up in one fluid motion, before cracking it upside Kung Fu Jackass #3's head. He took the blow and moved back, but she followed suit. The two briefly exchanged a flurry of punches and parries, but the already-dazed thug soon ended up taking a knee below the belt. Marlee stepped in with a decisive hip-toss, launching him into a nearby garbage can.

The other two, however, had fared decidedly worse against Chao. One of them was still enjoying first-degree burns to his eyes, while the other had added an arm and several ribs to his list of broken bones.

The calm lasted only a moment more, however, before she heard the telltale beep of an email on her phone. After reading the words her mother had sent, however... her expression changed. It took all that she had to not let on the kick in the gut she'd just taken. "Jóutáu" Was all she said, and after placing a few bills on the counter to pay for her food, she headed off into the city to meet back up with Barry.
She had a flight to book for home.

So Ash is planning on taking a road trip back up to Buffalo NY for the St. Pats weekend next RO, among other things to visit his father's grave since he never really got the chance to say goodbye.
But he's also got a giant truck and believes vigorously in the concept of "the more the merrier", and would love to drag a couple others along for the ride. Because everyone loves day long road trips.

Anyone up for a fun little thread that will almost certainly end with a bunch of teenagers getting into shenanigans? Looking for at most three or four others who, preferably, get along with the big goofball. Cause, you know, road trip.
Not just open to NM's, by the way. Notion is totes invited.

For reference...

So between Iron Fist making a joke about "Spiderfriends" and me apparently having forgotten that old animated series actually had Firestar and Iceman in it... you three wanna do a really silly thread of the four of them fighting some really cheeseball villain next RO?

After the Symbiote arc for Spidey, and a few nightmares for the XMen, I feel like this site could use some good old "A SUPERVILLAIN COMES UP WITH A NEFARIOUS PLAN TO ROB A BANK!" kinda shenanigans to lighten things up.
Because comics are silly.
Whatchoo guys think? Open to suggestions on villains too, otherwise I'd just troll the Marvel wikis for some golden age type shenanigans.

HONEYBEAR



Celebrity Claim- Paul Wight II ("The Giant" / "The Big Show")



Full Name- Ashton Barre
Nicknames/Aliases- Ash, Bigfoot, Big Barre, Big Bear
Age- 36
Date of Birth- Jan 22nd, 1980
Faction- Brotherhood
Occupation- Co-owner/ Cook / Bartender at the Golden Wings sports bar in Hell's Kitchen



Personality-
There are two sides to Ash, the face he puts on for everyone and the real guy beneath. To most, Ash is a big, jovial kinda guy, the guy making manly comments and being no stranger to liberal use of the word "bro". He's as likely to hug as handshake, and he tries to do his best to liven up the world around him. He also tends to adopt a very "protector" sort of nature towards those he cares about, doting over people like a big giant papa bear, and being overly vicious to those who threaten them. He's just as likely to get physical in a tense situation as well, and has a fairly short temper.

Beneath the smiles and machismo, Ash is severely depressed. Until he signed on with the Brotherhood, Ash was in a years-long downward spiral of alcoholism and self-loathing following the backlash from publicly being outed as a mutant. He has lost all real interest in his own life or well-being, and has no idea what to do with himself. He has no problem putting himself against impossible odds because he has no problem dying, something many of the Brotherhood might be aware of by now.

Likes-
  • Pro wrestling
  • High quality beer and liquors
  • Spicy food
  • Machismo
  • Sleeping
Dislikes-
  • Poor sportsmanship
  • Cheap beer
  • Bigots
  • Being outdone or one-upped
  • Boredom
Strengths-
  • Peak-human physical strength. Previously held world powerlifting records before they were stripped due to public outing as a mutant.
  • Phenomenal endurance due to years of pro wrestling experience.
  • Very quick-witted in conversation, and good at playing to a crowd or playing a part. Often catches people off guard given his size, as many would expect him to be dumb. Fits the role of a bartender extremely well.
Flaws-
  • Ash is naturally blunt to the point of insensitivity. He can show tact when needed, but it's just an act.
  • Ash is not "book smart", having only a high school education and not a good one at that. Outside of his specialties of cooking, alcohol, and fighting, he's pretty dull.
  • Ash has an incredibly short temper and has no problem resorting to violence to solve problems.




Power Name- Matter / Vitality Conversion
Description- Ash has the power to convert inanimate matter into energy, specifically a strange form of "liquid healing energy" that does not exist within the laws of existing science. He can do so by touching the target object with his hands, which visibly "melts" the object into a brightly-glowing bluish substance with a similar consistency to petroleum jelly or toothpaste. The substance can then be applied to any wound or directly to the skin of a wounded organic individual where it will immediately absorb into the body and heal an equivalent amount of damaged tissue in a matter of seconds. The substance also has an antibacterial immune-boosting component to it, which can clean wounds of potential infectants when directly applied, and help safely metabolize most organic toxins to reverse damage from poison.

Ash is the only one who can manipulate the substance, as it becomes inert if it ever leaves contact with his body, and it absorbs into any other living tissue it comes in contact with. He cannot heal himself with this energy (as it does not absorb into his body normally). He can, however, use the goo to cover over any open wounds he might have - while this won't heal the wound, it will serve as a sterile liquid bandage and styptic until he can receive actual medical attention. In addition, he can eat and digest the goo which, while basically flavorless, retains most nutritional value of whatever it was converted from.

Limits- As mentioned, Ash cannot heal himself using this power. While he can hear organic poisons, he cannot heal synthetic chemical poisons or most forms of disease, however he can heal certain symptoms if they are some form of direct physical damage - for example, he could heal a skin rash or regrow dead tissue from gangrene or frostbite. Finally, while he can even heal most brain damage and theoretically save someone from brain death, the victim will mostly likely still have some form of memory loss or other side effects. Once a target has begun full clinical cell death, the body will not absorb the healing goo anymore and cannot be further healed - he can't bring back the truly dead.
The increase in muscle mass is also limited, as anything more than adding half-again to his muscle mass will start causing irreparable damage to his body from straining its physical limits.

Organic matter converts into energy quickly and easily, but inorganic matter is much less efficient, about 1/3rd efficiency in both time and the amount created. The mass of an apple would create an equivalent amount of healing energy (which would be enough to heal any surface injury), while it would take a cinderblock or large brick to create the same amount and could take over 30 seconds to fully convert. He also cannot convert any organic or inorganic matter still connected to a living body, for reasons Ash himself doesn't understand. He could melt steel, but not if it was a cybernetic arm attached to a person. This power can be used to melt any known nonliving material with the exception of Marvel Metals - such as Adamantium, Vibranium, or Felix Metal.

Attempting to regrow major sections of a body, such as fully severed limbs, is impossible for him to on his own without killing the patient. The subject would need to be heavily sedated and hooked up to an active blood transfusion, as the process is excruciatingly painful and dangerous due to it regrowing nerve endings and blood vessels from the point of injury on out. Attempting to heal someone with an amputated leg without such medical care would result in them bleeding out before the process completed, or suffering a stroke or seizure from the sudden violent nerve input and excessive pain.

Power Name- Perfect Metabolism
Description- Ash's stomach and metabolism are enhanced far beyond that of a human. He can go nearly a full month without water and up to three months without food. His stomach acid is replaced with an unknown form of bacterial acid that works similarly to his matter-conversion power, capable of breaking down any substance it can - basically anything but the Marvel Metals such as Adamantium, Vibranium, or Felix Metal. This causes all of the nutritional value of the food or drink to be fully digestible, while removing most contaminants that would be harmful to his body.

He also has a greatly enhanced immune system, making him extremely resistant to poison and disease. Poisons normally lethal to humans at most make him temporarily sickened or nauseous.

Limits- While he can digest anything, he still has to be able to physically eat it, and he has an otherwise normal human mouth, throat, and sense of taste. He can't chew bricks or metal, and swallowing sharp chunks of metal would shred his throat. Likewise, while his body is protected from his own unique stomach acid, any other form of acid would burn him as much as any other human.

This power is a highly enhanced metabolism and immune system, not magical immunities or a healing factor. Extremely high doses of poison can overload him, and it is entirely possible for someone to create cocktails of poisons or diseases tailored to his physiology that could affect him normally. The additional downside, one Ash finds most disappointing, is that he is nearly immune to the effects of alcohol without chugging massive amounts of it - not to the hilarious extent of people with full healing factors, however.

Skills & Abilities- Ash is proficient in traditional amateur and competitive wrestling styles, as well as the more showy professional wrestling styles. He also has a black belt in traditional Judo on top of that. He also has passing experience with Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Russian sambo, and even sumo wrestling, though these are more "tried it once, didn't stick with it" hobbies than serious training.
Between his sheer size and strength alongside this training, he is a very dangerous hand-to-hand combatant. His specialty with grappling and holds can give him enough time to use his powers to disable an enemy's weapons or armor.




Height- 6'10"
Weight- ~400lbs
Eye Colour- Hazel
Hair Colour- Brown

Appearance- Ash is a big man who can best be described as "scruffy". He shaves once a week at best, doesn't shower quite as much as he should, and tends to dress based on whatever was the first thing he found getting out of bed - usually "jeans and a tshirt" to varying degrees. Any jacket or bulky clothing he wears only makes him that much more broad at a glance. He also has slight stretch marks over most major muscle areas such as biceps and calves, due to the more frequent use of the muscle-boosting effects of his powers since working with the Brotherhood.

He has little regard for his personal appearance outside work, leading to most casual observers seeing him as an intimidating monster of a man. He also has no problem using this to his advantage - he's quick to loom over people if he doesn't like them, and is more than happy to let other members of the Brotherhood use him for the "big muscly guy" threat factor.

Gear- When on missions for the Brotherhood, Ash usually wears a kevlar vest provided by the Brotherhood (likely of questionable legality), and a reinforced biker helmet made with a few minor enhancements by Toad - night vision, hands-free communication, and other basic utility features. The painting on the helmet makes it visually resemble a blue bear.
He also carries a Remington 870 shotgun on missions, one normally found under the bar counter at the Golden Wings... however he mostly uses it for intimidation factor as he has no real shooting experience to make full use of it. In combat he primarily relies on improvised melee weapons and his hand-to-hand skill.

Additional Information-
- Ash is left-handed.
- He has a hobby of making his own moonshine, and has recently branched off into making homemade mead, both of which occasionally are served at his bar as specialties.
- Brotherhood members also usually eat free at the Golden Wings, and any of them in need of side money or legal cover stories can find work there as bouncers or whatever else is needed.



Hometown- Buffalo, NY
Immediate Family- none

Others-
Tanya Davidson (Ex-wife, 29) - A fitness and medical adviser working with the WWE at the time Ash was working with the company, the two hit it off and married while on tour in Europe. She was later responsible for outing him as a mutant and divorced him right after, and they are now very estranged.
Maxwell Greenburg (Stepbrother, 30) - Ash's partner in crime if there ever was one, Max has been a supportive brother throughout Ash's adult life, and is quite happy being an Uncle. He's incredibly smart and terrifyingly good with numbers, and frequently jokes that he would have made a great accountant for a crime lord. Now co-owns the Golden Wings of Hell's Kitchen, here meaning "Max does everything involving money while Ash handles cooking and bartending". Max is aware of Ash's Brotherhood activities and despite being human himself, fully supports them.
Nadine Greenburg (Stepmother, 55) - Richard's second wife after the car accident took him out of his main line of work. Owns the original Golden Wings Sports Bar in Buffalo, a local icon. Returned to her maiden name after her husband's death.
Richard Barre (Father, Deceased) - A former carnie strongman and lesser-known professional wrestler in the 70s and 80s under the name Rick "Iron" Barre. Taken out of that line of work by a car accident that also killed his wife in 1985, he retired with a small fortune that he used to fund his second wife's sports bar venture. He died at the ripe age of 72 a few years ago, due to old age magnifying a lifetime of injuries.
Ashley Barre (Birth mother, Deceased) - Ash's birth mother, someone who never really factored into his life much, though he knows he was named after her. She died when Ash was a kid in an unfortunate car accident.

History- Born to a carnie strongman turned WWF pro wrestler Richard Barre and his wife Ashley, Ashton's life started adjacent to the wrestling ring and never went far from it. His parents took a year off from their job when he was young, but right after that the young Ash was on tour with the couple and even briefly the focus of his father's last gimmick, where he was briefly rebranded as a wildman sort of character named "Big Bear" and the young Ash as "Bear Cub".

When Ash was 5, he and his parents were involved in a car accident that killed his mother and hit his father with enough injuries to his legs to end his career, while Ash thankfully just got away mostly uninjured. His father remarried within the year after retiring from the company and returning to his old hometown of Buffalo, NY, marrying an old flame and helping her start a well-known sports bar in the city called Golden Wings. Ash grew up in an apartment above the restaurant and spent most of his teenage years planning to succeed his father in a wrestling career, aided by his stepbrother also sharing his drive. And Ash definitely inherited his father's size and strength, as well as wrestling skill, dominating the amateur wrestling scene through high school and becoming a hot commodity on the indie scene both in America and Japan. Eventually, he scored a solid professional contract with the WWE when he was only 21 - being a giant sold like mad in the early 2000s wrestling scene, after all.

After an initially silly gimmick where he was supposed to literally be Bigfoot, he won over fans and the company alike by just being damn good at selling his role. He was eventually rebranded as a legacy wrestler named Big Barre, and later renamed to Big Bear, both in honor of his father. He had a long and successful career in the ring throughout the early 2000s, earning multiple midcard and world titles over the years, and generally enjoyed a status as a big goofy babyface. His stepbrother Max rode his coattails into an onscreen Manager role for much of that time. During that time he also was involved with one of the fitness managers for the company, and they married late in 2006.

The marriage was strained at best during their travel schedule with the company, and in 2007 he took a break from wrestling to just be a family man for a bit when his contract expired. During this time he also began to train for and enter into the 2008 Summer Olympics in weightlifting, where he won gold in both events, setting world records due to his astounding strength and size (226 kg for snatch, 272 kg for clean and jerk). His wife had the idea to ride potential success in these events into a higher-paying contract, and it paid off in spades, walking back into the company in 2009 with a new multi-million-dollar contract.

2009 was a good year for him, but it ended in utter tragedy. His father passed away early in the year, and during a Pay-Per-View event he accidentally botched a finisher and broke a fellow wrestler's neck. It was bad, ending the man's wrestling career instantly and paralyzing him from the waist down. Feeling horribly responsible, Ash snuck into the hospital and attempted to heal him, but was discovered in the process of doing so when the medical equipment the man was hooked up to registered the irregularities of the healing process and alerted the other medics on staff. Due to the potential public backlash over one of the company's biggest talents being known as a mutant, however, the company buried the story and chalked it up to a medical miracle.

Unfortunately, Ash also came out to his wife during this time that he was gay and while he was happy about being married to her, he wasn't really attracted to her. She was angry about this deception, and for what Ash assumes was retaliation about this fact, his wife leaked the whole "mutant" incident to the media. He was very publicly revealed as a mutant in late 2009. This destroyed his career within a month, as the Olympic commission stripped him of his medals and record status, since there was no way to determine if he had a mutant power that contributed to his victory. Following this debacle he was quietly released from the company to avoid further bad PR, and ended the year in a bitter divorce to top it all off.

His step-family rushed to his rescue, however, and his stepbrother helped him start up a new branch of the family business in NYC using his amassed wrestling wealth. Ash didn't weather it all very well, and began to hide his pain behind a series of bottles. Few were even really aware of just how much he'd become bitter to the world over this, as only he knew that he'd won those medals legitimately, and all of his athletic achievements in life had been honest.

There was a ray of hope in late 2014, at one of Ash's darkest times. He stopped a vicious assault and attempted hate-motivated murder of a mutant outside his bar, killing one of the attackers in the process of defending the mutant and avoiding legal action under the ruling of acting in the man's defense. He briefly got a bit of local fame as a hero for mutants, and some time later was contacted by members of the Brotherhood to see if he was interested in doing more for the cause since he was a known mutant. The hard sell worked, and after donning a helmet made by Toad to hide his identity he began work as an on-call soldier and medic for the Brotherhood, with the Golden Wings of Hell's Kitchen becoming an in-the-city safehouse for them. The restaurant itself is well known for being mutant-friendly in the city, as well as having the most brutal hot wings in town.

Role Play Sample-
"Gimme another Jack...n'leave the bottle this time." Shouted one of the bar patrons as the Golden Wings closed in on its 4am closing time. Ash was having a good night behind the bar, or at least as good of one as he could have with his outlook on the world. One look at the man was all Ash needed to see, however... the man had been there for damn near six hours, shouting his way through a Boxing PPV at anyone trying to change the channel, and the two idiots he'd brought with him had been even worse - mostly because they were just as rude, and only half as drunk to justify it.

"Sorry bruh, I'm cutting you off. Closing time, guys. Phone's by the bathrooms, cab company's on Speed Dial 1 if you need it." Ash said offhand, returning to cleaning glasses. The man mumbled something about "stupid bigass mutie freak", but Ash was working. He wasn't going to deck a drunk customer over the kind of insults he heard every day, at least not when he was on the job. When it was finally clear that Ash had actually meant it when he said he was cut off for the night, however, the man stumbled his way out along with his two wingmen.

The seven-foot bartender barely even noticed them leave. Quite frankly, he didn't care. If he actually gave two shits about the rantings of drunk patrons, he would be swimming in shit by now. Some sounds, however, still caught his attention. Like a crashing sound out by the back door. With nobody else around, Ash grumpily walked out from behind the bar and stormed back there... just in time to see Drunk Dumbass and his two wingmen beating the everloving hell out of a guy on the ground, shouting a colorful array of mutant slurs. Ash would have just yelled at them, but then Drunk Dumbass pulled out a knife.

"Hey!" Ash threw off his apron and stormed over... only for Drunk Dumbass to shout "One mutie freak's as good as any other!" and come at him with the knife. The seven-foot mutant could have held back, he had the training to disarm him safely... but this guy had pissed him off. One giant hand caught the man by his knife-hand, the other around his neck, before Ash turned and slammed him into the brick wall of the building. There was a sickening wet thud of his skull and neck cracking, and he just went limp as Ash dropped him.

His two wingmen wisely chose to book it, and Ash wasn't about to give chase. He took one look at the downed mutant, a man with very visible catlike features, and gave a quiet grunt. "Stay put." The large mutant instead walked back inside and grabbed a handful of a half-eaten order of onion rings that had been left on a table near the door, and began converting it into blue healing energy. He pressed it against the downed man's chest, the strange energy-goop quickly healing his cuts and bruises, to the man's surprise. "Now do me a favor and wait for the cops to get here, would'ja? I need someone to let them know Drunk Dumbass here committing suicide-by-bartender was 'self-defense'..." Ash muttered, all the while figuring he was going to need to put up a "We Serve Mutants - Deal With It!" sign out front to stop this kind of thing from happening anymore.
