    Some time ago, there was a CDC for a team of villains, with one member named Wildfire. I started an entry, but never finished it, so I figured now would be a good time to finish.

    The Persian fire demon Baugauven ( also referenced in Final Fantasy Dimensions) has lived for years in his human form, Bob Gauven. He had grown tired of tormenting the world with his whips of flame until he saw a news report about Seth and his team of villains. Seth’s penchant for chaos brought a smile to Bob’s face, and those ancient urges for destruction returned. He presented himself to Seth and offered up his services. Seth kept mispronouncing his name, so he chose “Wildfire” as the name the world would learn to fear.

    Origin: An Illegal immigrant From Mexico he was once a rising student in the field of biological chemistry, until an accident got him kicked out. He then was offered a job as the mascot for his father’s salsa business, but he it was found out that his father’s business was actually a cover for his gang, he confronted him, but His father anticipated this and burned down his main factory with many of his workers and Marcus inside. Marcus managed to escape, but was blamed for the fire. Marcus was forced to runaway and meet with the Biker gang known as the Grimms who helped him cross the border to America and get to an Illegal Sanctuary in Boston. There he got a job in a factory but an accident got him fired and when people of the Sanctuary began to go missing he was asked to put on his costume and become a hero. Now as the Jalapeño Man he protects the people of the Illegal Sanctuary and of Boston from all kinds of weirdness, but is there more to his story?

    My entry doesn’t have a backstory and all that so I’ll just call it “NinJill”. She is a cybernetically enhanced assassin from a future Tokyo.

  9. NerdAndProud says:

    My character doesn’t have a bio exactly, because the cops haven’t found out much about her.
    Codename: Laser
    Real Name: Unknown
    Age: Unknown
    Ethnicity: Unknown
    Sex: Female
    Powers and Abilities: Can manipulate light and heat intensity by means of emitting red lasers from her body. She primarily creates them with her hands, but has been witnessed giving off power from her entire body. Laser is known to use her powers to create explosions, distractions, and large amounts of property damage. She should be considered highly dangerous, as her beams can and will burn flesh and other substances. Her voice has never been heard by her opponents, so hardly any information regarding her identity is known, added to the fact that her costume conceals her entire body.

    Ice is an amoral advocate. She revels in being the contrarian for no purpose other than to obstruct and argue. Yes, she is the “slippery slope.”
