Notes: This character is based on the ‘real life superhero’ that used to patrol my town. Sadly, he stopped operating and moved away, retiring the character to the best of my knowledge – I know him indirectly through mutual friends. I’ve taken some liberties with the character; real names are not used, he didn’t use a spear, etc, and his in universe ‘origin story’ is original.
Alias: The Dark Spartan
Legal Name: Daniel Forester
Occupation: Accountant; Office worker; Vigilante; Hero
Height: 5′ 11′
Body Type: Fit, Toned
Hair Colour: Dark Blonde
Hair Type: Grown-out, Wavy
Eye Colour: Green
Skin Colour: White/Light Tan
Powers and Abilities
Powers: Almost indestructible shield and spear, near superhuman willpower.
Details/Limitations: Shield and spear are made of a rare and nearly unbreakable metal alloy which can only be destroyed by heat equal to the surface of a star, or by certain equally rare chemical agents/acids. Alongside almost peak physical conditioning, he possesses near superhuman, iron willpower; this gives him an unusually high tolerance for pain and the ability to resist basic psychic attacks, as well as the drive and determination to battle super-powered adversaries.
Abilities/Skills: Accounting/finance/business, Karate, Krav Maga, spear fighting.
Costume: Impact absorbing full-body armour, helmet, gauntlets, and boots over a fireproof/stab proof mesh bodysuit.
Weapons: 6ft metal spear
Gadgets/Tech: Near indestructible shield (can also be used as a weapon); communications gear including multi-band radio and police scanner contained in helmet; hidden compartments in the shaft of the spear contain various tools, such as a flashlight, cable ties/handcuffs, basic medical supplies, a fire blanket, and a length of thin, tough rope.
Physical Weaknesses: Relatively vulnerable without body armour and shield.
Mental/Emotional Weaknesses: Vulnerable to mid-high level psychic attack.
Personality and Relationships
Primary Traits: Indomitable, determined, confident, persistent, honest.
Likes: Movies, reading, comic books, video games, justice.
Dislikes: Corrupt officials, violence, dishonesty, celery.
Habits/Quirks: Stoic and brave, his preferred method of crime-fighting is old school street patrol, wherever the authorities are slow to react or turn a blind eye. His fierce determination and goal-driven mentality can come across as arrogance to strangers, and he can be a sore loser at times, though his heart is firmly in the right place. Even when losing, he’s known to keep getting back up no matter the odds. Doesn’t always agree or get on with other superheroes, but his actions as a vigilante hero have secured their respect many times times over.
Fears: Losing his fiancé, failing as a crime-fighter.
Family: Mother and Father – Retired.
Romantic Interests: Emma Ellis (Fiancé).
