I’m back, with a superhero character for once!

Codename: Hoverhands

Real Name: Raymond Manalastas

Age: 32



What little can be seen of the man under his cybernetic enchancements tells you this:

Raymond Manalastas is a man of Filipino descent in his early 30s. He is pale, thin and as cleanly shaven as a man with hovering robotic mitts can be.

His cybernetic enchancements seem like a hack job, with some mismatching parts. Most of his body is covered in a glossy epidermis, and the upper half of his head is dominated by a pair of large, cybernetic eyes, moving independently from each other.

What is especially distinctive about him, however, are his arms, or lack thereof. They have been replaced  with shoulder-mounted control pods and a pair of fairly large floating robotic gauntlets. He can send them to grab, pull and punch, as well as use them to swing himself around Starlight City.



Raymond was an investigative journalist looking for a scoop at the Mentonaut Halfway House for Wayward Superhumans. Were they harboring fugitives? Were they a danger to society? Could their personal tragedies be turned into a sensationalist, money-making article?

Unfortunately for him, his persistent and personal inquiries pushed a certain resident’s buttons too much, causing an outburst that took the help of three other residents and the obliteration of most Raymond’s upper body to end.

A mad genius spending time at the House rebuilt Raymond using whatever materials she had available at the time. The end result was… grotesque, but impressively functional. He tried to return to normal life, but found it impossible. He is back at the House now, as a resident.

Raymond is a skilled journalist, but has been held back by a number of personal flaws. He is often impatient and insensitive, and has had trouble dealing with authority. Strangely enough, nearly getting annihilated might have been the best thing to happen to him. It has given him time and reason to deal with his other issues.


I will be playing this character in a tabletop superhero game!
