jason hartman is ravager, a vigilante operating in rail city, oftentimes referred to as an urban legend for his stealth tactics and vicious physical style. he grew up in the rail city orphanage. smaller than most of the other boys in the facility, jason had to defend himself from the bigger, stronger boys, and took up hand-to-hand combat, practicing precision strikes and learning the body’s natural pressure points. jason was eventually expelled from the orphanage by its owner and headmaster, who had grown tired of seeing jason send fellow residents to the orphanage’s infirmary. jason took up residence with two old friends of his, jordie darrien(who would later be known as melee) and damon jarrett(who would later be known as psionis), who had worked around several different laws to live together and away from parents, although they were both 17. this enabled jason to attend rail city high school. shortly after, jason took up practicing his combat with a bo staff, and, looking for opponents, took to fighting thugs in the street, gang members specifically. never truly being(knowingly) exposed to the criminal element before this, jason slowly grew more and more bitter and angry, seeing the kinds of things these men did for money and power, and started taking his late-night brawling more seriously, eventually gunning for specific crews and gaining the attention of several gang leaders. some of these leaders had set jason up and attempted to execute him, only to be stopped shortly before jason passed out from the severe beating he recieved. he woke up several hours later in a dark room, all of his wounds healed, with a large, imposing man standing across from him. the man told jason that people like him were in short supply, and proceeded to tell jason about metahumans, and how his generation is going to be the next generation of metahumans once their powers manifest. the last thing he told jason before releasing him was “everything is fit together precisely for a reason. i’m pulling strings behind the scenes to ensure that nothing gets out of hand”, after which he threw jason a dark blue bodysuit and let him go. the bodysuit was fireproof, insulated, able to withstand mass amounts of force and pressure, and allowed jason total freedom of movement. jason would add a hood and cape and facemask to this, and begin using it as a costume. it was at this point that jason took the name ravager, based on a character role from a video game he had been fond of. his first action under his “ravager” identity was wiping out the gangs he had previously taken on. ravager slowly dismantled several local street gangs, earning himself a reputation, and attracting police attention for vigilante activities. ravager set up a base of operations in an abandoned cathedral to keep his roommates from being wise to his actions, and began taking on his vigilante crusade almost full-time, learning free-running and parkour to navigate his way through rail city more efficiently, and began making use of stealth tactics, and skills such as picking locks and general sabotage. over the next few weeks, ravager would enlist the aid of young prodigy todd horton, AKA calico, to gather intelligence on various gangs and noteworthy people, meet metahuman natalie helsel, AKA spark, and his roommates, jordie and damon, would both have powers manifest, and would take on their own heroic identities, causing ravager to reveal himself to them. ==continued in “young blood”==ravager.PNG
