Character Challenge 102: Speedster

Rapide is the speedster of my meta-verse. He is one of my earliest characters that I created for GURPS: Supers. His costume is supposed to resemble an ambulance. I didn’t have time go all crazy and design a scene. Instead, a bit of zypping practice. His personal best is 88 miles per hour (see what I did there?).



Henri Marchand worked as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) in Montréal, PQ, Canada until his hyper-physiology registered a false positive on a drug test. His employer sent him to “rehab.” In actuality, it was an illegal mutant detention and research facility. Henri managed to escape. He has not let the experience deter him from using his skills and abilities to help others.

He now works under an assumed name at a Bien matinal! convenience store on Autoroute-15, just north of St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu. During his off hours, he listens to emergency radio and races to the scene as Rapide – often beating first-responders.
