Knowing everything about everyone, especially anyone who could pose a threat to MingResponsibility:
To serve his master, Ming the MercilessSecret:
He has been in love with Princess Aura for years but refuses to let his true feeling be known as it could affect his status with Ming Abilities 74 + Skills 60 (120 ranks) + Advantages 32 + Powers 7 + Defenses 27 = 200 / 200Comments:
And how could I not build Ming without his right-hand man, Klytus? In the movie, he was kind of a wimp. I mean, Flash had been fighting for a good long while and with a little Teamwork from Barin, he took Klytus out like *finger snap* that.
Not my Klytus. I imagined him as sort of a Mongo’s version of an evil Batman. He makes it his business to know everything about everyone: any potential threats to Ming’s rule, any potential traitors, what Aura had for dinner, which concubine(s) Ming slept with last night, EVERYTHING
. And you don’t get to be the right hand of the ruler of the universe by not being able to hold your own in a fight so I made him wicked with a sword and decent with a blaster. Although that’s a last resort with him. He’s about knowing what’s going on ahead of time, having a plan and letting his soldiers do the fighting.
I also had to do a little riff on Aura’s comment in the movie about him wanting her for himself. It seems logical that he would secretly be in love with her but his loyalty to Ming and his ambition would make it so that he would rather torture her for his perceived slights than showing her any mercy.
A little trivia, he was played by British actor Peter Wyngarde, who was the inspiration for Jason Wyngarde, the well-known Mastermind from the Hellfire Club. Mastermind's name was an combination of Wyngarde's real last name and the first name of the character that made him famous, novelist turned sleuth Jason King. Kind of a pre-cursor to Castle, I suppose. Pretty cool.
