Real name: Randy O’Shae
Age: 16
Place of birth: Kilmallock, Ireland
Height: 5’9
Weight: 164 lbs
Hair: red
Eyes: Green.


History:
Randy O’Shae was born in the small village Kilmallock, near Limerick Ireland. He grew up with his parents, uncle and 3 little sisters. His mother worked as a grade school teacher and his father owned a small chain of diner’s called Shamrock.
As a result they were pretty well off and they lived in a large mansion just outside of town. School was not a really big issue for Randy. His grades were above average and he didn’t have to spend a lot of his time doing schoolwork.

Randy never was a really talkative person, preferring to spend his time alone. He was fond of nature and often spend hours in the forests around his hometown, enjoying the silence and serenity. His behaviour didn’t result in him having a lot of friends, but Randy was ok with that. The only person he really connected to was his uncle Kenny. On the weekends they liked to fish swim and do things one would expect a son doing with his Father.
Kenny always told Randy his brother seemingly low interest in his children, Randy in particular, was due to him being such a hard worker. Seamus O’Shae was indeed a busy man, but there was something else.

One night when Randy was 14 years old he woke up feeling there was something wrong. When he walked to his parents’ bedroom he noticed them absent, their bed still made. Next he made his way to his uncle’s quarters, finding them empty as well. Randy made his way downstairs and from the window he saw strange lights coming from a clearing in the nearby forest. He put on his clothes and went to investigate.
He took of at a run, following his hunch that he may find his parents at the place the lights were originating from. When he came closer a faint singing could be heard in a language he didn’t understand. He broke of his run, and approached the clearing very carefully. When he came close enough to see what was going on his hart sank. There, in the middle of the clearing a man lay bound by wrists and ankles, a duffle bag over his head. He knew his uncle well enough to deduce it was him. An array of strange coloured luminescent stone lay in a circle around him, pulsating with power. A small group of people stood touching the stones, all wearing green robes with hoods. They were chanting in a language Randy couldn’t place, some ancient Gaelic maybe. Then the chanting stopped and two robed people broke the circle, stepping forwards towards Kenny.
Taking of their hoods instantly recognized them as his parents, murderous intent showed on their face. His mother took out a knife and cut the bound man Loose. Seamus grabbed his brother and held him firmly.
“Please mighty Odáin, take this humble offer and give us your blessing”. Randy’s mother raised her blade, ready to strike…

At that point, something happened inside Randy. He leapt from his hiding place screaming:” Leave him alone, don’t hurt him”. Running towards his family his shape changed, he grew larger, covered in vines, branches and moss. He grew a set of additional arms and let out a loud bellow. Stunned, his mother seized her attack. Acting out of pure instinct Randy picked up his uncle and ran. He kept running for a good couple of hours when his uncle regained consciousness.
Setting him down on the ground Randy slowly transformed back to his normal size and appearance. Both men were shocked at what had happened that night.

His uncle explained to him that what had happened was his neo-sapien powers manifesting. Abilities he shared with both his father and himself. Seamus thaught that by sacrificing his own brother his powers would increase. Now that he knew his own son possessed the same abilities, he was sure to pursue them and kill him as well.

The next two years Kenny and Randy spent running and hiding, all the while Randy was trying to come to terms with the betrayal of his parents and his newfound abilities. Kenny trained him in the use of his powers as well as in basic self defense. He also instilled some basic arcane knowledge in Randy and learned him how to perform minor magical rituals. Eventually his parents caught up with him and tried to capture both Kenny and him. After barely escaping this encounter Kenny realised Randy wasn’t safe if he stayed with him. An acquaintance had told him of the new vindicators academy in Vienna and he enrolled Randy. He gave Henry a small pendant on the day he dropped him off, advising him to keep it close. “Slán agus beannacht leat”.


So that's Gae Bolg for you. I'm sorry it took so long.

Map is 5ft per square. I actually PM'd him about it earlier today ;) likely we'll follow the (speed 1 = 100ft/ 2 = 250 / etc.) been how he's run it before at least.

Basically we can cross the board and almost get back to the starting point.

Thanks, Oh Anomalous one. That kind of info makes strategy, not to mention proper movement soooo much easier. You're right on top o' things. Which is good. Somebody has to be.

And gentlemen? Don't call her Fa(ch)t. She's just big boned. :mrgreen:

If that's the case both Current and Impass can cross the map as a move action.

Amazing what low levels of super speed can do!

Anomaly is correct: the squares are 5'. It's weird because... I swore I put that in. When he asked me, I thought, "I know you know how to read" but then other people started asking so... maybe I'm just on crack. :oops:

As for Fach, she's 5'10", 140 lbs. She's a thick girl but it carries well.

As for Parabola, she's 5'6", 115 lbs. She's a bit more tomboyish than Fach so, a lot of that's muscle. She does have some tiny rolls protruding from the back of her uniform that Jason would quickly deduce she's self-conscious about. ;)

You know, as far as BMI's go 5' 10" and 140lbs isn't bad. She's probably got them big ol' child-bearin' hips.

As for Parabola...where on 5' 6" 115lbs are you gonna find rolls of anything? Well, maybe quarters if she uses the laundromat or the toll road alot.

Question-If Jason takes 10 on a Notice check for a total of 28, (and then the penalty for distance) will he be able to make out Current's little power up sequence?
