Here’s my initial thought. Hopefully it works out well with what everyone is going for and the game as a whole, but we’ll see. As always, subject to chance.
Tachyon (the Beacon)
Abilities: Martial Arts (perfect timing), Acrobatics (perfect coordination)
Drives: help a teammate when they most need you, earn the respect of a hero you admire, tell someone your true feelings for them, reject someone who tells you “you shouldn’t be here”
How did you gain your skills? I’ve just always had really good timing. Like I always know what time it is and if I watch someone throw something, I can usually match the throw. I really wanted superpowers, but if all I have is good timing I’ll use it.
When did you first put on your costume? It wasn’t a costume but when Rampage was tearing apart the Jamison Building downtown, I was able to run through the falling debris to get some people out of there.
Who, outside the team, thinks you shouldn’t be a superhero? There’s this Waters guy at AEGIS that, after he found out I didn’t really have any superpowers didn’t think I should be putting myself into danger. But that’s like the AEGIS line about keeping kids safe. I know what I’m doing.
Why do you try to be a hero? Superheroes are the best. A lot of kids just care about pointless stuff like grades and dating, but superheroes are different! They care about helping and protecting people and that’s what I want to be.
Why do you care about the team? They’re heroes! They’ve got powers and they all try so hard to help people, I just need a chance to prove that’s who I am too!
