Character Sheet

Appearance

Built like a gymnast, tall and wiry. Though even without his powers he's stronger than he looks. Messy blond hair and green eyes.

His cape outfit is tight, having very little that can get caught on things. A sleeveless shirt, bracers on his forearms and padded fingerless gloves. Sleek helmet connected to the neck with flexible material. The whole thing is coloured in muted grey and shiny gold.

  • Rock climbing (getting just a li'l neglected)
  • Sleight of hand
  • Including coin and card tricks
  • Juggling

Mentality

Hyperactive, has trouble sitting still, always has to be moving. Prone to pacing, fiddling with things, or just tapping his fingers. Gets antsy if he doesn't use his power for extended times.

Hates being cooped up, likes to be outside, likes to have a way 'out' no matter where he is.

Hobbies include jogging and video games, specifically bullet hells.

Has some unprocessed trauma regarding his mother. He refuses to stop and grieve, afraid that he will break down and be unable to get up again.

Power

Trigger type: Natural Mover

Slingshot has a personal telekinesis field, which needs to 'grab' onto something to work.

Range of 2 meters, measured from his center of mass.

He can make jumps and flips that belong in games or anime, slingshot himself across surfaces, and even change his trajectory in mid-air as long as he has something to grab onto. He is still subject to natural laws like gravity and inertia, but he can stretch them to such a degree he comfortably calls them the "suggestions of physics".

His top speed is slightly faster than a full sprint.

What he grabs onto must be at least 2/3rds of his mass. If it's less than his full mass it does also feel some recoil. It's not Manton-limited, he can grab onto both objects and people.

While conscious, he will never crash. He automatically catches himself if he gets too close to a surface.

He has a few minor powers, both supporting and derived from his main ability.

  • Can sense any objects and surfaces his power can grab onto within his range
  • Minor Thinker sense for trajectories
  • Supernatural sense of balance
  • Noctis cape

Backstory

Max' father died when he was young, so his mom put twice the effort into making sure he had a good childhood. Making sure he was happy and had fun, but not coddling him.

They both had a love for nature, so they often went hiking together. During their last hike however, the path they took collapsed and they fell into a crevice. Max got stuck only a few meters in but his mother... She fell all the way down.

Max himself was stuck, trying to get out for several hours, reaching out for handholds but just missing them every time.

Eventually it started to rain, and the path collapsed further. Seeing the rocks fall down almost in slow motion, the impending death if he didn't *get out of there*, was finally enough for Max to TRIGGER.

A hero happened to find him while he made his way back to the city. After a short talk he decided to join the Wards, to get a safe place, some purpose, and action.
