Background: Simon grew up in an apparently average 20th century Earth. Strange things started happening around him shortly after puberty. For 20 years the power grew and in his mid-thirties the Covenant came for him. The Covenant is a shadow, mufti-governmental organization that seeks to keep magic secret from the general populace. His family was killed and he "ran". His magical abilities suddenly became clear to hi ad he gated into the cosmos.
It was a long shot, but I really want to get that character into a game one of these days. I'm just surprised I was able to squeeze it into 250 points. Anyway, I'll see about a less out-there character - perhaps a super or a wuxia type...maybe both....

Name: Andon Phsyical Description: Closer to eight feet than seven, with the muscles to match. Beetle brow and jutting chin, slightly grayish skin, lined and weathered face, dark eyes, pointed teeth. Character Concept: Genetically engineered to be a super-soldier, but the training didn't stick (too much conscience and independent thinking). Andon wound up dirt poor in the wrong part of L.A., where the sun don't shine even when you're above ground and you get used to the sounds of violence real quick. These days, Andon has staked out a territory and brought everyone in his little corner of the ghetto under his personal protection, enforced with sword taller than most men.
He's sort of like a knight in shining armor, minus the horse, wealth, social prestige, commitment to a fair fight, shininess, and basically everything except the skills, chivalry, and the sword. Special Abilities: Andon's a physical powerhouse beyond human norms, and he has a very nice sword as signature gear. He might be bringing along a few minor (he can't afford more than minor) ultra-tech toys, but maybe not. The World: Los Angeles, at an unspecified point in a dystopian future. Let's called it 2350.
