Name: Marcus “Wreck” Magnusson
Telekenisis (Limited to Non-living Matter)
Hurt & Harm (His Judgement modified sisters)
Marcus grew up in <Insert destroyed City Here>. His father was a construction worker and his mother a bookkeeper. His parents were far from rich, but they worked hard and saved well and provided a loving home for Marcus and his sisters, Haley and Harmony. Marcus inherited his work ethic and blue collar mentality from his parents which have served him as well or better than any super powers would acquire.
Marcus was a high school football star and hockey player and was looking at a full ride sports scholarship to University when Apocalypse came. Marcus would have been killed by one of Apocalypse’s “recruitment” squads while defending his family, but was spared by Blighter the team leader. Instead he was beaten within an inch of his life and his mother killed as an example of what happens when your resist Apocalypse. He still blames himself for his mother’s death. Marcus was separated from this family and assured that if he cooperated with his captors his sisters would be spared (they weren’t and were given the elixir as well but he does not know it or what the results were). Out of the twenty or so captives given the elixir with him, Marcus was the only one to survive.
Always strong Marcus became even stronger. He could leap great distances and developed a limited telekinesis based on non-living matter. Thinking he could still protect his sisters Marcus was put to work on Blighter’s “recruitment” squad. Marcus became one of Blighter top recruiters. He was a natural urban hunter with his new powers and behind the mask he wore he became feared by many and loathed himself for it.
It wasn’t until Marcus’s recruitment squad was attacked by members of the resistance that he found a chance to escape. The resulting combat killed most of this squad and all of the resistance squad but one, a badly wounded Diamondback. Thinking his squad was all dead (Blighter survived), Marcus took the wounded Diamondback and the human recruits that were just his captives and hid them in the rubble of the ruined city where they have been surviving on their own for a few weeks (this is where they will start in game). Marcus removed his mask and hid his old uniform before leaving with the fugitives so they would have no idea of his former allegiance. He has taken the nickname “Wreck” instead and is working to keep this ragtag group of fugitives safe until they can find the resistance.
Before Apocalypse Marcus was a strong, quiet kid. He has a great work ethic and a practical streak a mile wide. He knew he was stronger than most and it scared him a little so he tried to be very gentle around those smaller than himself. He still isn’t much of a talker, but broods over what he has done and worries about his sisters. He is very caring under his gruff exterior. Though he doesn’t think of himself as a leader the other refuges are beginning to look up to him and he feels he has to do his best for their sake. He took the name “Wreck” because of his sister Harmony who said he looked like a “Wreck” right before his first date.
Powers: Marcus’s powers are a manifestation of himself. He is strong and blue collar and it kills him inside to know that he has caused the death of many of the recruits he captured for Blighter. Marcus’s innate strength grew to supernatural proportions when he was administered the elixir. He was also “gifted” with telekinesis, but the manifestation of this mutation is limited to non-living matter such as concrete and steel. He couldn’t lift even a small child with his ability. This seems to match his personality to a tee as hurting people goes against everything his parents raised him to believe in.
