== Character Bio ==
== Personal Information ==Legal Name:
Nathaniel Christopher AdamAlias:
Heterosexual Part of Gotham Residing In:
Gotham Heights== Physical Description ==
Nate is a big guy. He's 6'4, and about 250lbs. He's naturally large due to being Samoan on his mothers side, and clearly he eats his protein and veggies. Also he's a bit of a gym nut if it's not obvious, but considering his job and upraising, it's no surprise. He's a big fan of ink, and he has about a dozen tattoos, half tribal, half military themed. He may not be a fancy guy, but Nate is well groomed as his dad always said no "no matter what you do with your life or in your life, look good doing it".
On that note, he always keeps his hair cut close, or fully shaved. And he likes to keep his goatee trimmed. He's got deep hazel eyes and the ladies seem to love his smile. As mentioned he's not a complex guy, and that includes his style of dress. He tends to enjoy t shirts, jean, jackets, and boots. The only time you'll find him dressed up is for his formal military wear. When coated in his shell, Captain Atom resembles his human form, simply a metallic, silverish version. There is a red stylized atomic symbol on his chest, and both his gloves and boots are red as well. Sometimes flames roil from his eyes and skull.== Persona ==
Nate's father is ex-military, and his grandfather on his mom's side is a retired Major. He grew up in a military household, which means he learned what discipline was at a very young age. It's shaped him into the man he is today. Nate is a very disciplined man. He always wakes up on time, he makes his appointments on time(when work doesn't interfere), and he follows through with his plans. A structured life, is an easy life. He's a polite and respectful person, always using "sir" or "ma'am" until he knows a person well enough. And he will never disrespect you unless you give him a damn good reason, but if you've given him a reason, he's lost all
respect for you.
He's not bossy, but he did lead his own squad for several years, so he's used to people at least paying attention to what he has to say. However as a military man, he can take orders as well as give them as long as they make sense. He's an honest and straightforward guy, so he hates lies and dishonesty, yet he's done some things he can't speak about to anyone so he understands that sometimes they are necessary. He likes to think he's a simple man, but he can actually get pretty complex.== Key Skills == 1) Military Tactics -
Due to being in the Air Force since he was 18, and having over 300 successful missions, Nathaniel has a keen military mind, and is able to come up with battle plans and tactics as well as recognize those of the enemy given time and reference.2) Soldier -
Nate is a highly trained soldier, and aside from learning to shoot and to fight and to kill, he's been given more than that. He knows how to survive, he knows how to act in stressful situations, he knows how to keep his cool when others are losing their heads.3)Trained Fighter -
Nate's dad had him in self defense classes almost before he could walk, and he was already a damn good fighter when he joined the Air Force. But he never stopped training and is incredibly skilled and uses those skills even as Captain Atom to make him more effective. His favorite forms are Krav Maga and Silat.== Advantages ==
[Powers stamped with * indicate powerful and esoteric abilities that for the sake of the game will be regulated by me. Captain Atom will use these abilities freely on standard NPC's and such, but for use against other PC's and boss level supervillain NPC's(like Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, Darkseid, Raven, Artemis, etc...) will be talked to with other players and the GM's about the usage and effectiveness of said abilities in any encounters.]Dilustel Armor:
Dilustel is the metal that comprises the alien lifeform known as the Silver Shield. Captain Atom was bonded with a large amount of this metal during an experiment, and it merged with him on a molecular level. As a result, he possess a symbiotic and psychic bond with the living metal. He can summon it to cover any or all of his body at a moment's notice. The metal is nearly impervious to damage, and highly resistant to most forms of energy and even types of magic. This makes Captain Atom nearly invulnerable, as well as imbuing him with enough strength to fight evenly with beings of extreme strength like Superman. It also enhances his speed, reflexes, and even his senses as long as he is tied into the Quantum Field through his armor.Chronokinesis*:
Captain Atom can time travel on his own, without being forced to Quantum Jump. However their are limitations involved. Essentially, he can travel forward to any point he wants, but he can only
travel forward through time. For some reason he can't go back under his own power. When time traveling, Atom can only travel back to the exact moment in time when he first left, like a slingshot effect.Flight:
Captain Atom can fly under his own power. In atmosphere he makes sure to never go so fast he damages the environment around him, however once he breaks atmosphere he's capable of quickly traveling through the stars.Atomic Manipulation/Transmutation*:
Captain Atom's power isn't what it is because the name tested well in research groups. It's because his control of the Quantum Field allows him to manipulate atoms and molecules. Because of this, not only can he control and create energy, but matter as well. With his powers, he's forcibly shifted a metahuman out of their powered form, and he's transmuted arrows into butterflies and more. Self-Sustenance:
When fully armored in his shell, Nathaniel is satiated by the infinite energies flooding through his body, so he has no need to eat, sleep, drink, or even breathe.Techno Interface:
Atom can telepathically interface with most forms of technology like computer systems, and can speak, write, think, and read binary. It's been speculated that his thoughts can be broadcast and interpreted by electronics like a wi-fi signal, allowing them to communicate.Power Augmentation*:
Atom's powers are fueld by his will, and when necessary, he can use his Quantum abilities to boost himself beyond his limits temporarily, like granting himself increased hearing, or strength, or speed.Quantum Field Manipulation*:
Captain Atom's only true power is the summoning his his Dilustel armor. However, the armor is incredibly unique and resonates at such a frequency that it has a direct connection with the Quantum Field. This basically means he can control, absorb, create, and manipulate theoretically infinite amounts and combinations of energy.
This grants him all of his other abilities. With his ability to manipulate energy at such a high level, Captain Atom has even discovered the ability to alter his size, teleport, phase through walls, and more. His powers are limited by his willpower and imagination, but are incredibly vast nonetheless. And the reason being that he is one of the 5 "Elementals". Beings that possess unparalleled control over universal elements like Fire(Firestorm), Water(Naiad), Earth(Swamp Thing), and Air(Red Tornado). Atom is of course the "Quantum" Elemental, granting him control over energy.
== Disadvantages == Energy Overload:
While Captain Atom can absorb and channel theoretically infinite amounts of energy, it is possible to overload him by force feeding him too much energy too fast, thereby circumventing his ability to absorb any amount by giving too large an amount for him to successfully absorb all at once. Overloading him is incredibly painful, but causes no lasting harm.X-Ionizer Tech:
The Dilustel metal taken from the Silver Shield is nearly indestructible, so to experiment the government needed a way to cut it. The result was X-Ionizer technology, which could manipulate the molecular structure of objects, making materials super compact and therefore super dense, increasing the durability of said object. Bladed items given the procedure gain a monofilament cutting edge, allowing them to cut through most anything, especially the Dilustel. You could take a dull butter knife, but make it an X-Ionizer knife, and it could slice through Atom's armor like...well, it's pretty obvious isn't it? Quantum Jumping:
A phenomena coined as "Quantum Jumping" is a side effect of overloading Atom's current energy threshold. The result is that he is sent hurtling uncontrollably through time. Forward or backward depends on the type of energy, and how far is dependent on how much excess energy he's absorbed beyond his current limit.While his Quantum Jumps have the potential to be useful, they are more often a hindrance as they're usually impossible to control without outside aid. He also runs the risk of altering time if he isn't extremely careful when sent into the past. He can also be forced to jump if his Dilustel armor is breached and he has enough energy built up.Mental Blocks:
Captain Atom is without a doubt one of the most powerful beings in existence. He can create entire worlds, full of sentient life. He can even create complex beings like humans and grant them super powers. His powers allow him to toy with the seams of reality on a whim. However his brain subconsciously knows that that much power can be too much to comprehend, much less safely wield. So he has unconsciously set in place mental blocks to limit his power, and can only access the higher levels when in extreme danger or it's absolutely necessary.Political Puppet:
Due to changes in military doctrine in the past 18 years, and the governments unwillingness to not only accept their fuck up, but do right by the person who was fucked up, Nate's in a bad way. The US Government(primarily General Eiling) have his nuts in a vice. His presidential pardon was revoked since Clinton is no longer in office. And in lieu of execution or imprisonment(like they could hold or hurt him), Eiling is basically using the Captain as a human weapon of mass destruction with the precision of a scalpel. He wants to fight back, but in doing so he'd lose more than he already has, so he's a reluctant puppet until he can find all the evidence he needs to finally clear his name. But for now, Eiling could order him to to attack a superhero because he considers them a threat, and Nate wouldn't have a choice.
== Background ==
On May 3rd, 1967, 2am, Nathaniel Christopher Adam was born in California. His father Anthony had taken leave to be there for the birth, and immediately saw a bright future for his boy. Anthony was an active soldier, and a damn good one, but with the birth of his son he took a promotion that put him behind a desk, but let him come home every night to see his boy. Janelle had been a nurse, but her father, Major Harris decided to use his saved money to help raise the child and let Janelle be a full time mom.
Little Nate was raised in a kind, loving home, although there was plenty of discipline. He was enrolled in self defense courses almost before he could walk, and knew how to shoot by the time he was 7. His life was ordinary, but everyone could tell Nate was special. In high school, he joined ROTC as well as the football team. He was his teams crack shot, and one of the best players on the field. He graduated with a 4.0 GPA and scholarship offers to a dozen schools.
He turned them all down though to join the Air Force like his dad. He was a natural born soldier and breezed through basic, motivating others to push themselves to make it as well. Once he was fully enlisted as an Airman, he worked proved himself time and time again. Nate started a steady rise through the Air Force ranks with his first mission, and before long had not only ground ops, but flight missions under his belt as well considering he became one of the Air Force's best fighter pilots.
Over the years, he racked up successful mission numbers in the triple digits, and was eventually promoted to Captain. He even found happiness with a loving wife and two wonderful children. Kiera was his world, and Riley and Nate Jr. were the reasons he woke up in the morning. With power came responsibility though, and the brass started handing him more and more off the books missions; black ops, wet works, shadow cabinet type stuff.
One mission involved leasing his company to the CIA to stop a civil war they'd
started, but lost control of when their puppet dictator got killed unexpectedly. He and his boys got boots on the ground and started cleaning up the CIA's mess, but at one point he was given orders to burn a village to the ground and kill everyone. He refused, so Colonel Wade Eiling took command of the situation, carrying out the mission. Due to his refusal to kill those innocent people, when the story leaked to the media, Eiling painted him as the mastermind, saying he'd gone rogue and no longer had American interests at heart.
They wouldn't even let him see his family, because if he got to talk to them, he'd tell them the truth. His family would go to the papers; it would turn into a shit show nobody in authority wanted. He was sentenced to execution, but before his day in the chamber, the Air Force came to him with an offer. Subject himself to an experiment with an extremely high chance of death, or be executed. If the experiment was a success, he'd get a Presidential pardon and his rank reinstated.
Considering the execution meant he was guaranteed to die, while the experiment meant he was only almost
guaranteed to die...he chose the experiment. The experiment involved strapping him into an alien spaceship, and to test the durability of the craft, they set it right on top of a "super nuclear" bomb, and detonated it. When the dust cleared, there appeared to be nothing left of Nathaniel or the ship. The blast seemed to have vaporized them and the government classified "Project Atom" a failure. Over the course of the next eighteen years, Kiera remarried to Eiling, and his kids grew up. Unfortunately, Kiera died in a car accident before Nate got to see her again.
Then eighteen years later on the same day, Nathaniel returned in an explosion of energy. The explosion had bonded the hull of the ship to his body, fusing them at the molecular level. In doing so, he was allowed to absorb the energy of the nuke, but it blasted him forward in time...exactly eighteen years. And who was there to greet him? Wade fucking Eiling. Due to nearly two decades he'd been gone, the government contained him and declared the offered pardon null and void. Of course due to Wade's insistence. When he was done, he basically blackmailed Nate into working for him. The one good thing is he's been able to see his children, but it's weird explaining to your two grown kids that you didn't abandon them, you were just lost in time for nearly twenty years. He's getting to know them all over again though. Nate has been faithfully serving the US government as a "deployable asset" since his return, but he's been working to clear his name and is close now. And then he'll be free of Eiling and can use his powers for what's really good, not just as a nuclear powered gun they can point and click at whatever target they want.
