Moses PriceHero Name:
Despite his upbringing, Moses is a pretty nice guy. He always seems to have something funny to say and a smile on his face. He loves to joke around and make people laugh. He has a serious side as well, usually reserved for missions or when someone has genuinely pissed him off. He becomes a different person then; focused, and no nonsense. It takes him a bit to open up to people, but once he does he shows deep loyalty to people he trusts and respects.
When it comes to fighting back against the Xeno's, Moses is militant; he is focused on his aims and goals and tries to let little else get in the way of that. People notice how different he gets when they're fighting as opposed to when they're not, but it's simply how he's wired and it's hard to change something like that if you even can. Heís a hard person due to his military upbringing, but he's not some meathead who is nothing but a soldier. He's just a guy that wants his people and his world to be safe, and will do anything to see that accomplished. Abilities:
Moses possess two connected, but unique sets of powers. Density Manipulation, and Gravity Manipulation. He has trained with them for years and has become quite proficient in that time.
Density Manipulation - By drawing on extra-dimensional mass from a unique subspace dimension he can access, or shunting his own current mass into said extra-dimensional subspace, he can raise or lower his density at will. What this means is that by shunting mass, he lowers his density to the point that he becomes intangible and is able to phase through solid matter. By doing the reverse and adding mass, he increases his durability and strength.
Gravity Manipulation - Moses manipulates gravity itself through the psionic manipulation of gravitons and anti-gravitons, the particles that essentially make gravity work how it does. By manipulating these particles, he can achieve flight. He can also raise or lower gravity in an area, making something weightless, or crushing it. He can even create a forcefield by compressing gravitonic energy around his body. Also, by projecting gravitons in a cohesive beam pattern, he can shoot energy blasts. He can further increase his strength by using his gravitonic powers, and with focus, can simulate telekinesis.
While not a super power, Moses' dad was a Marine and has trained him in everything from CQB to survival skills and everything else a soldier needs to survive.Origin:
Moses was born in Brixton, which is in South London. His city was designated EZ119-B12. His father David Price was an American Marine who'd moved to England to be with the woman he loved, a school teacher named Janelle Baker. They were together when the Dan'shee, and thankfully neither of them were harmed in the initial invasion or after. However both were subjected to experiments. Both of them were considered failures when neither showed any signs of genetic alteration.
Thankfully that meant they were allowed to live relatively normal lives. After a few years, they had Moses. Everything was alright until he was about four. A rebellion sparked in their city zone, and after the Xeno's put it down, they allowed those not involved to move to a different zone due to the massive damage done by bombings and fighting. They ended up in EZ316-A, and thankfully David had family there, so settling in wasn't too hard. Moses was raised like a normal kid, and did normal kid things. Until he was about 13. That's when his powers began to manifest.
Little things at first, like being able to lift more weight than usual when he worked out, or his elbow slipping through a table when he leaned on it. His parents noticed and it didn't take a super genius to figure that his powers were the result of the experimentation done on his parents all those years ago. while they didn't understand his powers, they wanted him in full control so he could hide them. If the Xeno's found out he had powers he'd be killed, or worse, taken in, experimented on more and pressed into service.
He trained in secret, becoming better and better as the days turned to weeks turned to months turned to years. His father had always told him that if you could do the right thing, you should do the right thing. And this made Moses want to fight back against the powers that be since he had the abilities to do so. He wasn't suicidal though, and fighting back alone would mean he probably wouldn't even be a footnote in history after he was killed for defiance.
So instead he used his powers in secret to make things better for the few people he could within EZ316-A, and without going directly against the Xeno's. He started one of his own gangs to add to the many already saturating the city. The difference with his though is that they help people and give them choices. A store owner doesn't have to pay protection, but if they do the price will be reasonable, they won't be threatened by Moses or his people, and they will absolutely make sure none of the other gangs mess with them. It's a nice little gig and it more than pays the bills. He has his powers for a reason, but until he finds out what that reason is, he's content with helping how he can and keeping his head down.Weaknesses:
Moses wields one of the four fundamental forces that bind the universe at his fingertips, but he's still a man. He needs to drink, he needs to eat, he needs to sleep. Without the basics of human survival, he will die. Thereís also the fact that he can be taken by surprise, and if he is, he can be injured and killed like a normal person, as his powers are not constantly on, they have to be activated.
All of his abilities run on his bodies store of energy; if thatís depleted, not only will his powers cease to work correctly if at all, heíll be physically drained as well. This will result in sluggish and lethargic actions. Beyond that, his powers mentally drain him as well and if he is drained, he'll be sleepy and slow to action.
When it comes to his density powers, they are not infallible. While he can become intangible, he can still be hurt by certain types of energy. For example, air is intangible, but it is still ionized when lightning strikes. This means that even if you can't physically touch him, he can still be harmed. Also manipulating his mass takes focus when going from one end of the spectrum to the other.
