I had a player drop this story and it is one that I am very close to. Not looking for someone to pick up the exact character and I am willing to start things over and you take the role I want filled and make it your own and we go from there.
Final Watch is a story set in New Orleans. My character is one of a group of characters I created back with the first Marvel Superheroes Role Playing game, basically a X-Men like group based in Atlanta that I called the Free Corps. My character, Will Stuart, used to be the leader of the group and a mutant that could transform himself in to meteorite crystal and had superior super strength near equal to the heavy weights of the marvel universe and could fly. During a mission, Will had to push himself beyond his own body's endurance to recover and he burned out his powers, and nothing done has been able to revive them.
This caused a crisis of self for Will as he went from an active leader and hero to a civilian with nothing to contribute. As he was dealing with this crisis, his sister whose powers were only useful against other mutants or enhanced beings, was raped by a gang. This was a shatterpoint for Will, and he "borrowed" a prototype law enforcement powered armor that his friend and weapon designer had built. He used this armor to track down the gang and take them down. He almost killed them, but he managed to hold himself back.
After this, Will decided he needed to leave Atlanta an get away from his old life. This was met with mixed results with some of his team, two of his female members that were basically using him for sex not wanting him to go, while his weapon designed friend, Gene, understood. He gave Will the powered armor and told him that he trusted Will to put it to good use, and to stay in touch. Will then decorated the armor and called himself Strike Eagle. He now operates out of New Orleans as a vigilante, doing his best to stop the gang, the drug cartels, and the mob from ruining the city.
Your character is the new Captain of the NOPD's Special Operations Unit, a unit designed to take on the criminal threats that conventional law enforcement cannot handle. The story will be about our characters relationship and how it evolves as a new threat makes itself known in the City, and every hero, and the Special Operations Unit, are among the first targets it means to eliminate.
Those of you familiar with Batman Year One, (or the first 75% of Batman Begins) will understand the type of tension and drama I am looking for between our characters, save I want it to go to the next step and be an intimate relationship. I am up in the air if it is just raw sex and nothing more, or if it is the start of a romantic relationship, or a doomed relationship like a Batman/Catwoman angle.
My on and offs are in my signature page, as well as links to some of my work here on E. The previous story can also be found here Final Watch
. Once more you do not need to take over the Maria Johnson character and if you want to come up with your own character for the role of the head of the Special Operations unit and we start from scratch, I am good with that. if you do want to take over the character and we pick up where the story left off I am good with that as well. If any of this interests you do drop me a PM and let me know. I can't wait to hear from you.
