Let me know what you think and what you want adjusted.
Ollie, You Fucking Prick!, Selfish Bastard, ShitbagAliases:
Single…ish. Depends on what day it is really.Kinks:
Anything and everything. Oliver will try anything once. Probably twice just to be sure.Age:
Stephen Strange - Father (Missing)
Mother - Unknown - Presumed missing or dead. Oliver likes to play it off that he hopes she’s dead and she stays that way. He’s got some issues.
Wong - Servant to Stephen Strange and raised Oliver (deceased)
Jennifer Kale - Friend to Stephen Strange and Wong. Helped raise Oliver. (deceased)
Qing - Cousin to Wong, servant to Oliver Strange and a bit of a contemporary to him. (Missing)Players:Wong -
Raised Oliver even when Dr. Strange was around for Oliver’s first ten years. Wong taught Oliver kung fu, managed Oliver’s estate as well as trying to “manage” Oliver.Jennifer Kale -
A mixture of mother and older sister to Oliver. Jennifer moved into the Sanctum Sanctorum when Wong reached out to her and asked for help with Oliver. Jennifer always had a calming influence on Oliver. Over the years Jennifer made multiple attempts to teach Oliver sorcery and while he retained some of it he was quite adamant about not becoming his father.Dormmamu -
Dormmamu has nothing better to do than hunt Oliver. There’s a couple things stacked against Oliver. First; he’s the son of Dr. Stephen Strange and Dormammu hates Dr. Strange. This wouldn’t be that big a deal as Dormmamu has a moderately sized list of mortals that he hates and wants to turn their lives into a living hell. Except there’s the second thing. Oliver has a hooded cloak and a pair of boots that belongs to Dormammu and he wants them back. Dormmamu has sent a number of demons forth to seek out Oliver and retrieve the magical artifacts as well as Oliver so that he can be delivered to Dormmamu for an eternity of torture.==Description==Height:
168 lbsPhysical Description:
Brown hair, hazel eyes and a penchant for a couple of days worth of facial hair. Oliver has been trying out the “hero” thing for the last year and he’s found that it helps to be in shape. So…he’s exercising. He was never really out of shape prior to this but there’s a big difference between “healthy” and “crime fighter worthy”. He’s working towards the latter.Personality Description:
Abrasive (he thinks he’s a tell-it-like-it-is-sort), confident (some might say cock-sure), funny (he thinks so) , emotionally unavailable (he and those in his life can agree on this one), devoted…if you put up with him long enough. Classic under-achiever. Intelligent…but he’s sure as fuck not going to show you.Background/History:
When the Sorceror Supreme went missing during Oliver's eleventh year; Wong; ever the devoted servant raised Oliver as best he could. While capable and devoted, Oliver proved to be a significant challenge for the aging Wong. He employed the assistance of the sorceress, Jennifer Kale and his younger cousin, Qing to help watch over Oliver.
As it turned out, Dr. Strange had made a number of intelligent and seemingly timely investments over the years and had amassed an impressive fortune. This allowed Oliver to live a very easy life; so much so that often, Oliver would go out of his way to make life less easy for himself as well as his three "keepers".
In his late twenties; on a weekend where he was feeling particularly bored and particular resentful of his absentee father; Oliver found a particularly well-warded and obfuscated room tucked away in the Sanctum Sanctorum. There, he found an abundance of ancient tomes, occult artifacts and arcane as well as profane objects. Suffice to say; Oliver explored the room thoroughly.
Of all the things that he explored and examined a briefcase (of all things) covered with runes and placed precisely inside some manner of arcane circle was what caught his attention.
Within the briefcase he found a strange, hooded cloak, boots and a pair of high caliber pistols.
It was only a few hours later that Oliver revealed that the items once belonged to the villain known as The Hood. The boots allowed him to walk (or run on air) and the cloak allowed him to become entirely invisible. The pistols? Well...they were not as subtle as he liked but holding both of them at the same time did make him feel bad ass.
Oliver had a handful of "adventures" as he grew used to the cloak and the boots when he returned to the Sanctum Sanctorum one evening to find it under assault by a number of demons. As it turned out; removing the items from the warded briefcase and the protective circle had alerted the previous owner and all around terrible, ancient being; Dormammu to their existence once more. Eager to possess the artifacts once more, Dormammu sent some of his very best demons to retrieve them. While unsuccessful at finding the desired items the demons had done an exemplary job of torturing and killing Wong and Jennifer Kale while Qing was nowhere to be found.
Using minor spells as well as the pistols and his new abilities, Oliver was able to destroy a few of the demons and drive the rest of them away. It was after he had finished cleaning up the remains of Wong and Jennifer that he discovered he was the cause for the assault. Oliver did not report their deaths to the police. He really had no idea what to explain to them so after he properly saw to their remains it is now only him that lives in the sanctum sanctorum with brand new wards set to keep Dormammu's minions at bay.
Oliver is motivated now to stop being so selfish (not so easy to do), find Qing and learn more from her about what happened that night as well as redeem himself for the deaths of Wong and Jennifer.
He uses the boots and cloak (and pistols if necessary) for what he deems to be..."for good”. He can only be out of the Sanctum Sanctorum for a little more than twelve hours before Dormammu is able to locate him once more. Oliver has been successful at trading away a few of his father’s artifacts in order to obtain some of his own. A ring made of copper that appears to be enchanted and allows him to obfuscate his location further from Dormmamu’s scrying spells.
It’s not entirely effective however and Oliver still finds himself on the run of sorts. It’s getting more and more difficult to leave and return to the Sanctum Sanctorum and while there is a limit to how many demons Dormmamu can have on this plane at one time; the demons are getting more clever and keen to Oliver’s tricks.==The Special Stuff==Roster Position:
Minor Sorcery - Oliver is the son of the Sorcerer Supreme and quite literally grew up in the Sanctum Sanctorum. He was surrounded by magic while growing up and continues to be exposed to it. Because of that, Oliver is capable of casting minor spells but anything beyond that requires a degree of discipline that he doesn’t have…or that he doesn’t wish to develop.
Invisibility - Oliver’s hooded cloak allows him to turn invisible for as long as he can hold his breath. (2 minutes and 22 seconds) This is magical invisibility which means that this prevents him from being seen by infrared or any manner of technological optics. He can be detected by sonar/radar however should someone be clever enough to try such a thing. This does not make him silent. Footsteps can still be heard if he’s lumbering about like an ox. (He tries to avoid lumbering)
Walk on Air - Oliver can do just that because of his boots. It’s not quite flying but it certainly beats walking.
True Sight - Because of the cloak, Oliver can see through all manner of magical, psychic and technological based “illusions”
Enchanted bullets - if given the time...and if he's actually using his head for once, Oliver can enchant some of the bullets he uses in his pistols to have various unusual effects.
Concealment - Oliver has an ancient Babylonian ring made of brass that when worn, he can obscure his face with darkness. When worn it also makes it very difficult for any manner of divination or scrying spells to locate him. This also includes “finding him by his thoughts” for any clever psychics out there. It also makes it impossible to Google "Oliver Strange”. Seriously. it’s fucked up but it’s true. Anything that has remotely anything to do with Oliver won’t show up in a Google search because of the ring. He suspects it’s because Google is run by a bunch of evil elder god fucks. It’s possible he’s wrong but he likes to assure himself that it’s possible he’s right.Skills:
Kung fu - Oliver knows it! He learned it from Wong and trained for years. He could be considered a black belt...if demons cared about black belts he would be set!
Pistols - Oliver is getting better at using not just one but both pistols. For the moment; wielding two pistols simultaneously and holding them in menacing ways is still more effective than actually shooting them both at something.Weaknesses:
Oliver is a man. A normal, possibly over-confident man. He has no special protection. He’s not super strong or super resilient and yet he’s super confident enough to think that he won’t wind up super dead.Extras:
In the last year Oliver has done an excellent job of establishing ties with not just the New York black market as well as the “occult” black market. If Oliver can’t get you what you’re looking for; chances are he “knows a guy.” (Please note that “guy” might actually mean a woman…or…some being from another dimension. Oliver can’t be held responsible for the people he knows.)
Oliver still has access to the Sanctum Sanctorum although he’s reluctant to go there very often due to…well…the demons waiting for him outside of it. If accessed; Oliver can use the library there as well as any number of ancient occult artifacts that he probably knows how to use and might help without tearing apart reality and sending everyone to hell.Costume Description:
Oliver has learned how to “change” the colour of the yellow hooded cloak. He can now change it to whatever colour he wishes … which is generally black but sometimes pink if he’s trying to impress a group of high school girls.
Boots - He wears them. They allow him to walk on air so despite their archaic and well-worn appearance…he wears them.
Aside from that…he acknowledges that he could probably do better when it comes to an actual costume aside from a t-shirt and jeans he wears along with his other items.==Related Goodies==Face Claim:
