Admittedly the sheet's a bit harder to make but here's my idea.
'Alter Ego Costume'Character sheetAlter Ego:
Dr. Timothy St-JamesAlignment: VigilanteGender:
Heterosexual, but willing to act homosexual for a laugh.No-No's:
An idealist that dreams of a better future. Sometimes too the point that it feels like he was born too early. A rare mix of ego and compassion, as he's fully aware that he's a genius but genuinely wants to use his gifts to make the world better. Whatever it takes.
'Secret IdentitySecret Identity occupation:
College Professor of Physics and EngineeringBackground
Timothy St. Johns was born in what later would be known as Paradice City's "Cancer Road". This suburb would one day make the news when it was discovered that among those who lived in one of the houses for longer then 6 months the cancer rate was a horrifying 93%, with a fatality rate of at least 86% by current numbers- not that any of the residents knew that at the time. All Timothy and his parents knew was that somehow a 4 year old got a type of throat cancer normally only seen in people who have smoked for decades.
It would be a tough battle with Timothy too sick to start school with his peers, but the other children in the cancer ward would be his first real friends. Home-schooled by his parents and allowed to go at his own pace he discovered an aptitude for mathematics and science. By the time the cancer went into remission he was two grades ahead of children his own age, but not without cost. The cancer had absolutely ravaged his throat, years of reconstructive surguries were undertaken to even allow him to eat solid food again let alone talk. More telling was the psychological wounds as he had literally watched almost all of his earliest friends die, often painfully, and was unable to voice even simple concerns let alone his actual opinions.
Intellectually, he was praised as a boy genius who had completed his PhD by his 21st birthday. Psychologically he was mess, the exposure of the Cancer Road cover-up in his late teens along with the cancer deaths of his parents before graduation transformed a quiet prodigy content to be left alone into a fiery ball of rage unable to express the simplest of opinions without violence.
Then a whistleblower revealed that the pharmaceutical company that made his cancer treatments had been diluting them for profit since the 70's. Snapping entirely he began to see himself as the voice and avenger of the individual. The world thinks the court ordered therapy is working, the truth is that Vox was born. As Vox he's anarchist terrorist with seemingly impossible levels of technical aptitude. He has no powers but he's shown near superhuman levels of skill in hacking, drone engineering, bomb making, and strategy. And he uses those skills too, as a self-appointed avenger of the innocent and voice of the people.
He intends to Burn Paradice City, Burn it until it's Free.
