As Karma's character layout was a bit more extensive, I'll be borrowing it for my application!Biographical Information: Code Name:
Dulce DiasOther Aliases:
Vigilante Legal Status:
Dulce is not officially recognized as a citizen in any country.Place of Birth:
Rio de Janeiro, BrazilMartial Status:
Bred and raised by known villain, Baron Barros.Current Base of Operations:
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, with several smaller retreats scattered throughout South America. Extent of Education:
Intelligence has been scientifically enhanced. No official schooling.Religion:
Roman CatholicGroup Affiliation:
None. Background Information/Origin:
Dulce is the product of Baron Barros's numerous genetic experiments involving reptiles. The man had a particular affinity for snakes, which he used in tandem with traditional gangsters to traffic or steal everything from gold to drugs to men and women. Dulce was to be the "Alpha Snake", capable of directing his lesser brethren in combat scenarios while being capable of standing toe to tail with the increasing number of super heroes that threatened his profits.
Precisely why the snake came to disagree with his master is difficult to say, though some have hazard guesses involving increasing sympathy towards the men and women sold into slavery and prostitution rings. Possessing human intelligence, he also gained the capacity for human morality. However, he did not possess a willingness to blindly obey the laws that the Baron was so quick to subvert in order to avoid imprisonment. Rather than capture the villain and leave him to the Supers, Dulce did what came naturally.
He ate him.
With the toppling of a criminal empire as the basis for his reputation, Dulce quickly became a thing of legends. The suit was the final parting gift from his fork-tongued master, and had been intended to give him the edge needed in an age where any passerby could be hiding the ability to throw cars like dolls or shoot lightning from their fingertips.
And so it was that Brazil got a vigilante of its own, though it was not quite the one many had been hoping for. Dulce is considered a monster by many, and is almost universally feared and reviled by the public and criminals alike for his extreme methods. Collateral damage is kept surprisingly to a minimum, but very few cross his path that live long enough to be thrown in jail. Surprisingly, most law enforcement seem to hold him in high regard, if only for doing what they wish they could do. Regardless, the warrant for his arrest has been going strong for nearly a decade.Known Meta-Human Abilities:Poisonous Bite:
Due to extreme genetic tampering on the part of his former master, Dulce is capable of secreting a dangerously virulent toxin from his inner mouth. Lacking the fangs to properly inject it, he simply mixes it with his own saliva for a similar effect. Additionally, it can be spat from afar with deadly accuracy.Super Strength:
Both in and out of his mechanical suit, Dulce is abnormally strong by human and lesser metahuman standards. His strangulating grip is more than enough to crush bones, solid rock, and steel with minimal effort.Super Suit:
(Tech) Dulce's suit grants him an extremely diverse number of abilities, from tesla coils, sonic cannons, machine guns, and flamethrowers, to limited flight, submarine capabilities, armor, and of course, arms and legs. The full extent of the suit's modifications is a well guarded secret.Regeneration:
Strong enough to fend off moderate wounds in the heat of battle, but decapitation is as lethal to him as the next organism.Elasticity:
Dulce's stomach lining is strong enough to hold all but the strongest prey, and even durable enough to protect against penetrating weapons. His outer skin is not quite so powerful. Most people endeavor to keep in view of the latter, rather than the former.Enhanced Tracking Ability:
Though Dulce's sight is subpar by human standards, his sense of smell more than makes up for it. He is capable of seeing in the infrared. When out of his suit, even the smallest vibration does not go unnoticed.Particularities, Limitations, and Weaknesses:
Both in and out of his suit, Dulce is an extremely dangerous combatant with few weaknesses that can be exploited by the typical criminals he sets himself against. His military-grade arsenal and brutal fighting style makes him a terribly efficient vigilante, but against cosmic-grade or upper-tier threats he finds himself completely outmatched. His suit, while versatile, is not enough to match the super strength of the strongest heroes and villains, nor is its speed enough to keep up with sufficiently fast opponents.
The snake's greatest advantage against such individuals is his unique mind. Possessing the advantages of human intelligence and the patient cunning of a predatory reptile, this dual nature is enough to confuse or unnerve combatants that would otherwise completely overpower him. Driven more by fight or flight than the average hero, it is not unknown for Dulce to make tactical retreats instead of charging blindly into a hopeless fight. Personality:
Dulce Dias is surprisingly amiable for such a violent crime fighter, and is known to switch from formal vernacular to lewd joking at the drop of a hat. Though his species and nature works best on its own, it is clear that he has a particular craving for company. Living in the mud by oneself is perfectly fine for the average snake, but a human would quickly get cold and lonely in such an environment.Equipment, Weapons and Paraphernalia:
Mechanized Suit: (See Above)
Translator: This device, worn about Dulce's neck, allows him to communicate in human languages. It is sophisticated enough to sound more human than synthetic, but remains a bit too formal for everyday conversations.Skills, Talents, Hobbies, and Abilities:Capoeira:
When within his suit, Dulce is an enthusiast of the wildly unpredictable afro-brazilian fighting style. Though the suit is not quite flexible enough to make full use of its broad range of techniques, its speed and durability is formidable enough to balance that flaw.Ruthless:
Both in and out of his suit, Dulce fights like a snake. Every target is considered prey, and mercy is absolutely alien towards hostiles. A predator through and through, his brutality has earned him a healthy amount of respect amongst the criminal element. It is not unheard of for him to simply devour a particularly notorious villain whole. Sugar Addiction:
Obtained as the result of pampering by his former master, Dulce's taken name is quite appropriate. He has a particular love for hard candies, but detests anything chewy enough to seal his mouth shut.Physical Information: Ethnic Group:
Unknown. Has shown attraction towards humans, though most people prefer not to think about what that could imply.Age:
43 Feet, give or take a few inches.Weight:
2,300~lbs. Hair Colour:
A sort of milky greenish colour.Physical Appearance:
Even for an anaconda, it is immediately obvious that Dulce is monstrously large. His length is only outdone by particularly remarkable specimens of reticulated pythons, and his girth is second to none. His scales are adorned with a typical spotty pattern, and colored perfectly for blending in with trees and undergrowth. His wide mouth tends to be pulled into a sort of alarming smirk, and is the major hint at his enhanced intelligence. A plug has been fused to the base of his skull, and presumably allows him to sync up to his suit and speech translator.Baron Barros with a young DulceDistinguishing Characteristics:
Nothing beyond his abnormal size.Normal Attire:
When not fighting or amongst other heroes, Dulce simply languishes about as nature intended. Costume Description:
Dulce's prized possession is his super suit, which grants the triple gifts of enhanced protection, offensive capabilities, and opposable thumbs. At first glance its proportions seem completely at odds with the forces of gravity, as its comparatively slender legs hold up a particularly impressive torso that presumably holds his actual coiled body. However, the suit generally travels about on its massive upper arms, moving about with a gorilla-like gait and rarely pausing on its tapered feet for more than a few seconds. These same legs are outfitted with sharpened blades, which serve to enhance the damage of his sweeping kicks. The torso also holds an unknown assortment of weapons, from military grade to the products of so-called "super science". Its coloration blends almost perfectly with Dulce, allowing him a moderate amount of stealth in areas with low light. The only exception are the ornaments adorning the suit's collar, which look like the stylized feathers that Dulce's namesake was supposed to have possessed.
