LionHeart (Real Name: Richard ‘Ric’ McInroy)
A Sample Character for Wearing the Cape
Richard was a exception between exceptions: a white guy in the black-dominated Bronx, he was schooled as fair as he could, paying the money from his works. However, he counted cent by cent. When his father suffered an brain stroke, he had gone crazy to help his father. It was when he chosed to make some “quick money”, to rob some ATMs…
In the process, a C-Class Ajax bouncer had found him and his friends. Seeing the Ajax snapping his friends spine as a twig triggered in Richard (already an athletic guy, and somewhat competent as a football and Rugby player) his breakthrough, and he smashed the bouncer as much as he could, and the bouncer just saved himself when a wall almost fell under some kids. Richard held the wall enough to the kids runs, but this gave the time the bouncer needed to run away.
His father now strained into a bed, recovering day by day, his mother just making enough to warrant they would not starve, Richard chosed to go as a gang member of some lower-Class local breakthroughs. This made him collect some big bucks, that he assured they would go totally for his father treatment.
It was when he was catched by some of the local supermasks and the fight was intense. He was now more experienced with his powers, more developed, and so the collateral damage was intense. However, the heroes noted that he fought in ways to avoid people being hurt.
Anyway, it was when the so-called Bronx Shoulder, one of the most dangerous Ajaxes in NYC, was captured.
In prison, he suffered a lot. Not physically: as an Ajax, almost nothing below military-grade weapons could even scratch him. But emotionally: as he was put into solitary, this almost made him go crazy.
In the judgment, the heroes’ After-Action Reports were read, and this put him under some scrutiny. The judge put him under life sentence, however under parole as, although he was fighting to be not put under justice, there was no casualities and a smaller collateral damage, either on hurt people or destroyed property, that what could be expected.
The terms of parole was:
He accepted the terms and gone for training into HWB. Escorted by at least three A-Class guys from FBI and HSA, he was sent to Edinburg, the only place where HWB have a strong enough infrastructue to support him. In the meantime, his dad, after pardoning him on what he did, had died.
In Edinburg, he passed the same training HWB recruits receives, although at night he gone to the HWB jail and stay for night. It was on those time that a talent that he didn’t developed by time was revealed: he’s a great cook, and worked a lot into his cooking while in jail as part of his chores.
Now, five years after his judgement he was alloted to Genebra, to be placed into any HWB team. And now he’s another person, as much as he now have a new name, LionHeart, sanctioned under his parole’s terms. He’s okay with his situation and wants to do his best. However, he feels some time and again the old urge from “Bronx Shoulder” lurking into his mind and he wants to make them go away. The most shameful thing for him is the special chip it was implanted into his neck to detect his position over time.
