I was brainstorming some characters to add to The Uncanny Adventures of Lyra the Large and this is what I've come up with. Lyra's own little "Rogues Gallery" of sorts. These aren't all villains, though, and they may not make their way into the story, but lemme share a little information with you.
Real Name: Keith Falhark
Appearance: Approx. 5’ 7’’. Wears red plaid hunter’s jacket, fingerless gloves, John Deere cap, black balaclava, jeans, and heavy boots.
Powers and Abilities: Not a metahuman, but has superb reflexes and tenacity. Extremely apt with a trusty under-over shotgun and a few homemade “trick shells”, which include, but are not limited to, bolas, grapple, harpoon, flechette, incendiary, and explosive slugs.
Personality Traits: A carefree demeanor ill-fitting of his apparent penchant for small-time crime. Displays a prominent southern accent and is generally polite and friendly. Despite this, however, he seems to be unable to grasp the concept of remorse, making him willing to do next to anything. Loves to “hunt”, especially if his quarry is costumed vigilantes.
Real Name: Unknown or N/A
Appearance: 10-foot tall iron behemoth. Bipedal with a wide-shouldered, Hulk-like frame. Displays red, glowing eyes. A long “mane” of sorts decorates his head, comprised of razor-sharp arrowheads. Talon-like fingers.
Powers and Abilities: Super strength--which is expected from his appearance--nigh-invulnerability, and unlimited stamina. Able to expel directed energy from his body in the form of lightning. Can reattach dismembered limbs seamlessly.
Personality Traits: Is fully capable of fluent english speech, but prefers to remain mostly silent. And, despite his brutish appearance, he is very deep and thoughtful. Prone to fits of rage.
Real Name: Cyrus Insilico
Appearance: 6’ even. Left half of skull is plated with metal. Right half has vestiges of wispy, grey hair. Thin frame with pale skin. Wears an intricate robe of green and silver.
Powers and Abilities: Able to calculate nearly all possible outcomes with perfect logicality. Master technologist and hacker. Proficient in hand-to-hand combat when necessary.
Personality Traits: Due to having the left half of his brain replaced with circuitry, he is absolutely emotionless and calculating. He speaks concisely and only when he needs to, without any flair or flourish.
Obsidian Sentinel and Smoke Banshee
Real Names: Unknown, Richard Manna
Appearances: Obi is approx. 7’ 2’’. Body is made of glossy, black rock that is shaped very much like plate armor, albeit more jagged and natural-looking. Right hand is twice as big as the left. Smoke is a formless mass of sentient smog. His primary appearance is a vague humanoid with white eyes, snaking “dreadlocks” from the back of his head, and a cheshire smile.
Powers and Abilities: Obi is capable of feats of enormous strength and geomancy. Carries a shield and a large “sword” edged with red crystals that can be superheated and can cut through nearly anything. Smoke can shapeshift reflexively, become solid, change his color, and take on just about any appearance. His strength is limited and cannot exceed that of a normal man’s.
Personality Traits: Obi is a mute, so Smoke speaks for the two. He is a compulsive eavesdropper and regularly spies on people for no reason other than to observe what they do when they think no one is watching or listening. He sometimes uses this information for playful extortion. Seems to be constantly giddy. Obi is rather indifferent to his partner’s actions and demeanor and considers him to be the “leader” of the duo. Very aloof when it comes to any sort of social interaction, but he is brutal and relentless when it comes to combat. The two are inseparable; Obi allows Smoke to take shelter in the crevices of his armor.
