No, no, Lawboy's has
to be "It's JUSTICE time!"
So, hm. I've been watching this project since near its inception- I even considered submitting my OC at one point, but the thread had pretty much died down then. But since I forgot about this awhile back and it seems much more lively around here now, why the heck not?
...Besides the fact that it'd only be a cameo. But anyway! NOTE: I tend to ramble. You have been warned- don't complain if you suffer from tl;dr.
Real Name: Ben L.
Relatives: None of relevance.
Eyes: Green, almost gray
Hair: Short, thick, brown
Personality: Thoughtful, extremely non-aggressive. Will not start a fight unless forced.
Affiliations: None in particular. He's made sure to let COURT (and any heroes he bumps into) know he's on their side, though. (Basically, he's an ally rather than a member of COURT, since he's really not in the area a lot at this point.)
Abilities: Ranges. He is able to jump between alternate universes, and his powers manifest slightly differently in each one. Usually, he would be able to take on the element of whatever weapon he's wielding and gain some elemental attacks, but in this superpower-focused universe, that seems to have been replaced with the ability to neutralize superpowers directed against him so he can fight the users on his own terms. For that, he has some knowledge of swordplay that he learned from the previous Warden of Terra. [Note that his power only applies to "super" abilities- not "natural" abilities like mad ninja skillz.]
Weapons: Terran Blade, a sword infused with the element of light and handed down by the Wardens of Terra. [Both names are subject to change- I've had this character for ages and I only made those up right now. >_< ]
Background: The Wardens of Terra have existed back beyond recorded history. They all hail from Earth, and each possesses the ability to jump between alternate universes- the "Gift", as some call it. Their duty is to protect their home universe (Earth) by preventing evil in alternate universes from growing powerful enough to threaten it. [i.e. timespace-bending villains] Their Gift also helps out with this by allowing them to be aware of such threats- though in a very vague sense, as they don't know the specifics of when or where, just which alternate universe they need to be in. There is only one Warden at a time, and that person remains the Warden until he finds another Gifted individual and passes the duty on to him or falls in battle. The next Warden in line is usually his son or daughter, but sometimes that's not the case- for example, the last Warden married an offworlder woman (and, incidentally, fathered Mario and Luigi, who are heroes in their own right, but that's another story.) In these cases, a descendant of a long-dormant Warden bloodline will awaken and eventually become the next Warden. Regarding the Terran Blade, it holds the role of a sort of "initiation trial" for new Wardens- whether they have to earn the sword from the current owner or recover the blade after a Warden falls in battle, they are not truly the next Warden yet until they obtain the Terran Blade.
So what is he doing here, anyway?: Long story short, he sensed the events from Aeon's future (though he doesn't know that much, of course, just the general threat) and came to Lawyerman's universe to find out what was going on and how to end the threat to his home universe.
