SPLITTER (note: entry prepared by Gina)
You see a tallish boy with bright orange skin and mismatched limbs.
Looking at him from the top down, his head is covered by a metallic purple
helmet, sporting a small fin top and center. A cheerful look is on his
orange humanoid features, and his orange ears stick out slightly from the
sides of his helmet. He’s wearing a metallic purple tank top and shorts,
which is formfitting and extends to his upper thighs. From the end of the
shorts to his feet, his coloring vaguely resembles that of a girraffe. His
arms change tone from bright orange to a scaly yellow right below his
shoulders. His feet are bare.
Floyd Belkin: You see a cheerful lad with a bright orange face and a
blond, wavy fro. He’s wearing a pair of tight-ish jeans, reeboks, and a
big T-shirt proclaiming ‘I Survived the ShadowyPlot and All I Got Was This
Stupid T-Shirt’. Underneath the t-shirt he’s wearing a white cotton
longsleeved ‘long johns’ shirt, which covers his arms up to the wrists.
His hands are oddly scaly, and quite yellow.
Affiliiation: Legion of Substitute Heroes, Heroes of Lallor (30th Century)
Background: A native mutant of the mutant-hating world of Lallor, Floyd
Belkin grew up in hiding, reared by sympathetic sympathizers,
aneristic-yet-not-hopeless anarchists, erisian escapists, and motherly
mutants. His friends were all weirdos, like him…Duplicate Boy and Gas
Girl are two examples of other Lallorian mutant-heroes. All his life, he
lived with the fact that he wasn’t -like- everyone else…marked by his
orange skin and detachable limbs. Finally, his chance for escape arrived.
With tears of farewell from his mutant friends and surrogate families,
Floyd stowed away on a freigher headed for Earth. As soon as he arrived,
he knew this was the place for him - there were so many mutants and
metahumans, and the diversity was so amazingly beautiful! Upon his
entrance into Terran society, he succeeded in joining the amazing Legion
of Substitute Heroes, and is currently being taught to lose his limbs with
a purpose…to manifest this power as the focused totality of his
long-opressed yet glorious mutant abilities!
Powers: Floyd’s limbs - that is, ARMS and LEGS only (that’s what limbs
are, not digits like fingers and toes:)) detach right below the shoulder
and right below the torso. They fall off at will, but also (sometimes)
Skills: Very good at lying on the ground, helpless…can club people with
various limbs, provided he still has an arm or so attached…um, he can
make his limbs fall off in strategic places, so villains trip over
Special Abilities: You can chop at Splitter with a sword or something,
and if you get him in exactly the right places at the exactly correct
angles, you won’t hurt him and his limbs will detach just like they
normally do. If he’s having a sword swung at him, though, he’s probably
already fallen all to pieces from panic. If you get him with a sword or
whatever in any other places, though, you’ll hurt him pretty badly and the
only way he can fight you is by bleeding on you.
Flaws: No mental flaws, except maybe scarring from the years of trauma
and angst on the mutant-hating world of Lallor.
Disadvantages: Floyd’s power is rather useless. I mean, his arms and legs
come off, right? Then what? Nothing! End of story. He lies there looking
helpless, while his arms and legs are just kind of lying there doing
nothing. The other Subs always have to rescue him…
Personality: Floyd is a very cheerful guy, considering his unhappy
origin. However, his current status with the Legion Subs provide him
with just the right environment to flourish.
