Shǔ (NPC) Empty Shǔ (NPC)

Brother Rat

Basic Biography

Real Name: Xu Jian
Renegade/Hero/Villain Name: Shǔ/The Rat
Title: Brother Rat
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Age: 55
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown
Height: 5’4
Weight: 90 lbs
Blood type: B-

The Looks

In his youth Xu Jian would have been described as a handsome man. He sported a chiseled jawline and flashed a smile that could make any woman (and some men) faint. His hair was thick and black and his olive skin had not a single blemish. However the fates were cruel and when his metagene triggered, his body began to slowly deteriorate. First went his legs, but slowly he became a prisoner in his own body. Now he is a frail man who is unable to move any part of his body save for his eyes. His once handsome face has now become gaunt and his full lips have all but shriveled away.   He is now usually seen in a mechanical wheel chair that allows him some limited movement and a mechanical voice box which is controlled via a chip that has been implanted in his brain.

The Legacy

Perhaps The Rat’s disability makes him seem somber, or possibly Xu Jian is ashamed of what he has become. But those who know The Rat knows that one should not take his silence for apathy or weakness. The Rat is always flexing the one muscle in his body that is still completely under his control, his brain. He constantly access the thralls that have fallen under his power to view the battlefield from different perspectives to create the most brutally efficient plan. And though few have seen him, his reputation for ruthlessness is well known by his subordinates and his brothers in arms. More importantly, The Rat is known to throw innocents into harm’s way in order to secure an escape for himself and his important personnel.  

Though he is rarely known as Xu Jian anymore, that was The Rat’s birthname. He was born to a good family with a good name. He was handsome, intelligent, and overall loved by anyone who met him. His life seemed perfect…until his family business began to fail. As business began to slow down and then stop altogether, Xu Jian was unable to pay his workers and threats of death and lawsuits began to pile up.
Overcome with stress, Xu Jian confronted the leader of his worker’s union to attempt to compromise. However the confrontation soon became physical and Xu Jian’s metagene triggered. He discovered that at a touch he could turn any human who was not a metahuman into a willing thrall.  

Using his newfound powers, Xu Jian turned his workers into slaves, working to not only save the company but increase profit margins. However he soon realized that his powers had come with a high price. The drain of maintaining so many minds at once had left his brain unable to manage the rest of his body, thus leading to the degradation of his physical form.  His sordid practice was eventually uncovered by investigative journalists and he was forced to flee his business and his home.

In his flight Xu Jian would often leave massive body counts behind as he uses his powers to bring innocents to fight to the death to cover their master's escape.  However his savagery only caused the Chinese government to pursue him ever more, that was until Xu Jian abandoned his old life and embraced his metahuman identity. No longer did the metahuman inhabit the large mansions and five star hotels that he believed was his right but descended into the seedy underworld of villains.

Decades later, a villain by the name of Shǔ who matched the description of Xu Jian emerged from the criminal underworld. But now he had amassed a large fortune and was backed by eleven other metahumans who called themselves The Twelve.  It is not clear what it is exactly Shǔ is after, but one thing is for certain- the Twelve is a force to be reckoned with.

The Powers and Weaknesses

(All characters can be as powerful as they want, as long as they are balanced with proper weaknesses.)

Power 1: Upon a single touch, The Rat is able to compel any human without a metahuman gene to act on his telepathic commands. The Rat is able to compel up to fifty individuals at once up to a duration of two days.

Power 2: Is able to project his own mind into that of one of his thralls, seeing and experiencing everything that his thrall does.

Weakness 1: The Rat is completely paralyzed save for his eyes, and will lose to even the weakest of humans in hand to hand combat.  

Weakness 2: The Rat’s power requires him to touch the skin of another human. Being that he literally can’t move his own body this is difficult without some assistance.

Weakness 3: Rat is being kept alive by a series of intricate machines within his body that helps his organs function. If harm were to ever come to these devices then he would surely die or retreat from the fight to be repaired.

Weakness 4: Subconsciously, Xu Jian hates what he has become. Any reminder to the life that he once had, even his old name, is sure to incite fierce emotions and cause the Rat to act rashly.

RP Mechanic(s):
-Requires player permission for powers to work.
-Leader of a large crime organization.
-Has accumulated a small fortune
