Mateo Barros

Post by Maester1216 on June 6th 2017, 2:47 am


The Machinist

"What is a human being, then? An acorn that is unafraid to destroy itself in growing into a tree."

The Bio

Real Name: Mateo Barros
Renegade Name: The Machinist
Title: The New Millennial
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Race: Hispanic (Mexican-American)
Hair: Black
Eyes: Pale Blue
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 180 lbs
Blood type: AB

The Looks

The Personality

An individualist first and last, Mateo follows his whims and ideals. For most people he comes off as a charming and capricious rogue as he flits in and out of peoples lives. Sarcasm and witticism with an insult or two are his preferred verbal weapons of choice, and he exudes a perpetual air of self-confidence that comes off as arrogance to some people. He also has no qualms taking risks most people wouldn't dream of in a given situation; never tell him the odds, because he simply can't resist taking a big risk for a potentially bigger payoff not unlike a gambler. His machine-like mind has him disassembling and reassembling machinery to understand how it works, and he tends to act that way around people and ideas as well. He loves finding out what makes people and things tick. He tends to judge people by their actions rather than their words, but at the end of the day he'd sincerely rather make a new friend instead of an enemy.

To those closest to Mateo or who he warms up to he's as passionate and loyal as they come. He always tries to instill confidence in others like he has and maintains a very "live and let live" mindset with people. Where his real passion lies however is both the ever-accelerating growth of technology and people as well standing in defiance of the tyrannical forces that would stymie them. He's thoroughly anti-authority and will throw in with whichever party stands in defiance of the powers that be, provided they don't cross any lines he himself wouldn't. He pursues freedom for all out of a belief that people should be able to lead their own lives, but only feels a strong predilection for protecting those he truly cares about; everyone else can rot for all he cares. He doesn't justify or obfuscate this point however, and has no pretences of what he is or does. In that freedom he's determined to make something of himself and prove he's the greatest technopath on the planet.

The Story

Growing up in Anaheim, California to a working poor family didn't give Mateo Barros near as many opportunities as other kids.

The Priority

1. Agility 1
2. Endurance 4
3. Reaction 2
4. Strength 3

The Powers

Cyberkinesis: Mateo is able to manipulate electronic machines and computers. He can alter data in computers and similar equipment, control any machine with electronic parts, insert false information into sensors, security systems or communication devices, overload electronic machines, and reprogram computers or similar electronic devices. Most interestingly he can actually send his consciousness through a computer network, allowing him to affect a distant computer in what he calls "Psychic Hacking." He can affect machines up to a range of 200 meters and can psychically hack a network up to an even greater range.

The Weaknesses

Normalcy: Baring his powers and training Mateo is still very much a human, and can die just as easily as one. In a straight-up fight with a combative meta-human he has very low chances of victory.

Limitations: Mateo's Cyberkinesis can only affect machines with electronic components, meaning certain technologies as well as low-tech or no-tech equipment is beyond his control. Furthermore the nature of his psychic hacking requires both absolute concentration and time to take effect; disrupting him can have disastrous consequences and the time to access a computer increase with distance. A computer on the same network would take 3 posts, the same city would take one minute, the same continent would take ten minutes and across continents would take one hour. Each step requires more focus as well.

Reckless: Mateo is a reckless glory-hound with a penchant for anti-authoritarianism. He despises taking orders and will without fail throw most plans out the window if he cares to make one. He'd sooner go off his gut and natural know-how to deal with a situation, which can leave him in dangerous situations or even compromise a mission.

Easily Smitten: Mateo can't resist a pretty face and considers himself a ladies-man without peer. He can be easily swayed or manipulated by one for good or ill.

Family: Mateo still maintains ties with his family but works to keep those ties hidden. Anyone who uncovers those ties has a very strong bargaining chip to bring Mateo to heel and place him under their command, but will earn his ire and hatred for the rest of time.

Specialization: Should Mateo's gadgets and technical equipment be disabled or destroyed he would be at a severe disadvantage, being as reliant on such equipment to the detriment of his baseline skills that don't relate to tech. Though combat-trained he simply cannot last long in a fight in comparison to other trained warriors.

The Items

The Minions

The Fluff

Keen-Edged Intellect: Mateo is an exceptionally brilliant man with a recorded IQ of 180. Though he exhibits no mental powers beyond his cyberkinesis he has a broad range of knowledge, from politics and the humanities to a more focused study of technology and the sciences.

Subterfuge: Mateo's time as a thief and conman have helped hone both his capacity for manipulation as well as stealth. Aided by his technology and powers he has the potential to be virtual undetectable to security systems, and he can lie his way out of most other situations.

Agility: He's more dextrous and agile than the average human, and well trained in movement skills like parkour.

Tech-Head: even without his cyberkinetic powers Mateo is still a master with technology and computers. He can hack most any system(made easier with his power) and is in theory limited only by his imagination in terms of tech he can create.

Combat: Mateo is trained in the usage of light arms like shotguns, submachine guns and pistols. He also is trained in Muay Thai for physical confrontations.

If this is your first character, we require an RP sample.

Otherwise this looks fine.
