The Swagman

"It's Nothing Personal, Just My Job."

The Bio

Real Name:  John "Johnny" Goodman
Villain Name: Swagman
Title:  "The Boogieman of the Gangitanos"
Alignment:  Lawful Evil
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Race: Caucasian
Hair:Dark, dark brown
Eyes: Green
Height: 6'
Weight: 220 lbs
Blood type: O-

The Looks

Dress is dependent on job. May wear skin-tight black if trying to be stealthy. When casual, he will dress-up like picture.

The Personality

Swagman believes in doing what is best for the family. Before friends, before blood-related family, before himself even, is the Mafia. There is literally nothing that stands between his devotion to his 'family '(led by Don Gangitano). His beliefs are odd, as he doesn't feel any connection to the individual members of the gang, rather their operations as a whole. He looks for their best business decisions. If that means killing a member who's taking more than his cut to pay for their child's surgery, so-be-it. Shouldn't have crossed the mob.

When his devotion isn't ruining his social life, he's actually a decently friendly guy. He's the man at the bar who will strike up conversation with anyone, just to have it. Aside from what he was taught once (network to everyone), he doesn't have any ulterior motives. He's a decent human being outside of his work. The problem is, his work interferes with most of his daily life. Even if he's not doing a 'job', he will always be on the lookout for connections and tools that could be useful.

When it comes to his beliefs on fighting, he will always try being smart about it. In a world filled with metas, it's NOT smart for a normal man to run in, guns blazing. However, if there are no other options, he will gladly charge into a fight. Any time he can use his weapons and/or mess someone up, he will. This does not mean he picks fights, however if someone picks one with him he WILL respond.

Being forced to fight for rankings in the mafia with metas, he's grown a bias towards them. As soon as he meets one, he hates them until they prove themselves as good people. In fact, most of his fighting is geared towards identifying a meta's powers and learning how to fight it. "The Boogieman of the Gangitanos" will almost always take a job that requires killing or injuring a meta.

In fights, Swagman will aim to cripple opponents. Whether this is a knife to the leg before the fight starts, or shooting at the most used part of the body on the foe, he always tries to weaken before he kills (unless his job is to directly assassinate, in which case he changes his fighting style to go for critical points). Some of this method is to torture mob members who escaped and it just stuck, though at other times it has proven to be useful to gain information.

Swagman's goals are simple. He wants to make the Gangitanos grow, and maybe one day even be in charge of the operation.

The Story

Johnny Goodman was born to Australian Immigrants who did their best to provide for him, but couldn't. Being financially unable to provide for a family of three, they turned to less legal means to make extra money. Johnny's father became a low-ranked enforcer in the Gangatino mob. While organized crime wasn't at the height it once was, the organized crime gang was making a return in New York, and Johnny's father was responsible for extorting businesses and making sure they paid bi-weekly for protection. While his father was away, Johnny and his mother became very familiar with the higher-ups at the gang. His mother understood it was a means to make money. Johnny saw these larger than life gangsters as role models. They were crooked, but organized. Classy, but tough. The gang treated Johnny well, too. The big, bad enforcers who broke bones were fantastic with kids, and Johnny grew up in admiration.

When he was 16, he got in with the Gangatinos. His parents, especially his father, begged him not to. He disobeyed them, and joined anyway. Within a year, he had risen above his father, and had gotten into more dangerous stuff. He was a top ranking henchman for quite some time, until the Don found out about the reputation he had gathered. What started as a joke aimed at his parents had become the last name a victim would hear before their death. "The Swagman". After this, he was pushed to a much higher status, to where he has gained a good bit of respect in the gang he worked for. He wasn't nearly at the top, but now had choice in the jobs he did, and he wasn't just someone who guarded arms deals or bullied businesses. He was a killer, a high-end burglar, and many more. He was the Swagman.

The Priority

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

The Powers

  • Regeneration: Despite having a bias towards Metas, he is actually one himself. His power is nigh undetectable to himself, though. Being born with a mutation, he heals from injuries slightly faster than the normal human. While this isn't enough to make limbs grow back in a few days, or even stop a major wound from impacting his fighting, he still gets back to normal shape quicker than most. Rather than months, broken bones and major flesh wounds will heal in weeks. Small cuts will scab up almost instantly. These are just some examples of what his regeneration does. It's not fantastic, but it does help as someone who gets cut up and stabbed quite a bit. His body also fights off natural infection, meaning that while poisons will still work, his cuts that he doesn't tend to will never get infected, and he fights off most common diseases and sicknesses.
  • In-Depth Training: Since the age of 14, Johnny has been training his body for the mafia, and he's been working for the Gangatinos since age 16. With this has come training from a few ex-military, as well as a few dojos and gyms. This training gives him experienc e and knowledge in a few fighting styles (more specifically Boxing, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Judo, and introductory MMA), most typical guns (especially Sniper Rifles and handguns), and very advanced knife techniques. Overall, he's a very skilled fighter, and while not any 'powers', it is at above-human levels. This also includes misc. skills, such as extreme car driving, auto theft, interrogation, and baking.

The Weaknesses

  • Addiction: Goodman is an alcoholic. His tolerance (possibly due to his mutant genetics) is high, and thus he isn't always slurring his words or stumbling around like a fool, however if he goes too far without alcohol, he starts to experience severe withdrawal symptoms.
  • Devotion: Goodman has a full-out devotion to his gang. That means even if it means endangering his own life, he will do whatever needs done to complete the job and benefit the mission. This oftentimes will get him in trouble with others, though at times it CAN put himself in danger. If something needs done but he would be walking right into a near-death situation, he will still do it.
  • Reputation: While able to physically stay undetected (as only stories of the Swagman's appearance have gone around), in any area once word that The Swagman is there, people will freak out and start a hunt, causing people to go on full-alarm.
  • Affiliation: Due to being a member of the Gangatinos, and a proud one, he can easily create an enemy in an authority figure or an opposing gang/cartel/mob.

The Items

  • A beat-down Volkswagen Van that holds his near-military collection of guns, and at times his motorcycle.
  • Ducati Panigale 1199 R. His trusty black bike that can get up to 195 mph.
  • On his person, always two CZ75 fully automatic pistols, as well as a pocket knife, four throwing knives, and his trusty Smith & Wesson .500. He keeps these hidden actually pretty well, whether at his sides, hidden in his suit, or even strapped to his arms/legs.
  • IN HIS VAN: Four sniper rifles, six pistols, three shotguns, twelve knives, five different outfits for different occasions,
