The Bio

Real Name: Adonis
Villain Name: Adonis
Alignment: Neutral Evil
Age: Unknown, Presumed At least 2,000
Race: Presumed Olympian, possibly artificial. Greek.
Weight:298 lbs

The Looks

The Personality

Adonis is the ultimate narcissist. Everything he does is for the advancement of his image, or his pride. Adonis will absolutely assist a person in need; but it usually requires Adonis looking the best coming out of it. If anyone dares to tarnish this image, Adonis will… hunt them, until either they redact the claims; or one of them is dead. Under the mask Adonis puts on - Hero, friend, and environmentalist - Adonis hides a deep and profound brokenness that betrays his image more than any other being.

The Story

Adonis was born to the goddess Aphrodite. During his childhood he was praised for his feats of strength, by all of the gods except one. Artemis never seemed to like him that well all throughout his childhood. When he reached his teenage years she noticed his superior skill in archery and her dislike for him only grew. One day while he was out hunting with his brand new bow, He remembers his new bow quite clearly as it was a gift from Apollo. Anyway while he was trying to find something to kill, a ginormous  boar came out of nowhere, he honestly doesn't know how he didn’t see it. This boar was taller than the treetops, but naturally he killed the enormous boar. Afterwards though Zeus himself called upon him, apparently the gods had a lot of rewards for him after seeing that magnificent feat, but he had to be put to sleep to be given the gifts. He said yes to this offer of course, and was soon put into a deep slumber.

When Adonis awoke he found that he couldn’t see anything. He tried to move but found that very difficult, so he did the first thing that came to mind, lashed out blindly with his fist. A chunk of a hard substance he had never seen before flew upwards as light came spilling in. It took a moment for his eyes to adjust,but when they did he found himself sitting in a hole with people running and screaming around him. He was in some sort of building, he didn’t know what kind. Somewhat disoriented he stumbled his way toward the exit in front of him, pushing away the screaming annoyances as he went some of whom slammed into walls. He finally made it outside only to find himself surrounded by tall buildings, and these noisy machines moving up and down what looked like a black river. As he reached up to touch his face to make sure he wasn’t dreaming, he found a rough mask on his face. He turned around to find that the building he left looked like it was made out of mirrors. As he stared at his reflection he slowly started to remove the mask. He only had it halfway off when he noticed a horrible blemish on his face, to horrible to even describe. He hurriedly put the mask all of the way back on.

Adonis would go on to become a hero during the late 1990s. Taking over a large company that dedicated itself to cleaning up the oceans and developing environmentally friendly alternatives to plastics, furs, and materials that are generally a problem. Behind the scenes, Adonis had several controversies settled rather...quickly. A rather infamous example being a 2013 case where Adonis was accused of siphoning off funds from his own company to fund his “superhero” career. The scum that dared to accuse Adonis retracted his claim, and would later say “Adonis is the greatest superhero of our age, and we should all recognize that.” And later retiring from the media and the public eye. Adonis meanwhile would continue his heroing career, dipping a bit by early 2016 and disappearing into the business world for a few years, only recently returning to the superheroing career.

The Priority

1. Agility
3. Reaction

The Powers

Herculean Strength: Adonis was gifted the strength of Zeus’ favored son, Heracles. Adonis is strong enough to redirect rivers, lift even the heaviest of buildings, and create thunder with his bare hands. In addition, Adonis can jump over skyscrapers with this ability, being able to reach the top of the empire state building within 48 seconds.

Speed of Hermes: Gifted to Adonis by the god Hermes, Adonis can travel at speeds up to 300 MPH at top speed.

Armor of Hephaestus: This gives him incredible durability, his skin is harder than anything on earth, harder than even diamond.

The gift of Persephone: Gifted to Adonis by the goddess Persephone, Adonis gained an unyielding rage inside. One that he hides well; behind the granite mask… But, should that mask be shattered, removed, or otherwise cracked. Adonis becomes a terrifying abomination against nature. A demonic being so powerful, it cracks the very ground it walks on.


Fist of Ares: He can use magic to focus his strength onto one hand and deliver a devastating shockwave.
Flower of Hypnos: When activated, Adonis produces a sweet smelling cologne which gives people vivid hallucinations; similar to that of a dream.

Asclepius' Instant Cure: Healing bands wrap around Adonis' opponent/ally, binding them and curing them of any ailments or injuries they have. These bands last around 15 minutes, or can be broken by claiming that you don't require healing.(Permission Based)

Tempest of Zeus: Adonis summons storm clouds, he then leaps into the clouds and comes down as a bolt of lightning elsewhere and reforms. This ability works as a teleport, but with a longer transition time.  

Apollo's  Bow - Adonis summons a powerful energy bow that glows with the light from the sun. This weapon does not require any arrows as it creates its own arrows when drawn back.

Kiss of Aphrodite - Adonis gives a target a kiss on the lips, creating an intense bond between the two of them for a period of time. While under the influence of this kiss, the target is paralyzed and cannot move until the connection is broken. (Permission Based)

Harvest of Demeter - Out of the air, Adonis pulls one of 3 seeds.
 • The first seed, if planted in dirt of any amount and watered; will instantly grow into a Thistle.
 • The second seed instantly heals any and all of Adonis’ wounds that he may take during the course of a battle. (Permission based)
 • The third seed explodes with the force of 2 tons of TNT, releasing plant matter, and debris from the shell of the seed. (Permission based).

Nikes Laurel - Adonis calls upon the goddess of Victory, Nike, to assist him and boost his strength, speed, agility, and strategic thinking. To signify this change, Adonis gains glowing golden wings upon his back and a crown of laurels upon his crown. (Adonis is not guaranteed a win from this power; it’s just a buff. In fact, the more battles he loses, the less this spells power.)

Pan’s Song - Adonis sings a song that calls upon the natural world around him. Animals begin disobeying their “master” turning on them, trees uproot themselves to toss apples at whatever Adonis commands, the earth itself rises and tries to swallow anything in its path. The radius of this spell is only as far as Adonis can be heard.


Hammer of Vulcan: Adonis can summon a large hammer created almost entirely of fire, and magma. The hammer is summoned until Adonis either casts it aside, leaves his demon form, or until he no longer needs it.

Armor of Pluto: Adonis can summon an armor made from the souls of those he has slain. The more he kills the more powerful the armor will become.

Apple of Discordia :When used, the apple causes intense waves of chaos in a given area. Usually creating a sense of jealousy or anger in the people that it is used against. If it's more than one person, the spell turns them on each other. (Permission based.)

Bulwark of Mars: Adonis can summon a  earthen castle. This castle will only last for a day at most, or until destroyed. The castle is stocked with full supplies, and is fortified by an army of honored skeletal soldiers from all eras. The size of the army depends on the wars that have occurred there.

Jupiters Wrath: Adonis can cloak himself in electricity. It does not make him more durable, but anyone that Adonis touches will be electrocuted by 1,200 volts. If he is too inraged to leave his demonic form the person he touches will be hit with 50,000 volts. (Permission based)  

Invidia’s Wings - Adonis becomes covered by wings made of pure, vengeful rage. The wings create the sound of thunder when they flap, and scream as he flies. The beast can lift his entire body into the air.He can then call upon the forces of Invidia, goddess of revenge, to destroy his enemy and all who stand in his way. The spirits rip into the opponent and force them to relive the wrongs they have done in their life. The demon, blinded by his vengeful rage will then strike with all of its might towards the nearest thing that it hears; attacking it viciously. (Permission based)(Rage based: Adonis can only use this when so enraged, that he cannot leave his demonic form.)

Storms of Neptune - Adonis summons a massive hurricane, creating tsunamis, earthquakes, gale force winds, hail the size of tennis balls. The storm lasts as long as Adonis yells. (Permission based) (Rage based: Adonis can only use this when so enraged, that he cannot leave his demonic form.)

The Weaknesses

He can only cast a 5 major spells a day or 20 minor spells before depleting his store of magical energy.

He can only travel at top speed for 10 seconds. He can run longer if he goes slower.

Adonis’ magic will not work on anything mechanical like androids or other robots.Also plastic will negate his magic entirely

Adonis has titanium bands on his arms,legs, and back,this limits him from using his full strength. If he tries to use his full strength it could kill him. Additionally, this makes the change from Olympian to Demon very painful for Adonis, making it something he would like to avoid as it takes several more seconds to transform with the bands intact.

Adonis for the most part requires the ability to speak to cast his spells, as in order to use them he must send up a prayer to any and all olympian gods that he wishes to give him power.

Adonis cannot be touched by water from the river styx, as his faux-olympian physiology rejects the substance on contact. When touched by the water, Adonis gets burned and parts of his skin melts back, revealing the clay underneath; making him weaker to physical attacks.

Adonis has a bit of tunnel vision when he gets enrage, meaning that he can literally only see in one direction at a time.

As Adonis is made of clay, he cannot heal naturally and requires more of the same mystic clay that created him to repair wounds. (Or he could use the Harvest of Demeter, but seeing as he can only use 5 major spells everyday; the Harvest would cost him some combat advantages.)

The fist of Ares  will completely exhaust him. He will not be able to use this until he rests for at least a day.

Overuse of the Flower of Hypnos causes the user to suffer hallucinations.

Harvest of Demeter requires the seeds to be planted in some form of soil and watered to work properly.

In addition, the Thistle that grows from the seed is incredibly weak to fire. To the point where it will even begin to wither in harsh sunlight.

The TNT seed works like a mine meaning it will only explode if stepped on.

Nikes Laurel if used to much he will become addicted, and if he continues to use it alot, Adonis could overdose and die.    

Kiss of Aphrodite causes Adonis to fall in love with his target, for a short period of time, making him less likely to hurt them.

The Apple of Discordia causes him to become very disoriented, and stumble around like he is drunk.he cannot cast spells during this time.

The Bulwark of Mars takes 20 minutes to cast. During that time it will slowly rise out of the ground. If Adonis is interrupted during that time the castle will collapse forcing him to start over. Even if the castle collapses it still takes one of his major spell points.

Jupiters Wrath shocks him causing him great pain, and making it harder for him to move due to the muscle spasms.

Invidias wrath will destroy the user if interrupted. Additionally it only has a 30 percent chance of hitting if it misses Adonis will be Knocked out and enter a coma like state for a few days to a few weeks.

Adonis can yell for up to an hour,but it takes at least 30 minutes for the Storm of Neptune to form. If he is interrupted during this time he will lose all spell slots major and minor, and will be forced back into his olympian form.

He will be reduced to the speed, strength, and durability of a normal human. Until he stays in olympus for a t least a week  he will stay in his weakened state.

He will also be put into a coma state for at least a few months. He can only be awakened from the coma with ambrosia from olympus itself.

The Items

Chariot of Apollo:  A flaming chariot that can transform into any vehicle the driver wants. Including space fairing vehicles, and other such specialized vehicles. It only has the durability of the vehicle it is currently transformed into. The vehicle will repair itself of any damages after 24 hours. While damaged it cannot change form.

Mask of Persephone: This is the mask Adonis wears, if taken off he will transform into a demon, if shattered he will be too enraged to leave his demonic form. It takes the force of an atomic bomb to shatter the mask
The Minions

The Fluff

The RP Sample

Adonis waited in an alleyway staring at the monkey faced man who had so rudely interrupted his press conference claiming he had evidence that Adonis was embezzling money from his own company. Preposterous, Adonis had done no such thing! He would need to shut this down quickly. Adonis grabbed the arm of the man as he passed the alleyway. “ We need to have little talk.” Adonis said with much more ferocity than he normally used. Adonis slammed the man against the wall with more force than was strictly necessary, but he thought it necessary  against this scum.”So, might I ask where you put this so called evidence?” Adonis said tightening his grip on the man’s shirt. “Oh god, you’re gonna k-kill me aren’t you? Oh god. I thought you were a hero! OH GOD!” The man stuttered, a wet spot forming on the front of his pants. “The only way I wont kill you is if you do exactly what I say.” Adonis said lifting the man at least a foot off the ground with ease. “Now I want you to destroy whatever evidence you think you have, and I want you to go on TV and make a public apology..” Adonis growled under his breath, smelling the cheap cologne the greasy man wore. “So it’s true then?” Asked the man. Adonis threw the man into the other wall on the other side of the ally, he might have heard a few bones crack. “You will never speak of this meeting, and if you do, or if you don’t do what i said, you will wish I had just killed you today” Adonis watched as the man stumbled up and limped away. Adonis flapped at the air, trying to dispel the spirit of the man’s cologne, before nearly 2 minutes later walking out himself.

Re: Adonis

Post by Shadowoof on February 7th 2018, 2:24 am

Well I mean for starters there's the whole fact that this dude is tied to existing gods and mythology. need to change that of course to state these beings as ether other dimensional beings or just powerful beings claiming to be such? Discussions might be needed.

If were going by the average weight of a house when he says building then that puts it at about 40k-80k tons.

Durability needs a legit defier. Cant just say "Harder than anything on earth" because well, people have made earthly metals that are stronger than diamonds. And Diamonds aren't even the hardest thing on the planet to begin with.

Gift of persephone: needs to be more descriptive on the type of boost it gives.

Flower of Hypnos: needs to be permission based

Tempest of Zeus: needs some sort of range indicator

Harvest of Demeter: Alright, gonna have to explain how he gets the seed, at random? Or choice, because even if you state random, you can choose, so maybe put a limit on that.

Nikes Laurel: needs to explain how much of a buff he gets
and how much it decreases by when he loses.

Pan’s Song: This is gonna need a smaller radius, and be permission based for character animals. otherwise, nay, no go.

Armor of Pluto: It would need some sort of description for how strong the armor is and how buffed it gets from kills. Because you could just keep killing ordinary npcs and keep boosting it.

Apple of Discordia :When used, the apple causes intense waves of chaos in a given area. How big is the area of effect?

Bulwark of Mars: Might need Permission from everyone in the thread, not sure.

Your items need weaknesses.

Your spells will also need to be seperated into major and minor, I do not know which is even which.

Your weaknesses are gonna need some changes, with minutes turned into post limits. As thirty minutes to cast something, you'd never be able to cast it.

But yea, edit the powers that need changing, weaknesses, then we'll continue from there.

The characters that my mind decided up because of various reasons easily gotten to for all of you people who like being lazy.

Characters of the wolf:
