Owl-Cat Empty Owl-Cat

Post by Joseph Pokakaa on August 12th 2018, 7:45 pm


"The Night Hunter"

The Bio

Real Name: Joseph Garnet
Hero Name: Owl-Cat
Title: The Night Hunter
Alignment: True Neutral
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Race: Mixed descent
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 200 lbs.
Blood type: O-

The Looks

Joseph Garnet is a tall and lean young man with warm, brown skin. He is 6 feet and 3 inches tall, built like a decathlete, and is 200 pounds. He is muscular with short muscle bellies. He is tall and lanky with big hands and feet. He is broad shouldered against his narrow waist. Despite the large size of his feet, he steps relatively lightly and quietly even without his powers. Various parts of his skin, especially on his back, have faded stretch marks suggesting his physical growth was uneven. Garnet's body fat only makes up 10% of his weight.

Joseph has a longer oval-shaped face with a long neck. He has semi-wavy, semi-wiry black hair that he keeps in an even length. He typically clean shaven and has very sparse, thin body hair. He often times wears patchy stubble as he shaves sparingly. His eyebrows are arched and prominent. Although he used to wear glasses, they were made obsolete by his powers. His eyes are dark brown color and slightly down-turned shape. When utilizing his powers, his irises can turn yellow like a cat. He has a large, round nose that contrasts with his prominent cheek bones. His chin is slightly shallow, complemented by his gently rounded jaw. His lips are very angular and pointed, defined and strong.

The Personality

Joseph is very jovial and talkative when he wants to be, quick-witted, funny, and charming. Also, he is honest and straight forward as well as objective. However, he is very withdrawn and private, which is ironic considering he delights in deep connections with others. It is not to say that he is particularly bad at connecting with others, however he lacks a good deal of interest concerning the matter. Unfortunately, this has led to disappointing traits, occasionally like insensitivity, condescension, an ignorance of authority, and most notably self-doubt. In a setting that rarely poses an intellectual challenge to Joseph, his most natural and dangerous enemy is himself. He often spends many lonesome nights in distracting contemplation over what could have been as well as many unfinished thoughts, slowing his progress as a person.

Intellectually speaking, Joseph is very logically precise, and naturally excels at putting pieces together with excellent analyzing abilities and amazing abstract thinking. His abstract way of thinking and mental connecting abilities lead to a certain open-mindedness and sense of imagination, which lends to originality. When completely focused, there is rarely a mental task too hard for Joe, making for a very quick learner. However, one would be very hard-pressed to get Joseph completely focused against his own accord, as his mind is made to wander in his abstract way of thinking. Notably, Joseph is only ever completely focused when the subject matter greatly interests him. Even minor interests get more of a pass, but they are never focused on for long. His emotional intelligence leaves a little to be desired. While structurally sound logically, his emotions are hot and rarely easy for him to shift through and communicate. In matters entirely steeped in emotion, he is very inept, often trying to find a logical way to cope. He almost always tempers his emotions with logic when he can as he can be easier to manipulate emotionally, and it is a difficult aspect for him to control normally, usually forcing him to shut his emotions down. Using the identity of The Owl-Cat has given Joseph the ability to compartmentalize his personality somewhat.

The Story

Joseph grew up in the USA as an ethnically mixed child. His parents divorced when he was 5. After, he lived with his mother while his father lived out of state. As a young boy, he excelled in mathematics and English, serving him well through his education. He also greatly enjoyed fighting as a hobby. Through his childhood he had difficulty forming relationships due to constantly moving around. Despite this, Joseph still made strides towards relationships from time to time. He adopted a dog named Dexter that would be one of his closest companions. Romantic relationships never worked out, usually ending in misery. After the hospitalization of his final love interest after Joseph saved them suicide, Joseph decided to suspend his love life indefinitely. At the same time he had ended some of the closest friendships he had in his life, viewing them all as increasing more dysfunctional or meaningless. He spent almost all of his time either at work or at home and rarely socializing.

Feeling inspired by athletic ambitions, he decided to attempt a career out of his hobby of boxing. He learned quickly, and even had the luck of being trained by an old Olympic boxer from the golden years of the sport. The two became friends with Joseph idolizing him for his strength despite his age. Eventually his trainer moved to another country, and Joseph never saw or heard from him again. Joseph felt lost, questioning whether his trainer ever actually believed in him in the first place. He began to spiral into depression. He and his mother eventually had a major falling out over the death of his dog. Joseph dropped out of college and began hiking across the country.

Joseph continued his training as a boxer, traveling to every boxing gym while he was in town. Joining amateur boxing tournaments, Joseph soon rose to the top where he competed in the United States national tournament. Wining second place, Joseph was expected by many in the boxing community to become a professional boxer. Then he disappeared, no longer showing interest in fighting as a boxer, and began taking up multiple other hobbies. He trained in multiple Olympic sports and learned several different disciplines, even multiple languages. However, Joseph remained discontent with his life.

The Priority

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

The Powers

Morteception: Joseph has an ability to sense death, called "morteception." This allows him to perceive the manner, location, timing of his death, the death of others, and the dying. His death sense is usually restricted to his general vicinity, growing stronger with spatial or chronological proximity, the number of deaths/potential deaths, or familiarity with the dying. He can also perceive the past deaths of others by touching objects or areas related to their death such as the spot that a person died on or the weapon that killed them.

Enhanced Senses: Joseph's has gained the supreme sight and hearing. He can view objects both microscopically and telescopically and has perfect vision in total darkness. He can also process visual information at such an accelerated rate, he can view events in time with the speed of light. His retinas are right side up, removing the blind spot that humans normally have. His hearing extends into sub-radio frequencies. He can use his enhanced hearing to track the source of a sound and filter out ambient noise. His other senses and instincts are also enhanced, but to the level of actual cats and owls as opposed to supernatural levels like his hearing and sight.

  • 360 Degree Vision: Joseph, through partially metaphysical vision, can see in all directions at once.
  • Electromagnetic Vision: Joseph's color range has been expanded to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. As such he can visually process extremely low frequency sound waves all the way to gamma radiation.
  • Illusion Awareness: Owl-Cat remains aware at all times of the true reality around him, seeing through optical and mental illusions, invisibility, and even when people are lying.
  • X-Ray Vision: Joseph can see through objects.

Enhanced Stealth: Joseph has the ability to camouflage himself by changing the pattern and colors of his body. He can also become completely inaudible, choose who can hear the sounds he directly makes, and cancel out the inaudibility of others.

Enhanced Speed and Agility: Joseph has speed, agility, balance, and flexibility far beyond normal human ability. He can outperform any human Olympic gymnast, acrobat, or contortionist. He can run and move almost four times faster than the fastest human beings.

Enhanced Strength: Joseph is strong enough to lift a full ton over his head.

Enhanced Durability: Joseph's body is resistant to damage like blunt forces, falling, being hit by objects or vehicles, and other non-lethal forms of incapacitating a human. Being hit by a car traveling at 90 miles per hour was only enough to temporarily incapacitate him without injury. He was also able to free fall 5 stories without any injury whatsoever.

Slow Descent: While wearing his suit, Joseph can control the speed of his descent while falling, allowing him to always fall safely. He can also slow his descent while holding heavy objects to some extent.

The Weaknesses

Soulless Beings: Joseph's death sense does not work on beings with no soul, like robots.

Dense Material: Joseph cannot see through materials that can block x-ray light.

Auditory Illusions: Joseph's illusion awareness does not affect auditory illusions.

Indirect Noise: Joseph cannot mask the noise of sounds he makes indirectly, like a broom he knocks over that hits the ground, or a gun he fires.

Infrared: Joseph can still be viewed by his heat signature in infrared view.

Hang Time: Utilizing his ability to slow his descent makes him even more vulnerable to attack while in air.

Light: Joseph's camouflage effectiveness is decreased by the shadows cast by direct light.

Weight: Joseph's ability to slow his own descent does not work if he is holding more than 3x his own body weight.

Lethal damage: Joseph's enhanced durability does not extend to lethal forms of damage like internal injuries from being shot or stabbed or lethal forms of electricity, fire, etc.

Swimming: Joseph cannot swim.

Conditional Power: Joseph's ability to slow his descent only works while his suit is in its true form.

The Items

The Owl-Cat suit is actually a supernatural, sentient extension of his powers. It is capable of shape shifting into any shape or form, and can camouflage itself just like he can. When summoned in its true form, it can control the speed of Joseph's descent while falling, allowing him to always fall safely. It can also slow his descent while holding heavy objects to some extent, though greatly weakened under extremes. Utilizing its shape shifting abilities, it can turn its cape into makeshift wings that allow Owl-Cat to glide through the air in combination with its ability to slow descent. It is far more durable than it appears, capable of protecting him from many conventional weapons like small caliber bullets, knives, and is incombustible, but it is not invulnerable. Though it is sentient,

Joseph also carries a belt with a small pouch in the front and a larger pouch in the back that houses a lock pick and a small first aid kit.

The Minions


The Fluff

Owl-Cat is a master combatant trained in both mixed martial arts and stick fighting. Before gaining his powers, Garnet was privately tutored in both boxing and martial arts. He was capable of fighting multiple unarmed opponents, even before gaining his powers. His fighting abilities are sharpened tremendously by his powers, especially the eyes of the owl.

Joseph is very athletic with high proficiency in athletics, weightlifting, gymnastics, and acrobatics.

The RP Sample

Owl-Cat released his grip on the last guard's collar and the guard fell to the floor with an audible thud. Owl-Cat raised his hood back over his head, which had fallen off during the fight. As he did so, he looked around the room at the seven men he just dispatched. They all spoke perfect English, but their eyes were an intense shade of dark purple and their skin not far off from orange. They proved to be much stronger than any other thugs Owl-Cat had faced, and they appeared to be highly trained Owl-Cat had a good bit of trouble dealing with them and their armaments. Regardless, Owl-Cat ventured onto the elevator. He was on the 25th floor of this nearly 40 story building. From what he understood, whoever was behind this vicious take over was in the penthouse on the top floor. Joseph pressed the button in the glass elevator, pensive in his curiosity.

Who the hell could have just waltzed in here and killed Don Macchio in his own penthouse, Owl-Cat takes a moment to think to himself as the horizon sinks in the distance, just outside the window.

Don Macchio was a powerful crime boss who controlled a sizable chunk of the crime rackets in Detroit. He was said to have signed over everything he owned to one person, and then mysteriously vanished. Owl-Cat already investigated, and Don Macchio was definitely not the one on that flight back to Italy. He was already dead. The elevator dinged after reaching the penthouse floor. The doors opened slowly to an obviously redecorated living room. There was no longer furniture, and the carpet was replaced with tiles of a marble like quality. It was also almost all white now. In the center of the room, with a red carpet path from beginning to end, was a large white throne.

Seated in the throne was a rather voluptuous woman: pale skin with just the slightest hint of green, and eyes like emerald. Her hair was the darkest shade of black Joseph had ever seen, flowing and voluminous. She wore a black cape with a tall collar and a suit of some kind of armor, not of this planet. Silent, she stood up as Joseph walked out of the elevator and onto the long carpet pathway. Now, Joseph was able to see her entire figure, muscular and curvy, and she was inch shy of Joseph's 6'3" height. He continued to step forward before he fell in love.

"You... what is your name," the imposing woman called out to him.
"Owl-Cat," Joseph responded, still walking forward.
"I have no reverence of your planet's animals, another name," her tone was less patient, with her hands on her hips
"Joseph, then."
"Joseph," she repeated his name, her expression hinting she expected more.
Joseph thought for a moment, her English was perfect, but it was clear she wasn't human, "What do I call 'The Dark Queen.'"
Her head lowered and she raised an eyebrow, "'The Dark Queen...' I like that, continue to call me that."
Joseph nodded from behind his mask, polite as usual, "Why did you kill Don Macchio and take his penthouse."
"Was that his name? I honestly didn't care, I just picked this place because of the view. An excellent place for military operations," Queen looked about her home with a satisfied expression before returning her gaze to Joseph.
"Military operations?"
"You heard what I said the first time, I can tell."
Joseph was not amused at his super hearing be obvious to the Queen.
"I intend to house part of army in this penthouse as this will be the next spot for our energy operations. A sizable chunk of this city's architecture will need to be removed."
"I don't like that suggestion."
"Tough, because it was not a suggestion," The Dark Queen glared menacingly at Joseph, her eyes glowing malicious green, "But..."
Joseph turned his head ever so slightly to the side.
"You bested my royal guards, a many of them at once."
Joseph's head tilted to the other side abruptly at her grammatical failure. His evidence led him to believe her knowledge of the English language would be perfect.
The Queen noticed immediately, "Come to me a moment, you will not be harmed."

The eyes of the young vigilante narrowed behind his mask. Still, he stepped forward, down the carpet, and up the several steps until he was just a few steps away. The Dark Queen slithered forward in kind, like an anaconda, closing the distance to a matter of inches. Her long flowing hair was almost intimidating at this point, and her eyes were staring right through the mask.

"Raise your  mask some."

Slowly, Joseph raised the owl-faced mask he wore up on his face until his nose lips were revealed. The Queen reached out with her left hand, gloved in black velvet, stopping Joseph from raising his mask further. She lowered his hand in a deliberate fashion, her other hand reaching up slowly. Joseph watched both hands simultaneously; his x-ray vision revealing she was completely unarmed and gorgeous. Her right hand griped the back of his head, hood and all, and pulled his face toward hers rapidly. Their lips met, with Joseph stunned, unable to resist her. A moment passed and she released him from her lips, released his grip on the back of his head, and lowered his mask in place as a courtesy. She walked backwards until she was at least two meters away from the man she locked lips with. Joseph adjusted his mask to a comfortable measure.

"You are an educated man, Joseph," her eyes searched Joseph for weakness, "Highest vocabulary I've assimilated yet."
Joseph's chin tilted back an inch as he realized the meaning of her strange intimacy.
"I will leave you planet if you can defeat me twice."
"I only need to defeat you once."
"That... is what you think."

Slowly, the Dark Queen raised her hands up as they glowed an intense green, energy pulsing and forming spheres of energy around her hands. Joseph dropped into a cautiously lower stance at the sight...

Now a lot of this looks good, weaknesses are alright. Over extension could be detailed a bit more, but the main problem I have, is his enhanced senses. Reading that, I could see up to 7-8 separate types of vision like powers. And that is not even including his other senses being increased, such as hearing and smell.

His sight powers are also not attached to his physical eyes as he can see in 360 degrees and lacks a blind spot. He also has metaphysical sight abilities such as his ability to see the auras of others, which are invisible fields of energy surrounding every living being. Aura reading gives him the ability to perceive others' health, emotions, morality, powers and strength levels, and even if they are lying.

Most of this is what I am getting at and i know it isn't everything. empathy reading though auras, the powers thing is a permission based power and ability to see invisible people. I'd like it if you could separate some of these eye powers out a bit and add weaknesses to account for the amount of powers that come out of that. you have five already, so shouldn't be too bad. thank you! good character overall.

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

I meant that he could see their power level relative to his, not their powers. However, I removed aura vision anyway, so it doesn't matter. Also made a lot more changes.
