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. His body is tall and long with big hands and feet. He is broad shouldered against his narrow waist, giving him a more masculine appearance when his body shape is more apparent. 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 sports a long, oblong-shaped face, which accentuates his long neck. He has semi-curly, semi-wiry black hair that he keeps in a crew cut, lessening his broad cheekbones. He keeps 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. Without his glasses, his eyes are much more noticeable for their high melanin, dark brown color and slightly down-turned shape. He has a pointy, round nose that contrasts with his prominent cheek bones. His chin is slightly shallow, complimenting his gently round jaw. His lips are very angular and pointed, heavily 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 However, he is very withdrawn and private, which is ironic considering he delights in deep connections with others.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.

Joseph discovered that he was descended from a powerful tribal chieftain that had legendary prowess as a warrior. Feeling inspired, 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. It happened so suddenly, Joseph felt lost, questioning whether they ever actually believed him in the first place. He began to spiral into depression and antisocial behavior. 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 showed 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.

One night, after traveling down the freeway to Detroit, Joseph stopped at a shady motel. There were many strange happenings at the motel, several guests had thousand yard stares, and locking mechanism on his door seemed a little too easy to get into for a motel. Joseph stayed up, and noticed the doors from all of the motel opening up. One by one, every guest but Joseph started exiting their room simultaneously. Joseph then begins to see monsters of disturbing proportions erupt from half of the guests and attack the other half. Joseph quickly escapes while the monsters give chase. Before they could catch Joseph a mile down the road, he is rescued by a group of native americans.

The natives, from various tribes across the country, were part of a group known as "the silent" who were adept at utilizing certain extra dimensional powers to combat eldritch threats in the area. The leader applauds Joseph's ability to out run the monsters for so long. Noticing has many similar abilities and traits to them, allow Joseph to become one of the silent. He is trained in many of their techniques and skills, before a ritual is performed. Joseph is exposed to ethereal, eldritch energy and is changed by it, gaining many powers of the silent.

Winding up in Detroit, Joseph found himself entangled in a struggle against strange creatures and forced to ally with a vigilante detective named Martin Stowman. Assisting him, the two were able to stop the threat, however Joseph was wounded in the process. Martin brought Joseph back to the apartment complex that Martin owned. Martin was part of an underground operation by a group of people working to stop the spread of eldritch abominations from another dimension. These creatures were the minions of seven powerful god-like creatures associated with the vices of humanity, only one of which was seemingly benevolent. Martin, a scholar of eldritch beings, knew many powerful spells utilizing the runes of the ancient creatures. Joseph decided to join this group as a field agent and detective. Though they sometimes worked alone, Joseph and Martin forged a bond of friendship, with Martin mentoring Joseph in combat, deduction, and the runes of the ancients. Martin began to observe a pattern of avoidant behavior in Joseph, something Joseph would actively deny.

After several months of investigation, Joseph and Martin discovered that the source of the creatures was a dimension rift, one large enough to allow the god of wrath, Hzi, into their dimension. Quickly locating the rift, the pair rushed to site, but were quickly ambushed. Though Joseph and Martin fought valiantly, Martin was mortally wounded. With no other options, Martin performed a banishment ritual powerful enough to seal the rift permanently, but also trapping him within it. The monsters vanished but Joseph was then approached by a white light, an avatar of the god of sloth, Kzu, who is the enemy of Hzi. Kzu touched Joseph with its light and granted Joseph powers befitting animals that it loved. Joseph inherited the apartment building as a result of Martin's death. Martin's work was not done, and Joseph continued it with his new found powers. He then met a young, neglected teenager named Alex who was living at the apartment complex. Through their similarities, Alex and Joseph bonded, forming a brother-sister relationship.

Joseph and Alex begin to bond more and more, with them both considering each other family, with Alex sharing her talents with art and interest in engineering. Joseph murders the chief of police, and discovers that the one who orchestrated Martin's ambush was another person like Joseph who acquired a spirit animal. Unlike Joseph however, this man had one spirit animal, the dog, and completed his training before leaving to become a criminal overlord. Joseph attempts to fight the crime lord, but is outmatched when the crime lord uses his completed training to take on a werebeast like form. Utilizing his own ingenuity combined with both the powers of the owl and cat, Joseph manages to defeat and mortally wound Martin's murderer.

Alex eventually discovers Joseph's owl and feline superpowers, and greatly encourages him to be a superhero. Joseph was not opposed to the idea, but he was hesitant to take up any alter ego. Alex decides to design a suit for Joseph, and convinces John to help her do it, motivating him with the idea that Joseph could take Martin's place as a superhero. When Alex finishes the suit, she presents it to Joseph, who humors her by trying it on. Alex tells Joseph that he should call himself "Owl-Cat" as a joke. Alex then spends time making adjustments to her super suit while continuing to convince Joseph to be a superhero.

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 turn himself invisible, become completely inaudible, choose who can hear the sounds he directly makes, and cancel out the inaudibility of others.

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.

Swimming: Joseph cannot swim.

The Items

The Owl-Cat outfit is far more durable than it appears, capable of protecting him from many conventional weapons like small caliber bullets, knives, and tasers. The gloves protect his fists from damage and the bracers protect and reinforce the forearm from blunt force trauma. The boots are excellent for lightweight movement and allow for protection, comfort, and full mobility. The cloak is also fire proof.

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

Joseph uses a 32 inch long, straight-stick baton. He has both a wooden and an aluminum baton, picking one or the other to take with him depending on the situation. Both batons feature a dull point on the end of the handle that allows him to jab with it.

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.
