Gravity Man
"Why am I the way I am? Because of the most deadly poison to all mankind. Hope. Through hope they've taken everything and now... hurting them is all I have left. Don't think you have the right to lecture me for being evil. I've been there, both good and evil. I see it for what it really is while all you do is sit there staring at the map. "

The Looks


 Gravity man is distinguishable due to his rather strange set of attire. His primary attire seems to be something out of a horribly overdone slasher series. It's a black robe/cloak looking thing with frayed and tattered bottoms and sleeves, black boots and a hood that drapes over his face. The robe is split in the middle though not revealing a thin set of durable armor beneath him (to be added later as advancement) There is an embroidered purple G over his heart and a black overcloak that one might expect to find on a king...or a Harry Potter cosplay. Beneath the hood is a relatively unremarkable man whose only distinguishing features are the fact his eyes appear to have some SERIOUS cataracts.

The Legacy



Personality:
  A tormented and angry molten core that is burning eternally beneath miles and layers of a cold and calculating intellectual person. Yes I just described the earth, but it's also applicable to his personality. He is layered, and occasionally if you strike the right area you will release the pressurized molten core. A good example of it is calling Gravity man by his real name. Call him that and he's liable to kill without mercy, without hesitation and without thinking of the ramifications. He despises, above all, being reminded of the fact he does not have the power to do something. Furthermore being late to events, people ascertaining his identity or other such things are unacceptable to him and heads will roll. He cannot seem to believe that something is out of his hands, or that something is beyond his control.

Despite his history, Gravity Man is not one of those people who you just need to hug and be friends with. Trying to do that will likely get you killed. Gravity Man acknowledges he is a victim of circumstance but he CHOOSES to rise above it and obtain power, seeing it as opportunity. Be it because he's so mentally messed up, or because it's his inherent personality... Gravity Man is a villain for one reason. He wants to see his enemies destroyed.

  Generally speaking, Gravity Man is know primarily as a "sociopathic" man whose antics and plans often times are the cause of great chaos, riots in the streets and men and women turning upon their own kin. The "rumors" have it that whenever gravity man is near you can tell simply because of how people act more "insane" and "deranged" around him and are more likely to cause problems. Events of the most unnatural will also occur and it is for this reason he's been in constant evasion of The Agency. Regardless of superstition and conceptualizations one thing is for certain... Gravitas or "Gravity Man" is not a force to be trifled with. He's a brilliant mind with power, resources and nothing to lose.

Nothing is more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose.


History:
 The subject of experimentation by an enigmatic group known as "The Agency". A young man named Zak was taken and experimented upon with the meta-gene and the experiment manipulated to essentially create a living weapon. This weapon was known as "Experiment: Gravitas" and soon enough it would be the weapon they desired. Zak, Gravitas, was placed in a home, given two parents and allowed to live a remotely normal life for a short time. His mother and father both pawns to an Agency ploy, and sooner rather than later they would find themselves cast aside when their use had run out.

Spoiler:
 Zak was still a young boy when the men in black suits came and took his family away alongside him. The Agency took him, locked him in a cell for three years. He was allowed to receive card and letters, but he was not allowed to send any. While imprisoned he received letters from the people who were once his family. His father had grown ill and passed, then his mother soon became lonely, though continued to write to him every day. The clicking on the wall only became clearer as He began to receive letters from another prisoner, something that baffled him, but elated him all the same.

  Zak quickly grew attached to the letters, feeling as if they were his only connection to his family and to his friend, Jared. Zak was forced to watch the world around him evolve. Eventually he got a letter from his friend Jared that explained that he was planning to escape and find their families. It then stated that he wanted to free Zak and so they could all escape together, meanwhile he began getting depressing letters from his mother about how her own isolation began to break her inside and that she was so lonely she couldn't stand it any longer. She began to ask why Zak didn't respond, and asked if it was because he was mad at her. She pleaded and begged him to understand she didn't want this for him, and she didn't know that this would happen. She was simply a barren woman who wanted a child...and when a family friend, Jamison, offered to help them with an adoption she gladly accepted.

  Zak wanted to reply, but he was forbidden. He was forced to watch as letter after letter came from his mother and from Jared. Each one from his friend updating him on their escape plan. Each letter from mother getting more and more somber. Until finally he received a letter that stated that she felt too alone. She wrote that the loneliness was killing her and so she ventured that if she didn't hear back from him soon that she would die. One way or another. Zak could scream, holler and do whatever a seven year old boy could do to try and write back to his mom. All of them on deaf ears, especially as he hadn't even seen a guard since he lost consciousness three years ago.

  Jared finally put the plan into place and soon he began to initiate their elaborate escape. Jared was the first person Zak had seen in three years. He was shocked, but finally the door was removed and they began to look for their families. They finally made it to Jared's father's room and freed him...but when they went to find Zak's family all he found was a blood stained letter, a pool of blood and a broken mirror with the words "Zak I love you" written over and over again. Zak, unable to accept the fact he could not prevent his mother's death was dragged out and away through the facility. As they got towards the front door they began to notice the door had light, but darkness in the room all around. Before long, Jared's father's head was kindly removed by a bullet and the lights turned on.

  The Agency then drug both Zak and Jared back to their cell's to live another two years in total isolation. The letters never came. Letters were never sent. This was his life and the clicking on the wall. Him in a room with a bed, and food that he wasn't sure he could eat, as half the time he did he later woke up with sutures and stitches from experiments they easily preformed on him because of drugged food.

  The Agency finally drug him out of isolation, and then they put it on him. The second shackling device. They sent him off with a group of metahumans, one of them being Jared. In the time it took, Jared had changed a lot and even his powers seemed different. In the field the group of four metahumans excelled. They were truly weapons of control and precision. They were The Agency's hands. Their first successes. Unfortunately as they came back from taking down a small country's prestigious government forces, The Agency stated that they expected three of them to die. Finally the four metahumans were forced to fight and kill one and other. Zak had grown fond of his group, but was shocked to see that it would not be a four person free for all. The Director of the Agency commanded two of the metahumans to kill themselves. They obviously struggled, but ultimately resistance was futile. Each one would have killed each other willingly, until Zak was forced to cripple Jared, but ended up refusing to finish him off.  The Director walked over and placed a gun in Zak's hand, and then put a gun in Jared's hand.

  The director informed Zak that Jared that he listened to their conversations and their bonding on their dispatched mission. It was revealed that Jared was a religious young man, despite being a child he took comfort in his faith, his father's faith. He then clarified that suicide was quite a sin and that if Zak allowed Jared to commit suicide he would be sending him straight to Hell, something that Jared feared and something that Zak was made fully aware of. The director commanded Jared to put the gun under his chin and then looked to Zak. The director said he would count to five, and as soon as the director said "five" Jared was to pull the trigger and end his own life. The director started with one, leaving Jared to plead for a moment, begging Zak to kill him. Then the director said two, which left Zak to protest. The director said three, and Jared assured him it was okay. The director said for, Zak closed his eyes and pulled the trigger and when he did... *click*... *click*.... The clip was empty. Zak looked to the director, hopeful that this was all just a test. The director looked to Zak and chuckled saying

 "Well...at least you tried." and then when Zak looked back to Jared (as the director knew he would, out of sheer shock value) he said "Five"... and the rest was history....

   Zak was never the same after that. Who could be? The child had murdered by the age of twelve. Zak eventually grew and as he did so did his power. Eventually he was powerful enough to break away with the first ever forced-created metahuman the Agency had created. Zak used his powers to break the primitive shackle around his neck, and made his grand escape into the outside world, where he learned just how cruel all humans were. Spending some time as a homeless kid, spending some time as a thug. Zak learned harsh lessons, but they were easy compared to his childhood. Eventually he made his way to Indianapolis where he killed and usurped a group of his own. He and the gang generals then migrated and spread to the Pittsburgh region in hopes of taking opportunities there.

  His gang did well and held up on their own, soon ruling half of the Pittsburgh underground and half of the Indianapolis underground. Something he wouldn't keep, but something he willingly let go of. It was eventually discovered that Jared may still be alive. Due to Agency experiments it was revealed that he did indeed survive, and now it was time for Zak to free his ally. Sacrificing a good chunk of his membership, they stormed an Agency base and intercepted a pod containing Jared, releasing him and recruiting him to destroy The Agency and possibly human kind once and for all, and he planned to do so by taking over a rival gang. Royal Pain's gang in Pittsburgh.

  During his years in Pittsburgh, he encountered a rather "charming" kid Hero that went under the name "The Talon", a bird like entity with bird claws, the ability to fly and a powerful sonic screech. Still looking close to his age, Zak and his little "gang" were a recurring enemy for The Talon, though often times Zak withdrew or retreated out of the simple compassion he felt for a young "hero" with aspirations and the desire to protect his family and friends. It was Talon who gave Zak the name "Gravity Man". Several times Gravity Man went face to face with Talon, each time he won he would spare the Talon, each time he lost was a general error made by an underling that forced a retreat. There were few occasions even when Gravity Man and Talon were forced to fight side by side, in many cases it had been against The Agency and other prominent gangs that were in the way. Although they were enemies, Gravity Man had in fact developed a connection, even going as far as total ambivalence towards Talon, showing no care for even arresting and defeating previous generals. His semi-emotional attachment to this enemy was severed in one conflict when Talon used a sonic screech to throw Gravity Man back and then flung himself at him. Talon tried to be child-like and cool and figured with his talons he'd slice the hood and reveal the face of his nemesis to the world. A simple miscalculation drove the talons themselves across Gravity Man's eyes and ended his ability to see.  A scared Talon then tried to leave Gravity man with sliced eyes and what was essentially a severed nose-bridge.

  In his rage, Gravity Man used his powers to ground Talon, this time for the final time. The mid-air hero was slammed to the ground and then slowly and forcibly condensed to the degree that the young man was imploded, then Gravity Man released his power and cause an explosion of gore. Without another word he made his way back to the base, trying to sense and detect his way through his sensitivity to gravity and the gravity emitted by other forces. It's uncertain if it was out of regret, or out of sheer calculative nature that Zak kept the name "Gravity Man", as no one tends to take seriously one with such a simple and unoriginal name.

  It took a few years for him to master the ability to use his power in order to "sense" and "see" the area around him through his power, and unfortunately it did have it's repercussions, as he found himself aging at a rather alarming rate than usual, and by time he actually mastered his control of his power and his sensitivity-sight he already appeared to be a twenty five year old man.  Gravity Man and his "gang" are now on the prowl, keeping his Pittsburgh sect under direct authority of himself and his most trusted general.

  Generally speaking, Gravity Man is know primarily as a "sociopathic" man whose antics and plans often times are the cause of great chaos, riots in the streets and men and women turning upon their own kin. The "rumors" have it that whenever gravity man is near you can tell simply because of how people act more "insane" and "deranged" around him and are more likely to cause problems. Events of the most unnatural will also occur and it is for this reason he's been in constant evasion of The Agency. His evasion of The Agency and their "tests" on him have led him to many mysterious ends and found himself on the brink of sanity as he's encountered many dangerous metahumans and humans alike, each time surviving the encounter with more knowledge than before.

 The Agency has yet to relent their pursuit upon him as they've taken virtually every living person he's ever developed even the most remote connection for, and he's continued to make his mark on the world through underground dealings and acts of terrorism.


 



The Powers



Telekinetic generated gyrokinesis: His very existence generates disruptions in gravity. It is his focus on suppressing this effect, and allowing the effect to roam wild that allows him to mimic telekinetic-like effects within the gravitational pull between himself, and between matter.

Gyrosensetivity: The ability to sense and "see" as well as feel the effect of gravity on all things within a 50 yard radius. This is an enhanced sense power that can supplement for his lack of vision. The vision can be generalized or concentrated. See weaknesses for more info.

Superhuman reflexes/combat prowess: The ability to react and enact his power out of sheer instinct and reaction that he can implement his powers and begin making movements. He is also dangerously skilled with chains, pistols and total mastery over his own original weapon that will be named at a later date.

Gravitational Field Side-effects: Due to the constant influence of gravity he has simply by existing; Gravity man has his own gravitational field and has actually conditioned his body in the harsh gravity in terms of training and cardio. This gives him superhuman durability and stamina as his body has compacted on a molecular level and his training has allowed him to go longer stretches in Earth's gravity without tiring as easily.

Gravitational compression/dispersion: His workings into augmenting his own self and actually working with his gravity to a smaller and more focused level. This allows him to influence gravity on a much, much smaller scale and actually influence the density of things and objects. This allows Gravitas to control the density of objects or people by making the target more compact and dense, or causing dispersion which causes the target to become less dense. This also subsequently allows Gravitas to increase or decrease the weight of a target whose density he is altering. Gravitas has recently learned that lessening density Gravitas to be able to stand things that one could otherwise not stand upon, like water or air.

Gyrovectoral Manifestation: Gravitas is able to utilize his power and affect more than just gravity.  Gravitas' very existence is destructive to the laws of natural born physics, and as such with extreme care he can actually generate a type of vector manipulation, playing and altering the forces of kinetic and potential energies, momentums and altering directional influences of matter. Further more he can also influence the level of inertia, acceleration and quantum potential at the most destructive levels.




The Weaknesses



Sight through Gravity: He is only able to see things with the assistance of his gravity sensitivity. While doing this he is unable to see things in great detail (i.e read things, notice colors or details). If he focuses in great detail he is bale to single out words/writing on parchment/signs/etc but his radial detection/sensory is completely removed.
example 1:
Gravity Man in order to preform a task such as "read" ink on paper or see the details of someone's face or see anything with clear detail needs to focus his sight, which removes his "radial danger sense" effect from his Gyrosensetivity. While focusing he is vulnerable as if he were a simple person with eyes. Without his "radial" sensitivity activated he is unaware of anything happening beside him or behind him, leaving him rather defenseless to another incoming attack, be it from speedsters to guns or whatever has slipped out of his line of vision.
example 2:
Without focusing his sense, Gravity Man only has a "rough sketch" of the situation. A good analogy would be like seeing mist figures or stick figures in comparison to the Mona Lisa drawing that is his focused sense. That being said he cannot distinguish certain shapes with ease, or tell when one is wearing armor. His sight is reflective of the "weight" of something. So if someone throws a tennis ball at him, a rock at him and a grenade at him with only general sense he is limited to knowing three object of the same "size" and of different weights were thrown. The tennis ball weighs less than the rock, which weighs less than the grenade. Unfortunately without specified sense he's not going to be able to discern the danger of the grenade until it's perhaps too late, or unless he shifts to specialized sight, which then he's looking down at the objects and not paying attention or aware of everything going on around him.

Extension of myself: His power is not a mental power. His power is actually his own physiological existence influencing the "gravity" (his powers). That being said, any use of his power MUST be accommodated by the movement of some part of his body.

Volatile: Gravity Man is in fact volatile, as stated in his personality he will act violently and without mercy to anyone who calls him by his name, likely to become unfocused and rage-fiend when blood is drawn, and being an all around uncompromising objectivist means these volatile outbursts can tend to make it difficult for him to ally with someone. These outbursts that cause him to rage-fiend out also result in him becoming lethargic, more easily tired and overall weaker than normal as the thread progresses.

Combat Specialist: Gravity Man is skilled with Chains, Pistols and his own original weapon. His reflexes are for primarily activating his power and dodging. Any other weapon he is as clumsy as a baby learning to walk with it and has no real use for it.

Thick skin is heavy skin: In increasing his durability he has become more compact in his density and therefore is forced to increase his overall weight as well. This makes swimming difficult and can be an issue for several obvious reasons. The more durable he makes himself the heavier he gets.

Opposition: Due to their opposing natures of density, Gravitas cannot use both wind-walking and durability, he must choose one or the other.

The risks of being dense: By altering his density and the density of other things he also alters their weight, which means when he is more dense he will be unable to swim without assistance from his powers, or he may break what he is standing upon. Likewise if he lessens his density he very well may be easily blown away by a strong gust.

Linear incline: He cannot increase density without increasing weight, or vice versa.




RP Mechanics



Engineering/Medical Background: Zak's Agency background and isolation gave him plenty of time to read. His favorite subjects and most known subjects are in mechanical engineering and in medical treatment.

Lunatic effect: Have you ever heard of the Lunar effect? Yeah it's a myth. You know what's not a myth? Strange shit goes on in the human mind when Gravitas is around. Though it's unsure why, people tend to act just a little more crazy around Gravitas. That doesn't mean that people are always in an uproar, but things like Riots, mob mentality and al around crime rate increases. it was speculated that this is because of one of two things. The first being that his inherent effect on gravity causes on the water of the body, and ultimately influences neuron impulses, subsequently making people less able to resist the temptation of bad judgment calls. The second theory is that his effect on gravity actually makes it more difficult on youth hear to pump blood and blood takes a little longer to reach the brain, which causes the blood to be less oxidized and eventually causing the brain to be oxygen deprived and their judgment suffers, thus the "lunatic" effect. Whatever the reason... people are just a bit more likely to go crazy around him.

Age Effect: It is a little known fact that gravity actually does have an effect on our aging process. Unfortunately, he found this out a little too late as his physical being began to age at a rather noticeable increased rate. By time he had the ability to use his own power to circumvent these effects he was already at the physical age of a 25 year old.

Superfluid: Gravity Man's ability being a direct output of his own physiology, means that his blood, regardless of where or when spilled, functions as a superfluid. Meaning it looks like a fluid and acts as a fluid, but moves through air as if it were a gas and with 0 viscosity, making his blood able to escape even air-tight containers.

Phoenix Down: The once-Hero Phoenix was defeated and utterly broken by Rise. Gravitas had no interest in breaking the hero, his investment was in what happened when the hero perished. Once he was dead, Phoenix turned to ash to be reborn. Before that happened, Gravitas utilized his power to collect the ash and compress it into a beautiful gemstone that radiates power. He has yet to train or prepare for what he used the gem for, but he has it safely hidden.

Trivia


* Gravity Man and much of his gang are fans of the Pokémon Series. They even have their own code for classifying threats and their powers off of Pokémon classifications.

* Gravity Man's accidentally gave The Talon his powers with radioactive birds. He to this day still has no idea what he was thinking.

* Gravity Man created "The Gravitron Glaive", an original type of weapon that has surprising effectiveness. He got the idea while sitting on some kid's trampoline in their back yard while they screamed and tried to call the police.

* Gravity Man has a bad habit. He feels the compulsive urge to answer other peoples Cell-phones and opening the conversation with the line "I'm in your house." while people are away from their cell phones. This habit formed when he once lost a bet to Jared which resulted in him having to answer his own phone like that for a week. He does it to other peoples phones because it's much funnier when people don't know you and aren't expecting it.

* Gravity Man uses the moniker "Gravity Man" and the strange appearance to come off as a laughable and unoriginal person. A ploy to deceive people into not taking him seriously.

*  His metagene triggered due to his once-fear of falling to his death. When he had to go "sky-diving" for his captors.

* Gravity Man is one of few people who knows how a primitive Agency Shackle works.

*57 Xp from Yamm, 15 Xp from Tsxero, 228 Xp from Silus*
