Backstory & Questions
Who were you before?
“Who was I before I became what the news media named Basher? Well, believe it or not, I used to be a scrawny smart kid in high school. A weak little kid who had the luck of having a violent stepfather.”
Who or what made you this way?
“I made myself like this by getting my hands on some drugs. The kind that can give you superpowers. It took the drugs a while to kick in, but when they did, my stepdad didn't know 'what hit him.'"
Who, outside your peers, thinks they can save you?
Why don't you just hide yourself away from the world?
“I just want to get away from the public, okay? I want the world to see that I'm not the same weakling I used to be. That I had to become like this because nobody would help me, or my mother!"
Why do you put up with the others?
MC & Player Questions
How’d you transform yourself? Those super-soldier drugs aren’t easy to find. If you had help, did you incur a debt, and to whom?
You had a choice after dealing with your stepdad, why’d you stay an outlaw?
"I made my choice because the only thing people saw was that I was a monster who murdered someone. They never gave me a chance to explain why I made myself like this or why I killed my stepfather. If they want to see me as a monster, then fine. I'll be the monster they expect me to be..."
How’s your mom feel about your new look? Do you have any friends or relatives from your old life who stayed in touch?
"My mom didn't take it very well. She freaked out when she saw my new form and what I did to my stepfather. I tried to calm her down, but she wouldn't. Instead she threw stuff at me, saying 'Get away from me you monster!' and then she ran out of the apartment."
Unlike everybody else in the gang, you’re in “costume” 24/7. How do you handle everyday life as a scary dude?
