    POWERS:
    1) Head Sat Nav- He can always get anywhere so even dumping him somewhere won't hinder him.
    2) Low frequency hearing- This allows Danny to here on coming storms, earthquakes and other low frequency things.
    3) Flight- After a lot of faffing about (preening as he calls it), he can make his arms sprout feathers and can fly at really high altitudes and speeds (just like pigeons)

    Making food last a really long time. Got a mean head butt guaranteed to knock you out.

    REAL NAME/ALIAS:
    Jacob Craft, aka Maestro
    AGE (30 & up):
    45
    GENDER:
    Male
    CATEGORY:
    Mystic
    POWERS:
    1) Flash Mob - like the Pied Piper, he has the ability to use music to override the thoughts and control the behavior of those in earshot. Animals are no challenge, but sentient beings, like humans, require more effort, and often more complex music than a single person can produce, but it is doable. In an odd quirk, even technically deaf living things can be controlled, as he once saved a hospital by piping a plague out of the patients, though the effort nearly put him into a coma.
    2) Dissonance - he is able to shatter objects and inflict pain with sound.
    3) Lullabye - can use music to render those in earshot unconscious. Used on a large group, the result is simple sleep, or he can focus on an individual and put them into a coma.
    SKILLS:
    A skilled musician; accomplished, if not expert, in hand-to-hand combat; decent marksman
    APPEARANCE:
    A nice looking man who's kept himself in shape, despite middle age; thick black hair gone mostly silver; green eyes; clothing has lots of pockets for carrying musical implements. His costume's signature colors back in the day were green and purple
    WEAPON/S (If any):
    Carries musical instruments, such as a harmonica or ocarina with him at all times, but isn't above using a handgun or retractable baton in a pinch.
    OTHER:
    A natural-born Mystic, he was once told his abilities came from a mysterious force called The Narrative, which ensures there is always someone to carry the legacy of figures such Snow White, Red Riding Hood, and, in Jacob's case, the Pied Piper.
    He retired from superheroics when the mother of his son--the product of his questioning youth, before he fully accepted his sexuality--died, and he became a full-time parent.
    When the strange letter arrived, his now-adult son had graduated college and was moving in with his girlfriend.

    Erik, a couple of questions:
    *how much of the Stronghold was destroyed? This would likely have been seen on the news.
    *who were the members of the League? I get if this is something to be revealed in-game, but it makes sense for the public to know who they were. Not secret identities, of course, but the way the general public knows that Captain America, Iron Man, etc, are in the Avengers.

    I have some questions.
    1). Did any other hero's survive?
    2). Are we supposed to figure out how the stronghold was destroyed?

    Oh! (And sorry to bombard you with questions.) How many other super teams are there? Or was the League the first of its kind?

    Most of the Stronghold was destroyed. Mainly the front hall, where all the superheroes were gathered when the missile struck. I was gonna reveal the members of the League when we finally look at the security footage, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to tell you here:

    Strong-Arm, leader of the League of Heroes, an Enhanced soldier with super strength and super healing. Fought with a baton.

    Sharpshooter, a highly skilled shooter, Superhuman, used a pair of handguns and an old-fashioned wood-handled pistol that once belonged to his grandfather.

    Arianrhod, a Divinity from old Welsh mythology, came to earth thousands of years ago and fell in love with humanity and decided to stay, has super strength, super healing, can fly, conjure and manipulate fire, and uses a giant spear in battle.

    Hat Man, a mysterious hero who wears a long trench coat, blacked-out sunglasses and a large black hat that hides his face, can fight almost as good as Silhouette, is an extremely talented detective, and has the ability to turn into a shadow and phase through solid objects, no one knows if he is an Enhanced, a Mutant or a Mystic.

    So there they are. Also, there are other superhero teams, but none of them are in Fortress City and none of them are as powerful and fearsome as the League of Heroes.

    Oh, and yes, Silhouette is the only one whose body was not found after the Stronghold was bombed.

    Not invincible, she can be hurt. Divinities can be killed just like a normal person, they just have very long lifespans.

    Ready to join the brawl. I just hope I can keep up with the amazing speed this thing is going!

    REAL NAME/ALIAS:
    John Wilson, aka The Traveller
    AGE (30 & up):
    33
    GENDER:
    Male
    CATEGORY:
    Superhuman
    POWERS:
    None.
    EQUIPMENTS:
    Small explosives varying from smokebombs and flashbangs to hard-hitting damage dealers, in the shape of cufflinks, coat buttons, aglets and the like.
    SKILLS:
    In his travels John has met many interesting people who have taught him a wide variety of skills and knowledge. For example, he is the quickest draw known (on earth anyway), an excellent gunman, and knows his way around hand-to-hand combat. He has also learned a great deal of history, literature, has come in contact with more different cultures than any living man, he philosophies and analyses, but despite all this he still has a very naïve personality. In a world of fallen heroes and a lacklustre people, he is one of the few kind, good men left.
    APPEARANCE:
    Though small in his youth, he has now grown to be a normal sized, all-round average man with friendly looking features, even if not particularly attractive. He’s not handsome, but anyone with a heart will look straight through that and like him from the start. He still has something of that boy left in him that we all believe we lost.
    He wears a long coat and a big straw hat. Around his waist is a gun belt with a very futuristic, yet rustic looking gun.
    WEAPON/S (If any):
    Apart from his miniature bombs, he just carries his blaster that he got from the wife of an old space-warrior that died a long time ago. It’s a laser weapon, firing single short beams. It is known as one of the best guns in the galaxy. Only a few of them were ever made.
    OTHER:
    John’s biggest asset though is his big heart. He cares for people in a way that most people of this day and age have lost.
    When he still a child he made a journey through the stars with only one travel companion. On his return, he decided to help people out any way he could, but after a decade he left again to travel to the planet where he left his companion behind. Now, somehow receiving the message -S send, he finds it is time to return to earth and protect the people he loves.
    Added note: he used to be poor, so he knows how that feels like too.

    Wait, I'm confused. We are still actually fighting miss Le Fay, who is blocking your only exit, right?

    No, my character attacked her, and we fled into the street. That is where we all are currently at.

    Oh, ok. I kind of had the feeling that attack didn't really impress her enough to allow for an opening, or that she was the kind of villain you could easily run away from... But maybe I'm overthinking it.

    Lol, we are waiting for Erik, because it basically happened in the attack for a moments distraction and escape. Silhouette is going to take us to a safe place.

    But before she does, there is still an evil Arthurian witch breathing in our necks right? Because if not, I'll have to edit my first post. I kinda figured you were all still facing off Morgana in the corridor, so that's why I had John introduce himself to her first, seeming as how he came from the other side of the door she was blocking, but if we are already outside of her reach that doesn't make much sense anymore :p

    Oh, lol, I thought u were introducing urself to me! And u probably should edit ur post, if ya don't mind. Edit it to make sense that U came and found us on the street, tried to talk to me, and then Pigeon Man (Danny) replied, and told u were silhouette was and such. Please.
