Metro City HAS MOVED to www.metrocityrpg.com > Renegade Biographies > Conner Comeau / Cynic


Title: Conner Comeau / Cynic


Cynic - June 21, 2011 08:56 PM (GMT)
Codename: Cynic

Real Name: Conner Comeau

Affiliation: Renegade

Origin: I never took up the cape, alright? I had it forced on me. That's what my dad does. He gets a kick out of the whole thing. But I just want to do something somewhat normal. So I go to law school, right? Dad barely talks to me at all the whole time. I go out on my own and start working under a Metro City law firm. Dad still doesn't talk to me. Until I start winning some cases. Then he's all over my case, and suddenly I find myself as a attorney at Stanley, Arthur, Clarfield, and Holmes. And somehow, a bunch of the super villain cases start coming to me. I finally notice and I go confront my dad. Tells me I've had powers all along. So then he makes me think I want to follow in footsteps. But then he goes off and dies, and now what am I supposed to do?


Powers/Abilities/Skills:

o Level 1: Cynic's power is hatred. At this level, he can increase hatred of things you already don't like. Suddenly, instead of wishing that little yippy dog would just shut up, you want it to die of AIDs. He can only affect one person at a time, within his sight, and no further than ten yards away.
o Level 2: The influence of his power grows. Instead of just wishing something on that yippy dog, you're ready to actually strangle it yourself. On weak-minded individuals, this comes to the forefront of their brain, often clouding them from any other thoughts. Additionally, he can affect a second person, and from twenty yards away.
o Level 3: Cynic gains the power to lessen hatred, even cause you to like things you didn't before. Need a kid to like brocolli? Cynic can handle that. He still has limits, however. He couldn't, say, make a member of the Klan marry a black woman. But he could make him stand to be in the same room with her. He can now affect small groups of people with general ideas, or two people with specific ideas.
o Level 4: Cynic can now incite riots wherever he goes, if he wants. He could make a single person love something they once hated. He no longer needs to see his victims.

Weaknesses: Cynic is a normal man. He is not super strong, fast, tough, or smart. Additionally, he has to

continously pour out some small amount of hatred onto something. When he's alone, he finds himself hating things he can stand when he's within eyesight of others.

Equipment: A bunch of law books, a smoking hot secretary, and a pair of legal aides.

Appearance:

o Civilian: bleh, see avatar. Although, note that he doesn't always have the ridiculous facial hair. Sometimes he LARPs steampunk. SUE HIM.
o Costumed: Like his father, he never had a costume made. But if he needs to hide his identity, he has a pair

of mirrored sunglasses, and a handkerchief.

Team: None

Miscellaneous: Son of Skeptic

Previous Metro City Experience: I'm the goddamn admin.

Who Stole The Tarts?
