Molecular hero: Anti-Virus

Post by Hilo Takenaka » Sat May 26, 2018 1:59 pm

Name: Paschalis Kazan
Alias: Anti-Virus
Age: 51
Alignment: Good
Appearance: Paschalis prior to his experiments was a hideous figure. His eyes were small and droopy, close together on his narrow face. Between them was his large, bulbous nose that was often bright red, making him look drunk. He had many wrinkles on his face, which wasn’t the only sign of age, as both his curly mop of hair and his overgrown sideburns were grey. His entire back was covered with freckles along his nervous network, but it was covered up by a large puffer jacket.

After experiments, he looked something beyond human. His physique had changed so instead of being all skin and bones, he has a much stronger and more muscular frame. His head had morphed into something much more mutant-like, with rows of sharp teeth, horns along his head and white, pupiless eyes. His skin faintly glows a pale blue, but it’s unnoticeable when in daylight.
Brief Bio: Born in Crete, Paschalis comes from a weak, conservative family. His father was a man that desperately wanted a child despite his low fertility and his mother constantly got drunk off tsikoudia. When he was born he was praised as a blessing. However, he was diagnosed with several problems, such as Neurofibromatosis, High-Spectrum Autism and otherwise intellectual disability. Due to the already toxic nature of his parents’ relationship, he grew up fairly naïve until a fight broke out with both parents being terribly scarred. Believing he himself was the driving wedge between his father and his mother, Paschalis ran away from home.
Growing up on the streets in Crete was tough. He knew little people due to his mental conditions, but many people took pity and gave him food, money and shelter. He even fell in love with a beautiful lady that gave him a home.
After spending a few years with her, she bore him a child that was free of terrible conditions and disorders. Yet not long after that did Paschalis catch his “love” cheat on him. Piecing things together and confronted his manipulative girlfriend, who admitted into using him all their relationship. After both a physical and verbal fight, his girlfriend fell on the ground unconscious. Knowing it wouldn’t end well, he dropped his son off at the orphanage and took a boat to mainland Greece. He would live his life ashamed for who he was.
That was until ProjectViral appeared 29 years later...

Project Viral promised Paschalis that he would be cured of his illness. That he could be smart and strong and loved by all. He could even be able to get a job; a dream he always wanted! He signed up to the program, which injected him with various different chemicals and began transmuting his body. Whatever he became, it wasn’t he once was. His brainpower tenfolded, almost to a level that would rival top scientists! However, there was something that Project Viral hid from Paschalis; he was to be a mindless soldier.
Thankfully, Paschalis was strong enough physically and mentally to keep on fighting, and broke free from his captors. Now roaming the world as a wandering hero, righting the wrongs so nobody had to suffer like he did.
Powers, Abilities, and Equipment: Anti-Virus’s main powers stem from the experiments that were performed on his body. This allows him to transform his body into a form of energy that is recognised by electrical currents, WiFi and Radio signals. Once traversing through these fields he can change information stored in them and reappear somewhere else that is connected to that position.
Example: He goes to a server that a criminal is connected to and turns into energy which is sent to that phone VIA wifi. Once he is at that location, he launches out and turns back into his physical form.
Other gear includes a metal pole + chain that acts as a conduit for electricity.
Despite being immune to electric shocks, he suffers from a downside of being targeted by viruses and firewalls alike that think he’s malware, but also he can’t transport through the waves unless he’s in physical contact with the object he wishes to travel through.

This is really interesting. Definitely approved.

Point of clarity: "After both a physical and verbal fight, his girlfriend fell on the ground unconscious. Knowing it wouldn’t end well, he dropped his son off at the orphanage and took a boat to mainland Greece"

If she's unconscious (i.e. not dead) - why'd he take the kid to an orphanage?

Thanks!
And I have an answer for that: “After both a physical and verbal fight, his girlfriend fell to the ground. Believing that he killed her he took his son to an orphanage, hoping he would be safe there. Afterwards he decided to leave Crete, stowing away on a ferry, fearing the consequences of his actions

Awesome! That's sort of what I was thinking, but then again it was possible that he'd just be like "Oh, she can get him from the orphanage when she wakes up."
I look forward to seeing what you do with him.

Interesting stuff, out of curiosity when he goes digital does it carry what's on his person such as clothes and the pole. Also just curious what a virus "feels" like hope to see that sometime sounds really different

Does he carry any kinetic energy when "launching out" of objects? It would be fun to see him deliver an Ant Man style punch to someone talking on their phone. Also, how do things like downed wires and network latency affect him? Is he transferred in a single packet of data? Could packet loss potentially cause him physical damage upon re-materialization?
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

To answer both of your questions, he carries his kinetic energy through his attacks, but his outer clothes and weapons stay behind. Because of this he fitted both with trackers that can remotely receive signals so he can quickly return back to them.
As for how a virus feels, it’s like sticking your hands in a large wad of webs. It feels unnatural and sinking.
Because he can direct where he goes and when he reappears, I feel as if grounded wires won’t be that much of an issue.
I also tend to think of his body as a stream of electricity, whilst his conscience is in a package. Package damage is usually mental pain, such as headaches and the sensation of ringing ears

Love details like that
