    Defense: 2
    Perception: 5
    Initiative Mod: 6
    Speed: 11

    Attacks
    Unarmed Strike: Damage 0(B)
    Brass Knuckles*: Damage 1(B); Size n/a; Cost •; Special Brawl*
    Imbued Cestus*: Damage 1(B); Size n/a; Cost ••••; Special Brawl*; Evil Eye
    • Body Blow: Your character can deliver powerful blows that leave opponents reeling and gasping for air. If successes inflicted in a single Brawl attack equal or exceed a target’s Size, the victim loses his next action.
    • Duck and Weave: Your character is trained to instinctively duck and evade an opponent’s blows. Use the higher of your character’s Dexterity or Wits to determine his Defense when dealing with Brawl-based attacks only (not against Weaponry attacks). If a combination of Brawl and Weaponry-based attacks is focused on your character in the same turn, use his normal Defense against both.
    • Combination Blows: Your character’s training and experience allow him to devastate opponents with a flurry of rapid blows. He can make two Brawl attacks against the same target in a single action. The second attack suffers a -1 penalty.
      Drawback: Your character cannot use his Defense against any attack in the same turn in which he intends to use this maneuver. If he uses Defense against attacks that occur earlier in the Initiative roster, before he can perform this maneuver, he cannot perform the maneuver in the turn. He is too busy bobbing and weaving out of the way of attacks.
    • Haymaker: Your character can deliver powerful, accurate blows capable of knocking an opponent unconscious with a single punch. A single Brawl attack that equals or exceeds the target’s Size in damage might knock him unconscious. A Stamina roll is made for the victim. If it succeeds, he is conscious but he still loses his next action due to the Body Blow (see above). If it fails, he is unconscious for a number of turns equal to the damage done.
      Drawback: Your character cannot use his Defense against any attack in the same turn in which he intends to use this maneuver. If he uses Defense against attacks that occur earlier in the Initiative roster, before he can perform this maneuver, he cannot perform the maneuver in the turn. He is too busy bobbing and weaving out of the way of attacks.

    Nimbus
    Rory's nimbus is a mostly light blue nimbus but with streaks of a soft red through it that seems to vibrate and pulse like strings to an unknown rhythm. When vibrating or pulsing a lot it seems like they leave purple accents behind from the blending colours. When showing his vice the red becomes stronger, more prominent and more active.

    Physical Description
    A 6ft imposing guy, 'Beats' is a well muscled man of half Latino and half white descent. He has the Tatoos on the arms and the sleeveless tank tops. He even used to wear the stereotypical chain with medallion, now he only wears his headphones round his neck. Hair trimmed short and facial hair generally shaven so stubble remains. Tattoo on left arm, vines circling bicep. Inset earing of an hourglass that can turn over. Currently always wears a bandanna or beanie hat to cover his silvered forehead.

    History
    'Beats' as he was known for his constantly wearing headphones around his neck playing music, was from a bad part of town, not the worst, but definitely not the best. His mum raised him alone, telling him that his father has disappeared the moment she got pregnant. She also worked long hours as a nurse, often late into the night, relying on babysitters and friends to care for her son.

    This didn't mean she didn't love him and every spare moment she had from providing for him was spent with him and this made all the difference. Early in his teens he rebelled a little and even got a few Tatoos on his arms and ran with a gang to anger her but further into his teens he came to understand what she sacrificed for him and started on a straighter path. He also realized just how badly he was judged purely on his background situation.

    He turned this into drive and finished his schooling before getting into university purely by force of will and effort, studies were not his strong point but perseverance was and anytime he was judged on appearance or background he used as fodder for his courses. 'Social work for the inner city slums'. He graduated and immediatly went to work in the worst parts of town. Between his appearance (muscular, Tatoos and clearly knowing how to handle himself) and his clear honest drive to help them, the kids accepted him and his work to better their lives.

    He didn't tell them "you must change and be like this" he said "You are you, unique. Maybe in a bad place right now, but let's help you fight for a better place and a better life.". This message was new for them and over the first three years he helped many of them finish schooling and hold down jobs. Of course there was the occasional fight or punch thrown, but he had ran with gangs to learn to fight dirty, then learned to box to ensure he could end any fight quickly and efficiently so others weren't dragged in. People learned early he was no pushover.

    Generally an open person, well spoken, if peppered with occasional slang. He does have an angry side but that is usually used only in the defence of his 'boys'. The world is a horrible place so he has chosen his corner to fight for and he isn't going to jump into other needless fights when he has so much to defend already, he will however lend a helping hand or ear if it is needed or he thinks he can help.

    Current Situation: lives in SE Washington DC
    'Beats' lives alone in a small fifth floor apartment, fairly standard 1 bed, 1 kitchen and living/dining room set-up. His apartment is near the border of where people would start recognizing streets as the 'bad part of town' (on the bad side of the border) he works a few blocks further in. A small community centre which has the local basketball courts and youth outreach programs.

    He has some locals he calls friends, generally they hang out at the courts and play ball. No current girlfriend but is interested in one of the girls who hangs with them and she seems like she might be interested too. He hasn't acted yet though as a lot of his time is spent helping out his 'kids' from the programs he runs which is a pretty full time job in the evenings and weekends just as much as the paid hours.

    Learning Curve (Cleaning House)
    Space is very powerful but the possible backlash is equally big if you overuse it, or use it badly.

    If he is to help more, he needs enough body sphere to heal others and himself.

    Paradox can make you literally explode apart and disintegrate if you portal in front of a sleeper.

    Space an forces will make a very powerful combo but only if used from a distance and pre-prepared.

    Demons are very dangerous and tricky.

    A better balance of spells and natural abilities needs to be used to avoid paradox.

    He is still too keen to show off, somthing left over from his youth. Needs to restrain himself and plan better for the best results. His pride almost got in the way but having a partner nearby prevented it so keeping with others will be important to avoid mistakes.

    ---

    Learning Curve (Loose Ends)
    He has been learning keenly his old reliance on physical skill and abilities is very limited compared to powers. In a different less trained body he was just as effective, but that effectiveness was greatly undermined by half or more of the enemies being invisible to him. He knows he is going to have to gain the ability to see and interact with the spirits if he is to progress.

    ---

    Learning Curve (Dark Web)
    Beats spent some time reflecting on what had happened and came to several conclusions.

    Paradox had seemed dangerous before however this time it had come out of nowhere and Beats had no way to tell if he was going to be the next person to cause an incident. Maybe one like Saint had or maybe worse. He would have to be more careful with how he used his magic from now on. However, and maybe most importantly, used correctly he can mitigate the paradox by making the spells seem like ordinary occurrences.

    This also lead to the next issue. His Pride and Anger. He had been so set on solving the issue due to the hangover he had with his previous 'case' that he had let his old tendencies get the better of him, acting rashly and trying to solve things himself. He was going to have to get his Pride in check for what was to come.

    Finally he had begun to learn just how strange and impossibly powerful their enemies were. It had taken their mentors stepping in just to reach the area controlled by 1 of the demons and they had been next to powerless there. Running had been their only option and it hadn't even seemed like the demon was trying that hard. He was going to have to strengthen his resolve as well as abilities.

    ---

    Learning Curve (Payback's a Bitch)
    Beats had been reflecting on actions and results and has purposefully taken a back seat role with what was happening in several instances but often that didn't prevent issues arising. Robor had been left to form and now worryingly incompletable pack with a demon who had gained great power as a result. Had Beats been willing to force his way out of the trap at the risk of backlash he could have prevented it.

    He was going to have to rethink his stance again to find a middle ground to balance risk and reward.

    Also being maimed has made him decide that he needs better control over his abilities as well as others effects on his. He is going to have to gain strength in a new area to enable him to have new and more diverse choices and options in the future.

    Finally he is finding himself highly reliant on the others. While not a bad thing, he is still not used to this and knows ge has to make an effort to get to know and understand the other disciples too so he can know better their abilities and what to expect from them.

    Finally he has learned that certain allies are too quick to act without thinking through consequences (much like he was before) An ancient artifact that could have protected the castle was destroyed as one example.
