Telescoping Staff. Stick wields a telescoping fighting staff, a mere two feet while compressed and up to 6 feet fully extended. It is made of unknown materials that render it as strong as steel but weighing in at only 15 pounds. One end of the staff is weighted and is slightly bulbous.

Telepathy. Silver has a low level of telepathy for a variety of effects, which works well against weak-minded people. She is able to join her mind with those of her companions Stick, Gideon, and El Tigre with little effort. She is able to completely control someone's mind, overriding his or her motor skills and mental faculties for as long as she concentrates. She is also able to make herself seem invisible to up to one person at a time for as long as she concentrates. She can induce sleep in individuals (duration depends upon the target). She is able to do surface scans of people's minds without their being aware, as well as probes to find out specific information. Silver's Telepathy is a still burgeoning power, which seems to have no limit.

Animal Transformation. Silver is a shapechanger able to change her shape into a variety of animals, which include all of the following: bear, lion, wolf, horse, snake, cat, dog, rat, monkey, fish, and eagle. Her transformation is a complete one for all intents and purposes, except that she retains her own intelligence and ability to speak. She is unable to access her telepathy while in animal form. She is completely comfortable in animal form and can retain that shape almost indefinitely. A complete transformation takes 6 seconds to accomplish. Silver has learned a trick with her power that allows her to transform one of her arms into the bear form while the rest of her body remains in human form.

History: Very little of Silver's history is known at this point. Her partner is the man known only as Stick. How she came into her shapeshifting power is unknown at this point.

Silver did spend a fair amount of time studying at the University of Toronto and University of Winnipeg getting her degree as a licensed psychologist.

Agility: El Tigre's agility is incredibly high, allowing him to perform very complex acrobatics and gymnastics far exceeding anything a professional human gymnast could accomplish.

Strength: El Tigre has the maximum human strength someone of his height and build can acquire without entering into the superhuman ranks. El Tigre's lower body strength is covered below.

El Tigre uses his leaping strength as a form of fighting using kicks against an opponent strong enough to shatter bulletproof glass.

Weapons. El Tigre possesses two weapons of unusual design and strength. His first is a blade made of materials granting it a material strength equivalent to solid stone. Its edge is able to cut through most any material as hard as solid stone. His second weapon is a Flash Gordon-looking blaster that fires red magical energies powerful enough to punch through brick.

History: El Tigre is a first generation mutant. Little is known about his parents, except that they gave him up at a very young age. He was raised in various foster homes all across the U.S. He settled in Winnipeg a few years ago and decided to make his life there, finding work at a local gym.

Some time ago, Joaquin met Gideon, a down on his luck street person whom he took in. The two were fast friends and became inseparable. Their relationship and exactly how they met is not been revealed yet.

Personality: El Tigre has the soul of a hero. He is quick to protect an innocent from being hurt, but is reluctant to help others if they are not in danger. El Tigre trusts no one but his best friend Gideon. He is very much a loner, but will often take the spotlight in any fight. He is very confident in his abilities, and will often throw caution to the wind.

 

 

GIDEON

Real Name: Gideon Katharta

Height: 5'11"

Weight: 170 lbs.

Eyes: Blue

Hair: Blonde

Aliases: None

Occupation: None

Base of Operations: Winnipeg, Canada

Legal Status: No citizenship

Place of Birth: Somewhere in Europe

Marital Status: Single

Fighting Prowess: Gideon has a slightly better than average fighting prowess, as a natural instinct.

Dexterity: Gideon has slightly better-than-average dexterity.

Strength: Gideon has average strength.

Constitution: Gideon has a high level of constitution, the equal of a marathon runner.

Intelligence: Gideon is incredibly smart, with a level of intelligence equal to top scientists.

Senses: Gideon has highly attuned senses that are the peak of normal human's.

Psyche: Gideon has incredible levels of psyche, able to avoid higher levels of possession, hypnotism, or other forms of mental control.

Powers/Abilities/Possessions: Gideon's main power is his control of magical energies. He is able to use it for a few effects.

Mystical Energy Creation. Gideon is able to mold and form ambient magical energies into force blasts (of a level able to break brick, aluminum, or high strength plastics) or a variety of shapes such as shields (equivalent to bulletproof glass), spheres, and boxes. The energy has a green, almost fluorescent, color to it. Shapes have a life of 90 seconds unless he concentrates on them.

Self-Healing. Gideon channels ambient magical energies to heal his body from damage. This is automatic and does not require bed rest (although this greatly increases the amount it heals). Short of losing a limb, Gideon can heal from most wounds within hours.

Magical Awareness. Gideon is attuned to the magical spectrum, and able to use this to detect when other magical beings are within a couple of hundred feet.

Damage Transfer. Gideon is able to absorb damage from others into himself, at which point his own self-healing takes over.

History: Very little is known about Gideon. He was born somewhere in Europe. He eventually ended up in Winnipeg where he met Joaquin Ramirez. His relationship with Joaquin is a close one, and there appears to be some sort of link or debt between the two of them.

Personality: Gideon is a secretive person, and almost seems to have his own personal agenda within the SYMKA group. Although he has a deep friendship with El Tigre, he keeps many things hidden from him. In combat, he is focused, but will retreat if the odds are against him. Gideon is not heroic, and will not directly help someone if it interferes with his own goals.
