The Maven

Image
Destined to become a costumed hero by family history and tradition, Isaiah Jackson is today's Maven, a man of unparalleled intellect and mastery of martial and esoteric arts. Since the War of Independence, The Maven has been a masked figure protecting his nation's interests from the shadows.

Each Maven hands down all the learning they have to the next in line, their knowledge and experience aiding the next as he walks the path of many before him.

To represent the unearthly intellect, martial arts mastery and the esoteric skills he has, The Maven is a Level 25 character, to show that not all Level 25's need be world-beating powerhouses. For The Maven think Macgyver meets Ozymandias or Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt, with a dash of Ethan Hunt in superhero attire.

Warfang

Image
Warfang is HISS' primary enforcer. Ex-Mexican special forces operative Miguel Santos drifted through a variety of close protection jobs. When a HISS hit-squad attacked the Cartel member he was guarding, Miguel was badly injured. HISS science brought him back from the brink and the shadowy organisation offered him a new purpose which Miguel accepted without hesitation.

Warfang typically operates alongside a cadre of HISS troops, and he relishes every chance to go to to toe with a super. While he is no 'true believer', he is loyal to HISS as they have given him a direction missing since his days in the military, and they have the perfect superhuman living weapon.

HISS Agent

Image
HISS is a nefarious power with tendrils reaching across the globe. Individual cells operate on all continents Each cell operates alone or occasionally with others, working towards the organisation's greater goal, even if that brings them into conflict with other HISS groups. This is exactly as the high leadership wants it.

The backbone of HISS paramilitary forces are the Agents, Shock Troopers and Precepts. Squads or platoons of HISS troopers are only deployed when needed, and always with a clear purpose or goal to be achieved, even at those cost of those self-same soldiers.

Kitsune

Image
Kitsune rounds out the 'core five' heroes as I think of them (although my roster for the Covenant of Justice is much deeper than just these few as you'll see).

On the run from the Fox Clan of ninjas, Kitsune has been set up and has fled to the USA. In San Gabriel the former assassin found allies in the form of the Covenant of Justice as she first tries to understand why she was set up, and what her place will be in the world.

In Supers Unlimited terms, Kitsune is an Infiltrator (one of eight roles outlined in the book). She is Level 20 (which is mid-range for a Super Character). I'll start to show how those things can be applied to a Character in an upcoming post, and how easy it is to create a Super like Kitsune or others in the game.
