Jericho West


NEW YORK LEGION MARSHAL —

 

Jericho is not a man to be trifled with. A former Colonel in the US Marines he's survived and commanded countless missions and now he had chosen to lend his experience and skills to a cause he believes in... the Vanguard.

 

ABILITIES

 

HEAT ABSORPTION

 

Jericho can absorb heat via a permanent field that surrounds his body. Fire cannot touch him, some of it becomes extra energy for his body the rest is deflected. He can use fire or intense heat to help his body heal faster and increase his physical strength. He can grab a red hot poker and suck the heat energy right out of it turning it cool, in fact he can absorb five square feet of heat energy per second up to a maximum of fifty square feet.

 

Can he use all the energy? No. Jericho can only utilize a fraction of the heat energy he absorbs, the rest is deflected but not all of it can just be tossed aside. A portion of it is diverted and that energy is usually forced into the solid objects around him but of course the amount they can store is finite. Eventually a wall will crumble, the ground beneath his feet with heat to a point that it melts away. Ideally, standing in large body of water would allow him divert a large amount of heat energy.

 

Jericho's physical strength can only ever increase to up four times normal but it fades fast, usually only lasting a few minutes.

 

If he absorbs heat, he can channel it into healing a wound but he needs to be strong enough in the first place to use the power. If he's too damaged, the strain of absorbing the heat itself could kill him.

 

DIVERSION ATTACK

 

Can he absorb heat and reflect it as an attack? Yes, but he has to touch a person. He can channel the power into, say, his hand, turning it white hot but he'd have to touch a person to cause any damage, and while using his power he can't move around very quickly. HE CANNOT PROJECT A FORCE OF HEAT.

 

After he absorbs any heat, he can only utilize it's energy for a few minutes. It burns up quickly. Usually to use it as a weapon he has to be taking in energy as he uses it.

 

SKILLS

Marksman, Sniper, Close Combat expert, Ballistics, Gunsmithing, Survival Training, Repelling, Tactical expert.

 

LANGUAGES

Can speak, English, Spanish, some Arabic and few words of Cantonese.

 

APPEARANCE

The right side of his face bears the scars of war, marring his bold handsome features. His wavy hair is a light brown and he has blue eyes. He stands 5'11" with a strong athletic build.

 

PERSONALITY

A tactician through and through Jericho craves a challenge, little else interests him which is why he took on the position of New York's Marshal. There's always some war on the horizon and he aims to come out on top. He's gruff and blunt. A man of few words but what one's he does say are chosen carefully.

 

HISTORY

Born in Germany, he spent the first five years of his life in Europe before his military parents were transferred back to the States. An army brat he pursued a military career and became a marine. As a soldier his missions were legendary and as a colonel his campaigns were inspiring.

 

After the Resonance he tried to assist in maintaining the failing military but then like many others like him ended up working for the powerful factions that took place of government. He was not part of the Vanguard prior to the Resonance.
