BOLO is a federal marshal with only two years of service who is kidnapped and subjected to a criminal drug trial while protecting a witness. As a result, he gained the ability to control and become a living shadow; but he wanted nothing to do with the power. However, his mentor in the program still recommended he leave lest awkward questions be asked. Deciding to try his hand in the super hero game, he attempts to project himself as a skilled normal with bolos as a gimic (also taken from actual LEO terminology BOLO) using his previous LEO contacts to track down fugitives that corrupt law enforcement might have let get away.

Personality

Click to expand.

Gregarious:
Jovian does well in crowds. He draws energy from a team, but he doesn't NEED them but does better in general when he has a chance to do well. He is not dependant on others but seeks out their company when possible.

Romantic:
Secretly, he is a romantic at heart (in the classical standpoint) and enjoys helping the under dog, lost causes, impossible odds, chivalry and many other things from time gone by. On the other hand, he doesn't believe that most of these things exist in the real world.

Anti Hero:
Jovian has become very skeptical of the government after what happened to S.H.I.E.L.D. but he has formally made many decisions to stay on the side of the angels. Ultimately, Jovian is very Pragmatic Good and while he doesnt full out believe the ends justify the means, he is a lot more flexible on the means than a lot of heroes otherwise should be.

Character Sheet

Powers

Click to expand.

He can create shadow constructs of bolos, a uniform or small simple objects like locks or restraints that can hold up to five tons of strength for 30 minutes.

Skills

Click to expand.

Bolo:
He was always exceptional with a bolo, and has spent the last year honing it to professional levels. He knows how to use the weapon. If he were to eventually start using trick bolos, he would take to them naturally.

Boy Scout:
He knows the outdoors, rope work, actual underwater basket weaving, rifles, archery, survival, tracking and several elements of how to make do with things in odd circumstances.

Federal Marshal:
He knows how to track people, and was trained by some of the best. He is also highly observant of his surroundings and has learned how to observe human nature and think like his quary, working suspects and detecting lies.

Hand To Hand:
He had some training in ROTC, the scouts and as a marshal. He has frankly picked up a lot more working as a bounty hunter and super hero, and can hold his own against above average opponents but he hasnt yet had formal martial arts training.

Secret Service:
Jovian has the memories of a dead insane version of himself from another dimension inside of his head. This dopple had many similar skills but a greater mastery of his power as well as body guard, VIP handling, statecraft and protocol that comes with being a senior secret service member including some understanding of 'who is who' though these memories are of another world so not always accurate.

Resources

Click to expand.

Bounties:
Bounty hunting can be quite lucrative and he has a few exclusive contracts on the side with elements of the Marshals that want things done discretely. Word has gotten around and he has a relatively clean reputation despite his cynicism.

Contacts:
Bolo has a lot of contacts in Federal Law Enforcement, New York Law enforcement, and super hero community. Since becoming a vigilante, he has developed a some in the street or low level criminal community as well.

Equipment:
He has a cache of high grade firearms. He also, thanks to working with Porter, has a suit which can moderately protect him from firearms and lightly protect him from kinetic damage. The helmet on the suit has very low grade night vision, radio and very light audio sensors as well.

Inherited Wealth:
Due to shenanigans involving a world wide treasure hunt and taking down an organized occult crime cartel, Jovian has 'won' a hundred year old fortune maintained in waiting by the Nazca Brotherhood. The fortune is worth a little over a billion dollars, but due to the way it was held, it will take time to 'unlock' in paperwork etc, and frankly the brotherhood is watching Jovian to see what he does further. As it is, he has a cash income of about 12 million dollars a month. The perks of this wealth are a large number of properties, board memberships, club memberships and associations that he has 'inherited' from the previous owner. He also has a large amount of untraceable crypto currency he obtained on his own.

Nazca Brotherhood:
A group of occult practioners with small chapter houses all over the world who are quite secretive and quite adept at manipulating events. They are nominally allies but will have two requests for every request that Jovian makes of them and both are feeling each other out at the moment.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Cosmic Wound:
Bad mojo to cosmically aware beings or very magically sensitive people there is something BAD about his magical 'smell' not magic potential but a blight on creation itself. This is not actual evil.

Lasers:
Focused light attacks, especially lasers tend to do more damage to him than most. Note, "Flash" attacks such as flashbangs and other things that overwhelm the senses have no greater effect on him than most.

Secret Identity:
He has a lot of family in fairly important law enforcement or military positions that might have blow back if his vigilante activities become public.

Memory Blackouts:
If he uses his power too much (except concealment) or accesses the memories of his dopple too much he loses track of time and ends up in places he doesnt remember going.

Wackaloons:
Organized crime and treasure conspiracy hunters think that he is the heir to the fortune he has (and they are right). He is seen as more fair game for being targeted since he won the 'metaphorical' lottery rather than earning the money himself.
