Character Info

Profile

Click to expand.

Victor Stone's father saved him from a lab accident by fusing him with an experimental cybernetic platform. Since that day, he has unavoidably been Cyborg, part man, part machine, all glowing red heart. (Seriously, you can see it. There's a little window.) With his found family, the Titans, Victor fights both to save the world and to find his place in it.

Timeline

Timeline:
1994: Born to Silas and Elinore Stone in Detroit
1994-2007: Homeschooled according to an accelerated learning program that Silas was essentially making up as he went
2007: Enrolled in a public school at his own insistence, with an assist from his mother, and over his father's strenuous objections.
2008-10: Joined football team and quickly rose to a star role, earning an athletic scholarship to MSU.
2009: Elinore died.
2011: During a visit to his father at S.T.A.R. Labs, Victor was caught in an explosion that he wouldn't have survived if Silas hadn't grafted him into an experimental prosthetic life support system.
2012: Joined Titans, a group his father co-sponsored at least partly so that he would have an alternative to the college life he was now denied.
2017: Titans dissolve. Vic spends the intervening years at S.T.A.R. Labs, part employee, part test subject. At least he's given all the tech he could ever want to tinker with.

Personality

Click to expand.

Family Angst:
Victor has had a contentious relationship with his father at the best of times. His mother was an effective go-between, but if her early death weren't damaging enough, it also meant that there was no one to stop Silas and Victor's arguments from boiling over. Victor owes Silas his life, but also feels that because of his father's stifling influence (not to mention lax lab safety), he only got a few short years to be a normal kid.

Outgoing:
Vic is naturally extroverted and sociable, which makes it all the more upsetting when others react negatively to his mechanical appearance. So long as that pitfall is avoided, though, he's easy to get along with and eager to make friends.

Team Player:
The Titans were a found family for Victor at a time when he felt almost no connection to the one he was born into. He has been maddeningly isolated since the group disbanded. He remains intensely loyal to the group's members and will move mountains to try to reestablish and maintain their cohesive dynamic.

Character Sheet

Powers

Click to expand.

Built-In Weaponry:
Victor has a suite of powerful combat upgrades. Most commonly, he uses sonic blasts, a destructive but generally nonlethal option in a fight. He is also capable of emitting powerful lasers and electric blasts and projecting defensive force fields. If they will be useful, he can also attach blades, saws, drills, shields, and similar devices to his chassis.

Cyber Senses:
Victor's mechanical eye can perceive in several ways beyond visible light. He can see infrared and ultraviolet spectra, detect electromagnetic fields, and measure various forms of radiation. He also has powerfully enhanced hearing.

Cyborg Systems:
Victor's cybernetics give him strength and durability far beyond human norms. His reaction time and coordination are also enhanced by his systems' lightning-fast circuitry. Engines built into his body even allow him to fly. His tech is also adaptive, allowing him to modify it for specific circumstances, such as installing underwater breathing apparatus, specialized communication gear, or other custom tech. He can interface directly with most known computer systems with unsurpassed speed and accuracy. If damaged, his mechanical parts can be repaired or replaced.

Skills

Star Athlete:
Even before he became a cyborg, Cyborg was physically gifted. He retains the skills, coordination, and spatial reasoning necessary to excel at sports. He's also good at making snap tactical decisions and working with a team, skills he picked up on the gridiron and only honed as a Titan.

Tech Support:
Victor is a top-notch programmer and mechanic. (He doesn't really have a choice.) In addition to upgrading, modifying, and repairing his own systems, he is quite gifted at building, modifying, and even subverting machines and computers.

Resources

Click to expand.

S.t.a.r. Labs:
Not only does Victor have access to S.T.A.R. equipment through his dad (and his dad's guilt), he has been employed and essentially living there for years. As the only example of a successful integration with the tech platform he was grafted into, he is a unique source of invaluable data to them. This does cut both ways, though: Victor's augmentations are legally S.T.A.R. Labs property, and he quite literally can't live without them.

T-Car:
Victor has been at such loose ends without the Titans that he designed and built a custom high-performance car from scratch. Many of its parts are technically the property of S.T.A.R. Labs, but have they even noticed those pieces are missing? Probably not?

Titans:
In addition to his connections within the team itself, the members of the Titans tie Victor into a broader superheroic network. He has friends everywhere from the Batfam to Themyscira to alien planets.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Hackable:
Victor's cybernetics have all the same vulnerabilities as any mechanical, computer, or electronic system, and he depends on them to live. Short-term attacks on these vulnerabilities can physically hamper him, and more carefully planned attacks could conceivably kill him.

Isolation:
Vic can be sensitive about social rejection and susceptible to feeling isolated. He worries that people -- even his friends -- see him as a freak, only to be tolerated if he can't be avoided.
