Split/Second (Real Name: Winston Clemens)

Winston Clemens had already deal with the hardships in life.

Born into a somewhat poor, son from an ex-Black Panther, he learned fast to solve problems with all he could. He learned some fighting and also gone for school for study. He wasn’t good enough for one of the big colleges, so he gone for the local community college for a Engeneering Major and then for the Army.

He served at places like Angola and Irak, on all he had worked with the bomb squad. His proficiency on disarming bombs gave him what he could to better his life, and as soon he was honorably discharged from Army, he came back to his city, and got into Police’s Bomb Squad.

But this could be his death sentence.

A crazy Verne attacked the city and put a Vernetech bomb on it. The local capes isolated the place, but they had not the knowledge on how to deal with explosives. So the Bomb Squad was called.

A Vernetech device, even from a D-Class Verne, is a great problem. So Winston chose to deal with this by himself.

Bad idea.

As soon he started to analyse it, he noted that the countdown gone fast. He dealt with it as good as possible, but he failed.

The bomb exploded.

And he had his breakthorugh, whem he thought on how to get away with the building, as it was only him there.

He noticed the time dilation and he started to run away from the shrapels released by the bomb. He was hit by some of them, but if wasn’t the breakthrough, he would be made into mincemeat.

He got out just in time to see the building collapsing and getting into the ground.

He was discharged from Police and it was when the local CAI team, Prop, asked for his help.

He accepted, choosing as capename the time he had to run away from that bomb: a Split-Second.

He is very touchy on racism or otherwise hate-speak: as the son of an ex-Black Panther, he learned to fight the fight against prejudice.

He is an specialist on mechanics and all kind of engeneering things: he never commited the same error he did on his breakthrough again.

Prop (Real Name: Jake Haigh)

Born from an English family that migrated to US for work some years before The Event, Jake always played rugby. He played hard, he studied hard, and he lived always by the rugby principles. It was when he was 16 and he was playing a match in the college rugby league…

And the Event happened…

When he woke up, he started to hear the sound of a small airplane falling down straight to field’s grandstand!

He just thought on jump to scream to people to run, but he just flew and got to the plane, holding it and put him in the ground, saving them.

He looked around and saw how much problems The Event provoked.

He looked to the field.

And it was the last time he played rugby with common people.

But soon he found some fellows to help people as a breakthrough, a cape, under the name of his rugby position.

Prop.

Now he lives under the effigy of rugby principles for his action as cape. He’s the leader of a local CAI team, linked with SPAT teams and police from a small-to-medium city.

He has a good life and can use his powers for good, after 10 years from the Event.

But rugby is still into his mindframe.

Colocation (Real Name: Susan Ma)

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water.

Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup;

You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle;

You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.

Now water can flow or it can crash.

Be water, my friend.” (Bruce lee)

Being the only chinese family in the region doesn’t made life easy for the Ma. They came from Kowloon for the humanities college, the father Sidney (Shi’en) Ma to give classes on Chinese language, Confucionist philosophy and so. But the little Susan Ma always felt himself the outsider: a small girl, single child, she needed to grew independently to survive somewhat.

When emigrating to US, Susan had to deal with all the bullies that picked her abnd bullied her. She discovered that “Be water, my friend” interview from Bruce Lee and she chosed to be water, to heal or to damage, if needed.

And what helped her to cope with the bullying was a local Sifu on Jeet Kune Do, Bruce Lee’s martial arts. He learned exactly what Susan needed and wanted. She learned that be water means to flow and find a way out, preferably without damage, by also to save energy to strike fast, hard and full. She started to read all she could about Bruce Lee, not about the actor or the martial artist, but the philosopher: she wanted to understand why, if he had the One-Inch Punch, why he didn’t used it to deal with bullies.

She understood, and she calmed herself. She became a vocal activist for the minorities rights. She then gone for the local college for a Major on Humanities, with Minors on Philosophy and Psychology. And she became a Sifu by herself on Jeet-Kune Do. As part of Jeet Kune Do, she mingled Yin and Yang, East and West, trying to grow.

It was when, during The Event craziness, some local Nazi-like punks tried to destroy the academy where she trained all the time, as police needed to deal with the super-punks. After stabbing her Sifu in the chest, they gone for her.

She didn’t held herself.

He became water, a tsunami to defeat those punks.

She had her breakthrough.

She discovered that she could “jump” almost to any place, and she mingled it fast with her martial style. She needed only to hit the first one to discover her now was water, but in its destructive power: she blasted a punch that turned the guy sternum into smithereens, exploding his heart, rendering dead…

The others tried to run, but Susan was more effective on contain them without killing. She brought them to Justice, but there was no way to save her Sifu: he died on bleeding, even with all efforts of her focusing on estabilizing chi flow to heal him.

She was freed as they saw it as a hate crime, the attempted manslaughter exchanged into social services.

She was found sometime after by the other guys from her team now and she happily joined the CAI team.

Susan was known previously as Shuǐ (Water), but in time his Speed of the Dragon power became her main staple to find places where people where and then, using the Water Flow, destroy debris to free ways to people get out, she decided to change her capename to Colocation.

She became a very important Sifu, giving personal defense classes for minorities and also teaching classes for policemen.

She became water.
