Motivation: Thrill-seeker. Chronis endorses his own brand of mischievous super-heroics. He's the consummate prankster, having an absolute blast in annoying & humiliating bad guys. Chronis enjoys toying with opponents far too much, he often delays finishing them off quickly.
Taboo: Chronis absolutely refuses to willingly kill someone, he instead prefers to trap his foes in embarassing circumstances. When forced to directly attack someone, he always uses non-lethal methods.
Identity: Like many superheroes, Chronis protects his civilian identity.
Description & Personality
Dennis is a physically unremarkable young man in his early twenties. He is fair-skinned & wears his red-blonde hair in a somewhat disheveled crew cut. Even with his powers coming from his suit, he rightfully thinks that every superhero could profit from a modicum of physical fitness, so he recently hit the gym & undertook self-defense classes. He simply doesn't want to be completely helpless without the suit. The Chronosuit itself is a sleek piece of high-tech, a close-fitting shell painted in an urban-camo pattern. When the "Time Warper" function is activated, the environment his slowed down to a crawl from Chronis' pov; unfortunately, all environmental sounds are slowed down to a monotone drone, and his own speech becomes just a "blip", so he's effectively rendered deaf & mute.
Chronis was initially a somewhat nerdy & slighty shy guy, who finally found his outlet as a superheroic prankster. This, combined with his financial independence and the results of his gym training, substantially boosted his confidence, so he's considerably more outgoing & assertive now. He's still fairly naive, though, thinking super-heroism is all fun & games - until he finds out that reality can be a very harsh mistress.
Dennis Joseph Cauldray is a brilliant young scientist who, after a fairly unremarkable college career, ended up as a freelance consultant for all kinds of tech-firms, with his fore most employer being Fabricator's Inc. This grants him a steady income & cozy living, but he felt still unsatisfied, something was missing in his life. His personal scientific obsession was quantum mechanics, gravity and the concept of time travel (or at least -manipulation). Dennis hit the jackpot when he got his hands on the same research data which resulted Downtime's timebelt. Combining this information with his own research, and utilizing Fabricator's services, he created the first prototype of his Chronosuit. After several test runs, and improving the suit with gravity-based technology of his own design, it was finally ready and the new hero Chronis hit the streets.
Normally, I design original characters around a concept, with the actual game traits being dependent on this. Yet in Chronis' case I strayed from this path, him being clearly built around his powers, so his backstory & personality are admittedly somewhat simplistic/stereotypical. Mea Culpa, but I simply wanted a mischievous speedster who can zoom in unseen, give a whole room of baddies a wedgie and leave equally unseen, all done in a split second ("Re-Arrange"). I also wanted him to be good at supporting a team: He can boost his teammates' speed with "Go-Mo", set up foes for attack with "Slo-Mo" or directly assist his allies with his Teamwork advantage.
Chronis's "Spacetime-Teleporter" is an easily concealable device the size of of cigarette pack. It can be used for a one-shot teleport to a previously set-up location (typically a hideout with the Chronosuit in place). It's normally used by Dennis in his civilian identity as an emergency measure to quickly get to his suit. His "Temporal Commlink" Feature represents a commlink that can speed-up/slow-down signals, enabling communication with his teammates' commlinks.
