Francis Otah is a ten year old boy living Paragon City, Rhode Island, a kid with a "borrowed" suit of tank busting powered armor and a found Rikti war mace. His parents don't know that he's out fighting crime with these things. He'll probably get in a lot trouble when he's found out. BACK STORY NEEDS TO BE FLESHED OUT MORE

How His Powers Work

Well, the powered armor is actually pretty basic. It's a 1.7 tonne, chobham plated, turbine powered, Rikti smashing can of whupass with ducted fans and a full AR suite--Heinlein would have loved it. In it, Frances can laugh off most of the minor stuff. It doesn't have a gun to match though, so Francis mostly uses the suit's great strength to deal out justice and fair play.

One day, while wandering around the bombed out ruins of Boomtown, Francis found a Rikti war mace. The mace, through a combination of poorly understood force fields and spatiotemporal shenanigans, can seem very light, well-balanced and easy to swing but, just an instant before impact, it strikes with all the momentum of a runaway train. This weapon was made for Rikti troops to stave in tank armor, overload energy based defensive screens or bash away whole groups of opposing infantry.

The mace, perhaps as a consequence of the inertia games described above, also allows wielders to teleport themselves or others.

Personality, Mannerisms, Quirks

Francis is not at all bothered about his name, although some of the other kids have teased him about it. This might be due to the fact that his father is naturalized citizen from Nigeria and his younger brother and sister have Yoruba derived names.

He is also a bright, imaginative, hard working and precocious student, having skipped forward a grade into his schools gifted program. He loves space, robots, aliens, dinosaurs, archeology, science, foreign languages and all manner of nerdy things. He is a gifted child but not of superhuman or mutant intelligence.

Frances is 10 years old and his world is an optimistic one full of wonders where all problems are solvable with enough work. This makes him naive but at the same time, like children sometimes can, he can cut past all the cynical rationalizations of adults and demand the truth and simplicity.

His helmet hides his face and his armor's PA system can disguise his voice so he plays at being an adult. But he knows he's breaking laws and knows his parents would be very angry and worried if they knew he was doing this. As such he's overcompensates a bit on the conservative side and tends to avoid other heroes from befriending him and discovering his secret. He also has no registration papers and is thus an illegal hero but as yet, the police haven't found this out.
