Voltage Wolf is a villain I created to get the calm, collected, planning type villain. I heavily based him off Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, and Wesker from the Resident Evil series.
Voltage Wolf is confident in his abilities as a legendary soldier and agent. He can be cocky, but he usually gets the job done. He is a tough commanding individual when it comes to business, but when the days over, he can be a fun and nice person. He has pledged allegiance to Arachnos, but retains individuality through Shadow Unit.
Voltage Wolf can control and manipulate electricity in multiple ways. He is well trained in the art of close combat, and has perfected his control of electricity.
Voltage Wolf can send surges of electricity through his fists and in to his enemies, making for a shocking surprise. He can increase his power by tapping in to nearby power sources such as power lines.
Using electricity, Voltage Wolf can wrap his body in electricity, deflecting various attacks. Bullets are zapped away by the attack, and punches and stabs are moved aside. Combined with the defensive abilities of his Shadow Suit, Voltage Wolf is a formidable opponent.
Voltage Wolf is a legendary soldier and agent, veteran of over countless missions.
Voltage Wolf's date and place of birth is unknown, but the date is estimated to be in the early 1900's. As soon as he was born, he was stolen from his parents and put in to an experimental training program called Wolf. The program was run by the U.S. Government in order to create the perfect soldier. Many years of training developed Voltage Wolf, as well as others in to expert fighters. These soldiers were nicknamed Wolves, and they were the best of the best. Despite being young and small, they could easily outpower and outshoot a normal soldier. The Wolves were put through intense physical and mental training, and were outfitted with cybernetics.
World War II
The Wolves had their first mission in World War II. They dropped in to Normandy, France by parachute, and supported the Allied forces on the beaches. Many of the Wolves were only around age ten at this time. After clearing the beaches of Normandy, the Wolves were split up in to squads that went with various Allied regiments. Voltage Wolf fought in many of the battles of WW2, and saw many of his comrades die, Wolf or otherwise. Many of the Wolves were wiped out, but those who were tough enough to survive led the Allies to victory.
Shortly after World War II, a United States special operations group called Shadow Unit was formed. Like Wolf, Shadow Unit recruited elite soldiers, as well as superpowered agents. Many of the former Wolves joined Shadow Unit, and became the founding members. Voltage Wolf was one of these founding members. Shadow Unit adopted a naming system that consisted of the agents specialty, ability, or other trait, and the name of an animal. Despite the amount of Wolves in the Unit, only Voltage Wolf, who was legendary at that time, was worthy to hold the code name of Wolf. He was also the only Shadow Unit operative that held a one word codename. Between the founding of Shadow Unit and the Korean War, Wolf held countless mission completions under his belt.
The Korean War was Shadow Unit's first chance to show the U.S. government that they meant business. Multiple squads were put in to North Korea to complete various operations. Wolf led a small squad of elite operatives in to N.K., and completed two different missions. One was to do recon on a North Korean base, which involved staying hidden in the same spot for three days without food or water. The other was the assassination of a North Korean officer. Wolf slit his throat personally. The Shadow Units first show was a success, as no operatives were lost, and all missions they were put on were complete.
The same squad he led in Korea accompanied Wolf in to Vietnam. They were to plant explosives in a Vietcong camp. The operation was going off without a hitch when a Vietcong patrol came upon them. The ambush scattered the squad. To save himself, he threw one of his own comrades in to the line of fire. His entire squad was slaughtered, and Wolf escaped with minor injuries. He got out through a Shadow Unit helicopter. It is still unknown to others what happened to Wolf and his squad.
April 26, 1986. Wolf was to infiltrate the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. It was a seemingly normal mission for Wolf that turned out to have dire consequences. Wolf discovered that Reactor One had a melt down at an earlier date that the Soviet Union did not reveal. He was outside when Reactor Four exploded. The initial blast threw Wolf in to powerlines, where he was electrocuted. Before the explosion and radiation could effect him, Wolf disappeared. He appeared on the outskirts of Pripyat where he was picked up by a Shadow Unit recovery squad. Wolf was taken out of action for a few months, and was given time to regain his senses.
After the Chernobyl Incident, Wolf returned to the United States for some rest and relaxation. He visited New York City, and soon found out he had unforeseen powers. After accidentally bumping in to a power box, power surged from the box to Wolf and from Wolf to the box. All power in New York City suddenly went out, and Wolf found himself covered in electric armor. Power was restored to NYC, and he went to the Shadow Unit base. He found out he could control and manipulate electricity. Shadow Unit saw his new powers, and renamed him "Voltage Wolf". He was promoted to second in command of Shadow Unit.
After his promotion, he spent time creating a new stealth suit for Shadow Unit. The suit, called the Shadow Suit Mk. 1, allowed wearers protection from the elements and other attacks, as well as the ability to bend light around them, and become invisible. The suit takes a dark blue and black appearance, mimicking the dark blue of their dress uniform. The suit can be easily modified for specialization. A mask is also available for it, with night vision and thermal goggles, as well as a gas mask.
Voltage Wolf also found out that he stopped aging. The electric shock that gave him his powers shocked his body in to a state where it no longer aged. As he lived on, the Shadow Unit commander died, and Voltage Wolf took the duty of leading Shadow Unit. Most of the Shadow Unit founding members died, leaving Wolf as the oldest operative in the Unit.
Shadow Unit had a minor involvement in the Gulf War, with Voltage Wolf commanding a single unit in to the Middle East.
Shadow Unit helped defend Earth from the Rikti. An operative of Shadow Unit joined Omega Team, and entered the portal to the Rikti homeworld. It is unsure if the operative is alive or dead. Shadow Unit had a large hand in fending off the Rikti.
Sometime after the Rikti War, Voltage Wolf met with Lord Recluse. Lord Recluse convinced Voltage Wolf to bring Shadow Unit under the control of Arachnos. The terms of both sides are unknown, but Voltage Wolf was happy with the results. He went to the Shadow Unit base and recalled every agent to the single location. It was then he announced their defection, and that they would follow him or die. Many agreed for some reason, and those that didn't faced the fate Voltage Wolf mentioned. After packing up their gear and equipment, Shadow Unit hijacked a cargo freighter, and sailed for the Etoile Islands. Lord Recluse and Arachnos welcomed them with open arms.
-Voltage Wolf is the last remaining soldier of the Wolf Project.
-One of Voltage Wolf's signature techniques is placing bullets between his fingers, and using his electric powers to fire the bullets from his hands.
