A quick, basic overview. I'll try to get more ideas into writing soon.
Not sure what a good weakness would be.
Name: Roland Stenberg
Concept: A Guardian of the Law
Appearance: When not on the job, he favors basic, functional clothing, such as long pants and plain shirts.
When on duty, he uses his personal armor. In appearence it's a mix of a SWAT armor and plate armors, matching modern tactical suits with heavy alloy plates. It is colored primarily with blues and blacks, and has a logo of the Cytek military on the front.
Trait 5: I Am The Law
Outside Athana lies a barren wasteland. Their city is the last and only bastion of humanity, and Roland will fight to protect it. But the greatest enemy is that within, and to combat it, the law must be upheld.
Trait 4: Iron Knight
Roland wades into battle clad in fairly heavy powered armor. Combined with his cybernetics, he's considerably stronger and faster than the average civilian, as you may expect of a Guardian. His armor and weapons are fully intregrated, with a heads-up display in the visor of his helment. He carries around a large shield, contructed of durable alloys to resist attack from whatever gets thrown at him. Both his armor and shield contain concelable hooks and straps for holding equipment. While he's trained in and can use a range of weapons and equipment, his main weapon is his right gauntlet. With nanotechnology, on command it can create a set of curved blades attached to either side of his arm and a plasma gun on top. While not a weapon of finesse, as the blades move with his whole upper arm, Roland is somewhat skilled in melee, focusing on powerful slashes or stabs. The plasma gun can vary most of its features for a range in firing strength and speed, from a burn to melting holes through walls, and single accurate shots or rapidly firing bolts of plasma. It also keeps his right hand open. His secondary arm is an advanced handgun, shaped like a futuristic revolver pistol. Rather than cartridges, its actually a railgun, using magnetic fields to propel small bits of metal at high speed. Drawing from a mass of alloy, nanites shape each round beforehand in the chambers, and the magnetic field can be varied for a range of different rounds and trajectories. As a backup, there's also a knife straped to his armor, to the left of his chest. He typically keeps a few grenades and spare equipment on hand, especially retraints.
Trait 3: Enforcement
Before recruitment in more military Cytek forces and eventually being made a Guardian, Roland stopped crime as an officer of the law. Besides an excellent knowledge of the laws, procedure, and security around Athana, he's trainedd in dealing with suspects, interrogating witnesses and his specialty, chasing down criminals.
Trait 1: No, the Law is the Law
No one is above the law, especially him. While proactive in his work, he steers clear of overstepping his athority, and follows orders. Sometimes, it gets in the way of handling the problem, especially when it stops him from following his gut.
Personality: His most defining trait would be determination; Roland works towards his goal regardless of odds. Honesty was a value drilled into by his father, while his job (And a fear-suppresing) cybernetic implant) has taught him bravery, particularly in combat. While he follows Cytek to protect the city, more than that he wants to uphold the law. If there was a better system, he would definitely consider it. While he gets no enjoyment from death, it's often been proven the only method and so when he's forced to he'll take down criminals without a second thought. Roland seeks to eliminate Blue Sky; even though there message seems nice, he's seen what they're resort to, and taking them down would send a message to the other groups they inspire. While ruthless in his execution of the law, Roland really is just taking the course of action he feels is best. The city really doesn't know what's best.
Background: Roland's involvement started when he joined law enforcement right out of school. This was for several reasons; he'd always had an affinity towards physical activities and active work. It was also partially for his view of the world. His parents sometimes told him stories of the war in Athana's early years, and of the world outside. But most important of all was when his mother died when he was thirteen, a victim of a bombing by some of the cities "freedom fighters". Already skewed towards them, his view of the terrorists theatening the city only slid further away during his years fighting them on the streets. He's seen plenty of people die to criminals. With relentless endurance and strong will, he made it into the anti-terrorism unit, and carried out several raids on bases or suspects. Before long, Cytek took noticed and put him into the Guardian program. While he mostly deals with whatever missions he's handed, he also likes to apply to aid actions with the departments he used to work with, where he still has friends.
