Description

In Costume:



Name: Bernard "Travolta" Fenns AKA The Heart Attack
Ethnic Group/Race/Species: Human. Has a weak but audible Russian accent, which becomes heavier the more he talks.
Gender: Male
Age: 32
Date of Birth: July 10th.
Height: 6'0'', or 1.82 meters
Weight: 170 pounds or 77 kg
Hair color: Black
Eye color: Blue
Skin tone/color: Light but not pale
Appearance quirks/other: He will always generally wear rubber gloves and shoes.
Personality: Before becoming the Heart Attack, Bernard kept to himself and remained a kind hearted person. Afterwards, the constant pain inflicted on Bernard warped into a secret desire for others to feel his pain with him. Still however he tries to keep to himself and keeps a constant but poor effort to keep his psychotic desire at bay.
Quirks: Pulses of electricity jolt through his body literally all the time. This forces Bernard into a constant shaking and patterned breathing.
Likes/Hobbies: Bernard is unable to really enjoy anything other than seeing other living things electrocuted.
Dislikes/Nopes: Being touched and self pity.
Significant Other: Nope.
Family: They're out of the question. They do exist, but Bernard'd like it if they remained out of it.
Place of Residence: Where else? The famous Wing City.
Home: Since Bernard is unable to sleep he hasn't returned home since he became Heart Attack.
Education: Nothing too fancy. He did an above average amount of research on the whats-its of electricity when he became HA but nothing a diploma or a degree.
Profession/skills: Heart Attack has learnt many ways of using his skin-to-shock ability. Although being just physically+mentally average, he is no amateur when it comes to using his skill in clever ways. Still, he has far to go in terms of strategy and controlling the amp/voltage of his output. The closest thing he has to gadgets are the protective clothes he wears to prevent himself from electrocuting everything.
Abilities/Gadgets: Bernard Fenns AKA Heart Attack's heart is a biological electrical generator. It pumps blood as well as amps through his body. For some reason unable to kill him, Fenns constantly feels the pain of being electrocuted likening the pain to that of a constant heart attack. Heh. Get it? Anyway, because the electricity travels through his body he is able to transfer it simply by touching anything. This also means people.

Here are some details if you want a little know-how.

The lethal amperage is 100-200 milliamps according to everything. Above 200, it is possible to survive because of the way the heart reacts to being electrocuted at that amperage.
5000 volts is the average of what Bernard puts out. This can go an extreme amount higher if he forces it to, though. This would hurt as much as gripping onto an electric fence.
Heart builds up electricity. Fenns touches something, all the electricity built up will move through it. Voltage is controlled by Bernard, but he has little concentration to really properly harness it.
His heart generates enough electricity to constantly output 50 milliamps per second if he is touching something, however the forced generation increases the level of pain Bernard is in. Otherwise, his heart will build up roughly 3 milliamps per second unconsciously. This stops Bernard from simply discharging all his electricity on any mundane object, as touching things increases the speed of his heart.
Yes, if he had the right control over his ability he would be able to do things like jump start a heart or act as a battery. Frankly he doesn't so he can't.

There are other intricacies I've thought of, but I don't necessarily want to write an essay. Still if you have a question chuck it down.
Life Goal: Bernard has no real determination, but discharging his electricity (particularly onto living things) gives him relief, lowering the amount of pain he goes through.
Crippling weaknesses/Fears: His heart is pumping volts of potentially hundreds of milliamps through his body. Other than having the strength of an average human, Bernard is constantly in extreme pain. So much so that it has driven him almost insane and warps his problem-solving capabilities.
Backstory: Honestly I'd love to write some amazing backstory to Bernard and his persona Heart Attack, seeing the attention I paid to his abilities. Thing is I just don't think it matters. He definitely has one but it isn't particularly interesting as what made him snap was the event of his ability/curse. Other than that he was quite unremarkable. And to be quite honest I don't think Bernie would want or care if anyone knew who he was. Therefore I find this bit unnecessary. Maybe in a rp if it goes the right way.

Well hey that's my supervillian done. What have I got now? The anti-hero, the hero, the villian and the weird ass robot dude.
By the way I am a huge sucker for making themed characters make ridiculous themed puns. Heart Attack will be a little more grounded, but hey, don't find it a little too "shocking" if he makes some "electrifying" quips. Heh. Let's go.

So begins...

*THUD*

A body dropped the ground, lifeless in all areas but the eyes. They looked surprised and regretful, wide open like they were stunned to see the grimy pavement so close. The jittery human figure above him towered, but shambled to quickly put his gloves back on. A teardrop fell down onto the poor dead man's face as Bernard knelt down to converse with his latest victim. Of course, those who had read the page 7 column articles would know him as the "Heart Attack".
His voice was quiet, pulsing and stuttering as his body convulsed.

S-see? Now you under-derstand! I couldn't show you if I didn't... You wouldn't have believed me if I hadn't... I couldn't... You couldn't understand! Had to get it out... Had to get it out... Had to get it...
He continuously kept saying "Had to get it out" as he pulled the man down into an open grate to a sewer.

Nothing was more beautiful than the small amount of pain relief he got from a simple discharge. Nothing other than seeing someone else bear his pain with him. Ney, feeling, someone else.

Amid the wintry drifts that had built up in the alley where the serial killer known as Heart Attack was depositing his latest body, lurked a presence. "The Lords watch over all," a voice said ominously. It had come here for reasons know only to itself. A sense of nostalgia, perhaps, or a pilgrimage of some sort. "The blood on the snow will not be ignored. Today the Ice Lord cries for justice as the white snow is stained red. And I have been chosen as the instrument of that justice."

One of the snow drifts began to move, rearing up into a figure half again as tall as a man. Features on the top were reminiscent of a face, and lines of large snowballs formed powerful arms hefting an enormous broadsword coated in ice. "Repent now, servant of darkness, before you are struck down. Be it by my hand or another, I will see to it that justice is served."

Longtime residents of Wing City, of which there were a few despite the constant orbital bombardments and demonic incursions, might have recognized this voice as one of fair-mindedness, bearing the inexorable might of an advancing glacier. The one called Cryoface had returned, and woe to this human who had invited his wrath.

Bernard backed up against a wall as the ice monster built itself up. The cold made his body shudder, as his heart pumped faster, increasing the voltage that pulsed back and forth through his body. He hadn't noticed exactly where this thing came from, it certainly was not that cold a minute ago. Bernard was quite tall himself, but the apparition of this thing had far more presence than himself. Could Bernard fight this? Did he even want to?

R-R-Re-R-Re-
He clutched his chest as it contorted with pain.
R-Repenting is easy, snowman. But th-there will be no justice for mmmhmm, mhhmm...
Bernard's face turned to anguish over being unable to pronounce a simple "me".

After staying silent for just a moment, the city-titled Heart Attack suddenly bolted for the exit of the alley, hoping that the snowman would keep to itself. Unlike Cryoface, Heart Attack didn't have equipment or abilities equipped for battle. Instead what he had was a disease that could be quick-fixed through something that happened to be death.

Heart Attack stumbled into the wide open plaza, looking over his shoulder to see if the ice-man had followed him. Then without hesitation he yanked a brown coat from a clothes store throwing his previous victim's wallet into one of the employees' chest. It wasn't like Bernard needed energy or a place to sleep; he couldn't. Even though the electricity in Bernard's body had calmed down, it was still very much present for him. Stepping out of the clothes market to truly take in the sights, it had looked like some sort of damage had been dealt to this place recently.

Just like normal.

Just like normal indeed. The civilians here should be on their toes, places like these tend to be targets of celestial devastation. Lucky for them, though, the not so infamous Heart Attack had just had his fix and was at the very least sane for the time being. Attempting to hide himself from the ice-man if he decided to show up, the Heart Attack decided to stick around for a while, curious if he was being followed in the first place. For all he knew, Bernard could have been going crazy. He chuckled.

Imagine that.
