Silver Arrow

Status: Semi-Active
System: Originally free-form; currently GURPS 4e and BESM 3e

Silver Arrow is a super-archer intended for a superhero game along the lines of DC's heroic tales, although the rotating chair of GMs tended to throw in more supernatural nemeses than superhuman. I guess that'd be part of the curse of the team name: we got saddled with "Defenders", after the Marvel superteam of the same name that dealt primarily with supernatural threats. As can be guessed by the name, Silver Arrow was inspired, ICly and OOCly, by DC's Green Arrow and Marvel's Hawkeye, among other archer characters. Later in his career, I added wings similar to the Golden and Silver Age Hawkman's; ICly, they were directly inspired by the Hawks'. Power-level, he was among the weakest of the group; this kinda led him to have a more authoritative personality. This personality led to a personality conflict with the team's lone wolf anti-hero (Wolverine wannabe).

Over time, Arrow gravitated into the leadership position of the group (the Defenders). He recently officially relinquished the role, but he still ended up taking charge when it seems no one else is stepping up to the plate.

Silver Arrow is one of those characters whose backstory evolved the more I played him. I originally had him as a high school student (senior) whose parents were generally "not there", enabling him to go out and patrol the city. Later on, it was revealed that his cousin was a voodoo priestess in New Orleans, and that his parents actually knew of his "extracurricular" activities.

One little item I worked into Arrow's backstory was that he was a latent telekinetic; this was simply intended as justification for why the non-aerodynamic trick arrows in his arsenal managed to stay in flight; Arrow was completely oblivious to this fact, and in fact believed himself to not have powers. One of the GMs who prefered to emphasize "super" over "hero" wanted to make him a full-fledged super who could create an energy bow that could penetrate Kryptonian skin and hit targets up to a mile away. I felt that would kill the appeal the character had for me; I wanted to emphasize "hero" rather than "super" - to quote R. J. Brande from Legion of Super-Heroes #0, "It's not what you can do, it's what you choose to do."

I have three different sheets for him because of the way the game shifted. We started as a freeform game, but to avoid endless "Yes, I hit you!"/"No, you didn't!" arguements, we drifted to a more systemized form of play. I and some of the other players prefered GURPS, so we made our sheets in that; I found it suited my vision of him nicely. Others prefered Tri-Stat/BESM; I still don't grok how damage scales in that, so I'm not exactly happy with how that sheet ended up.

Recently, while I was net.comatose and unable to attend, the superhero game folded. Would I play Arrow again? Definitely.

Update: Recently, the game was rebooted, and the GM decided to go with GURPS, 1000 points. The GURPS sheet below represents the most current version of the character. This game didn't last very long due to others not liking the GURPS system.

Silver Arrow

Real Name: Hugh Burroughs
Occupation: Student, part-time crimefighter
Dual Identity: Secret
Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no criminal record.
Other Aliases: None.
Place of Birth: Dixon City, California.
Marital Status: Single.
Known Relatives: Edward (father); Belinda (mother); Shaniqah "Cleo" Patra (cousin).
History: When Hugh Burroughs was seven, his life was saved by one of the heroes of that bygone age. After he grew up, having seen the Age of Heroes come to an end, Hugh decided to create an identity for himself when he got older. A talented, self-trained archer with a natural aptitude for mechanics, Hugh decided to combine the two with the heroic identity of Silver Arrow. He doesn't admit it, but he was inspired by the prior generations of archer-heroes, most notably Black Archer, Green Arrow, Hawkeye, and both Speedys.

Hugh is currently a Junior at Dixon City Notre Dame High School, where he works to maintain a steady "B" average. His friend, Jeff Hawkin, is the one person who knows Hugh's identity as Silver Arrow; Jeff helps out Hugh by keeping an ear out for various happenings with the local gangs.
Physical Description: Silver Arrow is a young man standing 5' 9" tall with an athletic build. He has brown eyes and hair.
Strength Level: Silver Arrow possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.
Known Superhuman Powers: Silver Arrow professes to not have any superhuman powers. However, those who are familiar with his abilities suspect that he has some form of telekinesis which he unconsciously uses to guide his more tip-heavy and certainly non-aerodynamic arrows in flight.
Other Abilities: Silver Arrow is an archer whose skill exceeds those of Olympic archers. He also has studied basic hand to hand combat, and appears to have some knowledge of chemistry and micro-mechanics. He claims to have invented many of the arrows himself; whether he was working off pre-existing plans or actually did work out the details himself is unknown.
Weapons: Silver Arrow uses a compound bow with a 150 lb pull and a number of arrows. His usual quiver contains 6 target-point arrows, 6 broadhead arrows, and a number of other "specialty" arrows.

Silver Arrow's more common arrows include: explosive-tipped arrows filled with a few ounces of commericially-available explosives; a smoke bomb arrow which releases a thick cloud of black smoke; a magnesium flare arrow which, when struck on a rough surface like that of a brick building, produces a blinding flare for three seconds; a tear gas arrow; an acid arrow filled with concentrated nitric acid; a self-designed bola arrow which he uses to entangle fleeing opponents; an electro-shocking arrow, discharging 20,000 volts upon impact; a grappling hook with a trailing cable; a putty arrow which releases a highly sticky chemical compound; a "boxing glove" arrow, which is able to knock down or knock out opponents without doing lethal damage - but is able to break bone when fired from extremely close range; a suction-tip arrow with hidden superglue reserve; and a sonic whistle arrow. More esoteric arrows he's come up with include a drill arrow; a rocket booster arrow; a set of handcuffs on an arrow shaft; and a net arrow that deploys in mid-flight using a laser distancer and minor explosives.

Silver Arrow (current GURPS 4e version)

Real Name: Huberto "Hugh" Knight
Gender: Male
From: Los Angeles, CA
Age: 20
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 150 lbs.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown
Ethnicity: Caucasian/Hispanic mix.
Known Relatives: Richard Knight (father), Maria Knight (mother), Shannon Knight Patra (aunt), Shaniqah Patra (alias Miss Cleo, Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, cousin)

Physical Description:
Hugh is a young man with an athletic build in his late teens to early 20s of mixed caucasian and hispanic ancestry, with short brown hair and brown eyes.
As Silver Arrow, he wears an advanced armored bodysuit which is resistant to conventional firearms and most common hand-held weaponry, painted silver with blue boots, gloves, belt, and cross-straps (for the quivers). While his identity has been revealed to the public, he still wears a mask over the eyes, "as that's what supers do."
Hugh tends to be cocky, both in costume and out.
Hugh Knight was born to a well-to-do family in Dixon City, California. When he was a young boy of about 6 or 7, he was caught in a building that collapsed during a fight between two supers. He was rescued by a super, but to this day he is not certain who it was. Not long afterwards, the Purge happened, eliminating Hugh's chances of discovering who it was that saved his life.
As he grew older, Hugh discovered he had a talent for handling the bow. Inspired by fictional super-archers from the comics and history - primarily Hawkeye and Green Arrow, but also Robin Hood, Golden Archer/Black Archer, Speedy/Arsenal, and Arrowette (he emphatically denies the latter, if it's brought up) - he developed the identity of Silver Arrow.
