    Heroes 

Andromeda Hawkeye

As played by desdendelle
A descendant of both Lutecia and Tia, Andy is the owner of Luti's tea shop. She inherited her purple hair and eyes from Luti, while getting abilities as a Transform Weapon from Tia. While she's not so effective as a superhero, she simply cannot see evil done and not do something about it.

Jacob "The Cat" Henderson

As played by Musik Maestro
A car mechanic who lost both his legs and his mother to a drug running gang as a child, Jacob returned to Radio City for his adoptive parents funeral, upon which he set up both a car repair garage, and his secret identity as "The Cat", a hero who is anything far from super powered.
  • Action Hero: For the same reason that he's The Unfettered - namely, his propensity for crime fighting.
  • Animal Theme Naming: He fights crime as "The Cat"
  • Artificial Limbs: Jacob sometimes wears prosthetics in his everyday life, and the main function of the Cat Suit is its hydraulic legs.
  • Badass Transplant: His prosthetics are hydraulic, and can, among other things, kick people's heads off.
  • Handicapped Badass: He lost his legs as a child.
  • Hero Stole My Bike: More like Hero stole my car. "My" in this case meaning Mandora's which he had in his shop at the time.
  • In a Single Bound: The Cat can easily jump an entire story of a building with the power of his cat legs.
  • The Unfettered: He has no moral rules he follows, and he doesn't care if he commits a crime if he beats out the bad guy in the process.

Grog "Caveman Detective" Nugnon

As played by Nman
A Cro-Magnon superhero who was frozen for thousands of years, and then made a detective in the Radio City Police department.
  • All Cavemen Were Neanderthals: Or at least the media thinks so. For the last time, he is a CRO-MAGNON.
  • Arch-Enemy: Urglon the Eater was Grog's greatest enemy in the past, who he finally defeated just as he fell into the ice.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Grog's preferred weapon is a club he made out of a space rock in his original time, which was frozen with him.
  • Contemporary Caveman: He however does not like the word "caveman", and insists that he is a Cro-Magnon.
  • The Exotic Detective: They don't call him the Caveman Detective because he's from Burbank, after all.
  • Hulk Speak: When angry, Grog has a tendency to speak in the third person, such as "GROG SMASH!".
  • Human Popsicle: Grog was frozen in ice for over fifty thousand years before being discovered in the 22nd century.
  • In a Single Bound: He is capable of jumping up to ten meters.
  • Innate Night Vision: Grog has a primitive version of night vision. Instead of being able to see in the dark, his eyes can shoot out powerful beam of light much like a flashlight.
  • Rock Beats Laser: Grog believes in this trope, and quite literally at that - he carries a bag of rocks around despite having a service pistol, and replaced his baton with a club.
  • The Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer: After thawing out, he was able to adapt enough to become a detective.

"Upload "

As played by Plumbum
An... unknown amongst Radio City, Upload is a man who one day woke up in a back alley, ready made into a cybernetic supersoldier who can turn into data and enter computer systems at will with knowledge of how to fight and nothing else, even down to his real name. Only having the presence of mind to think he was a good guy at heart, he joined L.E.A.S.H and hopes to find about his past...

Robin "Tank" Stones

As played by Scorpio Rat
An orphaned teenager who gained super strength in the radioactive incident that killed her parents. After being ignored and treated like a danger at the Radio City orphanage, Robin decided to leave and find some place that would accept her.
  • Berserk Button: Mentioning or badmouthing her parents in front of her or making fun of her past is a very easy way to get her angry.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: This was more of a problem when she was younger, but she still occasionally forgets exactly how strong she is in comparison to others.
  • Emotional Bruiser: She's not very good at hiding or ignoring her emotions, actually breaking down in tears when her motives were questioned.
  • I Love Nuclear Power: The reason Robin has her powers.
  • In a Single Bound: Robin can leap at least ten feet high.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her vocal muscles are also affected by her super strength, allowing her to shatter windows by yelling at them.
  • Mighty Glacier: She can hit hard and take hits well, but don't expect her to move anywhere quickly by running. Being so dense makes it difficult for her to pick up speed without assistance.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her parents were killed by a stray radioactive weapon while cleaning up one of Radio City's many battle sites.
  • Power Limiter: Tank wears Limiter Gloves in order to let her control her powers, so she can turn a doorknob instead of overdoing it and completely destroying a door.
  • Shockwave Stomp: She did this in the Museum, shaking the floor a little with a Ground-Shattering Landing.
  • Super Drowning Skills: Because of her muscle density being so large, she is unable to swim.
  • Super Strength: Robin is capable of punching down walls and lifting SUV's. Her strength can potentially become even larger with training.
  • Super Toughness: Her body is very durable, making it difficult for her to bruise or break her bones. She's even picked bullets out of herself on a few occasions with minimal wounds. Getting hit still hurts though.
  • The Klutz: If she's not paying attention, she tends to accidentally break things that are weaker than her, like pencils, silverware, desks, doors, walls, and floors.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: She has no formal training in hand to hand combat, relying on mostly clumsy strikes to attack her opponent.

April "Kite" Melody

As played by Starbound2
A young woman who graduated with a Masters in Engineering from Radio City University, and went on to be a vigilante with her high-tech panels.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Though even without her helmet to control her panels, she's still a skilled engineer.
  • Red-Headed Hero: Though her helmet usually covers up her hair.
  • Science Hero: Her main power is manipulating a set of ten panels that she uses to fight crime.

Hank "Stalwart" Sanderssen

As played by Taco
A descendant of Stalwart's, Hank tried to lead a normal life, majoring in Superheroic History and working as a security guard at Grandad's museum until he put on the Armor of the Stalwart to fight off a supervillain breaking into the place. Knowing that nothing good could come of simply refusing the call, Hank immediately rushed to City Hall and declared that the Armor of The Stalwart had found a new hero, and signed up for L.E.A.S.H.
  • Blade on a Stick: As Stalwart, his Weapon of Choice is a very sharp and unbreakable pike.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: The Armor of The Stalwart gives Hank his powers, and only when the entire suit is assembled.
  • Not Quite Flight: The pike is also Stalwart's primary mode of transport, as by winding back and "throwing" it while still hanging onto it he can effectively fly. But it's not actually flying.
  • Stock Super Hero Day Jobs: Hank is not only a security guard at the Radio City Museum, he's also a student in his second year of studying Superheroic History.
    Villains 

Heather "Visionary" Laird

As played by Evi I Paladin

  • Artificial Limbs: Two enormous metal arms and four mechanical legs serve the old lady in getting around...
  • Badass Boast / Badass Creed: "I am Visionary, the second of my name. I have seen all that has been, is, and ever shall be."
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Visionary attempted to fight three heroes simultaneously in her bid to steal the Hand of Phexus. It went about as well as you would think.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Visionary is furious that people do not know who she is, despite being a newcomer to the whole supervillain thing.

Patrick "Sepirate" Higgins

As played by Nman
A pirate in the skies of Radio City whose ability to generate a dozen copies of himself has turned him into a one-man-crew.
  • Deserted Island: The place where Patrick found the magical bourbon that turned him into Sepirate.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: A man dressed up as a pirate might not be able to fight your typical super, but a dozen certainly can.
  • Nice Hat: One of those stereotypical straight-edged black hats.
  • Me's a Crowd: Manages to perform several jobs onboard the ship by splitting himself up.

  • Sky Pirate: Serves onboard The Flying Thunder, Damned Privateer of the Seven Skies.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: Uses "argh" a lot in particular.

Vinny "Mandora" Lebroski

As played by Nman
A former frat boy at Radio City University, Vinny's blood was converted into alcohol during a kegstand, and since then he's turned to crime to get his share of fun.
  • Clothing Combat: Mandora's weapon of choice is a T-Shirt cannon. Though aside from knocking out the occasional mook, it's more for show than fighting anyway.
  • Elemental Powers: Vinny's power is to telekinetically affect alcohol and alcoholic beverages, causing his power to be more like Making a Splash for liquor.
  • Immune to Drugs: As well as not getting drunk, Vinny can't get affected by drugs - this lack of typical ways to party led him to a life of crime.
  • Never Gets Drunk: Because his body has replaced all of its water with alcohol, drinking has no effect on him.
  • Wacky Fratboy Hijinx: Before gaining superpowers, Vinny was in charge of the Rho Eta Tau Fraternity at Radio City University, doing the usual stupid frat boy things.

Takehiro Shion, The Shadow Samurai

As played by Plumbum
A genuine, honest-to-god samurai from Feudal Japan, who placed his soul into his mystical seal before his death, so he could return one day and rebuild his clan of Legendary Samurai to rule over what they see fit once again.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: His sword is enchanted to be as such. It will not however cut another bladed weapon, as a part of Shion's honor.
  • Badass Normal: Does not have any powers, but has truly fearsome swordplay skills.
  • Honor Before Reason: Shion is always an honorable fighter - he will never attack with a numbers advantage and will always make his opponents aware of his intent and give them a chance to arm themselves before he attacks. Of course, with Combat Pragmatists abound in Radio City, this is likely to backfire.
  • MacGuffin: The Samurai Seals, which contain Shion's dead allies.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can / Sealed Badass in a Can: Shion placed his soul into his Samurai Seal so it would be preserved before his impending death at the hands of ninja.
  • Shout-Out: Shion is one letter away from the boss card of a particular Yu-Gi-Oh archetype... and all of the other Samurai names are taken wholesale.

Percy "Dragon Breath" Cooper

A barely legal, kinetic energy controlling super-villain who’s main hobby is burning things, particularly Radio City. He’s constantly in search of some excitement, willing to do jobs for other villains to get entertainment (and maybe some pay).

The Broker

As played by Musik Maestro

Waltazar "The Walrusmaster" Rusonam

As played by Nman
A Walrusborn from a tribe of animal trainers in the frigid northern lands, who headed to Radio City thinking that he could find treasures from the ancestors because a book told him to.
  • The Beastmaster: Though unsurprisingly, the Walrusmaster specializes in walruses.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Summoning the Walrog is one, because the beast cannot be truly controlled, and is just as likely to injure its summoner as it is to attack its enemies.
  • Homeless Hero: Walt has no place to live in Radio City, sleeping in alleys by night and if it lines up with his goals he sometimes fights crime.
  • Required Secondary Powers: All of Walt's other powers are there to allow him to bring his walruses into battle.

  • Accidental Murder: Angel discovered her powers when she was at school and threw a stone at a boy picking on her thatvshe accidentally accelerated telekinteically and therefore left the other side of said boy's head.
  • Le Parkour: Angel when she was young practised parkour. As she has found since, being a traceuse is useful as a quick response tool.
  • Mind over Matter: Angel's primary power, although she cannot affect anything that moves significantly under it's own power.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Replace 'rules' with 'any regard for collateral damages' and we begin to get the picture.
  • Sir Swearsalot: 90% of the girl's vocabulary is profane. Her very first spoken line is to refer to the heroes present as 'useless fuckwits' and no sentence she has yet spoken has not involved a curse word for example.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Angel believes herself to be doing what's right, but she often puts punishing criminals ahead of actually helping people.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: It's natural for her, but considering she was born with telekinesis, it's one of the things that was found less weird about her.

Tsuki Wakahisa

As played by Scorpio Rat
An easily excited girl from Japan that moved to Radio City five years ago after gaining the ability to turn into animals. She enjoys roaming the city at night in search of interesting people and animals.

  • The Beastmaster: She can convince animals to assist her sometimes, but it doesn’t always work.
  • Unstable Genetic Code: Her D.N.A. assimilates and stores the D.N.A. of other species that are at similar enough to humans for later use. (So no bugs or fish) It becomes even more unstable with each new genetic code gained, making it more and more difficult to stay in a single form for too long.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Animorphism to be exact. She can transform into any animal she has touched at a whim.

Julian "Lightweight" Leckie

As played by TehStanman
A white-collared civilian who has the ability to shift his own mass. Doesn't particularly enjoy having his powers around, although having them isn't necessarily a bad thing either. His neutrality comes from the fact that he tends to avoid trouble whenever he can, which would be an impressive feat in Radio City.

  • Megaton Punch: He can increase the force of his fists by changing the mass of it mid-swing.
