Planar Champion

"Warrior of a hundred worlds. Mercenary captain of the Blood Wars. Sword of celestial vengeance. The planar champion moves between the planes, always driven to battle. She may be driven by a quest for justice or a thirst for blood, but she is feared throughout the known universes for her prowess."
D&D 3rd Ed. "Manual of Planes"

Imagine a Time Master but for alternate realities and multiverses. You get someone with the ultimate sense of Walking the Earth, But Now I Must Go, and even The Homeward Journey where the person's wanderlust or adventurous nature doesn't just take them across the world but beyond and between worlds. There is an increased impressiveness when a hero's traits are adapted for not just one grand frontier, but billions of them. These individuals may sometimes find themselves facing their counterpart in a Multiversal Conqueror.

  • Pretty much any PC in the Planescape campaign setting, which takes place at the nexus of different planes of reality and revolves around jumping between them.
  • Magic: The Gathering: Planeswalkers have the ability to navigate the Blind Eternities and jump between worlds. Since the planeswalker package includes incredible magical power, they usually find themselves at the center of whatever conflict is currently consuming the plane they land on - either as a champion or a Multiversal Conqueror. Special mention must go to Gideon Jura, who wears himself out on a cosmic Two-Timer Date when trying to deal with world-shattering crises on multiple planes at the same time.
