[[Abram Jenkins]] :: [[Jenkins]] :: [[Tank]] :: [[AJ]] :: [[Alan]] :: [[Alan Joeseph Tankhouse]] :: [[Jenny]]

High Concept: Old Soldier In Civillian Life
Trouble: No Time For Your Bullshit
  • Battle Brother: Sutton is my brother and I will always have his back.
  • Conscientious CEO: If I'm gonna lead this company I'm going to do it right.
  • Intimate with the dark side: I am deeply suspicious of everyone's motives - even my own.
  • Speedster: I can alter the rate I move through time to greatly increase my apparent speed.

Careful Clever Flashy Forceful Quick Sneaky
0 +3 +3 +6 +4 +1
Sophant Characteristics
  • Oohrah!: My military experience and training gives me +2 when I forcefully create an advantage in a combat situation.
  • Trust Issues: Once per session my security experience and training lets me ferret out a secret threat and the dark motive that drives it.
  • Radar: I am always alert to potential threats so I anticipate attacks - especially sneak attacks. (+2 to Quickly defend against sneak attacks, +1 to Quickly defend against normal attacks)
  • Blunt Honesty: Once per session I can cut through the bullshit, make a point, and have that point be heard and respected - even though it might hurt my reputation or relationships.
  • SecureAI: +2 to Sneakily uncover suspicious behaviours through monitoring of a large area, using my custom SecureAI machine intelligence.
  • Speedster (28/7/6 to 18): +2 to Forcefully warp spacetime to move absurdly fast, but with shear forces that can cause terrible physical stress and radiation pulses. Casting Time: 8s to find my flow state (0). Component - Flow State: I have to slip into a state of pure focus to activate my power. I can do this 4 times before needing to sleep. At any time this can be compelled away due to stressful circumstances. (8-4=4). Damage: 1 to 4 dodge bonus (linked to ½ speed multiplier). Duration: 1min experienced time (4). Energy Pool: Yes. Flexible: Speed Multiplier 2-11 (2+9=11), Dodge Bonus 1-4 (2+4=5), Shear Damage 1-3 (2+2=4). Source: Adept (x¼). Volume: Field extends 1m from skin (1). Speed Multiplier: I can move through time 2 to 10 times faster than the people around me. My size increases by compounded 10% for each speed increase (x2=203cm, x10=435cm). My colour shifts by one frequency band (red to orange to yellow, etc.) for each speed shift. Shear Forces: She spacetime distortion around the speedster causes physical stress to anything within the field (min DC1, max DC3).
Magic: Spells and Powers
Augmentation: Genetic and Cybernetic
Damage Resistance and Healing
  • +2 vs most physical assault (not crushing)
  • +1 vs laser damage
  • +2 vs radiation damage
  • +2 Healing Factor
  • MITO Strong: I can lift 2000 to 5000 Kg, jump 5m straight up, and walk through normal barriers like they're not even there.
  • MITO Tough: It takes armour piercing rounds to get through my skin and even then they don't go far. I can use my strength without hurting myself. Radiation, vacuum, huge accelerations - I'm fine with them all.
  • MITO Fast: My reaction times are significantly faster than normal humans, meaning I can run 70Km/h, dodge almost anything a normie throws at me, and think faster than you expect.
Stress: Mental Max 2 Stress: Physical Max 5

38 Years old, salt-and-pepper hair and a military-standard trimmed mustache and hair too short to grab. Sturdily built, uniform fits well, and when on duty he carries a sidearm on a vest with handcuffs, but noticeably no less-lethal weapons.


Born Abram Jenkins, Tank was the temporary alias he chose after faking his death and fleeing from Boeing with a lot of stolen money and equipment. He settled on Alan Joseph Tanknouse - or AJ - on 2034-03-07 while becoming CEO of CAF, and on the way to meeting with John Lawrence.

He was a shift commander in Boeing internal security, formerly worked in a PSD in Kharagpur, Paschim Medinipur, India. 6 years USMC, 4 years Aegis private security, 7 years Boeing private security, no bullshit, no alcohol, no tobacco, no kids. At this point, he's mostly in it because he gets plenty of money and plenty of time to read. Sometimes talks about retiring to Dakota to see if he can kill a moose before it kills him. Camps the police blotter the way a teenager follows a band.

In Afghanistan it was Deke and me against the world. I was getting in a year before he got out, but we saved each others lives more times than I can count. He had an uncanny ability to read the situation and the motivations behind the enemy actions and figuring out how to solve the problem that they represented. That's why I called him last week. I knew his daughter it disappeared years ago, and the kid had a rough patch when his wife died. So imagine my surprise when someone looking a lot like his daughter showed up in police surveillance footage at a seedy horse stable and a gun range a little ways out of Sudbury where I was stationed.

...Much has happened in the first days of March.

2034-03-15 1805EDT Mountain Assault The HC² and 288 HC assault on the mountain was costly, even for super-soldiers with a slowest running speed of 40km/h. 13 died on the way up, caught by heavy machine gun fire, mortar shells, and various robotic attackers. This left 275 to assault the base. The four HC2 showed their extraordinary ca
