Fantastic Tales of Avalon City
A spatial distorting hero, specializing in infiltration and confusion.
A spatial distorting hero, Vector’s appearance often changes, as he wraps himself in images, sometimes from pictures, sometimes of people, sometimes a mosaic of everything around him.
Hero Corp personnel files reveal that Vector, aka [redacted name], used to be a member of the GRU, the Russian equivalent to the CIA, working industrial espionage. He was good at what he did stealing plans, programs, and other tech for his country. He was lucky beyond belief, especially at craps. And in a firefight, bullets always seemed to just miss him.
After an especially big job, with a firefight that was caught on file, he was suddenly taken away to a cell for testing. Lucky again, because his bosses had wanted him removed for asking too many sensitive questions he knew too much about what they were planning. So, they gave them to their mad doctor, who always needed candidates for the Supers program. Needless to say, Konstantin was a success. He could cause bullets to miss him, even lasers. What they hadn’t counted on was that he would be able to teleport out of his cell before he had been properly … conditioned.
He used his spycraft to flee to Avalon City and get to Hero Corp, which gladly took him in for his skills and powers, setting him up with a cover job and papers. And thus Konstantin Aleksandrovich Orlov was born.
Not much is known about the history of this hero, except that he speaks with a Russian accent and seems to know a fair amount about security and computer systems, in addition to being a decent hand-to-hand fighter. Oh, and he smoke a hell of a lot, but uses folds in space to suck the smoke away…
Hero Corp has found Vector quite useful for infiltration operations, as well as for confusing opponents with a judicious use of teleport attacks, redirection of projectiles in midflight, and other space origami tricks.
