BANG - Boo Man of Bullets


"The best bang since the big one!"

Offering their services as assassins, bounty hunters, security guards and even personal battle-monsters, the Boo Men are elite mercenary bioconstructs of uncertain origins, each sharing a single core mind and personality across its many replicants or "incarnations."

The acrobatic sharpshooter Bang has long been the most famous of the Boo Men, idolized as much as he is feared and even pursued romantically by millions of entities across the planet - and far beyond, if some of his outrageous exploits are anything more than his own tall tales.


Bang's primary weapons are his pistol-like hands, continuously supplied with bullets manufactured by his own digestive system from a diet rich in raw metals. These projectiles would not be so lethal, however, were it not for Bang's incredible visual system. Rumors abound that the monster's single eye can actually gaze into the future, but in truth, the organ simply analyzes such a high volume of information at such speed that the rest of the world, from Bang's perspective, seems to move along at a snail's pace. Coupled with these heightened senses and unsurpassed reflexes, bang's analytical and calculatory skills are such that few of his opponents are even brought down by a direct hit, but by the elaborate chain reactions he can trigger with a single shot.


Bang is a boisterous, narcissistic monster, relishing attention and never missing a good opportunity to show off his latest moves, sign an autograph or regale an audience with dramatized accounts of his adventures. His indiscriminate romantic tastes are particularly notorious, extending to biotypes, mechanoids and parasentiences of every variety with no regard for social standing or personal safety. He is famously respectful on such excursions, and regardless of assignments, he will never directly harm a former lover.

It is often said that Bang keeps six out of ten of his incarnations intoxicated at any given time, but evidence suggests this is a grossly conservative estimate. Once freed from all obligations to a given employer, an incarnation of Bang has been known to terminate itself through a single night of intensive drinking, thrill-seeking and debauchery. Whether this self-destruction is intentional or Bang simply has nothing better to do with an unemployed body is uncertain, as his only memories of these rampages are the subsequent hangover effects rippling through his collective consciousness.

Bang is on good terms with almost all of his fellow Boo Men - some to more personal degrees than others - with the sole exception of Whail, who regards him as an uncultured, insufferable ruffian. This does not discourage Bang from regarding the two as particularly close friends, finding only amusement in Whail's hostility and evasiveness.


GUNSHOT: Bang's body engineers its own metal-coated, explosive bullets, which can be fired with deadly force and precision from his index digits.

OCULAR TARGETING: Bang's eye can "lock on" to targets, scan for weak points and zero in on objects up to a mile away.
