BRAEK - Boo Man of Velocity


"Tell ya a secret: GREEN goes faster."

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 unruly speed demon Braek is the least elegant of the Boo Men, a crass and brutal creature who lives more than anything else to enjoy herself.


Braek is known best for the blinding speeds and impressive acrobatic feats she can achieve while riding her removable wheel, leaping across vast gaps and even tearing her way up nearly vertical surfaces. Despite her small stature and wiry appearance, Braek is also physically stronger than any other Boo Man, capable of tearing many adversaries apart with her bare hands. Her favorite maneuver is to simply ram an opponent with her virtually unbreakable cranial horn, though she may employ the sheer grinding power of her wheel against especially tenacious targets, or drag them behind her at extreme velocities until she's left holding little more than a bloodied stump.

Braek can consume almost any material, but ingests oil, asphalt, plastic, rubber, gravel and bits of metal with particular relish. It is her own waste products which comprise her wheel, formed under high pressure in her unusual bowels whenever a replacement is necessary.


Craving constant excitement, Braek has difficulty sitting still for more than a few seconds and can seldom last more than a day without smashing something or at least starting a small fire. She has been known to completely disregard important orders for an opportunity to pull off some radical new stunt, eagerly putting herself and others at incredible risk so long as it will look "wicked" enough. Braek may leave an enemy outpost exploding in flames, only to circle back and try to prove she can "totally jump it."

Braek is considered somewhat tiresome to most of the other Boo Men, with the notable exception of Stinng. Wherever an incarnation of Braek meets one of Stinng, the two are highly likely to abandon their respective duties and "catch up like old times," engaging in an extended rampage of senseless destruction, vandalism and the ruthless bullying of anyone they agree is "uncool," sometimes even a protesting commander. Braek particularly enjoys playing pranks on her fellow Boo Man, Drane, and humiliating her in front of her peers. Regardless of Drane's protestations, Braek remains convinced that these actions constitute good natured, even affectionate ribbing.


STRENGTH: Braek is much stronger than her size and proportions would normally entail. She can bend steel, smash rock and carry several times her own weight.

ACCELERATION: Braek can ride her wheel at incredible velocity, which she can wield to both offensive and defensive effect.
