Name

Jake "Cana" Hawkins

Concept

Serpent's Hand Point Man

Power

Mind Control: Jake was given the ability, in the course of his work with the Serpent's Hand, to subtly influence the minds of those around him to give him an edge. Each activation of the power gives Cana +3 to Persuasion.

  • For 1AP, Jake can attempt to persuade an opponent to render aid to him and his allies.
  • For 2AP, Jake can rip information from the mind of his target.
  • For 3AP, the opponent may be forced to take action directly harmful to themselves or others, including attacking.

Aspects

Looking Out For Number One: Even though Jake's loyal enough to the interests of whoever's paying him or keeping him in house and home, he's still liable to take any advantage he can get.
I Cut Gym: Jake's interests in school leaned more heavily towards the intellectual pursuits, at the expense of the physical ones. His physical endurance is often an issue, especially over protracted periods.
The Mask Behind The Man: Jake is used to putting on social disguises around other people, emulating his surroundings to engender trust in those he's around.

Personal History

Born and raised in Manhattan, Jake developed a keen sense for finance and the inner workings of business, and sought employment with a local business, securing a position as a bookkeeper. On a business trip to Chicago to meet with the corporate honchos, he accidentally pissed one of them off, leading to his termination and getting stranded in the city.

He worked a succession of odd jobs to keep a roof over his head — mostly involving translating — until he saw an ad asking for a 'business manager' for a bartender at a small hole in the wall. Turns out, it was a cover for the Serpent's Hand, a collection of paranormal guys and gals (and non-gendered) trying to get by in the world. Taking the moniker Cana, Jake became the local chapter's public face and part-time bad ass. Then the world ended.
