Ọba Löwen

Real Name: Adewale Heidenreich
Alias/Nickname: Ọba-Löwen
Hight: 6'4
Weight: 289 pound
Morality: Lawful Neutral

Personality: Boastful, constantly bringingn up things that make him look good. Though he is cool headed for the most part. Loves to talk about himself of course, bringing himself into everyones conversations or stories about how he would do so and so differently.

Bio: Child of a German father and an African mother, Adewale Heidnerich, quickly found himself destined for greatness, seeing that he was child of 2 lawyers he wanted to someday find himself in a courtroom. Even as a child he often found himself quietly judging and watching others, relishing in the fact that he didn't have so many of the faults that they did, so much so that he would often rub there misfortune in there face, in way of bragging and teasing. Growing up in Germany, spending his summers in various parts of Africa to learn of his mothers culture. He even spent a little time in the military, doing well enough to get the title of Captain.
After his honourable discharge he got older and he got smarter and went to only the best lawschools that his father and mother could afford to send him. After years of hard work his 40th birthday he got to get the grasp of a gavel. Now working as a prominent judge in one of his districts he was able to live his dream. One day after he had closed yet another case, as he was walking to his car it suddenly exploded, severely burning him and sending him almost immediately into a state of unconsciousness. As he lay there lay there an unsettling warmth started to take over his body. He was dying, worse then that, he could feel his spirit being dragged down, down, down.

"Go, and claim him." Being said was all he could remember before he felt something pulling on his very soul, golden claws tugging at his celestial being, as he struggled to get out of it's grasp, until he once again saw the inside of an ambulance. He wasn't in any pain, other than his clothes being tattered and cut off of his body, there was no more burns. More importantly he felt...Good, his body had grown and his muscles were actaully bulging, he was never this fit. Though he liked it. He didn't know it, but that thing he was fighting was the sin of Pride, who had found that body of his, and it's position of power attractive. Though he beat pride off before he could completely take his body, he was still changed by the evil entity.

Powers: Because his powers stem from being the embodiment of pride, He is head and shoulders above any human. His powers include super enhanced speed, and strength. The fastest he was clocked at running full sprint was 80 miles per hour, and he can maintain that speed for up to 5 hours before needing to stop in take a rest. He also has the strength to do remarkable feats, like ripping off car doors, and throwing them 50 yards. His most impressive feat by far was halting a charging African elephant during a safari.

He was given great abilities as well, feats that go well beyond strength and speed.

Abilities: Through years of training he as become what he considers "The Perfect Human". He has learned to train every aspect of his body to work at his peak levels, coupling that with the military training he recived he is well versed in many forms of conventional combat. He is also as flexible as the best contortionist, and much more agile than even an elite gymnast. His twitch muscle fibers were also honed and trained immensely, giving him the ability to do things such as disarm someone with a gun so quick they pull the trigger well after it's been taken from them. Leaving them to squeeze at air. He can hear, and see well enough and far enough to see the size differences in a bowl of rice, down to each individual grain, or hear the sound of a knife dragging slowly from a sheath 50 feet behind him.

His most exceptional trait has to be his ability to think when the pressure is on, using a photographic memory along with his unperalled senses he can prepair for any situation at a moments notice. His brain working overtime to play hundreds of different strategies in his head at a time on how to defeat a foe, and the most flashy intricate way to do it.

He posses a trasformation as well. He first discovered it during his earlier stints as a hero. Long before he honed his new skills to become as powerful as he could, he was stopping petty crimes. Unable to stop a jewel theif, he was feeling somthing that he never had before, failure. It shattared his ego so terribly that he remnants of the sin that was still inside of him turned his body into that of a bestial lion like man, who chased down the theif over the course of 4 days and disposed of him, so that the source of the failure could never happen again.

In time he learned to control it, and became able to use it at will, though he reserves it for when the fight truly gets tough.

Transformation: In this state all of his base stats are nearly doubled, except his speed and agility, which makes him clock in at 95 miles per hour. He gains claws as well, capable of slicing through the roof of a car with a couple of swipes to get to the passengers inside. This form is also very damage resistant, able to withstand most physical injury, any standard issue pistol rounds only piercing to the skin. Blades are good against him, though it would take plenty slashes to get to him, it is possible.

How do I best say this

How do I best say this without sounding rude... German is noticeably not your first language.
Your chosen name is Teufel Hunden all over again. ^^
Löwen is plural, the singular is Löwe. And Oba is not a word in the german language, Ober is. Although it is sometimes pronounced Oba, which probably led to your mistake.
Also we have a thing for compound words. So I'd say the name you were going for is Oberlöwe. Or Oberloewe if CoT doesn't allow Umlauts.

What else? Oh right, the german army is in fact not called army but Bundeswehr (Federal Defense), often shortened to Bund. And the equivalent of Captain would be Hauptmann.

Last but not least, one small tip: Try to not begin almost every sentence with He/His. It's repetitive and makes reading less than pleasant. You can mix it up a bit by using either his first or code name instead.
I hope that was helpful. =)

When people ask me about my religion, I tell 'em I'd worship Cthulhu.

How bad could I possibly be? Let's see...

^ Quite possible Ọba is from his mother's side?

Also, you did sound rude. Multiple times. Is English not your first language?

Possible, yet not likely. Demrius made clear that his hero's most distinct trait and source of power is Pride.
Putting Ober in front of another word indicates that whatever it describes is the best/most/highest of it's kind.

Pity, that was obviously not my intent.

Nein... as should've also been obvious from the "we" I used when talking about the german language.

The Oba is from his mothers

The Oba is from his mothers side. It is just his alias I did it that way on purpose in order to further reflect his roots. King Lion. The Leader of Lions. ie the one above the rest. He IS the King Lion. As for everything else, thanks I didn't think of it that way for the most part on terms of the German army. I will edit the start of sentences though. I was kind of trying to get all of my ideas down before they left my head and all.

OK, my bad then.
Now I'm curious however. Is Oba an actual word that means King? If so, from which language?
Google Translate's autodetect shows it as Czech, meaning 'both'.

Nevermind, it's Yoruba. The second last language, urgh. =P

I didn’t have a problem with him really, not until after being told to consider the possibility that my character’s first name was African, and he said it wasn’t likely. Then again in tongue in cheek fashion questioned if Oba truly was an African word. Other than that though, he was actually helpful and kind in terms of giving me the needed background info from the lacking information I had on the German Military.
