Crimson Hood, little red

https://black-falcon01.deviantart.com/art/Red-Hood-713174300

This is an original character write up I made for the My Hero Academia site. I cannot make this character in COT unless they introduce quadrupeds as Controller minions...I don't see it happening. anyways, I really liked how this little gal turned out.
My Hero Academia is an anime set in Japan. Its a super hero high school, but the powers are called quirks and the power level is considerably weaker than standard comics.

Red Hood
Name: Circe’ MacGregor
Gender: Female
Age: 16
Sexual Orientation: Hetero
Occupation: Student
Height: 5’2”
Weight: 110
Hair Color: Flaming Red
Hair Type: shoulder length
Eye Color: A deep hypnotic green
Skin Color: pale with some freckles
Nationality: Irish
School: UA
Year: 2nd year
Distinguishing Features: Circe’ is a lovely red head with green eyes. She also has red wolf ears and a red wolf tail…but do not call her Fox Girl. She hates that!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Skills of Note: Circe’ has benefited from intensive training from her pro hero parents. As a result her quirk is more advanced than her age would normally show.
Staff fighting. Her parents brought in experts and trained her from an early age, she is now proficient with the staff at a martial arts level.
Other skills of note: Circe’ is fluent in Gaelic, English and Japanese. She has traveled extensively and is an expert hunter, able to track, gut and clean a kill. She can cook the meat and cure the skin. She is an expert outdoorsman and can start a fire with a pair of sticks. She prefers to hunt with a spear.
Circe’ knows some boxing, but she prefers her staff. She is a virtuoso with the harp, and can sing like an angel. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hero Profile
Hero Name: Red Hood
Costume: An armored version of the Little Red Riding Hood outfit
Quirk: Dire Wolves
Weapons: Sheppard’s staff (like Little Bo Peep would have) one end with a blunt hook. The other with a stun gun
Gadgets/Tech: Armored outfit
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Extra
Likes: Castles, Celtic Myth, playing the harp, animie, Japanese language and culture, hunting with her wolves and a spear, songs sung in Gaelic, quiet places in the wild, dancing.
But her heart will always remain in the green isle.

Dislikes: ginormous bugs! Pretentious people. Drunks, fools, people who just can’t shut up, Loud music, smoking, recreational drug use.

Habits: Circe has a bad habit of biting her opponents in a fight. She is a believer in the “little people.” She never saw one but has seen too many weird things not to believe.
Fears: Uber powerful Quirks. She knows she is not one of the elite fighters, and dreads having to fight one of them. She considers her quirk in the weak to medium range.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Family: Pro Heroes
Father: the Huntsman, he could summon a pack of wolves and run with them
Mother: Iron Serpent. She transformed into a steel naga,
Romantic Interests: None. But whoever it is will have to like dogs, really big dogs.
Allies:
Rivals:
Enemies
Physical Weaknesses: since the age of 4, she has been a carnivore, unable to digest plant food.
Mental/Emotional Weaknesses: mild claustrophobia but not debilitating. Circe’ prefers open air, warm sun and the wind in her hair.

History; Her parents are both pro heroes, and once recognizing their daughters Quirk, they gave her intense training. As a result, her skills are more advanced than other heroes of her age. Her parents were very proud when she was accepted as an exchange student at UA. She entered at the 2nd year.
Personality: She is a little wild. But she is also disciplined. She believes in getting the job done first and playing later. She will always seek the quiet places where she can hear the wind in the trees. Circe’ tends to be silent, listening before she speaks. She is 16 and has never really been on a date. Here in Japan, she is on her own for the first time. Circe’ is a little intimidated, yet exhilarated with her new freedom.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quirk
Name of your quirk: Dire Wolves
Type of Quirk: MUTANT.
Description:
Strengths:
1) Circe’ can howl and growls just like a wolf. It doesn’t do anything, it’s just cool.
2) She can run and jump just as fast and as high her wolves. Very good for parkour.
3) Circe’ can summon two “dire wolves.” These wolves are huge, standing 5 feet at the shoulder. Further, they have steel teeth and bones (in other words that can take a hit and keep going). They love Circe’ and will track, fight and even die for her. Unlike other wolves their fur is reddish with a black stripe like a mane running down their back. Circe’ will eventually be able to summon 6 of these beasts.
4) Circe’ can telepathically communicate with her wolves. She can see through their eyes and sense everything they can. Through her wolves, she can even recognize individuals by their scent.

Weaknesses:
1) She is a carnivore. She cannot digest plant food.
2) If she is knocked unconscious, the wolves disappear.
3) If both wolves die, the psychic feedback knocks her unconscious
4) Wolfsbane (a European plant) repels both the wolves and Circe’.
5) The wolves can only be summoned for 1 hour, two hours if she summons only one. They can however, sleep all night with her.
6) If the wolves are destroyed, Circe’ is knocked unconscious, and upon awakening, she cannot summon any more wolves for another two hours.

What age did you obtain it: at the age of 4 she could summon a wolf cub, she called it, “Woofy.”
How did you obtain it (what was happening at the time): she really wanted a pet but her parents said she was too young. So she pouted. A day later, she surprised her parents with a “puppy.” It was a dire wolf cub. It was at this time she also got her ears and tail.

Addendum: About the wolves.

Circe’s summoning never brings the same two wolves at a time. They are always different wolves of the same species.

The wolves are not true dire wolves at all, they come from a different dimension. In this dimension, they live on a continent that humans have not yet colonized. Magic works in this dimension and while the wolves cast no magic themselves, they are magically adaptable. And they have dramatically adapted to Circe’s summoning.

Circe’s Quirk is a combination of her father’s and mothers quirks. Her father could summon up to 6 of these wolves, while her mother became a steel serpent. The telepathic link with her wolves goes both ways, and they have adapted to the vast intelligence of both her father and her. Many packs have begun to speak English, and they have actually formed tribes. Further, Circe’ had her mother’s quirk, and many wolves now have steel teeth and bones, a definite survival trait. Upon returning home, the wolves that speak are telling stories of mythical lands, strange combat, and wonderful human man and his daughter who loves them, and fights/hunts alongside with them.

The humans of this other world are in for a big surprise when they land on this continent.

If commander minions can be werewolves, you might be able to start with them until other animals are introduced in an update, as they inevitably will.

I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

You also wouldn't be able to use the name Red Hood. Jason Todd took on that identity after coming back from the dead.

There was a prominent (if terrible) new 52 comic which was Red Hood and the Outlaws.

So DC has their hands all over that name.

while names already in use by

while names already in use by commercial enterprises like Marvel or DC are probably not a good idea because of the "somebody already used it, so you're not as original as you thought" idea, nothing is actually legally preventing you from using them. As far as I know, copyright and trademark law only prevents you from making money off their idea. I think that law also extends to uses that actually impact the revenue of the copyright or trademark holder regardless of whether you make money from them. So as long as you just use the names to play an MMO, you should be free to use whatever names you want.

As long as your costume wasn't in any way close to theirs. I think they mostly hold the copyright on the look more than the name unless it's a made up word or a compound word.

Like how Transformers couldn't copyright the name Soundwave because it's an actual thing. They did use Soundblast for a time which isn't a real thing. But now I think all the toys are Cybertronian Soundwave, or Decepticon Soundwave, or such.

It's probably safest to just not use the name in a Superhero setting. But I am unsure of the legal jargon that such things use.

The player would still not be legally in violation. But if there were costume items that were enough of a match to the original that one could claim that MWM was making money off of the ideas, that is another story entirely. MWM would get in legal trouble if they made replicas or likenesses of existing costumes that belonged to someone else's protected Intellectual Property (IP).

I don't envy MWM artist's because spandex designs of every comic book ever drawn and every superhero game ever made would have to be taken into account! It's almost like a songwriter's minefield if there was a song written by someone else that they may never have even heard before... I guess the best we can hope for would be the original IP holder to just ask for a cease and desist and then MWM can pull the design.

Hmmm. OK I'm not tied to the name....I just liked the play on Little Red Riding Hood.
I know COH had a no copyright name policy and I'll bet COT will too...just to stay away from litigation.

Now for a name. I just need art to go with this and the character creator is not up yet. Curses!

Oh, the player no. Originally I was saying that they wouldn't be able to use the name because it's likely CoT would have a naming filter much like CoH and Champions Online does and that name would almost certainly be filtered out as to, hopefully, avoid any legal troubles on MWM's part.

Or at least that was my intention. In hindsight I could have been clearer on that. What's obvious to me isn't so to others after all.

Actually, the name should be

Actually, the name should be of fair use, considering that DC can use the name Captain Marvel for one of their heroes, no matter what Marvel may want. What DC can't do, is call the comic Captain Marvel.

As for CoT, that depends on them. Going to court, I'd have no doubt they could win on the naming issues, as long as the character doesn't look like an already established character. However, what Marvel and DC have is what CoT wishes it had, and that's lots of money. Money wins almost everything. :p

DC has to use Shazam now that Marvel won the lawsuit unless that's changed super recently.

I liked that one too. Though I may have to snag Little Rogue Riding Hood for myself.

Thinking Street level hero who wears a red cloak.

Last I knew, it wasn't a matter of winning a lawsuit, but rather making the character's name match the comic book title.

I thought it was a lawsuit, but the Wikipedia page says they decided to rename the character.
After some digging after DC got the rights to the big red cheese they didn't do anything with him for some time, and during that time Marvel published and trademarked the name Captain Marvel, so DC had to publish Billy Batson under the Shazam! name and in the fullness of time changed the character to being Shazam to match the cover.

I have no idea how Shazam introduces himself as that word changes him back and forth. "Hi! I'm Shazam! *Lightning* Aww, dang."

All this talk about wolf

All this talk about wolf-girls makes me think of a character I'll end up making named Feral Girl. Who would be physically modelled after Misao Kusakabe from the anime Lucky Star. I'd put a picture in my post if only I knew how.

Thanks for breaking the news to me! Wow! I guess it *is* true -- *no one* actually stays dead in comic books! Not even Bucky!

As for the whole "Captain Marvel" thing: only Billy Batson's alter ego is Captain Marvel! The Marvel Comics characters have been a series of wannabes. The *only* one of them who could come close to bearing that title was Mar-Vell (*rolls eyes*), a captain in the Kree Empire navy! Even *he* died (of cancer), but I guess he got "better"!

Uncle Ben stayed dead. Gwen Stacy did for a long time too. Ted Kord too I think. And whoever was the Blue Beetle before him...

And I like Carol Danvers. I'm glad she's Captain Marvel now.
