Ben Trayson

Basic Info:

Player: DarnellJermaine

Demeanor: Ben is a bit of an enigma. He doesn't speak much unless spoken to, and he seems very quiet and stolid.

Nature: Although typically more inclined to solitude, Ben cares deeply for others at heart, though you'd hardly glean that from the way he speaks and his mannerisms. Nevertheless, he's all ears and open arms to those who need him.

Description: He's large and wide, especially for a 15 year old boy. Standing at 6'2 and weighing in at 400 lbs, he is a pure block of meat. Neither fat nor muscular, just built like a truck. Of course, he is made entirely of nickel. His entire body is the same color as the metal, and reacts just the same. (Image gives a fairly good idea- just imagine a T-shirt and sweatpants instead of the superhero outfit)


HP: 10/10

Psyche: 6/6

Brawn: 4

Agility: 1

Brains: 4


  • Built to last - (4) Brawn Being built like a wall and made of nickel, Ben has incredible endurance. He can run or do heavy labor for hours on end without feeling too tired, and this translates well into anything athletic, including punching the shit out of people. (Brawling)
  • A bit of a strategist - (4) Brains Ben may be quiet, but his mind goes at a hundred miles an hour, moving from thought to thought. He's incredibly perceptive, as well as great at figuring out the best way to tackle a situation. (Perception/Analysis)
  • Don't leave a dent - (4) Agility Ben doesn't like getting hit if he can avoid it, considering it often leaves dents in his body that aren't easy to fix. Therefore, he figures it's best to just try and dodge out of the way of attacks or run when necessary. (Reflexes)
  • First Aid - (2) Brains Ben wants to help people the best he can, so he's finally buckled down and learned how to take care of people when they're injured.

Supernatural Abilities:

Magnetic Manipulation - (4 +1) - Ben can touch something and choose to give it magnetic properties (either North or South). He, being made of Nickel of course, is magnetic himself and often reacts to the things he ends up magnetizing. He can make any surface, object, or even person magnetic simply by touching them and willing it. The amount of targets he can keep magnetized at any given time is equal to the level of this skill.

Metal Man - (4 + 1) - Ben is made of pure Nickel, and as such doesn't really feel pain or take damage the same way others do. Kinetic (blunt, slashing, or piercing types) damage done to him is reduced by (power level/2 rounded down. Final product can't be less than 1) although any damage done to him is left in the form of a dent, which can't be healed by traditional medical practices or healing magic. Rather, it has to be welded to be fixed or repaired by someone who is practiced in working with metal. (Healing powers or the Infirmary don't work for him)

Metal Detector - (3 + 1) - If Ben concentrates and pays close attention, he can detect different metals, minerals, and ores in the ground and around him in a 5 miles radius sphere. The higher level this skill is, the more detailed descriptions of the minerals and their formations in the ground and around him are.


Ben conducts electricity rather well, and it wreaks havoc on his brain. His body takes no damage, but all electrical attacks become Psych damage and deal double the damage they normally would. (Severe)

Automatically fails any Stealth attempts (Flavor/Severe)


List everything your character carries on their person here. Be reasonable.

  • Cell phone
  • Everyday school supplies
  • A couple extra Nickel nuggets, in case he gets hurt so he can find someone to patch him back up
  • $130

And everything that they keep in their dorm at SunnyBrook. Anything that's not listed here or in the section above will be difficult for the character to retrieve.

  • A laptop
  • Stationery to write letters and such
  • A deck of tarot cards

Personal History:

Ben was born of the Earth and the Stone, awakening one day as a young child of metal in a cavern. There he spent the first 10 years of his life, slowly growing in the rich mineral area he'd awoken in, until he'd accidentally wound up on the surface somewhere in Wyoming. Thankfully, a kind elderly couple took him in rather than reporting his existence and raised him for the next 5 years, until sending him to Fifth Sanctum.
