    I agree.....I think we need to get moving at some point or we're just going to stagnate forever, and I want to fight Hailing sometime this year. if Hawkflight wants to play out the Masala Vs. Tigra, we can do it the sidequest thread or do it in flashback, whatever, its not really important, the outcome won't affect much, lets just timeskip ok? we got threads for playing out the the past stuff, that were supposed to make this go faster, we should use them and just timeskip.

    very well then, we'll time skip and Hawkflight can do her things whenever she has the time to actually get them done, we can't wait for her forever.

    I will at the very least, start that Hailing artifact hunt sidequest in the sidequest thread, just so that something is happening. and it has started.

    oh, right, before I go posting what Max is up to during the time skip, is there something established for Namek? Is it currently undergoing that climactic shift thing? I mean, Max happened to like the Namekians he met back in his own timeline, so...not-helping them if there are any still on that planet dying in an ice age would be rather out of character for him.

    I figured I would check and see if there are any Hailing Imperial ships in the area or any other compelling reasons to leave the planet alone (like, if all the Namekians are already dead, then there's not much point in trying to save them).

    We don't actually know, I just left the status of that to Frozen, and figured that 23 thinks the whole Namek under cataclysm thing is beyond her reach to fix since she doesn't actually know where it is, the future records of course only show New Namek but even then, in the age 1000, it was also destroyed, and since the Dragon Balls can only revive things on a one year time limit or so, if the Namekians are nearly extinct, then the time to fix that would've been one in-game year ago back when the Dragon Balls were something made by Callins or Oxyribo.

    guess what happened there? first Callins used it to get Android 22 back to the past, using up all three wishes. then Callins died, Oxyribo recharged them and......used them to fix and resurrect Oxy City and revive Callins. it was only after that did Yama inform Oxyribo that Namekians were apparently extinct aside from Trombone Jr. Yama did not elaborate on HOW he knew this, given that he is a magical guardian and not a technologically advanced being.

    combine that with the timeline being different, its very possible that the only Namekian still alive in this timeline is Trombone Jr. and his personality like Yama before him, is nothing to write home about. so good luck with that. you'll have to ask Frozen about it, because I don't know.

    Well, Max has a rather different data set to work with. He'd have to actually take his capsule corp ship out of capsule form and check it's data banks, but given who he got it from and why (to make peaceful contact with other civilizations), having the location of Old Namek in it's databanks wouldn't be out of the question. Of course, that would require some backtracking to get a current location, but it would be a starting point. And then his capsule ship would go right back into it's capsule, because it's FTL is based on saiyan drop pod FTL, so it's comings and goings would be rather notable and possibly draw unwanted attention.

    That said, Yama wasn't exactly known for being a particularly Truthy individual, was he? I figure that Frozen Feet* would have the final say on if there are actually any Namekians left (like Guru, and possibly some others) or if time/space differences have tipped things enough out of the favor of the Namekians to kill the ones still on planet.

    If nothing else, Ing, where do you think Namek would fall with regards to Hailing's Empire? Unexplored space, rumors, known but not cared about, mlidly policed, pointed and laughed at, etc?

    *After all, King Yemma would know. It's kind of his job. That and appreciating Mahogany.

    It's pretty simple: when timetravellers & Callins started waxing poetic about Namek, Yama went and asked King Kai about if there was such a planet. King Kai told him it had underwent a cataclysm, killing off nearly all of the population.

    Yama knew there was possibility of a survivor from Namek (Son of Kataz) landing on Earth, because of all the things he learned from time travellers, and he knew there was possibility of another survivor on Namek (Guru) for the same reason. He never personally went to confirm the latter, he was just fairly sure that Guru would not have ready-made dragonballs for the Rebel Alliance to (ab)use back then. (This was over a year ago, in game.)

    EDIT: my opinion is that Namek was probably fairly prominent military entity, a small sovereign stretch of space within the Imperial territory. But then everyone there died (as far as everyone at the time knew), and Namek was reduced to a side-note in Galactic history untill Frieza's time.

    Anyways, character sheet update for the timeskip! just updating the main three for now, I'll get to the other ones when I figure out what their PL's are, and remember all of Shanakan's moves. suggestions are appreciated.

    Age: 20 years old

    Height: 5'8

    She looks like a normal human: She has red spiky tomboyish hair, slitted calm green eyes, thin teenager build, wearing a black jacket-white shirt-blue pants combo with boots. Her jacket has a small "Red Ribbon Army" logo on it.


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show

    She is kind of bitter that she was kidnapped to become a weapon for a mad scientist. She also feels melancholy that Android 22 died for her and that Android 21 became evil. However she also feels happy that she can help and protect others. Android 23 tries to keep a cool head about her situation. She knows that she can't let her past haunt her if she wants to move forward. However the more weirdness she starts to encounter the more sarcastic she will probably become.


    History:
    Spoiler
    Show

    In an alternate Timeline, Dr. Gero made three more Androids after himself: 21, 22 and 23. For in this timeline, he failed to make Cell at all. The Z-Fighters defeated all the other Androids as a result, while 21, 22 and 23 were set to activate a few years after the rest as a back up plan. However because there was no Cell, the Z-Fighters were not strong enough to face Majin Buu because they didn't train enough, and so quickly died. However soon at the same time the three Androids were activated, investigated...and found that their mission had already been fulfilled by Buu. Their secondary objective, conquer the Earth so that Dr. Gero could rule was also impossible since Dr. Gero was already dead and Buu was carving his own path of destruction.

    So the Androids decided that they were free, but that they couldn't be free with a big pink jelly-monster destroying everything, so they decided to fight against Buu. They weren't doing well, so Android 21 decided to do something risky: He grabbed Majin Buu and drained all the energy he could from Buu until he was dead. As a result Android 21 gained great power from Buu. However then his eyes suddenly flashed red- this was a timeline manipulated Tow and Mira into existence. Android 21 suddenly turned on Android 23, sucking away all her energy, Android 22 attacked Android 21 to save 23's life just in time, but as a result her power levels had fallen to about a mere 200. Android 22 shouted for 23 to run as she held Android 21 off.

    Android 23, seeing no other option flew away as fast as she could while Android 22 fought to hold 21 in vain. However it wasn't long before Android 21 drained all of 22's energy and came after 23 for her last bits of energy. However Mira shows up to collect energy from Android 21 and they begin to fight. The resulting battle causes a rift in time that Android 23 falls through and wakes up on a planet that looks like Earth but not any Earth she recognizes. She has no idea what became of 21 or Mira, but to this day she misses Android 22. 22 was her friend, who sacrificed herself so that 23 may live, even if it was just for a few more minutes by the expectations they had at the time. She will not let Android 22's sacrifice go in vain however, and will fight to protect others in this new world she has found.

    Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Original Power Level: 200
    Current Power Level: 3 million
    Six Heart Flowey Form: 60 million

    Built In Scouter:
    She automatically sees the power level of anyone she looks at as a number. She can't even turn it off and thus its kind of annoying. She also has ki-sensing

    Drainer:
    (Ok, this ability can get overpowered if not designed correctly, so this might be a little complicated)
    Android 23's design makes it so that she is unable to gain power the ordinary way of training, as her muscles are all mechanical. Therefore she needs to drain power from her opponents to strengthen herself.
    This draining ability has a few degrees of effect: The default degree is that every time she punches, kicks or touches somebody she drains a slight bit of their power, not enough to be noticeable but accumulated over time it equals the rate at which other people gain power.

    However, it has other uses: draining some one directly as an attack and absorbing ki blast attacks

    Direct Drain requires grabbing the opponent and having a good firm grip for it to work right. She is essentially increasing her drain degree for a short time to suck in as much energy as possible. Even at its fastest however its not an instant kill, but the foe has to break free from her grip somehow if they want keep living longer than a few turns. However due to her built in Scouter she knows exactly when to break contact and thus keep them alive.

    Ki Blast Drain, cannot absorb all ki attacks effortlessly. There is a certain speed at which she drains it even at its fastest, and while that can be increased by getting more powerful, if the foe's ki attack is too powerful she won't be able to absorb all of it to be completely free of damage- consider Ki Blast Draining to be just another block effect, but with the added benefit of giving the user more energy to fight. If the attack is too power to block, or block entirely, Android 23 still gets hurt. For example, a Raditz-level Android couldn't absorb a Freeza-level attack entirely because something like the Death Ball is simply too powerful to absorb fast enough for them. Normal ki blasts however are easily absorbed.

    Trace Laser:
    A thin green beam that she fires from her hand. The laser goes in a straight line until the foe dodges and then changes direction. How many times it does so, depends on her power level. Thus you need to dodge the attack multiple times, but if your good at blocking, you can shrug it off easy.
    Variants:
    Army Trace Laser:
    Used against multiple opponents the Trace Laser goes though them and then locks on to the next target instantly repeatedly until they are all dead.
    Trace Sniper:
    A particularly long range version of the Trace Laser, can hit targets with accuracy without even being in visible eyesight.

    Street Brawler Style:
    Knows various brutal melee moves from her time as an orphan brawling others with just her fists.

    Super-Strength and Speed:
    Her mechanical muscles give her both of these relative to her current power level. They cannot be build themselves up, but the energy she is absorbed is converted to make her stronger. However Dr. Gero designed her specifically to be the light, accurate and fast one of her Android group, so she is notably faster than someone of power level normally is.

    Flight:
    She of course has flight, through a ki-to-anti gravity converter engine.

    Organic Components:
    She still has some organic capabilities, namely she can eat and drink and taste but her stomach has been altered to convert it all into ki to power her, some of which is used to stop her from aging or at least slow it down. She doesn't need to breathe though, or eat or drink, its all energy to her but food still tastes good. Dr. Gero didn't want his Androids dying from silly things like starvation and wanted them to last long.

    Downloaded Martial Arts:
    Dr. Gero of course downloaded into her knowledge of a practical no-nonsense fighting style for maximum effectiveness in combat.

    Destructo-Disc:
    just like Krillinís except green. Its practically a secondary signature attack for her now, as befitting one of earth's strongest champions

    Super Destructo-Disc:
    can create an even greater version if she uses one turn to charge it up, incredibly large disc and can cut through mountains.

    Stun Blasting:
    can fire normal stun blasts to try and stun for a few minutes, or power stun attacks for a few hours.

    Mechano-Sorcery:
    The Androids magic takes on mechanical or digital aesthetics for some reason
    Spells Known:
    Matter Materialization
    Scrying

    Mafuba:
    Can seal evil people in jars. takes concentration.

    Instant Transmission:
    Knows it, but it will still be years before she masters it, and thus can't use it often.

    Referential Cosplay Style:
    Has focused on her Flowey Cosplay and its Six Heart form, and is thus gaining much more power in this one while neglecting the others, and many flower and thorn themed attacks are now natural to her, but to access the Six Heart attacks she needs to put on the cosplay.
    Flowey Attacks:
    -Flowey Ring Attack
    -Thorn Blades
    -Petal Storm
    -Thorn Beams

    Six Heart Flowey:
    -Justice Pistols
    -Patience Daggers
    -Perseverance Armor
    -Kindness Healing
    -Bravery Empowerment
    -Integrity Empowerment

    History:

    Show

    In this timeline, Majin Buu lives in peace with humanity thanks to Android 22. She and 23 are given Masala by Buu as a child to raise in thanks. So for thirteen years, the two Androids learn to be a family, taking care of and raising a Majin- an incredibly silly and wild child being a challenge even for them. She would constantly adventure outwards and be attacked, if not powerful wild animals, then by humans who still hated Buu for what he did to them. Of course 23 constantly protected her from danger until others learned to keep away, and thus kept Masala innocent and un-traumatized, but developing a heroic view of her mothers as a result.

    23 of course, became annoyed with this and eventually began teaching Masala how to survive by herself in this world, teaching her the basics of flight, ki-blasting, fighting-especially the DODGE! part- but of course, Masala never learned ki-sensing or ki-suppression as her Android mothers have no idea how to do those ki techniques. She however got by just fine in the rebuilding ruins of Earth.

    However one day, The Time Breakers came through the rift, their forces intent on conquering the Earth in this timeline. Android 22 and 23 had to spring to the defense, but couldnít leave Masala unattended, but humans still had a lot of hate and distrust of Majins, while many of the Majins were already joining the defense, leaving it hard to know what to do with her. So 23 decided to knock Masala out then leave her far away from civilization where this new threat was unlikely to reach her. When Masala woke up, she was confused as to where her mothers gone and flew around searching for them.

    Little did she know that 22 and 23 of this timeline had perished fighting the Time Breakers.

    So Masalaís searches- and finds 23ís carved statue with her message to 22 carved into the base. She recognizes it as a message of her mother and figured: if the enemies they were fighting were called Time-Breakers, and 23 was stuck in the past, then obviously the Time Breakers must have sent them both into the past! Problem, how to get to the past? Oddly enough, she finds a time machine nearby, unbeknownst to her left by a Time Patroller sent to fight the Time Breakers invading Earth. So she hops into the time machine in curiosity and uses it to scan the message left by 23 then take her to that time, or at least as near as it can get, and thus the Time Machine fades away to soon arrives in this timeline, Masala unaware of her parents true fate and thinking that 23 and 22 she finds here are hers.



    Story So Far:
    Spoiler
    Show
    She destroyed a time machine upon landing.

    Fought various villains, redeemed Fenrir, and help found the Budokai


    Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Original PL: 9000
    Base Power Level: 1 million

    Flight:
    She can fly well.

    Ki Control:
    Can sense ki and hide her own ki

    Majin Body:
    Capable of stretching her body in all the ways Majins are known to do, as well as their incredible ability to either not get hurt or reconstitute themselves. She is talented at reshaping herself to add to her fighting style.
    -Extending Limbs
    -can split into many selves at the cost of PL
    -Can slip through any cracks
    -Use pig tails as weapons
    -channel electricity through her limbs
    -Absorbed Rabbit: has rabbit hearing and can run fast and kick harder as a result.

    General Fighting Capability:
    She knows Cartoon Physics Style, and thus fights in a very silly, strange manner. Mostly because she has watched and been inspired by too many old-fashioned looney tunes style cartoons:
    -Dual-Wielding Scissors
    -Natural Referential Cosplayer, she now focuses on Jester Cosplay and thus influences her style to be a mad dance and to be constantly acrobatic.

    Majin Wild Magic:
    can conjure things much like any majin. Anything else is probably a one time feat until she trains years to do it consistently.

    Ki Blasts:
    -Kamehameha
    -Bang Bang!: basically a ki blast finger gun, much more rapid fire.
    -Ghost Kamikaze Attack
    -Juggler Barrage: launcher ki ball attacks like a juggler
    -Exploding Pie Attack: fire ki blasts in shape of pies
    -Parody Mimic: can parody someone elses attack once per battle, its just as effective but sillier.

    Yama knew there was possibility of a survivor from Namek (Son of Kataz) landing on Earth, because of all the things he learned from time travellers, and he knew there was possibility of another survivor on Namek (Guru) for the same reason. He never personally went to confirm the latter, he was just fairly sure that Guru would not have ready-made dragonballs for the Rebel Alliance to (ab)use back then. (This was over a year ago, in game.)

    EDIT: my opinion is that Namek was probably fairly prominent military entity, a small sovereign stretch of space within the Imperial territory. But then everyone there died (as far as everyone at the time knew), and Namek was reduced to a side-note in Galactic history untill Frieza's time.
    Oh, well, that would work fine. Max is definitely the kind of meddler that would use computing power and modeling to lay out a plan for shifting the climate with precise injections of thermal energy into the atmosphere (from ki blasts) to alter the climate of Namek and bust up whatever clouds are busy keeping it overly cooled. And if Guru and some other unnamed Namekians are lampshaded as surviving on Namek, with Max giving them shelter on his ship for a bit, it gives anyone who wants to run a Namekian an inroad to introducing that character later.

    So, if we're going with that, I'd still want Ing's opinion* on if/how Hailing's Empire would react, or if it would even notice a climate change to Namek (since they might not even be bothering to look).

    I also don't imagine that Guru would be trying to form dragonballs any time soon. If he could, it would be reasonable to assume that he would have tried to gather them and use a wish to solve the climate issue (or preserve namekians until the end of the problem).

    *Ing is more or less in charge of Hailing's Empire, right?

    I am in charge of the Empire, yes.

    I would imagine Namek, due to its lack of natural resources and population of strong native ki-users, conquering it is just more trouble than its worth, and has been left to its own devices and only became relevant when the Planet Trade Organization, what Frieza reformed the Arcosian Empire into, learned of the existence and nature of the dragonballs and their presence on Namek.

    It's highly unlikely such an anomaly would move up the chain of command to the point where Hailing would notice. The Empire is vast. I repeat myself a lot about this point but it can't be emphasized enough: The Empire is hugely, massively, mind-bogglingly vast, with direct control of trillions of star-systems. If it's something that Hailing has taken a personal interest in, then he would probably notice, but unless it's a disaster affecting multiple sectors of space (one sector comprising hundreds of star-systems) then he wouldn't care.

    Who would be noticing would probably be a team of xenobiologists and xenothropologists, who watch Namek for peaceful, scientific purposes on behalf of the Empire. The information might make it into a local publication, but nobody higher than a Subsector Lord would see it (Subsectors comprising a dozen star-systems)

    Yeah, based on you noting the size of the empire (repeatedly) before I assumed it was something like that, but didn't want to step on your toes in case you had anything in mind. If the only people watching are scientists, then Max would be relatively brazen in his terraforming action, possibly utilizing a namekian looking ship to get into orbit, then a mixture of IT shenanigans and ki blasts to get Namekians off surface while the weather propagates changes. Then, at least, if any of the scientists get in contact he can speak Namekian at them and keep his space suit on to try and feign being a wayward native that felt his home planet was in trouble or something.

    If anyone wants to do any parts of that in more detail in the sidequests thread, I think we can handle that while the main thread keeps rolling forward on the choochoo-punch-hailings-face-in-express. If not, I'll just summarize some things and maybe leave some parts in a spoiler on my update post to keep it from a wall of text.

    Also, would Yankar have been up for training consistently with Max during the lead up to fighting against Hailing? I had figured that Max would keep visiting him over the course of the year to spar, if only to give a better showing than his blunderous mistakes in that first match. Probably pushing Yankar a bit by keeping up with him, and exceeding a little in power level from time to time by getting better with the Kaioken coupled with a baseline power increase from the sparring.

    Its no problem Hawkflight, you have more important things to do, we understand. I won't hold it against you for it, cause if its something you need to do, its worth missing out on the game if you get that done. and being sick always sucks.

    It's good to see that you've been able to post again, and if your time is getting eaten up by real life that's more than understandable. As far as society at large is concerned, it's supposed to be dominated by work anyway, and to be seen as a sign of adulthood and maturity. Good luck on the job search.

    I'll start writing up a timeskip post, but before I post it, I was figuring that Max would have coordinated with the others ahead of time to some extent, and be crashing the Vodkana party with a protest of his homeworld's annexation. Possibly with Yankar in tow. And being in proximity when Apfel delivers the arrest warrant, he could get himself and Yankar into the ensuing fight by proclaiming it the Neighborly thing to do. If nothing else, it would provide an alternate faction assumption than 'oh, that's the rebel alliance backing up apfel, this undermines his authority'.

    Oh, right, Yankar is Yankar. Yeah, huh...maybe just Android 22 an 23 then, seeing as they're still human as far as anyone could tell at first glance. That said, if they time things right, Max and Yankar will show up after the warrant is issued and Hailing is throwing the first blow.

    Oh, would Apfel have been up for taking mental partitioning lessons with Max during the time skip? It's something he already does as part of Split Form, and would probably be rather handy for Apfel with his whole 'ICANSEETHEFUTURE' thing.

    Yeah, that would probably work out better. And it would be easier to trick out the fighting location to play what Max considers to be Traditional Earth Music. That, and since it would be seen as a seperate event, we wouldn't have to worry about waiting until Hailing makes the first strike after Apfel delivers the warrant. Which would probably suit Yankar just fine. He likes punching things, I imagine.

    Depending on how things work out, Max can then potentially give the fighters on Earth a lift over to the wayward fight across the galaxy to help against Hailing.

    Oh, and I forgot that I didn't hit post on this when I thought I did, with Fenrir, Puffy, Fuzzy, Max, Yankar, Luxana, and Tigra on the Earth Liberation Front, who are they showing down against from the Arcosian Empire?

    edit: Oh, right, could Max have 'kidnapped' Fenrir for a few training sessions on King Kai's planet? After all, the guy is supposed to unite the disparate Earth factions, getting some heavenly training under the effects of 10x gravity with someone nearby to make sure it doesn't kill him would probably help with that. Pending approval from King Kai, of course.

    BTW Hawkflight:
    what about that High School dream sidequest thing you were talking about? I still remember and am up for it.

    as for Yankar, he can be at the Earth fight instead, I'm up for him doing whatever, him being at the Hailing fight is just particularly amusing because he'll either try to fight Hailing one on one and fail or protest everyone butting in and trying to fight the most challenging person he can. things like that.

    I do still want to do it, but considering the fight against Hailing has already started, this may not be the best time. It's something that's meant to happen right before a major battle, one with world-ending consequences. Hence, "Can't you see the world is ending?"

    I don't see how that doesn't work: just set it one day before the timeskip ends.

    Time to update the character sheet, so rather than editing the one that is linked to, I figured I would post the updated one here, where it's easier to see.


    Updated Max Banders
    Max Banders

    Spoiler: Character Sheet for Max Banders
    Show
    Age: About 21 subjectively. Objectively he was born in Age 870, so...-400something?
    Gender: Male
    Height: 6'4
    Weight: 200lb (that being mostly muscle and bone)
    Species: Human
    Station: Formerly Graduate Student of West City's Prestigious West City Tech, Now wayward time displaced youth. Now: Groundbreaking Scientist (at least as far as he's concerned).

    Description:
    Spoiler: Description
    Show

    Max is rather tall for a human, at 6'4. He has only a small amount of body fat, strong shoulders, and a solid body build. If he bulked up, he might be able to make a good showing at a Mr. Universe competition, but, alas, his muscles are not oversized. He has a fair amount of lean body mass, muscles built up from endurance training, like yoga, running, and practicing kata, rather than large muscle mass like one might get from a lot of weight training for burst power. Even so, his body type can provide a very imposing view for the average person, what with being taller and bigger than them. Of course he wears clothes, generally loose fitting pants secured with a belt, comfortable sneakers or boots, a simple t shirt of a single color, and when the weather calls for it, a trench coat. Knit gloves and hat optional. As he's gone through high school he's been growing his black hair out, and found that it has a natural wave in it, resulting in hair that ends in curls if he doesn't do anything with it. And, not wanting to be confused for a woman with his beautiful hair, he tends to use a little product to keep it spiked out, or ties it back into a poofy pontail. His eyes are a warm, inviting blue.



    Personality:
    Spoiler: Personality
    Show
    Max is driven by empathy, and tries to seek balance in his thinking process. If logic or reasoning doesn't seem to be cutting the mustard for understanding a problem, he'll try thinking with emotions. But he tends to default back to logic and reasoning more often than not.



    History:

    Spoiler: History, Wall of Text Warning
    Show
    A lot. But to be less evasive without dropping pages of detail the highlights include:
    Max is a reincarnated soul. In his most recent previous life, he had managed to make some headway on the path of enlightenment and cultivated just a little bit of light that stuck around in his soul after death. When his soul got in line for the next reincarnation cycle, this bit of light got noticed and the Celestial Bureaucracy decided to jar his soul until they finished debating what to do with it. After all, a soul with too much enlightenment in the mortal realm could cause a lot of chaos or be dangerous or something. This is where Universe 13's copy of Max's soul is, actually. For Max, however, the jar wound up broken when a young ogre on cleaning duty was busy rocking out to some sweet tunes on his walkman while he mopped. One thing lead to another, and a few air guitar power chords later and Max's soul slipped free from the broken jar and snuck it's way into line to get reincarnated before anyone noticed. And since the young ogre swept the mess up and didn't report anything so he wouldn't get in trouble...well, so far it's worked for Max.

    He was born in an unhealthy branch off of Universe 7's timeline, with temporal conflict in it's future having already propagated subtle shockwaves into it's past. For his Age 870, Max was born into a world where Gohan had published a book on ki control and approaching it as a science instead of an art. The Pan Fighting Network had existed for years, and encouraged young people to learn how to fight and control their ki as a matter of course. Earth had been in public contact with New Namek for years, and Majins were a small but steadily growing part of the population. The New Crane school was still being taught by an aged Tien, and Krillen had taken to teaching the New Turtle School after retiring from the police force. All was not perfect, but at least there wasn't any Red Pants Army or any such shenanigans. At least not when Max was born.

    While Max was growing up he was taught how to control his ki by his mother, a member of Earth's Space Defense Force, and had his scientific curiosity sparked and nurture by his father, a medical scientist working with Namekians to try and improve Earth's medical technologies. By the time he was 15 he was already taking some of his classes at West City's Technical University (West City Tech for short), while in other classes he was at the associated high school to help keep his social development more normal and less 'how do I talk to teenagers and children?'. It was also around this time that Max's association with the Namekians that his father was collaborating with bore fruit, as Max managed to figure out how to heal people with his ki. Which he immediately hid because he didn't want the kind of public attention that might garner. But when the team members of his high school sports teams started getting seriously injured during games and outside of them, rather more often than they should have been, Max started taking aside his classmates and healing their wounds so that they could compete fairly with the other high school teams. And that just didn't work for the guys running the numbers on those games that had gone to the trouble of breaking teenage knee caps to adjust the odds. It was around this time that some of those same mafioso noticed Max. They didn't know how he was doing it, but they noticed that he seemed to be the focal point for his classmates having miraculous recoveries. Max, however, hadn't noticed the Mafioso. He had been working on making a hand held device that would accept ki input and then adjust it so that what came out the other side would mimic the wave form and function of his healing waves. That Was going to be his science fair project for the year. That got shelved when the Mafioso gave him cement galoshes and tried to leave him sleeping with the fishes shortly before his summer break. While he survived the attempt on his life, he conspired with his father to use it to fake his death and proceeded to get in contact with Krillin, who had trained his mother in the New Turtle Style. Krillin, having a rather public school that made it a poor place for the kind of covert 'train you so you can defend yourself by the start of the new school year' plan relayed Max to his own instructor, the still living Turtle Hermit Roshi. With the requisite amount of raunchy romance novels, victoria's secret catologues, and actual 'adult magazines' in tow, Max appropriately bribed Roshi into teaching him for the summer. In the course of a few months Max worked himself into a lean, pleasant, fighting machine.

    This is where his plan kind of fell apart though. Max was quite over confident in his skills when he finished Roshi's training, and on his way back home he came across some people terrorizing building with some hostages in tow. Suffice to say, while they wound up arrested by the police, no one was able to disarm the bomb in time and Max tanked it like a pro by hugging the damn thing. This was not something he survived, and without enough remains to identify his body, he wound up being an unknown hero for the town. When it came time for his judgement in otherworld, King Yemma had been so over worked with recent events going on elsewhere (some strange planet called Colors was attacking other planets and trying to establish itself as a space empire at the time) that instead of looking too closely at Max's soul, they just looked his his tally of good and evil actions and passed him on to heaven. However, while he was in line for the Heaven Plane, Max noticed SNAAAAKE WAAAAY. And after getting a basic description from one of the ogres he wandered out of line and started running it. It seemed more fun than heaven and he still hadn't quite given up on living. When Max got to the end of it, having flown most of the way to speed things up, He met King Kai. And also the ground. It sure seemed to like him, what with the gravity wanting to plant his face in it constantly. To keep this story simple, Max was the only smart person who wasn't an ass that had actually gotten to the end of snake way in...who knows how long? So when it came up that Max had died young, and still thought he could do more to help out in the living world, King Kai did him a favor. Well, other than teaching him martial arts. He did him the favor of fudging some paperwork back at the Celestial Bureaucracy. So Max was shuffled back to the mortal coil with a new life span and his death was written off as a corrected accounting error with appropriate action supposedly already taken.

    After rising up out of the ground at the site where his remains had been buried...then patting the grass back into place so people could have their unknown hero grave site undisturbed, Max booked it back home. He had missed the first half of his next school year, and his parents had been worried when he had supposedly left Master Roshi's place months previously, but discretion being the better part of valor, Max went with not telling them he had actually been dead. However, his return to school did instigate a series of more serious attacks by the 'Crane Mafia', a group that had once been a regular flavor mafia until students of the crane school who had failed on a moral level and been expelled kept swelling the mafia's ranks. It was at this time that Max started wearing a mask while he fought, and proceeded to fight the Crane Mafia in a number of very public battles that gradually resulted in the deaths of the Crane Mafia's strongest fighters. Not the least of which was a cyborged up assassin that had been enhanced with black market Red Ribbon tech that Max had to tear the power core out of to get him to stop.

    It was after these very public battles, and helping to clean up after them, that Max got into a partnership with Capsule Corp. He would be their front man, defender of West City, and they would help him navigate the realm of not getting sued for killing a crap load of mafioso. His life settled down for a bit after that. He was called in by King Kai to participate in an Otherworld Rookie Tournament, which he managed to win by the skin of his teeth. After that tournament he was summoned to train for a bit with the Old Kai, but that training was more an excuse for the Old Kai to weasel some of the same kinds of gifts that Max had given to Roshi out of him. It was less 'intense training' and more 'old kai screwing around with a mortal to get some kicks'. Max wound up with some fancy Otherworld duds out of it, and supposedly the old man had unlocked his ki to it's maximum potential. What he had actually done was force Max to put up with a series of inane tasks to put the young man through an emotional crucible to help him grow his patience and compassion. But of course he didn't tell Max that. Where's the fun in that?

    The Colors War that had been raging in space and generally outside of Earth's media presence, apparently came to an end. Resolved by other people. With things apparently safe, Capsule Corp arranged for Max to go on a tour of some known planets that hadn't had official first contact envoys sent. He had built up a reputation for being a swell guy and for his part he got to count the trip for college credit. On that Capsule Corp ship Max swung by Namek first to deliver a collection of capsules to help with moderating New Namek's climate. While there, he played a small part in helping the Namekians resolve an attempted coup against the elder. To which he recieved a head pat. I mean, there was a little potential unlocking there, but it was mostly a head pat. The next stop was Yardat, a place that Capsule Corp hadn't sent a probe to yet, but had some vague idea of where it was from files that had recently declassified themselves on the CC mainframe. While there, the Yardats were friendly and taught Max the Instant Transmission in exchange for sharing some of his Earth foodstuffs with them and giving them a copy of an earth music database. There was much rejoicing as the rock flowed. The last trip on his list was easily the most dangerous. New Vegeta, estalished by a partially wished back saiyan race, had become some kind of ridiculous world of neverending coups. Saiyans would wander around in packs, victimizing eachother and engaging in combat over the littlest of things. Some would even hit super saiyan and do great combat for who would be king. You know, at least for a week or something. While there, Max helped get some of the overtaxed rejuvenator's back online, had a brief romance with a saiyan woman around his own age, and helped to set her up as king before he left. One of the oddities in his particular branch of the universe 7 timeline being that super saiyan was only about a x2 boost...and saiyans seemed to have a lot easier time accessing it. That would be the reason that kaioken kept Max pretty on par with the threats he was facing. In the end, the new saiyan King decided that if she couldn't keep Max, she could at least give him a boon and move on. Which is how he wound up with the ship he tried to fly home.

    Max took a few days to modify his ship and get it in working order. And given how much of a junker it was, that was more of a 'in working order long enough to get home so I can really fix it' than a 'in proper working order'. With a wild hair of an urge, Max decided to make a practical test of his doctoral theory and modified the aging hyperlight engine of his newly acquired Arcosian Cruiser. He was going to call it a 'Max Drive', but felt that might be giving people a false impression if his theory didn't pan out. On the bright side, his theory did pan out, and Max's ship successfully exited the universal space of his branch off universe 7's timeline. Unfortunately, the Colors War kicked up into full swing while he had been on New Vegeta, and General White's powers did not interact well with CC brand teleporters that were being used to reinforce a first strike initiative against the planet Colors. By which I mean time basically exploded and his entire branch off universe 7 shriveled up and ceased to be. His ship, still aiming to land at 'Earth' wound up expending it's fuel to get him to An Earth...in Universe 13.

    He's going to be landing at Earth.



    Abilities:

    Spoiler: Abilities
    Show

    Power level: 80k 2 Million
    Power Level on Scouters: usually registers as 5. Obviously if he's in combat this varies.

    Due to misadventures in his originating timeline, Max learned or developed a number of techniques:
    Ki Control: adjusting his power level and manipulating his energy on a microscopic scale. Learned from a lifetime of private study and experimentation. This is why his power level reading regularly registers as 5.

    Healing Waves: Based on studied namekian techniques for healing, Max worked out his own technique based on ki to heal injuries and supply the target body with the necessary energy and materiel to rebuild itself rapidly. Also works against most diseases, though it tends to only put cancers into remission.

    Ki Sensing/ 'Scrying': Coming along with Ki Control of that level, Max is particularly adept at sensing ki. To the point that if he sits down and concentrates, he can use his imagination to rebuild the ki's he's sensing into bodily shapes and get a pretty good idea of what's going on. Doesn't do sound though, and the color is meh, so it's not as good as TV. It also just doesn't work on things he can't sense...like androids.

    Kamehameha: the old reliable, learned at the New Turtle School

    Dodon Ray (Dodompa): a two finger beam with heat properties, learned from being attacked with it repeatedly.

    Ki Shield: You'd come up with a way to block ki attacks if you got shot with this many Dodon Rays too. Max can extend his Ki Shield to cover other people and objects as well, but if he makes it much bigger than a small house, it weakens the shield.

    Multi-Form: Learned from a scroll obtained by saving a rich person from yet more Crane Mafia. Splits your power level between you and your energy copies. Normally splits your power level evenly between copies, Max has worked with the technique enough to be able to adjust how much power breaks off into each split. Max's maximum is 5 splits (that is, himself and 4 energy copies).

    Empowerement : Developed from the split form (multiform, whatever) technique, Max creates a split, but instead of it forming into an energy body, he tags an ally to place the energy into them. Unlike a normal infusion of ki into someone else, this infusion has enough internal structure and complexity to stick around, like a native addition to the target's ki (so it can recover, it doesn't bleed off immediately, etc).

    Inner Light: Max has been working on walking the path of enlightenment since before he was born...this time. He has had at least one previous life, and while he doesn't consciously remember any of the details of his past life(ves) he was one of those kids that adults woul look at and say 'oh, he has an old soul'. Because he does. In point of fact, his soul in the year that universe 13 is in is currently on a shelf in otherworld pending paperwork on whether it will be allowed to reincarnate another time or not. The end result is that Max can develop techniques with a holy bent to them that is normally reserved strictly for gods. So far, he only has the one technique that this applies to.

    Sacred Beam: a Max Banders original, though from a distance it is visually similar to a Gallic Gun. Max emanates a sphere of hostile white ki around his body before releasing it as a beam in any given direction. It can be fired from a bear hugging position, and since the ki involved is holy flavored, it tends to wreck demons and those with polluted ki. However, it Is a compelling reason for Max to not go evil. Because if he did, then used the technique, he would knock himself out of the technique by setting himself on fire. It also has a tendency to leave places with a sacred cleanliness and a light minty smell that lingers for a little while. It is also ill suited to damaging anything that isn't evil...like rocks, clothing, and innocents. By which I mean it passes by them, maybe cleans them up and leaves them with some cleanliness sparkles for a little bit.

    Instant Transmission- Obtained by training on Yardat while in space to get in contact with other planets and spread good will.

    Kaioken- obtained by training with king kai while he was dead. Tends to stick to x2 because he's mostly used to it, though he could probably handle x10 for a bit he wouldn't be happy. He has trained up his proficiency with the Kaioken to the point of maintaining the x10 with quick bursts. If he just left it on, he could handle keeping it at x5. He's not sure what his limit might be at this time, but doesn't want to risk exploding (usually).

    Genki Dama- also obtained by training with king kai while he was dead.

    Genki Dama- Healing Edition - Developed from the Genki Dama, instead of taking the gathered energy and forming it into a (possibly massive) bomb of ki, Max uses the Healing Waves technique to change the nature of the bomb from offensive, to recouperative. It tends to have a much larger spread when it explodes, but rather than doing damage or throwing anything around, it provides healing and succor to anything caught within the 'blast'.

    Creation- I guess it's called Magic Materialization around here. Same general concept, forging matter from ki. He's still not very good at food yet, but he's usually using it to make clothing, simple tools, or electronic parts to be assembled into larger things or replace broken bits. His focus is more small scale precision than large scale mass production. So, create some power ranger outfits for his split forms? sure. Create a mountain? not so much, definately not all at once. Maybe if you gave him a while. Obtained by winning the rookie otherworld tournament while representing North Galaxy.

    Flight- Something that like, 90% of humans knew how to do by the time Max was born. Practically a rite of passage in the same way that learning to drive a car used to be.

    Genius level intelligence and a Doctorate to boot- Max was born smart, a child to a medical scientist and a member of earth's space defense forces, and he not only had a full public education, but devoured his way through a college education. He was just about done with his doctoral thesis and ready for submission when he got back to earth when his branch off universe 7 decided to give up. If someone uses a technique against him often enough (like, really obnoxiously often enough) he can eventually figure it out.

    Earth Martial Arts: While he isn't a perfect practitioner of any one style, Max memorized the movements associated with every martial arts style he could be exposed to as a child. This isn't so much a power as a statement that he knows kung fu...and tai chi...and karate, and so on. If it's from space/not earth it's probably new to him.

    Touch Telekinesis- Like regular telekinesis, but he has to touch things to use it. This is generally how Max achieves superhuman levels of strength, instead of directly empowering his muscles with ki. Same basic end result, but sometimes it makes physics behave different. This is something he does on a subconscious level, rather than something that he could teach or learned.

    Telepathy- Part of the whole 'ask the universe for energy' thing. If Max can sense the target's ki, he can use that to open up a bridge for telepathic contact between them. More like a chat or voice chat than a direct link of thoughts, there isn't any involuntary mind reading involved.


    Other information:

    Spoiler: Stuff

    Max owns a cruiser sized space ship that was junk when the saiyans he obtained it from got it, and was slightly worse junk when they gave it to him. Built in Age 700, it was at one time an Arcosian Cruiser, built to ferry moderate amounts of personnel and equipment around without having a huge crew requirement. With 190 years of existing under its belt, its seen better days. Even with the maintenance Max did before trying to fly it home, it still needs more maintenance. Technically speaking, it's still a ship from the future with future technology on it. But it's in really rough shape. The cruiser also has 6 'old' scouters, battle suits, and arm blasters on it.
    He has had time to give the ship proper maintenance, in addition to properly integrating the modifications he had made to it. With time to tinker on the scouters, Max has updated them to his own standards of operation for scouters...which means they're rather more advanced than normal.
    For the fight on Arcos, Max has whipped up a pair of combat space suits. They aren't perfect, but they are made of advanced saiyan battle armor material. With some wireless microphones, speakers, camera's and projectors attached to the suit as concessions to being able to see, hear and talk. The helmets are otherwise solid and atmospherically sealed, with a supply built into the suit.
    Max owns a box of capsules that he keeps a portable house, some storage container capsules, and the ship he was assigned by Capsule Corp to explore the galaxy with and use to make contact with some of the more wayward (by earth standards) species with. The capsule corp ship is much like the ones Goku and Vegeta utilized in their own space shenanigans, with a gravity chamber, living space, and muffin button. Max's has a neglected cappacino machine and a fridge full of beer he's never going to drink. It's also where he keeps outfits from everyone he has trained under. This is also where he keeps his Earth Diplomacy And Welcome packages. He probably won't be handing most of those out anymore.

    Max has a red ribbon cyborg power core that he ripped out of an assassin that was trying to kill him. If installed properly, it could enhance someone up to about 10,000 bp equivalent.

    Hailing's Royal Guard, including Captain Asalute, and what ever reinforcements come in through the teleporter. Though in the interest of making it not just a big curb-stomp battle as large numbers of the ELF are past 1 mil in PL, i'm gonna give a power boost to Captain Asalute, who was previously stated at 350k. Needless to say, he found a use for the Hyperbolic Time Chamber beyond just aging liquor.
