Powers/Abilities:
Geokinesis:
Due to the origins of his species being crafted out of a rare mineral called Wurtzite Boron Nitride he’s got a natural affinity to earth-elemental control called Geokinesis. He’s able of physically generating such gravitation pulses that he can stir up avalanches, earthquakes, mudslides and quicksand. This allows him to disintegrate solid rock with a single blow, turning stone to sand and conjuring vicious shocks through the earth. There’s one downside though as he lacks the precise control over his Geokinesis;  this results in causing more damage than often intended such as accidental building collapses, unforeseen incidents like falling support columns, concrete panels and even the creation of massive fissures in the ground…

Myokinesis:
Andres can manipulate muscular structure in his body, using it to alter muscle development, enhance muscles to proportions that induce temporary Superhuman Strength. It could even be used to strengthen his own body hence increasing his stamina and endurance for a limited amount of time, though there are limitations. If used too many times it can cause a cut in the muscle, known as Heller Myotomy. When this occurs a drastic injury similar to a torn muscle will incapacitate him for a reasonable amount of time.

Bio-Manipulation:
Like most Golems, Andres has a double sided skin and the ability to flip over each molecule individually, which is better known by some as Diamond Skin. Truth of the matter is that Andres was carved out of a rare mineral product called Wurtzite Boron Nitride, a natural product twice as strong as diamond and later summoned to life. This is the origin of every Golem; to be created one day and only awoken another day when their maker requires their services. Once conjured to life, the stone he was carved from turned to skin, though the molecular structure remained unaltered. Now he can flip-flop the molecular structure at will, turning his skin into an impenetrable armor; this allows him to deflect bullets and weapons that simply ricochet off his body. It is however a last resort tool as Bio-Manipulation will sacrifice his speed and mobility for durability, leaving him near-petrified. Bio-manipulation may make Andres invulnerable to physical damage; a powerful focused magical attack might be able to breech this solid exterior…

Delayed Capitulation:
Andres’ physical durability, the ability to endure/resist damage is considerably higher than an "average" member of their particular species. Therefore he can take a vicious physical attack without the perception of pain, while feeling the effects of the blow later in a more suited environment. He’s able of sustaining numerous blows of internal or external assaults before succumbing to the effects as he’s nearly able to delay the effects with 24 hours after the initial exposure. This however doesn’t mean he’s invulnerable as he can take so much damage without being aware of it, that when the injuries do develop the sudden exposure to the accumulated pain will drastically increase the needed recovery time. In the worst circumstances he’d be able to walk away from a fight, dying one day later when the effects of cette fight kick in…

Birth Marks:
None, since he was created and never truly born!

Scars/Marks:
Behind his right ear there’s a peculiar triangle-shaped mark with three dots in the corners, three along each side and one ring shaped dot in the center. This mark was his Maker’s signature and the place where the activation key was inserted that awoke this mighty golem from his slumber. Here behind his ear the skin is ruptured, exposing the dark grey material from which he was carved upon his day of creation. As legend goes, those who’d find the activation key to a golem will immediately become their undisputed master, able of giving him commands and orders; Andres’ key however was destroyed by none other than the giant himself to ensure his liberty…

Tattoo's/Piercings:
Due to the molecular structure of his body, no needle is able of breeching his skin, leaving him absent of tattoos and piercings. The same goes for scars or other related markings as nothing but the imperfections during his creation are able of leaving a permanent stain on his appearance. His age however has been defined beforehand by the application of the deep wrinkles in his face and the powerful bone definitions underneath.

Scent:
Natural Scent:
Musky cave-like scent, similar to the dense ambiance found within underground halls where no light has shine for years. It’s a cold, mossy fragrance that hints of an aged existence that reeks of a dull forgotten place lost in time…

Cologne of his Choice :
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver: Derived from the perennial cuscus grass, it is one of the most intriguing colognes, now Andres’ scent of choice. Blended with grapefruit citrus, pimento, moss, nutmeg and vetiver, it is the perfect office wear cologne. The moment he spray the perfume across his broad chest and nech, it starts as a citrus scent and then as the day progresses, it will start emanating the smell of nutmeg and moss. The subtle smell enhances his eminence and personality, giving character to his presence…

Voice:
Andres’ voice is best described as a rusty, worn-out bass tone similar to those of an old jazz musician. Most remarkable is the strength that falls in his words as even regularly speaking will sound like angry shouting coming from him. He’s loud, usually blunt, uncensored and particularly fond of foul profanities and obscenities. In many cases it’s described by others as an aggressive angry voice worthy of a professional boxing coach yelling and screaming towards people, though never even bothering to actually raise his voice to such levels. He’s got an odd way of pronouncing certain syllables, often slurring two words into each other,  especially when the first ended in a vowel and the other starts with one. Most significant to his voice is his ability to express himself in a single deep throated grunt where others would require entire sentences to deliver the same message…

Alternate Forms:
None

Other Distinguishing Features:
None

Fashion & Makeup:
Andres has a very distinct appearance that entirely depends upon the circumstances he finds himself in. Here the separation between his professional and personal life become most apparent, each has their preferred selection of clothing and style, truly defining his character. Andres makes an obvious separation between his identity as Bane for the clients and Smokey for the friends and ladies…

Smokey-Persona :
When off-duty Andres’ Bane persona is hung in the closet along with the black suits, replaced with a simple casual outfit of loose mono-chrome T-shirts , plain dark stonewashed jeans and humble accessories like dog tags, watches and his wedding ring. He’s usually seen running and working out in his spare time, hitting the gym in grey track suits, hooded sweaters and comfortable sneakers. He is no fan of bright bold colors, feeling more in tune with dark, or modest colors like dark blue, grey, black, white and the occasional green tint found in his closet. Part however of the Smokey chapter of his life are the Cuban cigars; Andres always carries a silver casing holding four hand-rolled illegally imported cigars that keep him entertained in his scarce leisure time…

Bane-Persona :
Whenever Andres is hired for work, he’s a focused, strictly business-kind of man who goes dressed in custom tailored Italian suits with fine leather loafers, designer watches though never sighted with a tie. His bodybuilder body is neatly accentuated by the crisp cut suits, accenting the wideness of his shoulders, the dominating V-shaped of his torso tightly embraced by delicately selected fabrics. It’s a rather impressive sight to see Andres walking down the street in his professional attire, adding a certain eminence and flair to his persona though most know the severity of the person behind the suit.

Sociability & Emotionality:
Sociability :
In general Andres’ appearance is rather inappropriate to the person hiding behind those daunting muscles and soaring size of arms and legs; he’s in fact a rather fatherly character with a predefined set of morals and values he lives by. He’s a stubborn, proud man with an outspoken opinion regarding various subjects, though none are as controversial as his view on War & Peace, Vengeance & Forgiveness. He’s a jovial, optimistic goon who’s rather fond of a drunken night on the town or the classy occasions accompanied by a delicate Cuban cigar, being a person who lives life one day at a time and makes the best of given circumstances.

He however isn’t the talkative type of person, often using deep throated grunts and coughs to express his thoughts rather than breaking into speech. He’s an overly protective individual, standing guard over the few still dear to him; others unfortunate enough to get on his bad side should avoid him entirely for an explosive temper turns this homely giant into a hazardous beast. In business he’s a calm composed character, though in personal matters this patience is often replaced with an agitated nervous appeal, fending especially for his three children who’re still living with his ex-wife. She is amongst the scarce few that can throw the red cape before his eyes, turning him blinded by rage where common sense eludes him…

Emotionality :
Andres is a confident, though never arrogant individual who takes life one day at a time, making the best with the cards like dealt him; he’s a optimist within realistic boundaries, understanding where his limits and possibilities lie. He’s outgoing, always relaxed and composed no matter what the circumstances may be until it regards his three kids back home. Currently he’s a hint distant, managing the hard times he’s going through being separated from his children; he’s recently divorces and due to the fact his alpha-male ego has returned, looking towards women as an entertaining diversion from life  rather than potential spouses. It may be perceived as a womanizing pig though often without his own awareness…

Most remarkable about his personality is his protective nature that dominates his daily routine; he’s hyper-vigilant about things, rather overpowered guarding over the scarce loved ones in his life, most of all his two sons and his precious daughter who mean the world to him. In his worst days he’s a homesick person wanting nothing more than playing ball with his boys or taking his little girl to the park; on his best day he’s focused upon the future, working every day towards rejoining with his kids. The few people who’ve earned his trust will find themselves being placed under his protective wing, keeping them out of harm’s way from any hazard life could throw in their way. Friends and family simply mean the world to him…

Professionally speaking Andres is a savage animal that stops for nothing to complete his job to his clients’ demands; he’s utterly focused and determined, keeping himself to a fixed set of rules that ensure his client and his own safety. He always keeps things professional, rejecting any attempt for a more personal relationship with his clients undoubted. Work and Life are two separate concepts to him, making no exception on that rule as he is devoted to his given assignment taking great pride and care in what he does on daily basis. He’s a perfectionist and often rather compulsive regarding the development of his labor, planning and plotting out every job to the last detail before even starting; rather doing no job than a half-ass job is his personal opinion, though others don’t share that view…

Strengths & Weaknesses:
Strengths :
Andres’ greatest strength is found in his physical capabilities due to his hereditary nature as a Golem; he’s resilient and resistant against physical altercations, being naturally able of deflecting bullets, strikes and blows as underneath his aged skin lies the secret of his species, the Wurtzite Boron Nitride. He’s got a genuine affinity to stand guard, buckle down and simply taking the hits as he waited for the right moment to strike.  He’s capable of standing up against the toughest fiends out there, getting hit and knocked around often enough to tire them out and unleash his brutal nature.

Another forte of his is his perfectionist attitude to confront the world with, being a calm, composed individual who makes rational decisions in stressful circumstances; he’ll remain decisive and calculated, keeping one eye fixed on the goal, the other on his opponents as he faces off in life. It’s one side of him that has grown stronger through fatherhood, having become a stronger person for it by learning patience, calculation and responsibility. He will play things safe whenever necessary, being aware of his own advantages in resilience and endurance and turning towards the comfortable defensive side. He won’t back down until he’s certain his loved one’s are out of harm’s way, using himself as a solid wall between anyone trying to get to his friends and family…

Weaknesses :
His greatest weakness would be his family, especially his kids who mean the world to him; whenever their safety is threatened, their welfare is endangered, common sense is out the window and fatherly instincts will dominate his every decision. When his children are brought in the equation, Andres will literally throw himself between them and his enemies, forming the last defensive wall where rational choices are absent. He’ll act impulsively, driven by responsibility and raw unedited instincts, which isn’t the safest of decisions. In these circumstances he becomes a liability, unbound and unrestrained from his own nature, turning into a mighty unyielding monstrosity…

Another weakness is significant for his species, almost characteristic to golems, who’re nearly invulnerable against physical attacks, though rather susceptible to magical attacks. They’ve got a natural weakness to water based attacks, where his resilience is turned to a disadvantage in the drowning depths of water. People aligned with this element have an advantage against the rock-based nature, which can take hit after hit, blow after blow without breaking through the petrified surface; those strategic enough to render his surroundings uncontrollable by cutting him off from the earth, will have a slight edge over him, but just barely. In combat one must always consider Andres as the mountain standing in the way, blocking the path and standing tall against every attack…
