Special

Special: "Golden Prowess." Golden Crystal engulfs Dominator with energy and his power is highly increased, but at a price since he is wounded by his own attacks as well (to a lesser extent then the target). Dominator can charge to Golden Prowess times 2, Golden Prowess times 3, or Golden Prowess times 4 (this is all his body can handle currently).

Dominator's strength, speed, skills, and weapon's power are all increased. This ability allows Dominator to become a formidable warrior. However, the more he pushes his ability the more HP he looses. It is possible that Dominator could go past Golden Prowess times 4, but this would be extremely dangerous to him. It is said that Golden Crystal has even greater power if all the Crystals are embedded into Rune Sword.

At level 2, Dominator's AP and counters are multiplied by 2 (at level 3, by 3; and at level 4, by 4). However, if Dominator is using Golden Prowess, he looses HP equal to his attack's AP (or counter's ability) divided by 5. When Dominator activates Golden Prowess, Rune Sword unleashes an attack of 300 times X AP (where X is the level of Golden Prowess). Level 1 is Dominator's normal power and he can unleash a 100AP attack with no HP loss on his part, by concentrating his energy.

Background

Full Background

(Note: This background is unknown to his teammates. It is highly unlikely that some events could be discovered, though other might be known if appropriate to the character [a reploid who was exiled might have heard of Dominator. He would know Dominator fairly well if he lived in Dusktown.])

Dominator was created in 2108, during the maverick wars, by Dr. James Namar. He joined the Maverick Hunters and fought during MMX3. Whenever he could he talked with Namar, who was like a father to him. Dominator continued service during MMX4 and then Zero went maverick in 2110. Dominator reluctantly stayed with the Hunters to try and crush Zero's movement. The death of X and Zero hit him hard, and he took a leave of absence from the MH to think about the future. He stayed with Dr. Namar, who was worried about the ramifications as well. When they returned to Washington DC from Namar's summer retreat in 2111, they found their fears were relized.

Finding a reploid being stoned to death, Dr. Namar quickly intervened with a speech against civil violence. He argued that this reploid hadn't done any damage, it was Zero. He said that it was immoral to hold a member of a species responcible for his species crimes, and asked if they were responcible for any human criminals crimes. His arguement was trenchant enough to stop the mob, but more newcomers came and rallied the mob. The mob began to close in and one human shot Dr. Namar, wounding him. Dominator, filled with rage, attacked the sniper and fended off the humans with all his might. Dominator wounded several and killed others, as they overcame him and killed Namar. Dominator went berserk and fought the mob with all his might. They attacked him violently and badly damaged him. During this time, the human who shot Namar was trampled to death. Dominator was captured by human authorities, who suceeded in breaking the mob up after 20 minutes.

Dominator was tried for murder and assault against humans. He was quickly moved through the "justice" system, and convicted of all crimes. Previously, Dominator's status as a law-abiding member of the MH would allowed him to keep all his rights. Now, he was sentenced to exile in the "wasteland", the land that Zero's missles had destroyed. He was taken to one of the camps outside the wasteland, after several attempts against the guards which he did to try and force them to kill him. He journeyed with a group of reploids, on the other side of the "Iron Gate".

Dominator collasped from his wounds, which were untreated by either Dominator or any other. Another reploid tried to convence him to continue, right before Dominator fell unconcious. He wakes up later, finding himself healed. The reploid who saved him introduces himself as Venerator. Dominator protests against the reploids "wasting" their precious resources on him, but soon finds he must throw away his regrets and past. He becomes friends with Venerator, who soon has to leave. Venerator is going to unite the exiled reploids, so they can all join in to provide for their needs. He leaves Dominator in charge of "Dusktown", the name of their city.

Dominator's life is hard, and every day may mean life or death. The reploids must work all the time, drilling for elusive oil and other minerals in the wasteland, so they can survive. CorSec, the new military group, attacks other cities and maverick groups. Dusktown remains unharmed and the saga of life under harship continues.

By 2125, the reploids have exhausted all their resources and the end may be soon. Venerator returns with news that they are being supplied by a group called REBEL. Though he doesn't agree with its purposes, he has gladly excepted its support. After a party for the return of Venerator and their good fortune, Venerator must leave once again after spending time with Dominator.

In 2134, during CorSec's attempts to destroy REBEL and all supposed Mavericks, Dusktown is attacked. Dominator defends his home valiantly, but fails and the town is destroyed. Dominator somehow survived, and moves on towards the next city. After years of wandering, Dominator finally joins a maverick group in 2141, his hatred of CorSec at its peak. He is a member for 20 years, and his group becomes the strongest current group since REBEL was long since beaten. He discovers that he had been captured by CorSec after the Dusktown battle, when he looses control of himself. Under this control he gives the location of his maverick base to CorSec. He rips out the implants later, and rushes to warn the others, but it is to late. The maverick group is decimated and Dominator survives, though he regrets he did.

Dominator begins to wander and becomes reclusive. Dominator wanders from 2161 to 2179. In 2179, he returns to Dusktown to mourn, as he annually does. There he is found by Venerator, who tells him of the alien attack on Earth and the reformation of the Maverick Hunters. Venerator convinces Dominator that they must save Earth, since its their planet too, and help make reploids accepted once more. They agree to try to get CorSec to be dibanded. Dominator leaves the wasteland with Venerator, after 60 long, hard years.

Venerator is named the leader of the MH by EarthGov, and CorSec's plea to disallowed the new Maverick Hunters is denied by EarthGov. Venerator appoints Dominator his second in command. Dominator finally finds happiness for a short time, as he and Venerator plan out their new team. As their space station around one of the moons of Jupiter, Venerator sends Dominator to find Death Star. Dominator finds DS and convinces him to join. Dominator realizes DS was the leader of REBEL soon after.

However, as a cargo shuttle approaches the docking bay, Venerator is touring the newly finished station. The shuttle accelerates at the last moment and rams the docking bay, exploding with the might of exlposives which it was most-likely carrying, unknown to the station. Venerator is killed in the explosion, since he was close to that area. Dominator is greatly saddened by this, as well as angered at CorSec, who he suspects orchestrated the crash, with renewed rage.

EarthGov now deliberates on whether or not to give Dominator command. When CorSec lobbies that Dominator was a dangerous maverick, EarthGov decides to have him become second-in-command. Death Star is given command of the MH, with Dominator as his second-in-command.

Dominator has lived through much sadness and loss, but refuses to let Earth fall. He has been given renewed hope in peace, by Venerator, and will continue toward this goal with all his might.


Looks/Personality

Looks: Dominator is 6'3" in height. He has dark green eyes. His faced is lined and rough from his life in the wasteland. Dominator has a scar which goes across from the bottom of his right cheek and to his eye, it then continues at the top of his eye mid-way up his forehead. This was from a wound that took his right eye out (during the mob attack), and he the scar was left when his eye was fixed (due to resources), and Dominator has left it this way ever since. Dominator has dark black hair, that is trimmed but fairly thick. His skin has a dark tan to it from the decades he was in the sun.

Dominator wears armor that has the basic color of jet black. Emerald green is located in the center and several other areas. He had worn a black helmet, which he recieved when he went into service of the MH again. It was destroyed in mission 1 (the Hypertrap, part 1), and he hasn't bothered to replace it, so he no longer wears a helmet.

Dominator has a mounted blaster on each arm. On his right arm, Thunder Bolt is mounted. On his left arm, Enemy Ensnare is mounted. This allows him use of his hands while not forgoing a blaster. Since he is a reploid, he has equal ability with both his right and left hand.

Dominator has a commanding presence, and a powerful voice that seems to convey authority. The trials he has under gone can be seen, but he hasn't lost his strength and will to go on.

Personality: As said before, Dominator has a commanding presence. He is a no-nonsense officer, and takes duty very seriously. He feels his duty is to Earth, and won't fight blindly for the goals of others. He very intelligent, and he has much experience. He is difficult to talk to, if its not about the mission or the team. He doesn't wish to talk about his past, but doesn't try to bury it either. With the loss of Venerator, Dominator is sure his goals (which were Venerator's as well) are correct. He will let history judge him as it will, for he feels that his path is set.

He feels strongly about all his officers making it out of the mission alive, unless the goal and stakes are high enough. He wouldn't leave a soldier behind, for he knows what loss feels like. He is a good leader, but often grows tired of those who take their job cavalierly and without seriousness. He despises loners, and feels that if a soldier won't protect his teammates and work together then he is a danger to the team, and hurts them more than he helps.

Dominator's ideals are that of the past. From a time when it looked like humans and reploids would live together in peace and Earth would finally be free of war. His hatred for the loss of the life that should have been his, is directed at CorSec and not human's in general. He feels that hating all humans for CorSec's deeds, is the same as hating all reploids for Zero's deeds.


Other Information

Rune Sword: Created many centuries ago, it is thought that Rune Sword is a mystical blade. Its maker is unknown, as is the time it was created. It is a powerful sword, that is made of an unknown metal. It is thought to be unbreakable. It possesses great power, and can unite with the Rune Crystals (see Rune Crystals Information). It is thought that it was once barried by a magnificant warrior who gathered all the Rune Crystals and achieved his full power on a daring quest to save everything. It isn't known whether or not this is simply a myth though.

Dominator was given Rune Sword by Dr. Namar, who had it passed down the family line since James's great-grandfather who had recieved it from his friend who was an archaeologist who had found it on a dig. Dominator greatly values this sword, and relies on it in combat.

Rune Sword is supposedly the blade of good, and has the power to unite the Rune Crystals.

Rune Crystals: On Rune Sword there are 8 spots on the handle for crytals (see Rune Sword Weapon Description). The Rune Crystals go there. The Rune Crystals are powerful gems that give Dominator additional power. They only work when embedded into Rune Sword (or Dark Sabre). The Rune Crystal are: Silver Crystal, Ebony Crystal, Azure Crystal, Purple Cyrstal, Crimson Crystal, Grey Crystal, Emerald Crystal, and Teal Crystal, plus the Golden Crystal which goes in the center.

Dominator was given Silver Crystal by Namar, who had discovered its power when united with Rune Sword. Sometime when Dominator was exiled in the wasteland, he found the Golden Crystal on a dig for oil. Upon touching it and drawing Rune Sword, it merged into the middle of the hilt. Dominator then knew what the crystals were and that he must look for them as his days progress.

Dominator is currently looking for the others as he performs his duty. He seems to feel that he will find them all in time eventually. There power together supposedly exceeds any power ever seen, but at what price? This is not yet known, and may not be known until Dominator gathers them all. Dominator posses one of the eight crystals, plus the Golden Crystal.

Dark Sabre: Dark Sabre is supposedly the blade of evil, and has the power to unite the Rune Crystals. It is said that Dark Sabre and Rune Sword are the foils of each other. It is not known whether or not this blade really exists, and if so who (if anyone) has it.
