Full Name: Jonathan Gardner
Hometown/Base of operations: Migrant
Species: 1/4 Vuldarian, 3/4 Human
Weight: Average for his height.
Hair Color/style: Orange, crew cut.(Dyed)
Equipment and Weapons:
A variety of Fake IDs
Supplies of Cash
A Driver's License
Energy Blade: An Energy Blade that is made out of a Green Hard Light Energy. It's something that he purchased on the Black Market. This is capable of clashing with most weapons without breaking. While it cannot cut through organic material (IE living beings) due to the settings Jonathan keeps it at, it's a good weapon. It's a weapon he keeps on his person, in case he should actually need it when he is costumed. (His blade is the 2nd one.) This is powered by a plasma cell that he must change on a yearly basis. Due to that, Jonathan tends to save up money for this specifically.
Body Armor/Helmet: Body Armor and a Helmet that he purchased. This is made out of a Kevlar-Nomex material similar to what the Bat Suit is made out of, but isn't quite as good. It's a bit heavier, as well. However, it does provide some protection and the helmet contains a Computer System that he can use to research things, and project maps he can see when wearing the helmet. It also acts as a sort of bluetooth headset for him. This was purchased from the Black Market by Jonathan because he knew he'd need a "Costume" of a sort.
Indomitable Will: Jonathan possesses levels of will power that make him able to wield a Green Lantern Ring, even though he'd never be actually chosen by one. What this means is that he can use the tech, provided he had access. Of course his will power is strong, incredibly so actually.
Motorcycle Repair: When it comes to repairing a motorcycle, Jonathan possesses an intermediate level of skill at such allowing him to repair them, even if he does not know enough to build one from scratch.
Krav Maga: Jonathan is intermediately skilled in fighting with Krav Maga.
Free Running: Another skill he picked up that he's intermediate at. This allows him to jump roof tops, and scale buildings easily, though not at the level of a Bat, or similar.
Computer Programming/Repair: One of the other skills he has picked up is computer programming, and repair. While he's not exactly a master at it, he knows enough to get by.
Mechanical Engineering: Yet another skill he's trying to learn, is mechanical engineering. Jonathan wants to become good enough to build stuff, but his skill is amateur at best.
Beginner Swordsman: Jonathan is just learning how to use the Energy Blade that he purchased on the black market, and as such has a long way to go towards mastery.
Weaknesses: (3 minimum)
1.) Powerless: Jonathan does not actually possess any super powers that could be used, at present. This makes him only a man, and a man who cannot protect himself against Metas typically.
2.) Envious: Jonathan is envious of those who have super powers, and wishes he had his own.
3.) Anger Issues: Jonathan possesses issues with controlling his temper, making him comparable to an active volcano.
4.) Easily Manipulated: Should one threaten his surviving family members, this would be one way they could manipulate the young Jonathan Gardner. Of course, offering him super powers and carrying it out would be another way to do so, if they learned of his desire for such.
5.) Strapped for Cash: Sometimes it takes him a while to make the money needed for even basic supplies, as he refuses to use his rights as royalty of Ice's home country.
6.) Self Reliant to a ruinous degree: Jonathan prefers to be self reliant, and is such to a ruinous degree in that he is unlikely to accept help from others without a lot of work on their part.
7.) Needs Training: Jonathan will need training before he can become even an expert with any of the skills he possesses, unfortunately.
8.) Unfitting to be a Lantern: Jonathan would be an ill-fit to be a Green Lantern, or really any other color.
Mother: Ice (Deceased.)
Father: Guy Gardner (Deceased.)
Extended family: Mace Gardner (Uncle) Roland Gardner (Grandfather.) Joe Gardner (Uncle.) Peggy Gardner (Grandmother)
From an early age Jonathan was always fascinated by the Green Lanterns because of the stories he was told by his dad, Guy. Yet he's also had a temper on him that somewhat made him unworthy of a Green Lantern Power Ring. As time progressed he grew to like being without a Power Ring. While he does respect his father and partially respect the books of Oa and the regulations within it, Jonathan believes that they don't apply because he doesn't wield a power ring...or possess potential to wield one.
Should he ever have a special someone, Jonathan would likely be protective of them making him easier to potentially blackmail. Granted it's easy enough as it is if you capture his family. Jonathan secretly wishes he had powers or at least advanced technology that could allow him to simulate having powers, so he wouldn't have to rely on others to deal with Meta Human Threats. Jonathan is also very protective of the young, like his father Guy was even if he knows he will never be a Lantern, or possess super powers without genetic experimentation.
From an early age of four years old, Jonathan was told stories about the Lanterns by Guy Gardner. The stories consisted of many of the battles that the Lanterns had. The stories such as the battle of Parallax motivated Johnny and made him desire to become a Green Lantern and follow in the footsteps of Guy, and the other great lanterns of Earth. When he became about eight years of age Jonathan insisted that Guy teach him how to fight. For four years, Jonathan learned skills in hand to hand combat from Guy. But it wasn't enough because he didn't have a Green Lantern Ring to practice with. When Johnny became twelve years of age exactly however Guy Gardner and Ice went to the battle. During the time of the battle, Johnny had been busy working on training himself in
Krav Maga with the help of some instructors. As the years went by Johnny expected a Lantern Ring of some sort to choose him, but it never happened. When he became 19 years of age and could legally live on his own Johnny set out on his own with nothing but the clothes on his back, a set of brass knuckles, a baseball bat and a motorcycle. Determined to discover where he fits in the grand scheme of things, Johnny's been traveling and trying to find out what he should do with himself. In the mean time Johnny's been doing small jobs like settling disputes between people who can't afford to pay off gang members for protection money, and similar small jobs like that as he travels from city to city.
To supplement this and provide him the money he needs for equipment, Jonathan has started selling his services as a sort of "mercenary" as it were. In reality, he's more of a hero-for-hire, if you happen to be around the towns as he travels. Some equipment was purchased on a black market by Jonathan, namely a laser sword of a sort, and a suit of body armor for himself. Now he's began his debut as a "hero" as it were, though really he hopes to have a chance to be a Lantern one day although he knows it's not likely to happen.
Face Claim/Play by: Garret Hedlund
Sample RP: Sure he might not be Batman but as he was traveling he might as well focus on some of the smaller problems attached to Gotham City, like the Loan Sharks or the other problems. Jonathan sighed as he used the baseball bat he had to collide with the skull of the individual he was currently "talking" to about abusing children. Like his dad would have, Jonathan could not stand it when such happened.
Another whack of the baseball bat was delivered to the man's cranium.
"Get!" Yet another whack was given to the guy.
"To ABUSE YOUR CHILD!" Jonathan stopped when he had knocked the man unconscious.
If there was one thing Jonathan absolutely couldn't stand, it was when a man abused their child. He was like his dad in that respect, but he knew he wasn't his dad. He could never be him, because he couldn't wield a Power Ring, sadly. At least, not a Green One. Sure he had the ring his father had worn for a time, the yellow one but it didn't have any charge and he didn't know how to charge it.
