Hercules

History

Hercules, then named Alcaeus, is the son of the King of the Greek Pantheon,
Zeus Panhellenios and Alcmena of Thebes in the ancient time of Greece. Now,
unlike most of Zeus's escapades in the field of romance, this was more
trickery. Zeus had impersonated the husband of Alcmena, and thus Hercules was
truly born!

The wife of Zeus, Hera, grew into a jealous rage as she discovered her
husband's adultery, and thus arguably the greatest hero of Greece had enemies
before the day he was even born. In an effort to please the Goddess, Alcmena
named the boy Hercules, which means 'Glory of Hera', but instead of appeasing
Hera, it infuriated her even further. Thus did she send snakes to kill
Hercules while he was still a baby. But even at that age, his strength far
surpassed men, and he killed the snakes with his bare hands, thinking they
were just playmates.

At some point, Hera took pity on Hercules when the child somehow explored too
far away from his parents, and Hera nursed the baby. But, threw him aside when
Hercules apparently hurt her somehow.

As he grew older, Hercules was trained in combat from some of the greatest
teachers around when his legend of strength grew by the day. Somewhere along
the line, he saved the life and city of a King, who gave him the hand of his
daughter, Princess Megara, with whom, Hercules was very happy.

He went on many adventures, sailing with Jason and the Argonauts on the quest
for the Golden Fleece, but the greatest of these adventures, which
immortalized him in the legend of all, was the Twelve Labors.

Hercules was driven int oa bloodrage after a King of another nation killed
his father and law and condemned his family to death, but Hera had cast a
spell on Hercules, sending him into a bloodrage that he could not tell friend
from foe. When he awoke, he discovered that he had murdered his own family AND
the king who condemned them.

Desperate for atonement, he had cried out to his true father, Zeus, to grant
him atonement for his family's death, as well as to prove himself as worthy of
immortality. Thus, one of the greatest adventures in history took place!

After the Labors were completed, Hercules went on far many more adventures,
but none were as challenging nor harsh on his body and soul than the Twelve
Labors. Eventually, his mortal form tired, and Zeus crowned him officially
before the eyes of the Pantheon as Hercules Panhellenios, Prince of Olympus,
officially making him the God of Strength as well.

Now in the modern day, Hercules has left Olympus, and continues his
adventures on the mortal plane!

Personality

Hercules is very confident and gregarious in just about everything he does.
Larger-than-life, he enjoys the pleasures of the world and sticks to a solid
hero mentality of protecting the weak and those of good-heart from the forces
of evil. He believes that life is worth living every single day and that
adventure is just about the only thing worth doing, lest one forget how to
smile once their souls pass into Elysium.

Hercules, at his core, possesses a powerful sense of strength and duty to the
righteous cause of being a hero. He will stand up for whatever is right, no
matter what others may say or think or do about it. Once he's set his mind to
something, it will literally take hell freezing over or simply someone having
a better idea about doing the same exact thing to make him question his
actions.

His true strength is derived from his unbreakable courage, to stand against
all odds for the sake of doing the right thing.

Character Sheet

GODLIKE STAMINA

Due to Hercules's great strength and his Olympian blood, Hercules's body produces no fatigue toxins. He almost never actually gets tired. It's what has allowed him to push on in the face of all of his great Labors. Almost all of his great feats of strength was done without him becoming physically tired or exhausted.

GOD OF STRENGTH

Hercules is the Greek God of Raw Strength. In truth, his great might has earned his namesake, as his strength might very well be unlimited. He can lift far over 100 tons and can keep up with many, if not all of the heavy hitters in terms of physical strength and can surpass many of them. His greatest feat of strength was taking the place of Atlas and lifted up the entirety of the heavens with only mild difficulty. When one says 'Herculean Strength', he's the one who made it a trademark. But he can use the strength of his legs to make giant leaps into the sky, able to jump over tall buildings in a single bound and clap his hands together to produce epic shockwaves.

HEALING

As an Olympian, Hercules can heal very quickly. He can heal broken bones in a few hours and minor wounds in a few minutes. He cannot regenerate lost limbs or organs without outside help.

IMMORTAL

As an Olympian/Human hybrid, Hercules has certainly inherited the true immortality of his people. Beyond his physical prime (about 30 years old), Hercules has stopped aging, despite being born thousands of years ago in Ancient Greece. He is also immune to all earth diseases and toxins, but can be affected by such if it is of a divine nature or magic-based. He also has an extreme tolerance to alcohol, but can still get drunk if he drinks enough of it.

INVULNERABILITY

Legend has it that when Hercules was a baby, he was nursed (for a brief time) by the Goddess Hera herself. Such an act made Hercules Invulnerable, or at the very least extremely resistant to injury of a natural nature. Hercules is the most durable of all the Olympians except for Zeus himself. If struck with a axe, the weapon will break and Hercules will be unharmed. He's been hit with tank shells and only showed annoyance. High calibur bullets only make him laugh 'because it tickled', able to withstand extreme temperatures, fall from tremendous heights, and suffer extreme amounts of energy and still push forward into the fray. Hercules is tough, and it's possibly been the main case for his many victories.

SUPERHUMAN REFLEXES

Hercules is quick on his feet, despite his large build. He is surprisingly flexible and can move quick enough to react to objects as fast as bullets. But that seems to be the limit.

SUPERHUMAN SPEED

Hercules is fast! using the muscles in his legs, he can run up to 115 miles per hour. Under extreme circumstances, he's been known to push himself faster, up to 130 mph.
