    Samus Aran [Metroid]

    Post by Samus Aran on Sun Dec 18, 2016 4:50 am

    --PROFILE--

    Name: Samus Aran

    Age: Unknown, appears to be in her late-twenties

    Species: Human (with Chozo DNA)

    Appearance:
    At over six feet three inches tall, Samus Aran is a beautifully statuesque woman of near-pure muscle with the lithe appearance of a gymnast. Her soft and rounded facial structure is a sharp contrast to her long, narrow eyes which are dark blue with a tint of green, thin eyebrows, and full lips that are typically curled into a stoic frown -- a beauty mark rests to the left of her lips. She has long blonde hair that she typically ties it into a high ponytail while letting her bangs flow freely, with two long strands flowing down both sides of her head. Outside of missions, she prefers to dress lightly, usually in shorts, tank tops, and boots that are dark blue or bright orange.

    During missions, she dons a hulking suit of power armor with a massive blue cannon attached to her right arm. The suit is dominantly orange and red-colored, with the helmet's visor being an illuminating green. While in this suit, she wears a blue skin-tight bodysuit with pink symbols on her left breast and upper back.

    Background:

    Born on the planet K-2L, Samus Aran experienced hardship at the age of three when Space Pirates led by their captain, Ridley, invaded her colony and massacred everyone, including her parents. A bird-like race known as the Chozo, who had intercepted the planet's distress beacon, saved the infant girl, bringing her to their home planet Zebes. To ensure the young human survived the planet's increased gravity and climate, she was infused with Chozo DNA and trained by the Chozo to be a warrior. By the age of fourteen, she had far exceeded the physical limitations of her species, being capable of running faster, jumping higher, and hitting harder than a regular human in addition to being capable of surviving alien climates that would kill most humans. Their greatest gift to her, however, was their bio-mechanical power armor, a hyper-advanced technological masterpiece. She would eventually leave Zebes as a young woman determined to use her gifts to protect others.

    Emerging out of nowhere in civilized space, Samus made waves in the Galactic Federation, where she would work under the command of Commander Adam Malkovich. Her tendency to disobey orders was counterbalanced by an extreme degree of hyper-competence in military operations. To the shock of the Federation, she eventually abandoned her post after numerous operations against the Space Pirates on other human colonies. The name Samus Aran soon became synonymous with her new profession as a bounty hunter, and lone operations against the Space Pirates cemented her reputation as the best bounty hunter in the galaxy.

    Some years later, the Federation contacted Samus with a mission to destroy a Space Pirate base on the planet Zebes. There, the bounty hunter encountered Ridley for the second time, and in the ensuing battle ended his life. The Space Pirate base brought her into contact with the Metroids, a mindless race of energy-draining alien lifeforms controlled by Mother Brain. After destroying the monstrous creature, she escaped the destruction of the facility in one piece, only to be shot back down to Zebes by pursuing Space Pirate fighters. With her ship and power armor rendered useless, she infiltrated the Space Pirate Mothership in the hopes of stealing another vessel, only to be detected and driven to the ruins of a nearby Chozo temple.

    Within the temple, Samus completed an ancient trial created by the Chozo, receiving a new, superior suit of power armor in the process. With this suit, she stormed the Space Pirate Mothership, killing every one of their crew in addition to a robotic replica of their captain, Ridley. As the ship was destroyed around her, she escaped in one of the Space Pirate Fighter ships. This incident crippled the Space Pirates' campaign of galactic conquest for years to come, and the remaining forces learned to hate and fear the armored warrior they named "The Hunter."

    Her career would take her through several adventures and innumerable planets, most of which were the source of a great many evils. Throughout the years, she would confront a new threat on the planet Tallon IV, Phazon, in addition to Ridley, who had survived their first battle and underwent numerous cybernetic enhancements. In the depths of Tallon IV, she overcame the ghosts of the Chozo, Meta Ridley, and a highly evolved creature known as the Metroid Prime. The echoes of Phazon would create a dark clone of herself, which she battled on the planet Aether. In the process, Samus saved a race called the Luminoth from the imperialistic Ing.

    The threat of Phazon grew with this passing mission, and in another assignment in which she teamed up with other renowned bounty hunters, she fought across numerous planets, killing the deceased and Phazon-infused bounty hunters in the process -- it was during this adventure that she encountered Ridley once again, and in their battle she vanquished him on the Space Pirate homeworld. She would then journey to the planet Phaaze and lead a Federation assault on the planet. Battling against her own corruption, she destroyed the planet's core and escaped, ensuring that all traces of Phazon in the galaxy were wiped out.

    After this ordeal, Samus again encountered the Metroids on planet SR338. Descending to the depths of a volcano, she eliminated a Queen Metroid and seemingly eliminated the entire species for good, save for a single egg that hatched into a Metroid infant. Showing mercy, Samus took the infant into her care, ultimately turning it over to the Federation for research purposes. Unfortunately, this prompted the Space Pirates, led by the surviving Ridley, to attack and abduct the infant. Not willing to let a Metroid fall into Space Pirate hands, Samus pursued their forces back to Zebes, where they rebuilt their first base from many years ago.

    On Zebes, Samus destroyed the Space Pirate forces station in the base, including their new commander, a revived Mother Brain. In this battle, Samus was saved by the baby Metroid, which sacrificed itself, giving her enough time to destroy her foe once for all. Escaping to her ship, Samus watched as Zebes itself was destroyed with the base, wiping all traces of her homeworld from existence. With the memories of her home planet all that remained, Samus's ship took off into the dark expanse of space, ready for another mission.

    Personality:
    Samus Aran is defined by her boundless courage in the face of the evil in the galaxy, often diving headfirst into impossible battles alone. Though a bounty hunter by trade, she is exceedingly selfless, typically refusing payment and helping others in need for the sake of it. This warrior lifestyle has led her to be a rather solitary person who prefers to work alone, and in the presence of a group, she is typically unwilling to follow orders, instead preferring to trust her own judgement and instincts. This lone wolf style is one she greatly enjoys, and her confidence in her equipment and abilities have seen her through overwhelming odds time and time again. While she enjoys exploring, she places a priority on saving others, as she despises those who prey on the weak.

    In the humdrum normalcy of civilized society, she is a stoic woman whose tendency to live alone in space has negatively impacted her ability to relate with others. Though friendly to others, she is nonetheless distant and a woman of few words in most conversations. Fights and competition are typically how she opens up to others.

    Strengths:
    Chozo DNA & Training - Samus was infused with Chozo DNA and raised from the age of three on a hostile planet. By the time she was a young woman, she had already exceeded the limits of the human body. With the speed of a cheetah, the strength of an elephant, and the ability to jump several feet into the air, she is a highly dangerous person even outside of her power armor. She has also become highly flexible, being capable of squeezing into tight crevices, perform highly athletic maneuvers, and contort herself into impossible positions. Thanks to the strengthening of her body, she can survive falls and take hits that would kill normal humans, as well as tolerate pain to a far greater degree.

    Power Armor - The deadliest weapon in Samus's arsenal is her Chozo-made biomechanical power armor suit, a full-body set of armor that allows its wearer to survive indefinitely in hazardous environments. Its distinctive arm cannon can fire a wide array of projectiles, from charged energy beams of various elemental properties, to explosive missiles, to a beam of energy that functions as a grappling device. The visor provides biological information of indigenous life forms and structures of interest that are stored in a database, night vision, and a remote x-ray scan function. The suit itself utilizes energy shielding to protect the wearer from all manner of attacks, and the intense physical and mental concentration required to utilize it ensures that Samus alone can use it to its fullest potential. The suit is designed to be highly upgradable, with Chozo artifacts being the most compatible technology.

    Combat Experience - After surviving numerous adventures, Samus has years of experience under her belt. In terms of battle, she is an expert marksman whose reflexes are almost superhuman. While her suit is designed to fire projectiles, she is known for rushing down her opponents and overwhelming them with brute strength before using her suit's cannon to finish them off. Outside of her suit, she utilizes a wide array of acrobatic maneuvers and punishing punches and kicks delivered at dizzying speeds to overcome foes that may be stronger than her. She is also highly intelligent, taking advantage of her environment and scanning technology to both uncover and exploit the weaknesses of her opponents.

    Weaknesses:
    Suitless - While stronger than a normal human, Samus's power lies almost entirely in her power armor, which puts her on even ground with the many enhanced life forms of the Breach. Outside of her armor, she has nothing to defend herself with, and her skin-tight Zero Suit offers only token protection from most attacks. Although she is faster without it, the cost of firepower and protection do not offset the advantage this gives her.

    Recklessness - As a veteran bounty hunter who has overcome many battles all by herself, Samus is accustomed to charging into dangerous situations alone. In spite of the Breach's effect on her suit, she trusts in experience to see her through battles with more powerful opponents. Though she is smart enough to flee from overwhelming odds, painful first lessons in humility are unavoidable.

    Hyper Lethal - Subtlety is not a word that Samus Aran is aware of. She is a highly trained, highly efficient killing machine who would prefer to shoot first and ascertain intentions later. If she's hit first, she'll hit back, hard. Situations that call for a more delicate or diplomatic touch are best left to someone else, because if Samus is the one dealing with the problem, then there's probably going to be a massive explosion shortly afterwards.

    World:
    Zebes is the homeworld of the Chozo who raised Samus, training her to be a warrior on a planet normally unsuitable for life. The increased gravity and numerous hostile organisms in the hollow planet's caverns bred a harsh environment. Zebes was ultimately destroyed following the reconstruction of the original Space Pirate facility that housed Mother Brain and her Metroids.

    Group(s): Human

    --PRESENTATION--

    Space, the eternally silent expanse of black amid countless trillions of stars and worlds. Within the cockpit of a single-person fighter, the pilot felt more at home in this quiet, lonely frontier than she did on human colonies with other people. She was the legendary bounty hunter, scourge of Phazon and Ridley's Pirates, liberator of the Luminoth, and destroyer of worlds -- she was Samus Aran, inheritor of the Chozo legacy. That type of resume made it a bit difficult to have a casual conversation in the local bar, even if it was enjoyable to see the stunned reactions when the bartender discovered that the pride and joy of humanity was an attractive blonde in short shorts and a thin tank top. That's why, outside of missions, she found herself staring into space... and thinking.

    She thought about that fateful attack on K-2L, the slaughter of her home. She thought about her adoptive family, the Old Bird and his people who raised her up, trained her to kill, trusted her to use their technology to save lives. She thought about Adam Malkovich, the stern commander whose respect she never felt, but always yearned for. She thought about Rundas, Gandrayda, and Ghor, fellow bounty hunters she'd respected, all dead at her hand because of the Phazon that corrupted them. The people she'd met, the trials she'd overcome, the things she'd accomplished over so many years, everything that morphed Samus Aran into the woman she was today.

    Some might have thought it odd for her to look back on all of these experiences with such subdued emotion -- the galaxy hailed her as a hero, but Samus herself considered her actions as nothing more than several jobs well done. There were personal stakes in some, such as Ridley's stubborn refusal to stay beyond the void, but by and large they were still just jobs, responsibilities she owed to the galaxy and the Chozo for gifting her with the means to help others. Though curiosity pushed her to the unknown and the thrill of battle steeled her will, the memories of K-2L, of the childhood and the normal life that was robbed from her, pushed the bounty hunter to stand against whatever evils the galaxy produced. With Zebes reduced to nothing, memories of the promise she'd made to Old Bird were all she had left.

    Then, in void of space, a rift opened up. It was a massive gate of sorts, with swirling energy filling the space it had cut open. Samus's gaze narrowed to it, and she wondered if it was by chance that this gate had just happened to open up before her... or if it had opened because of her. Irregardless, that sense of wonder, that curiosity, began to take hold of the bounty hunter. Taking up the controls, Samus's vessel pushed towards the portal...

    ...into the unknown, one of many unknowns she conquered time and time again.
