    SKILLS & ABILITIES


    Skills
    Wolfgang is most notably, a safe cracker. His family is one of many Russian Mafias running around and his father was a safe cracker before him. He taught his son many of these skills when he was young and Wolfgang continued to use these skills because he wanted to compete with his father on this matter. He can crack safes that other people think are uncrackable and generally enjoys overcoming the challenge that safes present. He's an intelligent thief, able to stake out a joint and break into it with a little bit of help from people with different skills.

    Also due to his family's background, Wolfgang knows his way around guns. He's used a variety of small handguns to semi-autos and even a bazooka at one point. While he doesn't have intimate knowledge of guns (he can't say, build them or fix them), he knows which end to point and is a decently good shot most of the time. He's taken on a group of his uncle's enforcers and won before, being smart about how he took on the group (as well as reckless) and using a variety of weapons that he had hidden on his person and environment.

    Lastly, Wolfgang is a fighter. He's been in more physical confrontations than anyone else he's ever known in his life and he doesn't back down. He knows how to hit and how to take a hit. He knows where to hurt a person and how to make sure that they stay down. He also can keep going when others would double over from pain. This is simply due to the rough childhood that he had coupled with his unwavering need to never back down. Needless to say, Wolfgang's been punched in the face a lot in his life.

    Special Abilities
    Wolfgang is a Sensate. This means that he had a psychic connection to seven other people around the world who were born on the same day that he was. He can speak to them as if they were in the same room. He can see, hear, taste, and feel the things that they are feeling. He can also loan his abilities to the other members of his cluster to help them when they need it. They can do the same for him. Therefore, he's able to use the abilities of the other members of his cluster when he needs it. This is really useful when Wolfgang finds himself in terrible situations that he would otherwise not be able to get out of.


    Weaknesses
    The current, most obvious weakness Wolfgang has is the fact that he is the only member of his cluster in Pandora at the moment. He cannot reach out to his cluster mates, cannot use their abilities, and basically that nerfs his special abilities because he cannot use them at all right now.

    If some of his cluster were to show up however, being a Sensate still has other weaknesses. If Wolfgang locks gazes with someone else with the ability, who is not in his cluster, they have a connection. Wolfgang and this person are now able to share thoughts, location, information, etc with each other, just like he would be able to with another member of his cluster. He has no choice in this matter, even if the person is evil and out to get him. If this person wishes Wolfgang harm, they could find him at any given moment. They could know what he's planning and can use that to capture him or harm him.

    Lastly, while Wolfgang is helping other members of his cluster, he's completely vulnerable in his own body. He basically mentally leaves his body to help out others and there for, someone could walk up to him and punch him in the face without Wolfgang doing anything to block it. He has to be careful when he's helping out a cluster mate, because if he was doing something that requires his attention (like driving), then bad things are going to happen to him.

    PERSONALITY


    At first glance, Wolfgang seems like a normal, rough around the edges type of guy. He's quiet and broody in most situations, but he has a streak of dark humor laced through it all. He's someone who believes that everyone's got a darker side to them and that thinks good things don't just happen to people. He's confrontational and despite repeated attempts of being taught this, he doesn't believe in family loyalty just because you're born into a family.

    His loyalty is hard won and not easily given. Wolfgang is a person who believes he's better off by himself in many ways, but he has moments of loneliness in all. On the other hand, Wolfgang believes in doing what's right for himself. He doesn't like to lie, he doesn't believe in making other people like him, nor does he care if other people like him. He's just here to do what he needs to do.

    Wolfgang also believes that everyone is going to die sooner or later, so what's the point in worried about mundane things? He's not ashamed of the things he does, having a casual attitude about drugs, drinking, nudity, and other relative things. If you're not hurting other people, then who gives a shit? He also has an authority figure problem, doesn't like to be told what to do, and doesn't care about laws. Laws are made to be broken.


    APPEARANCE

    Wolfgang is of average height and weight. He's in decent shape from the amount of fights he's been in on top of keeping himself generally in shape at the gym. He has short, dirty blonde hair and hazel eyes. There's typically a layer of stubble on his chin. He wears pretty normal clothing: black leather jackets, grey t-shirts, a good pair of jeans, and dependable shoes. All in all a good looking but normal guy.

    HISTORY

    Wolfgang was born in East Berlin, Germany on August 8th. His father Anton was a Russian Immigrant who moved to East Berlin when the family "business" decided to relocate to the city. Wolfgang had a terrible childhood. His mother died when he was young and his father was an abusive drunk. He always hit Wolfgang whenever he was around, so Wolfgang tried to stay away from home as much as possible. When he was in elementary school, he met another kid named Felix who he quickly befriended (or rather Felix befriended him). Because he was half Russian, there were many German families who did not like Wolfgang and his father. Because of this, Wolfgang was often in fights after and during school, defending himself from other kids who thought to pick on him. Felix helped him fight back and the two boys became inseparable.

    When Wolfgang was ten years old, he killed his father. Wolfgang had had enough of the beatings and abuse, and strangled his father to death with a belt. Because he did this in the middle of an alley while the two of them were walking home, everyone believed that it was some sort of gang related crime that went unsolved. Wolfgang was taken in by his father's younger brother, Sergei. Sergei became the head of the family business and while he was never a nice man, he wasn't cruel to Wolfgang either. He treated Wolfgang properly, like a nephew, and helped continue his education in the family business.

    So life for Wolfgang was fairly normal given where he lived and what he did until he was twenty seven years old. At this time, he became Sensate and quickly connected with the other members of his cluster: Will, Sun, Nomi, Kala, Lito, Capheus, and Riley. Despite the fact that this was a weird situation, Wolfgang embraced it well and adapted to it quickly. He came to realize that he was attracted to Kala and spent a lot of time talking to her despite the fact she was in India, engaged to another man. He managed to even delay their wedding, appearing to Kala during her wedding ceremony and telling her not to do it because she didn't love him.

    Things went south for Wolfgang after he and Felix decided to steal some diamonds that Wolfgang's cousin Steiner wanted. They broke into the place and Wolfgang picked the lock of a safe that was called uncrackable right before Steiner showed up to blow the safe. The two were in the process of trying to sell the diamonds when his cousin and uncle got wind of it. Because they considered this a betrayal to the family, Steiner did a drive by shooting at the store that Felix worked at as a front for his thievery, which resulted in Felix almost dying.

    Wolfgang managed to get Felix to a semi-safe hospital and then contacted his uncle to get the problem solved. He arranged a meeting with his cousin, supposedly to give him the rest of the diamonds, but instead killed his cousin and his cousin's friends. Lito, his cluster mate, helped him lie to Steiner to keep the man distracted while grabbing a gun from under Wolfgang's car. Wolfgang killed his cousin using a bazooka.

    Knowing that things were swiftly going to come to a head, Wolfgang went to his uncle's home to confront the man and kill him. Wolfgang knew that his uncle would find and kill Felix as soon as possible, so Wolfgang walked in and shot him. Unfortunately, his uncle had been wearing a bullet proof vest, which resulted in Wolfgang having a shoot out with his uncle and his uncle's enforcers in the house. The end result was Wolfgang the only living person who left the house, but he had help from several of his cluster mates at this point. As Wolfgang left the house, black vines rose from the ground and swept him away to Pandora.

    ROLEPLAY SAMPLE

    His head was killing him. Things ached that weren't supposed to ache and he felt as if he had been struck by a truck going at least 60mph. A groan escaped him and he tried to open his eyes. Of course everything hurt, he had been in two fights on the same day, and things weren't going to get too easy if he stuck around... where ever he was. He wasn't outside of his uncle's house, that much was clear, but Wolfgang figured he had wandered off in a haze of pain and wound up... on a rooftop? He was certainly on top of someone's home.

    A bit of a sigh escaped the man as he sat back. He had been sitting when he woke up, back against a portion of the roof that stuck up. A chimney, right, that's what that was. His hazel eyes quickly looked at the roofs he was surrounded by and Wolfgang fished into one of his pockets for the half a pack of smokes he had. They were a little bit crushed from something that had happened in one of the fights, but otherwise they were fine. He pulled one out and pressed it between his lips, squinting those hazel eyes around. None of the buildings looked like anything that belonged to the rich area that his uncle lived in. Nor did they look like something you could find in downtown East Berlin, where Wolfgang lived.

    So where the hell was he?

    He took a deep drag on the smoke, trying to force his way through recent memories to put two and two together. His ribs hurt when he breathed, which meant at least one of them was broken. Not that anyone could do anything about a broken rib, he merely registered the pain and shrugged it off for the moment. He'd worry about it when he had to get up. Wolfgang remembered leaving the house. He remembered Kala creating the bomb out of things from under the sink. Kala... no, it was better if he didn't reach out to her. It was better if they never spoke again. She knew him now. She knew he was a killer and that he was bad for her. It was best to leave it that way. Wolfgang took another drag and looked up when a door to the roof started to open. Apparently someone had heard him up here. He groaned again as he tried to get to his feet, hoping that the person was just curious and not a threat. He had killed all his uncle's enforcers right? If it was someone left over or even a cop, Wolfgang was going to be in some serious trouble.
