Player: Lorak (Temporary Name)
Demeanor: Intimidating, Confident, Outgoing
Nature: Protective, Loyal, Honest, Friendly
Description: Herb is 16 years old, but looks older than he is, due to sporting a beard at an early age. He stands about 6'3" and looks like he must weigh around 400 lbs (though he truly weighs much more). Fat, yes, but there's a ton of muscle underneath all that padding. He has lightly tanned skin and blue eyes with very short black hair and a neatly trimmed goatee on his round face. He has a deep, gruff voice for his age, and walks with heavy footsteps that seem to shake the ground. He's usually wearing a t-shirt or his football jersey and jeans or shorts, no matter the weather.

Things your character is good at, things normal people can do
- Wrestling: 4 (Brawn) Herb is very formidable in unarmed combat, able to easily lift enemies over his head and throw them across a room, or use his size and strength to crush them.
- Intimidation: 4 (Brawn) Herb is big, and when he tries to look mean, it's hard to not be fearful of him.
- Throwing: 4 (Brawn) Herb is able to throw anything he can pick up, powerfully and accurately.
- Athletics: 3 (Agility) Despite his size, Herb is still fairly athletic, having played one sport or another for most of his life. He can be surprisingly quick, in short bursts.
These are things you're character accomplishes via their power or monster
- Super Dense Body (4) - Every part of Herb's body is extremely dense, resulting in him being significantly heavier, stronger, and more durable than he should be.
- Iron Stomach (3) - He is capable of eating nearly anything and gets nutritional benefit from it (even if it normally has none), as long as it will fit in his mouth, and he is immune to any consumed toxins. This includes drugs and alcohol. He is not immune to other delivery methods such as injection, or inhalation, but he is still very resistant to them due to his size.
The side effect of your powers, not necessary.
- Mentle Weakness - Herb isn't the brightest bulb in the box, and despite his physical strength, he is relatively easy to manipulate and control through mental attacks.
- Always Hungry - Herb's body uses an enormous amount of energy, and he is always craving food, no matter how much he has eaten, and his iron stomach is virtually bottomless. If he has not eaten enough recently, he becomes weaker due to a lack of energy to sustain himself, and he is mentally addicted to food as well, so he also becomes grumpy and irritable. On the bright side, he can win any food eating contest.
- Large and Extremely Heavy - Although Herb is strong enough to carry his weight well and this doesn't really affect him much personally, it still has a negative impact. If he is injured, moving him is very difficult, and he has a tendency to break furniture, weak floors/stairs, small vehicles, etc, and this also makes being stealthy very difficult for him.
- Doesn't Know His Own Strength - Herb is extremely big and strong, and doesn't have the fine motor skills to always keep it in check. It is easy for him to accidentally damage or break fragile objects while handling them, and physical contact with smaller and weaker people is not entirely safe. He may look cuddly, but it is not recommended to ask for a hug.

Herb had a relatively normal childhood, for someone with his abilities. He was always big, even as a child and he realized at a very young age that he was significantly stronger than other kids his age, and his parents caught on to it quickly as well due to his ravenous appetite and frequent breaking of his toys. Herb's father was a police officer, and knew that children with special abilities tended to disappear, so he was fairly protective of his son, which is a trait Herb inherited, and ingrained in him the importance that he not let other people know how strong he was.
Herb always wanted to be on the wrestling team at school, but they had weight limits which he far surpassed, so he went for the next best thing and started playing football. This didn't stop him from practicing his wrestling moves on his little brother and best friend, though, despite his parents' attempts to get him to stop for fear of him injuring one of them.
Herb never did particularly well in school, but when he started playing football, people started paying attention to him. He did his best to hold himself back while playing so as not to hurt anyone or make it known exactly how strong he was, but he loved the attention he got from doing so well for his team. When he was in his last year of middle school, he had been scouted by a coach from Milton High School who took their football seriously, and had the second best football program in the state. He felt with Herb on his team, they could be number one, so he pulled some strings and despite Herb not actually living in Milton's district, he ended up attending the coach's school.
The coach did much more for Herb, as well. He made sure Herb didn't have to worry as much about his grades and school work, and suddenly he was doing much better in his classes and the coach promised him if he continued to play well, he would have a football scholarship to any university he wanted, which was great, since Herb's family couldn't really afford to pay for college themselves.
In Herb's 10th grade year, he was playing the biggest game of the school year, against their rival school who was ranked #1. Both teams were undefeated and the rival school's quarterback was the best the state had seen in years. He was fast, and pinpoint accurate with his throws and despite Herb being able to plow through the rival's offensive line, he was never able to catch the quarterback and sack him before he got off his passes, which were almost always successful.
During half-time, Herb's team was losing by seven points, and the coach pulled Herb to the side to have a talk with him. He told Herb that their team would never be able to win this game as long as the rival quarterback stayed in the game. He wanted Herb to foul him, tackle him as hard as he could after he threw his next pass and make sure to fall and land on him to try to injure him. Herb did not want to do it, but the coach said if he didn't, he would kick Herb off the team, he wouldn't get his scholarship, and he would likely fail high school without the coach pulling strings to up his grades, so eventually Herb reluctantly agreed.
When Herb went back out on the field for the second half, he did as he was told. The rival team hiked the ball and he charged forward. He knocked two linemen out of his way as usual and went for the quarterback, and again the quarterback managed to get his pass off before Herb could reach him. But this time Herb didn't stop like he should have. The quarterback watched his throw, thinking he was safe, when suddenly Herb slammed into him anyway, wrapped his arms around him, and fell on top of him with a sickening crunch.
It was a blatant foul, and Herb was immediately removed from the game for unsportsmanlike conduct. The quarterback was taken to the hospital in critical condition. He had been crushed under Herb's immense weight and was barely alive, with most of his body broken. When the extent of his injuries became clear, the police came into the locker room where Herb was and arrested him. Herb felt terrible and he was questioned at the police station where he insisted it was an accident and he did not mean to hurt the other kid so badly. After speaking to his father and explaining what happened, he spent the night at the police station, and the following morning he was picked up by the G.W.U. and taken to SunnyBrook.
His favorite food is anything.
Do not call him fat.
