Background

Danny Javier, a geologist was studying Mt. Pinatubo, when the ground beneath him collapsed sending him plummeting into a deep cavern. As he got up, the ground shook and lava started to pour out the sides of the cavern. Soon, the outcropping that Danny was on was completely surrounded by the molten lava. Danny thought he was done for and got on his knees to pray to God. After he said his prayer, he looked down and saw a large orange gemstone lying on the ground. He picked it up and instantly passed out.

When he woke up, Danny found himself about a mile away from the volcano. He also found that his body had changed. He now had grey skin with crimson red eyes. The orange gemstone that he had discovered was now embedded in his chest. As he made his way through the jungle back to civilization, he discovered that his strength had increased and his skin was tough enough to shrug off a lot of damage.

When he got back to Manila, he decided that he had been saved for a reason. He decided that reason was to protect the people of the Philippines. He put on a costume and took the name Abo, which means ash in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines. He has, in a way replaced Aliguyon, as the premier superhero operating in the Philippines. They have met on numerous occasions when Aliguyon has come back to visit the Philippines. They have noticed how their gemstones are very similar.

Abo has also fought Dumaguete, a supervillain who belongs to the group Gauntlet. Each time they have fought, Abo has beaten him, but Dumaguete has always escaped. Dumaguete has promised revenge, but has not been able to get it yet.

The Filipino government has recently asked Abo to become the leader of a Filipino national superhero team. Abo is now in the process of looking at acceptable applicants.

Notes: Abo was originally a player character of mine during the 4th edition days. I had to upgrade him substantially to boost him to 5th edition levels. In the disadvantages, Basura (trash in Tagalog) is a supervillain that can cause things to decay and rot. I have not written him up. Sharon Domingo is a reporter for one of the TV stations in Manila. Abo met her after he rescued her from an attack by Dumaguete and romance soon blossomed.

 

Personality

Abo has a very outgoing personality. He is a very caring person and is often out in the public trying to give hope to the Filipino people.

 

Quote

“Nothing can defeat the spirit of the Filipino people!”

 

Powers

Abo has super strength and his skin is impervious to lots of damage. He is able to shrug off a lot of damage, particularly if it is heat or fire-based. He has also learned to use his strength to great effect and in ways that might surprise his opponent.

 

Appearance

Abo has grey rocklike skin. His eyes are now a deep crimson red. He wears a costume that is modelled after the Filipino flag. The orange gemstone that gave him his powers is embedded in this chest and cannot be removed.
