Background

Lucas’s assignment with the ASIS (Australian Secret Intelligence Service) was to infiltrate Evol Khans’ organization in Singapore. Since Lucas had a musical background he wend undercover as a musician in one of Evol Khan’s nightclubs.

Things were going quite well and Lucas was funneling a lot of intelligence back to Australia. Lucas didn’t think he’d be betrayed by his own people. Such is hubris.

Lucas was starting his last set at the ‘Singapore Surprise’ nightclub. He had jumped to the stage, grabbed a drink that a handy waitress offered him, and began to sing.

Lucas was barely into the first chorus when the lights were starting to look too bright, and the room began to spin. In mere moments Lucas was on the floor his eyes completely unfocused. Men dressed as paramedics appeared as if they were standing by. It was an unresponsive Lucas that was carted off to a waiting ambulance right outside of the ‘Singapore Surprise’ nightclub. With sirens blaring the ambulance roared away. As the ambulance sped away, a lone figure came out of the nightclub. Neon light played across his bald scalp, as Evol Khan smiled with satisfaction.

Later Lucas awoken to the sight of too bright lights directed into his eyes, and his head swimming. A head with thick coke bottle glasses leaned over the table blocking the light.

“Ah, I see that you are coming out of the drugs,” said the man, “Now your throat may be a little sore after the operation, so refrain from talking. What operation you may ask? Well, my employer has instructed me to install the Hyper-Sonic Amplifier in you. One of my own inventions if I may say so. Impressive yes?”

“I do this for a reason. My employer wants you to kill Atomic Girl. Yes, I can see that you’ve heard of her. Disgraceful she is. To turn her back on Japan like that. Soon I shall return to Japan and have my revenge on those who killed my father. However, first Atomic Girl.”

“What you say, you won’t kill Atomic Girl. Do you not think that I have thought that you might be reluctant. Well, look at this.”

The man held up a small device that looked like a TV remote, except it only had one button, a large red button.

“I’ve also installed an explosive device in the Hyper-Sonic Amplifier that I can use to blow your head from your shoulders if you displease me. Don’t think that you can escape me, because my device has a two hundred meter range.”

Later at the Republic Plaza Building.

Sweat poured down Lucas’s back as he pounded up the stairs. Not far on his heels came Atomic Girl. His side ached where she had nailed him with a nuclear energy blast. Lucas didn’t think he could stand another hit like that. Fortunately for Lucas, Atomic Girl had proved to be susceptible to his Wail, and her movement had become somewhat sluggish. Lucas had even tagged the Japanese powerhouse with a sonic blast that even made Atomic Girl wince in pain. However, things weren’t improving much. Lucas had to duck as Atomic Girl punched at him, but his earlier Wail had her all wobbly and she missed him by centimeters. The stairwell wasn’t as lucked as concrete and glass exploded from the impact of her fist. She growled something in Japanese, but Lucas didn’t understand it. Lucas didn’t look back and kept running up the stairs. A sign flashed by Lucas as he ran, sixty. Only six more floors to go. Would he make it; there was a really angry Atomic Girl behind him.

A few more floors, and a few more wild nuclear blasts later, none of which hit Lucas, Lucas made it to the final door to the roof of the Republic Plaza building. A metal door stood in the way, but Lucas didn’t pause letting off a screech that shattered the door like confetti. As Lucas rolled onto the roof, a nuclear blast followed him an instant later. He had made it. Winds off the Singapore River swept in gales around Lucas and he came to his feet.

Out of the stairwell came and extremely angry Atomic Girl. Up into the night sky of Singapore the super-heroine flew. Nuclear energy flashed in her eyes.

“This ends now,” she bellowed.

“Crikey! Not so loud luv,” said Lucas, as he fished out a Fosters he had been saving and quickly drained his brew.

“Before ya go and spit the dummy let me tell ya a little story. You and I were both set up. Crikey I canna believe I shot up sixty six apples and pears. I am tuckered out.”

“Set up?” asked Atomic Girl as she came down to the roof. Her ears were finally not ringing as much as they were earlier.

“Struth luv,” said Lucas. “I was captured by this scientist dude and he put this dang thingamajig in me gob, and told me ta off ya luv. The blighter also put a bomb in me as well. Told me if I didn’t do as he said he’d send me head to the other side of the black stump. Not a pretty picture I tell ya. However, the egghead made a little mistake. I told me how far his little gizmo would work to blow me head off. Naturally it got me thinking about this place. Only had to figure out how to keep ya from doing the deed for him.”

“So who is this ‘egghead’?” asked Atomic Girl skeptically.

“Dunno,” said Lucas, “didn’t bother to say g’day mate to me, but he were a Japanese fella I reckon.”

“Japanese,” said Atomic Girl, “Eizo...”

Atomic Girl was just about to fly away, when Lucas called to back to Earth.

“I don’t mean to stop ya luv,” said Lucas, “but could ya help a mate out?”

Atomic Girl took a long close look at the explosive device.

“I don’t know much about explosives, but I think I can give it a try.”

Focusing her nuclear energy into a tight beam, Atomic Girl shorted out the explosive device in Lucus’s Hyper-Sonic Amplifier.

“Thanks luv,” said to Atomic Girl as she flew away.

Now what to do. Obviously he cover had been blown here in Singapore. It would be nice to get back to Australia, and maybe find out who had set him up. Also maybe Lucas would have a little fun with his new powers. New South Wailer, ya that sounded like a good moniker for him. Now all he had to do was to get down those sixty six floors again. His legs ached.

Personality

Lucas stands out in a crowd. He’s a real Australian in words and deeds. Lucas always seems to have a beer handy, and every woman he meets is a Sheila. However this at times puts others off. To Australians he represents a stereotype; one they don’t always enjoy, and to foreigners he comes off as ignorant. No ones comments have had much impact on Lucas’s world view.

Life for Lucas is to be enjoyed, and he enjoys it too its fullest. There is no beer that Lucas wouldn’t drink, and no party he wouldn’t want to attend. His willingness to party was one of the reason the ASIS picked him for his last assignment. Now however, the ASIS see that Lucas is a troublemaker, trying to bring light to an organization that thrives on shadows.

Another thing that people underestimate about Lucas is that he does actually think. Lucas always has a plan at the back of his mind. Often times when people count the New South Wailer out they find themselves surprised when he comes up with the right move for the right time.

Powers

Lucas is armed with a cybernetic device known as the Hyper-Sonic Amplifier that is attached to his vocal chords. The device is activated when Lucas uses his voice. His usual form of using the device is through singing, or in shrieking or screaming. Lucas can use the Hyper-Sonic Amplifier to shatter rigid objects, create booming sounds that deafen his foes, or disrupt a foes inner ear making it difficult for them to concentrate.

A side effect of the Hyper-Sonic Amplifier is that sonic based attacks against Lucas are practically nullified. This also includes aural based flash attacks.

Lucas is a natural trained fighter, who’s really good in a brawl. When expecting action, Lucas wears a lightweight suit of body armor that looks similar to leather.

Appearance

Lucas is a good looking man with short red hair and brown eyes. He’s very athletic, usually going without a shirt. Lucas likes to show of his muscles and his tattoo that he got while in Singapore. As the New South Wailer, Lucas doesn’t have a costume as such preferring to go topless, along with tight black leather pants and cowboy boots.
