Background

Hurricane got his name during his first week on the job as a coast guard, fresh out of the academy.  He and his partner were trapped in what was supposed to be an old fisherman's boat during a hurricane.  They had planned to be in and out within minutes, but they stumbled onto a smuggling racket and were held prisoner by the bandits just as the storm approached.  The bandits planned to kill the coast guard and escape on the patrol boat, and they would have succeeded if Ric Bolivar hadn't pulled himself loose of the rope which bound him, and stumbled to the engine house where he rigged the engines to start again.  He called for help and then returned to his partner and weathered part of the storm before being rescued by more advanced boats.  His bravery earned him respect on the job as well as the moniker which has stayed with him ever since.  He transferred to the police department a year later when his father fell ill.

Ric Bolivar became a second generation policeman, brought up in a family dominated by a father who was battling all his adult life against corruption and politics amongst the Dominican Republic's security forces. In recent times there had been more stability in the political realm of the republic, but Ric's father has never really dealt with the constant threats and insecurity. A broken man, Ric's father has spent the last few years in an institution outside the capital. Ric visits him weekly, along with his mother and three sisters, but his father is deteriorating.

Ric is currently caught between his father's legacy to become a solid and moral officer of the law, and his desire to fully explore his burgeoning uberhuman ability to fly. He has never attempted to hide the fact that he is an uber and the police force has accepted him as a regular officer who happens to be able to fly. However, Ric also has dreams of becoming a hero, not just a policeman. He sometimes wonders what it would be like to leave the Dominican Republic and live in America.

But his father keeps bringing him back. There is tradition and it weighs heavily on him.

Personality
Ric Bolivar is a good cop, having been brought up in a policeman's home. Ever since he could read, he has been reading books on police culture and criminal law. He is well respected in the force, and people either love him for his ability to fly, or else they pretend to not know about it. Overall Ric has no problems with his uberhuman abilities.

He loves his family, especially his father who has developed severe depression since retiring from the police force. Ric feels that his own life is being put on hold while his father slowly exits this life. The doctors have discovered cancer in Ric's father's lungs and they believe he only has a year to live. Ric sees this as a blessing, although he would never admit this to himself or others.
Quote
"The law doesn't operate on a two-dimensional plane - it can come down from above too, just wait and see."
Powers

Ric has the ability to fly in excess of 160kmph, but is otherwise a regular, athletic male in his twenties. He has developed a lot of aerial maneuvers which make him very difficult to track and hit while he is in the air. Hurricane is his nickname on the Force and he doesn't have a distinctive costume or separate identity.

Appearance

While on the job, Ric wears a police uniform, over which he usually wears a lightly armoured vest. Ric also wears flight goggles when he remembers. Out of uniform, he appears as a relaxed and friendly man with dark olive skin and wavy brown hair. He is tall, but not particularly muscle-bound.
