Background

Budokaido is the official martial art of Nepal, and was developed as a street fighting style by Maha Guru Sagar Shrestha. It is fundamentally similar to karate, but has an emphasis on dodging or blocking attacks and simultaneously getting beside or behind an opponent to knock them off balance or grapple them. It is a practical full contact martial art, and Mahesh Paudel is one of the art's foremost practitioners. He is a Ghurkha, and like many Gurkhas has been training the Communist rebels for over a decade, but recently he's taken a more hands on approach.

A year ago he took part in an ambush against a military prison that was known to be torturing local farmers who were suspected of having Communist sympathies. What the group found within the prison was a charnel house, which was not to be unexpected. The government did have a history of brutality, but these people were being used as test subjects in some sort of insane experiment. Mahesh is positive that the Chinese, Indian, or American governments were responsible. Before the rebels could gather any information the facility exploded. Clearly it's creators were covering their tracks, but they never counted on the chemicals, toxic smoke, and stress activating Mahesh's ubergene.

If the intention of the Nepalese government (or whoever it was behind the experiments) was to create their own pet uber they both succeeded and failed. Because Mahesh is most certainly an uber, but he's only loyal to the guerillas. Since the accident he's been the nominal co leader, alongside the Voice, of the Uber Squad of the People's Army of Nepal. Foreign reporters have abbreviated this to the People's Uber Squad, and the name has stuck.

Mahesh has married a Nepalese woman, and has renounced his Indian citizenship. He'd like to start a family with his wife, but the accident that provided him with his powers has also rendered him sterile. He's not a Communist, and might be willing to abandon the guerillas if provided enough money or stable employment that didn't result in him betraying the Indian Gurkha regiments.

 

Personality

Mahesh is a professional soldier more than anything, and though he's working as a mercenary for the Communists he likes them on a personal level. He's quite scrupulous about his behavior. He never betrays an employer either past or present, he will not kill or commit violence against allies, and he never leaves an ally behind. If at all possible Mahesh will finish a mission, but if an employer betrays he trust he's also obligated to take revenge against them.

Mahesh's only real motivation is to get revenge on the people who were responsible for giving him his powers, and setting himself and his wife up with a comfortable life. He will not join with the monarchists to do this, but might abandon them for work far enough away from Nepal that he'd not affect the outcome of their struggle.

"Oh bloody hell!" - A MI5 officer on seeing video of Mahesh in action.

 

Powers

Even before the accident that gave him his powers Mahesh was a professional soldier, and capable of fighting off any ten lesser men all on his own. Now he has an extremely powerful healing factor, and can regenerate wounds as quickly as they happen. Even his brain regenerates from traumatic damage, though exactly how is anyone's guess. He's immune to poisons and diseases, and has walked through clouds of tear gas and toxic smoke with no ill effect. He's an expert melee fighter and always carries a monomolecular kukhri that Metal Girl has made for him. He's capable of using any firearm, but only goes into combat with a pistol.

Mahesh is not stupid or overconfident. He knows that were he ever to be incapacitated among the enemy he could be captured or brutalized enough that he could be killed. He prefers to fight from ambush, and if he were ever to have other uberhumans as adversaries would only fight on his terms. In any combat situation the other three members of the People's Uber Squad will follow his orders.

To increase Mahesh's power give him a VPP for an arsenal of guns and explosives, and give him combat levels with guns. To decrease his power reduce his defenses and eliminate his DC bonus to martial arts. Mahesh is hunting the people who were behind the lab that gave him his powers to the exclusion of anything else.

 

Appearance

Mahesh looks like any other Guerilla, because the People's Committee of the Nepalese Communist Revolution decided that superhero uniforms were oppressive, and made it look like Uberhumans were better than other people. Within Nepal he's pretty well known, so his most distinctive feature is that people are nervous or respectful of him whenever he's around. Typically he wears tough functional combat fatigues.
