Background

Being the favoured son of a crime boss has its perks, and Zenon Krzesinski used his father's influence and reputation to set himself up as well-trained and even better equipped vigilante. His father discovered Zenon's interest in gadgetry early but always assumed his son would use his weaponry and skills to assist with the 'family business'.

After graduating from a German university, Zenon discovered that his father's criminal empire actually extended into the murky depths of people smuggling and prostitution. The discovery triggered repressed memories of his early years when he had witnessed his father abusing his mother. Although traumatic, Zenon pursued any remaining evidence about his mother who had disappeared when he was ten years old. He discovered that she had been murdered by his father after she had attempted to blackmail him.

Zenon found that his long held anger towards his father now had a focus. His resentment towards his father's illicit activities had been percolating for years and had indeed fuelled his inventions and tinkering with mechanical and electrical devices.

His father was initially amused with Zenon's attacks against his businesses and warehouses, but soon the attacks could not be ignored. Sometime during the next twelve months Zenon Krzesinski became Longshot and his father cast him out of his inheritance. Longshot didn't even blink at the disinheritance and continued to systematically sabotage his father and the other organised crime bosses of Poland and Eastern Europe.

Longshot has been operating in Eastern Europe for nearly five years, and has teamed up with another Polish vigilante, Runecaster. Their alliance has proved to be especially effective against organised crime and has even raised the interest of the Russian terrorists, Oktober. Longshot has also assisted in the rehabilitation of many sex workers and smuggled people, most of whom have been abused by his father's businesses. One of these people turned out to be an uberhuman with psychic powers, later to be known as Brain Drain.

Longshot is known across Europe as a hardlined vigilante. His tactics are ruthless and he has been responsible for many deaths, not all of them criminals. He, Runecaster and Brain Drain have earned the wrath of Europe's ragtag team of heroes, The Brotherhood. Although they have worked together at least once, The Brotherhood and Longshot are constantly at each other's throats.

 

Personality

Zenon Krzesinski feels guilty about his father's activities: from the death of his mother to the many, many deaths of people who have been smuggled from Eastern Europe in the hope of a better life. He has worked hard to make himself the man he has become: from the high tech gadgetry to his athletic body and intense, one-tracked mindset. Zenon is a classic example of a driven man, and he takes no criticism from anyone although he is very judgemental of everyone around him.

He is softer when dealing with Brain Drain who he sees as a little brother. The fact that his father was responsible for the boy's brain damage has made Zenon into an overprotective 'older brother'.

 

Quote

"There's no escape for you, no matter how you grovel or beg for your life."

 

Powers

Longshot is an excellent marksman, able to kill with a variety of weaponry - much of which was designed or adapted by himself He is a highly trained athlete and has developed many skills to make him a capable killer and saboteur.

His gadgetry is varied, depending on the assignment, and usually includes a powerful compound bow, offensive and defensive pellets, and rocket-powered missiles. His helmet provides him with enhanced sensors including a targeting computer which allows him to increase his efficiency over great ranges.

 

Appearance

Longshot is known to the authorities and criminal underworld of Poland and many other Eastern European countries. His dark red armour and glistening black gauntlets are his trademarks. His armour is skin-tight and allows him to move like an Olympic gymnast, but it also contains many pockets and pouches where he keeps his various gadgets.
