Background

Ash Kapoor was always going to be famous. He left Chennai at sixteen to join the Bollywood studios in Mumbai, but when he arrived he found it was more difficult to get the attention he needed for his big break. He caught the eyes of other performers but never the directors and producers. After a year of small parts in big productions Ash was thrust into the starring role as a platoon of high-tech Pakistani Freedom Fighters launched an attack on Mumbai and the headquarters of India's national superhero team, The Assembly. The studio where he was working as a dancer suddenly caught fire and threatened to collapse. The music was roaring and the costumes seemed to sparkle in the mix of fire and spotlights, and Ash found himself stepping into his biggest role.

He found that he could fly, and salvaged the roof of the studio. He found that he was impervious to the flames, and beat them out with his bare hands. And he found that he could stop the carnage wrought by the Freedom Fighters.

The people of Mumbai worshipped him and the media pasted his face on every television and newspaper in the country. He was quickly secured by The Assembly and before he had had a chance to enjoy his new found celebrity status at home, Dharma (as he was called) was sent to Karachi as part of a 'liberation force' which effectively lay siege to Pakistan.

Dharma knew that Pakistan was the enemy but questioned whether the destruction of their defence forces and the occupation of their government was really in the best interests of India. After months of tense political and military manoeuvres, Pakistan became a protectorate of India and lost its independence. With their major enemy neutralised India enjoyed a kind of renaissance and Dharma was swept along with it.

Personality

Ash is a pacifist caught up in a dangerous world and possessing one of his country's greatest weapons: himself. After being drafted into The Assembly during the occupation of Pakistan, Ash has come to question his country's methods, but as yet is unable to voice his concerns. He is young and relatively inexperienced, although he has the potential to lead The Assembly in the future.

Dharma is a major celebrity in India and Ash is learning to adjust to this newfound popularity. As an actor in Bollywood, Ash was aware of the mass hysteria which can take a hold of crowds, but when he appears as Dharma it is as if the gods are walking again. The crowds are incredible and their adoration is intoxicating for Ash.

Quote

I just hope that all these pictures and autographs can really help people, you know?"

Powers

Dharma is one of the most powerful ubers in Asia, able to easily lift over 400 tons and survive attacks from enemy armies. His invulnerability is reinforced with an incredible healing ability which repairs most damage as it is delivered. Dharma is also able to fly at high speed and has the capability to survive in space, which he has done on several occasions. His invulnerability and healing ability also repair his body in such a way that he is practically immortal and will never age a day.

Appearance

Ash is incredibly beautiful, made even more so by his frequent media appearances and the hero worship of the Indian population. He has olive skin, wavy black hair and deep, caring brown eyes. His body is incredibly powerful although it maintains a lithe form. As Dharma, he wears a light green bodysuit with silver braces on his arms and legs, black boots and a pale yellow cape which is clasped at his neck.
