Background

Ronald Duell and Melissa Drake were on the Colonial Governor's staff in Hong Kong when they met and fell in love. It was an exciting time in a glamorous place, with the handover of one of England's few remaining Crown Colonies still over 20 years away. Their son Jason caught the fever growing up there. He inherited his parents' looks and aptitude for getting along, using them to see both the high life in the diplomatic circles, and the low life on the streets of the island and the surrounding mainland areas. While his father's athleticism served him well in these places, too, he also showed a knack for getting into, and out of, trouble on his own. Things just tended to work out for him, and often, for those around him. He never gave it much thought, though, until one day when he was nine, and his family was visiting Kowloon.

Jason got separated from his parents, and came upon some punks mugging an old woman. He proceeded to wade in among them, heedless of the fact that some of them had knives. Though his natural agility and raw courage (or foolhardiness) gave him an initial edge, Jason's lack of skill soon became apparent. Just as he was about to receive a nasty cut, however, an old man came up and delivered a flurry of blows, quietly and effectively, that sent the punks running. Some of them made threats in Chinese about the Tongs as they went. The old gentleman looked at Jason for a moment, then left as mysteriously as he had come. It would be another year before Jason would see the man again. He showed up on the island when the boy was out and about, as was his wont when he wasn't in school or learning the ins and outs of regional affairs, the kind that they don't teach in classrooms.

Jason recognized him, even though he was dressed differently. Whereas before he had worn typical Communist worker's clothes, he was now the picture of the prosperous island businessman, even to the briefcase portable phone at his side. This time, the man spoke, introducing himself as Weng Chow. He went on to say Jason was indeed quick, and very lucky, but he lacked the knowledge of how best to use his gifts. With no further prompting, Jason added it up, and asked if Weng would help him learn. "I want to know what you know," was how he put it. Within a couple of years, Weng had little concern for Jason dealing with Tong thugs himself, though he recommended that if Jason were to do so, he should at least cover his face, so his parents would not be embarrassed.

By the time he was 18, Jason was off to a running start. He was dividing his time between university in his parents' home country, England; and vacations in Hong Kong (which would always be home to him, even after the handover) and the Cote d'Azur. He kept in shape, however, and over the next few years, there were rumors up and down the Riviera of a masked man interfering with the Corsicans. Word was that he was fast. Some even said he could run up walls, though the local police paid little heed.

The reports found their way to the desk of Agent 1, at MI5 Headquarters. It did not take him long to decide that there might be more to the accounts than the police on the Riviera were prepared to credit, and he put out some feelers. A few months later, he offered Jason Duell the opportunity to train for a chance to do something even more important with his abilities. It took some time after that for a suitable opening to present itself, but Agent 1 finally decided Jason was ready for a costume to go with his mask, and membership in Majestic, under the alias "Fortune."

Personality

Jason Duell grew up privileged, but doesn't make an issue out of it. Growing up in diplomatic circles instilled a devotion to Queen and Country, while seeing bullies in the streets of Hong Kong, Marseilles and Milan, to say nothing of stuffed shirts in important offices, gave him the determination to help those who could not help themselves. He bristles at the thought of being treated as a "colonial" by English people who have never set foot outside their own country. Seeing what the People's Republic has done to Hong Kong since the handover makes him, if anything, even more determined to fight oppression. Parentage and culture alike have ensured that he takes his word very seriously indeed.

Quote

"Many people say they'd rather be lucky than good. I've seen no reason to choose."

Powers

Jason is an Uber with superhuman agility, reaction, and stamina. He also has a highly acute sixth sense for trouble. He has capitalized on these gifts with extensive training in Kung Fu, and infiltration skills taught to him first by Weng Chow, and later refined by MI5. All his life, he has also been amazingly lucky. Neither he nor anyone else can explain it, but things have a marked tendency to go his way. It was this very attribute that suggested this particular alias to Agent 1. Another attribute that has yet to be satisfactorily explained is his ability to walk on walls, though current MI5 speculation is that this, too, is part of his overall ubergene. Finally, his costume is both bulletproof and fire-resistant, and the eyepieces enable him to see in the dark, all courtesy of MI5's couturiers.

Appearance

Tall, dark, and handsome. Think Roger Moore as Simon Templar. Jason can willingly get his hands dirty, and still be debonair about it. He dresses well, avoiding the whims of fashion in favor of genuine style. As Fortune, he wears a dark blue bodysuit with silver piping at the wrists, calves, and eyespots, with a silver eight-pointed star on the left breast.
