Background

Southern Cross International (SCI) designed a powered armour suit employing an electromagnetic field generator, an accomplishment which enabled them to create a public image for their research. Southern Cross began his career primarily as a spokesman and field agent for Southern Cross International, but with the establishment of the Southern Knights, he found a home amongst the other ubers.

Emanuel Santos was a helicopter pilot in the Brazilian army, when he was approached by SCI to become the third Southern Cross. The first Southern Cross was killed in the destruction of Rio de Janeiro, and the second had been forced to retire after a drug scandal. Santos accepted the assignment and resigned from the army and moved to Melbourne.

Although the newest member of the Southern Knights, Southern Cross exudes confidence and a belief that he is leadership material. The other team members accept him as an egotistical jock, although they would never consider him anything more than a 'blow in'.

Personality

Santos is supremely confident and impressed with his charm and good looks. He considers himself on the fast-track to further greatness and enjoys his time in the lime light. Underneath, he sometimes wonders whether he could handle the life of the superhero, especially given his reliance on the power suit. Basically he is still a military man, comfortable in the chain of command, and in control of a powerful weapon.

Quote

“Get behind me, and watch out for ricochets. This could get messy.”

Powers

The Southern Cross Power Suit utilises an electromagnetic field generator, enabling the wearer to fly and project a powerful force field. It also augments the wearer's strength and speed, provides a wide array of communication and sensor devices, and self contained breathing systems. SCI has added a gauntlet-mounted laser.

Appearance

The Southern Cross Power Suit is a blue suit with the southern cross emblazoned on the chest and boots. He wears a yellow helmet, wrist bands and belt. The helmet allows his lower face to be exposed, but when needed, a clear screen extends to provide complete sealed systems.
