Clockwork Mondays, Week 3

Here is our third installment of the “Clockwork Mondays”, as we continue to take the primary character(s) from the Capes & Clockwork “Superheroes in the Age of Steam” anthologies and posting them here with Victorious game statistics, for your reading pleasure. Feel free to use any or all of them in your home games, and if they sound interesting to you please visit the author pages for each post’s characters and let them know you enjoy their creations. Better yet, head over to Amazon, pick up a copy of Volumes 1 or 2 of the Capes & Clockwork books from Dark Oak Press and leave a review!

Keely is a visitor from an unknown world who fell into Victorian London during an invasion by ‘The Otherworlders’. She appears completely human with the exception of small pointed ears, much like an elf. She wears her blonde hair long and wavy. Her hero uniform, destroyed at the end of the Keely story, was a navy blue skirt, white blouse, red boots and belt, and a Union Jack flag fashioned into a cape.
Keely’s skin absorbs sunlight, fashioning it into power. This power allows her to have flight, super speed, and super strength. At full power and when needing to call on all her resources, her skin will glow and burn, which tends to burn off whatever she is wearing. To the frustrations of her handlers, she tends to wear as little as possible, tearing her clothing at times, in order to maximize the amount of light she can absorb.
Her drawbacks and weaknesses are a lack of knowledge and understanding of the human world and society. Since she fell to Earth, she is learning at an amazing pace, but has a long ways to go to fit in correctly. Also, her need for sunlight can be a weakness when that power source is taken away. Without sunlight, Keely still functions, but only at the strength levels of a normal human being.

“Seeing them in person for the first time, I realized that the boasts of their size and repulsiveness hadn’t been exaggerated. Humanoid in shape, they stood a dozen feet tall. Their heads lacked noses and ears like a human, but held four eyes. Their grayish skin glimmered in the way that a reptile’s body would in the sunlight.”

These foul creatures invaded the Earth without warning several years ago, and their conquest has gone apace. Not satisfied with smashing Earth’s armies and nations, the Otherworlders have built giant factories to transform the atmosphere of this world to a noxious gas that better mimics their own homeworld. This miasma chokes the clouds and blocks much of the sun’s rays from reaching the earth, causing famine and death to spread. Thanks to this gas and their superior technology, the Otherworlders have conquered every nation of the Earth…save the British Isles. Queen Victoria’s realm is their next target, and only the strange beauty Keely stands in their way!
