— Braeden the Cat
A lean cat who stands a fair bit over three feet tall, Braeden has a short muzzle with a triangular nose, quite large, triangular ears that mostly stand upright (the right one has a chunk missing from it), and a fairly long, slender tail.
His short, somewhat curly fur is mostly crystal in color, with a white muzzle, inner ears, chest, and stomach, as well as crystal blue facial markings and stripes on his body, arms, legs, and tail. He has no hair on his head, instead having a curly tuft of fur, and his eyes are dark electric blue in color.
Braeden's outfit consists of a golden poppy long sleeve top with white cuffs, white stripes down the arms, and a zipper down the front, as well as white gloves, black pants, and golden poppy boots with white cuffs.
Superior - Guts
With the Cybernetic enhancements to his upper body, Braeden now has surprising physical strength for his size and stature, being able to lift 400 lbs. over his head and throw punches strong enough to shatter stone. He wields a pair of brass knuckles made of Pyrosteel as his primary weapon of choice; the metal they're made of gives a mild Fire-aligned punch (literally) to attacks made using these weapons.
Being a cat, he has a keen sense of both hearing and sight, and he is also quite fast and nimble. His teeth are also very sharp with strong jaws, and he can deliver a nasty bite; one of his favorite attacks is to latch onto the foe with his teeth and strike repeatedly with his Pyrosteel knuckles. He can also smash/scrape his Pyrosteel knuckles together to generate sparks of flame.
He does carry a laser rifle with him for extra protection, but he rarely bothers to use it, instead preferring to fight up close.
Genetic Ability: Guts
This genetic ability activates whenever Braeden is burned, poisoned or paralyzed. When activated, it boosts Braeden's physical strength by about 50%. Guts does not counter the loss in speed and agility from being paralyzed, nor does it counter the damage-over-time effect from being poisoned or burned; however, it does nullify the drop in physical strength from being burned.
Braeden has no specific resistances to any Elements or energy-types. He is quite fast, and can easily outpace slower foes and evade their attacks.
Braeden has no specific weaknesses to any Elements or energy-types. His defenses aren't anything special, therefore he mostly relies on his agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks.
Friends and Foes
- The Eggman Empire -
A rather violent cat who loves a good fight, Braeden can typically be found in the training room of the Crimson Citadel Egg Base. He tends to get antsy when he's not moving around/being active in general, and combat is his preferred method of letting off steam. He's rather cocky overall, although he does respect a strong opponent. Despite his cockiness, he doesn't like enemies he can beat easily, preferring a challenge above all else.
