Cole the Power Hedgehog was the head of Project Bane, a project by the Power Hedgehog Inquisitors to recreate one of the most lethal substances known - the metallic species-bane, starting with dragonsbane. However, he was abducted, and vanished, only to reappear on the surface on board an aircraft that was later bombed.

Physical Appearance

Cole, while he was at work for the Inquisitors, was a thin figure who walked with confidence, with long, well-cared for burgundy fur and sharp, intelligent teal eyes. However, when he was identified on the surface, he was malnourished, his fur patchy and uncared for, and his eyes fearful, as they remained until his death a very short time later.


During his life, Cole preferred to wear black, with a shirt and slacks of that color, both marked with threads of metal, plus metal gloves and greaves, made up his day-to-day attire. While working as the director, he wore a black lab-coat. However, when he was sighted, he was wearing the rags of his coat, shirt and pants, with no gloves or shoes at all.


Early Life & Schooling

Cole was born as the child of chemists, and grew up surrounded by science. At that point, he began to learn, but not the sciences of the surface. He learned the sciences of the Demons, Celestials and even the Technomages of old, and his parents enjoyed teaching him. As he reached high school and even university, nothing scientific posed a challenge to him. He followed his parents, graduating a chemist specializing in the family's greatest art - metals. This was aided by his genetic ability, which granted him the ability to both manipulate and transform his body into metal, as long as he was in direct physical contact with the metal in question.

Project Bane

As a graduate, Cole's projects had caught the eyes of the weapon-smiths, who approached him to learn how to forge weapons in the 'old ways', how to make weapons of the same caliber of the ancient Demon and Celestial tools. Like his parents before him, Cole granted some lessons, but not many, and not all of what he knew. However, this attracted attention from a more powerful source - the Power Hedgehog Inquisitors. The organization hired the university graduate, hoping that his knowledge of the old tools would help them recreate the ancient metallic weapon - Bane. At twenty-four, the money they offered was more than any other science position he could get, so Cole jumped at the chance. Instantly, he was head of the project, with over one hundred scientists under him, developing the most well-known kind of bane - Dragonsbane. After two years, he had successes, and the first dragonsbane weapons were added to the Power Hedgehogs armories, instantly sent for use against the Dra Gen Ra.

However, while at an old cantina, playing a game of poker with one of his colleagues, Laura he met her friend,Sean, an equally skilled chemist with similar interests, plus a military background. That night, while Cole passed through a dark alley on his way home from the cantina, he was abducted by two shadowy Power Hedgehogs, and vanished without a trace. To fill his place, Sean was given his role, and Cole was believed dead to all.

Rediscovery and Death

After eight years, Project Bane had continued smoothly, but some of the bane had vanished. With a different kind of bane for each species, it was worrying that some had disappeared, especially with its appearance in the hands of G.U.N.-aligned scientists. The head of the Inquisitors, Scott the Power Hedgehog, ordered an inquiry, and who did he find but Cole, on board an aircraft bound for Central City. Over the years that had passed, he had become malnourished and almost skeletal, his clothes in tatters and nothing metallic touching him, his fur patchy. Instantly, Scott requested a Reaper team be dispatched to deal with the 'renegade', but mid-way through the flight, it detonated - destroyed by the two Power Hedgehogs who had abducted him - corrupt Reapers.


Cole had the genetic ability Metal. This granted him the instinctive control of metal, plus the ability to convert his body to metal or form extra body parts out of metal, as long as he was in direct physical contact with the metallic substance. This was his main skill, used for both offense and defense. Like all Power Hedgehogs, he possessed a wide array of other powers - super strength, super speed, flight, heightened durability, telepathy, heightened reflexes, omnikinesis and manipulation of Chaos energy, but he preferred not to use such powers, knowing quite correctly that these weren't as powerful as his genetic ability.

He also possessed the second genetic ability, Intimidate. This he would often use in concert with converting his skin to metal, giving his opponents the sensation that they wouldn't win. However, in his one known battle, this failed to work as he planned, instead emboldening his attackers and leading to his abduction.

Outside of combat, Cole had accesses to his family's skill - an intricate knowledge of chemistry and metallic compounds. This is what allowed him to lead the project to recreate the banes. It also allowed him the understanding of how to break an opponent's weapon, as long as it was metallic in nature.

Unfortunately, Cole suffered from certain drawbacks. His genetic ability created serious weaknesses towards Fire and Electricity, especially the advanced element of Magnetism, which could tear him to shreds. His other skills were also somewhat lacking as well, leaving most experienced fighters capable of besting him.

Dedicated to science, Cole has only one true passion - chemistry, although he was known to dabble in blacksmithy on the side. As a master metal manipulator, he is known to have a love for his metals, but not much else is known.
