Herakles the Elk is a member of the Dark Bloom anarchist group on international watchlists due to his sheer physical might.
Herakles the Elk
|Political Alignment and Abilities|
|Appearances||None so far|
Taller than average with his black antlers helping to push that even further, Herakles is an ash-gray elk with muscles on his muscles. While that lightish gray fur helps blend him into urban settings fairly well, his gunmetal gray eyes are so dark many people would swear that they are black.
Herakles has a clothing style that is best described as punk. His black and dark purple hooded jacket has tattered sleeves, while his gunmetal gray cargo pants are torn in many places. Strangely, silver chains seem attached to the sides of his pants, held in place with safety pins and thick stitches.
Completing his look is a pair of black leather combat boots, black gloves with purple detailing, a black leather belt and welding goggles up on his forehead.
Herakles might not have any elemental talent or power, but he makes up for it with just sheer strength. He claims that he is as strong as or stronger than beings like Knuckles the Echidna, Mighty the Armadillo and Vector the Crocodile, and while he has no proof that he is as he claims, his strength is still nothing to scoff at. While never properly trained in combat, basic punches and kicks that he throws are capable of knocking holes in concrete walls and leaving large dents in steel plate. Similarly, while he doesn't emphasize these skills, Herakles has heightened speed and reflex timing, allowing him to make the most of that physical power against any target he can get close to.
One of the strangest aspects of Herakles is his possession of a unique weapon, the dagger known as Daor; or the Slave. Seemingly bonded to the young man, the Daor is only really drawn against other armed opponents, and seems to shift in form to suit the wielder's will in combat, typically into a shallowly curved sword in combat with more skilled fighters. Many beings with knowledge of these types of mythical weapons have indicated that this is only the tip of the iceberg of that weapon, and only Herakles' lack of interest in actually training with his dagger keeps its power restricted.
- Slave Gear: Herakles begins this close-combat combo with a quick left-handed punch, followed by a rapid slash with his dagger. Once in a rhythm, he alternates between slashes, punches and kicks in a blind flurry; aiming for maximum damage and minimum effort.
