Hyperion, The Titan of LightAppearance:
A mix of blue, soot black, ash white, and metallic tones. Of note is the five-fingered hands- with two sets of thumbs on either side of his hands- and what seems to be facial hair. Analysis indicates it's close in composition to volcanic glass.Size:
90 meters tallFirst Appearance:
After awakening beneath the Mediterranean, he fought and removed a titanic mutant crab menacing a coastal crab. He placed it near its native antarctic waters.Abilities:
(What powers of utter destruction can you cause?)
-Solar plasma: Hyperion can generate plasma that burns at a brightness and temperature equal to that of the sun. Usually used for melee hits, it can also be thrown or used for defensive shields. It rapidly cools when not in contact with his body.
-Super strength and endurance: Even for his tremendous size, Hyperion is far stronger than seems normal. He's able to deadlift most kaiju overhead.
-Craftsman: Able to work stone and metal into weapons and armor, though he requires massive supplies of either to make anything he can actually use.
-Martial Arts: In a turn that truly shocked TERRA's scientist during his first battle, The Titan does not fight like an animal. He fights using a grappling style, akin to the ancient Greek martial art of Pankration. He even seems to understand how to use weapons.
-Actually Sapient: Unlike most kaiju, it's believed that Hyperion has at least human-level intelligence. While he doesn't seem to understand or read modern languages, he can at least process that there is some meaning behind the symbols. This means he's capable of concepts entirely foreign to other kaiju, like "strategy," "learning," and "coordination."Weaknesses:
(Every monster has a weakness of some kind - no exceptions!)
-Darkness: Hyperion seems to have never evolved night vision. In darkness, he's completely blind and tends to panic. As long as the power holds out in a city, though, he's able to see.
-Obscene body heat: The Titan's body heat radiates outward, making him readily detectable by other kaiju. Walking over sand leaves glass footprints behind.
-Protector: Despite his tremendous size and power, The Titan seems genuinely invested in protecting humanity, regularly throwing himself in harm's way to protect humans. His policy on other sapient creatures is, as yet, unknown.Personality:
Terra's scientists can agree on very little about this creature. The general consensus is that he's of extraterrestrial origin, has at least human-level intelligence, and can create tools from stone or metal. It's not hard to see that he's confused by the modern world, but that doesn't seem to stop him from jumping in front of buildings to protect them from monsters. Despite this benevolence, he fights dirty, and gives off a cocky air.History:
Since he was discovered in 1966, there has been great debate among Terra's scientist just which mythological titans this ancient stone-and-steel clad humanoid inspired. Deep in slumber, Terra found ancient cave paintings on a stone seal depicted a giant striking down a terrifying monster. What experiments could be performed on a creature of this size were, and a third-string facility was left to monitor this sleeping giant. Within the cave, they found even more inscriptions. What little they can agree on is that he was found deep in a volcanic cavern system in the Mediterranean, and much of the writing, carvings, and offerings in this cavern suggest frequent interaction with the ancestors of the ancient Greeks.
Tests on his body over the years have revealed a steadily rising internal temperature and a steadily falling level of toxins. Offerings of medicinal plants and herbs found in the cavern suggest that Hyperion went into a deep slumber long ago in order to recover from some particularly nasty ailment or injury, and is only recently beginning to wake up and shake it off- as suggested by the scruffy beard he's grown in the intervening centuries.Other: Theme:
