So, trying out a new thing. While I have ref sheets and sketches of a handful of original characters here, they don’t go into a lot of backstory. So, these character profiles will go into further detail about them (and may be updated as their stories develop.) That said, let’s start us off with…

Weight: 125 lb.

However, the daughter of the family, currently their Director of Research and Development and majority shareholder in the Whitlock Aviation Company, saw the injustice these robber barons wreaked upon the common people. So when heads are turned, she dons an armor of her own design and takes to the skies as the peoples’ hero, Hermes!
The Modern Era: An undeclared major in a nondescript downtown university, Merced Whitlock had enough to worry about: exhaustive studies, keeping her social life alive, one day inheriting a conglomerate, dodging the diabolical creations of the city’s multiple resident mad scientists, gaining the power to grow to kaiju size and shrink to mouse size at will, and not accidentally sitting on her dormmate, who literally is a mouse. Will she make it? Will you be there to cheer her on?
