Hotwire
Name: Ezekiel Urban
Codename: Hotwire
Age: 22
Race: Human (mutant)
Gender: Male
Physical Description in/out of costume:

Group Affiliation: Legacy

Contacts: Legacy, Machinesmith

Out of costume - Zeke, as he prefers to be called, stands at 6' with steel grey eyes and brown hair that's worn long and combed back.  Usually he keeps it around shoulder length.  He dresses rather simply, black military issue boots with a trench coat, gloves, a t-shirt and a pair of black cargo pants.

In Costume - The military issue boots, trench coat and gloves remain though he wears a military surplus blackshirt and pants.  A black bandana is worn over his mouth and nose, with a thin white pair of shades covering his eyes.

Powers: Electronics and mechanical objects are his play things.  He is capable of controlling, directing and operating these by touch.  Depending on the size and/or complexity of the object his body can be absorbed into it at or more usually against his will.

Skills: A bit rough around the edges he can handle himself in a fist fight, but that's about it.  Otherwise he's a rather expert mechanic and with his photographic memory when it comes to objects he interacts with, given the right materials he can duplicate with ease and in most cases improve on their original design.  The drawback to this is he usually makes it in such a way that only he is capable of operating it.

Occupation: Drifter, Vigilante, Mechanic for Major Motorcycles

Highest level of education: GED

Background: Zeke was born to an abusive alcoholic father, who was even more abusive when he was sober.  This was usually due to the fact that the money that was meant for his booze was stolen by his wife, a meth addict.  Due to this, Zeke pretty much raised himself.  He went through some rough times but managed to get his way through school.  Still he was the outcassed, a child of a pair of trailer trash failures and it was just a matter of time that he went in his parents footsteps.  At 15 he stole the car of the star quarterback and crashed it into a tree on purpose.  By some odd chance, thanks to his powers, he made it out of the accident without a scratch and managed to elude police for some time.  Not wanting it to be known he was a mutant, he allowed himself to be caught, figuring he'd just get a slap on the wrist.

Three years later, he was released from Juvenile Hall and placed into a garage as he showed a large apptitude for mechanics during his GED classes.  He was absorbed into a car on accident and revved the engine far more than it had any right to go, blowing out most of the vehicles engines.  His boss witnessed him unabsorbing from the vehicle and drove him out, realizing he was a mutant.  He has managed to work his way across the country; stealing food, cash, clothes and shelter as he can.

After arriving in Weston he was sucked into the group of heroes that went on to call themselves 'The Legacy of Weston City', much to his dismay.  He has a good gig with them and a good job on the side, so he figured he'd stick around.
