PB: Aidan Turner Team: Bravo Role: Surveillance #2 Codename:Batthough I was also considering Ears because then Bravo’s surveillance would be Eyes and Ears and I can’t be the only one who laughed? Okay, I'm convinced, his code name is Ears!
Powers: ENHANCED HEARING (primary) Sorry, was that phone call supposed to be private? Charlie heard every word from both you and the person on the other line… from two blocks and six floors away. His hearing works best when he can use it within a half-mile (or closer) radius to his target. Buildings, being on separate floors, crowds, and other environmental noise make it challenging, but so long as he’s heard a voice clearly at least once, he can pick it out. It’s nearly impossible to sneak up on him — he can hear the softest footsteps, the quietest breaths, and if he really focuses he can sometimes even hear heartbeats. SOUND MIMICRY (secondary) To a limited extent, he is able to replicate sounds that he’s previously heard. Some sounds, like the ringing of a telephone or a police siren, are easier to replicate and thus are part of his permanent mimicry repertoire, whereas voices are much more difficult. To properly replicate a voice, he must have heard it in the last 12 hours for peak effectiveness, though he’s made it work with samples as old as 48 hours. INAUDIBILITY (secondary) This is a power that Charlie can only use on other supers, and when he’s using it he can’t use either of his other abilities due to the staggering amount of focus and energy this one takes. When he does use this power, he can render either one other super entirely inaudible or up to three others 50% more silent than they would normally be. Limited to one hour of continuous use when cloaking one person, or 15-20 minutes when cloaking three people.
Brief History: So Charlie’s been part of the program for five years or thereabouts, after his (ex-)fiancee turned him in. Bit of a charmer when he feels like it, but more often than not he’s equal parts grumpy, reserved, and generally quiet. And definitely not the most gullible ever when it comes to some puppy-dog eyes, shh. On days when his hearing is too sensitive post-mission or he just doesn’t feel like dealing with it, he can be found wearing modified noise-cancelling headphones to lower his auditory perception to something closer to “normal.”
