Brock Freakin' Samson FAE

I have been playing a lot more FATE and FAE lately mostly thanks to the fun people at Gateway a few weeks ago and a fellow named Sayler VanMerlin who is running his Sandals & Supers game using FAE here in Long Beach. It's basically superheroes in ancient Egypt.

Since I have TERRIBLE handwriting and wanted to have my character available to me anywhere through G-Docs, I decided to make a form fillable pdf of the FAE character sheet. I needed to test it out so I followed the example of my buddy +Wil Hutton who had some fun making Invader Zim and GIR characters for FAE. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to hammer out some of my favorite animated characters. So, I present to you Brock Samson from the Adult Swim show Venture Brothers.



Name: Brock Samson

Description: Blond mulleted, tall, muscular man usually seen with a cigarette in his mouth. He has an unfinished tattoo of Icarus from Led Zeppelin's Swan Song record label on his right bicep.

Aspects

High Concept
Swedish Murder Machine. This is the way The Monarch described Brock when his henchmen returned to him in Dia De Los Dangerous. A more apt description I cannot think of. Brock is an efficient killing machine that loves his job and keeps a storage locker of stuff he has looted off his many kills.

Trouble
Operation: Rusty's Blanket. The OSI mission that basically entails being Rusty's or Dr. Ventures personal bodyguard. In actuality it also consists of protecting a mysterious artifact known as the Orb that may or may not have apocalyptic properties. Operation Rusty's Blanket is abbreviated to be ORB. Needless to say, between making sure the Orb doesn't fall into the wrong hands and keeping Dr. Venture safe from his several enemies in the Guild of Calamitous Intent, it's a dangerous and full time job.

License to Kill. Brock carries an O.S.I. issued class "A" license to kill, number 09262-8765-001 (displayed in Mid-Life Chrysalis) and he is an organ donor. At one point it expired and during that time he had to endure insults like Goldilocks, Ape Drape, Captain Mullethead, Frankenmullet and Hokey Hair but did not retaliate until the license was renewed.

OSI's Top Agent. Brock is LEGENDARY among the ranks of the OSI as well as the Guild of Calamitous Intent. Men have been known to fight over who gets to pick up his cigarette butts. Brock is feared and respected in the world of Secret Intelligence.

Women name their vibrators after him. As described by Henchman 21 in the season 1-4 Recap, Brock is irresistible to the opposite sex. Hell, even men write him love letters. He is as much a sex machine as he is a killing machine.

Stunts

To prey on their fear, move like an animal, to feel the kill - Because Brock's skill with a knife borders on the supernatural, he gets a +2 when he uses Forceful to attack with a knife.

Even though he has a license to kill he refuses to use a gun,  instead relying on brute strength, endurance, and skill with a knife that borders on the supernatural.

They hit me with a TRUCK! - Brock always wins any contest vs. a henchman of any kind.

I know this Stunt sounds a little powerful, but its BROCK FRIGGIN' SAMSON. Brock Samson has single handedly ruined the day of more henchmen than any other man. Members of the Fluttering Horde and the army of Ăśnderland have tear soaked nightmares of the dreaded Brock Samson. Even when completely coated in henchman tranquilizer darts, flattened by the Monarch Mobile, buried and left for dead Brock still came back to crush his henchly enemies under the tires of his 1969 Dodge "Hemi" Charger.
