Floyd Lawton—Deadshot

With the release of Suicide Squad—another DCEU movie with mixed reception—I have even more characters to run through the Savaging gauntlet. I personally enjoyed the film, but maybe that's because I went in looking for things to analyze and my expectations were already kind of low.

Anyways, let's just get started with one of the best parts of the movie: Deadshot. Spoilers, of course.

Name: Floyd Lawton
Race: Human

Skills: Climbing d6, Fighting d10, Notice d6, Shooting d12+4, Stealth d8, Streetwise d8, Taunt d6.
Inventory: Body Armor (Armor +4, –4 AP vs ballistics), custom AR-15 (24/48/96, 2d8, AP 2, RoF 3, Auto, 30 shots), 3× AR-15 magazines, Glock 17 (12/24/48, 2d6, AP 1, RoF 1, Semi-Auto, 17 shots), 2× Glock 17 magazines, 2× Glock 18 (12/24/48, 2d6, AP 1, RoF 3, Auto, 30 shots), 4× Glock 18 magazines.

  • Super Skill (10): Fighting +2, Shooting +6, Stealth +1, Streetwise +1.
Deadshot is one of the world's best sharpshooters, able to consistently place fully-automatic fire directly between the eyes of his victims. His skill led him to begin work as an international assassin, able to consistently take incredible shots, including ricocheted shots at extreme ranges.

He's also a father. Although his daughter knows what he does, she appreciates and loves him, knowing that he does everything because he loves her. This drives him to do anything for his daughter, including risk his life, to make enough money to be there for her and provide for her. Unfortunately, his relationship with his daughter is what led to him being caught: when Batman tracked him down and confronted him, Deadshot surrendered to him because his daughter pleaded with him not to kill the Bat.

Lawton was registered and imprisoned in Belle Reve Penitentiary before being selected by Amanda Waller for Task Force X (unofficially known as the Suicide Squad). Deadshot was selected to descend into Midway City with the rest of the team, assisting the squad in retrieving a V.I.P. and later volunteering to stop the Enchantress to be a hero for his daughter.

The Assault Edge is from a variety of military settings, requiring Rock and Roll!, and allowing you to ignore the Automatic Fire penalty while moving, rather than forcing you to stand still.

Bruce Wayne was born just outside of Gotham City in the '70s. Not much is known about his early years, but in 1981, when him and his parents went to see a movie, Bruce's parents were shot and killed in a mugging. The young boy was taken into legal care by their bodyguard, Alfred Pennyworth. At the funeral, Bruce ran into the forest and fell down a well, discovering an enormous cave system beneath Wayne Manor.

Channeling his anger, Bruce started to train his mind and body for his one-man crusade against the Gotham crime wave. At the age of 25, Bruce created the "Batman" legend, and fought crime for 20 years using his technique and a variety of gadgets, weapons, and vehicles, and eventually took on a sidekick in the form of Robin. It appears, however, that Robin was murdered by the Joker, snapping Batman and making him lose his disregard for killing his enemies. At some point during this period, Wayne Manor was burned down, prompting Bruce and Alfred to move into a glass mansion near the lake, directly above the Batcave.

In 2013, however, he and the rest of the world received a broadcast from General Zod, encouraging them to give up the refugee Cal-El in exchange for leaving the planet intact. However, Zod descended into Metropolis anyways, and as the World Machine began its work, Bruce took a helicopter into the city to try and evacuate his close friend Jack O'Dwyer and as much of his Wayne Financial staff as he could manage.

During the engagement between Superman and Zod, however, the building was collapsed, killing Jack and many staff members. Bruce did his best to assist rescue teams, but he could do very little, simple looking on in rage as the aliens battled each other.

18 months later, Bruce is been working on discovering a method to stop Superman if he ever needs to.

The Batcave is Bruce's second home. It contains space for him to work on all of his gadgets and vehicles, as well as living space and room for him to train and stay in tip top shape. Along with all of this, it contains the Bat-Computer—a supercomputer that assists him in monitoring communications in Gotham as well as run decryption and analysis.

Invent Powers:
  • Armor +16 (6): Partial Protection (–1). Limitation (–1, extremely heavy). Batman constructed this armor to keep himself safe during his fight with Superman.
  • Malfunction (3): Area Effect. Limitation (–1, guns only), Limitation (–1, can only target weapons enemies are currently equipped with). These small gadgets are used to disable firearms, but are difficult to deploy once in combat.
  • Interface (3): Code Breaker. This small device is used several times to clone phone and server information and to later decrypt the data.
This Batman is utterly terrifying, and I'm glad I finally had the chance to put him out here for the masses. Sure, the movie wasn't super great, but it was absolutely worth watching just for the Batflek.
