Name: Micheal “Redeye” Pilliphon
Appearance: Micheal is a huge slab of meat almost 7 feet tall. He has close cropped black hair and bright red eyes. He has a permanent scowl almost all the time
Background: Micheal grew up in a lair with his supervillain parents. They nearly conquered the world many times and were the most respected villains in the world. Michael was to be their heir. He was trained in technology and science, but did poorly in those. He was good at organization and business.
He wasn’t without his talents. He was naturally large and strong. He took to fighting extremely well and could outfight anyone in the lair by 13. This concerned his parents a great deal. Being intelligent was a necessity for a mastermind.
When he turned 18 his parents decided they would get him practical experience. They gave him a dozen minions and some laser weaponry. They told him to steal a diamond from a local museum.
At first everything was fine. Micheal got things under control. He made a plan and got everyone organized. A month after the assignment they charged the bank. They took the curator hostage and demanded the key to the diamond. The man said it was in his desk and he had to get it. Micheal agreed but kept a weapon trained on him.
The curator hit a silent alarm button as he got the key. He handed over the key and Redeye gave the key to a henchman. While Michael tried to figure out what to do next the henchman took the diamond and ran. A few moments later the police arrived. He and his men charged the windows, opening fire.
As they shot at the police, Michael slipped away and tried to sneak out but was captured. He sat in a cell for 3 days before his parents rescued him. His parents were less than pleased. He had failed every objective. Beyond that the betrayer was setting up as a new supervillain. They ordered him out of the lair.
He left empty handed. He only knew villainy, so he swallowed his pride and signed up to be a henchman. He figured with his brawn and knowledge he would make top henchman quickly. This turned out to be wishful thinking.
The other henchman learned who he was and mocked him. He applied for top henchman a dozen times but was always denied. After the last try he realized it was because of his lineage.
He was angry and frustrated when his next assignment came in. He was ordered to guard the head villain, Mr. Hate, while he tormented the superspy who tried to stop him. Michael grumbled about the job until he got there.
Mr. Hate was telling the spy the details of his secret plan. Michael listened and realized this was his chance. Without warning, he shot Mr. Hate in the back. He then stomped to the immobilized spy and shot him 3 times in the head.
Michael had a plan and no one to track him. Now he needed loyal minions to carry out the plan.
Can Michael find followers in time? Does he really understand the plot? Can he conquer the word? If you have any ideas share them in the comments or even better write a story and link it here. I’ll give you a shout out in next week’s post.
