Background

Robbie Reyes is a Latin-American raised on the east side of Los Angeles by his uncle Eli Morrow alongside his younger brother Gabe. Robbie is an 11th grade High school drop out by way of Garfield High School, instead taking a job working at Canelo's Auto and Body for a time. One day, Reyes had decided to steal his uncle, Eli's (apparently dope, his own words) car and take it for an illegal drag race in Los Angeles for some extra cash and street cred. While he was quietly pushing the car out of the drive in an effort not to disturb or warn his uncle as to his activities, Reyes was caught red-handed by his younger brother Gabe and, Filled with his own brotherly pride and ego(and standard big-brother-bad-influence), Robbie invited Gabe to join him for the race and off they went! However, they ran into a gang on the way who had a hit on their uncle for unknown reasons, and the car was trashed by bullets and consequent barrel rolling, with Robbie being thrown from the car.

As he was flying through the air with a fatal date with the ground, Reyes' last thought was a call for help to anyone who would listen, be it God, the universe, anyone, to save Gabe, as he blamed himself for this whole mess. Reyes then hit the street hard and died immediatly on impact as his corpse rolled across the dirt, motionless. However, this was not the end. in the darkness, Robbie heard a strange voice asking him if he wanted to avenge both his own death -and- to get revenge on those who harmed his brother and himself, and in the grand scheme of things, his uncle. Feeling as this was his one and only chance, he said the magic word: 'Yes. A thousand times Yes.' and a moment later he was alive again. A man on a motorcycle (whom Gabe often called a 'good samaritan'after the fact), pulled him from the car wreck and Gabe was alive and well, though disabled…such actions of goodwill came at a heavy price. At the cost of his soul, The rider touched Robbie, and he became the Spirit of Vengeance, the Ghost Rider!

IC Events

Traits

  • Enhanced Strength: In his human form, as the host of the Rider, he possesses enhanced strength, able to drag the average person with a single hand easily, throw someone several feet in the air.
  • Enhanced Durability: In his human form, his bones are denser and his muscles are harder. Such as he could fall from a building and be unharmed. Bullets bounce off of him. He can still be stabbed with great effort, but it is difficult to do so thanks to the aforementioned reasons. He can be damaged with Blunt objects and brute force.
  • Demonic Tranformation: Robbie Reyes possesses the supernatural ability to transform into the Ghost Rider. As the Ghost Rider, he possesses enhanced durability, to which he can suffer almost any kind of kinetic, blunt, sharp damage and his body won't break apart, and enhanced strength, to which he can easily throw heavy objects such as cars and columns overhead.
  • Hellfire Manipulation: Reyes is able to manipulate and generate Hellfire. A unique quality of Hellfire that distinguishes it from other forms of Pyrokinesis is the trait of burning the soul as well as the flesh. the flesh can heal, but for a short period of time one may experience 'ghost pains' in the spot they were burned in the aftermath, but this too, fades with time(full day). Robbie is completely immune to both fire and hellfire as a result, and seemingly no flames are capable of burning neither him or his clothing. He is able to imbue and enhance an object he touches with Hellfire, able to use the object as a weapon, which he commonly does to objects such as pipes, tools, and most infamously, vehicles and chains. He can use this power to incinerate as well. He can use this power even without actually turning into the Ghost Rider.
  • Healing Factor: Due to being empowered by supernatural energies, Robbie can recover completely from almost all forms damage that can be done to him in mere moments and can easily survive unscathed what would be fatal for humans, He can recover from minor wounds in seconds, major wounds in minutes, though universally depending on the severity, it can take from seconds to minutes for him to recover. (e.g -massive- explosions, falling from a tremendous height, etc.) then he'll get right up to finish what he started. Though if attacked with a supernatural force such as magic and abilities of a Holy nature, he will heal slower, and it will hurt him far more, and it will take him longer to recuperate, but his apparent inability die is still existant. and as the Ghost Rider, he is -very- hard to keep down. Transforming into the Ghost Rider and then back to his human form can allow him to recover completely from any damage he had suffered instantly (e.g, his flesh burns off when he turns into the rider. When he reverts, his flesh reappears with no sign of any damage) however, he can't do this of his own free will in most cases. Only the Rider can truly relinquish control and revert back to Reyes. Reyes has accurately described himself as nigh impossible to kill. However, he can still be knocked unconscious in his human form (and in some instances where magic is involved, his Ghost Rider form). He can even heal to the point of fully regenerating lost limbs in moments
  • Empathy: Using the powers of the Ghost Rider, Reyes can look through the eyes of another and see through their very hearts and souls to see what kind of person they truly are. He can view the entirety of their personality and mental characteristics to accurately see if they are truly evil and deserving of punishment (what he sees as 'justice'). Though he mostly judges from standard opinion, rather than the…'other guy'. In short, it's difficult to lie to him when he REALLY wants an answer."
  • Intangibility Cancel: Unlike ordinary humans, as Ghost Rider is a supernatural entity, he can touch non-corporeal entities, or, more specifically, those whose bodies are otherwise out of touch with the physical plane.
  • Penance Stare: When in close combat, the Ghost Rider can grab his opponent and lock eyes with his victim, with the effect of making him or her feel every pain that he or her has ever inflicted on anyone else innocent in their lifetime…however, it can ONLY be used to cast revenge for the innocent. It doesn't work on guiltless people, and that in itself has many meanings.
  • Supernatural Awareness:Robbie Reyes and the Ghost Rider possesses an extrasensory ability that allows him to detect any supernatural occurrences around him.
