Concept:

The gentle giant

Orientation:

Homosexual

Demeanor:

Confidant - You understand people, and, more importantly, you like them. You are a facilitator who listens and advises. People confess to you and in return you give them advice, most of which is good (though sometimes his advice is more for his own benefit than for that of the recipient). You are very interested in other people, and who and what they are.

Nature:

Defender - You stand guard over that for which you care.

Personality:

He's a gentle giant. He's kind to his friends but can get serious and menacing in battle especially when defending his friends or people in danger. He's an artist and loves to draw and has a notebook of sketches he has drawn.

He is a closet homosexual for awhile because he feared people's reactions or retribution while living in Russia. He was also shy around women but found men easier to talk to which made it awkeward when he had crushes he didn't act on. After joining the Institute he's opened up little. But is very wary of trusting people with all of his secrets.

But he has gained several loyal friends at the mansion. He's even had crushes on some that came and went as he never acted on them. And soon he saw the X-men as a second family. Brothers and sisters to protect. And a second chance to have a family. The loss of his previous one still haunts him and at times he gets a haunted look in his eyes if something triggers a memory he's tried to forget. When someone asks he dismisses it to avoid suspicion.

Power Description:

ORGANGIC STEEL FORM - Colossus can convert the tissue of his entire body into an organic, steel-like substance. This substance resembling steel is of unknown composition, but appears to be analogous to osmium and to carbon steel. He is able to transform into this armor-like state at will (the process is virtually instantaneous) and remain in that form for an as-yet undetermined amount of time. Once in his armored form, he remains so until he consciously wills himself back to normal. While in the armored state, Colossus possesses the same degree of mobility that he does in his normal form.

- ENVIRONMENTAL INDEPENDENCE: When in his armored form, Colossus does not need to eat or breath. As such he is capable of surviving the deepest points of the oceans, plumping the depths of them most fiery volcanoes, and he can even exist in the vacuum of outerspace.

- RESILIENCE (Superhuman): In his armored form, Colossus is completely bulletproof and invulnerable to most forms of bodily harm. He can survive extremes of temperature. He can also survive falls from great heights while in his armored body. Unlike most characters, Colossus demonstrates a significant resistance to Rogue's absorption abilities. Most victims are left nearly powerless and weak. Colossus simply shrugged off the effect and immediately used his powers to throw Wolverine at a Sentinel.

- STAMINA (Superhuman): Also, while in armored form, Colossus' musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins than the musculature of a normal human. At his peak, he can physically exert himself at peak capacity for several days before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him. He was unfazed by touching Rogue and could give her his armor abilities for as long as she touched him, without any visible cost to himself.

- STRENGTH (Superhuman): After transforming into his armored state, Colossus possesses vast, inhuman strength, allowing him to send people flying with one arm, break stone or dent metal effortlessly, and is immune to the strength of regular humans and even most super humans. Only the Mark X Sentinel's and Angel Dust have been able to match him in strength or overpower him. Even without his metal form, he broke through a wall effortlessly with his fist and carry a very large TV under one arm whilst walking. His strength level was roughly 70 tons as a teenager growing up in the USA. In the revised timeline he appears to have trained harder and is older, allowing him to be capable of pressing 100 tons.

Aptitude:

AGRICULTURE/FARMING - Having lived and worked on a Russian farming commune as a child through to his mid-teens, Piotr has a solid understanding of what must be done to raise a crop in the harshest of climates. He has extensive knowledge of with crop production, soil management, manufacturing, and distribution. He's also good at development and repairing of equipment, irrigation systems and landscape planning. He was training to take over from his father so he's not a total expert on the subject but he knows more than the average person would. His training was interrupted when he had to leave but he did read more on the subjects in his spare time. Part of him hopes to one day return to his home and take his farm back. Or start a new one here in the States in the future. He often tends to the garden and greenery around the mansion even if it's just making sure they have enough water, and sunlight.

ART - Piotr has a great passion for art, and is a very skilled painter and sketch artist. He's often seen carrying a sketchbook or notebook to jot down ideas or even make sketches of things from birds, to trees to even his teammates.

BOXING - In an effort to better learn how to control his immense strength, and ensure he doesn't harm anyone else by accident, he has recently taken up boxing as a form of training. However he often does so out of his osmium form, and has thankfully had no use for it in a mission.

CONSTRUCTION - Life on the farm has given Piotr a skill when it comes to constructing various things and structures

LANGUAGES - Colossus is bilingual, being both fluent in Russian and English. Despite having lived in America for several years now, his Russain is still flawless.

COMBAT STYLE - Even though Piotr has a gentle demeanor and personality, he is a skilled hand to hand combatant, having honed his combat skills within the X-Men's Danger Room. He’s proficient in the applying of holds.

COMBAT STYLE (Martial Arts A): This form of martial arts concentrates on using an opponent's strength against him, and is typical of oriental- American forms such as judo and karate. The practitioner of this type of martial arts can Stun or Slam an opponent regardless of their comparative Strengths and Endurances

COMBAT STYLE (Martial Arts B) - This form of martial arts is keyed on offense and inflicting damage in short, quick bursts, and includes such disciplines as boxing. The practitioner of this form of martial arts gains a +1CS to Fighting ability when engaged in unarmed combat.

COMBAT STYLE (Martial Arts C) - This form of martial arts concentrates on holds and escapes. The practitioner of this form gains a +1CS to his Strength for Grappling attacks (including damage), a +1CS to Strength for Escaping and a +1CS to Agility for purposes of Dodging.

COMBAT STYLE (Martial Arts L) - This Martial Art focuses on sumo wrestling and absorbing/redirecting force. So called "rolling with the blow" The martial art allows a character a +1CS to endurance for the purpose of checking for slams and stun checks as a result of slugfest combat only. This martial art can not be applied if the hero is blindsided.

MECHANICS - Piotr is skilled in knowing how some machines work as well as how to fix them from his years on the farm

FIRST AID - Colossus knows the basics of medicine and is able to use a first aid kit. He can clean wounds, and bandage them. Accidents happened a lot on the farm, at the school and on missions. While he's not an expert in the subject like a doctor he can help keep people patched up to be looked at later with someone with more experience.

And while not an surgeon, Piotr has stitched up multiple wounds, set broken bones, and other such things dating back to early teens on the commune. He continued those skills while working at the mansion. Thankfully he hasn't had to use this skill much since joining the team.

PILOT (X-Jet, Helicopter) - Colossus is capable of piloting, with expertise ranging from single/twin prop planes all the way up to jets as sophisticated as the X-Men's S-71 Blackbird.

WRESTLING - The hero with this Talent is proficient in applying holds. It includes familiar types of wrestling as well as the sumo forms of the art. The hero with this Talent gains a +2CS when making Grappling attacks, but gains no benefit in damage. A hero with Martial Arts B and this Talent gains a +3CS to hit in a Grappling attack, and a +1CS for damage.

Merit:

APPROACHABLE - People often come to him for advice or help on homework and studying. He became like a big brother/uncle to many of the students as well as the X-men.

ATHLETIC - He often competed in sports and games at the mansion not having time to do it while growing up on his farm in Russia. He didn't always win but he loved to compete. He wasn't super competitive about it though choosing to have fun over winning. He jogs a lot as well as trains in the danger room with and without others.

ATTRACTIVE-Peter is very good looking and can turn heads wherever he goes, even though he doesn't pay much attention to it sometimes and can be a little bashful when complimented on his looks.

CONVICTION - Piotr is generally considered to be pure of heart, and has a very strong sense of what is wrong and right. He holds himself to a stringent moral code. A lifetime of discipline and restraint enable Colossus to resist the forces of evil and temptation more than most.

DAMN HEALTHY-Peter's exercise and eating habits combined with his life on the farm have given a very hardy constitution

DISCIPLINED- Piotr is a mutant of great self control. He controls his behavior and allows his mind and body to be in peak physical condition. He was also more knowledgeable in classes and training sessions as he studied more and focused. Often helping others when they asked him too.

HARD TO KILL- While his human form is as mortal as anyone else, Piotr's organic steel body is incredibly tough and resilient. He can withstand vast amounts of damage, and also lacks the need to eat, breathe, or sleep while transformed. He is also resistant to Rogue's touch-based powers when he is in armored form.

MATURITY - Piotr has seen and experienced a great deal for someone of his age, and was forced to grow up very quickly. His stoicism and responsibility, combined with his physical appearance, mean that he is often regarded as being much older than he is.

Flaw:

CHIVALRY - He's extremely chivalrous and hesitant to fight female opponents but will if necessary. This could be used against him if female enemies take advantage of it.

MAGNETISM - When in his organic steel form, Colossus susceptible to the effects of metals magnetism just as any other metal would be

HISTORY

 

Character History:

Piotr was born on his family farm in Lake Baikal, Sibari. He has an older brother named Mikhail and a younger sister named Illyana. Mikhail always stood up for his younger siblings which did annoy Piotr sometimes. He wanted to prove he could stand up for himself but often felt like he was in his brother's shadow. Often being compared to him saying he wasn't strong enough or suave enough with the ladies.

He often tripped or stuttered around women which some find adorable and others found annoying. Piotr was unaware of his appeal to a few female admirers. He'd gotten a few secret admirer letters that often had him blushing and getting rid of before his siblings or friends saw them not wanting to be teased. Or worse someone trying to hook him up. He avoided blind dates by being a workaholic. Whether it was studying or working on the farm. His other problem was he was gay but afraid of rejection or people's hated and retribution. So he kept quiet not acting on any of his feelings.

This didn't give much of a social life but most of his friends worked at home or had jobs after school. His parents did insist on giving him time off on the weekends so he could hang out with friends or his brothers just doing fun things. When he was fifteen Mikhail became a Russian cosmonaut and Piotr saw less and less of his older brother. Who often went on missions.

A few months later a mission went wrong as the shuttle exploded during reentry killing Mikhail and the rest of the crew. This devastated Piotr and his family. Of course he had no idea his brother's death was faked because he was a mutant and people wanted to force him to use their powers to create a weapon. Piotr became more protective of his sister after this not wanting to lose her too wanting to try to honor his brother at the same time. Sometimes he could be a tad overprotective causing him and his sister to fight but they never stayed mad at each other for long.

On the two year anniversary of his brother's death a seventeen year old Piotr returned from the fields in a moment that would change his life forever. He saw Illyana coming home from a friend's house and a piece of farm equipment came loose and went towards her. Piotr shoved her out of the way risking his life for her and expected to die or at least get seriously hurt. Instead his body turned into solid steel as the equipment hit him saving his life.

His parents and sister didn't fear him but asked him to keep his abilities secret for his own safety. He used his powers to help out around the farm for the next couple months. But his secret didn't as long as he hoped. Someone had seen him use his powers and had panicked. The local police had come viewing him as a potential dangerous mutant. Piotr fled Russia with the help of his parents and some left over money on a life insurance policy for Mihail.

He was nearly caught but rescued by Xavier who brought him to America to live at the Xavier Institute. He helped him get citizenship in America as Piotr knew he would likely be unable to return to his homeland. When he asked about his family he learned his home was seized by the government and his family fled into hiding.

Piotr continued his education at the mansion and joined the X-men team. He gained the name Colossus for his metallic alter ego. Piotr gained many friends and even a few crushes on some of the male students and teachers but never acted on them. His fear of rejection was too strong and fear of losing this family on top of his own family. After graduating the Academy he has opted to stay to help other students. He longs to be reunited with his family and secretly wishes to meet a guy who'd want and love him in return. He helped out in many missions and eventually joined the X-men. He became a brother of sorts to many of the X-men and mutants there.

Despite Xavier and the rest of the team's best efforts he hadn't seen or heard from his sister or parents and hoped they were alright. Having faith they were alive somewhere kept him from breaking down completely. He did have a few sessions with Xavier when they first when missing but soon it had just become a weekly thing as he found he enjoyed chatting with the professor.

Now he is 22 and has a new family in the X-men and the students here. He still misses his old family but he couldn't put his life on hold waiting for clues or answers to them as he felt he might go crazy if he did that. After so many false leads and dead ends he stopped asking but knew Xavier likely didn't give up. But he was tired of giving his hopes up only to see them get ruined each time. If he ever did see his family again he would be glad to see them again. But he had to move on with his life and perhaps find someone to love.
