Alright! The Ninja Turtles last week were a big hit, so this week, I'm providing four foes for them to face: Bebop, Rocksteady, Hun and The Shredder. Aside from Turtles Forever, Hun has never appeared in the same continuity as Bebop and Rocksteady, but again, I'm mashing it all together to make the ICONS Turtleverse.
The Shredder (Oroku Saki)
Armor: Invulnerability 3
Armor Blades: Strike (Slashing) 4
Martial Arts Master
Weapons (Blades) Master
"When The Evil Shredder Attacks..."
Leader of the Foot Clan
Access To Alien Technology
Connections: Hun, Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady
Enemies: Splinter and the Ninja Turtles
Blinded by Vengeance
The Shredder is an omnipresent shadow looming over The Ninja Turtles. He's a nefarious criminal mastermind, a ruthless assassin and a gifted martial artist. He has no honor. He has no morals. He will sacrifice people, use machines when people fail, or mutate new henchmen with no regard for what he's doing to them. On his right hand is the vicious Hun and on his left is the bizarre renegade Utrom known as Krang. Shredder will make any alliance that will further his goals and cut loose his alliances of convenience at a moment's notice.
Between The Foot Clan, Hun's Purple Dragons and Krang's twisted genius, Shredder is capable of fielding waves of cannon fodder at once if properly mobilized. Splinter and the Turtles are always there to stop him, and Shredder has let his hatred of Splinter and The Turtles blind him more than once. His biggest problem, however, isn't even his...but his reliance on henchmen, especially Bebop and Rocksteady. It is not uncommon at all for a flawless master plan to fall apart because Bebop hits the wrong switch or Rocksteady accidentally destroys Shredder's new Super Device.
Note: Use Ninja and Robot stats found in the corebook for the various types of Foot Soldiers.
Hun (Hunter Mason)
Martial Arts Expert
Leader of the Purple Dragons
Shredder's Right Hand
Always Taking A Fall
Online Rival: Michelangelo
Shredder's right hand man is Hun, a powerful, skilled martial artist and leader of The Purple Dragons. He absolutely hates working with Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang, Baxter Stockman or any of Shredder's other freaks, but he respects the man himself, so he goes along with it...most of the time. The Purple Dragons get used for Shredder's menial jobs, and the ones with the most promise enter training for the Foot Clan. Despite not being uncoordinated, Hun does have a tendency to fall flat on his face at the worst time: If he's fighting on a roof top, it is very likely that he will take a spill off of it and to the dumpster below, for example. Raphael and Hun have a very severe dislike for one another that flares up whenever they are near each other. Hun is also a (closeted) gamer, loving MMORPGs. Fate has a way of making him cross paths with Michelangelo in MMORPGs, and even though they don't realize who the other one is, they tend to rub each other the wrong way.
Note: Use Thug stats found in the corebook for the Purple Dragons.
Best Friend: Rocksteady
Too Stupid To Know Better
Not Really Evil
One Friend In The World
Pretty Much Incompetent
Bebop is a street thug who was mutated into a warthog and now serves Shredder, not out of any real sense of evil, but because he's just a follower at heart. His one friend in the world is Rocksteady, the only person that really cares if anything happens to Bebop and vice versa. If pushed to do anything too extreme, Bebop can be appealed to, he's easily tricked and, even if left to his own devices, is bound to screw up anyway. Often armed with advanced technology by Shredder and Krang, Bebop usually has no skill with the weapons and devices.
Horn: Strike (Slashing) 3
Tough Hide: Invulnerability 3
Best Friend: Bebop
One Friend In The World
Like Bebop, Rocksteady is a mutated thug who follows Shredder's orders because he doesn't have enough initiative to do anything else. Rocksteady is a little more cold hearted than Bebop, but if you get through to Bebop, you'll get through to Rocksteady by proxy. Rocksteady has a tendency to rush headlong into combat which helps him out sometimes, but fails him more often than not. If Rocksteady and Bebop were ever given something more constructive to do with their time and energy, they probably wouldn't be criminals anymore.
