Radimir Tarasov

Name: Radimir Tarasov
Age: 17
Nationality: NERU
Appearance: Radimir is built like a soldier(most of his width is across the chest and shoulders), has short-cropped blonde hair so pale it verges on white and tends to wear plain army-green clothes. His only divergence from that style is occasionally camouflage-patterned clothes(he's not actually a soldier yet, but he plans to be) and sometimes a headband.
Personality: Radimir comes from a family of soldiers. His father's father's father, etc. have all been soldiers, but he is the only Newtype in his family. As soon as it turned out he had some whiggity powers, he was instantly enrolled in a NERU military school to make sure that he'd grow up with an undying loyalty to his nation and a devotion to discipline. They succeeded on both counts. Now he's a transfer student sent to APTO as a diplomatic gesture, and he's intent on showing these lazy trans-Atlantic suckers what a proper NERU soldier is made of. He's loudly patriotic, convinced of NERU's superiority and intent on maintaining perfect physical shape. He is also, however, a sucker for authority, which includes teachers, and will make any effort to impress them by being more disciplined and capable than his fellow students. Below the discipline, though, he's a relatively normal guy who just wants friends and likes to look at ladies, but he really does enjoy competition, friendly or otherwise.

Chill Field: Weapon 4(Aura, Piercing 3, Selective, Area 4(30m Radius), Drain Body 2). Radimir freezes the hell out of everything around him, but can choose to spare anyone he cares about from the worst of it. Besides hurting people with intense cold, it also saps their physical strength and makes their limbs stiff and hard to move. 19 points total.

Snow Fight!: Weapon 5(Range 2, Muscle, Autofire). When using Snow Fight, Radimir instantly chills nearby air moisture, causing it to precipitate as hard-packed snow. This is used to give him a pile of hard, icy snowballs he can hurl at people or things. 14 points total.

Snow Blindness: Sensory Block 3(Sight, Hearing, Smell, Area 5, Range 2), Deplete(-3 points, expend 1 energy every 1 minute), Activation(-2 points, must spend a round preparing to use the power before using it). Radimir creates a snow-storm, a whipping, blinding, howling storm of snow flakes. It prevents anyone from seeing, hearing or smelling anything. 14 points total.

Slippery Zone: Weapon 2(Incapacitate 5, Stun). Radimir ices over the ground in an area, making it impossible to walk or run through it without risking slipping. Anyone who slips is down for a while as they try to get up again, and they're also very likely to catch themselves a nasty crack as they go down(Soul or Body + Resistance vs TN 14 to avoid Incapacitation). 10 points total.

Ice Dome/Sphere: Force Field 4(Area 4, Range 3, Air-Tight, Both Directions, Offensive). Forms an impenetrable sphere(or dome, on the ground) of ice around something to help protect it, though whoever or whatever's protected can't get out of it unless they smash their way out or Radimir lets the ice melt. Might have unpleasant results if used on something flying at speed. 20 points total, 12 Armor

Knuckle Snowball: Weapon 5(Stun, Muscle, Accurate 1), Melee Defense 2. Radimir surrounds his hands and feet with hard shells of ice and snow, permitting him to deliver brutal attacks and use his hands and feet to deflect attacks more effectively. 18 points total.

Ice Manacles: Weapon 4(Accurate 3, Incapacitate 5, Range 3, Drain Body 3). A beam of utter cold that leaves the victim's hands and feet encased in frozen water, possibly leaving them unable to move, but at the very least making them a lot slower. Of course the intense cold is also likely to cause frostbite and so on(Soul or Body + Resistance vs TN 14 to avoid Incapacitation). 20 points total.

Cooldown: Enviromental Influence 3: Cold, Snow, Wind(Basically permits Radimir to make it snow a bit, cool down things around him, conjure up a chill wind, etc.). 6 points total.

Cold Carapace: Armor 1 to 10(+2 to +20 damage soaking). Radimir freezes air moisture into a hardened carapace to serve much like body armor, to anyone else it'd be ridiculously uncomfortable, but Radimir barely notices cold. 2 to 20 points total.

Generic Ice Blast: Weapon 5(Range 2, Accurate 2, Muscle). 16 points. 39 damage. +6 attack modifier.

Appearance: Compared to APTO mecha the NeruMech is short and stubby, its black chassis giving it a somewhat sinister appearance. It mostly appears to be made up of a wide and short torso with two short legs. It's four long, double-jointed arms unfold from its back and have surprising strength. Originally being a mining mecha it carries no weapons but has ridiculous strength for pulling enemies apart and the speed to close with them rapidly in space.

While not particularly manoeuvrable, and therefore a very, very easy target, it can move like a flash in space. It's also reasonable at atmospheric flight, with its large fuel tanks and efficient engines giving it much longer in-flight time(both in space and in atmosphere) before it needs to refuel and cool down. Unfortunately its short legs are mostly there to help it get somewhere it can take off, as it has a rather slow gait.
