Species Name: Beppa-Seijin / Beppans
Home Planet/Starting Planet: Planet Beppa
Starting Power: 1500-2000
Appearance: Beppans are hulking green humanoids who typically stand at gargantuan heights of 6 to 8 eight feet. Musclebound by birth, their wrestler bodies are build to take damage and deal it out in turn. In adulthood, they develop wide muscular frames. Their most defining trait is their natural long black hair. Typically growing in a mass of thick black waves, Beppan hair quickly grows out to waist level if it is not cut or trimmed.
Background: These men have inhabited the smoldering world of Beppa since before recorded history. Beppa was once the axis of the galactic wrestling federation, it's fighters completely unparalleled, especially when fighting under the Makyo Star. Beppa's reputation as a stomping ground for powerful fighters spread far and wide during those ages, Beppa went through a brief period of rapid industrialization. Outmodded settlements still dot the territories, which are now used as trading posts or camps. Wrestling around volcanoes and sometimes in volcanoes themselves, Beppans become hardened warriors from both nature and nurture. Although Beppa is no longer the talking point of the Galaxy it once was, powerful mercenaries still call it's Volcanic plains their home, and the Dore outpost is one of the more relevant refueling stations of the Arcosian empire. Beppan Royalty has been challenged and fought for as a tradition for millennium, but the monarchy holds little hard power over the scattered rural settlements and shady criminal crevices of the planet.
Name Pun Theme(s): Beppan names are usually based off pepper, salt, or paprika.
Wrestling Weights: Training in bodybuilding from birth, the wrestling centric culture of the Beppa-Seijin means they start out with unsellable medium weights (Hybridizes as light weights.)
Charred Skin: Hardened by the tough volcanic environment of the planet, Beppans are all about defense. In the heat of battle, Beppans can trigger a one time +x2 to their defensive PL. (Hybridizes as Durability. Hybrids can pick one UC, not both.)
Vulcan - x10
Legends tell of ancient Beppan volcanoes at the very conception of the planet which would emit powerful radiation, transforming regular Beppan-Seijin into raving monsters. Those volcanoes have been long dormant, but the powerful energy of the Makyo Star triggers the same reaction in the Beppa-Seijin biology. In this form, Beppans become brutal creatures of sadism, their pupils disappearing, and their forearms and hands swelling with muscle, giving the appearance of gauntlets.
Harnessed Vulcan - x9
At 50,000 PL, a Beppan is capable of triggering the Vulcan transformation on their own, but their brutal cruelty is lessened, resulting in a slight reduction of fighting spirit.
Wrestling Prime! - x16
At a power level of 150,000, A Beppan is poised to be at the top of the wrestling food chain! This form is permanent, unless the Beppan decides to push their Vulcan form further still! Requires Ki suppression.
Swollen Vulcan - x12/x18
When a Beppan reaches a power level of 150,000, they become capable of pushing their Vulcan form to new heights. In the Swollen state, muscles boil over, transforming the warrior into a hulking goliath. Reaching this state of overload requires Bulking!
Ultra Beppan - x20
When a Beppan's training finally levels off at 200,000 PL, they will find that careful focus of their power in their base form outclasses the impermanent bursts of Vulcan strength. In this state, light starkly reflects around the warrior, resulting in a a slight glint of whiteness in the pupils and an extra shine on their thick black hair.
Impenetrable Vulcan - x25/x32
If the Swollen Vulcan state is saturated even further with the volcanic radiation of the Makyo Star, a Beppan ascends to a further tier of power. This state requires a minimum of 300,000 PL to tap into, and is the most drastically different in appearance thus far. Ascending to a hight of up to 12 feet, the Beppan's muscles become extremely prominent but not over-bulked. This is a form capable of finite agility and extreme durability.
? - x42
No Beppan has ever ascended past the Impenetrable Vulcan state. What lies beyond may simply be a further perfection of the base form, or another volcanic transformation, but nothing is certain.
