Create a character that gained his/her powers from a symbiote costume/weapon. The symbiote can be organic or metal based or combination of both.

Concept is similar with Venom, Witchblade or even The Phalanx (from Marvel). You may use these characters as you base characters but the storyline of your character must be original. Final submission will be Friday next week (June 19, 2009).

Good luck and let us see your concept get wild!

Info...

A symbiote is an organism that binds itself with another organism forming a mutual relationship that can benefit both. Like for the case of Sara Pezzini and the Witchblade, the witchblade protects Sara while Sara gives the witchblade what it wants which is basically chaos and war. Certain anime characters, have living robot suites that makes uses of the blood of their human wielder to power them up.
The concept of the character that we have to do is that these characters' powers are coming from their symbiote costume or weapon.

I hope this clarifies things... ;-)

This is my character Lady Gaia (Her real name is unknown). Her symbiote is a plant like creature from the planet Gora Krus. The symbiote calls itself, Kar Ul' Krus which means traveller from Krus. (Gora means planet in the symbiote's language.)

Symbiote gave it's owner, super strength under sunlight and is able to control any life form to her advantage. Besides that, like plants, the host's body parts can regrow back to whenever it is cut off making her near immortal but her body parts does not regenerate as fast as Deadpool or Wolverine. Her body parts takes around one day under the sun and with proper nutrients to grow back. However, the host must spend time under sun every day in order to feed the symbiote as it goes through photosysnthetic process. Besides that, the owner will lose memories in exchange for all the powers given as past memories up to the host gaining the symbiote as the first energy supplement.

@PLUTON: WOW!! Amazing! Can you explain the symbiote and what effect does it has to the host. What the host have to actually do allow the symbiote to live with it?

Looks like the only way my character can win is through sex appeal, hehehe.

I can imagine that when all of us are done with our characters, we could create a story about it. It could be a race of symbiotic creatures crash landed on Earth and the battle which at first raged on their planet like I said above, Gora Krus. So the symbiotic creatures decide to give their "services" to certain humans who are deemed fit to contain them. The evil ones feed off war criminals and psychopaths while the good symbiotes feed off "good people." Hahha, we could create our own storyline with this!! Haha.

Nah... its not a drawing contest... Its the idea that counts....
Anyway about the symbiote... Im not quite sure...  I havent made a cool story in mind yet... Have u ever play half life 2? Do u remember the small aliens that stuck on peoples heads and turn them in to zombies? Well its smth like that but it doesnt turn him into a zombie realy. It  made him more evil though... It aslo transformed his body a little bit... He become more muscular and he got an eye on his belly LOL!!!..... I know its not such a great story but Im still thinking about it...
I like your story... Im really anxious to see some more characters....
