Alright, let's hope this I'll work
Faction: The Blades
Appearance: Kex is of average musculature for a Skakdi, but is still very clearly built with force in mind rather than grace. He is lanky and kind of scruffy, and has a particularly large and impressive spine, that seems to rustle when he is agitated, or sad, or angry, or really just about all the time. He’s primarily colored brown, with some tan highlights on his shoulders, thighs, hands and feet
Powers: As usual for Skakdi, Kex has three powers:
- The Elemental Power of Stone: Can be accessed through his weapon or when paired with another Skakdi
- Heat Vision: Often used to light fuses at a distance or to weld and slice apart scrap metal
- Spine quills: Kex’s spine can fire off its points like quills, spreading everywhere behind him, although they don’t go off directly to the sides or the front. Kex’s spine quills regenerate after each discharge, but it takes a few hours at best.
Equipment: Kex carries with him an assortment of grenades and other explosives that he’s made himself, and otherwise owns the necessary tools to make more.
Kex also owns an arm-mounted, cylindrical cannon that he uses to tap into his elemental powers in the form of stone-based ammunition; ranging from rapid-fire pellets to single-shot boulders. The bigger the projectile the longer Kex must charge up his weapon before firing.
Skills: Kex is fairly strong and durable, but is also more agile than the average Skakdi. He’s got good practice with his weapons and powers and can hold his own well enough in a fight. His true talent, however, lies with his skill with explosives; Kex is a bona fide demolitions expert and wants everyone to know it. If you need someone to blow up a building, raze a tunnel or make you some grenades on short notice, Kex is your man. Kex's explosives have an odd sort of "flair" to them, with colored flashes and unusual sounds. Kex himself has explained this as his way of looking at explosions as an art form.
Weaknesses: Kex is rather easy to anger, and is also not nearly as brave as he wants everyone to believe. He’s got poor close combat skills and is not exactly stealthy. His sight is also weakened temporarily after using his Heat Vision.
Bio: Kex lived on Zakaz for most of his life, and before Spiriah’s experiments he was a bona fide fireworks specialist, which is what led to him taking up explosives of the violent nature afterward (albeit with an "artistic" inkling). His skills made him a fairly sought after asset, and he tended to flip-flop back and forth between factions at a whim.
When he ended up on Metru Nui while fleeing from the upheaval in the MU, he quickly found the Blades the most to his liking, and joined their side on the battle for the City.
Kex has often been described as a fire-spitter trapped in a rock-biter’s body, something he doesn’t completely disagree with. His explosive touch is reflected with an explosive personality; he’s got a big temper and an even bigger head, which he tends to stick pretty far up his own rear. Despite being about as arrogant, lippy and self-centered as you can get, Kex does his job with the Blades, and never acts out when Swordshifter (or more likely, his lieutenant, Iceblade) is close by. This is because, although he wouldn’t want you to know this, Swordshifter is the first being to ever truly scare him. Another reason is because Kex does rather enjoy the nature of the tasks he's usually assigned to, due to the fact that he's got a taste for gratuitous destruction and carnage.
