LUCAAAAAAAAAAReal Name: Gabriella Maria Santos
In-Ring Name: La Vibora

Appearance: A lithe Latina woman in her late 20s with a few tattoos and piercing green eyes. Her long black hair sports a thick green stripe as it comes out the back of her mask and down to the center of her back. Her standard attire is a pair of tight black pants with a thick green sequin snake wrapping up around each leg and a green halter top with black trim. Oh and of course, the mask. Called "delightfully old-school" by some, it is in fact the actual mask worn by her mentor El Vibora back during his Apex run: A black base with openings for the eyes and mouth, the eyeholes trimmed by green and gold in a pattern that looks like a pair of open mouthed vipers, complete with fangs jutting out on the interior of each eye.

Gimmick: The Luchador; Tecnico (Face)
Hailing From: Mexico City, Mexico
Entrance: The lights go out and the first few bars of Bamoleo by the Gypsy Kings play before being cut off by a woman's evil laughter. The song then hard cuts to the Ensiferum cover as a blast of green pyro lights up the darkness. A few spotlights then show on La Vibora, running out and high fiving as many fans as she can as she does one circuit around the ring. Finally she slides into the ring and bobs her upper body and head like a snake. If her opponent is already down at the ring, she will also stare at them unblinkingly during this time.
Want: A Championship Title!
Finisher: Twisted Fang - A crazy highflying maneuver and former signature move of El Vibora. The attacker half runs/half climbs up the ring ropes to the top in the middle of the ring (not at the turnbuckle) and immediatly jumps off into a phoneixrana.

 


 


How much about PbtA do you know? A lot, its one of my fave systems. Currently involved in another PtbA game on this very site.

How much about professional wrestling do you know? Quite a bit, used to watch it religiously with my sister back in the days of "The Merger" and the fall of the WCW.

Hey, everyone wants to be the bad guy! Lilith is really more of a tweener though, but the rules don't account for that.

Nothing wrong with that. Villains always have the most fun anyways Truth be told I think Lilith and Pain would make a great pairing. Pain needs someone to 'Have Summoned him from the Depths of Hell' and to speak on his behalf so that he can keep his mystique. In exchange Lilith gets a big old spooky meat wall to stand behind as she Provokes the competition; at least until Pain breaks free of her 'Witchy Control' and makes his Heel turn.

It even works if both are eventually making the Heel turn. Maybe Pain goes first after breaking free of her control, turning against his dark mistress. This opens up an epic 'War' between the two with Pain hunting after those Lilith corrupts to her side as he closes in on Lilith herself. But eventually, maybe after a betrayal from her would be protectors Lilith is put in 'real' danger only to have Pain rescue her. This helps open up a redemption arch for Lilith as she starts realizing that maybe she wants more then just mindless minions or questionable allies while Pain continues to hunt those who truly deserve to be punished. He's not punishing the guilty to 'Drag People to Hell' as much as scare them straight so that they don't face the same 'Fate' he did when he first passed on.

Oooohh! So many ideas

Might have to change his name to Curse though, as in 'The Witch's Curse upon Apex Wrestling'. I did like the idea of the 'Rack of Pain' being his finisher but maybe something else could work just as well.

(If he settles for Raise the Bar For Violence, if he fails to get the crowd. Well, I see Joey--Joey, not Hugo--headed to a dark place...)

I was making that mistake too, and then I realized I was completely missing the second edition PDFs, which are the first set of links on the right side of the page.

I should have made that more clear. I apologise to all, I've updated the ad to this link.

Also, I'm loving all the wrestlers so far. Even if we have a full heel group, all that means is we'll have a series of "Who's the bigger monster" and "Bad Vs Evil" Story lines. Or everyone line up in front of the Hulk Hogan expy to be pinned in increasingly ridiculous finishes, give it the real old school wrestling feel

Added the Roleplay Sample. Had a little hard of a time figuring this out, given Pain's likely silent nature but I think his gives an idea of how he can work.

Being a babyface in a world where everyone basically has testosterone poisoning is a hard concept to do. Like you have to be arrogant and boastful but not disrespectful or insulting, its a hell of a line to walk. But as an aside, Flex Fuller seems to have kind of a hulk hogan/macho man vibe to him. IIRC those guys, while being faces, really did some moves that would be considered heel moves by anyone else that didn't have the kind of push they did

Thanks for this, its been on my todo list to create. Look at all those lovely heels though, I'll still leave this open until the 11th and see if we can get anyone else but I think we have a good team to go with

I didn't really think of Hugo as either a babyface or a heel, but he is definitely closer to the former than the later. If he sees being on the side of the angels as getting him loyal fans, he'll keep his act clean. Well, clean-er.

I could see him as a problematic ally of a goody two-shoes; Hugo respects his ally's ethics, yet uses the heel tactics the first time the bad guys cross the line.
