Stormtiger is a member of Empire Eighty-Eight. After the Empire's splintering, he joins Hookwolf's "Fenrir's Chosen".


AppearanceEdit

For his costume, Stormtiger only wears loose-fitting pants, accented with chains and a white tiger mask.[1]


Abilities and PowersEdit

An aerokinetic, Stormtiger has developed several unique applications for his abilities. One technique involves drawing sounds and smells to himself, effectively enhancing his senses.[2][1]

Another is condensing air into hard ‘claws’ that he can use for CQC or launch them off as projectiles, he can then release them in explosive blasts.[1] The more time he has to draw air into the claws, the larger the resulting explosion.[3][4]

He could also deflect projectiles through his manipulation of air currents.[5]This essentially rendered him bullet-proof.[3]

He could also use his aerokinesis to achieve limited flight, essentially floating in place.[6]

EquipmentEdit

At one point, his leg was injured and ended up healing incorrectly, requiring a cast.[4]

HistoryEdit

Stormtiger knew Hookwolf back when they were both un-powered pit fighters and then parahuman pit fighters.[7]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Stormtiger – A contestant in the same underground fighting tournaments as Hookwolf, Stormtiger has aerokinesis, the ability to manipulate the air around him. He has two known special techniques: the ability to compress air into claw shaped forms around his hands and detonate it explosively, and the ability to use his aerokinesis to carry scents to his nose, giving him the ability to sniff out opponents. Goes shirtless, with loose fitting pants and chains, and a white tiger mask. - Cast (in depth)
  2. “Stormtiger, find the others of her group.” Hookwolf snarled, apparently not considering my words worth responding to.

    “Can’t,” Stormtiger spoke, from where he stood above me. “Not smelling them.”

    “You smelled her.”

    “And I smelled the two uniforms from the ambulance. Other one’s bleeding, sitting near the ambulance somewhere over there. Darkness boy isn’t around anymore or I’d be able to smell him.”

    [...]

    “Gun oil,” Stormtiger called out, whipping around to face Grue. “I smell gun oil.” - Excerpt from Buzz 7.8

  5. Who else? Menja was classified as a breaker, the spatial-warping effect that surrounded her made incoming attacks smaller even as she simultaneously made herself bigger. The darts wouldn’t even be noticeable to her. Stormtiger could deflect projectiles by sensing and adjusting air currents. With the right timing, so her shots came out of the shadow state as they arrived to make contact with him? Maybe. But he was engaged in a fist fight with Assault, and she’d be risking tagging the hero. - Excerpt from Sentinel 9.6

An aerokinetic, his techniques include drawing sounds and smells to himself, or condensing air into hard ‘claws’ that he then releases in explosive blasts. - Cast (spoiler free)
