Real Name: Warren Kenneth Worthington III.
Occupation: College student with a business curriculum, adventurer.
Identity: Publicly known.
Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with no criminal record.
Other Aliases: None.
Place of Birth: Centerpoint, Long Island, New York.
Marital Status: Single.
Known Relatives: Warren K., Sr. (grandfather, deceased); Warren K., Jr. (father); Kathryn (mother); Burt (paternal uncle).
Group Affiliation: X-Men.
Base of Operations: New York City, although he maintains residences in several cities nationwide.
History: Warren Kenneth Worthington the Third is the heir to the Worthington Industries fortune. Worthington Industries is a supplier of automobile, watercraft, and aircraft parts for much larger companies, including but not limited to General Motors, Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, and Stark Industries (see Stark Industries).

Warren's mutation, in the form of large feathered wings coming from his shoulder-blades, first appeared when he was twelve. For a long time, his father and uncle insisted that he keep his wings hidden from sight, fearing the controversy of having a mutant son; Warren's family had, up until that point, been decidedly against the mutant rights movement.

While attending a private school in Europe, Warren was instrumental in saving a number of lives on the school campus when a fire broke out in the dorms. Because he had gone out wearing a long, white nightshirt and hadn't cut his hair in months, he was mistaken by many for an angel from Heaven, particularly when he flew off and was, from the point of view of those on the ground, briefly surrounded by the halo of the full moon. Encouraged by this, he took the name Angel for whenever he had to use his wings in public.

When the Xavier Institute for Gifted Youngsters went public as a mutant high school, Warren, against the wishes of his family, immediately transferred (see Xavier Institute). Upon graduation, he shocked everyone by attending a social function held by his parents in a suit designed to let his wings show, thereby publicly revealing his status as a mutant. As a founding member of the X-Men, he wears a uniform which does not hide his face (see X-Men). His looks and charm, plus the fact that he is open about his identity, unlike most of the other X-Men, have made him the X-Men's unofficial spokesman to the press.

Lately, he has often been seen in the company of Candy Southern, a classmate who was one of the few women who turned down his initial advances (see Southern, Candy).
Height: 6'.
Weight: 150 lbs.
Eyes: Blue.
Hair: Blond.
Uniform: Red bodysuit with a white X on the front and back, white gloves, white boots, red headpiece that keeps the face open and the hair out of his eyes, yet covers the ears.
Strength Level: Angel possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. His wings generate enough lift for him to carry aloft at least 200 lbs in addition to his own weight.
Known Superhuman Powers: Angel has the ability to fly via his large, feathered wings which generate lift by flapping, much as a bird does. He is able to fly at a regular cruising speed of around 70 mph until exhaustion forces him to land. With a good tail wind or on a dive, he has been clocked at around 150 mph. Despite reports, he cannot make a transatlantic or transcontinental flight under his own power without rest.

In addition, Warren possesses a number of other adaptations to aid in flight. His lungs are adapted to allow him to breathe in the thinner upper atmosphere, and his eyes permit him to make out details at four times the distance of a normal human's.

Role-Playing Notes:
Angel is slightly spoiled due to his upbringing. He is a consummate ladies' man; his looks and charm, as well as his wallet, do not hinder this at all. Despite this, he is a good man at heart, and one of the more well-adjusted people among the super-set who genuinely tries to do what he feels is the right thing because it's the right thing to do.
