Default Game: Guess the character!

Okay, we did this about a year ago and it was pretty fun, so I'm bringing it back. Here's how it works.

1. Choose a character from a reasonably popular book, show, movie, etc. -- something that, realistically, at least half the forum will know.
2. Pick out the GURPS traits that truly define that character and post them here.
3. Whoever guesses the character gets to put up the next one!

Don't number them -- if we need to refer to a given (unsolved) puzzle, we can do it by post#. For example, the puzzle below is #2.

Captain Hammer had never been hurt in his superheroic career even while doing things like standing in front of onrushing vehicles. If anything DR 50 is an underestimate.

Just enough to completely ignore gunfire, getting hit by vehicles, etc., and yet to get seriously hurt from, say, an exploding death ray.

Okay, lessee. It's quiet difficult coming up with someone who'd be a challenge but is neither impossible nor obscure, so I'll err on the side of way too easy:

Advantages:
Contact Group (Law Enforcement)
Serendipity (Focused -20%)

Perks:
Hyper-specialization
Standard Operating Procedure (Minimizing forensic evidence)

Disadvantages:
Callous
Compulsive Behavior (Murder)
Dependents
Pacifism (Cannot Harm Innocents)
Secret (Death or Imprisonment)

Skills:
Criminology, 12
Forensics, 14

Of course, when I win another turn I'll crank up the difficulty nob a little.
Your turn Incard.
