Role-Playing Notes:
Air-Raid Siren is very much a modern-day air pirate who basically joined her captives to relieve her own boredom. While some may attribute her activities to Stockholm Syndrome or brainwashing, in many ways she has always been a sociopath; the attack on her cruise liner merely gave her an opportunity to be herself. She occasionally flirts with those she finds physically attractive, regardless of gender, although to her it is equal parts amusement and manipulation. While she enjoys the thrill of danger the life of a sky pirate brings, she isn't reckless, and always has an angle.

She still enjoys the finer things in life, and has a well-stocked wine cellar in her Madripoor domicile.

Design Notes:
1. Her "Wide Angle Attack" is meant to be a cone doing 6d crushing damage and an effective 24d knockback (or 6d crushing with quadruple knockback). If there's a better way to handle it than 6d cr dbk with linked 6d cr dbk nw, I'm open to suggestions.

DUGAN, TIMOTHY "DUM DUM"

Real Name: Timothy Dugan.
Occupation: Intelligence operative, former soldier.
Identity: Dugan does not use a dual identity.
Legal Status: Citizen of the United Kingdom with no known criminal record.
Other Aliases: Rob Howley (alias used while doing undercover work).
Place of Birth: Clovelly, Devon, England.
Marital Status: Single.
Known Relatives: Parents (names unrevealed).
Group Affiliation: British Secret Intelligence Service/MI6, formerly British Army.
Base of Operations: Mobile.
History: Timothy Dugan was born to a working-class family in England. To help provide for his family, he enlisted immediately out of high school in the British Army. While in the British Army, he was assigned to a NATO unit, first in Iraq and then later in Afghanistan, that was under the command of an American, Sergeant Nick Fury; because of this unit's success rate against insane odds, they became known as the Howling Commandos (see Fury, Nick). During this time, Dugan and Fury became close friends. At some point prior to this assignment, Dugan had earned the nickname "Dum Dum", presumably from his habit of carving crosses into his gun's bullets to help them expand better on a hit.

When Fury was recruited by the CIA, the rest of the Howling Commandos ended up leaving military service. Dugan was then recruited by the British Secret Intelligence Service (commonly known as MI6), the British counterpart to the CIA. Dugan was often sent overseas while posing as a British businessman in various intelligence gathering missions. It was during one of these missions in the small island nation of Madripoor that he was reunited with Fury. Neither told the other of their ties to their intelligence agencies until they were ambushed by a HYDRA cell (see HYDRA). Working together, the two managed to defeat the HYDRA cell while falling into old wartime habits.

Since then, Dugan was assigned by MI6 to assist the CIA in their operations, while under orders to report back anything of interest. These conflicting loyalties have not yet caused an issue between the two. Yet.
Age: 26.
Height: 6'.
Weight: 260 lbs.
Eyes: Green.
Hair: Red.
Uniform: None.
Strength Level: Dugan possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and muscular build who engages in moderately intensive regular exercise.
Known Superhuman Powers: None.
Other Abilities: Dugan is a skilled soldier, hand to hand combatant, and marksman with most conventional weapons. His agility is greater than a man of his bulk would appear to have, though not superhumanly so. He's also highly observant and a natural leader, having served as a second-in-command and later a field commander during wartime.
Limitations: Dugan occasionally suffers from bouts of pain from injuries taken during wartime. These injuries have not affected his performance under most circumstances, but will flare up at odd times.

Starting Spending Money: $4,000 (20% of Starting Wealth).

* Includes +2 from Craftiness.
Includes +2 from Born Soldier.
Defaulted from Observation.

Role-Playing Notes:
Dugan is a solid team player and a good commander in any group setting, taking second banana only to Fury.

Design Notes:
1. MI6/SIS Rank is derived from Social Engineering: Pulling Rank, based off using MI6/the SIS as a 20-point Patron with an assistance roll of 9 or less. It does not affect his Status.
2. Dugan was designed as a 300 pt. soldier-turned-spy at the point in Year One when he hooks back up with Fury, with an additional 40 points added in at the end of the Year due to earned XP.

Huh. I wonder if she'd have been less inclined to join the Sky Wolves if her family hadn't shelved her invention. I mean, she seems to have fairly negative qualities otherwise, but how much that contributed is an interesting question (and it's a common element in supervillain origin stories).

That's a very good question, and one which I'll leave to folks who do case studies of people like this. A clinical psychologist I am not.

An interesting take on Timothy Dugan, but reviewing him and Nick Fury, there are a few points at odds with their Marvel comic book counterparts, Whether they're worth making alterations for is another question entirely.

First, Nick Fury and Dum-Dum Dugan were first seen in Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos #1, though a later flashback story has Fury, Dugan and "Happy Sam" Sawyer (Fury's Officer Commanding during the series) first meet and work together before official U.S. involvement in WWII. The flashback story established that Timothy Aloysius "Dum-Dum" Dugan was an Irish-American from Boston, Massachusetts, who was originally employed as a circus strongman.

"Dum-Dum" was officially 2 i/c of Fury's squad with a rank of corporal. The Howlers were granted the designation of commandos as a reward for services by Prime Minister Churchill, but they were, in fact, already the American equivalent being U.S. Army Rangers.

SHIELD was a relatively small organization in the comics, though it may not seem so. As Director of Shield, Fury was referred to as Colonel Fury, which might indicate either a full colonel or a lieutenant-colonel, which in turn suggests that SHIELD was either regiment-sized (perhaps 3000 personnel) or battalion-sized (perhaps 1000 personnel).

Dum-Dum did appear to be Fury's 2 i/c in SHIELD which in turn implies a rank immediately below Fury's, so either lieutenant-colonel or major.

I know that WWII wouldn't work for your setting, but I'd consider moving Fury from being a former USMC member to a former U.S. Army Ranger.

Assuming you don't want to reconsider making Dugan American, you might want to relocate his birthplace to Boston, Lincolnshire, as homage to his original hometown, or alternatively, given his coloration and original ethnicity, making him Northern Irish. [Army of the Republic of Ireland (not the same thing as the provisional IRA) just wouldn't work for MI6].

Incidentally, neither Fury nor Dugan, should probably have a direct connection with MI6 as it is Royal Navy-based, particularly in its rank structure.

Whether you want to add Dugan's canon middle name is another judgment call, but it was canon.

A few relevant posts:
Nick Fury
Henry Peter Gyrich, director of SHIELD (as Gwenpool once told some teammates when explaining the universe's tropes: "If you had a halfway competent CIA, you wouldn't need SHIELD.")

And a Wikipedia link for the British Secret Intelligence Service, aka MI6, the British counterpart to the US CIA (incidentally, not part of Naval Intelligence, despite what the Bond films say; the wikipedia entry says nothing about it being connected to the military after WWII).

Of note: I am not letting 1940s/WWII characters stay active in the 2010s and later, except for folks that have reasons for it (notable among these are Captain America, the Red Skull (both of whom have a super-soldier serum reducing their aging), Namor and Namora (Atlanteans who live longer than most, though I may adjust them as well since Namor's 100th birthday is on Feb 2, 2022, or roughly in four months from yesterday!), and the WWII anti-heroine Claire Voyant/Black Widow, who is essentially no longer "alive" by the conventional definition.)

But short answer: a lot of the differences between Reboot!Fury and his crew and the canonical Fury and crew are intentional in an effort to not clog up the intelligence community with extraneous orgs that were created because they couldn't use the actual orgs in the Silver Age due to the Comics Code.



BTW, what is Dugan's canon counterpart's middle name? I never stumbled across it.

Assuming you mean the comic book character, it's been referenced in a few stories giving his full name as Timothy Aloysius Dugan, so Aloysius (presumably pronounced as "al-ew-ish-us").
