The Capital

(Click image to enlarge)

The Capital's back-story centers on his work for the U.S. government. He believes that he has spent the better part of his life as a CIA operative working on some of the country's most highly classified details. He is a master interrogator and has a keen sense for assessing any situation. He can read people just by looking at them and predicting the actions of his adversaries is second nature to him. He's spent more than a decade working as a spy and has travelled the world. He can speak any language and can adapt to any culture. In short, the Capital can blend in with any environment and manipulate any situation from the inside. To assist him in his undercover activities, the Capital possesses the ability of shape shifting, which is a necessity for a 7-foot eagle trying to blend in with the crowd.

The Capital takes the form of a giant half-man, half bird. He's roughly 7 feet tall and his wingspan is twice that. He has the head and feet of an Eagle and the arms and hands of a human. He can soar to incredible heights and possesses the ability of telescopic sight allowing him to pinpoint objects from well over 30,000 feet. He also has a sonic scream that can physically destroy objects and bad guys.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
