Character Breakdowns

JOHN CARBON

JOHN CARBON

John Carbon was the best detective in his precinct, until a brush with destiny changed his life forever. While he was investigating some dirty cops, he discovered that the Captain he admired most was secretly a T.O.X.I.N. operative. Before he could hand over evidence to the D.A., he was attacked by Whirl Wind, General Blight's ninja enforcer. After being declared dead by some lazy doctors, he was taken in by Dr. Lambent, who helped train his natural psychic powers, and augmented him with incredible cybernetic implants. Today, Carbon leads the PsyBorgs in their quest to destroy T.O.X.I.N.

RICKY BLAZE

RICKY BLAZE

Ricky Blaze was just a down on his luck kid with nothing but a worn out laser rifle and a backpack full of dreams before he was taken in by John Carbon. Carbon could sense some psychic energy coming out of Blaze, who turned out to be an empath who can see a few seconds into the future. While his powers don't allow him to toss around T.O.X.I.N. Mercenaries like Carbon can, they do enable him to be the best crack shot with a laser pistol that the world has ever known. This, along with the fact that he's the best friend a man could ever have, make him an invaluable member of the PsyBorgs.

DEUTSCH

DEUTSCH

Deutsch is the best IT pro around. He could've gotten rich working for any major corporation, but instead decided to give back to the community. He realized he could give back by working a local school board. One day when he was filing some floppy discs, he was attacked by Insidiestor, General Blight's right hand man, who wanted info on kids in the area. Deutsch was able to protect the data, but the conflict left him paralyzed from the waist down. Today, he fights with the PSYBORGS, acting as their eyes and ears from his computer in HQ.

GENERAL BLIGHT

GENERAL BLIGHT

The best way to describe GENERAL BLIGHT would be to call him the physical embodiment of pure evil. He is the leader of the militant terrorist organization, T.O.X.I.N., and arch enemy of the PSYBORGS. He has plans for complete world domination, and will not hesitate to use or to beat down anyone who stands in his way. Perhaps there was good in him once, but not anymore.

PsyBorgs - Scene 5, Shot 4

INT. T.O.X.I.N. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT The GARAGE DOOR creeps open. Tension builds. The MERCS on the scene take cover behind crates and overturned machinery, waiting in panic for what's about to come through that door. They exchange looks of nervousness with each other. CLOSE UP of one of them taking the SAFETY OFF of his LASER SHOTGUN. The door finishes opening, but no one is on the other side. Surprised, the Mercs relax and check it out. Just when they drop their guard, RICKY BLAZE spins in to frame, and fires off a few rounds. One shot each is all it takes. [Special thanks to Russell Nielsen]

EXT. THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS - NIGHT CLOSE UP of DEUTSCH'S face as he's pummelled with SNOW and FLYING DEBRIS. CUT TO-- WIDE SHOT. Deutsch is barrelling full blast straight down the mountain on his wheelchair. There are no roads, no sidewalks, no signs of human civilization; just a lone man in a wheelchair determined to help rescue his friends. SPARKS and FIRE discharge from his wheels as he bounces down the mountain. His wheelchair holds on for dear life. [Special thanks to Russell Nielsen]

INT. T.O.X.I.N WAREHOUSE - MOMENTS LATER The bodies keep piling up. Merc after Merc keeps storming JOHN CARBON, and one by one he uses his psychic powers to throw them back. The sheer numbers keep piling up, and they become too much for him to handle. In an epic moment of glory and rage, Carbon unleashes an intense PSIONIC BLAST, sending all of the Mercs flying backwards at once. They're all knocked unconscious, none of them will be standing up any time soon. [Special thanks to Russell Nielsen]

EXT. T.O.X.I.N. WAREHOUSE - NIGHT The building goes up in fireworks. There isn't a square inch of it that's not either burning or ashes. CARBON and BLAZE calmly walk away from the ruins. DEUTSCH calmly rolls away. None of them take the time to look back at their handiwork. They don't have to; they're cool and collected. [Special thanks to Russell Nielsen]
