Merry Christmas Eve, to those of you that celebrate it! I hope you all enjoy your celebrations<3 Today is, surprisingly enough, also the first day of Hanukkah! So to those of you that celebrate that, Happy Hanukkah! I wish you all love, joy, and peace!
Now, for the final Advent Calendar entry, our one and only brother of Santa, Century! (I’m going to take the rest of the year off<3)
NAME: Charles Benton
ABILITIES: Time control (capacity to stop time for a large city for over an hour, at least), super speed, strength, flight, (let’s face it, this guy is SERIOUSLY dangerous.)
FAMILY: Kris Benton AKA Santa Clause
OCCUPATION: Leader of the South Branch Hall
HOBBIES: running an oil company (he enjoys being an oil baron–but don’t worry, he’s dragged Nico into the work and made the processing EXTREMELY eco-friendly)
LIKES: Skye, his Hall, unique and interesting capes, looking good
DISLIKES: his brother, people not knowing their place in the game (Herold), snow
BIO: The son of Santa. Yeah, Century is from the very long, very venerable, and MASSIVELY powerful Santa line. His older brother took on the mantle when his dad was going to retire almost seventy years ago. There was a trial–they were each assigned half of the planet to deliver to (only those that believed in Santa, of course), and whoever finished first would become the next Santa. Century lost. There has been a lot of speculation over the years as to whether he even really tried to win. Century HATES snow. Years of living in the middle of a “winter wonderland” had him dreaming of sun and grass and anything warm. The first thing he did after losing the competition was to move south.
He met and married a wonderful norm woman not long after moving there. They were married for a very long time–until she passed away from old age. He’s still single, now. During the time, though, he started up the South Branch Hall (with assistance from the previous Falconess). He also started up his oil company, and brought Voltdrain up from where he was living in Mexico (which led to the South Branch being the protectors of Mexico, as well). When he lost his wife, he was heartbroken, and it’s taken a pretty long time for him to recover (although, honestly, he never will, completely). He’s still not completely sure about how he feels for Skye, especially since she’s so much younger than he is, but it hasn’t stopped him from teasing her a bit^_~
Century is a well-educated business owner, but he plays up the “good ‘ole boy” routine on a regular basis to see if people will underestimate him. He helped MAKE the new photo-op game, and even let Skye “steal” one of his credit cards. He keeps it up to date, and makes sure she can buy anything she wants or needs. He does the same in one way or another for all the other villains in his territory. He’s also extremely invested in the lives of his heroes. He and Voltdrain are good friends, and he considers Voltdrain’s daughter, Jimmi, his niece. He feels most guilty about Emily winding up in the Behts’ family–it was under his direction (he thought that she would be happy with other girls to keep her company.)
He would happily adopt Sandra if the Liberty family wasn’t interested–he’s come to the conclusion that he needs to save the “at-risk” capes, or at least make sure they don’t fall through the cracks. His Hall will definitely be taking in a large group of the Cape High graduates, if given the chance. He’s already placed a claim on Vinny, Carla, Rocco, and Lance (even if he has to share Carla and Rocco with Mastermental.)
