Alvin's grandparents immigrated to the USA from Bogatá, Columbia. Even though he is second-generation American, Alvin is fluent in Spanish and has a slight Spanish accent.

Personality

Alvin is socially awkward, a bit naïve, and speaks with a lisp. He's filled with self-doubt about his role as Aspect of the Storm, partly because he's never been good at anything in his whole life, and partly because he doesn't really understand his own powers. He can be temperamental and unwilling to cooperate with people if he thinks they are ignoring him or are condescending.

Motivations

  • Protection: The character wants to protect others, particularly the innocent and the helpless.
  • Responsibility: The character is burdened by the responsibility of their powers.

Complications

History

Alvin Craney was a clerk at the Phoenix Airport weather monitoring station when Paragon killed Thunderbird. When Thunderbird died, an enormous storm-eagle appeared in the sky and Thunderbird's powers were passed to Alvin.

Alvin was raised in Phoenix by Carmen, his grandmother. He lives alone in a small apartment with his cat, Mr. Salad. Carmen watches Mr. Salad when Alvin is away.

Powers and Abilities

As Aspect of the Storm, Alvin has direct control over the atmosphere over an enormous area. He can control the winds, make it rain or snow, summon lightning, and make the air hot or cold.
