Personality: Chesnu is first and foremost a hero. Or at least he has some of the qualities of one. He’s scared at times but he’ll still take action, and that just makes him courageous. He’ll jump head first into danger, no matter how large the threat. That being said, he is a wise-cracking, sarcastic, rather corny yet still a bit of a cocky and arrogant character. He's already guaranteed himself that he will be number one hero already though he has yet to actually stop a large, truly threatening villain. He also often ends up taking on more than the can handle, just to prove how great he can be or, rather, how great he is as a hero. Thanks to this mindset, no matter where he goes, he feels the need to flamboyantly introduce himself and announce that he has entered the room. His friends absolutely hate this about him and are often embarrassed when he does this but they stick by his side anyway most likely due to his loyal and honorable nature.
Chesnu isn’t one to play dirty like throwing pocket sand, biting or spitting in someone’s eye. Well, at least not on his own accord. If the situation calls for it, like, say, a cheating opponent just won't play clean and it will soon enough cost his life or someone else’s or if he is trapped in a tough situation where his opponent is vastly more powerful and lives are on the line, he’ll invest in more sneaky and dirty tactics like jumping someone but in a straight up one versus one fight, he doesn't usually indulge in such pettiness. Speaking of avoiding pettiness, once you’ve made a bond with Chesnu, don't hold your breath waiting for him to betray or desert you. He ALWAYS sticks by those who would stick by him, no matter the cost.
A lesser-known aspect of his personality though is that he’s actually a bit of a combat genius. He's been shown to be able to hold his own in a fight by using not only tribal fighting moves but the abstract over the top movements he sees in Pro Wrestling matches and Martial Arts Manga actually work out for him too.

Starting Planet: Earth
Chesnu is a bit tall for his age, standing at 5’7 and weighing in at 145 pounds. He has chocolate brown skin and jet black hair in a spiky style with one short bang hanging down across his face. His eyes are a shocking sky blue, most likely a mutation, and his body is toned and shredded more than bulky and buff. This is because in a lot of the comics he's read, the teenage male superheroes tend to be leaner than jacked like their adult superhero mentors who look supernaturally muscular. It also helps with being mobile in battle (which is an incorrect assumption though he has yet to encounter something that proves otherwise).
Casually he can often be found wearing a black hoodie with a blue t-shirt and black sweatpants along with some black and blue strap boots, or something equally casual and, of course, brown contacts to "mask" his true identity as Power Boy (his superhero alter ego). Very rarely does he dress in his village's traditional uniform which consists of a sash with a distinct animal pattern covering the torso, brown cuffed pants, sandals, and tribal makeup markings. He will dress up if it is an important occasion, unlike his people who dress up like this every day. Finally, his equivalent of a Martial Arts Gi or Saiyan Armor, Chesnu has his super suit. This is a blue and black skin-tight suit, complete with black and blue fingerless gloves, black and blue boots and a blue belt, on it a square, gray belt buckle with a red button in the center.
Despite his flamboyant personality, Chesnu actually comes from rather humble beginnings. He is part of what is known as the 'Denim' tribe, a forest-born tribal society similar to that of the Karinga who reside at the bottom of Korin's Tower. He was born on a stormy night, in a torch-lit hut rather than a nice hospital. His father, the village chief, Pisacho was more than excited to finally have a son but as soon as Chesnu first opened his eyes, his mother, Maca, realized there was something wrong. Rather than being met with the normal brown, black, or hazel eye color usually seen in the Denim tribe, she was instead met with a shocking blue eye color, same color as the lightning that was streaking through the clouds of the storm overhead.
The first theory was that Maca had cheated of the chief with some outsider but Chesnu’s obvious resemblance to his father was undeniable. It was most likely just a simple genetic mutation but the people of the Denim tribe were a traditional people and they believed that things like genetic mutations were a result of the intervention of one of the 10 Denim Gods in the process. Coincidentally, Chesnu was born in a lightning storm and his eyes were the color of that lightning so, of course, it was believed that Chesnu had been ‘chosen’ by the Denim God of the Sky, Tzunderoun, to be the champion of the Denim people, and he was raised accordingly.
First and foremost Chesnu was trained to be a warrior and went through the same training regiment that older tribal warriors would undergo, however, Chesnu was only 6 years old. Along with this, he was also taught ki properties and manipulation, several survival skills and even various political and economic techniques that would help him when he became the chief of the Denim Tribe after his dad passes on. Now, basic education was something that the Denim could not provide so like all the Denim children, he was allowed to go to school outside of town. But, unlike the other Denim children, Chesnu could not resist the media and all around culture of the modern world. Hovering machines rather than horse-driven carts? Giant buildings NOT made of straw, wood or stone? And the clothes people wore…they were so colorful and eye-catching, they put animal skin pattern sashes to complete shame.
Chesnu couldn't help but brag about how much better modern life was compared to the everyday tribal life of the Denims. The other Denim children were, of course, enthralled by his tales of the outside world but the adults, and more importantly his father, were all very distasteful of what Chesnu had experienced in the outside world in such a short time. But Chesnu began to stop caring about what the adults thought regarding his decision to continue to associate with the outsiders of the Denim tribe. The outside world was shaping him in what seemed like a bad way, but actually, one of the most impactful influences of all came from the outside world and, and that influence was comic books.
These colorful action-packed paper booklets featuring abnormally jacked and inhumanly shaped men and women in spandex saving the world were what cleared and strengthened Chesnu's moral compass and confirmed his overall good nature. Though, he may have taken his good-natured feelings a bit too far when he went on his first outing as Power Boy. In this prototype suit, it was simply his hoodie but he had his hood on. A simple and stupid disguise but it was enough considering that all he was doing was taking out a group of bandits quickly and swiftly, which he succeeded at. When all was said and done, he fled the scene as the police arrived. Contrary to Chesnu's belief, though, his identity was not kept secret. Two classmates of his witnessed his transition from Chesnu to 'Power Boy'.
A boy named Tofoo, a kid trained in the martial arts and Sofai, an academic genius and top of her class. These two were Chesnu's first friends of the outside world, though not of his own accord. He really only started to hang out with them because they knew of his secret but to this day he doesn't regret it one bit due to how much they have taught him and how much they have helped them as friends and how they have helped shape the Power Boy of today. But no matter how many times he pitched these experiences to his father, he disagreed and just refused to understand why Chesnu had begun to make such a connection.
It was because of this that Chesnu had held himself back from truly playing the role of Hero. But when the strange tree started sucking the life out of the planet and a strange otherworldly being had begun to destroy and terrorize multiple cities, Chesnu decided it was time for him to cast aside the opinions of his father and protect not only his tribal people but all of those in dire need of help, no matter where they are from or their familial background. The Denim are good people but they lacked modern practices that would allow for true leadership.

The gunshots exchanged between police officers and the criminals robbing the local bank rang throughout the area. A police officer was pinned behind a car, the other side riddled with bullet holes. "We're taking heavy fire! Requesting assistance in front of the central bank!", the officer screamed into his walkie-talkie. Immediately after doing this he swirled around, gun in hand and shot at the criminals who had yet to cease fire.
A pale, skinny man who was responsible for most of the trouble laughed maniacally as he continued to reign fire among the police men that had shown up. "This is pointless! You should just let us go, or we'll just walk away with a few bodies on top of the money we've already stolen!". The murderous criminal licked his lips as he began to laugh once again, his hand still on the trigger.
Meanwhile, in the skies above, Chesnu flew above the clouds, his hands extended outwards, both fists clutched. Currently, he was dressed in his black and blue super suit, streaking above the clouds at a casual pace. Suddenly, his concentration was broken by the loud shriek in his ear from Sofai, one of his first friends in the outside world. "Chesnu! Where are you!?!? There's a robbery going on in West City, and I'm pretty sure they need "Power Boy" NOW!!" The dark-skinned boy groaned and shook his head, holding his ear before pressing the communicator in his ear. "Alright, alright!! Stop yelling at me! I'm on my way!", the boy yelled back in an equal tone. "I swear, you're more passionate about this than I am sometimes..."
With that, Chesnu barrel rolled off his previous course and flew beneath the clouds before shooting off to West City at full speed, still flying in classic superhero position. When he arrived at his destination, though, he did not stop flying. Instead, he continued to fly and snatched the gun right out of the hands of the scrawny "leader" of the criminal crew who had seized his laughter when this occurred. "SNATCHIES!!", Chesnu yelled as he breezed by faster than the human eye, as he finally came to a stop well beyond the endangered area before he shot straight into the air. The gunfire stopped as everyone, EVERYONE, looked on, not in awe but in utter confusion, silence covering the space. "Did he just say...'snatchies'?", the officer who had requested back up earlier whispered to the cadet next to him, the cadet who nodded in turn before a grin began to overtake his face.
Just then, the sound of crackling began to echo around the area as Chesnu head towards the ground at relatively high speeds before slamming into the pavement, executing the famous 'superhero landing'. When the dust his landing had caused to rise split and drifted away, it would reveal the future tribe chief to be on one knee, his right fist buried in the leftover of the pavement, his left hand holding the taken gun. Slowly, Chesnu rose to his feet and cracked his neck. He then rose the gun he was holding by the barrel straight towards the criminals before he opened his mouth and spoke. "...Hi!", he said happily, the corners of his mouth tugging upward, forming a genuine smile on his face. However, his next actions didn't match his expressions at all as he snapped the gun in half with his two hands. This sudden motion caused a few witnesses to jump before suddenly, Chesnu disappeared from human eyesight, leaving the broken gun on the floor.
Everyone outside remained silent before the bony master of the crime trio that had been causing so much trouble unnecessarily shouted to his band of merry men, "BACK INSIDE THE BANK!! WE'LL BE SAFE IN THERE!!" His two goons nodded without hesitation and scurried inside the bank. Little did they know that the great Power Boy was already in the bank waiting for them. The dark skinned boy leaned against the wall of the recently robbed vault and spoke over the comm that he had in his ear. "Ya hear that? What did I tell you two, they're gonna make some unreasonably stupid decision like running back into the bank! Tofoo, you owe me a solid 500 zeni by now, dude." Static interrupted the communications for a moment before Tofoo began to speak. "I'm...not going to pay you 500 zeni. You know that, right? We never even shook on it.", the purple haired friend of Chesnu responded. Chesnu began to frown before he jokingly said, "...I hate you."
The sound of footsteps entered the vault soon enough. Chesnu bounced of the wall, walking slowly to the center of the room before the taller, more jacked member of the trio walked backward at a slowed pace, gun aimed at the doorway, his sight aimed that way too. Eventually, he bumped into Chesnu who didn't budge despite the man being of a much larger stature. "Watch it, man, I just had this suit washed!" An obvious joke but instead of being met with laughter, the dark skin boy was instead met with a gun barrel. "Wow, okay. If the joke wasn't funny to you, you could've just told me." With no hesitation, the crook roared and pulled the trigger, firing endless gunshots at Chesnu point-blank all of which Chesnu evaded with relative ease before grabbing the gun barrel and bending it out of shape and pointing it back at the goon.
The boy sighed before speaking again, "Enough with the gunsho--." A fist interrupted his sentence but once again, Chesnu took the full force of the hit without budging. "I just bent your gun and snapped your leader's weapon in half outside, why would a punch work any better, hm?" Vanishing from sight again, Chesnu reappeared behind the gargantuan goon and wrapped his arms around the man's torso before lifting him into the air and executing a mean german suplex, knocking him out. The dark skin boy rolled into recovery, energetically popping onto his feet. "One down, two to go!"
"It took you that long to take down one? We've seen you in action, you know, we know you're faster than that. Who are you showing off for?", Sofai buzzed in the hero's ear.
"I'm not showing off! Just making this a bit fun.", Chesnu replied, pressing the commlink in his ear to open his channel.
"He's totally showing off. Maybe he's showing off for you, Sofai.", Tofoo chimed in.
"Well, he better just get it over with, then. I mean, I can hear the action through his comms but it's not like I'm actually there to see anyway, so there's no point."
"Oh my--I'm not showing off, okay!?", the chocolate-colored child groaned in a slightly annoyed tone. "You know what, fine. I'll get this over with." With that, he zipped away, locking on to the other weak ki signatures in the bank. When he found one, he burst through the metal doors the smallest lawbreaker was hiding behind, and before the mini miscreant had the chance to fire a shot, Chesnu blitzed the mini miscreant and backhanded him with a closed fist, sending him flying into the wall of the room.
Speaking of walls, turns out the last thief was in the next room. Chenu raised his hand to the wall before unleashing a ki blast that blew the wall apart. When he stepped into the next room, laughter ensued, the source being the scrawny front-runner of criminals who was backing away from the kid as Chesnu walked closer. "You know, not many people laugh when they're about to receive a fresh serving of justice.", the boy began to speak before looking up as he just remembered "Well, except for this one clown dude with green hair...he looks kinda like you, actually." The laughing did not seize, however, as the man continued to talk. "You don't understand what you're getting into, boy! This is bigger than you think! THIS IS SOME INTERPLANETARY CONFLICT SHIT, KID!! THIS ROBBERY WAS JUST A SMALL PART OF A BIGGER JOB!!"
"...Honestly, we've been losing so many lives recently, here, on Earth thanks to conflicts like that." The youth zipped behind the skinny man. "About time we start doing some interplanetary cooperation shit rather than conflict, huh?" Chesnu was simply met with yet another maniacal chuckle. "All you've done is paint a target on your chest!! They're eyeing you up now lad. Yer all theirs...", the man commented as he loudly licked his lips. Disgust overtook Chesnu's face as he formed a twisted frown. "Dude, I'm 15, chill out." And with that, Chesnu swiftly struck the crook on the side of his head, knocking him unconscious.
Soon after, Chesnu came out of the bank carrying all three delinquents slung over his back before he tossed them to the police. "Special delivery from your friendly neighborhood Power Boy! Catch you on the flipside!", Chesnu said casually, aiming a finger gun and winking before he shot straight up into the sky, leaving the scene.
The police squad captain followed Chesnu with his eyes as he disappeared into the sky and then muttered to himself, "...Power...Boy?"
