Origin:

As are the vast majority of his fellow GI Joe operatives, Big Lob is naught but a normal human in the physical sense. He has no special powers to speak of, whether resulting from mutation or occult knowledge - he fights terrorists with his guts and his skills alone.

Known Powers:

(none)

Limitations / Enhancements:

(none)

Equipment:

Grenade: Big Lob carries at least one grenade with him in the field at all times. He can fling this explosive up to one area away, to inflict rank value 30 Slashing (fragmentary) damage to everyone within the sector it detonates inside.

Knife: Big Lob typically has a long, machete-like blade kept in a sheath over his right hip. This blade is made from m.v. 40 materials, and can be used to cut through items of like m.v. (though this may take a bit), or to inflict Slashing damage in melee.

Sidearm: just about every Joe carries at least one backup piece with them in the field, and Big Lob is no exception. He can fire a single round from this weapon to inflict rank value 6 Piercing damage, or a semi-automatic burst of lead to inflict rank value 10 Piercing damage.

Quirks:

(none)

Skills:

Guns: a skill everyone picks up in the Army, Big Lob has been trained in the fine art of gunplay - even if he doesn't use it all that much. He may fire any standard, semi-automatic, or fully automatic rifle or pistol as if his Coordination was +1 RS higher in value.

Martial Arts style B: the military definitely helped Big Lob brush up on his fighting skills, but he was no slouch before enlisting. He may attempt any unarmed attack, from punches to kicks to head butts, as though his Melee was +1 RS higher than is listed above.

Military / United States: the source of his fighting talents, this skill represents Big Lob's origin (after a fashion). It also details how he can function in a fighting group effectively, and shows his inherent knowledge of the SOP.

Sports / Basketball: in case you weren't sure, Big Lob is really big on the game of basketball. He loves the sport, and practically lives it with every waking breath. He should play the game and attempt ACTs regarding knowledge of the sport at a +1 RS.

Trivia / Sports: Big Lob knows his sports - all sports. While he plays basketball by choice, the man knows just about everything there is about most professional sports - at least those of the American variety. His Intellect in such areas should be considered +1 RS.

Contacts:

Big Lob is a member of the GI Joe team. Big Lob can easily rely upon his fellows for help, particularly his good buddy Tunnel Rat. Big Lob also has several other, additional contacts, coming from both military and sports circles, that are as of yet unidentified.

Costume:

Big Lob's GI Joe field uniform is somewhat simple. It includes a red tank top / jersey with white trim and the number '14' on it, in yellow, greenish-brown trousers, gray leather boots, a brown bandoiler, a gray belt, and a brown knife sheath hanging on his right hip.

Personality:

Big Lob is smart, self-assured and nigh-fearless. Big Lob really likes sports - especially basketball. Big Lob likes to work sports commentator jargon into every conversation - if not every sentence. Big Lob also likes to refer to himself in the third person regularly.

Story:

The GI Joe operative known as Big Lob has a true love for basketball, and played it along with several other sports throughout his formative years. He had his pick of college scholarships, but enlisted in order to serve his country, as opposed to risking his health in competition.

He's shown himself to truly have what it takes in the military, however, despite his odd tendency to refer to himself in the third person, and Big Lob quickly gained the attention of the GI Joe recruiters for his sheer physical ability and nigh-fearlessness.

Once he managed to get through GI Joe's rigorous entrance exams, Big Lob was placed on the team in an official capacity, where he quickly developed a deep friendship with fellow Joe Tunnel Rat. Of course, the details of most missions he participated in are unrevealed.

They are of a primarily 'special mission' status, and as such are unknown to most of the world - if not most of his fellow GI Joe operatives. He helped the team here and there when needed, at least until the group's original incarnation was deactivated in 1994.

(Historical Divergence)

What Big Lob did after this is something of a mystery (as is most of the man's history). However, he has turned up now and then upon the Joes' reactivation, usually when the team is facing a serious threat that causes them to call in all of their reserves.

One such occasion was the second Cobra Island Civil War, during which several Joes were killed in action. Of course Big Lob also helped out during World War III, serving in Uganda with several other Joes while the team narrowly stopped Cobra from conquering the entire planet!
