Dallas 'Dasher' Corbin
As are the rest of Kickers, Inc. - with the notable exception of Mr. Magnificent - Dallas is naught but a normal human, lacking any sort of physical alterations, magical schooling, or psionic disciplines with which to manifest super-human powers. Of course, he has wielded a high tech stun baton on at least one occasion, so one could say that Dallas is a high tech hero, but that is debatable.
Limitations / Enhancements:
Kevlar Uniform: while the original Kickers, Inc. uniform was simply made of ordinary fabrics, the team enhanced the nature of the thing before a particularly dangerous mission. While this simply meant augmenting the costume with a Kevlar vest, the Kickers, Inc. uniform has since been impregnated with that damage-resistant fabric, allowing it to offer rank value 6 protection from physical attacks.
Stun Baton: this device, looking something like a mace with a crackling head (at least, when it's active), was used by Dallas on his first mission outside of the United States. An essentially non-lethal device, this weapon can be used to inflict rank value 20 Concussive damage upon an opponent when Dallas strikes him or her with it... this is much preferable to him than blowing people away for real.
Martial Arts style B: like all of his fellow Kickers, Dallas is rather useful in a scrap, a good thing for a football player, to be sure. Of course, combat skills do come in handy when you lead an adventurous lifestyle. In unarmed combat, Dallas can make his attack rolls - whether they be punches, kicks, head butts, or whatever - as though his Melee trait was +1 RS higher than is listed above.
Sports / Football: like most of his fellows in Kickers, Inc., and most of his friends, in fact, Dallas has spent time as a professional football player - and a successful one, at that. As such, he can make ACT rolls applicable to this experience at a +1 RS, whether they be in regards to simple football trivia, knowledge of how to play the game, or even the actual execution of a game itself.
Since he's a member of Kickers, Inc., Dallas can naturally depend on his teammates for aid should he need to; they are Jack 'Mr. Magnificent' Magniconte, Darlene 'Doll' Magniconte, Beauford 'Brick Wall' Wohl, and Thomas 'Suicide' Smythe. Of course, Dallas is also one of the New York Smashers (as are most of the Kickers), so he can probably rely on various members of that football team in a pinch, too.
While active with Kickers, Inc., Dallas wore a costume of his own design - one he duplicated for the rest of Kickers, Inc, so the group had a definite team look when they were out adventuring. It consists of a white pair of trousers, a white, long-sleeved shirt, a blue vest with various pockets likely full of adventuring gear, a white pair of leather boots, and a white pair of leather gloves.
Dallas is something of a peacock, in that he's always fussing about his appearance one way or the other. He wears exquisitely tailored clothes, designer colognes, and thousand dollar shoes - all to impress the ladies. This causes him to react quite negatively when something messes with his fragile self-image, otherwise despoiling his 'perfect' look... which makes him a perfect target for Suicide's pranks!

Other Distinguishing Characteristics: Dallas tends to wear the classiest, yet flashiest clothing he can get his hands on.
Like his fellow Kickers, Dallas is a college graduate, though the exact nature of his high level education has yet to be revealed. Unlike Brick Wall and Doll, who use their business and finance acumen on a daily basis for the team, Dallas only seems to bring his high fashion sense to bear on adventures. Most likely, keeping his attitude in mind, he probably didn't go to college for a degree.
You see, Dallas seems to live for the glory he gains on the football field, and the adulation of his many fans. As such, he likely used his time in college for the express purpose of getting into the NFL. At any rate, he succeeded in getting a place on the New York Smashers due to his excellent performance on his college football team, and as such met up with Jack 'Mr. Magnificent' Magniconte.
Becoming good friends with the man, alongside Thomas 'Suicide' Smythe and Beauford 'Brick Wall' Wohl, Dallas hooked up with those three Smashers when they, alongside Jack's wife Darlene, formed Kickers, Inc., a paranormal investigation firm that would look into weird problems that people can't solve for themselves. Of course, Kickers, Inc. was also a vehicle for Jack to use his powers responsibly.
You see, after the White Event, Jack became super-humanly strong and as such, needed something to do with his time besides football - the game wasn't challenging after he began to outclass everybody in the league. Shortly after Kickers started looking into weird issues, Dallas did make one significant contribution to the team - he designed the group's signature blue and white look.
While the group resisted the idea of a uniform at first, they all eventually came around to it, even Suicide. At any rate, the group functioned well as a team for about a year and a half, after which time Jack had to join the Army to avoid a clandestine attempt by the CIA to recruit him into their ranks. Though deprived of their primary paranormal muscle, the remaining Kickers went on without him.
Not a quitter by any means, and enjoying the tax breaks that Kickers, Inc. provides him, Dallas likely stuck with the group after Jack left, and presumably remains a member of the group to this very day. Of course, knowing the man, he's likely done some work on the group's public image, in that the team's look is, like, so eighties. Then again, that just might be fashionable once more.
