The Smoker by Inkthinker The Smoker by Inkthinker
Btech character that I was screwing about with. The pipes are made of heavy metal, and I liked the idea that he could snap the pipes closed, and then beat the shit out of people with them like they were a couple of ball-peen hammers.

In this day and age, though, can you still have a character that smokes? Even Wolverine put out his cigars... Nick Fury gave up the stogies... I don't even think J.J.J still smokes. If I used this character in a popular medium, I'd catch flak for sure.

And a fighting character who's always chimneying... he'd have lung problems, which would affect his athleticism, right? I try to keep it somewhat real... but I just liked the idea of those pipes spinning around in his fingers, trailing smoke and smackin' down fools.

What's he smokin' there? Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies.

Perhaps his smoking is like the drinking of a practitioner of Zui Quan; real users of "drunken fist" don't really drink much at all, because if you tried to perform the art's complex movements while actually inebriated, you'd kick your own ass more often than not. Perhaps the Smoker doesn't really smoke, but he'd like you to think he does. I could easily visualize a fantasy martial art form that uses clouds of smoke as a way to mask movements and disorient foes.

Plus, let's be real here: he looks completely boss with two pipes, and that matters most of all.

he's smoking a magical purple substance that increases his strengty, speed, agility, and heightens his senses. Unfortunately it heightens his eyesight a bit too much, hence the shades....

Go right ahead. Beware that his upper arm is overextended.
