Explanation of the conversion: I decided not to include in this writeup Hellboy's ability to speak with the dead, other than giving him the Demonic Language skill, as this seemed to be something that would be plot (Game Master) driven in a roleplaying game. I instead gave him the Disadvantage ''Weirdness Magnet'' in part to represent how freaked out normal folks get when corpes start to talk to him and other weird stuff happens. The 1d6 Luck power represents the various occult and religious fetishes he carries in his utility belt. On a successful Luck roll, he can have just the right item to help him deal with the current situation. ''Good thing I picked up this knuckle bone of Saint Thomas from the Vatican Museum last week, I'll have to remember to thank the Pope the next time I see him.'' The 1d6 Unluck is to represent his bad luck with experimental rocket packs, satellite telephones, crumbly castle floors, etc.

History: 1944 - Near the end of WW2, Rasputin and his Nazi patrons summon a creature to ensure their victory. (Actually Rasputin had duped the Nazis into helping him in his plan to destroy the world.) However, an American commando group led by the masked hero, Torch of Liberty, and a group of British occult specialists found the demon child and christened him "Hellboy". Hellboy is then trained and raised by the U.S. government as an agent of the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. Among his friends are some other unusual agents of the B.P.R.D.: the fish-man Abe Sapiens, the pyrokinetic Liz Sherman, and Roger the Homunculus. In his long career he has teamed up with many heroes including Batman, Starman, Madman, Ghost, and Dragon.

Powers: Hellboy is a spawn of hell, a demon with the power in his right hand (not yet realized, but coveted by Rasputin as well as others) to destroy our world. He is very strong and very tough. He often talks to the dead, and vice versa (Weirdness Magnet).
