The Huntsman is a tall, muscular man in his middle years with brown hair and a pair of horns. His eye glow with a greenish light some what more intense than the same greenish nimbus that surrounds him. He is generally bare chested and carries a quiver full of arrows with a long bow. For close up and personal, he has a Great Sword.
The Huntsman of the Black Forest is Legend and a Germanic version of the Celt Wild Hunt which Ghost Archer now leads. As such, the two have a definite rivalry and it is not uncommon for the Archer to make occasional forays into Germany if the Huntsman begins to hunt once again. Sadly this will usually end with the deaths of several gifted beings before it makes the news and awakens Archer's interest. Now, for nearly 40 years, everytime the Huntsman appears, Archer will turn the hunter into the hunted. So far Archer has been successful in his efforts to drive the Huntsman back into the Nether Realm for an extended stay. As the Huntsman is an immortal being, Archer has not been able to do more the exile him for a few years at a time. The only thing preventing the Huntsman from hunting Archer full time is that he seems to be limited to operating within the historic lands of Germany.
The hounds range ahead to surround the prey and, if possible, drive the prey to the Huntsman. If the prey flies, the Huntsman and the Hounds can as well. If the prey boards a vehicle the Huntsman and Hounds can keep up with anything moving 90 mph or less. If the prey's speed outstrips the Huntsman and Hounds they will be noted by the Huntsman and a future encounter will be formulate to include measures to counter. The Huntsman will use innocents against a prey if that prey falls on the side of Good. Women/children will be used against male prey while children will be used against female prey. In all cases pack tactics are common. In all cases, the Hounds are use to harass and hinder the prey with the Huntsman delivering the final stroke.
The Huntsman exists only for the hunt. It is all he is concerned with. He is driven to find and challenge the most powerful beings possible.
The Huntsman is an occasional challenge to any traveling in Europe and can be a serious threat to the unaware.
My version of the Huntsman owes a lot to the published version from European Enemies by William Tracy. For example, characteristics. I didn't change a thing there other than a mathematical error of 4 points. The powers, however ... some remain if only in concept. His weapons are no longer physical but Special Effects. Damage Resistance remains unchanged but Desolidification was changed. It is now an Unconscous power that allows the Huntsman to pass through objects to reach his prey but provides no protection. The Flight was change to Running but with the ability to use the Running as Flight if the prey can fly. I also modified the Extra-Dimensional Travel to include the Hounds. I dropped the Mind Scan in favor of a Detect that will allow the Huntsman to find the most powerful being in his range to hunt. I dropped the Find Weakness and reduced the Life Support ... meaning he has to eat and sleep and breathe now. I added a few skills that seemed appropriate and necessary then altered the Disadvantages quite a bit. He is only able to 'exist' on Earth during the night and automatically returns to the Nether Realm at sunrise.
