Family: Adeline Kane - Ex-wife Grant Wilson - Son (deceased?) Joseph 'Jericho' Wilson - Son Rose Wilson - Daughter
PERSONALITY Slade Wilson is a manipulator who doesn't like to sit idly by and watch things unfurl on their own; he likes to insert himself where he sees fit and on his own terms. He was once a hired mercenary, but his days of taking orders were long behind him and he has an independent streak. He still takes jobs, but on his own terms. He decides who gets to die and when. Therefore he doesn't work for anyone but himself, but in making partnerships or alliances, he likes to emphasize that they work for him. Nothing exemplifies this will to dominate over others than making his apprentice call him 'Master'.
That is not to say he cannot bend to another's whims when the situation calls for it; usually in extreme cases of necessity. This he considers as striking a bargain, and he does not take kindly when others back out of their end of the deal. When making them himself, one could expect that he follows through unless it's too jeopardizing, and even then he'll find some clever loophole to justify it. One should take his threats very seriously; he never bluffs.
However, where he draws the line can be quite fuzzy. He has no problems endangering and hurting those he considers pawns in his goals, but when it came to Robin 'infecting' himself with nanobots, rather than taking the opportunity to end all the Titans there, he chose to free them all. This could be simply because he prioritizes the goal of getting Robin to be his apprentice over any anhialation of the Titans. If Robin were to die, he would lose in his game, and Slade Wilson hates to lose. He fashions himself alike to the young leader in this way, that they both have a penchant for winning, a thrill from risky situations, and an obsession to reach their goals.
He certainly seems more invested in moulding young teens than making partnerships with adults. It may be the manipulator in him that he can take advantage of their youth and insecurities, whereas adult villains tend to know who they are and what they're all about. It may be that he wants to fashion a successor simply because of his own whims, but does not want to include his actual family due to a certain attachment that would get in the way. Really, it's a bit of both and more--he has many, mostly selfish reasons for wanting an apprentice.
As a villain himself he prefers the shadows to the spotlight. He would rather control things behind the scenes and keep his opponents guessing. He is not too proud to disappear once his advantage is lost, and often hides behind an army of Sladebots. He does not share or boast his plans. He seems to delight in keeping others in the dark. He keeps calm while saying what he knows will frustrate the other person; making them lose their temper while he remains seemingly untouchable. His anger will surface, usually in the face of stubborn disobedience, and worse still betrayal. That's when he can go from toying to lethal.
POWERS/SKILLS Enhanced Physicality - His reflexes, speed, endurance, and stamina are all at their optimal level and beyond. This is the utmost upperlimit of physical performance for a 6"4' man of his weight and build. He would out-perform anyone else at the gym, and in lab-tests of performance he'd be in the 100- 120th percentile. He's a statistical outlier.
Expert-Level Martial Artist - Even before the serum, Adeline Kane had scouted him as the most capable combatant and trained him in guerrilla warfare. He took to the art with obsessive vigour and trained hard to intergrate every move into himself. His expertise is in Boxing, Jujitsu, Karate, and Ninjitsu (yes, he is like a ninja).
Advanced Weapon Handling - He is a highly trained swordsman and gunman, though he's withheld from using them as of late.
The World's Greatest Tactician - He calculates the moves of an opponent to remain one step ahead, even rivalling Batman in this regard. He not only problem solves for the best solution, but for many possible outcomes. What makes him a great manipulator is his ability to memorize and use a person's mannerisms against them, which shows that he takes multiple factors in considering his success.
Physical Enhancements and Altered Physiology - The efficiency of every aspect of him has been upgraded, allowing the enhanced performance. The most notable would be his enhanced strength, which has harded his muscles and fortified them to the point where he could press a metric ton. He could transfer this strength in many aspects, such as the force behind a punch or knocking a door down with ease.
Enhanced Intellect - It was not only his body that was altered, but his mind has increased in efficiency as well. His frontal lobe works faster, and regions of his brain have upped their neural network. This is why his problem-solving is top-tier. Unfortunately, a reinforced memory makes him hold one heck of a grudge.
Regeneration - His body can recover and repair itself, provided there are enough cells to do so. When his eye was shot too much of it was lost to be repaired. It is also that certain parts of his body are easier regenerated than others. Skin and outer limbs are easiest, and then as things go inward it gets harder.
Poison Resistance - As part of his regeneartion and enhanced physiology, his immune system is hyper-efficient in that it will quickly eliminate harmful substances from his body.
Decreased Aging - Slade does age, but at a far slower rate. This means that despite being chronologically 50, his physical age is twenty to thirty years younger.
Gadgets: Bo staff, a small army of slade bots, the occasional flash grenade. Ah, but the slade-bots require further explanation.There are three different types.
The most common is the foot soldier, identified by looking like a well-built male with a black mask that has an orange circle in the middle of its face. They are highly agile and equipped with blasters-guns and jets on their feet for short distance hovering. However, they are not the most capable fighters individually and so their real strength comes in their numbers.
The second type are the less frequently used heavy hitters who are more robotic in appearance, white with pincher-claws for 'hands' and are generally brute force. They are useful against civilains, law enforcement, and heroes without superhuman capabilities.
The last type is the true 'Slade Bot' or rather a robot replica. There will only be one on the scene if used, and it is the one type that requires explicit control from its user. The others are artificial intelligence with programs designed to carry out commands and respond to combat scenarios; this one is controlled by the man himself and is the only one that has a voice-box. It is designed to look like Slade, and to be able to replicate his movements in real-time.
WEAKNESSES A Matter of Wanting - Obsessively following after his goals is not always the most productive of enterprises. If one can find a way to deny him of what he wants, it may force his hand. It's almost a matter of desire over knowledge; even if he knows better, he may act in favour of another party.
Grating Arrogance - Maybe his apprentices would like him more if he wasn't so condescending. He speaks with a sickly sweet delight but his words aren't honeyed promises; his constant domineering persona doesn't win him a lot of friends. His arrogance had also put his son in danger, and cost him the love of his life. Because he feels so assured in himself, he will--against better judgement--take riskier options.
Enhanced but not Invulnerable - Slade will still sustain injuries, and he can and did die. His serum-enhanced body offers some protection against tough injuries but the greater the force, the greater the damage, the harder to recover. He is still susceptible to all that humans are, but to a lesser degree. He also still feels pain, and that's one enhanced sense he's not glad to have.
Only This Super Fine Body - Slade Wilson is an experiment in human genetics, not a metahuman with some awesome offensive powers. The scope of his damage is in arm's length; anything else must be carefully planned and planted. Even Slade bots are mechanical in nature, and should for any reason parts be compromised or dismantled there goes that addition. When Trigon was defeated, his connection to demonic and mystical forces ended.
HISTORY In the 60s, sixteen year old Slade Wilson enrolled to be a soldier fighting in the Vietnam war. He possessed great aptitude and was quickly recognized as being the most capable soldier of his rank. This was how he caught the attention of what would be his greatest love, Adeline Kane. She taught him guerrilla warefare privately and their relationship blossomed, as did his prowess as a fighter. True to his potential, the driven young man absorbed everything he learned from war, and he rose through the ranks. Six months after he made Lieutenant Colonel, he and Adeline got married. He was in Vietnam when Adeline gave birth to Grant.
Always in pursuit to better himself for combat, Slade volunteered himself up for a promising medical experiment that was supposed to help him resist truth serums. It seemingly went terribly wrong when he fell into a coma, but after some time he awoke and it had gone above and beyond its intended purpose. Slade had gained enhancements that put him just beyond human limitations. However, with these changes he was unable to get back into the Army.
A wife, two sons, and a bang-up body weren't enough to keep Slade Wilson satisfied. He took a job as a safari hunter, making frequent trips to Africa and back. He became world-famous and people paid handsomely for his work. Still, even his wife could sense he was feeling unfulfilled. The solution to his problem came in the form of mercenary work. In travelling to Africa, his path crossed with the League of Assassins. They knew of his experiment's results, and opened the door for him to become one of the most sought-after assassin's of the decade. His alias was Deathstroke the Terminator.
During one of his assignments he met and connected with Lillian Worth, an oriental clan princess who needed rescuing. That he did, and they grew close enough that he had an affair with her whenever their paths would meet. One path-crossing involved getting her pregnant with Rose, but he wouldn't find that out until later since she decided to hide the fact from him. Even then, it would be something that his butler Wintergreen would take the initiative for.
The seperation of work and home was shattered when a group of mercenaries broke into his home and kidnapped Joseph, his second son. That was when he told Adeline the truth about his other career and the two of them set off to save their son after he promised her that he would. They flew to Tangrier where a rival mercenary Jackal awaited them. Jackal wanted information on one of Slade's clients, but instead Slade took the risk that he could save his son before Jackal's men would kill him. It didn't pay off, because Joseph's throat was slashed and it rendered him mute. They took him to the hospital and he would survive, but Adeline was not having it. For endangering her son, she tried to kill Slade by shooting him. Instead, she was only able to destroy his right eye.
Slade refashioned himself after the event, deciding againt his Terminator alias and renouncing work for hire. Instead, he would dedicate his bitterness and need for revenge by becoming a criminal mastermind. He would decide who would live and die from then on, and only work for his own agenda. His family had become estranged to him, so he poured his wealth and work into other venues. He navigated the underground world, carefully selecting jobs that would put him in favour of certain groups. Once he established himself, the tides would turn, and he began to hire others for his purposes.
Call it compensation, but he developed the need to mentor capable young teens to reaching their potenial. The real focus on Jump City and the Titans was actually linked to his first son, Grant. Sometime during the first year of their formation, Grant had been commisioned to destroy the Teen Titans. Slade found out that it was the H.I.V.E that had put him to this work, giving his son the very same serum he had been given--but unlike his father, Grant did not survive.
For their unintended involvement, he wanted to give the Titans greif. For the H.I.V.E, he had his own plot brewing. It centered him in Jump City, where he hired from the academy and set his plans to motion. In attempting to catch their attention, one person caught his--and so it began a two-fold obsession. While killing the Titans was on his agenda, he realized that it wouldn't bring him much satisfaction. He redirected his focus on getting the young leader to be his apprentice, and plotted to use him as an instrument of the group's destruction.
His plans were set back when Robin was willing to infect himself, so he fell back and bided his time on that front, until another ripe opportunity presented itself to him in the form of Terra. Her powers were formidable, but her strength of character was not, and so he used her insecurities and planted her as a spy for him. It seemed to be his solution in breaking apart the team, but she died and took him with her.
Death did not stop him for long, as Trigon made him a servant. In return for his services Slade struck the deal that he would have his flesh and body returned to him, being completely alive again. Trigon had him in skeletal form until the task was done, however the inter-dimensional demon had no intention of upholding his end of the bargain. This enraged Slade and put him on the side of the Titans.
As he told Robin by the end of the whole debacle, that changed nothing. Repossessing his flesh and vitality again, he disappeared back into the shadows. He came across Terra in that time, but given that they had both died and reclaimed their lives, he had an odd respect for her decision to retreat into normalacy. Perhaps he did feel some affection for his young apprentice after all. Or, was it more convenient if Terra remained un-allied with the Titans, given she had killed him once before?

The roleplay takes place after the series end of the original Teen Titans animated show, but does not include the movie Trouble in Tokyo. Since then Robin has been on something of a recruiting spree, and many new young heroes have found themselves a home in Jump City as well as Titan Tower.
