Cinematic Heroes In A Half-Shell - The Purple Dragons

It's time for more Cinematic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles goodness. The Purple Dragons have been a part of various TMNT continuities. My version is a mix of the classic street toughs with the young Foot Clan gang from the first live action TMNT movie. 

By the way, I've watched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and my son and I LOVED it! The first Bay produced TMNT movie was entertaining (to me at least), but not great. This one is fantastic!
Many of the young Purple Dragons aren't bad, just lost 

The Purple Dragons

Based in NYC, the Purple Dragons are a street gang. Originally from the of the Lower East Side, their influence has spread through out the city. They tend to recruit the young, angry, and disenfranchised  youth, providing them with family and a place to stay. Unfortunately, they are also a tool of the Foot Clan.  
but those that stay are some of humanity's worst.

For regular Purple Dragon members, I'd use the street scum from the Angel core book. For a lieutenant or veteran member, I'd go with a hardened criminal.

In my upcoming game, they are led by Sly, a charismatic man with ties to one of the cast members.

Name: Sly
Sly, charismatic leader
Motivation: Serve the Foot Clan, Lead the Purple Dragons
Critter Type: Human 
Attributes: Str 4, Dex 6, Con 4, Int 4, Per 4, Will 6
Ability Scores: Muscle 14, Combat  15, Brains 15
Life Points:  57 Drama Points: 10
Special Abilities: Attractiveness 3, Criminal, Hard to Kill 5

Name              Score    Damage               Notes
Punch                15          8                     Bash
Glock                15          12                   Bullet
Switchblade      15          8                     Slash/Stab
Dodge               15          -   

Sly is the current head of the Purple Dragon Gang. Quick-witted and talented, it didn't take him long to rise through the ranks of the Dragons. Though he seems caring and like an older brother to the new recruits, veteran Dragons know that he doesn't take kindly to failure.

  1. Glad to see a positive take on the film. This year is loaded with movies that I want to catch in the theater, so I'll know to keep this one in consideration.
