Profile

Once upon a time, he was the best buddy and playground defender of Steven Rogers. Then he was Captain America's sidekick, a war hero in his own right, and one of the Howling Commandos. But by the end of the war, he and Steve had both vanished into frozen wastes. Steve they found decades later and defrosted....but Buck had fallen into the hands of HYDRA, and was turned into the Winter Soldier. There was an escape, help, the succor of friends, but the construct that was Winter remained there, dormant but not destroyed. And all the while, HYDRA lay in wait for him.

Now he's their agent again, the Soldier ascendant, and a pawn in the hand of his enemies.

Description

Description:

High cheekbones, square jaw, thin lips - he's got a striking face, if not exactly a beautiful one. His skin's pale, though not unhealthily so, and his eyes are a faded blue. His age is curiously indeterminate; there's no gray in the long brown hair, no real weathering. It's more the way he holds himself, the tension lines around his mouth, between his brows. First glance says mid-twenties, but the look in his eyes says somewhere around a hundred.

He's only medium-sized, leanly muscled but not bulky. He moves heavily somehow, with a strange deliberation that gives him an almost machined quality.

He's plainly dressed in a white dress shirt, dark pants, boots, a dark gray overcoat....and a worn black leather glove on his left hand.

History

History:

There were two kids in Brooklyn, friends to the end. Playground buddies, stoopball competitors, fellow art students - through the roaring Twenties, the depths of the Depression. And then the War, and separation. Both of them patriots, but only one of them fit for active service. One shipped out to boot camp, the other left behind....if not forever.

To his surprise, Bucky actually throve in the Army. It was something real on so many fronts, a chance to confront and defy genuine evil - first in Northern Africa, then the long campaign up Italy, and finally the path to Germany and Hitler himself. His friend had reappeared - transformed, of course, but still the man he'd known inside. It was as good as war could get, until he was captured. His friend was his rescuer, but not in time to keep the Skull's scientists from experimenting on him. The immediate effects weren't clear, and he went back to fighting at his buddy's side. It was very nearly the last battle of the war, the frantic rush to keep a last experimental weapon from reaching America and the New York they loved. They were victorious....but also some of the last sacrifices, for neither returned from that desperate mission. One vanished into the frozen north....the other into the clutches of the Red Army....and then HYDRA.

Arguably, he's America's longest lost POW, for James Buchanan Barnes, the commando and would-be artist, was soon submerged beneath the layers of programming, drugs, conditioning....and what emerged from beneath the knives and needles was only the Winter Soldier, masked, deadly, and wholly obedient to his masters. Mantras to control, drugs and cryogenics to suspend his aging, a prosthesis intended to do far more than merely replace the one he'd lost in that last battle. The post-war world reduced to a strobe of confused violence, blood on his hands, names without meaning turned only to targets, but faces that refused to leave him, the dying and the dead. Questions his masters refused to answer, who, why?

There were moments of clarity, when his own name trembled on his tongue, memories that were truly his. Faces and places he was sure of. Even stretches of rebellion, fleeing away, stumbling attempts to patch together a new life as something other than a weapon. But, inevitably, the long hand reached out, and he finds himself again in their grip, frozen and waiting.

Personality

Click to expand.

Personality:

Steve was always the idealist....Buck, the pragmatist. That said, he's dog-loyal in general, and when it comes to Steven Rogers, to the death. His devotion's always been far more personal, though. Not for him the the water-pure patriotism and shining honesty of his runty little buddy. That did not, however, stop him from determining to finish the fights that Steve could never help starting, with a doggedness that dovetailed neatly with his friend's.

The difference between them was only heightened by World War II. As Steve struggled against his physical weaknesses and continued his siege on the Army's physical fitness boards, Buck went through the tough schooling of first Army training and then the campaign across north Africa. While he's never had Steven's effortless charisma and natural leadership, he's learned to be an effective leader, especially of a small unit. It also left him far more cynical about devotion to leadership and country....and willing to be violent in ways that perturbed Steve even before HYDRA got their hands on him. He was the Commandos' sniper, after all.

Winter, of course, is a whole different matter. Inasmuch as a construct has a personality, he's got all the sunny charm of a Siberian winter. HYDRA's servant is about as stubborn as the average Terminator when it comes to pursuing a target, and has pretty much no scruples at all. Innocents are so much chaff to be discarded, save as they might be useful in completing his mission.

Abilities

Click to expand.

Enhanced Physiology:
Bucky Barnes is a recipient of the Soviet version of the super serum. as such, much of his abilities have been power-boosted to near-superhuman levels, some even above that. As such, with training, he has reached the very peak of human ability in more than one area.

Infinity Formula:
A seperate serum (not the super soldier serum) that Fury gave to Barnes in order to save his life at one point. The formula itself is meant to stop Barnes' aging and keep his body in absolute perfect condition should he ever go astray or live an unhealthy lifestyle. It's fully possible that in terms of aging, Barnes has been rendered possibly immortal, though he could just be aging very very slowly. Presently unknown.

Master Marksman:
The Winter soldier is a skilled shot. Almost perfect actually. He rarely ever misses a shot, especially at long range...where he really shines as an assassin. He's so skilled he can actually shoot through someone to hit his target with perfect accuracy.

Metabolism Healing:
Barnes heals far faster than the average human. He's able to heal moderate and severe injuries within several days...though even after he suffers them, he is able to keep going. In example, he was able to heal from being shot multiple times in a single day.

Metal Arm:
Buck lost his left arm in the incident that had him captured by the Soviets...and waste not want not, they used him as a subject in experiments in Vibranium-based augmented prostheses. It's bullet-proof, literally - if he's fast enough, he can block bullets with it. It's also stronger even than his augmented physical self: he can tear the door off a car with ease, punch through plate steel, and throw a shield hard enough to knock Cap himself back a good ways. The electrical conduits that serve it as both nerves and power are vulnerable to attacks of that kind, and it does need occasional maintenance to keep it from locking up or otherwise malfunctioning.

Peak Human Agility:
Due to the super soldier serum and through strict and unforgiving training, Barnes has reached the peak in terms of physical agility that a human being can go. He can easily leap from one building to another when he's running, and can avoid attacks and bullet shots even in mid-air. He can leap up to ten feet without needing a running start.

Peak Human Endurance:
Barnes can take a licking and keep on ticking. He can withstand extreme temperatures without discomfort, hold his breath for several minutes, and work endlessly for several hours before tiring or beginning to succumb to pain or toxins.

Peak Human Reflexes:
The Winter Soldier is no joke when it comes to reaction speed...perhaps having one of the best around. He can dodge bullets from multiple gunmen at close range and even sway out of strikes from multiple opponents at the same time.

Peak Human Strength:

Barnes is physically strong, even in his own right thanks to the super soldier serum and unforgiving training. He can break through walls with a single punch and lift a man with a single hand. His feats are impressive, though nowhere near the likes of beings such as the Hulk.

Skills

Click to expand.

Drawing:
Buck, along with Steve, was an artist in training - they were in art class when Pearl Harbor was announced. He's badly out of practice, but it's still in there somewhere. It occasionally comes out as an odd urge to sketch.

Driving:
He started with the kind of vehicle training an American NCO in WW II would've had: cars, small trucks, motorcycles. When the Red Room got hold of him, they only added to it, all the way up to tanks, helicopters, smaller planes and watercraft.

Expert Tactician:
Barnes is a master at planning before he strikes, being able to outwit his opponent on a multitude of occasions. Given that most of the people he fights nowadays have incredible powers, he's gotta be smarter. THus, does he put this skill to good use quite a bit.

Master Acrobat:
Barnes is a very experienced acrobat and can easily perform acrobatic feats, such as twirling in the air when it seems unlikely, easily traversing structures that some would have trouble following. He is quite masterful of arts such as parkour and other mixed practices of leaping about.

Master Marksman:
The Winter Soldier is an extremely accurate marksman and very skilled specifically in sharpshooting and knife throwing. His accuracy is so perfect that he has shot twelve men at different locations at the same time with one bullet. It's easy when they line up."

Master Martial Artist:
The Winter Soldier is an extremely proficient practicioner of martial arts. He received combat training in WW2 and that was only bolstered by HYDRA's control and strict training to become the elite Winter Soldier. He's held his own and won against the likes of Captain America and Iron man. He's skilled in a vast multitude of disciplines, and can without a doubt stand up to even opponents who are stronger than he is. In short, his martial arts skill is equal to that of Captain America's own mastery.

Master Spy:
Being an assassin means needing to know how to blend in, sneak in, be nowhere, yet everywhere. Even as a Howling Commando, Barnes was exceptionally good at blending in to his environment. and as an assassin as the Winter Soldier, he's learned from a vast number of individuals to enhance the skill to nearly ridiculous levels. He can survive on his own, making his own bombs from scratch, and can successfully use inductive and deductive reasoning effectively.

Multilingual:
The Winter Soldier is known to be fluent in English, French, Russian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Arabic, and some dialects of Swahili.

Stealth:

Barnes is a master of stealth, and can easily get into highly secure areas without being detected.

Resources

Click to expand.

Caches:
Scattered throughout the world, though most are in major cities, Buck has caches of weapons and ammo, cash, gear, and medical supplies. Many of them are known to HYDRA, but not all.

Captain America:
While this can most certainly be used against him(see flaw), Bucky has one person he can always count on to help him: Captain America. In their most intense trials, he will always be there for Steve and Bucky knows Steve will always be there for him.

Gear:
Guns, kevlar armor, more guns, and various other equipment and weapons are at Barnes' disposal.

Identities:
He's got multiple false IDs, backstopped with the necessary documentation and database entries, stashed in various places around the globe. If he can get his hands on one, he can effectively become someone else in moments, at least in the eyes of bureaucracy.

Motorcycle:
Bucky normally travels using his customized motorcycle that can go over 100 mph.

Safehouses:

Apart from the goodies HYDRA's got sprinkled around like deadly Easter eggs, he's got places he can go to ground if needed. Though most of them are known to HYDRA, and aren't much use if he wants to avoid contact with those pulling his leash. Like the gear caches, most are in major cities, but not all.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Amnesia:
They wipe him. Nearly every time. He exists in a kind of tremulous Now, like someone with Alzheimer's. He can store memories post-wipe, but he's all too conscious of the holes and missing pieces. He doesn't know who's friend or foe, or what he might've done. It's like an awful game of whack a mole, trying to suppress the memory fragments that the wipes don't destroy but render horrifying or puzzling flashes devoid of context. The worst of them can send him into a kind of frozen near-catatonia, or fits of aimless violence.

Captain America:
Steve Rogers. Bucky's best friend in the world, and the only person he could ever count on in all situations. This man had faith in him that he could be redeemed, and was ultimately his redeemer. While Captain America can fend for himself easily, were he ever in trouble, Bucky would come to his aid regardless of what he was doing. For his best friend, he would move heaven and hell. this can easily be used against him by people with nefarious plans.

Fugitive:
Buck's wanted for his crimes - no longer a ghost in the machine, the mythical boogeyman of the Cold War era intel community. Now that they know he's real and one man, the various law enforcement agencies are out for blood. Everyone from Scotland Yard and the NYPD up to Interpol are after him, and many have him sought dead or alive.

Hydra:
The organization that made Bucky's life a living hell. When Bucky broke free of his mental enslavement to them, they lost a severe asset. As such, they would very much so like to either get him back or put him down, whichever comes first and is available at the time. They hunt him like a dog....and the problem with HYDRA is that you don't know who is and who isn't.

Programming:
No matter where he goes, the programming is still there. He's a literal Manchurian Candidate, vulnerable to anyone with the right string of words on their tongue. At the moment, there are two main phrases - the 'Longing Rusted' string activates command programming, and leaves him subservient to the orders of whoever utters the phrase. 'Soldat Sputnik' is a shutdown command: if he hears it clearly, he loses consciousness in seconds and remains out for at least several minutes.

The Arm:

While it's a neat bit of prosthetic engineering, it has its flaws. It can be locked up or damaged by electrical attacks. It's a great big HEY LOOK AT ME I'M A SUPERPOWERED ASSASSIN neon sign, if he doesn't keep it covered. And it needs maintenance ...maintenance he's not always skilled enough to perform.
