Stormtiger is a member of Empire Eighty-Eight. After the Empire's splintering, he joins Hookwolf's "Fenrir's Chosen".


Appearance[edit | edit source]

Stormtiger was pale, tall, and muscle-bound.

For his costume, Stormtiger only wears loose-fitting pants, accented with chains and a white/pale blue tiger mask.[1][2]

Abilities and Powers[edit | edit source]

An aerokinetic, Stormtiger has developed several unique applications for his abilities. His signature technique is to condense air into hard ‘claws’ that he can use for CQC or to launch as projectiles; he can then release the condensed air in explosive blasts.[1] The more time he has to draw air into the claws, the larger the resulting explosion.[3][4]

Another of Stormtiger's techniques involves drawing sounds and smells towards himself, effectively enhancing his senses.[5][1] His ability to sense air currents helped him to detect incoming projectiles.[6]

Stormtiger could also generate simple blasts of wind.[7] He could deflect projectiles, including bullets, through his manipulation of air currents.[6][8]

He could also use his aerokinesis to achieve limited flight, essentially floating in place.[9]

Equipment[edit | edit source]

At one point, his leg was injured and ended up healing incorrectly, requiring a cast.[4]

History[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Stormtiger knew Hookwolf back when they were both un-powered pit fighters and then parahuman pit fighters.[10]

Story Start[edit | edit source]

His identity was revealed along with the rest of Empire Eighty-Eight.[11]

Staged an ambush on the police barricade during the rampage caused by the E88's identities being revealed.[12]

Toyed with Skitter and Grue before being blinded and needing to escape.[3]

Post-Leviathan[edit | edit source]

Was able to interfere with Shatterbird's powers when she came to tell Hookwolf of his nomination.[4]

Post-Slaughterhouse Nine[edit | edit source]

Would later interfere with Accord as part of Menja's new mobile Chosen.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During World War II the Nazis fielded a heavy infantry support tank informally referred to as a Sturmtiger, literally "Assault Tiger." It is likely this is where his name comes from.

References[edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Stormtiger – A contestant in the same underground fighting tournaments as Hookwolf, Stormtiger has aerokinesis, the ability to manipulate the air around him. He has two known special techniques: the ability to compress air into claw shaped forms around his hands and detonate it explosively, and the ability to use his aerokinesis to carry scents to his nose, giving him the ability to sniff out opponents. Goes shirtless, with loose fitting pants and chains, and a white tiger mask. - Cast (in depth)
  2. There was a pale, tall man with the sort of muscle-heavy build you only saw on cons and bodybuilders. He wore black slacks that were in tatters around his feet, had chains wrapped around his forearms, hands and calves, and a blue-white tiger mask. - Buzz 7.7

  4. 4.0 4.1 4.2 Interlude 11e
  5. “Stormtiger, find the others of her group.” Hookwolf snarled, apparently not considering my words worth responding to.

    “Can’t,” Stormtiger spoke, from where he stood above me. “Not smelling them.”

    “You smelled her.”

    “And I smelled the two uniforms from the ambulance. Other one’s bleeding, sitting near the ambulance somewhere over there. Darkness boy isn’t around anymore or I’d be able to smell him.”

    [...]

    “Gun oil,” Stormtiger called out, whipping around to face Grue. “I smell gun oil.” - Excerpt from Buzz 7.8
  6. 6.0 6.1 Stormtiger could deflect projectiles by sensing and adjusting air currents. With the right timing, so her shots came out of the shadow state as they arrived to make contact with him? Maybe. But he was engaged in a fist fight with Assault, and she’d be risking tagging the hero. - Excerpt from Sentinel 9.6
  7. Stormtiger raised one hand in the direction he’d come and created a blast of wind to clear a path through Grue’s darkness and reveal Hookwolf and Cricket. - Buzz 7.8
  8. Stormtiger raised one arm as if to protect himself, but the bullets were already veering off before they could hit him, leaving a trio of hazy trails in the air where they had turned. - Buzz 7.8
  9. Plague 12.2
  10. Stormtiger – A white supremacist and one of Hookwolf’s subordinates, once a member of parahuman fighting rings. Wears loose-fitting pants and a white tiger mask. An aerokinetic, his techniques include drawing sounds and smells to himself, or condensing air into hard ‘claws’ that he then releases in explosive blasts. - Cast (spoiler free)
  11. The images displayed on the screen were the same as the ones I had seen in the email, earlier. Max Anders and Kaiser. Kayden Anders and Purity. The blondes as Fenja and Menja. The broadcast flickered through all of them: Hookwolf, Krieg, Night, Fog, Stormtiger, Othala, Cricket, Rune, Victor, Alabaster, the Crusader… - Excerpt from Buzz 7.6
