Fenton Blake (Agent Flyweel)
rating: 0+x

By quarkstomperquarkstomper

A small, unimpressive man in a crewcut, coke-bottle glasses and a button-down shirt. He looks like he might be an accountant, or perhaps an engineer. Actually, he works for The Agency, a super-secret spy organization.

Fenton Blake, (Code Name: Flywheel), is The Agency's chief armorer and gadgeteer; he builds the specialized weapons and spy devices that field agents depend upon. He is competent enough in the field himself, but spends most of his time in the lab building new gadgets, at the shooting range testing new weapons, or in his radio shack listening to Miles Davis and fiddling with his home-built heptaphonic hi-fi system.

  • Fenton was designed for a 1960s-era Espionage campaign, but can be easily retooled to campaigns set in other eras.
  • He is designed as a support NPC, but could easily work as a PC as well.
  • You can play up his comedic aspects by reducing his DX and his combat skills. Then again, having a nerdy little guy be unexpectedly competent in judo/marksmanship can work too.
    • As long as the NPC doesn't upstage the players
  • Yes, he is a skills monsters. Prune or augment his skills to taste.
