Background/History: Bo Brantze is a Neo-Nazi and supporter of the Third Reich. He is one of the Reich's prized operatives, as his accelerated reflexes and speed come in very useful in completing the missions required by him by the Reich. After tangling with Yu Ominae and Oboro over the Crystal Skull, Bo changed his training regimen, doing away with the drugs he originally used to grant him superspeed and going with natural skill alone. The only problem was that Yu refused to fight fair, and ended up leaving Bo buried in a snowbank.
Personality/Motivation: Bo is an ardent support of the Nazi cause and can't wait until the Third Reich returns to its former glory by taking over the world. On the other hand, he has a somewhat honorable side to him, and won't take hostages or try to harm women or children. At one point, he gives Yoshino and Tea the chance to surrender the Holy Grail so he won't have to take it by force. Note—Bo has no liking for Oboro or Yu and wants nothing better than to destroy either of them.
Quote: "You know, if there's one thing I hate more than cowards who take hostages, its traitors!!"
Powers/Tactics: Bo's superspeed was originally the result of artificial hyper-development of his muscles (basically steroids). After his defeat by Oboro, he went into a grueling training period and got away from using drugs to enhance his abilities.
Bo's powers include the ability to run at high rates of speed, to be able to run so fast as to simply blink from place to place, and to run fast enough to be invisible to the eye. He can also create multiple visual images of himself in order to confuse an opponent. He tends to use his powers to try and attack and overwhelm a target, confusing them as to his true intent and direction of attack. He tends to use half- and full-moves, keeping his invisibility up and using his great speed to remain untouchable from incoming attacks.
Appearance: Bo is fairly tall, with a well-developed, muscular build. He has blond hair that comes to just past his ears, and a strongly featured face. Normally he is seen dressed in a black tank-top, fatigue pants and boots.
Designer's Notes: At one point, Bo boasts of having developed "awesome fighting techniques" in order to defeat Yu Ominae. The problem is, we never get to see them in action. Thus, Bo could have a variety of superspeed powers beyond what is listed here. He also could benefit from the Speedster Martial Arts style seen in The Ultimate Martial Artist.
