Background/History: Ricardo was born the oldest of five children. Growing up poor in Mexico City, he learned early that you had to work hard to earn your way in life. Unfortunately, he seemed to be the only one in his family that learned that lesson. From a young age, it was up to Ricardo to provide for his family and though the he resented it he felt it was his duty.

That all changed one day. A bully challenged him at work and rather than risk his job, Ricardo declined. His attacker jumped the young man as he tried to walk away. In that instant, all his anger and resentment, at his life, at his country and his family boiled over. With a surge of new strength, Ricardo threw his attacker into the sea over 50 meters away. He lost his job, but it didn't matter. Nova powers meant wealth and fortune. Ricardo joined XWF (eXtreme Warfare Federation, Nova shootfighters and wrestlers) and began making a name for himself. But as his experience with organization grew he found most of the people working for it to be questionable at best or at worst beneath contempt. Ricardo's disgust with XWF grew until he couldn't take it any longer. When Utopia approached him looking for attractive new faces for its promotional "Team Tomorrow" he jumped at the chance.

Ricardo has made a name for himself as hero and role model for Mexico, somewhat unknowingly. He still adheres to the Luchador "code" including the mask tradition. This has inspired other South American Novas (and Elite in general) to keep to that code. Ricardo has practically cut all ties with his family though. They still pester him for money, but he feels it is time for them to earn their own way and stop riding on his back. Ricardo has developed some issues with Taint unfortunately, but his easy going and friendly manner keep anyone from bothering him too much about it.

Powers/Tactics: Montoya is geared for combat. His is among the strongest of Novas, easily the equal of Geryon and extremely resistant to injury even without his Eufiber armor. Montoya's body reflexively shunts the kinetic energy from blows and impacts into momentum, allowing him to "bounce" away from attacks without harm. By similar manipulation of kinetic energy, he can fly at moderate speeds. Montoya-bernal also has a "Sixth Sense" that warns him of danger in and out of combat, usually through fortunate hunches and lucky breaks. In fact, Ricardo is just extremely lucky over all. Fortune just seems to go his way constantly sometimes in truly amazing ways. These powers combined with his superhuman reflexes and combat experience make him a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. This has given Ricardo a sense of invulnerability and he is flashy,taking chances in fights since he feels he can't be hurt. As part of his code of honor, Ricardo will not initiate lethal combat but will respond in kind. He is also reluctant to strike women, preferring to subdue and restrain them as non violently as possible.

Appearance: Ricardo's has dark, intense eyes and roguish good looks. He's large and powerfully built without being bulky. He could easily be a romantic lead if he wished and never lacks of romantic companionship. In public, he is never seen without his trademark Luchedor mask, made to match his Team Tomorrow uniform. Even out of uniform, he wears it or some variation of it and looks impressive doing it. Otherwise, Ricardo has never been one to put on airs and dresses well, but simply, going for neat appearance and comfort. Growing so powerful so fast has had it cost though. Ricardo has a series of spiny "fins" on his back, forearms and calves along with green skin.
