Background/History: Henry Allen "Hank" Venture is the grandson of the great Dr. Jonas Venture (a cross between Dr. Quest and Doc Savage) and the son of Rusty Venture (former boy adventurer turned adult failure) and (probably) Myra Brandish (ex OSI agent, currently insane, possibly a former American Gladiator). The more athletic and aggressive of the Venture Brothers, Hank is arguably less sane than his brother Dean. He has inherited some of his mother's physical toughness, at least compared to his brother or Rusty, and can be surprisingly useful in a fight, at least against faceless minions. Hank is a failed Boy Adventurer, though he doesn't know it.

Personality/Motivation: Upbeat, aggressive, optimistic, and about as sane as a bat on peyote, Hank Venture seems to have inherited his mother's crazy along with her physical competence. He hero worships Brock Samson, and dreams of being a tough as nails adventurer. He obeys his father and cares for his brother, but there's rebellion growing in Venturevile, and who knows when the dancing will begin!

Quote: My pants are haunted! My pants are haunted!

Powers/Tactics: Hank is surprisingly capable in combat, at least one on one with a poorly trained minion. He has his mother's basic strength (and crazy) along with some minimal training from Brock, and doesn't scare easy. Unfortunately, he's also profoundly unlucky and in no way bullet proof, and has died somewhere on the order of a dozen times. Fortunately, his father keeps his memories on record, and is able to bring him back using clone slugs.

Campaign Use: DNPC, or PC in a Venture game.

Appearance: Short blond hair, blue eyes, dresses like Fred from Scooby Doo.
