I. BIOS:
________

Always an outsider, Remy LeBeau was shunned as a youth because of his strange,
burning-red eyes. Eventually, he realized he was a mutant -- gifted with the
ability to charge inanimate objects with explosively released biokinetic
energy. A reformed thief and charming scoundrel, the ragin'Cajun always has
a card up his sleeve!

Real name: Remy LeBeau (LeBeau means The Handsome)
Occupation: Adventurer, reformed thief 
Group affiliation: X-Men, Thieves Guild of New Orleans 
Base of operations: Mobile 
First appearance: Uncanny X-Men #266 (1990)

Height: 6'1" 
Weight: 175 lbs. 
Eye color: Burning red 
Hair color: Brown

Powers: Through physical contact, Gambit can convert an object's potential
energy into kinetic energy. 

Weapons: In Gambit's hands, even the most benign implement becomes an
exploding projectile. However,he most often relies on kinetically charged
playing cards. 

History: Orphaned at birth, Remy LeBeau spent his early years fending for
himself on the hard, cold streets of New Orleans. He survived by picking
pockets -- teaching himself the tricks of the trade through trial and error,
and eking out a modest living. However, he had yet to learn an important
lesson: restraint. Remy unknowingly tried to pick the pocket of Jean-Luc
LeBeau, head of the legendary Thieves Guild of New Orleans. 

Jean-Luc took the boy under his wing, adopting him. In time, Remy mastered the
ways of the guild -- as well as those of its chief rival, the New Orleans
Assassins Guild. To seal a peace pact between the organizations, Gambit
married Bella Donna Boudreaux, granddaughter of the assassins' patriarch. But
Bella Donna's brother, Julien, objected to the arranged union and challenged
Gambit to a duel. Severely wounding his opponent, Remy was forced to flee New
Orleans to prevent war between the guilds. 

Gambit wandered the world and plied his skills as a master thief, aided by his
mutant ability to charge objects with explosive energy. During this period, he
worked as an operative for the master geneticist known as Mr. Sinister. Unable
to control his burgeoning talents, Gambit submitted to an operation whereby
Sinister siphoned off a considerable portion of his power. In return, Gambit
helped Sinister assemble a team of super-powered assassins -- unaware his
benefactor would dispatch the Marauders to annihilate the Morlocks, an
underground community of mutant outcasts. Ignorant of the true motive behind
Sinister's machinations, Gambit even led the Marauders into the Morlock
tunnels. The outlaw team of mutant adventurers known as the X-Men were able to
help some of the Morlocks to safety, and a considerable number managed to
escape the Marauders on their own -- but the majority perished. 

Severing his ties to Sinister, Gambit partnered with the X-Men's weather
witch, Storm, who had turned to thievery after being transformed into an
amnesiac child. When Storm regained her memories and true age, she sponsored
Gambit's admission to the X-Men. Although technically married, he became
enamored of his teammate Rogue, blessed and cursed with the ability to absorb
other mutants' thoughts and abilities through skin-on-skin contact. The
feeling was mutual, but the two soulmates were condemned never to touch. After
sharing a forbidden kiss, Rogue learned Gambit's dark secret: his complicity
in the so-called "Mutant Massacre." At Rogue's request, the X-Men left Remy to
fend for himself in the frozen wasteland of Antarctica. Eventually, Gambit
rejoined the team and reconciled with Rogue.

XI. MOVE COMMENTS:
__________________

--------------------
XI.1. Special Moves:
--------------------

Name:      Insurance
Comments:  Its's not a good move at all. Gambit throws a kinetically charged
           card on the ground. If hits the opponent, he's automatically
           throwed into the air. The strength of punch tells the distance you
           throw the opponent into the air. The card explodes after a few
           seconds, or when Gambit throws other card (Insurance or Blackjack
           card). It also explodes when the opponent walk or dash over it.
           Most of times it doesn't work against flying opponents (it only
           work's when they're very close to ground). I don't use this move
           'cause nobody is so stupid to step on the card.


Name:      Blackjack
Comments:  This move is better than Insurance. Gambit throws a kinetically
           charged card that acts like a Hadou-Ken. I personaly like to use
           this move after throwing a enemy into air (special Combo 2).
           Against projectile moves, like Cyclops Opitic Blast, don't use this
           move or you'll get burned!


Name:      Surging Staff
Comments:  Maybe Gambit's best move. The strength of the punch tell how far
           the opponent goes in the air. It's a good move to start a combo or
           to make a "special Combo 2" by throwing a Blackjack. The problem in
           this move is the recovery time. If you miss the attack it'll take a
           few (and long) minutes to Gambit get back to his fighting position.
           If you're fighting a opponent that knows how to make great Combos,
           you better pray...


Name:      Air Blackjack
Comments:  This move must be done in air area (DUH!). It's a good move to use
           against flying opponents that like to stay all time in the upper
           part of the screen.


Name:      Air Blackjack 2
Comments:  Again, this move must be done in air area. It's a good move to use
           against opponents that have projectile moves, like Cyclops Optic
           Blast.

------------------
XI.2. Super Moves:
------------------

Name:      Charged Staff
Comments:  To hit the opponent with this move you should be in a two step
           distance from the opponent or closer.    


Name:      Card Trick
Comments:  To perform this move you should be close to opponent. Always do it
           with the complete SMI sequence to make it's real power.


Name:      52 Card Pickup
Comments:  Gambit's most powerfull move. Although it's not a good move. It
           takes a while to Gambit start throwing the cards. If you're
           fighting against a opponent that has projectile moves (always
           them?!), it's a good time to him use it to hit you and cancel your
           X-TREME super move. It's hard to do it, your opponent must be very
           good (time is very tricky), but it's possible.

-------------
XI.3. Combos:
-------------

First, to make Combos of anytype, you should be near your opponent. I'll just
comment the Combos that use Super Moves and Full Combos.

----------------------------------------------------  [ Ground Combos ]

Combos are very good to perform Super Moves. The only problem to preform a
Super move in a Combo is that the Super Move lost great part of his power.
Besides, when you use a Super Move on a Combo it always hit the opponent. I
like to use this kind of Combo to impress my opponents.

Name:      Super Combo 1
Comments:  The Super Move used in this Combo is Charged staff. This is the
           only Super Move that doesn't have it's power reduced. It does a
           good damage.


Name:      Super Combo 2
Comments:  My favorite Combo. Very easy to do and very powerful. Always do it
           with the complete SMI Command.


Name:      Master Combo
Comments:  I don't like Combos that use 52 Card Pickup. The power of Super
           Move in this case, reduces a lot, something near 20! And it's very
           hard to make the Super Move hit the opponent. Time in this case is
           very tricky. As I said before, it's a good way to make X-TREME
           Super Move hit the opponent and impress him.

-------------------------------------------------------  [ Air Combos ]

Name:      Master Combo
Comments:  Read above.

------------------------------------------------------  [ Full Combos ]

This Combos are funny. If you do the 11 Hit Combo, but without pressing the
first square button, it will become a 10 Hit Combo, but although the number of
hits reduce, the damage increases! I don't know why, but it increases! Check
it out. Something similiar happens in 12 Hit Combo. In this case, if you don't
press the first square button, it becomes a 11 Hit Combo, but the damage
remains the same. It doesn't increase or reduce. Still in 12 Combo Hit, if you
don't press the first square button and don't wait the second kick of R2
button hit the opponent (before the second kick hits the opponent you do a
Surging Staff), the move will become a 10 Hit Combo, but the damage now
will increase. Seems that 10 Hit Combos are stronger than 11 and 12.
