Liam is polite, gentle, and well-mannered. He prefers to let others speak first and avoids violence if at all possible. He is too smart for his own good, his personal life suffering as a result. He's often forgetful in small day-to-day tasks, as many academics are. His fighting prowess is next to non-existent, and he's had virtually no formal training. If in a team situation, he's best suited for a support role, where he will shine. Unfortunately, his powers do not match his mental acumen.
Liam is able to construct a large blade or up to two small blades of his choice at any given time from his own blood. He does not have to wound himself to do this. However, taking more is dangerous, and would potentially be fatal. If an enemy is bleeding, even from something as small as a scratch, it's the only opening he needs. He can tear the blood from them instead, thereby enlarging the wound and doing no damage to himself.
If the blood was his own, it automatically phases back into his system unless he is knocked unconscious. At this point, he's suffered massive blood loss and is down for the count.
Liam's second ability terrifies him, and causes him excruciating pain. He has only used it several times as a last resort. The very first was a moment of pure anger, and the agony it caused him was even worse than his regret. Through sheer concentration and this ability to manipulate the blood of wounded enemies, Liam is able to explode internal organs open, leading to the target hemorrhaging to death. Doing this will, nine times out of ten, result in Liam himself falling comatose for some time.
While he is nowhere near being an Omega-level Psiot, his powers put him on the same tier as famous fighters such as Livewire, Torque, and Stronghold.
That is, it would, if he ever stepped out of the shadows.
Liam was born in St. Petersburg to a Russian father and an Irish mother.
He graduated a Specialist in Mechanical Engineering and soon after was hired by a private firm to rebuild a facility housing aging nuclear weapons. His activation was accidental- he was not yet on the radar of the Harada Foundation, and hardly knew anything was special about his genetics. After some pills for radiation sickness, he assumed his life would go back to normal. He was wrong.
A joking shove from a friend pushed him against loose railing on a catwalk. He fell a full story down, and was impaled on a piece of metal rebar. While those who saw the accident rushed for help and stared on in horror, he summoned his first blade, a hacksaw, without thinking about what he was doing.
By the time he had cut himself free, first responders were arriving, and he still had a piece of the metal stuck inside of him. Knowing better than to take it out, since it would kill him from blood loss, toxic shock, or exposure of intestines, he begged for medical help.
As no cameras were on scene, it was written off as crowd hysteria.
