Agent Dossier: Kestrel
Specializations: Explosives/Demolition, Smith/Armorer, Trainer
Story Synopsis: Agent Kestrel is a rogue robot that, prior to being repurposed for The Discord Sect, was lowkey a mixed martial arts fighter in underground fighting. His hard drive is mostly shot when Thane found him wandering the streets of present day New York City, which means that the majority of his past memories are shot. What remains of it are mainly personality files, information on martial arts techniques, and his strange affinity for explosives of all kinds.
Appearance: Stands at 6 foot 7 inches tall, and weighs 10 and a half tons. His chassis is a mixture of tungsten and chrome painted with a matte black finish. It is incredibly worn from many years of wear and tear. His facial plating is severely damaged, and a skull has been etched into it by Agent Patchwork, giving Kestrel a zombie like appearance.
Kestrel has a vast collection of knowledge on countless weapons and how they’re used. He also specializes in demolition and explosives. On top of that, the bot knows all different forms of martial arts. He’s also been observed to have immense strength, capable of stopping a train at full tilt with both hands, as well as speeds up to 75 miles per hour.
Agent Dossier: Ozai
Specializations: An assassin, but also a bit of a wildcard.
Story Synopsis: We know only what he told us, and what he told us was very...very little. He says he comes from a place called The Fold on the planet Ravka. He says it is a tear in the reality of the world where a nearly impenetrable swath of darkness lays. It grows every year and contains countless unnamed horrors. When asked about his personal background, he said, “I was ostracized as a monster, and thusly I became one.”
Appearance: Ozai is a lean figure that Stands at 5’7. Typically you can find him clad in a gritty looking leather get-up. The man looks like he’s a BDSM enthusiast, and his mask is a pearl white with the right eye constantly dripping what he calls liquid darkness. Without the suit and mask, Ozai is a slightly built white male with jet black eyes, and deep neon blue eyes. While wearing the mask, his eyes appear to be inky black, much like the tears dripping from his right eye.
His core ability is what he calls Siphon.
Siphon- a process in which Ozai can utilize to briefly steal another person’s ability. If he can kill that person, he keeps the ability forever, as well as any knowledge that the person had. As to what kinds of abilities he can steal, we haven’t really tested that yet. He told us that there hasn’t been a single time in combat where Siphon hasn’t been useful.
Abilities he has siphoned include:
Heartrending: Control of another person’s internal organs, including the heart(hence the name). He can use this to aid someone(make their heart rate slow so that they can calm down) or to kill someone dead. All he needs to do this is eyesight on the other person for several seconds. With something he calls an amplifier, he can cause a mass of people to drop dead just using eyesight alone. Thankfully he hasn’t found an amplifier yet.
Fabrikator: Control & full knowledge of materials, including metals, as well as various chemicals. He claims it’s useful for bomb making, and poison making. Not specifically in that order.
Tidemaking: Drawing moisture out of the air & the manipulation of water. He likes to use this to turn his body into a thin and hard to see vapor, just to scout ahead. He also uses tidemaking in tandem with a teleportation ability he uses through The Fold.
Copycat: An interesting ability no doubt, Ozai learned how to copy another person’s movements perfectly, and to store them in muscle memory.
Chronospike- An ability gained from killing an Infinity. When activated, time slows to a screeching halt, but doesn't affect Ozai or anyone else he chooses. This ability requires some channeling that can be interrupted, but once activated it stays on until Ozai wishes to switch it off. It doesn't typically work against others who are either immune to the effects of time or can manipulate time themselves.
As long as The Fold exists, Ozai comes back from death within a week.
Agent Dossier: Thane
Specializations: Clean up, various odd jobs, "double agent", fighter(if need be)
Story Synopsis: His background before the Midnight Syndicate was a brutal one. The man had a gift of seeing things before they happened, which interested The Syndicate; however, they don’t allow mortals, much less human beings, to join them. So instead, they gave him a choice. After the man was possessed and forced to slaughter his entire town, he was placed at his mother’s house. The gun to her temple, he suddenly came to his senses after the demon left the body. An agent from The Syndicate stopped time, and told him he could either die and go to hell for his actions...or he can be granted the gift of immortality. Of course, he chose immortality, but he didn’t know the Rite he had to take to be initiated as an Infinity. After choosing, he was forced to carve the still beating heart out of his mother’s chest cavity, and to eat it entirely. Reluctantly, he did. He had to. After this, he became an Infinity.
Appearance: Broad in the shoulders and chest area. Well built, but without meat or flesh. His form is hidden behind a black suit and tie, along with a white shirt. His teeth are gnashed together and are as sharp as pikes.Smoke rolls up from his eye sockets. He's a solid six foot tall.
Manipulation of time
Fear inducement, manipulation, and empowerment.
His bones are ludicrously resilient to all kinds of different attacks, and they are extremely dense despite being a hollowed skeleton.
Tar generation/manipulation(mostly capable of spewing tar out from his maw)
Extreme levels of strength and speed, more than Kestrel even.
Natural weaponry(claws and teeth)
Retroactive Immortality(after breaking the Rite that The Syndicate made him do, he keeps his immortality to a certain degree. The deity doesn’t age, but he can now be killed if one can get at the pocket watch he has.)
Agent Dossier: Mako
Alias: The Revenant Sentinel.
Specialization: Technology specialist. In a way, he’s consider a technomancer. There isn’t a piece of machinery or software he’s got a hold of that he hasn’t been able to control to its fullest. Without Mako, it would be difficult to know as much knowledge as The Discord Sect knows now. He can also act as fighter if need be, sent out to kill certain demonic entities controlled by The Syndicate.
Story Synopsis: The peculiar cyborg has never told us anything about his backstory. All that we know, is that he was astonishingly guilt-ridden when Terminus plucked him off the streets. Terminus and him kinda sorta kicked it off after awhile, but he hasn’t yet told her of what happened before he arrived in our plane.
Appearance: Mako stands at 5’10 and weighs 310 pounds. He typically wears a black tank-top and a pair of jeans around Discord Sect’s headquarters, but when in public he makes sure to wear dark tinted sunglasses and a long sleeve shirt of some kind. The reason he tries to stay low-key out in public is because his body is covered in different logos from the companies that sponsored him, as he says. Below the logos are textile etches of a maze covering his body from head to toe. Upon the top of his hands, are two dartboards with rings that switch from clockwise to counter-clockwise when he’s in combat.
Technomancy(He can interface with all kinds of different technology, and can utilize them how he sees fit)
Strength(capable of lifting and tossing roughly 3 tons up to 15+ meters away)
Speed(capable of dodging bullets fired from most handguns.)
Eye for an eye- Mako’s body has a way of generating energy based off the respective joules he’s struck with from an attack. Typically, in combat, he allows himself to be hit so that he can generate more energy for his next attack.
Ionizing Cannons- His arms can shift into twin deadly cannons capable of ionizing particles upon impact. From what he’s shown us, they can blow through 6 feet of concrete with a single shot. The cannons use up quite a bit of his energy with each shot, and can fire 3 from each before he has to recharge himself.
Labyrinth Irises- They give him a heads-up display so that he can monitor his vital signs, and his energy levels. He can use the irises to check up on system settings and diagnostics. He’s also able to access the internet from them, with an untraceable IP address. He claims that they also give him the ability to see in ultra violet and infrared, and he can see when magic is being used.
Electrical Currents- Mako sends out deadly bolts of electricity with enough voltage to kill an elephant. According to him, he can manipulate these currents so that they can spread from one hostile to another without having them needing to be close to each other.
Agent Dossier: Terminus
Specialization: Recruiter(with her particular skill set, she’s an absolute must have for the team) Although her time on the streets has taught her quite a bit about fighting, and Terminus can act as a fighter, she's so incredibly important to The Sect that all she's able to do is go out and find new recruits.
Story Synopsis: Terminus is a dimensional drifter. She belonged to a planet sized city located in a dimension she dubs “The Ethereal”. In that city, many people with her ability were used as slaves. Audioslaves, as she said herself, were used to generate the power for different sections of the city. They were also used as test subjects for new drugs and foods to approve of. To say she didn’t have parents would be a lie. She did have parents, but when they found out of her ability to warp and to use sound as not only a weapon but also as a healing aid, they sent her to an institution where she would be processed. The city thrives off of the sounds Audioslaves can make, as well as their natural aura that they can use to warp from place to place. Her story truly begins when she was being transferred to another section of the city, but the Grid System screwed up, and the truck got into a crash with another vehicle. Dozens of Audioslaves died in that truck, but she was saved. Not to mention- the dampener system in the truck that kept her from using her abilities was offline! She escaped, and lived on the streets for years until she warped to another dimension.
Dimensional warping(She has special access to a little slice of dimension, and she uses that dimension to look at the endless amounts of other dimensions to warp to. This is what makes her a valuable asset to the team- she can warp to other dimensions, and find new recruits for The Discord Sect.)
Sound- She can create beats and utilize sound to kill and destroy, but can also use them to speed up the body’s natural healing process. This is why she has speakers in her jacket, and headphones on her head usually at all times. She can also use the sound to propel herself forward and make her go faster.
No sound too loud, no sound too quiet- She has SPECTACULAR hearing, and one might think if she has sensitive hearing than she’d go deaf if she heard a sound too loud. That would be a false assumption. Not only can she hear a pin drop from up to 30+ miles away, but decibels far beyond 1000 decibels wouldn’t make her deaf. If anything, the noise would make her giddy with energy.
Audioslave Physiology- As an Audioslave, Terminus feeds off of noise. It only makes her more powerful. She’s immune to poison and diseases or viruses. She’s also kinda sorta immune to the noises she and other audioslaves can make. She can hear the noises she can make, but she cannot feed off of her own audio. Another note is that audioslaves live much longer than human beings do, but can be wounded and killed like a human can(for the most part)
Terminus stands at 5’3 and weighs 135 pounds. Her skin is pale white and her hair is a deep pink with strands that hang down into her face. She has cerulean irises that are almost always dilated. She wears a jacket that’s a couple of sizes too big, and looks similar to a firefighter’s jacket. It’s loaded with pockets on the inside that hold speakers. The jacket is bulletproof. She wears a pair of skinny jeans that are black, and punk boots that lace up to her upper shin.
Terminus has a pet.
The pet is vicious and in a fit of hysteria typically.
It only really likes her, but to everyone else it is spiteful.
Its name is Disco Hysteria.
Agent Dossier: Prism
Specialization: Fighter(and a good one at that)
Story Synopsis: He comes from a place called Zion. He appears to be humanoid, but has quite a few traits that make him an excellent fighter for Discord Sect. He claims to have been leading the charge for a group of freedom fighters against a tyrannical nigh omnipotent leader known as Zeta-Prime, and against all odds, he won. Prism usurped the throne, and the people took him in as their leader. It isn’t till after several years of ruling that he said he needed to visit a place called ‘Earth’ to look for a loved one of his called ‘Pixia’. While searching for her, he picked up a lot of unnecessary attention from The Midnight Syndicate. They dispatched a group of Dice to kill him, but he wiped the floor with them. Shortly afterwards, Terminus spotted him in a meadow in Ireland. She told him of The Midnight Syndicate, and how The Discord Sect planned on ending their power play over items and assassinations, as well as their slaughtering of anyone that plans on getting in their way. Just like that, Prism joined.
Appearance: His body is lean and lithe, like an acrobat’s build. He was found wearing a flowing crimson coat/duster with various ornate chains hanging from his back. Wrapped around his neck and chest is a vermillion scarf. Although he doesn’t typically wear the mask as it isn’t necessary, at times he donned the strange bunny mask he wears. The mask is oval shaped with very pointy ears. It’s eyes and mouth appear to be amused, and the eyes are like two crescent moons, crinkled in laughter, with the mouth grinning. Without the mask on, you’ll see what looks like a very young man, perhaps 16 or 17 years of age, with a cleanly shaven head and no beard. One eye is the color of blood, while the other a swirling indigo. Black diamonds are painted over both eyes over the skin, and when his eyes are closed it can be hard to tell if he has eyes or not.
Photo kinetic constructs- Constructs of solid light that move and act however Prism wishes them to.
Light generation- Creation of light if none exists.
Light manipulation(Self explanatory)
Sense of empathy- Can feel other’s emotions like they are his own. It can be helpful, but it can also be a hindrance.
Gift of Knowledge- Apparently the son of a God in Zion, Prism can gift others with anything he knows, while still keeping his own.
Superhuman agility and speed- If a gatling gun fired at him, Prism can dodge the first volley of bullets, but wouldn’t be able to keep it up for very long.
Various Occult Arts
While outside of Zion, Prism has to gather his energy from the sunlight. He can gather energy from the lights in the night stars and the moonlight, but it’s not really a ‘full meal’.
Hyper Regeneration- Prism proved to be very durable during training. Kestrel went as far as to tear Prism’s arm from its socket. Not only did the man continue fighting, but he also managed to heal the arm back over the course of a few minutes.
ADDENDUM: Evidently, while in Zion, Prism has countless other abilities. He’s practically a God there.
Prism came to Earth with a companion given to him by his sister, Orinoco to remind him of what he has at home. Said companion goes by the name Shiloh and is an incredibly cute little furry animal native to Zion. As cute as she might look, Shiloh has pretty potent offensive capabilities, and isn't to be trifled with.
Plus Prism would gut you for trying to kill her.
Agent Dossier: Kyne
Specialization: The leader of this little family.
Story Synopsis: Being a Guardian(and the only Guardian) Kyne’s duty was a simple one. Protect the order of nature on his planet. Things were all well and peachy, but then The Midnight Syndicate arrived in force. They overran the planet, and began a mass eradication of the Guardians. They were searching for someone. They were searching for someone. They were searching for him. Not only did they find him, but they took him away from his burning planet. As soon as they got back to their headquarters, they brainwashed him. They turned Kyne into a vicious killer to work for them. He was an official member of The Syndicate. Several years after the slaughtering of his people when he underwent a change. Typically, back on his planet, there were no seasons; however, since he was so in touch with nature, Kyne changed with the seasons. With the seasons, his appearance changed, as well as his abilities or powers. Thane, who had been looking for a way to rid himself of The Syndicate for good, spent a good couple of years diligently working on reversing the damage The Syndicate did to Kyne. To make a long story short, Thane and Kyne both managed to free themselves from The Syndicate and form their own little group, officially dubbed The Discord Sect.
