Master Simian

Origin

Master Simian is a highly-intelligent, apelike-alien from an unknown dimension. He arrived in the Dimension of Centras through a ripple in time. He crashed in his Timebreaker on the third planet (called Ollearan) of the solar realm of Zhaunal. During the crash, he was nearly killed. He survived by using the wreckage of the ship to graft several jury-rigged cybernetic enhancements onto himself.

Master Simian is massive for one of his species. While standing upright, he is 14 feet in height. His living body is muscular and his cybernetic limbs are highly durable. The symbol on his stomach is a permanent brand that was put on him by something he refers to as “my atrocious mentor.” He often brags to his foes “I killed my mentor and you are nothing compared to the horror I’ve already faced.”

Master Simian’s home dimension was destroyed by a temporal event that the alien ape boasts was his doing. Unable to defeat his rivals, he decided to erase them from history. He feels little remorse for the lost reality. As a result, the time-traveling magician Doctor Chronos considers Master Simian his greatest nemesis. Master Simian hates Doctor Chronos and the previous conflicts between the two of them have been brutal and legendary.

The world known as Ollearan is a primitive jungle world that is primarily filled with diverse saurian species and small mammalians with animal-like instincts. Master Simian quickly came to dominate the world’s largest continent and has tamed the local simian aliens to be his troop of followers. While the Apeids of Ollearan are few with low intelligence, they are now completely loyal to Master Simian.

While Master Simian has yet to attack the other worlds of Zhaunal overtly, he has made strides in duplicating the temporal technology that brought him to Centras. Doctor Chronos has stopped Master Simian’s temporal machinations over and over, which enrages the Green Gorilla. His frustrations might cause him to seek a more violent confrontation with the peoples and worlds of Zhaunal.

Master Simian has a semi-intelligent pet dinosaur named Scalebyte. The dinosaur’s brain and body has been enhanced with biotechnology and cybernetic implants.

Abilities

While Master Simian’s intellect is staggering, he isn’t considered a super-genius. His alien physiology has been enhanced by the energy that flows through all of Centras’ realms. He has a natural ability to blend into the foliage of Ollearan, but it is more than just natural camouflage. He can bend light around himself, which allows him to shimmer in and out of the visible spectrum. When he does this, even his integrated cybernetics and biotechnology disappears.

After the initial crash on Ollearan, Master Simian spent over a year recovering using haphazard cybernetic implants. As his power base on Ollearan grew, he found the time to dedicate himself to crafting better cybernetics and biotechnology upgrades. As a result, he is now twice as strong as a normal member of his species, which was already extraordinary. He has strength that rivals even Helix Kheros, but it is manufactured strength and can be reduced as his cybernetics are damaged.

Due to his physical condition, Master Simian has become a supreme engineer when it comes to cybernetics and biotechnology. He can graft metal and constructed bio-matter onto almost any living organism.

Master Simian also has the ability to mentally dominate the primitive Apeids of Ollearan. He can extend this power to aliens with evolutionary origins to apelike creatures, but it only lasts for up to three hours (for the extremely dull-witted). The ability has no power over saurians or other types of alien life.

Master Simian has gained more and more foes as he’s put his various plans into action. While he actively avoids the attention of Helix of Centras and the Worlds’ Elders, he cares little for who he upsets or from who he steals technology. Besides Doctor Chronos (who came up with the derogatory nickname of “Techmonkey”), his most hated heroic foe is the Iron Marksman who constantly thwarts his raids against Fluxtechnologies’ holdings. His most hated villainous rival is the demonic Scourge named Hellion.

The High Hunter

Origin

The High Hunter wasn’t born in the Dimension of Centras, and even he’s not sure where he comes from (and he doesn’t really care). Most believe that he was pulled into Centras by an extra-dimensional storm.

While it isn’t known where The High Hunter comes from, many in Centras believe he comes from either Earth Alpha or Earth Beta. (The truth is that he comes from OUR Earth during the time of the First World War. However, his secret origin is also tied to Earth Beta and its horrific history.)

Some see The High Hunter as a dangerous invader, especially among the hierarchy of the Igigium Society of the Dimension of Eternallus. Their Eternal Seers say “He should not be.” There have been times that the Society has worked to remove The High Hunter from existence, yet somehow he always manages to survive.

While The High Hunter’s real name is unknown, Helix Kheros calls him Vittor. The Odd Man considers Helix to be a good man and even better friend. He is also close with the alien hero Shadowstar. He has a maddening kinship with the temporal magician Doctor Chronos.

The High Hunter’s mannerisms are strange to behold, and he has many unusual taboos that make it hard for him to find solace in Centras. He is most as home in the Dimension of the Void with its unusual life forms and quirky societies.

Abilities

The High Hunter is a highly skilled tracker and woodsman and is a crack shot with both bows and firearms. While in Centras, Vittor’s strength is twice what is normal for a standard human. He also has an uncanny gift for finding hidden or lost objects. These insights often appear to him in dreams, which are sometime disturbing.

The High Hunter also has a strange connection to all things ‘strange and warped’. Helix has observed as Vittor has tamed unnatural, tentacled beasts as if they were roan steeds. He has an ability that allows him to sense when portals open from alien realities. If the portal was opened by someone or something, he has a distorted vision of that being entering Centras.

Rogues Gallery

While The High Hunter spends a lot of time frustrating the Igigium Society, he doesn’t consider them to be his enemies. In fact, he doesn’t like the idea of having enemies but there a few weird rogues that work against him. Of these villains, the irregular sentient known as Out of Frame is the closest he has to a true nemesis.

Iron Marksman

Origin

The man named Talon Zedekiel fights villains using the codename Iron Marksman. He fights under the banner of the Rhippexinus conglomerate known as Fluxtechnologies. While his identity is known throughout the Reality Realm of Rhippex and much of the Dimension of Centras, he is rarely seen in the flesh anymore. Talon’s body is 30% cybernetic, and he is emotionally uncomfortable when not in one of the Iron Marksman armors.

There have been four major versions of the Iron Marksman armors, the V1, the V2-7, the V3-4, and the HIM1-3. The V1 was less of a powered armor-suit than an enhanced body-armor design with an energy pack. It wasn’t until the V2-7 that the Iron Marksman armor became advanced powered armor although it still required the external pack. The V2-7 is considered the iconic version of the Iron Marksman. It was in this armor that Talon became known as a hero.

The next few versions of the suit were variations on this design until the V3-1 armor. The design turned out to be unstable and while Talon was test piloting the suit, it suffered a deadly power cascade, erupted in flames, and crashed in a twisted wreck.

Talon survived, but he was hurt badly. Roughly one-fourth of his body was destroyed in the crash. Even though Fluxtechnologies paid to have him healed and enhanced with bio-engineering and cybernetics, he initially refused to test the next few armor designs. However, when a young admirer of his named Argos died piloting the V3-3 armor, Talon agreed to step back in for the next version.

The V3-4 is the first version of the armor that no longer required the external energy pack used by all the previous versions. The suit is designed specifically for Talon. The right leg is 90% mechanical and its components can be replaced with a variety of design options. The suit’s right arm is also completely mechanical below the elbow, and Talon has the option to replace the standard mechanical hand with a powerful F.L.U.X. Cannon (serial # FL235IM901).

The advanced HIM1-3 is a heavy, biotechnology exosuit that Talon uses when facing off against his toughest enemies, especially against demons from the Hell Realm. (It’s official codename is “Demonslayer.”) The suit is semi-sentient in its own right, and it can act in concert with Talon while he is piloting the V3-4. Other pilots can use the HIM1-3 but cannot take advantage of all its enhancements that link up with Talon’s cybernetics.

Talon is the ultimate company man despite the many setbacks he’s suffered in his career, yet he has very little true political power as part of Fluxtechnologies business hierarchy. However, he is considered an essential asset by the conglomerate’s founder and COO, Valentina Salvian. His company salary dwarfs even her own, which ensures his place as Iron Marksman. If he ever retires, he will be set for life.

Talon has three children named Bailee (oldest), Michaela, and Farron (youngest). His ex-wife, Michelyne Steros, is the non-powered hero known as Sepia Saber. Bailee has reached her majority in Rhippex society and is currently training to become a member of the Battalion League.

It is rumored that Talon and Valentina are working on a new type of armor that will allow Talon to live a more normal life.

Iron Marksmen V2-7

Abilities

While Talon is tech-savvy, he is not a genius. When presented with a new suit of armor to operate, he has a bit of a learning curve. Before the V3-1 crash, he wasn’t the fittest person and relied on the armor’s strength enhancements. Since the accident, he has worked hard to build the muscle strength of his remaining physical body, which is enhanced by his cybernetics and the Iron Marksman armors’ specially designed interfaces. In the V3-4, he is twice as strong as a normal Rhippexinus male. His strength in the HIM1-3 is nearly four times normal.

Talon was an expert shot with any sort of ranged firearm long before he became the Iron Marksman. His knowledge of firearms, especially energy weapons, is almost fanatical. He can take apart, retrofit, and even reverse engineer advanced firearms with ease. He has designed several unique weapons for Fluxtechnologies, which are patented under his name.

Much of Talon’s face and the right side of his head was burnt and deformed by the crash. While bio-engineering helped regrow much of what Talon lost, the end result doesn’t completely match his facial features. His right eye is completely gone, and his left eye is a bio-engineered replacement. Regardless, his vision is enhanced while in the Iron Marksman armors, especially in the V3-4. However, outside of it or the HIM1-3, Talon has poor depth perception.

As a denizen of Rhippex, Talon was born with a natural affinity for fire and touch of quicksilver in his blood. His bloodline isn’t as robust as other well-known Rhippexinus heroes, however, so he isn’t considered a true Impavid.

Rogues Gallery

As Iron Marksman, Talon has many personal and professional enemies. He has come into conflict with such villains as Bronze Butcher and Crisscross. The enmity with the latter comes from the time when Thrur Vilach held the title of Captain Centras.

Talon has fought many battles against Master Simian as part of his allegiance to Fluxtechnologies. His duties have also made him a target of Apeixxi Media in the company’s broadcasts. He’s also foiled corporate espionage engaged by RhinoCom.

However, his ultimate nemesis is the dangerous Scourge known as Razordog. Talon hates Razordog with a passion and he’s been known to work with Electric Arrow against the villain much to the displeasure of the Elite Committee of Fluxtechnologies.

Shadowstar

Origin

Shadowstar is a renown Impavid Hero whose real name is Uelhiksu Ilidi. She is a member of the Aestuagh, an alien species that originate from the Dimension of the Void. Her people are considered a dying breed due to the constant threats they have had to face through many generations of conflict. Shadowstar and her people come from a humid world called Ig in the Feevrac Sector.

As an Impavid, Shadowstar is a Paragon-Icon keeper for her kin, the Yaktin Family. She ascended to the position after her kinswoman Ennsea Ololen was killed protecting Ig from an extra-dimensional being known only as the Utterer. Ennsea’s death didn’t stop the Utterer completely, and it was Shadowstar who quickly took her place on the front lines against the ancient alien being and helped drive it back into the Unknown Reaches.

As a result, the civilized denizens of The Void now look upon Shadowstar a champion who protects them from dangerous extra-dimensional threats, as well as the machinations of dangerous Voidian species such as the Reopiaqar and the Vrissaryon. She has also vexed the Voidian conqueror known as the Dark Soldier and has fought alongside Helix of Centras against the Alpha Titans. She is a member of Moonforce, a team of Impavids charged with protecting The Void.

Shadowstar is good friends with Helix of Centras and the Kheros Family. She was greatly sadden by the death of Argent Kheros, as the two of them were very close. After the tragedy, Shadowstar was heartbroken and retreated to the Dimension of Eternallus to grieve for her lost love. It was The High Hunter who eventually convinced her to return to The Void to do her duty.

Abilities

Shadowstar has herculean strength, which is nearly equal to that of Helix Kheros. In a fight between the two of them, she would be able to hold her own for some time. However, she doesn’t have dense skin and bones like him and many other Paragon-Icon keepers.

Instead, Shadowstar has a wide range of abilities related to the Dimension of the Void. She can project powerful blasts of cold or of heat. Her cold blasts can freeze a opponent solid in seconds and her heat blasts can melt normal, alloyed metals in less than a minute.

Shadowstar can also choose to shimmer out of the visible spectrum and is also invisible to both infrared and ultraviolet light. She can hear radio waves and feel both microwaves and x-rays. She can shift her vision to see in any of the following: infrared, ultraviolet, and x-ray.

While in the Dimension of the Void, she can move between worlds as if she is running as supersonic speed. She cannot run like this on on terrestrial worlds, but she can fly at supersonic speeds while in an atmosphere, as long as it isn’t thin. On a world with higher gravity, her ability to fly is reduced by half.

Electric Arrow

Origin

Electric Arrow is a vigilante archer who works outside of the laws of the Dimension of Centras. Unlike many other vigilantes who take up the fight against crime due to some personal tragedy, he does what he does for the rush of facing off against Centras’ villains. He does have a sense of honor, however. How he gained his powers is unknown, but it isn’t rare for peoples born in the Reality Realm of Iianium to develop unique abilities.

Electric Arrow has a bit of a temper, which he usually takes out on the bad guys he works tirelessly to bring to justice. While he tries hard not to kill his foes, when innocents are in danger, all bets are off. He hates restrictive and unjust laws that take away the freedoms of the denizens of Centras.

His fight against injustice has made him a folk hero in Iianium. Often he will be aided by the downtrodden and the forgotten when he is being hunted by the authorities or by villains seeking revenge against him. He is a bit of a loner, however, and rarely stays on a floating tor for more than a few months.

Electric Arrow has few close personal relationships. He was once very close to Baethany Ashiran before she accepted the mantle of Captain Centras. The two of them are now forced to be enemies in the public eye. She’s arrested him half-a-dozen times as part of her duty to the Worlds’ Elders. Baethany’s nickname for him is Elar. It is the name that his few friends use when conversing with him casually.

Electric Arrow’s real name is unknown to the authorities and to the general public. He has somehow managed to erase his past from Iianium’s records or had someone do it for him. (Most believe it was Doctor Chronos.) The only being that knows his secret identity is the android hero known as The Bronze Robot. The machine man promised Electric Arrow ages ago that he’d never reveal the man’s name to anyone not even to Baethany.

Electric Arrow has never had a sidekick and would never consider it. It is known that he has a female canine pet, which is likely a Gallsou (a kind of winged dogkin native to Iianium). He calls her Kiileia. Only a handful of sentients have seen Kiileia. When Electric Arrow is in prison, The Bronze Robot takes care of the canine beast.

Electric Arrow’s base of operations is believed to be hidden somewhere in the outlying sectors of Iianium and is rumored to be protected by Windkins (beings of pure air).

Electric Arrow versus the Justices of Iianium

The police forces in Iianium are generally known as Justices. The realm’s judges are known as High Justices. The realm’s beleaguered militias are known as Low Justices, and they have very little power beyond their floating tors. While corruption is a major problem in Iianium, there are many Justices who serve and protect the denizens of the realm faithfully.

Electric Arrow hates corrupt Justices with a passion. He has taken down, at least, six corrupt Justices and one infamous High Justice who tried to use her political power to seek genocide against the Breriaks of the Tor of Irux. The Low Justices rarely oppose him, and he’s worked with them on occasion.

Electric Arrow has spent a lot of time imprisoned in Iianium, which is always problematic for the prison. Usually, he has to be kept isolated from other prisoners, for the safety of everyone. He is infamous for his escapes, but he never helps other inmates escape. In fact, he’ll help capture other escapees even if it means he is caught as well.

Abilities

Electric Arrow can infuse his bow, arrows, and any other hand-held or thrown weapon with a powerful electric energy. While he rarely uses firearms, he can enhance energy-based weapons with electric energy (a dangerous tactic that can cause a weapon to overload). While he can also shock people with a touch from his hands, he cannot project electric energy out from his body. He can absorb electricity and lightning into himself, however.

While Electric Arrow is very fast, he cannot run or fly at supersonic speeds. Instead, his electricity ability charges his heightened reflexes and keen vision.

Electric Arrow is a master pilot and combat ace, as all denizens of Iianium are taught to fly air vehicles from a young age. He can use his powers to start vehicles of any kind and override their security protocols. He is also able to ride any kind of winged creature native to his home realm, as well as a few from other realms.

Electric Arrow must consume twice as much food as a normal being from his Reality Realm. This is equivalent to four times what is normal for humans from Earth.

Rogues Gallery

Electric Arrow does not consider Captain Centras to be his enemy, but he understands that she must do her duty when ordered to bring him in by the Worlds’ Elders. He considers the Worlds’ Elders to be “a bunch of old fossils that have forgotten what it means to be a hero.”

  • Captain Centras (sometimes)
  • Gueneverix
  • Hellion
  • Law Oracles
  • Razordog
  • Worlds’ Elders

The powered mercenary team known as the Law Oracles consider Electric Arrow to be scourge to the purity of Centras. They are always trying to catch him while he is free. The closest Electric Arrow has to a nemesis is the villain Razordog. The two of them were once forced to share a cell.

Doctor Chronos

Origin

Doctor Chronos (or Romrama) is a magician and a time traveler who originates from the Dimension of Centras. He often protects the timestream from others that would change it, but he rarely gets involved with time paradoxes that exist beyond Centras and its connected dimensions.

When it comes to magical matters, Doctor Chronos is more of a radical. He is addicted to all things magical including a dimensional opiate that enhances magical ability and originated in the Dimension of the Void. His addictions haven’t yet caused him to slide towards darkness, but his naysayers believe it is only a matter of time. Regardless, his is one of the most powerful magicians known in Centras.

It isn’t generally known why Romrama is more dedicated to protecting time over magic. The truth is that one time, long ago, he failed to act and The Void was nearly extinguished from existence, which would have meant he would have lost access to the Null Plume. Therefore, he is now highly vigilant about protecting the temporal stability of Centras and The Void, so he doesn’t lose his magical edge.

After the near disaster, Doctor Chronos purposely forced his mind to schism to separate his emotional and rational halves. By doing so, he is able to partake of his emotional highs while protecting his logical mind. If shown that a temporal anomaly has arisen, Romrama has the ability to purge the high from his emotional half and deal with the situation at hand. Doing so is very hard on him physically.

Doctor Chronos is both a psychologist and a parapsychologist. He is knowledgeable about all aspects of the mind. He is highly telepathic and can speak any language that is known across Centras and The Void. He sensitive to the presence of spirits, especially demonic creatures from alien dimensions. He has an uncanny knack of getting what he wants through charm and guile.

While many see him as a hero, Doctor Chronos is also known as a scoundrel who has little respect for civic laws. He once said the following to a High Justice in the Reality Realm of Iianium (while on trial for public mischief): “Your supposed laws are highly restrictive constructs that slow time to a crawl.” He then managed to teleport away from the court, while shackled. Regardless of his actions, the common people of Iianium consider him a folk hero.

The man is also quite the Lothario, and his sexual appetite is considered complicated. While he prefers the company of females, he is both omnisexual and polyamorous. His past relationships often came to a dramatic and public end.

Worlds’ Elders

The Dimension of Centras is ruled by an elite group of retired Impavid Heroes who have passed on their Paragon-Icons, relics of the Paragonian War, to the next generation. This group is known as the Worlds’ Elders. The group is charged with the protection of the dimension from any enemies that try to subvert or conquer any Reality Realm within Centras.

The type of rule is a Gerontocracy.

Origin

Rarely do all of Centras’ Elders gather together in one place to debate and vote. Advanced technology allows them to meet in a senatorial arena that exists in a virtual-reality secured by a powerful AI. While the Worlds’ Elders, as a ruling body, is considered a Republic, every Reality Realm has various (and sometimes unique) forms of government that exist from world to world. And while many of them are either democratic or oligarchical, there are monarchies and dictatorships as well.

The Worlds’ Elders are served by many (but not all) of the powered Impavids of Centras, as well as the elite force of low-powered heroic soldiers known as the Battalion League.

Membership

Centrasan Impavid Heroes that retire from active duty are considered to have a place for life among the World Elders. Age is more important than gender, by far. (In fact, many of the current Elders are female, as there are more surviving Paragon-Icons that are matriarchal.) However, there isn’t a set age that a retired hero must be in order to be a member of the Worlds’ Elders and there aren’t a set number of seats among its members.

All former powered Impavids who once kept a Paragon-Icon are allowed to be a part of the Worlds’ Elders, as long as they abide by its edicts. There are many that do not and, thus, are not given a voice among the Elders. Also, it is rare for a retired, non-powered hero to be given a seat among the Worlds’ Elder, but it has happened in the past. In such cases, an unclaimed Paragon-Icon can be passed on to the heroes offspring or even his/her sidekick.

Vigilantes who work outside the laws of Centras are never allowed to be members of the Worlds’ Elders. Also, any Paragon-Icon keeper who defies the will of the Elders can never gain a seat even if they apologize for their actions later on. This prevents most icon keepers from questioning the orders of the Worlds’ Elders. It is a harsh system designed to prevent dangerous feuds or outright revolts. It works 95% of the time.

If a member of the Worlds’ Elders is convicted of a a capital crime such as treason, their seat can be revoked through a majority vote with at least 75% of the membership present for the vote. If the member’s family opposes the ruling, the Worlds’ Elders have the option to strip the family of its Paragon-Icon. If they do not, the Paragon-Icon is passed to the next oldest living female or male relative depending of whether or not the icon is Matriarchal or Patriarchal.
