Lucius Alba

"No, the ends don't justify the means, but to vanquish evil you must first control it."

Name Explanation:
The surname 'Alba' is usually of Spanish origin, however this is not the case with Lucius' family. It originally was a Latin name, meaning 'Dawn' in the vulgar form of the language. Since Latin in the time of the middle ages was widely used, several countries took the name in for various things, including Romania. The city Alba Lulia in Transylvania for instance. After the ancestors of Lucius' family fled to this city with their name smeared, they began using the prefix as their last name. The rest, as they say, is history.



The Looks


"He's got a lot of looks, but he always has that hood, that mask, and that flowing fabric of nobility." - Lucas Alba

The Legacy


"Give Lucius an inch and he'll find a way to shank you to death with the ruler." - Travis Masters


Personality: Lucius is a complex man who, at face value, seems like a patronizing, smug, and arrogant person. However, he maintains a sophisticated and dignified demeanor not seen in many modern men. For instance, he will never swear or lower himself when speaking, even when he's insulting someone. He simply can't be brought down from his elevated nobility—his ironclad pride makes sure of that. But when you get past the snide stoicism, urbane attitude, and dramatic theatrics, you find an emotional man fueled as much by passion, rage, and love as he is by logic.

When it comes to intellectuals, no one is as obsessed as Lucius. Sure they may be as knowledgeable, or even more so, but not many match his drive for learning. He strives to be the best at nearly everything, which has lead to him mastering numerous scientific, technological, and medical fields. He's one of those people that prioritizes information above everything else. Even all of his other interests seem to reflect this mindset. He is enthusiastic about things like philosophy, poetry, and history, while expressing distaste for things that require little brain power.

Despite his ambiguously evil actions, he is a civilized man that is as diligent about keeping his principles intact as he is his ego. He has a code of honor that is never broken. He won't lie, he will always keep his promises, and he won't indulge in vicious acts if they are without purpose. He will always aim for the lowest amount of collateral damage when going about his endeavors, and he will most always accept things like single combat. That said, he is known to use technicalities to skirt around and maintain this so called honor.

Another thing you may notice about Lucius is that he doesn't submit easily. From a basic conversation to a fight to the death, he will always remain on the same stubborn ground he took from the start. This isn't to say he can't be changed, he can be, but it is to say he can't be made to do something he doesn't want to do. He just doesn't care how powerful someone is or how much leverage they have against him, he will always speak his mind and never back down. Not even to a god....

For all his admirable qualities, Red is still a villain. He isn't above sleights or trickery, especially against an intelligent individual. His mindset justifies the means by the ends, and he isn't afraid to go to sometimes shocking lengths to achieve his goals. He does feel more guilt then he will show for his more questionable actions, but he locks it away because he knows it must be done for his so called greater good. In that sense he believes himself to be a martyr, for he is sacrificing his own conscious and soul to do what needs to be done. How true that is depends on who you're talking to, however.

In the end, Lucius is both ruthless and sorrowful; understanding, yet strong willed and set on his ideas. He just wants to see the world evolve, to see it prosper like never before and to leave a lasting impact, a legacy. Unfortunately though, he doesn't care what needs to be done to make that happen.


History: Lucius mostly keeps his past to himself, and for good reason. Ironically he was once human like anybody else, only through his intellect did he manage to 'evolve' as he says. The path to becoming who he is now was filled with tragedy, self loathing, and guilt. He had a loving family, a fiance, and all the money he needed to have a happy and up scale life. Science was his income, and boy was it lucrative. Though, he wasn't in it for the paycheck. He loved science and still does, perhaps more then anyone. For more then a decade, he and his fiance, as partners in New York, pioneered advances in science and technology years beyond their time. Still though, it wasn't enough. He saw what people with the metagene could do, what they could create. All they did was for nothing if these people could achieve it with vastly less effort. Rather then doing what most did when they had this revelation and try to get rid of metahumans he decided to do the opposite. He would evolve with the world, he would help it progress into this new age rather then inhibit it. The process to improving himself and his loved ones was dangerous however, so he had to perfect it before it was too late. Change was coming, and when it did he and his family would be ready.

Of course, some things don't go as planned. The attack on his city was swift and unexpected, utter chaos erupted. Like any sane person he tried to get out of the city, along with his fiance. He was going to take her and leave it all behind, but she couldn't watch him do something he would regret. She convinced him to turn back for the others. Once they grouped up, they evacuated together as fast as they could, but it wasn't fast enough. They hit a road block, traffic blocked their path and explosions were going off all around them. With much hesitation they decided to leave their vehicle and continue on foot, this choice Lucius would regret for years to come. Staying in the car may not have prevented what happened next, but Lucius beat himself up for it anyway. They ran through the alleyways of New York, and at one point had to go through a building. As they did though, it went up in flames rapidly, the source unknown. In seconds the building came down, bringing death to most of them. Lucius and his fiancé survived the collapse but she was mortally wounded. Holding her in his arms they had a final conversation. She told him to get away, to live for the both of them, and he promised he would.

In moments she was gone along with the rest of his loved ones, all in one stroke they were removed from existence. He was devastated, he grieved over the body of his love as long as he could, only stopping to fulfill his promise to live. Somehow with multiple broken bones he managed to get himself and his soon to be wife's body out of the alley. Eventually getting himself to a vehicle he got out of the city successfully. He drove distraught for hundreds of miles, finally stopping at a rather sentimental place to bury his lost love. He could have given her a normal funeral, but she would have wanted it the way he did it. He slept on the grass next to her grave with severe injuries for hours, why did this happen? The people he had lost were the only reason he ever got out of bed, and now they were gone. He couldn't take it, he wanted to die. He wished for so long that that building had taken him as well.

The only thing that kept him from killing himself was his promise. Upon getting treatment he somehow fully recovered. They told him he was lucky, but he didn't see it that way at all. He had nothing anymore. He wasn't strong enough to save them, not smart enough to improve them. If he had finished his research in time his loved ones would still be alive, he failed them.

He went to the bottle. He couldn't live sober without his love, the one who had rescued him from his sad existence. He drowned his sorrows for days on end, blaming himself, blaming god, blaming all the skeptics who didn't want to improve humanity through the scientific marvels the world had been seeing. He eventually decided to try his experiments on himself. A form of self preservation really, a way out of his promise. He had every intention of not surviving it, the mortality rate was so high it would take a miracle to survive. But, with his luck, he didn't get what he wanted.

He was mortified at the results, mortified he was still breathing. It wasn't fair. Was his judgement that clouded? Would it have worked on his love? Would she still be alive if he had been a little more brave? In a rage, and with his new and mysterious power to manipulate a Red Energy, he destroyed his lab. He sobbed, he lashed out, and the volatile power surging through him corrupted his ideals. After it was all over, a new Lucius Alba emerged from hiding. He was determined to do what he should have done before he lost his life. It wouldn't bring them back, it wouldn't bring her back, but maybe in his new world nothing like that would ever happen again. He was going to live, like she told him to, and not only that, he was going to achieve what they had set out to do so long ago—by any means necessary.

And thus, he began his crusade. He would forge his better world in blood if he had to. He would use his intellect, power, and resources to bring his twisted vision to a reality. This was all he had left of her; all he could do was continue to improve humanity, like he should have improved himself before disaster struck. After all the necessary pain was had, and all the evil was done, a dawn would be created—a utopia of immortals. The humble pioneering scientist had become the elitist, the revolutionist, the villain, the monster........


Codex I:
(Note, this is a series of journal entries meant to extend Lucius' History section as time goes on, however there are IC items that hold each set called Codexs. These also hold records of his research, all pertaining to the time an entry was recorded and what he is speaking about.)

"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex one, entry one: Since New York only months ago i have made several breakthroughs in my research of the meta gene. The chances of death were high, however my body managed to accept the gene. I'm now starting to see the benefits, and the drawbacks, of this illusive mutation. My mind runs at speeds unfathomable by humans, they would likely send one with a previously lesser mind then my own over the edge of insanity. My skin has increased in density, my natural healing accelerated, and i can produce an energy that is an enigma of its own. However, I'm not ashamed to admit these abilities have started to twist my personality, even causing a rage so powerful i must give in. These fallacies i believe to be well worth it though. They will be required for what comes next."

------------------------  

"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex one, entry two: It has been quite awhile since i did this, in all honesty i forgot about it. But none the less, I'm continuing now. My powers have increased as time has went on, and in the last year i have done many things i never believed i would. What prompted me to re-open this Codex however wasn't my abilities, no, it was my meeting of a mysterious creature calling itself 'Guilty Spark'. It was a technological marvel, battling Sven to a standstill and disallowing anything to be downloaded. Somehow it managed to power its exoskeleton despite it having incredible physical power and scanning capabilities. Could have been some sort of core with a near infinite energy source, but only time and research will tell. Keeping this in mind, I'm currently working on my own prototype of the exoskeleton for Sven to use.

Another experience to note was my defeat at the hands of a man calling himself 'Alpha'. He had unknowingly sent me into a tail spin by exploiting my weakness to this energies rage. That said, he spared my life and we made it a point to contact each other in the future due to our similar ideals. I have no idea where that will go, but perhaps it's better he is on my side until i find out more about him."


------------------------  


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex one, entry three: I have started to recruit others to my cause. Some more loosely then others, but they are with me either way. Despite my numbers growing we are far from able to make any moves that won't end in utter disaster. My close access to these metahumans has opened up new routes of research, allowing me to upgrade my own equipment and even forcibly change those with dormant genes to full superhumans. The rate of death is, as always, high. But i believe it to be decreasing as i refine my work.

To note, my power has now increased to the point where i am able to overpower several superhumans at once, and the drawbacks are more under my control. I believe it will continue to improve until i have mastered it."


------------------------


"This is......Lucius, signing on. Codex one, entry four: The body count my crimson energy has created has increased rapidly. One, fine, two, ok, a hundred? .....A thousand? I am feeling more guilt for these things then i would ever show, however, their blood i believe will forge a better world. If it must be done, the needs of the few are less important then those of the many.

*Sniffle Sound*

I killed a....i killed a young man in front of his sister last night. I......don't know how it got to this, but it did. Have i become another Necrodium? Have i become the monster i swore i would kill before i found he was already dead? Perhaps.........but maybe this monster is one for the right reasons."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex one, entry five: Yesterday was the most interesting day of my life. I encountered a trio of heroes when i sought to free a powerful child from the grips of a woman by the name Zafira. The two most notable were a male calling himself SIlus, and a hydrokinetic by the name Ryan Lester. Both showed great power, as did the girl i was attempting to free. It seems there are things not even science yet understand, as what i had laid my eyes upon was nothing short of reality manipulation. Even more interesting, this boy, Silus, seemed to have a connection to the AI Guilty Spark. Again he easily breached my security, however it wasn't to harm me, but help me as the trio and i had come to a temporary alliance. I ended up parting with them on bad terms due to the fact they let the child be taken after working so hard against it, but it wasn't entirely useless as i was able to purge the last bits of Zodiac from my mainframe and got information on powers i would have never thought possible otherwise.

In this entry, some of my most ground breaking research is filed. For those listening, this is the true start of my journey."
Codex II:
"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex two, entry one: I have allied myself with a group by the horrible name 'Ultra Gang'. Yes it sounds like something out of a Saturday morning cartoon, but these people serve a purpose that is not easily filled. Unfortunately the dimwit of a leader decided to make a major power grab by attempting to takeover the Capitol of Illinois. Not only that, he attacked an anti-metahuman rally openly. About the only thing he did right was unify the New York criminal underworld, but really that's just a small asset compared to the bigger picture. As soon as this unstable group inevitably falls, I'll take cover and seize any assets i can. Perhaps form a new organization with a higher purpose then money and power, with members i can trust...."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex two, entry two: Me and Alpha are beginning to break off from Ultra Gang. Our views are inherently different from them, and with its decline i see a reason to get out, and get out quickly. With the sight of Alpha's facility and his unmasking, i believe him to be trustworthy enough to have a closer alliance with. Or at least a closer one then i have with the other members of this 'gang'. In the end, my goals are what matters. And Ultra Gang is no longer helping me work toward them.

On another note, i believe Travis' research will prove to be quite beneficial. The idea he can make a human being artificially, and one with superhuman abilities no less, is highly intriguing. It could possibly lead to me getting the final piece to a puzzle i have been trying to solve for years."  


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex two, entry three:  After a quick seizure of a number of criminal assets in New York City, i found myself under attack by a mysterious, silver eyed midget.  Once again, my defeat was only allowed through the exploitation of my weakness to this crimson energies rage inducement. Thankfully though i was able to retreat before any major damage was taken, to my body and pride.

After that, i was approached by Travis Masters. He brought to my attention a metahuman fighting ring somewhere in Chicago. After which we both rounded up our forces to liberate the captured superhumans, which we were successful in doing despite being outmatched quite heavily. The group of superhumans was my largest number of recruits at a single time ever, and now the halls of the Sanctuary are filled with their voices."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex two, entry four: At last, i have put the pieces of my research together. Travis had offered the last bit i needed, i didn't even need to ask. Oh, how easily things sometimes go. With this, and the device i created after my meeting with the mysterious Nicolas Flamel, i will be able to create a body genetically identical to my own. But this being will be perfect, and more powerful. I will be reborn, young and ready to take the world by storm. The fact Travis suggested three is unfortunate, as the other two are likely to die...... But you must make sacrifices to gain.

It is important to note that a normal clone wouldn't have worked for my purposes, as clones generally have a blank, fresh mind; like a new born. However, utilizing the philosophers stone the mind can be molded genetically, to fit my current personality and allow the transfer to be much, much easier."
Codex III:
This is Lucius Alba.....signing on. Codex three, entry one: There was meant to be another entry in the last Codex....but i honestly couldn't add to that now. I am disgusted by myself. I'm....i'm a horrible monster. I attempted to kill my own children, and worse, make one into my little puppet. I was.....i was going to use Lucas as a vessel. Have i come to the point where i don't care about my blood? About the sanctity of life?

The boy......will go through so much pain, and i can't fix it. When i look at him, i see something i lost so long ago. Why? Why did i conjure up such evil? After i saw what i was becoming, after i fought it, i saw i was falling into an abyss that i won't easily crawl out of. But, even after all I've done, my Isabella still sees good in me, even when i don't. So perhaps.....there is hope.

I continue to question my scientific knowledge, as more and more mystical things are shown to me. I was resurrected, duplicated, reunited with the only person i ever cared about..... I don't know how any of it is possible, but as always, i intend to find out."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex three, entry two: I can no longer take this guilt..... It feels as if everything i come into contact with falls to ruins, or is corrupted just as i have been. I'm trying to fight it, the evil inside me. But i feel I'm falling, i'm getting weaker, and it keeps getting stronger. I never said i wanted this.......but i suppose it came to me for a reason, this burden. I know what must be done for this world, but i cannot allow myself to fall into the darkness. If i can't fight off the monster........I'll have to get rid of myself entirely."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex three, entry three: I have reformed the way i do things, and my views on evolution in general. I believe the world needs fixing, improvement. I will not bring myself to my old ways, however i do believe that morally questionable actions are fine to use, for the greater good. I have not taken a life in months.......as horrible as that sounds it's an improvement, and i hope it will be the start of a greater redemption.

On another note; with the inclusion of Gravitas, Rise has been officially formed from the fragments of the Ultra Gang and the three heads' vast resources. Together, we may well be the most powerful none governmental organization in the world. With the forming of this group, i hope to take the first steps toward a new evolution, one that no longer excludes humanity."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex three, entry four: After months of preparation and planning, the coup of Belarus is finished successfully. I believe this to be one of our greater pushes toward evolution, as i can now use the country as an example. I can show the world metahumans can be controlled, that superior technology can be made public, and it can all be harnessed for the betterment of the world and those in it. Already, the country has some of the most sophisticated tech in the world, has the largest percentage of metahumans in the world, and is prosperous and happy. If i have to do it one country at a time, i will. But soon the new, better world i envisioned will be a reality."


------------------------


"This is Lucius Alba, signing on. Codex three, entry five: I once again came face to face with my inner demons, and the horrible things i did to my son were revealed. He is taking it.....well. But that maybe just because he no longer has the pain. I have no idea if he has forgiven me.......that's ultimately up to him. However, i will always love that boy, no matter what. And i will do my best to fully remedy the mistake i made."





The Powers and Weaknesses


"All men want power, but you can rest assured that those who take it for themselves deserve it." - Lucius Alba

Powers

Red Energy: Lucius can generate and manipulate a chaotic translucent red energy that burns and corrodes matter to nothing on contact, literally tearing atoms apart after only a short amount of time, depending on how tough they are (It will do this to any matter type eventually, but longer exposure is required depending on the durability of the target). Lucius has truly mastered this power and has complete control over it on a microscopic level, allowing him to use it in creative and intricate ways, even negating it's harmful effects in specific areas. Even incredibly durable superhumans find it's all-consuming power hard to withstand. To top off the fact it can actually destroy cells, it has a tear gas like effect on the lungs when a person is around it for too long. His domination over this power combined with his high level of endurance allow for a massive amount of output without straining himself (The longer the charge time, the bigger the blast. So far his largest pulse covered a city block, but he rarely goes that far due to it's chaotic and 'uncivilized' nature).

Passive Augmentation: The Red Energy coursing through Lucius' bloodstream has made his body highly resilient overtime. Though he isn't as durable as he once was, he can take a very high amount of punishment, especially from damage types similar to his energy as his body is used to it. This includes things like heat, corrosion, energy, and to a lesser extent physical force. The energy in his body also treats his matter the opposite way it treats other substances in a form of reverse corrosion. It literally stores data on his being in his cells then works to bring him physically back to that state if he is damaged, basically acting as regeneration. However, this too has been reduced greatly from it's old power level. It takes up to three minutes to heal wounds that aren't life threatening, and goes all the way up to ten minutes for potentially lethal injuries (2).

Superhuman Intellect: The meta gene has made Lucius's already great mind think at a rate beyond any human ever could. He can solve even the hardest mathematical equations on the fly and is a tactical genius. He is so quick witted it is borderline precognitive, even the most subtle things being analyzed almost instantly. He specializes in chemistry and computer science, as well as hyper advanced tech. He can deduce powers and sometimes the background of characters with little information, such as knowing someone has had military training based on their movements. He is known for setting up elaborate plans to achieve his goals using manipulation, technology, and general social engineering.

Hyper-Cognitive Combat: Lucius' mind calculates in a unique way. You could say it's hard wired for strategy and tactics. His brain is so quick he can process thousands of probabilities per second, deducing the most likely one and thus allowing faster reaction time. Whilst that is happening he is always thinking of ways to beat his opponent, gathering literally all information regarding the fight and his opponent to stay multiple steps ahead. The more information he gathers, the easier it is for him to predict/put down his enemy. His reflexes are superb, everything seemingly in slow motion to him. On top of this he has mastered many forms of combat through his near perfect memory and training from the best of the best around the globe, becoming particularly skilled with a sword.

Illusion Resistance: Lucius' mind is highly resistant to illusions, only the seasoned master could produce an illusion that could fool him, and even that won't last very long. This is also an explanation for mental permission based powers not working on him.



Technology


Cora Zen: A rapier carefully crafted by Lucius, forged from the remains of Vlad the Impaler's legendary blade. It houses the core of the AI Sven, and is therefor an embodiment of the relationship between Lucius and his lost love. Because of this, the special abilities won't work for anyone but Lucius and his bloodline, in fact Sven would resist anyone but those few. Besides being nearly indestructible and sharp enough to cleave superhumans, it has several abilities and modes that are as follows (Takes one post after initialization to switch modes. Can't use abilities from other modes, so he only has access to two at a time):
Cora:
Cora: This is the offensive mode, a symbol of rage, intimidation, and pride. The jewel in the hilt glows red when in this mode, and it gains two abilities.

  • Vibro-Blade: The blade vibrates itself based on what it's sawing through, allowing near infinite and adaptive cutting power.

  • Tether: If Cora Zen cuts into any living being, it will latch onto their spirit and 'tether' itself to them. When tethered a being's spirit cannot move more then four feet from the sword by any means, but the tether only lasts three seconds after each cut is made. Moving past the four feet zone will not 'tug' on the sword as it is the root of the connection, however this is not true for the other way around. (Essentially a rp fluffed barrier to keep someone in melee range, only it's not visible and they can get out of said barrier if they aren't cut for three seconds).
Zen:
Zen: This is the defensive mode, a symbol of serenity, beauty, and compassion. The jewel in the hilt glows cyan when in this mode, and it gains two abilities.


  • Defensive Absorption: The sword may target an incoming energy attack, no matter what it is, then assimilate it into power for it's core. This allows small attacks like blasts to be reduced to nothing with a simple flick of the blade.

  • Counter Defense: When the blade is struck, an equal amount of force is sent into what struck it. This allows for an otherwise weak person to sword play with the strongest of metahumans.
Weaknesses:
- The jewel in the hilt is a weak point. Though by no means fragile it is a lot less durable then the rest of the blade, and if it's destroyed the sword loses it's special abilities.

- As obvious as it is, Lucius can be disarmed of the weapon by a crafty opponent without too much effort.

- When switching modes, no abilities from either set may be used (lasts one post).

- Lucius must have a certain amount of one of the symbolic emotions (Note: These are different for each user) to activate each mode. Once active the modes won't deactivate if he loses the required state of mind, but the abilities will be less effective.

(Since the user only has access to two special abilities at a time, four weaknesses should balance it.)
Appearance:

Soul Sync Sensor System: A powerful sensor relay that exists throughout Lucius' armor.  The system allows for advanced scanning of an area, as well as telepathic control over Lucius' technology and AI. The sensors themselves relay gathered information directly to the user's brain, hence the name 'Soul Sync'. Within the range of two hundred feet they can scan and map out the area on an atomic level, sense quantum tunneling/disruptions, track the spirit of any living being with superb accuracy, detect metagenes, and even detect strong emotions. The main purpose of this is a backup system under Red's control if Sven ever goes out, allocating some of the user's brain power in the process.
Weaknesses:

- The 'spirit' lockon is more of a compilation of different means of targeting, such as heat, sonar/radar, physics based tracking, and rapid hacking. It works very well, but it is not true 'soul tracking' and can therefore be fooled by some mystical powers.

- The emotional detection is based entirely on gathering information on demeanor, actions, and facial subtleties. Anyone with a really good poker face is essentially unreadable.  

- Lucius relies heavily on the tactical advantage mapping out an area provides. Whenever his scanners are fooled, it's like you're fooling the man himself.

- The emitter that connects Lucius' mind to Soul Sync and Sven is vibration based. That means a sound run at a certain frequency can disrupt and even destroy it.

- EMP's, though they won't shut any tech down, are enough to cloud Lucius' scanning.


Mask: Though it isn't used to the point it once was because of his sensor upgrade, Lucius still utilizes his mask for vision filters (Practically all of them), protection against flash bangs/sonic devices, protection against poison gas, and more streamlined hacking, as well as a sort of back up if his mental link with Soul Sync is corrupted. This as well as the rest of Lucius' tech has Sven uploaded into it. Is a part of Lucius' Repulsive Armor.
Weaknesses:
- Is the weakest point in Lucius' armor due to it's intricate nature, best place to attack if you're trying to break his defenses.


Repulsive Armor: Armor created by Lucius long ago, then upgraded once he lost his powers. It covers him from head to toe, is made of a highly durable metal alloy, and redirects force against it much like his old gadget the Repulsive Field. For example, if someone charges him at high speed, the force generated by the high velocity will be redirected into a pulse outward at whatever caused it, likely sending said thing flying. Doesn't damage anyone of superhuman durability really, but certainly has the power to throw them around.
Weaknesses:

- Shorts out after a couple high level hits.

- Water and other liquid seems to resist the repulsive aspect of the armor, and will even assist in shorting it out sooner if the armor is exposed long enough.

EMP Device: Sends out a massive EMP that shuts down or interferes with electronic devices.
Weaknesses:
- Though Lucius has shielding from EMPs if his armor is damaged it can become susceptible to them, making this a liability to use.

- Can't stop it from effecting allies.

- Electromagnetism can negate it.


EMP Shielding: All of Lucius' tech has been upgraded with EMP and water safe guards (except the ones with water specific weaknesses).
Weaknesses:
- The shielding itself can be negated by damaging Lucius' armor enough, bringing back his technologies inherent weakness to EMPs.

Selective Pulse Generator: Generates a pulse of telekinetic energy out from Lucius in all directions that can send objects flying with enough force to peel open a bank vault, but it can also be directed at specific objects, not effecting anything else within the pulse. Can also be re-calibrated to reverse the pulse, pulling objects in.
Weaknesses:
- Limited power means this can only be used three times per thread.


Whirlwind:  Small stick like device fired from Lucius'  gauntlet usually into the ground. Upon activation they can either send objects flying with the force of a category seven tornado or pulls them in with just as much strength.
Weaknesses:
- Can be easily disabled if one destroyed the stick.


Temperature Pocket: Creates a field of either super cold or super hot, range is a hundred meters.
Weaknesses:
- The harsh temperature effects Lucius just as much as it does anyone else, and some of his tech including the quantum cycle and chassis don't exactly benefit from extreme temperatures.

Quantum Cycle: An upgrade from Lucius' old teleporter. Allows for basic teleportation (limited to two hundred meters for combat purposes) but also allows for rapid and repeated teleportation to the point Lucius can be in up to three places at once. (Normal teleportation is still at the same pace as it was, he can now just duplicate himself briefly).
Weaknesses:
-If one of the 'duplicates' is hit even slightly, the function will deactivate and Lucius will stop teleporting, becoming one once again. Also the duplicates can only be maintained for so long as it is very intensive, heating the device more rapidly.

- Must have time to cool after repeated use or it risks exploding.

Reverb: Sends out hundreds of different sonic wavelengths capable of killing a normal human in about a minute. These wavelengths cause intense pain making it nearly impossible for a normal person to think, let alone react. Lucius' mask protects him from this.
Weaknesses:
- Will effect Lucius if his mask is removed/broken.

- Can only be used two minutes max

- Effects allies the same it would enemies.

- Sending out the exact opposite wave lengths will cause the device to short out.

Movement Stabilizer: Puts Lucius in a minor subspace, allowing damage but disallowing anything that would move him. With this on, Red cannot be moved by any means other then himself. This means a truck could hit him, and he wouldn't move an inch. Or he could walk through wicked fast wind speeds like it's a Sunday stroll. This extends to the user being able to for example walk on air or through a heavy goo substance as if it were not there. If it can be moved through by a normal person, the user can move through it anyway they want unhindered. (NOT phasing, it just allows the user to walk through anything none solid without trouble and not be moved by outside forces, damage from said forces still apply. Basically, sure he could walk through a wave of lava and not be hindered movement wise, but that doesn't mean it won't burn).
Weaknesses:
- The device that causes the stabilization is both not very durable and visibly on Lucius' bandoleer, making this easy to take out if one put their mind to it.

Micro Explosives: Rice sized explosives that fly at wicked fast speeds and can be programmed to follow a certain object/substance. Their power level can also be changed from fire cracker level all the way to something easily able to level a small building.
Weaknesses:
- If they are damaged in the slightest before detonation they will short out.

Protocol:
Protocol: Overclock: This command deactivates all gadgets listed above except Cora Zen and Movement Stabilizer, diverting power from Red's armor to increase his physical attributes. The armor in this mode allows for super strength and speed matching many high tier metahumans (Can crush a metal sphere into powder with one hand, outrun a bullet train, ect). This mode combined with his own superb reaction time makes him one of the most dangerous swordsmen on the planet.
Weaknesses:
- As mentioned above, all gadgets, including something as simple as his explosives or vision filters, are deactivated. This is a dueling stance, meant to trade versatility for martial power.

- After fifteen minutes, Red's armor will begin to overheat, and will eventually shut down. This leaves him with his tech fried and no attribute increase.

Protocol:
Protocol: Zenith: This command trades Red's powers for a one shot use of one of three potent abilities. Essentially, all the Red Energy in Lucius' cells is absorbed and stored in a normally empty power core in his armor's chest plate. Once there, the vast power can be tapped into by special systems to do things that were once considered off limits to the man. Firstly, he can make a single teleport to any dimension he has enough information on. Secondly, he can create a portal to a pocket dimensional copy of The Imperial Palace Throne Room, which his systems have full control over. And thirdly, he can release all the energy in the power core to create a blast more powerful then anything he could create on his own. With the vast amount of Red Energy in the core put into a single blast, it could potentially create dimensional rifts (This whole mode is mostly for plot, but i feel it needs to be said that anything having to do with damaging realities or dimensions is plot based, and requires the permission of all parties involved).
Weaknesses:
- The most obvious drawback is that Lucius is left without his energy generation, regen, and durability.

- There is only enough power in the core for a one shot use. If Red use's an ability, it takes several days for his body to come up with the necessary energy to do so again, or even give him his powers back. This means any dimensional travel is a one way trip, at least for a good 72 hours. The same applies to the use of the other abilities. The point is, when he uses an ability, this mode is as powerless as he is until he can recuperate.

- If the core is damaged enough, it will release the energy within. This not only causes a chaotic and ultra powerful explosion as described above, but it also denies Red use of this mode's abilities AND the chance to reabsorb the energy to get his powers back, making him powerless.

- Enough force can destroy the portal to Red's pocket dimension, and with the one use issue that leaves Red locked inside until he generates enough energy to make a new portal.

Equus Bass 770: A half a million dollar car, with another couple million thrown in for good measure. It's armor is nigh impenetrable due to it's adaptive shielding systems, and it can go into a sort of hyper drive mode where it is semi-incorporeal, allowing it to move at speeds around mach two safely. Has Sven built into it along with a Red Energy generator used for pulsing outward in case collision is inevitable.
Weaknesses:
- Though it is nearly impenetrable, anything above low superhuman can knock out the windows and tires as they aren't as reinforced as the other parts of the car.

- This thing only weighs like one ton, even if you can't put a scratch on it enough force can put it out of commission by flipping it on it's head.

- Multiple types of damage at once will confuse it's adaptive field and make it easier to breach.
Appearance:


Weaknesses

Pride: Lucius is very prideful, often walking into a trap he knows is there or giving his opponents advantages to avoid having his ego wounded. He may even not change his failing plans to something better if someone previously suggested it, as this would make it seem like that person was better then him. There are many other examples to this, but the one certain thing is it is one of his most exploitable weaknesses.

Rage: Using his energy a lot can cause him to forfeit his usual calm and calculated demeanor, sending him into a sort of rage mode. In this state he gets sloppy and can end up messing up his own plans.

Cold: A cold environment both reduces Lucius' energy output and slows it's reverse effect on him, meaning his regeneration is hampered.


Water: Lucius' energy is best diluted with water, which weakens its hot and acidic nature.

Selective Durability: Damage types that aren't listed under Passive Augmentation (Corrosion, Heat, Energy, Physical) have a much better time damaging Lucius, especelly damage types that are opposite Red Energy. A powerful ice manipulator could in theory kill him with a single onslaught.  
Damage Reference:
like Red Energy/Physical: Little Damage. Shrugs most of it off.

Unlike Red Energy, But Not It's Opposite: Medium Damage. He certainly feels it and can be wounded with repeated assault.

Opposite Red Energy: Heavy Damage. Doesn't do the equivalent of bullets to a normal person, but it deals devastating blows none the less.

Past: Lucius' past is a very sensitive subject for him, one that clouds his mind with grief and, sometimes, rage (Illusions that feature his deceased family are far more effective against him).

Children: To date, Lucius' three children are the easiest thing to use against him. He would go to the ends of the earth for them, so they can therefore be used for blackmail. The same can be said about a few of his closer followers and allies.


RP Mechanics

A Powerful Man: Lucius has carved out a name for himself over the last few years (Many, many threads), starting from nothing more then a man with a goal. He is the main head of the evolutionist organization 'Rise', Prime Minister (Dictator?) of Belarus, holds several criminal operations under his thumb, is the creator of some of the worlds most technologically advanced machines, wields vast resources, and commands an ever growing following of metahumans and military personnel. It is not known if he will ever stop his onslaught, but one thing is for certain: Lucius Alba is always a major player to consider.

Universal Displacement: Lucius has created a device that allows him to partially disconnect from the physical world, moving slightly into a pocket dimension. This stops any physical or mental power from directly effecting him unless he wants it to. (Note: Does not make him immune to anything, just gives a reason for why a telekinetic can't rip his head off with a motion. Essentially to make me less annoyed with permission based attacks.)

Physical Priority
Reaction 1
Endurance 2
Agility 3
Strength 4

Removed Molecule Scrambler by choice due to the fact it was quite broken and against what i want for the character.

Revamped. Powers were re-added, some gadgets removed, and protocols were added.

Should be fully looked over.
