Appearance: Outside of combat:
Name: Amodeus Elysius (Ah-moe-dee-us Ill-less-ee-us)
Personality: Sarcastic, but not deliberately mean or nasty. Tends to remain calm, and is slightly reserved. He is also stubborn, and loyal to his friends. Can be outwardly pessimistic. Does not enjoy killing, but tries not to let it get to him. All part of the job.
Background: Born with a heart defect, yet grew up as a normal member of the upper middle class. Amodeus didn't live in excess, but always had what he needed. He learned to shoot from his father, who recently passed away due to natural causes. After the event, he received his ability, and he found no other occupations where it would fit better than as a thief, or an assassin. He used his ability to break into a DARPA facility, and stole the suit he currently wears when entering combat. He began stealing to support himself, and even took on a single hit job, before he as found. He was then approached by a Japanese mafia leader, and was promised answers to his abilities, as well as information regarding future events. Finding himself unable to refuse, he took his stealth suit and escaped the country, joining the mafia in Japan.
Ability: To seemingly teleport short distances. He isn't sure if it is some kind of time control, or if it is some kind of FTL motion, but he knows he can just appear in a different location in the blink of an eye. He calls it "shunpo", the flash step. This ability, however, puts his body under immense physical strain. While not tiring, he will not use it often for fear of overworking his heart.
Attribute: In addition to, or simply because of his ability, he has an altered perception of time; things move slower for him than the average person. This is not a huge gap, just a few miliseconds of difference, but it gives him a slight advantage. This is typically displayed in his seemingly instantaneous reaction time.
Equipment: He carries a silenced Five-seveN, ideal for his stealth approach. He also wields a blacked out KA-BAR. His pistol carries 20 rounds per clip. His suit is a prototype, and is not fully developed. However, it features body armor capable of stopping handgun rounds. The goggles have thermal and night vision. It is also equipped with its own air system, which can be activated if in the presence of tear gas or the like. (permission from GM on the suit and all.
Alter-ego/Daytime personality: Amodeus works a minimum wage job in a restaurant as a waiter, and has a small apartment in the city. While not on the job, he enjoys relaxing over a bottle of rum. Since he's new to Japan, the only people he has any acquaintance with are those from the mafia. He hopes to eventually make friends with the team, since he has nothing much to do between jobs. He doesn't have a fake name, and hopes the helmet protects his identity enough to be safe.
Likes: Music, the night sky, rum.
Dislikes: The beach, hot temperatures, dishonor, naivety
Notes: He is by no means a soldier, and as such is not used to open conflict, and can froze if fired upon. He also is not the best shot in the world, nor can he wield other weapons effectively. His only success in combat comes from the sneak attacks his ability grants him.
