Occupation: King of Thieves: Head of the Forty Thieves
Weapon discipline: Dual Wielder: Daggers. Right Hand Dagger: La Vie. Left Hand Dagger: La Mort
Element(s): Wicked Ice...a weaponized version of black ice, used from within his daggers.
Ability system: Not overly powerful, Tepes makes a living by stealing. His abilities are undoubtedly specialized for that; bar one. His main ability is not unique and mostly cliché; Spatial Manipulation. As a thief, going unseen is a necessity, and as a result, Tepes has developed the ability to distort the space around himself, allowing him to hide from sight. Don't be fooled, this ability is not a power nor is it superhuman, in fact it's very human. After years and years of training, he has found ways to make parts of his body invisible to the human, and otherwise, eye, for instance: if he were hiding near a vase, he would not simply hide behind it, he would use the flexibility of his limbs and his natural creativity to blend with the vase, making it appear as something completely different. This ability is not full proof, the sharper opponent, though incredibly sharp they'd have to be, might be suspicious, and the cautious opponent would attack anyway, just to be sure. (However, unjustified stupidity will not be tolerated; "I think I saw something so I'm going to throw a grenade there.")
Considering Tepes' own cautious nature, he has another ability to help him in tight situations; Collective Reasoning. This could otherwise be described as discernment. This ability allows him to make the quickest and most reliable decision when in a tight situation and was developed through harsh training with the last, and arguably most powerful, King of Thieves. This ability is also not superhuman, but it does allow for some rather above normal reaction speeds and beyond average planning.
His daggers don’t have any particular ability, aside from Wicked Ice. He's a weapons expert, it's what he does. In fact, to the dismay of his band of wayward followers, the Forty Thieves, he generally only steals weapons of immense value. However, for some very off reason, he has decided to go with two identical daggers known as the Raj. These daggers are called La Vie, life, and La Mort, death. Depending on which he strikes with first, Tepes decides the fate of his victims; he strongly believes in the power of Fate, it can’t be denied.
His last ability is the only supernatural strength his has; Sound Press. This ability allows him to control sound pressure. He can't create sound, meaning he can't make you hear things that aren't there, but he can, for instance, displace the sound of an attack, or of his voice. Also, he can use sound's pretty blistering speeds to deflect attacks and create sonic booms, which, though not particular physical, can cause some confusion when coupled with the ability to displace and even dampen it. A weak but useful skill.
He fights using two martial arts: Kajukenbo and Kalarippayattu.
Details: His background is unknown. He grew up in the tutelage of the previous King Of Thieves, and ultimately had no childhood. As a result he is cold, calculating and mysterious.
