Origin & Background: When his mutant powers manifested, the orphan Justin used them to embark on a career of theft, stealing objects out from under the noses of their guardians. Finally captured by a Special Forces team equipped with advanced technology, he agreed to work with Project GILGAMESH as a trainer in exchange for immunity from prosecution for his prior crimes. When he has to fight, he likes to use a pair of Bowie knives (+1 to hit, +1d2 damage) to cut down his opponents between ticks of the clock. Never having had a family of his own, he is having some difficulty coming to terms with his new relationship with the kids of GILGAMESH.

  1. Some people might think that this character was inspired by Hiro from Heroes, but the actual primary inspiration is Ian McVicar from ESPers. Of course, Heroes seems to have taken so much from ESPers that I hope that Hudnall (the author of both ESPers and Interface, the incarnation of the story when it was with Marvel's Epic imprint) got some dosh out of it.
