Name: Tyrus Knox
Code Name: Moreau the Mystik
City: Platinum City
Powers and Abilities
Moreau's ability enables him to absorb all forms of radiant or conductive energy that are directed towards him and to release that energy from his hands. This power is passive, allowing Moreau to absorb energy at all times.
When he releases the energy, he can release it in many different forms, usually as concussive blasts of biokinetic energy, even amplified compared to the absorbed amount. Moreau can also store absorbed energy within his personal reserves, whereupon the energy increases his strength and recuperative abilities, as well as affording him a measure of invulnerability. He is also able to absorb magic energy and the psychic energies of psionics as easily as all the other kinds. However, this does not prevent him from being read or manipulated by a telepath but only sustains him and helps him to slow them down. It has been clearly stated that Moreau is also able to absorb and process kinetic energy similarly to Velora, but in a much less effective way.
His powers make it difficult to harm him with energy-based attacks; however, he can become overloaded from absorbing too much energy, though his upper limits are unknown, even to himself. He is, however, partially vulnerable to non-energy weapon attacks. If he were to be shot by a projectile weapon or hit with a crowbar, it could harm him. He carries guns that fire laser beams and plasma charges, and through which he can channel his personal energies.
Master Combatant: Moreau was an highly accomplished warrior and battle strategist, highly adept in many forms of hand-to-hand combat and in the use of a variety of weaponry.
Gifted Intelligence: Moreau has a diploma in law and is also in possession of an education provided by the Nylons, which is far in advance of modern era conventional education, especially in the sciences.
- Originally unlike Velora and Portal, Moreau was unable to absorb energy from inertial impacts such as hitting walls. This does not mean he was incapable of absorbing kinetic energy. Some kinetic effects were still absorbable. It would seem that he is learning to absorb inertial impact energy, however he still cannot do so with anywhere near the efficiency of Velora or Portal. Whether it is possible to increase this ability in time with practice is unknown.
- Some energy types are more difficult to absorb than others. Moreau can be overloaded by trying to absorb too much energy.
- Although he can absorb psionic energy from blasts or telekinetic attacks, Moreau is not immune to telepathic attacks (as demonstrated by Pilgrim).
Formerly the engineered craft known as Silverwing, various aircrafts constructed by Carmine, S.T.R.I.K.E., RSA and various aircrafts constructed by Ship.
Moreau normally carries plasma rifles, explosives, a pair of knives, and a Psimitar. He is also equipped with guns that fire laser beams and plasma charges. He is able to recharge them with his own stored energy.
- Birthdate is unknown.
