As a Hero
After travelling round the worlds Michael was found by the leader of the Champions of Peace Mistress Redhead she offered him a peace among the Champions taking up her offer Michael joined the Future Champions.
As a Champion Michael's very first mission invloved saving their leader Mistress Redhead who had been taken captive by a goverment agency that the COPs found to be fake. Alongside Honour Girl and Soveregin Son Michael and his team-mates made their way to a complex that had been the prison of Mistress Redhead their he fought ninja's and lost his powers for a few hours in which he resorted to hand-to-hand combat with the arrival of the other Champions the fight changed in their favour and Mistress Redhead was freed. Shortly afterwords the COP's thought they deservd a break so they set up a ball for all it's members. The night was enjoyed by everyone and Michael spent time with his other team-mates.
Taking a trip to New York for some Christmas shopping. Michael came across and unexpected hick-up in his holiday plans. A villain to be precise Azreal the demon taking her anger out on some bystanders. Taking it upon himself he rushed to the peoples aid revealing himself to Azreal the two battled. Azreal played every trick in the book at one point all seemed lost for the hero until he decided to drop a building on Azreal giving himself time. Being Azreal she brushed this off and set forth for another attack. Sending out a beam of hellfire Michael countered with Lightning. When the lightning began to wain he took his chance and escaped into the mist that he had created. Oddly though Azreal let him go she could have easily caught up to him. Perhaps she was impressed with the boy. Ready or not he would not doubt face her again.
While on a night time fly to clear out his thoughts Michael heard police sirens ego through the city streets. Tailing them to a national bank Michael busted in and took down the criminals while taking care of a badly hurt hostage. Lifting the elderly woman in his arms he brought her to the paramedics outside only to be speechless at the night sky. Thousands of beams of colour spread through the sky, one of the Indigo beams shot towards him revealing itself to be an Indigo lantern ring. Taking the ring into his possession Michael became a member of the Indigo Lantern tribe along with other heroes such as Cell Phone Girl and Crimson Eagle. The three of them fought off Gluknairns and joined the rest of the earth Lanterns attacking the Gluknar's main ship. Eventually Gluknar was defeated and the Lanterns were no longer needed.
Life without Soul
Much as happened in Michael's life in the past few months, not only has his time with the Champion's given him experience's he would never have imagined. However his own life has tossed and turned in some cases for the better however in other cases for the worst. After a tidal wave that destroyed Champion Island Michael was one of the heroes that help with the clean up but self doubt plagued his mind surely he could have done something his weather powers could have averted the disaster but no he couldn't do anything.
During the night Michael felt the presence of one demonic individual one who he would come to hate; Azrael has returned this time with a challenge:
"I come to you with a wager, power for power. A slight touch and a piece of your soul is mine granting me an ability I desire. Should you win a piece of Rigus Mortis my demonic home will fade from memory. Or perhaps by feeding you similar ruinous forces as this wretch here you can aquire powers as well. As you see though losing could be harmfull. The streets one way or another will be tainted by my presence. To let it slide or fight the darkness is your call."
Without hesitation Michael accepted her challenge not only to save those on the island for her but he believed he was powerful enough he was sorely wrong in his assumption. The battle was fought viciously on both sides, eventually Azreal's new abilities and superior power granted her the victory. The battle took it's toll in him emotionally but also physically Azrael was able to achieve something that Michael had believed impossible, she was able to pierce his own diamond form this has had lasting repercussion's as Michael cannot enter his diamond form again or it will shatter and kill him. Upon her victory Azrael tore a piece of Michael's soul from him allowing her to control wind just as he does. But due to his soul being removed the rest of his soul and his own magic mixed with Azrael's creating a dagger consisting of Azrael's magic and his soul.
Back in his old home Michael had been informed by his sibling that there was an item destined to be his. After tearing down the protective enchantments that blocked his path Michael discovered a great library under his home filled with hundreds on books each with an untold number of mystical rituals contained in the pages
Powers, Abilities and Weaknesses
Magic- Magic deals with the flow of energy that exist in everything living, the practices used to control it are many and each is unique in it's own way. Most involve incantations of some description with only a rare few actively excluding it, These incantations focuses on the witches innate power channelling it allowing them to control the ambient mystically energy they possess. Magic is not necessarily good or bad, dark nor light in it's more basic sense its neutral its what an individuals chooses to do or practice with it that defines their magic. Michael being a natural born witch can control his own innate power to change and alter reality on either a small or large scale(within reason). To do this he commonly uses incantations in Latin but he can also use the English language through poetic methods such as rhyming couplets or haiku's even simply by stating what he wants. These incantations vary and give him a wide variety of abilities that include telepathy,mind control, elemental control, empathy, telekinesis, increased superhuman attributes, summoning and vanquishing of demons and spirits, premonitions, portal creation, teleportation, time travel etc. Michael can also use magic through sheer force of will however this tends to be smaller magic when compared to magic through spells. he also possess the common abilities of all witches such as the ability to channel energy through other sources for example sacred/enchanted items, through celestial events full moon/sun, other witches, the ability to create elixirs through herbs that contain mystical properties, heightened longevity. .
Electokinesis/Atmokinesis- Michael has the ability to influence the weather particularly that of electrical currents and lightning. While a common ability among elemental witches lightning is Michael's predominant elemental power which he can wield to far greater control, power and effect. His abilities under this power allow him to control, create or alter thunderstorms ,hurricanes, monsoons, tornadoes, temperature, blizzards, clouds, fog. Due to this affinity he is also immune to most aspects of the weather, can sense nearby of future weather patterns and can adapt to new atmospheric conditions creating a sort of earth link. However this power is very emotion based if Michael were to fall in a fit of rage or grief then the weather would be altered unconsciously creating violent or uncontrollable weather patterns. His electrical/lightning manipulation affinity allows his to absorb,create or redirect electrical currents for instances absorbing the power of electrical equipment, create electrical currents to charge electrical devices and redirect natural or created bolts of lightning. This power is exceptionally dangerous unless controlled it can be used to destroy wildlife,land or cities and on a more lower level could be used to electrocute individuals or other living beings, Michael's power can also be used to create heat without directly creating lightning itself. Each individual element associated with Atmokinesis for example air, water lightning can be used separately or together air/wind manipulation allows Michael to fly by controlling the air currents around him to lift him in the air which can also be used on other individuals or objects the largest he has so far lifted and moved was a two story building. Usually Michael controls the weather with his mind but he can however vocalise his control/command and the weather will alter accordingly. Due to years of experience Michael range is quite impressive cover vast landscapes while never fully pushing his powers past city wide storms he can push his weather control much further.
Telekinesis - Ever since learning how to control his considerable innate mystical energy Michael has shown a particular talent for the power of telekinesis, In the beginning he like all magic user had to concentrate excessively to even be able to more small items such as pencil, books or boxes however over time due to natural talent and practice the strength of his telekinetic powers has soared, Michael can now easily throw, toss or lift vehicle sized objects without straining himself. On one occasion he has actually pushed his telekinetic abilities so far as to uproot and lift a building off the ground. His telekinesis can also be used in other ways; due to the increase in strength of his power he can now fly at a speed of mach 3 without any damage to his outer body or inner organs, he has also developed the ability to create telekinetic shields to protect himself or others if he increases the range of the shield from any physical, mystical or energy based attack however the strength of said shield depends on how long and how hard he concentrates on keeping the shield up. A particular dark ability that he as developed from this rather common form of magic is telekinetic pain infliction. This sub-ability can be achieved in a variety of ways Michael most common use of this is to either telekinetic-ally pop the blood vessels in a individuals brain thereby causing an aneurysm which is particularly effective in neutralising beings such as Vampires or Werewolves, Metas and Mutant with healing factors due to the pain overcoming them entirely. The other way he chooses to inflict pain is by telekinetic shattering an individuals bones in most parts of the body through body parts such as the arms and legs are the most easily affected. With this ability he can also suffocate an individual by crushing their trachea thereby effectively cutting off a person air supply. This ability can stretch even further such as controlling the passage and flow of an individuals blood through the veins and arteries and heart similarly he could also crush or constrict a person organs causing pain and in some cases instant death however due to his morality he has only participated in the first three aspects (Aneurysm, Shattering and Suffocation.)
Basic powers and equipment
Spellcasting - Is the act of manipulating reality through a witches innate magical source, it is accessed by the use of spoken word which can consist of short sentences or phrases to a large series of words. Typically more complex and powerful spells are spoken in Latin due to their creation centuries ago, this however does not limit spellcasting as it can be used regardless of the language even by simply stating a phrase a witch can cast spells. Spellcasting can also include Rituals which tend to be more time consuming due to the fact they require certain celestial events, blood sacrifice etc.. however if collectively performed they can yield far greater effects for longer periods of time.
Channelling - is the ability to channel other forms of power and magic by focusing on natural and celestial events such as from the classical elements and the lunar/solar cycles. Witches are also able to channel the power from other witches either through their consent or if a more powerful and advanced witch by force. This is one of the only abilities a witch absolutely does not need any kind of incantation, spell or ritual and can be achieved simply through willpower and concentration.
Concoctions - By infusing a mixture of substances a witch has to ability to create liquid’s that produce a plethora of effects such as mind control, altering ones appearance, stripping or blocking powers etc... Witches create these liquids by mixing herbs, plants and other natural substances with magical properties. Michael as a witch has this basic ability and is exceptinally proficient in the creation of variety of concoctions due to his talent and continued practice. While a majority of concoctions are drank this is not always the case they can take affect by simple physical contact in fact even there creation can cause the desired affect depending on the particular concoctions ability. However the ingredients alone don’t not equal the creation of a potion one must have some magical talent meaning that mortals cannot create concoction despite having the correct ingredients
Crystals - A basic compound that witches use for locator spells or amplifying power, Crystals create the ability that allows a witch to find a object,person or collective amount of energy by placing a crystal on a map. The closer the crystal is the more violent the crystal with shake which corresponds to where the item or individual is in the real world. A further advanced technique of this allows the witch to gain a vision or "image" of the item,area or person using a similar method. To achieve this affect the Witch will guide the crystal over a reflective surface for example water,,glass etc..and once the item,area or person has been found will project a visual illusion in the reflective surface allowing the witch to see events transpiring from afar. Crystals also allow witches to channel their magic especially for those only beginning to harness their powers to cast more powerful spells, similarly they can also be used to store a witches innate magic which would allow a non-magic user to be able to cast spells until it runs out and must be recharged.
Book of Shadows - A book of Shadows is a magical tome passed down through generations of witches containing thousands of spells, incantations, rituals and potion recipes as well extensive knowledge on supernatural beings. places and events. Since learning of his witch heritage Michael has now gained access to his own family Book of Shadows which he uses to further his knowledge or witchcraft and demonology particularly in relation to vanquishing demons and banishing malevolent spirits back to Hell/Underworld/Limbo or Oblivion. The book itself continually creates more and more pages so that Michael can add further information to already existing information or new entry's of supernatural entities that he has come across that are not present already as well as spells and potions that he himself has created. To protect the book Michael keeps it locked in a chest at the foot of his bed protect by enchantments so that no individual other than those he trust can open it.
Soul Dagger- Created almost two years ago the soul dagger is a weapon forged from Michael's very on soul. This particular weapon was created by the demon god Azreal after she stole a piece of the witches soul. Michael can summon this weapon at any time by simply concentrating on the darkness in his own innate energy to project it into physical existence. So far the dagger has been shown to have various abilities of it's own, not only can it act as a regular dagger it can disrupt spells in effect, banish demonic entities without a spell or ritual, break down enchantments or mystical barriers, be channelled to draw extra power.
Mortality: Despite being an exceptionally powerful Witch with a high resistance to attacks otherwise fatal to humans, Michael does have human weakness he can be killed in various ways ,decapitation, firearms, heart extraction etc...he can also succumb to various humans diseases, fatigue and ageing(unless stunned by ritualistic magic), Furthermore he can feel pain and can be injured his bones can be broken or fractured, organs can be punctured along with cuts and bruises being common occurrence's.
Emotional Control: Magic is often tied with an individuals emotions under times of extreme distress when emotions are running high, Michael's powers will often lash out in random and destructive ways such as glass shattering, large downpours, objects being telekinetically propelled across rooms and if in such cases he is angry with a specific person: pain infliction. Due to his experience as a demon hunter and member of the Champions Michael has gained some ability to control his emotions during stressful situations however his emotions do flair up on occasion.
Higher Powers: Beings with stronger mystical, angelic or demonic powers will often be unaffected by Michael's own magic due to the more powerful nature of their powers. In these cases to overcome this problem Michael must draw extra power from other sources such as celestial events, other witches or various other magical sources of energies. If strong enough these beings can actually restrict Michael's access to his own magic thereby effectively leaving him powerless.
Michael is like a normal teenager a complex array of emotions, he is feisty, confident, and free spirited but he is also very protective of his friends, kind and caring even if he doesn't explicitly show it. Michael is very intelligent and clever, however he like every other being does have a few undesirable aspects to his personalty he is reckless and dangerous with his power often taking the approach that they are there for his fun. He is also quick tempered with those that get in his way. After part of his soul has been removed from him Michael's personalty has largely remained the safe except for one difference, he is now much more aggressive when fighting especially when using his soul dagger.
