Treu, the Chakra Mystic

Real Name: Felix Treu Webber
Occupation: Student of the Chakra Mystical arts
Base: Freedom City

Personality

Treu is a young outspoken youth who many considered to be both out of place and out of time. Chivalrous, determined, and strong willed, True is considered a close friend to many. He enjoys helping out others, especially those who are considered the "minority" and those who suffer from prejudice. Despite his temperment, there is a wealth of wisdom hidden behind his warm lit eyes.

Powers & Abilities

Treu was born with the innate ability to detect the auras of those around him, something he had learned to call Treu Sight. In addition to this, Treu often times finds that his personal chakra takes the form of flaming wolves, and has from time to time allowed him to surprisingly calm disturbed animals.

Treu uses these senses in order to manipulate chakra by means of mystical arts taught to him by a collective of mysterious mystics. This magic that he learned to call Chakra Mystical Manipulation, allowed him to mold the auras of those around him and himself in order to fabricate powerful spells with a theme revolving around fire, spirits, healing, and protection.

Treu is also a skilled ritualist, and thanks to his dedicated study of Chakra, he can spend a hero point to gain a different alternate effect for his Chakra Manipulation as well as come up with unique spells on the fly.

Allies

In addtion to the Master Mage Adrian Eldrich and the Freedom League, Treu has gathered quite the collection of connections over the past few years. These connections include some of the most prominent minority groups across Freedom City, gaining the respect of the likes of Johnny Rocket and Lady Liberty.

Enemies

Treu's efforts to eliminate prejudice in Freedom City has gained him quite the reputation from the likes of Nacht-Krieger, Weißer Ritter (aka the White Knight), and the Übermensch known as Mastermind. As a side note, there are many evil spirits who wouldn't mind making things troublesome for Treu who has a lot of spells that specifically affect incorporeal creatures, making things very difficult for their selfish schemes.

History

Treu started his life during a time of war when the German powers continued their invasion of US soil. It isn't fully well known of who Treu's parents were other than the fact that the boy was born with the Eyes of Ember. Even to this day, Treu is unsure if his original parents were even human, given his unique abilities and mystical eyesight.

For whatever reason, Treu was handed over to a group of mysterious Mystics who saw the child as a treasure. Growing up, Treu was very familiar with the manied differences of those in the world, as well as the harsh truths that came from living in a world filled with powerful Military Extremists. During his time with the mystics, he learned the arts of magic, learning how to purge evil spirits, heal, and provide simple magic tricks for shows.

Little did he know he was being prepared for what he would soon learn to be what would be the end of Erde, his native planet. When the Terminus Invasion happened, the planet itself was quickly overwhelmed, Omega's superior power and forces quickly overwhelming the planet. The Mystics had told Treu that they had been saving him for something greater.

It wasn't long before the German leadership in this world realized what was going on, and during an attack from some German military soldiers, the Mystics that Treu called his only family forced him through a mirror using some strange spell that he had not quite mastered yet. The mirror transported him into what he can only guess is the modern world where the Germans hadn't even made it to United States soil.

Now, Treu lives each day trying to live up to the ideals that the mystics had raised him up to believe in, hoping that he would someday be able to make their sacrifice to have not been in vein, and has although he has mastered the arts of mirror projection, he hasn't quite found a way to get back home.

Using Treu as a Villain

As a youth, Treu was recovered from an abandoned home and taken into the custody of the German authorities where the youth was quickly taken to a secret lab. Here, Der Führer himself saw it fit to train the child for his own means, calling him "Meine Rätsel", or for for those so unfortunate enough to face his bitter wrath: "Der Rote Rätsel." When gaining enough power, the powerful Mystic destroyed his master and proceeded to test his skill, hoping to find a worthy challenge. Now, he has traveled to Freedom City and is hoping to test his new found skills against the forces of both good and evil.

When using Der Rote Rätsel, he will do what he can to use his skill in intimidation and manipulation in order to put the players and villains against each other. Making sure to study his potential foes, he will use his spells to trap those not strong willed enough to face his powers in a coma while he focuses on more worthy and stronger willed opponents, often times trapping heroes and villains alike in distorted and twisted ideal choices of good and evil.

Changes: Flip the values of both Intimidate and Persuasion.
