The Auteur of Murder
Simplistic, stylistic, sadistic; that is Sunderer. His identity is a well-guarded secret, the black mask disguising the features of minor socialite Artour Blaine. Were one to probe deeper, though, they'd find that Mister Blaine is himself the disguise, the murderous monster Sunderer bearing his true face.
Skills: Top-tier physical combatant, peak human physique. Uniquely resistant to external stimuli such as pain. Intuitive and adaptable style of combat, unable to be classified by traditional martial artists. Unpredictable fighting techniques result in a deadly foe capable of combining a wicked mockery of foes with deadly determination to have their heads. Utterly driven, obsesses over targets before hunting them. Exceptionally intelligent. Master of stealth and silent movement; learned in sleight of hand and escape artistry.
Gear: A dual-pronged obsidian fork is Sunderer's primary tool, boasting a blade with microscopic sharpness in stark contrast to any traditional weapon. The cutting edge of the weapon is but three nanometers thick. The body of the staff is composed of dense patterned celazole polymer, rendering it incredibly resistant to physical impacts, as well as lighter than a metal weapon. The staff is collapsible. Sunderer's simple costume is composed of a similar carbon weave, a patterned fabric which mitigates traumas incurred during combat. Sunderer's mask filters chemicals from the air as he breathes. Sunderer is known to employ chemically-concocted weapons, such as:
- Serotonin inhibitors, which create feelings of intense despair in those exposed. Structured to disable serotonin-producing neurotransmitters and turn a target's desires against themselves. Organic compound with a nondisclosed formula, likely concocted by Sunderer himself.
- Cyanide capsulets, which explode on a target's skin and distribute the potent poison into their bloodstream
- Smoke bombs with a potassium chlorate base
Sunderer is wealthy, though the exact extent of his personal capital is unknown.
Mental Ability: A proclivity for violence and debonair personality are overshadowed by Sunderer's single-focused instinctual drives. A true psychopath, Sunderer feels no remorse for his actions and is instead driven to fulfill his own desires at the expense of others' happiness, health, and human rights. Sunderer's mental state makes him uncannily resistant to telepathic intrusion, and his capacity to blend into ordinary life extends even to his own thoughts.
Cover Occupation: Psychiatrist.
Appearance and Age: Physically fit, youthful appearance. A Dorian Gray-esque look, replete with sufficient charisma to blend into upper-class society whilst plotting his next killings.
