Physical Description: Caucasian male, 6'4" in height with a medium-heavy build. Structure of facial bones suggests Scandinavian heritage.
Powers: Subject's powers have drawn much interest from those in the company that still believe in the arcane. According to recovered theological scriptures ca. 1340 AD, subject is one of "the Chosen of Angels," human beings given supernatural power by "Heaven" to fight invading "demons" on earth. Further analysis into scientific explanation of scriptures as well as subject's powers is in progress. The described mechanic of subject's power involves the supposed projection of the "immortal soul" out of the body to create a field of "absolute terror" to strengthen and protect the body. Subject has been observed lifting objects as large and heavy as an eighteen-wheel tractor trailer -- how subject is capable of this is being studied, but power-armored field agents have reported being thrown great distances by mere punches, and their armor suits suffered substantial crushing damage as well. Subject is also capable of extracting "spirit energy" from other persons or beings in order to refresh his power stores, as well as creating a short-lived but highly lethal bonfire at will. Observations by field agents on subject's powers frequently describe a "golden glow" around subject's body; some, even those who were not briefed on the possible origins of his powers, suggested a heavenly origin for the subject.
Weaknesses: Powers include an immense capacity for recognizing the emotional states of others, as well as recognizing intentions -- according to subject, he is 'reading their souls.' Prolific womanizer, has been described by Field Agent Lauren McCowry as, "a chauvanistic pig." Subject routinely keeps company with several women at the same time, although to his credit he seems to genuinely appreciate their company despite his coarse mannerisms and speech. Great emotional instability, probably due to occurrences of past [see below]. Fiercely loyal to those he cares for and protective of even those he does not know; subject has interrupted several field agents' interdictory operations on dangerous heroes many times in the past and, furthermore, has even protected our field agents under attack by other groups. Analysis suggests that exploitation of subject's 'self-sacrificing' tendency and intense attachment to his companions may be preferable to a direct confrontation.
Affiliations: Strongly independent of groups. Has been observed fighting with many other heroes with no relation to one another.
Observations: Due to the subject's recent notoriety after the huge controversy surrounding his sudden and rapid descendant into villain-hood last fall and his release, information on him is now readily available. According to a combination of observed conversations with other heroes, folk fables, and reports from ancient theological manuscripts, subject originated in the Dark Ages ca. 1330-1350 AD. Subject apparently underwent extended stasis from approximately that time to around one year ago, when according to observed conversations, the hero Stormwind Rider found the "Heart Stone" that the subject was trapped in and freed the subject by dropping it. Reports have been given that crystals found in Circle of Thorns hideouts are similar if not identical to these "Heart Stones," but so far Research department has yielded no success in simulating the conditions of the subject's imprisonment. Subject is currently homeless, living out of the apartments and living quarters of friends. When queried about his homeless status by friends, subject generally replies that he hasn't gotten around to it, occasionally adding, "It's not home without her." Recently seen in the close company [and apartment] of the heroine Mockingbird.
Evaluation: While at one point subject was a massive threat to Crey Industries, his determination to destroy us utterly seems to have waned after his arrest of Countess Crey; however, we have managed to release her, which apparently subject is unaware of. Further analysis is pending, but until then subject is to be assume to be a dangerous threat; agents are hereby authorized to shoot on sight.
