|Mortimer Balman (Scenesys ID: 454)
|"Since the dawn of sapience, the existence of we humble mortals has been driven by the need for shiny things. The need to place shiny things in ever more important spots. And the need to destroy someone else's shiny things."
|Multiverse Championship Wrestling
|Kind of a smoother Tom Waits-ish voice.
|Imagine Dragons - Warriors
Thousands of years ago into the future, Mortimer was a chosen pawn of the goddesses Mew, Celebi, and Jirachi. By their command he was flung across space and time to fight battles that they would or could not do themselves. Mort was extremely skilled at this, adapting to temporal dislocation with incredible speed, and being one of the most powerful fire-types of his era saw him survive all manner of adversity. Even in the Multiverse he continues to persist, officially having retired from all conflicts between the Union and Confederacy unless those conflicts should personally threaten him and what he holds dear. But even with that retirement, Mort is haunted by the atrocities he has witnessed and committed, and it is always a struggle to contain both his own demons while keeping his crew- most of whom have their own neuroses- from getting into trouble. Nothing would please him more than to stay out of the line of fire completely, but there is always that niggling voice that eternally lusts for battle; and the omnipresent spectre of past failures are always eager to remind him of his own fallibility.
- Damaged Goods: Most of the crew has some sort of neurotic behavior. Reder's mouth tends to outrun his brain, which tends to cause trouble. Roll is mentally retarded and completely innocent of mind, having a great deal of trouble comprehending bad things in the world around her. Falstaff is an almost completely feral beast that is barely controllable and hard to recognize as more than a wild monster. And Nettle delights in messing with peoples' heads and dreams, simply for amusement. Only Switchbait could be called particularly well-adjusted, and even he can be driven into a battle-hungry rage if the right buttons are pressed.
- The Me in the Mirror: Deep in Mortimer's heart, there is a monstrous thing. A reflection of himself that haunts his nightmares. It is a beast of hatred and vengeance and destruction, always screaming for justice for the wronged and the helpless. Extreme stresses brought on by rage and hate, usually from witnessing acts of meaningless sadism or cruelty, can bring this demon out. It is a ruthless and cold-blooded killing machine; the sort of thing that can, and will, commit nearly any atrocity in the name of justice with no hesitation or thought, even if that means its own destruction.
- Tainted Power: As a long-term side effect of consuming a powerful object known as the Tesseract, Mortimer bears an incredibly obvious magical signature that he has no control over. Those with magical senses can detect his presence immediately through any cover or concealment. Additionally, his body is constantly at conflict with hostile residual energies, leaving him in a perpetual state of recovery which has a particularly negative impact on his ability to process toxins (particularly alcohol) and digest non-food objects. All healing times are considered to be one step of severity greater than normal, and he may never mitigate recovery times with regeneration or medical assistance.
- Scar of the World-Slayer: A mark laid on all of those who participated in the Union's campaign to kill the Confederate Emperor, Viridian Sunrise, in the year A.U. 20. Though successful, the campaign resulted in the destruction of his inner universe and the countless beings within it. The mark takes the form of a sun-shaped birthmark on the bodies of each of those who were present that day. This mark appears as a sun broken into three pieces on his forehead, and if removed by any means it will simply reappear in the same place. It imposes upon its bearer total knowledge of everything that died in the Union's crusade, from enemy soldiers to newborn babes. Mortimer remembers and knows everything about them- names, faces, their entire lives up to their deaths. It doesn't teach him their skills, but it does give him an insight into the worlds and universe of Annu.

| A few days ago, Yuna put her life and sanity on the line to teach the Warp Iris about friendship and love. She knew it was going to be a costly attempt, whether it succeeded or not, and while it didn't kill her, it scrambled her memories and plunged her into a coma which may or may not be laced with nightmares.
Elner has been analyzing the options, and has enlisted Flamel Parsons' aid to lead a group of Yuna's friends into the depths of her fragmented psyche, to repair the damage and help bring her back.
What secrets will they uncover, and which of them will hold the key to bringing Yuna back to the waking world?
