Aaron Dominic SkelterNickname
23 1/2Date of Birth
A young man, noticeably Caucasian, who stands at a slightly-above-average height with a slightly-above-average build, the type of a man who isn’t quite puny but isn’t a bodybuilder. He has rather short, blonde hair that is occasionally combed, which is coupled with blue eyes.
On a standard day, he has a disheveled appearance, noticeably wearing jackets well into the summertime. He almost always has an annoying smirk on his face. CostumePersonality
A rather arrogant, snarky young man, Aaron doesn’t have the blatantly sweet, caring, personality that a superhero would be seen with. He shows a lack of respect for most people and their opinions, seeing himself as a more important person. He’s smug yet also impatient, charming but also cold.
Despite this, he’s not a morally weak individual, and regularly uses his powers to help others and fight crime. He is highly dedicated to his superhero craft, though it may seem otherwise on occasion.
While he may be a jerk to some, he holds other superhumans in high regard (though he would never admit it.) He does hold significant contempt for the local police (corrupt) and even moreso, the DSA, which he views as the kings of red tape.Backstory
Aaron’s upbringing was a tough one, without any real guiding figures in his life. His mother died giving birth to him, and his father committed suicide shortly after, sending Aaron to the Suhona Orphanage, where he spent most of his life. Like many Suhona public services, the Suhona was a terrible place, underfunded, crowded, and filled with unloving matrons only there for the paycheck.
Aaron struggled through his childhood, having few friends and keeping to himself for the most part. At the age of 16, he got his hands on alcohol and subsequently gained an addiction to the vice. It was also around this time that Aaron discovered his superpowers- an innate magical ability that only came about every few generations. With long hours of practice, he eventually honed his magical skill- but unlike his forefathers, it manifested in the Dark Arts, a type of magic that focused on dark things, such as demons, curses, and death.
Skipping college, Aaron began working as a magician by day to support his drinking binges at night. Living like this for 2 years, he first used his magical powers as a “superhero” at 19, when he slaughtered a group of thugs trying to mug a young woman. The woman died of a shock-induced heart attack soon after, but this gave Aaron an idea- why not use this magical power for his benefit?
Thereafter, Aaron also added vigilantism into his schedule. As of yet, his few interactions with other superheroes have not been particularly pleasant, but new forces are emerging, and the man now known as Faust would soon discover that more firepower would be needed to take them down. SuperpowersDark Arts
Aaron is a skilled practitioner of the Dark Arts, a branch of magic focusing on conjuring and utter destruction. Conjuring-
Aaron can open portals to Hell and conjure demons from them. The demons he summons can be temperamental (they are instruments of Hell after all) and will only stay in the living world for a brief period of time, but their power can be terrifying if fully applied. Aaron can also conjure demonic items, such as the armor he uses as Faust. Necromancy-
A highly unstable magic form, Aaron can temporarily revive the dead, albeit as nearly mindless puppets. Hallunciations-
Aaron can cause an individual to have a hallucination about a given topic. This illusion is highly realistic and can be maintained, with proper focus, for up to 10 minutes. Teleportation-
Aaron can quickly teleport himself and anything in direct contact with him up to 100 meters away. Death Force-
Aaron can fire a deathly blast of red-black lightning from his hands, which causes immense pain in any living things and slowly causes the bodily organs to shut down. This attack is less lethal (but still effective enough) on superhumans.Maybe More-
The thought is horrifying. GadgetsHelliron Armor-
A suit of armor created out of the flesh of a demon, this armor serves as Aaron’s costume. It is resistant to magic of all forms and slightly resistant to bullets and stabs, but its greatest asset is its ability to instantly seal wounds. The armor hardly impedes Aaron’s motion. Teufel-
A doberman pinscher that was the subject of a magical experiment by Faust, allowing him to turn into a hellhound when Aaron repeats a certain whistle. As a hellhound, Teufel becomes twice as large and gains fangs, a flaming back, and red eyes. He can spit fire and is highly aggressive and deadly. TalentsStage Magic-
As a part-time stage magician, Aaron is highly capable at slight-of-hand, escapology, and other magic tricks. Martial Arts (very basic)-
Three taekwondo classes aren’t going to get you too far, but at least Aaron can fight hand-to-hand without hurting himself. Alcohol Tolerance-
Don’t challenge him to a drinking contest. WeaknessesAlcoholism-
When he isn’t Faust, Aaron is often times in a pub or bar, drunk as can be. This is obviously not a good things, even beyond cirrhosis. Sea Salt-
For some reason yet unknown, sea salt is capable of disrupting dark magic when used in large doses. Milk-
Highly allergic. Goes for booze instead.
