The New Los Angeles Sentinels
Children of Judas Betrayer
Arcane Flame Summoning: Hellscorcher can summon magical flames to do his bidding. He can create blasts of fire, create fiery constructs, summon fire elementals, and other such applications of his mystic mastery over his flames.
Hellscorcher was born with power. A Metamage, Hellscorcher has the ability to call upon arcane flames, making them do his bidding. Whether its creating great gouts of flame, exploding fireballs, walls and cages of fire, or even summoning fire elementals, Hellscorcher has ultimate control over all the fire he summons.
Born into a very strict Catholic family, his gift was seen as a curse from birth. He was told that he was a devil-child, and that evil tainted his very soul, and it would consume him unless he was to swear off his abilities forever. He was beaten, at home or by the nuns at his school, whenever his abilities manifested, even if involuntarily. By the time he was a young man, any thought of the decency or kindness of others had been forcibly beaten out of him.
Convinced that he was irredeemably evil, he decided to play the part.
“Society is a game I can’t ever hope to win. So I quit.”
He began his career with a bang in the Rodney King Riots. One of hundreds of empowered Angelenos who fought across the city and surrounding area, he quickly donned a mask and makeshift costume, and called himself Hellscorcher. Fighting with every ounce of power he could muster, Hellscorcher burned countless buildings to the ground in the chaos and fought and killed five different superhumans in one-on-one combat, including a telekinetic Metahuman who worked for the National Guard.
Once the dust settled, Hellscorcher realized the trouble he was in. He had no connections or friends in the criminal world, and he was wanted for his crimes during the Riots. He was desperate for someplace, anyplace, to flee for sanctuary.
Ursis, impressed with his brutality and his magical powers, offered him a place as a member of the Children of Judas, as one of his new Betrayers. Hellscorcher was more than willing to join up, after all, what better place for a damned soul than a pack of gangsters, satanists, and demon worshippers?
Since that day, Hellscorcher has only grown in power, his talents honed with practice and training, and his powers enhanced with numerous magical tattoos.
