    Basilio


    Genovese

    39 | February 2 | Male | Possessed Human
    Supporting | Unemployed
    appearance
    Basilio is a moderately terrifying man to look at. He stands 6’1” tall with a wide shouldered, muscular build. He has short cropped blonde hair and piercing blue eyes. His most prominent facial feature however is the jagged, pitted scar along his left cheek. He has multiple other scars adorning his body, but most of them are hidden under his clothes.

    Basilio dresses professionally, as a man of means should. His suits are tailored to include such practical features as specially designed seams to increase mobility and generally be slash resistant.

    personality
    Basilio is a man defined by the phrase 'the ends justify the means.’ He is fully prepared and capable of being loathed by everyone around him if it means that he can do what is necessary to keep them safe and happy. He is, in many ways, a true hero because he is willing to accurately play the role of the villain.

    His personality is slightly tainted by the being that he shares his body with: Adraxis the Fire Wyrm. He can be possessive and colder than he means to be, but Adraxis’ burning rage also counters Basilio's quiet, calculating anger. Adraxis is largely under Basilio's control as of now, but some of the more volatile, draconian personality traits can come out from time to time.

    He cares deeply for his son and loves his ex-wife despite her being gone. He would do anything for either of them.

    abilities
    Active
    Draconian Terror
    Basilio exudes an aura of fear for all who can see him. For most of the time, this aura simply serves to make Basilio seem dominant and mildly intimidating to most people. He can however condense all of the fear onto a single individual, overpowering them with immense terror. For a weaker willed mortal, this can intensify to the point that they literally die of fear after several minutes of exposure.

    The First Flame
    Basilio can breathe fire in a twenty foot line in front of him. This fire is different in that it is more the concept of fire rather than fire itself. It cannot be controlled through normal pyrokinesis and it will burn even those with immunity to fire and heat.

    Passive
    Weight on his Shoulders
    Basilio has the entire weight of a fully grown dragon, which is to say several tons, compressed into a human body. This means he is incredibly dense, making him very hard to physically damage. He is also ridiculously difficult to move and incredibly strong, able to lift up to four tons easily.

    Adraxis’ Resistance
    Basilio is immune to any damage that would be caused to him by fire and smoke.

    Weakness
    Weight on his Shoulders
    Due to his increased density Basilio is incapable of swimming as he sinks very much like a rock. If he isn't wearing specially enchanted shoes, he will break through most floors or sink into softer ground.

    Dragon's Presence
    While he is normally in control of himself, there are times when Basilio's personality is consumed by the entity of destruction inside of him. This usually occurs when someone takes or harms something or someone precious to him, such as his son. When this happens his vengeance will check swift and without mercy, regardless of who he has to hurt and what rules he had to break in the process.


    biography
    Basilio Genovese was born the only son of the Don of the Genovese crime family. He was raised with the expectation that he would take over in his father’s stead one day; a fate he wanted no part of. Luckily his destiny was not sealed entirely. While in school overseas, his potential was seen by an individual representing a collective organizational entity known as the Eye. Seeing a path laid out before him, Basilio resolved to do whatever it took to become a member of the Eye.

    He took his father's mantle at the age of eighteen and proceeded to carve a path through the other crime families of Halcyon city until the name Genovese was one whispered with reverence and fear. His father couldn't have been prouder, not knowing his son's true intentions. Basilio was inducted into the Eye and began his true work in the shadows.

    Sometime during his career, Basilio came across an artifact, the amulet of the Fire Wyrm. He called upon one Katerine Werner, an expert in xenolinguistics, to help him learn its secrets. Over time, the two fell in love and got married, agreeing to focus on their work and each other rather than having s child. However when Katerine got pregnant, a combination of Basilio's own compassion and the possessive influence of Adraxis swayed him into convincing her to have the child. After his son, Angelo, was born, Katerine left.

    Basilio's next several years were spent growing and maintaining his criminal empire in Halcyon all the while searching for his wife and the other Gultha: the former to apologise and try and win back. The latter to destroy. During this time, his son grew into a fine young man and became a superhero against his wishes. He berated Angelo for this but subtly encouraged his efforts.

    Then Phokrus manifested and Basilio needed to be in control. He grappled with Adraxis in his head until he was able to chain the dragon to his will. With Adraxis’ power and Basilio's sheer will power, they overcame P'llir and shattered the storm pillars. But the world was lost and so too was his son as far as he knew. But a young girl appeared with a message for him, a message from Angelo of a place where they could be safe.

    Basilio was one of the last people to come through the portal. He has almost nothing in the way of resources or contacts yet, but he plans on changing that.

    Resources
    Owns the restaurant La Bussola. Makes a modest income and lives in an apartment with his son, Angelo.
