Suade is a very calm, observant individual. Suade was the name given to him, to couple with his power. Suade has a shadow, one that mimics his movements or mirrors his step. Like a second set of skin, his shadow can be hurt, hurt others, and consume energy. The shadow is everything Suade...isn't. While Suade is slow to anger and understanding of his surroundings, his shadow is angry, tyrannical, senseless. But Suade's naturally kind heart always wins back control over the shadow. But every time, it grows more difficult. Are You Broken?
Suade himself is loyal to Father. He doesn't question Father, he doesn't doubt Father. Father gave him a second chance, a second chance...what was his first? Was there ever a 'first' chance? While Suade doesn't question his role in Father's plan, his shadow does. Releasing his shadow is like allowing doubt and despair enter his mind. Whenever his shadow is summoned, his mind loses the ability to suppress more human instincts. His shadow questions father, it doubts Father will hold true to his word, and it doubts that Suade has the ability to regain a human life. But the shadow relies on Suade to be free of it's prison.
The shadow needs Suade, and Suade needs his shadow. Suade is not broken. The shadow is torn. Power
Suade has the ability to split in two sparate individuals, both identical. One hold's Suade's form, while the other is essentially a black clone of himself. No clothes, just darkness. Like a shadow. This shadow possesses all the physical strengths of Suade, but lacks the mental stability to keep those strengths in line. The shadow can remain 'summoned' for an endless period of time, but to every upside, there's a downside... Weakness
The shadow uses Suade's energy, just as much as Suade uses his own. Imagine a man jogging down the street. Now imagine him jogging down the street, but as he moves, he's also powering another human being right beside him. You could imagine that with double the effort, much more energy can be uses. Thus, if Suade uses his shadow in a fight, and they are both extremely active during the fight, Suade will get tired much quicker and will be less effective as time passes. Therefore, in order for his power to be effective, Suade must either resolve a confrontation quickly, or back off before he becomes a useless clump of tissue on the floor.
Apart from those weakness, Suade has a fear of dark, enclosed spaces. Screams also bother him, those of pain and fear. Of course, if he hears a scream or yell from someone being injured in some sort of fight, it won't bother him as much. But blood curdling, murderous screams that seem distant or mad will always haunt him. Appearance Description
Apart from the minimal facial hair and short mop on his head, Suade is, or rather, was, in relatively good shape. He was no muscle builder, but he wasn't soft either. A naturally toned body coupled with a few days a week at the gym, alongside the affects of hands-on physical training from his old job created a tall, strong, tanned man at 6"4'. Crime
Suade, in his former life, was a tank crewman in the United States Armed forces. Well, crewman is a rough term, considering he was the one barking out orders and ensuring that his
tank made it in an out of combat without so much as a dent on it. And that's just what he did. Over one hundred combat missions on his first deployment in Afghanistan, and his tank's paintjob only suffered a few scratches here and there, disregarding the RPG that, literally, bounced off of the tank's hull. So what changed? How did a star tanker end up screwing up so badly that it cost him his life?
The answer is simple. He let the power go to his head. He became over-confident, he thought that his tank, an extension of himself...much like his shadow... was invulnerable, which even for an Abrams isn't true. His judgement suffered as well, which is why when he ran his massive metal paper weight through a house's wall, he came out with two women and a trio of children plastered to his tracks, rather than the insurgents that he swore
But that wasn't the worst part. What happened next is what sealed the deal. Death
Murdering your fellow countrymen was a crime. One punishable by death. So when Andrew pleaded to his crew not to tell the brass and to instead forget about the god-forsaken shanty town they were in, and his crew refused to look the other way, the tiny inner compartment of the tank turned into a blood bath.
His friends turned on him, ordering him to drive back to base and 'fess up to what he had done, but Andrew wasn't having it. He instead drew the standard issue sidearm that all tankers had, and fired point blank into his gunner's head. The gunshot was piercingly load, and before the driver had a chance to even plead for his life, Andrew put another bullet into his head.
But shooting in a confined place such as the innards of the tank had its consequences. Like, starting a fire when the bullet exited the driver's head and slammed into an instrument panel. The smoke from that alone filled the cabin up far too quickly to offer him any other options except for escape, which is what he tried.
Sadly, the insurgents he did
see came out of hiding, and when the hatch opened, and Andrew's head popped out, four AK-47s opened up in him, killing him before he even knew what was going on.
Because of his death, and the betrayal he stopped before in festered into a mutiny, Suade's distrust of others in extremely hard to break. Other
Suade's shadow, now in the afterlife, holds all of his rage, his poor choices, his disingenuous feelings. The feelings that caused him to make the grave mistake that got him killed are ow all cooped up in the being that never was. If you stare at his shadow for a prolonged period of time, you will eventually see it moving, striving to escape his master's grasp...
