CEO and CPD (chief product designer) for Wehrmacht Security
Producers of Shieldwall, Glassteel, and Fearkills.
Shieldwall – An application (usually as a liquid like paint) which can be applied to any surface. The material bonds on the atomic level with the surface rendering it roughly five to ten times stronger (depending upon the material). This will make flexible surfaces rigid and porous surfaces nonporous. Like normal paint, one can unintentionally 'paint' a window or door closed – unable to ever be opened. Completely covering a house can potentially prevent air flow causing the death of the inhabitants. Never apply to a person or animal.
Glassteel – A clear material roughly eight times stronger than Plexiglas. While useful for preventing break-ins, it also prevents breaking out in case of fire or other emergency.
Fearkills – A weapon for home use that can rarely be used by an intruder. It plugs into a standard wall socket and fires an electrical arc at the source of fear with a strength proportionate to the amount of fear. If the wielder is not afraid the weapon will not fire. (Which means most criminals won't be able to take it away from the home owner and use it.) There have been cases of extreme toasting where only a few small chunks of very burnt body parts have been left of an intruder. Weapon owners are warned not to let their children anywhere near this weapon as some tragic incidents have been reported. This weapon has also cut down on domestic violence.
The Fearkills device somewhat resembles the hand-held portion of a Ghostbuster's proton pack. A perception only strengthened by the electrical arc which fries the person/object of fear. While not initially intentional, this similarity was only built upon by Spencer as a way to make owners more comfortable with using the device.
Wehrmacht Security also offers a discreet body disposal service for a small fee – available to owners of the Fearkills weapon. The disposal people also offer info on psychological counseling services available to the weapon owner.
The psychological counseling services offered by Wehrmacht Security are in part to assess people, especially the children, to see who can be recruited and educated to be part of a (future)
Wehrmacht Security has been the leader in pushing for legislation (in the puppet governments still left) which absolves manufacturers of responsibility for any 'misuse' of a product; EULA for everyday products. While such legal precautions are probably unnecessary, if Azazel falls and 'order' is restored, he'd like to have his legal butt covered as well as possible.Personality:
Brilliant, devious, cautious, only slightly charming, and occasionally disconcerting.Skills set:
Inventor, very observant, takes precautions, Equipment:
Whatever he needs when in his corporate development facilities.
On him, only a personal gun and customized body armor (using Shieldwall making it very thin, light and extremely difficult to spot). The personal gun is a modified 9 mm Beretta with Wehrmacht's Palmreader 2.1 – a biometric palm print reader. Spencer has also painted small separate radial lines of Shieldwall on the bullets (only – not on the shell) but not on the tip which results in a "Black Talon" type bullet.Alignment:
Perverse – superficially lawful but subtly delivering little packages of chaos and death.Notable Crimes:
None that he talks about – yet. He does keep a private tally based on deaths caused by his products which is currently in the thousands counting petty criminals, home-owners, family members and neighbors. Pets not counted of course.Rank:
Elite but currently unknown villain. (Unknown to most.)Home:
western Chicago suburb - outside of nuclear blast radius.History:
Bright but psychologically scarred, Spencer wanted superhuman abilities to better defend himself even before Azazel purged all the heroes. During the purge of superheroes, a stray shot went through the building he was in. When Spencer awoke, he was surprised as he thought he had been fried by the super powered beam. (He had but fortunately for him it was mystically based and it altered him instead of just killing him.) Afterwards most things about him were heightened: intelligence, perversity, homicidal intentions, and physical resilience (not that he knows about this one yet).
After that Spencer quickly rose through the ranks at Wehrmacht Security as Azazel finished up the purge and consolidated his control. He enjoys producing products that make the lives of petty criminals difficult while simultaneously endangering the home-owners. Plus, a company selling home security products gives the average person hope that things could still get better – a delicious cruelty.
Said to someone in authority:
"What? I'm not allowed to make a profit from my abilities? Besides, I thought you'd be pleased. Now the two-bit lame 'villains' who don't deserve even a second of your attention can be killed by a home-owner. Everyone who matters wins. The home-owner matters more than the lame nobody because the home owner is part of the masses that grease the wheels of society – sometimes with their sweat, sometimes with their blood."
Wehrmacht Security does offer corporate discounts - whether to official corporations or unofficial family-based 'corporations' (which tended to be charged under the RICO Act).
