Details/Limitations: Magic runes tattooed on his biceps, chest, and back allow a variety of powers, including; force-field projection, astral projection, animal control and communication, healing factor, and healing touch. Additionally, by meditating and drawing elaborate runic shapes in the air, he can create invisible barriers, harmful curses, and charms of protection applied to people or places, locate people or objects, and even see visions of past activity in his current area – although these powers take time to use. The runes on his skin give off a weird blue glow when using his powers.

Personality and Relationships
Primary Traits: Mysterious, gritty, intelligent, brave, inquisitive.
Likes: Museums, historical arts, travel, camping, solitude, justice.
Dislikes: Cruelty to animals, art theft/cultural theft, organised crime, pickles.
Habits/Quirks: Bright and quick-witted, a competent archeologist and exemplary historian. Once social and outgoing, he became quite private after gaining his powers, withdrawing considerably from his social and professional life to focus on the study and use of his abilities, which he kept secret – although he maintains a wry sense of humour and still enjoys keeping a close circle of friends. Holding a deep love and respect for ancient history and artefacts, he will feverishly investigate any thefts from museums and galleries as a personal matter. Adopting a dark, intimidating, and mysterious personality as the Blue Rune, his powers make him an unrivalled detective, and he can more than hold his own in combat. As part of a team or squad he makes an excellent support unit. Prefers to work at night.
