Habits/Quirks: A certifiable madman. Mild-mannered botanist and pharmaceutical chemist by day; mad scientist and supervillain by night. Having dedicated his life to the belief that communication between plants and humans could one day be possible, self-experimentation with various chemical compounds and and pheromones led to an explosive laboratory accident that resulted in his powers – with the unfortunate side effect of schizophrenia. Uncontrollable psychotic episodes cause him to commit crimes, using his above average intellect to great effect. Spends almost all of his free time creating new and unusual plants, the majority of which are deadly for one reason or another. Afraid of his own madness, he makes sure that his colleagues and neighbours are unaware of his alter-ego, and they know him simply as a quiet, nerdy, unremarkable individual.
Fears: Fire, plant-eating insects, madness.
