Two characters this time: a time traveler, and Fantasy Force’s main opponent (who is also my entry into the current character contest).






Name: Unknown
Aliases: Warp
Age: Unknown
Alignment: Neutral
Associations: none
Powers/Skills: Magic, time-space manipulation

In the Astra Universe, humans are naturally immune to first-hand magic. This also means that, normally, a human cannot directly use magic. But, as with most things, there are exceptions. Rarely, a human will be able to directly use magic as effectively as a fairy. Warp is an example of said humans.
Warp was a mage in her original time of the Medieval Age. She was performing experiments on the extent of her abilities when something strange happened. A odd vortex opened up, and sucked her inside, granting her the ability to manipulate time and space. Two unfortunate side effects though, was one: the complete wipeout of all her memories of her past and her identity; and two: immunity to the effects of time on her body.
Through much trial and error, Warp has built herself a working map of the existing timeline. But sometimes, this map fails her, and she has to find a way to fix it. Although, it can be said that in her earlier ventures, she would mess up the timeline out of pure curiosity.

I will say, shout-out to Mad Jack and his Walker character. I was heavily inspired by him for Warp.





Name: Austen Marius
Alias: Cy-Magus
Age: 35
Alignment: Villian
Associations: None currently known, arch-nemesis of Fantasy Force
Powers/Skills: Magic, able to see wider selection of electromagnetic spectrum through mechanical eye, superstrength

From a young age, Austen was gifted with power, money, and smarts. Unfortunately, the one thing that he lacked was a moral compass. What he had instead, was a intense greed for power. Power greater than his unique and already powerful gift of magic, unique in the fact that humans very rarely have the gift for magic.
When he was in his twenties, he was caught in a fire and, because of the severe injuries he suffered, he became a cyborg. But though he at first mourned the loss of his natural body parts, he grew to love his metal parts due to the enhancing effect they had on his magic, as well as the additional abilities they granted him: superstrength, and enhanced vision. But that did not satisfy his hunger.
Austen soon learned of Fantasy Force, as news of their feats reached him. Through deductive reasoning, he figured out that Arthur’s sword is the source of Arthur’s powers, and that Oberon is an alien. It’s sort of obvious, seeing as there is a surprising lack of humans with wings and that Austen already knew about the Felianti-Terran Alliance, unlike the majority of the human population. And he also knew that Felians had an innate gift for magic, much like his own. And so, Austen’s identity as Cy-Magus began.
His main goal was to capture Oberon and force him to explain how Cy-Magus could unleash the true potential of his magic, as well as obtain Arthur’s sword, Excalibur. But when Arsenal came on the scene, his priorities changed.
After watching Arsenal summon multiple weapons out of nowhere, Cy-Magus determined that he was going to have that power for himself. And he almost did, too: he had kidnapped Arsenal before she joined Fantasy Force, but set her free when he found out that she did not know where her weapon-summoning abilities came from. But that does not mean that he is done with her, Oberon, or Arthur yet. In fact, it’s only the beginning.

Again, any suggestions or critiques on either the pictures or the bio’s are welcome and greatly appreciated!
