Orpheus for Character Design Challenge 97: Everyday Heroes
Orpheus was just a violinist before his wife of only a day was killed by a gang know as “The Snakes”. He vowed he would some how avenge her death and took up a pact with the ancient gods. He was given a gift the gift to influence the mind through hypnotism, but the only way he can do so is through music. His songs can do anything from causing the target to sleep or to sending them into a fit of emotional hysteria (rage, fear, sadness, joy, etc.).
