Character Profile: Dr. Barbaas

FROM THE EDANIA ORGANIZATION ARCHIVES:

NAME: DR. BARBAAS

STATUS: CORRUPTED

AFFILIATION: DOREN CORP.

PRIMARY DARK-SEGOL: VOLATILE WEB

SECONDARY DARK-SEGOL: INSECT MUTATION

Dr. Barbaas is the head of genetic research at Doren Corp, and one of Doren’s most trusted henchmen. This twisted scientist has an aptitude for genetically engineering insects, turning your garden variety insects into monsters. Giant hornets that can shoot their stingers. Fluorescent tarantulas that can melt the flesh off of their victims. Rat-sized mantises that drain the energy from their prey. Cicadas that can cause blood vessels to rupture. He’s got a long list of sinister achievements. Add that to his short temper and sadistic nature and you have quite the volatile combination.  

His Primary Dark-Segol is called volatile Web. With it, he can manipulate the Malkiriite (the negatively-charged Segolite that is naturally found in the air) around him and channel it into his hands. With a single touch, he can burn his victims from the inside out. He can also use this ability to create barriers, though not as skillfully as other Corrupted.

His secondary Dark-Segol is passive. He can place his own Dark-Segol signature into his insectoid creations, which means that his mutant experiments are not only genetically modified, but they also have their own Dark-Segol signature. This means that any of his insects will have the same powers and limitations as any other Corrupted.
