    Easter Orthodox bishop of the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas on New York City's Lower East Side, Theodosius made waves not simply because he and the priests under him started to manifest paranormal abilities, but because he believed and preached that Jesus Christ and other miracle-working figures of Abrahamic lore were the Paragons of their era, and thus the paragons of today have likewise been touched by God, and thus have the responsibility to spread his message and example. this message, however controversial, has taken root as the Church of Jesus Christ, Paragon, a religious movement spreading across the continent. Unfortunately for Theodosius, one of those who shares his beliefs is Heiromonk Gregory of the Holy Transfiguration Monastery, who has not only the devotion of a zealot, but the ambition and possibly darker aspects of absolute devotion as well.

    Re: Kreuz Control: Paragons - Prometheus, Dire Straits, Archbishop Theodosius

    I need something like this for an upcoming adventure, so this is very timely. I always thought this perspective (superpowers are signs of divine favor) would be neat to explore. Same with the opposite point of view (miracles are just another superpower).

    An evangelical Christian preacher, Reverend Luke Butler was overcome by a fit in the middle of his sermon, suddenly quoting revelations 10:4 and speaking in tongues. when it passed, he described what he believed was a message from God, that all paranormals were creatures of the Devil, who had sold their souls and place in Paradise for power in this world, and would bring about its end. But if the humble faithful continued to believe, then they would be Saved and taken up to heaven while the so-called paragons would be left with their dying world and eternal torment in hell. When Butler's preaching reached the ears of a particularly arrogant pyrokinetic paranormal, they decided to teach him a lesson, only for their flames to wash over Butler like a harmless breeze, and butler stood untouched even as his stage burned around him.

    now bolstered by this 'shield of faith', Butler and his congregation founded the Seven Thunders sect, to spread the truth about the paranormal and punish those who would serve the wicked.

    fair cassandra: Dr. Gaither knows he can't forward his beliefs without being seen as quackery
    motivation - Harbinger: DR. Gaither is convinced that paranormals are the first wave of a subversive alien invasion, and that he is the only one who can lead Earth's defense

    One of the smartest men on earth, Dr. Julian Gaither was recruited to a top secret government think-tank to determine the origins of paranormals. when their findings were ultimately inconclusive and the team amicably thanked and disbanded, Gaither felt personally humiliated. Stewing over this failure at his New Mexico estate, Gaither hit upon the only possible reason the answers could elude the smartest man on earth: that the answer wasn't from earth! no, he couldn't have failed, they had all been deceived by extraterrestrial machinations, that the paranormals were a secret 5th column of alien spies and invaders, and now that he knew The Truth, Gaither KNEW it was his responsibility to bring together the defenders of humanity and organize them against the tip of the alien spear pointed at earth's heart. to this end, he created the Harbingers, a secret agency to monitor, study and ultimately counter the invaders in their midst.

    Hi, Kreusritter! Just wanted to let you know I'm a big fan, and planning on starting a thread of my own in the same vein as this one once I get my post count up a tad.

    To actually contribute, I'd like to see Luke Butler meet a paranormal that can also fight like a nat, just to imagine the look on his face when he realizes his faith isn't much use against a garden-variety fist.

    Yeah. Even the non-talented at fighting ones could be enough to kick his butt: as kenseido pointed out to me on Skype, even if you take away Superman's powers, he's still a large healthy adult male who can probably throw a punch or two.

    Plus there's the question of whether his immunity protects him from things like dropped rocks and the like.

    I think Supes is officially, like, 6'3" of what looks like Kansas farmboy muscle. And Clark Kent is listed as shorter because art of the disguise is standing up strait, because people are kinda dumb.

    Except fighting him doesn't make anyone like you more. Especially if he can still invoke "devil powers" to state why they couldn't laser-blast him.

    Butler has one use: figure out a way to get him with Gaither and watch the latter realize he's a paranormal.

    Ohh, that would be much better, yes! Remember when Graydon Creed in the old X-Men cartoon broke down over having Sabertooth for a father? I'm picturing that kind of breakdown.

    Before his breakout, the man who would be Zero was a genius, but also a micromanaging, workaholic control freak. Ignoring the advice of doctor to slow down and de-stress to cure his unexplained headaches, he eventually collapsed from the pain an exhaustion of doing too much at once. Days later, he awoke to find several duplicates of himself about his apartment, each one shifting their appearance to people he knew.

    after some initial tests on the local level, Mr. Zero began his singular conspiracy on a global scale, impersonating or even outright replacing important figures, with the singular goal of micro-managing the world to his exact precision. exactly what that entails is a matter up to the GM
