Background

Blackagar Boltagon was born in Attilan, the city of the Inhumans, a race of genetically altered humans that had their DNA manipulated by the Kree and had developed, over time, in their secret city, removed from the rest of the world. Nestled in the Himalayas, Attilan provided seclusion and safety for the Inhuman race. Blackagar, unlike most Inhumans, was exposed to the terragen mists while in utero rather than after the age of majority when most who received the mists would. This resulted in a strange ambient electron attraction to a previously unknown particle within his mind, imbuing him with incredibly powerful abilities that, as an infant, he had no way of controlling. His first cries wrought destruction as the power of his voice destroyed structures and shook Attilan. He was promptly fitted with dampening devices and locked away inside a specially designed protective room where he received his education, training in meditation, and martial arts. His passtimes included reading, a lot of reading, and the occasional visit from those who weren't too frightened to be in the same room with him.

When the teen was finally released from his life of isolation, he would soon find it fraught with tragedy. There was betrayal from his brother, attack from the Kree, and ultimately the death of his own parents as a result of the use of his enormously destructive voice which knocked the ship from the sky, causing it to crash into Attilan, killing several and injuring many. He never wanted to be king. He wanted to live quietly, out of the way, where he wouldn't hurt anyone, and as a result of his power — his parents were now dead, and he was thrust into the position of leading his people when he was barely twenty years old. Eventually, he and the others of the royal family found themselves in exile, to wander a world that they didn't know and discover what lay beyond their own reclusive society. There are many threats to be addressed, and many allies will be needed. New York City seems to have the highest concentration of those allies and his family, and so from here, he will work to move forward.

IC Events

OOC Note: Black Bolt has a new player as of January 16, 2018. Most plot points from logs prior to this date remain the same while some interpersonal relationships may have changed. Please reach out via @mail or page if you'd like to discuss continuing storylines/prior interactions. I am open to working things out!

Traits

  • Genetically Engineered: Blackagar's Inhuman genetic engineering has resulted in a form that gives him greater than peak Human strength, stamina, speed, agility, endurance, and resistance to damage, extreme heat, and extreme cold (even the cold of space). These abilities, however, are diminished by exposure to contaminants and pollutants and will begin to diminish after a few weeks without visiting a more pristine environment.
  • Ambient Electron Attraction: When Blackagar was exposed to Terragen within the womb rather than at a later age, his mind developed a connection with ambient electrons as a result of a particle within his brain that attracts them, causing energy to build. This constantly building energy is difficult to harness, and resulted in Blackagar needing to be kept in a protective room for his entire childhood and still requires him to wear a dampening device to this day which helps to safely diffuse some of that energy. This energy can be released in a number of ways to varying effects.
  • Vocal Projection: There is a reason that Blackagar is functionally mute and has trained in meditation so as not to make a sound even inadvertantly. The sheer power of Blackagar's voice is such that, directed at a Kree ship was able to destroy it, causing it to fall on Attilan. The quietest mumble in his sleep could level the building in which he dreamed. With the added factor of intense emotions amplifying the effect, a shout could devastate a city or state and an enraged scream could shake the tectonic plates of a continent.
  • Focused Expulsion: Blackagar can force the built up energy out in several blasts of particles which can strike targets with directed concussive force the equivalent of hitting a target at range with enough force to flip a heavy military vehicle. He can deplete most of his energy stores to create an extremely powerful blast that could knock out extremely powerful supernatural opponents; however, doing so is exhausting and he cannot do so again without a full 8 hours of rest.
  • Focused Absorption: He can also force the particles around him to form a shield with the tensile strength to absorb the force of oncoming bullets, absorb a small explosion, or absorb the force of an oncoming heavy military vehicle. He can deplete most of his energy stores to create an extremely resilient shield that could absorb the force of a blow from even extremely powerful supernatural opponents; however, doing so is exhausting and he cannot do so again without a full 8 hours of rest.
  • Short-Range Telepathy: To those with whom he has established a rapport, particularly those who are family, Blackagar can establish a kind of mental telepathic/empathic link with a touch for limited communication as long as those individuals remain within close proximity (within a 20 foot radius).
  • Telepathic Resistance: Blackagar is extremely resistant to any invasive mental influence, with only the most powerful of telepaths likely to be able to break through those defenses.
