The D-Mod known as 'The Flame Headed Puppeteer.'
In Jace's Distral form his hair is transformed into living flame. It reaches upwards, producing little to no smoke, but still hot like a real flame. When you stare at it you can see the shape of a dark pair of eyes and a mouth in a mocking grin, not unlike those seen on some Theatre Masks. In this form he has an increase tolerance for heat, but no increase in protection from it.
The skin around his hands and lower arm also becomes smooth like a carabace, all but the tips of his fingers, giving the impression of fingerless gloves. It use to only cover the back of hands.
Before things changed Mr Dresden was a true businessman. A big shot in the industry. Saddly not the kind you really wanted to work for. He was good. Born into success he continued his family trait of being intelligent, ruthless, rough, and in the end, untouchable. He was cold towards opponents and warm to allies, or potential clients. As a far as others were concerned he wasn't really human. Just a number crunching thing that acting only for itself and people looked forward to his death.
Now. Now he isn't far different. Well that is if you discount the murderous intent.
Jace's mind is now warped but not twisted. Bent but not broken. In fact he doesn't realise he has really changed. But if you meet him you can feel the raw emotion that he emits. He has fallen into the sin of pride. Though this can be seen as no different to before his change, being bad then as well, now if confronted, if challenged or if his pride is attacked; he turns dangerous. His ruthlessness becomes merciless, his cold nature become murder, and his intelligence works towards only your end. In the end he is another corrupted soul.
Jaces' ability is both different and similar to other D-Mods.
Jaces ability using allows him to create a strange string of invisible energy from his body. This can then attach itself to any inanimate object, with some exceptions. At the moment he can produce up to 10 strings, one for each finger.
To attach it he has to have line of sight to the object first, after which it doesn't matter. He also has a limited range, this extends to about 7 or 8 meters. It allows him to do two things.
First any object that he can connect to becomes incendiary. At will, by snapping the connection, he can cause the object to explode into flames. Objects such as a water bottle and other similar things that would extinguish the flame instantly can not be made incendiary. The larger the object the more flames it produces. A book sized object will produce a small flame, where as a fridge size one would produce a large flame. Once ignited the flame follows normal physics, most vanishing due to a lack of fuel to burn.
The second ability the strings give him is the ability to control the inanimate object. This heavily influenced by weight, anything heavier then a bowling ball is impossible for him to control. The lighter it is the more control he gains. If he latches onto something too heavy he can't even try to move it. With real light object he can move them through the air and control them quite accurately. He can do this without viewing the object but for obvious reasons this is difficult and very inaccurate.
Now the exceptions. Angelik beings and the Earth. Any object in physical contact with either of these two things becomes immune to his strings and if they have a string connected it is broken without ignition. The reason for this are unknown. Thoeries include that anything containing a heaven based essence can not be affected by a hell one. Regardless it must be direct. A jar of dirt will not save you. The blood of an Angelik will not help either.
EDIT: 1st Power up. Poll win:
Jace has access to 20 strings now and the distance increased by several meters.
Also his flame hair now has arms created from the flames.
1. Basic handgun for self defence without having to resort to his D-mod self. Also light weight...
The start is too long ago to look at Jace. Why would anyone want to know about that self obsessed individual? No, the best time is to look at the day youth was revealed to the world and the concequence that came with it.
Jace was, and technically still is, the head of a british company worth millions. Though when compared to Angelik it is no were near as successful. Jace was in the business of war. Weapons, and technology. He would sell to one side, then sell to another. More often then enough his products would to both sides. Owning factories in several countries and providing a large amount of the worlds military, his business was meant to be an 'independent' force. To him it was for money.
When Youth was revealed, Mr. Dresden used his influence and money to be one of the first to try it. Being too old for his liking at the time this was a sending from heaven for him. With it he slowly returned to a more youthful appearance. He refused to see any kind of side affect. Despite this it was there. It just lurked under the surface.
As D-Mods appeared Jace saw a chance to leap upon a new opening. War was always business to him, and with that he began to supply arms to a mercenary company tasked with dealing with D-Mods. At the time he had no idea that this was Angeliks own taskforce. At the time he had no idea that he himself was becoming corrupt. He provided high quality goods and they provided cold hard cash and still do to this day.
The first incident of his change came when a D-Mod destroyed one of his factories and cost him a large chunk of business. That day he flew into a blinding rage, igniting several objects before calming down. Yet even then he refused to believe what others were beginning to see. The Angelik units came but where to late to find the D-Mod.
The second time it happened, by the same D-Mod, he snapped. He stalked off after the D-Mod. The D-Mod had grown topo confidant in having repeatedly escaped the Angeliks and when confronted by a 'Human' he laughed at Jace in the face, called him weak. First and last mistake.
By the time the Angeliks did arrive there was only ash and no witnesses.
Despite this Jace saw his change as an advantage. He practiced out of sight and tested his limits. But he refused to believe that he was 'One of those scum'. Here the corruption began to manifest more. Spending less time in an office he began to do more 'field work'. He was aggressive, forceful and dangerous. He just couldn't see how violent he had became. He refused to. In time his more bloody acts have increased, but money and threats keep them out of public light for the moment.
Now he is classed by Angelik as a D-Mod. However they find they must wait. As he is any sudden disappearance would cripple the company and ruin their supply chain. Though still hunted, it is done more discreetly. They know in time he will fall to the same level as the others. Then they can just publicly reveal it in a manner to keep the company stable. So for now they do it properly, reducing any damage may cause and pushing him little by little where they want him.
The time for them to act is getting close.
Jace is sensitive to insults. There is a chance any insult can send him into Distral form. You have been warned.
In Distral form he fights to win, but also to prove his power and this can cause him to play about with people and get over confidant. As a fighting style he is unorthodox.
He is well off, but his influence is faded, because of each incident. People want less to do with him as they get to know him. At the start of this roleplay he has spent so long out of the office that Angelik is willing to go after him. (This is just to remove any aspect of his bussiness giving him an immunity. So he really is just a D-Mod with a lot of money )
Can't think of anything else right now and I've been writing to long. Normal Drill, any problems I will fix no bother.
Any spelling mistakes are not my fault. I blame the pixies.
