Everett Eaton Elder is a tall, reasonably attractive man, with short blonde hair. He is clean shaven, with blue eyes. He is always dressed in only the finest brands, preferably whatever is in fashion at the moment. He speaks rather plainly and openly, with a clear Oregon accent.


As the Royal, Everett changes his eye color to green and his hair to black. He morphs a black goatee and moustache, and changes his features, becoming more muscular and powerfully built, appearance wise at least. He tends to speak with a distinctively Spanish accent. He wears a light grey costume, with purple gloves and boots with yellow trim. He has a similarly purple area running over his shoulder and down the outside of his arms, also with yellow trim. He wears a cowl with yellow lenses, with only his mouth with moustache and goatee visible. He wears a classic purple royal lion from coats of arms as a symbol on his chest. He brings a small gun in dark grey, which he calls the Royal Blaster.




Everett Eaton Elder was the heir to the Elder fortune and name in Emerald. He was very much a rich idiot with no dayjob, and no need for one. For reasons that only fate knows, a strange meteor crashed in his back yard when he was a teenager. When Everett discovered the meteor, he was bathed in a strange radiation that altered him, giving the power to alter his appearance at will. Though he at first used this power merely for pranks and other childish actions, he eventually used his powers for more malicious deeds, eventually graduating into full blown super villainy when he stole his suit and weapons from an aspiring inventor in Emerald City, killing the man in the process. He never even cared to learn the man's name. He continued as a villain, always operating outside Emerald City, doing anything he thought might alleviate his boredom.


Over time, the Royal came to the attention of the Chamber, and he became one of their agents, primarily operating abroad, primarily as a spy and saboteur. He would eventually marry Emma Emmelie Kessler, an aspiring Emerald City politician firmly in the pocket of the Chamber. Emma needed the Elder wealth and name to further her political agenda and aim to become the mayor of Emerald City, and Everett wanted a heir that could become the next Royal. There were little love lost between the two, but they at least respected each other, though Everett did attempt, and fail, at starting an affair with Emma's sister Elaine.


During their marriage, and as their children Elaine and Elliot was born, the Royal continued his schemes. He tried being a good father, but the children, and their lack of inherited powers. He grew even more distant to Elliot when his son discovered blood under his shirt after a mission. Elliot was but eight years old, but Everett didn't care. He threw himself into his work, even though he briefly protested when his son was enrolled in Elysium Academy.


While Everett was horrified at the Chamber's choice to use the Terror to punish his wife, killing his sister-in-law and traumatizing his son in the process, the Royal quietly accepted the punishment, his attention soon diverted as he discovered his daughter Elaine had inherited something resembling his powers after all.


The Royal continues working as the Chamber's agent outside Emerald City, as he starts his plans to groom his daughter into taking on his role.


Personality & Motivation:

Everett is motivated by boredom, above all else. Ever since he discovered his ability to change his appearance, he has used it for his own amusement, eventually putting it to work in adding to his family's wealth. He is a highly competent spy and saboteur, taking great pride in his work, even if he rarely bothers spending the time to learn the why of his missions. He has a preference for working outside Emerald City, to keep his business away from home. 


In the field, he is quick and methodical. There is no time for taking unnecessary  or stupid risks, like exposing his cover for the expense of a joke. While he is not above killing, he generally prefers not to.


While he respects his wife Emma to a certain degree, he is very much aware that their marriage is one of convenience: He wanted heirs, she wanted the prestige and money of the Elder name, and there is very little love between them. He had tried starting an affair with his wife's sister, but she rebuffed him. While he tried to be a loving father to his children at first, boredom eventually won out, and he has grown distant, especially with Elliot, the youngest, after he saw blood on his father's shirt after a mission. 


Discovering that his daughter Elaine had inherited his powers, Everett is currently planning to ease his boredom by training her as his partner.


Powers & Tactics:

The Royal covers his tracks, prefering to disguise himself to infiltrate and exfiltrate, preferably without being discovered. If discovered, he will usually rapidly teleport around an area to cause confusion of his whereabouts, using his Royal Blaster to take down any in his path. He can be a scarely competent fighter, owing to years of experience.


He prefers to avoid larger brawls, instead fighting enemies one-on-one whenever possible.


Power Descriptions:
The Royal is able to change his appearance to any humanoid form, a mutation caused by exposure to a strange meteor in his back yard as a child. He can also use this ability to blend in perfectly with surroundings, hiding himself from any visual senses. He is an incredibly skilled individual, having amassed a wealth of skills and experience through his more than twenty years as a super villain.


While these are his only natural abilities, he also uses technological enhancements to further his own skills: The Royal Blaster and the Royal Suit. Despite having the wealth to commission such items if necessary, the Royal stole them from an aspiring scientist in Emerald City, killing him in the process. The Royal Blaster shoots small pellets, roughly the size of a bullet. These can either deliver a potentially lethal or stunning electric charge. The Royal Suit affords him with an electromagnetic force field that protects him much damage, allows him to climb walls and slows his fall by applying bursts of electromagnetic energy. The lenses offers Infra- and Ultravision. Finally, its most important feature is what the Royal has dubbed the "Quick Escape". By folding dimensions, essentially skipping to another dimension briefly, the suit allows him to teleport between both short and long directions. Of course, the Royal knows, and cares, little about how the items actually works, as long as they work.

Ranged attacks being listed at +12 in the Combat Block was a leftover before I decided to make +1ATK/-1DC in ranged trade offs. It was listed right everywhere else, and has been fixed herel, too.


In Emerald City, he is an agent of the Chamber and the husband of a local politician, who is aiming to be mayor. He is also open to working freelance for other organizations, as long as it doesn't put him at odds with the Chamber. As a spy and saboteur, he would be suited for where the PCs need to stop him from escaping with intelligence, or stop him from sabotaging whatever he's up.  He is intended primarily as an antagonist for Rebellion, his heroic son, but also able to be used by others.
