STILL A WIP!
Chronoscape was once a decorated Hero working under the Superpowered Activities Monitoring division, his shocking and horrifying fall from grace shook the trust ordinary citizens had with their Superpowered counter-parts. He has been on the run from justice since November 21st last year despite the multiple task forces the Hero community has forged against him.
POWERS & ABILITIES
BASE OF OPERATIONS
Tommy was picked up as an informant and data analyst for Superpowered Activities Monitoring division under the FBSA to assist with data collection and threat assessment at a very young age where he worked for nearly 10 years. His ability to manipulate time can be enhanced temporarily to see short distances into the future making it possible to detect growing threats to humanity and the world, making him an asset to their division. To Tommy’s dismay he was not often tasked with missions outside of the FBSA offices and labs. He grew up thinking his powers were going to help the world, and as much as they did, he wasn't getting the field action he had hoped for.
Through his years as a data analyst, he assisted in many high-profile cases, helping predict possible outcomes and identifying domestic threats. To the Superhero community he was something of a young oracle, preventing extinction level events and solving cold cases, he was a Hero to many.
Tommy frequently asked for a department transfer, he wanted to be able to work in the field and help fight crime on the front lines. He idolized Heroes who were in the spotlight fighting crime or saving the day, it is what he had always envisioned for himself. The FBSA and S.A.M. however deemed his powers more appropriate for data collection and research opportunities. Adding to Tommy's discontent working under S.A.M. the conditions in which enhanced Tommy's powers to work at the level the department needed was physically painful and exhausting work, which is a major contributing factor to why he wanted to be reassigned.
Seeking adventure Tommy decided it would be a good idea to join a group of other Heroes unannounced during a superdyne raid at a chemical factory in Kings Row where his radiation emission ate through a metal tank filled with one of the drugs massively flammable ingredients. The incredible explosion was broadcast live as the world watched, the resulting shockwave breaking windows as far as 10 miles away, leaving 4 dead and more than 2 dozen injured. The hardest part of the ordeal was the loss of one of Paragons beloved Super-powered Starlets ‘Madison Loud’, sending shockwaves of grief through the Superhero community.
Tommy maintained that it was an accident and he never meant to hurt anyone, it was obvious to everyone it was unintentional as he was unrelentingly remorseful. He immediately sought counseling and had been fully cooperative with the investigation, turning himself in immediately where he was later released under government supervision pending trial.
As a data analyst for Superpowered Activities Monitoring (SAM) division under the FBSA he was never supposed to be in the field. His powers were determined to be most useful in data collection versus field work and was stationed as such. Tommy had repeatedly requested to get transferred into a field position, even his superiors testified to his desire to work outside of the office and defending their decision to keep him stationed at S.A.M. after the trial citing it was his first time in the field without proper training and that he had been working for them nearly 10 years already without incident. They did however support a proper investigation and trial.
November 21st - Sentencing
On November 21st last year Tommy officially fell from grace, on this day he was convicted of First-Degree Arson Resulting in Injury, 4 counts of Second-Degree Manslaughter, and a slew of lesser crimes regarding his involvement in a fire and the ensuing explosion his powers ignited at a chemical factory in Kings Row that left 4 dead, and more than 2 dozen injured.
Although the families closest to those lost had publicly forgiven him the city was not so merciful. Tommy expected ramifications but was not prepared for the sentence that was bestowed upon him, they gave him 1 life sentence and an additional 45 years, seized his estate and assets to pay the millions of dollars of restitution, court fees, and criminal penalties.
After sentencing Tommy did the unthinkable and attempted to escape the court room, with his full cooperation up to this point everyone was in total shock and awe watching live as he violently broke through the restraints and a court room officer discharged her gun shooting Tommy in the shoulder. To the horror of everyone watching he erupted in a bright green radioactive explosion incinerating the entire floor of the courthouse and everyone in it.
Tommy was last seen bursting through a window shortly before the building collapsed, carrying someone as he fled. It is assumed that he fled to the Isles somewhere and has been hiding out ever since, the mystery person he carried out lead to media speculation that is still often reported on today. Several task forces have been launched in search of Tommy, working many leads coming from the Isles where people say he was spotted.
Some political groups used the footage from both incidents to push an anti-hero agenda, spreading it as propaganda that incited protests and riots. The hero community condemns the actions Tommy took in the courthouse, calling him callous and a menace. Heroes in any division of the FBSA would recognize Tommy and what he did, those in SAM would have known him personally before the incident and would’ve described him as a wonderful person and incapable of such violence before witnessing it with the world.
