    True darkness requires a certain depth of character. You're much too shallow for any kind of meaningful negativity.

    SKILLS & ABILITIES

    Satanic RitualOriginally this was a way for Michael to connect to his father and seek guidance and wisdom, however in Pandora he is cut off and any rituals he may perform in order to contact his worlds version of the Devil will only summon any local demons in Pandora. The ritual requires blood or other devices to create a pentagram shape and this includes anything from using human limbs to simply drawing in the dirt with a stick, Michael then has to speak a spell in the language of hell itself.

    Illusion ManipulationMichael is capable of creating, shaping and manipulating illusions that cause others to see, hear, touch, smell and/or taste things that do not actually exist. For those under this spell the experience is entirely real and will only end when he lifts it from them, these illusions can also be drawn over other people so someone may see an attacker and strike them when in fact it is merely a loved one. The spell cannot be continued indefinitely but he could certainly manage to maintain an illusion long enough to vacate an area and leave it interacting with the intended victim for a little while after that.

    ConjurationMichael can conjure things from nothing, he can also conjure things he wants to find. For example if he seeks a particular book he can simply seek it out and conjure it to his person. He can also create things from this conjuring that disappear once he’s done with them, he doesn’t have to take things from elsewhere he can physically manifest them into reality.

    TelekinesisEverything from the simple act of lifting an object and moving it around with his mind all the way through to telekinetic combustion. Given the opportunity Michael is capable of literally exploding someone’s head with his mind. This skill often requires him to have his hands free to guide the ability but he can lift anything ranging from a small object through to a car and as his ability develops, potentially more.

    TransmutationHe can travel instantly from one place to another and would be able to travel across the entire of Pandora in a split second, this doesn’t negate things that are blocked off to magic users, he wouldn’t be able to appear within these boundaries. He can also take someone with him too though it often helps to have knowledge of the area he is going to because the skill is very dangerous, it is entirely possible to accidentally transmutate into something like a wall or a spiked fence.

    ClairvoyanceHe refers to this skill as something like a ‘night vision of the soul’ and Michael is capable of looking into peoples minds and reading them, he particularly likes looking into the dark places of peoples minds and beyond that into the souls themselves and the very core of their nature and being. The he can find whatever darkness and secrets they have buried, these are often the darkest aspects of someones nature, keeping secrets from Michael is extremely difficult. He can also just skim read the top of someone’s mind and this skill very much depends on his opponent in Pandora. Someone with the strong ability to resist mind reading would be able to force him out with some effort and he would be entirely unable to read the mind of robotics of non-biological beings. It is also possible to trick him, if for example someone puts a spell over themselves or another that makes them forget, then he is very likely to overlook them, though he may sense something a little odd going in.

    DivinationThis is the ability to gain knowledge through indirect means such as scrying and psychometry. He can see messages, visions o the past and future and prophecies on reflective surfaces such as water or mirrors, he can also reach into these visions and draw physical objects out of them too when he combines it with his ability to conjure. His psychometry talents manifest themselves in the ability to touch an object and see it’s past, this also works on people which means he can see their past through skin to skin contact, this also works on the dead too if he can touch them then he can see how they died. Within Pandora, his ability to glimpse future events is limited by the season.

    Astral ProjectionMichael has the ability to astrally project himself into other realms such as dreamworlds or the netherworld, he can fully interact with these worlds when he is there and many of his abilities would also work there too. He can also pull people out of these realms with him too or take them with him if he needed to.

    Pyrokinesis & HellfireBeing the son of the devil has some very specific perks and Michael is capable of not only controlling and creating fire but very specifically he can create hellfire which often works in burning what cannot be burned by regular fire. He can also burn the souls out of people with it which is a death beyond death as it robs the soul of an afterlife and effectively erases the person from existence meaning there is no way to bring them back or heal them because there's not even an atom of them left in the universe.

    Concilium - Controlling Will Of OthersTo some effect, Michael can control and influence the actions, memories and thoughts of others around him, this can be anything from making someone start tap dancing spontaneously to making them ignore his presence or do things for him they otherwise would not do of their own accord. This requires him to be present and close to them so that he can suggest courses of action or manipulate a situation, this does not have to be spoken and he can do so with his mind only. It is said in his world that someone with the power of Concilium can, if given the time, break the will of any mind. In Pandora this will depend upon the will on the intended victim, if for example someone is a strong psychic and able to resist mind control then Michael would struggle. The same goes for those with abilities, the stronger the will the less influence he can exert over them.

    Vitalum Vitalis & NecromancyThe power to balance the scales of life and death. This means that Michael can bring the dead back to life and put their soul back into their body, or a body that is fit enough to house a soul. His method of doing so actually drains his own life force in the process, he quite literally gives another his own life in exchange for theirs, however due to his immortality and the sheer strength of his powers he doesn't pass out like many other witches from his world would. If he does this to a lot of people in rapid succession then he would likely grow weaker until he can recover. This power can also go the opposite direction and he can draw the life force out of someone too, he could also potentially use this to not only draw it out of one person but then grant that life force to another, effectively swapping who dies.

    Power NegationTo a relative effect Michael can negate other powers, this literally means that by sheer force of will he can nullify the effects of someone else's magic, spell or ability upon himself. For example a banishment spell meant to keep him out with sufficient will he could overcome it and break it. This skill has been changed in Pandora and he may find that this doesn’t always work and is now heavily dependent on what he is trying to negate. The bigger the power, ability or spell he tries to negate the harder for him to be successful it would be, however smaller tricks would be much easier. Thanks to Pandora he also cannot guarantee it would work every time either, it’s now become something of a risky pot-luck power.

    Weather ManipulationVery simply Michael can control the weather within his localised area. He can turn a clear bright sunny day to a cold winters day and he can control it quickly and to devastating effect. He doesn’t necessarily just make it a pretty snowy day, he can make it so cold you might freeze in an instant or so hot you start to burn or so windy it sucks the air out of the room.

    ShapeshiftingMichael’s true form is not the human being that he often presents to the world. He is known as the ‘White Faced Demon’ and those who ever see his true form would describe him as being taller, very slightly bigger than a human, with a scarred pale face with dark black eyes and dark black spidery veins across his skin. He can also age himself up if he needs to, he can make a leap of as much as ten years in one go but he cannot go backwards, it's as if his body matures automatically to whatever age he needs to be. He cannot transform magically into random animals and other things though, he is rooted around his basic form one way or another. He also cannot hide the Mark of the Beast that is behind his ear which is a kind of scarification tattoo of the number '666'.

    Enhanced StrengthHe’s by no means superman but he is far stronger than even a very strong human, he can easily rip a person apart, effortlessly thrust his hand into their chests and rip out their hearts, easily lift them off their feet. He wouldn’t however be able to go around throwing cars and he has no formal fight training either.

    InvulnerabilityMichael can resist death, though he can be hurt and injured and it takes a while for him to get over it, especially depending on the form of death itself. A single knife wound that kills him instantly is far easier to recover from than multiple bullets that rip him apart for example, though the latter takes perhaps only five minutes or so for him to revive. The process is quite simple, he quite literally reverses the effects, if he has bled out then his blood returns to his body and his wounds heal, etc. If however he was to lose a limb it's doubtful he would regrow it unless it was re-attached surgically and consequently dismembering him would put him into a kind of death stasis where he would neither be fully dead nor alive because he wouldn't be able to heal properly.

    Knowledge & LearningMichael's abilities are constantly growing and expanding, he's like a sponge absorbing everything from the world around him. He is not limited by the magic he has currently learned and it is entirely possible his abilities would stretch even further with the right exposure and tuition in abilities outside his world. Currently as it stands the magic he knows, he knows because it was what was taught and shown him in his own world, most of his abilities come from a kind of necessity so it's entirely possible that if he were to learn more in Pandora and find those skills useful and necessary in a situation he would be able to develop these new abilities too.

    WEAKNESSES

    MagicPandora will be filled with all sorts of demon-based magic that simply doesn’t exist in Michael’s world and he is vulnerable to anything specifically designed to cause harm to demonic entities, though obviously effects would be negated somewhat by his abilities. Nevertheless if something is designed to keep demons out or there are specific weapons from other worlds that are designed to inflict damage upon a demon, he would absolutely be affected by all of these things.

    His abilities are also just as relative to his opponents in Pandora. People who have the ability to negate things such as blocking mind control or masters of specific powers that are far more large scale than his own are all going to be able to affect Michael in ways he’s never had to deal with before.

    SupernaturalThere are also people in Pandora with supernatural abilities he hasn’t encountered before, people who can look upon his true form and immediately out him from his ‘Warlock’ lie and see him for the monster he truly is. There are also a lot of weapons in Pandora that could do him some damage, not to mention specifically supernatural people with abilities that could specifically target his species.

    Holy ArtefactsMichael can touch holy artefacts and look upon them however they do hurt him to differing degrees and he would rather not, he has the same issue with christian texts being read aloud, they give him a headache and hurt his ears. Holy water wold certainly hurt him too though it's likely it would just give him a rash, like a nettle sting.

    Dismemberment & PandoraDespite his considerable abilities, Michael can be dismembered and stopped, he can also be killed and though he comes back after a short while, the fact that he is immobile during this process certainly could put him at a disadvantage. He is also just as vulnerable to Prometheus Dust effects as anyone else is.

    SchoolingMichael has never attended a regular school, he as home tutored and it wasn't extensive, lets just say maths and english literature are not his strong suits and neither are the sciences. He's not an idiot by any means and he can certainly read and write but it could be a lot better considering the age he would appear to be. He has some learning to do.

    FREEFORM

    T H E . B E G I N N I N G . O F . T H E . E N D

    People always say there is good and evil in the world and that good people outnumber the evil, or better yet that there is no such thing as real evil. That it is all simply choices we choose to make and some people, due to their environment or a defect in the brain make the wrong choices. That condemning people with a word like ‘evil’ absolves them of their behaviour somehow. They’re wrong. There is evil in the world, the purest of all evils and he looks like an angel with the bluest eyes and the sweetest smile, after all even Lucifer himself was an angel once and one of God’s favourite’s too, it stands to reason his son would be born in such an image.

    The thing is that everyone, given the right pressures or stimulus, has the capacity to be an evil motherfucker.

    That was how Michael Langdon came into being. A concentrated cesspool of evil deeds piling on top of each other at the very mouth of hell itself was his birthplace, he was the product of a rape, the final act in a theatre of tragedy, pain, suffering, hurt and misery. Born under such circumstances how could Michael Langdon have become anyone else? No matter how hard he fought?

    His grandmother was an alcoholic failure, the figure he saw as his real mother was a Satanist, his father was the devil himself, his guiding light through it all, an ever illusive voice to lead the way, and when he finally found his place amongst the Hawthorne School For Exceptional Young Men the most powerful beings in the world mistook him for being on their side. Better still, they nurtured him and they presented him his enemies on a silver platter.

    W H E R E . I S . M Y . M I N D ?

    He knew something was coming he just didn’t know what. It was that way sometimes, he could see things but they were unclear, uncertain, his pure faith in his purpose kept him on his path though, even when it felt like all was lost. He supposed he could break out of the jail cell, it wouldn’t be hard to slide the jail cell door out of the way but something stayed his hand, told him to wait and his time would come or he hoped so anyway. At the same time he knew what was to come would take him away from her. His Ms Mead. He was going to miss her until he could see her again.

    He tucked his hands under his cheek and felt the pressure points of the little cot bed under his shoulder and his hip, as though allowing himself to feel this bodies pain he could drown the strange feeling of loss he felt in his heart. He’d never really felt that before, it was different to the love he had for Grandma and for the ghosts at the house. It was the same pull on his heart that had made him stick those knives into the butcher, to defend her, protect her. He knew nobody could actually pin it on him, there was no DNA, no evidence, no finger prints, he’d never touched the knives and the man shouldn’t have been rude to her. He got what was coming to him, just like everyone would in time. But still...he hadn't really meant to hurt anyone.

    Michael caught the edge of a lock of hair between his fingers and mindlessly fiddled with it where he lay. How long did he have to wait? How long until the next step? How long before- he heard the voice break into his thoughts suddenly. Wake up, someone here to see you. This was it. This was the moment. He rolled over and looked over the strangely dressed man and he played his part in this blind pilgrimage of his life. The moment the man revealed he was a Warlock, Michael knew what he had to do, where he had to go, how the next stage in the plan would unfurl. So he was surprised by the mans skills, he grinned with childish glee as he was walked out of jail and once Ariel was out of sight, he made those who had incarcerated him pay in blood. Was there any other way?

    W E L C O M E . T O . T H E . B R O T H E R H O O D

    Friends were a strange thing to balance, they required that Michael cared and he could care so very much...just not about these people, they required him to participate and laugh and joke and be a real boy and part of him loved it even if he knew how this would probably end. But he itched to take the plan further and so behind his smiles he focused hard and he clapped his new friends at the Hawthorne School For Exceptional Young Men on the back and he became one of them. He charmed them and dazzled them, all of them, including the teachers until they were under his spell. Save one. But these things could be dealt with, sticky people deserve sticky ends. That's why he had a mother like Ms Mead. She'd know what to do.

    Every day, every lesson, every trial and challenge he felt his powers expanding and growing beyond their previous limitations. They grew so strong the council of Warlocks began to whisper of a mythical Alpha, the male equivalent of The Supreme amongst the witches. It was so very hard not to laugh but Michael managed and he delighted them by hopping through their hoops and ticking their checklist one after the other.

    It was almost sad how easy it was, in fact the best part of it was the sheer fucking depth of the misdirect. Ariel was so smug, so superior and full of his own grandiosity as he made his fancy proclamations, he had no idea what he was doing. What a fool.

    And when the time came, Michael jumped through the Witches hoops too, he even jumped through the hoops they invented just specifically for him and he blew them away. And just as he was about to claim his victory over the misguided witches and wizards of his world it was all taken away from him. He was snatched away by vines to Pandora.
