Background

Chandrashekhar was a graduate student at Oxford University when he was caught in an illegal laboratory accident which left three of his associates dead and over a million pounds of property damage. Chandrashekhar, however, was never implicated in the accident because the intense radiation triggered his ubergene which manifested itself as a 'hiccup' in time. After regaining consciousness, he realised that the world around him was moving so much slower than it should be, and so although security had arrived they were unable to apprehend or identify him because, to them, he was moving at lightning speed.

Over the next year, Chandrashekhar completed his doctorate and explored his newly found abilities. He was always an ambitious man and saw his powers as an opportunity to gain fame and a sense of superiority over the common criminals which infested the streets of London. He became Zone and began a career as a superhero.

As luck would have it, he met and fell in love with Charm, another super hero. They met as Charm and Zone in the streets of London, and again as Chandrashekhar Lokesh and Bindiya Indrajit at a party. Both times they felt the chemistry, although neither was aware of the other's secret life.

Bindiya was based in India, but took a month off work and spent time with Chandrashekhar. She managed to convince him to return to India when she resumed her job. The pair boarded a plane unaware that it was the target of the terrorist group known as Fatwa. During the flight, Fatwa attacked and disabled the plane sending it plummeting into the ocean.

Bindiya managed to slow the descent, showing her telekinetic powers for the first time; but it was Chandrashekhar who managed to slow the plane enough for a safe landing. Both Bindiya and Chandrashekhar realised that each had been withholding important information about each other, but the secret brought them even closer together and they married within the year.

Chandrashekhar moved to Kolkata and began working for the government, while Bindiya continued to fly part-time. Both of them also enjoyed their adventurous lives as Charm and Zone and began to receive acclaim across Eastern India.

The Assembly invited them to join and they agreed, although Bindiya has reservations and doesn't like the way her husband seems to be becoming more ambitious the more time he spends with Fusion.

Personality

Chandrashekhar is extremely happy in life. He has a beautiful wife, an exciting job and the respect he has been craving his entire life. Fusion has become his prime role model and he will do anything to please the co-leader of The Assembly. At times he feels inadequate as a hero because his powers are mostly defensive, but he has recently become more calculated and cold-blooded in his outlook possibly to compensate.

Quote

“Take your time. I certainly am.”

Powers

Zone is able to slow down the passage of time in a small field approximately 15m radius from himself. Those within the field find it difficult to move, almost as if they are frozen in time. Zone is able to manipulate this field so that he can choose who is effected and who is not. His body has also adapted to his frequent use of the time fields, so that his body is more dense and his life span has increased.

Appearance

Chandrashekhar is an attractive and imposing man with wavy black hair and a well defined moustache and beard. He is powerfully built and athletic, with a good posture which exudes confidence. As Zone, he wears an armoured costume which is white with green boots, short black sleeves and belt. He also wears a mask to conceal his identity.
