Background

Jean-Evariste Colbert began his working life in the Les Princes Barriere de Cannes in 1982, but began to want more as he grew older. Even as he grew more restless he remained physically the same, and six years passed without him growing a day older. He came across an Italian priest during this time of crisis and through evening discussions and casual meetings, the priest convinced Jean-Evariste to pursue his dream of becoming a lawyer. The priest was actually Cardinal Syn, but their meeting was entirely innocent. It was only later when Syn discovered Jean-Evariste was an uber that he began to manipulate the French man into an intricate web of control.

Jean-Evariste graduated from the Sorbonne and embarked upon a career in law, while also becoming more aware of his uber abilities. During the trial of a notorious public agitator, shots were fired from the public gallery, and Jean-Evariste was hit in the shoulder. In the confusion, Jean-Evariste discovered that he was unharmed, and that in addition to his slow aging, he was also growing incredibly strong and durable. He focussed his spare time on developing these skills and in the late 1990s he was contacted by Monsieur Blanc, a mysterious man who identified himself as a philanthropist in a sensitive government position who wanted to help France, but wasn't willing to compromise his position.

Monsieur Blanc organised Trinity, a team of three heroes who would be financed by Blanc while safeguarding the values and citizens of France. Blanc contacted the team when he had valuable information which often led to missions, but otherwise allowed them to go about their own mission to fight crime.

Personality

Jean-Evariste has come to enjoy life, knowing that he has a long time ahead of him in which to experience the joys and sights of the world. While he still manages to put himself first, he has dedicated significant amounts of his time to helping the poor in pro bono legal work, as well as his work as Bastille. He considers his role as Bastille as being equally important as being an attorney, although he manages to get more satisfaction out of his superheroics than his legal ones.

Powers

Bastille possesses an expanded lifespan, and ages very slowly. In addition to this primary uber ability, Bastille is very strong, able to lift over 3,000kg and is practically invulnerable to conventional weaponry. He has recently been able to tap into reservoirs of energy which heighten his strength and durability even further, although he can only manage to maintain these levels for one minute, several times a day. In addition to strength and durability, Bastille is also able to hold his breath for long period of time.

Appearance

Jean-Evariste was also a large man, but as his ubergene began activating, his weight increased so that he now stands at nearly 2m tall and 197kg. As Bastille, he wears a mask to hide his true identity so he can continue working in the courts, and a blue and silver costume. Out of costume he wears relaxed suits and casual attire.
