Background

"The Templar leads Omega Force. Although he is the scion of a centuries-old line of dark wizards and conspirators devoted to absolute rule of humanity, Gareth Sinclair rejected the evil intentions of his forerunners. Instead, he uses the powers of his enchanted knight's armor and sword, his own innate magic talents, and his knightly combat skills in the cause of justice... to the dismay of Hecate and others with much invested in his bloodline. He is currently romancing his teammate Charisma. He does not yet know that she is carrying his child, or that she is Hecate's sister." ('Fatal Attractions', page 48)

Nathan Dawson has been portraying Templar for five years. He has had some experience on Broadway, but his other television work has been limited to guest roles on established series, most notably a three-week role on 'CSI: Miami' and as a patient with incurable degenerative brain disease on 'House'. Dawson is considered to be a heart throb and has appeared regularly with celebrities including young starlets. While he has fantastic on-screen chemistry with 'Charisma', the two only briefly dated in 2006 but remain close friends.

Personality

Dawson is an actor in a popular television series. He enjoys his fame and believes his acting skills are far superior to what they actually are. His inflated ego isn't really malicious, but is the result of regular interviews and features in gossip magazines. He tried working 'serious' theatre, including a short-lived production of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth', playing Banquo, but he is most comfortable playing the honorable and valiant modern knight, Templar.

Quote

"I cannot stand by and let Charisma go through this ordeal alone. Although my experience with magic is limited to my forebears, I do know that a damsel in distress can always benefit from the timely intervention of a knight in shining armor."

Powers

Templar wields a magic sword which is able to disrupt almost any magical barrier or effect, as well as working quite well against conventional opponents. His armor is enchanted and has been known to save him from a direct lightning strike as well as falls from great heights. Templar has some limited magical abilities, although they have never been clearly defined and appear to be 'vaguely intuitive', often used by writers to explain away unusual events and save the day when no other option seems open. Templar is also one of the world's greatest swordsmen.

Appearance

Templar is a conventional knight in shining armor, although his armor is lightweight for comfort. He wears a white tunic over his armor most of the time which is decorated with a prominent red cross. His armor is supposed to be enchanted and the series' special effects team have come up with a way to make it appear especially shiny.

Nathan Dawson is a handsome man with sky-blue eyes and high cheekbones thanks to his mother who was a professional model in the 1970s. He wears designer clothes, particularly favoring Armani suits with loose shirts, half unbuttoned. He has a winning smile and is always ready for the cameras.
