Background

Pheron had always been an oddity among his people, the gaseous entities who danced among the spectral discharges of the Shandress Nebula. He enjoyed the company of the solid races, and actively sought out new experiences among the "ephemerals" whenever they ventured to his home system. To be candid, he found them fascinating... they were more driven and exciting than his own people, whose detachment from the rest of the UCW he had come to consider problematic.

When the UCW put out a call for members to join Stellar Shield, he pondered how a gaseous being such as himself might be able to effectively participate in such a venture. Collaborating with the scientist-diplomats who served as his people's liason to the U.C.W., he had a containment suit manufactured which would permit him to engage in more meaningful interactions among the solid races. Armored and ready, he went before his people to plead his case. It would not be sufficient for him to merely walk among the other races... to join Stellar Shield he must possess sufficient might to defend his people and the other member races of the U.C.W.

After some deliberation, the folk of the nebula concurred with his stated goal. A champion among the other races could only benefit them, and it was their duty to contribute to the collective whole as a member state of the U.C.W. The minor abilities his race possessed in manipulating and generating gravitational fields would be greatly enhanced, through the combined focus of his species, then transferred to his person. This would cause some inconvenience, but no long term loss... though no other member of the species could possess such formidable might while he wielded it. Still, he would be a truly formidable adversary for the foes of the people of the Nebula.

Personality
Venturing forth into the U.C.W., Pheron applied for and was admitted into the Stellar Shield. He takes his duties very seriously, and will do his utmost to live up to the responsibilities that have been entrusted to him.

Powers

As Nebula, the champion of his people, Pheron has been gifted with the combined might of his race's gravitic manipulation abilities. This gives him tremendous power to create, shape, or alter gravitational forces which his long experiences have granted him considerable skill with. As a result, he can create gravitational effects ranging from benign to incredibly destructive with but a thought. However, if forced to abandon his containment suit a substantial portion of his powers must be expended in maintaining his bodily cohesion outside of the nebula, massively reducing his effectiveness.

The armored containment suit he wears is very durable, and has an integrated synaptic/reflex acceleration component that greatly increases his reaction speed and coordination. Additionally, the suit has some minor sensory enhancements permitting the user to see into the infrared portion of the light spectrum, and will polarize to protect the vision of it's wearer should external sources of illumination move into harmful ranges. The suit also restricts his ability to interact with his environment in his natural vaporous state, rendering him unable to smell or taste while within the sealed containment unit.

Appearance

Pheron is a swirling mass of dark and luminescent gasses, in which lights glow and fade intermittently. He is inherently formless, but to permit greater ease of interaction wears an armored containment suit. The suit is composed of transparent plasteel and duralloy composite, shining metal and translucent panels (which reveals his swirling, gaseous, luminous nature within). If the suit is damaged, he will quickly leak out into the surrounding environment. In either case, Pheron is a nearly unique sight among the people of the U.C.W., as his reclusive people do not travel to other worlds and few can tolerate the gas-laden reaches of space they call home with comfort.
