Background

Patrizio Sismondo was the eldest of five children and after his father ran away with his mistress, it was up to Patrizio to maintain his family's lifestyle. He left school and focused his energy on work. Unfortunately, working in a tailor's shop was not exciting enough for the young Sismondo and he soon began working for the local mafia, assisting with collections and later as a stand-over man. By the time his younger sister Diamante became a famous scientist, Patrizio had enmeshed himself within the crime families of Naples. He maintained a close relationship with his family and secured their futures, but in exchange he had spent time in prison and was constantly on the run from rival families.

When Diamante was killed Patrizio was in prison, but through a series of manipulative rumours he heard of her demise and blamed her death of the famous Neanderthal scientist, Professor Grak. While he waited for his release, Sismondo began to plan his revenge. Grak was an impossible target - a cave man in the modern world. At first Sismondo thought he would simply shoot the cave man in the back of the head, but then he began receiving messages from a mysterious woman who offered him more insightful ways to seek revenge.

The mysterious woman was Medusa, a former Dawnstar, who also sought Grak's death. Upon his early release (thanks to political maneuverings from Remus) Sismondo was met by Medusa, who refused to mention her name, and given a high tech laser with which to penetrate Grak's cold energy field and kill him.

Sismondo found Grak in London and struck. In the heated melee which followed, Sismondo's weapon backfired and vaporised his entire arm and Grak easily captured him. Sismondo was sent back to prison. Everything seemed like such a failure, but then Sismondo's prison van was attacked and Medusa led a rescue team to extract the injured Italian.

Sismondo was taken to Africa where he was given over to Dr Assamoua, a leading expert in cybernetics. While Medusa and her team attacked the Dawnstars, Sismondo was left in the care of the mysterious doctor and underwent a series of experimental operations. At the end of his time with Dr Assamoua, Sismondo had lost most of his human body. It had been replaced with invasive cybernetic systems chief among them being a powerful gauntlet gun on his right forearm.

Rather than be horrified, Sismondo saw his transformation as an equaliser. Now he was on the same level as his enemy, Professor Grak the Nordkapp Man.

Personality

Sismondo is a small time crook who was manipulated into attacking Grak. Since being easily defeated, Sismondo has been remodelled into a cyborg warrior, although he still remains a small time crook. He is petty and cruel and looks down at most people, examining them for their faults and weaknesses. The one driving goal in his life is revenge on Grak the Nordkapp Man.

Triune gave him the name Delatus which means the Accuser. Rather than take it as a joke, Sismondo has seen the name as his new vocation in life.

Quote

"Extinction looks good on you, cave man!"

Powers

Delatus has been modified with cybernetics. His physical attributes have been boosted as well as his resistance to injury and extreme temperatures. Through a series of thefts and modification, Delatus has accrued a range of gadgets including a hovercraft disk which he flies on into battle; an anti-freeze ray which he uses chiefly to disable the Nordkapp Man; and a personal force field generator. Delatus' main weapon, however, is his gauntlet gun which is capable of electric charges as well as blinding flares.

Appearance

Tall and wiry with a dangerous look in his eyes, Patrizio Sismondo always looked like a shifty criminal. After his defeat at the hands of Grak, Sismondo's right arm was severed. With the assistance of Revenant Sismondo's body has been rebuilt and remodelled. His missing arm has been replaced with a cybernetic weapon and much of his torso has gradually been replaced with cybernetics as well. In costume he appears mostly human, but when exposed his body is covered in metal and wiring.

Like all members of Legion, Delatus wears a highly resistant black body armour with dark grey pads on the legs, shoulders, boots and gloves. His mask has a stylised skull motif with green eyes (infrared visor), and this symbol is repeated on the shoulder pads. There is a Legion symbol on the left side of his chest: a lightning-like 'L' in yellow.
