Background

Appearing in the aftermath of the 1986 Lake Nyos disaster, Castellan assisted with the evacuation of hundreds of villagers. 1.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide smothered the area around Lake Nyos for 20km, killing 1800 villagers and 3500 livestock. Of those who survived, many suffered respiratory and lung damage or paralysis. Castellan was hailed a hero for saving many lives and from that day on he was a regular figure in Cameroon.

He loved the attention and believed he had found his calling.

Years before, Samuel Mboma had tried to find a place amongst the military but he found the discipline and monotony too oppressive so he left and took up a coaching position in the seaport of Douala. He maintained his physical training and made friends with a retired Englishman, Bartleby Pritchard. Pritchard eventually revealed to Samuel that he had been the Golden Age hero, Castellan, and eagerly showed Samuel his most treasured belonging: a shield bearing the Union Jack and supposedly made of an almost indestructible metal. Pritchard saw in Samuel a hero's spirit and coaxed the young coach to take on the shield as his own. Together they forged the identity of Castellan again, draping Samuel in the colours of his own country, Cameroon. When the disaster at Lake Nyos was revealed, both Samuel and Pritchard saw it as a sign to reveal the new hero.

Pritchard continued to help with Castellan's life after the disaster and the two men share a house in Douala where they concealed a secret 'Hero's Room'.

In 2002, Castellan was captured and nearly killed by agents of the Sons of Set. He was tortured to the brink of insanity and manipulated into betraying Pritchard, who was murdered. Castellan vanished, but was replaced by the cruel and corrupt Induna.

Since returning to the scene, Induna has become head of the Sunset Cartel and works for the financial gain of the Sons of Set. He is responsible for the security of the organisation, and has developed a thirst for the illicit goods and services he helps to traffic to and from the Americas.

Personality

Induna was once a heroic figure in Africa, but since being manipulated and corrupted he has developed a dark side which has truly consumed him. He is loyal to the woman who corrupted him: Nepythys. To impress her he feels that he needs to show his power through the subjugation of others. He is cruel and unnecessarily violent when it comes to those who cross the Cartel.

There is nothing left of his Castellan personality. Some have tried to appeal to remnants, but all they ever achieve is disappointment. Induna punishes those who seek to reform him by pressing the advantage.

Quote

"I have been given a second chance and I will not waste time trying to judge the morality of this world. You can have that uncertainty. I am content to take what I want, all in the name of serving my new Lord."

Powers

Induna has been cybernetically enhanced, including the addition of a cyborg arm, legs, right eye and a major section of his torso. These enhancements provide him with a greater degree of resistance to injury as well as superhuman strength in one arm and the ability to see into ultraviolet and infrared spectrums. Induna is a highly trained hand-to-hand combatant and is especially ruthless in combat.

Appearance

Induna is a scarred man. He wears a black and magenta body armour, highlighted with yellow and red disks. His left arm is covered, to conceal his cyborg limb, while his right one is bare. He wears a mask which covers his head and has a distinctive cybernetic eye which glows red. Out of costume, his cybernetics become apparent. His right arm is a silver metal, as are his legs and sections of his chest, spreading from his right side near the shoulder. He wears his hair short but has grown a beard.
