Background

Doctor Assamoua has led a very shadowy life, although his influence has been felt since the 1970s. Beginning a military career in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, he was soon dissatisfied with the conditions and travelled illegally to Algeria where he volunteered for service in the Legion Etrangere, or the French Foreign Legion. Unfortunately, Assamoua joined the Legion in 1961 and was part of the regiment which sided with Algeria when it fought for independence against the French. Assamoua and the regiment he fought with were discharged and the Legion moved to France for the first time since its founding in 1831.

The disgraced regiment escaped imprisonment and travelled south, deeper into conflict-ridden Africa where they became known as the Legion. Assamoua began to study medicine, particularly in relation to the military. When the Legion were hired by the Witch Hunter during his land grab for the founding of Azambia, Assamoua used the opportunity to forge closer links with the up and coming warlord. The Legion stayed in Azambia for the first few years of establishment and Assamoua attended the university there which made use of like-minded lecturers and specialists who saw the establishment of Azambia as a chance to forge a new future for Africa.

When the Legion left Azambia they met with a series of unfortunate defeats across the globe, particularly in Indonesia and south-east Asia. Their membership dwindled and Assamoua found himself rising in rank as his superiors died around him. He decided to wrest control and took the Legion back to Cote d'Ivoire where he established a hidden base of operations, including a sophisticated medical facility.

While continuing to fight in conflicts around the world, the Legion also became known for its cybernetic expertise and Assamoua was responsible for innovative cybernetic surgery on such figures as Naga of the Assembly and other people who had been abducted for the purpose of experimentation. He worked closely with the Witch Doctor and drew resources and test subjects from Azambia.

As members of the Legion continued to be killed in far-away conflicts, Assamoua began using his knowledge of cybernetics to rebuild his soldiers, thus creating a cyborg legion. Its membership swelled during the 1990s until it could boast of a force of thirty soldiers. After investing a lot of resources in Remus' ill-fated DIYUbergene Project the Legion was reduced in number, although Assamoua managed to recruit several discontented ubers such as Medusa, Triune, Torch and Armageddon.

This new Legion severed its close ties with Remus and have since operated with a kind of neutrality which roughly translates as 'whoever has the money has our support'. Assamoua has the ear of Witch Doctor and still offers him support whenever it is needed, both overt and covert; but otherwise the future of the Legion has been hijacked by Medusa who sees the force as a way to pursue justice while also lining their pockets. Surprisingly, Assamoua has not appeared to resent Medusa's rise to power and has spent more and more of his time researching advanced cybernetics.

Personality

Doctor Assamoua has become more and more engrossed with the possibilities of cybernetics and after mostly moving away from using test subjects he spends a lot of his time working on his own body, most of which is now artificial. He prides himself on his detached morality, not allowing 'human feelings' to invade his precise decision making capabilities. He prefers his own company to that of other people and often appears uncomfortable in the company of 'biologicals'.

Quote

"I can see the potential in you. What, with a few modifications, you could be perfect."

Powers

Revenant is almost entirely machine, the result of a series of cybernetic operations over more than a decade. His arms are his most obvious modification and are able to rend most metals and, obviously, flesh and bone. His biological systems have been augmented through cybernetics granting him extraordinary physical and mental attributes, although these modifications have also resulted in giving him a susceptibility to electrical-based attacks which tend to drain his mental processing ability.

Appearance

Revenant does not look human. Beyond his obvious cyborg arms, there is something unnatural about the way he moves. Even when unmoving, his body takes on a monstrous stance. Underneath his Legion costume, Revenant's body is mostly metal and exposed wiring. While he has, in the past, managed to produce synthetic skin-like material, he no longer feels the need to hide himself behind 'biological' cloth.

Like all members of Legion, Revenant 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.
