The CROSS & SWORD Augmented File Karudo Real Name: Hayden Scott Subject’s blood, like the other Augmented, has been contaminated by the Mist (Shæluthrös). Subject has now developed animalistic and predatorial traits. Subject’s main alias, “Karudo”, derives from the Japanese word “Kariudo”, which translates to “the hunter”. Subject can shapeshift into many different forms but appears to have two main forms- “Karudo” form, and “the hunter” form. While in Karudo form, subject’s torso is a cross between a lion and a gorilla’s, has a thick mane of hair, a cross between a crocodile and human face, lion-like legs, snake-like tail, and large bat-like wings. While in “the hunter” form, subject dons a black cloak, large angelic wings, and brandishes two daggers, a compound bow, and an arsenal of arrows along with many other weapons.
Stress- if subject is significantly stressed, subject will lose concentration and revert to regular human form.
Powers/ Abilities: Transformation- subject can transform into any creature or combination of creatures in order to battle enemies.
Adaptation- Subject, like certain animals, can adapt to new environments, environmental changes, or any possible scenario- such as growing gills and webbed feet and fingers for long, deep swims, night vision in the dark, and similar.
Enhanced physical capabilities- subject has developed increased speed, strength, and agility while in Karudo form, as well as “the hunter” form.
Enhanced senses- subject has increased hearing, sight, smell, taste and feeling.
Leech-effect- while in a leech form, subject can siphon off enemies’ abilities.
Combustion Breath- The breath that Karudo exhales is not only carbon dioxide, but also is a mix of acetylene, ammonia, hydrogen, propane, propylene and methane, all of which are flammable gases. If he breaths towards an open flame, he will amplify the flame and start a roaring fire. The crosssbearers at the CROSS & SWORD have fashioned Karudo a lip mounted lighter, which he can turn on by pressing buttons on his palms that are connected to the lighter by an exoskeleton that stretches to any length or size. This allows Karudo to set multiple enemies on fire by simply breathing strong wind breath in their direction.
Roar: Karudo can unleash a frightening and devastating roar, which can be heard for up to 10 miles around him, shatter glass, and can summon the animals of the earth to him. It also has sonic soundwave and shockwave capabilities, as well as echolocation.
