Ourus was born and raised upon the world of Sadora up to the age of 16
of their years. His era was that of Earth's 2560, and it is not documented just where. The
Sadorans were peaceful in nature - their last war had ended almost 150 years before. To
preserve their peaceful lifestyle, the Sadorans by policy banished anyone who had the
potential to disrupt their society. Ourus is one of the banished.
|In addition to his silver hair and eyes, Ourus is remarkable
for the tattoo on his torso, displaying a half-emptied hourglass, and another tattoo, this
one a shimmering raindrop (obviously a drop of "acid rain"), etched from his
upper right shoulder to his right pectoral muscle. A third tattoo was added later: that of
a shattered lightbulb.
Keeping with the theme of chromium silver attire, Ourus shifts
from style to style, sometimes donning flashy kimonos, sometimes even a Wall Street
business suit. What matters is that his garb shines with the gleam of silver.

Ourus has an ever-shifting mentality. When he first appeared in the
Supernatural Realms, he was very kind, but he has grown more bitter in nature over the
short period he has resided here. He is a member of the Garramonde Familia and employed by
them, and his goals, he says, are "to grow in his family, and in usefulness, and to
becomes what his mentors wish him to be."
Ourus at 21
Ourus left the Garramondes, feeling he was less a
family member and more a tool, a weapon, in their arsenal. He sought an actual family -- a
home -- with Vampire and Kin, hoping that they could sate his eternal longing for
friendship, companionship, and that feeling every human knows at some time in his life:
During the testing of his abilities, Ourus managed to defeat Dr.
Static and AngleDemon in spar situations. He was also challenged on several occasions by
Phoenix Lord Josh who, by the time they finished, had come out on the bottom end of the
But with this new-found fame, Ourus was destined to suffer again
the fate he had feared since he was a child of 16: he found himself once more classified
as a weapon.
Ourus vowed his life to protect a very pretty girl called Shadow,
the adopted daughter of his friend Raksasha. On several occasions this vow brought him
face to face with Josh or Exodus, each a very powerful fighter, yet Ourus survived to
marry Shadow on the night of July 3, 1997. Then, tragically, his only reason for living
any longer was cut short. Shadow was slain in attempt to thwart Ourus from his promise to
Now driven two ways, chased by assassins, on a quest to destroy
the killers of his only love, Ourus was torn between many worlds -- quickly growing insane
with each pulsating beat of his red heart. And, to Ourus's horror, the one place where he
had felt "safe" was perhaps turning against him, for rumor had that V&K,
like the Garramondes, had placed him in the ranks of "assets," again giving him
the feeling of being an inanimate object, agitating his psychotic nature still more.
Ourus has the ability to manipulate photons in one or more beams of light to change
properties and/or effects. He can manipulate the motion of particles in the air about him
to create currents or pressures to his advantage. (This power reacts subconsciously.) He
can also manipulate the production and release of hormones and other such chemicals within
an organic body to produce a given result.
He has a keen accuracy with projectile weapons, which he often uses as opposed to his
natural abilities. Originally a Beretta 920 was his weapon of choice, but after losing
this in a freak accident, he turned to a Colt Anaconda .44 magnum, a $1,700 weapon. Later
he became skilled with a Neo City Entropy Device, NeoTeric crystal, Psionic Negator, and
Electro-Magnetic Pulse cannon. These latter devices are very rarely used.
Ourus arrived here an innocent, and was too easily swayed by outside influences.
Partial ignorance of his own abilities limited him at first. Then, too, strange earth
emotions puzzled him, and many doings upon this plane posed conundrums to his
abstract-thinking mind. On many occasions, though, he proved to be brighter than one might
But after he "hung up his blades" at the request of his wife Shady, and she
was slaughtered by Exodus in an attempt to draw him into Exodus' forces, Ourus lost the
ability to control his emotions. He rejected Exodus and reclaimed his blades. He began
suffering from insomnia, carrying a feudal-age Japanese katana with engraving of a burning
dragon, and wearing an elbow-length sleeved, chrome and black silk shirt, and a silk
Ourus, bereft of his wife, went spitting mad.
