Base of Operations: Vibora Bay, LA. USA; Millennium City, MI. USA
Group Affiliation: Squadron Supreme
Motivation: Unwanted power
Abilities: The subject has displayed a variety of elemental powers, which he uses both offensively and defensively. Although the extent of his powers is still unknown, they are quite varied – Le Reaux has been seen creating localized gale force 5 hurricanes as well as projecting intense heat and cold. He has also been seen channeling lightning bolts. Le Reaux has also displayed a limited ability to control the proportions of part or all of his body, altering its height and girth at will.
Vulnerabilities:The subject was a prisoner of VIPER for an extended period of time and subjected to a intense psychological conditioning, remnants of which may exist in Le Reaux’s subconscious. Due to genetic manipulation, Le Reaux’s body has taken on a semi-reptilian look, often hiding his appearance under a hood and cowl. UNTIL profilers believe that his negative self-image could be exploited if necessary.
Threat Level: Gamma
Le Reaux was born into one of the most prominent and prestigious families in of Vibora Bay. By the age of seventeen, he was well on his way to graduating high school with honors and had received scholarships from several Ivy League universities. His future was set.
Then, he was kidnapped by VIPER.
Notified that they would never see their son again unless a five million dollar ransom was not paid, his parents complied without involving the proper authorities. However, as soon as the ransom had been paid, his captors, in a cruel display, released a video over a number of social media platforms of Le Reaux apparently being put to death.
What VIPER had in fact done was inject him with some recombinant DNA in an attempt to mold him into one of their mindless minions. For as yet unknown reason, the process ultimately failed.
For three years, Sebastian underwent intense training and was under constant scrutiny, biding his time until an opportunity arose for him to escape. UNTIL experts speculate that the emotional and psychological stress Le Reaux suffered while letting on that he was under their thrall would certainly have had an adverse affect on his mental state.
For nearly five years, Le Reaux undertook field work for VIPER around the world but never managed to escape until a small contingent of superheroes led by the Shroud (UNTIL Superhuman Registry No.: 425252) freed him while on a mission on Monster Island.
Free from VIPER, Le Reaux has dedicated his life to helping others.
