Mastermind Monday - Avarialus, Fallen Gunslinger

I know Mastermind Monday posts are few and far between. Its not that I'm not in a supers mood, I've been watching and reading all sorts of supers things, I just haven't had many original characters come to mind.

This is a character that's been in my head for years, though I've only recently fleshed him out more. Avarialus is the angelic father of Wandering Nephil and grandfather of Kid Nephil. Avarialus is an ancient angelic warrior, however during the mid 19th century he became embroiled in a plot to overthrow Heaven and was turned into a mortal and banished to earth. The stats below represent him during that period. I tried to keep his stats similar to some of the western heroes in the DC Adventures Universe book (such as Batlash). If you want his stats angelic stats just use Wandering Nephil's stats and bump him up a 2 Power Levels.

Also, I have a theme song for Avarialus, Bobaflex - Bury Me With My Guns On.

Daniel Avery/Avarialus

The gunslinger, Daniel Avery, did not begin his existence as a mortal. A warrior angel of the Hosts, he fought for centuries on the side of truth and justice. This earned him many enemies.

During the 1860's these forces conspired with an ambitious archangel, Neros to destroy the warrior. Neros and his demonic allies slaughtered a party of Earthbound angels and framed Avarialus for their murder. For this supposed crime he was stripped of his angelic essence and cast down into the mortal realms (specifically the American southwest).

The fallen angel would not have survived long if not for the intervention of the imp, Eti. The demon (in the form of a coyote), warned the warrior of an ambush planned by demonic rivals (the same rivals that allied with Neros). Eti then lead the man to an ancient angelic relic hidden in the desert.  The item, an ancient weapon, took the form of modern weapons when the former angel reached for them, a pair of twin colt revolvers.

With the imp's help, Avarialus (adopting the name Daniel Avery) now wanders the west as a bounty hunter, serving the cause of righteousness, attempting to thwart the earthly schemes of Neros.
