Shard controls the ability to convert raw silica such as sand into a bio-glass forms, which he then projects from his hands.The bio-glass later breaks down into it’s original raw sand form. Victim accounts include a wide range of descriptions including simple lacerations to the complete evisceration of the body, to the grinding of tissue, making identification impossible via visual means. All victims share a common evidence trail that includes sand particulate matter upon their persons.
Little is known of the orphan that became the killer known as Shard. Records during his early years are scarce but many eyewitness allow for a reasonable accounting. Shard was suspect in a number of suspicious deaths of his fellow orphans early in his life, culminating in his escape in his later teen years to live on the streets. From that point, Shard developed a reputation as the assassin to go to from street-level to assassination, so long as the pay rewarded. Resolute in his ability to execute any request, Shard developed a reputation for being especially ruthless with his contracts, including a level of unrequested torture of his victims.
