Project Alcatraz, as a trading card.


The Entity that became known as Project Alcatraz was born, if such a term is even applicable, as a reality that itself had sentience. It infinitely created and destroyed whatever "thoughts" it had as physical manifestations to keep itself occupied. Eventually, it became aware of other realities, and sought to gain entrance into them. It decimated many other universes before it arrived in an ancient version of our own reality. It attempted to assimilate our world into itself, as it had with many others... but one thing was different here. This world had mages and an understanding of mystical forces.

Much in the way that the Midnight Squad trapped Rularuu in the Shadow Shard, these ancient mystics were able to confine this sentient universe into a bodily form and then cast it into a reality that would serve as its prison for all eternity. Or so they had hoped...

The Project

A group of scientists at Portal Corp. had beeen tasked with mapping all of the realities that they can reach via their proprietary technology. Among these many realities is the one in which the Entity was imprisoned, and it was giving off an incredible amount energy. A group of scientists thought that this dimension might be able to be used as a source of energy for Paragon. Of course what they didn't know was what was inside... and that the energy that was being created was the Entity trying to escape.

Project Alcatraz, as the initiative was codenamed, began in earnest lead by Dr. Douglas Grant and funded by Crey. And as the project got underway it seemed to be going well. However, after all the machinery was set up, and Dr. Grant flipped the switch to start energy collection, everything went horribly wrong.

The Entity that had been trapped in an alternate reality had been given a direct path into the body of that lead scientist, and it seized that opportunity willingy. It took no time at all for it to rip Dr. Grant's mind in twain and take over his body. The scientist was able to speak one final message to the recording equipment before the Entity cemented full control. Once confined to Dr. Grant's body, it molded its physical appearance into a form harvested from Dr. Grant's mind... one he found particularly horrifying. It killed everyone else in the lab, leaving torn flesh and blood in its wake. It escaped the facility into the night to once again attempt to destroy this reality as it had tried so long ago.


Project Alcatraz has finally begun to taste the type of powers that it had before it was imprisoned into a physical body. It is now able to send Dark Energy into its surroundings as a powerful attack, confuse and damage the minds of its victims with every attack, heal itself more effectively and also has significantly increased the speed at which it makes attacks and recovers energy. And there is yet more power on the horizon!

Project Alcatraz has the ability to alter its appearance into almost anything it chooses, but it prefers appearances that are imposing as well as frightening and/or confusing to those who see it. In fact, it might be that Alcatraz does not actually alter its appearance at all, but that each viewer renders it differently depending on his or her fears.

Metagame Information

This section pertains to out-of-game information and is included for the benefit of the reader, or to include other OOC information.

Alcatraz is a character who I was very excited about for awhile, then got very frustrated with due to his endurance problems (Claws/Dark Armor). But, I loved his concept so much, that I persevered and made it through to Epic Powers and began to outfit him with some IOs designed to help with End. I succeeded, and he is one of my favorite characters to play, who is just beginning his journey into Incarnatehood (and taking advantage of some of the new powers to boot).

Alcatraz's costumes are also perhaps the most varied of any character I have ever made. He was designed to be a "cosmic horror" in the vein of Lovecraftian creatures, an entity born outside our natural universe who was imprisoned by arcane forces eons ago. It was not until science tapped into the reality in which he was imprisoned that he was able to escape, rending the mind of a scientist on that project (codenamed Project Alcatraz) he was able to breach our world and enter his body.
