Bio:

Description: Adam Lebovitz was recruited by MEDUSA after graduating from Rutgers University Adam was assigned to the Robotics Division as a junior lab assistant. A MEDUSA Exploratory Team investigating a recently dicovered underground cavern in the mountains of India returned with many strange items and texts. Classified as TOP SECRET/SCIOP and given the Code Name PARIAH (Named after the only hieroglyphs that the exploratory team could initially translate which was “They who have been cast out of this world) all the artifacts were studied by the various science divisions at MEDUSA’s disposal (Historians, Linguists, etc.) Some texts and scrolls were eventually deciphered but many remained a mystery. One of the main items, an rune encrusted metal sarcophagus held what looked like an ancient robot. The sarcophogus was given to the robotics division to be analyzed. One night Adam other lab assistants were gathering data by subjecting the sarcophogus various tests. Afterwards it emitted a sickly green glow and an alien robot-like form emerged and attacked. Each person grasped was locked in it’s gaze and subsequently absorbed in gruesome fashion. It grabbed Adam and stared into his soul, piercing his psyche. Adam’s body was absorbed molecule by molecule while they were locked in a battle of wills. Adam lost the physical battle, his body absorbed by the thing but his immortal soul found the strength to overcome the alien mind and become it’s master but at a price. Subconsciously he fights with his alien host constantly keeping it in check. Only while in the strange alien sarcophogus (Necron stasis field) can he gain the mental respite he needs to stay sane. No longer a man, not a machine, unable to resume a normal life he has become the namesake of project PARIAH.

About the Necrons: The Necrons are an alien race acient beyond imaging, are awakening from thei sixty-million year dormancy to plague the living once more. Immortal metallic warriors have risen from their stasis-tombs, intent on preying on the teeming species that is humanity. Their miraculous technology was far in advance of any contemporary equivalent long before mankind had even come into existence. Shrouded in mythic reference and lost in mankind historical references, the Necrons have been on Earth from the beginning. Once a proud race whose empire spanned the stars, the Necrons now exist purely to serve their omniscient masters. Inescapably bound to the malignant will of the ancient dieties that granted them immortality. The Necrons specialize in random lightning-quick strikes, slaughtering their prey and disappearing without a trace. The purpose of these attacks is unknown, but their total and devastating efficiency is without question. The Necrons have no dealings with any other species whatsoever. To the Necrons, each population is another target to be harvested at the whim of their masters. To their gods, humans are mere cattle, at best pawns for their inscrutable plans, at worst prey to satisfy their unquenchable thirst. The menace of the Necron expansion grows with each passing year and will soon reach catastrophic proportions. This could spell the doom of man, for the Necron threat nestles like a cancer within the heart of humanity itself.

Cryptic scroll deciphered by MEDUSA Linguists: THE BANSHEE’S CALL SHALL WAKE THE DEAD; WHEN DARK PORTENTS WAX NIGH HEED THEM AS THE COUNSEL OF A SEER, OR A FATHER THE YNGIR, WHO HAVE SLEPT SINCE THE BIRTH OF CHAOS SHALL CRAWL ONCE MORE FROM THEIR TOMBS, THIRSTING FOR WARMTH THE WAR IN HEAVEN SHALL BE AS NOTHING TO THEIR VENGEANCE FOR THE SONS OF ASURYAN, FEW IN NUMBER, CANNOT STAND AGAINST THEM AND THE EYE OF ISHA SHALL DIM, CLOSING FOR ETERNITY SUCH A GENTLE GODDESS CANNOT WITNESS SUCH ATROCITIES AS THEY SHALL WREAK THE SOULLESS ONES SHALL BE THE HARBINGERS OF THE DARK FATE THEN SHALL COME THE LIVING DEAD, THE PROGENY THEN THE THRISTING ONES, THE FOREVER DAMNED AND THE GALAXY SHALL RUN RED AS THE BLOOD OF ELDANESH THE VAUL MOON SHALL BRING FORTH THE DRAGON THE MASTER OF DEATH SHALL DRINK DEEP FROM ISHA’S EYE THAT WHICH LIES OUTSIDE WILL BE DRAWN TO THE HARVEST AND THE JACKAL GOD SHALL TURN BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER THE FOUR SHALL TAKE THEIR PLACE AMONGST THE STARS THEIR LEGIONS ASCENDANT, UNSTOPPABLE AS THE NIGHT A DEADLY SHROUD SHALL FALL ACROSS THE SPIRIT AND THE GALAXY SHALL MOURN
