|~ The Beast to Cole MacGrath|
John White was an undercover agent working for the National Security Agency, and was given the assignment to investigate the First Sons, along with Lucy Kuo and their inside associate, Sebastian Wolfe. Though, he was nearly successful in his time undercover, he was ripped apart and pulled into a vortex during a freak accident with one of the First Sons' inventions, namely the Ray Sphere. After some time, his sub-consciousness awoke, and was reborn as "The Beast", a Conduit with immense power.
Powers and Stats
Tier: At least Low 6-B, likely far higher | At least High 6-A, likely 5-C
Name: John White, "The Beast"
Age: Mid-Late 30's
Classification: Human, Conduit, Former Undercover Agent
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Large Size (Type 2), Fire Manipulation, Gravity Manipulation (Can create an anti-gravity field around himself that causes people and objects to float helplessly), Can create pseudo black holes, Telepathy, Teleportation, Transformation and Shapeshifting (Can transform into the gigantic Beast, his human form, or into his pseudo-black hole form), Size Manipulation (Can shift from normal size to towering heights at will), Matter Manipulation (Macro Quantum. Through his pseudo-black hole, he can break down, absorb, and control matter, used it to rebuild his body after he was atomized by the Ray Sphere. Can break down any matter or energy attacks that come in range of his black hole, such as Cole's electricity, which is comprised of electrons. Can control his own Ray Field radiation, which is composed of high speed particles), Absorption (Can break down matter and energy on a macro quantum level and absorb it), Regeneration (High, rebuilt his body after being ripped apart atom by atom, based off his matter manipulation), Longevity, Immortality (Types 1, 2 and 3), Statistics Amplification (Amplified Cole's powers such as improving his Radar Vision and giving him infinite energy. Can most likely amplify his own powers similarly via Ray Field Radiation), Limited Reactive Evolution (Conduits gain new powers by stressing their bodies in different ways. In moments of extreme duress, his body will develop new powers to best aid the situation), Accelerated Development (Conduits are naturally able to hone their abilities through training for short amounts of time), Biological Manipulation (Can cause genetic mutations or cause people to develop the incurable Ray Field Plague), Transmutation (Can transmute the matter he absorbs into the strange lava-esque matter that his body is composed of), Power Absorption and Power Nullification (Broke and drained Cole’s powers, weakened him to the point where he had to absorb several Blast Cores to regain his previous level of power), Electricity Manipulation (Can generate massive amounts of fiery-orange electricity from his body), Flight, Weather Manipulation, Durability Negation (via Ray Field Blasts and various other abilities), Can bestow powers onto others with the Conduit gene, and can transfer his power to them, Resistance to Disease Manipulation/Biological Manipulation (all Conduits are immune to the Ray Field Plague, a highly deadly disease that the CDC was completely unable to deal with, the Beast also apparently lacks organs, and is composed of a lava-like substance), Resistance to Matter Manipulation and Fire Manipulation | Same as before, Ice Manipulation (Froze people solid in Kessler’s timeline), Earth Manipulation (Can create volcanoes)
Attack Potency: At least Small Country level, likely far higher (The Beast was able to release large blasts that covered significant portions of the US, destroyed this much of Empire City with a single blast at the beginning of the game. Created a blast of this magnitude just by transferring his powers to Cole. Was able to contend with RFI Boosted Cole for awhile. Conduits grow stronger over time and when exposed to Ray Field Radiation, of which the Beast is a natural producer of) | At least Multi-Continent level (Destroyed the moon in the future in the early days of its awakening), likely Moon level (Had several years to increase his powers before Kessler went back in time)
Lifting Strength: Class G (The Beast was able to casually throw vehicles and a building-sized statue across the city with little effort. Far stronger than Alden, who turned a bridge into a giant golem)
Striking Strength: At least Small Country Class, likely far higher | At least Multi-Continent Class, likely Moon Class
Durability: At least Small Country level, likely far higher (The Beast was able to survive being torn apart within the vortex of the Ray Sphere, and regenerated atom from atom. Survived attacks from Cole MacGrath after being empowered by the RFI. Conduits get stronger with time and when exposed to Ray Sphere Radiation, of which the Beast is a natural producer of) (Regeneration makes him very difficult to kill) | At least Multi-Continent level, likely Moon level (Regeneration makes him very difficult to kill)
Stamina: Extremely High (Fought off the Milita, the Rebels, Nix and Cole all at once, suffering numerous injuries along the way. Traveled along the East Coast for several days, stopping only to destroy cities and towns)
Range: Hundreds of kilometers (The Beast was able to cause explosions that were worth several hundred kilometers in range) | Likely Planetary (Destroyed the moon from Earth)
Standard Equipment: Nothing Notable
Intelligence: Highly Intelligent (Used to be an undercover agent who managed to infiltrate the First Sons, avoided DARPA and Moya's forces, as well as the Dust Men from chasing him for weeks.)
Weaknesses: The RFI (Ray Field Inhibitor) weakens his powers and severely damages him. Otherwise, nothing notable.
- Power Giving and Boosting: Can give powers to those who have the conduit gene. Can also enhance their powers as a passive effect. Natural conduit abilities are enhanced strength, durability and regeneration factor. Typically done with explosions.
- Gravity Lift: Allows the Beast to manipulate gravity and cause anything nearby to float.
- Fireball: Can summon gigantic balls of fire that easily sinks large ships. Fireballs explode repeatedly.
- Shapeshifting: Allows John to transform into a gigantic titan of magma, or to his former self.
- Teleportation: First used with his encounter with Cole once he became the Beast. Also used in order to create a new body in another area.
- Gravity Hole: Allows John to create a pseudo-black holes that pull anything close to it. It also breaks down and absorbs any matter sucked into it. Created when regenerating.
- Ray Sphere Blast: City scale blasts that create new conduits and destroy anything else.
