#1 Eclipse

| November 1, 2013 | 0 Comments



Eclipse is a luxamancer and has the ability to absorb light.  Depending on the extent to which he does this he can either simply shroud himself in shadows, becoming almost invisible, or can blanket a wide area in darkness, smothering all lights within it; the extent of this range has not been established but he has been known to cover an entire football pitch (about 8000 square meters).

He has three other abilities, both linked to his luxamancy, which are: the ability to see in complete darkness, as if it were daylight; to cope with extreme changes in light (from blinding to dark) with no issues; and to project the built up, absorbed ambiance …this can be as subtle as the level of a candle, blinding strobes, or as a burst of of all contained light at an intensity of in excess of 42.3 billion candela …bright enough to be seen from space and raising the immediate temperature to 300 °F/149 °C.  Doing so, however, weakens him.

Eclipse is also an excellent hand to hand combatant.

About the Author ()

I live in Northern Ireland though, for me, home is simply wherever my loved ones are: my wife, best-friend and soul mate, Carole, and our two wonderful little boys - Mackenzie (5) and Nathaniel (3). While I have a degree in art I'm really nothing more than an enthusiastic sketcher. Most of my creative energies are focused on writing - predominantly a short story author but have delved into novellas and am current researching/prepping my first novel. I founded, and edit, 'With Painted Words' - www.withpaintedwords.com - an online literary magazine that takes inspiration from monthly image prompts and 'The WiFiles' - www.thewifiles.com - a weekly speculative fiction 'zine. I'm also a co-host on the Folowing The Nerd - www.followingthenerd.com - radio show, and a contributor to their news/reviews website. I teach kung fu. I'm a school Governor, a Director for the Arts & Disability Forum of Ireland and a lobbyist/advocate for the Northern Ireland Rare Disease Partnership. ... and sometimes I sleep.
