Origins:  Adam Bloodworth grew up as a frail, spindly kid with  Severe Combined Immune Deficiency Syndrome that required him to live in a
sterile environment. Fortunately, Adam's family was wealthy enough to continue top-notch treatments and make his life as comfortable as
possible. The best tutors were hired to keep his mind engaged and they all found Adam to have an inexhaustible appetite for more and more
knowledge, from quantum physics to poetry, from applied mathematics to nuclear engineering. In time Adam had mastered a staggering array
of knowledge disciplines and had set up an internet business as a theoretical physics consultant. At 23, his medical condition worsened and
he was given only months to live. He declined rapidly, losing his hair, becoming emaciated and experiencing great pain that no medications
seemed to be able to blunt. Nearing death, Adam became one of the few humans affected by the global phenomenon later dubbed
Neogen Flux"
which caused a dramatic alteration in his genetic structure. Adam's pain immediately subsided as he began to regain strength
and appetite. Within days Adam was able to sit up in his bed, was lucid and appeared to be gaining weight. By the end of the week, Adam's
physique looked better than it ever had. He was no longer skinny and he even began to appear more muscular without working out. When a
medical team examined his blood, they found it perfectly healthy with no trace of his SCIDs disease. They were floored however to find a chain
of blood cells inexplicably
morphing from one type of cell to the next: from  blood cells to skin cells to bone cells to muscle cells and so on.
Flabbergasted, they dubbed them
univercells. Adam was overjoyed at his healthy turn and instinctively felt his SCIDs ailment was in remission.
He begged to leave the sterile environment but was refused. Frustrated and angry he threw a text book across the room and smashed a glass-
topped shade perched atop a heavy torchiere. As it toppled over, the  razor-sharp edge punctured a hose and
breached the sealed
environment. After a few tense moments and no ill effects, Adam's suspicions were confirmed. The family was ecstatic over their newfound
miracle, but Adam's changes did not stop. He grew freakishly large, more muscular, more swollen, developed a heavy brow, developed
completely white eyes and never regained his hair. Though doctors could not confirm any kind of infection, they were unable to diagnose
Adam's condition. Their recommendation was for Adam to take advantage of the UN's offer to research suspected victims of
"The Neogen
Prior to arriving, Adam stumbled onto an ability to shapeshift his form into other humans. It would prove to be just the beginning of his
scope of changes, courtesy of his univercellular structure.  
Powers:  Exerting the kind of effort it would take to grit your teeth and hold it, Corpus can assume and "hold" the physical appearance of any
human and their clothing.  The unique univercells also afford him
instant healing. It would take nothing short of complete cellular destruction
to kill Adam Bloodworth because he
can recreate his entire body from a single univercell through instantaneous replication taking less than a
second. Shifting most univercells to tough bone or muscle, Corpus can create a bodily structure
capable of tremendous feats of strength.  As
blood cells, Corpus
can flow like water.  By selectively eliminating nerve cells, Adam can suppress pain. Adam may stumble across some
unknown measure of mind  powers if enough of his body converted to brain cells.  Adam uses self-deprecating humor as a device to offset his
displeasure over his new relaxed-state appearance although having the option to shapeshift into a Hollywood heart-throb Pitt may hold
certain advantages he has yet to explore. Adam's rapid shapeshifting abilities earned him a classification as a unique "chameleonic
organism." By psionically driving his univercellular structure, he triggers instantaneous changes. Exigon, one of  the ANGEL Corps' venerated
combat systems trainers, was the first one to nickname him Corpus, a latin word for "body" and an acronym for Chamelonic Organism
Regulating Psionic Unvercellular Stimulation.   

Corpus' anatomical configuration in a "normal" relaxed and default state includes all of the traditional organ placements, systems and
configurations that you or I would have, albeit in a significantly optimized state. Generally speaking his systems are far more efficient, tissue
far tougher, bone far denser, etc. He does not need any of it though. He is essentially a big mass of identical cells for which the default form is
"locked in" as Corpus, with all cells occupied simultaneously by the sentient energy that is Corpus' essence. Each cell in his structure is ready
at but a thought to instantly morph into any other kind of cell, so wounds can be instantly stopped, damage instantly healed, pain averted,
foreign bodies pushed out. Any cell that is damaged or that leaves contact with his body simply vaporizes into thin air.

If Corpus' body were to be fragmented as might occur being caught in an explosion, Corpus' essence would always reside in some single
portion of his body while all the other disconnected components would simply vaporize into thin air.  From the single portion, Corpus could
regenerate his entire body and be ready to go again.  
Strength Level Unassisted:
Class 1-B Macrohuman Human Range.
Level 10.
Can press 1000 Lbs.
Strength Level Power-Assisted:
Class 4. Suprahuman Range.
Level 6.
Can press 60 Tons.
Arsenal:  Adam can create hand held fighting weapons such as a bo staff or nunchucks from his own body, although if they are knocked from
his hand they will vaporize into smoke. He can always, however, replicate them up again.
Fighting Prowess: Prior to the martial arts training he is learning now, Adam has had virtually no training in any fighting disciplines. His ability
to become amorphous, however, and nullify injuries gives him an instant formidability that would be challenging to counter.
Standard Nanotech Armored Protection Gear (SNAP-Gear), lightweight uniforming system equipped with onboard computer array, variable
feed power sources, life-support, networking and armored protection. A voice-activated onboard computer ties into tactical local and wide-
area networks using a “heads-up” holographic transparent 17-inch display panel while it monitors its wearer’s physiology. A shield mode
provides operatives head-to-toe protection.   
Adairian Adaptive memory molecules enable SNAP-GEAR uniforms to adapt to a host’s application of wide arrays of energies. SNAP-Gear is
able to transform into a small inventory of various non-combat outfits pre-loaded by its user.  
ANGEL Com (Communications Device), a neural transceiver implant that responds to basic cybernetic commands. The device utilizes ultra-
sophisticated cerebellinguistic algorithm codes to translate human languages. Once set, the device automatically translates and feeds
languages or dialects in one’s native tongue directly into the ear with an average translatability percentage ratio of 94.6% for all known
language patterns.
