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
"The 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 Flux." 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.
Gear:
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.
