Bane Spider Chimera
From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
Dr. Nicholas Chimera was born to parents Nicholas Chimera, Sr. and Lucia Chimera. His parents were born and grew up in Port Oakes. Nicholas Sr. was in the local mafia, and lived the mafioso lifestyle, which is what attracted Lucia. They met and were soon married, but it did not last. When Lucia was pregnant with Nicholas Jr, her husband broke the most sacred of vows in the mafia - Omerta. He had nowhere to turn, except Nemesis. He had an old friend within Nemesis who helped him out. Disgusted with her husband's actions - and knowing she was in danger - Lucia divorced him, and moved to Grandville. There, she figured, she would be safe.
Lucia gave birth to Nicholas in 1991. There, he grew up and was schooled in Grandville. He was socially detached from the other children, and did not have many friends. Due to this, he lacks social skills and is socially, if not physically, awkward. He knew not of his father, only that he wronged his mother greatly. If one asked Lucia what Nicholas' interests were, she would respond with one word: Arachnos. He adored Arachnos, and was fascinated by them. Their sleek uniforms, the order and fear they instilled. . . Nicholas loved it all. He knew he wanted to be one of them some day.
The Teenage Years
Nicholas didn't have many friends. But he did have a small group of friends with which he spent a lot of time with. Together, they joined a Neo-Nazi sect, and spent much time with the sect. They went on tour and held rallies all over the Isles. One curious thing was that they were heavily influenced by Pink Floyd's "The Wall". Though his mother did not approve, he cared not what she thought. They were essentially ultra-nativists, and their targets were Mexican, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese to name a few. During the rallies, they would march through the streets spreading propaganda. They called themselves 'The Worms', and went under the slogan 'Waiting For The Worms To Come'. They were hated by many, and loved by some. Despite the mixed reaction from the public, their efforts did, in the end, have an effect on the communities. Violence was sometimes used, and that was the final push. Eventually, the group died down, and Nicholas moved on.
