Little solid fact is known about Der Inkubus early life.
He claims to be a German boy named Hans, born with blue skin, elongated ears, cats eyes and a pre-hensile tail. His mutant gifts manifested eary at the age of 12, at which point he ran away from home and started to live on the streets and in his own pocket dimension, educating himself at the local University library.
He simply appeared one day during Anti Mutant Hysteria's first tour, and was impressive enough to be signed up by the manager Ace V on the spot.
His act would be introduced: "Ladies and Gentlemen! You may think you know up from down, dark from light! You have yet to meet... der Inkubus!", at which point he would perform bizarre and surreal parodies of traditional stage magic, such as pulling a hat out of a rabbit, cutting a giant living hot dog with female legs in half.
Der Inkubus was previously a member of the circus Anti-Mutant Hysteria. He is currently free of any permanent ties.
Der Inkubus is quite curious and approachable, and will happily spend hours quizzing other metahumans about their own stories. He can become moody and aloof at times, and will switch moods quickly and unexpectedly.
He is incredibly secretive, and evasive when it comes to the subject of himself, and will prefer to turn any conversation like this into a long winded philosophical discussion instead.
He is very well read, and tries (and often pulls off) an air of European sophistication and class.
He acts like normal human concerns, money, relationships, employment are beneath his interest, which they may well be if he does indeed live inside his own miniature dimension as a god, as he claims.
Der Inkubus' abilities have not been properly recorded or measured under laboratory conditions, and he has been less than forthcoming to the authorities about what it is exactly that he can do.
He claims to have a four dimensional brain, and the ability to retreat into a small pocket dimension inside his own head where he lives. This dimension is psychoplastic, in that hid thoughts directly extend onto the local relaity there.
When he steps out into our world, he retains some of this mental control, and will typically use it to turn invisible, create objects or even people out of thin air, and produce other such psychedelic distortions, such as changing the colour of the sky. None of these changes appear to be permanent - he has yet to produce an object from his pocket dimension that has been objectively verified as extant several days later, for example.
Weaknesses and Limitations
Der Inkubus is physically manifest in baseline reality, and can be taken down quickly if surprised. He cannot, for example, turn himself into metal for increased durability.
