Shadow Atoned was created after Recharged reached level 50. His creator decided he wanted to try the Kheldians he had unlocked half a year ago, and the idea of a reformed Nictus fighting crime fit Nod best. His influences include the Robin of Teen Titans and Vyse of the RPG Skies of Arcadia.
Supergroup: The Guardian Force
Former Supergroups: Teen Squadron
A born leader, Nod has a strong moral code and an undying loyalty to his friends. Righteous to a fault, he considers his top priority to be defending the people of Paragon from harm. In battle, he remains calm and focused, although he isn't above joking with his teammates.
Unknown to him, Nod has an inherent ability to copy and absorb various forms of energy.
Drawing upon the powers of the Nictus in his head, Nod can fire blasts of negative energy, manipulate gravity and dark matter to hinder his foes, and transform into a flying Dark Nova to unleash a hail of dark bolts.
Aided by the Nictus, Nod can form shields out of dark energy, heal himself with the energy of defeated foes, and transform into a massive Black Dwarf to take a beating and dish out a larger one.
Using Nictus energy, Nod can warp space to teleport himself, his teammates, or his foes.
During a raid on a Galaxy training facility, Nod Marks, better known as the hero Recharged, found a Nictus in a badly weakened state. Calling itself Blackscythe, it told him that the Council attempted to use it in the creation of a Shadow Cyst, and if it did not find a host, it would die. Acting quickly, Nod allowed the Nictus to bond with him, giving it time to regain its strength until it found another host.
Hurst: A former teacher of pyschology at the school he attended, Nod and Hurst conflict over their views of Paragon's heroes. He still has not forgiven her for murdering a hero and several police officers who attempted to apprehend her.
Vis Vires: After clearing his name in a murder the villain attempted to frame him for, Nod considers Vis Vires his greatest foe. The two clash in their ideologies; Nod believes that it is his duty to defend the innocent with his abilities, while Vis Vires insists that those with power must assert themselves over those without.
Marks: His Praetorian double, Nod sees Marks as nothing more than a common thug. However, he also sees the path he could have taken; rather than using his powers to defend the city, Marks concerns himself only with his own pleasure.
Roundtree: The leader of Roundtree Industries, Alan Roundtree is Nod's newest foe. The hero is disgusted both with the atrocious way Roundtree treats his employees and with the megalomaniac's desire to control the world economically.
