Accident: Dr. Barlow was a victim of direct exposure to a high energy proton beam when a faulty connection broke on a hadron collider.
Responsibility: Dr. Barlow feels responsible for the earthquake that destroyed the area around Avalon.
Equipment: GPS, Commlink, Datapad, Motorcycle, access to Blackwell International
An up and coming researcher in the field of Scalar–tensor–vector gravity theory, Dr Sheridan Barlow was destined to go places. Having graduated at the top of his class, nobody was surprised when he was awarded grants from Blackwell International to build a hadron collider in Tierra del Fuego.
Everything appeared fine during initial testing, and research began in earnest. During the next few years, the device was pushed to its limits as the mysteries of cosmological phenomena began to unfold. Unfortunately, a coupling failed during one experiment and Dr. Barlow received a high energy blast of protons to his brain, sending him into a coma that lasted for two years.
When he finally awoke, he was floating next to the ceiling. Startled, he fell back to his hospital bed, but an explosion of gravitation energy leveled most of the hospital wing in which he had spent the prior two years. The official reports state that a gas leak was the cause of the explosion, but Dr. Barlow was certain that was not the truth. He spent the next few months in seclusion, camping in the high desert outside Aurora, experimenting with his newly-found powers. Then The Big One hit. Was it just a coincidence that Barlow was at ground zero?
Dr. Barlow now spends most of his time doing research in the labs of Blackwell International.
Weight: 160 lbs
Description: Dr. Sheridan Barlow has an average build, and an unkempt shock of copper hair. He appears to remember to shave ever 4 or 5 days. He wears the same style of white button-down shirt, navy blue trousers, red necktie, and white lab coat everyday so he doesn’t have to waste time deciding what to wear. Or it could be the same set of clothes he wore yesterday. Nobody is really sure. If he’s not in the Blackwell labs, he’s usually wandering the hallways talking to himself since nobody else there really understands him.
