Magic: Felix Faust is a master sorcerer able to control vast amounts of natural power affecting organic matter. Unlike more powerful magicians, Faust generally requires books or scrolls of spells to focus his powers.
Immortality: Felix Faust has the spirit of Hermes Trismegistus trapped inside him now granting him Immortality.
The first recorded whereabouts of the mighty sorcerer now known as Felix Faust is from circa 5.000 B.C., at which time he appeared in the legendary African empire of Kor. King of Kor was Nommo, prime wizard of his time, and the guardian of the mystic power called the Flame of Life. The evil sorcerer battled Nommo, attempting to use the Flame's power to his own corrupt ends. Nommo then called the Flame of Life into himself, defeating the sorcerer by banishing him to another dimension.
In the mid-1920s, a madman and wannabe-magician named Dekan Drache stumbled upon the dimension and managed to open a portal to it. Released, the sorcerer destroyed Drache’s soul and entered his body. However, though alive on Earth once more, the sorcerer found his powers drastically reduced.
Obsessed with restoring his mystic might, the sorcerer read the story of how the man called Faust had sold his soul to the devil for supernatural powers, and decided to do the same. Inspired by the story's main character, the sorcerer now called himself Felix Faust and began a never-ending quest for mystical knowledge.
