Full Name: Garrett Thresher Nickname/Alias: Reave, Bonez Age/Date Of Birth: 26, December 2nd 2017 Race: Human Occupation: Former Car Salesman, Cyrus/Messiah lackey, one of Cyrus' "Four Horsemen" Species Group: 2nd Generation Deva Play-By: Gabriel Luna
SELF-FIRE TRANSMUTATION The ability to transform matter into fire, but it is directed towards Garrett's own organic matter. He can burn away his skin, muscles and internal organs - displacing their molecules into "organic flames." These flames burn at a temperature hot enough to melt steel. He can use this ability in the form of limited pyrokinesis, sending out short range fire blasts with intense force and heat, able to easily throw people... or disintegrate them with enough power put behind the blasts. He doesn't have to transmute all of his body into fire and is able to do it in pieces, such as warping his hands into their fire form and blasting fire out.
Garrett's flames burn hot enough that they can instantly evaporate water upon contact, and seem nearly impossible to "put out" with it being his organic matter, only going out for a matter of seconds before they reignite at full force, and occasionally much worse.
SKELETON PHYSIOLOGY A secondary effect of his Self-Fire Transmutation. When Garrett fully initiates his primary ability, it leaves only his bones to work as a physical body for him to work through when all of his organic matter takes up the form of fire. This removes the danger of taking physical damage to his body, barring his bones, and with the heat he gives off he can easily burn and melt other objects by a simple touch - including people. In this form he does not require oxygen, sleep, rest, or food/water.
CYRUS EXPERIMENTATION After falling in with Cyrus, the psychotic godlike Deva overlord, Garrett's bones were infused with a mixture of metal alloys and outlined with reinforced tungsten. This makes his bones incredibly durable and realistically unbreakable by most normal means. This also gives him INCREDIBLE weight, undoubtedly sinking in water alongside low-end superhuman strength where he can easily throw people or break bones with his hands.
ANGEL BLOOD EFFECTS On Angel Blood, Garrett's range that he can launch the fire is greatly increased, letting him cause large amounts of widespread destruction.

When you're brought up by a man like Dave Thresher for most of your child life, there's always a chance you might take on his traits. His abusive father led Reave to be a bit of a darker, more volatile sort. He was always able to hold back his violent urges in his youth for the most part, despite a few fights, and he did his best to follow his big sisters advice and lead a normal life... he hated it, completely. Reave hate the typical, every day things that people do - the way he figures it, he was given these powers to be special, not normal... and nowadays, he sees the power as a means to take what he wants whenever he wants. He's a being built from fiery hot rage that he has spent most of his life suppressing and shoving under the surface for the sake of the one person in the world he cared about most.
... Of course, with her gone, so is Reave's buffer. He's loud, proud and in-charge with a complete disregard for human life - making his violent intentions known when he's at his worst and being the very opposite of subtle. Reave is the man you send in when you need something taken care of violently and loud. He's not known for being friendly to anyone but the people in Cyrus' ranks - and even then, it's rather rare to see him striking up a kind, civil conversation.
His biggest weakness has to be his sister. Her being the biggest impact on his life, Reave cares about her the most - shes effectively the only person in the world Reave really, truly cares about and the only person who can truly stop him from his violent tendencies.

Parents: Dave and Nicole Thresher Siblings: Sylvia Thresher (Older Sister) Other Family: Mila Shields (Niece from another dimension) Important Others: Other Cyrus lackey's
Being the second child of a failing marriage - demon or not - Reave was born to Nicole and Dave Thresher with an older sister of nearly 20 years. He was born in Zeppelin City, and his life was rather typical for a few years, barring the dysfunctional family life. Finally, though, when he was four years old Nicole decided to leave Dave after years of abuse. Despite her having a rather solid case for full custody; Dave bullied Nicole into giving him primary custody of Garrett - he would have pressed for Sylvia, too, had it not been for her being of legal age to make her own decisions. One of Garrett's earliest memories is Nicole packing his toys into a bag while arguing with Sylvia over the situation. He remembers Sylvia fighting and fighting non-stop for him to stay, but in the end - she had no say in the matter. Dave had custody.
Living with an abusive father effected him about as well as anyone would expect. Reave didn't take it as well as Sylvia did, who used the horrible situation at home to drive her forward in life. All Reave had to help him deal with the situation was the weekends he'd spend away from his father, and primarily in Sylvia's apartment. His older sister proved to be more of a mother than either of his actual parents. He didn't hate Nicole, of course, but he did deal with some resentment towards her for leaving him to Dave. Sylvia was always there for him, though.
He spent most of his life in Zeppelin City... with Dave. Eventually, things reached a boiling point with his situation when Sylvia brought him home from school without asking their father, resulting in an argument where their father struck Sylvia. The resulting rage triggered Garrett's latent Deva abilities and he burst into flames, disintegrating Dave and most of the kitchen in the resulting blast.
Local law enforcement gave him a pass for the situation he found himself in, and Sylvia volunteered to let him come live with him - the two of them eventually leaving Zeppelin for Seattle. He was rather happy with this living situation. Sylvia eventually took up a job working with Scott Jacobs in the city, and Garrett took on a job as a car salesman... a job that he hated and would go on to have for years.
He was rather dissatisfied with his normal life, given what he could do, but he was happy to have his sister supporting him - always pushing him to do better. His life was turned upside down, however, when a group of close-minded hunters caught his lovely, powerful sister on her way home and shot her in the back of the head when she let her guard down.
Garrett couldn't handle the resulting fallout of Sylvia's death. Scott attempted to work him through it, but he wasn't going to have anything of it and he went to chase down his sisters killers; a chase that would lead him across the US as he hunted down the six hunters and murdered them, brutally. He made sure they suffered as a result for what they did with a deadly efficiency, just like his father did. He'd arrived in New York to pick off the sixth man, only to find him torn apart and someone else waiting on him... Cyrus.
The all-powerful being offered him a job - one that a man like Reave, with his violent tendencies and seething hatred for the unfair world he lived in accepted without a second thought. He joined up with Cyrus and helped him take control of the world by force, eventually becoming a subject of his experiments to expend his abilities through altering the structure of his bones into the dense metal that they are now and following Cyrus back through time and dropping his name in favor of what the hunter rebellion called him... Reave.
Revan let everything Lucy was saying hit her at once, and it felt like the feeling the Angel got when she was still powerful, when someone shot her with a shotgun. She felt terrible, like someone had punched her in the gut, or hit her with a baseball bat. She turned around and her hand went over her mouth, feeling like she was going to throw up. It was better that Lucy was dead than deserving this... No one deserved to be a ghost, the sad, sad existence.
Her throat tightened and tears began to well up, trying a hard as she could to keep from breaking down here on the floor.
She turned to Lucy, seemingly three shades paler, her hair not nearly as vibrant as it seemed to be three years ago, her grey eyes dulled to a shade of black. "Lucy... its 2013..." Revan hadn't been keeping track but she had counted three New Years celebrations since Lucy's death. Her hands went to her face and then back to her sides, her nails digging in to her palms until blood leaked down her fingers. "Three years.. I've counted. Three years I've slept alone in the bed. Three years I've drowned my sorrows I alcohol... Three years with my heart ripped from my chest without you here, Heaven and Earth becoming a living hell to me, leaving me with what options?" Revan wasn't going to lie, she had tried her hand at writing stories like Lucy, but that was the best poetry she could do, even if it was free verse.
Tears were dripping down her cheeks again now, and with the flick of her wrist the TV blinked to life and flicked to the news, where the date would be shown. "Everything I told you... Everything you thought I was crazy over, everything you would joke about... About me being an Angel was not a lie." Revan looked up at her again and then to the floor. "I m-missed you so... s-so much." Revan's legs stopped supporting her then and the pink haired woman fell on the floor, her head tilted down and her face in her hands, sobbing. She knew she shouldn't, but she felt as she did on the day of Lucy's death and funeral. Like all the life had been sucked out of her seeing the person she loved at this fate. But there was a part of Revan that was revived with this, the part of her that she had thought was buried with Lucy... Selfish as it may be to her, Revan was so, so happy Lucy was back.
