Character Notes/Origin/Personality: Victor's mutant abilities didn't surface until fairly late into his adolescence. When his electrical powers did manifest, he knew they were his ticket out of the orphanage, and into an easier, more profitable way of life. He soon graduated from a petty criminal into a full-blown supervillain. He's very mercenary about his actions, and will hire on for pretty much anything if the price is right. He's not one to hold a grudge, for the most part; as far as he's concerned, “it's just business.”         

Campaign Use: Volt functions reasonably well both as a solo villain, and as a member of a supervillain team. As a solo villain, he's fairly intelligent and adaptable, but his crimes will be fairly basic (usually monetary in nature), unless he is being hired for some specific task. As part of a group, he's smart enough to work well with others, and his ego doesn't get in the way of taking orders when necessary
