Overheard mumbling something about absorbing Quark's energy.
After witnessing the rematerialization of Aurora in the Reactor, Dr. Orion Strand saw a new future for the Warbotics Experimental Augmentation Division. He theorized that reinforcing the subject’s physical form could allow for even greater energy absorption. Acquiring a black market sample of the regenerative plasma from Project Rask (for a small fee), Orion created a cybernetic suit that would allow a user to withstand the Reactor’s energies. Seeing no reason to give that power to anyone else, Orion strapped on the suit and flipped the switch.
Few would call the resulting implosion a success, and certainly Warbotics isn’t pleased with the equipment and personnel of an entire division being absorbed in the creation of a megalomaniacal demigod. But on the other hand, at least he’s their megalomaniacal demigod.
Now calling himself "The Empyrean," Orion’s existence as a Freelancer provides him with a means to absorb enough energy to survive. But many believe that he has his sights set on the Reactor’s energy in the hopes that absorbing all of it will stabilize his form. Ideally, before it kills him.
