Marcel Allain’s past is a mystery. He claims that most of his life was spent high on drugs or alcohol, but the number of celebrities and media
personalities he is acquainted with paints a picture
of a man that is more than just a junkie. Marcel was given the name “LE CHEVAL” because of his high tolerance for
narcotics and alcohol. the men and women of Quebec have different
reasons for calling him “the Horse”, to them he is a lover of both
genders. They also call him “the bi-sexual don juan”.
Born and raised in Montreal, he spent most of his youth on the
streets. His parents worked for the French government and would
spend months at a time in Europe, leaving him to fend for himself.
Occasionally he would host parties at his parent’s home, but when his
father found out he quickly put an end to the parties. These
spectacles were so sexually charged and decadent that they became
the stuff of legend. This was how Marcel first came into contact with
the elite of the city. what started as a place to get high and fool
around became a must attend social event. Both of his parents
shunned him when the stories of his affairs with rich and powerful men
and women of all ages made the rounds in their social circle. It was
at his last party on his 18th birthday that Marcel announced he was
moving out. He was not seen in the city again for five years.
By no means qualified to work for a government agency like The
Canadian Legion, Melissa felt that the use of his powers far
outweighed any personal problems Marcel might have. The wealth of
his family ensured he had no criminal record. Melissa believes his
parents pressured her boss into putting him on the team.
Marcel is not comfortable taking orders from a woman, but the
money they offered him makes it a little easier to tolerate. No one
knows when his powers first appeared, but it has been suggested that
he was born with them, however the personal force field that
surrounds him was not strong enough to be noticeable until he was in
Marcel is surrounded by a self-sustained life preserving ‘bubble’ which
is often referred to as a forcefield. This protective shield deflects
objects or even energy which come in contact with the outer limit of
Marcel can mentally increase the intensity of the field so as to
deflect a large object or objects traveling at unusually high rates
of speed, or alter its shape slightly for better results. The field will
also repel disease and gas without his mental effort, giving him a
perfect living environment at all times. Heat, cold, even the crushing
pressures of the deep sea cannot damage his field. Even unconscious
it continues to protect him.
