Distinctive Features - Mercy has a large scar across his left shoulder and pectoral in the rough form of an M. The scar is from where the mobsters removed the flesh from his body as they started to skin him.
Identity - Mercy's real name has been scrubbed from databases due to his time as an undercover cop. Even his fellow officers tended to refer to him by his name at the time, and they all believe him to be dead. On bad days, even Mercy has trouble remembering the name his parents gave him.
Monstrous - Mercy has tread too close to the dark side. While he is trying to bring himself back to the light, he sometimes has to fight his nature from doing things that most people would consider bad (stealing, torturing, killing).

Known Background: The man now known as Mercy was once a member of the Detroit Police Department; an undercover detective for the Vice Squad. He had deeply infiltrated one of the local mobs and was on the verge of blowing the organization wide open until he was ratted out by a group of dirty cops. Shot several times and started to be skinned, he was spared from death only by the timely arrival of a few honest cops. Buried beneath the skins of other victims, the mobsters fled the scene, leaving him for dead. He didn't die, however, and after nursing himself back to health, he dressed himself in the skins of his fellow victims and began cutting a swath through Detroit's underworld, searching for the monsters responsible and making them beg for "Mercy" before administering their punishment.

By the time he was done, Mercy had sunk into the bitter darkness of vengeance. It wasn't until he faced the last person on his hit list that he realized that he had become no better than those that he had been hunting; wanted by the uncorrupted police and superheroes of the city. Realizing that he had to turn his life back around, he created a legitimate costume for himself and moved to Las Vegas with the intent to join their Strikeforce's group of Consultants, allowing him to once again work on the right side of the law.... unless the wrong side is needed to get the job done.

Mercy was created, designed and is played by Steve Williams.
