Description: Loophole stands 6'1" and weighs 170 lbs. He’s reasonably handsome, although a bit cold, and dresses impeccably. He is so emotionless and distant that many believe his human feelings were burned away by the wild card virus. At top notch lawyer, he served the Astronomer at one point, before coming into Kien Phuc's employ. He cares nothing for right and wrong, but only if he can get way with what ever he is planning. He has no compunctions about killing, especially if it will aid him in a case.

Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: In case you don’t know, Loophole is an ace, who after contact with Typhoid Croyd gained the ability to give others the “Jumper” power via sexual contact. He then created a small army of male and female jumpers and ended up bringing ruin to a great many people (I also think this is when the series turned really dark and lost of lot of the fun of a supers setting.) This version (obviously) presents him before that contact. If want to simulate the power he needs a Major Transform with various Limitations represented extended sexual contact. The Transform gives the target the ability to swap minds with another person. I’m fairly sure you can find that power in The Ultimate Mentalist. In any case, the results won’t be pretty once the jumpers get loose in your game.

Loophole eventually meets his end at the hands of Mr. Nobody.
