Alzoph, the Needle Runner is a Plasma Ravager from Helliat-4 that uses rapid fire molten blasts to melt his enemies.
The cities of Helliat-4 are often host to Freerun style race-battles, with the combatants running and fighting across the rooftops. Of all the Runners, Alzoph was the best.
Alzoph could cross the highest rooftop spires with ease, swinging along between them with a set of home made pitons. He had a great many admierers, and the fame eventually went to his head, leading him to perform greater and greater stunts. Of course, as with many such stories, Alzoph went too far.
As he made an atempt to scale Cloud Tower the tallest building in the floating city, a storm unlike one seen in decades hit, throwing Alzoph to the winds. He was blown to one of the lightning islands that floated across the planet, lost forever. Or so his fans thought.
The Darkspore soon began their asault on Helliat-4, taking the planet in a matter of days. When the Crogenitors came looking for uninfected beings one of the first they found was the half feral Alzoph. His mind had degenerated as he fought to survive on the small island. Though he was mostly a maniac by now, Crogenitor Felzeth saw what he had been, what he was now, and what he could become. He took the half mad ex-Runner and sculpted "A masterpiece," Alzoph was the first Genetic Weapon that the young Crogenitor had ever created and he put his heart and soul into his work.
The "Masterpiece" that Alzoph became was able to throw bolts of super-heated plasma from the reinforced pitons he now had grafted into his body. He had more speed than ever and could run up tall buildings. He hadn't lost any of his battle abilities on the island and the Darkspore on Helliat-4 soon learned to look to the rooftops, fearing the attack of the Needle Runner.
