Sharps, the Frost Mage is an Ice Tempest from the planet Eldris. His abilities are centered around snow manipulation.
Sharps' concepts surfaced a very long time ago. Sharps was one of the heroes, that didn't make it to the final game. Some players, Matvakama being one of them, remade Sharps to their own design.
When Sharps was first introduced, he had no weapons. This version of Sharps is equipped with a vest, that channels his powers.

Eldris, back in its prime, was flooding with life, after the Crogenitors cooled down the core to a life-sustainable level. The lifeforms quickly adapted to the harsh climate. The Eldrisians were ruled by an order of creatures, that possessed superior powers over ice. The Frost Mages.
Sharps' powers exceeded the powers of all other mages. The Cryopads, the species from which Sharps descended, were monks, whose task was to maintain the stability of Eldris' climate. Sharps' abilities came not only from his genetic heritage, but also from the genetic experiments performed on him during his childhood by Crogenitor Kylmund. Thus, Sharps was able to create waves of snow at will, spawn torrents of ice and fire bolts of cryokinetic energy. Kylmund also gave him a Cryo-Vest to keep his powers in check.
When the Darkspore attacked, the Frost Mages tried to protect the defenseless citizens, to no avail. In the end, Sharps was lying on the ground, half-dead and heartbroken. It was his duty to protect Eldris' inhabitants and he failed. By some sort of miracle, Kylmund appeared before him. Sharps yelled at the Crogenitor for not helping him to protect his people. Kylmund responded by touching the Cryopad's head, immediately healing his wounds and enhancing his powers. "May you fight fiercely for your world", the Crogenitor said and vanished. Sharps stood up, just as Darkspore patrols spotted him. The mutants leaped towards him, but they never made it. An outbreak of cryokinetic energy froze them in place. Sharps went out into the open to slay the beasts, that invaded his world. He vowed to free Eldris from the Corruptor's grasp and rebuild it the way it was, along with any and every being, that wanted the same.
