Shadow Boxer – Rune Augustin
Rune Augustin was a normal man, a martial arts enthusiast and working class computer programmer, until he stumbled across an ancient amulet while cleaning his father’s attic. The amulet had been passed down through the Augustin family for generations though they believed it to be cursed. Rune’s father never believed in the curse and put it in the attic with his own father’s effects when Rune was just a boy. The amulet passed to Rune who knew nothing about it and put it on. He discovered that the amulet created a shadowy form of hands that he could control through a combination of mental focus and physical movements. Initially the hands could only appear within a few feet of Rune but he soon discovered ways to push them further away from him – thus increasing the size and strength of the shadow hands.
While the hands are not attached to him, Rune is able to maintain some sort of link that allows him to swing from place to place as if he had incredibly long arms. He doesn’t fully understand his powers but has eagerly put them to the test. Misfortune has visited Rune in the past few months. His early adventures interfered with his work life and he lost his job. His girlfriend dumped him soon after and several people were injured as a result of his attempted heroics. No matter how hard he tries, things never go his way.
