Fantastic Tales of Avalon City
Dr. Thaddeus Luxxon is a lead scientific researcher at the Avalon City Center for Macrobiotic Studies. Dr. Luxxon’s main area of expertise is Tachyon Theory. Tachyon theory presents the notion of two interdependent universes which are actually indivisible: the visible, sub-light speed universe and an invisible, faster-than-light one.
A tachyon is a subatomic particle that moves faster than the speed of light. Unlike ordinary particles, a tachyon’s speed increases when energy decreases, which means once set in motion the tachyon particle would keep moving on and on, faster and faster. Tachyons can exist both naturally, and as Dr. Luxxon has proven, can be produced artificially.
According to Dr. Luxxon, a Tachyon Field supplies the energy needs of living organisms until balance is achieved, then it eases until called upon again. As it is needed, and a depletion occurs, it rushes in until balance is achieved once again. The nervous system and brain are nothing but an extremely sophisticated antenna and receiver to absorb, process and transform the resources of the Tachyon Field.
After many years of dead-end research and hundreds of millions of funding, the money simply dried up. Luxxon gets funding from a mysterious benefactor, who turns out to be a member of SUN Industries. After SUN sees the Doctor’s research results, SUN kidnaps him, forcing him to do research exclusively for them.
The Dr. was contacted by an Elite undercover operative. Elite offers to get the Dr. out of a bad situation, if he agrees to do research for them. He agrees. While in the middle of an tachyonic experiment, an Elite-backed extraction unit, composed of mercenaries, attacks the SUN facility, causing massive destruction and mayhem.
Dr. Luxxon’s lab is consumed by a huge amount of tachyon feedback and he is knocked unconscious. When he recovers, he is aboard an Elite transport, with Director Vance Powers standing over him, offering the Dr. a position as a director of the Elite R&D team.
Shortly thereafter, the Dr.’s powers began to surface. He was able to move at insanely fast speeds, while to him- time seemed to almost be at a stand-still. He could barely control his movements. As a solution, he developed the Tech-yon Sphere, which aided him in controlling the Zero- Point field surrounding his body, allowing him to use his powers without the threat of basically tearing his molecules apart and killing himself.
Currently, Dr. Luxxon runs a small holistic practice in the ritzy west Independence Port area.
