Richard Lazarus was human who sought immortality. He nearly succeeded but with unforeseen side effects.


Before his age reduction Richard is a old man of average height. After his age reduction, he has blonde hair and he looks about 30 years younger. His transformed form is resembles a six-legged scorpion.


He experienced the World War II bombings as a child. He wanted to become immortal so he could accomplish all of his goals. His age reduction process awakened dormant genes causing him to transform into a creature that the ancestors of humans could have evolved into, but didn't.


He can shift between his human and his monster form. He can absorb the lifeforce of others and climb across walls and ceilings.


He is vulnerable to sound and energy pulses
