Beware The Many-Angled Ones! Ia! Ia!

Back to ICONS today.  Today's character came out of the generator as-is. I love it when random factors create something coherent right out of the box.

A few months ago, folks in the west got a chuckle out of the Chinese government banning all stories involving time travel from television and movies shown in the People's Republic.  Officially, this was to preserve a sense of respect for China's history.  In fact, it's just the tip of a much larger iceberg.

Time Travel is real.  It's also insanely dangerous, not just for the people doing it, but for the world, and possibly this entire branch of reality.  The Chinese government learned this when a young scientist named Zhong Qian Shuai attempted to send himself back in time a total of twelve hours.  The ensuing chronal rift turned sixteen square miles of western Yunnan Province into a hellish wasteland, and Zhong was trapped in the middle of it.

When the Wei Xiong (China's official superteam) finally got the situation under control and rescued him, they found him changed.  Charged with tremendous powers, his mind was broken.  Whatever he saw in those hours befrore his rescue, it changed him.  He became obsessed with protecting the REALITY from what he referred to as the Many-Angled Ones.  Using his newfound powers, he escaped from the holding facility and the Wei Xiong and fled China.  Now, as the Chrononaut, he sets forth on his one-man crusade to protect reality from something out there.  Mostly, this consists of wrecking scientific experiments dealing with time travel, but he's not about stealing to further his own defense of all creation.
