Compatible with unique people, they gave them special abilities and unimaginable power. William Walker, a 17-year-old who had lost everything, and experienced the woes of this world first-hand got hold of one of the suits and decided to take matters into his own hands under the name of Lyceus. Cruel and gruesome though his methods were at some times, they were always aimed for the ultimate, greater good.
