A known combatant of an underground parahuman fighting ring, his power is known by the people who follow such things to be a very potent copying ability. He is wanted for killing ten capes between matches when he realized none of them would give him a real challenge individually.
Stands around six feet, with a stocky frame, dark red hair, green eyes, and white skin covered in freckles. Wears beat up casual clothes such as graphic tees, jeans, boots, etc.
For costume, he wears heavy duty jeans and boots, a shirt with ripped off sleeves if he wears any shirt at all, and one of several metal lower-face masks with various designs. Some include respirators if he expects to deal with gasses. In the winter, he’ll throw on a fur-lined long coat.

Believes in fair and honorable fights for his opponents, but will absolutely wreck their shit if they try to get uppity. He believes that he is a literal god among parahumans, driven by the fact that he has rarely lost fights in the arena. He is capricious and prone to fits of boredom if not properly entertained.
Can copy and combine the effects of powers used within a 60-foot radius of himself. When copying a power, he does not gain protections to it, meaning he can injure himself if he's not careful, but he does overcome other people’s protections when using the power. (Ie, he and a pyrokinetic are equally susceptible to each other’s fire). If he copies two or three abilities at the same time, he can combine them to create a new power.
He does not copy physical mutations tied to powers. While he can copy Tinkers, he needs time to work while they’re nearby, and he would need the same power in order to perform maintenance. He cannot mirror other Trumps, except that he can mirror power effects those other Trumps have picked up and use (ie, he can’t copy Archmage’s copying power, but he can copy a power that Archmage uses from his own copy). He loses a power when someone leaves his radius. When losing power, it gradually decreases over the course of a few seconds, so he does not just plummet out of the sky when losing a flier’s power, but instead descends gently.
He can hold up to three powers at one time. He can choose to discard a power to pick up a new one immediately. When not using any other powers, he has a strong regeneration power that allows him to recover from major wounds within a week.
He is able to sense when powers are being used, which allows him to dodge attacks better as he knows when they’re coming.
Growing up, Louis idolized a hero in his hometown. Said hero tried his best to keep his distance, but couldn’t stop Louis from feeling like he had a right to the man’s attention. It got to the point where Louis would show up at crime scenes in progress while the hero was fighting, putting himself in great danger. This culminated in the hero shouting at him that he would never be a hero, he would never be a sidekick, he would never amount to anything.
