PRT / Government Information
Marceau wears a Mimes Outfit, Striped Shirt and Black pants, a Black Beret on his head, Dress shoes, and obvious Body Armor sewn into the costume.
Occasionally they carry an Umbrella or a Notepad on them, but as soon as they let go of those items they disappear.
Timothy is not very special in his usual appearance. 5'11, with Blond short hair and greyish Blue eyes, almost always wearing Turtlenecks, and if it gets too hot for those, the pale arms and Legs of someone who has rarely seen the Sun without a window make it obvious that he was a recluse.
After triggering Timothy took a nosedive in trusting people and he is still very careful around new acquaintances. He is measured and guarded when interacting with the Public, rarely showing himself to civilians if he can avoid it.
While in costume He takes care to not permanently Injure Criminals and Villains, but the occasional broken Bone is inevitable when hunting bad guys.

trigger type: single standard second-gen trigger (decease mother)
Marceau is a Striker/Thinker able to turn objects invisible on touch and Puppet those objects via a sort of Telekinesis.
While invisible Marceau has an intrinsic understanding of Items he is controlling, letting him hit with enhanced accuracy when attacking with them.
His power is always active, even in his sleep and he carries parts of his equipment on him all the time to not accidentally making things invisible he doesn't want to.
Due to his understanding of affected Objects he also has a very limited form of Post-cognition regarding items he is affecting, like knowing who held it last.
Marceau's power makes them a well enough shot that he can hit an unmoving target with 10 out of 10 projectiles, but a moving target drops to ""Good chance to hit someone"" assuming they don't powers that make it more difficult to land a hit.(IE: extremely skilled but not superhuman)
If he is not actively keeping things from turning invisible, at which he is pretty good, he will turn stuff invisible by accident.
His variety of Post-Cognition is putting together Clues that surround the object he is affecting. Seeing if a Gun was the Murder weapon, if a knife was tossed into the stormdrain, or if it lay there for several months already. He could understand that a cigarette was smoked by an armored Mook, who was standing watch at a heist, but not identify the person themselves in a lineup The longer the timeframe he wants to get a feeling for the more abstract the informations get and he gets the equivalent of Thinker Headaches on even short timeframes, if he actively tries to get more abstract info.
As long as he can affect an Item with his telekinesis he can keep items invisible, outside of the range of his telekinesis items take 30-60 sec to turn visible, heavily shortened in combat. Usually in Combat an Item he throws (I.E Shuriken) turns visible before it hits it’s target.
As long as Items are affected by his power/ Invisible he is innately aware of their relative position to him, supported by his Thinker aspect. It basically gives Him the ability to feel where in relation to him Affected Items are.
The absolute reach of his Telekinesis is about 12-15ft, but he rarely uses more than like 5-6 for fighting, as that is the range where combatants can easily be tricked into mistaking melee attacks for ranged attacks and vice versa"
Background & Trigger
Tims Memories of his Mother were hazy, as she died when he was but a toddler, but Stories and Pictures gave him an idolized Picture of her in his head. Tim loved his mother, even if he had had no own memories of her.
Then, on the day after he turned 16 his father told him that his motherr had been a Cape, showing him her old Costume and Gear. He brings out Newspaper clippings of Tims Villain Mother using her Invisibilit. Powers to steal, kill and of her eventually getting caught.
He says she only did it to support the Family, how she never meant to hurt nobody, but in Tims Mind everything races. His beautiful and graceful mother, the woman he looked up to and adored his whole life long, a Villain, a cape, a murderer.
In this moment he broke, his mind still racing, his hand on his most valued possession, a Locket with the face of his mother. The Moment he triggered he understood, she tried to do her best, but he had to better."
