Jacob Ken, also known as Playback, is somewhat known in the area of Devilfish as a powered detective/PI.

Character Sheet


A man just below average height, slightly heavily built but not enough that it's a health problem. Sandy blonde hair. Glasses.

He doesn't wear a costume, just sometimes dresses up in a trenchcoat and fedora to really play up the detective angle. Heavy smoker too, which he actually picked up *before* all that.


An intelligent man, but impatient. Has little to no patience for people who fail to keep up, mentally.

He's a good investigator, even without the help of his power, but the main reason he does it is as an excuse to find out secrets.


Playback is an environmental postcog, who can replay his visions in the present.

He sees random flashes of the past, of the area he is in. He can focus on specific timeframes or happenings to slightly steer the visions. He'll only get visions of 'interesting' events, rarely of times when nothing happened.

As a general rule, the further an event is in the past, the longer it takes for him to see it. However, after he has seen a vision once, he can easily call upon it again.

He can then replay these visions, manifesting them as ghostly images. The broader the area he replays, the less solid the visions are. Within a foot or two from him they are still solid enough to hurt, but as he spreads the effect out further they become less substantial.
