Real Name: Jason Valachi
Base: Emerald City
Jason Valachi grew up in New Orleans the son of Joseph and Jennet Valachi. His father Joseph was a well known mob lawyer responsible for keeping numerous organized crime figures out of jail. He spent his free time hanging out in his less then reputable “business” partners drinking and partying his cares away. Jason’s mother Janet spent most of her time seeking the secretes of the nether realm with psychics and tarot card readers. On the out side they looked like the typical family but behind closed doors, His father liked to use his mother and Jason as punching bags. Most of Jason’s childhood was spent hiding from his father with his mother on her spiritual journeys to endless psychics searching for something she could believe in. As the years went on Jason was drawn more and more into his mothers world with her psychics and spiritual advisers. Most advisers told Jason and his mother that Jason “Had the Gift” so his mother encouraged him to learn the craft.
The summer that Jason turned 17, he came home from school to find his father was home from work early and already drunk. His father sat him down and offhandedly told him that his mother committed suicide. when Jason asked how she could do this, his father placed all the blame on her “witch craft” and forbade Jason of having any thing more to do with that stuff. Jason was devastated and his father looked like he could care less. The next week Jason was going through his mothers things and found her favorite tarot cards. He sat at the table and started flipping the cards and thinking about his mom and all the good times they had together. About that time his father came home after a all day bender with a few of his Mob friends. His father became enraged finding Jason playing with his mothers tarot cards. Joseph proceeded to beat Jason almost to the point of death. Jason would have died that day, if it wasn’t for a strange feeling of calm that washed over him during the savage beating. It was like he was out of his body floating near the ceiling and next to him was the one person who truly loved him, his mother. He asked her how she could leave him with this cruel person his father. It was then she told him that it was his father and his friends that had her killed. She overheard a conversation that Joseph and the Mob boss where having about some secret financial dealings. At this point Janet told Jason everything she knew about where the money was, account numbers everything. She told Jason she would never be fare away from him and would help the only way she could. Jason felt himself blown back into his own body and enormous power coursing through his veins The power was white hot and looking for escape Jason then pulled a card from his mother’s tarot deck and it was card 13, Death. He looked around the room and found his father shrinking back in fear at the sight of Jason cracking with unearthly energy. Jason pointed to his father and said, “I have dealt the cards now you deal with the hand you have been given!” and let lose all the hurt, sorrow and pain that his father has inflicted on people in the form of a bolt of explosive energy.
When Jason awoke the next day he was laying on the ground next to a burnt out husk that Jason could only assume was his father. It was then he heard what it was that awoke him, loud banging on the downstairs door. He jumped up and looked out the window to see his dads “friends”, one pointed up and called his name. Jason jumped back from the window and just knew he had to get away. He grabbed what he could took the car keys off the peg as he took off out the back door just as his fathers “Friends” came in the front door. He knew he had to get out of town fast so he jumped his dads Porsche 911 and drove it right through the garage door. After what felt like a day of hard driving he stopped and had to think about what he was going to do now. It was then he remembered the info his mom had told him about and he know what he needed to do. Clean out the accounts and use that money to bring down the crime family that helped his father destroy the lives of so many people.
