"The circumstances of my birth and subsequent upbringing are largely unimportant."

Aleister Cromwell, renowned professor of history at Paragon City University, was brought on to consult on an archaeological dig in what used to be Astoria. The team of researchers sought to investigate a long-rumored, ancient portal between our dimension and another to explore and possibly harness energy from.

Aleister led the research team to the site they sought and they successfully located the stone barrier that acted as the portal. There, Aleister discovered that the team had already unearthed an ancient tome known as The Black Book of the Dreaded. Recognizing the book from his studies, Aleister cautioned the team on proceeding any further due to the book's grim history but his warnings fell on deaf ears. They were determined to open the gate. As one researcher read a passage from the book, the portal crackled to life. The researcher was reduced to ashes in seconds. The extra-dimensional breech had been successfully opened.

On the other side was a fathomless, space-like void that imprisoned monstrous entities. Eldritch beasts as large as football fields floated through the abyss and one by one, the researchers were pulled into the void and consumed by the monsters. One such creature, Krallok The Dreaded, drifted towards the entrance to our world to escape his eternal prison. Unable to fully pass through the breech, Krallok's essence exited his physical form, like a snake shedding its skin and entered and merged with Aleister, the last living soul on the other side.

"It was only after the incident did I learn that the fools were not only students at the university, but also newly recruited Circle of Thorns initiates who sought an offering to their new masters. Suffice to say, they received far more than they bargained for."

Now sharing a body, Krallok The Dreaded wished to exact revenge on the mages who'd imprisoned him, but was quite disheartened to learn from Aleister that they were long dead. Aleister insisted they make the best of a bad situation and use their combined abilities to combat the forces of evil. Lacking anything better to do, Kallok begrudgingly agreed.

Shapeshifting: Doctor Leviathan possesses vast shape-shifting abilities that stem from his otherworldly nature and eldritch physiology. He is able to alter his size and shape at will, regrow limbs and form additional appendages, elongate parts of himself into bladed weapons during combat, even sprout wings that allow him to fly. Doctor Leviathan can change color and relative shape, imitating even clothing if desired.

Superhuman Strength: While at a resting state the limits of his strength are unknown, Doctor Leviathan can lift 10 tons with little effort.

Superhuman Durability: Due to his eldritch morphology, Doctor Leviathan's body is nigh impervious to physical injury, capable of withstanding assault from high-caliber bullets, rockets, explosions powerful enough to level buildings, as well as attacks from other super-powered individuals.

Regenerative Healing Factor: Bruises, lacerations, burns, decapitation, dismemberment, and even evisceration only serve to slow Doctor Leviathan down. He is also completely immune to any human diseases, bacteria, viruses or poisons.

Immortality: Aleister is immune to the effects of aging and has not aged since merging with Kallok the Dreaded.

Eldritch Pyrokinesis: Doctor Leviathan possesses the ability to generate, control, and project mystical fire, or "eldritch flames " at will. The ethereal and supernatural flame not only burns the soul of a person but can also burn their physical body if Doctor Leviathan so chooses. He can utilize the fire in various ways including balls, spew out massive waves and unleash omnidirectional explosions, and raining down firestorms directly towards surrounding enemies.
