The symbiote's ability to bond with a host and control it is noted, however frequently unused; Emerald prefers to be his own being, only relying on a host if he has recently sustained massive damage.



The Latex Symbiote is listed as his relative, which is not confirmed IC. It is not public knowledge or on any file that any faction would have, it is only listed for me to remember.

Public Information

The Emerald Symbiote, which prefers the name "Emerald", has been completely upfront and honest with all law-enforcement branches it has encountered. Emerald is technically a Symbiote, and as such is capable of taking over organic and robotic entities alike for use as hosts; however, He has stated repeatedly that he likes being his own person, and usually appears humanoid. As such, he is officially classified as a Shapeshifter Mutant because of his ability to change his size, shape, and even colour to some extent.


It comes from an alternate universe much like Primal Earth, except for one small detail. In his reality, Lord Recluse never existed; there were no 'Destined Ones'. Because of this, his world had a massive surplus of unnecessary heroes. Ultimately, one-way travel to alternate realities was developed, and many of their heroes were sent into other realities that needed assistance. Technically a natural occurrence on his homeworld, Emerald has been slightly mutated by traveling to a universe alternate to his own, turning him his signature shade of green rather than his natural black. As such, he only adopted the name "Emerald" after arrival.

Personality and Appearance


Emerald is, for the most part, blunt and honest. He sees himself as a person with wants, needs, hopes, and dreams. The fastest way to irritate him is to ask him if he is a plant-based life-form (A sore spot, because he remembers being black, not green, and would liked to have stayed that way. He is fairly amiable in most situations, and can frequently be heard trying to talk criminals down in combat. Far from a pacifist, though; he would just prefer to not have to hurt anyone.


His default appearance is a tall, male humanoid, with entirely green features and lighter green accents. In this form, he frequently produces bubbles that expand and then deflate, sometimes dripping to the floor only to have the matter pulled back into the body as a whole.
