College student Roman was gravely wounded during an attack by Lexus terrorists at the Metropolis Museum of History. Bleeding profusely, he used an ancient belt as a tourniquet and was instantly possessed by a minor Roman god trapped inside the strap. Alpha Centurion took over and transformed Roman’s body. Blessed with superhuman abilities, he easily defeated the terrorists.
Since that moment, Alpha Centurion has repeatedly commandeered Roman’s body, leaving his host terrified that one day the warrior-hero will decide to possess him for good. The Centurion seems to be able to sense imminent danger before it arises and force the change without warning.
Alpha Centurion has possessed many hosts over the centuries, destroying monsters and carrying out the edicts of the mystical Pantheon of Grace. He is compelled to save lives and maintain order at all costs.
