History

Raja Katar (he legally changed his name from something painfully mundane) is a professional magician with a serious interest in the occult. From an early age he was obsessed with the idea of real magic. As a child he began to research the occult and play around with the stereotypical crystal ball, tarot cards, and palm reading. After several years he actually was able to glean some small amount of true occult knowledge and a great deal of simple chicanery. As Raja the Enchanter, he became one of the top 5 stage magicians in the world. His life changed permanently when, while on a command performance to the Dalai Lama, he discovered a ring that he recognized as an intensely powerful artifact.

Subplots

Raja is very often involved in Power Complication subplots due to his constant dabbling in the supernatural. He occasionally finds his new life as a Mystery Man interferes with his schedule of world-class prestidigitator and escape artist. Raja also refuses to go into any detail as to the specifics of how he was able to acquire his ring after discovering it.

Appearance

Raja dresses as a typical formal stage magician in top-hat and tails. However, one distinct feature is that he wears a great deal of gaudy costume jewelry to camouflage the Ring of Raja from the eyes of the uneducated. He eschews anything that resembles a "costume" or a mask, but he does admit that superheroes can come in handy when a vampire comes knocking at your door.

Powers and Abilities

Without this magic relic, Raja can perform small feats of true magic, such as sensing arcane energies and researching and casting occult rituals, but with the ring, which he has modestly named, "The Ring of Raja", he is capable of true Sorcery.

Over time, he has equipped himself with an excellent laboratory and occult research library, which permits him to carry about a few potions of virtually any imaginable effect. His favored rituals include walking on walls, the dreaded voodoo doll, and his masterpiece, which permits him to actually pass through bonds.

He is also a highly-skilled stage magician and escape artist, which means he has all the skills of a top-flight sneak-thief. As part of this training, he has refined his breath-holding ability, which he has further enhanced through magical research.
