Daniel Dalton Destini died at the age of 29 in a train crash in Doleo City. Post-death he met The Messenger - "a man who thought he was a god". The Messenger offered him the opportunity to return to earth. Daniel's soul was bound to another entity and he returned to earth, able to see his family but not interact with them and now host to the powerful mystical being called Dr Destiny.
Doctor Destiny's mystical powers are drawn from the Beginning where all life originated. He is capable of flight, size alteration, projection of emotion, sorcery, super-strength and dimensional travel. If the occasion calls for physical conflict he can summon the Spear of Destiny to fight with.
