Albert Armos Killer Shrike
Height:   6' 0" Hair:  Blonde
Weight:  160 lbs Eyes:  Green
Albert is a tall slim blonde man who affects a very modern, slicked back metro-urban sunglassed look. Assessed objectively he is fairly attractive with highly regular features, however his cold-fish tightly-wound elitism detracts from it for most people. He keeps a sleek silver plated pistol in an under-arm holster, and if he draws it is not for show...he means business.
Originally from Montreal, Albert became involved with the Cult of the Red Hand in the late 60's and rose steadily in power, eventually coming to the attention of Tudor Brezak himself and becoming a protege. As his power and influence grew, Albert's role eventually expanded to effectively running the Cult as a proxy for Tudor, dealing with miscellaneous distractions that Tudor didn't care to be bothered with. This knowledge is unknown outside the highest levels of the Cult, of course, but even the lowliest member of the lowliest cell knows that if Albert Armos comes calling on their coven then something serious is afoot and they'd best do their damnedest to facilitate it.

Extremely powerful and very well favored by the Descending Hierarcy, Albert is something of an upstart amongst Infernalists (many of whom have been around a good long while), and given the power-hungry madness of most such people it is suprising to those of them that know of Armos that he is content to play second fiddle in the Cult of the Red Hand. It is almost equally suprising to those same people that Tudor doesn't see Albert as a threat and do away with him on general principle.

However, unlike short sighted gluttons like Verity Blake who are obsessively greedy for power for powers sake, with no actual plan or agenda against which to apply any power they manage to accumulate, Albert's motiviation is to attain perfection. Power is merely a dividend of said perfection. Thus, he is not a threat to Tudor and does not aspire to replace him as such. Rather, Albert will continue to hone himself towards perfection, and if Tudor doesn't do the same then eventually Albert will surpass him, but otherwise he will continue to learn everything he can while serving his master to the very best of his considerable abilities. For his part, Tudor understands Albert and thus knows that he need not worry for a long while yet.
Both his allies and his enemies can agree on one thing; Albert Armos is a hard cat to read. His face is a mask, and he never reveals any emotion or tell unless he chooses to. This is a man who has survived, nay thrived, swimming in extremely dangerous waters by never ever making a mistake. He is a master of risk vs reward calculations, brinksmanship, and inequitable trades, and any risk he does take has been measured precisely to balance the gain against the danger of attainment. Everything else about Armos is merely a logical extension of this core dimension and its application to a given context or circumstance.
"We do not have to be enemies, mon ami. Why don't you take a chance and allow me to show you the secrets of true power?"
Albert Armos is a very powerful Invoker who has earned great favor with various Infernal powers via dark acts too horrible to describe in detail in civilized company. In addition to his ability to call upon his extradimensional patrons for anything he cares to risk their disfavor over, Albert also has a powerful protective boon. Armos is also a skilled Hermetic Wizard and has a variety of tricks at his disposal, including a couple of potent focused abilities. Using a pistol as a Hermetic focus, Albert is able to accomplish a variety of impossible "shooting tricks", up to and including "bending bullets" to follow non linear paths. Many have underestimated Albert and been slain for their mistake in this way. Albert uses the reliability of his Hermetic magics to counterbalance the unpredictability of his Invocations.
Albert makes for a great "big bad" up to the "Famous" level, but once PC Hunters start edging up into "Legendary" status he either needs to be augmented or cycled out.
