Champions – Neo, a Founding Member of the Mandate

Alberto Kaledon was not one of the Loa – the incredibly powerful prime mutants who made up the core of the resistance to the all-conquering machines of the Silver Twilight – but he was far more versatile than most of the mutants of the resistance. His fickle, reality-twisting, power allowed him to do many things – Including attempting to open a link with the Earth, the central reality that was the Machines ultimate goal. He would carry a warning and seek allies there.

Alberto paid dearly for his forcing of the dimensional barriers and the planetary wards. The psychic backlash left him confused and lost, his memories shattered, and his full purpose forgotten. Perhaps worse, he appeared on Earth where many minds were attuned to one of the founding dreams of the Silver Twilight;

At a small shopping-mall theater which was screening the Matrix.

There were enough resonances with his own life that – in his confusion – Alberto accepted the movie as a structure to hang his memories and personality on, and his own power changed his personal reality to fit.

Of course, once the barriers had been penetrated it became far easier for the Loa – and the machines – to follow. Neo, harbinger of the Twilight War, strode forth from the theater as the show ended.

Not too surprisingly, Neo elected to remain in the Silver Twilight at the conclusion of the War to help seal the gates. It was, after all, his world.
