OriginEdit

Ludger Sylbaris was an Afro-Caribbean man who travelled with the Barnum & Bailey circus. He had become an early 20th-century celebrity for being one of the only survivors in the town itself of the devastating volcanic eruption of Mt. Pelée on the island of Martinique on May 8, 1902. This same eruption completely flattened St. Pierre, the "Paris of the West Indies", and killed an estimated 30,000–40,000 people. The only reason he survived was that he was placed in solitary confinement in an underground cell shielded away from the volcano. Even then, he still suffered serious but non-life threatening burns when lava came through the prison grate.

EffectsEdit

The user’s body becomes able to withstand extremely heated materials without physical damage. This includes boiling water, superheated air, molten metal and even for brief periods, lava flows. They will experience the feeling of deep burns without any permanent bodily harm.
