Jon Novak has been many things in his many lifetimes... mercenary, assassin, soldier, sailor, spy... and now he uses all the skills and experience he's acquired to help those in trouble. Sometimes for a fee, sometimes because no one else will. In addition to his many skills, he brings to the table something more. A terrible gift. A wonderful curse. Coming in contact with fresh human blood... absorbing it... allows him to take the form of that person. As with all such gifts, it comes with a price.
