Biter is a parahuman that worked under Bitch.


Biter is well spoken and intelligent, and is willing to do the menial tasks that Rachel demands.[4] However he missed civilization while working for Bitch.[5] Together with Barker, he claims to be fearless.[6]


Barker Edit

The larger of the two Biter is more reasonable and diplomatic then Barker, and able to keep him focused and reasonable.[4]

Rachel Edit

At some point, he began sleeping with Bitch. She appreciated that he didn't "make it more than it should be".[5]

Appearance & Equipment Edit

Biter gives off a brutish vibe.[7] He is a muscular man over six feet tall,[4] usually shirtless with a bear-trap jaw plate over his severe underbite and spike-studded gear such as a collar and a number of leather straps and belts. His teeth are filed into points.[4] His costume combined casual wear with the already mentioned elements, fitting in with temperature and similar.

When operating as a cape Biter uses the before mentioned rusty bear-trap jaw plate and spiked knuckle-dusters. Sometimes he will rusty, old fashioned looking mechanical rigging The frame seemed set up to hold metal claws around his fingertips while allowing his hands the full range of motion.[6] He would later upgrade the jaw-plate with a cleaner more stylized version, along with more spikes.[5]

Abilities and Powers:Edit

Biter has the ability to distort parts of his body to increase their size.[2] This includes materials that he wears that give him additional offensive ability.[8][9]

This distortion has an upward limit before he incurs permanent damage, which leads to stretch marks, scarring, and chronic pain.[10]


Story StartEdit

Biter is Barker's partner, they showed up in Brockton Bay to fight the Endbringer that appeared there.[11][6] They were hired by Coil to work underneath Bitch. They have worked with her since she grabbed territory, but were not used during the fights with the Slaughterhouse Nine.[citation needed]

Post-Slaughterhouse NineEdit

Biter would help against the Dragon Suits that were deployed against The Undersiders.[12] The nascent Sons of Bitch would effect a strategic retreat from the conflict. Barker would later adapt to Bitch's leadership.[13]


Biter and Barker would move to Earth Gimel with the rest of of the Sons of Bitch. Barker would later leave however and Biter would stay in Gimel with Bitch who he started a casual relationship with. The Sons of Bitch would stay in Gimel, sans Endbringer conflicts, for over two years before the Golden Morning came.

  8. Biter used the metal ‘bear trap’ jaw-guard in combination with his ability to distort parts of his body to large sizes, clamping down on the suit’s hand.

It leaped forward to close the distance to its human opponents, and Biter stepped forward to meet it, his fist swelling to five times the normal size, along with the spikes and blades he’d worked into the fabric of his glove. The suit went flying, gathering itself into a rough ball shape as it careened backwards into the side of a train. - Excerpt from Monarch 16.4
