Described in Tattletale's files as a "time traveller", Epoch is capable of rewinding, pushing forward, or pausing time by ten seconds. He uses this power to move things to where they were ten seconds ago, move things to where they're slated to be ten seconds in the future, or pauses things for up to ten seconds, releasing at a whim. Has some utility with this but he may be limited by how much he can independently effect.
At some point, Epoch approached Cauldron. He paid a premium for a high-quality Cauldron vial and then drank it - possibly Vestige the same vial as Grey Boy and Perdition. He became the leader of the Adepts.
At some point he encountered Grue, who developed a deep dislike for Epoch's type of ability.
↑ 1.01.1Adepts. Self professed magic users. One page of information, listing names and powers. Another page with the PRT’s information on them: a series of codes and symbols I didn’t quite follow, numbers inside colored circles, squares and diamonds. From what I could gather, they had a low threat level, moderate crime rate, moderate ‘engagement’ level, low activity level. Led by Epoch, a time traveler. - Excerpt from Imago 21.7
↑ 2.02.1“I know the basics,” I said. I’d read the file in Tattletale’s office. “They’re wizards, or they pretend to be, like Myrddin. Led by a time traveller.”
“They’re led by Epoch,” Jouster said, without looking at me. “Group is very organized. Thing you gotta know about New York is it’s bigger. Everything is. So these guys, there’s a lot of them. They’re organized into tiers, and they compete with one another for placement in the tiers, challenging ones in higher tiers, paying a penalty if they fail the challenge. There’s one tier one, two tier twos, three tier threes… all the way down to the tier fives.” - Excerpt from Drone 23.1
↑ 3.03.13.2Epoch operates by the ten second rule. Rewind, push forward, or pause by ten seconds. Moves things to where they were ten seconds ago, moves things to where they're slated to be ten seconds from now, or pauses for up to ten seconds, releasing at a whim. Bought a Cauldron vial, paying a premium, and got his money's worth - he's leader of a gang in one of the most competitive areas for capes and gangs in America, and is incidentally the reason Grue comments about how much he hates time travel. - Wildbow on Spacebattles
↑Brian extended two fingers and tapped the second, “Number two. Clockblocker. Let it be known, I fucking hate people who mess with time.” - Excerpt from Agitation 3.3
