Othello is a member of the Ambassadors.

AppearanceEdit

Othello wears an elegent black suit and an expressionless black-and-white mask.[1][4]

Abilities and PowersEdit

Othello possesses a 'mirror self' or 'imaginary friend' that travels in another world, and only has limited interactions with reality.[5]

He can drive himself into the mirror world, bringing his other self in from that world at the same time — producing an effect that could be mistaken for teleportation.[6] He can control the nature of the interactions between his 'mirror self' and the world, allowing it to attack while remaining otherwise invisible and intangible, making shallow cuts and similar to targets. This ability required concentration.[2]

The sensory input he receives from his companion is unaffected by Imp's power.[3]

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Like all Ambassadors, he was recruited by Accord as a normal human, passing all his tests. He given a vial that gave him his powers.[7][8]

Post-EchidnaEdit

Othello was one of only two Ambassadors to survive a confrontation with the Slaughterhouse Nine. He accompanied Accord to Brockton Bay.[7]

He participated in a battle against the Teeth alongside the Undersiders and other Ambassadors.[8]

He was present for a meeting between the Ambassadors and the Undersiders during Skitter's Surrender.[9]

TriviaEdit

  • It is possible that Othello's power was inspired by Niki Sanders from Heroes, as they share noticeable similarities.
  • Shares his name with a Shakespearean character and a game using two sided black and white pieces that is usually called Reversi. One seems more likely then the other.

    Which wasn’t to say he wasn’t contributing. Hemorrhagia was enduring an assault from an invisible, immaterial foe. I could feel him, feel the movement against my bugs, but the bugs didn’t settle on him, simply passed through. He was only partially there, focusing on allowing certain aspects of himself, his weapon, to affect our world.

    Shallow cuts appeared on Hemorrhagia’s face, chest and arms as she tried ineffectually to shield herself, and those same cuts exploded violently as she used her power to draw her blood from her body and turn it into hard, physical, cutting weapons. More blood congealed into broad scabs that protected her and reduced the damage of the continuous slashes.

  3. 3.0 3.1 “Talk,” he said, after too many long minutes of silence.

    “We can take them, sir,” Othello said. “Any one group, we could handle, but not two groups at once.”

    “I agree,” Accord said. “Do you think you could handle them if things went sour?”

    “With little trouble, sir. The only ones I’d wonder about are Tattletale, Imp, Valefor and Fourteen,” Othello replied.

    “Imp and Valefor… your stranger powers against theirs makes for a troublesome fight. Imp is the one I would worry about first. Unpredictable, impossible to track.”

    “I’m suspicious my power cancels hers out, sir. My other self saw her get close to Butcher. I think she had a weapon.” - Excerpt from Interlude 20

  5. “And Othello?” I asked.

    "He has a mirror self,” she said. “Who walks in a world very similar to this one. This self has a limited ability to affect our world, and can’t be affected by us. Othello can push himself into that other world to bring his other self into ours, and vice versa. One leaves, the other enters. It looks very much like teleportation or invisibility. It isn’t.” - Excerpt from Imago 21.4
