History: Toyo Harada may possess the most powerful mind of any human on Earth. He is one of only two known Harbingers (people born with psionic powers, believed by many to be the first sign of mankind beginning to make an evolutionary leap) who has what is considered the full range of psionic powers: what he has termed the Omega Power. Harada became convinced mankind would eventually destroy itself and it's world if left to it's own devices, and that the only way to prevent this was if someone secretly assumed control and directed them down a better path. Naturally, Harada felt he was the logical candidate to save mankind. Knowing his fellow Harbingers were the key to success or failure in this campaign, he set up the Harbinger Foundation to recruit and train other paranormals for his cause. Because he fully believed in the rightness of his cause, he became willing to ruthlessly eliminate any who might get in the way of his plans, becoming a monster in the process.
