Balthe, a masked person (is presumed male) doesn't have any powers or anything in particular other than the glove on his right hand, which allows him to shape whatever he's touching with it to his will. He can't shape organic materials (such as plants, wood, humans, animals, etc.) but can shape things like metal or anything that is synthetic. His preferred weapon in the case he does shape some are two handed axes. He speaks fondly of the mechanized suits that the population used to wear and swears that if he ever came across enough metal to make one, he would do so without batting an eye. For now he likes to just make pieces of armor and strange devices that do random things.
Balthe is not blind: the fabric that is over his face is actually sort of see-through, but it's more see through from the inside rather than the out, so it looks like he might have a face from far away, but it's more apparent when closer.
He comes from a massive tower, whose rooms stretch to miles in diameter. The Tower is never-ending both upwards and downwards, and there isn’t a ground for said tower to really stand on. The only thing people see outside of the tower through its massive see-through bricks are endless skies littered with clouds, as they bear witness to the weather outside that seems to happen every day. Each floor has its own climate, complete with plants, tree, grass, snow, sand, towns, cities, you name it. There is no set explanation for anything, and none of it is really predictable aside from the weather. The same weather that happens outside seems to happen inside on each separate floor. Although the floors don’t seem to have a sky, clouds much like the ones outside the tower form as well.
