Weaknesses:Without the helmet, Kent Nelson in an ordinary mortal. Without a mortal host, Fate cannot visit the earthly plane. Although Fate cannot be destroyed, the mortal hosts main weakness is that he requires to breathe. Areas where oxygen lacks or gases may harm the mortal host unless a spell has been cast to protect the body.

At the known height of his abilities, he was able to take control of Etrigan the Demon, Darkseid, Highfather and Orion and harness their powers to take on the Anti-Life entity. In this instance, he was powerful enough to destroy a reality in order to halt the advance of the entity using a "Mystic Firebreak". He has also been on the losing side of drawn out battles with the Spectre

Helmet of Nabu

The helmet that Doctor Fate wears is the focus of the Doctor Fate identity. It originally housed Nabu's spirit and allowed him to possess the current host, it later only allowed him to advise the host instead. The helmet is what provides the link to Nabu and by not wearing it, as Kent Nelson did at one time, Doctor Fate loses much of its power and knowledge.

Putting on the helmet usually results in its wearer being clad in the other raiments of Doctor Fate, unless the one with the actual claim to the helmet wants to prevent it. On several occasions, villains seeking the power of Doctor Fate have stolen the helmet, in which case the result has typically been that the thief goes insane when he or she puts the helmet on.

At one time a half-face version of the helm was created when Kent felt the Nabu entity had become too dominant.

Amulet of Anubis

The circular device that adorns the livery collar worn around Doctor Fate's chest and shoulders is the Amulet of Anubis, which gives anyone who wears it vast magical abilities. The amulet has also been shown to house the souls of many who have worn the vestments of Fate.

Bio: Kent Nelson was born in 1928 to Celestine Babcock-Nelson, a spiritualist and Sven Nelson, an archaeologist. Kent's mother died sometime after his birth under unknown circumstances. However, Kent's destiny was already written and at the age of 12, his sheltered life would soon change. It was the early 1940's and Sven Nelson had decided to take his son Kent on a dig to the Valley of Ur in Mesopotamia to an archaeological site. The natives were too scared to enter the temple, fearing curses and the wrath of God which did not disturb Sven Nelson. Sven and Kent ventured into the temple of Nabu the Wise that would soon change their lives. Kent wandered around the temple and stumbled upon an ancient sarcophagus containing the giant body of Nabu the Wise, an ancient Egyptian sorcerer. Kent felt that he had to pull the lever that was keeping Nabu asleep after a thousands of years. After pulling the lever that kept Nabu in suspended animation, a poisonous gas swept through the temple and killed Sven Nelson but left Kent unharmed.

As gratitude for his release, Nabu would offer to teach the boy magic. Kent did not want this power but only to have his father back but with a wave of his hand, Nabu had removed all knowledge of Sven's death from the boy. Within that week, Nabu had transformed Kent into a full grown man and taught him the ways of mysticism, order and power. Nabu's last wish was for Kent to release all his power on his master, Kent could not kill his master as he had grown attached to Nabu. Nabu made a gesture of his hand and Kent remembered that the gas that freed Nabu had killed his father. In an angry rage, Kent summoned all his power to destroy the murderer of his father. At that instant, Nabu's true origin was revealed to Kent, Nabu was an energy being , a Lord of Order. Nabu explained the circumstances of his fathers death and the never ending battle between Order and Chaos. As a final gift, Nabu gave Kent a golden helmet and an amulet that would increase his powers. When Kent wore the Helmet, he was joined with Nabu and earth would once again have a Lord of Order.

During Kent's first adventure as Dr.Fate, he fought his first adversary, the evil sorcerer Wotan and rescued Inza Cramer from his evil clutches. Kent fell in love with Inza and they soon married. (The true power of Dr.Fate was for man and woman to be joined but Nabu had blocked the process so he could control Kent. Thus the trinity of Inza, Kent and Nabu could not be performed) Fate magically created a tower in Salem, Massachusetts as base of operations where he would become Earth's mystic defender. Dr. Fate's first encounter with a hero of that era was the Spectre, the wrath of God. Together they destroyed a military gateway to a netherworld of demons. It was World War II and America was pulled into the war, Dr. Fate and many other mystery men help defeat an assassination attempt of President Roosevelt's life. At Roosevelt's request, they formed the Justice Society of America.

During this time, Kent found the helmet becoming more and more possessive of him, so rather than abandoning his battle against chaos, Kent created the half helm. Although Kent's powers were severely limited, he still had the ability of flight, invulnerability and super strength. However, Kent donned the helmet one last time in order to find the missing Spectre. Dr. Fate discovered that the Spectre was under the control of Kulak and in a titanic battle with the Spectre, he was defeated and the Helmet of Nabu was lost somewhere in the netherverse. It would not be until the early 1960's that Kent Nelson would somehow recover the helmet of Nabu and become Dr. Fate again. In the 1950's Kent Nelson had retired his fate persona and became a physician. It was not until the 1963 that Kent would rejoin the Justice Society of America. As their Justice Society comrades aged, Kent and Inza seemed immortal. The magic fate held over them, virtually stopped their aging process. Inza and Kent also received a small portion of Ian Karkull's power which gave them even more vitality.

For the next 20 years, Dr. Fate participated with the JSA and JLA.

When the Justice Society reactivated in the 1960s, Fate was a member - again wearing Nabu's helmet, though how it was recovered has not been revealed. Little is known of Fate's adventures during this period save for the JSA's annual gatherings with the Justice League of America from the parallel world of Earth-One (the JSA being on Earth-Two), and a pair of adventures he shared with fellow JSA member Hourman facing the monstrous Solomon Grundy and the villainous Psycho-Pirate.

Dr.Fate was also the founder of new Justice League where he and the Justice League foiled the plans of Darkseid to turn the people of earth against heroes. Kent lasts adventure was against the Gray Man. During the late 1980's chaos and order were at breaking point. It was the Kuli Yuga, the final age of man. Order had pulled out of battle, waiting for Chaos to engulf itself to create the new Golden Age. The strain of the Kali Yuga on Kent and Inza had caused them both to age rapidly. The strain on Inza was unbearable, in 1987, Inza committed suicide which left Kent devastated and on the verge of suicide. Nabu had become more dominant in the relationship and would not allow Kent to die until he could find a new host body. Kent reluctantly helped Nabu find Eric Strauss as his protegee as the new Fate. It was only during these short few weeks that Kent discovered that Dr. Fate was meant to be a triad. Man, Woman and Fate. Kent broke the hold of Nabu over Fate which allowed Eric Strauss and his lover Linda to become the new Dr. Fate. Nabu allowed Kent to die. The Nelsons enjoyed an afterlife in which they lived normal lives unknowingly in the Amulet of Anubis. They raised a child called Kent and once again Fate would play a role in their lives again.

In desperation, Nabu travels to the Tower of Fate in Salem, to prepare the way for the TRUE Dr. Fate, Kent and Inza Nelson. As the they look into the amulet of Anubis, they see the souls of Kent and Inza Nelson. Jack C. Small and Petey venture into the amulet to find the Nelsons while Linda and Nabu prepare to fight Benjamin Stoner. With Nabu's help, Linda can touch the items and become Fate with Nabu. Nabu and Linda create a four armed Dr. Fate to battle the Anti-Fate. However, they fail and the Anti-Fate rejects the Lords of Chaos. Within the amulet, Jack C. Small and Petey discover that Hesse is inside the amulet. With his help they find the Nelsons and try to persuade them to come back to earth. Inza called this world heaven as the Nelson's could live the life they wanted to live. In this world, they even had a son called Kent junior. Inza does not want to leave this so-called heaven but eventually agrees that they could make this life happen on Earth.

Linda dies from her wounds from the battle with the Anti-Fate as her soul goes into Wendy, a woman who just recently died. There she is rejoined with her husband Eugene (Eric) and their daughter Raina where they will become the new seeds of humanity. Nabu is given the choice between humanity and being an immortal Lord of Order, he chooses humanity and his soul goes into Wendy's unborn child.

Dr. Fate just royally pushed the wrong button with Traci then. The way he was talking down to her, she didn't appreciate it. Not. One. Damn. Bit! She waved her index finger towards him as she refrained from loosing her cool with him then. Reaching up to brush back some loose hair that had fallen along the side of her face. Speaking professionally to Dr. Fate as calmly as possible without a negative attitude. If Dr. Fate did not reaccess his approach with her, she would definitely loose her temper. "Ever hear of the word, please Dr. Fate?" While she had his undivided attention, "If you weren't already aware, the Sentinels have been conducting an long term investigation, sir. Since the battle took place a little while ago, we've all been on our toes trying to find out what exactly came into our world. We haven't been just sitting around playing dumb. Raven assigned me to seek out any magic based users out there that could help us with our investigation. So don't think I've just been at home dying my hair and trying to live a normal life."

Moving her hands to rest along her hips then as she smirked, " 'Cause it just don't work that way. We can never live a NORMAL life style like everyone else can. That little luxury was just never provided for us to begin with. Why? Because no one seems to care let alone understand what we do. And quite frankly? I'm alright with that. People will be safer that way in my book." Walking over to pick up her satchel as she whistled a tune and her pet lizard Leroy appeared out of thin air along her shoulders. "So you want me to go to the Watch Tower? Fine, I'll go. Some friendly advice? Try knocking next time before you enter into someone's private domain." The air around her began to spark and crackle as a portal opened up. Before she really gave Dr. Fate a chance to respond she stepped through the portal and was off towards the Watch Tower.

((That's fine but this rp is to carry on for a few months as a sort of murder/mystery/horror theme. The person who will play the Old Ones is taking his time building this up. So we are always one step behind him.))

Traci stopped and turned around in her tracks, speaking calmly as possible to him then. Trying to make a statement clear as a bell, "Look, I don't know if this is normal for you to walk in unannounced into someone's home and start making demands. Listen if I wasn't one with the arcane magic?" Traci then held up both of her hands as her both her index and middle finger did a inward quick rolling motion as in quotation marks. "As a normal civilian I would have already called the police and had you arrested as some wacko maniac who made entry into my house out of thin air!" Letting her hands drop down as she crossed one arm over the other, her whole body was speaking with a major attitude now. Narrowing her eyes to fine slits as she listened to him and could sense some form of turmoil around him. "Wait a minute, let me guess...." She shook her head with a wry laugh, "You sense them don't you? The Old Ones... That's why you are here...."

No Lesser Evil

In Traci's mind she thought of the recent investigation that she, Raven, Nick and Cecilia did. As she thought about it, without realizing her eyes began to glow in an eerie shade of purple. While the glow was visible, the number 13 appeared visible along her forehead along with a scar running down the left side of her face. "You should have been there.." Traci just shook her head as the glow began to fade from existence.

(( Yes, of course Traci is in the league - she never left. ))

((Yes fate can prob sense the taint of the Old Ones power, Remember that one episode from Justice League where they battled the Old Ones?))

As she stood there her bangs instantly before Dr. Fate's very eyes began to turn into a gradient tone of blue. Seeing out of the corner of her eyes at a near by mirror, she turned and tilted her head. "Hmm that's new." Shrugging her shoulders as she glanced back at him then. "I'm giving myself a new flare." Realizing he didn't catch on apparently, "I'm dying my hair, part of it at least." Reaching up as a towel came from across the room as she began to gently towel dry off the rest of her hair. She'd have to allow the color a few more minutes to set before she washed it. "I highly doubt the dying of my hair is the reason why you made an unannounced arrival here." Watching him through the squint of her eyes a moment as she moved down the hallway. Figuring since he invited himself in, he might as well follow her to where ever she went. She was heading to her kitchen.

Here is the role play that took place last year,check it was a good one


Lately the entity has been sending a select few people who took place in the battle warnings and threats within their dreams, when most people are susceptible to those attacks

Furious held up his fist showing his power ring and then projected a holograph image of his battle in deep space against entities from the Far Realms "This was the mission that Myself and other magically powered member of the League took place in. This happened last year around December. Perhaps you have noticed, that these creatures are so tainted with older elder magic, magic so strong, it's a wonder we were able to defeat them and close the intrusion into our dimension. That area of space will take millenniums to fix itself because of the intrusion. Although I may have prevented them from coming over, something else got through. Which I cannot seem to locate it. It's using powerful elder magic to hide itself,or whatever it is. I am working with the FBI to discover who is behind recent abductions and ritual killings that I suspect are being done and perform by whatever it is that crossed over. "

Furious smiled at one of his former teacher's in the arcane arts and then nodded his head repling "Thank you Dr. Fate, I am still working on my skills. My Grandfather says that I will be one our Family's Houngan Asogwe in no time. I am glad you have come,I have much to discuss about a past mission that happened recently. It has to do with the Far Realms and something that Myself and other believe crossed over to our dimension. We have big trouble on our hands Dr. Fate.. We will need your expertise in such matters."

((Actually since the DC New 52, I redesigned Furious whole back story. He became a Green Lantern at 16 yrs old and He joined the league at 18 yrs, Has been a member going on 7yrs. his Parents are still alive and he is an only child and has only one son with Ana Pavati. Most of his new back story is on his profile. This Furious is much different from before. He's very humble and has been studying the arcane arts since he was 5 yrs old in the tradition of his family history. So He's very different from how I had him before. I just needed a change and the New 52 gave me that opportunity to do so. I wanted to mix the concepts of Science and Magic together and make him a person who exists in both realms and has to learn to balance both of these concepts))

Furious could sense the magical energy crackle in the air as a familiar Ankh suddenly appeared. Furious stood up from behind his desk and slowly bowed his head in reverence as one of the Lords of Order walked out "Greetings Dr. Fate, It's been a long time my friend. How have you been?"
