Background:
Krait is one of the most successful metahuman assassins in the world, and has operated regularly for the past six years. The origin of his powers is unknown; in 2005 he was captured by the French, and before his escape he joked that he gained his powers by being bitten by a radioactive snake. What little is known about the man is taken from this arrest; fingerprint analysis revealed that his name was Nimal Karunatilake, a British subject of Sri Lankan descent who, up until his disappearance in 2001, was a working as a janitor and general maintenance man at the London Museum. He had no prior criminal record before his arrest by French authorities, though his school records do reveal that he was a bit of a troublemaker as a boy.

In addition to the mystery regarding the origin of his powers, the reason why he turned to assassination as a means of supporting himself is unknown, but one can speculate. The particularly lethal nature of those powers would make it hard to use them for any other purpose, and it psychological profiling of Krait indicate that it would only have been a matter of time before he tried them out on people anyway. Once he had killed his first victim experimenting, it is likely he'd realize the possibilities in the world of professional assassination. He swiftly began to make a name for himself worldwide, and is generally considered among the top ten deadliest metahumans on the planet, if not for raw power than for his skill at applying the power he does have toward the deaths of others.
 
Personality/Motivation:
Krait is a mercenary who works for employers who can pay him the right money for the right risk. He is not afraid of dangerous assignments but requires high fees for doing so and has, in the past, accepted contracts on the lives of politicians, fading celebrities and housewives. He does not care about the target and will not listen to pleas for mercy. As soon as he receives a contract he no longer considers the target as a living person. He makes the decision that the target is already dead and thus worthless.
 
Quote:
"I will spit on you when you are dead."
 
Powers/Tactics:
The truth is simple: Krait's powers emerged after he had an unfortunate encounter with the Serpent Syndicate while attempting to cash his paycheck after work on some random Friday. His body generates a lethal, acidic secretion from the palms of his hands. He uses this offensive capabilities to kill his opponents, preferring to use his fangs to tear at a target's neck while injecting them with the neurotoxin. Krait is immune to his own poisons and has developed a thick skin granting him resistance from conventional weaponry, further enhanced by hard body armour. Krait's physical attributes have also been enhanced including his strength, reflexes and speed.

Since becoming a famous uberhuman mercenary, Krait has updated his costume and now wears a pair of venom projectors which are attached to his forearms and can project his venom and acid. It takes some time to hook up the gauntlets and it requires a blood supply using IV tubes.
 
Appearance:
Krait was born in London to Sri Lankan immigrants and has dark skin and unfeeling dead-looking eyes. He conceals his identity with a blue visor and cowl, although the top of his head is bare and shows his short black hair. His body armour is dark olive green but has a silver highlights along the shoulders, chest, upper arms and lower legs. He wears acid projector gauntlets on each arm and wears a belt with several small pouches. Out of costume, Krait often wears black turtle neck sweaters and black pants and is considered somewhat suave.
