Alpha Centurion is a hero powered by a magical belt.
College student Roman was a victim of a terrorist attack on the Metropolis Museum of History. Suffering multiple injuries, he used a roman belt on display as a make-shift tourniquet. He was possessed by the Alpha Centurion, a minor Roman god who had been trapped in the belt. The god easily defeated the terrorists.
Roman was the latest in a long list of hosts over the centuries, and Alpha Centurion has always worked to carry out the wishes of the Pantheon of Grace, protecting and saving people.
Since then, the Alpha Centurion frequently reasserted dominance over Roman's body. He could sense imminent danger, causing him to transform. Roman, meanwhile, was terrified of his loss of agency, and feared the moment the god would take him over for good.
