Sebastain Faust is the son of evil sorcerer Felix Faust. Although he originally served on the side of good as a director of A.R.G.U.S. as part of the Black Room program, he eventually turned traitor and allied himself with the terrorist group Cerberus. He eventually fell in love with a dryad who was pregnant with his unborn child, but she contracted a disease he brought back from a mission for A.R.G.U.S and he had to put them in stasis until he could find a cure.

- Dimensional Travel: Sebastian can use his magic to open portals to alternate realities and dimensions. He was able to teleport himself and one other into the extra-dimensional plane known as Gemworld several times.
- Eldritch Blast: Sebastian can project powerful blasts of raw magic out of his hands capable of knocking a powerful Lord of Chaos to the ground.
- Energy Construct Creation: Faust can create constructs out of hard-light, such as a giant snake or chains.
- Energy Shield: Sebastian can create shields of magical energy capable of repelling hellfire and strong arcane energy blasts.
