Characters Introduced in Parallel
Janar Danari- Janar is the co-main protagonist of the game, along with Jade Wong, and co-founder of Omicron Organization. He is a Morph, a group of humans with shape-shifing powers. His parents, both of whom were Morphs, were killed by an evil Morph named Vestess so he would have no one to stop him. Wanting revenge, he, along with Jade Wong, created Omicron Organization, a group of people dedicated to fighting and destroying Vestess.
Other than shape-shifting, Janar also has various other powers, due to the fact that Morphs can change almost all molocules, and not just their own. This includes becoming invisible and regenerating, as well as a limited control over animals/other humans. He uses these in battle, along with a handgun, to confuse and damage (respctively) his enemies.
Jade Wong - Jade is the co-main protagonist of the game, along with Janar Danari, and co-founder of Omicron Organization. She is a Timekeeper, a group of humans with the power to control time. Unlike the Morphs, there can only be two Timekeepers in the world at a time, so that they can keep balance, and because of that, the time powers are handed down to the last person in contact with said Timekeeper should he/she die. Gemini Wong, Jade's brother, who was the one of the two modern Timekeepers, was killed by Vestess, who was not only a Morph, but also a Timekeeper, so he could rule the world with an iron fist, without another Timekeeper to stop him. Wanting revenge, she, along with Janar Danari, created Omicron Organization.
Jade can stop/freeze time, as well as use her tricked out bow-and-arrow to defeat enemies from afar.

Only Nokami, Jer'ed, his 'younger brother', and Nok'a, His 'sister', escaped from the facility.
Eventually, Nokami met and married a young woman named Deorra. Years later, Vestess sent clones to hunt down Nokami, and in the resulting fight in his home, Deorra was killed. Longing for revenge, Nokami joined Omicron as a way to get revenge on Vestess.
Aaron Leaf- Aaron is a member of Omicron Organization, and best friends with Dmitri Nolan, a fellow member of Omicron. A normal high-school student, Aaron was targeted by Vestess because his parents were openly opposed to Vestess, having learned of his true origins.
