Yarkothe great


Yarko the Great was a talented stage magician, but secretly, he was also a real mage. Using his vast magical abilities, he battled criminals and even supernatural forces such as the Devil and the personification of Death.

Abilities Yarko possessed thanks to his magic included force field projection, duplication, shape-shifting, invisibility, intangibility, exorcism, telekinesis, levitation, and whatever else the plot required. Yarko had one weakness though - he could not use his magic unless he could see.
