Description: Deadhead is tall and exceedingly thin, standing 5'10" and weighing 120 lbs. He is only about 20 years old, but looks much older due to his dead white skin , black hair, and staring eyes. He is bothered by a constant nervous tic and babbles almost nonstop. Deadhead's power is the ability to experience the memories of anything he eats. If he has a burger (for example) then he'll relive the life of the cow that made up the meat. If he eats brain tissue, the memories become very clear, and he can often "relive" the subject's last moments. Being an excellent artist, he can then sketch what he sees. It should be noted that Deadhead is very much on the edge of insanity (or over it). People who know him find him disgusting to say the least.
Campaign Use and Designer’s Notes: Deadhead just begs to be placed into a Horror Hero setting (or a Fantasy Hero setting—imagine him as a ghoul with this power.) Oddly enough, he also would fit into something like Heroes—I mean, Sylar already does something like this! If you really want to expand on this power, give him a VPP of Skills he can use for a bit after eating someone’s brain. If you really want to push the Sylar analogy, let him temporarily use their powers, too.
