Valamorans are recognized throughout the E'lah Dominion as being an excellent work force. Their bodies made for living in a 2G world give them a physical advantage when working in a normal 1G environment. Gandis was one of many making a living off world, but in his case, he decided that he would use his physical skills to a more profitable end.
He was hired as muscle by the Gamblers' Guild and was often dispatched to collect from those who lagged behind in paying their debts. Despite his small stature, he was ruthless and feared by all who knew him. Those who did not know him quickly learned not to cross him.
Gandis was eventually approached by the being known as Ravager. He was the head of a bounty collecting organization and looking for hired hands. Ravager offered to make Gandis even more powerful and feared by infusing him with guardian energy. Infusion of Guardian energy enhances a person's natural abilities and often create new ones, as it did for Gandis.
His natural physical skills were enhanced, but he also gained a new ability that made him virtually impossible to target; it offsets his position when threatened by an attack, causing the attack to miss him every time. He thus took the name Offset when he joined Ravager's Hounds.
Reflexive shifting: Offset has the ability to avoid being hit. His body reflex moves him out of range of any incoming attack, making it impossible for anyone to hit him. His reflexive shifting can also be used offensively. Doing so moves his opponent instead of himself.
Agility: He is also extremely agile and can hit as effectively with his hands or feet. During battle, he cartwheels, rolls and jumps around. His movements are quite erratic and hard to anticipate.
Super strength: Valamorans are naturally strong, but Offset's strength lies somewhere in the five ton range.
Super jump: Offset can jump as high as 25 feet. In a normal gravity, he can also jump off a 10-story building without causing himself any injury.
Acclimation: The guardian energy also helps him survive in alien environments.
Weaknesses: If he is trapped in a confined space, his reflexive shifting is hindered. He can only evade a limited number of projectiles at the time.
The only types of attacks he cannot evade are energy based or psionic in nature, as his squad leader, PsyLash, often likes to remind him.
