Abilities: Ability to create a machine which can take the psychic energy of willpower from one target to implant into another. Professional con artist.
Backstory: Phony big name astrologer who believes his own career to be utter bunk with no basis in any sort of reality. Celestris Damon instead focused his mind on the scientific study of psychic power, trying to harness the incredible powers of the mind to make himself rich.
Developing a machine which latches onto the powerful psychic energy known as willpower, he was able to beam it into the minds of his subjects, imbuing them with the drive to succeed and willingness to push themselves to do their best.
Thus Celestris Damon would garner the support of the rich and famous. Earning the ear of the powerful who believing his fake astrological charts predicting their success was to credit for their good fortunes when in reality it was psychic energy to credit for his great fortune.
However the source of this great wellspring of mental fortitude was unknown to Celestris Damon who shared an apartment building with Diana Prince. Nor did he care, so long as he continued to amass wealth, power, and influence.
However whenever Wonder Woman was sighted in the area be it flying her invisible plane or battling nare do wells, his machine would suddenly explode from an exess of willpower being drawn in which was far to much for it to handle.
After a dozen of such mishaps, Celestris Damon concluded Wonder Woman was to blame for his woes and setting his machine to fire a ‘will not power’ ray, he would make an effort to destroy Wonder Woman. Certain that his scheme would only succeed if he ended her life. Not realizing that she was the very source of willpower his machine was drawing from to begin with.
