With his previous experience piloting the Colossal-Grade-Mecha designated: ARMADA and the Civilian-Grade-Mecha designated: BULWARK. Arin Gestalt is one of the most proficient operators of large scale mechanical frames. With the second highest recorded sync ratio with the ARMADA and continued excellence, while performing complex technical inputs with the BULWARK, he is undoubtedly gifted when it comes to the simple operation of vehicles. The true struggle he faced when piloting both mechas was an inability to deal with the stress of combat situations.
He also possesses the aptitude and knowledge to operate cars, helicopters, and small planes. While he was given the option to learn basic navel navigation Arin expressed a peculiar fear of the ocean.
While operating the BULWARK's CURE, Arin mostly relied on the onboard AI for medical assistance, however, he was still trained in both basic and complex medical procedures in case an error occurred. While most of these skills have yet to see a practical use, basic skills such as CPR, treating wounds and transfusing blood are all within his reach provided he possess the proper tools. However, if push came to shove he would be able to fill in as a fairly competent medical professional in a pinch.
While his most obvious skill is undoubtedly the operation of mecha frames, Arin is rather gifted when it comes to the construction and maintenance of these mechs as well. Cited as the lead designer of the BULWARK, he developed systems such as the CURE, the RIOT, and the E.M.A suit. While he has yet to significantly develop this skill and lacks any formal teaching, his natural instincts have proven to be rather sharp. Combined with his first-hand experience operating some of the most advanced mecha deployed, he could almost be considered a prodigy.
While piloting a mecha doesn't require physical perfection, physical fitness is necessary. To ensure bodily and mental performance, Arin was kept on a fairly tight fitness and diet regiment to ensure he remained healthy. This is a habit that continues to persist even away from the Shipyard, with his keeping a relatively healthy diet and regular exercise. While he is nowhere near his theoretical peak fitness, he maintains a comfortably above average figure of health.
Beyond this, his possess light amounts of combat training. This includes basic sidearms, and rifles, along with bladed weapons. While he had recently and purposely neglected his training, most of these skills do remain, if not slightly rusty.
Psychokinetic and Telepathic Potential
Recent developments have shown that Arin Gestalt possesses an enormous amount of pisonic power. While he previously displayed an extraordinary resistance to telepathic tampering, and the ability to form mental channels between him and other, his most recent activity in Morro Bay had him perform massive telekinetic feats. Ripping apart multiple blocks without the slightest of movements. However, now that he is inside of the Solar City dampening field, he has yet to show even a trace of that residual power. How much control over his own reawakened gift he will have after he leaves the effects of the field is anyone's guess.
After the destruction of Morro Bay and Aberdeen, along with the massive death toll of both these disasters combined, the sixteen-year-old Arin Gestalt has been labeled as a domestic terrorist and rouge metahuman. His motives are unclear and his methods are varied, yet the federal government believes he will strike again and if his previous attacks are anything to judge by the damage will be astronomical. His current whereabouts are unknown, however, his last known location was in Morro Bay, Californa. It was there he attempted to continue his reign of terror before being intercepted and quelled by a group of brave Deterrence soldiers, many of whom lost their lives in the conflict. However, while he was halted, Arin Gestalt was neither killed nor apprehended. Some survivors claim to have seen him vanish into thin air, others say he disappeared in a flash of light. Yet no matter what happened to him, one thing is certain. Arin Gestalt survived, and he is undoubtedly looking to strike again.
However, this is where the fiction ends and reality begins. For Arin Gestalt died in Morro Bay, and the boy he left behind is simply trying his hardest to live.
