Eidetic Memory: Tom has perfect recall, with comprehension and application capabilities, and can even imitate voices well enough to pass medium and low security voice prints, and some higher security ones as well. What is unique about Tom’s particular form of perfect memory is that he could selectively forget, wiping unwanted information from his mind completely as if it had been surgically removed. What this means is that once Tom has what he needs, he can literally forget what isn’t applicable to the task at hand.

Null: At the onset of puberty, Tom developed the involuntary ability to generate a low level psychic field. It’s undetectable to scans. It’s effect is two fold. On one side, it prevents him from being affected by several mental abilities such as, Empathic manipulation or detection, Telepathy, Mind Melding. It’s simply as if there is no mind there to contact. On the other side, it causes people to easily forget him unless artificial means are used once out of his ability’s area of effect. Anyone spending less that three consecutive hours with Tom would completely forget him within minutes of leaving his presence. It was problematic when he went through the academy and training as he had to show credentials every day to be allowed to attend classes. He was always treated as the new guy. Even people he’d attended classes with for two years always thought it was their first meeting. It was the main factor in Tom giving up trying to make friends.
Workarounds for the “forget me field” are limited to recordings, the use of comm channels from a location out of possible direct line of sight, cybernetic memory enhancements, or immunity to psionic effects. As established in RP, Denobulans and Denobulan hybrids get crippling migraines around Tom as part of their brains insist that they know Tom even though they can’t recall anything about him.

In the end, Internal Security had tracked Tom through his records as it was nearly impossible to find anyone, other than his parents, who had more than a memory of just his name. After seductively recruiting him out from under Intelligence, Internal Security took Tom in and trained him. It didn’t take long for Tom to absorb and prove proficiency in everything IntSec was willing to teach him.

And so here’s Tom Jarvis. IntSec Agent. Aloof, impersonal, and sometimes seeming uncaring. However, he put’s his all into his work as he feels it’s all he has.

Tom’s strange pistol that he always carries is a needler pistol. It’s a binary propellant weapon with baffles so there’s no energy reading from it and it’s operation is silent. It’s small and easily concealed as well. He has various toxin loads for anything from narcotic incapacitation, to truth serum, to knock out, to lethal. It’s quiet and effective and he’s a precision shooter with ballistic small arms.

Tom’s not much of a hand to hand fighter though he does know how to manipulate an opponent’s physiology if he can land the hits, or get a good hold on his opponent, he can manipulate pressure points to incapacitate, knock out, or kill. However, put a blade or projectile weapon in his hands and he can handle them like an expert.
