Formerly under the pseudonym of "Pregnito", after many years of prejudice by the other heroes of the Association, Ryke Blook took to a mature shift in his heroic career. He now takes the name of Sobriquet.
Formerly known as Pregnito, Ryke Blook was a joke character within his Heroes Association. Using his uncanny powers for the sake of the people, Pregnito had backlash from whomever he would assist and the prejudice had spread towards the point where the association he was a part of had treated him lesser than who he was. Constant beatings by other heroes, name-calling and exclusion from group investments, Pregnito had quit the association.
Several months later, Pregnito had returned home after a days work to find that his wife had been murdered. Losing the only person within his life that had accepted him for who he was made to be, Ryke Blook was near his mark. With the heroes destroying his house in a crossfire between a former villain, Ryke Blook was neglected after the conflict, even with his assistance in defeating the menace, he had become homeless.
By 2140, Pregnito was no more and with the neglecting of his powers, his Pregnancy Inducement had become null. From then on, Ryke Blook's took on the new identity of Sobriquet and had practiced to perfect his fighting skill, ultimately making himself a widely known assassin and tactician. During his development, Sobriquet had discovered that his neglecting of his former powers had introduced his branch of Telekinesis, allowing him to do much more than the previous.
However, upon his discovery and practice of his abilities, the Heroes Association led out an extermination force against Ryke Blook. And soon enough, Ryke took it upon himself to ensue Civil War.
Formerly, Ryke Blook was a caring, enthusiastic and optimistic individual as Pregnito. He would always offer assistance, remain positive and calm during tough situations and be the beacon that everybody would need. However, through much prejudice and unfortunate events within his life, Ryke Blook had become distant, cold and realistic of what reality truly is.
Although, at certain times, he still remains the same as he were. For instance, when he paid for the things a young thief had stolen and assisted the thief by buying him food after learning that his thievery was for the sake of his starving family. He also has stated that Sobriquet is simply a more mature version of his former shadow and does not wish to change for the worse.
