Lochlann's Laboratory: Jerome, Dog Boy Experiment

R.UE.259Three dog boys who served Travis Lochlann helped him escape from Lone Star with his life after he took the fall for Desmond Bradford: Moses, Larry, and Jerome. Each of the three served Dr. Lochlann in a different capacity before his exile, and each fills a very different role in the lab now.

Jerome is the youngest of Dr. Lochlann's dog boys, and has shown his youthful curiosity by taking it upon himself to join the doctor in some of his research, as well as volunteering as a test subject. Due to the experiments Dr. Lochlann performed, Jerome can now shoot electricity from his fingertips, is extremely resistant to energy attacks of any sort, and has transformed into a mega damage being. What might be the most interesting of his new abilities, however, is his ability to walk in front of a camera and his image not show up on the film. Although it hasn't been fully tested, Jerome and Dr. Lochlann have speculated that he is probably invisible to technological sensors and cameras of all sorts.
