Project Prismbeam. Despite his high intelligence and well-educated background, Wendel has an addiction to gambling and money -- and was believed by some to be a narcissist. In 2079, however, he and his brother Sid Crayton carried out a high-stakes heist in the Carmine Valley Research Centre, where they stole dozens of Prismbeam technologies and weapons. They were able to escape the facility with all of their stolen goods, but were made virtually international fugitives.
In 2083, it was revealed Wendel Crayton was the mysterious Regulator known as Creydal, whom had a biomechanical vertical take-off suit. However, he was killed from falling out of the sky during Operation Black Deluge.
