Weight: 225 lbs
Henri Ducard is a Victorian-era detective who uses radical forensic techniques for the time, including fingerprinting and trace evidence, to solve some of the city’s most gruesome murders. Though his unconventional approach often elicits ridicule from fellow officers and skepticism from his superiors, Ducard is often the only one who can crack the case. Born in Eastern Canada in a staunch Roman Catholic home, Ducard was a dedicated autodidact as a child who never stopped reading and learning.
His father was a Government man so the family travelled the world. A great admirer of the inventor and physicist Nikola Tesla, a man said to be “the patron saint of modern electricity,” Ducard developed an early interest in science and theology. He was also hooked on the novels of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, becoming a great admirer of the fictional detective ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ When he arrived in London and found the police department was recruiting, he signed up immediately, inspired by visions of himself as a great detective solving difficult cases.
He is a bit older than some of his compatriots, short, heavy-set and a bit out of shape physically, but no one doubts the power of his mind or his powers of Mysticism. During his travels across the Orient, he was exposed to and learned some of their Mystic powers. It also exposed him early on to the powers of the supernatural.
