Ed's Notes: Yup. The Doom Patrol gets the weird ones. Lol.

I'm not sure what to do with his Charisma skill. 1st Edition rates it as above, lower than his Infl and Aura. I mean... I could bump it up to 10, but that seems... excessive? Alternatively I could make it 9, which would still be useless unless I lower his Infl and/or Aura. SO... Not sure what to do, so for now I'm leaving it. Chalk it up to more first edition weirdness.

First Appearance: Doom Patrol Vol 2 #1 (October, 1987)


  1. Hey Ed concerning the Charisma skill I think it is fine a t 7 APs. This guy is a combination of science/the supernatural. I think the reason that his Infl/Aura is that high has to do with the fact that he as well as his servants believe him to be the incarnation of the Hindu god Kalki. So from that aspect having a 9 in Infl and Aura makes sense. For others who don't believe that claim I think him trying to interact with them would fall to his Charisma skill. That's just my take based off the background information in The Doom Patrol Source Book pages 28-29.

  2. Kalki's surname is not Desi, but Desai, the same as his daughter Arani, AKA Doom Patrol member Celsius.
