Fictional character biography

He is the most powerful psionic on Earth. One of two known harbingers to possess the "Omega Power" (the other being Peter Stanchek), Harada commands the full spectrum of psionic abilities, including telepathy, telekinesis, mind-control, and many other deadly talents.

Fearing that humanity may eventually destroy itself, Harada decided early in his life to preserve the planet by clandestinely conquering it. To this end, he established the Harbinger Foundation to recruit others with paranormal abilities, whom Harada refers to as "harbingers of the next step in human evolution". He seldom confronts his enemies directly, preferring to leave such dirty-work to his elite harbinger warriors, the "Eggbreakers" (as in the saying, to make an omelette...).

With tremendous economic and political clout, Harada seems close to achieving his goals, and is ready to destroy anyone who stands in his way. The great irony is that Harada truly feels he was born to save the human race; in his own mind, he is the hero of the story. But, in his haste to eliminate any opposition to his grand scheme, Toyo Harada has lost his own humanity.
