Man out of Time: The Crucible has only recently returned to the earth from the 17th century. While his interpersonal skills allow him to blend in, he finds the modern world quite confusing, and in times of stress, is likely to speak in the manner of centuries past.
Haunted/Hunted: The covens of witches in Salem have long memories, and while Prescott may have done penance in the eyes of God, he has much to answer for from the world of witchcraft!

Gideon Prescott was a scoundrel and a cheat in the Boston colony whose skills at getting his way ran out in the early 1690s. He fled to Salem Village where he used his skills at manipulating others to save his own life, but only at the expense of others he allowed to be falsely accused of witchcraft. Struck with remorse, Prescott fled into the wilderness where, exhausted, he encountered a luminous figure with the appearance of a young native woman. She assured him that he was not beyond forgiveness, and that if he would submit to the cleansing fires of Purgatory, he could return to the world to serve his fellow man. Prescott agreed, and he was subjected to the painful but purifying flames of Purgatory for hundreds of years.
When he reappeared on the earth, Prescott found that he could command the very fires which had cleansed him, to afflict both the bodies and the minds of the impenitent, to soothe and purify the ills of the afflicted, and to pass from place to place through Purgatory itself. Cleansed from his own wickedness, Prescott now sees the world truly, and there is nothing that can escape or be concealed from his sight, not even the mind itself. Refined by centuries of divine flame, his body has been toughened against all ordinary harm, including all fires no matter how hot, and no longer suffers the ravages of time.
Now, in a world quite different from his own, Prescott uses his gifts to afflict the sinful, comfort and defend the innocent, lead the guilty to repentance, and fight for the right as The Crucible!
