Psimon consistently underestimates female opponents.
Psimon has been with Medusa for many years despite their semi-regular fights and affairs with others.
Psimon is known to be vain about his appearance.
Psimon’s identity as Simon Bell is not known to law enforcement.
Psimon can become angered when taunted or humiliated by an opponent.
Simon Bell was PSI’s first great success under Sebastian Poe’s leadership. In 1992, Bell, a nondescript college student at the University of Maryland, checked himself into a local hospital complaining of migraine headaches, and while there he began to manifest psychic powers; giving several of the nurses and residents “waking nightmares” in the process. His “emergence” was detected by a Doctor Poe, a resident doctor there who was secretly researching for a way to enhance and improve the psionic potential of the human race. The doctor visited Simon in the hospital and managed to recruit him into the fledging PSI.
Giving him the joking code name “Psimon,” Poe ran Bell through the full battery of tests, and eventually woke in him an impressive suite of psychic abilities. Poe began to regard Bell as his eventual second-in-command. Meanwhile Medusa became quite taken with the handsome, and aggressively driven young man, and the two started a torrid affair. Obsessed as always with personal power, Medusa decided Psimon was both more forceful and more easily manipulated than Poe, and convinced Psimon to overthrow his mentor and seize control of the organization. With her assistance, Psimon laid the trap that led to the Sentinels capturing Poe and apparently “destroying” PSI.
Psimon led the team to Bay City, through the successes of Mind, Inc., a legal front created by he and Medusa that is secretly a recruiting tool for PSI, has built a decent throng of followers with low-level psionic abilities as well as developed a few much more powerful members (Mind Slayer, Hypnos, and Soulfire to be exact). During PSI's war with the Jumper Gang Psimon was almost captured a few times thanks to plots enacted by Kevin Poe but between his impressive physical power and his ability to talk his way out of most situations, Psimon managed to retain his freedom.
Once the war with the Jumper Gang was done, Psimon was the one who favored rebuilding PSI's power base, despite Medusa's desire to absorb the remains of the Jumper Gang into PSI and continue to push their influence. Psimon realized just how weak his organization was at that point, the Jumper Gang had eliminated much of his network of field agents (which was PSI's greatest asset as many of their field agents had held positions of influence within Bay City's government and law enforcement). Though he was agressive in his efforts to restablish PSI, Psimon went as far as to kidnap select individuals and brainwash them to be loyal to PSI before giving them the PSI serum and returning them back to their lives.
What Psimon has become aware of that none of the other members of PSI know (including Medusa) is that Sebastian Poe had been secretly working with Parker Psion in developing his early versions of the PSI serum. He wonders why Psion did nothing when Poe was ousted from PSI but he is determined to maintain his control over the group despite the fact that the Psions have been recruiting more members and becoming more active as of late. Psimon is sure that it is only a matter of time before Parker Psion decides to reclaim what he considers to be his "lost investiment" and that PSI will be ready to protect themselves.
