Sigismund, the Mad Mathemagician, first introduced as Madman in Hex and the City, was a highly intelligent NASA scientist in the 60's who turned to study mysticism and mathematical description theory trying to find a new way to view reality. Eventually, he did, and whatever he saw drove him insane, earning him the nickname Madman.


Powers[]

Madman's powers have an undefined origin. But essentially, reality is manipulated around him by his will. Reality distorts itself in order to follow his thoughts and imagination. He seems to have a soundtrack playing almost constantly, depending on the mood he's in. At one point in the book, he uses his imagination to imagine himself as a samurai with a katana and chopped one of Walker's Reasonable Men into tiny bits.
