When my tower is complete, I will be reborn. This tired, old body will be gone, replaced by cold steel and concrete. And then I will fulfill my destiny. By God, I’ll take what’s mine!
~ Alden during "The Ray Sphere"


Alden Tate was the leader of the Dust Men, one of the three factions that assumed control in Empire City after the Blast. A powerful mentalist from birth, Alden had incredibly powerful telekinetic abilities. Strong enough to lift a city bus and toss it on top of a building with next to no effort. The lord and master of the poor Warren district of the city, Alden was yet another obstacle in Cole's quest to obtain the Ray Sphere.
