Reep’s past is shrouded in mystery and confusion, but the undisputable truth is that he joined the Legion to better the image of all Durlans, using his people’s shapeshifting ability to become a spy and detective. His covert activities landed him in prison when he almost started a war. He was released thanks to his actions to stop a Daxamite controlled by Darkseid. His powers were suppressed during his incarceration, but they returned eventually, but just in time for the Legion to disband. He would later be the force behind the recreation of the team to reassume his role as the Legion’s light-hearted super-spy. He serves as the permanent head of the Espionage Squad, due to his powers and his high detective skills.

Reep is altruistic and loyal, but he tends to adapt his outward behavior to his immediate environment, blending what others expect of him and what they project of themselves on him. He is, however, the proud owner of a grand sense of fun.

Reep is a shapechanger, like everyone from his planet, and his antennae can read a target’s molecular structure for later reproduction. While he can copy basic functions, appearance and physiology as well as changing his own size and chemical composition to a certain extent, he can’t reproduce an individual’s special powers, or the unique and complex abilities from other creatures. Chameleon is also the son of R.J. Brande, an intergalactic entrepreneur, who is locked in human form and hid their relationship for years.

Converted characters, most of the times, unavoidably exceeds the 45-point limitation that the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game core book recommends. With the revision, according to to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book, Chameleon got immensely more expensive, bringing to light the powerhouse he is. Streamlined, once again, according to ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition.
