Stephen King[[note]][[NamesTheSame Not]] ''[[Creator/StephenKing that]]'' one.[[/note]] is an American {{Professional Wrestl|ing}}er from Ames, IA best known for his time in Wrestling/{{CHIKARA}} in 2014 as Deucalion.

He has continued wrestling ever since.

He is a former [[https://www.cagematch.net//?id=5&nr=4031 FLW (North Dakota) Heavyweight Champion]] as "Chainsaw King" and a former [[https://www.cagematch.net//?id=5&nr=1225 3XW (Iowa) Heavyweight Champion]].


!! "Tropes Change Everything":
* AssholeVictim: Let's just say that when you inflict career ending injuries on as many people as Deucalion did, no one's going to sympathize with you even if you get hit in the head with a giant hammer.
* BadBoss: See YouHaveFailedMe.
* BaldOfEvil: Under the mask.
* BeardOfEvil: Under the mask.
* BerserkButton: Being called a coward.
* BilingualBonus: Quite a few. Among the writings on his outfit, he had the kanji for "War" (Sensou) on his left arm and his wristband had the Latin words "Vitam" (Life).
* BlackEyesOfEvil: And it was ''creepy.''
* BigBad: Of Season 14 and leader of The Flood.
* BreakingSpeech: Gave one to CHIKARA as a whole at ''Moonraker'', asking if the fans were happy that CHIKARA was back at the expense of its wrestlers, and that people like The Estonian Thunderfrog and Archibald Peck were dead and never coming back.
* CoolMask: The little fan in the mouthpiece actually spun!
* DarkIsEvil: Clad head to toe in black.
* TheDreaded: Is very quickly becoming this. Almost every time he appeared during season 14, someone was crippled.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Showed up out of nowhere with Delirious and Soldier Ant, stood in the ring alone while his forces combat CHIKARA, took a spear from Kobald like it was nothing and broke the goblin's back with a Chokeslam-Backbreaker.
** Also got another one where he heartlessly destroyed his own minion, deviANT, in his second appearance.
* EvilSoundsDeep: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMyUYsJzvG0 And creepy]]. Even deeper and creepier after he was unmasked.
* {{Expy}}: Seemed to have quite a bit of [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Bane]] to him, from a similar military outfit, imposing mask, huge size and breaking a hero's back. He was even similar to the comic version of Bane by organizing the Rogue's Gallery to suit his needs.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Referred to on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILSZP05thEU Archibald Peck's conspiracy board]]: "Who is the Titan of Titor?"
** Even earlier than that (and [[http://chikaraspecial.tumblr.com/post/106737797311/jimmy-jacobs-blog-12-31-2014 indirectly confirmed]] by Jimmy Jacobs), he was referred to as the mysterious head of Condor Security, "Duke", on [[http://noprivatearmy.blogspot.com/2013/06/head-condor-takes-flight-following.html the No Private Army blog]].
* HeroKiller: His appearances generally meant that someone was going off the roster. His list: Kobald, deviANT, The Estonian Thunderfrog, The Latvian Proud Oak, Create-A-Wrestler II, Equinox III, Archibald Peck, and The Shard.
* KilledOffForReal: Destroyed by Icarus wielding The Estonian Thunderfrog's Hammer of War at Tomorrow Never Dies.
* KnightOfCerebus: Easily the darkest and most vicious villain ever seen in CHIKARA, and the tone and atmosphere of the company changed as a result of his actions.
* LargeAndInCharge: The guy was huge, bigger than Tursas. And he was in charge.
* MeaningfulName: In Myth/ClassicalMythology, Deucalion and his wife were the survivors of the Greek version of TheGreatFlood; the name is all too appropriate to the leader of the Flood.
* PaperTiger: He may be UnskilledButStrong, but when he went into a singles match against Icarus, Icarus survived his initial assault and then completely dismantled him. As the commentators noted, Deucalion was not a wrestler and had no actual game plan.
* RedBaron: "The Titan of Titor", "The Engine of Destruction"
* SlasherSmile: After crippling both Equinox III and Create-A-Wrestler II. Also very creepy.
* SuperSoldier: His overall motif.
* UnskilledButStrong: After making a whole season of breaking people in half, the two whole matches he had showed that Deucalion was a incredibly powerful monster who threw his opponents around like ragdolls. But he literally had zero wrestling technique, because he was not actually a wrestler. Icarus, who is [[WeakButSkilled comparatively weak but skilled]], was able to exploit Deucalion's brute strength and finished him off by countering the chokebreaker into the Chikara Special.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Broke deviANT's back after a poor showing in the June shows, and did the same to The Shard after a similarly poor showing in the November shows.
** Also attempted this on Jimmy Jacobs after he failed to win the Grand Championship.
** His penchant for offing his own underlings came back to bite him hard when Jacobs convinced the rest of the Flood to abandon him for this reason.
