One look into the eyes of Influence can put you into a trance of evil suggestion.
This evil ex-doctor lost his license to practice medicine after it was discovered he was using mind control to make his patients commit crimes on his behalf. Big Boy had him paroled and put him to work as his brain trust. People always said Big Boy would be really dangerous if he ever got any "influence". They were right.
Influence knows just how to get his patsies to agree with him, either hypnotizing the poor suckers or digging up black secrets from their past. He’s not above resorting to violence, but he’d rather use his peepers to scramble their brains.
