Magister Jacelyn Wheels (born 1960) is a villain in Bonds. She first appeared in Thnks fr th Mmrs. She was a human from the planet Earth. She was the wife of Trystan Wheels, the adoptive mother of Helen and Pierce Wheels, and a member of the Rooters.
Magister Wheels was a psychopath who did anything she could to make sure things would play out her way, without regard for the well-being or emotions of others. For example, she orchestrated the deaths of her teammates just so she would gain custody of their children, Helen and Pierce. She also could not stand the thought of her children going on with their lives if she were to die, to the point that she had probes injected into their bodies that would activate upon her death to kill them slowly.
She took pleasure in inflicting psychological damage on others, especially her own family, as seen when she purposely waited to kill Trystan during their interrogation just to elicit a reaction from him and was visibly annoyed when he did not give her that satisfaction.
Magister Wheels was very deceptive and was able to seem like a caring parent to her adopted children. Although Pierce began to have doubts once he became an Amalgam Kid, Helen continued to have faith in her and was convinced that she truly loved them even though she only saw them as weapons. This changed after she learned the truth from Trystan.
Other than that, Magister Wheels was also rather blunt, as seen when she flatly told Pierce that she wasn't his mother and that his real mother was dead after he complained that she was more focused on being his superior rather than his mother.
Prior to Bonds
In 1988, she went on several missions with five other Plumbers, including someone named Trystan. Trystan often stole things on his various missions and sold it on the black market for profit, though he sometimes kept them as souvenirs. He was later caught by Jacelyn, who, instead of reporting him to their commanding Magister, asked him out on a date.
In 1989, Magister Wheels came up with the idea to use children to do their bidding. The Rooters kidnapped many children from across the galaxy and brought them to Servantis, a reluctant ally of the Rooters who worked for them at the Null Void Incarcecon. They ordered him to fuse them with DNA from other species. Dozens of them did not survive the hybridization process, but the majority of them did. Interestingly, many of the survivors were originally human, indicating that there is something in human DNA that makes them genetically compatible with other species. The survivors were forced to work for the Rooters as a group known as the Amalgam Kids. They eventually died on missions, forcing the Rooters to retire the project.
In 1991, Jacelyn was promoted to Magister and married Trystan.
In 1994, the Rooters planned to restart the initiative, but this time, they wanted to take their time raising and training the Amalgam Kids instead of rushing things. Magister Wheels in particular wanted to have a child with Trystan to train personally. Fearing for his potential child's future if they were to be used as a child soldier, he decided not to have one. It was around this time that Magister Wheels and Trystan's teammates, the Valdes family, had a child named Pierce. They were thinking of giving him up for adoption as they did not think they had enough money to raise him, which led Magister Wheels to convince them to give him to her. Ultimately, they decided to keep him. Dead set on having Pierce to herself, she brought the Valdeses and their other teammates, the Waynes, on a mission without Trystan's knowledge and set them up to die. She gained custody of Pierce and the Waynes' daughter, Helen. Horrified by Magister Wheels' actions, Trystan went into hiding, prompting the Rooters to issue a galaxy-wide manhunt. Magister Wheels began to raise and train Helen and Pierce.
Without the knowledge of the other Rooters, she had probes injected into their bodies, with a control chip embedded in her own body. If she were to ever die, the probes would activate and begin killing Helen and Pierce from the inside by overloading their nervous system, as she did not want them to continue living if she wasn't around to manipulate them.
Magister Wheels briefly appeared at the end of Thnks fr th Mmrs with Helen and Pierce after Servantis returned to the Null Void Incarcecon. She informed him that he was being assigned a new job at their headquarters; to oversee the new Amalgam Kids, consisting of Alan, Helen and Pierce.
Almost three months later, in Cool Kids, when Helen was injured and rendered unconscious in an explosion, Magister Coronach, Servantis and Magister Wheels brought the Amalgam Kids back to Rooter Headquarters. Magister Wheels berated Pierce for failing the mission, a conversation that ended in Pierce walking away in anger.
Servantis conducted a medical check-up on Helen and gave her a sedative, after which he was approached by the two aforementioned Magisters. Magister Wheels asked him when Helen would be able to resume training. Servantis explained that, while her physical body would heal within two or three days, she would be emotionally distraught for considerably longer. He advised Magister Wheels to show Helen love and care, to which she reluctantly agreed. She promptly left the scene to find Pierce. She insincerely apologized to him for her harsh tone, but Pierce did not accept the apology and promised to train harder out of spite, which pleased her.
Over a year later, in Verge, a bounty hunter named Disease found Trystan on Revonnah and brought him to an undisclosed location. The Rooters retrieved him and brought him back to Rooter Headquarters. Not wanting to split their attention between Trystan and the Amalgam Kids, they canceled the kids' next mission and ordered Servantis to break the news. Magister Wheels joined the other Rooters in a meeting where she offered to kill Trystan. Dissatisfied with the explanation given to them on why their mission was canceled, the kids decided to snoop around to get answers by disabling the camera in the elevator to access the restricted levels.
Magister Wheels dragged on her interrogation of Trystan by taunting him. Before she got the chance to kill him, Helen arrived and took him away. Magister Wheels then set out to find her, retrieving a Techadon Dissipator from the weapons room along the way. She found Helen and Trystan in Helen's room and threatened to kill Trystan with the Dissipator. Helen stood in between them, refusing to let him die. However, Magister Wheels was unexpectedly killed by Servantis.
Powers and Abilities
Magister Wheels was a well-trained Plumber.
- Helen Wheels: Magister Wheels did not care much about Helen's well-being. After she was injured on her first mission, Magister Wheels was primarily concerned about how it would affect her training. Although she was more lenient towards her compared to Pierce, she still did not hesitate to threaten to kill her if she did not allow her to kill Trystan.
- Pierce Wheels: Magister Wheels constantly berated Pierce for his missteps and pushed him to do better, which led to him doubting her and the Rooters as a whole.
- Trystan Wheels: Magister Wheels mostly saw Trystan as a means to an end, but had a small amount of respect for him as she did not file for a divorce after he ran away, and even kept his surname.
- Magister Wheels' spot in the Rooters was filled by Servantis after her death.
