Goldman & Henchmen.

Bronzeman called in sick today.

I'm guessing luck powers, maybe mind reading.

Kojima called; he wants some help naming characters in his next game!

@Bisected I don't think I'll ever get over Hot Coldman

I'm specifically guessing luck, and in particular *passive* luck based on Grant Elmer and “Sylvia”'s comments taken together.

Also, looks like the hairstyle really is mandatory.

Its unlikely to be luck.
Based on his comment about not competing unless being certain to win. I suspect something more exotic.

I'd guess his power is probability assessment. It likely takes all that he knows and feels, then gives him a solid number, like "Grant is 99% likely to be bluffing", "It's 80% likely that his hand is a pair" and so on.

Well these people are clearly all prominent in the organisation, but where is the True Mastermind? They won't be safe until they locate The Hair Stylist!

Probability's fundamentally subjective, so this guy's powers could turn out to be really interesting.

For example, take a coin flip. If all you know is that it's a heads/tails coin, then that's like 50/50 -- which assumes that it's a "fair" coin.

But say that we know it's a US quarter. Those aren't perfectly symmetrical, so they're not exactly 50/50.. so could his powers know about that?

But not all US quarters are the same. Do his powers know about the specific coin and its odds?

But then, if his powers know exactly the physical conditions of the environment, the flip, etc., then they can basically predict exactly how it'd land. Then it's no longer "odds" so much as full-blown seeing-the-future.

Or, what if his powers are actually that stuff tends to work out in his favor? Then, who decides what's favorable to him?

For example, say that if a coin lands on Heads, he'll get Box #1, or Tails, he'll get Box #2. He thinks Box #1 has a ton of money, but the money's actually in Box #2. Then does the coin land on Heads or Tails?
