Tesla is a tall, lean man with slanted grey eyes and beige, somewhat pimply skin.
He wears a dark green sleeveless bodysuit with a white belt and black boots. Covering his face is a skull-shaped mask.
Tesla is a cruel villain and was shown to be somewhat strategic, demonstrated by how he targeted and took Denki Kaminari hostage due to his own immunity to Electrification, and instantly figuring out and stopping Kyoka Jiro's plan to defeat him.
He admits that he feels a sort of kinship with fellow electric Quirk users and would prefer not to harm them if it can be helped.
During the League of Villains invasion of the U.S.J., Tesla used his Quirk to interfere with communication signal in the facility to prevent the alarms from going off and preventing the students and faculty from calling for help.
Tesla was one of several villains that ambushed Kyoka Jiro, Momo Yaoyorozu, and Denki Kaminari is the Mountain Zone. He stayed hidden until he saw an opportunity and took Denki hostage. He threatens to kill him if Momo and Kyoka don't surrender. Kyoka attempts to distract Tesla by talking while she attempts to plug one of her earphone jacks into the aiming gear on her boots and attack, but the villain notices and threatens to kill Denki if they do not comply with his demands immediately.
Everything seems lost for the three students, but at that moment the U.A. teachers arrive at the U.S.J., and Snipe uses his Homing Quirk to shoot Tesla, wounding him in the shoulders and causing him to let go of Denki. Tesla is arrested along with most of the villains who assaulted on U.S.J.
