The Mind of Altos:
Altos is, quite simply, Broken. His rather sudden immersion into his psionic abilities and the clarity that came with them, has given him a glimpse of the cosmic dance of the Planescape. Where every one else sees Chaos, Altos sees a complex pattern of interactions and connections. Basically its the ever-changing Tidal flow of the Mutliverse, like the movement of the stars. Its infinitely Ordered, but so complex that most cannot comprehend it, without going all Beautiful Mind on everyone. And that is exactly what Altos did. HE is not a GOd, and so he was not fully equipt to handle what he saw. He constantly talks to his own (oddly crystallized) hand, he can be seen constantly scribbling in a journal noting the most inane facts of minutia (actually an attempt to map the flows and interactions of the multiverse that he is tapping), and with deadly seriousness has made each party member promise that as long as they travel with him they will carry a towel. He gets distracted and does not explain, but will say that it is very important with Laurelee around, he is quite adamant.
His Surge ability is him attempting to synchronize himself and resonate his powers with the ever-changing pull of the Planes to augment his effects. However this is an as yet imperfect science, and there are many factors such as time, location, the power type, the target type, etc that the actual effect seems to fluctuate unpredictably.
His Lesser Breach is him thinning the walls of the multiverse and causing random (well not random, but varied and uncontrolable) energies into the area. To use Ryan’s metaphor, it is like a plumber tossing a bunch of water on a circuit. The lines gets crossed, things short, and unpredictable effects can happen {ie the Wild Magic Table).
The Greater Breach is what happens when that thinning breaks through. He punches a hole into Limbo, a writhing cauldron of energy that exists between and around all other Planes (or ant least the Inner, transitive, and material Planes).
