break the bonds of mediocrity and embrace the destiny fate has bestowed upon you.



Julian Timothée Armine

A metahuman of Asian and French descent, born with the power to create, manipulate, and travel through dimensions. Professor Armine has recently come to terms with what he described as an “epiphany” and three months ago, dropped off Millennium City’s radar.

His specialty, and what he taught at Meta City College, was the theory and practice of power development. His wish-his epiphany, stems from his passion in seeing others develop; seeing them evolve to their fullest potential… And if necessary, force it out of them.

He’s always had a harsh sense of justice, but Julian is predictable in his impartiality. Once given a set of rules, he will not break them. His mind, brilliant in his given field, seems to be entirely focused on his perceived “mission from God.”

Out of a plethora of Meta’s in Millennium City, a select few are chosen to participate in his first game. No one need get hurt…

As long as they follow the rules.



Year: 2107
Era: Superhero
Arc: Fractured Dimensions

Premise: A fanatic savant lays a trap for a group of Metahumans and sends them to a different dimension, one of his own creation. In consequence for “not following their destiny”, characters will be put to the test in a game of life or death, as he believes that only under such circumstances are powers able to grow, evolve… and develop.

Given a set of rules and his word that if followed, no one would come to harm, characters must play the game if they want to survive. But his mind is skewed and even one mistake can be fatal. Rules can be interpreted in many different ways and those unfortunate enough to be caught in his dimension must learn to rely on each other, themselves, and the powers they wield.

Character Prerequisites:

🔸 Must have some form of notoriety within Millennium City, even if their “five minutes of fame” is long gone.

🔸 Mustn't be over the age of fifty or younger than eighteen.

🔸 Must have three secrets. One must be negative. The others may be whatever they wish. [To be sent via DM.]

Player Prerequisites:

🔸 Be willing to work collaboratively IC and OOCly! This is a must as characters may be paired.

🔸 Willing to collab with fellow players! Collabs will aid in the flow and cohesiveness of certain scenes.

🔸 Provide character secrets relevant to both their characters and the plot.

Currently this is a private rp — if you’re interested, feel free to message me on Discord with a character concept, but know your acceptance is not guaranteed. Sorry! In the future we are hoping to bring Iwaku new Never Normal Arcs, but for right now this is just something small for me to flex my GM fingers and get used to forum roleplay once again.

Can't think of much. Really depends on who I'm writing with, to be fair.

Aliases: Volt
Age: 22
Sex: Female
Date of Birth: October 10th, 2085​

Written Appearance

5'6"||125 lbs

Voltaeiche is just about average height, standing at 5'6". Her hair is long, hanging down to her shoulders; dark and curly on good days, and incredibly frazzled on bad ones (and REALLY good days), with a single electric blue streak that's usually covered by the others. Her blue eyes don't stand out too much; they aren't electric blue (most of the time), and are often shadowed under her bangs. Still, with symmetrical features, a rosy complexion and a slim build, Voltaeiche makes for a rather classical beauty in the changing world.

She doesn't expect to be recognized in public often, but when the paranoia or paparrazzi close in too much, Voltaeiche always has a simple baseball cap and black overcoat in her bag to hide herself with relative ease. Even without them, Voltaeiche still dresses modestly, her everyday clothing consisting mostly of simple knee-length dresses, jeans and plain t-shirts.

Most notably, she always seems to have some bird motif attached to her; either in the form of a necklace or small earrings, or a small swallow design that's stitched into most of her favored clothing.



Personality

Voltaeiche, first and foremost, is a very, very guarded person. She's been scarred before, and as a result, has walls and walls between her and the people around her. She's always on eggshells, always nervous, always looking behind herself and in front of herself and around herself as she tries to figure out what to do. Social anxiety is her best friend, and she's lacked any other for a long time. Disaster gay was her own pity-proud brand. She wants to be able to be close with others, but finds it too hard to truly open up and let the two-way street of trust between her and someone else.

Through her guarded nature however, Voltaeiche still comes off as friendly, if awkward. She doesn't ask probing questions because she doesn't want them asked back to her, and can manage amenable small talk between bouts of silence.

Voltaeiche's can't always be high stressed, and has found that when she follows what others tell her to do, she can allow herself some peace, and stops worrying about how she's acting. She's passive and a master in that respect, able to let herself go if the situation calls for it, and focus on a single task.



Backstory

Voltaeiche's (the "iche" is silent) life to this point has been full of it's own tribulations. She grew up in Paris, France, and from a young age was exposed to the wondrous art, culture and history inherent to the city. Her earliest memory was sitting with her family by the Seine, having a picnic on a nice summer day.

Her powers were apparent from birth, and with it came the added challenge of not only trying to raise a child, but one who's tantrums could easily cause her to harm herself and those around her. Still, her parents persevered, and they went to great strides to teach her as soon as she were able how to control herself and her powers, how to keep herself calm and clear-headed despite how she may feel. Although it was much to ask a young child to be so mature, Voltaeiche somehow pulled through, and grew up with something close to a normal childhood.

Having to move when she turned nine due to her growing powers, Voltaeiche's family made for Millenium City, where metahumans were more numerous and Voltaeiche could get more support. Her teenage years proved to be as trying as her childhood, as she struggled to keep a handle on herself between her own identity and trying to grow up, and although she came close to having a few breaks, she mostly managed. Until highschool.

Although Voltaeiche was able to 'grow up', as it were, it didn't mean her classmates were. Finding her too mature, and insulted by how she seemed so 'above it all', the meaner cliques at her school started to target her. The bullying started small, enough for Voltaeiche to ignore; she could pick up a missing handout and ignore whispers behind her back. However, as the bullying escalated, Voltaeiche's mood worsened more and more, her handle on her emotions weakening with every taunt or trip she suffered, her other classmates alienating her further to keep from getting tangled with the bullies. The bullies had already stopped picking on Voltaeiche because she was so mature, but now because she was an easy target, someone who never fought back, just a small person to be pushed around. Voltaeiche suffered and suffered, and at her lowest point, when she was about to resign herself to the next two years of her life being the same, she met Ivy.
Ivy was a new kid in her junior year, and the one who pulled Voltaeiche out of her depression. Bruised and beaten after a rather nasty run in with the girls, Voltaeiche was surprised to find someone reach out to her, and more than eager to have someone again. Ivy was normal, not a meta-human, but kind, and to Voltaeiche was the guiding light to keep her from falling into disarray again. Even with the bullies still picking on her, Ivy was by her side, helping her keep aloft despite the circumstances. Voltaeiche was happy again, perhaps the first time in her life, truly happy, that she felt like she belonged, that she had someone by her side, that she was going to be okay. And then it hit her.

She loved Ivy.

Voltaeiche hemmed and hawed for a long while, wondering if she should tell the girl before deciding it wouldn't be fair for her to try twist their friendship to keep herself happy, to try keep anything from her. Screwing up her courage, Voltaeiche told Ivy those special words, nervous happiness buzzing through her as she waited for her reply.

And Ivy laughed. Ivy called forward the bullies, told Voltaeiche the truth; that she'd never truly been her friend, she was just getting close to her to watch her fall completely. She guffawed with her lackeys and mocked Voltaeiche, and only too late did they smell the ozone, only too late did they properly look at Voltaeiche, only too late that they remembered exactly why you didn't mess with a meta-human.

Voltaeiche ended up in the hospital, along with the other girls. All of them were covered in second degree burns as well as quite a bit of nerve damage. Voltaeiche herself healed faster, but jagged burn scars remained crossed along her back, an eternal reminder of what she'd done. Voltaeiche wasn't blamed for the injuries sustained, the bullies behavior well documented, but she was still asked to leave the school because of the incident.

Voltaeiche didn't go back to school or university again after that, somehow managing to acquire a job as a perfume model, trying to block out her guilt and the past by busying herself with the present.



Powers: Electricity Manipulation
-The ability to absorb, manipulate, and expel electrical charges-​

Strengths
-No upper limit on the amount of electrical current that can be controlled
-As a byproduct, can also manipulate magnetic fields
-Can transform their own body into electricity
-Can sense and manipulate electrical currents at a range about equal to her sight

Limitations
-Transforming her own body takes at least a minute to do
-Voltaeiche stores electrical charge, and has to recharge after she uses it. The amount she can store increases with her powers, currently equal to 200 kWh (720 000 000 Joules). She recharges faster if she doesn't do anything, and recharges even faster if she has access to a wall outlet or some other electrical source. (A lightning bolt has about 280 kWh).
-Using her own energy is not incredibly efficient, and currently wastes about 65% of the energy she uses

-Her effective range is approximately 100 meters (her max range to strike a human sized target accurately), and she while she can strike further, she lacks finesse
-While she can manipulate magnetic fields, she requires a conduit to properly finesse and produce meaningful effects

Electrical Form
-Her electrical form takes massive amounts of energy, and she can maintain it for ten minutes if she does nothing and does not charge (5 kWh per minute).
-Being within five meters of her while she is transformed into her electrical form is dangerous, as she absorbs massive amounts of electricity to maintain the form
-While in this form, she doesn't hurt herself anymore no matter how much energy passes through her, her entire being now an almost perfect conductor

Weaknesses
-Voltaeiche isn't 100% immune to electricity when she isn't transformed, and can severely injure herself if she isn't careful. Attempting to expel her own electricity offensively would cause moderate burns and scars.

(some) Calculations
-Flight: Requires approximately 550 newtons to counter gravity, so 550 watts (joules per second), 33 000 joules to fly for a minute.
-Burns: Second degree burns are 5.0 J/cm^2

JOLENE MOON


Name || Jolene Moon
Aliases || R E D A C T E D
Age || 23
Sex || Female
Date of Birth || November 30th

. .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . ..

Written Appearance || Jolene’s body is petite and lithe, standing only at five feet and five inches. Her pale skin is blemish-free, without even a single freckle. She prefers to wear a natural look when it comes to makeup- less is always more to her. Jolene's hair is black as night and silky to the touch, it falls almost to the middle of her back in soft waves.
Jolene's dressing habits tends fo rest comfortably and confidently in dark color pallets and fitted clothing. She refuses to wear dresses unless she absolutely has to, preferring to wear pants with blouses or long sleeve shirts and sweaters. As a person with a penchant for a minimal aesthetic, she will almost always wear plain colors. She can always be caught in a pair of sleek heels, but she isn't opposed to flat-sole shoes either.

Personality || Externally, Jolene appears very well put together and sharp-witted, but with a quick temper. Internally, Jolene is a maelstrom of wild and unforgiving emotions. She is intensely determined once she sets her mind to do something, and she aggressively detests losing. Jolene is not above using her ability to make things go her way, and she tries to find ways to do so without others noticing. Despite all of her negatives, Jolene has one or two bottled positives such as being rather empathetic, understanding most sides of a situation by thinking of a bigger picture. She doesn’t love easily, but when she does, her loyalty is unwavering.

. .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . ..

Backstory || Jolene’s life is dominated by a vicious cycle, caused primarily by . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . R E D A C T E D. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .R E D A C T E D. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . R E D A C T E D. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . Jolene has maintained a high-end lifestyle with a well-paying job at an upscale advertisement agency as a copy editor, while conducting her private life secretly. No one at her agency knows too much about her other than her surface-level presentation.

. .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . .. . ..

Powers || PROBABILITY MANIPULATION
The user manipulates the probability of an event to happen, making unlikely things occur more often or instantly and preventing liable events from happening. They can cause and prevent both good and bad luck, sudden deaths, natural disasters, and even apocalyptic events.

(Limitations) || This ability can be affected by the state of Jolene's emotions in a way that it can either enhance or prevent her from successfully manipulating probability. She is also limited to manipulating things that are possible: if something is 100% impossible, she cannot adjust it, or if the likeliness of something is 0%, she cannot adjust it. In other words, she cannot manipulate absolutes. Effort is also a factor that comes into play with her ability, for example; it would take a considerable amount of energy for her to cause something large like an apocalyptic event, where as adjusting the probability of something simpler like finding money wouldn't require much energy at all.

MAGNUS MONTGOMERY MAREN
Alias: Monty, Velox
Age: 22
Sex: Male
Date of Birth: March 23rd 2085

Written Appearance: Monty is handsome in a plain-jane kind of way. He has curly dark brown hair, verdant green eyes, and skin that’s neither pale nor tan. He has a splash of freckles across the bridge of his nose, a scar beneath his left eye, and a smile that’s known to break hearts. He stands roughly 5’10” (almost six foot with his boots on) and has a rather lean physique, despite the baffling amount of food he ingests.


Velox’s suit is rather plain — a blue-black spandex designed (supposedly) for speedsters — and the stereotypical superhero mask he wears only settles the blandness. Many suspect Velox’s suit was designed to be inconspicuous on purpose — the truth is, he’s just a dude with a budget.

Personality: Monty is a compassionate person, one who loves to take care of people and make sure things go right. He radiates charm and charisma and holds an innate ability to be so annoyingly in-your-face that you grow fond of the unceasing questions, rambling, and monologue. Despite the fact that Monty seems rather childish — with the inability to sit still, be quiet, or take things seriously — he is surprisingly mature and capable of seeing past facades with relative ease.

Backstory: Magnus Montgomery Maren is the eldest of four and the breadwinner of the Maren household. Without him, his family would implode within itself; his mother was diagnosed with cancer a year ago, went through chemo and was told she was cancer free nine months later. Either they lied or it came back with a vengeance — Monty is now the only source of income for his mother and three sisters, (Caoimhe is sixteen, Meera is thirteen, and Celwyn is nine.) as his father passed away when he was fourteen while saving Millennium City against a domestic terrorist attack.

Nine years have passed since then and so much has changed — Monty now works six different jobs and one lucrative business deal that he hasn’t been able to work his way out of. When he’s not working, picking up meds for his mom, buying groceries for his family, cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry — Monty likes to ”walk”around Millennium City to clear his head. If only he had kicked the habit sooner...

Powers: Monty is a speedsterand as such, has the physiology needed to survive such a power. His speed thus far has not been tested, but as he finishes all six of his jobs by noon every day — he’s a little more than fairly fast.

— Reflexes are enhanced to cope.
— Awareness/Perception is enhanced in order to compensate for his superspeed.
— Stamina is enhanced beyond the normal limits.

— Seems more capable in combat than he really is due to his speed (but he does know a little martial arts from his dad).

— Monty needs to eat and he needs to eat A LOT. He considers food to be the literal fuel of his body ; without it he becomes prone to narcoleptic fits of micro-naps, where every couple minutes he passes out to recharge.
— He is unable to rest, fully, for any extended period of time. A full night’s rest for him is two to three hours, at max. When not in motion he quite literally vibrates in anticipation and the feeling is more than a little uncomfortable for him.
— Boyo goes through about 50 pairs of shoes a year.

Glow: Verdant Green
