Thread Open To Everyone This is from the overview, just because I don't want it to be lost in the February 14th update. Loosely based of Series 2 of Young Justice. But not completely. ANDREW MICHAELS BIOLOGICAL LABORATORY 2nd November, 2001 (15 years ago) A new experiment has been taking place. Subjects, ordinary people hoping to earn a little money or help the advancement of science, have offered to give their newborn children to the Andrew Michaels Biological Laboratory, to be given a luxurious life in exchange for experiments on their genes while they are young and can not understand. The lab is highly trusted around the world, having many successful experiments, such as clones and advancements in Artificial Intelligence. Each child was collected on 2nd November 2001 and were all under a month old. They were raised normally till the age of two years, when the experiments began. The child would be put under anaesthesia, before having blood tests, injections and more... scarring... procedures. Mostly the removement of DNA from various parts of the body (bones and muscles, for example). Why? Because they believed that DNA had more than what we thought. Scientists believed some children could have superpowers. Not like Superman. People are limited to one power, normally something with a weakness. Not everyone has the gene. Some children are only there to see if the gene can be planted inside them. But what happens if a teenager finds themselves with the desire to leave? Or if a parent wants to reclaim their child? Or if the children want to go to school? Then, we have a problem. Tour of the Lab Dining Hall - The dining hall is full of long white tables with rather uncomfortable chairs. The food is satisfactory, it's not like steak or anything everyday, but it isn't putrid. There are vegetarian and vegan options. Teen Dorms - There are six beds in each room, and the boys and girls are separate. The rooms are quite plain and aren't really used for much more than sleeping, as most hang out in the games room. Scientists' Dorms - These are really just box rooms with an en-suite (bathrooms are situated all over the facility), but they are more private than the teen rooms and have permission to decorate and personalise. Not all scientists have to live at the lab, but leaders and childcare are likely to. Games Room - The games room is the main hang out of the teens. It contains televisions, computers, easels, books... anything a kid would be interested in. Gym&Pool - I say gym, but it's really more like a leisure centre. An outdoor pitch is through the back door, but there is a barbed wire fence that blocks the way out. Inside is an Olympic-sized swimming pool and a collection of sports equipment. The gym is often monitored to see who is stronger or weaker and an optional gym class takes place each Friday. Experimentation Room - Not much explanation needed. Experiments take place in here. There's lots of fancy equipment. This gene is delicate. Head Office - The leader and deputy leader tend to hang out here. It's got a minibar, who wouldn't? It's normally flooded with paperwork too. Reception - This is where people would enter. The receptionist is an NPC (unless anyone wants to play them). Security Office - The security tends to hang out here. It's their job, after all. It's fairly large and there's a lot of cameras. It can get boring, however, so security guards end up hanging out with the kids. TEMPORARY (FOR THE FEB 14th UPDATE) Rules 1. Have fun. This is literally what the point of the thread is. 2. I'm GM, but you guys can completely add in awesome plot twists. I'm not very inventive and this is my first roleplay that I'm GM of, so I'm not going to be very great at it and it would be nice to have people who want to have lots of drama. 3. Saying that, please keep drama to the IC. If you've got a problem with someone, bury it. Or PM me. Just because their character hates yours, doesn't mean that they hate you. 4. If you're playing a teenager, please remember the scientists are superior. 5. You can have one of each character (powered teen, normal teen, scientist). Anyone else you throw in is an NPC and do not require a CS. 6. Please, please be active! If you need to leave, try to tell us. I know real life happens, but it can be frustrating. CS: This is just a base. If you want to add more, add more. I likely will. This is however compulsory to complete. Adding more is optional. TEENAGER Name: - include nicknames.

My Characters Jamie Name: Jamie "Jay" Gender: Male Birthday: 31st October Parent's Names: Jasmine Lockwood and Martin Wilkins Personality: Jamie enjoys loneliness. Being alone is fine with him because when he's alone, he has time to think. He's very thoughtful, but not often very forgiving. If you hurt him, he's likely to ponder on it for a long time and wonder why, but not actually ask why out loud. He isn't quick to react to things, but when he does, people know about it because he is quite open about his feelings, which tend to be more negative than positive. Jamie is quite the pessimist, and it takes a lot of persuasion for him to do something he doesn't want to. Appearance: Jamie is a short person with an average weight for his height. He has dark chestnut brown hair that is cut quite choppily but hides his neck and ears. He has dull grey eyes that seem to be removed of life. If he shaved his hair, you'd see a scar from the back of his neck, that isn't very deep but goes quite far down his spine. Jamie shivers quite a lot, and has a glaring look that can be unnerving at time. Power: Necromancy (limited) - Jamie finds comfort around the dead. He can see ghosts and communicate with them, touch them, and be good friends with them. He can not ban or summon spirits or the undead (zombies, skeletons ect.) An obvious weakness is that he is not good around the living. Biography: Jamie was born to teenage parents who had been having a secret relationship with one another. He was born a few weeks prematurely and Jasmine was horrified at the idea of being a mother. In a fit of post-maternal depression, she sponged him off on Martin and vanished from Jamie's life. Broke and now with a responsibility, Martin tried to put Jamie up for adoption, but he also saw it as a chance to earn some extra money. When he heard about the Andrew Michaels Biological Laboratory, he signed quicker than the speed of light. And with that, Jamie was gone.Jamie is unaware of his heritage and only sees that his parents abandoned him. He does not care for their excuses. He doesn't ever want a relationship with them after they left him in the hands of science. It doesn't make sense to him. Jamie has grew up in a fairly good situation since. He was given to them at the age of two days old and he hasn't left since (though supervised leaves are certainly allowed, Jamie prefers to stay back at the lab). He enjoys to learn and certainly has a brain somewhere in there. He can be quite reluctant to try new things and generally he's quite disobedient, but he isn't a bad kid, he's just pretty confused. Relationships: Estelle - Jamie really hates Estelle because she always tries to persuade him to try new things, something he doesn't like at all. He sees her as quite pressurising and boastful, two qualities he generally doesn't look for in people.- Seraphina - Jamie likes Serafina quite a bit because of their agreement about thoughts, with her being a fan of learning and he questioning quite a few things. If anyone was his friend, it would be Merina. Estelle Name: Estelle Gender: Female Birthday: 14th October Parent's Names: Dr Isaac Wright and his wife Octavia Personality: Estelle likes to be in charge. She's very proud of her family heritage (coming from a long line of doctors) and is also very overly confident. She is bossy and can be seen as annoying and attention seeking. She likes to be in the spotlight and be very social (not always in a good way either.) Estelle is one of those people who you'd probably love at first but slowly begin to hate. Appearance: Estelle is of average build and is fairly pretty. She has long, blonde hair that she has a habit of twirling. Her eyes are blue-green, blue in the centre that swirls out to a light green, and they twinkle with fascination and confidence. Power: None. Biography: Estelle wasn't exactly abandoned or "sold" the way other kids were. Her father, Dr Isaac Wright, is a scientist, although not one from the lab. She was "donated" to be a part of the experiment, which requires her to have no contact with her biological parents (which they tend to sneak around, which is why she knows so much about herself). She is very proud of this. Relationships: Jamie - Estelle tries hard to get on Jamie's good side, and tends to find him quite stubborn, but she knows he doesn't like her at all, which disappoints her greatly. Seraphina - I'll have to see what Serafina thinks about her to make a good decision. Estelle tries to be/is friends with Serafina. She likes to talk about smart things, like chemistry and biology, even though she actually doesn't know very much.
