- An infamous, mute engineer is taking New York City by storm as he has proven to be able to fix almost anything and everything mechanical and electrical and build it at the same time. Dubbed as the new Tony Stark, the genius finds himself falling deeper into his depression as he struggles to create relationships with others due to his inability to talk and his billion dollar family company which others saw as intimidating. One night, as he walks into a dark, eerie neighborhood to help a child that he had frequently seen hobbling around with a cheap prosthetic, he gets attacked. Woken up by the commotion of kids screaming and playing outside the shelter he was in, he sees his attacker, a man in his mid-twenties, studying the child's new robotic arm which the billionaire had installed before being knocked out. While the attacker, a mechanic himself, finds it quite strange that a stranger like the genius would help out someone in the ghetto, he finds himself more and more interested in the mute man until he finds himself in deep trouble. And maybe, this is what the billionaire needed.
Name: Landon Scranton
Personality: Extremely reclusive and shy, Landon has withdrawn from many of his classmates since he was diagnosed to have "selective" muteness, type of anxiety disorder in which his brain shuts down when it comes to speak to anyone in public. He rarely talks to the people in his house, but rumor has it that he was once a bright and happy child. It is a mystery as to why he had changed so drastically when he started to attend middle school (or whatever grade above 2nd).
History: Mysterious as can be, since Landon stays to himself, it is easy for him to hide his identity online where he goes under the name, Elliot. This identity ideally helps less fortunate people to be able to do more things for themselves more easily, but mentions that there is a bigger "picture" behind the whole project. It is assumed that it is simply a project to help him cure his selective muteness by himself rather than going to therapy for it.
In real life, however, he is simply a tech geek who creates tiny yet helpful gadgets and sells them to students who are interested in testing or taking apart the piece to build something else out of it. Despite having enough money to build an empire, Landon believes that he should fund his project with his own hard earned money. His gadgets really come in handy during final exam time where a holographic projection of the clock on people's wrists avoid them having to strain their eyes and necks to look for the simplistic clock in their respective classrooms, along with cheaters desperate for a better grade programming the device to project other useful things for them, but this practice Landon tried to avoid partaking in.
Outside of school, Landon likes to fix people's prosthetic limbs with the advanced tools he has at the hospital near his mansion, along with learning how to fix more complex parts of the body.
Name: Jake Morrison
Personality; An ambitious fellow Jake is. Ever since the start, Jake never intended to give up. It didn't seem to fit his personality. As the only good samaritan in the ghetto, he strives to be a 'hero' for his siblings and other helpless children. His ambition is something that correlates to a lot of other personality traits - strong willed. Not much can break his spirits. The harder you put him down, the harder he's gonna break from your push. His ambition is usually fired up by his younger siblings. His siblings are the one's that he cares for the most. There isn't anything Jake wouldn't do for them. His gentle and funny demeanor always brings a smile to them, but it's something rare. Outside, he puts on an intimidating disposition and scare off predators.
History; From the get go, Jake was alone. His mother was a drug addict who died from a stroke and his father a failed inventor. They lived off of their grandparents money, which wasn't enough to last them all the years. At the age of sixteen, Jake began to work as a mechanic. At first, the man who owned the garage was hesitant on letting such a young boy to work for him. The cars at the time was much more advanced than one would believe them to be. However, Jake managed to pick up the basics and snatched the job. In the beginning he was scared and uncertain about placement and the structure of the car as they grew more and more complex.
Each day he extracted lessons from his mentor, becoming better. At the age twenty, he became proficient in fixing cars and begun to build small knick-knacks. The minuscule projects he had built later grew into prosthetics. The prosthetics aren't mobile, nor were they attached to the human nerves; they were considered useless to the normal person, but to a child missing a limb or two, it was protection from the bullies. He built some for his little sibling who was missing an arm due to an attack. The prosthetic arm was used for aesthetics - to ward off their tormentors.
He enjoyed seeing the expression on his siblings face when they received their prosthetics. It encouraged him to make more prosthetics for other children in the ghetto. On the side, he would continue building minuscule thing to lessen the burden on his shoulders. Small robots to keep the house in order - to keep his siblings busy (built robots made for the amusement of children) and to clean. He would sell the working robots for a fortune. Sadly, his inventions were not popular and did not sell much. His income only managed to keep food on the table and the bills to be paid.
Other; He has five siblings - three boys and two girls. Lionel (16 Y/o), Julia (12 Y/o), Braxton (8 Y/o), Zack (8 Y/o), and Melina (5 Y/o).
