      FillerSpaceFillerSp MY LIFE STORY



      • Biography / /
        • Eden was born to Dominick Eikenboom and an as yet unnamed, unwed mother. When Eden was very young, Dominick sold her to his brother, Martin, and Martin's wife, Virginia. Around the time she was seven, the family's home was broken into by a known criminal, later identified as Jeremy Horn, who was brought in on multiple accounts of assault and aggravated theft. The incident left Eden traumatized and without a father. She caged her mind and sought solitary confinement, accompanied only by the toys and games she surrounded herself with to distract her mind.

          After being admitted to an asylum in 1988, her condition stabilized into a puddle of content abstraction and fits of confused panic. Early attempts to treat or sedate her using specialists in hypnotism, often employed to help with the mentally ill, were met with limited success. Her powers, unrestrained and rampant in her emotionally confused life were negating almost all attempts. It was determined that she must have been one of the children with abilities, though it was really unclear what her abilities were. She remained indefinitely until the localization of mental facilities and hospitals. After a few years at the local hospital she was moved into private care with her nurse, Angie, in the community just inside of Frederick, MD, where she stayed and helped with the local elderly. This went on for long enough before Angie was killed a taxi cab incident involving a drunk driver, only perturbing Eden further into her isolation. Eden spent several years never speaking when she could avoid it, and never once looking another human in the eyes, untrusting and unwilling. Once everything settled down given a few years, however, Eden began returning to her old self, albeit still scarred. Eden was admitted to the orphanage with its re-purposing for use in superhuman management. She could be considered paranoid or cautious, suspicious or vigilant, but in the end, Eden was just a lonely girl looking for meaning in her cluttered excuse for a life.

    『THE BASICS』

    ⇢ Name | Teodora Milosevic

    ⇢ Nickname | Teddi

    ⇢ Age | 6

    ⇢ Birthday | 1 November 1987

    ⇢ Height | She is tiny and stands at around 2'3"

    ⇢ Weight | Teddi is very light in weight from years in a Serbian orphanage and weighs barely 19 pounds, though she gaining weight and health at a good rate now that she is better taken care of.

    ⇢ Hair length & color | Teddi's hair is dark brown, slightly curly, and very short. The orphanage plans on keeping it short because not only does she hate it longer it also lessens the risk of someone accidentaly touching her skin while helping take care of her.

    ⇢ Eye color | Her eyes are a foggy gray brown. She is totally blind so her eyes look clouded over. They are slightly sunken in because she presses on them a lot(A common thing for blind children to do).

    ⇢ Gender | Female

    ⇢ Power(s) | Poison Skin- Teddi's skin is like a poison dart frog's. She produces a poison that burns when people touch her(Skin to skin only, it doesn't damage furniture or none people objects).
    The resemblance to poison dart frogs ends at the fact it is on her skin. Instead of a neurotoxin Teddi produces a form of Sodium Hypchlorite. This chemical is found in common house hold cleaning products like bleach, disinfectants, stain removers, deodorizers, and can even be water treatment systems.

    However in all of these the concentration is pretty small. Teddi has a much high concentration on her skin. Have you ever gotten bleach or cleaning chemicals on your skin and felt a burning sensation? Or seen the people that have gotten the more heavy duty stuff on their skin and have gotten ugly chemical burns? It's like that except much worse. Some household bleach has 5.25% sodium hypochlorite in it(This is used in hospitals and surfaces have to be rinsed afterwards), Teddi's skin has around 65%(25% above what is considered hazardous.)


    For an unknown reason the form of Sodium Hypochlorite Teddi produces isn't toxic to breath in unless you have you face right up next to her. Then you can feel a mild burning and irritated sensation in your lungs(Like you would if you decided to stick a bottle of bleach in her face and take a deep breath). It is unknown how Teddi's body neutralizes the chemical so it isn't super toxic to breath in.

    The poison is produced by her sweat glands.

    ⇢ Power limit| Poison Skin- Teddi has no ability to turn this off and has to have cloth covering her skin at all times to be able to touch anyone. If someone want to hold her or touch her they can only do it where she is covered or risk burning themselves badly. They can also do it if they are wearing gloves.
    The venom comes through her pores like sweat and if she is too warm it can get on her clothes. While it won't damage the clothes it can still burn if someone touches it.


    『MY LIFE STORY』

    ⇢ Biography |

    Teddi was born in Serbia. Her parentage is unknown because she was abandoned at birth in an alley. Someone took her took the local orphanage where her powers were first discovered when a worker was badly burned trying to wash her. After that she was ignored even more than normal because the workers were frightened by her.

    Teddi never developed properly because of the extreme neglect she faced which is why she is so small and acts differently than most kids her age. She is working through much lower stages of development because she never hit her milestones as a baby/toddler.

    When Teddi was 5(almost 6) an American family adopted her and the orphanage was happy to get rid of her. The family was overjoyed to bring Teddi home, but that joy soon turned to horror when they discovered they couldn't touch their new little girl. Not knowing what else to do the family abandoned her at a firehouse and CPS took her to the Home for the Friendless hoping they would know what to do with her.

    Teddi has only been here for 5 months and is still adjusting to being well fed and cared for, though it is different than having a family. She is currently not doing 'school' and instead goes through various therapy sessions throughout the weeks like feeding therapy, occupational therapy, etc in hoped of making her more independent.

    MORE TO COME

    ⇢ Extra |

    She understands both English and Serbian, though both rather minimally

    She is blind, though can see some light. She also is diagnosed with Institutionalized Autism(because of severe neglect and lack of stimulation as a baby she now displays some autistic behaviors)

    Teddi has some self-harming tendencies when she gets upset. She'll hit her head or bit her fingers...part of her autistic behaviors.)


    『PREFERENCES 』

    ⇢ Loves |
    → ✓ ✓ - Food(She doesn't connect chewing with eating and only eats blends/baby foods)
    → ✓ ✓- Squidgy, her favorite toy is a yellow bath toy shaped like a seal.(She likes toys she can chew on.)
    → ✓ ✓- Her blanket(It is a weighted blanket and helps her sleep better. It was donated to the orphanage by some Autism charity)
    → ✓ ✓- Rattles/musical toys
    → ✓ ✓- Baths


    ⇢ Fears |
    → ▣ - Being alone(She doesn't really interact with people that much, but hates being left alone)
    → ▣- Being tied up/restrained(In the Serbian orphanage it was common for children to be restrained and tied to the bed to keep them under control)
    → ▣- Yelling

    ⇢ Dislikes |
    → ✗ - The cold
    → ✗- Her sneakers(She doesn't like them because they make it so she can't feel what's under her feet and she doesn't like the constricted feeling they give her.)

  4. Name: Wyatt Haywood Whitlock

    Age: 16

    Birthday: 5/15/1977

    Height: 5’4”

    Gender: Male

    Appearance:
    You were staring at him, though he seemed uncomfortable that you were doing so. Thin and scraggly he had a sickly paleness to his skin and he said nothing while he squirmed at your focus. His hair was a tawny brown like the fur of a light skin mouse, while his face was narrow and gaunt. His hair was short and thinning in places at his age it shouldn’t. He was known to wear button down shirts and loose fitting cargos or slacks. His eyes were a steel gray and blue, mixing in hues together and he wore two earrings on his left ear. His voice was calm not flat or monotone, quiet though .

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]

    Power: 6 - I even took a screenshot

    Ghost Walking and Rift Manipulation; Wyatt’s abilities are not separate abilities, but a kind of construct of both powers feeding into each other. Wyatt has the ability to astral project out of his body, but he is not necessarily an astral projector. Instead he is a manipulator of memories.While astral projecting he has the ability to open up rifts in this space. Where he can enter the strongest memories tied to a spot.

    He can only astral project when he is asleep, though because of this Wyatt himself is always tired in the middle of the day. He can also only enter memories and watch them like an outside observer. He has no abilities or control over time itself.

    He gets exhausted when astral projecting and he has been only allowed to limit himself to 10 minute sessions outside of his body. The further and longer Wyatt is from his body, the closer to death his body becomes. Which takes a toll on him.

    Personality:
    His appearance betrays him, most stay away from him because of his creepy looks, and some adults have said probably unadoptable looks. With bags under his eyes and a listless expression, most who don’t talk to Wyatt. Miss out on someone who is intellectual and observant. He’s actually a sweetheart, with a kind heart. He cares deeply for people and is highly empathetic to others opinions and feelings. He seems older than his age sometimes, often giving those younger than him advice. It’s why many of the younger kids enjoy his company because he doesn’t talk down to them.

    The only thing that holds back Wyatt is his powers. Because there’s something about the other side, that calls to him. Some fear or maybe he fears that one day he’ll just disappear the closer and closer he escapes to that world. Astral projecting takes a lot out of his body, but Wyatt tends to not show that.

    He has made a promise to himself that he’d never let anyone see him suffer. Because Wyatt has a want and a need to help the people he cares for. Loyal and gentle, there’s not a mean spirit in Wyatt whatsoever. The few mysteries the adults cannot figure out is how Wyatt can be so intellectual and yet fail at basic communication.

    He’s prone to shutdowns sometimes, when he is overwhelmed and overstimulated. He has selective mutism and lacks the ability to give others direct eye contact. When he does try to, he sorta twitches. Other than though Wyatt is generally kind. And open minded.

    For the few flaws he has, no one is perfect. Is that he has a hard time with accepting change, one time they changed Wyatt out of room to another one and he had a bad week. He can be temperamental, especially with authoritarian adults. And he adheres to strict routine and schedule.

    He might be described as the silent storm. Often appearing on the surface as calm, intelligent, and gentle. Though the adults report a different side that is temperamental, prone to throwing fits and throwing objects. All though they may be exaggerating.

    History:

    I wish I hadn’t seen it. I wish I had stayed away. I wish I didn’t know. I wish I hadn’t said anything.

    Born May 5th, 1977 son of Victoria Haley Whitlock, his father Jordan Knight, the first few years of his life were in a room. With no windows. Or the windows were completely blacked out with paint. The only time he saw the sky was probably in his dreams. Not knowing those were his powers developing. He use to tell his mother about his dreams about the blue sky and fluffy clouds. That always got her to cry. He never understood why she was so sad.

    There was a man who would visited them from time to time. This was his father, though he always remembers him as being tall and very big. Bigger than his mother and him. He always took Wyatt out for ice cream or to play at the park, but his mother was never allowed out. He never had any siblings, and it’s hard to remember all the stuff back then as a kid.

    He was eight when he learned he can enter the memories of others. It his greatest regret. When he entered Victoria’s memories it told the story of a woman who was taken when she was on her way of home. A young girl, at sixteen. Years later, seven years later. With her first child. When she didn’t want it. He remembers the overwhelming sadness involved in that memory.

    Being honest and being open was a kids job. So being the naive kid he was he confronted his mother of his dream. It was the saddest he ever saw her. He didn’t know how to quite how to comfort her. He tried, except that it honestly didn’t know how to.

    The signs were always there, just buried in an extreme situation. He doesn’t remember his mother’s face. If he tried to recall it, he’d never be able to tell you what she looked like. He never looked her in the eye so he doesn’t remember at all what the color were. Jordan was so huge like a bear, he could barely remember what he looked like too.

    The sequence of events began with a phone call. The day Victoria managed to steal a phone and call the police. She was butchered, but Wyatt doesn’t remember that. It’s why he has been in the situation he has been in. While Jordan was in jail and his grandparents on Victoria’s side not wanting to taking him in due to fear that he’d be exactly like Jordan.
    I mean just look at this weird kid who doesn’t show normal emotional responses. Just look at this weird kid who won’t look at anyone in the eye. It’s clear he’s a psychopath too. He looks just like Victoria it will cause the family heartbreak.

    So, he was sent off to the Foster care system. Where he did dance to dance to dance to different homes. Because of problems. What they saw was a child’s failure to behave. A child’s failure to behave socially normal as others. Therapist and the people with Wyatt worked hard, simply saying that it would take time for him to become social acclimated.

    Except that change doesn’t seem to be happening. Nor does it seem to getting any better either. He’s just some odd kid. With odd ticks and stims.

    Likes: [love is a strong word]
    -Bubbles, he likes to take the bubble mix and blow bubbles. It either reminds him of a more innocent time, except that there never was a more innocent time where he sat and blew bubbles.

    -Cracking his knuckles, one of his stims, he likes the way cracking his knuckles makes his knuckles feel afterward.

    Fears:
    -Disappearing; astral projecting is nowhere near as fun people make it out to be. It makes him closer to an invisible world other people cannot see. He doesn’t want to disappear. Except that the condition of his power, does get his body closer and closer to death every time he uses it

    -Some Adults; but not like in the way of a 5 year old. Something about people looming over him and making themselves bigger and scarier than him, always makes him scared and afraid. But it also gets his temperamental with some of them.

    Dislikes:
    -Snow; he’s not a very big fan of the cold and often likes to snuggle into a really thick, warm, blanket when it’s snowing. It’s very hard to get him out of bed on those days because he refuses to go out in the snow or deal with the cold.

    -Cold in general, see above

  5. CHARACTER ACCEPTED.

    do note however that your CS is pockmarked with spelling/grammar errors, nothing truly harmful, but they're there.

    I've highlighted the things I noticed, and understand that we can work with it, everyone makes mistakes, and more importantly, everyone learns. :)

    (ALSO. I'll give you a million billion dollars if you can explain the science behind her poison, is it glandular? what sort of chemical compound is it? :> )
     
  6. CHARACTER ACCEPTED.

    your theme songs are weird af. but im not here to judge. :V

    watch for errors.

    I'd be interested to know the science behind his abilities, if that's something you'd go into. but don't feel like its necessary.

  7. Let's Chat.

    When i said "I'd like to avoid animu" i really meant, "no anime pictures"...

    but i understand.

    additionally, your character has no history, no preferences, nothing past her power limits. pls finish.

    Also, do understand, we are not in japan. Baltimore has about a 0.1% japanese demographic. JUST in the metropolitan area. I just want you to keep that in mind when finishing up.

    additionally, one die roll determines your power count, results of 1, 3, or 6, grant two powers, results of 2, 4, or 5 grant one.
     
  8. Oh sorry, I didn't see the "I'd like to avoid animu". My bad. Also, to be fair, I submitted that post waaaay before you actually wrote "no anime", so you can't criticise me for using it.

    Please note that my computer actually ran out of battery halfway through finishing it (I have to post it before I can roll the dice, so I stopped halfway through and uploaded at the abilities point in order to roll that, since the number of abilities would affect the backstory parts). I've just edited in what I got to last night before the computer turned off. There's no reason the character can't be from that 0.1%, or a foreigner... local demographics really have very little impact on the nationality of a character provided their immigration can be explained, since moving to a different country is hardly illegal (unless you're in North Korea, anyway).

  9. Sciency stuff...OK I got this. Um the resemblance to poison dart frogs ends at the fact it is on her skin. Instead of a neurotoxin Teddi produces a form of Sodium Hypchlorite. This chemical is found in common house hold cleaning products like bleach, disinfectants, stain removers, deodorizers, and can even be water treatment systems.

It is unknown how Teddi's body neutralizes the chemical so it isn't super toxic to breath in.
    (Sorry I know this last part if less sciencey, but I don't want Teddi to have to be fully isolated I hope it's OK.)


    I hope I explained this OK I'm not great at science and such...do I get the million billion bucks? :-P Do you want me to add this to Teddi's form?
     
  10. My theme songs are honestly not that weird. I love music in general and I love the general vibe something gives. Omen gives a sense of dread and darkness, like the rising storm. And the lyrics are "I have seen the future, I cannot afford to tell you the truth, someone just bought it" It pertains a lot to his powers and his slow descend into knowing people's memories.

    The second theme song the lyrics are simply "Reaching out for something I can hold" it's the longing for a place in this world. The whole entire musical sample is like floating or falling and trying to reach for someone's hand or some place to hold onto.

    And the third theme song the lyrics are "It's just run and go" well there's more than that, but it's about running and escaping ones situation being in a hopeless place and trying to run and get away from it all

    All my theme songs are strategically chosen.
     
  11. Lol, I ended up imagining Teddi in some kind of isolation costume, like the the gear you wear to go into the reactor chamber of a powerplant.
     
  12. I want a reasonable, and believable explanation.

    No, 500 years old is not okay.

    Understand that I've got nothing against you. but also understand that I'm trying to create a roleplay that is, despite the presence of superpowers, still grounded very much in reality, okay?
     

  13. unfortunately. Sodium Chloride is table salt.

    BUT YOU TRIED!

    and thats what matters.

    lets just say that teddi's skin contains glands (similar to the ones that produce sweat) that create the compound Hydrogen Chloride, which is mixed with water and released from the skins pores. highly corrosive and dangerous. :)
     
  14. I just didnt expect vocal trance music, is all. :V
     
  15. I wrote that wrong...I'm an idiot. It's Sodium Hypochlorite...not salt... :-P Sorry...

    The rest is fine yeah sweat glands is how she produces it.
     
  16. thats what i read. i just wanted it all together in a neat package lol.
     
  17. OK I edited it into her form is it OK now?
     
  18. lol it was ok before, good stuff tho

    10/10
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  19. Fair enough, lol. I did have a reasonable explanation planned, and I was about halfway through writing it down when I went "Ooh, if I do this (what's currently there), I might be able to use it as an excuse to RP as a really old fashioned person!"
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  20. This is an extreme W.I.P. that I will have done by tonight. My computer has issues, so I don't want to lose any current progress. xD
