    [BCOLOR=transparent]Until recently, they all went through the motions of daily life - each experiencing the same worries, the same issues, and the same feelings that one would expect of a mid-teen highschool student. Aside from minor mishaps, none of their days crossed the border of normalcy enough to warrant any suspicion.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]However, their bodies were gradually degrading from within.[/BCOLOR]​

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Like the subtle yet purposeful touches of time, it occurred ever so slowly that they themselves did not notice until it was too late. At first, the symptoms were common and written off easily enough. A headache here, the occasional bout of dizziness there. Sometime after their sixteenth birthday, the symptoms began to worsen, disrupting the teenagers lives and sending them to the closest hospital for monitored care. The sickness drove their bodies to decline at a rapid pace until they were - for all intents and purposes - dead.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Nothing could be further from the truth, though.[/BCOLOR]​

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Unbeknownst to them or anyone else, they were admitted to an institute where they were cared for until they awoke from their strange coma.[/BCOLOR]

      [BCOLOR=transparent]By no means will our characters have been aware of the fact that they have latent abilities. Neither will their parents or anyone else for that matter.

  4. [​IMG]

    Age: 17
    Birthday: 17 February 1999
    Gender: Female
    Sexual orientation: Heterosexual

    Height: 5'3" or 63"
    Weight: 120 lbs

    Special characteristics: No matter where Maribeth goes, or what clothes she has on, Maribeth always has a necklace that has a single opal stone dangling on it. It was her mothers and was left behind after she had disappeared.

    Appearance: Although Maribeth is on the shorter scale she is not extremely thin. She had been in gymnastics for the majority of her life, giving her muscle definition for the most part. Her hair is a light brown that falls to the small of her back in waves, and her side swept bangs have grown to where they can cover half of her face if not pushed back. Her eyes are a light hazel color, and her skin is naturally tan. On the bridge of her nose and tops of her cheeks are freckles that she highly dislikes. They aren't highly visible, but if someone looking at her face, they can be spotted which makes her mad when pointed out. Not to mention, when mad, her face turns red and her eyes get watery.

    Personality: Somewhat of an introvert, Maribeth's father had been told by the 'doctors' that she was mildly autistic when she was young. She wouldn't speak to anyone for many years, and chose to sign to her dad if she ever needed anything. Maribeth's father had placed her into a Catholic private school, so the young girl grew up to be a very reserved type of person. While she does smile at people now, and show manners and a great deal of respect, she still chooses to sit and listen to others speak instead of speaking herself. She does enjoy puns and sarcasm though, and has found herself sounding incredibly sarcastic at times. It has come to her knowledge that she is not autistic what so ever, but that her mind works differently than others. She's over observant and highly aware of the dangers that others pose. Her thought process is a bit more complicated, seeing as how she overthinks everything.

    Interests and hobbies: Maribeth enjoys her time by a pool or outside hiking, as long as she's alone to enjoy the silence.

    Skills: Gymnastics (flexibility, stability, stamina), able to cook, self-defense.

    Fears: Loud noises, large crowds, and overwhelming amount of colors.

    History: Maribeth was born to a family of several generations of servicemen and women. She was born on an American base in Greece, but moved to a base in Italy when she was nine years of age.

    Her family life was fairly normal. In some ways. When she was a toddler, her parents began to notice she wasn't like other children. Maribeth did not begin to speak until she was five years of age, and she did not begin to acknowledge other children until she was about seven years old. Even before she was five, her parents had gotten worried and taken her to a doctor, which then sent them to a specialist. There, Maribeth was diagnosed as Autistic and her parents had to accommodate to her needs. It wasn't true though. It was that the doctors did not know how her mind worked. To cope with it, the parents tried to place her in something that would be healthy for her and that would help her socialize, so she was place in gymnastics. Unfortunately, the stress of having to deal with an 'autistic' child and having to move constantly from country to country took a hard toll on her mom. One night, after coming home late from work off base, Maribeth's mom had a fatal accident.

    Thinking that Maribeth couldn't handle the loss of her mother, her father lied, and told her that her mother had disappeared rather than she had passed away. Since then, Maribeth wore her mother's necklace and hoped every night that she'd show up again.

    Superpower: Telekinesis. Maribeth has ability to move objects through mind power. At her full potential, she is able to lift anything within a ten foot diameter, but anything further, she has to really concentrate and can only concentrate on one thing. She can lift herself as well as others, but not without difficulty. Lifting others feels like a great weight in her mind which she has to overcome. She can also control telekinetic blasts. This is all at her full potential though.

    Weaknesses: Anything that she isn't used to causes her to have some problems. Maribeth could easily lift books, book shelves, bikes, or herself when at full potential. Trying to lift other people or anything bigger than a motorcycle is an issue. She must have all of her undivided attention on said object that's being lifted, and continue practicing, until it feels like its second nature. If she can not keep focused, and there are too many distractions, Maribeth will not be able to keep a grasp on said object. It is also possible for her to over exert herself. She can overthink and push herself past a certain point where she could cause damage to her brain.

  5. So I did use your character sheet as an example for a Thread of mine. Just felt like letting you guys know. I am interested in this RP, problem is, I'm a little lost on the vagueness of the story here. What kind of genre is this? What kind of setting?

    The other thing is I cannot read the character sheet and now I sound like a child
  6. You should have asked first. That is, after all, the polite thing to do.

    As for this RP, it has elements of sci-fi (as the tag near the title says) and its set in the modern world - though we will be taking some liberties, of course. The focus of the RP will be a handful of teenagers who come to discover that they have latent abilities, and how it affects them as well as those around them. There will of course be other obstacles and and overarching plot which will be discovered IC.

    This will not be a roleplay about a superpowers school or conflict between regular humans and those with abilities.

  7. Name:
    Nikolai Luzchezke
    January 29th 1999
    Sexual orientation:

    Special characteristics:
    Nikolai has a surprising amount of tattoos for a 17 year old, there are some decorating his torso but his left arm holds a full sleeve. These tattoos range from quotes or phrases in Russian, Latin, or Spanish to random art, he also has many tattoos of the ace of spades, the death card.
    He has green eyes that from afar could be mistaken for grey and long black hair.He stands with wide shoulders and a slender but toned body. His skin is not pale, he's moderately tanned but not dark. If his hair is not gelled up it is pulled back behind his head, if not in the long mohawk. Nikolai is often wearing a pair of dark jeans and can be seen in wife beaters and/or hoodies. He likes to wear brown and when he needs it he wears a brown leather vest with fur protruding from the collar and arms. He wears vans, boots, or nothing at all.

    Nikolai is of strong character and doesn't like to be thought of as weak. It's often the case that he'll disobey a command in order to prove himself. While he is not a leader he is not without want to be respected, if people chose to challenge him he would happily prove himself. However the secret behind his confidence is the fear of becoming weak and unknown, he cannot stand the idea of being some nobody.
    Generally he is a kind guy, while coming off a little overbearing. He's a very flirty guy, women are his weakness and he'd like to think he's theirs too. With guys he's typically just a joker, not really pushing too much unless pushed first.

    Interests and hobbies:
    Nikolai enjoys getting tattoos, it's his goal to get as many as possible.
    He's a great cook, creating easy ways to make great meals is a passion of his. He dabbles in playing bass and guitar, though bass is the better of the two.
    Immense dislike for spiders. He doesn't like not being able to see or being in the dark. Heights are a serious fear for Nikolai, to be on a balcony is something that would unnerve him but the idea of flight terrifies him.
    Nikolai was born to a Russian born father and Spanish speaking mother. They lived in a small apartment in a bad side of Detroit. Nikolai grew up fighting, not fighting well but fighting nonetheless. His father was not the kindest man and was even less so when he drank. Nikolai didn't think the beatings were terrible, he saw them as teachings, even if unwanted. But his mother didn't agree. She threatened to leave his father often, but never amounted the courage. Until one incident was taken too far. This was the day Nikolai got his first tattoo, a large fireball on his left shoulder. Nikolai was incredibly proud of it, he'd saved up the money and even found someone bold enough to tattoo a 14 year old. Of course he'd hit puberty by that time and was growing some facial hair but he was clearly still young. Nikolai came home and saw his father in the living room, Nikolai made efforts to keep it from his father. He managed it for a day then the next night he was reaching for the jar of peanut butter from the cabinet and his shirt was pulled so it uncovered the red and orange of the fireball. His father burst into a fit of anger and pushed his son into the pantry door, breaking it. His mother tried to intervene but his father landed a firm backhand across his mothers face.
    Nikolai and his father went at it for some time after this, with his father pushing him and slapping him and Nikolai attempting to strike back. His father eventually pushed Nikolai too hard and caused him to slip and fall. He was knocked unconscious and when he awoke he was in a hopsital bed. His father at his side. Nikolai was told that his mother had left the night before, and that she was never coming back. After some time recuperating, Nikolai was put back with his father. And this time the rules were different. Nikolai had found out that CPS was informed he had slipped and fell, he used this to blackmail his father. His father let him do as he pleased, and each time he went out he got more and more tattoos. The money for these tattoos came from a combination of stealing and working odd jobs around the neighborhood. By the time he turned 17 he was practically a human canvas.
    Lupine Shifting. Nikolai's ability allows him to near instantly evolve his physical and mental state to that of a canine-like animal. He can increase his reflexes, giving him enhanced speed and reactions. He can also increase his hearing and sense of smell to match that of a canine. While in this state his nails grow out into claws, his canines grow and protrude slightly, he also grows more hair on his arms, chest, back, and legs in this state.
    High frequency sounds, bullets, and of course he is easily tricked into a fit while in his canine state.​

  8. So it's more like a psychological horror thing?
  9. Addison "Addie" Parker

    My Character Sheet (open)

    Addison "Addie" Parker

    July 19th, 1999

    Sexual Orientation:


    115 Pounds
    Special Characteristics:
    Addie has a 4-inch scar on her right hip that she doesn’t remember getting
    Addie is a thin-framed girl. She has long, dark brown hair that she usually keeps in a ponytail or a lazy bun. She’s definitely considered pretty, but she’s not a supermodel. She has brown eyes, and usually has dark bags under her them. Her skin is rather pale, because she doesn’t go outside that much.

    Addie has a good heart and is very sympathetic towards people. She’s rather shy and doesn’t voice her opinion, but she is confident when she sets her mind on something. She does her best to be kind to everyone but she tends to hold first impressions against people. If someone wrongs her, she has a habit of keeping negative feelings against that person. Despite this she tries to be optimistic about people, but she often fails.
    Interests and Hobbies:
    Addie grew up playing video games with her brother. She is abnormally good at them and constantly beats all of her friends. She is also very good at fixing computers and can troubleshoot most of the problems that one might have with their device.

    Aside from her skills with a controller, she is a general tech whiz and loves playing with random pieces of technology.

    She is scared of being alone in a crowd. She is also just scared of crowds in general. Basically, she’s mildly scared of people… and the dark. Other than that, she’s pretty solid. She has an extreme fear of both heights and high speeds (speeding cars)

    Addison grew up in a stable home with her parents and brother. She had no mishaps or misfortunes until middle-school, where she was bullied for her “boyish” interests with computers and electronics and videogames. Despite her best efforts, the kids in her school were rude to her and constantly insulted her.
    Because of the bullying, she grew very reclusive and spent most of her time in her room. She tried everything, from changing her hair, to forcing herself to not eat so she could lose weight and look like the other girls. Regardless, the bullying never changed. She spent most of her time with her older brother, playing games and hanging out with him and his friends. This all happened up until she began getting sick and was hospitalized

    Addison can read and emit binary codes and read computer wavelengths of all kinds. For instance, she can take over a car’s wavelength and force it to go where she wants. She could force a speaker to emit deafening frequencies. She sees all of these wavelengths like a heads-up-display and uses her fingers like a controller to help her concentrate on a certain code or wavelength.

    Due to the nature of her abilities, Addison is not very useful in a combat situation. If she is in an area with no useful technology, she is completely vulnerable to attack and to harm. Her abilities are limited to a radius of about 30 yards around. Her influence on an object depends on the work it takes to operate the machine/computer. For instance, she can control multiple handheld devices/laptops for a long period of time, while she might only be able to control a car for a few minutes. The bigger and more complex the object is, the larger the toll on her stamina is. If the object she is controlling is damaged or short circuits, she feels it in the form of a deep, sharp pain in her head, increasing on the damage done to the object.

    [BCOLOR=#000000]"Let's just say, I've never been afraid of the dark.[/BCOLOR]"

    Sierra Isabelle Morgenstern

    Sia, Dolly


    2 September



    Physical Appearance



    Sierra has pale blue eyes that are large, doll-like and glassy. Sometimes said to be her best asset, her eyes are framed by thick black lashes and often appear watery, or make her look like she is crying. Sierra's eyes make her look sad a lot of the time.

    Sierra has long pale blonde hair that falls to her waist in perfect ringlets, also like a doll's. Her hair is soft in texture, and she rarely brushes it because if she does it will turn unbelievably bushy. Sierra often uses her beautiful hair to hide her face and it adds to her tiny height.

    Sierra has a small birthmark on her collarbone, which is shaped like a slightly curved triangle. She also has a thin scar on the back of her right thigh, though she cannot remember how she sustained it.

    Sierra is underweight for her height, and therefore has an extremely thin body. Most of her ribs are visible, as are her collarbones, and she has a thigh gap and spindly wrists. Sierra has a soft face that is quite often described as 'girlish' and 'doll-like'. Her face is all soft edges and wide eyes. The comments of 'doll-like' are also fueled by her choice of clothing: Sierra dresses almost exclusively in dresses, tights and cardigans, most of which are coloured in pastel pink and blue.


    + Observant, - Shy, + Compassionate, - Secretive, + Trustworthy, - Too Self-Reliant
    Sierra is a wallflower at heart, meaning she is very observant and notices small details others fail to notice. As she is very shy, she finds it difficult to speak to new people and therefore keeps these details she notices mainly to herself, unless she finds a close friend. Despite her shyness, Sierra is very compassionate and often wants to make new friends -- she is just simply too shy to do so. While some, including Sierra, view being secretive as a bad thing, Sierra is in no way malicious about this trait; she simply keeps things to herself, whether they be good or bad. The thought of sharing never occurs to her. Due to this trait, Sierra is very trustworthy. All your plans and secrets can be safely confided in Sierra, because she has no interest whatsoever in revealing them to anyone. Finally, Sierra is simply too self-reliant. If she ever needs help, she will not ask for it and mainly relies on herself to provide her with everything she needs. She is very independent, which is a good thing, but even Sierra sometimes needs assistance from others.

    Reading, Sewing, Cooking
    Sierra loves reading, mainly reading fantasy and romance novels such as The Mortal Instruments and Twilight. She also has a huge affinity for John Green books, Coraline and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Sierra is a talented seamstress. Sewing frequently has allowed Sierra to become greatly talented in this field; she often makes her own beautiful clothes. Sierra is also very interested in cooking, particularly baking.

    Observing, Sewing, Cooking
    Sierra's best skill is her habit of observing small details no one else notices. This skill translates itself into her sewing, as sewing is a very fine, specific practice and requires a lot of attention to detail. Sierra is quite good at cooking, specifically baking, which also requires a lot of attention to detail, as bakers need to measure out specific quantities of ingredients.

    Spiders, Ocean, The Unknown
    Sierra's only physical, tangible fear is her fear of spiders, which manifests from the time a rather large spider crawled right up her face when she was three years of age. Sierra is also quite scared of the ocean. While she is perfectly fine in clear, shallow waters at the beach, the thought of the deep, open ocean where you have no idea what could possibly be residing right underneath you petrifies Sierra. This fear can be considered a smaller facet of her larger fear of the unknown. Concepts such as the ocean, the universe and oblivion, where you have no idea what is out there and no idea what the natural forces are capable of keep Sierra up at night.

    Daniel Morgenstern

    Father | 40 | Alive | Stockbroker

    Daniel Morgenstern is a serious man. He and his daughter do not always see eye to eye, but they love each other nonetheless. They rarely speak as Daniel is always somehow busy with his work.
    Delilah Morgenstern

    Mother | 39 | Alive | Stay-at-Home Mother

    Delilah and her eldest daughter have always had a great relationship. It was from her mother whom Sierra learned how to sew and cook. They often spend time together whenever they can. Sierra considers her mother her best friend.
    Gabrielle Morgenstern

    Sister | 13 | Alive | Student

    Gabrielle and Sierra have a close relationship. While they do not look alike very much, they share most of the same mental and emotional traits. They like to read the same books, sew together and work on baking recipes.

    Sierra was raised in a small town where everyone knows everyone and neighbourhood barbecues happen every other weekend. Despite always being around people, Sierra was always terribly shy and would most often beg her parents to allow her to stay at home during social events. Due to almost always being at home in her early years Sierra was able to hone her sewing and cooking skills and had a lot of spare time to read.

    Light Manipulation
    Sierra has the ability to manipulate the light around her. In its most basic form, this ability allows her to take the light from a room and store it in her own body. If she possesses stored light in a dark room, Sierra can unleash it and illuminate the dark space. When she is storing light in her own body Sierra can act as a human torch; her skin glows.

    Sierra's power is very sensitive to solid objects, as they can be used to block or otherwise completely nullify her light ability.

    "But I'm a Capricorn."
    Name: Leo Linwood Lange
    Age: 17
    Birthday: December 31st
    Gender: Male
    Sexual Orientation: Pansexual

    Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 165lbs
    Special Characteristics: Leo likes to decorate his ears, and both lobes are pierced. He has several additional ear piercings that range from a vertical industrial in his left ear, to a helix in his right. He has a scar on the outside of his right hand.
    Appearance: Leo is tall and thin, but has a little bit of muscle definition through his arms, shoulders and abs. His skin is rather pale, perhaps a little ghostly and it's not difficult to see purple veins just below the surface. His face is angular, sporting a strong jaw and high cheek bones. Beneath a pair of full eyebrows sits a set of cold, blue eyes that are slightly softened by dark lashes. Leo likes to wear his black hair messy, or rather, he likes people to think that it's messy. The black layers are thick and are often pushed up and around his head in no real style. Despite his slacker-like appearance, Leo has an effortless smile that is usually hidden behind bitten lips.
    Personality: Much like any extrovert, Leo doesn't shy away from the center of the room. He is charming and talkative, often getting involved with a group of strangers and coming out with a few extra friends. He is curious and observant, always wanting to try new things and explore new ideas, and is usually rather energetic. Despite his tendency to go and never slow down, Leo still manages to relax and collect himself with a few hours of solitude. Aside from that, he would prefer to be among good company. Even though most of his happiness is relationship-based, Leo is independent to a fault and would rather die than admit that he's struggling with something. He tends to bottle up his negative emotions, especially in times of great stress.
    Interests and Hobbies: Drawing is Leo's favorite way to unwind. He's always doodling on scrap paper or in the margins of his school papers. He also likes swimming and being around water.
    Skills: Leo is a fantastic listener and if asked, is almost always ready to give out advice. Physically, Leo is a strong swimmer and has been practicing free diving.
    Fears: Being alone for long periods of time has a tendency to make Leo anxious because he likes to have his mind and time occupied. Leo is also afraid of fire, specifically being burned, after an incident with a campfire when he was younger. He doesn't like flying, either--something about careening through the air in a metal tube doesn't sit right with him.

    History: The youngest of three children, Leo's parents married young and worked hard to provide a comfortable, middle-class life for the family. Because his parents, Isaac and Sarah, were usually working well into the evening, Leo spent a lot of time with his older siblings. Danielle and Evan were Leo's first best friends, and the three were incredibly close for years until college and high school got in the way. After his siblings left to start their lives, Leo found a new circle of friends and began to breeze through school. He had a happy, stable life, which sometimes annoyed others and prompted a few fist fights. Aside from those old bruises, Leo never struggled for anything and generally had a calamity-free life.

    Superpower: Leo can create, shape, and manipulate gravity. Full use of this power includes the ability to bend gravity and make an environment "heavy" or "light", repelling or attracting matter and moving objects in a way that is similar to telekinesis. He has the ability to affect a single target from twelve meters away, and a broader, weaker range of five meters per area.
    Weaknesses: Amateur application may render Leo unable to create gravity, forcing him to manipulate from existing sources. Distance, mass and precision depend on Leo's own strength and knowledge of his power, along with his natural limits. Gravity is the weakest fundamental force, and may lose against other forces.

  12. Hey guys, just updating y'all on what's happening. Today I do get out of work at normal time, and I plan on starting the IC. We might be lucky and Lili will start it beforehand, but we're all busy people.

    Anyways, I was just letting y'all know!

  13. Hello. I pm'd you my character last night and I was wondering if you received the pm?

  14. Hi!! Yes, I did receive the PM and I will be looking at them closely right now (just got on my lunch break). This morning I had posted on here before leaving to work. Give me a few minutes and those who have sent me CS's will receive feedback!
  15. IC is up!

    Those of you with approved characters may begin your introduction (or in this case 'wake up') posts. If there's anything unclear about my post or if you have any questions regarding it, please don't hesitate to ask.

    We also have a Skype group that serves as an OOC. I tend to reply quicker there, so if anyone would like to join, ask either GM.

    @Wingless_Angel Please be patient. Us GMs are human too, and only have 24 hours in a day like the rest of you.

  18. [BCOLOR=transparent][​IMG][/BCOLOR]


    [BCOLOR=transparent]Name: Lucie Valentine[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Nickname: Luce[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Age: 16[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Birthday: November 6th, 1999[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Gender: Female[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Sexual orientation: Heterosexual[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Height: 5’8”[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Weight: 120 lbs[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent]Special characteristics: None.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Appearance: While Lucie might not come across as the most approachable of people at first glance what with her perpetually bored expression and closed off posture, she certainly does present an eye catching picture.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Styled in an asymmetrical bob and dyed a vibrant, flame red; her hair makes a vivid contrast with her pale skin and dark clothing. Her large eyes are accentuated with black eyeliner in an attempt to make the otherwise unremarkable grey of her irises stand out. Silver studs and small hoops follow the curve of her ears, five in her left and three in her right. All this makes her look a fair bit older than she actually is.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]The girl exudes the illusion of effortless grace; her long legs and willowy frame further lending credence to this. However, this illusion of elegance only holds for about as long as she remains still. Having gone through an unexpected growth spurt, she’s suddenly unsure and entirely awkward about her body as the next teenage girl.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Personality: Raised by her aunt after the tragic death of her parents, Lucie has grown up to be cynical and more than a little bit spoiled. For someone so young, she’s got quite a bit of vitriol towards the world. It's honestly a wonder she hasn’t toppled over from the massive chip on her slender shoulders. She isn’t above weaponizing the tragedy of her past to evoke guilt in her pushover of a guardian and get her way in the end - which should be a clear enough picture as to how she goes through life. And when the going gets tough, she uses her past as a shield behind which to hide from the problem.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Lucie is alarmingly unmotivated, even for a teenager. Rather than a case of laziness, she simply shows no concern for her future, content to let life just pass her by. Much to her aunt’s dismay, no amount of coaxing or strictness would snap her out of it.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]However, for all her facade of disinterest and boredom, Lucie is quite aware of her surroundings and her peers. She pays attention to the goings on of those around her, often surprising them when she speaks up. Of course, as she has a tendency for sarcasm - and due to her acerbic tongue - most of these comments aren’t exactly well received. She’s also prideful enough that sometimes, she fails to see past her albeit very pretty nose - and god forbid she ever admits to being wrong. Lucie is extremely opinionated on certain subjects and doesn’t hesitate to let them be known. She’s quick to take offense and slow to forgive, leaving her with a scant few friends.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Lucie’s English carries a French accent to her words, being a native Parisian and all.[/BCOLOR]


    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Lucie is borderline obsessed with fantasy novels - The Forgotten Realms, Harry Potter, and Dragon Age being a few of her favorites. She can talk about it for hours on end if she isn’t stopped.[/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Drawing, though she prefers to hide behind the anonymity of the internet while showing off her work.[/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Obsessive drinker of fine teas. [/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Sylvester, her lovebird. He's magnificent and superior to all other animals, in her opinion. [/BCOLOR]
    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Food in general, fish being particularly offensive. As an extremely picky eater with an abysmal appetite to go with it, Lucie would avoid food if it was at all possible.[/BCOLOR]​

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Schoolwork; Lucie hates school and puts in only as much effort as to ensure she doesn't flunk out of her classes.[/BCOLOR]​

    • Lucie doesn't like flowers since they remind her of funerals and her time spent in a hospital, when she got tons of those as condolences and well wishes.

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Proficient in digital art and decent enough in traditional ink sketches, Lucie earns a fair bit of pocket change through her commissions and has a decent sized follower base.[/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Knows how to swear in French, Tevene, Qunlat, and ancient Elvhen.[/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Knack for perfectly mimicking accents once she hears enough of it.[/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Making people feel uncomfortable by being tactless on purpose, and with her scathing remarks.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Fears: [/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]As a child, Lucie had an incident involving an upturned canoe and nearly drowned as a result. The experience has left her deathly afraid of water in large quantities.[/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Hospitals have always been a source of fear and trepidation for her, bringing to mind at least a dozen horrible scenarios of what could go wrong. Her time admitted to one after the car crash served to make it even worse, if that was possible. [/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]Snakes. Squirmy, scaly, slithery beasts that are the embodiment of horror in Lucie's eyes. This might have to do with the fact that she watched a - highly unrealistic, but still terrifying in her mind - movie marathon about killer snakes. [/BCOLOR]

    • [BCOLOR=transparent]An inexplicable (and rather embarrassing) fear of hers is the paranormal. Lucie has never been strong in the face of horror movies and novels, but anything about the paranormal leaves her torn between hiding under her blankets and keeping a vigilant watch on every little shadow and rustle.[/BCOLOR]
    [BCOLOR=transparent] [/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]History: [/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]Born to Allison and Laurent Valentine, Lucie was a surprise, but not an unwelcome one. The family had their ups and downs but she had a normal and happy childhood. Well, as normal a childhood as one could have with a semi-famous model for a father and a makeup artist in early retirement as a mother. Still, they loved their daughter and doted on her at every point. She was their perfect little angel, after all.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Of course, life rarely gives us perfect happiness.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]The little girl who was taught to be dependent on her parents for every little thing suddenly found herself quite alone and entirely devastated when they died in a car crash some time after her seventh birthday. [/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Lucie's aunt took over guardianship and attempted to care for her traumatized and injured charge the best she could. She walked on eggshells around the girl and couldn't find it in her heart to ever be strict with the poor little thing despite the doctor's recommendations. As a result, Lucie grew up to be tremendously spoiled.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Superpower: Selective intangibility.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Theoretically, Lucie possesses the ability to render herself intangible, allowing her to pass through matter and energy completely unharmed while at the same time being tangible to interact with what she wishes to. At the heart of it, this power stems from spatial manipulation, manipulating the planes of existence on a relatively small level as the ability can only extend to herself and inanimate objects she is in contact with. It [/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]also allows her the capability to disrupt organic matter and electronics by passing through them. An added benefit is that she can camouflage herself to perfectly blend in with her environment.[/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Weaknesses Selective intangibility is exactly what is sounds like, rendering her abilities rather limited as to what she can do. Her intangibility can only extend to relatively small objects, and she needs to be in contact with them for it to work. Becoming tangible while inside a solid object would injure her. Lucie's speed and endurance remains at human levels, limiting her movement. While her passing through them would completely damage or disrupt electronics, the most it can do to an organic is to knock them out for a while. Her camouflage ability takes a lot of concentration and is only perfect for as long as she remains still. Once she starts moving, its difficult to constantly keep adjusting her camouflage and she isn't impossible to spot by the slight distortions.[/BCOLOR]

  19. Okay, a few things to take note of before you post IC.

    • Our characters have been placed in separate rooms. You can't see each other or even be aware of it just yet.
    • There won't be any medical equipment aside from the obviously hi-tech bracelet. Its technology will be unfamiliar and advanced even to you tech lovers out there. It cannot be taken off.
    • The rooms themselves would be larger than your average hospital room, and in excellent condition. Everything will be white. No real windows, but lightboxes of a sort that give off the illusion of sunlight filtering in. Definitely no phones or other way of contact. No way to tell the time.
    • The door leading to the bathroom, and the one leading outside will be automatic. Of course, the one leading outside cannot be opened by our characters. (Did any of you really expect to?)
    • Though their muscles wouldn't have atrophied to a state where they cannot be used, it would still take a bit of time before they get to perform physical activities without feeling tired or strained. (You've just woken up from a coma that lasted more than a few months, remember? It might very well have been half a year for some of you.)
    I think that should cover it.
