Thu Dec 28, 2017 3:57 am by Adrian

Merry Christmas/Festivus/whatever holiday you do or do not celebrate!

Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Adrian

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

*slightly off-key Arrow theme plays*:
Name: Ran Mao Hightower
Alias: The Rose Archer
Age: 15
Appearance: 
Spoiler:
 I do not own the image.
Personality: Before their time on the island, Ran Mao was very shy, and hardly ever spoke unless spoken to. They were curious about the world, but cautious, and was usually quick to pick up on things. After their return, however, everything about Ran Mao, even their silence, seems colder – they’re still cautious, but now their curiosity is born of paranoia. They aren’t scared to speak as much, they just don’t want to. They’re having a slightly harder time readjusting to civilized society, and it causes them to isolate themselves. However, with time, it’s very possible that they could make a recovery. But first, they’re on a mission.
Bio: Ran Mao was born on March 20th to Jonah and Xiulan Hightower of the very successful Hightower, Inc. For the first ten years of their life, Ran Mao lived as the child of wealthy Hightowers in Roseburg, as normally as the heir to such a company could live. During the summer after their 10th birthday, however, this all changed. While taking a trip to visit her extended family in China, Xiulan brought Ran Mao, who was too scared to fly, so they traveled via boat. During their voyage, the boat got caught in a storm and sank, killing everyone except Ran Mao and Xiulan. After a few days floating at sea on a lifeboat, they reached an island – at first, it was their salvation, but as time went on, it contained as many horrors as the open sea. Flash forward five years, and Ran Mao is returned to their father in Mount Superior, changed from their time on the island, carrying secrets, memories, and surprising new skills.
Abilities: Fear inducement, unnoticeability
Weapon: High quality bow with a variety of arrow types
Strengths:

-Ran Mao is naturally quiet and observant.
-Because of their looks, they aren’t believed to be a feared vigilante.
-They have a lot of resources at their disposal from their family’s wealth.
-They learned most of their skills in combat while on the island.
-Their powers can be useful to counteract their weakness to an extent.
Weaknesses:

-They don’t have much physical power, seeing as they are short and thin.
-They’re still a younger teenager, so they don’t have access to same abilities as adults.
-Their powers, though helpful, aren’t terribly strong, nor does Ran Mao have a good grasp on them.
-Ran Mao is still carrying some trauma from their time on the island, and it can be debilitating.
Other: oh look finally a Ran Mao that isn’t cis

Approved to all!

>tfw I finished my form but never posted it lol


"OUR LIVES ARE RULED BY CONSTANTS, AND VARIABLES.":

Name: Katrina "Kate" Slough
Alias (optional): ---
Age: 24
Appearance:
Spoiler:
Personality: To most, Kate Slough is a formidable and strong-headed woman. She is her father's daughter, and attempts to maintain an image of self-sufficiency. Kate is not uncomfortable with being a leader, and though she doesn't aspire to follow exactly in her father's footsteps, she does have a strong desire to change the world - a world that seems to be changing by itself. Despite the obstacles that may impose their will onto her, Kate is a quick learner and fast thinker, with an innate ability to understand situations more effectively than others.

But Kate has her own internal struggles - she is not infallible. An air of self-doubt began plaguing her upon high school graduation and is growing, causing her to wonder if she can ever live up to the expectations of not just everyone around her, but her late mother's as well. Kate's anxieties clearly conflict with the image she presents to society, causing her to close herself off if others attempt to pry or understand her turmoil.


Bio: Katrina Slough (known to most people as Kate) is the daughter of Louis Slough, Mayor of Mt. Superior. Kate is an intelligent and philanthropic citizen and city leader, but otherwise bore no supernatural qualities prior to the Uplifting. She graduated from a private high school outside of the city and began attending classes at UCLA. In 2016, Kate was set to begin classes at the UCLA School of Law, but one week before she was about to leave, her mother was killed in a freak accident. Blind-sided by the sudden loss, Kate decided to take an indefinite leave from school, opting to help her father with city matters.

Back in Mount Superior, Kate began assisting her father's office, carrying out orders and directives, attending meetings, and making her presence known within the city government. Over time, she began to bury the pain of losing her mother beneath a mountain of work and preoccupied time. But every now and then, the memories slip through the cracks, threatening to break out of her facade. Things, of course, made her life even more complicated in 2018. She was one of many humans affected by the Uplifting - a mysterious event that inexplicably granted once-normal people superhuman abilities. However, Kate found that her gifts were more passive than some others, and for the past month she has attempted to conceal her abilities from the public eye. However, just like grief, they can only hide for so long.

Abilities:

  • Parallel Viewing: Kate has the ability to see alternate versions of herself, being played out in different timelines. She can't look forwards or backwards in time, nor can she interact with objects in her visions, but she can communicate with "herself" in this manner.
  • Danger Intuition: Kate can sense when direct threats to her health or existence are impending. She doesn't know how, why, or at precisely what time.
  • Gestalt Mind: Kate can, on occasion, share her mind with her alternate selves, allowing her to be able to use some skills and knowledge she wouldn't otherwise have. However, it's temporary and sometimes it can be difficult for her to maintain "contact" with her alternate self.

Weapon(s)(?): Kate doesn't like guns or weapons of any kind. However, she does keep a small can of Mace in her back pocket. Just in case.
Strengths: Kate is fantastic at getting things done. For the most part, she doesn't stop until her goals are accomplished, and she rarely lets things get in the way of her life. Setbacks and insults bounce off of her like rubber bullets, and her tough stance makes her a formidable opponent - and staunch ally.
Weaknesses: But Kate is more vulnerable than she lets on, or even realizes. Not only does she struggle with the dual serpents of grief and doubt, but her abilities seem to compound her problems more than remedy them. Her constant visions of what "could have been," in her words, act as a reminder to her of the mistakes she made, and the permanence of time. Because of this she often closes up to other people, especially if it seems like they're getting too close to her.
Other: Her FC is Alejandra Alonso

"A MAN CHOOSES. A SLAVE OBEYS.":
Name: Lucy Todorov
Alias (optional): The Emissary
Age: 30
Appearance:
Spoiler:

Personality: Lucy hates bullshit. She likes clear-defined paths, and pushes through any obstacles that get in her way. She's not afraid to do whatever it takes to reach her goals, even if it means throwing people under the bus in order to do so. That being said, she does try to find allies, even if it might mean they're more for her own benefit than a mutual relationship. Her social abilities are somewhat limited to what she deems necessary for her own success, so she may come off as standoffish.

Bio: Nobody is quite sure when Lucy landed in the States. She claims to be from Kiev, and says she was seeking new employment when the Uplifting occurred and granted her strange abilities. When the UN Specialized Task Force was established, she jumped at the chance to put her powers to use and, after a month of training, was sent out onto her first mission. However, she would not be solo, much to her chagrin.

Abilities:

  • Telekinesis: Lucy seems to have indeterminate levels of mind over matter, able to move objects even when she is not in the same room as them, as well as lifting things many orders of magnitude above her own weight.
  • Teleportation: Lucy has the ability to transport herself through space, "from one end to the other" as she describes. The accuracy of this ability tends to weaken the further she tries to travel, so she only goes a certain distance at a time.
  • Dark Matter Constructs: Lucy can create temporarily - and usually unstable - forms from dark matter. Since dark matter is different from regular matter, these constructs oftentimes have unexpected side effects as a result of interacting with the "real world."
  • Illusion Manipulation: Lucy can create illusions - apparitions that are nearly indistinguishable from reality. The more she creates, the harder it is for her to actually keep her focus on the real world.

Weapon(s)(?): A Magnum she keeps holstered on her belt. Only uses it for emergencies.

Strengths: Lucy is no fool. She's analytical to the core (who could ask for more?), cunning when she needs to be, and for her, the grind never stops. If you ask for her to get a task done in 48 hours, she'll get it done in 12.

Weaknesses: Lucy Todorov is way too headstrong. The problem is, she doesn't know when to quit, even if she really needs to. It's almost as if there's another mind driving her, a mind other than her own...

Payton Breaux "Anima":
Name: Payton Breaux

Alias: Anima

Age: 20

Appearance:
Spoiler:
Payton is a pale, tall, athletic girl standing around 5’7”. Her hair is a dark brown, almost looking black most of the time, while her eyes are a slately grey. She usually looks very intimidating, and if not that then she’ll have a relaxed composure about her.
Her outfit usually includes something that matches with the black gloves--which she wears when she’s out in public--and then more casual and relaxed when she’s not out and about.

Personality: Payton is an interesting character, she's pretty calm and collected in almost any situation but can flip a new coin and be the biggest bitch you ever met. When it comes to people, she's neutral, everyone knows her and she knows everyone but she has no real close friends. Because of this she blends in and fits pretty much anywhere really. Don't stab her in the back, by the way, because she will not be very happy with you and will personally go out of her way to show you she isn't. Payton also isn't the smartest when it comes to books but is quite knowledgeable in street smarts and things she would need for her trade. Especially after working in the business with her accomplice.

Bio: As the daughter of two retired “villains”, you would think her life was filled with dread and hell. But, really, it was quite the opposite. Her parents raised her assuming she might have gained either or both of their abilities, but never forced it upon her as the two of them had wanted to live as normal of a life as possible with their new baby girl. That doesn’t mean they didn’t keep eyes on her, especially in case she did sport her father’s Life Absorption, and after an incident at her elementary school they pulled her, moved cities, and debated on homeschooling her for the rest of her life.
After some debate, they put her back into schooling, this time making her wear gloves and forging the idea to the teachers and students that she had to wear them at all times due to a skin disorder. This worked, and she continued life as normal as an unordinary child with the ability to drain one’s life force could.
In her teen years, she found herself bored. She didn’t make many close friends, even though everyone knew her and didn’t mind her. Payton fell in love with her first and last girlfriend, Sarah, during her second year of highschool. Her parents warned her that it wasn’t a good idea. And, that ended up being true. Upon her girlfriend kissing her for the first time she found Sarah becoming pained by what was her power. Sarah, scared and also concerned for her own safety, started rumors and ruined Payton’s reputation. Outing her powers and forcing her to leave school and homeschool herself until graduation with her parents help. After gaining knowledge from her parents and her own self, she left to do her own thing.
Now, she runs a business with Cana’s character to steal things for clients and make money.

Abilities:
> Life-Force Absorption: Upon contact via her lips or hands, she can slowly drain the life force of her victim. Payton can choose to drain their life force completely, which would result in killing them, or instead drain part of them and give them the ability to recover over time depending on how long she held them there. She prefers to use the later method.
> Aura Manipulation: A unique ability, this allows her to use her own aura in attacks and also sense and see others auras around her. When looking at people directly it’s like a white glow, sometimes with different colors sewn in to represent strong emotions and moods they feel. An example would be someone suffering from depression would have a mix of black and blue in their white. However, this is subject to be different from person to person, especially if they possess powers and are willingly using them and/or she’s aware of it.
> Enhanced Athleticism: As the name implies, she can perform athletic deeds easier than most. Jumping, sprinting, parkour, and various gymnastic stunts alike are less difficult for her.

Weapon(s)(?): She doesn’t use weapons, even guns or daggers. She prefers to rely on herself. However, she does have a Swiss army knife on hand at all times.

Strengths:
> Good at sensing people around her due to her powers, comes in handy when
> Life Force Absorption is an extremely helpful ability when she’s in a pickle or in a situation that can cause her harm. It is mostly why she is so cocky and confident because she knows she doesn’t have to worry about things that most girls would have to worry about.
> Being born with her parents powers, they helped her understand them for the most part. However, a lot of her own time was spent figuring them out and mastering them on her own time.
> Good at holding conversations and getting people to at least be an acquaintance of hers. She has eyes and ears all over she can ask for if she asks kindly or does someone a favor.

Weaknesses:
> She doesn’t use weapons of any kind and has no good combat outside of her powers.
> Sometimes she can become extremely overwhelmed in large cities by the various aura’s that show. She’s slowly come to adjust to it but Payton will occasionally wear sunglasses or stay away from large crowds just so she doesn’t have to deal with it.
> She has a minor fear of people stabbing her back and betraying her, which can sometimes get in the way.
>Payton isn’t exactly very educationally smart. She rarely cared for history and math, and english was a bore to her. Other than street things, business things, and other important things for her trade she doesn’t have a lot of knowledge.

Other:
> Upon working on her again, I’ve tried to focus her whole theme around the body, soul, and mind. Just thought it was kind of a cool thing to put in other. Heh.
> She is currently in alliance with Cana’s character.
> Character 1 of 2! :3

Blythe:
Name: Blythe Cicero

Alias (optional): Venus

Age: 20

Appearance:
Spoiler:

Personality: Blythe is calm, level-headed, and calculating. She rarely allows her emotions to lead her decisions, often finding dealing with these matters to be both unnecessary and tiring. She is adept at forming and achieving her goals, usually adopting tunnel vision once she decides that she desires something. Blythe is contempt in isolation and has difficulty seeing people as little more than pawns for her own goals, with the exception of the few people that she keeps closer to herself. Her outside personality is charming and flirtatious and she is good at obtaining what she wants from people; on the inside, though, she is profoundly guarded and meticulous with how she conducts her interactions.

Bio: Born as Scarlet Parks, Scarlet was a typical child; she attended school, came home to an average but loving family, and pinned her future dreams on the goals of a college education, decent career, and perhaps eventual marriage. This childhood came to a halt when Scarlet came home one day to an eerily quiet home, with her father and mother notably missing from their typical spots. She was then kidnapped by a crazed scientist, her past dying as soon as she disappeared from society. Here, she was experimented on in every way possible; she didn’t see the light of day for over six years. Her blood had been drained and refilled with blood that had been molecularly altered, thus resulting in her existing in a state that the scientist had considered to be close to perfection. Her beauty had reached supernatural levels, she possessed incredible strength and grace, and she gained the ability to manipulate human emotions.  This success was the scientists’ downfall - eventually, Scarlet’s power was enough to overtake him. She murdered him painfully and slowly, with little regard for pity or mercy.
Once she finally escaped and entered the real world once again, she briefly considered returning to her family; however, in her altered state, she was unrecognizable. Moreover, she was sure that the wounds her family had sustained from her loss had long healed over. She was also now grappling with her newfound need to consume blood, which seemed to be the one drawback of her new identity and abilities. Thus, Scarlet became Blythe and shrugged off her old identity as if it were little more than a jacket that was out of season. She moved to Mt. Superior and used her newfound abilities to open a theft business with a friend, otherwise staying fairly low on the radar.

Abilities:
> Supernatural Beauty
> Emotion Manipulation
> Blood Manipulation
> Enhanced Agility

Weapon(s)(?):
Depends on the situation, but Blythe usually sticks to her abilities for defense; she carries a few small knives on her, though, and has been known to keep a gun on her person in various situations.
Strengths:
> Her blindingly good looks in combination with her emotion manipulation abilities allow her to easily take advantage of those attracted to her.
> She is incredibly agile, thus allowing her to be quite adept in combat as well as in stealthy situations.
> She’s really intelligent and doesn’t place a lot of weight in emotions; this allows her to remain level-headed and calculating in high-pressure situations.

Weaknesses:
> Blythe’s greatest weakness is her reliance on blood. When she has not consumed any, she wilts like a flower without sunlight. In these situations, any semblance of her moral compass disappears and she becomes increasingly reckless, violent, and will do anything to obtain blood.
> Though she’s very fast and agile, she does not possess a large amount of physical strength.
> Her bloodlust extends beyond her need to consume blood; as a result of this, she can oftentimes make situations messier than she would like.

Other: more coming

Re: [APP THREAD] Superior RPG

Post by Comrade Squid on Thu Apr 12, 2018 5:43 pm

I hope stealing characters isn't un-American:
Name: John Doe

Alias: "The Patriot"

Age: 43

Appearance:

Stands at 5'10". And yes, he does usually wear a bright red coat, for some reason.

Personality: "Unstable". "Unhinged". "Insane". These are all words that may describe John Doe,except  they're not strong enough to paint the incredibly disturbing portrait that is his mind. He is driven by patriotic ferver, an acidic rendition of the military idol, powered by a nightmarish engine. Though he holds that his ideals uphold peace, freedom, and liberty, his paranoid methodology and tendency to "shoot first, ask questions later" puts rest to that idea. Perhaps best described as a vigilante Judge Dredd combined with a schizophrenic Captain America on cocaine, adderall, and crystal meth, John Doe protects America and the American dream- one bullet at a time.

Bio: The records of John's life are few and far between, with little information existing from before his vigilante appearance five years ago. The name "John Doe" is obviously a pseudonym, but nobody knows what his real name is, perhaps not even him. When questioned about his background, the answers he gives are wildly inconsistent, from being a very concerned citizen to being a superhuman bred by the US government. It is possible that he is lying, but it is more likely that he actually believes every word he says, as he has claimed to be in every war the USA has ever been involved in, including the Revolutionary War and several fictional wars.

What matters now is that he exists, wandering the dark alleys and lonely country roads of Mount Superior, searching for the enemies of the American ideal; Nazis, Communists, the Klan, none are safe from his patriotic fury. However, he rarely ever confirms whether or not someone is one of these "undesirables" before swiftly executing them. And it doesn't take much to convince him either. Law enforcement has attempted to capture him for years, but he has a propensity for appearing and disappearing like a ghost, even before his powers manifested. Perhaps he was always superhuman, but after the Uprising, his powers increased tenfold, warping himself and the world around him to fit his warped version of reality.

Abilities: John Doe's powers are subtle, unlike his personality. Most of them manifest as, simply put, incredible "luckiness" rather than something easily documented. Resistance to bullets, better accuracy than would be expected for a clinical lunatic, and allegedly the ability to fly by firing explosives at his own feet are all sighted powers.

Weapons: A massive arsenal. John has been seen with pistols, revolvers, sawed-off shotguns, bolt-action rifles, submachine guns, assault rifles, light machine guns and very frequently rocket launchers. Most notable though is an old-fashioned trench shovel that he uses as a melee weapon, and believes to be not only sentient, but a subordinate officer.

Strengths: Fairly strong, incredibly powerful with a firearm, and notoriously dangerous due to his mental instability.

Weaknesses: Dumb as a box of rocks and easily influenced by all but his designated victims.

Other: I regret everything.

Even the Rose Archer needs some help from time to time:
Name: Abigail 'Abby' Sharp

Alias: Centurion

Age: 23

Appearance:

Personality: Perpetually done with Ran Mao's crap. And everyone's crap, really.

Bio: Abby's life hasn't been too happy, but it hasn't been too tragic, either. Since she was conceived out of wedlock, her father wasn't there for her, and so she grew up with a single mother. Though they didn't come from much, her mother made sure she was well-adjusted, expecting nothing but honors-level grades from her in high school. She taught her to be disciplined, and so Abby grew up disciplined. So disciplined, in fact, that she joined the armed forces after high school, serving in Afghanistan until she got injured by a land mine. The explosion blew off her leg from the knee down, and she was sent back home.

Fast forward about a year and a half. After ardous physical therapy, she learned to walk again with a prosthetic leg. She looked for work that would put to use the skills she learned in the military. No place would take her, until she came across a certain Hightower family. Now, she works as Ran Mao's personal bodyguard -- a job that entailed a lot more than she bargained for.

Abilities: No superhuman abilities, but she's gotten herself back to peak physical condition after serving in the military. She's a trained martial artist and a deadly shot.

Weapons: Her arsenal can vary, depending on the situation and how well she prepares herself for it -- she's working with a vigilante, after all. Whatever the day, though, she always has a concealed carry handgun on her person.

Strengths:
-Highly effecient combatant
-Disciplined, as already covered. Abby will make sure she pulls her own weight in a team, and will see a job through once she starts.
-Pretty smart, can adapt as a situation requires.

Weaknesses:
-No powers
-Honestly kind of a judgmental person
-Can't take a joke
-Not the most insightful, either. That's not to say she's dumb -- she was an honors student, after all -- but her speciality is less 'creative insight' and more 'common sense.'

Other:
-She's female John Diggle and I love her.

Aaron LeBlanc:
Name: Aaron LeBlanc

Alias: Ampere

Age: 19

Appearance:
Aaron LeBlanc:

>>5'10"
>>A jagged streak of bright blue in his hair since his powers manifested
>>His blue eyes glow brighter depending on his mood

Personality: Aaron is pretty spastic in his movements and thought process. He's often louder than he needs to be, and his temper can get quite hot quite quickly. He'd also never admit to desiring human attention as he much prefers machines. While he isn't evil, he doesn't have any grand reservations about not doing anything sinister to get what he wants. He definitely stands more in the 'I'll do what I must to accomplish my goals' mindset, though he'd prefer to roll with heroes.
Bio: Aaron was the only child born to Jonathan and Rose LeBlanc in a small town outside of Phoenix. Things were simple for the LeBlancs for the first decade of Aaron's life, and he was able to learn a lot from his parents in that time. However, during his 11th year, Aaron's father was offered a job up North. In spite of what it meant, he kissed his family goodbye and departed. The LeBlancs did their best in the ensuing years to remain close, but living half a country apart does nothing good. During this time, Aaron grew quiet and turned to machines to occupy his time. For years he tinkered and toyed with all sorts of machines and robots, deciphering their secrets and learning a great deal about how they are made. All the while, he watched as his mother instead turned to alcohol and withered.

In 2018, Aaron was working late in the small shed in the LeBlanc's backyard that he called his "workshop" on a project that would be the culmination of his hard work for the past several years. With the pieces laid out before him, a tear rolled down his cheek. And lightning struck.

The teenager awoke days later in a hospital bed with his mother sitting in a chair across from him. As it turns out, lightning had struck his workshop just as a brilliant light was spotted in the sky above.

His powers manifested almost immediately in the form of sparks that danced between his fingers. He spent the next few weeks in his workshop figuring out his powers and using them to work on his project. He aims to use his abilities to learn more in the future, and to hopefully create amazing advancements for humankind.

Abilities:
>>Electromancy: This is the power to both control and generate electricity in its many forms. Aaron is able to create bolts of energy as well as absorb charge and use it to increase his output.
>>Technomancy: Stemming form his electromancy, Aaron is able to manipulate machines and create them using most anything he finds (within reason, of course). This also accentuates his hacking abilities.
>>Lightning Speed: Aaron is able to move quickly when he wishes. However, this occasionally leads him into a pattern of sporadic movement that lands him somewhere else entirely

Weapon(s): He has an old Swiss army knife that he used to use for tinkering before his powers manifested

Strengths:
>>He has a very analytical mind that helps him think through things very quickly. Although his reasoning may not always be the best, he is very much able to think quickly enough to make up for it
>>Outside The Box: Aaron's years of tinkering helped him to become an excellent troubleshooter. Because of this, he can almost always find a way out of a hardship.... or has, at least

Weaknesses:
>>Personal Skills: Aaron can handle himself in conversations and with friendships, but he struggles with intimacy of any kind. He has never gotten close with others, and he very much regards his secrets as his own.
>>Overconfidence: Aaron tends to believe he can accomplish anything because, in the past, he's been able to come up with something.

Other:
>>He keeps a backpack with him at most times

Evan Caine:
Name: Evan Caine

Alias: Acheron

Age: 17

Appearance:
Evan:

>>6'0"
>>The only scar on his body is a thin one along his right forearm from the accident.

Personality: Evan is often quiet and seemingly filled with remorse. He rarely seeks out the attention of others, but he isn't socially anxious. When he was younger, he was very talkative and easygoing, but he has grown more pensive after the accident.  

Bio: Evan was raised alongside a wonderful brother in a large city in the Midwest by two wonderful parents. He lived a simple life as an American child and teenager. He studied, played sports, hung out with friends... for all intents and purposes, he was average, but he didn't mind; life was good to him.

Roughly two months after his 17th birthday, he was driving his family around town as he had many times before. He knew the city like the back of his hand, and nothing unexpected ever happened. Maybe it was this sense of security that lead his guard to wane, though I think it could definitely be pinned on the driver of the Truck.

Evan was immediately ejected from the car, but it took him several moments to realize he hadn't died. Once he stood, he turned to find his car a flaming mess, and though he tried to rescue the bodies inside, they were just that: bodies. Corpses.

Evan became distraught, and even the police officers who arrived at the scene had trouble restraining him in his cries of heartbreak and shock. They had all died, yet he bore no scratches.

Over the next few weeks, he tried and tried to end his life, though no amount of water in his lungs nor bullets in the head would allow him to be with his family again.

Abilities:
>>Invincibility: Evan's body is essentially impervious to damage, and it seems to heal any damage that it takes very quickly. Because of this, his functions are on overdrive.
>>Enhanced Senses: Evan's amplification is also noted by increased senses. He is able to see very far away, track scents, and hear voices across a crowd. On top of this, he has increased speed and strength.

Weapon(s): He has two knives (one in either sleeve) and a handgun (strapped to his back) that he keeps on his person.

Strengths:
>>Severity: Evan lost his desire to hold back a long time ago, and if he sets his mind on a task, he will do everything in his power to complete it.

Weaknesses:
>>Pessimistic Realist: Evan tends to be extremely negative about things, but he isn't afraid to tell it like he sees it.
>>Disregard for Safety: Being as his powers don't allow him to get hurt, he has almost forgotten the need for safety.

Derek Reynolds:
Name: Derek Reynolds

Alias (optional): Eruption

Age: 18

Appearance: 
Spoiler:






>Derek is 6’1” and 145 lbs with dark green eyes. He wears generally the same attire in the pictures above with slight variations.

Personality: Adventure and a sense of thrill are what drive Derek more than anything else. He is a wild card, constantly living on the edge and seeking a rush above all else. He is always willing to try something new, no matter how crazy it may seem. Derek has an natural curiosity of the world and seeks to fulfill it at all times. He has somewhat of a "bad boy" attitude about him, a twinkle of mischievousness present in his eyes almost constantly. Always somewhat of a trouble maker, Derek has limited regards for what others think and, as such, often finds himself acting in ways others do not approve of. He is rather blunt and direct, saying what he feels without thinking. Not necessarily snarky, Derek has a bit of a sarcastic nature about him, though he means well. Derek embodies the concepts of acting and before thinking, relying on instincts and his intuition as opposed to reasoning his way through a situation. Regardless of his impulsiveness, Derek tries to be kind hearted, good-natured aura surrounding him. As such, he is fairly social with those he comes across, to an extent, and typically enjoys the company of others.

However, Derek has a side to him he keeps hidden, deep within. Despite his attempts to maintain an energetic demeanor, Derek struggles deeply with forming meaningful connections with others. Due to his insecure attachment to his parents as a young child, Derek finds it hard to form bonds with those around him. He will appear social and able to make friends, though he feels as if this is only superficial and he cannot connect with others. Even if he is unaware, he is generally untrusting of others, as if waiting for them to hurt him in some way. He holds no outward resentment to his parents, despite what they have done, but seeks to be independent and put that part of his life behind him. Though within this hidden side of him, a rage simmers and boils beneath the surface, waiting to erupt.

Bio: Derek was born in a small town outside of Phoenix to Wilson and Katrina Reynolds. Derek’s childhood was incredibly average for the most part and he hated everything about it. He lived in a standard house, went to an average school, and was expected to behave like a typical child. From an early age, Derek realized he wasn’t quite like everyone else. While everyone was content living their mundane and completely uneventful lives, Derek always sought for more. He felt stifled by the constraints of small town life and wanted nothing more to escape and follow a path of adventure and thrills. Constantly acting out and causing a ruckus, Derek frequently found himself in trouble with those around him. Teachers berated him in school, adults constantly reprimanded him for his boisterous and unruly disposition, and he struggled to find people to understand his perspective. As a result of his constant troublemaking, his parents grew increasingly frustrated and his father deemed it necessary to punish him frequently in an attempt to correct his behaviors. Derek’s discipline was harsh as they attempted to teach him how to behave properly and respectfully. He was physically and verbally abused frequently at home, causing him to often stay away from his house as much as possible, which led to a vicious cycle as this further increased his punishment when he returned. However, regardless of their methods, the drive and passion inside him burned brightly, a raging fire unquenchable by those around him.

Derek never realized just how different he was from everyone around him until he turned 16. Bringing home substandard grades and a phone call home about his disruption of class, Derek was subjected to another discipline session from his father. At this point in his life, it did little to phase him; he simply accepted what would transpire in an effort to move past it as quickly as possible. That night, he snuck out of home and somehow made his way to the desert outside of town. For the first time in his life, he found himself unable to bear the weight of all against him and broke down in a fit of despair. Rage and sorrow flooded through his veins as his sudden anger for his parents and everyone around him boiled forth. With a scream, the sand around him erupted, seemingly responding to his emotions. He was incredibly confused, though another cry caused the same reaction from the desert around him. Afraid to be out on his own after the craziness, he fled and snuck back into his house before his parents knew he had been gone. From that day forth, he found that he had awakened some sort of supernatural abilities within himself and has been experimenting with them ever since.

Once Derek turned 18, he was ready to leave his life behind him and go out on his own to experience the world. Hearing of the recent Uplifting, he eagerly packed his bags and set out for Mount Superior with another from his town. He has only been in Mount Superior for a short time, though he already enjoys it immensely more than his life back home.

Abilities:
>Sand Manipulation: Derek is able to generate, shape, and manipulate sand at his will into an expanse of creations. He has the ability to create sand on its own or manipulate it from the environment. Furthermore, he is able to compress stone materials around him into sand which he can then shape at his will. This is more difficult though leads to the potential of stronger creations.
>Damage Empowerment: Upon receiving physical or mental damage, Derek can become stronger, faster, more durable, and restore energy depleted. As long as Derek is able to withstand the damage dealt, he is able to gain these benefits. Derek is able to feel pain and be suffer wounds, he is just able to convert damage received into strength for himself. Derek has not tested just how far this can go, though he’s never afraid to try.
>Self-Detonation: Derek has the ability to create explosions generated from his own body. Moisture on his skin, sweat, saliva, blood, and more are able to be turned into explosions at his will. Derek can control the strength of these explosions by channel this into a controlled blast or relinquish control for a more devastating effect. Getting too wild with explosions could be detrimental to his body and could be very harmful, but that probably won’t stop him.

Weapon(s)(?): He carries around a knife just for kicks though he doesn’t really know how to use weapons all that well.

Strengths: He is physically fit and has immense endurance, combined with his stubbornness and strong will allows him to continue pushing on. His powers fit well with his personality and over the years he has become more skilled in using them successfully. Derek is not afraid to take risks, which can either be a benefit or a hindrance depending on the situation. He has a strong sense of intuition and relies on his gut, which again can be detrimental at times.

Weaknesses: Derek almost always acts before thinking and rushes into situations far too easily. He finds it hard to trust and rely on others and as such, does not often take into account other people’s ideas. His struggle to connect with others makes it difficult to form bonds, something he has a hard time overcoming. His inability to demonstrate restraint can make using his abilities more dangerous.

Other:
~Derek’s face claim is Bakugou Katsuki from Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia).
~He has a fear of flying though he is not sure where it comes from or why.
~He always wears a silver chain with a single simple silver ring on it around his neck and touches it when he is nervous.
