Nathaniel James LowtherAbilities:
Oratory Suggestion Empath. With the use of his voice, Hamlet has strong sway over events that happen in his immediate presence, with limitations. He may be able to, with a quick one-liner, inspire his own body to move swiftly out of the way of an out-of-control truck, but he can't inspire his body to pick up said truck.Birthplace
Sexual Preference: StraightAppearance:
Eyes: Bright green.
Hair: Sweeping chestnut brown.
Attire: Favours embroided jackets, and traditional old British navy greatcoats.
Hamlet looks like the epitomy of a perma-stubbled, dashing rogue. His long brown locks fall over his glinting green mischevious eyes, and his well-chiseled jaw is nearly permanently set in a wicked grin.Association:
: Dramatic, prone to flair and pomp, rich and vibrant, engaging, intense, eccentric and charming. Biography:
Nathaniel is the product of a prestigious English high school, in the satellite areas of London. Away in the country, and fully exposed to adolescent silver-spoon politics, he was both the victim of teenage cruelty and eventually a perpetrator of it. After months spent being harassed for his lower-class background, he sought sanctuary in the chess and amateur dramatics clubs. He isn't sure exactly when his X-gene manifested, but it was around the age of 18 that he began to display startling skill in his chess games, winning several local competitions, and in his theatrics, where he was cast without any hesitation as the lead in several of the school's productions of Shakespeare tragedies (which crucially earned him the attention of certain members of the girl's high school). Slowly becoming aware of his "gifts" he turned his abilities of persuasion, menace, strategy and manipulation against those in the higher years whom had so victimised him. Eventually finding out that his strength nearly tripled in an after-school fight, Nathaniel revelled in his new found powers.
It was also through his own scholarly research that he happened upon the Origin of the Species and other such texts. He became an advocate of Nieztsche. He believes that he can endorse the "Will to Power" better than when Hitler tried to do so, and with more success. Nathaniel, or Hamlet as he now wanted to be known, became obsessed with his own superiority, and wanted to solely socialise with others such as he. In other words, mutants.
It was only in the Brotherhood, having garnered much media attention by now, that Hamlet felt his ideas were mirrored nearly perfectly. While he isn't for all-out genocide, he believes there should be barriers, and that homo sapiens superior should have rights beyond that of mere mortals.
EDIT: I realise that picture is tiny, so I've gone into a bit more detail in the appearance section.
