Thanks Primarch and I already got her permission in a PM and edited Militia's characters real name in before you said it.

I for one would be more than interested in doing the fight with the Iron General as that's the point when everyone's characters first interact.

The Person



Name: Shae Onarah
Age: 33
Nationality: English
Nationality: Medical Research
Appearance: Very similar to Liv Tyler

Lifestyle

Currently she is on a good salary at a new Medical Research center involving gene therapy, when her focus is through a microscope she has noticed she can perform intricate changes which stun others working with her for her trials greatly aid creating potential cures her lab is hungry to provide the world. So far though these breakthroughs are many years away from human trials, regardless of their promise.
Still it is more than enough to have her career in the bag, for she is a dream team member ... not that any know why she has so many successes but sometimes successes speak for themselves, who cares about the answer to why something happened when what you can focus is an answer to something that others need enough to pay for.

The Hero

Code Name: Whisper
Powers:Telekinesis Mastery (she can move objects with her mind at a distance)
Weakness: No armor
Skills: Telekinesis Mastery, Surreal Painting, drawing
Special Equipment: None
Costume : None

Background and Personality

Shae talks slowly and is incredibly kind to those she finds trustworthy. Shae has refined her abilities by having them constantly in practice. When not around bigots Shae will often be reading while her abilities see a perfectly crafted glass fairy somewhere in the room managing a humorous task one would expect a carefree fairy to do. Primarily she uses this as a practicing technique to control objects perfectly while keeping her primary attention focused on other things but has found it useful to entertain others.

The fairy she has at the moment has over a hundred separate pieces which stay together by Shaes mental abilities. Shae's mind is disciplined enough for it to keep it so while even is asleep, although the form will be subdued. If she is knocked unconscious or drugged however, the fairy's pieces will loose cohesion. If intricate dynamic behavior is not cared for, Shae can telekines' objects of considerable weight.

Shae abilities do extend to be able to cause others direct harm, so far though, luckily for her, she has avoided needing to. Using her skills to help others manage exotic materials in a laboratory or fathom more about the workings of nature of the mind or to help others or heal others is more her cup of tea.  However she will do what it takes if happiness of herself or others is at threat. As such, although naturally principal-led she is is no pacifist and would take up arms for good causes. Proving a cause is justified in doing so to her though ... may not be so easy.

Hm, I'm thinking about sending in a villain character of my own. Are you still accepting female villains?

I could make her a big-time criminal, but she will be more chaotic neutral than any sort of evil alignment.

With the approval of Maelyn's character via PM (Watts) all positions of the Eight are filled. (Sorry Kate, if you'd like to redesign her as a villain you'd be welcome).

Would you be willing to tinker with the idea of a villain whose power was superhuman luck?

I realize the idea isn't very common...but i'd be willing to work with whomever to make it be playable in this game.

I think some hard limits on it would be relatively simple. Any thing that happens as a result of the villains powers to another character would have to be agreed on out of game.

It would also not necessarily always work. Sometimes, even the luckiest luck out. I think these occasions could be determined by rolling some sort of dice in the OOC thread for a given encounter, if the die came up a given result...bad luck would be written in for the character.

*grins* Alright. In what other ways would you suggest to add limitations to the power itself, so that it's fair?

And what sort of odds would you use on the die roll? It obviously can't be too long of odds, or it would never come up in a role play at all. I was thinking...a 10 percent chance of bad luck. 5 percent chance of a minor setback, 5 percent chance of a terrible setback. Determined by rolling either a 1 or a 20 a die 20 perhaps?

I'm thinking about creating a super villain that is a manifestation of negative energy.
This villain will be like a ghost/banshee that cannot be destroyed with brute strength, but that is only during her first growth stage. 
At first, she is only a nuisance, coming out at night while the host is asleep, breaking a few windows and petrifying a few people for a few hours.  Even if the heroes cannot hurt her, they don't mind too much because she does no real damage, but slowly this energy is becoming an entity, growing more powerful each night. 

What this battle would be is a race against the clock, trying to find out what the banshee is, then who it's spawning from, and how to finally stop her from reappearing before she becomes powerful enough to, say, drain peoples' life forces.

I'm also thinking that eventually the negative energy will fully consume the host if the heroes cannot find her in time.
OR maybe I could just jump to the end, and the clock has already stopped and the character is already a super villain.

The Person

Name: Margaret Abaya
Age: 24
Nationality: Filipino
Day job: Self-Employed pasty chief
Personality: Margaret has been described as a sweet, and intelligent girl.  She has a strong sense of duty, and has a tendency to want to please people, even at her own expense. There is no denying her simplicity.  She claims that she feels no need to make a name for herself in any field, as long as she has a roof over her head and food in her belly, she is says that she will be content with her life. 

One of the reasons Margaret became a pastry chief was because she enjoys putting smiles on peopleís faces.  She also feels the constant need to create things.  Before she settled down in the kitchen she pursued sculpture, pottery and sewing.
Despite her compulsion to make people happy, there is something that people pick up on, something that keeps them from sticking around her for too long.

What people sense is Margaretís other half: a detached, anti-social, and self-centered personality. If she could, she would live on her own, in a place without any human contact.  She tries to deny it, but in truth, Margaret is afraid of people. Somewhere deep inside her, under her quiet and timid consciousness is a festering resentment for the world and all the selfishness and greed in it.

Backstory: This hatred of hers did not come from hardships in life.  As a matter of fact, Margaret comes from a very rich family.  Her hate and distrust for people most likely spawned from her being raised in a very safe environment. 
When she saw what happened outside the safety of her own home, she was shocked and disgusted by the behavior of people: their apathy towards the environment, greed, racism, and every other ugly word you can think of.

Consciously, Margaret turned away from politics and tries to avoid watching news of current events because it only upsets her and aggravates the ugly twisty feeling inside her, but that is not the case when she goes to bed.

Once asleep, Margaretís second personality is let loose to do as it pleases.  It started out as nothing more than an annoying ghost with no form, scaring people and simply making a lot of noise, but as time passed it seemed to grow stronger.  This ghost-like entity first became able to break brittle objects like glass and ceramics.  Then it gained the power to petrify people for a couple of hours, but the time of effect is getting longer and longer.

What was once a nuisance is now a threat.  The simple ghost has become a cruel banshee, with a singular purpose to destroy everything in itís path, and with each night its rampages have been increasing in both intensity and duration, and the hours Margaret is fully conscious and awake seem to be getting shorter and shorter.
Appearance:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

The Villain

Codename: The Wraith
Powers:
Ghost Form She cannot be harmed by physical attacks and cannot be contained by physical restrains, but she is also unable to inflict melee damage.
Banshee Wail A strong, ear splitting cry that can shatter glass. Splash damage.
Prettification The power to paralyze a person.  The duration of paralysis depends on the personís will power.
Flight
Weakness: In its early stages, this ghostís actions are chaotic and driven by pure anger and fury, making it weak against mental and telepathic powers.  It is easily distracted and duped.  Its level of power is directly proportional to Margaretís mood and health, and can only manifest when Margaret is asleep.
Skills: Baking, pottery, analyzing human behavior, a sociopath's ability to lie and manipulate people.
Special Equipment: None
Costume: None.  In this point in time, the Wraith has a more solid form and vaguely resembles Margaret, but the facial features still shift and swim in the air like smoke.  The wraith has no real definite body shape.

The Person



Name: Shae Onarah
Age: 33
Nationality: English
Job: Head of Fertility clinic
Appearance: Very similar to Liv Tyler

Lifestyle

Currently she heads a Fertility clinic that specializes in designer babies she quickly established after realizing when she focuses her powers through a microscope she can perform intricate gene changes to stem-cells which direct specific genes. Such blatant and direct use of human genes to the elevation of options to those with money is unethical to all who have any ethics at all.

Shae's ethics however depends on how much money her bank account can be lined with.

The Villian

Code Name: Whisper
Powers: Prodigious Telekinesis Mastery (she can manipulate matter her mind at a distance)
Weakness: No armor
Skills: Expert Medical knowledge concerning genes and stem cells, painting.
Special Equipment: None
Costume : None

Background and Personality


Even placing her desire to milk while feeding the ambitions, elitism and vanity of rich people at the clinic aside, Shae has a dark soul set on becoming as black as pitch. For while fooling with a oougie board at a party once, in the attempt to scare those who were dealing with forces they did not understand,
she ... contacted something else. A true poltergeist, a truly powerful one.  But it wasnt something sort to play her game against her, it was a spirit that relates to her, loves her and choose to link its own poltergeist abilities to hers.   A spirit which is power hungry, proud and wanting to make a statement on this world, one her values have been changing to match. Weeks after doing so she had became more blatant with her own incredibly improved powers. Coupled with a good imagination and a belief she deserves to be more relevant than others, is a fast path to be proven right or wrong either way ... quickly.

Right, KaylaM has stepped out so we have one hero spot open! First app in approvable condition gets it. (That includes you Kate, if you want to go back to hero which you are of course welcome to do. Just actually follow the template, no merging personality and backstory, and give me a figure on how much she can lift with her telekinesis, in tons please, or pounds if she can't lift a ton).

Fine for the most part, just give her a weakness that's more of an achillies heal.

I'm not looking for anything specific, all I'd advise is that you use the currently approved characters and perhaps some notes I've pointed out to people to work out what's appropriate for the game.
