An incident occurred in which the two chemicals known as 'Fear Gas' and 'Joker Venom' were consequentially mixed together. A dosage that was found to be fatal to all who were present, all save one. A Jane Doe was discovered at the scene of the crime after Gotham City SWAT were sent in to analyze and terminate the situation. The Joker had stolen Fear Toxin to test in conjunction with his own Laughing Gas brew, abandoning the scene of the crime after finishing his testing believing it to be very successful with no
survivors. Not wanting to take credit
for what he had done just yet lest the Scarecrow come after him. Luckily for him, the lone survivor was none too talkative. She did not stir in any way to the stomping of boots or the yelling of orders from one person to the other. She merely tilt her head in wonder as she found feet approaching her. Sitting in a knee length long sleeve black dress that buttoned up to a collar, she looked as though she had lost her way to a funeral.
Her ears rung as she could hear them like a echo of a gunshot trying to get through to her. It was only after one of them raised their visor and took hold of her shoulder, she raised her head. Her eyes looked empty, one more than the other. As one of her irises was now black with a glowing violet pupil while the other was just the opposite, a glowing violet iris with a black pupil. Without moving an inch, she soon found that the SWAT member before her was shaking until he fell to his knees before her. Someone else called out to him, but before there could be any response the man shot himself through the skull. Splattered with blood, the girl's heart rate remained the same as she stared at the place where the man's eyes had been before he fell to the ground to stain the cement.
The others in the unit quickly put on their gas masks, questioning whether the chemicals had really been cleared yet as they had analyzed. After several others approached her and ended up writhing on the ground seemingly in pain, the team started to back out concerned for their safety. It wasn't until one of the men identified her as a citizen of the city and called out her name that she turned her head away from the keeled over team. Giving those she had been looking onto a long enough time to recover to the point they could shakily toss a tear gas grenade her way. She had been about to touch the grenade out of curiously before it released it's own chemical concoction upon her. They waited until she was wheezing to the point where she seemed as though she might pass out because of the close proximity to the grenade before seizing her.
The next time she came to, her sight was still kept from her as they had taken measures to blindfold her. They did not wish to give her another chance to unleash hellish visions upon any innocent civilians, so they took measures to ensure her long-term stay at Arkham Asylum. At first, they placed her into a group cell where they kept the lower less threatening characters who did not require top security. When placed into this environment one would assume such a fragile looking girl would be torn to pieces. However within a matter of minutes after one of the inmates decided upon removing her blindfold, she had a third of the room dead while the rest were either trying to escape or fight off some invisible enemy.
Removing her after this proved difficult, but seeing what happened when she was in close quarters with others could not be ignored by Doctor Jonathan Crane. He wanted to help
her. Analyze her, cure her?
Observe her to the fullest extent.
As he wondered if she had any fear
left in her at all.
This story could be modified to simply feature
a character like scarecrow, namely a psychologist/therapist
The basic outline of my character's powers is that she can
inject visions/images into people's minds in a way that makes
them feel as though they are in different surroundings
if they have seen her but only after they have seen
(( Sort of like medusa more or less. ))
A power that works until they have left her line of vision. Purely images
though not sound so that there is room for people to see
through her powers. Additionally her lips have the power to
make other's feel
pain but only on a mental level by
stimulating the areas of the brain that trigger pain. This of
course requires direct contact however and ceases as soon
as contact is disrupted.
(( Making her pretty compatible with Scarecrow I think. ))
I would like to play this out with Cillian Murphy's version
of Scarecrow/Jonathan Crane. (( Aka The Version from
Batman Begns, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises. ))
Though you are welcome to use elements from the comics
as well! My hope is that this will be a long running roleplay
that will go through character introduction then proceed into
where the two form a sort of pact/relationship. Where Crane
introduces her to Scarecrow and his ideals. Convincing her to
become much like Harley Quinn is to The Joker. (( Although
a lot more passionate and a lot less one sided. ))
Jonathan Crane Approx. 28 years old. Girl:: 18 years old
Details may be discussed.
PM with any interest.
