That's fair. I had a different idea anyway. For the record, I'm more than willing to discuss if the power needs to be tweaked, because despite the limits it's obnoxiously versatile. I'm trying to figure out how to balance it between being an ability with serious potential implications and not breaking the game. So with apologies to Minister Faust,
NAME: Tommy Nakamura
NOM DE GUERRE: Callout
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Straight
ORIGIN: Son of Tenjin, a deified scholar/poet of Japan
RESIDENCE: Los Angeles, CA, USA
PARENTS AND RELATIVES OF NOTE: Tommy's mother is Alison Nakamura, an accomplished software engineer of Irish and French descent. His father, Hideyoshi Nakamura, is of course really an incarnation of the god Tenjin; he is often away on "business trips" (his family knows what's up, few others do), but is a distinguished professor of history at UCLA.
POWERS: Major power: Logogenesis -- Tommy can literally speak objects into existence. (He can't directly affect existing objects, and speaking things that aren't physical objects is meaningless.) It's generally easier if the objects he wants are relatively simple, not too large, and meant to appear nearby, although the actual limits are still unknown as he practices. Speaking longer and more precise phrases helps too. He doesn't control the objects he created (unless he's actually holding them or something), although they can be created already in motion. Broadly speaking, Tommy needs to understand the object he's making, although not perfectly -- he could create a copy of a book he's read several times and knows well without remembering the text verbatim, for example. He doesn't have to actually know how to create an object in whatever the normal way is, though (he can create a sword without knowing blacksmithing)
Tommy's pronunciation and enunciation needn't be perfect, but they do need to be close enough, and he can't use his power if he can't speak. He doesn't need to speak loudly, and a sore throat isn't likely to stop him, but sufficient damage to his throat (or just holding his mouth shut) might. He needn't be perfectly specific -- if he says "bunch of grapes" getting the type of grapes he wanted isn't usually a problem -- but he can't be actively deceptive. Summoning a "cane" might get him his option of styles but it won't be a sword-cane. Any language works (and Tommy can't resist abusing the hell out of this), even if it's a dead language or unusual dialect, but it has to be a real language. Constructed languages are fine, but Tommy can't just invent words on his own and never explain them to people. He has no idea if actually constructing a language with its own full vocabulary would work.
Normally, created objects are temporary -- not temporary enough to disappear mid-use unless Tommy is doing something pretty extreme, but they don't last long after he's done with them. (That said, Tommy can't intentionally end his own items by fiat -- if someone uses his own creation against him, he can't hasten its time limit.) He's sort of getting the hang of knowing about how long they'll last, but it's a slow process since he doesn't have any special ability to sense that; he has to go by his notion of how "well" he invoked his power, which is kind of weird and he hasn't been able to explain it to anyone else. He can, however, create permanent objects, although it takes enough time to rarely be useful in a crisis; a permanent object that's finished is truly "real" and not part of Tommy's power any longer, meaning it's not really distinguishable from any natural object unless it's somehow odd in itself. Most forms of making money off this would be probably illegal and definitely unethical (Tommy's taken up sculpting, but making gold in any serious quantity is bad news).
Creating living creatures is basically not a thing. It's not that Tommy's power can't theoretically do it, but he can't understand anything more complicated than an amoeba well enough to create it. He could create a steak, but grasping an actual cow's brain is beyond anything he can realistically manage. Creating a sapient being is right out -- to understand a soul he'd have to be a god. In any case, the results of screwing up could be horrific and also get his ass kicked, so he would never try.
Minor power: Divine toughness. Tommy is significantly harder to hurt than a normal person, in a way that's oddly biased toward protecting his life (a legacy of his father's immortality). It doesn't protect him from papercuts at all and punches only a bit, but his bones are quite hard to break and his vital organs are outrageously tough. It might not be possible to actually kill him without supernatural means, but he wouldn't be eager to find out if he actually understood fully how this power works.
EYE COLOR: Brown
HAIR COLOR: Black
WEIGHT: 178 lbs.
BODY TYPE: Athletic, reasonably muscular
APPEARANCE: Tommy is a handsome young man, dark-haired and dark-eyed, with mixed Caucasian and Asian features. He's obviously in excellent shape and doesn't mind dressing to show it off, although he tries to keep it reasonably casual because he assumes people will rightly think him an ass if he flaunts his family's wealth too much. He wears his hair short, and styled so as to look effortlessly nice. He's usually smiling, and moves with an easy, confident stride.
Beyond the Image
LIKES: keeping in shape, tennis, literature, girls
DISLIKES: idiots, horror movies, bullies, people who can't have a bit of common decency
TALENTS: go, languages (speaks English, Japanese, Spanish, Mandarin and Hindi fluently, and a serious smattering of others for obvious reasons), athletics, pretty much everything in school, reasonably strong-willed
CHARACTER TRAITS: driven, kind, loyal, unsure
PERSONALITY: Tommy is a fairly nice young man who's a bit too used to his life being easy. He tries not to act like that, because frankly people thinking he's being a jerk about having it easy is something he can't stand (even when they're right), and he works hard at what he does for exactly that reason. He's loyal to his friends and generally is mostly pretty confident and acts like it, and certainly has no fear of things like public speaking. One thing that really bothers him, though, is that although he enjoys his classes at Nebula High, he really isn't sure that superheroing is even the best use of his powers -- and he honestly doesn't know if he's being rational or just afraid that he's going to get himself killed.
Tommy was born in LA to the aforementioned parents, and grew up a happy child -- his family certainly didn't lack for much, even if his father couldn't always be around. He probably had his powers from birth, although it wasn't obvious until he could say the names of objects. His parents raised him multilingual once he began speaking, which was quite easy for obvious reasons.
Tommy is smart -- not superhumanly smart, but pretty damn smart by any reasonable measure -- but more to the point he's just plain good at school. Although he didn't hit a lot of nerd stereotypes he still occasionally got pushed around for being a "teacher's pet," but he was generally tough enough to hold his own. Most of the time. He still isn't fond of bullies.
It's hard to say why he decided to learn to be a superhero. Maybe it's just that he felt like someone besides him should benefit from his powers. His parents are supportive, if somewhat worried; his father never was much of a warrior. The teachers mostly like him, although explaining why his powers aren't that useful for cheating tends to take a while. Gym and combat classes have whipped him into shape in a big way, and he complies because having so many classmates who are physically superior is kind of embarrassing. He tries to be vague about the source of his powers, because it'd just sound like he's bragging.
