Well, here's my second submission, rather more in favor of him now:
Name: Corwin ‘Corey’ Reynolds, Seraph
Race: Human, Mutant, American
Mutation: Corwin’s body generates a unique form of energy field, the particles of which most readily manifest themselves as contiguous ‘hard’ energy constructs. Essentially, the energy behaves more or less like matter, conforming to similar laws of conservation and force, but can be manipulated by Corey consciously and subconsciously at will. This includes retaining cohesion with itself and Corey, meaning that he cannot ‘emit’ the energy at any sort of distance from his body. Presently, Corey’s body generates, roughly thirty cubic feet worth of energy, which Corey can’t generally turn ‘off’ except under conditions of exhaustion. Generally it reflects a shade of golden orange light, but with concentration, Corwin can cause it to reflect most colors in the visual spectrum.
Effective Power: A level 4 mutant, Corwin’s energy manipulation offers him a wide array of abilities, depending on how much he concentrates on the refinement of his abilities. The energy projections mirror Simple shapes require little to no effort or concentration on his part, but the more complex the shape, the more he must focus on ‘crafting’ it. With practice and familiarity with any given shape or form however, comes the potential to create it intuitively (such is the case with his ‘costume’ and select other offensive and defensive tools at his disposal). The energy mirrors the molecular structure of any matter Corey seeks to emulate, so it can be rigid, crystalline, elastic, malleable, or any variation thereof (liquid and gaseous forms yet escape him given their propensity to disperse). Again though, the more complex the arrangement, the more Corwin must focus, so simple rigid forms or fibers come most readily to him.
Generally, Corwin uses his power to form simple constructs like blades or bludgeons or shields and other implements, emulating the molecular structure of a hard ceramics or metals to great effect. Since the constructs obey his will, they are effectively weightless to Corey, and thus he can use them to great effect in combat against foes, reshaping them as need suits him.
It is possible for Corey, through supreme effort of will, to force his constructs back into a more natural state of energy. Doing so however means relinquishing his conscious control over the field, and given the matter to energy conversion ratio, the result tends to be a massive uncontrolled release of raw energy (an explosion). It is conceivable that Corey could create a construct capable of directing said energy at the same time he released it, resulting in a channeled energy blast or effect, but thus far it remains beyond his abilities.
Physical Description: Corey stands just high enough to be considered tall, with auburn thick auburn curls and bright green eyes that give him a very open and outgoing countenance. Trim and with broad shoulders and an agile bearing, everything about Corey speaks to an understated strength and athleticism.
Personality/Clothing style: Corwin strives towards the sort of polite, subtle enthusiasm and cordiality that conjures to mind a particular sort of old-world gentry. He is an excellent listener and mediator, giving every indication of a most impartial and devoted individual to the idea of human/mutant relations. Corwin is rarely found in dress without a collar: polos, dress shirts, or the jersey of whatever sport currently holds his attention (depending on what’s in season), are coupled with slacks and loafers and tennis shoes.
Emotional Type/"Yellow-Blue" Leotard Description: “In-Uniform” strikes an entirely different character. As a citizen, he believes in civility and moderation, but when diplomacy fails, his underlying ire and furor boil over into a nigh zealotry in defense of his fellow mutants. Wearing a form fitting royal blue leotard, his own power provides the yellow contrast in the form of padding and armor which Corwin varies to suit his needs. Clad in glowing armor and wielding weapons seemingly made of light, Corwin exemplifies his vengeful namesake.
Relevant History: Born the scion and oldest son of an old money blue blooded Boston family, Corey was anything but the humble, understated man of mediation while growing up. He grew up wanting for nothing; spoiled, but only so long as he maintained the pinnacle of performance in sports and school and social activities, he was a veritable prince all through adolescence. Which is why it came as such a shock to his equally proud and vain parents when they learned their son had been struggling to suppress latent mutant abilities. Corwin’s powers first developed as a purely subconscious ability to direct his energy field, minute extension of his imagination which he managed to keep subdued, hiding it with smaller constructs only a few grams in mass. When his power began to develop in earnest however ballooning into larger and less manageable forms, he became forced to seek help. Attempting to keep his inquiries quiet, he discovered Xavier’s institute, but in attempting to convince his parents to send him there, he became frustrated, belligerent even as his parents insisted he attend ‘only the best’, obstinate in their concerns regarding certain rumors surrounding the institute. In a fury, Corey’s powers manifested before his parents and sibling’s eyes, glowing constructs which could no longer be hidden beneath clothes or as mundane objects.
Corwin got his wish in being able to attend Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, the parents setting up a not inconsiderable trust with the school before sending him away, and cutting all other ties. Initially embittered, he sought means to suppress or ‘cure’ his powers, but his efforts only lead to further and further frustration. It was Professor X himself who found the outlet for Corey’s frustration and the means by which to truly learn to control and develop his unique abilities: Sports. The same activities to which he had aspired as a ‘normal’ child proved most effective, as he learned to relate to his fellow mutants through competition and games, taking the lead on every sport the institute offered, slowly but surely developing his abilities towards whatever equipment the game at hand called for. Learning to win and lose with grace was a hard lesson for Corey, but one he took dearly to heart, and influences him even now as he still views the world in terms of ‘on’ and ‘off’ the court.
Fears: Corwin seldom lets his fears show through, and has developed a reputation for unflappability, but deep down he is still very much afraid of what others think of him as a mutant, and that despite all his efforts he may never change their minds.
