Speaking of which, ugh, why are all the pictures that are almost right have bright red hair!?

Don't know, but the photoshop queen could change the color to black or brown easily.

I may take you up on that if I can find the picture again. Her parents both have dark hair so it just doesn't make sense for her to have bright red-orange (which is why I'm making such a fuss over it) unless it's a mutation or she dyed it. Both which are possible, I guess. Storm has white hair, and Mystique's natural hair color is red-orange, then the blue scaly skin.

this is the chick.

Name: Krystle Bobbi Drake
Age: 18
Place of Birth: New York, New York
Family: Robert “Bobby” Drake (father), Sarah Kessinger(Mother),
Position at School: Student
Appearance:  see photo

Powers:

Thermokinesis – like her father, Krystle is a mutant with the superhuman ability to lower her external and internal body temperature, projecting intense coldness from her body.  This ability converts the latent thermal energies in and around her body into an unknown form of energy that is efficiently dissipated. A related mutation has rendered her body tissues unaffected by sub-zero temperatures. Krystle can consciously, immediately lower her body temperature from its normal 98.6 Fahrenheit to absolute zero (The point where all molecular motion stops.) and lower within the span of a few tenths of a second.
As her body temperature falls, the surrounding moisture in the air that is in contact with her is similarly lowered.  Just as condensed moisture forms frost, this moisture forms an icy covering which encompasses her entire body.  It also obscures her facial features. As she has learned to increase the severity of her coldness, the covering has assumed the consistency of crystalline ice. This ice constantly cracks with any movement of her body, and immediately reforms. (Hence, there is a cracking sound when she, covered with ice, moves.) Through practice, Krystle has learned to control the intensity of her coldness.

Thermal Vision: The ability to see beings due to the heat signature that others give off, because of the absence of heat around her.

Cryokinesis: Krystle can use her mutant ability to control moisture such as to freeze any air moisture into super-hard ice. This ice can be formed into any object of her choosing: the only limitations are her own imagination, and the ambient air temperature which determines how long her ice sculpture will stay icy. She does not have to hold the ice physically with her hands in order to shape it.  Apparently she can simply direct the waves of coldness she projects in certain ways so as to create ice in the shape she desires.  Iceman has shown her how to form ice-ladders, ice-slides, ice-shields, ice-bats and other constructs of ice.

Skills: Krystle is a skilled snowboarder and ice skater, and has excelled in Russian.  She is a passable pilot, and has achieved competency with the X-Men’s vehicles.

Backstory:
Bobby met Sarah while a member of the Avengers, after he departed from the X-Men for a brief time.  They dated for six months before Sarah broke off the relationship when she discovered she was pregnant.  Sarah kept the pregnancy and Krystle a secret from Bobby until Krystle’s abilities manifested, at which time, Sarah felt compelled to contact Bobby and tell him about his daughter.
Since she was thirteen years-old, Krystle has attended and lived at the school.  Her relationship with her mother has been rocky these past few years, however; she has grown close to her father through the commonality of their mutant abilities.  Due to their similar abilities, Bobby has been able to help Krystle attain a degree of aptitude with her abilities that he was unable to reach until he was a much older age. 
Krystle has a personality that is very similar to her father’s.  While she isn’t completely carefree, her grades over the years have often shown a lack of commitment.  Krystle enjoys the occasional practical joke, and usually does her best to break the tension. 

Turn-Ons: Someone who can make her laugh.  Guys with broad shoulders and plenty of muscles. 
Turn-Offs: Being lied to, being compared to her father, people who think they’re better than everyone else.
Extra Details:  Upon turning 18, Krystle adopted her father's last name, driving the wedge between herself and her mother deeper.

vin26m: Bruin looks fine for the most part, but the scope of his intellect and potential of his martial arts is a touch over the top to say the least, especially as he's still only about half the age of characters like his Dad as he appears in the comics now.

I'll scale him back.  I'll repost in the next 24 hours.

Name: Alexander Moon
Age: 26
Place of Birth: Seoul, South Korea
Family: None living, distant relatives still in South Korea
Position at School: College level math Math and high school physics teacher, pursuing a PHD in physics.
Appearance:

(let me know if you'd like it resized)

Powers:
Breathing Underwater - Alex can breathe in both air and water, and additionally needs only very little oxygen to survive in the first place. He can hold one breath of normal air for about forty minutes before needing to take another. This allows him to function well in low oxygen environments of all kinds. Of course, he would be even better at it if he didn't smoke.
Enhanced Swimming - Alex can swim as fast as a dolphin or fish, with top speeds of about 50 miles per hour. He can be very agile, but loses that agility and sharp turning ability at his highest speeds. While typically Alex does move in order to swim, the source of his speed and power actually seems to be from a mild form of hydrokinesis, so he can actually move through water without the use of his limbs or body for propulsion, much like a torpedo. He is not able to use this mild hydrokenisis for any other purpose however.
Malleability - While naturally Alex feels no different from any other human, he can, with concentration become malleable and shape and compress his body, like an octopus, and fit through incredibly small spaces. This leaves him more vulnerable to bruising and bludgeoning in general, as his muscles and bones are not as solid and sturdy as a regular human's in general.
Mild Regeneration - Alex certainly doesn't have the kind of regeneration that benefits mutants like Logan, rather, it's a more realistic regeneration. His wounds heal slightly faster than normal, but they often scar or heal improperly due to the speed of it. He can regenerate limbs, but it takes months and they would likely be smaller and less functional than the first. Think starfish, though he would not be able to regenerate his brain by any means, and mortal wounds are still going to be mortal unless he gets proper care. It certainly hasn't helped him heal the limp he has from a long time hip injury.
Venomous tentacles - On the side of either hip, Alex has a mass of long thin, and sometimes decorative tentacles (much like jellyfish) that hang off of him. He cannot move them as they have no muscles, but they are incredibly venomous. Analysis shows that his venom is chemically similar to the neurotoxin of the box jellyfish, which can kill at the jellyfish's small size so at Alex's size it's almost completely fatal to any living creature who touches it. Thankfully, Alex can suppress the automatic poisoning by the tentacles very easily, but you definitely don't want to sneak up on him and grab them or touch them while he is asleep and cannot stop the automatic response. In times where he must work closely with someone, he merely cuts them off and it can take up to two or three weeks for them to regain their former length through his regeneration. Also, anything thicker than bare skin will likely be thick enough stop the nematocysts on the outside of the tentacles. Alex is immune to his own poison.
Skills:
Math Savant - Alex has an incredible in-born ability to do math. He can do huge and complex calculations in his head with incredible speed, and has an intuitive feel for math that allows him to mow down most problems. He had his first PHD in math at the age of 19 and is currently working on a PHD for theoretical physics, a field that's more challenging to him conceptually but allows him to apply his love and skill for math.
Physics expert - While he doesn't have the natural talent for physics as he does math, he's educated himself thoroughly on it and is a fast upcoming expert in the field.
Intelligent - Alex has a natural intelligence and is really quite good with creative problem solving.
Gambling - It's a weakness of Alex and he tries to stay away from it but he actually enjoys poker and games of chance quite a bit, and is skilled enough to at least not lose money at casinos when he chooses to go.
Good Memory - While not quite photographic, Alex has an amazing recall ability.
Writing - He hasn't published anything, but Alex keeps meticulous journals and writes quite a bit in his free time. He's not the as good at creative writing as he is at academic writing and non-fiction.
Backstory: Alex was born in Seoul in South Korea, to a regular human mother and a father with a very slight mutation. Unfortunately, his physical mutation was evident since birth, and he was born with pale white, almost iridescent skin, and pointed ears. He was branded since birth as a mutant, and so his parents feared for his safety. The decided to flee the country, as the mutant rights movement in South Korea varied between non-existant and mortally persecuted. They managed to escape to America when Alex was about two years old, and they replaced his traditional Korean name with the much more Americanized "Alexander."

Of course, Alex doesn't remember any of this. He has only very vague memories of his parents, not much more than shadows and impressions that are far faded. His parents actually died when he was about four. He is not sure why, but the fact is that their deaths coincided with the finished development of his tentacles, both the harmless ones on his head and the deadly ones on his hips. Either way, Alex ended up as one of the many mutant children on the streets, (though he never ran into the Morlocks.) It was during this time that he tried to cut out the poisonous tentacles on one of his hips, but as he was a child he gouged too deeply. This is where his ill-healed hip injury comes from. However, things turned around when he was eight; He was found and entered into the safe haven of the school. He was a surprisingly fast learner, and though initially he lagged he quickly caught up, and due to his skill in math gained his PHD at the young age of 19. He's a voracious intellectual, and appreciates and values learning deeply due to his disadvantaged youth.

The Institute was his home, and he chose to remain there as he pursued his second PHD, eventually consenting to teaching to fill his time and help contribute to the school.

Turn-Ons: He does like a little bit of rough play, but is rather inexperienced for his age and is open minded, intelligence is a big turn on for him and he doesn't mind a bit of muscle.
Turn-Offs: When things get too rough and painful, especially given the ease at which he bruises, generally interacting with body fluids and excretions besides the expected ones, lack of intelligence, pettiness or shallowness.
Extra Details: Alex has a somewhat prominent limp and uses a cane when he has to remain standing for long periods of time or walk long distances. He's capable of walking and even running without it but it is painful for him. His grasp for math and physics doesn't really extend to the arts or in sociability so he can be somewhat awkward in social situations. He is also a smoker.

Name: Hans Maximoff
Age: 20
Place of Birth:Germany
Family: Pietro Maximoff (father) Mother (unknown)
Position at School: Student
Appearance: Like the picture although his hair is slightly whiter.



Powers: Superspeed: Hans can go from zero to breaking the sound barrier in the course of a few steps, and as a consequence he can generate sonic booms and shock waves, or at lower speeds, just put a lot of air in motion, to the point of generating whirlwinds and dust devils if he runs in a circle. His speed also allows him to run short distances up the sides of buildings and across the surface of bodies of water.

Durability: In order to avoid tearing himself apart traveling at those kinds of speeds, his joints are better lubricated, his tendons are stronger, his bones are sturdier, his tears are more viscous, and he is friction and heat resistant. His stamina and endurance are also markedly increased.

Accelerated Metabolism: Everything about Hans moves faster. His heart beats faster, he breathes faster, his metabolic rate is through the roof, basically every cell in his body is working faster and more efficiently than your average human. He also metabolizes drugs and minor poisons like alcohol so quickly, it's really not worth the effort.

Accelerated Brain Function: Hans thinks about much faster than a normal human. The practical reason for this is so he can perceive and react to change when he's traveling at speeds the human brain is not equipped to handle, but it doesn't turn off when he's not traveling at high speeds; his perception is always fundamentally different. He sees the world as if it's moving in slow motion. This gives him time to pick up on details other people might miss and come to conclusions before other people's synapses have had time to fire. His thought processes are not necessarily more advanced or complex than anyone else's, but since he's getting to the answer quicker, he can seem more intelligent.

Extremely lucky: It doesn't happen all the time, and specially only when he is concious, but more often than not things seem to go his way, almost as if the odds were stacked in his favor.

Skills: Hans can speak English, Russian, French, German with ease.

He has been trained in hand to hand combat, although he is by no means an expert.

His quick thinking allows him to learn stuff easily, and he has a good memory, so he has a big reservoir of knowledge (although lot of what he knows is useless it's still in his mind)

Backstory: Little is known about the beginning of Hans' life, he isn't clear on much really. What he has gathered is that his father had no intention of revealing who his mother was, and that he was being raised in a remote place in Germany because it was better to be away from things.

His father might have had a plan when he tried to put a hermit's life to raise his son, but he didn't count on how quickly he himself got bored, and how much like him his son would be.

Eventually he was taken to the city, and he tried his best to fit in without freaking everyone out by displaying his powers. Strangely and probably becuase of the similarities between them Pietro was actually a decent parent to him and took well Hans' request of joining the school of higher learning.

Turn-Ons: Have things go his way, being listened to, being admired.

Turn-Offs: Being ignored or disregarded.

I reduced his combat ability (removed firearms and most martial arts except for grappling) and the scope of his knowledge.

I'm not sure if I want to call him "Bruin" or "Brute."






Name: Teachdaire McCoy, aka Bruin
Age: 18
Place of Birth: Boston, MA, USA
Family: Son of Abigail Brand and Beast
Position at School: Student, science and math teacher
Appearance: 5'11", 220 pounds, very little body fat, very muscular, green hair, glasses, unusually long arms and legs, unusually large hands and feet

Powers:

Superhuman strength - Class 1 - Bruin is able to lift 1 ton

Superhuman speed - Bruin is able to run and move at speeds that are slightly beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman stamina - Bruin's highly advanced musculature produces less fatigue toxins during physical activity than that of an ordinary human.  He can exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.

Superhuman durability - Bruin's body tissues are harder and more resistant to certain types of injuries than the bodies of normal humans.  His physiology can withstand great impact forces, though he can be injured by many types of conventional weapons such as standard firearms and bladed wweapons.  However, he can withstand physical impacts, such as falling from several stories or being physically struck by many superhumanly strong beings that would either severely injure or kill a normal human, with little to no discomfort.

Superhuman agility - Bruin's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.  He can walk a tightrope or a slack rope as easily as most people can walk on a sidewalk.  He can also walk on his hands for many hours, or perform a complicated sequence of gymnastic stunts such as flips, rolls, and springs.  He can easily match or top any Olympic record on any gymnastics apparatus.

Superhuman dexterity - Bruin can perform many tasks with his feet as easily as a human would do with his hands.  His manual and pedal dexterity are so great that he can write using both hands at once or tie knots in rope with his toes.  His skills in all aspects of baseball, basketball, soccer, gridiron football, volleyball, wrestling and ice hockey are on par or better than the best professional athletes of any generation.

Superhuman reflexes - Bruin possesses reflexes that are superior to those of the finest human athlete.

Superhuman senses - Bruin possesses enhanced, acute senses that are comparable to those of certain animals, enabling him to see and hear distant objects more clearly than a normal human.  He can also identify and track someone purely by scent. 


Skills:

Genius-level intellect - Bruin possesses a genius-level intellect and great insight when it comes to science, engineering, technology and math.  His other interests include art, literature and music.

Olympic-level athlete - Bruin's athleticism rivals or surpasses that of normal humans in peak physical condition who have been training all their lives.

Martial artist - Bruin is highly skilled in grappling martial arts, including wrestling, judo, aikido and jiujitsu.  He is also well-versed in pressure points. 

Mechanic, electrician, technician, engineer - Bruin is capable of maintaining, repairing and modifying mechanical, electrical and computerized devices.

Medic - Bruin is capable of performing basic first aid as well as diagnosing common illnesses.

Multi-lingual - Bruin is fluent in English, Spanish, French, Latin and Japanese.  He can also mimic various accents, including American Southerner, English, Irish and Australian.

Pilot - Bruin is a competent pilot, including fixed wing aircraft and rotary wing aircraft.

Driver - Bruin is a skilled driver of wheeled vehicles as well as motorcycles.

Singer/Dancer - Bruin has some talent when it comes to singing and moving his body to music.

Backstory: Teachdaire McCoy was an exceptional student-athlete whose physical and mental gifts eventually surpassed the upper limit of non-mutant humans.  He is prepared for the next stages of evolution that his father went through, and expects to do great things and make incredible discoveries along the way.  He has not exhibited any of his mother's mutant abilities, but he did inherit her green hair.

Turn-Ons: BDSM
Turn-Offs: M/M
Extra Details:

Bruin commonly uses a motorcycle.

Bruin usually spends much of his free time in the nearest lab or library.

Bruin has a mild allergy to dust.

Bruin prefers to fight bare-handed.

Bruin's favorite sport to watch is ice hockey and his favorite team is the Boston Bruins.

Agreed.
