JaphPowers: Sentient Digestive System:
Maggott's digestive system consists of two enormous, sentient, techno-organic slug-like creatures, nicknamed Eany and Meany. Whilst Maggott himself can not eat, his slugs can devour any form of matter with incredible speed. When they finish feeding, they return to his abdomen and impart the energy from the matter they absorbed into Maggott’s body. This energy nourishes Maggott, temporarily granting him enhanced strength and turning his skin blue. If Maggott is separated from the slugs for an extended period of time, he becomes extremely weak and risks death.
Maggott's slugs can act autonomously from him and appear to be highly intelligent. They communicate with him via a telepathic rapport, and are extremely sensitive to magic. Skills:
Enhanced strength and durability (made even greater after Eany and Meany feed depending on what they feed on). Psychometric Recall:
Can reveal the past events of the objects they absorbed to Maggott, also it allows him to read the past events of a certain area.
Speaks fluent Afrikaans, a West Germanic language, spoken natively in South Africa.Bio:
Born the youngest of five in a small South African village, he never grew at the same rate as his siblings. He was constantly ill and threw up every bit of food that was given to him. There were many times he couldn't even keep down water. His family feared he would die slowly and painfully from starvation if something wasn't done. The family could not afford doctors to treat him, but the few times they did see him, they stated he had some form of stomach cancer.
Unable to bear the pains that sent him into shock most days anymore and the burden he was on his family, Japheth ran away at the age of twelve, intending to commit suicide in the desert. It was there that a man saved his life. He came down from the sky and sliced open Japheth's stomach, revealing the cause of his pain. Out came Eany and Meany. The beasts who had squirmed and fought to free themselves for twelve years from his body. They fed and returned to him like well trained dogs. The moment they reentered his body, Japheth had never felt better in his life. The pain was gone.
The man revealed himself to be a mutant named Magneto and expressed interest in the young boy joining his cause. Japheth, ever loyal to his family, said he could never leave them again the way he had before. With that in mind, the pair traveled back to his village only to find that the rebel group known as the Afrikaners had killed his father and taken the rest of the villagers as prisoners. Japheth begged Magneto to help them and the man did...by slaughtering everyone. Filled with anger, hate, and disgust he swore he'd never join Magneto. The man told him that he would change his mind one day.
Two years later, Japheth met a geneticist named Nathanial Essex who expressed interest in helping the strange colored mutant. Eany and Meany fed five or more times a day and to do so they had to tear through his stomach and then burrow back in. It caused him horrible pain and was a terrible mess (what with the blood and all). Essex made a deal with him. All Japheth had to do was hand over a DNA sample and Essex promised to make it easier for the slugs to feed. Japheth agreed, willing to do anything to ease the pain. Essex installed a door type panel into his abdomen after carving out his insides to make space for the two growing creatures. The panel was made of bullet proof glass and could be opened and closed to allow the creatures out.
Japheth was thankful, at first, but later found out that Essex was not the great man he claimed to be. It was only after traveling with several other mutant groups that he learned Essex was also known as Mr. Sinister. He's yet to track the man down, becoming sidetracked when Eany and Meany are accused of killing a member of the mutant group he was with at the time. It was later revealed that the slug like leader of the the Ru'Tai was the one behind the killing. The monster was never caught and Japheth fled the group, fearing they would try to kill Eany and Meany. He soon ended up at the Xavier Institute.
Now in his late teens, he spends most of his time at the Institute. He still intends on finding Magneto one day, as well as Mr. Sinister and the Ru'Tai. But for now, he would prefer to spend his time flirting with girls.Personality: Maggot:
Despite the hardships in his life, Japheth remains open minded and enjoys every second of every day. He's out going, boastful, and not shy when it comes to girls. He's fiercely loyal to his friends. The only worry he has is that the Ru'Tai will come back and Eany and Meany will be in danger again. He's also shy, at first, when meeting a girl and telling her what his ability is as most have a bad reaction to the thought of it. But once he gets to know them, he opens up easily.Eany:
Eany only wants what is best for Japheth. He wants Japheth to be happy and find love one day. He's also a terrible flirt, always crawling up to pretty women and cooing, purring, and clicking at them. He doesn't understand why they usually scream or kick at him, or run away. He just wants to be pet.Meany:
Meany, likewise, wants what is best for Japheth. However, she becomes horrible jealous when he flirts with women or when Eany tries to as well. She knows that no woman will ever really accept Japheth and she only wants to spare him the heartbreak. Because of that, she usually tries to chase women off, even going as far as to lash out at them.
Energy Projection: 1
Fighting Skills: 3
*Heightened strength when empowered by slugs
GM Plot: Japheth was living with a small group of mutants when he first entered America. Several of the mutant girls turned up brutally murdered. The group knew Japheth was a flirt and what his slugs, Eany and Meany, could do. They accused him of going off the deep end when the girls rejected him and having his creatures kill them. Japheth witnessed one of the murders and claimed it was a group of slug like demons. He even found out they were called the Ru'Tai, but no one believed him. Japheth fears that the Ru'Tai are some how related to Eany and Meany. He also fears that the Ru'Tai and their slug like leader, Pilgrimm, will come back one day and his friends, Eany and Meany, will be in danger again.
Canon Plot: Japheth feels unappreciated by the X-Men. If it weren't for Eany and Meany, he would be nothing more than an average man with strangely colored skin. With the help of (1) X-Man or Student
, he's becoming stronger and more intelligent.
