LGBT Friendly!

Currently We have 24 male characters, and 21 female, so things are slightly male heavy.

The concept

A crate of flu vaccines has been left in one of the lab rooms that was thought to be safe and appropriate for storage. However, radiation from a nearby experiment leaks through the walls and contaminates the vaccine. Your character, practical as always, goes in to get his or her yearly flu vaccine. Unbeknownst to yourself, the vaccine is contaminated, mutated, and extremely potent. Mere hours after injection, the human body normally forms antibodies to kill off the dead cells of the vaccine, and immunizes you. Not so with Flu Vaccine (insert numbers and letters here). Instead, the body systems integrate with the vaccine, linking cell and DNA structure to trigger fundamental changes within the human body.

The result? You guessed it. Superpowers. Or "symptoms" as the government will later name them.

The Drive:

Characters will be immersed into a story drive plot with triggered GM events, government threats, possibly otherworldly threats (if I choose to develop that area), as well as player vs. player scenarios.

Items of note:

-Superpowers early on will not be almighty. To begin with. The list of symptoms below are based on a time progression system, and will gain momentum as they "level up".
-Characters are to be "human". If otherworldy things are involved (aliens, etc), this *might* change.
-The game world will be relatively small to start with. The outbreak will be located within a smaller, fictional city that I will work up maps for
-Character death and the stripping of powers via police force "curing/immunization" rounds are *completely* within the realm of possibility.
-Stupidity (I.e., deciding to go all wrecking ball on a local bakery) will alert authorities, resulting in pursuit and possibly capture (Think Saints Row notoriety system)
-Players will be encouraged to have a "back up" superhero/villain should their main character be killed or stripped of powers
-Blatent ripoffs of known superheroes will not be tolerated. If you turn in a sheet that contains a rather hairy man with an ademantium skeleton. claws, and super healing, I may or may not roll up said sheet and spank you with it. Be original !
- The ONLY times that a dice roll will be required by a player will be instances of PVP outcomes, police outcomes, and symptom dealings (increases, mutations, etc.) This game is NOT system heavy at all.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Where does this game take place?
A: This is a fictional city in the north-central US. The city is named "Glenside", and contains roughly 350,000 people in the downtown area.

Q2: Where is my character allowed to live within the city?
A: Anywhere! There are apartments and homes in just about every district, so whichever strikes your fancy really. If you end up eventually settling in the safe haven, you're free to do that as well.

Q3: Where do I start?
A: The answer to this question is almost identical to question 2, you may start anywhere you like for the most part, but please be courteous of scenes in progress!

Q4: How much does the general public know about what is going on?
A: The general public knows almost nothing at this point (roughly 2-3 weeks from the first immunization). Anyone who is caught by the police simply vanishes.

Q5: Can I be forced into PVP?
A: For the most part, no. As long as your "Grace" item hasn't been used for the day, you're free to make a single teleport to anywhere in the city under direct threat of challenge.

Q6: What is the posting rate required in Deviations?
A: For the most part, most of the players will post anywhere from once a day, to twice a week. There is no pressure to move any faster than that, but any slower than once a weekish, and you may have issues keeping up.

SL - 2 - The portable black hole is now larger, able to open to roughly the size of a bowling ball. Weight limit is increased to 50 lbs.
SL - 3 - Ability mutates, finally allowing two way travel between places that have been physically seen. Portal takes roughly half a minute to open wide enough for use. Complete focus is needed.
SL - 4 - The portal is now able to be opened further, allowing for multiple persons to travel at once until the symptom carrier enters. Once the symptom carrier enters, the portal is one-way, and closes behind him or her.
SL - 5 - The Devi may now open a portal to a blank "safe" space that exists on an empty plane. The space lasts up to three hours at a time, and is inaccessible by anyone other than the one who opened the portal. The space within is infinite, but will not sustain life without the portal creator within. Once he or she leaves, all life within is extinguished. Inorganic items are unaffected.

*ONLY* real species may be used. Nothing mythical. All transformations are one-way, and may not be interrupted or stopped mid-shapeshift. All human thought is retained when shapeshifted.

SL - 5 - The Devi is now able to animate a single tree, forcing it to uproot itself and "walk" on the thick roots, carrying and protecting the Devi until instructed to re-root itself.

Name: Gerard "Gerry" Spoonbender
Ethnicity: White English ( immigrant assuming we're starting in US etc, if not I need to change slightly)
Sex: Male
Age: 45
Relationship Status: Widowed
Previous (Or current) Profession: Previously a mental health counselor, now living on a good but not extreme lifetime pension inherited from his late wife.


Hair: Medium, blonde-brown with a few grey strands. Has beard and moustache mostly same colour except also with some red. Front of beard turned grey/white.
Eyes: Blue, 2, bespectacled
Skin: Yes.
Weight: 290lbs, but recently reducing.
Height: 5'5
Other: (physical defects/mutations, overall appearance) Horrible appendix scar, missing two front teeth and three molars, tattoos on arms - white roses, unicorn, heart with axe in it, and a wolf howling at the moon bearing his wife's name and the years she was alive. Tends to dress very casual. Has started buying a few fetishwear items and gothic costume as he's started to explore his kinky side.


Personality: friendly, humorous, would do almost anything for someone he loves. Has a kinky side he was unable to explore when married due to his wife not sharing it. Grieving. Prone to some bouts of depression. Low self esteem. Creative. Intelligent but not always smart.

Background: [Three good paragraphs]
Gerry is a survivor of abuse, as was his wife. He emigrated to marry her and between his and her healing and his own tendency to bouts of depression he got into mental health peer counseling. He's a good writer but unpublished and lacks discipline. That's actually been a problem in a lot of his life, because unless something really stirs him, like abuse or mental health or ties he loves, he tends to lack ambition. That's impacted his health as he put on lots of weight after moving to the US and driving everywhere. Recently he's started getting back into shape though.

He's discovered a kinky side that includes some sadism as well as masochism. He hasn't even able to explore that while with his wife, which led to frustration, but since she passed two years ago he's begun to enter the local fetish community and is looking to embrace the lifestyle.

He cares little for money, and would just as soon fritter it away on eating out, buying some gadget or sex toy, or more importantly just sending it to a friend in need. It's a giving nature that has been taken advantage of before.

(Randomly selected... Roll for category = 1, Mind. Roll for symptom = 1): Omnilinguistics
Kind of fitting for a physically poor mental health counselor I guess... Does that mean I get to talk them into jumping now? ;)

Hobbies and Interests:
Currently very invested in the fetish scene. Also paganism, writing, mental health, theater improv, etc.

Name: Mei Tsui
Ethnicity: Chinese
Sex: Female
Age: 26
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Phlebotomist


Hair: Brunette
Eyes: Brown
Skin: White (Lightly tanned sometimes)
Weight: 110 pounds
Height: 5'6"
Other: Nothing out of the ordinary, really. She has a small scar on her right ring finger.


Mei generally tries to be cheerful, she tries to put things in a positive perpspective. But she's also a realist. But all of this is on the surface, how she wishes to be percieved. In her heart, she is far more troubled than she lets on. She is an emotionally troubled girl, only in recent years has she faced those troubles and tried to come to terms with the events of her life. Not an easy task, especially since she sees herself as someone who is always on the lowest rung.

Mei was bon in Chaozhou, a city in eastern Guangdong Province, China. Mei's father name was Cai and her mother Zan. Her parents both worked at an opera house... her father was a stage set designer and her mother a prominant singer. In fact it was at the opera they met. They fell quickly in love, and during their first year of marriage Mei was born.
Almost 5 years ago, it was something of a normal night at the opera house. Both her parents were working that night. But something happened while the stage was being set up. Cai was setting up some seating on the stage when he fell from the top of the setup. He was severly injured and hospitalized. He was in a coma for almost 2 weeks before he passed away. This was devastating to the surviving family.
Mei felt like her soul was ripped out. She didn't want to face what had happened, she tried to avoid the realization of it all together. But she knew she had to keep strong for her mother's sake. Zan wanted to leave the life she had known, and so she and Mei moved to the United States.
Now Mei didn't have many skills to work with when she and her mother moved to America. But needing to work, Mei went job hunting. She put applications into random places, not caring where. She of course got many callbacks, but mostly for some.. unscrupulous people. They saw an oppurtunity to use her for something sexual, or to use her to make money for themselves. But while she does have looks, she also has brains. She was able to get a job at a plasma donation center as a phlebotomist. Luckily she didn't need any training, and had a very steady hand.

She now lives in her own apartment, only a few miles from her mother's house.

Tactile transmutation. When she comes into contact with matter, she has the power to change it's atomic make-up. This (thus far) works only on inoganic materials. So nothing living. She can change the state of matter from one simple pattern to another. Depending on how complicated the matter is, that determines how precise and stable the end result is. The more she understands something, the easier it is for her to transmute. She can transmute anything inorganic, but it is sometimes an imperfect transmutation at this stage of her development.

Hobbies and Interests:
She can sometimes be a tomboy, like things that a girl isn't suppose to like. In some people's opinion. She's an avid lover of anime and video games. She doesn't really have that much of a life, to be frank. She goes to work, comes home, and then goes to work. She can very solitary at times.

OOC Ons and Offs: Open to alot of things. We can just discuss, right?

Name:Jacob “Jake” “Wyld” Wyleman
Sex: Male
Relationship Status:single
Previous (Or current) Profession:college student


Hair: Short, Red
Eyes: deep Blue
Skin:fair, light tan
Weight:169 lbs
Other: Fre Freckles and beautymarks, a tail that may seem different from time to time.


Personality:tries to be laid back and easy going, evne when things may be rough. While he remains a college kid at heart, he still will help anyone he can, sometimes even cutting into his own time. He can be shy at times, but isn’t afraid to speak his mind.

Background: Growing up Jake was quite the nerd. Comic books and cartoons dominated his childhood until videogames came to every day life. He always wondered what kind of world would come about if it were filled with superpowered beings. That was all fantasy of course. It inspired him though to want to write and draw. This passion would have him look to the local university.

While he was chasing his passions, the university life was all kinds of crazy as he wasn't doing too well in his weaker subjects like math. This was complicated and not made any better by a hard money situation that forced him to take out a job on the side of classes. He tries to relax and hang out, but sometimes he simply doesn't have the time

Things started to get weird after he got this years flu vaccine. When he got home, He wasn't feeling too well so he just went to bed to try and sleep it off. When he woke up he felt something new just above his backside. Whatever it was felt really pressed and contained. Taking a feel, his eyes went wide as his hands slid down the length of it. In a panic he jumped up and looked in the mirror, he had a tail! In a panic he found himself transforming into a tabby cat and scurrying all over what was his dorm room. After almost half an hour the now-cat had managed to get himself to calm down and focusing on human, human body. Alas, he was himself again, but that damn tail was still there. No, this wasn't a dream. Now what the hell was he going to do?

Symptoms:Mammalian transformation – Jake can turn himself into mammalian creatures.

Hobbies and Interests: Drawing, Gaming, Writing, philosophy, sociology and psychology, Women [what college kid isn’t?]

OOC Ons and Offs:above all else, smarts. Glasses, a ladies legs and redheads will get his attention quickly

Name: Bennett ‘Ben’ J. Atwell
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Sex: Male
Age: 28
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Police Detective


Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Skin: Tan
Weight: 210 lbs
Height: 6’2”
Other: (physical defects/mutations, overall appearance) has several tattoos.


Bennett or ‘Ben’ as most of his colleagues and friends refer to him as is known for his humor in the workplace. He loves to play pranks and tries to keep things light and funny around the office. It is a dangerous, dark, and often serious profession that he works in, so he does his best to crack jokes to try and keep everyone’s spirits up. Ben enjoys not being the center of attention though, he is one of the most modest and humble people you will ever meet. He has built a solid reputation as a good man and a great friend, and doesn’t want to do anything to tarnish that image.

Ben can be an emotional guy from time to time, but he has difficulty displaying and controlling those emotions. A lot of what he sees out in the field gets to him, even if he doesn’t outwardly show it. He cares about people in general. He likes to think he is a romantic type of guy but he fails horribly in that department all the time. The guy has held down a relationship for two years, that is the longest in his entire life. He has had his fair share of girlfriends, but nothing has ever worked out. Ben remains hopeful and optimistic, despite the lack of success in the dating department.

He keeps his fears bottled up within. The guy is afraid of drowning even though he can swim really well. Being a police detective, you don’t make a lot of friends outside of the precinct you work at. Ben has made a lot of enemies in his day. He is stubborn to a point, but knows that when he is not right about something, to let it go and move on. He doesn’t hold grudges, but don’t mistake that for easy forgiveness. If you haven’t earned it, you won’t get it. The guy can usually be seen throughout the day with a genuine smile on his face. He loves his job.


Ben grew up in a large family with five other brothers and sisters. He was one of the middle children, but he got just as much love and attention as everyone else in the house. He grew up with a love of being outside. You would always find him climbing trees in the backyard or tossing around a football out in the front yard. He would often take the heat/punishment for bad things that his younger siblings had done. He looked out for all of his brothers and sisters. Ben was outspoken as a child, but not rebellious, he knew when it was time to have fun and when it was time to be a respectable young man.

When school came around, he excelled in a few academic studies and was less interested in others. He did prove however to be a great football player and graduated high school with a full scholarship to a university within the state. He took the opportunity to continue playing football, though he also made sure to take school a lot more seriously this time around. He wanted to become a detective like his grandfather had been. So he worked his butt off and graduated in four years with a degree in criminology and forensics. He took a few months off to enjoy life and then aggressively pursued the police academy. It wasn’t an easy road at all, but Ben managed to find himself on the police force.

It had been only a year into his time as an officer and he was already making a name for himself. He had a passion for the force that wasn’t seen in a lot of his other peers. Ben was often criticized and ridiculed for loving his job too much. He was seen as ‘the golden boy’ of the precinct, but it didn’t bother him. Despite the negative view of him in the beginning, he slowly began to win over his fellow peers with his uplifting attitude and popular humor. It had been another year and a half before Ben would get the opportunity to become a detective, and it was another half a year when he finally became one.

With the recent flu vaccine that he has received, Ben has no idea that his life is about to change forever.

I might try to tweak her hobbies and interests a bit to make her a bit more three dimensional , but I thought I'd go ahead and express my interest and put a quick character sheet up! Happy to take suggestions and change that which does not fit.


Name: Janelle “Elle” Emory
Sex: Female
Relationship Status:Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Lab rat, well researcher actually.


Hair: Dark brown
Eyes:Hazel (occasionally described as amber, green, or brown depending on mood and lighting)
Skin: Pale, no scars or tattoos
Weight: 139
Height: 5’8”


Personality: Scientist is more than just her job, its her life.  Elle is focused and meticulous in everything that she does. She has more colleagues than real friends.   When asked to describe her many people use the word "nice" though they have to think for a few seconds before settling on that vague descriptor. She's quiet and polite but a bit uneasy around people especially when pushed for information on herself.  It isn't that she has anything to hide (at least not prior to her vaccine debacle) but instead is just a simple lack of social skills.

Background: Janelle grew up in midwestern suburbia.  Seward Nebraska to be exact.  Her parents are still professors at Concordia University (chemistry and theoretical mathematics).  As their only child she had a comfortable if somewhat over disciplined upbringing. When she was ten she asked her parents for a pet, expecting a dog or a cat like most of her peers.  She got an ant farm.  Fascinating and educational, but not exactly something that she could bond with. That pretty much became the story of her life.  For her excitement meant church groups and study sessions and she has followed the rather safe and comfortable path that has always been laid out there for her. With a few scholarships and her parents help she maintained a high course load and managed to get her masters degree in Clinical Laboratory Sciences (M.S.) by age 23.

Instead of going straight on to get her PhD she took a position in a Pfizer lab to get some 'real life experience'.   Turns out that said experience was doing  immunotherapy clinical trials for their oncology division.  Not on humans of course, mice and rats mostly.  She is happy to work whatever shift needs to be covered and some people exploit her willingness to cover for them.  Most weeks she averages 60+ hours in the lab.  Her one bedroom condo is perfectly suited to her needs and Janelle is rather content with her life.

At least until her yearly review came.  Janelle tried to get out of the mandatory flu shot.  For all the work she does with them she has never been overly fond of needles, especially when they are stuck into her.  However she was unable to get the whole religious exclusion that they'd accepted when she was hired and so she sucked it up managing not to faint when she got the routine vaccination.   

Symptoms: Mammalian Manipulation.  Depending on where the story starts and where their 'power level' is supposed to be I kind of see it going like this. First signs were simple moments of empathy, it was increasingly hard for her to be in the lab around the animals.  Pain, fear, exhaustion, it all got a bit overwhelming.  All she wanted was for it to go away... and then it did. She could calm them, control them somewhat.  So far its only worked on small mammals, rats, ferrets ect though she hasn't tried to branch out to other animals.  Hell Janelle is still not entirely sure that she's not going crazy and all of this is in her head.

Hobbies and Interests: Working, reading, people watching, has a morbid fascination with really bad horror movies, swimming.

OOC Ons and Offs:
Though not a virgin she has been rather sheltered she doesn't know enough to know what she might like or dislike.  Over the course of this story I see her as getting a bit more... aggressive and experimental as she gets in touch with her 'wild side' and starts experiencing life instead of just studying it.  My O/O page covers hard limits.

Ethnicity: Caucasian
Sex: Male
Age: 25
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Industrial painter


Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Blue
Skin: Light
Weight: 200 pounds
Height: 6 feet
Other: Calvin is a very down to earth man. He dresses in jeans, plaid and leather jackets on and off the job.


Personality: Outdoorsy, he loves to camp and to gaze at stars. Joker, he loves to pull pranks and make jokes-he may actually not be that funny, but he still loves to laugh. Tactile learner, Calvin learns best by doing, he has excellent memory as well--he won't forget how to fix something if he's done it before.
Background: Calving was raised by a single mother who was a waitress. As a child he spent more time on the playground than studying. He loved the outdoors more than anything. He dropped out of high school when he was 17 to raise his baby girl Lucile who (he found out later) was not actually his child. He still visits her from time to time. Calvin loved his high school sweet heart enough to marry her, but he was betrayed by the thought of her cheating on him that they broke off their marriage. His sweetheart married Lucile's biological father and Calvin moved states to build a life on his own. He has been working in construction for two years now after quitting his job as a waiter.
Calvin was not the best student in school, he rarely turned in homework or did well on test, but his memory is good so he did well in history class as he only had to remember events that happened in history. Math was a lost cause on him. Outside of school Calvin enjoyed to build things with his hands out of wood. He made a cutting board for his mother, as well as a mirror stand. Calvin also built sets for the theater department for the high school.
Calvin enjoys his job in construction despite the minimal pay. He loves building things and seeing things once they are completed. Calvin most recently started bridge painting as it pays well even though it is a risky business.
Symptoms: Invisibility.

Athletic, Caren loves to jog for exercise as well as ride her bike, she enjoys the outside wind as she glides through the air like a bird.

She won many school prizes and scholarships in high school that her parents were shocked to find out she was going to be a waitress instead of attend university for free. Her parents have disowned her because of this, not wanting her to visit unless she decide to grow up and get a real job.

Name: Valerie "V" Anderson
Ethnicity: Japanese-American
Sex: Female
Age: 20
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Full-time college student and part-time waitress at a local bar.


Hair: Black with brown streak
Eyes: Brown honey eyes.
Skin: Fair
Weight: Slim; 120lbs
Height: 5'4"
Other: Valerie has poor eyesight. Most of the time she wears contacts but has been known to sport her glasses around.


Personality: Valerie is constantly questioning the world around her. She seeks truth in all its many forms. She continuously searches for what is real and what is just fantasy. She is a pessimist internally but an optimist outwardly. As long as you don't try too hard to get to know her she is a pretty easy going person. She has an anxiety of letting people get close to her. Get too close and you'll find one day she simply disappears from your life. Stay at arms length and everything is fine.

Morally she is gray. She believes in doing what is right by her own definition. If what she believes is right opposes the general consensus then the general consensus is wrong. According to her at least. She's not afraid of doing what's 'wrong' as long as the ends justifies the means.

Background: Valerie's childhood is uneventful. She was a child of poor circumstance who seemingly won the lottery. She was adopted by a middle aged caucasian couple when she was just a newborn. She knows nothing about her parents other than they were native to Japan, immigrated to America, and wasn't ready for a child. She's never had much interest in tracking them down. What benefit would it give her? Peace of mind? Peace seemed so short lived.

Valerie had always been smart. Her father would tell her she was too smart for her own good. She could never just accept something at face value. It lead to her getting into a fair bit of trouble when she was young. Her father was the center of her life. He doted over her like she was the most perfect child on earth. Her mother was the stern figure who constantly reprimanded Valerie.

At times Valerie could see a look in her mothers eyes that she could never explain and never understood. It wasn't until after her father died that the look finally came to blows. Her mother resented her. Her father had been sterile. That was why she had been adopted; an attempt to fill that gap they couldn't naturally fill. While the father saw Valeries as his prized daughter her mother saw Valerie as a reminder of their failures.

When she was fifteen her adopted father passed away of heart disease leaving Valerie and her mother alone to face the world. The two rarely spoke. Valeries threw herself completely into school while her mother found release from her pain in other avenues. They spent three long years like this.  When  Valerie turned 18 and graduated she moved out. Her father had set aside a trust fund for her that gave her enough to get herself on her feet. It included enough for college and some extra cushion for her to make it through her college years.

That is where we find her now. She attends college trying to find her place in the world. She doesn't know what she wants but she has always had this feeling she was meant for something more. She had one close friend who keeps her feet on the ground. The only person able to penetrate her social bubble. When she isn't busy with college she waits tables at a local bar. The pay is borderline terrible but the tips make up for it. When she find herself free she like to venture into the forest at twilight and admire nature's beauty.

Symptoms: Elemental - Darkness

Depending on the exact definition of what you intended I could see this power starting out as only minor manipulation of existing shadows/darkness. Things such as solidification of shadows into various things such as mild armor, weapons, or bindings. The stronger the ability gets the better the things she can create becomes and the more resistant to light they become. At later levels she could potentially manifest shadows in the light (albeit weaker).

Also having the ability to see in the dark or have slightly heightened senses while in the dark would make sense but I'm not sure how that would play out. 

Hobbies and Interests: Reading, writing, and questioning.

OOC Ons and Offs: Extremely open. Just ask before you plunge.

Now for a question. What is your definition as to what the abilities of an Elemental - Darkness character would be? I've toyed with it a fair bit in my past and seen it done in a variety of ways. I don't want to cross the line into other abilities so I'm looking to see what falls under that ability by this games definition and what doesn't.

Name: Amber Van Dale
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Sex: Female
Age: 20
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Full-time college student and part-time Sales Associate at a local electronics store


Hair: Long red hair with blonde highlights
Eyes: Sea green
Skin: Fair
Weight: 110
Height: 5' 10"


Personality: Despite Amber being a kind and easygoing person, she doesn't have a lot of friends, mainly due to her passiveness. She hates when people argue with one another and doesn't understand why people fight. Because of her passive nature, she tends to agree with other people and their view points no matter what. On top of this, Amber rarely speaks her mind and is completely content with having others make decisions for her. She is, by no means, a fighter but she will if she absolutely has to.

While at school or at work, she appears to lack any emotion, save for the slight smiles she sometimes musters up when something funny is said. It almost appears as though she is tired all of the time and spends most of her class time sleeping or spacing out. Despite this, she is an incredibly smart individual and is doing exceptionally well in all of her classes. The two things she is passionate about the most is her education and her taste in music and Amber thoroughly enjoys discussing anything related to them.

Background: Amber's childhood was, to her, a blur. A blur that she wished she remembered. Well, it wasn't that she forgot her younger days, it seemed that everyone else remembered a lot more about their childhood than she did. Amber was a single child, raised in a small suburb not far from the city. Her mother and father took care of her up until high school. she remembered one of her teachers, Mr. Rakozy. He was the biology teacher and, after class, he asked Amber to stay after. He wanted to tell her about possibly taking biology into consideration as a major, seeing as she did well in his class. "I will think about it." Amber said, or something along those lines. Anyways, it didn't matter now since she wasn't going into biology.

That was the only memory from high school she had? Well, there were other bits and pieces but, for some reason, that stuck out to her the most. Which, in some ways, was kind of pathetic. Even though Amber had made some friends her senior year, she never really did anything memorable. On the day of her graduation, her parents celebrated by taking her out to dinner. Then, they went home and Amber slept the rest of the night. There was no partying, no going over to another friends house. As far as Amber was concerned, it was just another day.

The following two to three weeks, Amber signed up for college even though she was unsure of what she wanted to do. Luckily, the college she applied to had a 'General Education' degree available, so Amber just put herself under that category until she could think of what she wanted to do. Saying her final goodbyes to her parents, she set off to the campus to begin her first day as a college student. Upon arriving, the RA's showed her to her room and advised her that her dorm mate had dropped out last minute. Not upset with the news, Amber was glad that she now had a two person room to herself. Currently, Amber lives on campus and works at a nearby electronics stores (think Best Buy) as a sales associate, letting life slowly pass her by.

Name: Jordan Grey A.K.A Mr.Grey
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Sex: Male
Age: Twenty Three
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Full-Time College Student ( Forensic psychology)


Hair: Sandy Blonde
Eyes: Steely Blue
Skin: Pale
Weight: One Hundred And Seventy Pounds
Height: Six Foot Three
Other: (physical defects/mutations, overall appearance


Personality: Mr.Grey is a mixture of well-spoken articulation and cerebral cunning. He's purposely abrasive and incredibly reluctant to release any information about himself. While some would classify this as pathological lying , Mr.Grey views as a defense tactic in a hostile world. Knowledge is power and he wouldn't want anyone to have any power over him now would he? If one were to spend enough time to crack through his fortified psychological defenses , they would fine that he is an interesting man in a world of tedious medians. While admittedly almost everyone sees themselves as the forlorn rebel who has disassociated themselves with the monotonous of mainstream society , Mr.Grey seems to have actually done it.

While some of his own colleagues in psychology would refer to this condition as Sociopathy , Mr.Grey prefers to think of it as freedom. Freedom from the average man's lofty notions of justice and equality. The Fundamental Core of Mr.Grey's belief is that as a single member of a large society , his actions however heinous have no real effect on society at large and thus he is free to behave as rudely or as obscenely as he wants. In layman's terms , Regardless if Mr.Grey chooses to be a Arsonist or a Philanthropist , the human race will continue to thrive er go the choice between good and evil is arbitrary at best.

Background: Born to Rebecca and Jonathon Grey  on May , 22 , 1993 in Chicago  , Illinois , Jordan Grey's early childhood was that of your average American male. His mother was a Law Professor at Loyola University and his father  was an environmental lawyer. Jordan's  first decade on the planet passed without much fanfare. He was an above average student with below average social skills. Not that atypical of your average nerd. He had a  somewhat difficult time making friends but an easy time getting A's. Jordan's second decade of existence would prove to be much more exciting then the first.

First , At the ripe of thirteen Jordan's parents decided that he needed to take up an after school activity and while the Grey's expected then studious son  to take up  one of the fine arts. Jordan himself choose take up Ice Hockey. His father in particular as disappointed in this choice  while he was not entirely against his son picking up a physical sport , he had wished his son would've taken up the game of his namesake instead of ice hockey. Jonathon himself was an astute basketball fan and obviously as Jordan's name would imply , a huge fan of the Chicago bulls. Despite his fathers interest in basketball however , Jordan much more enjoyed the physicality  of ice hockey then the athleticism of basketball.

In fact , His parents were somewhat shocked when their son choose the role of brutish defencemen   then that of a technically skilled forward. It was in that activity , that Jordan's spectacularly  aggressive nature reared it's enthralling head. At such a young age , Most of Jordan's teammates and opponents enjoyed the showmanship of Hockey. They enjoyed  victory and success while Jordan dismissed these as unnecessary distractions. Jordan was much more interested in body checking  his opponents  then scoring goals and making his parents proud. In Fact , His  High School Hockey Coach called him the dirtiest player he had seen in thirty years of coaching Junior Hockey.

Jordan's Psychical Play and violent decimation of his  High School's opponents quickly earned the fancy of   his female classmates. However their fancying seemed to die out  almost instantly after realizing that he was not  a muscle bound jock reveling  in the thrill  of victory but  was a cunning  deviant who enjoyed slamming his body into others with  unrelenting brutality. Outside of High School Sports , Jordan was an  excellent student though  he did frequently in the principal's office due to the fact that he found   most of his classes boring. In his sophomore , He was nominated for Class President but resigned from the race because in his own words " Class President comes with a significant amount of responsibility. I don't feel responsible for any of my classmates. Their Success is not my concern."

Upon High School Gradation , Jordan announced to his parents that he would be enrolling in college as they expected. He decided to take up Criminal Psychology as the study of maniacal deviants  was a truly encapsulating experience for him. In his short time at university  , Jordan  has made a name for himself as the top student in his field though some of the administrators are rather putt off by his seemingly unending obsession with the  antisocial  outlaws that make up his curriculum. Outside of study however , Jordan found a new hobby and obsession   , telepathically  eavesdropping on the mind's of his attractive female classmates. Of course it's a rather tame bout of deviance in all actuality but something about the violation of personal privacy just rouses his psyche.

Symptoms: Mind - Telepathy

Mr.Grey has recently gained the ability to hear the occasional though of another person within his own mind as the result of a flu shot given on campus. At the moment , it's a  slightly rare occurrence without much value as  he has no real control over the information revealed to him. Sometimes it's as emotionally deep as learning someone just broke up with their longtime girlfriend to something as mundane as finding out what someone had breakfast that morning.

Hobbies and Interests: Studying , Watching Hockey , Horror Movies ,  Internet Pornography  and Rap Music specifically Hometown Hero Kanye West.

Name: Kyle Edwards
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Sex: Male
Age: 24
Relationship Status: Single
Previous (Or current) Profession: Paramedic, Ex-USMC Recon (Medic)


Hair: Brown, medium length or short depending on time of year
Eyes: Hazel
Skin: Tanned
Weight: 170lbs
Height: 6'0"
Other: Various tattoos (see pics)


Personality: Kyle has changed quite a bit since he was a young man. He's generally somewhat quiet, courteous and respectful despite his somewhat rough exterior. His eyes have the look of someone who has 'seen some shit' as the expression goes, though he never talks about it. He tends to be firm in his convictions and his mind can be hard to change once it is made up as he's learned to trust his own skills and instincts over others, but he's generally willing to listen to input and adjust as necessary.

He's good at thinking on the fly and can adapt to most any situation thanks to his history of jobs. Kyle also tends to avoid crowded, loud places like bars or shopping malls during busy times and he has developed a strong dislike of violence.

Background: Kyle is the single child of a pair of fairly loving parents. Early in childhood he realized they didn't quite have all the things other families tended to have, but it wasn't until junior high that he figured out they were flat out poor. His father worked two jobs and his mother worked one job and kept the house in order, but even with all of that things were always tight. In Junior High he was singled out a bit because of his clothes and because he was a scrawny kid who never ate much (or well), and he quickly became a bit of an introvert.

In high school he remained fairly quiet and he never really filled out much. The only activities at school he really took part in was when he joined the track team and he did pretty well there though he was far from a star and without any real one on one training he never became a star. His grades had always been middle of the road even though he worked hard and did all his homework, and it became apparent during his senior year that his choices for college would be limited - and expensive in terms of loans and everything else if he went that route. The other option was following in his parents footsteps and finding a job in construction or retail type work.

But Kyle wanted something more, he wanted to get away from things and he wanted to go to college - one opportunity presented itself: Joining the military. He signed up as soon as he was 18 and was shipped off immediately after finishing high school. In Basic Training,  he really found himself. The constant structure and training regimes made him more confident, and finally getting real food with a strong caloric content, combined with all of the workouts, really filled his body out nicely. More than that, he quickly became part of the team and finally 'one of the guys', and his quiet, friendly nature served him well in making friends. He broke out of his shell, lost his virginity, and got some tattoos - he loved it!

He excelled at his training and ended up with the Marines 1st Recon battallion as a combat medic. Over the next three years he was deployed multiple times overseas, seeing work in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. The things he saw there changed him greatly and towards the end of his 4 year enlistment he ended up somewhat depressed and shaken. He left the military at the first opportunity and wasn't sure what to do for himself. The idea of sitting in classrooms all day seemed absolutely alien to him after everything he'd been through, so he looked elsewhere and got certified as a paramedic instead which was fairly quick thanks to his previous training and experience.

For the last two years, he's spent most of his days in an ambulance, tending to the city's sick and wounded. But everything for him was about to change...

Body - Reflexes -
SL1 - Instinctive reactions - These days, Kyle seems to react before he's even thought about it. His body just knows what to do and moves him and his reaction times are far faster than a normal person.

Hobbies and Interests:
Fitness/Weightlifting, nutrition, running, hiking, camping, video games, men

OOC Ons and Offs: Mostly similar to my own as far as Offs go, anything else is negotiable.
