Character Name: Josephina "Joey" Grant
Character Alias: Ghost
Student or Teacher: Student
Sexuality: Inexperienced and uncertain (but OOC I can say she's bi)
Super Powers / Abilities:
Phase shifting - can make herself and objects out of phase with one another (intangible) resulting in objects and energy passing through each other. Can only affect herself and objects/people she is touching. Can be used to weaken parts of a structure making it vulnerable to damage or even collapsing under it's own weight.
Invisibility - really just an alternate effect of making herself out of phase with visible light.
Phase reinforce - by supporting the natural state of any material she can make it highly resistant to damage. As a new power she is yet to master it, and holding this new state for more than an instant before losing control.
Intangibility to matter and energy are mutually exclusive. So, she if attacked with an energy beam and physical attack at the same time she can only avoid one. This also applies to invisibility, so if she can walk through walls, then she can be seen, and if she wants to remain invisible, she is stuck unable to move through objects.
The speed and degree she can affect objects is determined by familiarity. For herself and the things she interacts with frequently, she can phase them instantly and instinctively. For a new object she has never encountered, it takes extra time and is mentally draining. For this reason, she has a limited wardrobe that she cycles through, so she knows she can take it with her without effort when she uses her powers.
She has trouble phasing living beings other than herself or even moving herself out of phase with other beings. So, while she can touch a wall and make it intangible to everyone, she couldn't grab one person and run through a wall with them leaving everyone else behind. Likewise, she can allows swords and fire to pass through her with no effect, there is little she can do about being punched in the face. She is certainly capable of doing these things, but would almost certainly be knocked unconscious by the strain of doing any of them for even a second.
Applying her powers to herself are on a hair trigger. This has saved her life in the past, but can lead to awkward situations and greatly limits her ability to have any sort of secret identity or work undercover as she might go invisible slip through the wall just because a car backfires.
Bio / History: She lived a rather unexceptional, middle-class, suburban life until everything changed the first time her powers manifested. On vacation with her family, they were involved in a massive highway pile-up. Dozens injured and her family killed, she drew attention, because not only was she uninjured save for some abrasions from rolling along the asphalt, she was also found naked a hundred yards away - her clothes wrapped around the seat belt when she had reacted in fear and phased herself to safety and flew out of the car when it slammed to a halt.
Confused and frightened, she was almost instantly swept away by some shadowy government types eager to "diagnose" her, but really more interested in what she was capable of. Hoping for an early recruit as a perfect thief and spy, they became disappointed as her inability to remain stealthy while gaining entry limited her usefulness without extensive training, and her resistance to their attempts eventually led to her being sent to <insert school here> until such a time as she would be more useful to them.
Even though she misses her parents, she thinks of herself as "twice abandoned" as since they died and the government dumped her off without even a real name to track them by, she has nothing to go back to outside the school. This makes her resistant to anyone who seems to represent "the system" or the rightful authorities, but very likely to latch onto anyone with a forceful personality who does not attempt to overtly assert control over her.
Personality: Shy to the point of skittishness. Jumpy and easily surprised (which can result in her going invisible or falling through her seat as a defense mechanism.) When she gets nervous, she will speak more quickly and her voice becomes more high pitched. This can result in a barely audible "Meep" when she is caught off guard and can't think of anything to say.
Plays the rebellious outsider as a way to avoid contact. The only group activity she takes part in is the track and field team. She was pressured by a guidance counselor to "take part" in something, and distance running seemed the best thing to fulfill that requirement, but not have to engage in teamwork. She was surprised at how well she performed relative to the students with no speed/time related powers. Within a month of joining, she had completed her first marathon and felt a sense of competition she did not get from schoolwork or the social games other kids played.
She sketches in class, but all of her drawings are very detailed renderings of familiar locations with all the people missing or removed. She is hesitant to show these to people as many find it creepy.
Basic Ons: Drawing, spying on people and learning secrets, large groups of people where she can blend in and be one of the crowd
Basic Offs: Attention, multiple conversations going on at once
Sexual Ons: strangely enough bondage, which (in her fantasies) involves being held in place by someone as she could easily escape almost any restraints. Dirty talk, which she has only experienced by eavesdropping on others.
Sexual Offs: Compliments. They make her self-conscious and uncomfortable.
