Boston Massachusetts, USA Citizenship:
Simon is best described as a nerd. He's quick witted, and while very good with words, anything outside of his normal element gets him tongue tied. He's kind, though tries to keep a neutral view because his job so often has him looking into the minds of others. While he loves talking about his work, any conversation will do. He's a talker, and loves to drone on.Background:
Simon was born to a wealthy political family in Boston. Raised with his father's constant talks of politics, it did not take long for him to decide he hated them. This turned into a silent form of rebellion for him, taking interest in things his father wanted nothing to do with, and putting his intellectual pursuits to anything other then the circus parade his father so wanted him to join in with.
By the time he reached puberty, Simon had managed to get himself ostracized by his father, yet not sent away for his brilliant mind. They instead locked him in private boarding schools so they did not have to look at him, and this is where he first began to develop his abilities. The nerd in him spoke clear when he first discovered the powers he held, and he likened them to comic books at first before he began to realize how serious the situation was. He couldn't control them, had no clue how, and nearly killed three of his friends during a normal game time when they were set off.
Knowing he couldn't keep it up, he sanctioned his family to take him home for schooling. They did such unhappily, and he used the solitude to work on his powers until he went off to college, managing somehow to keep them under wraps. Because of the study at his own pace time, he managed to finish high-school classes by age sixteen, learning that his gift of telepathy somehow increased his cognitive learning process. He took up study of the mind in college to help better come to terms with the power he possessed, and graduated top of his class at Harvard Medical.
It was at this point he was approached by Professor Xavier, and asked if he could use his gifts to help those troubled students at his school. Having gained inspiration from the influential man during his own self training, Simon agreed readily, and took his knowledge with him in hopes to help those who were not so fortunate as he.
Brother: Steven Ricahrds- Human Sister: Caroline Richards- Mutant?Powers:Major:
Kinetics: The first ability he discovered was the power to manipulate energy with his mind. He managed to harness it so he could move, or bludgeon things with what appears to be unseen force.Minor:
Telepathy: He learned while in solitude that he could sometimes hear others thoughts, and even implant urges they otherwise would not have. Since then he has manifested this power quite well, though it pales in comparison to professor Xavier.Power Limitations:Major:
His powers are limited on the pounds he lift, or pounds of pressure he can direct. So far he gauges it at a thousand pounds, spread out between no more then four targets. This power also weighs on his mind with the more force he uses, and it's been a cause of constant nose bleeds and blackouts during his life. If pushed too far, it could literally kill him.Minor:
His Telepathy is very small scale. He can only direct it to those he can see, and only then he can only pick up surface thoughts and implant suggestions that require some want on the subjects part to actually follow. If allowed to touch the person in question, he can delve deeper then this, but he's learned it holds the same risk his Kinetics do; and has passed out several times trying help a patient with it.Hobbies and Interests:
He's a comic book nerd, enjoys anything to do with reading, and even though he no longer plays he still tends to collect supplies for Tabletop gaming. He also knows that the key to a strong mind if a fit body, so he keeps an avid interest in exercise so he can maintain whole body health.
OOC Ons and Offs:
((Not sure how you'll see the powers, I think they mimic Jean Grey's too much. I tweaked them all I can manage so far, so hopefully the limitations and manifestations are enough to separate them. I await the GM's verdict. ^^"))
