Personality:Kevin is a man of a troubled past, but dealing with loss and corruption and hate before as shaped into the man he is today, A kind hearted, friendly individual who at times can seem to seclude and isolate himself from everyone else but yet still tries to great everyone he meets with his warm smile. He does sometimes find it hard to keep up his uplifting persona while dealing with the depression and sadness of loss and betray he has been through, sometimes he dreads to even wake up in the morning and push himself through a day when he feeling this way.

     

Background:
On the surface,Kevin James LaBire lived a great life of privilege, being the son of highly regarded Canadian government official with a ridiculous salary. He could have what ever needed wanted, it was never a problem, the only thing he truly wanted was the affection only a mother could give. His mother died when Kevin was only 6 but those memories were the best that he ever had.

Most of Kevins childhood was spent with the government hired nannies and tutors, having little interaction with his father left him craving attention that never seemed to come. After graduating from a private secondary school, Kevin went on to attend a highly regarded collage in the hopes of becoming the success that his father expected him to be. Though he fell short of gaining a collage diploma on the count of dropping out before his final year to get married to a stunning young woman whom he had known since childhood and even attended the same private school with. At this time in his life nothing else seemed to matter except his new life with Cassandra. But it would all come to a tragic end when Cassandra went to report on the condition of Canadian and NATO troops in Afghanistan and caught in the blast of an IED while riding with Canadian forces in a LAV 3.

This is when Kevins power first start to show them selves. Upon hearing the news of his wife's death, Kevin went into a state of rage, hatred, sadness and regret, causing his power to lash out uncontrollably. For the next two years he would keep this strange new ability a secret from the world as best as he could, until one morning while getting his mail, Kevins unstable self got the better of him and he unleashed a powerful blast of pure light in downtown Toronto, causing two people to go permanently blind and causing cars and other traffic to crash and hurt even more people.

Kevin was scared and shaking up after this, running from the police and super human authorities to the only place he could think of, his fathers estate. This would prove to be a fatal mistake,for his father already been informed about what had happend and had forseen his arrival and betrayed his only son be tipping off the last people that Kevin wanted to be involved with, Department H. Kevin was taken out be force by Epsilon troops and transported to the Dep H HQ. Where he would be forced to take part in one of the many Super human and mutant programs and experiments.

But life had a different plan for Kevin. As he was being transported via armored transport to Ottawa, they were intercepted and attacked, leaving the doors to the transport broken open and the troops knocked out. Kevin on the other hand, was completely unharmed. As he staggered out of the vehicle which had crashed in some no-name back road, he was approached by representatives from Xavier, who told him every thing about what and who he was and all about mutant kind and their struggle and giving a second chance helping flee to the safty of the School.






Mother:

Name:Kelsey LaBrie (Deceased)
Race:Mutant


Father:
   
Name: Marcus LaBrie
Race:Human

Other Relatives:

Sister:Unknown

Wife: Cassandra West/LaBrie (Deceased)


Powers:
Kevin had the ability to control and shape light and light sources around him. For example; he can bend light away from him and certain objects near so as to make them and himself invisible for a short amount of time. He can also use light that is absorbed around him to create great illuminations, some powerful enough to cause some harm to the human eye retina. He also has the ability to make himself and others glow, so flash lights of no use to Kevin when reading in the dark. ;)

Kevin also can create other types of light such as neon and black lights and even harmful UV rays and lasers with enough effort and focus


Power Limitations:   
Most of Kevins minor light bending tricks can be done with little effort but creating bright solar like flares can take up much of his energy, leaving exhausted and unable to call upon any more power of at least 12 hours.

He make himself and other objects invisible for around 7 - 10 minutes and they can't be moving.

Creating lethal UV rays and lasers can also cause harm to Kevins mind and body. If they are too powerful, the harm can be fatal
Hobbies and Interests:
Kevin enjoys spending time playing his piano and keyboards and also takes time practise his guitar skills. He is a big Melodic metal and music lover and loves the sounds of Dream Theater and Stratovarius.

Kevin also enjoys reading historic and fantasy novels and snowy evenings with his music and books.

Character:





Code-Name: Kitsune
Real Name: Yuki Hitsugia
Ethnicity: Japanese
Sex: Male
Age: 18
Relationship Status: Single
Team Affiliation: Xavier
Position at the School: High School Student, Senior

Appearance:

Hair: Waist length and fiery red
Eyes:Pink
Skin: Asian, but a little paler than usual
Weight: 8st
Height: 5ft 4ins
Other: Yuki always wears traditional Japanese Kimono, both male and female. He will occasionally be persuaded to wear a suit. Yuki is often mistaken for a female, and he always uses this to his advantage.
   
Date Of Birth:1st of April 1992
Place Of Birth: Kyoto, Japan
Citizenship: Japanese


Information:

Personality: Yuki is a very secretive young man, and it always seems like he knows something everyone else doesn't. He is courteous and polite, but you often feel that he is mocking you. However, he is ever the brilliant actor and can make a person feel like they are the centre of his universe; that he is loyal to them and only them and that he adores them unconditionally. More often than not, he is using them. He trusts no one and is a mischief maker.

Background: Yuki was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, having come from a long line of good, well bred families he wanted for nothing in terms of riches and good social upbringing. His ancestors had been traders in Kimono and some had run Geisha houses, but most were old money, and that combination made his life very comfortable indeed. Unfortunately, there was a lot expected of him, and he was a brat prince. He much preferred to live the high life and not have to do any of the work than follow in his father's footsteps and learn how to run a business. He even scorned the beautiful women from good families whom is mother wished him to marry.

Scandal struck the family when Yuki was caught in a heated embrace with a young man. His father tried to persuade Yuki that it was just a phase, that it was just him lashing out and trying to rebel against the life they had planned out for him. And that was when it happened. The chair his father was sat upon suddenly caught fire without warning. The flames rushed through the room as if it were all dry kindling, and his parents looked on in horror as their son was coated in the flames. It was as if the fire was sucked into their son, and he was a changed man. His once inky black hair was not fiery red and his eyes glowed like the son. He raised one hand and with a little smile directed the flames that were already licking around the room at his parents. 

Yuki was found unconscious in the middle of the burnt out house, not even his clothing had been touched by the flames. He was the only survivor. Terrifed by what he had done, he ran from the police and headed straight for the airport. He knew more than enough about mutants to know the rumour of a school in America that trained young mutants and taught them how to use their powers. He would only go by the name Kitsune, and only the head of the school would know his real name and what he had done.

Mother:

Name: Aiyako Hitsugia
Race: Human

Father:
   
Name: Jin Hitsugia
Race: Human

Other Relatives: N/A


Powers: Yuki can create fire. Fire cannot harm him. He is not very strong, but he is resilient. He has heightened agility and is able to get himself out of sticky situations.



Power Limitations: His powers take a lot out of him. Creating fire and using his superior agility too often can cause him to become exhausted very quickly and has been known to pass out. In regards to his resilience, he becomes numb so he cannot tell when great damage has been done to him.



Hobbies and Interests: Dancing, reading, music.


OOC Ons and Offs:   Scat, water sports, submissive men, excessive blood play.

Code-Name: Witch
Real Name: Derek Harrington
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Sex:
Male/Female (can switch gender)
Age: 18
Relationship Status:
Single
Team Affiliation: Xavier
Position at the School: High School Student, Senior

Appearance:


Male form
 

Female form

Hair: short blond hair as a male, waist-long smooth blond hair as a female
Eyes: green
Skin: Fair
Weight: 60 Kg
Height: 1,72 m
Other: Derek usually wears fine college clothes.
   
Date Of Birth:12st of July 1992
Place Of Birth: Leicester, U.K.
Citizenship: British

Information:

Personality: Derek is often shy and lonely, and he's a brilliant student because he actually likes studying. He often feels a freak even among mutants, due to his strange powers.

Background: Derek was born from a respectable and quite wealthy U.K. family. His mother and sister had always been strong-willed and his mother was the real head of the family, while his father was a kind and caring man. Tragedy struck the family when he was sixteen: his seventeen years-old sister and his father died in a car accident. His mother was terribly struck by this and never recovered completely.
When Derek turned 18, his mother called him and told him their family had a secret. They were witches, powers handed out from mother to daughter for generations, in the form of a five-pointed artifact said to come from millennia ago. Only those of their blood could access these powers, and only females. This has always been thought as a kind of "magic", but actually the recent discovery of mutants made her think they could be mutants too. Anyway, now that his sister was dead, Derek was the only one of their blood remaining, and by ancient tradition he should take up the family's powers. However, since all witches are female, he found out the only way he had to access those powers was to turn female himself, even if for a short time.
In the following months he developed a kind if love/hathred for his powers, fascinated by what he could do but unsettled by their price. His mother insisted that he went to Xavier's school, so he could find a place to fit in and to develop his new powers.

Mother:

Name:
Catherine Redwall
Race: Likely mutant

Father:
   
Name: Sean Harrington
Race: Human

Other Relatives: sister (dead) Jane Harrington

Powers: Derek can switch from male to female form at will. He can attain a variety of effects through what appears to be "magic" (he actually focuses inner strength through rituals).
By now (other than switching forms, which is actually one of his limitations) he knows how to do three things:
1) He can raise a force shield around him for protection
2) He can shoot an energy arrow (is it OK or is it too close to Cyclope's ability? As an alternative, Derek could be able to morph other people.)
3) He can conjure up small objects if he has touched them and can picture their exact location (meaning that if somebody moved them, he can't do it,)

Power Limitations: Derek's powers are focused by a family charm, a star-shaped pendant worn as a necklace. In order to access his powers, Derek must wear it and be in his female form, and every time he uses them he "charges up" and has to remain female for several hours. Just like spellcasters from the tradition, Derek has to use formulas and rituals (they work by focusing and directing his inner energy). The greater the effect, the longer and more complex the needed ritual. Derek has to go through long dusty esoteric books in order to learn how to perform a "spell". Simple, straightforward effects (such as energy beams and the shield) can be performed quickly even in a fight, but other complex effects need long preparations and can have horrible effects if mistakes are made.

Hobbies and Interests: Music, reading.

OOC likes: romance, discovery of my feminine side, lesbian sex.
           dislikes: heavy bondage or pain, S&M, bodily waste.

The biography & other details (and the male to female trans) I've no problem with. However the spellcasting being limited only by imagination basically I'll have to discuss with the two wonderful woman that help to approve the applications.

Well that's very generic: I don't know if there's some almighty DM around, but Derek basically doesn't know what he can or can't do. Feel free to put limitations on him. Otherwise, I can change it a little...

The part I like the most is the MtF thing. I love the idea of the spellcaster in a Harry Potter-like fashion.
I like the idea of Derek knowing that in theory he could tap a huge amount of power, but that it would require such a high degree of control and planning that really he can't use it.
I also like the idea of him messing up at a certain point and his powers going wild, unleashing something really scary (you know, a bit like Jean Grey in the movies, when she goes completely wild...)

The three of us, myself, Kendra, and Secretwriter, are the ones that control the game itself, application approval included in this. As for limitations, the easiest way to handle this I think is to put a set listing of "Known Spells" in his bio. Keep it limited to three spells at the moment, as each character is given one major and two minor powers when it comes to their mutation. The transformation itself, list that as the limitation to his mutation.

That way you still get the spellcasting & the transformation to keep it within the ruleset, and it allows for room for expansion when it comes to learning new spells (When it comes time in the game for everyone to receive power upgrades).

What do you think?
