Seth is a very self improving person, always needing to be better than the day before. He works well in groups, though needs to learn to follow orders with a bit more finesse.Background:
Seth was born to a middle class family, mom was a waitress at a local restaurant while dad was never really home as he drove trucks cross country. No siblings that he knew of, though there were jokes his mother would say about the 'other family' he keeps running to.
Around the age of twelve, Seth's powers manifested as he got into a fight with another child in the school yard. He could feel a swell of energy as the boys punches hit him, every time it felt as if the boy was losing power in his attacks. Seth unknowingly let loose the power as he pushed the boy away from him, knocking him through the crowd of students. No one ever talked with him again, not even his parents.
Seth no longer could stand being ignored and unwelcome, he left home at the age of thirteen wandering the streets and unaware of how to control his 'ability' which only caused him more and more trouble. He was found by Xavier wandering the streets near the school and after showing his ability and not being judged, Seth never looked back.
Since then, Seth is now able to control his ability and is attending collage in which this year he is a sophomore.
Major: Kinetic Absorption- The ability to take kinetic energy from an object or attacker in motion and apply it into: Speed, endurance or strength.
Minor: Super endurance- Able to withstand more than usual punishment from attacks, falls and projectiles
Minor: Kinetic Backlash- The ability to absorb the kinetic energy of an opponents energy or melee attack. Projecting this ability as a wave that has a range of 20 feet.Power Limitations:
Kinetic Absorption: Does not work for elemental abilities I.e. Storms powers would not be affected by this. The absorption rate is also size and weight based (I leave that to gms to say what is acceptable). Another limitation is that the object, enemy must be in front of him for its energy to be absorbed, but he can only do this from a maximum of 20 feet away.
Super endurance: While he is tough to put to the ground, it is not impossible. Bullets work on him best at close range if he cannot stop their kinetic energy or if he is preoccupied. Piercing weapons such as knives and arrows are the best bet when in comes to harming him, but better to be used from behind.
Kinetic Backlash: Backlash is the double edge sword of his abilities, this move can cripple him just as easily as it could someone else. If his body maintains at max absorption for more than one minute the energy is violently released causing him to slip into a unconscious state in which he could stay in for up to a few days. Hobbies and Interests:
Kendo, Toso Kune Do Karate and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. Playing bass and studding physics.
OOC Ons and Offs: Just ask.
