-laughs- Yes, the whole family's Scottish to the bone. Again thank you, I really appreciate this.
Here's his twin:
None as of YetReal Name:
XavierPosition at the School:
High School Senior
Dark Blue GreenSkin:
Fair, freckles across her nose and cheeksWeight:
Mena stands at an average height and has a wiry build, with modest curves. Her attractiveness leans more to the healthy and youthful and she usually forgoes makeup, unless it’s a formal affair. Her face is heart shaped, with a rounded chin, sharp cheekbones and a straight nose. Her smile is slow to appear, but has an edge of mischief that makes her eyes dance.
Her fingers are slim, and her nails are usually bitten and unpolished, her finger tips and palms are calloused. She had a thin, vertical scar over her right brow, from a small accident in her teen hood. Her hair is a bright auburn and is wavy, usually edging towards tousled; it reaches her to the nape of her neck. Her eyes are a meditative dark blue green. Date Of Birth:
October 21, 1993Place Of Birth:
United Kingdom/United States
Mena is the calmer of the Firestone twins, possessing a steady common sense and a quieter nature. She has a dry wit and usually resorts to gentle teasing and trading faintly sarcastic barbs with family and friends. She loves to learn and discuss or debate with classmates, possessing a healthy intelligence and work ethic. She’s stubborn, leading to her having a difficulty of seeking out help and talking about things that upset her. She has a dogged determination to do well in life and that can make her forget to relax and kick back. Because of this she can get stressed out and anxious at times, turning to her art and violin when things get rough. She is devoted to her family and friends and while she quarrels with her brother she always is there to pull him out of trouble and considers him one of her best friends. Her nature is practical, kind, trustworthy and playful, enjoying jokes and liking to laugh and talk about all matters of things with the right person. Background:
[Three good paragraphs]
Mena was born in Stornoway, Scotland at an ungodly hour of the morning, a few hours before her brother came along with the sun’s rise. Growing up she was always the one after Tristan, either taking part of his mischief, pulling pranks on him and getting pranked in return or dragging him out of trouble (which they both laughed about later.)
Like her brother she began to notice strange things as she grew older. While sleeping she began to float above her bed and when angry or upset she’d hover an inch or two off of the ground. Once when waking up and finding herself floating high above her bed she panicked and crashed to the ground, getting the scar she has on her brow.
Things got worse when she was fourteen, one day she ran in terrified to her parents, she had been hearing voices when she was in the woods sketching. Worried, her parents began to wonder if she too was showing mutant powers and grew frightened as her symptoms grew worse, leading to headaches and insomnia on stormy, windy nights. Terrified at the idea of their daughter going mad they risked contacting some friends that were able to find help. A man named Lucien contacted the family and Mena went to a facility that he ran, designed to diagnose and assist with mutant powers. Close enough to home for her family to visit on holidays Mena was slowly able to control her gifts, finding that hearing voices was caused by her gifts with wind. She remained at the facility for four years, alternately relieved, eager to learn and lonely. When she ‘graduated’ from the class she heard about Xavier’s Institute and wanted a new start, moving there with her brother.
Mutant (Persuasive Voice, able to get people to listen to reason by manipulating her vocal tone)
Mutant(Eidetic Memory, ability to absorb information quickly and retain it easily)Other Relatives:
Tobias: Older Brother (Mutant: Intuitive Healing), Tristan: Twin brotherPowers:
Major: Gravity Manipulation: Mena is able to manipulate the gravitational pull around her body, increasing or decreasing the pull allows her to hover, walk and float in the air. She is able to manipulate gravity of small objects, letting them float around her in orbit as well.
Minor: Gravity Shield: Mena can shift gravity around herself to create a minor shield in the air, deflecting objects away from her.
Minor: Voices on the Wind: The tides of wind bring voices to Mena’s ears, allowing her to hear voices from far away, usually helps her sneak up on people, or avoid them.Power Limitations:
Major: Mena does have some issues changing her gravity, the feeling of being weightless for too long can make her feel queasy. It takes concentration for her to be able to do this, since she is still learning Mena tends to either get stuck in the air, or crash to the ground. She is only able to manipulate the gravity around herself, and small objects that weigh little (like her art supplies, too many at once can make her control shaky.) Since other people and heavy objects have different pulls it will take her some time to be able to shift the gravity pull of other people if she ever learns to do so.
Minor: So far this power was discovered utterly by accident (Mena deflected a paper airplane thrown at her during her time at the academy) the shield is weak as of now and she’s not sure as to how far it extends outside of her body.
Minor: There’s still a minor fear issue with hearing voices on the wind, she finds it hard to explain and if she’s in a crowd and there’s enough wind the gift gives her headaches. On windy days she can end up getting migraines, the stronger gusts seem to amplify the sounds.Hobbies and Interests:
Mena loves art; sketching is a favourite of hers and she also enjoys painting and trying her hand at sculpting. She has a strong eye for detail and a way for her to relax is to sit down and sketch what she sees. Sketching helps her to de-stress and she has the habit of sketching people that catch her eyes then dropping off the paper in front of them, making a quick exit.
Growing up she also loved the violin and was taught to play by her father, she still has the violin that he gave her and practices when she can. She also loves to read, is somewhat of a fantasy nerd and has an interest in Goth fashion, enjoys dancing and going to clubs when she can.
Mena also has a fear of water and is unable to swim due to an accident as a child.
