Alright, it looks like this is where we're submitting the characters... if I'm wrong, let me know and I'll be happy to re-post or PM.
Feel free to let me know if there's anything I should change to help out the GM or just for general reasons.
Name: Alex Rielly
Position at School: Student
Appearance: Alex is a handsome young man of average height and athletic build, with a wide, prize-winning smile... when he chooses to do so. Windswept auburn hair falls just to his shoulders, framing a youngish face that could pass for seventeen if it weren't for the tired look in his cobalt blue eyes. His clothing tends to match his over-all personality; He's almost always found in a worn, but comfortable pair of old jeans, a thin long sleeve shirt, old hiking boots and a pair of worn leather driving gloves.
History: Alex has never been good with people; whether it's his shy nature or the simple talent for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, fights and loneliness have plagued him most of his life. Even his parents had little interest in him, deigning that their job was done as long as he was housed, clothed, fed, educated and physically healthy. This complete disinterest ended when Alex entered his senior year, and his powers manifested during a fight with the head of the school football team. The fight was going badly, and Alex being the smaller of the two boys took an intense beating. As a last grab for pride Alex swung at the face of his attacker, expecting to leave nothing more than a bruise... And the jocks lower law was torn clean away from his head. Shocked and horrified, Alex fled as the other boy howled in pain, hiding out on the streets until he was calm enough to return home.
His homecoming was not a warm one; Both his parents and the police were waiting for him. His parents only stayed long enough to inform him that due to an impending lawsuit, he no longer had a place to live. The police attempted in vain to cuff him; any of them touching the bare skin of his arms came away with burns, the flesh melting easily from their hands. Alex took their confusion as an opportunity to escape, and ran to the streets with nothing but the clothes on his back.
Since then, he's lived on the streets, trying to learn to control his newfound powers. He recently heard of the Xavier institute, and has traveled there to see how others of his kind live.
Known powers: The ability to melt and mold flesh. Though he has yet to gain enough control to make anything other than grotesque alterations, he's seen the possibility to do good with his powers, possibly even as a healer. In most cases however, flesh simply melts on contact with his bare skin unless he applies his upmost concentration. His power only works on bare, flesh to flesh contact. (hence the gloves and long sleeves.)
Weaknesses: Alex's inherent shy personality combined with his dangerous power makes it very difficult for him to interact with people. Also, his power seems to be ineffective as a damaging agent on anyone with a healing factor, but he can (with great difficulty) direct the healing or reshaping of their flesh if the party is willing.
