Vitals

Name: Daniel LaFlame / Roach / Samsara
Gender: Male
Age: 47

Alignment: Hero
Role: Head hero instructor

Appearance:
Image

Image


Abilities

Equipment: Daniel wears medium strength body armor under his outfit, in addition to his mask. The mask allows for infrared vision in addition to night vision, and the armor is best used for absorbing ranged attacks and ballistics. He uses a combination of a machete and a high grade battle rifle in combat, as well as power dampening chemicals.

Abilities: Daniel is able to create multiple copies of himself, which can move independently from another and will each act as their own person with a shared consciousness. The consciousness does not die when one body dies, even though Daniel doesn't need to focus on every body at the same time. It's also impossible to tell if there's other bodies out there, meaning Daniel is rarely actually killed despite many of his alternate bodies being killed. When duplicating, the clones will have the same items as the original bodies. A duplicate can also create another duplicate, but the more that currently exist, the more energy needs to be expended to make more, making a soft limit on how many can exist at once.

Personal

Personality: Less of a classic hero and more of a pragmatic antihero that has survived on wits rather than overwhelming strength or great virtue and popularity, Daniel is cautious and acts on instinct, more of a do as I do and not as I say leader than a typical one. Still, he's very dedicated to keeping his team members alive, similarly to Fantom.

Short Bio: Originally from Calgary, Daniel LaFlame grew to worldwide fame as the former Number Three leader in the Order of Saints, the largest hero organization in the world at its time. LaFlame traveled from Calgary to Toronto, London, New York, Paris, and spent time in other cities too, traveling often to take on the biggest threats that the villains of the world had to offer. It's said that LaFlame, like the other heroes at the top of the Saints, saved the world multiple times from various threats ranging from nuclear terrorism to Earth destroying experiments. And unlike some of the others that fell in the pursuit of this, LaFlame was just too hard to kill and survived rivalries with some of the greatest villains.

He outlasted them too, once the Commission was given more authorities by the nations of the world and began coming down hard on both criminals and the heroes that fought them. When the Commission grew in their activities, LaFlame left the Order of Saints before they were officially forced underground, and took up the identity of Samsara, donning a differently painted mask and hand picking a team of former Saints and SUAHT members that would plainly become known as Unity. Unity was not based in one place but struck wherever there were high level targets, taking the fight to the Commission with a heavily aggressive and highly risky style. But one by one, Unity members were picked off by Commission agents and spies, and LaFlame was forced to enter hiding in Britain once the group folded under the external pressure. Not long later, after failing his members, he was approached by Specter, and continued the fight instead of hanging up the mask and living a normal life.

Vitals

Name: Ruby Wilson / Pysch
Gender: Female
Age: 28

Alignment: Hero
Role: Instructor/Therapist

Appearance:
Image


Abilities

Equipment: Ruby usually has a pistol strapped to her leg or arm at most times. Sometimes she also has small explosive devices there.

Abilities: Ruby's skillset is based around information gathering. She's a powerful telepath that can read the minds of others and speak to them telepathically, but she also has the ability to store any information in her mind after discovering it. This applies to things that she's read, things that she learns through telepathy, or through other people. She doesn't forget info and she'll remember every detail without having to try. Areas with large amounts of people are harder to read others in, however.

Personal

Personality: Ruby is the type of person that you might think of as a project manager. On top of everything, bubbly and ready to motivate others, and completely tireless and never quitting. She has a quieter side when she's by herself, but that rarely shows...

Short Bio: Nobody is really sure where Wilson came from, but she's believed to be American and from a wealthy background. Her powers are easy to hide, so it's also not known how they were discovered, but it's generally accepted that she worked as a humanitarian aid worker in war torn Syria for a time before going off of the radar and resurfacing as a member of underground superhero group X Unit. She joined Specter after this group went defunct, and because of her powers, she was given the unique role of managing personnel and helping students with their personal problems in addition to their adjustment to the strange surroundings at the Academy.

Name: Omega Horizon Corp.

Alignment: Authorities.

Membership: 400,000 Employees worldwide

Areas of Operation: US, Mexico, Brazil, England, Germany, Spain, Russia, South Africa, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, and Japan.

Equipment Level:They have a readily available paramilitary group which they give mass funding to train and equip with weapons capable of subduing and even killing metahumans. Called the Collection and Special Combat Brigade, this mercenary group is armed with the most high end gear that money can afford. They have vehicles such as surplus military combat vehicles and helicopters as well as armored trucks they use to transport subjects in, as well as Cybernetic Combat Units, which are typically used against metahumans that prove to be too difficult for regular humans to fight. They have struck deals with foreign government and international organizations which allow them to serve in the fight against Metahumans and to employ high end weaponry equal of other countries military. By 2024, the CSCB has made use of new experimental and prototype weaponry as well as vehicle systems in the fight against metahuman insurrectionist around the world.

Bio: In 1991 when the Soviet Union collapsed, West German entrepreneur Karl Schünemann feared the end of the Cold War would bring down his weapons manufacturing businesses, much to his surprise the post Soviet Union turned out to be more profitable than he believed it would be. Schünemann's company, Ol Reckor sold weapons to multiple sides in multiples wars, from the Chechnyan war and Yugoslavian confleict to the wars in Africa and Latin America. However in 2004 the company lost Schünemann to a plane crash and his son Claus inherited the company, he aimed to move the company forward from just making weapons into expanding to other new horizons ahead. Claus made deals with multiple pharmaceutical companies as well as genetic research corporations in order to expand business practices in this new world. He also aimed to get in the market of advance robotics, hoping for the company to take risks that would pay off in the future.

Claus's ventures into all of these fields payed off as the company, now renamed Omega Horizon was able to secure weapon deals with several nations around the globe including the USA for new medical technology, biometric enhancements and even prototype robotics for use in the military. By 2011 Omega Horizon became a multi billionaire weapons manufacturer and biological research corporation, among other business that acted as subsidiaries such as Roblic Alpha, the main builder of Cybernetic Combat Units, and Trans Gen, the main biological research department. A subsidiary for military gear building was also

By 2016, the Corporation had been seeking for a new weapon that would put it first on the market, metahumans served as the main interest for developing a new weapon that everyone would want. With the goal of using metahumans to create actual super soldiers, Omega Horizon created the Collection and Special Combat Brigade, their own private army supplied by themselves that began to hunt down several metahumans whose genes would be use to create biomechanical super soldiers. With several captured metahumans in their cells, Omega Horizon began to spy on several people around the world, each that would fit a specific genetic code that aligned with any of the captured metahumans. The CSCB then began kidnapping people fitting the criteria and quickly the Trans Gen labs were filled with human subjects that would become the first generation of a new bred of artificially enhanced man made metahuman soldiers that would be sold to the highest bidders. In 2018, the Corporation had several successes such as creating some proto edhanced metahuman soldiers, though some proved to be unstable and tried to go rogue, the CSCB proved to be an efficient force and managed to recapture most assets.

By the next decade, in 2024, Omega Horizon has become involved in the fight against rogue metahumans around the globe. Assisting countries around the world with the capture and elimination of potential metahuman threats, Omega Horizon has risen from a simple weapons manufacturer to a worldwide enterprise and PMC that has become a serious threat to any metahuman, both hero and villain.

VILLAINS FOR THE PEOPLE


Name: Aeronauts

Alignment: Villainy, Robin Hood-style pursuit of equality

Membership: 9 remaining, but at height approached 400. The current members are: Lightning Rod (electrokinetic, drains power and unleashes it at any time), Rainmaker, (atmospheric aquakinetic capable of generating omnidirectional rain hard enough to break skin), The Storm (capable of turning into a living storm that can envelop enemies, can be fed in size by existing weather systems), New York Minute (speedster, can reach up to 90 mph, internal GPS, suffers no effects from turning, etc.), Edison (inventor, enhanced creativity and building skill, can make anything out of anything within reason), Mr. Furious (rage-based superstrength, durability, martial arts skill, and low-flying ability), Thunderclap (sonokinetic, capable of localized generation or stopping of sound vibration, can hear everything with perfect clarity within an unobstructed 3 mile radius), Wallet (has access to a pocket dimension he is capable of accessing any time with infinite size that can store anything, living things cannot enter), Entry (able to walk through walls of any material, however if there is electricity being conducted inside he will be electrocuted).

Areas of Operation: Chicago, but at height all over America east of the Rockies.

Equipment Level: Tech of medium age, considering its been years since they were able to adequately fund themselves to the level they desired. A recent extreme drop in membership following the Aeolus Purge last year has freed up much of the equipment and technology previously in use by other members, allowing the current nine their pick. Also due to the fact that they are one of the few groups that do not prey on the poor, they find themselves assisted by a great many families they have helped over the years, mainly concentrated in Chicago but also across the Midwest and East Coast.

Bio: Mark Ryder, aka Aeolus, was a college student in 1992 when he was first exposed to the ideals of socialism. America was a divided place at the time, and Mark saw inequality as the root of much of that. Although many others who shared his beliefs at this time ended up radicalized, leaving normal society and pushing a communist agenda at all times, Mark remained a charismatic, good-looking face for the moderate introduction of socialism. In 1993, Mark's powers manifested after an Amtrak crash in the heart of Missouri. A tornado was bearing down on the tracks and would have killed dozens if not for the newly-christened Aeolus. Realizing his new powers allowed him to be a force for good, Aeolus engaged in a campaign called Superiors for Equality, promoting economic and social redressment.

At the height of this campaign over 7,000 Superiors were involved, preaching nonviolence, charity, and racial and economic equality. However, as time went on, the ever-restless Aeolus became frustrated at governments' disregarding of the Superior's messages. Some members of Superiors for Equality began carrying out criminal protests against government administration and due to Aeolus' tacit support of them, he was forced to step down as its President. The idea of forming a Superteam had been in Mark's head for several years, ever since his manifestation. Uniting with several friends and close confidants that were diehard members of Superiors for Equality, he founded the Aeronauts, a vigilante team dedicated to assisting the poor and hungry across the Midwest.

As time went on and Superiors became discriminated against, Aeolus and the Aeronauts became more and more radical in their beliefs on how equality should be achieved. They reasoned that if they were blanket-painted as criminals, they would embrace the image and do good with it, abandoning their vigilante pretenses and becoming, in the eyes of the law, a villain team. In reality, they were a Robin Hood-style robbery operation, giving the proceeds from stolen art and valuables to charities or individual members of local impoverished communities, although they did keep a handsome bit of it for themselves. The Aeronauts at their height possessed 388 permanent registered members across the Midwest and East Coast, most concentrated in Tornado Alley and Florida. During storm recovery periods, their membership swelled into the thousands as they had the best organizational capability when it came to storm response.

Aeolus was responsible for shifting the course of over 26 hurricanes over 7 years. He remained undisputed leader despite many personnel and purpose changes of the Aeronauts. Mark was arguably the most powerful aerokinetic ever, capable of extreme localized air manipulation (creating his daughter's compressed-air dagger and his trademark compressed-air armor and weaponry, as well as being able to create and maintain vacuums and wind walls at will, with his powers effects lasting permanently unless he wilfully stopped them) as well as air manipulation on a grand scale (creating superstorms, deflecting hurricanes, dissipating tornadoes). With his death, however, the Aeronauts, already having fallen on hard times, thinned rapidly from their 88 remaining members to just 9, all of which were part of the original 20 Aeronauts.

Vitals

Name: Taryn Lynard
Gender: Female
Age: 16

Alignment: Neutral

Build: Very tall at exactly 2 metres, very thin yet slightly muscular.
Appearance:
Image


Abilities

Equipment:
- A titanium baton
- She usually has a knife or two hidden in her afro

Primary Ability:
Portals - She is able to create portals into almost anything, essentially tearing small holes in the fabric of space, time, and even reality. Every time something happens, a new version of reality is created, giving her almost unlimited options in places to go. However, when she is going somewhere not in our current timeline or not in the present, she doesn't have access to the entire world but merely a small piece of it, like a single house or a small area of land. She can take things out of these, but when they are from the future or alternate realities they quickly begin to disappear (the further in the future the faster they disappear) and when they are from the past they begin to turn into rust. She can have several portals open at once and close them at will, but all portals she creates close when she loses consciousness, be it from sleep or more nefarious means.

Other Abilities:
Clairvoyance - A very weak form of clairvoyance, it simply gives her a very brief overview of the entire planet at once, able to sense where she would need to open a portal to get a certain thing. However, this works best with general objects (a rose, a cup, a ladder) rather than specific objects (the villain's evil plans, a person). She can also know where anyone is when they say her name, and can listen for three seconds afterwards to whatever they say.

Space Warping - Similar to her portals, while she is able to tear holes in space she can also fold it in on itself, creating small bubbles of space. Complex organic matter like animals and people get in the way and act as anchors to space, so she would only be able to fold space and create a pocket the size of a brick if there was a room full of people close to her whereas she could potentially hide an entire (small) island if it was uninhabited. The more people that enter the fold the harder it is to keep it in place. She also cannot create portals to anywhere outside of the fold when she is inside of it. She can pin folds to make them last even when she is not inside of them, but this degrades faster the longer it is there. She could create a pocket to hide a pencil that might last centuries, but hiding a car might last a week and hiding a house might last a few hours. She also cannot make too many folds close together, because she runs out of space to fold and simply tears it to make a portal. Folds cannot move unless she is inside of them, so she could not, for example, always have a knife hidden nearby and bring it along with her inside of a fold.

Details

Nationality: American
Hometown: New York City, NY
Sexuality: Straight

Skills: She is skilled in using her baton, knows bits and pieces of martial arts that suit her, and can whistle quite well.
Flaws: Unskilled in the use of firearms and the like, cannot handle pain well, her clairvoyance can get distracting at times when people say her name a lot

Personal

Personality: She had no set personality, flitting between whatever suits her mood at the time.

Biography: (Should be at least two paragraphs.)

Yes, both of those things are fine. Keep in mind that most superpowered criminal groups in the States will be very small, however, and will be ruthlessly hunted down by authorities.

Vitals

Name: Samantha Watts (Nicknames include Sami, Sparky, or Sparks)|Negawatt
Gender: Female
Age: 18

Alignment: Unaffiliated

Build: Medium|Well Toned
Appearance:
Image


Abilities

Equipment:
Shock Gauntlets: Home made gloves that help channel and direct her electrical abilities, each finger has a built in adapter to help her absorb electricity, though too much use and she risks shorting them out.
Powerpack: A set of two car batteries she's fashioned into a make shift powerpack to help augment her abilities as well as to help her store excess electrical energy, while she's been able to streamline many of it's functions, it's still heavy as hell as it's two car batteries strapped together with a multitude of wiring and insulating materials.

Primary Ability:
Electrical Conductor: Sami has the unnatural ability to channel electrical energy into devastating physical and short ranged attacks, provided she's had enough time to charge.

Other Abilities:
Plug-In: Sami will search any sources of electrical and "plug" into it by jamming her fist into any socket or transformer and absorbing the resulting Electrical flow. It also gives her a bad case of the frizzies, shame she can't carry a can of hairspray.

Paralyzing Strike: Due to her father being former IDF, Sami was essentially forced to learn and master various forms of martial arts including Krav Maga, combine this with her electrical discharge, anyone who crosses her is in for a rather en-lightning experience.

Surge: Sami has the power to siphon off store electrical energy that she can harness to great powerful electrical pulses, essentially turning her into a walking, talking, localized EMP/Electro-Shock Bomb. Though this is mainly a passive build and last resort card as it has the unfortunate effect of leaving Sami "fried" for at least 15 minutes.

Details

Nationality: American
Hometown: Stedson, Ohio
Sexuality: Bi

Skills: Sami is a decent problem solver, when it comes to school work. Her High Functioning Autism gives her a better grasp of concepts such as chemistry, trig, physics, or other subjects involving numbers or math. She's also found that coding and electrical engineering seems to come naturally to her (I wonder why).
Flaws: Sami is short tempered and when she was little, her father used to say her emotions were that of a bolt of lightning on a clear day. While she's developed a somewhat thick skin, if someone pushes her too far, she'll come back at them swinging both fists and hurling lightning bolts until she feels safe.

Personal

Personality: A shy and somewhat unsociable person, Sami prefers to keep to herself, not out of fear of her powers, but out of fear of other people. Due to years of bullying and abuse at the hands of her peers, Sami's social skills have been rather blunted as she's used to defending herself from taunts and jeers, she never really learned how to take complements or criticism and will take any attempt to correct any action as a personal attack on herself, though she tries to be less combative and defensive in her responses. However, should someone actually succeed and manage to get Sami out of her shell, they'll find a rather hyperactive individual who is more than happy to put her life on the line for anyone she considers friend or family.

Biography: Born in the small town of Stedson, Ohio, Samantha Watts is the only daughter out of a family of 6, including three boys of various ages, and as a result, she grew up more of a tomboy than anything. Her father, a former member of the IDF, was more than happy to indulge her daughter's boyish tendencies, though her mother, a retired high school teacher, was more concerned with her behavior, finding her to be overly impulsive and too quick to anger when things didn't go her way. However, these proved to be the least of the family's problems as Sami seemed to have a dangerous fascination with electrical outlets and plugs. On top of that, things started randomly shutting off whenever she was around and wouldn't turn back on until she left the room, but they mostly chalked that up to coincidence, at least at first. Concerned, her parents took her to the local hospital to have her tested for developmental disorders.

Even though her tests game back inconclusive, thanks in no small part to the computers randomly shutting down, her doctor recommended she be taken to a specialist and tested for Autism. Unfortunately, the family had to go all the way to the other side of the state to do so, but by the end of the trip, they understood what was going on with Sami, at least from a behavioral standpoint. She ended up diagnosed with both Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and High Function Autism before she entered the third grade. This was also about the same time her powers began developing as well, starting out with her sticking a fork inside an electrical outlet at school and laughing because "it felt funny" before she learned that she could store the electricity she gained form the outlets and use it to shock people. Multiple suspensions and an expulsion threat followed her though out her time in the fourth and fifth grades and she would have been expelled completely had her parents not pulled her out and home schooled her for her entire middle school career.

This proved to be more of a problem than a solution as her time at home stunted her social development as the only ones she had to interact with were her parents and her brothers. She couldn't understand other people, nor did she want to as she became the target of harassment and bullying by the several of the cliques. Soon, she began to grow distant from everyone else, preferring to sit by herself and keep away from others, even her own family. And as the bullying worsened, Sami found that her powers became easier to harness and control, and she began using them on those her bullies.

It started out as harmless, the popular girls who taunted Sami because of her cloths, her family or her tomboyish attitudes found themselves constantly having to charge their phones in order to stay connected to twitter, facebook, and snapchat. The boys who called her names found themselves randomly getting shocked even if there was no one around them. And for a time, she felt better, she felt she had found a way to vent her frustration at her detractors and found that she was starting to gain control. However, things began to escalate. People began calling her a freak and rumors began spreading that she was a Superior, which made her more socially isolated. Soon, death threats, viscous rumors, and theft of her stuff began piling up until one day, she snapped.

She didn't know what caused the outburst, but one day she found herself standing in the middle of the hallway, shaking uncontrollably with smoke rising off her skin and cloths. Around her, almost everyone in the hallway was lying in heaps, their faces contorted in a state of agony or shock. Anyone not in the hallway found their electronics going dead, even if they were at a full charge, and their hair stood up as if the air had suddenly been filled with static. Days after the incident, Sami found herself expelled from school, though she counted herself lucky she wasn't charged with anything, despite parents of those who tormented her demanding she be locked up for good. Her own parents weren't even sure what to do, and slowly, Sami found herself drifting away from everyone she knew, including her family. Eventually, she decided it was best if she left her small town and ran away, hoping to find someplace where she fit in.

Vitals

Name: Corentina-Elouana Koaduuiueg
Gender: Female
Age: 21

Alignment: Hero, although her heroïsm differs from that of some others

Build: 5’10”/178cm and 139lbs/63kg
Appearance:

Abilities

Equipment: N/A

Primary Ability: “One with Nature” - If Mother Nature had a daughter, Elouana would be it. The great forces of nature are at her disposal, quite simply, be it storm, landslide, or a tree ripping up from the earth, although Elouana is most in her element in forests. With a strong gust of wind in a forest, she can seemingly blow away in a swarm of leaves, and appear nearby, as if she were a phantom within it. With enough concentration, she can form a great storm, grow a small forest in a fraction of the time, or even form a true chasm in the earth, although the last causes her terrible pain. However, this power has its limits—very strict ones at that. Within city limits, where the environment is manufactured by man, she can summon nothing, and control little. The only natural weapons that can affect a city are those she can bring from outside, and even those grow weak. If the environment is made by man, and not by Mother Nature, she wields no power over it. Her deep connections to nature are further emphasised by her reacting to pollution much more acutely than almost any other person, to the point where she can feel veritable physical pain from it, ranging from a coughing fit in the case of a car’s exhaust, to intense, debilitating coughing in the line of industrial smoke. By her own theorisation, the air within a coal mine could nearly kill her on contact. Likewise, over ground depleted by poor farming, Elouana can identify a distinct weak sensation within herself. Anywhere where the environment is abused enough, Elouana can physically feel it in one way or another.

Other Abilities: Being one with nature, Elouana can also communicate with creatures that are able, being able to speak with and understand most living things as if they were humans.

Details

Nationality: French
Hometown: Huelgoat
Sexuality: Bisexual

Skills: In most respects, Elouana has decent control over her emotions, and, with exception of when she is directly personal insulted, doesn’t often get into much conflict with others. She is also incredibly agile, particularly in her element, and has a strong sense of literal direction, almost as if she were at heart a bird ready to migrate.
Flaws: Elouana butts heads with people who are rather controlling, and dislikes the arrogant, as her belief is that all are subordinate to the earth itself, including her. Nature is very much a part of her. As such, she often treats insults or negative statements towards the natural world rather personally, and always has a speech on the awesomeness of nature prepared for such instances.

Personal

Personality: Elouana, much like the Huelgoat forest in which she spent many of her childhood days, can seem almost mystic and fantastical, often seeming to be spiritually off on a jaunt elsewhere. This statement would not be untrue, as her mind is always buzzing in thought, much as nature always buzzes with life. Although on the outside she may seem slow, or simply not paying attention, the latter of which is sometimes the case, Elouana often simply stares off into the distance, rather than looking someone in their eyes when speaking with them. Contrary to her cool exterior, however, inside Elouana, true storms can brew, the only indicator of which is usually a small breeze that picks up around her when her patience is tested. If someone has truly upset her, she goes silent, which, especially outdoors, can be truly terrifying if she’s been upset enough, as wind picks up, and for the duration of her mood, it feels as if a hurricane is approaching, although one never will unless she truly intends for one to form.

Biography: Corentina-Elouana was born on the outskirts of the town of Huelgoat to a pair of Breton parents proud of their Celtic heritage, every day from a young age encouraging their daughter to learn about the world around her. Attending a bilingual school, Elouana became fluent both in French and Breton, moving on to learn English as she grew older, dabbling a bit in Inuktitut on a vacation to Canada at age 10, as well as falling in love with the Newfoundlandic dialect of English, which she committed to learning for her English. During her visit to Nunavut, she was amazed by the vastness of the Canadian wilderness, and spent plenty of time out in the tundra near the hotel where she stayed. It was here where she truly discovered her affinity for all things natural, finding herself able to influence the growth of trees, the flow of streams, and, then to a rather limited degree, the weather. Amazed by this newfound talent, Elouana would attempt every day from that day forward to spend time with nature.

With each visit to nature, her connection grew more powerful, becoming so great that the summer before entering Seconde, or sophomore year, as it is known in the United States, her appearance itself began to change. Her skin, which had always been relatively pale, became a pristine white enough to make old european royalty weep, and her face developed freckles. Then came the more noticeable changes. Her eyes became a piercing bright green, as if life itself came to inhabit her soul, her hair began to turn blue as the sea, growing to be a sky-blue as it moved further from her scalp, and her body took a form which most could describe fitting that of an anime goddess, particularly one with domains relating to life.

One day, on the way to school, she heard a voice that she had never before heard as she stepped near a lizard, cursing at her. She looked around, before noticing these curses came from the small reptile, and bent down to look more closely. The lizard repeated its angry exclamation, and so Elouana discovered she was able to comprehend animals. The next day, while sitting in class, she focused in on an obnoxiously buzzing fly, and, sure enough, she could understand what it was saying too, although the average insect proved hardly intelligent enough to even consider having a conversation with. Upon swatting the fly down, however, Elouana felt a twinge of pain in her hand from killing it herself, although this would not phase her in the future when dealing with insects, particularly mosquitos, as the sensation was barely enough to register had she not been paying attention.

One way or another, these traits did not go unnoticed, and eventually, the Koaduuiueg household found strange men knocking on the door, shouting in French to allow their daughter to go with them. Soon, it became apparent that these people did not have Elouana’s best interests at heart, and Elouana’s mother muttered in Breton suggesting that Elouana might “head to the restroom.” Elouana caught on what her mother was implying, and quickly asked if she might excused, bringing up the workings of the female reproductive system when asked why. Soon, she had some essentials packed, and was out a back window into Huelgoat forest, where she found her first true use of her powers in making a thick mist throughout much of the forest.

Carefully, Elouana would check in on her home every day for four days, where the Commission finally seemed to have given up. As she came into the open, however, a trap began apparent, as a literal little bird alerted her to the presence of a pair of men from the Commission stationed ready to pounce in camouflage around her. Nature, however, had another trick up its sleeve. As the men pounced, Elouana was able to influence two trees in their vicinity to reach out and land punches to them, leaving them full of splinters on the ground. In a moment of respect to the dead, Elouana focused to make the ground around them swallow them into shallow, unmarked graves.

This natural power was finally noticed by others as well, and soon, Specter scouted out Elouana, providing some form of explanation of the events which had transpired the week prior, promising her safety among the numbers of other Superiors, and offering a chance at revenge against the newly named “villains” of her story, the Commission. From then on, Elouana counted herself among the students at Hadley Academy, ready to join those who desired in the redemption of Superiors, as well as perhaps furthering her own goals of achieving a form of harmony with nature.

Do the UNSC use superiors as spies to find other illegal superiors, e.g. people working for specter?

I wouldn't think so, not for lack of trying but for lack of recruits. There's very few Superiors who are likely to cooperate with the Commission since all the Commission has ever done is repress them, and the Commission likely wouldn't trust any Superior agents they might have since they could easily be a double agent for Specter or another organisation or group.

Image


Abilities

Equipment: Swordcane

Primary Ability:Form-shift, physical image change to any humanoid form.

Other Abilities: non-biological transmutation, able to change the molecular structure of non-biological items as long as original chemical make-up and mass is retained. Restriction of this ability is based on the user's mass

Nationality:U.K.
Hometown:Bristol
Sexuality:Bisexual

Skills:Fencing, international etiquette, gymnastics
Flaws:strength-based combat, technologically illiterate beyond basic necessity, over-exertion of non-biological transmutation ability causes massive migraines and weakness

Personal

Personality: Many would refer to Johnathan as a gentleman in all aspects. Respectable, honest, and smooth are some of the words used to describe him. Not too fond of technology, he prefers his words and actions do the talking. Though his abilities have often been used for villainous acts, he know he can find a way for them to benefit others.

Biography: When Mr. and Mrs. Merodon first discovered they were having a child they were excited. Their firstborn after years of trying, but they discovered a new fear when testing began. The ultrasound showed a formless mass. At first the doctors thought it was signs of a miscarriage or deformation, but as the scans continued they made note of forms appearing from time to time. Some times there were female signs, but mostly they were male. When it came time for the delivery Mrs. Merodon pushed through, but the strain was too much for her small frame, causing her to pass before laying eyes on her child. Mr. Merodon, now the sole parent, held the changing mass of flesh in his arms.

In his infantile years, Johnathan was hid away, and his father showed baby pictures of himself to give the child a form to copy. He found his shape and developed smoothly from there, and Mr. Merodon kept the abilities secret from him as he grew older. Through his primary year, Johnathan's father taught him the many arts of etiquette and finesse, then it came the day that the Commission cracked down. The new acts made it harder on many superiors to live, and Johnathan was becoming curious. He was beginning to have image problems and his father began to notice ripples whenever Johnathan seemed down and out. Finally he broke down and began to tell Johnathan about his abilities. That he could change his physical shape at will. This drove Johnathan away. He now knew about this, but what else was there. He ran off and hid until he heard of the academy.

He returned home, reconciling with his father before leaving for the academy, and his father gave him his great great grandfather's swordcane for protection. With his life packed away he made his way to the academy to begin training at the age of 17. Over the past few years he honed his form-shifting abilities, and unlocked the ability to bend non-biological matter as to make full disguises to get through any surveillance system. He also kept practicing gymnastics and fencing, as well as keeping in touch with international affairs. He hopes that one day he can infiltrate the human structure and help dismantle it from the inside.
