Once Upon a Summer (OOC) Superpowers/Open

God I wish I could go back. I'm not sure if I'd try and stop it from happening or just sit back and experience the ride all over again. Things just seem to have gotten worse since then.


It was a dark and stormy night, as all things terrible and great are wont to begin on. You were home, or out enjoying the night with some friends, or perhaps just enjoying some cool air. Regardless of what you were doing, you were in the little town of Ribe, Maine when it happened. Ribe is a small village, about two hours south east of the closest thing to "major" civilization in Bangor. That night in Ribe, something occured, something mystical, perhaps even magical. It flowed through the town, selecting individuals. The only commonality between these select few was that they all were between 15 and 20 years old. You were one of these lucky few. You woke up the next morning, unaware of what happened. Who knows how you discovered it. Perhaps you were on your laptop and flexed your fingers the wrong way, causing a shock that shorted the device. Maybe you were taking a morning swim, and by pure chance found that you could now breathe under the water. Or perhaps a strong desire not to be noticed allowed you to quite literally dissappeare from view. You now had a power far beyond what would be considered normal for a human to do, and things were only going to get weirder from there.

Welcome to Once Upon a Summer, the story of a couple of plucky, or maybe not so plucky, teenagers who find themselves possessing what can only be described as super powers. While these abilities are weak and can only really be used as party tricks at the moment, but none the less they defy reality. Players will RP the teens as they explore their powers, explore the origins of both the town and their new condition, and maybe stumble onto something more in the process. This will be a primarily story based RP, although there are a few mechanics below, mostly relating to the powers. This RP is mostly inspired by series such as Gone, X-Men, and Infamous.

1. Do not Godmod, do not metagame, etc.
2. I'm the OP, and as such that means that my word is law. If not me, then my Co-OP's word is law.
3. There is a very real possibility of death later on in the RP. If your character does stupid things in the face of danger, they will die. You have thin plot armour - don't complain.
4. Respect each other when OOC!


Powers in the RP work in a simple way. Your powers will fall under a "group" and be ranked by their "magnitude". This is in essence their overarching category and their strength. This will allow for easier categorization of powers and for strength checking. For example, if someone with Magnitude 2 super strength is wrestling someone with Magnitude 1 super strength, the Mag 2 is going to win, unless the Mag 1 is clever about it.

This also extends to power growth and development later in the RP. Everyone in the RP will start off with a single magnitude 1 power. As the RP progresses, you will have the opportunity to either upgrade that power, or develop other ones. All powers will be able to be increased up to magnitude 2. Once a power is developed to magnitude 3, the power group it belongs to is declared the characters primary power group. Any other powers within that group may be developed past magnitude 2, but no powers from other groups. In addition, only one power may be developed to Magnitude 5 (And beyond if that becomes necessary.) See below for groups and magnitude scale.

Groups: Powers can be broken down into 5 primary groups. Each of these groups is theoretically infinite in the amount of powers within it. Really, as long as power is not broken and the player can justify it's inclusion in the group, then it is part of that group.

Psionics- The first group covers powers of the mind, mental abilities either able to manipulate reality or gain information through the sheer force of the users will. A Psion might be able to levitate objects or see an objects past, present, and future by touching it. If your power relies on your mind, then you are technically a Psion. Use your gift wisely, and make sure you don't addle your wits beyond the point of control. NOTE: ALL FORMS OF MIND CONTROL ARE BANNED.

Classics- Everyone knows Superman and his many physical gifts. He's fast as a speeding locomotive, he can leap over tall buildings, he can lift a car with his bare hands. If your powers increase your physical abilities without any other change to your body, they fall under the Classics label. You have your braniacs, your strongmen, speedsters, flyers, all of that good stuff. The Classics are, as their name says, the Classic heroes in capes, titans among man.

Elementals- Water, Earth, Fire, Air. The classic elements still have impact on our society. And now you have impact on them. You can control and manipulate them and other physical substances to bend the natural world to your will. Also included in this group is power over things such as light and animal life, as they to are just manipulations of natural forces. The difference between these powers and telekinesis is that Elemental powers will offer greater and more complex control over specific elements, while Telekinesis offers general control over physical objects.

Mutants- You're the unfortunate in this latest series of events. Somehow, your powers have caused you to manifest a physical mutation, one that, while it gives you access to great powers, now also gives you something to hide. More so than the rest of your peers. Some of these mutations can be easy to hide, while others will require more difficult methods to keep hidden. Be careful.

Freaks- These are those powers that don't fit cleanly into another group. For example, Gravity Control, while similar to Psionics and Elemental powers, would not cleanly fit into either category, and thus be a Freakish power.

Magnitude The strength of one's powers, rated on a 1-5 scale

Mag 1- Party tricks as others might call them. These powers are noticeably beyond what their user would be able to do. They may just barely manipulate reality, but they can still be classified as powers. A Mag 1 Psion would have very weak telekinetics, or be able to see maybe a few seconds into the future if it is in their repertoire. Classics would find their abilities at peak human levels, and not very taxing on their stamina. Elementals would have very weak control over their elements, and Mutants would either have very weak or very hard to hide mutations.

Mag 2- Powers are now truely recognizable as superhuman. Where as Mag 1 abilities can be reasonably hidden by their users, there is no mistaking Mag 2s or greater as anything except supernatural. Psions now can lift heavier objects with telekinetics or have greater sight into the future or into someone else's mind. Classics can now go beyond what is humanly possible, including running at speed with cars off the highway, or lifting several times their own body weight. Elementals will begin to gain greater control over their element, allowing for new applications of their powers. Mutant abilities likewise increase in strength, or become easier to hide.

Mag 3- Now more akin to something in a comic book, powers of this magnitude or greater are reserved for one group per person. They are powerful, and now can cause significant collateral damage if the user isn't careful. Psions now have far stronger abilities, such as being able to levitate yourself for great distances or using mind reading as a telepathic weapon. Classics can now surpass most machines in terms of strength and speed. Elementals further their control over their element, and now gain immunity to it. Mutants have now harmonized with their mutation, no longer experiencing some strange side effects and even more obvious mutations will have a degree of ease towards hiding them.

Mag 4- The highest strength most characters can expect to gain with a particular power. Psions can now easily tear apart metal and buildings with a mere thought. Classics can punch through walls of solid metal and run faster than even some of the fastest vehicles on the land. Elementals now have near total ontrol over their elements, even being able to feel their presence, or feel through them. Mutants can now easily hide their abilities, and they may find them gaining new ones as their mutations grow complex. For example, a winged mutant once capable of only flight might find they can now generate wind with their wings.

Mag 5- Rare and perhaps unobtainable, Mag 5 powers represent the capstone of a group. Psions may be able to excersize control over any entire area with just their mind, or perhaps even abandon the body all together. Classics would find themselves gods among men, able to move faster than sound, or tear down a skyscraper with just their hands. Elementals would gain the ability to become their element of choice, and Mutants would gain total control over their mutation of choice, able to manipulate how it manifests and what exactly it can do.


Ribe, Maine is a quaint small town located about 2 hours southeast of Bangor. There's nothing too special about it. It has a dock, a few restaurants, a public library, and two schools, an elementary/junior high, and a high school. The town's money comes mostly from fishing, specifically lobstering, and forestry. Though it's not an exciting place, it makes up for it in natural beauty. A picturesque coast with rock beaches, cliffs, and a few barrier islands provide many a photo opportunity from the dock, and the nearby Mt. Derry provides several hiking trails and camping opportunities. For those who prefer sand beaches, several lakes provide ample opportunity for a day in the sun. These natural attractions have allowed the town to build up quite the summer community, who add almost another 50% to the towns population during the warmer months.

The towns only interesting feature is the McSiddens Army Camp, a cold war era facility that is still upkept by about 20 stationed men. It doesn't serve a purpose for the most part these days and longstanding rumor has it that the base is on it's way to being mothballed. Regardless, it remains an oddity for the local youth, fencing off nearly 100 acres outside of town for what apparently is only the occasional location for a training exercise. It is considered a right of passage among the town's youth to sneak onto the base and spend a night there.

The towns youth typically fall into three strict, but not necessarily divided cliques. Though in the past there has been history of fighting and nastier behavior between them, that exists only in the memory of the older residents of Ribe. Instead, the social groups mostly get along these days, as long as they remain mostly seperate from each other. Some hatreds die hard though, and certain members of each group may oppose intermingling.

Townies- Townies are the diligent and tough kids of life long laborers. They're hardworking, active, and united through a certain serene hopelessness knowing that this is probably the most exciting their lives are going to get. Townies rarely go to college, and most of the time have been working since they were around 12 years old at some form of family business, whether it's hauling traps on a lobster boat or running the shop. While they are mostly given Friday nights and Saturdays off, it's not guaranteed. As such, Townies end up being the least social clique, as their families can't afford them having a social life.

Vaycays- Vaycays get their name from a once derogatory derivative from the term Vacationer. Vaycays are the upper class scions of the east coast suburbs. For most, Ribe provides a summer get away from the hectic life back at home. For their kids though, it means three months of hard partying. Vaycays have often known each other since they were very young, and most have family homes in the area dating back longer than some of the Townie's own family histories in Ribe. Though some have jobs at a local yacht club teaching sailing (service work is for Townies), most spend their summers sleeping during the day and running wild come night.

Outsiders- Presumably named because someone with a teenage sense of humor decided to make fun of the titular clique after reading S.E. Hintons novel for the first time. Outsiders are less defined by their background and more by who they are. The mutual outcasts of both Vaycays and Townies, the Outsiders are the punks, rebels, criminals, and vandals of Ribe. This group spends most of their day getting messing around in the junkyard and "getting up to no good" as the adults would say. An annual summer spectacle for all three groups is the Outsiders Rally, a rally car race between the Outsiders with various cars they have upgraded over the course of the summer.

NS Name: The Anarcho Syndicalist Commune
Character Name: Nathan Evans
Appearance: Nate stands at 6'0" with a lankier build, weighing around 150 lbs. He has a tribal looking tatoo sleeve on his left arm and recently gained muscle definition thanks to his powers. Image
Age: 19
Clique: Outsiders
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Speed, Classic Power Mag 1

Bio: Nathan was born to John Evans, a mechanic, and Lily Smith, a poet, grocery clerk, and former resident and member of the Penobscot Reservation a few hours away. Lily had left the Reservation with her parents in her early teens and attended the University of Maine, before moving with her father to Ribe and becoming a clerk at the local grocery store. She and John started dating soon afterward, and after a few years they were married and Nathan was born. All seemed good, until through sheer bad luck, John was killed by a drunk driver late one Saturday, leaving Lily to raise Nathan on her own.

As such, Nathan didn't have the most functional childhood. It was revealed at a young age that the boy suffered from dyslexia, and as such he ended up hating most of his time in school. He started skipping class as early as the 5th grade, and instead did what he wanted to with his day. Early on this included Skateboarding and just hanging out in front of the grocery store where his mom worked, but as he grew a bit older, Nate found kindred souls in the Junkyard on the outskirts of town. This is also when Nate discovered his inherited love of mechanics from his father.

Nate passed the traditional town right of passage by sleeping out on the military base at age 12, far younger than most who do it. By age of 14 he was deep in with the Outsiders, responsible for a number of graffiti images around town and helping out on the winning rally cars for the past two years. Things took a turn for the worse though when Nate got wrapped up in the worst inter-clique fight in years, between the Townies and the Outsiders the fall Nate turned 15. Nate ended up getting stabbed and hospitalized, and after seeing the state it put his mom in, he dialed back the whole punk thing a bit. Though he still hung out with the Outsiders, he stayed out of the worse actions of the group and stuck to smoking weed, the occasional tagging of a building, and working on cars. At age 16 he dropped out of high school and took a part-time job at his father's former garage, dedicating the rest of his time to fixing up old cars at the junkyard and reselling them, and his own art. At age 19, Nate is seen as an unofficial leader in the Outsiders and is preparing to start working full time in the Garage next fall.

As such, finding his powers came as a bit of a surprise for Nate. He found them after he jokingly accepted a footrace against a Vaycay track runner who was trying to start shit in the Junkyard. To the surprise of all there, Nate handily won the race. Chalking it up to his new workout routine, at least that's what he told those present, Nate soon tested his powers and found he was able to run at world record foot speed for extended periods of time. Since then he has been making the most of his power and using it to win a variety of bets and work on even more cars.

Character Name: Jackie Coldwell
Appearance: Jackie is 5'6" and weighs about 120 lbs. She has auburn red hair, freckles on her and dark green eyes. Unknown to most she has a small tattoo of a moth on her left shoulder. Image
Age: 17
Clique: Vaycays
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Power Clairvoyance, Psionic Mag 1 (Jackie can sense if someone has powers and roughly how strong they are by touching them. She can't determine individual powers, magnitudes, or even how many powers a person has yet.)

Bio: The Coldwells are an older Vaycay family in Ribe, owning a large mansion on the outside of town near the military base for nearly 120 years at this point. They are old New England money, profiteering off of the several trades in the area since the British arrival. Jackie can trace her ancestry all the way back to the Mayflower. Her father is an older gentleman, a Harvard educated lawyer and politician who served as a representative from Massachusetts briefly before retiring to sail his yacht, which he moors in Ribe Harbor. Her mother is a Brown alumnus, and professional hobbyist, seeming to practice whatever fad is in that particular week. Jackie is their third child and second daughter, and according to many the golden girl of the family.

Jackie has gone to a boarding school in England for most of her life, which has given her a somewhat exotic accent, a mix of rich new englander and upper class British. Though her family technically lives on Cape Cod, most of Jackie's time in the US is spent in Ribe, simply due to how her school breaks work and her father's near obsession with the traditional family vacation home. She's long been a fixture of the Vaycays and is known by the Outsiders as "The Duchess of Ribe" because of her accent and typical upper class attitude. Though she sails like most of the Vaycays, Jackie is much more musically talented and can play multiple instruments and sing, thanks to her perfect pitch.

One morning in early June, Jackie awoke on the couch in a friends home, feeling a little weird. Tapping her friend on the shoulder, Jackie suddenly recieved a weird, empty feeling. Soon enough she discovered that this was just the vibe she got from unpowered people. While others discovered powers like those out of a comic book, Jackie instead found that her gift was being able to find out who had these powers.

NS Name: Great Confederacy of Commonwealth States
Character Name: Arwen Williams
Appearance:
Image

Height: 1.70 m
Weight: 65 Kg
Age: 16
Clique: Vaycays
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Mind reading, psionic, magnitude 1
Bio: If you know Arwen’s name, then you know all you need to know about her parents. Unapologetic geeks, by their own account. They play Dungeons and Dragons in their spare time, they watch the Lord of the Rings extended edition every Christmas, and they will knock you to the ground if you even mention the idea that the death star hole was a bad idea (It was purposefully built-in to allow for its destruction!). This image is carefully cultivated, as Bill and Shereen Williams run a large New York publishing house that specialises in fantasy and sci-fi. Everything is about image to them. They sell well because of their image as down-to-earth nerds, and their appearance on conventions. This belies the fact that Williams Publishing is one of the biggest players in their field on the East Coast, with an office building in downtown Manhattan and hundreds of employees.

Arwen Williams is as much a part of this charade as she is their daughter. Her life has been vigorously shared on social media. Her gender reveal, birth, naming, first time reading the Hobbit, first time seeing Star Wars, first time playing Dungeons and Dragons… Her life and image are as carefully cultivated as that of her parents. And it is something that has stuck with her. She cares deeply about the opinions of others, almost deriving her entire self-worth out of it. A negative opinion can crash her, just as much as a positive opinion lifts her up. This has come with very present issues of self-doubt, almost looking for ways people might dislike her.

As a result, she has pretty much secluded herself from social interactions during the summer. At home in New York, she has a handful of friends she trusts. Out here in Maine, however, she has never gotten a real sense that people liked her very much, and as such has kept out of everyone’s way. She likes to go out from time to time, but social occasions can quickly grow weary on her because of the pressure of living up to expectations. Arwen interprets neutral responses, and sometimes even positive responses, as negative, and will do everything to counteract this feeling to the detriment of her own mental health. Despite multiple requests, she has not been allowed to see a psychiatrist by her parents because it would hurt their carefully crafted image.

Bio:
Partyier Extraordinaire as his friends called him, was born on the west coast, his father a man who will worry more where to invest rather than what his son is doing and his mother a woman who spent most of her life as a director of a bank, they tried to get their son to become many things, a doctor, lawyer, banker, and many others but their son had only one real talent, a talent of befriending, he had a large group of friends, the people he knew mostly said he was an extrovert to the extreme, though they usually forget to mention that he was irresponsible at the time, though, secretly he just wanted to get applause and approval from others, he recognized he needed to do something with his life, but was too afraid to do it.

He regurarly went for vacationing in Ribe, and he remembered mostly the inspiration some parts of the town given him, due to this after some time and mustering courage he moved to Maine, to Ribe, still on his parents money, bought himself a large house and it seemed he would spent all summers drunk, but he had a clear reason in mind, because a secret to his parents he took quite a lot of courses on design, thought hangover on most of them, he got something out of them, because when he got to Ribe he immediately started to design, clothes, and sold those designs under a pseudonym. He moved here to be separated from his previous lifestyle and his previous friends so he could focus on the. He still did not reveal to his parents he isn't only a parasite on their profits as they call him every time he visits them and continues his previous life for a month or two back on the west coast, because, he sustained himself on the money he got from his designs for nearly a year now, he wanted them to know this after his 20th birthday, it happened while he was having the party, so, he will have two new things to reveal after he gets over hangover.

Nah this is also a pretty unique take. I'd be even a little inclined to say he'd fit a little more with the Outsiders than the Vaycays, who tend to be more preppy than Steve here seems. Also because he's a year round resident, which, while I don't think it would be unheard of, they typically don't hang with the Vaycays, sticking more to the Townies and the Outsiders.

Interesting concept. Tag.

NS Name: Aidannadia
Character Name: Cindy Caulfield
Appearance: https://www.freepik.com/premium-photo/asian-teen-girls-with-guitar-shoulder-lawn_2126495.htm
Age: 16
Clique: Townies
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Create small balls of light anywhere from the size of a marble to a golfball that radiate warmth; They pop like firecrackers when crushed. Elemental. Magnitude 1
Bio: Cindy is the daughter of a baker, and spends most of her time in the shop, slowly baking away with her overbearing family. She doesn't have much time to get around, but her work at the shop does come with some petty cash she can spend at the arcade or the small clothing outlets in town. Her friends are a tight knit group of kids with other parents that work along the center of the town's street, growing up with them nearby made it almost impossible for her not to get along with them.

Secretly, Cindy has always wanted to become a singer and has a secret soundcloud where she records her music. Some day, she hopes to escape from her home town and take her music on the road, but for now, she's happy with her private followers that praise her singing voice. She scheduled to perform soon at a café nearby, and she's looking forward to the opportunity.

This summer she hopes to be spending more time with her friends and less time at the bakery, all while cultivating her career as an artist.

Appearance: Standing at 1.70 meters and weighing at 69 kg Stephen is quite a skinny person, which is a miracle given his lifestyle, his quite long brown hair is tied at the back on his head, his eyes are the color of your average dumpster truck being intensively green his lips those of intensively red lipstick, usually wears clothes of his own design
Age: 20
Clique: Vaycays
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Projecting His Thoughts ( I have no idea how to call it another way, but, he basically can project an image of his thought or thoughts on a nearby surface ) Psionic, Mag 1
Bio:
Partier Extraordinaire as his friends called him, was born on the west coast, his father a man who will worry more where to invest rather than what his son is doing and his mother a woman who spent most of her life as a director of a bank, they tried to get their son to become many things, a doctor, lawyer, banker, and many others but their son had only one real talent, a talent of befriending, he had a large group of friends, the people he knew mostly said he was an extrovert to the extreme, though they usually forget to mention that he was irresponsible at the time, though, secretly he just wanted to get applause and approval from others, he recognized he needed to do something with his life, but was too afraid to do it.

After some time and mustering courage he moved to Maine, to Ribe, still on his parents money, but he had a clear reason in mind, because a secret to his parents he took quite a lot of courses on design, thought hangover on most of them, he got something out of them, because when he got to Ribe he immediately started to design, clothes, and sold those designs under a pseudonym. He moved here to be separated from his previous lifestyle and his previous friends so he could focus on the. He still did not reveal to his parents he isn't only a parasite on their profits as they call him, because, he sustained himself on the money he got from his designs for nearly a year now, he wanted them to know this after his 20th birthday, it happened while he was having the party, so, he will have two new things to reveal after he gets over hangover.

Well, I wouldn't say year round, but, sticks for most of the year, also, I think Vaycays fit him more due to his bio and how he acts when people he was a friend of back on the west coast are near him

Updated the bio to justify him belonging in Vaycays and added a bit to the power to make, less useless.

He's always done well in school, but he sometimes misses class or extra curriculars to help out with the shop. Because of his work, he does get a small amount of petty cash to spend around, so it isn't all bad.

Clyde hopes to become something more than the son of a baker, but each year that passes, that dream seems further and further away.

Not sure if this is WIP or not, if it's not then you'll need an RP sample and more meat to that Bio. Also are the balls he makes made of Light or are they their own thing? Because if they're just light then that would technically be Light manipulation and fall under Elemental powers.

It's a WIP.

I was under the impression that Elemental was only the four primaries listed, but if that's the case I'm gonna edit it.

"Also included in this group is power over things such as light and animal life..." from the OP. Freak powers is more of a catchall term for more out there concepts that don't really fit into the main groups. For powers similar to this, the equivalent freak powers would be over things like Gravity or Heat.

I suppose a more general way of saying it is that Freak Powers are powers that produce a similar effect to other powers, through wildly different methods, ex. Gravity Manipulation to Telekinesis

Character Name: Bridget Reeves
Appearance: Rough Appearance
Age: 20
Clique: Townies
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Supernaturally Dense (Mutant, Mag 1): Her body, both inside and out, is incredibly dense, almost to the point of indestructibility. She can withstand extreme temperatures and pressures, as well as absorb most physical blows without even being injured. This also increases her strength, stamina and constitution to an almost peak human level, but with a drawback - despite the appearance of a young woman of average height and weight, she clocks in at several hundred pounds. Weak furniture? That's broken. Swimming? No-can-do. Heck, she can't even take the elevator anymore.
Bio:
Bridget could've made it big. Probably. At least, that's what she was told so many times as a little girl. So much potential, they'd say - always on the honor roll, they'd say. Until her parents nearly went broke to get her into that expensive private high school. "Next up, Harvard!" they'd boast to their fellow struggling middle class parent friends. What a steaming load of garbage. She wasn't a genius. And being surrounded by all the academic overachievers only proved that. So, naturally, those straight A's started to decline. But now, following a nasty divorce that probably won't ever be mended, they suddenly don't give a damn? Oh well. At least her ACT score will get that scholarship to college, right? Oh, you mean it won't? Oh well. Wait, you mean now that she's eighteen and with no hope for college, Dad's kicking her out of the house, and needs to go out and get a job and support herself?

Enter stage Ribe! How the heck did she wind up here from New York, anyway? Fast forward, oh, say, two years? And look! Her own run-down apartment to live in, barely being held up by a terrible bartending job...at a terrible restaurant, with a terrible boss, for a terrible salary. Tips are nonexistant, those spoiled brats are running amok during the night shifts, and what was once a quick fix to relax is now half a pack of cigarettes a day.

Character Name: Delilah Jansson
Appearance: Delilah stands at 5-6, has dark chocolate skin, long black hair, green eyes, and a two inch scar on her right cheek from a dog bite. She is currently wearing a blue t-shirt and blue jean capris, is barefoot, and has diamond-shaped pearl earrings
Age: 16
Clique: Vaycays
Powers, Group and Magnitude: "Levitate objects and see an objects' past, present, and future by touching it", Pisonic, Mag 1
Bio: Delilah was born to William Jansson, a scientist, and Heather Mason, a doctor. Her father, William, had met her mother, Heather, when the two were working on a project in the same department. They started dating soon afterwards, and four months later, they were married. Around a year later, Delilah was born and the family started to vacation in Ribe.

Delilah came to somewhat resent traveling from home every year to spend the summer in Ribe, but she still made friends and even underwent the "sleeping on the base" trial at the age of 14, passing it without effort. Delilah heard about a mechanic that was fixing up old cars and went to investigate, as her father had several old cars that needed worked on.

John and her hit it off and the two became friends. Over the next two years, Delilah learned a lot about working on old cars and even started fixing her father's cruisers and hot rods that he had collected over the years.

Her power was completely unexpected. One night, she was sifting through a few wrenches while working on an old car and one of them levitated in the air. She then somehow saw the wrench being made in a factory, her holding it in her hand, and then her somehow using it to fight...Something. Delilah merely set the wrench down on the workbench and went to bed, thinking what had happened was just because of tiredness. But then it kept happening with different objects. Her mother's medical equipment, her father's scientific instruments, and even everyday objects.

hi Arch


Right so I've messaged you on the hogwarts Discord regarding your backstory, I figure that it's better to handle that with actual conversation than over an OOC thread. As for the power, you've included two powers in one, and that second power would be Mag 2, bordering on Mag 3 depending how far into the future or past she can see. You'll need to either choose telekinesis or the clairvoyance, and if you choose the clairvoyance you're going to need to tone down the power into seeing an object past or future for a few seconds in either direction, or in one direction for about a minute.

NS Name: Sammuramat
Character Name: Isabella "Izzy" Jackson
Appearance: Izzy is a tall, willowy white girl with pale blue eyes and always impeccably curled and freshly balayaged honey-brown hair. She wears just enough make up to fool people into thinking she just has natural eyeliner and has never had a spot. There are rumors that she's had to have plastic surgery to have a face so perfect, which she always answers with a perfect and knowing smile. She has the posture of a dancer, and dresses with equal elegance. And then the mutation happened, which... changed things.
Age: 19
Clique: Vacays
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Mutant group, magnitude 1. Irregular patches of invulnerable scales are dotted across her body, particularly at weak points such as the inside of elbows, all over her abdomen, and the back of her neck. The scales are black, hard, rough, reptilian-looking, and as strong as armor.
Bio:
Izzy's parents are so rich that she has never really had to worry about making a living. Her dad's inherited a couple generations worth of wealth, and her mom was briefly an actress. She had a youth where every interest of hers was indulged, and her parents pampered her and her older brother in every way possible. She attends a private college in England, partially to study English literature, and partially because that's where all the best people go, of course. She gets along very well with minor duchesses and counts. She has a notebook where she makes note of the net worths of the boys she's slept with and of their parents. She tutors younger children on how to analyse poetry, not for money, just to fill time. She often goes to horse races with her English friends and they'll pick a horse to bet on, and if it wins, one of them will buy it.

Still, she looks forward each year to vacationing in Ribe. Her family have had property there for years, right on the beach. At college, she's always among people richer or more charismatic or prettier than her. It's nice to go back to Ribe, where she' doesn't have to deal with very many people she considers her betters. She still has plenty of friends, of course, she's charismatic enough for that. She'll happily get drunk and go sailing and spend a lot of money on clothes, and there's no need to feel any insecurity! It's wonderful. And the town sometimes provides wonderful backdrops for her Instagram posts.

Now, Izzy seems rather shallow. You may be wondering... what is her secret depth? What are her special skills? What else is Izzy but a pretty face? She doesn't know, and that scares her, so she isn't going to question it, and she's just going to keep coasting. She's going to live her life staying in fashion and getting her nails done and posing, and she's totally fine with that.

And then one day she isn't so pretty any more.

I figured I'd go with a somewhat stereotypical super rich and pretty party girl for a Vacay. Hopefully she doesn't overlap too much with Jackie, though they might well be going to the same school/college in Britain. She'd probably wear some of the clothes Stephen designs too, depending on style. Hope she fits! :D

Character Name: Isabella "Izzy" Jackson
Appearance: Izzy is a tall, willowy white girl with pale blue eyes and always impeccably curled and freshly balayaged honey-brown hair. She wears just enough make up to fool people into thinking she just has natural eyeliner and has never had a spot. There are rumors that she's had to have plastic surgery to have a face so perfect, which she always answers with a perfect and knowing smile. She has the posture of a dancer, and dresses with equal elegance. And then the mutation happened, which... changed things.
Age: 19
Clique: Vacays
Powers, Group and Magnitude: Mutant group, magnitude 1 (because it's really hard to hide). Uh, so, she's a skeleton now. No skin or flesh, just bone, though she still functions as if she has all her organs. Means she's kinda invulnerable to any non-bone-based damage, but also, like, she's a skeleton.
Bio:
Izzy's parents are so rich that she has never really had to worry about making a living. Her dad's inherited a couple generations worth of wealth, and her mom was briefly an actress. She had a youth where every interest of hers was indulged, and her parents pampered her and her older brother in every way possible. She attends a private college in England, partially to study English literature, and partially because that's where all the best people go, of course. She gets along very well with minor duchesses and counts. She has a notebook where she makes note of the net worths of the boys she's slept with and of their parents. She tutors younger children on how to analyse poetry, not for money, just to fill time. She often goes to horse races with her English friends and they'll pick a horse to bet on, and if it wins, one of them will buy it.

The backstory isn't bad, I like it. The issue here is that realistically speaking, there is no way to hide such a mutation, and it doesn't come with a power as far as I can tell. You need to be able to hide your abilities without attracting suspicion. I can't elaborate more at the moment but it will be very obvious why once we are a little into the RP.
