We Can Be Heroes... (OOC/Superhero/CLOSED)

Postby Tarnen » Thu Nov 16, 2023 5:39 pm

Metahumans. They are more than just humans; they are the next stage of evolution. Some see them as saviors, others as threats. But most of them have joined forces to protect the world from dangers of all kinds, whether they come from other metahumans, natural disasters, or alien invaders. The most elite and respected group of metahumans is the League. Founded in 1950, the League has been the symbol of heroism and justice for decades. Every five years, they hold a global audition to recruit new members who have proven their worth and potential. Every city in the world sends its best candidates, hoping to have their own heroes join the League. And you are one of them! You have been chosen to represent your city and compete for a spot in the League. You will attend the oath-taking ceremony and then enter the Citadel, the headquarters of the League, for further training.

ImageThe Citadel.


Congratulations you have been selected to join the League; the best-known group of superheroes known around the world. You will be flown to the Citadel, the HQ of the League and where you will be sworn in as a member in training. Here you will train and learn what it means to be a hero. You will become a beacon of hope, justice and truth to people all over the world. You will also meet the Seven, the League top leaders and legendary heroes in their own right! Welcome to the League.

A quick FAQ:
What is this RP about?
You will create a metahuman hero, that has recently been recruited to the League.
What are metahumans?
Basically, metahumans are altered humans. Which can happen in 2 ways, technically 3 but that comes later! So, you yourself could be altered by science! (Which rarely happens nowadays but still does.) Or be born from parents of metahumans.
When does this RP takes place?
This takes place in 2022 on an Earth similar to ours but also different in many ways.

APP
Name: Angelina-Marie Thompson
Alias: Plus one
Abilities (Limit 2):
  • Duplication/cloning, limit to this power is she has to eat something before she clones herself or duplicates something, since it takes energy from her and if she doesn't eat before she does then, she gets sick.
  • Touch-based learning - if she touches a weapon or something, she learns all about it and the person who last had it. Limit to this is, if she uses this power too much, she gets headaches and risks amnesia/losing her own memories.
Personality:
  • Lighthearted kind of girl, doesn't really take much serious, can be silly and weird at times
  • Caring and tender, watchful protector sort, acts kinda like a big sister in that she just likes caring for people and protecting them from danger
  • Can be somewhat shy and quiet at times, is also observant.
Short Bio:

Angelina-Marie, later known as Plus one, didn't get her powers naturally; when she was six and her parents had brought her to the doctor for her check-up and she was getting her X-ray to check on her bones, energies in the X-ray machine flooded into her system and gave her her powers. Her parents were confused when suddenly she had came out of the radiology room and there were four of her standing right-infront of them.

Ever since then, she'd always wanted to protect and take care of other people.
Appearance:
Misc:

The touch-based learning power is based off of Rey Skywalkers' power (iirc it was when she touched the lightsaber, she remembered its history)

She is somewhat based off a villain from Teen Titans (the show that came-out around like, 2002 or something like that, iirc) - I forgot his name, but I know he could also clone himself with his power.

Name: Amalur Caro
Alias: Lady Justice
Abilities:

Electromagnetic Spectrum Mastery:
The ability to observe, absorb and project the full spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, from radio to gamma rays.

  • Can only observe and project wave lengths above visible light through her eyes.
  • Can only project as much as she aborbs, which she stores as a charge.

Superhuman Life-Force:
Superhuman athleticism, durability and healing.

  • At baseline physically 'peak human' across the board
  • Can consume Electromagnetic Radiation Charge to exceed and maintain superhuman vitality

Personality:

Attractively Sagacious: Most who interact with her see her as a bright and charismatic, if sometimes sardonic, woman.

Viciously Pugnacious: For all her personability in most circumstances, she's eager to employ violence & brutality.

Socially Concious: As much as she enjoys inflicting physical pain, she has a very strong aversion to systematic injustice.

Short Bio: Amalur was Born in Houston, Texas, Amalur's her mother is Merel De Raaf, the superhero South African Superhero Blackbird and her father is Ametza Caro, the former undocumented brazillian immigrant turned billionaire founder of the advanced weapons manufacturing companies in the world and 'unpowered' superhero MultiFerramenta, In addition to growing up in a life of wealth, she'd also had superpowers from a very young age, specifically the ability to see, feel and understand the electromagnetic spectrum, allowing her to see through and past objects and into people. At first, this seemed to be the extent of her superpowers, so it didn't preclude her from participating in a variety of sports with non-super powered individuals. She took a particular liking to combat sports, as she enjoyed using her powers to see in detail the damage her blows did to her opponents' bodies. At 16, she developed her current powerset, vastly expanding her capabilities. Her parents would then help her to launch and manage her superhero persona and presence online and it didn't take long for her to gain millions of followers on social media and even some acting roles. After graduating university with a master of science in astronomy, she'd focus full time on her 'career' as a celebrity superhero.

Appearance: Image
Misc:

  • Stands at over 6 and a half feet and over 200 pounds
  • The sword's blade is made of an alloy that can be superheated to add to cutting power.

Socially Concious: As much as she enjoys inflicting physical pain, she has a very strong aversion to systematic injustice.

Short Bio: Born in Texas, Amalur's has been exceptionally tall, smart and capable of fending for herself from a young age. This was important, because both of her parents worked away from home, leading her to spend a good deal of time 'raising herself' through a diet of internet consumption. At very young age she anonymously contributed on social media and learned how to rally people to her causes. When her parents were around, it was mostly to take her to Muay Thai and Judo practice and competitons, which she enjoyed for the opportunity to kick, punch and choke other kids without getting into trouble. Fencing was another thing she partcipated in as well.

When she hit 16, her powers started coming in and being the internet user she was, she started using them to build a large, monetizeable following online. She is now one the largest followings for a superhero in the world and she's cultivated them into being very defensive of her inclinations to violence.

APP
Name: Colten Brown
Alias: Hammerstone
Abilities (Limit 2):
  • Earth Manipulation - Colten is able to control earth, stone and gems, up to 100 feet away. He must be able to see the area he is manipulating, and he must be within this same range of 100 feet of some kind of earth or stone to control it, however. So, this power might be not as helpful on a plane flight, for example. However, with this, he can control the existing earth (or stones, gems, etc.) around him by hardening or softening them, making walls and barriers, throwing rocks from the ground at targets, hands to grab, anything relatively normal. (A working nuclear fission plant made out of soil is completely hilarious but extremely unrealistic). He is able to do this as quickly as he can think. Colten cannot create earth, stone, gems. He can only work with what's available (but see below power).

  • Gorgon Blast - Colten's second ability is a petrification beam he fires from his hands, that can turn any inorganic solid object into stone. That includes clothing, shoes, computers, watches, guns, and other inorganic things as long as they are not magical, mystical, psychic, or have some kind of super power use connected with them. He can, however, turn robots into stone statues. Colten is able to fire this Gorgon-blast blind (not needing his eyesight to turn things into stone). But it is not usually the best idea to do so, because it makes friends annoyed to say the least if they were trying to call someone on their phone, and it's now a rock. What Colten turns to stone WILL become normal again, in about 10 minutes or so. If Colten concentrates and keeps blasting away (for several turns), he can turn larger objects - including buildings - into stone as well. Larger objects take longer to return to normal. Colten has experimented trying to turn liquids to stone, but it reacts weird and the best he gets is that the drink ends up with some chalky grey specks in it.

Personality: Colten Brown is laid-back, hands-on, and doesn't mind getting dirty to get a job done. He wouldn't be the first to make his presence known in a group, but would be friendly and courteous at first. Afterwards, Colten might come off as cynical and sarcastic. He also has a bit of a practical joker streak to him that he shows to his better friends.

Short Bio: Colten was born and raised in a small town near Cheyenne, Wyoming. His parents were ranchers and he quickly learned what it meant to ride a horse and work with cattle. A hands-on type of guy, Colten made it through school - even with good grades - but it was never his joy. Since everyone else was going to college afterwards, he also went. Picked up a degree in ag business from the University of Wyoming in Laramie, and then moved back home to help run the ranch. While he made friends there, he never found any girl to marry, so he's still searching.

Colten's powers manifested themselves shortly after he had returned home from college. They erupted - quite literally - one day moving cattle. The ground shot up in several pillars in different places, startling the cows and in one case, injuring one who fell off a skyrocketing pillar of earth. Astonished, Colten had no idea what he was seeing and why it was happening. The ground stayed in its misshapen state after he called his father over to tell him what happened. Unsure of what was happening, his father called the local sheriff, and the local law enforcement came out to assess the situation. That led to a deputy who had a contact higher up making a few calls and getting details about where potential meta-humans might be sent.

After a few days went by, Colten felt a growing sense of control over the misshapen land he had tried to move frightened cattle from. He found that by drifting off to a different place in his mind, he could literally move mountains. The earth was put back in its previously held spot. He began moving, shaping, and toying with the earth, growing more comfortable each time. Finding abilities in his family's lands, Colten began to experiment with other types of terrain - the sandhills of western Nebraska, the nearby Rockies. Each time was the same as before, as though any kind of earth was putty in his mind's hands. Soon after, he also realized he could turn things into stone - fortunately, no animals or people. And the stone would eventually return to normal, which meant Colten learned he could have fun pulling occasional pranks on his parents.

Along the way, his dad revealed a family secret - Colten's parents were both metas themselves. They would be considered low-leveled, and not league material. Colten's dad had a deeper understanding and empathy with his lands, which gave him a sense about what it could sustain, and even to some extent if anyone came on his territory. Colten's mother had a low level endurance to her, that enabled her to persist in helping run the ranch without getting nearly as tired. Be that as it may, Colten knew where his abilities had come from.

Doing hero-work started small. The sheriff would call him out when an animal fell down a well, or when a nearby fire could use some extra dirt poured on it to put it out. Eventually, however, Colten became loaned out to various patrols to "work his magic" on catching car thieves and looters in Cheyenne. Wanting to keep his secret I.D. somewhat hidden, he took on the name 'Hammerstone' and had something of a costume made. Became involved even more in law enforcement and helping catch criminals.

Eventually, an invitation to join the League arrived, and Colten was on a plane to join others like him.

Misc: Colten can ride horses, and for a few years rode on the rodeo circuit. He's a good shot with a bolt-action rifle or shotgun. Could probably use an automatic rifle without much difficulty. Colten can lasso. He's a simple eater - meat and potatoes kind of guy. Likes country music somewhat but also loves classic rock. He doesn't consider rap or techno to really be music.

Name: Colten Brown
Alias: Hammerstone
Abilities (Limit 2):
  • Earth Manipulation - Colten is able to control earth, stone and gems, up to 100 feet away. He must be able to see the area he is manipulating, and he must be within this same range of 100 feet of some kind of earth or stone to control it, however. So, this power might be not as helpful on a plane flight, for example. However, with this, he can control the existing earth (or stones, gems, etc.) around him by hardening or softening them, making walls and barriers, throwing rocks from the ground at targets, hands to grab, anything relatively normal. (A working nuclear fission plant made out of soil is completely hilarious but extremely unrealistic). He is able to do this as quickly as he can think. Colten cannot create earth, stone, gems. He can only work with what's available (but see below power).
  • Gorgon Blast - Colten's second ability is a petrification beam he fires from his hands, that can turn any inorganic material into stone. That includes clothing, shoes, computers, watches, guns, and other inorganic things as long as they are not magical, mystical, psychic, or have some kind of super power use connected with them. He can, however, turn robots into stone statues. Colten is able to fire this Gorgon-blast blind (not needing his eyesight to turn things into stone). But it is not usually the best idea to do so, because it makes friends annoyed to say the least if they were trying to call someone on their phone, and it's now a rock. What Colten turns to stone WILL become normal again, in about 10 minutes or so. If Colten concentrates and keeps blasting away (for several turns), he can turn larger objects - including buildings - into stone as well. Larger objects take longer to return to normal.

If Colten concentrates and keeps blasting away (for several turns), he can turn larger objects - including buildings - into stone as well. Larger objects take longer to return to normal. Colten has experimented trying to turn liquids to stone, but it reacts weird and the best he gets is that the drink ends up with some chalky grey specks in it.

Personality: Colten Brown is laid-back, hands-on, and doesn't mind getting dirty to get a job done. He wouldn't be the first to make his presence known in a group, but would be friendly and courteous at first. Afterwards, Colten might come off as cynical and sarcastic. He also has a bit of a practical joker streak to him that he shows to his better friends.

Short Bio: Colten was born and raised in a small town near Cheyenne, Wyoming. His parents were ranchers and he quickly learned what it meant to ride a horse and work with cattle. A hands-on type of guy, Colten made it through school - even with good grades - but it was never his joy. Since everyone else was going to college afterwards, he also went. Picked up a degree in ag business from the University of Wyoming in Laramie, and then moved back home to help run the ranch. While he made friends there, he never found any girl to marry, so he's still searching.

Colten's powers manifested themselves shortly after he had returned home from college. They erupted - quite literally - one day moving cattle. The ground shot up in several pillars in different places, startling the cows and in one case, injuring one who fell off a skyrocketing pillar of earth. Astonished, Colten had no idea what he was seeing and why it was happening. The ground stayed in its misshapen state after he called his father over to tell him what happened. Unsure of what was happening, his father called the local sheriff, and the local law enforcement came out to assess the situation. That led to a deputy who had a contact higher up making a few calls and getting details about where potential meta-humans might be sent.

After a few days went by, Colten felt a growing sense of control over the misshapen land he had tried to move frightened cattle from. He found that by drifting off to a different place in his mind, he could literally move mountains. The earth was put back in its previously held spot. He began moving, shaping, and toying with the earth, growing more comfortable each time. Finding abilities in his family's lands, Colten began to experiment with other types of terrain - the sandhills of western Nebraska, the nearby Rockies. Each time was the same as before, as though any kind of earth was putty in his mind's hands. Soon after, he also realized he could turn things into stone - fortunately, no animals or people. And the stone would eventually return to normal, which meant Colten learned he could have fun pulling occasional pranks on his parents.

Along the way, his dad revealed a family secret - Colten's parents were both metas themselves. They would be considered low-leveled, and not league material. Colten's dad had a deeper understanding and empathy with his lands, which gave him a sense about what it could sustain, and even to some extent if anyone came on his territory.

I'm intrigued. I can't guarantee very frequent posting, but I'll see what I can do.

APP
Name: Mhambi Mhlongo
Alias: Nightmare
Abilities (Limit 2):

Shapeshifter: Mhambi can change her appearance. This takes time, depending on how extreme the transformation is. She is limited by her body mass, and so cannot turn into something huge or tiny. As such, she generally just "face-swaps" and alters her body to look like another person, which makes her a talented spy.

Reading another's fear and turning it against them: Mhambi has the ability to know the deepest fear of another by looking into their eyes. She has the ability to make the other see this deepest fear of theirs by speaking it into existence, tricking their mind into seeing something that isn't there. She sometimes supplements this with her shapeshifting, such as morphing her face into that of a giant spider to terrify someone who deepest fear is spiders. Most deepest fears are more complex than this though, so this is the exception rather than the rule. People stop seeing the fear after a while, especially if it is used to a minor degree. But if Mhambi gets enough time to speak the fears into existence at length, then the fear can be so intense that it breaks a person's sanity. These are only extreme cases however.

Personality: Mhambi is cynical, suspicious and sarcastic. She is slow to trust, but when she does eventually trust someone she is intensely loyal.

Short Bio: Mhambi was born in the township of Umlazi, in the south of Durban in South Africa. She never knew her father, who her mother refuses to speak about. and who no one else in the family seems to know about. She doesn't even know his name. Her mother, Buhle, is a domestic worker.

Designated male at birth, Mhambi was small, shy and quiet in her youth, bullied by bigger boys at her school. She preferred to spend time with another quiet young girl named Nolwazi. Around the age of 13 Mhambi identified as not only a girl but as a lesbian, developing a close relationship with Nolwazi. Her mother did not approve, but insisted that she did so out of love for her "son", who she did not want to see come to harm. Many of the children and teachers at her school also viewed it as strange, and several bullied both her and Nolwazi, over these perceived "deviances".

Around this time, Mhambi started realising she had powers. She started finding the ability to alter her appearance in a mirror in small ways, initially just something as simple as lengthening or shortening eyelashes and filling out lips, but eventually being able to completely alter the appearance of her face. In private and around Nolwazi she would alter her body entirely into a female form. When she was caught doing this by her mother she beat her. Once, when another girl saw her doing this at school she failed to understood what she had seen, and instead spread a rumour that she had taken to wearing make up. Mhambi was teased for this, and called in by a conservative Life Sciences teacher and admonished and given detention for being in violation of the school policy of not wearing make up at school.

Mhambi started using her shape-shifting powers to get back at those who hurt her. Taking on their appearance and doing and saying mean things about their friends to cause infighting in their social groups, before watching as the groups tore themselves apart.

Mhambi's second ability, that of reading the deepest fears of others and turning it against them developed around the time she was 15. She started by using it against an older girl who was bullying her particularly badly. The girl was terrified of dogs, so whenever she started bullying her, Mhambi would ask her if she heard the barking, causing the girl to hear the wild barking of a dog, and freeze up or run away. Soon, she learned not to mess with her. When the conservative Life Sciences teacher who had given her detentions in the past tried to punish her again for wearing a girl's uniform rather than a boy's uniform to school, she started haunting him with his deepest fear, that he would succumb to "deviancy" himself, by asking him why it bothered him so much, and whether it was because he had the same thoughts as her. After initially lashing out, the teacher increasingly avoided her, realising that whenever he spoke to her he was haunted with visions and thoughts of himself in "deviant" situations.

When Mhambi and Nolwazi were 17, a group of men tried harassing them as they walked home. Mhambi terrified them away by asking making him see an undead apparition of a woman he had killed years before, causing the man to flee in terror, his friends doing likewise when she threatened to do the same to them.

Nolwazi came to fear Mhambi though, viewing her powers as more terrifying and evil than protective. She eventually started ignoring her altogether. This further isolated Mhambi, and has left her very cynical on relationships.

After matriculating with decent marks, but without enough money to attend university, Mhambi took to helping people, usually but not exclusively women, get out of abusive relationships by terrifying the abusive partner, offering her services under the name "Nightmare". It hasn't always worked, as sometimes the abusive partner just comes back later to hurt them even worse. This was the case when a local policeman beat his wife near to death after Mhambi made him see himself being locked away for life for being exposed for this. Mhambi returned and made him see the visions again, but this time did so to such an extreme degree that she broke the man's mind, causing him to go running screaming down the street and later to be institutionalised.

Her "meddling" has also made her some powerful enemies, including the head of a taxi association, and a local politician. At the age of 21, Mhambi is a bit lost in her life. Her powers allow her to make somewhat of a difference some of the time, but she feels like she is fighting a losing battle. She has been pushed forward as the candidate for Durban in a rather controversial pick. While her powers are certainly significant, her selection may also just be a way to get rid of her. She has accepted the nomination, and enters with cautious optimism, hoping that the league may finally allow her to do some real good in the world.

Appearance:

As a shapeshifter, Mhambi changes her appearance, particularly that of her face, frequently. She generally takes the form she is most comfortable with however, that of a young black woman with short black hair and brown eyes.

APP
Name: Victor Vivaldi
Alias: Agathos
Abilities (Limit 2):
Oryzoid-Telekinesis, the ability to move rice through mental effort. In the case of Mr. Vivaldi, the employment of oryzoid telekinesis robs him of his five senses and relies on the state of his mind. While it theoretically lacks a range limitation, Victor’s performance is susceptible to lag and loss of precision beyond a mile.
Superhuman Dexterity, the ability to use one’s own muscles beyond human limits. In the case of Victor Vivaldi, his superhuman dexterity is limited to his fingers. These are also fire-tolerant, although his wrists are not, necessitating gloves that reduce his agility to “mere” humans.

Personality: Mr. Vivaldi is fairly lacking in the artistic department, but he is also fairly good at finding loopholes and creative shortcuts. While decisive in action, his leadership ability leaves much to be desired. This applies to his behavior in friend groups, often going along with the most influential person irregardless of how close the two may be.

Short Bio: Growing up in California, Victor Vivaldi graduated with a degree that failed to secure him a comfortable job. Concluding that survival was not enough, he turned to the League after discovering his telekinesis. Victor assumes that his powers simply manifested late, but a part of him suspects that some aspects of his childhood were not completely normal. Selected from the metahumans of Sacramento, Mr. Vivaldi is confident in his ability and will to serve, as well as understands the boon of training the League can provide him.

Appearance: A tall (6') man in his thirties, with brown eyes, hair, and skin.

Misc: One of Victor’s greatest regrets is that he never learned violin.

APP
Name: Bi Guo
Alias: Ice Storm
Abilities (Limit 2):
  • Cryomancy: Fairly straightforward, Bi can generate and control ice. He can freeze opponents with bursts of cold or thrown balls of ice, he can create weapons out of ice to use on his opponents and can (if he really pushes himself) teleport between creations of ice. A byproduct of this is an aura of cold (roughly 32 degrees Fahrenheit) that surrounds him with a radius of 5 meters. A limitation is that his power is weakened if the ambient temperature around him exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit (this must overcome his ambient 32 degree aura as well).
  • Enhanced resilience: Years of Shaolin training, as well as reinforcement from his power, have enabled Bi to absorb an incredible amount of damage relative to what a normal human would be able to do.
Personality: Bi generally maintains a calm and collected demeanor, a result of his years of training. However, he does display high levels of aggression and is not one to back down from a fight. He can be relied upon to do the right thing, however he has a mindset that the ends justify the means.
Short Bio: Born to a Chinese immigrant family in San Francisco, California in 2000, Bi grew up in a half-way point between China and the United States. Treated as something of an outsider by both groups, he was nonetheless able to live a relatively normal life. That is until his parents died in a house fire when Bi was 7. He was taken back to China by his grandparents, who in turn handed him off to the Shaolin monks. He would live with them for the next several years, training his mind, body, and spirit. Much of his time outside of training in the martial arts was spent coming to terms with his situation, the loss of his parents had a shocking effect on his personality, one that he still hasn't fully recovered from.

Years of training has turned him into almost the perfect weapon, both in his capability and his restraint. He is a highly capable fighter, and the one thing every opponent has noticed about him is that he comes into battle bearing no weapons. His power first emerged in the winter of 2014 when he accidentally froze one of his classmates' arms in a sparring match. While immediate medical attention was able to save his classmates arm, Bi was rushed off into the inner sanctum of the Shaolin monastery. There he discovered a truth about his lineage that he had been previously unaware of: The Bi family had a long history of special powers, generally associated with the elements. It was thought to have been lost generations ago, yet with Bi Guo it made its return. He began to recieve special training from the monks? Learning to hone his powers and incorporate them into his ability.

After nearly a decade of training, Bi and his power have been unveiled as he goes to the League to represent the Shaolin and represent his family.
Appearance:
Image

Misc: Bi is fluent in English and Chinese, and conversational in Russian, Japanese, and Vietnamese.
