Kids Who Become Heroes (Coming back soon. Planning Thread)

Doctorbug, I doubt his power would work that way. But by the stanards of Ghost, a picture is simply not reliable enough. He's not going to have a picture without his sunglasses except when he was a kid, and unless he intentionally took a picture of his eyes, it would be difficult to confirm the color, as lighting and everything could have an effect.

I'd like more along the lines of records and family. You haven't doe anything to state his relationship with his parents, which parent he lives with, step-parents and step-siblings. Etc. Also need more on records. Surely there's more to be said, even if it's saying he has nothing else to be noted.

~Important~
 
On all files, everyone needs to remember to add a section after control notes
 
Mutations: (Pretty much the same as the skellie.)
Abilities: (A summary of their ability. I.E. instead of 'Julie can turn invisible when she wants to', put 'invisibility')
Weaknesses: (Again, looking for more of a summary. Something that gets the information out but looks clean and proffesional.)
 
If you do not already have these on your files, PLEASE repost the files with these added.

Name: Jamie White.
 
Age: 16.
 
Gender: Male.
 
Appearance: Jamie is on the short side, standing at only 5' and is built proportionate to his height at a pretty average, healthy level. His skin is a bit on the pale side, giving him a nerdy look and his eyes and hair are a matching chocolatey brown. He has that old Justin Bieber hair with long bangs hanging in his eyes, although he didn't take the style off the singer. His smiles and grins are his signature, crooked with dimples. He's normally got a serious expression.
 
Clothing: At the start of the RP, Jamie is wearing his usual ratty jeans and a baggy hoodie. He wears clothes that cover as much skin as possible, wearing even gloves, mostly fingerless, most the time.
 
Personality: Jamie doesn't do well in social situations. He often feels awkward and ends up keeping his mouth shut for lack of knowing what to say, when to say it. Sometimes he can pull off seeming calm and sometimes he can't help being jumpy and nervous. He has a habit of always looking over his shoulder and always being suspicious that someone is following or watching him. He's a fearful little guy, but he can become quite fearless if he truly desires. He'll try to get along with anyone, but it takes a lot to get him to talk much.
 
Bio: Jamie has grown up with two older brothers and a single, working mother who works, usually, two or three jobs at a time. With his mom always away at work or asleep, Jamie was always left to the mercy of his bukky brothers, who always insisted on giving him a really hard time. When Jamie discovered his ability, he nearly ended up using it brutally on his two brothers, but refrained. He's only used his ability against a person once, in a fight at school.
 
Mutations: When there's a lot of fear going on around him, and when his ability is in use, depending on the fear, his eyes will change color and remain changed for anywhere from a few seconds to a few days.
 
Abilities: Jamie can tap into your fears. He can sense fear to an extent, and find out your worst fear. If he knows your fear, he can use it against you, making you live it out. He can also use his ability to turn off his own fear, sometimes completely.
 
Weaknesses: As long as his ability isn't in use, the fears of those around him will rub off on him, which is what causes him to be so nervous and jumpy. He has to live out your worse fear too when he makes you experience it, although it's not as real or strong for him.
 
Position: Curious but uncertain about taking part in things.
 
Other: Jamie suffers from terrible nightmares whenever he sleeps.
 
 
~File~
First Name: Jamie
Last Name: White

Address: ********************
 
Height: 5 feet, 0 inches
Weight: 102lbs
Race: Caucasian
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Brown
Hair Length: Long enough to hang in his eyes.
Hair Type: Thick and wavy, with an old Justin Bieber cut.
 
Family: Lives with his mother, Joyce with whom he has little to do with. Older twin brothers of 18, Zack and Curtis, who have been known to bully him constantly. Father, David, who left before his birth and has had no contact with him whatsoever.
 
Records: Grades in school have been of near failing level since his ability surfaced. 2 fights in school, one of which had him suspended. Has scattered events of minor pickpocketing and shoplifting, none of which has been caught.
 
Control Notes: Contact with subject's father, David White, can be made. Financial help and stability can be provided for family. Video evidence of shoplifting is obtained and can be used against subject. Use of ability against humans or any animals would be considered illegal without government permission.
 
Mutations: Eyes will often change color during power use.
 
Abilities: Can sense and cause people or animals to experience their worst fears.
 
Weaknesses: Suffers from experiencing the fears of others, especially when power is used against someone.

Hair Style: Loose and unkempt.

Hair Type: Thick and slightly wavy.

Family: Only child. (Deceased older sister, Stephanie.) Parents, (Victoria Ellzey and Anthony Dresin), are divorced. Subject's relationship with parents is tenuous- more so with his unfaithful mother than his father, who is still unemployed. Both parents have custody and the subject rotates between both houses, but spends most of his time with his father.

Records: Car accident at the age of fourteen. Other than that, nothing more serious than overdue library fines.

Control Notes: The police can be informed of the subjects involvement in the car crash in which his sister died in, and his cooperation can ensure the financial recuperation of both parents.

Mutations: Streak of white hair hidden on the right side of head.

Ability: Luck manipulation.

Weaknesses: Lack of control, limited to immediate area, and dependent on mood.

Okay, is this better?

Name: Elizabeth Berch



Age: 17



Gender: Female



Appearance: Liz has golden brown eyes and matching hair that curves around her heart-shaped face in light waves. She has perfectly formed blonde eyebrows that move a lot as she talks. Her small, round nose looks even smaller to her now that she doesn’t have the bangs she grew up wearing. Her thin lips are usually drawn in a straight line across her pale face; she doesn’t smile as much as she used to. She has prescription glasses, which have round, red frames, but prefers her contacts most of the time. She’s short for her age, standing at 5’ 1”, and there’s not much hope of her getting any taller. On her lower abdomen is a nearly imperceptible bump that only she is really aware of. She’s two months pregnant now.



Clothing: When approached by Ghost, she’s wearing a long, yellow shirt with horizontal white stripes and a pair of denim capris and a pair of high-heeled black boots. Liz likes to wear flowy shirts with jeans. She likes to incorporate stripes, denim, and yellow all into the same outfit.



Personality: Liz is a good girl who rarely does anything wrong, though her one big mistake definitely cost her big. She’s an overachiever and a hard worker. Balancing her schoolwork with her full-time waitressing job can really stress her out sometimes, but she knows that it’s what she needs to do. She used to be a little bit of a dreamer, believing that anything could happen to suddenly give her life a fairytale twist. She loves to sing and draw, or she did before her pregnancy. Now she’s scared and alone and can’t tell anyone about her power or her baby. She gave up drawing entirely, and she rarely even hums. She went from happy and outgoing to lonely and depressed. Rarely a night goes by when she doesn’t have terrible nightmares that in some way involve her current situation. She’s a bit of a loner now. Without anyone to lean on, she’s trying to learn to be a team of one. Right now she’s in a very vulnerable place in her life, so she’s likely to accept help from whoever’s the first person to offer it, though she’s bound to be a little suspicious after having her boyfriend and mother leave her in this state. However, she needs to survive, so she doesn’t have much of a choice at the moment.



Bio: Liz was used to always getting it right. She showed up to work and class on time, looked after her little brothers, and made at least ninety on every test in school. She was never put in detention; her boss never called her out on anything. Everyone loved her and that’s how she liked it. In a moment of weakness, however, her boyfriend got her into bed. When she found out that she was pregnant, her mother was furious and kicked her out of the house, sending her to go live with her drunk uncle in a tiny little shack that he called home. Now she’s forced to pay the bills and make ends meet, usually with little help from him. Her dreams of getting into college are almost non-existent. When she told her boyfriend the news, he suddenly deserted her too. That’s when she discovered her powers. Now she’s been living with her powers and a baby inside of her for two months. She barely shows her pregnancy, and she’s gotten good at wearing clothes that hide the almost invisible bump on her abdomen.



Mutations: None



Abilities: Though Liz herself barely understands what’s going on, she’s concluded that she has some form of telepathy. Telekinesis, to be exact. With her mind she’s able to manipulate the energy around objects in such a way that she can actually move them, though it’s highly unintentional. She hasn’t experimented with her power too much because she’d still rather believe that it doesn’t exist, but it seems that the things she moves just fly around in a clumsy manner. Deep in the back of her mind, she wonders if she’d be able to create more delicate, precise movements if she would let herself practice. She tries to hide the power, but it acts up on its own, especially when she gets intensely emotional.



Weaknesses: As stated, she doesn’t have perfect control of her ability. Factors such as strong emotions, electromagnetic interference (such as from a TV or computer), and physical strength/energy all play a role in the use of her power.



Position: She’s not too thrilled about the idea, but she’s willing to do anything she can at the moment.

I guess that was it, but why would they cesor the word pregn*nt on a teenage sight? It's not exactly a cuss, and I'm sure that we're all old enough here to handle the mere mention of the word.

Princess. Powers arise with puberty. On top of that, I don't want any preg.nant characters. They would skip over anyone preg.nant as an option.

That's kind of a main characteristic of hers that can't really be undone. I could even change the age if you want, to try to keep the age range a little less controversial. Are you sure I can't tweak her to make her fit?
 
If I really must, I'll make a new character. His power would be molecular manipulation. In other words, he'd be able to change the size and/or density of his molecular makeup.
 
Again, I know you don't want a pregn*nt character, but are you sure there's no way to work around that? As far as Ghost goes, they wouldn't have to know at first, if that makes it easier to justify their choosing her. She hasn't seen a doctor, so there's no medical record; she's also in the very early stages of pregn*ncy, so it wouldn't show. Do you think that could work?

No, Princess, I'm sorry, I hate saying no to people, but I just can't have it. Ghost would see it as too much of a problem/liability. The other power could work, but I'd prefer either size or density in particular. You could make it so he could make himself really hard or so much the oposite he can pass through objects. Or you can make it so he can shrink and becomes dense or grows and passes through objects. But if he has both it should be heavily connected.

Any problems that arise by his presence can and will be fixed with the subject’s cooperation. If the subject fails to comply, several old and minor misdemeanors may be reported and filed on the record. Let it be known that the subject’s relatives—an Isabelle and Jasmine Pierce—are also being followed closely.

Okay, I see your point with Liz, though I'd be lying if I said I wasn't really disappointed about not being able to use her.
 
I'll work on the male character and post him when he's ready. As far as the power, the best way I can think to describe him would be something like Mass Master, from Marvel Universe. In case you don't know who that is, he's a member of Power Pack. He manipulates his molecular density by changing sizes or vise versa, though the ability would be a little bit different in this incarnation.

Well you'll have to be able to explain it in the skelli. It doesn't work if the other players don't understand.
