Right, so I'm hunting for ideas to power a new thing that I want to write entitled (obviously) Project Ruby.
This is a relatively modern world in which test have been comissioned by the government to research and test a "superhero shot" (think Captain America). The only problem is, these tests have gone horrendously wrong and this particular area has been shut down, leaving Dr. Rhone and the tests subject flailing.
You are one of these subjects. See profile skeleton below. (Dr. Rhone is the moderator, he is expressly for my use.)
Basic Appearance (include height, weight, and any aberrations that may have occured because of the shot):
Personality (at least four sentences):
Overview of Powers (must be very odd. We do not simply fly, or shoot lasers, or what. We have demons stuck in our brains, etc. etc.):
As stated in the title, this is a literate RP. I take that to mean the extermination of any and all Mary Sues. Please respect that.
I look forward to roleplaying with you!
Appearance: Jake is average height, around five foot ten and fairly lean. He used to play a lot of sports and has maintained his muscle tone, but ever since the experiments started he has taken on a more sickly appearance. Jake has strawberry blonde hair that is thick and straight and pale green eyes that have changed to a marbled emerald color. There are strange splotches of blue along his skin that seem to shift as a side effect of his power. He is slowly dying from radiation sickness.
History: Jake was an orphan raised in the foster system who got into his fair share of trouble, making him the perfect test subject as no one would miss him. Jake's ability was to unstable to continue research and Dr. Rhone wanted him to be exterminated.
Power: Jake has an ability that has to do with time, reality, and molecular alteration. His most impressive power is being able to "teleport". This happens because he is able to grab ahold of the current time stream and bend it, so he can travel through time rips. Traveling through time rips has given him radiation sickness, because the human body was not made for the dimension of time. Jake can teleport anywhere. He has traveled to different time zones before, but this causes him to pass out. Jake's vision is terrible, because he only sees things at a molecular level. He suffers from constant headaches and nose bleeds, but has a real gift with technology and puzzles because he can break them down to their most fundamental levels with his sight. Jake is highly sensitive to energy, electromagnetic energy specifically. He can easily be controlled using EM pulses, and this is how the government managed to control him.
((Oooh! :D I'm gonna post a skellie! If that's alright, that is...))
Basic Appearance: James is very small, always has been and always will be, thanks to the shot. He is about 4'11", and very skinny and bony and lightly built. He looks much younger than he really is, due to having his growth stunted rather early on. He looks physically fragile and in truth he is. Just not as fragile as he would make you believe. His skin is a sickly pale color, a shade of translucent white that shouldn't naturally happen with human skin, with spidery blue veins showing through. His hair was once black, but is now completely stark white, and his eyes, which were once dark brown, are also pure white.
Basic History: James grew up in a happy little family with his father and mother until he was twelve, when they were killed in an 'accident' and James was orphaned. He was taken by the government and given the shot.
Personality: James is prickly and quiet most of the time, but if something bothers him it shows. He likes to keep to himself and stick to his little routines because it's easier than trying to handle new things and people with his disability. When he is around people, he gets frustrated easily because he doesn't know how to handle them any more. He hates being pitied, and he hates the fact that he can't really see, even though he is resigned to it.
Powers: James cannot see like a normal person. They can only see abnormalities in time and space and reality, like warped areas and things that shouldn't exist and the like. The rest of the time, he is blind, unable to see at all. Because he can see such things, he can interact with them a little, like being able to touch warped spots and being able to use some things that don't seem to actually exist on our plain of reality. He makes up for his abnormal blindness by being able to hear, but he doesn't have extremely heightened senses. Just slightly better hearing. (Did I explain that properly?)
CRUD! So I had everything written out but then Chrome crashed for like the fifth time today. Maybe I have too many tabs open...
Yeah, I definitely have too many tabs open.
Anywho, here's a basic overview of Dr. Rhone: A tall, Hispanic-looking man with uncut dark brown hair and a thin beard/mustache combination. He usually wears a white lab coat over street clothes, and possesses a strange ball of green flame that floats around him randomly (first test subject was himself. So there you go.) He is the mod, so I'm not going too in-depth, but I will draw up a proper skellie for a subject.
You can totally join! Age range is anywhere, and gender doesn't matter so long as we don't have a staggering majority of any one.
Basic Appearance~ She's a small, scarred child. She is probably 4 and a half feet at the most, though she looks even smaller because of her build. She is lightly built with narrow shoulders, her figure is very slight and childish, she isn't deathly thin, just small and light. Her skin is a light golden brown and she has scars on her arms, back, and legs.
Tobi has black curly hair that goes to her shoulders and is in two milk-maid braids, her braids are tied with pieces of black string. She has a dingy, plain, light orange and black plaid newsboy cap that's pulled low over her face.
Tobi has a small button nose and rather small ears that are mis-formed, they never fully developed when she was a baby so they look small and mangled, she usually has her hat pulled over them. Her eyes are a very dark brown, but look black they're so dark. Her lips are normal and usually are turned up in a small, innocent smile.
Her clothes consist of black sport shorts that go to her knees, a loose, plain orange t-shirt, a set of dingy white sport socks and small, beat up, black tennis shoes.
Basic History~ Not much is known of Tobi's past. She was picked up by Dr. Rhone at the age of 7, she'd been abandoned at a children's play park and had been trying to swing herself on the swings when she was found. Tobi had been starving when she'd been found but refused to leave the play park at first, it wans't until the coaxed with stuffed animals, crayons, and food Dr. Rhone got he rto coem with him.
It is thought she has no memory of her past, but she has flashes of it here and there, of anger and yelling, or dark rooms and other things she doesn't understand, she doesn't talk about it because she doesn't like too, it scares her. It was only six month after Dr. Rhone picked her up they discovered she was a deaf-mute, at first they thought she'd just been traumatized and that's why she couldn't speak. No one has ever came forward to take her home or claim her ever.
Tobu knows American sign language and write simple things, though her spellings bad and writings sloppy.
Personality~ Tobi is simple minded, she's innocent and shy. Tobi isn't the best thinker and isn't very bright, but she's really sweet and likes helping people. She's also a bit shy, even though she likes helping people she's socially awkward and odd in some of her habits. Tobi usually doesn't fully understand the situation, sometimes it frustrates her when she doesn't understand things. Tobi doesn't seem to realize what consquences are, she does things randomly and when she gets hurt she either brushes it off or it confuses her. Despite being confused easily and not being fully mentally capable Tobi is a very sweet little girl and is loving to her friends, she isn't afraid of dirt or disgusting stuff and is always attempting to make people happy, she doesn't like people being upset.
Overview of Powers~ She is a deaf-mute, but she hears peoples thoughts all the time and she can 'speak' through her mind too. Tobi can either communicate through sending images to other peoples mind, or sending words. She constantly hears peoples though if they're with in a hundred yards of her, though unless she's concentrating they com in as garbled mumblings with a few clear words here and there. If she concentrates though she can 'hear' or 'see' what their thinking with her mind, if someone is remembering something and Tobi is concentrating on them she can 'see' what they're remembering. Because of the constant unintelligible mumblings in her mind Tobi has trouble concentrating though. She can pick out what mumblings are what in her mind by the 'color' of them.
((I'm gonna try posting my skellie in bits...see if that works...bear with me please...sorry.))
Name: Tobi (Pronounce: Toby)
Looks: She's a small, scarred child. She is probably four and a half feet at the most, though she looks even smaller because of her build.

Her skin is a light golden br.own and she has sca.rs on her arms, back, and legs.
Tobi has black curly hair that goes to her sh.oulders and is in two milk ma.id braids, her bra.ids are tied with pieces of black string. She has a dinghy, plain, light orange and black plaid new.sboy cap that's pulled low over her face.
Tobi has a small button nose and rather small ears that are mis.formed, they never fully developed when she was a ba.by so they look small and ma.ngled, she usually has her hat pulled over them. Her eyes are a very dark br.own, but look bl.ack they're so dark. Her l.ips are normal and usually are turned up in a small, inn.ocent smile.
Her clothes consist of black sport sh.orts that go to her knees, a loose, plain orange t-shirt, a set of dingy white sport socks and small, be.at up, black tennis shoes.
History: Not much is known of Tobi's past. She was picked up by Dr. Rh.one at the age of 7, she'd been aban.doned at a children's play park and had been trying to swing herself on the swings when she was found. Tobi had been star.ving when she'd been found but refused to leave the pla.y park at first, it wasn't until the coa.xed with stuffed animals, crayons, and food Dr. Rh.one got her to come with him.
It is thought she has no memory of her past, but she has flashes of it here and there, of an.ger and y.elling, or dark rooms and other things she doesn't understand, she doesn't talk about it because she doesn't like too, it sca.res her.
It was only six months after Dr. Rhone picked her up they discovered she was a de.af mu.te, at first they thought she'd just been trau.matized and that's why she couldn't speak. No one has ever came forward to take her home or claim her ever.

Personality: Tobi is simple minded, she's innocent and shy. Tobi isn't the best thinker and isn't very bright, but she's really sweet and likes helping people. She's also a bit shy, even though she likes helping people she's socia.lly awkward and odd in some of her habits.

She's extremely loyal and obeident too.
Powers: Tobi is a deaf mute, she can't hear or speak in the normal way of putting things, but she's telepathic. Tobi can hear and/or see the thought of people within a two hundred yards of her. Though these thoughts don't come clearly unless she concentrates on a person, they usually come in as garbled speech and images, the speech being mostly mumblings, now and then a clear image form someone's thought or clear words flash across Tobi's mind when she's not concentrating though.
Tobi can also send images and words to peoples mind, this is her way of communicating. She can tell who's who in her mind by the 'color of the person's thoughts so she knows where to send her message. All the unintelligible mumblings in her head makes it difficult for her to concentrate at times, though, especially when she's in a big crowd.
(Can I join this too?)
Yes, of course you can join. I'm going to put up Nova now, and then we can begin after Heart puts up theirs.
Age: Around about 16
Basic Appearance: Medium-tall in height, about five-six. Full-figured. Has wavy dirty blond hair that reaches the middle of her back and floofy bangs that she pins back with headbands. Nova's eyes are of an indeterminate color, and she rarely wears shoes. She is Caucasian, but on occasion (especially when she is overly stressed or has exerted herself too much) her skin seems to glow faintly green. She doesn't have any scars of note, although she has gotten into quite a few scrapes and can be counted on to wear Band-Aids.
Basic History: Her single mother was a good friend of Dr. Rhone, and when she died, he became Nova's guardian. After some morally questionable judgement and a bit of rule-bending, Nova consented to be a subject. Sort of. She's been hanging around ever since she was given the shot at age eleven, being homeschooled by Dr. Rhone.
Personality: Due to being separated from most people for the portion of life that most people are out and about, socializing and making friends (etc, etc), she is fairly reclusive and dislikes talking to people she doesn't know. Otherwise, she is sociable enough, although she has to be reminded about what constitutes as polite conduct. Nova likes her powers, as well as the color red and outer space, but dislikes cats and fears separation from the known.
Overview of Powers: This is going to be a little hard to explain. Nova has been affected by the shot so she takes on the qualities of a radioactive particle of some kind. Really, that's all they know.
(Well then. Okay, post little profile. I'll finish you here.)
The Rest of the Stuff About Powers: Nova can hover about one foot off the ground, more if she is under stress. She seems to absorb and emit energy when she is sleeping. She must always wear gloves, because of an unfortunate incident in her early days of possessing these powers in which water reacted violently with her skin. She cannot come into contact with substantial amounts of polar liquids like water at any given time. "Substantial" meaning more than one milliliter per square inch of skin (try converting that one :P). The only things that don't apply are oils or any other nonpolar liquid.
((We can start now...))
Age: about 15
Appearance: Medium-tall, has long arms and legs. Almost painfully skinny. Has black hair left uncut and dark grey eyes. Each limb is... well, I'll get to that later.
History: Cas was a kid living on the streets before he got picked up by the good doctor and subjected to testing. He came out of it at age ten and actually rand away from the facility several times before coming back begrudgingly.
Personality: A bit rebellious, but doesn't really have it in him to leave the people he loves. His loyalty is fluid, to say the least, and he responds very badly to criticism and verbal attacks. Rather loud and defends his one solid belief: The world is weird and should not be messed with. Kind of hates himself sometimes.
Powers: Elasticity, but only in the joints. Each joint is segmented (read: sliced apart in several locations) and he can turn these 360 degrees around and not injure himself. These joints are wrists, ankles, torso, and neck.
((Yes, yes I am. Sorry.))
Nova sat placidly about an inch above the squishy armchair, her hands folded in her lap. The room was dead silent, and it made her feel uneasy. "Sooo... what's going on?" She twirled a lock of hair around her finger anxiously.
Tobi sat in a bean bag on the floor, she was sitting criss cross and her hands were in her lap, she stared at her hands, not looking around the room. Thoughts murmured in her mind, she didn't attempt to organize or concentrate, and being deaf she didn't hear was Nova had said.
Though Tobi could read lips and knew sign language, she wasn't looking at Nova she she didn't even know she'd said something.
James heard Nova speaking, loud and clear, and he did his very best to ignore it as he sat in his corner of the room. His face showed his irritation at the question, though he didn't say anything. He didn't move at all, keeping his back pressed against the wall.
He had carefully counted out the steps it took him to get to this corner, his favorite corner. If he moved, the whole routine would be thrown off. It would be ruined, he would be lost, and he would have to ask for help. Which was something he had absolutely no intention of doing.
Jake materialized in the room with a glow of green. He wiped blood away from his nose and collapsed on the floor, leaning against the wall as he sat down. "There's too much magnetic pull." He said. "I keep on ending up in the basement." He wondered what new device Dr. Rhone had installed to keep him grounded here. The last one he managed to dismantle, but this new one was incredibly difficult to find, maybe it worked remotely. Jake knew he was dying, his insides often felt like jelly. He sure as he.ll didn't want to spend his last days here like a lab rat.
Tobi jumped slightly when a knew stream of thoughts murmured in her brain, it was Jake she could tell by the color.
Tobi looked up and looked around the room studying each person, she didn't know what anyone had just said becuase she hadn't look at them in time.
She noticed some blood around Jake's nose, he seeme dto get nos ebleeds a lot these days.
