James William Knight
182 Cm tall. 72 KG heavy. He's fit but still slender.
He has a tattoo of a Pokéball
on his left forearm.
He have super human metabolism, giving him enhanced physical capabilities.
However, it requires him to consume great amounts of food to keep his energy running.
Enhanced Physical Prowess:
Enhanced strength, agility, reflexes, speed and dexterity. All of it is pseudo-Super-human. He's not super-strong, and he still needs to exercise to keep his muscles working. He is able to bench press 400 KG. He can lift about half of that over his head. His agility could be likened to that of a adept gymnast. His reaction time is approximately less than a second, similarly to a trained marksman. His speed is on par with your average Olympic sprinter.
Enhanced Healing Factor:
About four times the natural human ability to regenerate.
He also regains his stamina quicker, which allows him to keep in physical stress for a great portion of time.
Passively gives him changed luck. Either good, or bad. It's never big things, like winning on the lotto, but it can be such things like making himself stumble, often it's a combination of the two, leading to himself believing himself to be the luckiest loser on the planet.
He is one nice, shy little nerd. Who'd usually sit around with his video-games, not paying much attention to much else than what High-Score to beat next. He is very sweet and kind, and is definitely not one to seek trouble. Yet, somehow, trouble keeps on finding him. Be it some thug breaking into his house, who got a little more than he bargained for.
Being a mutant hasn't changed James personality all that much, he's both scared of his powers, but also very excited over them. During his time at the institute, he have found it to be a very pleasant stay. There have been no real trouble, some people have been dicks to him, even here. But he have learned how to manage that. He is pretty smart, and is above average in history and science, and if it wasn't for how easily distracted he is from focusing, he could probably been good at Math, too.
Born in Lawrence, Kansas. His father a construction worker, and his mother a writer. They made a decent earnings, enough to race James, whom was the sole child, at least. James's childhood was fairly normal, despite the fact that he was bullied in school, he were rather chubby as a child, and it kept him from playing with the rest of the kids, as he simply couldn't keep up with them. When he came into high-school, he suddenly began losing weight, in the span of four months, with some minor physical activity, he had dropped to a slim-fit, on the border of skinny from his previously fat self.
No one could really explain this, how could he have lost this much weight, when he kept eating the same, and with very little exercise. No doctor could make sense of this, except for one man, a bald man in a wheel-chair. Professor Charles Xavier, whom had explained to James and his parents how James's body had changed so much. He had explained how James's X-gene had become active, and that, thanks to equipment he have at his institute, he could locate James's signature when he had began his metamorphos. But Charles had been curious, and had waited to see what would become of the young mutant, as well as to be able to use the act to his advantage in the argument, because face it, people don't like it when you claim that their child is a mutant.
After a couple of days, James and his parents had decided that he would go to the institute, and so he did. One october day when he was only 15 years old. Since then, he have stayed there, and is getting along great with the staff, and even with few of the students. He is even practicing the use of his powers. However, at times, he still misses home.
He have been in contact with Nick Fury for quite some time, this is in secret though, and the only one who knows about this, safe for himself and Nick, is Charles Xavier. Reason that Fury has gotten in contact with James, is because his mutation is essentially the same as the Super-Soldier serum, the project that gave us Captain America in the 40's.
The sole reason that James even decided to set his foot in the institute. Sure, Professor X was kind of a hard-ass at time, his 150 minutes long lecture of photosynthesis wasn't exactly the light off James's life, luckily, James had his DS, to keep him company. He respects Charles, and sees him like an older brother, or the smart uncle that always came with the best presents on Christmas. He is the one who connected James to Nick Fury, and to SHIELD, and the one who advised James to keep this relation quiet. He is usually bugging the professor for his past relations to the terrorist Magneto, but is always dismissed with some half-assed answer.
James's relationship to Nick isn't exactly healthy, no. Nick have put him up to some tests, athletically and mentally, and he have indeed made sure that James's mutation is similar to the Super Soldier-program. Only that James's powers seems to be at a slightly lower level. Nick is utterly disgusted by James's lack of discipline, and how he have no interest at all in taking up the mantle left by Rogers to serve his country.
Probably the one in Staff that gets him. Despite how mysterious she is, it doesn't matter to James, James has been a lonely child his entire life, and Tessa is probably as close to a big-sister as he has ever had. He always enjoys her company, and whenever she speaks, he actually tries to pay attention. He always enjoys her little "Daily Adventures" and all of the things she comes up with. James is forever grateful for Wednesday Game-Night. Despite the fact that every night is game night for this young mutant. He constantly refers to her as Tess. Tess is also helping him get his driving License.
Hank is a friend of James, James do enjoy having science lessons with Hank, even if he doesn't pay as much attention to the young teacher, as he does to Tessa whenever she talks. He finds Hanks powers amusing, to say the least, and never fails to be impressed by them. He and Hank sometimes plays 1 on 1 at the Basket Ball Court, Hank always trying to apply physics to their matches, as physical exercise, like games, actually focuses the young boy.
Jean is fun, she's popular, but she's never a tease, or mean to James, like all of the other people like her he had met in his past had been. He enjoys Jean's company, whenever he's not in the middle of kicking some dude in Italy's ass in Modern Warfare 3. He enjoys sitting around with Jean talking about things, he likes to try to figure out more about her past, while, he's also a little scared what would happen if she'd find out about James's connections to SHIELD, heck, for all he knew, she already had read his mind enough to know about it.
" The Latina Hurricane", is what James thinks of Estella. She's nice and like Jean, not a tease, despite being one of the more popular girls, but she also turns everything into a mess once she gets into his room. One second, everything's nice and dandy, like James wants it, his bag of snacks on the side of the sofa, the controller in his hand, the TV on in front of him. And then BAM, Estella's in the room, she plays for a while, and twentie minutes later, his room looks like the zone of world war three. James, do however enjoy playing Video Games with her, despite how frustrated she gets she never quits trying to beat him, and occassionaly, he let's her, maybe just because he likes to see her smile.
Needless to say, he have a crush on her, but he's denying this at all cost.
Well organized, loved by basically every person on Campus, a few exceptions. He's excellent at everything he does, and the typical Mister.Perfect. He's everything James is not. James isn't so much jealous of him, as he respects him. To him, Scott is the jock that decided that James wasn't worth his time, thought, surely, from time to time, they might meet on the track, or in the gym when either of them are working out. He reminds him of a boy from his past, a football player, whom had been the coolest dude in school when James went to middle-school.
The person ,whom, to James, seems to have aimed her life to make his life as pestered as possible. Like her sole mission is life, is to make James's day to shit. Why? He have no idea. Maybe she didn't like his Tattoo? However, she also cheers him up, for whenever James feels like he have bad luck, he thinks of Olivia Rush, whom was so appropriately named, and what her story for coming to the institute is, it cannot help but bring a smile to his lips.
James, might very well have been Kenji's first American friend. The two of them met one day when James sat, casually playing Pokemon, and was looking for someone to battle. Surprisingly enough, he found someone on the Lan-Router,and battled them. Much to his surprise, his team got their asses kicked. From there on, their friendship blossomed, all things James knew about Anime and Manga suddenly wasn't so trivial, his addiction to the Pokemon games, that oh, so many teased him about had suddenly been found acceptable by a kindered spirit. On top of that, Kenji helped him fend off people who were mean to him, as he was both foreign and looked like a total bad-ass.
Where to even begin? Chris, the only person at the entire institute that James whole heartily enjoys hanging out with. James has had a bad-day, and just wanna enjoy a nice gaming session? Guess who invites himself in and brings a pack of cola, and his own Controller? (This alone gives him great score in James's book.) Despite coming in uninvited, James doesn't mind, not at all. He and Chris can goof around an entire day, and at the end of the day, they can still have a heart to heart about things, how they feel about people on the institute, which girls are the hottest, or what game looks the most promising from the latest convention.
One of those people that James just haven't paid enough attention to. Her powers seems really cool, but that's basically all there is to it, she does seem like she's very interested in just learning about her powers, and not so much about interacting with the gamer-geek on campus. But on the other hand, the fact that so many put time and effort into noticing him, on good or bad, was still more than he had hoped for. No doubt about it though, she is nice on the eyes.
