Name: Angelica "Angel" Jones
Code name (If Applicable): Firestar
Mutant Ability: Ability to absorb low level radiation from her environment and re-emit them in concentrated microwave bursts. She can melt, explode, or burn objects, and can fly by superheating the air around her. She can also sense objects using microwaves and disrupt their signals.
Personality: Firestar is a naturally kind and moral person who only wants to be accepted and in control of her powers, however, she is not above trying to hurt someone defensively if they threaten something or someone dear to her. She is extremely loyal to someone who has earned her trust or affection, however, because of the extreme lengths she is willing to go to protect those she loves, she is slow to form attachments to other people. She has a tendency to follow and trust authority figures, and strongly prefers to be a follower, not a leader. She feels a strong need to be liked, and is not outspoken.
[Also, is it just me, or are we getting rather similar contradictory personalities in here?]
History: Angelica was raised by her single father and paternal grandmother in an suburban neighborhood. She doesn't have friends at her school because of her unusual family situation, but had been reassured by her grandmother (who she adores) that things will be fine because Angelica is a very special person, as evidenced by the M on Angelica's palm. However, the school bullies happily pointed out that everyone had an M on their palm, which didn't make Angelica special at all.
Angelica is upset over the discovery of her powers, as the day that she discovered them was also the day her beloved grandmother died of a heart attack. She blames herself for her grandmother's heart attack, as she believes the microwaves that she was emitting had interfered with the battery of her grandmother's pacemaker, which allowed her heart to stop. Her father is upset and confused over Angelina's reveal as well, and while he doesn't openly blame Angelica for the grandmother's hear attack, he can't convince himself that it wasn't Angelica's fault, either.
Both of them are rather relieved when Xavier showed up at their home with an offer to train Angelica to control her powers. While Angelica is nervous about being accepted among her fellow mutants, she is far more worried about losing control of herself again and hurting someone on accident.
(In Cannon, Firestar is recruited by Emma Frost. Is there a way I can work the Frost/Xavier competition into Angelica's storyline, or should I leave that out, for now?)
Edit: Oh, and she likes animals.
Angelica hero worships Xavier, and instinctively turns to him for guidance. She takes his approvals and disapprovals to heart, and tries her hardest to live up to and beyond his standards. If the Professor asked her to do a drill ten times, Angelica would do it eleven times, just to make sure she had tried hard enough. Angelica doesn’t always understands the reasons for the Professor’s actions, but she loyally trusts him to do the right and moral thing. She doesn’t try to monopolize the Professor’s time, but she often feels that if she spent more time in his instruction, she would be able to understand her powers better than she does. She continually feels grateful that Xavier has chosen her to attend the institute, and would do almost anything to keep from disappointing him or being kicked out. She calls him Professor Xavier.
Angelica enjoys spending time in Tessa’s company, seeing her as the big sister that Angelica never had. She looks forward to the fun times that Tessa plans, and is glad that Tessa is around to act as a balancing agent to Xavier’s seriousness. Angelica wishes that she could talk to Tessa about everyday problems or concerns that she has, but due to Tessa’s busy schedule often feels slightly intimidated to asking Tessa to sit down and talk to her, as Angelica does not want to be wasting Tessa’s precious time. Angelica is slightly envious of Tessa’s obvious longstanding friendship with the professor, and occasionally wonders if it might have been something more.
Angelica can relate to him easiest out of the instructors. She is in admiration of both his intelligence and his apparent comfortableness with his mutant status. She has no problems going to ask him for help with her class work, and thinks he is a great teacher. She’s a proud member of the Hank McCoy fanclub. She’s not sure what someone like Mr. McCoy is doing as a teacher, but very glad that Mr. McCoy works at the institute.
Angelica is in awe of Jean Grey, and has said so out loud at least once. Angelica sees Jean Grey as the kind of girl that she ought to be, and picks the fellow red head as a kind of role model to follow. The two of them remain on rather good and friendly terms, and Angelica would like to be closer friends, but is intimidated by what she perceives as Jean’s perfection.
((Am I going to get shot if I wonder if Jean counts as a Mary-Sue?))
Angelica isn’t sure what to think of Estella Rey, and trouble relating to her. She’s willing to go to Estella for academic help, but otherwise Angelica is not sure what the two of them have in common. She doesn’t actively avoid Estella, but doesn’t try to spend extended periods of time around her if she can help it. Angelica is sure that they’d get along better if they opened up more to each other and found more things that they could relate to each other on, but she unsure if she should be the one to make the first move.
Scott is the boss, and not much else. Angelica sees him as the inherent leader of the group, other than Professor X, and willingly obeys orders during training exercise without question. In social situation however, she’s not sure she wants to hang around him, as he seems rather uptight and blunt. Overall, she respects him for who he is, but is still nervous of his attitude.
Hands down, Olivia kind of freaks Firestar out. Angelica cannot understand Olivia’s inhumanness, and lack of a moral center. While she feels sorry for Olivia and can relate to the parent’s rejection of her mutant self, Angelica is afraid to get close to her. She maintains a tolerant attitude towards her, but wouldn’t not miss Olivia if Olivia left the institute. She does not understand why Professor X allowed Olivia to join, but assumes that given Olivia’s personality, it was probably to help Olivia control her powers as well.
Angelica would say that James is a friend of hers, as their personalities are rather similar. She likes talking to him outside of class about random things, if she can even get him to pay attention to her. Sometimes she’ll just sit and watch him play games. She’s working up to asking him to teach her how to play, but she’s still a bit too shy to ask. She admires his intelligence, and thinks it’s kind of cute that he’s so shy, like her.
She thinks he looks strange, and still does, but she’s more used to it by now. She calls him Kenji, and finds him a bit fascinating. His powers seem really complicated, but she just likes the cat. She will make excuses to spend time around him just to pet the cat, even though she’s not interested in conversation. She’s working up the nerve to ask him how to teach her how to do the meditation, as she suspects it may help her control her own powers as well.
CHRISTOPHER LEE GRYPHON
Angelica doesn’t know what to think Chris. She feels a bit uncomfortable when he shows off, and wishes he would calm down and be sensible. Yes, he’s a funny character, but it seems like he doesn’t care enough. She doesn’t have anything against him, for he’s rather nice and friendly, even if it’s an absent minded sort of friendly. She can’t make her mind up about him. It doesn’t help that she thinks he’s kinda cute.

Never consider yourself a ugly person, consider yourself a beautiful monkey.
Name: Olivia “Delay” Rush
Time Manipulation; the ability to slow down the course of time to a near halt; furthermore, Olivia’s aging is exponential, i.e. near eternal. Her mutation has a physical defect as well - her eyes have no pupils.
Olivia was born to Nicolas and Janet Rush, in the becalming spring breeze of May, eighteen years ago. She was brought up in a family of great pride, beauty, genteelness and eloquence; a family living the American Dream. In the early stages of young Olivia’s life her parents detected a few anomalies in her behavior, which were different from other children in the neighborhood. Affrighted, the parents appointed a behavioral therapist to analyze Olivia, however, there was nothing wrong with her – it was simply her personality. Olivia’s parents took to their own measure and made sure to suppress this strange behavior with excess material attention. As a child, Olivia was seen in a few high-profile commercials, she received the greatest and most valuable gifts during celebrations, she became an all-star cheerleader, and she was the most popular juvenile in her town.
Before Olivia’s transcendence she was quite a monster, to be literal. She was an attention craving slut that had no remorse in destroying the lives of others by the means of her infallible whims. Her parents had shaped her to become an alpha female, the best there is, brainwashing her with their doctrine and detest for imperfection. She was the star of the show, all day; every day.
Shortly after turning sixteen the worst that could possibly happen to the Rush family, happened. By unknown means, Olivia woke up one morning only to find her appearance altered; the pupils in her eyes had dissolved and merged with her bright blue iris in a constant state of timeless motion. Her parents were horrified by the event, seeking the help of the best experts that money could buy. Alas, what they had feared from the very beginning was true, as one doctor began to theorize about the controversial and relatively unknown mutant phenomenon. Olivia had become what her parents had taught her not to be – a social reject. As an act of disappointment, a few weeks later, her parents disowned Olivia; an extreme action by fanatical people. In this emotional state of despair, Olivia’s mutation fully blossomed.
The person beneath the shell that Olivia’s parents had put so much effort into suppressing had now fully awakened - an apathetic misanthropist with traits of fanaticism and wrath. Charles Xavier did not find Olivia, nor did Olivia find Charles, they found each other through a “cosmic symbiosis”, whatever that might imply. He saw her lack of interest for mankind, her brooding anger, and the severity of her extreme gift if ever put to use against all that is good. Olivia is not rude, nor is she hateful towards other people, she simply cannot see them in the same way that other people do; this is Xavier’s challenge, to make Olivia human again, the right way, and prevent her anger from falling into the wrong hands where it might be manipulated.
Charles Xavier is probably the only person (mutant) with any considerable weight of influence on Olivia. The respect that Charles deserves has been given to him by Olivia through the myriad sessions they’ve had together where Charles has fathomed Olivia’s timeless nature, and the fact that her mind and body plausibly has endured several life-times already. Their relationship is not entirely platonic, however, Olivia has on few occasions suggested, through subtle means, physical attraction towards Charles, alas, it has gone ignored for the sake of her still uncertain future within the school and the fact that she is a student; which personality of Olivia’s that has this affection is unclear. It is possible that Charles and Olivia both realize that she is as likely to join Magneto in his cause as she is to stay with Charles.
This person is a nurse, who has been appointed to keep track of the children in a school for rejects. If Olivia has learned one thing from being able to acquire limitless knowledge about the arts of the world without paying with her life, then it is to carefully "pick your battles"; this one is merely a vessel for the whims of a greater power. The nurse’s mundane but outrageously superfluous extracurricular activities that she forces everyone to participate in irritates Olivia beyond recognition; even if the course of a particular “Friday Night Pizza” only lasted for an evening, it lasted an entire month for Olivia, having to slow things down in order to occupy her mind with other things as a “break” from the nurse.
Contrary to popular belief Olivia does not actually despise Hank, surely such was the case in the beginning, but as a wise old man once said: “time heals all wounds”. With near limitless amounts of time on her hands Olivia has little to do but to read and acquire knowledge, even if this occupation was the mother of all banes prior to her current “condition”. Hank is an acceptable “human” being as he can facilitate a great portion of information that Olivia cannot understand on her own, however, this is his only respect. When Olivia has any of her fluctuation of personality shifts Hank is a primary target of insult.
This number reminds Olivia of the person that she was brought up by her parents to be, which both infuriates and comforts Olivia. Jean’s presence increases the chances of personality shifts in Olivia, oscillating between the fanatic misanthropist and the radiant prom queen bitch, both of which has their pros and cons. Due to this chaotic symbiosis between the two it is not recommended that they spend a great deal of time together. In Olivia’s misanthropist state Jean is a plague that she cannot stand for two seconds, but when the queen bee emerges Jean is the “best friend ever”.
This is a henchman of Jean Grey, and depending on Olivia’s state of personality either her worst nightmare or team player number one. On one side of the coin this spawn of the devil thinks she is so great and everyone’s favorite; “Hank McCoy Fanclub”, what a fucking joke. On the other side of the coin, however, she is one of the prettiest darlings that ever trod on the face of this Earth and is the perfect subject for a girl-talk when and if Olivia is in the correct “mood”. Furthermore, Estella is the only one that has fallen victim for one of Olivia’s worst display of questionable behavior; Olivia once attempted to tap her “cosmic” perception of time and space into Stella to make her see what Olivia sees all the time. Even if the attempt failed it landed Olivia a severe lecturing from Charles and a week worth of “detention work”.
Even if Olivia and Scott are marginally similar in their physical mutation it is no secret that Olivia uses Scott to annoy Jean, and vice versa. This man takes himself too seriously which goes well with one part of Olivia, although not so well with the other. During one of Olivia’s seduction attempts on Scott she revealed that she had, during class, removed his sunglasses, while slowing down time to a near halt, while Scott was positioned directly behind Jean. Scott did not take this revelation lightly, alas, could not prove that it had happened, but it sure sounded like something that “queen” Olivia would do.
James, similarly to Hank, is a prime target for the witty insults of Olivia Rush. He is one of those people that will never be compatible with Olivia; prior to her condition she frequently participated in football players’ evil schemes to degrade the morale of “nerds”. Olivia isn’t as much of a split personality as people would be led to believe, in most cases she can fully control who she wants to be; split personality disorder is just a myth. If it wasn’t for the fact that James is roughly twenty centimeters taller than Olivia, and that he is basically superman, her cruelty would know no bounds.
Another weirdo, from Japan nonetheless, that does what? Who? To Olivia Kenji is simply “that Asian kid” who she rigorously attempt to disrupt in order to see his freak power go haywire and explode, or whatever it is that makes him look even more a freak than usual. If Olivia wasn’t such an asshole she could probably learn a thing or two from him and his Ki ability in order to further understand, control, and perhaps even progress in her own.
Christopher Lee Gryphon
“Honor among Thieves” is an expression that falls well between Olivia and Chris, this arrogant prick sure knows how to annoy people, which grants him a pass from Olivia’s sometimes inappropriate attitude. Due to this strange sense of alliance Charles implicitly advocates interaction between Olivia and Chris as his thesis is that it might eventually tip Olivia over and make her become a “nicer” person towards everyone. Along with Kenji, Chris is one of the few that has suffered the least amount of abuse from Olivia.
The third of the three musketeers along with Jean and Estelle. Angelica is the polar opposite to Olivia, they are Day & Night, Light & Dark, as such Olivia is as likely to attack her as she is the enemy; however, as long as Olivia sides with Charles she'll not intentionally hurt someone physically... "physically". It's no secret that Olivia has her problems, but a person like Angelica is a positive influence on her by being a person of unspoiled benignity. If Olivia's condition ever changed, which she doubts it will, Angelica would be one of the first she would apologize to and befriend; contrary, if Olivia ever were to leave the Mansion and Charles' operations, Angelica would be one of the first she'd dispose of.

Name: Kenji Mori, nickname "Ninji" or "Nin"
Code name (If Applicable): Voodoo Ninja
Mild (with Nia):
Normal (with or without the wing, depending):
Mutation: Ki Control - Ninji can control his own energy levels aka his ki, meaning the more confident and positive he is the stronger they'll become; however, it can become too strong through negativity as well. The difference between positive and negative ki is the positive will not corrupt his body and cause it to explode wildly. Positive ki will attack his enemy's energy, causing damage to them yet not cutting them physically: negative ki will damage everything and anything. If Ninji wants to prevent killing he's not to keep it positive, otherwise he may become unstable. While he uses blades in battle, they are used to lock away his ki and when unsheathed they become his primary means to use his ki. They will damage his opponents spiritually and sap their energy with the blue blade feeling icy cold and the red blade as hot as fire; however, they too do not cause physical damage unless Ninji is oozing with negativity. His ki can be controlled by other energy manipulators while any ki damage he does means pain for him, depending on the level of harm caused.
Flight - Ninji's Ki level also allows him to fly at high speeds, leaving a trail of blue energy behind him; however, he has to be careful not to crash as that will cause heavy ki damage to himself, even if he does appear shielded by his ki. It is difficult to turn without stopping.
Linked Soul - Ninji's black cat, Nia, is a fragment of his soul, sharing his ki. While the cat is just a fragment of his soul, it reflects his emotions pretty well and may become ferocious looking if his ki becomes negative and wild, changing into a Nekomata that gets larger overtime. While his cat cannot die unless he does, any damage done to the cat will cause pain to Ninji so if Ninji ever does get out of control, it'd be easier to beat down on his cat than trying to get near him. His cat very rarely appears when he is not using his abilities and always disappears when he flies. As a Nekomata, the cat's tail splits in two and it transforms into pure ki energy. The Nekomata can't attack, but will flee and can appear scary for some. His cat has an intelligence of its own and will keep away from battles if they become intensive.
Personality: Ninji has a cool and collective side to him, yet also a teasing and sinister persona depending on his level of ki. It is easy to tell when he has too much negative ki built up inside him, even in his normal form he appears to be angry and unstable; of course, if he's pleasant to talk to then you know that you don't have to worry. Ninji isn't lazy in a sense that he pays attention to his work and gets tasks done when asked, but he does appear to be lazy physically. This laziness has to do with low ki levels, so if he appears to be sleeping a lot, playing video games or generally lazing about and not talking much, it's easy to tell that he's low and needs some sort of spiritual stimulation. He's quite into his meditation and pays attention to his negative ki build-up through that, but can end up forgetting if he has too much on his mind. Even without his ki influencing him, he can appear very short tempered and protective if you get on his bad side.
History: In an attempt to build up relationships between countries and schools, Xavier Institute began to bring in more students from the far ends of the earth to help fellow mutants control their abilities. Ninji was one such student taken from Japan, his real name being Kenji Mori. Due to the nature of his abilities and financial situation back in his hometown, he showed the potential to become a destructive member of society making him a primary candidate to be taken to the US under a lengthy student visa. The conclusion that his abilities may make him destructive and hasty to join the darker side of mutant society was his personality was heavily influencing his powers, meaning he may become unstable and emotionally crippled to the good of normal human society. It was very easy for somebody like him to wish to eliminate normal human kind when his abilities warped his mindset, but through a lot of talks between him, his parents and the Xavier Institute, he was convinced to go to the US and discover the brilliance of the Xavier Institute.
Ninji wasn't special or anything, he was just seen as a concern to himself and others while carrying the potential to do great things. His mutant abilities manifested not long ago through trauma after the Great Tsunami struck while he was at school, splitting his soul into different particles to form his blades, his strange physical mutation while a fragment of his soul took the form of a black cat. The cat was the strangest part, yet its role in Ninji's beliefs and mutation makes it easier to understand to those who wish to understand it. The nature of the trauma and his powers were sure to split his ki in such a fashion produced a need to protect in positive ki through the form of double blades while his negative ki became a haunting Japanese spirit animal. The crippling effects his mutation and event produced were fairly evident now and with no school to go to and his hometown destroyed, he was forced to seek help before the worst occurred.
It was just little over a year since all this occurred and since Ninji arrived at Xavier's Institute, learning English and getting his grades up as well as taking part in mutant activities and experiments involving his mutant ability. While energy manipulation isn't a unique and rare ability, his form appears to be very strange and definitely different from others yet comes with all the hiccups. His involvement with the Institute and the other students is exceedingly important for both him and his existence outside education as his mutant abilities continue to grow and threaten his humanity.

"Baby you're not anybody's fool."
Order of the (spacey) Advanced Roleplayer
Wondering if I could throw in a colossus-type character, but with some power tweaks.
- - - Updated - - -
Name: Pete Kalashnikov
Code name (If Applicable): Colossus
Steel Skin: He has a thick layer of pliable steel where his skin should be. Even his hair is steel cords. He cannot turn the steel back to flesh. Pete has enhanced strength and endurance, and can take hits most others can't.
Momentum: Once Pete gains momentum, it is extremely hard to stop him. A few feet of solid steel, or some adamantine would do the trick quite well though.
Personality: Normally, Pete tries to be the nice guy. Friends are very important to him, and loyal to a fault. However, there have been times when someone says just the wrong thing, and have on the wrong end of a steel punch.
History: Pete was raised as the first child of his family born in the US. They had migrated from Russia, and settled in a small farming town in Tennessee. The boy grew up working the land with his father during the day, and playing with the few children that lived close by in the evenings. His father always told him "Friends are your greatest treasure, and your greatest advantage,". It wasn't unusual for him to be the first to take up for his friends, regardless of if they were right or wrong. These tendencies landed Pete in more than his share of trouble, and eventually forced his parents to home school him. A little after his fifteenth birthday, Pete became deathly ill. The local doctor was completely stumped as to why the young boy's skin had taken on a silver hue and cold to the touch, but he was running a hundred and five degree fever. The fact he was still breathing was considered miraculous. The second night of the illness, his parents were about to call an ambulance to take him to the closest hospital, which was about two hours away, when they heard horrible screams from his room. They rushed in to see their child, covered head to toe in metal. Pete turned to his parents and the doctor, all three were staring in shock. The doctor was the first one to approach Pete, putting the stethoscope to the boy's chest. He could hear a heartbeat, and the fever was rapidly going down. His parents were just relieved their child had survived, and didn't flinch at his appearance after that night.
It took a while to adjust to this new skin. He even became so bold as to try gently poking his hand with a pocket knife. When his palm didn't give to the blade, he stabbed down hard. The blade broke in half, leaving not a scratch. There were other developments as well. His father soon figured out Pete could pull a plow nearly as fast as his tractor. Even obstructions like large rocks buried in the ground were either pushed aside, or split in two, but he didn't slow in the least. His secret finally became public after some of his old school friends dropped by for a surprise visit. Some of them refused to even go near him, and quickly left claiming they didn't want to be infected with freak. Two remained, though, and they looked over his appearance to the old friend they knew. They even tried to persuade his parents to enroll him back in school so he could play for the football team. Eventually, word got out about Pete, and people started flocking to his parent's farm. Most just gawked at the boy, muttering slurs under their breath for fear of him hearing. Others wanted to use him to make money on TV, or movies, or whatever. They outright refused, saying their son was NOT going to be exploited for someone else's wallet. A few years passed, and the stream of spectators dwindled.
One day, a very cordial man appeared at their door, asking to speak to the family about a new school for people with special gifts like Pete's. The man was Charles Xavier, and it took him little time to convince his mother and father their son would be properly cared for. The brochure pictured a mansion, with lush rooms, a huge kitchen, and spacious outdoors facilities. Not to mention the classes that would help him to utilize his gifts for his own reasons. Pete was a harder sell though, wanting to stay in his town, and with his friends. Professor Xavier spent the better part of two hours talking about the other students that would be in the school, and the gifts they possesed. After some sagely nodding from his father, and his mother threatening him with a rolling pin if he didn't take this opportunity, he relented and agreed to attending the school.
Also, every time I picture this character in my head, this is what I hear.

It's funny because if Pete and Ninji both get in, Pete will have a massive advantage over Ninji in battle while Ninji will have an advantage with speed: Ninji wouldn't be able to get through that skin of his to deal damage but just needs to move fast to avoid Pete.
