I decided to make us an OOC where we can chat about anything story related.
First up our characters ^.^
Jason Johnathan Jessner | Mutant name:
20 | Gender:
Male | Nationality:
: “ Omnilinguism - the ability to speak and understand any language fluently”
He automatically understands and can speak, write, and read all languages, including sign language, braille, and every dialect. Also can talk to some animals like dolphins, gorillas, chimpanzees, and some birds.
“ Indestructibility - the ability to defy all forms of physical injury”
He cannot be harmed physically in any way. Bullets, knives, bites, and scratches, blunt force, and any other possible physical harm is completely ignored. Bones are not broken, and cannot be dislocated or fractured.
“ Oxygen Independence - the ability to survive without oxygen”
He does not need air to breathe, therefore, he can survive the vacuum of space or in rooms with no air and underwater.
He can't feel anything physically. Cold, heat, pain, pleasure. All void. Imagine when your arm goes numb, but without the tingling. Also not feeling anything has caused a lot of depression, but he deals with it for the most part. He is also susceptible to mental attack.
Basket-weaving and tent-pitching.
Quite athletic, very well-read, clever. He is shy, though. He hates when people touch him because he can't feel it, and he hates when people try to get to know him. Organized. He owns an extensive library of books in a multitude of languages.
Katerina Petrova | Mutant name:
None as of yet
20 | Gender:
Female | Nationality:
: “ Precognitive dreaming - the ability to perceive future events while dreaming ”
She is able to foresee possible futures and observe what may happen. As knowledge of the future invariably causes that future to change, visions of the future are subject to frequent shifting. At best these dreams may assist in selecting possible courses of action.
“ Fear inducement - the ability to evoke extreme fear and horror in others ”
She can make people unwillingly very frightened. She can manipulate their perception and make them see their environment as ominous and portray herself as a dark and foreboding entity. This ability stems from latent mental manipulation powers. When she uses this ability her pupils dilate turning her eyes completely black.
Drawbacks/weaknessess: “Don't think you'll be able to hurt me.”
Her greatest weakness isn't even related to her abilities. She's just unable to trust anyone completely. Doubts and fears always prevent her from fully handing over control. Her precognitive dreaming behaves like a reverse memory, wherein the nearest futures or most important future events are the most vivid. She's unable to remember every detail which often causes her to experience a sense of déjà vu. Dreams that do not involve her make it difficult for her to find out what she is supposed to do with it. She needs to make eye contact for her fear inducing abilities to work.
Non-Mutant Skills: “Life is like playing a piano solo in public and learning the instrument as you go on.”
Katerina is very resourceful and knows how to take care of herself through experience. She was raised to be independent knowing there wasn’t always going to be someone to take care of her. She is trained in classical piano but rarely ever plays anymore. It was never something she enjoyed and she only carried on with her lessons because her mother persisted. Physically she is in good shape and aside from yoga she doesn’t practice any other sports.
Personality: “Trust is earned I can’t just magically hand it over.”
Katerina has always had a hard time trusting people especially men. It’s not that she doesn’t want to but there is always this impending fear of betrayal. Family is extremely important to her and she’ll go to any length to support them. She’s hard to get close to but once you’ve managed to earn her trust you’ll find she’s compassionate and kind. A friend who knows all about you and still likes you. To those who don’t know her she can come across as secretive and mysterious. A prejudice she’ll easily let you believe if she doesn’t care enough about you to prove you wrong.
Background: "I tend to know what's going to happen"
Katerina grew up in a small town in Bulgaria together with her two older brothers and mother. They weren’t rich and everyone needed to get “creative” to make ends meet. Both of her brothers worked while she and her mother took care of the house which was often packed with nieces and nephews to look after. Having only little money to spend staying together became the most important thing to them. She was raised in this tight knit of a family and it taught her to always be there for the people you cared about as they would do the same in return. She took a job at the local antique store. The pay was reasonable but she gave most if not all of her money to her mother because she struggled to pay for her education. Her abilities were to put it nicely inconvenient. Her family accepted her unconditionally but were afraid of what might happen to her. They needed answers. Katerina never thought much of it and didn’t know the first thing about mutants. She traveled to America to find answers. She left relying on her brothers to take care of the family until she would be able to come back.
