So i'm reviving this one more time. this RP will be originally set in Manhattan NY vicinity and we'll make our way to washington DC. This set in an alternate universe where there was no xavier, jean, scott etc.
In light of the powers some mutants recieved, the scared government made an offer. You could either accept the "gift" of getting normal again/or if your power was useful enough, using your power to round up mutants. If you denied the government that, they would either kill you or remove your power by force.
It's kind of communistic state controlled by a misc of anti mutant hunters and a mutant boosted police.
You can choose which side you'd like, although if you choose the govt side you'll probably be sandboxing for a bit.
if you need more info please refer to the int chk.
Gov't or X-men:
Name: Marc Willems
Gov't or X-men: Government
Personality: Marc likes to keep to himself and tries to avoid busy areas. Once you get to know he's very friendly.
-Superhuman Vision: Marc is able to see objects from great distances away and when he concentrates he's able to magnify his vision. He's also able to see UV and IR as well night vision.
-Superhuman Hearing: Able to hear sounds from a great distance. Also able to hear sounds that are inaudible to humans, either because of frequency or loudness. With enough concentration he's able to pick out sounds.
-Superhuman Smell: Able to pick up traces other humans wouldn't perceive.
-Superhuman Taste: Able to taste traces other humans wouldn't pick up.
-Superhuman Touch: Able to feel the slightest vibrations and temperature changes.
Unfortunately, Marc isn't able to process this. He is usually in extreme pain due to being overstimulated. He is forced to wear clothes that cover his entire body, earplugs and sunglasses.
Power detection and recognition: Marc knows when people have powers and what they do.
History: Marc grew up pretty normal, though his hearing and sight were above average. As he grew, so did his senses. At the age of 17 though, it became unbearable. He was aware of every single thing that happened around him. A dimmed light in the darkness would blind him. He wasn't able to hear anything if two people were talking at the same time and the slightest touch against his bare skin would leave him crying from pain. At first he was able to suppress this by using painkillers or alcohol, but these began losing their effectiveness. Eventually he was hospitalized.
Here he was approached by the government, which promised him to cure him from his pains if he'd work for them, searching for mutants. He hesitantly agreed. The government kept to their word and supplied him with a serum that didn't intervene with his mutant ability, but had to be taken in regularly.
Other: Marc is nearly always in pain. He has developed an addiction to painkillers, alcohol and the government serum.
Name: Caleb Idlett
Power: Power over sound, has the power to increase sound to a physical amount creating shockwaves from his mouth, hands, feet, or however he makes the sound. This goes really well with his wing-chun fighting style where he can hit someone and cause a miniture shockwave to hurt them even more.
xmen, or Govt: undecided
personality: loyal and friendly but can be easily angered
History: Caleb was an ordinary person until the day he found his best friend cheating kissing his girlfriend. He grew so angry and rage built up inside of him. There was a pressure as he yelled at his now ex-best friend, the pressure grew as his emotions got more and more heated. His friend tried to calm him down but a final, "ENOUGH!" from Caleb released a shockwave that smashed his friend into the building and causing a huge hole in the building. Caleb was scared, so he ran, he ran as far as he could hiding anywhere that he could find a place to hide. But he realized that to survive he would now have to use these powers, lest he be hunted and killed. So he ran into the forest and to a place which seemed deserted, and it was there he practiced and practiced. It was in this forest he found out that he needed to keep a check on his emotions, and that he needed to be careful because there were times where it seemed almost uncontrollable. It did not help that he had motor and vocal tourettes, as it only made things worse at times, at least they aren't too bad, not enough to be constant at least. But Caleb learned to love his powers as best as he could, just like he learned to deal with his tourettes, it's not like he could change it, and even though he could, this was apart of him now, this was a part of who he is. So he sits and waits, and waits for someone to contact him for someone else to tell him that they too have powers and that they too understand him.
other: nothing for now
Name: Nikklaus X (no last name)
Gov't or X-men: X-men
Personality: Nikklaus is a compassionate soul who can't sit idly by when ohers suffer. He feels burdened by his power, wishing he could heal everyone humans and mutants alike. He is calm but is prone to letting depression eat him up inside. He's most often quiet, but never is he angry. He feels sorrow that the government would look at almost all mutants as threats, and just wants to live in harmony.
Power: For now he has the ability to heal injuries.
History: check out the Int Chk
Name: Jean Bel
Gov't or X-men: X-Men
Personality: Jean is a silent, professional individual. He doesn't usually work with other people and when he does he says very little. He is rather strange and has some sort of personality disorder, he doesn't know what to say in a lot of situations.
Power: Weapon empowerment, Invisibility
History: Jean was born in France. His father was in the army and his mother was a baker. He usually stayed by himself during school and didn't have many friends. His teen years were the worst parts of his life. His father died in service and his mother fell into a deep depression. Jean didn't know how to make her feel better and seemed to only maker her mad and more depressed to the point where she took her own life. Jean was sent to an orphanage where he was bullied relentlessly until one day he fought back. Every now and then his father would return from service before he died and in that time he would teach Jean a few of the things he knew. It turns out he was a prodigy at the hand to hand and weapons aspect of the military and he put his knowledge to good use. He countered a punch from one of the bullies and stabbed him in the neck with a sharpened piece of wood.
He was sent to prison after that where he lived for the next 15 years of his life. In the prison he learnt a lot and got a lot of connections with the mob. After he was released his mafia friends sent him to America to do some work for their connections there. For the years up to when the government started seriously cracking down on the mutants he became a hitman. He used his powers to kill his targets in a more efficient manner. He knew he had to lay low after the government began killing or depowering mutants so he began to kill without using his powers.
Sam is 6'5" tall and weighs roughly 70kg.
He has short blonde hair and dark blue eyes.
He has a number of scars down his back, where he was whipped by his father.
Name: Samuel Hopkins
Gov't or X-men: X-Men
Sarcastic, Pessimistic and entirely cynical.
Finds it very difficult to see the good things in life.
Intellectually smart although he didn't listen at school.
Gravity Defying Acrobatics
Natural Ballistics (The ability to pick up any object (within reason, he doesn't have super strength, this ability would mainly be dealing with rocks, knives and the like) and throw it with almost perfect accuracy.... He just tells people he is good at darts...)
Born in Australia, Sam was like any normal child up until the age of twelve. When puberty set in, his powers started to emerge. He could run faster, jump higher and had vastly greater balance than his peers. They started picking on him around this point for being different. He honed his free running skills while trying to escape bullies on his way home from school each day, soon though they gave up with that tactic. It was then that they started to ambush him at the school gates in the morning. After a few days and a few beatings, Sam grew tired of the bullies and so one day in class, he decided to throw his pencil at one of the bullies's eye and he hit it dead center. Of course this behaviour got him expelled.
His father went into a fit of rage when he heard about what happened and that is when the whippings started. Sam was no longer allowed to attend school and his father treated him like dirt, "Because you are mutant scum" was his dad's favourite catch phrase for the next few years. His father did, however, make money out of him, as he took Sam down to the pub each day to win bets related to the game of darts. At the age of 16, after years of abuse, Sam decided he had had enough. He threw a dart at his father's crotch and ran away. He snuck aboard a shipping freighter being sent to the US and then made his way to Manhatten.
Allergic to Gluten
Chronic Migraine Sufferer
Likes Chinese food
Hates his father
Name: Adamina "Mina" Dancer
Gov't or X-men: Government
Personality: Before her powers manifested, Mina loved to socialize and was very outgoing. Now that she is a prisoner of the government, she rarely talks to anyone, at least not verbally. She follows orders out of fear of having her powers taken away... or worse.
Power: Telepathy - Mina can use this power in the following ways:
- Telepathic Speaking: She can speak with others using her mind instead of her voice. The current range of this ability is five miles.
- Telepathic Relay: Mina can use her talent with telepathy to act as a "relay station" for a group of minds, allowing said minds to speak to one another through her. The current range of this ability is five miles.
- Mind Melding: Mina can temporarily fuse her consciousness with that of another, resulting in a sharing and transference of knowledge, emotions, and memories. She must be in physical contact with the target.
- Psionic Inundation: Also know as Telepathic Torture or a Psionic Blast, the user can project harmful psionic volleys, which may result in brain damage, memory loss, unconsciousness, vegetative state or even death. The victim is not physically harmed, but damages the internal mentality of a target. Mina can do the following:
- Neurocognitive Deficit: She can cause the opponent's upper brain functions to shut down temporarily, causing unconsciousness. The current range of this ability is 60 feet, and she must either be able to see them or have physical contact with them. Mina can hit up to two targets simultaneously with this ability.
- Pain Inducement: Her least favorite use of her mutant power, Mina can inflict varying levels of agonizing mental pain to her victim. The current range of this ability is 60 feet, and she must either be able to see them or have physical contact with them. Mina can only use this ability on one person at a time.
History: Mina's telepathy manifested shortly before she turned seventeen. Everything was cool until she had a Carrie moment on prom night, where her freak out caused the entire gymnasium full of classmates and faculty to fall unconscious from the sudden, immense mental anguish the young mutant brought upon them. Outed as a freak, Mina was captured hours later. The government officials gave her a choice: work for them... or die. For roughly three years Mina has been held captive. She rarely goes out in the field. Instead, she is often forced to persuade (interrogate) newly captured mutants into giving up valuable information.
Mina hates her "job". She hates her life, her lack of freedom. Something is going to have to give.
She's beginning to realize that to regain her freedom... she may have to give up her life.
IC is here, people.
