    Back/Step

    The year is 2021. 21 years ago, a massive wavelength known only as the Alyx Wave turned 8% of the world's population into superhumans, forcing the world to adapt, creating the 5 Gaian Physic Laws of Reality, the classifications that defined the superhumans, and the A-7 Council of Superhuman Affairs that policed them.

    Welcome to Chrinistar City, Florida. You were not at ground zero during the event, but you’re still technically at its center.

    4 years earlier, after the events of what became known as the Chrinistar Timestop, a boy is arrested for the event, for the crime of killing one of his loved ones, pursuing vigilantism without being of age, breaching the laws of his power, and destroying the reputation of the founder of the A-7 Council, forcing the individual to retire.
    All seemed well. Or so most think.

    The murderous cult, known as The Church of Eight Hands, has risen further to higher power, and most of the vigilantes hired by the government are spread too thin to stop them. Occasional rifts originally caused by the original Alyx Event have become more common and unstable, dangerous even. The perpetrator of the Chrinistar Timestop has escaped.

    Everyone has a role to play in this convoluted game of chess. The question is, shall you make the first move to win the game? Or is there a deeper meaning in all this?

    • You are in Chrinistar City for your own reasons, whether you like it or not. You know what those problems are. How they affect you and those you speak with whom know of your situation is up to you to decide how you will settle them.

      However, the Speaker of the A-7 Council has called you or brought you in against your will simply because of one thing: His worst possible prisoner is missing, and at the worst opportune time. One-way dimensional and temporal tears that were once as regular as accident avoidance have become more frequent to the populace to the point where collateral damage is stacking up. A murderous cult of superhumans trying to bring back their Eldritch goddess back has a new leader, and proving to be impossible to handle. Overall, it doesn’t help that there may be a civil war because superhumans and regs just can’t get along.

      One thing is for sure. The Speaker of A-7 seems to know what may be going on. And if you do this task for him, maybe, just maybe, you might have a chance to settle whatever business you have later before whatever hits the fan. Hopefully.

      • You are one of the lucky 8% of the entire world to have superpowers. On the plus side, you are 5x stronger than regular humans in every respect, even without your powers. On the minus side, you’re classified based on the powers you have and people are allowed to detain you if you decided to do something unsanctioned. There are 5 Classifications in the world of Impetus. Whatever classification you choose, your power must reflect that.

        Enhancer - Your own body is your self-enhancement. You can either modify or transform your body like it’s a tool, or otherwise empower or depress people of their vitality.

        Elemental - You’re a conduit, a living battery, capable of controlling the physical element you are locked to, be they calm waters, unrefined flames, the deepness of shadows or all spectrums of light, you output what you possess.

        Artificial - You’re born to be one with artificiality.You are either capable of understanding of technology or any kind or era to an alarming degree or you can produce technology from your very body. As a by-product, you have more iron in your body and blood.

        Arcane - You are a contract or an agreement. You, through the power of the unexplained and using glyphs, can become monsters of myth or even harness the power of demigods. Naturally, under normal circumstances, these abilities aren’t normally yours and the capabilities tend to fall in a grey area. Doesn’t stop you from making it your own, though.

        Gaian - You are gifted and burdened. You are either naturally gifted beyond your years to be capable of destroying the planet with raw, unrefined power. Or, the powers that be has granted you a power that breaks the 5 Gaian Physic Laws, rules that govern the world we live in. Whatever the case, you are a force to be reckoned with, both by those naturally beneath you and those you call kin. (I will only allow one of you, maybe two, to take this classification. You can probably guess why.)
      • Your chosen path acts like a sort of “filler” to help get your story going. It’s your past, but it doesn’t have to be your future. You will, sooner or later, have to confront your past while dealing with the main events of what’s going on. Entries here will be added or removed, and each one is first come, first served. Choose wisely.
        • Test Subject - You are a lab rat, either as an ex-convict on death row or kidnapped against your will. If your captors say jump, asking how high will potentially terminate your contract. You were to never ask questions. As of now though, you’ve been given a new lease on your “life” due to recent events.
        • Undercover Agent - You’re one of the few people that like to play cards close to your chest. Unlike most liars, you’re the best at telling half or parts of a truth to get the information you need and write the story as you see fit. As a result, you receive a special message from an interested 3rd party for your rather unique skill set.
        • Turncoat - For one reason or another, your last team did something that made you decide to call it quits. They weren’t happy, and you either vanished quietly, or barely escaped with your life. Either way, you’ve been shunned and branded as a traitor. It just so happened that another faction decided to take the opportunity to take you in when they did.
        • Former Mercenary - You’re not fazed by killing. Ever since you’ve been handed your first paycheck, you’ve always been the go-to individual to clean up others’ messes. However, after finally putting that life down after a decent career, Gaia decides to throw you for a loop and an excuse to drag you back in. At least the pay’s good.
        • Charlatan - Let’s face it; you’ve had to lie, cheat and steal for at least most of your life to get by. It’s not an honest living, but it beats starving. However, as a result of your sticky fingers, you may or may not have ended up with a crowd that could prematurely end your streak.
        • Martyr - You are supposed to be the “chosen one”. You’ve been groomed all your life by those who coddled you as a cherished pawn to be promoted, a prized piece of the puzzle. And now, you decide it’s the best time to prove your worth.
        • Normie - You are really nothing special. At least, not by adverse standards. You make an honest living, and it tends to be mundane. Just the way you like it. But your life is missing that little bit of spice that makes it fascinating. Gaia decides to give you that opportunity and dial it up to 11.

      Population: 8,744,835
      Chrinistar City sits close to the edge of the Florida peninsula, just off near Tampa. Thanks to the Alyx Wave, part of the climate shifts between arid to humid on the dime, with Purgos and Downtown landlocked by a small desert region and Arkadian acting as a coastal shirk. The only viable port in and out of the city by freshwater trade means lies in between the territorial halves of Purgos and Corps Row, Downtown and Kings, and running through Teslar, dividing the latter to east and west.

      • The semi-rural part of Chrinistar, given in honor of the founder of A-7 and the 5 Gaian Physic Laws thanks to his continued contribution to superhuman society as a whole. Makes up 35% of the city’s land, and by Teslar’s wishes, he willed it to be his land as a haven for his last and now defunct project, the Teslar Academy for Superhumans.

        Otherwise somewhat green land with a few sparse residences, bus stops, and areas of interest.

        Landmarks
        • Teslar Academy of Superhumans - Ermand Teslar’s last project before an early retirement; a means to allow Superhumans to enter the workforce with their powers as catalysts for coexistence. This place was ground zero for the Chrinistar Timestop, which caused Teslar’s resignation of A-7 and the boarding school becoming desecrated. Built by the headmaster’s own abilities, it’s an academy with crumbling rooms supposedly bigger on the inside, and rumor has it that it can support well over 500 students despite its modest size. Around the back of the academy looks to be similar to an arena of sorts.
        • Rowland Forest - A small plot of forest that surrounds the Academy and leads to the cemetery. Not thick enough to be overtly dangerous, but not small enough to get lost, this forest sticks out like a few sore thumbs in the sparse territory.
        • Teslar Cemetery - Local cemetery near Teslar Academy. Most of the departed were people that the headmaster supposedly knew personally.
      • Residential district of the middle-class and well-off. Not too many sights aside from many houses that dot the coastline that borders outward of the city. Many great (and infamous) families live, or have lived here in the past. The second smallest single district in the city.

        Border territory, occasionally rains there more often due to being near the coast.

        Landmarks
        • Valin Residence - Home to the only current resident and ex-vigilante, Theodore Valin. He is the elder brother to Rex Valin, the supposed perpetrator of the Chrinistar Timestop, forcing him to stop being a vigilante. The rest family left because they couldn’t face the “disgrace” left behind by their youngest son, while the eldest remained, hoping his youngest brother could be pardoned. Maybe he has clues to what happened?
        • Evernathy Residence - Home to Valencia Evernathy. Her husband had passed from a cardiac arrest during the Alyx Event and her daughter was killed during the Chrinistar Timestop. Now, she’s a broken woman on the brink of depression, pills, and perpetual grief. Valencia claims that her daughter and Rex Valin were apparently close, and the latter had made a promise to the mother he couldn’t keep.
      • Inner city, twin district to Cardiff. Contains mostly the middle to poor class. Likened to almost be similar to Queens, New York in some respect. The territory being closer to Downtown makes it a partial place of commerce.

        Busy territory with bustling streets and crowds.

        Landmarks
        • Maxwell Prosthetics - Home to Arnoldo Maxwell, and key area to improving technology. The story goes that Maxwell not only started the shop with his father, making prosthetic parts for the poor since he was 10 years, but he also went to Teslar Academy before it shut down and he was close friends with Rex Valin. Otherwise, he’s a valuable source of information and technology… For a price of course.
        • Black Oracle Tavern - Somewhat seedy bar with musical entertainment stage. A lot of anti A-7 and anti Church supporters come here to drown their sorrows. Others have stories, some pertaining to more… particular slabs of information.
      • Inner city, twin district to Kings. Contains mostly the middle to poor class. Likened to almost be similar to the Big Apple, New York in some respect. The territory being closer to Arkadian makes it a partial place of entertainment.

        Busy territory with bustling streets and crowds.

        Landmarks
        • Cardiff Battledome - Home of the sport of Jetskate Soccer and host to many later legal gladiatorial combat matches. On the surface, a lot checks out, but everyone knows that the owner, Amadeus Karthage, tends to run his own, more illegal gig during “special nights”, as he calls it.
        • Ellsee's Nightclub - Popular night club out of the twin districts, sporting a top-tier dance floor and even karaoke rooms. The Vacuoe Twins, two twins with music control powers and a mad taste for music, frequent there as DJs. Both are graduates from Teslar Academy and each have plenty to say about what happened there.
      • Capital territory and second largest district in the city. All major policing forces and political endeavors reside there. Busiest part of the city overall, dawn, afternoon, and dusk.

        District is the busiest of both Kings and Cardiff combined.

        Landmarks
        • Arthur Chrinistar Town Hall - Home and office to the mayor of the city.
        • A-7 Council Sector-1 - HQ and Capital of the council of seven that delegates and polices superhumans. Sits behind the Town hall, and is structurally like a barracks. Able to house at least an entire military force. Depending on how you approach your problems, these guys could be your best friends or worst possible foes.
      • Considered “Port” district of the city, and third-largest territory on the map. Despite its industrial nature, it’s considered the second poorest area on the map. Not a lot seemingly goes on here… if you can overlook the occasional drug smuggling and black market deals.

        Port district with the only source of a freshwater trade route in the entire city and one of the dividers between the east and west parts of the city.

        Landmarks
        • Scardino Casino - Home to the superhuman crime boss of the European mafia, Dom Scardino, and his daughter. While a bit more proper in the 21st Century, they aren’t too above making underhanded deals to benefit “the family”.
        • Abydos Hotel - [DATA REDACTED]
        • Edison Docks - Only port in the city. Easy area for smuggling, along with a few nearby warehouses for shady business.
      • The true poverty district and the smallest piece in the city. It comes as no surprise that Purgos is both the most overlooked and uninhabited part of the entire city. This slab of territory is known to be home to the cultists belonging to the Church of Eight Hands, but nothing can be done, because the mayor is worried about causing mass panic simply to siege a near-empty piece of the city.

        Composed of poverty, abandoned streets and desecrated areas, and one of the dividers between the east and west parts of the city.

        Landmarks
        • Church of the Seven Sovereigns - One of the few churches still under operation despite the mass poverty surrounding it. Despite too many diverging religions, the building and their pastors remain under the guise of their one true god and Christianity. However, there have been some rumors regarding that it’s a front for the cultists, the actual Church of Eight Hands, and supposedly, it came under new management after the Chrinistar Timestop resolved. Try not to take this area lightly.

      ☉ Power: By touching a computer of any kind, he can use the energy in his own body in order to hack into it and gain access. However to do it remotely he needs to get at least to the firewall on his own device
      ☉ Classification: Artificial
      ☉ Personality: Jaycob likes to think that he is perfect in every sort of the word. He is attractive, he is smart, he has an awesome skill with computers, and lets face it, who
      ☉ Short Backstory: At first when Jaycob manifested his abilities, he was labeled a freak. At the time he was top of his class, doing great, popular and everything a boy could want. However when he started realizing his powers and trying to show the other kids, instead of being impressed, they feared him. He tried desperately to gain their approval, but throughout the years failed. Amidst such failures, he did find one group of friends that would take him in. A gang really, but at the time Jaycob had not realized this. They had been nice to him, took him in when no one else would and encouraged his powers. It started as tests on his friends computers, hacking into them, seeing what he could do with this knowledge. Then it turned into pranks, hacking computers of people that pissed him off and doing harmless things. That turned into blackmail, which eventually turned into extortion. Without realizing it, his friends, and his fun and games turned into something much more. Jay found himself in the middle of a criminal organization, a tool of theirs, and he wasn't the first. Apparently it was common for them to send younger members out to find the talented in order to bring them to their side. Still they helped him, they were fun, they made him feel worth something and made him feel powerful.

      Jay stayed with the group until he was 27, but that was the point that he had had enough. The crimes were getting bigger and he was seeing less of the profit going to him, despite him doing most of the work to get them in there. It was when they wanted to extort a business that employed thousands, and drain them of all their money that he decided that he wanted out. Jay's father worked for the company as one of its executives. Though he didn't talk to his father much at that point, he knew that a hit like that might cause him his job, and Jay never wished that on his family. He tried to convince them to do something else, hit somewhere else, stop the operation, but they refused. He tried to blackmail them, threatening to take all their information to the police, but they believed he didn't have the guts for it. After all, he was as much of a criminal as they were, he would get in just as much trouble. Jay took this as a challenge, walking out with his laptop full of information to turn into the police.

      In the end, of course, they were right. He was arrested for his deeds with the organization, but with the help of a good lawyer, Jaycob was able to strike a deal. With his knowledge and skills on hacking he could do a lot of good for the police force. In exchange for his freedom, he was to work directly for the police as one of their own, helping in any case that might specifically have to do with cyber crime. Jaycob was good at it, and what was even more surprising was that he enjoyed it. Being an officer helped protect him to some extent from those who wished to harm him after he turncoated, and the job gave him the challenge he needed. It didn't hurt that he could more easily pick up girls, and guys, in a uniform either.

      ☉ Classification: Enhancer
      ☉ Personality: Guarded and constantly alert, but otherwise very friendly. She's quick on her feet, but still pretty naive when it comes to basic knowledge. Her voice is soft but she is by no means shy.
      ☉ Short Backstory: Despite her birth name being Lily, most people don't know that. In fact if someone called her Lily on the streets she'd be unlikely to respond. She's gone by the name Spectre since she was thrown out on the streets alone at age 10, when her powers blossomed and freaked her parents out so hard they got rid of her. She quickly became resourceful, stealing to survive and getting herself some places to stay the night no problem. Like a lot of homeless in the city she goes by an alias so no one can snitch, but her powers are identifiable enough where she can't keep out of trouble too easily. Spectre has two rules about her thefts: no stealing from other poors, and no stealing from those who've shown her kindness (the second she adopted later after an incident that made her feel guilty).

      Spectre is usually kind enough and out of the way no one messes with her. Even in the Purgos district, though she avoids there as much as she can so she can remain ignorant of what exactly is going on there and not get roped in. She jumps in to help anyone who's gotten themselves into unexpected trouble and loves giving tourists directions when they find themselves lost. Normally her antics keep the police looking away cause of the lack of harm she causes herself. Doesn't mean she isn't good at getting herself caught in enough situations where she may have bit off more than she can chew.

      ☉ Personality: Observant and cautious, his time as a test subject instill these two traits into his as it seemed that even the simplest of things could get him killed. Not one to shy away from taking advantage of a situation, but knows when its time to run.
      ☉ Short Backstory: Life had never been anything that Zeke had any control of. His birth parents had dumped him in an orphanage once they realized that they couldn't bear the burden of having a kid to raise. He lived out those days in relative peace until he reached the ripe age of 16, where an accidental discovery of his powers had forced him to flee the orphanage that had been his home for years and seek out a home elsewhere.

      It was a short-lived ventured as word of his "incident" had reached some certain ears and Zeke soon found himself "adopted" and taken to his new home. The next three years for him can be easily equated to hell as what awaited him was a series of experiments and tests to fully draw out his powers. Out of the initial ten people, he was one of the few that managed to survive, changing the color of his eye as a permanent mark of this. His test typically consisted of grueling trials in hopes of drawing out more of his powers, power he struggled at first to properly control. They gave him a means of channeling it to prevent needless destruction fo the facility, but it only resulted in harsher treatment.

      Still, he endured and was rewarded one day when another freak accident caused by one of the other patients short-circuited the whole facility and amidst the ensuing chaos, Zeke was to find a way out and back to the outside. Since then he's always kept a watchful eye out, in case someone from the facility might've been watching him once again.

      ☉ Chosen Path: Normie
      ☉ Starting LV:
      ☉ Power: Electricity
      ☉ Classification: Elemental
      ☉ Personality: Artistic with her guitar, seems stand-offish at first but warms up to those she gets to know. When she feels adventurous, she likes to get out of her shell and really express herself, but that side only really comes out around close friends and in shows. Other than that, she seems socially awkward and stand-offish, refusing to shake hands with strangers unless she's wearing special gloves, or touching them physically. People who know her make jokes that she's a germaphobe which is not the case at all.
      ☉ Short Backstory: Danni seemed to grow up in a household that was normal enough; she had a mom, a dad, and an sister ten years older than her with a "firey" personality. Her sister was a fire elemental, and proud about it. Danni remembers not seeing her around often at the house, and waking up in the middle of the night to arguments that would erupt in yelling matches. Sometimes she would hear the walls and floors banging like someone would get in a physical fight, but it would end with her dad breaking it up. Danni tried to get close to her sister, drawing her pictures or offering small "gifts" like flowers or a pretty rock she found, but they wouldn't spend much time together otherwise. Her sister didn't like to be home. One night, the fighting got so bad, Danni crawled out of bed to see what was happening, only to be met with a wall of fire. Her sister was unhinged, screaming at her parents she was going to kill them. When she looked like she was going to send a fiery blast at her parents, Danni remembered stepping in the way and putting her arms out, which made her sister stop a little too late. Danni's left arm was singed, but the look of horror in her sister's eyes will be forever engrained in her head. Danni's sister was arrested, and she was out of their lives forever.

      A year after this incident, when Danni was around seven or eight years old, strange things began to happen to this rather normal girl. The lights would turn off or on before she would touch the light switch, she started accidentally shocking people all the time on contact, her hair would get frizzy and crazy on days of thunderstorms, her clothes always seemed to be staticky, and she could sometimes make the cat's hair stand up on end all over in a poof ball with a single poke of the finger. Her parents worst fears were confirmed, and Danni had to be registered. Remembering the incident that happened with her sister and bearing the scar of the incident on her arm, Danni swore she would never be like her and kept everything under wraps. She learned if she wore rubber boots, the shocks wouldn't happen as much. Gloves were next. Hugs became a thing of the past, and handshakes and any other physical contact was off-limits in her head.

      She tried to be a good daughter; help with chores, continue to go to school for good attendance and grades, tried to be an active member in the community, but it never felt enough. Her mom was going to therapy constantly due to what happened and was on heavy medication and would be asleep most of the time. Her father chose to work longer hours and was never home anymore. Danni felt like she was alone and isolated in her teen years and often struggled with her own thoughts and confidence in herself.

      When she was old enough, Danni moved out with her electric guitar, and her cat black cat Suduko. She got a part time job at a coffee/tea shop, and does mini concerts and shows with a band that goes by the name of Fate's Showdown. The shows is the only time her gloves and boots come off in public, which helps with interesting effects if she gets into her shows.

    ☉ Starting LV: (To be filled out by me after sign-up)
    ☉ Power: By touching a computer of any kind, he can use the energy in his own body in order to hack into it and gain access. However to do it remotely he needs to get at least to the firewall on his own device
    ☉ Classification: Artificial
    ☉ Personality: Jaycob likes to think that he is perfect in every sort of the word. He is attractive, he is smart, he has an awesome skill with computers, and lets face it, who
    ☉ Short Backstory: At first when Jaycob manifested his abilities, he was labeled a freak. At the time he was top of his class, doing great, popular and everything a boy could want. However when he started realizing his powers and trying to show the other kids, instead of being impressed, they feared him. He tried desperately to gain their approval, but throughout the years failed. Amidst such failures, he did find one group of friends that would take him in. A gang really, but at the time Jaycob had not realized this. They had been nice to him, took him in when no one else would and encouraged his powers. It started as tests on his friends computers, hacking into them, seeing what he could do with this knowledge. Then it turned into pranks, hacking computers of people that pissed him off and doing harmless things. That turned into blackmail, which eventually turned into extortion. Without realizing it, his friends, and his fun and games turned into something much more. Jay found himself in the middle of a criminal organization, a tool of theirs, and he wasn't the first. Apparently it was common for them to send younger members out to find the talented in order to bring them to their side. Still they helped him, they were fun, they made him feel worth something and made him feel powerful.

    Jay stayed with the group until he was 27, but that was the point that he had had enough. The crimes were getting bigger and he was seeing less of the profit going to him, despite him doing most of the work to get them in there. It was when they wanted to extort a business that employed thousands, and drain them of all their money that he decided that he wanted out. Jay's father worked for the company as one of its executives. Though he didn't talk to his father much at that point, he knew that a hit like that might cause him his job, and Jay never wished that on his family. He tried to convince them to do something else, hit somewhere else, stop the operation, but they refused. He tried to blackmail them, threatening to take all their information to the police, but they believed he didn't have the guts for it. After all, he was as much of a criminal as they were, he would get in just as much trouble. Jay took this as a challenge, walking out with his laptop full of information to turn into the police.

    In the end, of course, they were right. He was arrested for his deeds with the organization, but with the help of a good lawyer, Jaycob was able to strike a deal. With his knowledge and skills on hacking he could do a lot of good for the police force. In exchange for his freedom, he was to work directly for the police as one of their own, helping in any case that might specifically have to do with cyber crime. Jaycob was good at it, and what was even more surprising was that he enjoyed it. Being an officer helped protect him to some extent from those who wished to harm him after he turncoated, and the job gave him the challenge he needed. It didn't hurt that he could more easily pick up girls, and guys, in a uniform either.

    ☉ Chosen Path: “I have chosen the path of Charlatan."
    ☉ Starting LV: (To be filled out by me after sign-up)
    ☉ Power: The ability to turn into shadows and manipulate objects through them. Has to be in a shadow form to do so.
    ☉ Classification: Enhancer
    ☉ Personality: Guarded and constantly alert, but otherwise very friendly. She's quick on her feet, but still pretty naive when it comes to basic knowledge. Her voice is soft but she is by no means shy.
    ☉ Short Backstory: Despite her birth name being Lily, most people don't know that. In fact if someone called her Lily on the streets she'd be unlikely to respond. She's gone by the name Spectre since she was thrown out on the streets alone at age 10, when her powers blossomed and freaked her parents out so hard they got rid of her. She quickly became resourceful, stealing to survive and getting herself some places to stay the night no problem. Like a lot of homeless in the city she goes by an alias so no one can snitch, but her powers are identifiable enough where she can't keep out of trouble too easily. Spectre has two rules about her thefts: no stealing from other poors, and no stealing from those who've shown her kindness (the second she adopted later after an incident that made her feel guilty).

    Spectre is usually kind enough and out of the way no one messes with her. Even in the Purgos district, though she avoids there as much as she can so she can remain ignorant of what exactly is going on there and not get roped in. She jumps in to help anyone who's gotten themselves into unexpected trouble and loves giving tourists directions when they find themselves lost. Normally her antics keep the police looking away cause of the lack of harm she causes herself. Doesn't mean she isn't good at getting herself caught in enough situations where she may have bit off more than she can chew.

    ☉ Gender: Male
    ☉ Sexuality: Straight
    ☉ Age: 23
    ☉ Appearance: Zeke
    ☉ Eye Color/Occuli Color: Left Eye|Right Eye|Occuli
    ☉ Chosen Path: “I have chosen the path of Test Subject.”
    ☉ Starting LV: (To be filled out by me after sign-up)
    ☉ Power: Light and Darkness manipulation that can also be done in stronger forms through the mediums of the two staves.
    ☉ Classification: Arcane
    ☉ Personality: Observant and cautious, his time as a test subject instill these two traits into his as it seemed that even the simplest of things could get him killed. Not one to shy away from taking advantage of a situation, but knows when its time to run.
    ☉ Short Backstory: Life had never been anything that Zeke had any control of. His birth parents had dumped him in an orphanage once they realized that they couldn't bear the burden of having a kid to raise. He lived out those days in relative peace until he reached the ripe age of 16, where an accidental discovery of his powers had forced him to flee the orphanage that had been his home for years and seek out a home elsewhere.

    It was a short-lived ventured as word of his "incident" had reached some certain ears and Zeke soon found himself "adopted" and taken to his new home. The next three years for him can be easily equated to hell as what awaited him was a series of experiments and tests to fully draw out his powers. Out of the initial ten people, he was one of the few that managed to survive, changing the color of his eye as a permanent mark of this. His test typically consisted of grueling trials in hopes of drawing out more of his powers, power he struggled at first to properly control. They gave him a means of channeling it to prevent needless destruction fo the facility, but it only resulted in harsher treatment.

    Still, he endured and was rewarded one day when another freak accident caused by one of the other patients short-circuited the whole facility and amidst the ensuing chaos, Zeke was to find a way out and back to the outside. Since then he's always kept a watchful eye out, in case someone from the facility might've been watching him once again.

    ☉ Character Name: Danni (Daniela) Hensley
    ☉ Gender: Female
    ☉ Sexuality: Demisexual, Lesbian-Curious
    ☉ Age: 21
    ☉ Appearance: zip
    ☉ Eye Color/Occuli Color: Eye Color- Sky Blue Occuli Color: Cyan
    ☉ Chosen Path: Normie
    ☉ Starting LV:
    ☉ Power: Electricity
    ☉ Classification: Elemental
    ☉ Personality: Artistic with her guitar, seems stand-offish at first but warms up to those she gets to know. When she feels adventurous, she likes to get out of her shell and really express herself, but that side only really comes out around close friends and in shows. Other than that, she seems socially awkward and stand-offish, refusing to shake hands with strangers unless she's wearing special gloves, or touching them physically. People who know her make jokes that she's a germaphobe which is not the case at all.
    ☉ Short Backstory: Danni seemed to grow up in a household that was normal enough; she had a mom, a dad, and an sister ten years older than her with a "firey" personality. Her sister was a fire elemental, and proud about it. Danni remembers not seeing her around often at the house, and waking up in the middle of the night to arguments that would erupt in yelling matches. Sometimes she would hear the walls and floors banging like someone would get in a physical fight, but it would end with her dad breaking it up. Danni tried to get close to her sister, drawing her pictures or offering small "gifts" like flowers or a pretty rock she found, but they wouldn't spend much time together otherwise. Her sister didn't like to be home. One night, the fighting got so bad, Danni crawled out of bed to see what was happening, only to be met with a wall of fire. Her sister was unhinged, screaming at her parents she was going to kill them. When she looked like she was going to send a fiery blast at her parents, Danni remembered stepping in the way and putting her arms out, which made her sister stop a little too late. Danni's left arm was singed, but the look of horror in her sister's eyes will be forever engrained in her head. Danni's sister was arrested, and she was out of their lives forever.

    A year after this incident, when Danni was around seven or eight years old, strange things began to happen to this rather normal girl. The lights would turn off or on before she would touch the light switch, she started accidentally shocking people all the time on contact, her hair would get frizzy and crazy on days of thunderstorms, her clothes always seemed to be staticky, and she could sometimes make the cat's hair stand up on end all over in a poof ball with a single poke of the finger. Her parents worst fears were confirmed, and Danni had to be registered. Remembering the incident that happened with her sister and bearing the scar of the incident on her arm, Danni swore she would never be like her and kept everything under wraps. She learned if she wore rubber boots, the shocks wouldn't happen as much. Gloves were next. Hugs became a thing of the past, and handshakes and any other physical contact was off-limits in her head.

    She tried to be a good daughter; help with chores, continue to go to school for good attendance and grades, tried to be an active member in the community, but it never felt enough. Her mom was going to therapy constantly due to what happened and was on heavy medication and would be asleep most of the time. Her father chose to work longer hours and was never home anymore. Danni felt like she was alone and isolated in her teen years and often struggled with her own thoughts and confidence in herself.

    When she was old enough, Danni moved out with her electric guitar, and her cat black cat Suduko. She got a part time job at a coffee/tea shop, and does mini concerts and shows with a band that goes by the name of Fate's Showdown. The shows is the only time her gloves and boots come off in public, which helps with interesting effects if she gets into her shows.
