Full Name: Karlin Bellevue
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Alignment: Hero, but with a rather flexible moral compass
Bio: She was part of a group of kids once genetically experimented upon to try and bring the supers back.In exchange for her powers, she's lost some of her feeling of touch. Though her powers certainly do compensate for that.
She doesn't know much about who did the experimenting. Karlin rather resents them, except for the fact that they're the ones who placed her with her family, wonderful people that they are. Even so, her goal at the moment is to try and find out more about the origins of her powers.
Powers: Karlin can control the temperature of her body, along with the ability to see the heat signatures of things. Not to mention the fact that she can also control the temperature of other things and people, but she needs to be rather close in order to do the last one.
Equipment/Weapons: Daggers, grappling hook and a rope.
Appearance: http://papilloncameo.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4urulh Her hair is orange, her eyes are green and skin is peach colored.
Costumed Appearance: In the works, though it will probably be something flirty, with a corset.

Bio: Haru was born from a clan who was big into spiritual essence, and shadows, on a planet which translated to english would mean Shadow Moon. He was supposed to be the heir of the clan, and was born under the full moon, which to them was a holliday for their god. He was reveired as their walking saint in a way, the child of not really his parents, but their god instead. As he grew, he exibited his powers, which caused them to fear and worship him. His clan however came under a war, and to aquire victory, their rivals kidnapped him. He managed to escape while they were trying to transport him. He traveled to earth on a pod, and crashed landed. He has spent his time blending into the surrounding culture, while both clans look for him. He does not want to go home, and hopes to begin a life of his own here.
Powers: His abilities are more spiritual, he has Astral projection, as well as Mediumship, the ability to see and communicate with the dead. Along with this, he also has the psionic ability of empathy. This allows him to steal emotions from others, rendering them emotionally "numb". He is also able to force outside emotions into other people, it also allows him to absorb the pain of injured people to ease their suffering, and induce rapid healing. These are more defensive and calm abilities, for offince, he has the ability to control, manipulate and or generate pure shadows and darkness. He is able to use this to cause pain, tension, and fear-based illusions. His last ability is Psychokinesis, by using his mind, and surrounding things in a shadow like energy, he is able to move them.
Equipment/Weapons: He carries a sword, that is usually disguised as a necklace that looks like this. When it is fully grown it looks like this

She would then move in with her father. She would spend a wonderful nine years with him, traveling the world and exploring archeological sites. She came to love her father more then she’d ever loved her cold and distant mother with her pretentious, arrogant friends. When she was 17, however, her blissful childhood would pass into adulthood most violently.
She found a strange stone pressed into the wall of a temple one day. She touched it and the spiritual power she had allowed it to activate. It opened a trap door that lead to a long stair case. One of the stairs would break under her weight as she tried to climb them and she would fall into a stone quarry far beneath the earth. The stone was in fact the inspiration for the myths of the alchemist stone and this was the only place in the world it could be found.
The fall nearly killed her but the stone would began to meld with her body through the open wounds. It would have finished the job if she had lacked spiritual powers but instead she would become a living philosopher’s stone of sorts. As the ‘elixer of life’ contained in the stone’s radiation began to heal her she would be found by her father. He was not so lucky as her and when he dropped in to try and save her he would be killed by the stone, his body turned to stone. She now tries to use the powers she gained from the transformation for good, to deal with the guilt she feels for her father’s death. She also runs her mother’s company now after turning eighteen, mainly over the phones.
Powers: She has regeneration, does not age, can turn her body to stone/metal, and can transform anything inanimate object she touches to anything she wishes. She can make a rock into a chicken if she wants to! The transformations last no more than ten minutes however, and can last as little as 30 seconds depending on how much difference she must make and how much concentration she has when she does. Gold also acts as the equal of her kryptonite, actually causing damage where it touches even when she is in stone/metal form. Regeneration also takes up all her energy so she cannot use her other powers and heal at the same time.
Equipment/Weapons: Size Changing, Metal staff. Appearance:
Sammael Kahled El-Amin: Omega-Level Mutant

This name soon became a burden as he developed his powers at an early age, accidentally draining plants and farm animals of life. His parents quickly took him back to their home in the US where they kept him fairly hidden from the world, even paying off investigators that came snooping.
His father, a professor of occult and religious practices, worked with Samael to discover the nature of his powers. Taking knowledge from texts from various cultures around the world, he formulated a way for Samael to harness the energies and manipulate them. Once he had enough control, the family returned to the middle-east where Sam helped his father in his studies.
After several years of traveling, Samael left for the US to seek out and "study" other supers. In his search he as found himself with an alter-ego of his own, prowling the streets of New York after the sun goes down.
Powers:He has the ability to tap into, manipulate and absorb what you could call "cosmic" energy; the life-force that is in all natural and living things. He can redirect the energies to heal himself and others, create tangible objects such as shields and weapons and create/control the elements in small to moderate amounts. In order to do so, he must take the energy from things around him or himself if nothing else is available.
A side effect of drawing from the life-force of other things is his aging process has slowed down nearly to a halt, as his own life-force is constantly being replenished instead of lessening as he grows older. He has also discovered that draining a living creature of all of it's energy gives him a brief stint of seeming immortality, giving his abilities a large boost as well as allowing him to heal very quickly. The larger the creature the life-force was from, the longer the effects.
His major weakness is man-made objects and materials. Fashioned glass, concrete and plastic/rubber all inhibit his abilities as they not only have no natural energies, but block the flow of them. Due to this, he has trouble using his powers to their full extent within the city, having to rely on the patches of plants, stray animals and himself for energy to work with. Another drawback is he only seems to be able to heal other supers, and only those with innate or natural gifts. Equipment/Weapons: He creates his weapons through his ability, preferring curved swords to anything, but will attempt to work with other weapons should the situation call for it.

Evangeline Rae Moore: Mutant

Alignment: good Bio: Eva grew up in a well-off family, the only child of a corporate executive and his shut-in wife. Her mother tried to raise her well, with quite a bit of help from her grandparents, and Eva thinks they did a pretty good job. Her grandfather ended p instilling a strong sense of justice in her, telling her stories of the old superheroes. She joined an after school gymnast class late in her elementary schooling, following through with that until the end of high school, when her father insisted on adding self- defense, in the form of martial arts classes. It was in high school that she developed her powers, when her grandfather's pacemaker stopped working suddenly. She was the only one in the room with him, and accidentally caused a spark that started it up again.
After high school, and learning how to control her powers, she decided to become a hero. But the suburb she was living in didn't have much in the way of crime. She started looking for an excuse to go into the city, settling on college as both that excuse, and a smart next step in life anyway. She's taking basic classes and keeping up on her exercises, and has started stalking the city at odd hours. Powers: Electrokenisis, meaning she can create and control electricity. She can create a static charge within her body, loosing it on her chosen target through her hands, creating a bolt of electricity arcing through the air and stunning whatever it hits. She can also ramp this up, scorching with the blast, though she has a lower chance of actually hitting her target. She can also drain or charge electrical devices, acting as a sort of living battery. When charged up, she has to avoid accidentally grounding the energy, meaning she can't touch metal or water, with water possibly shocking her as the electricity discharges. Also, if she used her shock too often, or powers it too high, she can burn her fingertips. Equipment/Weapons: When not stalking the city, she has a can of mace in her bag, as well as a utility knife and other things she might need through the day. When dressed up, she doesn't see a need to carry anything. She also carries around copper wire for conducting electricity. Appearance: (I don't have a picture, but I'll try to get one up before too long) Eva stands about 5'6", with a thin athletic frame and moderate curves. Her hair is black, falling loose to her lower back and framing an oval face with well defined features and grey eyes. She usually has a headband to keep her hair out of her face, and she tries to wear clothing that accents her lightly tanned skin. The type of clothes she prefers are slim fitting pants with feminine blouses. Costumed Appearance: (Kage's working on it...)
Amaryllis Jane Stone: Omega-Level Mutant
Originally Posted by Mimeoh
Full Name: Amaryllis Jane Stone
Sexual Orientation: She's fairly sure she's straight, but HEY! She's in college, what does she know.
Alignment: For the moment, Neutral-but often leans towards hero.
Bio: Born in the middle of nowhere, Wisconsin, Amaryllis lived a simple life. She grew up with a brother six years her senior and parents who'd regretted many decisions. Being born with the x-gene shouldn't have been a problem until she'd hit puberty, but Amaryllis was unlucky and blessed at the same time. Her psychic abilities developed at toddlerhood, which helped her gain much control over the years-saving her a lot of grief through puberty.
Unaware of the issue her abilities would cause her if the world found out, Amaryllis used them quite often in school. She manipulated the minds of other students, stole answers, changed memories, and had plenty of fun. When she reached age fourteen they were called. Living in such a small area didn't cause much panic, so a regional associate was sent to assess the situation for further or no action. With her years of practice, Amaryllis altered his mind and forced him to believe that she was no more that an ordinary-but quirky young woman who would need no further supervision. She learned after this frightening encounter to keep much more quiet about her abilities, let her grades slip slightly to ease suspicion, and moved as far away from Wisconsin as she could handle.
Currently Amaryllis works in a comfortable little coffee shop, goes to school part time, and has high hopes to find love. What she doesn't realize is that there's another calling out there for her.
Powers: Amaryllis has several telepathic abilities, including very limited telekinetic powers.
-Read thoughts and memories
-Manipulate the memories, thoughts, and feelings of others
-Hover up to 10 feet from any vertical or horizontal surface, moving much faster than a person can run-however if she loses concentration or is too fatigued she'll lose this ability. If she's hovering while she loses concentration, she hits the ground--hopefully softly.
-Create psychic blasts, causing mental damage ranging anywhere from a superficial headache to brain hemorrhaging-in severe cases.
Her Weaknesses include
-the inability to manipulate the mind of someone with severe mental/emotional damage, retardation, or illness
-Physical attacks, she's not very strong
-Sudden, powerful emotions in her mental range. She is very empathetic and strong emotions can cause her abilities to spiral out of control-sometimes wiping recent memories from those around her.
Equipment/Weapons: A small palm gun-for protection in the big city.
In costume she also carries a night stick to bludgeon those she cannot manipulate in order to escape.

Anyone who was tested for powers was taken to one of the various parts of the Camp, which was actually more of a slum than anything. Usually, only one member of a family was taken, but considering that both of her parents were taken, she was forced to go with them. Life at the Camp was pretty hard, especially at first. For starters, everyone over the age of three was expected to work in some capacity. She was four. Children and parents were also often separated for weeks at a time in different sections of the Camp, and a few times every week, they were taken to be tested, regardless of whether they had passed or failed before. The tests were always horribly brutal, their aim to push the test-taker to an extreme in hopes of awakening any suppressed power.
The work assigned to her as a toddler was really simple. Pulling weeds and cutting grass was really the only thing they had to do, but as they got older, the work got harder, and the stunting of their emotional growth was increased. Malnutrition and disease were also rampant, and a lot of kids died. That’s where she copied her first three powers, though she hadn’t known it at the time. Really, she was quite the leader. She managed to convince those who had powers and knew it to stand with her against their wardens, and broke free. Of course, they stole various clothing and such from the rich managers of the Camp to assist in their escape to the main city. Once free, the others decided to go their separate ways, leaving Beth heartbroken as she continued to New York alone, where she hoped she could find a way to save her parents. Powers:Omega Level Mutant: Empathic Power Mimicry
Energy Absorbtion and Concussive Blasts
Sammael's Energy Manipulation
She also has the ability to stabilize unstable powers through direct skin contact, which can also help awaken powers or push them along. All powers are also copied at their fullest extent, and with perfect control over them. Her copying of another's powers is also permanent. Weaknesses:
Despite perfect control, her power is much too great to be used in confined spaces with others
Emotions interfere with her powers
She can be really gullible
She is often inexperienced at using new powers despite her perfect control
Her copying range is potentially global, but further distances drain more energy. 100 yards is her limit with no negative side affects
Her -kinesis powers only affect things she can see
Her telepathic range is the same as her copying range
She can only copy powers from mutants
Equipment/Weapons: Nothing really. She’s a kid after all. Appearance: Costumed Appearance:
*She doesn't wear much else because she doesn't have much else. As it was, she just took it off of a guard because she thought it would help with colder weather*

The sheer anger expressed in the image, as well as the detail and skill involved caught in the interest of the local gang, who took her in as one of their own despite her small size. Her parents had been taken to be tested for any superpowers, a process which killed them. Ever since, she’s been with the gang, sleeping in warehouses and performing various duties that the boss has for her. Her specialty is scouting and tagging due to her gymnastics background and small size. Her size is also the reason that she doesn’t get to participate in many fights, though she could probably handle her own in one on one combat.
One day when she was on one of her usual trips, she came across a moving pile of what seemed to be goo. Whenever she stopped, however, it turned as if to look at her, and white eyes appeared on it's surface. While freaked out, Lexi didn't feel any malevolent intent from the creature, and so stooped down to get a better look. That was when it touched her, wrapping around her arm briefly before talking to her mentally. It explained that it was looking for a host, and that without one, it would die. Feeling a synergy with the thing's status as an outcast, Lexi offered to allow it to bond on one condition: they worked together, not for themselves. The creature agreed and bonded with her eagerly, sharing it's history and thoughts with her.
Apparently the symbiote, for that was what it was called, had been conceived several years ago, but couldn't find a host to stay with it. It simply bonded long enough to get nourishment before moving onto the next host. It explained that it needed phenethylamine, which was found in human brains, and after some research, Lexi came to understand that it was found readily in chocolate, which is where she gets it from for the symbiote. Ever since the two have bonded though, they have used their abilities to help their gang, rapidly expanding its territory to become the largest gang in New York City. Powers: Lexi became bonded to a symbiote, giving her all of the classical abilities of the symbiote-host partnership. Strangely enough, this bond dampens her innate power, which is the creation of powerful illusions. Also because of the symbiote's need for phenethylamine, she eats a ton chocolate. Symbiotic abilities:
Processing of breathable gases for host
Ability to form solid structures from its constituent matter
Ability to manipulate tendrils of constituent matter
Slight empathic ability
Equipment/Weapons: Pocketknife, backpack that normally holds paint spray cans for graffiti, and her lock-picks. Appearance: Costumed Appearance:

Following rumors and the vague history of a superhuman crime lord, he devised a plan to create his own superhuman minion. Using poorly translated texts and broken Latin, he attempted to summon an other-worldly creature to possess his young son. The haphazard ritual worked, but not on who he intended.
Aingeal's parent's noticed strange things happening with their son when he was about six. He would stare at shadowy corners, talk and scream at empty rooms and cower when night fell. They kept this secret from the rest of their tight-knit family and took him to doctor after who attempted to treat him, but to no avail. Eventually, they realized the truth of his "illness", but it was too late. He had already been warped by the powers that had taken hold of him.
The head of their family found him when he was 20, and killed his parents out of rage. Aingeal escaped, then fled to the US where he's lived under a false name. While continuing his fight for control and understanding of his powers, he has become a vigilante of sorts, though one wouldn't exactly call his methods those of a hero's. Powers: He is bound to the Umbra, the realm of darkness, and thus has a measure of control over the shadows. He can use them as an extension of his senses, even seeing and hearing things going on miles away, provided he has enough focus. He can also bring a part of the Umbra through the shadows, making them a tangible force that he can manipulate the shape of. Along with this, he has a slight ability to create illusions, bending the shape and balance of shadows and light to create temporary mirages. The most monumental feat is the ability to walk through the Umbra, using the darkest of shadows as gateways. Passive talents include making the shadows in an area grow and making existing darkness darker, to the point where even a flashlight can't light more than a few feet. Equipment/Weapons: Throwing knives- ten small and three large, one of which has a long chain and weight. Appearance: All together rather unimposing, despite his his strong shoulders and sturdy 5' 11" frame. His features are pleasing to the eye, a masculine jaw and full lips adding to his charm while his warm olive skin and the slight downwards tilt to his honey-brown eyes give him an almost sleepy "country" look. His thick hair falls in loose waves and spirals to the bottom of his shoulder blades and is dark brown with auburn undertones, making it shine a rich, deep copper in the sunlight. (I tried to draw him but it wasn't working, so hopefully a description is alright for now.) Costumed Appearance:

All of that changed when his powers of illusion first manifested in the schoolyard when he was in first grade. The media flocked around the incident, broadcasting it all over.
What made it even more sensational was Uriel"s abrupt disappearance. For you see, he had been kidnapped by the supernatural underground. They were radicals, bent on destroying the government while preserving the rights of the people. He was trained thoroughly to use his abilities to fool people's senses to the utmost, and honed his body along with his powers. Powers: He can create illusions so powerful they can fool the senses, but he can only work on two or three of the senses at a time. Vision, scent, touch, hearing, are the ones he tries to affect, with Vision and scent being his preferred ones. Equipment/Weapons: A gun sits comfortably at his waist while hidden daggers adorn his wrists, and ankles. When going out to hunt his prey, whoever it might be, he also brings along a rapier. Appearance: Costumed Appearance: All I know so far is that it's completely white with hints of grey.

His powers didn’t appear until he was fourteen. But when they did, the government was all over his family like flies on honey. He couldn’t do anything to stop his powers, so they were found out. His parents were killed trying to defend him, and he was taken to the Camp in Alabama. Strangely enough, they broke the Evil Overlord codes by allowing him to live, figuring that his ability to create gold would make them rich. Needless to say, he broke out and began making his way north. His plan was to create a new nation for the super-powered, one where they wouldn’t be discriminated by the evil powerless.
Along the way, he discovered stories of a girl with powers who went around helping people and being a hero. After contemplating it for several weeks, he decided to seek her partnership, or, if she denied, kill her. While the description of her powers was fuzzy, he was led to the conclusion that she could kill him if she wanted, and he couldn’t have that. Powers: Midas has an organic gold form, sort of like Colossus, though it eliminates the effects of aging. This provides him with increased strength, durability, and stamina, though it does slow him down a bit. He also gains the ability to discharge electricity through his skin for a short distance of about a foot due to gold’s great conductivity. His key power though, is the ability to turn anything he touches into gold, which he can then animate and use as a minion.
Fire also strengthens him, as gold is refined and tempered in flames. This, as well as molten gold, has the ability to heal him. He can even control molten gold telekinetically, though it is only good until the gold solidifies. Liquids at room temperature that he turns to gold are strangely unaffected by the transformation and remain liquid, although dropping them down to their own freezing point turns them into solid gold.
Witch Silver is his primary weakness, actually forcing his skin to revert to normal and inflicting severe wounds for seconds of contact. It is also the only substance which he cannot turn to gold as well. He also cannot control his ability to turn things to gold. Even things he eats and drinks morph, though his ability to process the metal as food keeps it from being fatal. Equipment/Weapons: A golden sword (attempts to use a gun have backfired miserably) Appearance: Costumed Appearance:
Heiro Kiyomizu: Mutant/Dhampir
Originally Posted by KageShio
Full Name: Heiro Kiyomizu
Alias: The Red Tempest, or just Tempest
Age: Fifty-three, but looks to be in his mid-twenties
Sexual Orientation: Pansexual
Bio: Heiro was born in southern Japan to a mutant woman held against her will. His father was one of the most powerful vampires in the east, a man hell-bent on creating a dhampir- a rare kind of half vampire born from a mortal. The man got his wish and soon after his son was weaned; he dispatched of his “wife” and started to train the child to be a warrior like none the world had seen. Much to the vampire lord’s delight, the boy carried his mother’s power as well, the development of it spurred on by the often brutal discipline carried out when the child lashed out or disobeyed.
By the time Heiro was eighteen, he had taken more lives than he could remember, dispatching of his father’s enemies and allies alike- wherever he was told to go, whoever he was told to assassinate, he did. This continued until Heiro was twenty-six, when a well planned attack from another vampire clan killed much of his “family”, including his father. With no one to tell him where to go, Heiro fled, staying in Japan for a number of years before heading west, where he soon found more work in the broken underground. It did not take long for him to find a profession in taking the lives of supers, who were openly hated and feared here. When a particularly troublesome mutant or meta-human flees the government or wrecks havoc, The Red Tempest is called to finish the job. However, if there is no price on your head, don’t relax just yet- He hunts down powerful or troublesome supers for sport as well.
Powers: due to his unique genetics he not only has the basic, though weakened, powers of a vampire (enhanced senses, strength, healing, ect., slight mind control/hypnosis, ), but a power gifted to him through the X-gene- the control of water and water-based liquids. With this power he can freely move and change the qualities of liquids, including pressure, density and temperature. Over the years he has come to specialize in two fluids in particular- salt water and blood, the latter giving him the alias he now uses.
Weaknesses- He cannot be in the full sunlight for more than a few hours, staying any longer results in blistering sunburn, much like an allergic reaction. Wounds created by silver or an alloy with high silver content heal very slowly and can become infected, potentially killing him if too grievous. He must also feed on blood at least once a day, more if injured or in the sunlight for long.
Equipment/Weapons: Along with hand-to-hand combat, he is proficient in many kinds of weapons: daggers, various swords, some polearms, projectiles and small firearms. He carries two straight-bladed wakizashi, one utility knife, a small-caliber semi-automatic pistol and a canteen of ocean water.
Appearance: ( might get a picture later, if I can find one I like >< ) 6 feet tall, broad shouldered and long-limbed, his lean frame covered in lithe muscles that give him a “swimmers” build. His almond-shaped, midnight-blue eyes are set into a face that is almost feminine, though a masculine jaw and a jagged scar from his left brow to right cheek breaks the illusion. His raven black hair is dead-straight, sleek and mid-back in length, most often tied back loosely with a silk ribbon of a dark color.
Username: Angelo Full Name: Gabriela Dragomir Creckole-Kreiger Nickname: Gabby Alias: Reaper Age: 24 Gender: Female Sexual Orientation: Straight Alignment: Villain Bio: Gabby was born, ironically, at the center of Stonehenge in Britain during a Druidic festival. Considering that her birth took place during the peak of the ceremony, there were great hopes for her as a Druid. As she grew up, she didn’t disappoint either. Her magic was the highest the clan had seen in generations, evidence that she had been born at that time for a reason. She performed her lessons dutifully and to the best of her ability for most of her childhood, never really understanding why the adults treated her like she was special. Her innocent ignorance lasted until her family was killed by the government, which had adopted the United States’ stance on people with super powers.
A Gypsy caravan saved her from the ruins of her home, taking her in and teaching her a bit of their magic as well, though it was mainly potion-making and such. Still, her time with them proved to be wonderful for her mental health. Her depression and thoughts of suicide vanished like smoke. Just like her early childhood, it simply proved to be a temporary arrangement. Several years after the Gypsies had taken her in, a plague swept through the group, killing all of them within a week.
Depressed and broken again, Gabby wandered her native Romania until the government got ahold of her and sent her to an orphanage. Before too long, a wealthy gentleman adopted her, though he was never as warm as the Gypsies had been. By then, Gabby had all but given up on a family and so was content to take his money and use it and his connections to get her hands on the Book of the Dead, as well as other tomes of magic that taught her all she needed to know to be a Necromancer.
The sudden sales of the ancient books were actually what brought her to her mentor. The man walked right up to her house the one day, flashing phony identification to get past security. He was pretending to be from a prestigious academy that was interested in her in order to meet her and secure some private time to talk. There they came up with a plan, though she was suspicious at first. The idea was for her to go to ‘lessons’ every day but the weekend so that he could teach her all he knew about magic. He taught her to desire power above all else and implanted the notion of becoming a vampire for said power.
Unlike her time with the gypsies, the bond she shared with her mentor was never severed. But he still felt it best that they go their separate ways once she had a firm grasp of the magic and the ideals that he had taught her. Occasionally they visit each other as friends, rather than former master and student. They typically discuss magical theory and new discoveries that they had made while apart. It was certainly a good way to keep growing at the very least. The lust for power that he had instilled upon her prompted her to continue searching for a way to become stronger until she found one: vampirism
Eventually, and with much searching, she chanced upon a vampire who was feeding from a helpless man in a back alley. Desiring the power, both physical and magical, of a vampire, she demanded that he turn her. Instead of responding though, he simply fled to relay the request to his leader. That was how she found herself back at her birthplace a month later under the new moon. The council of the sect went through their normal ceremony where they explained everything that would be expected of her. When she agreed, the leader turned her.
After acclimating to her new body and taking various lessons given to new vampires, the Kreiger sect sent her to America to help out their allies in any way possible, given the recent encroachment of a rival sect. And so that’s how she found herself in New York City, the home of supers. Powers: Gabby is a Necromancer first and foremost. Her abilities to raise the undead are quite impressive, which is a clear sign of the magical potential in her, despite her young age. She can raise about a hundred ghosts at a time, fifty skeletons, twenty-five zombies, and one vampire. She can raise any dead creature, of course. The only rule is that the more alive a creature is, the more energy it takes. Vampires are a rather unique case, as they don’t disappear when she’s done with them. Instead, they live on. But she can still only summon one during a full or new moon. She can also control plague to an extent, creating diseases in her magic. Her direct attacks typically consist of death energy, which can kill most things immediately. Larger things tend to take it better, only becoming sick or such. Also, supers tend to better take the magic, only suffering about as much a bear would.
Gabby also has a large collection of druidic spells, having been trained as a druid first. As such, she can control plants, summon animals and other creatures, and even shapeshift. More often than not though, she sticks to her necromancy, or a simple generic spell, like fire or ice. Her nature magic is more valuable when it’s a surprise after all. The weaknesses of her magic vary depending on what she's doing exactly. Pure attacks, like a fireball, are more easily absorbed by cloth, especially silk. Most of her direct attacks require little concentration, so it's hard to interrupt them there, but it is possible. Her larger, more indirect spells require runes to maintain. If these runes can be destroyed, the spell shatters.
As a vampire, Gabby has all the weaknesses. She's killed by sunlight, weakened by silver or, to a lesser extent, wood, allergic to garlic, needs to feed, and is unable to enter a private dwelling uninvited. It's also important to notice that sunlight doesn't kill her immediately. She has about a minute tops. She will still suffer second degree burns within seconds, and third degree shortly thereafter. In terms of strengths, she has all of those as well, including shapeshifting into mist and bats, and mind control, though it depends on the victim's willpower. Interestingly enough, her close ties with the moon result in a strange ability to be healed by moonlight, as well as being granted a bit more power than normal. Equipment/Weapons: She possesses various books of magic, the Necronomicon and the Book of the Dead being her most valuable items. She also owns an obsidian staff that she uses for a focus of her magic in most directed spells. Chalk is another item that she’s never without, as it’s needed to create runes for some of her more complicated spells. Appearance: Costumed Appearance:
I want to announce that I'm planning on permitting Omega-level characters. Now, these don't have to have god-like powers. For instance, Iceman is considered an Omega-level mutant. In short, and Omega-level character is one who doesn't possess foreseeable limits, or are pretty much immortal. So, for instance, Brenna could be considered an OL character if her abilities can grow. She's already got immortality down, so then it's just a matter of strength.
These characters will play a more pivotal role in the story, so it's important that you can write them well. :D If you would like to try one, go ahead and create a profile, label the pm "Omega" and send it to me. I'll determine if it fits the category or not, but even if it doesn't, you could still play the character. ;) Remember though, they do still have to have some limitations/weaknesses. Those are still a must, though they don't have to be as big as usual. Also, I'll only be accepting two besides mine, so it'd be best to get one in soon!
Hmm I might claim one for brenna's growth if that's okay >.>.... since i could see her powers growing (for example her shape-shifting powers growing and maybe her powers go from touch to a field about five feet from her body and that kinda thing) >.> Since you mentioned her it made me think of it XD.
That would be perfectly fine! :D Though that means that there's only one more spot open. :P I'll have to edit how the characters are set up in the profile page to represent that. Unfortunately, that will have to wait until I'm done mowing the lawn. :\ I'll also post in Wisteria then, so sorry for the wait!
