From Page 1 of the other OOC thread comes....



I would love the chance to contribute to this marvelous set of stories and would appreciate a chance to play in this world under a great storyteller. I do however have a lingering sense of dread of ever meeting the little alphabet guy.

Anatomic Separation, Variable Split, Action - Full Round, Duration - Continuous. pr 6 [3pp]
{In his budding abilities to mitosis, like Entier could, Martin has developed the capacity to split off body parts and let him retain control over that matter. This is the Simulacrum ability he used for spying. He split off a hand, eye, ear, and nose and used morph to make it look like a little version of him (and morph to cosmetically cover the loss of those body parts).}

***************

Appearance: Martin is 5 foot 6, still not grown into his adult height. He has sandy blond hair and light brown eyes. He wore glasses until his eyes corrected themselves and still unconsciously ‘adjusts’ them, especially when nervous.

65% Oxygen, 18% Carbon, 10% Hydrogen, a bit of Nitrogen, and a smidge of other stuff: Calcium, Phosphorous, Iron, Sulfur, etc… make up the Human body and Martin can describe them all.
Martin Curie was never the most popular kid, he had a fondness for science and chemistry, unconsciously drawn to it, even from a young age. This targets a kid for bullying and after the third bloody nose his parents recommended he go out for wrestling just to keep the bullies off of him. Even then, he never really bulked up, just became wiry for his small size.

If the name is familiar it is because he is indeed descended from Marie and Pierre Curie, the famous chemists and physicists. (or so he believed his whole life) This fact likewise did not endear him to the hearts of would-be-tormentors.

Discovering his abilities was a rather traumatic occurrence – during a wrestling match he abruptly ‘melted’ into a rippling gold puddle of goo. He came to facing a man in a HazMat suit in a quarantined building. His parents, Jeannette and Basil, intelligent individuals themselves, saw their dreams for their bright son evaporate in the face of his publicly awakened Neo-Sapian powers, or so Martin believed. They try to be supportive, but don’t really know what to do with him and they seemed to carefully watch his 11 year old sister, Gabrielle, for fear she might also manifest.

Though, this was, in fact, a lie. Martin's parents are a single entity known as Entier. She was a collection of unstable molecules cloned by Dr. Meinstein for his 'Primes' in the bowels of Patriot Robotics. She gained sentience and learned how to manipulate her liquidy form and inherent command over the covalent and ionic bonds in objects she touches. She escaped Patriot Robotics with her donor host, a Neo-Sapien boy with the ability to affect molecules named Martin) and fled to France where, in her desire for a mate and to provide a family for the orphaned Martin, she split off to form Basil Curie, then had another 'child', Gabrielle (Elle).
Martin (Prime) grew to young adulthood but was killed when his powers were revealed to townsfolk (saving victims of a crash, no less).
In their/her grief and loss, Entier fabricated a new 'Martin' from her/their mass and raised him as their son.
They, unbeknownst to Martin, joined a terrorist organization (a reaction to the pain and loss they were still reeling from) in misguided efforts that no one should lose a companion like they/she did.

Martin tries to be unobtrusive. Maintain his studies. Continue wrestling for exercise and because he feels it may still keep bullies off of him (not fully comprehending that his intuitive grasp of the manipulation and destruction of cohesive bonds of chemicals is a potent deterrent in its own right).

Complications:
GF - Tatjana, unstable
Puddle - (Fluxx's imperfect control over his cohesion means that sometimes powerful impacts (physical or emotional) or the application of heat can cause him a temporary and messy 'accidents' as some or all of him dribbles to the ground).
Science - (He's subject to the natural laws. For example, if he's submerged in water for a long time, although immune to suffocation, he still has to pull oxygen from somewhere. Bubbles of Hydrogen fizz up from him as he strips and recombines usable O2 molecules. This could just be flavor or this could alert someone he's trying to hide from. To transmute a gallon of water to a gallon of gas requires a fair amount of carbon. He'd have to use a piece of burnt toast or a pencil, or something for the compounds he needs.)
Open to suggestions.

Picture:

For Martin, start with a young Adrien Brody.



... in one of those poses that really makes him look French and vaguely disapproving.

Edit: Spent points on Bluff, Medicine, Knowledge Physical Sciences, and Craft: Chemicals to represent likely skills gained from parents.
Edit: More skills.
Edit: 9/1/16 Added more ability to separate Anatomically and even designate a full self from a body part (i.e. teleport)


Perhaps an older Martin, envisioned by Horsenhero.

Space-born Urchin, Accident-scarred, Alliance Security Training-washout... but otherwise Ace-Pilot.

Nadia Patel

http://newseastwest.com/wp-content/uplo ... i-IPS-.jpg
Image

Nadia was born in space to a community of merchant-trader-haulers and was always more comfortable in the free-floating parts of the ship than the gravity-bound ones She thought she would be a Hauler, just like her folks and her extensive network of 'aunties' and 'uncles', the girl had an aptitude for handling the controls of any vehicle she got behind the controls of. Still, Nadia was a rebellious child. Though you can't get away with much in such a small community, Nadia delighted in getting in to where she wasn't supposed to (locked or not) and slipping through small spaces. She would steal small things, oftentimes without people realizing (that was the funnest). Usually giving them back and soothing over any hurt feelings.

But space is a cruel, cold thing. A 17-year old Nadia was flying one of the 'Whiskers', small, light tug vehicles used to position new parts for attachment and also to transverse the large mass of hauler modules without cycling through the multitude of airlocks between the interlinking parts of the ship-village, her home, The Frankenstein (she still didn't know whay it was called that).

They were docking with an old Shinigami-class patrol ship. A local Alliance officer was sweet on one of the residents of the modular hauling ship and was there for a 'con-juggling' visit, whatever that was, (Nadia just thought they were boinking).

Something on the old Alliance ship exploded out of it's side propelling the largest of debris chunks into the Frankenstein, she barely registered the explosion of one of the living modules as she looked into the cockpit of the Alliance craft. The young Alliance pilot was frantically trying to stabilize his craft and Nadia was quick to assist. She turned her own adaptive-stabilizers to full and locked on to the Alliance ship with the Whisker's magnetic tractor cables. She was monitoring the delicate operation when micro-flotsum from the accident compromised the cockpit of her own craft. She heard tiny hiss-cracks to her right just before her head and face was suctioned painfully to the breach. She felt something give in her ear and the excrutiating pain made her pass out.

She woke up planet-side in a medical facility. One of her 'aunties' from the hauler ship, Auntie Geeta, was there and filled her in. The accident destroyed some of the living modules and Nadia's own parents were among the casualties. Nadia had kept the Alliance ship from doing further damage though and even saved the crew of the Alliance vessel. The Auntie said that Nadia herself was lucky to be alive. Her cockpit was comprimised but the network of cracks was plugged... the pain she felt on her face and the loss of hearing could tell her by what. A mirror revealed a spidery network of scars on the right side of her face and the guaze covered the hollowed out ear cavity as the pinhole breach ripped much of the auditory organ(s) out.

Auntie Geeta shared good news that the pilot who Nadia saved told her heroics to... well, anyone he could and that the girl's medical expenses including the installation of a top-of-the-line bionic ear was covered by a combination of the young pilot's own well-off father and Alliance subsidies.

The rest of the hauler ship Frankenstein needed to get underway but they would be back to pick her up. The emotion-filled girl told them not to bother that she never wanted to return to them. Auntie Geeta left, forlorn.

The next year or so was a fugue of doctor's and rehab and cosmetic surgeries that reduced the terrible scarring to a fine pattern of red spider-webs that *could* be mistaken as decorative by the lay person. At 18, Nadia decided to join the Alliance Security Force because she really didn't have anywhere else to go. She went through Basic training where reflexes born of space helped her excel. She did superbly in flight simulators and was to be fast tracked to flight training when a routine psych eval diagnosed her with a situational space-related PTSD. Her progress and the prospect awaked her childhood desires to be a pilot again and having that ripped away made her fed up with the whole thing. She quit Alliance training before graduating. Now she finds herself on a train, heading for a port, no prospects for the future.

After she turned in her equipment officially she snuck back in to 'acquire' items she was training with.

Complications:
PTSD - As much as she doesn't want to face it and denies it, she does have PTSD related to her accident and space flight involving explosions.
Small chance of recognition - Despite wanting to just remain anonymous, there might be people that recognize her as a brave young pilot who saved people and got her face scarred in the process. The incident was 3 years ago, but still.
Space baby - though Ground-side for 3 years, Nadia spent most of her life in 0-G. Extended physical exertion, especially carrying things impact her harder than others.
Bionic ear - Though top of the line at it's time, the ear can break down and be buggy or potentially lose power or, as an electronic device, be hacked somehow.
Crimes - In her youth she used to take things as pranks and for fun. The stolen Alliance Flight suit and stunner were in retaliation for dreams shattered. Still could get her in trouble, though.
Budding Psychic - Nadia has the potential to be a preCognitive. The Alliance knows that and that's why they have more of an interest in her. She has no clue yet and the GM is free to have any amount of wierdness manifest because of it.

Agent Long

Personnel File # 8674359A, Agent Nathaniel Long

Origin:
Nathaniel Long was a junior researcher at a prosthetics manufacture company making new medical-grade materials - lightweight, resilient plastics. A Hulk sighting in the area prompted pursue-and-capture/eliminate directives under protocol Ross1626 and forces were sent in. (See mission logs 90548, 90591, and 90605). The Hulk, in efforts to elude pursuit, lept into the manufacturing plant, detonating an industrial heating coil by landing on it, before leaping out again.

The explosion from the damaged heating coil rocked the laboratory Nathan Long was in. At the time, Mr. Long was standing in front of a cabinet with several experimental plastic compounds and corrosives. The cabinet was toppled over on him and he lay, saturated in an unidentifiable chemical mix for hours until rescue workers directed by Homeland Security clean-up operations could dig their way to his lab and get him out. He spent several days in a military hospital, his body composition fluctuating from a viscous liquid barely maintaining cohesion to a pale plasticine capable of stretching great distances. He awoke on his own after several days in the hospital. The previously mention alterations to his physiology seemed to be permanent.

It is unknown whether the exposure triggered latent abilities or exposure to the chemical compounds (samples of which already showed degredation and half-life breakdown at time of collection) caused the change. Subsequent psychiatric evaluations preceeding the standard release of liability statements and confidentiality agreements, show his to possess a temperment suitable to our purposes and his new-found abilities could be an asset to our organization. Recemmended for training.

Family Profile:
Parents - Deceased.

Brother - Nathan has an older brother, Corporal Richard Long (USAC), that lost his legs to a land mine while on tour, honorably discharged.

Sister - Nathan has a younger sister, Kelly Long, in California who is/was an activist against the military efforts.

Training Logs:
Master Trainer Jarett Thompson -"I don't know who sent us this buttwipe but they can da#%-well take his stretchy a** back! He's snarky, mouths off every chance he gets, and can't resist showing off his abilities. Oh, he gets the job done passably but then you have to listen to him prattle on about it. Luckily there are plenty of grounds to recommend him for infiltration training, otherwise I'd throttle him myself."

Senior Trainer Phong Ngyuen - "Young Master Long shows a propensity for rashness but takes to assignments quickly and eagerly. The key to this trainee will be couching assignments in the form of games and mischiefs. He seems to take to this model of instruction readily." "AMENDMENT: Perhaps this was not the best idea. Nathan has taken to passing himself off as pieces of furniture and seeing how long it is before somebody notices. There are report that several trainees in Barracks F11 presumed the common room television was broken until Nathan's laughter at their frustrations regarding the remote gave the jest away. I, myself, have taken to inspecting my room most carefully before beginning my meditations. The student is adept but needs more discipline."

Complications:

Showoff - Nathan will casually receive the salt shaker from the kitchen without getting up two rooms away, for example.
Likes to have a good time - Since the accident that gave him these abilities, Nathan does not take life for granted. Carpe Diem!
Snarky/Mouths-off - Nathan has a tendency to say what he's thinking regardless of who he addresses. It's generally a snide comment. Activate this complication to have Nathan says something that might/will get him in trouble.

Gateway.

Jimmy Greyston can't tell you how many living people are on this planet. He can tell you that it doesn't hold a candle to the number of dead ones though.

Jimmy was born a twin but his identical brother, Timothy, never drew his first breath. (A less kind soul would say that Timothy died to escape the torment of twins being called Jimmy and Timmy their whole lives). Jimmy's parents didn't tell him that he'd had a stillborn sibling however. Not even when young Jimmy asked why the boy in the mirror looked so sad or complained about the crying that kept him up at night. But he always felt out-of-sorts - never quite able to concentrate on his studies or apply himself whole-heartedly to a task. It didn't help that he was physically unimpressive - weak and not terribly coordinated. Despite a good head on his shoulders. Luckily, not much was expected of a child of the servants in a well-to-do estate outside of South Wales. Jimmy's father tried to teach him of landscaping but the boy had no knack or interest and mostly mucked out the estate's stables.

It was at the age of 19 that the truth came to light. He went to a traveling faire and a gypsy woman read his fortune and told him of Timothy. The crone even offered to let Jimmy see his erstwhile brother. He accepted. From the very first connection it was an epiphany of all that he had been missing his whole life. Timmy, who had grown and learned alongside Jimmy, unseen but felt and missed, hinted at there being so much more in 'his world'. Jimmy was hooked. With the establishing of he initial connection, Timothy could communicate freely with Jimmy. Together they found even more resources on the occult - books and teachers (though never staying with one for too long) finding that Jimmy had an affinity in that area and left the Estate of Jimmy's youth.

They were in Asia, trying to find some place called the Sanctorum when the city was beset upon. A building exploded and debris pierced Jimmy's heart. His soul clung to Timmy's as he died. Then time stopped. It reversed. Kept going. Stopped again. Over and over Jimmy died. And with each death he could feel more of them - the ghosts, the spirits of people and things long passed. They called to him could draw upon him, hungered for him, even. He could unfuse them with a substance where they could feel again, touch again, matter again. When the crisis resolved itself Jimmy found that, for him, the Veil between the living and the dead were torn asunder. And he found a wellspring inside himself of the critical vitae, the 'substance' that souls craved.


Relatives & Contacts:
living - Charlie Greyston, Father, live-in landscaper on the estate of Edward Brighton, South Wales
living - Patricia Greyston, Mother, live-in maid on aforementioned estates.
non-living - Timothy Greyston, Ghost in Jimmy's head

Samantha Brighton - daughter of Edward Brighton, she grew up along side Jimmy. She was never put off by Jimmy's 'oddness' while they were kids. He still sends her letters on his 'adventures'. Jimmy has a crush.

Complications
Obligations (Dead brother) - There's something Timothy needs in order to pass on to the other side. Jimmy is helping him find what that is.
Low on Substance - Jimmy's powers work by him giving 'Substance' to ghosts, this can deplete HIM of substance if he usees his powers too much (GM determined). He may find himself fading, unable to affect the world in ways he wants.
Somewhat cowardly - Jimmy remembers dying, the pain of it, the terribleness. He doesn't want to experience that again. He will try to stay on the sidelines of combat as much as possible.
Medium - Jimmy can't stop seeing ghosts and ghostly manifestations. It can be distracting, even frightening, at the worst possible moments.

Cyclone

Post by Flynnarrel » Tue Jul 04, 2017 12:19 am

Cyclone

Jamal Reese and his family moved to this city from Brazil when he was in his mid teens. Apparently being a curator at the city's central museum is a hazardous profession because Jamal's father was killed working late one night when the museum was broken into leaving his family without means of support.

Jamal, who'd studied capoeira most of his life and was a natural athelete turned to crime to support his aging mother and younger sister. He learned how to get into places and past locks and, since this was dangerous work, started studying the combat applications of a chain and incorporating that with his martial art style. To great effect. He joined one of the gangs even, and though he never invited them back to his home he met them for petty jobs and to split the take. He went by the nickname 'Mako'.

After a few moderately successful jobs Jamal's mother found out. The shock sent her already weakened heart into spasm and she was admitted into the hospital that very night. Guilt racked Jamal but he knew the hospital bills would just pile up. After a botched job where he barely got out he visited his mother and she extracted a promise that Jamal would never steal from innocent people again. He tearfully agreed. Those were his last words to her.

Costs for a funeral are almost as bad as the costs for keeping someone alive.

With few other options, he put on a mask (like that did anything), and went to the hideout of one of the rival small-time gangs. He broke in and found their stash - the loot from a recent jewelry store heist. He took it, returning the Jewelry but keeping the money, presumably from the register. He figured a finder's fee was not unreasonable. Something similar happened when he broke up a mugging, the three guys with knives were a challenge, but Jamal escaped unscathed. He returned the woman's purse and rifling through the mugger's pockets, figuring it was fair to take what they had since they tried to rob someone else.

While he was counting his take he was confronted by NightLark - a martial arts based vigilante. She'd known about his shady past and was willing to give him a chance to redeem himself.

The dreadlocks are a wig he wears as Cyclone. He also uses a much deeper voice and emphasizes his Brazilian accent more as Cyclone. And his costume are black and greys.

Complications:
Teefa Reese - sister, 17, pretty, works as waitress at The Pork Pie, a greasy establishment with greasier clientel. Jamal hates that she's subject to that life.

Criminal - Jamal's general description could be known in connection with several B&Es. He doesn't hang around cops very long. Other sidekicks might be biased against him because of it.

Debt - His mother's hospital bills are still due.

Former gang - Jamal's old crew, The Steel Sharks, (I know, stupid name, right?) could still be looking for Jamal, sore over the fact that he quit.

I don't usually like high-powered games but I have this character idea I'd like to try.
*****************************************************************************************

The United Coalition of Planets is the premiere presence in their universe uniting over 1000 planets across a multitude of star systems. It encourages peaceful dealings and communication across the stars. But the U.C.P. are no dummies. They know they must also be prepared for conflict. Toward that end they designed the Alpha Class starship for both exploration and confrontation, their flagship of which is the U.C.P. Praxis, commanded by Captain Jonathan Trent, a middle age Earthling with a distinguished record in both tactics and diplomacy. They gave him the best crew of science officers, medical staff, and engineers to keep the ship running smooth. Its zero-point drives would run near forever producing all the energy it would need and the onboard replicators can keep them in whatever physical matter they need be it parts or food and sundries for the crew. They would be prepared for anything. So when they were sucked into a wormhole created by a collapsing star (they were shielding a nearby inhabited planet from the effects its deadly supernova), and they emerged into a completely different Universe, they were momentarily taken aback by the fact that, apparently, their Universe was built on a mere fraction of the scale as this one. Buildings were planet-sized and people were formidable even without, apparently, some of them possessing strange powers. The Praxis started by gathering allies in this new Universe, one of which is an interplanetary corporation known as Cosmic Coil. They promised to help with whatever multi-dimensional research they could and otherwise keep on the lookout for ways the Praxis could use to get back to their home dimension.

The U.C.P. Praxis looks to be a foot-long toy model. Anyone looking closely will see the intricate details and maybe even several minuscule beings looking back at you from portholes. It was determined that the crew cannot venture outside of the Praxis due to the size difference and their bodies not able to process the size of this verse's Oxygen molecules so they act as one unit under Cpt. Trent. It is usually his voice or even a holo-projection of him that the Praxis emits during briefings (though occasionally it'll be a technician or counselor if their experience is needed).

Complications:
Motivation/ Sworn duty - Peace and Protection, Captain Trent still maintains the code of the United Coalition of Planets - Protect the innocent life, establish and maintain peace.
Homesick - The Praxis is looking for a way home.
Explorer vessel - The Praxis is likewise here to gain information on Strange new life, and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone before. They should have been careful what they wished for.

Drusella was an intelligent and quick orphan but too acerbic and brusk to be well liked. The horns and faint smell of sulfur than hung about her guaranteed that she was shunned at the orphanage and ridiculed and hated by the other children (and administrators). She was spiraling into self-loathing when a genius Arcanist, Tellos the Great, who made a habit of looking for likely proteges in such places, found her. He showed her how her unique physiology could be an asset in the world of alchemy, taught her that she wasn't inherently evil (just possibly having more tendencies in that direction than others), and gave her a better life than they one she was on track for. Now, after many years in his service and study, she's ready to make him proud with her own exploits in pursuit of knowledge.

Hunt for knowledge - Drusella's hunger to expand her understanding of the world could lead her into dangerous situations.

Power Loss - If her various bandoleers and belt pouches of alchemical substances are taken from her, or if she's not given at least an hour every day to maintain her concoctions, her alchemist abilities would not work.

Thinking of a Legacy of Alys Bishop.

I liked the concept of her using her emotion control powers to keep a hulk-type character in check. With her not being around as a safety net, can this character trust himself? What about when circumstances force a change?

Knave of Hearts / Jack Clubs

The Victorian Dr. Henry Jekyll was a brilliant chemist and alchemist. His story is a cautionary tale of the duality of man. However, the decision to enact his splitting procedure on himself had much farther reaching implications. Fast forward many many decades to the heir, in ancestry if not intellectual spirit, of the dualic doctor, and recipient of the recessive gene that triggers full body transformation.
Street rat, cutpurse, and grifter Johnny Diamond prowled the alleys and subways of London looking for a purse to lift or an unattended bag or valise that he could hawk for quid. He'd lived hard ever since running away form an orphans life two years ago. 9 months ago his transformation took place and a beast of a man, strong and seemingly unbreakable with a penchant for violence and sadism cut a swath of destruction across London. The Ministry stopped him and Alys Bishop discovered the same energy signature that she used - emotional force. In Johnny, rage was given flesh, pouring forth from him in waves and driving him to destruction. She calmed the boy using her powers. She also took him on, her powers could easily keep his in check since they knew the source. The Queen of Hearts worked with Johnny to gain greater and greater control of the change and while changed.

She took Johnny on as protege in spirit if not powerset. The boy's natural penchant as a skilled thief, conman, and second-story man (her Knave of Hearts) and also his brick/powerhouse capabilities whilst transformed into the knobby-fleshed, muscle-laden man who calls himself 'Jack Clubs' served as an interesting counter point on missions of hers. She, in turn, gave the boy purpose and helped him maintain control of Jack Clubs.

Attributes 26 + Saves 12 + Skills 16 + Advantages 18 + Powers 48 = 120

Complications:

Sucker for a pretty face - Johnny fancies himself a ladies' man. With his good looks and charisma he's not wrong. But his judgement is often impaired when it comes to the fairer sex.

All the Rage (Knave of Hearts) - Johnny likes to be center of attention, show off (especially when girls are around), and has a penchant for flamboyancy. Feel free to suggest any sort of stunt that would keep him center of attention and get him in trouble.

All the Rage (Jack Clubs) - Jack has a short temper and can easily be blinded by his intense Id-like emotions. His usual response is violence.

Control is an issue - Under the Queen of Hearts's tutelage Johnny has a better handle on when he transforms into Jack Clubs and the actions they take while Jack is in the driver's seat. That control is threatened in times of peak anger or peak danger for Johnny. "I took a bullet in my head once, the Big Guy spit it out."

Secret Identity - Johnny WANTS to be known as the Knave of Hearts, sidekick of one of the great Ministry members... but he also knows it'd be a bad idea. That makes it even more important that he doesn't slip up and become Jack Clubs accidentally, in front of witnesses. Plus, do you know how freaky it is for a 16 year old to have all his hair fall out? No recovering from that on youtube.

No Hurt Jack's Friends - Jack has learned that the Ministry and the other sidekicks are his friends (Johnny encouraged this before realizing the downside) sometimes a threat to one of them might call Jack to the surface as well. Unless they are playing the game 'Punch Brass'. Jack like 'Punch Brass'.

Tame the Beast - Jack must be calmed in order for Johnny to re-emerge. He can be forced calm (by drug or power Forcing Johnny back even when it'd be disadvantageous) or talked into calm when a crisis is over or driven to pass out from Fatigue. Easier to do as Jack Clubs is prone to surging for a brutal series of attacks.

Ever since I read about an external procedure that can alter one's morality (http://news.mit.edu/2010/moral-control-0330) I wanted to explore a super-criminal having this happen to them by a well-meaning criminal-psychologist. The criminal-team on probation is the perfect venue for this. I've always wanted to see how her story would play to completion. I've also been fascinated by the nature of duality and the idea that the original psycho personality is in there and watching this do-gooder in horror. Will she earn redemption? Will some villain find away to cause the original to resurface or pull it out entirely to a separate being prompting a fight like in that Superman movie we all pretend doesn't exist? Who knows?



*****************************************************************************
Her parents having died in one of the many super-powered fights that occurred in and around Freedom city Margaret Francis Kane was orphan and ward of the courts, in and out of the system and foster homes and generally harboring a growing hatred for the world from an early age.

Her mutant powers* emerged when her petty criminal boyfriend, just having robbed a convenience store in order to impress one of the city's many criminal gangs, and driving recklessly to avoid capture by the cops, wrapped his car around a telephone pole. Though her boyfriend was killed a vaguely reddish-blue force seemed to surround Margaret keeping the jagged metal and broken glass off of her. She fled the scene, finding that she could take to the air on broken parts of the engine block, and finding that bullets mostly bounced off the shield surrounding her.

(* At least, Maggie always assumes they are mutant powers. In truth, they may have a connection to a single session she had with a court-mandated therapist after being picked up for a misdemeanor. The therapist asked her what she wanted most in life and she responded 'enough power to get respect and do what she wanted'. This could have been Mr. Infamy.)

She resented the big gangs as much as the cops and avoided recruitment attempts, keeping to small gangs of rougher and rougher people, lending her powers to more and more daring heists. She enjoyed the terror in her victims' eyes almost as much as tearing vault doors off their hinges and killing alarm systems. She took the name 'Violet' after the color that her powers manifest as, and how similar it sounded to 'Violent'.

Eventually she was caught and locked away in a facility for powered criminals. A psychiatrist, Dr. Paul Harris, armed with a Trancranial Magnetic Stimulator and... result-driven ethics, discovered that he could tamper with the magnified magnetic fields of Margaret's mind. Over several months he reversed the polaric pathways of her brain and found her becoming less violent and less anti-establishment driven. A previously lazy ethic became hard-working and driven. She discovered remorse and asked for the chance to work *with* the law enforcement as 'Magenta' - an eager to be helpful reformed "honest" member of society.

The woman that she is today is cheerful and eager with an almost too-wide smile that, when she's gone too long between treatments, starts to crack around the edges. She's been studying psychiatric nursing to be able to help others as she's been helped.

Complications:
Reputation - Some people remember her deeds as Violet. Overcoming those prejudice's may be too much to bear. Many may assume she's elaborately faking, unable to fathom how a psycho can turn such a drastic new leaf.

Recognizable - Although MUCH more readily identifiable in her mylar suit, the criminal justice system did nothing to preserve any semblance of privacy surrounding her publicized trial. Even without being suited up she may be recognized.

Treatments - Margaret needs weekly, if not daily (if under stress) sessions in the TMS machine.

Dr. Paul Harris - Margaret thinks the best of Dr. Harris but who knows what his full agenda might be.

Power Origins - In the GM wants, Maggie's powers could be a result of a deal with Mr. Infamy. How might the cosmic wish-granter feel about one of his wishes being 'corrupted' to turn a mortal to committing good deeds?

Violet - there is still that needling dark voice of Violet in her head. It could distract her at key times.

Needs metal - her Flight and many of her powers require metal in the environment. Magenta's law-abiding nature make her hesitant to use Traffic signs and fire hydrants and otherwise cause destruction of private or city property. If she does use any environmental metal, she'll try to put it back at the end of it's use.
