[Info Redacted]
[Redacted] Savizcor Street

Dear Parent or Guardian of [Redacted]

Hello! If you are receiving this letter then that means your child (or children) has been specifically selected for Sparrowdale Academy for the Genetically Superior. It has come to our attention that your child(ren) have a gift unique to them and makes them superior to the common man. Whether you know this or not -we've been carefully observing children in as many outlets as we can. Schools are what we observe the most and our records indicate that your child may have an ability. Do not be alarmed--- we, as a school, are based around these unearthly powers and we are just trying to find a place where their skills can fit in among others like them. Below you will find a student form in which you will need to fill in all information from the boxes and any additional information required.

We strongly advise you talk to your children about this, because they may not want to partake in this cause, but trust us, it would be a golden opportunity missed to enhance the spoken child's powers, along normal subjects too.

Now please bear in mind that we aren't forcing you to do anything. This is merely a request and we will handle your precious child with the utmost care. You must bear in mind that if you've been keeping up with the news there's a storm of Anti-Meta-human hysteria building up and it's unpredictable where it may lead. Your child may be wrongly persecuted or killed if outed. Right now the safest place for your child is with us.

You must also understand that you may not see your child(ren) for months on end. We believe that secrecy is security. We are sending from an anonymous address and request that you send letters to this address and this one only. We will confiscate any unauthorized forms of communications with the outside world. We specifically handle these letters. We also ask that you destroy this letter completely to keep our anonymity.

Yours Sincerely,
[Redacted].
Headmaster

The Othergrounds:

The Paradise that simply didn't exist


In a nutshell: A modern drama about survival of several super-powered teens trapped in an abandoned academy/mansion/Joint having adventures. What fun.


This was one of the many letters sent out by the so called "Sparrowdale Academy of the Genetically Superior" one of the biggest mysterious of America and the growing Meta-human phenonmenon. Meta-human children were reportedly sent to this Academy by the boatload and for months it appeared that the school was going strong. Until one day fairly recently the school went dead. No letters were sent out and hundreds of parents were left in the dark about what happened. Recruitment letters were sent from anonymous locations--- usually empty or fake buildings were set as the return address. It was impossible to track down the school as it didn't exist. What happened to the children was ambiguous and many are actively attempting to track them down. Most assumed the worst that they're dead and it's all a sham. While the more idealistic and optimistic wanted to believe that life in the school was too busy for their children to return. In fact it's another story...

The story will center around one particular group of teenagers sent to the school unconscious only to find the Sparrowdale Academy near-desolate for what appears to be months with few instances of a struggle occuring. These people are among the last to be sent to the Academy and are completely unaware of what happened before. Trapped there as the defenses placed don't allow for an easy escape. The story will unfold as the grim truth of why the place (which used to be "paradise") has turned into a ghost town... or mansion would be the more accurate term. Finding new clues and either searching for a way to escape, or a way to survive here. What they don't know is that a powerful enemy will rear it's ugly head and give them a true test that's unlike any other.

The main point of this RP is surviving in this empty place known as the Othergrounds. Your character(s) can either want to escape, or take the place because of the freedom. In between there will be character development and best of all the power of friendship. Derp. Also lots of conflict and wangst.

Yeah. I'll bite. I'll do it. I need to brush up onmy writing skills anyhow. I've gotten a bit rusty in the last few months. I use to do quite a bit of writing for fun, but not so much anymore. that's why i like RPing. It's fun and i get to help write the story, but with others.

I'll see about a sheet later.

I am trying to figure out a good character for this. I want to make someone with super-senses who can smell and hear better than anyone else, with good night vision, and the power to see frequencies outside the visible light spectrum, but I wanted to hinder them by saying they were completely color blind and saw things in shades of black and white, so I don't have to make up imaginary colors...then, I wanted to say they had wings and could fly, but were fragile because of hollow bones...should I take out the wings, or leave them?

You can has wings since I have a character in mind that can partially turn into light and fly.

I will probably join this because I haven't actually joined anything so far. I'm thinking about a guy that can turn into his own shadow. Not completely invisible, you can still see his shadow, and not completely useless. He can still interact with other things shadows, and their shadows can too. So basically if you want to punch him or something you've got to punch the air like a retard and hope your shadow punches his. The only problem is he's defenseless in the light.

Basic Information

Name: Ceyx Celsus
Nicknames: NA
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Height: 5’7”
Weight: 143 Pounds



Appearance

Hair Color: He has medium length dark brown hair
Eye Color: Brown
Nationality: He has a Mediterranean look. Think Greek or Italian
Physical Appearance: Well to start his face needs a bit more detail. His eyes are medium spaced; he has a thin lipped mouth and a nice clear complexion. He’s often seen with a nice even pencil thin mustache and other than that he’s always clean shaven. The only thing that is messy about his appearance is his hair.

As for the rest of his body he obviously has long arms and legs because on his height. He doesn’t have any real distinguishable mark or features on his body aside from a small birthmark located on his left shoulder blade. He keeps his appearance neat. He trims his nail and keeps them short. He also keeps excess body hair at a minimum. ie. Chest hair. He’s not particularly well muscled or anything, but he’s not wiry or Gangly either.
Attire: As for his preferred style of clothing, well he tends to dress conservatively despite the fact he’s from a well off family. That means he’s typically seen in a standard black or gray three piece business suit, never blue or pinstripe. Whenever he wears casual clothes he likes neutral colors as well. Beige, brown, black, grey, and white are all you’ll ever see him wear. And as a side note he’s always wearing a hat to cover his hair. His hair is the only unordered thing in his life he has direct control over.

Personality

Innate Personality: Inwardly He thinks in a logical manner. He looks at things in such a way as to try and understand them. He often lies around doing nothing when trying to solve a problem or understand it. Like when doing spelling. So he’s quite often he’s alone and doesn’t like to be disturbed when he’s thinking.
Outward Personality: However he’s a completely different person when around others. He’s not the most outgoing person, but he does like talking to others. Often times he will start some sort of intelligent debate to gauge how much his peers actually know about stuff. He does enjoy a good joke, but often his are kinda odd and not very funny to other folks. So he had an odd sense of humor.
Hobbies/Skills: He likes to work Sudoku puzzles and play RTS games. Yeah he like video games like any other teen.
History/Bio: Nope. Not here. I tend to put in a bit of background in my Ops however.

Favorite color: (Favorite color here)


Abilities

Power: Ceyx’s power is fairly strait forward for the most part. Technopathy. In short he can create a mental link with nearly machine as long as it’s run by a computer of some sort. How advance it is determines how much control and interaction he can have with it. In essence he can hack them with his mind. Things like home PCs for example are of medium complexity and he can gain a large degree of control of these with relative ease. But things like mainframes are currently out of his control for the most part. He can assess them and play around in them, but he’s really not much more than an annoyance and would get expelled from the system if found in it. So he’s gifted, but not a super cyber terrorist or anything like that.

Also. Because of his interaction with Computers he has a very intricate understanding of mathematics. Even when presented with an unfamiliar concept it would only take him, at most, an hour or two to master the concept. That’s partly because of how he works with the Data and different types of computer code made him adaptable in terms of numbers and the like. He’s also good at finding correlations and patterns in everyday life most folk might miss.

Weaknesses: In order for him to use his ability he has to use a large amount of Brain Power. Thankfully his ability allows him to access him minds inner potential while using his Technopathy. But otherwise this extra processing power in unavailable to him. So it’s not like he’s a super genius. It also leaves him disorientated if he’s expelled from a system unexpectedly. Because his mind has to deal with the sudden loss of ability. This extra brain power allows him to sift through all the data that he then can access.

As mentioned above he’s great at math, but when it comes to other for illogical subjects like grammar and spelling he suffers. This is in part because despite the rules set up for these systems, there are too many exceptions for him to truly understand it in a proper way. If there was a set up system for these exceptions he could get it, but there isn’t.

Sometimes people confuse him as well. Most folks he can get a general understanding of, but others that tend to act irrationally he avoid simply for the fact they aren’t predictable. He doesn’t like randomness. The unknown he can deal with so long as it can be understood, but pure randomness he will not tolerate.

Other: Well, pudding.

Seems fine. Just one thing; what did you mean that he's defenseless in light? Shadows get darker in bright lights.



@Put: Accepted.

My character actually isn't going to have wings like an angel. She's going to have her arms as wings, and her hands serving the purpose of alula, which means they might have less dexterity than the average person.

Shine a torch or something on his shadow and it's like he isn't there. I need some sort of weakness.

Edit: I'm banned from my computer for a while and I can't read any of the spoiler, so could you pm them to me?

Basic Information

Name: Nicole Armstrong
Nicknames: Nicky, Swan
Gender: Female
Age: 16
Height: 5’7”
Weight: 55.3 lbs.

Appearance

Hair Color: Pure White
Eye Color: Indigo Blue
Nationality: Caucasian

Physical Appearance: Nicole has an extremely thin, hourglass-shaped form, which would initially make her appear delicate, if she were not built with lean, powerful muscles. Because her mutations are bird-like in nature, her arms have turned into wings. With the appearance of a beautiful avian, her entire body is covered in feathers that are largely pure white, with a soft texture, and remarkable sheen similar to silk. However, Nicole also has scalloped markings on her feathers, similar in form to a female snowy owl. These markings, strangely, possess an adamantine luster, and are practically metallic in appearance, resembling pure chromium in their brightness, but also having a slightly bluish cast, like the element Osmium. As a result, Nicole gives off dazzling reflections that make her entire body seem to glow, although it is possible she does glow, in reality. Her wings, having grown remarkably larger to enable enhanced flight abilities, possess a gigantic wingspan that from a distance appears to be twice her body length (possible wingspan is 11’2”). The undersides of Nicole’s wings do not have markings like the rest of her body, and are completely white, except for the first five primary feathers on her wings, which possess scalloped markings on the edges in a fashion similar to a gull. While the feathers on these wings are often spread out in a shape similar to an eagle’s, Nicole can close together the spaces between them in order to increase her wing aspect ratio, and make a shape similar to that of an albatross’ wingtip. The hands on her wings located at the carpal joint that take the place of alula, have adapted to become more powerful. Although shaped like normal human hands, the pinkie finger has fused with the wing, and as a result there are only three fingers and a thumb. These hands, starting just past where the wrist would have been, are covered in fine black scales, much like the foot of a bird. Each finger is tipped with remarkably long talons that are razor-sharp. Starting at the base of the hands, there is a streak-like marking of silvery-blue metallic scales that trails onto the middle finger and fades at the very tip of the talon. The talons themselves on each finger also have silver streaks on them, accentuating their curved shape. Nicole’s feet have also transformed as part of her mutation. Like her alula-hands, just below the ankle, her feathers change to black scales. However, the shape of her feet has dramatically changed. Although possessing the original five toes, all of them have grown so that the toes on the outside edges are shorter than the third toe in the very center, and all of them are long and nimble, like fingers. The toenails have turned into extremely large, wickedly curved black talons with metallic streaks accenting their shape. A third toe has grown from Nicole’s heel, making the foot capable of grasping things. Also like her hands, a metallic mark runs down her scales towards her center toe.

Nicole’s face, while still having an oval shape, has altered with her powers. Her entire face and neck are now covered with pure white feathers, absent of markings, which begin as soon as they reach the edge of her face where the hairline and ears would begin. Nicole’s waist-length hair has been replaced by long, thin feathers, tipped with the same metallic markings as the rest of her body, creating an illusion similar to hair, but also further causing her to resemble a bird. Her hair-feathers fall to about the end of her neck, and are curved similar to a Palm Cockatoo’s. Nicole’s nose and mouth have fused together to form a shiny black beak, similar in shape to an owl’s, the feathers on her face making it seem shorter than it actually is. The tip of her beak, much like her talons, has a metallic streak that runs down its center edge, accenting its curved tip and making it seem sharper. Nicole’s eyebrows have faded into feathers, but now form part of small white ear-tufts that run along the sides of her face and end just past her hairline, at the edge of her facial disk. Nicole’s eyes still remain round-almond in shape, with larger-than-average pupils that reflect light, and indigo blue irises, although a few changes are present. The rings around Nicole’s eyes, which are normally pink in humans, have turned black, giving them a wolf-like quality that makes them piercing. In addition to her normal eyelids, Nicole has also developed a nictitating membrane (Third eyelid), which is clear. Although it is unclear if she glows all the time or reflects light, Nicole does appear to glow when exposed to starlight at night.

Attire: Because she is color blind, Nicole never wears anything that has color, as it is too easy to mismatch things that do. As a result, her main outfit consists of a pale grey cotton jumper with a pocket similar to a hoodie’s on the stomach. However, to accommodate her wings, the sleeves have been hacked off, along with much of the sides of the jumper itself, and the holes edges sewn to avoid unraveling, although it was done carefully, so the top would not be inappropriate or revealing. With this Nicole also wears matching grey yoga pants, which are loose and made from a flexible fabric that allows freedom of movement. Around her neck she wears a plain black chord that is tied around a clear quartz crystal, which is beautifully polished, and is never removed. Nicole often walks around barefoot in an attempt to avoid damaging the down on her feet, and because she prefers using her feet instead of her hands to hold things.

Personality

Innate Personality: Nicole by herself is very deep, having many complex thoughts that could probably confuse people, and somehow managing to keep up with them and focus on the world around her as well, despite the number of distractions that assault her regardless of location. Preferring largely to be alone, and simply observe from a distance, she is considered to be a typical loner. Much of this is because she can do more by herself, and before she became a meta-human she was often let down by others if she agreed to be in a group. When alone, she feels more comfortable doing things she enjoys, such as mimicking bird calls, and flying, in general. She also enjoys dancing, but often does not like being watched when doing so, even if she is particularly good at it. Nicole enjoys drawing pictures and writing, crocheting, sewing, and almost obsessively polishing the crystal she wears on her neck, her wings never seeming to stain. However, her powers also sometimes make her more irritable. Due to her incredible range of vision, smell, and sound, she can hear things others can’t, and as a result, ultrasound and infrasound that is normally inaudible to others can be a noisy racket, and electromagnetic waves outside the visible light spectrum can make being around electric devices or radios horribly confusing. Due to having Monochromacy, Nicole can only see in black and white, and cannot distinguish color, which further complicates her ability to see EM waves. She often relies very little on sight, as to do so can sometimes cause embarrassing accidents. Her nose is also incredibly sensitive, and as a result, it is difficult to be around bad smells, or good smells that have strong concentrations. She often is repelled by scents considered to be pleasant, such as perfume and cologne, and may make a disgusted face unintentionally around people who wear it. She also harbors jealousy towards those with normal hands, considering strong fingers and wrists to be a luxury she does not have. Overall, however, Nicole is extremely energetic, and always seems to fidget restlessly, as though her hands (Or feet) must always be occupied with something.

Outward Personality: Preferring not to make enemies, Nicole tries to be respectful towards people, although sometimes she doesn’t always pull it off. Something almost always seems to go wrong when she speaks to someone, and the results make her dread meeting new people. Often, things that wouldn’t bother most, like holding a cell phone or electronic device, will make it hard for Nicole to focus on a conversation. If someone is wearing perfume or cologne, she will involuntarily wince or paw at her nose, because the smells are often too heavily concentrated or strong, and it can make her nose burn. Habits people act on without thinking, like drumming fingers on a desk, are extremely distracting, as well as annoying. Because of this, Nicole tries to be polite, but might end a conversation quickly, afraid of saying anything rude or harsh, and then walk away before she does something wrong. For her, communicating is very tiring, simply because her senses can split her focus and distract her, or she finds someone repellent. She also struggles to see things from someone else’s point of view, considering she does not know what colors look like, and the fact that she also sees things others do not. It is a similar case with hearing and smell, and therefore people cannot describe events to her without being asked a million questions. A similar issue results when Nicole tries to describe things from her own point of view.

A few occasions when she will actively show anger or disgust is when someone makes fun of her for being color blind, or when people complain about what their powers have done to them. Upon hearing people whine about their situations, she will often angrily tell them they are lucky, as most people can confirm that their hands are still useful, having strong fingers and wrists, and that she didn’t realize how wonderful strong human hands were until she lost them. Because of her general dislike of people who pity themselves, Nicole can often be considered mean or forceful, although part of her anger is envy.

Hobbies/Skills: Nicole is amazingly skilled with various techniques that require attention to detail, as well as nimble or small hands, without needing a lot of strength. A fan of soft fabrics and intricate patterns, she is skilled at crocheting, one of few kinds of work she can do with her alula-hands, in addition to being able to sew tight stitches by hand, a skill she uses frequently to patch holes in her clothing, or make openings in new shirts to fit her wings. She also likes to polish stones by hand, having a knack for figuring out the effects of various textures on certain kinds of rocks. In addition to these skills and hobbies, Nicole also loves to draw, read, and write, although she must find a special location free of distractions to do so. She is also a good dancer, and an agile flier, but she does not like to be watched while doing these things.

History/Bio: Nicole was born in a suburb of Texas, and grew up her entire life in the same small neighborhood community, her parents quickly discovering that she was colorblind at the age of three, when they learned she could not distinguish colors. However, she never suspected anything strange about herself until she began to mutate at the age of ten. When this happened, her toes elongated, and her hands changed anatomically. Suddenly, she found that she could no longer grasp things that normally weighed very little before, and her bones became hollow, making her half of what her weight should have been. In addition, soot grey feathers began to sprout on her arms, and her hair changed to be the same color, her nails turning black. Her eyes, which had been grey originally, deepened into a shade of indigo blue, and her vision, although always having been in black and white, altered as she began to see frequencies outside the visible light spectrum in the form of different shades, and developed powerful night vision. Shortly after, her sense of smell and hearing altered as well, giving her three super-senses that can never be turned off. However, she was often miserable because of this. Her parents had to come up with excuses to keep her from going to school, before finally withdrawing her completely and arranging for her to be homeschooled. Still, Nicole could hardly focus, as her super senses distracted her heavily from her work. Eventually, though, what she now calls the ‘cygnet stage’ was over, and at the age of thirteen, her grey feathers fell out, being replaced by pure white ones, and her hair also changed color as well. When her new feathers grew in, she gained the ability to fly, which she enjoyed greatly. Later, her parents received a letter, and decided to send her to Sparrowdale Academy, to which she happily agreed. However, this does not mean she is not nervous.

Abilities

Power Class: Animal, Super System, Cosmic, Energy

Power: Nicole’s first, and most obvious ability, is flight, similar to most birds. Due to the size and build of her wings, she is capable of flying at an average speed of 105 miles per hour, and reaching speeds of up to 200 miles per hour in a stoop dive, making it nearly impossible for people to outrun her on land. She can perform incredible maneuvers in the air, soar and glide, and can even hover and fly backwards, due to the ability to change her wing aspect ratio. Because her arms transformed into wings, Nicole’s hands lack proper wrists, and are unable to move as effectively, but are tipped with large, razor-sharp talons that can crush things with surprising force. Nicole’s large wingspan also makes her capable of attacking opponents much larger than her in the air, and a blow from one of her wings can cause severe injury. Her feet, which have long toes that are nimble like fingers, are built like a bird of prey’s, tipped with extremely large, razor-sharp talons designed to cut through flesh. Because of their flexibility, they can be effectively used in the place of hands to hold and grasp things. The power in Nicole’s feet by far surpasses the strength of the talons on her alula-hands, and allows her to create a powerful vice grip that can break bones. Her second, less obvious ability is her powerful eyesight. While she is colorblind, and thus sees things in a fashion that resembles a black and white film, she has the ability to see electromagnetic waves from the entire spectrum, from radio waves all the way up to gamma frequencies, in the form of different monochrome shades, in a nutshell. The downside is that while this power can be useful, it is also painfully distracting; as she can see any sort of signal or energy that is given off by devices or creatures, which can badly confuse important things such as depth perception. As a result, Nicole seldom relies on sight alone, for fear of crashing into something, although she has incredibly good night vision, and is more likely to use it when it is dark. Her sense of smell, overall, is perhaps unrivaled by any creature. Her olfactory capabilities exceed that of creatures such as the bear, making her able to detect things from up to 30 miles away, although much like her eyesight, her nose can be hypersensitive, and even a small smell can overwhelm her and make her feel sick. Her auditory capabilities, like her sight, are unrivaled in their hearing range, Nicole being able to hear both infrasound and ultrasound, as well as allowing her the incredible sensitivity that is similar to an owl’s in accuracy. However, just like all her sensory powers, her hearing makes her extremely vulnerable. High or low-pitched sounds are audible to her, and everything sounds much louder, so it is easy to hurt her by placing the decibels of a sound past the pain threshold, and adjusting the hertz to a level only she can hear. Even if a weapon is not used, just shouting close by can cause pain.

Nicole’s final power, which she only uses when she absolutely needs to, is the power to shoot a powerful blast of white plasma from her mouth, drawing the energy from a source that possibly comes from a distant star, as she does not contain the energy in her body until moments before she uses the attack, and appears to glow when exposed to the light of stars. This plasma, taking a form that seems to be a beam of solid white lightning, is extremely powerful, and illuminates the area around it, effectively dispelling shadows and rendering powers linked to them useless when the attack is used. This attack in strength surpasses most normal energy attacks, and requires a large amount of energy, so it can only be used once in a fight before Nicole exhausts herself. As a result, it is a last resort attack. Because of the speed and power of the beam, it is impossible to dodge. However, certain kinds of defenses or mutants are capable of withstanding the attack.

Weaknesses: Because she needs to be able to fly, Nicole weighs relatively little, and has hollow bones. While they are remarkably strong, and can take several hits, plenty of specific kinds of attacks, or people with super strength, can break them. Her eyesight, while unrivaled in the capability to see frequencies, is also a weakness, because she is colorblind, and sees EM waves in shades of black and white, rather than new colors. As a result, electrical devices, as well as anything else that gives off energy otherwise not in the visible light spectrum, can badly disorient important senses, effectively making her blind. Her sense of smell, similar to her eyesight, can also be overwhelmed by bad scents, causing a reaction sometimes compared to a case of asthma, as she will struggle to breathe, and begin to panic. Her hearing, however, by far, is her worst weakness. Because she can hear frequencies outside human ranges of hearing, she is easily injured by weapons that would be harmless to others. Already able to hear quiet things, simply shouting close by can cause pain. However, by taking a sound and changing the frequency so that it does not affect human hearing, and then adjusting decibels past the pain threshold, Nicole can be effectively beaten without harming anyone else, because she is the only one that can hear the loud noise. Nicole’s White Plasma attack, while impossible to dodge, can be blocked by very thick shields, or withstood by stronger mutants, although if hit directly, it will still cause a large amount of damage. The main disadvantage is, while extremely powerful, Nicole can only use this attack once per fight, as it severely drains her.

Burst Potential: None (Previously Omicron)

almost enough to get the IC up. I foresee Nicole and Cyex have issues. simply became of the natures of their powers. as his power is tech oriented he'd prefer to be around technology.

and they have while not exactly polar personalities, they would be different enough for communication the be difficult I feel. Cyex like to be alone while thinking and not to be disturbed while Nicole is a total loner. Cyex like folk, but is simply selective a to whom he like to be around. o I foresee oddne when they meet.

Nicole is actually based a lot off of myself, in regards to personality. She tries to be nice to people, but if she thinks she can't do it, then she'll try to end the conversation and get away, which is pretty often. She doesn't actively seek to be social, and doesn't mind being alone, so that's why she's a loner. She also can't really understand another person's point of view, because she doesn't see in color, she was born colorblind, and her senses make it impossible to understand how others see the world.

As for conflicts, she doesn't dislike technology because of a stupid reason. The reason she doesn't like it is because it's practically like seeing one moment, and then being blinded by a bunch of different colors the next. She can't see where she's going, and she might do something horribly embarrassing, like fly into a wall or something. However, she can use her hearing and smell in such cases, but machines give off humming noises that would be distracting, too.

She would try to be nice to Cyex, but he might notice the swan girl seems to be avoiding him after awhile.

I knew thats why shed avoid him. he himself wouldn't emit any kind of EM radiation exert perhaps while connected to a computer. but the turf with him might bother her. so yeah.

Well, it's possible for the two to talk, but he would have to walk out far into the woods or forest or some other isolated non-technological area to speak with her, because anywhere else in a technologically advanced dome is probably too much. She's actually got a bunch of unique skills. She can pick up things about a person just by smell.
