Section 3 (OoC)

First this will be considered an 'alternate earth'..ie everything but a few things are pretty much identical to now.  It is even the same 'time period' as we are in.  The big event that changed was that something happened to the DNA of humans.  A few people started developing 'abnormal' gifts.  Not just ones that were born after a certain point, but spontaneously.  A 90 year old person was just as likely to suddenly gain abilities as anybody else (or a newborn).

The world governments started to panic.  These mutants were considered a serious threat.  Over time, conflicts between nations pretty much stopped, as the governments focused on dealing with these 'abnormals'. In collaboration they created Section 3.  Headed by Alex and Alexus Romana it is a collection of 'abnormals' that help protect the normal people from other abnormals that are dangerous and investigate anything unusual or paranormal.  Officially they do not exist, but they have the authority in any nation that they need to get the job done.

Characters will have 'powers', but this is not the X-Men.  Things like heightened strength, invisibility, and such are fine, but no creating black holes or controlling gravity or such. If needed I will make a more comprehensive list of what is acceptable, but I would rather just reserve the right to say "Too powerful, choose something else please"

Recently a group called the Anti-Mutant Alliance has gained popularity.  They are for the capture or disposal of anybody who gains these abilities.  Tempers are high..most 'abnormals' try to hide the fact that is what they are.

This looks interesting, even though my mind went first to X-Men
Do you mind giving a little more background or making an example character please?

The background is pretty much our own history.  Not much changed.  The main difference is that things like skin color/nationality and similar have stopped being a 'reason' for wars..people are pretty much focused on 'mutants'.  Section 3 is relatively new, in fact besides Alex/Alexus this group will be the first group in Section 3.  So it itself has not much history.  As for Alex/Alexus' history..you will have to find that out as the story progresses.

As example characters I will use them.

Name : Alex Romano
Age : Unknown
Description : 5'7", black hair, dark eyes.  Rather frail looking, and gaunt.
Powers : Spatial Awareness and Electronic Manipulation.  Spatial Awareness basically means that within 200' of himself, he knows everything that is there without having to physically see it.  Down to how many specs of dust there are.  It is impossible to get closer then this to him, regardless of abilities, without him knowing you are there.  Electronic Manipulation means he can manipulate anything that runs on electricity.  He can blow lightbulbs, hack computers, etc.  Note he can not create electricity, or direct it at anybody.  (So he can't like shoot lightning or anything).  This also has a limited range.
Perks : Near unlimited wealth, inventor.  He and his sister wear an outfit that make them identical, with people being unable to tell which is which.

Name : Alexus Romano
Age : Unknown
Description : 5'9", black hair, dark eyes.
Powers : Increased strength and reflexes.  Damage resistance.
Very agile, and can lift the equivalent of a full size car over her head.  Her body is very dense, making her very difficult to hurt.  She can take small caliber bullets without damage, but high powered ones can kill her (anything stronger then a .357 will hurt her, and has a chance of killing her).  Normal hits (from most people) will barely even tickle her.
Perks : Near Unlimited wealth, suit (above), martial arts training.

Geny Non-Mutant mercenary is fine, but you may want to consider some mutant perks .  You are going to be dealing with people and things that are not normal..and a normal character (non-mutant) will be at a disadvantage.

Ohh okay... I misread,  I thought that Section 3 was an organisation implemented by the government to stop "abnormals". I reckon I could come up with a character by the 19th if not tomorrow. Should I base the char on the sheet you've supplied or do you have another in mind?

It was implemented by the government..as a line of defense to protect normals from abnormals that would use their abilities against them.  Since people can just become abnormal any time/any place it would be impossible to put a stop to all of them, especially with basically a police force/military force.

The template I gave is fine, or you can use your own.  As long as the basic info is there

Mytical is back, guys! And the Glade is now active!!! In!

Name: Leonardo Helsing

Codename: Victor Freze (Running joke)

Appearance: Appears to be a tneenager, brown hair, white skin, gold eyes. No matter where he stands, it always looks like he is breathing in the middle of winter (breath frosts).

Age: 56

Powers: Temperature manipulation, specifically the act of freezing objects that he touches rather quickly. This temperature/ energy drain cannot be totally stopped, as he needs the energy he drains to survive. Because of the nature of this power, the hotter a place is the stronger and more noticable Leonardo will become, and the colder it is the weaker and more hidden he becomes. He doesn't appear to age, nor does he appear to need to eat (outside of the Artic circle). Powers can rapidly create a barrier of ice from the water in the air or freeze an object/ person from a point of contact. His powers to not work in reverse.

Skills: Handgun training (to quote Leonardo "Useless now because the damn thing just freeezes over!"), fencing, Mechanical and electrical engineering (cannot touch batteries without rapidly draining their power) and being a bit unpredictable.

Random facts: Leonardo gave himself the code name "Victor Freeze" after watching Batman Returns. Victor gained his powers after he died, the energy surge restarted his heart and mind. To Quote, "Oh, I died once. Must say that Hell is a rather nice place... well until it froze over. Had the damndest time explaining to the Devil that I couldn't help it, but he would have none of it, and my nice, tropical winter wonderland was forever denied to me, and I'm too much of an athiest for heaven to take me, so here I am!"

History: Leo was a kid that had a nack for anything engineering. If you had a mechanical problem, he could fix it. Your car died? Sure, easy fixup. Telephone is out? It'll be back up in the hour. Because he was doing rather well for himself, Leo dropped out of school (because back when he was a teen, you could do that after you turned 16). In a freek accident, a car Leo was fixing broke the jack it had been set up on and Leo was left to suffocate below it. Which he did. Leo was officially dead for two seconds before his genes went through their mutation, and the energy jolted him back to life. Because of the extreme "cold" his body eminated, the ground below him warped and twisted enough for Leo to worm his way out from under the car.

Realizing that he was a mutant and what that meant, Leo tried to keep hidden, moving up to the US-Canada border to hide his one telling charictaristic in the chilled climates and enrolling in different schools to hide the fact that he never aged. He has never had a girlfriend, since he would turn her into a popsicle.

He was picked up three years ago when he accidentaly applied to the same school the second time and a faculty member noticed the similarity between himself ten years before hand and himself... now. In Section 3 Leo is used mostly for capture missions and fixing the Jeep... Every. Damn. Mission. He has filed complaints to the boss man a few times, asking for the Jeep to "Please not be blown up this time." His complaints are apparently never heard.

The Nothingness

Edited by wog_edn at 20:58, 17 Oct 2011.

Name: Lisa Thompson

Alias: Face

Appearance: Her normal appearance is that of a slight built blond girl in her mid-twenties. She almost never wears her own appearance though, so none of the others know her "true form".

Background:  Lisa got her powers when she wanted them most, while she was a teenager. She used her new powers to get all the attention she wanted by making her self gorgeous at all times. She got ambushed by anti-mutant movements at the end of her teenage-years and learned how to properly put her powers to use when she managed to escape the camp. She was found by Sector 3 not too long after and does work for them whenever they need her.

Powers: Lisa can shapeshift into pretty much any living thing (within size-limitations, she cannot become bugs or elephant, for instance). She does not gain any superhuman powers this way. Her clothes doesn't change.

Skills: Lisa is a school dropout and does not have any special skills beside a little tae kwon do (though not much). She can read people rather well and is outgoing.

Equipment & weapons: A stun gun and a tight suit able to stretch so it will fit her changing. She also has a syringe with several injections of a special kind of medicine that will cause the victim to fall asleep for hours.

Fun fact: Lisa is bisexual and she also never kills people.

Here's my entry.  Hope its okay.

Name : Danica di Popolano

Age : 20's/30's

Description : 5'9" tall, athletic, long auburn hair, green eyes.

Powers :  Telekinesis/Psychokinesis.  She is also able to control and manipulate atoms to cause pyrokinesis (when speeding their vibration) and cyrokinesis (when slowing their vibration).  

Danica has been in and out of medical institutions from the age of 3.  Taken from her family, she became a test subject and moved from country to country to keep her whereabouts unknown from certain Government involvement.  She never talks about her life growing up, her treatment, what she may have suffered, or how she came to leave her custodians.  She trusts no-one and has spent many years moving around to avoid detection.

Perks : Total anonimity, she has no papers.  Basically she doesn't exist.  Years of evading exposure and others have taught her many skills.  She has embarked on relationships with men purely to gain their knowledge i.e.  survival training, bomb making, weapon skills, forgery etc.

Here's my character, hope I'm not too late! Just say if anything needs to be changed.

Name: Carl Chivalet
Sex: Male
Alias/Codename: Aether
Appearance: Slightly pale with short black hair wearing inconspicuous  clothing. Average height.
Age: Late twenties

History: Carl was different from the day he was born. As he was born, he didn't cry. He was a difficult child, despite the constant efforts by his parents. His parents wanted a "normal" son, and Carl was anything but normal. As a teenager he became more and more distant from his family and started to mix in with an "alternative" group of people. These groups of people, he soon found out, were all mutants abusing their powers. After Carl was coerced by the group to kill a human, he saw what he had done and fled the group. At the age of 24 he joined Section 3. Many of the other workers in Section 3 do not fully trust him due to his dubious background. With a calm and quiet demeanour, he is not the typical person that you made would friends quickly with; at least, that is what the others at Section 3 say.

Powers: Air displacement. However, the more air displaced, and the greater the distance it is displaced to, the more effort is required.

Misc: His average appearance means that he is easily lost in a crowd. For weapons he carries a silver revolver. Sometimes, he will use his power to fire the bullets for various reasons. (Silencing etc.)

Jack Rogers

Alias: Jack-O-Lantern

Gender: Male

Appearance:Blond hair, brown eyes. Average height. Slim and muscular.

Birthplace: Louisiana

Age: 31

Powers: Jack can make his body glow indefinitely with enough luminescence to light up a room. With concentration, he can temporarily glow like a powerful beacon, blinding onlookers. While glowing, Jack can shift to a semi-gaseous composition, granting him flight and making conventional physical attacks against him highly ineffective.

It was in Louisiana, during Hurricane Katrina in 2004 when he found out he was different. He was working as a young paramedic with a helicopter crew, volunteering to work overtime to help in the search & rescue of stranded people from the flooding.  In the twilight hour, his team found a girl sitting on the roof of her house in the swamplands. He was lowered down to retrieve her, and while she was crying, begging to get away from the cold and the dark, a soft luminescence began to glow from his entire person. His crew were kind enough to keep silent about what happened, and after running a few more missions, Jack quietly quit his job.  While he was struggling to find out how he would cope with his newfound abilities, he got drunk on a bottle of Scotch and went trick-or-treating on Halloween as himself while in his gaseous form. He ended up causing a public stir and being chased by the police, and from that pivotal point, he learned he needed to start taking himself more seriously.  

Skills & Traits: Jack is a certified paramedic, now training to become a full-on medical doctor within Section 3. He spent a lot of time in the outdoors as a kid, making him an experienced camper and hunter and having respectable athletic ability. He has become proficient with a wider array of weapons, though he is not a combatant by trade.

Fun Fact: When having a good dream or while exceptionally happy, Jack is known to involuntarily give off a minor glow.

Didn't know you'd start with all of us at the same place. If you don't mind I'll start elsewhere. No reason for a normal-ish person to be a part of Section 3's first squad. I'll meet up with the rest shortly. Give me a "call' if that's a problem.
