  1. Quanta (PL 10) GamerXZ

    Player Name: GamerXZ Character Name: Quanta Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: +2 Attack / -2 Damage, +/-0 Defense / +/-0 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Former human that inherited cosmic power and now trying to do some good with it. Residence: (Optional) Where the character normally resides / lives (if anywhere). Catchphrase: "Let The Show Begin" Alternate Identity: Alan Parker Identity: Secret Birthplace: Earth 27732 Occupation: Dimension-Hopping Cosmic Witch Affiliations: Whatever cosmic entity decides to bother them at the time. Family: Alice Parker (Mother/Alive) Louis Parker (Father/Alive) Description: Age: 21 (DoB: April 23, 1996) Gender: Male/Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5 Foot, 10 Inches Weight: 170 Pounds Eyes: Green Hair: Short, Deep Brown On top of the details above, his physical appearance is about-average with fair skin that borders on being slightly tanned, and just a little bit of bulkiness in the shoulders with a face that's typically cleanly-shaven. His normal human guise includes a deep blue tank top and black sweatpants with shoes and grey hoodie. As Quanta, their body is female and fairly-toned with milky skin and violet eyes and dark violet hair that goes down to just past their knees and they wear attire that is a mix of black with violet highlights consisting of black gloves that stop just short of their shoulders and a bodysuit along with heeled thigh-high boots and a flowing cape that is black on the outside but with drawings of eldritch runes and various beasts on the violet under-side. Cosmos takes the form of their black witch hat. They can alter their form, but this is generally what one may consider their "hero" form. Personality & Motivation: Alan is a rather kind, soft-spoken type of individual with a strong desire to learn and an equally strong desire to help those around him. He likes to take things at his own pace most of the time, and does not like to rush, preferring to enjoy the moment rather than rush onwards to the next big adventure and loves to have fun and entertain. However, when devoted to something, he becomes very serious and loses some of his wit and easy-going attitude. His desire to aid others is rooted in a strong sense of empathy born out of his father abandoning him and his mother when he was a child and not wanting other people to experience that same pain. It's to the point he can be wracked with guilt about not being able to solve certain types of crisis or not doing as good a job as he thinks he could've. However, his relationship with authority figures is complicated at best. He tends to only follow orders when he feels he has a good reason to, and is more than willing to oppose them when he feels they abuse their power. He also has no qualms about socializing with characters that others would find suspicious or shady, a possible symptom of his earlier-mentioned empathy. Powers & Tactics: Quanta derives their power from the cosmic energy infused in their body, allowing them a host of incredible abilities, including firing energy blasts, creating dimensional rifts, conjuring anything they can think of, cosmic awareness, altering the molecular structure of both themselves and other things, and so on. Quanta's abilities allow them to be very adaptable in combat, but they seem to have a preference for attacking from long range using the various weaponry and abilities they can wield. However, they are not all explosions and lasers, preferring to either try and be diplomatic with the enemy and take the time to observe the area before moving in. If the enemy is injured and seemingly unable to fight back, they'll even try to get them to surrender. Power Descriptions: When they access their powers, their eyes take on a type of Kaleidoscope design and they tend to get some type of swirling streams of cosmic energy around their hands. When morphing their body, parts or all of them get replaced by some sort of black-violet substance until they get what they want. This same substance appears as an aura around an object when they are altering it. Sometimes they may snap their fingers when conjuring something, said item appearing from a light that traces the object in the air before materializing it. Quanta may even manually draw it if they want it to assume a certain shape. Complications: Name: With Great Power: Alan is aware of the huge responsibility that his power comes with but that don't mean he's always happy about it, especially when it gets in the way of things he and Cosmos want to do, namely leading a peaceful existence leaping between dimensions and helping people in need while being with friends. Of course, when an actual crisis rears its head, it can conflict with whatever schedule he has at the time, which can put a strain on some relationships. I Am Not My Father: To say Alan dislikes his father would be an big understatement and his desire to not be him is strong indeed. It's to the point that he will prioritize saving lives over stopping the villain most times, which can be used by the enemy to dissuade him from stopping their escape by endangering bystanders. History: Alan's story is not exactly what one would call the happiest, but nor is it downright tragic. The correct term to use might be...complicated. You see, as a child, his father left him and his mother, forcing her to raise their son on her own. Alan never truly understood why they separated and whenever he asked, his mother would simply smile and pat him on the head while saying something along the lines of "we're just working through a few problems, dear. Don't worry, everything will be ok." However, Alan wasn't dumb. He could tell at a glance that his mother was just trying to make him feel better. As such, he did all he could to make her happy. He worked hard in school and even took up washing dishes and sweeping the floor, among other things, to help when she came home from work, exhausted. However, even with a decent number of friends in school, and his mother's love, he sometimes felt a tinge of envy in his heart at seeing kids being raised by two parents instead of just one. Regardless, he grew up and completed his schooling,even earning a scholarship to a local college, much to the joy of his Mom and her side of the family. Alan wanted to pursue a career that would allow him to entertain and make people happy, and his Mom supported him all the way, even after he moved out on his own. However, it seems the powers that be had other plans for the young man. One weekend, he decided to pack a knapsack and go out in the wilderness to have some time alone and to see a meteor shower that was suppose to be happening. One of the "stars" though fell not far from him and when he went to investigate, found a small alien creature in a pod. Having seen enough movies to know the government would do terrible things to an actual alien, Alan took the creature home with him and nursed it back to health. Although it couldn't speak at the time, it was still able to communicate through audio cues and drawings and Alan learned the "alien" was actually a fragment of a much larger cosmic entity whom was being held against its will by a group that was abusing its power for their own ends. Knowing that said group would likely return for his new friend he'd named Cosmos, Alan and his friend devised a plan.When they returned, Alan made it look like he had captured Cosmos and went along with the other aliens' spiels about being "galactic protectors" and even offered to take him to their headquarters. Once there,Alan learned of how the group had been constantly draining The Entity and using its power to forcibly promote peace and they even gave him the chance to join their ranks. However, upon seeing Cosmos hurt reaction to its Mother's pain, Alan instead shut down the machines holding the Entity, allowing it to break free and exact its revenge, robbing the group of their power and influence. The Entity then returned Alan to his homeworld and as thanks, allowed Cosmos to remain and bond with Alan, giving him a portion of its cosmic power to do with as he wished. Having dealt for a long time with how uncomfortable he was with an appearance that so closely matched his father's and his own insecurities about being male, Alan and Cosmos used their power to form the dimension-hopping witch, Quanta. However, it seems there are those cosmic beings who aren't comfortable with a human wielding such power, and thus came to them with a deal. In exchange for their services including cleaning up whatever messes are happening on a cosmic or dimensional scale that said deities can't deal with, they'll leave him alone. Alan and Cosmos aren't exactly happy with it, but decide to just go along with it. After all, as the old saying goes "with great power comes great responsibility".

  3. Karaoke Night at Morley's Pub

    Jaden was never one for big gatherings. Not that he was anti-social or anything of the sort, far from it, but more like he simply appreciated a bit of peace and tranquility, especially after a long day at school or hero work. However, when he heard about this Superhero Appreciation Night at this "Morley's Pub" he felt he might as well break his usual routine and get to know the locals a bit better. After agonizing over what to wear, and several snarky comments about his fashion choices from Gaia, he decided to go with something simple yet comfortable. A pair of forest green pants with black socks and shoes with a dark brown t-shirt and a black jacket over it, on the jacket's back was an outline made up of green jagged markings that formed into a large oak tree. With that done, he headed to the spot where the pub was and waltzed inside. Seeing several costumed heroes sitting at the counter suddenly made him swallow a lump in his throat. It's ok, man. It's ok, you can do this. Just...just do what that guy in that one anime always says! Believe in the you that believes in yourself! Having sufficiently psyched himself up, he walked up and took a seat, smiling at the bartender, "Hi there. I'll take a root beer float, thank you." The young man immediately face-palmed at what he had just said before deciding that he should strike up a conversation, "Hey, so I take it you guys are heroes too, huh? You probably don't know me anyways as I haven't been in town very long..." He noticed the book, "Any songs by Rush on there? I quite enjoy their music."
  4. Homegrown Breads

    "Of course. Not many people can turn down a chance to have free stuff," Jaden remarked in a good-natured manner to Maybelle's comment on getting free bread. He pulled out a piece of paper and a pen, laying them on the counter top, "Just write down your contact info and we'll get that order to you before the day is done. I won't even charge ya for shipping and handling," Chuckling, the young man let his gaze wander over to the other girl whom was once again displaying the amazing power her nose possessed. Of course, Jaden wasn't one to judge since he himself had seen far stranger things in his life. Heck, he was a walking, talking plant for crying out loud who just so happened to pull off a rather convincing impression of a human. He listened to their conversation, idly sipping a cup of water. The water having come from a jug next to him, "I take it you two know each other. If you want, I can pour you up some smoothies and you can sit down and chat. On the house, of course." Normally, giving away so much free stuff would seem suspicious but Jaden didn't really have much use for money at the moment.
  5. Homegrown Breads

    Well, it seemed the young baker was attracting all sorts of attention today. First, the rather excitable egg bread lover and now the owner of this place called...what was it?Southern Queen? Darn it, this was what he got for not taking in the sights more or taking advantage of the internet at the library. At the very least, the lady was kind enough to give a name, "Good day to you, Miss McQueen. Name's Jaden Maxwell. I'm the owner of this little shop here. You wanted quality you came to the right place." His words hardly sounded like boasting, but more like someone who took pride in their work and enjoyed it. "Excuse me?" A customer seated at a coffee table held up an empty cup, "Can I get a refill on that Deluxe Fruit Smoothie, please?" "Oh, of course. One minute, Miss Mcqueen," Jaden picked up a pitcher carrying what looked like a pink-purple gooey liquid inside and went over to refill the customer's glass at no charge before walking back, "Sorry about that, but I'm sure you understand the customer comes first. As for your bread shortage, I might be able to help you with that," Jaden pondered for a couple seconds what to do. He didn't really have much use for money but he couldn't make himself appear suspicious either, "Tell you what, I'll cut you a deal. The first batch of loaves is on the house. Your regular customers enjoy them, we can iron out the details on payment later...if they don't, you won't owe me a cent."
  6. Chosen By The Earth

    "You have no idea what you're up against, human. I could easily slaughter the whole bunch of you with a thought if I wanted to..." Evergreen's voice echoed once more, and the hoodlums began looking to and from, expecting an attack of some sort, "...But I am not without mercy. I give you my offer again. Leave this place, and no harm will befall you." "Sorry, tree hugger," The thug's leader remarked as he put the syringe back in his side pocket, "But I know you. You aren't gonna do anything...heck, my boys could burn this whole forest down and I bet the most you would do is wag your finger and get us to sit in the corner," His smugness was short-lived though when the whole forest suddenly began to shake. "TRY IT! I DARE YOU!!!!" "Boss, please stop teasing the guy who's basically a walking disaster zone!!!" One of the men roared. "N-Now, now..." The skull-faced man put his hands up, "L-Let's be reasonable about this. I-I was just having a bit of fun...you can take a joke, right?" However, he was so involved in this conversation he didn't even notice the arrow flying towards his area...until it was too late. A loud explosion went off with such force it created a smoke cloud that could be seen for miles, men were sent flying every which way, screaming in pain though surprisingly very little blood could be seen. It was obvious that the attack wasn't meant to kill...but it still ruined quite a few soldier's day. Even their leader was blasted off his feet and sent flying into the trees. However, as the rest tried to gather themselves...Evergreen's connection to the wildlife backfired on him from the violent attack and he yelped in pain and clenched his noggin as he could hear the forest in pain. That's when he got the image...some of those men had explosive tanks hidden on their attire...flame canisters...basically whatever they needed to set the forest on fire. It was then Evergreen knew what he needed to do. He shot to his feet and put a hand on the tree, letting himself melt into it and taking off at breakneck speed towards the source of the terror. The guardian of the forest was coming...and he was NOT happy....
  7. [OOC] Chosen By The Earth

    Alright, the Thugs Roll came up as DC 17 on my end. Toughness Roll came up to a measly six so you are very lucky today.
  8. Homegrown Breads

    Well, here was an excitable one. Seriously, Jaden swore his newest customer had enough energy coming off her to power a nuclear plant for the next hundred years. He had to shake his head to clear his thoughts so he could focus again, "Umm, right...Challah, you say? Yeah, we just took a loaf out of the oven. I gotta say, that's an amazing sense of smell you got to be able to sniff it out from that far away..." Almost too amazing...Jaden thought to himself, only to dismiss the thought. It was none of his business since right now, he was simply a humble baker, not on hero duty. As such, he turned back to stick his head through a door, "Carl! Can you hand me that loaf of challah? Thanks." He shut the door before one could get a glimpse of the appearance of whomever handed him the bread. As the billboard out front proclaimed, the bread looked like it had just come out of the oven and had a thin layer of butter melting over the top. He set the entire loaf of bread down before her, "Here you go. That'll be three dollars....for the whole loaf. Anything else I can get you?" He asked with a smile as warm as the bread itself.
  9. Homegrown Breads

    From an early age, Jaden Maxwell had showed a love for cooking and baking, and was surprisingly talented at it too. Even before entering high school, he was able to confidently fry simple meals like eggs and bacon, or even put together mouth-watering chocolate chip muffins for a bake sale. Needless to say, he was very much within his element when making tasty delicacies. The sight and smell of freshly-baked bread and rolls alone was enough to remind him of the good times he had growing up...and that he still had a lot to live for. Wanting to give something back to the locals, he had opened up a small bakery on Riverside. A humble and modest shop that was set up like a square and painted with warm colors such as white and soft browns. Tables and chairs were set up outside and surrounded by rows of bushes with blooming flowers and roses to give off a pleasant, inviting atmosphere. A large billboard was above the oak door displaying a large tree that had a variety of sandwiches and pastries growing on its branches. Plastered on it were the words: "Homegrown Breads. Have A Slice Of Quality." "Thank you, come again!!" Jaden called out to his latest customers as they left the store carrying their orders. He sighed and nodded to himself with a smile before turning back to fill out another order. Even though the bakery was just getting off its feet, it had already attracted a nice amount of business which likely had to do with the delicious food that came in considerable portions yet at very generous prices too. The young man took a moment to himself to look up at a portrait of a younger version of himself sitting with his Aunt and Uncle under the Christmas tree. Warm smiles everywhere. Hopefully, one day they'd be able to be together again...but for now, there were orders to be fulfilled.

    Alright, so trying to uncover the mysteries behind this unusual bakery sound like a good plot for you guys? Anything else you'd like to explore?
  13. Starting up this thread to discuss a thread revolving around a Bakery that Jaden manages as part of his day job and cover. All of his food is produced fresh and guaranteed to delight, or your money back. Chocolate pastries, cinnamon rolls, fruit-filled tarts, the list goes on. However, whom are the mysterious workers in his bakery? Where exactly does all his produce come from? Why is the kind-hearted baker hardly ever seen tasting his own treats? Is there more to this bakery than meets the eye? Alright, let's see who's interested and if you guys got any suggestions how to expand on this, the plot, or anything.
  14. Chosen By The Earth

    The men in black continued their march through the trees, scanning the area around them but for the moment they hadn't noticed anyone tailing them. However, just because they looked like any other group of hoodlums didn't mean they should be taken lightly. After all, any group willing to walk around with weapons in broad daylight were the kind of people just asking for attention, trouble, or some mix of the two. Suddenly, a voice echoed all around them, reverberating through the trees and the earth itself, though it was impossible to pinpoint the source or whether the voice was male or female, "Humans...you trespass on grounds that are under my protection. Whatever you came for, you will not find it here. I give you one chance to return to where you came from. Do so, and no harm will come to any of you. I will pretend as if you were not even here..." The men in black all looked at each other and despite the masks, their body language suggested at least a few were considering it. "Don't lose your nerve, boys," one of the masked men remarked as he stepped forward, his mask having a pair of horns painted on it along with wearing slightly beefier-looking body armor, indicating someone of rank, "Remember what we came here for. Now, let me do the talking..." He looked up at the trees, "So, I heard you're the "boogeyman" who's been all the rage on the news lately, huh? You know, you put quite a few of my men in the hospital..." For a couple seconds, the voice was quiet, before it suddenly answered, "Those men made the choice to terrorize innocent people and steal from hard-working citizens. They have no one to blame for what befell them except themselves." "Ah, another one of those folks whom loves playing "judge and jury" with their powers, huh?" The masked man snickered despite the slightly condescending tone, "Why you gotta be like that, man? I mean, the economy's tough. You do what you gotta do to get by...now why don't you give yourself up and let us turn you in for the bounty on your head? Trust me, it'll be easier on all of us..." As he was talking, he pulled out a syringe and started inspecting it from all sides.
