    Casting Call (OOC)

    Initiative for Archangel is 17+3=20.

    Casting Call

    Archangel looks unsure of what to do for a moment,then calls out, "Hold up. Is this a test of strength, or am I supposed to hit it like I would in a fight, using this? She holds up her hands, and everyone can see that she is now holding a heavy mace, apparently made of the same silvery material as her armor. If told to use the weapon, Archangel nods and smiles. She stands sideways before the rectangle and braces her feet, swinging the silver mace mightily into the target, putting as much effort into it as she can. If told not to, she drops the mace, which is gone before it hits the ground. She seems less comfortable without using the weapon, although her punch still isn't bad.

    Archangel willingly reports to the police, although she doesn't have much to say. When Velocity mentions the reporters and Raven leaves, Archangel says "Very well. I don't mind speaking, but I missed most of the action and don't really have anything to tell them. If you're done here, I think I am too." Archangel lifts slightly into the air, and then says with a laugh, "I'd like to say that I hope to see you again soon, but I don't think it's usually a good idea to wish for a situation where several superheroes have to meet up."

    "I'm pretty capable close-up and at range as well," says Archangel. "I can move up close to try and keep enemies off the two of you as well. I'm not sure how well some of my long-range abilities would work against machines anyway."

    Casting Call

    Archangel smiles. "I'm curious about the plans for the rest of the day, but I think I'll learn about that without asking anyway. So I don't think so, no."

    Casting Call

    Archangel plucks at her silvery armor and thinks for a moment. "I don't think I would be completely bulletproof, but bullets certainly won't work as well against me as they're meant to, or very well at all."

    Casting Call

    Archangel is a bit surprised to be called on to answer first, but she nods and begins. "Very well, sir. As some of you probably guessed from my wings, I can fly. I can also heal wounds with my touch. I don't need to eat, sleep, or breathe, and I don't age. I can understand different languages, and speak in them if need be. I am very resilient, physically, and good at both encouraging my allies and terrifying the wicked. If I need to fight, I can produce a holy weapon to fit the situation. I think that's about all." Archangel smiles before continuing. Thinking about which of the abilities that come so naturally qualify as unusual enough to mention was somewhat difficult. This next part was easier. "As to why I am here, that is partially simply because I want to meet more people and I am fascinated by people willing to put themselves at risk to defend those less capable of defending themselves. I also wish to know something of my potential allies, and let them know that they can depend on me if I am needed. Finally, I'd like a chance to put myself to the test--which I believe is also a part of what we're doing here today?" Archangel pauses for a moment to think, before nodding at Emissary. "I think that's everything. Is that sufficient?"

    Casting Call

    When Archangel enters the reception area, she looks around again. She's both nervous and excited to meet all of the superhumans here. Spotting two people, she's met before, she walks over to Velocity and Mystic Raven "Ah, hello again. Recognize me?" she asks. She'd warned them before she might look different, and the wings are probably a dead giveaway if they remember that. "You're helping run things today, Velocity?" She turns to Arrowhawk. "I'm sorry, I think I'm being rude. I'm Archangel," she says with a bow.
  9. Ah, sorry all. I thought I already posted. :oops:

    "I don't think it will take long enough to get him down for him to wake up and struggle," Archangel says as she moves over to the man. She gently lifts him to see how much he weighs, then carries him to the edge of the roof. "I think I'll be fine, but it never hurts to make sure. Thank you, Raven," she says before carrying him over the edge and to the ground below. (Assuming he's about average size, Archangel should be able to carry him. If he's particularly large, she might need Extra Effort, but the fatigue won't affect her much anyway away from any action.)

    Casting Call

    A figure with golden wings soared through the sky through Freedom toward the city center and Freedom Hall. Archangel wanted to arrive a bit early for the meeting with the Freedom League, but hopefully not before they were ready. Ah well, they were used to dealing with things they weren't ready for, weren't they? Archangel swooped down to land in front of the building. She appeared as a young woman with shoulder-length blonde hair, wearing a white robe and a shirt of silver mail. At her waist her robe was bound with a golden cord and she wore simple sandals on her feet. She opened the door and looked around nervously, trying to take everything in. After a moment, she approached the receptionist. "Hello. I am Archangel, and I was told I could come by for a... tryout, with the Freedom League? That is why you're closed today, correct?"

    "'Wizard' has negative meanings? I'm not sure I'm familiar with those." Archangel thinks a bit about Raven's question before answering. "No, I don't mind. Let's see... Where I'm from, we're more like spirits, different from how we appear in this world. When I agreed to come here, I agreed to take a mortal form--so I can die here--which is somewhat shaped by the expectations of the people around when I arrived. Which might explain the differing ideas. "I can fly and heal, as I said. I'm mortal, but I don't have to eat or sleep, and my form is a bit mutable--I may not look quite the same next time we meet. I can also speak different languages, if I need to. The armor represents that I am far more resilient to damage than humans, and I would have a holy weapon in hand if I needed it. Not that my instrument is useless, either. "I can't tell you much more than that about angels though. I'm mortal here, and things that mortals aren't supposed to know for sure--if I knew them before, I had to give up that knowledge as part of the package." Archangel moves closer to the super-criminal and sizes him up. "Velocity, you said that they had to climb up here and then bring him down. Would it help if I carried him down? I'm definitely not as strong as some of your acquaintances, but I am stronger than most humans. I think I can do it."

    "Hello then, Raven and Velocity." Archangel says with a small bow. "I would actually think you might like a chance to slow down. They shouldn't take that long to respond anyway, should they?" Archangel then turns to Raven. ""Personally, I'm interested in all the super-humans in this area. You said you are a mage?"

    Secret Identities

    I s'pose I should post here at some point. I'm 21, but I'll be 22 as soon as this Halloween. I look forward to this because I know saying "21" tends to make people (at least in the US) think of "drinking age" and I don't drink at all. Recent college grad, avoiding school for a while but probably going to grad school relatively soon, at least part time. I was an English major, and I'm hoping to make a career out of writing. Sometimes I absolutely deplore some of the vague attempts at communication one sees on the internet. Still a 'net junkie, though. I got interested in RPGs with DnD 3.5E and eventually D20 Modern before I left high school, although I never played them before I went to college. It was a small university, but I was still shocked by the lack of RPG players I saw there. Seriously, there was a comic book shop several blocks away from both my university and the high school that didn't normally carry RPG books. The owner was perfectly willing to order them for me, but I was apparently one of the only people who ever bought them so it wasn't worth it for him to carry them. And it's not like there were other stores selling them to students either. I actually had a roommate once who played Magic: The Gathering, but I couldn't get him into RPGs. So I have stacks of books because I still enjoy reading them, but my experience actually using them is somewhat slim. I actually got into MnM (and Star Wars Saga) trying to get my (recently ex- :| ) boyfriend interested in RPGs, since he was a big superhero comic (and Star Wars) fan. It didn't actually work, but it got me into more games at least.

    "Partially for lack of a better name, I've been calling myself Archangel. I've only been in Freedom a short time myself, but as far as I know I'm the only angel. I don't think I'd be surprised if I learned I was wrong, and I doubt I'm the only one who looks the part." She steps a bit closer to the defeated man and looks him over. "I hate to leave anyone hurt, but if I heal him here he'll probably wake up and either try to flee or attack us, and just need to be taken down again. "I don't mean to cut off our conversation, but perhaps we should deal with him first?" she asks, looking toward Velocity, who has some authority after all.
