    Tarantula.

    Introduction Give a two or three word description of yourself. (Describe your character's concept.) Carefree, selfless and mature (though she acts like she's not). If a fourth word is allowed: Naive. Do you have any nicknames, street names, titles, or nom de plume? Yuki. As Tarantula, most of the names criminal's give her are NSFW. What is your full birth name? Unknown (Yukio Mishka is her only name, and it was given to her by her adopted mother. Where do you live? Yuki lives in Southside. Why do you live there? Her mother (her only source of sustenance) lives there. What do you perceive as your greatest strength? Selflessness and inner bravery. Yuki strives to defend those who can't defend themselves. What do you perceive as your greatest weakness? Self doubt. Often holds back true potential due to fear of becoming a living weapon. Physical Traits How old are you? (Chronological age as well as age category.) 16 (becomes 17 in January) What is your sex? Female What is your race? Asian, though she is mixed with an unknown ethnicity (most likely Caucasion) How tall are you? 5'5" How much do you weigh? 175 lbs What is your general body type, frame, bone structure, and poise? Well... I'm a kid. A teen, actually. My body is still developing and my mother is afraid that my costume is 'too' formfitting, if you know what I mean. >>; Ahem. What that means is my body is developed above average and the costume shows it off. I still look like a teen, though. Nothing freakish. What is your skin colour? What is your hair colour? Reddish Auburn What is your hair style? Sometimes pony-tail, sometimes free flowing. Do you have any facial hair? ...I'm going to pretend you didn't ask that. What is your eye colour? Brown. How attractive are you? Attractive enough not to make myself gag while looking in the mirror. Not good for anything else What is your most distinguishing feature? I Crawl walls and you're looking for a distinguishing feature? What you want me to jump through flaming hoops too!? Oh! Well... people like my eyes. I guess. Do you have any scars, tattoos, or birthmarks? I have a '9' tatooed on my lower back. I use makeup to cover it. What is your handedness (left/right/ambidextrous)? left. Do you resemble some currently known person? There's this person I know... her name is Yukio Mishka. Nice kid. You should meet her. What kind of clothing do you wear? I try to wear clothes that I can comfortably wear my costume under. I never wear skirts. Never. The reason why should be obvious. I don't really have a fashion sense to speak of. Do you wear makeup? No. Smear to easy behind my mask. What sort of vocal tone do you have? History Where is your homeland? America. Are you aware of its history? I suck at history, but I try. Tough to do history papers when you're dodging bullets... Are you patriotic or a social outcast? I'm no Captain America... but I'm not an emo kid from Twilight either... guess I'm in the middle of the road. What are your opinion of home? Wonderful view! I can count the the bricks of the wall next door! Where is your home town? Alberqueqy New Mexico. WHERE DO YOU THINK, GENIUS!? Are your real reasons for becoming an adventurer different from what you tell others? Complicated. I do want to help people... but I want to do it to prove that I can help people, not hurt them. I kind of withhold that information. Yeah. How far would you go to keep such secrets from being revealed? What would you do if the truth became known? I pull off death defying stunts just to prove them wrong. What do you fear would occur if the truth became known? People have a habit of... digging into other's business and I would rather keep some skeletons buried. Do you have any particularly high or low ability scores? I'm Agile... but not very knowledgeable. My mom says I take too many risks without thinking and that If I don't start using my head, I'll lose it. Like someone is fast enough to do that. How have these scores affected your life so far? I answered that already. What about your race, growing up were you in the majority or a minority? I've had my problems. Where I live, things are a bit mixed. Poverty knows no race or skin color. Did this impact your outlook in any way? Seeing how people struggle, it emboldened me to share what I have. If I can help people, I shouldn't hold back. How do you feel about other races? Truth be told, I'm not to racist. Sure there are some things that blacks do that urk me, but I don't judge. I'm quite sure there are some things I do that piss people off. Were there any traumatic experiences in your early years (death of a family member, abandonment, orphaned at an early age)? I escaped from a secret lab where I was probed with needles, forced to drink foul liquid and slept in a room smaller then a broom closet. Nope not traumatic at all. Briefly describe a defining moment in your childhood and how it influenced your life. My escape from the labs. What stupid things did you do when you were younger? I once got locked out and wall crawled up the side of the apartment and through the side window. Many saw me and my mom was forced to move. Luckily, I was very young. Which toys from your childhood have you kept? Why? What do they mean to you? If you didn't keep any, why not? What did you do to them all? Do you have any deep, dark secrets in the past that may come back to haunt you? Uhm... secret experiment. Are you who you claim to be? No. But I only known myself to either be Project 9 and Yukio Mishka. I prefer Yukio. Do you have any sort of criminal record? Truthfully... I don't even have a REAL record... How do you view the heroes/legends of your country? If I'm lucky, I'll be half as legendary as them! Family Who were your parents? Well, Sarah Creed is my adopted mother. My real parents... I have no idea. Were you raised by them? If not, then why didn't they and who did raise you? Nope, wasn't raised by them. Theyt could be dead for all I know. What was their standing in the community? Did your family stay in one area or move around a lot? How did you get along with their parents? How would your parents describe you? Answer this in the voice of your mother, then in your father's. Sarah Creed: Yukio, for someone with the past she had, is a courageous individual. I support her decision to be a hero fully, though I wish she be more careful. Do you have any siblings? If so how many and what were their names? How did you get along with each of your siblings? No. None that I know of. What was your birth position in the family? Only one. List all current knowledge of family locations, spouses, children, birth dates, schooling, and any important incidents that only you and they might remember. Do you stay in touch with them or have you become estranged? Do you love or hate one member of the family in particular? My mom is the only support I have. Without her, I'm lost. Is any member of the family special to you in any way (perhaps, as a confidant, mentor, or arch-rival)? *points up* Are there any black (or white) sheep in the family (including you)? If so, who are they and how did they "gain" the position? Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor? If so, what did this person do to become famous or infamous? Do you try to live up to the reputation of your ancestor, try to live it down, or ignore it? Do you ever want to have a family of your own someday? Would anything change your mind on this issue and if so, what? What type of person would be your ideal mate? Relationships Do you have any close friends? If so, who and what are they like? ...friends. Yeah, lots of friends... LOOK, a three headed monkey! *runs* What is the history of their relationship(s) with you? Do you currently have a best friend whom you would protect with your reputation or your life? If so, who are they and what caused you to feel so close to them? What would have to happen for you to end this relationship? Do you have any bitter enemies? Oh I have a list as long as my arm. The top ones are Rant & Rave. My career is still early, though. If so, who are they, what are they like, and what is the history of their feud with you? Have you defeated them before? Yep. How might these enemies seek to discomfit you in the future? Rant and Rave were pissed at me and Angel. They might want a re-match. Which person(s) or group(s) are you most loyal to? Who is your most trusted ally? My mom. ...what? Who do you trust, in general? My mom. ...stop looking at me like that! Who do you despise and why? Name seven things you hate in others. Ruthlessness, irresponsibility, cruelty, Is your image consistent? Do you deliberately present yourself differently in different situations, and how? Yeah. I try to be shyer then usual as Yukio. If I was a wisecracker as Tarantula... yeah. What would you die for? To save others. What is the worst thing someone has done to you? I was a lab rat. Don't want to talk about it. What is your general reaction to an attractive member of the opposite sex who lets you know they are available? Complete and utter shock, followed by awkward silence which will probably end in a hilarious (at least to onlookers) accident. How do you get along with others of the same adventuring class? Some are annoyed... but few things are complained about when bullets, plasma beams, etc, that would've been shot at them, is shot at me instead. Have you lost any loves? Nope, and hopefully never will. How did you handle the situation (short & long term)? Who would miss you should you go missing? My mother and a few other heores. I think... How close are you to your adventuring companions? What do they not know about you? While some think I'm VERY young, I still think they'll be quite shocked that I am 16 going on 17. Some expected me to be younger, others expected me t be slightly older. Are you a member of any house, guild, organization, or church? What is your level of involvement? Personality & Beliefs Do you, or did you, have any role models? No Do you have any heroes or idols, either contemporary or from legend? Spider-man. Can't you tell!? Did you ever become disillusioned with former heroes or idols? If so, why and what were the circumstances? When did you decide to become an adventurer? When I first learned just how 'real' super heroes were. It took all my strength not to run out there without a mask. Why have you chosen to risk your life as a career? Ohg nonononono! My mom said people with careers get 'paid'. This is a hobby. And I choosen this hobby, cause i gives me a purpose. I was made to be a weapon, but screw that! I'm helping people. What do you expect to get out of being an adventurer? What, if anything, would make you stop adventuring? If I'm doing more damage thn good. Do you have any dreams or ambitions? If not, why? I'm still young I guess. Haven't really thought about college or the like. What are your short term goals (what would you like to be doing within a year)? Try and not flunk Highschool... What are your long term goals (what would you like to be doing twenty years from now)? If these goals seem at odds with each other, or with your dreams, how do you reconcile the differences? Do you have any great rational or irrational fears or phobias? If so, what are the origins of, or reasons behind them? I hate enclosed spaces, I hate needles, I hate being submerged for a good length of time... all originating from being a labrat... they bring back memories. How do you react when this fear manifests itself? I just... shutdown... you know... next question, please... What are your attitudes regarding material wealth? I need it. My mother needs it. We have to eat, you know. Are you miserly with your share of the wealth, or do you spend it freely? I have to be Miserly. It's not like money is growing out of my ears. Do you see wealth as a mark of success, or just as a means to an end? Means to the end. A very bitter end if we run out. How do you generally treat others? I try to stay up beat and cheerful. I joke around a lot either to annoy my enemies or to hide my emotions from my friends. In general, I try to stay optimistic. Do you trust easily (perhaps too easily) or not? Without trust, we're aninmals. How can friends be made if you don't trust? Are you introverted (shy and withdrawn) or extroverted (outgoing)? Behind the mask, I'm outgoing... otherwise, I stay t myself. Are you a humble soul or blusteringly proud? Oh gods, I'm humble. All the times I had to put my foot in my mouth? I'd hang myself if I was prideful. What habits do you find most annoying in friends? Prejudice and arrogance. Cant stand them. What are your most annoying habits? I'm a bit naive.

What would you do if someone else attempted to (or successfully did) kill under your "wrong" circumstances, what would be your reaction? I try to stop them. If they did it, I'd turn them in. What if it were your enemy? Ditto. What if it were your friend? I would hope it doesn't come to it... but Ditto as well.

If so, how far are you willing to go to defend the government? If not, do you actively oppose it? *shrug* What form of government do you believe is the best (democracy, monarchy, anarchy, aristocratic rule, oligarchy, matriarchy) and why? Democracy.

    Tarantula.

    Tarantula's thread.
  4. Yuki canted her head. "You'd think the spider motif and the emblem on my chest and stomach was a dead give away..." She extended a hand. "...the name's Tarantula, and at this rate I'd be lucky to spend half a yeah in college." Literally AND metaphorically speakin, of course. "...so Vick, what's needs to be done?" Later on, it'll hit Yuki that this guy OWNS this building, but for now, she has other things to worry about.
  5. Yuki listened to the two men, one saying that he was able to make things, the other waving for one of them (shje assumed he meant the guy who spoke) to come over. All the same she leapt over to the console, shooting a webline to hang upside down from as she looked down on the man. "What are those things? That's the million dollar question, mister...?"
  6. Yuki didn't jump, cause she 'knew' the demon wasn't going to break through. All the same she nodded. "...yeah, they're not indestructable. I guess the trick is cutting them off at the source..." She scratched her scalp, which was sweated out thanks to her exertions. "Anyluck in finding where these things came from?"
  7. The look of uncetainty was covered by her full faced mask. The only thing Razor could percieve was a slight cant of her head to the left. "I'd rather dodge the punches if you don't mind." A joke. What else could she say? That she was terrified? That she really didn't know if there really was hope? The one thing she kept to herself throughout the entire day was that her dangersense has been buzzing non-stop. Sure, it was a low intensity now, which meant that danger wasn't immediate... But danger was still around. This was only a tempoary safe haven. "I just wish things was as simple as that battle on Century Bridge. Destroy the control center and everything else sputtered out. Now... it just seems that every victory causes greater despair. Dozens of people in that mansion are crying their eyes out cause their son, or husband, or daughter is still out there. I rescue one... only to hear that three more needs..." Emo alert. Emo Alert. "Gah! Sorry... I don't mean to sound like a whiny teenager..."
  8. Yuki dropped from the webline to the ground. "Sure, why not?" Yuki walked with him. For some reason, she choose to answer his question anyway. "To much happened... I know we lost some civilians who couldn't make it into the building in time..." Yuki shook her head as she remembered the bodies on the ground. "I just don't get it... most evil has a purpose. Money. Power. Insanity even... but all these demons do i pervert, destory and kill. No purpose..." She crossed her arms. "Why?" She knew he didn't have the answer. Who did?
  9. :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: Laserbeam!!! :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: Yuki managed to leaps out of the way of a laserbeam that managed to clip the back of her thigh. Hurray for a sore hammy later today! She back flipped into a handstand, glimpsing the shooter. She blinked. "It had to happen sooner or later... I'm speechless. Really, I am... Hell must be freezing over..." She kicked out of the handstand... slamming both feet into the female's jaw. Yuki watched as the woman flew to the other side of the bridge... "...going...going...rats, missed by inches..." She shot a webline to end her follow through leap short, landing a few feet away from the person she saved as he stumbled around. "Okay, I believe I was in the middle of a pun before I was rudely interupted? Oh yeah! So how is Gotham City? Is it true that it's always nighttime over there?"
  10. Yuki's attack on Ako... (1d20+13=30) Hit! Ako's Toughness... Toughness DC 24 (1d20+8=18) Stun and Knockback... Knockback: 25 feet and prone on the ground... dangling on the edge of the bridge! Breakdown... go!
  11. GM POST Doc Otaku (on virtue of seize init) With his Angels keeping the Heroes at bay, Otaku began his next phase. Soon the Bugbots will have gathered enough raw material to complete their programming. It was genius, pure genius! Soon... soon phase two! He began the preparations, pulling levers and pushing seemingly random buttons.
  12. He had to remind her. Her homework, book bag and school supplies are probably being ravaged by some demon spawn as they speak. Razor didn't need to know 'that'. "You know the Archtech building in Hanover? It was turned into some sort of pyramid out of a cartoon..." She paused as she thought on the memories. "Dozens of civies and just us five. Me, the doc, some guy who build things... then there was this guy who breathed fire... " She shook her head. "If it wasn't for Archville, we'd be dead many times over. All I did was distract those things at best. They have no sense of humour."
  13. Yuki chuckled. God, it felt good. "Didn't you hear? Insanity is a prerequisite of being a hero!" She was still staring at the shield. "...seriously, I'm worried. Even if we win, how will this city be the same? I mean, it took two years to rebuild after the Terminus invasion... and now this. Doesn't the Freedom league have an... anti demon invasion thingie?"
  14. "Well, I've been in worse warzones. Then I woke up." She also looked at the shield. "Hey look at it this way. If screw ups like us made it, then the heavy hitters should be okay, right?"
  15. Yuki wathed as DS flew away. There was still a long fight ahead. Se can't rest. She slowly sat up. "I'm going on patrol. Anybody want to lay here, be my guess. Last I checked, I was cootie free!" With that, she bouced off the web hammock and web slung around the house. Eventually she snuckup on Razor (by dropping from a tree in his patrol route and hanging upside down from a webline. "Penny for your thoughts?"
