Main Quad, Claremont Academy Bayview, Freedom City, New Jeresy Monday, Febraury 18, 2019; 8:35 AM The morning sun had done little to warm the cold morning air thus far as it began to shine over the open air courtyard located at the front entrance of Claremont Academy. Veronica Danger stood toward the front entrance, not far from the grass circle in the center where stood a statute of Dr. Charles Claremont. The teenage Danger was dressed in dark green cargo pants, a pair of well-worn hiking boots and a long sleeved brown shirt with a winter jacket over it. The rest of the quad was deserted as the school was closed today. Veronica was out waiting to meet a new student that was arriving this morning so she could provide him a tour and help get him settled in.
Power Level: 7 (105/108PP) Unspent Power Points: 3 Trade-Offs: None In Brief: Teen with Demonic blood in their veins, trying to escape their fate Catchphrase: "Look, I'm not a bad person..." Theme: Matthew Sweet, Dark Secret Alternate Identity: Tyler Black (Secret) Birthplace: Evanston, WY Residence: The Claremont Academy Base of Operations: The Claremont Academy Occupation: Student Affiliations: Other Claremont Students Family: Unknown - the people who raised him were in service to the entity whose lineage he is part of. Description: Age: 16 (DoB: 2002) Apparent Age: N/A Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5' 9" Weight: 175 Eyes: Brown Hair: Black Tyler seems at first glance to be your average American teen. He dresses in comfortable clothing that's vaguely stylish (if not exactly on the cutting edge of fashion) and seems a little awkward around others at times. One notable point is that he often wears some sort of hat, usually a baseball cap; they disguise a budding pair of obsidian horns that erupt from his temples, just up near his hairline. History: Tyler was raised on a small commune in Evanston, Wyoming. Practically on the doorstep of the Mormons, the Brothers and Sisters of the Radiant Benevolence rejected the Christian sentiment of the area. Tyler didn't know who his parents were despite asking on several occasions, though he didn't lack for caregivers. He also didn't know what went on when the adults met every Thursday evening. Instead he learned to be content with homeschooling, the curriculum focusing as much on theology as practical subjects, though his lessons in the former often leaned towards harsh criticism or dismantling of other religion's beliefs. Tyler hit puberty, and along with the usual host of adolescent problems came first the whispers, and then the horns. When the adults found out (and despite him desperately trying to file his horns down a few times, they became impossible to hide for long) they rejoiced; finally, after years of devotion their dark prayers had been answered. Followers of a being they referred to mainly as The Prince of Sanguine Terror, the various families traced their lineages back to the original acolytes who had accepted His blessed touch; now, Tyler would be the greatest among his servants, paving the way for his return. Despite his education, Tyler wasn't wholly keen on that idea, but the elders of the Cult did help him to hone some of the powers his connection to his Dark patron granted him. He was woken late one night by Layla, one of the several women he thought of as a mother figure; she explained in hushed tones that the cult's true purpose was to foster the darkness within Tyler's blood before using him as a sacrifice to allow the Prince full entry into their world. Her faith had been shaken as she watched Tyler's powers emerge; now, fully aware of the plan she realised she couldn't bear to see him killed. She'd packed him a bag and, despite his confusion, put him on a bus to Freedom City, along with a letter for the teachers at the Claremont Academy. A week after arriving at Claremont, Tyler read in the paper that Layla had died, the tragic result of a wild animal attack. Personality & Motivation: Despite his corrupted lineage, Tyler doesn't want to be bad. He knows that what truly matters is one's deeds, how one uses the talents that they have; despite that, every time he draws from the dark wellspring of his power he feels the potential to release a little more corruption into the world. Powers & Tactics: Tyler's demonic taint allows him to manipulate magical energy; while he's only mastered a few spells so far, it allows him to be versatile in the field. He can teleport short distances, manipulate objects remotely via psychokinesis, cause objects to spontaneously combust and dominate a single person's will. Power Descriptions: All of his powers have an aura of demonic energy - his teleports leave behind the smell of brimstone, his psychokinesis surrounds objects with dancing shadows. Objects that he sets alight sometimes appear to have horrified faces in the flames, and those who have their will controlled have eyes that go completely black; when working powerful magic Tyler also sometimes has completely black eyes, his skin appearing a chalky white. His protective force field manifests as a shimmering haze, though one that shines with a blood-red light. Complications: It's the horns, right?: Sure, Claremont has its share of weird-looking students. Still, people see a guy with horns on his head, you don't need to be a Bible Scholar to make the connection to demons. Tyler often finds strangers wary of him. (Prejudice: Demonic Appearance) Daddy Issues: Tyler's been told what The Prince's plans are, both for him and for the world. He's not much of a threat to those plans right now, but with the right training and allies, he might be. (Motivation: Responsibility) Claiming Asylum: It would definitely be bad if his old 'family' were aware that he was now at Claremont Academy. They'd like him back quite urgently.
