GM Elysium Academy, Emerald City May 16th, 2019 11:30 PM Elysium Academy was as silent as one would expect during the night. The students, for the most part, knew better than to cause trouble, less they risk a punishment. And a pair of students were sneaking through the night, each independent of the other. They had both overheard Mr. Stark with Doctor Trine during lunch. Something about some important correspondence from "you-know-who". Very vague, sure, but also a potential clue. One that could lead to freeing students... or perhaps to the conspiracy behind the academy and the city itself? Neither knew the identity of the other. Neither of the two even knew that there were other rebels among Elysium Academy, but it seemed that on this night, Omen and the Bronze Hornet were about to learn.
Omen/Screech Power Level: 10 (150/151PP) Unspent Power Points: 1 Trade-Offs: None In Brief: Psychic Shadow academy student with Rebellion on the brain. Catchphrase: "They call me Omen, Because when you see me, things are about to go badly for you." Theme: Alternate Identity: Morton "Mort" Oleander (Secret) Birthplace: Manchester, UK Residence: Emerald City; Shadow Academy Dorm Base of Operations: Emerald City Affiliations: Rebellion, Other Rebellious Students at the academy Family: None Description: Age: 18 (DoB: 2000) Gender: CIS Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 6'3" Weight: 150lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Black Tall and slender young man, clean shaven with short well kept hair, there is nothing that makes mort stand out of the ordinary a fact he uses to his advantage, prefering to wear featureless black clothes. History: Adopted to serve as an unwitting decoy for the son of a family of petty gangsters it was on the night it seemed he was about to die for that very purpose that his powers manifested and after overwhelming his attackers and adoptive family both with telepathic assault fled into the night. Living amongst the homeless population and using his powers to take what he needed from people who wouldn't miss it it would be over a year before he was approached by the shadow academy and under coceration of the well-being of his new found friends and family he accepted Coecered but unbowed he set his mind to probing the intricacies of the strict heirarchy into which he had been thrust for information, though he found little in the ways of weaknesses and secrets, many of the faculty and senior students being practised veterans of the long war with super heroes he did begin to find hints of disorganized rebellion and revolt fermenting in the minds of the newer "students" at the academy. Partitioning his conciousness proved to be a nessicary precaution, he was not the only psychic student and he was far from the honed gifts of the faculty for all his natural talent, suspecting that even with his carefully cultivated reputation he was not above the scrutiny nor paranoia of others he opted to partition away a small part of his conciousness to keep the names and faces of those students whom he had seen the sparks of resistance in from mind scans. It was a regettable but nessicary conclusion that if the rebellion was to succeed it needed not only nurturing and protecting but pruning to keep it from premature discovery and destruction. Thus he became known as "Omen" amongst those students, his interest and presence being a bad sign for those planning escape or revolt. Whilst his alter ego became called "screech" named after the stylised mask he wore when directly intervining on behalf of those same students To this day he maintains a delicate balancing act of fear, respect, hatred and trust and paranoia between his rebellious peers, his overseers, fellow psychic inquisitors and the faculty of the shadow academy. Personality & Motivation: Morton carries himself with a fearsome mein when dealing with members of the shadow academy, relying on his terrifying reputation and position as one of the so called "Inquisitors' to dissuade other students from scrutinizing his actions and movements too closely. He is guided by his sense of empathy to help those in need without endangering them or others as he manuvers things into place for a perfect storm. Powers & Tactics: what the enemy doesn't know can certainly hurt them as much if not more than spontaneous combustion or telekinetically hurled tonnage Morton has learned that it is in his best interest to control the terms and location of engagement and will focus on wresting control if he doesn't already possess it. Secrecy is of paramount importance as well, his plans depend on him being in the good graces of the academy staff whilst he assists the rebellion with telepathic spendings and illusory messengers. He will take great pains to act quickly, quietly and reveal as little as possible about himself. Power Descriptions: Mortons psionics are for the most part visually undetectable save for his nascent pyrokinesis which burns in all the colours and intensity of regular fire and the ripples of transparent force that come with psychokinetic energy blasts. Complications: No-one can know: Mortons assistance of rebellious students cannot be brought to light lest his homeless friends are made to pay the price and the rebellion is quashed by the academy staff, this is his primary concern and there are very few lengths he is unwilling to go to to keep his secrets. Masks and Masquerades: due to the presence of other powerful psychics amongst the Inquisitors and faculty staff Morton has partioned his conciousness and sometimes partially erases information with programmed recalls, though he has stopped short of creating an entirely separate personality he is unable to access certain information when he is and is not wearing his mask and in his screech persona.
