  1. (Wanted to switch up a few aspects of Warp's layout ever since I came back, but didn't have the PP to spend on it. Now I do! This sheet is meant to represent changes to Warp that happen in-universe after her powers further awaken. Original sheet here. Let me know if I've fouled anything up.) Player Name: Curious Key Character Name: Warp Power Level: 10/12 (190/193) Trade-Offs: +4 Defense / -4 Toughness, +3 Attack / -3 DC Unspent Power Points: 8 In Brief: A teleporting T-baby trying to prove she has what it takes to be a hero. Alternate Identity: Katharine Lilly Shade Identity: Secret Birthplace: Normal, Illinois Occupation: Student Affiliations: Claremont (Alumni), FCU Family: Rose Shade (Mother), Alexander Shade (Father), Lyle Shade (Brother) Age: 20 (DoB: 1997, 3rd of August) Gender: Female Height: 5'4" Weight: 135lb Eyes: Glowing Red Hair: Red Kat's face is rounded and heart-shaped, with a pointed nose and eyes a little too wide for her face. Her rust-red hair falls to her neck at its greatest length. Kat has thin shoulders and a slight, whipcord build, maintained with deliberate effort and supernatural potency. Her eyes, lacking pupils or irises, are instead entirely red with flecks of black that dart across it,. Kat's complexion is fair and lightly freckled, interrupted by a spiderweb of lines pulsing with darkness and red light. They cross her skin like cracks in glass. While the lines are spread unevenly across much of her body the markings center around Kat's hands and over her heart, which glow like coals. Kat's HoloBand is a sleek silver wristband that can pop open to reveal several knobs and dials. By manipulating these dials Kat can trigger its routines, concealing the evidence of Terminus mutations beneath a hologram for as long as it is active. Her pure-red eyes become tinted gray. The markings on her skin erased. Just a normal, human, girl. During day-to-day activities, Kat wears a wide variety of clothes, but tends to lean more in toward comfortable sameness, sticking with leggings, boots, shirts and a vest, perhaps shorts instead during warmer months. She favors browns and reds. As Warp, Kat's color scheme is primarily red and black, and while she wears it well and keeps a consistent uniform, the clothes she wears are made of plain, ordinary fabric you could cobble together by going to everyday stores. She wears an open red hooded vest with a white, wavy spiral on the back. Beneath that a snug black, short-sleeved shirt. She finishes the look with black tights and a pair of red boots. Power Descriptions: While the increasing t-count of Warp's body has sparked a number of physical mutations which has instilled a certain sturdiness of character in Warp, the true focus of her power remains her ability to erode space. She corrodes reality, capable of tearing holes in the universe that she can use to travel quickly from place to place. She can also turn her powers against more immediate aspects of reality, erasing aspects the world around her, sometimes even drawing its strength into herself in the process. History: Katharine Lilly Shade was born in a hospital, in small-ish Normal Illinois. There was a spike of Terminus radiation that no one noticed, before her birth Subtly but definitively changed, she lived her life in Normal without understanding what she was, until the day before she was set to take a staring role in a play she woke up in a dumpster in Chicago. Things started happening fast, then. As soon as she got home her family met face-to-face with scouts from a Claremont Academy in Freedom City, offering her a place free of charge to learn to control her talents. And maybe even use them for good. No other such institution existed, and even if they did they certainly weren't offering to teach her for free. So off she went. Under the tutelage of experienced Claremont heroes Kat learned to put her powers through their paces and use them as she saw fit rather than the other way around. Inspired by the other would-be heroes of Claremont, Kat took up her own 'cape' and adopted the mantle of Warp and engaged in combat against freedom's most vile alongside Freedom's youngest. While she faced many things, the Day of Wrath was one of the most terrible. It set her off kilter, and no one else knew anything was going wrong until her powers started rebelling against her in the middle of the street. It was politely suggested that Warp retire from heroism for a while, at least long enough to go to therapy and get her powers back under control again. And she did get it under control, mostly, but never to the same degree she had before the Day of Wrath. Nevertheless, she stayed retired. On graduating from Claremont, Warp returned home for a year, where she tried to recover surrounded by family that didn't understand and didn't know how to start. She took an offer to start in FCU with Claremont's blessing, on some path to a normal life. But even then, she wasn't sure what she wanted to be. Desperate to feel less lost, Kat couldn't help but look up at the heroes in the sky above her. They were important. Everyone knew that. Luckily, she'd kept the costume. Warp returned. But as Kat first got her footing again she discovered her mutation was progressing quickly and, as she could see from the lines of entropic power crisscrossing over her skin, very distinctly. Desperate, she turned to AEON in hopes of finding support . . . Personality & Motivation: Dubious, weary cynicism. The flare and enthusiasm that Kat wore so openly on her sleeve when she came to Freedom City and joined Claremont has been . . . Not stamped out, but tempered. The events of the day of wrath . . . affected her. The fire and death were a great blow to her psyche and her powers failing toppled what confidence she had aside. Recovering has been a slow process of picking up the pieces again, and it's possible it will never really be done. But . . . In the end, she has not changed so much. The younger Kat hid her insecurities behind a deliberate veil of optimism and energy. Today, Kat's countenance hides her optimism. In an way, Kat feels that she let herself down. Let Freedom down. Let the world down. Part of her insists that she was always a kid playing at heroism in a suit that didn't fit. That it was Not For Her. Nonetheless . . . Kat wants to believe she can. Wants to try. Powers & Tactics: Warp is primarily a melee fighter. She uses her teleport to move swiftly about any battlefield she finds herself, engaging immediately with whoever is least prepared for her. Through a combination of amateur training, teleporting and entropic strikes Warp can bob and weave with the best of them. When possible, Warp augments her strikes by enveloping her body in an entropic shroud, causing anything her fists touch or that tries to hit her back to grow brittle and easily broken. All the same, Warp is not defenseless at range. She can focus her energy into a violent bolt of reality-eroding red-black power. Quick and tricky, Warp uses misdirection and bluster to set her opponent's off balance, baiting her opponents into poor choices. She revels in setting people off their game and engaging in ways they aren't comfortable, even if it means varying her approach a bit. Complications: Wayward Student — Kat is a student that doesn't know what to do with her life and is feeling increasing anxiety over her inability to find a function in the real world as something other than a costumed crime fighter. She's lost and desperate. A savvy person might be able to take advantage of that desperation to catch her in something she'd normally be savvy enough to anticipate. I Need This Gig — Lilly works as an intern in ASTRO in Emerald City, at the forefront for the development of many new avenues of super-science here and abroad, meaning that Warp is very likely to be not only nearby but on-site when something goes wrong. What's more, they are aware of her heroic identity and not at all afraid to send her off on errands. It's All Too Much — As her powers have advanced and entropy bled into her body and soul Warp's ability to deal with chaos and surprises have suffered greatly. Exposure to chaotic lights, sounds and crowds are deeply overstimulating experiences for her now, reducing her to awkward fidgets and stammering which can deeply inhibit her ability to communicate clearly or can cause her to lose her grasp on what she hears or sees as she loses the ability to pick important details out of the static. Reality Unweaving — When Warp teleports, she annihilates the difference between one place and another, violently forcing the two spaces to become one by corroding our world's universal laws. Reality usually mends quickly, but every time Warp uses her powers she wounds the fabric of reality itself, and it can sometimes behave erratically in spaces where reality is either damaged or abnormally strong. In addition, it's possible that some in this universe could take offense or that forces from outside this universe might exploit these rips in space as a foothold into this world. Psychosomatic Powers — The way Kat's powers work revolve around strict control of her own negative feelings. When that is compromised, so is her control, causing her powers to malfunction—hitting the wrong target, or sometimes taking on a completely new and unpleasant effect—or fizzle out completely. The GM can decree that her powers may malfunction or cease to function while Warp is distressed. Tempermental Tunnels — For interdimensional travel, Warp relies on a transient phenomena known as Terminus tunnels, brief connects between dimensions through the Terminus. While she can guide them, Warp cannot truly control them. While they usually take her where she wants to go, they can often redirect her to entire other dimensions entirely or simply refuse to answer Warp's call. Caught Red-Handed — While Warp's mutant physiology is useful it poses one tiny problem. It's obvious, sinister looking and very permanent. In her heroic persona it draws prejudice in spades and makes her an easy target for the media. In her civilian persona, it makes keeping her secret identity more important than ever and makes maintaining it that much harder. In Sheep's Clothing — . . . Which leads into her reliance on a prototype HoloBand to present a 'normal' version of herself to the world at large. It's high-quality, cutting-edge, easy to use tech. It also not infallible. Random system failures can cause her HoloBand to give a soft warning alarm, overload and shutdown. It takes some time to recalibrate before becoming usable again.

  2. Player Name: Raveled Character Name: TNTeen Power Level: 7/8 (112/117PP) Trade-Offs: +1 Tou/-1 Def Unspent Power Points: 5 Progress To Platinum Status: 17/120 In Brief: A boy who only wants to be overlooked gets a most spectacular power. Alternate Identities: Eugene King, Gene Identity: Secret Birthplace: Freedom City, New Jersey Occupation: Student, superhero Affiliations: Claremont Academy Family: Adam (father), Renee (mother), Malcolm & Derek (brothers), Launa & Candice & Cassandra & Karine (sisters). Description: Age: 16 (DoB: October 1998) Gender: Male Ethnicity: African Height: 5' 5" Weight: 130 lbs Eyes: Black Hair: Black Gene King is not a physically imposing teenager. In fact he's short and slim, with elbows and knees everywhere. His hair is dark and curly, his face is long and thin, and his dark eyes are usually in a book. Most of the time he wears jeans and tee-shirts, like almost every other teenager, but when there's danger likely he dons a red shirt with a cartoon bomb on the front, and a red head-mask. Power Descriptions: Gene can absorb kinetic energy from his environment and release it as explosive spheres. With a little concentration he can even choose how long it will take for the spheres to detonate, potentially setting up a very nasty surprise! He can also focus the energy into a powerful, ground-eating leap, or bleed enough kinetic energy off an attack to completely nullify it. History: Eugene King was born to a big family in Ashton, the baby of seven. Being the youngest he was used to making his own fun, and quickly learned to enjoy quieter pastimes. Very soon grew into a quiet, bookish child. He excelled in academics at school and devoured all sorts of books; he especially loved comic books about Freedom City's local heroes. They inspired him in his life, even though he preferred to be much more low-key than the four-colored titans he read about. He may have gone through life in a placid way if not for the accident. It was a foggy day, and everyone was packed into family van as they drove home from the holidays. The highway was crowded with cars, and as a band of thicker mist rolled across the road drivers in front of the pack slowed down, too quickly for those in the rear to react. Cars collided and slid into one another, and very soon there was a developing pile-up. The Kings, ironically enough, avoided the mass of the accident only to slide down the side of the road and hit a tree. Gene was absorbed in a book for most of the time, and his only clear memories are of the car sliding across the road, his father swearing, and his mother screaming before the van came to an abrupt halt. Moments later the tree fell on the car, neatly pinning the family. No one was seriously hurt, but none of the kids were reacting well to the situation. Young Gene, in particular, was terrified. He felt full of energy, but unable to move due to his seat-belt locking and the tree deforming the car. He reached out, and instinctively pushed it away. He had just enough time to see the tree explode into dust before he passed out. None of the Kings experienced worse than some nasty bumps and bruises, and within a couple of days they were on the road again in a rented van. No one really wanted to talk about the accident and how the tree exploded, and a thicker silence than normal fell over Gene's life. That was broken when Duncan Summers showed up at the front door with a scholarship offer -- and answers. That was two years ago. Gene's refined his powers and his control over them, and now he has decided to try and fight crime with them. It's not exactly how he wants to live his life, but he has to know if his abilities can be used to do any good. Personality & Motivation: Gene prefers to be quiet and inconspicuous most of the time, but when he has an opinion he can be the loudest voice in the room. While he's not confrontational growing up with a bunch of older siblings has taught him that sometimes to the only way to get what you want is to push. Gene is rather terrified of his powers. He's worried that there's nothing good that he can do with his powers, and so he pushes himself to prove that he can be a hero with them. Powers & Tactics: Gene's not big on hurting people. He prefers to use his non-damaging powers to set up his allies to take enemies down, or delay combat long enough to get any hostages away. When he is forced into direct conflict, he prefers to stay far away so that his lack of physical strength isn't an issue. Complications: Secret Identity Gene doesn't want anyone to know that he's the TNTeen, mostly because... T-Baby Blues Having powers from the Terminus preys on his mind. Demolisher Gene's powers manifest as small, explosive spheres, so it's easy for them to roll into corners or cracks. Because of that he tends to do more damage to buildings than he intends to. Claustrophobia Small spaces tend to make Gene freak out and make his powers fire off randomly.

  4. Player Name: Curious Key Character Name: Warp Power Level: 10/12 (156/184) Trade-Offs: +4 Defense / -4 Toughness, +3 Attack / -3 DC Unspent Power Points: 28 In Brief: A college student and emergent mutant of Terminus energies trying to prove she has what it takes to be a hero. Alternate Identity: Katharine Lilly Shade Identity: Secret Birthplace: Normal, Illinois Occupation: Student Affiliations: Claremont (Alumni), FCU Family: Rose Shade (Mother), Alexander Shade (Father), Lyle Shade (Brother) Age: 20 (DoB: 1997, 3rd of August) Gender: Female Height: 5'4" Weight: 135lb Eyes: Red Hair: Red Kat's face is rounded and heart-shaped, with a pointed nose and eyes a little too wide for her face. Her rust-red hair, when left free, falls to her shoulders, but usually she ties it with hairband into a tail behind her; her skin is fair and lightly freckled and her eyes are a fiery, almost luminous red. Kat has thin shoulders and a slight, whipcord build, maintained with deliberate effort and supernatural potency. Tiny . . . But fierce! During day-to-day activities, Kat has a wide variety, but tends to lean more in toward comfortable sameness, sticking with leggings, boots, shirts and a vest, perhaps shorts instead during warmer months. She favors browns and reds. While in her capacity as a costumed heroine Kat lets her hair fall free; she sports a close-fitting black full body suit, extending from neck to wrists to ankle, with red boots and dark gloves to top it off. Warp wears a red vest over the rest, with a wavy spiral insignia emblazoned in white across its back. Power Descriptions: Warp's namesake directly relates to her connection to the Terminus, the heart of entropy which lies between all dimensions. She breaks through the barrier between them and moves along the edge where they meet, where distance means something much different, before breaking through the other end. It's painful to watch. It looks like she is ripping open flesh of reality and leaping through. With a red glow and threads of light-eating darkness Warp can cross great distances, tear open portals and draw reality-dissolving energies out of the void to hurry the end of things. When Warp uses her powers, she is rending the fabric of space time. Inherently destructive, she teleports by ripping holes of the universe and stepping through it, she creates her pocket space by ripping objects out of the universal fabric and putting them in a pocket. Rather than manipulating space, Warp breaks it in her hands. Her abilities seem to react more potently when turned to wholly destructive purpose. Overall, Kat's powerset would seem to better fit a villain than a hero. History: " . . . Look at these records. See the way they flare up? That's terminus energy." "Why didn't we pick this up beforehand? Does no one remember the invasion?" "Whoever did this, they did it right. Subtle. Somewhere no one would look too close. It was pegged as ordinary cosmic radiation until they found the Shade girl. More important, look at where it's centered on." ". . . The maternity ward, it's centered on the maternity ward." "It's no invasion, but the Shade girl is proof at that strength and proximity, mutations can still occur, if rarely. Fascinating." "T-babies. Someone's been making more." "That much is obvious, doctor. What we really need to know is . . . Why?" ~o~o~o~o~ There was no clear, dramatic moment when Katharine realized she was special. No epiphany, no realization in the face of adversity. It came in fits and starts, surfacing and falling back below by turns as her nature fought to exert itself more fully. Kat sleep-walked. Sometimes, she woke up in absurd places that she could not explain. Her hands were quick and clever and no sickness kept her down for long. She grew up in Illinois, in Normal Illinois, far from Freedom city. Metahumans and superheroes existed, of course, but they were something that happened to Other People, like hurricanes, like miracles. They didn't come to Normal. Perhaps this explains why no one came to the obvious conclusion. She played in martial arts tournaments in her father's dojo and won a great deal. It was something she did because it made her father smile and she enjoyed the challenge, while it was a challenge, and she learned the strength that comes to people who practice fighting their whole lives. She tried out in plays with the AbNormal Children's Acting troupe, and loved it. Loved the nervous feeling in her gut before walking out onto a stage, loved looking at the smiling crowd, loved that it was hard. One day, the AbNormal troupe was going to perform a depression era piece, and Kat was going to play a major role as street urchin in Chicago, working her way up. She dreamed of it the night before, and when she woke up she was in a dumpster. In downtown Chicago. In her pajamas. Kat was terrified. Back at home, her parents were terrified. A missing children's report was filed and some generous soul lent Kat their phone to call 911. The problem was solved before it could make too many waves . . . but Claremont has special sources that kept an eye on these impossibilities. ~o~o~o~o~ "I'm afraid so, Mr. Shade. As she is now, your daughter is a potential threat. Not just to herself, but everyone around her. She doesn't know what she is, she doesn't know how to control it, and one day she'll hurt someone badly enough that 'I'm Sorry' won't be enough." "Don't make that face; I know you're a good girl. And you can fix this. You just need to learn how." "I represent Claremont Academy. We teach many gifted children like Kat every year; to control their blessings, to be safe, and then go back to living normal lives, if that's what they want." "Thank you. You'll find that your daughter will receive the very best of care. Please sign here." ~o~o~o~o~ Day after day, Kat struggled to bring her power under control, working day in and day out with specialists to help master herself. Kat's parents made noise about moving to Freedom city and finding new jobs to be there for their daughter. But they never did. Heroes were something that just didn't happen in Normal, but in Freedom . . . they were everywhere. One by one the Kat's irregularities were singled out and brought under her control, and she wondered, surrounded all the while by young superheroes making a name for themselves . . . what would she do with it? Fail, it turns out. Her heroing career was promising enough, to begin. As a student at Claremont, she made ties. She worked with other heroes and built bonds. Listless and lost, Kat felt she had found some purpose in being Warp. When the Day of Wrath came, she served through it. As students died, she served through it. As her school was burned, she served through it. At the end, she seemed to be one of the students that had fared better. Kat was a very good actor. It was her powers that betrayed her, in the end. They did not care how good a face she put on it. Her emotional control helped keep it in check and she was falling apart. She pushed too far one day while patrolling as Warp and overloaded. The core of terminal power fed on her negative emotions and cascaded, rolling out of her body in waves and into the pavement. She did a great deal of property damage, nearly did harm to other heroes and barely kept from disintegrating herself alive. Her advisers at Claremont gently insisted she hang up her cape for now. And perhaps consider that, if her power could be so unstable, that she should consider living life as a normal person. It took years of treatment in the Claremont facilities for her to totally restore the facilities faith in her ability to use her powers without spilling over, but by the time her teachers were willing to allow her to try on the cape again she was too disheartened to try. ~o~o~o~o~ Claremont had ties to a lot of powerful schools. With their help and with decent grades, Kat had little trouble getting into FCU, following their program to help give metahuman kids integrate into normal life. She gave up on being a hero and cut ties with her powered friends and tried to fall into the rhythm of a normal life. She lived her life. She took exams, like a normal student would. Tried to ignore the capes flying overhead. Changed the channel when something superheroic came up on television. It wasn't anything specific or dramatic that brought her back. Just another cape, just another work of magic, just another metahuman being themselves and Kat couldn't take pretending any longer. Unceremoniously, without fanfare, Warp returned. Personality & Motivation: Dubious, weary cynicism. The flare and enthusiasm that Kat wore so openly on her sleeve when she came to Freedom City and joined Claremont has been . . . Not stamped out, but tempered. The events of the day of wrath . . . affected her. The fire and death were a great blow, and her powers failing the last pillar left, knocked aside. But . . . In the end, she has not changed so much. The younger Kat hid her insecurities behind a deliberate veil of optimism and energy. Today, Kat's countenance hides her optimism. In an way, Kat feels that she let herself down. Let Freedom down. Let the world down. Part of her insists that she was always a kid playing at heroism in a suit that didn't fit. That it was Not For Her. Nonetheless . . . Kat wants to believe she can. Wants to try. Powers & Tactics: The way Kat makes use of her powers depends mostly on how she conceptualizes it; as part of her body. She unleashes bursts from punches and kicks. In any engagement Warp prefers getting up-close and personal and striking down her targets with her bare hands, which her powerset makes quite simple, and when that isn't ideal she can always fall back to hitting hard with entropic blasts from a distance. Complications: All The World's A Stage: Kat has a flare for the dramatic even when restraint should hold her in check. As Warp she's even worse. Secret Identity : Warp's identity as Katharine Shade is not widely known, and she would prefer it stay that way. But I Have Exams! : Professors at FCU do not write exceptions on assignments for heroism. Terminal Terror : Kat has had curiously accurate nightmares about the Terminus for as long as she can remember. She remains quietly, horridly worried that her dreams are more than nightmares. That her powers connect her to the Terminus in a way above and beyond other T-babies. It Was One Time! : During her Claremont days, Kat's powers threatened to overwhelm her in a cascade of energy that threatened those around her. She has since recovered much of her control, but there remains an earmark next to Warp's name which is only exacerbated by her powers' known connection to the Terminus. Power Overwhelming : The way Kat's powers work revolve around strictly controlling and directing her own negative feelings. When that is compromised, so is her control, causing her powers to work in unpredictable ways. When an intense negative emotional state causes Warp's powers to go haywire a GM may offer a hero point.

  5. Players Name: Electra Characters Name: Hologram Power Level: 12 (221/221PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent PP: 0 In Brief: Last and least scion of a famously villainous family, Paige kicked over her bad-girl traces back in the 90s and took up on the side of good. Twenty years later, she's back in Freedom City with her super-husband and wonderkids, trying to keep all her plates spinning while avoiding any unfortunate family reunions. Alternate Identities: Paige Psion Identity: Paige Cline Birthplace: Freedom City Occupation: Television Personality Affiliations: Nicholson School, Discovery Channel Family: Richard Cline (Fast-Forward), William Cline (Thoughtspeed), Holly Cline, Bryant Cline (1.5 years old) Description: Age: 48 Apparent Age: 35 Gender: Female Ethnicity: Jewish Height: 5'9 Weight: 130 lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown Despite concessions to age like moisturizing foundation and a mom haircut, Paige looks awfully young to be the mother of a sixteen year old. She's pushing fifty, but easily passes for her early thirties, which is a fantastic superpower to have on the West Coast. Working in Hollywood keeps her thin, but unless she's being dragged onto a red carpet, she wears blue jeans or cargo pants with t-shirts. Her uniform is similarly simple, a morphic black turtleneck and fitted slacks with a silver belt and a holographic flash patch at breast and shoulder. Power Descriptions: Paige's everyday powerset falls under the mental/psionic descriptor and includes a swiss-army knife set of telepathic and illusory powers. In a pinch, though, she can call upon her unnatural birthright to soup up her powers with the entropic/Terminus Energy descriptor. When she uses her entropic power suite, it occasionally manifests itself as wisps of black fog or sparks of black energy. History: For details of Paige's history, please >refer to her History Page. Personality and Motivation: Paige grew up on the wrong side of the villain/hero divide, which gives her a unique sort of perspective on the battle between good and evil. She's been good for a long time and believes in good, but she's also of the belief that sometimes evil is just trying to live its life too, and you can just leave it alone until it actually starts acting up. Practical and pragmatic by nature, she provides grounding to her partner's flashier live-in-the-moment attitude. Paige is not a nightly-patrol style hero, she's just too busy for that. She puts her family and her work first, and she knows full well that in a town like this, just making yourself available to fight evil is enough to keep you busy without going out looking for trouble. Powers and Tactics: Hologram is not a skilled solo fighter and if confronted alone is likely to hide until she can summon backup. In a group combat, she can provide concealment for allies and confusion to her enemies, as well as distance reconnaissance. In a pinch, she can lash out with a psychic blow to hurt or stun her enemies, though she often has to call upon her entropic powers to make that effective. Complications: Before It Was Cool: Sure, T-Babies are totally a thing now, but when Paige was growing up, nobody knew what they were, and the entropic nature of some of her powers was mysterious and frightening. Even now, she is often reluctant to call upon those powers despite their usefulness. Driving the Minivan: Just because the men in your family can run across town in the blink of an eye doesn't mean they know where they're going. Paige keeps the family calendar and timetable, making sure people are where they need to be and when. If she is gone or starts losing track, the whole system will inevitably derail in magnificent fashion. Deep, Dark Fears: Paige has more vivid memories of being crushed to death in a subterranean landslide than anyone who didn't die of one really ought to. It makes her very leery of tight, dark places, especially underground. Long Commute: Paige works between three and six days a week in Los Angeles when her show is taping. Assuming Richard is around, she can be back in Freedom City in under an hour, but a lot can happen in an hour. And if he's not around, she's out of luck. Rotten Family Tree: Returning to Freedom City has put Paige back in Psion territory, back within reach of her very elderly but still formidable father, and the bright and psychotic band of nieces and nephews he hand-raised. If they take an interest in her and her family, it will cause all sorts of trouble. Den Mother: Paige not only has two dependent children (though William might hotly protest the description), the family home is often full of the kids’ friends on any given day or night. When work follows her home, she’s got a lot of innocent lives riding on her ability to send it packing again.

Mother and Father live in Hanover, His paternal grandparents have a farm 'upstate'. Wife is Alex Albright. Description: Age: 22 (DoB: August 16, 1993) Apparent Age: Early 20's Gender: Male Ethnicity: White Height:6'6" Weight:285lbs Eyes: Green Hair: Black Description: Mike has recently gotten what he hopes to be his last growth spurt topping him out well over six feet tall. He prefers baggy clothing still but given his most recent growth spurt he has difficulty finding anything that isn't relatively tight. He still prefers basic Jeans and t-shirt combos but has added some shirts with color or designs to his formerly black on black wardrobe as he comes further out of his shell. He towers over most of his fellow students and its not hard to place what exactly his powers are just from his appearance. In his efforts to clean up his image he has styled his hair into a short spit curl and usually manages to keep from going out with bed head these days. He moves with confidence much less uncertain and tentative then the boy who came to Claremont a few short months ago. In costume as Phalanx he shows he cleans up quite nicely. The high collar and shoulders of the costume are in Claremont gold dropping a deep V to his belt of bronzed plates, his Young Freedom Beacon acting as buckle, the rest of the form fitting suit is in deep blue. He pairs this with matching bracers and boots of burnished bronze, and a deep blue full length cape draped from his shoulders. Update 8/2015: The past few years have been good to Mike and his frame if anything has filled out as he has grown into full adulthood. Broad of shoulder and muscular he looks as if he works out regularly to obsesively with a strong squared jaw and well kept close cropped hair. His cloths are now rarely baggy and he carries himself with more confidence though still takes exceptional care not to intimidate or bully people with his size. History: If his parents hadn't been at odds over a natural home birth verses a hospital one Michaels life would have turned out very differently. As it was Melinda Harris found herself, alone thanks to Marvins workaholism, at the hospital birthing class when the invasion started. A portal to the terminus opened in the midst of the room bathing the expectant mothers in the strange energy of that place. Thanks to the quick reactions of her ad hock partner, who's husband also hadn't shown, she survived the assault and together managed to escape to safety. They became fast friends after that harrowing event and once they were born Michael and her daughter Alexandra soon were as well. Much to Marvin and Melinda's relief it at fist seemed the energies of the Terminus had had no effect on Michael, that was not to last however. He was certainly big for his age and strong too, though as doting parents they thought it well within the norm, then one day when Melinda was trying to get him to nap he floated up and out of the crib to continue his interrupted playtime. His parents made immediate efforts to make sure he would keep his abilities a secret they didn't know what else to do. When Melinda confided in her friend Rebecca she learned that little Alex had powers as well, the children spent even more time together from that point on as the parents could trust one another with each others secrets like they could few others When the children grew to school age it seemed as if the caution may have been overkill. both children were careful not to reveal that they were different even if they didn't fully understand why. Of course this was more responsibility than a young child really can be expected to bear. It was a normal schoolyard scuffle an older boy took a toy from Alex and Mike told him to give it back Things escalated from there too quickly and the next thing any one knew the other boy was across the room in a heap next to the crumbling wall. Mike was shocked and worried, and more than a little scared. He didn't know what had happened to the boy but he saw the reaction from the other students and the adults. When Alex gave voice to their thoughts his fears were confirmed he had done a very bad thing. The adults and his parents tried to tell him the boy would be fine but Alex had already given voice to their fears and he knew their comforting words to be lies. When the government men came he thought for sure they were gong to take him to jail. He didn't hear much of the conversation but Alex filled him in on the pertinent details. They were going to go to a special school now, a school where they would be tested to see the extent of the 'Terminus Effect' For the next ten years he was schooled at a secret ASTRO labs facility under the code name Phalanx. They Tested his abilities and make up charting his progress and trying to trace the energies that granted he and Alex their powers. Through either his mothers determined though limited grassroots campaign or Rebbecas old contacts the children as well as some others the unit had picked up were released to their parents once more and the obvious surveillance removed. Now at nearly sixteen years of age Michael is in a, comparatively, normal school for the first time. He's uncertain about this Claremont academy but happy to have a chance at something like normalcy. Update: Not long after beginning his studies at Claremont academy fate conspired to thrust him and several of his friends into action when a baseball stadium full of spectators was held hostage. After saving the day the groups nominal leader, and Mikes roommate, Edge declared them Young Freedom. They have had several other encounters together and separately with the cities criminal element and usually come out on top. The school sees to it that they are prepared for the journey before them and Mike had flourished under the training and camaraderie of the team. Update 8/2015: After graduating Claremnt Academy Mike went on to get a criminal justice AA and attend the police academy before joining the FCPD. His nature was revealed in short order in a rather spectacularly public manner. No longer able to pretend he can live the simple life Mike is at loose ends as he decides where to go from here. Update 07/2019: Mike has graduated with a bachelors in Education and Childhood Development and now works as a teacher at the Nicholson School, Usually Kindergarten and occasionally higher grades when a student or class might need his skills (or more likely durability) more. He has wed his long time sweetheart Alexandra Albright and taken her name putting more strain on his secret identity as she is already well known as the Heroine Psyche. It is only a matter of time before that secret is out and it may be an open secret to everyone else already. Personality & Motivation: Michael plays the part of the introvert and loner though he does desire companionship he has trouble trusting, both others and himself. He covers for this with acerbic humor and a generally sullen demeanor. Few have worked past his defenses in this regard, and fewer wish to bother, but those that have have made a friend for life. Michael is acutely aware of the destruction he is capable of, perhaps more so than even the testers are, and it terrifies him. He is a good person that truly does want to try and better the world but lives in fear of his own body. He lacks the confidence to embrace his potential instead hiding behind a facade of disinterest and sullenness. However when a friend is in danger, or even insulted, he will weather whatever the world will throw his way in their defense though he won't lash out physically even then. Mike steadfastly refuses to fight thus far, though he has yet to be truly tested in the real world. Update: Mike has come out of his shell with his participation in Young Freedom and he is much less somber when with the good friends he has made there. He still is usually the serious one in the group but will laugh with the others at a well told joke. this newfound camaraderie has strengthened his already strong protective impulse and woe be it to anyone who would threaten his friends. Update 8/2015: Mike has long dreamed of the simple normal life despite events conspiring to make such impossible. After leaving school this desire separated him from many of his school friends and has left him lonelier and more withdrawn. After the debacle of his attempt at being a police officer he is primed to give up the dream of normalcy and fully embrace his heroic identity. With little else left to identify with however he is at risk of losing himself to the job as it were. Update 07/2019: Mike has finally hit his stride with a balance in his life and work as a Hero and grown into a self assured and confident man in both parts of his life. He's devoted to giving back to the community that has helped him to grow and of course still to defending those weaker than himself. He no longer feels he stands in the shadows of the heroes of yesteryear but knows now he and the others of his generation reach high standing on their shoulders. He knows his powers and prowess draw comparisons to The Centurion and understand the responsibility that comes with that. He's now willing to shoulder that responsibility and be part of that symbol and legacy with the others following in earth's mightiest heroes footsteps. Powers & Tactics: Mike is a physical powerhouse but usually holds himself back. Since his training at Claremont with Young Freedom his abilities have improved drastically from their untrained state. He is still slow to put the full force of his powers into play but his control now allows him to unleash his full potential when it is most needed. He is always stalwart in defense of his comrades and innocents and takes care to keep collateral damage to a minimum. Phalanx always takes care to keep his strength in check. He will usually open with accurate attacks and against most foes utilize only a fraction of his might so as to make sure he doesn't injure anyone or cause too much damage. OOC he will often utilize less than his full strength bonus on attacks unless he knows the foe can take his full power. Complications: Heroes Code: Fully embracing his powers has left mike with feeling a responsibility to do so wisely and justly. Holding Back: Phalanx holds to the genre conventions that you do not open with your most powerful attack. He'll usually pull his early punches and try for non damaging attacks like disarms and grapples until a foe proves too strong or durable at which point he'll begin to ramp up. Secret Identity: One of the worst kept secrets but technically true. After his recent exposure out of costume the chances of being recognized increase. Registered: full records of who mike is are available to those with sufficient clearance. Responsibility: Alex (Psyche) and his family as well as his students and too the school particularly when working. Legacy: Following in the footsteps of the Centurion is no easy task, enemies may target him to prove their worth and he must constantly be the kind of example and symbol of hope the original Centurion came to be.
