History

Where do you come from?

Germany, in the state of Bavaria.

Have you made any major moves, or do you live in your hometown?

Originally, I moved away to a cabin on the border of America. Nowadays, I live with my uncle, aunt, and cousin (I prefer to call her sis).

Do you feel loyal to your country of citizenship? Do you consider yourself patriotic? How do you feel about the government of your country?

I don't worry too much about political affairs, especially since I'm technically an immigrant.

How do you feel about the place you come from?

I've always enjoyed the rural side of Bavaria more than the Urban areas of America.

Where is your home town? What was/is it like?

I don't remember what it was called, but it was a quiet rural town, with a science lab on the outskirts.

Growing up, were most of the people you knew similar to you, or were you somehow a minority? How did that affect you?

Minority, I had a brain error that made it difficult for brainwaves to reach my muscles, it made it difficult for me to make actual friends.

Is there something you've always been really good at or really bad at? How has that affected your life?

I can be a bit jerkish at socializing. It has kinda left me a loner for a large part of my life.

Were there any traumatic experiences in your early years (death of a family member, abandonment, orphaned at an early age)?

Aside from the brain error, my father was arrested for (forcibly) assisting in an operation that cured my said error, among other things.

Briefly describe a defining moment in your childhood and how it influenced your life.

When my brain error was healed, it gave me electrical powers, and I wasn't mentally challenged anymore.

What stupid things did you do when you were younger?

I always felt being anti-social was a terrible thing, still haven't gotten over it yet.

Where did you go to school? How much school did you have, and did you enjoy it?

When I could go to school (after my error was cured), I was in school/high school for 8 years before leaving Germany.

Do you have any mementos of your childhood? What are they, and why did you keep them? If you have none, why not?

My father's trench coat. The last remaining thing that I have to remind me of him.

When did you decide to become a hero? Why? Did anyone influence you one way or another in the decision?

I wanted to be a hero to prevent others from incidents happening to them like what happened to my mother.

Is the reason you give people for becoming a hero different than your real reason? If so, why?

No, I don't feel that there's anything important to hide about it.

Do you have any deep, dark secrets in the past that may come back to haunt you?

The scientists that preformed the operation on me could be one, but they should be arrested and executed by now.

Do you represent yourself as being different from who you really are? Why?

I sometimes feel that I prefer being Rycon than Ashley...

If you do have these secrets, what do you fear would happen if the truth became known? How far would you go to protect those secrets?

I think I would be fine if anyone found out. I wouldn't really go far, at best, just use persuasion on others.

Do you have any sort of criminal record? If so, is it public knowledge?

Uh... I don't think I would make it out of Germany if I had one.

Family

Rycnov (my father) and Linda (my mother)

Were you raised by them? If not, please explain and describe who raised you.

Both raised me till I was 14, my mom raised me to here.

My dad was a scientist, my mom was a former nurse during the Cold War, at least, that's what she told me.

Where are your parents now?

I got along well with both of them, even after the operation.

I was an only child until I moved here. Now I have Danielle as my "older sister", who watches over me sometimes, we get along really well.

Danielle still lives here in the same house. She's a deputy to policemen/policewoman, hoping to become an officer to support us.

Do you stay in touch with them or have you become estranged?

I get in touch with Danielle often, my aunt and uncle however, work a lot, so it's usually just her and me.

Do you love or hate one member of the family in particular?

Danielle is the closest member to me that I've ever had, so yes you could say I "love" her.

Danielle and I treat each others as sisters rather than cousins.

The death of my mother, as said before.

Where do your loyalties lie? In what order?

Personality & Beliefs

Who are your heroes?

I don't really have a "hero" but I've always looked up to Danielle.

Not really no. I was born past all those wars to be disillusioned by "war heroes" and "saviors."

Do you like being a hero? If so, what is the most rewarding part? If not, what makes you keep doing it?

I enjoy being one, It's rewarding to see that you have prevented the loss of a life or a dangerous incident from occurring.

Is there anything that would make you give up hero work, or even switch sides?

I always said that I will follow my ideals (to protect), so if I must retire then yes, to completely switch sides destroys any sense of ideals I have.

A world without such needless violence and immoral people, that is what I would sacrifice for.

How do you feel about money and material wealth? Do you desire it or disdain it? Are you miserly with what you have, or do you like to share? Is it a mark of success, or a means to an end?

I feel that all I need is enough money to live. It feels like a means to an end.

How do you generally treat others?

Generally I try to open up if I'm Ashley, and I am kind when I do. As Rycon, I can be a bit of a jerk, probably because I'm more confident and can feel superior. I also lack some patience because I feel that I don't have a lot of time to be Rycon, so I don't worry my family.

Are you a trusting person? Has your trust ever been abused?

I'm not easily trusting, so people need to open up before I can trust them. No, my trust has never been abused.

What do you consider to be the worst crime someone could commit and why?

Selfish acts of violence and murder.

If your life were to end in 24 hours, what five things would you do in those remaining hours?

I would pucker up, go out with Danielle and try to make as many friends as I can, not using the time as an excuse to make friends. I would also go on a date with Blake and express my love to him. I would also give Danielle back the locket and pass on my father's trench coat.

Career & Training

Do you have any special training in your hero skills? If so, where and how did you get it?

I practiced my hand movements so I can hold items and throw electricity with better accuracy.

I was trained with my electricity skills when I was young. I have the scientists to thank for that (one who was my father).

I've been doing a little cooking practice, though I'm pretty bad at it. I also like to work on blacksmith work due to my practicing in school back in Bavaria.

Have you ever received any awards or honours?

Nope, unless surviving an underground operation is considered an honour.

What skill areas would you like most to improve in? Is there anything you can't do that you wish desperately you could?

I really want to improve with my social skills. For the latter question, I need a lot of time to think about.

How do you act around people who are more skilled than you in areas you'd like to improve? Are you jealous, or do you try and learn?

Often I look on them with curiosity rather than envy, unless they have really big ego's, then they come off as annoying jerks.

Lifestyle & Hobbies

What is a normal day for you? How do you feel when something interrupts this routine?

Normally I go to school and do work there. In spare time I would patrol with Blake or Aiko, maybe both. An unaware situation can be interesting, if dangerous.

Do you have any hobbies, or interests outside hero work? What are they, and where did you pick them up?

Being a blacksmith of sorts for making equipment. I picked it up in welding class back in Bavaria.

Do you have a special place where you keep your valuables?

I just keep my locket with me or in a closet in my room.

What's your preferred means of local travel? How about long distance?

Local travel, I just walk. Through long distance, I use my teleport power (though it leaves me a little dizzy afterwards).

Miscellaneous

Have you ever made a will, or tried to make arrangements for your death? What provisions did you make?

Nope, I don't plan on dying this early.

If your features were to be destroyed beyond recognition, is there any other way of identifying your body?

The locket, it should be durable enough to survive.

What would you like to be remembered for after your death?

That I fought to protect others and that I cared for the people in this city.

Do you believe you pose a threat to the public? Why or why not?

The ability to appear anywhere that has an electrical device can be quite a threat.

My will to protect and my skills to back it up.

What do you perceive as your greatest weakness?

My profound caring for Danielle, Blake, and Aiko.

As a player, if you could, what advice would you give your character? Speak as if he/she were sitting right here in front of you. Use proper tone so they might heed your advice...

Journal Entry #1

"I have recieved a letter from Danielle. She wished me luck and stated that I should write a journal about important events that may happen in my life, or just progress in general. So... here it is.

I live at Claremont Acadamy now. I have already met some good people like Mike, Blake, James, and... Chris. I share a dorm with Karakuri Aiko, who I believe is an immigrant like me. Neither of us need any sleep so sometimes I find her wandering around campus or the city in general. Perhaps I should only write when I have alot of information to write. I'd rather not have many small entries compared to the more larger ones.

I also met Dr. Archeville again. I have not seen him since my time in Germany. He helped me find this biotic implant in my head and made it begin functioning, now it may improve my electricity abilities.

Journal Entry #2

A lot has happened since I last made an entry. perhaps I should make these more often...

There was an invasion, from the Grue apparently. I never thought I would encounter an event like that before, I'm lucky to have made it out in one piece! Sometime after, I went to this arena place, not really the brightest move I've made. I went into combat with Chris, who seemed to have recovered from... whatever it was. I was really worried, with Dr. Archeville and Aiko watching the fight, but I did well. No, I won actually. I didn't think I would win but I did. I noticed however, that my attacks seemed to have penetrated Geckoman's wounds more than usual, I should go over my abilities and limits again, I'd rather not cause permanent injuries to anyone.

And lately I've had this awkward feeling. Sometimes I zone out and find myself in a pitch black area. There's always a person waiting for me there. The first time was a baby, about a year old, crying for someone. When I walk up and try to comfort it, it stops crying and looks at me, then begins crying again, harder than before, as if it was rejecting me... The second time it was a girl, about 6 or 7 years old. She was also crying, this time when I walk up, she starts screaming at me, telling me to "go away, stop being me." constantly shouting stuff she doesn't seem to understand, like she tries to make a point... This has been happening since the Grue Invasion.

I suppose that is all to state. I should try posting more often next time.
