What is your body type?


Willowy.  I’d say a dancer’s body.

 

Do you have any particular weaknesses, such as allergies or physical disabilities?


None really.

 

How do you carry yourself? Are you graceful, or heavy on your feet? Can you be stealthy, do you walk with confidence? 


Decade of dance and gymnastics and I am pretty graceful and light on my feet.  I am not sneaky.  Though I tend to groove a bit when I move about, impromptu dance routines are a thing.

 

Describe your skin, eye, and hair color. 


Dirty blonde hair, though I dye it and bleach it as needed.  My eyes are really blue, like that bright sorta sky blue.  I am smooth skin, and I don’t normally look tanned, unless I spend a lot of time outside, then I do.  I guess another blessing from my dad, I don't burn

.

How do you wear your hair, if applicable? Do you have facial hair?


Currently more in the undercut and side cut styles.  But generally short.

.

What is your vocal range? Is your voice distinctive in some way?
 
I have that smooth sort of alto, a little deep.  But size, so that makes sense..

 

Do you have any distinctive habits, nervous tics, or mannerisms? Where did they come from, and what causes them? Do other people notice and remark on these habits? Do they annoy you or other people? 

 

Like totally.  I have that west coast speech thing.  Also I slouch when I am not dancing, because I am kinda huge.

 

History

 

Where do you come from?


Los Angeles.

 

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


Moved from the best coast to here.

 

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


Eh?  I am not a big patriot.  A place is a place is a place.

 

How do you feel about the place you come from? 


California?  I love it. I can see not loving it though.

 

Where is your home town? What was/is it like?
 
LA.  It’s LA?

 

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


Apparently I am half Arabic.  I didn’t really know until later.  I look like a Caucasian, so I guess it didn’t affect me.

 

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

 

Dancing.  My life, and aspirations revolve, or revolved, around it.

 

Were there any traumatic experiences in your early years (death of a family member, abandonment, orphaned at an early age)?
 
Not really?  Barring my powers showing up.


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


Watching a presentation of the Nutcracker ballet. I wanted to do that, be like that. It was so beautiful.

 

What stupid things did you do when you were younger?

 

I am still young.  So, I expect more.  But... I snuck out of my house to go to a concern with some friends a few years ago, and got ditched.


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


Still in school.  Claremont, though hopefully Julliard.  I don't have an opinion yet.  My last school in LA was fun, awesome, and equal parts frustrating.

 

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

 


I got Mr. Floofins.  He’s cool.  He is a tapdancing bear.  Do I need to elaborate more beyond that?

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


I am just trying to learn my powers.

 

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


I am not even sure I am a hero.

 

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


No.  I guess the powers.

 

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


… I don’t know.  That scares me a little, the way my powers are...  How they behave, it is a little worrying.

 

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 don’t know…  I guess I would end up a bit like my father?

 

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


No?  A parking violation.

 

Family


What are your biological parents' names? 


Natalie Conrad, and Amir al-Misri.

 

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


I was raised by my mum, Natalie, and later my step-father, Harold.  I never knew about Amir until later. It's the fight that actually caused this mess.

 

What was their standing in the community? What did/do they do for a living?


My mum is a popular, and known stunt woman.  My dad is a producer.  They’re both well known in the circles, though they don’t do too much in the community at large, I suppose.

 

Where are your parents now?

 

Still in LA.

 

Did your family stay in one area or move around a lot?


Stayed based in LA, they are both involved in entertainment, so they would travel for work.

 

How did you get along with their parents? How do you get along with them now (if applicable).


I love my mum and dad, there is some arguments, but nothing major.  My mum is one of my best friends, but she is still my mum.  My dad is great.  I don’t know my father.

 

How do your parents view you now, or how would they? 

 

I don’t know anymore.  I mean, I did sort of attack my mum with my powers… they might be scared of me, or for me.  I don’t know how Amir views me.

 

Do you have any siblings? If so how many and what are their names? Describe your relationship with them.


I’ve got a brother, Nicholas.  He is a bit of a jerk, but he is like 12 so that’s to be expected right?

 

What was your birth order in the family?


Me and then Nick.

 

Where are your siblings now (if applicable)? Do they have families of their own? What do they do?


Still living at home.

 

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


Yes, I email and text and talk to them all.

 

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


No?  Maybe eventually my father?

 

Is any member of the family special to you in any way (perhaps, as a confidant, mentor, or arch-rival)?


My mum is my confidant.

 

Are there any black (or white) sheep in the family (including you)? If so, please explain.


None?  I mean my mum is sort of the black sheep from her parents, so I’ve never really interacted with them.

 

Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor? If so, please explain, including how it has affected your life.


None that I know…?

 

Do you have a partner and children currently? If so, please describe them.

 

I don’t have time for a partner.

 

If you do not have a partner or children, do you want them someday? How firm are you in your opinion on this, and what might change your mind?


I have other concerns at the moment.  And I want to attend Julliard.

 

What type of person would be your ideal mate?


I don’t know?  Probably not a dancer or performer… I mean, I’ve met enough of them!


Relationships

Do you have any close friends? If so, please describe them, and how you came to be close to them.


None really?  Dancing and trying to get into the schools, and all that has bred little time, and rivals.  I have met some people who are cool, so we might end up close.

 

Do you have a best friend? If so, how did they become your best friend? How close are you to your best friend?


I support my mum.  Pretty close, but… now?

 

If you were to go missing, who would worry about you?


My family, maybe some new classmates, and probably my father?

 

Have you lost any loves? If so, how did it happen, and what did you do?


No.

 

Do you have any bitter enemies? If so, please describe them and their history with you.


Um, Julia Cassaveti.  But that was because she made sure there was some problems with some of my tryouts for performances.

 

If you have enemies, how do you think they might attempt to work against you in the future?


Well we’re on different coasts now so… no?

 

What is the worst thing someone has done to you?


Julia straight slashed my tires.

 

Where do your loyalties lie? In what order?

 

Uhm, my family, my dreams, my… team?  My classmates?  I dunno how to define that.

 

Who or what do you trust the most? Why?


I’d like to say my family, because they are my family.  We're close.

 

Who or what do you despise? Why?


Cruel people.  I don’t feel I need to justify myself on that, people who make others hurt, for no reason.

What qualities do you admire most in other people? Are these qualities you possess?


Compassion and perseverance.  That is it.  I believe I do

 

What qualities do you hate most in other people? Do you have any of those qualities?


Cruelty, selfishness.  I am neither.  I mean a little thoughtless, sure, but not cruel or selfish.

 

Do you have a secret identity? If so, who knows it? Do you hide it from people who are close to you? Why?
 
I suppose so?  I mean, I am trying to hide my identity where possible...

 

Do you work well on teams and in groups? Are you a leader or a follower?


I think I work well in teams, I do tend to be jumping in the front.

 

Are you on a super team? If so, how do you get along with your comrades? Do you trust them, or do you have secrets from them?
 
I go Claremont, does that count?  We don’t share everything with each other.

Are you a member of any church, fraternal organization, club, committee, political party, or other group? How much time do you spend on that?
 
Not really?  Do the dance schools/academies count?  If so those.  I don’t have a whole like of time for anything else.


Personality & Beliefs

Who are your heroes?


Maria Kochetkova and Pablo Picasso.  My mum.

Did you ever become disillusioned with former heroes or idols? If so, why and what were the circumstances?


Not really?  I liked painting and drawing and dancing.  I like what they've done, and my mom still kicked ass when I was a baby.
 

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


Am I here?  I don’t think I am am.  I don’t know how I feel about it.

 

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


I suppose dancing, getting accepted to a dance organization.

Have my powers under control, and maybe be free

 

What are your long term goals (what would you like to be doing twenty years from now)?


Retiring from dance?  Maybe become a teacher.

 

What is your greatest fear? Why? What do you do when something triggers this fear?


Losing control of my powers…  Because I almost killed my mom with them, and I just… I go into shock.

 

Is there anything you would give you life for? 


I guess, altruistic sacrifice.

 

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 sort of have it, from my family.  It exists.  It’s a thing.  I am not one to dwell on it overmuch.


How do you generally treat others?

 

I'd like to think well?  I give everyone a chance.  The world is filled with weirdos, might as well do right by all.


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

 

I am trusting to a degree, I feel you have to let your trust be abused.  Some other people have tried to abuse it, and I don't talk to them any more.

 

Are you introverted (shy and withdrawn) or extroverted (outgoing)? Do you have a lot of self-confidence?
 
I waffle between.  I feel I am confident on either side of the aisle there.

 

How do you act around attractive, available members of your preferred sex? 


I try to match the social context as best I can.  But... I can be a bit... pushy?

 

What are your most annoying habits?


I am a bit irreverent at times, and I make non sequitur jokes that people tend to not like.

 

Do you feel contempt for any general category of people? Who are they, and why?

 

I try not to, people are judgemental by nature, I try not to act on stuff without ample reasoning.  But cruel people.

Eucalyptus.

 

Do you have a favorite animal?


Percival.

 

What is your most treasured possession? Why?


A set of crowbill pens.  I got them for Christmas one year, and over break I just was obssessed with using them.  I love the way they feel.

Both can be fun, I tend to be a bit more city.

Watch my brother?

Sick.  Sick.  Sick.  I don’t know.  I don’t know at all.

 

How would you react if something important was stolen from you?


I would be upset, but it’s a thing that can happen.  Ad I will move on.

 

How would you react to public humiliation?


It happens.  I recover from that pretty easy, having fallen off a few stages in performances.  So double down, establish eye contact, and show them that I am the alpha!

 

How would you react if a good friend or relative were purposely or accidentally killed? Has it happened to you?

 

It’s happen accidentally, it… was upsetting and I was sad, but I can’t change what happened, and I eventually moved on, trying to remember the person as much as possible.  A friend died in a car accident.

 

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


I don’t know?  I think… murder, it just stops them.  The victim, their future.

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

 

Control my powers.

 

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?


Learn.  I am surrounded by better and more skilled dancers, and gymnasts, and painters.  So I just want to learn.  I want to make myself better.


Lifestyle & Hobbies

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


Wake up.  Work out or dance.  School.  More dancing.  Do some sketching later.  Sleep.  Eat in the middle of all those.

Dancing, calligraphy, painting, drawing.  Eating.  So much eating.  I like surfing and longboarding

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


Dental records or my height?

 

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


My dancing.  I hope it inspires out to dance.

 

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


If I do not control my powers, yes.

 

What do you perceive as your greatest strength?


How I can shake it off.  I am adaptable and I don’t adhere to stuff.  Shake it off.

 

What do you perceive as your greatest weakness?


I don’t know?  My fear, right now.  I suppose.

 

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...
 
Control is a thing that you need to sort out in a way that works for you.  Applying the same methods in all aspects of your life is problematic.
