    Character Name: Crychek Slavnor
    Code Name: Tazer
    Specialization: Hand to hand combat, information smuggling, data transfer specialist
    Abilities: Can internalize, amplify and manipulate his body's electricity. Using his hands he generally can incapacitate people by giving them an electric charge, He can also store information/data and transfer it from one recipient to another using his body.
    Augmentations: Has a Near Field Electric Modulator grafted onto his cerebral cortex, where spine and skull meet. This allows him to amplify and manipulate electric charges, mostly his own.
    Physical Description: Six feet two inches in height and twenty six years old, he was a Global Force Operator within the Special Operations Division for one of the largest Biomedical Genetic Manipulation & Research companies registered. He is of medium build and from Puerto Rico. He uses prototypical shades due to his implant messing with letting in too much light into his eyes.
    Psyche Profile: After having bounced around the military and then mercenary contracts, he found he had a very cynical view of the world. He grew up poor to middle class, but would always excel in whatever was put in front of him. After exiting his freelance position, Doctors noted in his psyche profile that he suffers from acute anger management issues, with some rage and mistrust directed ad figures of authority.
    History: Crychek lived as normal a life as he could. He grew up poor to middle class, with his childhood marked by an altercation with a teacher during his time in school. This caused his issues with authority. As he was always fighting due to his anger management, he became quite good at it, until he caused a death and had to join the military to escape retribution.

    I had to dig through my PMs for this:


    Player Name: amsawtell
    Character Name: Yuiko Huntsman
    Code Name: Wraith
    Specialization: Item Retrieval
    Abilities: Yuiko can phase-shift. This applies to her, her clothes, and small items (up to 15 pounds). She must have a general idea of how thick and what is on the other side before she can shift.
    Augmentations: Yuiko has small retinal feeds that help her to assess information. She can also use these to zoom in on items; acting like binoculars.
    Physical Description: Yuiko is short and small in stature with long, shiny dark hair. She’s thin and petite with a wide smile and dark eyes. Her skin is a golden honey color but with light freckling across her nose. She typically blends in to a crowd. She tends to wear casual professional clothes (cardigans, blouses, suits, dresses, and slacks) unless she’s “working” her second job. She wears gold wire-frame glasses during the day. The only jewelry she wears is a ring on her left hand given to her by her maternal grandmother which is gold with scrollwork and a small emerald and a set of pearl earrings and necklace given by her father when she graduated from college.
    Psyche Profile: Though she was loved by both parents she never felt “at home” anywhere. Yuiko started acting out as a pre-teen to gain attention—stealing, lying, skipping curfew, etc. Yuiko still thrived at school. She’s a thrill-seeker and actually enjoys shoplifting though she hides in her “disguise” of bookish research assistant.
    History: Yuiko is the only child of an English soldier and a Japanese artist. She grew up moving between England and Japan depending on which parent had custodial rights for the year. Yuiko discovered her abilities at puberty when she “fell” through a wall she was leaning against after getting in trouble in class. After she started acting out as a preteen she was sent to a boarding school where she thrived in her studies. She was still a thrill-seeker and was often caught trying to sneak boys into the dorms, skipping classes to smoke with other girls, or even shoplifting. She was eventually expelled but not before she was accepted into a college. She finally applied for emancipation at sixteen and was granted her majority (her parents agreed). Yuiko’s “second” job is as a jewel and art thief. She takes commissions from patrons who pay her well. Yuiko researches the building she is to break into at length, learning the dimensions the weak points.

    Character Name: Luke Seren

    Code Name: Uriel

    Specialization: Hand-to-hand combat, small arms, military weaponry

    Abilities: Photokinesis, through manifestation. A finite amount of “light” stored within his body that he can emit via the release points on his body, which can be turned hard and sharp for usage as a knife, or soft and gentle to protect against a fall. He only has about as much as his body mass to use, which increases or decreases based on the density. Using his ability doesn't take any physical toll, so he can use it as long as he likes, but his creations always have to be connected to him in some manner, otherwise they just turn back into normal photons and fade away. If this happens, Luke loses the amount of light severed and must recharge via a light source, either from the sun, or by absorbing it from an artificial light source, such as a lamp or flashlight.

    Augmentations: A net of cybernetic tattoos that criss-cross his body and help him focus his ability.

    Physical Description: Blond, short hair in a military trim and serious blue eyes. He has a vertical scar through his right eye, through the skin of his brow and cheek but not affecting his eye. Weathered, tough skin that has been tanned by burning sunlight and hardened by bitter cold. He would be handsome if not for the scar and the hard set of his face, and he has the physique of activity, all wiry strength with no excess muscle where unnecessary. He wears t-shirts and black military combat pants with a sturdy pair of combat boots, and often wears an armored tactical vest over his clothes, partly disguised as civilian wear. He has a tattoo on the palms of both hands about the size of a watch face of a ring around a penny-sized dot from which his “light” is released. Placed in equal spacing around the circle are eight tendrils, each ending in points, so that the tattoo looks a little like miniature sun. The tattoos are connected to his network of tattoos, one of the release points for his Ability. Other, similarly shaped release points are also located symmetrically on his back, near the shoulder blades, his elbows, knees, and feet.

    Psyche Profile: Years of combat have sanded a once cheerful, carefree personality down, making him more realistic and gruff. Outside of missions he is agreeable enough, though with a tendency to stay stern-faced and serious for the most part, but on missions he is all business, focused entirely on completing the task at hand. His fighting style also developed from a light-hearted, almost lazy approach to a serious, crippling technique that utilizes weakness in attacks and human anatomy to incapacitate foes without requiring superfluous strength.

    History: Luke was found on the steps of an orphanage as a baby, with a single card placed in his basket with his name and nothing else. It was at the orphanage that his Ability first manifested, wreaking havoc whenever it manifested. At the age of six he was adopted by a set of government-funded parents who recognized his Ability’s potential. They gave him his tattoos and trained him in how to control his Ability, homeschooled in a curriculum of both physical and Ability-intensive combat in addition to his normal studies.

    After he completed his high school-level courses, they led him to a government-funded university that gave him the same, albeit harder, training. He spent his time there studying strategy and intelligence and at the young age of twenty was recruited by agents for a team for the “gifted”. He spent years fighting at the behest of the organization in charge, taking on and completing numerous missions in locations around the globe. Slowly but steadily team members began to die off with few replacements taking their place, until finally Luke was one of only a handful remaining. The unit was shut down, leaving Luke and his team stranded with only a few personal effects, a decorated but sealed file, and a few bucks.

    KP and Amsawtell, I've still got your character sheets over on the other board so you're good, RH, I'll take a look at yours and shoot you a PM later today.

    One thing I've been thinking about is scaling back a bit on the harder sci-fi (like the enhancements and stuff), in part because some of it over-powers the characters and it'll work better if we can scale them back a bit,

    We can do missions on the forum boards, but I still want to keep the behind the scene stuff over in the private group, including what goes on in their home base. Sound good?

    Wiggling his fingers, looking at his hands produce sharp blue crackles of electricity, replies, "Sure."

    I actually changed Luke's character and physical description in the new app, having him go from young and carefree to toughened by combat, and updated his story just to have a little nod to the original and give background to how he changed. Is it okay if I use the new version of him? Also, just edited the new app to cut down on Augs, so it's just his tattoos which I think restrict more than power him up. That all right? If not I can just make them regular old tattoos that he trained using his powers with.

    Also, are we going to use the old group and forum pages? I'm not sure how you want to do the new story, whether it's set after the old stuff or if it's a complete reboot, but I don't know whether a lot of the old posts are super relevant since it looks so far that only you, me, and Amsy are jumping in from the old crowd, especially if you want to go in a different direction with the cyberpunk stuff. It might make a little more sense to set up all new stuff?
