WELCOME TO  THE  ONE VERSION OF THE FUTURE
This is the future which Nami calls home. This future is still intact but exists separately from the current timeline. Many would call this an alternate universe, but for the people in this timeline this is their one and only reality and it is bleak. 
OTHER NOTES
The technical aspects of the event info will be posted tomorrow. This is just the background information portion. If there are any questions, please send a message!
MAIN POINTS ABOUT THIS TIMELINE:
PROTECT does not exist and neither do the Rogues
Most Rogues would’ve been part of the Rebellion
The Rebellion vehemently oppose the Post Human Identification Tattoo
Post Humans who are associated with the Rebellion are being tracked down. The ones who pose a bigger threat are being detained.
Some Rebels went on the run to avoid being captured by Nexus
DETAILED TIMELINE:
THE BEGINNING - Already Canon
June 6th, 2007 - Nexus is founded 
March 17th, 2008 - Nexus cooperates with Pinehearst for small projects and finds out about the existence of “specials” aka Post-Humans.
February 8th, 2010 - Claire makes Post-Humanity known to the public and Nexus starts taking on bigger projects
April 22nd, 2010 - Nexus opens a new branch in New York
December 10th, 2010 - Nexus contacts former Pinehearst members who not only divulged top secret lab-work but also helped Nexus set up the foundations for future “research.” 
May 9th, 2011 - Employment opportunities are officially extended to Post-Humans. “Special means” are also employed in order to get certain Post-Humans to sign on. 
September 7th, 2012 - After a member of the Rebellion divulges the location of their secret hide-out, Nexus executes a covert raid to drive them out. 
THE ASCENSION - Divergent from the current timeline
September 2012 - The Rebels are scattered. The injured ones are easy to find via recent hospital records. Due to this and other means of getting a hold of the Rebels, moles are easily implanted into the group. The Rebellion find a new hideout
October 2012 - Rebels start fighting back by smearing Nexus’ name and destroying their shipments. Nexus requests Federal investigation and the FBI begins working with Nexus to keep track of Post-Human (PH) activity throughout the country. 
February 2013 - The Rebellion enlists the help of Senator Jones, Governor Pegg, and various other big political figures to aid PH rights. 
May 2013 - Early 2014 - The PH ban that was placed on the military is ruled unconstitutional and and struck down. A handful of states stop making PH ID cards mandatory. Other changes occurred throughout the country in favor of PHs.
THE SHIFT IN POWER
Mid-2014 - Nexus officially releases a small list of known Rebels to the FBI to send a message to the Rebellion. PHs were either heavily monitored or taken in for questioning. The PH underground community become scared now that the government’s partnership with Nexus is made public. The Rebellion’s number fall sharply.
Late-2014-Early 2015 - Nexus releases announcements of their first beta type for an ability nullifier which triggers a small raid of the headquarters and all information related to the project is destroyed. Due to public pressure to keep PHs accountable for their actions and keep them all in track, the PH ID Tattoos are issued. Politcians with Pro-PH sympathies are placed under great scrutiny for granting amnesty to certain people. 
Mid-2015-2018 - Frustrated by the lack of enforcement of the tattoos, Nexus set forth to create an abilities detector. Once the project is completed, they present it to the authorities and make a proposal to have Nexus to branch out even more into the enforcement area. Their proposal is accepted with the main stipulation that all Nexus agents need proper training first. The Rebellion mistake Nexus’ lull in activity as Nexus losing power and they get overly confident. The Rebellion’s push for PH rights slow down to give everybody a chance to breathe, but by the end of 2018, Nexus unveils their new ordained power to regulate PH activity all around the country.
THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL 
2019-2020 - Nexus covertly convinces their investors and other supporters to require employees and consumers to have the PH tattoo so that even if the tattoo isn’t required by law, it’s impossible to get by without one. Some PHs with very loose ties to the Rebellion take action against these companies which gives Nexus their opportunity to turn the public opinion against the Rebellion to get an even bigger rise out of the Rebels.
2021-2023 -  Nexus takes advantage of the PHs acting out and singles out the Rebellion for not registering and getting the tattoo which means that they’re threats to society. Some people within the Rebellion either cave and get the tattoo or they simply just leave New York altogether. However most Rebels stay behind to try to take down Nexus with the help of the remaining politicians on their side. When Nexus feel that their propaganda is weakening, they stage a few scenarios to pin the blame on the Rebellion. 
2024-2028 -  The Rebellion are made out to be a terrorist group and the push for these Rebels to identify themselves and get the tattoo starts full force. A perimeter is set around the state with Nexus’ ability neutralizer technology so the Rebels will be forced to be tattooed. With the Rebels who are deemed as more dangerous, Nexus takes more drastic measures and captures them. 
2029-2034 - A number of Rebels get the tattoo while some stand their ground and demand the release of the PHs who are detained by Nexus. They start going on the run to evade Nexus while trying to start a movement against Nexus and the ill treatment against PHs.
September 2035 - The Rebellion plans an infiltration on the Nexus’ base to release the Rebel captives who were wrongfully detained. Nexus intercepts them in hopes of capturing them all at once. Nami is sent back to the past.
WELCOME TO  THE  ONE VERSION OF THE FUTURE

This is the future which Nami calls home. This future is still intact but exists separately from the current timeline. Many would call this an alternate universe, but for the people in this timeline this is their one and only reality and it is bleak.

WELCOME TO THE RPG, E V I E
You have been accepted into the Heroes RPG! Please make your account and send it through our inbox so that we may add you to the follow list! Don’t forget to check out the NEW MEMBER CHECKLIST.
Your OOC Name/Age: Hillary, 22Time Zone: ESTHow do you think your OC will fit into the plot: [this is to avoid having an excessive amount of expendable OC’s with fluff plots] : 
The Rogues have taken quite a hit in the past two years, their numbers are down through a combination of death and desertion, most importantly in this case, they lost one of their footholds in the law enforcement field with the murder of Zora Novak. Public feeling is obviously against them, PROTECT and Nexus both seem to have gained the upper hand, so they could use a very dedicated Rogue to pull some strings for their members even if the masses think that they’ve been rendered impotent by the loss of Death. I would think in this unsteady climate, that the Rogues are a bit like a fairly deadly Whac-A-Mole game with faulty wiring, with law enforcement and Nexus willing to take far more vicious evasive measures against the first indication of their revival, so it could be very useful to have someone with those ties.
Briefly write about their character’s views on the three factions (PROTECT, Nexus, Rogues):
PROTECT: If they weren’t given such a wide berth by the public these days, if they didn’t get so much government funding, Evie would be okay with writing them off as well-meaning idiots, but the fact of the matter is that there is an ingrained rivalry between the NYPD and all other criminal justice organizations (don’t talk to her about those FBI assholes) and she shares the resentment that most of her fellow officers feel towards PROTECT meddling in their cases. Now, the post-humans that come through her precinct might be better treated if they are transferred to PROTECT, that possibility might exist, but she also resents the implication that all of the detectives and duty officers are post-human loathing bigots. Also the paperwork required to transfer those cases, she resents that too. Her reasons for disliking PROTECT are half tied to her professional bias and half to her factional alliance. Her coworkers know that she dislikes the bullshit that PROTECT’s existence has added to their workload, they don’t know just how much she really dislikes the organization or why, it’s safer that way.
Nexus: Privately, she might just refer to Jonathan Dexter as Science Hitler, but only a handful of people have heard her use that term and only one of them used to work with her before he got himself fired in the same case that nearly stole her job away as well. Nexus is at the top of her shit list, she views the organization and its members in purely black and white terms and is not at all interested in hearing your arguments as to what good they may have done the world in the past twenty years or so. She may loathe PROTECT, but if you made her choose between letting Nexus in charge and letting PROTECT run things, she’d pick the lesser of the two evils.
Rogues: There are Rogues that aren’t entirely on board with the idea of overthrowing the governmental system oppressing the post-human population, there are those who cringe at the idea of having a purely post-human hierarchy, and then there’s Evie, who only has one qualm with the whole Rogue creed: there are a few nice humans, she’s befriended a good number, and any culling of the fold should be selective, restricted to cutting the fat cats at the head of huge corporations, the legislatures, etc, out of the picture. A full-on genocide is a bit too Nexus for her taste, but the rest of the Rogue ideals generally mesh well with her own. If you aren’t a post-human, you shouldn’t be allowed to make laws directed towards them, that’s her view, and especially not laws forcing them (herself included) to be branded like cattle.
Character Name: Evangeline DawsonAge: 42Ability: Telemetry (Or Electronic Communication, the Heroes wiki calls it Digital Communication but I know James McGinnis’ ability was called Telemetry. Basically what I’m looking at is what Hana Gitelman could do in the original series.)Alliance: RogueFive Personality Traits: Outspoken, Irreverent, Argumentative, Compassionate, IntelligentA quote from your OC: You should at least try to change the world more than the world changes you.Background: Must be from 300-400 words:
There’s a running joke in the 19th Precinct that Detective Dawson will probably show up at her own funeral in order to have the last word after the eulogy, but it would be unwise to laugh along with such a statement within her hearing if you value your safety: her death glares are known to have made an unprepared rookie detective faint. Those who have known her longest swear that she has always been the contrary, stubbornly independent person she is today, but only a few have an inkling as to why. Orphaned at a very young age, she was raised by her domineering paternal grandmother, and rather than wilt under the combined pressure of starting school three thousand miles from her old home and the constant reminders of how much better she had to be to rise above the disappointment and grief that her father had caused, she mimicked the fierce intelligence and determination of the woman who had taken her in. It won her few friends in school, among the pupils or the teachers, but it served her well enough when she entered the police academy not long after she graduated from high school.
Even though she had a falling out with her grandmother for refusing to go to college, Evie found an ally in her cousin Bobby, who had practically lived in the same house when they were kids due to a less than healthy home life, and they kept an eye on each other as they moved through the ranks of the police force. The kidnapping and murder of ten year old Olivia Reyes quickly turned into a media circus, which was difficult enough to handle without the hallucinations that she would later recognize as slowly manifesting telemetry. Perhaps if her younger partner hadn’t been so desperate for advancement he wouldn’t have tried to fix the case, perhaps if she hadn’t been so overwhelmed by handling both the press and her burgeoning ability he wouldn’t have had the chance to, but the fact remained that he had and it was only through calling in all of her favors and the craftiness of her cousin that she kept her badge. After a six month medical leave, she was placed on the major case squad and shuffled out of the way of the limelight, relegated to simple cases and paperwork. The past five years have only fed her resentment, and it was really only a matter of time before it would anger her to the point that revenge on a far wider scale seemed like a very attractive prospect. Luckily, she wasn’t the only one in New York who wanted to see a little blood spilled and the established power structure crumble away, and what’s more, they could use a helping hand or two.
Significant Event in Life: Can be 1 paragraph:
The Reyes case and the fallout in the media that followed it have changed her life and her mindset dramatically, fostering resentment towards the police commissioners and the entire police hierarchy in her heart and fueling her anger towards the widespread unjust treatment of post-humans by the government (and to a lesser extent, by others). Having to claim her ability manifestation was a nervous breakdown and using that to cover up for the mistakes made her younger partner that she had missed trying to grapple with both a complicated case and the beginnings of telemetry disgusted her then and she has only grown angrier about the situation in the years since, especially with how she can see Nexus’ influence bleeding over into the opinions of her colleagues and those who hold power over the justice system.Face Claim: Gina Torres

Para Sample: Must be 2+ paragraphs. :
"Preston. Break room. Now." He had flinched visibly even before she had spoken, that was one strike on her mental list and it made her sink her teeth into her lip despite the hazards of the lipstick she had applied this morning. Her tone had been authoritative (well, bitchy to some lower lifeforms sitting at their desks nearby) enough that mild catcalling erupted in the room, mostly consisting of insinuations that Detective Preston was well whipped by his older female partner, and she had to waste a moment to turn and scowl them out of any further comments before giving his shoulder a gentle shove to thaw him from the spot on the floor that he seemed to have frozen to in the meantime. Perhaps she should be glad that he had such an obviously guilty conscience, it would be easier to screw him over this way, but it still made a faint shiver of pity run down her spine. He was already fiddling with the knot on his tie, glancing at the manila folder held to her chest, several text messages that she didn’t have it in her to scrutinize zipping through the ether to the phone that she knew that he kept in his jacket pocket.
"What the fuck were you thinking, Detective? What in the sweet hell made you think you could get away with something like this?" It was open-ended enough that he could fill in some blanks she was missing, harsh enough that he opened his mouth in protest immediately; though the pause and the twitch in his left eye betrayed him even further as she waited patiently, arms folded to steel herself. Blake Preston had always been a soft touch, the guy next door, that was his schtick in investigation and interrogation with his baby-faced charm, but it seemed to have deserted him entirely as he cleared his throat and tried to piece a response together. "I don’t exactly…what are you talking about, Evie?" Using her personal name, that was a low tactic to pull out of his hat, but she didn’t soften her expression as she slapped the folder down on the table, frowning deeply as she tried to push the haze of speculative text messages going around the squad room from her mind, lest they throw her off her game entirely. "You know, I’d ask you what you think I’m talking about, but I don’t have time to waste on useless horseshit here, Blake." 
She spread the photos across the table with an angry flourish, grateful for the low resolution quality of the camera situated in the far corner of the room so none of the security guards would go running to the brass before she and Bobby had their chance to in a meeting scheduled for twenty minutes from now. The ceiling tiles had more color in them than his face once he caught sight of what she was showing him; it sent a wave of bitter disappointment and fear crashing over any small spark of hope she may have been clinging to and washed it away entirely. A minute passed, Evie thought they both needed a moment to let the gravity of his screw-up sink in, and his breathing began to come in rough near-sobs, though he still hadn’t managed to look her in the eyes. "That’s our star witness, buddy boy. Practically eating your face in front of a bar in West Village. Comforting her I could understand, she did just lose her baby sister, but you didn’t have to comfort her with your tongue. We have rules about that, Detective." If he had looked apt to faint before, he was practically swooning by the time that she pulled out the text messages and phone records that she had compiled into an inch thick printout.
"You might have been able to hold into your badge with just that, the higher ups, they like to overlook that sort of thing for good male detectives. Put you in a different department, brush the whole damned thing over. But you won’t be able to get away with these too." Blake had slumped into one of the scuffed plastic chairs at this revelation, and she sat primly in one herself rather than give the impression to the rest of the squad that Officer Bitch was berating her partner and living up to her reputation. Part of her wanted to back down, to put the act away, drop the facade, but she knew it would come at the cost of her own career as well, and that was too high a price to pay for pity. "Coaching the witness, Blake. How could you?" She let the harshness drop away from her voice, putting up that facade was too exhausting at this point. If her cousin Bobby hadn’t called her into his office last night before she left and offered her this information ahead of time so that he could talk her into saving her own ass by selling this ‘kid’ up the river, where would she be? Morally superior, probably, but out of a job.
He wouldn’t be able to get away with it because she was going to siphon away his chance at career survival for herself, because she was going to have to trade on gender stereotypes and connections within the force to cover up just why she hadn’t been watching him like a hawk throughout the investigation. Bobby had told her that she was going to have to take a few months of medical leave at the very least, to think of it as a vacation, and Evie supposed that she could use one, especially since she still hadn’t gotten a handle on the fact that she could see sexts being sent from the phones of her fellow detectives outside and emails winding their way through the room as she waited for Preston to say something. "I’m sorry, Evie, I’m so sorry." He managed to choke out between half-stifled sobs, shoulders shaking with the effort. "What can I…what can I do? I mean…" It was sickening, how she could feel the conversation click like clockwork towards the end result that she needed to stay afloat. She needed this job, she worked her ass off for eighteen years to get where she was today, that was what she had to keep reminding herself of as she leaned across the table to look her soon to be ex-partner in the eyes. “
You could turn yourself in.” She said quietly, caught between hating herself and a perverse sense of relief at the way things were playing out in her favor. "And hope, there’s always a little of that you can dredge up, okay?" There was a moment of silence while that suggestion sunk in, and he slid his chair back from the table with a defeated scrape. Though honestly she would have rather have dunked herself naked in the East River than stay around him willingly much longer, she made the offer anyway once she’d stood, nodding towards the door. “How about I walk down with you, in solidarity? Maybe that will make it easier.” It wouldn’t, they both knew hat from the way he looked at her when she spoke, but he followed her out of the room anyway, meeker than most sacrifices led to the altar that spelled the end of their term in this godforsaken place. He even managed to give her a watery smile as they neared Bobby’s office, which just added a layer of guilt to be felt later on. Blake might have thought that they were going down together, but once the door closed behind them, he would know just how false that pretense was going to be, in this case. And yet there was a part of her that was glad of it, relieved that it wasn’t her neck on the chopping block, though it should be. Perhaps that was the most shameful part of the whole thing after all, not the betrayal.

Have you read the rules? Yes, ma’am.

There’s a running joke in the 19th Precinct that Detective Dawson will probably show up at her own funeral in order to have the last word after the eulogy, but it would be unwise to laugh along with such a statement within her hearing if you value your safety: her death glares are known to have made an unprepared rookie detective faint. Those who have known her longest swear that she has always been the contrary, stubbornly independent person she is today, but only a few have an inkling as to why. Orphaned at a very young age, she was raised by her domineering paternal grandmother, and rather than wilt under the combined pressure of starting school three thousand miles from her old home and the constant reminders of how much better she had to be to rise above the disappointment and grief that her father had caused, she mimicked the fierce intelligence and determination of the woman who had taken her in. It won her few friends in school, among the pupils or the teachers, but it served her well enough when she entered the police academy not long after she graduated from high school.

Even though she had a falling out with her grandmother for refusing to go to college, Evie found an ally in her cousin Bobby, who had practically lived in the same house when they were kids due to a less than healthy home life, and they kept an eye on each other as they moved through the ranks of the police force. The kidnapping and murder of ten year old Olivia Reyes quickly turned into a media circus, which was difficult enough to handle without the hallucinations that she would later recognize as slowly manifesting telemetry. Perhaps if her younger partner hadn’t been so desperate for advancement he wouldn’t have tried to fix the case, perhaps if she hadn’t been so overwhelmed by handling both the press and her burgeoning ability he wouldn’t have had the chance to, but the fact remained that he had and it was only through calling in all of her favors and the craftiness of her cousin that she kept her badge. After a six month medical leave, she was placed on the major case squad and shuffled out of the way of the limelight, relegated to simple cases and paperwork. The past five years have only fed her resentment, and it was really only a matter of time before it would anger her to the point that revenge on a far wider scale seemed like a very attractive prospect. Luckily, she wasn’t the only one in New York who wanted to see a little blood spilled and the established power structure crumble away, and what’s more, they could use a helping hand or two.

Significant Event in Life: Can be 1 paragraph:

The Reyes case and the fallout in the media that followed it have changed her life and her mindset dramatically, fostering resentment towards the police commissioners and the entire police hierarchy in her heart and fueling her anger towards the widespread unjust treatment of post-humans by the government (and to a lesser extent, by others). Having to claim her ability manifestation was a nervous breakdown and using that to cover up for the mistakes made her younger partner that she had missed trying to grapple with both a complicated case and the beginnings of telemetry disgusted her then and she has only grown angrier about the situation in the years since, especially with how she can see Nexus’ influence bleeding over into the opinions of her colleagues and those who hold power over the justice system.

How do you think your OC will fit into the plot: Hunter is a young human who could easily reach out using social media of the age to rally more support for the PROTECT cause. He is not an idiot and though he isn’t super human he functions at a high brain capacity and has the ability to focus for hours on end on one task until he deems it finished. He’s simply a teen wanting to give his life over to a cause he believes in.
Briefly write about their character’s views on the three factions (PROTECT, Nexus, Rogues): Obviously Hunter admires PROTECT and has wanted to be a part of the organization since day one, even when he was still too young to even understand what was fully happening. They are the god guys to him. Nexus is public enemy number one to Hunter, he despises their hatred of special humans, despises their use of those with abilities and all in all hopes to bring them down. He is somewhat sympathetic towards Rouges, feeling as if they are more lost souls than wrong persay. This thought process is bound to change as he sees how the Rouges handle their warfare.

A quote from your OC: “Twelve hours staring at a computer screen? That’s nothing. Try forty eight hours, babe.”
Background: (300-550 words, 3 paragraphs)
Hunter was born Hunter Carson Chelsey to Pippa Chelsey and Sheriff Bailey Chelsey on a scorching august day. Pippa was born with the ability of Mediumship, she had been an eccentric, wild, powerful beautiful woman who died from her own hand when Hunter was only ten years old. Before the death of his mother Hunter had been enthusiastic, playful, filled to the brim with joy. He was so much like his mother, it came as a surprise to all of them when he was born human, of course his parents loved him regardless. The sheriff struggled for many years with alcoholism after the death of his wife, he avoided Hunter, unable to look at the child who resembled his Pippa. Hunter, not fully understanding what his father was going through acted out. He shouted and cursed and fought at school and was even more raucous at home. As he grew slightly, so did his courage and he poured all his father’s bourbon down the drain and father and son began to rebuild their relationship. Hunter was somewhat damaged from the grief he had experienced at such a young age, he had trouble making friends and though he wasn’t shy he was considered the odd one out. He talked too much and too fast, he could literally get lost in numbers and pages of books for hours on end without realizing he had. Sheriff Chelsey worried for his son as he started high school, when Hunter entered his summer before freshmen year he met someone who would forever be important to him. His father had pushed him to greet the new neighbors and he, being the teenager he was, didn’t want to go. But after bribing from his dad, he agreed, and lo and behold, he met his platonic soul mate. His best friend, Ginger, was the coolest girl he had ever met! She could kick his butt at just about any sport and video game, and he seemed to have met his match in a game of wits as well. She and her family had moved to his town because it was one that respected and accepted post-humans. Hunter grew angry at her stories of towns they had lived in previously, some had only pranked her and her family, while others went as far as burning their home to the ground. The day he met Ginger, Hunter promised he would make it so no post-human had to fear for their lives the way Ginger had. Hunter and Ginger have kept in touch in the year since their graduation, though she refuses to come to New York. Hunter understood of course, but he has spent the last five years of his life grooming himself to be good enough at his research to join the PROTECT agency. He had watched the news the day the girl jumped from the Ferris wheel, the day one girl changed everything. Sheriff Chelsey wasn’t exactly thrilled about his only son’s career choice, but he couldn’t help but feel the swell of pride. Hunter was going to be one of the one’s to make a difference in this world, just like his mother had.
Significant Event in Life: (Min. 150 words)
Hunter was only twelve years old when Claire the cheerleader threw herself from the Ferris wheel on that fateful night. Of course he had known specials had existed, as had his mother and father. But only two short years after his mother’s suicide it hit home with young Hunter. The sheer bravery he saw in that girl was something he admired so, something he promised to model himself after. And he did, that was the catalyst that sent him to his father’s liquor cabinet, what made him pour all that foul liquid down the drain and begin repairing his relationship with his father. He began working harder in school, determined he needed to be the best human he could be if he was going to help post-humans. He became involved with as many Post-Human Activist groups he could find online and in the real world. It also lit the passion to help those like Claire, and his mother and Ginger, just because he wasn’t like them didn’t mean he couldn’t be influential.

"Fuck it all, Ging, d’you really have to just show up? Ever heard of knocking?" Why did he even bother, honestly, she had the key to his front door. But even as he joked, he could feel her emotions swirling in the air, she was pissed and hurt and there was definitely tears on her face. It made Hunter’s chest ache. "-You’re leaving today, Hunt? You didn’t tell anyone." He voice broke from it’s spot in the doorway and fuck, if that didn’t make him feel guilty he didn’t know what ever would. Finally deciding to get out of his chair, he rose slowly, and pulled his truest friend into his arms. "Ging, we all knew this was coming, that this was my plan since I met you years ago."It wasn’t easy for him either, to leave his hometown and his father and his best friend and his mother too. He could feel her blunt fingers clutching his back, and it brought him back to when they were little, when they would have their own nightmares. “You could have told me today though, I could have helped you pack at least.” She laughed, though it sounded watery to Hunter’s ears. His room was a wreck, boxes piled on the bed, trash bags of clothes and a half assembled computer desk sitting in the corner. “I’m almost finished anyway,” He gave his own shuddery sigh. “I was going to call you, but I couldn’t find the right words, and you know how I am. It’s easy for me to get caught up in something.” He shrugged, a sad smile on his face. Truth be told, he wasn’t sure he could handle the goodbye and he didn’t want her tears to hinder him from his goals. "My flight leaves at seven tonight, wanna get thai food before I move to New York and become too poor to ever eat again?" He smirked, burying his face in her wild black curls. He laugh was high pitched and bell-like to his ears this time, and he wasn’t going to take a second of their time together for granted. After all, she helped to inspire the Hunter Chelsey that stood proud and confident today.

Although I am still debating whether this will be a mandatory requirement or not, I’ll put the idea out there anyway for those who are looking to pick up new characters in addition to the one/s they already have. If you are wanting to have a second, third, or fourth character, it is strongly suggested that this character be diverse in some aspect in comparison to your prior character/s. 
By diverse, I mean diverse in respect to race, romantic/sexual orientation, gender, handicaps. I realize that asking this from all of you is asking you to take a step outside of your comfort zones, but we’re all here to lend each other support and help to each other. Some people have already excelled in this realm but as a whole, we can all work to help diversify the RPG more.
For right now, I just want to ask everybody to please keep this in mind if they are going to make a new character. Of course, the character development itself will still be a main priority but representation matters as well and shouldn’t be ignored.

Hello! Just letting you know I'll be away on a canoe trip until Saturday but I'll be back then! :)

Thanks for letting me know! have lots of fun!!

This is a general reminder for everyone to please reply to everybody who their starters and to not build biases towards who they reply to and who they don’t reply to. Dropping threads is a normal occurrence but remember to be considerate of others and to keep communication lines open so nobody feels like they’re being ignored.

If someone was interested in roleplaying as Niki, would it be okay for them to do so? Or would you guys prefer her to stay dead?
Anonymous

In regards to the show’s events, we would prefer to stay as true to them as possible. Having to rework everything to bring the character back would take away the significance and value of the effects a certain character’s death had on others to some extent. We would still love to have you in the RPG as any other character though!

“If you don’t adapt to this new world, you might not survive it.”
Background:
Thomas grew up in an abusive household, with two older sisters. Feeling powerless, all Thomas wanted to do was fight back and defend his sisters. After high school he joined the army where at the age of 19, he was sent out on his first tour. However, things went south for the men over there. Thomas and a few of his fellow soldiers were stranded there for weeks in enemy territory. It was there when he tried reaching for food that seemed to be out of reach, his arms expanded. Thomas was confused and for a moment considered it an hallucination. But, he soon found that his arms were not the only thing that could expand to an immense range. He could dodge easier, reach things, take bigger steps and endure hits and even bites.
When he got back, he married his high school sweetheart Jessica Harmon. He never told her about his weird experiences during his tour, he’d rather keep it a secret. Unfortunately, things started to tense up between him and his wife. The unspoken end was confirmed by Thomas cheating on her. The two couldn’t work it out anymore and decided to divorce, even though she was pregnant. After his actions and filing the divorce, he quit the army due to lack of an honorable feeling to serve his country. Instead he used his saved up money to attend college and learn about himself, his powers and the interesting elements and mechanics of the earth, on which he had learned a lot already during his tour-gone-wrong. Thom decided to start teaching geography at a high school in New York City, and later adding the title ‘coach of the football team’ to his name as well.
After years of teaching kids and training his ability. Eventually PROTECT (back then ‘the rebels’) tracked him down and recruited him. He was to help them out in situations where his power or expertise was useful, but his main objective was to seek out the young post-humans at the school who came into their powers. He was to find them, guide them, teach them, help them and tell PROTECT all about them, so they could keep an eye on the fresh post-humans to track them and protect them from other interested parties. In exchange, PROTECT helped him train, grow and equipped him to the best of their ability.

Significant Event in Life:
Thom came home from military training, his wife, Jessica upset. Her belly was beginning to show, and for a moment he pitied the little creature in there, that he had to deal with her paranoia all day long, everyday. He snapped out of his thought and felt guilty right away. “What’s wrong, honey?” He asked his upset wife. It was then that she exploded. “Do you think that I don’t fucking know what you did?!” She nearly screamed, tears running over her face. “You slept with that slut, didn’t you?” She accused him of something so terrible, that he got mad her. But the truth was, he did sleep with the woman she was talking about. It was a dark moment, after yet another fight that he gave in into one of the biggest sins. He opened his mouth, but no words came out. He was exhausted and tired of fighting. Things went blurry from there, he could see her scream, probably accusing him, but he couldn’t hear her, he couldn’t talk. He gave in, he gave up and that moment Thom turned around and walked out on her.
