Your OOC Name/Age: Hillary, 22
Time Zone: EST
How 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):
Character Name: Evangeline Dawson
Ability: 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.)
Five Personality Traits: Outspoken, Irreverent, Argumentative, Compassionate, Intelligent
A 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.

Your OOC Name/Age: Eleni 22
Time Zone: EST
Activity: (briefly describe) Mostly nights and weekends.
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.
Character Name: Hunter Chelsey
Five Personality Traits:
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.

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.

PS: Information for our next event will be posted later this week
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.

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!

Name:Thomas Franklin Bradley
“If you don’t adapt to this new world, you might not survive it.”
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.
