Black Tie Banquet
Date:
(in canon) August 1st, 2016
(OOC) Suggested Days: July 31st - August 2nd
Location: New York City, NY
Occasion: In order to celebrate the rebuilding of the Nexus Headquarters and welcome the new corporate transfers from Florida, Nexus has arranged a huge formal get together. A number VIP invites have been sent out to a few big corporate names and PROTECT members. The event is open to anybody who would like the chance to directly talk to the Nexus executives as well as big names from other businesses. Showing up for the free food and drinks is completely okay as well.
Event type: Dashboard event
There will be no set pairings for this event or individual prompts because this is a more “casual” event but it will not take place in a chat room like before. Instead, gif threads will be permitted and encouraged (much like the AU anniversary event) because we still want to simulate the experience of a social event.
If you worry about having your introverted characters being in a social setting, check out these tips for getting your characters involved without breaking character.

Your OOC Name and Age: Daire, and sixteen.Time Zone: GMT.Character you’re applying for: Victor Drake.Why do you want this character?: I really like the prospect of playing a wounded character, one who has scar tissue on their history, and Victor’s biography stands out in that sense, with the tragedy of his mother’s death and the abandonment of his parents. Delving into a personality that is complex and profound is more than intriguing and, although I may not do him justice, I don’t think I could get bored of exploring him!Activity: (brief description) Generally 6/10, but that may (probably will) drop a little in September.Have you read the rules?: Yep!Describe the desired character’s personality/motivations (50-100 words): Victor is a quiet man, he prefers solitude to accompaniment without being outwardly cold to others. He is poised, awaiting the opportunity that consumes much of his thoughts: the vengeance of his mother’s death. His reluctance to take part in any movement for or against post-humans was shattered on that day in Central Park, and now it’s a big part of who he is. Though he has always been approachable, not necessarily unpleasant, he is guarded, unwilling to put himself on display in any sense. The only people he has ever felt love towards are his adoptive parents, although he often wonders about his birth family, whether or not he’d love them just as much. These thoughts, however, haven’t become impulses, and remain a semi-consistent itch at the back of his mind. His view of the world is tainted with a negative filter, but his vision is clear and he knows what he wants.Would you like to change the FC?: Nope! Guy Pearce is great. 
[[MORE]]Para Sample: (min. 300 words)
The ground shook below Victor’s feet as the air around him became increasingly more dense with angry voices atop of angrier voices. His head was spinning. The park was getting chaotic and this definitely was no longer safe. Once he found his equilibrium, he moved fast.
"Let’s go, come on!" He reached behind him and grasped for his mother’s  hand, shot his dad an urgent look, and started to run.
He wished he could say that he was surprised. He knew, knew it, that the small spat would spiral and blow up as he side eyed the opposers just ten minutes before.
"We’ve got to get out of here fast. You have no idea what lengths these people are willing—"
And then it happened. His mother’s  grip went slack in his palm. He whipped around obliviously and watched, stricken, as her body fell, limp and severed.
"No."
His blood ran cold.
"No."
An enraged scream bubbled up in his throat but didn’t make it past his lips, even as people roared and pushed and shoved on every side around him. When he finally managed to tear his gaze from the grotesque image at his feet, he found a pair of piercing green eyes staring at him. The look was anticipating and unapologetic. And before he could even think to react, they were gone again.
He slid his gaze to his father instead and that was his undoing. The look on his dad’s face was enough incentive for the wall of resistance inside him to crumble.
"Dad, get up." His father remained on his knees, doubled over, shaking.
"Get up."
"Dad, please. Dad, we’ve got to move her—Dad, get up, please. Get up. Get up!" He shoved at the older man’s shoulders but it was futile. There were too many people. There was too much movement. They had to leave her— he couldn’t leave her. But they had no choice. He couldn’t even see where her head—…
"Wake up, son. Get up."
Like breaking the surface of a cold, cruel, writhing ocean, Victor gasped loudly into the quiet of his childhood bedroom. Sweat moons glistened in the silver light pouring through the window as his hair lay flat, damp against his skin.
"The same?"
He wiped at his brow with the back of his hand and watched his father take a few steps closer. Victor nodded, face slick with rapidly-drying tears.
"The same."
His father tossed him a towel. “I’ll get you a drink.”
~
Victor nudged his glass forward with the backs of his fingers and watched as the golden liquid swirled, sloshed and gathered as it poured. “Thanks,” he murmured, no louder than a whisper.
His father capped the bottle and reclined back in his easy armchair, levelling Victor with an uneasy look. “You’re still angry.”
"And you’re not."
The older man sighed. “It’s no good, Victor. I keep trying to tell you. There’s nothing you can do without getting yourself killed. And you know that it was an accident—”
"Didn’t make any difference to them who it was they murdered for their cause,” he snapped.
His father looked down at that, shook his head, poured himself a drink. There was a pause. And then, “No. No, it didn’t.”

Name: Luna Saito
Age: 36
Ability: Accelerated Probability
The ability to see the immediate possible outcomes of every choice before the event actually takes place. When utilizing this ability, users can see paths projected in front of them, illuminating possible courses of action.
Limits: The ability doesn’t allow the user to see the long term outcomes and effects. Users are limited to seeing just the immediate outcome. 
Nexus
Suggested Personality Traits:
Cautious
Direct
Paranoid
Meticulous
Focused
Background:
Luna was a very cautious child, always wanting to play it safe and smart. Even small risks required a great deal of calculation and effort to push herself out of her comfort zone.
She landed her first real job in Yamagato Industries which was owned by, her best friend, Kimiko Nakamura’s father named Kaito. Impressed by Luna’s marketing strategies and ideas, Kaito started mentoring her so she could help carry the company when his son takes over. 
Kaito became like a father figure to Luna and when he passed away she couldn’t bring herself to go back to her old job. Instead she packed up and moved to America.
During her search for a job, she stumbled onto a new budding corporation called Nexus and applied due to a strong “gut instinct”. In time, Luna became the director of Nexus’ marketing research and was given the opportunity to transfer to the New York branch.
Ever since she joined Nexus, she completely bought into the company’s cause to help preserve the human race and finding a cure for the post-humans. The fact that she is a post-human is still unknown to everybody but herself since she’s ultimately too scared to admit it to anybody.

Name: Nicky Rogers
Age: 28
Ability: Lie Detection
The ability to sense when the user is lied to through a weak form of enhanced vision where they can see minute physical body ticks, such as twitching fingers or an increase in blinking.
Limits: Users may not differentiate between a white lie or a secret. Power can be subconsciously blocked when around someone the person trusts. Say a best friend or a family member.
PROTECT
Suggested Personality Traits:
Withdrawn
Conscientious

Insightful
Dedicated 
Background:
Nicky’s parents were always taken back by her ability to call them out on every lie they told no matter how small or seemingly harmless they were. When asked how she knew they were lying, she replied, “It’s all in the face,” which gave her parents the impression that she could read body language really well.
There was a long period where she kept isolating herself from others. She simply didn’t trust them because of the lies they’ve told.
In school she took a great interest in behavior analysis in Psychology since it helped her gain a deeper understanding of why people acted the way the did and in turn allowed her to learn how to deal with interacting with others better.
Nicky’s best friend, Francis Oliver, revealed that he had special abilities when he joined PROTECT and told her that he suspected she was like him too. It took a bit of persuading, but Nicky decided to humor Francis and visit PROTECT to see if she really did possess an ability.
After finding out she was a Post-Human, she figured it was best to stick around to find out more about her abilities, but in time Francis offered to recommend her to PROTECT since there were so many positions open. Due to her remarkable ability and background in applied psychology, she ended up working with the interrogation and profiling division.

”I will find justice for my family. I don't care who I have to go through.”
Background:
Andres’ parents always spoke highly of the family legacy in the Spanish Armed Forces. Unlike his other friends who dreaded the compulsory military service, he looked forward to joining when he reached 18. Ever since he was young, he had big aspirations to serve his country and carry on the legacy so he could make his parents and little brother proud. When the time came, he couldn’t be happier to finally get the chance to make a name for himself. He worked hard while he served his term. His sights were set on moving up in the ranks and although his progress was slow, he reached his goal eventually. 
The military was not the institution of integrity as he hoped though. Drug cartels had owned the area near where he was stationed. His infantry section was already affiliated with the drug cartels, taking the cartel’s bribes so that they can turn the other way while the drugs were distributed. When he learned that the cartel members crossed a line and innocent people were being attacked if they didn’t comply to the cartels’ demands, he decided to take action and go after the drug ring’s boss by himself. With his training and skills such a task was easy for him, but sadly the trail was easily traced back to him and landed him a spot in prison. Due to the influence of the cartel, Andres’ life soon became a living hell after the former cartel prison inmates were ordered to make Andres’ time in there as difficult as possible.
While in prison, news of his closest relatives being killed made their way to Andres. Their deaths served as payback for what he did to the cartel’s leader. Though he’s never had too much of a problem with the cartel messing with him, but since they crossed a line by going after his family, Andres hardened and became obsessed with finding the culprits. When Andres was released from prison he immediately called in as many favors as he could from people who still believed in him rather than the false slanders to help him get back on his feet. Since then he had been following every lead he could find in regarding his family even the most absurd ones like a rumor of his niece Moria Ayres being spotted in New York City. 
Significant Event in Life:
Andres never knew his sister-in-law had a special ability of her own. When he began looking deeper into his family’s case, one that was suspiciously discarded by the judges, he triggered a couple of silent alarms that Nexus laid out in case someone tried to investigate them. Two agents were sent out to capture him since he refused to stop seeking out the truth about what happened to his family. That was his first encounter with a post-human. The sight of somebody controlling water with just their hands shocked him so much that he couldn’t put up much of a fight. He barely made it out of that encounter alive and has lying low and hiding from the Nexus ever since.

Name: Victor Drake (born as Conrad Drescher)

“I wish it wasn’t so, but people will always leap at the promise of power and glory if they’re given it—greed will always win in the end, so it’s up to us to eliminate those opportunities before that can happen.”
Background:
Born in Germany to Ingrid and Ralph Drescher as Conrad Drescher, Victor’s childhood had never been ordinary. When his parents discovered his abilities as he hovered about the kitchen, puffing smoke and hiccupping flames, half his hand covered in scales from where he placed it over his mouth to prevent the flames from travelling anywhere, they immediately knew they were in over their heads. At six months of age, Victor was placed on the steps of an orphanage a few towns over from where he was born along with a single note that explained his “abnormalities,” as his parents put it, but nothing else.
Luckily, three years later, the young post-human was adopted by a travelling couple, the Drakes; they were fascinated by his abilities, named him Victor and promptly returned to their farm home in England. He grew up in the loving household, helping out around the grounds and using his abilities to his advantage in order to ward off any predators that wished to feast upon their livestock. Though it was a strong bond between him and his parents, the pay of a farmer was not great, and the family lived in poverty for quite a while; any money that wasn’t used towards funding absolute necessities was scraped together to be able to send Victor to school and pay for the fees.
After becoming an adult and graduating school, Victor and his parents realized that they wanted more out of life—they wanted to live as opposed to just survive. Once they sold their farm and the little crops and livestock still alive, they moved to the United States in order to pursue the fabled American Dream. There, Victor became aware of all the other post-humans in existence and was awed at the various abilities and skill sets, as well as intrigued by the factions in the war. Originally, he had no intentions of pledging allegiance to any of them, but when his mother was killed by a Rogue, he immediately sought out Nexus, not wanting to allow an organization—even further, a species—so cruel to triumph.
Despite his tight bond with his adoptive family, Victor still often wonders about his birth parents, where they are and whether or not they finally got to have the “normal” baby they’d always wanted; he still doesn’t know of his brother Ernst Drescher, nor does Ernst know of him.
Significant Event in Life:
When he was 35, Victor met up with his parents to go for a nice evening stroll in Central Park. The event was rather pleasant at first, but a small brawl that started between a post-human and someone who’d discriminated against them rapidly drew attention excelling in severity. Other post-humans joined in to aid their kind; some humans joined the side of the other. What started as a measly spat quickly turned into a full-out riot; some post-humans had called in backup, and the new post-human organization referred to as the Rogues quickly made their presence in the park known, crying shouts for equality though their actions were violent past what was necessary to bring the chaos to a halt. Victor tried his best to get out of the heart of the mess and escort his parents to safety, but when a Rogue unintentionally sliced off his mother’s head in an attempt to reach someone behind her—sliced it off right before his and his father’s eyes—Victor knew there was no possible way to remain neutral in the matter; her death would not go unavenged.

“It’s one thing to discuss how you’d change the world; it’s another thing to actually try.”
Background:
Rafe Hewitt, born in Birmingham under the name “Lyall Curtis,” has always been a bit of an unpredictable fellow. As a child, he loved playing piano and composing his own music. Both parents were extremely supportive of his interests, always telling him that they didn’t care what he believed in as long as he did so passionately. They embraced Rafe’s abilities, which they discovered while playing tag in the backyard and watching Rafe’s arm, then entire body disappear into thin air—though they warned him to be careful with whom he revealed them to. In school, he soared above and beyond others, and his parents expected him to move on to pursue his thirst for music when he was accepted to the University of York. He surprised them, however, by enrolling in the Electronic and Communication Engineering program.
A year into his studies, Rafe was devastated when his father passed away due to a sudden heart attack. His mother refused his continual offers to return home to help support her through the tough time, insisting that he would have wanted Rafe to succeed. Rafe reluctantly continued his program, but when Rafe’s mother committed suicide by hanging herself about a year after his father had passed away, he fell into a period of deep depression. It took the efforts of his concerned professors and a couple visits to therapy to pull his act together and get back on track. After graduating at 22 (with a 2:1 MEng in his program), he moved to London with his girlfriend at the time, though that relationship ended shortly after when Rafe joined the British Secret Service.
Becoming part of the MI6 team was not something he planned. He applied on the off chance that they might find his degree helpful and was shocked when, nine long months of intensive background checks and interviews, he was offered a job as an intelligence officer. Slowly but surely, he climbed up the ranks until he was able to travel back and forth between the US and England, serving as an information deliverer between the agents stationed in America and those back at Headquarters. His ability made him one of the most skilled officers, though he avoided telling anyone in the Service of it. During his time in the States, he learned of the post-human war waging among the three factions and what each stood for; as time passed on, he realized he neededto be a part of it. This was a cause worth fighting for, the equality of post-humans, and he was sick of observing from the sidelines. Regardless of what it took, he wouldbecome a part of PROTECT—and that’s exactly what he did.
Significant Event in Life:
In order to become a part of PROTECT and fight for an issue he had quickly become passionate about, Rafe had to sever his ties with MI6. This was not an easy task, and it took deep thought and no small amount of risk to complete it. After a full decade of service, Rafe resigned and immediately packed a few necessary items, flew to Chicago and then purchased a cheap but reliable used car to drive the rest of the way to New York City. He required a new identity in order to scale under the radar; if the Service found out he was joining an American government organization, then there would be a target on his back no matter where he went. Luckily, when he met with Peter Petrelli, explained his situation, and displayed his ability, Peter welcomed him with open arms and agreed to allow Rafe to join them in the reconnaissance department in return for his loyalty; with Peter’s help, Lyall Curtis died and Rafe Hewitt was born. Rafe knows how much PROTECT is risking by having a defector in their employ, so he is forever in debt to both the organization and Peter.

Background:

Rafe Hewitt, born in Birmingham under the name “Lyall Curtis,” has always been a bit of an unpredictable fellow. As a child, he loved playing piano and composing his own music. Both parents were extremely supportive of his interests, always telling him that they didn’t care what he believed in as long as he did so passionately. They embraced Rafe’s abilities, which they discovered while playing tag in the backyard and watching Rafe’s arm, then entire body disappear into thin air—though they warned him to be careful with whom he revealed them to. In school, he soared above and beyond others, and his parents expected him to move on to pursue his thirst for music when he was accepted to the University of York. He surprised them, however, by enrolling in the Electronic and Communication Engineering program.

A year into his studies, Rafe was devastated when his father passed away due to a sudden heart attack. His mother refused his continual offers to return home to help support her through the tough time, insisting that he would have wanted Rafe to succeed. Rafe reluctantly continued his program, but when Rafe’s mother committed suicide by hanging herself about a year after his father had passed away, he fell into a period of deep depression. It took the efforts of his concerned professors and a couple visits to therapy to pull his act together and get back on track. After graduating at 22 (with a 2:1 MEng in his program), he moved to London with his girlfriend at the time, though that relationship ended shortly after when Rafe joined the British Secret Service.

Becoming part of the MI6 team was not something he planned. He applied on the off chance that they might find his degree helpful and was shocked when, nine long months of intensive background checks and interviews, he was offered a job as an intelligence officer. Slowly but surely, he climbed up the ranks until he was able to travel back and forth between the US and England, serving as an information deliverer between the agents stationed in America and those back at Headquarters.

Character Biography Formats
From now on in addition to the full bios, we will also have the newer bios written in the skeleton bio format. After two years of writing bios in full, I realize completely switching to a new format would seem too sudden and would work against us since we have so many premade bios written in the older style. So instead of solely using one format over another, Heroes RPG will use both formats. 
The reason for the addition of skeleton bios is so there will be more emphasis placed on the player’s interpretation of the premade character. With both full bios and skeleton bios, they are just there as a foundation to base your interpretations on. I understand that full bios can feel a bit restricting to some people, so I figured having another option might help some people out. 
The new format for skeleton bios are as followed.

Applicants will be asked to choose a quote that fits the character and a significant event in the application. The audition/application page is also going under a revamp to fit the new application form for the skeleton bios. Edit: For skeleton bios, when you apply you will write a full, detailed background using the bullet points you were given.
Although the skeleton bios are considerably shorter than the full bios, they will still be crafted and written with the same amount of consideration and thought as the full bios. The only difference is that the players will be able to have more input in the character rather than have all of the responsibility placed on the admin.
Also to help with organizing the two different bio formats, I will start tagging bios with either #full bio or #skeleton bio. 
If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to ask me!
