I didn't go with dulled senses because that's far too easy to make into a strength. It basically makes my character invincible- doesn't feel pain and regenerates any harm. It's much more interesting to go with the opposite.

Not feeling pain does not equal unharmed. He could suffer huge internal damage before he would start healing. And some things don't heal- brain cells, immune deficiencies...

Perhaps weakening his immune system to the point that he's almost constantly sick?

Well get writing those sheets, Lonestar.

Neither of those is what I want to write, though. I like the idea of a big, beefy guy who is hard to kill or even hurt, but that is absolutely terrified of pain because of how sensitive he is to it. Lack of awareness of injuries+healing from injuries=massive badass, and it's the formula for every superhero gary stu that doesn't want to be "just another superman". "You can hurt him!" they say "He just doesn't notice, and also heals it really quickly!"

And for the weakened immune system, if food doesn't come up then disease comes up less often. Mostly because most illnesses(especially in the cases of weakened immune systems- see aids) are debilitating, even if only in the short term, and making a character ill means making them not just "less effective" but "incapable of doing anything interesting".

Also, as a rule of thumb if he has a serious brain injury I'd probably point to it as him dying.

And immune deficiencies do heal- that's what bone marrow is for.

As an aside, some of the brain cells retain the ability to divide even after adulthood, just not most of them. In a character with extreme regeneration, this would likely mean brain damage would be negligible and heal on its own.

Really? that's fascinating, I didn't know that. I guess it makes sense, but still- very interesting!

I think I want a farm boy. Someone who would probably obsess with May and how sexy of a car she is.

goood... gooooood...

Now I just need to finish the character, turn him into a sheet of paper, then tie him to a fence using barbed wire and I'm ready to start.

It's okay, you want to talk sexy to me but you want to be subtle about it. It's cool...just let out your feelings with the car.

Shade, don't make fun of him, it's not his fault. We both know your swag is so great even straight men want a piece of you.

Also, he's more like Big Mac.

Oh man, 70s/80s...fun fun fun.

Lurking, for now, as I can't think for the life of me of a new character...they'll most likely be African-American.

Now I'm done with my sheet, thanks to Joural, Ji and those other guys who contributed their ideas for his power. Now uh, I don't know too much about the 60's/70's era so don't yell at me.



Lord_Lonestar wrote:
Name: Skylar Vin Barnett (or known as Sky)
Age: 17
Appearance: The first thing evident about Skylar is his large size. Ahem. He's around 6'1 with a very wide frame, yes he's on the fat side, he has a big round belly like Santa Claus. Anyway he's not the most attractive person on the planet to begin with standing a bit on the ugly side, most would say that he's funny looking in the facial area. Oh yeah uh... he's Caucasian/American with very healthy looking whitey skin aside from the stretch marks from being overweight, the scars from child-hood incidents and etc. His hair is a dirty blonde color, mid-length almost to his ears. He sports small beady brown eyes, which most have said that it looks out of place with the rest of his body.

Time for the part where I was working on for the longest: his clothing. Aforementioned I'm not an expert in the 70's/60's, neither am I a expert on their clothing so this will be short and simple since he was originally going to have a enormous blue hoodie. Yeah, he wears a very tight denim jacket which is a few sizes too small and has rips, tears and dirt all over it. The most noticeable part of his jacket is the right sleeve has seemingly exploded from the inside out. And your generic run of the mill jeans. He also wears a pair of shoes, that's it.


Oh yeah, he's always wearing a small green back pack where he keeps all of his supplies.

Started in: Philadelphia (Insert Fresh Prince Theme song)

Power: Skylar power is hm... Animal Genetics, or Animal Assimilation. Whatever floats your boat. To elaborate whenever Skylar touches any animal (no matter the class, or even species) he'll become a hybrid of said animal. Say if he touches a cat, then he'll get the characteristics of a cat. Fur, claws, fangs, cat eyes. Nothing too extreme, he sure as fuck won't become a full-on furry, he'll just get a few minor changes to his being. The animal won't survive the process, and usually he'll get the transformation for like a hour.


In addition he'll get the abilities of said animal in the case of a cat he'll get cat-like reflexes and hearing, if he assimilates a fish he'll get underwater breathing, bird his arms will turn into wings, his bones will get really light and he'll have the ability to fly... and so on. Though, in some cases he may get the weaknesses of said animal.


Now, while he may have an immensely versatile and powerful ability it comes at, say, a cost. You see animals have different chemicals, Skylar may not know it but it's highly addicting. So to save myself from rambling; whenever Skylar isn't in animal form he goes through his own form of withdrawals. Symptoms include; paranoia, exhaustion, mood swings, irritability, etc. Now I have to say I don't know too much about withdrawals myself, so I'm just pulling stuff out my ass. So excuse any uh withdrawal errors. Speaking of which Skylar doesn't even know he's addicted to his powers so he basically thinks this is the way he is normally. So I hope this is a acceptable drawback.


Uhhh these transformations are really painful.

Bio: Could I skip this? Pleeeeeeeez? I'm shit at bios, and we didn't have them on Break :3

Personality: Skylar is, how I would say; a two sided coin. When he's not going through withdrawals (I.E: When he's in animal form or recently were) he's cool, calm and at times arrogant. While he is a bit on the dumb-side -occasionally impulsive and rarely thinking many of his choices throug- he makes up for it in enthusiasm, and determination as long as he lives he will never give up on anything, not even if it's a lost cause... to near suicidal levels. Though, in most of his choices he'll always put himself, or his friends first.


When he is going through withdrawals... well... he's basically going to be a dick. He has a unreasonable distrust of everyone in this form thinking everyone's against him, or will be so uninterested that he won't even doing anything sometimes, which is very bad seeing that there's people that want to kill him. And the only thing he'll worry about is to... uhh abridged: wait out his withdrawal.

Equipment: What would I take when people are out to murk me...? I would take my... JOURNAL. Then some food. He has like three green apples in his backpack, and one banana. He also has a black 4 inch long switch blade received from his father. So yeah he doesn't have too much with him given his age.

Make transformations agonizingly painful considering the extreme changes to his body, and we're good. :3

Now I gots to work on my sheets...

Cynder, I like how you think. Double persecution all around.

I think next sheet, I'm gonna lock down our start zones to LA, Philly, some small town Tennessee (for one of my characters) and wherever else that last person makes his choice.

Heeeeeey I'd like to get your opinion on this power!



Be it from some fluke of molecular mesh or cell behavior, Mona is essentially an earthquake machine. Little more than slight, carefully planned movements from her are capable of stimulating remarkable tremors in the immediate environment. The effect is, unfortunately, impossible to regulate. Mona has learned to resist the vibrations that course through her nearly continuously, though her hands seem to always have a slight jitter to them.

When Mona speaks in her adopted, rasping whisper, one might detect a distinct rumbling, as if of an approaching thunderstorm. Louder intonations are capable of causing more severe disturbances. A clap might disorient momentarily, a stomp might throw off-balance, a standing jump could endanger the building.

This activity , of course, comes at a price to Mona. Having lived with the disorder for the majority of her life, her body has attempted to accommodate it, and was successful only in that she has not yet shaken herself to pieces (And has aquired near-gyroscopic balance). Mona is near deaf from the grievous havoc her ability presented in her youth; every trip, accidental bump, or involuntary shout of surprise was a veritable thunderclap that gave her ears no shortage of stress. It is a wonder of architecture that her childhood home is still standing. The exact peak intensity of Mona’s ability has yet to be measured, as she has never been willing to let herself go when around others. As expected, Mona is quite prone to nausea – a particularly powerful jarring will in all likelihood leave her heaving on the ground.



I can, if needs be, decrease the power's strength, increase her incapacitation to nausea, lessen her balancing skills, or something else. >u<;

I've been liking that place a lot less, recently...

Agreed. I'm thinking I might quit Chromosome, it's just mind-numbingly irritating now.
