Name: Richard Hawkins
Mutant Name: Tracker
Physical Mutations: If you were to pass Rich on your stroll to the local Coffee shop, you might think to yourself that he was just a regular guy. Might want to give him your number, maybe just start a conversation. That feeling would fade though if he lost sight of his senses. When Richard would channel his ability into a certain sense, the body part most associated with it would begin to look inflamed. Veins would pop as the blood through his body would rush. At this point, you would probably begin to understand how irregular he really was.
Powers: Enhanced Senses - The user has extremely accurate senses, allowing them to see, hear, smell, taste, and/or touch more than an average member of their species.
Sight- At this current moment, he can focus in to see approximately 150 meters away.
Sound- Once he locks on to a certain noise, that is within 50 meters, he can begin to formulate an origin of the noise in question and make it the more pronounced for his ears to understand.
Taste- When given an item to consume he can decipher every ingredient that went into the production of said item (let me know if this is to much or if you have any other ideas to add to it)
Touch- Upon channeling his ability into his bare feet or hands, Richard can feel the ground to help isolate the origin of movement within 50 meters of anything from a vehicle to a group of deer. He still has trouble finding those that are being very cautious but that doesn't stop him from working on it.
Drawbacks: Over stimulation to his senses can obviously be a threat to him without focus. An easy out he has found to help numb these senses was at the bottom of many bottles. Alcohol is a dangerous game but Richard plays it hard, and with little sign of stopping for his own sanity's sake.
Personality: The man has become cold and numb over his servitude. Merely a tool to be used by his owners in any way, shape, or form they can think of.
Short Bio: Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana on March 7th, 1987 he was thrust into a family of workers. His father, Leonard Hawkins, ran a small security company while his mother had, regretfully, passed away a few years after his birth. Being a single father wanting to give the world to his child, Leonard's energy would be run very thin. As Richard grew up in a world of a busy father he would normally be left to learn for himself. This did not bode well once he hit 13 and began to develop strange feelings that seemed to rock his body at every chance they could. Not only would puberty be the worry of a young teen but having to hear the constant strife of others around him tore at his psyche. Hoping his father could answer these mysteries, Richard would badger him constantly with questions of why this was happening to him? Thankfully, Leonard was somewhat of an understanding man. Knowing the world did not just have humans but those "enhanced" with special gifts, he began to search out institutes to take his child and harbor him away from a misguided generation. Every great person however, has their own limit.
Leonard would begin to become desperate to find such a safe place for his son. It wouldn't be long before he happened to stumble upon some, not so kind, samaritan's. A local Mafioso group, known simply as the La'Roux family
, would approach Leonard about this issue. They let him know that they would kindly take the boy off his hands as long as he signed a contract of ownership to them. Leonard, slowly understanding he had made a grave mistake, attempted to politely decline and forget the whole thing ever happened. However, the Don's son Daren La'Roux, had other plans for the man. Wanting a mutant to be on his side they pulled a gun on the old security guard. With a few blasts resonating down one of the side alley's of Royal street, followed by a sudden thud, Leonard was no longer with this world. It wouldn't take long for them to track down young Richard and tell him the story of his father's demise. This story would be a falsified one though. A story told of how these "samaritans" saw the whole incident go down between his father and some local thugs that would ultimately end up in an untimely death of Leonard. Richard, not knowing what to do or how to feel, would easily follow Darren back to his new home at the La'Roux estate off the Mississippi River. Now, at the mature age of 30, Richard still uses his gifts to help track down anything for the La'Roux family. Those things can range from local game in the wild to the most dangerous game in the city.
Possessions: At the age of 9, his father gave him a necklace that once belonged to his mother. A pendant of Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers. To let his son know that whatever path he so chose to walk in life, that someone would always be watching him every step of the way.
