Saw this existed, read into it, found myself hooked.

Before I make a sheet, would a technopath be accepted? If not, would a person with a mutation that made them smarter be accepted? Asking since I could revamp a character of mine who never got far off the ground due to the thread not starting. Thanks in advance, I'll be joining the Discord soon!

@DocRock Hey, hey. Technopath is fine if you want to go that route. We have no one of those. Join the Discord, if you haven't already, and enter the madness.

@Cryptek12 Approved.

Just to let you all know, I showed this character to Shard and others on discord but I'm putting it up here to make it official for the RP:

Name
Doesn't remember.

Vigilante Name
Vermin Roach

Age
30 (?)

Species
Mutant

Gender
Male

Ethnicity
American

Nationality
American

Occupation
Information Broker

Alignment
True Neutral

Detailed Information

Appearance
Vermin Roach stands around 5'8". His weight is unknown but he looks slender. But in appearance, it can be hard to call on since he's always wearing long clothing to conceal himself. This usually includes a jacket with a hoodie attached to cover his head and most of his face and rest of his upper body. Usually wears either sweatpants or jeans. Sneakers. If he finds them, he even wears gloves of various kinds.

Personality
Whenever someone has the chance to actually talk to Vermin Roach, he sounds like he doesn't care. It's hard to pin down a persona on him but due to his occupation, he just cares about the business and nothing more if you should ask anyone else who's spoken to him before. He never insults or praises whoever he talks to but once in awhile, he may if his "client" seems either threating or nervous around him. But if there IS someone who goes after him or threatens his life, he will act intimidating and creepy.

Origin
Vermin Roach. In the criminal underworld to even government agencies, there isn't a soul that doesn't know that name. A man with perhaps a mysterious and even gross habits and power, many a common thug to even a higher up crimelord would even tell you to never cross this guy and keep it professional whenver he's involved in some business deal. Not because he's a fighter.

But because of his ability to get information from almost anywhere within city limits or wherever he is.

Other than being a Information Broker and mutant, not much is known of the personal history of Vermin Roach. Nobody even knows his real name or how he physically looks. Rumors, however, are always whispered where ever he goes. One says he's a walking mutant experiment gone wrong. Another says he was born what he is and was shunned by even his mutant parents. And yet another with the typical comic book plot device "thug in the wrong place at the wrong time".

And yet there's no denying that wherever he goes, choas usually follows. Villians, heores, vigilantes or whatever. It doesn't matter who or what you are. If you need information and you have the money, physical or electronic, or even something he desires, Vermin Roach will do his part and get the detailed information you need. From pin numbers and passwords to secret identities, he'll go to many lengths to satisfy his customer.

With complete disregard for the consequences...

Notable Relations
No one. As far as he's concerned, anyone is just a potential customer or possible threat.

Resources
Whatever he can get his hands on. Also whatever he can buy off the black market or "dark web" with his earnings.

Everyday Skills
Since he never stays in one place for too long, Vermin Roach knows how to adapt to any place he stays from a normal apartment to a hole in the wall if necessary and so long as it's indoors. He knows how to cook. And while he's no hacker, he knows his way around general PC usage so he'll know if he's being hacked or someone is watching his activities. He frequents the "dark web" for possible job requests as well.

Combat

Fighting Style
Vermin Roach isn't exactly what you call a fighter. He rather use blackmail and intimidation than actual physical combat. But that's only if someone goes looking for trouble on him. Other than that, he's known to be an untrained street fighter/knife fighter.

Strengths
Smart and clever. If possible, Vermin Roach always have a backup escape route in case someone corners him. He can quickly memorize a location and possible escape routes should the need arise. And because of his profession, he knows how to manipulate information to his advantage.

Weakness
The obvious. He's not a fighter of any kind. And while a mutant with the slight overal phyical mutations, a well-trained human can beat him. And though he knows when he's being hacked or observed electronic's wise, he can't stop it. He can arm himself with any weapon he buys from either the black market or the dark web but it'd be for self defense purposes only.

Equipment
As stated, anything that he finds or buys.

Power

Strength
It's this "gross" power that gained him the name Vermin Roach and the reputation to go with it and his position as information broker. He can control cockroaches. It's unknown how many but up to a range of 10 yards, he can control whole armies of them at once. He even grants them a nasty ability to drain a target of their natural energy should enough of them make skin contact to the point of physical exaustion of said target. Other times though, he just has them fly around and distract a target or even intimidate anyone trying to start trouble. After 10 yards though, he can only control one at a time. But the distance to control one is said to be city wide. He even can "look" from the roaches perspective: sight, smell, touch and even feel pain if they experience it. It's even said that, as a swarm, he can see all around him through his mind. It's because of this ability that allowed vermin roach to effectively do his job as information broker.

Weaknesses/Limitations
The obvious one as stated before is that he's no hand to hand fighter. If you manage to get past his "army", block his escape routes, blackmailing and intimidation factors and get him to fight, your odds of winning are good. His power can be disrupted too. Like a real roach, sudden bright lights turning on can makes them all scatter. Heck, enough firepower can stop his army too. Himself included and he'll run fast. He also need low-lighted settings because of this. Sewer systems, abandoned buildings with no light and only going out at night shows how much he avoids bright areas due to sensitive eye sight. He doesn't know yet but Vermin Roach also believes that any mutant or special device that can block mind reading or TK based powers can also stop his control over roaches but he's yet to test that theory. And when he's only controlling one roach at a time past 10 yards and beyond, he can feel it's pain too as stated. If that roach is killed and he doesn't break the mind link soon enough, he'll either feel agonizing pain or knocked out for a bit.

Extra
Vermin Roach, because of his occupation and abilites, has also made some powerful enemies. One of which is MSU. It's said that due to his powers and personality, MSU has declared him a "danger to national security" and has a rumored bounty on his head.

After a good bit of deliberation, I've decided to drop out. While I fully intend to follow along for all the lovely story telling, this has served as an excellent reminder that I struggle with true open-world RPs. I do much better with a clear bit of structure. As such, I'll certainly be getting into Venture Academy as that seems much more up my alley.

Happy Writing!
