Well, here's how it would be:

The numbered classes (1-5...six would no longer be necessary) would classify the actual abilities.

The descriptive classes that I have listed would describe the Variant themself. These are used as a codeword to get a quick read on a Variant's capabilities with as few words as possible.


With what you have, @Ceta de Cloyes, you're only classifying abilities. If I were to just tell you there was a 'Red level Variant with enhancements' that you needed to deal with, you would have no idea what to prepare for. However, if I instead told you that there was a 'Red level Brute', you would be expecting someone with super strength and not someone who can blow you up. That's the point of the types.

The types basically describe how a Variant would be perceived upon someone first meeting them and seeing their powers in action. Some Variants might fit into multiple categories by default...for example, Nightwolf could possibility be a Brute, Agile, Amplifier, and/or Metamorphic, but only the Metamorphic descriptor would be necessary because it describes how his abilities are mainly used. The rest are basically side effects.

Edit: Like this...

Sabrecat -- Metamorphic
Allomancer -- Architect
Scavenger -- Metamorphic
Roach -- Amplifier
Sway -- Mentalist
Dynamo -- Metamorphic/Architect
Gizmo -- Metamorphic
Tank -- Brute
Don -- Amplifier/Natural
Aria -- Amplifier
Titan -- Amplifier
Identia -- Architect
Shadowbroker -- Distortionist
Nightwolf -- Metamorphic
Jayson -- Mentalist

These describe the overall view without trying to nitpick their powers apart and describe each one. Make sense?

Okay, I can see what you're going for and how my suggestion doesn't really solve that, and now that its broken down I kinda get it. I was going from an angle of broad research purposes, you'd want to compare similar expressions in self-contained variant abilities, external manipulation abilities, and those abilities that come from the mind, more of a how they present classification rather than how you're meant to engage them in combat lmao.

I get ya now o7

Character Sheet

[N.O.V.A. Profile]



Name |Alice Corbett
Alias | Jabberwocky
Age | 27
Gender | Female
Appearance | 5'9", 160lbs., athletic build, Facial scars (one on left brow, two on left cheek)
Notoriety | Missing
Class/Level | Mentalist/ Blue
Abilities | High Level Empath: Emotion Projection, Emotion Detection, Illusion Casting, Empathic Healing (low level), Empathic Link

[Gear] Combat style vest with pockets, said pockets have a variety of things including a pack of cigarettes, a small amount of Marijuana, a small bottle of Mollies, and a few nondescript muscle relaxers

Attire | Normal attire: Jeans and a button down shirt, sweatpants and a Tanktop, whatever shirt she grabbed to chase down the toddler

Armament/Equipment | a small set of keyring style brass knuckles, a can of mace, the bar has a shotgun under it, a beaseball bat

[Temperament & Lifestyle] Alice is a very calm individual, always seems well put together. Her lifestyle is quite hectic, she runs semi backwards to a normal schedule. Wonderland opens at 8pm, closes to the general public at 2am. She stays awake cleaning and keeping up the bar until time to take Wren to preschool, and then ZONKS until time to pick up the kid. Playtime, dinnertime, bathtime and bedtime, repeat. Ask anyone, she is a very genial but kind of closed off type person. The only other person who matters is Wrenly.

Affiliation | Individual, Wonderland (Bywater District)

Alignment | Maverick

Personality/Habits | Alice is very friendly and outgoing on the surface, she does run a bar after all. She is very good at keeping the liqour flowing as well as conversation, without actually speaking about herself very often. Quick to laugh or smile, but always has a mask in place for the public. Alice tends to be fairly neat, the bar is always spotless and well stocked. The apartment above it is also very clean, unless the toddler has wreaked havoc.

Occupation/Trade | Bartender/ Single parent

Skills/Talents | Alice can both detect the emotional state of individuals as well as use her own state to influence others. She can use the emotional fluctuations of those under the influence of mood altering drugs/alchohol to induce a kind of hallucinogenic state, similar to a "bad trip". She can also, once an emotional bond/link has been formed, know when someone is in a state of emotional distress such as danger or shock and get a sense of where they are in relation to her within a radius of a few blocks. Alice can, when concentrating all her focus, heal small wounds both physical and emotional by "taking on" the wound. This is limited and very uncommon for her to do, as it makes her vulnerable.

Family | John Hawthorne, father (deceased). Linda Hawthorne, mother (deceased). Nicholas Hawthorne, Brother (deceased). Emily Hawthorne, sister in law (deceased). Unnamed parents, (deceased). Wrenly Corbett, niece (alive, 4 years old).

Background | Alice grew up in a fairly reasonable home life with her parents John and Linda and her older brother Nicholas. She and her brother were practically inseperable, and anyone who knew them would tell you that Alice was always masterminding their adventures. Whenever trouble happened, Nick would always stick up for his sister, claiming wholeheartedly "Alice gets whatever she wants!" Whether it was "borrowing" the neighbors car to go get pizza or "convincing the ice cream man to give them everything", Alice was always at the root of the problem but seemingly always escaped punishment. After getting in hot water at school for convincing two boys to fight, Alice was placed in a Childs therapy group where it was discovered that she was actually manipulating the emotions of those around her. Her family was torn apart by the discovery: her parents thought they ad failed to raise her right and her brother staunchly defended her; saying it was not her fault that she had these abilities and that she would never misuse them with people she knew/loved. She was institutionalised at her parents behest and used as a study by several psychologists/ scientists who eventually officially handed over to N.O.V.A for their use. Trained by N.O.V.A as a tracker/influencer, Alice was sent out to use her abilities to convince Variants to register by choice or by force as well as to track down those who were harmful. This was a highly successful and lucrative job but earned the ire of the Variants. Her brother Nicholas, however, was proud of his sister and the work she did; telling her it was a neccessary part of keeping people safe. He considered it just as important as a police officer or a doctor, just for Variants. Alice had her doubts as to the morality of her job as more and more Variants were "convinced" to register the Hard Way and tried to leave N.O.V.A for good. She used her access to the registry of Variants to find a small group of Vigilantes who she paid handsomely to help her fake her death in a freak car accident. They set her up with a new identity, papers, and a place to stay until things blew over. She struck up a kinship with a fellow Variant by the name of Jessica Beadle. Through Jessie, Alice tried to reach out to her brother to let him know she was still alive and say her goodbyes only to find that he and his wife had died in a "botched home invasion". Her niece had been found in the closet of her home and was in the custody of Social Services, so Alice and Jessie fudged the records to give Alice custody of her. With the only family she has left and a single friend who knows of her past, Alice is determined not to go back under the eye of N.O.V.A. And as we all know: Alice gets what she wants

[N.O.V.A. Profile]

Name | Titania Monroe
Alias | Joules
Age | 28
Gender | Female
Appearance | 5'6", 160lbs, lean but muscular frame, her lichtenberg figures when not covered up.
Notoriety | Unknown/Missing
Variant Type/Danger Level |
Abilities | Electrical generation, electrical drain, alteration of electrical waves including those in the brain, electrical sight, electrical form, generation of small range EMP, near immunity to other electrical forces but can be overloaded, weaknesses include water but can bathe lightly, grounding.

[Gear]
Attire | Augmented gloves so that she doesn't shock others along with her rubber cybersuit
Armament/Equipment | Carrys a baton just in case.

[Temperament & Lifestyle]
Affiliation | Independent with loose times to the underground
Alignment | Benefactor
Personality/Habits | Titania is a level headed person who can think he way through things as she has been trained as an EMT. Due to he power she has become a bit of a loner except when she is saving people. She has a bit of a savior complex.
Occupation/Trade | EMT with some medical practice
Skills/Talents | Medical knowledge along with talking a person through something.
Family | Her mother who now doesn't remember her.
Background | Becoming a Variant was the scariest thing for Titania. One moment she felt normal the next lightning coursed through her veins. Once she had been an EMT in a city that didnt care for Variants. Then she ran into one, the girl had been 8 years old and scared out of her mind that something was after her. Titania tried to calm the girl down but suddenly out of nowhere the area went dark and all she could hear was laughing. Then the lightning started. Her partner on that was on the shift with her grabbed Titania and drove off as she had saw the little girls face warp into something horrific. Just as they thought they had made it out a bolt of lightning struck the ambulance then arced to her and her partner. He died immediately and she took the jolt head on. It knocked her out and left lichtenberg figures all down her body. When the police found her and her partner Titania's scars were glowing with with a blue white light. She was then taken to a facility where she was locked up for murder of her partner as they wouldn't listen to anything she had to say. 6 months passed and the underground broke her out. Somewhat grateful but also pissed she took the chance to work for them but didnt get highly involved. It was discovered that she could almost kill a person when she was at full capacity so one of the underground's brightest developed her a suit that channeled her energy and regulated it. It fit under her cloths and she would always say it was because she wanted to hide her scars. In truth it was because she didnt wanna kill anyone with her hands. Going back home after a while was a culture shock. Discovering her mother now resented her she discovered a new power when she looked into her mother's eyes and wished that she could just forget her. It was like her wish had come true but later Titania discovered that she had altered her mother's electrical impulses in her brain. Titania took on more jobs for the underground but after a couple of years left to become an EMT again. Hiding her powers as much as she could and erasing the memory of anyone who say her using them.

With her mom is was a fluke that she erased her self from her mom. But with others it's only the last 10 or so seconds so she isnt unknown but more a mystery

Saw that juicy dramatique electrokinetic in the inspiration channel on the discord and had to do some quick revamping and rephrasing :P The powers are now slightly renamed and edited to be a bit less specific, but not nearly as broad as our energy vampire lmao
