[ Pariah ]



Some call us superhumans, some call us enhanced, some even call us freaks of nature.

Over time, the ‘politically correct’ term has become Variant -- as in, a variation of the normal human genome. We’re said to have an anomaly in our genetic code that allows us to manifest certain powers or abilities.

No explanation as to how or why or where this came from...either way, it’s a major source of conflict in our world.

While the world struggles to figure out what to do with Variants, the Variants struggle to find their place in the world.

There are those who want to try and maintain ordinary lives just like everyone else...perhaps use their abilities to help a few people or get ahead in life.

Some prefer to play the hero, believing that their abilities were somehow bestowed upon them for upholding some grand responsibility.

And, yet, there are those who would rather watch the world burn just to see if anything will rise from the ashes...

Apparently, a normal life isn’t an option for someone who can turn into ice or has armored skin or can read minds...too much to ask, it seems.

But with every struggle, there’s a story...and this is ours.

Notes
  • We’re focusing more on outcasts and vigilantes in this RP, but a few Nobles are welcome
  • Chimera, The Syndicate, and The Glorious Alliance are non-playable, however some loose ties or past associations are acceptable (just ask me if you need clarification)
  • N.O.V.A. / M.A.D. agents are non-playable; strictly for NPCs and background (suggestions for agents are welcome, though)
  • Non-Variant characters are welcome
  • Class 5 Variants are not allowed
  • Be careful when using Distortionist-type abilities so that they are not too overpowered
  • This is taking place in the year 2080 in an alternate version of America
  • If you want to play multiple characters, I’m allowing a max of two per person
  • Have fun!!!

Name | Mikael Peacemaker
Alias | Reflector
Age | 16
Gender | Male.
Appearance | 5'5, 60kg, Mikael has shortly-trimmed, clean blonde hair and green eyes and a slight build.
Notoriety | Noble.
Danger Level/Variant Type | Level 1 Distortionist
Abilities |

Power Reflector - Powers or attacks enhanced by powers bounce off Mikael's body and are either reflected back to their wielder, another person entirely, or on a random direction. This covers all powers of all types, whether physical, mental, beneficial or negative, meaning that he cannot be hurt or healed by powers unless he intentionally suppresses his ability, which in turn takes concious effort.

Drawback: This does not affect bullets, speeding vehicles, or other mundane weapons. Basically, if it is not a power or enhanced by one, it does not bounce off and affects Mikael as normal.

[Gear]
Attire | Mikael wears fine clothing, one which a rich boy would normally wear (see the picture for reference).
Armament/Equipment |

- Omni-Tool/Smartphone.
- Passport and Official Papers identifying him as a US Citizen, Registered, and Noble.
- Credit Sticks containing enough cash to maintain a wealthy lifestyle for several months.
- Bulletproof vest.
- Taser.
- Pepper Spray.
- Self-Driving Limousine /w bulletproof glass windows.

[Temperament & Lifestyle]
Affiliation | Lothlorien Co. (Start-up).

Personality/Habits | Mikael is dedicated to the study of powers, and his life goal is to find a way to replicate the Variant Gene in order to eliminate the inequalities which come from the existence of superpowers. Arrogant, standoffish, and a believer that money and power can solve every problem he has, Mikael nevertheless desires to be loved and love in return, which creates a vulnerable spot in his heart. Nevertheless, Mikael is self-aware enough to know that his behavior would cause problems in the future, and so he tries to learn the ruidments of politeness and etiquette.

Occupation/Trade | CEO of a Start-up Company.

Skills/Talents | Mikael is a socialite who has learned enough business and economics in order to run a company, and also surprisingly-skilled in track-and-field. He also knows basic programming and cybersecurity, enough to get into a heavily-guarded building with help.

Family | Ramiel Peacemaker (Father, Dead), Gabrielle Brown-Peacemaker (Mother, Dead).

Background | Mikael was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, to a rich family which had used investments in the tech industry, outward friendliness to Variants, and plain luck (though they would not admit that). His parents loved him without spoiling him, and knew that they needed to sacrifice some of their social position in order to spend time with their 'adorable and cute son'. And even though he didn't know that their devotion to him was unusual among the rich at that time, he returned their love with everything he had.

Nevertheless, growing up rich and privileged still made him isolated from those 'beneath him', and the love he was showered in blinded him to the ambition and grasping nature of his peers. And so when someone hired a Variant hitman to kill his family, it came as a surprise to him, and the only way he survived the superpowered fire the hitman blasted him with was the activation of his own abilities, which didn't save his family; even today, he still felt as though he might have been the one to kill them by reflecting his foe's attack.

Inheriting their wealth after inheritance taxes took a percentage of it, Mikael searched for a purpose in life, and that was studying Variants, first to save people from them, then later deciding that the best way to do that was to give everyone the chance to have powers. And so he first made sure to use his wealth and connections to get Registered and get a 'Noble' status from N.O.V.A. even as he prepared to use his remaining fortune to, well, start a start-up which would do research on Powers, fully-ethical research conducted on paid volunteers...

Okay, reduced Remy to a class 1 and made an additional note that the police may suspect he's a variant, but how they don't think he could be since he wouldn't be living rough. And posted to the Characters tab.

@Letter Bee

You’re the first person I’ve seen wanting to play a Noble. And he definitely seems the type because Nobles usually have money (there are fees that come along with being a Noble). His level would be Class 1 though because his ability isn’t dangerous on its own.

How new is his company?

Everything still checks out…only thing is that you need to change the Notoriety to Indistinct because I renamed it. Other than that, he is approved!
