Nicole




"I see how it is."

Nicole stepped up to the girl's table, placing her drink in front of her. "I have to spend weeks digging the truth out of you, but as soon as I do you turn around and start sharing with the world?" Despite her words, Nicole's eyes were nearly sparkling. It had been a long time since she was genuinely happy for someone, but in just the last few minutes Archie seemed to have gained a support base he desperately needed. Maybe he would stop looking so gloomy all the time, and even put away that flask she sometimes saw him with.

Looking over her shoulder, Nicole made sure nobody else was about to wander in from the cold, then turned and stuck her hand out to the other girl. "Hey, I'm Nicole. I've seen you around a couple times, but we've never really talked." She was building her way up to an offer she wanted to give both of them, but she felt like it needed to come up naturally. She was worried about scaring Archie off, now that she had finally gotten him to open up, and she wanted to start trying to help him work through his problems. In this city, people might call her a bleeding heart or a fool, but Nicole could never have stopped herself from reaching out if someone was suffering right in front of her.

Actually if you fight him one on one you fight TWO guardians the way you've said it. He has one he can summon then an extra for each enemy. Just saying.
Nicole




Nicole gave Archie one last smile and patted his arm before moving back to the counter. Normally she would have closed up already by now, and she briefly considered doing that anyway, but she decided she was in a generous mood and wouldn't be running the shop tomorrow either way, so she could stay up another few hours. She busied herself at the espresso machine, keeping an eye on Archie to make sure he was still okay, then turned her smile to her other customer. She had seen the other girl in the cafe before, but had never really interacted with her that much. She was quiet, keeping to herself and barely saying anything. Still, today seemed to be a day for firsts, so Nicole decided to try and start a conversation.

"It's a little late for everybody to be drinking so much caffeine. Is there something going on tonight everyone needs to stay up for?"

Inwardly, Nicole wondered how she had gotten this far in life with such lousy social skills.
Nicole




Nicole silently walked back around the counter, balancing two steaming mugs in her hands as well as a small pitcher of cream and another with sugar. She carefully placed her burden on the table, pushing one of the mugs at Archie, then lowered herself into the chair opposite, studying him carefully.

"Do you mean like metaphorically? You have an anger problem and... holy shit, you're being literal aren't you?" Nicole stared at Archie dumbfounded for a moment, then slumped backward in her chair. "I mean, I knew people with powers were showing up, but I didn't expect someone to actually show up on my doorstep."

Nicole stared atArchie for a long moment, then came to a decision of her own.
"I suppose since you told me your secret, it's only fair that I show you mine." she closed her eyes and reached out to the work table behind her, finding what she was looking for sitting just inside her range. She pulled at. The torn piece of clothing, feeling the frayed edges and broken seams. The entire article floated off the table and into her hands, the threads twitching like snakes as they sought to rejoin the breaks.

"I know it isn't the same," she said leaving the cloth to settle again as she returned her attention to Archie, "My power doesn't change who I am when I use it, I never hurt people without meaning to. I cant say I understand how you feel. Still, I hope that knowing there's someone else who isn't completely normal will help you somehow." Nicole smiled at Archie, a rare, actual smile, "I want to help if I can. Don't worry about the clothes, I'll take care of them, and if you ever need to talk, I'll be around."
Nicole




Nicole plastered a smile over her face as she heard the door open behind her, standing up and turning around to greet what must be her last customer of the day. Her smile brightened again as she recognized Archie, sheepishly standing in her doorway.

"Archie! Back again? I was just about to close up shop, but it's not like I have anywhere to be. Come on in, I'll make some coffee and we can talk." Nicole tossed the rag she was using over the counter, curving it a little in midair to make sure it landed in the sink, and crossed behind the bar herself to start up her coffee making machinery. "Let me guess, you need another set of clothes? I swear, the way you go through them you'd have to be ruining them every night. If you told me what you were doing with them I could make them to last, you know?"

She glanced up at Archie with a pointed look as the tools of her trade whirred to life, as if trying to see into his head. Soon enough she dropped her gaze back to her task, dragging two clean mugs from the dish drawer. She picked two of the largest she had, since she figured it was going to be a long night, and Archie didn't seem like he was planning on calling it a night himself.

Time of day: Night
Weather: Rain

Nicole glanced out the window of her store, watching the rain fall on the sidewalk outside. She paused in cleaning the table she was working on and cast her gaze over her shoulder, looking over the rest of the store. There were no customers inside, either in the small cafe area or the larger clothing store. The only other person in the building was Gabriel, working with one of the machines behind the bar.

"Gabe, go ahead and head out. I'll take care of cleanup. I don't think anybody else is coming in tonight. You can take tomorrow off too, if you want. I got a special order today, so I'll probably be working on that." Nicole smiled at her only employee. Gabriel nodded and set down his rag.
"I'll see you Friday then," he muttered, grabbing his bag and umbrella and heading out the door. Gabriel was always quiet when it was just the two of them, preferring to stay silent if nothing needed to be said. Nicole kept smiling as he left, only letting her expression drop when she was sure nobody could see. Heaving a sigh, she went back to cleaning the tables, not bothering to lock the door yet.



The shop was called The Woven Roast, a relatively small corner store on the Valley edge of Santa Celia. It was family owned, going back two generations, well liked by it's regulars and completely unknown to everybody else. Recently, it had gone through a rebranding, the Cafe side of the business taking a back seat to Nicole's specialty clothing store. With her power an open secret, Nicole wove special traits into her wares, creating scarves that warmed themselves when tied, or shirts that stayed cool in any weather. She even advertised for special orders, if somebody wanted something not on the shelf. The new direction had driven away some of the store's regulars, but with the money she was making now, Nicole could afford the loss of business. Her real target customers were the type that often needed maintenance on their outfits, so she could be sure she wouldn't be running out of money soon.

Nicole is very small, and is often mistaken for someone much younger than she is. She tries to compensate for her youthful appearance by wearing her hair in a bun, using glasses instead of contacts, and wearing bulky clothing like sweaters and scarves. She wears only light makeup, if any at all, and has no tattoos or piercings. Her slender figure and small stature lead many to refer to her as 'cute', though she insists she is mearly average.

Personality
β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”
On the surface, Nicole is very bubbly and cheerful, bordering on airheaded. She greets everyone with a smile or motherly concern, whichever is waranted, and always has time to listen to someone talk about their day. Behind closed doors, however, Nicole tends to focus on her own failings, percieved or real, and slowly loses any desire to do things. Left alone for long enough, Nicole will become less and less active, eventually performing only the neccessary day-to-day tasks she must. Lately, this has become less of a problem as she has a store to run and customers to see to, but occasionally her old habits resurface.
Character Synopsis
β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”
Nicole was born in Santa Celia, where her parents ran a small coffee shop that had just enough regulars to keep the doors open. She lived a fairly idylic life, helping her parents out in the shop when she could and spending time with her friends or at school. She discovered she had powers when she was 14, when she was fussing over a frayed seam on one of her shirts and managed to accidentally unravel the whole thing, then managed to get herself completely tangled in the resulting pile of thread. It took her parents two hours to rescue her, durring which there was an inevitable panic, then a conversation about how this had happened and finally a caution from her parents to keep herself safe and not get herself in trouble. From then on she experimented with her powers in secret, managing to make it to the end of high school without any major issues. Just as she began college, however, news stories began to circulate about people with extraordinary abilities alternately committing and stopping crimes. By the end of her second year, Nicole decided she was tired of keeping her abilities secret, and moved back home to take over her family store, adding her own touch to the business by opening a specialty clothing store, where she could sell clothing with a bit of extra function or, for a higher price, certain specialty orders. After all, she reasoned, if there are going to be superheroes, somebody is going to have to make their suits.

Abilities & Skills
β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”β–”
//Abiliites:
Thread/Cloth Control | Nicole has full control over the movement of thread in her vicinity. She can move it precisely enough that she can weave thread into high quality cloth, and can extend her awareness into the thread to manipulate it on a much finer level than modern machinery.

Fabric Modification | Nicole can imbue thread and cloth with special properties, from extra durability or fire resistance to glowing or color-changing. This process takes more time and energy than simply manipulating the cloth.

Limitation(s) | Nicole's Thread Control is very short range, only extending about five feet from her body. Moving thread with any precision requires focus, almost to the point of trance, so anything more than broad movment is dificult outside of a controled environment. Changing the properties of cloth takes even more focus, and leaves her weak after any serious work.

Weakness(es) | Nicole has very low combat ability. Physically she is below average for a normal human, and her powers have almost no direct combat application.

//Skills:
Clothes Making | Nicole is very skilled at making clothing using her power. The variety and quality of her work is on par with some major clothing manufacturers.

Bilingual | Nicole learned American Sign Language in college.

Cooking | Nicole spent most of her early life learning to cook and work in a kitchen helping out her parents.

I dunno. It was like, 15 pages long at the time so I didn't argue.
I mean specifically because it was too long for an interest check. I'm very careful about posting in the right places. Ever since the... event...
