Cassius Germaine, Snap.Age:
St Laurels High School, 2nd year.Biography:
The Germaine family moved to Rhea when Cassius was fairly young, his memories of his life before Rhea were blurry, far, and few inbetween. Nevertheless, his parents found jobs that jobs that paid a little more than the average and as such Cassius lived a relatively lax life. Even though his parents let him choose which school to do to, he pushed himself to be able to attend the prestigious St laurels High School.
His powers were the thing that worried his parents the most, while powerful and explosive it certainly does affect Cassius- whom now permanently dons gauze bandaged arms, and legs. A few months of tinkering with his gift, he has built up a small obsession with strengthening his powers, either through improving the power or tactical usages. As such he has built up a respectable pain threshold.
He figured the best way to improve was to enter tournaments, as such he has taken to doing so despite his parents worry. Though he really does not care much for his rankings, not minding a lost or such as long as he gained some insight on how to improve his power he was satisfied.
People generally say that Cassius is absent minded during school hours despite getting decent, above-average grades. However when he sets his mind to something that interests/fascinates him he builds up a frightening tenacity towards the goal. He has a discerning eye, being able to (usually) tell a person's disposition despite false smiles given. Other than that he is gives off a happy, if neutral disposition towards others he meets, and can be said to be agreeable in most instances. His 'dust it off my shoulder' attitude makes him a pretty hard guy to anger, usually letting alot of things go despite him being wronged.Powers:Combustion Inducement
He was given a blessing from the God of 'Fire', whom found it funny to have his ability harm the recipient. He has the ability to increase the kinetic speed of atoms, allowing him to ignite it at will. The increasing of kinetic speed has to stem from his body, and as such he is able to use it from any facet of his body. Explosions usually follow a straight line towards the enemy, Cassius is free to increase or limit the intensity of his powers, making a large explosion or a smaller, but very accurate, streamlined attack. An odd facet from his ability is that you can hear what sounds like a finger snap whenever he uses his powers, it is caused by the instantaneous speed at which the highly concentrated gases and sparks react together and crack. Though unnecessary, he also snaps his fingers when using his hands, earning him his epithet.
AccelerationRelationships: Katherine Abigail"Her power is very, very similar to mine. Interesting."
Cassius is able to ignite his feet, giving him massive, quick bursts of speed in a short period of time. He uses this to close the gap between his foe. It is also used for a high-speed punch or kick if necessary.
His body can handle alot of punishment, whether it be from his enemies, or from himself he has the constitution that can rival the zombie-like superpowered individuals in his school. This is the result of his training of consistently using his powers on each part of his body to resist the pain when his double edged power comes into play.
All or Nothing
Cassius uses each, and every exposed part of his body to ignite everything in a radius around him. The area immediate around him will run short of oxygen, people would find it difficult to breath. This ability while astoundingly strong and deadly to his foes, it is the same to him. Though he won't go down from this ability, he will be pretty damned close.
Cassius has a strong respect and empathy for her, as both have similar powers. He is glad that she does not have to suffer direct injury to herself, but feels a bit slighted at the fact that the powers 'given' to him seems to be the same or a very similar god yet he gets hurt with his. He doesn't hold it against her though, instead he directs it at nothing. Other than that they are very occasional powers during some doubles in official or unofficial tournaments. As such they've built up a friendship with her. He might not be aware of it but he harbours a small crush on the girl.Ria Köhler"Heard she's got quite a tongue, though I myself can't say much since I don't see her around often."
Other than passing each other in the hallway, or her odd appearance during lunch hours, he hasn't ever acquainted himself with Ria. As such he has not mind up his mind about her. He does think her powers are very strong, and having heard she was scouted for the vigilante group, he wasn't surprised.Cyan Bridget"Solid, and genuine personality, atleast I think so."
The way they met, acquainted, and eventually befriended each other was fairly non-descript, and simple. They just happened to meet each other during the lunch lane, decided to sit and eat together. Since then, if timing allows it, they eat lunch together and have random, trivial discussions about subjects such as events, school, or even their powers. In terms of powers, Cassius has vested a fair interest in Cyan's powers, thinking it to be unique and cool. He empathizes with how his ability has the power to backfire on him, expressing his sympathies.
