Costume: A black nano fiber, composed of a silicone laced cloth, the cloth covers her torso and legs while leaving her arms open for full movement capability. The stretchiness of the fabric clings to her body, so when parts of it are used up to extend her limbs, it doesn't end up sagging down and flopping in the wind, but rather, still sticking to her body and acting as a “double skin”. It's a stretchy and water proof way to protect him from certain attacks and leave her able to stretch and move freely without being hindered by the fabric, which has been a constant problem with the standard issue costumes worn during quirk training and physical tests. To aid in her quirks ability, she has a 20Liter bin attached to her back, with a large pipe leading down to her lower back. This bin holds organic matter that is pumped into her while battling. It can get in the way sometimes, yet it allows him to use her quirk to the fullest ability.

Hero name: Plant Matter
Weight: 78 pounds
Floro has grown since her abandonment from birth, being a small toddler thrown into the wilderness just as a quirk is being formed causes her to be reckless and crazy, acting on impulse and letting her emotions get the best of her too many times. It wasn't until she was found by is soon to be adoptive father, Jamison Ford, a plantation owner in the great plains of america. This spry old man was a jolly fellow, and his wife Mabel, was just as happy going as him. The two found the young girl when she was given to them, she was found wandering in the tall grass around one of his many plantations by a worker who thought it was their child. Both Mabel and Jamison both had plant based quirks so it was a strange coincidence that flora was found by them. The two gladly adopted the young girl, yet it was proved to be difficult, as the rowdy nature of the girl raised in the wilderness. Flora had no manners, was disobedient and always fought tooth and nail with her mother and father. She’s a crazy person, a wild spirit with no “roots” to bind her down. She always wants to explore and bound into actions. She’s a bundle of vines and joy, ready to take on the world! The best way to do it… join Komei Academy!
Flora also gets extremely drowsy and irritable whenever She is gone for a long period of time away from sunlight and water. It also browns his vines and wilts her down, making her sluggish and brittle.
Flora was born to a family of entirely quirkless people, She seemed to be a normal child at birth, with only this strange growth in her naval. The family hated the new superheroes of the world, seeing them as un-pure and taboo to be around. The family held to this truth firmly, they had already killed two of their children, both born with quirks… and they didn't want to kill another child, so the brushed off the growth as a birth mark. Something a normal child could be born with right? It wasn't until the age of four, where quirks normally manifest did flora’s cover and safety had been pulled from her. It was a horrific even for her birth parents, their beautiful child had turned into all that they had hated. Her quirk was prominent, there was no hiding it, her birth parent’s opinions of her changed like the snap of a finger. Their “beautiful” child was now now a monster to them, an animal to be hunted and killed. Flora’s quirk transformation happened as She was outside, She felt something inside her.. As his “growth” began to glow, it was dim, and never got brighter, yet spindles of wooden tendrils started pushing up and through her flesh, creeping up his body. It felt as if her entire self was being pushed out of her, She felt as if She was choking, gasping and hurting. Then… it was nothing. There was no glow. There was no more pain. Flora looked at his hands, they looked like bound, coiled vines. Her body was entirely made of wood. She felt his face… wood as well. Her parents looked on in horror as She transformed. Her father’s face, blank and stern, staring blankly with no emotions. He was the first to act, pacing inside and pulling out his gun, aiming it at flora. Flora looked at her father, his eyes were full of hate and anger, no mercy, no remorse. Flora turned and ran, into the flat plains, never to look back, She heard gunshots ring out from behind her. Her own parents tried to kill her. She kept running, just to get away. She ran for hours, she felt no heavy breath. She felt exhaustion but not tiredness. She was alone, lost, and scared. She hated her body, she hated herself. A monster, a being that could never fit into the world, or so she believed. She wandered through the plains, farther than she’d ever been before, exploring and curiously poking and looking at everything. She became very wary of everything.. No matter how curious she was she never touched the animals… she always felt as if she’d hurt them… as she wandered.. The days passed.. It had almost been a week of complete alone time. She became careless and wild, learning that she never had to eat.. She never felt hunger since her transformation.. All she did was lay in the sun. She did get thirsty sometimes, but she learned that digging her feet into the ground, she could absorb moisture from the earth.
It was a little more than a month.. She hadn't had any human interaction, wandering for miles just… wandering… never looking for something. Yet, it was midday and she saw something in the distance… it just looked like a building? Simple.. Plain… She hurriedly raced towards the building in the tall grass, when the bright green grass around her changed to a golden hue, she’d never seen something like this in her time in the plains. But just as she was looking on in awe, a heavy grip pulled on her arm, lifting her into the air. She yelped in surprise and turned to face her assailant. It was just a.. Large man.. Kinda wide.. But.. his hands were so shiny.. Like the metal hinges on the old door at her… ‘home’. He looked over the plant being he held in her hands, thinking to himself ‘hmm.. This looks like a kid of the Fords… wonder what.. It was doing here..’ Flora struggled in the man's grasp, writhing and pulling. Yet he just shook his head, “listen here… you lost? Cuz I didn't see you come ‘ere with the fords. I’ll send you there way, but i ain't lettin go.” Flora hissed at him, kicking and yelling as he was brought to Mr.Jamison. The man knocked on Mr.Ford
's door, peeking inside, as Flora screamed at him. Jamison looked up at him in confusion, questioning the yelling. “Uh, yes Mr.Ford
, there was this kid out in the field.. It kinda fits with your quirk so i was wondering if this was yours?” he walked inside Mr.Ford
’s office holding Flora to jamison. He stood up in surprise of the plant.. Being in front of him, it sure did look like something one of his offspring would look like.. He clasped his hands together, and stood up with certainty. “Why, yes! She’s our child. Don't you recognize her?” the man was taken back for a second “u-uhh.. No sir! Sorry about that” the man put Flora onto the ground, where she then scurried into a corner. Jamison looking at the man with a stern look “lookit what you’ve done! You’ve scared her! Get out of my office!” The other man bowed and quickly left leaving Flora and Jamison alone… Flora was extremely cautious, holding her hands over her head, watching the man.. He seemed to pace around in the same curious way, looking at her. He crouched down in front of her, asking all sorts of things… “where did you come from?”, “where's your parents?”, “how’d you get here?”, “why are you here?” she answered all of them calmly, opening up to him, getting more and more comfortable with the man. She told him of her story.. How her parents forced her to leave… Jamison listened in curiosity, and sympathy for the young child. Being thrown out of her home for having a quirk… what a terrible thing to do to a child… He saw the wonderful potential that this child had, and thought that if he raised her… she could become an amazing hero! That was when the delightful Ford’s gained a new member to their family. Flora was ecstatic about having a family, yet.. She never had such a formal family before.. Jamison sent flora to school the week she was brought home. At school she was gawked at, not for her quirk, but because she was the new kid. Albeit yes people were curious and amazed by her quirk, and since she was actually in a school she was able to explore her abilities. She learned about her quirks limb manipulations, able to extend her vines around and use them, it was amazing for her! Yet it was always back to the formality of her family. She was a rebel, never listening to her parents and fighting their will. Her wild nature and crazy attitude completely contrasted her parents calm and formal ways. Jamison, supported flora, always taking her on long walks in the forest, showing her his quirk. Jamison was able to control plants themselves, growing and moving them like malleable clay. The only downside is how much manipulation he can do per day. Mabel on the other hand, produced seeds, out of her wrists there were several perforations that grew pods of bundles of seeds, each day. It was like shaving, just.. Popping a pod out of her arms.
It has been a good 12 years flora had lived with Mabel and Jamison, or to her, Mom and Dad. even with all their gripes and fights she loved the two so much. Saving her from the backwards mother and father that birthed her, yes it still haunts her, but she wants to be better than them. She had made great strides in her quirks power, all that she will love to show off… later to her new classmates. She was being sent away to japan, to Komei Academy, her parents believe that it will be the best place for her to become a hero. It was her time to shine, she was prepared and ready to face the world and meet all the people with their amazing abilities!
their torso is the core to their plant like body. it's almost entirely solid wood, aside from her ‘organs’ are just larger scale plant cellular structures, as well as a single bright "core" in their naval, it's where their actual mind, and person is located. making it a complete weak point. As long as their core is not shattered their plant body can be put back together with relative ease, Floro's limbs are spindly vine-like hands, and legs. Floro can control the vines with extraordinary precision, as well as extend and retract them. Floro's main drawback is that he can stretch his vines, it's a kind of equivalent exchange. As one part of his body extends, others shorten. To combated this, floro can consume floral matter to add to their pool of material to use, growing in size and physical prowess the more floral matter he consumes. Some passive things that floro's quirk entails is that he doesn't need to eat, he just needs some water and sunlight, he does need to breath CO2 though.
Talents: Floro, is a master gardener, loves to swim and is obsessed with insect collecting. they also love to draw! She is also a very good Bushman, with skills learned from her father and reluctantly loves to cook.
