Hey, it's definately been a while since I Rp'd here (what with school work piling up, severe case of writer's block, and just a complete lack of interest, I just haven't been able to do anything with my characters for some time).
However, the summer seems to have freed me up a bit, so if nobody minds I'd like to bring back a few of my characters from about 300+ pages.
And if it isn't any problem (though I fail to see why it would be other than continuity sake), I'd like to make a few small alterations to them. (really, I can't remember what I was trying to do with them in the first place, and their backgrounds really just bore me now)
Name: Adam Myers
Age: 14 (uggh, sorry about the whole age 16 thing, miscalculation on my part. I'm surprised I went so long in the RP without saying anything about this mistake)
Clothing: A shirt with flame designs, and a pair of jeans (usually)
Hair/eyes: Brown hair, blue eyes
Background: Adam never knew his father growing up. According to his mother, he ran off after finding out she was pregnant with him, so Adam never bothered finding anything out about his deadbeat dad.
Adam's "gifts" began to manifest themselves only a short amount of time ago, and could only recently be controlled. When he learned of a school that could help him with these new powers, he quickly packed up and left town for Chambers High.
(In case anyone is wonderring, I decided I'm not going to use the story arch where his father is an angel anymore. Maybe we could all pretend like that never happened? hopefully?
I'll try just using Adam for now, I don't want to overwhelm myself or anyone else with an onslaught of returning characters. But hopefully soon I'll get back into the swing of the RP, and bring back Mr. Armstrong
Edit: Last night I sat down and came up with a bit of information to help develop Adam's character. Since we're planning on jumping forward to the second quarter, I'd like to try and sum up a lot of the holes in Adam's character.
Adam's abilities come from:
Adam's abilities come from a higher brain function that he was born with, one that acts somewhat like a radio transmitter, sending out waves of electricity and also receiving them. Normally the amounts of electricity given and received would be so small that they would go unnoticed by Adam or anyone around him. However, since Adam's hormones have started to affect him, these waves of electricity have become insanely powerful.
It is this electricity which can repel and attract objects that normally don't have a magnetic charge (telekinesis), or heat the air to a point where it combusts (pyro), or just create arcs of lightning.
Despite bending to his will, he is unable to control how much energy is used. He can just want to give someone a static shock, and wind up electricuting them and putting them into a coma. Using these abilities also fatigues him greatly, which is why he would head back to his room to sleep early on in the RP.
As Adam's body grows used to his hormones, the intensity of these powers will decrease.
Adam goes to Chambers High in order to learn to learn more about his abilities and be able to control them. (Even though by the time he reached Chambers he knew what he was capable of, he was unable to control how much energy he spent. With using fireballs and lightning bolts, he ended up fatiguing himself quickly.)
Despite wanting to only control these gifts, Adam soon finds pride in using them to their fullest in the battle ring against Frank. (teenagers. They think they can do everything
) Because his abilities were still untamed, and he was still using a lot of energy, he was able to pull off some of the things he did, (huge lightning bolt that shattered the floor, etc.) but afterwards went to his room and fell asleep.
I felt I needed to come up with an explanation as to where Adam's abilities come from. I also wanted to balance his capabilities out, seeing as looking back I feel Adam is *way* too overpowered early on in the RP.
I feel by explaining where I want to go with Adam in the future, I can make up for a lot of mistakes I made with him in the past.
