    Re: New Vindicators Academy of Europe (OOC - Full)

    From Page 1 of the other OOC thread comes....



    I would love the chance to contribute to this marvelous set of stories and would appreciate a chance to play in this world under a great storyteller. I do however have a lingering sense of dread of ever meeting the little alphabet guy.

    Anatomic Separation, Variable Split, Action - Full Round, Duration - Continuous. pr 6 [3pp]
    {In his budding abilities to mitosis, like Entier could, Martin has developed the capacity to split off body parts and let him retain control over that matter. This is the Simulacrum ability he used for spying. He split off a hand, eye, ear, and nose and used morph to make it look like a little version of him (and morph to cosmetically cover the loss of those body parts).}

He can extend this power to someone but must coat [Grapple] the person and must go much slower. His own form blurs as he does this and he can move in 3 dimensions by slipping in between even air molecules.
    Further, he can put forth his mind to look like anything of his mass, even relocating his functional body parts.}

    AP: Beam of Excited Molecules, Damage [Vibrating molecules], Area: Line (General), Secondary Effect, Flaw: Full Round Action, Feat: Affects Insubstantial 2, Indirect, Precise, Subtle 2 PR 8 (22/22)
    {After learning that it was in his sister's Capability to project a beam of vibrating molecules and spurred by the fact that his parents worked with her from a young age to develop her powers but left him ignored, He came up with theories on how it could be done and relentless pursued them until he could also gather molecules, excite them, and release them in a destructive path that continues to agitate affected areas once penetrated.}

    ***************

    Appearance: Martin is 5 foot 6, still not grown into his adult height. He has sandy blond hair and light brown eyes. He wore glasses until his eyes corrected themselves and still unconsciously ‘adjusts’ them, especially when nervous.

    65% Oxygen, 18% Carbon, 10% Hydrogen, a bit of Nitrogen, and a smidge of other stuff: Calcium, Phosphorous, Iron, Sulfur, etc… make up the Human body and Martin can describe them all.
    Martin Curie was never the most popular kid, he had a fondness for science and chemistry, unconsciously drawn to it, even from a young age. This targets a kid for bullying and after the third bloody nose his parents recommended he go out for wrestling just to keep the bullies off of him. Even then, he never really bulked up, just became wiry for his small size.

    If the name is familiar it is because he is indeed descended from Marie and Pierre Curie, the famous chemists and physicists. (or so he believed his whole life) This fact likewise did not endear him to the hearts of would-be-tormentors.

    Discovering his abilities was a rather traumatic occurrence – during a wrestling match he abruptly ‘melted’ into a rippling gold puddle of goo. He came to facing a man in a HazMat suit in a quarantined building. His parents, Jeannette and Basil, intelligent individuals themselves, saw their dreams for their bright son evaporate in the face of his publicly awakened Neo-Sapian powers, or so Martin believed. They try to be supportive, but don’t really know what to do with him and they seemed to carefully watch his 11 year old sister, Gabrielle, for fear she might also manifest.

    Though, this was, in fact, a lie. Martin's parents are a single entity known as Entier. She was a collection of unstable molecules cloned by Dr. Meinstein for his 'Primes' in the bowels of Patriot Robotics. She gained sentience and learned how to manipulate her liquidy form and inherent command over the covalent and ionic bonds in objects she touches. She escaped Patriot Robotics with her donor host, a Neo-Sapien boy with the ability to affect molecules named Martin) and fled to France where, in her desire for a mate and to provide a family for the orphaned Martin, she split off to form Basil Curie, then had another 'child', Gabrielle (Elle).
    Martin (Prime) grew to young adulthood but was killed when his powers were revealed to townsfolk (saving victims of a crash, no less).
    In their/her grief and loss, Entier fabricated a new 'Martin' from her/their mass and raised him as their son.
    They, unbeknownst to Martin, joined a terrorist organization (a reaction to the pain and loss they were still reeling from) in misguided efforts that no one should lose a companion like they/she did.

    Martin tries to be unobtrusive. Maintain his studies. Continue wrestling for exercise and because he feels it may still keep bullies off of him (not fully comprehending that his intuitive grasp of the manipulation and destruction of cohesive bonds of chemicals is a potent deterrent in its own right).

    Complications:
    GF - Tatjana, unstable
    Puddle - (Fluxx's imperfect control over his cohesion means that sometimes powerful impacts (physical or emotional) or the application of heat can cause him a temporary and messy 'accidents' as some or all of him dribbles to the ground).
    Science - (He's subject to the natural laws. For example, if he's submerged in water for a long time, although immune to suffocation, he still has to pull oxygen from somewhere. Bubbles of Hydrogen fizz up from him as he strips and recombines usable O2 molecules. This could just be flavor or this could alert someone he's trying to hide from. To transmute a gallon of water to a gallon of gas requires a fair amount of carbon. He'd have to use a piece of burnt toast or a pencil, or something for the compounds he needs.)
    Open to suggestions.

    Picture:

    For Martin, start with a young Adrien Brody.



    ... in one of those poses that really makes him look French and vaguely disapproving.

    Edit: Spent points on Bluff, Medicine, Knowledge Physical Sciences, and Craft: Chemicals to represent likely skills gained from parents.
    Edit: More skills.
    Edit: 9/1/16 Added more ability to separate Anatomically and even designate a full self from a body part (i.e. teleport)


    Perhaps an older Martin, envisioned by Horsenhero.

      Well, apparently Doug's hatred of heights was lesser than his dislike of Lex ;~)

      So, did Doug just go were-quail, or did he transform into a normal quail?

            I can see the phone call now...

            "Um... there was a fight at the club."
            "Oh god dam- ... *sigh* What did Lex do?"
            "Lex is here?"
            "Lex didn't start the fight?!"

              The bigger surprise to me is that this is the second time Mike has started a fight at the club. Well, it would be surprising if Rose wasn't standing behind him. He's really been rocking that 8 Wis in the last couple of chapters.

                    It's possible.
                    I mean, Tallyho could be giving Mike a roofie to keep Violet preoccupied with that instead of following up the fact that Tallywhatnot exists.

                    Of course it's also possible that Mike really, really, really wants to get with that and is ignoring anything and everything that says it's never going to happen.

                    Been there. I seem to recall being shot down in favor of a guy with no brains, drug issues, and a skateboard.
                    I suspect I dodged a bullet :~P

                      I'm anxious. I have a lot of balls in the air--a lot of surprises I think will be fun (and not just for me, darn it). Resolving the issue of whether Mike's just being a teenage boy or if he's being controlled by Rose is one thing; the deal with the birds is (Eld may be the only one of you to actually think this one's cool); what Voleur is actually up to; what's in the cylinder... The one I'm most looking forward to springing on everyone is the Drifter's hinting that Otso will be single at some point--mostly because I'm not the one in control of that one. The how and why of that are in the hands of TM, HH, and Eld. I have no idea the path they're going to take to get there, and I'm eager to see the choices they make.

                        I'm fascinated. Right now I'm torn between addressing the bouncer and responding to Jakob.

                        And I just realized there's no way to save a reply for later. Hmmm...

                          Lack of saving drafts is one thing I really miss. It takes me usually two tries to get my builds just right before I post em in my Roll Call thread.

                          I'll post tonight for BK-I'm not entirely sure of the layout of his location. Can he do something brash like cut through the ceiling above the guards and drop down for a surprise action or something like that? I may have him power-stunt an Area attack too, but that might be unnecessary. If it's just guards with swords or guns, his Impervious should keep him fairly safe.
                          Any sound can shake the air. My voice shakes the heart!

                            Until a few months ago, my laptop was very temperamental: I could be working on something--nothing else running--and BAM! It'd crash. I took to writing posts up in Word, because if it crashed, Word would generally still have my posts saved. Eventually, I handed the laptop over to a guy who knows what he's doing when it comes to computers (I am lucky I know how to turn one on), and the problem went away. I started working on the posts in the browser window, and started to enjoy the "Save Draft" button. There were a number of times where I'd be out and about, get the email notification that someone replied on my phone, work on a reply, only to save it, open it up on my tablet, work on it a bit, save it, open it on my laptop, finish it, and post it.

                            Those days are gone.

                            Ceiling is a no. My vision is the tower is really just a spiral stairwell with access to other wings of the castle at various floors. It then shoots off into the underground crypt. There's no room above them--just ground and stone.

                              Hello. I'm sorry I've been incommunicado for the last couple of days. One of my Aunts had a fatal stroke, so I've been hip deep in family stuff. Feel free to npc Kas (or just knock him out or whatever) until I get everything straightened out. It shouldn't be much more time until I'm back in the thick of things.

                              Thanks.

                                Got it: make Kas hug everyone. Understood.

                                It all seriousness though, I'm sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family, sir. Be well.
