    Well, this forum is definitely more difficult to use with a tablet. It's going to take some getting used to.

    Alex "Lex" Murphy was a happy kid growing up. He, his parents, and younger brother lived in a poor side of town, mostly dominated by Spanish causing him to spend most of his life feeling a little out of place. He made friends young, and spent a lot of time at his friend's places. While not overly clever he liked being able to talk to his friends without his family knowing what they were talking about, and picked up Spanish as a second language just to drive them a little batty.
    He spent a lot of time in gymnastics, to his father's (a football lover) chagrin, but he was quite good at it. He had hopes of getting into the Olympics, and practiced every chance he got, ignoring the comments he gathered from school. His friends especially enjoyed poking fun at him for his gymnastics and being in the band, and for being the goody-two-shoes of the group.
    For all his father's complaints that his friends were the "wrong kind of people" he was a far better influence on them than they were a bad influence on him. They spent a lot of time roughhousing, breaking into old abandoned buildings, and generally getting into trouble that would get them scolded instead of arrested. He took the high ground, walked away when they wanted to do something that might get him in trouble, guilt tripped them when they were doing something stupid, and generally helped them out after they'd learned their lesson the hard way. They called him "our high and mighty white conscious" and grumbled about it significantly, but for all the complaints they still liked him.
    Alex came into his powers quite by accident. His little brother stabbed a knife into a toaster to try to get the bread out and electrocuted himself. Lex grabbed the knife, and pulled it out before his brother was seriously hurt and learned for the first time that he could absorb and channel electricity. The latter he learned when he accidentally blasted the toaster with a small bolt of lightning.
    His family was polarized immediately. His mother, who had been close to him and open to the Neo-Sapien problem turned quiet and distant, his little brother who was already acting out in attempt to get attention now hated his super powered older brother, and surprisingly his father who'd been quite racist against Neo-Sapiens became surprisingly supportive.
    His friends, of course, thought it was awesome and they spent a lot of time trying to figure out how his powers worked. He found that he could suck in power, and when he did he could shoot it out of his hands, or make his hands electrified. He could move at high speeds for short periods of time (once he put on a mask and outran a car when his friends dared him), reacted faster to things that were happening around him, and even seemed to heal up cuts and bruises faster when he was "recharging". He also learned his powers had some limits as he'd run out of juice and need to rest or find some electricity before he could do it again.
    His life came to an end around the time that Apocatastasis attacked New York. With the government putting Neo-Sapiens in internment camps Lex did his best to keep a low profile. This worked fine until the day the cops showed up on his doorstep. Only the actions of his friends helped him escape capture, giving him a chance to run and hide.
    He ran to his father's work with the cops not far behind, and his father surprised him yet again. He made a call, pulled out a small bag from a locker, and handed Lex all the money he had on him. Then he gave his son a hug, told him where he could meet a friend who'd get him to Europe and watched sadly as his son left his life.
    The plan was simple. Stow away on a ship with the help of a friend of his fathers, get to Europe, and from there get to the New Vindicator Academy in Vienna. If he was lucky they'd take him in and he'd be safer than he could be back in the US. If they didn't he wasn't sure what he'd do, but being around a large base of Neo-Sapiens sounded better than nothing...

    Hobbies:
    Gymnastics
    Playing Guitar
    MMORPGs
    Tinkering with computers

    Complications (Family)
    He still loves his family and he's very homesick. His father, Roger, is feeling guilty at the moment. His hatred of Neo-Sapiens came from his dislike of his father who he felt put his mother and him at risk acting like a superhero when he was young. Now that his son is one he believes that it's most likely his side of the family it came from. His mother, Lillian, still loves Lex, but no longer knows how to act around him. It was one thing for her to know Neo-Sapiens were real, but finding out her son was one completely took the floor out from under her. Steven, his younger brother, hates him but Lex doesn't realize it. Lex still likes the annoying little brat, but it's hard to say if he still would when he found out that it was Steven who called the cops on him...

    Complications (Friends)
    Lex had a small but very loyal group of friends when he was growing up. Ricky, Ed, Jose (his real name is Augustus), Ryan and Q (Real Name: Frank). For the most part they weren't really inspired by school, and weren't destined for any real level of greatness, but they were good decent people. They also saved Lex from a long stay in an internment camp. Unfortunately Jose was caught by the cops during the rescue and was charged with assaulting a police officer, aiding and abetting a criminal, and a few other misdemeanours. Luckily he's a young offender, and he got a good lawyer by luck of draw (they aren't kidding when they say one will be provided for you if you can't afford it) so he's mostly stuck with a short stint in juvie and some community service. The rest of his friends are treating Jose like a big damn hero at the moment for saving Lex and for not ratting them out.

    Complication (Brownout)
    Lex's superhuman powers are powered by electricity. Some of this he generates himself, some he can gather up through physical exposure to any source of electricity. But these sources aren't infinate, and if he uses his powers too much he'll "drain the batteries" so to speak, leaving him a very normal human being. The only ability he has that will work when he enters a "brownout" is his ability to absorb electricity. The only way to counter a brownout is to absorb a large amount of electricity, or recharge the old fashion way with a good meal and some sleep.

    Complication (Path of least resistance)
    Electricity is not a weapon of great precision, as it tends to arc from one point to another. Sometimes when Lex shoots a lightning bolt it arcs to something he's not aiming at.

    Concept of powers: Lex is an electricity manipulator. He can absorb it, charging himself up and healing himself. With a large charge he can release this electricity in a blast of "lightning" or by charging his hand up with a high voltage low current field of electricity to stun or "taze" opponents.
    Strangely enough his electricity manipulation seem to have internalized significantly. His nervous system has either been supercharged, or he's somehow receiving sensory information and activating motor responses without having to wait for his nervous system to respond the old fashion way. It's given him enhanced reaction time and muscle control making him a significantly better "shot" then he is normally, and allowing him to get out of the way a lot faster.
    Also the enhanced reaction speeds have allowed him to push his body past its limits when it comes to running. The problem being that while he's gained these powers his body isn't designed for high speeds or designed for high speed reactions. In fact for all his superhuman powers, his body is very much human. Using this super speed actually damages his muscles and bones from the stress he's putting them under. Muscles weren't designed to move that fast, and bones weren't designed to take impacts that fast and repeatedly. His ability to heal through the absorption of electricity has kept him from noticing it, but if he were to push himself too hard it is possible he could break a bone or badly damage the muscles in his legs by forcing himself to those speeds.
    He normally doesn't benefit from his enhanced abilities as using them all the time is a quick way to end up "run down". He prefers to avoid using it until he has to (or feels like it), which means he's normally... normal.

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

    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.

    Jack and Fluxx (Jack is the same as before)

    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.

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

    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?

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

    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?!"
