Now, I know this isn't entirely original, but I think it's an excuse to RP, you know? I came up with a pretty interesting story for it, as well. What you may know is that this story is going to be several years after the canonical one, where the majority of the characters of the show will not be alive. But for now, my young friends, create your character!

Rules:

1. I would LOVE for you to come up with a new power not shown in the shows, but if you MUST have a power from the show, PM me FIRST.

2. If you like to be a part of the Company, ask me.





Name:
Age:
Nationality:
Power: (if any)
Background:




My (main) character:


Name: Eddie Powter
Age: 17
Nationality: American
Power: Has the ability to, if focusing on someone, fall into a trance and read someone's mind through their memories, but most know their name and what they look like. Will eventually be able to astral project into normal world.
Background: Eddie was an average student in his school, average grades and in the middle of the social food chain, until one day, doodling a silly sketch of his teacher in his notebook, he discovered his power. Since then, he's been followed by strange people, and he's growing more and more afraid that he's gotten into something he doesn't know if he can get out of.

Name: Alyssa Isiadore.
Age: 22
Nationality: Caucasian
Power: she Can see major memories left in an object by touching them
Background: Alyssa is a high school student teacher. She never had any problems with her power before until she touched a quilt left by her grandmother to her. It took her back to when she was making the quilt with her grandmother. Something important happened then but she had forgotten and she could never see that memory again. Alyssa shrugged the missing feeling off a while back.

Now she works as a high school student teacher.

Name: Nina DiSanto
Age: 16
Nationality: Italian-American
Power: Manipulation over water
Background: With the exception of her oldest brother, Nina and her two brothers were the first of their family to be born and raised in the United States. Nina and her family have blended in American society well, but without losing their cultural identity. With the exception of the cultural hurtles as a small child, Nina has lived a fairly normal life. She blended in with her classmates, became involved in school, and if it weren't for her brothers, getting boys to notice her was never an issue either.

However, something odd was evident about the girl when she nearly drowned as a small child. Unfortunately, Nina has no recollection of the event, and the only bystander was her oldest brother, who has not said a word to anyone about the event...until now...

Now that I can finally write this without fear of the power going out or the WiFi dying mid-post, I'll just put in that I don't RP much these days, but I'll give this a try.

Also, how far is "several years" past the show's timeline? I wrote in a few things that are somewhat timely, though it can work with a few adjustments.


Name: Cally Roxton : Cally is short for Callisto (as in the Greek myth and not in association with Xena or the X-Men 'verse), and while some call her Cally to feel a connection with her, others begrudgingly call her Callisto in full out of formality or in that they can never seem to reach a comfort level with her.

Age: Unknown, though it's probably on record somewhere : She's just lost track. For the RP's sake she's anywhere from 24 to 29, though some might confuse her for a teenager.

Nationality: Half Asian (Filipino), half Caucasian : Cally appears more Caucasian, however, upon closer inspection of the eyes and other features, it's hard to actually place her true nationality without asking. She is a U.S. citizen.

Power: Manifesting her imagination. Unlike the show's Candice or X-Men's Mystique who both change forms or create illusions that dissipate upon their losing consciousness/dying, Cally's mental creations are fully brought into existence and can be taken out just as quickly. Simply put, whatever Cally imagines becomes real.

Background: Orphaned early in life (Around 5 years old), Cally's father was a liberal senator and presidential hopeful. Both he and his wife were found murdered in a hotel room in Beijing during an international trip that a few U.S. representatives, including the vice president, were taking in order to continue friendly relations with other world leaders (assuming the world is somewhat shaken up due to its being imperiled a few times within the original "Heroes" storyline). Cally was taken in by her mother's father, Teofilo, whom having been a guerrilla in WWII during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines along with being a certified genius in physics and engineering, begins instructing an impressionable Cally in the ways of the world by training her in martial arts, survival techniques, and guerrilla warfare. Cally takes the lessons as a means of growing stronger and one day being able to track down her parents' killer(s).

Cally's first experience with her power, that she can remember, came shortly after she was left with her grandfather. She awoke in the middle of the night thinking she heard her mother calling her to breakfast. Walking into the kitchen she finds a woman at the stove, serving up a large stack of pancakes. When the woman turns to the child, Cally realizes, tears streaming down her face, that it is her mother! Running to the woman, hugging her and screaming her joy, Cally relates to her mother the "nightmare" she had about her parents dying and so on, as the woman looks at her daughter confused, sits her at the table and serves her some of the pancakes. Through a short discussion with her mother, and remembering that she's at her grandfather's house at 3 in the morning, eating pancakes with a woman who barely remembers anything about herself, Cally realizes that the woman isn't really her mother. Screaming her distaste, a vortex opens up, sucking the Mrs. Roxton clone into it and out of Cally's frame of existence (though for all we know, the woman is still alive in a parallel universe). It's from this point on that Cally never tries to make her parents live again using her power and she tries to be careful with what she dreams into reality whilst sleeping.

Teofilo, discovering Cally has a "gift," helps her hone the power by teaching her concentration techniques, mental control over what she makes real, and other methods to help her polish her "God-sent" talent. Little to Cally's realization or understanding, her grandfather was waiting for this day to come, expecting it when she'd go through puberty as when powers usually become apparent, but he suspects the traumatizing event of her parents dying as a trigger for the early arrival.

Maintaining a personal vendetta against her parents' murderer(s), and allowing her emotions to harden over the years, Cally goes on to learn more about the world of espionage and assassins, becoming a top-rated contracted killer herself.

Cally also becomes somewhat bored with her power in that when using it, nothing is a challenge any longer. If she ever needs money she can make the sky rain no-limit credit cards. If she wants someone dead, she could always simply will it so. It is with all of this regarded that Cally prefers doing many things manually without "cheating" at it too much.

To clarify: This will be in 2009-10. Sylar, Peter, HRG, Adam, Claire, and MOST others from the story are dead. The Company is still operating, however. Unless previously put onto the side of the Company, you will be (at the moment) unaffiliated.

So no one starts out in the Company, they're recruited as the RP goes?

The Company is an organization that captures, trains, contains, even destroys dangerous people with abilities. Where I am (just starting the second season) it's not quite clear whether they are good or bad just because of the format of the show, and how it deals with moral grey zones. If you wish, check out wikipedia.

Pretty much as FX/Super Hiro said, the Company's motives aren't exactly clear. They want to believe that they're good and doing the right thing, but characters like Noah Bennet (HRG) who used to work for the Company have come to believe that it's all a lie.

If you need a comparison, think of how in X-Men Xavier finds other mutants using Cerebro, seeking out ones who are just discovering their power and aren't sure how to use it themselves or are too dangerous to themselves and other people, so he goes out and brings the X-Men with him to gather up the dangerous ones, bring them back to his institution, teach them how to use their power, and then recruit them into the X-Men after they've worked it out.

Some in the Company believe it's a good organization that only doing what Xavier does, problem is they don't exactly let some people go and they keep them as prisoners.

Heroes, in many ways, is X-Men meets the X-Files.


For further, more in-depth explanation: SPOILER WARNING! Only continue if you don't want to find out for yourself watching the series!!


Again, SPOILER WARNING


The first season explained regarding the Company and if you'd consider them good or evil:

Spoiler:
Bennet, who at the time worked for the Company and who's Claire's foster father, adopted Claire after she was left with him by the Company with them saying that if and when her powers manifest to let them know so they can take her.

In the meantime, Bennet seeks out people like Matt (mind reader), Isaac (paints the future), Nathan (flying politician), Ted (human atomic bomb), and other such characters within the series with his partner, the Haitian (stifles others from using their powers and can erase memories). Bennet's cover is that he's a "paper salesman" for Primatech Paper. Primatech was often a holding cell for some of the characters when they were abducted in the first season.

Typically when the Company sends out agents, they send them in pairs--one person an ordinary human, the other has powers. Bennet's original partner, Claude (power of invisibility), was "killed off" by the Company in that Bennet was instructed to kill him, but right after shooting him Claude went invisible and got away only to show up in the series to teach Peter how to hone his own power (a story for another time). I can't remember if the Company wanted Claude dead because they felt he was going rogue or if he knew too much.

Moving on, Sylar (power to know what's wrong with things, how to fix them and apparently takes others' powers by absorbing their brains somehow. Seriously no one knows or is sure what he does with brains when he gets them or how he absorbs the power, so that part's still a mystery) was captured by the Company after he nearly tried to kill Claire at her Homecoming. The intent of the Company was to monitor him and keep him contained, however, he escaped (another story for later). Sylar's responsible for the death of several characters and many who were on the show for barely even an episode.

Among the more positive things, they managed to get Isaac to clean up his drug habit and taught him that he doesn't need to use heroin to paint the future.

The major storyline of which the Company was tied last season was in the grim future of much of New York blowing up in a mysterious atomic explosion. As it turned out, Linderman (power to heal other organisms) who's an older associate of the Company which he described as being founded to save the world using the people who have powers to help all those who don't have any, was plotting for New York to explode in that those who survived would mourn, but then become united as a force to be reckoned with. Nathan who would have, at the time, been an elected official who could ease the pain of the mourning city would be regarded as a hero and then be elected to the presidency--if the plans went off without a hitch.

In a way, the Company wanted New York to blow up for the good of people coming together and becoming a unified nation (think how after 9/11 people were suddenly ridiculously patriotic and seemingly racism and other things halted because people united against the terrorists and so on). This story was actually lifted from Alan Moore's Watchman. Seriously, read it. It's AMAZING and it's going to be a movie soon.

If I missed anything since I'm just writing this all off the the top of my head, someone please add.

It's because he was leaking information

I was thinking that it was just like it. Maybe not lifted, but they are definitely similar. Besides no one get's exploded... well... Peter... but not the same thing.

Yeah as I re-read my words, I meant to say it was more of a likeness than a blatant stealing as it might sound when reading over it. Moore might have inspired them, but it wasn't just flat out lifted from his work.

That'd be me

*patiently awaits cheers marking his return to RP*

Name: Koan Tathata
Age: 22
Nationality: Chinese-American
Power: None discovered as of yet.
Background: To say that Koan's birth parents were eccentric, would be quite the understatement. His parents were in their their forties when he was born, and they never lost sight of their strong liberal beliefs in free love, peace for all, and no contraception. Koan would be their 19th child. Many of whom, in the practices of free love, are of different nationalities, and there are a few illegitimate children roaming around the house from the father's exploits. Koan would have grown up in a home filled with children, poverty, and sharing. Instead, his parents were unable to support more than they already had, troubling times indeed, and they turned away their newborn, giving him to Koan's legitimate father, A Buddhist monk, whom took Koan safely away to the monastery he was raised in. The monk would have been disgraced had any known of his unsavory act, so he brought the child as one he 'found' on his recent pilgrimage.

Koan was trained to be a monk, taught many different manners of focus, and the beliefs of Buddhism. His training went well, he was one of the best in the monastery at his martial arts training, he was a great philosopher, and he was idolized by his peers. Until one day, his actions managed to result in the death of a friend, a revelation of his birth to him, and an exile from the order. Though Koan believes he is innocent of what happened, it has been described as "horrific," "tragic," as well as a "disgrace to the order." Koan returned to his country of birth, and lived as a janitor at a local school, spending his nights filled with meditation.

In some Buddhist monasteries, they did have spare rooms set about for the monks to have intercourse with local women as they saw sex as a spiritual act.

Just sayin'.

So in working out my character a bit more with Cairoi, we've made it so that Cally's power involves having to imagine everything entirely. Example: If she simply creates a bird, it could come out resembling a bird, but it wouldn't have any internal organs or anything of that nature so she has to think of every detail which as one would imagine could get pretty exhausting.

She trains herself to think of the basics and more significant parts very quickly, but otherwise she only uses the power when necessary or when the situation isn't crucial.

Hence, this should cut down on the idea that my character can just god-mod whenever she feels like it.

I can truly say I did not know that Rogue, but still, my character was born in America, it'd be tough for his momma to go over to China with 18 other kids in the house, just to have sex with a monk. XD

But neat fact nonetheless.

Oh, I'm sorry I called you a jerk FX, I was joking...dick. XD

Yeah, the whole notion of sex being a spiritual act wasn't as much of a commonly held belief as the idea that sex is a distraction from enlightenment and so on and so forth. Celibacy is definitely the more thoroughly accepted mantra.
