Alright folks, the group exists. I'm a tad busy today, sadly, so I can't get ALL the threads that need to be made made. For now I've put up Nightwing in the right place and I've got the Mansion thread made up which is free for people to let their characters mingle if you all want to kick something off. I haven't firmly decided on a first mission yet though I should have something coming on that front by the weekend at the latest.
If I've talked about your character and basicall given it the thumbs up then feel free to post it over there in the Characters section and then maybe have some fun in the mansion which is essentially the Xavier School we all know and love. It just has a lot more space for people. Dormatories will be a seperate thread altogether so there's that but I don't think that matters too much.
Glad to have this off the ground. Hopefully tomorrow and Thursday I'll have the time I need to just hunker down and make the threads what need to be made.
Alrighty world, we've got hte story in motion and room for a small handful more of folks! Feel free to send a PM to me with the character sheet, toss ideas my way, or post here with what you're thinkin'!
Name: Antonia Louise "Toni" Monetti Codename: Argent Age: 20 Personality:
Argent is a fairly quiet woman who prefers to keep to herself. While she is not unfriendly, she does prefer not to be around most people. This is mostly born from a rather deep-seated insecurity with herself and fear that she might be shunned once they've learned of her true purpose.
She hardly even takes her role as a hero seriously, and as such does as she pleases making it seem more like a hobby than anything she really cares about. She does have her honor however, and she'll fight just as hard as anyone else when pushed but she displays a rather laid back, and surly attitude. She does display the drive to be a better hero, but she's fallen into habit.
Get to know her however and she's actually a fairly romantic, smart, wise-cracking, and friendly girl.
Daughter of a former U.S. Senator from New Jersey. Around the time she turned sixteen, Toni's skin gained a silver sheen to it. At a pool party for her sixteenth birthday, Toni was mysteriously teleported away. Toni, along with a few other teens, learned that they were half-alien, and their mothers were impregnated by an alien race called the H'San Natall years ago. The H'san Natall were known for impregnating alien women a conquerer race that even Darkseid avoided. The teens were part of a sleeper agent program created by the H'San Natall to defeat the super-powered beings already on Earth. She was devastated to learn this, but resolved not to be a pawn to their scemes. The others agreed and they formed a team in order to escape from the empire.
The group of teenagers escaped the aliens and returned to earth, where they found safe haven with the wealthy Loren Jupiter and his enigmatic associate, Omen. Loren decided to keep tabs on the teenagers knowing that they might still fall into the hands of the H'San Natall, but needed help in honing their abilities. Toni was given the codename Argent because of the silver energy she produced, but its nature caused Loren to try with the guardians and the Corps first.
This is when she was met with the Green Lantern Hal Jordan, but they only learned that her abilities were somewhat similar to a ring and were still growing. Believing that they were safe the team was referred to Xavier's School to allow her and the other teens a chance to learn in a safe environment and keep hold of their humanity in the event the H'San Natall returned.
Powers/Skills: Silver Plasma Energy Constructs: Argent can generate solid energy constructs out of the element of plasma in simple forms such as protective shields, ropes, daggers, and battering rams. While she can not fly, she can create slides and flying platforms to carry herself and others through the air. Her silver-colored plasma energy is said to be of a similar wavelength to the green plasma energies of a Green Lantern's ring.
Force Field: Another application of Argent's silver plasma generation is that she can create solid shields, barriers and force-fields that she can project over herself or others.
Energy Projection: On occasion she's shown the ability to project her silver plasma energy outwards to push and offensively attack opponents with whips, bursts, plasma bolts, waves, and beams of her elemental plasma energy.
Psychic Link: Argent is capable of forming a physchic bond with people allowing her to understand their emotional states, trauma, and determine their locations within a certain range though this extends the closer she is with them.
Multi-lingual: Argent can speak both English and Arabic.
I like the core of Argent but she'd have to be lightly reworked so she wasn't working with a team or anything so she could be a student. As it is we have a teacher and a co-leader besides Nightwing which is about as much as I want the team to have or feel like it can properly bear.
So just a little adjustment to age/history but otherwise she looks good at the moment.
Well I can't fully get rid of the team aspect since I want to keep her earliest history (Its kind of important and very early history) but I've adjusted it a bit. Better now?
Or did you need her to be 18?
She doesn't have to be eighteen. I'd just add something like the team she formed being found by someone (of your choice) from the Avengers/Justice League and given a chance to join the Xavier School once they were discovered.
Looks solid to me. Feel free to put her in the character subforum and write her into the initial meeting. For the sake of it we'll say she's running a little late to the team meeting (which I don't think will be too bad at all)
At this point I'm accepting pretty much exclusively canons though canons can be bent and twisted a little bit since the world is sharply different from Marvel or DCs universe by virtue of being merged.
