Xmen RPG Character and Information Thread!

Recommended Posts

Rogue

I was thinking about starting an X-men RP! Follows most of the same rules as the other RPs. You can use canon and/or custom characters! So don't be afraid to join if you've by some reason never read the comics, or watched the TV shows, or the movies.

About this RP:

Being as X-men has so many versions, we're going to go with one of the more recent, loosely basing it off of X-men evolution.

  • This RP will take place at a new branch of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters in California. Xavier's school was established to teach mutants how to control their powers. The school is located in a replica of the Xavier Mansion, is the base of operations and training site of the X-Men and the location of a school for mutant teenagers. The school's motto is "mutatis mutandis."
  • In this RPG, mutant students will be attending class in a normal High School with normal kids. The rest of the day will be spent at Xavier's school which focusses on their other...abilities. They will be dorming in the Mansion.
  • Characters in this RPG can fall under several affiliations. You can be mutant or civilian. There is also teacher and student. Furthermore there are a couple of groups that you can fall under:The X-men (good), the Brotherhood of Mutants(evil) or neutral.
  • You can have as many characters as you want as long as you can balance them all! There are also some characters that aren't in the initial plot, but you can reserve them for later.

Rules:

  • Four characters max per person. If you would like to have more than that please send me a special request, or post in this thread. Good-Bad guy ratio shouldn't exeed 2-1. Character selection is first come first serve. Other normal RP rules apply.

Locations:

  • Greendale, California
    A fictional town in southern California. Located near the ocean. Main setting for this RP.
  • Greendale High
    Local public high school where all of the student characters attend classes.
  • Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters
    The institute that acts as a boarding school/residence but is really a facade for a new X-Men training facility.
    Some features include:
    - Cerebro room
    - X-Jet hangar
    - Danger Room
    - Various monitoring/control rooms
  • The Brotherhood Dorms
    Where the evil mutants take residence. Located on 6th Street.
  • The Cove
    Local hotspot for teenagers to hangout and enjoy some refreshments. Located directly on the beach.

Characters:

The X-men/ Xavier's Students:

Teachers:

  • Cyclops - Scott Summers
    Abilities: Fires concussive force from eyes)
    Age: 19
    Bio: Scott has a strong sense of right and wrong, and would probably be described by many as a "boy scout". He is competitive and eager to assume a leadership role. His competitiveness sometimes clouds his better judgement though. Cyclops is unable to control his optic blasts while his eyes are open without the use of a special visor or glasses. Scott has a brother named Alex who he recently reunited with after believing for years that Alex died in the plane crash both were involved in. Jean Grey is the target of Scott's affection and as time go on both have grown closer together. He and Jean were chosen to open the new Academy, and raise the next group of X-men.
    Played by: DeltaRanger
  • Jean Grey
    Abilities: Telepathy, telekinsis
    Age: 19
    Bio: Jean was one of the most powerful mutants at the Institute. She is also intelligent, strong-willed and a naturally gifted athlete. She bears a crush on Scott Summers, that he shares, neither of them brave enough to tell the other. She's a brilliant girl, studying to become a doctor as she teaches at the institute.
    Played by: Rogue
  • Colossus - Piotr "Peter" Nikolaievitch Rasputin
    Abilities: Able to transform body into a form of organic metal. While armoured has superhuman strength, durability and stamina, near invulnerability to most physical attacks and some magical
    Age: 21
    Bio: Once part of Magneto's Acolytes. Peter returned home to Russia after Magneto's apparent death. He returned to join forces with the X-Men when Apocalypse attacked the Earth. After the battle, he joined Xavier's school and completed a few college-level courses. He also learned combat training from Wolverine and picked up acrobatics while training with Nightcrawler. He later moved to California with Scott, Jean and a handful of students to establish a new academy there. He is in charge to school security. In his human life, Peter tends to keep to himself. He tends to segregate himself from others at the school, feeling as though he's different from the others both for being Russian and once a member of Magneto's Acolytes. However, his fellow mutants are slowly cracking his tough emotional armour.
    Played by: Drake

Students:

  • Nightcrawler - Kurt Wagner
    Abilities: Teleportation, Enhanced night vision, Superhuman acrobat/gymnast, Prehensile tail, Ability to stick to walls, Blending into shadows. Skilled in martial arts, hand to hand combat and fencing
    Age: 17
    Archrival(s): Toad
    Bio: Nightcrawler is the joker of the X-Men. He is often in high spirits and ready to have fun. He is probably the most sensitive to the emotions and attitudes of others, even though his demonic appearance forced him to lead a relatively secluded life. After joining the Institute Professor X provided Kurt a special holographic projector so he could take on the appearance of a normal human when needed. This allowed him to attend public school and engage in other public activities without drawing unwanted attention to himself.
    Played by: Rubezia
  • Tremor - Hailey Hudson
    Abilities: Manipulation of earth and stone.
    Age: 16
    Bio: Hailey is the daughter of Canadian inventor and engineer James Hudson and, his wife, Heather McNeil Hudson. She grew up in a town outside of Toronto, Ontario. Hailey was sent to California as part of a student exchange program. Secretly, her parents sent her there to join Xavier's new school. She has short brown hair and brown eyes.
    Hailey's powers are fairly advanced for her age. They were developed and honed through training with her parents, her godfather Wolverine, and the other members of Alpha Flight.
    Played by: Drake
  • Lila Mercer
    Abilities: Electrokinesis
    Age: 16
    Bio: Lila is standoffish and isn't quite sure what to think of her abilities yet. She still feels like a freak and treats everyone just the same. However, she gets straight A's, is very good with computers, and is frequently found discovering different ways to hack the computers at the high school.
    Played by: Ayingel
  • Ghost - Chase Mitchell
    Abilities: "perception filter", enhanced perception, telepathy, can sense others' moods.
    Age: 17
    Bio: Identical twin of Danny Mitchell, he is 'immune' to Danny's abilities. His "perception filter" gives him the ability to go unnoticed--hiding in plain sight--although due to a lack of control it causes him to be unable to draw attention to himself and results in him being overlooked. The perception filter ability gives him the alternate effect of being able to see through other people's disguises and spot things others would miss easily. He is also mildly telepathic, although he hasn't had much chance to develop his abilities. His personality is somewhat self-critical, overly-sensitive and angsty ( he's emo, basically ).
    Played by: Andy

    Played by: Rogue
  • Stampede - Marcus Connor
    Abilities: Can shape-shift into any animal he has ever touched before. Has a kind of "sixth sense" for finding other mutants in proximity to himself.
    Age: 17
    Bio: Marcus is cocky and sarcastic. He knows that he's different from everyone else and feels that he's better than them. He enjoys using his powers but understands the need to keep them a secret, especially at school. He first became aware of his mutant powers, at the age of 15, while on a camping trip. Marcus got turned around in the forest and was attacked by a bear. The instant the bear touched him, Marcus became the bear. Startled by the sudden change, the animal ran off, leaving Marcus with the realization that he was something special. Since then, he has been trying to expand his abilities by finding more animals to touch and become.
    Played by: Drake
  • Fusion- Neil Travis
    Abilities: Absorbs and stores kinetic energy within his body that he then manipulate in a variety of forms.

    He has a rather outgoing personality with his friends and people he knows, but is wary of new people.
    Sean was born out of wedlock to a teenage mother on the East Coast and was quickly sent off to be raised by his grandmother and other family members.
    At a young age, he discovered his mutant abilities and yielded no self control on them, preferring to use them in private when he could and for his own purposes.
    When his grandmother discovered him one day, she quietly sent him off to Xavier's Institute, under the guise of a real boarding school. Unknown to her, Sean had escaped from the train, never making it there.
    Played by: Mara
  • Danny Mitchell
    Abilities: improved hand-eye co-ordination and strength, learns skills quickly just by watching, quick healing.
    Age: 17
    Bio: Despite being the identical twin of Chase Mitchell, he has a slightly different set of abilities and a different personality. He is 'immune' to Chase's abilities. He learns new skills quicker than most and, due to his improved hand-eye co-ordination and strength, devotes this ability to learning combat techniques, such as various martial arts and sword fighting. In contrast to his brother he is outgoing, confident, enthusiastic, and he loves a good party.

    Age: 16
    Bio: August has a head of natural blond hair and bright blue eyes. She is of medium height but on the thin side, due to her genes. She also wears clothes of the latest fashion, sometimes before they even hit shelves in Los Angeles.
    Despite her deeply preppy appearance, August is quite a shy girl. This partly because she knows that she is one of the smartest students at the local high school, and also because she doesn't feel she fits in with all the other young Greendale airheads whose parents are in the same circle as her own. Sometimes she tries to hide how smart she is because of this.
    August is a typical child of a very upper class Greendale family. She lives with her mother and stepfather, but sometimes spends a weekend with her father but tends to avoid this because she doesn't like her father's girlfriend. Generally alone when she's at home after school, she quickly finishes any homework and then hides away in her room reading.

    Bio: Dating the surfer and owner of The Cove, Kelly is a senior at the local high school. She's found out over time that she can manipulate the air and wind, and has the ability to fly.

    Played by: Tyche
  • Brett Radcliffe
    Age: 17
    Abilities: Lumokinesis (light manipulation) + invisibility
    Bio: Somewhat stuck up, Brett has the ability to manipulate light around him, and tends to use that to his advantage. Rather disdainful of people in general, he's part of an airsoft team in the area, having become a very good shot with various weapons and using his ability to manipulate light and virtually disappear to his advantage, allowing him to get things accomplished without worrying about being found out.
    Played by: Tyche
  • Catalina Santiago
    Age: 18
    Abilities: Reflexive mimicry + super speed
    Bio: Having learned from an early age that she could watch a movie and pick up moves from the actors, Catalina enjoys working on martial arts.

Non-mutants/Civilians:

  • Lance Elliot
    Age: 20
    Abilities: N/A

His parents helped him get the place started when he graduated from high school a few years back, and now that he's got everything under control, is the sole owner of the place. It has food and beverages and is just a place to hang out ? much like a coffee shop on the beach in terms of atmosphere. It's a very open place with a true beach atmosphere. He is also dating a senior in high school, Kelly Reed, a mutant. He knows and understands her powers, and readily accepts her mutant abilities, not shying away from them at all. Instead, he thinks it's cool.
    Played by: Tyche
  • Joseph Sanchez
    Abilities: N/A - civilian
    Age: 18
    Bio: A true California beach bum, he has deeply tanned skin and dark hair. Has a muscled physique developed from years as a summer lifeguard at the local beach. When not in school, he can generally be seen wandering the boardwalk with just his swimming trunks or shorts on.
    His personality is very outgoing, and he is friends/friendly with most everyone at the high school. One of his more redeeming qualities is that fact that he doesn't notice cliques, and flits between many of them, talking to his friends. But once he's in class, he becomes serious and one of the school's most studious students, not wanting to let down his mother.
    Joseph is the third son of a single mother who scrimped and saved everything she had to send her sons to the local schools a town over in Greendale, to get the best education she could pay for. In his senior year, Joseph is hoping for an academic scholarship to Stanford, or at least USC or UCLA to pursue his interest in science and medicine.

    Age: 17
    Bio: A cheerleader at the high school and is a bit of a flake. She flirts with anything that moves, and it usually gets her into trouble. She doesn't like mutants, but is pretty clueless, so what she doesn't know won't hurt her.

How are you planning to do stuff with civilians and have two different stories going on with good and bad guys, since I"m doubting they go to the same schools together?

They will all be attending the same high school. The X-men will be training separately at the Institute to hone their abilities. There is also the opportunity to start trouble about town ;)

Edited so that we can have mostly custom characters. If you want a canon character feel free to ask.

Are we limiting ourselves to just X-Men characters or should it encompass all Marvel?

If so, I might take Tony Stark/Iron Man as a cameo character that pops in from time-to-time.

Otherwise, I'm going to take Colossus. I'll write stuff up for him soon.

I think...

Chase Mitchell

Abilities: "perception filter", enhanced perception, telepathy.

Age: 17

Bio: Identical twin of Danny Mitchell. His "perception filter" gives him the ability to go unnoticed--hiding in plain sight--although due to a lack of control it causes him to be unable to draw attention to himself and results in him being overlooked. The perception filter ability gives him the alternate effect of being able to see through other people's disguises and spot things others would miss easily. He is also mildly telepathic, although he hasn't had much chance to develop his abilities. His personality is somewhat self-critical, overly-sensitive and angsty ( he's emo, basically :p ).

Danny Mitchell

Abilities: enhanced perception, improved hand-eye co-ordination and strength, learns skills relatively quickly.

Age: 17

Bio: Despite being the identical twin of Chase Mitchell, he has a slightly different set of abilities and a different personality. Due to his connection with his twin, he shares the enhanced perception ability, and can therefore see through the "perception filter". He learns new skills quicker than most and, due to his improved hand-eye co-ordination and strength, devotes this ability to learning combat techniques, such as various martial arts and sword fighting. In contrast to his brother he is outgoing, confident, enthusiastic, and he loves a good party.

I have a question.... will the X-men peeps be using their same name for the regular civilian high school, or going by aliases?

I see to remember that TV show, myself...where they went to a normal school but only saw a couple episodes. Couldn't remember if they had alias names.

Or is that optional?

I suppose I confused myself a bit, though. Thinking they had two regular sets of names, lol. :p

Are there any limits to the powers? I mean, powers they WOULDN'T have?

I shall start working on something... not sure whether I'll be civilian or mutant... or have two characters. Perhaps an undiscovered mutant, someone hiding their powers.. hm...

I think the hardest part is deciding gender. And powers. :p

Okay, here goes....

Name/Alter ego: Joseph Sanchez / N/A

Age: 18

Gender: male

Abilities: N/A

Appearance: A true California beach bum, he has deeply tanned skin and dark hair. Has a muscled physique developed from years as a summer lifeguard at the local beach. When not in school, he can generally be seen wandering the boardwalk with just his swimming trunks or shorts on.

Personality: Very outgoing and is friends/friendly with most everyone at the high school. One of his more redeeming qualities is that fact that he doesn't notice cliques, and flits between many of them, talking to his friends. But once he's in class, he becomes serious and one of the school's most studious students, not wanting to let down his mother.

Background: Joseph is the third son of a single mother who scrimped and saved everything she had to send her sons to the local high school, to get the best education she could pay for. In his senior year, Joseph is hoping for an academic scholarship to Stanford, or at least USC or UCLA to pursue his interest in science and medicine.

....

Name/Alter ego: August Buchanan / none yet

Age: 16

Gender: female

Abilities: Has a "sixth sense" perception, can sense that something is going to happen a few moments before it does. However, she can't tell exactly what the event will be, only that something, usually dangerous, is going to happen;

Healing powers, can heal any wound with her tears, upon discovering this, she was deeply disturbed and tried to hide it--the worse the wound, the more toll it takes on her body;

Enhanced reflexes, can react quite quickly to anything changing. This comes in handy with her sixth sense perception;

[perhaps others she has yet to discover]

Appearance: August has a head of natural blond hair and bright blue eyes. She is of medium height but on the thin side, due to her genes. She also wears clothes of the latest fashion, sometimes before they even hit shelves in Los Angeles.

Personality: Despite her deeply preppy appearance, August is quite a shy girl. This partly because she knows that she is one of the smartest students at the local high school, and also because she doesn't feel she fits in with all the other young Newport airheads whose parents are in the same circle as her own. Sometimes she tries to hide how smart she is because of this.

Background: August is a typical child of a Newport family. She lives with her mother and stepfather, but sometimes spends a weekend with her father but tends to avoid this because she doesn't like her father's girlfriend. Generally alone when she's at home after school, she quickly finishes any homework and then hides away in her room reading.

If these are okay, I can add them up top (unless you want to :p).

Psh. You all need some adults playing. To counter the teen-lieness of it all. ^_^

And I will have some. Soon. Once I come up with them.

Question first - can you have civilians that understand/accept/are close to mutants? Or would that just screw the whole thing up?
