Identity: Public.

Date of Birth: February 29th, 1992
Age: 16

Group Affiliation: None.
Eruption: Self Erupted
Date of Eruption: March 24th, 2008
Height: 5 feet and 9 inches
Weight: 140 lbs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blonde, straight and long.

Distinguishing Marks: Contessa’s accident left her severely burned and scarred: so much so that the healing process literally fused three of the fingers on her left hand together (the pinky, ring and middle). Since her eruption all her scars have disappeared and she now has perfectly lovely and fully functional fingers on each hand, however it’s noticeable that she tends to keep those three fingers together unless she consciously prevents herself from doing so.

Strength Level: The upper limits of her strength have yet to be tested.

Known Quantum Powers: Contessa Danae possesses the quantum ability to create identical physical duplicates of herself. It is not yet known precisely how Contessa’s cloning abilities work, although scientists suspect some form spatial manipulation may be involved, as she does not appear to be transmuting nearby elements into her likeness, they simply appear in a flicker of golden motes.

Distance and gravity seem to be under her control as well, however she refused to demonstrate these talents for research teams. It is known however that she is able to anchor herself and not be moved unless she desires to be. It’s speculated that this some sort of spatial manipulation that roots her to a specific point.

Abilities/Special Skills: Contessa is blessed with an incredible intellect. Even long before her eruption she possessed an I.Q. well surpassing most people her age.

Personality: Contessa is fun. She always seems happy, giddy, and always ready to rush out into the world and have the best time life has to offer her. Unfortunately she suffers from a social anxiety disorder that stems from years of people treating her badly and self-induced solitude. She is prone to extreme worry even to the point of making herself sick when the prospect of having to deal with other people becomes a possibility.

She is resolute and determined to overcome this, but as of yet has been unsuccessful. Her lack of real social experience has left her with little skill in social endeavors and she continuously embarrasses herself, which only serves to reinforce her anxiety even more.

She is a complete nerd in every sense of the word, surrounding herself with everything imaginable to help reinforce an imaginary life for herself. Comic books, fantasy novels, computer games, sci-fi and fantasy movies are all her tools to escape from a world of cruelty and embarrassment.

History: Contessa Danae was born in Van Buren, Michigan where she lived with her parents Wanda and Peter. One late winter evening the Danae home caught fire and the family lost everything. In the blaze two year old Contessa suffered severe burns across more than sixty percent of her body.

The years that followed were filled with painful physical therapy and medical treatments. The child spent more time with tears on her face than should ever be experienced. The poor child was melted flesh pulled taught over a human frame, an ugly vision that she would have to live with her whole life. As time passed her skin healed as best it could but the scarring was always a constant painful reminder of her accident.

Her parents tried to make her life as comfortable as possible, like any loving parents would. They tried sending her to public schools, hoping she could find normal children her age to be friends with, but what she was shown was how harsh and vulgar small innocent minds can be. Contessa was called names, picked on, and treated with cruel intentions that for some odd law of the universe only the innocent are capable of.

The emotional stress was more then parents could take and eventually they divorced for reasons unknown to Contessa. They claimed they fell out of love but she never believed it for a second. Afterwards it didn’t take long before she regressed into her own little world, refusing to leave her room and drifting away into a world of books, games, and fantasy reality. Hours spent on her computer and weeks buried in mounds of books slowly shaped her mind into a keen tool housed within an innocent but depressed frame.

As she grew older the solitude wasn’t enough. She would watch the ‘normal’ kids and teens in her neighborhood from out her window. They played in the snow, held hands with their spring crushes. During puberty her depression became more and more difficult to deal with. As she developed into young adulthood the reality she had lived with her whole life seemed to come brutally into focus; she would never be beautiful. In a world that is hung up on appearances and glamour that truth can open a young mind and deliver a shattering blow.

Contessa believes that her life long wish of being beautiful and wanting to live a normal life has finally come true. With each passing day however she realizes that her life will forever be far from normal, but she is trying her best to have a greatest time she can to make up for all the days she lost.

Powers



Polyappearance 2
(Clone, Level 3)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Effect: By focusing with her node and warping space she is currently occupying, Contessa can permit herself to be present in the same location multiple times. In a flicker of golden motes and a slight distortion in the atmosphere, several copies of Contessa will appear. The copies are identical to her in all respects. Her current Clone Cap is 8.

Multi-Spatial Perception 1
(ESP, Level 2)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Effect: Contessa is able to extend her perceptions beyond their normal capabilities. This allows her to see and hear, but not interact at great distances.

Warp and Weft 3
(Gravity Manipulation, Level 3)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Techniques Gravitokinesis
Effect: I can’t think of anything really interesting to put here… I’m all out of techno-babble.

Slack Jawed & Bug Eyed 1
(Boost (Appearance), Level 2)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: Uncontrolled (Power activates on it’s own when Contessa is flustered, nervous, or feeling sociably uncomfortable), Gradual Increase (When activated the powers effects are not applied immediately. Dots gained in appearance are added at random).
Effect: Contessa is a classic case of ‘careful what you wish for’. Although she denies it, Contessa secretly wanted beauty and popularity over all other things in life. While it may be understandable for a person who grew up in situation to desire these things her selfish thoughts gave rise to a powerful ‘aberration’ during her eruption.

When she is in situations where she feels sociably uncomfortable Boost slowly begins to pump more dots into her appearance making her more noticeable and desired. This reflects Contessa’s jaded view that only pretty people are popular while less attractive people are shunned. Although this is not really what she wanted per se, her eruption took her latent deep seated thoughts and made them a reality, turning her into something she hated the most yet always wished she could be: the most beautiful and most popular.

Woooooosh! 1
(Flight, Level 2)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Effect: With a more direct and focused control of gravity Contessa is able to fly at incredibly high speeds.

Co-Location 1
(Warp, Level 3)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Effect: Contessa is a master of the art of connections, the ties between things, and the illusion of distance. By reaching out to a far away place she may bring that place to her folding the two points together that matter most on a long journey: the beginning, and the end. The result is an instantaneous method of travel.

Bastion of Virtue 5
(Psychic Shield, Level 1)
Extras: None
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Effect: Contessa is quite the innocent idealist and very set in her ways. Attempts to deviate her from her upbringing of only wishing for people to treat others with a level of decency and kindness she never received is difficult to say the least. There are often times when she just doesn't understand why people act the way they do.

Merits: Sexy (1pt)
Flaws: Severe Pyrophobia - Contessa does not enjoy being in the presence of open flame. A match, a lighter, or even a stove is enough for her to shirk away and feel uncomfortable. If the flame is too large (campfire, BBQ Grill) she will leave the area and go somewhere where she can not see it. If threatened or teased with fire her heart rate will increase and she'll start to suffer from minor symptoms of shock as her mind replays the years of pain and torture she suffered. If she can not escape an area of fire (like trapped in a building, or cornered by idiots harassing her with fire) she will automatically lose one point of willpower per turn and collapse into gibbering madness and tears. If her willpower runs dry she will start suffering phantom bashing damage (1 box per turn) if she's exposed for too long. If not removed from the cause of her fear before she runs out of phantom bashing health levels Contessa will die from shock. With her current stats Contessa can survive her fear for a 1:36.(0pt)

Thanks to her nova enhancements she's almost immune to natural fire and her body doesn't burn or scar anymore. She's not willing to put it to the test though.

Willpower: 4
Quantum: 5
Quantum Pool: 30
Aberrations: None
Nova Points: 58/58

Experience Points: 5/81
Expenditures: Mega-Intelligence +2 (15), Mega-Stamina +1 (10), Eidetic Memory (5), Enhanced Memory (5), Linguistics Genius (5), Mathematical Savant (5), Gravity Manipulation +2 (21), Clone +1 (7)

Real Name: Summer Autumn Astovik

Nicknames: Usually “bitch”.

Identity: Public

Aliases: Solstice

Place of birth: New York

Age: 16

Marital Status: Single

Known Relatives: Bianca Astovik (mother) and Alistair Astovik (father)

Allegiance: Project Utopia

Eruption: Exposure to elements.

Height: 5 foot 7 inches tall

Weight: 122 lbs.

Eyes: Blue

Hair: Frosty Blue, straight and long

Known Quantum Powers: Solstice is a bodymorpher. Currently she can assume the form of living woman wreathed in flame appearing like elementals from myth, or a smoothly polished woman of crystal clear ice, her hair becoming filaments of flexible chilled water that bend and dance light off surfaces.

While in either form she becomes capable of projecting a beam of pure energy that corresponds with the form she currently wears. No matter what form she assumes, whether she be morphed or no, she appears able to convert ambient quantum energy into either fire of cold at her whim.

Abilities/Special Skills: Attitude, snotty comments, arrogance, and shopping.

Personality: Many would say that hell incarnate would be to be locked up in a room with Summer Astovik. Known for having the largest chip on her shoulder imaginable, her venomous and sarcastic nature coupled with the perverse pleasure she gets out of putting people down are just a few of the facets of her personality that have made her such a universally disliked individual. The ironic part is that she likes to be around people, whether they like her or not.

Birth Name: Warren Verona
Mutant Name: Revenant
Identity: Secret
Nick Names: None (that are spoken to his face)
Aliases: Warren Covelli
Occupation: Revenant is unemployed; he spends all his time wandering from place to place.
Legal Status: Warren has a criminal record for several counts of assault and vagrancy.
Marital Status: Single
Known Relatives: None known.
Group Affiliation: none
Concept: Loner Anti-Hero
Nature: Survivor
Origin: Warren was born an aberrant, his powers developed suddenly one night when his mother kissed him goodnight and he drained away her life force.
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Ethnic Background: Warren favors his Mediterranean heritage (Italian possibly, with some Greek or Spanish)
Nationality: American
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 185lbs
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Black
Handedness: Left
Distinguishing Marks: Warren has several scars on his body in no discernible order save for several running down the base of his spine. He has a faded barcode tattooed along the width of his right wrist.
General Appearance: A handsome young man with shoulder length hair just long enough to put in a small pony to keep it out of his eyes. Chiselled and rugged looking he possesses a stare and a stance that announce him as a ‘bad boy’ that every mother would urge their daughter to stay away from, but of course they’d never listen.

His superhuman fortitude grants him a nearly perfect muscle tone, while keeping his strength levels well within the human norm, if just above average. Years of running through New York City alleyways jumping and dodging debris have made him incredibly agile and dexterous to a point far beyond the human norm.
Known Powers: Revenant can, with a touch, duplicate the powers of other known aberrant or super humans. The process by which this possible is unknown and it’s speculated that he’s wanted by several agencies wanting to test this phenomenon.

Of special note, he can ‘charge’ the potential energy contained within an object and transform it into kinetic energy upon touching it. Providing he remains in contact with the object Warren may keep the charged energy stable, and even dissipate the effect harmlessly. Once an object is released from his grasp however, the energy becomes incredibly unstable resulting in a violent explosion.

It is rumored that he is capable of ‘charging’ living beings as well as objects.
Strength Level: Warren’s strength appears to be above average, but well within normal human capabilities.
Abilities/Special Skills: Warren has lived on the streets for quite some time. As a result he seems very skilled in stealth and intrusion methods, learning to quietly steal a meal when and wherever he can. Given his rough street life Revenant is a fierce brawler.
Personality: Warren always seems either angry about something or too much of a big shot to care. He honestly believes himself to be far more wizened than most others his age, thinking simply that his life experiences make him a “veteran” and therefore an expert on a good majority of subjects. He might actually right, as the boy gone through quite a bit in his life. He doesn’t stay in one place for to long and this has unfortunately made him very unlikely to form any type of lasting bonds or friendships with those he meets. In fact, he seeks to separate himself at every opportunity to prevent anyone from getting close, using harmful insults, vulgar wit, or at times, violence. He thinks that if people hate him, they’ll have no interest in him, this makes it easier on both parties when Warren finally leaves to move on to a new destination. Truth is, Warren is tired of being lonely, and he has never had a true friend, a family, or anyplace to really call “home” for more than a month or so. The paradox of Warren’s personality is that he has now ingrained his desire to force people from him and handle all his problems on his own that he cannot allow people to get close to him with out lashing out at them out of fear for this new rush of emotion. Such confrontations usually end up with the person feeling rejected or trampled on, placing Warren back at square one; alone and forced to move on.
Interests: Warren is a fitness buff and really enjoys running, weight lifting and swimming. A very intelligent man, Warren can often be seen with a book, he has found that reading helps pass the time while on a long trip. Although single, Warren is quite the woman watcher, often admiring attractive women. This is rare however since his personality quickly causes him to enrage himself with fits of self-loathing feeling that he is doomed to be single since he can never be close to someone.

Quantum Powers

Soul Steal - 2
(Quantum Imprint, Level 3)
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Extras: None
Effect: Warren may steal a targets powers and abilities. When he does this he becomes a dark reflection of the individual.

Life Leech - 1
(Quantum Vampire (Life Force), Level 2)
Strengths: None
Weaknesses: None
Extras: None
Effect: With a touch Revenant siphons the life force out of individuals and transfers that energy to himself, healing his wounds and restoring his strength.

Kinetic Charge - 2
(Energy Conversion, Level 2)
Strengths: Reduced Energy Cost (extra added w/out increasing power level)
Weaknesses: Requires Touch/Grapple (-2), Requires Ammo (-1)
Extras: Charge, Reduced Energy Cost

Effect: Warren can ‘charge’ the potential energy contained within an object and transform it into kinetic energy upon touching it. Providing he remains in contact with the object Warren may keep the charged energy stable, and even dissipate the effect harmlessly. Once an object is released from his grasp however, the energy becomes incredibly unstable resulting in a violent explosion.

This power functions like the ‘claws’ power, adding it’s rating to any object he throws or touches. This does not include melee combat (the contact against the target is not long enough to establish an unstable charge), although he may apply the effects of this power after he has started a grapple, or is grappled by another.

This damage is energy based.

Extra – Charge (For every energy point spent the power of the object thrown increases by [2]+1d10. The mutant may deliver this extra through touch, but it cannot be delivered through casual strikes. Although reduced energy cost may lower the cost of the power itself, the energy cost for charging an object cannot be reduced. The character must always spend one energy point per [2]+1d10 damage increase.)
