Hannah McKarte

A young mute with a great amount of (un)luck on her side.

0 · 163 views · located in The Castle

a character in “Abnormal”, originally authored by Byte, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description



Name
Hannah McKarte

Age
Thirteen

Gender
Female

Date of Birth
24th of April, 1999

Appearance
Hannah can be described as a small, fragile girl. Petite, if you will. She only stands at about four foot and seven inches tall, carrying a simple weight of ninety-nine pounds that can be summed up as skinny, bony or scrawny. Hannah hasn't got that worrying skeletal build, but it is clear from first glance that the girl doesn't carry much meat on those rattle-bits. Despite that, we are worried about her unhealthy, pale-toned skin. Suggest she is given more outdoor activities, might even suggest taking her training outdoors.

Her oval-shaped head is showered with a burning, crimson-red hairdo that gently drapes down to end neck-length. Hannah has never shown the need to keep it tightly-knit together, whether braided or a simple pony-tail. Rather, prefers to have it be free and loose. Her eyes are a dark tint of green, seemingly lacking in cheerful glow -- Though her demeanour does not reflect the dullness of her eyes. Other features include her turned-up nose and slightly red-tinted lips, all perfectly centred on her head.

For clothing, Hannah has shown a preference to loose clothes. Feeling more comfortable in baggy jeans and an oversized hoodie, along with sneakers for shoe-wear. The only thing Hannah seems to continuously lug around, is the red and black checker-board patterned paper-boy hat that sits loosely on top of her head.

Personality
The first thing that one would notice about Hannah is her obvious handicap. The girl is a mute, rendering any conversations with her useless, aside from body language, signs and writing notes. The latter being Hannah's most preferred method of communicating, although she has shown a willingness to use sign language with those who know it. The girl doesn't seem particularly bothered by her lack of vocal ability, but she has made it clear that making friends has deemed rather difficult.

Despite that pitfall, Hannah has shown to be an optimistic person given most situations, always willing to interact with others, and gleefully partaking in activities set up by the staff. She appears to be a bit reckless with her abilities. Part of that coming from what we think to be her urge to prove that she can control this otherwise dangerous gift. It often results in her, or anyone around her being struck with a doze of bad, or good luck. The former being more likely to be inflicted on her own luck.

Besides that, we've rarely observed Hannah to be angry, or even sad. She seems to be adapting to her new environment rather quickly, though we did spot a few troubles regarding certain rules and mandatory tasks that we've given her. Something we definitely need to talk to her about, as it is part of our program that the subjects are kept from straying on the wrong path..

Bio
Grew up in London, England as the only child of the McKarte family. Hannah has no siblings, nor any cousins. Only a select few child relatives and friends in the outside world. Parents stated that her life in school was a relatively short one because of her disability -- Hannah appears to be a mute -- and thus was taken from public school and taught at home starting at the age of seven.

Before Hannah came to us, her powers were only mildly active. As confirmed by the parents not having realised any oddities in behaviour, interaction or other major factors that may reveal the subject's powers. Actually, the reason they brought Hannah was not because of her powers, rather their concern with their daughter being Bi-curious. Parents were under the impression that we helped younglings with special needs.

Anyway, Hannah has been here for a good few months, and could be called a positive addition to our project. Of course, we will do anything in our power to guide the girl in the use of her powers, as well as teaching her how to operate in today's society with her handicap.



Power/Ability
Probability Manipulation
An ability that allows its user to control the outcome of varying situations. To put it simply, probability manipulation revolves around one thing; Luck. Now, this doesn't imply that someone could be winning the lottery, or lose all they own in mere seconds. No, that would be too simple. Probability manipulation allows its user to increase / decrease the likeliness of a certain outcome. Say, during a coin toss, the user could increase the chance of the coin falling on tails. That is not to say it will fall on said side, but it is more likely too happen.

If that is too theoretical to understand, think of it like this: Any situation has multiple factors playing in the outcome of it, probability being one of them. Someone able to manipulate that probability is just increasing or decreasing the amount said factor plays in the current situation. In basic terms, they control the chance of success, slash failure of a possible outcome.

Preferred Classes
Taking into account the nature of her abilities and that of her own, we ask that Hannah is to be assigned Math and Abnormalities Speciality. Other classes are decided on your own accord, those two are the only ones we highly recommend assigning her.

Preferred Training
Despite her handicap, Hannah appears to do well in group training. However, considering the nature of her abilities -- That is to say, its effect on Hannah's surroundings. We deem it better for her to be trained individually, or perhaps trained with a permanent partner, though we advice no more than one other person to be grouped with her.




Hannah sincerely apologizes, but she is unable to say the words. Therefore, she has written it on paper: "I am Abnormal."

So begins...

Addie slammed her palm down on the snooze button in her dorm room that she shared with Slayer, Jordyn, and Hannah. Blinking the sleep from her eyes, she looked at the blinking red numbers on her clock. 7:00am, Monday morning. Groaning, she analyzed the room as usual using her powers. Everyone was calm from sleep, just like every morning. Addie sighed and pushed away her covers, sitting up in bed and rubbing her eyes, she yawned and swung her legs over.

"Guys, it's time to get up." Addie said mid-yawn, and reached over to grab her shower supplies case. Stumbling into the bathroom, she turned on the hot water and stepped in, letting the warm water cascade down her hair and back. Sighing in happiness, Addie reached out with her only dry hand and pressed the button on her tablet that read her schedule. Her first official class was Art, after breakfast and Personal Study. Smiling, she reached for the shampoo. Addie loved her art class. Art was the one thing she could rely on to keep her own emotions in check, because she always had everyone else's pounding inside her head anyway, she couldn't let her own emotions change dramatically.

Getting out of the shower, she put on her purple sundress, turquoise cardigan, and white lace flats. It was supposed to be a nice, sunny, day and she wanted to dress for the occasion. Grabbing her tablet, she yelled out a "Showers free! I'm heading to breakfast!" Glancing at her clock, it read 8:05am. Just in time, she thought, as she closed the door behind her she felt a sudden rush of emotion sweep over her. She staggered and braced her hand against the wall, feeling dizzy from the intensity. She couldn't pinpoint where the emotion was coming from, but in the next second in went away and she felt completely normal again. Something's happening somewhere, she thought, returning to normal and walking to the cafeteria.

Grabbing a seat by the window, she ate her usual small morning meal of an apple and gazed out at the sunshine just beginning to rise above the trees.

Slayer vacated her bed, rubbing the sleep from her eyes, immediately wishing to crawl back in and be enveloped by warmth for another couple hours. Glancing at the clock, she realized that her habit of oversleeping had struck again. Slayer cursed silently and stalked over to the dorm's closet. No time to shower now.

Slipping into a black miniskirt and a frilly white blouse, she took a look in the full-length mirror against the wall. Ugh. Slayer rushed into the bathroom, not really desiring to be late for breakfast that morning. She quickly washed her pale face, wishing she could be as toned as some of the other girls. Slayer brushed her teeth and deep-red hair next while glancing back into the bedroom, trying to spot her boots and save time in the long run.

While pulling on her favorite black combat boots with the silver buckles, Slayer's hand slipped and she chipped a fingernail. "Ouch," she whispered harshly. The candle on Hannah's bedside table suddenly lit itself. "Sorry," she said, smiling softly at the quiet girl. Slayer trudged out of the dorm into the hallway, headed for the cafeteria, her stomach gurgling for food.

Still vast asleep, Hannah was rudely awakened by the scurrying about from one of the girls that were part of her assigned dorm. It was Slayer, one of the more vocal teens stuck in this castle, slash academy. Apparently she had accidentally lit the candle that stood on Hannah's end table, and apologized for it to the silent girl which woke her completely.

Eyes opened to the loud sight of everybody getting up and ready for another bland day in prisonville. Hannah nodded with a drowsy smile forming in the corners of her mouth, struggling to pull herself from her bed and getting ready to take a wake-up shower. Although...

The girl wanted to inquire Slayer about the time, but the older girl rushing out of the dorm seemed a good enough indication that time was, and always will be, too short for that.

Still drunk on a great amount of sleep, Hannah dressed herself in the only clothes that were at hand; A black hoodie along with navy-blue jeans, a pair of pink sneakers and her favourite hat. Scratching her still sleepy arms, the girl vaguely reached for her tablet and rushed down for the cafeteria. If she was quick, she could, perhaps, still digest a sandwich before the whole place was coming down...

Quickly grabbing a bite in the cafeteria, Hannah briefly glanced at the tablet. Her schedule... Err- Personal Class. Oh jolly, that meant an hour long study for... whatever. Munching on the last bit of sandwich, the girl silently walked through the castle, locating the familiar library she always preferred to study in. It wasn't quiet, well, sometimes... But the main thing were the ridiculous amount of books that they had stored in there.

Quickly twisting the knob on the door, Hannah entered the room that was decorated with a huge array of shelves, and each shelf carrying an abundance of books ready to be read and learned from.

Silently closing the door behind her, Hannah walked up to the nearest shelf, browsing through the lower shelf for something- Err, specific. She noted the conversation two other teens were having – One of them she recognized as Slayer, though the other girl was slightly hidden around the corner of the bookcase and couldn't quite make out who it was. She waved, though wasn't sure Slayer noticed it and continued her hurried browsing. Pale fingers gently slid alongside an array of books before Hannah reached out for a rather slim-looking book. Obtaining it, the muted girl quickly hurried down the path, settling near one of the desks and eagerly diving into said book.

Slayer looked to her right as the blonde girl from the window spoke to her in a friendly manner. "Hello... My name is Amelia... Need any help finding a book?"

Finally someone was speaking to her in this place. Slayer had begun to feel lonely. "Actually yes, thanks," Slayer grinned, happy to be able to finally use her voice. "I'm not entirely sure of the system in here. There's just so much to choose from." The echo created by the vastness of the library validated just how big it was.

Slayer heard the door open around the corner, Hannah appearing behind it. She glanced at the young girl from her dorm, who smiled and waved. Naturally, Slayer smiled back.

Amelia was happy to hear Slayer needed her... Amelia liked it when they said that... She felt like there was a use for her in the world. Amelia stood quietly as Slayer finished. "So you need help finding a book?" Amelia asked. Slayer turned to smile at a friend who had just entered the library. Amelia gave the girl a smile too and watched another girl appear and she waved. Guess the library was a popular place this morning?

Amelia then watched as a young boy came in. He looked about 13 and he looked like he was pretty quiet. Visions threatened to appear in her mind, of all the people in the room. Amelia winced at the mind overload and she imagined mentally pushing the thoughts out of her head and it temporarily eased her mind. Amelia watched as the boy sat at the window and she brought her attention back to the girl with red hair. The bell rang and it didn't startle Amelia... She knew it was coming.. One of the perks of Precognition. No surprises. "Oh... I have to go.." Amelia said to the girl.. She'd never even learned her name. "I'll see you around..." Amelia said, leaving without answers. Amelia walked out of the Library and headed to Art Class.

Reading the Math book that she had grabbed from the shelf, Hannah began scribbling down some of the problems on a separate paper. Probability questions mostly, since those were, ironically, her favourite ones. The girl always enjoyed the random outcome of these things, never knowing what was to be the end result. Although, with her powers... The surprise was much less a- Surprise.

β€œHi, Hannah.”

The girl looked from her study, smiling as she nodded at Jordyn. Like with the other children, Hannah did not know much about her or any of her room-mates. Well, besides the obvious things, of course. Which wasn't much, just a few standard character traits that Hannah managed to observe.

Continuing her work, the girl was once again approached by someone though did not pay much attention other than smiling as the other girl sat down opposite of her. Hannah had a hard time communicating, as it always seemed a lost cause with those who do talk. Maybe-

*Riiing!*

Hannah quickly returned her left hand to her writing block, head lowered as she had yet again failed to make contact. The bell rang, signalling for most people to head for their next class. Sadly, the blonde-haired girl was one of them. See you around, she had said. The young girl didn't reply, just kept on being embarrassed by her failure of trying to make friends.

With most of them leaving the library – Which Hannah now only found out were... many – the girl looked about as if she wanted to sit with someone. Jordyn still hadn't left, what was she studying? Never mind, she was already approached by another; Adelaide, another room-mate. Shaking her head, Hannah continued her Math study.

Closing the book and returning it to its respective shelf, Hannah smiled at her accomplished work. It wasn't much, but she always felt so satisfied when a Math problem had been solved. They never seemed to bore her, not like most other subjects.

Packing her luggage, surprisingly just her tablet and writing block, the mute girl looked about as her gaze once again fell on Jordyn. She was alone, too, and- It was almost lunch time.

Quick! Now is your chance!

Gathering up all the courage she could muster, Hannah nervously approached her room-mate, tugging the other girl's shirt to get their attention. Whether she had gotten Jordyn's attention or not, the red-haired girl quickly made a few signals through signing, her pale fingers pointing back and forth between herself and Jordyn as she also tapped her right wrist and made an inquiry about lunch-break.

To sum it up, Hannah tried to ask Jordyn if she wanted to eat lunch together. Although, if one wasn't familiar – Or even used to Hannah's hurried signing, they might not get it the first time around. The quiet Brit could've slowed down a bit, but interaction with others wasn't her... most favoured activity. Still, her continuous signing may eventually ring a bell... She hoped.

Well, Jordyn may not have understood that message Hannah was trying to bring across, but the end result was the same. The girl nodded as it she was asked the same thing- Or did Jordyn get it after all? Anyway, Hannah gladly accepted the invitation, smiling widely as she found herself being guided to the cafeteria.

Mission friendship: Accomplished. Or, well, they weren't friends yet, obviously, but Hannah could only think one step at a time with things like this. Because, maybe they were friends! They were, right? Friends eat lunch together, share a room together- Okay that last one was just purely random as far as assigning dorms go, but the point remained.

Today was a good enough day. She hadn't managed to cross paths with lady luck's bad side, yet. Well, there was that bit with the books going haywire and that jazz, but that seemed to resolve itself rather quickly. Who could've cause it anyway? Powers were varied, and Hannah wondered if someone could command books to do... stuff.

Shrugging lightly, Hannah continued walking with Jordyn to the cafeteria. On arrival, she didn't hesitate to drop her luggage on one of the tables to 'reserve' it for herself and Jordyn.

After browsing the possible meals, Hannah settled on a cheese & ham toast, along with an apple for them vitamin Cs and just plain water for a drink.

Seating herself on the 'reserved' table, the quiet girl began scribbling on a piece of paper she had ripped from her writing block, gently shoving it in Jordyn's direction as it read; Flying Books?

Hannah had grown curious about the reason for that, flesh-eating book attack. Not that they had done anything to her, apart from nibbling at her ankles, but it'd be nice to have something make sense in this dump.

Slayer decided to go through the lunch line before choosing a table at which to sit. She appreciated the cafeteria's food immensely. Back at home her brother never made her food, she'd always had to fend for herself. Whether that meant doing her own grocery shopping or picking up some fast food, she was sick of all the junk food she'd had to endure. It had always made her feel bloated. At least this school had health standards.

Even so, she didn't pay much attention to what she grabbed and threw on her tray, she was more concerned about who wouldn't mind her sitting at their table. Slayer scanned the eating area as she went through the line. There were Hannah and Jordyn, two of her roommates. There was Amelia, the blonde girl from the library and her art class. She was with some other, older-looking guy. Better not impose on that, Slayer thought to herself jokingly. And then there were two other boys she didn't know all that well either. Slayer figured that Jordyn and Hannah would be her best bet until she got to know some of the others. She didn't know how well they liked her as Slayer was probably one of the most talkative of the students there. But she certainly wasn't going to sit alone for another hour.

Slayer approached the table with her tray of food and sat down without waiting for an invitation. "Hey guys," she greeted cheerily. "How have your days been so far?"

Hannah listened to Jordyn's reply as she cut her apple into smaller chunks, smiling at the other girl's reply. Sounded like a fun and interesting ability. Useful, too, unlike her own power which was rather... Specific.

The remainder of their talk was played in the silent girl's head, wondering what else there was to talk about. Until-

β€œHey guys, how have your days been so far?”

Shocked at the sudden question, Hannah flinched as the knife shifted slightly without her consent and left a tiny cut on her left index finger. On instinct, the girl let loose of the red fruit, which broke into half as it made contact with the table, and brought her finger to her lips softly nibbling to remove the burning pain that was running through the region around the cut.

Clumsy, one could say, although Hannah knew exactly what caused it. Lady luck had decided to play around with the silent girl yet again.

Taking a second glance, Hannah was relieved to see it was not all that severe. Good, she really had no intention of hurrying for the school nurse or whatever. With that little accident over with, the red-haired girl turned to Slayer, managing a smile and a quick wave of her free hand before signing that, up until now, her day was pretty relaxed. Having spend her time studying.

Again, the conversation was brief. The bell had a tendency to interrupt Hannah's social life when it was turning for the better, didn't it? Tapping her tablet, the girl noted that Study Hall was next. Off to the library, again. She rolled her eyes, mentally muttering to herself something about better having stayed there.

Quickly finishing the last of her lunch, Hannah grabbed her luggage, waiting if the others were ready to go as well.

The two girls didn't seem to have any objections to Slayer plopping down at their table. She thought it was nice of them to let her. Back at her old school, a lot of girls didn't like Slayer. She didn't know if it was because she talked too much or too loud or if they were jealous or what. Slayer didn't know what about her they could possibly be jealous of.

Hannah seemed startled as she jumped a little, and accidentally bumping a knife and dropping her apple. Whoops. She kept forgetting that Hannah was the opposite of her in the aspect of speaking. Slayer hadn't meant to scare her. But when Hannah waved to indicate that her day had been okay so far, Slayer smiled in relief and continued eating. She was glad.

"Oh, you know, the usual," Slayer replied to Jordyn's question. "Boring, lonely, fine overall though. Hey, you guys were just in the library, right? What was up with those flying ghost books? I've heard before that you can fight effectively with words, but that was a bit ridiculous."

As the time ticked by, Slayer glanced at her tablet to make sure of her next class, which was a study hall. So much study time. Better than actual class, she figured.

Jordyn saw Hannah knick herself. "Are you okay, Hannah?" she asked.

Then, Slayer replied to Jordyn's first question.
"Oh, you know, the usual. Boring, lonely, fine overall though. Hey, you guys were just in the library, right? What was up with those flying ghost books? I've heard before that you can fight effectively with words, but that was a bit ridiculous."
At this, Jordyn started cracking up. The laughter just kept coming and wouldn't stop, but it felt good. Before today, it had been a long time since Jordyn last laughed. Finally, the laughter died down and she finished her food before replying. "We were literally jus talking about that."

When everyone was done, Jordyn stood up, checking the time. "Guys, it's time for Study Hall," she cheered. Study Hall was always amussing to her, especially when she put people to sleep. Not to be mean or anything of course. The humor she got from it was just too good to pass up. Making her way to the trash can, she threw out her trash and went back to the other girls, a small smile on her face. She slung her bag back over her shoulder, then turned to Slayer and Hannah, asking, "You guys ready to go?"


Eventually they got to the Library for Study Hall, and Jordyn went to a random table near Serena and Addie. Jordyn didn't the name of the girl Addie was talking to, but she knew they had Physical Activity and Training together. Shrugging, she put her bag on the floor and sat down, taking out the her science book.

At Slayer's thoughts on the whole book incident, Hannah managed to crack an amused smile. Placing a hand in frotn of her mouth, as if to prevent herself from giggling out loud. She would giggle, but fate and impairment degreed that she couldn't. Though it was clear that she, too, found it an amusing comment.

As soon as the three of them had packed their bags and finished their lunch, Hannah quickly tailed Jordyn and Slayer on their way to the library. Smiling all the way, though the mute girl did make a brief mention, simply showing her index-finger, to tell she was okay.

She hoped, however, that this would be the only time her powers plotted against their user...

As they all arrived at the library, Hannah didn't hesitate a second to seat with Jordyn, opening her writing block and tablet to continue where she left off. Not that there were many Math problems left to solve, but the red-haired girl wanted to master that one curious equation she had read about.

Slayer followed Jordyn to the library, Hannah following close behind. These girls were a bit younger than her, Hannah by three years, but Slayer didn't care at all. It had already proven tough to make friends in this place, and these two seemed to accept her so quickly.

Once in the library, Slayer decided to sit with Hannah and Jordyn, and their other roommate Addie. Things were finally beginning to look less lonely. Of course, this was the library, let alone study hall, so Slayer couldn't exactly blab on and on to her friends. She wouldn't know what to talk about anyway. Life had been pretty uneventful lately, what with being trapped in this prison of sorts.

Instead, Slayer pulled out her art history book and commenced reading. Although, it was difficult to focus on the reading when there were beautiful pictures of prints, paintings, ceramics, and drawings on every page to look at. Short attention span led Slayer to pull out her own piece of paper and begin drawing.

"I love the Tempest! That's my favorite Shakespeare piece!" Addie exclaimed.

I smiled at her, happy, then I walked over to the shelf and picked up the second copy of the Tempest. I returned to my desk and slid her the hardcover book. Most of the people here are all younger then me, by as much as 5 years, but it's good to actually hang out with some people for once, instead of studying alone. I saw her and some other girls, that I recognized as Slayer, Hannah, and Jordyn sit down around us. Once they were seated, Addie broke the silence.

"How's everyone's day going? Today seems to be going by really fast, doesn't it? I kinda like it!" she says, happily. I then reply, also with the same emotion.

"Great, I honestly can't wait for training and end of the day break. Training because I don't want another mishap like the one in Art," I laugh, "and Break, because I feel I need one, I even was so desperate for a little rest I used my lunch to take a nap."

I giggle again, then go back to my book.

Within thirty minutes Slayer had covered her paper in doodles, only realizing she had been drawing too long because she had no space left. She checked the time on her tablet, which told her five minutes to 2:00. It was almost time for training. She mentally groaned. Any setting where she was being forced to use her ability made her uncomfortable.

Slayer naturally sucked at working under pressure. She could pretty much control her power while setting fire to stationary objects, but moving objects was a different story. Being able to do so would come in handy in so many ways. But first she had to learn how to do it without also setting fire to everything in the object's path. She was just so afraid of hurting someone, or herself once again. She wished that they were all required to wear fire-retardant suits, but sadly this wasn't the case.

Hannah kindly nodded when Addie asked everyone how thier day had been going. Good so far, if you didn't count that teeny tiny accident during lunchbreak. It didn't hurt to stay optimistic. Really, being a pessimist would just make things worse, and the mute girl knew that she definitely didn't want for things to get worse.

β€œ...Plus, it's a class where you can kill things and not get yelled at.”

Came Jordyn's reply. W-what? Kill things? Hannah's jaw couldn't drop any further without touching the ground. That was just- just horrible! Why would you say such things? The girl could only hope that her roommate was... joking.

She shivered. Honestly, Hannah could never think of killing something. Especially with her powers. That was the scary part, and something that actually had her in a depressed mood for the rest of the study class.

*Ring!*

Again, that horrendous bell throwing the entire building into a mess. Within seconds, the table that Hannah had been sharing with the other girls emptied. What class? Ah, yes, training.

If she could've argued with that discussion a few minutes ago, the mute girl would've been the one to say; No, I hate training.

Training meant making use of her powers, training meant possible disaster for her, and her coach. Neither party she wished permanent harm. Lowering her head, the girl slowly gathered her stuff and headed out to her personal assigned training room. Once there, she was greeted with another staff member. Every day a new one, wasn't it? A blonde, tall man this time around. Young too. Probably new, as was evident by the fact that he didn't know Hannah at first glance. Even calling her Miss McKarte, unlike the other staff members, who simply called her by name.

Shyly nodding as a way of greeting, Hannah seated herself on the matching table and chair. She was given a memory assignment. Match the cards, one of the many basic methods that tested her ability. Oddly enough. As the young man seated opposite of the red-haired girl, Hannah watched as the man showed her one image, and she had to find the exact same one among a perfectly arranged row of flipped images.

All tablets and SmartScreens [The screens that the humans from the outside use to communicate with the abnormalities] flash on.

All schedules are now revoked. You may do whatever you like for the next 7 hours, then you are to report for lights off. Dinner will be served at the regular times, and all abnormalities must report to the Main training facility at 10am for an announcement. If you fail to show up, you'll be punished. This is extremely important, and will permanently decide your fate.

Thank you.

And all the screens flash off.
