"'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, 'tapping at my chamber door-
Only this, and nothing more.'"






[Name. ] Matthaus Ivano. Feel free to call me Matthaus.

[Gender. ] Male.

[Nickname. ] The Flexible One. That's my stage name. If the audience or a stranger asks for my real name I typically say it's Dexter.

[Age. ] 54 technically. But I still look like I did when I first started so I don't look too shabby for an old man.

"That I scarce was sure I heard you'- here I opened wide the door;-
Darkness there, and nothing more."






[Face Claim. ] Andrej PΓ©jic

[Height. ] 5'6

[Weight/Build. ] I am fairly small compared to a lot of the brutes here, but my act wouldn't work if I was big. I am fairly thin though that is by choice since the smaller I am the better my act looks. Again, it wouldn't work I was big in any way.

[Hair. ] Blonde. Long just the way I like it.

[Eye Colour. ] They are a shade of blue, but during my performance I put on coloured contacts to match my outfit. Usually bright colours like reds, yellows, white even, or even neon greens and blues.

[Scars/Piercings/Tattoos. ] I don't have any scars and piercings are a no go, given the fact that stretching and piercings simply don't mix. I also have no tattoos currently.

[Notable Features. ] I am fully aware that I have a very... feministic look about me. But I believe this to be a positive since it makes my act better.

[Description. ]People often recognize me as the strange one, though I have do disagree on that regards. I am not strange, I simply comprehend. But I'm definitely the shows man. I like going big and wearing the flashy clothes and having the fancy colours.

[Preferred Clothing. ] Like I said before, I am the shows men. My outfits are almost always bizarre, fancy, bright, and definitely flashy. It it isn't any one of those then I won't wear it. They tend to be full body suits that are skin tight, but I often customize them to add whatever accessories I need. I don't mind wearing other things, but anything that's not skin tight takes away from the act since it covers up the best part. Seeing me bend like a pretzel. When I'm not performing, I usually either wear my performance clothes or I wear just shorts. If it isn't my performance outfit, I hate it. Clothes bug me so I usually don't bother with the whole jeans t-shirt thing. Never have never will.





Imageβ–Œβ–Œ β–ˆ β–ˆ β–ˆ PERSONALITYImage
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore
'T is the wind and nothing more.






[Sexuality. ] Well, you'll just have to find that out for yourself now don't you?

[Oddities. ] Oh, I suppose I can go on and on and list all my abnormalities to you, but to be frank, that gets rather tiresome and I would much rather do something more productive.

[Habits. ] I practice a lot. I'm almost always practicing my act, doing warm up exercises, something to help me with my act. If I'm not practicing I'm working on the set, my outfit. So I'm constantly thinking about the show and the end product. I guess you can say that's a habit.

[Likes. ] Hm, I suppose I tell you. I like to make poems and rhymes. I recite poems all the time, when I'm working on my costum, warming up, and somtimes I'm even able to get a rhyme or two into my act. But I do have a favourite. Ever heard of The Raven?

[Dislikes. ] I don't like large people. Those are are big and bulky. It distracts me from what I'm doing and it makes me wonder how on Earth they even move.

[Fears. ] What is there to be afraid of? We only have the future ahead to look forward to.

[Hobbies. ] I recite and make poems. I sometimes sing them and turn them into song too.

Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door-
door!'
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.








[ Extreme Flexibility. ] Oh now we are getting to the fun part!I have the ability to bend my body in any way I want. Quite literally. I have had full control over my muscles, veins, and bones since I joined the circus. I can focus on just one part or many parts, it doesn't matter, I can do it. I have mastered this ability right down to the individual fibers that makes up my muscles. I can't regenerate by any means, so I can't make myself heal faster, but I can control all movement. If I wanted to, I could use my muscles to dislocate certain bones, like joints so I can bend them freely. It hurts a tad returning then back to their rightful state but that is only because I have to jolt them back into place most times. Doesn't hurt too much, but it sure grosses the audience out when they have to hear me pop it back into the place. I look forward to their gawking gazes and their loud disgusted "ews". One of the many joys of my act.

[ Stretch. ] Not only am I able to bend my body the way I want, I am also able to stretch myself further than I really am. At the maximum I can stretch up to 20 ft, but I can do this with any part of my body. I can do it with limbs, my face, my skin, anything really.




Imageβ–Œ β–Œ β–ˆ β–ˆ β–ˆ HISTORY Image
Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my
door!'
Quoth the Raven, 'Nevermore.'







[ History. ] I don't often care to revisit the past but as you can imagine, I wasn't the type of person that would fit in. Even in elementary school, a horrible place, I was always the one to overdo the project and of course, because of my looks, I was picked on. It never bothered me much however, but I ran away in search of a better future. I didn't want to grow up and work in a suit and a tie. I wanted to perform and dazzle. I found the circus not long after I left and, although they didn't need a performer at that time, I helped work the ticket booths and cleaned up after the shows. Passed out peanuts and food and stuff. But when I was 24... let's say some things went down hill and in the end I became the Flexible One. I've been performing here ever since.

[ The Powerful One. ] Oh the Powerful one. What an odd relationship we have. It’s a love/hate relationship more than anything else I think. I won't go into too much detail but there are times where it seems like we hate each others guts but in the end it's not really like that. It's a long story.

[ The Hot One. ] Ah yes, the elemental duo. It’s rather hard to explain how I feel about them, as it is for every really. You can’t really explain emotion, you have to show it. I suppose I can say that I like picking on him. But then again, I do that to everyone.

[ The Regenerating One. ] I respect the Regenerative One because he is similar to me some aspects. I believe if I wasn't the Flexible one that I would have chosen to be the Regenerative one. So the fact that he now has the ability gives him high standards.

[ The Telekinetic One. ] I feel like the Telekinetic one is trying to knock off some other ability. Don’t take it personally but I feel like the act is rather pointless since the same things he does in his act can easily be done with another. The fact he doesn't touch it doesn't make a difference.

[ The Strong One. ] The strong one... I would like to think that he is my alter ego. He is pretty much the exact opposite of me in almost every aspect of the word. He's big, I'm small, he looks like a man, I look like a woman. His ability is bold, mine is more subtle. Again, it's a love/hate relationship.

[ The Cold One. ] Basically the same thing as the Hot one.

[ The Colorful One. ] I really like the colourful one actually. It might not be the most spectacular ability in the world, but I actually really do like it. It’s strange, different, and I don’t even know for sure. There is just something about it.

[ The Influential One. ]Oh the Influential one. So many conflicts. I can’t even begin to count how many times we have fought one another. But I can’t seem to stop. It’s like an addiction. Fighting with her is just so intriguing that it’s hard not to.

[ The Wild and Invisible One. ] The newcomers, eh? Well, let's just say that I don't think they realize that I am a man yet. So there is going to be some fun when I see them.

[Face Claim. ] Andrej PΓ©jic

[Height. ] 5'6

[Weight/Build. ] Much like all the other mice within the facility I am thin to a fault. I'm not the biggest around but I guarantee you I am the smartest.

[Hair. ] Blonde. Long just the way I like it. It is turning white though, but I don't mind. I don't mind many things.

[Eye Colour. ] They change, quite frequently. For often than you think. Every time I blink, it shifts to a different colour. My eyes generally have teh same gold rings around them however, but the hue in the rest of the iris changes.

[Scars/Piercings/Tattoos. ] I have just about as many scars as the others held within these cells, but I assure you they are for entirely different reasons. I have my cell number and ID number branded, one on each wrist. It's fun watching it move when I do though. Like many others I have a disabling microchip on the nap of my neck. Inside, of course. They don't want me ripping it off you see. So of course I have a scar from the incision. I also have minor scars from pricks, scraps, scratches, and other things that may occur. Very rarely do I get a scar from any sort of injection they give me. I do, however, get scars from their more physical tests, which is where the scraps and cuts are from. Do they do those anymore? I am not sure.

[Notable Features. ] I am fully aware that I have a very... feministic look about me. But I believe this is to my advantage in some respects.

[Description. ]People often recognize me as the strange one, though I have do disagree on that regards. I am not strange, I simply comprehend.

[Preferred Clothing. ] I hate clothes. I'd prefer not to bother with them, but seeing as it disturb the scientists and the other cell mates, I wear their handy dandy white pants a t-shirt. Of course, I modified them to be shorts and I don't often wear the shirt. But don't even both trying to get shoes on me.

[Oddities. ] Oh, I suppose I can go on and on and list all my abnormalities to you, but to be frank, that gets rather tiresome and I would much rather do something more productive. So why don't you just look at your little clip board and find out for yourself.

[Habits. ] Habits? Oh, I don't know, I guess you could say that I get on the other cell mates nerves. Not on purpose of course, but they are a rather foul bunch so everyone gets on their nerves.

[Likes. ] Hm, I suppose I could let you in on a little secrete. I like to make poems and rhymes. I even recite my favourite poem in my cell at times. Ever heard of The Raven?

[Dislikes. ] I suppose I could tell you another. I don't too much care for the cells which we are put in, for I think we do deserve some proper respect, but then again, you can't exactly go about changing that now.

[Fears. ] What is there to be afraid of? We only have the future ahead to look forward to.

[Hobbies. ] I recite poems. Sometimes I make my own if I find a rock to write with.

[ Extreme Flexibility. ] Oh now we are getting to the fun part!I have the ability to bend my body in any way I want. Quite literally.

If I wanted to, I could use my muscles to dislocate certain bones, like joints so I can bend them freely. It hurts a tad returning then back to their rightful state but that is only because I have to jolt them back. Doesn't hurt too much, but I'm sure if it was you you would scream and cry. Because you can't do what I do. You thought I was going to say because you're a cry baby weren't you? Well, you are.

[ Climbing. ] Do you know how a Geeko's feet work? Well you really aught to, because I have grown the same tiny hairs as they have, so I can walk and climb just like they can. Did you know that the amount of suction a Geeko produces from it's hair would be able to hold up two humans? And that's a Geeko. Imagine how much I can carry. Of course, it would have to be a dry surface. Wet surfaces are much harder to stick to. Moist is okay, but I wouldn't be able to carry as much if it's moist. So dry, great, moist good, wet bad.

[ Thermal Vision. ] I suppose you can say I can see in the dark, but really I can see in all types of lighting. I can see the heat signatures living things produce. Though I see heat signatures all the time, and when it comes to people's facial features it often gets in the way. So it is very hard for me to discern someone from someone else unless they have a unique heat signature. So you all look alike to me! Oh, and clothes. I can see clothes perfectly fine. So if you are wearing something different then I can tell, but since most of us have the same ol' type of clothes and the scientists wear the same uniform, I can't tell the bloody difference.

And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted- nevermore!







[ History. ] Well, if you want to know, I was brought to the facility when I was 15. I was a contortionist at a circus at the time, and although it wasn't unusual at a circus for people to be flexible, someone got suspicious and called me in. After some testing to confirm, the government took me with the rest of their guinea pigs. At first I didn't like the idea of staying locked up in a cell, I still don't, so like all the other cells, I started to plan my escape. It took a full 7 years for me to complete my plan, and in the end I was able to walk right out the front door.

But as I reached the city, I came to realize something that I hadn't when I was in the cell. Soon after said realization I turned around and returned to the facility in which they gladly took me in. I've been in here and in this cell ever since.
