"...Nnh? I'm sleepy."

0 · 345 views · located in Lakeside

a character in “Color Coded”, as played by OrphicTrumpeter

Description

**This is still a work in progress, but if all this stuff is okay, let me know and I'll start adding more pictures and formatting. It would just be a pain to have it completed and then end up having to change all of the formatting/picture locations because what I have here doesn't work.**


Image
Name: "...Mmnh? My...name?" Jae-Hwa Kwon
Nickname(s): "...You... wanna know what people call me?" People call him J. He doesn't mind. He doesn't like being called by his last name, though.
Age: "...Oh. Yeah... I'm not all that young anymore." 32
Gender: "...? Male

Power Level: 5
Power: Future Sight
Power Function: Jae-Hwa's Future Sight occurs while he's asleep. Since the future isn't a straight line and is influenced by actions, the future changes very often. If asked to predict the future, he can give a generalized answer (what seems to be the most likely thing that will happen) or a specific answer (based on what choices the asker makes). He can see distant events that are bound to happen, however, he always sees the WHOLE future-- he never starts from whatever point he wants. He always starts at exactly the moment he falls asleep and goes until he views the very last thing that occurs-- then he wakes up or goes into a dreamless sleep.

Jae-Hwa's future sight takes into account things he doesn't know, so he often has knowledge of things he shouldn't. But he can't see the past, meaning that even though he knows these things and they affect the future, he can't view past events in his sleep. He also cannot recall his forgotten knowledge unless he's brought to something that jogs his memory. For example, he "knows" about the criminals who commit crimes, but he cannot recall them without seeing them in a specific way. For example, if a man stabbed another person to death, just seeing this man doesn't jog Jae-Hwa's memory. Seeing this person with a knife would jog it enough that he would recall the man doing stabbing something. Seeing this person with a knife with a substance like blood on it or a substance like blood around would help him recall that the man stabbed something that was alive. Visiting the scene of the crime will jog his memory, but not enough that it would be of help to anyone unless he say the culprit at the scene of the crime with a knife and blood. In other words, using him to solve crimes wouldn't work all that well and his powers of recollection as they relate to his future sight are incredibly weak. However, he sometimes recalls with great clarity things in the future by just looking at someone. It isn't often.

He's constantly falling asleep, but he's not narcoleptic. His power manifests by constantly reevaluating the future whenever a major decision (i.e. one that changes Jae-Hwa's personal world or the world at large) is made. Jae-Hwa can GET tired, but he isn't always tired. However, since it's tiring to watch the entire future of the world from beginning to end every time this occurs, Jae-Hwa will often fall asleep after he's viewed the future. He can stall this by focusing very hard on an activity. Also, he can be woken pretty easily if he's just asleep. He can watch the future as many times as he wants.

If he is concentrating on something in the timeline, it's impossible to wake him up. It takes about ten hours for him to view the future completely. Though he can be awakened from his viewing, he cannot wake himself up-- He knows he's viewing the future and that he's asleep, but he's powerless to wake himself. Someone else has to wake him.

Appearance: "...I don't have a mirror on me...Well...You can tell from looking at me, right...?"

Eye color: Gray.
Hair color/length/texture: Black, short, thick and unmanagable
Complexion: Fair skinned
Height: 5' 11''
Any other features?: He doesn't have any tattooes or piercings. However, he does have old scars on his arms and legs.
clothes:

Personality: "...That's...not a question you ask someone. I think... someone else could describe me better than me."

Jae-Hwa is cheerful and kind, but subdued. Often times he comes across as dismal. He seems to have a severe case of narcolepsy. He's unable to stay awake for a full day and so he doesn't live like normal people do. He takes a long time to answer people when they speak to him. When he's awake, his speech is delayed. He lives in the Chapel in the Woods and pretty much makes his living cleaning and providing services there. When he does leave his home, people often remind him of where he's going or what he's doing. Forgetful and clumsy, Jae-Hwa is known for falling asleep in the park-- or right in the middle of a conversation. If he has something to focus his attention on, he'll stay awake.

He's quiet and pensive when he's awake and often speaks in a sleepy voice. He's usually right on the brink of falling asleep, so his expression is pretty blank. He doesn't emote well, but he does voice his feelings and opinions well. Jae-Hwa does know about the goings on around town despite his near constant sleeping. He usually smokes an electronic cigarette with a very bright blue light at the end, but in order to be polite, he won't smoke while people are talking to him. There are times when people cannot wake him when he sleeps.








Image

Positive traits: "...Good things about me, huh...? Well, I suppose there's a few...?"
-Amicable: He's good at talking to anyone and is pretty friendly.
-Welcoming: He'll take anyone under his wing if they need a place to go, no questions asked.
-Attentive (to others): He pays attention to things that people tell him.
-Easy to rouse: He sleeps all the time, but he'll wake up if someone bangs on his door or shakes him.

Negative traits: "...Bad things...? Hmm. Do you have all day? I don't. Let's not talk about this."
-Forgetful: He doesn't remember what he's doing most of the time, especially if he's just fallen asleep.
-Sleepy: His "narcolepsy" makes it near impossible for him to do things normally.
-Clumsy: Jae-Hwa trips over himself pretty often. He drops things when he starts falling asleep and so on. Despite this, he is pretty good at cooking.
-Not good with time: Jae-Hwa never knows what day it is. He also has no use for year or time-- if you ask him to do something and then get back to you, he might not get back to you for days at a time.

Habits: "...People tell me I do some things a lot. I need routine. Routine's nice. Normal, even."
-To keep himself awake, he smokes an electronic cigarette. The light at the end captures his attention and keeps him awake. It won't work for an entire day, but it's usually enough to get him to and from places or finish cleaning.
-He sometimes focuses very hard on objects. The object doesn't matter, but it's a way for him to remember things.
-He tends to observe people's faces for longer periods than what's considered normal.
-He plays chess well. He has a board with an ongoing game on it, and he'll play by himself on it. He has another board so that he can play with other people.

Hobbies: "...I have a few. When I'm not doing things, I usually just fall asleep so... got to have something to focus on."
-Chess. He plays by himself a lot.
-Sleeping. It's more of a thing he does.
-Cleaning. It's his job.
-Botany. He grows plants in a garden outside of his house.
-Cooking. It forces him to focus his mind. He can stay awake when he cooks.

Fears: "...Yeah, I'm afraid of a lot of things... you'd be too. I'm pretty sure I know how I'll die. Maybe."
-Fires: He's afraid he might burn his house down and die.
-Not waking up: Jae-Hwa is afraid he'll fall asleep and never reawaken.
-Driving/Roads/Cars: Jae-Hwa is afraid he'll fall asleep at the wheel or in the road. So, he's not a fan of cars, driving, or crossing roads.
-Responsibility for children: Jae-Hwa likes children, but doesn't see himself as a "good parent" type. He will take care of them, but he doesn't like doing it.
-Waking up somewhere he doesn't recall: Jae-Hwa "knows" everything, but waking up in places he doesn't recall-- like a room he's never been in while he's awake, terrifies him. He would know if he was going to die or if something bad was going to happen to him, but it's still not something he enjoys experiencing.

Weaknesses: "...I'm not comfortable with telling people the specific things that I can't do. You know, because then they'll just use it on me."
-He doesn't have control of his ability. If multiple "big events" occur, he probably won't be able to hold off his viewing of the future.
-He can't recall everything he sees. If he's asked for something specific, he can focus on that part of the future. But since he's viewing the entire future and yet still getting up and wandering are, most of it passes him by in flashes. He "knows" everything, but also knows nothing.
-He can't hold a regular job and doesn't have a lot of money. The sleeping thing pretty much only allows him to have one job-- being a caretaker for the Church in the Woods' grounds. He can't do much else because he'll fall asleep while working. His job isn't paid too much, so he's not rolling in dough.
-He often forgets his actions. Jae-Hwa spends a very long time contemplating other people's actions and barely ever spends anytime thinking about his own. He doesn't have that much of an effect on the future that he can discern, so he doesn't remember much about the things he does. For example, he might recall leaving his house, but he won't recall why he did. He needs to have his memory jogged-- this is usually done by inspecting the items he's got on his person. If he's holding nothing, he'll likely just think he was sleepwalking and go back home.

Likes: "...I hear people in town joke that I must love sleeping... I'm not sure how funny I find that."
-Chess
-Puzzles, mysteries, or anything that requires intense focus
-Plants
-Good food
-Comfortable places to sleep
-Smoking
-Cats
-Other people
-Being helpful

Dislikes: "...The worst thing is waking up somewhere new. And fire. Most other things are okay. Except for this stuff, I suppose."
-Alcohol
-Dogs
-Fire
-Cars/Roads/Driving/Taking the bus
-Hospitals/Clinics
-Fishing
-Writing
-Waking up somewhere strange

History: Jae-Hwa used to live in town, but his dislike of cars made him move to the Chapel in the Woods. The job there also solidified his move. He never finished high school-- he didn't see a future where he got a normal job, so he just left after his freshman year. He used to take medicine for his "narcolepsy", but it made him have waking terrors where he could see only terrible futures by looking at people. He always picks up his medicine, but he never uses it. Everyone in town is aware of his sleeping issue.

So begins...

Jae-Hwa yawned widely. Damn if today wasn't long. He thought, rubbing his eyes. He'd only just finished his work maintaining the Chapel and he wasn't sure where he'd put his cigarettes down. His head was killing him, itching to go to sleep. Maybe it was another weird... future thing? He wasn't sure. He would've just fallen asleep on the hill, but he saw someone nearby. Seemed like a little girl... Jae-Hwa paused. What was a little girl doing out here without her parents... or friends?

Usually people didn't come out this way. Sure, people sometimes came to visit and play chess, but... most people who came to the Chapel were always in the chapel. So this was new.

He yawned. His head was killing him with every step he took closer to this girl and he wasn't sure how long he'd be able to stay awake when he finally reached her. His thoughts had slowed to a dribble, the way they always did when he was in math class as a kid. Before he realized it, he was standing nearby her. He stayed a little ways away-- he didn't recognize this girl, so... she might be new? It was going to be awkward when he fell asleep.

The auburn haired girl seemed to be staring at him curiously. "...Hi," He said, rubbing his eyes sleepily.

Allie recognized the man as he drew closer. He was the guy who would tidy up the chapel. Normally she would avoid him, not because he was a reader (which he wasn't anyway), but because she didn't really want anyone to know she came up here. It was her little place to go. Unfortunately, he already saw her, and was now giving her a somewhat confused greeting, and very sleepily she might add. It looked as if he might pass out on the ground right in front of her.

Whenever Allie took a peek at his thoughts, she noticed it immediately. He wasn't a Reader or a normal person, he was one of the gifted. Being gifted wasn't all that unusual in this town, but it has been a while since she's met anyone above a 3. That might just be because of her lack of anything social. "Hi," she finally said back, awkwardly looking down to the flowers in her hand.

he didn't recognize this girl, so... she might be new? It was going to be awkward when he fell asleep. the guy thought. Fell asleep? That must have something to do with whatever his power is. Maybe something dream related? "I was just..." what was she doing up here? She really couldn't come up with anything good to say so she just let the statement hang there mid-sentence.

Jae-Hwa's mind was screaming at him to go to sleep and the girl seemed like she wasn't too happy with seeing him. "Hi," She said to him, looking at the flowers in her hand. He wondered if she thought he was mad at her? "I was just..." She murmured.

There was nothing wrong with picking flowers around here... Does she think she's in trouble? Maybe she wants to be alone? He thought. There's no one else here...Why is that? Although his thoughts were slowly all turning to Also I should go to sleep, He spoke to her again, "...It's alright if you're here." He rubbed his eyes, focusing hard on the grass. "...Um. But around this time... usually people come up this way." He said. "...I'm not sure if you're... hiding? But..." He couldn't help but yawn. "...If you're trying not to get seen, it would be better to go a little higher up, I'd think." His thoughts were now just a mindless chant of sleep, sleep, sleeeeeeeeep so he rubbed his eyes and murmured, "...Anyway... I'll get out of your hair."

He turned to leave.

Elizabeth Emilia Marlen


It was boring but it was exciting, the city itself was dullsville as were most of the people in it. However, there were always those fascinating ones, those different ones, the colored ones. And she was one of them. Unlike the many of colored eye individuals, Elizabeth loved to go out into the public and screw with society, she was wanted for major theft as well as assault and battery, though she believed her reason was just as she only went after those who ever did wrong. People didn't see it that way though, however, none of that mattered to her. She just liked to cause trouble, she liked the confrontation, though at this point in time she did have more than herself to worry about. Elizabeth had stumbled upon what came to be her twin brother around eight years ago, they were separated at birth for some reason the both of them still didn't know. Aside from her twin brother, she also had two other sisters, one of whom they had to carefully look out for, with the eyes the color of a rainbow. And she, she was too young.

Elizabeth and her twin, Alan, were inseparable, they went everywhere together. He even goes with her to all her charades, however he has a trick of not being seen most of the time. Elizabeth made her way towards the little girl she came to know as Allison, and the little sister she hadn't had till eight years ago. Elizabeth left her family to be with this one, as she was old enough anyways. Upon doing so, she saw a face she didn't quite know the name to. She had seen them before, sometime, from a distance but that was all. That person was walking away from Allison, which was good, as she would have broken his bones had he attempted to hurt her. In her hand Elizabeth had a bow, one she made on her own, it was a hobby of hers, archery. "Hey lovie, who was that?" Elizabeth drew her bow and aimed it at the boy's back. "You didn't see anything." she said from behind him. "Remember that." Her orange eyes almost pierced through the boy's back, she didn't trust a soul.


Alan Forester


Alan spent most of his time surrounded by electronics, or following his sister in her endeavors. However the rest of the time he spent with his other siblings, as he became known as their shadow being he followed them everywhere. He was almost painfully protect of them, especially Allison, she was so young. He was so proud of her and how she handled herself, though those eyes, he feared at a young age she could lose control. She was so little, sometimes he just thought the worst. As he walked with his sister, Elizabeth, he saw Allison who had wandered into one of her usual areas. It was relatively secluded, though at the same time, nowhere was secluded enough. If he could only shove her into a bubble or one of his force fields so no one could get their hands on her. They did horrible things to those with colored eyes, he himself had purple eyes, and Elizabeth his twin had orange. They both thought it was strange as twins their eyes ended up being such different colors. As was their powers. However they complimented each other, Alan was the defensive, and she was the offensive. However, Alan got the extra ability of technomancy, the ability to control technology. Hidden in his pocket was a reconstructed electronic device, that looked like a small robot, it moved around slightly until he tapped it gently and it stopped.

Upon seeing someone walking away from Elizabeth, he elbowed her casually, though she had already taken it upon herself to yell at him and threaten him. He sighed, and walked over to Allison smiling at her. "Hey beautiful, what are you doing? Don't wander off by yourself next time, you worried me sick." He had a gently smile on his face, quite the laid back person he never acted rashly - that was always Elizabeth's territory. However, he had a temper and he could do a one eighty immediately. If he was angry, he was scary. Alan was beginning to worry about their well being, not knowing where they would be in a couple of years. People feared people like them, they were also hunted, killed, tortured, shunned. In short, they were not accepted, they simple could not be. Elizabeth was determined to fight the system, but with Allison, it just couldn't be done right now.

Jae-Hwa hadn't gotten very far away before he heard other people. So her friends are here. He thought. But, the voice from behind him that spoke was much older than he expected. "You didn't see anything. Remember that."

He chuckled. Well, it was older than the little girl, but younger than him. Someone who clearly had no idea who he was, because otherwise why would they threaten him? Anyway, he was positive without turning around that this was some rambunctious teenager with far too much swagger. And she's now made me interested in the little kid. Which I at the very least could say I wasn't about a minute ago. All Jae-Hwa knew was that he wasn't afraid of a teenager. He'd been a teenager once. I don't recommend it.

But he didn't turn. It wasn't because he didn't want to, morseo because his brain just threw up its hands, gave up, and shut down and he felt himself falling asleep. various thoughts rushed through his head, but he ended with Wasn't I looking for my cigarettes? and fell into the beginning of a vision of the future.

Small town. Thought J.C. as he walked aimlessly through the streets of Lakeside, eventually reaching a hilly area. It almost felt strange not having New York's alabaster giants tower over him. But between a gunfight and a small, boring town, he'd pick the small, boring town. Sure, his charges were dropped, but there were still Mafia dons more than happy to put a bullet between his eyes the same he did their associates. So he ended up here. Escaping the past. Always escaping the past. It was a tale that belonged in a movie, really. Before it happened to him, if the past few years of his life was on the silver screen he'd probably love the Producers and the Director. Now he wanted to hurt them. Bad.

Just proves you've always been defined by your violence and vices, J.C. He mentally mumbled to himself. He wished at least he could have kept his job. But maybe it was better he left Law Enforcement. There was talk of "Gifted" criminals and their "superhuman" feats. He had enough problems already, and he didn't want to deal with anybody elses. But now he was here, and that problem was back there, for the most part. He didn't expect too much trouble from this place. Hell, the people even smiled at each other as they walked by.

No, what he had to worry about is some jumpy wannabes with cheap automatics tailing him because pissed-off boss sent him after him. As long as he layed low he wouldn't get into too much trouble. Not enough to pull a gun, he hoped. Returning his mind to the present he found himself near a chapel. J.C. stopped. He looked around him. Walking without thinking, J.C.? Next time you're gonna find yourself floating face-down in some river, like that Vinci bastard.

There was a group of people not far from him, two stone throws away from him. A little girl, two teens, and some Asian, it looked like. He wasn't racist, but it was hard to tell the ages of that particular race. They all looked young. He turned to leave, the he saw the girl point a bow at the Asian. She didn't fire, but she said something, but he walked away, and promptly fell asleep, it looked like. His first instinct was to walk over there and question her, but he wasn't a cop anymore. What was that about staying out of trouble? Walk away J.C. Walk away. It's not your problem.

"Not my problem." He repeated his thoughts to himself quietly. Screw it. And before his mind could protest otherwise, he found himself heading toward the trio.

Wasn't this spot supposed to be secluded? She would probably be finding herself somewhere else to go after this. Frankly she didn't mind her brother and sister being here, but at this exact moment, not really. Allie folded her arms. "He wasn't a reader you know..." She mumbled to them as Elizabeth drew her bow. However, things suddenly got much more complicated. The guy fell asleep, like, took a face-plant into the dirt. On a normal day, she would have burst out laughing, but to be honest, she was waiting for this to happen.

"Whatever you do, do not wake him up," she immediately said. Why was. This so important? Because she could read his mind as he was dreaming. And by the looks of it, he was dreaming up the future. Not seconds after he went out, two more people showed up. Allie seriously needed to reconsider where she spent most of her days. "He's asleep," she called out to the person kneeling by his side. To the other person, she looked him dead in the eye and said : "no, it is not your problem."

Wrong move. That was something he was thinking, not saying. Her brother and sisters had talked to her about replying to things people say in their heads. Without another word, she hopped on her little bike, training wheels and all, and pedaled back down to her house, where she promptly descended the rocks and sat on her little island. Her island was very secluded. It was impossible to jump to, and the rocky bottom had seaweed coating the rocks so if someone where to wade into the water, they would slip and take a plunge into the water. Allie got across by lifting a decent sized rock into the air with her mind, and then hopping from it to the island, then putting the rock back down again. Normally Allie went here when she was upset because nobody could bother her here.

It wasn't her day. It really, really wasn't her day. She was surrounded by morons. Morons, the lot of them. She stared unamused at the man whom had apparently fainted, only to be sleeping. He was walking away....and then sleeping. However, Allison told her not to wake him, and that only meant one thing. He was a person of colored eyes, he was most likely seeing something that involved another point in time, or something to do with dreams in general. While she would love to have just kicked him repeatedly until he woke, or shot an arrow into his leg to wake him, she didn't. Instead, her eyes made their way to the girl next to him. Dumbass. she was writing on his arm, kneeling there. "Oh kill me now." she said, looking at yet another person who was approaching them, she, Alan, and Allison to be all the more precise. It was never good to have someone approach you directly like that, they were usually police, or readers. Neither of them - give her one sibling, were good to have around or come across. "What the hell do you want?" she barked at him, aiming the arrow directly at his chest. Elizabeth wasn't like the other people here. She was raised somewhere else and grew up differently. She in fact, never left the house without packing heat and technology.

Not that her bow looked like anything special, give that that wasn't the only thing she had. She noticed Allison walk away, trying to be on her own yet again - which she and Alan tried their best not to allow. But she was young, and she didn't understand. She always told them, you are never really alone. Elizabeth looked the man up and down, the way he walked was somewhat familiar. Though the person themselves was not. Being a wanted criminal so to speak, there were certain people that carried themselves in such a way that would just reek of the law. It occurred to her that moments ago her sister read his mind, hopefully he wouldn't take to it. She lowered her bow and glared at him, only to peel her eyes away and speek to Alan. "Go." she said, urging him to go after Allison. Alan walked away from the bunch and headed towards where his sister disappeared to another place where she tried yet again to be alone. "Whatever, I leave you idiots to your own devices." Elizabeth then turned away, though fully preparing to turn back around and hit someone should they approach her. She would love to stand here and play with the others, but they were too close to home.

"This is weird, why would everyone just wandering around here like that? People haven't been here in a long time." Alan sighed as Elizabeth approached. "Like nats huh?"

Jae-Hwa had felt this way before.

When his head started pounding the closer he got to something or someone, it meant that this thing or person was bound to change everything as he knew it. He could see everything that happened in the world, but he narrowed it down to just Lakeside, hoping to understand why a little girl had made him succumb to this.

The images always started out slow. The little girl would go home. Why? He wasn't sure. The others talking-- a girl with a bow, a boy, what looked like an older man. There was a jacket on Jae-Hwa and words on his arm. He went to someone's house to return a jacket. He came back home. The images began speeding up. The girl with the bow was always pointing it at people. The little girl only left her house from time to time. The boy seemed to always be with the girl. People he recognized doing everyday things, people he didn't recognize doing everyday things.

The images were now just flicking past. Faces. Places. Sun rises, sun sets. But he slowed the images down when he saw the little girl from before. He wasn't sure how much time had passed.

What's going on? Jae-Hwa thought, staring at the scene for a bit. The girl just seemed to be talking to someone. He wanted to try and see what she was saying, maybe slow down his future sight some more, but he was too late and continued forward in his visions.

Soon, he wasn't recognizing people anymore. He'd watched another iteration of his death-- it changed almost weekly, so he wasn't 100% sure how he'd die. At least it wasn't from a car, though. Then he watched as the world grew and grew and grew...

The ending of the world always changed. He wasn't sure why. This time, the sun swelled up and swallowed the Earth. But fortunately, no one died by being burned to a crisp. No, the sun expanded slowly, drying up all the water on earth as it did. Life that depended on water perished from dehydration and those things that lived long enough to hang on died from the fires and the unbearable heat. Then, the earth was swallowed up. Finally, the Sun became a planetary nebula-- Jae-Hwa read about them because of these visions of the future sometimes being this way-- and then a white dwarf, and then a black dwarf. Then, there was darkness.

Jae-Hwa felt his consciousness fading. Was that the end? He wondered, sleepily. But he was tired and needed to rest. He didn't bother answering his own question.
