C R E A T I O N . . .

It’s been many years since superheroes rose up to protect the Earth and its inhabitants. It all began with the creation of Captain America during WWII, and since then more heroes, and subsequently, villains, have made themselves known. Some heroes such as the Avengers and Justice League have made themselves known to society, whether that was desired or not. While others, like the X-men, have remained in hiding. Either way, the world is no longer in the dark about the existence of heroes or villains.

For decades, these heroes have courageously defended and protected the citizens of Earth, along with many other planets in the universe. Our reach in the galaxy has shortened due to the knowledge from some intergalactic heroes like Thor, Superman and the Guardians of the Galaxy. But the current reign of heroes have reached their end. Some have died in service, while others desire to hang up their cape and retire. Many of these heroes could not leave innocent people defenseless and in return decided to pass on their legacy to their children. These proteges have inherited their parents skills, abilities and powers, while also growing up watching and being trained by their parents.

Many of these children attended Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters during their younger years, up through High School. A good starting ground that helped these students learn how to hone their abilities, while also getting a proper education. Professor X always desires the best for his students, wanting them to have bright futures to pursue whatever they wish… Be that a hero or a lawyer.

Although Prof. X’s school was marvelous in many ways, some heroes still didn’t think it was enough for when another attack presents itself. So before throwing in the towel, Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark came together and funded the Descendant Academy. An elite, highly secretive facility that focused on the intense and vigorous training of the worlds finest heroes. Recruits were pulled from the most powerful and prestigious of proteges, only gaining entrance into the Academy if chosen. Bruce and Tony are highly selective about who joins the academy wanting uniquely useful and talented heroes to take up the reigns.

These Descendants come from all walks of life. Some are children of the most infamous and powerful heroes in the universe, some of simple human vigilantes and some… are even children of villains trying to get a clean slate for their family name. They all have been chosen to study, train and learn so that they can become the new saviors of the world.

There he was, minding his own business when a woman slips past only to spin around and face him. Nice hair. Women like having something to hold onto," she commented unabashedly, which brought a small smirk to his face. His hands were tucked a little into his pocket, and he chose not to speak while he watched her walk away. She was a minx, no doubt, and he followed the wild woman since it looked like she was headed in the same direction.

At first, he wasn’t sure that he should trail after her like a lost puppy. But then he found the seats filling up, and Zehara happened to have taken one that had some space left over. His self-criticizing inner thoughts began to plague him. He was going to look like an idiot sitting next to her. Like a stalker, maybe. Like one look just had him ensnared as she so obviously pleased.

She’s beautiful, no doubt. Sexy. Commanding. Confident. A few of those things - really most of them he was not. Just as he wanted to pull away, turn around, and find a place to stand like an awkward statue, his sister’s voice trickled into his mind as a reminder that he’d be okay, Just sit, Hakan.

Unlike Catori, he never really socialized with “outsiders”. If he did, it was usually bad. They brought drugs and violence into his tribe back at home, so he was in for a serious culture shock. He lived in the place of his people for so, so long. All his life. Catori had not. Their views were different, yet in some ways, the same. It was just that Catori was brave and intelligent, and Hakan was not.

Regardless, he sat next to Zehara just in time for her to inquire about his name. He wouldn’t get to answer, though. Phil made sure of that. So instead, he slid back and sunk into the sofa, letting his legs stretch out and spread at the knees.

Catori had long since settled by William, also acknowledging that Theo was hanging out behind them. She didn’t bother either of the men, as they both seemed rather quiet. Her peripherals, on the other hand, skimmed the occupants with quiet regard for how they sat - who they chose to sit by. They were a motley-looking crew, that’s for sure. The only hero that she recognized was William, and it’s just because he’s been all over television. She could have sworn she’s seen Lexa on social media, but maybe she’s just thinking of someone else.

"Before we get to the debriefing, we probably should address the elephant... or elephants in the room." Phil commented, which pulled Catori out of her daydreaming like trance. Hakan, of course, was clueless. He didn’t bode well with idioms, so he sat there next to Zehara with that look on his face that just went, “What elephants?”. He wasn’t stupid, but some things did vex him. Her brother’s intelligence was not formal, it was spiritual and familial. He never went to school. He tried, but… no one cared in that part of town if one skipped or whatever. Not to mention that it was sorely underfunded and rancid with violence and drugs.

Catori stood up for the both of them, "I am Catori Moonstar. My brother is Hakan Proudstar. We are the children of Warpath and Mirage." She turned around a little to address everyone as much as possible, and with a soft smile on her lips, "Mmm, our abilities vary." She looked back at Alfred and Phil to get some kind of sign that it was enough information right now, then she sat back down.

Hakan cleared his throat and stood up. Not that he was hard to miss at all. He placed a palm over his chest, "My sister and I look forward to this journey with you all." His voice held a deep, rumbling tenor and he was more respectful and articulate than his lack of education and appearance might suggest. There was a clear native twist to his accent which was missing in his sister’s. It was perfectly clear that, while siblings, they couldn’t have grown up farther apart.

After that was said and done, Phil and Alfred quickly moved into laying the failures of the heroes on rather thickly. The siblings hadn’t the slightest clue what it entailed, but they could put two and two together and assume that there was some kind of training that went miserably.

Catori looked around the room; her empathic power, while not acutely trained, picked up on the lightest notes of unfamiliarity, self-blame, and more. She scratched the back of her neck, feeling awkward in this room right now. She couldn’t sense everything, but the most evident and strongest of emotions left their imprints in the air.

Aria moved past James and found herself sitting on the couch next to him. Not because she was already attached, she wasn’t, but because it was convenient. Did she feel a little weird about it? Sure. But she could feel the “go girl” look from Catori without having to look her way. She made some adjustments to her frumpy sweater dress abomination and waited for the onslaught.

When Catori introduced herself and Hakan, Aria greeted them with a gentle smile. They seemed friendly. "I trust the rest of you will be sure to introduce yourselves later. I'm sure I don't need to waste everyone's time going over every reason why the training exercise was a failure—" Phil began only to be interrupted by James.

"Then why am I here?" The demon’s outburst made Aria jump slightly. It was frustrating, however, to be getting an earful from two old men that have all-too high expectations. Alfred and Phil worked with some of the best of the best, and these were just… their children. They were not their parents. Not yet, anyway.

Aria wasn’t going to say anything, though because if she did, it wouldn’t be anything good. She’d give these two old men her own thoughts, and they wouldn’t want to hear it. From the way that Phil coarsely ripped apart their training, he wasn’t going to be fair. He wasn’t even going to be unbiased regarding how he will treat or what he is to expect of them when compared to Wonder Woman, Hulk, Spiderman, and Superman.

Then he continued to draw comparisons, and she finally stood up. As meek as she might be, the woman had a lot to say. It wouldn’t be directed at Alfred. It would be for Phil, and only him. "While we wouldn’t consider our mission a total success, it was also not a total failure. You’re so biased, comparing us to “the greats” that you can’t even tell us what we did right. You’re spoiled by the likes of Superman, Spiderman, and whoever else - and that needs to change."

She turned around to address the group for a while because they would be her teammates, and no one deserved to be torn down like that. They weren’t failures. "We got many hostages out, and that was more than any newly assembled team that has known each other for half a day could do. We were set up for this so that we could be scared and broken into being better, and that’s bullshit." She rarely cursed, but she could feel the anger rising deep in her belly.

"Also, I don’t suppose Phil watched everything because we were a team. Maybe not our original teams, but we ended up together, for the most part. If anyone broke off, it was by their own plan. So Kane went to Myla’s aid. So Lexa tripped the alarms and James had to carry her out. We’re human, too. We’re not weapons." She concluded that part for her peers and turned back to Phil, "Our parents would be disappointed with you. It’s been a whole day, if even that. If anything, you got Lexa and Myla shot because we were not adequately prepared. But I guess you're too elite to admit you don't know what you're doing anymore. You're so scared about what's happening you'd rather make your point than actually guide us. I don’t know anything more about my teammates than what I knew when we showed up and looked at each other for the first time! If anyone gets us hurt, it's on you. Maybe you should retire from hero training with your ridiculous expectations." She started to turn away to depart but changed her mind.

Just as Phil or anyone might interject, she picked back up in about half a heartbeat. Now she yelled at him, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Phil, but your favorite heroes are gone. They're fucking gone! They’re missing or dead, and you - you’re here! What does that make you? What did you do for them? Nothing! Evaluate yourself, Phil."

Her piece was said, and she didn’t feel like being in a room where she was shamed by someone older than dirt. She just left, and if Phil or Alfred tried to convince her otherwise, she’d just slip past them and go on her way. What were the old farts going to do? On her way out she mumbled loudly, "You got to be a team larger and stronger than anyone else after a whole half a day, blah blah blah." Yes, she gave it the head shakes and the childish mimicking of Phil’s own words as she went through the lift doors. She'd flip them off while they closed if she weren't so nice, so she didn't. Lucky for them.

There was a greenhouse in the building, so that’s where she’d end up.

Theo's eyes followed Catori as she took a seat beside William, adjusting his leg as a courtesy, so it wouldn't dangle down right by her shoulder. He wanted to be comfortable, not rude, and especially not to a newcomer. It would have been nice to say hi, or introduce himself, but there was no such opportunity with Phil immediately moving to command the room. As usual.

"What about Josiah?" Zehara's voice cut through the room, interrupting Phil, and Theo felt himself straighten up a little. Yes, what about Josiah? He'd slipped right out at the end, without so much as a parting word to Theo... Alfred's response confirmed his departure, and, like everyone else, Theo couldn't find an appropriate response. He scrubbed a hand through his hair, wondering if he had contributed to Josiah's decision by not being a good partner, not being welcoming or supportive enough. At the very least, to leave alone at a time like this was dangerous; Theo should have made sure Josiah was safe, if nothing else.

Catori's introduction caught him off guard—in his brooding, he'd missed Phil calling on them, he realised that now—though he didn't miss much, seeing as she offered little information about her brother and herself. "Welcome," he murmured when she sat down again, as much of a greeting as he could have offered in that moment.

Penny, for her part, wasn't so interested in the siblings. Her nerves and self-loathing had grown since she'd parked herself in the chair, curling up into it like she was trying to hide form the rest of the room. Only when Phil started his debriefing in earnest did her head rise from where it was resting on her knees, her eyes fixed miserably on him. She knew she'd messed up just as much as everyone else had, so it was a surprise to hear some semblance of praise for her and Myla's teamwork. Though Myla was right. It wasn't fair to anyone else to point out that the girls were just doing what they'd been doing for a while now.

She wilted more as Phil's lecture continued, biting down hard into her lip to stay present. Logically, there was no way that everything was her fault, but it was certainly easy to turn the blame inwards. It was just like her father always said; Penny, you could have done more. You could have been better. But she didn't, and she wasn't, and everyone suffered as a result of it. What was she thinking, coming here? She wasn't cut out to be part of a team, much less one responsible for rescuing disappeared heroes. She would just drag everyone down.

Her thoughts spiraled more and more, until, by the time Aria stood up to address the room, Penny was the only one not listening, her head buried in her folded arms as she tried to contain herself. Anyone looking at her might have thought she was asleep, with how still she was sitting, but her mind was a rush of turmoil, eyes closed as blame and disappointment cycled through her head.

Theo was definitely listening, though. He couldn't say he disagreed with Aria's accusations; it simply wasn't fair that they were thrown together and expected to work miracles immediately. Prior training didn't count for anything. Even when he'd first enrolled at the Academy, he'd had months of making mistakes and falling on his ass before he'd figured out how to work with the others, and he wasn't even a team player to begin with. He shot a look at Alfred, which the older man returned, his face twitching just slightly in acknowledgement of Theo. He wondered for a moment if he should try to calm Aria down, but he could tell from her expression and tone that she needed this. At the very least, it might make Phil agree to some adjustments in their training. Not that Theo didn't respect him, but he wasn't the greatest mentor at the worst of times, and the thing they didn't have on their side now was time.

He waited until she'd finished her tirade and stormed off, then piped up in an easy, placating tone. Just in case anyone else wanted to start yelling too. "Well, I don't know about you all, but I didn't expect to pack for a charity banquet. Anyone want to take tomorrow off and hit the mall to get some clothes? I assume it's important for us to be dressed appropriately." This last bit he directed at Phil, just in case he wanted to oppose everyone taking off for the mall. "Not to mention the masks we'll have to wear. Not everyone has a party-appropriate mask, I believe." That was Theo. Certainly not a team player, but willing to try if it meant keeping the peace.

While the whole situation in the lobby was going on, two identical cars were approaching the compound, pulling to a stop in the driveway. The driver of the second car leaped out, hurrying to open the back door for his passenger.

A slim, well-dressed man stepped out, surveying the Academy with a slightly disdainful smirk. As he did, another man emerged from the first car, dressed in the same nondescript suit as the first mook. His attention was focused on the surrounding land, noting its silence and emptiness. Aside from the three of them (and of course everyone else inside the tower) there wasn't another soul around. They began approaching the front doors, the man who had been sitting in the back of the second car leading the trio.

This was, of course, Raoul Falcone, of the Falcones operating out of Gotham City. Usually leaving his home grounds warranted greater security detail, but as he technically wasn't at the Academy on business he had opted to arrive in the company of only two of his trusted underlings. Still, Raoul wasn't so stupid as to be completely unarmed; he had, at present, no less than two guns and three knives on his body, and the same went for his bodyguards.

The front doors slid open, and Raoul sauntered in, removing his sunglasses and tucking them away. "Well," he started, "seems you've got quite the party going on here. Sorry I'm late, but I heard about it through my network, and I had to come see for myself."

He looked around at the people gathered, noting each one. Some of them were familiar faces—the Grayson boy in particular, whose easy smile had dropped, starting forward with a furious expression. Raoul held a hand up, still smiling slightly, stopping Grayson in his tracks, although he still looked murderous, fists clenched by his sides.

"You might want to hear me out," he went on. "Some of you may know me already, but allow me to introduce myself. My name is Raoul Falcone, and these gentlemen with me are McCann and Fisher. I'm aware that you're gathered to investigate the recent, uh... disappearances. Now, normally this kind of event would warrant some celebration on my part, if you know what I do for a living." He winked at Theo. "But the truth is, they have me concerned, because people don't just vanish like that. Especially not heroes. Either they die with a bang and a flash, shaky phone recordings of the event plastered across the Times Square for a week, or they retire and pass the job on to people like you guys. But disappearing quietly? That never happens. And who's to say whoever did it won't be coming after men like me? The enemy of my enemy is my friend, right?"

Raoul shrugged, his tone growing serious. "What I have to offer is weapons, and men. I've got ears in more cities than just Gotham, and I'm at the head of a very extensive information network, which actually led me to you, if you're curious about how I knew to come here. In return, you'll allow me a place in your squad, and I'll tag along for the ride, because I want to know what the hell is going on. And at the end of it... who knows? We might be friends. In fact, to show I mean business, I'm putting myself at your mercy." He dismissed his men with a wave, and without hesitation, they turned and left the building, sliding back into the cars waiting out front. The cars did not leave, but remained sitting in the driveway, leaving Raoul standing alone in front of the group. He tilted his head in Phil and Alfred's direction. "Well, what do you say?"

It was discerning to sit here and get chewed out by an old man that probably hasn’t seen much in his life. He didn’t know a damn thing about Phil, but there didn’t seem to be anything special about him. However, as one does when an assassin, his features express nothing that could give away his thoughts.

It was only natural to pick on Myla and Kane. She had gotten hurt twice, and all of those times Kane was there for her. He wanted to be. In his mind, he didn’t think there was anything wrong with that. His gaze drifted toward Zehara for a second, and they might have exchanged one of those both-raised-eyebrows expressions. Had he not thought his comrade a woman capable of handling herself, he’d have stayed with her. By the time Myla had been shot, most of the people here were in one place anyway. Zehara was a big girl, and if she needed him, she would have said so. It didn’t seem like she’d be one to hold anything back. "I’d do it again. For anyone." Of course he would. He’s a sketchy-looking man most of the time, but part of the reason he was here is that every assassin eventually starts turning into a bleeding heart. It was his time, and he has a lot of “good people” stuff to do in his lifetime.

But he looked down at Myla as she sat in front of him. The side of one of his feet gave her hip a gentle tap. It wasn’t much of a gesture, but it was all that he could do to make her feel about him being openly attacked about rushing to her aid. It didn’t matter to him.

He had listened to Aria's little tirade, and Kane was surprised she didn't get all white-eyed and crazy. The poor girl looked young. Younger than the rest of them. She seemed more temperamental, which was good in this case. She could speak her mind freely while all of the "millennials" sit there and take everything in silence. He watched her storm off and into the lift, and he chuckled softly to himself. Someone had to say it.

He uncrossed his arms, scratched the back of his neck lightly, and leaned forward closer toward Myla. His elbows dug into his knees and his palms cupped his chin. Honestly, it seemed like the day was still early. He still felt tired. Also, there was that sad case that was Myla's room. It needed more than cleaning. It needed to be doused in sage and released from whatever demon possessed the space and tosses her clothes and stuff around. There was no way that someone like her could do that without the risk of falling over everything.

Just before anyone could get out any more smart remarks, Theo interjected. Kane nodded lightly and nudged Myla with his foot, "Want to watch me try on an outfit?" It was a light joke at her blindness, but it was probably dry enough to come off wrong. Not that he'd purposely pick on her with malice. "Maybe hit up Victoria's Secret on the way." The nis stoic visage melted into a soft bout of laughter. Until...

... someone just burst in. Falcone. That name was one of the most infamous names in the whole city of Gotham. You didn't need to be a gangster, villain, or hero to notice him. "Well, look what else Gotham dragged in." He muttered this lightly enough for only Myla to hear. Kane was a bad man, but the Falcones were notoriously vicious. They were just gangsters. Whatever you thought of the family, they did keep Gotham relatively well-balanced. It was still a cesspool, but a manageable one. He sighed deeply at this.

Lexa tried really hard to not be on her phone, but getting admonished for being shot wasn't something she wanted to hear. Rather than meet the faces of those she may have disappointed, like James or whomever else, she decided that her best option was to keep her ears open but eyes perfectly oriented with the light glow of the screen.

Alfred and Phil both gave her expectant looks, but she's not a child. She's not going to allow two men to tell her what to do. Besides - she already knew she fucked up. To make it better, Aria gave Phil the mouthful that he deserved for expecting a whole lot more than what could have been reasonably given. As Aria stormed off, Lexa gave the girl a thumb's up.

After Kane's little piece, the topic shifted to party mode. A gala. That would be great, actually. There's nothing that Lexa loved more than a healthy dose of drinking and socialization. Maybe she could even get laid before she died. A dress. A beautiful dress and a few last pictures of normalcy before she disappeared off the face of the earth would be great, too. Honestly, if they were leaving the fate of the heroes to this bunch being trained by Phil, she might as well as make a bucket list.

Theo had a brilliant idea! That made Lexa perk up from her phone, "Well, I don't know about you all, but I didn't expect to pack for a charity banquet. Anyone want to take tomorrow off and hit the mall to get some clothes? I assume it's important for us to be dressed appropriately. Not to mention the masks we'll have to wear. Not everyone has a party-appropriate mask, I believe."

color=#b45439]"I'm always down to shop. A bit broke, but it looked like money just rolled in..."[/color] Her words seemed to have rolled off her tongue just shy of Falcone finishing up the last sentence of his grand entrance. Her head tilted from side to side and she surveyed him from her lonely chair somewhere near a wall where she'd be out of everyone's way. Kinda cute. Rich. Showy. She could dig it.

"Well, what do you say?" It was around this time that Lexa got up from her seat and decided it was time to vacate the area.

First, she stopped in front of him and smiled wide. Then she shifted around a bit until she was behind him, her cheek to his for selfie mode, "Smile for the camera, Mr. Falcone. We're going to need more than money to live through this." She gave the iPhone the peace sign with her fingers, smiled, and then snapped the picture. Without missing a beat, she looked it over to check and make sure she looked decent. "Welcome to the mess, babe." She left him there, went back to tapping away at her phone, and walked into the lift without looking up. It was automatic. The doors closed and she went... somewhere.

Re: Descendant

Image ImageRiley Barton, Hawkeye (Clint Barton), 33
Having been trained by his father as a child, Riley's spent his years trying to be the hero Clint Barton saw in him. He holds down two jobs, one as the hero Hawkeye and one as a public defender, dedicating every waking minute to his community to keep it safe in more ways than one. Now, more than proving himself in his father's eyes, this is a chance to prove himself to the rest of the heroes, to show that he's worthy of the title he inherited.

Image ImageDevyn Lance, Black Kestrel (Dinah Lance), 30
Like her mother, Devyn's never quite been interested in a life of heroics. There was a chance, when she was young, when it looked like the Lances could finally have a peaceful life, but that was before her powers manifested, as her father's common blood wasn't enough to keep them at bay. She's kept her head down, living during the nighttime as a singer in a series of clubs, but she doesn't want to make it big, doesn't want her name anywhere. Seems that the time for normal is over, though.

let me know what you think about the face claims and colours? i feel like they might be kind of similar to some already existing ones in this rp but i might be wrong, i've been a bit out of it lately. also while looking through potential face claims i felt like dakota johnson would fit so well, and i think i'll keep an eye out for a potential role to slot her into

Re: Descendant

whenever you're free, mombie, there's no rush on my part. and thanks, i hope i do these characters justice!

Re: Descendant

Hey, barnes! I already told you that I am SO happy to have you back and around.

I don't see any adjustments or anything to make, and yes, we may have relations to discuss with certain characters! I probably won't get to that until this weekend, but we have each other's DMS.

I'm also happy to have a small group, as I know I don't need to be particularly chatty and it will likely be better for us to discuss things there.

I'm always down for whatever!

Love the FCs, though!!!

PS: love the Falcones. You picked a good one! She was GREAT in Gotham. Glad to see a prodigy of the Starfire, which is one of my personal faves. So many great character choices! I am personally excited.

Re: Descendant

Oh, you should definitely watch it at some point... as long as gore doesn't bother you. And a couple interesting sex scenes. But yeah sounds good to me either way. I'm not as knowledgeable about DC comics, so I'll just have to read up on them a bit but I don't mind.

Oh no worries. I was super lazy and just transferred him over and didn't update... anything. The only character who was at the Academy 10 years ago was William Richards, so that'll make establishing past relationships pretty easy. Other than that... I think Raoul could possibly have run into Kane. And then Penelope could have had run ins with Myla since both of their dads were in the defenders. :)

Re: Descendant

i haven't watched the boys, picked jack quaid because he looked adequate for the role but i'm glad you like him lol. i know where the falcones are concerned, carmine is the more well-known one but he's a bit too old to have a child in most versions i think, so i used his daughter sofia instead. also i'm going off the version of sofia in gotham played by crystal reed, if that's necessary info.

i'm also ignoring the titans version of dick and kory.

my bad! i looked through tobias's sheet and i thought the mention of the academy was from before the closure, but i'll edit the proposal right now to reflect that. which other characters were at the academy ten years ago? maybe we could establish their relationships from that time so that petra, penny, and theo have some footing with them.

Re: Descendant

Totally makes sense putting it here :) I'll probably make a little group chat just between the three of us on discord soon. I just know mombie is busy atm so I don't want to bombard her discord xD

Also, no worries about not being able to join Leave of the King. Completely understandable. But if you're wanting to do anything else or reboot anything just let me know :) I'm always open to ideas.

Looks good to me :D I'll have to look into Sofia Falcone, because I have to admit, I have no idea who that is lol. I love the FC of Jack Quaid... but maybe that's because I love the show The Boys lol.

The only thing that I could see needing minor tweaking is that Tobias didn't go to the academy 10 years ago. I haven't changed his CS from the last one because... Well, because I was lazy to be honest haha. But I imagined he was just kinda out doing his own thing, trying not to be labeled a piece of shit like his dad. But if Petra went that could help people maybe trust him a bit when he pops up. Because if Petra went 10 years ago then she'd know William Richards. And Petra could vouch for Tobias.

And no pressure to play 6 characters. Mombie and I just get carried away with our ideas. We might have characters die too... who knows lol.

But yeah I think it looks good :)

Re: Descendant

hey mjolnir & mombie! i thought it would be better for me to post the proposals for my characters here instead of spamming mjolnir with info over discord and asking her to pass my messages on. as i said yesterday, i'm aware that you have 6 characters each and i'd like to be able to support that but i don't think i can start with 6 at once (especially as you'd be waiting for my complete CSes for a good while) but i can do 4 first and introduce a couple more later. right now i'm resurrecting only one character from the previous run of descendants, wanda maximoff's daughter petra, but i'm considering bringing back wynne worthington (angel's daughter) or jensen jones (jessica jones's daughter), bearing their characters and the gender dynamic in mind. with that said, here's the characters i'd like to introduce for now (mombie, i hope it's okay that i borrowed your format from the faceless). i'm open to feedback and adjusting them before i officially submit them to the roleplay.
also, i'm sorry to say that i'll be passing on joining leave of the king, i don't think i'll be able to contribute significantly as i don't have much experience with the high fantasy genre and i'd rather not be an extra burden. thanks for the offer, and mjolnir for all the information you gave me last night.


Image Image Petra Maximoff, Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff & Vision), 27
Wanda Maximoff has been losing her powers ever since she gave birth to Petra, her abilities leeching through their bond into her daughter. Petra has always been frightened by the strength of her powers, but under her mother's careful tutelage, she's grown into a self-controlled and highly critical ice queen with an iron grip on her abilities, trusting next to no one except her parents and her closest friend and confidante Tobias Lehnsherr (technically her uncle, but who says you can't be best friends with your uncle?). Ten years ago, Petra was a student at the Academy, and when the databank was established, she was pulled out and into the real world to work with other heroes. But now, Wanda is almost completely human, and when the distress call came, Petra's the only one around to answer it...

barnes, Holland Roden, #4a1c27


Image Image Raoul Falcone Gigante, Byzantine (Sofia Falcone & Rocco Gigante), 32
Brought up by the formidable Sofia Falcone, Raoul is just as cutthroat a mobster as his mother, poised to take over as head of the Falcone family with Sofia's blessing. Under his leadership, the Falcones have secured their position at the top of Gotham's organised crime network, eliminating their rivals, even the Gigantes—Raoul himself was the one to put a bullet in Rocco's head at 15 to stop him fucking with Sofia. With the recent disappearances, Raoul's growing concerned, and heard from a resource that people were converging on the Academy; he's turned up to see for himself what's going on.

barnes, Jack Quaid, #717c89


Image Image Penelope Cage, Power Girl (Luke Cage & Claire Temple), 24
If Penny Cage had her way, she'd be as far away from the Academy as it's physically possible to be. Having inherited her father's powers, she's always felt the pressure to be a hero for the people like he was. Unfortunately, her own will isn't as strong as Luke's, and she's spent a few miserable years at the Academy before its closure, enough time to know that she really doesn't want to be a hero; her own passion lies in her studies. She recently graduated from college, and got sucked back into the hero life immediately, answering the Academy's summons in her father's place even though this all sounds like a major Bad Idea.

barnes, Aiyana Lewis, #b17e2f


Image Image Theodore Grayson, Nightstar (Dick Grayson & Koriand'r), 28
Theo favours his father where his abilities are concerned, preferring acrobatics to flying and his utility belt to starbolts, but he lacks his father's detective skills, sharing instead his mother's penchant for leaping straight into battle. Before the hero database was established, he fancied himself a vigilante operating largely under the cover of night, which put him at a disadvantage without the sun to power his Tamaranean abilities. However, after getting registered, he found it suited him much better to protect Blüdhaven in broad daylight. He prefers to work alone, but—following the disappearance of his uncle Jason Todd—has become desperate enough to seek help at the Academy.
