Standing at 5'9'' Adrian is average height, but what he lacks in height he makes up with in build. From years of football at school the man is built like a truck, and is quite strong even without the help of the beetle. A dashing young man, Adrian's latin roots have given him dark brown hair that he keeps closely cropped and deep brown orbs. With a dashing smile, and a strong jawline it's no secret that Adrian has always been a little bit of a ladies man.

As for his style, it's very mundane. He doesn't ever go outside of the box when it comes to his clothing. He prefers to stick to a simpler style, such as solid color shirt and jeans. He can't deny however that he looks dashing in a tux.

As for his suit it, it is the exact same appearance as his fathers. Considering the Beetle is a symbiote, it stays rather consist in appearance amongst generations. When he's not in the suit, the blue scarab is embedded into the center his back just below his shoulder blades.

Strong-Willed ⋆ Disorganized ⋆ Humorous ⋆ Talkative ⋆ Practical ⋆ Distanced


Adrian has always been a little bit divided- never quite certain which direction his life is going. He isn't good at planning, as the inflexibility of such a thing frightens him. He is far more comfortable finding his way as he goes, making split-second decisions and thinking on the spot. He's developed a knack for reflex, even without his powers to assist him, and he always seems to find himself in bad situations.

Extremely talkative, Adrian can ramble without few pitstops if given the chance. The boy practically talks a mile a minute, and can start a conversation with almost anyone.

Another aspect of his being comes from the Beetle itself. The two are in almost constant disagreement. He is at odds with its more lethal advice inside and outside battle. It causes his teammates to keep their distance since he comes of as really weird to them as it often seems he's talking to himself. Adrian does his best to be a hero and to not use the Scarab's lethal weapons to kill people. He sees the Beetle more as an inner-demon, and often hides the fact that he converses with the alien. He doesn't like to advertise what the Scarab says and has to deal with the strange looks because of it.

Adrian is highly protective. He would take less than a second to defend one of his friends or loved ones. Adrian's protective nature is closely linked to his loyalty, and both can be extremely dangerous to himself. He would lay down his life to defend someone he cares about in a second. Adrian is extremely protective of everybody he cares about - except himself.

Overall Adrian is a good young man, with strong morals. He has a strong will and a good heart. He knows right from wrong and is passionate about helping people. He is a laid back kid at heart and is still getting used to being a full time hero. He wants to do right by all his friends, the only people who can really understand him now. He wants to protect them and his home.

LIKESxxxAdrian has always loved playing guitar, he learned at a young age and would often play while his mother sang. Ever since he was a kid, he's loved playing soccer or in his world, Futbol. He loves the freedom of running and generally being outdoors. Even if he wouldn't admit it out loud, he loves rom-coms. He loves traditional Mexican food, and could probably survive on it for the rest of his life if he needed too. Rainy and overcast weather tends to make him feel at ease, as do hot showers, swimming at night and lonely walks, often complete with music.

DISLIKESxxxAdrian hates plain coffee. He has an intense dislike for lavender scented things and itchy clothing. Stereotypes are the bane of his life. He can't stand the texture of mushrooms and will pick them out of anything he eats. He hates fish and refuses to eat it. Criticism is something Adrian isn't fond of neither does he like arrogance which he exudes at times. Most of all, he hates being disturbed when he is trying to enjoy a moment alone to himself.

STRENGTHSxxxAdrian is bilingual, and can speak fluent Spanish as well as Zandrati the Beetles official alien tongue. Though many believe Adrian to be Naive, he is a rather insightful being. He always looks at both sides of the story, what its like to be in another persons shoes. Nothing is every strictly right nor wrong. He understands that. Adrian is no slouch. He's an extremely hard worker, and always goes the extra mile. He physically cannot leave a task unfinished. No matter how difficult or boring it is, Adrian finds it irresponsible to abandon a task. He only does so for the greater good.

WEAKNESSESxxxAdrian has a really hard time with killing, especially when it comes to the beetle. His weapons and nature with the beetle are meant to be the perfect killing machine so sometimes it's nearly impossible for him to hold back especially when the Beetle takes full control. He does things without thinking most of the time. Not the best thing in the world, especially when those things are stupid and can get him, or others, hurt.

FEARSxxxAndrew's powers don't go beyond his beetle suit. Without them on the field, he feels vulnerable. Losing control of himself and going into a wild frenzy frightens Adrian.

The Blue Beetle scarab is fused onto Adrian's spine and can manifest a number of powers of its own volition, an act usually accompanied by blue energy emitted by the scarab's "antennae". Currently, Adrian is still figuring out the entirety of the scarabs powers. When Adrian is in danger, the scarab activates, crawling out on to Adrian's back and generating a high-tech suit of powered armor around his body. The armor is resilient enough that it can protect him against re-entry from Earth's orbit. When the danger passes, the scarab deactivates, dissolving the costume and retracting back onto Adrian's spine, causing intense pain.

When in use, the suit can reconfigure itself to produce a wide array of armaments. Common functions include an energy cannon, a sword and shield, a grappling hook, a device resembling a communications satellite, and a set of foot-long powered blades that can shear through tree trunks. In addition, the suit can produce a set of wings for flight that can also act as shields.

The suit can also adapt to different situations, including producing energy discharges from the hands that can neutralize magic, discharging Kryptonite radiation and tuning "vibrational frequencies" of extra-dimensional objects to make them visible.

The scarab has at least one power it can manifest whether dormant or active; it can give Adrian a peculiar form of "sight" to perceive extra-dimensional objects. The scarab is able to communicate with him telepathically, and can also make noises externally. The scarab's language resembles English, claiming Khaji Da as its own name and Adrian as its real friend (his father being the first).

When necessary, Adrian can have the Scarab take over in Infiltrator Mode. When this happens, the suit becomes taller, more muscular and grows spikes and allows the scarab to fight without Adrian's conscience as a restriction. This lets it fight more brutally. However, Adrian and the scarab do not like this and only resort to it in desperate situations.

The Scarab came to earth Earth in El Paso, Texas, where Adrian's father, Jaime picked it up out of curiosity. Not long after, a league of assassins appeared at Jaime's house to retrieve it, but it had fused itself to Jaime's spine while he was sleeping. The alien gave Jamie a new set of abilities and skills which eventually led him to join leagues such as the Young Justice and the Teen Titans. For a while, Jamie enjoyed the life of a hero but once he reached his 30s he grew tired from the constant fighting. Contrary to the Beetle's ideals Jaime left the Justice and returned to his hometown of El Paso where he met his wife Maria. The two settled down, and Jaime kept his heroic history from his wife, and thankfully the Beetle was kind enough to stay dormant while Jaime lived his life.

Adrian was born to Maria and Jamie Reyes in the mid-heat of July in El Paso, Texas. Growing up his childhood was rather normal and easy-going, his father was always in his life, whether it be playing catch or coaching his soccer teams. While Adrian loved his mother with all of his heart, there was just a certain bond with his father that could never exist anywhere else. Unfortunately when Adrian was seven his life tipped upside down.

It was a freak accident, or so they said. His father had been working the late shift at the construction site and never came home. His coworker found him trapped underneath a large piece of machinery, dead. The news of his father's death had hit. Adrian full force. It was if a piece of his heart had died as well. Even at seven years old he fell into a deep depression, and even with his mother's help couldn't find the energy to be happy anymore. Of course, with all loss however Adrian eventually grew out of his spell of depression. He was nine when he finally started to laugh again and truly started taking initiative around the house. The next couple of years were practically a blur for him.

His freshman year of high school, Adrian was going through the attic trying to locate monopoly to play with his mother when he came across a old box of his fathers things. Curiosity overtook him, and he began to go through it at the bottom finding a shiny, metallic blue beetle figurine. It spanned the length of his palm, and was quite heavy in his hand. For some reason he felt compelled to take it. Weeks passed, and the beetle lay dormant on his bedside table until the night of October the 1st. He could never forget.

He was fast asleep when he heard a crash from downstairs, and strange voices. He instantly knew someone had broken into the house. He felt his palms begin to sweat, and his breathing increase as panic overtook him. And suddenly the beetle began to glow. Yes, glow. And then move. Adrian scurried out of bed more afraid of the beetle than the robbers, as it scurried across the floor and up his leg. Adrian let out a slight yelp as he felt the beetle crawl up his spine, and then a small cry as he felt it embed into his spine. It was a horrible pain, one that he still occasionally feels today. Before he knew it, metal sprung out of the beetle and he was coated in a complete suit of armor. "Hello Master Reyes. Permission to engage?", a voice spoke from his mind. He clashed around the room trying to scrape the metal off of his skin when the door to his room burst open and three men brandishing weapons sprung in, just as surprised as he was. "Permission to engage?" The voice spoke again. Adrian just shouted "yes" in his mind and suddenly he felt a disconnection from his own body. He wasn't moving his limbs as he sprung across the room and within a matter of moments had the men beaten and knocked out on the ground. Then just as painfully as the suit had appeared it retracted.

Adrian was in a shock for days, as the beetle spoke of his father, "the Second Blue Beetle", and his friend. Adrian couldn't believe his father had spent the first half of his life crusading around with the justice fighting crime, it didn't feel real. After a while Adrian became used to the alien fused into his spine, and even began stopping petty crime around town. His senior year he received a letter from the Academy, and after telling his mother he had been offered a full ride to some music school in Boston she obliged.

So begins...

MAY PARKERXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#CD4A4A

May had always been something of an early riser during the week. (Well except weekends, those were designated sleep-in days). She enjoyed getting up when it was still quiet, and the only sound that could be heard was the echo of her steps in the hallway. For some reason however, she detested Monday mornings. There was something about the start of a Monday that felt more tiring than the rest. Not to mention her mother always called her rather early on Mondays to check in. Her father was almost always asleep and just mumbled a quick 'gmornin' but it was enough to make her smile.

This morning, she was up early as usual, and made her way to the kitchen. The academy had installed a large dining room, complete with a fully functioning kitchen for the students. It felt more like a home than a school, and May appreciated it. She quickly started a pot of dark roast and grabbed a bowl from one of the cabinets. With a flick of her hand a web shot out and flicked a cabinet open across the kitchen, and another web shot out grabbing the box a Cheerios and delivered it safely to her hand. She smiled as she poured some cereal into the bowl, what was the point of powers if you couldn't use them conventionally?

By the time she had grabbed and poured some milk into the bowl the coffee was ready and she poured herself a small mug. With her breakfast in hand she made her way over to the large dining room table and set Indian-style in the seat before chowing down on her cereal. This week will be good. She repeated inside her head to boost her morale. With the start of September it meant the start of more training, and while she loved it there were sometimes where she just grew tired of all the fighting. It was times like those when she would confide in her father, he always knew what to say.

"Would May Parker, Jack Greene, Adrian Reyes, and Hayley Masters please report to Training Center A in approximately 15 minutes. Thank you" Dr. Karl's voice rang over the loud speakers. Just enough time to finish the Cheerios, she thought taking a few more bites, a nervous excitement bubbling in her. She was glad she was placed in her first training session of the week with two of her closest friends - Jack, especially. He always knew how to make her smile. Still, she didn't recognize the last name called at all and it struck her slightly as odd. Masters? She shrugged, must've been someone new. Still, she would welcome them with open arms, of course if they were willing.

ADRIAN REYESXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#29358E

Adrian had not had the best night of sleep. He has a knack for moving his entire body around while he sleeps. So when the loud speaker woke him up with an announcement, in his grogginess only managed to hear that he was needed for training, he found himself in a complete 180. His head was near the foot of the bed while his feet were pressed up against the headboard. As for the covers and pillows, they were scattered everywhere around his room. Adrian groaned slightly, rubbing the sleep out of his eyes. It was too damn early for this kind of thing. "Just fifteen more minutes", he mumbled out loud before burying his face back into the sheets.

Not a moment later a sharp shock ran down his spine and he jolted out of bed with a yelp. "What the - Scarab? Was that really necessary?!" - 'Sorry, Master Reyes. I thought you needed a little bit of help to awake' The voice rang back in his mind. "That's a little more help than I needed - but thanks. Also I've already told you, it's Adrian." He rolled his eyes as he stumbled tiredly to his closet, trying to stretch as much as he could. Of course we have no time to warm up... or even wake up.

The contents of his closet were pretty sparse, a couple of normal outfits and some training gear. He had no need for a suit like the others considering his suit was fused into his spine. Adrian skimmed his fingers over the outfits before picking a simple shirt and shorts, not like he was going to need them anyway.

The hallways were particularly quiet as Adrian made his way to the elevator his footsteps echoing down the corridor. The elevator was surprisingly empty as he made his way down to the ground floor where the training centers were. There were sometimes when he was practically in awe of the facility, the Haddens were definitely loaded that's for sure. He decided he had enough time for at least a banana, and shuffled into the kitchen nodding his head at May, the only other one in there, in what he thought was some sort of a good morning greeting. Thankfully, the bananas were perfectly ripe and he snatched one and began eating it leaned up against the counter.

MAY PARKERXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#CD4A4A

As May raised the spoon to her lips about to take her last bite, which consisted of one lonely cheerio that had escaped her grasp, a thought appeared in her head. She supposed it was a bit strange to say the least, but by now she had gotten entirely used to "Jack's Mental Text Messages". This week will be a shit show. Empath guaranteed. She rolled her eyes, but a small smile appeared on her lips, looking like a giddy schoolgirl with a secret crush. And wished, like she always did, that she could send a direct message back. But as she wasn't gifted with 'telepathic' abilities she simply thought her reply hoping that he somehow got it. The glass is half full Jack, don't forget.

"Morning Adrian" She could tell the boy had just rolled out of bed as his dark hair stuck up in about six different places. The sight almost made her giggle. May grabbed her empty bowl and walked past Adrian sleepily eating his banana to placing her dish in the washer. As soon as she closed the washer, the hair stood up on the back of her neck and she ducked, just as an unsuspecting cereal bar flew out of the cabinet whizzing past her head. "Damnit Jack" She mumbled under her breath, cereal bars were not meant to fly.

"Come on, we're already late" May said with a slight shrug to Adrian as she walked out of the kitchen and to the training room. Edith wouldn't mind, their trainer was strict but she always had a soft spot for the kids. As she walked into the training room her face lit up happily as her eyes landed on Jack. She approached him first, not even noticing his worried expression, a mischievous smile on her lips. "Hey, no more flying breakfast bars alright? I'd like to keep my head, thank you very much".

May then turned to the girl, definitely new, she reiterated taking in her light blonde hair and blue eyes. She put on a winner smile, sticking her hand out in front of her for a friendly shake. "You must be Hayley, I'm May. May Parker. Spidergirl. You can call me whatever you'd like" She added with a small giggle.

ADRIAN REYESXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#29358E

"Hey, handsome? Late riser as usual." Adrian's cheeks blushed a bright red as he looked up to see Jack walking out into the hallway. He shook his head slightly, the boy was relentless with his flirting. Still there was no denying that the two sort of had a bromance going on.

In the kitchen May returned his greeting after finishing her cereal, "Morning Adrian." He had always enjoyed her company, as he coined earlier in the year, 'you can count on May on a rainy day'. "Morning Spider." He said nonchalantly as he watched the cereal bar fly past his face with a chuckle. "I'm seriously never going to get used to that."

"Come on, we're already late" May spoke tapping him on the shoulder and he obediently followed her down the hallway and into the training room. While May - unsurprisingly - went up to Jack, Adrian couldn't help but notice the new girl amongst them. She seemed a tad uncomfortable under her bright smile but Adrian just assumed it was first day jitters. Before he could introduce himself, however, May interjected beating him to it. He waited patiently behind the redhead and spoke his two cents before anyone else could intervene. "Adrian Reyes at your service, but most call me Blue" He gave her what he hoped appeared to be a warm smile.

MAY PARKERXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#CD4A4A

May noticed Hayley's eyes widen at the mention of her last name. It was an uncommon thing to her, being the daughter of quite the famous hero got her quite a bit of attention. However, for some reason Hayley's interested seemed almost strange. "Why oh my days are you really?!" May tucked a fiery strand of hair behind her ear as she blushed slightly. "The one and only" She said quietly, bouncing on her heels. "My father told me so many stories about Spiderman growing up. He's a very interesting story. But still, we can't be known for what our parents did, can we?" That last bit took May aback slightly, as while the statement was true there was definitely something underlying to it. May was a bit perplexed by the girl, as she couldn't quite figure her out. Before she had the chance to ask about her parents however, she turned to Adrian.

May took the moment out of the spotlight to turn back to Jack who looked- something was definitely wrong. She had never seen him look so on edge in her life, and she instantly began to worry. "Jack... is everything alright?" May wanted to reach out a comforting hand, just to brush his shoulder and maybe bring him out of this 'spell' but she didn't. She knew how Jack felt about physical contact and since their little 'incident' tried as best she could to avoid touching him. It made things difficult sometimes, but she respected her friend's wishes and that was that.

Before he even had the chance to answer, May overheard Hayley's passive aggressive comment to Adrian and had to bite her lip not to respond. Maybe she had underestimated this girl, as she definitely had some kick. She turned back to Jack and noticed a sudden wave of anger wash over him as he suddenly launched into the air, May's red curls floating for a brief moment before resting back on her shoulders. "Don't flatter yourself sweetheart. You're not that important." She couldn't help as her jaw opened in 'awe'. Jack was never cold like that.

What in the hell is going on here?

"And you! It's so nice to meet you. I was beginning to think all guys here were rude. Almost walking into me as he did." Adrian stood frozen, a sort of half-smile stuck on his face as the tension in the room skyrocketed. He let out an uncomfortable and rather forced chuckle at her statement trying to take the anger out of the air. It seemed it was a little to late for that however as Jack shot up, clearly pissed. He looked to May for a brief moment, but she seemed just as lost as he did. Thankfully, Edith interjected before anything could progress.

"Nice to see you've all arrived" She spoke, coming from a door near the back. The woman's jet black hair was pulled back into a bun but a few, gray wisps had escaped to frame her face. Edith had been head trainer at the Academy since it began, an old friend of the Hadden's. She was an Ex Shield Agent, who gladly volunteered to help train the youngsters. She was clearly older, mid-fifties, but Adrian had been there long enough to know she could kick his ass. "I hope you all enjoyed your night's rest, some of you obviously more than others" Her gaze turned to Adrian and he felt his cheeks flush. "Parker, Greene, Reyes. I can see you have all meet Ms. Masters. I hope you can make her feel welcome here at the Academy" Her eyes lingered on Jack then went back to Hayley. "Today's exercise is not for the faint of heart, so I hope you all brought your A-Game. You four will be infiltrating a Max Security Compound, filled with armed guards ready to strike you down. Your goal? To rescue the hostages, located somewhere inside. While the simulation may not be entirely real, I assure you it will feel entirely real. If you get hit too many times you will be removed from the simulation. If a hostage dies, game over. If you all die, game over. Any questions?"

"I'm fine May stop worrying so much or someone would think you liked me or something spider princess". May's cheeks turned red and she whipped around away from Jack so he wouldn't see her blush. Fine, if he was going to be distant today - so be it."Great inquiry Ms. Masters, I'm sure the three of them would love to spare you the knowledge" Edith turned her head towards May first. She was still a little off her norm from the way Jack was acting but at the end of the day she was still May Parker and she had to put on her best. "Uh yeah, of course! Well... I'm sure you know my father - as you expressed - and I'm essentially his mini to put it nicely" She said with a slight giggle, the change of topic making her more comfortable. "These two goons" she nodded her heard towards "put me on reconnaissance". May smiled proudly, she was truly like a spider on the wall, the girl was straight stealth which made her perfect for scouting. "But - I can still kick some ass if needed" She added with a slight wink. "In fact, my Dad made this handy contraption for me a couple weeks ago" May brandished the small watch on her wrist proudly before twisting the face of it sideways. With a satisfying click, her suit slid out of the watch and covered her and with a small hiss sunk into place. She took a deep sigh, she always felt more at ease behind the mask. "Tada!" May spoke proudly now fully clothed in her spider suit.

ADRIAN REYESXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#29358E

Adrian felt Hayley take a step closer to him and he glanced at her, his eyes softening when he saw her face riddled with worry. He was being ridiculous, it was just a new girl not a life or death situation. Adrian was clueless as to why he felt so jittery. "No, of course not. Don't pay attention to him, mujercita, his head is always in the clouds" He whispered back a warm smile on his face. As soon as the look of worry passed over her face it was gone in an instant a bright smile replacing it. Man, this girl was confusing. His friends weren't kidding when they said understanding women was like reading the Bible in Klingon.

Thankfully, 'introductions' changed the subject. After May giddily showcased her talents - it was Adrian's turn. 'I'm assuming it's our time to shine now Master - Adrian' The beetle speaking up in his mind for the first time since this morning. "You would be correct Beetle" He spoke quietly, still a little insecure about the alien in his head. "Well - I'm not uh, as naturally talented as the others. I guess an easy way to put it is... I have an Alien attached to me that - well let me just show you" With that he unfolded his hands out, taking a deep breath and spoke the words, Khaji Da in his mind. His face grimaced slightly, the transformation was always a little painful, and he felt a deep vibration between his shoulder blades. Like molten gold poured on a surface, blue metal coated his skin until he was fully engulfed forming into his suit. Translucent wings sprouted from his back and he pushed off the ground flying up the same level as Jack. "I just kick some bad guys around here and there, clear a path" He said a chuckle emanating from him. The boy was definitely the brawn of the group.

MAY PARKERXXOUTFITXXTHE ACADEMYXX#CD4A4A

May was thankful the mask hid her emotions from the rest. When they all turned to Jack, she was shocked at the look on his face and the firm, "No." Why was he being like this? It was Hadden, their home. And he acted as if they had been thrown out on the streets proclaiming their identities to the world. If May couldn't trust the students and staff of Hadden, then who could she really trust?

She ripped off her mask, her hair falling in messy curls around her face. The fiery red locks matching her emotions, as she opened her mouth to reprimand Jack for being such an ass this morning he spoke to her. May. Please don't judge me for this. Then it seemed like the best friend she thought she knew so much became a complete stranger in a matter of seconds. "Oh and I'm from Mars. Or half of me is." Mars? Jack was - well half - Alien. Unfortunately he didn't even give May time to process as before her eyes his form melted into that of her own as if she was staring in a mirror.

Shame. Her face turned red with shame, red with anger, and most of all embarrassment. How could she be so blind when everything was sitting right there in front of her. But deep down it hurt, because even though she knew the truth it didn't matter. He didn't trust her. He never trusted her. Did he really think for a second that anything he just said would affect how she felt about him? Did he really think she was that shallow? That close-minded? May told him everything, without even a second thought. They had - or so she thought something genuine. What was the truth? Had everything he told her been a lie? Did he even actually want to be her friend? To be - No. She refused to let herself be made a fool.

With all her might she threw up walls in her mind, in all honesty she had no idea what she was doing but it wasn't fair. Wasn't fair that he got to know what she thought, felt. He didn't deserve to know. Her mother was right, she trusted too easily, just like her father. May's bottom lip quivered but she threw on a smile as best she could. "Hayley, it was wonderful to meet you. I really hope you get to call Hadden home" then she turned her gaze quickly to Edith, "I'm terribly sorry but you'll have to excuse me. I think I'm feeling a little under the weather". She didn't even wait for Edith to tell her it was alright before bursting out the door and into the hallway.

May ran to the only place she ever found quiet in the Academy. It was a small little broom closet on the fourth floor, hidden behind a stairwell. She had discovered it her first year, and since decorated it with pillows, blankets, pictures of her family, and small keepsakes. As soon as the door clicked shut she sunk to the floor clutching a pillow to her chest and closed her eyes, slowing her breathing. Just like her dad taught her.

As Jack unveiled his abilities, and lineage, and just about 15 seconds Adrian sunk to the floor, landing on his feet. His wings slowly folded back into his chest and a portion of his suit opened allowing his face to be shown. Jack was part Alien? This - this was a lot to take in and Adrian really was also trying to factor in the fact that all aliens weren't symbiotic beetles attaching to peoples back. Or were they? He said he could change forms right? Then what did he actually look like.

As the thoughts were going through his mind, he was brought back when May excused herself hurriedly and left. His gaze flicked briefly to Hayley. What a first day it had been for her. He hoped she wasn't getting the wrong idea about Hadden. God, even Edith looked a bit uncomfortable with May's exit. The silence was unbearably awkward so he finally broke it. "Dude, I think this honestly makes us like actual brothers. You're half alien, I have one attached to me... Same thing right?" He cracked a rather shit-eating grin hoping to break the tension in the room. "Why didn't you tell us earlier? I mean, you can change into anyone? We could've been pulling the greatest of pranks this ENTIRE time".
