Charles

Quiet and Smart he prefers to keep to himself.

0 · 243 views · located in Infrai Island

a character in “Infrai Island”, as played by TechGorilla

Description

Name: Charles
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male

Charles is a tall fat guy of age unknown although he looks close to 20. His facial features are pretty common but he is a little on the fat side.

Power: The ability to Control Liquids. Not in the traditional sense though, he can't levitate or freeze water. It is more like absorption of liquids. He is capable of absorbing liquids through his skin and secret them back. This includes sweat, blood or any other type of liquid. He can also absorb those liquids though solid objects like clothes. In smaller amounts he is able to absorb moisture out of the air.

Personality

Charles is an introvert. He is quiet but not shy, yet he prefers to keep to himself.

History

Charles doesn't remember much of anything. A side effect of the experiments he was told.

So begins...

Charles

Charles paced through the small dark room. A thousand thoughts were going through his head.

How long has it been 4 days, a week? Those Bastards, I show them something new and they lock me in here. But I know what they are going. “I know what you are doing” Charles yelled while looking at the Camera in his cell.

It was a small cell; there was a single small and dim light on the ceiling and no windows. A small bed and chair where his only companions. The only source of daylight came from a small hole in the door that only opened once a day to give him his lunch. In other words it was nothing special, except that it was especially damp. After last test where Charles showed them his ability to collect and absorb liquid out of thin air they decided to change his cell. They hermitically closed the cell and started humidifying the air hoping to see how much Charles could last without directly drinking water.

I could kill them, I know I could. I just need to touch them, drain a little moisture out of a vein and “pop”, instant internal bleeding. But no, it’s too early, I could probably kill one maybe too but I’m not strong enough. I need to be able to this without touching them.

They thought they could get rid of me before, but I surprised them with this new ability. This demonstration should give me a couple of months before they decide I’m not useful anymore.

Charles played with the idea. He will have to find something else to give them in a couple of months, but for now he will train and get stronger.

Tony
He turned his head toward Vivid, hearing the girl call out to him. Shooting Nick one last scathing look, he walked down to her cell, even as he heard Brooklyn scolding her for speaking out. "Nice to see you're doing well, Vivid," he said emotionlessly. Tony always tried not to show any emotion one way or another when he spoke to the subjects. He didn't want them to think he was their friend, but he didn't want them to hate him either... those poor unfortunate souls, he thought, slightly nauseated at the thought of how... different they were.

He glanced down his clipboard and flipped through the pages. Who hadn't been tested yet? He looked up and saw Hawkins being led away by Yohance. Let's see...

Making a decision, Tony pulled out his keys and shoved them into the cell of Brooklyn Jones. "Jones. Out." He glanced over his shoulder and snapped, "You too, Charles." The boy had been yelling at his camera again. He wondered whether Charles knew that the cameras were only turned on when there was some kind of commotion.

Then, he made a quick, and probably unwise, decision. Unlocking Vivid's cell as well, he told the three subjects, "Time for testing, kittens."

They were only supposed to hurt subjects once a day. But hey-- Nick hadn't filled out any paperwork. Nobody would know if Vivid got a little extra attention. She fascinated him so.

Brooklyn

Before Brooklyn knew it, Tony had made his way toward her cell and shoved the keys into the keyhole, unlocking it with a bit of a jingle. She hated being told what to do, as if she was some sort of child or animal, she wasn't either of those nor was anyone else there. A soft growl could be heard escape from her lips as she let herself slowly touch down onto the floor, softly.

Brooklyn Hesitantly followed behind him, watching as he let out both Vivid and Charles as well. There wasn't very much a doubt in her mind that Tony would be sick minded enough to want to give out pain to more than one subject.

"I'm not a cat," she said under her breath, keeping her distance enough away from Tony to feel safe within herself. It wasn't very often that feeling safe came along, even if trying to feel that way.

Tabitha

Tabitha walked down the long corridor of the facility, clipboard in hand as she wrote down onto her. The woman's shoes made quite a loud 'click' and 'clack' on the hard floor beneath her feet. It seemed as another typical day within the place, subjects screaming due to the pain most testers placed on them, others cooped up in their cells after said events, all the same. As she continued her way down the hall she noticed a couple of her colleagues standing around, one of them was taking three of the test subjects for most likely a dose of pain. The other she wasn't very sure about at the moment, no likely no good though.

When she had gotten close enough to them she stopped, looking towards the two than at the subjects with the one. "Good evening Tony, Nick," she greeted them both kindly, "to you as well Brooklyn, Vivid, and Charles."

She'd always liked greeting the subjects as friendly as she could, it kept her in a sense of mind that she was only doing this for scientific purposes, though it never really felt like it. "Going off to do some work?" she questioned curiously, knowing the answer already of course.

#, as written by Haas33
Vivid didn't mind Tabitha. She wasn't rude to the subjects, but Vivid knew that in the body of her's was a cold merciless heart, like all other so called 'scientists'. She was even friendlier than Tony, or, at least that is the view she got from her. Vivid gave a much less vicious snort in derision. "Work. Sure. Must be what they call it these days," she said, sarcastically. Torture is more like it. She cocked her eyebrow, which turned a beautiful shade of blue, to match the streak in her hair. If she wanted to, she could escape, right now, right here. Not like they could shoot her down dead, and doubled with invisibility, they would be shooting blind. But where would she go? She was on an island after all. And who would help her through the awful sickness that would wash over her? It would never work. Not without help. Not without a boat. No, she wouldn't be able to escape this dreadful island. Never. A thought pricked into her mind. A horrible thought. But oh, so very tempting. What if she cooperated? Let them test her without difficulty? Preform the tests to the best of her ability? Gain their trust? Help them? She would be treated better. Much better. And she wouldn't have to worry about escaping, when she wouldn't need to. If she was on their side...... No. She pushed the thought from her mind, but it still lingered on the edges. Tickling her thoughts. What if?

Charles

Tired of training Charles decided to take a break. Eyes closed Charles sat in his bed when he heard the sound of the door.

“Time to eat already?” he softly said to himself. But this time it was different, the door opened completely. Charles raised his head, “Is the torture over?” Charles said low enough so that no one could hear.

He stood up and walked towards the door. His eyes were still getting used to the light but he could see there were a bunch of different people by the door. This is Weird he thought. “What now, are we going to have a team building exercise today?”

He stepped outside and looked around recognizing one by one the faces of fellow prisoners. He recognized the testers too but he didn’t feel like paying much attention to them today. He was concentrated on the possibility of escaping.

“Hello” he said to no one in particular.

Brooklyn

Brooklyn took a glance over to Charles when she had heard him speak, nothing more than just a simple hello, towards everyone she presumed. “Hello,” she said in return to him before turning her head away, wondering what sort of tests were going to happen today.

When she’d looked away from the man she saw one of the scientists pull on some of Vivid’s hair, such cruel treatment. Brooklyn only hoped that the testing would get done and over with, but when she was out of her cell that was always a way she could be able to break free from the facility.

Without the walls in her cells confining her, she could easily phase through and out the walls of the facility and be free. Yet, there wasn’t any doubt in her mind they’d end up finding her, they were on an island after all.

[Tabitha

Tabitha let out a small, sarcastic laugh towards the man. His odd ways of trying to poke fun of her never really bothered her in the least, she only had to deal with him here and here only. “Working of course, I don’t just come down here to treat the subjects like dirt and get some sort of… nasty pleasure out of it like you do,” she looked at him with a dull smile.

“Me? Break a nail? No I don’t much care about that, they’re only nails nothing more, I’m not all about looks you know,” she flashed him her hand, her nails had been trimmed down nice and short, how she liked them.

“I like testing for more of a scientific purpose, I am a scientist after all,” Tabitha paused from speaking when she’d heard Bailey yelling down the hall, screaming about something. Soon nick went walked down towards Bailey’s cell, not before pulling on Vivid’s hair, causing her to give a slight glare. That man didn’t have any limits what-so-ever.

With a shrug of her shoulders she turned around to Tony, giving him one more look before walking off down the corridor, towards one of the cells. It was Jak Ross’s cell, the one who was able to morph into shadows. “Alright, Jak, it’s time for some testing.. you’ll come peacefully yes?,” she questioned before opening the door to the cell, quickly turning the flood lights off that kept him from escaping under the shadow of under the door.

((Urghhh, really sorry about this late reply, guys.))

Tony
Irritated, he slapped Nick's hand away from Vivid. "Really, Nick? You can't keep your hands off my test subjects for five seconds?" he snapped. "Oh, don't look at me like that! This is my block of testing time; therefore, they are my subjects-- at least from three to five. But that's neither here nor there. You!" Without any warning, his head snapped to the right and glared at Charles. "Please quit doing that. You're giving us these shifty eyes. You can't escape, give it up." Nick had really gotten him riled up. He gave a quick nod acknowledging Tabitha, but that was about it. He didn't approve of her 'fraternization' with the subjects.

Heck, he didn't really approve of any of the other testers. He had somewhat of a superiority complex.

"Follow me," he ordered the subjects, narrowing his eyes at Nick as they passed.

At first, Tony had been a little nervous leading subjects around the facility, he himself unarmed. But by now, he had grown comfortable with it. They never tried anything, and even if they did, they would never escape. He was also fully aware of the fact that if they decided to jump him and use him as a hostage, the facility would allow them to kill him before they let the subjects escape. But that was a risk he was willing to take for science. His hands started buzzing just thinking about what he was going to do. He was just itching to get his hands on them today.

"Today," he announced, opening a door into a plain white room, equipped with only three treadmills, "I will be testing your adrenaline, endurance, and fatigue rates. Get on the treadmills." He narrowed his eyes at Charles. "You don't want to give me trouble."

Tony
Perhaps if he hadn't had that spat with Nick, Tony would have been paying more attention to the subjects and noticed Vivid's strange meekness, but his mind was otherwise preoccupied. Muttering to himself about 'no standards in this place', he rummaged around the cabinets and produced small rubber electrodes, the shape of suction cups. Thin black wires trailed from them and disappeared into a shifty-looking machine that he placed on the counter.

"We'll start with low speed for the time being. But you'll probably be running for upwards of four hours." Tony passed by in front of each of the subjects, sterilizing the tips of the electrodes with alcohol-soaked cotton balls. "This will hurt." He pressed the electrodes onto Vivid's skin-- one on each temple, several on the fleshy undersides of the arm, a few on the hands.

He did the same to Brooklyn and Charles. Small needles poked out when he pressed a button on the device, burrowing into the subjects' flesh. It actually didn't hurt much, just a tiny prick, not as bad as even a shot.

He paused before activating the electrodes stuck onto Vivian. For whatever reason, he had a soft spot for the subject (a fact he would be deeply ashamed of if it got out to the other scientists). Her colorful skin bedazzled him. But his face was still hard and impassive as he pressed the button, watching the colors swirl on her skin.

Brooklyn

“Oh, great, just I wanted to do today, run on a tread mill,” he said sarcastically, a look of irritation seen on her face as she looked towards the treadmills in the room. It had taken her a moment to get on one of the machines, but soon enough she found her way on to one, no matter how much she didn’t want to.

Brooklyn heard Vivid’s voice talking towards the man, asking what speed and how long they’d be running for. “What a little suck up,” she commented, only taking a moment to glance over towards the girl, her eyes staring at her just long enough till Tony came to press the electrodes onto their skin. When the needles of the devices had poked out she barley even made a wince. They were annoying, but practically painless none-the-less.

Tabitha

Tabitha let out just a small chuckled to herself as she heard Jak talk, “oh Mr. Ross, just because you’re power isn’t the kind that could harm a person, you’ve more than enough potential to harm someone in a physical way with your bare hands. Doesn’t take much to do that.” She glanced back towards the boy as she continued to walk down the corridor, finally finding a room she could use.

Taking a left turn she entered, stopping to turn around and make sure Jak was right behind her. Satisfied with knowing he was she gestured for him to take a seat from the one she had already sat herself in. “Make yourself comfortable, Jak, I’m not here to harm you in the sick foul ways you’ve seen my coworkers do. I’m merely here for the science darling,” her words were soft and harmless. She went out of her way to make her subjects feel comfortable, no point in being harsh it only makes them less cooperative.

Tony
The tester sighed when he heard Brooklyn's comment. "You'd do well to act more like Vivid here." He walked past all of the treadmills, flipping them on to low speeds, no elevation; just easy jogging. He'd made sure that the room was hot for the past two hours; they would have no relief from cool temperatures.

He sat in his chair and waited. For the purpose of this test, they had to really get going. He wanted to grind them down to exhaustion-- n-no, not wanted. He had to. It was the purpose of the test. Tony drummed his fingers against the counter, a sour expression on his face, lost in thought.

His watch beeped softy, alerting him of the ten-minute mark. He swung his chair around and to face the device that the electrodes' wires were attached to. He fiddled with the dials.

That's when he administered the first electric shock.

Brooklyn

Brooklyn rolled her eyes as Tony walked by, turning on all the treadmills on low, an easy little jog yet nothing more so far. “Why would I want to do that? Throw away my dignity to treat you sadistic bastards better than you treat us? I’d rather loose a body part than something as disgusting as that,” she said towards the man as she started to jog on the treadmill.

The subject could feel her body start to accumulate sweat as she continued to jog, the warmth of the room speeding up the sweating process quite a bit. This sort of testing wasn’t as bad as what would usually happen, but with the heat the way it was, it might as well be as bad. Just for a moment she closed her eyes and let her mind wonder around for a bit, imagining a life beyond this hell hole.

Suddenly she felt an electric shock course through her body, no doubt the works of the stupid little electrodes on her body. She let out a faint growl and cringed slightly, her feet slowly phasing through the treadmill below her. Before she could phase through anymore she caught herself and pulled herself back up onto the treadmill, starting to jog once again.

After a few seconds she glanced over towards the other two, Vivid catching her attention greatly. The girl’s skin was a rainbow and colors and different designs, all seemed to be for the amusing pleasure of the tester though. It almost made her sick to her stomach, she might as well have been flirting with the man instead.


Tabitha

Tabitha listened to him talk about how the others would have gotten him out of his cell and such. She didn’t approve of how they did things, but there wasn’t anything she could very well do about it. “That’s it them though, this is me and this is how I run things,” she began, “I’ve never seen the point and all the harsh treatments you all get here and quite frankly it’s a little sickening if you ask me.”

Her clipboard was placed into her lap and she began to write a few things down to start with, just general things of how he looked before starting here experiment. The woman stood up and gestured for Jak to do the same, soon walking over to where she had placed and arranged selection of light sources. Different kinds of flashlights, lighters, matches, anything that would emit some sort of light.

“Alright, what we’re going to do today is calculate what kind of lights affect you the most. I know it’s painful for you but I promise it won’t be too terribly long, I’ll even give you a couple of pain killers to help with the pain when we’re done,” she looked at him with a soft smile before grabbing at the lowest source of light, a match.

“When you’re ready just tell me,” she said, holding the match towards the side of the box.

((I apologize greatly for my leave of absence. (: Family vacation. It was fun.))

Tony
He chewed on the top of his pen, scribbling something on his clipboard. The electrodes were constantly measuring heart rate, adrenaline production, and even perspiration, and he had to record it by the minute. Without looking up as Brooklyn bashed him, he said, "That can surely be arranged, my dear Brooklyn." Actually, he did wonder what kind of bearing her phasing ability would have on limb regeneration... he ought to follow up. He pulled out his Blackberry and made himself a memo.

He looked up at the yelps that signified that the first shock had taken place. It was very low voltage, very low wattage, but still startling, he was sure. He pointed his chewed-up pen at Brooklyn's feet. "Was that involuntary, that phasing there? Triggered by pain? A defense mechanism, perhaps?" As he said that, he turned up the power of the shock. The next one should be coming in five minutes. God, he hated this heat. He pulled out a handheld fan and placed it on the counter to cool himself off, making sure that it was pointing away from the test subjects.

((Don't worry about it *patpat* glad you had fun on your family vacation))

Brooklyn

Brooklyn rolled her eyes and continued to run, not bothering to talk back to him. She most likely knew they would cut off a limb just for their stupid experiments, not like they had anything better to do with their time than crap like that. Her arms crossed over her chest, she could feel her sweat falling down from her arms down onto the treadmill below.

“Yes it was involuntary and I don’t know what the hell it was, it could have been some kind of defense mechanism to keep myself from getting too hurt by you losers,” she almost shouted back to him. There wasn’t any way she couldn’t have noticed the little fan he’d taken out to cool himself off with. Couldn’t go through the heat like the rest of them she supposed, wimp.

Tabitha

“Well that’s a rather interesting start,” she said, writing down what Jak had to say how it felt.

“Alright let us try this next,” Tabitha grabbed a lighter from the table and in no time she had the thing lit up quite nicely. She preceded to point it towards the boy, waiting for what he had to say about the light source and the way it was affecting him. It wasn’t as if she was enjoying doing this to him, nor anything to any of the subjects that caused pain, but she always gave him something afterwards to help with any pain that was still there after.

“How does that feel?” she asked the boy.
