Personality: |Friendly||Needy||Vain||Insecure|
Crystal likes to think of herself as a people person and loves to talk to people, making new friends and being all round social. She is friendly, constantly striking up conversations, she hates the thought of being alone. Some people thinks she's needy, constantly wanting to be part of the conversation and being around people. She hates the thought of being alone and can get shaky and feels claustrophobic when no ones around. When she makes a new friend she can get a bit clingy, though will do anything, anything at all to stop someone from leaving her or getting annoyed with her.

She's also very vain, spending allot of time in front of a mirror to make sure that she's pretty. Despite this she actually has low self-esteem, thinking that if she left the house without the latest outfit or makeup and hair that didn't take her three hours that she's ugly and people don't want to spend time with her.

She has some serious abandonment issues that stem from her early childhood and teenage years. These can manifest themselves into fits of tears if she is left alone for too long or her becoming overly emotional when someone comes to talk to her, ending in her hugging the person or become hysterical.

She tries to keep all this under wraps though, thinking that if she tells anyone about her insecurities that she'll be pushed away or laughed at. She wishes to meet someone she knows she'll be able to trust and tell them everything and that they'd understand and accept it.

History: Crystal is the youngest in a family of four. She has two brothers and a sister. She had a happy, normal family life, she was loved by her parents and her siblings quickly got accustomed to having another member of the family around. Though that all changed when Crystal was four. As if her name had been some sort of prophecy she accidentally turned her arm into a diamond. Her entire family had been shocked and had instantly taken her to the hospital to see what was wrong. By the time they reached the hospital her arm had reverted to normal.

All sorts of checks were made, and finally they discovered a mutation in her genetic sequence that they couldn't place. When Crystal couldn't replicate what had happened the doctors brushed it off and told her parents that they must have imagined it and that despite the abnormality that from what they could tell, it was nothing to worry about.

But over the next year she would turn into diamond when she was incredibly happy or felt like she needed to protect herself. It came to the point that while her family tried to reconcile with the fact that Crystal was different her father couldn't take it. One night shortly before Crystal's fifth birthday her father packed his bags and left, with not even a note to explain where he had gone. Crystal, not understanding what had happened spent several weeks looking out the window and down the driveway, expecting her father to come home.

Until she could control her powers Crystal was home schooled. She was introduced to the public school system at the beginning of middle school, by which point her entire family had come to terms with Crystal's abnormality and usually used it as a punchline in many inside jokes. At the age of 14 she fell in love with a classmate. They dated for over a year at which point Crystal discovered that he had been cheating on her with her best friend and then left his excuse being "She's hotter than you..". Shortly after she lost all her friends who sided with Crystal's ex-best friend and her ex-boyfriend. This, coupled with her father leaving her is the source of her emotional insecurity and her need to know that she's loved and that people care.

Other: Her pet cat, Basil, is almost constantly at her side, so that she's never alone.

So begins...

The Amphitheatre
12.30 pm


Image

Midday has passed and the campers from each side have just finished lunch. Many slowly wonder towards the amphitheatre, the meeting place for the beginning of the game. At 1pm the camp directors will begin by explaining the rules for the capture the flag. Maydon and Fairview might not get along, but the directors have made sure to set out a variety of rules to give the impression of cooperation. If those rules are actually followed, well that's another question.
Until then each camper has an opportunity to analyse their opponents. Or, alternatively, they might just want to have as much time to prepare themselves for the coming 'game'. Whatever they decide everyone must be at the amphitheatre in time and ready to begin the Decider.

Nona Syborn sat at the back of the amphitheatre, halfway along the row. Her legs were cross and her elbows rested behind her as she reclined on the sloped grass. A small smirk played across her face as her eyes swept across the arriving students. Nona had made her way early to the amphitheatre, all the better to sort through the gifts of the campers from Fairview. She knew that there were strong powers in the other camp and the longer she had to assess what was what, the better her ability to replicate them. Of course it also let her assess more than just each camper's power.

Her smirk turned to an expression of disdain as a power on the edge of her range indicated an approaching camper. Emmy South wondered into the amphitheatre, her expression as empty and distracted as could be expected. Nona had never liked the girl, but she had to admit that Emmy's power of gravity manipulation was one she never passed a chance to replicate. Luckily Nona would soon have a vast range of gifts to pick from. She would wait until the games actually started too, all the better to lengthen the time she could replicate each gift. She had already decided that, Markson Maydon's, Maydon's director, power was one she would use in the game. Sure, she could only create blasts of wind and balls of flame so far, but give her a chance and she'd soon be able to manipulate all the elements like he could.

Nona's eyes scanned those present and those arriving, hoping to find someone she liked. Josh was always fun to flirt with and since he was in fairview she wasn't bored with him yet. Or perhaps she would amuse herself by playing with one of Maydon's shyest. Her eyes fell upon Noah Fenton, inhabitant of cabin three and currently fidgeting nervously as he waited for everyone to arrive. As if he sensed her gaze Noah frooze and Nona felt her interest slip away.

Emmy was reading, the book currently held most of her attention and if it wasn't for the almost subconscious use of her powers she most likely would have fallen over long ago. She bit her lip as she flipped the page over and kept walking. She was aimed vaguely in the direction of the amphitheatre, it was almost time for the game to begin. But Emmy was determined to finish her book before that happened, which was why she was now walking and reading.

A set of steep stairs appeared in front of her. Instead of tripping and falling down them she simply continued walking in a straight line, her powers letting her float over the top of them. She really didn't even need to move her legs since she could basically make herself fly. She could just float to the amphitheatre if she wanted to really. A moment later she stopped, simultaneously realising that she was several feet above the stairs and coming to the end of her book. She closed the book with a satisfied thump and a moment later lowered herself to the ground. Then, leaving gravity to act naturally, she walked the rest of the way to the amphitheatre.

The area itself had once been used as the gathering place for when the camps were one, or at least that's what Augustus Axel one of the Fairview staff members had told her. Whatever it had once been, the amphitheatre was now used to stage the beginning and end of the annual grudge match between the two camps.

The stands were relatively empty at the moment. Emmy spotted Nona at the back, her eyes scanning the campers for someone to bully no doubt. Others were seated already and many were still to come. Emmy took a seat in the front row on the fairview side of the gathering. She rested her elbows on her knees and her chin in her hands and waited for the fun to begin.

Noah was nervous. He disliked the thought of going into this 'game'. It would, undoubtedly, turn violent. He knew that there were grudges, he even had some of his own. But where he differed from some of the other campers was in his powers. His powers were only good for escaping. They weren't offensive at all. Others had the type of powers that could start wars.
Extreme sports, bungy jumping and so on were things he could handle. He loved those kind of challenges, but put him face to face with another person who was threatening him and Noah became slightly less than willing. Sure, he could basically escape any situation but he liked to think that that was also because he knew when to avoid them too.

Noah sat at the front, closest to the exit that led back to camp Maydon and his safe cabin. It was his habit to make sure he had a quick getaway. He could feel eyes on the back of his neck. Perhaps it was his powers or perhaps it was instinct, but he stopped fidgeting and soon felt the pressure vanish. Feeling relieved Noah stretched out his legs and glanced up at Mr Maydon, the director of his camp. He was a hard man who believed that a regimented camp was better than what went on at Fairview. Noah had never been too sure. He thought that Fairview always looked like a lot more fun for someone like him with a less powerful ability.

He shook his head, now was hardly the time to be thinking about what camp he preferred. He was about to fight them after all. Well avoid was the better way to put it. Perhaps he would be tasked with running avoidance, or holding the far flank. Just as long as it wasn't anything too central and in the action. There was usually some discussion amongst each camp over the plan of attack. Maydon's plan was usually centered around the campers from cabin one.

Cain whistled as he walked towards the amphitheater, hands shoved into he pockets of his jeans. His merriment ended as he encroached upon the grassy steps of the amphitheater. There weren't many people that occupied the stands, the spattering of campers letting him know that he was early and therefore would have to wait for the beginning of the game. With an overly exasperated sigh he scouted the area for the ideal place to sit, deciding on a spot beside Emmy, leaning back on his elbows with a grin on his face, "Hey Emmy, how's it going?"

His eyes flickered down momentarily down towards the book that was clasped in her hands, raising an eyebrow as he tried to catch the title of the book. When he was unsuccessful he returned his attention to Emmy, "Good book?"

All that he could do now was wait for the games, and by consequence, the fun to begin with the official opening of the games after a quick pep talk about the basic rules and how people should take care not to injure each other. It was the same every year, Cain wasn't quite sure why they repeated it any more. He knew that he at least had that sum-bitch memorized by now.

(Just as a side note.. I've never made an outfit for a character before and I don't follow the fashions... so I'm just going by my gut instinct here...)





Crystal stood at the back of the amphitheater, looking about the small mass of campers that were already congregating here. She felt nausea knotting her stomach as she stood there. She wanted to turn around and leave, to go back and fix up her appearance. Anything to forestall the judgement that would be bestowed upon her. At least in her own mind. She looked down at her outfit and did some last minute adjustments as she forced herself to take deep, calming breaths, "No one's paying attention to you Crystal, why would they? So just stay calm. Sit down and get through this. Maybe even catch up with one of your friends, OK?"

With the pep talk done Crystal walked forth with more purpose, each step that she took deliberate and letting her hips sway as her eyes scanned for anyone that may judge her, making snide comments about her appearance behind her back or openly sneer. One would think with this being her third year in attendance Crystal would feel more comfortable in her skin here and no long be so concerned with the trivial judgements of others. That having gone trough the trials of high school that she would have left such adolescent thoughts behind her. Yet Crystal seemed unable, or unwilling, to let herself believe that such things stopped and was obsessed with not allowing anyone to judge her. Yet the fear remained.

She swallowed as she saw Nona, the woman was notorious for being a bully, making Crystal want to stay as far from her as humanely possible. She sat on the back row of he amphitheater, hugging herself as she rested her chin on her knees, looking down towards the leaders of the camps, awaiting instruction.

Crystal both loved and loathed the game. She loved how it brought everyone together and it was one of the few times she felt at ease, knowing everyone was too absorbed in the game to care about her appearance or let alone if she made a few social mistakes. But she hated the violent and competitive side of it, she was easily spotted when using her powers and although she felt calm around her teammates it was almost guaranteed the other side were talking smack about her.
