Emmy South

0 · 327 views · located in Lake Meadstone

a character in “The Decider”, as played by Issa

Description

Image
Image
'Flight? Why not?





Image
Image
Name: Emmeline Ivy South
Nickname: Emmy
Age: 17
Birth date: 1st June
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Camp: Fairview
Cabin: One

Powers:
Gravity Manipulation
'Let's do zero gravity! Then we can fly'
Emmy has the ability to generate and manipulate graviton, a hypothetical elementary particle that mediates the force of a gravitation field. Emmy can bend gravity to make an are very 'heavy' or 'light', making objects either float with less gravity or be almost crushed with heavy gravity.

Emmy can alter to gravity of a particular area or repel/attract objects using herself as the epicentre. This particular skill isn't as well developed but Emmy is learning to draw objects towards her by making the gravity surrounding herself heavier. It works almost like telekinesis.

Weaknesses:
Thus far her main weakness is lack of skills. Emmy should, hypothetically, be able to use her power to generate miniature black holes that could crush objects into nonexistence. However she is still learning to alter gravity fields around herself.

She is prone to headaches and nosebleeds if she uses her power too much. The more she uses it and the bigger the area or object, the faster her energy is drained.

Emmy also needs to be concentrating extremely hard to use her gift. If her concentration is broken, her powers will stutter and she'll have to start again.

Fears:
Accidentally creating a black hole and destroying the world 'One wrong move and bam, the world is crushed into oblivion;
Losing her powers 'I love being able to make my room zero gravity, how would I live without that?'
Becoming Paralysed 'A fear I've had ever since my brother's accident.'

Hobbies:
Reading 'I love to lose myself in the pages of a book.'
Flying 'The best thing about my power is that I can alter the gravity around myself to fly.'

Thoughts: 'I've always been glad that I came to Fairview instead of Maydon, the atmosphere is so much friendlier and there's never any pressure to compete. Sure, if I was in Maydon I might be able to do things with my powers that I can't do now, but I know that eventually I'll master them;

Personality:
Emmy is a mixture of optimistic day-dreamer and distracted bookworm.

There are times when Emmy's mind can wonder, picturing events to come, unrealistic scenarios and whatever else her mind dreams up. She can often be found lazing in the sun while using her power to float objects around her. Her head is often stuck in the clouds and at times it can take several calls of her name before she'll realise someone is talking to her.

Emmy loves to read and when she finds a good book will generally be seen with her nose in it until she's finished reading. Her favourite way to read? Making her room zero gravity and read while floating in the air. Her powers are rarely used to harm or hinder others, the majority of what she uses them for are small, irrelevant tasks. If there's an item across the room she'll change the gravity between her and it so that she doesn't have to move. Some might call this aspect of her lazy, but Emmy prefers to think of it as energy saving.

Emmy unfortunately, lacks any coordination when it comes to sports. Throw an object at Emmy and she's more than likely to drop it. Luckily, given her power to control gravity, Emmy can stop most objects before they crash on the floor.

Emmy has always been a friendly person. She's never been shy of introducing herself to strangers or striking up a conversation. If the conversation dies you can guarantee that she'll have some quirky fact to start it going again. Emmy tries not to judge people and will only outright dislike someone if they give her good reasons. She trusts easily and is inclined to believe the best in people. At times this can make her seem slightly gullible.

Emmy has always done well enough in school, a surprising thing given her habit of drifting off in class. She does possess a decent mind, but often doesn't feel the need to prove her intelligence. It's enough for her that she can think, she doesn't see the need to prove to others. She takes that approach about most things. She knows some people may find her personality off putting and frustrating, but as long as she's happy with who she is she sees no reason to change herself.

History:
Emmy was born to Maggie and Leo South, a pair of happy early-childhood teachers who instilled their love of life into Emmy and her older sisters. As the youngest child Emmy was often the one being looked after, she was the baby of the family after all and as such was constantly being mothered by her family.

Even from a young age Emmy was 'away with the fairies' as her mother always termed it. She would often wonder off as a passing fancy took her attention and be found chatting happily with a neighbour or reading high up in a tree. Her behaviour was slightly worrying to her parents, hence the reason why her mother, father and two older sisters constantly felt like they had to watch out for her.

Emmy always enjoyed school. She made friends and enjoyed the time spent in class, but most of all she loved the access to the school library. The library became her haunt and it was there that her powers first became evident. A particularly persistent bully had the girl cornered one rainy day when she was nine. His taunts were harsh, but it was his treatment of her favourite book that finally pushed her over the edge. He grabbed it from her hands and threatened to throw it out the window into the rain. With a flash of anger Emmy unknowingly unleashed her power, smashing the boy - and the surrounding books - into the ground as the gravity increased.

It took less than a week before Emmy's uncle arrived, explaining that he could help train Emmy with her gift. While she has never been too fussed with being all powerful she has worked hard to work on her power. Her family has always been supportive and their protectiveness only seemed to increase after they discovered that she was special. Understandably they were scared that if the wrong sort of people heard about her gift then she would be used to hurt others.

Camp Fairview has been a huge help. It's her second year at the camp now and she is looking forward meeting new and old friends.

Other: Anything else you want to add.

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.



Image Image
Outfit
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.

Outfit
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.

Outfit
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.

Bret had started to make his way to the Amphitheater. "Let's see what this is all about..." He saw people from the other camp were there, one fidgeting, the other staring him down. He didn't know either of them, and didn't really care to either. He wasn't really paying too much attention walking there, only looking around to see who else was there.

He spotted someone he recognized. She was from another cabin, but still in the same camp. He watched her go towards the Amphitheater, reading a book. Looking closer, he saw her float in the air and softly land, finishing her book. She walked over to seat in the front row. "Holy shit.." Now Bret was interested, and ran the rest of the way. Slowing down approaching her, not wanting to run into her and knock her over.

Bret took a seat next to the girl before turning his head to talk to her. "That was pretty neat right there. Gee, I'd to something to like that, it'd be a nice running start and hope ya glide a bit. Man reading and flying... that must be like, walking and chewing bubble gum, while juggling chainsaws."

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.

Outfit
(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.

Adalyn left her cabin, and started her trek to the amphitheater. As she walked, she let her mind wander to the thought of the game she was about to partake in. The thought of pitting the camps against each other didn't really appeal to her. What was the point, to see which camp was stronger? Even though she didn't understand it, she didn't let it agitate her. The game was also a small problem for her, seeing as her power wasn't that useful on the offensive; persuasion is more of a defence. It was possible to be offensive if her power was used creatively, she would just have to figure it out.

The amphitheater wasn't that far from her cabin, so it only took a few short minutes to reach it. As she went in, she spotted a small number of campers already there. Among them, Nona caught her eye, sprawled on her back. As she passed her, she couldn't help but send a glare in her direction. It was safe to say the two didn't get along well. Up in the front row, she saw her fellow Fairview campers, and went to sit with them. "Hey guys," she greeted. She knew people were somewhat wary around her, due to her capabilities, so she just left it at that.

Her attention turned to the camp directors on the stage in front of them, awaiting as they explained the rules of the game. It wasn't her first time playing, so she already knew the rules, but they went ahead and did this every year.

Emmy hadn't been seated long before she was joined by a fellow Fairview camper. He wasn't in her cabin, but she recognised him from one of the other cabins. Bret was his name, he was a camper that she hadn't had much to do with until now,
"That was pretty neat right there. Gee, I'd to something to like that, it'd be a nice running start and hope ya glide a bit. Man reading and flying... that must be like, walking and chewing bubble gum, while juggling chainsaws." He had obviously seen her floating in the air while reading, a trick she hadn't consciously done.
Emmy shrugged, a smile on her face as she shook her head,
"Juggling chainsaws?" Emmy giggled, finding the imagery behind the words quite funny, "I wouldn't go that far." Perhaps to someone who couldn't manipulate their gravity and fly it looked hard, but to Emmy it was one of the easier things to do.

A moment later Cain sat down on her other side,
"Hey Emmy, how's it going?" He said as he joined her. Emmy grinned at him, pleased that her friend had joined her. Cain and Emmy shared cabin one in fairview and had become friends.
"It's going great!" Emmy declared with a grin, "I can't wait for this game to begin." She added, making sure to include Bret in the conversation too.
Cain's attention slid down to the book in Emmy's hands. He attempted to read the title,
"Good book?" He asked. Emmy angled the book so he could read the title and nodded happily,
"Catch-22" She said, reading the title, "Crazy and confusing, but a great read.

It wasn't long before another fairview camper joined the group. Adalyn sat down with the three, a simple "Hey guys." her only greeting.
"HI Adalyn." Emmy replied with a friendly smile.

Emmy glanced around the amphitheatre. The seats were still relatively empty, but there was still plenty of time for people to arrive. Emmy caught sight of Nona seated at the back, her face seemed to be set in a permanent smirk as she surveyed those below her. Emmy knew that Nona could copy people's powers, a trick that could mean even now she was acquiring Emmy's gravity manipulation. Emmy hated the thought of someone else being able to control gravity, not because she wanted to keep the power as her own, but because she knew how dangerous it could be in the wrong hands. Emmy just had to hope that Nona wouldn't know how to use it yet.

"So, what do you reckon?" Emmy asked, bringing her full attention back to those sitting around her, "Fairview has it in the bag?" She asked with a grin. Sure, Fairview might not have the same strict rules as Maydon, but there was a lot to be said for enjoying yourself. Emmy often felt that people from her camp were able to work together a whole lot better because there wasn't that whole competitive, ranked thing going on.
