a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by AiteCipher

Description

Name
Michelle Faraday Sinclair
(Goes by Faraday)

Age
Seventeen

Gender
Female

Abilities
- Shadow Evasion: Faraday can slip into the shadows at any time provided there are some. While inside the shadows, she is untouchable (except through magic) and cannot touch anything.
- Limited pyrokinesis - She can move it and manipulate it, but she can't create it.

Physical Appearance
Image

Faraday is tall, at 5'9 even without her hated heels, and keeps her red hair cropped and restrained at all times with either a headband or a handful of bobby pins. Though she's hardly a fan of fashion, she does her best to keep her appearance up if only for the same of manipulating others. She's pretty, if not flat-chested, with a well-formed face, milky skin, and a smattering of freckles to compliment her delicate features. Her limbs are long and spindly. She looks weak, and she is, but she's noticeably good with her hands. Her fingers are long and tapered, though she has a tendency to cover them with gloves to keep the scars and burns out of sight. When not being forced by her father and other societal expectations to wear dresses and carry useless clutches, she dresses in well-fitting turtlenecks and white pants. She seems to dislike color altogether even though emerald green suits her hazel eyes well.

Bio/History
Faraday was never expected to become what she did. A child born to a marriage between an old-money heiress and an enterprising young businessman, her childhood years often left her abandoned in the hands of the house staff. Even they, however, could hardly keep the curious toddler contained; Faraday discovered her love for science at the age of three after disemboweling a bird to "find out how it worked." Faraday has always had a fascination for the mechanics of the world, and, having always had everything from business connections to radioactive materials at her fingertips, she could never take no for an answer. How could she, when she had been able to just take what she wanted?

Faraday had discovered her power to slip into the shadows at the age of six, though even her hyper-analytical mind never understood it until ten. The seeming supernaturality of it all has always plagued her, and to this day it bothers her not knowing the exact mechanics of her own body. She can use her ability, and she has, to her hearts content never knowing how it works. To Faraday, a girl seemingly without emotions and certainly without regret, this is a capital sin.

Still, she knows her abilities are an irreplaceable tool in getting what she wants. Funding for an engineering project? Why bother asking when she could just have it? With no one having the will or wit to reprimand the girl, Faraday has grown from a misguided, eerie little girl into a cunning and fearsome young woman. Having gained enough social skills from wandering her fathers' ballrooms and conferences as a child, she knows how to blend in even when all she wants is to be alone. She knows how to play emotions, fatal flaws so foreign to her. She knows how to mold her voice into something soft and sweet yet sticky like butterscotch, to entrap men with her seemingly endless wit. When it all winds down, however, Faraday needs nothing more than her self-built basement laboratory and something to build. She's grown to be surprisingly reliant— perhaps due to her inherent hatred for these logic-less people she can't ever understand— for a girl who's never been a day without the possibility of her every whim being fulfilled. Though she's brilliant enough to know not to be spoiled, she stops at nothing to serve herself and her projects.

Faraday doesn't take no for an answer. That's why she lit the fire— and couldn't stop smirking until the flames began to lick her fingertips.

Notes+Extras
Faraday's fortés lie mostly in engineering, robotics, and artificial intelligence. While she's brilliant at mathematics and had made significant advances in artificial intelligence theory, she's not particularly knowledgeable about history and is actually quite sheltered and unaware of the world around her. She publishes her papers under the pseudonym Michael Z. Faraday.

Faraday has an unhealthy obsession with fire and is never without a lighter.

Michelle Faraday Synclair's Story

Faraday ambled through the bar, taking in its odd emptiness. It was quiet, and from what she'd heard about the place, that was an oddity. She'd done her hair back into a braid and clutched her lab coat to her chest, looking a bit young to be holding onto one but staking her claim to it nonetheless. She set it down on a chair and walked toward the bar to order one thing or another. Never mind the fact that she was a good four years under her home country's legal drinking age; she just needed something that burned nicely. Faraday had some steam to let off, and there was nothing like fire to help with that.

Faraday sat cross-legged on a barstool, her fingers drumming impatiently as she waited for her drink to arrive. After a moment, she produced a tiny mechanical bug from her pants pocket and let it skitter around on the bar. It approached the edge, then took off flying. Faraday watched with boredom but hops to her feet the moment she realizes it: the bug wasn't wound up properly, and it's bound to run out of energy soon. Just as she did, however, the bug froze midair and dropped down toward The Mysterious Stranger.

Faraday stood up, her lighter clutched in one hand as she approached the Mysterious Stranger. Her bug was completely devoid of power, so it thankfully wasn't about to fly off. She said nothing as she passed the stranger by to snatch her bug back, not seeming as though she was terribly interested in talking about the bug.

Faraday took her bug and thanked the stranger, clutching it in her hand as tightly as she could as though hiding it in her palm would absolve her of her embarrassment. She turned and ducked back to the chair where she'd left her lab coat. Where was her drink, already? She only had two hours to kill before the samples were ready, and she really needed to let off some steam.

Faraday was busy staring at her lighter, running her fingers over the engravings on its surface. She was clearly too absorbed in her own thoughts to notice the man creeping towards her.

Faraday glanced up from the objects in her hands to catch a glimpse of the new arrivals. Were things heating up? She couldn't know just yet. But her drink had arrived, and with it came a grin on Faraday's face. The redhead flipped her hair over her shoulder and poured the tiniest bit on the table, then flicked open her lighter and watched as one tiny wrt patch erupted into beautiful yellow flame. She glanced around, kicking back in her chair. This was killing time done right.
