"Just Smile"

0 · 98 views · located in Layerverse

a character in “World Lapse”, as played by rockerr69


Name: Chester Macintyre

Aliases: Chess

Gender: Male

Age: 21

Occupation: Student (Second year studying Mechanical engineering at Miskantonic University, Arkham, Mass.), Part timer at 'Jojo's Motorcycle Repair Shop'.

Appearance: Chester is around 5' 8" tall, and weighs around 156 lbs. There is nothing out of ordinary with the shape of his body, he's in good shape with a wirey muscle structure that stands out on his skinny body. He has long(ish) messy black hair, that he sweeps to the side so it falls slightly over his bright green left eye. He has delicate facial features, and slim wrists, making him a certified 'pretty boy' the eyes of his peers.

Apparel: Chess has an attachment to the red plaid hoodie he owns, which he is usually seen wearing. He also likes the colour purple, which is reflected in his usual choice of t-shirt. He is also usually seen in skinny jeans.


Personality: Chess is a flamboyant character. Loud, cheerful, always talkative, despite his unfortunate past. He is a bit of a loser, enjoying such popular media as anime and comics, which add to his already blooming social status. He is known as a bit of prankster and party crasher amongst school circles, to the extent where proffesors aproach classrooms in which he resides with caution, and his name is added to pretty much any campus party guest lists as a formality. He has always had a soft spot for the fairer gender, and though he claim's it's because he grew up looking after his younger sister, it's just as likely that he just wants to get in their pants.


Equipment: Chess has the regular gear of a university student in America, and a 4' switchblade.

Powers: Chess is a human battery, a controller of electricity. He is able to create an electric field around parts his body, enough to stun or even kill a fully grown man, but not enough to arc more than two or three feet from his body, and is able to absorb electricity from his surroundings, to charge himself up for attacks, or to create a distraction to help him escape. This power can let him nullify the effects of electric shocks on his body. He is also able to travel almost instantaneously along anything that holds an electric current.


History: Chess was born in Port, England, three years before his younger sister, Jacklyn. He decided he wanted to go study in America after having a run in with a peculiar American tourist who gave Chess some peculiar words of advice to cheer him up before disappearing away into Europe: "If the world gets you down, even if you can't see any way out of the rut, just smile... Smile knowing you won't be down there forever. It's always worked for me."
When he turned eleven his mother died from a brain aneurysm while the rest of the family was out, he was the first to discover her body when he arrived home from school. For the next few years Chess had to take care of his sister in place of his mother.
At the age of fourteen his neighbor's cat managed to get stuck up near some power lines. Chess volunteered to get the cat down before the fire department arrived, and climbed up the pole. When he got to the top he tried to reach through the wires to grab the cat, and got shocked. He fell ten meters and smashed his head on the pavement. After that he remained in a coma for a week before recovering. His family had been devastated by the event, fearing they would lose him. Ever since then he has been extra cautious around electrical wires.
Chess took a gap year between the end of his A-levels, and his entrance to university. In this year he toured Asia visiting places like the Himalayas, The Great Wall, and Singapore.

Other: Chess had become a relatively good cook from the years of looking after his sister.

So begins...
