Name:James Robinson

Nickname: Jay or Shade

Gender: Male

Age: 18

Sexuality:Heterosexual

Mutant power: The ability to control and manipulate shadows into physical objects

Mutant Code Name: Shade

Description: James is a handsome young man, he is one of those guys who always makes sure he looks good before he leaves his room. His mutation has altered many of his features to match his powers, for example his eyes, they are unusually dark. His hair is dark which he has no real fixed style but he always seems too look good whether he jells it or not. He is reasonably tall at 6 foot 2 inches and is quite muscular and takes care of his body religiously too look good but also too keep himself in top shape if he is ever needed in a mission. He tends to wear dark colours, mostly because he likes the look of them but also it matches his power and James enjoys the idea of being tall, dark and handsome. He also has a tattoo on his right shoulder of a man dressed in all black standing still with his shadow stretched out in front of him holding a sword and with wings to show the power of shadow manipulation.

Personality: James is a very confident guy, he knows he is good looking and quite intelligent and thinks his power is very cool which gives him more confidence, despite not being able too fully control it. He tends to flirt a lot with women his age and sometimes older, using his looks and charm on any girl he has an interest in. He is always looking for fun thinking of plans for all his friends to go out and mess around which usually gets him into trouble back at the mansion, especially when it means some practical joke.. He's not all confidence and flirtatiousness though, underneath he is troubled mostly about his power, he is afraid of loosing control of his power or using it for the wrong reasons. It has the potential to be very powerful and dangerous which scares James and despite his confidence he is afraid that he may someday use it against the people he cares about. Deep down James also has a cynical side to him, he doesn't know if he trusts humans because after the incident that revealed his power people just stared at him looking horrified at his power. He felt like maybe they hated him for being a mutant, this makes him distrusting of humans and how they really feel about mutants.

Power: James' power is the ability to control and manipulate any clear shadow he see's for example he can make someones shadow perform different actions. He can also make a shadow change shape and turn it into what he wants. He can also make them become real physical objects in the real shape of whatever he wants that can be touched rather than just being flat on a surface. This enables him too make weaponry for example he tends to make a shadow sword or multiple guns, he also makes himself an armor that protects him from attack. However he hasn't got full control over his power yet. This means that the he can only make a shadow form into a certain shape for a certain amount of time. He also cant control shadows of a considerable size, however he is training to perfect his power. He has also lost control before which makes shadows move uncontrollably, but this only happens when he gets extremely angry.

History: James grew up in a rich family who are involved in property development in LA where he had a mother, father and two sisters, one older at 21 and the other is 16. He had a good lifestyle where he was always looked after well. He was the popular kid in school always got the girls and was a talented football (soccer) player. It seemed like the perfect life, nothing could go wrong, however when he turned 14 he started realizing his power, shadows started to move when he concentrated too heavily on something. It started troubling him in class and when he was playing sports. The shadows would just move, but then it started to get more serious the shadows started becoming real and he could touch them, this was then he started to try and control them. He would practice with the shadows and he could control small objects. This allowed him to have some influence over his power and he could hide it. However soon after he turned 18 a guy in his class tried too pick a fight with him and started talking about his sisters. James just flipped and a fight broke out. James got more and more angry and that's when it started. The shadows started moving and started taking shape of his biggest fears. All the shadows in the area turned into a demon that grabbed the boy he was fighting by the throat and started choking him. All the while James just watched with an evil smile. Then James' sister came out and pleaded for him too stop, he came to his senses and the beasts that were created disappeared. This was when Professor X found him, the next day the X-Men came and convinced his family to come too the mansion and learn to control his power. He is now one of the new kids at the mansion just trying to make it like his normal life at home.

It had been a few hours since James had arrived at the institute, Professor X brought him to the mansion himself with Storm. He didn't really know what to expect from this place. The professor had spoken about learning too control his power, James wasn't so sure if he could. Ever since the incident back at his old school he had a fear of his power, even though he loved them at the same time, he just didn't want to lose control again. James had been told to go get acquainted with the mansion on his own just so that he could get comfortable. He was supposedly rooming with some guy called Bobby who had been at the mansion for a while. James was walking around the gardens of the mansion, it was huge, even bigger than his old house back in LA, it could be very easy to get lost around there. So many rooms and so many people, James thought it would be a whole lot more smaller and less people, but at least there would be plenty of girls to talk too. People just seemed to freely use their powers around here, no one cared it was almost normal just for something to set on fire or float in the air out of no where.

James needed to collect his thoughts, this was crazy, he thought he was alone in this world, of course he knew there was plenty of other mutants but there was a whole lot more 'normal' people in the world. Even though it was thought that mutants were more accepted now, James knew that his kind were still seen as freaks. Before his powers were revealed he would talk to the other kids at school and they would talk about how they would love to get their hands on a mutant just to show them whose boss. James would try and keep out of those conversations and it became clear why to his friends, after the incident. When they found out they just looked at him like he was a monster. James didn't know if he could trust humans. He found a ledge to sit on and just watched the various mutants just going about their day.

James decided to have some fun he saw some kids shadow who was just going about his day. James raised his hand and made the guys own shadow appear straight in front of himself and he walked into his own shadow. The poor guy almost had a heart attack and James quickly made his shadow turn back to normal. James let out a little chuckle and decided not to scare any more people. He didn't want to get into too much trouble on his first day. James was on his own, no one to talk to no friends, how was he meant to get acquainted like the professor said, he didn't know anyone. He just decided to chill out and watch the other mutants and check out the girls.

Alexandra Calvo Clemente



“I’ve been everywhere in this stupid school… and yet I still haven’t found where to get regestrated!” Alex groaned in frustration, rubbing her temple. She wasn’t lying. She’d literally been everywhere. She eventually found the girls’ dorms hall, but she didn’t know what dorm she was in, so she just dumped her things in the hall and started walking around some more. At one point, she stumbled into the boy’s dorm wing. She got “strange” looks as she walked by, a light blush appearing on the tops of her cheeks. She looked like a desperate weirdo…

After that incident, she began to panic. Alex was one to worry about things like this. “W-what if I never find where I’m supposed to register… will I have to wander these halls forever!? Will my ghost haunt this place, doomed to float around, all sad and lonely?!” Alex sucked in a sharp breath. She then stopped midstride, and let out a nervous laugh. “Dear God I need to calm down and just ask for directions…” As soon as Alex said this, all of the people around her seemed to grow suddenly, towering over her. Her own fright consumed her and she let out a small yelp and lowered her gaze as she tried to make her way past all of these people, and not make any eye contact.

With her gaze practically attached to the ground, she wasn’t really paying attention to where she was walking. Thinking she’d finally escaped all of those people, she then quickened her pace to a light jog. Suddenly, she connected with something firm, yet soft, and bounced off and stumbled back a few steps. She looked up and saw it was in fact a person, and a boy, and a cute boy at that. All of Alex’s embarrassment rose to her cheeks, and turned them to a bright red color.

“I-I’M SORRY!” Alex stammered, and slapped her hand over her mouth, realizing just a tad too late that her powers made it sound like she was screaming louder than at the top of her lungs. This made her blush even deeper and she glared down at the ground, still covering her mouth.

Jessie Liles.


As Jessie was walking, she was still searching for her room when she heard someone say, '' Have you seen Bobby?'' Jessie stopped walking and turned around. She looked up to see a girl around her age and height, with brown hair, and brown eyes. Jessie smiled and said, '' Yes, yes I have. I was just talking with him. He went back down stairs.'' Jessie stopped talking for a second and looked around, she looked back at the girl and said, '' He helped me get registered. I'm new here. My name is Jessie Liles and I'm looking for my room. I'm in room LB73. I'm rooming with a girl named Kitty Pryde, do you happen to know her?'' Jessie said as she slightly tilted her head to the side as she waited for an answer.


Bobby Drake

Bobby had gotten down the stairs, he saw tons of teens and younger kids beginning to pour into the lobby. He smiled and waved to them as they would pass by and look at him. He walked over to the registration room, he stopped when he saw what looked like a spike has pierced through one of the chairs. He walked up to the chair and grabbed hold of the spike, he let go and jumped away from it when he realized it was bone. He cleared his throat and grabbed it again and ripped it out of the leather chair. He sighed as he saw the hole that was left, he then began to study and look at the spike. He put it down on the table and walked away. After two minutes of walking He made it to the courtyard. He took a deep breath of fresh air and smiled. He looked at all the students and smiled, he stopped smiling when he saw a boy's shadow move on it's own. The kid freaked out and screamed, then after he screamed the shadow went back to normal, like nothing ever happened. He looked around and saw a new guy with his hand out stretched, he sighed and walked over to him. He stopped before he got close enough, Bobby saw a girl talking to him, so he decided to back off, and talk with him later. He then headed back to the main lobby.

James was relaxing in the sun just taking everything in, what his new life would be like, what would the academy be like and how he would get on at the high school he has to go too. Whilst he was doing this, he felt a thud against his back almost knocking him off the ledge he was sitting on. He managed to keep his balance "What the...!" and before he could finish his sentence a loud high pitched sound screeched out. James again just about kept himself on the ledge as he covered his ears. He didn't even look at the person who almost made him fall, he was about to lose his temper as he said "What do you think you're..." then he stopped himself. She was cute, James could never resist a good looking girl. "I umm... Im James. You've got a good set of lungs on you." All the anger just disappeared, girls had that sort of affect on James, he would just stop what he was doing and lose all concentration. He just kept thinking Just keep cool, just keep cool... So he thought back to how he used to act when he was back at high school, but now it was better, he could use his powers.

He put on a smile holding a hand out making her shadow and his own move, he made his own shadow hold out a rose to hers and making her shadow accept it. It was cheesy but cool because it meant he could show off his own powers. He then quickly stopped using his powers because he wouldn't have been able to control it for too long without him making himself look like an idiot. He still didn't have full control of his powers and using them for too long meant that he might accidentally make the shadow shoot out of the ground randomly. This girl really was pretty, what great luck he had, first day and he meets a good looking girl.

"What do you think you're..." Alex winced, bracing herself, ready to be yelled and screamed at for being a weirdo and being so clumsy.

"I umm... I’m James. You've got a good set of lungs on you." Alex raised her perplexed, embarrassed gaze from where it rested on the ground and looked upon the boy who had gone from angry to sweet in half a second. She then looked at his hand, which wasn’t exactly held out to give her a hand shake, but doing something else.

Alex caught sight of movement out of the corner of her eye. Her head turned to see her shadow accepting a rose from James’s shadow. This made her cheeks return to the color of an actual rose.

“That’s so cool…” She muttered, and turned back to him, still rather embarrassed. “My name is Alexandra. I’m very new and very far from home, so I’m very nervous… Sorry again…” She said, not realizing she said very three times. “Oh, and that sound wasn’t created by my lungs… if that makes sense. I can alter sound waves to make them VERY loud or just make them disappear completely… umm, watch.” Alex explained, and then turned to look for some people talking to each other to demonstrate her powers. She found a group of five girls who were gossiping in their annoyingly high pitched voices. Perfect…

Alex’s eyes narrowed as she concentrated on those girls. One girl was speaking to her friends, when her voice suddenly just shut off. Her mouth kept moving for a moment, not realizing that no sound was coming out. She stopped and made what would have sounded like a yelping sound, but nothing could be heard. Her friends were about to ask what was wrong, when they realized that they couldn’t talk either. A grin spread across Alex’s face as they all began to panic and ran off to seek help or something.

Alex stopped and their shrieking could now be heard. Alex started laughing, practically doubling over while holding her middle. She looked up at James. “That always makes me smile. It was kind of mean though…” She chuckled at the end, not really caring.

James watched her use her power with amazement "Well at least I know not too talk about you behind your back, you could hear anything". It was weird, they both seemed so comfortable using their powers openly. Maybe this place was good for him. He could interact freely without worrying about them knowing his powers. Those girls that Alexandra played a joke on were still quite freaked out, that was the sort of joke he liked, this girl seemed to have the same sense of humour as him. Then he heard her speak again, she had an accent. James thought, Jackpot. "So where actually are you from, Im from LA" he said to her.

As they were speaking he wondered if there was supposed to be somewhere they were meant to be. James had already seen his and he was rooming with the Bobby kid. Professor X had told him that he is able to control Ice, that could come in handy, and endless stream of ice cubes for drinks is always good, he joked in his own head. Maybe he should go see him. "Hey have you met anyone else yet? Apart from the professor and Storm I have met anyone, I was just told to come out here, maybe the professor has something planned for the new students."

"Well at least I know not to talk about you behind your back, you could hear anything.”

Alex smiled. “No that would not be a wise decision.” She chuckled.

"So where actually are you from, I’m from LA." James asked.

Alex’s smile faded, not happy she was reminded of home. “I come from Valencia, Spain. So, like I said, very very far away…” Alex sighed, staring at the ground as memories flooded her train of thoughts. “But that doesn’t really matter. I’m here now, and this will be my home for the next few months.” Alex’s friendly smile reappeared on her face, her mood perking right back up. Alex wasn’t one to be held down by things like this.

"Hey have you met anyone else yet? Apart from the professor and Storm I have met anyone, I was just told to come out here, maybe the professor has something planned for the new students."

Alex shook her head. “To be honest, I don’t think I’ve met anyone yet. Unless you’re secretly X-men.” Alex chuckled lightly at the thought, than realized it was kind of mean, and she blushed again, embarrassed. “I’m sorry, I hadn’t meant that to be rude.” he bowed her head apologetically. “I actually was looking for the place where you sign in or whatever when I bumped into you. Heh, literally.”

James laughed at Alex's comment, "Nah im no X-Man, I can barely keep my powers going for more than a few minutes." He felt kind of embarrassed at that fact, James didn't like not having control of his powers, especially since most of the people here were using them so easily. James was always trying to practice his powers but sometimes wished they would just disappear, life would be so much easier, just being normal. When he used his powers uncontrollably he felt like a monster, that would stop at nothing to do harm.

James looked at Alex, she seemed like she was easy to get on with, so James felt like he could trust her and anyway she was a mutant like him so why not. She seemed as lost as he was in this place, she mentioned about some place to get registered, James hadn't been registered in either, he took it that he was already, seeing as the professor brought him here himself. "I've got no idea where that is. Maybe if we went into the mansion we could ask someone. James hopped of the ledge and grabbed her wrist playfully, "Come on lets go." he said excitedly and jokingly pulled her along to the front door of the mansion.

"Nah im no X-Man, I can barely keep my powers going for more than a few minutes." James said with a light laugh.

"I've got no idea where that is. Maybe if we went into the mansion we could ask someone.” Alex shrugged.

“That is probably a good idea.” She chuckled, smiling, and kept rocking back and forth on her heels.

"Come on lets go." He said as he grabbed her wrist softly. Alex looked down at her wrist, and the tops of her cheeks turned a deep shade of red. She let out a little squeak as James began pulling her behind her as he ran to the entrance of the building. The redness in her face spread to consume the entirety of her cheeks.

“Discúlpeme!” Alex shouted instinctively as they shoved their way past people, her cheeks still a light shade of pink. She ran along with James, trying not the look too embarrassed.

Everything was fine for about two minutes of running. That was until Alex tripped over her untied shoelace. With a small yelp, Alex lurched forward, crashing into James’s back. Her arms wrapped around his shoulders. She was frozen in embarrassment, blushing deeply again.
