    Default Metropolis Character Registry Thread

    This thread ought to function as a registry for all characters who are regularly played in the Metropolis FFRP setting.

    The registry takes the form of an ID card, which all Metropolis residents will likely have. A sample ID would look like this, bolded categories the typical things your character would have on his/her ID card:
    Full Name: Normal Bland McAverage
    Age: Whatever's an average age in Metropolis
    Photo: N/A (Use an avatar, perhaps?)
    Powers: Nothing out of the ordinary
    Reason in City: Acting average professionally.
    Announced Items: The average kind of thing!
    Self Description and other Data: In case that a photo cannot be procured, and in case of shapeshifters, please fill in other personal data here for security reasons. I'm pretty average.
    Address #: Oh, that average place.

    This thread will function as a registry, and as a place for one to look up powers that have already been "taken" (by Metropolis guidelines, it is preferred that you do not give your character a power another player's character is already using, unless it's suitably different).
    Character Registry:







    Power Registry:
    Shapeshifting (into a dog)
    Minor Emotional Suggestion (via touch)
    Limited Camouflaging
    (Possibly) Enhanced intelligence
    Limited and Brief Speed, "flitting"
    Blunt Force Projection
    Dirt Control
    Limited Teleportation
    Chain Control
    Limited Pyrokinesis
    Winged Flight, with minor flame-based assocation
    Power Amplification (technology based?)
    Sonic Scream ("roar")
    Matter Creation

    If you're going to edit in new characters, edit them out, or delete posts, please do tell me via PM, so the registry doesn't get ruined. Thanks.

    Fred's Metro characters #1 and #2 reporting for duty.

    Full Name: Daniel Chestnut
    Age: 18
    Appearance: About 5ft 2ins, average build, short blonde hair. Emerald eyes. Often wears a pair of incredibly durable glasses.
    Powers: Daniel can shoot blasts of force from his hands and eyes at will. However, the eye-force is incredibly hard for him to control and without his glasses, he can barely restrain it.
    Reason in City: Prisoner (for having powers)
    Announced Items: Wallet containing money, a pen-knife (1 inch blade) and a packet of tissues.
    Self Description and other Data: Well you should know, you guys brought me here, not very gently I might add. Jeez, could you turn down the lights? Okay, here's my story. About a month or two ago, I was sent to go live with my Grandma, unfortunately, she gave me the wrong address. Happy now?
    Address #: 12 Highburn Street, apartment 175

    Name: Hannah Chestnut
    Age: 16

    Full Name: Alex Timothy White

    Age: 17

    Photo: n/a

    Appearance: Alex is a tall Caucasian male with dark skin with short cropped brown hair and brown eyes. Heís very weak, so weak that heís confined to a wheelchair. Heís thin, almost unhealthily so. He is of average strength and weight. He usually wears casual clothes, like jeans and a white T-shirt.

    Amplification: Alexís own energy is transferred into another person while maintaining physical contact. This amplifies any powers that person may have have as well as making that person slightly stronger, faster, and more energized while contact is maintained. As a downside, Alex grows weaker as he amplifies others, and he can only do it for so long until he needs to rest. If he maintains contact for too long, he could potentially die. None. However, reports have come in that he has some weird technology with him that can amplify other people's powers and that may have other unknown functions.

    Reason in city: Prisoner. It would be safer for me and for everyone else if I was locked up. Unknown, subject is not a super, but he gave no other reason for being here.

    Announced items: Nothing noteworthy.

    Self Description and other Data: Iíve done terrible things. People have died because of me. I didnít want to do it, and I- I donít want to hurt people anymore.

    Adress #: # 12 Highburn Street, apartment 217

    Reason in City: Visitor Prisoner
    Announced Items: purse containing chapstick, a notebook and pen, and a handkerchief
    Self Description and other Data: "Fine, I come from a long line of useless alcoholics, got caught up in the cycle, moved in with this guy who was a real jerk. I dumped him, and now I'm here trying to start over." Subject was reported as a super - confirmed.
