    Default Nucleus: The Origin OOC

    Spoiler: Characters
    Show


    The Other
    A voice in Sebastian's head that seems to know more than he is letting on. He's been a part of Sebastian's life for almost four years.

    The Blue Girl
    A mysterious individual who seemed to be reaching out to Sebastian at Times Square. Her powers seem to be based around the white crystalline structures growing on her skin and what she used to fly.

    Magpie/Windstorm/The Raven
    A super-heroine that has appeared in New York City and has been active for four months. Her powers seem based in the black wings on her back and the ability to generate and control the wind.

    Comet
    The first hero to emerge on the scene, Comet has taken a fairly stereotypical stance on costumed crime-fighting, trying to mold his image as a paragon who helps the innocent. Using a specialized suit developed with the antigravity technology, Comet is able to absorb energy and repurpose it to his needs. The suit grants him flight, super strength, and the ability to project energy blasts from his palm emitters.

    Fabian Firemark
    Originally from the American southwest, Fabian Firemark is a flamboyant and eccentric inventor who grew up in relative poverty. His humble origins propelled him to use his genius to help people, and he used his inventions to change the world. It is Firemark Industries that powers NYC with advanced nuclear plants further up the Hudson River and provides most of its technology with goods and services developed in his factories outside of the city and in other areas of the country. He also has Fireworks Securities, a paramilitary force tasked with protecting his holdings. He is a key member of the Interstellar Initiative and developed many of the vehicles and prefabricated structures that would be used in the voyage.

    He also developed the Firemark Institute for Gifted Youngsters to find other inventors and thinkers like himself to help make the world a better place.

    Azura Patel
    Sebastian's classmate and work partner at the Institute. Azura is the son of Pakistani immigrants who has a knack for electrical engineering. He can be easily plied with Hershey Chocolate bars.

    Linda Torrence
    Sebastian's little sister. Although they tend to tease and argue with each other on occasion like any pair of siblings, Sebastian genuinely cares for his sister and will go his way to help her in more or less any situation, as well as attempting to keep her out of trouble. His relationship to her tends to be that of exasperated big brother, although they can be quite effective sibling team when trying to think up solution to a problem.

    Michael Torrence
    Sebastian's father, and the family member with whom he is most at odds with. Chief Analytics Officer (CAO) of the successful biomedical company, the Alto Corporation , he generally lives and breathes his work, thus setting his family on the second place and hardly ever being available for his children to actually bond with. Sebastian is angry for his father for being work-obsessed and generally growing more and more distant from the rest of the family, and his father in turn is less than impressed by him remaining in public school and wasting his time in internet instead of doing something more productive with his life (even if he is still young). Sebastian also wonders what his father thinks of his mental condition, and at times attempts to come up with plans to win his approval even if he is rather bitter towards the man.


    Christine Torrence
    Sebastian's mother is the stabilizing influence in his life, a good parent if there ever has been any. She is the one he and his sister see most around the house, a kind and understanding parent who is not one to berate her children for potential hijinks. Although she does not generally have a chance to keep an eye on his comings and goings that much, Sebastian tries to keep out of overt trouble for the sake of sparing her nerves.

    Raiko Munakata
    Inventor of Cosmos, the all-encompassing social media virtual world that has become a supplement to daily living. His company also helped make the Interstellar Initiative possible.

    Theodore Alto
    Owner of the Alto Corporation, one of the members of the Interstellar Initiative.

    Cosmos
    Cosmos is a virtual reality and social media provider where people have avatars to work, communicate, play games, and other activities. A large percentage of world trade and business is also performed through the extensive virtual world, and many governments have representative services within Cosmos. It also has entertainment beyond games, such as watching TV shows or movies or reading books. On top of that, shopping is a major business through Cosmos, where customers can go to the virtual stores of both major brand names and smaller designers.

    Super-Heroes
    New York City has been experiencing it's first taste of costumed super-heroics over the last six months, with the introduction of Comet, Magpie, and a handful of others. They stay predominantly out of the limelight and seem very secretive.

    The Interstellar Initiative
    A privatized attempt at colonizing the Solar System, beginning with Mars. Spearheaded by Fabian Firemark and supported by a consortium of businesses, the Initiative was launched roughly 16 years ago, and has been in successful operation for the past eight years. The first return voyage occurred four years prior.

    Backround:
    Spoiler
    Show
    A teen genius born out of marriage growing more streched by the month, Sebastian Torrence is juvenile delinquent in looks, crazy by reputation and exordinary at cruising through the public school without apparently any challenge - in fact, some call him a cheater, pointing out that the kind of grades he gets and lack of effort invested in them has to mean he is not playing by the rules. A straight A student all the way through, he does not even bother to offer much in way of explanation to baffled teachers, doing what he is asked so nobody can be on his case for missing his education.

    The abysmal ease via which he deals in schoolwork leaves Sebastian much time for extracurricular activities, most obvious of which is everything internet-related. An avid web-surfer and hacker, he tends to enjoy his jaunts into the virtual reality more than he enjoys conversation with actual people, and tends to practice his skills by hacking sites even up to official ones just in the name of his own amusement (and at times recognition of his peers). His other hobbies include multible courses of different martial arts and, fittingly enough, chess.

    Early in his childhood, Sebastian became aware of the voice inside his head that was not his own. Being still naive, he told of the matter to his parents, who unsurprisingly pushed him to meeting a doctor. Being declared off in the head did not expecially help Sebastian's life, leading to him growing up separate from most social circles and lacking any real social network of his own, save for few friends and of course the internet.


    Description:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Quite tall for 15-year old, Sebastian keeps his hair in short tail and hides his amber eyes behind pair of gold-tinted shades. His build leans on "fragile but agile" side, and although he is not quite as good in acrobatic maneuvers as his sister, he can still pull off some gymnastics. He tends to wear his black longcoat most of the time (even in hot summer days), and the rest of his clothing is also on darker side of the spectrum, but still relatively casual. His general outlook makes him look like quite the teen deviant.


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Calm and dry of wit, Sebastian uses a hard exterior to conceal his uncertainty and need to belong from others, generally preferring to keep people at arm's lenght (methaphorically and physically) unless they are family or very close friends. Shunned by many of his peers, he tends to give as good as he gets, and can be downright vicious in exacting revenge on those that he feels have slighted him. Still, to his friends he is merely the somewhat reclusive computer whiz with the outlook of juvenile delinquent.

    Although he can be at times unattentive to things happening around himself, Sebastian is likely one of most intelligent people in United States. Quite the teen genius to say the very least, he uses his gifts mostly in effort to gain some recognition from his peers and helping his friends. Capable of making mockery of every firewall and anti-intrusion measure up to Federal level (and leaving those alone by choice), he is widely acknowledged as incredible hacker in internet circles, and tends to be very at ease in the virtual realm in general.

    Sebastian's Schizophrenia manifests itself as a voice in his head that he has taken to calling "The Other". The Other generally only makes observations rather than demands, although some of it's commentary can be somewhat confusing for Sebastian and the two tend to get into argument from time to time. He does not generally speak to The Other aloud, but he can slip on occassion, generally earning odd looks.


    Family:

    Linda Torrence: Sebastian's little sister. Although they tend to tease and argue with each other on occassion like any pair of siblings, Sebastian genuinely cares for his sister and will go his way to help her in more or less any situation, as well as attempting to keep her out of trouble. His relationship to her tends to be that of experated big brother, although they can be quite effective sibling team when trying to think up solution to a problem.

    Michael Torrence: Sebastian's father, and the family member with whom he is most at odds with.
