Superpower RP

Superpower RP

Superpower RP
The age of superheroes ended 20 years ago. Since that time, all new powers have been minimal, allowing the police to easily deal with villains even in the absence of heroes. But then, one day, 48 teenagers across the world receive a letter, which reads:
Greetings and Salutations!
My name is Daniel Storm. You may know me as CEO of Void Corp., the premier superpower research firm. If you didn’t know me, now you do! Introductions are not the reason for this letter, though. I am pleased to offer you a spot in my new private high school. Located in the eastern United State “dead zone” (an area not covered by any satellite), it boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including its own movie theater, water park, and other amenities in addition to top-notch dorms, meals, and classrooms. I don’t neglect the actual teaching, either. I have pulled some of the greatest teachers I could find to staff this high school. Now you may be thinking “so this sounds like a really good school, but I can’t afford anything like that.” Well, it may be expensive, but I’m paying. Yes, you read that right. Void Corp. will pay all expenses, including a private jet to the school, room and board, and meals. Now I bet you’re thinking “Wow! How do I join?” That’s simple. One week after receiving this letter, a Void Corp. private jet will land at the nearest airport to your home. To enroll, just get on that plane! No parents or siblings allowed, though (even I don’t have that much money). I hope to see you all there!

Daniel Storm
The people receiving this mysterious letter are from all backgrounds, nationalities, and ages. However, all of them have one thing in common: they all have superpowers, powers of a level not seen for 20 years. And their powers will be needed.
Hello! This is my first time creating an RP, so hopefully that introduction made sense. All our characters join Daniel’s school and learn about their powers in the process. Other than that, this can go in any direction. Again, I’m new at this, so please feel free to correct anything I mess up.
Character sheet:
Anything extra:
My character:
Name: Damion
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Appearance: Damion is about 6’ 1’’, with red eyes and short black hair. His skin is very pale, and glows slightly in the dark. He generally wears casual clothing, but often wears a black cloak to hide his unnatural skin. He also usually carries a small, hand-carved wooden flute with him.
Personality: Damion is a loner, preferring to be by himself. He is indifferent to many things, and tends to be curt and to the point when he does interact with people. However, he is always observing other people and the environment, and knows much more than he lets on. He loves to compose music and play it on his flute, but only does it in private.
Background: Damion does not remember his parents, except that he ran away from them some time ago and that he carved his flue with them. He has lived on his own, drifting across the country and taking odd-jobs for money. When Daniel’s letter (somehow) reached him, he joined the school more for the free dorm and meals provided than for the education. However, he also saw it as an opportunity to learn and increase his chances of finding stable work. He knows he has a superpower, but doesn’t know his true potential.
Power: Damion can control and create light. Basic uses of this power include making directed beams or flashes of light. However, Damion is also able to “harden” light he is in contact with (which he can turn back into normal light). Hardened light acts like a solid material, essentially allowing him to create things like walls and beams out of thin air. In addition, Damion can turn his own body and some other things  (such as clothing he’s wearing) into light. While transformed into light, Damion still retains complete control of his body and powers, allowing him to move extremely quickly. In case people think Damion is OP, his power has three main weaknesses: darkness limits the amount of light he can create, any light he creates or controls has to move in a straight line, and normal light must move at light-speed, while hardened light acts like a normal material (e.g. Damion can not create flashes of hardened light, he must continually move while turned into light).
Anything extra: N/A

Just so that this RP doesn't die waiting for people, like I have seen many times before, anyone can start once four people (other than me) have joined, even if I haven't been on in a while.

Name: Adira
Age: 15
Gender: Female
Appearance: Heterochromatically green eyes, lightly tanned skin, straight/wavy, medium length brown hair. Usually wears something casual, basically anything utilitarian.
Personality: Straightforward, tries to be friendly. Introverted, often misunderstood. Loyal, will stand up for what she believes in. Extremely brutally honest, not afraid to speak her mind. Her resting face looks angry, worried, sad, or any other negatively emotional option, but really she's just deep in thought and is enjoying herself. It's not uncommon for her to be asked 'Are you okay' when she spaces out. Which is one of the things she does fairly often.
Background: Orphaned at a local fire station, taken to an orphanage, but they treated her badly because of her powers and so she left. She's been on the run until now.
Power: She can control reality, but she's horrible at controlling it. When she's angery it's not uncommon for her to accidentally blow things up.
Anything extra: Open to shipping with a guy.

Hellooooooooo, my friendly earthling fellows. I haven't been on CB for a while, but I decided to pop in. This RP looks really cool! Not sure if I can do it yet, but top!

Oh boy oh boy I love superpowers!
Name: Paige Bonne

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Appearance: Tall, with a slim, trim, muscular appearance resulting from her daily ballet and gymnastics.  Paige is what would be referred to as "classically beautiful," with maybe just a dash of cuteness.  She dresses girly-modern, with high-wasted skater skirts, designer bags, stylish blouses, ripped jeans, small flowers in her hair, etc.  Her hair is long, auburn, and fluff.  Her eyes are gray-blue and her makeup is always immaculate.

Personality: Think Regina George form Mean Girls.  She might seem spunky and friendly at first, but it's all very calculated.  Paige has a knack for identifying people's insecurities, and calling them out in a joking way that sounds light to everyone else but the recipient (and then it cuts deep).  She is very secretly self-conscious about her own physical weakness, so she makes up for it by surrounding herself with close friends and playing the popularity game to boost her confidence.  She can be a jerk, but she does it with such a sincere smile people don't even realize it.

Background: She dislikes her family because, although they've always only wanted the best for her, she felt they were holding her back.  Paige sells her healing powers as a service, and has managed to acquire a small fortune.  She successfully filed for emancipation the day after her 16th birthday, and after the case was all settled she was living financially well on her own.

Power: Healing of virtually any illness and nay injury from broken bones to below in lieu of severity.

Anything extra: She relies heavily on her instant healing and agility, and is actually very weak. One well-placed blow will knock her out.

QUITE open to shipping with a guy :3

Once one more person adds their character, we can start. People can still join after we start, but I don't want this to die waiting for more people, and 4 is the minimum number for this to start.

I'm not sure how often I'll be able to post, but I haven't joined an RP in forever and superpowers are great :)

Name: Adrian Mark
Age: 16
Gender: Male 
Appearance: He has soft brown hair and sky blue eyes. He is a touch taller than average, and has a tall, graceful build. He usually dresses in soft oranges, yellows, or blues and goes barefoot most of the time.
Personality: He is very laid-back and coolheaded. He isn't always the most intellectually smart, but he surprises people by picking up on the deeper, messier truths. He truly wants the best for everyone, but he also wants to be liked and held in good respect. Sort of like Clay from Wings of Fire. He's a generally friendly and smooth person he'll get awkward around someone he doesn't like. He has kind of a weak personality and can come across as boring, but he's very caring and kindhearted and can't stand to see anyone's feelings hurt. I guess he's also a bit like Jorge from the Awkward, Brave, and Crush series.
Background: Adrian's respected in his home school, but he always felt a little isolated because of his power. He sees this new school as an opportunity, but he's a bit nervous. He's lived a fairly normal life up until this point, aside from a few mishaps and misunderstandings from his power. He's been in many socially charged situations himself.
Power: Flight. No wings or anything. He can just fly. He can get very fast and very high up, and if he needs a bigger power, he can also control the winds, which would pick up if he got angry.
Anything extra: Open to shipping to anyone (I forsee a wonderfully romantic scene of him taking someone in his arms to go flying by the moonlight)

Here ya go!

Name: Connor

Age: 15

Gender: Male

Appearance: short brown hair, one blue eye and one black eye that wont reflect any light which he keeps behind his bangs, wears sweatpants and athletic shirts, black tennis shoes, twinkling smile, light skin, and sometimes wears a hoodie of sorts

Personality: actually quiet, insecure, strong, athletic, shy, tries to disappear, (see background)

Background: His parents are kind of obsessed with popularity so they kind of shove him out there and expect him to win. HE doesn't like his powers but his parents want him to show them off to the world. this caused him to run away and avoid them as much as possible. He wishes he was normal. He pretends that he doesn't have powers but his parents are going to make him go the the new high school to boast about it to the neighbohood. They are going to try and go too. He gets into fights alot and hates fighting.

Power: he can control fire . He can make it apear and shape it. He has resistance to fire. he can blast it at a target, make a sheild, a protective dome, make fireballs that he can hold and throw, and can put it out. When he puts it out or summons it it may take control of him a bit and might make him destroy things. It takes concentration to make it disapear.  

Anything extra: Open to shipping with a girl

This facility is huge. Dazzled by the buildling that is somehow unnoticed by satilites, I make my way to the Control Room. Once there, a woman hands me the keys to my dorm.

"Sorry, sweetie. You were assigned the room at the edge of the split between the boys and the girls." She eyes me, smiling. "But, you're pretty, so you'll be able to make the best of it." With a shrug, I nod her a 'Thank you' and find my dorm. Dorm 11.

@RW Thanks for reminding me that I said anyone could start!

Just so everyone knows, people can still join even though we'rve started.


I walked out of the plane, my cloak wrapped tightly around me. As the stewardess (how much money does this guy have, anyway?) tried to find my non-existent luggage, I looked around at my new school. Those are pretty large buildings, I thought. From the look of the roof, that one's probably the gymnasium. There's the dorms over there, on the other side of that park. Cafeteria's there, classrooms, administration building ... and ringed by forest all around. This place is built more like a private college than a high school. "Um, sir?" I turned towards the stewardess. "Where's your luggage?" "I don't have any." "You don't have any? Then where is all your ..." "Mr. Storm. When can I meet him?" Surprised at my question, the stewardess stammered "I-I really don't know. Mr. Storm is very ... eccentric. He could come at any time." "Is there a map of the grounds?" "Yes, I have one here." "Then that's all I need." Snatching the map, I walked briskly away. So the school's creator isn't even here. I thought this place sounded off from the moment I got that letter. Of course, its a great opportunity, one I wasn't going to refuse, but still, why me, of all people? And why the location in the dead zone? And, most importantly of all, why spend all this money on a few kids? Oh well, I won't get any answers until he gets here. In the meantime ... (I opened the map and studied it for a bit) I was right, the dorms are there. May as well see what Mr. Storm included in "room and board." Then I'll head to the cafeteria. From the looks of this place, the food there will be expensive as well, at least compared to what I've had the past few days. Putting the map into one of my pockets, I walked towards the dorms.

Okay, I'll join! This sounds really cool. Perhaps Mr. Storm secretly has bad intentions and wants to harness these kids to destroy the world...

Name: Alex Carson
Age: 14
Gender: Genderfluid; uses they/them pronouns
Appearance: They have short hair, died pink, helping their androgynous look. Their skin is just dark enough to read as not white but still relatively light. They have large brown eyes and a small smile. They are of average height and weight. They usually wear plain, colored tops and yoga pants.
Personality: They genuinely like getting to know people, but they can be very socially awkward. They're never quite sure what to say when they get asked their gender, and in the surface they are very uncomfortable in social interactions. If you get to know them, however, they're really nice, loyal, and a great friend.
Background: They had a really normal life growing up.
Power: They have the ability to draw items and make them come to life, like Sketch in Renegades. However, they can only do this for small items (small enough to hold), and they must be uncomplicated. Unlike Sketch from Renegades, they cannot tattoo themself to gain powers.
Anything extra: They'll be put in the girl's dormitory. They're open to shipping with anyone.
