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

This is getting really popular!

Damion ~

I spent my whole lunch lost in thought, bearly paying attention to anything around me. At one point, I heard someone talking to me, and I mumbled something vauge in response. Other than that, I didn't notice anything as I finished my lunch and walked out of the cafeteria. I headed back to my dorm, but stopped when I saw the door open. Since they were locked with key cards, like most else in this place, there had to be someone in there, either my roomate or a janitor. I didn't want to deal with either of them, so I left the dorm building and walked over to the park, still disturbed about what happened earlier. Once I reached the park, I quickly climbed up one of the trees, and drew my flute from within my cloak. What I had done was clogging up my mind; I needed to relax. So I began to play. The melody I played was sorrowful, but hinted at hope. Quiet, it seemed to ring throughout the park. I had known it as long as I could remember. Some of the notes and rhythms had changed over the years, but the theme stayed the same. Playing it took my mind off my power (which I began to suspect the incident was) and brought me back to my beginning, to the parents and home I could not remember. Absorbed in the music, I continued to play, sitting in the park tree with my cloak billowing in the wind. I didn't even notice that my skin was visible.

@Darkking, want to ship Jacob and Alex?

-- Alex --

It appears everyone is congregating in Alex and Adira's room. Alex is slightly uncomfortable with this, but at least it gives them more chances to make new friends! As they continue chatting with Adira and Damion, they see another person walk down the hallway. Excusing themself from the current discussion, they head out to see who it is.

"Hi, I'm Alex," they say to this new person.

"Oh, hey! I'm Jacob. Are you my roommate?"

"No, I'm down there in Dorm 11. Just wanted to see who you were."

"Oh, okay. Yeah, I'm Jacob, and I have electricity powers, not that that's what you were asking, probably." 

He smiles a wide, beaming smile that catches Alex unaware and makes them want to smile too.

"Um, cool. I can draw things and make them come to life. Er, small things. Not, like, anything I wanted. Um, yeah. And down there in the other room are Damion and Adira - Damion has light and Adira has reality powers. Not sure what either of them are actually like as people, but Adira seems kinda like you wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of her. Uh, I'm blabbing, aren't I? Sorry about that. I'll just, uh, go."

My hoodie flaps in the wind as i step off the plane, ready for swarm of girls to swamp me, and I prepare a flirty comment... "Aw, come on." It looks weirdly like a college campus. I sigh, and the stewardess hands me key, telling me i'll be rooming with a guy named Jacob in room 16. I walk there -gosh, this place is huge- and peer in. Seated on one of the beds is a guy about two years older than me, short, with poofy bown hair

Just a short post to get the story moving.

Damion ~

I played my song for what seemed like forever. Finally, I noticed that it was getting dark, and decided to head back to the dorms. Checking my mailbox on the way in, I saw an official-looking letter. I opened it and read:

Hope you all are finding everything to your liking! Classes will start Monday (three days from now), so be sure to be familiar with the grounds by then. Just a couple rules:

1) No leaving the grounds under any circumstances. There are a lot of private homes around here, and I don't want to deal with a lawsuit. Just stay within the tree perimeter and you'll be fine.

2) On a related note, flights back home will be allowed over Christmas and summer break, but at no other time.

3) Don't try to connect to the internet. The "dead zone" also has no internet or cellular connection. If you need one of those things, talk to the tech desk in the Adminisration building to get connected to a private intranet.

I will be speaking on the grounds tomorrow at noon. Teacher introductions and other stuff will be then.

Daniel Storm

"So, he will be here," I said to myself, walking back to my dorm. Once in my room, I noticed that my roommate was out. I guess I'll wait for him, then, I thought, sitting on the bed after hanging my cloak up. I'm going to be living with him for at least a year, might as well try and be friends.

-- Alex --

Clutching the letter in their hand, Alex returned to their room and plopped on their bed. Looking over, they saw that Adira had a similar letter.

"Hey, uh, does yours say the same thing as mine? I mean, like, no leaving the grounds and we'll get to meet whats-his-name tomorrow?"

"Yes," she said shortly.

"Um, that's kinda weird, isn't it?" 


She turned away and opened a book. Alex sighed, gathering the unmistakable signs that she didn't really want to discuss this. What a shame.

Something is wrong here. We haven't even had a training session yet. I can see the training grounds from the far window of the apartment. My fists clench.

"I'm going out," I announce to Alex. They perk up.

"Could I come??" They bounce. I guess they like rule breaking, too. We aren't supposed to be out of our rooms until we're called to meetings. I keep my eyes trained on the outside world, memorizing the path to the training grounds.

"If you must." Then, I swoop to grab my keys, stuff them in my pocket, and open the door. "Let's go."


Nihil says kind. Twenty-eighth word.

My roommate is a tall guy with black hair and dark eyes. I stand up and hold out my hand to him, saying "I'm Jacob, I guess you must be my roommate."

He grins and moves to take my hand before pulling away as static shocks his hand. "I'm Jax, nice to meet y-AH" he jumps away as I cackle with glee.

"That's the first time I've gotten anyone to fall for that in a while," I say. chuckling as I shake his hand for real this time. Then I move to go check our mail, as I was informed that we had a letter. While I do that Jax inspects the room, his eyes falling on the pile of metal in the corner.


Math just ended so RiGhT oN tImE!!!

After a short wait, my roommate walked into my dorm. He looks alright, I thought. Probably an athlete, with those clothes. "Hey." I say finally, after waiting for him to notice me. "Gah! How long have you been sitting there?" My roommate replies, startled. "About a minute. My name is Damion." "Oh, you're my roommate, then. I thought you were some sort of stalker." "Lots of people think that. They're usually wrong." "Usually? Oh, right. I'm Connor. I guess we're living together?" "Seems like it," I said, walking over and taking his outstretched hand. "Although I don't really like being with people more than I have too." "Same here." "Really? Then we should get along just fine." Connor's actually not that bad, I thought as we talked about how we would divide our dorm space. He hasn't said anything about my skin, or my habits. We might actually get along. "Do you know those two?" Connor suddenly asked. Looking in the direction he pointed, I saw Alex and a girl I didn't know outside. They appeared to be trying to sneak around, but they were terrible at it."I know one of them," I said. "I should probably go and tell them they look like idiots out there." Grabbing my cloak, I left Connor and headed out onto the school grounds. Why were they sneaking around like that anyway? It's not like there's a cerfew or anything. And they were headed to the gymnasium, at this time of night? Wrapping my cloak tighter so my glowing skin didn't give me away, I followed them across the grounds, wondering what was going on.


Sorry if I controlled your charrie too much. Just tell me if there's anything you want me to change.
