Jean E Grey

06/15/2011 06: PM 

my old starters

the day was passing and drawing to early evening and jean grey was shopping in town fo rthe last of her xmas shopping. as she roamed around the mall complex she could not only hear the thoughts of the populace as they passed by her on their merry way but she could sense their emotions as well. Jean frowned and  rubbed the side of her head. *man how i hate to be out & this close to people.* She thought to herself as she continued on her way. Being out and this close among so many people made things very hard & difficult for jean to shut out the strong ramdom thoughts & feelings that intruded apon her psyche  and left her feeling tired and in pain at the constant consentration that she had to do just to block them all out of her head. after buying the last of & collecting the rest of her gifts jean headed for the car parkk to unload them into the back of her car. This done and tired as she was jean went into the nearest cafe not too far from where she was parked & ordered herself some coffee and sandwiches and hoped that just this once there wouldnt be any trouble with either the human population or the mutant population that would cause her to get involved. Cause in her present comdition with the painful headache she had she felt that she just might lose control of her temper and her powers and jean knew that that would be a very bad thing to happen.2st premade starter 'Scott was so happy when they found me......Who am i well  my name i Jean Elizabeth Grey... I am the real Jean, the one the Phoenix left beneath the still waters of alkali lake. After all that had hapened  with the phoenix during its time here in the world and all that followed the friends and family that are lost to us all......I looked over at Scott's sleeping form lying there next to me and couldn't believe it. In just a few weeks i would be marrying the man i've loved since the day i first met him here at Xavier's School for the gifted......  It seemed like yesterday when all of us who lived here within the walls of  the mansion dreamed about their future, and how it would be. Of course no one thought that i would die, come back as the Phoenix, and die again, only to return to once more.'...... I sighed as i read through what i'd just finished writing here in my diary and as the unshed tears filled my eyes i put my diary back into the drawer and got out of bed.Walking into the bathroom i turned on the shower and stepped into it only then allowing my painfilled tears fall silently.Tilting my head to the i knew the instant that everyone throughout the school was waking up and getting ready for the day to begin. Leaving the bathroom i dressed and put on a brave face for all to see as the new day began.  starter 3Jean was an attractive woman, the kind that could stop a man in the street just to watch her walk by. But if anyone saw her today they would most likely avoid her at all costs. Being a natural redhead she had a temper to match one that usually simmered just below the surface unfortunately for everyone today that temper had shown itself. Not one thing had gone right that morning vital paperwork had gone missing and vital information though backed up onto disk for safe keeping had been lost when the medlab computer had crashed. slamming the door from her office in a temper she went to teach her shceduled class only to find in house argueing and fighting among the students. ENOUGH!  was enough when she saw the mess of the classroom and the fighting going on and it made her temper snap. Gone was the easy going tutor that everyone liked and in her place was the phoenix. Though the bird effect didnt show the power rolling throughout the room and the firey glowing of her body hair and eyes sent the studants into a fearful panic and had them backed against the classroom wall. Using her powers she opened the door.'GET OUT!' she said to the children so they wouldnt get hurt as she fought for control. The children ran and jean herself left the building  before she lost it completely. The flames around her vanished but her eyes remained a firey gold which she hid behind dark glasses and headed for town and god help anyone follish enough to cross her that day. She feared what she would do as she tried to reign in her temper. The professor was in washington and scott and some of the team were on a mission, so that left jean alone to wander through the city.starter4Somewhere unknown, a young readhaired woman with golden sun taned skin sat on the floor in the meditating position with her eyes closed, surrounded by silence of the room that she resided in. She gasped as her eyes popped open revealing green eyes that were filled with annoyance. jean lost the consentration that she had had going to the sound of the students of the xavier institue running up and down the hallways of the mansion going to and fro to their next classes.Giving up meditating here within the house jean got to her feet and went outside into the garden and headed for her favourite spot away from everyone. It was mid afternoon and the day was warm as she returned to her meditation.soon random thoughts and feelings begun to intrude upon jeans mind and though they were a great distance away from her current location they were loud and persistant.jean narrowed her eyes in anger the one emotion that she really wanted to control least the dark phoenix side of her personality return to the fore.starter 5Jean awoke early, it was just before dawn that morning. Sighing she got up and went to the dresser and picked out the clothes she wanted to wear that day before heading to the shower. For the past week and a half she'd woken this early for no other reason than that she could'nt sleep which was unusual for her because she was so used to have a full night's rest. After showering she got dressed and made her way downstairs to the kitchen to begin making  coffee. Switching on the percolator Jean sat down at the kitchen table to wait. When the coffee was ready jean picked up her cup and poured herself one and then returned the pot back to the cradle and turned back towards the table and saw professor x coming through the door.'Good morning professor, coffee's just made can i get you one?' She enquired as she placed her cup on the table and made to retrieve another.starter 6 Jean woke in the darkness to a hunger, one that she'd only felt once before. She turned and put on the  bedside lamp and wondered what the hell she should do. The phoenix insistant voice was wringing in her ears and she tried her damnedest not to listen tot he voice within. Getting quietly up from the bed she made her way towards the kitchen as she fought to keep her other side at bay and by the time she reached the kitchen she had a struggle on her hands and one she knew she's failed miserably THE DARK PHOENIX side of her personallity was loose. IT HUNGERED and wanted sustenance and it didnt care where it got it from as long as it did. The firebird rose fast above the earth's surface and scanned throughout the universe for what she needed, finding 3 dying stars she entered the solar systems and ate each sun before returning to earth and her room. The hunger was contained for now but Jean knew it wouldn't last for long. starter 7This silence of the night was astounding, you could hear for miles around if you were a mutant and a telepath like like myself. The evening brought to my mind the sound's  and thought's of the local population that were going about their early evening business to the sound's of the clubber's moving around the streets. Who am I? My name is Jean Grey and  right now i sit here quietly upon the wall of the mansion that is my home. To most people that know me i am known as PHOENIX but i am a dr of medicine, science and genetics and like the professor i am world reknown for my knowlege pretaining to the mutant population of the world. Smiling silently to herself Jean  moved from the wall and hovered in midair using her telekinetic abilities rather than that of the firebird inside of her body as she felt that that woud just be showing off and that is something that she  would never do just for fun unlike some of her other friend's that she had who likes to use the natural gifts for just that purpose or for the hurting of other's.  Though she had total control of all of her powers Jean felt that she still had a lot of work and a long way to go before she felt that she had thats same control over the phoenix inside as she had with her other powers. So landing she walked intot he mansion and went into the dangerroom releasing all safeguard protocalls and set to work of training herself to do just that. Within the room the firebird that represented the force shone evervesent and brightly as she hovered their silently within its confines. *Why me she thought to herself, why did she answer me on that fateful day?* These were just some of the question's that circled the  walls of Jean's mind, question's that she Jean knew would never be answered. As she pondered this she suddenly became aware that she was no longer alone within the dangerroom someone was in the controlroom watching her. Raising her head she turned golden firey eyes in that direction. starter 8Jean was tired, the hours she'd spent within the dangerroom had left her ehausted. Upon exiting the room she headed for the lockerroom and hit the showers to work out the kinks with the heat from the water. As she stood beneath the torrents of water Jean could sense  the strong emotions from everyone  within the building. Sighing she switched off the water and exited the showerroom and entered the locker room to get dressed. she walked slowly through the hallways of the mansion rubbing her head at the beginings of a headache caused by the barrage of emotions she was trying her hardest to keep locked out of  her head. Reaching the bottom of the stairwell Jean couldnt stand it anymore, so sitting down on the stairs she put her head in her hands as she tried to keep control but things around her begun to shake and hover in the air around her. starter9 Her emerald green eyes opened in the hour just before the dawn when the sun was just comming up over the horizon. Unable to sleeep any longer she rose silently from her bed and went into the bathroom to shower and dress  for the comming day ahead. Using her gift she turned on the shower while looking through her closet and chest of drawers for the clothes she wanted to wear that morning. Underware, white shirt and black slacks with her flat pump shoes, this done she placed them apon her bed and entered the bathroom. Jean smiled to herself as she knew she was the only person within the school that was awake as of yet and for once she had some semblence of silence within her head, but knew it wouldn't be long before she would feel the others wake. Shower  done she quickly dried herself and returned to her room and dressed in the clothes she'd left apon the bed just as the first rays of the morning sun came through her bedromm window and lit up the room. Stepping from her room she walked down the stairs to the main floor and headed for the kitchen. As she filled and switched on the kettle she felt the first stirring of life as people begun to wake. sighing softly she closed her eyes for a few seconds then gave herself a mental shake. Just then the kettle clicked off telling her it was ready for use as the sounds of foot falls could be heard comming down the stairs to the main section of the mansion..

Guidelines.

Really, there are three basic things to keep in mind: 1. Don't steal anything from me. This includes storylines, character information, edits, layouts, whatever. 2. Be literate. 3. Don't nag me for replies. Now for the specifics. Castiel is not my creation and I do not claim him to be. That doesn't mean that my edits, posts, layouts, pictures, and what have you are up for the taking. I write everything on this blog (apart from the lyrics; those belong to the respective artists), so do NOT take anything from my profile. I may edit for you, but that's only if you ask really nicely and I like you to begin with. I cannot stress literacy enough. It's fine when we're talking out of character. You can type however you'd like when we're just goofing off. I know I tend to talk rather stupidly out of character (blame tumblr; I used to speak properly all the time), but in character, I won't accept that. We're all adults here, right? We can handle writing a few paragraphs utilizing proper grammar and nice imagery. You nag me, I take longer on your reply, plain and simple. I'm sorry that you feel a sense of entitlement, but my attention is split between roleplay, video games, socializing, drinking, and responsibilities. I also have a medical issue at the moment that keeps me from being on and completing things as much as I'd like. You are not my greatest priority, and if you find you cannot wait for a quality reply, you can just delete me outright. The following are more guidelines than anything else, and are not enforced as strictly as the above. Crossovers are fine. I'd be happy to make Castiel a naive human for our roleplay if that works better for you, or you can insert your character into the Supernatural verse. I'm flexible. I tend towards being a novella roleplayer, but I can go down to multi-para or up to mega novella if need be. I'd ask that you not attempt to one-line with me, nor do I really want anything under two paragraphs. I'd prefer around four paragraphs per response, but I do understand that not everyone can manage that every time. As long as you give me at least two paragraphs, I won't complain. You can bunny Castiel, but you may not godmod him. This means that you cannot write his actions or dialogue, nor can you assume he'd behave in a certain way, no matter how much of an expert you feel you are on Supernatural. However, if they've made arrangements to go somewhere, feel free to set off with Cas in tow. When in doubt, ask me. I prefer talking to my fellow roleplayers out of character. I suppose it's not that big an issue, but it's considerably more awkward for me to have Cas interacting with your character when I don't even know your name. Again, I understand the need for privacy, so I'm lax when it comes to this. I like being chummy with my connections, though. I mean, you guys are my mains, right? May as well have some conversation. I'm female in real life. If you've got a problem with girls playing guys, then I guess we won't be roleplaying. In character drama is a must. I'm not going to roleplay with you if our characters are just going to skip off into the sunset and frequent bars and LOL MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE LOCALS. If you want honey and sugar, look elsewhere. Out of character drama is a no-no. Once we become friends, I don't mind being your sounding board. Go ahead and tell me when you're upset and need to talk about something that happened in real. That's what friends are for, and I value online friendships just as much as ones I've developed in real life. However, if you're going to criticize any of my life choices, show yourself out. I've had problems in the past with former friends judging me for the things I do in my personal life, so here's a fair warning: In real life, I drink. I smoke. I swear. Do not expect me to be some naive teenager that disapproves of sex before marriage and underage drinking, because I'm warning you right now, I will not tolerate judgment. I'm twenty years old, and I'm fully capable of making my own decisions. I don't judge anyone, so kindly extend the same tolerance to me.In my headcanon, Cas is Demisexual. In layman's terms, this means he will be asexual until he develops a love for someone. Doesn't that make more sense than him having a definitive orientation? ;} I SHIP DESTIEL. Kindly refrain from adding me just to get all up on Cas' dick because you think he's irresistible or you like Misha Collins or something. Hah, no. I'm actually extremely nice out of character. SO, UM, LET'S TALK. :}

Character History (Volume Five: Redemption)

2009-2010 Post Season 3/Pre-Season 4: With everything over with, Chris goes to take care of another problem, Arthur Petrelli. Chris arrives at Pinehearst and faces off against Arthur. Arthur quickly steals all of Chris' powers, again. Using a gun he brought with him, Chris quickly takes out his uncle before Arthur can do anything to stop him. Going back to New York, and trying to live a normal life, Chris is approached by Major General Jack O'Neill. Jack, who has been following on what's been going on, invites Chris to join a special program. After giving it some thought, Chris leaves, not saying where he has gone. Chris joins a top secret program, known as Stargate Command. While he's with Stargate Command, Chris comes across a watch that attaches itself upon his wrist. Unable to get the watch off his wrist, he soon learns that the watch contains various abilities, like flight, super speed, and sound manipulation. Because of this, Chris is soon ordered by Jack O'Neill, who unbeknownst to Chris, is working along side the new, government funded Company, to investigate and come into contact with evolved humans. Approximately five weeks later, Chris is back at Stargate Command where he runs into Mohinder, who has been working for the program. Mohinder explains that they've come up with a new formula, based off of Kathryn's DNA. Getting injected with the new formula, Chris regains his ability and absorbs Mohinder's enhanced strength. Saying goodbye to Mohinder and joining the new Company, Chris leaves and begins gaining new abilities. Shortly after leaving Cheyenne Mountain, Chris meets up with Mark Stevens. The two discuss his ability and after duplicating it, he heads to California to get Claire's ability. However, before he does, Chris meets up with Adam Park, a mysterious young man. Learning the truth and grabbing two of Adam's abilities, Chris leaves, but not before his inner hollow takes over and does some damage to nearby buildings. Traveling to Virginia, Chris meets Claire, and finds a body. Investigating, the two find out that the body was a victim of an animal attack. Meeting Annie, Claire's hyper roommate, Chris warns her that something will happen soon. Taking Claire's ability, Chris leaves. On his way back East, Chris meets Erik T. Metzger, and gains his teleportation ability. After doing some training with Erik, the two part ways. Going back home to New York City, Chris gets a message from Elle Bishop, who he heard was dead. Saving her life and taking her in. During this time, he takes her ability and sometime later, he leaves, promising that he will be back. Going up to D.C., he meets with Nathan Petrelli and during their meeting, tries to take Nathan's ability of flight. However, he instead takes on Sylar's intuitive aptitude and telekinetic abilities. Chris also takes a part of Sylar's subconscious. After giving in and activating Sylar's intuitive aptitude, Chris gets the "hunger" and begins going on a killing spree, taking on the name, Kelevra (Jewish, meaning bad dog), killing at least one person and taking their abilities. Shortly afterwards, he begins a mission to get Sylar's subconscious out of his mind and back into his own body. He first goes to his aunt, Angela Petrelli, and attempts to gain the information by threatening her. Angela outwits him and Chris confesses to what he's done. Learning of Nathan's actual demise and the plan to make Sylar think that he is Nathan, Chris and Angela strike a deal. In exchange for his silence and non interference, Angela will help Chris keep his secret, a secret. Season 4: Season Four starts out with Chris "investigating" the death of Vera Johnson, an elderly woman with the ability to manipulate plants, and his second victim. In a routine check-in, Chris meets Juliet Bishop, Elle's twin sister. Learning that she has telepathy, he decides to go back on Angela's plan, for the most part, and use Juliet to get Sylar's subconscious back in his own mind. However, Chris and Juliet fall in love and start dating. Hearing about a carnival of evolved humans from Noah Bennet, Chris travels to the carnival and meets Samuel Sullivan, the leader of the carnival. After learning that Samuel can help him control the hunger and get rid of Sylar's subconscious, Chris decides to join his "family". In exchange for doing so and being able to live in the city, Chris agrees to bring others to the carnival in hopes that they'll join. After meeting with Samuel and Lydia, Chris is tasked with bringing Sylar to the carnival. Also getting a picture message on his cell phone from Samantha Miller, he goes to Baltimore, Maryland and meets an amnesic Sylar. On the run from the Baltimore Police, Chris gains a couple more of Sylar's abilities, and the two travel to the carnival, where Samuel welcomes them home. Entering the carnival, Chris gives Sylar part of his memory and part of his consciousness, although his half-brother needs some more work, being conflicted with Nathan's memories. While Sylar sleeps, Chris leaves on another assignment. Supposedly feeling regretful and overwhelmed, Chris decides to talk to Peter, in hopes that his cousin could help him cope and control the hunger. Hearing that Peter and Noah Bennet was ambushed by a speedster, he is also there to make sure Peter is alright. Finding out that Peter has the man, Edgar's super speed ability, Chris offers Peter to absorb his teleportation ability. Peter refuses and tells Chris about a carnival in which Edgar works for. Deciding to go, Peter runs them over there, and Chris snatches Peter's super speed ability beforehand. The two split up and Peter tells him not to do anything Sylar-like. While "searching" for Edgar, Chris meets up with Samuel once more and tells him that Peter's there. Intending to bring Peter to Samuel, the man is surprised when Samuel meets up with them after he finds Peter. Chris introduces the two and tells his cousin that he's joined Samuel's "family", and only brought him here so he could join as well. Peter, clearly upset at what happens, leaves angrily. About to go after his cousin, Chris is stopped by Samuel, who tells him to go talk to his mother. Chris is surprised to see his mother, who is still alive and well. Kathryn explains that she faked her death in order to hide from the government. She met Arnold at the carnival and decided to stay. However, with the Arnold's death, Kathryn feels an empty void. She then tells her son that his ability is flawed and imperfect. Using her ability, she corrects it. Kathryn also tells Chris that his other half-brother, Steven Steele is at the carnival as well and that Chris should see him before he leaves. Meeting up with his brother, Chris and Steven catch up briefly. Steven shows his brother that he can manipulate energy and Chris duplicates the ability, ditching his electric manipulation ability. As he's about to leave, Chris meets up with Hiro Nakamura. Surprised that Hiro's at the carnival, he learns what Samuel did, with Charlie and all. Duplicating Hiro's ability and ditching the teleportation ability, Chris vows to help out Hiro, but not right now. Before he leaves, Hiro tells Chris where he put Mohinder Suresh at. Leaving Steven, his mother, and the carnival, Chris about to go search for Sylar when Juliet tells him that she's pregnant confirming it with a visit to the doctor's, the two spend one last night together before Chris leaves. Deciding to go get help, Chris meets Matt Parkman for the first time and learns that Sylar's consciousness is inside Matt's head. Offering to transfer the consciousness into his own body, Matt refuses, and tells Chris that he'll deal with Sylar himself. As a parting gift, Matt allows Chris to duplicate his telepathy, getting rid of telekinesis. Getting an invitation to the carnival with Juliet, the two go there and thanks to Lydia, they learn that they are having twins. On his way out to get an engagement ring, Chris decides to visit Peter, who is mourning over Nathan's death. Going to the hospital, he stops a potential hostage situation. Learning from Steven that his mother is sick, Chris convinces Peter to go and heal his mother. The three travel back to the carnival, and Peter heals Kathryn. Afterwards, he and Peter talk about the carnival and Samuel. While talking, Chris remembers what Mohinder told him, that Samuel's power is amplified by having other evolved humans around him. Realizing his mistake, Chris promises to leave the carnival. Before taking Peter back, he partially corrects Peter's ability, allowing his cousin to hold onto more abilities, but not a lot. Taking Peter back, Chris decides to try to stop Samuel, but needs help. Finding out that Noah Bennet and Edgar are working together, as well as Peter and a newly reformed Sylar, along with Hiro and Ando, Chris decides to join up with Peter and Sylar, along with helping Noah Bennet. While on the day of Samuel's "big show", Chris attempts to turn some of the other carnies against Samuel, who with the help of Noah Bennet and a brain washed Eli, convince the carnies to leave. Once done, he, Peter and Sylar are about to leave. However, before they do, they Chris witness Claire showing her ability to the world.

Character History (Volume Four: Fugitives)

2008-2009 Second Half of Season 3: Nathan meets with someone in a limousine in Washington, D.C. Nathan says their only option is to get the U.S. government involved. The other man is going over files of Tracy, Micah, Mohinder, Chris, and Hiro, and says that there are many others with powers. Nathan says all the evidence the man needs is there, and he wants to put them in a facility where they won't be a danger to anyone. The man agrees to get them whatever they need. Nathan gets out and says, "Thank you, Mr. President." During this time, Chris and Peter have trying to live a normal life. About a week later, Chris hears from his contact in the government, who gives Chris some interesting news. Contacting Peter, Chris tells him what's going on and he runs into Elle again. Taking her ability again, he tells her what's going on and to run. Both Peter and Chris agree to meet up, but before they meet, Chris is knocked out. He is then taken on a plane, with his powers temporarily suppressed. During this time, the drugs begin to wear off as Claire releases both him and Peter. Fighting the guards, the two take them out, but not before Peter absorbs Tracy's ability and causes the hull to bust open. The plane crash lands and explodes, not before everyone is released. With whatever remaining guards on the way, Chris tells Peter goodbye, promising that he'll talk to him soon. Peter, going after Chris, finds him gone, just gone. After much thought, Chris travels back in time and revives his uncle, Arthur Petrelli. Explaining the situation, Chris brings Arthur to the present, hoping that his uncle would help him take care of Nathan. Unfortunately, Chris is double-crossed as Arthur takes away all of his abilities. Not sure what to do, Chris returns home and talks to his mother. Much to his surprise, Chris learns that Kathryn can restore his original ability. Deciding to get his original ability back, Chris absorbs both his mother's ability and Elle's ability. Leaving again, Chris goes to confront Nathan. Heading over to Nathan's office, Chris confronts his cousin and learns the truth, that Nathan did indeed sell Chris, Peter, and others out. Not sure of what to do, Chris does something desperate. Absorbing Nathan's ability again, Chris grabs his cousin, and flies out of Nathan's office. Up above the city, Chris gives Nathan a choice, expose himself to the government by using his ability to save himself, or die. He then lets go of Nathan. With Nathan saving himself, and fooling his men, Chris takes off from the roof that Nathan landed on, but not before promising Nathan that he'll find a way to stop him. Once back in New York City, Chris runs into his friend Adam Mako. Warning Adam of what's going on and absorbing his ability again, Chris is soon forced into an abandoned building, running into Mohinder Suresh. Absorbing Mohinder's ability, the two fight their way out from Nathan's men. Meeting Mohinder again, the two try to leave New York City and decide to split up. Meeting up with Peter and Claire, the three decide to have Chris take Claire home. Chris and Claire make a detour to Odessa, Texas so Claire can spend one day there. Arriving back in Costa Verde, Chris teaches Claire how to defend herself. Leaving, Chris visits Tommy Oliver and Ethan James in Reefside, California, but not before visiting Samantha Miller. Warning them on what is going to happen, Chris absorbs their abilities, figuring that they might be useful later on. Mimicking Samantha's precognition, Chris sketches himself in New York City with a man that he used to know. Feeling that he has to meet the man, Chris leaves and goes to New York City. Once back in New York City, Chris runs into an old high school friend, Leonardo Lawliet. Absorbing and mimicking Leo's ability, Chris asks Leo to come with him to his mother's house to try to stay under the radar. Leo agrees and the two travel and meet Chris' mother. Once at his mother's house, Chris finds his birth certificate and finds out that it's fake. Asking his mother, Chris learns that he is adopted and that a mutual friend of theirs, Samson Gray, offered to give them baby Chris in exchange for money. Both Ben and Kathryn agreed and adopted Chris. Remembering that Sylar's last name is Gray, Chris goes realizes that he and Sylar are brothers, and takes off to find him. Before Chris can meet up with Sylar, he is captured by his men and taken to Building 26. Learning that his friend, Matt Sullivan is an evolved human, Chris absorbs his ability and escapes. After about a day of searching, Chris finds Sylar once more. Along with Sylar, Chris meets Luke Campbell, who's traveling with the killer. Saving himself from the two, Chris learns that they are looking for Sylar's father, Samson Gray. While on the road to meet Samson, Chris decides to do something that could possibly end the hunt for evolved humans. He learns how to use Sylar's original ability, Intuitive Aptitude. Now having "the hunger", Chris kills Michael Adams and takes his ability of magnetism. Finally meeting his father, Chris learns that his biological mother is Kathryn Steele. Once Kathryn found out that she was pregnant, Samson agreed to keep quiet, in exchange for money. Learning the truth, Chris leaves, leaving Samson to die alone. Running into Peter again, the two decide to team up and go after Danko, who unbeknownst to them, is working with Sylar. After barely escaping Danko and Sylar's grasp, Chris flees to Mexico, where he meets up with Nathan once more. Learning that Nathan's secret has been revealed, Chris reluctantly teams up with his older cousin in order to fix things, suppressing the hunger as he does.

Chris awakens later by a future Peter Petrelli and accidentally absorbs Induced Radioactivity, in which he starts to glow. Calming down, Chris theorizes that his future self somehow gave him a new ability, which allows him to absorbs other people's abilities. After being brought back to New York by Future Peter, Chris decides to go to Costa Verde to get Claire's ability to regenerate. After briefly catching up and gaining Claire's ability, Chris leaves back for New York City. Sometime later, Chris then receives a phone call from his distraught mother, who tells him that his father is dead. Going back to his home, via Future Peter, Chris meets Devon, an escapee from the Company, who murdered his father and wants to kill him. After a brief fight, Future Chris arrives and tells Present Chris who he got his abilities from. He is about to tell Present Chris a secret about their uncle, Arthur Petrelli, but stops and leaves. Chris returns home and tells Future Peter what happened. The two are about to leave when Future Chris arrives and takes Future Peter, their fates unknown. A moment later, Peter from the present returns from the future, changed. Peter attempts to kill Chris in order to see how he works, but Chris stops him, using two new abilities (Sound Manipulation and Pyrokinesis). After which, Chris learns that Sylar is Peter and Nathan's brother, meaning his cousin. He also learns that Peter can now use Sylar's original ability and it's dangerous side effect. Chris meets with Nathan, hoping to get his help to bring the Company down. Gaining Nathan's ability and getting no help from him, Chris leaves. He soon returns to the Company and begins to hunt all the escaped villains, making enemies along the way. Encountering Hiro Nakamura, who is trying to get his half of the formula back, Chris decides to sidetrack and help out Hiro. After accidentally gaining Hiro's ability, Chris decides to try to control his power absorption ability. After gaining partial control over it, Chris encounters Daphne Millbrook, who after absorbing her ability, gives him a card to Pinehearst, before speeding off. Chris is left there trying to figure out what exactly is going on. Returning to the Company, Chris learns that Peter has gone to Pinehearst to find out what exactly is going on, but hasn't been heard from him in a few hours. Making up his mind, Chris quits the Company and teleports over to Pinehearst. Sneaking in, he finds Peter, who tells him that his late uncle is the one behind all of this and that he took all of Peter's powers. Confused, Chris hears his name and turns around. He is surprised and shocked to see his uncle, Arthur Petrelli, alive and well. Facing off with Arthur, Chris learns that he and his future self got their power absorption ability from Arthur. Escaping and meeting up with Samantha Miller, they begin to think of a new strategy. Chris soon learns that Arthur and his team are on the move, and going after him, Peter, Claire, and Angela. Soon, Knox meets up with Chris, who tells him that Arthur sent him to kill Chris. The two soon begin a one-on-one battle and the second eclipse begins. While this is happening, both of them lose their abilities and Chris learns of his true power, like Arthur and Peter, he can absorb other people's abilities, as well as information at a much faster rate, like a computer. Defeating Knox, Chris calls his mother to tell him what he knows. Kathryn tells him that he is one of the four "powerhouses" (him, Arthur, Peter, and Sylar), people who can use multiple abilities at once. She also invites him over to see someone. Arriving at his parents' house, Chris is surprised to see his brother, Steven there. After a brief family reunion with Steven, Chris senses that Peter is in trouble and teleports to Primatech. Learning from Angela that Peter and Nathan hadn't returned from retrieving the Haitian, Chris teleports to Haiti and finds Peter in the jungle. Finding out that Nathan left to join his uncle, Chris and Peter begin searching for the Haitian. Meeting Baron Samedi, the Haitian's half-brother, Chris absorbs Samedi's ability of Impenetrable Skin, but learns that he can't mimic the ability (due to the fact that he can't have both Impenetrable Skin and Rapid Cell Regeneration active at the same time). Holding off Samedi and his men until the Haitian arrives, the three subdue Samedi and teleport back to Primatech. Splitting up, Chris travels to Pinehearst in hopes of finishing Arthur first, but fails. Learning of what happened to Hiro, Chris travels into the past and is confronted by Kaito Nakamura. After a brief encounter and not finding the Hiro from the present, Chris returns to the present. Going back to Pinehearst, Chris encounters Sylar once more. Getting the upper hand in the battle, Chris absorbs all of Sylar's new abilities, but doesn't know what they are. After the Haitian subdues Sylar, Chris goes back to Primatech to make sure the killer is locked away. With Sylar escaping, the Haitian tells Chris to go get help, but instead, he encounters Matt, Daphne, and Ando, who hopes that Ando will get an ability that will rescue Hiro. Injecting Ando with the formula and absorbing his new ability, Chris travels back to Pinehearst, just in time for Mohinder's lab to explode. Seeing Peter and Nathan fly out just as the explosion happens, Chris goes after them. Getting there as Nathan flies off, Chris finds out the Peter took the formula and has his abilities back. Chris and Peter wonder what will happen now.

Three weeks after he set off on his quest, Chris blacked out once again and woke up a month later in Paris, France, with no recollection of the past month. When he does wake up, Chris notices that the Symbol is tattooed across his back. Particularly unphased by this set back, Chris once again travels the globe in search of Peter Petrelli. Season 2: As he travels the globe in search of Peter, Chris gets a call from Angela Petrelli, saying that Nathan has been released from the hospital. Going back to New York, Chris spends some time with Nathan before hearing that Angela was arrested for the death of Kaito Nakamura. Going to the police station, Chris meets Detective Matt Parkman, an evolved human with the ability of telepathy. Soon, Chris, Nathan, and Matt are on the hunt for Kaito's killer. After hearing Angela's "confession", Chris travels to Arizona to find his mother and father, hoping that nothing has happened to them. Before leaving New York, Chris encounters Adam Monroe, who claims to know him and is searching for Peter. The two split up, looking for Peter, but Chris having an uneasy feeling about Adam. After four months of searching, Chris finally finds an amnesic Peter Petrelli living in Cork, Ireland. There, Chris as an encounter with his ex-girlfriend, Elle, and discovers her ability and how deadly it can be. After escaping Elle, Chris finds himself at Caitlin's (Peter's new girlfriend), apartment. Seeing a painting of himself, Peter, and Caitlin, the three go to Montreal in search for clues into Peter's past. Once at Montreal, Chris receives a text and picture message from a Samantha Miller, who claims she can paint the future. Getting the ok from Peter, Chris travels to Lake Arrowhead, California and meets Samantha Miller, who turns out to be 84 years old. After spending several days with Samantha, Chris contacts Peter, who comes to Lake Arrowhead and sees the paintings for himself. After meeting with Peter and Samantha, Chris and Peter split up, looking for the strain of the Shanti virus that will kill 93% of the world's population. During this time Chris is unable to access his ability (he is infected by the Shanti virus, a strain of the virus that is very similar to the one Niki and Sylar has). Soon, the symptoms of the Shanti virus get worse and Chris contacts Mohinder. Meeting with Mohinder, Chris is injected with the cure and eventually feels better. After being cured of the virus, Chris learns everything there is to know about the virus and learns that his blood now is a cure for the strain of the virus that he had. Thanking Mohinder, Chris once again sets off to find the fatal strain of the Shanti virus. Post Season 2/Pre-Season 3: After destroying the Shanti virus, Chris hears from Peter and learns that Nathan as been shot. Rushing over to Odessa, Texas, Chris comes up with a daring, yet dangerous idea. Chris injects himself with Peter's blood, hoping to remember what happened to him a month after Peter exploded. Shortly after doing so, Chris recovers his lost memory and learns that Peter, Nathan, and he are related (they're cousins). He soon realizes that he can regenerate, though Chris theorizes that this is temporarily. After that, Chris learns that Nathan will recover from his bullet wounds. Shortly afterwards, Nathan tells Chris that Peter has went off with Adam. Telling Nathan that he will find Peter, Chris leaves to go find Peter, but is confronted by Bob Bishop, who offers him the job of finding Peter and bringing him into the Company. Not wanting to turn in his own cousin, Chris refuses to work with Bob and the Company and begins to walk off, but he is soon knocked unconscious, and taken back to the Company. After spending a few days with Bob, Chris agrees to help find Peter, but soon ditches the Company after he is back out in the real world. After a while Chris attempts to take down the Company, which eventually leads him to be captured and under Bob's orders, put into a cell on Level 3.

Character History (Volume Zero: Origins)

(I've decided to put all of Chris' character history into volumes, like from Heroes. The history will be updated as my RP storylines. Also note that I've put the years in which the history takes place in.) 1980-2006 Pre-Season 1: Chris Steele was born on July 11, 1980 in Mesa, Arizona. His father, Benjamin Franklin Steele, was a colonel in the United States Army. An only child, Chris moved around a lot when he was growing up, living on various Air Force bases around the world, but was mostly stationed on the West Coast of the United States, in New York, and in Tokyo, Japan. Chris was about 8 years old when he first met the Petrellis, who were friends of his father. After meeting them several times, Chris became friends with Peter, the Petrellis' youngest son. Every time their parents got together, Peter and Chris would always play together, with Peter's older brother Nathan, coming along to make sure the two were safe and stayed out of trouble. Chris was 15 when his powers manifested. He first noticed he reflectively moved a lawn chair a few feet. Not knowing how his parents would take his story, Chris kept it to himself. Even though he tried to do it again, Chris found out that whatever ability he had, was only reflective and that he couldn't willing control it. Then, on July 14, 1996, Chris decided to attempt to tell his parents that he might have an ability. They didn't buy it and after Chris left the room; his father levitated a spoon off the table, revealing that at least his father has an ability as well. When Chris first started high school, he met a girl by the name Elle Bishop. Chris had instantly fallen in love with Elle, but was afraid to show his love, not knowing if she loved him or not. It wasn't until his second semester in the 10th grade when he finally told Elle about his feelings towards her. Chris was surprised that Elle had feelings for him as well. Soon, the two started dating and they quickly became boyfriend and girlfriend. The two dated until near the end of their senior year in high school, when they broke up for unknown reasons. Shortly before Chris graduated from high school, his family took one last vacation to Japan, where Chris met Kaito Nakamura (Hiro's father), who turned out to be another one of his father's close friends. Having spent a portion of his childhood in Japan, Chris had mastered Japanese and enjoyed the country before returning back to the United States. Six Months Ago: By his 27th birthday, Chris had already moved out on his own, where he was living in an apartment with his friend, Jack Miller, for a few months. Fueled by curiosity on his own, unknown ability, Chris had decided to do some research on people with abilities. It was there that he came across the name Chandra Suresh. Thinking that he had an ability, Chris tried to contact Chandra, only to learn that he was recently killed. A short time later, Chris found information on a Dr. Thomas Oliver, who believed that the human race is evolving and that there may be people with abilities already out there. Intrigued by Dr. Oliver, Chris contacted him and the two met. Dr. Oliver ran tests on Chris and told him that he has the ability to manipulate magnetic fields and with training can also generate magnetic fields. During their training, they make another discovery about Chris. They discover that Chris is more resilient to physical injury and can take quite a beating before succumbing to his injuries. While this is happening, Chris met Ethan James and discovered that he can bend metal using his ability. Chris trained with Dr. Oliver for six months before saying goodbye and traveling to New York to tell Peter and Nathan about his new abilities. As a farewell gift, Tommy gave Chris a metal disc that works with Chris' ability, which could come in handy on his journey.

Some rules, expectations and stuff
Current mood:  adored

Louis is a complex character and I play him to the best of my abilities and with the utmost respect for his creator.  I have read the books up to and including Merrick.  I am well versed in the Anne Rice Characters.  Although Rice saw to have him resurrected and heightened, I do not emphasize those traits in my writing.  I do play him physically strong with enhanced senses and intuitive but, he cannot read minds, fly, set you on fire etc.  I leave those powers for the ancients to enjoy. Many see Louis as a weak, whimpering poor excuse for a vampire.  I do not play him as the brooding, feeding on rats, crying over his lost mortally portrayed in the movie.  If that image (which by the way is a very short scene) is stuck in your head please leave.  I will only allow such arrogance from a VERY GOOD Lestat.  Why?  Because I know Lestat and the love hate relationship the characters share.       I keep it canon but am open to playing with non-Rice characters.  Regardless of what character you portray, I expect for you know my character.  I can assure you that I will study your bio, look at your pictures and read your bulletins. Here are some character traits to keep in mind as we play:  A loner to a degree.  Religious but questions his faith. A lover of beauty in nature, creativity and above all mortals.   A romantic and emotional nature (not to be confused with boy toy or emo)   He can be a vicious killer (that's right.  He's a vampire.) A pondering and questioning mind. He does not trust easily.  Trust must be earned and I assure you if it is it will be eternal, even if we go our separate ways (properly of course).  Yes, it happens.  Nothing lasts forever.  A current day plot will have Louis assimilated in everyday life (butcher, baker, candle stick maker...all depends on the collaboration). Role play in general: I am a para/novella writer.  I make an effort to spell and grammar check.  I appreciate the same effort from those I write with.  I have no problem with sending the starter.  Just ask and give me time to look at your bio. Not the fastest writer in the role play realm.  If you can't wait then don't play with me. Don't hesitate to message me with any questions or concerns.  I can't read your mind.      In closing I'd like to say that writing should be a joy, not a chore.  It is an ongoing learning experience and sharing through role play can be very rewarding.  The ability to inspire a co-writers creativity is a thrill.  If it's not fun, respectful and productive, it's not worth the effort.  I thank my mentors for their patience.  I have learned more from them than any instructional book.  And, thank you for taking the time to read this. NOTE: Not RolePlaying at this time.

For those looking for a starter.

Most of the last century was spent traveling the world in search of knowledge and history.   My passion for art and ancient architecture was bottomless.  The more I saw the more I craved.  At first, it was the paintings of the masters.  DaVinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo.  You can't imagine the layers upon layers of colors that the hand of man labored within each work.  The vampiric eye can see deeper within the canvas.  Many times I uncovered the mystery that lay beneath the final work.  The first attempts that were discarded with a mere coating of whitewash, for the artist to begin anew.  The follies were invisible to the human eye, but most revealing to me.  Ah, the secrets I could expose, but choose not to.  Why?  What was the point?  I had respect for the artist's secrets.  Yes, that is what they shall remain.    The exploration of the ancient ruins of Rome and the pyramids of Egypt which Armand and I explored together temporarily filled the growing emptiness that time had ravaged me with.  Only the sensual landscapes of these lands so rich in history, pain and beauty eased my soul.  But even if only for a short lived moment, a moment which was but a spec of dust in the immortal timeline, could I forget what I was...a soul damned to walk in eternal darkness, tied to me with no hope for escape.  Armand, I think of him now and then.  These were good times, for lack of a better term I guess, for this short span of time.  But we drifted apart.  Further and further till there was nothing to keep us together.  It was my doing.  I will admit to that.  And now I walk this road alone.   Perhaps it is because I no longer believed what Armand tried to instill, that God had a purpose for our existence.  I questioned God, but got no response.  I questioned his existence over and over until I could ponder it no more.  The little humanity that I guarded shattered within me.  I had finally and fully succumbed to this nature, the beast that I am.  For that is my legacy now, my truth.  It is the reality that I loath, a life I can no longer share with another.  Yet, to this day I still cannot bring myself to take the final walk into the burning rays of dawn.  Somewhere, buried in the depths of my mind where my brothers beliefs of eternal damnation brought about with the act of suicide.  Such a quandary to be caught in.  Ah, Louis...Damned if you do, damned if you don't. So I continue to travel.  To explore life's mysteries.  To take from it only what I need to survive.  That is all.  I always wanted to visit the ancient churches of Germany.  One in particular beckoned me, the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew.  Its majestic Gothic form took hundreds of years to build and all was almost lost in the great fire in 1867.  It was thought to be a sign from God to the people of Frankfurt.  A sign of their conquest to Prussia.  'Would God show himself in such a way?" I thought.  "No.  Because he does not exist.  God would not suffer me to exist.  And, truly, only man is capable of destruction."    I did my research.  Frankfurt would be next on my list.  There were many sites to see.  Several museums and opera houses to satisfy his lust.  Such a wealth for its relatively small size.  And of course, the Cathedral.  I preferred to travel in the more modern mode of today, the airplane.  It was quicker.  And although my need to feed has lessened over time, I would rather not be confined to ship travel.  It only brought back haunting memories of the past.  Fleeing New Orleans for Europe with Claudia in hopes of finding others of their kind.  I pushed those thoughts from my mind when they arose to the surface like drops of oil in water.  What good was it to dwell on the past, the loss.  It could not serve any purpose but to plunge me further into abyss of loneliness.  But I could not fully wipe the memory of his Claudia away.  She will remain always in my heart.  Her tragedy an eternal life lesson for me. It was early evening and my arrival in Frankfurt was without incident.  The sun was just setting in the west.  Although, I could tolerate some exposure, the skin would still blister and require me to feed for healing.  Why provoke the need if it was not necessary and I had already feed before boarding so my look would be more mortal.  Time has a way of leaving a definable mark upon the immortal person.  The more perceptive human can sense it but not explain it.  Hopefully my victim was an evil doer.  I no longer made the effort to try and read their minds.  I take them quickly, painlessly.  But of course it is never without gratification.  The sensual thrill of it always slid into me with each draught of blood that flowed into my mouth.  I cannot deny the ecstasy of the kill.  That would be impossible.  I traveled lightly, not needing much in the way of luggage and quickly left the crowded airport.  Stepping outside, it always amazed me how the air was different in each place visited.  Was it not the same Earth, the same sky and atmosphere?  It was unique and intriguing mystery.   Instinctively I made my way to the Church, as if I were being summoned.  I entered the great through the grand south portal graced with the figure of St. Bartholomew himself.  My footsteps echoed as I slowly graced the main walk.  The Crucified Christ hung high before me, the altar ahead.  The great art and sculptures came alive with my vampiric eye.  I reasoned this to what I believed to be that the work contained the essence of the artists' soul.  Yes, I believe that immortality does exist in this fashion among mortal men.  I took a seat in the pew and tried to imagine the morning rays of sun shining threw the magnificent stained glass the adorned the walls.  I was lost in this tranquility.  That was until the sound of  footsteps echoed in the shadows.  Ethereal steps have their own unique way of resonating the night.  Yes, somewhere within these hallowed walls was another.
