    Of course. However, using psychic powers to create something complicated as, say, an apple or a robot I might question.

    (Callos, Kasanip, and Innis may disagree with me, though. >.> You should listen to what they say before you read my ramblings.)

    So if that's the power which makes things go well for you, would a power that makes thing go badly for your opponent be called Calamity Trigger?


    What about the power to negate the effects of charge between two objects?

    Mind Control really isn't something grounded in physics. I don't really know if it's something that a Psychic could do, but controling animals is more complicated then controling humans. They may be a baser creature in the realm of complex and abstract thought (in most regards. Dolphin's can preform abstract thought we've found).

    Behavioral control is another issue altogether. We do that every day. People's body language, tone and inflection in their voice and mood effect everyone near by. If you were going to go off something like that, it's a little more plausable.

    I'll probably participate with one character. His ability will be Blood Control, or "analysis and control over molecular bonds of organic compounds", if I really, really have to explain it in scientific terms.

    I think I'll have him start as level 1, and work his way upwards during the plot. Here are powers for each level I'd imagine him to have. Up to level 4, they're supposed to nly have range of Self and Touch:

    Level 1:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Stop or increase bleeding
    • Improve blood circulation, easing headaches and muscle pain.
    • ...also, cause someone to blush involuntarily.


    Level 2:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Limited control over skin and eye color - that is, he can decide how pale or blushy he looks, or have creepy red eyes.
    • Prevent oxygen from binding with hemoglobin, making himself / someone else feel nauseous, possibly causing fainting.
    • Control blood sugar and adrenaline levels, effectively boosting someone's strenght or robbing someone of energy. Also useful for treating diabetes or allergic shocks!


    Level 3:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Cause thrombosis, causing muscle failure and potentially death.
    • Speed up or slow down creation of anitbodies within a body (cure poison and disease, in other words)
    • Force blood cells to replicate, replenishing lost blood supplies.


    Level 4:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Identify someone by blood
    • Track people by stench of their blood
    • Permanently alter composure of someone's blood., potentially curing or causing effects similar to AIDS or hemophilia, or changing a person's blood type.
    • Alter full hormonal components of human body, affecting emotions, muscle growth, recovery from injuries and so forth.


    Level 5:
    Spoiler
    Show
    • Use all aforementioned abilities from range, without physically touching a person.
    • Use pressurized blood as a viable weapon.


    He's likely to be exteremely delinquent, and more than a little bit likely to weird out everyone else on routine basis. As such, I have no idea what place or group he should belong to. XD Suggestions as to what kind of part he might play are welcome.

    I find this funny because the guy's ability is called Dark Matter not because that's what he makes, but because what he does create isn't understood by science yet...and he might have named it himself to make it sound cooler. xD

    @Innis: And yup..powers seem mostly scientific...until you get into gemstones, but they are freaks of nature in other ways.

    Delinquent, eh?

    He would probably fit best either as a relatively rough fellow in Onizuka Middle School (the more prestigious Azabu might be less willing to take someone like him in >.>) or as one of many delinquent folks in Skill Out.

    It's real life "Mind Control". There's a standard of emotional frame works the human mind (and even animals) operate in. If that changes, their mood and temprement shift. It's the reason why if you sit in a room with people who are all furious (like the DMV) your more likely to not be as level headed as you could be. Colors, tempatures and ambiance also have a good part in it. Red for example causes agression. It's why hospital rooms are generally a soft blue tint or color.

    Ah, hm. Well, I'll see what I can do. Right now, I have an idea for a pair of twins. One being an Animal Empath, the other being a Technopath (specifically, she can turn an electron on or off to the extent where she's able to reprogram an electronic.)

    Specifically, between the main continuity and the events of Angel Notes. At some point prior to the events of that story, something "killed" the planet, covering it in a toxic substance called "Gin" or "Grain", though humans eventually developed a tolerance for it. In the meantime they created the A-Rays, creatures genetically engineered from human and animal DNA which could absorb Gin to power special abilities.

    The Black Beast seems to fit the "planet killer" bill, with Gin being basically the same thing as seithr, and the Kaka clan are oh so obviously the first A-Rays. Bang might even be an early example of the freakishly powerful Ether Liners.

    Rachel is most likely the descendant of Arcueid Brunestud and Tohno Shiki - she can remember the previous timelines due to her inheriting the Pure Eyes of the Nanaya clan, which allow the owner to see things which normally cannot be seen. This is supported by the power of Observers being referred to as "The Eye".

    "The Boundary" is the same thing as the "Akasha", "Root" or "Origin" desired by all magi. Both the Azure Grimoire and the Holy Grail are described as "devices to reach Origin", use homunculi with white-blonde hair and red eyes as mediums, and can produce monsters made of darkness under the wrong circumstances. In addition, "The Third Magic" used by the Holy Grail has the power to keep souls in the world after they should have passed on, which seems to describe Terumi. Arakune's transformation is the result of him following imperfect rituals left by the Makiri family. Somehow, Litchi gained access to The Second Magic used by Zelretch (with similar effects to those of the Kaleidostick's Prism Trance).

    The Sankishin go as follows:
    • Tsukoyomi: Named after a moon god, this contains the remaining power of Crimson Moon Brunestud (aka Type-Moon), hence why it is held by a vampire.
    • Susanoo: The White Beast of Gaia, Primate Murder, attempted to stop the Black Beast but was killed. Its remains were reshaped into a suit of armour, and its wearer inherited its task of protecting Gaia as a being similar to a Counter Guardian.
    • Amaterasu: Gaia itself, or posibly a "Type-Sol" (who is presumably killed before the events of Angel Notes).

    Saya is likely a descendant of Sakura or Sion (see WMG further up the page). Given the resemblance of her Boundary-granted abilities to Kaleidoscope, Litchi might be descended from the Tohsakas (who were known to study Chinese martial arts).

    The principles behind Touko Aozaki's "Mystic Eye killer" glasses were used to create the Izayoi, and Relius Clover may very well have studied her doll-making techniques.

    Acceletor, who's power would be better summarized as control over kinetic energy, could potentially create any mechanic phenomena, and with clever usage, probably every observable phenomena in existence.

    I did a spit-take when I read abilities of these level 5 psykers. It's good they have limits, otherwise they'd be more broken than Aizen and Majin Buu combined.

    Dark matter is indeed dark - if it reflected any sort of normal radiation, it wouldn't be dark and we'd be able to notice it. However, "dark" in this case refers to our complete inability to directly observe such matter, not the normal "dark color" sense.

    Yep.

    Pretty much.


    Regardless, I do like your character's powerset; it's interesting and not something yet seen in canon material.

    What you seem to be going after is intangibility. Taken scientifically, your described ability would just break everything into energy.

    Some things you should think about:

    • Your character will still presumably be affected by gravity, otherwise he'd disappear into nothingness everytime he uses the power. Some part of him must always remain solid, otherwise he'll sink through the earth.
    • Does entropy affect the character while intangible, and if so, how? In easier terms, does he age, or need to eat, sleep or breathe while intangible? Do his senses work normally?
    • How selective the power is? Can he turn tangible within solid objects? What happens if he does?

    Those problems are why I said "between two objects". If he wanted to walk through a wall, he would negate the repulsive force between his body and the wall, but not his body and the ground.

    Here's an example of the character creation process. First you fill out something like what I'm going to have below (who I do intend on playing, so don't forget to comment). You fix all any kinks or issues with it, then you go to the Wiki. Click the 'Character' page on the side bar. There, you'll see a box to create a new character, just have to put in their name. Proceed to do so in the naming format for their ethnicity (last name first name for Japanese for instance, or first name last name if they aren't japanese). Hit 'Add New Character' and it'll come up with a box with a template that'll ask for similar information to what I have below. Just fill out the information (leave it blank if you don't have anything for there) then just hit save. Formatting buttons (like bold and stuff) are above that window, just like at Giants. Your character will be automatically added to the character's page and that'll be that. That's pretty much the entire process so there's no excuse not to add your character to the wiki now, I've simplified it as much as I can (with lot's of Prime's help ((and thanks for the help with the top toolbar, how do I edit that to add new OOC/IC threads to it though?)) )
    Name: Kasusa Sakurako
    Aliases: None
    Level: 4
    Gender: Female
    Age: Fifteen
    Groups: Judgement

    Description:


    Appearance: Sakurako is a petite girl with red hair that she's dyed to a deeper crimson color out of vanity, which she wears down to just past her shoulders but tied back in a long pony-tail held in place by twin green orbs. She has an open and friendly face, making it easy to tell what she's thinking about most of the time, and generally complies with Tokiwaida's dress code about wearing the school uniform even on days off. Thus she's usually seen in the sweater-vest/dress shirt/skirt combo.

    There are however a couple odd additions to her school uniform though. The first is a pair of bloomers underneath her skirt because teleporting one's self upside down could accidentally cause a fair bit of embarrassment. The second is the green armband signifying she's a member of Judgement, though she'll often stash this out of sight. Finally there are two bands around her upper thighs where numerous large metal spikes are stashed as well as a pair of Judgement handcuffs or two.

    Sakurako possesses a feminine figure in the sense she has no reason to be overly jealous of most other girls, but she is also rather lean because of all the agility training she needs to practice.

    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mischievous, vibrant, full of life, and a joy to be around. Sakurako takes a great delight in playing small practical jokes, not out of any intent to harm but because the reactions amuse her to no end. It's making her friends and associates slightly uncomfortable or embarrassed that's the draw for her, something that has gotten her beaten by her class-mates several times for 'accidentally' going too far. Not that she minds, sometimes you have to suffer consequences for your actions. The red-haired girl is also rather open about her attraction to other girls, but only in the sense she doesn't believe it's something shameful, something she should try to hide, or the only thing that makes up who she is. In her own words...

    "So I prefer the fairer sex, so what? I also like greasy American food, but no one seems to care about that. Why should this be any different?"
    That hasn't stopped her using this to tease others though...

    On duty, she maintains the same cheerful manner but is much more serious, especially when it's come to someone who has harmed other people without a good cause. While not a pacifist, she believes violence doesn't solve too much on it's own and thus doesn't play around when subduing a suspect, seeking to end it quickly and cleanly with minimal people hurt.

    At Tokiwadai, she's known for good grades (most of the time) and for tutoring younger students in her off time. Her room-mate has remarked that Sakurako spends most of the time in their room writing emails or preparing videos to send back to her family, especially her little sister.


    Abilities

    Esper Ability: Instant Teleportation

    As a Level 4, Sakurako's ability to teleport objects begins to take on an almost fantastic turn. She is capable of teleporting an object into another object. Rather then end up destroying the object or being unable to perform the teleportation, the object she's teleporting will displace the surrounding material until it occupies the space Sakurako intends it to. In such a fashion she can teleport nails into the ground to pin an opponent or slice through cement and steel with a pane of regular glass. However, she's only capable of teleporting objects (not living creatures) that she can touch. In addition, the only objects she can teleport weigh below 285 to 295 pounds as long as she knows where the 'end point' is in relation to herself, and can be teleported up to 265 to 275 feet away. Thus she can teleport an object to somewhere she can't see, but it's difficult unless she was recently at that location.

    However, her aim is not perfect and on an ill-aimed teleport, what she was sending could end up to five feet away from where she intended so she always takes a moment to collect herself before attempting to teleport something. In addition it requires intense focus and spatial awareness to get a jump down right, so if something disrupts her focus then it can take upwards of half a minute to get back into the right frame of mind. Even something is as seemingly minor as a good punch or kick will disrupt her concentration if she isn't prepared for it.

    Additional Uses: She may also teleport herself at the same range (within sight) though she can now 'safely' teleport herself to locations she can't see up to fifty feet away. Though unless she has memorized the 'end point', she risks teleporting herself into an object and possibly harming herself, meaning shorter jumps are still safer.

    Physical Traits:
    -First Aid Training: Practically a prerequisite for any self-respecting Judgement member, especially if they have an active interest in helping people.
    -Jujutsu: As useful as it is to teleport, she only carries around fifteen spikes at a time and she usually can't collect them again in the middle of a fight usually. To this end she's competent in jujutsu, but for actual fighting as opposed to tournament fighting.
    -Good Singer: No application in fighting of any kind, Sakurako just likes to sing and is surprisingly good at it.

    Mental Traits:
    -Spatial Awareness: This is a must for her Instant Teleportation to work. If she doesn't know where she's sending something, she can't send it there.
    -Good with Computers: Partially Judgement training, partially a skill she's acquired from living in Academy City. If something is low security she might be able to access it. If it's medium security then she can ATTEMPT to get access but will likely fail. High security computerized systems are so utterly beyond her it's not even funny.

    Notable Equipment:
    -14 steel spikes- Used to non-lethally detain a suspect.
    -Handcuffs- Same use as above, used to detain a suspect until Anti-Skill can pick them up.

    Okay. Next question becomes: define "object".

    That power has some really interesting applications, BTW. Like shooting people through walls. Or hiding within a massive object that's like air to you but rock solid to others. XD

    Click the "Threads" link in the left bar. The content of that page is automatically included in top menu page (nav:top).

    I suppose it would be more of a shapable field...

    The latter would be tricky, since said object would not contain air. And he wouldn't be able to see while inside it.

    To limit potential abuse, maybe he must denote his own body as one of the two objects. Otherwise he could kill people by making them fall into the ground. Or remove the force between two sections of an object to make it collapse.

    It's very close to Japan but it's important to note that I don't think it really falls under Japan's sovereignty since so many other countries have an interest in it. After all...when was the last time you heard of a city with a Kill-Sat and army?

    Ah, okay.

    So it's fine if I make a pair of twins, right?

    Do I ask too many questions?

Most times the effect is random on how it helps him, whether it be a bullet narrowly missing a vital organ, to getting a straight flush in poker. With concentration, Takeshi could shift a section of reality in place where a door was in fact left unlocked, or the milk he was drinking wasnít expired.

    I am hesitant of this ability because it seems more of a [Magic] ability. It also to me seems of the same category as [Time Power] which I do not think should be in the RP because they are too powerful and difficult to limit.

    It's close to Tokyo. Yes, it is in Japan. But yes, it has autonomy. Maybe it is not so different than Vatican City (and in some ways of the books, this is important).

    Depends on the twins, would have to see the characters. But playing twins can be immensely rewarding to do (or was for me).

    Yes. But it's good you ask them too!

    It's not really time control, because it only effects moments. He can't pluck moments out of order for his power. They have to be co-terminus with what he's doing. It is also based on the Infinite Worlds Theory, which states that any action creates an infinite number of worlds where such actions were not taken. It's not time control, it's causality control.

    You have a point, but isn't Dark Matter's ability pretty [Magic] like?

    I'll try to narrow down and specify what the power can do here on the lower scale (Nor do I intend to go to level 5 with it).

    Continuum Shift is a power that changes possibilities. Its possible with the Infinte Worlds theory that in some world, the door to say....a bank safe was left unlocked because of human or technical error. But in Takeshi's world, it's locked. So, if he concentrate's really really hard (At this level) he can shift that part of the possible moment. The moment he's in and no other to effect said door. He can't "Skip" time. He can't retract things from the past. That possibility has passed. He can't bring people back to life. If they were going to die from a gunshot and he was there, at that moment, and he again concentrated really really really hard. He could shift the bullet to a non vital area. But he can't stop the bullet itself.

    In it's normal state, without concentration, it's random. He can't control what or when the power is going to kick in. He might end up going to the girls locker room naked. Unless he's really working to make it work for himself, it's just as easy for it to blow up in his face.

    It's a little tricky to explain without the actual science behind it But, perhaps the way I wrote it made it seem a little more like time control then it was intended to be.
