Name: Dallas GreenCodename: SlipstreamAge: 16Gender: MaleFaction: X-MenPower(S): Dallas is a timeshifter; he has the ability to concentrate and send out bubbles or ripples of temporal energy that slow or speed time. Depending on his use of these waves, he can increase the agility and speed of himself or those around him, or slow said speed. He can also use this to slow such objects as bullets and knives, which may be coming at him or someone around him. In contrast, this can also mean he can speed the growth of plants or the cooking of food, so really, when it comes down to it, his power is used just as much outside of battle as it is inside, if not more. Dallas is also an empath, able to detect strong feelings and emotions in those around him and often feeling them himself; this can lead to severe mental stress at times, but he's coping. Slowly.Appearance: Tall and on the lean side, almost slightly starved looking, Dallas is a natural looker. With a light natural tan that only California can give a kid, electric blue eyes that fizzle with life and energy on a permanent basis, and perfectly kept blonde hair, he could be considered a "heartthrob" at any regular high school. His general clothing is just a regular, solid-colored v neck of some kind, some variation of slim or skinny-fit Levi's, Vans classic slip-ons, and a tight, thin black hoodie that does more to enhance his looks than protect him from cold.Weapons: Nada.Skills: Physically, Dallas has trained himself with his fists, but he's not any sort of martial artist; he's built for endurance, practicing parkour and free running on the grounds of the Academy regularly. Rather, Dallas's skill lies in his mind: he's one of the most brilliant creative and artistic minds the world has ever seen, able to freestyle music without a single second of hesitation, act as well as any Hollywood A-lister, bang out sketches of events and places he's seen only in passing with an uncanny precision and grace, and play five instruments. His room is a cyberpunk utopia, with a mini recording setup for him to practice his production skills, two different gaming stations with minifridges that are well-stocked enough to survive a zombie apocalypse, and a DVD/music/book collection that could "make the friggin Library of Congress go home and rethink its life." (A bit of an exaggeration to most people, but Dallas has always had a flair for the dramatic)Personality: Dallas is a teenage bohemian: he's always had a bit of an uncanny and liberal view of what constitutes art and music. This is because it is so closely intertwined with his being: he suffers from music-to-color synesthesia, which means that when he hears a particular instrument or piece of music, he perceives it as a color. It allows him to pinpoint an instrument, no matter how vague or small in the distance, and it gives him an almost sibling-esque bond with music. When he's not recording or playing around, he's focusing on ideas for how to change the world, and this can leave him somewhat dreamy and distracted looking. When you have his attention, he's sharp, witty, and engaging in a conversation, all while managing to be polite and friendly. Definitely flamboyant, Dallas is a born flirt and treats females almost as works of art themselves, with all the care and respect that art deserves.Weakness: Dallas falls easily for a pretty face, and his life philosophy often leaves him somewhat at odds with the more conservative and cautious X-Men.Bio: Dallas was born and raised in "Alameda, California, God's town, baby!" and instantly fell in love with the culture and art-based life that revolved around the San Francisco Bay area. He didn't even realize he had any sort of powers, or even anything remotely special about him, until his 7th grade year: one day in pre-Algebra, out of near homicide-inducing boredom, Dallas looked at the clock and found himself wishing that the teacher would end class early, or at least look at the clock and think that it would read something closer to the bell that signaled the end of the day. Three minutes later, after indulging in this daydream for a while, the automatized bell system throughout the school rang, and after some more toying around over the previous weeks, he realized that it was him that was messing around with the bells. He began to practice this on himself and his friends to try and measure their reaction times. His dad took him to the Xavier Institute to see how well he could master his new power, and he remains a diligent student - and, what's more, one of the school's most renowned fun-lovers - to this day.Name: Alaric "Ric" CarlisleCodename: CrackshotAge: 23Gender: MaleFaction: X-MenPower(S): Hyperkinesis: Ric's brain moves at three times the speed of a normal human's, giving him him superhuman speed and strength, along with near-perfect accuracy with weaponry and other throwable objects. He also has the power to use his brainpower to reach into the minds of others, giving him telepathic abilities and the ability to reach into the minds of others, though these skills aren't as powerful as, say, Ashlynn's.Appearance: Alaric is physically gorgeous, with pale skin, mostly neat dark brown - almost black - hair that falls to the bottom of his earlobes, sharp, well-pronounced cheekbones that ride high on his face, a forehead blissfully left untouched by any sort of age, a tall, built frame, and a clothing style that could best be described as casual disarray: though he often wears designer clothing and loves looking for a new outfit to add to his closet, he wears it as though he just woke up in it and had no idea how it got there; if he were to go to, say, Paris, he may be ridiculed slightly, but to him, this is AMURR-CA! We can wear our clothes however we dang well please!Weapons: Unlike most other mutants, due to his abilities, Alaric always carries a weapon - namely, a Ruger New Vaquero - on his person; though he can hit a target with any sort of projectile weaponry - even a pencil or a thumbtack, the feel of using a firearm is natural to him.Skills: Skilled dancer, teacher, singer, chef.Personality: Ric is casual, witty, and disarmingly charming, with a pearly white smile and a can of Dr. Pepper awaiting any student who needs a second to vent, talk, or share stories with. When he's not teaching, he can be found playing video games or organized sports with the students, and his friendliness is only outmatched by his love of the quirkiest stuff imaginable: Gone with the Wind, pickles, his Blackberry, various Italian fashion houses, and his 1958 Chevrolet Corvette are all things that he would fight to the death for.Weakness: Alaric, due to his natural hyperkinesis, often has difficulty slowing down or ceasing activity, so he can sometimes tire himself out just by being himself.Bio: Alaric is the son of Warren Worthington III, and spent his days growing up at the Academy alongside many of the other mutant's relatives. From an early age, he exhibited an uncanny display of accuracy and was an unstoppable physical dynamo; after he graduated the Academy, he immediately enrolled in the staff, and to this day he's a faithful member of Beast's team. He has great relationships with almost all the students, who see him as a sort of big brother figure, and he treats the staff - many of whom he grew up with - like family, so to say he's one of the most well-loved figures on campus wouldn't be a stretch at all. He has a small crush on Ashlynn, who he was fascinated with from childhood, but to this day, he refuses to admit it, and if a student brings it up, he spend another quarter hour in the firing range, on the receiving end of the paintball and BB guns.Name: Aleksander EnglishCodename: ArchitectAge: 19Gender: MaleFaction: Weapon-XPower(S): Aleks' power is a rare one, still clouded in mystery, and one he's not too keen on explaining: reality shifting. It's not as mind-bending as it sounds: he can create windows out of bare brick walls, staircases out of asphalt, etc etc. He uses this to his advantage as an assassin, creating miniature sniper nests out of items on rooftops, walls that curve around bullets, focusing their shot onto another target, and creating obstacles to stop, say, a retreating car or advancing group of enemies.Appearance: Aleksander is tall, lithe - think gymnast - and distinctly Russian looking. He wears dark, dark blonde hair that he keeps pushed to the side of his head to reveal his forehead; his eyes shine a deep, chocolate brown and are the only spot of color against an otherwise snowy face. He's handsome, but cold, more refined, unreachable, as though he were sculpted from stone and had the personality to boot.Weapons: Silenced Heckler and Koch HK45 for firearms combat, and a butterfly knife for close-quarters.Skills: Aleksander, being a classical thief bred in one of the largest cesspools of thievery in the world, is skilled with making a getaway and leaving no evidence behind to trace it; he's had gymnastics training, is skilled with bribes and intimidation - despite his slender frame - and he's been trained in the art of weaponry and how to use it since even before his time with Weapon-X. He's also a skilled driver and mechanic.Personality: Aleks has long since mastered the ability of "flicking off his humanity" as one would a switch: this leaves him cold, sinister, ruthless, manipulative, vain, unsympathetic, and most definitely dangerous, but deep down, he cares for a select group of people, many of whom are recurring teammates of his in Weapon-X; around these people, he is passionate, protective, and capable of an affection most wouldn't expect. Despite this, his temper, when built up, is violent, and makes the art of losing his humanity that much easier when push comes to shove. Weakness: Aleksander isn't great in warm temperatures, having spent much of his life in the cold.Bio: Aleks was born in 1994, in one of a thousand identical one-room apartments in one of a thousand identical community buildings in Murmansk, Northern Russia. His father was a policeman, as corrupt as they come, and was gunned down three days after his birth during a bribe gone wrong. From there on, Aleks was trained to be the man of the family, often committing petty thievery, assault, and other various crimes in order to provide for his mother. At age 14, he freelanced for the Russian Mafia and fell in love with the sense of hierarchy, of family, that the Mafia provided him. At 16, with his mother's permission, Aleks was one of the youngest full members of the Russian Mafia in its history, and at age 18, two years after rising in the ranks and acquiring a various number of bounties on his head, he left the Mafia with full blessings to take a job in Weapon-X. Due to his standing with the Eastern European organized crime world, and his sociopathic tendencies, he wasn't wiped of his memories, nor was he given an explosive inside his head; instead, he was given free rein and the ability to do with his free time what he pleased, as long as he remained ultimately loyal. Upon his arrival to America, to represent the way the country eventually assimilated everything in it, Aleksander changed his last name to English and still works for Weapon-X today.Name: Brooklyn Pace-CarlisleCodename: SirenAge: 19Gender: FemaleFaction: None (Prisoner of Weapon-X)Power(S): Brooklyn was born with one of the more left-field mutant abilities: when there's music playing, or someone is singing, she can read their thoughts and emotions, as well as a glimpse into the next twenty four hours of their life. This does not apply to music heard over the radio or an iPod; she actually has to see and hear the person playing in order to get a proper read.Appearance: At first glance, Brooklyn shares many of the same qualities as her half-brother Alaric: her frame is slight and tall, with most of the muscles that her body actually has poking out through an extremely thin layer of body fat. Her face possesses the same sharp, natural beauty of Alaric's, with the same thin mouth, prominent cheekbones, and ever-present perfect grin; however, her eyes are a dark, intelligent brown that shine like a just-unwrapped Hershey bar, her long black hair falls softly along her shoulders, and her skin is a more natural tan when compared to Alaric's pale complexion. She generally wears dark-colored slim or skinny fit pants and loose fitting, sleeveless black t-shirts that cut off at about her midriff, on which is tattooed the word Carlisle in cursive, flowing script underneath her belly button.Weapons: None.Skills: Musical and artistic prodigy. Trained in a couple forms of self-defense, both hand to hand and knife wise.Personality: Brooklyn is the person you go to when girl talk is in order; having been kidnapped when she was a sophomore, she is still firmly in the stage where gossiping and talking about relationships is the norm for a young girl. She's bubbly and outgoing to other prisoners of Weapon-X, and even the guards can't bear to punish her. Despite this, at her core aches a pit of solid loneliness, for though Weapon-X has a recurring cast of characters, there are very few genuine friends that she's made in her time at the complex.Weakness: Brooklyn, despite her spending years as a prisoner, has an innocent view of mutants and people in general, believing firmly that circumstances make people what they are and no one is truly evil. As well, though she doesn't bear a Weapon-X tattoo or an explosive in her head, she has an irrational fear of any Weapon-X personnel and refuses to go against them unless she feels like it's safe enough.Bio: Three years after his birth, Alaric Carlisle's mother left Warren Worthington and her son, considering her mutant boyfriend's lifestyle to be too dangerous for her to live around. After Warren's cajoling, she left Alaric in his care and then moved to the West Coast, settling down in Los Angeles and eventually taking jobs in acting and theatre. During one of these jobs, she met another actor by the name of Jeremy Pace and quickly fell for him. The two raised a child together that would eventually become Brooklyn, and from an early age, she displayed talent in all the areas that her mother and father had and then some. When her powers started manifesting, her mother decided that she couldn't lose another child the way she'd lost Alaric and kept Brooklyn's abilities hushed; nonetheless, word spreads fast in Tinseltown, and soon Brooklyn was hanging out with actors and their kids on a regular basis, attending the best schools, acting lessons on the side, yadda yadda. At the age of 15, however, on her way to hang out with Alec Baldwin's daughter, she was snatched up by a Weapon-X operative hiding out in Los Angeles. Due to her celebrity heritage and well-known face, she couldn't be used as an assassin, nor could she be mutated, so she was held instead as a ransom, a trophy that no one ever collected.Name: Jonathan Curtis "Jace" PulliamCodename: N/A Age: 172 (looks 22)Gender: MaleFaction: NonePower(S): Jace has all the powers of a normal vampire: his senses, speed, and strength are heightened to those of a trained mutant, and he's been practicing his traits long enough to have limited forms of telepathy and mental/emotional manipulation, similar to a hyperkinetic's. In addition, as a vampire, Jace has a healing factor that, depending on the extent of his injuries, can bring him into a fighting state after anywhere from minutes to hours to even a day or two. He wears a black onyx ring on his right ring finger that gives him immunity from being harmed by daylight.Appearance: Jace is, to put it frankly, captivating: he's tall, with a commanding presence, a slim, lean body with taut and hardened muscles underneath slim-fitting black clothes, and perfect, refined facial features; his cheekbones and jaw structure are sharp and enticing, helping support a gorgeous, angular face that you could put on a dollar bill. His eyes are pitch black with flecks of gold dotting the irises, like the midnight sky, framed with stars; they're framed by pale, clean-shaven skin and a long, soft shock of copper-colored hair that falls in curtains over his forehead, earlobes, and down the back of his neck.Weapons: None.Skills: Superhuman physical abilities, good at getting what he wants from people, master actor and improviser. As someone who's spent almost two centuries in warfare, Jace's skill with weapons - both firearms and melee - is honed and perfected, and he can kill you just as effectively with a Bowie knife and a blunderbuss as he could an M1911 and an Uzi.Personality: Jace, as a human, was the typical prodigal son, lazy, always slacking off, never caring for academics or the future or anything of the sort. Rather, he spent his youth gambling, dueling, womanizing, and pickpocketing Southern gentlemen up and down the South. As a vampire, these hedonistic traits have been amplified, leaving him sinister, remorseless, arrogant, and impulsive. His approach to romance and love is not much different than his view as a human: he views true love as dark, intense, practical, and strong and believes that his ideal woman should personify those qualities. Of course, just because love isn't true doesn't mean it can't be temporary, so Jace adopted promiscuity like a bible, moving through women at a mercurial pace ever since he first turned. Underneath these layers of what could generally be considered dickishness, Jace's southern charm and chivalry lays dormant, waking up under the right circumstances. If he feels a cause is worth his time, he will fight for it, even if it may not be one he entirely agrees with.Weakness: As a vampire, he can easily be killed by a wooden stake, any wooden object will immobilize Jace in pain if he's run through with it, whether it be a wooden bullet, 2x4, or even something as innocent as a pencil; he is also affected by verbena, which is a flower associated with divine and supernatural forces by ancient Chinese culture. For good reason. In addition, if he doesn't drink blood, he'll start to desiccate after a couple weeks, drying up and mummifying into a paralyzed state until he feeds again.Bio: When the Civil War broke out, the young Jace signed up for a regiment out of North Carolina and marched out into battle as soon as his state seceded, earning several brevet promotions for bravery in the field of battle, eventually ending up an unofficial Colonel for the Confederacy. All of that changed at the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee in 1862, when his forces, under the command of Albert Sydney Johnston, were quickly pushed back. After the death of Johnston, Jace tried to assume control of his beleaguered regiment and led them into a charge, but desertion and superior numbers took hold, leaving Jace dying on the field of battle with three bullets in his chest, unconscious and left to suffer whatever fate awaited secessionists in the afterlife.Something the young colonel didn't expect, however, was for a Confederate nurse to take him into her charge. While unconscious, he was fed her blood - the blood of a vampire - and then killed, leaving him to transition into a vampire as well. The nurse gave him a ring of black onyx that would protect him from the sun's rings and then disappeared, leaving him to start his new "life" by himself. He decided to stick around in the army, signing up as his own descendent every time a new, major conflict appeared. As such, Jace has fought with weaponry from the Civil War all the way into modern times. He recently returned to the United States after fighting in the Middle East for upwards of two and a half years, and upon his return, he found that the mutant issue had inflamed to new heights. After some internal debate and soulsearching, the vampire decided he'd play along with the new civil war brewing inside the borders of his country, curious as to where it would end...Name: Marlon Brando BartonCodename: Top Gun (Marlon's a Tom Cruise fan.)Age: 22Gender: MaleFaction: SHIELDPower(S): None.Appearance: Marlon has pretty much the quintessential Hollywood bad boy look straight out of the 1950s and 60s: he's tall and built, with a prominent chin, facial structure, and dark, shining blue eyes. He has dark brown hair that is pushed back, giving it a spiked look, and his clothing often consists of simple black t-shirts and either black or denim slim fit jeansWeapons: Any variety of projectile weapons, from blowguns to bows and arrows to most firearms dating from the Spanish-American War to the modern day era. For close quarters combat, he carries a furnished, hand-crafted kukri balanced perfectly to act as an extension of his arm.Skills: Marlon was born and raised to be a part of SHIELD and has the strength, speed, and durability of a gold medal Olympian. More important than that, however, is his skill with weaponry: he's lethal hand to hand, but his true power lies in his reputation as the best shot in all the US Government, able to hit a target with almost any sort of projectile weapon.Personality: Contrary to his lethal skill set, Marlon is...chill. He acts like he's borderline faded half the time, but in reality, he's just an easy-going, hilarious guy. Getting him angry is nearly impossible; the emotion just doesn't exist inside him. What does exist inside him, however, is a complete determination towards his work, and, by extension, any attempt to try and make him miss a shot will be met with all sorts of mischief later on.Weakness: Marlon, unlike most of the Avengers, has no singular special power.Bio: Marlon was born to Clint Barton, and even when he was in high school, it was clear that though he himself may not have been superhuman, something about his athleticism, determination, and persona was. He was a three sport varsity athlete, a class clown, and somehow managed to eat up every single bit of schoolwork he could find, spitting it out at the pace of a Gatling gun. Despite this, he had no direction in his life until the night of his graduation when, while throwing shot glasses up in the air and breaking them open with baseball bats on the roof a friend's house, Nick Fury appeared outta nowhere and offered him a role as one of SHIELD'S top field agents. Naturally, Marlon declined, but the next morning, while flirting with the Starbuck's girl, Nick Fury interrupted him again and this time, Marlon felt like he had no choice to accept. He's been with the Agency ever since.
Name: Dallas GreenCodename: ShowstopperAge: 18Gender: MaleFaction: X-MenPower(S): Like his prime universe counterpart, this version of Dallas was born with the ability to slow or speed up both himself and the others around him.In addition to this power, the alternate Dallas has the power to freeze a being or object in time for as long as he feels necessary, giving him a sort of ability to turn anyone he wishes into a temporal statue. Dallas is also an empath, able to detect strong feelings and emotions in those around him and often feeling them himself.Appearance: This version of Dallas is more emo-looking than his decadent, Californian counterpart, but definitely sharper and better-looking in a dangerous sense. The blonde tresses of the Dallas of this universe are gone, replaced by soft black hair that practically calls out to you to run your hands through it, and his flirty blue eyes shine like fresh born stars. His mouth is thinner, crueler; instead of the West Coast drawl that spills out of it normally, the alternate Dallas speaks in a soft Essex accent, refined and polished to the point of absolute smoothness.His clothing tastes, however, remain largely the same, sans hoodie; tattoos range across his entire body, from the words “Stay Gold” across his knuckles, to his own name in Katakana script across the inside of his right wrist, to “Love Your Friends, Die Laughing” in Arabic down his spine. Since his return to the Ultimate Universe, he got a tattoo running across his waist, reading "For Every Enemy, Love Someone:" the capital letters of each word are bolded and italicized, so as to spell out the word "FEELS."Weapons: Nada.Skills: Physically, Dallas has trained himself with his fists, but he's not any sort of martial artist; he's built for endurance, practicing parkour and free running on the grounds of the Academy regularly. Rather, Dallas's skill lies in his mind: he's one of the most brilliant creative and artistic minds the world has ever seen, able to freestyle music without a single second of hesitation, act as well as any Hollywood A-lister, bang out sketches of events and places he's seen only in passing with an uncanny precision and grace, and play five instruments.Personality: Dallas’s bohemianism is amped up to eleven in the universe of the Ultimates: he's always had a bit of an uncanny and liberal view of what constitutes art and music, but in this new form, his complete fascination with art and all of its derivatives has led to almost a nihilistic belief that a culture of those who have spent their lives creating masterpieces can truly lead an entire civilization. Like his counterpart, he suffers from music-to-color synesthesia, which means that when he hears a particular instrument or piece of music, he perceives it as a color. It allows him to pinpoint an instrument, no matter how vague or small in the distance, and it gives him an almost sibling-esque bond with music.His belief is that Homo superior is its own form of art, and that the X-Men, together, can elevate the species to the point where humans will accept them as such and ork alongside them in friendship as they create a new world together. He’s slightly more dark and cold than his other counterpart, though his sharp-as-knives wit remains intact; he’s definitely more of a playboy, adoring the chase and collection of different girlfriends with an almost unhealthy degree.Weakness: Dallas’s attitude can often lead him into trouble.Bio: Dallas was born and raised in "Alameda, California, God's town, baby!" and instantly fell in love with the culture and art-based life that revolved around the San Francisco Bay area. He didn't even realize he had any sort of powers, or even anything remotely special about him, until his 7th grade year: one day in pre-Algebra, out of near homicide-inducing boredom, Dallas looked at the clock and found himself wishing that the teacher would end class early, or at least look at the clock and think that it would read something closer to the bell that signaled the end of the day. Three minutes later, after indulging in this daydream for a while, the automatized bell system throughout the school rang, and after some more toying around over the previous weeks, he realized that it was him that was messing around with the bells. He began to practice this on himself and his friends to try and measure their reaction times.After several months of this, his father took him to the Xavier Institute, where almost immediately he fell in love with a fellow student who had arrived not long before him: Julia Phillips. Dallas began to work on an attempt to ask her out, but on the eve of the date he’d mentally set for himself, a new student named Alexander Smith swooped in and immediately won her over, causing Dallas to retreat inside himself in bitterness. His personality shifted almost overnight, and he began engaging in a series of casual relationships that he made sure would lead nowhere, keeping a mantra of “no love lost, no love found” dear to his heart. When the invasion struck his universe, Dallas was one of the X-Men at the forefront of the fight, but when the technopathic Alex died, the fight instantly began to slide downhill for the mutants. As part of a last ditch effort, Dallas volunteered to help join an effort that would pluck an Alex from another dimension, and with a few other X-Men, the team finally managed to break into another universe, parallel to their own: ours.
