Yo. I PMed Dr. Vengeance, and I be approved, so I'm putting my profile here just so it's on hand.Name: Nero SilvaCodename: SonikAge: 17Gender: MaleFaction: X-MenPower(S): Reverberating Audiomancy: Nero is capable of amplifying and controlling sound to a level high enough to produce a sonoluminescent effect even without water. His particular specialty with this power is something he refers to as "Reverbing", or the constant reflection of sound waves against each other to produce a louder sound. His common offensive use of the ability is to create constructs out of reverberating sound waves which cause damage via concussive force, though he is also capable of producing simple shockwaves and sonic blasts. Other uses of the ability include altering the tone of sound waves for visual and mental disorientation (or amusement, such as changing the sound of his voice.), echolocation to sense objects and beings around him and the structural weaknesses of objects, removing all sound in an area, and passively making him slightly less susceptible to mind/perception altering abilities (as a large portion of his perception of the world is tied to things he hears, as opposed to touch and sight.). He also has a nearly precognitive sense, as his powers increase his hearing to nearly pindrop levels, and as a result, he hears things before his other senses perceive them. Time spent heeding the sounds has made his reflexes higher than that of a normal human, lending to the near precognitive appearance.Appearance: Physically, Nero's stature is slim to average at 5'10, roughly 157 pounds. He's not particularly fit looking, save for his arms and chest and upper back which, while not at all large, are very visibly more muscular than the rest of his body. He has shaggy black hair which he constantly pushes out of his bright green eyes (to no avail.), olive skin, and bright white teeth (of which is extremely proud, showing them off with constant smiles). While not a dreamboat by any means, Nero's fairly good looking, and he's totally okay with that. Nero's choices of fashion are subject to rolling out of bed and grabbing whatever fits, but he tends to usually throw on long sleeve button down shirts layered over tye dye t-shirts, loose, flowy shorts and sandals. He has three small loop earrings in one ear and two in the other, plus a stud in his tongue. He, from time to time, wears gloves of various sorts to prevent his hands from chafing.Weapons: A boombox, a 16 gig MP3 player, and a pair of high quality, heavy bass headphones. Yep.Skills: Nero has an amazing memory, particularly for sounds, being able to recall pretty much anything he's ever heard, even if he's only heard it once. He's also very dexterous and comfortable with his upper body and arms, picking up activities fairly easily such as handstands, or sculpting. This helps tremendously with moving fast in a wheelchair. On a more hobby related note, Nero is an excellent sailor, doing a lot of boating in his spare time prior to joining the X-Men. As a result, he's also an pretty good fisherman. Finally, he's an excellent analytical mind, making him a champion gamer, you pick the genre? He'll provide the beatdown.Personality: Nero is, on the surface, a big-hearted softie, usually happy and content to just be around friends and smile, content with the knowledge that everything is working out. While this big heart is true deep down, he's a very competitive spirit, easily cycling through emotions under the surface, particularly rage and depression. He also holds grudges for quite a while, though not externally, as he tries his hardest to get away from more negative emotions, something he's struggled with for most of his life, particularly after his accident. His biggest driving force is to be the best person he can be to whoever he can, but when suitably riled up, is prone to excessive and occasionally cruel acts in an attempt to sate the amped up emotions.Weakness: Nero's biggest and most obvious weakness is that he's paraplegic, paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair. Obviously, this sincerely hampers him in a combat situation. While not particularly weak to other peoples sound based powers, he's susceptible to his own; prolonged or repeated use, especially at high intensity, thoroughly ravages his equilibrium. Finally, Nero is easily persuaded to prove himself useful, making him prone to hasty or rash decisions when he feels he's not doing anything of worth during a mission. Nero's a huge fan of medieval history, something that comes across in hos constructs, most of which are based off of medieval weaponry or armor.Bio: Nero hails from the mighty mighty Big Apple, New York City. Around the age of 10, while running across a street to meet with his mother, Nero was struck by a speeding car, permanently damaging his legs and spine, and paralyzing him from the waist down. His mother was also struck, as she attempted to save him, and fell into a coma. As a result, he drove into an almost suicidal depression, constantly raging and blaming himself for his mother's predicament. He would go on to throw himself into increasingly difficult and violent situations in an attempt to take out his rage on others, despite ending up hurt more often than not, which, unbeknownst to him, was what he wanted. Eventually, he took to remaining inside and devoting his time to video games, as it was the only way he felt that he could beat or dominate other people. This left him more empty than anything in the end, and by age 14, he found himself with nothing to live for. One day, he flew into rage and began trashing his room, but fell out of his chair. The overwhelming shame and rage caused him to cry out with fury, but he was completely unprepared for his powers to manifest at that point, a sonic boom devastating his room, causing severe damage to his family's apartment, and blowing out all of the windows in the building, the resulting damage almost killing both his father and himself, and injuring a large number of pedestrians. This event, in combination with his mother finally waking up from her coma, caused Nero to begin to crave change, not wanting anyone being hurt to be on his shoulders again if he could help it. His reunited parents, simply happy to see him no longer destroying himself, put everything they had into supporting him, even with the knowledge that he's a mutant being a factor. Eventually, at age 16, tired of having to move repeatedly to keep his family safe, Nero made his way to the Xavier Institute when he realized that he could get a firmer handle on his abilities, and ensure his family's safety from mutant hating mobs by relocating there. It is there that he now works to rein in his anger, and work on making the world a better place, things he considers only steps towards his goal: being the best person he can possibly be.I'll throw down a first post later on.
