Collateral ( A Superhero RP with Consequences)


But We Were Happy
After the destruction of multiple cities within multiple different regions of the world( Notable examples include New York, London, Beijing,Cairo, Rio De Janeiro and Sydney along with a research lab on the frozen continent), the world has had enough. One thing was true. There was too MUCH property damage from these super-powered showdowns between heroes and villains and after much discussion, a new law was put into place. Called by the masses as Collateral, it was a law that required all beings with powers, regardless of their wealth, power or status to be held accountable for any damages, may they be property, physical or emotional.

That was twenty years ago. It's 2019 now and still very much a law of all lands. For this RP, you may play as a character with powers ( may they originate from supernatural, science or otherwise) or a villain and a civilian ( This being has no powers, they are essentially human). ( You must have at least one hero/ villain and one civilian as these beings will be important). Though focusing on the superhero aspect, if your character finishes with any damages to any person, place or object, well, it will be settled with court.

After all, there's always Collateral to pay.

Listed below is the two types of character sheets. One for your hero and one for your civilian.

Matthew stands at 6'3 inches tall and is of an lanky build. He usually wears a white t-shirt under his green leather jacket and jeans. He also has a watch that never seems to have the right time. He usually wears sneakers as well.
Hero/ Villain Appearance: As a hero, Matthew wears a green suit that resembles something similar to the flash though slightly less gaudy looking. He also has a mask he wears on his face since the suit doesn't have a hoodie.

Occupation : College Student
Personality: After living away from his dad and his horrible habits of giving constant pressure to be perfect, Matthew is an extremely compassionate and honest person. He is friendly and tries to find the answer that will hurt the least people. Having lived with his mother, most of his horrible traits has mellowed down, but he still has a perchance for sarcasm and flirting, though never disrespectfully or mockingly anymore.
Weakness(ONE FOR EACH Non-natural ABILITY( Abilities that cannot be typically used by normal humans /POWER): Matthew's speed can be slowed down and even stopped by magic, his super strength and energy manipulation both require deep concentration to keep them from going. He can be killed and unlike his father, he can't regenerate, so he is incredibly human. Consumes a lot of energy, so needs a constant food source
Species : ( If they are not human): Meta-Human
Powers: Matthew's main ability has and always will be superfast speed. It was the first power he got and he still uses it in daily. He can use it to travel great distances and across water. However, despite how hard he tries, he can't use it to time travel or phase through objects. He also has super strength allowing his speedy punches to be faster, but he has to concentrate while he uses it. Like his dad, he has energy manipulation, but he was never formerly trained and can't do much without more training.
Abilities/ skills: Lock-picking, flirting, good at archery, good at boxing.
History: *Matthew locks a box with papers, walks over to a hole, digs it quickly, reburies it* Hell to the No. ( Unknown)
Family: Catherine Harris ( Mother), Anthony Harris ( Missing twin brother), Anthony Carter ( Clone of his missing brother), Matthew Harris 2.0 ( Dead clone of him), Matthew Harris 1.0 ( Clone of him), Jonas Harris ( C~~ERROR~~Brother)
Extra: His superhero name comes from the fact that he is extremely lanky and twig like due to his constant use of his superfast speed making it hard for him to gain either weight or muscle. He's pansexual.

Chooser of the Slain
Civilian Name: Valerie Whelan

Nickname: Val
Hero name: Seid
Age: 22
Appearance: ( Details the photos do not include/ scars/ height, weight,etc.)
Val stands at 5' 3", just an inch shy of average height. In fact, everything about it is just a point or two away from average; weight, body build, shoe size, etc. She prefers to dress comfortably but nice, generally a t-shirt and jacket paired with boots.
Hero/ Villain Appearance:

Her hair is generally tied back. She doesn't worry too much about masks due to her powers. (See powers)
Collateral gathered before start of RP: $287, 830 - still paying off.
Occupation : Free-lance journalist; not doing so hot. Works part time as a waitress.
Personality: Val is just a girl trying to get by. She's determined, doing everything in her power to finish whatever task she's greeted with. As an introvert, she prefers to keep to herself, but she does realize that life requires her to speak to others. She'll do her best to stay engaged with whoever she's talking to. She's fairly level headed, not easily upset - at least, not on the outside.
Weakness(ONE FOR EACH Non-natural ABILITY( Abilities that cannot be typically used by normal humans /POWER): Val's powers take a lot out of her. It takes a large amount of concentration, and she's often rendered weak after fights if she's not careful. Her powers do allow her a small amount of telepathy, and when her powers are in use, she is more vulnerable to attacks through one's mind. She's human, though, and can be killed.
Powers: Illusions. The bigger they are, or the more real they feel, the more energy it takes from her. There is a bit of telepathy that can come from her powers, allowing her to enter one's mind and see their biggest fear, perhaps to make it come to life.
When in combat, she uses illusions to either warp her face and voice, or cast a shadow to hide her identity.
Abilities/ skills: Hand-to-hand combat, usually with a small, blunt weapon, like batons. She can't always use her powers.
Mechanics. Partially. Her dad worked as a mechanic and taught her just enough about vehicles. She can't fix engines like an expert, but she's better at...well, let's just say, she's great at hotwiring cars.
Some minor communication skills.
History: Classified.
Family: Marc Whelan (Father; alive), Ami Whelan (Mother; in the hospital), Nora Whelan (older sister; currently working overseas), Natalie Whelan (younger sister; freshman in highschool)
Extra: Seid is Norse for magic. (Couldn't find any cool words meaning illusion even in other language!)

Civilian Name: Amelia Hawke

Nickname: Milly, Hawk
Age: 28
Faceclaim: Kiera Knightley

Milly stands at 5' 11", and she's proud of it. She does everything to accentuate that fact, often wearing heels to make her appear even taller. She dresses professionally, and often layers jewelry.
Collateral cases involved before start of RP: 3
Occupation : Journalist/Reporter
Personality: Milly is a no nonsense woman. She's down to earth, sometimes a little cold, and persistent. She's considered good at her job. However, she can be rather snippy. It doesn't take much to make her angry. For whatever reason, she's taken an interest in the Collateral cases. It's her favorite topic to talk about.
Abilities/ skills: Communication skills.
Does know the gist of using a gun, but she's no expert. She just keeps one in self defense.
Pickpocketing. She's snuck her way into numerous buildings to get 'an exclusive inside view'. It's a wonder she hasn't been caught.
History: Milly has always loved drama and stories from a young age, so it was no surprise to her parents when she majored in communications and quickly landed herself a job. She's been a journalist for 5 years, and a reporter for 3.
Family: Gunter Hawke (father; deceased), Leyla Williams-Hawke (mother; alive), Andrew Leroy (step-father)
Extra: N/A
