Is there room for a character with the ability to bring forth/display negative emotions on others? Not manipulate them, but more drag them from the back of the mind or take her own negative emotions and push them onto someone else? Or is there already someone like that/too op?

That is perfectly fine, but is someone absolutely can’t be positive in that moment, it might not work

Oh yeah they can fight through it and be positive by pushing the negative emotion away again, but it works best if said person's negativity is stronger than the positivity

I misread and thought it was to make people positive (which is way more wholesome tbh) but the idea works just the other way so it’s still fine

Name:
Dakota Hartly

Gender:
Female

Age:
16

Appearance:
Dakota is a bit on the smaller side, only standing at about 5'4" with a smaller but thicker frame. Her hair is cut off just above the shoulder, and is a dark shade of red, almost black in certain lights. She has a bit of a 'cherub' face, with round doe eyes that are a deep shade of brown. Dakota's skin is very pale and cold to the touch, and she often has red marks on her hands where the slightest pressure was put on her porcelain skin. She often wears simplistic clothing in dark colors, or opts to just wear a slightly over-sized sweatshirt and some simple pants.

Personality:
Despite her power being more on the negative side, Dakota presents as a fairly upbeat gal. She's very positive, as it's almost imperative that she is to ensure she doesn't accidentally use her power. She's known to try her best to make sure others are positive, no matter what; Even if that means taking on their emotional burdens. Dakota seems to care very little for herself, and often ends up being exhausted and starving/dehydrated from her constant running about for others. At first glance, these actions can be seen as almost 'push-over' material, but in fact it's quite the opposite. Dakota knows how to say no, and she isn't opposed to it, but more often then not she can't stand to see others emotionally unwell.

Dakota can get frighteningly depressive, to the point where she refuses to even get out of bed. This leads to bouts of agitation as well, where she lashes out at anyone who pisses her off during these episodes; Which is just about everyone. She hides her emotions very well, despite her powers centering around them, but occasionally they peek through and present multiple problems that Dakota can't handle by herself. She's very unwilling to accept help from others, which often winds up in her losing herself further into the emotional episodes until someone forces their way in to help her. She's stubborn, and rarely allows others to get very close to her on a personal level, though she often finds herself making more friends than she wants.

Despite her mood disorder and the occasional violent downswings, Dakota is a fairly sweet girl. She loves to talk to others, and is considered easy to interact with. She does not like sharing much though, and changes subjects if people question her power and how it's used. Dakota enjoys having friends, though she dislikes having anybody get too close to her, as she fears she could harm them emotionally. She also dislikes physical contact, though she isn't afraid to give a friend a hug/be hugged by someone she likes. Overall she's an absolute sweetheart, but the mental blockades she's put up often don't let many people see that friendly and genuinely happy side of her.


Song:
Soda- Nothing but Thieves

Power:
Stemming from the lyrics, "Because I try to be happy - But then I forget - They tell me I need to chill, man - It's all in your head", Dakota has the ability to draw forth the negative emotions a person has. Whether it be anger, sadness, humiliation or even paranoia; Dakota Can make it spotlight in your brain, causing it to take over and be the prominent emotion in a person. This can be overridden if the person is positive enough to fight it back, and it works best if someone is hiding their negativity. If Dakota's own negative emotions are strong enough, she can project them onto others by touching them, causing the emotion to be shared, or even vice versa where she takes the person's negative emotions for her own. The use of her power has resulted in her always being cold to the touch, and the constant exchange of negative emotions can take a serious mental toll on her after prolonged use.

Relatives:

Other:
-Dakota has glasses, but only uses them during long periods of reading.
