-Name-
Rory Preston

-Hero Name-
The Monkey King

-Age-
19

-Gender-
Male

-Personality-
An ego formed from steel, Rory holds himself above nearly everything, quite literally placing himself on high platforms to look down on those around him. His arrogance gets him, and by association anyone around him, in more trouble than needed. He has no sense of danger, no self-control, and has a knack for putting himself up against higher forces. His explosive temper adds insult to injury, he’s his own man and attempts to boss him around are met with refusal, expecting Rory to be a team player is asking for disappointment.

-Powers-
The direct child, or possibly a lingering piece, of Sun Wukong, The Monkey King. Rory boasts, and proudly boasts, a supreme body condition. Unfathomable strength and durability, unmatchable speed and dexterity, limitless endurance, and acute senses.

Rory has also acquired a small percentage of Sun Wukong’s artillery and weapons.

Ruyi Jingu
Its base weight may be 8 tons, which Rory can wield casually, but Ruyi Jingu’s length, girth, weight, and even location can be controlled by Rory at will. His touch is not required to control the rod’s state, a surprising transcendence from his father. However, controlling Ruyi’s properties is physically taxing to Rory.

Kinto-Un
A massive thundercloud that Rory can be seen using as transportation. In battle he can use the cloud for minor weather control, creating powerful winds, thick rain, blinding fog, and summoning lightning strikes. Kinto-Un is a sentient being that comes to Rory’s beckoning call, and like a regular cloud, can be dispersed with a strong enough force.

Icy Breath
Rory is capable of releasing a mystic breath from his throat, cold enough to temporarily encase his foes in ice to halt them in place.

-Bio-
On his last leg, with his own gourd pointed directly at him, Sun Wukong saw his defeat was imminent. There was no escaping that fate, but that didn’t mean his tale needed to end here. Before the gourd could open, Sun Wukong broke off the tip of his index finger, rolled it into a ball of esoteric energy, and plucked it away in time for it to avoid being trapped in the gourd with him. Its goal was simple enough, imbed itself into the womb of a healthy woman, and hope that the child’s birth would carry no complications.
With no hard requirements, Sun Wukong’s essence targeted the first healthy woman it sensed.
Tina Alvone, a young woman living on her own after being kicked out, suddenly falling pregnant out of the blue, her luck couldn’t have gotten any worse. Little Rory was born on December 12th, a remarkable boy, bustling with talent and… Boundless energy. By five months the bastard was not only walking but practically bouncing himself off the walls. At two he was flipping, cartwheeling and hanging upside down on the shower curtain. At five he was wrestling the neighborhood stray dogs and winning at that. Tina could tell, it was obvious, Rory was far from normal. What 5 year old casually breaks a pit bull’s teeth? Though the extent of his abnormalities had yet to be recognized.
His hero complex came young and carried a hint of selfishness. Attention, fame, notoriety? Nobility certainly wasn’t his reason for his want to become a hero. His ambition only grew when a thunder cloud carrying a golden staff came to his home. A sense of familiarity, these gifts marked the beginning of Rory’s attempts to gain fame using justice.

The Heroes have vanished. Sorry this took so long to get around to; I hope you'll still have me. Let me know if you need anything changed!

CS TEMPLATE:

Character Sheet:

Name:
Scarlett Cooke

Hero Name:
Morph

Age:
Sixteen years old.

Gender:
Female.

Personality:
Scarlett is commonly seen as a brave and righteous hero with an indomitable sense of justice and responsibility. There are times when her sense of responsibility can be almost overbearing. This combined with her strong moral compass in the face of adversity and sharp wit makes her a unique opponent to some and ally to others.

One of Scarlett's most prominent traits is her optimism and kindness. In and out of the suit, she is seen doing the smallest acts of kindness simply due to the way she was raised. This can range from something as menial as helping someone pick up their fallen groceries or putting herself in harm's way to get innocent civilians to safety. She also looks on the bright side of most situations, whether that means cracking a joke or spreading some positive words.

Behind this supportive facade, however, is a wounded soul that has gone through a considerable amount of suffering for a sixteen year old. While Morph is in combat, people do get hurt and sometimes even blame her for it, leaving her depressed for having failed in her responsibility. Death in particular is difficult for Scarlett to reconcile with, leading her to do normal teenage things and close herself off, becoming something short of a recluse.

Scarlett is also traditionally a loner, but not by choice. Due to her being a budding undiscovered hero, Scarlett hasn't found many other heroes willing to work with her. However, she eagerly and patiently awaits the arrival of the opportunity.

Morph is also a strong willed hero: whatever obstacles come her way and push her down, she always gets back up and fights five times as hard as before. Her indomitable will and don't-give up-attitude contribute to her tolerance of bigger transformations she may encounter. But despite being strong-willed and bubbly, Scarlett is rather naive, and is often her downfall in certain situations.

Powers:
Scarlett can shapeshift her form, transforming and reshaping herself down to her genetic and cellular structure. She can impersonate others or enhance her own body for combat by turning into animals, other people, or monsters, so long as she has seen a visual representation of it. As of yet, Scarlett hasn't found anything impossible to transform into, though as an animal gets larger than a gorilla or smaller than a dog, the process becomes more painful. The only side effects that she has noticed so far are small things that take more time to change. For example, after turning into a cat and back into herself, her eyes may still look like a cat's for a few moments longer before reverting to their normal state.

Along with this, Scarlett can change her vocal cords to sound like specific creatures and people without having to actually transform into them. It essentially works by her shapeshifting and stopping before her looks change. It is a practice she is trying to perfect, but one she has nonetheless.

Scarlett has not found a time limit as to how long she can stay in a single form yet, but has discovered other disadvantages to her ability. Being unconscious/asleep will cause her to revert back to her original form. It also takes time to go back to her natural self, meaning she needs a secluded spot. Finally, Scarlett sometimes does not transform at will sometimes. Though it's uncommon, her powers will cause her to involuntarily morph into some random person, animal, or monster, even if she is not consciously thinking about said creature.

Bio:
Scarlett was born with a rare degenerative disease. Most (if not all) of her early life was moving into one hospital and staying through several painful procedures before transferring to what was supposed to be a better facility. The Cooke parents were always exhausted from staying at the side of their sick little girl, but they managed to make the most out of the dire situation. Frail and not getting any better, Scarlett herself seemed to be losing hope more than her parents were despite being so young. Her red curls were completely gone and her skin was papery white and sickly from the chemotherapy. Not even her baby brother, Holden, could make her smile at some points.

It wasn't until she reached CLASSIFIED when progress was finally shown at all and hope flooded Scarlett's mind. The scientists there introduced an experiment that had only worked on one other person, a boy not much older than Scarlett. The scientists injected the patient with DNA from a mixture of animals to help overcome the mysterious disease in Scarlett's body. Eager to see their eldest daughter get better, the Cookes agreed to submit her to the experiment. It worked far better than they ever hoped it would, and in a matter of months and some occasional visits after being released from the hospital, Scarlett seemed to be a normal child.

But the experiment worked far better than the Cookes could have expected. Scarlett shared a room with Holden at home when he was a bit older. One night, a burglar broke into the home with a loud crash. Scared to death, Scarlett woke up immediately and rushed over to four year old Holden, holding him tightly in her arms. Holden let out a soft gasp and Scarlett found herself wrapped in his arms in the form of a tabby cat. With the older sister's fear of having to be admitted to the hospital yet again, she and Holden kept the experience a secret. It eventually began to entertain them, playing games and seeing what Scarlett could shapeshift into.

But the secret didn't stay between the duo for long. Several years after the discovery of Scarlett's powers, she came across the knowledge that she was not the only one out there with strange abilities. There were a bunch of other people with powers far more powerful than her own, doing things that she could only dream of doing. They were both heroes and villains, something that was straight out of one of the many comic books she would read during her time at the hospital getting treated. Something about the idea called to her strongly, and she began to work on becoming a hero. Scarlett gathered up all of the money she could, whether it was from birthdays, grandma, or random change on the ground, and began to buy items to make her costume.

Initially, it started off as a hoodie with a piece of cloth tied around her head. Scarlett would carefully assist civilians any way possible, whether it was by providing directions to the nearest bakery or pulling them out of danger. It took practice, but she started to settle in with the routine. She would stay out late into the night and risk a lack of sleep, but it became a passion that she didn't mind doing. Now Scarlett has some light armor to protect herself from things like falling and some light punches, should she find herself out of her animal form, and has been scouring the city for two years. People who have come in contact with her have dubbed her as "Morph", and it's a name she has grown to love.

Appearance:
Image

For someone that wants to conceal her identity and remain inconspicuous, Scarlett can clearly stand out in a crowd. Her short red curls and uniquely lean stature make her someone that attracts the attention of passersby when she would much rather not have it. She stands at a remarkable five feet - six inches and always has a lighthearted (sometimes interpreted as mischievous) look on her face accented by cool blue eyes.
Superhero Appearance:
Due to the fact that constant funding isn't exactly a luxury she can afford, Scarlett's uniform consists of little creative design and armor. She dons black motorcycle armor around her torso with red lining around the plates and black finger-less motorcycle gloves to accompany it. A knockoff replica of a B-3 sheepskin bomber jacket tops off the rest. Scarlett is using black running pants until she can find some proper padded pants to use for protection. Completing the outfit is a pair of black Converse that aren't the best for getting around, but they're all she has at the moment.

Extra:
Not that I can think of.
To quote Hamlet Act III, Scene iii, Line 87..."no."
