Name: Kunnia "Nia" Shoris
Appearance: 5'10, willowy and slender. When her powers activated, a great deal of the color in her appearance seemed to drain away, as if lowering her noticeability. This left her with dark grey hair, slate grey eyes and pale white skin. She tens to prefer plain, loose clothing and a hat or cap of some sort. Her choice in bright lipsticks is the only real splash of color, even that seeming to dull merely by being on her person.
Personality: Nia is a quiet, curt sort. Since not many people take notice of her despite her height and without the use of her powers, she hasn't had many chances to interact with others, leaving her social skills a bit lacking. She tends to prefer the company of animals over humans, and her leisure activities include sleep and drawing. An outdoorsy type, she isn't exactly an athlete, but certainly likes outdoor activities. Her opinions of people are often formed within the first minute of meeting them, and can be difficult to undo. A person who relies on her instincts a great deal, if her gut warns her against something, she listens. Nia also has a deep seated weakness for cute, soft things, and happens to be in possession of a rather large collection of stuffed animals.
Song: Shannon Saunders- Atlas
Power: Derived from the lyrics "My eyes see you, I see you but you don't see me". She has the ability to turn away people's gazes, and become all but invisible while still remaining in the visible spectrum. To go unnoticed or acknowledged as it were.
Relatives: Mother and fraternal twin younger siblings.
She owns a hedgehog named Abbot Humble, after a character from one of her favorite Redwall books.
Nia bakes. Often and well.

Name: Jocelyn Roberts
Personality: Jocelyn is rather cocky the majority of the time. She knows what she wants, she knows what she's comfortable with, and she does whatever she wants. She acts like this partly because she's confident in her own powers, and she isn't afraid of anyone or anything, and she's willing to fight to get what she wants. If you can get through her stubbornness and her brash attitude, she can actually be rather sweet and friendly, and she can be an excellent, very reliable friend for those she's close to. She hates being confined and told what to do, so she has a habit of fighting against the teachers and guards of the Academy if they try to make her do something she isn't interested in at the moment.
Song: Ride the Lightning by Metallica
Power(Must relate to song): Can control electricity, be it lightning, or the electrical currents that go through power lines or through buildings. Can't control too much at one time, or she runs the risk of "short circuiting" and passing out due to the overload of electricity coursing through her
*Relatives(If in RP): Ezekiel (Brother)
*Other: Was born in America, but she's moved a lot of times over the years due to her Father's work
Name: Angelica Lovelace
Personality: Externally, Angelica is the perfect gifted child. Her parents always taught her to be kind and have perfect manners. Internally, her heart is pure ice. She is conceded, prissy, and a straight up bitch. Pure wickedness. Sure, in front of teachers and other adults, she acts like an angel, but her devil horns are holding up that halo. She will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Call her ruthless, but she prefers ambitious.
Song: Wires by The Neighborhood
Power: She can physically manipulate people like a marionette. It doesn’t work on mentally stable people, but if she can get to someone emotionally, they can be putty in her hands.

Name: Ezekiel Williams
Personality: Ezekiel is rather calm, laid back, and "chill" by most people's standards. He doesn't get riled up easily, he prefers to get along with people instead of fighting, and he prefers to talk things out before any violence occurs. He is exceptionally protective and possessive when it comes to his friends however, and if someone harms someone he views as a friend, a whole new side to Ezekiel gets brought to the surface, and he can be QUITE nasty if he is pushed far enough. If you don't put his friends in danger, and you don't really REALLY push him, you could have an excellent friend in Ezekiel, but if you do, you'll have a very bad time of it.
Song: "The Phoenix" by Fallout Boy
Power: Ezekiel has some limited powers that are reminiscent of a legendary Phoenix. He is able to manifest and control fire. He is also able to use his fire to heal himself, coating himself in fire and emerging unscathed, much like the rebirth of a phoenix in legend. He can't use this power to help or heal anyone else as they would merely be burned by the fire, and he can't can't use his fire if he's too wet.
*Relatives(If in RP): Jocelyn
Other: Debating giving him fire wings. Will edit in the future, possibly
illirica wrote:Name: Claire Vanserra
Appearance: Brown eyes, brown hair worn in two braids down her back, tied together at the ends. She usually wears a collared shirt and jumper (pinafore if you're of the British persuasion), and tends to look more like 12 than 14. It's possible she cultivates that look deliberately, or it's possible that no one told her she doesn't need to dress like a child any more.
Personality: She isn't precisely sane. Sometimes she is calm, languid, and unconcerned to the point where people wonder if she's drugged. Other times, her anger gets the better of her.
Song: Moonlight Sonata (Piano Sonata No. 14), Ludwig von Beethoven
Powers: She controls ambient light, able to brighten or darken a room. Unfortunately, since her song has no lyrics, she is mute while using her powers and cannot speak.
Bio: In a school full of experiments, Claire is an experiment one step further. In her specific case, the researchers wanted to know what would happen if a child were exposed repeatedly to a song that was purely instrumental. Results were somewhat inconclusive, as it's difficult to tell whether her muteness while using powers is a side effect of the lack of lyrics, or whether that's just one of the weaknesses that seem to get thrown into the mix.
Her parents were some of the researchers in the Musical Enhancement Studies, and truly believed that they were creating the next step for humanity. As such, they saw it as only beneficial to expose their own children as well. Claire's older sister was an experimental subject as well, but some years ago the powers she developed got the better of her and she was killed. The family was broken by the death, and Claire's mother committed suicide only a few weeks later. Left with nothing but his younger daughter and his work, Claire's father redoubled his efforts on her behalf, exposing her to her song constantly, even going so far as to wake her every hour to make her listen to it. Grieving and sleep-deprived, Claire lashed out with the full force of her anger and her abilities, calling enough light to blind her father and sear most of his face beyond recognition. The saga was hushed up, and Claire was deposited at GATES Academy with the most firm instructions that she was expected to stay there.
Name: Keith Wilson
Personality: Keith actually does not give one singular shit. If they are going to force him to live here, they play by his rules and his alone. Like he would ever pay attention to these asshats anyway. Regardless of his less than stellar reputation, he’s really nice. No, really. Just not to the douche fucks keeping him prisoner here. Maybe that’s why his profile paints him like the actual antichrist. He doesn’t take it personally, he knows he’s a prick.
For the most part, the other students seem to like Keith. Maybe they are just being nice, but Keith likes to think all people act the way they feel just like he does. He’s very honest with everyone except himself. He doesn’t like to admit that he has a problem, rather it be his drug use or eating disorder. He acts like he has it all under control. He doesn’t.
Keith really does care what people think about him. He wants the staff to think he’s a force to be reckoned with, while he wants the other students to think he’s a good person. These can often conflict. Sometimes the staff will catch him being sweet to another student, or a student will catch him physically fighting staff. He tries to manage this as easily as possible, but it’s hard. He really wants people to like him, but the staff fucks that up frequently.
Keith misses being outside of the school. He misses his friends. Thank fuck for the internet. The most he can get outside is cracking a window. They would kill him before letting him outside. Last time he left ended in a two week long man hunt. He could have lasted longer, but he didn’t bring enough money with him. Leave it to Keith to spend all his money on drugs before making an escape. They found him sitting in his bed like he never left.
Song: Weak AJR
Power: Keith can make it impossible for someone to say no to something. Of course, it can’t be something they would never do, it needs to be an option in their brain, at least a little bit.
Name: Marie Jacobs
Personality: Marie is the absolute definition of americas sweetheart. Her generous, do-no-wrong persona just attracts people to her. She is energetic and curious as she feels the need to explore the world around her. She can be rather headstrong at times, especially when it comes to competition. She is rather naïve, often believing the best of people.
Song: Quiet- Lights
Power: Marie can erase a small amount of time from people’s minds. The more time, the more energy it takes. It’s worth it for a do over.
Name: Finnegan McNamara
Personality: Finn is a troublesome boy, always getting in trouble for “just having fun.” He’s just trying to live life to the fullest. Unfortunately, that means he will find any alternative to going to class, meaning he’s not too bright, at least when it comes to book smarts. Street smarts are a completely different story.
Finn tends to look on the bright side of things. Even when personal tragedies come, he’s always smiling. He’s the one making people laugh, even if it’s not the right time. His jokes are bad, but he’s doing his best. He would do almost anything to help someone else, even completely disregarding his own safety.
Finn also has smaller personality points like his love for dance. He’s not usually public with that part of his life though. He usually gets called gay far too often. Not to say it isn’t true, but he’s far too busy trying to have a good time to think about anything to do with sexuality right now. Another part is his volunteer work at the local hospital. He normally works in the children’s department, he loved it when their eyes lit up as he’d read them stories.
Song: Guillotine- Jon Bellion
Power: When injured, Finn’s body lets out flame through the wound that pulses out rhythmically. Given how everyone else can use their power to do something, he thinks this shouldn’t be all he can do, but so far, it’s all he’s got.
Azra wrote:Name: Alezra "Azra" Irawth
Appearance: white hair with yellow eyes her clothing suggests she came from a village more likely then a city though she'd rather not talk about it. For obvious reasons the school doesn't allow her to walk around with weapons she can often be found with additional scissors or pens however on her person. She is about five foot six with an athletic build but doesn't seem to have much of a weight to her or at least nothing nearby what it should be.
Personality: Abrasive and usually choosing a confrontational or flighty response to people and responsibilities. She tried to hide her abilities for roughly over a year she couldn't keep it bottled away forever though. Which led her to G.A.T.E.S
Song: Shalott by Emilie Autumn
Power: "And the wind, And the wind I know it's cold, I've been waiting, For the day I will surely die, And it's here" Azra has become able to be not unlike a ghost at times. She is able to make her and items upon her become incorporeal. Passing through matter and being able to look through. Smaller aspects about this allow her to be moved by winds essentially carried upon a breeze. Her body lighter and a rather cold touch about her as if she's passed on.
Relatives: claims to have an aunt New York rest are said to be dead
Other: swords were not included with what she packed much to her dismay
FakeSkrillex wrote:Name: Eli Warner (aka Twitch)
Personality: While Eli seems like he's built to be a very outgoing person he's actually quite the opposite. Eli mainly keeps to himself, he knows the risks that he puts other people in if he's near them when he loses control of his powers. He spends most of his time training in many forms of Mixed Martial Arts. Including Boxing, Muay Thai, and Jiu Jitsu. His power is a curse to him but he knows that he must do his best to hone his combat skills if he ever wants to survive in this world.
Song(I would prefer not to have repeats): My Name Is - Eminem
Power(Must relate to song): Split Mind: Inside Eli lives an almost evil entity, as can be seen in the fragmented and scatter brained lines of My Name Is. This entity is fighting for control over Eli's body, and it sometimes succeeds, causing Eli to lose control and having Twitch take over instead. When Eli harnesses the power of this entity he gains superhuman speed, strength, agility, and durability (think less Super Man more Captain America)
Appearance: The thing about Eli is that he has two different colored eyes, one of them is a pure bright blue and the other is a very dark shade of brown

Name: Raelynn “Rae” Devanna
Appearance: Raelynn is a smaller statured person, her hair is usually tousled from movement, but her smile is electrically infectious.
Personality: Rae could be described by many words. Words like eccentric, outgoing and carefree could pop into many people’s minds; but also words like obnoxious, annoying, and unappreciative could appear. This is because the girl has a loud and unapologetic personality. You either think she has a great attitude, or that she’s a piece of trash.
She doesn’t really care about standards of what people have to say about her. She wears what she wants, she speaks her mind when she believes it’s right and she focuses on the things in life that makes everything she does fun. Thrills and new experiences excite her. Raelynn loves to dance, scream-sing, socialize, and not give a shit at all! She’s actually pretty smart, but her laziness and hatred of authority stops her from showing it. The student doesn’t let anything get in the way of what she wants to do, and takes on adventure because it interests her.
Song: COPYCAT by Billie Eilish
Power: Raelynn has the ability of imitation, which means she can ‘copy’ the traits of other people. She must be touching a person to imitate their traits such as hair color, voice, and facial appearance. The teenager has never tried to copy someone’s entire body, because she’s too lazy to use that much energy.
She’s also able to ‘copy’ objects and information by touching it, and immediately creating a duplicate. This can come in handy for objects like books and pencils, but things like apples and water cannot be fully duplicated. Edible items can be consumed or drank, but will not give the nutrients or caloric affect like real food. This means that Rae could duplicate an apple and eat it. It would taste good, but it would not help with her hunger or health.
Other: Raelynn loves to play loud music. Whether it’s through a speaker, blasting on a guitar, or booming through a drumset, she loves it. Her roommates either hate her or love her.
Mercy is 5'4 tall.
Mercy is quiet and friendly most of the time, a girl of few words. Only when on her bad side her sadistic side - which has arisen thanks to the song - comes out to play, wanting to scar you for life with the horrible thoughts that are trapped in her head. Otherwise she is very open and nice if you get to know her better. She feels bad for the many people she has driven to insanity by accident, and often believes she is a monster because of it.
Mind Games - Sickick
Mercy has the ability to invade somebody else’s mind, playing with it, creating hallucinations that can range from good to terrifying. For example, she can create hallucinations in her victims’ minds, triggering their fears. Mercy had often done so by accident, as she doesn’t know how to fully control her powers yet. It only works if the victim is awake. She is unable to control minds.
Mercy actually quite enjoys singing and can often be found humming or singing her song.
