Name: Claire Vanserra

Age: 14

Gender: F

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.

Quick question. We don't need to BE listening to the song in order for us to use our powers, do we? Like.... if Ezekiel isn't listening to Phoenix by Fallout Boy, he still has his powers over fire, right?

Also found a photo that makes me rather concerned for Jocelyn's future.

Nah, I'm kidding. They apparently treat the students like prisoners and Jocelyn has had a very tough past. They might keep her under lock and key more literally than most.

Jocelyn is a free spirit, and she wants what she wants. Being confined as a glorified prisoner in the academy is NOT what she wants. They would probably need to REALLY work to keep her there and to ensure she doesn't attack the guards. She'll be nice enough to the students if they are friendly with her and are on her good side, but glorified jail guards? Nah, she'll be REAL nasty towards them as often as possible.

I kinda feel like Jay will be the MOST likely to try to push everyone's buttons.

All accepted, they don’t need to listen to the music to use their powers
