Character Name: Cornelius Hawking
Power: Arc Energy
Bio: "Did you know there was once a young man who fell in love with an angelic princess, and that the young man's father disapproved of the angel? His disapproval stemmed from his envy, that such a graceful and perfect creature didn't choose him. The young man and the angel princess were going to leave to a new world, which enraged the father. 'How dare she steal what he mine' he spoke, and thus he confronted the angel with an evil weapon. Knowing the angel would protect his son, the father aimed for the young man... and the angel was felled. That moment played itself in the boy's mind endlessly, and... and he fled with tears streaming from his eyes, never to see his beloved angel again until his inevitable end. To this day, the young man continues to weep as he drifts from place to place forever running from the nightmare his father made."
The tears flowing unchecked from his eyes, Cornelius silently sobs as he puts the notebook down. Standing up from the chair, he briefly glances over his "home". Scorch marks and holes are everywhere, while the word "Why" and the phrase "He deserved it" is scrawled over the walls. "Just a little longer Sarah, I'll figure it out..." Electricity crackling from his right hand, he thrusts the arm forward and launches a bolt at the wall. "So very happy for the gift by the way, my sweet angel... I've been making good use of it, so don't worry about me." Wiping away his tears only to retain his sadden expression, Cornelius begins packing up his things. He has to keep moving, to avoid the madness. Being only sixteen doesn't help him in getting away, but the rundown buildings are nice enough to stay at... Why?
Why: Sarah was growing progressively more dangerous and malicious as she mutated, and in her last few mad moments was going to kill & eat Cornelius after tricking him to let down his guard. Cornelius' father, though not the best parent, was never actively malevolent and ended Sarah with a shot to the head before she could murder Cornelius. Being an antisocial teenager who had no real reason to think his father truly cared, stood still in silence for several minutes. After several worrying prompts from his father, Cornelius went absolutely berserk and blasted his father. Once done beating his father's corpse, he looked back at Sarah and just cried. Ever since he's been mentally re-imagining his past and moving endlessly, though seems like a typical stoic when he normally confronts people.
Hmm... Before I write the bio, I would like to know some things. First, do all the Powers function strictly as listed (minus the hidden effects) or can they be creatively utilized in different ways? Like using Arc Energy to perform an Exo Spark like attack or coating yourself in Poison so enemies can't physically touch you. Second, do we only grow stronger by getting more viruses or do we progressively get stronger over time? I'm kind of fond of the making the powers grow stronger by using them, but eh. Third, if a female Infected continuously grows more infected while pregnant what happens to the child? In addition to that, what happens if a Neo and an Infected have a child?
Besides that, how tough is the Poison and Paralysis substances? Would wrapping something in Paralysis webs be an effective offense modifier, or do the webs have to completely entangle someone to work? In fact, how sticky are they? Cause I kind of do want to see an Infected swinging around like Spider-Man. Though do we only get one Power altogether, or do we also get a Passive?
