Yancy Low *Ixion*

Post by yancylow » Mon Oct 30, 2017 12:34 am

SL NAME (Display Name and Screen Name): Yancy Low

HERO/VILLAIN NAME: Ixion

CHARACTER TYPE (Hero, villain, or citizen?):
Hero (although pro Meta)
CIVILIAN/ALTER EGO NAME:
Yancy
AGE (all characters must be at least 18):
33
CHARACTER'S BACKSTORY :

Yancy was born with a neuromuscular disease which confined him to a wheelchair. His parents, unable to deal with the burdens, placed him in a group home when he was only three years old. He grew up there and then in adopted homes. When he was 13, Yancy's foster father attempted to molest him. Yancy snapped and his mutant powers erupted like a volcano, frying his father alive from the inside out.

Police were notified and arrested Yancy, placing him in an institution until he was 18. At 18, he was released onto the streets.

Yancy lived as a homeless man in the sewers, training himself to use his powers, until -- at 25 -- his life took an unexpected turn. A very nice passerby gave Yancy food and a business card. He told Yancy to meet him the next day.

The next day was Yancy's first day as a stockbroker... now, at 31, a multi millionaire Yancy is rescued by Him. He awoke with the assigned role of a Professor at C.U.M. (because of his background). His wealth also established him in a quite comfortable place in society. He has excelled at the job for the past two years; however, behind the scenes and out of the public eye, Yancy has started to take outcast metahumans under his care. He has even accepted non human metas (Aliens).



POWERS: List your character's powers, and describe the limits of the powers (i.e. Super strength: hits with 10 tons maximum blunt force). If you need ideas, go to the following website: http://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/List ... _Abilities
Super Powers:
Pyrokinesis - can create, shape and manipulate fire, the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products, flame being the visible portion of the fire. Depending on the substances alight, and any impurities outside, the color of the flame and the fire's intensity will be different.
Noteworthy Applications: Burn and/or melt things, Fire Negation, Pyro-Telekinesis & Pyrokinetic Flight, Flame Shield, Healing Fire

Limitations:
His powers are physically fatiguing, straining or even crippling, with Yancy either bleeding from the nose or eyes, falling unconscious, entering a coma, or even dying from the mental effort of using the ability.
The Fire Triangle (Oxygen, Fuel, Heat) applies:
Oxygen is needed as comburent.
Sufficient lack of heat may complicate things.
Some kind of fuel to burn is needed.
Can be overpowered by water, ice and/or cold.

This all looks fine to me with one exception. The name Pyro is canon. It is a well known long time enemy of the X-Men and member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. You will have to change the name.

It's a bit difficult for me to search while on my phone. I will see about it in the morning after I get off work.

peanut gallery chiming. Infernus, Flamespin, Firenado, Hot Wheels, Ixion (The Wheel of Fire originates in Greek Mythology as the punishment for Ixion, who was bound to a wheel of fire for lusting after Zeus's wife, Hera.) and Conflagration would still all be available. Fire names are REAL popular in comics.
"The nerve of... Ugh!"- Celeste
"Our enemy is never as evil as we imagine." - Katyusha
"Utterly' is my favorite way to destroy something." - Alecta
"Turn your wounds into wisdom" - Anna
"..." - Eventide
