19Place of Birth:
I refuse to acknowledge most forms of authority- I resents having most any aspect of my life controlled. That isn't to say I'm stupid about it, though- I doesn't disobey orders for the point of doing so. And if an order makes sense, I'll do it- but I'll still chafe at the idea of being ordered around. Naturally, I'm not a big fan of our less-than friendly neighborhood Dr. Frankenstein.
I also refuse most kinds of authority, unless it's a rather informal position without anything in the way of a binding agreement, or if said authority has proven itself to be worthy of me following it. Or if it's suicidal for me not to do otherwise.
I once wondered what I would do if put in a dedention camp or something, and realized that mostly likely I would attempt to annoy the police at every single turn until I was beaten up, at which point I would be more subtle. If I can be subtle.
I treat allies on an informal basis unless formality is necessary. I also typically give an ally what they request and keep them in the loop, unless I am unsure of their sincerity.
If someone's my enemy, I either ignore them, go out of my way to make their life humiliating, or disable them (depending on the kind of enemy). Unless it's Dr. Evil's Super-Secret Underground Complex. Then I'm in favor of killing him, killing all his guards and cronies, and burying the entire place under tons of rubble.Fears/Likes/Dislike:
I'd have to say that the major hatred/fear I have is fire. Anything larger than a candle closer than a few feet makes me start to panic. I also hate mustard and loud noises.History:
Quite a while before I was born, my parents moved from Egypt when it became clear a war was about to happen (smart move- they lived in Sinai). They lived in the US for a decade or two before moving back to Egypt for vacation, during which time I was born.
After the age of three years or so, I lived in Boston. Most of my life was pretty average before my teenage years, though at a fairly young age I watched a zombie film and ended up being sucked into preparation for a zombie attack (later it became a Dalek attack, since anything capable of killing one of them can kill a zombie). I took an interest in transcendentalism around the age of 13, after spending a very long time staring at a tide pool. My parents were less than thrilled, but they knew enough about my personality to know that they couldn't force anything on me, even if they had really wanted to. So they tolerated it. Besides, I never thought it in a religious way, simply that observation of nature was the best way to understand the world.
I started eskrima for the purpose of self-defense, so my parents would feel better about my habit of getting a bit turned around and taking walks by myself, when I turned 16. I've been taking it ever since, and have become rather adept at it. I can knock out your run of the mill mugger, but I'd have very little chance against a soldier. But now that I have phytokinesis, that may change if I'm wielding wooden weapons. But like everything, it will take time. Time I don't have.
School was fairly simple in an academic sense. Assignments were fairly easy- not just for me, but for the entire school. Socially, it was a different matter.
When you look different than everybody else, people give you odd looks, wondering about who and what you are. I knew, of course, and I told them- but it didn't make much of a difference. I was foreign, and looked it. I was defiant towards authority, causing people to give me even weirder
looks, which I hadn't thought possible but obviously was incorrect about. I spoke Arabic (sometimes, it's certainly useful to swear in it, since no one knows what you're talking about), and that also marked me. The fact that I wasn't very religious marked me further- here's an Arab walking around in a T-shirt and jeans, not seeming religious in the least. It upset the worldview some had of Arabs being incredibly devout.
Sensing that I had decided that life sucked, my parents dragged me off to India, then a few regions of Africa, attempting to demonstrate what actually counted as life sucking. I didn't complain again, but did begin to have a resentment towards those who would impose their social structures on other peoples- after all, that's what caused so many wars and genocides in the developing world. I also noticed that whenever anybody went and tried to fix it, they made things worse. The Cold War, the modern situation in the Middle East... to me they stem from a root cause, which is the tendency of a powerful nation to interfere, using the military, with the affairs of smaller ones. After that I got to go to Australia, which was nice. The sun there was as good as in Egypt. And unlike in Egypt, my parents weren't going to worry about my sleeves being too short or something like they usually did. Not that they were that short in the first place.
And thus my anti-authoritative streak was strengthened.
I graduated, and didn't go to college immediately as my parents suggested, instead hopping on a plane and going to Montana, intending upon seeing the world, but first the Bridge Wilderness, which one of my classmates had recommended. I was in there for about five minutes, then was ambushed. I managed to take down one person, who was stupid, and drunk, and let his guard down, with a great big stick, but then that same person tased my ankle as I was stepping over him to attack his buddy.
The Bridge Wilderness is overrated. Rangers are extremely unfriendly and tase hikers. Rooms at lodge are tiny. Toliet facilities are nearly nonexistant. Very little wildlife, almost all of it exotic, sentient, mutated, and in small cages. Lowest possible recommendation.Physical InformationVisual Appearance (completely optional): Physical Appearance:
In human form, I have rather olive-colored skin, black hair that is usually in a male haircut, and lime-green eyes. In dolphin form, I'm sleek, with a white underside, pinkish sides, and a gray upperside. There's a lighter gray area coming in from my eye.Clothing and Armor:
I wear a cotton T-shirt and denim blue-jeans. Both are organic due to my mother insisting upon it.Weapons
I am trained in eskrima, and thus an adept with short rattan poles.Inoculated onlyAlternate Form
* The ability to change the color of wood and carve it.
* The ability to take a plant and modify its genetic structure so it grows into a device that takes nutrients from the air. Any device she must understand, unless she uses Serum 43x, in which case she can have one thing she had no clue as to the workings of involved. Fortunately, it seems that her ability to comprehend technical schematics has skyrocketed.
Growth time depends on complexity. A rough scale:
* Small knife: several days
* Big, sharp knife: week
* Gun: several weeks
* Computer: several months
Each individual object shall be submitted unless it contains no moving parts and can fit in the palm of the hand. In other words, if it's the size and effectiveness of a knife.Other InformationFaction:
