17Place of Birth:
Las Vegas, NevadaInoculated:
Shae is rather timid when it comes to other people, mostly having to do with where she grew up. She'll do her best to avoid being noticed where possible, and if confronted violently, she doesn't hesitate to strike a debilitating blow and make a run for it. If confronted non-violently, or with enough of a show of strength, she will likely submit. Once she gets used to her 'allies' she'll likely be a little bit more open, but that will likely take a while. She holds with no religion, and doesn't take kindly to anyone spouting it off at her. She hates assholes, people who focus on her hair, and people who betray trust. She likes cool water and fantasy novels. Her strengths are her ability to cope with the given situation, and to adapt her personality to fit in better. Her flaws are her fear of actual attention from anyone, her easily embarrased nature, and her tendancy to allow others to push her around.History:
Her mother is one of the more expensive whores on the streets of Vegas, so it's natural that the pregnancy was more than a little unexpected by her mother, as well as whoever the father might be. There wasn't much chance of getting a solid lead on him unless all the men she'd been with had their DNA in a database somewhere. The man her mother 'worked' for told her that she was going to keep the child all the way through, and in fear of losing the only job she'd ever been good at, she had to agree. The birth occured without problems, and surprisingly, her mother's employer said he would let her keep enough to take care of the child, but in a different location than where she worked, so as to not disturb the clients. Growing up in that house was more than a little interesting. Her mother would occasionally get a call in the middle of the day, and have to rush off to work, not bothering to explain things to her daughter along the way. Since her mother hadn't wanted her knowing what she did for a living, she constantly lied about it, though there was always that small part of her mind that wondered. She didn't question it though, as she got older. Her mother never had time to reassure her, or really much time to talk, as she got whatever sleep she could during the day, and that was usually interrupted at least once every other day. So she was always a little tired at the least, which forced Shae to work through her school work on her own. Her teachers knew what her mother's profession was, so they never volunteered to help her, as the child of a whore and all. She was raised to be self-sufficient, though when her mother finally noticed that she was starting to develop a little, she did a bit of extra work to get her trained in the very basics of self defense in the form of judo. She wasn't particularly good at it, but she wasn't bad either, though she opted out of the course once she had gotten them down. She had a vague suspicion about the deal her mother had to make to get her the basic lessons, and decided on her own not to prolong things. At school, she was usually the target of ridicule for the more popular groups, and the less popular ones didn't wish to cross the line, so she was left alone aside from such griping, save only for a couple people. Her two friends, Kristen and Leonard (Who preferred Lenny) stuck with her when they could, and were about the only people she ever considered friends. Kristen was the typical blond beauty, with an overabundance of curves, though she never falunted it and kept away from getting a boyfriend for some reason. Leonard was a bit more of a nerd, wearing thick rimmed glasses and always carrying a pen, but he was surprisingly strong of his build. It was just after she'd graduated her junior year of high school that she vanished. Her mother was so busy in those last few days that she didn't notice at first, and after a month of searching, she was officially missing, though most people didn't care and it didn't make any news but the localPhysical InformationPhysical Appearance:
Shae stands at approximately 5'7" tall, usually with tanned skin. Unkown how long specifically she's been underground, so it may have faded back down to her regular 'pale' skin tone. She is rather thin, though not quite enough to show any of her ribs unless she sucks in a lot of air. Even being from Vegas, she is not particularly beautiful, though she's easy to notice, as her hair is naturally a long slivery-white color, while her eyes are a stunning blue. Her normal response is to tie it back into a ponytail, and tuck that into the back of her shirt, to keep it out of the way. If left free, it would fall approximately down to the base of her shoulderblades.When Transformed:
The inital plan was to turn her into a tiger, but because her hair had already turned completely white by this time, there's a slight twitch in the change. Once transformed, she becomes a white tiger, rather than the traditional organe. She spans a full 9'11" long, and weighs in at around six hundred pounds. Height wise, she is roughly 4' and her stripes are a solid black. Clothing and Armor:
As she was kidnapped in the middle of the night, something relatively easy to do, she was wearing a thin, overly long organic white shirt that runs down nearly to her knees. The underclothing was treated, and will not survive the transformation. Once she understands how things stand, she'll make due with what she's got.Weapons:
None, unless her slight ability with judo counts.Inoculated onlyAlternate Form
The powers she was given are good, but also bad, easily able to be seen as some form of curse. She was given the ability of emphatic healing. What this means is, by touching someone, she is able to take their wounds onto herself, effectively healing them. She can do this with any injury, but if it was fatal for them, it will be fatal for her. This process takes up to ten minutes, if she cant' concentrate through the pain, and can be stopped halfway if she merely wishes to make sure that they won't be as badly injured.
Similarly, the reverse of her power is also true. She is able to force the physical wounds she has received onto another person, taking the same amount of time as it does for her to take one onto herself. The requirements for her power is that she has to be touching them for the duration of the transfer, and should direct skin contact be broken, the ability would similarly be stopped. Damage would have still been transferred, but not all of it. She can not affect anyone who has died with this ability, nor can she fix psychological problems. She is similarly unable to bring someone out of a coma with her abilities, no matter the cause, because she would pass out partway through, likely leaving both of them unconscious.Other InformationFaction:
Test Subjects. No special position.Bonus Section:
Okay, since there will probably be comments and such, answer time. Why judo? Living in Vegas, you need protection. She's too young to be trusted with a gun, and tazers only do so much. White hair? Yes. It's fully natural. Both myself, and my mother, started getting white hair at a young age. She had a full head of it by 16, while I'm only about halfway there at 20.
