*Code name: Kinetic
Civilian name: Evelyn Chayce
*Birthday: June 27th
Villain appearance: She wears a loose fitting leather suit, which is black and maroon. The maroon runs along the the side seems, and down her legs. She wears a black hood, and a maroon mask underneath it which covers the area around her eyes. The boots she wears are also made out of black leather, and they prevent any noise she makes as she walks from being created. Lyn has a cape which she wears over her suit, and it is made out of a thick cloth, and it drags on the ground. Although it drags on the ground, it has no tears or discoloration. The cape is also black, but the outsides of it are maroon.
*Civilian appearance: She just looks like your everyday person, and tends to wear casual, everyday clothes. The clothes she will wear tend to be a light color. Her hair is dark brown, and bleached at the tips. She normally has it curled, but will, on occasion, straighten it. Lyn has a natural tan, nearly perfect skin, and is about 6’ tall. She has an athletic build, and is rather muscular. None of this is just because I want her to be a ‘perfect person,’ but because it plays into her role as a villain, and makes her the last person you would expect to be evil.
Personality: She has a completely separate one for her villain side, so I’ll separate this into two parts.
Civilian personality- She comes off as sweet and caring, and does whatever she can to help. She is funny, and has a good sense of humor. She can be sassy to those who are generally rude and hateful, but typically only does this to protect the (very few) people she does care about. Although this is all a mask to help hide her real identity, she plays it off really well, and it hides her villain side perfectly.
Villain personality- The second she puts on her mask and heads out into the world, she becomes the definition of a slimeball. She speaks her mind, and does what she wants. Quite often, she’ll play dirty, and will ignore the emotions of others. Kinetic doesn’t care about who she hurts, and tries her hardest to get her way. She is sassy, rude, dirty, kind of angsty if I’m being honest, snarky, and witty.
*Powers/Abilities: She can create a radius around herself which dampens the powers of others, and can also control shadows (she can make herself virtually invisible, if it is dark outside.. It is hard for her to dampen the powers of multiple heros, but she can do it if she uses enough focus and energy. And although this isn’t a power, she is extremely smart, and uses it to her advantage. She has a broad knowledge of poisons, and will often use poisons in fights (like I said, she plays dirty.)
*Gear/Weapons: Throwing knives, and a black dagger which she uses for close combat.
Weaknesses/Flaws: It is hard for her to use her power dampening radius if there are many people around, and if it is overwhelmed, it will turn off and suck up her energy. It is near impossible for her to use her darkness related powers in settings where there is bright lights. Her biggest emotional flaw is the fact that she needs to keep her two personalities separate, and she can have a hard time keeping up her sweet civilian personality if she is faced with something she feels strongly about, or is stressed. She is also a perfectionist, and this can hold her back at times when things don’t go her way.
Origin: Evelyn grew up in a rather wealthy family, and throughout her years of school, she had always been popular. Although she was popular and seemingly nice, she did tend to spread the occasional rumor and contribute to gossip, but that was the extent of her bad side. Eventually, when she was 18 years old and starting her freshman year of college, she had been walking back to her dorm after going to a friends apartment. As she had been walking home, it was raining, and there was the occasional thunderbolt here and there. She hadn’t thought anything of it, and just continued to walk. In the bag she had with her, she had bottle of chemicals she had been experimenting with. The only reason she had them with her was because she was showing them off to her friend, who was two years older than her and studying chemistry. To her bad luck, lightning struck her, and passed through her and the chemicals. When she had woken up, she had her powers, and began using them for good. Although she had initially been using them for good, she soon found out about her ability to dampen the powers of others, and began using this more and more. She became more pessimistic as she went on, seeing the amount of crime which went unpunished, and the horrors of what people were capable of. She soon began to break the law more and more while doing her superhero work, and eventually resorted to killing rather often. She liked the feeling of having that control, and began to go a bit insane. Lyn learned to separate her normal, daily life from her time as a vigilante (because she wasn’t really a hero at this point), and also learned how much she could get away with. Eventually, when one of her friends was killed in the crossfire of a fight from two other enhanced individuals, she decided that people with powers were too dangerous, and began to hunt them (rather hypocritical, but she was rather insane at this point). She began to think that heros were useless, and caused more damage than they helped, so she hunted them and targeted them. By this point, she was twisted, and caused damage for fun and because she liked that feeling of power. She enjoyed seeing the fear in others eyes, and to her, it was a nice break from helping as a doctor. In summary, she basically became insane because she liked feeling powerful and she hates heros because her friend was killed by one.
Other: Essence of a Hero. Currently, she is in medical school, and is training to be a neurosurgeon.
