Name: Reyzadren

Appearance: Reyzadren has black hair that is combed to the side, black eyes, a goatee accompanied with some facial hair and a scruffy look. Although he has fair skin, it is slightly darker in tone. Slightly shorter than most men, he is around 1.84m and 71kg, so his body size is just below average. He wears a grey hoodie, red trousers and black shoes on a typical day. As a xydersen (custom user-made species), he has asymmetrical humanoid features, with green and purple leaves naturally entwined on his left hand, while having a blade joint on his right. Xydersen forms are only revealed at certain sites or times, so there is no reason to suspect otherwise.

Personality: Laid-back and hardy are the 2 words to describe Reyzadren. He is usually quiet but he talks loudly, especially when he gets excited. Though he is quite stubborn and individualistic, he can be easily influenced by friends. With his straightforward and direct "Let's get it done" attitude, others think of him as rude. While seemingly careless and lacking attention to details, he is definitely a decisive person who has clear preferences.


Background:

Back in the late 19th century, a xydersen was raised somewhere in the British Isles. Though the exact dates and locations were imprecise, it was an era of the Industrial Revolution for the sciences, and the Romantic period for the creative arts. Throughout the 20th century, Reyzadren wandered across Europe as the wars happened, stumbling upon a secret community known as the Aerhyos group. Though their motives are unknown, the Aerhyos group are aware of certain locations and properties of mystic artifacts and forbidden relics. Though more resilient than humans, xydersen are still aware that they are not separated from conflicts and dangers of the world.

Recently, he moved to America several years ago after accepting a job offer from Aerhyos Industries, as they call themselves in the 21st century. He works in a mine that was once abandoned, but is now revitalised along with the manufacturing industry. Knowledge from education experience and hobbies with his inactive band give him the social drive alongside humans, an advantage that he will take anytime. In Hemlock Valley, he wonders what those strange symbolic tiles on the overgrown fields ever signify.


Power: Source Corruption (Utility)

Reyzadren's powers involve disruption which allows him to snatch objects and corrupt them. With some preparation, his ability also includes corrosion that weakens various aspects of an entity. He can cause doors to rust and blades to be dull. Plants wilt and the soils become barren whenever he is unaware but they regain their vigour again after a while. However, the most dangerous characteristic of his power is that he can taint his intercepted catch or source: they tarnish, backfire and behave wildly as if they are cursed.

"...This creature does not like high-pitched sounds and he does not seem to traverse natural areas where there are insects. If the reader wishes to debilitate him, gather the essence below and read the semi-vanquishing spell as follows: (faded words)"

Concise application with just enough information, yet mysterious enough to be discovered later, while also bringing in new additions to the lore.
A creative power with broad applications and opportunities, plus I like that thing you did at the end there.

Name: Leonardo "Leo" Silverstone
Age: 18
Gender: Male

user posted image

Appearance: Leo is a tall young man, standing at 6'0". He is physically fit and quite strong, with a toned athletic physique that he is quite proud of. Due to living in a tropical place most of his life, and because he often goes outdoors, his skin is lightly tanned. His face is round, free of blemishes, and rather boyish. Marked by large expressive blue eyes, a small nose, and a usually smiling mouth. These features give him a rather youthful appearance. He has short, close cropped black hair, with messy bangs that cover his forehead, and go to his eyebrows. A strand of hair on top of his head always stands up, no matter how much he tries to comb it down. He doesn't mind it though, thinking it makes his hair more distinctive. Except for the top of his head, and eyebrows, the rest of his upper body is void of any hair.

For clothing, Leo generally wears what is comfortable. Usually whatever he pulls out of his closet that day. It usually includes a pair of jeans or cargo shorts, and sneakers or sandals on his feet. He can often be found without a shirt. This is because he was rather scrawny when he was younger, so now that he's put on a little muscle, he likes to show off the results. When he must wear a shirt, it will usually be a skintight tank top, or something low cut/not buttoned/zipped up all the way, and without a shirt underneath. He's not comfortable wearing cloaks or heavy clothing that covers him up too much. He will dress up for formal occasions and colder days when he needs to, but he usually takes it right off when he's able. He wears a pair of red aviator goggles on top of his head. He doesn't use them, he just thinks they look cool. His favorite outfit is a red, sleeveless, muscle shirt, with a pink V-neck, and a pair of jeans held up by a belt on the bottom. His sneakers are red and white, and have wheels in the soles. The wheels can pop in and out when Leo puts weight on his heels, allowing them to function like roller skates. He carries his things in a simple pink backpack.

Personality: Leo is a bright, cheerful person, with an optimistic view on life. He can often be found with a smile on his face, even when things look bleak. As such, he often makes jokes, and does silly things when the situation is tense to lift people's spirits, but his attempts to make people laugh sometimes backfire. He believes there is some good in everyone, and for that, he is very trusting of others. A genuine nice guy, he is always willing to help someone in need. Often putting the needs of others ahead of his own. After his parents divorce, and dealing with bullying, Leo is able to empathize with others in a similar situation. He makes it his personal mission to befriend and help people like this. Sometimes though, he can be too nice, to the point of gullibility, and people often take advantage of him for it. Leo is very outgoing and social. He likes meeting new people, and making new friends. He is not afraid to strike up a conversation with a random stranger. Being used to having to watch over his little sisters, he's become accustomed to taking care of people. He is loyal, empathetic, and very protective of those he cares about, making him a good friend to have.

Leo is very energetic. So much so, that it is very difficult for him to sit still and concentrate on one thing for long periods of time. Because of this, he likes to actually do stuff, instead of sitting there reading about it. While he is able to think quick on his feet during intense situations. he often acts impulsively, and jumps to conclusions without thinking first. Unlike a lot of guys he's known, Leo is the type of guy who wears his heart on his sleeve. His feelings are there for everyone to see, and he's pretty easy to read. For example he cries openly during the endings of sad movies, and is affectionate towards close friends. Due to his cheerful nature, it is usually difficult to anger him. That said, Leo is not perfect, and is prone to having a bad day just like everyone else. When things becoming overwhelming, he has really bad angry outbursts where he just lashes out at the most appropriate target. Leo isn't one to hold grudges for very long, and is very quick to forgive people.

Leo has an affinity for cute things, and is not ashamed about it at all. One of his favorite things at the moment is the TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which he watches regularly with his youngest sister. He is an unabashed Brony, he has a collection of merchandise from the show, and often makes references to it in everyday conversation. He's aware how silly it might look for someone his age to be liking a show aimed at little girls, and generally he has a good sense of humor about the whole thing. (However, he does get defensive if someone makes fun of him for it.) He's had bad experiences with bullies as a kid, and he fears having to experience that again. He likes fantasy and fairy tales, and he developed most of his idealistic beliefs from them. He also likes other things some would consider childish as well. He can cook well, due to having to make dinner for the family when his mom was working. He particularly enjoys making (and eating) desserts. This is because he's found that sharing sweets with others is a great way to bond with people.

Despite his optimism, Leo still has some insecurities from his childhood. He masks it with a smile and laughter most of the time. but it still lingers in the back of his mind. These feelings are what drive him to get stronger, and to make more friends. Those same reasons are why he dresses the way he does. and takes opportunities to show off his strength without actually bragging. He doesn't want to have to deal with bullies ever again, and he feels like getting people to like him means they can't be bullies.

History: Leo was born in Miami Florida. He was the oldest of three siblings, and the only male among the three. His parents' relationship became strained after his father, Leroy, lost his job shortly after the youngest daughter was born, and the family started experiencing financial troubles. It was not helped by Leroy turning to Wine to drown his sorrows, which worried the rest of the family. Leroy and his wife, Luisa, often argued loudly during the night. While things never escalated to physical violence, but the yelling still made the three kids uncomfortable. Despite the drama, Leo tried to put on a brave face, and hoped things would work out in the end. Eventually Luisa got a promotion at her job that made up for the loss of income, but by then the damage was done, and Leroy filed for divorce.

Leo currently lives with his mom, and his younger sisters Lilly and Lucy. He is much closer to his mother than with his father. They were not wealthy, but they weren't poor either. Being a single parent, Luisa often had to work long hours, leaving Leo responsible for looking after his sisters, and taking care of household things while she worked. Unlike a lot of other boys though, Leo didn't really mind this, and actually enjoyed it. As a result of this, he became accustomed to taking care of people. He also learned a lot of domestic skills, and became very good at cooking.

Leo always enjoyed desserts and sweets. From a very young age, whenever he was craving something sweet, he found some candy had magically appeared in his hands. He didn't know how it got there, but he certainly wasn't complaining about it. He always experimented with his powers, to test the full extent of his abilities. Leo wasn't very subtle with the use of his abilities at all, and it wasn't long before Leo's mother found it out about her son's quirk. This type of ability was common on her side of the family, although it skipped her generation, and it usually manifested in the women. He particularly enjoyed science and cooking classes in school. Where he could apply his candy quirk, and learn how to make various types of candy, such as candy with medicinal property.

He was a rather scrawny child, and he was often picked on by bullies who thought he was weaker than them. It did not help that he was a sensitive kid, and he had a taste for things that are usually considered girly by others. He would come home with bruises on a regular basis. His father did not help matters by suggesting that living in a house full of girls was turning him into one. While all the bullying upset him, he kept up a cherful demeanor in front of others, not wanting to burden them with his problems. He believed that if he thinks positively, things would get better. Even though Leo admits to himself that he doesn't get along with his dad, and he will avoid talking about him to others, he still doesn't hate him. He clings to the hope that they will be able to reconcile.

Around the time Leo entered puberty, things started to change. His mother announced that her office was transferring her to a place called Hemlock Valley, and that the family would be moving there. While he was nervous about moving to a new place, Leo remained positive. Moving to a new place gave him the opportunity to change his situation. Deciding that he no longer wanted to be a wimp, and a constant bullying victim. He started working out and getting into sports, which resulted in him putting on a little muscle, and making new friends. Due to his social personality, he quickly became quite popular on campus, particularly with other girls. He also maintained good grades. Life was actually starting to look up. Despite how well things were going, he didn't let it get to his head. He still remained the same sensitive kid he always was. Now a senior in high school, Leo has begun to think about his future. He is unsure what he wants to do with his life.

Power: Candy Magic

Leo has the ability to produce candy through molecular manipulation of sugar. The more sugar he eats, the more material he has to work with. For this reason, he is able to eat as much candy and dessert as he wants without gaining weight. He can make regular candy, weaponized candy to combat opponents, candy with special effects to support allies, or anything else he can think of that involves candy.
