User Name: [ancienteye]

Character name: Gavin Zhou

Mutant Name: Avian

Classification: Student.

Abilities/powers: Despite being quite visible, Gavin is very quick and difficult to catch. He is adept at running, jumping, climbing, and basically ducking out of the way. His speed and flexibility are just barely bordering on inhuman.

Sex: Male

Age/Date of Birth: 1516. January 5.

General appearance: Standing at 5'9", Gavin has a wiry build and rounded jawline. His nose is slim and somewhat curved, and his eyes are large and pale gold in color. Gavin, like his sister, has no hair. Where hair should be (top of head, eyebrows, etc), colorful feathers sprout instead. The very top and front of Gavin’s hair-feathers are a deep gold while the back of his head and towards his neck blends into red-orange. Fine, almost hair-like feathers are beginning to sprout on his torso and extremities due to puberty, the ones in his armpits being dark blue, whatever might show on his back fading from green to golden, and those on his front being a deep crimson. Gavin’s arms from the elbow down and legs from the knee down are somewhat like bird feet in their texture and yellowish coloring, also ending in bird-like claws.

Additional Appearance: Gavin tends to dress rather boldly, purposely selecting items for their bright colors or stark contrast from whatever else he intends to wear with it. Whenever he wears a jacket or buttoned shirt, he keeps the front undone so that the shirt underneath is plainly visible. Especially if the colors clash.

Personality: Gavin is a friendly enough guy at first. He is rather talkative and enjoys joking around. However, he tends to have a somewhat sadistic streak in that his humor can be rather cruel and he seems to enjoy annoying or inconveniencing people. He is incredibly competitive and tends to hold grudges.
Special Skills: Gavin has little to no artistic skills given his horrible color sense and the fact that he is certainly not a songbird.

Place of birth: Bandon, Oregon.
Weapon(s) of choice: Gavin is quick, but not particularly strong. If he ever had to fight instead of flee, he would prefer to do it long-range.

Brief History: Coral and Gavin Zhou were raised just outside of Bandon, Oregon. All their lives the two were homeschooled by their parents. They would go to the Coquille River on a regular basis so Coral could swim while Gavin enjoyed the fresh air (in all actuality, he was bored out of his mind, but it gave him an excuse to leave the house). As the years passed, Bandon became a popular tourist destination and while Coral was taking online college courses and Gavin was reaching high school level their parents began wondering if it was safe to stay there. It seemed to work out well for a while as the Zhou kids were only ever seen from a distance while covered enough to be disguised. Eventually, though, as the river attracted more and more tourists, rumors began to spread about a huge silvery fish—which some insisted was a mermaid—swimming in the deeper and more remote waters. At this point, Mr. and Mrs. Zhou decided to send their kids to Xavier’s school.

Relatives: His sister, Coral, and parents.

How long your character has been in the mansion: New arrival. Five months.

Current Attire: A neon orange tee and sky-blue shorts with pink edges and green stripes down the sides (the shorts he's wearing in Figgy's pic). Also, since it's warm he is beginning to molt, meaning that he's clogging up the shower drain and is leaving behind dull, raggedy feathers on the floor and furniture.

2014-04-06 [ancienteye]: XD "Friendly" being a relative term on Gavin's part, but sure. :P

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: I could totally see Gavin being the whole 'I must be better' and Rook casually flicks his wrist and sends him to the floor...for the fifth time. Because something about that is hilarious.

2014-04-06 [ancienteye]: XD Dude, that's exactly what I think would happen. Gavin's not that strong, but he's definitely got the ego to try.

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: Must play this. :D

2014-04-06 [ancienteye]: We absolutely must~

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: ^_^

2014-04-06 [Duredhel]: Hey Flisk :O got a question about Rook's power. Sorry for derailing the comments, Ancient XD.

I was thinking, what happens with Rook and say, someone like Devlin, who has stronger and longer legs which account for his increased speed/agility/etc. Would Rook touching Devlin reduce his legs/muscle mass in them and thus, disable his powers? Or would it have no effect considering his powers are a byproduct of his his body is already.. uh.. configured?

I was thinking of a similar situation with Wolverine, like.. I can see Rook disabling his healing factor easily, but I don't think touching him would get rid of the claws, right? Since that would be an extremely painful and complex physical transformation?.

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: Wolvie's claws (the metal) isn't even a byproduct of his mutation but put there. The claws (original bone) would be gone but the metal would still be in place. I demonstrated earlier what happens to physically mutated when he touched both Addy and Kiora. Addy lost her fur and coloration, still had her tail but couldn't use it. Kiora lost all of it, tail included. Addy's feet become normal, so I think that Devlin's would probably as well...I tend to leave up to the discretion of the player, though.

2014-04-06 [ancienteye]: Would Coral and Gavin grow hair? :o

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: At completely normal speeds, yes. :P

2014-04-06 [ancienteye]: XD So they'd be bald.

2014-04-06 [Duredhel]: Wouldn't that transformation be ridiculously painful? D:
Think about bone and muscle shifting around while still inside you, every nerve ending still connected to everything else.

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: Most likely. In Addy, when her feet shift, it's painful. It's harder than just losing powers. Physical mutations are worse.

2014-04-06 [~Valkyrie~]: Oh, wow...I didn't think of that.

2014-04-06 [Duredhel]: I'm surprised she didn't pass out or end up with massive internal bleeding or even being paralyzed from losing part of her spine so suddenly XD. It's like having one of those 20 hour surgeries... without pain meds and awake, and in 30 seconds.

2014-04-06 [Flisky]: This is why I leave it up to the discretion of the player. XP

2014-04-06 [~Valkyrie~]: That should have gone very differently, lol

2014-05-01 [Figgy]: Ancient, goes Gavin hunch over awkwardly, or does he stand normally?

2014-05-01 [ancienteye]: He stands all cocky-like with his shoulders back and a defiant look. XD

2014-05-07 [Figgy]: <img200*0:>

2014-05-07 [ancienteye]: *happy squeal* X3
