YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE SAFE AND SOUND
but you need a hero now
Full Name: Keliann Walker
Power: Keliann is an empath. She can feel people’s emotions and send hers to others. She also has the ability to impose an emotion on someone but it takes great concentration for her to achieve it because she has to create it, not only transfer it. Her power works very well in approximately a 10 feet range but can go further when she’s emotionally connected to a particular person.
Alignment: Hero (not yet in the Guild, however)
WHERE'S THE STREET WISE HERCULES
to fight the rising odds
Appearance: Keli is not overly tall but she likes her height at 5’6’’. She holds herself into a high posture that shows her confidence and her professionalism while at work. She has long brown hair which she ties in a ponytail whenever she’s on duty but likes to keep them loose whenever she isn’t. It’s like the job and her personal life brings two different looks.
Of course, being a paramedic means she has a uniform that goes along with the job. Thankfully, they could provide her with one for women that isn’t too large on her slender body. On the other hand, whenever she’s out of duty, at home or out, she likes to wear a good pain of jeans – she has a thing for skinny’s – and an assortment of different shirts, depending on the occasion. She likes to be casual, never over the top and particularly normal looking. She doesn’t like to attract all the sights on her, she prefers to lay low and be herself, nothing too flashy, nor too boring.
Defining marks: None.

I CAN'T DO THIS ALL ON MY OWN
no I know I'm no Superman
Personality: Empathy has not become her power for no particular reason. Keliann has always been caring for her peers, even those she liked less. She was – and still is – the go-to person when one needs help in anything, both psychological and physical problems. She can easily keep secrets, even from her family and friends and the best example is possibly her power which she is still the one and only person to know about and has never told anyone. Not because she would be afraid of their reaction, she trusts enough people for them not to freak out over her not being perfectly normal, but simply because it makes things a whole lot easier for her if people don’t know. She can then help people with it without being harassed or looked up at. She is in no way looking for any kind of fame or recognition.
She tends to portray herself as courageous and cold blooded (?) but those personality traits haven’t stuck with her for her entire life. She developed them as she became a paramedic and ever since she started working fighting death every day. She had never imagined when she first started her studies that it would be that hard the first year or so but she had managed to get used to it and can now control herself – and her empathy – when helping someone in need. Gratefully, she can “switch off” her empathy if someone is in too much pain or she would feel it all, something she couldn’t do at first and made everything a whole lot more difficult.
Keliann is a complete workaholic. She loves her job and if she could keep helping people in her sleep, she would. She’s devoted to what she does and believes to have found the perfect path of her life. However, she can party and have fun when the time permits her to. She’s not the “get drunk” type but a beer every now and then never hurts. She had to take the most of it when she can, she’s on the verge of her 30’s and it freaks her out more than it should.

Being referred to as a savior and put on a pedestal
Loosing another member of her family
Not being able to pursue her career all of her life
IT'S GONNA TAKE A SUPERMAN

History: Keliann was born in an average family. She is the first child of Henry and Olivia who also, four years later, had another baby girl together. Keliann became the big sister and has, already at this age, started being overprotective of her sister and keep making sure she was safe and sound. Her altruism didn’t stop there. In school, she was always the one to know everyone’s secrets because they knew she could be trusted and she would keep her mouth shut about it no matter what. Plus, she was always giving out good tips to solve many different kind of problems.
She was a quite smart kid and a straight A student without boasting about it. She liked learning new things and was always fascinated by any form of science because it seemed so central to the functioning not only of the society but the whole world in general. Not only did she find it fascinating but she was good at it and it helped her understand the world and people as well. She never had many true friends but the ones she had were there to stay and were those who she really cared about. In fact, she still sees some of those she was with in high school, whenever she has the time.
At 16 years old, when one of her friends came to school looking slightly depressed, Keli oddly started feeling depressed as well even if she was trying to cheer the girl up. It was really unlike her as she was usually the cheerful kind of person. Later the same week, she started to have odd mood swings and was sent to see the school’s psychiatrist who didn’t find anything abnormal but who simply told her she might be influenced by her friends’ attitudes and want to create a personality of her own, which she knew for a fact to be a false assumption. She dug into the library for the next couple of days and found information on such a thing called empathy and did some of the tests that were described in the books only to figure out she was indeed an empath and that she had a given ability others didn’t have. Of course, this influenced in no way who she was and what she was doing and she learned to have a certain control over it, enough to block people’s emotions relatively well if she didn’t want them. She didn’t want to be seen as different so she never told anyone about her particular power.
When she was 21 and studying medicine in University, she was still living with her parents because she had never felt obligated to move far away from home to study and let go of the hold her parents had on her. She felt well with them and even though she and her sister might have had some quarrels, it was never enough to fed up either of them enough so that they would need to move out. By then, she was starting to get a good hold on her power and one particular night, she felt a weird psychological pain and great fear and she knew it was from someone else in the house. Quickly, she went downstairs to find her father bent down over her mother who was laying on the ground, apparently in pain. Keliann rushed over to her, knowing she was having a heart attack because the symptoms she was showing. She quickly ordered her father to call the ambulance and she tried doing everything she could to help her mother, everything she had been told in her classes. She remembered them by heart but unfortunately she was out of resources in the house and her mother died right in her arms, before the ambulance could get there.
The death was natural but Keli couldn’t help but to wonder if she could have helped her before it was too late if she hadn’t been so concerned about her finals, which she had been studying for on this particular night. She might have felt something was wrong in her mother’s mind and intervene earlier. Instead of bringing her down like it did with her sister, this event helped Keliann grow stronger and want to finish her studies even quicker in order to be able to save people’s lives. She started practicing her power so she could have a better control over it but the ultimate test came only when she first started working as a paramedic where she learned better than anywhere else to control every little aspects of it and even found out that she could send emotions to others, like positive thoughts to patients badly injured. Now, 5 years later, she’s still doing the same job and loving it. She lives alone in a small apartment but she couldn’t be happier.

“No shit, Sherlock.”
Keliann rolled her eyes at her partner’s sarcastic response to her affirmation about them being late. Traffic was a pain at this time of the day and even though the ambulance lights and siren were making it quite obvious that they needed to go through, some people were stubborn enough not to grant them the passage before everyone else. So okay, they wanted to get home after a long day at work. Fine, but someone on the other side of this freaking bridge wanted to live.
Managing to zigzag through the cars and finally get on the other side, they soon reached the house they had been called to. Before the vehicle had made a complete stop, Keli was already coming out of the passenger’s door and running to the back of the ambulance in order to get the gurney out and be ready to receive the injured man. The man had cut himself with the metallic corner of the side of his pool across the arm and had apparently been loosing a whole lot of blood. Banal situation, but the kind she faced every hour of every day. And to her, they were all as equally important.
The man was brought on the gurney and they didn’t even bother strapping him for the time being, they needed to stop the flow of blood first. The gurney was rolled over to the ambulance and pushed in. Keli quickly jumped in the back along with the man and rose his feet a little higher than the rest of his body to increase blood circulation and keep the heart pumping. She strapped his upper arm tight, however, to stop the circulation in that particular area and started working on putting an IV to his other arm. Soon, her partner joined her and concentrated on stopping the blood flow while she gave him some medicines to keep him going until they reached the hospital.
When Clark, the other paramedic, was mostly done, he rushed back to the front of the car and sped up on the road while Keliann strapped the man to keep him from moving and hurting himself while the ambulance was rolling. He was plugged in the electrocardiogram and his pressure was relatively steady, even if abnormal. Sweat covered his forehead and she brought a wet cloth to cool him down a little. Looking down at him, she grabbed his uninjured hand and for the first time, concentrated on his emotions. He was panicked but felt weak all the same and she could feel a glimpse of gratefulness somewhere deep down in his mind. Smiling, she starred into his eyes and transferred some positivity to his already mixed up emotions and slowly, his pressure came back a little closer to the normal level. He managed to smile back at her and from this moment on, she knew he would be alright.
