Other – Jet isn’t a part of any groups yet, the thought of filing paperwork is a headache not to mention her lack of control, and word of the street was the X-factor group wasn’t accepting any more members. The blonde operates at her own level, but wouldn’t mind teaming up with the good guys. Acting almost as a vigilante, until she can find acceptance somewhere.Name:
Jet Danielle BlackCodename:
None yet.Place of birth:
30Time at the Institute:
Jason Davis (Father), Emma Davis (Mother), Sara 'Camera' Davis (Younger Sister)Base of Operations:
Her home in Mutant TownSexual Orientation:
Straight Physical Appearance:
Jet is thin and has a medium build to her arms and legs. She stands at 5 feet 8 inches and weighs 135 pounds. Her hair is curly, blonde, and extends to the rib and has tanned skin. She has brown eyes; in her eyes it seems as thought she’s either holding something back or has something to say. Her walk is upright with shoulders back and chin level with the ground and doesn’t slouch. The blonde carries herself with confidence and a small smile.
Jet’s voice is light and feminine. When meeting someone new her tone of voice is quiet and calm. If she’s speaking with a friend her voice gets a little bit louder, and holds the same confidence she carries with her. When it comes to jewelry, She doesn’t wear much except a watch and a necklace that has two old fashioned keys and a charm that’s a metal four leaf clover, on a thick, black, leather string.Distinguishing Marks:
While using her powers Jet's eyes glow silver, if she loses control of her powers her hair changes to a silver color. Random scars on her back and arms.Clothing style:
Mostly tank tops and jeans. But every now and then she’ll wear short sleeves or long sleeve depending on the weather.Xsuit:
Jet has the ability to expel forms of energy from her hands, more commonly known as energy blasts. The blasts of energy are a silver color. She can also make the energy into a stream and use the energy to spread it out as a defensive shield, which is known to the mutant world as energy construct. The amount of damage the shield can take is limited. If the shield is hit with something that can’t take the damage it shatters like glass, but it’s not harmful to Jet or others if the shield breaks. The shield is a little bit taller than she is and doesn’t spread out further than her own body shape. People she might be protecting would have to stand behind her.
Jet can also fly; as she flies there is a silver glow around her, it's believed that it's the same sort of energy that she forms in her hands that help her to fly. Her flight is more controlled than her main powers, she is able to fly as high as she can, which isn’t much because if she goes too high she becomes dizzy that’s usually a little bit before she reaches the same height as most airplanes fly. When she loses control of her main powers her flight is very much affected by it. She’s unable to fly straight, or fast enough, or high enough.
She's not sure why her eyes change color when she uses her powers, same with her hair. Jet's eyes glow silver very shorty before she uses her powers. When her hair changes it starts at the roots and works it way down. Possibly relating the hair change as a sign that she's loosing control. Weakness:
Jets energy blasts are strong but doesn’t last long, burning out after five minutes. And it only ranges at a maximum distance of a football field When she is overwhelmed, by using too much of her powers it become uncontrollable or non existent and eventually passes out. Resulting in a major headache when she wakes up. When her powers become uncontrollable the blasts of energy are likely to blast off her hands randomly and hitting wherever it flies at. With high velocity impacts her shield shatters, as it does with impact that are vast in weight. For instance she could probably shield herself from gunfire, but not from a big boulder. Anything that weights more than one ton and her shield would shatter. Most mutants who have the ability to construct energy can make it into any form they wish, that’s not the case for this mutant. She can only form it into a ball in her hand, a stream in her hand, and a shield in front of her. Unless she’s in the air her loss of control doesn’t affect her flight. But if she were in the air, she could either uncontrollably fly into outer space, or cease to fly at all.
Because of her getting kidnapped and tortured by regular humans she has an inability to trust them. Although she has repressed memories of her ordeal she doesn’t know why she can’t trust humans. Her memory repression took its major toll when she looses control over her powers. Her power reminds her of what happened and her mind rejects it. Jet has some personal regular weaknesses also. She’s an occasional smoker, and fears bridges. Also the blonde, has a fear of caves or dark small spaces. Not completely unlike claustrophobia, but if she were in a tight space but it was well lit, she’d have no problem with it. Something about the dark and being closed in scares her so much she’ll freeze up and hyperventilate. Personality:
Around humans, Jet is the quietest person you’ll ever meet. Shy, distant, nervous, and cautious. Due to the fact she can’t trust humans, she felt betrayed by the ones who had kidnapped her and figured she can’t trust humans to be who they are. She keeps her head down to the ground and avoids eye contact. In a crowd of humans she would be characterized as a mousey librarian, uncomfortable in her own skin. Even if a human were to seem friendly towards her, she’d keep suspicion close to her heart about them. She’ll trust most mutants unless they give a reason not to. So far she’s never felt that same sort of betrayal that she did with humans. Although if she were to feel betrayed by a mutant she wouldn’t take it as bad as she did toward humans. If she were to trust a human it would take years, and it doesn’t mean she won’t try to protect them if her power could help. She’s not cold hearted, she just gives them the cold shoulder.
Around other mutants is a different story. She’s energetic, hyper, fun, and cheerful. Not to say she never gets sad, but for the majority she’s a happy person. Jet feels more comfortable in her own skin and walks with confidence. She loves to smile and flashes it at ever possibly chance she can. She realizes that SHIELD had made sentinels to destroy mutants, but every time she see’s one on the news or flying around, she has the urge to destroy it. She doesn’t want to kill, but has done so once, not that she can remember it. If in a small dark place, like in caves, or spelunking, she’ll freeze in fear and hyperventilates. But as said in her weaknesses, if the place was well lit she’ll go around like it’s nothing. All of that is caused by her kidnapping. She loves playing the guitar, and music. Movies are enjoyable to her but she would rather pick a concert. That’s pretty much the only exception she would make to be close to humans. She classifies musicians and humans in there own categories. Not filing in musicians with all the humans. History:
Jet was born with many privileges as a child, big house, rich family, the works. As the child grew up she felt like she was different than the rest of her family. While they were extravagant and showy, she was humble and conservative. The soon to be mutant knew she was very different from her family when she hit puberty at the age of eight and a half years old and realized she had mutant powers. When she told her family at the age of ten they didn’t disown her but they made her the invisible one of the family. Saying they’ll keep her in the family as long as she can hide it and no one else knows. It allowed her to get away with whatever she wanted as long as it made no public attention to her family. It let the blonde practice her powers so she could control them. And at a young age she could, honing her energy blasts and construct at a mountain side miles away from her home and the eye of the media. It had a little cave where she would hide in and use her powers.
Jet continued to go to the private schools and prep schools her parents provided for her. Learning new languages, including French, Spanish, German, and Russian. Also learning instruments, guitar being her favorite. Also going as far as getting a Bachelors Degree in college for the Arts, her major being music and minor in ceramics. After her graduation of college at the age of 21 the blonde notice a woman in the middle of the street who tripped and was about to go head to head with a semi. The mutant jumped in and used her shield to save the woman’s life, and finding out the man behind the semi was drunk. But instead of persecuting the driver, or helping the woman to her injuries, the crowd turned against the blonde. Shortly after the media found out. Her parents were disappointed and spun the whole thing like they didn’t even know and were horrified by there “own flesh and blood being a mutie”. They insisted she change her last name so she couldn’t disgrace them and be disowned from the family.
She changed her last name to Black one day after she had saved the woman. Hours after she changed her name her parents kicked her out of there lives saying, “We gave you one rule, Jet. And you broke it. Don’t ever call or contact us. As far as we’re concerned you don’t exist to us.” Jet headed over to the spot were she practiced for hours honing her powers. She figured that staying hidden until her name and face was of television seemed like a good idea. But when she looked in the cave there was a small group of people there. Seeming to be friendly and good willed she joined them to eat dinner. What she didn’t know was that the small group was an anti-mutant activist group that despised mutants, and had recently saw the news reports about her. They slipped drugs into her meal and it knocked her unconscious. They tied her up and took her within the depths of the cave.
Jet tried to run away from them several times after they kidnapped her. But she wouldn’t get far, the dark closed in space made it hard for her to see where they were coming from and the group was supporting night vision goggles and whips. Trying to get her to commit suicide so their troubles wouldn’t be considered as murder. She had been their captive for a week, spending her 22 birthday there, but the damage they did would stay in her heart. The day she escaped is the day she had lost mental and physical control of herself. By snapping and using her powers to kill everyone in the group. The mutant walked out with blood on her hands from the group, blood on her back and arms from the whip lashings they gave her, dirt on her face from them keeping her in the enclosed cave, and no memory of what she had just done.
The blonde walked through the terrain for a short while when she passed out in the arms of another mutant. The mutant was just passing by when he had seen her and came to her aid. She wasn’t able to answer any questions about what happened to her when Jet woke up and he treated her wounds. Lucky for her his ability was to heal others, unfortunately he couldn’t get rid of her scars. The male mutant told her she could find solace in New York, most mutants had been gathering there. She had decided to make her way to New York. It was a rough start for her, but after she made it to New York and got a job she was doing okay, even moving into Mutant town. The blonde had a part time job moving crates at a where house for nearly six years.
At the age of 28, when she had to use her shield to stop a bunch of crates from falling on some co-workers she quit. The shield broke after all the other workers got out of the way but her ankle got broken when the shield broke and a crate landed on it. After so many years of working with her co-workers, who were human, she had learned to trust a few, including her boss. He offered her to stay and they’d defend her as a part of the team, but she didn’t want to cause any grief to the other workers, knowing good and well that one or two of them hated mutants. Now Jet is in the search of a new job in Mutant Town. SAMPLE RP POST:
[at least 2 paragraphs.]
The unemployment building in Mutant Town was hot and sticky, despite how cool it was outside. Jet figured it was true what people said, the more people there are the more body heat would be felt. The blonde haired mutant waited for hours for someone to be available, being passed and cut several times in the process. After hours of waiting a husky woman in a long dress called her name. She stood and limped over to the worker, supporting a cast around her foot and ankle.
The woman lifted a brow and asked, “Jet Black is that really your name?”
A small sigh escaped her lips as she nodded. The woman lifted both brows and replied, “Alright then, I’m Mrs. Wesley and I’ll be helping you find a job today… hopefully. Follow me.”
Mrs. Wesley walked faster than Jet could keep up. Groaning as she realized that she had to slow down. But it wasn’t a picnic for the blonde either, she hated being slow.
As the two women sat down at the workers desk the oscillating fan rotated around her leaving the young woman still hot from the other room. They sat in silence as Mrs. Wesley read through her application. After an intriguing “Hmm”
she spoke, “It says here that you didn’t get fired from your last job but you had quit. Why was that?”“I think it’d be hard for me to move crates with my broken ankle.”
The missus nodded and looked to see if she could see the cast, as if it’d be the first time looking at it. “How’d it break?”
Jet shrugged and replied, “I fell.”
It was a lie to get the worker to stop asking questions about her injury. But before she could ask any more the blonde asked, “So do ya have any jobs for me or what?”
Mrs. Wesley flipped through some papers leaving the fan and the shuffling of paper being the only sound in the room. Several minutes had passed before she would speak again.“Well Ms. Black I hate to tell you this but you’re… over qualified for everything I got here. I’m sorry.”
Jet nodded figuring that would be the case. She shook Mrs. Wesley hand, said her thanks, and limped out of the office and the building. Not sure of where she should go next. This post has been edited by Jet Black on Feb 28 2010, 08:54 PM
