[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Name:[/font] Steven Victorson[/font]
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Appearance:[/font] A gaunt and limber fellow, Steven stands at 5’ 8” with a very thin figure; the term beanpole applies very well to him. His face possess what one might expect from a Filipino-German hybrid, smooth facial features accented by gaunt lines around the bones. He has dull blue eyes and gray hair cut at two inches. His skin has a light tan with a clear complexion.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Age:[/font] 25.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Power:[/font] Steven possesses the gift of electric manipulation, specifically, the ability to project it out from himself. This basically means that his whole body is an electrical generator, capable of outputting whatever amount of current his rank currently allows.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Rank 1-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 500mA and 200 volts.Rank 2-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 1 Ampere and 400 volts.Rank 3-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 1.5 Ampere and 600 volts.Rank 4-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 2 Amperes and 800 volts.Rank 5-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 2.5 Amperes and 1000 volts.Rank 6-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 3 Amperes and 1200 volts.Rank 7-Steven is capable of projecting and manipulating 3.5 Amperes and 1400 volts.[/font]
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Skills:[/font] Steven is a computer programmer and a hacker; his experience in the field comes from a combination of college education and ten plus years of experience. Other than that he is a decent sprinter.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Weaponry/Equipment: [/font]Steven has a tablet, a special piece of technology he had custom built for his purposes. It’s form is the same as any other ergonomic ten inch tablet, thin and lightweight, but is approximately three times faster than the best tech on the open market right now. It possesses a 4G connection, and can connect to multiple cellular networks, though obviously he’d prefer to keep to the one he’s currently paying for. Hacking into those things is annoying. In the more direct combat area, Steven possesses a glove that he created to channel his abilities. It consists of conductive fibers interwoven into a standard work glove, with bits and pieces of non-conductive ceramic securely glued onto the tops of the fingers for a bit extra when he punches people. The actual special part of the glove, however, is that it conducts his body’s natural electrical generation, channeling it into a dozen or so metal spikes on the palm and undersides of the fingers. Approximately a millimeter long each, they can penetrate most fabrics and basically act as a taser when he grabs someone’s shoulder.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Faction/Sympathies:[/font] He belongs to no one faction, but has sympathies towards NERBA and the work they do.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Personality: [/font]A relatively easy going fellow, he holds little particular malice towards the world or anyone else. While he is not apathetic, it takes a good deal of effort to make him care about something not immediately noticeable.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Bio:[/font] Steven grew up in a low-class suburban home outside of Indianapolis, spending most of his time out on the streets adventuring in the less reputable parts of town. All the same he, unlike most of his friends, attended school regularly and managed not to get mixed up with too many of the wrong people. It’d continue on normally, until around his thirteenth birthday when his parents got him a computer. It was a sad little thing, running on even sadder dial-up internet. Still, it was the first computer he personally owned and he adored it to no end. He enjoyed it so much that he began to program on it, finding a spare Redhat 11 disk in the school library and getting it to work on there.
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]He continued to derp around with the computer, but then life threw him a curveball. A few months after his fourteenth birthday his mancer ability manifested itself; it happened during a soccer match, ending with Steven shocking himself into unconsciousness. No one realized this of course, but Steven full well understood what had happened. He would continue to keep it a secret, experimenting with his abilities late at night. He discovered that he could produce electricity, but if it had nowhere to go, it’d simply flow into his body and give him a bad shock. Eventually he made the first version of his electrifying glove, a simple rubber bracelet cut and attached to a copper piece. [/font]
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]He would continue on through school, managing to keep his abilities a secret until his junior year in high school. The reveal came out after one of the more notorious local gangs tried to give him a beating and he was forced to use his abilities to dispatch them. His final year of high school was marked by a large amount of discomfort and vile, with teachers not quite sure what to make of him and the usually hateful teenage crowd doing their thing. Throughout it all he kept working away at his knowledge of programming, it becoming his primary hobby and quite often the only thing he’d do with his free time.[/font]
[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]When he graduated from high school he went to a small college some ways away, far enough away that he could leave his former life behind. He integrated rather successfully into its atmosphere, taking a course in computer science. It was here that he was introduced into the hacking scene, something he instantly got involved with. With a firm knowledge of programming already behind him he progressed quickly in the art, doing it often for fun, though rarely with malice in mind. That has begun to change though, with him beginning to view himself as an internet vigilante. He would graduate college with a degree and forty thousand in student loan debt. Now he lives alone in an apartment in Andover, working at his job during the day and spending his nights on the computer, programming video codecs and occasionally hacking into government websites for fun.[/font]
