The other Nightmare

Post by Rex on December 5th 2010, 5:51 pm

Real Name:Andrew Higgins
Super Hero/Villain/Renegade/etc Name:Nightmare
Title: The other Nightmare
Alignment: Neutral
Age:15
Gender:Male
Race:Human
Hair:Black (Shadow Black)
Eyes:Green (Except when in shadow)
Height:5'11
Weight:176

Costume Description/Image: if Description please be very detailed.

Personality:Andrew is a emo kinda person brooding and quick tempered but it comes from his powers of living his own nightmares over and over. Andrew is very distant and solitary helping others only when it suits him but normally Andrew is highly paranoid having seen nightmares his entire life. Quick to judge others but hates being judged himself he enjoys watching other peoples fear since it takes the fear away from him.

History:Andrew Higgins was born on Halloween night to a happy go lucky family and as a baby he was fine. When he got home his parents put him in his new crib and went to make supper only seconds flew by before the child was wailing out of his mind and only when his mother picked him up would he stop crying for at birth Andrew Higgins had lived his first nightmare. Andrew grew up abnormally being very odd and shift sometimes cringing in corners muttering 'Let them leave let them leave" over and over until his parents were called. Andrew visited many shrinks and therapist all who said the same thing Andrew was nuts for he told them he lived his worst Nightmares every single second of every day. Andrew was sent to Glen Oaks mental institution when he was 7 years old his mind having snapped under all the terrors he saw.

While incarcerated Andrew met a girl named flower who seemed to be able to see the creatures that plagued the young boy, Flower was 17 and one month away from being free from Glen Oaks but she too had a gift and hers was sight, Flower could see things that troubled people and when she saw Andrew for the first time she also saw the nightmares that walked with him but she wasn't scared of those she had her own fears. Flower befriended the young boy whispering to him at first before talking to him. Flower managed to keep the nightmares from bothering Andrew too much but she knew his mind had already snapped. Andrew watched flower leave a month later and was once again in his own living Nightmare but seven months later Andrew was made a trustee of the institute and was allowed a room mate a man by the name of Oliver Twist and Andrew doubted his name was real. Oliver was 15 a real side show freak and use to pick on Andrew all the time, The final straw came when Flower visited Andrew and Oliver tried to put moves on her, When Flower ignored Oliver he struck her and in his rage Andrew plucked the young mans worst fear right from his mind and summoned it. The image was of a man with a sledgehammer whistling as a dead body laid on the floor before those cold brown eyes turned on Oliver.

Oliver let out a pitiful moan but Andrew didn't realize just what he could do until the nightmare man slammed the Sledgehammer into Oliver's temple killing him making Andrew realize he gave life to his Nightmares. Once Oliver was dead the image faded but Andrew had found a new talent. Andrew was released from Glen oaks at 15 but the years had been good for Andrew had learned many tricks to the gift he had, Sadly Flower was not there she had moved far away and he knew he would never see her again. During his time Andrew also found out something else he liked shadows and they liked him, Andrew was able to manipulate it and bend it to his will even solidify it. Andrew spent 2 years in a abandoned house his old house learning his powers and what it could do. He is now 17 years old and ready to give a new nightmare to the world.

Nightmare got into a fight a week after coming out of hiding and got owned since it was a blazing hot day that killed all the shadows, Nightmare created the rings to work with his D.N.A. only so to anyone else they would be jewelery. Nightmare also burned them into his flesh so that no one could take them off or remove them, they were functioned by sucking shadow through the center and projecting them. Nightmare designed them after a comic to give them shapes and forms to fight with so even in a blazing light he can still use his shadow rings.

Powers:

Nightmares: Andrew can make people live there worst Nightmares by creating and solidifying there worst fears, Be it a monster or a pink bunny or a spooky mansion everything he creates is real. Facing multiple opponents make it harder since sometimes different fears will jumble it into something ridiculous like a large pink bunny or a super wrestle in a Balerina outfit so these normally work better against one or two people.

Shadow manipulation: Andrew can manipulate the shadows to his will. (Like the green lanterns ring) Andrew can form cages from shadow or concussive beams or even melt into them and vanish. (The vanish part requires a 3 post charge time unless escaping from a fight adrenaline kicks in and makes it to 1 post), This power also allows him to heal wounds by adding shadow energy to the wound.

PowerGrid:
Intelligence:2
Strength:2
Durability:6
Speed:3
Energy Projection:6
Fighting Skill:1


Character Image/Description:Nightmare normally has long black hair, green eyes and stands 5'11 with a well built athletic body and a tan. He is White but always keeps a tan. However thanks to his Nightmare power when he meets someone he is Usually wrapped in shadows and tends to stay that way. He is a handsome person when not in shadows and is quite easy on the eyes but his eyes are feverish with insanity and fear.

Roleplay Sample: Jake stood in his new lab well technically he worked for a man but that same man now laid on a metal table his arms and legs strapped down by heavy metal links. Jake turned walking over to where a large snake lay coiled staring at the man from inside a heavy glass container. The snake was called chooka also known as the snake of the sewers, The snake was 8 feet long and a crimson red with bone spikes going down it's back. It's twin fangs were a foot long and stuck out from the side of it's closed mouth. The Chooka has misty eyes having been blinded many years ago it had fed off anyone or anything coming into the sewers.

Jake picked up a canister holding a green liquid and walked over to the man on the table. "Ahh Mark I must thank you for hiring me you see I would never have found Chooka without your help and for that i will make sure you be awarded with precisely what you deserve. Jake looked out the window it was midday cloudy with a storm coming in from the west it looked like a good one too. The building was white stone and 2 stories tall. A heavy wooden door hid the antics of what went on inside.

Jake slid the needle into the other man's arm injecting the green liquid which would keep the man awake through the whole process. Jake sat down pulling up his Holo-Computer punching in different codes as he looked over at the snake. A tendril of blue mana slid through the glass and wrapped around the snake as the other slid over the body of Mark. "Now this is going to hurt....alot sadly there is nothing i can do about the pain well there is but I'm not going to. Jake slid his fingers over the keyboard working in the fusion code a very complex code that Jake had wrote himself. The man yelled out in screaming agony as his insides bursted into flames the D.N.A code being fused with the code of Chooka. Jake moved the code to shift the body how he wanted it all the time Mark and Chooka squirmed in agony as there bodies were mutated together. Mark's head exploded as Chookas grew out the eyes turning into human eye balls, The skin melted off the meat as scales grew on in painful spots attaching themselves to meat and bone and shifting the veins to accommodate the new scale skin. The tongue split down the middle but stayed thick as blood gushed forward Jake decided to leave that but set up a special vein that would keep the Abomination from bleeding to death.

Jake smiled as he went to the hands stripping the fingers and adding thick snake tails for better grip, Jake added the bone spikes down the back watching as the skin bursted open the 2 foot spikes growing out and curving back.the legs bled as snake heads sprouted out each one poisonous and slid down the scaly legs each one two feet long and so many it looked like he was wearing a skirt of snakes. The feet he left alone those would suffice in moving around but he left the Scientists long black hair. Jake sat back looking at his new creation but shook his head activating another code that pushed the D.N.A code as Mark was forced to grow bigger the bones breaking in there stretching but also fixing themselves in a mind numbing pain. It's weight was increased now Chooka was 10 feet long (or Tall) with thick arms. Jake looked at the face and typed in the genetics growing two 3 foot long fangs and completely poisonous. Jake walked over lowering a large metal container with a glass visor onto his new Abomination naming it Chooka X. Jake stood it up and using a small spell pushed the Metal box into a hidden room and closed it. Jake walked over and sat down and activated his Holo-Computer wondering if there was a plague or even a plague vaccine he could make.

this seems ok....as long as the projections only have the same physical attributes his character, someone may look like a SUPER WRESTLER a pink tutu, but they'd still only be as strong as his character.

Well the Nightmares take on the attributes of the ones that fear them.

Okay, I have some questions mostly about his shadow manipulation power.

You say he can form cages. Does he form a physical matter out of the shadow? What are the limits of this material? And he can form concussive beams? what kind of strength and range are we talking about? Can he create and expand shadows or does he require shadows to already be present? I ask especially because my character's power is to move through shadows.

And your durability is set to 6, does he have another power or ability not mentioned that makes him so tough to kill? and your roleplay sample doesn't have to do with your character does it? That kinda confused me.

Well if the apparitions aren't limited by your own perception of those stats than I'd say it is OP, I would recommend making it a bit more believable. Since the aparitions are actually coming from you and you have no conception of what lvl6 strength is than there is no way for the projection to manifesst it.

Like a nightmare, things appear very scary, but in truth they are not. So if your apparitions choose to reflect someones fear they certainly could do so visually, but since you are the one manifesting them, I don't see how you could conceptualize any other attributes than your own.

Can't argue with that and it is a good point since I have no retaliation or information i must concede and agree wholeheartedly good catch. Then yes the nightmares will represent my own attributes but reamember these are your nightmares the worst monsters in the world are in your own head. SO basically charging through it would be OP since you are living that Nightmare since the characters power gives it true form.

As for the shadow he can conjure it anyway and as stated it works like the green lanterns ring able to take form and the power results from his 6 ep power.

But looking over apps i have seen a few characters able to make or create things with attributes that range in other categories so I assumed it was ok.

We have no problem with it being OP'd or not, we just wanted clarification. We wanted to make sure exactly HOW it worked. So you make it sound as if your shadow manipulation will be tangible and solid in the end not energy. Not a problem, again we wanted clarification.

My only problem is this: How do you know what the worst fears are? do you do some kinda mind read, or is it spontanous, a random thing to you?

I would assume it merely manifested as their fear, a phenomenon, like most people's powers.

Obsidior for example, how does he breath life into and then control dead bodies?

I say approved.

Post by Rex on December 6th 2010, 4:32 pm

Well as odd as it be I thought I pm and ask them what kind of nightmare they would like to go for kinda work with other people instead of just assuming. I mean i could just state there worst Nightmare rises and they can post what it is. But a pm would be more helpful.

I'm not really sure how i would solidify it no one irl ever being able to solidify shadows I wouldn't be able to...well tell you how he does it he just does.

Also a question do I have to figure out how to do the power sheet or do I ask someone?

Post by Sim on December 6th 2010, 5:34 pm

I'm sorry but I don't read comics much, so if you tell me it's just like the green lantern I'm just going to ask "What is the green lantern's power like?"

Does it depend on shadows being present? Does it just create shadows out of nowhere?

When you make cages and such, is it physical or energy based? Is it like a steel cage, or is it like lightsabers or something and it will hurt you if you touch it?

How strong is it? Strong as steel? Concrete? What does it take to break it?

What effect does light have on it?

Um Light has no effect I never fully understood the power of Green Lantern I mean He used energy but it solidfy and went off his own power which was alot so lvl 6 ep would be the strength of it. Um his power kinda takes energy and makes things like walls or Giant hammers or cages of energy.

Life is based on confronting ones fears! To say that is OP than you've doomed all of us to your whims. This is not realistic. The definition of brave would be to confront ones worst fears, and if heroes aren't brave then what are they? No the truth is that your powers are bases on something that may scare your average grade schooler,in a world of people who make their lives confronting such obstacles. So if you want to relegate yourself to being a C class villian, feel free. But if you expect us not to overcome the affects of your powers your kidding yourself.
