Welcome to X-Men: Unhinged Evolution!
We are an alternate universe X-Men: Evolution roleplaying game that accepts canon/original characters and fun, creative writers. The time is set before season 1.
Mutants are not yet known to the public, but when superpowers are in the hands of hormonal teenagers who knows how long that will last. Professor Xavier is doing his best to delay the process by homing these young mutants and teaching them to control their powers. Magneto and Mystique are doing something similar.
So far, the only mutants living at the Xavier Institute are Ororo and Logan, whereas the Brotherhood of Bayville Boarding House is virtually unoccupied.
Who will be next? Who will be the X-Men? Who will be the Brotherhood?

Type A. And the A stands for Aaliyah. She is the epitome of high-strung. Motivated to be successful Aaliyah is always striving to live up to her own self-imposed expectations. She has to do well in school, she has to participate in extracurriculars, and she has to be an active member of her community. That resume needs to be bolstered somehow. Aaliyah finds success through her unending organizational skills. From her notebooks and desk to her calendar and schedule. Everything is color coded, and everything needs to be planned. On a daily basis, Aaliyah presents as someone who is energetic, kind, and thoughtful if a not a bit hard to be around because she is always on the go.
Of course, these qualities are only beneficial when things are going Aaliyah’s way. She doesn’t handle setbacks well, and any deviance from the plan is a huge cause of stress. The way Aaliyah deals with stress is generally to break down either in tears or keep chugging along until she fully exhausts herself. This naturally leads to Aaliyah snapping at others or closing herself off from social interactions to try and deal with things on her own. Previously in these moments, Aaliyah has had to rely on others in her community (family, friends, her church) to help her get things sorted again.
Aaliyah’s family has instilled in her a strong sense of social justice. She is very interested and vocal about social activism and human rights including issues of race, gender, and sexual identity. It's one of her favorite topics, and she isn’t afraid to be outspoken about that. Aaliyah dreams of some day using her education to pursue these causes and make a difference with her career. Her family has also always attended a Christian church, and Aaliyah upholds those teachings as part of her belief system. It was with the emergence of her powers that much of her faith has been thrown in jeopardy as she contends with the idea that she might be a demon! As such, use of her powers is extremely limited.
Although not presently known to be the case, A’s mutation has linked her psionically to the dimension known as Limbo. This dimension is similar to widely held notions and beliefs of what Hell looks like. So much so that it contains beings that resemble demons. Aaliyah’s ability allows her to create a connection to Limbo tethering it to the dimension we live in. Through this tether, a portal is created, and with loud crackle sounds she can summon two live demons on her behalf. Just as quickly as they can be summoned, they can also be willed away, banished. Theoretically, they could exist with her in our dimension as long as they were fed, but presently she has never summoned them for more than fifteen minutes. Her mutation causes Aliyah’s eyes to change to a glowing dark pink when the demons are summoned.
Presently she always summons two identical demons at the same time. She is unable to summon one alone, and she is unable to summon different Limbo creatures. These two demons are around four feet tall and resemble your traditional notion of what a devil looks like. They have dark red leathery skin, clawed fingers and toes, small horns, and wings on their backs. Despite their rather diminutive size, these two demons boast a rather incredible amount of strength and tenacity for accomplishing physical tasks that Ali would be unable to achieve on her own. Additionally, the duo can fly and reach places that normal humans could not. Together they can lift Aaliyah in flight. The pair is unable to communicate with Aaliyah or others except through screeches, hisses, and growls.
Although the summoned Limbo demons are able to do things as individualized beings, they are psionically linked to Aaliyah and therefore beholden to her will. If she were to desire that they weeded her garden, they would do so without question. First and foremost though their directive is to protect Aaliyah. If she is in a dangerous situation, they will sacrifice themselves to save her. They can even be summoned without a cognitive thought in times of extreme duress. When severely injured the devil creatures crackle back into Limbo where they must heal before they can be summoned again. While the duo of demons is healing, they cannot be summoned back to our dimension. It is presently unknown what would happen if a demon would die, though, it may be that she can call forth other new creatures from Limbo eventually.
Biggest Drawback(s): They’re terrifying. That is what bothers A the most. It should also be noted that this connection to Limbo does not imbue Aaliyah with other abilities.
Non-mutant power(s): Extremely organized, well-read, and slightly athletic
Hometown: Seattle, Washington
Birthplace: Seattle, Washington
Family: Joseph Edmonds (father), Reiya Edmonds (mother), Arianna Edmonds (younger sister)
Criminal Record: No
Aaliyah was the first born of Joseph and Reiya Edmonds. The pair had lived in Seattle their whole lives, and both were successful young professionals. Reiya was working as a legal aid, and Joseph was a young non-profit director. Her young life was incredibly healthy. She grew up in a great city with lots of family and friends around, they always attended church on Sundays, and A loved school even before she started kindergarten. Even more joy was brought into their lives when Arianna was born, Aaliyah’s younger sister who fast became one of her best friends.
The Edmonds lived in a predominantly black neighborhood for a majority of Aaliyah and Arianna’s young life, but more and more their surroundings were becoming gentrified. Aaliyah’s father became further interested in politics at this time. His foray into the political sphere inspired Aaliyah to pursue her own interests in social activism. She was one of the only girls she knew her age who actually paid attention to the news and not just her Instagram. Her passion for schoolwork made her parents very proud.
Having grown up in the city, Aaliyah could be described as street smart, but still, she made mistakes. Namely, one evening she had stayed too late at school and decided to just walk home instead of calling her parents for a ride. She was approached and followed by an older man who clearly had mal-intent. He turned the corner when she did. He crossed the street when she crossed. Heart pounding and ready to scream until her lungs burst the man closed in on her and grabbed her shoulders. It was then that it happened for the first time. Her eyes changed into a brilliant dark pink, and a ripping, crackling, sound was heard in front of and behind her. Next thing she knew two red, putrid, demons were clawing and kicking and screeching as they tore the man off of A. She ran down the street eyes streaming tears…and the little devils followed.
It didn’t occur to her at first that the demons were her own creation, thinking they were just terrorizing her, but then she willed them away. She made it home and relayed the incident to her family sans demons. They admonished her for being unsafe but were mostly just relieved she was home. That night she spent wide awake in bed, tears continually falling into her sheets, and it happened again. A loud crackle and the demons were in her room. She clenched her eyes shut, and they were gone. Aaliyah couldn’t help but shudder and shake as she realized she might be possessed by the devil himself. She couldn’t wrap her mind around what was happening.
The next morning she told her mother what happened. Reiya’s instinct was to bring her daughter to the hospital for a psychological evaluation, that was until Aaliyah’s distress made the demons appear again in the foyer. She quickly got her and Aaliyah into the car, and they made their way to the church. In the parking lot, they were intercepted by one Charles Xavier who came with an enticing explanation and offers to attend a new advanced school in New York.
