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?

General Personality: Germaine is a bit full of himself, completely and utterly convinced he’s capable of doing anything he sets his mind to. He doesn’t like losing or showing weakness of any kind. Does he have a superiority complex? Absolutely. You can blame Pa, who had always been more like a strict coach than a father, raising or rather training him to be “the best.” Because of his need to be on top, it’s no surprise he has come to love his mutant powers, despite often not being able to control them.
So much confidence and competitiveness in one body can only lead to one thing: impulsiveness. If there is one weakness Ger will admit to, it is his inability to stand on the sidelines, even if it means putting himself or others in danger. This makes him prone to acting on whims and emotions, anger especially. Never one to “think it through,” some would call him a meathead. He prefers the term "hothead."
A redeeming trait is Ger’s sense of responsibility. Forced to work at a young age to help support his family on top of school and soccer practice, Ger grew to become reliable, organized and relatively good at taking orders for the greater good. Relatively.
Mutant Power(s): Germaine possesses the ability to cause objects within his immediate vicinity – and even the air itself – to suddenly burst into flames. Although he remains unaware of the science behind his powers, he accomplishes this by psionically accelerating the speed of oxygen molecules, thereby increasing the amount of friction and heat in a localized area until combustion occurs. By using this ability in reverse, Germaine is capable of slowing down oxygen molecules around an object so as to snuff out flame. However, that is all he can do with the fire he creates, virtually unable to "bend" it to his will no matter how hard he concentrates (or asks nicely). As an oxikinetic, he can only create and destroy fire, not control it (much to his dismay).
As far as the mechanics behind Germaine's "flame powers" (as he likes to call them) go, proximity matters a great deal. For example, Ger would have little trouble lighting up an object several feet away from him, but a few several yards? Next-to-impossible. Size matters, too. The bigger the flame he wishes to generate and/or extinguish, the more concentration and energy is needed and the more likely he is to collapse due to the mental and physical strain. Trying to use his powers on less flammable objects, such as glass or the air, also takes a lot out of him, as a constant flow of energy and concentration would be needed to keep the fire burning. Lastly, blindfolds or light-based attacks to the eyes would prove highly effective against Germaine, since he needs to be able to physically see in order to successfully target objects.
Biggest Drawback(s): Currently, Germaine's greatest limitation is derived from the fact they are very tightly tied to his emotions. Being a short tempered, hormonal teenage boy doesn't help. This means even the smallest fluctuation in mood could potentially result in the "spontaneous combustion" of his surroundings, thereby making him a constant danger to not only others, but also himself. That's another thing: Ger is by no means immune to the fire he creates, making him just as squishy, vulnerable and flammable as the next human. For this reason, he has to be especially careful when it comes to starting fires close to his body. He has burn marks on the palms of his hands to prove it.
Non-mutant power(s): Germaine is a highly skilled soccer player and hopes to go pro one day. That is, if they get rid of that stupid law that says mutants can't play sports. He's also fluent in Italian and can cook very, very well.
Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Birthplace: Sicily, Italy
Family: Rita and Gianni Caruso (parents), Ricky and Joey Caruso (younger brothers)
Criminal Record: No
History: Germaine and his family immigrated to the Chicago, Illinois from Sicilia, Italia when he was only five years old. Doted on by his parents, he was a happy child who wanted nothing more than to follow in the footsteps of his father by becoming a professional soccer player. However, as he grew older, the man who he affectionately called Pa became more of a drill sergeant than a father, personally training Ger day in and day out and harshly reprimanding him whenever he made a mistake or lost a game.
So focused on soccer, Ger wasn’t the greatest student in school, getting consistently low grades in every class but gym. The arrival of two younger brothers, Ricky and Joey, and being forced to help around his family's restaurant (Caruso's Pizza) as a busboy/waiter/slave to save the family money did not help either, causing him a significant amount of stress.
When he was fifteen, his mutation manifested. Ever the "lucky one," it happened during the championship game in his second year of high school… in front of everyone.
With only a couple of minutes left on the clock and his dad watching from the stands, he had never felt so much pressure in his life as he dribbled the ball down the field. And then a defender got in his way, a surprisingly good one. Unable to shake him, Ger started to get nervous and then the craziest thing happened: the defender's shirt caught fire, causing him to back off for long enough for Ger to take a shot on goal... and score! Not that anyone had been paying attention to anything other than the flaming boy, who was in a panic, idiotically flailing his arms around instead of doing the obvious: stop, drop and roll.
No one could explain what had happened. According to the news, “spontaneous combustion” was said to be the official cause; others accused him of being the spawn of Satan. Ger laughed in their faces, flat-out denying their outlandish claims, at first. Then, little by little, he started to believe them, as more similar incidents started occurring around him. In his room. In class. At his parents' restaurant…
Not too long after, there was a suspicious knock on his door that would forever change his life. His parents were still at work at the time, and so were his brothers. He would have been working, too, if he was less of a walking fire hazard. Either way, the last thing he expected was to be greeted by a caped man who wore a strange-looking helment and called himself Magneto. What he was selling, however, was of particular interest to Germaine: the opportunity to learn to control his "flame powers" and put them to good use alongside others like him – other "mutants." It was the only way he could ever hope to lead a normal life in the future. And so, without giving it any further thought, he packed his bags, wrote a good-bye letter to his family, and moved to Bayville, New York to join Magneto's "Brotherhood of Mutants."
