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?

You decide.

Happy roleplaying!

    ---------------
    [Basic Stats]
    Full Name: Jean Elizabeth Grey
    Nickname(s): Jeannie, Red
    Alias(es): N/A
    Age: 17
    DOB: June 30, 1996

    Classification: Mutant
    Codename: --
    Alliance: X-Men
    Evo Canon, Comics Canon or Original: Evo Canon

    Place of residence: The Xavier Institute
    Occupation: Student
    Year in school: Junior

    [Appearance]

    Height: 5’8”
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Hair: Red
    Eyes: Green
    Skin: Fair

    Build: Jean has the lithe, athletic build of a young woman who engages in an intense regular exercise regimen, fitting a star soccer player. While she has a little more in the curves department than is altogether prudent for playing such a sport, there is hardly an ounce of fat on her body to speak of. Toned muscle makes up a good portion of her body weight.
    Dress: When not wearing her X-Man uniform, Jean prefers casual, but decidedly feminine clothing. Hip-hugging jeans and blouses or brightly colored T-shirts make up most of her wardrobe, with the occasional flowery skirt and cardigan in the mix.
    Other: --

    Play-By: Holland Roden

    [Psychological Profile]

    Likes: Soccer, the X-Men and what they stand for, hot chocolate with cinnamon on a very cold day, cats, anything spicy
    Dislikes: Impulsiveness, violence, not living up to her own expectations, horror films, most book-to-movie adaptations

    Goals: Learn to fully control her powers so that she no longer has need of the Professor’s mental blocks, live to see the day when mutants and humans can knowingly coexist in peace, ‘come out’ to her human friends and have them accept her, repair her relationship with her sister
    Fears: Losing control of her powers completely and hurting someone close to her, her peers finding out she’s a mutant and rejecting her, something happening to the professor, clowns

    Strengths: Confident, loyal, caring, intelligent
    Weaknesses: Stubborn, a little too willing to trust and give second chances even to those who might not deserve it, hot-headed, bit of a jealous streak

    Best subject: History
    Worst subject: French
    Extracurriculars: She was the star forward for her old high school’s soccer team, as well as on basketball and field hockey teams, and she was on the yearbook—things she fully intends to pick up again in Bayville.

    General Personality: Jean Grey is an incredibly empathetic young woman--that is likely to be one of the first things anyone noticed upon meeting her. She has an exceptional ability to understand others, to connect on an emotional level even to people she’s never met before. Of course, part of this could be attributed to her telepathic abilities, but even when she was a child she had an exceptional talent for being able to read people and say the right thing. (I believe that is known as tact? Which Jean has in spades.) It also helps that, generally speaking, Jean is a very personable, approachable young woman. She exudes an air of confidence and yet also of kindness--while she is very popular at school, that popularity has never gone to her head, so to speak. Rather, she sees it as a humbling experience, and strives to deserve the praise she gets from her peers.

    No one is perfect, though, and Jean is no exception. Her bubbly, confident outward persona is only the tip of the iceberg, and while it is a true part of her, it is not the only part. There is most definitely a temper that lurks beneath the surface--while she does her best to keep her emotions under control, especially given her powers and their tendency to react when she is upset, it is not that difficult to anger her. She won’t fly off the handle on a whim, but if you push the right buttons, you’d best head her off early, before those sparks of anger lead to a blazing inferno. It may take some doing to get her truly angry, but there are times when anger is a safe mask to hide behind--especially when being confronted with things she does not wish to acknowledge. (For a telepath Jean can be remarkably dense about her own feelings.)

    It must also be mentioned that Jean can be incredibly stubborn, and there is a jealous streak lurking beneath the surface which she doesn’t like to admit exists. (Again, stubborn.) If ever Jean has set her mind to something, there is very little that can dissuade her from doing absolutely everything in her power to complete the goal. Such strong will might seem admirable at first glance, but it does leave her with a tendency to dig in her heels, as it were, especially when it comes to aspects of her personal life. (No means no, and whether wrong or right, trying to push her into changing the no to a yes will only serve to irritate her.)

    Laying everything else aside, Jean is still a teenage girl. She had a lot more to deal with than most girls her age once she hit puberty, and she has some deep-seated insecurities about herself, her place with the X-Men, even her powers and her social position at school, which are very difficult to overcome even for the most well-adjusted of teens. Jean does the best she can with what she has, however, refusing to accept anything less than the best from herself, even if it means pushing herself farther than she probably should.

    But hey, that’s high school.

    [Abilities]

    Mutant Power(s): Telepathy: Telepathy, on its face, is a fairly simple power to explain. Jean can read the thoughts of another's mind, and manipulate them to a degree, though she is not skilled in this area yet. With the limitations imposed upon her by the Professor’s mental blocks, Jean has the power to skim the thoughts of everyone around her, within a fifteen-foot radius, though she can (and usually does) put a damper of sorts on her power, keeping her mind from being assaulted by the thoughts of everyone within fifteen feet of her—without blanketing her telepathy, Jean hears the thoughts as a matter of course, as she does not need to concentrate to be able to hear the surface thoughts of those close to her. Jean can also block her mind, rendering her thoughts inaccessible to other telepaths—she tries to have her block up constantly, as she detests the idea of people skimming her thoughts without her knowledge or consent. However, in order to hear any thoughts outside those at the surface of someone's mind, she would have to concentrate to probe deeper; eye contact, while not essential, allows her to go deeper than if she simply follows a mental signature, without the subject in her sight. With the blocks in place, Jean is only capable of in-depth communication with one person at a time—she can broadcast telepathic messages, but she won’t be able to hear the response unless she is focused on that specific mind at the time.

    In general, telepathically communicating with another person becomes easier the longer she has known him/her and the more familiar she is with the mind in question. As well, the more familiar she is with a mind, the easier it is for her to manipulate, though overall she is not very skilled with this aspect of her telepathy--it is something that, with time and experience, she could learn to harness, though her moral compunctions against doing so will likely hinder her progress here.

    One major downside to her telepathy are the headaches--particularly evident if she opens her mind around too many people at once. If she overextends her telepathy, particularly if she pushes too hard against the mental blocks, the headaches can become a migraine, and she could even black out if she kept it up.

    Telekinesis: Simply put, telekinesis is the ability to move objects using only the power of one’s mind. The full extent of Jean’s true telekinetic power is unknown; with the block, Jean’s power is significantly hampered—she can only manipulate up to five hundred pounds comfortably, beyond that she begins to strain against the blocks in place and risks the potential psionic backlash. She has an easier time manipulating objects she could comfortably carry, and is capable of the concentration necessary to, say, write without actually holding the pencil. Jean can levitate herself and one or two other people—more than that runs the risk of being too much weight and she won’t be able to hold them for as long. As well, Jean can create telekinetic shields with her energy (though she cannot keep them up for very long if under heavy attack) which she can extend to cover a group of six people relatively close to her--if she tries for a bigger shield it would become weaker and easier to break though, and if something breaks through one of her shields, the psionic feedback could quite possibly knock her out. She can create concussive bursts with her telekinetic energy, blasting small obstacles out of her way and knocking back attackers, possibly stunning them.

    Like any muscle, Jean’s telekinesis requires practice and ‘exercise’, if you will--the more she uses it, the more she will be able to get out of it. Even with the mental blocks in place, it is not inconceivable that she will eventually be able to lift more people or heavier objects with relative ease.

    As with her telepathy, overexerting her telekinesis results in headaches that range in severity depending on how much of her energy she expels. In addition, attempting to utilize too much of her psionic energy at once (for example, maintaining a shield at strength over a greater area or even a smaller shield under a powerful attack) can cause harm to her, resulting in nose bleeds, unconsciousness, and even physical illness if she is not careful. As well, Jean’s telekinesis is exceptionally tied to her emotions--when she is experiencing exceptional emotional upheaval, especially anger or grief, anything not bolted to the ground will tend to go flying.

    Biggest Drawback(s): The biggest drawbacks to Jean’s powers are the mental blocks set in place by the Professor, and the fact that they were necessary in the first place because Jean had so much raw power that it could very well have consumed her entirely if her access to it was not severely limited.

    Non-mutant power(s): Jean is an exceptional athlete--soccer is by far her best sport, but she is also very good at basketball and field hockey, and she is a decent swimmer.

    [Background Check]

    Hometown: Bayville, New York
    Birthplace: Annandale-on-Hudson, New York
    Family: Professor John Grey (father); Elaine Grey (mother); Sara Grey (older sister)

    Criminal Record: None

    History: It was a bright and warm summer’s day when John and Elaine Grey welcomed a new addition to their family. They already had one daughter, Sara, who was three years old at the time, but Elaine had always had her heart set on two, and Jean was seen as a blessing.

    Jean’s childhood passed normally enough, though an unfortunate incident with a clown at her fifth birthday party left her scared of clowns for life. She met all the normal milestones for a developing child--walking, talking, climbing on things and then nearly shaking the house down with her wailing when she inevitably fell and hurt herself. She did begin reading at the early age of three and a half (and by the fifth grade was reading at the high school level), though her father, a history professor, probably had something to do with that. (He also instilled in her a deep and abiding love for his subject of choice.) She got along splendidly with her older sister, who protected her from playground bullies when she started school and they began bothering her. It wasn’t until the age of ten that anything out of the ordinary occurred in her life, and it turned her entire world upside down.

    Jean and her best friend at the time, Annie Richardson, were playing an innocent game of hopscotch. Given the fact that they lived in upper-middle class suburbia, the residential streets were not particularly hazardous, with cars moving slow enough to stop and allow any children present to get out of the way. Neither girl was expecting the car that came racing around the corner, going much faster than any of the posted speed limits. Jean was able to get out of the way in time--Annie wasn’t. And as the car sped away (later, the driver was caught blowing through a red light, but Jean never learned anything else) Jean tried to pull her friend’s limp body out of the street so she could go for help. It was at that moment that Jean’s telepathy manifested, linking her mind with Annie’s as the young girl died. Feeling every emotion her best friend felt as she slipped away left a mark on Jean, and for nearly a year following the incident, Jean withdrew into herself, wallowing in depression no one should have to feel, let alone a ten-year-old.

    Another reason for Jean’s sudden withdrawal from everyone, even her parents, was her inability to control her telepathy. She was hearing the thoughts of everyone around her and the only way to get the voices to just leave her alone was to hole herself in her room and focus very hard on nothingness. A string of therapists over that year could do nothing for the girl—about a year later, however, she met a man named Charles Xavier, who seemed to have an uncanny insight into the peculiar ‘problem’ that was plaguing her. Professor Xavier was a telepath, like Jean, and for the first time in a year Jean’s head finally felt like her own again, and that very first session he helped teach her how to put up a mental block of her own, to keep the thoughts of others at bay.

    Xavier spent a year meeting Jean for monthly sessions, and in that time he taught her to control her telepathy and managed to help her come to terms with the death of her friend and the lasting impact it’d had on her. Once he felt she was sufficiently capable of taking care of her own mental needs, he went back upstate, leaving her with his card should she have need of his help again.

    As it happened, Jean’s mutation wasn’t even close to full maturation. When she was thirteen, Jean’s telekinesis manifested rather violently, though thankfully it was during summer vacation and she was home at the time, not out in public (though she accidentally caused quite a bit of damage to her bedroom… and the kitchen, and the dining room, and…). The sheer strength and raw power she exhibited then was enough to disrupt the psychic plane on a level that reached the professor halfway across the state, and he was there hours later, to no one’s great surprise—after a thorough scan of Jean’s mind, he came to the conclusion that her powers were progressing much too rapidly (her telepathy had likewise been getting out of hand, though she had put it down to a bad case of the flu at the time) and, if left unchecked, they might destroy her before she learned to control them. So Xavier cordoned off her mind, blocking her access to the majority of her raw power, until such time as she had matured enough to be able to safely deal with them.

    In truth, Jean was relieved at no longer feeling the burden of the power that had been lurking at the back of her mind, waiting to be released—especially since she was about to head into high school, and puberty was hard enough to navigate without worrying that she might punch through the wall when all she wanted was to pick up a pencil without having to get up.

    High school itself was a new experience. At first, being around so many minds pressing at her own mental barriers was difficult, but with a little help from a few more sessions with the professor, Jean quickly adapted. Having always loved sports, soccer especially, Jean took a chance when she saw that there would be tryouts for the soccer team, and she made it with flying colors--one of very few Freshman to make the team on her first try. After that, and in large part thanks to her open, generous nature and all-around kindness, Jean’s popularity--not just with the ‘popular crowd’, but with just about anyone who knew her--was practically assured.

    Halfway through her junior year, though, she experienced another growth spurt—of the psionic variety. The mental blocks the professor had placed on her four years earlier seemed to be weakening against the growth of her power, and this time, he had a different answer. Her parents, helpless to do anything to help their youngest daughter but watch, couldn’t argue against the logic that Professor Xavier presented them with, when he suggested that Jean move to his mansion in Bayville. He had already begun collecting students, young mutants who needed help controlling their powers and learning to blend in, and on hearing this Jean wanted to go. The only other mutant she’d known was the professor, and the thought of having friends her own age who truly understood what she was going through, and who perhaps wouldn’t be as scared of her as her own sister was (though Sara tried to hide it, her thoughts were never far from Jean’s mind, even when she tried to shut them out) was more enticing than anything else.

    So, on January 31st, Jean arrived at the X-Mansion, ready to begin a new chapter in her life.

    Time Zone: PST (GMT -8)

    Preferred character audition scene: Jean’s powers beginning to overwhelm the mental blocks put in place by the professor. Vouched for as a returning member.
    Plans or plots you would like to involve your character in: I would like to start off exploring Jean’s role as sort of the ‘mother’ of the group, looking after the younger students and trying to keep everyone out of trouble and out of the public eye. At some point, however, I would love to play through her powers growing in strength and perhaps even some approximation of the Dark Phoenix Saga in the distant future.

Grace! Welcome back to XUE! Super stoked to write with you again. Please address the following and you should be good to go. You won't need to complete a character audition scene since you're a former member, though you are free to play out the scene you've chosen in the game once you're approved.

ABILITIES:
    QUOTE
    Her telepathy also allows her to 'communicate', if you will, with animals of very high intelligence (such as dolphins and dogs), though at present it is very difficult for Jean to reach the level of focus and concentration that would allow her to do so


  • Please remove this. Despite what Jean has been known to accomplish in the comics, we feel animals do not communicate in the same way humans do. Perhaps her telepathy allows her to get a better read on their emotions, but that's sort of a different power completely (animal empathy).

    QUOTE
    she has her block up constantly


  • "Tries to have her block up constantly" would be more appropriate, to ensure Jean's powers have limits.

    QUOTE
    Through training Jean is minorly skilled in hand to hand combat, though she prefers to use her powers in a battle situation.


  • Please remove this. Jean hasn't arrived at the Institute yet and, therefore, has not yet received any formal or even informal training in combat (as far as we're aware).


BACKGROUND CHECK:
  • Elain should be Elaine.

    QUOTE
    A string of therapists over that year could do nothing for the girl, until finally, one of them recommended a man named Charles Xavier, a frontrunner of the field


  • Xavier isn't a therapist. He wouldn't have been recommended. His powers or the powers of Destiny (via one of her visions) could have located her, though. I'd go with the Destiny idea, though you do not have to specify since Jean would have no knowledge of her.

    QUOTE
    Xavier spent a year meeting Jean for weekly


  • We'd prefer it to be monthly. Weekly would imply excessive dedication, and in our timeline Charles had other things going on.

    QUOTE
    The sheer strength and raw power she exhibited then registered like a beacon on Cerebro, and he was there hours later


  • Cerebro wasn't created yet (it was created recently). However, I'm okay with the Professor being able to sense a major shift in the psychic plane or something.

    QUOTE
    Her parents, helpless to do anything to help their youngest daughter but watch, couldn’t argue with the logic that Professor Xavier presented them with, when he suggested that Jean move to his mansion in Bayville

  • It was previously stated (in the Goals section) that her parents do not know she's a mutant, but here you write they do. Please clarify.

That's it for now. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks!

I've made the requested edits!

A couple were things I hadn't thought to look for and change after altering my app the first time. I edited the abilities accordingly, and I took out the mentions of her family from the goals/fears, since with the altered history it wouldn't make sense for them not to know, considering how violently her telekinesis manifested. (It also provided something to run with in the future, given that I mentioned in her history that her sister is afraid of her.)

If there was anything I missed or anything else you'd like changed, just let me know!
