So before I even begin I'll just say it would really help if you were at least familiar with the books by the wonderful Michael Grant, even if you only know the basic concept. If not I recommend you just look up a summary as this is a really cool concept. For the sake of this rp it will be set in the same location as the books, Perdido Beach and instead of everybody over the age of 15 vanishing were gonna raise it to 17. Its all going to be non cannon with none of the same characters as the books and will begin just as the FAZE wall goes up and all the adults vanish. Rules: Not too many here other than the usual roleplay stuff so please give that a look over if you haven't already. Other than that I will have to approve your character but dont worry im not harsh and try and keep the superpowers within reason. I'll place my characters bio below, when creating your own ensure you fill out all the same categories I did with mine. Thanks! Name: Jake Acker Age: 17 Height: 5ft 9 Gender: male Weight: 11 stone or about 40 stone when his powers become active. Physical appearance: Jake is a fairly average looking guy, average height, brown hair, brown eyes, kinda good looking but nothing crazy. His few defining features are his decent physique and a splattering of freckles on his face. He has the broad chest and shoulders of somebody who clearly does their fair share of exercise but that’s simply because he enjoys going mountain climbing. His brown hair is brushed over so the fringe goes to one side and is normally well kept. His eyes are a soft chocolate colour that is at odds with the hardness they actually have, which unintentionally gives him an almost intimidating air. Personality: Despite his upbringing Jake has managed to come out a kinda shy but friendly guy, unfortunately most people tend to avoid him due to the rumours about what his dad had done. He may be a nice guy but anybody who knows him will know he can be headstrong and stubborn and clearly has some issues that he carries with him. Has a soft spot for little kids and animals, and a real dislike for bullying. Particularly the physical kind. Clothing, at least before the event: Generally jeans, a simple t shirt of some description and a hoodie, simple but it worked for him. Backstory: Jake has limited memories of his mother. That is put rather crudely because she was murdered when he was at the tender age of 8. Luckily he hadn’t seen it happen but he had witnessed what led up to it, years of violence from his father, to him, to his mother, basically anybody who got in his way. Young Jake had broken more bones by the age of 6 than most had by 40, the doctors were always told he had been climbing and fell, he tried to lift something too heavy and of course they believed it, why wouldn’t they? In reality it had been his father every time. So when the cops came and took him away he was almost glad, he was free, finally, from his hell. After this he lived with his father’s own father, a kind old man who was broken by the news about what his son had done. Of course the rumours spread to school, nobody went near him, parents told their kids to leave him be and honestly he got used to it pretty fast. After a while it didn’t even bother him. Even all these years later he didn’t have many friends, although people didn’t fear him like they once did, just kind of avoided him. Power: Jakes skin is replaced by a layer of thick and heavily armoured metallic scales, his insides becoming just as reinforced. In this state he is pretty much immune to physical attacks but is heavily affected by things such as electricity. He also becomes much, much heavier and that has its own problems.
