Universe/Storyline: The Band

Universe details: In the isolated city of Crescent where these characters live, superpowers spring from close encounters with death. Only people born in the city can gain these powers, and since this is a relatively new settlement, the first generation of people born there are just starting to show signs of super-fication. This means mostly kids and teens. Of the teens, Camille, Max, Amelia, Walter, and Rin decide to team up and form a band. They take it upon themselves to help other kids who are just getting powers/dealing with death. Eventually, when The Band realizes that everyone deserves to be informed about the city’s unique predicament, they try to reach every kid in the city at once by putting on a live concert.

Height: 5’ 5”

Body Type: Slim but muscular

Hair: Long, brown with hints of blonde and bushy/curly

Eyes: Hazel

Race: White

Age: ?? looks and acts like 19 or 20

Attire: Camille wears a skin-tight red body suit that resembles a one-piece bathing suit or leotard with long or no sleeves depending on mood or weather. She also wears a black short pleated skirt, black combat boots and white knee-high socks with two red and one yellow stripe around the top. Accessories include yellow fingerless knit gloves, a brown belt with pockets on it, and brown leather motorcycle goggles with highly tinted yellow lenses. Sometimes she also wears a yellow scarf tied in a knot around her neck to keep it from flying off. The goggles can be worn over the eyes or on top of the head like a headband for her hair.

Superpowers: Super speed, Mostly Conscious (primary)- Both Camille’s physical and mental speed can be enhanced with concentration, the side effect being proportional wear on the body or brain after extended use. Camille has to keep her energy levels high in order to compensate for her abilities, so she can be found eating almost constantly. Sometimes when Camille experiences a rush of adrenaline or imbibes an excessive amount of stimulants like caffeine she involuntarily goes into what she calls a “head rush,” during which she thinks at up to 20 times normal human speed, making the world look like it’s moving in slow motion. Often she comes out of these head rushes in a coma-like state because the overuse of her brain causes a fever and subsequently some brain damage. The coma can last anywhere from hours to days. Thankfully Camille also heals faster than most people without thinking, so she can come out of these comas without any permanent side effects.

Super Strength, Conscious and Subconscious- Making not just muscle but all bodily tissue resilient and powerful to a high degree, Camille’s strength makes her impenetrable to almost any attack, and also lets her use her super speed with reduced physical or mental side effects. She also packs quite a brutal (and precise) punch, which she uses to knockout foes with one blow every time.

Personality: The leader of The Band, she is incredibly sharp and in control. She reacts quickly in all situations, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t think things through; it just takes her less time to do so. She is kind-hearted and extremely trusting, mostly because of her belief that there is a good side to everyone. She fears nothing except failing her friends and teammates. However, she also worries that she might have a dark side. Her will is as strong as her muscular body, so she is able to keep her more frightening dark urges in check for the most part.

Power sources/Backstory:

a.      Speed- Camille’s mother was killed giving birth to her, so Camille was born fast.

b.      Strength- Camille is sent to the hospital at 4 or 5 years old, but looking her current age, with a worn out heart. She’s grown up fast, and her heart is unable to bear the strain. When the doctors tell her father she’s comatose and dying, he takes her hand. Camille jerks out of her coma with super strength. She accidentally crushes her father’s hand. She never sees him again.

Theme Song: Day ‘n’ Nite- Kid Cudi ~I try to run but see I’m not that fast. I think I’m first but surely finish last…. last.~
