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’ 4”

Body Type: Looks frail and tired. Permanently hunched over in sleepiness.

Hair: Shaved head. Not completely bald like Greenbeard, but shaved pretty close. His head is covered is short black fuzz like a new Chia pet. Also he has some stubble growing in on his face.

Eyes: Gray-brown. Bloodshot from being open too often.

Race: Black

Age: 17

Attire: When Tyler stopped being able to sleep he also stopped caring about what he was wearing. Now it’s mostly sweatpants and hoodies all day and all night.

Superpowers: Consciousness (primary)- It is impossible for Tyler to be unconscious. He hasn’t slept since the concert, and even Camille can’t knock him out with her infallible knockout punch. Miraculously he is not on his way to losing his mind from exhaustion—as a matter of fact his powers make everything very clear to him. He is very aware. Sometimes he knows things he shouldn’t be able to know. Amelia observes there is something very weird going on with his subconscious. Her illusions don’t work on him.

Personality: Tyler is not looking for a fight. He can still feel pain and he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He’s had a lot of time to think lately and he knows that Crescent isn’t going to last the way it’s going now. So, he joins with the New Powers, but he sort of double-agents for The Band. He thinks Carlos is a little overenthusiastic and prefers the generally relaxed company of The Band.

Power source/backstory:

  1. Tyler was at The Band’s first concert, where overenthusiastic heroes killed a person disguised as a usually robotic police officer.

Theme Song: I Need Some Sleep- Eels
