Name Florence ‘Flo’ Allegra Bianchi-Lynch. She goes by Flo Lynch.Age 16, born March 14thGenderFemalePower/Weakness There’s something in the manner of this girl that compels people to be completely and utterly honest around her. This honesty isn’t only limited to lying – if she looks one in the eye, they will reveal any surprise they’ve been planning, any disguise – overall anything that isn’t the truth. In order to gauge more than conversation without lies (disguise, etc), she must be looking the person she wishes to interrogate in the eye and will them to. She’s only recently developed this limit on her power by herself – when she was younger the only thing she could do to stop the babble of nonstop, honest conversation, was to walk away. Not only is it impossible to lie around Flo, it’s impossible for her to lie herself. Of course, it renders her a completely honest person, but it is dangerous. No information is safe around her, and this horrible truth is depressing to the girl. It’s hard to figure out sometimes, whether this power is a blessing or a curse.Personality and History Born to an Italian mother and an Irish father (Lucia and Ian respectively), Flo’s parents were enchanted by the sweetly smiling blue-eyed baby. That is, of course, until her powers began to develop – this happened within half a year, by the time she could talk. Her parents began having abrupt marital and legal issues: they were each having separate affairs; Ian was embezzling money from Lucia’s father’s bank company, for which he worked for. The illusion of a happy family came crashing down around the poor baby’s head. Soon enough her newly divorced parents realized that they couldn’t lie at all when their child was in the room. This honesty revolting, they sent away the now four-year-old Flo to a boarding school in Scotland. As a result she has a faint twinge of a Scottish accent. The children there were at first attracted by her charming features and elfin smile, but because of her powers, she became an unwilling tattle-tale and was bullied on and neglected, excluded from any activity. This behaviour continued until she was thirteen years old when her physics teacher, interested by her uncanny genius (she solves math and science problems with a nearly frightening ease) called her to his lab in London to take some tests. During the winter break, tests were done on her brain. They were innocent at first, but an abnormally high amount of activity in a certain area of her cerebral cortex alerted her teacher, Mr. Kinston, to her power. Suddenly Flo was pulled out of boarding school and kidnapped by Kinston, where a number of unspeakably terrifying tests were done on the poor girl. Electrocution and various other methods of torture were inflicted on her to see how high her brain activity got. She lived like this for nearly two years. When she turned fifteen, the laboratory experimenting on her declared bankruptcy and had no money for their experiments anymore. She was to be transported to a second testing area but escaped in the process. Living as a street rat for nearly a year, Florence (who hadn’t spoken for an entire year out of trauma) was finally brought to Haven just shy of her sixteenth birthday. She is therefore new at Haven, her powers newly adjusting. Although a very sweet girl, Florence’s formerly secure and naive view on humanity has been completely and utterly shaken. This naive side of her still surfaces sometimes. Otherwise she has become a very shy and soft-spoken girl who naturally detests herself and her curse of a power. She has an inkling that when her powers progress, they may lead to a certain telepathic mind-reading power, and is so reluctant to hone them. Even though her honesty powers give her the truth of every situation (or what, at least, the person thinks is the truth) Flo generally has trust issues, but she succumbs to sudden bouts of naiveté. Appearance Soft, slightly curling chocolate-brown hair, streaked honey-blonde in some places because of exposure to the sun, falls to Flo’s mid-back. With a face that simply sparkles with innocence when smiling. Her pointed chin, slanted eyes and even slightly pointed ear tips, give her an elfin mischief. Eyes of a strange exact balance between blue, grey, and green, they change colour often according to lighting. Flo is frail for now, rather underweight from starvation, and doesn’t have much of a high cardio, though with exercise she’ll show she has a surprising, wiry strength. She’s rather tall – five foot ten – but doesn’t have the weight to fill out her slender little curves like she used to. Flo’s never worn make-up in her life and doesn’t much like the concept of it.Something she'd wear:[image error]Other Since her time at the laboratory, Flo’s terrified of electricity and stays as far away from outlets as she can. She’s happiest by the water. When she falls to depression she likes to turn on the tap and just hang her head by the sink, listening to the running water. She’s also uncannily quick at solving math problems and knows a lot of physics, but detests doing them ever since her kidnapping.Relationships*Ember - Roommate and friend.*Trace - Musical companion.*Jess - It's complicated.
Name Mathias (Matt) TengerAge 18, born June 23rdGender MalePower/Weakness Mathias is a sort of telekinetic. It began with him being able to control objects at a young age – move them very quickly or very slowly across table surfaces. With his extended time at Haven, however, his powers have become very powerful indeed. He can now manipulate energy - the buoyancy of water, the lift of air, as well as control objects no matter what speed they are moving at. This gives him the ability to perform dangerous stunts. Examples of this are falling off of buildings and manipulating the air lift to make him fall slowly - even soften the ground (but to a certain degree) so the fall doesn’t hurt; walk on water; stop a bullet in mid-air. He is now working on opening wormholes through space, though this is a very erratic and dangerous ability. It is manipulating light energy so he can move faster than it. Mathias’ wormholes open only when his energy is at its full, for it depletes him almost completely, and he has no control over where his wormholes take him. He also can’t control the energy of people – only matter and objects. Mathias gets tired easily if he has to hold his power for a long time as it works best in split-second instances.Personality and History Having been raised by his father, Sven Tanger, who worked in a gas station and was an illegal immigrant from Switzerland, Mathias has a first-to-survive trait that still surfaces even in the safety of Haven. Sven soon realized that his son was different: a very fast reaction rate, extremely impulsive. One night he woke to a scraping in the nursery which turned out to be Mathias’ crib moving about the room, all on its own. He took the child to a priest to perform an exorcism. Mathias ran away at the age of eleven as his father was an alcoholic with anger management issues, something Mathias has half-inherited. Thankfully, a mysterious but kindly elderly woman took him to her home – Haven – and he’s grown up honing his abilities ever since.Although Mathias isn’t book smart, he always had an incredible reaction rate – less than 0.1 of a second, nearly inhuman. This gives him the ability to be clever and sly, never missing a beat when talking to someone, never thinking twice about doing something before he does. Never thinking at all, really, and this is much of a weakness: his motto is act first, ask questions later (or not at all). He’s a daredevil by nature and this is enhanced by the stunts he can do. He’s touched with a small case of arrogance; he’s been at Haven the longest, and he pretends to be completely confident in his power, although he truly isn’t.Mathias makes friends with stunning ease; most are attracted to his confidence and sure-fire ways. He’s witty, confident, a prankster and always just a touch cocky: your quintessential badboy. Appearance Strong, rugged features – a straight Roman nose, chiselled cheekbones, sculpted chin. His eyes are a luminous blue, bright and deep-set. Since shaving his head at age 12, he’s paid careful attention to his hair, growing it long on top but shorter on the sides, then combing it forward, like a modern version of a 1960’s English hipster. Straight eyebrows set above his eyes give him a look that seems like he’s always brooding, but when he smiles, it’s like a sunrise. And then his mouth contrasts against the rugged features. It’s full, pretty, even, and he’s horribly aware of this, always thinning his lips to look more aggressive. Tall – at last measurement, he was six foot four, though he’s still growing - with a fit body, he likes to keep in shape by running and lifting weights. He’s also an avid basketball player. Mathias has three piercings in his left ear (not shown in pictures): three joined hoops on his cartilage, a stud in the inner part of the ear, and a hoop in the earlobe. Other As well as vigorous physical activity, Mathias enjoys playing sudden and unplanned pranks on people, which suits his dry, quick humour. He’s known to be quite a bad-ass at camp, always doing insane stunts, turning his powers on at the last possible second.For the LOLs.Relationships*Jess - Roommate.*Sydnee - Saved her from the FBI when she was younger; neither know who exactly the other is.

Name Solange VogelAge 17, born December 21Gender FemalePower/Weakness Astral Projection: able to dismiss her spirit from her body. Able to separate her consciousness from her corporeal mass – while her physical presence goes under a trance, Solange concentrates her consciousness into a spiritual form which allows her to travel anywhere on the Astral Plane, changing shape and form as she pleases. This gives her supreme levels of insight as well as allowing her to explore more aspects of everyone’s personality. She can drop by on dreams and daydreams but not change them. Her powers in the Astral Plane are merely those of observation. This gives her the objective power of being able to enter someone else’s physical body and even possess them. Upon contact her powers extend to others as well. This is to say that if she touches someone, she can dispel their consciousness with hers so the two travel together in the plane.Solange’s physical body is completely vulnerable while she is travelling in her astral form, unless she chooses to divide her concentration and have some of her consciousness left in her physical body while the rest is travelling on the Plane. This weakens her greatly, however, and divides her concentration. If her body is harmed or even killed while she is in her spirit form, the only way for her to survive is to take control of someone else’s body and dispel their consciousness.Appearance Small in stature, Solange takes over in her mysterious demeanour completely. Her mouth is in a permanent pout, usually coloured in with fire-engine-red lipstick, her long, streaked blonde hair arranged messily and carelessly in disarray. Limbs birchlike, long and frail, she seems as if she’ll float away at any moment. Her head is tilted contemplatively nearly all the time. She’s never to be seen outside without oversized sunglasses on of some sort – these hide dreamy blue eyes and tangled blonde lashes. Nails coloured in all sorts of neon colours, with clothes that could make the cover of several magazines (hippie-chic), Solange looks for all the world a glamour girl.Personality Friends with no one and everyone. Solange is content to come and go as she pleases, an independent soul. Converse with her and her dreamy French-accented voice will show that she is much more intelligent than she appears to be. She thinks of things that one who has not experienced Astral Projection would never dream of – spiritual philosophies, new methods of thinking, the vastness of space. She’s a walking mystery, shrouded in enigma. Always on a different level than the inhabitants at Haven, it’s a mystery as to what she’s thinking though she insists she is open about it. Great deals of courage and insight would be needed to become close to the girl.History Born in Nice, France, Solange lived with her grandmere Auguste (a domineering, powerful woman) who was the editor of a fashion magazine after her parents lost custody of her at age two. Living alone in the massive house, styled after Versailles, did not seem to bother or faze Solange in the slightest. As a child she never cried or threw temper tantrums; always very quiet and observant, she was perfectly behaved and Auguste felt quite capable of leaving the child alone at home when at work or running errands. This all came to an abrupt end when Auguste returned home after a two-week vacation to find that twelve-year-old Solange was not, in fact, at home. When she demanded to know where her granddaughter had vanished to, the servants replied that they had thought her with her grandmother. After an extensive search throughout the city, they found Solange’s comatose body in the basement of a deserted apartment building in Paris. Brought to the hospital, she regained consciousness two days later and, much to her grandmother’s frustration, refused to explain why or how she had gotten to be there. A tracker bracelet was attached to the girl for her own safety.From then on Solange kept disappearing from home at random intervals – found ingesting illegal substances (to ‘experiment’, she explained, to her horror-struck grandmother); sleeping in stranger’s beds; simply wandering around in the countryside. Eventually Auguste decided that a visit to a therapist would not be out of the question. Solange calmly explained to the doctor that she had had strange out-of-body experiences and had even ‘possessed’ a thirty-year-old man by accident.“Not to worry,” the fourteen-year-old girl said, her expression as serene as the face of a calm lake, “it can be attained through a high level of meditation, according to the Buddhist monks. It’s perfectly normal.”After numerous sessions, the doctor realized what exactly Solange’s problem was. The therapist reported this strange occurrence to a contact who worked for the DST (Département de la Sûreté Territoriale, French equivalent of the FBI), who was in turn was put in touch with Auguste. Extremely worried for her daughter’s welfare, the woman was ensured that Solange would be ‘cured’ of her ‘hallucinatory’ occurrences as well as put into military camp for discipline that the girl surely lacked. For two months Solange was enrolled in a military youth program, before, thanks to her Astral powers, she found out what exactly waited for her at the end of the semester. Not wanting to wait around for a trap, Solange ordered all of her possessions to be transported to Haven (a place she encountered in her astral form, while inhabiting the body of a DST agent) thus having lived there for two years.OtherRelationships
Name: Eveline "Eve" Charlotte Kristofferson (Echo)Age: 17Power/Weakness: She can create ghostly duplicates of herself. These duplicates mimic her every movement and are at her mercy. She can make them appearas far as a few miles; any farther it drains her energy. They can be seen by everyone (though they are transparent), and these duplicates may appear in a dream, which enables her to be in the Dreamzone as she pleases. However, to be able to send her duplicates during a dream she must also be asleep too.Sometimes these copies appear unconsciously around her, especially when she is very concentrated. She can create up to six; any more they drain her energy.Personality and History: Eveline's real name was Evangeline, to be shortened up in the years to come to Eveline. Eveline Kistrofferson was born in New Zealand as an only child. Her early childhood was never normal, in a way. She has always had a certain talent towards gymnastics and skating, and her ecstatic father, who was an Olympic coach, agreed to help her get to the Olympic when she was old enough to enter. Thus, she dropped out of school and her parents hired a tutor to teach her as she went through harsh training. By the time she was twelve, she had been winner of several medals and trophies for various competitions all over the world, most from her own country. She knew ballet, gymnastics, figure skating of all kinds. She was almost at the pinnacle of her career when she was fifteen, because she was about to enter the Olympics.It was when she was ten that she started to use her powers. She noticed that sometimes when she trained, there were identical images of her around her. Vy eleven she could senf them all around her house to try to fool people, although she noticed they were sort of phantom, so people weren't ricked. Her parents noticed, although they didn't care much; they just hoped it wouldn't affect her training.They accepted it and never talked about it.But by 15 she was eager to enter society more, and her parents were extremely strict with even going out of the house. New Zealand was not as peaceful as it looked. And right they were, because slowly Eveline learned how New Zealand was a source country for human trafficking, and even though New Zealanders weren't the victims, if anyone closed in the slavers they were soon snuffed out. And in one wild party, she met a real-life victim. She inmediately called the police to help the victim, and closely after the traffickers marked her as a target.But these guys were smart. They knew Eveline was a very potential specimen--she could be shipped off as a prostitute, or maybe held for ransom. But when one of the workers went to see her while she trained in a public rink, he actually saw a glimpse of her duplicates, and the traffickers were overjoyed. They knew that people with powers could be sold off to very succesful circuses or millionaires for more than the average 90$.She was promptly kidnapped in a party and sent to a brothel, where she temporarily awaited her destiny. Then she was sent by plane to an unknown Asiatic destination, but the pilot was bribed to take her to Haven Lake.Eveline has always regretted her desicion to ignore her parents and bitterly mourned her freedom as she realized she was no longer the same, although she still aspires to become and Olympic athlete. However, she is very thankful that she was not raped at the brothel, and that the pilot left her at Haven Home, where she enjoys free life once again. Eveline is very positive in that sense, because she is very thankful she wasn't harmed and enjoys life in a whole new persepective.Appearance:She has shoulder-lenght brown hair in very slight curls, often curling it at the neck. It's always tied up when she's practicing. She has a sympathetic look on her face when you meet her. She's tall for her age (5'9") and she had that slim elegant look. Her clear blue eyes seem milky and distant at first. Other: She's been a month at Haven, where she continues to practice gymnastics and figure skating. She is waiting until she has the means necessary to send the traffickers to jail without any revenge on her.Realtionships:*Lucia: She was a Brazilian refugee who fell into the hands of the same mafia that kidnapped Eve. Lucia was a polygot. Since Eve arrived in Haven Lake, she is desperate for news about her friend.
