⸢ ♕ ⸥ Adriana Candelaria ─────────────────────────────────────
────────── luna ♡ eighteen ♢ twelve (scouted) ♤ hero ♧ light absorption

──────────── + can absorb, and thus remove, light from her surroundings
can overheat if she absorbs too much light - ───────────────────────

It isn't easy growing up as the daughter of one of the top superheroes in the country — this, Ana knows from experience. From when she was born, there was always something that set her apart from her family. While the rest of her family brought light and life to the world — her father, whose family was a line of fire-related quirks, and her mother, from a family of light-emitters — she took it away.

It's a little bit of a downer when your ability is to take the light from things, and even moreso when you can't exactly control it well. Ana isn't lacking in power — her town had been dark for days when her mother was killed — but control? Yes.

Which is just fantastic because it seems that everyone else is dead set on telling her just about how amazing her father was when he was her age. Precise. Accurate. Perfect. Yeah, well. He's not perfect. They might have seen Jupiter, #2 Hero, on their TV screens, but she knows her father isn't that shining, glowing superhero that he once was.

And besides — she's her own person. But it seems that people keep forgetting that.

⸢ ♕ ⸥ Azalea Nam ──────────────────────────────────────────
──────────── nightshade ♡ seventeen ♢ twelve ♤ heroes ♧ kiss of death

─────────────── + any living thing she kisses will begin to rapidly decay
severe emotional trauma, prone to chapped lips - ───────────────────

There's a certain amount of irony in that her mother named her Azalea. Just like the flower — a beautiful poison. The one that, in fact, killed her mother. She hadn't known any better — how could she? All she had wanted to do was be a normal child, show her mother her love — and she killed her. It's not your fault, it's not your fault, everyone tells her, and, yeah. She knows that she had no way of knowing what was happening. But it was still her.

So she's not going to repeat it. She's made it into U.A. on her own merit, no genetic pool required. She's an excellent fighter — well-versed with weapons and martial arts — and, well, that gymnastics when she was young did help. She's going to be a hero, save lives, her own way, and she's not going to hurt anyone else.

And that's why she pushes people away — really, it's better for everyone this way. If everyone stays very, very far away from her and her lips, then no one's going to rapidly decay before their own eyes. And it saves Azalea the emotional trauma. It's just — better. It's better. And if some of her classmates have taken to calling her ice queen, then so be it. She'd rather be a bitch than a murderer.

⸢ ♕ ⸥ Natsuki Midorima ─────────────────────────────────────
───────────────────── tatsu ♡ seventeen ♢ eleven ♤ heroes ♧ tatsu

───────────────────────────── + scaly hands, claws, hydrokinesis
hands always dry, can only manipulate water in liquid state - ──────────

The good news: Suki is probably the nicest dragon-like person you'll ever meet. After all, this weird combination? Not actually a dragon. It's the lovely medley of lizard mutations from Mom and that hydrokinesis from Dad's side. And now? Well, she might as well be one of those Japanese dragons from legend.

It's kind of fun. Sure, when she's referred to as a dragon, people ask why she can't breathe fire, or why she has no wings. But she's not like, a Western dragon (though, she has to admit, that would be pretty sweet).

In any case, Suki likes the way she is. And she's here because she wants to be a hero — not the kind that fights bad guys, but the kind that goes into flooded zones to save civilians. Yeah. That combat stuff? Not for her.

────────── ♕ ──────────
you're so boring / don't stop to calculate complex things / imma do like this

There are a lot of things that Yoomi is at U.A. for, and not one of them is to take shit from people. She has a simple policy in life: Enjoy it. Is she going to do things she probably shouldn't? Hell yes. She's not afraid of making mistakes; she'll just learn how to work it out along the way.

Make no mistake: Yoomi is not stupid. Flippant? Sure. A little impractical? Yeah. But she's not dumb. She knows the science behind her quirk, she knows how people and systems work — she just doesn't always care. And there's some virtue to that, wouldn't you agree?

SHADOW ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
+ ] The user is able to access/channel dark energy through "vents" in the pores in their feet/hands/face and "turn" himself into a dark energy vessel with shadow-like attributes + manipulate dark energy to strike opponents. An unconventional mutation quirk, while at the highest point of control the user is completely transformed into shadow, as the pores on the user's feet are always "suctioning" in dark energy, they continually have the physicality of shadows.
- ] Because it is fed by dark energy, the bigger/more powerful the shadow becomes the more negatively the user is affected, carrying the potential to cause the user psychological or physical harm/distortion, perhaps permanently.
It's the first memory Nolan has: jumping out of his seat at the mention of a superhero on the nightly news, only to come back to the table with a resigned pout when his mother failed to be mentioned. Soon enough, Nolan had the evening routine perfected: turn on the TV, eat dinner, wait and wait and wait some more until the disappointing that's it for tonight. But what more could you expect if your mom was a Division C superhero? It was typical. Typical until the day eight year old Nolan jumped up from the dinner table at the mention of Lady Luck, watching coverage of his mother rewinding the scenario, just like he'd seen her do countless times before, except now on television and against villains. Hugging the TV in that childish pride until the scene suddenly cut off and went back to the anchors, looking at the camera with rehearsed "sadness" to inform that Jimin Nam, more commonly known as Lady Luck, had died while performing a heroic act of self-sacrifice in order to buy time for those 207 people trapped in the skyscraper. Typical.

Being a hero is just a job. That's what Nolan tells himself even if he doesn't quite believe it. That's what he tells himself as he holds back, exhaling away the fear that comes with having a quirk more fit for a villain than a hero. That's what he tells himself when people start to get on his nerves, tempting the darkness™ to creep up his neck and into his head. Polish that smirk, wear the apathy proudly, keep your heart as cold as your head. Typical.

Now, Nolan's dead mother is hailed with a hero's legacy, her life story printed, plastered, and played by a mindless mob who couldn't care less. His father plays with numbers during the week and with soju during the weekends, drinking away the hatred of his sons. His little brother sweats himself a storm on the track field, fiercely devoted until he steps onto the front porch and conveniently forgets to call. Typical. At least it gives Nolan something else to worry about, a nice change from the usual, "if you lose control you'll end up killing everyone" mantra that keeps him in check.

    Sure, it's awesome to have superheroes as your parents, but it's not awesome to have to live up to their unstoppable limitations. But of course, he just had to get these parents. Fire and Electricty, of course he was given the deadly gift of lightning. Why wouldn't he? Why would he not be told he would have to live up to these amazing heroes?

Xavier, or X, likes his quirk and his family, don't get him wrong, he just is annoyed with the fact that he has to do so many things to try and be perfect for his parents. Lightning is super hard to control, and seriously threatens to kill him every time he generates it, And yeah he loves his parents, but they know he's just a kid right? They know he probably won't be better than they were and just wants to relax a little right? He's tired of getting burned. But, he has to make mommy and daddy proud. So yeah, hero school. So. Much. Fun.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ [ ✧ ] ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
lightning generation ━ The user has the capability to create lightning using the energy around them and guides it throughout their body before directing out through their hands or fingertips.

The downside to this quirk is that lightning cannot be controlled, only directed. The user must be completely at ease and completely aware of what they are doing or the lightning will hit them in their organs and could be fatal. The user will also suffer from burns if the lightning is maintained for too long. After producing and directing lightning, the user becomes very weary and tired, which may lead to passing out from exhaustion.
