Appearance: Typical scrawny nerdy looking guy, wears geeky clothes and jeans often. Always seen carrying his childhood toy, a blocky looking robot named "Mech Fighter X" around, which is actually his symbiote partner Synth, with Synth either in his bag or being held by Richard. At school it's often sitting on his desk as he works in class.

Background: Richard was always a bit of a shy kid, grew up with his nose in a book rather than playing sports. He had a strange quirk about him, in the fact that he always carried his favourite toy with him wherever he went. The toy his parents don't ever remember buying him but he got anyway and it just showed up in his toy chest one day. "Mech Fighter X" it was called and it was the hero of his favourite tv show as a kid. Richard swears up and down that it talks to him but nobody else hears it. Thanks to that he's been in therapy and on medication for years of his childhood before they just gave up, seeing as it hasn't done any harm and just seems to ask him questions that makes him want to learn more. This often got him picked on through public school.

When he got into high school within the first few weeks some senior jock bullies cornered him when they found out he still played with a children's toy and talked to it, planning to rough him up because he was different and strange. Right when the first punch landed his body shifted to being synthetic and it's new state made him a lot harder. Not realizing what happened as he was suddenly looking through a HUD, Richard got scared and started wishing someone would help him as he didn't understand what was going on.

Synth finally made its presence known by engulfing and joining with Richard, building the form of the toy Richard loved all those years onto him as a suit, and calmed the boy by telling him that he was his hero, Mech Fighter X, and to bring these bullies to justice. Richard felt his body change under the suit's appearance to become one with it, and realized his body was truly that of Mech Fighter X, with all the robot powers included. After beating the hell out of the bullies Synth left Richard and returned to his form as a toy in his hand, explaining that he's not sure what he is, but that he's felt drawn to Richard as a child and sought to nurture his growth and help him through his life. He also explained that he felt his body change with Richard's, and realized the time was now for them to start down their path to learn their true purpose in life.

After searching for a while he happened upon Xavior's School for Gifted Children, and applied. During his application Synth and Richard joined again, Synth forming the armour once more and Richard willing himself to be his hero once more. The teachers watched as his body's readings changed from organic to synthetic, as well as were perplexed by the secondary life form. Unbeknownst to Richard his symbiote was identified as such and the information filed away. The staff did not want to attempt to remove the symbiote from Richard as it seemed to be enabling him to activate his mutant abilities. As he has gone through training he discovered that he could hold massive electrical charges in his body and use them to power his weapon systems while paired with Synth, or discharge them as lightning bolts while on his own.

Weapons and Fighting Skill: As the years passed and training continued, Richard picked up several combat styles including boxing, sword combat of both single sword style and dual sword style, as well as learning marksmanship. Synth reacted to Richard's intentions of becoming stronger, punching harder, and having better weaponry by altering the appearance he took until they reached an unconscious agreement of their final form. When in this form the backpack that was worn by Mech Fighter X had now become two arms stowed away, ready to be used to deliver piston powered punches that involve shunting the square column of his arms directly into someone at high speed and force. His body has hidden weapon systems inside including but not limited to, missile pods, chain guns, and laser cannons due to his ability to transform his body. Ammunition is taken from proteins in his body and the more he shoots the hungrier he is after he changes back.

Stats:

Strength: 7+2
Speed: 8+2
Dexterity: 8
Intelligence: 5
Wisdom: 5
Durability: 8
Constitution: 6
Charisma: 5

Powers: Organic to Synthetic biotransferrence, (Body is capable of changing from organic to synthetic to and instant, allowing for more durability strength and speed as reflected in stats) Electric absorption (absorbs electrical attacks to charge systems in synthetic form as well as boosts power output for bursts of even more power and speed. Powers his weapon systems when combined with the symbiote Synth. While in organic form he can discharge said electric power as if throwing lightning bolt from his finger tips)

Weaknesses: When not transformed, everything that can kill a normal human, while transformed, emp pulse.

Mentor: Kiwi (If you'll allow it)

NPC's/SideKicks: Synth

RP Sample:

Richard sat cross legged on the couch in the common room of the Academy dormitory, watching the news and saw himself as Omegus saving the day once again with Synth in his lap. He smiled to himself as the news applauded him for saving people, even with the mention at the end of wondering how long he'd be one of the good guys. He switched the channel to a crime fighting super hero show and settled in for a good morning watching justice served by the righteous. Max, one of the people who bother him for having his toy with him all the time, came walking up behind him and punched Richard in the back of the head with a fist that felt like a gallon of water smacked him.

Careening off the couch and across the table Richard found himself sprawled out on his back looking up at Max. "Hey loser, still haven't grown up enough to put your toy away?" He said while laughing at him. Richard just narrowed his eyes and pointed at Max. "Max, I'm starting to get real tired of that. Real tired. I may have to visit some justice on you like Omegus does on tv." Max laughed and walked up to Richard, who was still on the floor pointing at him. "Suuuuure, you're going to beat me up like that public laughing stock? Always spouting nonsense about fighting for justice and truth, he's nothing more than a douche in a suit like everyone else-" Max was cut off by a lightning bolt striking his chest and sending him flying backwards into the wall. When Max came to, Richard was standing over him, holding his toy tightly in his hand. "Do. Not. Ever. Speak. Ill. Of. Omegus." He warned before turning and walking away to get something to eat in the cafeteria.

=========================================================================================================

Real Name: Synth, short for Synthesis
Alias: Omegus
Real Age: 16
Apparent Age: 24
Race: Mutated Symbiote
Gender: N/A
Height: 8"
Weight: 3lbs
Alignment: Hero
Class: None
Universe: Marvel
Nationality: Unknown
Base of Operations: Xavior's Mutant Academy
Occupation: Child's Toy
Languages: English, French

Appearance: Typically looks like a pose-able boxy robot toy when not combined with Richard, appearance when combined with Richard looks like a larger version of this except with a number of modifications to personalize their appearance for better effectiveness over the years.

Background: (For the purposes of simplicity I'm going to refer to Synth as male instead of writing it's name over and over, as we don't have a lot of asexual identifiers other than "it" lol) Synth was exiled from his people at the age of 2 for being apparently unable to form a bond and consume a host. This was untrue however, it simply took him a much longer time. After arriving on Earth and registering with the MIB as a symbiote wishing to live peacefully among humans, he wandered around on an MIB agent attempting to find a host. One day as he passed by a family and small child, he saw the child had taken an interest in something on a television. It was the heroic robot crime fighter Mech Fighter X. He noticed that as the child watched the show and reacted as a child would, jumping around punching imaginary foes like his hero, that his body's pheromones kept cutting in and out, as if his form was changing. The child didn't seem aware of this fact though, which perplexed Synth. The child then reacted with glee when the show ended and a toy selling hook came with the credits showcasing the Mech Fighter X action figure. His parents though denied his requests saying they didn't have the money to spare for the toy, and he would have to wait to get it. Synth felt he found his ideal, someone to learn with and become bonded to over time.

After registering things up with the MIB, Synth assumed the form of the toy the child was wanting for so long, and planted it within Richard's toy box, neuralizying his parents in the process to prevent them from getting rid of the toy. Over the course of the years Synth learned a lot from Richard as their bond grew, becoming the best of friends. Synth was constantly annoyed and irritated with Richard's parents for trying to convince him that Synth wasn't really talking to him, as well as attempted to drug him so that he couldn't hear Synth anymore. Thankfully they gave up as nothing they did worked.

Synth completed his bonding with Richard when they were 10 and 12 respectively. His first time engulfing Richard occurred while richard was 14 to save him from getting beaten up by some bullies in high school. Shortly thereafter Richard applied for and is attending Xavior's School for Gifted Children, with Synth by his side at all times as his constant companion.

Weapons and Fighting Skill: Having grown up with Richard and amplifying his abilities, he has learned all of the fighting styles and skills Richard has, and they synergize their knowledge to be able to preform with incredible prowess.

Stats:

Strength: 7+1
Speed: 8+1
Dexterity: 8
Intelligence: 5
Wisdom: 5
Durability: 8+1
Constitution: 6
Charisma: 5+1

Powers:
Long Term Bonding - Synth is unlike others of his race in that he requires a much longer time, the course of about 8 years, to bond with a host. However when this bond is completed they can be separated and the effects of being fully bonded continue whenever they have any physical contact, and are not required to be in their combined form at all times.

Power Amplification - Synth has the ability to synthesize most powers (except those that are harmful to it) that his host has and amplify them to newer and greater levels.

Weaknesses: Because of his ability to copy and amplify his hosts abilities, in this case Richard's, Synth is no longer vulnerable to sound and heat, but is instead vulnerable to EMP. While not combined he is also vulnerable to acid. If he were to move onto a new host, he would gain their weaknesses as well as a secondary one as well (ie: weakness to acid while not combined with Richard)

Mentor: Toxin

NPC's/SideKicks: N/A

RP Sample: It was a typical day for Synth and Richard as they chilled in the Academy's library and read a book about human biology. "Wait wait wait, you're telling me that humans have organs in their body that don't do ANYTHING and cause no problems to the person when taken out?" Synth whispered as he stood over the book, ready to snap back into appearing inanimate at a moment's notice. "Uhh, yeah, it's a result of evolution, some organs stopped having a use but haven't evolved out of our bodies yet, and some new organs had to evolve inside humans to allow them to do more, like multiple lungs and kidneys."

Synth put his hands on his hips and looked confused. "Sounds like you people had parasite organs in you guys long before any symbiotes showed up to be parasite skins. According to this they can get agitated and cause severe discomfort, sickness, and even death. What the hell why are humans such self destructive time bombs?!" Richard chuckled. "Yeah, I guess you could say it's like that, but really they aren't that difficult to take out and the warning signs always show up easily days in advance before anything bad happens. People don't usually die from appendicitis now."

"Wait. What. People used to die from this stuff often??" Synth asked standing back looking alarmed. "Yeah, but that was long before medical technology and knowledge like we have today existed. They called them the Dark Ages for a reason you know." Synth relaxed and wiped his brow. "Good, I don't want to worry about you suddenly up and dying on me because of one of your throw-away organs throwing a temper tantrum. ...Hold on I hear someone coming." Synth quickly assumed the normal standing position of the toy whose form he was in and went silent. Seconds later the librarian rounded the corner of a bookshelf and looked at Richard, about to ask if the two people there could keep it down, and only saw Richard there with a toy. Feeling a bit weirded out by that she shrugged and walked away muttering something about boys and toys.

I accept this character but I am getting a sense that you like the cyborg concept a lot lol

1st question what do you mean by synthetic what synthetic material does he turn into cause that is a form of mimicry or physiology in terms of name ex if it was plastic it would be plastic mimicry which has not been used in comics yet surprisingly or if it is metal mimicry which has been used before. would like to know what to classify this power as

In terms of mentors I will allow you to do a player as your mentor however in the way I do mentors now you must have at least 1 mentor from your world that is not a player. from then on any character can have a mentor that is another player and a mentor from the other world that is not a player as they wish. I am doing this to make sure that you will be trained by veteran heroes or villains etc as the player characters are somewhat new to this hero business as you can tell. The player mentorship seems to be a lot like a learning together concept in my opinion and a good way to compare the teaching styles of the veteran heroes. so in short yea ill allow it but at the same time your not done yet lol

one thing about symbiotes they do not gain immunities to sound etc unless their host has it and even if that is the case that is as long as the symbiote is attached to the host bear this in mind

Seeing as most machines aren't affected by sound waves and heat in the same sense that organic life is, that's why i decided to say he lost his typical weaknesses. Razz

The synthetic body contains mostly metals yes, also if i'm not mistaken plastic man is actually a thing in the DC universe Razz although i'm unsure if he is just mimicry or is actually made of plastic.

As for mentors, who would you suggest really for either of them? I'd rather they both have the same mentor of course, but it's a mimicry mutant with a symbiote, not sure how many people fit the bill lol
