Long term illness has lead to a tendency to ignore pain and the condition of his body a lot of the time.Mental:
Rather lazy, tends to waste huge chunks of time procrastinating unless something is urgent. Currently still exploring his new abilities and having a grand time reaping the more mundane benefits, brutally practical, mildly paranoid. Asexual, usually fairly live and let live though gets very critical and harsh when angered, holds grudges for ages, but rarely acts on them.Supernatural:
Robert functions as a sort of channel for other worlds. Currently he has two connections he may call upon, referred to as the Flame and the Flesh for ease of reference. Actively using the powers granted by either slowly twists Robert's surroundings, the Flame turns them into a bleak dungeon of dark stone and traps, with the occasional strange shadowy monster that will attack anyone indiscriminately. The Flesh meanwhile is merely a carpet of bizarre red tissue that will slowly attempt to eat any organic matter it touches other than Robert. These changes go away once Robert leaves the area. While Robert is generally able to avoid the dangers of these worlds he has no control over them and lacks the ability to spare his allies their hazards.
The Flame is currently fairly straightforward. It takes the form of small embers of purple flame that warm the soul and mind in addition to the body. Robert can maintain up to nine at a time, and use them to shoot fire at enemies or enhance himself. He's fairly versatile with them, but truly grand displays or use of the self enhancement function will expend embers, requiring him to reignite them with an hour or so of meditation apiece. In the event of his death he and his possessions self immolate and reform whole at a nearby but probably inconvenient location. This saps some of his will semi-permanently and leaves him with a single ember. Eventually the sapping of will would reach such a state that he will end up in the Hospital anyway.
While the Flesh is active, his biology became really weird, gaining decent regeneration, requiring far less food (this carries over to his normal state as well), and having severed chunks continue to function for awhile. Meanwhile his nerves grow out of him looking like webs and function as each sensory organ at once. And his blood changes chemical properties on a whim (mostly acidity to poison) while being controllable so long as it's within contact with his body. He has since gained the ability to use his hands to draw in and eat various things, most notably he can “taste” or consume people’s memories, effectively allowing mind reading or the deletion of memories. Finally while using the previous ability on someone he may turn pieces of his body into tapeworms that can influence the host’s thoughts slightly in subtle directions, precise orders chosen at time of planting. He considers that ability creepy even by his standards, and endeavors not to use it.
Robert needs a few minutes of concentration to fully shut off either world. Though the twisting will slow greatly when not in active use an open connection will still visibly mark his appearance, be it with the embers surrounding him or the strange twisting Flesh. Reopening a connection is the matter of an instant's thought. With time he may acquire new connections or strengthen his current ones to gain new abilities.Background:
Grew up on a normal Earth, had severe stomach issues that while not life threatening were painful and annoying. Ended up as a borderline NEET. Then he got dropped into another world with strange abilities, that world wasn't particularly hospitable, so he ended up dying horribly after arriving in the base of a super villain, from there he awoke again in the house of one of the local heroes, while she wasn't home. After some further misunderstandings he was taken into police custody and then awoke in the City.Notes:
Using a slightly modified version of the Conduit CYOA, found here. https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Conduit
namely Qlipoth and the Crucible thus far, also has generally terrible luck with where his power drops him after his death. Is from a previous RP that I enjoyed but seems to have died off.
