Lark Seren – Conjurer, Potions Expert – Jenna Louise Coleman – Pending
What Lark’s parents didn’t know when they named their daughter was how appropriate it would come to be. Rebellious teenage years are a given, but it takes a particular fire in a spirit to fly away from home. Born into a turbulent household, the girl felt lost in a sea of whole and stepsiblings. Though there was never much time to be spent with oneself and there was never any fear of growing lonely, but Lark felt different from the others. As hard as she tried to excel at one thing or another her efforts were perpetually unnoticed. The girl grew restless, started to show up at the dinner table less and less, received lower marks in school, began to swear, wear heavy makeup, dress in ways her parents didn’t approve of and sink into a full fledged rebellion. Though harmless at first, the girl’s wild ways became problematic to her relationship with her parents when Stephen entered the picture.
Stephen was every rebellious girls dream, and every parent’s worst nightmare. However, blinded by her immaturity and naivety, Lark left home with him at seventeen under the impression he would take care of her and give her the life he promised. For the first few months things were as he said he would be, but the lens of the rose colored glasses he showed her the world through shattered. The couple ran out of money and was forced into low-income housing. Tired from work and trying to stretch welfare checks to cover addictions and selfish pleasures, Stephen quickly grew impatient with his considerably younger girlfriend. It wasn’t long before the beatings started. Most of the time Lark was able to fend for herself, outwitting or outrunning the stumbling drunk. Lark was only lucky enough so many times. Fighting fire with fire never works out, and Lark found herself in a cell as the result of a manslaughter charge despite vehement arguments that she acted in self-defense.
However, the jury at her trial heard her claims louder than the police had. Mercifully she was sent to Genisius, rather than a penitentiary. The Doctor chose to afford one of his harder working patients, The Medicine Man, a degree of relief with the newest addition to his collection. Lacing black magic into the workings of Lark’s soul the Doctor gave her the ability to create charms and potions as well as conjuring and casting spells. Though the girl by rule is not allowed to use her potions or charms on the other patients it doesn’t always stop her. With her ability she works side by side with Vincent, who excels at conjuring and readings of various sorts.

Maylin Miller – Empathic Manipulation – Imogen Poots - Open

However, when the recession hit, it took its toll on the family-owned business and her parents and she were forced to move in with her aunt and uncle.

However, when one of her guy friends tried to further something, it made her uncomfortable and she fought back, and when she pulled away she fell and hit her head.

Jordyn Montgomery – Fire Manipulator – Ben Bruce – Open
Jordyn Montgomery had never fit the normal standards of his peers in school, he had always been different, not finding his lessons stimulating, and never being the best at making friends. However once he hit middle school he found English was his strong point, so rather than focus on his other lessons, he would often skip classes and hole up in the library and read. He became obsessed with the written word and soon began writing his own little stories, getting caught up in his made up world. By the time high school rolled around his grades were so terrible in everything other than English he made up his mind to drop out.
When his parents found out, they were angry and threw him out of the house. He soon found that he couldn’t find a job without his high school degree, and resorted to panhandling for money and food, and slept wherever he could. He finally scraped up enough money to get an old guitar and soon was writing and singing his own songs on street corners to earn money. He eventually gained notice and got his first gig. However while waiting to go on stage, where he felt most at home, a drunk ex-band mate accidentally set a fire to the bar, causing the roof to collapse and trap some within who didn’t make it. Jordyn, was wrongly accused by the police for starting the fire and arrested. He was sent to Genisius as a pity plea and there the Doctor, tired of all the patients complaints of the cold, fashioned Jordyn into a Fire Manipulator and put him down in the boiler room to heat the facility.

Liam Mills – Phasing, Mass Manipulation – Alex Pettyfer – Open
Growing up in the flyover state of Wyoming one wouldn’t think there were many distractions from “the good life”. The great outdoors and extended channels on HBO was about as exciting as things got in the town Liam was raised in, so it wasn’t uncommon for kids to find more obscure forms of recreation. Afraid their son may grow up complacent or feeling trapped in the small town Liam’s parents wanted to give him the opportunity to make a way for himself in the world. At four they signed him up for his first soccer camp and from then on he never took a day off. Though the town didn’t afford much, Liam was happy. His grades were good, he got along with his parents, and had a small group of close friend but his life truly revolved around soccer.
The school labeled him as a soccer prodigy. Playing on the varsity team as a freshman talent scouts and recruiters noted the boy immediately. It wasn’t until his junior year that the offers began to pour in. Gone were the days of the small Wyoming town. Callum went to Seattle University on a sports scholarship. Studying sports medicine almost his entire life was focused around his passion. However, Liam found himself widely popular among the women on campus. Finding a new woman in his bed every weekend never seemed problematic to his performance until the final game before regionals. A drunken romp with a teammates longstanding girlfriend went from the bedroom to the field when his teammate, enraged by the breach of trust, strategically missed the ball and hit Liam instead. The injury was massive-a ruptured Achilles tendon and further muscle damage. Liam wouldn’t be debilitated for life, but his soccer career was finished. Consumed by the accident Liam found a way to get back at the boy. Attempting to kill the teammate slowly and unnoticed he slipped antifreeze into his sports drinks from the bench. Liam was eventually caught when another team member drank from the same bottle and fell ill.
After being convicted for attempted murder the young man needed to be sent somewhere where he could be rehabilitated for his injury. Genisius had seemed to fit the bill. Packing up what Liam felt was left of his life was painful-he knew the life he had planned to live was now too far beyond reality to hope for. The Doctor took an ironic twist on the accident that had cost the boy his freedom, granting him the ability of phasing and mass manipulation. The boy can phase through any wall but the guarding walls of the facility, keeping him trapped within. He may also make himself intangible if he so chooses-as well as other objects. Cruel hearted the boy takes advantage of his gift constantly pulling tasteless pranks on other patients. He is miserable and in mourning for the life he could have had, and he wants others to share his same pain. The Doctor uses him as a physical therapist for the dancers and longstanding injuries the guards might sustains because of his brief training in sports medicine. However, when a patient finds themselves in Liam’s office he doesn’t mind subjecting them to a little torture and pain—after all he can fix the pain in agn instant and a little entertainment is a small price for the patient to pay.
Dr. Asa Campbell - Age Channeling – Colin Ford/Johnny Simmons – Open
Asa Campbell’s office was one of the most frequented practices in its trendy LA location. Servicing the most elite socialites in the busy city Asa made a name for himself at a young age as a skilled cosmetic surgeon and never slowed down from there. Around his fifth year working under an older surgeon Asa had built himself enough of a reputation, respect among other surgeons, clientele and fortune that he was able to open his own practice in partnership with a number of other up and coming surgeons. Though Asa’s specialty was anti-aging surgeries the office provided many cosmetic procedures.
A few years into running his own practice one of the partners was ill and could not come into the office. Asa’s timeslot for the procedure was free. Though he had spent years focusing on anti-aging, Asa decided he would be able to handle the surgery, a rather minimal and routine operation he had done many times in the past. He was wrong. While patching the patient back up Asa forgot to remove a tool used during the surgery that lead to a life ending infection for the patient. Infuriated and unable to cope with his own failure Asa began to smuggle prescription slips and morphine from the other doctors and supplies. His addiction grew and more issues of malpractice and botched surgeries surfaced. With each new case Asa’s addiction grew deeper until he was forced out of the practice he had worked so hard to build.
For fear of their coworker never recovering an intervention was held. Though there were numerous rehabilitation centers around the area with good reputation the process generally works better in a completely different environment than the patient’s home. Asa was unwittingly sent to his own personal hell when his bags were packed and he boarded a plane for Genisius. At the facility he is one of the most well kept secrets, but one of the Doctor’s most used tools. Only the wealthiest clients know about Asa and his powers because his ability comes at a high price, and it is one the Doctor needs for his more useful patients. The Doctor used the idea of anti-aging with the man, granting him eternal youth in the body of a young adult. However, Asa can also pull years off the lifespans of individuals, taking them upon himself. Slowly, he will regress back into the young body he now possesses. The process is slow and only a decade or so can be stripped at once, so the price is high as well as the demand as he often is used to keep performers and sex workers in the facility young.
Asa might be discontent with his life at the facility, but he is grateful for his sobriety. He is also utilized on a more frequent schedule as a sort of nurse or caretaker for minor ailments as the Doctor cannot be bothered. He hates his young body-a grown man in his early forties before he came to the facility. When he is treated as a youth or as inferior he becomes offended almost instantly. He is impatient when he feels patronized. With a sharp tongue and condescending attitude, treating Asa as anything but his true age won’t end well for the patient who crosses this line. When Asa is having a good day he can be friendly. One of his most striking personality traits is his wisdom and perspective, further impressive by the false illusion of his young age.
Florence “Flo” Brooks – Ghost – Gemma Ward – Open
Flo and her twin sister Willow were born into a well to do family. The two couldn’t be more different however, and their families supported their individuality and independence. Even at school they split off to different classes, and only saw each other one they got home in the safety of their room, completely at ease with each other’s company. Flo was never the go-getter Willow was, she was a follower and always wanted to be a piece to a different puzzle. She found this in sports as she got older and took up a love for competitive swimming, also gaining a fondness for photography. However, as the girls got older they grew even more apart, and when college time rolled around Flo received a sports scholarship at the same college Willow did. Flo joined the law school intent on becoming an environmental lawyer. The girls were unable to see each other more and more, and when Willow invited her to a party, Flo agreed eager to spend time with her sister. However as the party went to a close, Flo soon found herself with a very drunk Willow, and despite her insistence that Willow not drive, Flo gave in and handed her the keys. Willow crashed the car, and Flo found herself watching things from a rather ethereal point of view.

Now due to Juniper and Noah’s powers, Flo is able to stay with Willow in Genisius, she often attempts to comfort the other patients, Flo has a big heart and enough love for everyone.

Willow Brooks – Metal Manipulation, Assistant to Harley – Amanda Seyfried – Open
Despite the fact that Willow and Florence are twins, the girls developed into complete opposites in taste, demeanor, hobbies, and skills. Even if the girls had been born identical no one would have mistaken one for the other but even being opposites the two girls were inseparable like typical twins—in life and death. Born to a wealthy, close knit family the girls showed differing interests from the age of three. Able to support both girls’ creative muses the family was in constant flux trying to encourage their individuality and independence. Splintering into their own worlds after the homeroom bell Willow and Florence wouldn’t see each other again until dinner. From dinner until breakfast the next morning the girls would hole up in the room they shared, and although they both had lives without one another together they felt most at ease.
Willow seemed to be the wilder, freer spirited twin from the very beginning. Born second, it was always joked she had pushed Flo out into the world for want of experiencing it on her own. From the birthing room on Flo became the follower. Willow was outspoken, brash, and often described as a bit cynical with her dry sense of humor. She had little patience for those around her, except Flo, and had a strong penchant for details. Her parents noticed her gravitation toward art from a young age, but when she grew old enough to become more experimental in her tastes she found a true passion: welding. Willow attended a liberal arts college with her sister and enrolled in the arts school. Looking toward the future the girl planned to become a jewelry designer. She was skilled with an eclectic taste and a thrift store just off campus had contracted her to make pieces to sell. The horizon looked bright for Willow—until the accident.
No one but Willow is sure how the accident happened because she was the only one who survived. The details were fuzzy in her mind as she lifted her head from the steering wheel, lungs burning from the powder that filled the air from the ejected airbag. Flo was dead. Willow could tell at first glance, despite her drunken state. The flames licking at the inside of the other vehicle told her the other car held no survivors. Forcing the driver door open with great difficulty the girl stumbled around to the passenger door. With great strain Willow managed to push Flo’s body to the driver’s seat and waited for the EMTs to arrive. What she hadn’t noticed in her drunken state was the street security camera capturing the entire event.
After the tapes were reviewed Willow was sent to prison to await trial on charges of a DUI and second-degree murder. Willow suffered extreme survivors guilt and mental collapse during a two-year wait for her trial process. The ruling was greatly altered by the sorry state of the girl and she was sent to Genisius. The Doctor found use in her creative abilities and gave her the ability to control metals so that she might serve as Harley’s assistant. Though she generally gets along with Harley they butt heads on days she feels particularly headstrong or that his compromises her own artistic vision, even though Harley holds the authority. The only happiness Genisius affords Willow is the reunion with her sister. Aside from that she is self sufficient to a fault—one she enjoys rubbing in particularly damaged patients faces. She can be cold and unsympathetic, though on a good day she is simply a bit cynical and headstrong. On a bad day the damaged mind of the surviving twin can be sadistic—one function of her ability allows the girl to control the iron in other patients bloodstreams, causing them great complications and pain, and Willow never hesitates to do so.
I am most certainly open to discussing them. Please, message me off anon and we can discuss the character/FCs you think are more suitable.
Victor Reid – Retrocognition - Milo Ventimiglia – Open
Not much is known about Victor before Genisius, the only thing known is what the Doctor has in his files. He was once a police interrogator and came up with an injury that caused him severe memory loss. Because of this, Victor does not know anything before living at Genisius and it has made him cold and crass. The Doctor gave him Retrocognition, which allows him to read and see anyone’s memories (not including The Doctor and Luca), as well as their most private thoughts. He is frustrated that he can’t remember his own memories, so he takes it out on the other patients, often making them relive their darkest of memories using regret, pain, and shame against them. He does this out of fear and anger, hurting them on purpose to free himself, even though he is building memories every minute. He is able to control memories such as relationships, people, and losing those memories in an accident. He is also prone to only sadistic relationships, and is just as sadistic as The Doctor and Luca.
Victor is very particular about details, because they are his perfect weapon. He is very nosy despite not wanting to form relationships and wants to take the patient’s memories and lives as his own. He is very impatient and void of pity, if someone gets on his nerves he’s quick to hint about a bad memory to their faces to warn them.
