Reed Richards

Post by Murphy » Fri Jan 28, 2011 1:40 am

Name: Reed Alexander Richards
Date of Birth: November 19, 1995
Age: 17
Height: 5'10” and still growing in little spurts
Weight: 160 lbs
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Brown

Powers: Plasticity. The ability to change his body mass in any way he can think. Because of this, his skin has become near impervious to all projectile weaponry or blade unless he specifically relaxes his focus. It is, however, possible to catch him off guard if he's focusing on something else. The extent to which he could stretch his body is unknown, but he's working on that.
Skills: Pretty good at lock picking, if it's needed. He's also pretty damned smart if you ask him.

Family: Nathaniel Richards – father
Evelyn Richards – mother

History: Reed was born to Nathaniel and Evelyn Richards in Central City, California. Despite trying, he was the only child they had. Being the only child, you'd think he was spoiled but it wasn't really the case. His mother doted on and loved him very much, encouraging him in his studies and everything that he tried. He thrived under that attention and when his mother died when he was small, he did the only thing he knew he could do to honor her memory: excel at his studies. Reed didn't see a lot of his father, though he knew that he loved him and wanted him to do his best, the man was always busy with his own work.

With his mother gone and his father not being around a lot. Reed was left to grow and develop on his own. Academically, he couldn't do any better, straight As and top of his class. Socially, he was completely awkward and couldn't talk to a girl to save his life. The other boys beat him up almost weekly. When he finally hit puberty, as if he wasn't already awkward enough, he started to develop strange powers. At random moments, his limbs would stretch to inhuman lengths. He'd wake up and find part of his body practically melted. Logically, he knew what was happening, knew he was developing powers that would make him a mutant. That, however, didn't stop him from freaking right the hell out.

As he grew older, he didn't hide who he was, but he wasn't about to announce it to everyone. His closest, and only really, friend knew about it and was okay with it, so he didn't think it was anyone else's business. Thus went his life. Being the smartest, socially awkward locker stuffer in the school district. It wasn't long before he graduated from high school as valedictorian. Now just to choose what college or colleges to go to.
