Backtagging: To an extent is fine, but let's not get TOO crazy, especially with the nature of this game. Of course, if it's a thread we've already started, yeah, we can keep going. I can forget about it after awhile so feel free to poke.
Threadhopping: I prefer keeping things making sense chronologically but if you REALLY feel like Virgil NEEDS to have this happen, then by all means.
Fourthwalling: Virgil is a nerd who likes sci-fi, fantasy, comic books, video games, and stuff like that. He exists in the DC universe so while he probably won't be breaking any brains in that area he may know some other sci-fi/fantasy stuff. Think Star Wars references or titles like that. If you are okay with Virgil knowing your characters universe or are okay with it existing in the DC animated universe, let me know. Now, as far as fourth walling him goes...have fun. Although your character should probably be a pretty big DC fan since honestly the average joe who doesn't watch cartoons or read comics probably won't know him like they would Batman or Superman.
Offensive Subjects: Case by case basis mostly.

[IC]
Hugging: Depends on the person.
Fighting: Likely won't start a fight, but he's not just going to let someone beat up on him either.
Injuring: Case by case mostly.
Killing: Let's keep the hero alive as long as possible okay?
Telepathy/Mind-Reading: Funny story, he actually seems to be immune to it. This is mostly due to his electric powers and the brain being electric or something. IDK I'd have to watch the episode again, but yeah he's resistant to mind control (but I'm not sure if that was just the one meta's type or if a more powerful psychic could get in).
Relationships: He's not dating anyone and can be kind of flirty with a cute girl. Probably won't think to ask a girl out on a space ship though. And, yeah, he's straight.
Sex: Not gonna happen.
Extra:

[Hearing your Private Radio Conversation] | Virgil's electromagnetism somehow lets him pick up broadcasts like that. IDK how this works but I've seen him do it in canon with police scanners and hacking into the comm-link between Batman Beyond and Bruce. If you'd rather that didn't happen let me know...although this will probably only be case by case.

[TBA] | If I think of more let me know. Virgil's powers can be...fairly broad in the animated series.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------TIME LINE PERTAINING TO STATIC
Day 1 ]
- Woke up from cryo-chamber after Roxas & spoke with him in the hallways about the ship.
- Presumably went back to read the pods and see if he recognized any names.  Figured out the computers w/ Roxas.
- Responded to a video post from Maddy/Veil and discussed the possibility of being from alternate Earths.  Met up with her later and revealed that he was a metahuman.  Found out about some other metahumans and they became friends.
- Returned to his room to find Warren flinging his stuff everywhere looking for his jacket and found out this was his roommate.  Warren found Virgil's Static gear and concluded he was a metahuman.  Virgil saw him use his powers.  Are they friends or not?
- Later wandered the ship more, talking to Ororo, Nymta, and John E.  Nymta gave him the idea to try hacking the doors or computers, but he hasn't done it just yet.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------CHARACTER RELATIONS

[ Roxas | [livejournal.com profile] two_keys  ]
First person he met.  Not much is known other than he seems sick from the cryo-chamber and a little cranky.  

[ Maddy | [livejournal.com profile] gonnasavemyself  ]
First person he spoke to over the video communications on the ship.  She seems nice and he feels sorry for her because of the Avenger's Academy, or at least, what she has SAID about the Academy.  First person he told about being a metahuman but didn't mention his superhero status.

[ Warren | [livejournal.com profile] dadwasavillain  ]
His roommate on board.  They have a love/hate relationship going on right now, bit on the hate.  Warren first met him while he was going through his stuff and found Virgil's superhero costume.  Virgil was not happy and is still kind of iffy about him.  But, he's also impressed cause Warren doesn't seem as dumb as he looks.

[ Ororo | [livejournal.com profile] dhoruba  ] 
A nice woman who seems to be worried about the kids on board.  He respects her immediately.

Character
Name: Virgil Hawkins
Fandom: Static Shock [DC animated]
Age: 16
Physical description: Looks Cool
Background: General History
Point in Story: The end of the series, after Virgil has gotten his powers back from Big Bang 2.
Personality: Virgil is a fun loving kid with a sarcasm that is all his own. He likes to joke around and goof off as much as possible. He can also be pretty lazy or laid back, depending on how you look at it, as you're more than likely to find him avoiding chores and work. Obviously any one of these things can get him in trouble with the wrong people as he has no trouble smart mouthing people who are bigger than him. It also infuriates his sister to no end but that is mostly out of sibling love. On the flip side though, he DOES piss off a lot of his foes with his words. Virgil, most of the time, just doesn't know when to shut up and stop being sarcastic.

That's not to say he doesn't have his serious side though. He doesn't like seeing people being bullied and certainly dislikes it when the person being bullied can't fight back. He sometimes gets a little arrogant with his abilities, not to mention cocky, but that could probably be said for many teenage boys his age, well, teenage boys with superpowers. Virgil is definitely the type to stand up for the "little guy" though because he's usually one of those guys.

Virgil's weakness is probably his difficulty with trusting people who have betrayed him in someway. He can take things a little personally sometimes and, in cases like that, can not only hold a grudge but also find it hard to forgive. Grudges aside, if you don't mess with Virgil's family or friend's he's usually alright. And yes this includes his sister who, while she gets on his nerves to no end, is STILL his sister. While he can be pretty bad about jumping to conclusions at times and be a bit thick headed he is goodhearted and tries not to judge others too quickly. Well, unless you're from a gang. Virgil has a "no gangs" policy due to the way in which he lost his mother and this influences a lot of who he is.

He is also, surprisingly, very intelligent, he was even accepted into a gifted school at one point where he made his own programs and worked with computers a lot. He's an honor student and has impressed a number of adults with his behavior (since his father pretty much raised him to be respectful to authority figures). Virgil also has an extensive knowledge of comic books thanks to his other hobby of reading them, not to mention a lot of other things under "nerdy subculture" like video games, rpgs, and sci-fi. This very much influences his humor.
Powers/Abilities: Virgil has electromagnetic abilities. This manifests in a number of ways but his main uses for it seem to be in shooting electricity from his fingers, using his "static cling" and magnetism to move objects, flying on his disc (or a trash can lid), manipulate technology and signals such as radio waves, and withstand powerful shocks of electricity. He has shown himself to be resourceful with these abilities and is constantly finding new uses for them.

Sometimes Virgil's electrical abilities will run low on "juice" and when this happens, he has to tap into a nearby electrical source to build up power. It's also been shown that sunspots have an adverse effect on his powers causing them to flux from out of control to practically nonexistent. There is also this tiny problem with water that when he gets soaked he risks being shorted out but this only seems to happen if he gets hit with water while using his abilities.

This is a list of things he has done with his abilities, to name a few:
Amplified Electrical Aura
Electromagnetism
Electromagnetic bolts
Electromagnetic levitation
Static Cling
Taser Punch
Ball Lightning
Nova Burst
Electromagnetic pulse
Enhanced hearing

In addition, he has also been shown to have some resistance to mind control and electrocution.

Wiki's Explanation (just in case the above needs elaborating): "Static's powers center around electromagnetism, making him part of the Earth's electromagnetic field as well as capable of generating and storing his own electromagnetic energy. He can choose to keep the electromagnetic energy that he currently holds in his body by controlling the current and voltage for whenever he wants to use it. Static's body can generate raw electromagnetic energy, which he can control at will for various purposes."

Items you're bringing with you: Virgil very likely had his blue backpack on him which would probably contain some books/paper/pens/etc for class, his Static costume, a few Zap-Caps (tiny "grenades" of electromagnetic power), the collapsible saucer he flies on (not that he can really use it on a ship), his wallet, and keys to his house. Probably only about half those things will be of any use. Then of course there were the clothes on his back he was wearing TO school. Namely a bright orange shirt, pair of jeans, probably a tanktop under the shirt, socks and shoes...oh and underwear (boxers).

Samples
First Person POV (Network Post):
You know, it's times like this I really miss Richie. See, if HE were here then I wouldn't be having to spend so long just trying to figure out how to turn this on. I don't think even Wayne Tech has stuff this advance. Then again, I don't think they have a space ship with sleeper pods on it either. Well, they might, but I doubt it.

Okay, Virg, getting off topic here.

So, hey, is there anyone actually piloting this crazy thing? I just sort of...popped out of that pod and I'd really appreciate it if I could find something more to wear. I realize that might not be the most critical thing right now but, come on, a guy can't exactly think about alien abductions or space travel when he's wearing something that BARELY serves it's purpose as clothes.

Just, you know, wondering. Anyone out there? Hello?
Third Person POV (Log Post): Virgil's head was reeling. This was WAY beyond his usual realm of weird, which was saying something considering he was a metahuman and had worked with the Justice League a number of times. Part of him wondered if this was some freaky dream from eating too many nachos from the cafeteria at school, but he knew that wasn't the case. He had been on his way to school, not to mention mind control didn't really work on him. Not to mention he'd already pinched himself several times and the cold air in the room was really starting to get to him.

He couldn't help but shiver, crossing his arms over his chest to try to warm himself, "Okay, get out of the cold now, freak out about the situation later." He started walking down the row of pods, peering at some but he didn't see any names that were familiar to him. That was both a good and bad thing he supposed. He wasn't sure how he would explain why a 16 year old high school kid was on an alien vessel. At least if he was dressed as Static he could maybe come up with something. Virgil paused and looked down at his hospital gown, "Actually, any clothes would be nice right about now."

Okay, surely this ship wasn't completely devoid of clothing. Virgil's face turned to one of determination as she walked out of the cyrochamber and into another room. This one looked like some kind of central hub of the ship. He could tell that they were supposed to be computers but they were WAY more advanced than anything he'd ever seen. Which, was saying something, considering he'd been on board the Justice League's space station. He sighed and approached one of the consoles. This was really more Richie's area of expertise, but, it wasn't like he was a complete idiot with computers.

Virgil started pushing a few of the buttons, trying to figure out how to get someone on speaker. There had to be SOMEONE flying this ship or at least ON the ship aside from himself and the other people sleeping (or was it frozen) in the other room? It took him a few minutes, but finally Virgil managed to get the computer to do what he wanted: communicate with others on the ship. It actually made him grin and he started speaking to the computer hoping SOMEONE was on this ship. 'I really don't want to spend my time talking to myself,' he thought.

- CHARACTER INFORMATION
NAME: Virgil Ovid Hawkins
CODENAME: Static
SERIES/SOURCE: Static Shock (DC Animated)
AGE: 16
GENDER: Male
ROLE: Student

BACKGROUND:
[IMPORTANT NOTE: The majority of his background is the same as it was from the television show. The only real changes are the fact that Virgil is a natural mutant and not created from the "big bang" gas. As a note, this is Virgil as he is later in the "series". So the darker costume, and less 'OMG MY EYES' clothing and more awesome ness XD. Also, this makes room for Gear, should we get one in the future.]

Virgil Hawkins had a normal and happy childhood up until the point when he was eleven and his mom was killed in crossfire during a gang riot in Dakota, Illinois (sometimes considered part of Chicago). Virgil had a hard time coping with it but ever since then has had an extreme dislike for gangs and violence.

It wasn't until he was fifteen and in high school that things really changed for him. Virgil got caught up in a fight between two gangs, thanks to a certain bully of his, and was called out to the docks to 'solve' his problem. The fight got out of hand and Virgil's powers manifested just as the cops showed up to break up the fight. His powers caused a huge flash that blinded a majority of the gang members and Virgil fled from the scene, not really realizing what had happened.

Although, the next morning when he woke up with everything from his bed spread to his loose change clinging to him, he realized something was definitely not right. Instead of going to his Pops or sister though, he went to his best friend, Richie, to figure it out. Eventually they realized that Virgil had developed mutant abilities.

Virgil wasn't the only one around developing powers and abilities however. It turned out Chicago and its surrounding areas were becoming a hot spot for mutant activity. Virgil's main problem was with a gang calling themselves the 'Bang Babies.' These mutants were out and proud about their powers, often terrorizing the public or just causing problems in general.

Taking on the alias of Static, Virgil took up the job of cleaning up the mess the Bang Babies caused. Occasionally he would get help from his friend, Richie, who was the only other person that knew that Virgil was Static. Virgil was glad that he had one accepting friend, but always struggled with the desire to tell his Pops and sister.

Around the time Xavier started advertising that the school for mutants would be opening its doors, Virgil decided it was time. He told his father about what was happening to him and how his powers had manifested a year ago (by this point). While his Pops was more or less accepting in the long run, the fact remained that he worried for his son. Dakota had developed a strong fear against the majority of mutants, good or bad, and wanted them out of their town. Seeing the problems that could complicated Virgil's life, he suggested that Virgil attend Xavier's school.

Virgil was reluctant at first, not wanting to leave his best friend, family, and home behind. However, after an incident where he accidentally harmed Richie with his powers, he decided it was for the best.

APPEARANCE:
A young man on the short side for his age but it is obvious that he is due for a few more growth spurts anytime now. Virgil has very dark brown skin and dark eyes. His hair is also black and is made up into dreads that are short and stick up around his head. He normally wears your typical street clothes: baggy blue jeans, a long sleeve orange shirt, and tennis shoes.
POWERS:
Virgil has electromagnetic abilities. This manifests in a number of ways but his main uses for it seem to be in shooting electricity from his fingers, using his "static cling" and magnetism to move objects, flying on his disc (or a trash can lid), manipulate technology and signals such as radio waves, and withstand powerful shocks of electricity.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I put a shock to your system
-For a short period of time he attended a seminar at The Vanmoor Institute for Science.

- RP SAMPLES
First-person sample:
Woah, so that was a long flight. I didn't realize how huge this place was going to be. I mean, I know it's a school but man, this place looks like it should have butlers or something.

...it doesn't have butlers, does it?

I'm Virgil, by the way, Virgil Hawkins.

I hope Pops isn't going to worry too much about me while I'm here. Sharon on the other hand is probably already throwing a party. Too bad for her, since I don't think she realizes yet that it means I won't be there to do the dishes any more.
Third-person sample:
Virgil had never felt this nervous before. It seemed like the last few weeks had been a roller coaster, from telling his Pops about his powers to finding himself signing up for this school. Virgil still wasn't sure what to make of it: a school for mutants, a place where he didn't have to worry about his powers. At the same time, he missed Richie and his other friends from high school. He knew his father wasn't going to tell them the details, but still.

He made his way down the hall with these thoughts in mind. His room was around here somewhere, but why was this place so big? Were there really going to be that many mutants coming here? It was hard for Virgil to believe. Still, it'd be nice to meet other mutants who weren't trying to beat him into a pulp. Maybe he'd even find other mutants who liked comic books and video games as much as he did.

Man was he going to miss Richie. As soon as he could, Virgil was going to have to start looking up addresses for local comic book stores.

Virgil stopped outside the room. "About time, how many rooms does this place HAVE anyway," Virgil muttered, setting his stuff down so that he could open the door. "Lucy, I'm home," he called out to the room as he opened it, figuring his roommate was already there.

He also hoped his roommate had a sense of humor.
