Player (nickname, handle)/ LJ: Nix
AIM (if you have one): BlackInkedWords
Character Name: Christina Frost
Character LJ (if applicable): whosperfectnow
Physical description (face, build, weight): five-feet-eight, slim athletic build, light brown hair, hazel eyes, excellent posture. She has a pretty but intense face, particularly when she's focused on something or angry. Can be a slight bit intimidating.
Birthday: December 13th
PB: (If using one.) Nikki Reed
Abilities: Telepathy and technopathy. Limited diamond form.
Weaknesses and flaws: She is both arrogant and insecure at the same time, which often leads to her not playing well with others. She has something of a chip on her shoulder and never quite feels good enough even though she always acts like she thinks she's better than everyone else. Power-wise, she can't control her diamond form. It pops up whenever it wants to and not always when it's needed. She's also impatient and tends to use her telepathy to get what she wants in a conversation instead of waiting for it to be offered more naturally.
Character location/Home: Transient, presently New York City
Alignment (villain, hero etc): undecided, though she longs to be a hero.
Relatives (living/dead?): Emma Frost (mother). She has no knowledge of her father or if she has other relatives outside of Emma. She's lead a sheltered life.
Backstory: (Note: I am basing this off of the Wiki where I read that Emma left Xavier's after recovering. If I am reading things correctly, she went back to the Massachusetts Academy to teach Generation X. If I am missing something, please let me know and I will gladly switch stuff up.) Christina, also known as Chris, has lived her entire life in Massachusetts at the Massachusetts Academy. She grew up being educated and trained with other mutants but few knew she was actually Frost's daughter. Emma never openly acknowledged the girl and was particularly tough on her. Having expressed uncommonly precise technopathy from an early age, Christina chose to leave Massachusetts at age 18 to go to New York and pursue a "mainstream" education involving computers and technology. However two years in, the young woman found it impossible to reconcile her upbringing and training with being a "normal human" and dropped out of school. Depressed, she was contemplating suicide when the events in Central Park ocurred. This changed her outlook on life and gave her a sense of purpose and a plan.
How do you plan to introduce the character to the game?: Chris will approach the X-Men and offer them her help.
What are you planning to do with this character? Attempt to join the X-Men, be badass.
What do you want to see happen with this character?: I'd like to see Chris come into her own as a mutant and as a person, to find herself outside of the shadow of her mother.
She had recorded the news coverage of Central Park events and hadn't stopped watching them. Her mother had called twice, but Chris had let each call go to voicemail and since Emma couldn't get into her head (funny quirk, that--the White Queen couldn't touch her own daughter's mind) Chris was left only with the images and sounds on the television screen. The giant citadel, the robotic horses, the carnage. Apocalypse and his Riders were gone, but for how long? Certainly this was the start of something.
She clicked off the television and paced the living room, hands in her hair. She'd left her mother to get away from all of this nonsense, of mutants and battles and saving the day bullshit or whatever it was her mother had wanted her to do. With Emma, she was never quite sure. The "real world" hadn't proven any better, though and idly she glanced at the coffee table and the bottles of pills neatly lined up, untouched and waiting for her. Suddenly it didn't seem like the right answer anymore, but what she'd seen on television did.
"Damnit," she whispered to herself as she grabbed her jacket and keys. There was no denying destiny at this point and as she got into her car it wasn't Massachusetts she was heading for; it was the X-Men.
|Flashback: Independence Day

All day she had bitten her tongue and followed orders, but when midnight rolled around and Sebastian Shaw came to Christina with a birthday "gift," she had a little surprise of her own. December 13th wasn't her birthday; it was independence day.
A little after one she arrived on Julian's doorstep not entirely certain she'd be welcome, but it was the only place she could think to go.

Justin was at work and Tina was home alone. She still didn't understand why he insisted on having his own place when the truth was that he spent the night with her every night, particularly now that she was recovering from her "car accident." Nevermind that she was nearly completely back to her normal self.
Tina had let herself sleep in a bit, made some lunch, and had settled in on the couch to watch the Science channel. There had been a program about mermaids on History, another discussion of what was fact and what was fiction. Tina had opted to skip it. She had a few childhood memories that weren't contaminated by darker deeds; she knew damn well what was real and what was not.
That and it just wasn't a day for more painful nostalgia.
