might as well do one of these because i don’t know whether this assclown is coming or going lately. nathan wilson, the resident grim reaper for hire. deathstroke at your service. who once was a bounty hunter tip toeing in illicit things, is now a yoga instructor still into illicit things. don’t let his hushed steps fool you though. this surly bastard has lived in boston for a little more over half of his life. he lived in new mexico long before that. was a former functioning addict to pain meds, which was brought on by the injuries sustained from two accidents. one motorcycle accident in his mid-twenties, and the other getting his ass beat nearly to death in his rookie year as a bail agent. thanks to his cv experience, it’s riddled him pain free but he still harbors addictive tendencies that branch off into means of coping this wild ass life. more more more.

it's only taken me 84 years but finally, i'm ready to introduce kennedy kane (aka batwoman). a 30-year-old military brat, she's always had a hard time keeping her feet grounded in one spot for long periods of time. she's lived in four different countries and too many states to count, her longest run being her life in north carolina during her high school years with her time enlisted in the marine corps in camp pendleton runner-up. her father, ethan kane is a colonel in the army and her mother and twin sister passed away in 1993. kennedy was always the more reserved of the twins before their deaths, but started opening up more as she got older.and she's less reserved when it comes to letting people in her life than her cv counterpart.

she's a daddy's girl that's currently lost in life after finding out her dad had an affair and that she has a half-sister (~manteio). after discovering the location of her sister, she decided to move to boston in an attempt to start over but also get to know beatrix. but first, she has to find the right way to introduce herself without completely destroying anyone's life. kennedy is fun, a little absentminded at times but bright and mostly reliable. still new to boston (seven months into her time), kennedy is settling in to start a life in one place after finally landing a job as ~arcreactor's personal assistant and getting her own place to call home. i'd love to get her some friends, some hook ups and people she's met during her travels. really, just anything and everything i'll take it!

hello lineart-art-art-art. i bring you meggan, weird goblin xman lady, but in the au she goes by miel andrews. she was born to a small town american woman living her best life in france, hence the name. it's the french word for honey. she's 30 and
grew up in california, specifically la, where she spent most of her life working on becoming a comedienne. she started out in commercials in her early teens, then decided she preferred comedy. joined a bunch of improv groups until she was 18 and moved to chicago. there she decided stand up was more her speed. she was okay, could get a couple laughs but not amazing. she did make a lot of friends though, which is how she got paid gigs a lot. she flew into new york a few times for shows, but mainly stuck to chicago.

she stayed in chicago until about 2011, when she was visiting family in boston and a friend asked if she could fill a set at a club there in boston, so she did it and got basically zero laughs except for one guy who bought her a drink and she sort of fell for him and moved. besides being a failed comic, she was a photographer's assistant while she worked on a lifestyle blog. she got pregnant in 2014 and said blog turned into a mommy blog where she tells people what the latest trends are and goes on about being a mom and she dresses her kid like a hipster, usually for free (for your enjoyment). being a mother isn't her only identity, but it does pay some bills. she's pretty laid back, fun loving and very open about things. she can talk your ear off about pretty much anything and tries to be hilarious at it. if no one laughs she likes to remind people she failed as a comic (although technically she retired when she had her kid). she loves yoga and sometimes hates herself for being so basic, but she has those tendencies.

so far i've got a husband in [info]labwork, and a yoga buddy/soon to be mom friend in [info]aranha. i'd love everything else. i could use friends from chicago especially (if anyone has lived there at all from 2004-2011), people she's worked with via photography (events and weddings mainly, but also some family studio stuff), some nice lady pals to hang out and drink wine with and pretend she's the miranda of the group, and definitely a cousin or two from the area and anything else, we can brainstorm! also other xpeoples.

hi guys! this is ben peterson, your friendly neighborhood spiderish person. he's a 34 year old emergency room doctor at massachusetts general and was born and raised in queens but has been living in boston since 2001 when he moved there to attend mit. i have him mostly figured out so i thought i should throw him out there for some more connections. he's a pretty easy person to get to know. his job is intense and he takes it seriously, so the rest of the time he likes to loosen up and have a good time. he'll probably talk your ear off about any obscure topic that he knows even a little bit about, and he genuinely likes to make people laugh but also uses humor as a crutch sometimes. he was an only child growing up so he's used to being on his own. people that he truly connect with and who have been in his life for a long time are like family to him, but he hasn't been exceptionally good at romantic relationships. as far as lines go, he has known [info]ductility since they were kids, went to college with [info]labwork, and is best friends and former roommates with [info]sensed. he's also got friends in [info]synanthrope, [info]fiery, and [info]epsilon. he could use a couple of exes, neighbors to hang out with, people he worked for or with while he was in college and poor af, and whatever else you can think of. let's make some magic!

[riddled]
hello everyone! i'm terrible at these so please forgive me in advance but this is theodore nashton, better known as edward nygma aka the riddler. he's a thirty five year old boston native and thrice a graduate from MIT. he currently holds a phd in electrical engineering and works at mitsobishi's local electrical laboratory as their head of research and development. he lost his parents at a young age to a car crash and with no other family he ended up lost in the foster care system for fifteen years before eventually aged out. he was shuffled between households, several of which were particularly abusive and he threw himself headfirst into schoolwork as an escape, eager for any excuse to be away from home when it presented itself. it ended up paying off in the end and he was offered a full ride scholarship to mit as soon as he graduated from high school. college was an escape for him, but he struggled socially. he'd been boisterous in elementary and high school, something of a class clown to deflect from what was happening to him at home but he'd never really made any friends out of fear that they'd want to come stay at his home and he'd have to reveal how he lived. it wasn't until he started getting involved in trivia at a local bar, a hangout for students from colleges across the city, that he found a group that he finally found he could be himself with. after graduating from mit with his bachelors degree, he dove directly into obtaining his masters, not wanting to disrupt his own routine by taking a break from classes.

the constant drain of classes that were far more challenging, however, burned him out and by the end of the program he found he was no longer certain about his course of study or even what he wanted to do with his life. with no real ties to the city he packed up and left for the furthest place he could afford, florida, where he spent a year working for minimum wage at several of the local theme parks in positions that ranged from maintenance to working as a game attendant. the pitiful paychecks and lack of intellectual stimulation eventually convinced him to return to boston, where he finally completed his studies, obtaining his phd and taking a position at a local research lab. in his spare time he's currently working on a video game based on puzzles and brain teasers (think myst meets fallout) but he's only revealed that to a few people that he particularly trusts to help him test and debug.

he currently captains a local bar trivia team, which meets on thursday evenings once a week at a rotating schedule of bars. if your character is interested in being part of it the more the merrier! personality wise, he can be a bit obnoxious. he has little regard for social graces, speaks out of turn and has a tendency to speak in riddles (metaphorically) when he's put too much on the spot. he can be a passive aggressive asshole if someone rubs him the wrong way, but his wit and sarcastic sense of humor seem to generally deflect from the rest of his personality flaws. he held a guinness world record for two years and likes to brag about that to anyone who'll listen when he's had enough to drink. connections wise he has a longtime friend in [info]jokers and a childhood friend in [info]evade as well as an ex from his early days at university in [info]candygirl. i'd love to find a few more exes, maybe a girl or two he's pined awkwardly over in the past, people he rubbed the wrong way while he was at school, or who he's offended in the past by being his usual obnoxious self. if there's something he could possibly fill, i'd love to hear it. basically give me everything you've got!

Hello everyone and happy Friday! I've got a preliminary bio written up and I just held this guy, so I present Luke Charles Walsh, aka Black Panther. He's 38, a Boston native and is an extremely successful venture capitalist where he made his fortunate as an early/angel investor in some of the more popular and widely used phone apps out there. Now his main focus is philanthropic prospects for minority and women owned ventures and he's trying to do good since he has a sacrilegious amount of money. His father was born in Dorchester and his mother immigrated from Algeria in the early 60s to escape the persecution of natives who worked with the French colonial government at the time during the independence movement. He's very close to his family, at home and abroad, and after working straight ever since he was 17, he is nearing the point in his life and career where he feels like he wants to do something more than just make money by investing in new apps to deliver gluten-free donuts via cruelty free puppydrone to your PO box.

Personality wise he's a passionate person and doesn't do anything half-assed. He's thrown himself in his work ever since he was left at the altar by [info]rains and considers himself to be cursed when it comes to dating and relationships. He's got a very deep, very fond love of jazz music and is a talented pianist. But his career and his family always pulled him in other directions unfortunately.

For connections, he has a genius-daughter in the form of [info]prodigy and is still very close with her mother [info]maat. He has a very close kinship/former 'one that got away for a damn good reason' with [info]rains. I know I chatted with some of you fine people over at pbads, but I'd love to get anything and everything going with him!

[quickstart]
hello hello, i am the worst at these so bear with me friends. this is jenna belmont, aka jesse quick! she's 30, native to queens, ny but moved to boston at age eleven and has called it home since. her father works as a sports television producer and her mother runs a retro themed diner that serves burgers and all the classics (named quick burgers. i know, i know). they divorced when she was young but jenna is still really fond of both. she went to college all the way across the country in california where she discovered a passion for teaching and kids. so she decided to become a physical education teacher and came back to boston to make it official. she's now going on her fourth year teaching as well as coaching for a few teams and really loves it for the most part. in the last two years, the family diner has been growing in business and in turn jenna has also taken change of a food truck for it that she manages for a lot of events and weekly pit stops. while she doesn't do much of the cooking herself, if you charm her you might get extra french fries!

personality wise, she's a big ball of energy, the type who really likes to dig in and get dirty sometimes. she's often goofing around and doesn't take herself seriously most of the time. believes in tough love because expressing her emotions doesn't always come easy, but when you do have her adoration it goes deep. for connections, she's cousins with [info]runs, besties with [info]newsies, brofriends with [info]running, adores [info]stability and i know there are at least a few others i'm leaving out here so let me know.

if we had talked briefly in pbads and never finished feel free to hit me up! that goes for everyone really, i'm game for anything so come brainstorm with me! no dc/marvel-hero/villain barriers here. i'd love to get an ex (the stranger in cv the better tbh), all sorts of friends or maybe not so friends because she can be too much sometimes. i know she also has some other cv connections among you all so i'd love to make something fun with that too!

hello! this is bruna bonilla aka fire, a 36 year old boston native who fled to new york city at the age of 18 to pursue a career as an actress and model. her parents came over from brazil shortly before she was born and were fairly strict and traditional. they both worked hard to provide for their family, which often left the kids to fend for themselves. despite their best efforts to instill hard work and strong values into their children, bruna had other plans. from an early age, she was always attempting to steal the spotlight and show off so it was only a surprise to her parents (who were living in denial) when she announced she was moving to nyc to become an actress. this did not go over well, but she ignored their warnings and took up any and all jobs she could once she made the move. at the age of 19, she got her big break and was cast on a currently unnamed soap opera and was on the show until the age of 25 when she was unceremoniously killed off. during this time, she'd also gotten married to someone wealthy, mismanaged her own money, and then when he left her shortly after she was killed off, she ended up having to return to boston with her tail between her legs. nowadays, she's doing some sort of administrative work (i haven't decided what yet, exactly) so if anyone needs a secretary, executive assistant, etc let me know! personality wise, she's very outgoing and charming, likes attention and being in the spotlight, but has a tendency to get overly passionate about things and occasionally struggles to keep her temper in check and/or not act irrationally.

line wise, [info]tora is her best friend and she's known her forever, [info]gadgetry is her friend turned ex turned friend, and i believe she's going to be friends with [info]skeets as well. she could use anything and everything! drinking buddies and fellow winos, exes and former flings of varying degrees of seriousness, some more lady friends, someone she's rubbed the wrong way and vice versa, neighbors in arrowrest, etc. let's brainstorm!

this is oliver bronson, also known as bane. he was a semi-professional kickboxer until he got hurt. this led to an addiction to painkillers, and through his work as a pharmacist, was able to procure said painkillers. he was born and raised in florida and has moved around a lot since graduating college. he is very careful about when and how much he steals and has never been caught, but he knows that suspicions have been aroused, and that's usually about the time he moves again and takes a new position in a new city. within the last couple of months, he's moved to boston and taken a position as the lead hospital pharmacist at mass gen. he's still obsessed with kickboxing and keeps fit. his injury that led to his addiction no longer bothers him, but if someone happens to catch him popping a pill he says that once in a while it acts up. he doesn't do commitment, at least not very well, and the one time he thought he might actually go for it, it didn't work out. he's been a little jaded ever since. personality-wise he's charming and friendly, he's outgoing and loves the outdoors. he's also a bit vain and gets a little thrill out of seeing people in pain, particularly those who are on the other side of the boxing ring.

he has an ex-fiancee in [info]manteio, a colleage at mass gen in [info]goldenblast and a drinking buddy in [info]refuled. still working out a line with [info]maat, but he could use anything and everything. long lost cousins, new friends, any other floridian transplants, colleages at mass gen, tinder dates, you know the drill! gimme all you got!

hi, everyone. this is james andrews, your friendly neighborhood captain britain. he's a 32 year old london native who moved to the US for college and decided to stick around. he did his undergrad at MIT where he studied bioengineering and graduated in 2008. after he college, he moved across the river and started his PhD in genetics and genomics at BU. he finished his PhD in 2013, and after that, he started working as a geneticist for big pharma. a bit of a workaholic, he flamed out pretty hard in 2016 and quit his job in hopes of finding something else that would let him spend more time with his family. eventually, he got into house flipping. he's still pretty new to it, but he loves it and is working on his third renovation. when he's not working, he's playing dad to his adorable kid. he follows arsenal religiously and what little spare time he has is often spent watching sports, shooting the shit with friends, or at his favorite local watering hole, though the latter doesn't happen too often now that he's a family man.

he's married to [info]elfin and together they have a three year old son. unbeknownst to pretty much everyone involved, [info]totality is his half-sister and [info]hitokiri is his half-cousin. i'm working out friendship lines with [info]tsume and [info]goldenblast, if they'll still have me, but beyond that, he could use everything. friends from college and grad school, childhood friends he would've known from london, old coworkers or other folks he'd know from his previous or current career, neighbors, drinking buddies...seriously, everything. let's figure something out!

this is alexander lucas. late 30s. boston native. currently between jobs. he runs political campaigns, sometimes for people he actually even likes. he's got a pretty wry sense of humor, can give you shit 24/7 especially if he likes you, and is very driven. so not much difference from his CV counterpart lex luthor except without the whole evil murdering genius thing (for now).

i do have his bio up if you wanna read more about him. he's got family in ~italian and a childhood friend in ~tactitian currently but not much other than that!

alright alright, never fear...bart is here!

bart is 19 and is currently a full-time student at boston university. he works as a part-time waiter at a five star restaurant located at boston's north end district. like his dc counterpart, he is very impulsive and quite reckless with everything that he does. once upon a time, bart bought 4 pairs of jordan's with his mediocre salary and was living off of ramen noodles for two weeks before he got paid again; not a proud moment in his life but as long as he looked good walking down the street, right? bart is also super smart, like genius smart, but he fears people finding out and labeling him as a nerd. he grew up in a well-to-do family of doctors so he's constantly being pushed by his parents to pursue the medical field. although he would love to make his parents proud one day, right now he's more focused on living his life to its fullest before anything else. he also takes pride in his "cross country days", and will start up a conversation with anyone who's willing to listen to him gloat about his high school years and how he was the fastest boy in his whole school then, and now how he's the fastest man alive. so yes, there's a big ego there.

aside from being thoroughly misguided, he craves the tutelage and guidance from someone who's willing to sit down and listen to what he has to say. he has a good heart and thrives on making the closest to him happy, even more so than himself. again, he might seem like he doesn't take anything seriously but deep down he has dreams and aspirations like the next person.

i'm sure everyone knows his dc counterpart, i mean who doesn't?! bart is so fluffy and cute! ^_^ most of the lines i have right now are with the flash fam, so lines with other dc characters (connections or no connections) are welcome. teen titans, where ya at?! other youngin's would also be great. classmates, best mates, family members that are none-dc related.

I think I'm finally ready with this one. She is Hudson Jain, 32, originally from many many places. She was born in New York City but has lived in Virginia, Washington D.C., New Delhi India, Bourduex France and finally Boston. Her mom is a member of the US Foreign Service, her father is an engineer in the employ of NASA. She is an assistant director for admissions at Boston University, focusing on South Asia. She's American bond but of East Indian descent on both sides of her family. She's sarcastic, hardheaded, loves her wine and pink nail polish and is unapologetic about embracing her heritage.

She's also the other side of Jaina Hudson, a DC villain who can split herself into two separate bodies, herself and the original elusive chanteuse, White Rabbit.

Right now I have some tentative connections with [info]jokers and [info]candygirl and would love some more connections with the other Bat villains. If you answered me on [info]pbads I'm sorry I didn't get back right away but I have been wrestling with her bio all week. I'd love to work some things out now!

I thiiink I'm ready to bite the bullet with this and hopefully get some lines set up to round things off! I have with me here Bruce Banner, in one fist, and Brandon Bataille in the other. He's 35 going on 15, and an auto mechanic at Pier Transmission. Has been for the past 7 or 8 months. Prior to that, he was a repairman in Utah for almost two decades, where he still has a wife and three kids. His parents live near Vegas, where he was born, so all the love for slot machines, Elvis, the desert, camping, wild wilderness things like that. He's not much of a city slicker, but he tries. He's not much of anything, really, but he tries. (I feel like I'm already in character, this is so completely awkward.) He is so completely awkward, super chill repressed anger issues can do that to a person. Now that that's out of the way, give me some fun things and I'll give you some fun things in return?! I have no idea what he even needs, other than redemption for his backstory... Maybe some god-fearing folk, temptations in the form of blondes/drinking buddies, people to ogle Mustangs with, long-lost family, I'm up for brainstorming anything!

i haven't done one of these in forever and a day and i really need to get cracking on editing the lines in her bio, so, here we go.

this is erin fairchild, a thirty six year old boston native who happens to be the one, the only emma frost in cv aka your resident vodka aunt of the x-men. erin grew up in high society, her father is based on robert kraft meaning he owns the kraft group (now called the fairchild group) as well as the new england patriots that he bought when erin was a preteen for the hell of it because that's what rich people do. like emma frost, erin grew up with rich, critical and distant parents but lucked out by finding her niche as the creative one in the family and dreaming of going to school for fashion design. her parents decided to indulge her once they gained more status and everything was gravy until her brother committed suicide while erin was studying in paris and since then, her relationship with her family is tense at best. her father sensed that she was about to jump ship and roped her back in by helping her get her fashion line and string of boutiques - aptly named "white queen" off the ground and she begrudgingly accepted it. erin worked three times as hard to prove her worth and is a successful designer and businesswoman. her attitude about life is very que sera, sera and she tries to live life without regret by grabbing opportunity by the horns but maintains a rather laid back vibe about her.

as for lines, here we go: she has a sister in [info]meridian where they often try to kill each other during cv weeks but get along decently during au, a step cousin in [info]project, cousins in [info]iciness and [info]lockheed, a childhood best friend in [info]kindling, another childhood friend in [info]intoreds, a pseudo brother in [info]slushpuppie, a serious ex/friend in [info]magnetic, another ex in [info]solitude (i think?), [info]elusive is her former personal assistant, [info]arcreactor is a fellow rich moron/ex-fling, [info]grafts is a family friend and haver of #richpeopleproblems, and an employee in [info]illusionary.

breathes. so while i spruce up her lines, i can go for anything you may have to offer me and if anything needs to be amended, let me know. i'll even slide some customs your way too~

i'm hoping to get him done in time for adds, but this is alec herrin, a landscape maintenance worker at Harvard. he's going to be 41 this month and has potentially been in Boston his whole life (depending on a possible sibling line). he's swamp thing in the comics and has a fairly tragic reason why he's no longer using his chemistry degree in his career. he's got a green thumb and is working on starting up his own nursery soon. but the only connections I have for him so far are with ~watersheds who he knows from Harvard and ~tempestas who he works with on a charity project. he possibly has a sister if it works out with ~enchantress, but that's it! he's a little bit of an oddball, takes most things way too literally and possibly has a touch of asperger's. but he's genuine and sweet and even funny when he gets in the mood. hit me up!

this is levi edison aka loki. he was born in belgium, but was basically raised in boston by his aunt and uncle. he'll be turning 35 this year, and he is the ceo of breakscape llc. he owns a chain of breakrooms and escape rooms. breakrooms are placed where you can go pay to break stuff like plates or furniture or both. escape rooms are places you go to be locked in a room with a group of people and try to solve your way out of it aka escape out of it. his first locations were in boston, which he personally managed, so your character could have possibly have met him before the businesses grew. he formerly co-owned the knight moves cafe, which is a board game cafe. he sold off his interest in that a couple of years ago.

he's a relatively friendly and personable guy. he will try anything once. he loves dressing up, costumes parties, partying in general, has a hedonistic side to him. he's pretty much all charming on the outside with some depravity on the inside.

i really suck at lines posts (who else feels like this), so just throw stuff at me. he's bisexual, so flings of either gender, though i'd really love a male one as he has a couple of female ones right now and no males ones. neighbors former or present, though if present they'd also have a neighbor in [info]mocking. people who know him via his business. friends. anything. just give me all the things.

current lines are:
[info]tactician - brother who is actually his cousin; [info]mocking - next door neighbor of at least 3 yrs, close friend; [info]casting - good friend, former almost something; [info]tempestas - a client of hers, confidential; [info]jokers - cousin via his dad; [info]cyberion - potential employee if the interviews work out; and i might be missing some, so hit me up again.
