PostSubject: Zero-G: Season 1   Tue Jun 24, 2014 9:51 pm

Episodic w/ Loose Arcing Plot

Earth and Zero-G: The core setting of this series for "Season 1" is the facility known as Zero-G Academy.  It is a large, orbital space station, housing hundreds of "students", all with the goal of learning control of their Gravmatic powers.  The year is 2195.  On Earth, "G-Men" are a touchy subject.  People are wary of them, as they are infamous for their lack of control.  It isn't an outright prejudice, as much as it is a cautious mindset.  Granted, there are some who are outwardly opposed to gravmatics, believing them to be abominations and unnatural.

The training groups in Zero-G are broken down in groups of 1-2 G-Man instructor(s), a tech, and up to 8 students.  Smaller groups allows instructors to pay more individual attention to their "students".

In 2112, mankind discovered that it was not alone in this universe.  Communication and cooperation with alien societies became commonplace, these days.  In 2143, the first Warp Ship made its return to Earth soil.  In 2160, mankind began colonizing other worlds and moons, while championing a united galactic presence with other space-flight civilizations, establishing the first WA, that is the Worlds Assembly, accounting for 13 different civilizations, among the 41 known space-flight cultures.

Since the beginning of colonization, the population on Earth has been stabilizing.  There is more room now, and the cost of living has greatly decreased.  Urban expansion has practically halted.  The environment is being treated more respectfully, due to the emergence of clean energy and drones that clean waste.  In short, the world is a significantly better place.  That isn't to say it's utopian or perfect, but it is getting better.

G-Men with control of their abilities are invaluable in the labor force, as well, among other things.


Gravmatic Generations
The generations essentially determine what you'd be capable of doing.  As it stands now, only 4 generations exist: G1, G2, G3, and G4.  G1 was the first generation of gravmatics, and was the most powerful.  Now, however, few of this generation remain, as the initial outbreak was nearly 100 years ago.  The most recent is G4.  The generations grow less and less powerful as the genetic anomaly that causes these powers is passed down and diluted.

G1 does not necessarily mean that the user was born nearly 100 years ago.  It means that the user received their abilities by direct exposure to G Radiation in the womb, or in the early stages of life.  This is exceptionally rare, however.

There are certain abilities that only a G1 would be capable of.  The same can be said for a G2 and G3. G4, being the most recent generation of age, is capable of the fewest amount of Gravmatic feats, but that does not make them any less dangerous.  This is gravity, they're playing with.  It is one of the four fundamental forces of the universe, and should not be taken lightly.

Gravmatic abilities can manifest at any age.  It is difficult to track.  However, between the ages of 12 and 28 are when Gravmatic abilities are at their most erratic and involuntary.  It is for this reason that Zero-G scouts the globe, looking for cases.  If they find a Gravmatic in that age range that had never attended, then they take them.  It is illegal for Gravmatics between the ages of 12 and 19 to be on Earth for more than a cumulative week, every 3 months.  Everything is free, so families need not worry about paying education fees, room and board, or anything.  Training, itself, is continuous, and runs until the G-Man is nearing the age-out period.  When a G-Man reaches age 19, they take a test to be sure they have absolute control over their abilities.  Failing three sections of the test is an automatic fail, and they will return to Zero-G to continue training until they either test out, or reach the age of 28.  If a G-Man is brought to Zero-G but is already 19, they take one year of training and a test right after that.  If they fail, same thing.

G-Powers
Gravmatic Abilities have been tested and proven capable of a number of feats, which the "students" will be learning about.

G-Leap - A leap of superhuman proportions, in which the user decreases the pull of gravity, bringing them back down to Earth.  A G-Leap is followed by a slow descent, unless the user begins restoring gravity on the way down.

Crushing - The user creates a high intensity gravitational field around a target, crushing them under the force of massively increased gravity.

Stopping - The user projects a wall or bubble of gravity so fine(thin) and strong that it acts as a force field of sorts, blocking oncoming dangers.

Pull Field - The user emits a field around themselves, generating their own gravitational pull to draw things close to them.

Repel Field - The user emits a field around themselves exerts gravitational force, causing anything caught in it to be repelled.

Tilting - The user creates an area of effect, in which the direction of gravitational pull is changed.

Immobility - The user creates a gravitational effect around themselves or another, anchoring them to the ground, unable to move.

Zero-G Field - The user creates a temporary singularity, canceling gravity in the area of incident around it.

Wall Walking - The user redirects personal gravitational affect, allowing them to walk on surfaces that they otherwise couldn't.

Gyro-Kinetic Armor - The user generates an invisible field around themselves that is manipulable, allowing for the illusion of significantly enhanced strength, resilience, and agility.  A user can stand in front of a truck and not flinch, whilst the truck's grill would be caved in.  This ability is a combination of various other Gravmatic powers and requires a significant degree of mastery.

Flight - Something that became famous among G1's, flight is the rare ability of the user to completely manipulate the effects of gravity on themselves.  It has been analyzed that only G1's have been able to do this, historically.


The Plot

There is a very loose arcing plot.  In place of said plot are episodes, entirely dictated by the players.  The first few "episodes" will feature people (our characters) getting singled out by Zero-G to attend the academy.  Some will be less open to the idea than others, I imagine.  But we won't be totally confined to plots involving the academy.  There will be aliens and A.Is, and bounty hunters, and space criminals, and so forth and so on.

First and foremost, these are sign-up for main characters. You may have however many of these as you want. But if a character is not a main character, you needn't create a sign-up for them.

Jacquelyn "Jackie" Pryor

Physical
Gender: F
Age: 16
Height & Weight: 5'6", 126lbs
Eye, Hair, Skin Color: Grey Eyes, Black Hair, African/American
Posture: Usually stands with a slight hunch, her hands in her pockets, and looking down. Sits back or leaned against whatever is in front of her.
Appearance: Refer to Picture
Species: Human

Sociology
Socioeconomic Class: Lower Class
Occupation: N/A
Education: Zero-G Student
Home Life: Father supported the household as best he could. No mother or other guardians to speak of. Living from pay check to pay check.
Significant Relationships: None to speak of, aside from her Father.
Place in Community: Jackie was never particularly well liked, but also not particularly hated. When interacting with people, she had a tendency to be very short with them. She also never seemed to pay attention for long when people spoke to her. At worst, a few people would have a few rather choice words to say about her.
Amusements, Hobbies: Watching ships while tuning out the rest of the world, boxing, free running, collecting coins.

Psychology
Moral Standards: Jackie fits into a section of moral grey. Her alignment would be closest to pure Neutral. The best quote to describe how she thinks morally is "It seemed like the thing to do at the time."
Personal Ambitions: Jackie's only personal ambition is to get away from her run-down neighborhood, in her poor social position and just see things and experience things.
Frustrations: Jackie isn't particularly fond of overly energetic people. She also isn't fond of ignorance or machismo.
Temperament: Jackie is usually rather calm and collected, but there is a quiet anger built up under the surface.
Attitude toward life: Jackies lives by a very simple philosophy. "Life's too short to spend thinking about what you're going to do. If it seems like a good idea, go for it. Worry about looking stupid later. We all looked stupid before. You aren't special."
Complexes: Jackie has an acute aversion to noise. She is also a bit of a stickler about things being put orderly in her room.
Extrovert, Introvert: Jackie is rather introverted. There are few people that get her to speak in volumes. If she is particularly friendly with someone, it usually just means she'll listen more carefully.
I.Q: Very Gifted - 135-144

Gravmatics Only
Generation: G1
Gravmatic Specialty: Wall Walking, Flight

Backstory
Jackie, by all accounts, should have been born a G4. Her great grandfather was a G1. Her grandfather was a G2. Her mother was a G3. But somehow Jackie was exposed to G Radiation pre-birth. And not only was she exposed, but she was exposed to an irregular amount. How this happened is still a mystery. However, because of this abnormal occurrence, her Gravmatic abilities began to manifest in the womb itself. As a result, her mother died giving birth. Jackie grew up with that. The knowledge that she, quite literally, was the death of her mother.

Without her, Jackie's father became a wreck. He was soon unable to adequately support them. They had to move to a lower class neighborhood, where Jackie would attend school from the age of seven to sixteen. She avoided people, and kept to herself, most times, hardly communicating beyond group projects. Her father worried that this kind of behavior wasn't healthy. He tried to get her involved in some things. She ultimately wound up getting into boxing, and later free running.
