He could use several more weaknesses, if you balance one another than you're golden.

*Raises hand*
I know Ivy gets free ticket in (Didn't see her name. o.O ), but what about Astro? Didn't see him on approvals list, or denials list.

Spoiler:


The Awkward Vassal
Name- Auguste McCorvic
Age- 15
Alias- Mame the Mad Maid Mime, Mame

Appearance
Hair- Long, straight pale blonde hair that is always seen in a high pony tail. Bangs are normally down framing her face, but when working with chemicals or dirty things she’ll have them pulled back.
Height- 5’0”
Weight- 110 lbs
Eyes- Blue
Skin- Naturally her skin is a flushed peach color, in costume she wears smear resistant and water proof white make up all over her body.

Attire
Formal- Mame’ formal wear can vary from cocktail dresses, to tuxedos. She’s fairly small however so most of the formal attire she dawns is either too large, or old and poorly altered to fit her.
Casual- This also varies depending on the situation, in times of needing to not be seen, Mame will usually dawn jeans and whatever funny shirt she can find. But for her the preferred casual wear is her Mime costume.
Costume The costume can be described as a mish mash of different suits cobbled together to make one monochromatic mess. On the right side the suit is mostly black, puffing out into a zoot suit like shoulder line, the sleeves on either side taper down to just above her wrists, the gloves on both hands are black and white, black on the right, white on the left. The lower half of the top tapers down into a swim suit like design that exposes her hip bones. The cuffs on her right side are white with a black cuff link; the left side is the opposite with black cuffs and a white cuff link. The left side of the top is basically a cut off white version of the right. Four silver buttons adorn the front of the black side of the top, which makes up the majority of the top. The bottoms consist of a monochromatic platted mini skirt; her shoes are old styled and opposites, black and white on either side, including her socks. She wears a black domino mask to hide her identity. Underneath her top she wears a plain white dress shirt and a black tie.

Abilities

Physical Abilities

Experienced Kick boxer- Mame was taught in the Pradal Serey style of kick boxing which originates in Cambodia. It does not include core techniques or a system that emphasizes footwork, like in Muay Thai. Instead, it focuses more on winning a bout. It is well-known for its kicking technique, which generates power from hip rotation rather than snapping the leg, Pradal Serey consists of four types of strikes: punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes. The clinch is also used to wear down the opponent. Compared to other forms of South Asian kickboxing, Pradal Serey emphasizes more elusive and shifty fighting stances

Physical Endurance- Her life has led her down many tough roads, all of which a strong constitution for pain was required, she learned from a young age to mask her pain with positive reactions.

Mental Abilities

Apathy- her inability to feel when it comes to specific things helps her maintain some form of structure and stability. She doesn’t particularly feel for the lives of others, mainly people she doesn’t know or recognize as important. She can do many dirty jobs because of this without it leaving any trauma.

Metaphysical Abilities

None

Weaknesses

Human- She is human so she cannot withstand anything that over steps the bounds of regular mortals, she cannot breath in space or underwater and isn’t resistant to extreme heat or cold. Also she is only measured on the normal human scale of strength and wouldn’t last in a physical brawl against metahuman strength for very long.

Disorders and phobias

Addiction- Mame has a highly addictive personality and craves stimulus on an unnatural scale. The things she can become addicted too vary although substances such as drugs or alcohol aren’t on the list. People, sounds, tastes or sensations are usually what she latches onto and she can get caught on these things, seeking out ways to recreate them for the stimulation they bring, when allowed to continue it can spiral into an obsession that can deteriorate her physical wellbeing.

ADD- Mame suffers from ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) She has trouble focusing on multiple things at once and struggles to maintain her trains of thought. The signs of it include zoning out even in mid conversation, extreme distractibility which does not allow her to focus for very long, she can also struggle to complete tasks no matter how simple they may seem.

Adjustment Disorders- Mame also suffers an adjustment disorder which consist of her having maladaptive, or unhealthy, responses to stressful or psychologically distressing life events. As such she can respond in a few ways, she can shut down, she can become violent, or she can rarely get over said event.

Methyphobia- Fear of drinking alcohol.
Pharmacophobia- Fear of medications.
Categlophobia- Fear of being ridiculed.
Athazagoraphobia- Fear of being forgotten or ignored.

Impulsive disorders- Because of her many disorders and personality flaws she has grown accustom to doing things randomly and quickly in order to cope with her fears and anxieties. The disorder takes form in stealing and lying. This results in her having many stolen knick knacks that she doesn’t understand or cannot remember why she stole it, she is also easily caught in her lies as she doesn’t keep track of things she has said in the past, and contradicts herself frequently. She has a very gung ho way of doing things and more often then not will do something before really thinking about the consequences.

Strengths

Sociopathic- In Gotham City, and especially in Arkham Asylum, one has to be able to cope with the mentally unnatural and disturbing. Mames apathy towards death or physical pain of others allows her to experience these unnatural and disturbing events with any mental or emotional scars.

Resourceful-Even if her impulsive nature doesn’t allow her to calmly exist in normal situations, in combat or escape attempts from Arkham she is capable of thinking quickly and using whatever she can find to better her chances of success. She is not nearly as experienced in this as others and could hardly be called a female MacGyver, but her ability to use anything as a weapon or a tool could not be called anything short of impressive.

Fighting experience- Mame has been taught in the art of kick boxing and is very talented in it. She has gained the strength that comes from training vigorously. ( Although her year in Arkham has lessened this)

Personality
Mames personality could be described as fast paced and relentless, she is hyper happy one moment, then hyper kill you the next. She isn’t so much a homicidal maniac (like her fellow inmates) but more willing to do whatever it takes to further her own wants. She can be very selfish and self centered, struggling with the concept that the world doesn’t revolve around her and things that maker her happy. But she has been known to do good for the sake of some lingering feelings of good and the desire to assist justice. She was never diagnosed with bipolar disorder because her hormones and internal chemicals do not drop to lows and highs, she is simply hyper sensitive to many things and reacts drastically to everything. When asked why she would not take medication for her ailments, which could easily allow her to function like a average individual she would say ‘ I hate how it makes me feel’ She has grown addicted to her own way of thinking and gets a buzz alone from her sporadic crazed trains of thought. She has a severe family complex and will thusly name any female or male ‘mommy’ or ‘daddy’ based off of whether or not they make her happy and how long she interacts with them. She also takes a fancy to masochism as pain is very stimulating.

History

Auguste McCorvic was born to Bryant McCorvic, a struggling classical actor and Ferda McCorvic, a compulsive gambler and alcoholic. Her parents were not only lacking in every positive quality of a parent but her mother also was in deep with the Irish mob. It was a wonder she made it out of babyhood, her mother was very physically abusive to her weaker father and Auguste.

When she reached toddlerhood where she could talk and comprehend others, she was very hyper active and would repeat actions in hopes of getting stimulation from it, but she was also quickly bored and would throw tantrums in order to get attention from her parents, negative or positive. She of course was suffering from her ADD and impulse problems, but her parents merely diagnosed it as her being mentally retarded.

In order to spare themselves her incessant babbling and pestering they would ignore her completely, not making eye contact or giving into her pleas and sometimes destructive behavior. However when drunk her mother would lose her temper and beat Auguste, only exacerbating the behavioral problems even more so, leading the child to believe that physical pain was connected to attention, and therefore a good thing.

After awhile Auguste father managed to tabulate enough money to take his daughter to get diagnosed by a doctor, although it was a cheap unofficial doctor who gave them medications that would ease the child’s symptoms. Instead it made her very ill and numbed her entirely. She hated this and getting her medicated was a fight that usually resulted in beatings, which was confusing for her as she was getting mixed signals, she was getting attention but in a way she did not like, which she couldn’t comprehend.

After an incident where her mother forced the drugs on her and nearly forced Auguste to overdose, her parents gave up the drugs, mostly because they couldn’t afford it and didn’t want the attention if their child died.

Auguste was never allowed to attend school and was taught by the television, where she first caught sight of the super criminals of Gotham. Her favorite channel was always the news, her favorite characters, The Joker, Two face and Summer Gleeson. She began concocting a new persona for herself in order to imitate the stimulating sensations she would gain from something as simple as the sight of one of Gotham’s villains. She kept this a secret however, the persona Mame would not surface until much later.

When she was about 6 years old the mob had become fed up with her parents’ inability to pay off their debt. They became a liability and the boss of the mob, one Mason O’Feir personally wanted to perform the hit as Ferda used to be one of his girls back in her youth, in his mind she deserved to get off’d by someone a bit better then some random lackey.

Boss Mason and three of his men arrived at the house and blindsided the family, breaking into their home unannounced and after a quick round with Bryant all three McCorvic’ were restrained and given a nice little pep talk by the boss before he shot and killed Ferda.

Mason was not however without mercy and took pity on the distracted babbling child, although he was amused by her lack of concern for her safety and the death of her mother, he found her cooing irritating. He had her untied and taught her then and there how to shoot a gun, helping her commit her first murder, which was the death of her father.

After this, the mob cleaned up the scene and Boss Mason took in the mentally unstable child. She was brought up within the large family of the Irish mob. Given a type of rigid structure she had never had before, educated in a foreign form of combat and properly cared for by her new family she soon worked out of her frequent temper tantrums and destructive behavior.

Even with the new structure however she was maladjusted and struggled with new people and concepts, clinging to faces she knew and becoming a sort of recluse. She served the mob as a lackey for a long time, working within a select group of members who closely interacted with Boss Mason.

She was very vocal about wanting to become a costumed criminal and upon turning 14 declared that she would be going into business for herself. Knowing the child Mason figured it was just a new game to distract the awkward teenager and allowed it without any attempts to stop her. Her loyalty for the family that gave her so much attention was too deep for her to rat them out to the cops if she were caught.

Her first crime in Gotham was a failed attempt to rob a bank with a green plastic squirt gun. Auguste forsook her true name and dawned her secret persona Mame the Mad Maid Mime, which she had gotten inspiration for from one of her fathers’ home movies of his college performance as a mime on the steps of Gotham City hall.

She attempted to convince the tellers her squirt gun was filled with acid, and that she would kill the first person who tried to call for help. She did not lie, after the security guards apprehended her and one of the tellers called the police she stabbed one of the guards with a fountain pen. She was sent to Arkham Asylum and placed in a high security cell where she could not damage others. Gagged and strapped in a straight jacket as she had the bad habit of injuring herself, due to the solitude and lack of stimulation that entailed.

She lived in Arkham for a year after being caught, too wrapped up in her own suffering to even attempt to escape, though she would have violent fits and revert to her tantrum throwing whenever she was forced to medicate. The rehabilitation and therapy attempts did not seem to work on her as she did not want to be cured of whatever the doctors thought was wrong with her. After the assault and rape attempt on a fellow inmate, she was forced into solitude and was sedated whenever allowed to interact with others.

After awhile she became familiar with the structure and faces of Arkham and calmed significantly, behaving more like a person then a caged animal she was allowed to once again return to a less secure cell. Which allowed her to begin her plans of escape, what with the faces surrounding her she was stimulated enough not to be sent into a crazed frenzy, even being allowed to move around her cell without straight jackets or gags.

After the so called death of Commissioner James Gordon and multiple sources saying that it was her self proclaimed rival Batman, she broke out of Arkham. With the world in such a state she felt it was time for her to dawn her costume once more and decided to become a fighter of justice. Not knowing anything about being ‘good’ however she merely moved into a empty theater in the projects of Gotham and started killing off thugs. Hoping to get the attention of other crime fighters or villains.




I hope it's not too late Mercy!

Sweet mother of Sir Conan A. Doyle, that was amazing Blood! I emphatically approve! You're a role-model of how character sheets should look for all of us!


Concerning Denials, the main reason you're overpowered is because you're not balanced. With strengths, there's weaknesses. Balance them out and you will never ever be overpowered. Every Superman has his kryptonite. If your character just looks downright ridiculous then that's another story. I suggest if that's the only issue look up superhero costumes.

Yeah, the origins was confusing to write, too. Basically, before his death, the original astral made a spiritual projection of himself that turned out more of a fresh and blood doppelganger. The doppelganger was a manifestation of his soul, living on even though the original body died. The soul still can be killed(Just as easily as any human), although it doesn't age.

Should I just edit that in, instead?

Uhh, I wanna know what you mean by "feed." As in Kill civilians in order to survive? If so the only logical thing for the GCPD to do is to retaliate with brute force in order to prevent collateral damage or civilian casualties.

XD uh sry I'm just remebering to New Titans when Snow said she loved how the heroes (Sky mostly) were burtally masacuring the villians XD But Nickoli and the others don't kill anymore, scince their group V.A.M.P was made. Ok I made it up now but it should work right? Really, Sky and Jersey were killing off hobos in New Titans, and they're in. Never mind though cuz u gave them a free pass in... But sense I said in the CSs that they were working on vampire and human relations, doesn't that sorta say, 'We no eat you now'?
Sorry for longest of this, running on a thought and my first Monster X)

The Mayor of Gotham would greatly appreciate it if you do not feed on it's citizens. Even though they maybe homeless, it doesn't make them less valuable.

Well when Jersey was dying, she promised him two things, one that she would live for both of them, and two that she would be a hero. The second one was one they made while being experimented on. But as said in Jersey's CS he came back. He broke the promise and became a bad guy. Their story continues to Jersey turning Sky into a vampire thanks to some vamp friend. Because of the experiments done on Jersey and Sky, they aren't like normal vampires. Thus can only live on human blood, but they now know that they don't have to kill someone to live. Sum it up? Cuz I confused myself. I could wriite a cheesy vampire/werewolf/Jersey Devil love story about these two xD take that Twilight!

So M, in or out?
