Autumn O'Reilly

Post by Catigatoroala on Wed Sep 24, 2014 1:38 am

Name: Autumn "Otto" O'Reilly

Age: 16 (Birthday: November 15)

Years at Institute: 0

Family: Cameron "Cammie" O'Reilly (mother); Timothy O'Reilly (father)

History: As a child, Otto lived with her parents in Chicago, Illinois, in a nice apartment near Lake Michigan. Her father, who held a high position in a large corporation, provided extremely well for their family. Her mother stayed at home to take care of Otto, knowing that although she could easily hire a nanny for her little girl, it was best to raise her herself. So she did. The family of three was very happy.
        Otto was around eight years old when everything fell apart. A rivaling company's innovative new products were being received very well, and they had started playing dirty too - they discreetly spread rumors about corruption in her father's corporation which contributed to their decreasing popularity. They started losing money. Cammie told the worried young Autumn that everything would be okay. Tim, on the other hand, was quiet and tense for weeks. Finally, one day, Otto and Cammie were waiting at home for him to return from work, and he never did. He had taken what money he could from the corporation, scrounged up all the money in his bank accounts, and fled. And it was revealed later that the rumors the rivaling company had spread had been true - in fact, it had been about Otto's dad. Tim had been using his high position to take more than his own share of money from the business for a while, before his desertion. He left when he did, in fear that the police would catch onto him soon. Otto was devastated by the loss of her father, not understanding yet that he had been too greedy, and then had left her and her mother with very little in a cowardly act of self-preservation.
        Cammie immediately sold their place in exchange for a small, cheap apartment. Life became tougher on them from here on out, and very different than what they had become used to, but Cammie persevered and managed to get a job that could at least pay the bills, and the price to continue Otto's education. Meanwhile, Otto started to hear very negative things from her peers about her father. They often blamed her for his illegal actions, and ridiculed her because he had abandoned her. The only reason she was able to deal with it was because of her mother, who provided a positive energy in her life, reminding her that none of it was Otto's fault and that they were going to be fine, just the two of them together. And throughout these years of being ostracized and dealing with financial hardships, Otto realized exactly how strong her mother was, and came to admire her even more.
        Otto met her wisp in the middle of her metalworking class in the second semester of Grade 10. The thing was just floating around her, doing what Otto thought looked like studying her, and feeling curious, she poked at it. The wisp took that as a signal to bond. Once Otto realized what had happened, and that she now had powers, she told her mom, who had even less idea of what to make of it than her daughter. However, she encouraged and reassured Otto, and they went on. Her junior year arrived, and halfway through the first semester, along came some people from the Academy. Cammie gladly arranged for Otto to begin attending the school for Espers starting in the second semester, and decided to move to Hawthorne Valley as well to be near her daughter.

Physical Appearance: Otto has curly red hair with streaks of teal, which she typically ties up in a ponytail. She likes wearing band t-shirts and ripped skinny jeans with combat boots or sneakers. She has pale skin and clear blue eyes. Otto is also a little on the lanky side, but still slightly muscular. She stands at 5'7, and has thin, arched eyebrows that are usually accompanied by a friendly, confident smile. She does not wear makeup, and her red hair falls over her right eye sometimes, with her bangs being swept in that direction. Her ears have three piercings each - a silver and a black ring on the side, and a crystal on the earlobe.

Personality: Otto is an energetic, enthusiastic, and spirited girl who's pretty friendly and open to meeting new faces. However, she can get angry pretty quickly, and can be quite blunt and stubborn. She is quick to make judgements, and instantly dislikes people who seem egotistical and/or manipulative, or act even a little rude to her or her friends. She is not one to hide it when she dislikes people, either. She tends to hold grudges, so once you're in her bad books, you're probably not going to get out of them very easily. She's got reckless tendencies, not thinking too much before doing or saying things, and can be pretty sarcastic. She's also got rebellious tendencies, not being afraid to be outspoken when she disagrees with authority, and she finds it fun to break the rules once in a while. She's very driven and confident, and is quick to stand up for what she believes in, no matter who disagrees. If she loses an argument, she is likely to get sulky and sullen for a while, like when she must admit to being wrong, which she finds quite difficult. Otto is very protective of her friends, and sticks by their side no matter what. She can be helpful and compassionate, although her nosiness and brash way of doing things might get in the way sometimes.

Wisp: Otto met her wisp in her metalworking class. The thing had been hovering around as she worked on her project, and, curious, Otto poked at it. The wisp took that as a signal to bond. Otto decided her wisp was a dude, and took her time coming up with a cool name for him. She settled on Finnigan. Often, she calls him Finn for short. Finnigan is an excitable wisp, and tends to encourage Otto when she's about to do something that could be dangerous, and/or get her in trouble. He is fascinated by creating things, like Otto, and is more than happy to use his technopathy and help her combine electronics with mechanics to make more interesting stuff. However, Finn likes his alone time, so when Otto's not building or going on adventures, he usually just secludes himself in a corner of her mind. Otto can just slightly sense his emotions when he does that, but nothing more. If she calls for him, though, he will respond and come back out to talk. Sometimes, even when she's using her technopathy or electrokinesis, Finn still stays in that 'corner' and provides aid from there. Otto occasionally thinks about how it's odd that he secludes himself, even from her, and generally reappears only to have fun or when needed, but doesn't dwell on it or let it affect their friendship. After all, matter class wisps are typically just weird little guys anyway.

Wisp Class: Matter

Powers: Otto is a technopath. She has a knack for technology and stuff, knowing exactly how to fix problems and put everything together. She can also create electricity along her skin, which can either zap a problematic computer into working properly again or just doing her bidding (if she were more experienced with her powers), or shock people. The last one's a lot more fun. If she chose to, she could develop the electrokinetic side to her powers a lot more and really turn it into something formidable in battle. While using her wisp's knowledge of technology to easily maneuver her way around electronics does not use energy, using the electrokinesis is draining, and tends to make her tired, more lethargic, and she'd have to recharge (see what I did there? Sorry not sorry), maybe take an extra-long nap. Obviously, the more she uses it, the more energy it takes.


Weakness: She's rather impulsive, and does what she wants without thinking about it too much, so it's not unusual for her to do something stupid, like blurt out offensive opinions, pick all the wrong fights, and generally just run headlong into dangerous situations. She's rather tactless when speaking, especially to people she doesn't like anyway, and has a temper; it's not hard for her to make people want to whack her upside the head sometimes.


Talents: Otto enjoys dealing with mechanical stuff and is also gifted with electronic stuff, because of her powers. She is good at metalworking and the like, and can be trusted around bandsaws and welders (sorta). She is a pretty fast runner as well, though her stamina could use some work. She's taken up fencing before, at her old school in Chicago (and is gonna pick it up again at Lakeview).

Other: She is a human. *gasp* She likes pizza. Not just cheese though. Cheese pizza isn't as much fun. She is a Potterhead, and a fan of other book series like The Maze Runner trilogy and Gone. She also enjoys reading comic books and playing video games. She enjoys rocking out to the likes of Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, The Cab, and Kodaline.
