    JAKE MACHIN

    18 | 23RD JANUARY | MALE | WEREWOLF | HOMOSEXUAL
    STUDENT | HIGH SCHOOL | 12TH GRADE
    Appearance
    Jake is a dark brown haired, turquoise blue eyed boy that stands at 5 foot 8 and weighs 10 stone. He is fairly well built but somewhat lanky. He wears his hair in a small quiff but sometimes has his fringe rest on his forehead, coming down to his eyebrows. He hates to dress smartly so he usually wears a round neck t-shirt, a zip-up jacket and slim fit jeans.

    Personality
    He is a fairly social yet sarcastic person that tends to hide his pain and anger which often results in him lashing out when he is alone; this isn't helped by the aggressive nature of his wolf inside him. The sarcasm is used to hide the fact that he is very depressed - not clinically; depressed that he has no family, money, home and also that he is gay. Growing up, he was surrounded by people that would put people in the hospital if they were gay and was taught that it was a "disease", so he kept that side to him a secret, from everyone.

    He likes to stay in a small group of friends and even prefers his own company, often reading, listening to or playing music. Once a person has earned his trust, he would care and protect them as though they were his family, though it takes a while for him to fully trust a person.

    Active Abilities
    Empathy: Jake has the ability to sense the emotion of others around him, even if they are trying to mask it with a different facial expression. He can do this to people and animals but can not manipulate their emotions, only interpret them. He also doesn't have complete control over it so he sometimes does it involuntarily.

    Wolf Shifting: Jake has the ability to fully shift into a four foot high wolf with dark brown fur and gleaming golden eyes. He likes to think he has full control of when he shifts but it can sometimes happen when he gets angry. Also, he cannot control it on a full moon and has to shift at moon-rise until dawn. He regains full memory of what he does when he shifts unless he turns when he is angry, then he has no recollection of anything that occurred other than that he had shifted.

    Passive Abilities
    Precognitive Dreams: Whilst asleep, he may see a vision of something that will or may happen in the future. He cannot purposefully see the future, he only has the chance of a vision whilst he is asleep.

    Enhanced Abilities:
    - Heightened Senses: Even in human form, Jake has senses that are ten times that of a normal human. This includes sight, smell, hearing, taste but not touch.

    - Speed: He can reach a maximum of 32 miles per hour but running at top speed will tire him after around one mile of running.

    - Strength: His strength is increased so he can lift a maximum of around two tonnes.

    - Jumping: Without the use of a surface to boost himself, he can jump up to four meters off the ground.

    - Night Vision: Jake can see clearly in the dark but not as clear as he would in daylight.

    Biography
    Jake never knew his parents; they were murdered when he was very young. Since then, he had moved from foster home to foster home, none of which ever worked out so he always returned to a care home. He had always had his empathetic powers and precognitive dreams which made people single him out for "knowing things". His werewolf abilities manifested at the age of twelve when he was staying with a foster family on a full moon, resulting in him destroying furniture in the room he was staying, and has shifted every full moon since. He had managed to keep it a secret for years, shifting in a woodland nearby, until he got enraged at someone from his care home whilst they were out one day, resulting in him mauling him but not severely. After this, he received a letter from Starlight Academy and used the last of his savings to travel there with the little belongings he had with him.

    Resources
    Coming from the care system with no inheritance to his name, Jake has very little money to his name. He doesn't even own his own mobile phone. His most prized possession is the guitar that he bought after saving up for years, as well as an old MP3 player that he uses to listen to music. Currently, he is living in the Misfits Mansion with his pack.
