    WARNING: CHILD ABUSE MENTIONED

    Name:
    James Logan
    Age: Sixteen
    Birthday: March First
    Gender: Male
    Species: Changeling
    Category: Students
    Class: High School
    Grade: Junior
    Employment: Museum Internship

    Commission by Iffand

    He stands at 6' tall, a slim and athletic build that he clearly trains daily, dark black hair that he wears loosely and gray-silver eyes, his back is covered in whip like scars that snake up to the base of his neck. His clothes are very casual but also very nice, shirts, jeans and light coats, with reds and grays being common colors for him.


    James is a unique individual, he's seen a lot for his young age, hardships that would have broken people older than him, yet he's kept going kept fighting. He has a strong will and is surprisingly stubborn and thick headed, he likes doing things on his own, figuring it all out, though he does have a limit to where he'll ask for his help. At his core he's a very kind person, he knows what it's like to have nothing and so likes to be helpful and friendly when he can, however he does have a bitter side, seeing the worse man has to offer has made him painfully aware of how terrible people can be, but he does give people the benefit of the doubt when it comes to things they've done in their pats, though this has its limits.

    Shadow is an odd being, he's very childlike and easily to anger, having no memory of who or what he is, he has strong sense of curiosity, unfortunately he's trapped in James mind and forced to see things from his perspective. While he has grown some and has developed a strange sibling like relationship with James he still has a desire to eventually gain his own body and live his own life.


    Active:
    •Fae Appearance:
    Has silver eyes and pointed ears he can make appear and vanish as he wants.

    •Tentacles: Able to spawn up to ten shadow tentacles that reach about twenty feet. He'll feel pain if their damaged and take a twenty-four hours to reform if destroyed, beyond that he can conjure them as needed and use them as if they were limbs.
    •Shadow Teleport: He's able to create a shadow portal that can travel half a mile at a time. Only able to create one portal at a time.
    •Strength Manipulation: He's able to instantly raise his physical strength to double of that of any individual stronger than him, he just needs to be looking at them in order to activate the power. This increased strength lasts thirty minutes and he's able to use it twice a day, though he cannot use it on the same person twice in the same day.
    Magical Repair: He's able to magically repair any broken item via touch, said item must 6' by 5' foot in size or under. The bigger the lobject the more time it will take, an object of u' by 5' would take a total of twenty four hours of focus to repair, however objects don't have to repaired in one sitting and he can repair over time if he wishes. He doesn't require all the pieces of the object to repair it as missing pieces will seem to "grow back" as he makes the repairs.
    •Attack Redirection: He's able to redirect an enemies attack. In order to do this he must focus on the attack, this will cause it be redirected either up, down, left or right, if he doesn't choose a direction it will be random. He can use it on as many people per day as needed, however he can only use it on any one person once a day.

    Passive:
    •Physically Enhanced:
    The shadow in his his body grants him enhanced strength, can lift two thousand pounds and enhanced agility, can jump twenty feet.
    •Healing: The shadow magic in him grants him a healing factor, a bullet wound would heal within a few hours.

    •True Sight: He's able to see a supernatural being no matter how they're hiding. This ability allows him to see those using invisibility, or other abilities meant to hide then from sight. If a super natural being is trying to hide from him via other means, like hiding behind a tree, he'll see a light outline of them indicating that they're there.

    •Danger Sense: He's able to sense when he's about to be in danger, said danger needs to be semi-imminent and it of course needs to be able to cause him harm, though not necessarily physical harm. The cause of the danger needs to be within ten feet and he'll automatically sense it. Upon picking up on the danger he'll be able to sense what direction the danger Is coming from though the sense on its own cannot detect the exact source of the danger, just the direction.

    •Enhanced Senses:
    -Smell: able to track things by smell
    -Sight: has night vision
    -Hearing: able to hear a whisper from up to 50 feet away.
    Limits:
    -Strong Smells: very strong smells can be painful and disorienting to him if he's not careful
    -Bright Lights: because of his night vision his eyes are more sensitive to light, he can still function in the sun and electric lights, but flashes and focused lights are very painful and can cause short term temporary blindness
    -Loud Sounds: because of his hearing he's more sensitive to sounds, loud and high pitch ones hurt his ears much more easily

    •Longevity: while not immortal, he'll still likely live longer than humans, he'll likely live to be around 150


    Weaknesses:
    •Light Magic:
    Light based magics can dispel all the above abilities. It can easily destroy the tentacles, make the portals vanish, temporarily sap his enhanced strength and temporarily shut off his healing factor. He'll feel pain if exposed to it and the stronger light magic can cause temporary paralysis.
    •Iron: he'll have the classic Fae weakness to iron. It burns his skin, and will disrupt in Fae based magics he ever learns.


    James resides at the school, living in a dorm on a school scholarship and the money he gets from a part-time job.


    WARNING: CHILD ABUSE MENTIONED
    •James was born a Fae, in an unknown section of Underhill. For unknown reasons he was soon abandoned in the human world, left in an alley for humans to find, unfortunately the the worst person imaginable did in fact find him.
    •James was taken in and raised a group of thieves that based itself in a large, a corrupt and crime filled city on the West Coast of the US. It wasn't a good life, him and the other child thieves were regularly abused by the group's leader, but they stayed because it was a chance to survive in the horrid city.
    •Despite the hardships James dreamt of better things, of a different life, away from the pain and suffering that was this city. He wanted a different life, for him and the others. So he'd start working toward that, skimming off stolen money in preparation for their attempt to leave.
    •Unfortunately the leader of the group caught wind of everything he was doing and attacked him, intending to kill him as an example. James killed the man in self defense and then fled the group. The whole thing drew enough attention from the media that the kids finally got some help, but not James, no he was gone like the wind.
    •James would spend some time wandering, uncertain of where he was going or why, he was directionless. The one night, seeking shelter from a storm, he broke into an old abandoned mansion and there he found a small metal box. The metal box was covered in ornate carvings looked potentially valuable.
    •So, he picked the box up, and from it sprung an entity, a living construct of shadow magic and it bonded to him. The incident was shocking to him to say the least, he'd shifted into some sort of shadow monster, and so he panicked and ran outside. His new abilities going off randomly he made a bit of a mess in the area, scared a few people, before finally passing out and being taken in.
    •Eventually news spread to Manta Carlos and scouts were sent to collect the young boy, bringing him to the island. He's been here for a few years now, growing, learning and experiencing the many things his new life has to offer.


    •Plays guitar as a hobby.
    •Keeps the cube that once held the Shadow in his dorm.
    •Thanks to his roommate he's developed a love of Star Trek.
