Full Name: Nikki Fiona Smiles Nickname/Alias: Various nicknames given by bullies, a handfull of aliases she has tossed together since she began hunting Age/Date Of Birth: 24, December 24th Race: Human Occupation: Hunter - though she targets both the Supernatural and humans who have done others wrong Species Group: Second Generation Deva Play-By: Ashley Greene
-Mutated Physiology The angel blood in Nikki's bloodline has mutated her DNA and physiology in odd ways. Not only does it grant her abilities, it affects her appearance. Nikki's skin is a sickly pale and her eyes are an unnatural gold and cat-like. It has also made her blood change color - instead of her blood turning red on exposure to oxygen, Nikki's blood turns a dark black color on exposure to oxygen instead.
The effects of her mutated physiology are as follows:
*Heightened Senses She see's better in the dark and her eyes are more sensitive to normal or bright light conditions, they effect her more than the average person and she normally has to wear sun glasses during the day as a result. In very low light conditions, her eyes will have a slight glow to them and will become slits like a cat or snake. When it comes to her sense of smell, she can use it to track people or animals and is comparable to a Dog in how sharp it is. Her senses of taste and hearing are not affected
*Increased Flexibility and Reaction times
*Pain Empowerment As a defense mechanism involving a heightened "Fight or Flight" response cause by her adrenal glands mutating to have a higher output alongside an unknown energy. Her body will enter an "overdrive" state when she is injured with massive surges of adrenaline and energy. In this state, she will be granted enhanced strength and speed for a time after. How long it lasts, how strong she is, and how fast she is varies with just how much pain she is put through. For example, a paper cut would have little to no effect on her physically - but if she were shot, she would be able to run much faster and shove a man bigger than her across a room. With this power comes a heightened pain tolerance, allowing her to continue functioning while injured, but when she "comes down" from her powered state she will be in CONSIDERABLY more pain than she was originally. When entering her stronger state of pain, her eyes will glow, how brightly depends on just how much pain she is in.
When on Angel Blood, her body reacts in a both unique and disturbing way - she will be put in a state of excruciating, constant pain for the duration of the blood in her system. This will then let her abilities surface in a much more heightened state than they ever would have normally.
*Heightened Immune System Diseases, Toxic substances, Poisons and other contaminants have little to no effect on Nikki and are quickly eradicated from her mutated immune system, it also destroys any cells that show abnormalities such as cancerous cells. Nikki could be surrounded by people sick with a deadly plague and be perfectly fine. She is also immune to infection by creatures such as Vampires and Werewolves. In theory, one could take a sample of her blood and use it to make vaccines for a large variety of diseases.

Nikki is a kind young woman, always doing her best not to hurt people, treating them with respect. She's always been a bit soft spoken and reserved, but not overly so. She does her best not to make enemies. he tires to comfort those in pain and does her best to make them laugh and feel better if they are that is, unless she knows for a fact they are among the population of people who hurt others for amusement or to get ahead in life while stepping on everyone else to get what they want, in which case she will leave them to their misery. She has no tolerance for bullies and will quickly and swiftly put them in their place, be it through her words or through her fists. It takes her a little bit to warm up to people, but once she does, she's practically a friend for life unless you do something very, very bad towards her. She has a lingering fear of being rejected by people over what she is. She's often more than a little secretive about her condition and what her occupation is.
When it comes to dealing with Supernatural and with cruel humans, Nikki is a much less cute and kind person. She becomes persistent, ruthless and relentless when the situation calls for it. She get's a heck of a lot darker when she begins taking a case or situation personally, and that normally happens when the case involves some kind of bullying or abuse is involved.
Negatives (At Least 3): ✦ Persistent ✦ Ruthless towards her enemies and other cruel beings, never giving them a chance to explain ✦ Lingers on events, holding grudges and having trouble letting things go
Parents: Sunny Smiles (Mother), Taylor Smiles (Father) Siblings: Gordon Smiles (Brother, Ghost) Other Family: Tonya Smiles (Grandma), Harris Smiles (Grandpa) Important Others: Jason Vega, Aimee O'Connor and a hand full of others (School bullies who pushed her much too far) History:
Nikki was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico one faithful Christmas Eve at 6PM. Her mother went through various complications during childbirth that resulted in her eventually dying. Her being the Deva in her family, she had no one to teach her about her abilities when she grew. Her father was less accepting of the abilities, being a devout Christian man, but her mothers had been beneficial to others and he accepted her, like she was an angel. That's why when Nikki was born, a pale child with unnatural yellow eyes who bled black, he was... less accepting. The color of her eyes and blood being put off as birth defects, Nikki was raised alone by her father who, over the years, began showing his distaste in his daughter more and more.
Her father would lock her in a closet in the basement and leave her there for hours, throw things at her when she disrespected him, he never physically hurt her, however. He would force her to read from the bible and pray every day, and if she refused she would be once more shoved into the closet. Her neighbors and family had suspicions on what was going on but no one ever took action against it, believing her father would never do such a thing to his child. Nikki was always put under the impression that she deserved the punishment she was given, and she believed it. She never protested against her father, unless he was particularly rough. She would read the bible, go to church, do what her father told her to and go through school. In school, Nikki was shunned by other people even more as time went by, mostly over her appearance. They would make fun of her strange eyes, and when the children learned of her heightened sense of smell they made her smell things that were very strong or smelled very bad to watch her react, laughing all the while. This carried through into her teenage years, and it just got worse and worse.
Nikki was afraid to make friends, she didn't know what to do with herself, she hated being at school and she hated being at home but she had no where else to go. She began questioning her father more at this age, as all teenagers do, and finally it escalated to a point where her father struck her with a plate, breaking it over her head. That's when she learned just what she can do. Stumbling away from her father that night in the kitchen, bleeding from her head, something changed in the young woman and when she opened her golden eyes again, they were glowing - bright and all the pent up anger from the years of mistreatment came out. She charged her father and shoved him, sending him flying through a window and onto the front lawn, waking up the neighborhood with his screams and the breaking glass. He grabbed a piece of glass and stabbed her and it just made her angrier and stronger. Grabbing him off of his feet, she lifted the man up and threw him to the ground again, yelling at him all the while. It took half the neighborhood to restrain her from her father and they might have been the only reason she didn't kill him that night. He screamed words at her like "Demon" and "Devil Child"... she just slowly broke down and cried.
The situation was analyzed by law enforcement and the house was checked over. Between the discovery of how her father treated her surfaced as well as what he was ranting and raving about with her, he was instead of being put in prison, put in a mental institute and labeled unstable - while Nikki was sent to live with her grandparents on the other side of town and scheduled to visit a councilor every week to help her. It never really did.
Bullying at school became worse for her once the situation with her father came up on the news. Her typical bullies would make life hell for her, poking fun at her over the situation. She tried to avoid them, tried to get past it, but it never worked. Finally things became too much for Nikki and she attempted to end her life by cutting her wrists, but when she did, it happened again. Her eyes glowed, her muscles tensed. She felt stronger. She tried to do the other but was stopped by her grandfather. Her grandparents had always been lovely people to her. Seeing this sight for them though... was different. Not simply because it was their granddaughter trying to kill herself - but because both her grandparents were retired hunters.
Nikki explained everything to them, and her grandparents left the room for a time. Her mother had displayed her powers to them before, so they were aware something was up. They offered then to assist Nikki. Teach her to use it. She agreed, on one condition: They put her in home school.
Needless to say, they agreed.
The following years were filled with rigorous training. Her grandfather taught her how to fight the supernatural while her grandmother taught her to understand it. She picked up on these skills quickly, and her grandfather taught her to use her pain and it's augmentations to her strength and speed to her advantage against stronger opponents. He taught her mixed martial arts, and her fighting style always revolves around her getting hit first. When she became twenty, she decided it was time she left to hunt on her own, having gone on a hand full with her grandfather who came out of retirement to show her the ropes. She left to be a solo gig, and for a while, all she went after was creatures.
That was, until on one of her cases she came across an abusive hunter husband. He'd get drunk, beat his wife and do horrible things to his daughter, she could smell him on her and the wife even admitted that she knew but did not know how to handle it. He worked with her on the case and then expected to go back to his wife and daughter afterwards. Nikki didn't let him. She struck him over the head with a metal baseball bat, and when he questioned what she was doing, her response was simple.
She bludgeoned him to death with the bat. It was sloppy work, but after destroying the evidence of the killing, Nikki left a letter in the wifes mailbox the day before leaving simply reading "You don't have to be afraid of him anymore." and then, just like that, left. Now with a purpose. She was saving people. Hunting things.
Alias: Revan How did you find us?: Old Site Experience: I forget Other Characters: Revan, Kenzie, Quinn, Zera, Robert, Daisy, Cecil, Jane, Elias, Max, Amanda, Katie, Amyl, Scott, Daphne, Zee, Roxanne RP Sample:
Revan let everything Lucy was saying hit her at once, and it felt like the feeling the Angel got when she was still powerful, when someone shot her with a shotgun. She felt terrible, like someone had punched her in the gut, or hit her with a baseball bat. She turned around and her hand went over her mouth, feeling like she was going to throw up. It was better that Lucy was dead than deserving this... No one deserved to be a ghost, the sad, sad existence.
Her throat tightened and tears began to well up, trying a hard as she could to keep from breaking down here on the floor. She turned to Lucy, seemingly three shades paler, her hair not nearly as vibrant as it seemed to be three years ago, her grey eyes dulled to a shade of black. "Lucy... its 2013..." Revan hadn't been keeping track but she had counted three New Years celebrations since Lucy's death. Her hands went to her face and then back to her sides, her nails digging in to her palms until blood leaked down her fingers. "Three years.. I've counted. Three years I've slept alone in the bed. Three years I've drowned my sorrows I alcohol... Three years with my heart ripped from my chest without you here, Heaven and Earth becoming a living hell to me, leaving me with what options?" Revan wasn't going to lie, she had tried her hand at writing stories like Lucy, but that was the best poetry she could do, even if it was free verse.
Tears were dripping down her cheeks again now, and with the flick of her wrist the TV blinked to life and flicked to the news, where the date would be shown. "Everything I told you... Everything you thought I was crazy over, everything you would joke about... About me being an Angel was not a lie." Revan looked up at her again and then to the floor. "I m-missed you so... s-so much." Revan's legs stopped supporting her then and the pink haired woman fell on the floor, her head tilted down and her face in her hands, sobbing. She knew she shouldn't, but she felt as she did on the day of Lucy's death and funeral. Like all the life had been sucked out of her seeing the person she loved at this fate. But there was a part of Revan that was revived with this, the part of her that she had thought was buried with Lucy... Selfish as it may be to her, Revan was so, so happy Lucy was back.
