Alex taking on a Vampire Nest... Alone.
Full Name: Alex Summers Nickname/Alias: "The Chosen of Sagitarrius" applies, Al to her friends, Known as "The Pyro" as a sort of folk tale hunters hear about Age/Date Of Birth: 50 - Born 12/10/1965, ceased to age at the age of 28 in 1998 Race: Human, Chosen Occupation: Veteran Hunter, Single Mother Species Group: Human/Hunter/Chosen One Play-By: Summer Glau
-Immortality: They are able to live forever, but can be killed liked any other human.
-Supernatural Accuracy: The Chosen have incredibly accuracy and are able to hit a target even when moving fast.
-Supernatural Combat: The Chosen are very proficient fighters and are capable of using speed, strength, precision, technique, analysis, control, adaption, and all aspects of practical fighting effectively.
-Supernatural Endurance: Though they can be killed like other humans, it takes a bit more than normal to take them down completely.
-Elemental Manipulation: Each Chosen One can manipulate a certain element and have one special ability as well. In Alex's case, she has the ability to control, generate, and manipulate flames.
--> Unique Ability: Alex possesses the unique ability to ignite her weapons aflame without causing it any harm. Be this a chain, sword or gun - anything. When used on a projectile weapon of any kind - like her favored pistols - the projectiles will be on fire and sometimes she even sends just straight fire from them for a time. She can extend this fire into other objects as well, such as rocks and even vehicles - but the bigger the object, the harder it is to maintain for an extended period. The fire causes devastating burns and maintains high temperatures.
Special items that are bought from the store will go here.
Likes (At Least 3): ❤ Traveling ❤ Hunting ❤ Spending time with Paul and Paula
Dislikes (At Least 3): ✗ Creatures, she'll always be wary of them and one gaining her trust isn't easy, but she won't kill them without given a reason to ✗ Judgmental Hunters - just because she's different doesn't mean she isn't one of the best ✗ Boats - They make her uncomfortable.
Fears (At Least 2): ☬ Boats ☬ Her kids dying or becoming creatures
Goals (At Least 1): ★ Train Paul and Paula to survive the world they live in, knowing how to fend for themselves.
Alex has been at the hunting game for a long time, and as a result she's a bit more on the rough and tumble side of the spectrum. She can take her kicks and kick back twice as hard, bounce back from injuries and trauma quickly, and overall maintain a good imagery about herself of a big, tough hunter with super powers. She isn't beyond using her looks to her advantage in a case, and greatly enjoys any chance to put her powers to use in a fight. She's known for charging in head on without considering the finer details - much to the bane of her children, who are much more tactical than she will ever be. She's impatient, hating having to wait or stand still for very long. She suffers from terrible wanderlust, feeling the consistent need to travel and see new things; she can't help it.
Under her tough exterior though, Alex is a loving mother. She cares for her kids as much as she can and is as involved as she can be in their lives - and that's quite a bit considering they live out of a car and Alex's Harley Davidson. She's always supporting them in everything they do, reinforcing their confidence by reminding them that they can do anything in the world if they can put their minds to it. She doesn't expect them to stay Hunters - in fact, she often encourages them to chase a normal life, but know how to protect themselves and those they care about should the need arise.
She doesn't handle helping other people with their problems very well, she's really bad at giving pep talks and trying to cheer people up - her kids are pretty much used to it and become amused when she tries to give her awful pep talks. She genuinely wants to help people as much as she can, putting her stunted aging and her special abilities to good use as a Hunter and help people as much as she can.
Positives (At Least 3): ✧ Optimist ✧ Intellectual - Alex loves learning new things about lore, hunting, combat, or anything else for that matter so long as it holds her interest. ✧ Straight Forward
Negatives (At Least 3): ✦ Restless - She has the need to always be on the move or doing something, which drove her to travel so much with her kids ✦ Careless/Reckless ✦ Tactless - Doesn't handle helping people with their personal issues all that well.
Parents: John Hendrick and Lena Hendrick Siblings: Lawrence Hendrick Other Family: Paula and Paul Summers Important Others: Jon Summers History:
Alex was born as the oldest to a family of hunters whose legacy in the occupation dated as far back as the Victorian era. They were known for being relentless, skilled and having sharpened hunting methods to a razor sharp point. Alex was the oldest child out of a family of four, and from the moment she was able to walk, her parents knew there was something special about her. She learned how to use a knife before she could walk, how to use a pistol before she learned to ride a bike. It was astounding to them just how fast Alex began picking up on hunting skills and combat. Her first official hunt was at the age of twelve, and her first solo hunt was at fourteen - where she killed a werewolf on her own seemingly without blinking an eye.
It wasn't long after that she discovered her special abilities, able to generate fire and cloak her weapons in it. Her parents weren't very accepting of this ability, having a strong hunting mentality, they told her to leave and if she ever came back that they would have to do what they did with any other monster. Her younger brother, Lawrence, was a bit more accepting though. He even stood up on Alex's behalf, it ended up with the family splitting down the middle. She and her brother left, deciding they could hunt better on their own, together, without the judgement of their parents on Alex who showed that she was nothing less than an asset to the hunting life, especially with her abilities.
She and Lawrence crossed the US, Canada and Mexico - they even went down to Brazil at one point on a complicated Aztec Vampire case - a rare one, but they managed to kill the creature. Soon after that, it became rather obvious that Alex stopped aging somewhere in her late twenties - especially when Lawrence passed Alex up in physical age. Lawrence decided that he was going to take a more background style role in their lifestyles, focusing more on lore and helping Alex from the background instead - focusing heavily on trying to find out what she was and where her abilities came from.
Alex hunted alone for a time following up until she met Jon in 1999. Jon was another hunter, he was charming, skilled and he accepted Alex for who she was. She ended up entering a relationship with him and, a year later, they were engaged and Alex was pregnant - giving birth to her twins; oh so originally named Paul and Paula. She took time away from hunting to raise them, but when they reached the age where they could understand, she began teaching them the dangers of the supernatural. Jon died on a hunt when the kids reached the age of ten, leaving Alex to care for them. She took them out on the road, began teaching them the trade for the next five years, but during the night before Thanksgiving when she went out to go and retrieve food for their improvised celebrations, she found herself in Zeppelin City without her kids.
Alias: Revan How did you find us?: Old Site Experience: A while Other Characters: Revan, Roxanne, Zee, Zera, Aura, Scott, Sylvia, Shale, Elias, Cecil, Jane, Max, Mila, Maris, Nikki, Kenzie, Quinn, Veronica, Belphegor, Daphne, Jodie, Iblis, Amanda, Katie, Blake, Savanna, Imogen, Robert 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.
