    “This next throwback jam is for all of my mutie brothers and sisters who are truly ‘Staying Alive’...”
  • SPRING 2038!

    Welcome to the year 2038, where the heroes of yesterday are dead and gone. Division and the Mutant Control Enforcement Agency (MCEA) saw to that. This dystopia we live in is the result of one anti-mutant hate crime that sparked the third world war. The law now requires mutants to register, to spend the rest of their lives on file being and being tracked. New York City is a shell of its former self but still remains a beacon despite all that has happened there. Despite this, a mass exodus brought people to the new country capital; Chicago. Which is why so much money and effort has gone into attempting to restore it to its former glory. Chicago isn’t the only thing rising from the ashes of a world that no longer exists. The children of former X-Men have come together to bring back the much needed hope that only they could bring. The road is long and will not be easy for anyone, but something has to be done before it’s too late.

    Unless on they appear on the canon list, mutants working for Division are banned until the further notice. IE until the number of humans in this category out number the mutants. We would also love to see more MHA and Morlock affiliated characters.

MAKENA SYBELE OKONKWO
33 | ZEPHYR | AEROKINESIS, HYDROKINESIS
Makena is the visiting Wakanda Princess and also one half of the diplomatic representatives currently in America. Her parents, King T’Challa and Queen Ororo of Wakanda, are often better recognized by their aliases of The Black Panther and Storm. Unknown to most of the world, Makena is one of the five founding members of the newest incarnation of the X-Men (before the scatter protocols were activated).

She has spent a majority of her life in Wakanda. One can imagine how she misses her homeland, though she is putting a lot of effort into her actions and involvement in American society. Up until the Division raid on Firehouse 52, Zephyr had been enjoying the diplomatic opportunity of being unregistered. Now, her recent registration is more of a formality and is essentially just of file of information without any of the additional tech involved with most mutants registering. She is careful not to flaunt other aspects of her diplomatic immunity, though she does well to keep a composed public and diplomatic appearance. Makena has thrown herself into her work by participating in a few community events that are to engage mutants and mutant supporters, considering the currently unknown status of the Mutant-Human Alliance.

Despite the X-Men’s recent “disbanding”, Makena still feels a lot of pain and loneliness as a result. Particularly due to her not being present at the time of the event. She still holds onto the hope that the team will find its way back together. This time, they’d be stronger than anyone would suspect. Makena had always been one of the more hopeful members of the group, using it to support her X-Men family with encouraging words, comforting actions, and thought out choices.

Due to her diplomatic significance, Makena has not the opportunity to make lots of FRIENDS. She would gladly uphold a conversation with anyone willing to engage her. Though she wishes she could spend more time with the people, mutant and other, she crosses paths with on her duties, the princess knows that at most she may have acquaintances. However, individuals with certain clearance or diplomatic ties may be able to engage her for longer periods of time and present a chance for her to make a friend or two.

Makena currently is not on the market of a LOVER due to her status. She doesn’t believe she needs a man, particularly if she wants to be the second female Black Panther in history. Should someone of interest cross her path though, she won’t object to something being pursued.

Makena wouldn’t open acknowledge the existence of ENEMIES, but her teammates know she holds the majority of Division’s actions in a disdainful perspective. Especially since the events of the Firehouse raid and resulting capture of her allies. Other than that, those who would oppress mutants are likely to gain her disfavor. Though she wants better diplomatic relations with the country of Atlantis, she has an unconscious vigilance when meeting with them. Particularly after learning Wakanda’s history with the submerged country.

Makena cares about the X-Men dearly, even viewing them as an extension of her own FAMILY. Her twin is also an important person in her life, as so much of the upbringing has been spent with him experience the same or similar events. Someone should totally take him now

THE ROYAL HIGHNESS'
Whooo boy do these two have a lot in common. They both hail from royal families, both have twin brothers, both manipulate water. As such, Erin would see Makena as both a threat to her superiority and as a potential ally to her kingdom.

Here's my thought with these two: While Erin doesn't care for land-dwellers, she would put aside her personal preferences for the sake of Atlantis' assets. Perhaps King Namor could instruct her to get in with the Wakandans, to make amends for the actions of her ancestors. From a personal standpoint, Makena would be too... good for Erin to befriend, being the manipulative, power-hungry, and back-stabbing mermaid she is. Still, Erin would put on a flawless, jovial Princess act that she's so very good at. Erin may even be convinced to help the X-Men in their future endeavors, should they get their ish together and prove useful allies. So, if we go this route, perhaps they could meet in some kind of diplomatic setting? This is all to say that I'd imagine there would be a great deal of underlying tension, and these two would walk an extremely fine line. Maybe if one of them were to snap one day, they could see who's the better water bender :-D


THE COMRADES
Milo Pym is my size-changing metahuman who is currently on an adventure (aka, stuck) in the quantum-realm following the attack on the Firehouse. He won't be back from Tiny Land for awhile, but when he does return I think Makena could be a good influence on him. He will definitely be quite disoriented and stoic upon return, and in need of a friend. He was never a notable presence on the team before, but when he gets back Milo will finally come out of his shell (cicada puns never get old), and actually make friends then. So while this is all vague and theoretical, I'm just throwing it out there!


THE REST
I also play Henley Chapman, a speedster on C.P.D.'s investigative unit, and Felix Merek, an immortal bastard working for Division. Let me know if you have any thoughts for plots!

ERIN and MAKEN: I do like the idea of these two hydrokinetics meeting and wearing fake smiles to each other. I personally don't think Makena would drop any hints about the X-Men, especially with all that's going on right now post-Camelot. The situation would need to be just right for these two to cross paths... maybe there's a diplomatic event that they're both attending or they come across each other in the world- maybe by a body of water on the outskirts of town or something?

MILO and MAKENA: YES! I love the idea of these team mates getting to know each other more. Although Makena wouldn't have overlooked Milo's presence on the team, her duties as the princess/diplomat have reduced the amount of time she spent at the Firehouse. Definitely hmu when Milo returns to the Macroverse!

FELIX and MAKENA: Depending on what Felix does with Division, he might have been the one to escort her to a Division office to get registered. Probably due to her high profile status would cause Division to send an escort or two. Thoughts?
