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 being a number on a file with a tracking device on their wrist or in their bloodstream.

For a while, the children of fallen heroes started to work in the shadows as the new X-Men. Not all that long ago, the latest incarnation of the X-Men was brought down in flames by Division's efforts. Team members captured, Agents killed, Cosmic fire everywhere... It seems as though the days of the X-Men have come and gone once again. Or have they?

Notice: Human Division employees are still much needed, even if they're depowered mutants. We would also love to see more MHA, Morlock and Purifier affiliated characters.

DATABASE FILE #081654 MUTANT, X-MEN
WREN JUDITH BECK
TWENTY-FIVE | X-MEN | ELLEN PAGE
UNEMPLOYED | TIME MANIPULATION | MOMENTO
" what do you want me wide-eyed and demure? "
  • TIME STASIS
    [controlled, well, mostly]
    Wren is capable of slowing down time to rates that make it seem as if time has stopped. When using this ability, she is immune to her altering of time. Slowing down time will cause those within her range of power to move slowly and reduce their reaction time. She is able to limit her range to a particular person nearby and make them experience as if everything around them is moving slowly. Additionally, Wren can slow down time to the point where those within the range to perceive events so slowly that they don't register in one's mind. She is immune to the slowing of time that she causes, able to move normally through the time she's altering. Wren is also able to make those with physical contact to her immune to her ability, though trying to give immunity to too many people causes her a great amount of mental strength. While she is able to completely stop time, it's much easier for her to simply slow time down.

    TIME ACCELERATION
    [control is a work in progress]
    The opposite of her primary ability, Wren is also able to speed up the flow of time. She is able to accelerate the movement of time around her in order to enhance her reflexes and simulate super-speed. Due to her lack of experience using this ability, her mind often races too quickly once time has returned to normal. She finds it more mentally exhausting to accelerate time than to slow down time. Theoretically, Wren could speed up time around herself in order to time travel. Seeing that she doesn't know how to rewind time and can't control this ability as well, she refuses to experiment with this idea.

    TIME PORTALS
    [dysfunctional power augmentation]
    The result of unintentional contact with a source of high magical energy, Wren is able to transport herself to a different point within a timestream or even to pocket dimensions where time practically doesn't exist. She's immune to the aging effects of time when moving to different points in time. This is currently an ability that Wren has little control over; while she no longer ripped from one point in time to another during times of stress or emotions running high, she has little handle over landing where she wants successfully on the first try. Has yet to land anywhere remotely close to her intended destination, leading to Wren essentially locking herself out of her home and being lost somewhere in time.

    FAUX ENHANCED REFLEXES & SPEED
    [result of manipulating time around herself]
    By slowing down time around her, Wren can make it seem as if she's moving at superhuman speeds. She can also do this by accelerating time around her. While altering time can enhance her speed and reflexes relative to others, it's not a separate ability.
  • POWER MALFUNCTIONS
    [result of contact with an unknown mystical object]
    The same object that has led to the change in the advancement of her powers has led to Wren having concerns with controlling her powers. With her now lost somewhere within the expanse of time, she's lost sense of the normal passage of time, which has naturally thrown her ability to accelerate and decelerate time out of balance. Additionally, her ability to travel to different points in time is completely erratic due it being an extension of her powers that was never supposed to surface so early in her life.

    TIME LOCK
    [removing oneself from the stream of time]
    When put under too much mental stress and/or exhaustion, she causes time around herself to slam to a halt. Due to this stopping of time, Wren removes herself from the movement of time itself. Time around her moves at a normal rate and she's still able to perceive what goes on around her. When she locks herself out of the movement of time, most bodily functions, such as aging and growth, cease. To those witnessing her removal from time, it seems as if Wren has simply disappeared. This can last from mere seconds to days.

    LIMITED RANGE
    [unable to properly control powers outside of her limits]
    When it comes to manipulating time, Wren only has control over a few meter radius. Trying to push her powers outside of this leads to them having a tendency to malfunction. Going outside of her limits is a last resort that Wren's never had to use and doesn't intend on using it anytime soon. There's enough trouble without time going haywire.

    COULD DESTROY THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM
    [no big deal, right?]
    Space and time are relative. Messing with time can mess with space. Wren knows better than to play around too much with the way time works. Worrying about majorly screwing something up keeps her from experimenting further with her powers.

  • She's only six but she already knew too much for her own good. Her parents refused to turn on the television when she was in the room after the Brotherhood declared war against the Purifiers. They ignored that society was crumbling whether they acknowledged it or not.

    Her parents are mutants and they had hope that maybe their children could have good futures. Neither one of them had an obvious mutation: Judith could alter emotions and Christopher could move objects with his mind. It was simple enough to pass off as normal human beings. Despite trying to live life normally, they worried constantly that they would be discovered. Neither parent wanted their children to experience the judgment that came with the label of mutant.

    Wren didn't understand what a war was or why there was any need for fighting in the first place. She just knew that her parents weren't acting right all of a sudden and none of it made much sense. It was best to act as if nothing was wrong and take care of her little brother like her mother asked. She's not much of one to disrupt the peace.

    ------

    It was a mutual decision by both parents to have their children homeschooled. Her mother stayed home and took care of the children while her father went off to work. Wren's only ten when her powers start to surface. At first, it's nothing noticeable. When minutes felt like hours within the Beck household, it wasn't just a trick of the mind. It wasn't until she accidentally froze time throughout the entire house for a couple hours that suspicions rose.

    Being able to slow down time was beyond anything that her parents could do. The two had always assumed that any mutant child they had possibly couldn't turn out to be too powerful because surely it wasn't in their genes. But the two did the best they could in order to teach their daughter some sort of control over her abilities. Wren knew that her parents rarely ever used their powers, so she did the same. It was for a span of a couple years that her control of her powers was to suppress them.

    When her little brother started showing signs of being a mutant as well, it encouraged her to work more with what she had. The two latest additions to the Beck family are too young to know what was going on since they were barely a year old. She knew that the humans and mutants were pitted against each other in an all-out war at this point. It wasn't safe to be open about being a mutant. Wren just kept a watchful out for her little brother. She made sure that he knew that exposing even one of family as a mutant would bring suspicion onto them all. Even if her control wasn't perfect and sometimes she had no right to get irritated with his lack of it, it was for the best of the family.

    ------

    Wren learned as she got older about everything that her parents didn't want her to be exposed to. The stigma against mutants was higher than ever. The Mutant Registration Law goes into effect when you're barely a teenager. It the law was something she had only heard of existing in foreign countries. She didn't think it would ever happen in her own backyard. She had grown comfortable in her life of hardly ever using her powers. Her parents didn't register any of the family as mutants. Wren knew that going against the law wasn't right, yet she felt at ease not having to expose herself. She listened to her parents and knew that if it was something that they wanted, it had to be for the good of the family.

    The law didn't stop her from working more and more with her powers as they developed with time. With seven children, the Beck family had five of them that were mutants. Wren was accustomed to dealing with others trying to get a handle on their abilities and crowded rooms. As the divide between the rich and the poor grew, her family ended up on the bottom of the food chain. So when she finished with her school work, it was left up to her to watch over her six siblings.

    It was M-Day that brought an end to most of her family's trouble. With the events that unfolded, only Wren and the eldest of her younger brothers retained their mutant powers. All of a sudden, the rest of their family had been shoved into the normal life that their parents had always wanted for them. While it was a weight off from her parents' shoulders, Wren wasn't sure of what to do. With no real clue of what to do, she simply carried on as she had before. The drastic decrease int he number of mutants was causing the war to lighten up. Certainly the end of a war meant that things would be better. The stress only grew as it felt as if her family life was falling apart due to M-Day.

    At seventeen her powers had developed to the point where she was capable of actually stopping time. It was with this development and the stress of attempting to control it that she inadvertently removed herself from the natural flow of time. After hours of trying to get control of herself, she had to explain just what had happened to her parents even if she didn't exactly understand it herself. Wren didn't want to face the fact that she needed to gain better control over her powers, but she had to after leading her parents to think that she had just disappeared for no reason at all.

    ------

    She attended college and still tried to live as normal of a life as possible. Wren kept an eye on her younger siblings in between classes in some attempt to continue to help her parents out. Even though the war had ended, things were still in a state of array. Nothing was going back to how she remembered them to be as a child and she begrudgingly accepted the fact.

    It was with the mysterious broadcast one night that she decided that she had enough with staying in the dark about everything. In the following days when the rallies sparked up in Chicago, Wren found herself in attendance. It didn't matter that they hadn't been violent. The MCEA was the solution to anything that went against the registration of mutants. It hadn't been in her best interest to confront one of the officers, but it wasn't something that had crossed her mind at the time. When questioned about her status as a mutant she simply shrugged and made verbal remarks shaming the organization. It was enough to land her in the custody of the MCEA. They don't hold her back for too long. Wren caused time to pass far too quickly on the handcuffs they'd used on her, making them nothing more than brittle, useless things she broke with a swift blow against the side of a vehicle. That was enough to make her say goodbye to being the one that stood on the sidelines and took every blow that the world threw at her.

    ------

    Her actions against the MCEA at the rally was enough to catch the attention of the newly formed team of X-Men. She remembers that there were only a few of them at the time that she was recruited to be a part of the team. Vigilante justice isn't what she's good at though. Her moment with the MCEA was just that -- a moment. Just because she wasn't going to take anymore from the government or any law didn't mean that she was willing to fight. Even now she wants to tell them that they were wrong about her. She's the one stopping everyone in the middle of a fight because a part of her wants to see if there's any way to solve the problem peacefully. She's used to peace and being able to use words to get the point across; it was what she did with her siblings for years.

    But she knows that they need someone that can communicate with wanting to go on the offensive. Wren uses her powers but wants the fighting to just stop. She just tries to go into everything with her head on her shoulders and to not stoop to the level that the Division sits upon.

    ------

    She takes her position as one of the X-Men seriously and knows the risks she's taking by being a vigilante. The thought of dying while out in the field doesn't scare her like it should, possibly because she'd rather die than stand by and do nothing. But she's to being a peacemaker and the weight of the gun in her hands feels wrong in a way she can't exactly put her finger on. The sound of the gunfire is the signal to cease the conversation with the Karaboudjan's captain and she knows that there's definitely no turning back now. With an order from Knockout, she rushes inside of the ship to her designated place in the maze of rooms and hallways where the crew maintained the ship's operation. Wren rushes into a covered position to cover the halls leading down the lower levels where the refugees were waiting. It's her job to do whatever it takes to make sure that none of the damn agents make it down there.

    The presence of the little girl catches her off guard and it's impossible for Wren to ignore her being there. In a hushed voice, she encourages the girl to come closer to her so maybe she can be sure to protect whoever she can. Trying to comfort the girl is a distraction from the sound of gunfire and bullets impacting against the metal exterior of the ship. As she approaches without a word, the girl drops the toy she had once been clinging to and lands at her feet. Wren absentmindedly reaches for it in order to give it back before she tells the girl to hide, but suddenly she's frozen in place, disoriented by the feeling of something being there with them. Both the toy and the gun slip from her grip, and she's not sure what's wrong but knows that her grasp on reality is slipping. In the end, Wren doesn't know if she actually tells the girl to hide or if it's all in her head.

    There's indescribable pain rushing through her head and she knows that her consciousness is slipping away. Wren can't think about anything but her pain and disorientation, and she's willing to accept the urge to let herself to just let go of the world around her. She can only imagine that this is her death, the final stand she'll make against the Division and MCEA.

    And then there's nothing. There's a feeling of weightlessness that she's accepts as comfort as the pain eases. Despite the sense of nothingness, Wren now knows that this isn't death taking her. Instead, the acute awareness that the world that she was unwillingly dragged from is still out there and that she still exists somehow prevents her from accepting nothing as her ending.

ACCEPTED!
good job, lex! it's nice to see a member of the x-men attempting to use logic. i can so see her as someone to put them in "time-outs" (see what i did there) when there were interpersonal conflicts early on. they don't fight as much as they do intervene, and that might be right up her alley. always trying to find a different option or route.

WELCOME BACK!

Sadly I (Nerys) don't know what the old app looked like as I wasn't staff when that one was reviewed. What I do remember though is that I really wanted to thread with you the first round and I was so bloody overwhelmed with all of the excitement of writing that I stretched myself way too thin to have time for everyone. Clearly this was a mistake, because Wren is amazing. I cannot wait to get into it with you, not just with your fellow X-Woman, but with any of my amazing characters. I'm sure you'll have a line that wraps three times around your plotter if your game is even half as good as your character concept. welcome back and fucking-A am I happy to see vintage GotA people on here!
