WELCOME to Grandchildren of the Atom! We are a literate Next-Gen X-Men AU roleplay site set in Post WWIII Chicago, where it's currently March of 2039. The mutant population is slowly rising after M-Day, and the city isn't sure how to handle it.
Please remember to fill out your member profile and make your plot pages.
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.
We are currently accepting Site-Canons and Originals

I, Achilles, do solemnly affirm that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
Achilles has the ability to manipulate sub-atomic particles with his thoughts. He also has united states military special forces training, security officer training, and law enforcement officer training.
Achilles has some bad joints from injuries he gained due to his service before he learned how to use his powers to manipulate the cells in his own body. They often give him pain when he acts, and can sometimes even be debilitating in heavy pressure changes like snow or rain storms.
In addition to his infirmities, Achilles' power to manipulation sub-atomic particles is limited to a ten (10) foot, that is three point zero five (3.048) meter bubble around him. He also needs his hands free to make highly complicated changes to the materials as kind of like a mental assistance similar to how many force users in the fictional Star Wars think they needs their hands to use their powers.
Achilles is very arrogant and narcissist. He is always right, and always the right man for the job, unless he says otherwise. Anyone who's opinions or ideas differ from his own must come with very strong evidence if they plan on dissuading him or changing his mind.
Achilles cannot fathom how someone could support the MRA due to it's flagrant unconstitutional status. Anyone that is in favor of the MRA must be either evil, unlearned, or insane. Therefore, anyone who is in favor of it, must either be dealt with, or ignored. There is no middle ground, and Achilles is 100% dedicated to his mission as though it was given to him by God himself.
Achilles has no more or less defense, immunity, or protection from or against magic than any normal, non-magical being.
Achilles was born with the X-Gene as every other mutants was. Unlike normal however, Achilles' mutant powers did not manifest at puberty. Instead he went through the majority of his teenage and a small portion of his adult life before his powers became manifest.
