    “Meteorologists are warning there's a record breaking heatwave coming this way...”
  • 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.

    DIVISION: 11

    HUMANS: 14

    OFF-GRID: 23


    GHOSTS: 3


    WOMEN: 33

    MEN: 34

    admin notes!

    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.

Our canon list is void of face claims to offer you, the players more creative control over your characters. This being said we would still greatly appreciate seeing some variety. You will occasionally find a canon with an asterisk and an italicized notation attached, and there are two possible reasons for this. Either the Admin feel a certain character requires a certain face claim for optimal game play & graphics (like with the offgrid canon "Rumlow") or that character has a canon sibling whose player has requested a face. If the requesting player gives up their canon, the request goes too.

Even with our canon list we still welcome and encourage original characters in all groups (unless there is a member group ban in place). Every canon comes with some sort of character specific details such as surname, powers (if applicable), family relations, age range and gender but are otherwise open to interpretation. Reservations last for three days, we expect to at least see a work in progress application (or a completely finished one) by the time day four rolls around.

No reservation challenges. If the character you're looking to pick up is already reserved wait your turn. It's been our experience that not all reserved canons get made, so you may still have a shot. If not there are still plenty of other canons to choose from. A two day reserve extension may be granted if an Administrator is approached with a valid reason, and the work-in-progress application is posted in our in-complete section.

➣ if you have any questions, just ask us here.

--- --- OKONKWO
Volatile | 33 | OPEN
Okonkwo is the male half of the fraternal twins born to the X-Man Storm and the Avenger known as the Black Panther. Due to the war he was raised primarily in Wakanda, which is something he greatly enjoyed as it had always been his presence. His X-Factor manifested in his early teens as fire and earth manipulation, the other half of his sister’s mutation. Even before their mutations manifested they had and still have an enhanced resistance to magic when they are together or at least when they are near each other. Though they often butt heads regarding methodology, in many ways Volatile does take after his mother in personality.As the future King of Wakanda he has diplomatic immunity and did not technically have to register, however he did voluntarily go in for an interview at Division’s HQ when he began attending university here in Chicago. He is registered - but only as a mutant on file with a generalized notation of his mutation. He did this in hopes to keep relations between the USA and Wakanda on friendly terms. “Don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease.”
------ OKONKWO
Zephyr is the daughter of Storm and the Black Panther and the twin sister of the registered mutant Volatile. The Princess of Wakanda is not a weather witch like her mother however she is able to manipulate the elements of water and air. When she is in proximity to her twin brother, they have an enhanced resistance to magic and magic based attacks. Having diplomatic immunity means she technically does not have to register. This being said she avoids abusing or flaunting her status as a diplomatic unregistered as she feels it would be in poor taste given the state of mutant-human relations in America. She was raised primarily in Wakanda with her brother and misses it dearly, but she strongly believes in what the X-Men stand for and that this sort of element of hope is truly needed in order for the world to strive for better. She believed it so much that Zephyr became one of the first five members of the New X-Men; and mourns the group's absence now that her friends have been scattered by Division. "What scares me isn't how short life is, no, it's the pain, all the pain. I don't understand why there has to be any pain."
X-23 | 40 | Temur
Before M-Day, the mutant known as X-23 was created in hopes to replicate the original weapon x program. Her bones weren't bonded with adamantium, but she was fitted with retractable twin claws in her hands and feet that were. She was a member of the New X-Men and did not suffer the curse of losing her mutation. However, her high profile status as a known mutant made avoiding registration impossible. She now lives a within the confines of the law and has since opened up a halfway house. Her new cause helps usher newly registered mutants, who have been released from government custody, into societal reintegration.*marvel canon "No, I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3."
---- -- THURMAN
Thurman is the son of the mutant Neena Thurman aka Domino. He inherited his mother's Probability Manipulation, including the enhanced agility and enhanced reflexes. He works in private security and is highly sought after in his career field. This is the entire reason he is registered, it would have been hard to keep such a status if he had to be on the run over something so stupid. “Are you ashamed of being seen in an American Classic?”
---- -- KOSLOV
Koslov was born a few months after the Chernobyl disaster, which activated in utero due to his mother's proximity to the catastrophe. He was born with the power of Radiation Absorption which is one of the reasons he looks a lot closer to 17 than he does 49. It should be mentioned that he does not emit radiation and therefor there have never been any instances of him giving anyone cancer. Geiger gets paid vast ridiculous of money by governments all over the world to reside in places made uninhabitable due to radiation. He lives there for a while and when he's through it's like there had never been any radiation there in the first place. "Kids these days..." note: we will wave the 5 year rule for this character
The Chicago native never really gave second thought to the fact mutants existed, until she found out she was one and her world fell apart. Finding out you're a mutant while going through a mandatory x-gene test while trying out for the Olympic swim team and then having your personal business broadcast for the world would be painful for anyone. It took some experimenting and research to figure out that she had the ability of Adrenal Vampirism/Absorption. Eslava had always been on the track team, swim team, cheerleading and was usually voted MVP. All these years she thought it was her, but it was her ability which let her access extra stamina and adrenaline by draining others. She has since learnt how to intentionally direct it at a specific individual(s). The X-Men recruited her after she was suspended from the Chicago PD for using her ability on a suspect and put him in the hospital. She is not just an adrenaline junkie, she’s an addict which makes her a danger to herself and those around her and this drove a wedge between her and her teammates. Her not showing up at the docks that fateful night was the final nail in that coffin, at least for the time being. For now she’s an affiliate and informant for them while back at her day job full time. “Don't do anything I wouldn't do. That doesn't narrow it down. That's like, mini-golf and sushi.”
The only child of Warren Worthington III and Elizabeth Braddock was not born with the X-Gene, getting tested on the regular throughout most of her life. She was however a mutant rights supporter as well as chairman and principal shareholder of Worthington Industries. She still is, which is why she's registered now. After spending the first 29 years of her life a human, Worthington was abducted from her home and re-appeared a month later just as mysteriously as she disappeared. Only now she is a mutant with no recollection as to how that happened. More info here “No, not without incident.”
--- --- BLACK
OPEN | 30 - 40 | OPEN
Detective Black is fifth generation Chicago PD, however unlike the previous Detectives Black, he is a mutant. His power is that of Retrocognition and it is not the easiest gift to live with, nor is it always the most helpful. While he does use it in his career, he can't exactly get warrants or make arrests solely on his visions. He still has to find physical evidence to back these things up. He knows how hard it can be to be a registered mutant in the work force, he's been met with his share of bigotry and bullying. Ultimately, Black opted to become a Cold Case detective because it is where he can do the most good while being surrounded by the least amount of work-place intolerance. "I feel like I'm Han Solo, and you're Chewie, and she's Ben Kenobi, and we're in that fucked-up bar."
. . . | 37 | ADOPTABLE
After San Francisco fell and his father, the mutant known as Avalanche, disappeared into the world to fight for mutantkind Petros and his mother moved around a lot. They didn't have much and eventually he had to drop out of school just to help put food on the table. Now a days he can be found working as a bouncer at a place called "The Double Deuce". Which is the perfect job for a hothead like Petros, especially since his x-factor has blessed his mutant with unbreakable bones. However he does not have a rapid regenerative healing factor, which means he should be a little more careful than he actually is. despite being a drop-out he has a secret fondness for things like classic literature. most recently, Petros has developed a secondary mutation of Inanimation inducement.“There's a sign hangin' over the urinal that says, don't eat the big white mint.
The regular testing schedule turned this popular university student's life upside down when she came up positive for the mutant gene. She had no idea she was a mutant before then - and she still hasn't figured out her power, narcoleptic dust and dream manipulation. Even without knowing her powers, she's noticed a lot of old friends looking at her differently. A lot of strange people have started to give her lingering looks she doesn't like, too. She's not sure if she wants to learn more about it or get rid of it entirely. If that's even possible. “There are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl's complexion.”
Born to Remy LeBeau and the mutant Rogue during a period of her depowered state, this little lady was quick to land on the radar for registration; She has dual French/American citizenship and has recently returned to the states in the hopes of learning more about her late mother. She has the power of Kinetic Charging but she can only harness this ability through Organic Absorption via skin to skin touch. “Putain de merde”
--- --- SONTAG
OPEN | 27-32 | OPEN
It's not been easy going for Sontag since he was registered with psychometry. His pointed ears and all-black eyes were a giveaway, and have never let him blend in. That hasn't stopped him from going through medical school, determined to live out his childhood dream of becoming a doctor despite the people insisting he shouldn't. Now he works at Taggart General, and has been working on setting up free clinics around the city. Chicago's city government has been stymieing him at every turn. Still, Sontag didn't get where he is today by giving up easily. “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
BRUTE | 20 | DEX
Having a registered mutant mother he really had no choice but to go through the process as a pre-teen. Rasputin’s power of Personal Density Control manifested upon being tested for Registration by making his skin impenetrable. Brute was registered up until last year when accidentally making himself momentarily intangible. This made his tracker bracelet fall off freeing him from the confines of the registration act. Once tracker free Kitty sent her son to live with his older sister and the X-men so he wouldn't end up getting re-tagged or spending months in prison over such a silly accident. Ironically, it's his sister that's been captured by Division now. He's the one that's still free. “Time doesn't erase things, people erase things.”
--- --- BLAIRE
OPEN | 25-28 | OPEN
As the only child of Alison Blaire, aka the mutant pop star Dazzler, she's grown up with a lot of public attention. She even considered changing her name to hide from the whispering, but he decided to keep it in the end. That surname and her empathic voice are the only thing she has to remember her mother - and she doesn't think the rest of the world should forget what it did to her either. She's been an outspoken member of the Mutant-Human Alliance for years in California, determined to take up the cause of integration and a peaceful phasing out of registration. She's recently relocated from the West Coast at the behest of the X-Men, though she's still not entirely sold on their more violent approach to things. "You have not really defeated the enemy if you adopt their methods."

--- --- CORTEZ
MIDAS | 28 - 38 | OPEN
Cortez keeps her head down and does her best to stay out of trouble, but this wasn’t always the case. Upon the manifestation of her ability to turn any metal into gold, her family used her golden touch to pay for coyotes to bring their family and friends to America. After several years of success, tragedy in the form of greedy cartel members, struck. Long probably fairly traumatic story short, Cortez isn’t particularly inclined to stick her neck out. She’s worked hard to drop off of everyone’s radar - going so far as to have plastic surgery to drastically alter her appearance. She now only makes enough gold to pawn for cash when she really needs it. “Not all treasure is silver and gold.”
David Summers is the son of Jean and Scott Summers. After his parents were slaughtered, he was raised by Wolverine until Division found out their location and subsequently murdered David's mentor. Having been present when the idea to resurrect the X-Men arose he jumped on the chance to follow in his parents footsteps. Granted, having been heavily influenced by Wolverine readjusting to being part of a group was a difficult transition. David largely uses his Optic Blasts and Telekinesis in a defensive manner, as protecting others by any means is a deeply ingrained part of him. He escaped during Division's attack on the firehouse, but he's been abruptly left without his team or the base going forward.. "Hello, I'm nice, he's nice, we're both fucking lunatics. Can I come in, please?"
Vaughn was a kid whose head was always up in the clouds, a kid who always wanted to be a part of something bigger than himself. As a guy whose favorite part of any movie is the uplifting motivational speech, he is always able to conjure something to say. Despite having a swift tongue and his head in the clouds he has always been able to assess and understand the gravity of any given situation. It's almost ironic that he has the power of Gravity Manipulation. Vaughn was watching when the x-men's "You are not alone" message was broadcast and went in search of them to join their ranks. Now he's on the run, alone in the city with Division hot on his heels. “I'll turn your world upside down.”
--- --- WENHEM
EXILE | 18-24 | OPEN
After sending a few Division members to the moon with use of her specialized transportation power of banishment, Wehnem went on the run. She knows Division is looking for her and really doesn't want to be caught since she is not the first Wehnem to cause problems for Division. Her elder brother, having been sent to prison for failure to register, had reached out to her via his power and told her what was really happening on Ryker's Island shortly before he died in prison. "Stranger things have happened."
Until the day her mother barged into her dorm room to deliver bad news and reveal the truth about their family, Ms Maximoff had been blissfully unaware of her family’s connections to the superhero organizations like the Avengers or the X-Men. She hadn’t even so much as suspected that her mother was Hawkeye or her father and uncle had been Wiccan and Speed. It was during the heated confrontation that between mother and daughter that followed the revelation, when Maximoff’s mutant ability of Linguistic Magic went from 0 to 60 in the span of two words: “Drop Dead.” Ms. Maximoff spent the next several years as far off the grid as she could get, doing her best to aid others before Hudson and Stark decided it was time to bring her into the fold. The fall of the Firehouse has propelled her back into her own life, but it may not be so easy to slip away from the world after everything that's happened. “This dress exacerbates the genetic betrayal that is my legacy.”
RADIAN | 38-48 |OPEN
Christian Cord used to be an X-Man, back before the world turned to shit. He used to be in The Brotherhood too. After the depowering of 98% of the mutant population, Cord lost his powers. So he did what any man desperate enough would do, he sold his soul to the devil. Working as a double agent for both Division and The Brotherhood, he schemed and slimed his way into using the Hood's power broker to reacquire his gift of Ultraviolet Light Generation. Christian's backstabbing has left him an enemy of the Brotherhood and although he still works on the sly for Division (because they helped him obtain financial comforts), he has remained off the grid and out of their capture because of the leverage that he possesses. MORE ON THIS MUTANT HERE *marvel canon ''I'm not threatening you mate. It's beyond fucking words. I watched over you when you were asleep and I looked at your fucking neck and I was that far away from slicing it.''
--- --- RUMLOW
OPEN | 23-32 | OPEN
Born out of wedlock to the assassin known as Crossbones, Rumlow spent most of his life with the Morlocks. His father killed Captain America and the Punisher, Frank Castle, killed his father. He felt powerless against the weight of that legacy until his x-gene manifested as paralysis inducement. Now he's sure he can take on the world, working as muscle-for-hire for those who don't mind off-grid mutants on their payroll. It's not enough, though. Nothing ever seems to be enough. He wants to make a name for himself that overshadows his father's, and he doesn't give a damn about the difference between fame and infamy. “... you've got some red on you.”

Dr. Renfroe may be the daughter of the Division's Director, but she had to earn her spot in the genetic research department. The only way Renfroe would give up her coveted position at the company would be when she was dead and buried. There are words to describe people like this geneticist and none of them are very nice. She takes after her mother in many, many ways. Especially when it comes to the negative view on mutantkind. She dreams to one day she imagines she'll succeed her mother and continue on the work. Though she is currently unaware, she is in fact the daughter of Gen. Veers. But it seems that all bad work and too much play has put this woman into the sightlines of the Brotherhood. She is a human no longer and now possesses one less arm and a mutation that has yet to be defined as anything except self-inducting pain This mutation works on touch, which means Dr. Renfroe can never touch another living thing without inflicting sharp, excruciating agony upon herself. Naturally his mutation can develop into something more useful. "She tore me into twenty pieces and stitched me back together with my nerves. I wonder what she’ll do to you?.”
Boom Boom’s daughter has lead a strange and adventure filled life. She is a colorful and energetic individual who genuinely likes and trusts people which occasionally makes her come off a little naive. Smith saw the very best and worst of the mutant and human communities up close and personal during the war, and ultimately came to the conclusion that the whole thing wasn’t a case of mutants vs humans. If she thinks you’re being an idiot, you probably are. Smith’s mutation is similar to her mother’s the main difference is that her power is solar volatile constructs. “Wait, a gnome got shot?”
The eldest of Gambit’s two children is the spitting image of a father he never knew. Raised by the neutral Morlocks until they officially disbanded leaving only Lebeau under the group name. He has since started to attempt to rebuild “his real family” as a group of like-minded individuals. His x-factor grants him the ability to blow shit up or freeze things just by waving at it. His power is technically considered molecular acceleration / deceleration. Sonny is the undisputed anarchist king of Chicago's mutant underground. more on this canon here “Oh, *fuck you*! I'm not the rope-totin' Charlie Bronson wannabe that's getting us fucking lost!”
--- --- HUNTER
HAKAN | 25 - 35 |OPEN
Hakan is a pyrokinetic mutant who has lived a fairly reclusive life on a rural reservation in Montana. Although he is in his twenties, his great pride in tradition and study makes him speak as though he is far older. Between the ongoing maltreatment from white townsfolk, and the mass hatred for mutantkind he has grown to be an angry young man with a very short fuse. If he continues to stay on the reservation with his family it is only a matter of time before he is found out to be a mutant. “Hoka Hey.”
--- --- DREYFUS
OPEN | 25-35 | OPEN
A lot of people know about Dreyfus, she is after all one of the most sought after actresses of her generation. What nobody seems to know is that the reason people can't help but be drawn to her is because she has the power of siren mimicry and the whole beacon emission thing just sort of happens. Dreyfus is one of those people that others make offhanded adoring 'could get away with murder' jokes about. The best part about those jokes is that it's entirely true because she has gotten away with it in the past, though truthfully it was in self defense. “Hell yeah I'm the motherfucking Princess.”
Hua became the newest member of the X-Men out of sheer persistence and strength of character. Every day for nearly a month she would show up and be told she was mistaken, and by the end of that period of time she gave up leaving the premises after her dismissal. Instead she took up 'residence' in their ground floor lounge, just outside the actual HQ interior. By then her persistence was met with genuine respect and not exacerbation. Her family has lived in Chicago's Chinatown since the 1920s, and she is only the second generation to graduate from University. Hua comes from a long line of mutants but she is the first in nearly 200 years to have a truly formidable power, an ancestral mutation, Dragon Mimicry. Wingless flight? Fire resistance? Psh, yeah. No big deal right? If only it could have saved the team when the Firehouse fell. She's faced with a choice: try to get the band back together, or refocus her efforts to help people with medicine instead of firepower. "Hot stuff! Comin' through!"
--- --- MOONSTAR
Dani Moonstar's only child can barely remember when Salem Center was evacuated and he and his mother rejoined the Cheyenne nation. Their leaders never supported the mutant hunts and they've outright refused mutant registration to this day. It was the best possible place for a young mutant to grow up, and even though his mother was de-powered on M-Day, she encouraged him to grow and hone his ability of Energy Constructs when it manifested. However, Dani was highly resistant to the idea of him joining the new X-Men after the broadcast, until 2037 when she caved and reached out to her old friends to see what they knew. He was excited to be a part of the team, thinking he had found a place to call home, to really make a difference. He was at home when Division kicked down the door, answering an urgent call from his mother. He came back to a ruin swarming with Division agents and a mystery to solve instead of his friends. “You don't care about the environment? That's fucked up, man!”

Nick Fury's granddaughter is an investigative war time correspondent fury makes it her business to put herself in places and positions she doesn't belong. Currently her position has got her digging into Division, despite her editor telling her no on the story. She's pro-mutant rights and that can be seen in her writing. But she also thinks there's a whole lot more to Division than the front they are putting up. “What if you had to tell someone the most important thing in the world, but you knew they'd never believe you?”
--- --- BENNETT
OPEN | 19 - 25 | OPEN
Bennett makes no apologies for who he is. As a hardcore Pro-Mutant Activist he's surely seen his share of troubles, and the backside of cell bars in Chicago central. He means well, he just has a lot more passion than caution. Deep down, he's always wanted to be a mutant as well - to be special. He's been a research assistant at Worthington Industries ever since the head of the company was apparently transformed into a mutant, determined to discover how she gained powers.. "...you just gestured to all of me."
--- --- FOUCAULT
Mayor | 38+ | OPEN
How do you manage to become a power player in Chicago's political scene in your early 30s? Serious determination, flexible morals, and a very thick skin. He didn't really become the celebrity politician he is now until he latched onto the anti-mutant movement. Rumors that he's a member of the Purifiers have done nothing to dim his popularity. Whether or not he truly believes what he says about the mutant menace, alleged threats against him propelled him into the mayor's office in November 2036. And after that, he might be setting his sights even higher. “Man looks in the abyss, there's nothing staring back at him. At that moment, man finds his character..”
--- --- AMORY
OPEN | 22 | OPEN
Amory has never been entirely comfortable with mutants. She was still young during the war, which displaced her from her home on the east coast, but she still remembers losing her childhood home. Now she's a young adult with connections and a college degree, which helped her turn her ambition into a job at the mayor's office. Through all of this, she has had no idea that her college sorority sister HARRIS (see registered mutant canons) is not quite what she seems. Her new boss was elected on an aggressively anti-mutant policy, and she's going to have to make a choice about what she really believes. “Politics have no relation to morals.”
--- --- MCCOY
---- | 18 | OPEN
McCoy is the youngest of four children belonging to Dr. Cecilia Reyes and Dr. Hank McCoy. She's also the only one who has yet to manifest any sort of mutant ability. It's unclear whether or not she's just a late bloomer or if she really does not have an x-factor, but she's okay with that. She doesn't need a superpower to get into trouble; she's been arrested at least twice for taking part in mutant rights protests. Her most immediate concern is her missing brother, Bloodline. His last message let her know he'd arrived safely in Chicago, but now he doesn't seem to exist, and she feels like she's the only one looking. "Not everything about being human is nice."

Detective Townsend is unwell. That's what they whisper when he's out of earshot. He was on the scene of a riot in 2023 and took a bad hit, suffering brain damage that he's been living with ever since. That hasn't stopped his work as a Criminal Profiler, but it has left him with a lot of lingering effects and a troubling set of attachment issues. It hasn't stopped his humanitarian spirit, either. He's always been drawn to lost causes, often to his detriment in the difficult atmosphere of the city. He just won't give up on finding meaning in his life. “Does this darkness have a name?”

Perez never really thought all that much about mutants outside of the fact that they existed. She was always too busy focusing on her studies, and it wasn't like she knew any mutants anyway. Or rather didn't know she knew any. It wasn't until she began working in the emergency room of a Chicago hospital that she ever actually had to start paying attention to the world beyond her own. Her sudden awareness has not made for a smooth transition, in fact so far it's been both frightening and surprisingly dangerous. "I don't know what to say... or think... except..."
Baek is not the first to use the digital alias 'Nobody'. The title came with the network of contacts she inherited by tracking down and poisoning its previous holder, transforming her from bored grad student to information broker. Secrets are what she trades in, and she's not exactly particular about who she'll deal with - or who she'll double cross the second someone else makes her a better offer. Sure, she has to keep looking over her shoulder for the rest of her life in case anyone else seeks a Sith promotion like her own. But at least she's no longer bored. “When you can be anybody you become nobody.”
Here is a man who has it all. Money, control of his own company, and a carefully cultivated charisma. And yet he still never changed his surname from 'Von Doom'. That should tell you a lot about what's going on just beneath the smooth surface. As Victor Von Doom's only son he is now the ruler of Latveria, and as such enjoys a certain amount of diplomatic immunity when traveling to Chicago. You may have fought his malfunctioning DoomBots back in 2035, or seen the early morning press conference that followed. You may even have heard that a public even he was hosting was attacked by vigilanes in 2037. Either way, he's been playing the part of power broker and has made himself difficult to ignore.

OPEN | 27 -30 | OPEN
Sato either has the world's worst or best luck, it's still a matter of debate. Her biological father was a Yakuza boss and when she was ten years old she was forced to flee the devastation of the Great Mutant War, as it was called in Japan. She was the only survivor and was found by a young couple wandering along an abandoned stretch of road carrying her cat. She was adopted by the couple several months later. When she was twelve she survived the private plan crash that took her adoptive mother’s life. Her adoptive father relocated to the American capital, taking her with him. He lived to see her graduate from college, cheering her on in the front row, but an attack attributed to the Morlocks ended his life a year later. She's both determined to build a new family for herself and afraid that she's cursed, somehow. “Life is only on earth, and not for long.”

Vesper Dragomirova isn't the newest employee with Division, but until recently, she's an asset that Grace Renfroe kept in the shadows. How she ever managed to keep her status as a mutant with Gargoyle Physiology a secret from the corporation is a wonder. It helps when you're the daughter of Mystique. She's one of the few people that outrank Agent Cope and she's very fond of reminding him. Vesper is the agent you send in when you need to bypass ethical decisions that would otherwise be considered illegal or difficult on the psyche."No, my question, I get to go first: Why in pluperfect hell would you pee on a corpse?"

Division has a number of downright frightening mutants in custody or in their employ. It might be easy to overlook Novak, a soft-spoken Croatian immigrant with the power of AEROKINESIS with all of the flashier powers. Until the air is pressed out of your lungs. You struggle to draw breath, and his is the last face you ever see... He's the most effective member of Division's black ops team for a reason. He's got a certain sadistic streak he tries to hide, and sought out work that would let him exercise it. "Just because I like you doesn't mean I won't kill you."
There is much more to Special Agent Cope than what meets the eye and he is not the sort of man to get on the wrong side of. He's an ambitious son of a bitch and he's got his sights set on Grace Renfroe's position as Director of Division. It is not likely that he was stop until that job is his. Very little is known about Cope's background except for the fact that he was adopted. "If you think you've won, you never saw me change the game"
LT. --- --- DIAZ
N/A | 30-40 | OPEN
It's not easy being the voice of reason, but that's what Diaz is constantly striving to be. She was recruited directly from the American military, where she was concentrated on disaster relief at the end of the war. For Division, she was a useful figure to put on recruitment posters - she was a war hero and the subject of a photo that became famous, trying to excavate the smoldering remains of New Jersey. Her value as a field agent is overshadowed by her value as a PR tool, and Diaz knows it. She just has to decide what she wants to do with that. "Seems to me, the last man standing gets final say on who's right or wrong."
--- --- Jimenez
OPEN | 32 - 39 | OPEN
Jimenez has recently become quite famous within the Chicago headquarters but it’s not because of his job performance. A mutant employee with precognitive death sense has predicted that he is without a doubt soon to lose an eye and possibly if not probably going to die. Seriously, the company has even started a pool on when, where and how he’s going to lose one of his eyes. The cybernetic r&d department has already been in touch, you know in case he survives and wants a fancy replacement. While Jimenez has not the most superstitious or religious person, these things have certainly shaken him. Enough so that he’s starting to question his life choices but not enough for him to change professions or retire. "Oh hell no."
COL. --- --- BAUER
OPEN | 34 - 44 | OPEN
Col. Bauer is one of those tough military mindset kind of guys, he does what he does because it's what he's told to do. He's a military man, he likes a military discipline. He was raised by mutant hating parents in a mutant hating community, and as anyone can tell you hate begets hate. Even without a good reason to hate them, he does and can't really explain why. It's all he knows and he's not really one to change his ways. "I'm going to put you in a hole for the rest of your life."
--- ---GREYSON
AGENT | 28 - 35 | OPEN
Greyson has a heavy distaste in his mouth for anything with the mutated X-Gene. He fought in WWIII against mutants, he has his reasons. Together with his partner, Andrew Cope, they had the highest success rate out of anyone in the department of catching their marks. When Cope was kidnapped by the Brotherhood during the Eisenhower Incident, it only strengthened his resolve. "You mean to tell me that you know how to produce sarcasm? I might be in shock."
----- - SULPICE
Special Agent Sulpice's family founded what is now the largest security consulting firm in France. Growing up she learned all about how to prevent security related crimes and by-proxy how to commit them. Her talents in these areas combined with her impressive intellectual aptitude eventually lead to her to aim higher and eventually found herself working for Interpol. When bundled with her family's notoriously checkered past, she became an invaluable asset and the perfect candidate to send deep undercover to investigate Division. Once everything was in place she quickly learned just how complicated and dangerous this assignment really was. "Once you're in hell, only the devil can help you out."
----- - JONES
Jones was born Lana Kincaid, the daughter of the mutant Cessily Kincaid, on Muir Island prior to Division's hostile takeover. Lana was the metal skinned baby that Dr. MacTaggert was trying to escape with when she was gunned down and everyone just assumed the baby died too. In a way she did die, at least in name. An entire lifetime cast aside by Division, forever to be unlived. The infant was given a generic, unremarkable name and raised on the island cut off from the rest of the world. As far as she knows her birth parents abandoned her for being born metallic and Division graciously took her in and gave her purpose instead of leaving her to die. It was by her X-Factor of metal mimicry that she survived the Muir Island Massacre and after 18 years of being raised as a soldier/experiment she is beyond her age in power training. Through blood, sweat and tears Jones has a level of control over her powers that many mutants twice her age still lack. "Did you look in the yellow pages under "black helicopter operations"?"
Merek has been around for a very, very long time, his mutant ability of Resurrection has seen to that. For him being an unaging mutant unable to die, or rather stay dead, is a curse which is the only reason he has agreed to aid Division in flushing mutants out into the open. He wants the so-called 'cure' that they're working on so that he might finally live out a mortal life and die the way people are supposed to. He also makes an excellent guinea pig for their various attempts, because if he dies he'll only stay dead if it worked. "I don't know how to respond to that..."
LtCol --- --- VEERS
OPEN | 35-45 | OPEN
Named for his grandfather, Donnie is the eldest son of Gen. H. M. Veers and was present the day Cain Marko escaped from Rykers. Having never really given any thought as to where he stands when it comes to the whole "Mutant problem" he had no issues with following his old man headfirst onto Division’s payroll. More than anything though this military man is a man of action, he lives to be in the middle of the fray. Though neither of them know it, Dr. Renfroe is his younger half-sister born out of an affair his father had with the Director of Division."I never sleep and I never give up."
--- --- GOODE
Goode excels at being duplicitous, because she absolutely loathes not getting her way. She's been this way for so long that she no-longer knows what she believes anymore. Even so, sorting things can wait. Her job has become a game of survival more than anything else. Spinning Division's line to the public keeps everything turning in her world for now. She plans on filling her bank account and taking an early retirement someplace nice, and she can figure it all out then. requested here. "Are you gonna bark all day little doggie?"
Having met Ms. Stark through their mutual work with the MHA, the daughter of Shadowcat and Colossus wasn't so much recruited to the X-men as she was a naturalized member. With the gift of Imperceptibility, Rasputin is able to move about virtually undetectable. Her power is such that all of the x-gene tests came back negative. It was not until she had a semi-traumatic experience with complete invisibility and inaudibility at the same time, that she realized she was a mutant. The fact that she finally had a power delighted her and given the nature of her ability and her mother's work with the MHA it only seemed right to use it to help people. Unfortunately, she was captured during the raid on the Firehouse. They know she'd vanish as soon as they turned her loose, so she's become an unwilling test subject for the Janus Formula. "No one said it was going to be easy..."
--- --- MCCOY
BLOODLINE | 21 | --
As the third child of Henry McCoy and Cecilia Reyes, he grew up immersed in mutant issues. However, unlike some of his rabble-rousing siblings, he was a natural observer. At least, he was until Division attempted to place him under arrest. His haemokinesis was believed to be a threat to the public, though he had never committed any crime. The timely intervention of the X-Men freed him before he could be transported to Fort Sheridan. Unfortunately, his escape was not all it seemed. He was dosed with an experimental chemical by Division: the Janus Formula. When he was activated, he betrayed the X-Men and brought Division agents to the Firehouse. Even he didn't know he had been subjected to chemical brainwashing until it happened, and now he's trapped, trying to find a way to break the chemical control and escape Division. "Anything sounds bad when you say it with that attitude."

The brotherhood was never truly gone, their orders simply changed. Watching the man who almost single handily reshaped the global acceptance for homosuperior and humans get brutally murdered by a government with a zero tolerance contingency has a way of pissing off a lot of people. After discovering the global conspiracy to assassinate key figures in order to win the war, Mystique tried in vain to get her Intel to the right people; but she was too late. Charles and Erik were lost. Any ties that she had to the life she knew before the reign of blood and the events of M-Day were lost in the ashes of post war slaughter.

Heavy was the burden for Mystique when she stepped into the shoes of her former guru. Since then she has forgone the usual practice of active recruiting and has simply protected the few remaining members as a sort of estranged family. Most of her charges were only children when she took over, so they've had a good number of years to grown and learn not only their mutations and how to use them, but of the philosophies exampled by Magneto. A number of the younger mutants in the group were raised by the shapeshifter herself, but there were a few left to their own devices, who have since been tapped back into active duty now that Division has crossed lines that are unforgivable. Mystique's orphans of war combined with the well seasoned vets have become far more than a team, they are a family.*marvel canon "That which is done out of love always takes place beyond what is good and evil"

In 2024 Marko became the first high profile mutant to ever publicly thwart and evade the MCEA at every turn. It's safe to say that he has been at the very top of every MCEA/Division shit-list that has been produced ever since. Breaking out of Rykers and subsequently allowing for almost a dozen others to do the same, on top of royally fucking up the head of the MCEA's Christmas tends to do that. His return to the Brotherhood had little to do with the mutant supremacy ideals and more to do with a deeply rooted refusal to sit back and do nothing. He's been to Rykers, he knows what they do there and that Division has managed to wind its way into almost every level of the government. Unlike his twin sons, the Juggernaut himself is not a mutant but rather the Avatar of Cytorrak. *marvel canon “Sticks and stones, love. I saved your life, you saved mine. We're square.”
--- --- RIPLEY
Ersatz is highly intelligent, well read, well spoken and well dressed. Contrary to popular belief he is not a true sociopath, if he was it would very likely cancel out his power. Empathic Mimicry does require a certain level of empathy after all. Ripley was one of the first War Orphans collected by Mystique. Ripley's uncanny ability to temporarily take on the mutant powers of others coupled with his love of order have made him an excellent scout and spy. If there is anyone within the brotherhood that can be counted on to get things done on time it's him. "He used to say, sometimes you need to do something bad to stop you from doing something worse."
DUST | 36 - 41 | OPEN
Sooraya became a target for Rev. Stryker after it had been predicted that she would play a vital role in the downfall of the Purifiers. Though Wolverine got the last laugh where Stryker was involved, Dust managed to use her powers to eliminate a large portion of the Purifiers. During the attack on the Pentagon she was turned to glass by Magma while she was in dust form and was shattered. Though Magma was able to reverse the process, the incident was traumatic on both a mental and physical level and she has never been quite the same since. Whether it was due to natural progression or with the aid of her friendly neighborhood power broker her power has advanced from being just Sand Mimicry to also having the ability of Dehydration. The combination of the two allow her to essentially mummify living beings. "Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Damned"*marvel canon, with slightly altered GotA timeline
Keller was only five years old when her father lead the mutant attack on the pentagon. She knew nothing of this, only that her father never came home. She was raised alongside a few other "orphans of war" primarily by Mystique. Mutants first, is practically the only way of life she's ever really known. She's stubborn, fiercely independent and aspects of the Brotherhood mentality have also affected her in a positive light. She's not likely to let anyone push her around or treat her as a lesser citizen because she's younger, a mutant and/or female. With an X-Factor like Odynokinesis (Pain Manipulation) she sure as hell can make anyone pay for their stupidity. Or you know, keep them in line. "People don’t always tell the truth when you’re polite."
--- --- TUNDE
Tunde was born and raised in Wakanda, coming from a line of witch doctors and folk medicine. He left home as a teenager with the intent of becoming an actual doctor and bringing his knowledge and degree back home. Were it not for the war he likely would have become the doctor he had always dreamt of being. When the brotherhood found him in 2024 he was a warlord in Nigeria. His first run-in with the brotherhood involved him using a combination of folk medicine and his mutation of Snake Mimicry/Control to save the lives of a few of the members. "When I was a child, I spoke as a child..."
--- --- WATERS
Up until recently Waters was a Division Security Guard with the highest level of clearance. Whoever he was before the Brotherhood died the day their paths crossed because every memory he ever had before that day was burned out of his skull to make room for his shiny new mutation. It can be safely assumed that going from human to having the X-Factor of Shark Mimicry was not his choice, but he'll likely never be aware of that. The Brotherhood told him they found him beaten within an inch of his life and left for dead. This is his reality, and he has come to love them as though they truly were his flesh and blood family. “Can I have an adamantium jaw?”
--- --- BLUME
Blume is neither a new recruit or an old one, more than anything she has been more along the lines of an affiliate. She set up shop in Chicago once it was officially deemed the new Capitol. After all, the Stitch is a business woman in a particularly lucrative field after all black market organs practically sell themselves. Mostly she gets the goods from willing "donors" who are either strapped for cash, those in her debt and your parts are being repossessed and sometimes it's to get rid of a body. Her combination of Psychic Surgery/Healing guarantees little to no recuperation time and body parts completely free of disease. She works as a healer on the side, but when it comes to this the Stitch does not take money - she deals in favors. These favors can range from a simple request to literally losing your arm, leg or even life. It's all proportionate to your debts of course. No-one is entirely sure how old she is and there's a weird rumor that all of her body guards and enforcers are actually her sons. "There are consequences to breaking the heart of a murdering bastard." FOR MORE INFO
Over the course of an unknown number of years the mutant known as Sabertooth intentionally knocked up women throughout his travels. Sabercat is only one of an unknown number of bastards, and one of the few known ones to still be alive. She never knew her father, only his reputation and through other people. She changed her surname to Creed once she found out who and what she was. Of all of Victor's children Sabercat's mutation is the closest to being an exact replication of Sabertooth's original X-Factor. Her only known sibling is her elder half-brother Caius, who opted not to stick with the brotherhood post-war. "Happy endings are just stories that haven't finished yet."
In his days Magneto tried just about everything to stop what he knew was coming and even died trying. Even though he is gone his final attempt at creating a world for mutants lives on, through his son. Or rather, his clone. Ever since this simple, elegant idea was thought up and put into action Legacy's bloodline has been a well kept secret. Raised primarily by Mystique, she made sure he saw it all. The way mutants live all across the world, from places like Wakanda where mutants are honored to Russia where they were slaughtered. Legacy is not a master of magnetism, as the plan was not to create a second Magneto. No, he has the power of Bestowal. Legacy can turn humans into mutants - though he can't control the power they'll manifest. He can reactivate a depowered mutant’s power, steal their powers or in some cases give mutants power enhancements. Reactivating a depowered mutant's ability is one thing but for a human to become a mutant there is a price; natural humans always seem to lose one thing or another to make room for an activated X-Gene. “What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?”*PM Admin for details
Ewan MacTaggert is the son of Moria MacTaggert and Charles Xavier, but make no mistake, he is not his father's son. Gifted with the ability of Limited Telepathy Ewan is able to read the surface thoughts or erase the short term memory of anyone he encounters. Born and raised in Scotland, he has been in exile from the world in Edinburgh for the better half of his adult years. Recent developments within the world at large have given him a need to travel to the states. "Everyone dies alone."
Isla was not born, she was made from cosmic matter an Jean Grey's genetic template. The latter is why people tend to think that she is another reincarnation of Jean rather than a new being unto herself. Her cosmic awareness and peculiar entrance into existence has caused a disconnect between herself and everyone else. People seem to think she's crazy but she's more like a toddler learning about the world. You know if that toddler had dangerously and wildly uncontrolled Psionic Manipulation. Isla's placement with the Brotherhood is strictly a case of finders keepers. She doesn't have anyone else; The Phoenix Force designed her that way. "She understands. She doesn't comprehend."

BRAINIAC | 30 - 36 | OPEN
The daughter of Doctor Nemesis has spent her entire life running. For the first half it was out of fear of being discovered, and the second half in the name of sport. There is nothing she loves more than using her x-factor to screw with figures of authority, to the point where it has become a game to her. She is a woman who always has a book in her hand, not because she’s the studious type but because her ability of knowledge replication/absorbtion requires her to do so. As long as she holds the book she will know all of the information it holds. "Catch me if you can."
--- --- THRACE
This elf looking motherfucker is as dangerous as he is beautiful. What makes him dangerous is not his physical capabilities or even his powers - at least not directly, it’s the side-effects you need to watch out for. Thrace’s mutation of Negative Emotion Empowerment works through his ability to aborb emotions, just being within twenty feet of him is enough to seemingly end your (emotional) suffering. In many cases this draws people to him, makes them like him, makes them think they love him because he’s taken away their pain (though it will come back.) Under the right conditions people might even worship him or treat him like a king... which was something that had been taking place when the Brotherhood found him. The rest of the blurb/ad for Thrace can be found here. “This too shall pass.”

There was never a chance that the daughter of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts would be average or live a normal life. Even without her ability super-human abilities, she was always going to be gifted. The Techno-Extremis she was born with is just a perk. Granted, she spent the majority of her life under the belief that she was a technopathic mutant, but she actually falls under the ‘suis generis’ column as a metahuman. Antigone has never once played the pity card in regards to what Division did to her father, and has worked damn hard overcome the stain Division placed on the Stark name. She built her own billion-dollar company, was a co-founder of the new X-Men and will take any opportunity she can to throw a wrench into Division's plans. Even with the X-Men’s current status, Stark still has her fingers in a lot of different pies - including using her X-Resources to run this Ghost Op. Hemingway once wrote, "The world's a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.
HIVE | "19" | VERA
As a part of a sub-experiment the chambers containing the Combs were not stored with the bulk of Weapon XIV and thus some of them miraculously survived the Phoenix Force’s attack. Though they were not physically harmed by the fires that killed their many sisters, the hive mind that bound them all together ensured lasting psychological scars. Their fear of fire is such that within the first ten minutes of being removed from stasis they attacked David Summers for lighting a cigar in their presence. The collective's grown from three to four, and then to five when the first four dredged Irma Cuckoo from Scotland. It is worth noting that their creators laced their bones with nano-technology for added durability and that they have the defensive ability of a diamond form. "The Universe does not grade on a curve. It's strictly pass/ fail."
