Personality & Traits

General Overview General Overview: Cole is an augmented human, but not a typical one. He is in good shape and is strong enough, but no more so than anyone else his age that takes care of themselves might be. And while he might be brighter than average, his intelligence is well within human norms. His agility, is perhaps his best non-augmented skill, he does have exceptional hand-eye coordination and he can be quite elusive. Nevertheless, even that agility is that of a normal, though very talented person.

His augmentation is little different.

He's a touch telepath and he has the ability to cause confusion in people without touching them. It is easier for him to confuse weak-willed people than strong-willed people. He uses the ability in two different ways. He can use it to distract them so he can get close enough to touch them, and use his primary ability, his touch telepathy to read their thoughts and memories. Or he can use it to reboot someone’s mind, causing them to forget what they were about to do, essentially taking them back in time thirty seconds.

In addition to his psychic abilities, he has also undergone extensive training in mimicking other people and has learned how to use makeup and disguise skills to change his appearance.

Cole is learning to control his abilities, but he is still very much a raw talent. While he is starting to get a handle on his ability to disorient people or reboot them, he doesn't have total control. If a person that he attempts it on is resistant, it may not work. The more confusion he has to create, the more he has to focus and this can leave him a defenseless target. He has to become within three meters of someone for this power to affect others, but it can affect both friend and foe that are in the area. And too much exertion causes him to get headaches, sometimes severe and debilitating.

Generally, he has to make a conscious effort to use to disorient people. However, if he is particularly stressed, or if he is frightened of someone, it can trigger without him intending it to.

He has to touch a person to read their thought or memories.

He is more street smart than book smart and he has picked up some ability to hack into various security systems and he is an accomplished pickpocket.

The Alliance made him an orphan, a fringe group turned him into the person he is now, and as far as he is concerned the Confederation did little to protect him, like they should have. He has done some very dark things to survive, things he doesn’t want anyone to know. All of those things have made him both untrusting and hard. He may only be sixteen, but those sixteen years have been very hard on him. They didn’t break him however, only made him more resolved to survive and to get his revenge.
Strengths & Weaknesses Cole has a look of innocence about him, almost a vulnerability. This is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, he can be overlooked, taken for granted, or underestimated. On the other hand, it can make people think he is weak and that they can take advantage of him. The things he has gone through, have hardened him and made him stronger. They have left him disillusioned and bitter. He can't imagine being normal, not in this universe. Despite everything he has been through, he still has a strong moral compass, but that is overshadowed by his need for survival and his thirst for revenge against those who have wronged him. Despite the innocent look, he can be cold and calculating. He has killed before and would not hesitate to do so again if he had to. He has trust and commitment issues. He is highly efficient and organized.
Ambitions Get revenge for what was done for him, find some way to make himself rich and find someone to settle down with and have a life with.

Hobbies & Interests He doesn’t have much experience with the holodeck but once he does he’ll be hooked and want to spend as much time there as he can. He likes to cook and has become pretty accomplished at it.

Personal History Cole was born on Darius IV a wild and wooly border planet close to the Neutral Zone. He doesn’t remember much about his first four years but they were spent in relative peace. Then the Alliance came and everything changed in a hurry. His parents and most of the other adults were killed and he became an orphan. He doesn’t talk much about the next five year of his life, but they were hard. That is where he learned to steal,hack into security systems and use his innocent appearance as a weapon.

When he was around ten, one of the groups opposing the Alliance, but that was not aligned with the Confederacy raided the orphanage where he was. At first, he thought his prayers to one of the unnamed deities had come true. Then, when the so called rescuers started to kill kids seemingly at random, he realized how wrong he was. In some ways, he considers himself lucky he was for being selected for augmentation experiments. Many of the other other rescued orphans were forced into prostitution, or experimented on in even less pleasant ways. About a year ago, he managed to escape killing a few guards in the process. The last year has been a difficult one for the teenager, who is now sixteen. He has done things he never thought he would ever do, things he would not reveal to anyone, just to survive. Having nowhere is to turn to, he made contact with the Confederacy and was assigned to the ISS Vanguard.
