This Douche by puffballinthedark
This Douche
this fucker is the CEO of delta industries
he was a fuckin' prodigy in gerneral, and he's way too smart for his own good. growing up he was always interested in medicine, so he went to college to become a neurosurgeon. In college he started to develop the idea of mechanical brain tissue, and was working on it as a side project since freshman year. After his 10 years of training, he became a licensed neurosergeon, and with the money he earned, he devoted most of his time to developing his biotech. after a few more years, he had a working prototype, and started looking for candidates to test on, often finding people with inoperable brain tumors to be his first guinea pigs. after his sucessful transpants, he was confident in his ability, and created a special brain for himself, allowing him enhanced intelligence, memory, and senses. After replacing half of his brain with it, however, he quickly discovered that he had made a mistake. Though he did gain the enhancements he designed for himself, the new abilities soon drove him to mania. His artificial intelligence could not handle the concept of his own death, seeing as that half of him had never been faced with it, and dying became incomprehensible, and terrifying. He also began lacking empathy, becoming aggressive, and losing touch with the more human part of himself. The combination of all of these things started to drive him mad, and instead of seeing his biotech as a way of saving people's lives, he viewed it as his gate to immortality. He became obsessed in his quest for eternal life, and chose to experiment on children, as their bodies could heal faster, allowing his research to progress at a faster rate. He continued to sell his product as a solution to terminal brain cancer, plastering pediatric hospitals with advertisements about it, and using the media to get the word out. With enough guinea pigs, he was able to really begin his work, taking out both cancerous and healthy brain tissue bit by bit, replacing it with his parts, hoping that they would be able to survive until the end. However, none of them did. Victor began to panic; his life's work not living up to his expectations, he became impulsive, and careless. as questions about the morality of his company surfaced, he paid no regard to them, and continued his deadly experiment with more fervor than ever, praying for just one child to survive a full transplant. Soon there was a ploice investigation, resulting in Delta industries being forced to close. Victor hired the best lawyer he could find, and got away with only minor charges. He went into hiding after the trial, to rebuild his medical facility in secret, and continue on his mission. Currently he is trying to find the children who survived the experiments before the lab was closed down. He believes that if anyone can survive a full transplant, it's the kids who have already survived a partial one.
Nobody is sure to what extent he can control the artificial brains implanted in his patients, but most of them have reported seeing him, and each other in similar situations in their dreams.
He named his comapny delta, because in math delta is usually used for the rate of change, and Victor wanted to change the world with his technology.
As the one conducting the experiment, he was the one to operate on most of the children, developing a very personal relationship with each of them. In the facility, it was a big inside joke to call him dad.
he's pretty much gone batshit insane. he's  suuper agressive, oddly casual at times, and pops a fucking fuse if things don't go his way. just avoid him, he is a psycho.

Gwen is totally fucking  terrified of this guy. odds are she's going to have to deal with him a lot in the future, and she just does not want to do that.
Victor has taken a special interest in Gwen, on account of her superpowered abilities, and is working very hard to track her down and bring her back to the facility.

I don't  know why I keep making characters related to gwen.

gwennie by puffballinthedark
gwennie
Name: Gwen Rhodes

Race: Human

Gender: Female

Age: 16

Appearance: Gwen is about 5'6 with light hazel eyes, and shoulder-length dark strawberry blonde hair. Due to the surgeries preformed on her in the lab, she also has scars running the length of her hairline, and down the back of her neck. Around the base of her skull are 7 ports that allow access to her cybernetically enhanced brain, that she usually covers up with colorful dust plugs when she doesn't have them plugged into her suit. On her head she wears goggles with a white band, that she uses to check her vitals, and communicate. On her body she wears a specially designed body armor that can camouflage. It is opaque on her chest and arms, becomes transparent around her ribcage, and returns to opaque around the top of her waist down to her feet. The opaque parts are adorned with a large circuit pattern, that allows her to change the colors of the costume, and also charge her flight gear. Her flight gear is white and consists of a chest plate, high-waisted bikini style bottoms, and large rocket powered boots. when not in use, or out of fuel, the flight gear can fold up, becoming something like a backpack with a shoulder guard. The suit is designed to mainly protect her from temperature changes, and bullet impacts.

History: as the only daughter of a dentist and an architect, Gwen's childhood was spent in a comfortable upper-middle class household. As a kid, she was a hyperactive and excitable little toddler. She would eat bugs, play in the dirt, and had enough energy to fuel a nuclear reactor. Already tired out after just 4 years with her, they sent her into kindergarten a year early, just to have some quiet around the house during the day. Even if she was a bit of a handful, her parents still spoiled her, giving her all of the newest toys and gadgets,which sparked her passion for technology and learning. During elementary school she was prone to getting into trouble for playing pranks on her friends, and occasionally teachers, which resulted in more than a few calls home. But she had good friends, and patient parents, and her bond with both was unshakable. However, her innocent childhood was cut short, as during her 10th year she was diagnosed with stage 1 brain cancer.  She spent a good majority of her middle school days in the hospital because of her condition, and she lost contact with a lot of her old friends. She became much more serious, and focused. During her stays there, she would spend hours asking the doctors questions about her condition, where it was spreading, what the best treatments would be, and how the technology they were using on her worked. They decided to try chemo and radiation, but none of the treatments were reducing the tumors. As  time went on, she began realizing that the outlook was grim, and stopped asking so many questions about it. Instead, she spent her time asking to hear stories about the lives of anyone who came into her room, to make up for the experiences she wasn't going to get. By her 13th birthday, the cancer had spread to vital regions of her brain, such as movement, and speech, and her case quickly became classified as terminal. This event is what she considers to be a defining moment in her life, where she really had to figure out who she was. Faced with death, she immediately requested that this information be kept a secret to everyone that didn't need to know. She didn't want what was left of her friends to become scared of her, and she didn't want a stranger's pity. This was her fight, and she was determined to go out with grace. She really began formulating her beliefs around then; reading up on wicca, buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, astral projection, even the convincing atheists she would listen to. At the hospital, her room was practically a holy site, and she meditated and burned candles whenever she could get out of sight of the nurses. She spent the majority of her time there trying to comfort her parents. Oddly enough, she viewed her diagnosis as more positive than anything, knowing that whatever happens after you die, chemotherapy isn't one of them. Nor is college, or making up 4 years of missed school, or having to deal with really anything at all. She saw what was left of her life through new eyes suddenly, asking to be let out of her room whenever possible, to go to zoos, or amusement parks, even if she was in a wheelchair. She got into contact with her old friends, got her sense of humor back, and became something of her old self again. For the first time in years, she was actually happy.
Her parents, however, took the news much differently. Though they were happy to see her come back to life at the end of it all, they refused to accept the fact that she was dying. Even in the face of the terminal diagnosis, they continued to search for the viable breakthroughs, eventually stumbling upon a startup biotech company by the name of Delta Industries. Their mission was to save people with even the most advanced stages of brain cancer, by replacing the tissue completely. Ecstatic that they had found a cure for her, they agreed to the terms, and brought their daughter to the facility. Gwen, on the other hand, wasn't so excited. She was ready for whatever was going to happen to her after death, but she respected the wishes of her parents, and halfheartedly agreed to the terms as well. The operations began as soon as possible, but it soon became clear that they were more interested in using her as a guinea pig for their biotech than curing her cancer. During her two years there, they removed over one third of her original brain matter, replacing it with cybernetic parts on a weekly basis. Her time spent in the facility was a haze of trying to understand what was happening, operations, and taking basic cognitive tests. other than that she was mainly confined to her room, trying to rest her destroyed brain. Her parents were so blinded by their hopes for her survival, they continued to pay for the treatment, regardless of how much it was destroying Gwen.Meanwhile, Suspicions about the company began rising, and Delta industries became more secretive about the goings-on in the lab. Not long after, the company was investigated by the police, and they were found to have been attempting to completely replace hundreds of children's brains with cybernetic ones, in the hopes of discovering the key to immortality. The testing resulted in the deaths of 95% of their patients, without a single successful transplant.
Everyone was horrified to hear the news. Gwen was terrified to think that even her thoughts aren't her own, and her parents were appalled to think that they might've killed their only child. She spent over a year at home, in almost complete isolation, recovering from the events in the lab. Luckily, the scientists did remove her tumors, and the patients she met in the lab  soon became some of her closest friends. Her religious devotion intensified tenfold during her year in recovery, and also spent a lot of time learning how to program, as a way for her to try and connect more with the technological side of her.
though the implanted cybernetic parts were state of the art, they were as close to a replica of her original brain tissue as they could manage, and gave her no intelligence enhancements. but they did give her something else. The scientists at Delta overlooked a very interesting part of the brain anatomy; the pineal gland, an organ said to control psychic powers. They replaced a small portion of this organ, and during her daily meditation, she discovered that in certain states, she was able to read and write the code running in her cybernetic brain, and by extension, the remaining parts of her old one. She gained the ability to control processes in her body she previously had no control over, such as cell division, and her heartbeat. Using this heightened bio control, she discovered a way to overclock the cells in her body, forcing them to metabolize at an enormous rate, allowing her to generate massive amounts of electricity, and discharge them at will. She also learned how to regenerate cells, and can heal herself quickly if injured.

Personality: after recovering from the events at Delta Industries, Gwen went back to being her old goofball self around people. She's confident, bubbly, witty, and has a passion for things that make people smile. She can never take things seriously, or turn down a dare.  She's slow to anger, quick to forgive, and tends to worry a lot if her friends are doing all right. She's full of dumb ideas, and dumber jokes, but she's just a ton of fun to be around. She hates it when people argue, or talk about other people though. She has a really low tolerance for that kind of stuff, and she can get pretty snappy when she's irritated. She also hates it when people interrupt her meditation, or rituals, or touch really anything in her room. When she's in a bad mood, she either won't talk at all, or she'll never stop griping, and there's no real way of knowing which one you're going to get. Also, she is very, very stubborn. If she really puts her mind to something there is no stopping her. She isn't easily offended, but she takes it very personally if someone pokes fun at her cybernetic parts, her cancer, or her time spent at Delta. Though she isn't one to hold a grudge, but it's very easy to lose her trust, and very hard to gain it back once it's gone.
when she's alone, she is much more introspective and self aware than her bubbly outgoing exterior might make you believe.
She has a tendency of hiding her real feelings from her friends, and when she's sad, or panicking, she'll hide.
at times she feels like her life is a constant battle between her spirit, and the science. She never really feels like she is one whole being, but the result of a battle between the two halves of her.
on one hand, she has a passion for science, and technology. She enjoys taking things apart, and building, writing code, Figuring things out, and being successful in the business world.
but on the other hand, she is a deeply spiritual person. After recieving the terminal diagnosis from the doctors, she put a lot of energy into figuring out what she believes, and becoming closer to god. She considers herself one part wiccan, and two parts Buddhist, but her belief system is truly her own, and she is very secretive and protective of it. she loves creating art, meditation, gardening, and being part of nature. She is heavily interested in occultism, and often does small rituals for good luck. She believes that her powers come from her spirit, and without her faith, she wouldnt have them.

it keeps her up a lot, thinking about whether or not she would rather have died before Delta got their hands on her, and she can never really come to a conclusive decision about it.
She has an intense fear of doctors, and hospitals, and PTSD from her experience, but she would never admit it.
She worries that the scientists at Delta will come back for her one day, or her cancer comes back before they do.
she also wonders if her new brain is starting to give her a split personality, and if it has its own will and intentions that she believes to be her own.
her biggest fear is that the scientist built backdoors into her head, that could someday give them control over her. she keeps a cyanide pill on her at all times.


Weakness: when dealing with really anything that isn't strictly biological or technical, her abilities are almost useless. For example, if she was fighting something made out of stone, like a golem, or something like a ghost, she would have to rely on other people around her, or her environment. Also, without her suit, she's nearly immobile, considering the boots weigh her down if the suit has no power. water can be both a benefit and a weakness, considering it enhances her powers by being an excellent conductor, but to an unmanageable extent, where she's likely to end up electrocuting herself or her teammates, if they're touching the water as well. Also, If her flight gear is ever sumbmerged in the water, she wouldn't be able to flly until her jets heat up again. Any psychic block would render her useless, and coupled with all of her regular human disabilities, such as fragile bones and thin skin, heaped upon her general frailness from spending 6 years on a gurney, she isn't much of a fighter to begin with. The only thing she really has going for her is her electricity and her average human intillect. She prefers to either fight from the sidelines, out of harm's way, or strategize.

Weapons: Gwen mainly uses her electric shocks to deal damage. In a pinch, she can use the heat from her flight suit to burn things, but she relies heavily on her electricity. She utilizes the element of surprise more often than not, camouflaging with her suit, and attacking from behind, or sneaking up on enemies from above. Given the fact that if she's not dealing with something that can be effected by electricity, she's dead in the water, she has become very resourceful when finding weapons to use. She likes to plan, so she enjoys making elaborate traps out of the available resources in her environment, like trash cans, and skateboards.

Abilities: Unfortunately her cybernetic brain gave her no intelligence enhancements, though it did spark a passion for technology. she is pretty skilled at breaking into systems, and general programming.  Also, She can create electric shocks from any part of her body, and regenerate small injuries if she can get away from the fight and focus on them. She has become pretty proficient in astral projection, and lucid dreaming, so she knows a lot about herself, but her wiccan rituals and spells she does only for herself, and they have no real effect.

this technology girl or something by puffballinthedark
this technology girl or something
ok so at one point she was a superhero sona of myself but now she's something different.
but she doesnT HAVE A NAME ARRG

she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at 12, but this shady biotech company found her, trapped her parents in an agreement, and began testing their experimental technology on her. They removed over a third of her brain, and replaced it with cybernetic parts. These parts were as close to a replica of her original brain tissue as they could manage, but they overlooked a very interesting part of the brain anatomy; the pineal gland, an organ said to control psychic powers. They replaced a small portion of this organ, and she soon discovered that during certain meditative states, she was able to read and write the code running in her cybernetic brain, and by extension, the remaining parts of her old one. She gained the ability to control processes in her body she previously had no control over, such as cell division, and her heartbeat. after years of training, she managed to find a way to overclock the cells in her body, forcing them to metabolize at an enormous rate, allowing her to generate massive amounts of electricity, and discharge them at will.
she also has decent regenerative powers, because of her ability.
Out of the hundreds of kids involved in the tests, only abut 5 percent survived. Soon after these experiments, the company was investigated, and shut down.
However, the scientists involved in the project didn't forget about her. Her mind is technically their property, and they aren't going to let that go any time soon.

at times she feels like her life is a constant battle between her spirit, and the science. She never really feels like she is one whole being, but the result of a battle between the two halves of her.
on one hand, she has a passion for science, and technology. She enjoys taking things apart, and building, writing code, Figuring things out, and being successful in the business world.
but on the other hand, she is a deeply spiritual person. she loves creating art, meditation, gardening, and being part of nature. She is heavily interested in occultism, and often does small rituals for good luck. She isn't really sure if her brain is bringing her closer to god or farther away, but she really believes that though the scientists might've taken a part of her humanity, they can't take away her soul.

She worries that they'll come back for her one day, or the cancer comes back, and they don't.
she also wonders if her new brain is starting to give her a split personality, and if it has its own will and intentions that she believes to be her own.
her biggest fear is that the scientist built backdoors into her head, that could someday give them control over her. she keeps a cyanide pill on her at all times.

Red, yellow and blue by puffballinthedark
Red, yellow and blue
sorry for the shit quality, I drew this like, two years ago but I found it again and now I'm crying all over the place

these three are super important in my dreams. I met them in the white city when I was a kid, and we had all of these wonderful adventures. they considered themselves a gang, and we skateboarded around the city, just exploring. The whole city is run by this bank, but the guy in charge of it is an enormous asshole.
he was working for the mayor, so we messed with him whenever an opportunity presented itself, which resulted in us getting kicked out of the bank constantly. we would skateboard around the hallways, and into the lobby, and it was just so much fun being with them.
they were the only real friends I've ever had in my dreams. we hung out, and laughed, and joked around. I was never too good at skateboarding, and Red would always poke fun at me about it.
Yellow never really trusted me, but after a while we became pretty close friends, and she lightened up. Blue was always really quiet, but I could tell he kinda saw me as his younger sister.

after a while though, the mayor started doing all of these terrible things trying to find me, like burning towns down, and sending armed troops to areas, interrogating people about where I was.
every location in my dreams was under constant attack, and I realized that my friends in the white city were in serious danger.
There are certain people in my dreams who I think have a lot more power than the average joe. I only know of three right now, being the Red Tie guy, the Mayor, and myself. Each of us can lucid dream, and kind of bend the reality to our will. My friends in the white city were the only people who didn't know I could do that, and that was a big part of why I was able to become so close with them. People like me aren't really trusted that much, considering what the mayor has been doing.
It was a big shock telling them, so they kind of stopped trusting me as much as they used to. upon that, They had never left the city, and had no idea about the kind of issues going on outside of it. Leaving his home really fucked up red, and he didn't know who to trust, He became moody, and aggrivated. Yellow was disappointed in me, as the face of the revolution. At the time I was only semi-conscious in dreams, so whatever control I had only extended to control of myself, instead of the whole world. Blue was still quiet about things, but he didn't talk to me as much, and took care of red and yellow more. They were all so destroyed about having to leave their home forever, it broke my heart.
I wanted to leave then in Grit City, where it was safe, but after our traveling together, they decided that they wanted to come with me, and protect me.
Yellow became my doppleganger, kind of. If people were looking for me, we would give them so I wasn't put in any real danger, and if something happened to them, I could get them out.
Red became our weapons guy. He was kind of my bodyguard, and he was stocked to the nines with knives. He didn't trust anyone.
Blue was our negotiator. If we had any issues with civilians, or soldiers, he would be the one to talk them down or blend in.

it's just really sad that I'm never gonna be able to have that again. the world has become so fucked up. I don't know where half of them are. I haven't seen Blue in ages. Yellow was captured, and Red and Red tie guy went to save her when I stopped dreaming. White city is still how it used to be, but none of us will ever really be able to go back there.
I'm never going to have my childhood friends back, and I hate thinking about it.
