Clarification and Rankings
So thanks to the wonderful corrections and questions of some of you guys I’ve realised that I really needed to clarify things a bit more. In case you haven’t already, go read my foreword, that should help with some of it and I’ll be updating it as I go, but for now here are a few key points to clear up.
- What is the DFH?
You know how America has the CIA and FBI whilst the UK has MI5 and 6 (and supposedly a 7 but I’m not sure I believe that one)? Well I figured we’d probably try and have our own name for the DVA. Now I did have something somewhere that told me what DFH stood for, but in my copious editing and rewrites I managed to delete it… and then forgot what it stood for.
So I’m going with the Department For Homosuperious!!!
(Yes I know it’s really pretentious sounding and I cringe now every time I write it. If you want me to change it to DVA I am more than happy to! (Alternatively Drew could just come out and say that the DVA is an international body or something then I’d have to for canon purposes. Just saying Drew if you read this 😉 ) ).
2. There are two schools here?
Yes there are and in an earlier version I did explain this, however it got cut and I forgot that not everyone could or would read my mind. So yes there are two schools (we have a lot of single sex schools in the UK and since I went to an all-girls school for years I figured why not try it out in the HCP… sort of… it really only now applies to normal study and facilities.)
I am going back to my foreword to put in an explanation for this and will stick something in the prologue to!
3. Is anon slang for anonymous?
Yes it is. No one’s actually asked this but I thought that since you don’t read my mind you might get a bit confused as to what an anon is when its referenced. It simply means a student whose fights and matches are not released to the general public. They are distinguished in the rankings by letters rather than numbers.
If there are any more things you want clarifying please don’t hesitate to leave your questions in the comments below!
On to the useful bit!
Like all HCP’s the first year is chock full of students, names, ranks and powers we’re all trying to keep in line. Believe me it’s hard when your characters suddenly decide ‘nope, I’m going to be fourth ranked after all mwhahahaha!’ (Little shits).
Anyway here are the students as they are ranked overall. The number right of those in brackets show where they are ranked in terms of gender, just so it helps if I start switching between the two lists, whilst the bracketed numbers shows the number a student is referred to in the media. Here’s hoping we can keep this all straight! *Nervous laughter*
1 Amelia Edwards (E) – 1 – Powered. Has the ability to hypnotise people with her gaze and implant a hypnotic command in their minds. Side effect – causes the person to forget everything about Amelia. Wears a tech super crafted blindfold to control and contain her powers. Eyes are multi-coloured and glow.
2 Max Jeng (J) – 1 – Speedster who can create energy barriers that allow him to rapidly change direction and altitude.
3 Anya Collins (6) – 2 – creates armour and weapons out of different elements like air, crystal, fire and water. When constructs are damaged, they take a while to repair themselves. Mother is an HCP Professor. Eyes and hair are extremely bright versions of red and green.
4 James and John Gibbs (10 11) – 2 – James transforms into a gigantic two headed hound from hell with impressive physical and mental defences. However by himself his form is mindless and vicious. His twin brother John has no ability except to be able to take control of his brother’s mindless beast form and communicate with him telepathically.
6 Luke Smith (13) – 4 – Luke shifts into a hooded and robed floating being that is able to manipulate and control shadows.
7 Karissa Brashmoore (9) – 3 – Her power allows her to summon multiple butterflies of various colours and properties that include healing, freezing, force and heat. When using her power a lot, a butterfly tattoo appears across her face. Karissa can use the butterflies to see from multiple viewpoints. Her’s is a legacy power and her ancestors were a founder of Brashmoore. Has heterochromatic eyes and hair is various shades of purple (unknown if hair is natural or dyed).
8 Eric Chap (27) – 5 – An advanced mind with medium level telekinetic strength but who cannot directly read his opponent’s thoughts. Instead he claims he can summon forth and communicate with the dead of his targets
9 Tyler Madan (7) – 6 – A high end strongman with high level durability and slightly increased speed. Hair appears to be a dark navy under bright lights.
10 Florence West (15) – 4 – A limited range teleporter who can only travel about 500 feet in any direction. However she has no known mass limit to what she can teleport, does not need to be physically touching an object to affect it if it is within 5 feet of her and can teleport others without teleporting herself.
11 Hae-Lin Chen (20) – 5 – Shifted body is made of a material that looks like glass but is fluid and responsive to Hae-Lin’s will. Substance is also far tougher than glass and appears fairly resistant to heat or cold. When not in a fluid shape, body is ridged meaning it can be broken with enough force. Breaks do not transfer over when Hae-Lin shifts back.
12 Neil Fleming (4) – 7 – Super speed with some increased strength and durability. Primarily a speedster.
13 Megan Jones (25) – 6 – A paper manipulator who can sense any paper around her within a 1 km radius. Can move paper without contact and the paper based objects she does touch can be enhanced/reinforced. Creates her own paper as a hobby.
14 Tom Reese (2) – 8 – A summoner whose can summon four different elemental based creatures currently. His fastest and most powerful summons is yellow and brown electricity based creature that bares a very strong resemblance to a popular cartoon creature
15 “Derek Zammit (21) – 9 – An Australian Super whose power allows him to summon forth beings best described as characters from popular fantasy MMORPGs. He currently summons a Knight he calls Sir Braveheart (Marvin), an Assassin/Rogue known as Evening Shadow (Jim) and a third as yet unknown summons (possible healer). Many psychologists have studied Derek’s unique relationship with his summons due to their intelligence and apparent autonomy. They have concluded that due to Derek’s obsessions with RPGs and late power development, his constructs are more closely linked to his conscious than sub-conscious mind, that they appear to be alternate personalities based off of his obsession. Derek would like the readers to know that he is not obsessed, just truly appreciates the fine art of immersive gaming.
He also appears to be able to summon the abilities and weapons of his characters separately.”
16 Evan Thompson (5) – 10 – Aerokinetic
17 Eli Mason (23) – 11 – Blaster who can throw miniature explosions or shoot a beam from his hands that can disintegrate most inorganic materials. Powers do not appear to affect organic material unless used in explosion form.
18 Samantha French (1) – 7 – Animator with a control range of 1 mile and from within a 10 feet radius can animate any object around her without making physical contact. Though she can control up to 10 different object currently, she is limited in what orders she can give as they have very limited ability to enact complex instructions without clear direction.
19 Kylie Morton (19) – 8 – Barrier creator who can’t create barriers more than 300 feet from her, but can imbue barriers with multiple properties and traits like being air tight.
20 Rob Burke – (12) – 12 – Healer who has moderate self-regeneration for wounds and can turn off his pain receptors and control his brain chemistry. Heals others through contact.
21 Ashley Tinder (4) – 9 – Her power allows her to duplicate anyone she touches. Can then control those duplicates with simple worded commands. Cannot duplicate self and whilst she can create up to 10 copies of her target they are human versions of the original.
22 Clark May (1) – 13 – Shifter whose shifted form is that of an elf with a golden bow and quiver. Elf bears a striking resemblance to an elf from Tolkien lore.
23 Lana Simpson (18) – 10 – Light manipulator who can block, absorb, store and redirect light from any source except solar. Her control of light she releases is limited and most of it is often released as heat making it unsuitable to be used in close range to human opponents. She herself has night vision and an immunity to her own released light.
25 Timothy Clinton (20) – 15 – Unable to lose consciousness and apparently has no need to sleep. Even severe beatings and drugs appear unable to render him unconscious, though he can be numbed. Due to his lack of a need to sleep and an odd number of boys, Tim has his own room.
26 Emma Finn (10) – 11 – An illusionist who can create large scale illusions, but whose attention to detail is affected the greater the area she manipulates. Has complete control over who her illusions effect, but currently can’t affect more than three people at a time. Illusionary object/creatures will fadeout a bit if interacted with.
27 Mia Black (28) – 12 – shifter who can take on multiple bird forms as well as a semi-shifted form with four multi-property wings and bird-like characteristics. Speed in half-state is reduced slightly
29 Hunter Fox (3) – 16 – Tech Super whose specialty is in genetics. He breeds and controls hybrid beasts that he uses to fight for him
30 Clara Bill (22) – 14 – Super with vastly increased durability and heightened sense. Strength is also increased to that of a low end strongman.
33 Matthew Newton (8) – 18
42 Bruce Golding (19) – 22 – Has the power to make rapid probability calculations that allow him to essentially predict future events with enough data. He tends to get forgotten by the Author, but we’re working on it!
45 Zoe Taylor (28) – 23 – Weak telekinetic whose range to affect objects goes as far as she can see. Her telepathy is likewise weak and only vague surface thoughts can be glimpsed, however she can accurately tell whenever someone lies to her, whether what they say is fact or belief (e.g. to her a Christian’s belief about God would register as the truth (if truly devout) but also as a truthful belief). She can also read how much doubt there is regarding a statement.
47 Ash Lloyd (16) – 24 – Has a power which changes at midnight each day. They appear to rotate on a seven day basis. Current known powers include shape shifting into mist (Monday), basic elemental manipulation (Friday) and the creation of nearly impenetrable barriers of varying size (Saturday).
48 Bethany Parks (2) – 24 – Registered power includes increased physical abilities when summoned creature is present. This summoned creature can change shape but most often appears as a black cat with white markings. Has red eyes which match those of her summoned creature.
Hope this helps!
