Concept: Chaotic nihilist and orderly creator
Appearance: Joesph's appearance is as strange as his philosophy. His hair has been dyed black on his left side and white on his right. The hair on his left is perfectly straight and neat while the white hair is spiked using gel. The changes between the two are not gradual. It is if he used a straightedge. His eyes have been colored, just like his hair. Both have been changed into a half of the 'yin-yang' symbol. He wears a neat black suit with tattered elbows and knees. Despite the tears, he still wears a black tie and has a white handkerchief in his pocket. He keeps sunglasses tucked in next to the handkerchief. When he activates his abilities, he wears those sunglasses which have been modified to darken in response to bright light, including flashbangs and the such.
Trait 5: Nothing is Forever
From his point of view, everything has its time. Empires fall, ideas are forgotten, people die. It has to happen or the world falls apart. However, at the same time, nothing should end before its time. That means you should avoid destruction as much as possible. Things will fall when it is time. Joseph is sometimes very fickle with this when deciding when it is time but he holds to the general idea. In his mind, Cytek has been around long enough.
Trait 4: Absolute Dissolution and Perfect Creation
When Joseph sees something that obstructs him, he may use this power. Just by touching something, he 'infects' it with the element of destruction. It begins to fall apart, by different means. Living things rot, metal rusts, computers suddenly develop deadly bugs in the code, and food becomes toxic. He does not use this to kill, he uses this to destroy, a different way of thinking. There can be no malice in his actions. When he uses this ability, his eyes turn black with white pupils and to activate it, he must clasp his hands but reversed, as if praying but doing it wrong.
When Joseph sees a void that needs to be filled with something, he creates the perfect item, literally. Whenever he uses this ability, the item could only be described as perfect. If it is a sword, it will be unbelievably sharp, absolutely balanced, comfortable to hold, and simple to wield. Unfortunately, it will never be a sword. This ability can only be used to create an item that is to be used to create, not to destroy. When he uses this ability, both of his eyes turn white with black pupils. When he uses this ability, he holds both hands out, palms showing, and moves his fingers as if manipulating the mysterious forces he uses.
Trait 3: Runner
Despite his lack of constitution, Joseph can book it when he needs to. He can't run for very long but he can run fast for those 10 seconds. He is also pretty agile when he needs to be.
Trait 1: Total Weakling
Joseph is not a person who you would want in any kind of physical contest. His studies and general lack of interest has left him with a poor constitution and very little strength. However, it has not affected his agility.
Extra Trait: To be decided
Personality: Joseph usually has no self-control. He'll see something that is unneeded and wander over to take it apart or notice something that needs to exist and create it right then and there. He can keep his thought train from derailing but it takes something of great importance. Fortunately, considering his situation, he is surrounded by things of great importance. What he really likes seeing is things distinguishing and things forming out of little. It is the flow of the universe, after all, and he is just doing his part to speed the whole process up. This world they are living in has existed for too long and the world outside has been decayed for too long. They both need to continue in the cycle and Joseph is going to make sure that happen. One of his personal quotes is "If you are going to do something, do it in a way that will shock the world. You are a cog but turn in a big way!"
Background: Joseph grew up in the Underground with his parents and two sisters. He despised everything about that: his parents for being forced down there, the government for forcing people into such terrible conditions, the people for not doing anything about it, the world for being so cruel. Eventually, however, as he watched people living, being born, and dying in that world, he realized that the world is not to be hated. It is to be changed. He could have stayed and used his abilities to help the Underground but he understood that was not the right thing to do. The Underground was simply a small part of the world, a world that was dying. And the world he was in was letting the rest of it die. Only by adding the right amount of chaos and order in the right was the world going to be able to live again. Destruction is simply a side of creation. The world died to leave them in this one. This one was created because of death. Now it was time for things to change again. Joseph set out to find the Blue Sky and help them. Maybe they wouldn't agree with his reasons but they would need his help.
When his power first manifested, it did so in a big way. One day, his sister and him were assaulted by a man with a simple long piece of metal. When he attacked Joseph, the bar simply rusted away. Oh, and the man's hand died. Howling in pain, he ran away, leaving Joseph in shock. Later on, when taking care of his sick mother, he found he had the ability to restore as well. He managed to materialize a pill that caused her to cough up the fibers that had begun to take root in her lungs. With the power of creation and destruction in his hands, Joseph thought for a long while. He looked at the world around him and decided that it needed to change. First would come the destruction, then the creation. That was how it was going to be and no one was going to stop him.
