First time playing an RP online, through text, so if I make any mistakes, sorry and I'll try to correct/learn from it. So far, I've read the first post, and skimmed through the rest of the forum(skimmed through the other players/characters too).
Name: Richard Stein Jr. (Ricky)
Side Note- He's constantly making up alter egos, never able to find the one that just fits.
Quote: "Look, I'm trying to work with what I got." "Crazy? Probably, but in a different reality it'd be crazy not to."
As a child growing up, Ricky was always the optimist. He always wanted to look at the bright side of things, and was always cracking jokes. Class clown to amateur comedian, his family never approved of his personality. Only barely able to stay on his feet, economically. He eventually had a loving wife and 2 kids, one boy, one girl. He started a few part times to support his family. He tried to play the comedian and optimist for as long as he could.
As time past his wife left him, taking custody of both their children. His family refused to help him, telling him he made his choices. He was walking home, on an awful stormy night when he got mugged and KO'd. He wakes up and for the first time in his life he thought there's no way it can get any worse. And what? God takes a crack at him and decides to end reality. It wasn't long before he realized everyone he loved was gone. Then he cracked, now he's his old comedic self.
Personality: Ricky feels that God has played a very well thought out joke on him. Making him go through this life, and when he questioned how low things could go, the world ends. At this point his old optimistic self returns to him, thinking now he has nowhere to go but up. No matter how serious a situation is, he'll try and make others laugh. He doesn't care for boundaries, and his humor gets dark quite often. He doesn't care for others opinions as long as he gets them to smile, you got to be able to take a joke if you ever want to be with this guy for more than 5 minutes. Ofc, he may just be hiding his darkest side.
After hearing the Voice spoke to him, he assumed it was another one of God's tricks, a very charismatic one at that. He believe that the new reality just needs enough understanding so everyone can laugh. He doesn't care if he's the one that makes it, so long as whoever does is willing to add flavor to it. If he were to end up making the new reality, he's definitely going to be surrounded by the finest women and men imaginable, did I mention he is very open minded? In short, he believes God is messing with him, so he wants to mess with the people in the new Universe, but unlike the current, he makes sure they are 100% aware that he's doing this.
Powers: Hat Trick
He can basically change anything in reality, but the effects are temporary and don't always go the way he wants; can affect humans and can affect things at a range, the closer it is the better he can focus. Example: He may try to change a car to a gold bicycle. His powers would affect the care a random one of four ways. Success, which is what he goes for. He turns the car into gold, not bad. He turns the car into a normal bicycle, still effective. He turns the car into a monkey, doesn't always go this terribly off from his intentions, but he's tries to work with it. He can't give or take life, if he tries and turns an inanimate object to something living, it would just be the carcass; if he were to try and change a living thing, he can only turn it into another living creature. Not fully understanding the powers, there are a few consistencies. For the majority of the things he attempts to change, it's only temporary, usually lasting somewhere between 5 seconds to 5 days. He can change objects, but he has no control of it and can't change something he has already changed, at least not for a few days; nor can he change something back to its original form when he wills it. His power being unreliable, he attempts to use his wits to survive. He's heard of amazing powers others have, and thinks his power is another way God is messing with him, but he's good at improvising. Intelligent as he is, he also seems very lucky, he thinks this is also because God ain't done playing with him.
"Want to be friends? I'll make you co-god in the new Universe. Or you could make me co-god, I don't see why there has to be one."
If that didn't get at least a smile on your face, we're going to have a long time.
He basically looks like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, except without the accessories, and more clean cut. His hair is jet black. He is 5'10''. He's also slimmer and agile.
I think I got everything down. I'm basically going for the annoying guy that's too useful to kill, and you can't help but love him in some strange 'my reality is being altered' kind of way.
