B

From X-Men: rEvolution
A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.
Introduction

xxxxxIgnore the claws and mouthful of sharp teeth. Just remember, they are more scared of you than you are of them.

Description

xxxxxIt is impossible to mistake this individual for anything but a mutant. There's a rather amphibious look to this teenager, from webbed fingers to the slitted gills that line the sides of the neck and ripple down the sides of the throat. The teen sports skin a deep blue, with a tendency to gleam and prone to shifting lighter or darker in shade at times.

Small and sleekly compact, diminutive height -- standing an inch or two shy of five feet -- and slender build lends a frail overall appearance. Pixieish features only add to that impression -- face drawn in androgynous lines of elfin delicacy, narrow features dominated by overlarge solid-black eyes that are set far too deep above high cheekbones; between lack of eyebrows or lashes, though, and the black eyes and slightly flattened nose and the outlined ridges that take the place of normal ears on his head, there's an uncanny-valley kind of surreality to the youth's facial compositon. The enormous black eyes bear a second clear set of lids that close sideways beneath the regular pair. In lieu of regular hair a spiky mess of black, harder and pokier than normal human hair, crowns the top of the odd water-demon head.

In build otherwise, the teenager is streamlined-sleek, whipcord-lean limbs that end in flat webbed hands and feet. In telling contrast to the delicacy of build, webbed fingers and webbed toes both end in dagger-sharp claws, black and pointed and small -- at least when fully retracted. The teen's smile proves just as telling, rows of razor-sharp shark-teeth gleaming white behind the curve of blue lips. Despite the fragility of appearance, there is a strength belied in movement, sure and powerful with an animal sort of grace.

Reputation

xxxxxAt Xavier's, was known to be helpful, very friendly, and extremely studious. Often got flak when people mistook hir for Shane. Which was often. In the world outside Xavier's, has a very small amount of fame from inventing hoverboards; owns hir own ROBOTICS toy company (Mako Inc). Can be found in YouTube videos very shyly demonstrating the hoverboards with Tony Hawk. Is clearly a giant fankid.

History

xxxxxBorn in rural Montana, the younger child (by a whopping four minutes!) of a couple recently immigrated from Vietnam. A human couple, who were not expecting their eagerly-awaited firstborn twins to be quite so -- well, blue. It wasn't a particularly cheerful home life, parents never really viewing their sharpclawed sharkteeth twins as anything but monsters; they leapt on the first opportunity to rid themselves of the pair.

Things aren't always terrible, though. After a long stint spent largely in cages, the twins were adopted by a young couple in New York, together with an also-adopted younger brother. The family has been through kind of a lot of ups and downs but for all the twists and turns of mutant lift, it's a loving happy home. Went to Xavier's, took as many classes as the school would let hir cram in in between a job at Stark Industries. Graduated as the valedictorian of hir class and upset the teachers greatly when, after being their model student the whole time ze was at school, hir graduation speech all but encouraged hir classmates to give the middle finger to respectability politics and join the Brotherhood instead.

Following Xavier's B went off to MIT, aided by a glowing recommendation from Tony Stark himself that maybe helped the admissions board look past the blue skin and claws. That didn't make hir time at school easy, though; hir classmates and teachers alike were uncomfortable to hostile with the small sharky trans girl. Though she excelled academically, emotionally it's been another question entirely, and after three grueling years she made the tough decision to drop out and focus on work.

Now returned to New York, ze is working as a researcher at Stark Industries, leading an AI and Robotics team, and have recently started their own tiny startup company on the side -- Mako Inc, a small robotics company. At the moment its flagship product, launched at the very end of 2014 (just in time to fulfill Back to the Future's predictions!) is a hoverboard, marketed as a toy and quite popular with the skater crowd.

Powers

xxxxxBlue. That is likely the first thing anyone notices about B. Their mutation leaves them very noticeably mutanty, adapting their physiology for life in the water. Their fingers and toes are webbed (and rather sharp-clawed), they sport a small pair of gills on the sides of their neck and a larger pair down their sides, their clear inner eyelids are helpful for protecting their eyes while swimming. Their smile is somewhat disconcertingly toothy.
