Talk to Me

xxxxxShy but friendly, Doug is a very earnest young man, devoting as much dedication to his friends and family as he does to whatever computer project has his attention. Cheerful and optimistic with a willingness to believe the best about people, he can still be resentful when his ability to perform on a level with his peers is called into question. Nevertheless, he is fiercely determined and loyal to those he calls friends. Those who he calls enemies had better hope they have good firewalls


xxxxxDouglas Aaron Ramsey is the only child of Phillip Ramsey, a government contractor, and his wife Sheila. For the first ten years of Doug's life, the Ramseys moved from town to town to keep up with Phillip's work load. Because of this, Doug became a study in contradiction: he was shy, being the perpetual New Kid, but he made up for it by being extra friendly to those who made the effort to be his friend. Not that there were many. As a result, Doug spent a lot of time playing video games by himself.

When Doug was eleven, the family moved to New York, where his father was beginning a new job. It was around this time that Doug found that he had a gift with computers. He could get a computer to do just about anything, given a little time. Even machines that he'd never seen before seemed to respond to him. He began to spend more and more time in cyberspace, researching video games and beginning to start to create games of his own. So what, if the harder the computer system, the more his head hurt? What was a couple of migraines compared to being the next Miyamoto?

A couple of years passed, and Doug's performance in other academic areas began to come up, too. English and Math soared, and he walked through his Spanish classes all four years. With a little hard work in the areas that didn't see such a rise, he managed to earn his way on the honor roll, and graduated from high school in the Salutatorian position. Again, so what if it came with migraines and the scorn of most of his classmates? A little accusation of 'brown noser' didn't sting so much when you're holding a full scholarship in your hand.

Now that he's starting his first year of college, he's started to notice that he's beginning to understand other languages. Whether this is aptitude or related to his regular migraines is something he's yet to determine.


xxxxxDoug is a polyglot and a mild technopath. His powers allow him to understand and communicate in any language, including computer code. The more complex the code or language, the longer Doug needs exposure to it in order to translate it. For example: simple ASCII coding would take Doug a couple of seconds to parse, whereas a complex binary string might take him up to an hour. The more he can concentrate on said language, the more clear his ability to communicate in it. If he /studies/ the language, he can retain it. Otherwise, as soon as he stops speaking/using it, it will fade within a short time, usually within an hour. Unfortunately, as his mutant power is still emerging and developing, he also suffers serious migraines at times, usually when he's been working with something truly complex. These migraines range from mild pressure to raging torments that drive him to his bed. In the future, perhaps his gift will come without the heavy toll.
