Ryan

From X-Men: rEvolution
Throw all your hell towards the heavens
Introduction

xxxxx Brash and bold and loud, Ryan has been disappeared from the world once and doesn't plan to let it happen again. He wears his notoriety like armor, a cheerfully in-your-face shield that -- doesn't, really, let him flip off the government and yell about mutant rights with impunity. But no matter how many times they throw him in jail, now, at least, they're stopping shy of outright killing him. He'll take that as a win.

Description

xxxxxTall and wiry-toned, Ryan sports grey-green eyes and a messy crop of dark hair around his deep tan face. His features are clean-cut, a strong jaw, high cheekbones, a quick and warm smile, though he breaks up his boy-next-door look with a sprinkling of piercings through ears and lip and eyebrow and a few brightly noticeable tattoos -- a weaving of branches and leaves from a ginkgo plant sleeving his right arm to the elbow, an outline of the chemical structure of adrenaline by his right wrist, a treble clef by his left.

Reputation

xxxxxAnyone who doesn't live under a rock has probably at the very least heard Ryan's name, and those even passingly in tune with pop culture are likely to recognize him when they see him. A well-established star in the music world, his debut album was met with wild critical acclaim and topped the charts since its release; his shows sell out routinely, and he is the only second artist in history to win all the general field Grammys in a single night -- following which he outed himself as a mutant on stage in his acceptance speech.

He cheerfully and deliberately cultivates his rebel image; brashly outspoken about leftist issues, once in the news for missing a show due to spending the night in jail after punching a neonazi in the face at a Black Lives Matter protest (the footage has been turned into a common reaction gif). The paparazzi likes to call him a bad boy; he says he's just passionate.

History

xxxxxRyan's life history changes blithely with the telling if it; he makes up stories both plausible and farfetched to anyone who asks much about his life. What is widely and publicly known is that he's the son of a Baptist preacher from Down South, he got his start in folk music before hitting it big.

Powers

xxxxxEmpathic audiokinesis. Generates and manipulates sound, manipulates people through sound.

Skills

xxxxxSinging, playing violin/guitar/keyboard, making a spectacle of himself, snark.

Notorious - Ryan isn't just famous for a mutant, he's really famous. His music and media presence has been such that most people who follow pop culture at ALL will almost certainly recognize him, and even people who don't are likely to be familiar with some of his songs."
Wild Child - Sex, drugs, rock and roll? Ryan is not above living down to some stereotypes... a lot. If you want the hookups for all the best parties or are into a wild night out, you might well run into him.
Role Model - For better or worse, often has young queer kids or Latinx kids or mutant kids excited that One Of Theirs has made it big. Very protective and solicitous of The Youth, though his advice is prooobably to be taken with a heap of salt.
