Scott

From X-Men: rEvolution
Jump to navigationJump to search
Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.

Introduction

xxxxxJust a guy from Alaska with exploding eyes.

Description

xxxxxScott is reaching middle age with more grace than his omnipresent sunglasses and multiple motorcycles would suggest – he is tall and trim, standing just over six feet, with lean muscles and broad shoulders. He dresses mostly in unassuming workwear, with sturdy materials and good boots, and keeps himself clean-shaven and neat – well, as neat as any shop teacher can hope for. Though he's somewhat handsome, his straight nose and square jaw and full head of hair draw somewhat less attention than his ruby-tinted sunglasses or visor or, on occasion, the ruby-tinted beam of kinetic force that emanates from it.

Reputation

xxxxxOne of Xavier's first students. Somewhat notorious around both the school and the X-Men for the No-Fun-Allowed vibe he brings to every party; only slightly less notorious for problem-solving and protocol-setting. In some kind of situationship with the school's academic dean, Jean Grey, that everybody loves to speculate on but nobody quite understands, maybe not even Scott.

History

xxxxxNo, really, he's an orphan.

Powers

xxxxxScott can punch you with his eyes. Actually, Scott is a walking, talking portal into an alternate dimension consisting only of preternatural kinetic force, and his eyes are the crack in the dam. He tries not to think about the mechanics; it's easier to just say he can punch you with his eyes.

Skills

xxxxxCan figure out how to drive or fly pretty much any vehicle you put him in (though he universally brakes too fast.) Very handy with vehicle maintenance and repairs. Very mechanically inclined – good at welding and machining, good eye for troubleshooting engines and other machines, working knowledge of electrical, pneumatic, and HVAC systems. Close quarters combat, firearms, and field first aid; keeps up to date on certifications and registrations and so on, nags everyone else to do so too. Much better at navigating situations with his eyes closed than the average sighted person. Could probably keep himself alive for a good long time if he were ever stranded in the wilderness. Shoots a mean game of pool.


Connections

Commander

  • Xavier, Charles "Professor X": O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible; and hence we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands.

Soldiers

  • Ferguson, Clarice "Blink": Rapidity is the essence of war: take advantage of the enemy's unreadiness, make your way by unexpected routes, and attack unguarded spots.
  • Grey, Jean "Marvel Girl": The direct and the indirect lead on to each other in turn. It is like moving in a circle--you never come to an end. Who can exhaust the possibilities of their combination?
  • Holland, Jax: All men can see the tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.
  • Holland, Shane: Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions.
  • McCoy, Hank "Beast": In respect of military method, we have, firstly, Measurement; secondly, Estimation of quantity; thirdly, Calculation; fourthly, Balancing of chances; fifthly, Victory.
  • Pryde, Kitty "Shadowcat": Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy.
  • Salinas, Joshua: Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.
  • Tessier, Matt: Disciplined and calm, to await the appearance of disorder and hubbub amongst the enemy:--this is the art of retaining self-possession.

Allies

  • Allred, DJ: Energy may be likened to the bending of a crossbow; decision, to the releasing of a trigger.
  • Black, Ryan: The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.
  • Dane, Lorna "Polaris": Walk in the path defined by rule, and accommodate yourself to the enemy until you can fight a decisive battle.
  • Hive: Amid the turmoil and tumult of battle, there may be seeming disorder and yet no real disorder at all; amid confusion and chaos, your array may be without head or tail, yet it will be proof against defeat.
  • Holland, Spencer: Ponder and deliberate before you make a move.
  • Johnson, Skye: If the enemy leaves a door open, you must rush in.
  • Māhoe, Nanami
  • Mukhopadhyay, Maya: Be subtle! be subtle! and use your spies for every kind of business.
  • Rogers, Steve "Captain America": What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.
  • Sun, Harm

It's Complicated

  • Brown, Heather: Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your compactness that of the forest.
  • Ion: Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.
  • Lehnsherr, Erik "Magneto": A whole army may be robbed of its spirit; a commander-in-chief may be robbed of his presence of mind.

Trivia
  • Absolutely cannot cook, like, literally nothing. Perhaps this is unsurprising given that he's spent his entire adulthood in a mansion that provides him with every meal, but Scott could screw up a fried egg. If he needs to feed himself quick it'll have to come out of a can or a cereal box -- but more often than not he just eats the leftovers in the fridge that look closest to expiry. He just thinks someone should.
  • He has both Urban Dictionary and KnowYourMeme.com bookmarked on his phone, his laptop, and his office desk computer. It doesn't help.

(1) The Moral Law - Having trouble at Xavier's? Need counselling, conflict resolution, extracurricular help, or anything else? Scott probably has a form for that. Scott probably has forms for that in triplicate.
(2) Heaven - Strangely for a guy who's fallen out of so many planes, Scott loves flying, and acts as unofficial chauffeur/pilot for both Xavier's and the X-Men. If you need flying anywhere, he's your man.
(3) Earth - Less strangely, Scott loves cars and bikes, though he's far more likely to show you how to tune up an engine or change a tire than to take you for a spin.
(4) The Commander - As the X-Men's official team leader and Xavier's unofficial mouthpiece, most major decisions have to go through Scott -- for better or for worse. Many people feel some kind of way about this.
(5) Method and discipline - Scott is usually down for a little sparring, training, honing his skills, running drills, preparing for the worst, etc.
