Leo Michael Valeris
tell me reality is better than MY dreams.
Leo is around 5 ft 4 inches, with shoulder length blonde hair. Their frame is lithe and soft, lacking any form of muscular definition. They have boney brown eyes that become almost yellow in direct sunlight, though their pale alabaster skin shows that you wont find them outside super often. Leo is confident though, and their style of dress shows it. You will often see a wide variety of outfits when accompanying Leo, as they love trying to look stylish to their peers.
Gifted: Technopath: able to control technology innately. This includes things such as controlling robots, cameras, cell phones, etc. This does not include making technology float or defy the laws of physics, but instead its comparable to the flow of information. An example of a more complex application may be to hide oneself from the view of nearby cameras, or to hack a database and the information goes directly to your brain. You can sense nearby technology, and flex this magical muscle to influence it.
Some of the flaws of this ability are that it is useless if there is no technology around. It is also disrupted if you were in a faraday cage, or something similar that blocks your ability to sense the technology you wished to control. The more complicated the technology, the more effort it takes to override its intended purpose. Controlling a cellphone is easy, but hacking a well defended database is harder and takes more time. You are also susceptible to EMP style effects that would disrupt technology, as it assaults your senses like a flashbang.
Pocket Dimension: Leo is able to create the foundation of a pocket dimension, which requires a minor understanding of spacial manipulation. Through practice and time, Leo has learned to incorporate their technopathy into this ability. From this, Leo created a Pseudo-virtual Pocket Dimension. Leo is able to create a dimensional doorway/portal into this pocket dimension, allowing both them and others to enter it. This virtual pocket dimension(VPD for short) changes each time it is created, its inner appearance matches the desire of Leo as they create it. Once a doorway has been created into the VPD, the VPD cannot change until the doorway is removed.(different than the door being closed) The doorway can be closed, which will render it invisible and intangible in the real world. From the inside, the door is always visible and can be opened by anyone within the pocket dimension.
Within the pocket dimension, its terrain and structure can be anything Leo is capable of imagining. The VPD is incapable of directly harming someone within it, so is unable to be filled with traps. While the dimension is incapable of hurting someone, this does not apply to other people within the dimension. Within the VPD, Leo is considered the absolute authority to these NPCs, but other people are capable of asking for assistance in whatever they need while within.
Another aspect of digitization is that the virtual interactions within can affect the body in real ways. Eat the virtual food, and you will receive real nutrition. Get hit by a virtual sword in a VPD arena match, and you become wounded as well. Leo is no exception to this.
As a part of the technopathy that is interwoven into this dimension, some rules of reality followed digitization. This VPD is populated by digital servants that are capable of anything a normal person is capable of. These NPCs are bound to this pocket dimension, and the rules within. As such they are unable to directly harm another person.
The weaknesses of this ability, is that the doorway into the VPD is stationary as long as it exists. Even if the door is closed, and thus inaccessible from the outside, the occupants of the VPD will always leave at the same location they entered at. The VPD cannot be changed while it is in use, or if the door exists. If Leo were to remove/destroy the current door, and occupants would be evicted to the safest nearby space starting from where the door was. Aside from removing the door, there is no way to forcibly evict someone from the VPD aside from pushing them outside the open door.
Intuitive Aptitude: You are able to quickly learn and discern the nature of things. An example of this may be listening to a clock tick, and being able to tell which part of the clock is broken. This process is quick, and requires significantly less time and inspection to reach an accurate understanding of what your studying.
The weakness to this, is that it doesn't help you solve the problem. It does not show or tell you what you need to do, but simply identifies what it is your interacting with. This does not work in all instances, and requires a rudimentary understanding of what you are trying to perceive.
Leo was born gifted, which was quite the struggle for their parents. Technology short circuited and failed in mysterious ways during their birth, each infantile cry causing computers to go on the fritz. From Leo's first breath they were connected to the world in a way no-one else was. While normal babies simply get a slap on the butt and a cleaning, Leo was being bombarded by texts and cellphone calls. The electronic buzz of non-stop information was always filtering into their head, causing them distress in a way no baby could cope with.
After a while though, the crying stopped. Leo's parents thought the cries would never stop, the guilt of their child's anguish haunted them. Multiple days pass where the child seemed inconsolable, but the sudden stop brought them relief. It was seemingly short lived though, as when they checked upon the infant it was oddly calm. Little Leo would almost never look them in the eye, intentionally seeming to see beyond them in a way that made them feel uncomfortable.
By the time Leo was able to be brought home, things had taken a dramatic turn. Technology around the house began to act weirdly, the thermostat changing without anyone touching it. The TV changing channels and turning on and off. Leo's parents eventually understood their child was gifted, and went about doing their best to raise them.
After Leo's first cries, they never cried again. By the time they were to enter kindergarten, Leo was already fully literate and well versed on higher level mathematics. When questioned about why they knew so much, especially about math, Leo's only response was, "It simply makes sense." Once Leo learned more and more, their maturity quickly outpaced their peers. When kids Leo's age were just entering middle school, they were entering high school.
This led to them being picked on, yet they never seemed bothered. Despite the older high school kids picking on them, Leo did not get down on their thoughts. Instead, Leo got even. Using a bit of their ability to control technology, they were able to affect the grades of those who bullied them. During this period, Leo also found some kinship in the other bullied kids, and was suspended from school once for causing another students phone to explode in their pocket.
Eventually, Leo matured more, and graduated high school with flawless grades. After that, Leo spent a few years spending time with their family and a few friends. It wasn't until Leo became older that they felt the urge to once again move forward within society. The loneliness had finally gotten to them. That leads us up to now, where Leo is a third year Junior at university at the ripe old age of 17. If Leo desired to graduate early, it would be easy, but instead Leo is aiming to simply experience a bit of a normal life. At least as normal as a gifted's life can get.
Leo is a somewhat relaxed and inquisitive person, whose main goal is to have fun and learn more about the world.
