Biography
Even before her birth, Ava shared an inseparable bond with her twin brother, Lucas. The two grew side by side in their mother’s womb until the early hours of June 5th where, surrounded by the bustling activity of one of Topeka’s busiest hospitals, Lucas emerged from his mother’s womb. Ava appeared shortly afterward as the second born child of James and Marie Rice. A few days later, the pair would arrive at their new home in Topeka where they would live for the next 17 years.

As the twin babies grew into toddlers, Ava always sought to outperform her brother and often turned ordinary events into competitions. Shared birthday parties developed into races to see which set of candles could be extinguished first, arcades had their highscore lists labelled with either AVA or LUC, and both Lucas and his sister bruised their knees several times by attempting to removed the training wheels from their bikes first. Despite this rivalry, however, the twins supported each other in nearly everything. If Lucas ever needed another coin at the arcade, Ava would willingly hand him one of hers, and if Ava had scraped her knee after falling off her bicycle, Lucas would quickly help her onto her feet.

The twins formed a powerful friendship over their competitions which guided them through middle and high schools. Lucas, who often found himself at odds with classmates, relied on Ava to calm his down while Ava, the more passive of the two, relied on Lucas to help her deal with issues directly. Few of their high school classmates were surprised when the twins both decided to attend Empire University in Empire City toward the end of their senior years. Lucas would attend with a scholarship to study electrical engineering while Ava would pursue a degree in anthropology.

Toward the end of their freshman years, however, Lucas and Ava’s lives changed dramatically as the Ray Sphere detonated in the Historic District of Empire City. Waking up at the outer rim of the massive crater left by the detonation, Ava struggled to find her way through the smoke to her brother’s side.. The two managed, however, to limp toward the slums of the Warren where the hoped to find medical help at Empire City’s only hospital.
A week later, the city had collapsed into lawlessness and a quarantine locked Lucas and Ava inside the chaos of Empire City. The two managed to survive, however, by leaning on each other’s support. Lucas handled finding and protecting a small apartment from riots and thieves while Ava found food and learned the skills necessary to survive under the city’s new social order. The two would gather in the apartment each night to celebrate a successful day with a foraged feast or, on days with a scarcity of food, to regroup and develop new strategies. Around this time, both Lucas and Ava began to discover the powers they received from the Ray Sphere’s blast and use them in their day-to-day lives. Lucas honed his wind manipulation skills to better handle the rioters and gang members which approached the twins’ home each day while Ava relied on her fog-like powers to disappear from tricky situations or intimidate anyone who threatened her.

As time went on, the two began to shift their attention away from merely surviving to plotting an escape from the city. The gang members which Lucas drove away from the twins’ apartment each day often returned with an extra partner or two, and Lucas started to fear the day when a gang would arrive with more men than he could overcome. Ava, as well, found her fog powers less effective at scaring away local threats and competition as time went on. The two, however, witnessed the failed attempts to escape the quarantine by Empire City’s disgruntled citizens and realized their plans to escape would most likely end with bullets ripping through their bodies. Instead, the twins abandoned their small apartment, swam to the Neon District, and looted an electronics store. Then, finding the top floor of a skyscraper abandoned, the twins formed the floor into their new living space. Lucas, with his interest in electronics, rigged a homemade security alert system to the floor beneath the twins as well as the door to the building’s roof. After spending several nights in the building, the twins grew comfortable with the safety the height of the skyscraper presented and focused on developing and understanding their new powers.


Roleplay Sample
The door intrigued Ava. Its mahogany build brought a strange elegance to the room which felt out of place. Elegance had no more reason to exist in this room; its contents laid strewn across the floor and any item of value had disappeared long before Ava had arrived, when the first foragers had sifted their way through the abandoned building. Everything in the room had been touched, evaluated, and deemed worthless--everything except the door with its mahogany build and silver knob. It had escaped the forager’s scrutiny, either through their carelessness or laziness, and it stood undesecrated in the wall as the only thing which had not changed since the explosion. Ava wanted to open it.

Checking the knob, she found the door solidly locked, but that meant little in Empire City anymore. Sliding her backpack off her shoulders and too the floor, Ava rummaged through her supplies until she felt her fingers brush against the cool metal of her lockpicks. Setting the torsion wrench into the door’s lock, Ava quickly tapped through the inside of the doorknob with a pin and searched for the mechanism’s levers. Several seconds later, the last lever had slid into place, and Ava slowly turned the knob and opened the door.
