19 (a year older, now)
Formerly an Inani, now an Adduco. One of the Resistance leaders.
Used to possess the powers of hypnosis and mind reading, however she can now do little, if any, of either. She used to merely be able to make any piece of machinery work, despite not normally know anything about the technology behind it, but she can now animate metal and flawlessly take control over machinery, able to bend and control it by mere touch. She can also utilise the electric currents running through certain kinds of technology to shoot bolts of sheer electricity.
Tai always used to keep up a cool facade - not unfriendly but not welcoming. She had been a partial Other - warmer than most Inanis, showing more emotions, but not different to the extent she could have been considered a full-blown Other. She was unnervingly calm in the worst of situations, but tended to be slightly reckless. She was unafraid of death, which was probably one of her most important assets. While she might not have been loving or kind towards you if you were a friend she would protect you 'till the end - too bad her loyalty was often misplaced. On occasion she was just happy-go-lucky to the point it wasn't even funny though. It depended, really. After CF Part I she mellowed out a bit, and was slightly more welcoming.
Now, after CFII, the changes have become even more obvious. Her recklessness now shines through, pushed by an almost worrying amount of sheer energy. She has dropped the emotionless facade, and is now probably one of the most emotive people you could hope to meet. She is friendly and extroverted, but holds incredibly steadfast grudges. While it is hard to get her to remain serious for more than a few minutes at a time it can happen - and when it does it is almost scary how calm she is. Aside from those rare occasions, though, Tai is always jovial and bright, but quick to react. She is melodramatic and makes assumptions far too easily, and tends to act on these presumptions more than actual facts.
Black hair, sunken eyes, bags. Like most people in Alveus she's a mess. Her hair is short, choppy. Shoulder-length, usually matted with dirt. She appears to never blink, her grey eyes always wide, unmoving. She wears a casual get-up; jeans, a t-shirt and trainers, but her belt is where it's at. Her belt is full of weapons. Grenades, knives, daggers, pistols - it's insane what she can cram in there. Not a good idea to try to fight her unarmed. She also wears a pair of goggles round her neck, for when she has to traverse the more sandy areas and doesn't want said sand in her eyes. Or, at least, this was how she used to look.
Now Tai is a fair sight cleaner, and with bright peacock blue hair. Oh the wonders of dyeing. She also insists on wearing bright blue contacts, making her eyes seem a fair bit larger than they ever used to. She is still pale, and slightly lanky looking, but the bags that used to be a constant reminder of the long nights spent forming plans for the resistance have seemingly disappeared. She still wears jeans and a t-shirt, sure, but they're a lot more hygienic and a lot cleaner than they used to be. Her belt hasn't changed either, still full to the brim with weaponry and various fire-arms, but now she literally cannot leave her house without her skateboard. Her magical flying skateboard (that's not actually magical - more like advanced Adduco tech). And her goggles, still. Just in case.
She was fine, when the war began. Sure her parents were dead but she was just fine, looking after her younger sister. Until a group of raiders showed up, and in a brutal fight massacared the three year old girl and left her, a 17 year old girl with no powers, to fend for herself, having escaped as they destroyed everything, having already done away with her sister. Her thirst for revenge is horrific.
She joined the Resistance the instant they allowed her in, rising through the ranks at a worrying speed. She headed various publicity stunts, along with more...dangerous displays of rebellion. Currently she's working alongside Gary, Jakku, Kiba, James and whoever else they've picked up along the way. Well, sort of; right now shes refusing to speak to them, but hey, what can you do?
Pistol mastery, speed, reconnaisance. Stealthy, brilliant with technology.
9 Shades of Red - Hedley
Recon/Scout/Spy for the rebels. Part-time merchant, if she finds any loot on her missions.
Feelings about the War;
She hates it, so much. It killed her baby sister, after all. She wants to destroy the Devia most of all, though.
Twin daggers, Pistol [advanced model - devised by an Adduco -- even she doesn't know all of it's special features] and whatever's on her belt at the time.
Reckless, trusts too easily, stubborn, prejudiced. Sometimes using her powers can make her dizzy or ill, and utilising electric currents can sometimes backfire on her.
