PLAYER INTERVIEW -
What is your character’s super power?
Quicksilver is capable of running faster than the speed of sound (770 miles per hour). He had sufficient energy reserves that enabled him to run at this average speed for 12 hours before reducing his speed to replenish his body's store of energy.
Quicksilver’s body is adapted towards the rigors of high-speed running.
His cardiovascular and respiratory systems are accelerated.
The chemical processes of Quicksilver's musculature are so highly enhanced that his body does not generate muscular toxins.
His joints are smoother and lubricated more efficiently than those of a normal human being.
His tendons have the tensile strength of spring steel.
His bones are more durable than calcium to withstand the shocks of his feet touching the ground at speed.
His eyes are more viscous than normal, thus prevent his eyes from drying out due to high winds.
Quicksilver's reaction time is several times faster than a normal human's and the speed at which his brain processes information is heightened to a level equal to his bodily speed, enabling him to perceive his surroundings while traveling at high velocities.
What are the drawbacks or limitations to the power? Or what other powers may affect it?
WIth his increased reaction time and super speed, Pietro is capable of perceiving the world in a sort of “slow-motion.” The primary drawback of this is social, since the reactions of others seem sluggish to him, even when he is interacting in normal time. He is often perceived as cocky or conceited, when instead he is simply waiting on the rest of the world to catch up. He has super speed, not super patience.
What other characters on the site does your character know or interact with?
Wanda Maximoff (Scarlet Witch) is his sister, with whom he has a deep attachment. Erik Lensherr(Magneto) is his father, and they have a deeply complicated relationship. Connection with most, if not all, of the Brotherhood.
What are your short and long term goals for your character?
Short Term: Pietro will connect again with Wanda, and other brotherhood contacts.
Long Term: Pietro will recover his past, and control his present.
What kind of plot/s would you like to see? Or see for your character?
A lot of the plots for Pietro currently will be establishing his relationships again.
CHARACTER INTERVIEW -
- In character interview questions.
Standing in front of a mirror, what do you see? What do you like and dislike about what you see?
The fastest mutant alive. Ever. I see a handsome man, who has run through life, through all of the punches and kicks its given me, and is still going.
What are your favorite clothes? What do you wear for a special night out? Relaxing on Sunday?
I have to have clothes that fit, for a lot of reasons. One, I need to be able to move. Second, I’m damn good looking and it doesn’t do to wear clothes to hide behind. Clothes that are fitted, and comfortable.
What makes you happy? Sad? Angry?
I rarely get to be truly happy. I will pretend it is always okay, but I am rarely happy. When I am, it will be in those rare quiet moments with my sister.
I am always sad. Sad for what I don't have. Sad for what is happening to Wanda. Sad for the past. Sad for the present. Sad for what the future promises to be. Always.
Now, anger? That is what follows my sadness. Always. Anger is what drives me faster and faster, every time. When my anger quits, maybe I will be fast enough.
Only one thing brings me rage. Hurting, My, Sister.
Were you raised by your family? Was it a productive relationship?
My sister and I were raised by Django and Marya Maximoff, a Rom, until our teens. We lived with them, and learned much. It was a time in my life when I was whole. But I don't think I'll ever be like that again. It's something I lost. I think Wanda still lives with it though.
My most productive, meaningful relationship. The only one that matters. Wanda. My sister, forever with me.
When did you know you had abilities others didn't? Did it change your life?
I’ve always been different. but my life was always with these abilities. My ability is my life. It's what I run off of.
Where were you and what were you doing during the Race Riots? Have you experienced any other anti-mutant behavior?
I... I wasn't around for the Race Riots. Anti-mutants make lovely boot scrapers though.
Are you still towing the line alone, or do you hang out with a group of mutants? Why did you pick them?
I know the Brotherhood. I know some others. Lately, I've been alone, for good reason. But with the Brotherhood nearby, its time I was with my people again.
What is your current living situation? How do you pay the bills?
Lucky me, that’s not really a problem. Between everything I get through the Brotherhood, and the fact that I can get to a home from anywhere, it's not bad.
Are you in a relationship? If not, is there someone you would like to be?
No. I have my sister, but I don't trust myself to handle trying to protect someone else I care about.
Setting your abilities aside, what are you good at? What can you brag about?
There’s such a thing as setting abilities aside? Fine, I’m damn good at the guitar and learning languages.
Everyone has vices or guilty pleasures, what are yours?
Well, I have a vice for getting what I want. A thing for speed leaves no patience for anything. I also love having the upper hand, always. I've lost my mind, the few times I have control over something, I feel right, just for a second.
Ok, last chance! What should we know about you?
My priorities are over yours. I don't care who you are, my priorities, like me, will barrel you over, and go for the gold.
Oh yeah, to all the psychics... beg that I don't end you out of principle.
