School of the Mutants

By StarrNico, Feb 23, 2014 | |
  1. StarrNico
    Something has happened, genetically, to the children of America. Not all. But here and there, there are kids with mutant abilities who are cast out or run away because of their differences with everyone else. Their own family's turn on them as throw them out, or the kids leave, not wanting to hurt their families. The government wants to keep this below the surface, not wanting panic to break out across America. So they built a school called "school of the gifted." It was a place for all mutants to live and be educated. The campus was larger than a college campus, big enough to be a small city. All mutants, who had left their home or had been kicked out, were located and transferred to the school. They became a tight family, looking out for one another ad helping each other learn to control their abilities.

    *Plot*

She also likes to fly at night, because her black wings blend in with the night and no one can see her. Soft hearted, can have a bad temper. Sensitive, and caring.
    History: her mother died when Luna was only 8, leaving her father to take care of Luna and her younger brother, Jacob. She lied her father and brother dearly. When she started getting her 'gifts', she was only 10. She's one of the youngest people to get their mutant powers. When she was 16 and her brother was 13, they were playing outside in the middle of July. She had made the entire backyard a iceskating rink and was flying her brother above the ice, holding his hand, her pitch black wings spread wide. They were on an isolated farm, so there was no need to hide her gifts. But when her brother's hand slipped from her own, he fell and hit his head on the ice, leaving him with a concussion and a broken wrist. She had locked herself in her room for days, not eating or coming out. She pulsing control we ice powers and her flying wasnt that good. She was a danger to her family and decided to leave. She packed a backpack full if her belongings along with a large stash of money she had saved up over the years with, then, jumping from her balcony, she flew away from the old farm, from which she had lived on for her entire life. She wasn't are what she was going to do, but she couldn't ever see her family again.

She had gotten her powers a few days earlier and could beat the sh** out of him. Which she did. That night, when he started yelling and hit her, she finally couldn't stand it and punched him in the stomach, sending him flying backwards and hitting the couch. Ever since that night, her father had been scared if her. He avoided her and hardly ever spoke to her. A few months after she turned 17, her father told her to leave ad never come back, or he'd call the police. She did. She was happy to leave him behind, but gave him a good punch in the nose before she left, saying "that's for making my life a living h***." And with that, she left. After a few weeks of living on her own, a man approached her and told her who he was and why he was there. He was the founder of the school for mutants and offered her a home at the school and she gladly accepted it.
