TBOS-OCT Character reference 2 by Fantasyfreak18 TBOS-OCT Character reference 2 by Fantasyfreak18
Name: Riley Valentine

Gender: Male

Age: 23

Physical Description: 6’1 195 pounds. Valentine is fairly fit. He dresses in nice clothes with simple styles. He has pale blue eyes that can seem both friendly and cold, depending on his mood.

Powers: He is a powerful psychic created by the government. His powers include telekinesis, mind reading, and mind control.

His favorite technique is to use telekinesis to create vibrations. With this he can fight using sound waves to blow out a person's eardrums, or to vibrate an object to pieces. He can also channel the vibrations through his sword, Which is made of an extremely strong alloy.

Gift: Riley is sucked into the book when he picks up a blank page.

Personality: At first Valentine seems laid back and friendly. He can usually get people to do what he wants. If they refuse, he may use mind control to push them in the right direction. If he doesn’t get his way he can become violent. He can be cold and emotionless, using anyone to achieve his ends. He is not above killing for a petty want.

History: Riley was selected as a test candidate for psychic research when he was seven years old. He went through the risky operation, and became one of the strongest psychics in the world. He was sent to be researched and to learn how to control his new powers. Within a few months he had the entire staff wrapped around his fingers. It was simple to control someone when you could glance into their head and see their every want.

Three years after his surgery, a young girl, Annabel, came to the facility. She instantly became an irritation. Her mind was better guarded than the guards and scientists, but he could hear enough to tell she wanted out, she wanted to go home. She hated the scientists, the guards, the tests. And she hated him, which shocked him more than anything. He had never been hated before, and he didn’t like it.

As the years passed he grew stronger, surpassing Dr. Allen, the man who had created the psychic program. He was put in charge of the other psychics, of Annabel and the people whom the surgery had only partly taken to. When he was about twenty years old, he heard Annabel’s plan to escape in her mind. He quickly made arrangements for extra guards to be stationed at her door. The night of her escape, he met her and tore the map she had drawn. She tried to push past him, but she’d always been weaker. He beat her, and did all he could to break her spirit. He left her, bleeding and crying, and ordered the guards outside to keep her from leaving.

Just before dawn, he was woken by a guard. Annabel had managed to escape despite the extra security. Dr. Allen was furious. Tired of his lectures, Valentine decided it was time for the doctor to disappear. Two weeks later, Valentine was in charge of psychic operations.

The only threat to his total control now is Annabel, and the government secrets she took with her.

So when using the psychic abilities, does he have any limits as to what he can do? What if someone is strong willed or is in a state of extreme emotion? And what about his telekinesis, does he tire himself out after a certain period of time, and is there a limit as to what he can move/vibrate with his mind?

Also, if he pushes is abilities too far, does he simply become fatigued, or does he have other symptoms, such as a bleeding nose from the mental strain or other things that might possibly happen?

Hmm, good questions. I haven't used him much, so I've never really thought about it.

If he pushes himself too far, he'll get fatigued. One reason why he's stronger than Sparrow is because he's in better shape and not starved. Too much would probably kill him, just like too much physical activity without a break can.

Strong willed people will be able to fight off his mind control and mind reading, as will other people with mental powers. If people are distracted or extremely emotional, they will be easier to control.

As far as limits on what he can move, he can juggle a few cars or a semi, but not anything bigger. That's why he uses vibrations, a building is easier to vibrate down then to move all the weight at once. The vibrations don't take much energy, as he isn't moving mush, he's just moving it very fast. It does take more concentration than just using brute force.

Valentine sounds like an interesting villain. Presuming that the telekinesis and telepathy are the tools he'll be using in the other worlds; what be his motivation? :3 Getting home, or getting control?

That's a surprise ;)
