PostSubject: Eden Ming   Wed Nov 29, 2017 3:07 pm


Full Name: Ming Ji Ern (Eden is his English name)
Goes by: Eden, to pretty much everyone.

Gender: Male
Sexual Alignment: Homosexual



Hair colour and style: Dark brown, almost black, but sometimes he dyes it (blonde, white, red, etc). He keeps it longish and sometimes it can appear messy, but he promises it’s actually a proper styling method and he doesn’t not comb it.

Eye colour: Dark brown

Height: 5’ 6
Body type: Average.

Dress sense: It really depends on his mood. Usually he just tosses a jacket or hoodie over a shirt and jeans.

Birthmarks: None.
Scars: Just the typical childhood ones.

Etcs:



Likes: (min 3)
- Plants; ever since he was young, he had a love for all things botanical

- The outdoors, especially woods and forests and gardens, basically anywhere with loads of flora.

- Going for long walks in parks/woods/forests/gardens

- Crocheting little animals


Dislikes: (min 3)
- Crowds of people

- The ocean, lakes, rivers; he’s more of a wood/forest person

- Sitting still; not doing anything with his hands (that’s why he took up crocheting)

- Eating vegetables; he likes growing plants, but doesn’t like the ‘green’ taste of veggies.


Strengths (min 3)
- Eden is really, almost eerily, good at taking care of plants. He can bring almost any plant back from the brink of death.

- Despite (or perhaps because of) his aversion to human interaction, Eden has the ability to read moods really well. He can sense mood changes in a person and gauge how well a conversation is going, or whether they’re upset/happy/etc. (Whether he knows how to deal with it is another question altogether, of course.)

- Seeing both sides of the coin; while he doesn’t easily sway from his opinions or beliefs, Eden can more often than not see from the other point of view, and not only respect, but understand it. He doesn’t pick fights with people who view the opposite of him (unless about something huge, like animal abuse being right, or whatnot).


Weaknesses: (min 3)
- Greenhouses and plant sales.

- Social interaction, although if he wants to he can (he just doesn’t like it, not that he’s truly bad at it). He tends to find small talk and pleasantries cumbersome.

- Crowds; he tends to get a little anxious when surrounded by too many people. (He’s somewhat claustrophobic, although it only stems to people; if he’s in a tight enclosed space with plants and no people, he’s good.)

- He honestly loves a good medium-rare steak, although he doesn’t get them at home, since his parents are vegetarians


Positive Traits (min 3)
- Kind; Eden is the type to go out of his way to help a friend (and perhaps even a stranger) in need.

- Gentle; either stemming from his many hours spent taking care of plants or his natural instincts, he’s quiet and calm when others aren’t, and is generally soft spoken and gentle.

- Caring to both family, friends, and strangers, although the former two by a considerable amount more.

- Generous with his friends and family.


Negative Traits (min 3)
- He tends to prefer plants over people; he can spend days in greenhouses or tending to his plants without any social interaction

- Can be somewhat of a pushover. He tends to want to please/help his friends, and therefore can be easily manipulated into doing things he normally wouldn’t like to do by those he considers friends.

- Eden sometimes forgets to take care of himself when tending to plants (and sometimes people). If dealing with a sick or dying plant, for example, Eden has been known to forget to eat for days while he monitored the plant.

- He often puts plants over work, and will ignore homework or things like bill paying.

Age: 16
Birthdate: March 19

Class: Somewhat neutral, tending towards good. (He isn’t bad at his core, but sometimes he just gets tired of the whole ‘good vs evil’ thing and takes a neutral stance.)
Occupation: Student (Year 3)

Superpower: Healing (plant based)

He has the ability to heal both external and internal injuries. However, he uses the energy and life force of plants to do so, essentially ‘killing’ the plant (or wilting it partially). The more he heals, the more of a plant is used; if an injury is bad enough, he might have to use multiple plants.

Eden is, therefore, somewhat hesitant to use his abilities, despite knowing that human lives are more valuable than plant lives (or, at least, most human lives are more valuable).

He can only heal physical or internal injuries, like cuts, scrapes, burns, broken bones, etc. He cannot, however, heal mental injuries. He can heal in anything living, including, therefore, animals of any kind.




Eden tends to see his abilities as part blessing, part curse. It’s a great thing to be able to heal people or animals that need healing. However, it comes at the cost of his plants (unless minor healing, in which case he can still tend to his plant after), and that’s a curse.

Still, he knows that healing people is important, and in his shoulder bag (that he almost always carries around with him) he’s got at least two cacti, which are the most durable plants (and therefore the best at healing people), in case of emergencies.

A sort of side-effect to this power is that he can also sense the amount of ‘life’ a plant has, not in emotions or anything but rather just how much they can heal someone. He can also tell if a plant is poisonous or not. (Poisonous plants have less ‘life’ to give, and wilt faster if he uses them to heal.)




[[OOC: Really Bad because I’m lazy.]]

Eden is a second-generation Chinese-American, with his grandparents still living in Hong Kong. Eden visits them once or twice a year, typically around Chinese New Year, but other than that hardly sees them, and is more American than anything else; he speaks minimal Mandarin. He does, however, have a fondness for genuine Chinese food -- dim sum especially.

His parents are vegetarians, at first mostly due to cost (they couldn’t really afford meat much), but habit after his father’s business took off. (Eden, however, is not one.) With a large plot of land, Eden’s parents mostly grow their own food (it was later their business), and he grew up learning to tend to different types of plants and harvest. It was here that he discovered his love for plants, and his skill in growing things.

For the first 5 or so years of Eden’s life, they lived in more or less poverty, until Eden’s father’s business (as mentioned, it was a farming one) took off when he got a contract to supply to a large-chain supermarket. Their profit came practically overnight, and within a month or so they’d moved out of their home into a larger farm.

He first discovered his abilities at the age of 8. His father had been trying to fix a tractor out in the field when the support it was raised on collapsed, crushing him. The hired hands of the farm got it off him quickly, but it was bad; his legs had been crushed along with numerous ribs, and one had punctured his lung. Eden, who’d been playing nearby, ran to his dad, pushing past the helpers who tried to stop him. Somehow, without quite knowing what he was doing, he placed a hand on his dad and felt, instinctively, what he needed to do. Drawing the energy from the plants around him, he poured it all into his dad, commanding it to heal him. Ten minutes later, there was a circle of dead crops around them, and his father was healed completely.

A visit to the council of superheroes determined that he did, indeed, have powers, and he was guaranteed a place in the school when he turned 14.

It was after this that his plant obsession truly kicked off, and Eden started collecting them, to a point where his father had to construct not one, not two, but four different greenhouses for the different ones that Eden would buy or collect. (He would often go on trips to the forest or nearby woods with his nanny or babysitter, armed with a wheelbarrow, a shovel, and numerous pots. He’d returned with them filled with different flora he had found and added to the collection in his greenhouses.)

In his first year at the school, at 14, he got himself a job helping out at the garden and greenhouses, much to his delight. He also met Arthur, whom he quickly became friends with, along with another boy, Daniel. It wasn’t very long after that Eden developed a crush on Art, keeping it to himself; they’d only known each other a month or so, and it was way too soon to talk about feelings.

And then Daniel’s sister died, and Dan’s mental health spun out of control. Almost immediately after that bit of bad news (if that’s what you could call such a tragedy), Daniel killed himself. The news almost crushed him, but not as much as it did Art. When Arthur left it was not too difficult to guess why; the death of Daniel had shook him, too. Almost every week, Eden would call Arthur, leaving him lengthy voicemails, telling him about his day and basically trying to keep him involved with the day-to-day runnings of the school, aiming for as much normality in the chaos as he could.

Whether Arthur ever listened to them, Eden didn’t know; he never received any responses, but still, each Saturday morning like clockwork, Eden would go to one of the greenhouses where there was privacy, call Arthur, still hoping each time that he would hear a ‘hello’ instead of the robotic ‘leave a message’ tone, and told Art about his week. Sometimes he complained about teachers, sometimes he talked about his grades or homework, and sometimes he could only say ‘I miss you’. Whatever the case, Eden never once brought up Daniel or what happened; it just wasn’t right.

Still, he coped the best he could, pouring his energy into the greenhouses and the plants, eventually earning the right to have a private section of greenhouse for some of his own collection, since it had to do with his powers.

When Arthur did eventually come back to school the following year, Eden could sense the change in the once-happy boy. He was glad to have him back, of course, his crush having never gone away despite the distance (and lack of communication) but he could also tell something had changed in him. He tried asking, a couple times, carefully navigating the subject and never bringing it up directly, but when Art didn’t respond well, he dropped the subject altogether. And then late that year, Art disappeared one day and came back with a service dog.

More time passed, and Eden grew to care even more deeply for Arthur. When Brooke, an apparent childhood friend of Arthur’s, also arrived at school with a service dog of her own, Eden was not jealous. Instead, he was glad and almost relieved, hoping that the girl would be able to help Art more than he did. He, too, became good friends with her.
