PostSubject: Brooke Walker   Sat Aug 19, 2017 1:04 pm


Full Name: Brooke Walker
Goes by: Brooke

Gender: Female
Sexual Alignment: Heterosexual

Hair colour and style: Black. Long, although she's cut it recently. She’s also dyed it brown before.

Eye colour: A shade between green, blue, and grey, depending on the light.

Height: 5 feet
Body type: Slim, although she’s been putting on weight (in the good way)

Dress sense: Honestly whatever is in her wardrobe. She either takes extreme care to plan it out or tosses on the first thing she sees; it depends on her mood.

Birthmarks: None.
Scars: Too many to count.

Etcs: She’s got pierced ears.



Likes:
- Reading novels (except romance novels)

- Her family

- Meeting people; making friends

- Animals, especially dolphins. She has a pet snake and a pet dog

- Cassie, her counsellor

- Disney movies; Brooke has spent many days watching Disney movies with her family. Almost every holiday, they devote one night to eating junk food and having a Disney marathon. All her pets are, therefore, named after Disney characters.

- Playing sports

- Music


Dislikes: (min 3)
- Romance, because she thinks it's overrated. Love isn't; romance is.

- People who hurt others

- Textbooks

- Seeing others hurt

- The horror genre

- Violence in general


Strengths (min 3)
- Standing up for what is right no matter the personal cost; Brooke is the type to do the right thing even if it means she could get hurt.

- She’s naturally friendly and therefore makes friends with ease.

- Assessing her surroundings. Despite her somewhat vacant expression and sometimes flighty behaviour, Brooke is naturally inclined to observing and taking note of her surroundings.


Weaknesses: (min 3)
- Her family; she would do a n y t h i n g for them

- Cabins; after what happened she has a slight fear of being in a wooden cabin. (see background for more details)

- Camping, for similar reasons as the above

- Sometimes, when extremely stressed, she completely shuts down and can’t function


Positive Traits (min 3)
- Optimistic; despite everything that has happened, despite all the challenges and downs she's faced, Brooke still manages to maintain a positive outlook on life.

- Faithful and loyal to her friends, since she knows what it’s like to get abandoned or mistreated and would never like to do that to others.

- Despite her history and what she’s survived being something that she could use to brag about or use to her advantage, Brooke doesn’t do it. She’ll bring it up because it’s part of who she is (it helped shaped her, after all) but never for the sake of getting pity or people to do things for her.

- Resilient -- extremely so. She’s the type of person who somehow always manage to find a way to rise again, no matter what.


Negative Traits (min 3)
- She’s got somewhat of a saviour complex; she doesn’t want anyone to go through anything horrible and sometimes ends up stepping in when it’s not required or wanted.

- She can be a bit too open and blunt at times, scaring people away or offending them.

- Despite everything she’s witnessed, she still sees things as either black or white, believing there are no grey areas.

- Stubborn about a lot of things.

- Low patience for people who have ‘first world problems’

Age: 16
Birthdate: Unknown
Adoption Date: 21 August

Blood Purity: Unknown; either muggleborn or halfblood

House: Hufflepuff
Wand Type: Cypress, Phoenix feather, 10 inches, flexible



Dislikes:
- Potions;  she’s not meticulous enough to stand watch over a cauldron and follow step-by-step instructions, and usually ends up botching the whole thing.

Strengths:
- Magic; she’s actually quite talented in magic, although she doesn’t yet know the extent of her capabilities.

Weaknesses:
- Combat magic; she doesn’t have the heart to use or learn spells that are made to hurt others




Trigger Warning: Abuse, rape, depression, self-harming, suicide attempt. Read at your own caution.


As a baby, Brooke was found on the streets in a cardboard box. She was taken in by a young couple who lived on the streets; they were gang members, and she grew up surrounded by violence. Thankfully, she only remembers some of it. She was not given a name during this point of time. At the age of six, she was found wandering the streets -- she had left the house while her ‘parents’ had passed out from an overdose -- and picked up by local cops. She remembers little of these days, although, unfortunately, there are still some memories.

Placed in the system, she was given the name ‘Rose’. For the next few months, she was passed around from foster home to foster home. It was here she learnt that not all those who looked after children did so out of compassion, and an equal amount didn’t even like children. After almost half a year of being passed from home to home, she was finally adopted by a muggle couple.

It was around this age that her magical abilities started showing up. Things would go flying when she was upset, or she’d break things when she walked past them. Unfortunately for her, her adoptive parents were the ‘religious’ sort and she was the recipient of multiple attempts to ‘cleanse’ her of evil spirits.

Beatings, starvation, near-drownings, suffocation… These were the most common methods used, although more creative things were tried, without success. For years, she lived like this, her magical abilities suppressed as much as she could. Luckily, some years later, before she could become an Obscurial, she was rescued when her magical abilities became so irrepressible that she willed a pipe to burst and rain water down on her. A representative of the Ministry came by to inform them what was going on, only to find her tied to her bed, crying and trying to drink the water dripping down. She was freed and brought to St. Mungo’s at once, where she made a full recovery.

Now nine years old, she was soon adopted by an infertile but loving magical couple -- Caleb and Aurelia Walker. They’d previously adopted a boy, named Colby, who was two years older than her, and had wanted a girl to complete their family. She was finally given a proper name -- Brooke Walker -- and found Home. She came to know them as ‘mum’ and ‘dad’, and learnt to lower her walls and let people in. Soon, there were no traces of the abuse she faced, and everyone agreed she was a bright, cheerful little girl who loved life and people.

She started school at 11, sorted into Hufflepuff for her capability to still love people despite all she’d been through, although she was almost put into Gryffindor for her sheer bravery and will to survive. If you ask her, though, she would point to her family -- to her mum, dad, and brother -- and tell you that it’s only because of them that she’s where she is today.

When she was 14, during the summer holidays, she fell sick with a bad case of flu. The family had been on a camping trip in the muggle world, and scheduled a guided trek into the mountains; not wanting them to miss it, Brooke told them to go on ahead. She would stay and rest in the cabin.

Shortly after they left, just as she got comfortable on the couch with a book, there was a knock on the door. Thinking it was one of her parents or Colby having forgotten something, she opened the door without checking. A strange man she dimly recognised as staying in one of the other cabins nearby pushed his way through, pointed a knife at her, grabbed her arm, and told her if she screamed he would hurt her. There was, Brooke knew, nobody else nearby, and she didn’t bother to try.

He pulled her into one of the bedrooms, forced her to undress, and raped her.

When her parents came back two hours later, they found her curled up in a ball, naked, and crying. They barely managed to get the story out of her, but when they did, her dad -- an auror -- immediately left to find him. He was long gone, but with contact in the muggle world, her dad put out an immediate request for him to be found. Her mum -- a Healer -- meanwhile, was getting her changed and making sure she was unharmed otherwise.

Two days later, the rapist was caught, charged, and sentenced. It wasn’t enough for Brooke; a part of her had been taken away forever.

She fell into a deep depression for months after, going so far as to pull out of school while she tried to cope. There was this deep seated feeling of absolute disgust -- at herself, at him, at the world, at everything -- that she couldn’t get rid of. She felt dirty, filthy almost, to a point where she would spend long periods of time in the shower trying to scrub herself clean. While she was watched carefully by her parents, her showers were the only time they gave her privacy, not wanting to take it all away. Her obsession with wanting to not feel dirty eventually escalated, and she would use a razor and her nails to scratch her skin, in particular her thighs, trying to get rid of the feeling.

Two months after the incident happened, her parents found her unconscious in the bathtub. They’d passed by the door and heard the water splashing onto the floor. It was this -- combined with her father’s instincts -- that caused them to unlock and open the door.

She had slit her wrists.

Her mother performed some quick and immediate first aid and Brooke was rushed to St. Mungo’s. Thankfully, her baby was unharmed. She remained in the hospital for the next month, meeting with psychologists on a daily basis. None seemed to help; she refused to see them after the first meeting -- until Cassie. The no-nonsense woman had come in, sat next to Brooke, offered her a chocolate (which Brooke refused, and Cassie had shrugged and eaten herself), and then said, “Right, we’re working this out together whether you like it or. If you can’t find it in yourself to live, do it for your child. Life’s not fair, and you’re not really going to kill her because you couldn’t handle something, are you?. My name is Cassie; you are?”

The blunt tactics worked, and within a week Brooke was allowed home. A further two months later, Brooke’s mental health began to improve. Soon enough, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl she named Carissa, having poured over many baby name books and having fallen in love with it. There was the added benefit of it meaning ‘beloved’ or ‘very dear’, which was how she felt about her child.

A while after that, she asked to return to school. Having skipped just over a year, she was placed in back in her 4th year, which she didn’t mind.

It was then that she met Ceyal. She'd gone off to the lake to be by herself, to fight off a panic attack,
and he'd been there. They got to talking, both realising the other was also a Survivor. He was one of the few people who knew her whole story, told there and then, and the only one she'd ever told before fully knowing.

Later that year, they started dating. Brooke started taking extra classes and tuition with her Professors, doubling her workload in order to skip a year and return to what matched her age; she didn't want to be a sixteen-year-old in her fifth year. With Ceyal's support and that of her family, she managed to catch up on her subjects.

Age: 15
Birthdate: Unknown
Adoption Date: August 21

Class: Superhero
Occupation: Student

Superpower: Emotion manipulation

Brooke can detect and manipulate emotions in people. That is to say, she can sense existing emotions -- fear, lust, anger, love, etc -- and adjust them, either by increasing or decreasing them. She is limited to one pre-existing emotion (she can’t cause emotions, only alter ones that already exist in someone) at a time, and the person must be within range, which expands more as she matures.

As stated, she can only manipulate emotions that already exist in a person; she can’t create, for example, lust where there isn’t lust, or hate where there is no hate. However, if even the smallest traces of an emotion exists, she can increase or decrease it -- although not to an extreme extent. (If there is some lust, she can make a little more; if there is a lot, she can make it extreme, etc.)

The way she explains it, is that the emotions are like a numbering scale from 1 to 10. She can increase or decrease emotions a few ‘numbers’ on the scale (this being key; she can’t exceed 10 or drop below 1), but she can’t take a ‘1’ to a ‘9’ or vice versa. If something is a 5, she could make it 7 or 3, for example, but not more/less than that. (Of course, she doesn’t sense it on a number scale; she just uses this to better illustrate the extent of her capabilities.)

At the height of her abilities, the person only needs to be in sight, and she’ll be able to manage multiple emotions at once, up to a maximum of five, in more than one person (although it will be difficult and taxing). This won’t be until she’s a fully experienced adult, though.


Brooke absolutely hates having to use her abilities for anything other than good. She doesn’t like the idea of manipulating people in any way. The only time she uses it is when someone is panicking or upset, and needs to be calmed down, or when they’re angry and about to do something awful. Even then, she feels guilty and apologises after.


Trigger Warning: Abuse, rape, depression, self-harming, suicide attempt. Read at your own caution.

As a baby, Brooke was found on the streets in a cardboard box. She was taken in by a young couple who lived on the streets; they were gang members, and she grew up surrounded by violence. Thankfully, she only remembers some of it. She was not given a name during this point of time. At the age of six, she was found wandering the streets -- she had left the house while her ‘parents’ had passed out from an overdose -- and picked up by local cops. She remembers little of these days, although, unfortunately, there are still some memories.

Placed in the system, she was given the name ‘Rose’. For the next few months, she was passed around from foster home to foster home. It was here she learnt that not all those who looked after children did so out of compassion, and an equal amount didn’t even like children. After almost half a year of being passed from home to home, she was finally adopted by a civilian couple.

Unfortunately, they were abusive. Beatings, starvation, near-drownings, suffocation… For years, she lived like this. It was around this time that she discovered her abilities, when she could somehow tell when one of them was in a mood. It wasn’t until one day when she was actually terrified for her life that she realised she could control it, lessening it by just a little.

She practised and practised until she knew how to do it. And then, one day at nine, she found an opportunity and ran away. Going to the police station, she told them everything that happened. She silently tracked each of their emotions, pushing down a little of their doubt and increasing the part of them that believed her, as well as sympathy. It was a long, taxing thing and by the time she finished telling her story, certain they would believe her, she fell asleep almost at once.

Her parents were arrested and she was sent back to foster care. This time, however, she was adopted by Caleb and Aurelia Walker, two superheroes. They’d previously adopted a boy, named Colby, who was two years older than her, and had wanted a girl to complete their family. She was finally given a proper name -- Brooke Walker -- and found Home. She came to know them as ‘mum’ and ‘dad’, and learnt to lower her walls and let people in. Soon, there were no traces of the abuse she faced, and everyone agreed she was a bright, cheerful little girl who loved life and people.

They soon found out her abilities, and she was encouraged to manage them; as soon as she was 14, she would be enrolled in the superhero school. In the meantime, she attended normal school, giving her the education she never received as a child, with her first set of parents having ‘homeschooled’ her.

When she was 13, during the summer holidays, she fell sick with a bad case of flu. The family had been on a camping trip, and scheduled a guided trek into the mountains; not wanting them to miss it, Brooke told them to go on ahead. She would stay and rest in the cabin.

There was, Brooke knew, nobody else nearby, and she didn’t bother to try; his emotions were out of whack, and as much as she tried to alter them, it didn’t do much.

He pulled her into one of the bedrooms, forced her to undress, and raped her.

When her parents came back two hours later, they found her curled up in a ball, naked, and crying. They barely managed to get the story out of her, but when they did, her dad immediately left to find him. He was long gone, but as a respected man, her dad put out an immediate request for him to be found. Her mum -- who had healing abilities -- was getting her changed and making sure she was unharmed otherwise.

Two days later, the rapist was caught, charged, and sentenced. It wasn’t enough for Brooke; a part of her had been taken away forever.

She fell into a deep depression for months after, going so far as to pull out of school while she tried to cope. It was later discovered she was pregnant.

Her obsession with wanting to not feel dirty eventually escalated, and she would use a razor and her nails to scratch her skin, in particular her thighs, trying to get rid of the feeling.

Three months after the incident happened, her parents found her unconscious in the bathtub. They’d passed by the door and heard the water splashing onto the floor. It was this -- combined with her father’s instincts -- that caused them to unlock and open the door.

She had slit her wrists.

Her mother performed some quick and immediate first aid and Brooke was rushed to to the hospital. Thankfully, her baby was unharmed.

Soon enough, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl she named Carissa, having poured over many baby name books and having fallen in love with it. There was the added benefit of it meaning ‘beloved’ or ‘very dear’, which was how she felt about her child.

Skipping her first year of high school to focus on healing and her baby, Brooke fell in love with the world once again. Enrolling at the school at 15, making her among the oldest -- and yet, surprisingly, not the oldest -- in her year, Brooke fell back into studies.
