Likes: (min 3)
- A good book

- Snow
- Makeup

Dislikes: (min 3)
- Initiating conversation with people she doesn’t know
- Crowds
- Small talk
- Being stigmatised
- Talking verbally or having to try
- Having to explain to people how she became Deaf
- Being different alone
- Swimming/being submerged in water
- Small minded people


Strengths (min 3)
- Listening to friends and people in need
- Being there for people; she has this knack for getting people to open up
- She writes amazing poems; she uses writing as a way to express herself
- She’s great at finding alternate ways to do things, and doesn’t easily give up
- Reading lips; she’s not the best, but she’s picked up quite a bit and can fair a little better than the average Deaf person


Weaknesses: (min 3)
- Public speaking (obviously)
- A nice autumn or spring day; she loves talking long walks in the forest or by lakes.
- Deep water; she can’t swim
- Crowds; they frighten her, since she can’t tell what’s going on or judge the atmosphere based off sounds


Positive Traits (min 3)
- She really cares about people and doesn’t like to see them hurt

- Really gentle with everyone around her

- Patient, since she knows what it’s like to not be understood

- She’s the type of person who bounces back really quickly


Negative Traits (min 3)
- Painfully shy, so much so that she could and would go for weeks without talking to anyone

- She’s quite conscious about her Deafness. Having grown up in a small town where nobody really batted an eye when she would order food through either signing or writing it down, she is naturally a little iffy about how others would receive her.

- A lot of times, Amber lets people walk all over her, since she isn’t the best at standing up for herself

- Absent-minded; a lot of times, she doesn’t pay attention to anything going on around her, instead getting lost in her own thoughts.

Age: 16
Birthdate: 8 July

Class: Superhero
Occupation: Student

Superpower: Mind reading

From a young age, Amber realised that, while Deaf and unable to hear things around her, if she focused enough, she could hear the thoughts of someone nearby in her own mind, no matter the language. However, she has to be close -- she’s never measured it before, but typically, if she’s able to read their lips, she can also read their mind -- and has to be able to see them clearly (she can’t read someone’s thoughts through a wall or door, even if the wall is only a foot thick and well within range). They also can’t be obstructed by something thick, even if she can see them. She is, however, improving at this, and can get fragments of thoughts when someone is behind a window or transparent material.

Amber also has to adjust her mental shield every so often, because if she lets her mind wander, she can hear bits and pieces of their thoughts when she doesn't mean to. At the start, the mental shield had to be adjusted every half hour or so, but now that she's 16, she only really needs to do it once every few hours or when she finds she's drifting mentally, which isn't often; Amber is often very focused on one thing or another.




TO FILL




Amber was spoilt from the moment she was born. When she was three months old, she came down with an unknown sickness. Admitted to the hospital, she spent three weeks in the ICU, where Amber’s fever reached such a high degree that it left her with permanent hearing damage. She was released after a month there, fully recovered, except for her hearing; by the time she was five months, she could barely hear any sounds, and she was pronounced officially Deaf by the seventh month.

Amber nevertheless grew up with whatever she wanted, her parents hiring private tutors for both themselves and her, so that they whole family -- staff included -- would know ASL by the time she was old enough to properly communicate.

At the age of six, it was discovered that she somehow knew what people were thinking. It was then that they discovered that while the unknown virus had taken her hearing, it had given her something else, as well, and soon she was being visited once every few months by representatives of the Superhero Council to determine the extent of her abilities, and to see if it was dormant or active.

Instead of sending her to a public school, her parents opted for a private tutor, giving her lessons each workday, so they could control what she was learning and tailor it to her strengths and weaknesses. Unbeknownst to them, Amber used this time to work on her abilities, practising on her unsuspecting (civilian) tutors. She got her social interaction with kids around the neighbourhood, as well as a Deaf support group her parents attended that had monthly gatherings.

Her abilities only grew stronger, and with age came the ability to explain it as well; at twelve, she was able to accurately demonstrate what she could and couldn’t do enough for the council to realise that, while not the most powerful mind reader, she had promising capabilities and could become strong with time. It was then they offered her a place at the elite high school for superheroes.

For two years, she continued her private tutoring, where she learnt all that she needed to about maths and geography and science. At fourteen, she started school, and thrived in the new environment despite the setbacks; with it being so private, she wasn’t allowed to have an interpreter with her lest they be a spy for anyone with ill intents. Since it wasn’t compulsory for them to reveal their abilities -- although some of them were so obvious that they couldn’t hide it if they tried, and some didn’t want to hide it -- Amber kept mum about hers, which wasn’t hard once people realised she was Deaf.

Having Elleon there was a comfort, and the years passed by quickly. Their friendship blossomed into more, and soon enough she realised she had feelings for her best friend. Entering her third year there, at 16, Amber is looking forward to continuing her studies while trying to figure out what to do about Elleon.
