Brief (around 300 words) personality outline of your character: People say that nice guys finish last. Well, Kyle is one of those nice guys that break the rule, most of the time; we’ll just ignore the whole freezer incident, okay? In general Kyle is the kind of guy you want as your best friend. He’d be the shoulder to cry on and the guy taking your keys away when you’re wasted off your ass. Kyle is also loyal and self sacrificing, willing to give up his own life for the greater cause, which has been proven in multiple ways outside of giving up his life. During his time as ION he gave up the powers in order to recharge the central battery and restore the Guardians and everyone else for that matter. Kyle is generally excited and honored to be a Lantern and takes great pride in his “job.” Out of the four Green Lantern’s from Earth, Kyle can be considered the most grounded and in touch. He’s the one you would want to confide your secrets to. A perfect example of this and his general “good guy” attitude can be found in how he dealt with his assistant Terry Berg. After Terry got upset over Kyle proposing to Jade; Kyle realized that Terry had feelings for him. Instead of shooting him down, he took the time to sit down and talk to him about it, becoming good friends with as a result. Kyle can also be considered an “everyman,” meaning that he’s basically like you or me. He wasn’t a Marine or an Air Force test pilot. He’s a struggling artist who only became a Lantern because he happened to be in the right place at the right time, or the wrong place depending on how you look at it. He didn't have other people to help him as a Lantern, so he had to rely on trial and error and just failing in general. Oh, and he has the imagination of a five year old, kinda helps when you're an artist, right?
Brief (around 500 words) history and background of your character OR link to a really good wiki page with their history. In either case, explain where they cut off from the timeline: http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Kyle_Rayner_(N
Sample post (just a general, everyday, puttering-around-the-ship post; please include a snippet of dialogue): There was something to be said about the feeling of blowing yourself up. It felt like you had just been swallowed by a huge monster and spit back up onto the floor. Blowing yourself up was supposed to heroic, not slimy.
Kyle slowly opened his eyes; the fact that it was even possible was shocking enough as it is. “What…” It was as if everything was moving in slow motion, he checked his kneecaps (because, who doesn’t check their kneecaps after blowing yourself up?) and then his stomach…that was all in place too. Finally he ran his fingers through his hair and frowned. “This is definitely not my brand of hair gel... and it looks like the only thing I blew off were my clothes. Great.”
Who knew that the Alpha Lanterns were such perverts? Their massive batteries which should have nuked him to kingdom come had only managed to burn Kyle’s clothes off and deposit him in some….odd…pile of slime. That was the deal with the Alpha lanterns. They were as much of a police force as the Policeman in the Village People.
Kyle flexed his fingers a bit, no ring but it was only a matter of time before it came back. He really needed to take a second and pat himself on the back for making it so that his ring could never go to someone else. It was just safer that way. “Hey…can one of you….” what were they anyway? “Little helper things… tell me where my clothes are and why does it smell like a locker-room…”
If the character has magic, mutant, or otherwise metahuman abilities, please explain what they are and outline EXACTLY how they function, as their powers may not work due to the nature of the ship or may need to be limited somehow:
Awesome Green Lantern powers activate; Kyle is in procession of a Green Power Ring. With this ring he can make constructs with the power of his INDOMITABLE WILL. (My will can beat up your will, what?). Out of all the Green Lanterns, Kyle’s constructs are some of the most powerful and COMPLICATED of all. Why? Because he’s a comic artist and he has an overactive imagination ...don’t judge him! If he wants to make a giant green mecha, he’s allowed...right? There’s also a shit load of other Lantern powers… like flying and a translator…shields and making porn... well, maybe not making porn… but the rings can certainly do a lot of crap. As for limitations, the rings have their own; as in they can only carry certain amount of energy. Once the energy is used, the rings must be recharged. As there is no central battery on Stacy or anywhere (since the universes were destroyed) Kyle would have to be extremely careful on how often he actually uses his ring and to what extent.
Non-superhuman special abilities of note (Is your character a master ventriloquist? A naturally-occurring super-genius? The best martial artist in the world? Say so here): He’s an artist.... and his girlfriends have a habit of dying and may or may not be shoved into the freezer afterwards.
