Cyclops

History

Scott Summers doesn't remember much of his childhood. He knows his father was a pilot, dashing and strong. He remembers his mother's warmth and the sound of her voice. But mostly he remembers the crash - the chaos, the bright light. Scott and his brother shoved out of the door, the parachute failing. His powers manifesting for the first time, blasting into the ground and barely saving their lives. Him and his brother's lives, at least.

The system separated him from his brother. Scott found himself in a 'facility' for troubled youth. Unwilling to bow to bullies or cower in fear, Scott got in a lot of fights. Fights that got worse when his uncontrolled powers fully matured, damage from the crash robbing him of the ability to channel his powers at will. Scott was well on his way to being locked up when he was found by the benevolent educator, Professor Charles Xavier, a fellow mutant who brought Scott with him to be a student at his newly formed Institute.

Scott showed a gift for the training he received and became the first of the so-called 'X-men', a group of adventurers under Xavier's tutelage dedicated to encouraging peaceful coexistence with humans and to protect the vulnerable from the predatory impulses of malicious mutants. Scott proved himself a capable fighter and a good tactician, if perhaps a bit inflexible and stiff for the tastes of some.

Over the years, Scott has left and rejoined the team on several occasions and in and out of positions of leadership. Always willing to bear the burden, he has become something of a big brother figure, offering advice, experience and insight. He also still goes out and kicks the crap out of those who threaten to harm or destroy the things he's worked so hard to achieve. With registration coming to pass, he feels, perhaps, a bit discouraged and disheartened. He has to think about things. But he will always stand by his friends.

Personality

Scott is often described as a 'boy scout', but that's not exactly right. He is a very disciplined individual, very square in some senses. He believes in duty, responsibility, work ethic. He pushes himself and those around him at all times to be the best that they can be. He sticks to his principles as he sees them and tries to engage the world in a thoughtful and just way.

But he's not particularly wholesome. He is practical, first and foremost, not particularly as interested in the nuances of morality and debate that so often consume mutant activists. He wants results, however they come and, while he has engaged in trying to create peaceful coexistence, that should never be mistaken for him being soft. On the contrary, Scott can be a very dark man indeed, prone to brooding and closed-off to others. Relatively few ever truly get to know him intimately. He tends to keep people at arm's length, to preserve his objectivity. Of course, he cares more than he often lets on - in truth, he's a very passionate man with very strong feelings. He just keeps a tight grip on their reins.

Character Sheet

OPTIC BLASTS: Cyclops' primary ability lies in his optic blasts. Scott produces a continuous stream of concussive force generated by his eyes, presumably from an otherdimensional source. The crimson energy has incredible blunt force power, capable of shattering cars, blowing holes in mountains and hitting superhumans with strength equivalent to the blows of a titanic superhuman brick. Scott has become adept at using his visor to help control and measure the power and precision of these blasts, giving him an incredible sharpshooting ability as well as a massive sweeping area assault. The blasts are absorbed by ruby quartz material. Scott can reabsorb his own blasts (and those of anyone of his genetic markers, like a sibling). By angling the blasts just so, he can create ricochet impacts, enabling him to blast multiple targets with one shot, going from one to another, although the more he chains, the more difficult it can be. By focusing his blasts in a tight form, he can increase their thermal element, making it more of a cutting laser, enabling him to slice through steel plates like a knife through butter.
