Joshua "Jay" Guthrie was born in Cumberland, Kentucky, the third child in the
large family. It was coal mining town and that is the career most of the
residents followed, including his father. When his father died in an accident,
his brother took over as the bread-winner for the family. His brother
eventually left to go to school out of state and that left Jay to look after
the family. While he worked in the mines, his first love was music and he
supplemented his income with gigs in the local area.

His mutancy appeared in the form of wings growing out of his back. He hid them
from his family, learning to conceal them quite well beneath baggy clothing.
He also gained powers related to his voice, which he also hid. When he was
performing on stage, he would use the wings and his voice as a gimmick, for
the show, people thinking they were faked through some other means or

He fell in love with a young woman named Julia Cabot. Unfortunately, the
Guthries and Cabots were enemies, having been feuding for years. The pair
spent a summer together but were eventually found out by Julia's father. He
donned some power armor that he had found and killed Jay. In her grief, Julia
dragged Jay's body with her into the water and drowned herself.

That's when Jay's other power was revealed. His healing brought him back to
life and he found himself at the bottom of a river with his love. He took her
to shore but she was gone. He tried to take his own life only to learn he
would heal. No matter how many times he tried. His depression was extreme and
he attempted suicide multiple times while still supporting his family as best
he could. His mother couldn't take it anymore though and has decided to send
him to the school that helped his brother Samuel. Against his will, Jay is
being shipped off to study at Xavier's School.

It worked. In time he was able to move forward, though it took many months. He
graduated from there, moving on to a music scholarship for college at NYU. He
is still attending. For a living, he has a band and he is making enough money
to send home to Ma and the littles.

Recent Events


Jay has always been fun loving and happy, for the most part. He is very family
oriented and will do anything for them. His friends get the same treatment. He
is giving and thoughtful, willing to give his shirt off his back to someone in
need. There is a romantic side to him, expressed often through music or
poetry. He isn't really a hero, in his own viewpoint. He will try to help
those that need help though, not one to turn his back when someone is in need.

Character Sheet


Jay has a pair of wings that have grown out of his back. They are 20 feet when spread to their full width. His altitude is limited only by the oxygen content in the air, so he can reach around 10K feet comfortably. With an extreme strain on his system, he could reach 29K but only for a few minutes. His top speed is around 186 mph. He can fly up to 12 hours before needing to rest.


Jay is able to heal due a healing factor. He can heal a hundred times faster than a normal person. Minor cuts are gone instantly. Broken bones in a few minutes. Even major wounds that are considered lethal, he can recover from in a couple of hours. He is resistant to all diseases and toxins since his body heals anything they would do to him. He can grow back a limb if it is severed, except for his wings themselves.


Jay's physiology is altered to compensate for his wings and flight. He is more like a bird in some ways, such as his bones being hollow to help reduce weight. His body mass is zero body fat and a greater amount of muscle. He has enhanced eyesight, hearing, durability, flexibility, balance, coordination and strength due to the greater muscle mass. He would be considered peak human physically, able to lift up to 500 lbs. He is resistant to damage, body designed to be resistant to wind resistance when flying at high speeds. He is able to hear outside human ranges, including high and low frequencies.


Jay's voice is enhanced as well, allowing for sonic manipulations of various types. He can use hs voice to create an exact copy of any sound he has ever heard or can imagine. He can sound like multiple voices, becoming a full chorus all by himself if he wishes. He can match the voices of other people precisely, to the point he can fool voice recognition software. His voice can be modified to high and low frequencies humans normally cannot hear, though he can due to his modified physiology. Through the use of these sonic alternations, he has been able to hypnotize people in the past although he can only effect one or two at a time. This hypnosis is not mind control and he cannot make anyone do anything against their nature, instead it being more suggestion. . (OOC Note: Consent based on hypnosis.)
