Jade

History

Jen Hayden's life has not been an easy one. Born in 2000, she was unaware of her parental lineage for many years. Her mother was Rose Canton and her father, Alan Scott, the original Green Lantern. Rose and Alan conceived twins, but Rose had a violently psychotic break and fled shortly afterwards. The twins were put up for adoption, which led to Jen having a very troubled childhood. With her unusual green skin clearly marking her as metahuman, adoptive situations were rare and unpleasant. She bounced through the foster system for years. Her powers manifested in her mid-teens when an adoptive parent assaulted her and she reflexively defended herself.

Homeless for some time, Jade was found by an outreach program funded by the Xavier Institute. Jen finally found a semblance of a home among the X-men. They helped her develop her self-control in relative privacy and kept her in a nurturing environment until she graduated her high school equivalency and became a legal adult.

With the passage of the Metahuman Registration Act, Jen left New York and moved to Metropolis. She adopted her new alias as 'Jade' and for the first time, started using her gifts in public as a proud and unapologetic metahuman. Like many foster children, she's used to being alone and operating independently, and for the moment seems content to stay that way.

Recent Events

Personality

Jennifer is a survivor. She vacillates between emotional detachment and inappropriate blustering aggression. Without good family memories she tends to withdraw from social connections with people, and won't maintain them without someone else making a significant effort to engage her. Unwanted physical contact provokes a strong response. She is not a natural flirt but has been known to use her looks to manipulate people. Jen's eating habits and hygiene are sometimes a little erratic. She likes dogs, but hates rodents. Her main hobby is photography and she dreams of acting someday. Jen has a surprisingly good following on social media, modelling for Instagram and funding her inner shutterbug with a Patreon account that provides a modest side-income.

RP Hooks

Jen does not know her father is the famous Alan Scott, or her affiliation with the Lanterns through him.

She has friends and allies among the X-men.

Relationships

Jennifer is notoriously standoffish and isolated. She also has a highly ascerbic personality that keeps people at arm's length.

Character Sheet

CHLOROKINESIS: Jen has limited ability to manipulate living plants. She can encourage them to grow and even move in limited, sporadic ways.

ENERGY MANIPULATION: Like the Green Lanterns, Jen can create constructs that blur the line between energy and matter. This derives from the magical power of the sentient force known as the Starheart, rather than being technological in nature. Her powers are still somewhat nascent, and she tends to use unsubtle and crude methods when panicked. The Starheart's ability to interact and manipulate the entire matter-energy spectrum has disturbing implications for Jen when she realizes the full potential of her abilities.

Currently, she can:

-Create energetic fields that form constructs capable of interacting with physical matter.
-Emit a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, including heat beams and X-rays. She can create ionised plasma and electrical discharges and uses both offensively.
-Fly at supersonic speeds
-Detect even faint and very unusual sensory cues, both mundane and magical in nature.
-Form a protective shell of incredible durability, capable of withstanding intense bombardment.
-Phase herself so light passes through her.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS: Jen's skin contains chlorophyll. Soaking up sunlight helps obviate some of her nutrition needs.
