Rogue

History

Anna Marie was an abandoned child who grew up in the foster system on the Mississippi side of bayou country, though she got placed with a long-term family young. Caldecott County was like dozens of other Mississippi counties just like it: rural, poor, with a whole lot of nothing to do and a whole lot of kids who dreamed of getting out just as soon as possible.

And she grew up without a lot of supervision. Because her long-term foster parents, bless their hearts, were a couple of white hippies fascinated with their idea of Native American mysticism, and they were way more into that than they were into raising the daughter they'd taken in because it seemed like a good idea at the time.

But it's possible they couldn't have done much to change her fate anyway.

The greatest regret of Anna Marie's life happened when she was 16. She had her first kiss with her first love, Cody. And absorbed his memories, bits of his personality, and enough of his life force to send him into a coma he hasn't recovered from to this day. Her parents had absolutely nothing useful to say or do about it, so she ran away from home.

80 miles from home, the mutant Mystique picked her up.

By now Rogue was lonely, confused, angry, and depressed. Easy to manipulate, which is how she ended up a member of the Brotherhood, and how she came to view Mystique as another foster mother.

She ran with the Brotherhood for awhile, doing a whole lot of stuff that she wasn't proud of.

But here's the thing about absorbing a whole bunch of people's thoughts, memories, and powers while working as a member of a terrorist organization. One starts to develop some empathy. More to the point, one starts to crack and scramble her mind like a big ole egg.

She started going mad, and in desperation, reached out to the X-Men for help in October of 2018. After Jean Grey gave her some heavy duty psychic adjustments, Jean gave her an invitation to join up. Much to the dismay of some members of the team, and to her former colleagues in the Brotherhood, she's accepted.

Personality

Rogue is a study in contradictions.

On one hand, she's the quintessential Southern Belle. On the other, she's got a wild, independent streak, fights hard, and can often be found covered head-to-toe in grease. She's highly compassionate, but she has a dark side. She unapologetically dresses and comports herself in a way that draws attention to her vivacious good looks, but is dangerous to touch. She's extroverted and easy to get along with, but is nevertheless deals with her fair share of loneliness, guilt, and insecurity.

And that's even before we start talking about the extra bits of memory and personality floating around in her head.

Those who don't know her well might accuse her of being fickle. Maybe even faithless. After all, she's switched sides. Just how trustworthy is she really? What is her loyalty actually worth?

And while her happy, down-home facade can make a person feel like she's their very best friend, in truth it serves to hide her true self away as effectively as her gloves hide her fingers. After all, if her life has taught her anything it's this: even if she's surrounded by friends and allies, the only person she can ever truly rely on is herself.

Character Sheet

ABSORPTION

Rogue can absorb the memories, personality, and powers of anyone she touches with her bare skin. They lose those abilities or see them significantly weakened for exactly as long as she retains them. They may be left weak, unconscious, or in a coma depending on how long they were touched and how much fortitude they had to begin with. If she holds on long enough, the powers she takes can become her own for months, or even years. She can even absorb powers from multiple victims. The ability to absorb someone's memories alone is nothing to sneeze at, as she can learn an awful lot of important information that way. This also means the powers she can access might vary wildly from scene-to-scene and plot-to-plot.

Disclaimer: This ability is governed by the game's consent policy and cannot dictate another character's reaction or actions without explicit consent to do so. Attempted IC use of this ability does not guarantee success.
