Welcome to ENDLESS DIAMOND SKY! We are an animation personified site set both in the animated world and present day San Francisco. A terrible darkness is spreading through the animated realm, driving everyone from their homes and into unknown territory that we know as reality. Now they find themselves at a crossroads: do they fight for their world or do they turn their back on it and make San Francisco their home?
What will you choose?
DISCLAIMER: EDS is known to cause death by soul-crushing feels.
Don't forget your feels bucket.
A longstanding member of EDS, Sammi has been here through thick and thin. From her first character on site to her most recent, she's acquired a roster just as colorful as she is. From Tiana to Boo and John Smith to Jasmine, she takes beloved canons and makes them into truly beloved characters.
MULTIPLICATION - the main part of Chris's ability is that he can multiply any one of his senses by the other. Just like a person who loses their sense of sight will find their other senses growing stronger to compensate, only in a more refined/controlled manner. The way he likes to describe it is like having a large corridor full of water inside his brain. Normally the water flows evenly through all the compartments in the corridor, until he wants to strengthen one particular sense over the others. At which point all the water is funneled into that one compartment, until it's full to capacity. Sometimes he might only fill it halfway and leave one or two of the other compartments empty, sometimes he'll fill it completely and effectively empty out ( or shut off ) his other senses.
BORROWING - To borrow someone's senses is not a fun experience for the person he borrows from. He has no way of making this quiet or doing it on the down-low. In fact you can very much feel him knocking around up there. What happens is that when he touches someone he has the choice to look through their senses ( this includes any extra senses they might have )but when he does, it means that the person themselves is shut off from them. Basically if he's borrowing your sight, you essentially go blind until he lets you go. It can be traumatic and very invasive, which is why he doesn't do it very often. What this ability allows him to do though is see, hear, feel, ect whatever you're feeling. Alone it doesn't seem very useful when you think about it. After all his own senses are amazing so why would he need to 'borrow' someone elses?
MENTAL SHARING - Here is what makes the last ability important, A person's senses are directly connected to their memories. In fact your memories are designed to be triggered by certain environmental stimuli. Which is why when he decides to borrow someone's senses he also gets a direct shortcut to their mind. The example I gave in his app is that if he doesn't recognize a person, he can look through someone's eyes and then follow that connection to their memories until he finds out that person's identity. This is why having your senses borrowed is so invasive, because he can't shut this aspect of that ability off. Once he's in there and making that connection he's at the mercy of that person's mind. Whatever memories are triggered during this experience, he'll witness, whatever thoughts happen as a direct result of what he's doing/seeing/hearing/ect he'll know. Trust me it's not as thrilling as it sounds.
PAIN RELIEF - Since Chris can effectively shut off his sense of touch ( and therefore all the nerves on his skin ) he has the ability to completely ignore pain. Either by numbing himself before it happens, or shutting them off after the fact to stop the pain in its tracks.
EXTRA SENSE - he has a sort of extra/radar sense. It's a defense mechanism that allows him to appear functional even when he's not. It's like a radar mostly and it keeps him from bumping into things when he can't see or ignoring people when he can't hear. It's not foolproof, but it does help keep him out of trouble. If it's been particularly perceptive he might even hold a conversation with someone even though he can't hear a word you're saying. it all kind of depends.
SHARING - Not particularly sure about this one yet, and so he has no idea he can do this or might have the potential to do this. But since he can borrow someone's senses and funnel his own around inside of himself. It makes sense that he could technically do the reverse with someone? Basically this part of his ability allows him to show someone what he does and what it feels like. It's obviously not a process for the faint of heart. He's had his entire life to practice and grow used to having extreme senses, so don't be surprised if it knocks you on your ass the first few times.
ELECTRICITY - even if he has touch turned off completely and can't feel a damn thing. enough electricity flowing through his body charges his nerve endings and make them feel the pain he doesn't want to feel. Of course we're talking heavy duty electricity, not little shocks and stuff like that.
TOUCH/SEX - he loves it, and the reason for that is because of his sense of touch. when he sleeps with someone chances are at some point in the process he's going to shut everything out and turn touch up x 5. This makes it extremely addicting and puts him in a very vulnerable position, as he's basically high and drunk all at the same time. When the deed is done he'll just lie there for hours needing to recoup and slowly drag his other senses back to life.
OVER SENSITIVITY When you can hear five times better then anyone on Earth, having someone yell in your ear is like getting hit in the face with a train. Similarly if he has touch turned up all the way and something traumatic happens the shock from the pain could either knock him out or stop his heart completely.
DELAYED REACTION - Though he's a lot faster at it then he used to be, the switch from one sense to another isn't instantaneous. Depending on how much he puts into the sense he's using, it could take longer to bring the other senses back up. A delay that makes him vulnerable in that he could be blind for a few minutes, or his eyesight could be out of focus. Things that could waste a few precious seconds of critical reaction time.
No particular reason I chose his name. It's just the name that appeared in my mind when I decided to make him. Chris means 'Carrier of Christ' while James means the 'Supplanter' and Carter comes from 'transports things by cart' none of which have anything to do with Chris himself. SO yeah, basically just picked his name cause that's what he gave me.
Reason for nickname:
How old does he/she appear:
he can pass for a teenager in the right circumstances
Tall, slender, kind of on the lanky side, but muscular. not super toned.
Shape of face:
blue, it grows more intense when he focuses his eyesight. the pupils also grow wider to catch more light
Glasses or contacts:
his vision is beyond perfect. please.
pastiest of pasty white boy. once he had a farmer's tan. laugh with me
Various scars; the Y incision on his chest, large burn scar on his right side that extends from just below his hip to about mid chest. , along with various other smaller scars all over his body.
nothing really stands out, except maybe his nose has that bump you get when its been broken before.
Type of hair:
floofy, with lots of large curls, but he straightens/gels it a lot
usually its been straightened, or cut short so you can't see the unruly curls, but you can still tell that if he let it go he'd look like a puffball
voice with a slight southern twang if he's upset/angry. he was raised in the middle of bumfuck nowhere after all. something is bound to stick.
according to him he's a 1000 on the 1-10 scale. I think the narcissism knocks him down to a 9 personally he hates me now
depending on what he's doing he can be considered blind or deaf. but I wouldn't necessarily consider that a disability. seeing as his senses can flick off and on at will ( and even when they're off completely he has a sixth sense that allows him to still be somewhat aware of his surroundings. ) so yeah no real disabilities here
Usual fashion of dress:
long sleeves, jeans, polos, v-necks. he likes comfortable clothing, but he also lowkey tries to hide the fact that his body looks like he barely survived a train wreak. so he gravitates towards long sleeves when he can.
a long sleeved grey v-neck shirt, a dark blue almost black denim jacket, matching jeans, and a pair of slightly scuffed nikes. oh and his shades, he loves his shades.
Jewelry or accessories:
a silver wristwatch ( very pricey, ), and on occasion various rings, bracelets, usually made of silver or soft leather
Good personality traits:
does he have any? jk. he can be pretty loyal when he wants to be, and he's not a bad guy at heart. just extremely self absorbed. if he considers someone a friend he'll do almost anything for them but generally won't make it obvious. so usually he'll try to play his kindness off as a fluke or like someone else was doing it rather then him. He's got a reputation he'd like to keep thank you very much.
Bad personality traits:
Extreme self confidence bordering on Narcissism. He's the type of guy that can easily make fun of himself and not feel a hint of anything about it. He's quick to banter and even though he doesn't act like it, can get easily offended.
Mood character is most often in:
Sense of humor:
a guy in the town he lived in got electrocuted to death and shot right on out of his shoes. Chris couldn't stop laughing for about a month. sometimes he'll think about it and still laugh, despite his aversion to electricity
Character’s greatest joy in life:
being in the middle of an orgy and not knowing where one end starts and the other begins.
Character’s greatest fear:
being autopsied alive ( lived it ), getting electrocuted ( also lived it )
considering he experienced both those things, it's not surprising really
What single event would most throw this character’s life into complete turmoil?
Either the scientists finding him again, or his Aunt Natalie returning from the dead
Character is most at ease when:
surprisingly when he's trying not to strangle Jem during Mario Kart
Most ill at ease when:
he's got all his senses focused on one, and is in that vulnerable state
he doesn't really get enraged, but probably when he's being tortured
Depressed or sad when:
when he dreams of the 'autopsy'
basically live for today. fuck tomorrow, and who even remembers what happened yesterday
If granted one wish, it would be:
that all the people after him would simultaneously drop dead
i think it's pretty obvious why
Character’s soft spot:
he doesn't have one. himself. aunt natalie maybe sort of jem
Is this soft spot obvious to others?
he really hopes not. though the one for himself probably is
his self confidence, it makes for a lot of optimism and an ability to take a hit and keep going
Greatest vulnerability or weakness:
he's not exactly the smartest barrel in the bunch, or at least he keeps telling himself. for someone with super senses he doesn't pay nearly as much attention to his surroundings as someone in his situation probably should.
not going to find Aunt Natalie
letting himself get addicted to touch
honing his senses in the middle of bumfuck nowhere. that time he stole 2 mill from some rich douche's offshore accounts and gave it all to a nonprofit organization helping rehabilitate fighting dogs. ( he liked to bet on dog fights smh ). then he ruined the man's credit so bad he probably can't get a one dollar snow cone.
he didn't have an orgy yesterday. progress
Past failures he/she would be embarrassed to have people know about:
he made out with a real old dude at a party once. woke up the next morning dressed like a hooker with heels and everything. kind of great, kind of doesn't want anyone to know ever.
would you want people to know about that time you had to walk to your apartment in six inch heels a red sequined dress and fishnets? I don't think so.
Character’s darkest secret:
he killed to get out. he killed a lot. and lets just say some of those scientists got a little karmic justice. but he blocked the memory
Does anyone else know?
he doesn't even really know. so i doubt anyone else does either
Drives and motivations:
he doesn't really have any. he just does what he wants when he wants to do it
probably something along the lines of 'try not to get arrested for stealing'
Long term goals:
doesn't really have any
How the character plans to accomplish these goals:
just going out and getting shit done.
How other characters will be affected:
well, someone might get robbed?
Chicago, though he remembers his time in Texas a bit more clearly
Type of childhood:
His childhood was alright, though if you let him tell it he'd probably say it sucked. His Aunt kept a very tight leash on him. She didn't let him do much of anything that could potentially give them away, and often made it a point to keep him away from anything involving social interactions. Which meant that for a lot of his really early years he was home schooled. Aside from that the worst part of his childhood would most likely be his later teen years. When he was stuck on a tiny farm in Texas, completely cut off from the world. It maybe drove him just a little mad.
He had a goldfish once, it lasted like a day. ( He kept touching it cause it felt cool ).
A woman singing, though he can't recognize any words or make out a face or anything. He just knows that the voice is soothing and that he thinks it might have been his mother. His Aunt always said his mother was a good singer.
Most important childhood memory:
Arguably the first time he realized what he could do. He was about four or five years old, and he realized if he didn't like something he could just...make it go away. Didn't like a smell? Turn that off. Didn't like a sound? Same thing. Something hurt? Not anymore. And so on, and so forth.
Not only is it a fundamental moment in his past as he's realizing his own capabilities, but it was a big stepping stone in the person he would be later. He realized, at that very young age, that he didn't have to put up with things he didn't like if he didn't want to. That the world, its sensations, all of that was pretty much his for the picking
Believe it or not Charles Xavier from the X-men comics.
As a child he wanted to be a magician more then anything, probably cause he thought he could do anything.
He never completely finished high school. As he was sent to the middle of nowhere and not allowed to enroll because he was supposed to be 'laying low'. He did make it a point to get a GED when he moved back to a city. If only because he felt his Aunt had cheated him of it.
Aunt Natalie didn't make much, and neither did the farmers. SO he lived straddling poverty in his youth.
Currently living with:
Does the occasional homecrasher count as a roommate?
don't trust him with anything that is alive, please.
Bordering on rich, but never quite there ( on purpose )

Most prized possession:
himself. yeah he is that guy
robbing people, sex, picking fights
Plays a musical instrument?
Yes actually, he has literal perfect hearing so he can pick up almost any instrument and play it by ear.
Plays a sport?
once upon a time in highschool he was into basketball. he might shoot hoops in the park if there's a game going on but otherwise not really into sports.
How he/she would spend a rainy day:
funnily enough as soon as it starts raining he goes up onto the roof of his building, pulls up a chair, cranks up touch all the way, and just sits in the rain. then probably gets pneumonia later, but hey it was worth it. If it's thundering he might stay in side and just turn up hearing and listen to the rain.
he buys what he wants when he wants it. he's not really materialistic so generally he'll stick to only the basics. he doesn't buy just to buy pretty much.
not really. he can't stand the smell or taste of nicotine

his biggest drug is his sense of touch. he doesn't need anything else to get him high as fuck
What does he/she do too much of?
sex: talk about sex, think about sex, ect
What does he/she do too little of?
think about people other then himself, probably. he does it. just not as much as he should I guess.
Extremely skilled at:
bullshitting and sarcasm
Extremely unskilled at:
he doesn't have many but if you catch them he'll fiddle with his collar a lot if he's nervous or scared. it might look like he's just plucking at his shirt but really he's running his fingers over the upper half of the y-incision on his chest.
Usual body posture:
kind of slouched, he stands straight but he's got that lazy/laid back posture that makes him seem non-threatening. up until he wants to pick a fight and socks you in the jaw
smirks, half smiles, he likes hand gestures when he's really into a conversation.
if he's all but one of his senses off you can usually tell because even though he reacts and acts like he's completely there, it's almost mechanical. like second nature kicking in as opposed to someone actually reacting. sometimes the reactions might come a second or two delayed.
Optimist or pessimist?
he's pretty optimistic for a guy who's been technically dissected
Introvert or extrovert?
Daredevil or cautious?
daredevil. what is this caution thing of which you speak? ( though he has been trying to be a little more careful)
Logical or emotional?
Disorderly and messy or methodical and neat?
it depends his kitchen is almost neurotically clean, and the spices are even alphabetized. but the rest of his apartment looks like an explosion went off
Prefers working or relaxing?
he loves his job, so I suppose working. but relaxing is pretty high up there on the 'fuck yea' list
Confident or unsure of himself/herself?
-choked laughter in the distance- he is so unbelievably confident that it's kind of nauseating. he can literally walk out onto the street in nothing but a pair of fishnets an a bikini and still grin like he owns the world.
How he/she feels about himself/herself:
if he went to church he'd thank god everyday for gracing the planet with his birth
One word the character would use to describe self:
One paragraph description of how the character would describe self:
If you want me to be honest, I will. I know I'm not the nicest guy on earth. I've got my issues, but I just don't think it's my job to cater to other people. I do what I want to do, when I want to do it. Life is too short and boring if you don't say what you mean and keep beating around the bush. So yeah, I'm an asshole. Yeah, I use sarcasm probably more then some people breathe, but if you don't like it that's not my problem. I like parties, I like wild nights, and I especially like sex. I'll flirt but if you're not into it don't expect me to waste my time sticking around. I don't act like this cause I'm not aware, I'm literally hyper aware of everything. I'm me because fuck you that's why.

all that matters to him is some people want to punch him and some people want to fuck him. ( his favorites are the ones that want both )
What would the character most like to change about himself/herself:
Opinion of other people in general:
he's attracted to people that are more like him. he barely notices anyone else

as of yet, no one. maybe the scientists who fucked him up
anyone that'll let him into their pants

Person character secretly admires:
Most important person in character’s life before story starts:
y incision - received during surgery. commonly seen in autopsies this scar takes up the entire length of his torso. it's not that old so the skin is still jagged and rough.
burn - the largest is the burn that takes up a portion of his right side; starting just below his hip and ending about mid-chest.
minor scaring - chris has various scars littered across his body, though the worst of the damage was done while he was being tortured, there are a few that he'd had before or got after. he was stabbed once in the thigh, and he's been cut various times in bar fights too. these he has no problems talking about or showing off.
bones - a good portion of the damage he received while under the 'care' of the scientists wasn't external. though they attempted internal studies eventually, they started off by pitting him against men and women who's abilities made them unnaturally strong. forcing him to fight and take damage in an attempt to see how much pain he could handle. as a result an x-ray of his body would probably show you that his skeleton has been through the blender once or twice.
psychologically - physically chris was tortured for quite a while. longer then he'll probably ever want to remember. mentally that does something to a person. he's got a debilitating fear of scalpels and incisions. is often startled awake by frequent nightmares in which he's lying on a slab looking at his wide open chest as the doctors reach their hands in. a fear that often makes him avoid hospitals even when he really needs it. electricity is also not a friend and even a tiny shock can make him just shut everything down. yeah he acts cocky and sure of himself and he's not self-conscious about his scars, but he'll outright avoid questions if they probe too much. thankfully he's pretty much blocked out half of what happened, and unless something sparks up a memory he's going to keep living life like none of that was real.
touch - as someone who's overly sensitive to touch the only thing that he's self conscious about in regards to himself, is how the scars feel. scarred skin is rough, it's uncomfortable. he hates touching it, so catching him with his fingers tracing the scar on his chest or the one on his side is rare. it happens, but it's usually in private and he's almost always very tense and edgy if you catch him at it.
