Gematria[ NICKNAME/ALIAS ]
N/A[ AGE ]
17[ GENDER ]
Female[ AFFILIATION ]
H.E.R.O.: Part-time[ APPEARANCE ]
Megumi has long grayish hair, pale skin, and a rather slim build. She prefers to wear whatever's comfortable, but she does make an effort to look at least somewhat fashionable when outside. She also brings along a large quadrupedal dog-like machine named Gem that acts as a pet, which can also transform into a bipedal android body that provides her the android body for her hero identity Gematria.[ PERSONALITY TRAITS ]
EMOTIONLESS: At first impression, Megumi doesn't seem to possess any emotions. Her tone of speech is monotone, and tends to move in a somewhat sluggish manner. The truth is that she just has a difficult time showing her true feelings. Get to know her a little, though, and it'd be easy enough to know what she's thinking, assuming she doesn't just tell you outright. [ BIO ]
BLUNT: Megumi isn't afraid to speak her mind and will be direct in her methods and intentions. However, she tends to be quite curt and literal-minded in doing so, which tends to result in some initial misunderstandings until she is asked to explain what she truly means in her messages.
OBSESSED WITH KNOWLEDGE: Megumi has an avid interest in learning more about the unknown, particularly about science, magic, and everything in between. She is unhesitant about trying new things in her experiments with the two, but will at least maintain a level of caution to try to prevent any catastrophic events.
Megumi was born in Castleburg, as the daughter of a CEO of a large video game company. Her mother died in childbirth, and Megumi was often left with a nanny to take care of her. As a result, she was often left with plenty of games and other material desires to keep herself occupied, but no one to actually spend that time with. She poured herself into these games, and soon discovered her powers when she got absorbed into the controller she was holding, finding herself inside the game itself. She found a whole new world to explore, and didn't come out until the nanny turned off the console, which forcefully ejected herself from the game and back into the real world.| MISCELLANEOUS |
It was then that Megumi found a new interest: coding. By being inside games, she could see how the game functioned, and alter it in ways it was never intended to function. She learned plenty within them, and her knowledge of her own ability continued to grow as well. Her father merely continued to send her the latest tech and games, thinking it would make her happy. Her attention turned to the various magic systems that often existed within fantasy games, and while she had fun experimenting with them in said games, she then began to wonder if it was possible to bring them to real life. Try as she might, though, she just couldn't do it.
One day, while attending an real life gaming event, it fell under attack by a rampaging Leftover. She hid behind a table, but it was tossed aside and was about to be attacked, only for it to be bound up and quickly dispatched by arriving heroes. Her attention focused onto one hero in particular, Rune, who had used some interesting symbols to perform the job. In the crisis, she had found the solution to a problem she had been dying to solve: performing magic, or at least something similar to it. Unfortunately, she was quickly taken someplace safe by other heroes. Due to Rune being a D rank hero, it seems that there was little interest on him, making him difficult to track down. By the time she did, however, it was revealed that he had perished in battle. She was dismayed, but eventually learned to get over it. She then made it her new goal to become a Hero. In her mind, she thought the best way to find more heroes like Rune was to go out and be a Hero herself. And if she was able to help people along the way, that was even better.
It should be noted that when she is electro-surfing within a machine, her personality becomes a lot more expressive, as if whatever normally inhibits her emotions disappears.[ RANKING ]
D[ POWERS ]
ELECTRO-SURFING: By being in contact with a machine that uses electricity, Megumi's can leap into it, her body transforming into a mass of electric particles that travel within it freely. Within these machines, Megumi can take control of its functions and freely study its structure and coding, and can even modify said coding to suit her needs. Firewalls and encryptions pose little obstacle to her, but power limiters can hinder her movement. She can also forcibly short-circuit the machine, though this causes her to immediately be ejected (or forced into another area of said machine, if applicable) afterwards as that part would no longer be functional.[ PHYSICAL STRENGTH ]
Megumi found it unnecessary to work out very much apart from doing any potential heavy lifting when working on her tech. She has her other abilities to compensate for it instead.[ AGILITY ]
Same reason as above. [ INTELLIGENCE ]
Considering her expertise in technology and desire to learn more, it's safe to say that she is quite intelligent. [ DESTRUCTIVENESS ]
In any tech-heavy environment, such as a server room, she could be devastating if she wanted to, but other than that, she doesn't possess any powers that are generally destructive.[ LETHALITY ]
Megumi doesn’t use lethal methods to fight crime.[ ENDURANCE ]
While she may stay up late at night, either to play VR games or to conduct more experiments, she does not possess much more endurance than other normal humans.[ EFFICACY ]
She requires technology to use her power, but she fortunately lives in Castleburg, where there are robots and other machines aplenty. [ SKILLS ]
CODING / HACKING[ EQUIPMENT ]
GEM: The 4-legged machine with a dog-like AI to act as Megumi's pet. Bought by her father in an attempt to give her company. Megumi customized and improved upon it with time, giving it a few more special capabilities. Within it lies several yards of cable, suitable for grappling, trap-setting, constraining, etc. The cables are also interwoven with nanomachines to allow it to maneuver around more freely than simply being shot towards a target. Of course, Gem can also transform into the bipedal humanoid body that uses Megumi's hero identity name: Gematria. The face plate is actually a screen, allowing for a wide variety of facial expressions and emoticons to be displayed.
