Demeanor: "Kole" is a scholar, a connoisseur and an enthusiast all in one. His past experiences with the supernatural intermingle with his interests in fiction and with his vices, and come to the forefront in every interaction: "This one time, at astronaut camp…"
Nature: Driskoll isn't cold, or calculating; he couldn't be if he tried. He's a mad scientist of the variety that laughs out loud and monologues. He fits this stereotype, because he feels it makes him relatable and trustworthy, but it's not a conscious choice, and his power probably has a hand in it.
Description: Lanky, always in a labcoat. He wears fake glasses, but it's a bit of a psychosomatic thing; he feels his vision is worse when he doesn't have them on. Driskoll
Things your character is good at, things normal people can do
- Knowing Is Half The Battle 3 (Research)
- Speed Of Thought 3 (Initiative)
- Peeper Protocol 3 (Perception, Stealth)
- Technology Speaks To Me 3 (Tech. Knowledge, Programming)
- Watsons Wanted 3 (Investigation, Salesmanship)
These are things your character accomplishes via their power or monster
- Blueprints From Far Away 4 (He can build technology millenia ahead of the curve, gleaned from anomalies his sister attracted. He also knows how to build human-developed weapons and vehicles, gleaned from the minds of military scientists and engineers)
- Polyglotism 3 (All spoken language is translated as written language to him, and he can glean information and master any language in minutes. This includes languages that do not have written forms; his power creates text that can transmit meaning to the people who know the spoken language without coaching, so even animals can communicate with him.)
The side effect of your powers, not necessary.
- Stubborn: Kole has two gears: "normal" and "not", and once he's built up a theory for the second one, he won't drop it until he's proven wrong, repeatedly.
- The Pigeonhole Principle: Driskoll puts people into boxes. If someone refuses to be classified, he will force them into situations where their true self is exposed.
- For Science!: Driskoll will participate in anything advertised as an experiment.
- Oh, and he's mute.
List everything your character carries on their person here. Be reasonable.

Driskoll was born to Edgar and Natalie Moulin. He learned to read before he learned to speak, at 14 months, and that was the first sign something was weird about him. However, with his father away in the military, his mother only thought of it as a sign of great intelligence, and whatever impact it had on her perception of her son, it was lessened when he proved unable to speak, even years after the fact.
Five years later, his father got his leave, and nine months later, his sister was born and his mother had died from complications during pregnancy. His father only stayed as long as she needed, then moved the entire family to a military base.
Driskoll had taken to not speaking to his father at this point, resentful of the distance between them in whatever way he could be at 7 years old. He started school with a tutor in the base, and focused on that.
A few years later, his sister started bringing in strange creatures, asking if she could keep them, or if they could help them if they were hurt. None of these creatures were in Kole's books, and, after the one time she showed his father ended with a visit from the biohazard folks, he wrote to her to keep the findings quiet. He quickly learned the creatures' languages, as he had learned any and all languages he tried to learn, and, unnoticed by him, began to glean blueprints from the minds of the more intelligent ones.
He was eventually found out and took the blame for his sister. His father looked at him with disappointment, and Kole took it with a grin. The GWU got a call, and the rest isn't backstory.
