Demeanor: She definitely brings off an aura of geekiness and nerdiness, yet is incredibly shy around people, always seeming like she's trying hard to not be judged.
Nature: She has big aspirations and dreams, wanting to be able to go to MIT and work heavily with the robots she loves. She also has an innate fear of failure and will try to do everything she can to make people like her with a high amount of awkwardness due to the loneliness felt from her past.
Description: Gabriella stands at around 5 feet and 8 inches, has a dark skin tone due to her nationality, and is slightly chubby due to her lack of involvement or interest in sports. She has shortly cut auburn hair and bright green eyes, covered by goggles whenever working with her machines. She normally wears some kind of jeans with tennis shoes as well as a shirt that often depicts galaxies, scientists, or robots, and also will wear a labcoat while she works.
- Engineering - (4) Brains She can create things using the items that are around her.
- Computers - (4) Brains She has very clear knowledge of many things about computers.
- Academia - (4) Brains She has a very large database of knowledge on many types of fields. She understands science, math history, and can read and write well for her age.
- Medicine - (2) Brains She is able to apply bandages and help heal minor wounds through first aid knowledge.
Online - 2 - She is able to directly interface with machines, allowing the robots to have an AI with personality fitting what she needs the robot for, whether it's a small robot child she makes or a tiny little robotic spider she keeps as a pet.
Telekinesis - 2 - Gabriella contains the ability to move things with her mind! She must focus intensely, otherwise she may drop it. And the heavier, the harder.
Vision - 2 - Gabriella never could afford the money for a soldering iron, nor would her parents ever buy her one, so imagine her gleeful surprise when she found out she can fire small beams from her eyes that will do the same job, no wires required! It also gives her the power of a welder, being able to simply use her vision to create a high enough temperature to weld two things together.
Sparks - 1 - Gabriella has the power of static electricity, able to rub her hands together to create a spark to start one of her robots or be able to give a nasty enough shock from a close distance so she can get away.
Things that cause problems for your character, often side effect of your powers (or of having your powers), not necessary. Not just 'limitations' of your powers.
- Off the Grid: If she is away from computers or internet access, all of her powers weaken. (Mild)
List everything your character carries on their person here. Be reasonable.
- Smartphone she built herself
- Small cuboid block that can transform into a small robot which Gabby calls her son
- Money & keys
- Labcoat and goggles in her backpack, just in case.
And everything that they keep in their dorm at Fifth Sanctum. Anything that's not listed here or in the section above may be difficult for the character to retrieve.
- A very expensive self-built desktop
- Boxes of parts and random junk
- A small telescope
- A galaxy map wall poster
- A few figurines from sci fi shows like Doctor Who and Star Trek, as well as a fake blue lightsaber leaning against her bookshelf and some transformers toys on top of the bookshelf.
- Formal hispanic dresses and many decorations for different seasons.
Gabriella Ortiz was born on February 3, 2005 and grew up in a small town on the southern border of Texas and Mexico to a very conservative family of 4. Her mother, her father, her grandmother, and her older brother, Jose. From a very early age, Gabriella showed promise in the field of science by being able to pass many advanced math courses and start to build small robots with random things around the house by the time she was 7, the inspiration being brought by old reruns of the Transformers TV show, giving the idea that Robots can be friendly and do good things for people.
Her family, however, did not share her enthusiasm, as they despised robots for starting to replace people in doing certain jobs. So they needed to find a way to get Gabriella to never touch a robot again, and they figured doing this by actively trying to embarrass Gabriella about her robotic hobby, never trying to look impressed with her work, and constantly sending her to small camps and organizations to show Gabriella other courses, yet with Gabriella following MIT and other famous scientists online and having a subscription to Popular Science magazine, she would not be deterred, driving her to enjoy the company of her robots better than people, because she knows the personality of the robots she builds will not have the capacity to harm her.
She discovered her powers in the seven years she did robotics at home largely by accident. She discovered she didn't need to buy a soldering iron due to her ability to do the same thing with her vision if she focused hard enough, likely contributing to her power of being able to program a personality into select machines, effectively creating some of the first intelligent AI through supernatural means. She also has discovered that she can use a form of telekinesis to move object to her and away from her,greatly helping with a few of her projects, as well as discovering a power to generate small shocks of static electricity around her, being used to give a small kickstart to the machine she is working with.
She got into contact with the Fifth Sanctum completely secretly, having started research into them after discovering her telekinesis. After arrangements were made, Maria slipped out of her house in the middle of the night and ran away forever, taking her life in a much better direction, she hopes.
- She is bi
- She has a small robot son named TOD, who is very clingy towards his mother and will receive upgrades on his birthday, November 19.
