Casey shook her head. "It's suicide, that's what it is. People are gonna see it and think she's not humble enough and they're gonna try and beat her down."

(Okay, here's my character!

Name:Silvia Ortiz Chavez
Element:Silicone, Si, 14
Age:18
Personality:She is kinda of the shy type but once you have her confidence she can be very open and slightly a-dork-able. She is very self conscious and tries to turn attention away from herself when complimented or appraised. She is also not a huge fan of physical touch, if you try to touch her, she will immediately squirm away.
Appearance: nobody believes that she is the daughter of her parents, who are very dark latinos. She literally has porcelain skin. She has very Latina features,but she is way pale. She has long wavy hair that reaches down to the back of her knees (usually kept down or in a large messy bun on the top of her head. She has the big almond eyes that are a strange grayish brown and a petit mouth and a strong peruana nose. Hardly ever uses makeup (because with no bags nor acne, who would use it. Oh and she is super tiny, she is 4'11" and skinny.
Backstory (How did they find out they were Elementum, how did their family/friends react, etc): since she was born her parents believed something was off. There worries were confirmed when when she was 12 years old. She was playing in the rain when a lightning bolt struck her. They ran out to her, only to see that she was completely unharmed, just her clothing was a bit charred. Since human element studies didn't exist in Peru at the time so they had to move to the United States. There, when she was 13, on the way home from school, she was kid napped. She escaped about a month after but she doesn't like talking about it, only to her therapist.The man was found 2 yrs later when caught kidnaping another young woman of Latino descent. He was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison and later was killed by his prison mates.
Other:) She keeps her id as hidden as possible to not draw attention to herself. Likes to sculpt and sometimes, when alone, plays around with her tazer.(electricity helps her relax cause it reminds her that everything is okay and that nothing can hurt her now.) She also doesn't bruise at all for her element.

(YAY! Imma dive in then!)
Silvia burst out of the arts and crafts store, a roar of muffled shouts of anger following her. In her attempt to get out she fell down about a quarter mile infront of the group of elementian aquantices. She curled into a tiny ball of panic as people threw paint, glue, and whatever they could find at her calling her not only degrading elementian terms, but also a few suggestions to go back to her home country. all she could do was sob and grab the sides of her head as the normies continued chucking stuff at her.

Casey's eyes widened.
"Oh my god." She covered her hand with her mouth as she stared at the scene.

Carson frowned. "We've gotta help her!" He protests.

Silvia's breathing quickened as she felt the most dreaded feeling in the world coming on, a panic attack. She cringed in horror as she felt as her whole body start becoming hard as porciline, locking her body in the fetal position. She could manage a small croaked "Ayudame." before her face hardened as well.
One normie shrieked "Run! Looks like this one will explode too!" sending the whole army into mass hesteria. They all booked it, leaving the poor lonely statue by herself.

Carson rushed up to the girl and knelt beside her, taking care not to touch her but showing visible concern.
"Lady, hey, a-are you alright??" He asked.

Carson glanced over at the rest of the group. "We need to help her out!" He piped up.
