"I don't know you but I know you're annoying," Lana muttered. She wasn't afraid of him. She wasn't afraid of any of them. No, she felt weirdly comfortable with this group; they were the only ones on the planet who would understand what it was like to be the subjects in a freak experiment. "It's good to know a name though."

"And you are uneducated and misguided, as all of the others here are." Randy muttered in response to Lana.

Ben subtly stepped away from Randy and his creepy clawed hand. Ben really did not like being touched, even under normal circumstances.

Ryleigh took a deep breath, willing her broken ribs to heal themselves. She still felt sore, though; training would have to wait for a little while. "I'm Ryleigh, if any of you care," she said with a wave of her hand, the other hand rubbing her shoulder. "Though I'm better off known as The Seraphim."

"The hero?" Sam asked, brows drawn together.

(Ryleigh reminds me of Carol Danvers)

Randy was crossing a line, but Lana held back. She'd used her powers twice so far. They were so easy to use. She could probably get away with a third time. But then again, maybe not. She turned her attention to Ryleigh. "Yeah, you strike me as a hero sort. How'd you get that name though?"

<**omg. Although having just seen Captain Marvel I can definitely see it -_-**>

Ryleigh nodded. "Yeah, I'm super heroic," she boasted, resting her hands on her hips again. "And I dunno. I fly around and blow stuff up? Sounds kinda warrior angel to me. Or, at least, that's what the general population think."

"Ah. You are one of those who cares more about the wellbeing of the lesser populace than about your own kind, hm?" Randy raised a brow. "...If we are using heroic titles, I am Jotun. But I do not associate myself with 'heroes' like this Seraphim."

Ryleigh rolled her eyes and let her mouth fall open in an exaggerated fashion, moving her hand like a puppet, mocking Randy's speech. God, these people were something else.

“Can someone please help shut Randy up?” Lana groaned. This guy’s attitude was irritating her.

(She's giving me Brianna/the Breeze (Gone) vibes :P)


Ben eyed Randy warily, backing away slowly, "Just because we have these weird powers doesn't make us superior," Ben siad quietly; it was a dangerous kind of thinking, in his opinion. He looked around at the others and sighed, "how do you all have so much control?" he inquired, sound a little frustrated by his own failings. Maybe there was just something wrong with him.

"If it makes you feel better, you probably have more control than me," Sam said to Ben. He clenched his fists as he spokexm, unsettled by the idea of using his powers after so long.

Ryleigh shrugged. "By practicing, maybe?" she said to Ben. "I've been using my powers almost daily for a couple of years."

Ben looked at Sam the Ryleigh, nodding once; at least he wasn't the only one, "Well...I guess I really haven't had much of an opportunity to practice," he said. He'd been locked away for a long time and before that, his parents really hadn't encouraged him to practice

Sam pursed his lips but started wandering away from the group, looking around the room. No way did this look safe enough to practice his powers in, even if he wanted to. It'd probably explode.
