Introduction


Name: Samantha Jeanne Falton
Nickname: Sam, Sammy
Age: 18
Birthday: May 17th, 1998
Astrological Sign: Taurus
Gender: Cisgender female, very liberal gender experience
Sexual Orientation: Panromantic pansexual
Past/Bio:
Sam was born to David "Hydra II" Falton and Violet Riley, who divorced when she was three. Sam has little memory of the turbulent incident, and cites her childhood with her father as being happy, if a bit lonely or awkward. Inheriting David's odd physical quirks, but not his metahuman powers, she was somewhere between a marvel and a black-sheep all through school, and had a hard time making friends. She paid her naysayers no mind, though, and lived an active and involved life with her friend, another metahuman named Cherry. One mystery always nagged at her, though: her father's sketchy source of income.

During the February of her senior year, in 2016, Sam was abducted by the Reach, along with hundreds of other children her age. To draw out her dormant metagene, Sam was brutally tortured, most often with electricity. She was deemed a promising case when her coloring warped and her body became immune to, and then dependent on, the electrical shocks. Intrigued, the Reach moved her to more intensive labs, and visited different forms of torture. This progressed for five months until late June, when the Team finally evacuated the lab and found Sam and a few other surviving subjects. When Sam awoke in the hospital, she showed obvious signs of electrokinesis, and was recommended towards STAR Labs. However, Sam was deeply traumatized and near-hysterical--especially after catching wind that all the other subjects from the same lab as hers were comatose, or had died after being saved. She refused to consent to being examined by STAR and returned home with David, Violet, and her stepfather Cole.

She experienced abnormal growing pains for months, usually wrought by depressive episodes, until her powers eventually surfaced full-force in September. She timidly began to practice with them until noticed by the Flash, who put a word in with Black Canary and offered Sam a spot on the Team. The invitation put Sam's father on edge and, fearing that Sam would find out about his assassin work, discouraged her from going. Sam disagreed. She didn't see herself as having any other option, and felt that she could drive away her fear that she could have saved her fellow subjects if she used her powers to do good. She joined the Team, now christened the Teen Titans, in early November.

Sam was at first very quiet and hollow, as she still felt the effects of being a Reach captive and was still not quick to make friends. Eventually, she did bond with her Teammates, most notably a series of younger teen girls with more noticeable personalities. To boot, she also met Extend, an Exiary representative doing mitigation work for the Reach. Though naturally on guard because of Extend's profession, Sam was more receptive to Extend's pleas that he was on Earth's side than her teammates were. They eventually struck up conversation, which became friendship, which became light flirting and a feeling that Sam had found someone to spend the rest of her life with. Though her powers still irked her, and she suffered severely from PTSD, she felt on the road to recovery for the first time in a while.

Then came the solution to her father's "job mystery". David had been putting the word out in the supervillain scene as Hydra II that his daughter was not to be approached, but that couldn't protect Sam from learning the truth on a mission in Vladivostok. Sam immediately recognized David's appearance and biosignature, and wasted no time demanding an explanation. The stress of the mission, and of learning of her father's lifelong lies to her, triggered a latent power-- her black-electricity bioform. Unable to contain herself, Sam accidentally absorbed the electrical forces of everyone around her, teammates and her father included, to a near-lethal extent before her fellow electrokinetic Killowat could stop her. Devastated to learn what she had done, Sam confined herself to her room and refused to use her powers again.

With help from Extend, Black Canary, and her Team friends, Sam reluctantly jumped back into the game, and soon met Cameron Mahkent in Belle Reve. Cameron and his friends were a sobering example of other teens with super-assassin parents, and it made Sam realize that she was immensely lucky to have been protected by her father in her childhood. Though still not beyond mission-to-mission bantering terms with David, their family relationship is slowly rebuilding anew.
 



About Her


Personality: Sam's true personality is a bit difficult to decipher, because she is very good at adapting her behavior to fit different situations. Around her family and friends, Sam is known to be quiet unless acknowledged, but attentive and sweet when such traits are called for. She is somewhat opinionated and prone to snark or quick wit, which she has no qualms using to protect the dignity of herself or her loved ones.

Though Sam is prone to putting up a fearless, laid-back air, there are times when one can see her underlying self-hatred and unease, usually in the form of self-deprecating humor or refusal to interact/try things at certain times. Though she will use her ghoulish appearance to her advantage at times, and eventually grows into it, she is presently self-conscious of how intimidating she may look.

When Sam is angry, she is at her most selfish, and most terrifying. Though not easy to provoke, if allowed time and huge amounts of stress, Sam will act with extreme, almost savage, levels of violence. She is unforgiving and hostile around people that have upset her in a some way, and is not above petty revenge. She's very big on "treat others the way they treat you", rather than "treat others the way you want to be treated".

Her design is so frigging wicked, I really like her hair since it looks like you could hug it...(and get shocked. xD) and of course, it's fluffy. Her jacket is another one of my favorite things of her design, it makes her look so cool. Asuna (Smile 1) [V1]
