Background

Scott Michael Reynard got his powers while being tormented by bullies, wishing desperately for a way to escape while holding his bloody nose and sore gut, trying to catch his breath. Suddenly, to everyone's surprise, his body became a grey mist as he floated backward through the wall, right into the girl's bathroom. Naturally, further chaos and embarrassment ensued.

Shortly thereafter, his parents decided to move up north to be near his mother's aging father. Scott didn't care much for the thought of leaving the South and everything he'd grown up knowing, but the thought of starting over where no one knew he was different was appealing. Of course, that didn't last long either, as he found himself in one situation after another that needed his special 'talents'. Eventually, he found himself part of an odd but tight-knit group of friends who helped and looked out for each other, each with their own special abilities.

Personality
Scott is motivated primarily by his curiosity and a desire to help others, even when he stands to gain nothing and even when his help is not desired. Being a Dungeons and Dragons player, he often thinks of himself as 'chaotic good', though he doesn't really try to exemplify the idea behind that concept. He just tries to do what he thinks is right while keeping himself as safe as possible at the same time. His greatest joy comes from studying languages, and even though he's only 16, he speaks more languages than most linguistics professors. Scott suspects his intelligence and gift for languages is part of his mutation, but this hasn't been clinically tested. One of his greatest desires is to travel to the areas where the languages he speaks are spoken, to see their cultures and ways of life for himself .Scott decided to call himself Haunt because of his unusual Fearsome Visage ability and the spooky sounds it makes. His older sister says it sounds like he's haunting the place.

Powers

Haunt's powers stem from his alternate form, that of a wispy, wraith-like being. The form grants him the ability to drain the essence of other creatures and weaken the structures of objects. He can also become incorporeal and invisible, though remaining invisible tends to tire him quickly. He can see in the dark, and has some slight resistance to injury, though he is by no means difficult to injure. His main defense is becoming incorporeal.

What Scott doesn't know is that his abilities aren't completely caused by his mutation. His spirit has lived before, in previous lives, bound to the earth by a dark prophecy. That is the source of his linguistic proclivity, while the magic that binds him to earth combined with the mutant genes he inherited from his mother's father to create his haunting abilities. This is why the Black Skull Cultists seek him, to turn his abilities to their own ends in fulfilling the dark prophecy. The nature of the prophecy and his mother's aging parents are left to the GM, along with the details of his father, mother, and older sister (though my thought for the sister is that she's a senior).

Appearance

As Haunt, he resembles a shadowy ghost with indistinct features, with the lower half of his body trailing off into a wisp. He can solidify or not, but his lower body stays wispy, even if knocked unconscious.

As Scott, he looks like a typical teenager, often dressed in worn jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers. He also favors flannel shirts with the sleeves rolled up, and left open to show the t-shirt beneath.
