Hubert was born in the Talocan district to two "Socialites" as he likes to put it. When he moved out, he left for the Ruskol district to study telepad engineering in an effort to be around others similar to him. He is shy, an introvert, and exceedingly quiet. However, he is intelligent, logical, and able to think quickly. He is uncertain of his own abilities and judgement, resulting in most of his ideas not being heard. He keeps his emotions bottled up, and as a result is prone to occasional angry outbursts to which he will immediately apologize. If he does speak, it tends to be fairly frank which, when coupled with his quiet nature makes him seem cold at times. However, he is kind and tries to keep others happy before himself, often looking for non-violent and peaceful solutions to problems, but is willing to defend those he considers friends (or at least someone who deserves to be protected). Should someone get to know him, he tends to loosen up around them and speak more openly around them. He is not proficient in combat, but shows promise in setting traps.
Power (deep expl.): His power allows him to create shields (not conventional like bucklers, more like force-fields). The length of manifestation is based on his willpower (such as how determined he might be at the time). The strength is based on his concentration, but the more he concentrates, the less time it remains up. If he cannot concentrate (such as high fear that causes his thoughts to scatter), the power cannot be used at all. Using it also takes a toll on his mind causing mental fatigue, so if the power is used too many times, is held for too long, etc. he runs the risk of collapsing. The shield can also be of various sizes and shapes, but the larger or farther it is from him, it is weaker and cannot be held for as long. As a result, if it is needed he tends to place it 2-5 feet away from himself. The power itself is most effective in short bursts and is intended to buy time so he can escape or think of a way to win.
Evolution potential: The ability to manipulate shields after manifestation (such as vibrations to reflect projectiles or changing size)

Latest Scene: In Running For The Crime at 11:17pm January 25 2017:
Y'know what? I'm not getting new inspiration, so Matthew gets another chance.
Name: Matthew "Nines" Nero
Halo Color: Green with a yellowed outline
Specifics: Can temporarily bend light around an object to make it nearly impossible to see - typically speaking, he’ll usually use it on himself. The invisibility is not perfect, as movement can cause a distortion in the light as it attempts to adjust - however the distortion is subtle. The invisibility can only last for a short while (maximum of 10 seconds) and for every second he spends turning something invisible he has to wait three before he can use it again. Also, the larger and farther away the object in question is, the less time he can cloak it. While he himself is technically a “large” object he can use the full 10 seconds on himself, since he is the easiest target to hide.
Personality: Overconfident and not terribly smart. Tends to straddle the line between bravado and cowardice, but typically loyal to those who take him in. Despite claiming otherwise, he is aware of his intellectual shortcomings, so he will typically make an excuse to let someone else do the heavy thinking.
Backstory: Matthew grew up in a lower middle-class area of the Theophanies, with his father working as a musician in one of the local churches. Eventually, Matthew grew tired of the life that he saw was both inferior to the lives of his peers and the life he thought he deserved. He began skipping classes (since he didn’t see any point to taking them) and eventually dropped out of high school all together. After quitting school, he started wandering the streets and caught wind of the gangs in various districts. Excited by the sense of freedom they seemed to offer he began working towards joining one of them (mostly through social mimicry, since he believes that if he looks and acts the part, he’ll eventually be able to take on the role). He has yet to successfully join one of them, but will still claim to be part of one of the gangs around Anduruna. As to which gang it is, however, mostly depends on the time of day.
Physical Appearance: Mostly green in hue with yellow spots in various parts of his body. Height is approximately 5’7” (1.7 meters). Weight is approximately 130 pounds. Body type is wiry and thin, bordering on lanky.
Casual Attire: Black short-sleeve shirt with holes and rips “accidently” torn in them. Jeans and a red bandana wrapped around his left sleeve. Typically wears a baseball cap turned 45 degrees to the right.
Other: Strength is about average, intelligence is low. Agility and speed, however, are above average. His eyesight is around 18/19 so he carries around a carrier with thick rimmed glasses. Believing that they hinder the image he attempts to carry, he refuses to wear them unless he absolutely has to.
