My "persona" is an alien, a young male of a species that genetically enhanced itself over fifty-thousand years ago, and went through radical changes in their society and culture as a result... and a complete reversal of their technological base. Changes so radical, they no longer remember, or have any record of what their ancestors did to turn their species in a new direction. In effect, their past erased itself, and history started over.
... A natural low level telekinetic ability, boosted to far higher levels by the nano-genetic inclusion of a neurological crystal, embedded in the forehead as a glowing third "Eye".
... Related to the boosted TK ability, a natural "diversion shield". Protection against physical harm, up to deflecting bullets, so long as the "Eye" remains lit... subject to "feedback", if overstressed.
... An extra sensory ability, gained through the nano-genetic addition of seelers - Sensory Feelers, a set of three antennae, grown from the skull, tied into the visual centers of the brain, able to pick up images or "patterns" of energy, from thermal to quantum flux/Cosmic String, in great detail (subatomic level).
... Accelerated healing/regeneration. This, due to nano-elements in their blood.
... Enhanced lifespan, due to the nano-elimination of disease... perfect immunity.
... Reproductive enhancements... extra "equipment", both male and female, gives individuals total control over conception, without the need for external contraception in any form. No need for pills or condoms or surgery.
... Slightly altered biodensity, to increase the natural physical durability and strength inherent in their species, focused mostly on the skeletal structure, making bones difficult to break (more likely to crack and yet hold together under trauma).
... Probably a few other minor changes from their base species, due to the time involved, and the possibility of some slight evolutionary/adaptive instability in the early years/decades/centuries since enhancement. Fortunately, their ancestors were both thorough and wise, if quite brash in their actions... all that was done has proven genetically stable and viable, with no signs of any future problems. A success, in other words, spread by time and generations to every individual now living.........
Roose is a twenty year old male, just into his wings (males grow a stubby pair of battish wings, at puberty, used for display, to attract females). Though he is young, he has lived an active life (no TV exists on his Homeworld), and has learned how to handle the sword, staff, and conversion of metal into plasma (in the form of ball bearings, fired from the palms of his hands by TK energy). He's also a very good singer and dancer, his mother having trained him in the physical and martial arts... she also saw to it he got the best nutrition possible, so his wings would grow in perfect, and to lessen her son's chance of death (very rare, but the stress of that change can be lethal to a male, if he's not physically prepared).
Every one in a thousand males, when they enter puberty, they develop a higher level to their TK abilities, but this results in a dangerous instability in energy flow and control... this extra power is a gift, but, at first, is something of a curse. Just at the time when a young male has gained the ability to become a father, he cannot dare touch a female, in an intimate manner, for fear he may lose control, and unintentionally kill her. For a year, males "gifted" in this way must separate themselves from outside contact... a place you might think of as monastery, places of refuge, exist in remote areas, where "gifted" males can go, for training and meditation, till they are able to control their newfound power. As an alternative, a male can also leave the Homeworld, and go elsewhere for his temporary, year-long isolation. Roose ended up one of these "gifted", and chose to spend his year of isolation aboard his slideship, GreenDay, learning control by controlling his ship... his plan had always been to pilot a slideship, to see the universe, with his childhood sweetheart, Chorri, as his co-pilot and Lifemate. However, due to "events" not of his choosing, he is presently piloting GreenDay alone.
