Ah, speaking of where characters hail from in the RP, am I doing a good job not having my character seem like an American?

Good afternoon Gentlemen.
Generally planning on entering the Historical Superpower RP Vol. II soon, are there any objections to this character?

Name: Conrad Hanley Ruto IV

Age: 37

Bio: Originally heir to the Ruto Family Fortune he was eventually conned out of his entire inheretance by his long time assistant Elmo W. H. Satson. At one time in the past he had built a world renound reputation for being intelectually well versed along with his skill and mastery of observation as a detective. After being thrust from the Ruto Manor Estate, he faded out of the public eye and into obscurity for many years. Now lives and works out of a back alley London apartment building. In addition to doing odd jobs for his landlord, he pays for his rent by taking whatever investigative jobs he can get. Became aware of his powers only a year and a half ago and as such has not fully perfected them, but does have somewhat of a comfertable familliarity with them.

Powers: Is aware of everything (And I mean everything) going on within a certain radius of himself regardless of walls or any other obstructions.   Usually averages about 25 meters, but has been known on at least one occasion to go up to 40. While not specificly limited, through practice with his powers this is the level he as currently reached. (Sound waves however are at this point fairly hard for him to uncode and at this point can only do so at shorter ranges.) It also Changes however depending on his level of energy. He can focus his energy enough at this point to expand his radius to a kilometer, but only for a snapshot's worth of time. Afterwards it renders his powers useless until her recovers, so he only does so during extreme cases.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

There are no objections from me. This knowledge is of sound and images right? Not other peoples' powers and thoughts, correct?

Oh and also, you had said you wanted to go in the style of a Film Noir... but try not to go too heavy on it as it is not the style of the overall RP. :)


Providing your response to this doesn't reveal something strange, I approve.

Going off of Pat's comment, I feel that your description is a little vague with saying "everything", and knowing "everything" could potentially be overpowering.

But otherwise, it sounds good and it's definitely unique among our set of powers.

You are correct. It is only in the realm of sound and images. I apologize for not making that clear.

And actually now that I know more about the time period (Very Late 19th Century), I'm planning on doing it in a more sherlock holmes-ish detective type manner so it fits in better. So there should be no trouble there.
Next to noir its my favorite style of detective.  ;D
(also Conrad Hanley Ruto is an anagram for a certain well known author... ;))

He hasn't been in Gabbly... send him a PM.

He probably is not away without good reason, he doesn't seem the type to do that.

Also, I have a planned shocker at the end of the story though it concerns Pat, and Pat only.....   >_> <_<
Pat, I won't tell you until the near end of the story. Just for funsies. ;D

Argh! DMB, no-one knew about DNA then, much less that it was the molecule of heredity. I believe the going theory at the time was that traits are passed down by proteins, and I doubt a schoolkid would know that. Maybe say "blood" instead.

A Handbook on the History of Modern Science
In 1869 Friedrich Miescher, a doctor in Basel, Switzerland, in 1869 isolated a new substance in the nucleus of the human pus. He called the substance nuclein and postulated that it is present in all cells and must be concerned with heredity. Miescher's nuclein later came to be called nucleic acid. Walther Flemming, in describing the chromosomes, introduced the word chromatin to indicate what they were made of. In 1881 E. Zacharia concluded that chromatin (the stuff of chromosomes) and nuclein (nucleic acid) were the same. Thus, by the 1890's scientists were declaring that nuclein (nucleic acid) was the basic stuff determining heredity.
