I'll be Kian again. Lemme find his profile... I've figured out how to explain his absorption powers better, so they make sense, and have rules to go by. I'm going to be late for Aikido though, so I'll just find the old version and post it for now.
Ethnicity: Semi-artificial second
Age: Unknown, estimated 18
Build: 5' 11" 175 lbs
Hair: Dark brown, crew cut
Eyes: Dark brown, hint of green highlights
History: Kian was born a Second to military parents. Though his original abilities are unknown, they manifested themselves at an extremely early age, possibly before his first birthday. His father, Mark, recognized this immediately, and brought him to medical specialists of various kinds.
Within a week, Mark was contacted by his superiors. Kian was to be brought to a special facility as the first subject in a test program designed to analyse and exploit the relatively new Second generation. Having been left no choice, Mark brought his son to the medical center.
Immediately, scientists began specific genetic therapy. By that time, the uniqueness of the Second genetic structure had been studied to the point that it could be manipulated with a certain degree of control. The effects of the therapy on Kian were to eliminate his born Second ability completely, while leaving the base sequences of the basic Second code intact.
Afterwards, there were two ways in which he could manifest a Second ability.
First is by injection of a specially prepared serum created using the genetic code of another Second. This serum would swiftly be incorperated by his system, thus allowing full use of the powers of any other Second, based on who's DNA was used. The effects would last from thirty minutes to several hours, depending on various factors. Depending on the abilities involved (some, the researchers found, don't mix), multiple serums could be injected, thus granting multiple abilities. Repeated injection of the same serum, over a period of time, would increase the time in which Kian would retain those powers.
The second way is through close physical contact. Whenever Kian is in close contact with another Second, whether fighting or other conact, he slowly incorperates and gains the abilities of what ever Second he is fighting. Powers temporarily gained through this method are usually weaker, and vanish within minutes. However, like the serum, powers gained in this fashion become stronger and stay longer with repeated and extended contact.
Kian was told none of this. He was raised, since before he could walk, on a specific military indoctrination program. Subjected to ardorous training, Kian's ordinary physical abilities excelled. He was taught many variaties of hand to hand combat. He was trained in handling of nearly all military equipment.
Soon to be instructed of his Second nature, and given powers multiplying his efficiency many-fold, he was a ruthless killing machine. Or was he?
You see, over the years there was another one, one not affiliated with the military, closely following his training, and providing instruction of his own...
