Jacqueline "Jackie" Whitelock is a mutant who possesses incredible mastery over both telepathy and telekinesis. At first developing the ability of empathy at a young age, Jackie could pick up on the feelings of those around her. As she grew older, more potent powers manifested. These abilities caused her pain and anguish for a number of years and she worked diligently to control them. With the help of others, Jackie was able to not only move on with her life but use these talents for the benefit of mankind. Currently working with UNTIL to assist around the globe as a superhuman specialist and psychologist, she is also known as AURA, ready to help the costumed champions of the world fight against villainy.



History
Aurahistory2.png



Jacqueline ("Jackie" or "Jacks" to her friends) Whitelock was born to a lower upper class family in London, England, to ex-rock musician Calvin Whitelock and his wife, former British model and television host Linda Whitelock. Jacqueline had a relatively normal childhood for someone whose family still skirted with fame. She was doted on by both parents with love and affection despite her father's ongoing bouts with alcoholism (resulting in his disappearance off and on to several rehab facilities for treatment). Jacqueline was a lovely child and showed a great interest and aptitude in a number of things.

When Jackie turned five, she did not understand it at the time but could instinctively predict how someone was feeling. She could often tell when her mother was upset or if her playmates were possibly lying to her. At such a young age she was not aware that she was a mutant and the power of empathy revealing itself. It was often noted by her teachers that Jackie was merely well behaved child and highly attuned to the well being of others, and no alarm was given for what would reveal itself in later years.

When Jackie reached puberty at age eleven, her second power manifested: telepathy. Young Jackie was alarmed and at first scared that there was something terribly wrong with her. It was something she could not drown out... every person, everyone she crossed open their mouths to say one thing, but she would 'hear' something very much different in her mind. It consumed her, and it was at this time she learned of her parents' crumbling relationship through an accidental telepathic scan of her mother during one of her father's absences. Jackie found solace the only way she can and retreated into her own world which led to her discovering music.

Two years later, at age thirteen, Jackie's life turned upside down with her telekinesis activating. After what was a rough day for a teenager during school, Jackie's anger got the better of her. Her secondary school classroom was destroyed and several children were inadvertently injured from her powers as they were brought forth. Being a child of people who still managed to garner press from time to time, the media pounced on this story. Scared for the safety of their daughter and fully aware of the ravaging she would receive through the press, her mother reached out to someone to help. Thankfully, she found such a thing in the United States at a school known as the Bracen Institute, which dealt with children who were born with 'unique gifts'. After quietly paying off several families and media outlets to keep what transpired under wraps, Jackie was taken out of her home to go overseas.

The next few years at the Bracen Institute were a difficult transition for the young Jackie. Quiet, reserved, and more intent on being alone now more than ever, the instructors diligently worked with Jackie. It wasn't easy as her powers, especially her telekinetic ones, proved dangerous to wield in those first few years. Jackie took care to ensure that she maintained a level head about most things and remained focused on her studies, or else bad things often followed in her wake. With the care given to her at the Institute, however, Jackie slowly came out of her shell as she took control over her powers. By age eighteen she graduated with a new found understanding and purpose as she now could more or less wield her abilities proficiently.

With her powers enabling her an advantage over understanding human nature and emotion, Jackie went to university back in Great Britain. She earned a degree in psychology, and in this time she looked more into the world wide peace keeping organization known as UNTIL. Fortunately she was accepted and took her place within its ranks. Using her abilities to assist her work as a counselor and psychologist for meta human affairs, she also took on another guise: that of a costumed heroine. Creating a costume of white and pairing it with the magenta color her mental abilities seemed to relay when she used them, she called herself Aura. Jackie spent the next few years in the Great Britain UNTIL branch before finding herself transferred to the United States in Millennium City.

One of her first tasks was to be assigned alongside several agencies and super heroic groups that abound in the area, most notably the Protectors of the World. The first few weeks working with them was especially trying as they were in the midst of what would be known as The Eugenics War. The leader had betrayed them it appeared and the entire group was extremely distrustful of not only each other but of Aura as well. She served alongside them in an active role during this time, most notably assisting Sparrowhawk when she was rescued from her mental subjugation by members of the Apotheosis Project and helping Artifist regain her magical abilities. When the war was over and a relative amount of peace had returned to the Protectors, Aura asked to stay on with the group in a long term capacity as a Reserve Member while still working closely with UNTIL stateside.

Aura continues her duties and pays visits to the Barlowe from time to time when her professional abilities are required and keeps her allies mentally fit. If the chance for her to join along on field work as Aura presents itself, Jackie seems more than fine with that, too.




Appearance
Auraappearance2.png



Jackie Whitelock is a woman who appears in her mid to late twenties with an offbeat, alluring demeanor about her. She has an attractive, almost modelesque face with high cheekbones and red, full lips that contrast against her naturally fair complexion. At 5'7", Jackie is a bit taller than the average woman and weighs 130 lbs, with a thin frame that has still seen the inside of a gym. Her hair is naturally dark black and is worn short (slightly under shoulder length) and stylish. It looks rather messy though its obviously the result of some styling on her part to achieve. Jackie is often dressed comfortably but has no issues when it comes to being glam and having to look more fashion forward. In her free time she can be found in vintage wear or concert t shirts, sporting everything from Rolling Stones to Radiohead. During business hours she dresses accordingly, pulling her hair back and wearing sensible skirts and blouses to greet those she works with.

As Aura, Jackie wears a primarily magenta- colored metallic uniform with a low, half bust neckline. It sports a mask which is also magenta in color that allows her lower face and hair to be seen. White fingerless long gloves, a white sectioned metal belt and white leggings contrast her outfit's main color. She wears a magenta skirt that falls to a cape of sorts in the back. A white metal neck piece, connecting to her top, extending into a large white high collar behind her head. A soft purplish- magenta glow can be seen about her which flares up when she aggressively utilizes her telepathic or telekinetic abilities.



Personality
Aurapersonality2.png



Jackie is a fun, engaging young woman who is an intent listener, but not afraid to 'tell it like it is' if the need arises. This demeanor allows her to do a good job in her chosen profession as she displays a great deal of care and concern for others. Jackie has a very positive attitude that she often presses on others, especially in high risk or stressful situations, in order to get the best out of them. Although she prefers to avoid confrontation and can be quite passive overall she is also highly astute at pointing out things that concern her. Jackie tends to be the light in the darkness, always trying to push ahead and keep others in a positive mindset through pep talks or small jokes. She is somewhat of a tomboy, even in her late twenties, and prefers the company of men as friends as opposed to women. Several times her open sense of self and her friendliness has created mixed signals to her male acquaintances though she's quick to respond appropriately. Jackie enjoys British humor and can be rather self deprecating at times in jest. While she's aware of her outward attractiveness, its not something she concerns herself with much, preferring to be rather low key. She's probably one of the best people to have by your side if you want someone to talk to... it's not just a job, it's a way of life for her.



Powers/Skills
Auraps.png



Heerogaura.jpg

Aura's mutant ability allows her empathic, telepathic and telekinetic powers. While the empathic abilities are always 'on', her other powers when in use create a purplish-pink glow which ebb and flow depending on how strong she is using it (hence her name, 'Aura').

Aura's primary passive ability is empathy. This allows her at all times to effectively sense a person's overall demeanor. It could just tell her that someone is happy, or angry, or confused. Aura has no control over this power and as such it is constantly active. While this is not the most powerful of abilities in the super heroic world, it can establish if someone is human versus android, possibly alien or not of this plane. Aura uses this talent mainly in conjunction with her psychologist training, allowing her to better establish a rapport with those she assists and help them deal wit their issues in the most responsive and direct manner.

Aura's second talent, which she manifested at age eleven, is telepathy. Aura can read thought and discern others' intent. Many people have been trained to prevent attacks or intrusions on their mind, which Aura often feels is a 'fun game' to figure out how to access them. She can directly mind link several individuals at once, removing the need for communication devices when all parties are in a mile or so of each other. The ability to attack the mind itself is also an ability Aura possesses, though it's not something she always feels comfortable doing as she views it as a severe intrusion of one's person. She can and does, however, have the power to create short bursts of energy which stun others which she has no qualms with doing in the field of combat. Aura can also telepathically heal others wounds to a degree by cutting off pain receptors and allowing the brain to instantly go into a mode that regenerates itself. If necessary, she can submit others to her will and 'charm' them to cooperate in planting suggestion, but it is also a talent she uses as a last resort. She is not above slight mental subjection though to the enemy (ie the 'Jedi Mind Trick'). Jackie also has the uncanny ability to temporarily pull skills from a person's mind. For example, she could pull the ability to know how to fly a plane from a pilot. This talent is only temporary, resetting itself when she sleeps, her mind releasing the information during a time of rest.

Aura's most potent physical ability is telekinesis. Jackie's telekinetic powers manifested at age 13 and were originally wildly uncontrollable. With great amounts of training, Aura has been able to rein in her use of this power, though she often does not use it to its full potential due to her own fears of its use. Aura is more of a defensive fighter, often establishing shields and such to protect others. She can design impenetrable fields around both herself and others in a nearby area. This is not to say that she lacks proper offensive abilities... far from it. Aura has been extensively trained to use her power to lift and throw extremely heavy objects, forcefully use a person's body against itself and other talents. She can use her abilities to effectively 'fly' with speeds of around 300 miles per hour while creating a frictionless aura about herself to protect her from harm. This talent can extend to others as well, allowing her to bring along several others as long as she is in close proximity.

Aura has several skills at her disposal to aid her. She has received triage training and has standard UNTIL training. Aura tends not to need to use it, but she graduated top of her class in unarmed combat training and second in marksmanship. While these pale in ability to those heroes that dedicate themselves to such endeavors, she is no slouch either against 'foot soldier' type adversaries if and when she needs to show off such traits. Aura often uses techniques she has learned as a psychologist to help her and others deal with high stress situations.



Weaknesses
Auraweaknesses2.png



Aura has a few weaknesses that the enemy can be exploited:

  • Ineffective Powers: Aura's empathic and telepathic abilities do not work on creatures lacking sentience. For example, the undead and robotic entities are immune to these traits. Alien life forms may be too foreign for her to understand without spending time to acclimate properly to their mental patterns.
  • Only A Human: While Aura has several mutant powers at her disposal, she also lacks the enhanced physical attributes many enjoy. She can be easily removed from combat if her mental faculties are not prepared for a fight or those she is fighting possess heightened reflexes that can get a jump on her.
  • My glasses! I can't find my glasses!: Jackie is near sighted, requiring contacts or glasses to see.
  • Dedication to Duty/ Fear of Abilities: Aura is actually a vastly powerful mutant, though she tempers her abilities greatly. She does not use her telepathic traits invasively unless it is the enemy, and even then holds back. Aura's telekinetic upper limits have not been explored properly due to them being wildly chaotic as they escalate and are extremely unpredictable. She tends to go with an 'average' use of her powers as the norm, not wanting to put herself or others in possible danger.



RP Hooks
Aurarphooks2.png



  • Aura is a psychologist and often finds herself working with the super human community.
  • As an UNTIL agent, Jackie can be found all across the globe.
  • A reserve member of the Protectors of the World, Aura can often be a contact person to reach them or to get assistance with.
  • Aura loves music and is very musically inclined. She would always welcome others with the same interest.



Trivia
Auratrivia2.png



AuraAlhane.jpg
  • Obviously takes some inspiration from heroes like Jean Grey/ Marvel Girl.
  • The name 'Jacqueline/ Jackie' is actually a homage to one of my favorite heroines (also British, mind you), Marvel Comics' Spitfire.
  • Loves to go to the shooting range to release stress.
  • Is a cartoon fan. She prefers Japanese ones from the 60s and 70s.
  • Plays drums for a part time, local all-female Millennium City band, The Wendy-Gos.
  • Huge music fan with all kinds of interests as far as genre, but moreso older bands than current offerings. Enjoys live concerts, especially reggae and punk shows.
  • Plays piano, bass guitar and drums.
  • Writes a column for an official UNTIL newsletter monthly, called ASK AURA, where she dispenses advice.
  • Aura is a bit of a playful show off with her powers at times, preferring to use them creatively in a visual manner.
  • Still retains communication with several instructors of the Bracen Institute.
  • Has some training in ballet.
  • It is her dream to visit Graceland, though she's not a huge Elvis fan.
  • Though she's comfortable in social settings, has a tendency to be a loner when off the clock. The reason for this is that she enjoys the ability to not have to block out anyone's thoughts or feelings.
  • Speaks with a south English upper class accent. Spending her teenage years in the United States has lessened its inflection.
  • Has a penchant for eating junk food when stressed out.
  • Has had a string of extremely bad relationships, due in equal parts to her powers and being tragically unlucky. Often falls for the 'loser' and 'bad boy' types... while she can be great at dispensing help, she's often poor at taking that advice herself.

"She's an interesting character, a like the tone of her background."- Killer Spider

"She's rather...bubbly. Provides excellent battlefield obstructions and offensive-clears, though. A valuable asset to have on hand." - Armory

"While I personally am not fond of telepaths in the slightest, Aura is a multi-faceted member of the Protectors, capable of not only giving solid advice, but providing sizable defensive and offensive support when needed on the field." - Razira

"Aura's been an asset to the Protectors overall. She had an uphill battle when she joined us as a counselor during the Eugenics War and I think few trusted her. I guess I myself have had a change of heart from first discovering she was assigned to the team by UNTIL. Aura is in a unique position to help others off the battlefield and keep their heads together. The ability to destroy things with her mind is simply a bonus." - Sparrowhawk

"In this day and age, the mental health of those that spend their days combating evil is not only endangered but neglected, and for that reason we're lucky to have Aura. An uplifting and effective presence, whether or not she's in the middle of the action." - The Peacemaker

"Being completely honest, I was really tense about my first session with Aura. I was really surprised at just how easy it was to talk to her. I have a hard time opening up to people. Well. Opening up beyond just being opinionated about certain things, anyway. She made it easy to just talk about my problems. I'm really glad we have someone like her available." - Tesseract
