Creative, iconoclastic and maybe a little full of himself, Christopher Muse is Triage, a young mutant with the powerful gift of healing. He can restore someone to health with a touch, regardless of the depth of their injury. Rumors have it he can even raise the dead, although there might be complications in that regard. He has a relaxed, chill demeanor and a strong sense of style.

Christopher Muse is a slender young man in his late teens, dark-skinned and with a rather impressive set of dreadlocks atop his head. He tends to wear slightly oversized sunglasses, tinted and reflective, although he pushes them up onto his forehead now and again. He's handsome enough, with full lips and soft features, maybe a bit babyfaced for his age. His eyes are large and expressive, with long lashes. His ears are pierced multiple times and there's a stud in his tongue. He tends to slouch and has a bit of an insouciant expression about him, vaguely bored and distracted.

He dresses stylishly, favoring oversized or puffy jackets in a variety of colors. He wears button-downs or longsleeves underneath, usually repping some brand or artist. He sometimes carries a long martial-style bo staff and he seems to know how to use it. He has a wide variety of sneakers and usually has a cell and a pair of earbuds on him.

Christopher Muse grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a college town. Both his parents were academics and he had a pretty straightforward, upper middle-class life. His powers likely came along well before he knew it, until the day one of his friends broke his leg in a skateboarding accident and Christopher's touch instantly healed him.

Christopher struggled a bit with his gift, knowing it could draw a lot of attention and not fully understanding how it worked. He mostly just tried to live a normal life until a mutant conflict in the area near him drew him in and brought him to the attention of Xavier's Insistute. He transferred the next semester and has been trying to become a more effective part of a team and has even taken up the bo staff as a weapon so he's not completely useless in a fight. He can be a bit self-centered and lazy now and again, but he's a good kid at heart and he keeps getting better.

Christopher's a regular guy, without a lot of trauma or crazy mental complications to go along with it. His personality tends towards the informal and he's a bit of an intellectual, having grown up with educators for parents. He's fairly self-confident, sometimes borderline arrogant, and probably feels a little untouchable, as you might imagine for someone who can't die by conventional means. Still, he's not a big party animal and is far from hypersocial. He doesn't trust easily and tends to keep himself in reserve until someone's earned his devotion and interest. He isn't particularly fond of violence and has a very long temper, more likely to walk away than trade blows with someone.

Christopher's primary power is healing, infusing a target with excess life force and causing their tissues to spontaneously and rapidly regenerate. Unlike a healing factor, Christopher's abilities work almost instantly, restoring his target to perfect health in a matter of seconds, up to thirty seconds for truly severe or mortal injuries. He requires physical contact with his target and the ability to focus his concentration, along with a receptive physiology on the part of the victim (i.e. traditional Terran, carbon-based organic lifeforms). The more healing he does in a short period of time, the more exhausted and weakened he will become. Anything more than ten major healings will result in his powers beginning to flag and him growing exhausted to the point he'll need a full night's rest (eight hours of sleep).

Christopher's body possesses an abundance of life force energy. Mild injuries, scrapes, bruises, fractures and the like, will restore themselves almost instantly if he's wounded. More serious injuries still won't take very long, although it may take a few moments of concentration for him to restore a serious gunshot wound, collapsed lung or the like. The hardest part is that he has to concentrate to do it, which may not be particularly easy if he's in pain. While his healing is virtually immediate, he does not possess the superhuman constitution someone often gets with a healing factor - even a simple stabbing can put him in debilitating pain, even a minor concussion can render him unconscious (and while he'll heal while out, he won't automatically wake up). He is immune to all forms of disease or sickness and will even rise from the dead if he's actually killed within a matter of a few minutes. Such incidents are quite traumatizing, however, and he's likely not to be in much shape to keep fighting after a resurrection.

Life Sense:
Christopher can sense the presence of living things within his vicinity for about a twenty foot radius. He has a diagnostic touch, enabling him to understand the flow of life force through a living being and enabling him to see injuries, sickness and the like before he restores them. He does not need to diagnose in order to heal, but it can still be a useful skill. As with his healing, diagnosis requires direct physical contact.


Even if someone or something is dead, Triage can infuse it with sufficient lifeforce energy to cause resurrection. The more recently dead and physically intact, the more he can properly restore them. He cannot regenerate tissue damage suffered post-morten, either by decay, autopsy or embalming. Anything more than dead for a week will result in him raising a relatively mindless zombie who will operate for only a few minutes before returning to death unless he reinvigorates it. If the person is recently deceased, within the last twenty four hours, he can fully restore the person, who will be able to recover and operate normally once again. Raising a mindless rotter is similar to a major healing, while a full resurrection from death will exhaust him entirely and require him to rest for at least two days in addition to recuperation for any other "healing energy" that Triage spends.

*** NOTE! *** PCs and major NPCs can be restored only as part of an approved tiny plot.

Christopher's a bright student who attended elite private schools for most of his upbringing. He has a strong academic background, especially gifted in science and history. He has a solid knowledge of cultural cornerstones like Shakespeare and Greek Myth. He can speak Spanish and understand Latin.

Christopher's been skateboarding since he was eight years old. He's capable of performing trick skates and low-level stunts on a board. While he's not an X-games level athlete, he's pretty impressive compared to your average slacker.


Since his powers don't have much offensive capability, Christopher has been training in martial combat, specifically fighting with a bo or quarterstaff. He's still about a brown belt in terms of skill, not a master by any means, but he can hold his own against civilians and he's getting better all the time. He has limited unarmed skill as well, but probably won't get far in a fistfight.

Trust Fund:
Christopher comes from an upper middle class background and remains on good terms with his parents. He has a trust fund of around one hundred thousand dollars that he can draw upon for expenses, although he does have to answer for anything too pricy. He can cover basic expenses pretty easily, though, and he resides at the school so rent and food aren't major issues.


Christopher is a senior enrolled at Xavier's Institute. He can call upon the faculty and students there for help and support and has access to the attached facilities and resources.

Christopher's abilities work on conventional Terran, carbon-based physiologies. Aliens, artificial beings, supernatural creatures and the like may be impossible for him to heal (or sense with his life senses). Extremely large animals can also be very difficult - healing a beached whale, for example, might exhaust him entirely, if he could even manage it. In addition, old injuries that have long since healed or scarred on their own will not be restored by his abilities. Thus, if someone were, say, an old professor who's been wheelchair bound for many years, Christopher couldn't restore your ability to walk.

In the same way that he grows exhausted with extensive use of his powers, the powers themselves become less effective. His healings will take longer, require greater mental effort, and be overall less effective until he has time to rest and recuperate. This is especially true for his self-healing capabilities. If he were to push himself too far, he might put himself at risk or be leave him unable to do the work that he needs to do.

Too much healing in a short period of time, especially major healings of life threatening injuries or even full resurrections, can quickly drain Christopher's energy and require him to rest and seek sleep. Ten or more major healings in a day will likely leave him extremely drowsy and slow.

While Triage's powers are potent, they are defensive and healing rather than offensive. Put simply, he has no superhuman way to hurt or attack an enemy in combat. He's learned a bit of martial fighting, but he's still only just proficient. Put simply, he can take a lot of punishment, but he can't really dish much out.

As great as his healing gift is, certain levels of harm are such that even he can't heal, whether it's on himself or on others. Decapitation, destruction of more than 2/3 of the brain tissue, disintegration of more than fifty percent of body mass, all of these are points of no return. If the killing method is not removed from the equation, the healing will not take: he cannot heal burns if he's still in flames, cannot heal drowning while the target is still submerged, etc.

Not So Tough:
While he will come back from death and regenerate injuries very quickly, Christopher does not have the enhanced constitution and pain tolerance that tends to come with a traditional healing factor. As a result, he can be traumatized or overwhelmed by injury much more easily than a person with his healing abilities might be expected. If he's knocked unconscious, he'll still heal but will stay unconscious as normal. He doesn't like pain and, even if he's restored, can be in trauma or shock as a result of severe physical harm if he's subjected to it.


Triage's healing abilities require physical touch and concentration to work on others. If he can't make contact or if he's in constant pain or distraction while in said contact, he won't be able to use his abilities on the subject.
