- [Samuel Grayson]
Full Name: Samuel Oliver Grayson
Nickname(s): Sam, Sammy, Sog, Odd

General Appearance: Samuel Grayson is a young who looks pretty average. His face doesn’t carry any form of discerning marks, and while his physique is above average it’s not anything that really catches the eye. He stands a little over the average male height, but he can seem taller due to the confident way he carries himself. His hair short and black, usually left unkempt, though it holds a rather rugged look that is passable.
In terms of everyday attire Sam likes to keep casual and easy, only rarely slipping into anything nice (which mainly is due to lack of money/being able to afford nice clothes). Casual clothes for him is usually jeans, tee-shirt, shorts, so on and so forth, very simple.
For his hero outfit Sam continues to like to keep it simple. Using a variant of his portals he is able create a black cover over his body, though not his clothes. It gives him a silhouette look, though many of his features are still present, you can tell his facial reactions and where he is look, as well as his hair. The black substance acts more like a cover, a coating to his body. Over that he wears a white, long-sleeve shirt, darker jeans, and a pair of black running shoes. Additionally, he wears a grey and white striped sweater/hoody that has a white fur lining around the rim of the hood and sleeves. The silhouette black substance can touch upon his clothes, turning them black, when he is using his ability excessively. The only feature of him that is not black is the eyes, which become two dots of a milky white color, though they almost float in front of where his eyes should be and they have no real distinctive marks.

General Personality: Sam, above everything, works his hardest to the be a hero. He almost always tries to keep a friendly and confident expression about him, being someone people can look up to and rely on. He’s a bit of doofus, not knowing much about tech, romance, and anything above a high school education. He is also a very determined person who will work to complete whatever task he has set his mind to.
Family is probably his strongest belief, putting them above most anything else. His little sister being the main force that pushes him forward and is his reason for being so kind and friendly.
He generally carries a very welcoming and joyful expression, a product of his time at working at the circus.

Powers and Abilities:
Silhouette: When activating any of his other powers Sam is covered by a strange shadowy coating which stains his skin a pure black color. His features are still discernable, facial expressions can vaguely seen, and his hair still has shape, but is also just stained black. His eyes/irises cannot be seen, rather they are just two glowing white dots, though expression can still be seen. Additionally, his insides and blood also take on this color. The black color will only stain his clothes if he excessively uses his abilities.
While in this form he gains a slight shielding against physical and mental attacks, as well as slight protection from the cold and heat.
Portals: Anywhere within a sixty-foot radius Sam can open connecting gateways/portals to which anything can travel through. He must always open two portals and they must always be the same shape and size. He does not need to do any sort of physical action to make a portal, but he finds pointing or motioning helps himself aim it (The portals are not shot out, they just form, but he still refers to it as aiming). If he cannot see where he is opening a portal it does take more energy to do so, but he remains able to (Though he does try not to in case of hurting someone or opening it inside a wall which would result in him bonking his head).
Split: Sam can open up a different variety of portal which have a red outline. The number of portals does not need to be equal so long as there is just one entry point. Only inanimate/non-conscious, solid objects may enter this form of portal.
When an object enters the entry portal it will be split/multiplied through any other portal with a red ring around it (Example, sticking a wooden stick through the entry point would cause there to several copies of the stick throughout each of the connecting portals.). Any object that enters this portal cannot fully leave and after a few seconds if not pulled out, it will slide out unless it held in place by something, though eventually the force of the portal will either break the object or force the thing holding it to break.
Exhaustion: When using his abilities Sam must use his own energy to conjure them, which in turn causes him to grow tired, gaining exhaustion until he could potentially pass out. Silhouette form drains the least energy, regular portals only a bit more, and split requires a good deal of energy.
Range: The total range in which Sam can spawn portals is a 60ft radius, he can’t extend any further than that.
Headache: When having a portal open for more than two minutes Sam will start to get a headache, increasing in intensity the longer it is open.
Rainy Day: When out in heavy rain or submerged in water Sam has a harder time using his portals, there is some sort of interference. Using portals takes up more energy and his range is reduced to 40ft. Strangely enough, he does not suffer this debuff when in the snow or other kinds of weather, only the rain.
Skills and Talents: Juggling, acrobat, people skills, cooking, and sowing.
Equipment: A staff made from Caliburn, wallet, a small booklet titled “Hero’s Guide”, a pocket-watch, and an old locket.
Current residence: Dorms of Lion's Brigade
Birthplace: Small town not too far from Detroit
Memorable Figures: Lil’ Sis, Mom, Dad, old teacher, circus crew
General History: Samuel Grayson was born to a rather poor family who had a rough time getting by, though they did manage to. For the early years of his life Sam was only child, though soon the happy family would receive a new member! Sam would have a little sister. While they all loved the new addition to their family, it was a strain and one that would soon cause a harder burden upon their lives. What little money they had would be spread thinner.
Being a young man of fifteen Sam made a tough choice and decided to drop out of school to find a job to help his parents pay for the cost of living. While it was hard at first, Sam finally managed to find a job and at a circus no less! It was a traveling circus and the ringleader actually was close friends with Sam’s father. Though reluctant at first, eventually his parents agreed and let Sam join. With the money he earned he was able to keep his parents above water and so that his sister could have a good life.
He worked for the circus for two years, earning a great deal of skills mainly revolving around acrobatics! He loved the high walk, juggling, and generally performing for large crowds. However, his time here wouldn’t last too long. After an accident of sorts Sam managed to save himself by use of his ability which he had never known he had. He had begun to start to learn how to use it at the circus, but soon the situation at his home would change and the money earned at the circus would not do it.
He decided to quit the circus and pursue something that was better paying. During his search he decided to become a hero for profit, earning money for doing the tasks of a hero! He managed to earn more money this way and better provide for his family. He’s been at for a year, though he has yet to make a real name for himself, though…who knows what the future will hold for him.
