General Personality: While Serpentine was once no more than an animal, running on instinct, they have developed a symbiotic (although some would call it pure parasitic) relationship with the human who's body they currently pilot. When they took over their brain they absorbed large chunks of their personality, memories and knowledge and as such have developed a much more human attitude to the world. They crave money and power, just like the human did. They crave posessions, status, love, sex and even soaked in the human's gender ideals and sexuality. While the feelings are still alien to it, it has been quickly adapting and soaking more and more knowledge out of their host as time goes on. Eventually, one must ask, who is controlling who.
Most prominent personality trait: Ambition.

Worst traits: Greed and jealousy. Serpentine cannot stand to see someone have something they want and they never seem to be satisfied with what they have.
Likes: Serpentine genuinely enjoys scheming and has become enthralled with human politics, both national and interpersonal. They have also grown to enjoy places where the humans gather to socialize and party, such as nightclubs. They enjoy demonstrating their power and material posessions. Money is one of their favourite things.
Fears: Water. Badgers. Heights.
Goals: Currently, Serpentine is trying to slither their way further up the social ladders of the world.
Habits: Serpentine's human host speaks with a lisp on their S's and will occasionally flick their tongue.
Current faith or religion: N/A
Current superstitions/quirks: Big believer in things that bring bad luck, such as walking under ladders or breaking mirrors.
Alignment: Neutral evil
Marital status: Single
Powers and Abilities:
Constriction: Serpentine is a tube of pure muscle, capable of easily restraining, crushing and squeezing the life out of most humans. All of it's powers are much more effective against a target it is currently touching/constricting and some of them are only available if they are constricting a target.
Mind Reading: Serpentine is capable of reading another person's mind and retrieving information and thoughts. Against their will if they have to.
Psychic Communication: Serpentine is capable of opening up channels between 3-4 people, allowing them to communicate through their thoughts.
Psionic Energy: Serpentine can control psionic energy, capable of unleashing it as headache inducing bolts or crippling, mirgraine inducing beams.
Psi-Shield: Serpentine can erect a psychic shield around his and some other people's heads, rendering them immune to psionic powers, unless they are facing an experienced or powerful telepath, in which case it will merely make them resistant.
Psionic Senses: Serpentine can sense nearby minds and mental energy, meaning that sneaking up on them is incredibly difficult with psychic shielding. As they can sense psionic energy they are able to tell whenever someone is telepathic or when people are communicating telepathically.
Vertigo: Serpentine is able to disorientate people and induce dizziness.
Serpentine's existing powers become much stronger and they gain access to even more psionic abilities if they are making physical contact with the target, becoming capable of the following.
Mind Control: Serpentine is able to try and take control of someone's body while they are constricting them. The longer someone is constricted by them, the harder it is the resist. Once Serpentine takes control, the harder it is to break free. His current host has been sedated and controlled for months.
Memory Manipulation: Serpentine can devour, absorb, destroy and alter the memories of someone they are constricting. The longer and tighter they have the target wrapped up the more they can absorbs and the more devastating alterations they can make. For example, they have been connected to their current host for several months and are able to almost completely alter their life's memories.
Psionic immunity: While attached to a human, Serpentine is immune to psionic attacks and invasions.
Hypno-Venom: Those bitten by Serpentine's fangs will be injected with a hypnotic toxin. This toxic will force them to obey simple commands without Serpentine having to be present. Serpentine can more easily invade the minds of those subjected to the venom as it weakens their will and there is no range on telepathic abilities that are targeting those who have been poisoned.
Serpentine can only use some of it's psionic powers if they are making physical contact with the intended target. If the target manages to free themselves or if someone pulls the snake off then the effects will rapidly fade, depending on how long they were being constricted. (I.E if they JUST grabbed someone and had absorbed some memories from them, those memories will return and fade from Serpetine's head much faster than if he were to be detached from his current host, who will be unable to psychically recover for several weeks atleast.)
One may try to resist Serpentine's attempts to violate their mind by actively thinking of something completely different and complicated, such as doing long-division or receiting the bible.
Serpentine's telepathic communications have a limited range. 40 metres for strangers up to a mile, depending on how intimately they know the person they're trying to contact.
Serpentine's powers are weaker if they cannot see their target.
Serpentine can only link up to 4 people with a telepathic comms system.
Experienced and/or powerful telepaths will have an easier time circumventing their psionic shields. Some may even be able to destroy them.
Serpentine can only 'channel' abilities into one person at once. If they want to channel a continuous stream of crippling psionic pain into a target, then they must stop targeting all other non-constricted targets. The only exception to this is those who they are constricting. Serpentine can 'channel' their power into someone they are constricting as well as another target with no added effort.
Serpentine cannot speak any other languages besides English at present, meaning that any thoughts in a foreign language will be undecipherable.
Without a host, the knowledge Serpentine has absorbed from the previous one will gradually begin to fade away over the same amount of time the pair were linked, until they become nothing more than an animal once again.
Serpentine gradually absorbs aspects of whoever they are attached to, including the fears, desires, gender identity, sexuality and even personality aspects. They cannot stop this, even if they are aware that it is happening. Their current host was an ambitious criminal thug who had dreams of rising to the top and living a life of luxury and power and after several months of symbiosis, that is *exactly* what Serpentine wants too.
Serpentine's powers are useless against those who cannot be mind controlled, such as robots or the undead.
Skills and Talents: Serpentine's current host was a capable fighter and knew how to shoot a gun. Despite never having limbs, Serpentine has absorbed these talents too. Serpentine is an excellent liar and manipulater.
Equipment: Serpentine has a fully automatic machine pistol.
Current residence: In a high-end apartment in New York. Serpentine keeps the actual owner heavily sedated with venom and uses them as a house keeper.
Birthplace: A laboratory.
Memorable Figures: Dr. Kim Mera. The other subjects (1 - 10).
General History: Subject 8 wasn't born, no, Subject 8 was created. An extremely controversial genetic experiment lead by a Doctor called Kim Mera. It imvolved breeding animals with the DNA of enhanced humans. It took years but eventually some of the subjects began surviving. Subject 8 was the result of a telepath's genes being fused with an already genetically altered Venomous Python. While it was originally difficult to tell whether or not the experiment had had any effect, brain scans of Subject 8 showed that mental activity was off the charts. Those who were monitoring it reported hearing hissing in their heads and as time went on and his powers grew stronger, some of them even reported suffering from headaches and migraines. One even reported dreaming of the snake, weaving in hypnotic patterns. This was considered proof enough that Subject 8 had been a success, along with Subject 4, a pyrokinetic baboon, and Subject 9, a teleporting tiger. All other subjects were either complete failures or considered too dangerous, such as Subject 6, a self-duplicating wasp, and had to be terminated.
Word got out about her success and Kim Mera was being being met with both praise and controversy. Dozens of animals (and some believe humans too) died during her experiments and some chastised her methods as being extreme and inhumane, but she had proven that human DNA, including enhanced humans, could be fused with animals for a variety of results. The military could have lightning fast attack dogs, invincible rhinos or invisible snakes. The possibilities were endless. Unfortunately, her success drew attention. Her surviving subjects became incredibly valuable to rival scientists and criminals alike.
It's ironic but in her attempt to move them to a more secure location she exposed them. As part of an armored convoy through the city they were being moved to a fortified laboratory to conduct more tests and keep them safe. But the convoy was attacked. A large, hi-jacked bus crashed right into the side of the truck transporting the animals. It tipped over. The energy barriers keeping the animals contained inside were disabled by the crash. Subject 4, in a panicked rage, lit itself ablaze and ran out of the back of the busted truck and leapt onto the nearest person, burning and mauling them. Subject 9 and Subject 8 both fled, following their instincts.
Subject 9 was able to blink away without a trace, but Subject 8 had to slither across the street. Fighting was going on all around it, gunfire and energy blasts as human soldiers and thugs engaged eachother while the enhanced heroes and criminals kept eachother at bay. Subject 8 managed to make it into a nearby allyway, unscathed and hopefully unseen. But it wasn't.
A young criminal, who had been part of the raid on the convoy, while hiding from the gunfire and enhanced fighting, witnessed the tiger seemingly blink out of existance and the snake move into an allyway. She took a deep breath and ran after it, narrowing avoiding a stray lightning bolt. With her pistol in hand, she entered the narrow passageway and began looking for the snake. As she turned the corner, the sounds of fighting began to gradually fade.
Subject 8, with it's telepathic abilities was able to sense her approach and hid by wrapping itself around a fire escape. When she passed under, it slowly lowered itself down behind her and gently hissed. She gasped and turned but as soon as she met the serpent's pale icy gaze her vision blurred. With something fogging her brain and perception she was powerless to stop the snake from striking. It wrapped itself around her arms and torso. She feel to the floor, kicking her legs. Before she could cry out for help the snake tighted it's grip, slowly squeezing the air of her lungs and choking her cries into silence. It snuck it's fangs into her shoulder and pumped her full of venom. It's eyes began to glow an icy blue, as did hers. Her kicks gradually grew weaker and weaker as she was being both physically and mentally exhausted. Most snakes would attempt to devour their prey at this point and Subject 8 was no different. But instead of her body, it began to devour her mind.
It took hours but eventually Subject 8 was in control of the girl's body. After some attempts at piloting this entirely new figure and some of her instincts bleeding into the snake's head, it was able to make her get to her feet. The snake slithered around her torso and began examining it's new appendage. It looked to it's hands. Suddenly, one of them reached up and attempted to pull the snake off. Immediately it twisted itself around, eyes glowing blue, and began asserting it's mental dominance once more. Her resistant hand lowering back down to the side.
As time passed and more of the girl's knowledge of how to pilot her own body filled it's head, Subject 8 was able to make her walk, albeit it jarringly. The hours turned into days, and the days into weeks. It was able to control it's new appendage adequately and was learning all sorts of things about it. The longer it remained wrapped around her, the less she was able to resist. Her bouts of rebellion becoming more and more scarce. The weeks turned into months and it became capable of speaking through her. It had absorbed her knowledge of english and was able to understand what the human words meant. It also felt itself becoming more and more drawn to feminine aspects of life. It started appreciating things like fashion and jewellery. The girl's desires began to fill it's head and they became more than just her desires. They became Subject 8 toos. "Subject 8". That won't do at all. Using it's new concept of 'ideas' that it had drank from the humans brain, Subject 8 decided to give itself a new name. One that was apparently fitting given the context of it's body. Serpentine..
Serpentine began using the girl's social circles and career to it's advantage. It turned up to the next gathering, much to everyone's surprise. There was a lot of "Chelsea? We thought you were dea- What's with the snake?" but it was able to convince them that Chelsea had decided to carve a name for herself and the best way to do that was with a new, striking look. Despite people originally thinking she was ridiculous they quickly realised that the new Chelsea was much more competent. And that there was much more to her than meets the eye. While nobody directly said it, Serpentine knew they all thought that she had become an Enhanced somehow, despite never being one before. But astoundingly, none of them linked it to the snake.
Over the new 2 months, Chelsea earned herself a great deal of respect from the leaders and gradually phased out the use of the name 'Chelsea'. Now everyone referred to her by her real name. Serpentine.
Name: Chelsea Chambers
Codename: Serpentine, also known as Medusa.
Basic appearance/face claim:
Personality: Chelsea was always much smarter than she let on. She had a scheming and wicked personality that she kept underneath a shield of fire and cockiness. She enjoys feminine things, looking pretty and acting ladylike but don't get her wrong - she will absolutely break your teeth if you don't treat her right.
History: Growing up in a crime infested part of New York, Chelsea never had much choice when it came to careers. You either joined the gangs or you died. Both her parents died when she was a teenager but she learned to look after herself much earlier than that. Eager to prove herself she basically begged to come along on the raid of some scientist's convey, despite being incredibly inexperienced. The boss decided to let her because, as I quote, "he could always use more cannon fodder".
That was when she crossed paths with the snake, Subject 8.
After that... it's all... where am I? Someone help... please...
Origin: Chelsea has no powers herself. It's all Serpentine.
Weaknesses: Chelsea is a human and as such must eat, drink and sleep like anyone else. She is also just as squishy as your average human.
Items/Equipment: Chelsea has a machine pistol with an extended, 24 round capacity clip.
Power Description/Type: N/A
Ranking: (Staff will give you this once you have been looked over.)
Minions: Chelsea (Serpentine) has gained a moderate amount of respect in the gang known as the 'The Fangs' and could convince 1 or 2 grunts to accompany her willingly. For those that do not comply, Serpentine can always just use their hypno-venom.
Fluff: Chelsea typically wears all white and carries Serpentine with her at all times, typically like a feather boa.
