PB: Xavier Dolan
Team/Role: Alpha/Damage #2
Codename: Force
Gravity Manipulation: Del has the ability to create, shape, and manipulate gravitation. It can be used both offensively and defensively, but Del admittedly has more experience using his power as a weapon than as a shield.

Life-force Absorption: Manipulating gravity can take a lot out of a person, but Del can compensate by replenishing his energy by taking someone else's. He can only do it by direct touch, his flesh touching someone else's. He has general control of it, but that control lessens if he is tired, overly pressured, overly emotional, or sick.

ETC: Has been with the program since he was about fifteen - his mother had been a part of the program for a couple of years before running. Del was plucked out of the criminal system after a life of petty crime, has been going along for the ride because there aren't many other options for him at this point and it's better than nothing. And, you know, where else would people not only let him cause chaos, but actually want him to? Generally a chill-ish person, a tiny bit of a Peter Parker type nerd with a bit of Harley Quinn type madness, likes to sit back and be sarcastic and grin a lot.

PB: John Krasinski
Team : Bravo
Role: Infiltration #1
Codename: Who
Powers: Furtive Assimilation. No matter where Nick goes, people instantly assume he belongs. He can disappear in a crowd faster than someone can blink their eyes, and he picks up the social norms, rules, and other patterns in a person's life very quickly. This means he can easily slip in and out of jobs and identities without being pegged as "not belonging." He's that familiar face everyone is sure they know from somewhere...

Omnilingualism. Nick can speak, read, and write in any language after a very short amount of time spent studying it. He picks up grammar rules and word definitions so easily it's close to instinctive, and his "mental bank" for foreign languages is apparently limitless. As far as his handler knows, Nick is fluent in English, French, Spanish, Latin, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, German, Russian, Dothraki, Na'vi, LOTR Orcish...

Killing Instinct. Nick is the penultimate wolf in sheep's clothes. Every moment of every day and with every person he is with, he always has at least three different ways in mind of how he could kill them. It's a constant focus at the back of his mind that cannot - will not - be turned off. He gets a surge of power once committed to a killing blow that can enable him to take out those far more powerful than he is, but that is just the overt manifestation of his gift. The subtle manifestation is in how many knives he carries on him at all times, and how he can turn almost anything into a weapon... Nick feels absolutely no guilt for killing, and is always energized immediately after.

Nobody really knows where Nick came from. The name he gave them when being taken into custody is the only name they've been able to connect to him, and Nicholas Slice is clearly a pseudonym. He was taken into custody in the home of a handler that he had dismembered into individual pieces before being caught. Needless to say, he spent a while cooling in the Graveyard while the higher ups decided what to do with him. The handler who got him out of the Graveyard by deciding to take him on (who may or may not be his current handler) made a... Weird deal with him. Nick has agreed to kill anybody his handler points him toward, no questions asked. All he wants in return is the right to bring the dead bodies down to the morgue himself, where there's a very pretty quasi-mortician he will go to outrageous lengths to impress.

Nicholas is, on the surface, a friendly and personable individual. It's easy for people to feel that they really know him, and I'd love for him to have a lot of surface friendships. He likes literature and poetry, and fancies himself a bit of an 'artist' wherever killing is concerned.

PB: Benedict Cumberbatch
Team : Foxtrot
Role: Wildcard or Damage--unsure as to the best fit.
Codename: Cthulhu

Body Modification

Gabriel can change and modify his body, enhancing his physical capabilities. He doesn't have the ability to completely change into a different man--or woman--or to change to an animal form, but he can change his own appearance to a degree. He can thread silver into his dark hair, can trace lines in his forehead and at the corners of his eyes, can bend his spine with supposed age. Conversely, he can appear as a young man in his late teens. He cannot change his mass; he can't make himself taller or shorter, thinner or fatter.

The form that he considers his true form is a terrifying combination of man and nightmare. From the base of his neck to his waist, Gabriel has four sets of tentacles ranging from small and fine to the last set, nearly as thick as his arms. They are retractable, disappearing into his body via openings on either side of his spine. When they are fully retracted, Gabriel's back looks normal save for what appears to be slanted, parallel scars on either side of his spine, each about three inches long--the bottom set are nearly twice that length--and slightly raised. These "scars" are actually openings for the tentacles housed within him. The tentacles are of varying length as well; the smallest upper pair nearly are two feet long in extension, graduating to the lowest pair, which are a bit more than six feet (each tentacle) fully stretched. All are the same color, an iridescent black-green, and are sucker-less, soft and warm, sensitive to touch. They are all prehensile and obedient to Gabriel's will. As Gabriel is lean, he has no idea how everything fits inside him without showing outwardly as lumps or bulges; he says he's a Tardis in the flesh.

Strength: Gabriel is very strong; he's learned well how to hide it, appear as any other man. His tentacles, particularly the biggest, can pick up and throw cars, rip doors out of buildings, pull someone or something limb from limb--the amount of sheer damage he can inflict is startling.

Aquatic Adaptation

Gabriel is able to survive and adapt to underwater environments, being able to breathe water in lieu of, or along with, a gaseous breathing medium, to swim well and to endure high water pressure and extreme water temperatures. He is able to use his senses to perceive normally regardless of the distortion/pressure of the water, including ignoring various impurities that would otherwise reduce the visibility.

Speed: Even in human form, he's quicker, faster than a man. In his water form, he's sleek, sinuous, flexible, almost as if he's boneless, and quicker than even the fastest creature in the ocean. He can't fold time and space to travel somewhere instantaneously, but he'll get where he needs to be faster than anyone would think possible.

Water, come to me: Gabriel can call the water (think Arwen, in LoTRs) to him. He can't command huge bodies, like whipping stretches of the ocean into a massive storm, but rivers and lakes respond to his call. He can't call storms, but can form waterspouts and small localized disturbances, like rain.

Gabriel has been with the program since the age of fifteen, when his powers manifested; he's a veteran of the Corps and has seen many come and go.

I'll expand on his powers and weaknesses in his bio.
