Personality & Traits

General Overview Jason, or Jace, doesn't trust too many people anymore. He tends to be reserved and stand-offish with most. But he has has street smarts and is resourceful. Forced to be streetwise after he left home, Jace had to learn to think on his feet to avoid danger and scope out opportunity. He's resilient. He's a survivor. He can, on rare occasions, surprise you with kindness.
Mutant Power(s) Self-Density Manipulation/Density Control (2) = The user can create, shape, and manipulate their own density. This can range from enhancing to acquire heightened or superhuman durability, increased weight, and amplified strength or diminishing it to achieve intangibility, decreased weight, and even levitation and/or flight capabilities. The user can manipulate the density of matter through tactile interactions, accomplishing the same applications the user possesses. Thus, with practice and training, the user could extend such control to others. Jace had no idea of that possibility until after he arrived at Xavier’s Institute. After training sessions and much practice, Jace can now phase others with himself. He can also achieve the opposite density with them as well.

The user is limited by being able to only affect one extreme of his density at a time (increased or decreased). There are also the effects of density alteration to take into account. For example, increased density may result in slower movement and decreased density may result in diminished strength.

Invulnerability/Increased Density = Sub-power of Self-Density Manipulation. The user is mostly immune to physical damage and harm, unable to feel physical pain as
much, and is mostly immune to bleeding. The user is vulnerable on a deeper level than just the material body, such as the mind, emotions, soul, or telepathy. While in
this state, Jace was still scratched by the claws of a Wendigo.

Intangibility/Phasing/Ghost = Sub-power of Self-Density Manipulation. The user can move through solid objects and ignore most physical effects in their way. The user
can also fuse objects into people. Advanced users have the ability to shift from phasing through objects to becoming solid to varying degrees. The user, still intangible
overall, can selectively determine who or what can and cannot interact with the user while they are intangible. They could intentionally entangle people or objects
within walls, or cause harm by making their hand solid inside a person's head, which could lead to the victim’s death. Jace once removed the brain of a Wendigo in this
fashion as he phased through it. He calls it his ‘touch of death.’ The user is also immune to telepaths while phased. They are vulnerable to getting stuck or crushed if
they turn off they're intangibility while inside of a physical thing.
Profession(s) Jace says he's a professional street kid.

Origin Story They say if you wanna understand the streets, you gotta live 'em. Street kids know the streets, the gangs, the slang, and generally what's going on in the "lower life" aspects of the city. Gangs, fixers, small-time pushers, hookers - you were raised by them all. Jason Adams fell into that category of being raised by them all. But it wasn't where he started.

Jason grew up in a decent family with a brother and two sisters in a well-to-do suburb of Tacoma, Washington. They had family dinners, holiday gatherings, and periodically attended religious services throughout the year. The Adams family was the picture of perfect suburbia. That is until three months after Jason's thirteenth birthday.

He was in the backyard disassembling an old tree-house in the large Oak when his powers first manifest. The density of his body increased and the large limb he was sitting on broke. Jason fell to the ground and created a sizable hole. His parents ran outside at the sound of the limb cracking and found the hole. Gasping, they rushed to the edge and saw their son, uninjured. They reached in to pull him up but couldn't move him. Jason's ability reversed and his density decreased. His parents' hands slipped through his and they fell backwards with the force they'd been using to pull him up. Jason floated out of the hole before their very eyes. He was a mutant.

His mother screamed in horror and his siblings came running out. Jason had no control over his abilities. They leveled out, returning him to his normal density, and he fell to the ground. The boy's life changed from that moment forward. His dad tried to hide him from the rest of the family and their friends. His mom was terrified and completely ignored him as if he didn't exist. His siblings tried to tell him that it'd go away, but eventually followed their mother's example. During the intervening year, Jason became a recluse and privately practiced his powers. He couldn't replicate the decreased density for floating, but could do it just long enough to pass through a wall. With concentration though, he could increase his density. He practiced more and more with that and began to gain some semblance of control.

After that year, at age fourteen, Jason ran away from home with nothing more than a backpack and some money he'd stolen from his mom's purse. He walked, hitch hiked, and paid his way to Seattle where he lived on the streets. Downtown Seattle was now his home and whatever empty building he found to squat in was his house. Jace, as he'd taken to calling himself, was now a street kid. A mutant street kid that would steal to eat and survive until the day before his fifteenth birthday when a local gang approached him to run drugs for them.

Jace denied their request and they threatened to shoot him. The boy used his ability and increased his density. The bullets bounced off of him as he walked towards the nearest gang member and grabbed his arm. Jace grabbed a little too tight and snapped the bones. When the shooter screamed, Jace punched him in the face to shut him up. That most certainly quieted the other boy as his limp body fell to the ground. The gunfire stopped. “Friggin' mutie!” yelled one of them. "C'mon, let's get outta here. Ya freak!” yelled another one. The gang ran away and Jace ran in the opposite direction. Word spread among the low life of the streets about a mutant boy and his bullet-stopping ability. They called him Flux.

Jace spent the next few years practicing his ability, doing jobs for some fixers, raiding warehouses for bigger gangs, and a myriad of other questionable things. He didn't get paid much for the jobs. But he didn't care. It bought food and drink for wherever he happened to be living at the time. Shortly after his eighteenth birthday, he had a visit that would change his life once again.

Since being kidnapped, taken to Canada, imprisoned, fighting his way out, and being rescued by the fabled X-Men, Jace has taken up residence at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Jace certainly had to pick back up on his regular studies since living on the streets. While academics was a necessity, training in the use of his mutant powers was a must. Control and execution were at the top of his learning as well as concentration, discipline, and a host of other things. The young man has done the best he could both academically and practically.
