| BRAD RENÉ CHAMPAGNE
Alias: Cloud; Bradley, René, Champagne.
Gender: Male; Heterosexual.
Age: Twenty-Six Years.
Custom Title: Air. Wind. Sky. Cloud.
Canon/Original: Original Character.
PlayBy: Cam Gigandet.
When Brad is in a confined area, not in public, he would like to go around in the nude. This includes places like his home, a friend's home, or somewhere that is not in the open public. It just gives him the great feeling of being fresh and all natural. It's also the most comfortable 'attire' that one could 'wear.' He also has a great body, so why should he hide it in a bunch of clothing? If he was in a rush and couldn't help himself, he wouldn't care at all if he somehow ended up naked in the streets. If not naked, he will occasionally wear boxers and high socks everywhere.
There are times when Brad likes to dress a bit more formal than casual daily. It just makes him look better than everyone else, giving him a more important citizen role in the community. This includes black shoes, high socks, bow-ties, ties, and other things that you could find that fits this certain attire. Looking nice always means that people would give you attention, which is definitely what he likes. This also means that he likes to buy expensive clothes, because he believes that he is worth the cost.
As a major tool, he believes that he has a body and face of a god, which makes him really conceited. Taking a long length of time to do his hair, he uses all types of shampoos, conditioners, gels, and hairsprays. The best deodorants and body sprays are always at his use, even carrying a pocket cologne at all times. This attire includes flannels, expensive tees, the best of shoes (especially the Nike's brand), fit tees that expresses his muscles, slightly skinny jeans, and dark shades. It may take him a while to change or get dressed because he is always matching everything together to make him look perfect.
If he really has to, he would wear basketball shorts and a plain hoodie over a wife beater. Speaking of wife beaters, it's his favorite piece of clothing and is always wearing one, unless he is sleeping or wants to be naked. This means that he can just slip on some slippers over his socks, some shorts, and a white t-shirt just to do some daily activity. However, he always ends up looking nice somehow.
The first primary addiction that he has is his alcohol addiction. First starting to drink around the age of when he hit puberty, he was never able to stop doing so. It only started with occasional sips of drinks here and there, but eventually turned into a problem of him drinking bottles every week. Enough that he had to hide cases in his room, where he would drink himself to sleep or pass out. When he is close to being drunk or if he is actually drunk, he becomes a human monster. Being violent, he starts shouting and pushing people around like he is the business. A very scary person when he becomes drunk, you do not want to be near him.
The usage of drugs is not as bad as it used to be when he was a teenager going young adult, but he still loves the sensation that they give him. Usually taking doses of narcotics that makes his whole body feel happy and brings him to another place, he just wants to keep on using these dangerous substances. When he does take them, he is taken to a whole new world, not even aware of the real world surrounding him. It makes him feel good, excited, and that nothing can hurt him. As this can cause harm to others around him, it mostly gives himself the most harm.
Cigarettes, you know the ones with nicotine? Yes, this is a separate concept from the drugs and narcotics. He is addicted to smoking as he is with drinking, but just a bit less. Brad is definitely not a chain smoker who needs to light a cigarette one right after another, but he does like to smoke a lot. It just gets his mind off of things and makes him calm around others. He had tried nicotine patches and gum before, but it is not the same as having that cigarette in between your lips.
Drums, Music & Dance
Another passion that will take his minds off of things that will allow him to express his imagination, creativity, and inception is the act of dancing and drumming. He has a love for the beats of the drums, eventually becoming an expertise in that specific art of music. Dancing lets him express -physically- himself and how he likes the swift movements that gives off a positive energy. This isn't just like dancing at the clubs, but choreographed dancing; such as contemporary, hip-hop, and isolation.
As these can all count as separate categories, we can say that he is just an overall douchebag. Being a really rude person around anyone, including both strangers and familiar faces, he just does not give a damn about certain persons. If he isn't able to get his own way, he would not argue against it, as he believes that it's a waste of his time. Instead, he will just ignore what the majority consensus is, and act on his own thoughts. Thinking that he should come first, he makes sure that he does.
Sex & Women
His legs fall weak at the site of women, but he does have that certain charm that just memorizes them. The only 'type' of person that he would be nice to is a woman that he is going for. It also isn't just an act to get them in bed, because he will sincerely and legitimately fall in love with them, treating them with tenderness. Though, that doesn't mean he likes to rip off their clothes and jump in bed, because that's exactly what he likes to do as well. He's a flucking womanizer.
A passion for him is his sense in partying. No, he does not go to a party and just sit on the couch, he makes sure that people knows of his presence. He knows how to start a party, to make one crazy, and how to end it with a blast. This is his favorite time as it calls for girls and drinks everywhere. Plus, everyone are huge jerks here, so he won't be the only one. Not just that, but he also loves to go to formal dinners, outings, and ballroom parties. As it is pretty much the same thing, except for the obnoxious actions.
Hyperactive & Adrenaline-Junkie
Whenever there is an event going on, such as an epic battle in the city, a ball dance at a hall, or any get together that people seem to do; he loves all of the energy and the hype that everyone brings. Also being an adrenaline-junkie, hhe loves the rush of blood and adrenaline pumping through his body by doing some very dangerous acts. Jumping off a cliff into the water, skydiving off of a plane, riding a skateboard down a gigantic hill, or even being punched in the face for fun.
Brad does not really try to worry about anything that is going on in the world. Sure, he likes to know what's happening, but he hates the distress that it would give him if it were to worry him. Thinking that whatever happens, whether bad or good, you just have to deal with it. Living his life to the fullest, he isn't afraid to take risks either. Politics is also the most stupid concept in life.
Negative & Dark Humor
Despite the fact that he believes in things happen for a reason; he just loves the negative energy that he is able to bring. Being sarcastic at a person's comments or remarks are inevitable for him, as it will naturally slip out; even if he wanted to keep it in. Wit, dry humor, and dark humor is always present when he is near. If they were in a near death situation, he wouldn't take the time to worry or whine, but he would rather talk about how funny death is.
Distrust & Isolation
Brad is one big liar, giving even his loved ones the thought of not trusting him. It's just that he is always joking around or lying to people, that when he tells the legit truth... everyone still does not believe him. This isolates him away from others, always being the distinct one in a group. No, he does not look like a loner, but someone that just does not feel like others are good enough to role with him; or that he is not good enough or in the same level with others to be around them.
Love, Affection & Protection
For a positive note! Brad does have heart. He is very passionate and will go to great lengths to achieve something, never giving up. When he does get the chance to learn about a person, and vice versa, he will love them and protect them with all of his might. Sure, he will act the same around them, but he and they will always know that there is a love connection hidden deep within. He can be a really fun guy to hang with if they get to know each other, but that only happens with very few people.
Aerokinesis, also called Anemokinesis or Air/Wind Manipulation is the ability to mentally affect or move wind currents or wind. With this ability, one can easily resist and manipulate wind pressure, move air particles to create vacuums to suffocate foes, or send wind at foes as either gentle wisps of air to gale-force currents. One with this ability could even travel on air currents via flight or walking. Another faculty is Aerogenesis, in which one is capable of generating breathable air or the constituents of air.weaknesses
By using circular, evasive movements, he can build up massive inertia; this buildup of energy is released as massive power. It also allows for wind-based counter-attacks that knock opponents off-balance, mimicking the sudden directional shifts of air currents. Attacks vary from simple gusts of wind to miniature tornadoes and cyclones, maintaining the circular theme. Even a simple movement can create an air gust, being able to increase the power of his moves by performing larger sweeps and spins, using the momentum of their movement to simulate larger gusts.
The most common defensive tactic involves deflecting as needed by throwing up gusts of air close to their bodies as a shield. This is rarely to stop attacks directly and more often pushes the attack aside and away, conserving energy and allowing them to turn the movement into an attack at the same moment. Since air can affect almost all physical objects, it can also be used to enforce the momentum of thrown objects or manipulate other objects. An air barrier can also be created; this is a more powerful defensive technique where the entire body is surrounded by a dome of air that deflects attacks from all directions.
A more offensive move involving a direct pulse or jet of almost solid wind from the hands or feet. The force of the attack is generated more from the bender's own power rather than assisted by momentum. This direct blast can reach further with greater accuracy and is used to inflict greater damage. Another more offensive move than are air punches or air kicks. They are small, compressed formations of air that can be fired off his fists or feet. There is a sense that it involves the firing of compressed or solidified air at an enemy in a non-continuous fashion. The air swipe is a dual defensive and offensive technique in which he conjures a crescent-shaped construct of solidified air capable of deflecting colossal projectiles; sending them off-course.
Air Suction & Breath
A technique used to bring people or things towards himself. It is not like telekinesis; instead of using his mind to physically move things, he sucks the air in an object or person's path, creating a vacuum like ability. The opposite would Very similar to the standard air jet but created from the mouth and lungs. It requires extremely good breath control to employ effectively. Size and focus is more easily controlled, including narrow jets that can strike targets as small as insects, to large gale force gusts capable of cooling magma into solidified rock. For a more specific use, he can suck the oxygen out of a person's lungs; ultimately suffocating them.
Enhanced Speed & Agility
Brad can enhance his movement; running swiftly by decreasing air resistance around himself and even sprint across or run up vertical surfaces by generating a wind current behind himself to propel him forward. Air movements can also be used as a levitation aid. Brad can jump high and far by riding on strong gusts of wind and can slow or deflect falls by creating cushions of air. The constant movement required by this art makes airbenders naturally flexible and agile. Even without bending they can easily maneuver around an opponent by ducking, jumping, and side stepping, appearing to flow around their opponents without expending any energy at all, letting the opponent tire themselves out and thus creating exploitable openings. This conservation of energy combined with high stamina gives them an advantage in prolonged combat.
The air bomb is a technique which creates a powerful, outward-moving air current in all directions around him. This form has great concussive force and the capacity to completely blow away anything within its radius. Creating a compressed ball of air can be similar to a basketball, as the air would be dense enough to even stand on for a short period of time. A spinning funnel of air of various sizes. This can be used to trap and disorient persons or objects; as a potent defense since it will deflect and repel any objects and can even throw them back. A more offensive move than is typical of Airbending principle, this involves a focus slicing air current that can cut through stone or timber with relative ease. This move could prove fatal if used on an organism.
Flight via Wind
The ability to fly by gliding on wind currents; also moving objects or other people with the wind or create a dome of air pressure to deflect attacks. His power over air pressure has also been used to crush powerful objects; even creating pressure greater enough than some heavy weights and gravity. This power grant him the ability to fly as high as the atmosphere can be stretched by using his mastery over wind; also carrying others with him, but not to a great extent.
This is more of a habit of his, rather than a power to use offensively or defensively. Taking the saliva in his mouth, he uses his power of air manipulation to create small bubbles of air. Instead of water or other common liquids to make the bubbles, it's his own spit. By simply opening his mouth, he can create tons of bubbles with no limitations. The spit bubbles are just to make when he is bored or for an annoyance.
The sole power that deals with the use of creating a gaseous substance that just isn't oxygen gas is being able to transform into a white, smoky form. The main use is his whole body 'exploding' into the gas, which covers a seven to ten feet radius cover the moment he transforms. The more area that he covers, the less dense he would be. The closer and tighter that he keeps himself together, the more dense and thicker it would be. He is also experimenting with creating this cloud-like substance without having to transform his body.
a • Tao Chen Kung Fu
A modern martial art based on respect for others and our individual idiosyncrasies, emphasizing psycho-physical development, self-defense and applied technique. The name can be roughly translated as mastery by way of Zen. The style wass primarily taught in France. Brad was encouraged to understand the broad vision of all martial arts, historically from India, to China, to Japan and the West. Technical competency and high physical fitness are encouraged, along with healthy lifestyle, good diet and the personal practice of meditation.
a • Savate
Also known as boxe française, French boxing, French kickboxing or French footfighting, is a French martial art in which Brad uses the hands and feet as weapons combining elements of western boxing with graceful kicking techniques. Only foot kicks are allowed unlike some systems such as muay Thai, and silat which allow the use of the knees or shins. To utilize his hands, not just his legs, he used his knowledge from his Tao Chen Kung Fu studies; mostly the Wing Chun technique of China for punches.
With all of this power that Brad has, he is not resistant to magic. Magic is very supernatural and of the mystics, making it such a power that cannot be stopped physically. He is completely vulnerable to all types of magic that has the capability of injuring, harming, or manipulating him in any shape or form.
Brad's mind is vulnerable to any type of psionic or mental harm. Therefore, he can be mentally manipulated, tortured, controlled, erased, injured, harmed, and any of the other stuff that psychics are capable of. Growing up with a messed up childhood of a life, he is not exactly in the best state of mind, leaving his loose mind even more prone to be played with. Telekinesis is also something that he cannot defend himself from, as it is able to manipulate atoms and structures.
Being a human, he is still highly vulnerable to physical attacks; despite him being extraordinary. These attacks include pierces, shots, bruises, cuts, swollen areas, and all other injuries. His body would need the normal medical care and attention as most other humans.
It's ironic that his powers injure him as well as protect him. Brad suffers from Hyperoxia, an excess in oxygen that are higher than normal partial pressure of oxygen. It refers to excess oxygen in the lungs or other body tissues, which can be caused by breathing air or oxygen at pressures greater than normal atmospheric pressure. This kind of hyperoxia leads to oxygen toxicity. Central nervous system oxygen toxicity manifests as symptoms such as visual changes, ringing in the ears, nausea, twitching, irritability, and dizziness. This may be followed by a tonic seizure: intense muscle contraction occurs for several seconds. The seizure ends with a period of unconsciousness.
Born in France, to a wealthy couple, Brad conjured a rebellious childhood. Despite the several shiny toys and piles of big bucks, he has never received the required love and nourish from his parents to live a stable life. The rare chances that he did get to interact with his mother and father, they would have a very authoritarian relationship. They would tell him exactly what to do, when to do it, how to do it; restricting his whole life... keeping him in a locked box. Wanting to break free, his only choice was to rebel. This created an uncomfortable personality for Brad, as he became a douchebag while growing up; and he even knew that he was one. To steam off, he would run away to his aunt and uncles' small home a few miles away; in which he was taught the martial arts skill of Savate. Brad viewed them as his own parents more than his own biological ones.
Discovering that he has been spending time with their brother and sister, his parents had the need to send him away; as they did not have a family relationship with them. Thinking that it was for the better, they sent him to California in the United States at the age of twelve. Living with a rather unconventional, adoptive family; he actually felt free. However, he did spend time away from this new family of his; practicing the arts Tao Chen Kung Fu; as it mostly relaxed him. From time to time, he would see how fun the family was always having, joining them at family events. They were very musical, which included singing, instruments, and even dancing. This introduced him to the artistic life; in which he now balanced his martial arts and love of music. Mostly the drums.
That definitely did not mean that he was the perfect child now. He still thought of his parents, his aunt and uncle, and this new family of his. Being rebellious back in France made him into a major rebel, as that part of him would never leave. This meant drinking, smoking, and even engaging in sexual activities around the time of entering high school. As his American family actually loved and cared for him, they sent him to a rehabilitation center after he had graduated his senor year in high school; only so he wouldn't put himself in danger in his future life. This did no good, because a month in rehab, his powers manifested. With the motion of his body or the concentration of his energy, he was able to create, manipulate, and control the air around him.
This eventually got him kicked out of rehab, as they feared him. After all he has been through in his life: rebelling in France, learning to defend himself in martial arts techniques, finding a love of the musical arts, and eventually becoming a man... Brad knew that he had to take all of his knowledge, but have a new start in life. Through the past years, he has been jumping from job to job, earning a pay to keep him living throughout the States. Finding his way into a community college, he found some friends, and ultimately graduated. Becoming roommates with one of these friends, he would experience the life of sex, drugs, and hardcore partying. However, in his alone time, he would practice his newfound powers and skills; hoping that he would be needed in the world someday.
Only if people could tolerate his attitude.

|The sky was cloudy today, with a few sightings of the light blue color behind the whites and grays. It was not cold, but it was not hot. It was the type of weather where you wanted to take all of your clothes off: jumping in the hot tub; or laying on top of the roof. It was not as fun, because this temperature was so boring, that everyone just had a normal day. Brad hated normal days, as he was always hoping for something spectacular to happen. Maybe a shooting killing a few people, a parade with the ladies everywhere, or a celebrity in town that caused the whole city to hunt `em down. No. It was just a normal, boring day. Employees went on their lunch breaks, students got out of school, and all that ordinary stuff. Maybe it was time for him to want to cause some action, not exactly trouble.. but something that would bring himself attention.|
Or not. Today, he just felt like expanding his already growing knowledge of his aerokinetic powers that gave him the extraordinary abilities to create and manipulate the air. Good thing that he had learned France's Savate techniques back then, which gave him an advantage as he mixed his mutated powers and self-learned abilities. Which created a unique use of manipulating the air, as he would not put his physical capabilities to waste. While crossing the street, he abruptly stopped in the middle to think. As a car honked it's horn for him to move, he simply pushed a large amount of air to act as a pressure against the vehicle; all the while, staring simply in to the sky. Finally turning to the car and it's driver, he smiled and suddenly shouted, "Pedestrians first, asshole!" He heard the driver's lip say, 'You're the asshole,' but could not hear through the car's shut windows.
Finishing his cross on the street, he found an average-sized apartment building. The roof of this structure was the object he was actually staring at, not just the sky itself. It was probably isolated and empty, with broken old objects. He would be able to have it to himself, no one being able to bother him in his personal activities. Through the bag that he was caring, he pulled out some 'Beats by Dre' headphones, covering his ears with them. Blasting some obnoxious rap music loud enough for persons in a five foot radius to hear. However, there were hardly any others in the building. Making his way towards the elevator, he found himself to be the only one in the small, metallic room. Seeing that someone was rushing into the same elevator as him, he quickly pressed the 'close' button; smiling at the appearing man who needed the elevator as well.
Reaching the top floor, he found his way to the the small flight of stairs, leading to the roof of the building. Setting his bag down, he disconnected his earphones from the portable speakers. Now that the music was open, and not just disclosed to his ears, he would be able to concentrate more. No, not for dancing; but for mastering his aerokinetic capabilities. Kicking the ground with the heel of his shoes, he could feel that there were lots of rubble and dust; though, he still wanted to practice his form of running. Using the air around him, he would lessen it so that he was able to run with quicker speed; creating short gusts of air surrounding him. Before so, he needed to take all of his clothes off; leave for the black-colored boxer-briefs he was wearing.
It just made him more comfortable, which ultimately makes any action that he is doing with ease. In a starting pose for running, he stepped with both of his feet, one at a time. With each step, he would move at a quicker pace; feeling the air rushing around him. Feeling the adrenaline pump through his body and the music that made it all the better, he didn't realize that he had run off of the side of the rooftop. Tripping over the slippery rubble, he starting free falling towards the ground below. Seeing as he would die, he decided to create a dense -cloud, he likes to call them- of air to cushion his fall. It worked, as he fell on top of his cloud; which seemed to other people that he was floating just inches above the sidewalk.
People started to either stare or quickly walk away. Cockily smiling, his body started jerking. Feeling that he had consumed too much oxygen, his eyes rolled back. Blacking out, the cloud puffed away and he fell to the ground inches below. Fuck.
