Personality

Click to expand.

Party Girl:
Life IS a party. And if it's not happening right where Jennifer is, she'll go find one. And if she can't find one, she'll start one. Life is supposed to be FUN, and Jennifer can be found where the fun is.

Prankster:
Jennifer likes teasing and playing jokes on people. She rarely does anything that is likely to cause actual harm, but might well do something to cause embarrassment (maybe putting a little bad luck on somebody's belt?). She finds it delightful. Most others disagree.

Pretty:
Despite her hatred of beauty pageants, Jennifer puts a lot of her identity into her appearance. She dresses nicely even when she's careful and puts a great deal of effort into looking good -- even if part of that is making it look like she doesn't.

Rebellious:
As a child Jennifer was entered in beauty pageant after beauty pageant and hated every moment of it. She got herself banned from the pageant circuit by performing a heavily profane song at the show. She has spent her teen years rebelling against authority, her parents in particular. She's not about to bow down to 'the Man'.

Snarky:
Jennifer has a quick wit and will rarely let an opportunity to make a barbed comment go by.

Character Sheet

Powers

Luck Manipulation:
Roulette is capable of making black or white balls of psionic energy that, when they make contact with a person or object, change the probability of events around that thing. Black balls make it more likely that bad things will happen to the target, while white balls make it more likely that good things will happen. The amount of 'luck' imparted depends on the size of the ball created and the general feeling Roulette has for the intended target.

These balls do not have physical substance except in Roulette's hands, but can be intercepted or deflected away from intended targets. A telekinetic or somebody who controls energy could move the balls out of their intended trajectory. Further, Roulette herself can be attacked and caused to miss her aim or else drop the balls and perhaps be affected by them herself.

The impact of the luck given to the target is random -- as luck generally is -- but affected by circumstances. A racing runner struck with bad luck might pull a muscle, trip on a stone they didn't notice, have a competitor gain an unexpected burst of speed to pass them by. Any which way, the runner is less likely to win the race, but determination can often overcome bad luck if all othe things are equal.

The larger the swing of luck that Roulette intends, the more energy is required. Causing the aforementioned runner to trip on a stone, setting them back a few steps (or some similar mishap) would require a smaller output of energy than causing them to break an ankle and be unable to complete the race. Making a gambler win $100 on a slot machine would require much less energy than causing them to win a million dollar jackpot. The more energy Roulette pours into the fortune or misfortune of one person, the less she has to work with. She requires time to restore the energy she uses to influence the luck of others.

Notably, Roulette is banned from every casino in Atlantic City, despite not being of legal gambling age.

Skills

Click to expand.

Athletics:
While not a master of any particular sport, Jennifer Stavros is in very good shape for a young woman her age and build. She exercises daily, runs quickly and is fairly strong.

Dance:
Jennifer took years of dance, particularly tap and ballet, for her early life career in beauty pageants. While she hated the pageants, she enjoys dance itself -- though she's far more interested in the dance floor than the stage.

Gymnastics:
Jennifer took years of gymnastics training when she was a child. She has kept up this training to maintain her agility and tone, particularly in training at Xavier's. She can't do the tricks and tumbles seen in the Olympics, but she knows how to leap and twist very well all the same.

Self-Defense:
In close combat Jennifer's tactics are mostly to dodge and block. She is slim and agile and pretty good at keeping out of people's way. However, she knows how to land a lunch when she absolutely must -- which often isn't enough against the caliber of opponent she can expect to face.

Throwing Weapons:
Jennifer has trained in throwing objects -- particularly her psionic energy balls, but throwing knives and the like as well, because sometimes you need more than luck to get through a fight. She's got good aim, not perfect, but can hit moving targets the vast majority of the time in training. She has little experience in actual fights to test this skill.

Parents:
While they make her groan most of the time and she may never forgive her mother for subjecting her to the preteen beauty pageant scene, Jennifer loves her parents (however grudgingly) and can expect their help when needed, whether she needs to crash at home in Atlantic City or borrow the car.

Party Scene:
Jen's well known among the Westchester County party crowd and making inroads in the New York City scene as well. She can find parties whenever she needs to, pretty much, and her own parties are well attended. If nothing else, instant crowds make for good hiding places.

Projectiles:
Roulette carries with her an assortment of weapons for throwing. It's her best offensive skill beyond careful application of her powers. Jennifer Stavros generally has a few of these on her as well for protection.

Xavier's:
For the next few months, at least, Stavros attends the Xavier School. As a student and a mutant she has access to all of its training facilities, as well as food, shelter and coconspirators.

Weaknesses

Atlantic City:
Roulette is banned from every Casino in Atlantic City.

Bad Reputation:
The pageants don't like her. The Atlantic City casinos don't like her. Jennifer Stavros has achieved a pretty bad reputation among a lot of people. Her snarky attitude and tendency to tease and play jokes don't help.

Hair and Eyes:
Shhh. Jennifer's a natural brunette with brown eyes. That's dye and contact lenses.

Pageants:
Not only does Stavros hate pageants, but pageants hate her. She's not welcome, and people who associate closely with pageants, particularly in New Jersey, may still recognize the girl who, five years ago, brought a Little Miss New Jersey tournament to a screeching halt with a profanity-laden hip hop tune. They will not be pleased to see her.

Psionic Energy:
Energy is not infinite. The energy that powers Roulette's luck balls will run out like anything else. When she uses her power too much, whether putting out too many small 'charms' in a limited amount of time or too large a charm all at once, she will run out of energy and need to recharge before she can do more -- it will take an twenty minutes or so at the least, and in combt that's far too long.
