Character Information
Name: Marie D’Ancanto but she goes by Rogue
Codename: Rogue
Age/DOB: 25 - 26 March
Affiliations: X-men, STRIKE
Occupation: an agent for STRIKE
Physical Traits: About 5’5, dark auburn hair with a white streak on either side to frame her face, green eyes, fairly slender build but she works out enough to have some muscle

Powers: Uncontrollable power absorption through skin-to-skin contact and superhuman strength and durability and flight permanently absorbed from Ms. Marvel.

Personality: If anything, Rogue has issues trusting people which has a lot to do with her mutation. She also tends to run from problems and awkward situations. She doesn’t deal with those sorts of situations well but has gotten better at it over the years. She’s rather introverted and keeps her walls up but they’re not completely impenetrable. When someone does break past them, she tends to become loyal to them. She’s a strong person with a fair bit of Southern sass to her. While her moral beliefs are strong, they can waver a bit, especially in instances where it’s something personal.

Hailing from Mississippi, Rogue lived a fairly normal life for the first part of her life. She did well in school, had two parents who loved her, and such. When she was 15, her mutation emerged when she kissed her boyfriend for the first time. He’s been in a coma ever since. She spent a little under a year trying to figure things out with this curse before she finally ran away, heading up to Canada where she encountered Wolverine and consequently the X-men. When Magneto learned of her powers, he kidnapped her in order to force her to use a machine that would turn normal humans into flat scans. Not only that, but the machine required Magneto’s power… and a life force. Wolverine saved her by using her mutation to give her his healing power, almost killing him. It was here where she gained the white streak in her hair.

She began attending Xavier’s school and dating Bobby Drake even though her mutation seriously screwed with their relationship. The school was attacked by William Stryker and she, along with Bobby and John Allerdyce, were swept into the X-men/Brotherhood venture to stop Stryker. After the betrayal of Magneto and Pyro, the destruction of the Weapon X facility, and the death of Jean Grey, she and Bobby were promoted to the X-men team. When the Cure came into the pictures months later, she took it.

XMH Summary:
The Cure didn’t work and Rogue’s powers returned during an intimate moment with Bobby. Completely freaked out, she did the one thing she knew and ran. Logan tracked her down and brought her back to the mansion. Not long after wards, she and Bobby broke up, seemingly due to the presence of a new addition to the mansion, Julian Keller. The two had become friends after his initial arrival and he sought to help her deal with her returned powers. Not long afterwards, he made his interest in her clear and found that he could touch her if he generated a low level telekinetic shield. The two entered into a whirlwind relationship, both falling hard and fast for the other.

Things between them went fine until the arrival of one Remy LeBeau. Rogue, along with Alison Blaire, was assigned as Gambit’s guide and subsequent training partner. Julian soon became jealous of the time the two were spending together, made some serious assumptions, and brutally broke up with Rogue, leaving her heartbroken and unable to forgive him despite his later realization and attempts to apologise.

The return of Magneto as President of Genosha a few months later shook Rogue to the core as past memories returned and she retreated into her room with a Grateful Dead album on repeat. Ali, who’d learned of Rogue’s choice in music a few weeks earlier and started a friendship with the girl, heard the album, realized what it meant, and went down to try and comfort her, setting off a deep friendship between the two that would endure. The two became close, wavering at the edge of an actual relationship when Logan took Ali up to join Alpha Flight in Canada.

During that time, although she and Ali remained friends, the distance between them allowed for things to cool off. At the same time, Julian came back into Rogue’s life as the two began first a friendship and then a relationship again along with attending the local college together. This go-round didn’t have quite the same sparks as before with Rogue being too cautious to fully let herself love him again. When Ali returned to the mansion, feelings began to reemerge between them but they pushed them back. Then Julian left Rogue again to get back together with his ex-girlfriend Amara Aquilla. This allowed for Ali and Rogue to fall back into their close friendship and eventual relationship. Rogue’s mutation was a constant source of frustration for the two and their first real kiss didn’t happen until Julian shielded Ali for a few moments after the two returned from a night out gone wrong.

Five-year Gap Summary:
In the summer following her first (and final year) at the local college, Rogue left the mansion and went to England to both continue her studies there and to work with a superhero team there of which Captain Britain/Brian Braddock was a part of. Her relationship with Ali soon crumbled under the strain of distance. She spent the next two years there, completing her degree and ending her stay there with an encounter with Carol Danvers/Ms. Marvel gone incredibly wrong. Carol’s mind was taken over by the evil of the week and Captain Britain’s team was there to deal with the matter. Rogue was forced to absorb Carol and accidentally absorbed too much, sending Carol into a coma and Rogue into a few months of near insanity. The powers from Carol were absorbed permanently but also came with Carol’s psyche taking up residence in her head, resulting in Rogue’s state of mind during the time. It took a meeting with Xavier to sort her brain out even though she wasn’t aware that it was him at the time. She merely had her suspicions afterwards. It wasn’t until a year after her run-in with Carol that she was able to finally deal with the psyche and figuring out how to use the powers although she does keep the fact that she has them on the low key. Once she'd dealt with the matter, Brian helped recruit her to STRIKE, the British equivalent of SHIELD.

Not long afterwards, the school was demolished, leaving Rogue somewhat stuck in Europe in the confusion that followed. Emma told her to stay where she was as she could do more good there than at the school. Instead, she helped aide those displaced and also those hiding from persecution as the ideas of the Friends of Humanity began to spread throughout the world. She continued to work for STRIKE, splitting her time between that and helping mutants on her current side of the pond.

Happy get-your-goddamn-powers-and-almost-kill-someone Day to me.

Four years later and I still have no control over this stupid thing and I still have yet to visit him.

Way to go Marie.

It's been a week since we heard about Magneto. People are still talking about it. I can say whatever I want about being on the team that takes him down, but I'm not proving anything to the one person I'm trying to prove something to: me. Magneto's the one person in this world who truly scares the hell out of me. I'll never admitt it outloud, but he does. I'm afraid of Magneto. I can't lie to myself about that much anymore.

Next week marks it being four years since that day. I should ask Storm if she'll let me go down to Mississippi for a few days, but I'm not sure if I really want to do that. I haven't seen Cody since the accident and I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to go now. I do owe it to him though. Maybe I'll go next year.

Murdering bastards should be in jail not running countries. If he tries to pull that mutant supremacy shit again and declare war on human kind, it'll take an act of God to stop me from being on the team that takes him the hell down.

Sheesh. I haven’t updated this thing in forever. To be honest, I’ve been avoiding getting online. Actually, I’ve been avoiding these stupid journals. Especially seeing how my last entry was about… well. That.

Argh. I don’t know. Julian Keller has complicated my life so much. He screws me over like that and now he’s trying to get me to forgive him and take him back. It’s not going to happen. I may have loved him, but now… now it’d be impossible to. Bleh. At least I’ve still got Kitty and Jubes. Friends always end up being more important than guys, right?

And then there’s Remy. Why is it that people can’t just keep their stupid thoughts to themselves? I mean, there’s nothing going on between us. We’re just really good friends. Okay, I might’ve tried to throw myself at him on St. Patrick’s Day when I was drunk and still moping and distraught over Julian, but Remy was enough of a gentleman (and sober enough) to push me away. Thankfully. I don’t even want to think about how things would’ve gone if he hadn’t. And that’s not even taking my mutation into account. But anyways, he’s been a good friend to me. Things would be better if a certain someone would stop trying to convince me that he’s mind controlling me but I guess that would be asking for too much. Maybe it would also help things if Remy and I both flatout said we were just friends, but for some reason… it’s more fun to just not say anything.

I think I’m going to stop rambling on here now. I’ve got a few more problems to do for math. It’d be nice to get away from this place for a bit. Maybe I’ll see if I can go back down South when summer comes.

I give up on relationships. What the hell's the point anyways if you can't really touch without the chance of killing someone and everything's just going to go to hell in a handbasket anyways?

[ooc: yeah, this is backdated because I should've posted this awhile ago but school got in the way. so hopefully, this might help make a few things make a bit more sense :p]

This whole week's been such a mess with Remy arriving and all. He bothered the hell out of me for the first few days with his constant non-stop flirting. So I was a bit of a bitch to him. Ali's stupid comments about how she thought I was interested in him didn't help things.

And then I got assigned as his sparring partner. Which just made my day. It's just possible that I might have said something a bit ruder than usual. So he asked me what I had against him and I told him that his constant hitting on me was ridiculous and annoying as hell. I'm not quite sure what happened, but it ended with him saying he'd back off a bit and us being friends?

So far, I think it's actually been working. We've got a weird sort of friendship, but it works. Julian's a bit upset about the amount of time I've been spending with Remy but then again, most of it's not by choice. Between being assigned as his guide and his sparring partner, that's MORE than enough time to spend with one person who I'm only casual friends with. And while yes, I admit that Remy's rather good looking, I'm not interested in him because I have everything I want in Julian. I know people might think that this might be the same as the Bobby/Julian scenario, but I know it's not. I guess I can admit to myself that I was attracted to Julian while I was dating Bobby, but I would recognise that feeling now. And this is definetly not that.

Ugh, I need to get sleep. These DR sessions on top of classes are killing me. I miss free time.

I still don't see the point to Valentine's Day but at least it was fun. There are some rather, erm, interesting museums in NYC. The show [Les Miserables] was really good though.

And I'm officially too tired to write anymore. Maybe we'll/I'll get lucky and Logan'll cancel DR tomorrow morning. Ha. Like that'll happen.

Fuck. Fuck. fuck. fuck. fuck.

Not again. Please, God, not again. Not again. Please not again.

He's just unconcious, right? God, please don't let him be in a coma. Not him too.

Damnit, I knew something was wrong but he said there wasn't. I should've known not to believe him about that.

damnit damnit damnit.

God, please don't let Julian be in a coma.
