Concept

Apple farmer, plant-shaper

Power

Plant-shaping: Izumo can adjust the properties and disposition of nearby plants in real-time to more or less whatever is needed at the time. For an action point, Izumo can roll Magic: Plantshaping to attempt to make a living plant that he is in physical contact with to do one of the following:

  • Grow/shrink in a controlled manner
  • Move around, change shape, or bend
  • Secrete or cease secretion of a certain chemical
  • Bloom or cease blooming or releasing pollen

The DC for this roll is set by the GM, based on the degree of the change Izumo's making, how fast he wants to do it, etc. By spending two action points, he can affect any single plant in his field of vision, regardless of physical contact. For three action points and one Mind damage1, he can affect any number of plants in his field of vision.

Aspects

This really isn't any of my business: Izumo's personal philosophy is not to interfere where he isn't asked to. He refrains from inquiring about things that aren't his business, and can shut out information that he doesn't want to know easily.
And it's none of yours, either!: Izumo values his privacy and not being disturbed, and is particularly suspicious of any sort of authority poking their nose into the business of his or others.
It's a trap: Izumo's default assumption is that the other guy is trying to cheat him or is planning to do something to him, and he acts accordingly. Useful when someone has hidden motives, not so much when they're genuinely friendly.

Personal History

Born 28 years ago on ████████████ Island, Japan, Izumo inherited his family's ability to bend plants to their will (this is how they managed to create SCP-824-1). It was assumed by his family that he would continue in the tradition of maintaining the apple orchards on the island. However, having been born around the time that the island was making its first tentative steps towards integrating with the wider world, Izumo was made the decision to leave the island and headed for Osaka, where he enrolled at Osaka University, majoring in plant biology.

He transferred to Boise State University at age 22 to get his Master's degree. He finished it up around the age of 27… and then the Event happened. Stranded in Idaho with no way to contact or reach his home, he took up shelter in a nearby forest, until he decided to strike out on his own…
