Let’s face it, I go into something a little half cocked. I wanted to put magic in the series, mostly so that it would open things up to a bit of a puzzle element to each episode. Of course, I’m not as familiar with magic and it’s ‘everyday application’ the way I could image psychic abilities. That’s totally within my realm, as I’m that sci-fi guy more than a fantasy guy.
So let’s push into psionics.
I went into researching the stereotypical powers. Clairvoyance, Precognition, Telepathy, Telekinesis… then I remembered that there was a fully realized world of psychic powers that sadly had a horrible story. Push. While lots of ideas were very interesting, it wasn’t put to great use.
For me, I’m going to compile a list of stuff and see what interesting elements I can use to create puzzles with. Of course, with multiple ways of solving it, as I intend to give each character a power or two that they can use.
Well, with that said, I can post up on the Pyrokinetic.
In a quick poll of FA and SF, I found that Lions were a popular choice. I figured I’d need an additional feline to that cast, so that really works out. Then the ideas started to pour out. Now that I was going in the direction of psychic powers, I could now have a hot headed pyrokinetic. He’s that short, quite stacked lion. And then I can definitely see how that will play out as the game goes along. Of course, as an actor, he’s very relaxed easy-come-easy-go nice guy. Likes long walks on beaches, drinks fruity cocktails, hasn’t held a steady relationship since most of the guys want the hot headed personality he plays on the ‘show’.
Though, I can go either way on how popular the ‘show’ is in their world. Whether it’s a few very niche TV show aimed at gay guys or a very standard and rather popular prime time series. I’ll have to think about that one for a while.
