The Students in General

    Students in General 
Though the story focuses on a small...-ish group of heroes, Power Academy is inhabited by many students beyond that group. They may get a line here and there, but for the most part they are just extras. The named characters that come after this section are the exception, though.

Unlockable Party Members

    Emily "Blaze" Hartmann 

Emily "Blaze" Hartmann (aka Subject 001)

Hydro/Jana's twin sister (hair and powers aside), Blaze is a brash young woman quick to use her pyrokinesis to solve problems big and small. Orphaned at a young age, she and Jana have spent their lives wandering from town to town, trying to get by; they eventually found their way to Power Academy. Notably, she bears a strong resemblance to Lightning, and claims the three of them are actually long-separated triplets.

She's not that far off. In reality, their minds were just altered to make them think they had a family; they are actually clones of the deceased Layla Ulrich, made by Vilhelm as super-soldiers. Thanks to Eve Ulrich, the two, along with Lightning, escaped his control before they could be used for evil purposes. Her memories were altered so she couldn't remember anything about her past, believing she and Jana lived a happy life beforehand.

Emily's powers are focused on dealing as much damage as possible, but she can quickly run out of energy doing so. Can be romanced by a male player character.

    Ezekiel Williams 

Ezekiel "Zeke" Williams (aka Rudolf Kleiner)

Power: Animation (can bring inanimate objects to life under his control)

Ezekiel and Gill have a bit of a history; they were good friends until they fought over who should own Tripp. In the end Gill defended himself against an onslaught of mining equipment, and with one push Zeke fell down a mine shaft and shattered both his legs. Gill was upset at the turn of events, but he left him to rot in the grave he dug himself. Zeke was rescued by Amaryllis, Clayton, and Lei-Lani as they began to track Gill's travels through time. He was adopted as the group's technology expert thanks to his technopathy, which earned him a reputation as the "Puppet Master." Since then he's been focused on confronting Gill again; this time though, he's assured he will come out on top.

That's not even getting into his future self. Ezekiel, using his former name Rudolf Kleiner, eventually founds Normco, essentially becoming his own employer. He's also focused on trying to ensure that his future daughter, Anna, has a chance to exist.

In addition to his mechanical minions, Zeke has developed a special steampunk wheelchair mech for his own use. Can be romanced by a female player character.

    Gwendyson "Wendy" Z 

Gwendyson "Wendy" Z

Created by Swilium using DNA samples from Xavier, Wendy was intended as a girlfriend. She was made as an amalgamation of what Swilium viewed to be Tala and Xavier's best traits, but he viewed Wendy as a failure, and rejected her in the end anyway. After running away, she eventually found her way to Talan, and then to Power Academy. Her power comes from a magic sketchbook; anything Wendy draws comes to life.

In combat, she can use this as a support power, and can also mimic some enemies' abilities. Can be romanced by a female or male player character.

    Prexcilia ("Prexy") 

Prexcilia ("Prexy")

Power: Reality manipulation

One of two otherworldly creatures that managed to follow Gill through the Void as he crossed from his timeline to the alpha timeline. Prexcilia is hellbent on revenge on Gill for stealing a sentient stabilizer gauntlet (which happens to be Tripp), and on Willow for taking out both her eyes, caused when she attacked them on their way through the timestream. She is assisted reluctantly by her brother Quasar.

Prexcilia has a very unusual fighting style; she relies upon a d20, rolled for a random effect. The amount of damage she does is based on what she rolls. Can be romanced by a female player character.

    Swilium DeRain 

Swilium DeRain

Power: Ability to cast spells from song lyrics

Gifted with a special voice, Alderon's brother Swilium made the most of it and practiced its magical power...by stealing everything he ever wanted. He has come to Power Academy to perfect his voice and find his old friend. He has wrecked his family life, inadvertently gotten his girlfriend killed, and recently learned to sing an ancient language that grants him these abilities. His family line has roots as bards to a king.

Swilium is more or less a Jack-of-All-Trades in combat, ranging from support spells to offense spells thanks to his musical skill. Can be romanced by a male or female player character.

     Xavier Y 

Xavier Y

Power: Anything he draws and then erases comes to life

One of Swilium's clone projects, Xavier was originally intended as a sidekick and boyfriend. He eventually ran away after Swilium and him got into a fight. Xavier has since spent his days jumping from job to job, trying to make his way. Eventually, he found his way to Power Academy. His power comes from an enchanted sketchbook; whatever he draws and then erases becomes physically manifested.

Can be romanced by a male or female player character.

Guest Star Party Members

    Adrian Mustaine 

Adrian Mustaine

Power: None; relies on concocted poisons and potions

A self-styled "agent of chaos," Adrian came to Paranorm to perfect his skills for his calling in life: becoming a badass criminal mastermind. He's just not very good at it...at all. Many of his schemes either fall completely flat or are often inadvertently undone by his own actions. Even so, he presents a credible (if minor) threat in his sidequest chain. In the end, though, he doesn't really want to be a criminal mastermind; he just wants to be badass and for people to take him seriously. When the party defeats him, they have the option of either sending him off to jail or recruiting him as a student at the Academy (and a future Guest-Star Party Member).

While not a superhuman per se, Adrian specializes in concocting various poisons, potions, etc. to assist him in combat.

    Claire Pulsar 

Claire Pulsar

Power: Plasma Manipulation

Descending from an isolated Native American tribe, Claire was born with the ability to manipulate plasma. She was recruited into an order of elite assassins at a young age, trained to be a powerful and stealthy assassin. In her travels, she encountered Gill; the two often fought, but soon fell in love with each other. On one occasion, though, Gill escaped through a portal; Claire gave chase, but was trapped within a dimensional anomaly. She was eventually freed when Val and Anna stumbled across her during a chase with Fate, and she ended up at Power Academy in the present day.

In combat, beyond using plasma blasts, Claire can manipulate plasma to use as a targeting laser or to clear out the fog of war.

    Dahlia Tartakovsky 

Dahlia Tartakovsky (nee Reznov)

Dahlia is the daughter of Armin Tartakovsky, CEO of the BioCorp genetic engineering company. She was accidentally exposed to a chemical at a young age that granted her invisibility powers. She appears to be ordinary (as far as young socialites go), but the truth is a bit more complicated than that. Dahlia is actually Alexei's estranged daughter, given up for adoption when she was an infant. Once she learned the truth about her past, she became horrified to know she was the daughter of what she believed to be a vicious terrorist leader. As a result, she has dedicated her life to becoming an assassin, hunting down the worst criminals and those who deserve it.

In combat, she prefers to attack from range with her sniper rifle; in close quarters, she can switch to her parasol sword. In both cases, she can temporarily cloak for greater damage.

    Corvus Kristatos 

Corvus Kristatos

Power: Geokinesis

One of Alice's childhood friends and old sparring partners from their home in Alabama, Corvus' parents died in a monster attack when he was a young child. He was left to wander the wastelands with her and her family for years. Originally, when Alice was offered the chance to fight evil alongside Val and her other companions, Corvus refused the call, wanting to stay and protect his other friends and family. However, something has apparently changed, as he has suddenly arrived at the Academy...

    Lei-Lani Lychee 

Lei-Lani Lychee

Lei-Lani was taken from her home in Hawaii at a young age after her parents mysteriously died, brought to the mainland by Normco. Her original ability was an ultrasonic voice, but an accident in one of the testing labs shattered some containers. She was drenched in experimental chemicals from the containers which altered her abilities; she gained the ability to negate powers, but lost her voice (she can still talk, but barely).

Lei-Lani takes it upon herself to end fights with her power, being a walking deadzone for superpowers. Can be romanced by a male player character.

    Quasar 

Quasar

Role: Student

    Dawn Aizawa 

Dawn Aizawa

Power: Elemental spells and the ability to summon swords

One of the newer students at the Academy, Dawn is an inexperienced but enthusiastic battlemage. Raised in a remote forest in Japan, she's the latest in a long line of monster hunters dedicated to protecting the world from supernatural threats. As she came of age, she decided it was time to go into the outside world and

Aside from her elemental spells, Dawn can summon dual swords to use in combat. In spite of the wide range of power she has, she's not very good at it at the start, but develops over time.

    Shaun MacReady 

Shaun MacReady

Power: Photographic memory

A skilled young hacker, Shaun is one of the newer students at the Academy. Early on in the story, he is sent off on a mission to investigate Equinox's plans...and is found dead, believed to have been killed by Alexei. Don't get too attached.

  • Apocalyptic Log: He has left a series of hidden messages for the party, where he details what he's found out during his undercover missions. Especially applies to his last message to the party, where he's surrounded by Vilhelm's forces (quickly closing in) and about to be dragged off to be turned into a cyborg.
  • Body Horror: As a cyborg.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite his perceived naivete, he appears to be very competent, even getting sent off on a mission on his own—sadly, that last part doesn't do him much good. Especially given that he looked at the wrong file at the wrong time.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: During his search through Vilhelm's mainframe, he stumbled across files detailing Jonathan and Terminus' plans, as well as the latter's one weakness.
  • Expy: Of Subject 16.
  • Forgotten Fallen Friend: Averted. Shaun's death serves as an example to the rest of the heroes, and a constant reminder that they could lose their lives in the fight against evil.
  • The Generic Guy: Even by his own admission, he kind of blends into a crowd, especially compared to everyone else.
  • Glass Cannon
  • Guest-Star Party Member: For a couple of battles.
  • He Knows Too Much: The reason why Terminus has him killed? He learns the truth about her early on.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power
  • Hero of Another Story: A story that gets cut short, but his own story nonetheless.
  • Posthumous Character: He appears very briefly during the prologue (as part of a tutorial fight), then disappears once he goes on his mission. After that, it's all posthumous audio files.
  • Sacrificial Lamb: His death demonstrates to the party that the missions they go on are, in fact, life-threatening, and the same thing could happen to them.
  • The Smart Guy: So much so that during his final mission, he basically figures out the entire plot. Unfortunately, it's what gets him killed.
  • Suspect Is Hatless: As a Running Gag, anyone who tries to physically describe him is simply at a loss for words. He's just that bland appearance-wise.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye
