GENERAL INFORMATION:Full Character Name:
Amara Juliana Olivians AquillaCodename:
Amara is the picture of a well brought up young lady when engaged in polite conversation, as she was brought up in the ways of Roman nobility. Being raised in Nova Roma she is a complete stranger to the modern world and is completely taken by anything modern, but can become intensely confused by the behaviour of those around her. At times her naivety gets the better of her and she reacts poorly to not understanding modern ways, coming across snobby in an ‘I’m better than you’ fashion in attempts to cover up her lack of understanding.
When Amara has the chance to actually be herself she is a sweet natured girl with a fierce thirst for adventure. She is spirited and likes to be seen as courageous, but has a limited tolerance when it comes to being taken for granted and the fuse to her temper is short. Amara has set the bar for her life fairly high and tends to get discouraged when she doesn’t live up to her own expectations. Beneath the “royal” attitude she is a good person and is seeking friendship and understanding about the world around her. Her biggest desire at the moment is to fit in with people her own age in the modern world. Just what is an iphone anyway?Appearance:
To say that Amara was merely pretty would be to liken the works of michelangelo to scribbles. Her hair is long and golden, falling about mid-back in delicate waves and worn in many varying styles (primarily braids, but she has been introduced to an iron of straightening). There is a noticeable intellect that shines through startling sapphire eyes and she moves with the grace of an angel. Amara has an athletic build from growing up in the jungles of the amazon and her skin is lightly sunkissed.
Since coming to America her wardrobe has taken a drastic turn, modern day clothing being what it is. Amara has taken a liking to flowing dresses and skirts, donning pants when necessary. Although she has a preference towards flat shoes, she has been talked into wearing heels and has fallen in love with the strangely pointed footwear.Additional Information:
-Being treated like a coward/inferior
-Bras - what the hell?
-Being off land
-Irrational fear of rubber ducks. What is the function of them anyway?
She can psionically cause magma, or molten rock, from far beneath Earth's surface to rise to and break through the surface, forming miniature volcanoes. Amara can also telekinetically project fiery blasts of magma at targets. She does so by turning nearby rock molten and then telekinetically hurling it at her target. At her current level she is only able to turn about a semi truck’s worth of rock into magma. Amara can also psionically control the movement of the tectonic plates within the Earth's crust within limited areas, probably no less than a radius of a few city blocks. Within this area she can create small or large earthquakes by psionically affecting the Earth's crust. Pyrokinesis:
She can create flames and project blasts of heat that do not contain any molten rock. However, she prefers to fire magma blasts rather than simple heat blasts; this is because the magma blasts have a solid impact that can knock down a target. The highest level of heat that Magma can generate is not yet known, but she can currently reach at least 850° Fahrenheit. Magma Form:
When using her powers Magma's body shines with intense light and gives off tremendous heat. Her hair blazes with fiery light. Neither her own heat nor heat from any other known source can burn or otherwise harm Magma. Although Magma has triggered small earth tremors without taking on her glowing form, she has never been seen to use her power to fire lava blasts while in her ordinary human appearance. Magma is not blinded by the light she gives off in her shining form and is immune to the dangerous effects of flame and heat while in it. While Amara is in her lava form she has the ability to heal herself. Lacerations of her skin are healed almost instantly, fused back together with molten lava. Weakness or Flaws:
Amara possesses certain regenerative powers when in contact with the ground. If she is not in contact with the ground or the physical shock to her system from a single injury is too great, the regenerative power is no longer in effect and she may die. Magma's powers are dependent upon her contact with the Earth (or at least with a floor that is part of a structure in contact with the ground). Her powers will begin to weaken if she is removed from physical contact with the Earth. However, as soon as she renews this contact, her powers will return to their usual level of strength. If she is removed from the earth long enough for her powers to weaken considerably it would be easier to cool her down, but would require a great shock to her system; IE tossed into a large body of water or flown high enough that she’d be rendered unconscious. If her lava form could be rendered unmovable, she would also cool and be left powerless.
The ability to create volcanoes and earthquakes is extremely range limited and Amara cannot access tectonic plates outside a few city blocks. The use of this part of her mutation is taxing and difficult to control for her 17 year old self. Unfortunately, her ability to move the earth’s crust and create mini-canos is linked to her emotions and earthquakes happen when she is feeling extreme rage or panic/fear. Magma is at this time unable to create magma blasts while not in her “Lava Form” thus leaving her vulnerable to being attacked and injured, possibly causing death. Abilities/Skills:
Due to being raised as nobility in the ancient Roman settlement of Nova Roma, Magma is an expert in Roman culture, a skilled swordswoman, fluent in Old Latin (only language she knows) and she received a classic education in affairs of state, philosophy, military, agriculture, and literature.Occupation

She’s new meat at Xavier’s. No friends/foes/loversCharacter History:
Amara was born the only child to Lucius Antonius Aquilla in an isolated and hidden part of Brazil called Nova Roma and led to believe that her mother died during child birth. Senator Aquilla, for the safety of his young daughter, sent Amara to live with a native tribe in the jungles outside Nova Roma. They raised her as a daughter of their people, teaching her how to survive like an Amazon and instilling her with the knowledge of her people. She lived her hidden life for many years, content to be with her adopted people and well out of harms way of the tyrant that lead her birth city.
The Black Priestess, ruler of Nova Roma, has a fondness for fire and human sacrifices. Her obsession with tossing young maidens to their fiery deaths was the whole reason Amara’s father had sent her away, not realizing his beautiful daughter would be thrown into harm's way regardless. She was captured during an excursion through the jungle and forcefully brought back to face her doom; The Black Priestess had decided Amara would be the next sacrifice thrown to her death.
It was when Amara was tossed into the burning pit of lava that her strange little life got even stranger; her latent mutant powers took a hold of her burning body and saved her life, turning the young teen into Magma. Being a quick study came in useful for the teenager, but this was only able to take her so far with learning to control her mutant abilities. Mood swings followed teenage hormones and her home city could only handle so many forced earthquakes that her father had to make a decision about his daughter. Nova Roma couldn’t teach her the skills she needed to control her mutation and the tribe she had spent much of her life with wasn’t equipped to deal with her either.
She was now seventeen; having struggled through the early years of her mutation as best she could, while continuing her regular studies. Uproar started near the outskirts of the city, a large black demon landed and spat out strangers on the outside of their city. Amara’s father met with the strangers in a lengthy conversation about her mutant abilities, lengthily due to the language barrier, eventually deciding it was in everyone’s best interest to have Amara accompany the X-Men to America and learn under the supervision of Charles Xavier and his teachers.
