Danielle Moonstar Nicknames/Aliases-
Dani | MirageAge-
22Date of Birth-
Independent: Dani has always been a fiercely independent person, from when she was a young girl to present day. This independence shines through in everything from her choice of fashion (or lack of), to her ability and choice to primarily do things on her own and making mistakes with little regret because she needed to get the result (good or bad) on her own terms.
Shameless: Being demure is for other
girls. Dani doesn’t have much patience for the cute shy girl routine; she’s outspoken with a strong opinion and this is one girl that booted modesty out the window a long time ago.
Assertive: If you need someone to kick people into gear, Dani could certainly be your girl. While she’s alright with following the lead of someone else, she won’t hold back from taking charge (or trying) if she feels there is a better way to go about something. Nor will she hold back with her opinion, whether it reflects positively or negatively on the intended target. She’s got a sharp tongue and little to no filter.
Loyal: Dani is as loyal as they come, but only if you’ve earned that privilege. While she’s openly friendly with everyone (unless you’re a dick) and a total team player, there are a select few that have made it into her trust circle and she would lay down everything she has for those people.
Outdoorsy: Creatures of the earth, rocks and trees, down to the most annoying bug - nature and everything that goes with it, is Dani’s first love. Underneath the tough tomboy exterior hides an even tougher tomboy with a flower crown. If Dani didn’t find hippies completely nauseating, she might be one, but since she’d rather punch one in the face, we’ll just stick to calling her a nature girl. If you can’t find her, she’s probably in the forest hugging a tree or having a snuggle with a fawn. #squadgoals. Likes-

Empathic Illusion CastingDescription-
Dani can create 3D images from people’s minds. This manifests as the person’s worst nightmare/greatest fear, and greatest desire. Although her power works on probing the minds of others, she isn’t a true telepath; but can initiate the probing of another mind to find and project an image. Dani’s 3D images manifest a lot like holograms, see through and able to be seen by others, but very real and solid to the actual ‘target’. She can have multiple targets at once; each person would have a different worst fear (or heart’s desire) manifest before them. She can even create illusions by channeling residual thought and emotional impressions in an area.Limits-
Dani cannot pull for specific images, but more a general idea of something to manifest. I.E. “greatest fear” over “I know you’re really afraid of spiders, here is an eight legged monster”. Afraid of pink poodles? Surprise! Dani’s illusions take a bunch of concentration, the moment she isn’t focused on keeping the image around, it fizzles away. Dani has to have her ‘target’ in sight. If they’re on the other side of a solid wall, she cannot create an illusion from them.
Dani’s illusions have a 60 yard (55 metre) range, but again needs to have nothing to obscure her from her target. This would be very effective in the open, say a baseball field, where a tightly packed city block she would have some challenges.
For Dani’s illusions directed towards teeps, it would stand to reason that depending on the level of teep her illusions would have little effect. If the teep was a lower level OR new to their abilities, it would be easier for Dani to keep them fooled longer than say someone like Jean. For someone like Jean, Dani would really have to take them by surprise to even lightly convince them of danger.
Dani’s illusions against an empaths would be, in theory, useless against someone with so much control over their own emotions. Cast on someone in the presence of an empath would also be more difficult if that empath’s mutation directly affected the emotions of those around them.
Dani can activate illusions for up to 5 intended
targets at the same time, pulling their worst nightmares from their minds and into reality. Other people in the area not targeted would see these images as well, but they would be flimsy and noticeable as just an illusion.Power Name-
Description: Mirage also has a quasi-telepathic talent that allows her to form a rapport with animals; primates, canines, lupines, felines, and avians. She can sense their feelings, consciously perceive images in their minds, and even see through their eyes. She has also been able to exist peacefully with wild animals. This ability also allows her to communicate with mutants that shift into animal forms.Limits-
Dani can pull images for animals to see, as well, but unlike the illusions she casts for humans, only the animal can see it. However, since an animal's ability to conceptualize is highly limited, she is limited as to what she telepathically can learn from an animal.Power Name-
As a by-product of her illusion casting she can focus her psionic powers into energy arrows which will stun an opponent by disrupting their central nervous system, or force them to relive a traumatic memory.
Currently, Dani uses her custom Forge bow to shoot her Psionic Arrows. This is due to the amount of energy it takes her to create just the arrow itself, but in the future (perhaps) she would be able to create a bow along with the arrows. Being that these “arrows” are created psionically, they do have a directional targeting aspect. This means that Dani can create and fire an arrow at someone, with the ability to follow them should they run and try to hide behind someone/something (assuming they don’t obscure her vision with a building). Limits-
This is still a skill she is working hard on. Using her psionic arrows leaves her weakened and dealing with sharp, blinding headaches. This leaves her trying to suffer through pain and not an ability she uses often in actual battles, not until she can overcome the headaches.
Dani’s arrow range is as long as a longbow shooter would be able to do, which gives her a 400 yard (366 metres) range. ONLY assuming there is nothing blocking her way, she needs to be able to see her target. This is sort of her “final boss battle” move and will only be able to create one in a fight, two IF she really pushes it.Skills & Abilities-
Mirage is a better than average athlete, in large part because of all the times she has spent on her own in the wilderness. She has excellent knowledge of hand-to-hand combat due to growing up at Xavier's, a great knowledge of primitive weapons use. i.e. spears, bow, knives, swords, clubs and axes. Dani is a good marksman with a rifle and excels at archery.
Dani has enhanced durability; Enhanced durability in the sense of - she can take a beating and her sheer pig headedness will pick her up and she’ll keep fighting. Instead of, can be shot at and the bullets bounce off. Pain tolerance is higher than your average girl, cultivated by a life of roughhousing, falling off horses and being beaten on in training. She is also a particularly good horseback rider and swimmer. Primarily will use a bow or tomahawks in battle.
Dani is fairly tom-boyish in nature and prefers to dress for functionality. Her wardrobe is primarily shorts and a t-shirt, but will sub in pants when required. She also throws in nods to her culture, this includes tassels/fringe and feathers. Her long black hair tends to be worn in two braids and she had a fondness for wearing a red-bandana. For special occasions, Dani will even dress up and likes to still to bold dress choices that usually end up being red.
Although at first glance she seems fairly plain, there is something about her presence and the way she carries herself that makes people check themselves, carrying herself with easy confidence (probably due to her lack of fucks to give). Dani has a very athletic build due to extensive time combat training and spending time in the wilderness. Gear-
Dani prefers to go into a fight fairly well armed, from carrying her specially made by Forge bow, a pair of scary looking hunting knives and as a nod to her culture Dani has a pair of tomahawks that she carries. She’s a decent hand-to-hand fighter, having grown up training at the school and knows how to pick up and use a handful of different weapons should she run out of her own weapons. She does have a pair of thick biker boots she leans towards wearing almost all the time, except when she’s barefoot or playing dress up. Additional Information-
Dani has spent a great deal of her time working at controlling her abilities. In the beginning she was constantly terrified of bringing the people's nightmares around her to life, but is happy to say this is no longer a fear. Now she can move forward to accomplish new goals and put her energy towards helping the next generation.
Even if Dani's mutation had nothing to do with fuzzy critters, she would still have a great love of animals and the wilderness. Horses are a large passion in her life and she likes to spread that joy with the students at Xavier's. Dani has zero tolerance for people that go deliberately out of their way to harm others and will not hesitate to put them back in their place.

BRIGHTWIND - Her horseHistory-
Dani was born part of the Cheyenne nation. Her abilities manifested at puberty, but she was unable to control them. The first time they had manifested, she saw the image of her parents dying. With her lack of control Dani couldn’t stop herself from creating images of fear among her people, inevitably causing them to avoid her. She turned inward, seeking love from her parents and friendship through the animals she could now understand.
Further into Dani’s blossoming teenage years, her parents disappeared on a hunting trip. Her own fears manifested themselves into a demon bear and she blamed the phantom creature for the loss of her parents. Her Grandfather thought it would be best if Dani went to live with some of her parent’s friends and their son, Pat. Unfortunately, after only a week, her mutation got the better of her. Their Sunday dinner was full of Pat's worst fear; Dani accidentally summoning it after being provoked by the boy.
Dani fled to the mountains, seeking out her Grandfather. It had been three months of living in the mountains with her grandfather, before coming across a wounded stallion. With the help of her animal empathic abilities, she managed to get the creature back to her grandfather. With weeks of care, night and day, the creature was ready to go back to his home, but he refused. Dani decided to call him Brightwind.
As Dani’s control over her abilities grew stronger, her Grandfather felt it was time for her to move on. She had spent enough time secluded on the mountains with the old man and now she needed to be with her new kind, mutants. Putting his faith in Xavier and the school, he prepared Dani for her new chapter. Gathering her things, including Brightwind, Dani set off for the school.
Dani was fortunate enough to be welcomed into a friend group of students that had been growing up at the school and spent the next six years of her life training and honing her abilities. While fears of being overcome by her mutation were no longer an issue, the world had started to turn on mutants in even a worse way and left Dani fearing for the well being of the next generation.
Fast forward through her everyday life of stable management, fun with teammates and rescue missions, Dani found herself between a rock and an even bigger rock. She couldn’t recall how it had happened, perhaps a telepath could pull that from her mind, but Dani had been taken hostage and caged for the past seven months. It truly felt like a lifetime of being beaten, drugged and forced to fight against the mutant hating trainees the Purifiers dug up from all corners of the city.
In between drug induced naps, Dani would try and get a grasp on where she was and how many others were caged with her. The numbers were constantly changing, either due to more mutants being taken from the streets or some of them finally succumbing to death. Realizing soon after it would only be a matter of time until it was her turn and being mildly surprised it hadn’t happened yet.

God, did she wish
It had been days, or so she thought, since the last time they had come banging on her cage door, but she finally must have started moving around enough in her sleep that they knew she wasn’t dead.
Yet. There was always a yet
Perhaps these people
wouldn’t simply tire of using her for target practice, or her body would finally break down enough that it would just give into the silence her drug induced sleep created. She missed her family, her friends… even all those students with their terrible little attitudes. She had been fighting to save them from fates such as this one, how hysterical that she
was the one rotting away in a cage.
Hysterical, but only if your sense of humour had taken a severe beating. ”You think this is funny?”
The creature with the metal bat hissed at her through his sneer and only then did she realize she was actually
laughing. Clinging to her insanity a little longer, Mirage finally opened her eyes to peer up at the person she had fondly dubbed ‘T-1000’
. Life in this… place… was made a little more amusing once she had personally given everyone nicknames. ”Your face is funny.”
She muttered the seventh grade insult with a raspy voice, the words followed by a brittle cough. There was a brief pause, before the man raised his bat and connected with the bars. Body flinched as the bat connected with the metal cage, a reflex to the horrible noise it produced. ”I was really hoping for some waffles today.”
She continued as the man fumbled for the right key.
Oh goodie, it was time for her turn.
Before she could consider any type of resistance, the long taser the guards wore on their dorky little utility belts was shoved through the bars and painfully into her stomach. She was so unbelievably sick of being tasered. Body twitched and spasmed as she let her eyes flutter shut, pushing her body to still and wait.
She would only have a moment.
