Tyler Monroe 21, male
It was just a regular commuting college day for Tyler as he boarded the train to take him from down-town to upperton. Being a secret gifted with the power of teleportation, one might expect the young adult to just teleport himself all the way back home. The thing was? He was tired of being special. Especially when being special could get you arrested now a days. Ever since gifteds were discovered nearly fifty years ago, the whole world has dubbed them as bad, no matter what sort of good person may be using them! This gifted was just tired of it all and wished to be normal, but knew deep down that was not the case, but he could pretend it was. As he stood among the supposedly 'normal' crowd of people on the train, he couldn't help but think the one thought that comforted him the most at that moment: they all thought he was normal, which is what he'd always wanted. No fear of being judged for something he couldn't control, no fear of being arrested, no fear of-
The train going faster than normal?
Tyler's gaze glanced around him as he felt rather than saw how fast the train was moving over the tracks. The faces of some didn't seem to notice quite yet, either because they were preocuppied with their own problems or technology in their ears; but others seemed to notice the uncanny swaying and occasional bump of the cart. That wasn't supposed to happen. When Tyler's brain finally registered with what his eyes were seeing, he in fact saw how unnaturally speedy this train was going, and how all the buildings seemed to turn into blurs with each passing second. The lights started flickering on and off as the male glanced upward, before looking at his hand gripping the bar; it had turned white as a ghost.
"RUNAWAY TRAIN!" A random voice yelled, causing Tyler to snap out of his stupor to panic himself. He should have taken the subway! Wait no, what was he thinking? He could help! But how? Use his powers? No way! Before he could even consider any of this, Tyler found himself being shoved as people around him began to panic. He lost his gripping on the rail for a moment, all the while attempting to make sense of what was happening.
