You need to get a character into a squad.

Travellers aren't gypsies it was something of a big deal to some people a while back, Travellers have very little in common with gypsies, for one thing they refer to themselves as the Travelling community, secondly many are settled and thirdly they are officially travellers they aren't gypsies.
In fact calling them gypsies is an offense, it even says so on that page

They face prejudice for being travellers and being considered lowlifes when in fact many simply want to provide for their families

However they are known for their heavy pollution and severe littering which they leave for others to clean up.

It's a balancing act good and bad but they have very little in common with gypsies which is a term associated with Mainland Europe and I actually have never heard used of in relation to the Irish community

Yipes... Gotta change it now... Thanks for the head's up! At any rate though, I think I can emphecise that his Gypsy heritage is focused through the Egyptian line and change the Irish to Roma altogether...

... You'd be valuable when it comes to research lol

Hellion's correct. I'm really trying to steer people toward concentrating on a smaller number of characters. Toward that end, back in March I posted some new guidelines for the registry:

Oops.. Sorry about that!! Do you think the Masterminds would accept Otieno? I think only he qualifies.

Well they're short members you should apply. Also look and see if there are any other valid openings in the casting call.
As I recall you can only have two characters in a team (prevents people making up teams to put characters into) so keep an eye out for a place that the other two would fit

Roberto's profile clarified:

Hero Name: Azul

Full Name: Roberto Cortez

Nick Names: Robbie, Berto, Azul

Gender: Male

Age: Sixteen

Birthday/year: January 25th

Marital Status: Bachelor; casual dater

Spouse: None.

Past/Present Lovers: Only ever been in one relationship at the age of twelve.

Current Interests: Has had interest in Cameron Ashton, Mark Jefferies, Jorge Ponce and Kenji Arihiro. Two of these have gone on unmentioned, one just never quite left the ground and one is in limbo.

Hair: Roberto’s hair falls to the bottom of his neck and is usually left unstyled. It is straight, albeit thick, and frosty white with a tinge of blue hue.

Eyes: Roberto’s eyes are large and almond-shaped, giving him the appearance of being more of a youngster than he is. The irises are deep blue.

Origin: Roberto went between Brooklyn, New York City and Puerto Rico in his youth. He tends to back-and-forth his place of birth when asked and is not actually sure himself though has never asked.

Language: Roberto speaks English and Spanish. He understands more Spanish than he gives himself credit for but cannot speak on command or when he’s flustered (do not mistake being flustered for the few seconds he uses to prepare to curse someone out). He is familiar with the regional dialects of both languages and has a basic command of Brazilian Portuguese from his training in Capoeira.

Blood Type: O Positive.

Height: For having such a big attitude, Roberto is slightly shorter than average. Standing at 5’6, it never shows—he never adjusts his neck to look up to taller people and manages to somehow look them in the eye. Very tall people, however, will see what appears to be a very defiant look from him, however, because he is looking through his top lashes. He has been known to make himself taller by using water.

Weight/Body Structure/Physical Faults: Roberto normally weighs 130 lbs but looks like he should weigh less because he is so skinny. In all honesty, his weight naturally fluctuates between 125 lbs to 150 lbs as he absorbs or releases water into the surrounding environment to reach an equilibrium that is agreeable with nature. He is at the age of just fleshing out and has a little-less-than-toned meat, but he’s definitely solid. He looks like less of a runner and more of a scrapper, but looks are deceiving in that his martial arts training has him faster than the average fighting individual. His body structure is very unlikely to change for periods longer than a few hours due to the fact that Roberto is so resistant to that out of fear.

Race/Species: Roberto is Puerto Rican and of 3 distinct ethnicities—Taíno, West African and Spanish. He does not particularly look like anyone else in his immediate family so he and his brother are often thought of as being adopted, though that is the furthest thing from the truth.

Parents/Elders/Guardians: Roberto was raised by his parents Veronica and Anthony as well as his grandmother Elisa, who lives with them.

Siblings: Roberto has a single brother Juan and is unaware that his parents are expecting a little girl or that he has a half-brother through his father (his father is also unaware).

Friends/Allies: Roberto is more alone than most people realize, as he never really lets people in to his perspective of his own personal life. His friends include Jorge Ponce, Chip Chesterfield, Sofia de la Cruz, Travis ‘Smith,’ Faye Foxblade and Claire Aedhamair. While not friends, he feels he can count on Mark Jefferies to not screw him over and considers himself in alliance with Kimberly Cho after she made nice with Jorge Ponce. He trusts his roommate, Otieno Zene, a lot and although they bicker to the amusement of others, he would probably choose to room with him each year. At one point, he had a crush on Cameron Ashton but after realizing it would probably go nowhere, he settled for what could be counted as friendship.

Enemies: Roberto, for all his feistiness, actually has very few enemies—if any. His former best friend Lucas fits the bill, though he does not think of Lucas that way. His brother Juan is an aggressor of sorts, but he can’t see him as anything but his baby brother.

Beliefs/Religion: Roberto’s family is Catholic, though Roberto himself could give less of a care about religion or anything terribly spiritual. Metaphysical, yes. Spiritual, no.

Career/Past Careers: Roberto is actually something of a hustler. When he was younger, he used to recycle bottles for local restaurants and hand most of the profit to his parents, who have since created a savings account in Roberto’s name. He has not been able to pursue this particular entrepreneurial venture since the depression of his first and only lover having been taken away, but plans to make a business plan with the idea and appeal to investors.

Dreams/Life Goals: Roberto dreams of being free, whatever that means. He wants to be able to have no obligation to anyone while pursuing his own interests. His material dreams change all the time, but he sees himself in the role of a teacher more often than not. His material goals point to being a businessman.

Hobbies: Listening to music, playing sax and trumpet, watching movies and people-watching.

Likes: Cool dark rooms, hot beaches in the evening, the Wicked musical, adventure books (you’ll never catch him reading them though), learning about fitness, confident guys and (not even a telepath could get this from him) Mark Jefferies.

Loves: Practicing Capoeira, running, making out, flirting (only in private), money (love-hate relationship), sculpting ice and drawing.

Dislikes: Fire (on principal), pretentious royals, classism (thank Sofia for that), small dogs (unless they can hold their own), lovey-dovey situations, conceited people (he considers ripping them apart an Olympic sport) and bullies (he considers ripping *them* apart a heroic deed).

Loathes: He loathes English classes with a passion because the teachers never let him express himself with his beliefs of how the language should be. At one point, he abhorred biology class because he would have to deal with Mark Jefferies, but he now hates it because he doesn’t like dissecting animals.

Fears: He fears never being able to be himself after a transformation of his physical state. Since he’s learned that he can in fact make himself appear female by adding more water to his chest (Roberta) and has done so on covert missions that required it, he fears that he may one day advance to the point where he can change more things and won’t be able to get to the Roberto he grew up as (or that he might one day be stuck as a puddle). It’s actually for this reason that Roberto refuses to give in to anyone teaching him to heal anything larger than a small scrape.
Another thing he fears is letting his father and himself down. Despite his attitude toward his peers, he is very respectful of his elders and he feels that he has to conform to the expectations of whomever he is talking to. He is looked at well by quite a few higher ups in his father’s department.

Strengths: Roberto is extremely intelligent as it pertains to social situations and such the like. If he were able to put up with bullshit without gagging or punching someone, he would make an excellent event planner as he usually knows how to place people of various temperaments around and is efficient at getting things done. This social intelligence also benefits him as a salesman/speaker should he be inclined to realize his own ability to see others for who they are rather than their pretences (though it does help his bitchcraft when he gets especially testy with someone). He does wonders in smooth-talk when he holds his temper and is not a bad athlete by a long shot.

Weakness: Roberto’s social intelligence usually gets him in trouble since he uses it for evil. Dubbed ‘bitchcraft’, Roberto has a tendency to know just what to say to make someone feel very bad and since he does not recognize his own talent, he often is left wondering why the target took the criticism so hard and ran away crying. His temper is also a big thing and since he’s not one for bullshit he can usually find a reason to flare up. Sad part is that he isn’t even an empath. He’s terrible with most fashion (though in his defense he can usually pull a good outfit out of his butt by sticking to the ‘black slacks-button shirt-black shoe’ template) and wouldn’t know high-fashion if it smacked him off the runway. He’s also bad at taking criticism from those he considers stupid or unworthy of dishing it.

Good Qualities: He does not let someone get bullied if he is around. He would be considered ‘lawful good’ in most situations since being raised by a strict father and it shows in the way he can never stand by and let the underdog be terrorized, even if he knows he’ll be smashed into the ground for it (he is usually good about taking pain anyway). He has a very strong stance against cigarettes and drugs especially toward minors. And though he does not actually care for ‘the law’ as it were and has broken it many, many times, he finds himself standing for it when it makes sense. His devotion to family and those he considers close is unmatched (hence why he is unable to see his brother as a villain or even his former best friend), though his trust, once broken, is nearly impossible to get back.

Bad Habits: Roberto can be stubborn to a fault. Even if he knows he is wrong, if someone goes about trying to correct him in a way he does not like, he will stay on the boat until it sinks beneath the sea knowing that he isn’t helping anyone. He at times refuses to see his family as having done any wrong when it comes to the outside world and so ignores that his father is the director of a branch of the CIA that is rumored to have been involved in unspeakable incidents or that his mother may have once had an alcohol issue. He also has a tendency to cater knuckle-sandwiches to anyone who approaches his culture in the wrong way and he usually delivers quick and strong.

Turn Ons: Roberto is a sucker for a confident-acting guy. He’s long since realized that real confidence is far and few between, but so long as they have a positive outlook and can command some sort of presence, he is drawn to them; he likes the social charisma. He likes guys who are not self-depreciating and can make the world reconsider the meaning of the word sexy as they confidently strut down the street having just woken up and are wearing nothing more than sweats and a t-shirt. He likes guys his age or older who fit the bill of a loose-cannon and can handle his own. On the flip-side, however, he looks at guys with bad habits (smoking, bad attitudes, etc.) who can do it with a ‘bad-boy appeal’ as a challenge and are drawn to them.

Turn Offs: Bad hygiene and lack of fitness. He’s not looking for a military guy and doesn’t mind guys with a bit of extra meat, but being unhealthily large or small and not doing anything about it makes him not interested automatically. Also, control freaks—he can’t deal with someone who tries restricting his freedoms. He will let a controller know this in a heartbeat.

Normal Talents: He has very good intuition for making choices that may make his present bad, but will be good for his future. On that vain, he is a damn good card player. He has a knack for electronics and circuitry but has yet to make anything more than shock capsules or basic level switchboards. He ice skates well enough (something you’ll almost never see him do unless he is in an extremely good mood) and can do the whole ‘walk-on-water’ thing—though his mother has forbidden him to do it. He does it anyway when she isn’t around and he wants to show off.

Supernatural Powers & Abilities: Has the ability to control water in its various states (liquid, solid, gas) as well as transform into water in said states. He can use his transforming himself as a means of losing body mass (say leaving the water that would have formed his arms behind) or gaining body mass (by maybe condensing the water it would take to recreate his normal form).

Roberto can control water while he is in his normal form also. This is achieved by using accompanying body gestures or purely mental means (he needs to have complete focus to do this). If he's high enough to the clouds he can cause localized rain by pressuring the water from the clouds.

While in the form of vapor, ice, or liquid, he can only communicate through primative "telempathy". He can only send basic words and feelings--small visuals even. Unfortunately in this form, he cant receive anything telepathic/empathic; he'll just have to hear what someone is saying.

Temperament: Roberto can be very relaxed or very intense. When he is not agitated, he can deal with people well enough and be taken seriously, however when he is peeved, a sense of urgency on the part of the other party tends to make him only that much more irate. It’s a no-win situation, it would seem. Most of the time, however, he’s just somewhat impatient. He is most easygoing when he’s in a somewhat romantic/sexual setting, as he feels very comfortable with the ease and flow of *very* casual conversation.

Background: Roberto is, and always has been separate from the world around him. While he does not fit the normal stereotype of a misfit, he just does not click right with unfamiliar people and situations. He is very discriminate about what is or is not allowed to come into his reality and will fight off a hostile entity to the death to protect said reality (ie: friends, family, home, etc.). While he does not feel a part of anything, that which he perceives as belonging to him will be protected as long as he is around. This mentality is a result of his father's VERY grounded expectations.

Roberto grew up in a medium-sized apartment in uptown Brooklyn mostly because his mother and grandmother lived in that area and wanted to stay close to their extended family even though there was enough money to move to a suburb. He grew up in very close proximity to his aunts, uncles and cousins and as a result does not understand *not* having such close bonds with extended family.

He was considered a 'problem youth' when he began questioning the authority of his teachers starting in second grade. This was due in part to bullying—he was targeted because of his appearance and inability to 'just choose a damn race and stick with it'—and his response to said bullying. His peers taunted and picked at him and he made them hurt with his fists. People eventually backed off when they realized he was not an easy target, but he still kept his sharp tongue. He even began to make real friends, but with his new sense of guardedness he was never completely free of external threats and his teachers became the target of his saltiness.

Due to his 'problem status,' he went to a few different public schools before being placed finally in a private school in Manhattan that was designed specifically to disarm students of their 'personality weapons' by teaching them to control and channel their aggression and antisocial arsenal for productive means. At this accelerated school, he took an interest in business and was taught how to turn his trash talk into the foundation of a recycling program. He was put on the Principal's List for implementing and carrying out his business plan and actually making a profit from it.

None of this helped him to feel less alone, however, even though he was practically a model individual as far as his family was concerned. Reformed and focused, everyone thought. He thought it was bullshit and sought to show them by becoming tricky—sneaking onto construction sites and hacking the bulldozers into the holes they dug, pulling the fire alarms of random downtown office buildings, teaching younger students how to make and fire catapults from plastic bottles and balloons. His tricks were relatively harmless, but could get him into a lot of trouble if he were caught. Little did he know, he was being watched. He was later approached by a traveling woman who said, “calm down before you hurt yourself.” He saw Lillian Thunderfoot on his first day of classes 3 years later. His watchful father, he saw everyday.

He discovered his powers when he first went swimming in seventh grade. During that time, he also saved the boy who would become his short-lived boyfriend. In 3 short months, he learned how to open up, how to trust someone and how to just be himself when faced with someone who wanted to know him from the inside out. While there was not even ever the mention of sex, the bond was a strong one and was severed with more force by the only thing stronger than their love: Parents. Never in his life did he cry so much.

Not willing to disgrace the memory of the boy he loved, he came out. He had a reputation of being charming and exotic—his light hair and blue eyes were now something to be in awe of rather than ridiculed—so it was a shock to everyone else and the recoil sent him further into aloneness. He learned of his electronics-savvy when he used the web like any other kid to get away from the world and created shock capsules that would not go off unless they were in the presence of heavy moisture. He would have probably become a hacker (and subsequently a H4xx0r) if he had the motivation to continue and didn't let little things frustrate him.

He was later issued an invitation to Poseidon Prep Academy. The rest is history.
