I'll make a new post cuz I don't wanna risk messing up the code for the first app~
Name: Edmund Adequio
Network ID: GoldFlurry
Edmund is a klutz. He has really good intentions, but always finds a way to screw up. His tight group of friends growing up have always accepted him as he is, so he doesn't think lowly of himself despite his constant mistakes. A nervous wreck, simple stuff such as messing up a word in a sentence keeps escalating into bigger and bigger issues. Deep down, however, is a lovely young man who brings any group together, a strong innate leadership that's usually overshadowed by his nerves and clumsiness. When he has his act together, however, he can be really eloquent, almost like a politician. Gold is a completely different story. His fans' support has a boosting effect to the young man, his confidence shooting up as he becomes somewhat of an arrogant prick. Its unknown if this is just a character for the camera or the way he really sees himself in ARC, but the result is still the same: Gold is a charming go-getter whose antics bring in more and more regular viewers after every live stream.
Edmund has always been quite an average kid. He attends Prospect Preparatory and, while he has his tight-knit group of friends, hasn't always been the most popular. He's kind of a class clown, wether he likes it or not: his constant class naps, trips down the stairs or calling the teacher 'mom' always manage to get a hearty chuckle from his classmates, which he appreciates as humbly as he can. Low-key into gaming, he's always owned at least one gaming console and follows the most popular streamers. When ARC Network was introduced (or technically, re-introduced) Edmund saved his allowance for a couple of months, sold some old stuff, and managed to get his hands on one of them. He was hooked immediately, one of the main reasons being the fact that he was a Cipher. The rush of his first escape from the Denko Authority left a lasting impression on him, and it wasn't long before he started taunting them into a chase. Edmund started a streaming channel on Twotch.tv and quickly grew in popularity, recording his misbehavings and constant run-ins with the Authority, as well as just plain-old gaming now and again. GoldStreams was an instant hit, with thousands checking in every day to watch him. Gold's future is uncertain and, while he's not a firm believer of the rumors of ghosts and monsters in the ARC Network, he welcomes any challenge that gives him a rush (or a new subscriber).
Cipher - Power Gauntlets
Gold's Cipher takes the form of a pair of cybernetic arms that grow below his own. On each arm's inner forearm there's a numeric password panel. Inputing specific combinations make the arms transform into different modes:
0000 - Passive Mode: Both arms contract into X's body. The password panels are still present where the arms would come out, and Gold can press the same combination to call them back.
6995 - Flame Mode: Exhaust pipes protude from the elbows outwards, releasing powerful flames that can be used to boost X's movement or as a method of attack.
2664 - Pulse Mode: The entire hand is replaced by a Pulse Cannon, a weapon that fires widespread, short distance shockwaves.
5133 - Grapple Mode: The arm's mass increases exponentially, with the hand itself growing to the radius of a pizza tray. Strength and defenses are greatly increased, but speed becomes lackluster.
7550 - Burst Mode: The fingertips open up, revealing rapid-fire, yet weak, energy guns. In this state the hands become frailer, so its adviced to use at a distance.
9999 - Golden Blade: Both arms must input this code for it to work. A giant blade is crafted from both arms, causing them to detach from the body. Gold can wield this sword easily, despite its humongous size (~4 feet). After 5 minutes, this Mode ends, and the arms retract into the body for an hour cooldown.
Misc.: Edmund works part-time as a waiter at a local café near his school.
Edmund is very near-sighted in real life.
