Character's personality: He's artistic and a lover. He cares deeply for people but it often leads to pain. He's of recent become dark, moody and depressive. If you can get past that he's friendly and easy going.
Character's physical description/Play by: He's 5'9" and ways about 193lbs with Blue eyes and Red hair. He has large red wings on his back and a scar over his heart. He used to have a tattoo on his arm but it's faded with the emmergance of his powers. ((I'll alter a pic to be him soon, when I update and reknew his journal (I'm restarting it, and correcting etc. Jared Leto ok?)
Character history: He grew up in a large country pumpkin family. Two of his older siblings are X-men. When they left he took over the role of the 'father' of the family. Taking care of the younger kids. When his powers developed he hid it from his family using his wings and voice as a stage gimmick. He one day Fell in love with Julia calbot, the daughter of a feuding family. Unfortunately a fight broke out with the family and the father of the family struck him down. (Due to having found him in a state of undress with his daughter). She dragged his body to the River and they fell in, the pair sinking to the deepest part of the River. Julia drowned just as Jay's healing powers kicked in. He woke to find her dead in his arms, dragging her ashore he was unable to revive her. Failing he tried to kill himself using a sharp stick, but his healing powers wouldn't allow it. Angel found him and helped him carry julia back to the guthrie house. After Julia's death Jay tried (and failed) several times to kill himself, until his mother ended up taking him to the Xavier institute where she thought he could get the help he needed. (I'd like to play him from just arriving, if thats ok, if not, just tell me roughly where he is comic wise. Thanks)
Sample RP or sample tag (Third person): Jay looked at his Mother, his feels clear to be read on his face. He was not happy. He climbed out of the car pulling his guitar on to his back. He ignored his mother as she told him he didn't need the guitar it was just a pit stop so he replied simply "I'm not leaving it behind.....it's all I have" he said firmly. He walked across the petrol stations forecourt towards the bathroom shifting the guitar on his back. It had been easier to carry it there before the wings had come through. Sighing sadly he set it aside as he used the facilities. Washing his hands he studied his reflection in the mirror, his hand shattered it before he even thought about what he was doing and the shard of mirror was cutting through his wrists before he even registered. "Ah damn" he muttered watching it heal. He wiped his wrist clean before grabbing his guitar and headed back out to his mum. "I'm no X-man, and I'm sure Paige and Sam wouldn't want me there........." his eyes rolled as she gave him the usual 'of course they do' speech.
Sample journal entry (First person): I don't write journals. It's not something I do. Song writing......... that I'm comfortable with. But I guess if this makes mum happy and gets her off my back and stops mum clipping my wings, it's worth it. Although I've no idea what it is they want me to write. 'It still hurts that julias gone, thats shes dead because of me, but Im learning to cope'? As if...........

This part is the bio for the one in the LC
Real Name: Joshua Guthrie Nicknames: Jay or Josh
Origin Known Relatives: Thomas Zebulon Guthrie (father, deceased), Lucinda Guthrie (mother), Cannonball (Sam Guthrie) (brother), Paige Guthrie (Husk, sister), Joelle Guthrie (sister), Elizabeth Guthrie (sister), Aero (Melody Guthrie) (sister), Jebediah Guthrie (brother), Lewis Guthrie (brother), two unnamed sisters, Lucas Guthrie (uncle), Ray Jr (adopted brother) Origin: Josh's mutant powers manifested while the X-Men visited the Guthrie home.
History: Jay is the son of Thomas Zebulon Guthrie, also referred to as "Ty" and "Zeke," and Lucinda Guthrie. Jay's older siblings Sam (Cannonball) and Paige (Husk) are mutants as well, and both have been members of the X-Men. Another of their siblings, Jeb, has developed the mutant ability to project electricity from his eyes, as well as his sister Melody (a.k.a. Aero). He has several other human brothers and sisters, and his whole family is generally hated by his home town due to the fact that they all seem to be developing mutant powers. When Sam and Paige left home to become X-men, Jay took over the role of the father in the house, feeling that he had to protect his younger brothers and sisters. When he himself developed mutant powers, (red, angel-like wings that allow him to fly, strong regenerative abilities, and can vocally mimic any sound he hears or imagines; for example, he can sound like a whole choir when he sings.) he hid them from his family. However, when performing in his band he exposed his wings to the crowd as a 'stage gimmick'. In the Uncanny X-Men story arc "She Lies With Angels" (issues #437-441, written by Chuck Austen), Jay fell in love with Julia Cabot, but due to a long feud between the Guthries and the Cabots a fight broke out. Jay was struck down by Julia's father, who had acquired and modified some super powered armour. Believing Jay to be dead, Julia dragged Jay's body to the river. She wrapped his arms around her, heading for the deepest part of the river. The two sank to the river's bottom and Julia subsequently drowned. Neither Jay nor Julia were aware of Jay's mutant regenerative powers, but when Jay sank to the bottom of the river, these powers manifested. Jay awoke at the bottom of the river with Julia in his arms. He swam to the surface with her and brought her to the riverbank. When he discovered she was dead, he tried (unsuccessfully due to his healing factor) to stab himself in the heart with a sharp piece of wood. Warren Worthington arrived on the scene, found Jay, and helped him carry Julia's body back to the Guthrie house. After Julia's death, Jay attempted to kill himself a few more times, hoping his healing factor would fail. Eventually his mother sent him to the Xavier Institute against his will. Jay speculated this was just so she wouldn't feel guilt if he tried to hurt himself again.
This icarus is going to be a little AU. After joining the Xavier institute he didn't swap teams with Whither, he remained on the Hellions sqaud until he suddenly went missing and was no longer traceable using cerebral. He, vanished. If and when he were to show up again. He may be a very different boy to the one they knew
When Icarus went missing he had walked through a portal into a lab. The man promised to help him be with his lost love in return Icarus would do him some favours. Icarus agreed. Sometimes the figure appears before him as Mr Sinister, other times Apocalypse, But he has been known to be Magneto, Beast and other villians. Currently the figure is favouring Apocolypse
Description Height: 5'9" Weight: 193 lbs (87.5 kg) Eyes: blue Hair: Red Wings: Red Scars: One on his chest from a suicide attempt, and a fading tattoo on his arm.
Powers Wings: Icarus can fly by means of his natural wings. Fully feathered like a birds, the wings flexible skeletal structure, enabling him to press them to the back of his torso and legs with only the slightest bulge visible under his clothing. Icarus flies by flapping his wings, as a bird. It can be assumed like Angel, Icarus can reach a height of 10,000 ft with little effort. With severe strain he can reach the highest recorded altitude of a bird in flight, but he can only remain that high for several minutes. He can fly non-stop under his own power for a maximum of approximately 12 hours. Aerial Adaptation: Icarus's entire anatomy is naturally adapted to flying. His bones are hollow like a birds, making him weigh far less than usual for a male of his build. His body is virtually devoid of fat and possesses greater proportionate muscle mass than an ordinary human does. His eyes are specially adapted to withstand high-speed winds which would hurt the average eye. He possesses a special membrane in his respiratory system enabling him to extract oxygen from the air at high velocities or altitudes. Icarus's physical adaptations give him incredible protection against damage from falling. Enhanced Human Regeneration: He regenerates and heals hundreds of times faster than a normal human. Thanks to this superhumanly regenerative "healing factor," he has been able to completely heal from injuries which would prove fatal to most humans, even with superhuman abilities. His healing powers come from his wings, without them his powers don't work. Vocal Manipulation: possesses a set of vocal cords that produce a choral sound in multiple independent tones and ranges. The vocal ability allows for more vocal control, such as hypnosis. Known Abilities: Icarus plays the Guitar and regardless of his mutant ability, is a excellent singer as well .
