So, Will. Telekinesis is an uncommon ability in the Network, it requires not only a crapload of practice but also innate ability. But Mr. Tagaloa is not just telekinetically inclined, he is what is (very unfortunately) called a whill, otherwise known as a 'true' telekinetic. Where virtually all 'kinetics are more or less moving things in a physical, energy-taxing sense (lifting, pushing, pulling), a whill can actually release objects from gravitational forces, and then has regular kinetic abilities on top of that.

And that makes a world of difference. No telekinetic could begin to lift, say, a building, it would require waaay too much energy, cannot be done. But Will can just pop it into zero-g, and in that suspended, relatively frictionless state, push it around 'kinetically like a balloon with little effort. Tremendous power.  

Just like Charles and all other 'kinetics, Will cannot lift his own physical body or anything that would in turn lift him (ie, a car he is sitting inside), because he cannot be both the cause and the effect of the force at the same time. And there are very much limits on the range of space he can render weightless. Otherwise, his limitations are mostly moral. He is a very nice guy and has rarely and reluctantly used his abilities in aggressive ways.  

Also, and I'll be brief, there are two 'native' groups living on the large island that is Aagiea Ki. There are the 'ethnic Aagieans' descended from the indigenous population like Natia and Will, and there are the 'Aagiean aristocracy', like Cornelius and Penny, whose affluent ancestors migrated from Brindlington four hundred years ago or so and (re?)colonized the island. Same story as always and always plays out: the powerful newcomers used and abused the ethnic Aagiean population until they are what they are today- shoved into corners, struggling with poverty and all the vices that come with it.

They may be just coming into a rebirth, however, with some innovative individuals going out into the Network and bringing home inspiration, plans, and sometimes even the money to carry them out. Having a whill born into the group was a welcome shocker, and Will has used his automatic fame to call attention to the plight of ethnic Aagieans, and, perhaps more importantly, to knock some heads together among his brethren and tell them they can change things. Will is something of a hero at home, but you can imagine the aristocracy don't like him much. He and Cornelius have only met briefly, but if they had an actual encounter they'd be passive-aggressive with each other as hell.

I am digging James A LOT. Also Will seems like he'd just be the biggest sweetheart.

I'm faving this for the "Mimes of Moria" bit. Priceless. Just priceless!

Your mimes sort of killed me, I think. Thanks a lot.

It's really interesting to read your descriptions about characters and such, though. This project - this entire world of yours... is it just something you're tinkering with, or are you making/planning/have made big things from this? You really have me curious, as everything of yours seem so well thought out - and/or well described.

It's so stupid, I crack up every time I see it myself. XD

Well, thank you! Yes, my stories are just a thing I tinker with. For tens years, tinkering. Wish I'd go somewhere with it, sometimes, but usually I'm content to just use endless storytelling as personal amusement and art practice. :) Super happy whenever someone else enjoys them as well, so thank you!
