-]Biography[-
  • Were there particular events that impacted their life?
Not really.  Cyril read a lot, and not fairytales and such, but phylosophical books, books about order and silent wars.  He and his sister came to the drastic conclusion that the world was a very unsafe place when 9-11 happened and back home were able to look at things in a much more fundamental way than external extremists.  Terrorism wasn't such a hot topic in Quebec, but lycanthropy and vampires trying to take over Montreal was.  The insight into theses monsters living along side their friends and families was enough to spur action.

  • How did they become infected/turned/aware of their powers?
Cyril and Simone could always speak to each other.  They didn't tell others, it wasn't a dirty secret so much as a coveted one.  To this day their parents and siblings don't know that they can communicate telepathically, although Julie might suspect something strange.  When Cyril turned 14 he started growing and getting facial hair, and he was able to hear other people's thoughts.  He told Simone about it immediately, and they started looking into ways for him to get this underwraps - summer camps were a great excuse, and later on he would take 'jobs' to get away for help.

  • How did they grow stronger and gain control of their powers?
Cyril was a quick study.  He had a lot of trouble with filtering the thoughts out though.  Living with 6 other people as a teenager made for limited quiet time, and when everyone thought it was -never- quiet.  He woke up with their thoughts in his dreams, whispers in his ears.. he nearly lost it had it not been for the constant hum in his head from Simone.  She sang little tunes in his head to drown out the others.  When he started training with help in the summer time, he wanted too much and it didn't allow him naturally develop his abilities.  He dreaded school without being able to close out people's thoughts and after close to four months he was finally able to put up that barrier between him and the minds of the world. 

  • Did they do anything in particular with their powers?

talked to people, persuaded them to get into places he shouldn't go, persuaded them to help him when they didn't want to

  • How did they discover their special or unusual powers?

no other powers
