charles 'charlie' quinn
those other girls are just post-mix lemonade
straight up and straight out, this lad suffers from gender identity disorder. it controls portions of his life but he works through it. he’s not particularly adverse to physical contact, but unless the reciprocator is his partner he would rather he initiate it and it be over as quickly as possible. he struggles with severe BDD (body dysmorphic disorder) and often resorts to landing himself in situations where his well being and health are jeopardised, and only after these incidents does his mind clear enough for him to function properly amongst other people.
masochism is the next bit of juicy marrow buried in this boy’s bones. he’s a complete and utter sucker for any harm inflicted on his person. without being able to help himself, occurences where charlie might become sexually aroused from the pleasure he receives happen more often than not. due to this being a rather embarrassing reaction in his opinion, he’d rather his masochistic tendencies be kept a secret.
charlie isn’t the sort of person to easily place his trust in other people, and he doesn’t expect others to trust him either. he’s sickened by needy people, especially the kind of people who invest themselves completely into the lives of others. he doesn’t believe in love because of the way he was brought up and is afraid of telling people as such.
another large aspect of charlie’s personality is his attention deficiency. he’s easily bored by people and only keeps people around if they can keep him entertained. this doesn’t make him the most approachable person in the world and generally leads to conflicts of either the verbal or physical sort. both of which, charlie is more than familiar with.
being genderfluid, charlie is not particularly bothered by the pronouns people address him with. his personal style and mannerisms don't tend to push in one certain direction or the other, but he generally refers to himself with male pronouns.

charlie was a normal baby, a week or so premature but an average baby nonetheless. his parents adored him, doing the normal parent thing. a father who had already planned out most of his life; he would grow up and become a military man, or a member of parliament, either way he would be a man women would fall madly in love with and men would envy and never match up to. his mother was a protective woman, already clouded with thoughts of her son becoming a tall, handsome young man, just like his brother. he would have a sensible wife and give her a grandchild, just like she expected from her oldest son as well.
high expectations from both his parents for a baby, and they only seemed to get worse as he grew up. he never paid much mind to it as a young child when rhode, his big brother, told him to run away or close his eyes and cover his ears when he heard the shouting. he couldn't understand why his handsome, quiet father, and his beautiful, charming mother couldn't seem to stop fighting. it wasn't until he was about five years old that his parents really clued in to the strange ‘habits’ he had collected and charlie clued into the fact that he was the reason his parents had stopped getting along.
in kindergarten he had started to hang around the young girls more, and if they refused to be around him, with cruelty that some children have, he'd still rather play alone than with the boys. he picked up polly pocket figures instead of toy trucks, picked flowers when the boys stomped around in the mud. he wondered why everything his brother wanted was in pretty blues and bright reds, while everything he wanted was in pastels and covered in glitter. when the questions began being asked, his mother refused to answer and slapped him for being 'an annoying, spoiled little brat.'
his choices in clothing at even such a young age had changed to more feminine styles, he was very adamant about the state of his dress; socks pulled tight to the knees, above if possible - never stained, collar folded neatly over his sweater and covered during meals, sleeves always to be rolled in a way that would not wrinkle the fabric of his shirt. it was the only thing he felt he had real control over.
charles, charlie's father, chose to ignore the problem and his son at the same time. he refused to believe that he even had a son let alone what was going on in charlie's life. he only had one son, rhode, charlie didn't exist. even at public events he would avoid any conversations that headed in the direction of a topic about charlie. coming to points where he would even walk away from the people he was talking with. he absolutely refused.
madeline, charlie's mother, became angry. she watched as charlie picked up barbie dolls and danced around the house, a sickening distaste for her son slowly forming. it wasn't always this way, at the start she had gently tried to sway his mind set back to a more masculine and boyish ideals but he never seemed to grasp on. as time went on, his feminine actions and mannerisms became more frequent, and madeline decided to get him seen my a child psychologist.
at age seven, charlie was diagnosed with gender identity disorder. the cause? there were lots of explanations for it that might relate to him and his lifestyle. it was apparent though that it was caused by low self esteem, over protective and almost obsessive behaviour from one parent when another might be distant, and more or less significant peer rejection. it was after being 'accused' by the child psychologist for what her child had become, as madeline had put it, that the real abuse had started.
whenever charlie tried to touch a doll he would get pinched to the point of welts. when he danced around the house or skipped about, a slap across the face. madeline soon became paranoid about what thoughts could be running around his mind and became over emotional, hardly ever slept, and hit him whenever she pleased. she had charlie transferred to an all-boys school so he couldn't be around other girls. soon though it became apparent that no matter what she tried, her child was going to be like 'that'.
the topic of charlie’s powers never came up while charlie was in the room, rhode helped him work on them so he could walk around the house invisibly without becoming a target, but the waves of fear that effected him when his mother began tormenting him had a whole other effect. if she came at him in silence to scare him, lifted her hand and made him flinch, even looked at him as though her gaze were lit cigarettes burning holes into him, his skin would ripple and face in places, revealing his insides to her and sickening her even more. she found him disgusting, and the abuse would only get worse if he showed his fear in that way.
POWER: transparency - he can become partially or completely transparent.
