Power Description
Empath: He can feel the emotions of others. To him, they resemble a color and taste. Depending on the power's readings, it may rarely affect how Sheridan reacts.
Side Effects: While more positive emotions can help to boost his own demeanor, strong negative emotions take their toll, giving him migraines and stressing him to the point of near illness. Generally, he tries to subdue his power if it starts getting to that point. The longer he holds it back, the more sensory information is built up until the mental dam inevitably breaks. Reactions to this can stem from confusion and light sensitivity (short period of time) to near panic attack (maximum period of time) due to sensory overload. The longest he's been able to hold back has been 12 hours currently. Past that point, he experiences sensory overload.

Animal Description

Appearance

  • Shaggy dark hair usually kept at shoulder length.
  • A sprawling, sketchy chest tattoo designed by his childhood friend.

  • Usually seen with a ballcap and dark sunglasses during the summer and jackets/hoodies in the winter.

Personality

Typically a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, Sheridan tries to make a friend out of anyone and everyone, or at least tries to put them in a good mood. He tries to play up the "cool guy" persona, but more often than not ends up looking like an idiot. He's a man of simple pleasures, enjoying drinking, bright lights, loud music, chatting ears off, and any kind of performance art. Despite giving off the impression that he is a hedonistic layabout without a care, he can be quite the hard worker when the situation calls for it. He is the kind of guy who will either end up with new friends or a black eye by the end of the night, but he is rarely seen without his signature grin.

History

Sheridan Howe is a college drop out with big dreams of going to the big city, he is the youngest of seven with virtually no support from his family. He was raised just outside of Mountainside, about twenty minutes east of Ravenswood. Growing up as the last thing on his family's mind, he was always getting into trouble, either by annoying his older siblings, being the test subject for his older siblings' shenanigans, or finding his own adventures to get tangled up with.

He had always been a talkative little squirt, and he vividly remembers to this day his older brother putting him in a headlock and telling him to shut up about him being "spicy," and his mother prying them apart only for her to scold Sheridan further while he cried. Everyone in the Howe family simply suspected that Sheridan was just too probing and perceptive for his own good. No one would have though that this was some unexplainable, uncanny ability to read the very emotions his family was feeling. Eventually, after enough pummelings and cold shoulders, Sheridan summed it up as him having some weird mental thing and he never talked about it with his family again, or anyone for that matter. As such, his Empath powers became just an every day secret.

Despite this, he always had his best friend: Gwenn Monroe. The two had been neighbors, and hit it off with playing pretend, watching cartoons, and drawing silly pictures on their arms. Hers was a happiness unlike anything Sheridan had experienced with his own family before, and he found it a joy to be around. Though he still clung to his trouble-making side even as he got older, Gwenn would often be there to help him out when she could. As they got older, Gwenn's happiness was replaced with bitter self doubt and loathing. She was bullied for not being pretty enough, her parents scoffed at her hobbies, and her interests were just a little too eclectic for the cool kids' tastes. Didn't help that she as always only hanging out with that "weird, loud, idiot Howe kid." Sheridan was always by her side, though, telling her that her parents were wrong, her art was fantastic, and Becky Hudson's nose looked like a parrot's beak anyway. That always made Gwenn laugh.

High school came and went, and the pair went off to college, with Gwenn finally giving in to her parents' wishes and going into Law school and Sheridan pulling out loans in order to follow her. Of course he declared Theater as his major. Though college was rough for the both of them (with Sheridan slacking in his classes and Gwenn struggling with her own internal battles), they neared graduation.

Christmas break of their Junior year, Gwenn's car slid off the road, likely to avoid hitting a deer, the police had said. Gwenn died of her injuries. Devastated, Sheridan dropped out of college and disappeared for a month or so, not seeing or talking to anyone and giving his family quite the scare. When he returned, he acted as if everything was fine and nothing had changed. He kept himself busy and away from probing questions by filling his schedule with odd jobs to start paying off his mountain of loans and moved in with his brothers.

This worked for some time, but eventually, Sheridan could take no more of his family. After many fights revolving around him wasting his life, living the past, being hung up on unimportant things, he packed up his things and drove west. He was ready to show them he could make it on his own. Except his shitty hand-me-down car broke down in the middle of Cordova, only about forty five minutes away from home. Needless to say, he took it as a sign that this was as far as he needed to go, and decided to get himself an apartment here in Mountainside.
