Power Description
  • Veritokinesis - As this power is almost always 'on' to some degree, his eyes don't shift color unless he's focused on a particularly slippery falsehood. He can pick up on obvious lies with ease these days, to some degree almost believing he doesn't even really need the power to do it anymore. In truth, though, a particularly skillful liar or near-truths always take a little bit of honing in on. Compelling others to honesty takes the most focus, and any instance of this facet nearly always requires him to step away and recuperate for a moment afterward. The willfulness of the individual being compelled affects how much of a detriment this is to his energy levels.
  • Electrokinesis - Used mostly as a defense if things ever get hairy for a man who otherwise can't really fight, Layton can mostly use this power to shock others in close proximity. Though there is a chance of doing greater damage, he is wary of tapping into it too much as while he isn't electrocuted by his own ability, it does cause him discomfort and prolonged use will black him out. He is, however, very capable of charging small devices without another power source without much fuss. This ability always triggers an eye color shift.

Animal Description

Appearance

  • Questionable hairline, slightly bug-eyed, obviously not athletic, he's never particularly had looks going for him, but he doesn't seem to care
  • Wears suits almost exclusively because he's almost exclusively "at work" in some capacity, but does tone it down at home
  • Near-sighted, nearly always in glasses but occasionally moves to contacts
  • Appearances and thus hygiene are important
  • Doesn't seem to know what to do with his hair, but makes it work?
  • Rather average in height and build, comes across as rather harmless

Personality

  • A bit of a snake in the grass, an excellent liar after years of knowing when others are lying, willing to manipulate and scheme and portray himself as something different than what he actually is
  • Short tempered and occasionally petty, but doesn't have the physical presence to lash out directly without playing his hand too openly
  • Civilized and polite to the faces of others, maybe even friendly, though does have a tendency to stare
  • Hates failure and being outsmarted, as well as things outside of his control
  • Doesn't need to be in charge but will always align with those who will be beneficial to him as an individual as well as his intentions
  • Loyalty is questionable but not where his wife is concerned, his own ambitions often set aside in favor of hers
  • Enjoys information and secrets and hoards details and in tandem can be very chatty without actually saying much of substance at all
  • Also likes being underestimated until it's too late
  • Always looking to improve himself and learn and know more, and sometimes that means doing things he wouldn't necessarily do because he wants to

History

  • Got born to rather conservative Christian family, had older brother, Paul
  • Looked up to Paul for their childhood, wanting to be a lot like him. Followed his footsteps into adult life first out of desire to be the same and then out of actual interest when the concept of learning and growing for his own sake really took him
  • Manifested the ability to tell when people were lying during early college years, but it didn't really occur to him that it was anything more than being intuitive for a long time
  • Majored in History and Mastered in Philosophy - went to law school where he met Olivia
  • Paul--then a defense attorney with a good name for himself--killed rather mysteriously in Appalachian mountains by unknown animal
  • Married Olivia and joined her in Colorado and joined local prosecuting office under the District Attorney
  • Realized his second power in his mid-thirties when he incidentally used it to fend off a frustrated defendant after a case in a situation that might have otherwise ended badly for him
  • Has supported Olivia in all her campaigns and efforts and has been easily her most avid loyalist
  • News breaking about vampires and then shifters started to turn his head towards distrust, especially when he began to suspect things about his brother's death
  • Has been pushing to treat errant supernatural behavior as criminal ever since behind closed doors, but is more passive publicly other than vocally wanting to help keep the people of mountainside safe

Other

Face Claim: Michael Emerson

  • Took his wife's surname when they married since she was already involved in politics
  • Goes almost exclusively by "Layton" which is his family name, only really gets called Jacob by his wife
  • Speaks several languages including Spanish, Italian, and German most fluently. Milder understanding of Mandarin, Japanese, and French.
