From well-to-do British rocker to the "monster" he thinks he is now. Jonothon "Jono" Starsmore has had a crazy life. His powers manifested explosively, crippling his then-girlfriend Gayle, and blowing away Jono's lower jaw and much of his chest. His parents hid his condition until he was contacted by Xavier's Institute, and he decided to go. Once there, he took the name "Chamber". Chamber is a living furnace of biokinetic energy that resembles fire that doesn't burn. He lacks a mouth and internal organs, so he can neither eat nor breathe -- neither does he have a heartbeat, even though blood still pumps through his extremities. Jono is telepathic, but only enough to let him "speak". Due to Gayle's being crippled, his parents basically throwing him away, and his need to hide from the world, he tends to lead a solitary existence. He avoids crowds for fear that he'll "explode" again, and because he can't go out without everything between his nose and his waist covered. Otherwise the fire's on full display. That fire inside him is now the only thing keeping him alive.
Emotional Issues: Putting it mildly; it's less that he has emotional "issues" and more that he has "complete anthologies". Between a lousy sense of self-esteem, being scared of his own powers and the damage they could possibly cause, having no drive to learn finer control over his powers due to the aforementioned fear of them, thinking he's a monster, and several other emotional problems, he's remarkably easy to manipulate if you know what you're doing.
Gayle Edgerton: Gayle was Jono's first serious girlfriend, the one who he happened to cripple when his powers manifested. If she were to come to him asking for help -- or someone using her image -- he's likely to drop his guard instantly...and give her whatever she asks for.
Obvious Mutation: When his powers first made themselves known, they did so explosively, blowing away his lower jaw, the front of his throat, and most of his chest. On top of that, a biokinetic furnace burns in the cavity of his chest. Chamber has to keep everything south of his nose and north of his waist wrapped up, or he has no hope of passing as a normal human.
Missing Senses: Directly resulting from the former, Jono has no mouth. Thus he cannot eat, and has no ability to smell or taste. This means more than just he can't taste the results of someone's cooking or can't smell someone's stench. It also means that he's going to be unprepared for events that have scent cues -- like the formation of a thunderstorm, since he can't smell the ozone or the rain...or a gas explosion, since he can't smell the sulphur-scent.
Contents Under Pressure: The state of Chamber's biokinetic fire is directly connected to his mental state. Put simply, Jono is an explosion waiting to happen. Or rather, he is if he doesn't work out his tension. He can channel it into positive activities, such as sports and gym. If he doesn't do this, he risks another explosion like the one his powers first manifested in. To say nothing of what happens if he's extremely surprised.
Beacon: To anybody who can sense either mutants or psionics, Jono's going to light up like a Christmas tree. There is absolutely no way he can hide this. Suppressing his mutant signature would result in his biokinetic energy weakening (which could kill him, or leave him unable to defend himself if he needs to); suppressing his psionic signature would render him unable to "speak" via his telepathy.
Off Switch: Jono's powers are psychokinetic in nature. This means that very powerful telepaths could potentially reach in and "shut him off". This would take considerable effort and would probably harm the telepath as well, but it can be done. If this were to be accomplished, it would "shut off" his fire, thus turning off the source of power that keeps him alive. This would, of course, kill him permanently.
Recharge Required: Much like a battery, Chamber's biokinetic energy has a finite limit (OOC: no blasts for 1R after an uber; 2R for an epic). He can only use a full-strength blast three or four times before he has to "recharge". This takes about an hour if he wants to wait until he's at full power, though he can recharge enough within a few moments to deliver weaker blasts. It doesn't hurt him on a physical level to deplete his energy in such a way, but until he recharges, he'll be stuck with physical offense/defense. And a human fist isn't much against a giant metal monstrosity, or someone whose skin has the density of reinforced concrete.Vulnerability: Chamber may be immune to life-draining effects, but psionic draining is another matter. Any form of powers that can affect energy, particularly biokinetic or psychokinetic energy -- including some paranormal devices/powers -- are particularly damaging to him, and run the risk of killing him if his energy is drained far enough.

OOC: Chamber's accent is probably not being played with 100% consistency. This is a mistake I'm aware is PROBABLY happening. However, please be assured that this is not something I'm doing purposely. The difficulty lies in the fact that I happen to be a born-and-raised American, and my only exposure to the British accent is British comedies.
Add to this that Chamber's accent was SUPPOSED to be played not completely accurately. He was originally designed to be, essentially, John Lennon as seen through the eyes of an American, as a mutant. So the accent is overplayed in some areas, and downplayed in others.
Additionally, I strive to maintain readability and pose flow over authenticity of the sound of his accent. While he might actually be SAYING 'Wotz yer naime?', it's much easier to type 'What's your name?' It can also be read by others much better.
- Rynn and Arokh: "Hard ter tell who's in charge wi' this pair. An' I never thought I'd see an actual dragon. Well, besides Lockheed. But 'e's tiny."

- Karian: "I don't think I've ever seen anybody stand around an' 'ave a normal conversation while he was bleedin' from 'is face. Too bad about your eye..."
- Marrik: "Thanks. Sorry if I scared yer. Still figurin' all this 'mutant' stuff out yet."
- Toph: "..." Blink. "...'Fly boy'?"
- Rainbow Dash: "First time I've ever seen a flyin' horse really. But I think by now the Multiverse's got me where I jus' shrug an' go 'whatever'. Glad yer wasn't hurt though."
- The Rookery: "When I met Rynn and Arokh I said I never thought I'd see an actual dragon. I take it back. This place is full of dragons 'a ev'ry description. Now I don't think I'll ever see a dragon I 'aven't seen 'ere."Dropped
