The Somnionaut, meaning "Sailor of Dreams," is a character that has been in endless development since 2009. He is, as the name suggests, fashioned from over 100 documented dreams, blended together to constitute a unique individual. On the visually creative side, the avatar was prepared in Second Life (a social video game), using its resources of marketplace and in-game tools to craft the appearance (shape, skin, eyes, hair, and clothing), as well as edited in Adobe Photoshop to give it that comic book appeal. The template was based on Taylor Lautner, best known for portraying Jacob Black in the Twilight movies.
I've chosen to share this character for the sake of comments, criticisms, and to have a digital copy on the Interwebs. But, keep in mind, everything below may sound weird -- and yes, there is a lot of data; fair warning.

Personality: Alayren is an impetuous person who needs good brakes; combining hotheadedness with mercurial tendencies create a very smart dynamite. His pep and seductiveness have a sort of generous pussycat congeniality to top it off, though it's pretty delectable to behold and awfully difficult to hang on to. He never stops darting from pillar to post, philosophy to news flash, project to love affair, and is already injected with a large dose of blast-off fuel. To add to his instability, along lopes whose basic idea of himself is extraordinary, ought to be chosen kind of the jungle right now if not sooner. Quick wit, glibness, perspicacity, flexibility, and indecisive, fervor, bravery, magnetism, swagger, and itinerant, adds together with all that mutability to devise a benevolent speed-demon. His desire to be considered both winning and wonderful can drive him to wish to perform greater deeds.

Prelude: (Brief Story Form) The lawn is instantly cut as the bushes have been trimmed. The empty vases on the wooden porch are now flowing with a milky substance, and the garden has bloomed with roses. Colors of the house richen, the once dull windows now crisp and reflecting the glare of the sun. The picket fence straightens, no longer pealing, and the cedar tree flourishes with leaves. There is new vitality to the land. An old man suddenly appears below the exquisite timber, with two infants warmly wrapped in blankets and asleep inside a whisker basket at his feet. "Today is a good day," he says, his voice rough and raspy. He grins, speaking with no apparent company listening, "I come baring gifts." The basket is turned to face the home, "Twins, yet not of blood. They come from another world, possessing unimaginable power never before seen and meant to serve a greater purpose." He kneels down, peering aimlessly around. "Do not neglect them. When they reach the age of independence, set them free." The unnamed guest tapped his forehead, then reaches behind him, retrieving a large, tan envelop. He hands it over to the now materialized couple, Draydan and Evalina O'Connell. "Forged credentials, for you and your new children."
Employments: Alayren has held various jobs, simply because he feels he's too poor to survive without action and ultimate adventure. Some roles include such positions as a Superhero in Egypt, Head Director of a Teen Rehab Center, a Mercenary-for-Hire, Guardian of a city that makes the greatest donuts on Earth, and spent two tours as a Soldier in the United States Marine Corps.
Updates: As of May 25th, 2014, Alayren was informed that he has a part Human, Thief (race), and Vampire daughter named Katelynn with his former spouse Satori; both reside in London, England. As of September 25th, 2014, Alayren owns a Craft & Sport store catering to custom-made items (unique Pool cues, paragliding wings, art supplies, and fishing gear), somewhere in the damp mountainside of a remote Asian town. As of November 2nd, 2014, a wish was granted that transported Alayren to the 60's in order for him to learn, train, and eventually spar in Jeet Kun Do with and against the great Bruce Lee. As of November 21st, 2014, Alayren adopted an orphan teen girl by the name of Meaghan after having sworn to protect her - from who or what is currently unknown.

This unique blend is distinguished by its comprehensive hand and footwork, generally accentuating closed-fist impacts that include attacking and defending in single movements, utilizing weight bearing techniques; furthermore, traditional grappling, kicking, kneeing, and elbowing to vital areas (top of the head, neck, armpits, biceps, wrists, abdominal section, knees and ankles, and the spine) were applied in lethal and non-lethal methods in order to abstain or encourage death of the opponent.

I've already typed so much, so I am refraining from seeking out the Dates of the dreams for each ability; these are not all, but a good portion of them.
Thaumaturge: The inmost devotion to the integral audacity of surreal imagination. Alayren manipulates (generates and controls) a unique form of energy called Taikogen (Japanese for "Spring Drum"). This energy acts as both a mental gateway into Dreamland to which all sentient beings reach through the suspension of consciousness, and a perpetual source of power that grants Alayren the ability to conjure metaphysical "gifts" bestowed upon him (exclusively based on those I systematically dreamed of). Despite the unknown relation between the my dreams and Alayren remaining inconsistent, Taikogen brings these talents into the real world as though they were "reserved" within his body (theoretically held dormant until aptly needed). The following is a list of attributes he has attained and fully developed. : Taikogen cannot be used for any purpose except for the power and abilities presented below, nor can Taikogen integrate powers witnessed from other characters or randomly flourish powers not clearly identified in my dreams. Abilities are added when they can be accurately detailed and explained, and do share subtle hints at their definitive weaknesses and/or limitations. Enhancements are voided.
→ Perfect Accuracy: Alayren is an unparalleled marksman, bordering the uncanny. Targets are locked-on by an integration of mental aiming, similar to how video games interpret a technical syncing between a shooter and an enemy. Once the target is down (either killed or incapacitated), the aiming is released and/or sent to the next target. Precise impacts are based on the proximity of the target and the practicality of the weapon being used.
→ Regenerative Factor: He has healed a near-fatal shoulder wound under ten hours. As the most potent of his powers, recuperation starts when external sources attack his person. Injuries, such as those caused by conventional weapons and objects, improve the reaction and the acceleration of repairing physical or mental trauma; an efficient immune system protects him from poisons, fatigues, toxins, drugs, and diseases.
→ Stealth (Camouflage): Alayren can obscure light around him, masking his presence. He naturally generates a unique form of energy that is harnessed from hyperspace, to which he can subconsciously activate to curvate lamination and radiance around him, rendering him virtually invisible to the naked eye. This spreads to technological devices, too, such as video cameras, radios, and computer detection. But, it is also not without flaw as his concentration fuels its use.
→ Cryptic Descrying: He is able to understand, speak, and write any language. A receptive translation of languages enable Alayren to coherently interpret every verbal or written code (human, animal, extraterrestrial, or otherwise) into his native tongue, whereas he induces subliminal intuition to receive messages of what is being communicated. This innate psychic comprehension is reciprocal, allowing subjects in question to completely acknowledge his speech.
→ Long-Distant Jumping: He is permitted to reach heights of at least 100 feet. An advantage to Ninjutsu is its practice of super-leaps and hassle-free landings; tightly-woven leg muscles contribute to Alayren's horizontal (as high as 100 feet) and vertical (as far as 75 feet) bounds. He can successfully pursue the double-jump, prompting his own inertia to launch a vortex around himself that substitutes a solid surface to propel himself further (an extra 15 feet).
→ Body Control: Alayren may command others through a psionic number system. The number which appears on a target's forehead represents how much control Alayren has over them, and only extends to the body (not the mind, leaving thought processing untouched). The smaller the number, the more control he has; 1 equals 80%, 2 equals 60%, 3 equals 40%, and 4 equals 20% (the lower the percentage, the easier the target is able to break the bond).
→ Limited Time Travel: Alayren can arrive or depart between a 15 year time frame. The placement he's given on arrival depends on the year he travels to and is automatic to the conditions he is transported under; however, he is alleviated from any harmful affects upon destination nor is he confined to a specific interval. Changes to the past do not correlate to future events, a safeguard in case something unwarranted happens (death is negated permanently).
→ Shotgun Strength: Pump-action in his right arm increases the force of his punches. The same unique, raw energy that formulates his Stealth capabilities is manifested to create sound/sonic-based seismic bursts (followed by a jackhammer-type effect, innervating the muscle tissue and bone structure) that adversely augments his cellular compounds, enhancing the physiology of his right arm to thirty-times that of a normal human. The result optimizes his material strength so he can routinely engage stronger opponents for brief periods of time.
→ Remote Alteration: He receives visuals on his left forearm that change an area's scenery. When special chemicals react (the same manner as taking a photograph), they depict theoretical images of living artwork, opposing what the environment truly portrays. For example; a dark, snow-capped town would be viewed as bright and peaceful. They are written into his genome, providing temporary recall when necessary. No actual conversion takes order, making the power somewhat useless.
→ Danger Intuition: Alayren can receive a mental picture of a target. This is passive in that it is always active. It extends to any individual (and object) before they enter his line of sight. This is ample in being able to recognize someone or something, giving Alayren the opportunity to react or be completely aware. Because the image is motionless (similar to a photograph), he only knows where the instance takes place.
→ Heat Blasts: Alayren produces flattened metal rings that project extremely hot energy. He instantaneously fashions metallic halos above a target's head, interplanetary portals within its axis that branch between his standing location and the surface of the Sun. Once unlocked, a portal delivers a beam of hot, dense gas in plasmic state, engulfing and reducing the target to a skeleton (an average temperature of seven hundred degrees fahrenheit, a constant rate per second).
→ Photokinetic Flashes: Alayren engenders the presence and absence of light. As a tertiary answer to the raw energy that surges throughout his being, Alayren periodically (and impassively) soaks up photonic particles from the atmosphere and then eventually stimulates these particles by bestowing his unique energy upon them. It is then within his scope to release a blindingly white luminescence or a thick, atramentous void (each at a spherical radius of forty yards) about his person, or as focused, cogent laser beams from his hands.
→ Vehicular Amalgamation: Alayren boosts the performance of motorized vehicles. An idiosyncratic, symbiotic bond is committed between Ren and the machine he is controlling, enabling a transference of raw energy to imbue and enhance the operational functions of that module. Once then, speed (movement and reaction) and toughness (durability and endurance) are increased exponentially above average compatibility.
→ Mythical Soul Sword: Alayren conjures a bladed weapon from deepest within. A one-of-a-kind tool patented by years of conscious turmoil, Alayren is able to call upon a long, teardrop-shaped sword (with a red, green, and blue sapphire encrested at its middle) whose durability and sharpness is truly dependent on his emotional and physical status. It cannot be utilized or destroyed by an outside source (i.e. a power or individual).
→ God Blast: Alayren gathers spiritual energy from living organisms to generate a powerful burst. Depending on the type of spiritual energy he absorbs and redirects, each individual (Human, Meta-Human, Mutant, Extraterrestrial, Celestial Entity) invokes separate levels of power, which not only dictates how immense the God Blast is, but how effective it becomes against the target and the target only (H: 5-10%, MH & M: 15-30%, E: 40%, C: 60%).
→ Optical Misdirection: Alayren warps the depth perception of a target. He has demonstrated the ability to cast a field of energy (radius of 10 feet) that warns off an opponent's sight and focus, allowing him to appear where enemies are unable to see him and therefore inflict close-quarter damage before it's realized. The harder the person tries to observe him, the harder the field pushes their vision away.
→ Psychic Guidelines: Colorful prongs steer Alayren toward definitive points. Luminescent, plasmic energy (solid light) projected on an undiscernable frequency (unseen by all others) in the shape of 'arrows' (of various sizes), help direct Alayren to specific locations (extends to distinctive areas of interest, localized objects, or peculiar individuals). These 'arrows' appear on any surface, and can even stretch down from the sky, as well as twist and turn at any angle, no matter how complex the path (so long as Alayren moves along its trajectory).
→ Adaptable Clay Phase: Alayren transmutates himself into a moldable substance. Briefly extemporized, every cell in his body alters to a malleable agent, accomplishing assorted shapes and sizes with varying degrees of density, toughness, and viscosity; doing so prevents attacks of cerebral and organic domination, annihilating indiscriminate effects of most basic elements. Alayren can partially and fully adjust sections of his argil form into numerous or single-purpose appliances: blades, maces, enveloping globs, nets, and even characteristics of a target: animals, humans, etc.
→ Bio-Fission (Duplication): He exports an exact clone of himself. One of Alayren's strangest but imperatively fruitful techniques, aptly spawning a copy of himself and chartering a colocation, telepathic and empathic rapport with his intended replication. Initially, Alayren vanishes entirely when his ectype is animated, simultaneously reappearing when it's erased. Conjointly, they can resort to a teleportational clash with enemies, seemingly switching back and forth.
→ Nocturnal Vision: Alayren can see in pitch-black. He encounters his worldly domain with a fully-lit but dark, murky-green hue, while observing existing targets in a much brighter, lime-green tint. This ability is non-passive, willfully activating at his instruction; colloquially stated as objects significantly changed by ionized particulate matter mapped to a variably intense wave-packet.
→ Virtual Path Foresight: He procures a target's route. Coupled only with Nocturnal Vision, Alayren can mentally detect which direction(s) his opponent(s) takes before they initiate movement. This is dictated by yellow, holographic triangles that appear around them, syncing with the opponent's thought, bearing their most achievable course and giving Alayren the best possible chance of reaction.
→ Crystallized Gel Burst: What bounces off him, sticks to them. By rubbing his hands together and fiercely arching his chest forward, Alayren generates a dark blue-colored glob of an unknown, adhesive substance outside his belly, that, when projected at an amazing speed, traps his target(s) within a spiderweb of unbreakable glass.
→ Molecular Fusion: Molding to two allies gives him extra power. Only through a special dance technique can Alayren genetically combine his physical and mental body with two others in order to access a transformed state; a hairless demonic creature, consisting of byzantium-shaded skin, glowing white eyes, and vestigial tail. The newly spawned being can manipulate fiery plasma as protective force-fields and concussive heat blasts.
→ Legendary Gauntlets: In retrospect, these enchanted artifacts had lay dormant since his conceiving. But due to recent necessity, each can be conjured at any given moment by mental command. The left is composed of and has the appearance of a dark-gray, rocky element, and is shaped like a snake with a minor bend in the middle; it provides earth-based manipulation for generating snake-like tendrils made of mud, dirt, rock, and/or sand. The right is comprised of multiple, two-inch sized, rectangular faces of red ruby-quartz; with it, Alayren can psionically control and deploy a red cloak as if it seized a mind of its own - the cloak can be transmutated into a free-floating vapor under his ultimate charge.
→ Vacuum Adaptation: Alayren can acclimate to and withstand the void of space unaided of any breathing apparatus, customarily resisting surrounding atmospheres of intense heat and cold, poisonous chemical elements, cosmic radiation (administering his healing factor), strange gravitational attraction (repulsing even black holes), and lack of oxygen (forging exigent independence).
→ Fowl Explosion: Alayren can rupture into a throng of crow-hawk birds, typically from the waist up, de-materializing any clothing, weapons, and even living beings he is in physical contact with which conduces to relocation (traveling at great speed, a standard of 200mph with his legs flapping in his wake for unintentional hilarity). Then, he meticulously reconstructs (the swarm is recalled), restoring his original human guise without so much as strain or discomfort to the luggage.
Weakness(es): A man of marvels can be weak, inspiring one's ingenuity. Alayren is not immortal or invincible, and his powers can backfire. Blocking of or snipping the source of his power, Taikogen, adequately cancels their application. Employing two or more abilities leaven hesitance and unsteady execution by 25%. He does not instantly heal, he instantly starts to heal (begins to work, and takes time to complete). He can be beheaded (needs the brain and heart in-conjunction to heal), drowned (suffocation to lack of oxygen), winded (loss of oxygen), injected with anesthetics (70cc nitrous = knocked out for 12 hours), buckled by nerve strikes and pressure points, and drained of blood (total depletion puts him out of commission for a day). He ages at normal Human speed in the real (RP) world, but physically ages faster in Dreamland, and can still die from old age. He is not immune to magical or biological manipulation (having his body tampered with, for example: a spell cast on him to deteriorate, telekinetically dispersing his molecules, telepathically influenced to do something, etc.), or having his abilities copied and/or countered and reversed. The soul sword is unable to puncture such established (canon) materials as Adamantium, Vibranium, Prometheum, and Uru (or visa versa); solely fracturing Alayren's sacred essence substantially impairs him.
