HISTORY:  Kazuki was born in Academy City. His father was a business man who traveled frequently. As such one of his business trips took him to Academy City where he met Kazuki's mother,a researcher in the city, and they ended up getting married. Kazuki's father came to live in Academy City with his mother and she took his last name of Anderson, however she insisted on giving Kazuki a Japanese name. Until he was around 8 years old Kazuki led a relatively normal life, but then his parents divorced for reasons he was too young to understand. When they divorced Kazuki's mother took custody of him and moved into another apartment in Academy City and went back to using her old last name of Tanaka. Although it's been 8 years since he lived with his father Kazuki still isn't sure what last name to use when asked, and normally only gives out his first name when people ask.

His mother entered him into the Power Curriculum Program at age 9, where he gain the ability to make wormholes. Although his mother lives in the city, Kazuki chooses to live in the student dorms like most of the other students. He attends A Certain Unnamed High School and get modest grades.

To make extra money, Kazuki decided to use his ability to work as a transporter of various things. He rents out his services to people who want to get places quickly or transport things over long distances that might require multiple trips. He gets a lot of business from the various research facilities around Academy City as they often have projects and experiments that need to be moved and aren't exactly stable and/or safe to move using conventional methods. Do to his self employment as a transporter his friends at school gave him the nickname of Taxi.    



RANK: Owner
LEVEL: 3
(ABILITY NAME): Wormhole (Bi-directional Spacial Gateways)

Kazuki is able to create wormholes that link two locations in space. Any object that passes through the wormhole will be instantly transported to the linked location. Kazuki is able to create these wormholes anywhere with a few stipulations. He can only create a wormhole at location within 3 meters of himself. In addition, any wormhole he creates can't bisect a solid object. The wormholes themselves are created in an inactive state and while in this state appear to look similar to a heat shimmer. They remain in this inactive form until they are linked with another wormhole or dispelled. When linked, they become much more clearly visible taking on the appearance of a dark shadowy circle. The limit to the distance one can travel using the wormhole is approximately 10km but he must create one at the target location prior to being able to travel there.  At his current level Kazuki can manage to keep 4 wormholes open at a time and they have a size limit of approximately 2 meters in diameter. The further away the target location for link a portal is, the longer it takes to create it. It takes approximately 1 second for every 10 meters away the target location is, so a location 3 km away would take 300 seconds/5 minutes.  

Because of the nature of his ability, Kazuki is constantly surrounded in a small field of distorted space.  He can turn the field inward towards himself allowing him to blink very short distances (no greater than 5 meters) after a short charge period of about 2-3 seconds, three seconds being at its max range. This functions as a very short range teleport.      

Do to his abilities Kazuki is not a very aggressive fighter. He favors standing back and using wormholes to redirect incoming attacks back at the person who attacked him.
   
OTHER ABILITIES: Any other talents or non supernatural abilities or equipment used by your character.
(Hand to Hand Combat)
Well, more like hand to foot combat. He prefers to fight with kicks when people get too close, often forgetting he can attack with his hands entirely. He's not the best at it but he's passable.     
(Pocket Binoculars)
Kazuki carries around a pair of binoculars to help increase his range of vision.

Re: [Esper] Tanaka Kazuki

Kazuki glanced up at the building in front of him. It was a massive grey building made of steel and glass that rose to a height of four stories. Like many buildings in Academy City, this building was a research facility. What it was researching and what that research was for, Kazuki had no idea. All he know was that this was the location of his next job. The researchers that had hired him had said it would be a simple job, just moving something from one room to another, but he assumed otherwise. No research facility went out of their way to hire his transportation services just to move something from one room to another, without some sort of stipulation.
Kazuki sighed, "no sense standing around out here" he muttered to himself as he started walking towards the large glass doors of the facility. Kazuki walked through the doors and towards the front desk. As he looked around it struck him that it look quite similar to an emergency room in a hospital. He walked up to the receptionist behind the front desk.
"Umm... Hi, I'm Kazuki,I have an appointment with..."
"Yes yes, they're expecting you, room 337 on the third floor", the receptionist said as she gestured towards the elevator.
"Well someone seems crabby", Kazuki thought to himself as he walked to the elevator.
He pressed the button for the third floor and stepped out into the hall. He walked down the hall until he came to room 337.
"Lets see what stipulations they have for me this time", Kazuki thought to himself as he knocked on the door.  
"Who is it", a voice called from the inside "I'm a very busy man".
"Um", Kazuki started to say as the door slid open. Standing there was a tall thin man with blonde hair that came to his shoulders and a lab coat that covered everything down to his knees, just leaving his brown slacks visible underneath.
"Ah yes, the transporter", the man said "come in, come in your right on time".
Kazuki followed the man into the  large room full of enormous machines who's functions were lost to him. The man in the lab coat led him over to the back left corner of the room where there was a large machine holding a sphere. This sphere had was about the size of a basketball and was white with little button and latches on it.
"This" The man in the lab coat said with gusto " is what you will be transporting". "There is a room down in the basement of this facility that we need to relocate this sphere to. Down there is a machine build to utilize this wondrous piece of technology".
"And you want me to help you take it there", Kazuki chimed in.
"Precisely", the man in the lab coat replied "the only problem is that the machines that hold the sphere also stabilize the content, should the sphere be removed for more than a few seconds, the content will begin to react violently and the entire thing will explode wiping out everything in a 100 meter radius."
"And there's the stipulation", Kazuki thought to himself.
"Alright then show me the room where we need to bring it and then I can begin my job", Kazuki said with confidence.
The man in the lab coat led Kazuki Down to the basement of the facility and to the machine that would be taking the sphere.
"All right then" Kazuki said aloud "just give me a few second". He began to concentrate on the room they had just left. because he couldn't see the room it took a few seconds but then the air in front of him began to shimmer like the horizon on a hot day.
"Finished", Kazuki exclaimed as he finished creating the wormhole. "now you should be able to transport the sphere from there back here in a few seconds".
"Truly remarkable" the man in the lab coat said as he stepped through the wormhole into the room they had just left. "Now I'll just take the sphere from here, and place it right in here, and presto! we're done."
All of a sudden the sphere began to shave violently.
"Oh dear what an over site", the man in the lab coat said with distraught "It seems I forgot to plug the machine in".
"Mr. Transporter, I may require your services once again" the man in the lab coat said calmly "If you could help me remove this sphere from this location within the next 30 seconds or so, I'm sure everyone in this facility would greatly appreciate it".
Kazuki quickly closed his existing wormhole and began to create a wormhole to the least populated area he had knew. District 17's railway storage.
"I don't mean to be a bother, but we have about 5 seconds left before that sphere explodes"
The wormhole opened
"Three seconds left"
Kazuki grabbed the sphere and hurled it through the wormhole. The sound of an explosion filled the room. They were safe.
"I'm going to have to charge you extra for this", Kazuki said sounding very annoyed.

Hi. Welcome to the forums.

Jumping straight into things, his history etc seem fine. Just a quick question though; are we referring to the term transporter in the literal context or the 'shady' context? Does he work for the 'Dark Side'? Or is his business purely legitimate? The main reason I ask is due to his equipment. Night vision goggles seem a pretty strange bit of kit for someone in a legitimate line of business, whereas if he was connected with the Dark Side it would be reasonable that he acquired them through less than legal channels.

And again I'll reiterate that not every character fits a 'hand to hand combat' skill. In this case it seems justified as his ability doesn't directly lend itself to combat in the way some do, so I'll let it slide.

His ability is interesting and I'm down with the central concept, but I feel it needs a little tweaking to be feasible.

Firstly, The portals should be more visible. Heat haze works as a signal, but I reckon it should be closer to the refraction/distortion effects exhibited by the camouflage system in the Predator movies or Metal Gear. Something that's apparent to the naked eye but not immediately obvious. Again, this is due to my personal dislike of 'invisible attacks' that can make PvP a nightmare.

Secondly, While having the portals work long distance is fine by me, I think it's prudent to limit him to opening portals within his field of vision (or at least his local vicinity). So he could open a portal in location A, travel to location B and open up the other end. If this was combined with an ability to keep multiple portals (maybe 3-5) dormant he'd be able to cycle between them. I think this would still retain most of his ability's usefulness without being too broken. In this way it would still be useful for laying traps etc without allowing him to instantly teleport to anywhere hes been before.

Thanks for the welcome,

As to your first question, he is a transporter in a literal sense of the word. People hire him to move stuff for them as a ligament enterprise. This doesn't necessarily mean he couldn't be hired by someone from the dark side, especially if he wasn't informed what it was he was moving, just that he has no actual connections to anyone in the dark side. The night-vision binoculars were just a tool to expand the range of his power, as he could only quickly make portals to locations he could see. The night vision function was just a sort of, quality of life thing for clearer vision at night.

I understand your concern for invisible attacks and I can definitely modify the appearance of the portals. A question I have about what you said though, would they still look like heat shimmers, but only while not activated and then become more visible once opened, or just always more visible.

I'm not sure I understand exactly what your suggesting in your last paragraph. What I understood from that was he would be able to make multiple portals that remained in dormant state and when he creates a new portal he could choose to have it link to an already existing portal, thus activating it. If this is what you had in mind I just had one question, would he still maintain the ability to create the portals anywhere he can see or in his general vicinity, because it not that makes the whole night vision binoculars irrelevant.

You understand correctly, yeah. I figured letting him have a few set 'exit points' would allow him to keep his ability varied and useful without being able to simply open a portal to anywhere. In the meantime he can set up the 'entry point' anywhere within his vision.

Assuming that's OK with you then I'd say he'd be a neat Level 3.

Re: the missing part of my first post:

I'm also a little reticent about the automatic shield. Not that it'll be awfully troublesome in terms of the RP itself, but that sort of application is a pretty high level (the only Espers so far shown to have such a powerful passive ability are Level 5s like Accelerator or Mikoto).

And the usage of 'blinking' from place to place does seem like a natural application of his ability, but I feel it should be tempered by some sort of warm-up period. Otherwise he's basically a souped-up teleporter in addition to his other powers. If it were something he had to anticipate in advance to activate it would be more reasonable.
