The Character
DW account: [personal profile] bluesuit_handy
Name: Andrew Noble (meta-crisis!Doctor)
Alias: the Doctor, Handy (the latter is not a name he uses or wants used; fandom-wise he's also known as the meta-crisis!Doctor, Ten.2, etc). He'd argue that the Doctor's many aliases also belong to him, such as the Evergreen Man and the Oncoming Storm.
Age/Birthdate: "Born" in 2009; around two actual years old due to time travel. Has well over 900 years' worth of memories.
Species: Human-Time Lord biological meta-crisis
Canon: Doctor Who (TV canon)
Canon point: About two years after the events of Journey's End
Played By: David Tennant

Abilities:
At the time of his creation, Andrew inherited the Doctor's dizzying intellect and vast wealth of knowledge. He seems to know at least a little bit about everything, and possesses the kind of skill with technology that can only be acquired through several lifetimes of experience. He's a fast talker and a fast runner, and his ability to get himself out of nearly any scrape neatly balance his penchant for getting himself into trouble. Unlike the Doctor, he lacks most of a Time Lord's usual physiological and psychological advantages; while he has a somewhat heightened temporal awareness as compared to a human, compared to a Time Lord's temporal and spacial senses he might as well be deaf and blind. He lacks the ability to initiate telepathic connections, though his defenses are more formidable than those of a human should anyone attempt to invade his mind.

The Rift gave Andrew the power of Meta Division. He can split himself into multiple, identical copies of himself, each of which possesses an independent but identical consciousness. However, no matter how many parts he splits into, Andrew cannot spontaneously increase his own mass. As a result, his overall mass is split among however many copies are currently extent; the more copies he makes of himself, the smaller each will be. Furthermore, the smaller the Andrew, the more energy he requires to stabilize his form. As such, increasing amounts of Andrew's mass are converted to energy the more pieces he splits into. The energy remains in an invisible cloud around each mini-Andrew, ready to be converted back to mass when he re-joins. Thanks to the energy field, a smaller Andrew is stronger and more resilient relative to his size than a larger one. He can still be injured, but being knocked over by a giant hand, for instance, will not break his bones. He can also lift more weight and jump higher when he's small (again, relative to his size).

The parts are not always of equal size, and Andrew can choose how many to make and how much mass to give to each. He can, for instance, split into one nearly full-sized Andrew and one tiny one, or he can choose to split into three hobbit-sized Andrews, or a gaggle of small Andrews of varying sizes. Each of the smaller Andrews is also capable of splitting further or merging with other mini-Andrews. There is a limit to how small he can make his component selves, however: below about about four inches tall, the duplicates are unstable, and automatically re-merge before they can fully split. Due to the energy exchange, this works out to one twelfth of his full size.

The split Andrews can (and will generally want to) merge back together with ease. The process is painless, and the re-merged Andrew will have the memories gained by all his constituent parts while they acted independently. If he remains split apart long enough, individual experiences can cause his different parts to become less identical in thought processes and personalities, but they remain at core the same person.

Check it out, a height chart! )


Appearance:
Like the incarnation of the Doctor from whom he was made, Andrew is tall, gangly, and thin as a rail. He appears to be somewhere in his thirties, and sports freckles on pale skin, brown eyes, and shaggy brown hair he rarely bothers to get cut. He wears sideburns that tend to be at least a little more neatly trimmed than the rest of his hair, and can frequently be seen going about with a bit of stubble. He's extremely expressive both in terms of body language and facial animation, to the point where he can appear manic, and his voice tends to get squeaky when he's very excited or upset. Poor blood circulation and a lack of natural insulation has made him hate the cold, and he can almost always be found dressed in layers, simply adding more shirts and jumpers as the temperature drops.


Personality:
Andrew has long struggled with the thorny problem of identity; he often fears that he amounts to little more than an imperfect duplicate of another being, rather than meriting consideration on his own terms. His personality is an amalgam of those of the tenth Doctor and his companion, Donna, from whom he was jointly created, and he has inherited all the insecurities and (to his mind) worst aspects of both. From the Doctor, he got the tendency to constantly apologize for things that are not at all his fault while failing to realize he ought to be sorry for the things that are, as well as more than a little doubt about his own capabilities as a self-appointed guardian and arbiter of the downtrodden. Like the Doctor, too, he can be ruthless and go too far, but unlike the Doctor he does not feel remorse for the genocide he committed against the Daleks (though that is not to say that he doesn't feel remorse for all the terrible things the proper Doctor has done). From Donna, Andrew got a general, pervasive feeling of unworthiness and unimportance. While he believes those feelings to be unfounded in her case (Donna is/was, after all, a savior of the universe and a fantastic person to boot), that has not stopped him from neatly adapting her worries that she would never do anything worthwhile with her life to his own situation.

As negatively as he might view himself, though, Andrew is not all doom and gloom. His negative feelings about himself and his place in the world have been somewhat tempered by his time with James, though it still amazes him sometimes that his partner puts up with him -- and that James puts up with him because he wants to. He's well aware that his obliviousness to James's feelings (and his assumptions about how James should feel) nearly cost him the relationship before it even properly started, though that has not stopped him from continuing to let himself be absorbed in his own problems at the expense of paying any mind to the feelings of the people around him. Ironically, despite his self-absorption, Andrew (like the Doctor before him) sees himself as a champion for justice; he will throw himself into danger at the drop of a hat if he believes his efforts will save the lives or freedom of others. While Andrew is finally beginning to get a grasp on his own mortality and to realize that he can't afford to throw away his life when it's the only one he has due to an inability to regenerate, he still struggles with the practical application of that knowledge.

Andrew's moods are mercurial; it's not unusual for him to go from pensive and sulky to bright and manic in the space of minutes, or vice versa. Sometimes he does this deliberately, taking a fake-it-till-you-make-it approach to happiness; other times, his mood genuinely shifts this quickly and he's simply along for the ride. Those who know him well can probably tell which is which.



History:
Handy was brought into existence by accident aboard the Dalek Crucible when Donna Noble touched a jar holding a severed hand belonging to the Doctor. Shortly after his regeneration into his tenth body, the Doctor had lost his right hand (which, he'd previously noted, had a "slight weakness in the dorsal tubercle") in a sword fight atop a spaceship floating above the Earth. Though the hand passed hands at several points, it was back in the possession of the Doctor by the time he and his companions fought the Daleks and Davros aboard the Crucible. Prior to their arrival aboard the Crucible, the Doctor had been shot by a Dalek. He halted the resulting regeneration by off-loading his regeneration energy into the severed hand, which, being a genetic match, functioned as a perfect biological receptacle. The Doctor's intention was to allow the energy to naturally dissipate, but he hadn't counted on the chain of events that led to Donna coming into direct contact with his handy receptacle. Her touch triggered an instantaneous biological meta-crisis through an equal exchange of energies, causing the hand to grow an entire new body based on the mixed biological codes of the Doctor and Donna. Handy awoke with all the memories of the Doctor up until the regeneration, and all of Donna's memories up until she sparked the meta-crisis.

His first acts upon coming to life were to 1.) save the TARDIS (and Donna and himself) from certain destruction, 2.) utterly fail to free his friends from the clutches of Davros, and 3.) commit genocide against the Daleks after Donna saved their friends for him. The Doctor disapproved of that third item, to say the least; after returning the Earth and most of their human companions to their proper places, the Doctor proceeded to strand his meta-crisis double in another universe with Rose Tyler, another companion. The Doctor claimed that his purpose in doing so was to give them a normal human life together and for Rose to temper his double's blood-lust, but Andrew (he chose the name Andrew Noble when it became necessary to have a name other than 'the Doctor') never believed that he had blood-lust in need of tempering...or that the Doctor had done it for any reason other than a desire to get rid of him.

Life in the other universe was difficult. The relationship he was meant to have with Rose never took off; she wanted the real Doctor, and he wanted the real Doctor's life. They fell out and he left around the same time he got fed up with working a human-style job at Torchwood and announced he was taking a furlough while he worked out what he wanted to do with himself. The little money he had to his name was very soon gone thanks to his inexperience in managing his spending (it had never before been necessary). His stubbornness prevented him from going to Rose or his erstwhile coworkers for help, even when he found himself suddenly homeless. He was forced to accept help at a homeless shelter in order to avoid asking it of Rose, and began the slow process of becoming self-sufficient. Along the way, he returned to his job at Torchwood, and eventually found a relatively cheap flat where he could stay while he built up his savings. After his experience on the streets, he developed a tendency to err in the opposite direction, choosing not to upgrade his flat or his furniture even when he reached the point at which he could have afforded to do so.

Around the time he regained independence, Andrew met the android version of the fifth Doctor, and the two took up traveling together for some time. Their meeting and travels were unfortunately erased from the web of time, leaving Andrew stranded on Earth once again and none the wiser, though both of them would later regain those memories. Andrew got to know the android a second time when Time Scoops began to take them out of their respective times and places and deposit them, along with other acquaintances of the Doctor and a smattering of internet-savvy humans, at intergalactic parties. The two became good friends, but when the android was captured by the Master and his personality replaced with a duplicate of the Master's mind, Andrew's response to his friend's sudden spitefulness was to withdraw rather than to attempt to find out what was the matter. He only became aware of the other side of the story after the sixth Doctor rescued the android, who was forced to rebuild his personality from the Doctor and Master personalities still residing in his head.

Andrew invited the recently christened James to come live with him, and the invitation was accepted. They lived together on Earth for half a year, during which time Andrew continued to work at Torchwood, while James worked at a homeless shelter. They managed to accumulate three dogs along the way, and grew quite close. When Andrew began to suspect that his feelings for James weren't entirely platonic, however, he buried those feelings as deeply as he could, so deep that even he believed he only saw James as a friend. James was at that time unable to experience physical pleasure, after all, so it wouldn't have been fair for Andrew to initiate a sexual relationship.

At one of the Time Scoop parties, James was transformed into a biological version of himself, and had sex with the Master for the sake of experimentation. Andrew responded with jealous fury, but it was still up to James to initiate the next step in their relationship, with Andrew quietly rebuffing his first attempts. He finally gave in to James's advances and his own desires, and for a short while they were happy.

A mere week after their first coupling, James was lost to Andrew when he fell through a rift in space and time. Andrew went into mourning, barely maintaining enough functionality to look after the dogs. It was several weeks before he gave up on the return of his own James and turned on the computer that contained a backup copy of his lover. As much as Andrew loved the copy of James, the latter could not provide all the emotional support Andrew needed, not least because James's last backup had been cached before their romance came out into the open. The two of them planned to obtain a spaceship and leave Earth, both to leave bad memories behind and to attempt to find a new body for the duplicate James.

The original James arrived back on earth about two months after he had disappeared, having made his way back from the distant future, righting wrongs and, incidentally, obtaining some upgrades along the way. After a tearful reunion, the pair left in the spaceship in which James had come back, taking the dogs with them. Together, they have visited several planets, and it is while they are on one such visit that Andrew is taken by the Rift.

Character Information
Name: He technically doesn't have one, but he insists on going by 'the Doctor.'
Nickname/aliases: Handy (this is used to refer to him only in the prose; characters should not call him by this name unless in-game events occur to make him known by this nickname); on STEVE he is identified as Doctor [Meta-Crisis Duplicate].
Canon (e.g. Harry Potter/Firefly/Star Trek): Doctor Who
Canon Type (e.g. book, movie, television show, play)?: Television
Character's LJ: [livejournal.com profile] bluesuit_handy
Brief history of your character (100-200 word minimum):
Handy is a human copy of the tenth Doctor, created by a meta-crisis (some might say mishap) involving the Doctor's old severed hand (it's all right, he grew a new one when it was cut off), a human named Donna, and a large amount of insufficiently contained regenerative energy. Handy has all the memories that the Doctor had at the time he transferred the energy to the hand, including growing up on Gallifrey, the Time War, and all of the Doctor's adventures in the TARDIS. He also has a few memories transplanted from Donna's mind that crop up now and then and cause some cognitive dissonance, as she is a temp from Chiswick and her memories do not exactly mesh with what he knows of himself from the Doctor's mind.
Once the crisis during which he was created was resolved (in part due to Handy committing genocide against the Daleks despite the Doctor's disapproval), the Doctor left Handy with Rose Tyler in the alternate universe usually referred to as "Pete's World," where he was intended to live out the rest of his human life span.
Brief synopsis of your character's personality (100 word minimum):
While Handy bears many similarities to the tenth Doctor (a charismatic, highly intelligent man alien with the gift of gab and a tendency toward manic behavior) in both appearance and personality, he also inherited aspects of Donna's personality, leaving him somewhat more brash and smart-mouthed. He is also quicker to anger than the Doctor, and more likely to be petty about perceived slights. Though he will not admit it to anyone, least of all himself, both Donna's low self-esteem and the general circumstances surrounding his creation and subsequent placement with Rose in the alternate universe have left him with deep-seated insecurities about his place in the world. Like the Doctor, however, he has a tendency toward arrogance on account of his superior intellect (when he's not worrying over how much less superior it might be now that it's housed in a human brain). He usually puts on a happy face, though, even when it doesn't reflect his inner moods.

Stats
Age: Going by memories, he is over nine hundred years old. Going by actual physical presence in the world, he is only one day old when he enters the resort. Going by appearance, he seems to be in his mid-thirties.
Appearance (please be sure to include any distinguishing traits that you want other characters to notice, .e.g. scars, eye color, particular jewelry): Looks like the tenth Doctor. Tall, thin almost to the point of gawkiness, unruly brown hair and boggly brown eyes. Often wears the blue suit he snagged from the TARDIS when he was created, though usually with just a t-shirt under the jacket, and always wears chucks. Left-handed, unlike the original.
Icon (100x100 pixels, preferably textless, good quality icon for cast list):


Game Information
What is the point of your character's canon in which you are introducing your character? (Year, after or during book #/comic issue/television episode, etc.) : Immediately after the events of Journey's End, after the Doctor and the others have left Rose and Handy in Pete's world.
Is your character alive or dead at the point of entry to the game?: Alive
What skills does your character have?: Like the Doctor, Handy is a fast talker and a fast runner. He has a grasp of science, particularly the science of time travel, that far exceeds the average human, and he is very good at working with machinery, even machinery he has never seen before. Unlike the Doctor, however, Handy does not have a more accurate than average time sense, and he is a bit of a klutz due to having lost some of his Time Lord senses in the process of coming into existence as half-human.
Your character will find 10 personal items in their room that the island has placed there. You may only include things that your character would have canonically. Please list them here. (Clothing need not be included as it is automatically provided. Any special articles of clothing, however, e.g. a team uniform, must be listed):
Handy only has the odds and ends the Doctor left in the blue suit. These include:
A variety of pens (most of them badly chewed)
A clockwork mouse
Spare reading glasses
A ball of string


Entry Post:

Whether it had been a good day or a bad day was hard to determine. On the one hand (haha), he'd come into existence today, and existing had to be better than not existing--or rather, being a living person had to be better than being a hand in a jar. He could still see himself through the Doctor's eyes in the memories of the time just prior to the incident--just a severed appendage in a container, nothing more, nothing less. It gave him the heebie-jeebies to think about it.

So on the other hand--on the hand that had not previously belonged to another person--there was the matter that coming into existence had meant coming into existence as a mere copy of the Doctor, and most likely an imperfect one at that. There was, after all, a fair bit of Donna in him, and he'd known immediately upon waking up that he was short one heart and surplus several organs that his Time Lord body (the Doctor's Time Lord body) had never needed but that seemed to be working away quite smoothly in this strange new body.

And, too, there was the matter of Rose to consider. The real original Doctor had taken them both back to Pete's world through the hole she had ripped in the universes and stranded them there. And Handy had been grateful--that was the worst of it, he'd been grateful to be the Doctor's cast-off so long as it meant he was the one who got the girl in the end--and oh, that kiss!--but she didn't want him. She wanted the Time Lord edition, and who could blame her? The way she'd pulled away to run toward the TARDIS when she heard it taking off said it all in a second.

To say that Handy was in a foul mood now that he'd had some time and quiet to think things over would have been the understatement of the year. Jackie had called in a zeppelin to pick them up (any other time he would have been delighted to ride in a zeppelin of all things, but he just couldn't muster the enthusiasm now), and the time they'd spent waiting for it had been passed in awkward silence broken only by even more awkward small talk. Rose kept giving him odd looks, and he wondered several times if she was thinking about what the other Doctor had said about him being born of war, like he was some mad dog the Doctor had left for her to try to tame. Jackie kept giving him strange looks, too, but they were more the looks a particularly motherly woman gives a wounded puppy. As much as he could have used some sympathy, he couldn't bring himself to give in to her shows of pity, so he was probably much sharper with Rose's mother than he should have been, which in turn probably did not earn him any favors from Rose herself.

He felt bone weary and his body ached by the time their ride arrived, having run and fought since the moment he'd grown from the hand, only for the adrenaline to wear off while they stood and waited, leaving him feeling hollowed out. He wondered if this was his own form of regeneration sickness, or if he was just falling apart already. How long could this body last, anyway?

It was no surprise to him, then, that he was ready to fall asleep nearly as soon as he sat down in the zeppelin. He was utterly exhausted, and staying awake for the ride home would have been inconceivable.

What was a surprise to Handy, however, was that he didn't make it to the zeppelin before everything suddenly went black, and that he didn't awaken on the aircraft, either. He found himself on a hard floor, surrounded by the legs of chairs. Beyond the chair legs, everything was a bright, disorienting pink. The discovery that he was underneath a table came when he tried to sit up and struck his head on it. He sank back down, hissing and clutching his forehead.

Yeah, this was probably a bad day.
bluesuit_handy: (awkward grin)
Continued from here.


"I'm sure we could work something out," protested Handy, slipping sideways along the desk in an attempt not to be cornered against it. "And--oh--and I'm not human! I'm probably the wrong temperature!" He gave a weak grin that didn't reach his eyes as he wracked his mind for anything he might have in his pockets that would prove a defense against Eric. He did still have the lamp in his hand, at least, and that might do as a weapon.

"Nonsense. I can tell you are," Eric said with a predatory smile as he cocked his head aside slightly. "I'll be very gentle, I promise."

"You're threatening to drink his blood, and we're supposed to trust your word?" Topher asks skeptically. He's never been that quick to trust. He takes another careful step towards them, holding up his hands in a sort of let's not do anything hasty gesture, even if no one is paying too much attention to him.

Who: Handy and Rose
Where: Hallway/Banquet Hall
When: Evening, after Handy's chat with Jack, and after he meets Temperance Brennan; also after Rose's conversation with Jack.
Summary: Troubled by what Jack said about Rose avoiding the Doctor and about her being from "after" Handy, said Handy decides to seek her out.

He couldn't remember a time as the Doctor when he'd been so shy about anything, but then he wasn't really the Doctor. )

Hello! This is the Docto-er, well. This is not the Doctor's voicemail. Not as such. I mean, in a way it is, but then again technically it's really not, and you know what? Let's start over.

You've reached the voicemail of someone, yes, but not the Doctor. Leave me a message and I'll get back to you on that.

Write your character's entrance post (minimum 200 words. You will use this to post your character's entrance into the game.):

The Doctor's human doppelganger (known to some as Handy, though he couldn't say he particularly liked the moniker), meandered slowly along the road that would lead him back to the Tyler mansion, not really paying attention to where he was going. His attention was absorbed by the package of Hobnobs he had purchased less than an hour earlier, and which he was now struggling to open while walking and carrying a bag of bananas and assorted biscuit packages. He'd told himself that he was buying them to share with Rose when she got home from work, but it seemed he was unable to even wait until he got home himself.

In all honesty, it hadn't really been necessary for him to walk down to the shop. The Tylers had cars to spare, and he was fairly certain he would remember how to drive one if he decided to do so. It was fairly likely that the Tylers had chocolate biscuits and bananas to spare as well, but he hadn't looked too hard (or at all) before he had decided to take grocery shopping as an excuse to get out of the house for a while. It wasn't that he didn't enjoy the company of his adoptive family, but all too often he found himself loitering around the mansion in the middle of the day with only Jackie Tyler for company (her son, Tony, was too young to count, as charming as he might be). She seemed to be under the impression that Handy needed looking after - and though he was, strictly speaking, only just over two weeks old, he was still a grown man and there was only so much coddling he could take.

He sighed from thinking about it. She would probably tell him off for ruining his dinner as soon as she saw the biscuits.

Suddenly, he realized that the ground was a lot softer than it had been a moment before. He looked up from the package (which was still resisting his efforts to open it), thinking that he must have walked off the side of the road while he was distracted. The sight that greeted him, however, was far from what he expected. A vast desert stretched out before him where there should have been a nice, quiet little neighborhood. He was suddenly aware of the sun beating down on his head and shoulders with a force it should not have had in England, even in an alternate universe. He spun around, brow furrowed in consternation, only to see that the desert continued in all directions. There was no sign of the shaded lane he had been walking on only moments before.

Turning back to his original direction of travel, Handy spotted a building a few hundred feet away, though he could have sworn it wasn't there before. He eyed it unhappily. Something must have pulled him away from where he had been, and it seemed clear that whatever it was wanted him to go to the building for shelter from the heat. As much as he might dislike it, though, it seemed to be his only option. The heat radiating up from the sand was already beginning to make him sweat - his human body didn't have anywhere near the tolerances for extreme temperatures as that of the original Doctor.

Letting out a resigned sigh, Handy dropped the Hobnobs back in the bag and trudged up to the building. As he got closer, he was able to see that it was an old hotel, extraordinarily dilapidated. He frowned again as he made his way up the bumpy, unkempt drive - why would anyone (or anything) want to bring him to a place like this?

Inside the building, however, was a different matter. The moment he stepped in the door his perception of the place shifted dramatically. The lobby was sparklingly clean, from its gleaming chandeliers to its marble floor. Handy walked slowly through the room, staring about in bewilderment at this new turn of events. None of it made sense to him.

"Welcome to the Hotel California," said a voice, startling him. "We've been expecting you."

"What?" said Handy, turning to face the desk. A concierge had appeared where he could have sworn there was no concierge before. "What do you mean 'expecting' me? And what do you mean by 'we'?"

"We hope you will enjoy your stay," said the concierge, as if Handy hadn't spoken. He pressed a key into Handy's hand and, right in front of Handy's eyes, disappeared, leaving Handy gawking at the empty air behind the desk.
