Psychic Handlers

I'm sure you'er all familiar with Project Stargate. Thinking is that the (classified, not officially part of the government) program the generals psychics are from is descended from that, called jokingly Stargate Academy by the psychics, when they aren't calling it something vague like the institute, center, lab, or what have you. The place probably has no proper name.

The general idea is they find, train, and make psychics. Natural born psychics, such as Proximi descended from Atlantis, are usually stable(ish) while psychics that are made generally have more powers. Thomas, the most normal of the crew is natural born. Using unspecified but inhuman means the institute can make normal people into psychics. The stress of these methods causes the trauma that makes the other psychics less than stable, or perhaps psychological trauma is what allows the methods to work. Chicken and egg approach is fun.

Thomas Nelson
If there is any supernatural blood in Thomas he's never known about it. Since birth however he's been able to see auras on people. As a child this made people think he was a little crazy but it also made him very good at reading people making for an overall wash. As he got older he learned to stop talking about the colors around people and made use of his talents to generally get what he wanted, socially speaking. In collage he was recruited to the old Project Stargate altho in the late 80's it was on it's way out. Under their tutelage he developed his powers to read the energy off places and things (psychometry) and to resist psychic powers. As most of the program was getting gutted for being a crazy and impossible wast of taxpayer money he jumped ship into the areas that would become the institute. At the institute controlled sensory deprivation, neural implants, and shared sensory impute are used to develop telepathic rapports between agents, and thus his bond to Kat was built to allow them to work as a team.

He's still an Indiana boy at hart, from the small town and having worked as farm labor growing up, sort of an all american type. If he weren't psychic he'd be quite the average guy but as is his life was swept up into strange conspiracies and seeming impossibilities.

F2, Subject 3 aka Kat
One (fictional) branch of Stargete adopted from Nazi scientists worked on identifying and breeding humans for psychic potential. Kat is a second generation subject raised in the institute and forced to use psychic abilities since early childhood. Because of the strong focus of her early education she became quite adept at reading minds but never quite picked up the whole speech thing properly. She doesn't like being an experiment but doesn't know any life outside the institute altho she's excited to be a field agent now, this being her first assignment.

To Kat the strange inbred politics and endless paranormal research of the lab is normal. The idea of having a normal family, friends, freedom of movement without sneaking out of your cell, and so on are all strange concepts she's never been exposed to. It may be bizarre but she has friends back in the institute, other child subjects, some kind older people, a prisoner or two. The whole place is a messed up mix of personal, professional, scientific, and occult. Anyone that stays there long term tends to find themselves drawn into the dysfunctional family atmosphere of the place, doubly so for the children raised there.

Mike Conner aka "Psybert"
He was a mild mannered accountant until he snapped and burned his office down. He was recruited to the program where they honed his pyrokinetic abilities. The result is twitchy and unstable but very dangerous around flammables.

Miles should have more answers about this one.

Linsy Moore
Linsy was always a little off, a little to violent and a little distant from those around her. She joined the military out of high school and went to Iraq. There she earned herself a dishonorable discharge for general instability, brutality, and difficulty following orders. This in tern marked her as a good candidate for psychic training giving her a shot at a new job where regulations are lax and damaged minds are part of the business. In the even that there is an opportunity to kill changelings she's here to take advantage of it.

Jin, you should come up with more background.
