Noriko Ashida or Nori - as she prefers to be called - was a drug-addicted runaway when she arrived at the school, self medicating in an effort to control the hyperactive state her electrokinetic powers left her in. This, combined with a most un-Japanese slacker attitude, made things difficult at first, but a relationship with Julio Richter and a realisation she could actually rely on people made her gradually begin to cooperate with her fellow New Mutants. A successful completion of her junior year of school prompted her parents to bring her home to Japan - whether this is a successful experiment remains to be seen.
X-Project is an X-Men movieverse RPG on Livejournal. Set after X2, we've been running since May 2003 and use a combination of in-character journals and email/IM logs. There's a number of settings for a range of play, whatever your preference, and we accept new characters as well as encourage people to adopt one of our orphans.
