That's pretty much my thought process for his name. (Ok, sometimes I'm just not that creative.)
On deciding to try out Freedom, the most populous server, there was no preconceived idea as to what kind of character to make, or his look. I ended up with an elf-looking guy, and instead of changing his origin from "mutant", perhaps it would be interesting to have a mutant elf.
He eventually ended up in a service SG, Paragon City Search and Rescue (PCSAR). On it's main server, Infinity, you needed to have the Empathy power set, either as a defender or controller. The rules seemed to be relaxed for it's less-active extension SG, though. He could heal and teleport others, what else should one need?
