Sean (1991-2020) is a half-blood mutant and a male NoHead. He went to Superhero School, befriending Roger Black and Mykew Hadeline in the process, and upon graduating college, began a search for the NoHeads that ended with his registration to their cause in 2014. To cut off any ties with his old life, Mr. Stupid NoHead also murdered Sean's parents. The following day, he also met a fellow NoHead named Annabeth Black, and while he quickly developed a crush on her, Annabeth did not feel the same way. However, their relationship became much better after he saved Annabeth's life. The two developed a close friendship from there, one of platonic, but not romantic, love. Sean fought in the Battle of the Wasp shortly before his death at the hands of the Police Grand Army.
Early life Edit
Sean graduated his eleventh year at the alarmingly early age of sixteen and began attending Superhero University. During the Battle of Superhero University, Sean, along with Bethany Donner, chose to remain in the school in order to bring Sheriff Bladepoint to Mr. Stupid NoHead. He finally encountered Bladepoint, but too late, and Donner waved him out. Bladepoint, Joseph Abernathy, and Roxanne Waterston spotted Sean pleading with a NoHead that he was on his side, but they ignored him as they had already stumbled upon a similar situation. 
Becoming a NoHead Edit
It is unknown what Sean did immediately after his graduation, but he may have joined Roger, who had since become the Gladiator. This is believable, as Roger was Sean's best friend at school. In 2013, he took a 'Grand Tour' around the world in order to hopefully find the NoHeads, partly out of curiosity, partly out of a desire for importance. A year later, his journey proved successful as he did indeed find Brute Gunray, who took him to Mr. Stupid NoHead (though Gunray's motives are unknown). In the NoHead Base, NoHead interrogated him, though Sean insisted that he only wanted to join the NoHeads. Finally, NoHead told him he could join if he could pass a test before him. He took him to NR-327, who attacked Sean with low-energy bullets. Finally, he threw one back via telekinesis, before diving in and ripping apart the robot in a rage. Satisfied, NoHead told him he had passed, and anointed him as a NoHead apprentice.
Before they began the training, Mr. Stupid NoHead took Sean to the latter's home. There, he burst in and killed his parents. Sean was outraged, and angrily turned his lightning upon NoHead. NoHead, however, deflected the attack and told him if his parents meant that much to him, he was not truly NoHead material. Sean apologized and they returned to the NoHead Base, though Sean was still depressed over the loss of his family.
Between the wars Edit
- "I must say, darling, I think well of your table manners, pretty girl."
- ―Sean flirting with Annabeth Black[src]
The following day, he also met Annabeth Black, a high-ranking member of the Order, and while he quickly developed a crush on her, Black did not feel the same way. This unusual affection was not of the carnal type, but something far more sophisticated — no one else would talk to him at all and he needed someone to latch onto in light of his parents' death. Sean immediately stuttered upon meeting her, telling her she "looked like a nerd. An adorable one." Annabeth became offended, until Sean said he meant that she looked beautiful. Annabeth told her to stop hitting on her. Sean apologized and left. The following day, he joined her at breakfast, where he kept his silence. However, he finally slipped that he "thinks well of [her] table manners, pretty girl". From there, Annabeth punched him so roughly that he fell out of his chair.
In March 2015, Annabeth had a terrible dream about modern pop music. Sean was sleeping nearby when Annabeth woke up and expressed her relief that it was only a dream. Sean asked if she was all right, and Black swore at him, who called her a savage under his breath and went back to sleep.
Two months later, Sean heard Annabeth screaming as a series of vines began to strangle her downstairs. Rushing downstairs, he used a powerful light blast to repel the vines, saving Annabeth's life. Black thanked him for his help, and Sean apologized for tailing her. He also explained the truth about his feelings for her, believing Annabeth may have mistaken him for simply thinking she was beautiful. He then offered to carry her backpack if she wanted, and Black gratefully approved. From there she was able to see who he really was. The two developed a close friendship from there, one of platonic, but not romantic, love.
When Black began giving private lessons in Mind resistance to Bartholomew Gales on the orders of Mr. Stupid NoHead, Sean found it to be a good idea and encouraged Gales to do his best to progress and for Black to do her best to be a patient teacher. However, their lessons proved disastrous and Black kicked Gales out of her bedroom where they were being given. Gales told Sean, and notably no one else, about that. Sean explained that Annabeth was under a lot of stress, and also revealed that she was younger than he thought she was (he thought she was in her thirties; she was only nineteen).
Second NoHead War Edit
Battle of the Wasp Edit
Upon learning that Rotta Hecks had successfully captured Mayor Katie Black from New York City, Sean immediately went to intercept them. Although he failed to capture them, he instead chose to help take down the police's power source, which the Wasp was already engaging. With Sean manning a cannon, the cruisers traded turbolaser and proton torpedo fire with the power source Sat point-blank range. Both vessels took heavy damage in the exchange, but the power source ultimately won, sending the Wasp plunging towards the streets. Sean immediately made for an escape pod, and successfully fled the base. When he returned, he found the NoHeads celebrating their success. However, Baby Intelligence and his new friend, Sebiscuits Cardarphen, managed to free the Mayor and escape.
Operation: Purge Edit
Shortly afterwards, Annabeth was sent to patrol on Pennsylvania, and Sean wished her luck in her task. Mr. Stupid NoHead had told him about Operation: Purge, which made him very excited. Eventually, Rotta communicated with him, telling the NoHead that he needed to go to the Emergency NoHead Base. Mere moments after Rotta left, Sean was contacted by Annabeth. She vented to him that she feared for her safety with police after her, and that she would prefer to travel to the Second NoHead Base with the other NoHeads in a convoy. Sean agreed with this, and promised he would come for her in Pennsylvania. After she left, Sean proceeded to depart for the Emergency NoHead Base.
When the NoHead fleet emerged out of hyperspace at the Emergency NoHead Base, Sean landed his plane, which he was sharing with two other NoHeads, in the base and climbed out of it, where he was surprised to find several chambers where he could settle down, clean up, and have a good meal. After finishing in the shower, Annabeth set off to find Sean. Sean was angry at their situation, as Mr. Stupid NoHead had offered them riches and the chance to rule the world, but now they were on the run, unable to return home for the time being. After finding Annabeth, Sean expressed this to her, who had more faith in NoHead than he did. Just then, Mr. Stupid NoHead called for them in the central chamber. With a grin, Black told Sean he should reconsider, and then the two joined everyone else, who were regrouping in the chamber. NoHead appeared on a large hologram and told everyone it was safe to return to the NoHead Base. Sean told Annabeth she was right all along, before everyone headed off.
Seeking Baby Intelligence Edit
- "Get over here."
Under orders from Mr. Stupid NoHead, who had learned that Baby Intelligence was abroad seeking out three scrolls that could bring about his fall from power, Sean accompanied the NoHead Recruits as they sought out Baby Intelligence meaning to thwart his mission at all costs. They stopped to rest at an outcrop, and just as they were preparing to leave again Sean came to suspect, rather accurately, that Baby Intelligence was hiding under a boulder. Unfortunately for the Recruits, however, Black found this extremely unlikely and claimed they did not have time to "upturn every stone in the solar system". She firmly told Sean to respect her authority and instructed the group to leave and head for a nearby city, continuing their search elsewhere and in vain.
Battle of the Eastern Field Edit
- "The Dark Lord is summoning the gods to reshape the universe by his side. Until you stepped in. No brutal punishment is sufficient to atone for your crime. You have killed Mother Nature, you have killed the Gods, and for that, you must be slain in thy turn."
- ―Unidentified clergy[src]
It was revealed decades after Sean was killed that the clergy of the Styricat worshiped the NoHead Recruits as deities. They considered Sean to have helped Mother Nature (or Annabeth Black) create the universe, though it is rather unlikely they knew what his name was.
Physical description Edit
Sean was very pale, and his hardened skin was slightly transparent. He had wide, staring, black eyes and a gaunt face. He also sported black, frizzy hair and carried his sword under his belt. He had long, dirty fingernails, something that turned off Annabeth Black. Sean spoke in a hoarse whisper.
Personality and traits Edit
Sean was described as a "fierce, hot-tempered man". He insisted on having his way in interactions, responding with violent uncontrolled anger when contradicted. However, he seemed to have a cordial relationship with Mr. Stupid NoHead. He also seems to have a great deal of pride. Sean had tender feelings for Annabeth Black, but was unable to find the right way to let her know. Although Sean had a wide knowledge of Fobbles, he, like other NoHeads, hated them, as well as Fobble-borns and half-bloods and most likely people who were power traitors (ironically, however, Sean himself was half-blood).
Powers and abilities Edit
Sean was trained as a NoHead, leaving him to focus more on his fighting skills. He was known to have a clever mind and had an excellent aptitude for theoretical learning, particularly when it came to dark powers (though was less competent in the application of that knowledge). Apart from being proficient in telekinesis, Sean possessed the power of flight, a difficult power that even certain NoHead Masters could not apply with success. Whilst this made him a highly intelligent student and a successful NoHead recruit, he was noted to have gained a significant amount of power after his training as a NoHead. He was apparently skilled with conjuration, a difficult branch of Transfiguration. He was uncommonly gifted with handling wild animals as well.
Sean had a wide knowledge of fobbles, even though he hated them.
Annabeth Black Edit
Although Sean instantly had a crush on Annabeth Black, Annabeth did not feel the same way. After he saved her from a series of vines, however, the two were able to come clear. From there, he was on good terms with Annabeth. She was his best friend among the NoHead ranks, and he had almost as much respect for her as he did for leading authorities in the group.
Both of them confided in each other their greatest fears, and Annabeth was more than patient in letting Sean vent to her. Sean would return this form of affection. When Annabeth became afraid that two police would kill her in Pennsylvania, she immediately contacted him, telling him that she feared for her safety with police after her, and that she would prefer to travel to the Second NoHead Base with the other NoHeads in a convoy. Sean agreed with her and resolved to come back for her, indicating how much he valued her life. She valued his life as well, as shown when she relentlessly defended him from oncoming robot soldiers. When they returned to the Base, Annabeth got herself clean and immediately searched for Sean, who knew he could comfort her.
Sean was angry at their situation, and expressed this to her, who had more faith in NoHead than her friend did. He served her loyally after the Battle of Yellowstone.
Bartholomew Gales Edit
Sean and Bartholomew Gales seemed to get along quite well. Bartholomew trusted Sean not to judge him for the reason their lessons ended, and thereby confided in him what he didn't confide in anyone else. Sean told him why he should show Annabeth love and forgive her, rather than letting their lack of communication turn them against each other. Their views of each other were probably heavily influenced by the fact that Sean used to have a crush on Annabeth and it is safe to assume that Barty still did.
Bethany Donner Edit
Sean was friends with Bethany, and he was one of the few people whom she considered to be her equal. However, Sean did not feel compelled to join any gang, including Bethany's. Sean did assist Bethany in the Dark Tower until she felt he was no longer needed and sent him off. It is also said that they had known each other prior to their arrival at Superhero School.
Mr. Stupid NoHead Edit
Sean first met Mr. Stupid NoHead in 2014, in the Third NoHead Base, where NoHead subjugated Sean into servitude. However, NoHead did not take kindly to failure or disloyalty from him. Despite Sean's unwavering loyalty, the Dark Lord saw him as little more than a servant to be destroyed when his use for the Grandmaster went dry. In the midst of war, however, Sean's trust in NoHead began to waver, having come to believe he had betrayed him.
