It's not that your not wanted, your more than welcome to be here.
But at the same time, i also can't allow can't allow a form of powergaming, (which coincidentally is not allowed on any of the Role Play's an is listed in the main forums rules.) known as "Deus ex Machina" ((The term is Latin for "god out of the machine"))
A Deus ex Machina is an outside force or a plot element that didn't previously exist and has no logical explanation behind it, that solves a seemingly unsolvable problem in an extremely unlikely (and, usually, anticlimactic) way.

“GOD DANGIT!” he yelled as he got the lasso. Surprisingly, he chanelled rage into power,taking a piece of metal from his pocket,and reflecting the lasso into the ship.
It blew up.
“THERE!There's the camp!”
He sharpened a broken branch,and headed to to river,spearing the “alien spider”. Fianally rescuing Blood.
Would have effectively ENDED the Alien encounter adventure, before it ever got started!
if the other characters had decided to go along with it.
Nothing we do in RV, would ever even remotely be a challenge for your superhero powered character.
As the temp. GM of RV.
I have to rule that the character does not possess this ability or special power while in RV.
So your options now are.
#1, post that your character is captured as the others have done.
#2, post that your character somehow escapes capture. Like crawling down into a manhole or something.
#3, avoiding the alien encounter altogether, an posting that you come across the cat up in the tree next to Dimitri's house.
#4, avoiding the alien encounter, an showing up at Dimitri's house to play video games with the other pets there.
#5, post that the character is doing something else, like going to the Wall for coffee an breakfast, since it is early morning after all.
If this is not except-able, or if you can't resist powergaming to set yourself up as the hero.
We will regrettably have to ask you to leave the RV role play.
