### Characteristic subgroup of nilpotent group that is not invariant under powering

I want an example of a nilpotent group $G$, a characteristic subgroup $H$, and a prime number $p$ such that:
$G$ is $p$-powered, i.e., every element of $G$ has a unique $p^{th}$ root in $G$.
$H$ is ...

### Extending a representation to a finite little group

I have a question related to Mackey theory applied to discrete nilpotent groups which are not torsion-free and are infinite.
Let us suppose that $G$ is a type I infinite discrete nilpotent group ...
