Profile:

Jay is a new hire as well as an infiltration specialist. He has a degree in both mechanical and computer engineering, and so should be able to bypass both mechanical and electronic security systems. He is also highly trained in stealth and has practical experience in infiltration. His known powers are the ability to create either full sized or miniature duplicates of himself or small creatures. He also has the ability to completely dissolve is bodily mass into small insects and because of these abilities is very resistant to damage.

,,

There is very little valid information regarding his history prior to his degrees and his eruption. According to personal testimony, and in the absence of contradicting information, it is believed that he erupted on or shortly after the Surge, and it has been stated that he had a 'nice family'. More information hopefully forthcoming.

Real Name: Jason Liam Grant
Nova Name: None
Identity: Public
Date of Birth: May 24, 1995
Age: 19
Place of Birth: Olivet, Kansas, USA
Occupation: Farmer/Novastorm Employee
Legal Status: Citizen of the US with no criminal record
Known Relatives: Abraham Grant (Father), Marion Bixley-Grant (Mother), Darren Grant (Older Brother)
Date of Eruption: March 23, 2012

Appearance
At 6' and 173 pounds, Jason looks like the stereotypical hunky farm boy. He is blonde haired and blue eyed with an athletic build that comes from hard physical labor rather than a gym workout. His skin is tanned from working outside most of his life.

While Jason has a suit of Eufiber, he tends to wear clothes more appropriate to farming most of the time. This usually consists of work boots, jeans and flannel shirts.

Known Powers
The scientists at Novastorm have concluded that Jason’s abilities are turning him in to the perfect quantum hunter. His speed and agility have been heightened to superhuman levels as has his intelligence and perception. He is able to perceive Quantum Fields and he has developed the ability to analyze just about anything to discover its flaws and weaknesses.


More importantly, Jason has gained the ability to manipulate Quantum fields, both his own and those of other Novas. He can disrupt these fields, causing other Novas to “loose” some of their powers for a short time, and with a touch he can replicate those fields in his own, temporarily gaining the powers of other Novas. Also, Jason can drain of portions of another persons Quantum field making his own stronger in a variety of ways. This also requires him to touch his targets

Known History
Before his eruption, Jason was the youngest son of Abraham and Marion Grant; A farming family in Kansas. He was a bright boy with a boundless imagination which was encouraged by both of his parents (Although that didn't exempt him from pulling his weight around the farm). While his older brother (by 13 years) was being groomed to take over the farm, Jason was expected to go to college. Jason's life was average for the most part and would have stayed that way if not for S-Day.

Jason Erupted on March 23, 2012 at 5:18pm, when a Nova with weather manipulating powers tore through the little town of Olivet. While the specifics of Jason's eruption are undocumented it is known that he stopped the out-of-control Nova before falling into a coma. Jason was seen by a variety of doctors all of which could not diagnose the cause of his comatose state and after about two months he was transferred into the care of Novastorm doctors via a special arraignment with Jason’s parents.


Jason was under the care of Dr. Kaitlyn Weaver for about a year, waking up mid-2013. After some brief negotiations, Jason signed on as an employee of Novastorm and Dr. Weaver began a training regimen to help him develop his Nova potential.

Kaitlyn Tabitha Weaver nee Evelyn

,,

Vital Statistics:

HT: 5 ft. 8 in. (was 5 ft 2 in before eruption)
WT: 130 lbs.
Hair: Dark Red
Eyes: Tri-colored: Dark green outer ring, hazel center ring, blue inner ring.
Age: 31 years old

Marital Status: Married (Daniel Edward Weaver)

Parents: Isabel Ciara Evelyn (mother), Leonard Grant Adamson (estranged)
Children: None

Occupation: Research Lead at NovaStorm

Eruption: April 1, 2009 (Admitted to Manorah Medical Center ER for a debilitating migraine and erupted on-site)

Brief Background:
Kaitlyn was in Kansas City during the Surge and one of the earlier people affected. Rising from "new faceless government grunt" to "possibly the most intelligent person on the planet", Kaitlyn embraced her newfound abilities with great glee and determination. She made contact with Dr. Aziz and joined in the creation and early days of Novastorm, spearheading numerous R&D teams (and worrying everyone when she'd regularly go several weeks with out sleep, then crash for a day or two, then rinse and repeat). Unlike many novas, or at least contrary to the popular media's portrayal of most new novas, Kaitlyn did not divorce her baseline husband and the two are still quite happily married (Daniel is thrilled to be a "kept man"). Kaitlyn has spent much of the past five years ensconced in her labs, learning everything she can about novas, quantum, and the Surge. In studying the Surge, she's come to focus on Seattle and the people there; she's quickly came to the conclusion that she needs field time to learn anything new and has been training herself and another member of her research team in the combat skills necessary for anyone deliberately going into those places. Given the total non-rate of people returning from Seattle, she's planning on starting in other zones, but the ultimate goal is to discover how to get in and out of Seattle and get good intel on what's going on there.

Before the “Surge” of April 2009 Dr. Nathaniel Delacosta was a geologist determined to do 2 things: irrefutably prove that peak oil had already been reached, and estimate the remaining stock of crude oil left in the world. He hoped that with the facts about what was left available to the public, it would motivate more research in the realm of alternate energy sources. The company he worked for (Exxon) was told a different story; they were under the assumption that he had developed a way to “coax” more oil from the earth’s reserves using a method similar to squeezing a pimple. This profitable goal was to be executed by utilizing an array of specially built seismic emulators all of which were of Delacosta’s design. Using the faux seismic activity as a form of sonar, the company hoped to map the untapped oil reserves and enjoy exclusive rights to newer resource caches.

Unfortunately, the seismic array Nathaniel designed had another function discovered in testing: it could induce a full-scale earthquake when used near enough to an existent fault line; this in turn would generate tsunamis, and agitate volcanoes, and generally dispense destruction over a wide area. During the Surge was the first test run of the equipment out at what was thought to be a dry field in Texas. Once the dangerous effects of the equipment were found Nathaniel shut the project down. He was attempting to correct this gross oversight to his design when the terrorists attacked. In the ensuing battle with security the prototype was activated and immediately blanketed the entire lab in a localized quake that destroyed all the equipment, and buried the lab with most of its inhabitants in a sinkhole. Dr. Delacosta erupted at the bottom of a sinkhole surrounded by the shattered remains of his designs and entombed corpses of the attackers, and his coworkers. Tons of dirt and rock shifted away from him and deposited him to the surface. When he was discovered, he was far enough away that he was assumed to have fled before the collapse. The whole incident was covered in the media as a terrorist attack and no mention was given to the nature of the experiments performed in the isolated research facility.

When he discovered his powers, he kept them a secret from the company and put in his resignation. While the terrorist attack was cited (not incorrectly) as the reason for the experiment failure, and insurance returns spurred the board to provide a chance to try again, Nathaniel took this opportunity to end the project before it could be developed into a superweapon. As a precaution for insuring that the design remained his he’d intentionally left certain key components out of any specs copied to the company archives, but he still has misgivings about his design being used again.

With the savings he’d accrued from his work he moved out to a small cabin in the nether reaches of Montana. There in the quiet, forested hills he learned control of his power and resumed his original goal. The world was abuzz with the nova craze, but he paid this no mind, busy as he was perfecting a technique that allowed him to detect oil deposits with his own powers. Novastar technology found him when an area he was surveying (which was a resort) was attacked by giant mutant arthropods. He wasn’t really trying to defend the patrons as much as he was trying to defend himself, but the remaining security cams made his efforts look very heroic indeed. Additionally he delayed the creatures enough with his amateur struggles that armed forces could get to the scene and deal with them.

Elizabeth "Dragonstorm" Perot


Vital Statistics:

Personal Information:
Identity: Elizabeth Perot
Nicknames: Beth
Occupation: Superhero, Novastorm agent
Marital Status: Single
Allegiance(s): Novastorm, friends, family

Physical Traits:
Weight: 158 lbs
Height: 5’8â€
Apparent age: mid-twenties
Age: 37
Gender: Female
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Dark brown
Handedness: Right

Appearance: Tall and visually arresting, Beth is a striking woman. She doesn’t evoke beauty in the normal sense of the word: she doesn’t have the exaggerated curves that many nova women have. Instead, her quantum attractiveness is tied to her aura of command. She has brown hair and eyes; the latter are usually sparkling with good humor or filled with her formidable sense of personality.

Skills and Personality
Abilities/Special Skills: Beth is physically strong, with an ability to lift that far surpasses most humans. She’s quick to pick up new physical skills, and her body knits itself if injured. More beautiful than a human can manage on their best day, she’s none the less not a ‘bombshell’ of a woman. Instead, she draws attention through her majesty and natural sense of command. Personally, she prizes most her artistic gift - her strong storytelling and writing skills were enhanced by her eruption. She’s now as famous for her writing as she is for her limited acting gigs.

Personality: Beth is known for her dignity at work, her fun-loving side outside of work, and good-natured spirit. She is generous and willing to make friends, though she doesn’t allow people into her inner circle easily. She enjoys helping people in need and sees as elevating all humankind as one of the noblest activities of humans. She’s also a party animal who enjoys the kind of celebrity lifestyle she never thought she’d have. She lives life to the fullest, seeming to enjoy her nova status completely.

Powers
Smaug’s Might [Lifter] - Beth can lift much more weight than her inherent strength suggests. She’s been quoted as saying, “I just lift with my knees.â€
Tiamat’s Grace [Physical Prodigy] - Learning new physical tasks comes easily to Beth. Kaitlin finds it a little disgusting, except for when her taller friend uses it to her advantage.
Hydra’s Heads [Regeneration] - Beth’s wounds heal unusually; instead of just closing as many other’s do, her skin extrudes “scales†made of golden light. They cover the wounds, harden, heal them, and fall off. The scales dissolve within minutes like any other quantum expression.
Draco’s Stories [Artistic Genius - Writing] - One of Beth’s most subtle gifts if her increased skill at crafting stories. Globally, she’s best known for the High Passes Series, a fantasy epic set in a world made only of mountains.
Winged Majesty [Awe-Inspiring & Commanding Presence] - Beth can compel a sense of wonder in people with effort. This supplements her quantum-enforced ability to command people. Both of these powers make Beth deeply uncomfortable because they play with people’s emotions. She uses them sparingly.
Weather Witch [Weather Manipulation (Alter Temperature, Weather Alteration)] - Changing the temperature of an area and altering weather systems to her whim is one of Beth’s favorite active powers. She’s learned to be careful with these powers; they have devastating potential.
Breath Weapon [Quantum Blast (Lightning)] - Instead of drawing bolts from the sky like Zeus of old, Beth delivers her blasts directly from her mouth. “It makes my tongue tingle and causes my breath to be ozoney-fresh.â€
Wings of the Dragon [Flight] - This is definitely Beth’s favorite active power. She loves to take to the air, generating quantum wings that pull her into the air. These wings are purely for show; tests have demonstrated that they can pass through solid objects and people without affecting their ability. They are an outward expression of her quantum powers.
Foe-Render [Claws] - Another ‘dragon power’ expressing itself as a golden claws in an overlay of her fingers, Beth’s primary up-close weapons are four inches long and can cut through many substances.

Background
There was little to denote Elizabeth as special in her early life. She had many of the trials and victories of modern life. Her rural upbringing happened in the care of a farmer and a teacher. She grew up in the Bible belt, though that didn’t last after college. It took her two tries to pass college and her failed attempt at a Masters ended any desire for a formal education.

She turned to writing, even as she took administrative jobs to pay the bills. That resulted in her paying the bills and eventually finishing a book that went no where. She plodded along in her life, doing little of note until her eruption.

She lived in Kansas City when the event started. Kansas City was spared largely from quantum storms and doesn’t have a nearby zone. Beth was one of the early novas, erupting at the same time as her best friends Kait and Rena. The three because known as the Kansas City Angels though they didn’t fight crime together or have a boss named Charlie. Beth aided the police directly rather than embark on vigilante action.

When Kait found and joined Novastorm, Beth followed her. While working for Novastorm, Beth wrote the first two books of the High Passes series, both of which were selected for publication by Tor. Because of her nova status, people bought the first book out of curiosity (not to mention her book was mentioned in many news outlets). She became a wildly popular author almost overnight.

The High Passes series was picked up as a movie and Beth began to meet Hollywood names. She also started dating them, starting with Chris Pine shortly after he was selected to play Roccio, the lead in the High Passes. He was only the first in a string of single famous men.

At the same time, Beth had selected her nova name and was rising in Novastorm’s ranks. She has a reputation as a reliable employee and a hard worker. There are rumors that she’s on track to join Novastorm’s corporate echelons, while others argue they’d never remove her from the field until they replace her.

The%2520Sorceress.jpg
Name: Seraph Orissa Harmony

Nova Name: the Druid

Type: Alpha Class Nova

Nature: Hedonist (Mainly, there's a touch of Caregiver in her as well)

Occupation: Linguist

,,

Background:

Seraph loved nature in all of it's many variations long before the Surge struck her part of the world during the a storm, though before her transformation she worked as a linguist and translator, something she still does today, but on a far broader basis then she did before. She's grown into a decent martial artist, though she has other options, she's quite capable of defending herself on a number of levels, and is a fairly able combatant, and while she's not a pacifist, she prefers to avoid violence when possible.

,,

Inheriting a small fortune from her great uncle, which then then invested, she had purchased a houseboat on the the river Columbia, on the edge of the city of Portland in the state of Oregon, when the Surge hit the world. Rainstorms are common in that part of the world regularly, and Seraph loved them, which was why she was outside on the roof of her houseboat enjoying the feel of the rain on her skin, when the surge hit her city, and she was struck by lightning, which was much rarer, rain was common enough, lightning much less so. The blast knocked her into the river, and most likely saved her from some of the worse effects folks in the rest of the world experienced. It also would have ended up with her drowning in the river, if she hadn't erupted as a nova that moment as well.

,,

Her body adapted to the river within an instant, altering to produce gills in tune with her underwater environment, though she wasn't to wake for a good deal longer, the blast of lightning had also knocked her unconscious, and so she floated about 10 feet deep underwater while the rest of the world got to experience the dangers of the surge. Within an hour she rouse out of the water, confused, and changed, her body and mind no longer anything near normal.

,,

It took her a while to come to terms with it, and some of the changes were more mental then physical, and not just her powers. Her libido has increased slightly, not as much as some novas (such as those with Hormonal Imbalance: Lust), but still noticeably enhanced. Furthermore, her powers over weather are very strong, so strong that she's still struggling to gain control over them, as her emotional state can affect the weather, storms tend to gather when she's angry, to the point of lightning striking if she's furious, it rains when she cries (because of happiness or sadness), and gets foggy or warm when she's embarrassed, impatience can make things warmer around her, and when she's bored her presence has a tendency to make things colder.. in general, it's a good idea to keep her happy and content, that's when the weather remains the most normal, unless she's actively attempting to control it.

,,

With regards to other powers, she seems to be a full metamorph, able to alter shape and form with increadible ease, so much so that her body adepts to hostile environments instantly, she can also make cosmetic alterations to her appearance with ease, and can even consciously alter her fertility, should she chose. Furthermore, she always has loved nature, now it seems that nature loves her back, trees and animals come to her when called and protect her if she's threatened, animals that are vicious and dangerous to anyone else seem to adore her. Someone once said it was like she was some kind of druid, and the name stuck, today she's know as 'the Druid' as her nova name, though her friends know she prefers her actual name.

,,

She has not only rescued people using her powers, but she's also taken the time to rescue animals, and has even taken a moment to rescue potted plants from ruined homes in the aftermath of dealing with the changes in the world. Her control over weather allows her to deal with fires by summoning rain, or catching folks with the wind if she has a moment. At this point, it's a good thing she doesn't need to eat, because she can't stand to consume anything that might have been a friend, which is all living things.

,,

Seraph becomes highly uncomfortable when in a confined area, to the point of near panic, which can have some rather horrendous effects on the weather, so it's generally a good idea to let her remain in large open spaces, elevators and small closets are a bad thing to put her in. She is also available for consulting with regards to folks involved in the scientific fields of biology, zoology and botany, as well as linguistics as both a linguist and a translator, she works with Dr. Weaver fairly regularly in those matters and has a friendly regard toward the far more intelligent scientist.

,,

Joining Nova Tech

,,

Coming to terms with her abilities, the changes that had developed in her took some time, and she turned into a bit of a party goer, but also turned out to help and defend folks under attack by the many monsters and creatures that she drew the attention of Dr. Calvin Aziz, who sent a scout to take a look before coming out to talk to her himself.

,,
  • Letter to Dr. Calvin Aziz. (From a Mega-Perceptive agent)
    • Sir
    • Yes, it turns out that rumors of the Druid are true, though she prefers her actual name as 'Seraph' to term folks around her have been using. She's a woman with exceptional powers over the various aspects of nature, as you asked for my assessment, I scanned her quantum signature, it's all true. She can control the weather, talk to any plant or animal and speak more languages then I can count and can shapeshift into any living being that can be imagined. Besides all of that, she demonstrates superhuman beauty, grace, intelligence and stamina, her stamina is the most remarkable part, and she doesn't seem to need to eat, drink or sleep, on some level it seems her body has taken her shapeshifting abilities to give her extreme degrees of adaptation, as a natural bio-product. She seems to be something of a hedonist, enjoying herself fully, but she also appears to have some sense of responsibility both for those around her and for the environment in general, I recommend recommend recruitment as soon as possible, she would certainly be a asset for our team.
    • Sincerely Yours

It was not too much longer after this then the Dr. approached her with an offer, one that she thought quite generous and didn't want to refuse, as she likes to help folks, and enjoys herself in the process.

Background
Shane is a troubled soul with much to prove. For his father had left not to long after he was born leaving his mother with no income and a newborn to raise. Now while it didn't take Marriam much time at all to find work, the work she had found was as a ranch hand on a local horse ranch in Montgomery, Texas. The owner Bill Cunningham and his wife Catherine were kind enough not only to employ her but to take her and little Shane in as well.
When it came time for Shane to receive an education it was decided upon that he would be home schooled since there was still much work to be done and he was now old enough to start earning his keep. Life was hard but there were rewards especially when Bill decided to start training him to ride horses. Now Shane showed a natural talent for this and took to it rather quickly and so it was decided that Shane would start riding in the shows professionally.
There life had finally turned around as far as he seen it until the day that his mother had been brutally raped while out running errands for the ranch. It was at this point that there lives would take a turn for the worse. For not only was his mother hospitalized and stuck on life support but she had contracted HIV from her assailant. Thankfully Shane had the loving support of the Cunningham's during this time of emotional distress. Otherwise Shane's actions might have led him down a much darker path. While those intentions might have been honorable and maybe even justifiable they still would have been outside the law. So to keep the boys anger and frustration at bay Bill decided the boys anger would be better put to use with more work upon the ranch. Months went by and the police eventually caught Marriam's attacker, however while her vitals were stable she still hadn't come to.
Two years would go by before his mother would eventually wake up and be released. While this should have been a happy reunion the memory of what happened still lay fresh upon Shane's mind. For the next several days both Shane and his mother would be engaged in a long debate about him joining the Marines. Eventually through the help of Mr. Cunningham Shane would manage to plead his case. This led to several long discussions with several different military recruiters. Eventually his mother had convinced him that if he was dead set upon this decision that the Air-Force seemed to be the best fit.
Now Shane rose rather quickly through the ranks and managed to earn his bachelors in Areospace Grounds Equipment mechanics. Over time he grew tired of being a mechanic and put a request in to transfer into OTS to become a fighter pilot. Eventually the request was granted and he would start training anew.
Unfortunately this is where his career as a Airmen would end, because what should have been a routine training session in a G-force simulator turned out to be cataclysmic. As the simulator began to spool up something went terribly wrong with the machinery and it began to spin quickly out of control subjecting his body to large amounts of gravitational forces. What happened next would've killed a normal person but something triggered inside his body making him more resistant to the forces that were ravaging him until the machines arm ripped free launching the simulator's seat and occupant through the building and off into the distance crashing into a Deuce and a Half. Miraculously he survived but had withstood serious injuries. His survival was a miracle at best and he was eventually discharged from service awaiting to be sent home. During his stay at the base hospital is when he was contacted by an agent from Novastar offering him the opportunity of a life time.

-Personal Info-
Birth Name: Maxwell Evans
Nova Name: None
Identity: Public
Nick Names: None
Aliases: Max Kane
Occupation: Co-Owner of Bad Daddy's BBQ Bar & Grill, Student
Legal Status: American citizen with no criminal record.
Marital Status: Single
Known Relatives: 'Bad Daddy' Kane
Group Affiliation: Novastar Industries

-Physical Traits-
Age (apparent age): 25
Gender: Male
Ethnic Background: Caucasian
Nationality: American
Height: 6'1”
Weight: 191lbs.
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Black
Handedness: Left
General Appearance: Max is a handsome guy who usually looks like he just rolled out of bed and threw something on. He doesn't shave often, just using a set of clippers to keep the stubble from becoming a beard. His dress is casual, even when formality requires something more and he's usually the one guy in the room whose hands are in his tuxedo pocket as he swaggers about like a social chameleon.

-Powers, Skills, and Personality-
Known Powers: His core ability is creating and manipulating fire and heat. Expounding upon that core ability has allowed him to generate waves of heat to disorient targets, focus the heat into an attack to breech defenses, and swath himself in flame. Although not related to his ability to control flame, Max can absorb energy and not just flame.

Strength Level: Max possesses the strength of a baseline who engages in intensive regular exercise.

Abilities/Special Skills: Mr. Kane is an accomplished Oceanographer who is currently working his Masters Degree in the field. Aside from Oceanography, Max is an incredibly accomplished chef despite spending no time in any sort of culinary school.

Personality: Max is a great guy who is rarely seen without a smile on his face. Despite being a Nova he considers himself an 'average' guy. Polite and helpful, he genuinely wants to see others succeed and is willing to help as much as possible to help them do so.

,,

While a Hedonist as heart, Max understands that if the world is allowed to get any worse then there won't be any good times to be had by anyone. He dedicates his time between enjoying his life and doing what he can to research and contain the Q-Zones.

Interests: He's fond of enjoying Florida's beaches and spends his spare time surfing, swimming and playing volley ball. His nights are spent working/hanging out at Bad Daddy's BBQ where there is always a party going on.

Background: Max Kane was born Maxwell Evans. His history is not hard to look up on the OpNet. Born to an upper middle class family the Evan's were all killed on S-Day when a tsunami washed ashore in Miami carrying with it a malaise of quantum infused water. Most were washed away out into the ocean, the rest? Well, no one likes to think about the rest.

,,

Max lost his mother, father, sister and brother that day. He was farther north, away from the storm, studying at the Oceanographic Coastal Center at Port St. Lucie. After the devastation and the loss of his family Max took a year of from school and stayed with a long time family friend 'Bad Daddy' Kane, a large Haitian man who'd known his father for years and helped him with numerous business ventures.

,,

Miami, after the storm, was left largely untouched aside from severe property damage in many places, especially the coastline. In May, 2010, with the loss of his family and estate, he used the life insurance money to lay the foundation for a business that too off in ways he'd never imagined.

,,

It had always been his 'Uncle' Kane's dream to own a bar and grill on one of Miami's famous piers. With Real Estate at an all time low after the tragedy Max saw the opportunity to purchase such a place and begin renovations. Bad Daddy's BBQ was presented to his 'Uncle' as a birthday gift and Bad Daddy Kane insisted the kid go in on business with him to help return some of the investment. Four years later Bad Daddy's BBQ Bar and Grill is one of the premier hotspots on the Miami strip, enough so that they've had to renovate twice in four years to make the place larger. Bad Daddy's BBQ has gained enough acclaim that it's turned two rather well-to-do gentleman who were just looking to follow a dream into local celebrities.

,,

Max's powers began to manifest about two years ago but there was no big show involved. Gradually over the course of several weeks he found himself more capable physically and mentally. His production of fire and ability to manipulate it is something he is slowly learning over time with practice and patience.

Name: Elizabeth Chang

,,

Age: 25

,,

Job Description: Novastorm Security for the past 2 years, 7 months

,,

Description: Black-haired and blue-eyed, Elizabeth's face is typically set in a determined frown that rapidly shifts into a glare should anyone start badmouthing Novastorm or it's founder Dr. Calvin Aziz. She moves with the rapid grace of a Nova Swift that makes her slender 5'4 frame seem far more threatening than she should be, a match to the array of no nonsense configurations for her eufiber. More often than not, she keeps a gun on her person as quietly eager to avoid active power use to subdue threats as she is to keep her own counsel unless directly asked by a superior.

,,

Abilities: A millitary-trained scout and infiltrator, Elizabeth Chang is a Nova with faster than human reflexes and an inhuman endurance. She has another trick that she deploys away from the prying eyes of civilians when things turn serious: a 100-foot long mantis-snake form capable of matching all but the most dangerous Zone spawn pound for pound and talon for talon.

,,

Background: Elizabeth doesn't tell her coworkers about her past and maintains the same reluctance to share outside the workplace. She doesn't have a lot of history on the internet and other media also, but there are things that have made it out and been confirmed. She's ex-military, zealously ruthless when it comes to protecting the property and employees of Novastorm, born and raised somewhere in California, and gets even more quiet and dour around September 25th every year. Dr. Calvin Aziz is the only person at Novastorm to get a laugh out Elizabeth, although catching her after a particularly good Quantum Zone expedition and asking her about her home garden will earn the asker a smile and a few minutes gushing before the walls of stoic professionalism come back up.

Sakurako Hino

Engineering Research and Development Division

Novastorm Technologies

 

Sakurako's pre-eruption life was rather sedate, most of her life with her nose stuck in a book. Shorter than her classmates she was made fun of and generally was looked at as the "kid". As such she found it hard to socialize with others. This avoidance by staying in the confines of a library worked to her advantage. She was naturally bright, and took to the subjects she looked into with gusto. Her grades showed it, and she ended up by the time she was a Freshman in High School in Hawaii as a shoe-in for any Scholarship she could get her hands on.

 

Then a few curious twists of fate completely changed the course of her life, and all from a reward her parents gave her.

 

Sakurako was in the Sea Scouts and on her 15th Birthday which fell on March 30th her troop had made arrangements around then to sail along the gulf coast. They started in Galveston and decided for a day or two to head out into the Gulf of Mexico to do some fishing before heading back into view of the Gulf Coast to begin their summer trip. As the second day approached the world's fate turned on a dime as S-Day occurred.

 

Sakurako suddenly fell ill with a headache and nausea and was sleeping in her cabin when a sudden storm hit, right as the wave of quantum had passed by. The yacht her troop was on was tossed about and Sakurako hit her head on one of the dressers in her cabin and everything went dark in her world.

 

A little time later she came to, wiping blood from her nose and suddenly feeling strange. She was also inside a upside-down quarters and as she struggled about she discovered the yacht had capsized and was slowly taking on water. She looked around where she could but couldn't find any signs of anyone else on board.

 

Then a crazy thought crossed her mind as she went back into her quarters to think of a escape plan. "Cut your way out!"

 

She grabbed the maps of the trip, some spare books, a distress tranciever, and her life vest and stood where she knew the hull was easy to get to, and in one massive burst of razor-sharp paper she burst through the bottom of the hull. Water crashed through... she wasn't on the surface, she was trapped under some 150 feet of water!

 

Shooting up and breaking the surface, she gasped for air under a moonlit night, her beacon blinking. A day later a coast guard ship spotted her yellow life vest when tracking her distress beacon.

 

Over the next few days, Sakurako soaked in the news of what happened in the world and her stomach sank. Where she lived, near Pearl Harbor on Oahu in Hawaii had become a war-zone as mutants from what would be called a "Zone" started screaming out like some sort of horror movie from Ford Island,  What at one time was a war memorial turned into a battlefield for the island's police and the US Navy.

 

She tried calling her family but communication to the area her family lived was cut off. In fact the residential district she lived in was hit in one severe attack, with multiple casualties, some unidentifiable. The area around Ford Island was evacuated and anyone who was away from the island was ordered not to return, all civilians were evacuated to the other islands in the Hawaii chain.

 

Her Parents were declared dead when a couple unidentifiable bodies were found in a burned-out sub-compact with only a couple of IDs were found some 6 months later.

 

Sakurako was stuck in Houston, no real way to head back, and no family to turn to on the mainland. That was when Novastar came in. Sakurako was hopping from job to job when she had turned 16, mostly doing odd mechanic jobs showing off her keen skill as a mechanic, but also her sudden understanding of technology was not lost on them when she applied for a entry-level position on a page only a Nova of her skill could access.

 

As she was still under-age at the time, Novastorm arranged her to have a mentor, a Professor by the name of James Calloway who was a expert in Engineering, who had also erupted on S-Day, who could teach the newly minted nova a thing or two. That and to look after her until she was 18. In the process she started to settle into her new position in the company.

 

When she turned 18, with her accomplishments well known within the walls of the corporation, she was promoted to Assistant Director of the Engineering, Research, and Development Division in Novastorm. Now 20, she knows her ambitions can't stop there. There is a bunch that humanity doesn't know about the zones, and mankind needs to be able to defend itself against threats from the Zones.

 

Appearance

If there is one thing that can be said about Sakurako's fashion sense, it is that it is non-existant. She dresses to her whims, in ways her colleagues call "cartoonish". While it doesn't get in the way of her duties or what's she's doing she does get a few looks for her eccentricities. Sakurako herself is a as different as her "style" with shocking pink hair and purple eyes. She's short, at 4'11" although now she loves being underestimated, and plays this to her advantage, although she's not known to be more cunning than anyone else, she sees it as a logical tactic.

 

Personality

Her personality is not as chaotic as her dress. She is a caring, loving girl who loves any chance she can get not only to prove her worth, but also to get any chance she can to test her latest inventions or designs in the field. Her filter is a bit busted though and sometimes acts like her outward appearance, not her actual maturity.

,,

Identity: Sonja, S3, Valkyrie

Occupation: NovaStorm Agent, Businesswoman, Fashion Designer, Actress, Model, former Athlete

Legal Status: American and Icelandic Citizen with no criminal convictions

Allegiance(s): Her family, Ambrosia, NovaStorm

Eruption: April 1st, 2009

Physical Traits

Height: 7'7'' (formerly 6'2'')

Weight: 363 lbs

D.O.B: February 14th, 1988

Age (apparent age): 26

Gender: Female

Ethnic Background: Scandinavian and Iranian

Nationality (place of origin): American

Eye Color: Amethyst

Hair Color: Platinum Blond with Silver Highlights

Handedness: Left

Appearance: Sonja is a towering woman with a tautly curvaceous, powerful, well muscled figure, incredibly long, strong legs, and firm ass. Her heart-shaped face is absolutely stunning; large majestic, amethyst eyes, pearly teeth, enviously sculpted cheekbones, and lush, naturally red lips perfectly framed by a thick, silky mass of platinum blond hair with silver highlights that falls well past her broad shoulders. Her creamy, tanned skin is flawless and her very abundant, yet firm, breasts are spectacular, emphasized by her tight, slender waist and firm abs.

She moves with preternatural smoothness and fluidity despite her size. Her voice is a rich, sensual alto. Prefers glamorously casual and athletic styles of clothing, though she does dress up more formally often enough, always of the best quality and always tailored - she has the contacts and it's impossible for something to fit her stature and figure otherwise.

Her size, beauty, and obvious strength combine to give her a daunting presence.

Powers, Skills, and Personality:

Known Powers: Sonja has greatly enhanced physical attributes, strong enough to lift over 25 tons and resilient enough to resist most forms of small arms fire. Despite her considerable size, she is also inhumanly agile and swift, having been clocked at over 2000kph.

Abilities/Special Skills: Sonja is known as one of the greatest tennis players of all time, with dozens of records to her name, including being the only to have completed a true Super Slam. Most believe she would have become the most decorated tennis player of all time, if her eruption hadn't curtailed her career.

,,

She is (or was) also a world renowned supermodel, combining the glamorous elegance and sensuality of the classical fashion model with the vigorous health of an athlete and a hometown appeal. Initially considered a plus-sized model, Sonja's athletic success and numerous and sizable endorsements and public popularity enabled her to vanguard a new breed of fashion model to counter the size 0 waifs typically preferred for runway models.

,,

After Karl Lagerfeld said Heidi Klum was "no runway model. She is simply too heavy and has too big a bust." Klum dubbed the new healthier type of fashion model Ubermodels and added her own clout to their rise. Still a minority, more variety in body types are used now for Fashion and Runway modelling, aided in part by public backlash against too thin models.

,,

Of course, after her eruption, Sonja's modelling career has taken a drastic turn.

,,

Sonja has a surprising, savvy business sense, parlaying her athletic and modeling success into a growing empire branching out into a number of endeavors.

,,

Personality: A spirited, competitive woman, very focused and goal oriented, with an iron will to succeed. Strives hard for what she wants and never concedes defeat. Known to have a bit of a temper she fights hard to control. Beautiful, strong, rich, famous and well aware of it, Sonja delights in it, but isn't arrogant or condescending about it and is remarkably down to earth when she isn't focused on a goal. Though she hides it well, she is quite desperate to find any news about the condition of her family lost in the Zones - their loss feels like a personal failure of hers.

Background: Born to an Iranian-American Banker father and an Icelandic Olympic Alpine-Skier mother, Sonja was a fortunate girl, the eldest of three daughters, growing up in luxury in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. From an early age she was both an athletic tomboy and a pretty, fashion-conscious girly-girl. Not content to get by on inherited wealth, Sonja had an iron will to succeed on her own merits.

,,

The Bahaars sent their spirited, eldest daughter to various camps and sports until one grabbed her interest and clicked. It turned out to be tennis, at which Sonja soon proved to be a prodigy. Training and developing as a player at the prestigious Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Florida with tireless enthusiasm and relentless drive, Sonja completed a Juniors Grand Slam at the age of 13, and her first Major title at 15, at Wimbledon.

,,

It seemed like she was the epitome of the pretty blonde tennis players Russia had been putting out for years - many of whom Sonja had trained with at the Bollettieri Academy - and which she soon proved, becoming the youngest woman to be ranked number one and at 16, being the first person, male or female, to complete a Super Slam (winning all Four Majors, the WTA Tour Championship and the gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics).

,,

Nike offered her a substantial endorsement deal on the spot - Sonja countered with a tiered structure that started off lower and rose with the number of consecutive Grand Slam title wins... and proceed to go on the longest winning streak recorded, greatly increasing the value of her endorsement deal. She began dating Chris Evans after meeting him at the premiere to Fantastic Four and also led the way for equalizing payouts between men and women for winnings.

,,

While Sonja dominated the Tennis rankings, she continued to pursue modeling at the same time, despite the protests of her coaches and modeling executives and fashion designers. Her coaches said it was a distraction from her game and the executives and designers claimed she was too well-endowed and heavy for any elite fashion work, despite her exotic colouring and otherwise stunning features, but Sonja persisted.

,,

At first work was minimal, mostly as what was considered a plus-size model, but as she continued to win in tennis and garnered more exposure and popularity, the tide of opinion began to turn and she got more and better paying modeling work, mostly bikini and sportswear to start, then others. At 18, she was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, was the face for Guess Jeans, along with a number of other product lines, and was tapped by Nike to design a sportswear and athletics apparel line - 'SX3 by Nike' - and finally came out of the closet. Despite her fears, her father supported her completely and even her younger sister Oneca was grudgingly proud of her.

,,

At 19, Sonja was named a Victoria's Secret Angel and the endorsements came tumbling in. Sonja started her own clothing lines - Bahaar Bazaar and Seven-Seven. With careful timing and the success of Seven-Seven - her sleepwear and underwear line - Sonja finally convinced VS to stop vanity sizing their bras and expand their range of sizes. With VS making the shift, the rest of industry did as well. After that, getting consistency in sizing across the board was almost easy. Cup sizes expanded, but busts stayed the same size and were better supported.

,,

At 21, Sonja was on top of the world. She was the highest earning athlete and model of the year - edging out Tiger Woods - Forbes named her one of the most powerful celebrities in the world for the third straight year. She was dating Amber Heard and had appeared in a three episode arc on The L Word, along with a few other small cameo appearances elsewhere. She began making small but necessary inroads bettering the working conditions of workers in Bangladesh and other sweatshops overseas, using her influence with Nike, Victoria's Secret, her own product lines and other designers.

,,

And rather than just sitting on the wealth she had earned or wasting it away, Sonja had been looking around for investment opportunities, sometimes taking risks, sometimes a safe bet, sometimes just because it looked like a fun or interesting idea. NovaStorm, then a small concern exploring alternative and cleaner energy production options attracted her interest with ideas for cleaner nuclear power that could potentially lead tocold fusion.

,,

Then the Surge struck.

,,

Sonja was on the catwalk for a Fashion Show in Paris, before preparing for the French Open at Roland Garros. As the world was engulfed with radiant quantum energy, so was Sonja, growing taller and stronger all the while. When the light faded away, Sonja remained, now a giant and muscular amazon of a woman, standing closer to eight than seven feet tall. She was nude on the catwalk, the clothing she had been modeling busting from her massive frame and the event had been filmed in its entirety.

,,

The world had changed and she had changed with it.

,,

Her own drastic changes were almost forgotten when she found out what had happened to New York City - where her sister Oneca was attending University - and Los Angeles - where her parents and youngest sister Saja lived. They appeared to be lost or twisted by the Zones, but Sonja wasn't ready to give up on them yet. Though with her change, Amber Heard gave up on her.

,,

At first dismayed at her new size, Sonja began to enjoy her new strength and power over time, especially because it gave her the opportunity to explore the Zones. Being on site for two monstrous outbreaks from the Zones, she really appreciated her size and strength, being better able to protect herself and others. NovaStorm's interest in the Zones and the Surge was an even greater boon, giving her a support system to explore the Zones and search for her family, and she commissioned them to make her a sword and bow sized for her stature and able to withstand the full impact of her strength.

,,

In the five years since the Surge, Sonja has been working for NovaStorm's interests - and her own - with the goal being to find any sign or news of her family in the LA and NYC Zones. At the same time, she has been learning to live in a world that is now too small for her.

,,

Her tennis career is finished. The French Open had been cancelled following the Surge but Wimbledon refused to be deterred. After competing there - there being no official rule to disqualify her - and not losing a single point, Sonja voluntarily retired from the sport. She had been the first and highest profile Nova athlete to compete in an professional capacity, and after her retirement, rules were rewritten baring Novas from competing in professional leagues against non-novas. And of course, her modeling career has drastically turned, generally towards smaller and niche sectors, though she still does promotional work for all her own product lines.

,,

And new opportunities have arisen as she looks in other directions. She was the principal investor in a new garment factory in Bangladesh, when the current sweatshop model sickened her. She payed better wages and providing better working conditions than current factories, including subsidized housing and daycare for children, making her popular with the workers, if not other owners.

,,

At first, she produced only her own line of products and barely broke even but following a series of drastic and terrible incidents on other factories, including one collapse that caused over a thousand deaths, Sonja found more business coming her way. She greatly expanded her operation and other factories in Bangladesh started following suit, leading to a boom economy thanks to better compensated workers in the industry.

,,

Sonja also appeared in an episode of Marvel's Agents of Shield in 2013, followed by being cast in the lead role of She-Hulk. It was a perfect casting choice, since shortly after the Surge, artists for Marvel had altered Jennifer Walter's appearance to more closely resemble Sonja Bahaar, much as had been done with Nick Fury and Samuel L. Jackson.

,,

And finally, for most of the last year, Sonja has been in a steady relationship with another Nova and another Amber, Amber Mane, professionally known as Ambrosia. Sonja first met Ambrosia just over two years ago when she was hired to take promotion shots of Sonja for the Seven-Seven line. The black-and-white stills were very well received and the had kept in touch since, eventually leading to a closer relationship. Now, they make a very striking - if disparate - couple, considering one stands 7'7'' and the other 5' even. But they don't care, they fit together well enough.

Genevieve Vala (nee Roumain)
Date of Eruption: February 15, 2014

Background:

Ricardo Vala was born in the favela slums of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Gabriel Vala, a factory worker, and Genevieve Roumain, a Haitian immigrant and nurse. As a child Ricardo spent his days playing Capoeira and parkouring around the dense urban jungle of the favelas. At the age of 12 his father was killed in a manufacturing plant accident, but the corrupt executives of the company ensured that they were not held liable, leaving Genevieve to provide for herself and her son on a meager salary. Filled with aimless anger, Ricardo began getting into fights, and was soon courted by older boys with links to the local cartel. He was staring down the barrel of a life of crime, and would have taken a far more sinister turn were it not for Rickson Gracie and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

One evening when he was 14, Ricardo was running from some rival gang members when he was cornered and unable to escape. He fought like a wounded jaguar but in the end it was not enough. Rickson, who had been returning home from the market came across the scene, defeated the attackers single-handedly, and returned the boy home where his mother could nurse him back to health. The elder Gracie took a special interest in Ricardo, and over several visits convinced him to join his school, the prestigious Gracie Academy.

Over many years, his mentor taught him to harness his anger and violence, and channel it into a match...and then let it go and shake hands when the contest was over. He also demanded that he attend school, and was prohibited from training or sparring if he did not keep his marks high. Rico obeyed, trained hard, and became even more physically imposing and skilled, earning himself the nickname El Pantera, "The Panther." By the age of 21 he had worked his way up through the ranks of many other fighters to land a spot on the card for UFC Fight Night: Machida vs Mousasi held in Jaragua do Sol on February 15th, 2014 which was broadcast on Fox News 1, marking Ricardo's first international debut. He was to face Maximo Blanco, a Venezuelan martial artist in the featherweight class.

In the first round, Blanco dominated, taking advantage of Ricardo's inexperience with such a massive venue and event. In the second round however he came back hard, taking Gracie's advice to "forget about the crowd, tune out the noise, it's just you and him." In the third round, Maximo dropped Ricardo with an unintentional kick to the groin. He'd lose a point for it from the judges, but it wouldn't matter. When the clock restarted, Maximo shot for Rico's legs, managing to ground and pound him (which did little to phase the steel-jawed brazillian). The crowd was on it's feet when Vala managed to flip out from under Blanco, mounting his back and going for a rear naked choke hold. However, the Venezuelan was older, more experienced, and had a slight edge in technique. He reversed the reversal and it was suddenly Vala who felt the pressure on his jugular, cutting off the flow of blood to his brain. He could not fight the inevitability of unconsciousness as control of his limbs left him. "I'm going to lose, and everyone is going to see" was the last thought before he slipped under. Then he erupted.

The force of the explosion was enough to level the cage, and knock the referee and his opponent more than a dozen yards into the arena. Referee Sousa was knocked through a water table, which slowed his momentum enough that he and those he careened into suffered only minor injuries. Maximo Blanco however was knocked into a barricade at such an angle that it broke his lumbar spine, rendering him paralyzed from the waist down. Ricardo was immobilized from shock and just stood there in the rubble while the audience screamed and fled in terror, and the policia present ran towards him, with sidearms drawn.

Dr. Calvin was made aware of the situation almost as soon as it happened, and immediately 'gated' to the arena with his standby team. After talking Ricardo out of his shock, getting the police to lower their weapons, and coaching the nascent nova on how to power down, moxinoquantamine was administered, though gas had to be used as the hypospray was unable to penetrate Rico's now quantum- hardened flesh. They were then escorted by military troops to the nearest properly equipped hospital where Dr. Calvin and his team were allowed to examine and test Ricardo, while Novastar's legal team dealt with the government.

After six days, the Novastar lawyers were able to convince the Brazilian government to drop the charges of attempted manslaughter and allow him to leave the country in Novastar's capable hands. He has lived at the main compound ever since, nearly a month and a half now, and has just finished a complete battery of exercises and tests to understand his powers, while teaching him to control them. It's been a trying time for Rico. In addition to the exhaustive examinations, the media has been on fire, with the clip of his eruption currently at 150 million views. He's already had a few invitations to fledgling nova fight clubs, and his inbox and facebook have filled up with all manner of offers, from the standard commercial advertising contracts, to interview requests, to women wanting to pay him for his sperm. A fan petition has gone viral attempting to get Diney-Marvel to cast him in their upcoming straight-to-Netflix series "Luke Cage" (and Disney is seriously considering the idea). It's all more than a bit insane, so Ricardo has sequestered himself within Novastar's walls, under the guidance and support of Dr. Aziz, and the other novas. He Skype's home to his mentor and his mother every day, and is looking forward to their visit now that he has been cleared as safe and in control by the Novastar team.

Ricardo was floored, beside himself, over what he had done. His career in mixed martial arts was over, even if he was found innocent of wrongdoing. When Aziz offered him a place at Novastar, there was little he could do but accept. However, when told of his new extremely lucrative salary, Vala blanched, and insisted that the lion's share of his income go to Maximo and his family, including setting up college trust funds for his two daughters. Dr. Aziz took it a step further, suggesting that if that was Ricardo's wish, then he would set up a charitable foundation under the Novastar banner, in order to research technologies that might one day restore Blanco's use of his legs. Ricardo agreed, christening it 'The Maximo Foundation."

Appearance and Personality:

While not incredibly tall, Ricardo is built. His physique and symmetry make him better looking than average, though a bit too weathered and rugged to be considered "beautiful." Calvin Klein has been calling. One of his few vices (which include fighting, and formerly alcohol, the latter of which no longer has any effect), Ricardo is a style-whore. Even when he was dirt-poor, he managed to dress well. He has an urban sensibility infused with capoeira and breakdancing motifs. After becoming acquainted with the character of Luke Cage via the internet petition, he quickly took a liking to the character, and started wearing an old-school hip-hop style chrome belt-buckle with 'RICO' spelled out in the center. He seems to have a fresh new pair of kicks each time you see him, and always wears sleek, almost goggle-like shades when in public.


In terms of demeanor, Ricardo straddles two poles. Deep down he is a kind person, who wants to help others, but this is encased behind protective anger. Through his tutelage under the Gracie family, he has learned a modicum of self-control, and is generally upbeat, if not a bit reserved. When threatened, or challenged however, he can "get hot." Most of the time he has enough presence of mind to cool down, but deep down he longs to cut loose. He feels terrible about the hurt he caused during his eruption, and is reluctant to use his powers...in part because he can already tell he is in love with them. It is intoxicating to be nigh invulnerable, which feels all the more shameful since it came at the crippling expense of another.

With his love for mixed martial arts now denied to him, he has no way to release his aggression when it gets pent up, which has lead Dr. Aziz to offer him an official position on his new expeditionary team. The Doc phrased it as a "bodyguarding" position. The team would need some muscle, and there was no one better qualified. He would be able to use his new power, his new life, to find new meaning and a purpose past his passion...as well as getting an opportunity to kick some ass in a constructive way for humanity.

As much as he is inwardly embracing what he can do, and the idea of being (in his mind) a badass superhero, he also carries some deeper insecurities. While a powerhouse by all accounts, he is in fact incredibly intimidated by the more mentally and socially gifted of his peers. While by no means unintelligent, he is well aware that he was and is, of quite average intelligence. He has managed to compensate by developing a greater charm and wit, but he still feels woefully shy, and truth be told, inadequate around them. He's only just beginning to come out of his shell.

Nova Capabilities:

Before his eruption, Ricardo was already a professional level athlete, acrobat, and fighter. His eruption in the ring heightened those talents and he is now among the very most skilled martial artists in the world, baseline or nova. He now has modest levels of superhuman strength (but see below), while his accelerated nervous system is second only to his preturnatural fortitude, making him a demigod of might and prowess.

However, the main thrust of his active power seems to revolve around what has been classified as an incredibly powerful but somewhat crude telekinesis. Ricardo can affect any and all matter or energy around him in gross ways, manifesting as a field around his body. While invisible to all but the quantum-eye, this field when active generates a very low frequency "hum" that tends to pulse and shift harmonics as he moves and applies his power. At it's base level, this field augments his already godlike resiliency to truly frightening levels, enabling him to block even armor piercing tank sabot rounds, and molten copper filled rocket-propelled grenades with his bare hands, suffering nary a scratch.

Ricardo has show that he can manipulate this field in various ways, and it was quickly learned that when using his prodigious strength, he never actually touches things, but lifts them with this field that extends about a half-inch in front of his skin. When he picks up or moves something truly massive, the field seems to envelop the object, keeping it intact even if would normally crumple under it's own weight with such a seemingly small fulcrum point.

In addition he can "charge" the field with an expulsive directional force. He has managed a relatively weak (by nova standards) passive application of this ability that throws back anything that touches him, leading to his recent christening of "Ricochet" by a comic-book nerd of a lab tech. However, when he focuses this field into a strike, he can generate truly explosive impacts. On a more subtle level, he has shown a limited ability to "project" his field through these strikes, in order to hit targets at close range, and has also found the field incredibly useful for using "soft fist" techniques; the invisible lines of force blocking, or redirecting attacks in the direction of his choosing.

While has yet to move objects at a distance, he has recently figured out how to fly. Although far from the fastest of flying novas, his unique method of creating thrust directly allows him unparalleled mobility. He can stop on a dime, make hard turns of any degree including right angles and full reversal of direction with no loss of momentum. Needless to say, he is ecstatic with this discovery and can't wait to find new applications for his gift.

One strange side-effect of his abilities or perhaps quantum signature, is that any eufiber that he attunes to himself dies and falls off within a matter of hours. Fortunately however this seems limited to that engineered substance; he is fully capable of attuning anything he is wearing or holding without harm, and has even learned how to envelop his field around another person while touching them, extending it's protection to them as well.

Finally, as his telekinetic potential seems to be an extension of his will, Dr. Calvin's team has found his neural pathways to be slightly "hardened" as well, giving him a rudimentary level of protection against the so-called "psychic" powers of certain novas.

,,

Update:

,,

Further study has yielded a deeper understanding of Ricardo's quantum manifestation. We have been able to determine that even his preternatural resiliency stems from his telekinetic power. The atomic forces holding his atoms, molecules, and tissues together are many times of magnitude greater than should be possible. In essence, the force or energy that would normally rip his molecules apart is unable to overcome his own ability to "hold himself together," seemingly through raw force of will. In other words, while his skin, bone, muscle, and other tissues seem to be like any other human's, and aren't detectably denser or heavier than usual for an athletic specimen, he is for all practical purposes, armored. While it would be conceivably possible to develop armor piercing weaponry that could penetrate his skin, with the reinforcement of his personal shield it is likely that nothing short of an orbital kinetic strike would be able to cause him harm, and even then it would not be for certain.

,,

As to his ability to exert force, our study of his flight has also inreased our understanding. Plainly put, Ricardo somehow "breaks" our understanding of physics. For every force there is an equal and opposing force. Newton's third law of motion. Not so with Ricardo. He is able to effectively create "one way force," meaning that rather than fly by generating thrust, he "picks himself up" and moves his atoms in the direction his desires, directly, with no recoil or other opposing force. Of course, the laws of Newtonian physics are broken regularly by the Quantum-fueled novas, but each one of them gives us more knowledge into how this Quantum operates.

Notes
Ricardo has Resources of 4 that represent his contract with Novastar, and his upcoming film and advertising contracts. However his Debt flaw represents the money he gives to Maximo and his family, including college funds for his children, as well as the charitable foundation that has been set up in his name. Because of these obligations, he actually lives at the modest level of Resources 2, which is frankly where he feels more comfortable anyway.

OOC: Yes, I know the bottom picture is thinner than I describe below. Pretend she's a bit fuller-figured, please. It's the concept of this picture that I love for Serena. :D

Serena is an absolutely stunning woman - the height of nova beauty. She has full lips, brown hair and brown eyes, though they often take on an golden amber hue in the light. She's not short for a woman, but not terribly tall either, having remained the same height she was pre-Surge. She's also not a petite woman, she has broader shoulders and a more statuesque frame than hearkens back to an older age of Hollywood stars, though she's toned and in shape. But she rocks it, and laughs her ass off at people who dare mention her size as a negative. Of course, almost no one does - Serena's sheer gorgeousness, along with other fuller-figured novas like Sonja Bahaar, have single-handedly helped turn the tide of beauty acceptance in a more positive, diverse direction, and it's well known that pre-Surge, Serena was a lovely but very overweight young woman who views her new appearance and improved health as an undeserved blessing.


Powers, Skills, and Personality:


Known Powers/Abilities/Special Skills:

Serena obvious nova enhancements are her looks and her talent - she's incredibly stunning, and though she still resembles the woman she was pre-Surge, it's obvious that it had a drastic impact on her appearance. She's also very graceful, and admits that she wasn't nearly so much so in her pre-Nova days. She can change her appearance in subtle ways - she's been seen with a different hair color from one day to the next, tanned skin to match one outfit and then paler skin the next, and occasionally she's been known to have switched to a different, vibrant eye color.. usually for the purpose of matching an outfit. It could be contacts, but given her ability to alter her appearance in other ways, it's assumed that it's part of her powers.

She has an amazing voice and musical abilities now, something that she's never made any bones about being a benefit of her eruption. Though she loved music and singing beforehand, she did it purely recreationally, hadn't played an instrument in several years, and claims to have only been moderately decent until her gift.

She also possesses the ability to fly, and has developed a flair for linguistics.

Personality:

Serena is an outgoing, gregarious woman with a zest for life. She believes in making the most of her opportunities, and has thrown herself into her new lifestyle whole-heartedly. But with that comes a deep sense of responsibility. Serena may be living it up these days, performing for packed crowds and arenas and living the international high life, but she feels a strong obligation to help her fellow man. She's also deeply committed to family and friends, and will drop almost anything if someone she cares about truly needs her.

Background:

Serena was living a perfectly normal life in Kansas City, Missouri when the Surge hit. Prior to her new life as a Nova, she was living a fairly pleasant, perfectly average life. She was working part-time in a cubicle farm as a customer service representative for a major bank, and spent her days as an Interior Design student at a local community college. She had just broken up with her boyfriend, spent most of her time with close friends and family, and was a bit of a social butterfly. She had always been a very outgoing person, even as a child. But when the Surge hit, her lifelong social and artistic inclinations developed into something larger entirely.

Serena erupted with two of her closest friends at the same time during the Surge - Elizabeth Perot and Kaitlyn Weaver. Like her two friends, the Surge enhanced Rena's natural abilities in a profound way. Before she was pretty, friendly, and outgoing - now she was stunning, the girl everyone wanted to know, and the life of every party. A lifetime of dabbling in music, art, and acting became a gift for performance that turned her into an almost overnight sensation - mostly vocal and instrumental (with a preference for the violin and the piano) so far, though rumors have been flying for the past few months that she'll be announcing an acting debut any day now, and she hasn't done anything to dissuade the rumors.

Serena is also a well-known philanthropist and community activist. Her "pet causes" (as some of her VERY few critics call it - hey, everyone has some) are primarily focused on helping the suppressed or abused - things like advancing women's rights (especially in very patriarchal places where women are still treated as second-class citizens), aiding children suffering from hunger or abuse, environmental causes, and discrimination (LGBT, racial, baseline, or otherwise). She supports programs that advocate healthy lifestyles and activity, especially for low-income youth, as well as anti-bullying campaigns. She also has a soft spot for anything related to her home city, Kansas City, and is a frequent visitor. She returns to visit her family - she has a mother whom she supports entirely, and extended family as well that she's quite generous to, though their needs are simple. Serena also uses her visits to KC to speak at community events, holds charity performances to raise money for some of her favorite community charities, and has personally funded several community revitalization projects to help invigorate blighted neighborhoods or restore crumbling historical architecture.

Along with the other two KC's Angels (a play off of Charlie's Angels, as the girls have come to be known), she is an employee of Novastorm, having been approached by them based on her friends' recommendation. To the general public, she is one of the dominant faces of Novastorm's public relations and humanitarian efforts department. She started off as a headhunter and recruitment specialist for NovaStorm (and still occasionally serves that purpose, mostly when Aziz requests her specifically), but now carries the title "Public Relations and Humanitarian Aid Specialist". Many of her charity ventures are directly linked with new Novastorm tech and how it can improve the lives of people who are suffering. Most people assume she works with NovaStorm because is offers her the best platform to aid the needy, although she does some humanitarian work outside the company's purview when she sees the need. In the early days she traveled to third-world countries, speaking with everyone from political ambassadors to tribal chieftains, convincing them that the new medications and technologies were going to help improve their lives, and at the same time, defending those cultures from unwanted incursion into their lifestyles. She respectfully helped places maintain their traditions and ways of life when so desired, and vehemently defended their right to do so, earning their trust and gratitude - even as she brought them doctors and scientists and volunteers to help them improve their way of life.

Important People:

Camille McCoy: Serena's single mother. She worked hard her entirely life to give Serena the kind of benefits she never had growing up poor. Rena and her mother still didn't have a lot of money during Rena's childhood, but she didn't realize it till she was older. Camille splits her time between living a low-key life in KC, traveling with her sisters, visiting her other children out-of-state, and traveling with her daughter to watch her performances or visit parts of the world Rena wants them to experience together. She's been photographed by the media often while out with Serena doing casual things like shopping or eating out, though she's only made a few appearances on the red carpet with her daughter, during some of her earlier or most important performances. She seems a bit camera shy. She calls her daughter often - sometimes too often, though Rena doesn't mind too much - always cautious about where she's at and what she's doing, wanting to make sure she's okay. She's a worrier.

Keith and Lila Soleil: Serena's father and stepmother. Keith is an ex-cop and an ex-construction worker, a real blue-collar type of guy. Serena wasn't raised with him, and didn't really get to know him till she was a teenager. She has developed a close relationship with him since then, however, and he and his wife are occasionally seen at events where Rena is performing, and have made a red carpet appearance or two with her as well. They live quietly in a more rural area of Missouri, not too far from Kansas City.

Alicia Hoyt: Serena's personal assistant. She travels almost everywhere with Serena, managing her busy schedule and helping organize all the sometimes overwhelming aspects of her glamours new lifestyle. Whether it's blocking out Rena's schedule, hiring drivers and making hotel arrangements, or doing some emergency shopping, Alicia's got it covered - and she's paid well for it, too.

Jessica Sandhu: Serena's personal stylist. She doesn't travel everywhere with Serena, because as glamorous as Serena likes to be, she also tries to keep it low-key when it's not work-related. She knows how to put on her own makeup just fine, thank you very much, and often goes without if it's not a professional situation. Jessica is there for business - she accompanies Rena when she's on tour, and flies out when she needs to for non-tour performances or speaking events. She is, however, on call most of the time, in case something comes up and Serena needs her.

Other relations: Serena does her best to keep details about her other relatives out of the public gossip mill, and does an incredible job of convincing reporters to respect her family's privacy. It's known that she has several half-siblings, as well as a fairly large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. But she keeps their names quiet, and the media respectfully obliges, since she assures them that all her relatives live quiet, fairly uneventful lives out of the public spotlight.

Eruption: April 1, 2009 (Erupted during the Surge)

 

Description/Personality: Carol is petite, well muscled and curvy. She is unmistakably an athlete.  Her hair is signature red with a colored blonde streak, sometimes the streak is recolored to a different shade or to an  altogether different color, seldom is the streak removed. Until 2014 she wore her hair long usually to the middle of the back. Since her acquirement of a Eufibr Suit she has worn it short. She has  two concealable tattoos (lower back, ankle) and 19 piercings. Personalty wise while she can come off as cold in some settings, she is actually a warm and out going person. Her sense of humor isn't the best and she tends to lose interest in small talk but becomes engaged and animated when the talk turns to debates or topics of which she holds an interest. Romantically and sexually she seems a bit closed off, she finds her self attracted to both men and women but has limited her sexual encounters to only men so far. She does have a high libido and sometime acts impulsively where sexual encounters are concerned. She has had no romantic relationships lasting more than a couple of dates since higschool , although she has had many, too many "one night stands". She does have a bit of a reputation in some circles because of this.
 
Brief Background:
Carol was at UT in Austin in the second year of the astrophysics program when the Surge took place. Her eruption was not accompanied by any of the traumatic side effects so many of the new novas experienced and she discovered her new abilities without fanfare and was able to keep them secret during the crucial time following the crisis. She used her super- speed anonymously over the next several months to do what she could to help while she grappled with the changes the event had made not only too herself but to the rest of the world as well. Her priorities were changing and with her enhanced intelligence she managed continue her schooling completing her Physics degree in a little over a year she also came out as a Nova In 2010 unable to keep her physical and mental abilities a secret anymore, how ever she did not reveal her super-speed powers although she did keep using them in secret. As more information came out about the Nova phenomena including the downside of the abundant mental instabilities and illnesses she gave up her original goal of becoming an astronaut and began a new set of studies in Biophysics and Neuroscience as well as Philosophy and Meta Physics with the intent of learning as much about the surge and the how and why of its effects on humans and to help protect her fellow Novas from these terrible and deadly aberrations. During the years of study it took to finish her education, the Speedster continued to make appearances helping and even doing superhero work when appropriate, Her identity remained hidden from the public Her reasons for keeping the identity of the Speedster Secret was her desire to avoid the media attention it would bring which she believes would be detrimental to her other work. She also believes that the fame and media attention given to Novas is a contributing factor to their susceptibility to the Aberrations she hopes to prevent.

Only Recently has she been approached by the Novastorm corporation to take a position as a clinical psychologist and counselor for the company. Deciding to accept their offer she revealed her identity as the Speedster To Dr Aziz with the understanding that her identity remain a secret from the public, at least for the time being.

Micheal Carter had been raised in nearby Bridge City, Texas where he attended the local High school. Micheal was good looking young man, tall, broad shouldered and very athletic. He was a good student and an excellent athlete, lettering in several sports and winning a scholarship to the University of Texas. While attending U.T. at Austin he acquired a Civil Engineering Degree which led to a position working for the Corps of Engineers. It was while working a Project With the US Corps of Engineers in southwest Louisiana that he met his future wife Jeanne Benoit, who was at that time a Bank teller in Lake Charles Louisiana.

 

Jeanne Marilyn Benoit was the the fourth daughter and youngest child of six. She was born and raised in Lake Charles Louisiana and attended Barbe High School where she was active in the band, math club, and student council. Jeanne was an intelligent outgoing young woman, petite and curvy the vivacious redhead turned eyes wherever she went. After high school she attended Mc Nesse University and worked at a local bank as apart time teller.

 

Micheal had taken an apartment in Lake Charles to be more accessible to the project. He met Jeanne while conducting personal business at the bank she was working at. He was instantly taken with the young beauty and contrived to visit the bank several times a week always waiting for his new favorite teller. She was also attracted to the tall handsome Texan and the two became friends during their chatting sessions while she was on her breaks at the bank, they even shared lunch a couple of times and eventually he asked her out on a date, which she excepted. The two had fallen in love.

 

Even though there was a six year difference in age between them the two began dating and after Jeanne's Graduation they married. They settled in Micheal's home town of Bridge City and he continued working for the Civil Engineers and Jeanne went to work for a bank In nearby Orange Texas. Life for the couple was ideal in many ways and after three years of marriage they welcomed their one and only child, Carol Rene.

 

Carol was a precocious child walking, talking, and reading well before her local peers her curiosity knew no bounds. In June of 1996, at the age of five she watched the space shuttle Columbia launch on tv. Even though she didn't fully understand what she was watching she turned to her mommy and told her â€I want to ride the fire!â€, and from that moment that became her dream.

 

Incredibly intelligent the young girl dedicate herself to meet the goal of her dream, by learning everything she could she found that she had a knack for math and science so that was the route she decided to go. While not pushed by her parents she was encouraged by them whole heartedly even though they sometimes worried about her social growth. But she did make friends and even though she didn't spend hours playing with dolls and other childish thing she did not seem worse for wear.

 

As intelligent as she was she also did not forgo her physical well being. Though not tall she did inherit her fathers athleticism and desire for a fit body. By the time she was in her middle school years she was active in school sports such as track, volleyball, softball and tennis. She also did weight and fitness training knowing that an astronaut needed to be in peak physical shape.

 

She had many friends but only a few of them were close. She attended those social functions that she was expected too but passed on the more traditional teenage social activities and the drama that accompanied them. Not out of lack of desire for social activities but more out of lack of time. Her studies both school related and personal as well as her sports and scholarship activities filled her days and she was always in a rush to get to some sports event or attend some studies related function. She didn't have any boyfriends, or girlfriends for that matter, Although she did attend various dances and such with dates. She never became romantically evolved with any of them until her senior year of high school.

 

During the summer before her senior year she met some fellow students who introduced her to role playing game. She had been aware of them of course but had never had the time nor desire to participate until that summer. Coerced by a couple of friends she attended a gaming session and met a young man. Brian Daniels had graduated that year from a rival school and the upon meeting were immediately attracted to each other. He was an athlete who had lettered in several sports much like her father had. She attended several gaming sessions not particularly for the games but to get to know Brian better. After a few weeks he finally asked her out but not on normal date instead her took her to a mixed martial arts tournament he was competing at. She fell in love, not with Brian to his dismay, but with MMA. She immediately signed up for lessons and began training in Muay Thai and Kick Boxing

thus adding one more thing to already over flowing list of things she had to make time for. Brian and Carol dated through the summer of 2007, but they ended their relationship amicably when the school year started and he left for collage. She continued with her MMA training and eventually earned a green belt in Kickboxing before April 1 2009 and the surge.

 

 

 

Collage and That Day

 

Carol graduated valedictorian with a perfect academic record she had also lettered in Track, Voleyball, and Softball. Outside of school she had placed well in amateur MMA tournaments. While she would continue with track in collage and MMA as an amateur, her number one priority was her academics and so she chose to go to the University of Texas at Austin.

 

Easily meeting the requirements of the university and taking advantage of the CLEP program she dove right into her studies of astrophysics and excelled. Her first year was a whirlwind of activity, with school, sporting events and in the summer extra classes and a part time job, Carol was constantly in hurry rushing from one thing to the next, and was having to sacrifice her social life to meet the demands she was putting on her self. And her second year was shaping up to be even more crowded. Over the summer she had decided to add an engineering degree to her academic goal knowing that this would add time to her goal of completing her degree. Driving herself she buckled down and and got to work, unwilling to give up any of her other academic and sport activities. She simply added to her already burdensome schedule and pushed through it.

 

But all of that came to a screeching halt on April 1st 2009 at 9:57am.

 

It was a comfortable morning still cool the temperature was around 59 degrees. Carol had just finished her morning PT class with a 2 mile run around the track and she was doing some cool down stretches. She wasn't alone on the track aside form her self there were a couple of coaches some maintenance personal and another woman from her PT class who had been running as well and was now doing her stretches about ten yards away. That is when the surge washed over Texas.

 

It was like that feeling you get when the hair on the back of your neck stands up and your body gets a shiver from a non existing chill , then you tense up and shake for a just a second , then its gone except this time it didn't go away. Instead she felt a dull pop in her head and her muscles just folded up and she hit the ground. Disoriented for a few seconds her head throbbing with horrible pain which almost immediately fade to a slight ache before disappearing completely. Then she felt alright , no not alright, she actually felt great, energized. She didn't know what had happen her first thought was stroke but that couldn't be, then she noticed Merida, the other student.

 

Merida Diaz was a third year Carol didn't know her well not even enough to know what she was studying, just enough to say hi too. But now to Carols horror Merida was lying on the ground ten yards away having some sort of convulsions but it wasn't the convulsions that brought fear to Carols heart. Merida was covered in what looked like white sparks flashing and popping out of her skin like she was being electrocuted and a wail was coming from her that chilled the soul. Carol looked to the coaches to call for help when she saw that both of them were on the ground also convulsing but without the sparks the same with the maintenance personnel. She was the only one conscious and able to help so she did.

 

At least that's what she meant to do instead when she jumped to her feet and started to run to Merida she found herself lying on the ground again having shot like a bolt across the field and right into the padded wall at the end of the field. Picking her self up she tried again with much the same result. The third time sh go to Merida but it was too lat the young woman was dead.

 

All told Austin had gotten off lucky, only 16 fatalities were reported on Surge day, and only one eruption and no one knew about her. Yet.

 

The world itself fared much worse, the Surge as it would come to be called had wrecked havoc across the globe with millions of deaths caused either by the energy wave itself or as the result of accidents caused by its passing and that was just the event its self in the following days many more deaths would occur. Large swaths of the planet were changed and became uninhabitable to human life. But all of that is recorded elsewhere.

 

Carol learned of the event with in hours right along with the rest of the world and for days as communications were restored and more and more news came in she learned three very important things. First and to her most importantly her parents were safe and unharmed. Second, Cape Kennedy had been pretty much destroyed along with the fleet of Shuttles which had all been planet side at Kennedy during the surge and the Tsunami that had devastated Florida. America wouldn't be going back to space anytime soon at least no in the foreseeable future. Third Other People who had survived the Surge had Powers now too. Just like her.

 

Classes had been canceled for the remainder of the session and every went home if they still had a hom. Her parents told her to stay here In Austin for the time being she was safe there and there were so many refugees streaming into Texas from those fleeing the Zone in New Orleans it was like Katrina all over again but much much worse. So she stay and learned what she could do. Carol couldn't say why but she didn't want anyone to know about the powers. Unlike others she was hearing about she hadn't outwardly changed. But over the next few days after the Surge she found that she was smarter and much much quicker both mentally and physically Her energy was off the charts and her strength was phenomenal. But most of all she was fast. She experimented and found that she could easily reach speeds of around 500kph!. She also found that using that speed mad her ravenous in truth she found even if she didn't use her super speed she still found it hard not to eat three to four times what she might have eaten before and didn't gain a single pound.

Almost two weeks later She used her powers to help others for the first time. A small town about forty miles from Austin Suffered gas line explosion the blast leveled a city block luckily it was night and the blast itself cause no fatalities what it did do though was hurl burning debris over an enormous area and that debris started a fire in a low rent apartment complex near by. A CBS news crew from the Austin affiliate had been driving back to Austin from San Antonio when the blast occurred and they were on the scene of the fire within minutes. The local fire departments were overwhelmed and larger departments were too far away to reach the fire in time. It had been the middle of th night there were people trapped in the apartments. No one knew how many.

 

The tragedies of the past week had shocked everyone including Carol but seeing the fire She knew she could help perhaps prevent more tragedy at least for tonight. With out much thought Carol grabbed her hoodie and headed out side once clear of the Dorm she accelerated to top speed and beyond. In minutes she covered the distance to the town slowing on slightly as she entered the city limits she flashed to the scene of the fire and into the burning complex. Her speed making her a blur to any who witnessed the scene. She sped from apartment to apartment grabbing and carrying the trapped victims to safety. No one saw her clearly few even noticed that she was a woman. But a tragedy had been averted. And a new Hero joind the ranks of a growing number, albeit anonymously.

 

Throughout the summer the mysterious speedster continued to help across the Texas and Louisiana area and sometimes even farther. The media and authorities weren't even sure if they were dealing with one nova (as they were being called now) or several. Various names were used in connection including some of popular comic book characters. She was sometimes called the Flash, Lady Flash, Impulse, and even The Blur. She never spoke to the media or the authorities and never stayed at the scene to claim credit. Carol was determined that her identity as the Speedster would remain a secret. She had no intention of capitalizing on her powers. She didn't know it then but she was expressing survivors guilt. So many had died that day and she had been given super powers. No she would never take advantage of that she owed it to those who had died. She owed it to Merida.

 

In the fall things had returned to a form of normalcy and Classes were to resume. Carol returned to Campus and threw herself back into school she dropped all of her sports activities knowing that her physical abilities would come out if she continued and instead took on more academic course. She found that she needed little sleep and the time was better spent pursuing her education. By the end of her third year she had finished her basic physics degree and through online course made in roads on two new degrees, BioPhysics and Philosophy. At commencement in the sprig of 2010 she announced that she was indeed an Nova to her fellow classmates and the faculty. She returned the honors she had won and asked that she be forgiven fr the deception she even explained that she had feared the reaction if her friends had known that she was different. She explained that eh Surge had made her stronger and tougher and smarter, but declined to go further and admit to her superhuman quickness and speed.

 

She continued her education but now she concentrated on understanding the connections between the Quantum Surge and the Human species. What caused the mutations. How to protect the human race and once it became know how to protect and hopefully cure those Novas who had become tainted and turned in to Aberrations. She also continued to act as the speedster still anonymously.

 

In 2014 after the Toykyo Incident she was approached By Dr Aziz of Nova Storm with an offer...

What is Known...
 
... At A Glance: Danielle is a very notably attractive woman, standing over six feet and with a well-built figure. Until recently she was typically found in casual-wear in her signature red, white and black colors, but recently - after acquiring a eufiber costume - she seems to have shifted to a more traditional superheroic outfit. She carries herself with restraint and care, as if mindful of the power at her command. Despite this restraint, she's very pleasant to talk to, always ready to shake a hand or give a hug and a reassuring smile.
 
... With Some Research: Danielle Winters erupted last year in between the stress of exams, realizing she was a transgender woman, and - the final straw - seeing her friends attacked with pepper spray and tasers at a rally demanding justice for a woman shot in the street. There is notable footage on the Internet with her at the rally, grabbing tear gas canisters out of the air, shattering batons in her fingers, deflating the tires of police vehicles and shrugging off multiple taser darts without a pause in her step.
 
Less noted is when she willingly gave herself up to the authorities after the rallies dragged on for several days and the police escalated their presense, to the point of making noise about calling in a mercenary nova to take the activist down. The condition of her arrest, agreed upon by her and the chief of police, was that she be the only one to be arrested, and so she wound up an impromptu negotiator from her cell, eventually persuading the chief of police that there needed to at least be some sort of indictment of the officer who did the shooting. During this time, details of her life came out and she was outted as the first transgender nova, circumstances she described as "not exactly how I wanted to come out to my parents."
 
The charges against her were eventually dropped, and Danielle became something of a populist hero, showing up at rallies to defend protestors, diving headlong into disaster areas and Surge Zones to rescue people, and slugging it out with the occasional monster or recalitrant nova. In one of the question-and-answer sessions she fielded on YouTube, she described the new post-transition her as "trying, and sometimes succeeding, at being the best individual I can make myself. Making myself anew into the best thing I'll ever create; my very own magnum opus."
 
The name stuck.
 
Recently, Magnum Opus - resistant to joining any one large organization - has surprisingly given thought to joining NovaStorm. The events last month in Tokyo may have had something to do with it.
 
... To Her Closest Friends: In addition to being "out," Danielle has a third active identity as Zoe Larke, an everyday woman who works as a social worker, helping prepare people for legal counsel and helping people navigate bureacratic institutions. She keeps this identity to have a place where she can be the normal, everyday woman she never got a chance to be.
 
Powers and Abilities: In many ways, a true rennaisance woman, excelling in no clear area but not decifient in many areas either. Magnum Opus has been clocked at easily lifting 25 tons and at times lifting far more than that. She's built things in minutes that would take others hours, survived ascending into low Earth orbit, and has enhanced visual senses. She is able to fly at approximately 500 KPH and has shrugged off attacks ranging from an assault rifle to an antitank grenade. She is also naturally empathic, able to sense what is troubling people and help them find emotional equilibrium. Unknown to all but a few, Danielle can make herself look like a normal, non-superhuman individual with little to no resemblance to either her pre-transition self or with the way she looks to most everyone.
