Uploaded with ImageShack.us Name: Autumn Winter Summers Nickname: Spirit [she refuses to answer to her given name, a friend starting calling her Spirit in Elementary School and it stuck] Code Name: Shimmer Powers: Speed and Agility, she can run at super sonic speeds, throw hyper accelerated punches, act with near perfect precision, balance and accuracy, and possesses hyper aware intuition. Her natural dexterity is superhuman, and her code name is an indication of just how fast she can be, so quick all you see is a shimmer where she was. Nationality: USA Background: Her father was a Captain in the US army, he had served in world war II with distinction, and his wife was a Jewish immigrant from Germany who married him and returned with him to the U.S after the war. Autumn was born November 1st, 1920, the day after Halloween, in Washington D.C, where her father was serving in the pentagon, and was the eldest child, her name was chosen as a sort of compromise between her parents, though she would eventually chose not to use it at all. Her two brothers were born over the next 8 years or so, but she remained the eldest, and though her parents were protective and loving there daughter, they also expected her to be responsible and a good example. The great depression did not affect her family as bad as it did some, as her father was still in the military at the time, though he had been thinking of retiring, he stayed in, as much to insure his family was provided for as for the fact he enjoyed his work. It did have them moving around a lot as her father was posted in different locations thoughout the USA. In the late 30's, Autumn was going by Spirit at this point and spending a lot of time with a native America Shaman who went by Bright Eagle, and she was somewhat interested by the idea of a spirit quest and a totem animal, and when she was 18 she underwent a spirit quest of her own. A nova himself, his powers expressed themselves though his shamanic focus, so when she became a nova in the process of going though a guided spirit quest, he was surprised but supportive and remains a able mentor in her new capabilities. It was here that she found her Totem was the Horse and that her powers awoke, just as world war two was about to begin, and her sense of responsibility was such that she thought she should try to make a difference in this war.. it was at this point that she took on the hero name of Shimmer, and began to look for ways to use her superhuman speed and dexterity to help the Allied powers. ,, She really is close to the fastest and most agile person alive, which makes her useful in rescue and retrieval operations, as well as insertions into enemy territory. Besides her physical speed, she can read and do mathematical calculations at high speeds now, though her intelligence remains just barely on this side of human.. for now. ,, She is an incredible athlete and martial artist, and has begun study of more military skills and tactics, in part due to her father's insistence and assistance, though he initially resisted, when he realized she was going to assist in the war with or without his support, he got her training, arranged to get her a suit of experimental Aetherfiber, and has worked to persuade Colonel Ryan Hawke to take her on as part of his special corps, ,, Stats ,, Strength 2; Dexterity (Graceful) 5 [Athletics 5, Drive 1, Gunnery 1, Legerdemain 1, Martial Arts 5, Melee 1, Pilot 1, Stealth 1]; Stamina (Healthy) 4 [Endurance 3, Resistance 3];, Perception (Intuitive) 4 [Awareness 3, Navigation 1]; Intelligence (Discerning) 5 [Academics 2, Science 1], Wits (Iron Nerves) 5[Rapport 2, Tactics 1], Charisma 3[Etiquette 1, Perform 1], Manipulation 3[subterfuge 1], Appearance (Exotic) 5 ,, Backgrounds Aetherfiber 5, Backing 1, Mentor 2 (Bright Eagle), Node 5, Influence 3 (Some of this though her father's contacts), Resources 1 ,, Merits and Flaws Speed Reading, Lightning Calculator, Overconfidence, Phobia: Claustrophobia ,, Powers ,, 'To Outrun the Wind' [Hyperrunning 5] - Shimmers greatest ability, she can litterally run faster then sound itself, in fact she can actually run at twice the speed of sound [MACH 2 = 2450.88 kmh], outrunning even the wind is pretty much possible for her.

In the case of Hypermovement, this should be applied after all other calculations. This can be applied to her normal movement also, but with hyperrunning, theoretically she could reach speeds of Mach 12 for short periods of time. ,, Other Quantum 5 Quantum Pool: 40 Taint: 2 ,, Willpower 6 ,, Movement Walk: 7 meters - With Enhanced Movement: 42 Run: 22 meters - With Enhanced Movement: 132 - With Hyper Running - 312 - With Both: 1872 Sprint: 50 Meters - With Enhanced Movement: 300 - With Hyper Running: 350 - With Both: 2100 ,, Initiative: 15 (Note: Automatically wins Initiative unless opponents have Mega-Dexterity or Enhanced Initiative Enhancement from Mega-Wits) ,, Soak: 4 Bashing, 2 Lethal Aetherfiber: Adds 5 Soak to the above when fully charged (And she rarely drains it) ,, Health: Bruised, Hurt, Injured, Wounded, Maimed, Crippled, Incapacitated, Dead Point Costs
Name: June O'Gara Codename: Whirlwind Birthplace: Liverpool, England Birthdate: January 8, 1920 Age: 21 Early Background June O'Gara was born to a World War One veteran and a Military Nurse in a neighborhood in the dock districts of Liverpool, England. June throughout her childhood had a Tomboy streak, and that was further fueled by her use of a Ætherlabe. She was known to get into fights to protect her friends from being bullied, and in sticking up for people. To channel her energy, Her father taught her how to hunt, starting her off with a small pistol since he wagered that she couldn't handle a rifle. She proved him wrong by showing him she was a crack shot. She also learned a few things about first aid from her Mother, who had plenty of experience during the great war patching up injured soldiers. In fact she spent most of her time putting bandages and other sundry medical implements on her brother, a reckless thrill seeker. She loved her brother dearly, and it is believed this was the trigger for her powers to manifest. Her brother enlisted in the Royal Navy right on graduation. He served admirably, but without any distinction that made him stand out. But on July 5 1940, the destroyer he was stationed on, the HMS WHIRLWIND was sunk by a U-boat torpedo, Southwest of Ireland. No one could find him during the rescue effort, and was pronounced dead. When the news got back, June was devastated. Then her Dynamic powers manifested in a pair of glowing wings of light. After the funeral, She decided to start bettering herself, although the call to action would grab her when the Blitz came to England. Her home town of Liverpool was ransacked and her family moved to Cardiff with other family members to avoid the bombs and air raids. June stayed when Winston Churchill heard of her other powers. It was known to Ministry of Defense that she was a flier, and they considered tapping her to join the WAAF, but Churchill had other plans. Now June acts as a agent of rescue, answering to the Minsitry of Defense under direct supervision of Winston Churchill himself. Answering the call however she can to rescue downed pilots and injured soldiers behind enemy lines. Some see her as a inspiration, others an annoyance as war is a gentleman's job. But none can question her heart, her patriotic sense of duty, and her conviction. She bears the code name Whirlwind, a request from June herself so that she can bear witness and give honor to the men lost on the HMS Whirlwind, including her dear brother. Appearance and Personality June off duty is a kind, humble woman. Always willing to lend an ear and sometimes give advice. On duty though, she is by the book and driven. Although she won't sacrifice others to complete a mission. Some see this as a weakness, but so far, her casualty rates on her support teams has been quite low. June off duty wears whatever she can off of her ration cards, while on duty she wears a navy-blue, sailor collared one-piece jumpsuit with a red beret. She's made sure that her outfit on duty doesn't match any sailor's uniform she works with, and it has a sort of pin-up quality to it, although it is rather modest and tasteful. She's also not above to wearing any important gear she may need on her missions. She has ginger red hair, piercing green eyes, and freckles over the bridge of her nose. She bears a scar on her right arm after a nasty fall in her youth into a lake that nearly drowned her.
