Appearance: Val is a cute teen, not overly so but definitely not ugly. She's slim and athletic, the former being due to her high metabolism. While on-duty, she dresses in red leather pants and top; the shirt has a logo of a missile firing from right to left across her chest. Off-duty, she dresses like most teen girls; clothing that is way too mature for her.

Powers, Skills, and Personality:

Known Powers: As a speedster, Val's been clocked at 1,000 mph. Her body is in overdrive and metabolizes everything, from poisons to food, incredibly fast. She also can move faster than anyone else and her body heals rapidly on its own. Her defenses revolve around being tough. While she can dodge with the best of them, she's also pretty tough. Various eggheads have seen tougher, but not in someone who is also as fast as she is. Offensively, she has small blasts that she can emit from her hands. The eggheads are not sure what these blasts are; Val calls them her missiles. Using them, she has developed three signature moves:

The Jericho - named after a imaginary missile she saw in a movie, the Jericho sends out a flurry of small missiles from her outstretched hands.

Rock'em Sock'em - this movement involves Val running in a straight line and hitting anyone who gets in her way. Simple and brutal.

The Hammer - easily her most damaging attack. Val plants her hand in the victim's chest and releases a "missile".

Abilities/Special Skills: Due to her associations as a younger woman, Val has a wide variety of skills, most of which involve her being somewhere she shouldn't be and getting there without being seen. Even her skill at climbing, jumping and other acrobatic talents comes from her days of remorseless breaking and entering.

Personality: Val is a teen girl and acts it. She's a little more hardened than most girls her age, having seen the high price of villainy first-hand. While she can be silly and impulsive - and likes the Twilight books - she also can become serious when it is needed.

Background (OOC - Part of her Secret Identity):

This background is waiting on further information to update it for LCU; though pulled from the ECS game, this is still basically her history.

Val was born as part of a Nazi eugenics project in Brazil code-named The Farm and funded by SHADOW. It was designed to create the Aryan race, complete with superpowers. Run by Mengele himself, it created powerful children destined to become villains, or so SHADOW hoped. All the children were named by Mengele; their first names were strong Germanic names, their middle was Adolph or Adolpha and their last was Mengele in a burst of meglomania. The Farm was found and stopped after producing only twenty children or so. Though all the adult responsible were arrested or killed, the children were long-gone, given to mentors and parents throughout SHADOW.

Vala was adopted by the Ben "Dark Smoke" Frazier, who raised her to be a thief. He soon realized that she wasn't going to become a master thief like himself so he sent her to finish her training with the Razers. She was accepted into their ranks and took the name Blitzkrieg.

The Razers were all children raised in the culture of the SHADOW, coming from various backgrounds and skill sets. Val learned the value of teamwork and supporting others in her time with them. Though the Razers thought they were on their own, they were subtly guided by their parents and mentors to make their time together a positive learning experience. Vala made friends among the kids there, including Christina "Wasp-Sting" Garcia.

Then Johnny "Blood Hand" Wu decided to sacrifice Christina for the success of a mission. Christina died horribly, with Vala being helpless to stop them or help her friend. Some young villains might have seen this as a lesson to be stronger and tougher than their fellow villains, to avoid that kind of betrayal. Vala simply decided that villains sucked. She used her limited computer skills to find a forgery artist and used her earnings to that date to buy herself a new life. It is a fully function ID and has held up enough for her to get a Muni-Def job in Lake City (and yes, she picked her public name, which is why it's so silly but many would say it's better than her birth name). She ran away from her villains life and is trying to start in Lake City. It's attractive because of its size and lack of a super-hero team. She's been making a living as best she can, mostly through homeless shelters in the city.


Secret Identity: Valentine isn't her true name, and should the truth come out, it's likely to be bad for her. Even worse would be the truth about her origins; while not something she chose for herself, what else could be hidden in her genetics?

Power Loss: Val has to eat enough to fuel her body's prodigious metabolism. Without a high calorie diet, her powers rapidly fade.

*Teenager: Teenagers are all a little crazy from their hormones. Additionally, it's hard for teens to make money without awkward questions arising. There are a number of difficulties related to being a minor without guardians. Blitz has gotten around these by providing paperwork (Benefit 1) that "proves" she's 18 but she still suffers from the issues that arise from being a teenager.

Misconceptions and Misunderstandings: Val may have decided that villains suck but one doesn't overcome one's childhood indoctrination overnight.

Secret Identity: Val would rather people not tie her to Blitz. The Razers are bound to recognize Blitz as their former Blitzkrieg and Val doesn't want to be harassed "off-duty".

Motivation - Villains Suck: Losing her BFF made Val reassess her life as a villain. What had happened to Christina had hurt her and it had sucked. So she wants to make sure that no one else has to lose their BFF like she did.
