Raven black. As Alexis it's down in curls to her midback. As Haste she pulls it back into a tight ponytail.Eyes:
Extremely dark brown. Often her eyes are considered black.Appearance:
Alexis is a beautiful woman with an athletic build and chocolate colored skin. Her natural beauty doesn't require much make-up at all, which allows her to wear very minimal amounts, and never having to worry about it getting smeared in the middle of battle. She has small B-cup breasts, long toned legs and a nice bubble butt. Though by the standards of most black girls her butt is on the small side. If she could get away with jeans and a tank top at school she would, but most often she'll wear a proper, knee-length skirt or pants suit to class.Personality:
Alexis is a smart and tough English teacher that enjoys making the kids in her class use their brains rather than do drills over and over again. Creativity is her philosophy and she wants the teens to really get creative. At school she's the teacher that kids enjoy going to, but those not in her class think she's extremely strict. It's not to say that she's not strict, but the rules are the rules in her class and no one is going to push the boundaries or even test them without serious consequences. Once they get past that, she's actually a fun teacher and will help any student out that needs help with an assignment.
In costume, Haste is a different person. It's not that she doesn't hold the same values as she does in her classroom, she does. In fact she believes that there are serious consequences for breaking the law and she's not afraid to beat up a couple of thugs (even if their in her class) to teach them a lesson. She works well with the police officers, able to shoot the shit with them if she has a little bit of downtime. She opens up a little more as Haste than she does as Alexis. A psychologist may say it's because of the mask, able to hide behind it without consequence, but she'd say it's no different than letting go when going out clubbing. History:
Alexis grew up on the rough side of town and has always had a bit of a rough edge to her. She's come across her abilities naturally having had both parents be metahumans. When she was around eight she came into a situation that she couldn't get out of. There was a shootout and a bullet came through her bedroom window striking her dead between the eyes. The young Alexis that that was it, that death must feel like a sharp pain and then nothing more.
However that wasn't the case at all. She come around the next morning convinced that she woke up in Hell. It took a bit of convincing from her mother and father that she wasn't in Hell but still in the same rough neighborhood they'd always lived in. The process took about a year to full get over between sessions with her school counselor, but more importantly the English teacher at her school. She got her feelings out on paper and managed to get through it after roughly a year.
Knowing that she was unbreakable did empower her a good deal. She thought she'd be a heroine like her mom had been, and in her early teens she took up the role as "Brickhouse" in her neighborhood. Once her mom and dad found out she got grounded for what seemed like forever and scolded and hugged. She was told that they just worried for her safety and that being a superhero was no game. She insisted that she knew, but like many things when you're a kid, you just don't know
Alexis really didn't get her first real-world experience until she was seventeen. She'd filled out and had the nice curvy hips, full breasts, and a beautiful smile. She'd been walking home from school after she missed the bus. When three guys confronted her and ordered her to take off her clothes she looked at them like they were insane. After they rushed her she ran in the other direction. She ran and ran, until she suddenly realized she was clear across the county in only her panties and tank top. Her shoes and pants had burned from the sudden burst of speed.
She kept it a secret from her parents but she got a swimsuit, figuring that it would hold up to her running, some boots with a three inch heel and a domino mask. She managed to actually clean up a couple of blocks near her house and start up a few rumors about a new superheroine roaming the streets. The ability to dodge bullets and kick ass got her adrenaline up as a late teen and even at college she could do no wrong.
Alexis was two years into college before her first defeat. She chased down a purse snatcher up to a rooftop. He managed to lose her and then shoved her off the five-story dormitory. She fell and slammed into the pavement. When he realized she didn't die he took her back to his place, tied her up, stripped her, and then proceeded to humiliate her. He forced her to so many orgasms she lost count, then he raped her every hole all the while forcing her to enjoy it. She did manage an escape after that and kicked his ass.
A few short months later the city recognized her as a heroine of the people. As she was now to be a public figure they gave her new golden suit that would keep up with her abilities, and an earpiece that she could use to contact the authorities. People would recognize her on sight and run away, she'd chase them down, get them arrested and go to the next crime scene.
Over time she gained quite the reputation for cleaning up a lot of the rougher neighborhoods. Able to continue her day job and clean up the streets by molding young minds to be creative rather than destructive, and her night job by teaching them the consequences for breaking the law. Now at 32 she's scarcely been defeated (although it has happened a few times) and protects her part of the city (the "inner city") as best she can.Super Power #1:
Super Speed. Alexis can move at speeds well above the sound barrier. And while she hasn't been able to clock her fastest speed, she knows she can easily cause several sonic booms in one run. If she ran full blast for two hours without needing to stop for food or to catch her breath, or needing to dodge such things as people, trees, or buildings, she could theoretically run around the world at the equator once. However sustaining such a speed for such a time has proven, as of yet, impossible for her. She can react extremely fast as well, allowing her to dodge or even catch bullets shot at her.Super Power #2:
Unbreakable. As one might imagine running at such speeds causes a lot of stress on the body. It would be useless to have such power without a secondary power to back it up. Her skin, muscles, tendons, organs, bones and all are unbreakable. Meaning if she trips while running several times the speed of sound she'll bounce, skid, and careen around for a while, but she won't die from a simple trip and fall...or from running into a bug at such speeds. It also has the added benefit of being bullet proof and slash proof. A minor result of this is her natural beauty. Most people have cells that start to break down at a certain age (between 25 and 30 typically), but Alexis' cells don't do this. After she reached her peak at 27 she plateau here and hasn't aged since. Equipment:Costume:
Haste's costume is made of a material that can stand up to her and her insane speeds. Because of the speeds she runs at the costume has to be skin tight, though not so tight it looks painted on. The costume itself is a soft, shiny gold color, and full body. The costume is also backless with an X much like a one-piece swimsuit would have to hold it up and secure. It covers her legs and her front but not her arms. She wears boots with a three-inch heel, just enough to give her legs some definition but not impossible to run in. They are also gold in color and can stand up to her abilities. Finally she wears a sleek gold domino mask over the top half of her face to help conceal her identity. Helpful since half the thugs she runs into go to the same school she's a teacher.Weakness:Bondage:
As much as she'd hate to admit it, she can't run if her legs are tied up. She might be able to flail around really fast, but a good hogtie can keep her down. Though anything to keep her feet immobile will work.Trip Wires:
Wires can be set up to trip her up. She can't watch the ground while she's running or she'd simply run into something. Wires up high or down low tend to work, when moving at super speeds it's plain hard to see a wire. She can be clotheslined or tripped up, or a trap could be set to trigger if she trips a wire. At any rate they're difficult to see.Sticky Situations:
Similarly an extremely sticky surface could bind her legs up long enough that she'll trip and fall, or that she'll fall into more of the goop. Slippery Surfaces:
It's not impossible to run on slippery surfaces, but it is
hard to stop or otherwise turn. Drugs:
Inhaled, ingested, or absorbed through the skin all work on her. While she may not be able to be injected with anything, many other delivery methods work.Unbreakable. Not Invincible:
While she can't break a bone in her body, get a scratch, or shot. That doesn't mean that things don't still hurt
. Getting shot is painful, or punched in the face. Getting tossed off a tall building or run over by a trailer truck would still knock her out and give her a migraine afterwards. While she doesn't bruise, the immediate pain is still there as are lingering pains, such as if she got kicked in the crotch.Incredible Appetite:
Alexis burns an incredible amount of calories when she's running around saving lives. It requires her to eat massive amounts of food in order to keep up her healthy figure. Sneak Attack:
A sneak attack works well with her. Anything she can see coming can be dodged, but hit her from a blindspot (particularly behind her) and she won't be able to react in time. Costume:
Her costume has to be stretchy in order for it to work right on her frame and while she's using her abilities. If it weren't she'd burn a hole in it due to friction between just the fabric and her skin, not to mention her legs rubbing together or other such things. The extra "stretch" in it allows it to move with her and flex when it needs to. However this also means that she can be raped straight through the costume without needing to take it off.Player Ons/Offs: Seriously too long to list.Player Limits:
I should be able to post once a day or at least once every two days. If not then I'll give a heads up in the OOC.
