Artemis Crock "Tigress"Age:
21Appearance: Skills/ Abilities:
Hand-to-Hand: Artemis is an expert in hand-to-hand combat, both using melee range weapons and her fists. Her style is focused primarily around kicks, long, sweeping motions that take advantage of her taller frame and put her at less of a disadvantage because of her gender and size. The training comes from not only her time with Green arrow as his second protege, but under the tutelage of her father Sportsmaster and rivalry with her sister Cheshire.
Conditioning: Although her strength, speed and agility aren't superhuman by any measure, Artemis has beyond ordinary human conditioning, able to keep pace with the likes of Nightwing, Batman and Green Arrow as another superhero without meta-human abilities.
Acrobatics: Artemis is no Dick Grayson when it comes to acrobatics and moving around the field, but her abilities are extraordinary when compared to the average. She is still able to utilize her equipment and environment to assist her in dodging, moving and attacking.
Covert Operations: Artemis, as many of the regular human heroes, is an expert in infiltration, stealth movement, camouflage and the tactical movements of an operation. Though her skill in planning such things may not be as advanced as others, her execution of a strategy or tactic is flawless, along with her understanding of those strategies.
First Aid: Without any formal training in the medical sciences, she isn't a doctor by any measure, but along with Green Arrow, she learned how to treat wounds in the field, with or without a proper first aid kit. Equipment:
Crossbow, Assortment of different bolts, Blowpipe with sedative darts, Flechettes (darts that are thrown, filled with poison, knockout or explosive liquids), Bolas, smoke bombs and a new sword, similar to Deathstroke.Personality/ Character traits:
Aggressive, passionate, defensive, confrontational, wildHistory:
Artemis Crock was born in Gotham city to a completely criminal family. Her mother was huntress, a ruthless criminal, and her father was Sportsmaster, a similarly criminal man. Her only sibling is Cheshire, a former criminal turned family woman. When she was growing up, her father trained her in the way of combat, weaponry and the criminal underworld. During this time, Artemis and her sister Cheshire were subjected to a horrifying amount of verbal, psychological and even physical abuse. She was pitted against her sister frequently, creating bitter, resentful feelings.
After many years, Artemis' parents had a job go extraordinarily bad. Her mother ended up in a chair, her legs paralyzed and imprisoned, taking the fall for her brutish father and serving instead of him. Another set of years until she was released from prison went by, Artemis' sister running from her tyrannical father, her mother freeing her from his influence. During this time, Artemis adopted a crime fighting alias, or would be, were it not her own name anyways. She followed the original team in their earliest ventures and eventually was accepted into their fold, with the lie told that she was the niece of Green Arrow.
While she was on the team, Artemis grew strong bonds with Robin and Aqualad, but after a number of years and the original team breaking down, Artemis and Wally West decided to hang up their identities and live a normal life again. She was called back into action by Nightwing to assist in an infiltration assignment, working with Aqualad as his Lieutenant under the new alias tigress. During this time, Artemis grew even closer to Aqualad, as he was the only friend of hers there for the months of undercover operations. Artemis came back into crime-fighting full time again when her partner Wally sacrificed himself for the greater good. She took up the new equipment and the alias tigress, but keeps her old green clothes, still in a time of transition. She forged her own path solo, but answered the call of Nightwing, joining a new team, the Titans.
