Deirdre is an extremely skilled martial artist, acrobat and possesses a fairly high intellect. Deirdre is skilled in various traditional martial arts with a focus on various forms of kickboxing, throws and grappling.
She has a strong intellect but much to her chagrin doesn't have the creativity of her father when it comes to imagnatively intricate puzzles, games and other elaborate plans. She's a budding interrogator and investigator as well, using her analytical abilities and intelligence in crime fighting and vigilantism. She's an excellent biker and a fairly skilled gearhead and skilled shooter with pistols and rifles.Visual Appearance:
Short and slim, with dark brown, almost black hair, brown eyes and fair skin.Personality:
Deirdre suffers from several behaviorial problems and exceptional social anxiety and awkwardness. Often mistaken for acting without emotion or amorally, she actually has plenty of both but has obvious trouble in expressing herself. Oftentimes, when she tries to show emotion or personality, she feels it is so stilted and forced it might as well be acting whether genuine or not. While she typically feels empty she does find herself valuing human connections and gets a certain satisfaction from accomplishment and recognition but finds her emotional highs quickly counteracted by fear and trepidation bordering on paranoia. Morally, she is conflicted as she gets a rush from the stimulation that action and excitement and violence brings her, almost regardless of the outcome and due to her ability to focus, can be relentless in driving herself towards a goal.
Nina Samfino and Deirdre Vance (not their real names) were once employees of a Gotham City S&M club before finding the life of entertaining others to be both boring and pathetic. Instead they pursued a career in crime, knocking off convenience stores and it was in one of those robberies that they encountered a young man later known as the Riddler engaging in one of his first crimes as well. The trio hit it off immediately, with the Riddler employing them as his henchwomen Echo and Query. For several years they teamed up as a formidable trio with them providing the athleticism and physical prowess that complimented the Riddler's intellect perfectly.
However it was never a match for the Batman and after one foiledfelony too many, the girls were locked up in Blackgate Prison while the Riddler reformed, and later managed to secure their very early release. The girls decided to retire from criminal activity and while Query and Echo remained close, Query felt somewhat betrayed by the Riddler and his sudden reformation. As it was, Echo and Riddler remained good friends, and for a period of time, were far more then friends, resulting in a pregnancy and thus Deirdre Damfino was born.
Growing up, her mother and father, as well as her Aunt Deirdre, decided to guide the youth to not making the same costly mistakes they did in pursuing a career of criminality but tragedy struck when young Deirdre was diagnosed with various social and behaviorial disorders, much like her father, though not nearly as obsessive and compulsive in nature. Still, determined to overcome nature, Deirdre was raised as best as possible in an effort to overcome her various behavorial problems by having her being both physically, emotionally and mentally active in academics, sports and extra curricular activities. Deirdre initially hoped to become a Special Agent with the FBI or CIA or some other national intelligence or federal law enforcement position but found herself blacklisted due to the excuse of her 'mental state' though she alledged it was due to her parentage.
As such, she pursued the life of a vigilante instead, having inherited from her Mother a great deal, mostly, a lifelong addiction to adrenaline and action and adventure. Sexual Ons:
