Hero Name, Ex-VillainReal Name:
BisexualPower/Ability: Reality Perception
- Cassidy can perceive reality, allowing her to sense the whole truth no matter how it is hidden. If she is questioning someone, she will automatically know if target is lying and sense the truth. Cassidy is immune to illusions caused by users of Telepathy, Mental Manipulation, and Illusion Manipulation, even if the users of those themselves are not in the area (as in another building). As a result of her ability to perceive the truth, she can also not be fooled by tricksters, reality warpers, or even feints in hand-to-hand combat. Cassidy is a talented gymnast, marksman, and combatant. She is also much smarter than she looks, with an advanced knowledge of chemistry and explosives. Like most heroes and villains, she is in peak physical condition. Her movements and fighting style render her a completely unpredictable opponent, making her extremely tough to take down.
Her power set, irrational mind, and total unpredictability made her a terror for heroes to fight against, but versus a shambling mass of mindless flesh-eaters, her powers are less useful. Still, they've proven good enough to help her avoid getting bitten, making her an excellent scout. Bio:
Cassidy Cadence was a completely normal girl right up until she developed her powers. At first, doctors and her parents merely thought she had a mental breakdown due to stress at school. The truth of the matter was that being able to suddenly perceive the truth in everything all at once briefly shattered her mind and drove her completely insane. With the lies of the government, her friends, even her own parents laid bare, she suffered a breakdown and was taken to Wayward Pines Mental Ward. After a year's treatment her psyche seemed to heal itself to some degree and she escaped, wounding six staff members and killing two in the process. From that point on she seemed to have a better grasp on reality and her powers, but she was disillusioned with the world as a whole and took to anarchy.
As Non-Sequitur (a name given to her by the media), Cassidy committed various crimes. Some of them were more conventional, such as bombings, arson, or robberies. Others made little to no sense at all, such as the time she sealed the Fifth Street Credit Union air tight and filled it with water. She recieved almost no hero attention until the night she earned her infamy by murdering the Powered Patriot, a super soldier with five years experience under his belt. Patriot had long been considered to be one of the toughest heroes in the business, an ex-soldier with a large amount of combat experience, endowed with super strength, durability, and speed. His traditional fighting style rendered him extremely predictable to Cassidy, however, and she gradually wore him down until she was finally able to snap his neck. News Channel 6, hoping to see Patriot capture an anarchist live on TV, filmed the event and their cameras recorded everything for viewers at home as, atop the 101st St. Post Office, Cassidy broke the Patriot and pushed his body off the roof. She then shouted 'Sic semper tyrannis!' and ran off into the night while everyone stared, slack-jawed.
The apocalypse hasn't changed her much. On one hand, she quite enjoyed the chaos of those first few terrifying hours. On the other, she finds things terribly boring now that most of humanity has been wiped out. Zombies are not much fun to play with, though she does appreciate the fact that the undead hold no secrets or lies, and run on pure instinct. Cassidy joined with the survivors simply to help preserve her own life. In exchange, she uses her knowledge of chemistry and her abilities to aid them. She may even be the only remaining person able to figure out the truth behind Apex's disappearance...Notes:
Favors women more than men. Extremely picky when it comes to men. Often answers questions with questions.
