I am dropping a claim down for Patsy Walker!
“I’ve fought a lot of devils - outside and inside. And while we’re bonding, I love what you’ve done with your hair. So now that we’re buds, I’ll be goin’.”Faceclaim: Ebba ZingmartPlayer Name:
Life in ColorCharacter Name:
Patsy, Trish, TriciaAlias:
Radio Talk Show Host – “Trish Talk”, Waitress, Barista Desired Ons/Wishlist: See here!Absolute No-Nos: See here!Background: (WIP)
Patsy didn’t have too terrible of a childhood until she became a child actress – and then her life only took a turn for the worse because her mother, Dorothy, couldn’t handle the fame. Other than trying to sell novelizations of her daughter’s life, Dorothy also wandered down the abusive route when it came to Patsy. Seeking more fame, Dorothy adopted Jessica Jones, an orphan at the time, and raised the two girl. The girls didn’t get along at first, but trauma breeds survivors and Jessica became Patsy’s protector within the household, keeping Patsy safe from their mother until they were old enough to move out on their own.
Free from a career of acting and her mother’s oppressive presence, Patsy took her skills and became a radio talk show host, eventually moving up to have own show, “Trish Talk”. Radio stardom isn’t what it used to be, however, and Patsy also works part-time as a waitress and part-time as a barista.
Continuing to work in New York has forced Patsy to learn a few things here and there, and the woman is a passable martial artist, although nowhere on the level as the other heroes who lucked out and got abilities that augment their current states, Patsy was gifted her own kind of magic. A suit of blue and yellow that shifts to whatever Patsy’s whims want it to be. The suit is also equipped with Patsy’s main weapons, claws, and imbue her with the abilities that earn her the –Cat section of her superhero alias.
The term “hellcat”, on the streets, was usually tied to a definition of a woman that was meant to belittle her or make the woman feel like they were doing something overly aggressive – and it was a term that sometimes showed up a lot on the review boards for Patsy’s radio show. So, the first time she worked with her local heroes, Patsy chose the name “Hellcat”.Relationships (WIP)Jessica Jones - Misty Knight -
Without the suit, Patsy is your average girl. She’s not Superhuman, or Inhuman, or a Mutant, or a charity case of any sort. The suit, however, is a magic thing that has bonded to Patsy and appears around her body at will, in whatever kind of fashion she wants it to be.
While wearing the suit, Hellcat possesses a high level of agility and a heightened sense of sight – you could say she gets… catty
. Along with this set of basic powers, Hellcat’s hands and feet end in steel-edges claws that you probably don’t want to be on the receiving end of.
Patsy runs her own radio show and dabbles in the low-paying side of the customer service industry. As such, she’s had to learn how to keep the ears of everyone she talks to interested. Intelligence:
She’s not college-educated or anything, but Patsy is far from dumb. Martial Artist:
A natural bi-product of living in New York, it seems. Beauty:
If Patsy hasn’t had to work for anything, it’s her good looks. From an early age, Patsy has been considered “beautiful” and was casted as a child actress – a career she changed out for being a radio show host.
