Cassandra D'ArqueAlias (Supers only):
SuperheroRegistered with SPECTRE:
NIf a Super, List Powers: Clairvoyance/Remote Viewing
- She can see events taking place in the present through visions. While having one of these visions, though, she is vulnerable until it is over, unable to hear, see, etc. anything taking place in reality. Sometimes she can see things at a distance close up, like she is seeing it through a telescope or binoculars. She is able to control the remote viewing to a degree, though it is draining, but her clairvoyance seems to be triggered randomly.Precognition
- Through dreams or visions she may see the future. However, it is subjective. Some of the visions may not happen and she doesn't have the context. She has no way of directing the Sight or controlling when it happens or what she sees except through scrying after a ritual to purify the room and her spirit.Retrocognition
- Through dreams or visions she may see the past. Again, she doesn't have the context and the visions seem to be random. Psychometry
- By touching something with her bare hands, she gets a complete download of the object's history. Clairsentience
- Highly sensitive to the world around her, she is able to sense the emotions of others but not affect them. She knows when someone is lying. She gets hunches or feelings that turn out to be accurate, though maybe not the way she or others expect. Perhaps they are effects of her other gifts but sometimes she has premonitions of what the immediate future holds and can get a sense for the history of an area. She is an uncannily good guesser and seems lucky. Eidetic Memory
- Cassandra's brain seems to be able to store the things she sees so she'll never forget.Shield
- Her mind isn't impenetrable but it's going to give whoever is trying to sift through it a major headache. And no one but her can pull those memories of things she's seen out.Brief Bio:
Cassandra D'Arque was born to Henry D'Arque III, the owner of D'Arque Industries, a company that manufactured supplies for the medical and scientific community. He inherited it from his father, who had inherited it from his father who had built it from the ground up after starting with only ten dollars to his name upon his immigration. Her mother, Elizabeth was from an old, once powerful family that had fallen on hard times.
It was actually a love match and it broke Henry's heart when Elizabeth died in childbirth. He never remarried. And truth be told, he was a little disappointed that she'd given him a daughter. However, Cassandra got every luxury money could afford. Nothing was too good for Henry's future heir.
The dreams and seeings started when she was about five. Her father kept her extremely sheltered and the staff got huge raises to keep her eccentricities quiet. The media wondered why the child was never seen and there were all sorts of vicious rumors tossed around. Cassandra hasn't told anyone the truth about any of the allegations. Private tutors replaced the nannies at that point. She rarely saw her father.
Years passed. Things didn't get better and there was nothing she could do, no one she could talk to about the things she saw. It was a heavy burden on the young girl who had learned quickly not to share the things she saw or learned. At least she could wear gloves... As she continued to grow up, she grew more and more fed up with her father's protectiveness.
At the age of 14, she'd never once left the grounds of her family's estate. There was a world out there she wanted to see, be a part of, and she wasn't able to. She never could manage to get past the security to run away either. Of course that same security kept out the media.
Henry finally allowed her some modicum of freedom when she was 16, taking her on business trips and basically letting her go wherever she wanted... but not unescorted of course. Photographs of the girl were rare and highly prized. Her strange fits meant she needed someone there to make sure no one tried to steal from her or anything when she was out of it.
By the time she was 18, she had about two years of college credit under her belt. Cassandra was accepted into MIT. Much to her father's chagrin, she joined Alpha Phi. The paparazzi respected her privacy... to a degree. On campus meant she was off limits but otherwise... Unlike some of her sorority sisters, she focused on her studies and getting involved on campus rather than having a good time. She graduated magna cum laude two years later.
No one had figured out about her gifts, though it wasn't hard to know there was something different about her. The gloves and sunglasses were a fashion statement as far as the rest of the world was concerned. Her father told her of his diagnosis shortly after she started working towards her MBA. He had lung cancer and wasn't expected to live much longer. So it would be up to her to take over the company. Cassandra wasn't sure that was what she wanted but something made her agree.
After finishing her program, her father retired after helping her assume control. Thankfully the transition was smooth and Cassandra found herself enjoying her work. There was more media attention on one of the world's youngest and most influential CEOs than ever. Years of practice had given her some tricks to steer others away from the truth.
Her father passed away about four months ago, right about the time she decided to open a new plant in Seattle, WA. Cassandra never got the chance to tell him she was pregnant and no one else knows yet either. She moved to Washington to oversee the opening and such, make sure everything was in order with the port. This is about the time the Oracle appeared, delivering information and pointing people in the right direction. She's young, successful, and wealthy, owner and overseer of a company with a stellar reputation. But what the future holds isn't something even she is certain of.Occupation:
CEO/President of D'Arque IndustriesMarital Status:
Expecting twinsOther Relatives:
Father- Henry D'Arque III, deceased
Mother- Elizabeth D'Arque, deceasedPersonality:
Cassandra comes across as a very sophisticated, charismatic woman. And she is. She is intelligent, well-traveled, and has a good sense of humor. However, there is something very odd about her. The woman has strange fits at random intervals and she seems to have a hard time relating to certain things. Most are willing to forgive her her quirks those though, as she is pleasant enough.
She never has been like the others. Her gifts mean she is privy to information she shouldn't be. It meant she had to grow up very quickly. Cassandra is good at playing the part, being whatever she feels she needs to be, and putting up a front but under the polished veneer is a woman who has never seen the world around her the way others do and never will. This means there is a disconnect between her and reality.
A philanthropist and patron of the arts, she's known for being very generous with her vast resources. She is altruistic and compassionate, willing to do whatever she can to help her fellow man. After all, you've only got one life to live and she doesn't want to waste a minute of it.
There is something frenetic about her energy. She doesn't do anything by halves. Strong-willed and determined, she'll do what she's set out to do. No matter what. The public knows her as a generous woman who is a passionate advocate for all sorts of good causes. Her peers know her as an eccentric, urbane blueblood. The truth? Only she knows. Underneath the warmth is a coldness. No longer a believer in the basic goodness of mankind, she's cynical, Machiavellian, and ruthlessly practical and efficient. The end justifies the means every time in her book.
The Oracle is a mysterious figure that no one knows much about. Only a very few know how to get a hold of the Oracle, who at least one step ahead of anyone wanting to find out who she really is. Her aid is not for sale. Usually she's on the side of the good guys and doing what she can to see that people have the information they need to make the world a better place. It's the usually part that is concerning... Distinguishing Features:
Cassandra is rarely, if ever, without a pair of sunglasses or gloves. For fancy occasions she may forgo the glasses but never the gloves. There is a birthmark on her left hip that looks like a sunburst. Her pregnancy is also starting to show.Height:
