Alexandria PowersAlias (Supers only):
34 (looks 25)Gender:
Resistance (Super-powered individual intending to actively engage SPECTRE)Registered with SPECTRE:
NIf a Super, List Powers:
Unbreakable. Her bones, organs (including skin), and muscles are all unable to be broken/ripped/or penetrated. Skills:Hand-to-hand Combat:
Alex is trained in Krav Maga and Bushido from her time in the military. Her time spent with Olivia has taught her a bit more about street fighting as well.Lock Picking:
Alex can pick old fashioned locks (from early century and even before) to more modern locks.Marksmanship:
Due to her time in the military she's an excellent shot with a rifle or hand gun. Due to her training with Olivia she's also become an excellent shot with the wrist shooters and throwing the shield.Equipment:Superheroine Costume:
Being Olivia's old costume, The Shield costume is a more modern version of the same nano-fiber suit that Alex wore back in Afghanistan. It appears, on the surface, to be a spandex material, but is extremely hard to rip, and there doesn't appear to be any zippers on it to take it off. Olivia had to have ways of shrugging off bullets since she's not quite as resilient as Alexandria. Basically it comes down to a suit that's just as resilient as Alexandria, it doesn't offer any extra protection for her. Wrist Shooters-
Along each of her wrists are three shields that resemble the large one she carries on her right arm. Each of the miniature shields are about the size of a sand dollar. They can be shot and ricocheted off of a wall or a car, the force is meant only to feel like someone of normal, but strong, strength hitting them with their fist. The triggers for these are on her hands, and she has back up mini-shields on her boots, but it takes time to reload.Shield-
Her shield is her most valuable weapon. It's made of a super strong alloy able to withstand impacts from bullets and blades alike. It dampens electricity and radiation attacks. Plus it can be thrown to ricochet and take out multiple targets with a single throw. Thrown correctly and her shield will come back to her.Lock-Pick Kit-
She has four of these kits hidden on her person. Two are in her gloves on her suit, not in the gauntlets that house the wrist shooters. There are also two on either boot, hidden in the thick sole. With a series of specific pressure activated points it will come loose and allow her to access the blades and the lock picks hidden there. Small Blades-
There are small thin blades hidden in her gloves like the lock picks, and also there are small blades in the kits on the soles of her boots. Where she can pick the locks of handcuffs or locks on a cell door with the lock picks, she can cut through rope or zip ties that bind victims with the blades.Weaknesses:Sensitivity:
While she's unbreakable, this doesn't mean she can't feel anything. In fact her nerves are a little more sensitive than they used to be. Nerves get worn down by wear and tear on the normal human body, given that hers can no longer have wear and tear, or normal stresses her nerves don't get worn down. This only makes her sense of touch slightly more sensitive.Blunt Force:
Due to her extra sensitivity she's actually more susceptible to pain than even a normal human might. Punches, kicks, baseball bats, chains, etc. all feel painful even if they won't leave lasting damage on her body. A kick to the crotch still feels like a kick to the crotch and will make it near impossible to focus on anything else. A good punch to the back of the skull will still daze her, or even possibly knock her out. The difference is that if she gets tossed off the space needle she won't go splat
at the bottom, just be knocked out for a good few hours.
Bullets and blades are also considered blunt force against her. Bullets may bounce off of her, but with it's small surface area, it hurts far more than anything else she's ever experienced. They also pack enough "punch" that they can knock her off her feet, or drive the wind from her. Similarly blades don't cut, but the tiny surface area makes it hurt like bitch. Almost like getting sliced open without the mess of blood and guts. While it means she can endure far worse than a normal human...it's also a double-edged sword. Torture is far worse for her.Need to Breathe:
She has to breathe still. Hit her in the gut hard enough and it'll drive the air from her lungs. Shove her face down in a pool of water and she'll drown. Stuff a pillow over her face and she'll suffocate.Drugs/Poison:
Drugs and poisons still affect her in much the same way as a normal human. The only way to administer said drugs that won't work is through injection (syringes and darts). However a cream laced with drugs will be soaked into her skin. If someone's cum were to have an adverse reaction through super powers, a simple rope across her butt would still soak into her suit, then into her skin. She can also be taken out with gasses, be it mace, teargas, knock out gas, or a simple chloroform soaked rag. Suit:
Despite appearances the suit does have a zipper, but it requires feeling for it rather than to see it on sight. Feeling with bare fingers across her back will reveal a barely-there ridge that when lifted will reveal a zipper that will pull down to the small of her back. Also when the suit gets wet from the inside it becomes stretchy in that area. If Alex is sexed up to the point of getting wet, it means someone could thrust up inside of her. An orgasm may wet her far enough back to be ass raped. This weakness in the suit's design isn't known to Alex or Olivia. It would have to be stumbled upon by accident.Brief Bio:
Alexandria Powers was born to a loving mother and father way back on September 22, 1982. Back then she never imagined she'd be where she is today, in the year 2079 and only 34 years old.
In the year 2001 she joined the military and quickly proved to be one of the most physical women that the army had ever come across. Many thought she might be the first woman allowed to be in the Rangers, but she never quite made it that far. She was assigned to a bomb squad after disarming a simple bomb with very little experience in the field. After training her group became known for disarming road-side bombs in Afghanistan.
Due to their recognitions they were rewarded with testing out a new nanofiber alloy that had been sewn both into their bomb-squad gear, but also were given skin-tight suits made of the same stuff. While the armor had been extremely expensive, the creators were convinced the military would buy it up like hotcakes. Alex's squad were the first to test it out since they often had to go into situations without much in the way of guns, had to concentrate in the middle of a fight, and ultimately had to put their lives on the line far more than their fellow soldiers. One wrong move and they wouldn't only blow themselves up, but their entire squad and possibly more.
The alloy itself never really had a name that anyone with an IQ below 160 could pronounce. Alex started calling it, unofficially, flex steel, due to the skin-tight suits that looked and flexed like spandex, but the ability to stop a bullet, or a shard from a grenade in it's tracks. Ultimately the suits would have worked, the company would have made billions, and the war on terror would have probably ended much faster.
However in 2008, shortly after Alex's squad received their "presents" from the U.S. Government they ran into a bomb specifically designed for them. It was a pretty routine call in of a road-side bomb. They arrived in their bulky armor, then things started getting hairy. Her team soon realized it was a far more complex bomb than they'd seen before. Alex made her way over, and quickly assessed that it was a nuke. She made the order to fall back, but before she could finish her sentence, the bomb exploded in her face.
When the woke up she was in a world she didn't recognize. The woman taking care of her said she'd found Alex nude in her living room after coming home one morning. Olivia Martin decided not to completely freak out, but to instead nurse the girl back to health.
As best as Olivia and Alex could piece together, the nuclear blast so close actually split Alex's body into a molecular state, fusing every cubic inch of her body with the nano-fibers that had been there to protect her. Olivia had been in her late forties when she found Alex old enough to be the girl's mother.
When Olivia had been in her late teens and early twenties she'd been a superheroine herself. Using her abilities (super agility and reflexes) to avoid SPECTRE and save people from themselves. She'd been an active member resisting the change that America had been going through yet as her body began to age, she also found that she hadn't been quite as agile as before, she couldn't dodge a bullet anymore, and she definitely wanted a family before she got to be too old. She hung up her tights and cape in trade for finding someone that she loves and started a family. Her own daughters aren't but a few years younger than Alex when Olivia found her.
It had taken about a year for Alex to get adjusted to everything, and to get caught up on about sixty years of history that she'd missed. The stories she heard from Olivia, the things she witnessed on the news. Things weren't good
in 2008, but they weren't bad
either. Not this bad, not this kind of government, not in America
. She also had to get a new identity (same as her old one, all of her family and friends had been dead for a few years at best, at worst several decades, no one would remember her face). They had to get papers for her, a job, and some way to spend her time.
Only after that year did she ask about fighting against SPECTRE. Olivia had been wary at first, she didn't want to throw some young woman into the throes of battle without proper caution. However as Alex persisted, Olivia finally relented and began training Alex in modern street fighting techniques, how to pick modern locks, and how to handle the shield and wrist shooters from her old suit.
After eight years, The Shield would live again, it had been nearly three decades since the red, white, and blue heroine had retired from a rather infamous pedestal in SPECTRE's eyes. Before, when Olivia had worn the suit, she became an icon pretty quickly. Something for people to believe in. However her decision to live to fight another day, her decision to ultimately start a family of her own, put the Shield on ice. At the time she thought forever, now she thinks that Alex might be even better
It wasn't until The Shield recently saved an older woman that had gotten herself into trouble with some local criminals that she realized this impact. The line of "You haven't aged a day" hit the now 34 year old hard. She had big boots to fill and hope to instill in a great many people. This is not
the way America is supposed to be, she's just got to remind everyone of the foundations of this once-great country.
The underground news circuits are beginning to become saturated with rumors of a superheroine willing to put on the tights, willing to wear the colors of red, white, and blue and fight back
. However, for now they're just rumors, she has a long and nearly impossible fight ahead of her...at least impossible without some help.Occupation:
Professional artist. She does portraits mostly to help out with the bills, but also does painting in her free time, some she sells for a hefty profit.Marital Status:
Olivia Hillary Martin. She's not a blood relative, but it's the closest she has in 2079 to a mother figure.Personality:
Strong, willful, determined, persistent are some very good qualities to have in a person. She's a smart woman with the determination to learn things that she doesn't know. Alex is very passionate about the way the country used to be, and everything she learns about SPECTRE makes her want to take it down more and more. Occasionally she comes off a little haughty, and a little bitchy, due to wanting nothing more than to complete the mission. However she's learning to curb it a little bit, offering smiles and reassurances to those that she saves. An attempt at being friendly. No one is going to follow someone that they don't like (not through respect anyway). Alex realizes she has to embody both aspects of what she believes America to be. Strong and undying, but also that sense of being courteous and helping thy neighbor and doing what's right
She has a U.S. Army tattoo on her left shoulder blade, a long, four-inch scar along her right, outer thigh, plus a small scar above her left brow, though it's mostly faded.Height:
205 lbs, she would be 185 lbs if her body hadn't fused with the nano-fibers.Build:
She's extremely athletic, curvy enough to still hold her feminine features, yet with muscles fit of a pro-athlete. Muscle does way more than fat, after all.Eye Color:
Piercing blue.Hair Color:
High School diploma. Military experience. IQ 146Other Info:
Alex still lives with Olivia in Seattle, Washington and trains with her every day. Despite wanting to move out, Olivia is possibly the only person more stubborn than Alex and won't allow her to leave. Alex insists that she's putting Olivia in danger, but no danger than Olivia hasn't been in before. Plus even with her papers being real enough to get a job, if Alex strikes out too much on her own, Olivia is afraid that Alex will be discovered of not being whom she says she is. Under it all, Alex still views Olivia as the only family she has in this time period, and Olivia cares for Alex like her own daughter.
