Description

ImageImage
Name: Lily Moore
Age: 23
Appearance: 5'9, 120lbs, Brunette, Blue-eyed
Hero or Villain: Villain

Powers:

Primary power: Technopathy - An ability to control and communicate with technology via telepathy or telekinetics

Secondary powers:
Superhuman Intellect - More intelligent than most people, an intelligence quotient above genius.
Memory Manipulation - Able to muddle or enhance people's memories, including keeping herself out of people's memories or enhancing her own memory. She can manipulate, read, or change longer periods of memory with extended periods of interaction with people.
Precognition - Lily can sense impending danger, and sometimes see the future. The efficacy largely depends on whether or not she's actively paying attention.


An Almost Fatal Occurence - Lily had graduated top of her class in High School and received a full-ride scholarship for engineering. She worked tirelessly, finishing her PhD at only 21 years of age. Shortly after she was hired on to work for a government project working with Directed-energy weapons. It was there she was introduced to the ASURA project, or the Anti-Super Unit Retaliation Apparatus. The Project had been named after the Asura Lords said to be stronger than all of humanity, super or not. The project was a portable plasma weapon, designed to be manufactured to combat super-humans should the need ever arise. Only a few months into the project, Lily learned the hard way that the mortality rate on the project was well over acceptable levels. The power-bank malfunctioned and the ASURA device threatened to overheat and explode. People began evacuating, but Lily knew the resulting explosion would exceed 15 kilotons of TNT, leveling everything within the valley. There was no running, and not being religiously inclined in anyway Lily got to her knees and literally begged the God-like Asura to spare her life. While no Gods answered her call the ASURA project did; halting the explosion and exploding the power banks which were located towards the exterior, taking many of her fleeing co-workers with them, but sparing her.

So begins...

Thought the ASURA project was shut down, what Lily learned there was invaluable in starting her empire. Now Omnitech Industrial was one of the largest manufacturer of robotics, military weaponry, and experimental technology in the nation. As Owner, CEO, and President in the company, it kept her busy. In order to keep her free time, well, free Lily put together a board of directors, which she was regretting wholeheartedly right now.

The meeting was to discuss Omnitech Industrial robots going on a crime-spree and what to do about it. The official press statement said the robots were stolen from a shipment by an unknown third-party and had been hacked into and reprogrammed, in order to hurt the company's reputation. Super-powered crime was on the rise, and these automatons were supposed to keep the public safe.

Lily knew it was a lie, she had released the drones herself. The damage they caused would be repaired, of course, by Omnitech Industrials, and the bank data they retrieved would be used to route money eight-different ways until the trail was untraceable before being re-deposited in one of Lily's private off-shore accounts. Plus, it was excellent combat data about how they could be improved.

One of the board members stood up screaming, "Twenty-two were murdered by a Super just last night! Our Drones could've prevented that!" He slammed a hand on the table, emphasizing his distress.

Having had enough of her own facade, Lily stood and addressed the board.

"Board, the solution is simple. We send hunter-drones to deal with the stolen units, all at our own cost, and reap in the good publicity. If you have any more pressing concerns, please find me in my workshop. Don't call me up here for trivial news stories anymore. Things get stolen, people die; we live in a world of super-powered weirdos who think they can live like they aren't one of us, it's inevitable."

She then took her leave, much to the chagrin of the board. Down in her lab, she found a report her computer had finished compiling. One that proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that people with powers were being recruited as heroes, by special training facilities.

"It seems I was right to keep my powers hidden... Can never be too careful..."

She mused in her private workshop for a while, mulling over the situation she found herself in, while sipping on coffee late into the night.

As Elle walked the card back and forth between her fingers, she stopped and reread it again. There was simply an address, no event, no name, no RSVP. Initially she threw the card away, but something about it compelled her it. So, there she sat in her car, pointed in the right direction, but not moving. She thought back to how she got the card. It was really quite mysterious given the fact that she had never told a living soul about her enhancements. Yet, this card came to her as though the person knew of her powers.

A few nights ago, she was awakened, by a whispered voice calling her name. At first it was startling, no one had said her name out loud since her family died, then she was curious who was calling her. With hushed precise motions she darted between outbuildings and sheds, through a hay field and beyond into the forest. The last time she heard “the voice” it gave her a riddle.

Beyond the woods
Over the creek
Spy a Red Oak
That’s where it’ll be

Nearing sunrise, she entered a field of sleeping daisies, and in the middle was the biggest Red Oak she had ever seen. High up in the tree and deep within was this card.

Snapping back to reality Elle put her car in gear and drove west towards the mysteries address. At first, she thought the GPS was leading her in the wrong direction (since she was in the middle of nowhere) when suddenly a massive building appeared in the distance. The abandon building looked like a warehouse or factory, but it didn’t look like anyone had been there in years. Elle drove up to the gate pressed the call button. She was actually surprise that there was a beep but then nothing. She pressed the call button again and this time held up her card for the dusty camera to see. Another beep was followed by a robotic computer-generated voice.

“Please place your card to the speaker and stand clear.”

As Elle drove through the gate a strange glimmer lite the sky and the once run down warehouse, was now a full running facility or some sort. A man dressed in black approached her.

“Miss Woods we’ve been waiting for you. Please park to your right and go in the double doors to the main office to finish your enrollment procedure.”

"What....what the hell is he talking about? Her confused facial expressions said everything her unspoken words did not.

"Miss Woods, do you understand me?" as he pointed to the parking at the right.

Mentally weighing the possibilities"I have two choices here......I could hit reverse and get the hell at of here as quickly as possible or park the car and see who has invited me here and what they know about my powers.

Although, the latter was clearly the most dangerous, Elle decided it was more dangerous that someone could know who she really was?

It's nice out here.

It was always nice in Lily's backyard, as far as she was concerned. Come rain, sleet, hail or snow, she always managed to relax back here; curled up with a book and a cup of coffee, it was impossible for her not to enjoy it. Her enormous estate had indoor gardens, but the way the outdoor flora perfectly framed the infinity edge pool that dropped seemingly into the ocean, there was no view that compared.

She sipped on her coffee, reading a few different books all at once. Six books about Action at a distance had been laid out on a table in front of her, she only moved the paperweights and flipped the pages of the books after each page had been thoroughly digested. Quantum pseudo-telepathy would certainly make her career a lot easier but it seemed like, for now at least, it was still out of her reach. A gentle sigh into her mug sent a cascade of steam rising into the air.

It's cold out...

Her thoughts were interrupted as a mechanical crow landed on her shoulder. The machine was Vantablack, virtually invisible against the dark night's sky. The little birdie had come to tell her what had transpired last night; that it saw a girl with shimmering wings of blue, ruthlessly murder a little over a score of people.

Perfect. I knew we couldn't all have been picked up by these so called "training facilities." Find her, give her this message.

Lily had found another at last, a super who hadn't been picked up by the enemy. The crow faithfully downloaded her message, cawing in agreement before taking off to spread the message to the other machines in its flock. One of them would see Blue Angel again, and when it did it would deliver the message in a carefully synthesized voice, as there was no sense in taking risks and using Lily's.

That message would read:

"A little birdie told me you were the Blue Angel. It's a shame one such as yourself should be bogged down in petty crime. If you'd like, I have something more suited for your talents. If this interests you, come to the Coastalia Transit Center at one in the morning. This job pays top dollar. If you're content dealing with drug-dealers and pittances of money, feel free to ignore this message."

The wind howled ominously, making Lily shiver. Her electric blanket clicked on with a thought and she cupped both hands around her coffee, taking a long sip and enjoying the warmth spread through her body.

Very cold out, indeed...

Chloe sat on the roof of her apartment building staring out at the city before her and sighed. Today had been rough... betrayed by someone she trusted... She had killed a Drug Lord... what the fallout of that would be she didn't know. it would be safe to lay low for a while..but sadly her current funds wouldn't allow that....

That was when Chloe noticed the odd bird. The creature came closer an odd move for such but then Chloe noted that this was no animal at all but a robot. About that time the bird bot spoke...

"A little birdie told me you were the Blue Angel. It's a shame one such as yourself should be bogged down in petty crime. If you'd like, I have something more suited for your talents. If this interests you, come to the Coastalia Transit Center at one in the morning. This job pays top dollar. If you're content dealing with drug-dealers and pittances of money, feel free to ignore this message"

Chloe wasn't sure what to think as the robobird spoke. "Who sent you?" She asked but the bird just flew off. Chloe didn't like this...who would be able to have such robots? But what other option did she have?

Chloe several hours later took to the early morning sky on blue wings until she got within a block of the Coastalia Transit Center. 12:50 am her phone's clock read, plenty of time to reach the Transit Center. As Chloe got closer she cast a shield over herself just in case this was another trap.

It was late in the afternoon. Lily was reading, in her backyard while enjoying the view, like she almost always did. Until one of her scouting robots landed on her shoulder. It ruffled its feathers, relaying what had happened in an instant.

Excellent, thank you.

The clock struck one in the morning, a nearby clocktower alerting the world to this fact. A stray bus, way after hours, pulled up to the transit station. The bus had at least two dozen vantablack crows sitting on it, and its sign read 'Blue Angel Express.' When it approached the stop, the door churned open, an android manning the bus blankly greeted the girl at the station.

"Greetings, Angel! W-w-we're expecting you!"

Four people sat inside, rows of seats between them, and all covered in metallic armor. They almost seemed robotic, an annoying synchronized breathing punctuated the air. When one inhaled, the others inhaled. When one exhaled, it was an annoying cacophony of modulated exhaling. None of the people moved, waiting for Blue Angel to take a seat.

It didn't take long for the first armored person to address Chloe. "You've seen the news, surely. We're the Deus Ex Gang, and this city is going to fall under our grasp soon enough." A second member of the gang approached Angel, continuing the pitch. "It's real simple, our hijacked drones assault a bank vault, tearing it up and blowing a hole in the roof." The third gang member sprinted from the back of the bus, throwing an arm around Chloe.

"Finally! You fly outta the vault, with millions of dollars. You get half of whatever the heist yields, no risk to you. We meet you outside the city to split the loot. Sound sweet?" All three of the people pitching the idea to Angel fell to one knee, belting out their last statement in unison. "What's more, we're prepared to offer you two hundred Gs as a down payment. We expect this job to pay WAY bigger dividends." All three gang members sounded alike, a weirdly modulated voice. The fourth gang member sat in the very back, staring out a window.

Try as Chloe, might, it was hard to remember the fourth person. Not that they were hazily in her memory, rather, when she tried to formulate that memory, it never took. The last person sat in the blind spot of her mind's eye, quietly listening to the deal being discussed.

Chloe raised a brow as the bus pulled up. Full of robot birds and some armored people calling themselves the Deus Ex gang. They went into a spill about a bank job making it sound like something so easy... Too easy....

Chloe could use the money sure but something seemed off to her. This was all sounding like a too good to be true type thing... Also something about the one in the back that didn't talk troubled her...she couldn't place it but something was off about that person...

"Sounds too good to be true...and in my line of work I don't trust too good to be true..." Chloe said. she then looked to the quiet one in the back. "And something..about you... No Deal until I know I can trust you... I'm not getting burned again."

Maybe this was foolish after all...

Blue Angel was smart, smarter than the average street thug, which was nice. Lily needed smart people if this was going to work, Lily didn't need tools, she needed kindred spirits. And she definitely didn't need these idiots who couldn't get results. With a click of a button, three hundred volts of electricity rendered the 'Deus Ex' gang unconscious.

The figure in the back stood up, her visage suddenly becoming clear and crisp. She was wearing a long black trenchcoat buttoned all the way up and a matte black helmet that obscured her head entirely. Her silhouette was only vaguely feminine, and when she spoke her voice was so heavily modulated as to sound almost entirely inhuman. "trUSt iS a TWo wAy StrEEt."

The figure stuck one hand into a trenchcoat pocket "mY naME is TECHnocRacy. F0R reaSoNS BeTTer leFT uNSAId, I CanNoT reveal My true NaTuRe to YOU." Then the bus-driver spoke, turning around to address Chloe, and taking his eyes off the road, but continuing to drive quickly and efficiently.

"We planned to have one androids do it, but we can let you in on the real money. Plug this USB into one of the bank's backroom computers, it will steal all the information the bank keeps on it's clients. The USB will be inconspicuous so you can escape quietly into the chaos. This electronic information is worth more than one can physically haul out of a bank, and as such we're willing to pay you two hundred thousand untraceable American dollars. Return to the same bus-stop to drop it off once you get it, and we'll give you a half a million more for your efforts." The android held a flash drive into the air with one hand, then turned back around, pretending to drive.

The vaguely female person in the black mask sat back down, not far from Blue Angel and gestured for her to sit next to her. A long moment of quiet passed, as the city raced by through the windows. Then the modulated voice started back up without warning. "AlsO, YoU cAN'T bE SeEN, aS I ExPecT to emPlOy You AgAIN. The figure cocked its head and inclined it slightly towards Chloe. wE CouLD Save ALOT of PeOPLe, aNd GeT rICH doiNG iT. ConSiDeR ThIs A T-T-TeST. MiGHt be WoRTH YoURE Time. Silence pervaded the bus for just a few seconds, then the bus lurched to a stop, right outside the same closed Transit Center.

The androids voice piped back up, splitting the silence, "Th-Thank you for riding Coastalia Express." It moved one of its hands, clenched around a USB in a robotic wave.
