Fiction Friday - Aberrant Dino-Woman

Morrigan Viivi Donaghue

Background & Origin: She was born in the Netherlands, and abandoned during childhood. She grew up a ward of the state. She has been on your own for as long as she can remember. As far as she knows, she is an only child. She has not been able to locate her parents, or any relatives at all.

She has experienced the following important events:

  • A beloved pet died, leaving her grief-stricken;
  • A long-term relationship ended when her partner broke up with her without reason;
  • Exposure to a disease-laden environment toughened her immune system.
  • She fell in love and thought about marriage. Her thoughts become reality and she got hitched;
  • Word of her deeds spreads, and she gained fame or notoriety.


Combat Tactics: She transforms to a velociraptor, with larger (more useful) forearms, and fights viciously.


Personality Traits: She has a mental disorder in that she is convinced her powers derive from the magical powers of her facial tattoo, and nothing can convince her otherwise. If the tattooed is somehow destroyed, she probably will mental block and be unable to use her powers.


Appearance:  She has short, braided hair. She favors clothing that blends with the local styles, changing at need.

Powers: Like all novas, she has a special lump of tissue in her brain that allows her to collect, channel and manipulate quantum energies in science fiction-like ways.  This typically manifests as a kind of self-image.  In her case, she can transform into reptile and dinosaur forms.

Notes:  Model unknown.  Character by I.A. Riley, March, 2016.
