Fiction Friday - Electric Sonika

Background and Origin:  Her place of birth was a rural village or hamlet, a tiny collection of huts and farms. She was kidnapped at an early age and raised a virtual slave, brainwashed to obedience to the cult leader, with the intention of taking over the world.

The cult leader had a way to detect latent mutsnt children.  He kidnapped her and hoped to use her as breeding stock, since her powers were very weak. The hormonal changes of pregnancy cranked her powers way up, but also altered her brain chemisty. She lost the baby, and the combined trauma shattered the conditioning and she successfully escaped the cult.

She has a  younger brother that she has lost touch with.

She has experienced the following important events:
  • She made a friend, a teacher, religious advisor or mentor. They are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things, but had devastating impact on her life;
  • She performed a vital task for a religious figure and they are in your debt. The third in command of the cult that raised her;
  • Dhe became indebted to a group and must repay them in some way, financial or otherwise;
  • She suffered a major financial loss, losing almost everything;
  • Oops, pregnancy! She left your partner behind.  The 

Combat Tactics: She has an aggressive offense, reveling in the adrenaline rush of her own powers. She usually doesn't run for cover until she's been hit once or twice, then survival instincts might override adrenaline.

She loves to screw with her enemies’ heads, so grabs control of any electrical Gear as soon as she identifies it. The fact her control power isn't obvious adds to the confusion.

Personality Traits: She is impulsive and temperamental, so rarely stays employed long, despite her power. She spends money as fast as she gets it.

Appearance: 5’7”, 135 lbs, completely hairless.

Powers: She can generate and manipulate electricity.

Notes: Model Nadya Sonika. Character by I. A. Riley, January, 2018

This should be pretty obvious. The artwork inspired the character, then I maxed out Lightning Control, using the leftover CP to even more max out Lightning Control.
