Not if you’re Tobias, however. Turned out he wasn’t real, and neither was anything from his world. His entire life, nothing but a dream within a dream. A last fragmented hope, cast out into infinity and against all odds, rewarded. He doesn’t know where he was for a while after he…went away? What do you call it when you almost cease to exist? Anyway, the next sensation he knew, having lacked even the ability to think, was the water around him. The beach, near Koror. He was back, somehow. Yasmine was here. And was she wearing short shorts? Because wow. He had no idea she had such a nice butt. Tobias doesn’t have any powers, making do with athleticism and the (formerly) borrowed sword Ohana. His athleticism, however, is somewhat ridiculous. Casually wall jumping. The various problems humans ran into underwater (cold, pressure, the need to breathe) minimized. Faster and higher jumping than most people, even underwater. (Comments removed for repetitive content. We know he’s wonderful and you love him, Yas. You don’t need to say it 50 times.) -Yas Tobias is back. Some kind of magic thing. I don’t really get it, but it’s good to see him again. I didn’t think too much of him at first, but at the end he was my friend and it hurt to see him fade away like that. I mean, we all knew it might happen, but I dunno…maybe we hoped it wouldn’t? Yas is over the moon, and I don’t blame her. It’s just…everyone else on this tub has someone now. Yas and Tobias. Portia and Coyote. Laki has some girl on the internet. I’m pretty sure Sione’s seeing someone every time we stop back in Koror. And of course, my bro’s hopeless love for Yas. I’m the one left out. The only one not in some kind of love. I…I don’t think I like it very much. -Rikki Tobias. Hmm. I don’t have a lot to say. He makes Yas happy. He’s good with his sword. And he’s pleasant enough to be around. I can see how Yas fell for him. They’re pretty similar. In fact, with him here as a reference, I can see where Yas changed herself to be more like him. Of course, with that in mind, I can see where he’s picked up some of her traits, as well. It’s interesting. He’s a good addition to the team. Even if it’s getting a little crowded on the ship these days. Oh, and now I know how the others felt about my relationship with Coyote. The walls ARE thin on the top deck. -Portia, the Dark Sword

The team doesn’t believe it, but this is the real Coyote. The trickster spirit of old. He was never a god, and refuses responsibility for what silly humans think. He met the team during a visit to Singapore. For a Native American animal spirit, he really gets around these days. In short order, he’d charmed Yas into his good pal, Rikki half senseless, and Portia out of her pants. The boys didn’t like it at first, but he charmed them, too. Portia absolutely refusing to let the best lay of her life get away from her without a fight did, of course, play a role. The stories paint Coyote as the vicious and cruel trickster. He says Raven (the other trickster of the tales) changed some of the stories, but not all. Of course, Coyote in the stories was a notorious liar… Coyote’s abilities aren’t that special. Kind of a generic canine totem. He can speak just about any language. And his charisma is incredible. Of course, he’s the best liar the vast majority of people will ever meet. To the point where even those who are expecting him to lie can easily be taken in. He’s just as capable in a straight fight as Portia, however he vastly prefers to talk things out. His strangest ability is multi-existence. Apparently there’s several Coyotes around the world. They’re all different people, and not just duplicates. They’re all still him, but different in subtle ways. He says being an animal spirit isn’t anywhere near the same as being a human, and that’s why he can do that. It seems to be true, as the Icon Marian Soaring Eagle knows a Coyote that isn’t quite this one, there’s the one that’s a rockstar in the UK, and then there’s that businessman in India… Coyote here. I know, you’re used to the ladies talking about the crew here…but let’s be honest. They’re just going to say two things. That I don’t seem to be a bad guy, as I’m making Portia a happy woman. And the second, I’m a notorious liar and can’t be trusted. Both of these things are true. Well, Portia might add something about how she’s fallen completely in lust with me. But that’s not anywhere near family friendly. You see, I am a liar and a trickster. It’s my whole gimmick. But unless you’re really good there isn’t much way to tell whether I’m lying or not. I could be lying right now. Maybe I’ve been lying from the start. Maybe I haven’t said a word that’s untrue in years. Can’t tell, can you? See? But that’s the fun part of dealing with me. The uncertainty. -Coyote I don’t know what to think about Coyote. He isn’t a traitor by nature, but that doesn’t mean he’s pledged his loyalty to us, either. Honestly, it’s really confusing and the fact that he’s so darn charming doesn’t help at all. For now, he’s kind of on our side. Unless he isn’t. I don’t know. At least Portia’s happy now, even if that relationship has nothing else going for it but the physical. The walls are thin on the top deck. Everybody hears. -Yas Coyote is a slippery, duplicitious jerk, but he’s not evil. I mean, he’s spent millennia practicing how to be just enough of a friend to get what he wants without actually taking anyone’s side but his own. I want to hate him, but his voice makes my insides go gooey. Man, I thought I was above letting pretty people off the hook, but I guess not. Portia is a lucky woman. I’m so jealous. I’m not skinny, Coyote! -Rikki (Comments removed for being too graphic in nature.) -Portia, the Dark Sword

    Bringing Things Up To Date This is awkward. We…kind of saved the world. Again. It’s a good thing, but man was it some work. There was this massive killer robot, an angry ghost, and a whole lot of the past still coming back to haunt us all. But we did it. Best of all, we picked up a couple new members of the team. Coyote likes to pretend he’s not one of us, but he’s living on the ship and he always seems to show up when we have a big fight. But it’s the other one that makes me so happy I could explode. I don’t know how, but Tobias came back! My hopes, my dreams, and my prayers, all answered. It’s been a good week. -Yasmine Sakaguchi Time doesn’t stop moving. Coyote, who claims to be the Native American trickster spirit, started “dating” (meaning repeatedly sleeping with and not a whole lot else) Portia and living on the Seawing. The team’s investigation into Tobias’s mysterious photographic reappearance led to stopping a ghost’s grieving rage from awakening an ancient combat mecha powerful enough to destroy the world. Well…the team did end up fighting it, but not anywhere near full power. With the mecha destroyed, the world was safe again from the mistakes of the past. As the team celebrated in Koror, the lost Tobias came swimming up from the beach. The lovers were reunited. Now two of the three main members have boyfriends. Alas, poor Rikki…

The Seawing is a technologically advanced aircraft able to fly at approximately Mach 13. It has just about everything the team needs to research a job. The ship technically belongs to Herman and Sione. It was (of course) Rikki who co-opted them and the ship into the artifact hunter biz. It has five small bedrooms, a small library, a tiny infirmary, and a central bar and grill for a kitchen on the top deck. The bridge and the engineering area take up the second deck. The gym, laboratory,workshop, and hangar compete for space on the open bottom deck. Our humble home. We spend a lot of time here. Even held a concert with the top of the hull as the stage once. Should probably do that more often. People like it when I sing. Maybe I have a future as a pop idol? -Yas I spend most of my time in the workshop, when we’re not on a job. Sometimes Laki and I have to dig into the engines for maintenance or a part’s burned out. Of course, this is when we’re not docked somewhere. Then sometimes I’ll hit the beach during the day. And there’s always the clubs when the sun goes down. -Rikki It’s the ship. I don’t know what you’re asking me. We live here, plan jobs here, and kill time between dock sites here. It’s home. I hadn’t had one of those for a few years, for various reasons. It’s…nice, to have one again. The gym had some good heavy weights for me. I think Rikki made them. Just when I think I know that girl… -Portia, the Dark Sword

Laki is the brains, Herman pilots the Seawing itself, and Sione is the navigator. Laki and Sione are brothers.They typically don’t get into combat if they can avoid it. Laki is a genius, a weirdo, and grade school age. Herman has all of his sister Rikki’s reckless nature, and none of her intelligence or speed. He’s also hopelessly in love with Yas, who is clueless. Sione is kind of a blank slate. He’s a chill dude, even in a crisis, but he’s one of those guys even people who know him well would have trouble picking out of a crowd. Laki is a good kid. He has our back when even Rikki gets stumped, and between the two of them they keep the Seawing in the air. He’s really responsible for his age, though. I worry about how he’ll be when he gets older, sometimes. Herman is Rikki’s wacky brother. The way he reacts when I talk to him is so funny. Without him, I don’t know how we’d ever get anywhere. He’s the best pilot I’ve ever seen. Sione…I don’t know, really. He navigates for us, but I can’t name anything special about him. He’s just kind of…around. Honestly? Sometimes I forget he’s there. Sorry, Sione. -Yas Laki is one of the few people who’s smarter than me. Used to make me mad, until I realized he’s a total weirdo. I don’t think he ever gets outta that suit of his. He doesn’t even talk that much. So that means I’ve still got being hot and a ton of fun on him. Okay…I do worry he’ll be a shut in when he grows up. Aunt Rikki won’t let that happen, nope! My brother Herman is a grade A doofus, but I love the big lug anyway. He has no chance with Yas, and on some level I think he knows it. Doesn’t make him stop pining as pathetically as possible. Okay, that was a joke. It’s…really sad, honestly. I know Yas, and she just doesn’t see my poor bro that way. Sione? Who’s that? I kid, again. He’s just a forgettable, generic dude. I know he doesn’t like it, but he doesn’t have any charisma or presence. Example? He was around a lot when Yas and I were savin’ the world, but neither of us remembered ever seeing him. I mean, we both even spoke to him back then. Oh, well. Sorry, Sione. -Rikki Those three? Laki’s smarter than all of us but doesn’t like to make physical contact with the world outside his mind. Herman is our pilot, and Rikki’s brother. He clearly adores Yas, and I think she knows but doesn’t want to break his heart with a proper rejection. I can understand that. Herman will be a good catch for some lucky woman, even if it is entirely too obvious that he and Rikki are siblings. Sione…I’ll be honest, I forget his name sometimes. He is our navigator, and Laki’s brother. There doesn’t seem to be anything special or interesting about him at all. Yas and Rikki speak to them more than I do, at any rate. They would have a better idea. -Portia, the Dark Sword

He is, as his name says, the king of all dragons. His power seeming lacking doesn’t invalidate that. He only has as much power as his summoner, and Yasmine (while among the finest at that magical art on Earth) isn’t nearly as powerful as Raheed. By the same token, the spell protects Raheed from actually taking damage. The spell itself absorbs the punishment, banishing him back to his own realm if he is ever defeated. Raheed is, well, a dragon. He’s massive, very strong, very tough, and can breath fire. As previously stated, these abilities aren’t nearly as powerful as they would be if he came through a dimensional portal instead of being magically summoned. However, he remains a nigh impossible opponent on the human scale and a dangerous one on the superheroic. Oh, Raheed? He’s my friend. Well, kind of. Heh. The way my magic works, I couldn’t summon him if we didn’t get along. I don’t really get it, but he’s decided he likes me. Dragons have a much different perspective than humans do, so I don’t always understand what he says. But he has my back in a fight, and doesn’t mind it when I summon him just to hang out. He’s more fun at a beach party (we have more of those than most people) than the boys on the ship. And with Herman’s antics, that’s saying something. He teases me about not being able to summon him at his full power, though. It’s a little mean. Other than that, we get along great. -Yas Look, I’ll badmouth Portia some. But the dragon? He scares me poopless. Like, literally. I always make sure I’ve hit the bathroom before we go on jobs, because one roar and my guts are looser than my morals. It’s not that he’s a bad pers-er, dragon. He’s a loyal ally and I’d rather have him at my back in a scrap than not. He’s just got the fangs, the fire breath, and…well…he’s not human. Not even a little bit. I never have any idea what he’s thinking. Burr. I think I have to…yep, bathroom time. ‘Scuse me. -Rikki Raheed is a king, and it shows. He is a noble and honorable creature. I’m glad Yas befriended him somehow. He’s a great fighter, despite his size. We’re a good team. And the way he makes Rikki nervous is always fun. I suspect he exaggerates the things about him that scare her for his own amusement. The thing that proves he is a good dragon, as opposed to the murderous ones, is how well he gets along with Yasmine. I think he finds her enthusiasm and determination as refreshing as I do. -Portia, the Dark Sword

She joined the military at eighteen and served locally. She was a part of a team training to defeat once and for all the great evil Yas’s journey was to seal. However, on their final training mission they stumbled onto a cavern full of spirits. The spirits drove everyone mad, and most of them died at the other’s hands. Portia survived, unbeknownst to anyone. She was a bit at loose ends after her recovery. The great evil was destroyed, and France surely thought she was dead. Sione, of all people, swooped in to offer the well trained (and after her cave experience, superpowered) soldier a job. Portia, until that day in the cave, was an more or less normal human being. Albeit one with elite military training. It was there that a hidden fragment of her DNA came to the fore. One of her ancestors was an actual demon. The energy of the cave activated the atavism, turning her hair white and her eyes red. Her strength and stamina vaulted upward. But most importantly, she could see through the illusions the spirits were throwing around. She escaped, but as she was badly wounded before the atavism triggered, tumbled into the ocean and was lost. After she recovered (thanks to some friendly fellow French Polynesians), she realized she had a sword. A black, seemingly indestructible sword that was sheathed elsewhere whenever it wasn’t in her hand. Thus was Dark Sword Portia born. She is the group’s muscle. When Yas and Rikki are having trouble hurting something, Portia can usually cut it. Portia is…well, she’s been hurt. And demonic atavisms don’t trigger on their own. She’s pretty closed off. I mean, she’s a friend. A good and loyal friend. But she doesn’t talk about her past. Or…anything, really. She’s very good at being quiet. She wears a LOT of black leather. She’s a responsible person. And that’s all I know about her, really. I want to help, but…she scares me, a little. It’s like she knows when I’m about to ask something she doesn’t want to tell me, and she just gives me a look with those red eyes. One day I won’t be put off by a look, and I’ll get through to what’s bothering her so much. One day. -Yas Portia? She’s an Ice Queen. Pro level, baby. At least, that’s how I like to think of her. I mean, I’m not an idiot. She’s got that same sad look in her eyes sometimes. The one that Yas had, after Tobias faded out. Portia’s not crying, and she gets done what she needs to get done. Heck, she even goes out to the nightclubs with me n’ Yas. But she never seems like she’s having as much fun as I am. Or anyone there, really. She’s lost something that mattered a lot to her, and she doesn’t want to let the hurt out. I just…I don’t know. I want her to smile when she’s not hurting someone. Doesn’t seem right to me, to only smile when you’re doing the violence and aren’t a serial killer. It’s weird. -Rikki Me? I hit things. With a big black sword. Sometimes with my fists or my feet. When I don’t need to hit things, I kill time until I need to hit things again. Sometimes I threaten to hit things so I don’t have to hit things. I’m not a complicated person. At least, not anymore. -Portia, the Dark Sword

She stumbled into Yas’s journey to seal a great evil by accident, and then teamed up with Tobias to stop Yas from sacrificing herself. Her efforts were key in destroying said evil forever. Afterward, she found stuff to do until stumbling (again) onto the photo in that ruin. She brought it to the just about done grieving Yas, and the rest is history. Rebecca Heskett is a tech genius. She’s also a low level speedster, and a trained thief. She has her specially made daggers for melee combat, and her grenades for range. Aside from that, she’s an unpredictable, reckless combatant. Often she brings her latest prototype to a mission. This does not always go well. Her role is both recon and field tech support. She’s the one who gets doors open and puzzles out mechanisms. My cousin? She’s a whirlwind of energy. She’s really, really smart. But she makes bad decisions all the time. It really worries me. She’s always in a bikini, unless it’s too cold. She drinks too much, and she’s always going off with some guy she just met. She should really be more careful, but then I guess she wouldn’t be Rikki. She’s about two years younger than I am, but I think she’s lived twice as much as I have. I’ve got some catching up to do, but I think I’ll do it my way. -Yas Oh, yeah. My turn. Look, I’m awesome. I’m smart, I’m hot, and I love having fun. If this was an anime, I’d be Best Girl. Hands down. Only Ice Queens like Portia don’t dig all of me. But you know…there’s more to me than that. I mean, I was raised to be a techie. I love nuts and bolts. Making things work is my passion. I’m always workin’ on something. The Seawings wouldn’t know what to do without me. The hot part, well, you can’t see me or it’d be obvious. I mean, if you’ve got it, show it off. That’s what I say. And why I got Yas into those shorts. Girl’s got a great booty, you know? Having fun, aside from time in my workshop, is hitting the clubs. Bangkok and Hong Kong have some fierce places, and Singapore knows what a good time is, too. And even if a place is having an off night, I can always find a cute boy to carry me off. Though if I start listing my favorites we’ll be here all day. And I’ve got a killer idea for a new gadget for our next job. So, later! -Rikki Rikki is a cheerful, good hearted girl. With no respect for property rights, personal space, or anything that gets in the way of her whim of the moment. The shorts were a good idea, though. In fact, she has plenty of good ideas. What she doesn’t seem to have is any way to tell the bad ideas from the good ones. Which is why sometimes I have to use percussive correction. Heaven knows no one else around here will stop her from running wild. Not that I have to do it often. The threat is enough, most of the time. -Portia, the Dark Sword

She assembled her protectors out of her friends, and went off to sacrifice herself as generations of mages had. Only a young man named Tobias threw a wrench in that plan. He, being from what appeared to be another world, questioned everything she believed. They fell in love, and in the end, she questioned it too. Long story short, she was right to question, and their defiance of millennia of tradition led to the evil’s complete destruction. Only Tobias was forever lost in the process. Yasmine uses White Magic, which allows her to manipulate living bodily processes. She uses the healing aspect of this the vast majority of the time. However, when angered or disarmed, she’ll use it, no problem. She has recently learned how to summon beings again after sacrificing that ability to save the world. However, she can 1) only summon Raheed at this time and 2) cannot use her magic while sustaining his presence. Her pistols are enchanted and only inflict lethal damage if the user wishes. Yas functions as both the leader and the heart of the group. People just tend to like her, and her localized fame as the one who destroyed the destroyer doesn’t hurt. Me? I guess we can start there. I mean, how to describe yourself? I’m good natured. I try to be kind to everyone. Heh. Honestly, I’m pretty much a cliché good girl. Noble, heroic, self sacrificing, that sort of thing. Hmm. At least, I was that way. I think travelling with Rikki and Portia has corrupted me. Or maybe I’m just growing up? I mean, I did spend almost the first eighteen years of my life on an island with barely ten thousand people on it. Now I’ve seen Paris at night, visited the Taj Mahal, and had a Coney Island hot dog. It was tasty, but I’ve had better meals. The world is a lot bigger than I thought it was. I’m learning new things every day. Like how comfy denim short shorts are. Why did no one tell me? -Yas My cousin’s still too much of a sheltered goody goody. Totally Lawful Good, but I’m workin’ on that. Those shorts? My idea. Soon enough, I’ll get her laid. Can you believe she’s still a virgin? Legally allowed to have anyone she wants, and she still hasn’t made a move. Uh oh, Portia’s frowning at me again. Gotta go. -Rikki Yas can do as she pleases. Interfering with that is asking to get hurt, Rikki. We’ve talked about this. Yas is…a good girl. Kind, compassionate, and not nearly as much of a doormat as she might seem. She’s been a good influence on me. I was…in a bad place, before I met her. Now, things are better. -Portia, the Dark Sword

    The Seawings Where We Started From A year ago, my friends and I saved the world, at the cost of the only man I ever loved. I was…not all right for some time after that. Until Rikki brought me an impossible photo of Tobias, taken long after he ceased to exist. Wearing an outfit he’d never worn, in a place we had never been. She had found the photo in an ancient ruin, which was a heck of an odd place to find a photo. To find the truth, I have joined my cousin’s company and, to my surprise, learned I was more or less in charge. It’s a lot of fun, being an artifact hunter. Even if we get into more trouble with the law than I’d like. -Yasmine Sakaguchi The Seawings are a group of outlaw artifact hunters. They raid tombs and ruins for ancient artifacts. They work for various museum groups, random archaeologists with good cash flow, and the odd weird rich guy. They mainly work in Eastern Asia, but have popped up globally. They are generally considered heroic, as while they often break the law in their business endeavours, they always protect lives and livelihoods to the best of their abilities. Even if it means botching a job, saving lives is always more important. And it should go without saying they oppose all of the more unethical and/or violent treasure hunting groups. With that said. They are wanted criminals, having stolen and trespassed in virtually every country worldwide. Their relations with proper heroes are strained at best, aside from alliances born out of necessity. They are pursued with less vehemence than most criminals due to the above items and that the original items are often either 1) stolen to begin with or 2)full of mystical or demonic powers that should NOT be in some random rich guy’s hands. No matter how gifted of a magus he thinks he is. Roll Call! Yasmine (Yas) Sakaguchi Rebecca (Rikki)Heskett Dark Sword Portia (Portia Rousseau) Raheed the Dragon King (as summoned by Yas) Laki Sigrah, Herman Heskett, & Sione Sigrah Coyote (unofficial member) Tobias

He grew up poor, but it did provide plenty of space to practice once his powers emerged. As an adult, he moved to New Orleans as soon as he was able. He put his power to work in the underworld, and soon caught the attention of the local assassin’s guild. They recruited him, training him, and then he betrayed them by going into business for himself far, far away from anything resembling Louisiana. He spent years in deserts, tundra, and anywhere that wasn’t sea level (and below) swamp stuffed full of French and pseudo French speaking people. Obviously, he did not spend any time in France (and very little in Belgium or Switzerland). However, after a while he grew homesick and returned. The guild was in disarray, the police and FBI having stepped their respective games up in Stefan’s absence. He was a man at loose ends, at least a little. So he took a new job. Long term, good pay. It even had benefits. All he had to do was basic security work for a certain Academy. Thus, he came to work for Carlos Javier. Stefan’s power is kinetic energy generation and control. Typically for a Phoenix Mutate, this doesn’t sound flashy. Anyone can generate kinetic energy simply by moving around. However, unlike anyone else, he can concentrate it in crystal shard form. When thrown, these shards release all of their energy at once in an explosion. The larger the shard, the larger and more damaging the explosion. There seems to be no limit to this, however Stefan does not know he can make himself immune to his own explosions. Thus he does not use his power to the fullest extent. Stefan is handsome and charming, despite having the soul of a born killer. He is in no way a good or noble man. It could be said that he is a borderline sociopath, but as he has not been professionally assessed, the truth of this is unknown. What is known is that he is a consummate ladies man. He is the bad boy all the women fall for until they realize they have no real future with him. He sails along, doing more or less as he pleases. The job is to keep the campus secure and assist the contracted security company when necessary. So he is a common (if bored) sight around the Academy, and thus half of the female student body (and selected members of the male portion) are desperately in love with him. Not that he returns their affections. He wasn’t interested in children when he was one, let alone now. He is a mostly amoral man with enough self restraint to function in society. No more, and no less.

She got older, her powers emerged, and she became a spoiled rich young woman who had inherited Daddy’s money. At which point she met Carlos Javier, and became one of his first students. There was no love affair, she did not become particularly enraptured by his goals (heck, he didn’t even tell her), and neither was she all that impressed with him to begin with. However, she did learn to control her powers properly and even delve into the limits of what she could do. This would have led to a criminal record for someone with a lesser power or intellect, but Monique made it through with her public image unscathed. Although the supervillain “Monique” is wanted by Interpol and the FBI (for some reason she didn’t operate in Canada) for various thefts. Some of which were quite brazen, and others only a calling card was left behind to indicate the perpetrator. Bored with supervillainy, and already rich beyond needing to work, Monique needed something new to do. She heard about the Javier Academy, and offered up her Doctorate in Behaviorial Sciences. Javier hired her right away. Monique is a Phoenix Mutate with the power of shapeshifting. At first, it appears that she has set forms each with different abilities. However, this is not the case. Monique has direct control over her molecular structure, and can alter it to suit her whim. She does not, however, change her brain or nervous system even though she is capable of doing so. Thus she does not turn into liquid, a gas, or even incorporeal. This is due to her own fears of damaging her mind in the process. The three forms she most often displays are the ones she prefers, not the ones she is limited to. What she cannot do is mimic energy based or psionic powers. However, in the purely physical realm there is no theoretical limit to what she can shapeshift into, and she is aware of this. Therefore, from time to time she pulls out something new and different than the traditional three. Monique is…well…mean. A jerk. The Wicked Witch of Quebec. She’s blonde, she’s rich, she’s gorgeous, and above all she’s Better Than You. Not that she’s rude. Oh, heavens forfend. She’s a perfect lady on all occasions. With that said, she does care. Full of compassion and charity for the less fortunate. After all, it’s not their fault the world could only manage to bring forth one Monique. It’s only natural everyone would fail to measure up after she arrived on the scene. Tragic, oh so tragic, but natural nonetheless. With all that stated, she’s an oddly effective therapist. Her few patients before joining the Academy admit that she’s a world class Mean Girl, but that doesn’t make her observations less perceptive or her questions less insightful. She’s noticeably less cruel to those in crisis or suffering from serious trauma, to the point where she can seem to be genuinely kind. However… therapy is work. Self care is work. Those not willing to put in the work to help themselves will always get the sharpest edge of her tongue. Laziness will never be tolerated in Monique’s office. Her various houses and condos are, however, an entirely different story.

The Starpowers are copied over during intimate contact with one’s true love. Specifically, “a moment of true happiness” is the moment the effect occurs. However, in Jody’s case something didn’t go quite right and thus she isn’t as powerful as the others. She has two children who inherited the Starpowers but are too young for serious superheroics named Jack and Jessica. She mourned Jesse for quite some time, but eventually realized it (for now) up to her to continue the Starfamily’s heroics. Her initial forays into solo heroics (as she’d worked with the much more experienced Jesse previously) …didn’t go well. To put it charitably, she had no talent for it, despite her powers. And there were but so many jobs a woman could get with little job experience (she adored being Jesse’s housewife) and a degree in oceanography. Dejected, she didn’t know what to do…until Carlos Javier offered her a job at the Academy. Now she puts her degree to work, and learns how to become a better hero. So she can teach Jack and Jessica, and the third generation of the Starfamily can be the greatest yet. Jody (obviously) isn’t a Phoenix Mutate. She has a fusion reaction in her heart, and the energy pulses through her entire body granting highly enhanced strength and durability. In addition, she is very fast (air or ground) and can rechannel the energy for strength into blasts of destructive energy. The Starpower, as it is called, comes from a far away galaxy and was sent to Earth by an alien species desperate for any fragment of who they were to survive, no matter how small. It so happened to land on construction worker John Thompkins in 1961 and he became the first Starman. Due to a quirk of his biology (he had slightly enhanced durability as a metahuman power without knowing), the speed and energy blast ability didn’t take. Instead, they jumped to his wife Judy the first time he touched her after being empowered and she soon became Stargirl (later Starwoman). Their children, Jesse and Jacqueline (Jackie), inherited both sets of powers and thus the Starfamily was born. Jody is, in some ways, a broken woman. She has lost the love of her life, a thing she thought was impossible. Now she raises two children on her own. She doesn’t smile anymore, or laugh without bitterness. She’s fought through grief to become functional for her children, but it’s continually surprising just how much she leaned on Jesse in ways both large and small. He was a larger than life, charismatic personality and his absence has simply left a gaping void that not even the passage of time seems to be able to shrink. With that said, this job is the first real break she’s gotten since he died. She’s going to do the best she can at it. And maybe, just maybe, lend solace to the wounded hearts in Delta Team.

He is Mind Incarnate, the soul of a cosmic being in a mortal body. The son of a Golden Age heroine, Frank has been this wise and intelligent since the day he was born. He could have gone into hero work, but it just didn’t seem to fit. Instead he did…not that much, actually. A little of this, and a little of that. There wasn’t really anything he actually wanted to do, really, aside from food, shelter, a small lab, and a materials fund. So he played the stock market and made just enough to accomplish those goals. He had the intellect to change the world and the wisdom to realize it wouldn’t change human nature one iota. So, obviously, he was seriously bored. Then Carlos Javier had a long term (and well paid) job for him and his twin sister, and that was that. He joined the staff of the Javier Academy. As previously stated, Frank is not a Phoenix Mutate. In fact, he’s arguably more powerful. If he sets his mind to it, he can do pretty much anything by either exerting his mind a little or building an assisting device. He’s already done this for combat purposes. A couple of weapons and a heavily armored suit get the job done well enough. He knows so much, it is easier to list what he doesn’t know. And what’s more, he understands just as many things. Frank is…well, lazy doesn’t quite cover it. The vast majority of the time, there isn’t any reason for him to actually do anything. So he does pretty much nothing, all the time. He calls it meditation, but rule one of interacting with Frank? He lies. He is neither as tired nor as pitiful a specimen as he seems. His entire appearance and persona are crafted to make sure nobody ever finds out how capable he is. This for two reasons: 1)They’d never leave him along unless he made them, and that is not the path of wisdom in the least; and 2) as previously stated he can change the world humans live in, but their essential nature will remain the same. Good and evil, in all their various gradations, cannot be eradicated from the human mind and heart. Thusly, any change in the world must come from the group as a whole and not just one man. Otherwise they won’t be anywhere near ready, and will probably manage to messily kill themselves. He is the single most infuriating teacher in the school, as being told to figure it out yourself (even in an indirect and/or cryptic manner) drives most of the student body nuts. Add to that the facts that he’s virtually unflappable and a killer bowler, and you have the most simultaneously adored and despised person in the entire Academy.
