Age: 29 (DoB: 1988, January 8th)

Apparent Age: 29

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Caucasian
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 140

Eyes: Green

Hair: Black

 

Annie is a well in shape woman, short black hair, and green eyes. In civilian life she usually wears whatever is comfortable to her, generally a blue surplus jumpsuit from the Nolan Aeronautics hangar she works at with markings removed, or a T-shirt with some sort of aviation thing on it and blue jeans or shorts depending on the weather under a classic bomber jacket. Wears a classic motorcycle helmet with goggles when riding around on her motorcycle she restored from scratch with help from one of the mechanics at the hangars.

 

As Aviatrix she wears a high-tech blue suit with orange accents and high-visibility yellow vest and markings. She has a hood she covers her head with before putting her helmet on, hooking up the air supply from the suit to the helmet.

 

History: Anne had a rather boring childhood until her 10th year, while at a summer camp she had a strange moment at a Oregon summer camp's lake. She "sleep flew" over the lake, and when she woke up she fell in. At the time she wasn't the best of swimmer and luckily a counselor spotted her before she was in any danger. The trauma caused her to block out the incident, and the discovery of her powers. Her parents died when she was 12 in a car accident, although the reason behind the accident was a mystery to investigators. While living with her aunt she started on her path to become a pilot. Her Aunt was former Air Force, and helped her along the way, even helping her get her licence at 16, and getting her physically ready while Annie focussed on her studies so she could qualify for the officer's training she'd have to go through.

 

Her time in the Air Force went from one of some roughly fitting into the military life, to becoming a star among pilots. She almost didn't get out of training after one accident, although her quick reflexes allowed her and her instructor to eject, although he broke his neck during the ejection. Something that has stuck with her in seeing.

Once in actual service she served with distinction, assisting in defenses against various super-villains, sometimes getting shot down in the process. It was in defense against a Communion incursion in EC that she had her last ejection. By regs her fighter pilot career was over. It was either fixed wings with no ejection seats, or helicopters from here on. But due to her service she also qualified for a Honorible Discharge. She took the discharge, while she was still healthy.

 

She showed her credentials to Nolan Aeronautics and was quickly recruited after health screenings to ensure her rough life as a pilot hadn't degraded her ability to be a test pilot. Seeing she was at the peak of health, she was fast-tracked through training, getting into a team of other new pilots.

 

During the flight of one of the new pilots, someone Annie became quick friends with in a Jaime Calloway, a forgotten memory returned. As Jaime was testing a new engine in her aircraft there was a sudden, and catastrophic failure, Jaime ejected as per protocol, but her parachute didn't open properly when the seat fell free, causing her to spiral to her doom. But that was a doom denied. Annie blacked out standing on the observation ship. When she awoke she was floating next to Jaime in the water, freezing cold, but seeing her friend was quite alive and wondering just what Jaime did.

 

When Annie saw the video of how she willed herself to pull on the damaged chute and serve as Jaime's new parachute, she was floored. When the investigation in the incident showed not only industrial sabotage, but that the person wanted to take Jaime out, Annie swore she'd get the guy back somehow.

That was when Nolan Aeronautics made an offer. Jaime's combat training was still sharp and she was a natural investigator, with some polish and the use of a prototype flightsuit and gear, she could help the corporation in combatting future sabotage, that and a PR boon as a superheroine operating in Emerald City.
 
They gave her the name of a previous high-flying heroine from the pulp age who fought evil wherever it lurked with help from Nolan Aeronautics... The Aviatrix. Where things went from here, was up to Annie.

 

Personality & Motivation: Anne sees what she does isn't just a test of her ability, but also a duty which she is happy to fulfill as one of Emerald City's defenders. She's had a quick maturation from her competetive and wreckless days in the military, and her daredevil instincts as a test pilot before she gained her powers. She's careful, but willing to jump into danger when duty calls. The Daredevil in her has yet to be satiated.

 

Powers & Tactics: Anne loves to use her flight to increase her mobility in combat, even if it means "skating" by keeping only an inch or so off the ground. Using her hovering stance, she can tumble and dance in combat, or become evasive and wiggle out of trouble, changing her body's position making it difficult to hit her. Though her military training in capture avoidance makes her prefer to engage in ranged combat, although she's capable of getting in close.

 

Power Descriptions: Her suit is a well-engineered combat flightsuit, although it's cost and design disqualified it for use by the US military (AEGIS is still making it's decision), relegating it as a prototype to be considered for Nolan Test Pilots (to increase survivabiltiy of their investment), it's light and padded anti-ballistic materials allow her to take on most street-level thugs just fine, as well as provide life suppport. Her "sidearm" is a blaster weapon, one of a kind, that was designed as a sidearm for AEGIS pilots, able to convert from a blaster form into a night-stick like baton. She herself can alter her own personal gravitic field to fly, causing light to lens slightly behind her as she flies along.

 

Complications:

An In-House Cape: Annie as Aviatrix is jut as much an employee of Nolan Aeronautics as the other. So things like PR and job schedules do step in. 

 

"Nothing I haven't seen before.": Being former military, Aviatrix has a level of confidence that a civilian wouldn't. Although this can blind her to a potential problem when others would wisely consider caution.

 

"I look out for my family!": Annie considers the test pilots and support crew in Nolan Aeronautics as her family, and if one gets into trouble Annie is sure to get involved, particularly her significant other and test pilot, Jaime "Silk" Calloway (it was how she got into this whole predicament in the first place!)

 

"Crud! FLAMEOUT!": Sometimes Aviatrix's flight power will cut out. Since Annie developed her power well into her adulthood her brain as yet has to adapt to having powers. Which can cause awkward landings. She's dubbed these moments "flameouts".

Notes: I'm not sure how exactly to write out the baton mode on this.

Why not put the Attack Spec into the Device itself? 3PP will get you 5PP to spend, since it's Easy to Lose. 

 

Does she need all those Grapple feats with her terrible Grapple score?

A low Grapple score isn't even that bad of a thing, but if your character isn't a grappler, you shouldn't invest in grappling feats
 
 
 
Pretty much.
 
 
Asad is a great grappler, but he has super-strength.

I'm starting to think, considering that I have been struggling with this character for a year and things got sort of scattered, I think I'm going to take this character to be scrapped and start over with something else. Sunk Cost fallacy is... well it's a thing. Sorry guys.

 

Aviatrix won't take flight...

Moving this sheet out to Character Building.

 

We all know that feeling, Sailor. :) I've had a trickster build I've been poking at for more than half a decade now, off and on - sometimes it's hard to get the idea to gel properly, and sometimes it just takes time before things click. The sheet'll be here if you ever want to take another run at it.

Theme: "Sogno di Volare (Dream of Flight)" by Christopher Tin

Alternate Identity: Anne "Silk" Mistral (Public)

Birthplace: Oceanside, Emerald City, Oregon

Residence: Oceanside, Emerald City, Oregon

Base of Operations: Nolan Aeronautics Airfield

Occupation: Test Pilot, Nolan Emergency Aid and Response Member
Affiliations: Nolan Aeronautics, Nolan Emergency Aid and Response

Family: David "Gale" Mistral (55, Father, Now the Ghostworks Supervillain "Heatseeker"), Jane "Sunshine" Mistral (56, Mother, Declared Deceased), Jaime "Puffy" Williams (25, Significant Other, Junior Testpilot)

 

Description

Age: 28 (August 12, 1991)

Apparent Age: 28

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Human Caucasian

Height: 5'7"

Weight: 158 Lbs

Eyes: Green

Hair: Black

 

Levity has a physique like she works out regularly with a defined form, her skin a pale peach. When in "costume" she wears an advanced version of the flightsuits Nolan Aeronautics pilots wear, that is blue in color, with the vest kit and backpack and flight harness a yellow color that is high visibility, with reflective tape on the life preserver collar. The flightsuit has a hood that she pulls up over her head before putting her helmet on, which has a couple reflective tape stripes. Her flight helmet is the same shade of blue, which connects to the suit's private life support. The helmet's faceplate is mostly transparent, in a greenish color with a slight glow from the HUD system built into it that displays the current oxygen level, current flight speed, any data from flying an aircraft, status of any survival equipment built into the suit, it's integrity, and the status of the communication system.

 

When "out of costume", Anne wears a comfortable T-shirt, denim jeans, and well worn sneakers. When at work she either wears a Nolan Aeronautics blue business suit that has white trim, or a pair of coveralls (with break-away snaps so she can easily strip down and put on her flightsuit).

 

History: Anne always wanted to be a pilot since she ever knew about the subject, like her parents - both of whom were her idols. Both were employed as Test Pilots as Nolan Aviation. Her father, David "Gale" Mistral suffered an Ejection-related back injury that put him on pain medications and in a desk job training new pilots, while her mother Jane "Sunshine" Mistral a couple years later was declared dead when she bailed out over the ocean and wasn't found due to her rescue beacon malfunctioning. These two events didn't really sway Anne at all from becoming a pilot at 18, showing great promise in the process. Later getting in under her Father's sponsorship as a test pilot trainee, moving through the competetive environment until getting into the coveted military development division.

 

About a year ago, while on a "routine" test flight testing out Nolan Aeronautics' G11 VTOL engine, she was engulfed by a strange green light that knocked out her plane's flight systems and caused it to shut down losing control of it's dlight stabilization. She couldn't get it started again, and she was losing conciousness from G-forces as the plane started to lose enough flight speed to start to stall. She barely managed to eject over the Pacific miles off shore.

 

When she was rescued she was floating in the water, under her chute, barely responsive. Blood trickling from her nose.

 

While she was recovering at the hospital, strange things started happening... hovering over her bed, or causing objects to move erratically. Some of the brains at Nolan knew what was what... whatever zapped her plane, also caused subtle mutations, particularly ones that activated a dormant metahuman gene in her body.

 

After getting out of the hospital, and showing off her flight powers to her friends at the airfield, Nolan Aeronautics gave her a proposition. Being a Superhero wasn't something Anne thought she would be doing, but with the training she would recieve and the patronage of NA, it would provide an interesting change of pace, between her test flights of course.

 

It still puzzles her about her Father's recent disappearance, no one in the company would say what really happened to protect her father's pride: the gang at the airfield tried to give an intervention to him to try to help him with his addiction to painkillers, but he quit and stormed out... he hasn't been seen for the past 6 months.

 

 

Personality & Motivation: Anne is your classic test pilot personality, a hair-thread balance of reckless abandon kept in check with a by the numbers discipline. She'll toss out a heat-seeker of a joke or pun when the mood could use it, and seems to always face a challenge with a smile. As Levity, she tones down the more Alpha-nature of the pilot in her, showing a youthful exuberance combined with a kind heart.

 

Powers & Tactics: She generally prefers to engage the bandit at range, throwing out gravity pulses at her quarry, but if the dogfight closes to where she can clearly see the whites of their eyes, she is not above tripping them up with a wave of gravity or just kicking or punching them right in the face with a gravity chaser. If needed she can louse them up keeping them in spot as the gravity around them strengthens like they're the one pulling 9Gs.

 

Power Descriptions: Levity's Gravity attacks have a visual warping effect, like looking into a funhouse mirror, this effect is also apparent behind her when she flies forward, but hovering not so much.

 

Her flightsuit costume looks like it's made of a waterproof and rugged material, with smooth lines. Her flight harness and vest have a yellow color, with red beaded toggles for the life preserver and a hose in the middle of the vest that's connected to the life support unit on the vest on the side and a toggle for her parachute near her right shoulder next to the right breast of the life preserver unit. The parachute itself is flush against the back of her suit's vest section, allowing her to have it even in the cockpit of her plane as a spare chute, or use it on her own if necessary, made of a breakthrough memory film polymer.

 

Her personal jet, the "Peregrine" is an advanced tactical fighter, sporting a blue airframe with flourescent yellow leading edges making it look very much like a prototype test plane. It uses a swept-wing design, with forward canards to assist in tight and agile turns, allowing the plane to get to where she needs to go.

 

 

Complications:

9 to 5'er: Anne/Levity is an employee of Nolan Aeronautics. While Anne as Levity recieves patronage from NA, not to mention is part of Nolan Aeronautics' personal rescue unit, she has to be careful as her employment also as a test pilot could jeopardize lucrative contracts, grounding her, and potentially leaving her in the dog house or out on her face if she gets out of line.

 

Household Name: Levity/Anne are now well known thanks to NA's PR division, and she's becoming a popular sight in Emerald City. Of course as a public figure, this can create it's own drama.

 

"Lost engines! Bailing!": Levity/Anne takes a risk going at double movement or all-out movement as her flight power could quit on her. She's not quite gotten the hang of focussing her ability to control gravity to fly at greater speeds... or perhaps there is a limit... who knows, this is flying without a plane stuff still new to her. It can take quite a while (at least a day) for her to re-focus and get flying again.

 

"Here I am savin' you again, Jaime.": Jaime "Puffy" Williams is Anne's wingman, a younger pilot, who is also a significant other. Her line of work as a Test Pilot can put her into danger, as well as get entangled with any intrigues in EC. Particularly to bait out Levity/Anne.

 

"D... Dad? What did they do to you?": Anne's father David was dependent on pain medications which were addictive in nature, causing his mental state to degrade. That was when Ghostworks seeing his debts mount to shady dealers came to make a deal. They would cybernetically enhance him and repair his damage and cover his debts, as long as he'd work for them. Her father was more than willing... as now he also gets to fly their craft... he was so bitter at the world that he accepted working for Ghostworks and became a loyal member. He hunts Anne, and tries to disrupt Nolan activities whenever ordered under the callsign of "Heatseeker".
