Andromeda is obviously not human although she doesn't look much like any particular race. She has some characteristics in common with the guardians that the Preserver engineered but that has more to do with her difficulty telling humanoid forms apart, rather than any actual relation. Andromeda has been watching earth for a looooong time. In her chosen form, she has delicate features and finely pointed ears. She, well, shines for lack of a better term so unless she's deliberately hiding her nature in another form, she's distinctly not human. Her curly hair tends to float around her head as if it were constantly in zero-g, regardless of the ambient wind or lack there-of. Her eyes glow a bright red, pulsing like the starlight that she used to emit. 



Andromeda has watched for ages and ages. Her solar system was devoid of any life. The planets that circled her were life less. Though she thinks of them fondly and feels a certain connection, when life began to sprout up around in other systems, she watched with rapt fascination as they crawled and then eventually took to the stars. Life moves ever so much faster than celestial bodies. It felt like they went from caves and ponds to dashing about the cosmos in their ships. As her starlight began to fade, beginning the slow death of a sun, Andromeda wrapped herself in flesh and bone and sent her newly made body to the planet that she loved to watch most: Earth.


Personality & Motivation:


Andromeda is a genuinely good being. She is fascinated by life in all of its many shapes and forms. She is filled with childlike wonder much of the time but with an ancient creature's full capacity to understand and extrapolate. Her primary motivation is to understand and enjoy a facsimile of 'mortal' life and, in general, wants to help those she encounters. She believes mortals are inherently good, although she understands not everyone actually acts benevolently. She doesn't always understand why that's the case. Andromeda is almost impossible to really anger; it's a rarity, certainly. Confusion or disappointment are far more common emotional reactions to negative outcomes. Andromeda doesn't really see herself AS human, although she'd dearly like to, on some level. 


Powers & Tactics:


Despite the initial concerns of those around her, Andromeda is in full control of the abilities of this body. Her scale is so much smaller than what she's used to. Generally, Andromeda would rather talk someone out of doing Bad Things, like robbing a bank or other poor life choices. In an emergency, she'll go to her gravitational control to negate the dangerous situation as quickly as possible. Only when conflict is truly unavoidable does she resort to star bolts and then only to subdue. There is no situation that Andromeda would use lethal force on a living creature, or for that matter, anything with discernible sentience. 


Power Descriptions:
Andromeda is (although she would take offense to the phrase 'fragment'), a fragment of a star and contains a powder keg of cosmic power. She is able to reshape reality around her with a touch of the forces of creation itself. Her power manifests with brilliant light although the color spectrum fluctuates. Her range, however, is limited. Re-shaping the world around her requires physical contact and she's starting to find some joy in shaping things for purely artistic joy although she's only JUST starting to grasp what art is so while one sculpture of stone might take the shape of something lovely, it is entirely possible that the next will  be a sculpture of a billboard that captured her attention. 


Easily Distracted: There is so much life happening all the time, everywhere she looks. It can be hard to get her to focus on the task at hand especially without a pressing emergency.


Left Her Post: When stars go missing in the night sky, it's not going to go unnoticed. Sometimes it might be a cult worshiping that pulsing red star, othertimes it might be a space faring race looking for their fallen god. It doesn't come up often but when it does, it can cause Andromeda no end of trouble.


Newly Human: Stranger in a strange land. There are any number of human conventions that Andromeda Doesn't Get, from the innocuous to the truly problematic.
