History:

Mahir’s story begins in 1930, when a young German archeologist was investigating a site in the Levant. Gustav Richter, the archeologist in question, was a quiet, reflective sort, though his nationalist and racist tendencies did nothing to endear him to the others in his expedition.

 

During their long dig, Gustav was caught in a collapse along with three others. It was there that he discovered something that changed his life forever. An ancient spirit of wind and fire, bound centuries before by mages of the caliphate, called out to Gustav, and he answered.

 

Gustav Richter returned to Germany alone, three years later, whereupon he joined Hitler’s Übersoldaten, becoming known as Schnellschatten, the Swift Shadow. Serving mostly as a super-fast scout, he nevertheless clashed several times with the Liberty League, and was responsible for intelligence that led to some of the worst defeats of the Allies.

 

When the Second World War ended, Gustav was captured, and it was discovered that the ancient spirit that had endowed him with power was also possessing him. When the spirit was cast out, he claimed that all he had done was at its behest – though no one could tell whether or not this was true, he was not executed and instead lived out the rest of his life in prison. The spirit, meanwhile, was mystically dissected and sealed away across the Earth.

 

Fifty years later, in the State of Israel, Sara Nahmad was born to the Syrian Mizrahi couple Aharon and Maryam Nahmad. Unusually slow for a child, Sara never seemed to do anything fast – whether it was growing, or playing. The only exception to this rule was her mind, and there she truly excelled, as she learned to speak months earlier than her peers, and generally was quite intelligent.

 

Her older brother, Eliya, doted significantly on Sara, and the two were inseperable for the first six years of her life. Though he was only three years older than her, Eliya proved an able mentor and protector, keeping bullies away from her when she first went to school, and generally being an inspiration for her.

 

School was a joy and a pain for Sara, whose slow movements made her very unpopular with the highly physical culture of the Israeli school system, but she delighted in learning about history and myth. Meanwhile, at home, she learned religion from her father’s rabbi and her mother. 

 

Once she graduated from high school, Sara joined the IDF as an analyst, for her physical capabilities left her with much to be desired as a soldier. The next two years saw Sara grow increasingly depressed and disappointed with her homeland’s policies, even as she loved her people dearly.

 

When her two years of service were up, Sara went to university, where she studied religion and history – unpopular choices in the technological heart that was Tel Aviv, but she persevered. The day she graduated was one of her proudest moments, and Eliya and her parents showed their pride in her as they gave her a silver necklace, which she wears to this day.

 

It was in the late winter of 2020 that Sara found the place that would change her life forever. While she was on pilgrimage to Jerusalem, Sara came across an ancient tablet. Studying it carefully led her to begin hearing the voice of the ancient spirit that once possessed Gustav Richter, so many years ago.

 

Despite her caution, Sara decided to speak with the spirit, trying to determine its intentions. After nearly three days, the young woman decided to help free it – to her mind, it deserved to have a chance to be free of its tormented existence.

Power Descriptions:
(Describe the appearance of their powers as applicable: the colour of energy blasts, the shape of portals, the design of a battlesuit. Also give an idea of the Descriptors those powers use: fire, technological, cosmic energy, etc.)

 

Complications:
Faster than I can Think: Sometimes Mahir finds herself struggling to keep up with her body’s reactions, and she acts before her thoughts catch up with the action. This isn’t exactly impulsiveness, but it is close enough that there’s little difference.
Dark Origins: XXXX, the spirit that Mahir freed and which empowered her, was an infamous villain in the 1930s and 40s. Anyone who recognizes the signatures of her movements will end up quite suspicious of her.
