Description: Her skin is a healthy mix between her two heritages, she could pass for either. Her hair is long and silky, she keeps it down most of the time. Her almond shaped eyes are the color of the dragon spirit, a striking jade green. Her lips are full, but not large. Her body type is physically fit, she keeps it up with her parkour regiment everyday. She has slight defined curves, but she is no dangerous hourglass. Her stride is quick, as if she has no time to slow down, even when she is relaxing. You'll barely catch her standing in one place for a even a short while. She talks with her hands. Though it is not grandiose, but a subtle movement that you dont't really notice until you see it. Her voice is light, and unlike her fast paced movement she takes time to explain everything.

Her clothing is one of three styles. When she's at social gatherings it's almost always a jade gown. Shoes and jewelry depend on "who are you wearing". When she's in casual gear, she tends to wear track clothing a lot. track pants, sneakers and a sports top. When in costume as Jade Dragon, she has a morphic molecules costume that has been passed down since 1950. Everyone since the first Jade dragon wore it. It is a green, skin tight leotard looking full bodysuit with dragon patterns lightly embroidered in. she has taken liberties with it and taken off the arms and headcover. Nothing replaces the arms, but she has a kabuki dragon mask she aquired from her homeland. She is the first Jade Dragon to wear such.

Power Descriptions: The dragon spirit in side of her gives her access to the magic of the elemnts. She needs an attuned focus to bring the elements forth. As of now, her focus of choice is an archer's bow. Every spell discharged from it looks like a shaft of light based on the element powering the spell. Air is silver, Earth is brown, Fire is red, Water is blue, Light is white, Darkness is black.

History: Eve is not the first Jade Dragon, her lineage is the holder of a protective dragon spirit that made itself known to her great-grandfather in a grim time, saving him from death. From then on, on the first child's twenty first birthday, the former owner loses the dragon spirit and the new Jade Dragon ascends. This has been done twice before, making Eve the fourth iteration. What's so special about that? She's the first female Jade Dragon. Which means that the new seed was not planted directly. Other things have happened during Eve's "reign" as the Jade Dragon. The legacy used to be a secret. But in an act of bravery in one of her first outings, she was exposed for who she was on national television. Rather than backpeddle, she admitted that she was the Jade Dragon. But let's take you back a bit in Eve's life to understand this whole blurb.

Eve's grandfather, Kurosawa Hoshi II, was not only a heroic man, but a business man. While he was saving lives he was ruling the board room also. This was a lucrative business. Oil. The man worked his way tough deals and bought out most of the smaller oil companies. Eventually becoming number two in the United States. By the time the third Jade Dragon was ready for his duty, Hoshi II was a magnate. He and his family would never have to worry about money again.

Eve's father, Kurosawa Hoshi III, was not the tycoon his father was. He was even pitted in an arranged marriage because of the money it would make the family. He and his wife however, Juanita Johnson, daughter of an electronics mogul, made the best of what they had. And they eventually learned to love each other after the baby was born. But something was not right. The new child was female. Not male. This would have reprecussions on the lineage of Jade Dragons.

Eve was a rambunctious child, by the age of the tabloid, the gossip world was keeping their eyes on everything the family did. Mostly, Eve, who liked to show off. On top of her secret life of learning everything she could in 21 years about the Jade Dragon, she had to deal with snooty people parties She'd smiled and waved all her young life. Never anything for her personally. By her tween yars she was known to sneak out where no one would know her. The lower class who never even heard of her. She was glad that no one would judge her. She got into the running sport, parkour, at that age too. It kept her physically fit and made her some new friends across Freedom City. Even though she rebelled, she never really struck out with her family. As she never got into real trouble.she had contacts and connections on both sides of the tracks. And like clockwork, on her 21st birthday, the spirit left her father and came into her. The spirit had to surpress it's instinctal mating ritual for a few reasons. One she wasn't married. Two, she was female. If she got pregnant, her time as the Jade Dragon would be cut very short. Still it itched and looked for potential fathers, Eve unknowing. She still had the time of her life, but it was one misstep that blew the Jade Dragon legacy right into the open. We'll have to back track for this one too.

Through out the years, Jade Dragons and Crimson Katanas battle many times.some were more friendly than others. Others were bloody battles. The two families have struggled and strived against each other since the early days of the Jade Dragon. Not that long of a trackback, huh?

During one of her first outings, Eve was wearing the old the pre-redesigned outfit. Full face mask and all. What she didn't expect is for people to be filming this! Not that she mind. The Jade Dragon was getting some publicity. All good. The bad part came when Crimson Katana's sword took over her and she started to fight for real. Her father and her grandfather told her this day would come, but to subdue herbbeast before it hurt any civilians. A ferocious battle ensued with cameras watching. In a bizarre move, Crimson Katana tore Jade Dragon's mask off. The world was shocked to find that Eve Kurosawa was the Jade Dragon. Eventually when the battle was over and Crimson Katana subdued and sent away. Jade Dragon escaped. She though about what to do for days and days, cunsulting the spirit itself. Finally she made the decision that she wanted. That she believed that would help. She did not hide anmore. She was going to be open as she could about the Jade Dragon legacy with family consent.

Personality & Motivation: Eve is swift mentally as well as physically. She enjoys her new life as a hero. She gets to do justice without fear of hiding.

Powers & Tactics: Jade Dragon is a elementalist mystic. Her focus is through archery instead of swords as past Jade Dragons. Her tactics are to keep out of melee and shooting. A game of cat and mouse where she is using herself as the bait!


Rivalry (Crimson Katana): The judge is ever old. Pitting hero vs villain. This Jade Dragon is trying to get this Crimson Katana some help.

"I know you!": Eve is not secretive about her hero life. This can lead to many situation, good and bad.

You're undercapped defensively, and I think most the powers you have on your array are overcapped for a PL 10 character. Most powers are capped at the PL level with the exception in your array is the blast power.

The character is using a +DC/-Att trade-off. Although that would be nice to have noted somewhere. The PL of the character should be somewhere on here, as well.
