Power Descriptions: All powers originate from Tendril the plant wrapped around Kelly’s spine, this means powers will usually be seen manifesting from it’s tentacles.

History: Kelly grew up watching the exploits of heroes on the news and fiction. She dreamed of being one of those heroes but didn’t think it possible being without magic or mutation. She let go of that dream and forgot about it as she got older.

That changed on her 18th birthday, when in the course of drinking partying and what any other Midwestern teenager would been doing for their 18th, Kelly wandered off away from her friends. In a blink of an eye she was struck in the back by a meteor from space. This was no ordinary meteor, being in fact a seed. The seed turned out to be an intelligent plant, a member of a race of interstellar plants with the ability to adapt their DNA to take over any world they land on. This adaption caused it to bond with Kelly, it repaired the damage caused by the strike. Accessing her memories the first thing it found was the desire to be a hero, the plants adaptablity took this into itself.

With Kelly to guide it together they have moved to Freedom City to try their hand at the hero business.

Tendril emerges form Kelly’s back as a series of plant tentacles. These vary in number but are usually 4. These Tentacles allow her to walk in the vines like long legs, climb, and swing. The vines are superstrong, and are used to punch and deflect attacks as well as grapple.

I have made a few small edits removed a powerfeat from super strength to correct my overage.

EDIT: Going through SheanTheBrains notes... this will take a while.

EDIT Again, Ok, I've done all that I can for now.

Ok a few quick things. On your Saves and Skills, you need to denote what they are with and without your powers.

Alphabetize your feats. And speaking of feats, if your Defensive Roll is based upon the plants intercepting attacks, then it should be an Enhanced Feat, which has the same cost, but is listed under Powers instead of feats.
