Chiyoko was a fairly young-looking Japanese woman, of about 23 years of age, with black hair, olive eyes, and a fair complexion. She had a fairly traditional figure, in fact, fairly lightweight and quite short.

Nowadays, she looks almost the same, except her eyes are golden and her hair silver, both as a result of the accident that granted her her powers. While pretty, she isn't the most beautiful woman around, but she is very graceful, every movement she makes deliberate and considered.

Power Descriptions:

Tachyon's powers are all focused around cosmic energies. In practical terms, she can do a variety of things with them, and all manifest as glowing energy of silver and gold. She can project blasts of energy, form it into a sword (which she prefers to manifest as a katana), heal, corrode, and fly fast enough to travel between starts in hours or even minutes.


Chiyoko was born to Daisuke Hayashi, then a high-ranking member of the Midori-gumi syndicate of the Yakuza. Her childhood was... mixed. Daisuke loved her and her mother, but was often absent. And then her mother was killed when she was just five years old, in a terrorist attack on Paris by Overthrow.

Daisuke grew even more distant after that, throwing himself on a quest for revenge as he climbed up the ladder of the syndicate. He still tried to involve himself... a bit... but to be honest, Daisuke didn't think he was a suitable parent. Her uncle, Takeshi, spent more time with her. And Daisuke made sure she was looked after as well, employing a nanny to help raise her. The socialisation that came with starting school also helped her a great deal, and it was there that she started developing a passion for physics. A combination of hard work, study, and funds from her father eventually got her into Oxford University, where she helped with a few practical experiments. Until one went wrong, and changed her life forever. While she was helping test a particle accelerator, the accelerator suddenly vastly overshot first its safe limit, then what was supposed to be the maximum possible output. And then it exploded, with Chiyoko caught in the blast radius. When the smoke cleared, her hair and eyes had both changed color, and she was staring wide-eyed at the cosmic energy surrounding her hands. In the aftermath, an investigation on the cause of the accident drew no satisfactory conclusions- it could have been deliberate sabotage, but there simply wasn't enough evidence left.

In the meantime, Chiyoko did a little experimentation with her powers, discovering most of them fairly quickly (the light-speed travel through accidentally making her way to Pluto when testing her flight). Ultimately, she decided that she needed to go on... a walkabout to find herself. Except on a much larger scale. So, a month after she gained her powers... Chiyoko left Earth.

The past ten years have been interesting for Chiyoko. She's seen a large portion of the galaxy (although she's the first to admit she's not seen everything- she hasn't gone into Grue space, for one thing), she's had numerous adventures, and she's forged some ties among the Lor. Now... now she's ready to return to Earth.

Personality & Motivation:

Chiyoko has a very... calm personality. She doesn't see much need in showing her emotions to a large degree, preferring a gentle smile over a grin. In fact, people tend to get the impression that every action she makes is thought out- which isn't completely true, but it's not completely false either. She's kind, but determined, and in her time away, has come to believe that the best use she can make of her powers is using it to help others by joining the superhero community. On the other hand... she's still trying to find herself to a large degree- she knows she'll have divided loyalties at some point if she joins the superhero community, since her father is still in the same job he was when she left earth. Still, she tries not to show that internal conflict, instead acting with honor whenever she can.

Powers & Tactics:

Tachyon has a varied fighting style. She uses her powers to their full extent, switching to whichever use of her powers is most suited to the current situation, but shows a slight preference towards fighting up close and from the ground, using her energy sword to attack opponents.


My Father is a Yakuza Oyabun: Chiyoko's father, Daisuke, isn't just a crime boss, he's a major one. While Chiyoko will not work for Daisuke, she also won't testify against him unless Daisuke goes so far as to kill innocents.
