Origin Story


Cho opened the door to her home, hoping her mother and stepfather would not be around yet. Her clothes were tattered and burned but she seemed unharmed. Unfortunately for her, her stepfather was waiting at the table, waiting for her. “Cho. Where have you been?†he asked, sternly. “Nowhere, John.†she said, acting disinterested or at least faking it. The man kept looking at her. “Don’t play games with me, the school called. And you’re covered in burns, what the heck happened?â€

“I said nothing!†shouted the girl and, instinctively, the man recoiled in fear. “Okay just get off my back! I had a hard day and yes, those are burns on my clothes, so what?†she screamed. “Want to know how I got those? While you were here, preparing your speech to admonish me, I jumped into a frickin’ fire to get someone out! Like anyone like me should have done!†She then looked down at herself. “And look, not a burn on me. You think that’s normal, John?†The man removed his glasses and rubbed his eyes. “Your mother is scared, Cho. Look, we know you’re...changing. You don’t think that might just scare us a bit? The school called, apparently you made a hole in the wall and I don’t mean with your fists. There were witnesses. They saw what you did.â€

Cho shaked her head. “I didn’t mean to, someone was being a jerk. I stepped in to stop him. I-I lost...control, I think. It came out of nowhere, I didn’t even know I could do that. You have no idea how much I’m glad he ducked out of the way because I can’t imagine what would have happened to him if I had hit him with that.†Once more, he just silently looked at her. “I’m scared too! But I know what I got to do because it’s what people like me do. It’s the only thing they can do! So get off my back!â€

“Cho, Cho...I know things have always been rough between you and me but you have to understand I have your mother and sister to look after and-†He gets cut off by the angry girl. “Don’t say that, I know you’re scared of me! You think I’m a freak. I know you don’t like /them/.†The man slammed his fist on the table. “This isn’t about this, it’s never been about this! This isn’t about superpowers. It’s about you and how you worry your mother. This has nothing to do with what I think of these people, I know we wouldn’t be here without them. This is about YOU. This is about your mother crying herself to sleep because she doesn’t understand what’s going on with you. She’s scared because she love you!â€

The girl breathed in, holding back some more yelling. Things had always been difficult between her and her stepfather. “I know you resent me. Because I’m not your father.†said the man, getting up from his chair. “It’s just that I want to put this to good use, you know? Isn’t that the least I can do?†Grabbing a kitchen knife, she plunges it into her chest, bending and breaking it. “Seriously, is there any job prospect for someone like me beside putting on a cape and going out there, putting that power to good use?†Her stepfather shrugged, knowing that there was no way out of this argument. “I know what mom wants; she want me safe and sound, hopefully in some cozy job where I won’t get harmed.â€


“After what happened to your father, can you blame her?†The man approached her, now standing shorter than her following her recent growth spurt. Hesitantly, he took her hand, the skin feeling somewhat hard now. “She doesn’t want to lose you.†he said, shaking his head. “And I want to do something that matters!†The man gave her a sad look. "You don't know what you're getting into, kid."

“Okay, so…†said Cho as she examined the papers she was holding. “Self-examination test. Okay, seems simple enough.†The girl continued the read and examine the papers, checking the instructions. She thought it would likely be simple enough and easy to answer.

(1) Where are you from?

“Oh come on, they know that it’s probably in their files, what kind of stupid question is this?â€

I was born in Freedom City.

(2) How would you physically describe yourself? Is this different from how others would?

“What kind of question is that! Really?â€

I guess that, now, I look rather strong and fit. Probably part of my powers. I have no idea how the others would describe me, I’m probably far from the weirdest person here. I don't think guys like that.

(3) Does you have a distinguishing speech characteristics or recurring mannerisms?

“I...I don’t know!†she continue to say out loud as she answered the questions.

I talk loudly and with a lot of enthusiasm, or so I’m told.

(4) What is your motivation?

Not getting yelled at by my mother. Maybe do some good when I can.

(5) What are your greatest strengths and weaknesses?

I have a lot of energy I guess. I get told I got a very bad temper and I’m too quick to act and that I don’t really think about the repercussions of my actions too well.

(6) What does your love? What does you hate?

I love baseball. I hate bullies, I guess.

(7) How would you describe your mental and emotional state?

“Uuum…†She took a moment to ponder that.

I’m a teenager, does that answer your questions? I guess I’m a bit confused about my place in the world and what to do with my powers.

(8) What do your fear the most?

“I don’t fear anything! Okay, no, not really.â€

I fear my family would get harmed, as anybody would. Mostly I fear they could reject me.

(9) What is your greatest ambition?

I guess, deep down, there are a lot of people in Freedom City I look up to. I know I’ll never be a tenth of how great they are or were.

(10) How do you feel about the state of the world and your place in it?

I wish I knew.

(11) Does you have any prejudices? How do you get along with others?

I don’t really have any prejudice. My parents are from different countries so I guess that’s not something I really think about in my daily life. Lot’s of different kind of people I don’t see why anyone would be less for being different. I think my temper stop me from getting along well with others sometimes.

(12) Where do your loyalties lie? In what order?

I don’t really know, I never thought about it.

(13) Does your hero have a lover or partner? How do they feel about you?

Hey that’s personal you creeps!

(14) Does you have a family? What is the relationship there like?

“Ugh, why THAT question? Do I really have to answer?â€

I got issues with my stepfather. My mother seems a bit ill. They don’t approve that I get into danger. So, no, I guess things aren’t going so well with my family.

(15) How would the people closest to you describe you?


(16) Do you consider yourself a role model?

“OH COME ON! Who wrote that?â€

I don’t know. I wish I could say yes.

(17) How spiritual are you? Does you follow a religious tradition?

I pray once in a while, does that count?

(18) Would you one day like to be part of a team? Why?


YES! Because the Freedom League look so damn cool! Thing is, I’m not good enough for that.

(19) How does you feel about the place of metahumans and aliens on Earth?


I guess I can’t really write anything negative since I’m one. So I’m okay with it I guess.

(20) If someone could give you a piece of advice, what do you think it would be?

Not to act too rashly? 




Finishing writing everything, Cho took a moment to ponder her answers before finally giving up and just putting the paper where it was meant to go. She hoped that would satisfy the school councillor. She wasn't exactly sure if her answers were in-depth enough but sitting there writing had somewhat bored her already.
