Ms. Comet

(created by Randall “Rando” Donaldson)

Mixed-Class Sample Character

 

Full Name: Carol Moritz

Appearance: Carol is a tall, striking woman with a head of curly black hair and nearly olive-toned skin. Her brown eyes have been known to make grown men, and none too few women, weep. She stands proudly, feet planted and shoulders level. She is covered in muscles from neck to ankles, although she hides it well with creative tailoring.  Ms. Comet wears a red-and-yellow costume with a flaming comet on the chest, and when Carol invokes any of her powers, her hair turns bright red and her body becomes engulfed in a very small aura of flame which radiates a small amount of heat, but not enough to do damage.

Personality/History: Carol Moritz was born in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the daughter of progressive Jewish parents who had a life-long in social justice. Upon graduation from Yeshiva University, she became a career and academic councillor. After a series of brief positions at various universities, she found herself in Honolulu, counselling students at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

On a hike near a dormant vulcano, Carol slid into a lava outlet and found herself trapped in the heart of the ancient mountain. She followed the only path available to her, which only lead her deeper into the vulcano. After a whole day of following the caverns, she found a chamber deep underground.  The chamber glowed with a dull blue light. With nowhere else to go, she pushed on but soon passed out from exhaustion.  When Carol woke up, she felt not only refreshed but invigorated.  She kept moving until she came to a point from which she could see daylight a hundred feet above her. Frustrated, she reached for the light only to find herself floating upward toward it. She flew into the air above the vulcano and found she could control her ascent and descent with a thought. Over the next few weeks, Carol discovered that the mysterious radiation had also toughened her body, making her strong and tough, and even able to survive without oxygen and in the vacuum of space.

Location: The Big Island, Hawaii, USA

Power Theme: Ms. Comet’s powers are heat-based, despite the fact that comets are balls of frozen gas. The radiation caused her body to absorb some of the Earth’s volcanic heat, which she can release upon command (Energy Attack). It also made her body strong and her mind keen, a combination which also made her inhumanly charismatic.

Combat/Tactics: Ms. Comet always works, first, to clear any endangered bystanders from an area, often carrying them to safety in her arms, on her back, or in a convenient vehicle which she can fly to safety. She does not consciously prioritise; it is simply part of her personality that she gives aid before attacking a perceived villain. When attacking a villain is the quickest way to solve a problem, however, she leaps into action, first using her Comet Collision (Iconic Attack) against the most powerful opponent, and then slugging it out with anyone left standing.
