Kiarna Ins Tal - Thunder Girl *edited with updated backstory*
Hero Name: Thundergirl
Real Name: Kiarna Ins Tal
Age: Appears 21
Physical Description: to many who would look at her at first glance, it would be thought that what was seen is a exact match to Powergirl. but on closer inspection what is clear is the detail that makes her different. Unlike Powergirl, Kiarna has amazing otherworldly emerald green sparkling eyes.
Weapon of Choice: Fists for sure and powers
Powers: Under the effects of a "yellow" sun, Kiarna possesses the same potential powers as an average Kryptonian. These include:
Solar Energy Absorption: Under optimal conditions, this is the main source of Kiarna's super powers as they are contingent upon exposure to solar radiation from a yellow sun star system. Her biological make up includes a number of organs which lack analogues in humans and whose functions are unknown. It is believed that between one or more of these and her bio-cellular matrix, "yellow" solar energy is stored for later use. This allows for the use of these powers to fade when yellow solar radiation is not available instead of immediate failure.
Heat Vision:Kiarna can, as a conscious act, fire beams of intense heat at a target by looking at it. She can vary the heat and area affected.
Super-Hearing: Kiarna's hearing is sensitive enough to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. With skill and concentration, she can block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source or frequency. She lacks the focus to pin point sounds like Superman does, but can still hear far distances, sometimes in the miles.
Enhanced Vision: Kiarna's vision processes the entire electromagnetic spectrum as well as allowing vast control over selective perception and focus.
This umbrella ability includes the following:
Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision: Kiarna can see well into most of the electromagnetic spectrum. She can see and identify radio and television signals as well as all other broadcast or transmitted frequencies. Using this ability, she can avoid detection by radar or satellite monitoring methods. This also allows her to see the aura generated by living things.
Telescopic Vision: This is the ability to see something at a great distance, without violating the laws of physics. Though limited, the exact extent of the ability is undetermined. In function, it is similar to the zoom lens on a camera.
X-Ray Vision: This is the ability to see through any volume of matter except lead. (and various kinds of force fields) Kiarna's can see things behind a solid, opaque object as if it were not there. She can focus this ability to "peel back" layers of an object, allowing hidden image or inner workings to be observed. The exact type of energy perceived - such as x-rays, cosmic rays, or some other energy invisible to normal humans - is unclear. This ability perceives an ambient energy source though, it does not involve the eye projecting a concentrated, possibly toxic, beam to be reflected back from objects.
Microscopic Vision: This is the ability to see extremely small objects and images down to the atomic level.
Infrared Vision: Kiarna's can see with better acuity in darkness, and to a degree in total darkness.
Flight: ( DCURPG Level 15-- Approximately Mach 75)
Kiarna is able to manipulate graviton particles to defy the forces of gravity and achieve flight. This ranges from hovering to moving in any posture, in any direction.
Invulnerability: Due to the interaction of her dense molecular structure and supercharged bio-electric aura, Kiarna is nigh-invulnerable to extreme energy forces. In addition, her aura extends this protection against toxins and diseases.
Healing Factor: Due to her Kryptonian physiology, Kiarna is able to heal from minor wounds in minutes. Cracked and broken bones would take longer. It has never been tested if she could regenerate a lost limb though. All of this is faster the closer to the sun, she is. So solar chambers are her best bet for severe injury.
Superhuman Stamina: (DCURPG Level-- 13)
Kiarna is able to maintain continuous strenuous physical action for an indefinite period of time. This based on her body converting yellow solar radiation directly to energy, but is limited by physiological and psychological needs to eat, drink, and sleep.
Superhuman Strength: (DCURPG Level 21-- Approximately 55,000 Tons max lift)
Kiarna's strength is augmented by yellow solar radiation interacting with the greater than human density, resilience and biological efficiency of her musculature. Her strength is more an act of conscious will on energy fields than actual physical strength. It is this act of conscious will that enables her to perform physical feats that are beyond the mere application force, such as moving a mountain top without said rock crumbling under its own mass.
Superhuman Speed: Kiarna is able to move at incredible speed by sheer force of will. This extends to her perceptions and allows for feats such as catching bullets in mid flight as well as covering vast distances in little or no time.
This also confers:
Super-Breath: Kiarna is able to create hurricane force winds by exhaling air from her lungs. She can chill the air as it leaves her lungs to freeze targets. She can also reverse the process to pull large volumes of air or vapor into her lungs.
Movement Type: Flight
History:the story for Kiarna is a mile long by now, so I'll update you all on the abridged story. The planet it self suffered a far darker fate. It's people were defeated in battle against a race of aliens known as the Vax Empire. Because of this the Kryptonians, instead of death were captured and overtime horded into slavery. because of this, the planets dark fate was altered into being kept from blowing up.
Kiarna was born of the mixed DNA of her mother, Ins Tal, and Kara Tal (Kiarna's home universe version of Powergirl.) with the seed of a genetically selected male. As a infant, Kiarna was sent away from Krypton and awoke on our Earth having aged 15 years in the process. When she arrived she was found by a high standing family who held high amounts of stock in Lex Corp. This family who saw life in the same light as Lex himself took Kiarna in and with the help of Lex Corp technology performed all manner of harsh and cruel tests and experiments on her to only find out that she was Kryptonian.
Then one day while she was toiling away in her house chores the family used her for. She found the pod that delivered her to Earth. Inside of it she found her Kryptonian weave armor and a crystal that when she held it told her everything she needed to know about her past. Up until this point the young Kryptonian had not even been allowed to speak much less learn anything about who she was and where she was from. So the knowledge of such was a complete shock to her. So much so, she ran from the house. wearing only the outfit she had just found she ran out and the moment her skin touched the sunlight she was swept away by her powers Flight being the first to find her she shot off screaming through the air and did not figure out how to land until she slammed into the ground at the Montana ranch house of a retired couple of ranchers.
These people being good honest people took the, at this time, teen aged Kiarna in and cared for her for several years. Teaching her everything they could about Earth, America, Humans, and the English language. They gave her clothes, food, a warm and safe place to sleep. Treated her like their child until the day came that Kiarna told them that she had to leave. Returning to Metropolis, Kiarna found herself alone and needing to find her way. This is when she met Powergirl. The day they met, Kiarna was flying by a crime scene when a Meta Human knocked the two Kryptonians into one another. When they recovered from the hit, both girls were simply stunned at the sight of one another. At that point Powergirl explained the situation of the criminal attack below, and Kiarna helped Powergirl to defeat the foe. Then blurring into the clouds and concealing their selves.
Powergirl started to ask questions. Thus the rest became history. Kiarna soon took up the name, Thundergirl, and swore to fight crime at the side of her beloved Zhao Bim.
Re: Thunder Girl Swoops in I won't lie about it. My first thought was "Oh god, another clone", but then I RPed with you and I am impressed. I love that you are open to criticism and you have a really good grasp on writing. The concept is fun and I hope everyone gives you a chance.
I especially love how she interacts with Power Girl and how she is the "Black Sheep" of the Kryptonians, but is good at heart. So she will learn to be her own hero... one day. The joy is in the journey, so don't rush it. A few mistakes along the way will really flush her out.
To everyone else that is groaning, I can here you! so give this girl a chance and see what I saw. It only takes a few minutes of RP to see that she is fun to be around.
Re: Thunder Girl Swoops in Thank you SG ill try hard not to let you down from your kind words. Your right ill be happy to take it slow and learn overtime as it stands ill be looking forward to rping with everyone along the way and remember people, the occupation doesn't make the hero. The insides do.
Re: Kiarna Ins Tal - Thunder Girl *edited with updated backstory* Once more fixed the backstory some. There's more to be written on the biography, but this should give a proper opening for how Thundergirl got where she is now. Will fill in the "Returning To Krypton" story and such later. For now, just wanted to update and adjust some things.
Re: Kiarna Ins Tal - Thunder Girl *edited with updated backstory* Weaknesses
Kryptonian Physiology: Under the effects of a "yellow" sun, Kara possesses the same potential weaknesses as an average Kryptonian. These include:
Vulnerability to Kryptonite - Various colors do various things to her. Green can kill her, red can cause her to lose control of her emotions, gold can strip her of her powers for 15 minutes. However, because she is from a different version of Krypton than Supergirl, Superman, or Powergirl Kryptonite of their world is highly less effective, and will not only take longer to have the same effect but will take larger amounts to be effective.
Vulnerability to Magic - She is as weak to magic as a normal human being would be.
Vulnerability to Sonics - Ultrasonic attacks can render her unconscious. This is partly because of super hearing, but also from her bioelectric aura not able to defend her from it.
Vulnerability to Strong Electric Current - The attack has to be lightning level of shock (Million volts or more), and not just a simple tazer. With enough current, she can become incapacitated and her bioelectric aura can be turned off. However, Other high end currents of electricity are effective. Ampule levels that are high enough to instantly kill a human are strong enough to weaken and greatly effect her Aura.
Power Limitation: Kiarna's vision powers cannot penetrate lead or lead-lined walls, or objects of dense enough structure. Certain energies also can be used to block her from visually analyzing them.
Red Sunlight - Under the energy of red solar power, her cells can no longer collect yellow energy, and her powers are "cut off." She is still a Kryptonian, but no longer has her bioelectric aura. Additionally, Kiarna is further weakened to Mental and Physical attacks because of the slight differences in her genetic organization. The effects of Red Solar energy cause Kiarna to become easier to be effected by Mental domination than in normal situations(The source of all her powers)
Vulnerability to Psionics: Kiarna Ins Tal is as vulnerable to psionic attacks as a normal human being. She is subject to mental domination attacks against her. Those whose mental powers are superior to her own have been able to render her unconscious or disrupt her natural thought processes in battle. Due to her capture by Lexandra, the Physical and mental tortures Kiarna was put through, her mental defenses are much less than other Kryptonians.
