Reference Number:
N-638

Status:
Alive/Active

Name:
Vivian “Vivi” Victoria

Demographic Information:
  • Caucasian Female
  • Date of Birth August 15th, 1996
  • Native Born United States Citizen
Confirmed Aliases:
  • Nightgaunt
  • Ghost
  • Wraith
  • Eidolon (Current)
Threat Assessment:
Sinistral - Off-Suit - Phasing

The Occula held by Vivian allows her to slip through solid objects of any thickness and density, with no damage to herself or the object, as well as move through gases and liquids without disrupting the medium. To date no material has been found that can arrest or slow this phasing ability. It also seems that Vivian is able to impart the same phasing property onto any object she is in contact with, with a mass limit.

She has been witnessed pulling up to one (1) person through the wall of a structure at any given time. More data is required, however it is believed that it is the upper limits of her ability to power share. Interviewed subject noted that Vivian seemed more hurried and strained while she was aiding them, please refer to addendums 12a and 17b for notable examples. Firefighters noted she seemed physically haggard after helping in the rescue of trapped tenants during an apartment fire, though she refused any treatment for smoke inhalation.

Use of her powers in combat seems to focus mainly on tiring her opponents out, while striking them repeatedly with a collapsible rod that she momentarily materializes. She seems strong for her age and body type, but at this time the addition of Physical Enhancement is not recommended. She has been noted on more than one occasion to attach two objects together by releasing the one she was holding while phasing it. The two objects seem to fuse seamlessly when she does this, and Vivian seems to be the only one who can then unfuse the two objects.

Weaknesses seem to relate to duration of power use, as well as additive strain placed on her body by attempting to phase masses larger than her own. It is unknown at this time of another phaser could harm Vivian, as no other known Occula are within the Detroit area. Given her body type, and the means in which she engages in combat it is our belief that she would not last long against any Occula who can land a solid hit on her person.

Background References:
Vivian was born to Marcus and Helina Victoria at the Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital. By all accounts her formative years were happy, her family was not rich, but they were comfortable enough. However tragedy struck when Vivian was the age of twelve, her father was killed in a mugging gone wrong. Shot twice and left for dead, he did not arrive at a hospital until it was far too late.

To say this had an effect on Vivian would be an understatement.

First reports of her taking vigilante action was four years later. Three men who were attempting to rob a gas station were attacked by what they called a ghost. A girl who was able to take the very guns out of their hands and fuse them into the walls. In the years following, reports of a similar Occula taking on various criminal elements has only increased.

Vivian’s school transcripts show she is a studious girl, though there is a slight dip in her grades starting with her junior year. College transcripts are respectable, she majored in computer science and was able to pick up her degree in four years. She is currently employed by Waylind as a programmer, by all accounts her work is excellent, if her record isn’t marred by constant sick days where she finished her work at home.

Physical Description:
The color of Vivian’s Occula is confirmed to be a deep red, which shimmers with the activation of her powers, while her right eye is a clear sea-green. Out of the suit she cuts an unimpressive figure, she is a thin, frail, slim arms and a slender frame. Her complexion is pale, sickly seems the common way she is described by interviewed parties. A china doll to be handled delicately unless she be broken.

The features of her face are gentle, and be it by fate or design, she does not look the type to be moonlighting as a vigilante. She seems to prefer to keep her platinum-blond hair at about shoulder length, if not sometimes shorter, the tips always dyed a soft pink, with a longer strip of highlight on the right side of her head.

Reference Number:
E-689

Status:
Alive/Active

Area of Operation:
Detroit

Name:
Markus Robin King

Demographic Information:
  • African-American
  • Date of Birth: September 22, 1996
  • United States Citizen
Confirmed Alias:
  • Kingfisher
Threat Assessment:
Dextral - Elemental - Kinetic - Light

Markus is a man who knows how to do a lot with very little, his powers, as they have been recorded, are straightforward. He is able to collect, condense, and control the movement of light within his presence.

In practice he tends to work support for other Detroit vigilantes, using his powers to neutralize threats from a distance or keep his partners appraised of any situational changes. When used as a beam his powers have a nasty kick to them, leaving open flesh burned and chewing through cloth. The longer he is able to collect the light, the worse the effects. Up close he seems to favor bright flashes to blind opponents and keep them off balance.

As with most kinetics, Markus seems poor at the creation of light. Catching him at night and cutting the power should be sufficient, if ever required.

Background References:
Markus was born and raised in the south side of Detroit, and for most of his formative years his family struggled to get by in the waning city. Waylind, much as it had with the city proper, gave his family a second chance. Both of his parents landed jobs with the fledgling company in the early years, and by all accounts, their fortunes have been kind ever since.

Records do not show Markus having much contact with the vigilante scene in his teenage years, however his vigilantism began shortly after his family returned from a trip to Oregon. A visit to Brimstone seems the likely reason for the change in personality.

Since joining the Detroit scene, Markus has made a name for himself as Kingfisher; while he is not the strongest superhuman in the city, he has assisted many of the city’s other vigilantes in a supporting role. He is well liked and well respected within the circles he travels.

Physical Description:
Markus is a solid man. He is tall, broad shouldered, with the build of someone who doesn’t shy away from the gym. He has a scar on his left forearm, a slim silver line running from his wrist almost to his elbow. His skin is a chocolate brown, his black hair cut down close to scalp, and his left eye dark. His facial features are solid, prominent cheekbones, a string jaw bone, and a large nose with a knot on the arch from what looks to be a previous break. His Occula is iridescent, the colors striated like those found within a rainbow.

For his size, Markus is incredibly agile. He has, more than once, ghosted his way behind fellow vigilantes on gravel topped roofs.

Lia Jung

Demographic Information:
Female, Asian/Caucasian mixed descent
Date of Birth: January 8th, 2001, Toronto, CA
Dual citizenship: South Korea and Canada

Confirmed Aliases:
Receiver

Threat Assessment:
Sinistral - Sensory - Extraneous Perception Ability

Lia’s Occula allows her to communicate with inanimate objects in her vicinity. She insists that each specific object has a certain type of information it's able to convey, as well as a certain degree of reliability. Experimental data has shown that Lia is able to gain information through these communications that she otherwise might not have had access to, so it is accepted that her ability grants her some degree of extra sensory perception.

However, given the peculiarities of her particular manifestation, there are many questions as to whether Lia's ability actually works in the manner she claims it does, or whether her perceptive ability is something misunderstood by her and masked by her mental state. Her frequent insistence that she isn't insane generally only serves to acerbate the situation.

As such, she is generally not remanded into combat potential situations, though her ability has shown exceptionally useful in investigative situations.


Background References:
.
Summer, 2009:
“I’m really not crazy,” Lia said offhandedly to the ceiling, leaning back in her chair. “Really.”

“I know. It’s all right. Don’t worry about it.” Ceilings were very soothing. Not like floors. Floors were… downtrodden, often. She tried to mitigate that, by walking along the edges where she could, or by stepping carefully on each crack, because most people avoided them.

“I try not to worry about it. I think other people worry about it, though. About me.”

“Does that bother you?”

“Sometimes. I just… sometimes I think I should tell someone. And then I don’t, because I don’t know what good it would do.” She looked to the window, for a different perspective.

“You should get under the desk now.”

“What? Why?”

“Because a bomb’s about to go off outside. Good-bye.”

She closed her eyes and covered her ears as the world exploded through the window, leaving only shards.

"Good-bye!" they called, high and sharp and scattering, "Good-bye! Good-bye! Good-bye!"
.
During her early childhood, Lia's Occula led her through a series of misdiagnoses - from attention deficit disorder to autism to schizophrenia, none of the labels quite fit her correctly. She spent a great deal of time in therapy, both in- and outpatient, but none of it seemed particularly helpful. Since her nonstandard mentality didn't seem to tend towards violence, it was eventually established that she just be allowed to continue as best she could, though she was never able to be mainstreamed into the public school system, and was educated privately by tutors when she was young. The 2009 bombing of the Hartford Apartment Complex took the lives of her parents, which ended Lia's private tutoring. She was sent to live in a juvenile mental health facility, under the hope that the doctors there would be able to help her become a functional member of society.

It was not until 2013 that her ability was recognized for what it was.
.
Summer, 2013
“So, you could find out what I ate for breakfast this morning from this eraser.”

“Oh, no, sir.” Lia shook her head firmly, “Erasers are terrible sources of information. They always omit things. Pencils tend to be much more knowledgeable, but they’re not always accurate.” She paused, carefully, then added, “I’m… really not crazy.” She wasn’t sure if it was, perhaps, too late to be adding that part.

“A bit late, yes,” the desk agreed, as she glanced down at it, “But he’s used to it.”

“Oh?”

“Oh, certainly. Half the people that come through this office are crazy.”

“I… don’t know that that actually makes me feel any better.”

“Don’t worry. You’re not the sort of crazy that causes accidents.”

“Well, I certainly try not to.”

“Lia, what are you talking to right now?”

Oh. She’d forgotten he was there.
.

Given the preponderance of inanimate objects in any area, Lia is constantly filtering a stream of other information and conversations, often leading to her appearing distracted. She has difficulty maintaining relationships with other people, as well as difficulties communicating effectively. Despite that, she has always done well with schoolwork and is a very bright young woman, just one who often finds it challenging to effectively use that intelligence in a way that makes sense to the people around her.

Physical Description:
Her Occula appears as flickering motes of various hues of blue on a dark blue background. It is unknown what it looks like when it is not active, as Lia’s ability seems to be constantly engaged - this being one of the main reasons it was not properly diagnosed for so long.

Her other eye is brown, with dark brown hair and features hinting at Korean descent. She's slightly built and small of stature, and while she's perfectly fit from a health perspective, she is not particularly athletic nor inclined towards any special physical abilities.

Threat Assessment
Dextral - Kinetics/Joker - Force and Matter Translocation

Subject has the ability to alter their position in space instantaneously. While this description is limited to observational data, it is assumed this power is translocative, and by extension, linear, instead of a literal destruction and reformation of matter. As such, it is theorized the ability either functions by altering space in some way or by generating some form of extraspacial "tunnel" between the point of disappearance and reappearance. The latter assumption is supported by an observed displacement of air both in the point of disappearance and the point of reappearance -- the first marked by a rush of air to fill the location the subject departed, the second by an expulsion of air from the location the subject comes to occupy. It has not been observed whether or not the subject is capable of displacing solids. This ability appears limited by the subject's ability to see the location of reappearance, though whether this line of sight is direct, through physical means, or indirect, through live feeds and mirrors, is inconsequential.

A secondary affect of this ability, and the reason for the subject's classification as a kinetic, is their power to redirect, augment, or diminish whatever momentum they maintained before disappearance. While the subject has, on several occasions, arrested their momentum when falling by translocating to the ground or a nearby rooftop, they have also been observed disappearing while running then reappearing without any noticeable halt in speed.

While the subject has been known to engage in criminal acts, their age, avoidant nature, and non-destructive abilities has led to a threat assessment of Safe.

Surveillance is suggested, though immediate intervention is unnecessary.

Background References
Subject is unidentified, pending investigation.

Subject has been identified as Alice Roben, the child of Erik and Maria Roben, Second Generation Armenian immigrants living in East Ukrainian Village in West Town, Chicago. Their father is a manager at Windy City Mini Mart, located at 1756 W Chicago Ave, and their mother works from home as a freelance author. They live in a rented townhouse at 920 N Hermitage Ave. The subject attended Lincoln Elementary School and presently attends Joseph L. Brock Middle School. Attempts to attend academic and behavioral records from both locations proved initially unsuccessful, legal authority pending. Starting 12 December 2017, the subject began to commit minor crimes, robbing local car dealerships and electronics stores. Archival CCTV footage of the incidents has been obtained from the local division of the CPD.

Physical Description
The subject is a thirteen-year-old girl. At the time of their last medical examination, They were 5'0 and weighed 107 lbs. They have brown/black hair that falls to just above their shoulders, tan skin, and several moles on their face and arms. While not observed, medical records indicate the potential presence of scar tissue on their lower left abdomen. The subject's Occula is milky white, appearing similar to a cataract, though this does not appear to affect their vision.

United States Legal Permanent Resident (2 years)
Birth Country: Germany

Confirmed Aliases:
Wunderkind
Genius
Mirrorhead (Current)

Threat Assessment:
Sinistral - Sensory Enhancement - Intrinsic Cognition

Elias's Occula allows him to observe and examine motion and momentum of objects perfectly. It also gives him an intuitive understanding of physics as pertains to motion, letting him comprehend and process the information he collects at inhuman speeds. At his best, where pure motions and collisions he can see are involved, he is practically precognitive.

In a more advanced and taxing use of this power, he can also percieve small tells in the movements of other people, essentially "reading" them for their next move. This is also an asset in combat, compensating for any lack of directly applicable powers. In addition, he can use his perfect knowledge of previously observed movements to mimic someone else's, down to the exact muscle movements if necessary.



~~~~~~
The following is an abridged transcript of the interview of one Elias Miller, for the position of Junior Mechanical Engineer, conducted by Harry Trent.

"Welcome, Mr Miller. I am glad you were able to meet with us today."

"Likewise, sir."

“Please, call me Harry. Now, how about you tell me a little about yourself.”

"What is there to say? I was a good kid, did okay in school. I had a gift for physics, as I'm sure my file says."

Elias gestures to his left eye for a moment.

~~~~~~~

Childhood was awkward; Elias never had a large interest in friends. He was more interested in whatever he could get his hands on, to the point where a young Elias would frequently knock things over just to watch them fall and tumble. Even as he grew, his fascination with things only grew into an interest in machines, while his social life remained distant and anaemic. Which was fine for him. He could never interact very well with people, when everything they did sent a shower of much more interesting information for him to focus on.

~~~~~~~

"So, previous work experience!"

"I have a little as an assistant mechanic in an auto workshop."

“And you’re willing to get your hands dirty if it’s needed for the job?”

"...Sure."

“Good, good. Now, at your previous employer, did you ever have any coworkers you just couldn’t get along with? How did you handle that?”

"Not that I recall; everyone was professional, at least where I was involved."

~~~~~~~

The workshop wasn't a bad job, though it wasn't a good job, either. Elias was able to compartmentalize what he was seeing and what his talent was seeing at this point. He always knew what to do and how to do it, which was convenient. As a result, this sort of work was easy. Boring, even. Still, the best part of the job was less about the work and more about the people; that nobody seemed to want to bother him.

~~~~~~~

“So, when would you be able to start?”

"This week."

"Great to hear."



Elias's Occula is a metallic grey that reflects its surroundings. The clarity of the reflection depends on how much he is focusing on it, from a dull sheen to a mirror finish. Interestingly, the reflection has not been seen to completely fade away, perhaps because the associated power is always active to some extent. His right eye, by contast, is a calm blue. His cheeks are somewhat sunken, sporting an otherwise unremarkable face.

Elias is of average height and weight. He is lean-built, but has physical strength that is, while unaltered supernaturally, indicative of someone who undergoes semi-frequent strength training. Despite this, his skin is very fair, like that of someone who habitually avoids sunlight.

Alive/Active; permit expired.

Name:
Emma Dumont

Demographic Information:
[*]White
[*]Born December 7th, 2000
[*]United States citizen.


Confirmed Aliases:
Shaman. Chemo. Pain Pill. Overdose.

Threat Assessment:
Dextral - Molding - Regeneration.

Emma is capable of stimulating rapid cellular growth through direct physical contact. This process is “always on,” although Emma has reported that she is able to prevent it from taking effect through concentration. The growth process follows an observable pattern, and can be divided up into several stages.
Emma will be referred to here as “the agent,” and subjects who have been exposed to her ability will be referred to as “patients.”
Stage 1:
If the patient is human, and has not recently been exposed to the agent’s ability (timeframe: one day), agent’s ability will induce extensive regeneration. Pattern of regeneration generally conforms to the patient’s idea of a “fully healed” human body, with some variance (agent’s ability has not been observed increasing a patient’s physical fitness, for example). This process is not bound by the limits of ordinary human regenerative capability. The agent’s ability has been observed resetting improperly set bones, restoring failed or failing internal organs, and even regrowing lost limbs. More extensive regeneration may take longer than the “safe” four-second window for stage 1, and must therefore be spread across several sessions in order to prevent harm to the patient. Changes directly caused by the agent’s ability are purely physiological in nature, and do not seem to cause any physical discomfort.
Testing suggests that while this stage does induce the fatigue in the patient associated with later stages, the euphoria associated with this process renders it imperceptible. While she was enlisted in the program, the agent was banned from attempting to treat patients with histories of severe head trauma, and whether she has attempted to do so since exiting the program is unknown. Researchers in the field of neuropsychology have strongly recommended against exposing individuals with any such condition to the agent.
Stage 2:
If the patient is nonhuman, or if agent remains in contact with a human patient for a period exceeding the “safe” four-second window, the patient will rapidly become exhausted. During this stage, regeneration will continue in human patients at a declining rate, until the patient loses consciousness. The rate at which patients lose consciousness appears to be dependent on the patient, but rarely exceeds four seconds. Contact between agent and patient must be broken at this point to prevent lasting damage.
Stage 3:
If the agent remains in contact with the patient after loss of consciousness occurs, the patient will begin to develop tumorous growths. Tumors will continue to grow until agent breaks contact. In stage 3, tumors are always benign, and can usually be removed safely so long as contact is broken before stage 4 begins.
Stage 4:
Growths at this stage will continue to grow even if the agent breaks contact, albeit at a greatly reduced pace. Stage 4 is easily discernible from stage 3, as the patient’s growths will begin to glow.
Stage 5:
Patient detonates. Agent will likely be incapacitated by proximity. Please see incident log H-5901-037 for a more detailed explanation of this process.

Background References:
Emma Dumont was born in Detroit, and was raised at 302 36th street. Her family was middle-class around the turn of the century, but the city’s tenuous economic situation, coupled with the stresses and expenses associated with raising a child with an Occula, strained the family’s finances. Her parents, Lucas and Camille, continue to struggle with debt; Camille is currently unemployed and seeking work.
Emma was licensed at a very young age, and given limited training to help her manage her abilities. Training primarily focused on avoiding excessive physical contact. When it was determined that she was old enough, she was asked to assist in a number of minor experiments to determine the effective parameters of her ability. Prior to incident H-5901-037, it was not known that stages 3 and 4 applied to humans. Emma was also given permission to visit several regional hospitals, where she used her ability under strict supervision to assist seriously ill patients in recovering.
School reports suggest that Emma had difficulty interacting with other students on an informal level, and had anxieties about physical contact of any kind. Reports filed following incident H-5901-037 contain many lurid details indicating some form of antisocial personality disorder or schizophrenia, but given the atmosphere in which these documents were filed, their credibility is considered suspect.
Following the incident, Emma escaped custody and fled to a derelict section of the city, where she took up residence in an unoccupied apartment. She now operates a back-alley clinic, which she uses to pay for rent. While many of her clients are clearly criminal, her presence in the area is considered a net benefit; at this time it is recommended that no action should be taken to bring her into custody or in any way threaten her operations in the area. There has not been a repeat of incident H-5901-037 in the two years since, although on three occasions individuals with patterns of tumorous growth consistent with stage 3 have been admitted to hospitals near Emma’s clinic.

UPDATE: Emma Dumont, “Shaman,” fell victim to an arson attack perpetrated by ██████████, “Firebrand.” Firebrand was apparently attempting to consolidate local criminal resources, and is reported to have issued an ultimatum to Shaman the day prior to the attack. No sign of Shaman’s corpse was found on site, although large amounts of blood and skin was found that matched Shaman’s DNA pattern. If she is still alive, her condition and whereabouts are presently unknown.

Physical Description:
Emma is roughly 5’3”, very slight, and tanned. Her hair is dark brown, and is worn in a short ponytail. Emma typically wears heavy clothing, even in very hot weather, and always wears gloves. Emma appears athletic. Emma’s Occula is lime green. Activation of her ability causes it to darken, until it turns fully black; this does not appear to correspond to any stage change. Her unaffected eye is brown.
