Post by illirica » Thu Jun 07, 2018 7:14 pm


-=Capacitor=-
Name: Teja Docesznic
Alias: Capacitor
Status: Government-mutated human
Resource Level: Mid / Public Hero / R&D Specialist
Age: 27
Hair: Green (She's naturally a platinum blonde, but dyes her hair to fit the image she maintains)
Eyes: Green
Base of Operations: Mobile, frequently reassigned
Citizenship: United States of America, Slovenia (born in the US to Slovenian parents, she holds dual citizenship)

Personality and History:
Image
The daughter of poor immigrant parents, Teja grew up hearing about how many fantastic opportunities were available in the United States, and from an early age developed a strong sense of nationalism. While she would never be one of the natural geniuses, Teja is nonetheless quite intelligent, and in school stayed near the top of her class at school through hard work and diligence. Her passion was always for science and engineering, and most of her peers expected her to graduate high school and enroll in one of the top engineering schools. Teja's passion for country won out over her passion for engineering, and she chose instead to pursue a military career.

Her hard work and her I will do anything to succeed attitude quickly caught attention, as well as her ability to tinker with the often unkempt-and-malfunctioning military equipment, and after two years Teja was quietly invited to participate in a government sponsored program, during which she was subjected to experimental procedures in an attempt to give her special abilities. Naturally discussion of the procedures is classified information, so it is no surprise that Teja does not discuss them, but those higher up in the ranks are aware that the procedures were extremely unpleasant, and had both a low success rate and a low survival rate.

Teja, however, was able to beat the odds. By the age of 21, she had adapted to her enhancements and was able to continue her work as a special operative.

Special Abilities and Role:
Teja's main power is the ability to act as a power source. She is capable of storing an immense amount of power within herself, and of using it to power different devices. She works most directly with Research and Development, acting as a field-tester for different weapons and devices that are created by team scientists. As most soldiers aren't able to carry around a private reactor system, most of these devices are of the "proof of concept" variety, and unable to be mass-marketed.

Teja's love for engineering has served her well in this role as well, as some of the devices which she is given to test don't always work, or don't always work in the way they are supposed to. She often has to modify her equipment on the fly, trying to adapt it either to the specific situation or merely to a situation where the equipment does anything at all other than explode.

While Teja's power source ability can be immense, it is also finite - like any battery, she will eventually run out of charge. Once that happens, she is incapable of powering any special devices until she has a chance to recharge - either naturally over time, or by finding another source of power. She carries a standard assault rifle on the battlefield in case this comes into play at an awkward time, but the government has made it clear that when her power level zeroes, Teja's primary mission is to extract herself immediately.

Equipment
Given her role, Teja's exact equipment is always changing, depending on what the government has decided to assign her for any particular mission.

ImageBacklash Uniform: A light-weight uniform capable of absorbing any backlash from failed devices, including defense against explosions, electric shock, nuclear radiation, and low-level impact resistance.

ImageMobility Exo-gear: In several pieces, it fits over her usual uniform. Its purpose is to give Teja an excellent sense of balance, which serves in turn to slightly increase her accuracy as well as her apparent speed, because she doesn't need to slow down for difficult moves.

ImageShock Armor: A set of small metallic plates that Teja controls with her ability, they can be close-fitted to her body and serve as armor, or she can push them out to a greater distance using electromagnetism. Putting them at a small distance and allowing the electromagnetic force absorb impacts makes her capable of withstanding extremely heavy hits or long falls, including heli-jumps if need be. Teja is also capable of channeling an electric shock through any of the plates and discharging it into the environment or into an opponent.
ImageEnergy Shield: A personal energy shield, deflecting almost all attacks - Teja can power it for only a few minutes here and there. It requires a significant amount of power to activate, and then a lower level of power to sustain, so she has to decide when it is worthwhile to keep it active - using a continuous but lower level of energy - versus deactivating it and needing to reinvest the higher activation cost again at a later time.

ImagePlasma Gauntlet: Left-hand, releases a burst of super-heated plasma. Teja is accurate with it to 20 metres, but it doesn't charge well and after each shot takes longer to recharge before she can fire off another burst.

ImageDischarge Perimeter: A series of small metal darts, designed to stick to or into wherever they strike. Teja is able to imbue them with a joined electric current and create an electric fence around an area.

ImageEMP Burst: The last ditch effort, a double-edged sword. Knocks out all electronics signals in the area, and is also extremely unpleasant for Teja, dropping her energy level to zero. She claims it makes her nauseous every time, although with practice she's able to use it without passing out.

Alias: Capacitor
Being a public hero necessitates a public identity, and as such Teja's role as "Capacitor" is a matter of public record. She is not particularly interested in her own popularity, but she accepts it because it helps the government for her to be a public celebrity. Given Teja's innate emphasis on diligence and hard work, as well as her spirit of nationalism and her squeaky-clean record, she makes an excellent public role model for the government to portray, and is often held up as a paragon of virtue and model citizenship.

Excellent, more government capes I can forcibly transfer to my division.

You can certainly try, but I think you'll find she has a certain... resistance.

Gonna get myself banned for physics puns, for sure.

I think you'll find my offer particle-ularly convincing.
