Nova isn't here to make friends. She's here to get a job done, at whatever cost that may have. She's as vulgar as she is merciless, and she doesn't take shit from anybody, even if that means causing more bloodshed than is necessary. Whilst she may be a fundamentally cruel and unlikable person, Nova will work on the side of 'good' occasionally... provided that they're paying her enough. Most of the job she takes involve fighting or killing, and there's a damn good reason for that; Nova is really violent. She will beat, shoot, and stab her way through pretty much any assignment, so don't even consider hiring her if you don't want blood on your hands. Her moral compass points towards the money, so she's not exactly the most trustworthy character. Not like it matters, though. Why the hell would you want to trust her with anything?

- -ABILITIES- -

NANOTECH//ENHANCE:
Nova's blood contains millions of tiny nanomachines that enhance her physical capabilities to just beyond that of a trained professional and allow her to recover from minor injuries, provided those injuries draw blood. She's a little bit stronger, faster, and more durable than most, but it's only barely at the threshold of being considered supernatural. The presence of the nanomachines in her blood means that she's immune to almost all disease and most poisons, provided that they're not corrosive enough to damage them. It also makes her blood glow pink when spilled, which is pretty cool.
x

NANOTECH//INFECT:
If enough nanomachines are able to gain access to another person's blood, then that person will develop a condition known as Light Fever- so called because the nanomachines collect behind the iris and cause their eyes to glow a faint pink colour. The condition is mild, in most cases (i.e. accidental infection through her blood splashing on an open wound), but it can be quite serious if Nova chooses to deliberately infect someone (i.e. injecting the nanomachines directly into them). The effects of this condition include nausea, headaches, slow movements, and possible hallucinations, as well as a high temperature and sweating associated with regular fevers. In mild cases, these pass within a week, but in severe cases, they pass within a week, as the condition worsens quite rapidly.
Image
Another fun thing to note is that, in severe/fatal cases, the light that glows behind the person's eyes will completely blind them on the final day of their life.
x

NANOTECH//INHIBIT:
Nova can't feel pain anymore. She can still feel discomfort, and she knows when she's being injured, but she can't feel any sort of pain. She also can't feel exhaustion or tiredness, even though her body is able to get tired, so she often fights until she literally collapses from the strain. Another thing that the machines have stripped from her is most human emotion. Nova feels either irritation, boredom, or sadistic glee at any one time. Fear, sadness, empathy... all of those have gone. She's cold now.
x

The nanomachines were developed by a mysterious technology firm called ABeL//Tech (Advancements Beyond Life) and were allegedly forced upon her against her will. This can't be verified, however, since ABeL//Tech went off the radar completely and Nova has no memories of who she was before waking up in their lab. She has the faint memory of being referred to as a weapon by people in ABeL, but nothing has happened to her in relation to that. Whatever human weapons program she was on has clearly been abandoned.

Aside from her glowing pink blood, there are a few other ways in which the nanomachines alter Nova's appearance. Firstly is her right eye- or lack thereof. Instead of an ordinary eye in her socket, she has a glowing pink orb, which acts as the central node for the nanomachines' communication. It can't function as well as a regular eye with regular vision as the image quality resembles an old VHS, but it is able to zoom and focus on distant objects. Secondly is her right arm, which is entirely mechanical from the elbow down.

LIGHT//RIDER:
A black motorcycle, covered in LEDs that shift from pink to teal. It's almost completely silent when it moves and it can go so fast that it's technically not road legal, and Nova uses it to get around. It can only be turned on by the nanomachines, and any unauthorised person who tries to access it whilst it's stationary will get a paralysing electric shock.

SUBMACHINE//GUN:
Nova keeps this with her at all times,
Image
but it hasn't got any fancy upgrades. It's just a gun. She carries ammo with her at all times, and frequently restocks, but it isn't her main weapon. Her aim isn't the best with it, and it's often used for just gunning down large groups of people as opposed to attacking a single target. A fun thing to note is that she doesn't really get affected by recoil if she uses it with her right hand, since it is entirely mechanical and has really good suspension at the wrist which absorbs most of the force.

FORTIFIED//NEON:
Two neon tube lights that have been strengthened at the sides to be almost unbreakable. They're very heavy, and can be used as a dangerously effective blunt weapon. Nova uses them in hand-to-hand combat to deflect attacks and bludgeon enemies to death. They are her main weapons, and are sort of a signature of hers. Nova doesn't always use both at the same time; sometimes, she will just use one and store the other one by her bike or on her back. However she chooses to wield them, she's damn good at it. The extra strength from those nanomachines really goes a long way in letting her swing these around like they weigh nothing at all.

MECH//ARM:

Nova's right arm, from the elbow down, is mechanical. This arm doesn't hide a gun or enhance her strength or anything, but it does connect directly to her blood. There is a small needle hidden in the palm that enables her to inject her blood into whatever she grabs, but it takes a while to fill up and weakens her considerably whilst active, since the nanomachines are focused on the action in the arm. The weakness gradually lessens as the needle is put away, depending on how long it was out for. Because of this, Nova only really grabs and infects people at the end of a fight when they themselves are weakened, as the risk of someone just stabbing her in the neck as she is doing it is lessened when they haven't got the strength to.

GLASS//INTERFACE:
Those sweet shades aren't just for looks, they contain a screen that projects a display in front of Nova. This display contains facial recognition software which allows her to identify and track her targets, as well as her own vital information such as heart rate, energy level, and the status of the nanomachines. They also help protect her right eye from attack.


Most of the technology was provided to her by ABeL//Tech, and is kept in excellent condition. The blueprints and general details of these items have all been lost along with the people who made them, and Nova only has a faint idea of how they were put together. Not that she minds, though. As long as they're reliable, they could be held together by duct tape and string for all she cared.

OCULAR//NEXUS:
Breaking Nova's right eye will disable the nanomachines until she can get it properly fixed. This will render her unable to use the abilities that require the use of nanomachines (e.g. disabling all cases of NANOTECH//INFECT) and will make her body physically weak. Since she is so used to having the nanomachines help her movements, Nova has the relative physical strength and speed of a twelve year old child without them, so it's usually an instant loss.

Though it's not technically a weakness, Nova's lack of a moral compass means that she's often used to do very evil things by very evil people, and this can be mistaken for unethical manipulation of her... but she really doesn't care. Nova could be sent out by someone to unknowingly enter an unwinnable battle or to kill someone close to her, but she wouldn't give a shit. As long as she gets paid and is allowed to cause some violence, it's a victory for Nova.

In short, you ain't special because you got her to do something most people would never do in a thousand years. She would've probably done it anyway.

I take offense to the mix of brand names, specific drugs, and drug classes
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end
