  • Marital Status: Single
  • Known Relatives: O’Dare clan
  • Group Affiliation: O’Dare clan, OCPD
  • Base Of Operations: Opal City
  • Height: 5’7” Weight: 130lbs

Powers and Abilities

While she’s the youngest O’Dare, she’s perhaps the best symbol of the clan : as reckless as her brother Mason, as hot-headed as her brother Matt, as good-looking as her brother Barry. She’s an excellent markswoman, and highly acrobatic, as well as a good police detective.


History

Opal City, a city with a retro look and an ambiance like no other, is home to the O’Dare clan, a large family of Irish descent. Everyone born a O’Dare has been a cop since they settled in Opal City ; the father of the current batch of O’Dares was a close ally of the first Starman, and the O’Dares have protected Starman ever since the costumed hero saved his life.

The clan has had many chances to use their “special brand of something” during recent troubles in Opal City, including two crime waves launched by the Mist and a fight alongside the Shade against an immortal demonologist.


Description

Hope mostly wears casual, everyday clothes.


Personality

An attaching firebrand and dynamic young woman, Hope is the most gaelocentric of the clan, and is very proud of the O’Dare history and their Irish roots. Like the rest of her kin, she’s very courageous (having fought in numerous and heavy gunfights with distinction) ; always considered as the youngest by her brothers, she’s determined to match them deed for deed.


Quotes

“But when dad lived he was a cop. In fact there’s been an O’Dare in uniform serving Opal City since we first landed here. Eighteen eighty-nine that was, when the bastard English… (blah blah blah)
