Nightstar flying and blasting

Nightstar


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Nightstar is a character specific to a possible future of the DC Universe. This timeline  was chronicled in the landmark 1996 comic Kingdom Come.

She is the daughter of Starfire (formerly of the Titans), with a very similar power set.


Powers and Abilities

Nightstar has inherited many of the powers of her mother, Starfire, and has learned many of the skills of her father, Red Robin (formerly Nightwing, formerly Robin). She is capable of projecting powerful blasts of violet energy from her hands and can fly at amazing speeds.


Description

Nightstar is a very stunning young woman. She has long, night-black hair and slightly golden-tinged skin, and her eyes glow green. She wears a purple costume that could be described as quite revealing. When Nightstar flies, she leaves a trail of violet energy 2 APs (40 feet) behind her.


History

Mar’i Grayson has taken up the role of rumbler mainly as a way of rebelling against her father, Dick Grayson. In truth, her parents raised her better than that. She was actually just channeling aggression after the death (or maybe departure, as suggested by The Kingdom) of her mother.

Nightstar survived the destruction of Kingdom Come and currently lives with her father and “grandfather”, Bruce Wayne, as well as her new love interest, Ibn al Xu’ffasch.

In the timeline of The Kingdom she had taken up residence in New Oa as head of its security force and traveled to 1998 to stop Gog’s reign of terror.


Personality

Although she was a rumbler, Nightstar did not have a taste for mass destruction and injury to innocents. She is obstinate, strong-willed, and self-centered, but she is generally good at heart. Although she is rebellious toward her father, she cares for him very deeply.
