Powers and Abilities

The Viscountess lugs around a G8 – an advanced version of the G3 battle riffle that can function both as an accurate rifle and a light machinegun. She also wears a jumpsuit of light body armour of her own design, which includes a prototype for a very light, flexible strength-enhancing armature.

She’s also a tinkering technologist (particularly when it comes to explosives, having designed her own kind of web grenades and demolition charges as well as her enhanced jumpsuit) and a confirmed criminal.


History

The daughter of fiercely anti-Communist parents, the rebellious N’Guyen grew up a rabid Communist hardliner in Berlin. She was born a bit too late, however, to join the “glorious” Baader-Meinhoff years, and only managed to catch the tail end of the RAF before it was consigned to the dustbins of history.

Bitterly disappointed, N’Guyen shed her intense but superficial ideological agenda and simply became a professional criminal in the mid-1990s. She eventually joined Fenris, the wealthy terrorist organisation led by Andrea et Andreas Strucker, and was made a special agent, along with several other highly skilled or superhuman operatives (see the writeups.org entry for Fenris).

N’Guyen distrusted and disliked the Struckers, however, and soon the female members of the crew were more loyal toward her than toward the twins. She took the logical next step and broke away from Fenris along with the girls.

Her splinter cell, the Fenris Fraktion, mostly operates throughout the world as a mercenary crew. The Viscountess has been negotiating with HYDRA, though – but nothing has come out of it yet.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Tough, authoritarian and direct. She’s a fan of 1980s cartoons, and named herself as a weird wink to the GI Joe’s Baroness.


Quotes

“Whoever moves, he gets perforated, okay ?”
