Powers and Abilities

Wonder Woman is a warrior woman of extreme skill in both armed and unarmed combat. She is the master of many exotic weapons like the rope, bolo, or blowgun. Wonder Woman’s senses are all superhumanly sensitive.

Wonder Woman has an Aname-like relationship with gravity. She can jump to great heights and float or swoop down from any height. She often uses an attack from above ambush against more powerful foes.


History

Diana came to the world of men as her generations Emissary from Hidden Isthmus. Every generation an Emissary comes to recruit one hundred new women to live on the isthmus to expand their culture and knowledge. Wonder Women possesses all her mothers’ memories of when she journeyed here in the 1960s, as well as many of her grandmothers from her trip in the 1940s. She retains some memories from as far back as the Middle Ages.

Soon after her arrival on the coast of Georgia she came to the attention of the media following her battle with, and single hand apprehension of, a gang of immigrant smugglers (prostitution slavery).

Quickly she moved to Atlanta and became its defender. When the Hatini came Wonder Woman found herself allied with Superman, Darkest Knight and several others in the first incarnation of the Justice League. Due to her high profile with the press she became the groups face in the ensuing years.

Wonder Woman has returned to the home of her people several times over the years and has spawned a clone, Troya. Troya is growing up with Wonder Woman’s Clone Sisters and preparing herself for when she receives her Mothers spirit.

Over time Wonder Woman has recruited and sent to Hidden Isthmus a hand full of women. As she enjoys living the life in the world of men she is in no hurry to fill her quota of one hundred and return to the Hidden Isthmus.


Description

Diana is a tall statuesque brunette of intense, exotic beauty. She has the Muscles of an Olympic gymnast and moves like a Jungle predator. Wonder Woman will wear her Suit of Nano-tubes under her clothes if she is expecting trouble.

She favors the bright shades of blue and red when she is going to appear in public. Often she will dress in ways to accent her sexuality for the social advantage.


Personality

Wonder Woman is the emissary to the world of men. She is also series immortal of immense experience. She is often seen as arrogant, and sometimes is, in her mission among men. She is highly beautiful and aware of her beauty and how intimidating her size is.

Wonder Woman Knows her recruiting efforts are contingent on her success and flamboyance in mans world. She will sometimes do things in battle to make her legend grow rather than to settle things quickly.


DC Universe History

This Wonder Woman is a complete push over next to her DC counterpart. This WW and her JLA are much more ruthless than their mainstream namesakes. They could be fun as the secret manipulators behind a plot.


The Hidden Isthmus

A magical projection of land that can be attached to any landmass in the world but is always attached somewhere. It is inhabited by an all female race of serial immortals with varying level of magical skill. With the exception of the Emissary sent once per generation they want no contact with the world of men.

Serial Immortality [15 pts]

A character with Serial immortality can pass on their experiences and personality to either a direct child or a clone. A character can only have one descendent incarnation at any one time. Bothe the transferring character and the Clone will have some variety of token that both will have to be physically in possession of for the transfer to take place. There is no maximum range of transference.

When a character either reaches an advanced age or is dying (for a 25 HP fee) s/he can conduct a transfer ritual that acts like the Personality Transfer power except: Use is permanent, Recipient must be willing, and the recipient’s personality (if one exists) becomes convergent with the transferring one.

No skill or power of the new individual can be beyond its link attribute. If the attribute raises the power or skill automatically raises to as high as the original level. No attribute can go up more than 2 APs as part of the transference.

The resultant character will have all the memories of the previous but will almost always have personality shifts.
