Powers and Abilities

Death Dance is a sword and unarmed martial arts mistress. She puts all of her soul and grace into fighting and killing.

In DC Heroes RPG terms, she uses a lot of Multi-attacks, Devastating blows and other aggressive manoeuvres.


History

Death Dance works for one of the two ultra groups operating for Rex Mundi in the absence of NM-E.

She and the rest of Quattro were involved in bloody thefts of nuclear weapons in former USSR military bases. They also attempted to stop Regina’s forces on the moon during the Break-Thru crisis.

Like most people who have worked for Mundi, she was left to hang when she was no longer needed. She and Meathook thus had to lay low for a long period of time. They were, however, found by Hardcase and gave him critical information about their ex-employer’s hideout.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Death Dance sees herself as a stylish, graceful artist of death.


Quotes

You know the Trine style ! I thought that was a legend !”


DC Universe History

Quattro is a good example of a small, mid-to-low-powered superhuman strike team. It could serve almost any master.
