Gazelle (Salem's 7) classic appearance

Gazelle


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

Context

Gazelle is one of Salem’s Seven, a C-list but interesting team of mystical enemies of the Fantastic Four. Like the rest of the bunch, she first appeared in 1977.

The Seven received entries very early during the writeups.org project. So the profiles are old, not very good and chiefly based on their TSR Marvel Super-Hero RPG stats. They’ll have to be redone. I’ve also removed the History from this one, since it was a cut-and-paste of the section from other Salem’s Seven members.

In the meanwhile, you can check the somewhat more recent Nicholas Scratch character profile for a whole lot of context.

Powers and Abilities

Like her namesake, Gazelle can run and jump with great speed and grace.

Unlike her namesake, she is a skilled warrior, and can kick with great power and accuracy.


Description

Gazelle is a lithe, muscular woman with two-toed hooves and a strange ridge of hair from her shoulder blades to her wrists.

She wears golden jewels, and a red dress open to the waist.

She wears her hair in a high series of buns above her head.


Personality

Gazelle, like the rest of the Seven, is a skilled, savage warrior with a cause. However, unlike the others, she has a problem with gratuitous killing. While she’ll kill in combat without remorse, she opposes slaughter and sacrifice.


DC Universe History

There’s no need to retcon anything. Simply have Scratch drift in the Dark Realm until he comes to the fringes of the DCU, and have him summon the Salem’s Seven to rebuild New Salem in this new dimension.

How his attempts at building a town of mystically-altered beings would interact with the DCU’s mystic community is an interesting question. Sentinel would be a nice choice for his initial arch-foe in the DCU.
