Ig’nea

(and Rebel)


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

Context

Ig’nea was one of the major villains in the early 1990s comics series L.E.G.I.O.N. (and its continuation series, R.E.B.E.L.S.). The baddies in the book were often unusually dangerous, and Ig’nea was no exception.

Several early writeups.org contributors loved L.E.G.I.O.N., though the book apparently never sold well. But in a way this is a curse, since this means that our L.E.G.I.O.N. notes are an early work, mostly concerned with cranking out rough DC Heroes stats.

Powers and Abilities

Ig‘nea is a pyrokinetic. That is, she has the mental ability to create heat and flame at will.

She also has hidden powers :

  1. Brute force mind control.
  2. A subtler ability to “trigger” feelings in the minds of others. This magnifies latent fears, hostilities, loves and other emotions.

History

Originally introduced to as a new team applicant, Ig‘nea was accepted to the ranks of the Licensed Extra-Governmental Interstellar Operatives Network (L.E.G.I.O.N.) as a rookie recruit. She had been selected for her pyrokinetic abilities, intelligence and drive.

Shortly after her acceptance, however, sedition developed within the L.E.G.I.O.N. ranks. Vril Dox’s organization unravelled rapidly. Within weeks, internal treason and external mishaps had torn the Network completely apart. This left Dox with no alternative but to disband the L.E.G.I.O.N..

Dox had also fallen in love with Ig‘nea, and accompanied his new paramour to her home planet. This left his former teammates to sift through the bureaucratic wreckage left in the wake of his decision.

Treachery and treason

After accidentally eavesdropping on Ig‘nea, Dox discovered the truth. In addition to her pyrokinetic talents, she possessed the telepathic ability to play on others’ latent feelings. She could bring these to the fore and cause her victims to act on them without regard for consequences.

Under the guidance of her father, interstellar crimelord Max G’odd, Ig’nea thus had fomented the L.E.G.I.O.N.’s rapid downfall.

Enraged, Dox sought to bring Mr. G’odd to justice. But the crimelord was unexpectedly slain when his pet dragon, Rebel, broke free of its cage.

Dox later confronted Ig’nea, prepared to both kill her and be killed. However; he found himself unable to slay her. His feelings for her had been telepathically augmented, but they genuinely existed. He thus let her leave, along with Rebel the dragon.


Description

See illustrations.


Personality

Ig’nea is a rich little girl with nerves of steel and a heart of stone. She places no value over sentient life, and kills on a whim.

She’s also highly ambitious, and loved her father dearly.
