Powers and Abilities

Jaculi is able to move at superhuman speeds for short bursts, around three seconds or so; She can do that often, with maybe only a second or so between bursts. How long she can keep these going over the long term is unknown.

She’s equipped with explosive javelins, which she’s skilled at using.

She reportedly has robust military training and combat experience.


History

The second Jaculi was recruited to the second iteration of the Jihad group. It’s unknown whether she has any connection to the original Jaculi. It’s possible their powers were the result of the metahuman experimentation performed by the Quraci government.

She was reportedly a former Việt cộng  elite trooper.

Jaculi II was part of the group which attacked New York City. Jaculi went on a rampage through the streets, killing and causing property damage. When the Suicide Squad arrived she found herself facing Deadshot, who shot her in the legs.

She claimed it wouldn’t stop her coming after him for revenge, and Deadshot said he believed her, shooting her in the head.


Personality

Aggressive and fanatical, Jaculi has the hatred of America Qurac looks for in its Jihadi’s. She took her anger out in the destruction of life and property.

Design notes

The exact mechanics of her speed are unclear, as is the gap required between bursts of speed.

It’s been stated the bursts are three seconds long, after which she stops to throw a javelin, so allowing her to sub for either AV or OV in a phase seems the simplest method of modelling it given the available data.
