6050 in-depth character profiles from comics, games, movies


Context

This one is pure, pointless, personal nostalgia.

Casus Belli  was the main, earliest monthly magazine in France for wargames, tabletop RPGs and related games.

In 1985, issue #26 had a big scenario for super-heroes RPGs, multi-statted to boot. Namely Marvel Super-Heroes RPG Classic and Superworld, though apparently the manuscript also had Champions and Villains & Vigilantes stats.

Unicorn was one of the Non-Player Characters in this scenario. She is presented here since she’s the one whose costume can most clearly be seen in the main illustration.

She is also superhumanly durable, with a minor healing factor .

Further, she can fly and sense danger.

Her powers also make her an amazing hand-to-hand fighter. She’s well able to engage the greatest martial artists and brawlers in the world.

As Janet Just, she is a gifted medical student.

History

One of Janet Just’s ancestors allegedly met with an unicorn, who granted her super-powers. These powers have apparently been transmitted from mother to daughter for generations, along with a great yearning to fight evil wherever it may lurk.

Janet studies medicine in Central City. When the scenario starts, she is among the newly-minted super-heroes who answered a classified for a mysterious new organization called Super-Heroes LLC.

This company offers considerable support to beginning super-heroes in the area willing to form a new team. Fully-equipped headquarters, lawyers, scientists, officially-recognized ID even in costume, vehicles, a salary…

Could it be too good to be true ?


Description

This beautiful lass can instantly have her costume appear – a silvery white, featureless full body suit. The forehead sports a unicorn-like horn that is actually part of her skull, and the source of her powers.

For some reason I can see her doing the Wonder Woman spin to change.


Personality

Just is a starry-eyed idealist, dedicated to stomping evil things whenever they rear their head. She is utterly uncompromising and driven – and, frankly, naïve.

However, her dedication to the high road is backed by an exceptional willpower.

She is a very nice and social person. But also a highly private one with some fairy tale notions about romance.
