Powers and Abilities

Snapshot has powerful telekinetic abilities. Triage helped her harness these into giving her the abilities to fly, and to focus into blasts of pure force.

She has also been provided with a suit of armour for protection.


History

Born into a branch of the royal family on her homeworld, Alyxandra was betrothed to her distant cousin, Prince Nicholas Hellicon.

This ended when she became infected with the Rapture, a hive mind that had invaded numerous worlds before hers. Nicholas escaped its grasp, joining other fugitives from it, known as the Sovereign Seven. This left Alyxandra a willing slave of the Rapture.

When Triage arrived on her world, searching for Cascade, he took Alyxandra, brainwashed her into his willing slave, increased her powers, and renamed her Snapshot. She joined him and Siege, and soon came into conflict with Nicholas, now known as Cruiser, and his team-mates, who managed to escape.

Attack, my minions!

They eventually tracked down the world the Seven were living in, and picked of their members one at a time. Eventually only Cascade, who had left the team, was left free. So they lay in wait for her return.

But Cascade had made friends on her journeys. Superman, then with electrical powers, accompanied her on her return. With his help Triage, Snapshot and Siege were defeated.

Triage began teleporting them away, taking Network to become his new slave. But Superman used his powers in a way that had previously disrupted Cascade’s.

Triage, Snapshot and Siege disappeared in the resulting explosion. Their current whereabouts and situation are unknown.


Personality

Due to her brainwashing by Triage, Snapshot is single-mindedly devoted towards fulfilling Triage’s agenda. Her main goals are destroying any taint of the Rapture that she comes across, and capturing Cascade.

Alyxandra retains the hatred for Cruiser that she had under the Rapture’s control, and enjoys hurting him and his friends.


Quotes

“Tell me, chunky – any idea what a snapshot is ? To some, it’s a photograph. But to those in the know, it’s someone who fires a killshot the moment she locks onto her target.”

“Care to talk some more of limits, lummox ? Yours are of the flesh. Mine are of the imagination, and the will ! In the end, guess who’ll win ?”

“Can’t run, sweets, can’t hide. Not from us.”
