Powers and Abilities

She has been possessed by the “Void Entity”, granting her huge powers over time and space. This entity is somehow related to the Orbs of Power that appears in WildC.A.T.s 1-4 and some times later. Void is an incarnation of this Orb.

Apparently, her body doesn’t exists any more. It is just an empty shell to contain the powers of the Entity.


History

Major Adrianna Tereshkova was one of Russia’s pre-eminent cosmonauts in the Mir Space Station program. But all of that ended on July 28, 1980. Her ship was destroyed by unknown space debris and plummeted to Earth to crash in the Atlantic. Major Tereshkova and her two crewmen were presumed dead.

The “debris” was actually a shard of the Void Entity that has journeyed through the time continuum. It took possession of Adrianna, using her as a vessel through which to contact Lord Emp. Emp was needed to deny the Gnome possession of the immensely powerful Orb of Power.

Stray C.A.T.

Void then stayed with the WildCATs in their war against the Daemonites. But she never seemed enthusiastic about this struggle. She merely served as fire support and transport.

Once in a while, she saw images of global destruction. Void would then the team into action to prevent it.

Void eventually met Providence, another woman possessed by an incarnation of an another Orb of Power. Their powers are comparable, but they are unable to sense each other’s presence.


Description

Void looks like a woman covered by a silver body glove only revealing her face. Her face looks like normal except her eyes are completely white.

She speaks with a strange voice as her texts are always drawn with an odd pattern around them.


Personality

She hardly takes initiatives of her own in the normal course of action. But when she’s hit by a predictive flash, she *will* make people listen to her. As these flashes always sound as bad news, she tries to avoid the disastrous outcome she predicted.

IMHO, it’s a character that should stay an NPC. Playing her might be boring given her usual course of action, and her most important feature (Precognition) is controlled by the GM.


DC Universe History

When the Anti-Matter wave ripped into our universe, Soviet cosmonaut Adrianna Tereshkova and her crew on Mir, happened to be sitting right on top of the invasion beachhead. Without warning, Qwardian Shadow Demons ripped the small station apart, killing nearly all the occupants, but, strangely, leaving Tereshkova unscathed. Until she attempted to attack one of the Shadow Demons, anyway.

At that point, the cosmonaut and destructive force (with a subtle intervention by the Monitor) merged into one. With her newfound powers, Tereshkova destroyed the remaining Shadow Demons with ease. She was about to try to find the source of the Shadow Demons, but was stopped by the Monitor, who opened her mind to the scope of the Crisis, and asked her to join his army.

Calling herself Void, Adrianna worked well with Kimiyo Yoshi, the new Dr. Light.

Post-Crisis, like so many others, Adrianna came back to a universe that didn’t remember her. She learned that the Mir station was never destroyed, and that Adrianna Tereshkova had now been transferred back to land duty.

However, unlike others, Void felt her emotions slowly slipping away. She worked with Firestorm during his crusade to eliminate the world’s nuclear arsenal, but left when she realized the Nuclear Man would fail. Void has not been seen since.

Design notes

I mystic linked Invulnerability to Spirit, because I like the idea of having a power mystic linked to its equivalent Mystic Attribute instead of Aura.
