Petra's primary ability is her magic, which takes on a red glow that moves with her control, allowing her the powers of telekinesis and flying. Although she's got an iron grip on her powers, they have a tendency to grow stronger and more uncontrollable with her emotions, so she's careful to watch herself. The main difficulty lies in her self control, as her telepathy ensures that she can hear thoughts quite clearly; the need to maintain her mental blocks and keep herself in check at the same time can be quite draining, not to mention how draining magic can be when used on a large scale.

Wanda Maximoff had always been a powerful woman; there was little she wanted out of life, but she could get what she wanted with little trouble when she wanted it. So when she wanted a child, it didn't matter that Vision couldn't give her one. She had her magic, and that was enough.

After nine months a beautiful little girl was born, named in the memory of Wanda's brother. From the start, it was clear that Petra shared her mother's powers, little crackles forming at the infant's fingertips whenever she was feeling particularly fussy. But she also developed some semblance of control along with her motor skills, learning to pick things up with her magic. She started small, with wooden blocks and stuffed toys, and as she grew learned to handle the weight of heavier targets. Wanda could feel her own powers draining away, bit by bit, into the girl, knowing that she would grow more and more human as her daughter grew more powerful.

Petra's power manifested in terrifying, often uncontrollable ways. For the most part, she was an agreeable, well-behaved child, but when her emotions got stronger, she'd lose control of her abilities, a red glow enveloping her and things breaking without even being touched. It was dangerous, and a risk to everyone around Petra. Terrified that Petra would lose control of herself and hurt someone badly, Wanda dedicated herself to teaching her daughter to rein her abilities in, to understand her powers and control them intricately.

Easier said than done. Petra's training was strenuous, and she took failure hard. Having understood her mother's warnings of the destructive effects of her magic when turned outward, Petra switched instead to taking her anger out on herself, her powers turning inward to form physical injuries in the form of scratches and cuts, sometimes to the bone. It was terrifying to watch, the way she'd just simmer with rage and cuts would split her skin right open.

It took a long time, but Petra eventually gained control, and the day came when the last self-inflicted injury sealed itself shut and another one never formed in its place. That was the day Wanda breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that she could let Petra take over her position. With that level of control achieved, Petra was sent away to the Academy to train with other budding superheroes, spending a good portion of her teen years learning to work with others, although she never really made many friends with them. Terrified of losing control, Petra built a barrier around her emotions, sealing herself away. She left the Academy upon its closure, got herself registered, and officially gained her title as the new Scarlet Witch when she was 18, gradually taking over her mother's place among the order of heroes. And now Wanda is almost entirely human, with Petra being the only person available to respond to the summons.

Raoul's really just a man with access to an unholy amount of guns and men on his payroll. It's no big deal, it's just business. He's typically in the presence of a number of men paid to ensure his safety, but he's more than capable of analysing his surroundings and taking care of himself.

As it turns out, not even a gunshot to the head can keep Sofia Falcone down. Following her near-miraculous recovery from her coma, Sofia bounced back with a vengeance, determined to regain her influence. She fought her way to the top of Gotham's criminal underworld, then entered a strategic marriage with Rocco Gigante to merge their families together. Raoul was born shortly after, Sofia's little prince.

If Sofia had ever loved anyone in this world wholeheartedly, it was Raoul. She spared no expense raising him, making sure that she acquired everything he could want or need. Every man on the Falcone payroll was well aware of how prized Sofia's son was, and any attempts to harm him were terminated with extreme prejudice. In return, Raoul dedicated himself to learning his mother's ways, determined that he would grow up to work by her side and eventually take over.

Not all the men in Sofia's life were as loyal as Raoul. Rocco, bitter at having to work under Sofia instead of with her, had been doing his level best to undermine her, trying to amass his own followers as discreetly as he could. With Sofia's vigilance, it was hard for him to gain any real power of his own, and his machinations were eventually discovered. Husband or not, Sofia couldn't let this betrayal slide, but she didn't have to, as Raoul stepped in and put a bullet between Rocco's eyes himself, as punishment for fucking with Sofia and to send a message to everyone else. The incident was proof that Raoul was truly becoming his mother's son—they had that in common, each being responsible for their own fathers' deaths.

It was no surprise, then, that Raoul turned out to be as ruthless as his mother. Cold and capable, he stepped up to the batting plate, the Falcone influence growing under his leadership, earning himself the nickname Byzantine in honour of his grandfather's legacy. By now, though he still defers to Sofia's opinion, she's all but given her blessing for him to take his rightful place at the head of their organisation. Constantly surrounded by men personally chosen to ensure his safety, Raoul sweeps through Gotham a fount of power, aware of his own influence and power while remaining wary of any heroes that may attempt to subdue him.

Talk spreads in Gotham quickly, and with the issue of heroes disappearing, he found that he couldn't remain happy about it for long. Certainly it meant that there were less enemies to look out for, but disappearing into nowhere was concerning, hero or not. When the Academy sent out its summons, men with their ears to the ground caught wind of it and brought the news to Raoul. So he's decided to turn up at the Academy too, to see for himself.

working in teams · reliant on sunlight · temper · arrogance

falling · claustrophobia · failing his parents' legacy · rejection

Sometimes it seems unfair that a hero should be able to fly, shoot starbolts from his hands, and do a double backflip off a building. But having spent more time training with his father, Theo much prefers the abilities that he can rely on, like his acrobatics and handy utility belt, having throwing stars and a collapsible staff on his person at all times even when dressed as a civilian. His powers of flight and starbolts are less reliable, and often restricted to daytime due to his Tamaranean side being reliant on the presence of the sun. However, he lacks the investigative and leadership abilities that Nightwing was known for, preferring instead to work on his own.
personality

|

Even for a hero as accomplished as Nightwing, a man has to settle down eventually. It was obvious that Dick should end up starting a family with Koriand'r, there was never another woman whom he had loved so strongly. Theo, born some years later, bore the evidence of his Tamaranean side clearly, both through his glowy green powers and his general exuberance. Yet somehow his stronger emotions tended to lean towards anger, or a sense of injustice, instead of his mother's excitement, and as a result he was never quite able to master his powers. The other factor, of course, was the sun, which he relied on heavily to aid in the powering of his starbolts. While he wouldn't call himself an absolute novice, it's still obvious to this day that his preference for his physical talents stems partially from the unreliability of his magic.

Dick's title as the second best detective in the world didn't have much effect on Theo either. Often acting impulsively and with that strong sense of injustice, Theo often found himself misjudging the fights that he got into, coming out the worse for wear. It took years of training, both with his parents and at the Academy, before he realised his full potential, switching roles from nighttime vigilante to recognised superhero, patrolling the streets of his native Blüdhaven in Nightwing's place.

Theo's preference of working alone to as a team led him to establish himself as a solo hero, although he continued to maintain contact with his old friends, like Alfred and his uncle Jason, whom he looked up to even as Dick disapproved of Jason's notably more violent approach to things. Coming back from the dead meant that old age wasn't quite as large an obstacle for Jason, maintaining his strength and intensity, so when he disappeared while investigating a villain one day, it didn't take long for Dick and Theo to take notice. The disappearances had been going on for a while, but Jason's confidence in his own abilities was enough to keep him going, right up until he vanished. For the past few months, father and son have been searching desperately, chasing down any lead possible to no avail. Alfred's summons came as a gratefully accepted lifeline, and even though he's not excited about the other heroes that the Academy has no doubt summoned, Theo's on his way back to his old school to seek help.

physical fragility · lack of training · alcohol dependency · unemotional

death · flying

Devyn just so happens to be lucky enough to inherit her mother's meta-gene, which gives her the ability to produce high-frequency shockwaves through her voice, which she has absolute control over. Whether it be singing or screaming, even a whisper is enough to knock a fully-grown man over if she puts enough energy into it. She lacks training, however; whatever power her voice affords her is eclipsed by her lack of physical ability. She knows enough hand-to-hand combat to keep herself safe on the streets, but is not strong enough to be considered exceptional by any means.
personality

Devyn never knew her father. Some guy, just special enough to keep Dinah Lance occupied for a year and a half before moving on with his life. She wised up quick, and let him go, even as she knew that she was pregnant. So it was always just Dinah and Devyn, the spitting image of each other.

Dinah herself was still just a girl, really, fairly young to be a single mother in her little apartment. Sure, she had that whole Birds of Prey thing going for her, but it wasn't exactly the babysitters' club. Devyn spent little time around her mother's vigilante buddies, and when she died trying to test her luck against impossible odds, when Devyn was barely a teenager, she didn't even want to speak to any of those women. Fat lot of good they'd done her mother. Devyn went to live with a distant cousin, moving across the country to Washington, and tried to put everything behind her.

She'd inherited more than her mother's meta-gene, though. There was no ignoring Gotham City; the place ran in its citizens' blood. Devyn grew up just fine, keeping to herself, unable to find peace in anything she did. She'd go to school, get into fights, spend as much time in detention as she did in class. She'd find a part-time job answering phones or scooping ice cream, and three months later she'd quit for no reason other than a vague, itchy feeling that she didn't belong. By the time she graduated high school, her résumé was almost as long as her arm. And still the itchy feeling would not subside. Nothing brought her satisfaction anymore. Not late night drives with her girlfriends to a party in the next town. Not making out with whatever boy had caught her eye. Devyn drifted through another year knowing that she was on the verge of losing her mind forever to the boredom of her life, and when she couldn't stand it anymore she packed up everything she had and drove all the way back to Gotham City.

There, Devyn had nothing. She found herself, like her mother before, living in a tiny apartment and singing at a club to make rent. Maybe get paid extra to go back with a guy. It was a sad, back-end little sort of life... but she was happy. Nobody knew her name, and she didn't have to do anything she didn't want to. And once she'd had a run in with the wrong sort of guy and sent him flying with a scream, she was free to explore the extent of her powers until she had mustered absolute control over them. She always used them for her own gain, though. She was no hero. Devyn Lance looked out for nobody but herself.

Even keeping her head down, she couldn't ignore the rumours forever. Supers disappearing, and their successors being summoned to that fancy hero school... All sorts of stories are traded in the streets, and Devyn heard enough to begin fearing for herself. She wasn't anybody important, but she had powers that some people knew about. Maybe the wrong people. Afraid that she might be caught off guard and alone, she decided to head for the school, for the first time in her life ready to ask for help.

Riley's just a guy at the heart of it, just a man in possession of a series of weapons of his own design and a fairly formidable intellect. Despite his lanky stature, he's far from unwieldy, his flexibility and agility at levels the average person would be afraid to dream of. A lawyer by trade, he keeps his vigilante identity a secret as it would be considered a conflict of interest.
personality

|

|

|
calculative

Civilian life was never a feasible endgame for Clint Barton. There was always another war to fight, another enemy to take down. And when it became clear that he could not play hero forever, there was someone else to take over, someone to raise in his own image. That's where Riley came into the picture.

Let's not misunderstand anything; Clint loved Riley. But his love was a heavy burden, one that meant he always believed that Riley could be pushed further, harder, in the pursuit of perfection. Clint Barton had always given everything he could, especially as a man amongst gods, and now that the Hawkeye name was being passed down Riley was expected to keep up. Riley never had any misgivings about his position in society, even as a child. His position was at his community's back, as its defender, with no thought of acclaim or recognition.

The Academy was his home for a handful of years, the few shining years of his youth where he could be himself freely with people his own age. During that period of time, he gradually learned to stop looking back at his mentors after each session, anxious to see a stiff nod of barely-there approval; he was a wild, carefree teenager who also happened to be pretty acrobatic. It might have been good enough, except that Clint thought that Riley's training could be more rigorous and focused under his father's own wing, and so only a few short years flew by before Riley left the Academy, back for the safety of his home. In time he was registered with the I.H.A., and at the same time rose quickly through the ranks of a prestigious law firm, making partner in record time.

But that kind of training wreaks havoc on a person. On the surface, Riley was an articulate, quick-thinking lawyer with a piercing gaze that could make anyone want to confess the secrets of their lives. On the inside, though, he would forever be the vigilante chasing down another fight, bringing another enemy to their knees, always looking for the next victory that he could use to prove to himself that he was worthy of being Hawkeye, that he was worthy of being a Barton. He's come dangerously close to throwing everything away just for the sake of the greater good, even putting his life at risk for his victory.

With this new threat, there is no guarantee of victory. His father, taken in the middle of the night. His mother, safe, but still in critical condition. Riley, then, back at the gates of the Academy, seeking answers.

Penelope's deceptively weak appearance hides the strength that she possesses courtesy of her father. Able to endure most physical attacks, or at least bounce back from them, she's also capable of delivering blows strong enough to shatter the average human's bones. She has good control over her own strength, especially because she often doesn't want to use it, and has a tendency to shrink into herself despite having the ability to crush anyone that bothers her.

It often seems to Penny that her fate was fixed the moment she was born. A seemingly normal baby, her true nature was revealed just hours after her birth when she grabbed a nurse's finger and squeezed tight enough to cause fractures. Her screams brought Luke and two doctors running, and Luke knew immediately that his legacy would not end with him.

Luke and Claire had always been focused on serving the community, and it stands to reason that they would raise Penelope the same way, to always put others before herself and work to serve others. While she had no reason to deny the community her strength, Penny quickly realised that she would never be allowed to be a normal girl as long as she was able to lift cars over her head. The kids at school ostracised her, despite her best efforts to make friends, and she began to see her strength for what it really was—a burden.

Determined that she should learn alongside her peers, Luke sent Penelope to the Academy where she spent two years avoiding the other students and trying desperately to keep her head down. Upon leaving the Academy, she was allowed to return to school provided she continued to train with Luke. And as she moved through her classes, doing her best to ignore the other kids' stares and whispers (although she was happy to help whenever someone needed a bottle opened), she discovered that her true passion lay in literature and teaching.

For any normal person, that realisation would have set them on a path to their dream career. But for Penny, it was only a reminder that she was not a normal person, and that it was a future that she would never get to have. She did go to college, to get a degree in English, but once she graduated she found herself sucked back into the hero life alongside her parents. And with the distress call having been sent out recently, it was Luke's decision that Penelope should answer it, believing that she was capable enough of holding her own as a hero now.
