Name: Trinity Blue (formerly "Malicia the Destructor")
Alias(es): The Destructor; The Ancient's Daughter; Princess
Weight: 350 lbs
Age: Indeterminable due to unique biology and constant space travel
Birthplace: Aboard The Demon’s Fist
Details of her birth and early life remain a mystery to this day, including where and when she was born. The only details known of her past are that from an early age, it was known that she possessed incredible ability, and people feared the power she had and sought to destroy her. Her parents were killed while defending her from a large mob formed for that purpose. Her powers had not fully developed, and she would have suffered the same fate had not Nordok stepped in and rescued her, taking her before the mob could reach her.
At least, that's the story she was fed. In truth, Malicia was created aboard Nordok’s personal flagship for what appears to be the purpose of aiding in his subjugation or eradication of all other life in the universe. Though she had not existed long, most of her short existence under his thumb was misery. Her entire existence within his grasp consisted of procedures meant to increase her abilities, tests and trials to make sure she functioned as desired, and more physical and verbal abuse from her dark master. On a few occasions, Malicia tried in anger to fight against him, but his powerful mind and her lack of defense left her continually helpless in his wake.
To Be Born Anew
Having once again secured her loyalty following a failed rebellion, The Ancient sent Malicia to Earth to have her mind fortified to better defend against psionic attacks via ritual of his Shadow Brethren. A passerby during the procedure, however, the man-made goddess Lady Liberty spied the workings within the facility. While Kelly fought to dismantle the operation, the sorcerers completed their ritual. Ignoring her own pains from the procedure, Malicia went forth to engage the woman in combat, believing her responsible for the events of the Destructor’s “past” and her rival. She seemed to do well enough, except for a timely revelation that the goddess had been holding back during the entire affair in the planet’s atmosphere. After luring Malicia into outer space, Kelly launched an attack which nearly shattered her skull, rendering her unconscious.
Upset that his precious creation had been defeated, Nordok himself stepped forward, but was ultimately destroyed by the goddess as well, though the aftermath threw open a portal which swallowed both Liberty and Malicia, spitting them out on the other side of the universe. Lost, with nothing but one another.
Taken back to the Earth as a prisoner, Malicia was placed under the authority of the United States government, where she was to be questioned on motives and happenings, and possibly registered to work for the government as one of their super-powered enforcers in the wake of conflict over the Metahuman Registration Act.
This, however, was not to be. Shortly after her capture Malicia was able to break free, soon coming face to face with "the Goddess." Rather than a direct confrontation, however, Kelly was able to deter her with words, momentarily. She explained that the origin which Nordok gave was a lie and promised answers, though only at a later date. Upon her return search, however, Lady Liberty was not to be found. Dissatisfied, the Destructor set out with her own resources and manpower aboard the Demon's Fist to figure it out for herself, though all potential leads came to naught.
The Cosmic Shores of Illea
It wasn't until months later that she would actually come face to face with the goddess once more. Soon after returning from undisclosed activity outside the galaxy and receiving report of an Imperium vessel hijacked from a location on Earth, the Destructor went to investigate. To her sinister delight, she found the woman she had sought for so long (now stunted in her abilities), along with another—Vel’aaru of Illea (deemed unimportant at that time), were the culprits. Confronting Liberty head-on, demanding answers, though they were soon interrupted by the unorthodox defenses once entering Illian airspace. Plagued by vivid hallucinations, she was quickly disabled for the remainder of the journey to Illea, fitted with a device resembling a tiara made to keep her powers (those previously witnessed by the goddess) under control until another solution could be reached.
Once on the planet, Malicia was held as a captive, to be so until a solution could be worked out, though there were no real breakthroughs (or attempts, really) until Vel'aaru freed her momentarily upon promise of good behaviour.
Malicia had but one request, as always: to see the goddess and receive her promised answers. Finally, after a bit of speaking, Liberty was convinced to reveal the truth as promised. Lightyears away from the site where her supposed origin had taken place, and aided by her enhanced vision, Malicia was shown the absence of the events the Ancient purported.
Though swearing disassociation with the Imperium, trust had yet to be built. She was left without her powers, still a captive, hidden in various safehouses with the goddess until being set at Redwood Manor to stay. Powerless and unaccustomed to any conventional activities, days were dull in Lady Liberty's mansion. At times, she would leave for long periods and return with guests, but none held any interest, and the relationship between the two remained tenuous at best. But the Destructor had been thinking all along.
Change of Heart
I've been…nice. I don't work with the Imperium anymore…I don't want to be Malicia because I'm not her anymore.
Sometime much later, their relationship changed notably. After meeting with an associate, Liberty was approached by a seemingly different, more solemn Malicia. Appearing more softspoken than usual, when asked on the matter, she revealed that, in a show of change, she no longer wished to be Malicia the Destructor. It was an identity Nordok gave her as his tool; she had no use for it.
Thus she began life anew, as Trinity Blue.
Engineered to be a perfect weapon for intergalactic warfare and destruction, The Destructor was imbued with many abilities and traits which make her a phenomenal threat throughout the universe.
Perhaps most prominent of her early powers, Trinity was graced with incredible strength throughout the entirety of her body. In early modification and testing, her upper limit (lifting, pushing) was shown to be upwards of two million tons. Since then her strength has fallen and risen again. Stats have not since been frequently quantified, but the Destructor yet boasts massive strength capabilities as well as explosive movement potentials, enough to contend with gods and the physical bodies of cosmic beings themselves.
Her strength is not limited to the muscles in her arms and legs. Trinity’s vocal lungs are powerful enough to blow air many times faster and with far more power than the greatest storms to have ever graced the world’s surface, additionally heating or cooling her breath in order to freeze or burn. She would likewise be capable of a sonic scream.
In addition to her strength, her body is formed of incredibly dense and extremely durable tissue, necessary to keep her body from destroying itself under the strain of its own capabilities. Her body can repel even the highest calibre of bullets without a mark and she is highly resistant to most forms of damage, easily withstanding physical damage from most things short of a sustained nuclear strike and piercing/cutting damage from anything short of true adamantium. Trinity regularly travels unsheltered in the void of space, and appears highly resistant to temperature-based damage and effects. With the added density of her muscles and molecular bonds, she carries a deceptive 350 lbs on her lithe frame.
Trinity boasts impressive travel and combat speeds, steadily increasing from the time of her creation. Suggested that she is physically capable of moving near the speed of light, she has been known to limit herself in atmosphere, for fear of damage she may do to herself. Through training with Kelly Coltaine, she has learned to coordinate herself better even at higher speeds. And through similar training, mimicking a technique the goddess discovered while herself depowered, Trinity has learned to control her perceptions. In this, even without heightened physical speed she may in essence “slow time” by speeding her perceptions to the same levels as during near-lightspeed travel, allotting herself a larger window of opportunity to process, think, and act.
Each of Trinity’s senses has likewise extraordinary potential, beyond the scale of humans and even most aliens. Flexible in sight, her vision may be suited to track objects farther than the any earthly object known to man (telescopic vision) or acutely tuned capable of seeing the subatomic particles that make up any given being, and possibly even the quarks and gluons which make up those particles. At will she may shift and cycle her visual receptors in order to perceive in various wavelengths, different kinds of radiation, at various levels of light, and even through objects. She can feel the slightest shift in wind currents around her, detect minute vibrations in the ground or on a surface. But while her ability to register sound is impressive, she is incapable of hearing across media through which sound does not travel (i.e. directly across planets, in the void of space). And while sensory adaptation keeps Trinity from the constant bombardment of stray incoming sounds, intrusive sounds have been known to bypass her filter and sonic attacks have been a problem in the past.
Once heralded as her greatest weapon, Trinity can emit three kinds of energy beams from her body, most notably as lasers from her eyes. The first is a thermal attack capable of burning multiple times hotter than temperature of the Earth’s sun. The other, a concussive blast powerful enough to punch a hole right through a planet, and even the body of a god with ease. These effects can also be combined (thus comprising the third). This energy may be channelled radially or unilaterally. At full force, these attacks may be blow-for-blow more powerful than anything she could deal with her own hands. Any possible limitations on the power of these energy attacks have not been reliably measured, and it may be feasible that none exist at all.
Nexus of Evolution
In the beginning Trinity could manipulate her molecular structure to achieve a variety of different effects, most notably absorbing and taking on the properties of other things she came into contact with (a steel girder, wooden floor, et cetera). Using this on beings with some kind of ability or special properties would allow her to take on the same properties of that being for a time (e.g., a fish to develop gills, or special powers/abilities from others). This power she kept a secret from Nordok and Liberty alike for fear of what either of them might do.
Only after the loss of her other original abilities did Trinity begin to explore her adaptive biology, initially only accidentally, and without realizing. Her abilities, she came to realize, extend far beyond what she or anyone else understood.
While it was initially believed that absorbing the properties and abilities of objects and organisms was only temporary, this is not true. Trinity discovered that, upon absorbing the properties and abilities from another source, a copy, of sorts, of the material is catalogued and stored within her, able to be called upon at a later time. Additionally, her body incorporates many inanimate properties perfectly into a biological manifestation for potential application elsewhere. Synthesized within herself, she holds "genes" for such things as steel, plasma, energy types, and other non-organic substances. Processed through a one-of-a-kind adaptive information matrix which doubles as the carrier for her own biological information and incorporates a potentially limitless number of variations.
Reactive Adaptation: Given enough exposure to an environment or circumstance, Trinity's body is able to actively adapt to that circumstance, suiting itself to survive in such an environment, giving her potential for infinite survivability. This form of adaptation is completely natural and naturally passive; Trinity is not required to know how to adapt for her body to do so. It may, in fact, adapt in ways she would otherwise find aversive or not expect, as evidenced when her brain was rewired to allow her to function well when Lady Liberty physically assaulted her brain to attack her powers. However an adaptation can be overridden, provided Trinity knows how; and often, when an adaptation is no longer needed, it may be phased out. For this, Antonia Dain and Lady Liberty have given Trinity resources and aid in studying biology and herself. She has been trained to recognize certain symptoms and signs of a number of occurrences within her body in case of foreign tampering or issues brought on by her own physiology, and to combat them within herself; but this is a learning process, all understanding that experience would be her best teacher.
Evolutionary Nexus - Conduit: Trinity is not only capable of taking on traits of organisms and objects. She can pass those traits on to others or otherwise rewrite the genetic traits of others through contact. This can be selective or comprehensive, including shifting select facets and variations or complete alteration. By acquiring the genes of a subject, those genes are preserved within Trinity's biological catalogue. All evolutionary adaptations within that subject's genetic makeup, including active and passive genotypic traits, are likewise stored within her, and her phenotype can be altered accordingly. It is possible for Trinity to alter her own phenotype with no template for basis, though this would be essentially random, more difficult, and potentially dangerous, unless she knew exactly what she was seeking and how to achieve the change; it is preferable to have stored beforehand the traits she wishes to mimic. Absorption of certain portions of a subject's biomass would allow her to obtain understanding of that within, allowing her to take things such as memories and knowledge from those she comes into contact with.
Consumption/Mass Absorption: In addition to absorbing traits, powers and other physical properties, in contact with organic matter Trinity is capable of absorbing biomass. Among its purposes, any additional absorbed mass may be used to recover from all manner of physical damage including regeneration of severely damaged tissue or lost parts, boost muscle strength, physical endurance, and durability, and possibly more. [E.g, growing additional appendages, adding to her own mass.]
A Force to be Reckoned With
After catching wind of a slew of rumors regarding something largely referred to as "the force," thinking it similar to what Nordok called "the Will of the Cosmos," Trinity took it upon herself to study this phenomena and its perceived relation to herself. Although possessing no intricate knowledge to begin with, her studies have built upon a somehow strong foundation, revealing something of a natural affinity for these "force arts," even allowing her to channel her power through a previous connection given by the Ancient. Nascent potential emerging out of what seemed like nowhere, Trinity has realized a power over the fundamental forces of the universe. The "force" of the resources she has studied, she refers to as "the Cosmos."
Since commencing her studies, Trinity has managed to construct a plasma saber of her own. Its "hilt" is a device which projects ionized streams of plasma which forms the "blades." The edges are extremely volatile and superheated so that it can cut through nearly anything with merely a touch. A saberstaff, the hilt contains two crystals and is capable of splitting into multiple singular sabers, each end containing an individual saber crystal. These gems, specially tuned to the Cosmos by Trinity herself, power the saber. Learning that different effects can be applied to different crystals, Trinity has begun experimenting, attempting to create various kinds of crystals for her saber. Each is specifically attuned so that none but she can wield them, save for with her blessing.
Ancient's Folly - This compressed crystal emits a focussed, pulsating crimson blade. When locked in combat, its pulsating blade acts as a disruptor and adds an element of dissonance, offsetting opponents' strikes and, when locking up, making it nigh impossible to keep a competing weapon steady. It is possible to enhance this effect by channeling more power into the weapon. Enhancing her connection to the Cosmos, her powers become stronger when wielding this, but aversely, it also makes her more susceptible to rage, bringing her closer to "the Dark Side" as well as often overriding her already frail grasp on self-control.
Destructor's Might - This unstable crystal emits a crimson blade. It has the added effect of igniting a blade more potent than typical sabers. The unstable crystal means less focussed energy, resulting in something of an energy outpour, allowing more of its power to be felt by those around proximity when ignited. This effect may also be enhanced.
Her body being superbly durable, Trinity wears armor serving almost purely tactical purposes. Although built to withstand amounts of damage to prolong the duration of these tactical functions, it does not hold up as well in comparison to much other Avalon technology. Stealth technology in the suit allows her to mask her presence from vision, detection through temperature or scent, and detection by way of most scanning systems; however, while it silences sounds below a certain number of decibels (subtle movements, shifting, quiet whispers), sufficiently loud noise would breach the "silencing point." Sounds beyond this remain muffled, but will produce potentially noticeable effects and possibly allow her to be detected.
Excessive radiation in larger doses is able to harm her rather easily, and also causes problems with her molecular manipulation, potentially interfering with her molecular stability and sometimes causing unintended effects when using her powers. These effects are unpredictable and may range from completely shutting her abilities off or greatly enhancing them for a time.
Trinity is not known to be outright immune to any drugs. However, her body would quickly adapt to most or all foreign substances introduced to her system. While this means any effects from such things would be short-lived, were she to be exposed to any highly addictive mind-altering substances it would present an increased risk for developing lasting problems due to greatly increased doses, heightened effects from temporary overdose, and potential long-term damage as well as problem behavior. Due to the nature of her body's adaptability, however, it is unknown whether such things could ever actually kill her.
