This post is pretty much just here for my own reference, so deal! Ha!
Anyway, on Wednesday nights we play a HERO Champions game where we live in a world where Superheros really aren't well known (only one really well-known group in the world, and its in England!) and don't do much to help. Our characters got invited to this institute (Simmons Institute?) to basically work on their superhero powers.
My character is a Hawaiian gal named Leilani Wilson, who has a very colorful past. Basically, her dad is a higher-upper in the Air Force that got stationed in Hawaii years and years ago right out of basic training. He met Chiino, a Hawaiian native that taught a school of hula (basically just a way to make money off of tourists, ;)), and fell in love. Unfortunately, he went off to war.. Vietnam.. and didn't see her for years and years, but they kept contact as much as possible through letters. Once he got up in the ranks, he was given the choice to go to England or Hawaii. Obviously, he chose to go back to Chiino, and has stayed there ever since. They married not too long after his transfer there, and had four children: Noa, Maholani, Leilani, and Arthur, Jr. Chiino widened her horizons by making a really good business venture- she would train hula dancers (and still make mula from the tourists, of course), and "lease" them out to luaus. And, of course, her children were some of the first to master the art of hula. Time went on, and Noa (age 27), who had always had this burning love for motorcycles, learned how to build custom bikes and eventually opened up his own shop. Maholani (age 22), who was all that is the beauty of Hawaii (she's pretty much got a COM of 24, should I ever write her up), became a pagent queen with four titles under her belt, and is now a delegate for Miss Hawaii 2004. Arthur Jr (age 10) is still in the family tradition of hula, and loves surfing on his off time.
But Leilani is another subject. You see, she's a mutant... a mutant mentalist. Because of this, she was born with flaming red hair and the amazing ability to read your mind, control you, fly, regenerate, and, most horrifying, make you mentally see your own brutal murder as if you were watching it out-of-body. And even though she was raised to be this intelligent goody-two-shoes, eventually the fact that she had such brutal powers flowing through her body made her feel like she needed to just be an all-around bitch. Next thing her family knew, she started wearing leather and riding a motorcycle that Noa built for her. Yes, she became a rock star biker chick with an attitude. But, of course, this was only how she appeared. She actually got the idea from Noa. He too was a biker (oooobviously), and she had always been really close to him.. so he kinda aided in the transformation. He also decided that she had just the right kind of hottness, and asked her to work in his shop.. you know, use her beauty to attract men there, and then she could pressure them into buying a bike. Yeah yeah, but thats how it is.
Anyway... I wanted to put up some pictures of her superhero persona, Mara. I got the inspiration from Britney Spears, so until I can come up with a drawing.. yeah, you'll have to deal with screen shots from the music video:
