· Hero name: Rox Star
· Real name Cassandra Wu “Cass”
· Age: 19
o Race: Anglo-Asian
o Hair: short neck length Black with pink neon highlights, it lays flat on her head but she has cut ends so they have a spikey look.
o Eyes: dark brown
o Height: 5’8”
o Build: skinny with muscled overtones
o Hero outfit.
§ Mix of a J-pop school uniform with a dark grunge rock spin.
§ Electric purple choker with metal spike studs
§ White and pink blouse, with purple sleeves, a black neck ribbon, the sleeves have large black cuffs and right above the cuff sewn into the sleeve is a row of 6 metal leafs that look and are placed like dragon scales. The left sleeve is cut off, in its place down her arm is leather wrappings with 5 straps and buckles on the side, there are also 5 blue circles connected to each other by a strip of blue wires. She also wears Black corset with white stitching and four rows of metal grommets running down the front, over top of her blouse.
§ Black fingered gloves with an oval opening on the back of the hand.
§ Knee length violet skirt, separate black cloth diamond shaped strips with metal tips lay over top of the skirt, and are attracted only to the skirt only at the waist. Under the skirt she wears a thin pair of black jeans
§ Above the ankle black combat grunge boots with leather flap velcroed over the laces.
§ On her right hip is a small portable amplifier, about the size of a 1990’s pocket CD player. This is used as a pre-amp before her powers take over to boost the resulting sound wave to even stronger wave length. This is also how she added normal electric guitar sounds to her music while away from the stage.
o Sonic manipulation. Cass has the ability to manipulate the sonic vibrations to distort the sound wave to use in a variety of ways.
o Enhanced strength: Rox Star has used her sonic power as an artificial muscle stimulator; she has been using this technique for years giving her strength equal to that of an Olympic strongman.
o Sonic hallucination: by changing sound waves to a select few frequencies which cause a neural disruption in the human brain that manifest themselves as various hallucinations mostly sonic multi-colors clones of her.
o Sonic pressure wave: can be used as an offensive or defensive ability to blast away targets, can be focused in a narrow beam, or emanate outwards in all directions.
o Sonic barrier: a variation of the pressure wave, Rox Star can generate a wall of sound that can deflect thrown weapons and projectiles like bullets, and can also slightly throw off energy beams
o Vibration transference: amplifying the frequency of vibration objects, Rox Star can then transfer those vibrations into other objects through physical contact; the effect can be varied from disorienting her target to having the object vibrate itself to pieces.
o Sonic static build up: by enhancing the frequency of her sound waves Rox Star can cause the air molecules around her to heat up and build a static charge, enough build up and a she can call in bolts of lightning to strike her target. The leather rapping on her right arm contain special electric capacitors to store up the static electricity and then realize it through a punch her Guitar, these attack are not as powerful as the lighting strikes but they are still strong enough to stun an average human.· Weaknesses and limitations
o Sound she can manipulate can only be generated by a source outside her body like her guitar or the metal scales on her shirt sleeve
o The Special lighting strike attack takes several minutes of static build up before it can be used. charging her arm wrapping takes less time but is also less powerful.
o Limited hand to hand combat training.
o Rox Star carries a special electric guitar modeled after a solid body Vox Phantom, the guitar is made of a solid block of high strength plastic, wrapped in a layer of tungsten and finally coated in carbon-nano tubes. This construction means it is nearly indestructible allowing Rox Star to use it as a very effective bludgeoning weapon.
o Cassandra’s Father was a royal navy sailor who met her mother while his ship was docked at Singapore. When they got married Cass’s mom moved to the UK with her now husband. After Cass was born she found her affinity for music as her father was a Classic rock fan, and he bought her a small guitar which she learned to play very well. Her father was later killed in a navel accident while on tour and in grief her mother returned to Singapore leaving Cass with her aunt and uncle on her father’s side. Continuing to go to school, she did not make many friends and her Aunt and uncle neglected the “unwanted burden”. She discovered her powers when she was in her room playing her guitar and she made her first sonic clone, who became her one and only friend. At 9 years old she ran away from her aunt and uncle and became a homeless child in the Birmingham, UK metropolitan area. She became a street rat and petty thief, moving from shelter to shelter. She was finally caught in the act of stealing a loaf of bread from a convince store. In the resulting chase she used her powers to disorient the cops chasing her. And she was finally brought to the attention of the British government as a superhuman.
o Flashfire(who was 12 at the time) was called in to try and find her and get her on the side of the government who was trying to build up its roster of superheroes as more of a way to keep an eye on them than to actually use them like the US.
o After Flashfire was able convince her to join up with the UK government she began her career as a small time Rock star traveling around the UK and playing at anything from small bars to large stadiums, her powers giving her the unique ability for a single person to play the entire band for a song using her sound clones and sonic manipulation to replicate all the sounds needed for a song, even the vocals.
o Cass has very eccentric and electric personality always loving a challenge and adventure. With a heavy British accent, even her heavy metal seriousness comes out charming and light hearted. She does love the spotlight, and thinks of most of her public life as a performance even serious superhero battles, she does not mind sharing the stage as long she does not feel she is being completely overshadowed or forced into the background. She calls everyone one around her “luv”. She does have a soft spot for homeless children and donates most of her earning as a music star to homeless charity organizations. Even with her powers being mainly useful in mid-range engagements she is not afraid to get in close and smash some heads with her guitar.
