Thank you for your interest in Pride.
Her real name is Mariana Rodrigues, the daughter of a Brazilian American running an accounting practice for small businesses in southern California. Her mother is from Colombia running a small flower shop.
Pride’s former alias is American Daughter but only current members of the American Daughters Association can use the name. If you Ask Mariana, she quit but if you ask the association, she was fired. The American Daughters Association is like the girl scouts for super girls. Once eighteen, members of the program that qualify are offered employment as an American Daughter. (In my story Superheroes are highly commercialized. For individuals to actually go out and be a superhero they rely on the backing of multinational corporations for funding, legal protection and logistical support. This has resulted in the individual hero being reduced to the equivalent of a cubical worker and multinationals operating as security/police/army hybrids.)
Pride and the American Daughters Association parted ways over conduct violations. The association was cracking down on how its heroes saved the day, damage control, polishing up the family friendly image and their wholesome family branding. This of course was interfering in the success of the hero work and putting members at greater risk. Pride’s noncompliance eventually resulted in her termination. Now’s she’s in a crunch to be employed again as the family needs the money.
Pride’s power set consists of Flight, Speed, Strength, Invulnerability and what I’m calling Pictographic Transmutation. Pictographic Transmutation is her tattoos granting her temporary additional powers. For example a red star grants flaming fists, a blue star control over water, etc. The tattoos are like buttons, unfortunately, and need to be pressed each time she wants to use a particularly effect.
