Sheren Wu 吴雪莲
GLASS - Heroes VS Villains contest entry: villain
Born with a pale skin and pure white hair, her parents fittingly named her ‘snow lotus’. Though her beauty was evident to them, after years of prejudice and bullying Sheren was left alone and insecure. With her distinct appearance and extreme sensitivity to light, fitting in was never an easy task. When she was only 12years old her classmates thought to pull a funny prank when they held her down and made her look directly at the sun after which a severe case of ultraviolet keratitis followed. 7 days confined in a dark room, Sheren started to notice changes to her sight. What was a pitch black room became clearly visible. In one way or another, her body healed the damage and adapted to her situation so she could see beyond the standard spectrum. She would continue to develop this new ability while carefully protecting her eyes from bright light with sunglasses or tinted contacts.
When she was old enough to leave her parents’ house, she decided to leave her bad memories behind and travel to New York to make a new start. It wouldn’t take long before she was scouted to be a model, and things started to rapidly change from there. In the world of high fashion, to be unique was a forte. Sheren’s fame rose skyhigh and the attention and praise was intoxicating. Sheren began celebrating uniqueness, and was soon in search of more and more, using her ability to see things like a changing body temperature in her advantage and using her influence and following to push her own agenda. She loved finally being in control.
Naturally, when she learned there were others with special abilities like her, she had to put a stop to it. And so started her campaign and carefully devised plans to eliminate the likes of David Dunn and Kevin Wendell Crumb. But will it stop there?
Jura is my very first OC ever to be used in a big story I made with my sister, and a lot of good memories are attached to this character. Even though I rarely RP anymore and don't get to draw a lot of manga in the game art field nowadays, this is really where it all started.
