Hawkgirl by MissScarfbeard Hawkgirl by MissScarfbeard
Another one? Actually I had her popping around my head before Chloris. I decided to flesh her out more though and like her design. Her personality is more similar to mine I guess......so yeah!

-----

BASIC STATS
Secret ID: Laurel Appleton
Superhero Alias: Hawkgirl
Group / Alliance Affiliation(s): Young Justice, the Super Galaxy Princess Alliance

Nickname(s): Tweety, Lore, HG
Age: 16

Hair Type: Choppy in back jaw length in front with side bangs that brush her right eye

Physical Description: Athletic

Personality
General Personality: Laurel tends to be optimistic in a sarcastic way(“Well. It could alway be worse.”) Tends to be bold and dominant when she’s Hawkgirl, but reverts back to being quiet when not. She tends to startle easily and is susceptible to self doubts.

Good Traits: Quick leaner, realistic, takes charge when necessary, patient
Bad Traits: Bad at multi tasking, detached, selfish, procrastinator

Quirks: Tends to dance when bored (nothing more than swaying or shimmying), can only clean/bake to music, sleeps sideways on her mattress
Hopes: To be accepted by society without being a heroine
Fears: She is deathly afraid of thunder and lightning and refuses to move from her closet when it happens, she’s also afraid of falling out of the sky and being rejected

Memorable Quote(s): “Your face is [insert any adjective or verb here].” “I don’t even know.” “...and this is my life.”

Relationships ADD INTO THIS SECTION AS NECESSARY, LIKE FAMILY MEMBERS
Closest Friends:
She doesn’t have many close friends due to her withdrawing into herself after she sprouted wings. She has many acquaintances, but tends to keep to herself outside of being Hawkgirl
Enemies: 
Anyone who manages to wrong her in some way. It usually tends to be petty such as one time she was jipped on french fries. She never went back there.
Girlfriend(s)/Boyfriend(s): None. She says she doesn’t have time, but it’s more of a self esteem and fear of rejection thing.

Battle
Power(s): Flight due to large avian wings that sprout from her shoulder blades, enhanced strength, training in combat with a mace

POWER/ABILITY 1: Laurel has large wings that grant her flight
PROS: Has the ability to fly and dive similar to a falcon
CONS: Diving too fast tends to make her dizzy and she does tire out due to flying either extremely fast or being agile

POWER/ABILITY 2: Enhanced strength
PROS: She can lift her body weight easily
CONS: When she tires out or uses it extensively the lactic acid buildup is enough to lay her out

POWER/ABILITY 2: Weapons training
PROS: Laurel is trained to use a mace in combat and is rather good at smashing things
CONS: She isn’t trained in any other combat so if she looses it, all she can really do is throw her weight around

Weapon(s): Spiked battle mace, utility knife
Style: Smash stuff and avoid being hit
Strengths: Tends to be agile due to dance background, she’s got good common sense, knows when to ask for help
Weaknesses: Less agile in the air and her wings on land throw her off balance, once she’s down she’s down

Background:
Laurel was born an only child to a normal middle class family in Star City. She was an honor student and on the dance team in middle and high school. One day in chemistry there were some idiots messing around and they ended up spilling some on Laurel when she snapped at them. She was rushed to the emergency showers and then sent to the hospital where they pronounced her fine and able to go home. She went to bed feeling fine but woke up in the middle of the night with chills, fever, and intense pain in her shoulders. Her parents found her hunched over in her bedroom with large wings sprouting out of her shoulders. Unsure of what to do they pulled her from school and began to teach her from home. Laurel began to withdraw and fall into depression from lack of social contact. She began to sneak out at night and began to teach herself how to fly. One night she was flying over Star City and saw a building on fire. She flew closer and saw a little girl dangling out a window. The little girl slipped and Laurel dove to save her, but fled when she was bombarded with reporters. Green Arrow and Black Canary witnessed it and relayed it to the Justice League. Hawkwoman decided to interview her and became her mentor. Laurel began her training somewhat unwillingly and is now struggling with her parents getting divorced.

first man, the name confuses me with the JLA animated series hawkgirl.
second. why in the world do schools have chemicals that can make girls sprout wings. Also just sprouting wings is bad because the bone structure for a human body is way to heavy just for sprouting wings. Birds have air in their bones to help them fly. And if people to have wings their whole chemistry would change. so how does her work. plus if she does have wings she would also waste more energy then a regular person.

....does it really matter? Why would an experimental explosion cause someone to gain super speed and not just die? There are also a few different hawkgirls, just like there are two batmans, a few flash, and multiple green lanterns. They're comic book characters were aliens exist and became heroes of the planet; it doesn't have to be correct in every way, it's fiction. I also already said she can't maintain flight for very long because it takes too much energy.

because first he was hit my chemicals and a lightning stuck him. it was by pure luck, plus you can't just get hit becuase in the Flashpoint comic, Barry who lost his powers as flash, he devised an experiment to have lightning hit him but when it did, it failed. but when lightning hit him by total luck he gained his powers back. True their a few different hawkgirls but that was one was not available... btw the batman does not count because he came back to life and then created batman incorporated. Though its true for lanterns i have nothing to say because its an organization. not a single person. Dude Comic book characters have logic. oh i see, i didn't see that but how does she fly, isn't her body to heavy to fly?

Do you have time to rp in the SGPA chatroom like right now? That could be easier than through posts

Laurel: It would be nice to get away from them for a bit. They can be so..patronizing.

I'm not much of an rp-er, or at least have never really tried....I also have too much going on right now. But maybe someday.
