▼ | PERSONALITY TRAITS : |
Kassandra is nervous and shy. She is usually soft spoken, and really believes that no one really wants to hear what she's got to say. If she's on her own, she seems to open up more and can be very warm hearted and sweet. However, when faced with too many peope, she goes right back into her little shell.▼ | SKILLS : |
Illusions, singing, swimming, has good grades and is generally intelligent.▼ | BACK STORY : |
Kassy is from a small east coast town. There is a low population of Metahumans, so she grew up pretty isolated. She used to travel the country with her parents, her mother being a well known advocate for Metahuman rights, and her father assisting in the endeavor. It was slightly ironic that the 2 of them had a metahuman child. Not everyone liked what Kassandra's parents did, and her mother fell mysteriously ill after a run in with some anti metahuman protesters. Unfortunately, she died shortly after that. Kassy's father was distraught. He lost the love of his life, and in his grief, decided to drop Kassy off at his sister and brother in law's house, promising to return to her. Unfortunately, he never did.
Kassy grew up with her aunt and uncle who really didn't want much to do with her. Her aunt was not good to her, belittling her at every turn and calling her a 'freak' and 'disaster' on a regular basis. While she tried to make friends growing up, she was already of the assumption that everyone else would hate her too, so she wasn't very good at reaching out to other people. Most of the time, she practiced her powers in secret, honing them until they were under her control. However, she is still very untested, due to hiding her nature most of her life.
Kassy was working at a part time job, trying to work up money to get out of town, when her invitation to the Academy came. If her family hadn't been glad to be rid of her, she would have found some way to get there. While she is very unclear about what she can actually do, a small part of her is eager to step out of the shadows of the past.

▼ | POWER CLASSIFICATION : |
Type-Blue▼ | POWER DESCRIPTION : |
Illusions: Kassandra can trick all of the 5 senses with various illusions. She is best with visual and auditory illusions, though her range is slowly expanding to the rest of the senses. Her most complex tricks so far are to make herself completely invisible, imitate the look and sound of someone's voice after studying them, and to make a “gunshot” noise in someone's ears. She is also slowly learning touch illusions, but so far hasn't gotten past a tap on the shoulder or a brush of a hand. When she gets better, this could expand to actual pain or other sensations. ▼ | LIMITS : |
Kassy's powers have a range of about 30 feet. She can trick up to 5 people at once, with her most versatile trick, invisibility, which she can hold for up to 5 full minutes. The more simple an illusion is, the longer and more people she can affect. She is also working on smell illusions, but so far hasn't gotten past creating a whiff of fresh baked cookies. Pleasant, but useless.
Kassy's illusions can be 'beaten' if they don't quite match up with reality. An individual who is paying enough attention could notice that what they are sensing is not real. She is still practicing and gaining experience, so this could improve with time. However, there will always be people who will see through her easier than others.▼ | WEAKNESSES : |
Kassandra's illusions can't work through techology yet. Someone seeing her through a camera or other device won't be fooled. She also has to concentrate to a certain degree, and the illusions will drop if she's properly distracted or hindered. Currently, she is someone who is easily cowed by screaming or harsh criticisms. She's also a little leery about teamwork – she thinks everyone else will be miles ahead of her.
