Domino

History

Domino is the result of a secret government super soldier program called Project Armageddon, originally located somewhere within the Florida Everglades. Born to a mother whom had volunteered for the program, Beatrice would later head a cult which would be responsible for helping her daughter to escape. Life within this facility had been brutal; while Neena had undergone significant training by top tier professionals it came at the price of abuse, degradation, experimentation, and trauma.

One thing training couldn't take into account is the peculiar manifestation of her power. It began as a subtle one, alright. The program leads figured that the genetic manipulation had simply failed to result in a proper mutant as anticipated. In reality her power had just begun to activate before her escape, resulting in equipment failures and the freak death of a commanding officer before Beatrice had come to her aid. The timing could not have been any better, once deemed to be a failure Neena had been scheduled for the dissection table.

Soon after Neena had been dropped off at a church in Chicago where she would spend a few more years of her life before she was old enough to strike out on her own. Out of fear of the Project finding her she soon fled the country altogether. For a time she tried to bury her past, to find a life of her own outside of the fighting and violence. This eventually led her into joining shipwreck salvaging crews and coastal treasure hunters where she became an excellent swimmer on top of having a knack to know just where to look to find the goods. A few more years passed relatively peacefully until one day when pirates caught up to the ship she had been working on. No one else knows what happened that morning, though the reports of the pale spot-eyed girl had already started getting around.

Armed with stolen treasure, battered old weapons and a harsh reminder that she cannot escape her past, Neena ended up in Madripoor and began working as a mercenary there and abroad. Through various gigs she had been hired for protection duty for another mutant, something of a precog named Milo Thurman. A relationship bloomed long enough for her to take his last name in marriage and earn the nickname "Domino," though it would quickly come to a cruel end. Madripoor was rapidly becoming unsafe. The merc and pirateering networks run far and wide and they now had a unified target. As much as she wanted to think she could take on the world, reality was not quite so optimistic. There is safety in numbers. Safety which she was increasingly in need of. She only needed to find it.

The answer lies in the coming registration act back in America. Like it or not, Neena's a fighter. Not only could she have a common enemy with her own kind, by coming to join this fight she can try her odds of finding some fire support of her own. It had been a nice vacation but now it's time for her to get back to work.

Recent Events

Secretly on Warren Worthington's payroll.

A current member of the X-Men, though one rarely seen.

She's been doing well for herself skipping around New York's many bars and winning at various gambling endeavors.

Since mandatory Registration went active she has been helping shuttle metahumans out of the city, often funding the operation with her own resources. At one point this included help from a Brotherhood official.

During the DPS raid of Mutant Town something had snapped in her brain, leading to the unwarranted deaths of several officers. She's been keeping a much lower profile since then.

Contacted Tony Stark about a peculiar humanoid bug.

Personality

Intense, strong-willed, unforgiving, and often demanding, the confidence in Domino's motions and the determination in her eyes run counter to the feeling that everyone is a potential enemy. Manage to somehow gain her trust and she'll have your back regardless of the consequences. Otherwise, loyalty can always be sold to the highest bidder and Neena's no different.

RP Hooks

  • Mercenary, Worldwide
  • Used to operate in Madripoor
  • Former oceanic treasure hunter
  • Drinker & gambler
  • Quietly helping unregistered metahumans to escape NYC

Character Sheet

PROBABILITY MANIPULATION: A power with endless applications and next to no deliberate control, Domino possesses a subconsciously triggered psionic field which subtly influences her environment in ways which might benefit her, or hinder anyone opposing her. So long as a trick is physically possible, even a one in a trillion chance, she has the power to make it happen.

SUPERCHARGED REFLEXES: Part of Domino's luck is being in the right place at the right time. When that fails her probability manipulation can pick up the slack. She can move incredibly quickly, even fast enough to dodge bullets, but she has to see it coming in order to react to it.

Miscellaneous

"I've had my beauty sleep. Time to get ugly."

"Yeah, hi, I'm looking for the 'giant prophesying insects' department? Because I just picked one up in Midtown holding a stone tablet with your financial lord and savior etched into it, do you know that extension by chance?"
