Gamora

History

Recent Events

Eventually the newly-formed GotG head to Earth for some well-deserved R&R — sans Gamora, who was still very interested in the Soulstone, and also highly motivated to find Nebula and stab her with things. She parted ways with a grudging promise to look for them when she'd taken care of some 'family business.' In the interim they seem to have gotten themselves mixed up in an Asgardian bender and a tricky situation with SHIELD on Earth, a demon bear, an invasion of other, non-them aliens, a Mistress of Magic and a lot of other things that are probably going to make Gamora frown at Peter Quill like all of it was his fault, because it almost certainly was.

She's definitely not up-to-date on the recent push for metahuman registration taking place on that backwater little blue-green planet — a shame, because one imagines that's going to be extremely relevant to a six foot tall green woman's interests.

Time will tell.

Personality

She's as hard as a coffin nail, but not without a capacity for warmth and camaraderie. Her independence from Thanos is recent enough that she still struggles with moral questions (when she thinks to ask them at all), but beneath her seething, ever-present desire for revenge exists a sharp, curious mind long deprived of the joys of life as a free woman…and maybe even a spark of something that yearns for greater meaning, and better (though not necessarily noble) purpose.

For Gamora, the shortest distance between two points is always through, and Thanos has seen to it that there are few obstacles sturdy enough to stand up to her when she takes that approach. She's known as The Deadliest Woman In The Galaxy — the kind of superlative title that would condemn its object to universal mockery if they failed for even a moment to live up to it. That no one seems eager to laugh at her for it is testament to her skill — a thing that can't help but inform her personality. Confident to the point of arrogance, reckless, fearless and even ecstatic in a fight, prone to impulse decisions and quick to escalate a situation when piqued, it would be fair to consider her volatile even at the best of times; however, like most apex predators she's well past feeling as though she has anything to prove to the vast majority of other people. She knows what she is. She knows what she's capable of. She won't hesitate to fight, but she's also unlikely to pick fights for no reason.

In the wake of her awkward resurrection and abandonment of Thanos, she finds herself balancing the need to retain command over her own life with the need for meaningful connections with other people, and a feeling of belonging, of purpose. Her life has been a lonely one, and now she's separated from the one constant presence at the center of it. Not only that: the task for which she was groomed is in a sense complete, leaving her somewhat rudderless. Unholy vengeance can only occupy so much of her time.

RP Hooks

- Space? Space! SPAAAAAAAAA-

She's from it. Perhaps you are also from it. Or perhaps you are not from it, and interested in people who are.

- Mercenary Assassin

As the great Krombopulos Michael said, 'I'm an assassin. I'm very discreet, I have no code of ethics. I will kill anyone anywhere. Children, animals, old people, doesn't matter. I just love killing.'

- Registration

Perhaps you have an opinion about it? Perhaps your opinion is like, or unlike, Gamora's?

- What Even Is Earth?

As planets go, Earth is broadly considered a low-technology backwater by most cosmic races, but there's no denying it has character. That makes Gamora a bit of a stranger in a strange land. Just wait until somebody tells her what 'vajazzling' means.

Character Sheet

Bionic Enhancements

Thanos modified his daughter's body not once but several times over the course of her time with him, utilizing highly advanced technology and bionic parts of his own design. She has superhuman strength, superhuman speed, enhanced reflexes, superhuman durability — Thanos replaced her skeleton almost completely with a 'special lightweight alloy, nearly indestructible' — and an exponentially accelerated healing factor that make her virtually unkillable through any typical means.

Resistance to Reality Distortion

Along with a number of Gamora's more advanced augmentations, Thanos gave Gamora the ability to resist the warping of reality — a necessary tool for a would-be assassin of the Magus.
