Meggan

History

Meggan Puceanu was born in rural England to a Romanichal family. She had her mutant power from birth, and immediately changed to become fuzzy and warm in order to stay cozy in the cold; and her ears expanded, because they were wet… and fortunately for her her parents merely resolved to hide their freakish child rather than throwing her in the river. She grew up in isolation until an encounter with Captain Britain and his telepathic sister revealed to her that, first, she was in fact able to change shape, and second, that inside, she was beautiful.

And she tried, and she was! And oh, she loved Captain Britain, and they had many adventures together, especially with the visiting X-Men, who Captain Britain associated with - for his sister and his older brother were both mutants, although he seemed not to be. Things, unfortunately, went south, and Meggan chose - with great difficulty and wind-up - to take a long, perhaps permanent break, and to come to the United States, where nothing bad ever happens at all.

Recent Events

She was briefly married to a demon.

Personality

Meggan Puceanu is a kind and open-hearted person who has been through a great deal of nonsense in life that has left her with an attachment to passionate causes and her first big semi-breakup.

Meggan has been steeped in adventurous stories and holds herself to a heroic sort of standard of behavior, in terms of what she will do to ruffians and surrendering Skrulls. She has no real problem with violence but restrains herself from hurting more than she has to, although she is often glad (or eager) to humiliate people who get up her nose… usually, though not entirely, through crime.

On a personal level she is exuberant and caring, although she has occasionally had difficulty with boundaries due to her empathic mutations giving her issues. She is easy to get along with and also easy to boss round, although she is easier to shame than to guilt-trip.

Character Sheet

EMPATHY: Meggan is capable of perceiving the emotions of others in a literal sense, as well as being able to read the mood and energy of a room or the feelings of people to whom she is closely connected, even if they are very far apart. She can also project her own feelings out in a more literal way - although it has to be an emotional state that she actually is experiencing, rather than simple "emotional control."

(Disclaimer: This ability is governed by the game's consent policy and cannot dictate another character's reaction or actions without explicit consent to do so. Attempted IC use of this ability does not guarantee success.)

PEAK FORM: Meggan has optimized her bodily performance and is strong enough to flip a car, tough enough to handle a fistfight with several strong men, and quick enough to avoid those strong men's swung bats - without looking particularly different from a normal human. Other than the elf ears. She is also, on an incidental basis, highly resistant to ambient cold, a legacy of childhood trauma.

She can optimize herself to be much stronger or to be able to handle all kinds of environments as long as they are not incompatible with life at all. (Radiated wasteland yes: stellar photosphere, probably not.) These alterations, however, are going to be blatantly physically obvious (gills, huge muscles, etc.) when relevant.

SEEING THE CLEAR LIGHT: Meggan is naturally sensitive to subtle flows of occult and psychic energy, which is usually a rather subliminal thing. However, it *does* mean that she can sense and even visually "see" strong emissions. This means that she can spot out magic or psychic business - or rather, that it is happening, even if she cannot actually tell what it is. At least directly.

SHAPESHIFTING: Meggan can change her shape, often quite drastically, although she cannot greatly leave the humaniform bodyplan (tails/wings and similar are doable) or become something completely non-biological. Within those parameters she can accomplish quite a bit, including exactly imitating someone else (though this requires some close observation) and, to a limited extent, imitating the superpowers of others. This is easiest for physical powers, will be kind of approximate for "energy projection" sorts of powers, and cannot really be done at all for psionic or mental powers. (Although, see above.)

Doing more than small amounts of "energy projection" sorts of things will cause disruptions in the local environment, as Meggan is channeling the ambient energy of the bio/magisphere rather than just, like, producing it from the Mutant Dimension.

ALSO SHE CAN FLY: Meggan is capable of flying through the air. This usually leaves a contrail after her hair which has a characteristic sparkle effect. She has enough jets to cross the Atlantic overnight during the winter without exhausting herself, but does not set speed records otherwise.
