Jumper. A human that is able to teleport to places seen before. For example, Thracia can ‘jump’ to a place if she’s seen it in a photograph, but she can’t teleport to places that she’s never seen.
Red, almost orange-ish/fiery.
5 feet, 6 inches.
Springfield XD-9 Tactical 9mm pistols
, also known as Blacktails. These guns aren’t very powerful, but they have increased accuracy, and can be wielded effectively due to the addition of the lasers attached.
Thracia is very strong willed, determined and almost headstrong. She is observant and remembers most things that other people would not. She is an excellent driver (said to be the best in the CIA ) and wields her guns with great efficiency. Her teleportation is perfect for combat, as it allows her to dodge attacks and return her own attacks without much trouble.
She is still human, and a single wound or bullet can put her out of commission. Due to her abilities, she is brash and headstrong, sometimes teleporting right into the midst of danger without realizing it; and will sometimes depend too much on her abilities to the point where, if she can’t use it in a certain situation, she might deem the situation ‘hopeless’.
‘ Jumping’ forms the core of her skills. She is able to teleport to places she’s seen before, and there is no limit to distance or the amount of times she can do it. When she teleports, she leaves behind a visible ripple in the air, a wormhole (called a Jump Scar). She can teleport people or things, but can’t teleport anything too large or too heavy and not able to move; however, she can easily teleport anything (even if it weighs tons) if it’s moving at a good enough speed.
When teleporting into an area, she can, if she chooses, send out a shockwave as soon as she enters and damage the surroundings. It is most powerful at the point of entry: underneath her craters or cracks, depending on the type of ground.
The same shockwave can be sent out when teleporting away from a place.
She can use her teleportation skills to fight as well. During a scuffle, she can teleport to dodge attacks, sometimes just seemingly disappearing for a moment and then reappearing in the same place right after the attack. Continuous teleporting and attacking work well in bringing an enemy to his knees. She can continuously evade and return attacks, disorienting her opponent(s) with her abilities.
She also has the uncanny ability to stuff large things into small containers or spaces (no innuendo attached). For example, she packed one suitcase for a trip, but found it was too heavy. When she opened it, she had to toss out numerous guns along with a rocket launcher and its ammo.
Thracia is very serious about her job (and her position), although she may not seem like it. She is easily excited, and goes to the ends of the earth to prepare if she’s given a case. Although, once she gets bit by the shopping bug, she has a hard time quitting. Obsesses over silk clothing, especially undergarments. She’s usually extremely upbeat and mouths off to her opponents when she feels like it. Thracia is spontaneous, even impulsive, and will flirt back when flirted with; Thracia doesn't usually go beyond kissing, but if she gets turned on enough...well.... She’s extremely attracted to fiery personalities, but hangs out around mellow/cool people to balance things out...most of the time. Even though she’s excited and upbeat most of the time, she has a number of
that’ll send her temper to the sun, and then some. The buttons are easily pushed to make her go off, and comically, all her surroundings seem to darken when she’s pissed, spelling impending doom.
Thracia Dayna was born in a small town in an English speaking country. She was born into a very poor home, but not poor enough to care for a child. Her mother had no skills to speak of (and an amount of berserk buttons that made her father slightly afraid of his wife), and her father was only good enough to be a lower-than-low ranked officer at a police station. He was put into this job after someone from the precinct allowed him to join, returning a favour.
Because her mother was easily angered, a young Thracia spent some of the time at the precinct, helping her father, and the another part of the time out on the streets where she picked up her attitude and found out her attraction to fiery, fun, wild people. The rest of her time was spent doing fairly well in school. Although she was excellent in physical education, her grades in the other subjects were above average at best.
Her time on the street was also when she discovered her ability to jump. Being attracted to fiery people doesn’t mean the same thing as being attracted to good people. It was in this way, she was pushed onto the road and by the time she looked at the oncoming vehicle and raised her hands to brace herself, she found herself in her room, with the whole thing in disarray and large cracks on the floor, caused by her teleportation in.
Growing up in the precinct, coupled with her grades and physical prowess (and cheating: her ability to teleport), allowed her to become familiar with the officers, and as she turned into a young woman, it allowed her to join the precinct as a higher-ranked police officer with a little ease. During this time, she had to learn how to drive and when she did go for lessons, she found that she had a natural knack for driving, doing each things expertly (even hastily) and coming out with top scores; and while she may seem reckless on the road, she was careful and always on the lookout.
Thracia then learnt something from her father. She had an older brother that her parents had left to someone else (this was the favour; her father had to ‘pay’ by working for that man in the precinct, giving part of the salary to him). The man who had ‘supposedly’ took her elder brother in was dead, along with the rest of his family, but her brother’s body was not found. Both father and daughter were convinced that her brother was still alive.
As such, she was a great police officer, and rose through the ranks in no time, soon becoming a detective, intending to use resources to find her brother. However, she would not stay in that position for very long. She happened, by chance or destiny, onto the supercar project. She happened onto RAIVE, who was being hacked into at the time and was being used as a getaway vehicle.
This meeting was the beginning of Thracia losing her current job and getting introduced to the world of SIS (Secret Intelligence Service), or MI6. Because of her involvement with that incident, and her current skills, the higher-ups found that she was more of an asset than a liability, and decided to give her a job of partnering with the supercar, RAIVE. They were partnered for a while, before things went haywire, and RAIVE was sent out on his own without her as the driver.
Because of this ‘loss’ the higher-ups decided to put Thracia out in the field on her own, as a ‘semi-freelance agent’, basically ‘unemployed until you’re called in’, which is ever so often. MI6 keeps tabs on her, and allows her to move and use resources freely, but sometimes if they have need of her in the area she’s in, they call on her and she responds.
