Charlie is determined to be a superhero even if she dies trying. The dark take would be what else does she have in her life at this point to lose having lost her family and her home. Not that she is viewing it fatalistically because that just isn't her. She is putting on a mask, hitting the streets of Gotham, and showing the world that she can be just as good at this crime fighting and saving people thing as her idol Batgirl with optimism and a deep well of youthful hope.

She seems to have boundless energy and trouble focusing her attention for great lengths of time. She may mean well and be a ray of sunshine, but some people can find her a bit annoying. It is likely due to a mix of brain chemistry and the chaos magic but she can't help it.

She hasn't had the best childhood and that coupled with her deeply personal trauma has caused a lot of problems for her. She can easily end up acting younger than a sixteen year old highschool dropout should act. Then again she is a sixteen year old high school dropout, how mature are they anyways.

Sweet Optimism:
She really is a good person and a good girl. She has a really big heart and genuinely wants to help people and for people to like and accept her. She wants friends, she wants love, and she wants acceptance. She is also terribly optimistic despite her trauma that things are going to work out for the best. The strong need for acceptance friends and love may all be due to her trauma though.

Accelerated Healing:
Charlotte also has good degree of accelerated healing directly connected with her 'bouncing' ability. When healing via bouncing, she feels temporarily drained and cannot bounce again as quickly. The amount of delay is relative to the amount of healing done by the bounce.

For example, If she were to be shot in the belly with a bullet, the wound would be non-serious on first bouncing to another location, and healed completely on a second bounce.

Grievous wounds from things such as fire or acid, multiple gunshot wounds, or those from energy weapons will become non-critical after one bounce and healed after several. This kind of healing leaves her drained and very sluggish with the drain mentioned above.

Loss of limbs or entire organs are currently beyond her ability to heal with a 'bounce'.

If she is rendered unconscious she will not be able to heal until she is conscious and able to 'bounce'.

Charlotte has the ability to teleport (or, as she calls it, "bouncing") vast distances without error. She wills herself where she wants to go and then she does so by appearing and disappearing in a burst of pink-purple smoke.

The teleport's arrival itself is flawless, but this has nothing to do with where she can teleport to.

Misfit can jump to a familiar person (met a few times or had an in depth conversation or encounter with). Consent based if a PC. Otherwise Misfit has to know the approximate location she is aiming for. I.e. what building, what floor, and roughly where in the building. She could not jump to "the control panel with the self-destruct for the missile" but could jump to "the control room on the 4th floor, southeast corner of LexCorp's Gotham office".

An even bigger restriction is that she is only able to teleport herself because no other living objects survives bouncing with her.

Peak Human:
She has peak human physical characteristics including strength, agility, stamina, and reflexes. This may be due to her homo-magi genetics and heritage. Nothing ridiculous or even remotely superman-esque but she can take out street level villains and go toe to toe with more seasoned ones or serious threats safely.

Security Bypass:
Bouncing will place her in a place safe from immediate detection by normal technological security at the moment of entry. I.e. she won't be in front of a moving camera, but she might only have seconds to get out of the way. Her appearance won't set off a motion detector, but moving afterwards might set it off.

This does not necessarily prevent detection by living beings present.

To avoid magic or otherworldly sensors it would be a TP / staff approval power.

In particular, the chaos magic emanating from her Bounces is not 'muffled' and is prone to being noticed by those with magic senses.

Charlotte is a Homo Magi of an unusual heritage and she is currently totally untrained in her studies of the occult. Sure she may have lots of potential but currently all of it is expressed through instinctual use of powers like her 'Bounce' at this point. She is so green and untrained she doesn't even realize she has magic vs. a meta-gene.

This is solely untrained potential. Any powers gained from it require +request for additions to the +sheet.

Charlotte is really remarkably good at video games (at least according to herself).

Hand To Hand:
Really Impressive fighting skills for someone who as far as she knows hasn't taken any classes. While she hasn't had the training as far as she remembers to really apply them fully there is a lot of muscle memory there waiting for the conscious mind to harness.

There are some limitations though. Due to the way her memories were suppressed when she fully flexes her chops it causes some cognitive dissonance so she downplays her abilities. She also craves the attention and training of her superhero idols which she wouldn't get as much of if she excelled out of the gate so she holds back.

Currently she has been living in her condemned mostly burned apartment building in Metropolis and is 'commuting' (aka bouncing) to Gotham to fight crime. She has very little resources other than some money she has recently taken from muggers she stopped.

It may be that she is covering up for deep seated feelings of loss. Loss of her family. Loss of control of her life. No matter what the cause is though she acts very cocky and overconfident.

On some level she really blames herself for her mother and brothers death, if only she had been able to do something about it. She probably needs therapy but then what vigilante doesn't, who in their right mind puts on a costume and beats up muggers. Oh right this also comes with a side order of nightmares she doesn't talk about.

Hero Worship:
She craves the attention and training from her superhero idols. On the surface she wants their acceptance and attention which is not unusual for a teenager. Deeper down what she really wants is a family to care about her, support her, and love her. Thinking she let them down would be crushing, and she is likely to express it as trying twice as hard to earn their praise and love.

The people she was hidden from would surely like to find out where she is and who she is. They would like to snuff out her family lineage forever. Thankfully they currently don't know where she is or who she is as they have deep resources both mundane and magical.

Her teleportation power is dangerous to other living creatures. She can not use it to directly save anyone. She could not save her mother and sibling, an event that has left some deep mental scars. Whatever the cause, be it chaos magic or something else, her power is personal and can not save people by taking passengers. This limitation and the consequences of trying really disturbs her. She is not the kind of person who would kill and she is not going to use her power to do that. The thought makes her sick and she tries to avoid thinking about it and just will not do it.

The other side of her optimism is her naivety. Despite her tragic backstory which drives her to try to help other people she genuinely thinks things will work out for the best most of the time. This is a world of heroes right?

She lost her mom and sister in the fire and doesn't have any other family members to fall back on. The kingdom she doesn't remember in Gemworld was conquered and razed and her real parents killed. There is no fairy tale ending out there as far as real family goes for her.
